OPINION

EDITOR’S NOTE Last week, I led a Q&A with Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton, the directors of the new Battle of the Sexes, after a screening at the Nick. It was my first time seeing the film, which is a complex but fun look at the 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, and maybe the most subversive sports movie I’ve ever seen (Lisa Jensen’s review is on page 58). Faris and Dayton, previously best known for their debut film Little Miss Sunshine, are obviously not your typical Hollywood people—and their Q&A responses were thoughtful and full of insightful behind-the-scenes secrets—but I have to say, what impressed me the most was the crowd. I’ve been part of quite a few events like

THE MOTHERPEACE HAS LANDED

Re: Fashion Issue (GT, 9/20): Great news about Vicki Noble and the Motherpeace [tarot deck]! About 25 years ago, I went to a women’s circle where the Motherpeace was being used for inspiration and self-reflection. It was my first experience of alternative, new interpretations of the tarot, and it was truly a life-changing evening! I have turned to it for help and understanding ever since. Over the years, I have found and appreciated other decks and oracular tools as well, but the Motherpeace is, and always will be, my main squeeze in the world of divination and psychic awareness. Kudos and congratulations to Vicki and her persistent vision and courageous, outward expression in this world we share. SHERRY CONABLE | SANTA CRUZ

STRAINED SYSTEM Your article with Phil Coturri (GT, 9/6) raises some good questions about marijuana but they need a deeper look.

this, and rarely are the questions from the audience as on-point as they were at the Nick Q&A. A couple of times, the audience questions were almost wordfor-word something I was planning to ask them, and I’m supposed to be doing this professionally! (Jury’s still out on that.) My point is simply that Santa Cruz has great film people—which, yeah, I already knew, but this was a nice reminder going into what has oddly become film festival season in Santa Cruz County. The Watsonville Film Festival (Oct. 5-8) and Santa Cruz Film Festival (Oct. 11-15) are both imminent, and in this week’s cover story I explain why the theme of “movies about movies”—and, more generally, “movies about art”—that pops up in many of this year’s entries (at both festivals!) is one that intrigues me so much. Hope to see you at the Mello Center this week, and the Tannery Arts Center next week! STEVE PALOPOLI | EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

He is right about the effects commercialization will have on medical and recreational marijuana. An article published on Aug. 30 stated that of the samples tested at Anresco Labs for the Bay Area Hempcon, 80 percent tested positive for pesticides, fungicides and/ or molds and microbes. This is a huge problem. I was Agricultural Director at WAMM for 20 years, and it was my job to ensure that our members received the highest quality, safest medicine. I did this by growing organic and never using any chemicals in any form. Lab testing did not exist at the time so it was the only way to be sure the medicine was clean. Since then, a lot of people have come into this “industry” because of the allure of big money. As a result, there is a general lowering of standards, to the detriment of patients/consumers. Mr. Coturri also mentions the issue of genetic quality, which is as important as testing clean. I know breeders, myself included, that work to preserve land race strains— or, as some folks like to say, heirloom strains. We also work to hybridize new strains to improve them for medical use. Mr. Coturri talks about the regulations as part of the problem. He is right. >6

While housing costs squeeze every spare coin out of our wallets and chase locals out of town, Santa Cruz city officials are handing out a booklet they call the 2017 Housing Conversation Kit to get people brainstorming solutions. The survey’s also available at cityofsantacruz. com/housing. It’s a nice way to gear up for Affordable Housing Week, which runs from Thursday, Oct. 19 through Saturday, Oct. 28, with 17 events planned. For information, visit santacruzcommunitycalendar.org.

New Santa Cruz Police Chief Andy Mills has impressed a lot of locals with what seems to be a fresh approach to running the SCPD. Mills will start holding community meetings next week, with a total of five forums through the end of the month—gatherings to serve downtown, the Westside, the Beach Flats, Midtown and the Ocean Street areas. For more information, visit santacruzpolice. com or call 420-5844.

OPINION

<4

I know some form of regulation is needed, but only because the government made marijuana illegal in the first place. This created the black market as we know it. Also, the government has been involved in price fixing. This was stated explicitly by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals during the WAMM lawsuit. It was done to keep prices artificially high. Thus, we have the costs of today. The regulations will also put a target on the backs of folks who grow, but don’t want to be in the system. Those crops not registered will be easily found and eradicated. That doesn’t mean those

growers are bad, just not registered. Although there are plenty of bad apples, as they say. At the moment, I am only cultivating true-to-type stable genetics for seed sales. I feel this is a way that I can have input into keeping higher standards, which was my original goal in the first place. I urge all patients/consumers to put pressure on cultivators and sellers to operate with the highest ethics possible. It will be for the benefit of all. And my use of the words “high” and “highest” were puns intended. MIKE CORRAL | DIRECTOR, FENIX GENETIX | SANTA CRUZ

REAL ESTATE IN

OLDERHOOD

Week of October 4 ARIES Mar21–Apr19 You wouldn’t expect a five-year-old child to paint a facsimile of Picasso’s Guernica or sing Puccini’s opera, La Boheme. Similarly, you shouldn’t fault your companions and you for not being perfect masters of the art of intimate relationships. In fact, most of us are amateurs. We may have taken countless classes in math, science, literature, and history, but have never had a single lesson from teachers whose area of expertise is the hard work required to create a healthy partnership. I mention this, Aries, because the next seven weeks will be an excellent time for you to remedy this deficiency. Homework assignments: What can you do to build your emotional intelligence? How can you learn more about the art of creating vigorous togetherness?

STUCK on how to move your stuff? House TOO BIG and needs REPAIRS?

TAURUS Apr20–May20 In accordance with the astrological omens, I invite you to slow down and create a wealth of spacious serenity. Use an unhurried, step-by-step approach to soothe yourself. With a glint in your eye and a lilt in your voice, say sweet things to yourself. In a spirit of play and amusement, pet and pamper yourself as you would a beloved animal. Can you handle that much self-love, Taurus? I think you can. It’s high time for you to be a genius of relaxation, attending tenderly to all the little details that make you feel at ease and in love with the world.

Kids giving too many OPINIONS? Ready to SIMPLIFY and ENJOY life?!

GEMINI May21–June20

I can help you move forward one step at a time.

“If an angel were to tell us something of his philosophies, I do believe some of his propositions would sound like 2 x 2 = 13.” So said the German scientist Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-1799). Now maybe you don’t believe in the existence of angels, and so you imagine his idea doesn’t apply to you. But I’m here to tell you that an influence equivalent to an angel will soon appear in your vicinity. Maybe it’ll be a numinous figure in your dreams, or a charismatic person you admire, or a vivid memory resurrected in an unexpected form, or a bright fantasy springing to life. And that “angel” will present a proposition that sounds like 2 x 2 = 13.

CANCER Jun21–Jul22 Unless you have an off-road vehicle, you can’t drive directly from North America to South America. The PanAmerican Highway stretches from Prudhoe Bay in northern Alaska to Ushuaia, Argentina—a distance of about 19,000 miles—except for a 100-mile patch of swampy rainforest in Panama. I’d like to call your attention to a comparable break in continuity that affects your own inner terrain, Cancerian—a grey area where two important areas of your life remain unlinked. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to close the gap.

Based in Korea, Samsung is a world leader in selling smartphones and other information technology. But it didn’t start out that way. In its original form, back in 1938, it primarily sold noodles and dried fish. By 1954, it had expanded into wool manufacturing. More than three decades after its launch as a company, it further diversified, adding electronics to its repertoire. According to my reading of the astrological omens, the next ten months should be an excellent time for you to do the equivalent of branching out from noodles and dried fish to electronics. And the coming six weeks will be quite favorable for formulating your plans and planting your seeds.

In my opinion, you’re not quite ready to launch full-tilt into the rebuilding phase. You still have a bit more work to do on tearing down the old stuff that’s in the way of where the new stuff will go. So I recommend that you put an “Under Construction” sign outside your door, preferably with flashing yellow lights. This should provide you with protection from those who don’t understand the complexity of the process you’re engaged in.

LIBRA Sep23–Oct 22 30 Years in Santa Cruz!

You’re a good candidate for the following roles: 1. a skeptical optimist who is both discerning and open-minded;

2. a robust truth-teller who specializes in interesting truths; 3. a charming extremist who’s capable of solving stubborn riddles; 4. a smooth operator who keeps everyone calm even as you initiate big changes; 5. an enlightened game-player who reforms or avoids games that abuse beauty’s power.

SCORPIO Oct23–Nov21 Actress and author Carrie Fisher wrote three autobiographies. Speed skating Olympics star Apolo Anton Ohno published his autobiography at age 20. The rascal occultist Aleister Crowley produced an “autohagiography.” To understand that odd term, keep in mind that “hagiography” is an account of the life of a saint, so adding “auto” means it’s the biography of a saint penned by the saint himself. I’m bringing up these fun facts in hope of encouraging you to ruminate at length on your life story. If you don’t have time to write a whole book, please take a few hours to remember in detail the gloriously twisty path you have trod from birth until now. According to my reading of the astrological omens, the best way to heal what needs to be healed is to steep yourself in a detailed meditation on the history of your mysterious destiny.

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec21 If you go to the Historical Museum of the Palatinate in Germany, you will see a jug of wine that was bottled in 1687. In accordance with astrological omens, Sagittarius, I suggest that you find a metaphorical version of this vintage beverage—and then metaphorically drink it! In my opinion, it’s time for you to partake of a pleasure that has been patiently waiting for you to enjoy it. The moment is ripe for you to try an experience you’ve postponed, to call in favors that have been owed to you, to finally do fun things you’ve been saving for the right occasion.

CAPRICORN Dec22–Jan19 If a late-night TV talk show called and asked me to be a guest, I’d say no. If People magazine wanted to do a story on me, I’d decline. What good is fame like that? It might briefly puff up my ego, but it wouldn’t enhance my ability to create useful oracles for you. The notoriety that would come my way might even distract me from doing what I love to do. So I prefer to remain an anonymous celebrity, as I am now, addressing your deep self with my deep self. My messages are more valuable to you if I remain an enigmatic ally instead of just another cartoony media personality. By the way, I suspect you’ll soon face a comparable question. Your choice will be between what’s flashy and what’s authentic; between feeding your ego and feeding your soul.

AQUARIUS Jan20–Feb18 A Canadian guy named Harold Hackett likes to put messages in bottles that he throws out into the Atlantic Ocean from his home on Prince Edward island. Since he started in 1996, he has dispatched over 5,000 missives into the unknown, asking the strangers who might find them to write back to him. To his delight, he has received more than 3,000 responses from as far away as Russia, Scotland, and West Africa. I suspect that if you launch a comparable mission sometime soon, Aquarius, your success rate wouldn’t be quite that high, but still good. What long-range inquiries or invitations might you send out in the direction of the frontier?

PISCES Feb19–Mar20 “Intensify” is one of your words of power these days. So are “fortify,” “reinforce,” and “buttress.” Anything you do to intensify your devotion and focus will be rewarded by an intensification of life’s gifts to you. As you take steps to fortify your sense of security and stability, you will activate dormant reserves of resilience. If you reinforce your connections with reliable allies, you will set in motion forces that will ultimately bring you help you didn’t even know you needed. If you buttress the bridge that links your past and future, you will ensure that your old way of making magic will energize your new way.

ICE raids target sanctuary cities nationwide, including around the Bay Area BY JENNIFER WADSWORTH

F

ederal immigration agents arrested 27 people from Santa Clara and San Francisco counties last week as part of a national fourday operation targeting so-called “sanctuary cities,” according to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). “Operation Safe City,” which wrapped on Wednesday, Sept. 27, focused on cities and regions with policies that prevent local police from being deputized to enforce immigration laws. In Santa Clara County, the Sheriff’s Office refuses to detain inmates for ICE and several cities prohibit their police from coordinating with immigration officials. Meanwhile, a bill that

would make California the first “sanctuary state” is a signature away from becoming law. The heavy-handed enforcement campaign was similar in scope to those in years past, says Northern California ICE spokesman James Schwab, but it was unprecedented in that the agency has never launched operations in response to city and regional policies. More than a cautionary reminder of the federal government’s enormous resources and hard immigration stance, the operation was a clear shot at communities that don’t fall into line with ICE’s policies or the campaign promises made last year by President Donald Trump. “Sanctuary jurisdictions that do

not honor detainers or allow us access to jails and prisons are shielding criminal aliens from immigration enforcement and creating a magnet for illegal immigration,” acting ICE Director Tom Homan said in a press release, ignoring the fact that courts have repeatedly ruled it unconstitutional for local police to comply with ICE detainer requests without probable cause. “As a result, ICE is forced to dedicate more resources to conduct at-large arrests in these communities.” Nationwide, the operation swept up 498 people from 42 countries for suspected immigration violations, ICE officials announced. As with past raids, immigration authorities framed the action as an >12

Driving on Laurel Street during the twoand-a-half months of Westside construction has been an inconvenience for many Santa Cruz drivers, but one resident who lives near the PG&E work site at the top of Laurel Street hill says he spotted something more serious than a navigational irritant. Silty excess asphalt has been piling up in the gutters along California and Laurel streets. David Callahan, an environmental activist and retired carpenter, is concerned that the dark sediment is falling directly into the nearby grates that lead down to Laurel Creek, a hidden, partially underground brook that wends its way to Neary Lagoon, and from there to the Monterey Bay. There are four drains at the intersection that flow into the creek below. For the last two months, Callahan says he watched Snelson, the company contracted by PG&E, do nothing about the asphalt piling up in the gutters, so he started making phone calls to the city, county, and state agencies. He even tried to reach the federal Environmental Protection Agency. “The level of their concern has been ‘We will respond to you as a citizen, but we don’t think it’s in our ballpark,’ or whatever. I find that completely shocking,” says Callahan, a 62-year-old with a scraggly white beard and a penchant for detailed storytelling, and once he gets going, it isn’t easy to slow him down. Callahan remembers joining a tactical nonviolence training through the San Jose Peace Center to protest nuclear power in 1979 following the infamous Three Mile Island accident in Pennsylvania. The experience, he says, taught Callahan and his young classmates, who were just learning to question authority, how much power they have in the world. Ever since, he explains, Callahan has kept his eyes open for ways to make a difference in his immediate community. Laurel Creek runs through Callahan’s backyard, just upstream from the California Street work site and the Laurel Street hill. >14

NEWS RAIDING ROOM <11 effort to protect the public, saying they zeroed in on immigrants with criminal records. However, many of the detainees’ crimes were nonviolent and a quarter of them were for driving under the influence. About a third of those arrested had no criminal record at all. None of last week’s raids happened in Santa Cruz County, which was shaken by an ICE operation in February, when local officers, including those from the Santa Cruz Police Department (SCPD), participated in an anti-gang operation that was later revealed to additionally target undocumented immigrants. Then-SCPD Chief Kevin Vogel claimed the department had been blindsided by the revelation. Santa Cruz is also a sanctuary city. Congressmember Jimmy Panetta (D-Carmel Valley) requested a report from ICE director Thomas Homan. Panetta’s press secretary

was unable to confirm by deadline if the freshman congressmember has received the report. Santa Cruz Mayor Cynthia Chase admits that it’s now an open question whether or not declaring sanctuary status makes a community any safer for immigrants, seeing as the feds are willing to go out of their way to target certain areas. “But from a philosophical standpoint, it’s vital that communities like us—and soon to be California—stand up for our values,” she explains. Chase adds that local law enforcement shouldn’t have trusted ICE and cooperated with the agency earlier this year and that SCPD won’t work with agents in the future. Santa Clara County accounted for 21 of the detainees in last week’s raids, with arrests made in Mountain View, San Jose and Morgan Hill. All but a few had prior criminal convictions and four had been previously deported, Schwab says. The agency

declined to identify the Northern California detainees by name. According to ICE, the agency’s operation relied on help from its National Criminal Analysis and Targeting Center and its Pacific Enforcement Response Center, which was founded in 2015 to find undocumented immigrants who end up in local jails. However, the ICE data centers rely on a fingerprint database that the American Civil Liberties Union calls antiquated and erroneous 30 percent of the time. Some of the people arrested during the operation will face prosecution in federal court for illegal entry and reentry, according to ICE. Others will be processed administratively for deportation, but will still be held on bail. No recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program were targeted, Schwab says.

He and Jim Urgo created the Freedom Within Prison Project nearly 10 years ago to spark personal growth for incarcerated men through trainings and workshops. “There are a lot of boys walking around in men’s bodies, they never got a rite of passage. They don’t know how to be a man, they are boys and they are 50,” says Saber, who leads prisoners through what he calls “rites of passage retreats.” To be clear, these “boys walking around in men’s bodies”

may not fit what the average person thinks of when they picture somebody who’s young at heart. Many of them have been convicted of violent crimes and are serving lifelong sentences. “We developed a curriculum that starts with communication skills, emotional literacy, meditations, a lot of edgy experiential processes,” Saber says. “That work has been profound, especially for men that are in for life without parole.” Saber leads the program with four other men, focusing on restorative justice and accountability for those faced with gang violence and oppression, and he says it’s changed the lives of many incarcerated men, improving communication skills, selfawareness and forgiveness. The Freedom Within Prison Project, which is hosting a fundraiser at the Museum of Art and History (MAH) on Saturday, Oct. 7, began in Folsom

State Prison and branched out to Soledad Correctional Facility and San Quentin Prison. In 2013, the project came to Santa Cruz Main Jail, where it began holding weekly workshops for both men and women. The nonprofit currently focuses on the level-four maximum security sector of Salinas Valley Prison, holding a year-long curriculum of two groups of 30 men, while also hosting programs in both the county jail and Rountree Medium Facility in Watsonville. Leveraging its Oct. 7 event at the MAH, the Freedom Within Prison Project hopes to keep expanding its initiatives, an effort that includes Saber’s goal of bringing on women to work in women’s prisons. Ex-inmates who have gotten out and taken part in the project will speak, as will Mayor Cynthia Chase, who’s also the inmate programs manager for the county sheriff’s office.

Saber and the volunteers strongly believe that everyone deserves a chance at redemption and freedom from violence and oppression, even those who murder and rape. But because of the project’s small size and delicate subject matter, it doesn’t have much funding to operate with, he says, adding that he spent thousands of his own dollars on the organization last year. “We don’t have a grant writer or anything,” he says. The Freedom Within Prison Project, Saber says, is always looking for new members who want to learn how to work with the incarcerated. “Just like people work with the elderly, the handicapped or the homeless,” he says, “we work with the faction of society that is oppressed and shut off from everything.” The Freedom Within Project Fundraiser is at the MAH on Oct. 7 at 5 p.m. For more information visit freedomwithinproject.org.

EXERCISE CAUTION. When driving, be vigilant for people on bikes. And check that attitude factor.

So when passing, allow three feet of space between your vehicle and the cyclist. And always use your turn signals and check for cyclists both ahead and behind before turning. Collisions often occur when drivers turn right without checking for cyclists. So before right turns, watch for cyclists, then cautiously enter the bike lane, proceeding as close to the curb as possible. When turning left, beware of oncoming bicyclists; you may not have enough time to complete that turn. And it’s critical to check for cyclists before you open your car door; many have been fatally hit in this way. Be mindful and considerate of people on bikes. It’s the Street Smarts thing to do.

It’s easy when stressed to think of bicyclists as “in the way,” yet people on bikes are just as entitled to the roadway as drivers. Remember that the safety of all bicyclists and motorists rides on mutual respect.

CREEK PEAK Laurel Creek runs through David Callahan’s backyard, just upstream from a road work site, where he worries about asphalt contaminants getting into a creek

as it flows to Neary Lagoon. A city inspector says construction workers aren’t breaking any ordinances. PHOTO: KEANA PARKER

GRATE POINT <11

Since his initial calls on Sept. 13, five county and city officials have made visits to the site, leading to a few attempts at corrections, such as sweeping up some but not all of the asphalt, he says. Crews recently put bright orange plastic filters over the gutters, eight weeks into the project, and two weeks after Callahan started making phone calls. The city of Santa Cruz has a strict stormwater program that prohibits residents and businesses from discharging any pollutants including asphalt down the storm drains. Violations may be subject to up to $25,000 in fines. Dave Martin, one of three environmental compliance inspectors at the city, paid the site a visit after Callahan reached out to him. “He phoned everyone,” Martin says of Callahan. Martin couldn’t find any evidence of a violation. He says that, yes, any amount of asphalt at all entering storm drains would be too much, but adds that it’s

reasonable for a working construction site to move asphalt around during the active construction phase if they clean it up when the project is completed or before it rains. Although rain totals have not been particularly high, it did rain a few times since construction began, for a total of a sixth of an inch over that time, according to the city’s water department. That’s a far cry from a winter storm, but more than enough to wet the ground a few times. Callahan says he also saw water from people washing their cars flow down the gutter into the grate, carrying the asphalt with it, in the weeks before crews installed the drain filters, which Callahan worries are too flimsy to keep out soot anyway. When reached for follow-up, Martin says there are catch basins under each grate and that if any of them were to fill up with asphalt particles, city staff would force PG&E to clean them out. In a statement, PG&E spokesperson Mayra Tostado says they responded to a formal complaint and found no violations. “Crews will continue to work safely to

complete the project and protect the environment,” she writes. According to a 1997 report from the National Parks Service, the main hazards from asphalt spills are its carcinogens and chemical compounds that can move through the ecosystem as the asphalt breaks down. “Asphalt,” it reads, “should be kept out of rivers, streams, and other natural waters to the extent possible.” Some officials responding to Callahan’s calls claimed that what Callahan believed to be asphalt particles were probably only dirt. Skeptical of those suggestions, Callahan conducted an organic chemistry experiment in his garage, testing the solubility of the material with paint thinner and alcohol, proving that it was in fact, asphalt. Laurel Creek, according to a 2008 analysis from the city, is, sure enough, an important riparian corridor, especially because it feeds Neary Lagoon, a critical wetland. “Although constrained by residential land uses, this reach is an important area for terrestrial and aquatic species due to its close proximity to the

lagoon,” the report reads. “This reach offers some opportunity to enhance wildlife use and provide continuity to habitats within the lagoon.” Callahan says he’s learned that environmental precautions should be part of any job site like the one on Laurel and California streets. “I’ve worked in construction sites where they have to wash the tires of the trucks off when they come off the construction site onto the road because they don’t want whatever is in the construction site to contaminate the drains, which can be outflows to the creeks, rivers, or the bay,” Callahan says. The first priority on a construction site, according to Callahan, is safety, followed only by environmental compliance. In a follow-up email, Martin acknowledges that the project has been “very inconvenient” and knows that many people haven’t been happy about the construction. “However,” he writes, “PG&E is performing critical and necessary work, replacing a gas line to prevent real catastrophic loss of human life and property.”

RAIDING ROOM <12 says he’s “extremely concerned” that ICE cast too wide a net with its arrests. He also assures that San Jose police played no part in the raids. “This longstanding policy keeps us safer by focusing our limited police resources on preventing and responding to serious crimes, and ensuring that no resident will hesitate from calling 9-1-1 or otherwise assisting the police due to fear of deportation,” he says. Rosa De Leon, an organizer for the nonprofit Sacred Heart Community Service, says ICE pushes a message about the criminality of immigrants to justify its actions and to sow fear and mistrust in the community. But studies show that immigrants— undocumented or otherwise—are far less likely to commit crimes than native-born citizens, she adds. Studies have also shown that sanctuary jurisdictions tend to be safer and enjoy stronger economies than nonsanctuary counterparts. She points out that ICE routinely violates people’s constitutional rights, uses deceptive tactics such as posing as local cops, and disseminates propaganda to turn public sentiment against immigrants. She says it’s important to keep in mind that ICE and related enforcement agencies tear families apart, separate parents from children and remove people from their communities. In light of the recent raids, local activists and immigrant advocates are raising awareness about a hotline for people to report suspected ICE presence. De Leon says the South Bay hotline was activated nine times this past Sunday through Wednesday. Yazdan Panah, an attorney coordinator for the Northern California Rapid Response Network, says such hotlines could prevent deportations. “It is critical for community members to report ICE activity as soon as it takes place in order for local networks and attorneys to respond effectively,” Panah says. “Time is of the essence in these cases and early reporting can potentially mean the difference between deportation and due process.”

rancis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now is widely considered to be one of the best films of all time. An epic adaptation of Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness disguised as a sprawling, surreal Vietnam War movie, its filming went millions of dollars over budget and six weeks behind schedule—driving its director to the brink of bankruptcy and landing its star Martin Sheen in the hospital after a heart attack— before it came out in 1979.

Subsequently, the director’s wife, Eleanor Coppola, released the behind-the-scenes documentary Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse. Produced at a microscopic fraction of Apocalypse Now’s budget, it came about simply because she realized she ought to pick up a camera and capture what turned out to be one of the most insane shoots in movie history. Today, there are people who consider Hearts of Darkness to be a more compelling film than

Apocalypse Now. Both made it into Steven Schneider’s film-canon bible, 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. That a guerilla-style, behind-thescenes documentary could equal and even eclipse the blockbuster film it set out to document shows the potential power of making films about films. There are dozens of other outstanding examples, both documentary and narrative: 1994’s Ed Wood and 2013’s Saving Mr. Banks fictionalized the quirky stories of

filmmakers beating the odds; the rescued histories of 2002’s Lost in La Mancha and 2013’s Jodorowsky’s Dune showed what happens when filmmakers can’t beat the odds; 2009’s Best Worst Movie revealed how Troll 2 developed a passionate cult following despite being terrible in every way; 2002’s Adaptation was both the film version of a book and a brilliant study of just how hard it is to create a film version of a book; and 1982’s Burden of Dreams told the story of how Werner Herzog’s Fitzcarraldo got made, with the end result managing—like Hearts of Darkness—to be arguably as fascinating and original as the movie it celebrates. What all of these very different films have in common is that, when broken down to their most elemental level, they’re all asking the same question: why are films worth making? This year’s Santa Cruz Film Festival, which returns to the Tannery Arts Center for a second year Oct. 11-15, is spotlighting two

movies that go about answering that question in very different ways. One is the opening night film on Wednesday, Oct. 11, the Cannesaward-winning documentary from India The Cinema Travellers, about the world’s last traveling movie shows that bring cinema to remote villages. The other is a film that flips the approach of in-the-moment makingof movies like Hearts of Darkness and Burden of Dreams, and chases the legacy of a culture-shifting blockbuster 25 years after its release. “I don’t remember ever feeling this awake.” – SUSAN SARANDON, ‘THELMA AND LOUISE’

ONLY THE STONES REMAIN ‘Song of Granite’ finds an innovative way to tell the

story of Irish folk singer Joe Heane.

<20 and written by Callie Khouri, a complete badass who wrote the script in longhand while working a production assistant job, won an Oscar for it, and reportedly responded to critics of the film’s feminist messages by telling them to “kiss my ass.” Townsend was deeply affected by the film. “It blew me away,” she told me in a phone interview last week. “The very next morning after I saw Thelma and Louise, I woke up and decided to change my name.” Up until then, Townsend had been holding on to her married name, Pierce, despite the fact that she had been divorced for many years. Inspired by the film, “I just picked a name out of the air,” she says. She also started to wonder if other people were being inspired by Thelma and Louise in such a profound way.

So she planned a research project, though she had absolutely no background in doing so. “I wanted to find out ‘Are other people having this kind of reaction?’” remembers Townsend. “So I made up the name of a company and I put out a press release.” She sent the release to a number of newspapers and film-themed magazines. It explained that she was seeking respondents for a research project about Thelma and Louise, and that interested readers could write her to receive a questionnaire, which contained five simple questions about their reactions to it, like “Who did you identify with in the film?” Some of the publications she sent the press release to did run something about her project, and printed her address.

“I got all these postcards saying, ‘Please send me a questionnaire,’” she says. “Some people just answered the questions, but some people sent me two, three, five page letters.’” All of this took a while, however, in the pre-internet era, and by the time she had received all of these submissions, Thelma and Louise’s moment in the spotlight had come and gone. She boxed up the responses, with the intent of writing an article about the whole thing one day. But years later, when she finally took the submissions out of their boxes, she felt like only a film could really convey the feelings so many had expressed. “I realized, ‘I have to find these people,’” she says. Of course, that was easier said than done, but when she tracked down 20 of the people who had responded back then, and

had interesting reflections on how the movie had affected them, she knew she had enough material to make a film that could coincide with Thelma and Louise’s 25th anniversary in 2016. She didn’t realize that she would end up being a central voice in her own movie, as well. “I had no intention of being in the movie,” she says. “But then I realized it’s my story, it grew out of something I did, I would have to explain where the original letters had come from.” Catching Sight of Thelma and Louise takes a unique approach to filmmaking about filmmaking, with the subjects in the film reflecting 25 years later on their reactions to the film when it came out. It also features a couple of the male actors from the film talking about the misguided masculinity of the roles they played. Townsend, who will be at the festival screening to talk about her documentary, hopes it answers that question of “why are films worth making?” in a way that captures a cultural moment. “I think [the audience] will discover why there was such a phenomenal reaction to Thelma and Louise when it came out,” she says. “Why it created such a stir.” One of the purposes of film festivals in general and the SCFF in particular is to take a closer look at our love of cinema in this way, says the festival’s director Catherine Segurson. These questions about the nature of movies and why we watch them are questions she is always asking herself when she’s considering films for the festival. “So maybe I’m a little more biased toward those types of films that are exploring that,” she admits. “But I think other people will find it fascinating also, because sometimes we don’t even realize why we’re watching movies or attracted to watching movies. I like the films that are kind of meta in a way, exploring the whole purpose behind creating films—it’s the art, but it’s also what it does to the people watching films. That’s what the Catching Sight film explores, and that’s what Cinema Travellers explores.”

hat’s interesting, says festival programmer Logan Walker, is that the SCFF does an open call for films, but themes invariably do pop up. “We did notice that we were seeing some really great films that were self-reflective, that were about filmmaking, and I think more broadly were about the arts,” says Walker. “On Thursday especially, we have a lot of those films lined up that are about artists, their struggles and their vulnerabilities, and the creation of works.” A lecturer in San Jose State University’s Film and Theatre Department, Walker says these themes are of special interest to him, too. “If nothing else, I’m a film lover, and then the next stage is kind of reflecting on that. Once you see the story, you want to know what and who is behind that story,” he says. “And being at the Tannery, we’re surrounded by art studios and artists. So it kind of feels natural to have films that are about the creation of art.” Also among those films this year are:

interest is War of the Limelight, produced by young people in Monterey County’s after-school film program. The film follows high schools comprised of Latino students and white students as they compete in a filmmaking competition—bringing questions around race and power into the discussion of why and how films get made. “It talks about issues that are very relevant right now,” says Consuelo Alba, the festival’s director and cofounder. Another film in the WFF that examines the nature of art is Mele Murals, about the power of modern graffiti art. And Chavela examines the life of the mysterious and sometime controversial Mexican singer Chavela Vargas. “A lot of people might not know her, but she’s an iconic Mexican singer,” says Alba. “She broke all the rules and was a true artist in the deepest sense of the word. She was as incredibly gifted as Billie Holiday, and her story is incredible.

n the context of the two film festivals coming up this month, the question of why we make films invites yet another layer of examination: why do we make film festivals? Since taking over SCFF last year, Segurson, who also edits the literary journal Catamaran, has learned a lot about the answer to that question. “It really opened my eyes doing the Q&As with directors at the films,” she says. “I started to learn how hard they work, and how difficult it is to get discovered. Because you watch this beautiful movie and they get up and say ‘yeah, we’ve been working on this 10 years.’ And it’s these film festivals that are on the front line—just like the

literary magazines, where that’s the first channel they ever get to show their work to the public. It’s a validation of their work, and it brings attention to their work, and it’s really important.” For Alba, it is also about the festival’s role in the community. “It’s about creating that space where people can see themselves reflected in the stories they’re seeing on the big screen,” she says. “That creates an energy that is very hard to describe.” And who knows, one of these movies at the SCFF or WFF could have a movie made about it someday. “There are many stories of films being discovered in these independent film festivals. Moonlight won Best Picture, and it was an independent film screening at film festivals,” says Segurson. “You never know what you’re going to discover. So it’s important for these festivals to exist and keep going and be providing this.”

and gold pieces. There was the renowned Kitty Wallis sitting at an enormous easel drawing her oversized, brilliantly-hued floral pieces. Watching the hands of a watercolorist like Marie Gabrielle is as mesmerizing as a shamanic ritual. From nothing, suddenly something beautiful appears. And that has been the point of artmaking since the mythic cave folk drew ochre and charcoal bison. But in those early Open Studio years, those of us curious about the artistic process had to pay to play. Access to those artists and the locations of their studios required a purchased guidebook. But no more. Now we can all go visit—take the tour of studios—simply by getting off our couches and hitting the Open Studios trail. Here’s how it works: Pick up the Open Studios Art Tour 2017 guide or get the 2017 Open Studios App, free on iTunes, and scope out the participating artists. For three weekends in October, studios will be open to the public from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.: Oct 7-8 North County; Oct 12-15 South County; and Oct 21-22 countywide. Not much is as inspiring as seeing an artist’s studio, asking them about their process (artists love to talk about their work), seeing how they do what they do, and yes, having a chance to purchase something you like. It’s always tempting to visit the studios of people you know, who make work you already admire. Do it! But Open Studios is also an invitation to check out the work of someone you don’t know, and to expand your own understanding of a new craft. Open Studios features the work of newcomers and of

veteran exhibitors alike. Expect hands-on excitement from Peter Vizzusi, a perennial Open Studios favorite, as he demonstrates classic glass-blowing techniques in his labyrinthine studio. Painter/conceptual artist Hildy Bernstein has been on the circuit for at least 15 years, and admits that each tour motivates her to get new work ready for exhibit (expect some wild surprises from her this season!). Many veterans of the annual event, like printmaker Bridget Henry, painter James Aschbacher, and jewelry maker Ann Wasserman, say they find that the tour can yield robust sales as well as vibrant social interaction. And if you do it right, you can roam the entire length of the county collecting perfect bits of one-of-akind eye candy. Printmaker Kit Eastman’s studio in Watsonville can lead you to the La Selva Beach painting shops of Charles Prentiss and Marie Massey. A two-for-one experience awaits at the huge Soquel studio of glass artist Heather Matthews and her photographer husband Tim Matthews. The handmade tiles of Steve Baranowski and ceramic fancies of Beth Sherman reward tour visitors to Davenport. The photography by local legend r.r. jones, one-of-a-kind wearable fiber creations of Mary Hammond, and haunting wildlife etchings by Stephanie Martin can be seen in the heart of Santa Cruz. But you’ll find your favorites among the 302 artists showing their work. Open Studios is an interactive party involving you, the artists, and their work. Literally, something for everyone.

THEATER

LAST NIGHT ON EARTH Avondina Wills as Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., and Sarah Cruse as a motel maid, in ‘The Mountaintop,’ by Katori Hall. PHOTO: JANA MARCUS

Higher Ground Intriguing look at King’s last hours in ‘Mountaintop’ BY LISA JENSEN Hall receiving its local premiere in an intriguing new Santa Cruz Actors’ Theatre production at Center Stage. A Columbia grad who received her MFA from Harvard, then graduated from the playwriting program at Juilliard, Hall has the audacity to imagine King’s final hours as a dialogue between the road-weary civil rights leader and a pretty young motel maid on her first day on the job. Hall surprises the audience with a portrait of King that dares to be both laudatory and iconoclastic, viewing him as more human than saint, while celebrating his profound effect on the fight for freedom and justice for which he finally gave his life.

The play takes its title from the words of King’s last speech, delivered the day before he died. Beset by death threats, in words now both famous and eerily prophetic, King said, in part, “I’ve been to the mountaintop. And I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But . . . we as a people will get to the Promised Land.” Taking her cue from these words, Hall builds her play slowly but steadily to its satisfying conclusion. The SCAT production, well-directed by local stage veteran Erik Gandolfi, begins with the civil rights leader returning to his motel room after delivering this speech to the striking sanitation workers he’s come to

e all know how the story ends. Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., crusader of the Civil Rights Movement, tireless advocate for social justice and racial equality through peaceful protest, inspiration to millions, was shot to death outside his motel room in Memphis, Tennessee, on April 4, 1968. Those are the facts. But what may or may not have occurred on the night of April 3, Dr. King’s last night on earth, is a matter of pure conjecture. That’s the challenge taken up in The Mountaintop, the award-winning 2009 drama from Memphis-born playwright Katori

town to support. King (played with energetic presence by Avondina Wills), eager to get out of his shoes and get to work on the next speech he’s writing, has sent his roommate, Ralph Abernathy, out to the corner store to buy a pack of the Pall Malls he’s trying to quit smoking. When he calls room service for a cup of coffee, it’s delivered by a starstruck young maid named Camae (Sarah Cruse). As luck would have it, she has a couple of Pall Malls in her pocket; he persuades her to have a smoke with him, and they bring out the flirt in each other—even though she has to keep apologizing for swearing in front of a preacher whenever her salty street vocabulary slips out. But he finds her charming; when he asks why she became a maid, she says, “I’m better at cleaning up other folks’ messes than my own.” The stage seems to be set for debate along gender, class, and political lines. And for awhile, that’s how it goes, especially when they discuss the violence of the Black Panthers vs. King’s allegiance to peaceful protest. But there’s a seismic shift when Camae’s true nature and her purpose are suddenly revealed. It’s too good a plot twist to give away here, but it gives Hall’s play its slyly subversive edge as it ramps up toward its moving conclusion. Wills endows King’s solid, steady persona with very human grace notes of both anxiety and acceptance. Cruse plays Camae sassy at first, making the most of Hall’s often hilarious dialogue—especially when she puts on King’s jacket and shoes to deliver her own speech on “how to deal with the white man.” But she effectively deepens the character to anchor the play. (A slideshow projection toward the end of the play was a little glitchy on opening night, but Cruse’s delivery of Camae’s commentary was vivid enough to carry the moment until the visuals kicked in.) Hall’s play is a refreshing take on a story we think we already know. Kudos to SCAT for bringing it to town.

Jon Stickley wants to buck the Americana trends BY CAT JOHNSON

30

I

n the film Back to the Future, Marty McFly picks up an electric guitar at the school dance and blows the minds of the teenagers who haven’t yet heard rock ’n’ roll. After a blistering version of Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode,” McFly looks up to find the audience just staring at him. “I guess you guys aren’t ready for that yet,” he tells them. “But your kids are gonna love it.” Leaving the audience behind is not the best approach to making music, but flatpick guitarist Jon Stickley and his band have to make a conscious effort not to do it. Defying easy categorization, the Jon Stickley Trio is at once a progressive bluegrass

outfit, an improv-loving jam band, an acoustic jazz group, an avant-garde band and a rootsy Americana trio. Comprised of Stickley, Lyndsay Pruett on violin and Patrick Armitage on drums, the band takes an experimental approach to originals and covers, stretching out in songs to discover hidden pockets of musical potential. “We like to do off-rhythm and weird time signatures and things like that, but we always try to keep the music as accessible as possible,” says Stickley. “We don’t want it to go totally out there. We want it to be something you can move to and connect with. It’s easy to see when the crowd gets lost,” he adds with a

laugh. “‘Yep, we lost ‘em.’” Despite playing fast and loose with genres, the trio has what the New York Times described as a “hardy cohesion among the players.” In today’s streaming-heavy music industry, bands are forced to decide whether they’re bluegrass, country, jazz, rock or blues. This can be disconcerting to a band that’s all of the above and none of the above. In the early years, the trio members felt pressure to define their sound for easy categorization—“progressive bluegrass” was a common descriptor— but now they have enough traction and experience to let their sound and fanbase speak for themselves. “We feel like we could fit in

anywhere, and we want to play for different crowds,” says Stickley. “We can be the one slightly more bluegrass band at an avant-garde music festival, or we can be the weird band at a traditional bluegrass festival. We’re so weird and unique that you can’t really compare the band to that many other things.” Stickley describes the project as a “bit of a rebellion from the acoustic Americana world,” with its “blanket sound you hear with almost every band.” “I’m not trying to hate,” he says, “but we all have a bit of a punk ethos when it comes to not wanting to be mainstream or like everything else.” Stickley’s musical background stretches back to childhood bands with his neighborhood friends. When he was introduced to bluegrass in high school, it changed his life, he explains. After attending his first bluegrass jam, he knew he wanted to dive in. “It was so inclusive and encouraging,” he says. “In the indie rock scene, you didn’t get together and play with other bands. But in this world, these people don’t even know each other and they’re getting together and playing.” The Jon Stickley Trio emerged organically out of the rich Asheville, North Carolina music scene. Stickley was playing upright bass in a bluegrass band, but after two years of that, the guitarist kicked him out, telling him, “There’s a million bass players out there. No one plays guitar like you. You’ve got to go do it.” The trio is known for respectfully deconstructing and reconstructing traditional bluegrass and fiddle tunes, pushing against the strict parameters of bluegrass, while also honoring what makes those songs great. “If you’re going to mess around with a bluegrass song, you’d better be doing it right,” Stickley says. “You need to be able to do the traditional version really well before you mess with it. We make sure we’ve mastered the original. Then we take it to a new level with a new idea, while still really holding that piece in a highly-respected manner.” Jon Stickley will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 10. Don Quixote’s, 6275 Hwy. 9, Felton. $10. 335-2800.

ART LEAGUE

OCTOBER 4-10, 2017 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

When I am painting with fragrant hot beeswax I get lost in the colors and delicious honey scent. I don’t think. I feel.

38

I once took an art class that taught a systematic approach to silk painting. I found that for three straight years after that class I could no longer paint! I had shifted to the left side of my brain. I was so relieved when I finally found my way back to creative spontaneity.

Friday, November 17 – Sunday, December 31, 2017 Reception: December 1, Friday, 6–8pm (First Friday) Honoring the Santa Cruz Art League’s nine decades long tradition of showcasing local artists, Art/Now/Next will feature the work of local, diverse artists under 40. The exhibition will introduce its audience to the next generation of artists who will continue to nurture Santa Cruz County’s creativity and innovation.

www.scal.org or (831) 426-5787 526 Broadway Santa Cruz, CA 95060 (831) 426-5787 Tues.-Sat. 12-5/Sun.12-4 1st Fri. 12-9pm

98 Years of Imagination

“Santa Cruz Art League”

The thrill of the wax colors mixing and changing right before my eyes is what I’m after. I intermingle my love of plants with the colors of my mind.

Marina Camarlinghi BARBARA & COMPANY CATERING

I come from a restaurant family—three generations in Santa Cruz—and have been in catering for most of my life. When I was 5 years old, my dream was to have my own restaurant and bar just like my Dad and Uncle Rudy, who owned Adolph’s Restaurant. I graduated from culinary school in 1996 and worked in numerous restaurants in California and Alaska. In 2006 I realized a large part of my childhood goal and bought Barbara and Company Catering with Victor Cuevas-Sanchez. A regular winner of Good Times Best Of awards, I love creating delicious dishes for memorable breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and appetizer events, whether drop-offs, full service buffets or sit-down dinners—intimate to large. We create menus from BBQ, Mediterranean, and Mexican to Italian and Moroccan style. View our sample menus, or contact us with your ideas. I hope to hear from you.

Debra Duhamel OWNER, SEABREEZE BRIDAL BOUTIQUE

What does competitive tennis, art galleries, high tech, and event planning have in common? Nothing, except, I have experienced passion and success in each of these fields and I have used that diverse set of talents to create a unique bridal boutique in Capitola.

Esther started as a Phone Receptionist when she was a high school student looking for a summer job over 30 years ago. A quick study, Esther spent her time working hard while going to Cabrillo to get her AS in Accounting and learning the business. She remains focused on helping our customers and takes pride in supporting and coaching her team.

I started this business as a result of getting married last year and having an extremely difficult time finding the right gown. In fact, I never found it. Having owned an art gallery in Carmel, I see fashion as wearable art and I delight in finding gowns with amazing textures, details and lines. Besides carrying highly regarded U.S. designers, I take great pride in carrying independent designers from around the globe. Their designs are fresh, innovative and customizable. Brides literally have the option to design their own dress!

Big Creek Lumber is locally owned and employs over 160 people in Santa Cruz County. They are open to the public and sell quality lumber and building materials. Stop by Watsonville and visit Esther and her team for all of your lumber needs!

My goal was to create a boutique that fostered an intimate bridal shopping experience, a place that feels like your own private bridal party. Many times I have heard, “This was the perfect bridal experience!”. For me, that makes it all worth it.

Dr. Ana Mummah, M.D. BEAUTY WITHIN

I have a passion for supporting local artists,” says Dedra Bennett, owner of Zinnia’s Gift Boutique in Scotts Valley. “As a young child, I took trips with my artisan mom to Santa Cruz that always included stopping to visit home-based artists as well as the wonderful craft fairs. These excursions made a lasting imprint on me and I now weave these artists into Zinnia’s. My exposure to worldwide cultures, micro-economics and businesses during my professional career added to my love of artisans; especially artists at large through fair trade selections, micro-loans, woman-run businesses, and those striving to educate their children. My parents empowered me to dream and work toward making my dreams realities,” says Dedra. Zinnia’s is proof of this dynamic upbringing. Zinnia’s features local artisan jewelry, paintings, top quality handbags, gifts, clothing for kids and adults, cooking items, furniture, garden décor, and well-loved vendors such as Spartina, Hobo, Brighton, Annieglass, Vera Bradley and more. Dedra is in the store most days and is happy to help you find the perfect gift for any occasion.

Amber Kramer and Brittnee Bramy CO-OWNERS AND BEST FRIENDS TIPSY GYPSY

Amber had family in Soquel and had always wanted to move down to the Santa Cruz area, so by 2016 they started talking about a possible second location of Tipsy Gypsy. It was a no-brainer when they stumbled upon the perfect space in Capitola. They opened last April, right next to Trader Joe’s! Shoppers say visiting Tipsy Gypsy is a fun experience. They always leave with a new friend after chatting with whoever is working that day, and customers seem to leave with smiles and good vibes while walking out with something new to wear!

Tipsy Gypsy 818.515.7844 | 3555 Clares Street, Capitola Brown Ranch – Near TJ’s

The move to the coast offered her the opportunity to continue helping women look younger faster by opening Beauty Within. The boutique medi-spa started in Santa Cruz in Dec 2015 and then relocated closer to home in Aptos Center a year later. She provides customized botox treatment, dermal fillers, and chemical peels to her clients who are interested in looking their best without resorting to surgery. Preparing for the holiday season should ideally happen at least 3-4 weeks in advance. She has found chemical peels later in the year is a good way to reverse the fun in the sun damage from summer. The doctor is available by appointment to help you for a special occasion or ongoing face rejuvenation treatments. Free consults are available to discuss your needs and answer any questions you may have about what’s available to help you feel more confident.

Amber Kramer and Brittnee Bramy have been best friends since middle school in Incline Village, Nevada. After working at small boutiques in Truckee, the idea for Tipsy Gypsy Boutique came up. They discussed how wonderful it would be to have their very own boutique with affordable, fun and unique fashions. In 2013, they fulfilled their dream and brought their passion for fashion to the first shop, Tipsy Gypsy in Tahoe City, combining Bohemian flair with everyday casual wear at great prices.

Dr. Mummah moved from the SF Bay Area to Aptos to enjoy the coastal views and downsize her medical practice. She is a Stanford trained obstetrician/gynecologist who truly enjoyed also providing facial aesthetics procedures to the community, including customers in the healthcare field, since 2008 at her shop Caramia in San Mateo.

WOMEN IN BUSINESS Candace Ebert CANDACE EBERT & COMPANY

Candace Ebert & Company is a locally owned and operated accounting firm started up by Candace Ebert herself. Candace earned her Bachelors Degree in Accounting in 2009 and has over 15 years of Business Management and Accounting experience. At the age of 15, she started her first business — a tutoring business. The tutoring business was one of 8 businesses that Candace has since helped develop. Some of these businesses were sold, merged, and others flat out failed. It was the failures and mistakes that has given Candace the foresight to survive in the business world today, and make a success of Candace Ebert & Company. Candace wanted to use her knowledge and experience in a way that could help local business owners flourish. While she focuses on the accounting, tax, and payroll tasks, business owners can concentrate on what they feel is most important. Candace is deeply concerned about the success of those whom she cares about and works with, therefore this is her way to contribute to making Santa Cruz a place where family and friends can use their time for the more important things in life. We thank you Candace Ebert for your Think-Local-First mentality and for helping Santa Cruz to be a better place.

I was raised by parents who had the utmost interest in health and healthy living. My father, Jack Macdonald of the Vitamin Center, kept us current with the health movement. Over the years I rebelled and moved on my own path. My own health started to deteriorate in my mid-twenties and I found myself seeking a holistic approach to my aliments. Western medicine provided me with a number of friendly doctors who could not address my symptoms. After the birth of my fourth child my health was at its worst. I ended up in the ER where a very helpful doctor suggested I had autoimmune thyroid disease. This was a turning point for me as I realized I must advocate for myself and my health. I began doing my own research, reading, and interviewing. I became a patient of some phenomenal practitioners and my health began to return. Working at the Vitamin Center I spoke with many customers whose health was failing. One of the things I noticed was a commonality between a person’s perception of eating healthy, unmanaged stress, lack of sleep and failing health. Many people want a quick fix supplement and fail to do the work necessary for good health. So I went to Bauman College to learn more about diet and health with the intent of sharing and teaching people how to make positive changes in their life that would reflect in their health. Jack’s supplement knowledge and my nutrition knowledge make us a great team.

MUSIC CALENDAR

LOVE YOUR

LOCAL BAND NAGGING DOUBTS

What do you get when you mix five seasoned musicians into one cover band? All-star group the Nagging Doubts. Comprising Chas Crowder (Shotgun Suitor), Ted Welty (Locomotive Breath), Spencer Ellison (Tom & Dave Show), Ryan “Darnell” Partington (Sometimes Jones), and Scott Polland (Shotgun Suitor), the Nagging Doubts are a whirlwind of energy and fun. Each member also performs throughout the Bay Area with other musicians, resulting in jam-packed schedules that put most 20-something musicians to shame.

OCTOBER 4-10, 2017 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

“Sometimes playing with other bands is more fun,” Ellison says. “When you play with your own band, it’s a lot of responsibility. But when you play with someone else’s band, it’s cool just to be the drummer.”

That’s how the Nagging Doubts formed last April, in a sense. Crowder and Polland already had a history of playing music together, jamming at gigs together and with Shotgun Suitor, when Crowder had an idea. “One night I told Scott I was bringing in another guy who plays guitar,” he remembers. “And when [Welty] came in, those two began playing the same notes.” “It was one of those weird things where chemistry either happens or it doesn’t,” Polland agrees. “With Ted, it happens.”

RISING APPALACHIA

THURSDAY 10/5 EXPERIMENTAL

ROEDELIUS Hans-Joachim Roedelius had a band called Kluster, then later another called Cluster, then later still one called Qluster. It’s probably no secret that we’re talking about an experimental artist here. The most famous incarnation of the group was Cluster, a ’70s Krautrock band that ranged from massive prog rock anthems to teeny tiny electronic ambient noise orchestrations. And that’s only scratching the surface of Roedelius’ projects. As a solo artist, the sheer amount of music he’s released is approaching critical mass. His fame has also risen steadily since the ’90s, as his pioneering work in modern electronic music has gained attention. AARON CARNES

Since then the band has grown to include Partington on bass and Ellison on drums. Armed with an arsenal of tunes from Johnny Cash to Oasis, the Nagging Doubts know how to get the beer flowing and the feet dancing. MAT WEIR

Quickly now: a band that calls themselves “Rising Appalachia” plays what kind of music? If your

ROOTS

RISING APPALACHIA

answer was “Americana,” you get partial credit. Of course, when you think of Appalachian music, you imagine mountain folk with string ensembles. Sisters Leah and Chloe Smith grew up in the South, hearing this music as kids, but they also heard hip-hop, jazz, soul and world beat. So they decided to start a band that would allow them to explore their own interpretation of the music from their youth. The duo has remained fiercely independent since its formation in 2005.

FRIDAY 10/6 REGGAE

PREZIDENT BROWN Put on your dancing shoes, smoke a fat spliff and get ready to praise Jah with the uplifting sounds of Prezident Brown. For decades, he has been a leader in Jamaican dancehall, first mentoring under U Brown’s wing, and later branching out on his own with songs like anti-drug anthem “Blow Your Nose.” This year, Prezident Brown released his 12th

album, Journeyman Pilgrimage, the follow-up to his 2015 EP The Journeyman. He doesn’t tour the U.S. very often, so this Friday at Moe’s Alley will surely be a treat for all the natty dreads. MAT WEIR INFO: 9 p.m, Moe’s Alley, 1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz. $14/adv, $18/door. 479-1854.

HIP-HOP

MURS Murs is the underground hip-hop equivalent to Jay-Z. He started building his empire as one of the founders of the L.A.-based group Living Legends, then went on to make a string of iconic, collaborative albums as Felt. If that wasn’t enough, he founded the Paid Dues Festival in 2007, which lasted for six years, all while continuing to record and release his own solo projects. Earlier this year, Murs released his 23rd album (outside of his Living Legends recordings), Captain California, once again proving that if you want to be the king, you can’t stop hustling.

POP-ROCK

GAVIN DEGRAW Gavin DeGraw is liberal with his influences, whether it’s rock ’n’ roll, soul, pop or roots rock. It doesn’t matter. What he’s all about is huge choruses, heart-on-the-sleeve lyrics and belting out the words with every ounce of his being. That last one

might have gotten missed by some listeners, since he’s also fond of high production value and large backing bands. This current tour could turn a few heads as he embarks on his first ever “stripped down” tour. He’ll be performing songs with an intimate trio, from his smash hit “I Don’t Want to Be” to tracks from his subsequent half-dozen records. AC

by versatile guitar great Rodney Jones, a longtime Juilliard faculty member whose resume includes recordings with Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Charles, Maceo Parker, James Brown, and James Carter. ANDREW

JUNIOR BROWN

LOW LILY

Junior Brown’s classic country look and sound have established him as a favorite of the roots faithful, but Brown is no wannabe. He makes a point of being current and relevant with his song topics, with one of the best examples being his “Hang Up and Drive” anthem. Brown masterfully brings that classic sound and songwriting approach into modern times, and advises other artists to do the same. As he told GT in 2015, “Don’t sing about the boogie-woogie bugle boy of company B. That’s World War II. Stick with your own era.” On Monday, Brown makes his Moe’s Alley debut. CJ

JAZZ

CHRISTIAN McBRIDE’S TIP CITY More than a virtuosic bassist, Christian McBride is one of jazz’s great public figures, an avuncular intellectual who’s embraced leadership roles as programmer (including the Newport Jazz Festival), broadcaster, and tireless bandleader.

Longtime collaborators Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill are Celtic music royalty. The duo’s one-two punch of Irish fiddle virtuoso Hayes and American guitarist Cahill have spent two decades fine-tuning their sound, while working with an impressive list of artists ranging from jazz guitarist Bill Frisell, jazz vocalist Cassandra Wilson and Sting. With a tendency to strip traditional jigs and reels down to their essence to make room for new interpretations of them, Hayes and Cahill are musical visionaries. CJ

In 2005, Damian Marley released his debut album, Welcome to Jamrock, and immediately became a reggae sensation. The youngest child of the legendary Bob Marley, Damian continues—and furthers—his father’s legacy with songs of justice, rebellion and humanity. His latest record, this year’s Stony Hill, is a return to the spirituality of reggae music, and a reference to the uptown Kingston, Jamaica neighborhood he was raised in. “Coming from uptown doesn’t mean you can’t care about people who don’t live where you live,” Marley has said. “Jamaica is so small that nowhere is far.” CAT JOHNSON

Look back at King-Riggs ‘Battle of the Sexes’ scores BY LISA JENSEN

A

s grudge matches go, the stakes could not have been higher. At 29, Billie Jean King was the topranked woman tennis player in the world, making waves on the pro circuit by demanding promoters offer women players the same prize money as male players. Bobby Riggs was a 55-year-old former tennis champ, gambling addict, and shameless selfpromoting media hustler. When he challenged her to a duel on the tennis court in 1973, the whole world was watching. It was billed as the “Battle of the

Sexes,” a symbolic milestone in the then-burgeoning women’s movement. And now, their match-up comes to the big screen in Battle of the Sexes, a thoughtful and entertaining movie about gender, identity, politics, and celebrity at a pivotal cultural moment in American history. Written by Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire), it was directed by Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton—whose first film, Little Miss Sunshine, demonstrated their skill at developing sympathetic characters and tuning into the subtle absurdities of life. In 1973, women were burning their bras, and the word “feminism” was

entering the lexicon—although uppity women who were advocating for radical things like equal rights and equal pay were more often referred to by the derogatory epithet “women’s libbers.” Billie Jean (a terrific Emma Stone) drops out of a United States Lawn Tennis Association tour when smug promoter and ex-champ Jack Kramer (Bill Pullman) refuses to pay the women players as much as their male counterparts. She rejects Bobby’s first offer. Longmarried to her college sweetheart, she’s too busy coping with her sudden, intense attraction to Marilyn Barnett (Andrea Riseborough), here portrayed

as a hairdresser who comes on tour with the female pros. (Introduced in a montage of slyly erotic close-ups and sidelong glances in the mirror as Marilyn cuts her hair.) But when Bobby defeats Billie Jean’s rival, Margaret Court (Jessica McNamee) in an exhibition match, and talks a lot of trash about the male being “the superior animal,” Billie Jean instructs her manager-husband, “Call the bozo. Tell him it’s on.” Indeed it is. Bobby thrives on the media frenzy he creates, parading across TV screens with a squad of nubile cheerleaders, and declaring himself the defender of “male chauvinist pig” values. Carell plays him with gusto, in all his gross excess, and yet there’s unexpected charm in his brash exuberance, vowing to “put the show back in chauvinism!” or exhorting his fellow Gambler Anonymous inmates that they wouldn’t have a gambling “problem” if they learned how to win. But despite the hi-jinks, the subject of gender inequality remains serious throughout. (Look at the paternalistic way Howard Cosell— his image from the actual broadcast, inserted via CGI—clutches tennis pro and co-commentator Rosie Casals (Natalie Morales) in a kind of hammerlock while calling the match for a worldwide TV audience. He wouldn’t try that trick if his “color man” were, say, John McEnroe.) A vintage soundtrack keeps the action bubbling along, as the filmmakers remind us (in dozens of little onscreen asides) of the culture of the day, when women were chided for wearing shorts instead of fluffy little tennis dresses, and dismissed as biologically unable to handle the pressure of professional sports. But while it all seems sort of quaint now, wage disparity and piggy paternalism are still very much alive. Trailblazers like Billie Jean King deserve our thanks, and the tribute she receives in this movie. But maybe we haven’t yet come such a long way, baby, after all. BATTLE OF THE SEXES ***1/2 (out of four) With Emma Stone, Steve Carell, Andrea Riseborough, and Sarah Silverman. Written by Simon Beaufoy. Directed by Valerie Faris & Jonathan Dayton. A Fox Searchlight release. Rated PG-13. 121 minutes.

FILM NEW THIS WEEK

OCTOBER 4-10, 2017 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

BLADE RUNNER 2049 Long before science-fiction visionary Philip K. Dick became the author whose books everyone in Hollywood wanted to ruin with bad adaptation, director Ridley Scott set out to make one good one. The original Blade Runner cut away the weirdest material in Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, but got at the author’s obsession with the question of what it means to be human better than any film since. Before he died, Dick visited the set of Scott’s film and said it was as close to his own vision of the future as a film could be. In the time since its release in 1982, Blade Runner has gone from an underappreciated gem to possibly the most revered science fiction film ever (2001 probably still wins out, but it’s close.) So yeah, this sequel starring Ryan Gosling as a young Blade Runner (which is to say, basically, android killer) who sets out to find the original’s central Rick Deckard character (once again played by Harrison Ford) has a lot to live up to. At the very least, maybe we’ll find out if former replicant hunter Deckard was in fact a replicant himself (ah, that crazy director’s cut unicorn, how it taunts me). Co-starring Jared Leto, Robin Wright and Dave Bautista. Directed by Denis Villaneuve. (R) 163 minutes. (SP)

60

THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US Idris Elba and Kate Winslet star in this combination romance and plane-crash movie, and yes, I am as surprised to be writing the phrase “combination romance and plane-crash movie” as you are to be reading it. A crashed plane and a mountain co-star. Hany Abu-Assad directs. (PG-13) 103 minutes. (SP) SUSPIRIA This week’s midnight movie at the Del Mar is a 4K digital restoration of one of the most imaginative and visually stunning horror films of all time. Dario Argento’s 1977 masterpiece tells the story of a dance academy harboring an evil secret, and became the first and best installment of his “Three Mothers”

trilogy. Jessica Harper, Alida Valli and Joan Bennett star. Argento directs. (Not Rated) 92 minutes. TAKE EVERY WAVE: THE LIFE OF LAIRD HAMILTON If you don’t know who Laird Hamilton is … what am I talking about, this is Santa Cruz—of course you know who Laird Hamilton is. This new documentary examines how he changed big-wave surfing with his fearlessness and defiance of convention. Directed by Rory Kennedy. (Not Rated) 118 minutes. (SP) VICTORIA AND ABDUL I have this feeling that any time a director needs somebody to play Queen Victoria, he or she presses a special emergency button that connects directly to Judi Dench’s house, where an alarm sounds and red lights flash. Judi then jumps in the Denchmobile, and guns it for whatever set needs her. I bet she sped over extra fast to be in this comedyish-drama based on the true story of the queen’s unusual friendship with an Indian clerk, ’cause she literally gets to say “I am queen of England,” and even yell “Treason!” How can she be so good at this? Somebody needs to make her queen of something. Ali Fazal and Eddie Izzard co-star. Steven Frears directs. (PG-13) 112 minutes. (SP) SPECIAL SCREENINGS “May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers.” CONTINUING EVENT: LET’S TALK ABOUT THE MOVIES Film buffs are invited Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. to downtown Santa Cruz, where each week the group discusses a different current release. For location and discussion topic, go to https:// groups.google.com/group/LTATM.

NOW PLAYING AMERICAN MADE Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman last teamed up for Edge of Tomorrow, a movie that was incredibly enjoyable, mostly because you got to see Cruise die over and over. Somehow I doubt that’s going to be the

case in their latest collaboration, American Made, which is based on the true story of Barry Seal, a pilot who smuggled drugs for Pablo Escobar, and then worked for the DEA and CIA as an informant. Spoiler alert: if the movie is true to the real story, you will get to see Cruise die at least once. Liman directs. Sarah Wright and Domhnall Gleeson co-star. (R) 117 minutes. BATTLE OF THE SEXES Reviewed this issue. Directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris. Starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell. (PG13) 121 minutes. BRAD’S STATUS Ben Stiller plays a middle-aged guy who’s somewhat angsty and dissatisfied, despite the fact that he has a successful career and comfortable life. In other words, Ben Stiller plays Ben Stiller? No, this guy’s name is Brad! Anyway, reconnecting with the college buddies he envies (as he shows his musical-prodigy son around Boston, where he went to school) gives him a different perspective on whether things turned out so bad after all. (R) 101 minutes. (SP) DOLORES A long-overdue look at a pioneering activist, this new documentary is an homage to United Farm Workers co-founder Dolores Huerta, who at the ripe age of 87 seems just as vivacious as she was at 25. Though Dolores is celebratory of her life, it doesn’t put her on a pedestal. It’s a story of hope and a look at injustices still happening today, framed by some really fantastic music. Not rated. 95 minutes. (Georgia Johnson) FLATLINERS Seriously, though, why is there a Flatliners remake? The 1990 original was kind of a snoozefest, but at least it had Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon. This remake, which covers the same goofy horror-lite territory of five medical students obsessed with stopping their hearts to create near-death experiences, has Ellen Page, Diego Luna and somebody named Nina Dobrev. I’d rather re-watch the hilarious Flatliners tribute in last year’s Popstar: Never Stop

Never Stopping. Niels Arden Oplev directs. Kiersey Clemons and James Norton co-star. (PG-13) 108 minutes. FRIEND REQUEST Don’t confuse this with Unfriended, the other horror movie about a teenager who gets rejected by her peers and starts killing them in ghost form via social media. Why do we need horror movies about social media anyway? Isn’t Donald Trump’s Twitter account scary enough? Alycia Debnam-Carey and William Moseley star. Simon Verhoeven (grandson of Paul) directs. (R) 92 minutes. (SP) THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD Pop quiz! Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson star in this actioncomedy as the best bodyguard in the world and the world’s most notorious hitman. Will these mortal enemies a) learn to work together to achieve a common goal; b) learn to overcome their differences to achieve a common goal; or c) turn into Nick Fury and Deadpool, and then learn to overcome their differences to achieve a common goal? Patrick Hughes directs. (R) 118 minutes. IT The new adaptation of what is arguably Stephen King’s defining horror masterpiece is finally here. Which is a good thing, because if I see one more headline that says “If You Really Want to Have Nightmares, Watch This New Trailer From It” or “This New Clip From It is Sure to Give You Nightmares,” I’m gonna lose it. No, I don’t really want nightmares, thanks! And none of the clips actually did give me any, so just shut the hell up with the hype and bring on the damn clown already! Andy Muschietti directs. Bill Skarsgard, Jeremy Ray Taylor and Jaeden Lieberher star. (R) 135 minutes. KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE The first Kingsmen film, a breath of spy-movie fresh air from director Matthew Vaughn, was nearly perfect. But let’s face it, adding Jeff Bridges makes anything better; in this sequel, he and Channing Tatum play operatives from the American cousin of the titular British secret-

agent group, who team up with Taron Egerton’s Eggsy (and a notso-dead Colin Firth) to save the world. Julianne Moore, Halle Berry and Mark Strong co-star. Vaughn directs. (R) 141 minutes. (SP) THE LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE Six young ninjas are entrusted with defending the island of Ninjago. Sounds great, except that one of them is the son of the supervillain who is its main threat. Awkward! Also, can we talk about how this is the third Lego movie in a row that is basically about daddy issues? Somebody in the Lego Corporation writer’s room needs to get a freakin’ therapist already. Featuring the voices of Jackie Chan, Dave Franco and Fred Armisen. Charlie Bean, Paul Fisher and Bob Logan direct. (PG) 101 minutes. (SP) LOGAN LUCKY If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “You know what this heist movie needs? NASCAR!,” then this new Steven Soderbergh film is for you. Coming out of a self-imposed “retirement” that lasted four years—which actually is kind of a lifetime for him, since he used to put out like seven movies a year—his latest action-comedy has a fair amount of critical buzz, not to mention Channing Tatum, Adam Driver and Daniel Craig. Soderbergh directs. (PG-13) 119 minutes. MOTHER! After that weird and pret-ty, pret-ty lame Noah’s Ark movie, director Darren Aronofsky bounces back with a return to what he does best: freaking people the hell out. Seriously, have you seen the trailer for this movie? I can’t even tell what it’s about, but it looks crazy AF, and should fit in nicely with the director’s disturbo repertoire. Aronofsky directs. Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem and Ed Harris star. (R) 121 minutes. STRONGER Jake Gyllenhaal stars in the dramatization of the true story of Jeff Bauman, who lost both his legs in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, and his hard-fought recovery. MIranda Richardson and Clancy Brown costar. David Gordon Green directs. (R) 116 minutes. (SP)

Hottest Harvest

Local viticulturists on how their grapes fared in the end-of-summer heat wave BY CHRISTINA WATERS

T

he heat wave a few months ago left all of us moaning for air conditioning. It also left Santa Cruz Mountain winegrowers from Woodside to Watsonville faced with a crazy, uneven vintage—some grapes purring along nicely, others fried into tooearly maturity and burned skins. I checked in with some of our brave viticulturists to find out what was cooking (sorry). Richard Alfaro, whose Corralitos vines lie directly in the heat belt, admitted that while there was “lots of excellent fruit,” he did

lose much “to sunburn, mostly in the vineyards that get lots of sun on warmweather grapes. We like to expose these grapes so they ripen well,” Alfaro says. “Unfortunately, this year they turned to raisins.” But there was some good news, too: “We did have a huge crop of Syrah,” says Alfaro, “so even losing 40 to 50 percent of it, we will still have some.” On the other hand, Alfaro’s Albariño was “a total loss” this year. As was 40 percent of his beloved Lindsay Paige Pinot Noir. Up in Bonny Doon, Ryan

Beauregard didn’t mince words. “If harvest was like this every year, I would not have anything remotely to do with this job. The heat wave was miserable,” he says. Beauregard’s Coast Grade Pinot Noir was ripening right on target. “When the heat wave hit, I knew we needed to act fast,” he says. Thanks to his longtime contacts, Beauregard had a picking crew lined up quickly. “We went for it under that damned sun,” he says. The picked fruit was so hot the winemaker had to spend “a few thousand dollars on dry ice, which we

pumped over in the fermenters to get it to 55 degrees Fahrenheit before we moved it into the cellar,” he says. Beauregard and his entire team worked 14-hour days in 110-degree sun. “My staff did not balk—we had to do what we had to do,” he says. “We all kept running the hose over our heads and worked with wet clothing all day for four days. The heat was bad, but I was mainly concerned about the Pinot Noir. The Chardonnay is tougher when it comes to weather.” Mary Lindsay of Muns Vineyard near the summit of Loma Prieta told us that “crop loads this year were very good, I think for pretty much everyone. 2015 and 2016 were very low yield. This year was shaping up to be another really good year in terms of yield, but ultimately it depends on how the individual vineyards fared getting through that heat wave. It especially impacted the early ripening fruit like Pinot Noir and Chardonnay,” she says. Lindsay admitted to being alarmed when the heat began. “On September first, we picked in 100-degree temperatures. It was closing in on 90 degrees when we started at 4 a.m." With plenty of cold water for the picking crew, and a wet shirt over her head, Lindsay recalls, “We brought in almost seven tons. I’m glad we picked that day, because it was even hotter the next day!” Muns Vineyard came through that heat wave “just fine,” says Lindsay. “We had been irrigating, even with all the 80 inches of rain we got last winter, because we had a lot of new vines. Then, when we knew temps were going to heat up, we irrigated as much as we could. The irrigation helps the vines and the fruit ride through the heat.” With the recent heat came special concern for Pinot Noir grapes—perhaps the specialty of our winegrowing region. You can get an in-depth understanding of this complex Burgundian grape at the upcoming SCMWA Pinot Noir Technical Session, 9 a.m.-noon on Saturday, Oct. 14, at the Scotts Valley Hilton. Geologists, historians, and winemakers plus leading viticulturist Prudy Foxx’s expert review of the climate’s impact on our vineyards. $45. scmwa.com.

ntil I had lunch at La Perla del Pacifico in Watsonville, I had forgotten that seafood could be exciting. It’s not that I think fish and shellfish are boring, but despite living on the edge of the water, it’s been awhile since I’ve had seafood prepared in a way that feels vibrant and stimulating. Usually, I’ll reach out to a local fishmonger like H&H Fish Co. or head over to Naka for sashimi to satisfy a craving. But La Perla del Pacifico has reignited my fire for the flavors of the sea—although that might be the chilis. A casual restaurant on Beach Street, located a block and a half from the beautiful Watsonville Civic Plaza, the dining room is cozy and relaxing. On my first visit, I ordered a house speciality, the comal de mariscos, a showstopper of a dish that arrived sizzling. Chunks of octopus, white fish, scallops, shrimp and mussels were tossed with dried chilis until everything was a deep, glossy burgundy. It was a breathtaking sight that invited me to breathe in deeply the spicy scent of land and sea. This

exciting main dish was served simply with fresh corn tortillas, beans and rice. As a single diner, I was not prepared for the generous portions. I wisely brought a guest on my second visit so I could order more food. I almost didn’t recognize the seafood cocktail when it was delivered to the table—I was expecting something drenched in cocktail sauce, but what arrived was a deep bowl filled with a light broth of fresh tomatoes, cilantro and cucumber. Below the surface were just-cooked scallops, purple octopus and camarones swimming with diced cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion and slices of avocado. Just that, piled high on a tostada, could qualify as one of the best lunches I’ve had in 2017. But if I had stopped there, I wouldn’t have tasted the shrimp and octopus el diablo. That el diablo sauce, dark red and almost meaty, was intensely flavored with adobo and had a savory, smoky heat that rose slowly through my sinuses and made the backs of my eyes burn. In a good way. 458 Main St., Watsonville. 724-0993.

eggy and Jim Alberti love to grow Pinot Noir grapes on their property in the Santa Cruz Mountains—and they strive to produce the finest fruit possible. My husband and I were invited to their bucolic retreat for a tour of the vineyard, and for several tastings of different vintages of their Pinot, all well-made and impressive. I especially loved the 2015 estate-grown-andbottled Pinot. Every aspect, from the growing of the grapes to the finished product, is done completely by the Albertis—and only those who grow grapes and till the land know how difficult it is to get everything right. “It’s got a monster aroma when you first open it,” says Peggy Alberti of their 2015 prime Pinot. “And it’s better for decanting.” Dark, intense and full-bodied, it’s brimming with delicious red fruit and earthy flavors of spice and caramel. This 2015 Pinot Noir (around $30) can be found at Deer Park Wine & Spirits and restaurants such as Michael’s on Main and the Hollins House. Also, Deluxe Foods in Aptos carries Alberti Pinot. albertivineyard.com.

H RISA’S STARS BY RISA D’ANGELES AUTUMN’S DOSHA: ENERGY, RHYTHM

Autumn (known as “midnight” in esoteric sciences; winter solstice is the “dawn”) is a season of transition, between summer’s golden green and winter’s bare darkness. In trees and shrubs, we see a subtle shift of color, from greens to oranges, reds and browns—the browning of the Earth. This is the very thing that shocked Ceres after her daughter, Persephone, was captured and taken to the underworld. The color, hues, shades and position of the light hints at new seasons unfolding, from autumn’s crispness to winter’s shadows. There is a simultaneous feeling of loss and also of hope. We sense the possibilities of light appearing in the darkness. During autumn, we seek simplicity and warmth with a hint of the festive. Autumn soon becomes dry, windy, rainy, erratic, subtle, cool and clear. The element air predominates, the

subtle prana (breath), the essential life principle. Following Ayurvedic principles, we learn that autumn is a Vata (one of the Doshas—basic energies in nature, of which there are three, Vata, Pitta, Katha). Vata is air, the etheric subtle unseen. Vata governs movement and communication; it is light, cold, dry, rough, mobile, subtle, and clear. The focus here is the seasons. Within the four seasons there is a rhythm to be followed. When we follow the seasonal rhythms, our body becomes balanced and harmonized, the tasks of Libra. Libra begins the autumn season each year. Seasonal living, following the circadian rhythms, rhythms of the Sun and Moon, the new and full moons, the light at dawn, noon, dusk and midnight—all of these astrology follows, too. (To be continued next week.)

ARIES Mar21–Apr20

LIBRA Sep23–Oct22

You burn yourself often in the fire of risk taking. Then you feel a drop of rain and the fire is extinguished. You rise up from the flames, creating always a new self within. This is due to Mars, the life-giving energies propelling you in new directions, often unknown. There are snakes like jewels around your neck. They protect you. Think of these as your spiritual talisman and amulets.

Creation occurs according to Law. Libras know intuitively about the laws of life. Use mantras each day to invoke the Spirit of the Day so that on inner and outer levels you are aided and nourished in all ways. You are to clear the thistles (harshness, unforgiveness, anger, hatred) from your life so that equality, balance and beauty can come forth. Otherwise you will remain in the Kurukshetra (Sanskrit for “great and ancient battle”).

TAURUS Apr21–May21

SCORPIO Oct23–Nov21

Often you battle with the serpent of time. Always having the sense there isn’t enough time. Feeling so often pressured by time, it’s good to have a talk with Saturn, god of time. He enters into our lives when we need to learn patience and right timing. Saturn in Sagittarius takes us on an adventure and journey into Time. Saturn invites you to walk with him. Converse with him on time, in time.

In Wisdom teachings, “the body (personality) is called the field of cultivation.” It is also seeking “level ground” (the Soul). Link the inner (Soul) and outer (personality) selves so they become one. See yourself as a Great Ritualistic Bird, the Great Eagle. Stand on two triangles, arms outstretched, forming a cross. Then you work with heaven (north) and earth (south), and side to side (east/west). You become centered on the Tree of Life in the world of men (thinking ones).

GEMINI May 22–June 20 Venus expresses its essence in your life through beauty and harmony. Venus removes hindrances that keep you from knowing the truth. Venus then offers you the understanding concerning all life experiences. The great Vedic seers tell us of vanquishing the dragon of ignorance. We do this by lifting up the lower to the higher, to the realms of Soul light. You then gain the wisdom you seek. Then you help others.

CANCER Jun21–Jul20 It is good to build an enclosure around your garden, construct an indoor altar of stones, icons, water and prayers and construct an outside fire altar. All of these focus the mind and heart. At each new and full moon standing at our altars, reflecting upon the days, weeks and months, we sense the rhythm of essential beingness. Constructing enclosures with altars for ritual creates a new well-lit house to live within.

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec20 In the Masonic Lodges, the Centaur (half animal/half man) represents the dual nature of all of us. Sagittarius is given the gifts of high nobility, generosity and a self-control that leads to freedom. There is often a restlessness with Sag, seeking, at times, high worldly positions. At other times hiding away in the woods as hunter and archer. You fight for the rights of others. Removing the blindfold from Lady Justice.

CAPRICORN Dec21–Jan20 So often you are thoughtful, reserved, serious, prudent and cautious—the born diplomat. You understand authority. You also understand negotiation and peace-keeping. Goodwill propels you to the top of the mountain very quickly. Careful when climbing (and running), with thighs, and later, with knees. After a long arduous climb to the top of the mountain, you become the unicorn. The Light meets you there.

AQUARIUS Jan21–Feb18

It’s important to polish your personality into a gem of light. Then the angularities and irregularities within your personality become a perfect diamond. You are to work on yourself so the Master Builders (Hierarchy) can use you to build the template of Goodness in everyone. When your necessary work has been completed you will be called to the Temple of Beauty and Usefulness.

You are an interesting character. And with Uranus ruling you, quite a character you are! You are also a humanitarian (a giver) while also needing scientific verification of all things. You are intelligent beyond your years (and beyond most others). You are the “man/woman” of the zodiac. You are the “waters of life” in many cases “for thirsty humanity.” You are the friend to everyone. You are the wavy lines of the Aquarius glyph. The lines of electricity!

VIRGO Aug23–Sep22

PISCES Feb19–Mar20

Consecrate the lands around you to the Angel of Rituals. This is an ancient activity that alchemists performed. They tended and tilled the land with sanctifying mantras: invoking the Angel of the Plough and the Angel of the Earth. Invoking the Sun, moon and stars to fertilize the land with magnetic energies. Allow your place (home) to be attuned and aligned with the Spirit. Then pure Goodness expresses itself through you.

Greatly influenced by all environments you find yourself in, it’s most important that they be beautiful, harmonious, filled with color, subtle hues and the sound of flowing waters. Deep within your heart longs for peace on earth. Sometimes you’re dreamy and romantic. Mysteries call to you. Sometimes you’re sad, restless and discontented. You are the two fishes united by a silken cord. You want to break that cord at times. And be free. Pray for this.

PARMESAN-CRUSTED WINE & FOOD PAIRING PORK CHOPS INGREDIENTS

• 2 large eggs • 1 cup dried Italian-style bread crumbs • 3/4 cups freshly grated Parmesan • 4 (1/2 to 3/4-inch thick) center-cut pork loin chops (each about 10 to 12 ounces) • Salt and freshly ground black pepper • 6 tablespoons olive oil • Lemon wedges, for serving DIRECTIONS

Whisk the eggs in a pie plate to blend. Place the bread crumbs in another pie plate. Place the cheese in a third pie plate. Sprinkle the pork chops generously with salt and pepper. Coat the chops completely with the cheese, patting to adhere. Dip the chops into the eggs, then coat completely with the bread crumbs, patting to adhere. Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a very large skillet over medium heat. Add pork chops, in batches if necessary, and cook until golden brown and the center reaches 150 degrees, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer the chops to plates and serve with lemon wedges.

Zack Turner, 14-Year Customer, Santa Cruz

Student: Santa Cruz High School Hobbies: Mountain biking, tennis, skiing, golf, guitar, walking the dog, barbecuing Astrological Sign: Taurus Who or what first got you shopping at Shopper’s? LIZ: “My mother. She used to shop here when I was kid. It was her favorite store. I remember her always chatting with Bud (Beauregard); he always asked how she was doing and it felt like a real family-style grocery store. It still does. I think onsite ownership makes a big difference; now it’s Jim (Beauregard) who makes sure the store runs smoothly.” ZACK: “Shopper’s is the best grocery store in Santa Cruz because of their better food and higher efficiency.” LIZ: “We live on the Westside but make a point of shopping here twice a week. It’s always a fun experience and never boring!”

Never boring? LIZ: “This not a huge store but what they offer is quality and variety in all departments, including a wonderful array of specialty products such as great cheeses, so many fresh salsas, amazing hot sauces, terrific olive oils, and their wines. They have fabulous wine specials and employees to assist you who are knowledgeable and really know their stuff.” ZACK: “The employees seem to have a lot of energy and good personalities. Shopper’s has good food and good prices.” LIZ: “Zach likes to calculate prices per unit! He’s right about the pricing and quality — so many excellent local products, like the produce, pies, breads, ice creams, eggs, and more.”

What do you folks like to cook? LIZ: “Many things, from Mexican to Italian food — Shopper’s has a large variety of pasta — and much more. I’ll find recipes new to me from Eating Well and other sources, and I’ll always find the ingredients I need at Shopper’s.” ZACK: “I barbecue and like the many products from the meat department, and you can get good tips. A butcher suggested I get a bacon iron — it’s shaped like a pig — to cook bacon.” LIZ: “Shopper’s is in tune with the community, and their people are always friendly which makes for a more personal environment.” ZACK: “Everyone is upbeat, especially the butchers.” LIZ: “The checkers too!”
