It all started as my dog and I waited for my boyfriend to make a quick beer run. I was leaning against the car with the passenger door open and my dog beside me. You approached from the liquor store with a wobbly, zigzagged gait to profess your love for me—if I translated your slurred mumbles correctly— and I loudly told you to get away from my car and to stop touching my dog. I couldn’t lock the door because the key was in the ignition and I didn’t want to turn my back because I was worried you’d push me inside. So I stood up straight and repeatedly shouted, “Bye. Bye! BYE!” It took what felt like an eternity, but you eventually stumbled away. I leaned into the cab, grabbed the keys from the ignition and marched toward the store to complain about you, but then my dog vomited, collapsed and shook violently, her eyes rolling into the back of her head. You had the gall to laugh at me when I collapsed in tears beside her. Thankfully, my dog recovered after a trip to the vet. But I’m never going back to that godforsaken corner store.

49ers: We’re Fine! NFL ratings are supposedly down because of player protests—and not excessive brain damage claims, or off-field violence against women, or crass military propaganda— which all started with former Niner COLIN KAEPERNICK taking a knee last season. But attendance appears to be dwindling as well. TV cameras and social media posts from glib reporters have shown a sea of vacant red seats during kickoff and halftime at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. A few holier-than-thou 49ers sportswriters whipped themselves into an unwritten-rule lather They on Oct. 22, when Hall of Did Famer DWIGHT CLARK, What? who’s been diagnosed with ALS, gave a heartfelt SEND TIPS TO speech to a half-empty FLY@ crowd. Apparently, good METRONEWS. players deserve a delayed COM bathroom break and doffed cap while thousands of other NFL bodies should be considered expendable and deservedly forgotten as the fans flush. Fly reached out to 49ers flacks to see just how bad things have gotten, but everything is apparently all sunny in Levi’s Stadium—and not just the sunbaked east side. The team claims that 55,000 dutiful patrons came through the turnstiles last Sunday to watch a slogfest with the Arizona Cardinals, and all those empty chairs are actually due to fans enjoying more than six different club areas. But according to sources, the 49ers’ argument that they simply built a stadium that is too fan friendly is BS. Word is JOHN YORK, the father of 49ers CEO JED YORK, had quite a bit of input on stadium design more than 10 years ago, back when the plan was to build in San Francisco. Various media reports have suggested the 49ers more or less stuck with the same stadium specs and tried to fit a square peg in a round hole in Santa Clara, where the lows can be roughly 20 degrees warmer than Hunters Point. Fly also heard that the stadium had to be turned slightly to the west to fit the property boundaries, resulting in even more sunshine. Niners officials disputed past reports and Fly’s sources, noting that York “was involved” in the design but wasn’t playing Legos with Levi’s. As for the heat, the 49ers said the stadium’s positioning is close enough to due north and they’re waiting to hear back from architectural firm Populous to find ways to keep things cool.

Who Cares? GETTING A GRIP The number of Santa Clara County residents over age 65 who have Alzheimer’s disease will nearly double by 2030, to more than 56,000.

As the nation ages, millions of young people will spend lives caregiving BY PAYJE REDMOND


OME MORNINGS would start as early as midnight for Kimberly Tran. Other days an alarm clock would wake up the 27-year-old Campbell resident, so she could check on her grandmother. Other times it was Grandma Mai herself coming in to sound the alarm. Deep sleep was always in short supply. More recently, with some changes to Grandma Mai’s medication, Tran can occasionally sleep in. But the morning routine still requires her to guide her grandmother to the restroom to

brush her teeth, then to the kitchen for her daily peanut butter toast. After breakfast, Tran administers her grandmother’s daily medications. Then she gets her set up with with a book to read for 10 minutes. “I have to find an activity to keep her busy, otherwise she would be all over the house rearranging things,” Tran says. The last step in the process is getting Grandma Mai dressed and driven over to her daycare at Live Oak Senior Center in Cupertino. Tran’s grandmother, Mai Ngo, emigrated during the Vietnam War, but she is now 88 years old and has moderately severe dementia. “I feel like I have been taking care of her my whole life, but she has been living with us for three years,” says Tran, whose mother helps out but is limited due to her own age. “In the Asian culture, it’s common to keep grandparents at home as long as you

can. It’s not a job, it’s my family. It’s very exhausting. Many mornings I’d wake up to say, ‘I can’t do this.’” Tran is far from alone in Santa Clara County, where nearly 31,000 people over the age of 65 were diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease as of 2015. That number is expected to rise by 82 percent—up to 56,270—by 2030, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. In the next two decades, the number of people living into their late 60s and beyond is expected to increase by the millions. According to a 2014 Census Bureau report, “In 2050, the population aged 65 and over is projected to be 83.7 million, almost double its estimated population of 43.1 million in 2012.” The burden of caring for these aging adults—parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles—will increasingly fall on younger generations, people in their 20s and 30s like Tran. As the population of senior adults continues to grow and uncertainties arise regarding Medicaid and senior health care funding, family conversations about caregiving

that includes people of all ages who meet low-income or disability qualifications. “Having explicit discussions with your parents and finding out their preferences are important,” Woodhead adds. Discussing a parent’s wishes, in the event they are diagnosed with dementia, is not an easy conversation, but the results can prevent future complications and alleviate potential stress. While Alzheimer’s puts a heavy cost on the health care system, the cost of diabetes is not far behind, as it costs an average person $13,700 in annual medical expenses, according to 2013 data provided by the American Diabetes Association. One in 11 people have Type 2 diabetes, according to Santa Clara County health officials, but nearly one in three are prediabetic. In January, the county kicked off its campaign to be a dementia-friendly city, which encourages community members to be informed about the disease and educates them on how to be kind and respectful to people with it. “It’s about being patient and kind and aware in the community,” says Diana Miller, who manages the Seniors’ Agenda Project. “The less scared and more aware people are of the disease, the more people will advocate for the government to put more money into research.” With the cost of senior care facilities and hired caretakers being a financial burden—if not an impossible task for many young people—an increasing number of families are taking on the responsibility themselves. For Tran’s family, the compromise was finding an adult day care for Grandma Mai just part of the time. Tran realized that her previous job working with special needs kids by day, coupled with caring for her grandmother by night, was unsustainable. Since her grandmother started attending Live Oak Adult Day Services on weekdays, Tran’s stress has eased a bit. However, the facility costs the family about $150 a week out of pocket. “I didn’t realize how much it was affecting me until recently—it is emotionally straining,” Tran says. “Right now we don’t know what to do, we are stuck. If I could go back in time, I would definitely have made sure my family was more prepared. I would have gotten her situated in a living situation that wouldn’t put such a strain on the family and be prepared better financially. Definitely a more proactive than reactive approach.”

decisions become more crucial.San Jose State professor Erin Woodhead, who studies geropsychology, says home caregivers tend to be young women, many of whom stop tending to their own goals and needs. “It’s often a female caregiver, and she may work full time and caregive,” Woodhead says. “Sometimes, while serving in the person’s best interest, they sacrifice their own health.” Victor Washington, a 26-year-old Berkeley resident, discovered his mom had early-onset Alzheimer’s when he was an undergraduate senior. He and his girlfriend were also expecting their first child. “At first I assumed her memory decline was due to her aging, but over time she began to show signs of short-term memory loss at a faster rate,” Washington says. Compelled to take care of his single mother, Washington now checks in with his mother almost daily. He does her grocery shopping, manages her finances and secures her Section 8 housing. In a community forum about millennials who provide care for their parents, hosted by U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Pleasanton, Washington shared his story, noting that support groups have helped him juggle his personal life with the emotional and logistical tolls of caregiving, such as handling financial documents and securing his mom’s Supplemental Security Income. “As I go through the process, I’m learning how to have more patience and learning more about my mom and how to approach certain situations,” Washington says. “Anyone who reads the news knows the cost of health care is really a problem,” says Michele Boudreau, communications director of the Northern California Alzheimer's Association. While noting that “Alzheimer’s is the most expensive disease in America,” she adds that more young people should take time to learn about the disease. “The more people are cognizant about the disease,” she continues, “the better families will be able to prepare.” The cost of treating those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s is about $23,497 a year using Medicare, while those using Medicaid spend $8,192, according to the Alzheimer’s Association’s 2017 Fact Sheet. While Medicare is primarily a health and hospital insurance program for seniors age 65 and older, Medicaid supplies nearly 72.5 million Americans

MISSIN When people fall off of the face of the earth, inalienable rights and legal restrictions can make it nearly impossible for friends and family to find them

LAND OF THE LOST Silicon Valley has unique stressors that can push people to drop their jobs, family, friends—everything.


RY AS SHE MIGHT to mine her memory of the day, little stood out about the last meal Anneliese Scadden shared with her brother. Five Thanksgiving weekends ago, Scadden and her six siblings met at their parents’ Morgan Hill ranch home for their traditional potluck.

11 NOVEMBER 8-14, 2017 | | |


Her brother, Karl Busch, a handyman by trade, wore his usual garb: frayed blue jeans, a baseball cap and goatee. He kept quiet, but seemed in good spirits despite a recent breakup. That night, or sometime soon after—it’s unclear when, exactly— Busch took off with nothing but a knapsack and his white Ford Econoline. Few thought much of his departure at first, until a week passed. Then months. Scadden and her husband, Michael, started getting calls from Aladdin Bail Bonds. Busch, who had two prior DUI convictions, got pinched with a third and sentenced to community service. But

he stopped showing up, despite a $30,000 bounty to his name. “That’s when you start to panic,” Scadden says. “We weren’t the only ones trying to find him.” Over the next year, there were still some signs of life from Busch. Someone went back to his cottage two months after he went missing and took his computer and clothing. The following summer, in July 2013, he closed the Bank of America account he shared with his father. “That was the last blip,” Scadden says. “After that, nothing.”

Right to Disappear Faked-death conspirators and fugitives aside, missing people generally fall into three categories: runaways, crime victims and those

with mental disorders. Amber Alerts are typically reserved for child abductions, while police departments typically send out emergency press releases for the elderly. “Voluntarily missing” adults like Karl Busch go largely unnoticed. Every year, police throughout the United States field roughly 650,000 missing person reports, according to the FBI’s National Crime Information Center. While the vast majority are resolved quickly, about 90,000 cases remain open at any given time. Unless it involves a child, or an adult with dementia or there’s reason to suspect a crime, law enforcement does little more than take the report and wait for tips. Far more often, it falls on friends and family to find a missing loved one. “Missing adults aren’t treated with the same urgency,” says Roberto Rivera, a South Bay private investigator who takes his searches

to remote corners of the world if ever the case calls for it. “When a kid disappears, you know something’s wrong. But it’s harder to tell with adults, who might be in danger or a danger to themselves, or they might be fine and don’t want to be found.” Of the roughly 2,000 adults reported missing each year in Santa Clara County, only 10 are deemed to involve “suspicious circumstances,” 70 involve dependent adults and about 220 involve “unknown circumstances,” according to the California Office of the Attorney General, which tracks data on missing persons. The vast majority of missing adults—about 85 percent in this county—are classified as voluntarily missing, which means few, if any, public resources go into finding them. People fall off the grid for manifold reasons. In Silicon Valley, stressors such as the high cost of living, family pressures or abuse and

aspirations of upward mobility often drive people past their breaking point, according to investigators hired to track them down. Robert Ferris, who was hired by Scadden to find her brother, says he’s seeing a growing number of immigrant families coming to him for help in finding their adult children. “Imagine you’re from a country where families push you to do well in school, and then you come to a country where people are given a lot of freedom to be individuals— sometimes to a fault,” Ferris says from behind the desk in his dim North First Street office, where an antique Regulator clock ticks off the seconds across from a “wanted dead or alive” poster of Jesse James. “So what happens is they turn 18, 19 or 20 years old, they get that first taste of freedom, and they check out.” Some of the people who go off the grid become part of the region’s burgeoning homeless population. Others take their own life. Only a

small fraction of them remain missing for as long as Busch. Many more slip in and out of contact with the people in their lives. Despite a family’s best wishes, however, not everyone who goes missing wants to be found. “I understand that it’s inconvenient, but we’re guaranteed some freedoms in this country,” Ferris says, “and one of those freedoms is the freedom to be left alone.” On certain occasions, Ferris says, the person he’s tasked to find refuses the offer to reunite with relatives. “When I find someone, part of what happens is I spend some time to try to convince them to contact their family,” he says. “Sometimes they say, ‘Go to hell, you have no idea what I went through,’ and they want no part of their family anymore.” That’s their prerogative. “I warn the families ahead of time,” Ferris adds, “that they may not like the way things turn out.”

PAINSTAKING WORK Private investigator Roberto Rivera says the process for finding a missing adult is tedious and time-consuming.

‘Me Time’ When Jelena Pajic went incommunicado for more than a month this past summer, the case captivated local media. The 31-year-old ex-NASA contractor and daughter of Croatian immigrants was strikingly beautiful and, by any measure, successful. “She’s lively and clever, and gave a fuck about people,” her friend Brandon Bradford tells me during the fifth week of her disappearance. “That’s why so many people care about her and want her home safe.” Pajic’s disappearance highlighted some of the difficulties faced by police and families when someone leaves of their own volition. With nothing to indicate that she was a victim of any type of crime, the San Jose Police Department’s hands were tied. Pajic divorced her husband in 2016, which

meant she alone had access to her apartment. No one, not even law enforcement, could log into her social media accounts or ask her phone provider for geolocation data. In the year leading up to her disappearance, the young divorcee gradually withdrew from friends and family. An avid hiker, she increased the frequency of her trips to Big Sur and other local trails. On Aug. 14, in a phone call to her father, she told him that she was headed “somewhere pretty.” He says he asked, “With who?” “Just me.” After a week passed with no word, Pajic’s family began to worry but held out hope that she may have extended her trip. A second week passed and her rent came due. That’s when Pajic’s parents filed a missing person report with the San Jose Police Department. Officers walked through her apartment for a welfare


The Reversal More than a month after Pajic went missing, Rivera gets a tip from San Jose police detective Manny Guerrero—the city’s one-man missing person unit. Someone reported seeing police detain her for an involuntary psychiatric hold a few days before her last known contact with family. Armed with a notebook, missing-person leaflets and a general idea of where in the affluent Saratoga hillside the sighting was reported, Rivera canvasses for clues. “Excuse me, ma’am?” he says, approaching a woman who pulls up to her driveway in a gunmetal-gray sedan. “I’m looking for a missing person. Have you seen her?” He holds up an 8-by-11 flyer

of Pajic, who smiles softly in the photo, the sun glinting off her coffee-colored hair. The woman squints at the image. “Does she live here?” she asks. “No, but she was seen right here before she went missing,” Rivera answers. “I haven’t heard from the cops or anything,” the woman tells him, her forehead knit with concern. “Yeah, well the friends hired me to find her,” Rivera says. “Can I leave my card with you?”

‘I understand that it’s inconvenient, but we’re guaranteed some freedoms in this country, and one of those freedoms is the freedom to be left alone.’ He moves on to several more houses to repeat the exchange, or to leave his card and a poster by the front door if no one answers. “It’s a slow, painstaking process,” Rivera says apologetically while trudging up to the next address. Over the course of a few hours, Rivera gleans some promising details. One of the neighbors saw a car that looked like hers—a white 2012 Mercedes-Benz C250. And an employee at the Le Boulanger a few miles away reported seeing a disheveled-looking woman who matched Pajic’s appearance. “She was pretty,” says Yadira Sanchez, an assistant manager at the bakery. “She was young, pretty and did not look homeless.”

B U S I N E S S TA X M O D E R N I Z AT I O N Measure G In 2016, City of San José voters approved the Business Tax Modernization Measure G, and the new rates resulting from the measure are effective July 1, 2017. Under Measure G, all residential landlords of one or two rental units will now pay the San José business tax for the first time as of July 1, 2017. The City Council established a grace period until December 15, 2017, so that these residential landlords can apply for and secure a valid business tax certificate from the City and pay the business tax without incurring penalties and interest. If the payment of the business tax is made after December 15, 2017, interest and penalties will accrue retroactive to July 1, 2017. The approved tax rate is to begin at the first rental unit rather than the third unit.

check, but without probable cause they couldn’t obtain a warrant to search her belongings. Around the third week, a friend of Pajic hired Rivera, an investigator with more than two decades in the field and a calm, candid demeanor. Stacks of folders clutter his tiny office, a single room in an aging business complex in Santa Clara, where certifications, diplomas and plaques adorn the walls and the shelves hold criminal justice textbooks, cameras, camcorders and surveillance devices. Rivera pulls out a file with all the information he gathered about Pajic up to that point. “By the time people come to me, they’ve exhausted all avenues they can think of,” Rivera says, rifling through the folder. “But this case is unique in the sense that she shut off access to pretty much all the personal aspects of her life, even from her close friends and family.” By all accounts, Pajic spent the past year trying to wall herself off. “She would tell us, basically, that these hikes were her way of having ‘me time,’ and getting away from everything,” says Sami Najafi, Pajic’s friend from middle school. “We were somewhat concerned and expressed that to her, but she seemed pretty confident about her decision, and seemed like she could take care of herself. We didn’t think there was any reason to worry.” | | | NOVEMBER 8-14, 2017

The woman reportedly came in with two bags, “like she left her house in a hurry after a fight and just packed up really quickly,” Sanchez says. She asked about the price of coffee, noting that she only had $10 to spare. She fell asleep in one of the chairs, Sanchez says, and asked for a refill a few hours later. “That sounds promising,” Rivera says as we leave the cafe. “She stood out because she hung out for a while, she wasn’t one of the regulars who comes and goes. The fact that she was conserving money—that’s an interesting detail to know.”

‘Honestly speaking, sometimes that’s the hope—that there’s an arrest or that they end up in some institution. At least they’re found.’ But before he can rally volunteers to conduct a grid search of the area for Pajic’s car, something happens that so often does in missing person cases. The parents who desperately implored the public to keep an eye out for their daughter are asking everyone to stop looking and stay silent. Pajic was found, but the reunion was bittersweet. Seven weeks and one day after she slipped away, her father drove up to a Sonoma County courtroom to witness her arraignment on charges of vandalism and public intoxication. “Honestly speaking, sometimes that’s the hope—that there’s an arrest or that they end up in some institution,” Rivera says. “At least they’re found.”

Hope Remains Anneliese Scadden takes some measure of comfort knowing that her brother, who would be 51 years old by now, had the skills to survive on his own. He knew how to build things from scratch. He could repair cars, fix things around the house and had enough of a reputation in the South Bay to enjoy steady work by word-of-mouth referrals. “He’s such a handyman,” Scadden says. “He could live out in the mountains and get along just fine. One possibility we’ve considered is that he’s living on a ranch somewhere as a ranch hand.” But there’s one detail about Busch’s disappearance that’s both agonizing and hopeful. Nobody ever found his van, which would have been flagged if it ever got towed or pulled over. “That could mean he’s out there,” Scadden’s husband, Michael, suggests. “It at least means that he took the vehicle somewhere it wouldn’t be found, where nobody would report it as abandoned.” Of course, Scadden has considered the possibility of her brother’s death. But without knowing for certain, she mourns his loss without being able to fully grieve. Experts call the assiduous trauma of such uncertainty “ambiguous loss,” a painful limbo experienced by families of the missing. “It’s hard to move on,” Scadden says. “I don’t know how I would do that.” For the first few years after Busch left, Scadden would revisit some of his old haunts to interview people who may have encountered him. At the Box Seat, regulars had fond memories of her brother, a quiet but affable presence at the Morgan Hill sports bar. He used to come here to cheer on the Giants and Sharks. The problem with memories of the mundane, though, is that they’re hard to recall in much detail. During routine encounters, people don’t think to note details such as specific dates, times and what someone wore. “That’s what was so frustrating,” Scadden says. “I’d go in there and ask when they last saw him, and people would say, ‘Oh, he was just in here

retraced some of the steps Scadden took during her initial search. “We wanted to track him down before my mom passed away,” Scadden says. In February of last year, Busch’s mom succumbed to her illness. “We never found him, so she died with that sorrow in her heart.” As Thanksgiving approaches, the pain of her brother’s absence feels fresh. “It will be five years,” Scadden says. “I want him to know that we’re still looking, that we still want him back. He still has a home here.”

What to Do If a Loved One Goes Missing CALL THE POLICE. Contact law enforcement agencies in the jurisdiction where you believe the person lived or was last seen. Give authorities as many details as possible, including dental and medical records that could match or rule out an identity if a body is found. Offer DNA swabs from relatives in case they need to compare them with DNA from unidentified human remains. Tell them to share the information with the FBI’s National Crime Information Center and the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System. CHECK WITH THE CORONER, JAILS, HOSPITALS. If you’re worried that the missing person is dead, offer DNA samples from a family member to the coroner or medical examiner, so they could compare them to any unidentified human remains. Also search inmate locators to find out if the person was arrested, and call hospitals in the area where the person was last known to live. REACH OUT TO ADVOCACY GROUPS. The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, known as NamUs (, will publish case information on an easy-to-search international database. The Bay Area-based Polly Klaas Foundation (PollyKlaas. org) helps families distribute flyers with information about a missing person. The Nor-Cal Alliance for the Missing ( provides resources for families searching for a lost loved one. HIRE A PRIVATE EYE. A private investigator can continue to chase leads so the family can focus on their personal obligations and return to work, if needed. IF THE PERSON IS A MINOR, CALL THE APPROPRIATE HOTLINES. Congress finances the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which runs a 24-hour hotline at 800.THE.LOST (800.843.5678).

a week ago.’ But at that point, he’d been missing for six months, or a year. So you can’t rely on that.” In 2015, Busch’s mother fell critically ill, and family renewed its search. Scadden filed a missing person report with the Morgan Hill police, marking the date of his disappearance as Nov. 26, 2012. With no signs of foul play, the authorities deemed Busch’s desertion “voluntary” and limited their investigation to a cursory database search. The family hired Ferris, who

An inside look at San Jose politics

A Jimmy Joke You Might Not Like On their way to a perfectly defeated season, the San Francisco 49ers suddenly got a gift from the football gods by trading a second Jimmy Garoppolo rounder for Jimmy Garoppolo. The only question now: when will the dreamy former New England Patriots quarterback take the field? Coach Kyle Shanahan has to balance tanking for high draft picks against seeing what he’s got in Garoppolo. The most likely scenario is the new signal-caller starts the Nov. 26 home game against Seattle. Oddsmakers have put the over/under at 35 on how many fans show up and stay in their seats to watch him play.

OUT OF SIGHT Newly leaked documents detail how Apple went to great lengths to avoid paying taxes in the U.S. by banking its profits in overseas tax havens.

Paradise Papers Nail Apple on Offshore Tax Scheme BY JENNIFER WADSWORTH At a U.S. Senate hearing convened in 2013, Apple CEO Tim Cook forcefully disputed allegations that the Cupertino-based company had dodged tens of billions of dollars in taxes by shifting profits overseas. “We pay all the taxes we owe,” he said from the dais, “every single dollar. We don’t depend on tax gimmicks. We don’t move intellectual property offshore and use it to sell our products back to the United States to avoid taxes. We don’t stash money on some Caribbean island.” Apple may not stash profits in a Caribbean tax haven, but it found another island refuge in the English Channel. According to a trove of newly leaked documents called the Paradise Papers, Cupertino-based Apple Inc. sidestepped government crackdowns by shifting profits from

SONIC RUNWAY The 432-foot

Ireland to Jersey, a tiny island with a corporate tax rate of 0 percent. Apple’s elaborate tax avoidance has been an open secret for years. But the Paradise Papers reveal how the iPhone maker in 2015 sidestepped tax reforms in Ireland—where it had parked profits in three “ghost firms” that claimed tax residency nowhere in the world—by expatriating its earnings to an even laxer regulatory climate. With the European Commission forcing Ireland to claim $14.5 billion in back taxes, Apple’s advisers began shopping around for another tax refuge. In 2014, Apple attorneys emailed a query to a law firm called Appleby, which specializes in creating offshore tax shelters. One of the 14 points in the questionnaire requested that the office: “Confirm that an Irish company can conduct management activities … without being subject to taxation in your jurisdiction.”

By setting up shop in Jersey, Apple continues to avoid taxes and amass $252 billion in offshore cash. The Irish government’s attempt to close loopholes has had little impact. The revelations in the Paradise Papers come as U.S. Republican lawmakers unveiled a sweeping overhaul of the tax code, which would permanently slash the corporate tax rate from 35 to 20 percent. That change alone is estimated to reduce federal revenues by $1.5 trillion over the coming decade. House Speaker Paul Ryan called the tax plan critical for allowing the U.S. to compete with the rest of the world. But according to the Paradise Papers and findings from the U.S. Senate inquiry four years ago, Apple—the most profitable firm on the planet—already pays an effective tax rate far below 35 percent by claiming its profits overseas.

Currently on a West Coast tour promoting her eighth album, Buried Treasure, Nashville-based country singer and songwriter Erica Sunshine Lee moseys on into the Willow Den’s weekly “Buck Night”—which features live country music and dollar beers from 8:30pm-10:30pm every Wednesday. Lee has earned a following with cheeky odes to living it up. Cases in point: “I’m a Pirate” celebrates sipping rum and making love on the high seas, while “Gimme Some of that Good Time” is an ode to getting tight on white lightning with good friends and the “taste of a kiss on a hot summer night.” (NV)

Touring behind their recently released LP, Beyond Desire, the New York-based Dead Leaf Echo swing through town, connecting with Cola frontman Cliff Rawson and gauzy San Francisco indie rock outfit Li Xi. Recorded with help from Guy Fixsen—known for his work with My Bloody Valentine, The Breeders and The Pixies— Beyond Desire blends reverberant shoegaze squall with gothy aesthetics. Rawson shares the bill and will be playing new Cola material solo as he prepares to take his band on a brief European tour this December. Li Xi opens the show and will certainly play music from their brand new self-titled full-length. (NV)

When it comes to pop country hooks, you’d be hard pressed to find a stronger earworm than the chorus of Canaan Smith’s “Love You Like That,” where he promises love “slow as the Mississippi, strong as a fifth of whiskey, steady as a Tom Petty track.” Currently on his Long Way From the Freeway Tour, the Indianaborn singer and songwriter brings his towering 2014 hit and much more to San Jose this week courtesy of local radio station KRTY. It’s a chance to catch a rising star in an intimate local venue. Nashville trio Levon and Missouri-born solo artist Filmore open the show. (SS)

Where there is truth, there is bound to be humor, and comedian Samantha Bee’s bare-all approach is representative of that. The hyperaware Bee, fearlessly exposes the hypocritical nature of the elite on her TBS comedy show Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. Her witty, razor-tongued jabs explore the most glaring topics of our flammable political climate and culture. The goofs border on social satire and activism, continually inciting frenzies on Twitter. Bee’s popularity sprouted from her 12-year-long deadpan reporting on Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show, recently deemed “the real fake news.” She served the longest tenure out of all Daily Show alums, including Stephen Colbert, John Oliver and Steve Carell.

When Deon Cole was 21, his friend offered him $50 to get up on stage and perform. He’s been hooked on standup ever since. For 25 years, Cole has made a career of examining the African American experience—pulling humor from pain and juxtaposing black and white culture. Since starring on the ABC sitcom Black-ish, Cole has earned a spin-off role in Grownish, which will focus on black college students, much like the Cosby Show spin-off A Different World. When’s he’s not acting, he writes for comedian Conan O’Brien’s late-night show and co-hosts the comedy game show Face Value on BET. (AJ)

Katherine Filice


metroactive ARTS

Secrets We Keep RESILIENCE Even in the face of adversity and harrowing loss, the pervasive message in Katherine Filice’s work is that we rise.

Entrepreneur, artist Katherine Filice unleashes inner turmoil abroad BY DEBRA ESKINAZI


ATHERINE FILICE never expected doodles would pave the way for her first ever art show in London. In fact, when she first started putting ink to paper, she wouldn’t have thought to show her work to anyone, let alone an entire art fair half a world away.

Offering a startling glimpse into everyday emotions, Filice creates penand-ink designs in the hopes that her art resonates with others, emphasizing that we are living a shared experience. Even the most well-adjusted people have fleeting moments of intense

emotions—feelings of frustration, pain, sorrow or betrayal. An active member in the community and executive creative director of a thriving marketing firm in the heart of downtown Gilroy, Filice has helped many to develop their brand. From multiple contracts throughout Gilroy and Morgan Hill to cities around the region, agencies and educational institutions including San Benito High School and San Jose State University, Filice, through her company, Articulate Solutions, has supported the marketing efforts of many entities. But after hours of meeting with the public, Filice steals away from her busy life and retreats to her home studio—an elegantly simple space with a wooden drafting table, a window and a few sitting chairs. “I draw energy from being alone, I

leave this space empowered,” says Filice. “This really is church to me.” With exceptional motor control, Filice spends at least a month working on a single design by hand— typically sketching freehand and then bringing the work to a light table. “Functionally, to get the lines to flow over form is really hard,” she says. “Someone told me once, it looks like I’ve peeled all the skin off.” The look of the musculature in her work, she says, was a byproduct of the technique, rather than intentional. Just two years ago, Filice, 54, picked up a pen and began drawing lines— hundreds upon thousands of curving lines. Eventually, recognizable forms began to take shape. The images are reminiscent of the posed human cadavers now on display at The Tech Museum’s new “Body Worlds: Decoded” exhibition. Which isn’t to say her illustrations are scientific in nature. Rather, Filice prefers to take something real and draw it using a realist approach, but then she likes to steps outside of that

reality and into surrealism. “All my work is a commingling of those two states: the dream and the awake,” Filice says. “That drives a lot of the symbolism in the stories.” Archetypal imagery, oftentimes religious in nature, like a snake or wings, is featured throughout Filice’s body of work. For Filice, there is a story and a language to each drawing that is consistent through all the pieces. “Something with feathers or wings in reference to the divine, an angel or spirit or [something] uplifting, something positive or transformative,” she says. “Where the serpent is typically representative of somebody not telling you the truth or not being true to themselves or not showing their true face to the world.” Many of Filice’s works reveal a duality that is present within all of us. One piece in particular, “Silenced,” is a manifestation of that. In the drawing, which Filice says brought her to tears and which she views as a breakthrough piece, features three faces or masks. “One day I just covered her mouth with a snake and I just got so emotional,” says Filice. “I realized what I was trying to say was that you have all these faces you present to the world. All of us do. We wear masks for work or whatever social situation we’re in. We put on a mask. And none of them is really who we are, but they’re all kind of lies and they all take away your voice.” In April 2017, she took the plunge and tweeted some big names in contemporary art, including the London-based Be Artist Be Art magazine and Artrooms. To her elation, Be Artist Be Art picked up one of her pieces for the magazine and soon Artrooms was tweeting at her, encouraging her to enter her application for Artrooms Fair London 2018. In September, Filice learned that she was one of the artists selected to appear—out of 1,150 applications from 65 countries. In January, Filice’s work will be shown at the Meliá White House in London, where it will surely be seen by representatives from many other art galleries, foundations and private collectors.

Mic Therapy COMIC RELIEF Standup comedy for better mental health is the unconventional recipe explored in ‘Buddy Solitaire.’

In ‘Buddy Solitaire’ a struggling comic helps others heal through standup BY RICHARD VON BUSACK


AYBE IF THE familiar brick wall standing behind comedians were riddled with bullet holes, they’d pick their material with more discernment: “Choose your next witticism carefully… it may be your last!” San Jose director Kuang Lee’s Buddy Solitaire starts with a masochistic L.A. comedian about to self-destruct.

First, Buddy (Brandon J. Sornberger) moans about the

pleasure of headlining on a Tuesday night to losers, then he detonates the very old and very bad joke about how they define a virgin girl out in the rural states. In shame the next morning, after pounding his head against the table—“ruining the ol’ money-maker,” as he tells his appalled, newly pregnant girlfriend—Buddy decides to get a real job. He takes up work as a therapist at Maple Hills rehab center. He teaches the patients there how to use comedy to heal themselves. They’re unimpressed by this failed insult comedian, and haze him, leading to dropped references to Dangerous Minds and Dead Poets Society. Neither of those films mentioned is a huge favorite in this corner, but Lee’s twist is that the back stories of the patients are

grist for material for Buddy’s routine, even as the patients are learning to craft standup routines of their own. The way Lee sets it up here, comedy is like jazz in Miles Davis’ definition— whether a note is sour or not all depends on the next note played. The cast is sharp, with Leann Lei quite serious as the queen bee of the ward, getting help because she burned down her husband’s house (“She Left-Eye’d him!” Buddy exclaims) and Shaun Clay as the patient coping with voices in his head. Another standout is the sardonic head of the center, Tyson (Garret Sato, an actor usually relegated to gangster roles), facing Buddy with the contempt he deserves. Lee was born in Taiwan, raised in Southern California, went to UCLA and Loyola Marymount, and then moved here to work on industrial films for Intel; down south he’d done TV promotional spots and a short documentary titled Eastside,

about skateboarders. In 2011 he was having a tough time: “I had relationship trouble, couldn’t find a job, and then my cat died. That was the worst, the last part. I tried exercise and meditation, and then I took a class at L.A. City College on comedy. It was hard—my jokes bombed at first, but it turned out to be better than therapy. The border between humor and madness is very thin—the career of Robin Williams is proof of that.” Lee took a break from his regular work to do the 17-day shoot in L.A.; a friend who ran a temporarily vacated youth center loaned him the facility so he could do the clinic scenes. The most formidable Sally Kirkland is Buddy’s pushy mother who’d had a comedy career of her own decades ago: imagine an evil Phyllis Diller. Kirkland shows why she once vied with Holly Hunter, Meryl Streep and Glenn Close once for an Oscar. Aged ladies swearing is always comedy gold, but there’s no audience-sopping twinkle in Kirkland’s fierceness as this profane mother who, in Buddy’s words always was “hitting me too hard, or holding me too close.” “Sally was great,” Lee says. “Obviously she has a lot of talent, but when it came to playing an extreme and flawed character, she had no fear. She wasn’t afraid to go to the edge.” Lee just finished production of his next film, Best Mom, shot in Orange County. “It’s similar to Buddy Solitaire, in that it’s about the power of comedy.” In it, Donna Mills of Knots Landing is a mother who joins an improv troupe to bond with her daughter (Krista Allen). He has another production slated after that, Caravan, a thriller that boomerangs into sci-fi territory, to be shot in the Interstate 5 badlands between L.A. and San Jose. In the meantime, Buddy Solitaire’s musing on the angst of comedy will occupy viewers waiting for the new season of Lady Dynamite to begin Nov 10.

Fully Charmed GRADUATES Two decades and still going strong, Third Eye Blind come to the City National Civic.

Third Eye Blind still love making music 20 years since breakout LP BY MIKE HUGUENOR


HILE THERE ARE plenty of factors pulling Stephan Jenkins into the past, the Third Eye Blind frontman is doing his best to stay in the now. When we spoke, Third Eye Blind had just played their first show of tour in Knoxville, Tennessee. Normally the first show of tour is something of a template for those that follow, but things seem different this time. Everything about Third Eye

Blind these days is about fluidity, and the present moment. “That moment where your thoughts, your actions, and their connection with nature all become one—that’s a flow state,” Jenkins says over the phone. “That’s nirvana. And when you’re really in a band that’s in full flight, that’s possible. And then the audience is eligible to have that same sense of feeling.” Third Eye Blind exploded onto rock radio in 1997 with hits “SemiCharmed Life,” “Jumper,” “Graduate,” and “How’s It Going To Be,” and have remained in heavy rotation since, recently completing a retrospective tour that had setlists spanning 18

years of music. Their current tour, which stops at the City National Civic on Nov. 14, draws from the band’s entire lifespan, from the self-titled breakout, to the 2016 EP, We Are Drugs. That release is the first of what, in 2012, Jenkins stated would be a series of EPs from the band. “The idea on that is that we want to have more flexibility with the tempo of engagement with our audience,” he says. “The LP has become an art form, but it’s a construct by business in order to make more money. We wanted to be able to put out music as we see fit. So if it’s five songs, we put out five songs. If it’s more, we put out more.” Though, in his quest for an eternal now, Jenkins understands that even that assertion might no longer hold entirely true. “It’s probably one of those moments where I said something

that and…really, didn’t mean it. Just to be real,” he says, laughing into the phone. “It sounded kick ass. But yeah, we like EPs and we might do more EPs.” Their most recent single, “Cop Vs. Phone Girl,” is a politically charged critique of American policing and features the lyric “why’s it so hard to say ‘black lives matter?’” “That song initially had so much excitement about it at radio, and then they got complaints,” Jenkins says, citing the black lives matter line. “Everybody just called up and would go, ‘blue lives matter!’ Just this idiocy of this false opposite.” Though the band may lean heavily left politically (they are from San Francisco, after all), the next stop after this tour will be in Okinawa, Japan, where they will play for American soldiers stationed overseas. Jenkins, who is a certified surfing instructor, will then give free surfing lessons to the soldiers. “I think it’s a nice kind of a retort to the despicable way this president exploits and mistreats service members,” he says. “When you have PTSD, you’re kind of always stuck with your trouble. And in surfing it just, like nothing else, puts you right into the moment. When that wave comes at you and you turn around, and you go into it, I promise you, you will not be paying attention to anything else.” Like surfing and activism, music connects people to the present moment. It’s this connection to a now rather than an idealized past that is most important to Jenkins. “Music makes you feel things,” he says. “You go and you have these feelings, and when you do that in a group then you have this palpable sense that you’re not alone. That you’re connected. That’s an amazing thing.” And if you want to feel connected to this show in particular, there’s an easy way to do it. “The setlist is fluid, so definitely tweet me @ stephanjenkins and let me know what you want to hear.”

John Gilhooley



THESE FUS SoCal hard rock vets Fu Manchu continue to search for the perfect groove at The Ritz.

Still Out There “SORRY ABOUT THE lateness,” says Scott Hill some 20 minutes late for our scheduled interview. “Rush hour traffic isn’t fun.” The singer and guitarist could be Jeff Spicoli apologizing to his history teacher. With his baggy clothes, Vans sneakers, and long blond hair, it’s easy enough to make the connection between the Fu Manchu frontman and Sean Penn’s iconic Fast Times at Ridgemont High character. But if you don’t want to kill his buzz, it’s better to avoid tacking the stoner rock label to his band.“Not the biggest fan of that term, but it’s fine,” he says wearily. Whether they partake or not, over the course of 11 full-length records, you won’t find any paeans to Fu Manchu weed. The San Clemente-based band’s enduring preoccupations have always been skateboarding, Nov 14, 7pm, $13.50 muscle car culture and science fiction—picture the The Ritz, San Jose Beach Boys as heavy-metal conspiracy theorists. “I just like straight-ahead, loud fuzzy rock,” Hill says, discussing the new Fu Manchu album due in February. “When you listen to a Fu Manchu record there’s not going to be reggae or anything mellow—that’s just the way it is.” Fu’s first three albums had a propensity for acid-fried guitar solos, but by 1997’s The Action is Go, they had burnished the Sabbath-in-sunshine formula to a high sheen. “I was never into anything jammy. I just thought that was hippy shit.” Then again, there are exceptions—such as the eight-minute fuzz-free instrumental “The Last Question” off 2014’s Gigantoid or the bluesy “Laserbl’ast” from Action Is Go. At this point in their career the tour bus has lost its charm, but Fu’s upcoming San Jose show is an outgrowth of a three-day festival in Vancouver headlined by Dead Kennedys. Hill, a major punk rock fan, jumped at the invite. “I just like playing live, so if I gotta hit the road I hit the road.” By the late 2000s Fu had been plying their gnarly groove for 20 years, but the mainstream eluded them. That changed, if only for a moment, when the song “Mongoose” made it into a Toyota commercial airing at halftime during the 2008 Super Bowl. It never went to the band’s head, but Hill did say he felt validated hearing it at a restaurant with his mother on game day. “She got to witness it, so that was cool. ‘See, mom? Letting us practice in the living room all those years—it paid off.’” —Andrew Lentz

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Adriana Martinez and Octavio Guillen got engaged to be married when they were both 15 years old. But they kept delaying a more complete unification for 67 years. At last, when they were 82, they celebrated their wedding and pledged their vows to each other. Are there comparable situations in your life, Aries? The coming months will be a favorable time to make deeper commitments. At least some of your reasons for harboring ambivalence will become irrelevant. You'll grow in your ability to thrive on the creative challenges that come from intriguing collaborations and highly focused togetherness. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I had pimples when

I was a teenager. They're gone now, although I still have a few pockmarks on my face as souvenirs. In retrospect, I feel gratitude for them. They ensured that in my early years of dating and seeking romance, I would never be able to attract women solely on the basis of my physical appearance. I was compelled to cultivate a wide variety of masculine wiles. I swear that at least half of my motivation to get smarter and become a good listener came from my desire for love. Do you have comparable stories to tell, Taurus? Now is an excellent time to give thanks for what once may have seemed to be a liability or problem.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The next two weeks

will be one of the best times ever to ask provocative, probing questions. In fact, I invite you to be as curious and receptive as you've been since you were 4 years old. When you talk with people, express curiosity more often than you make assertions. Be focused on finding out what you've been missing, what you've been numb to. When you wake up each morning, use a felttip marker to draw a question mark on your forearm. To get you in the mood for this fun project, here are sample queries from poet Pablo Neruda's Book of Questions: "Who ordered me to tear down the doors of my own pride? Did I finally find myself in the place where they lost me? Whom can I ask what I came to make happen in this world? Is it true our desires must be watered with dew? What did the rubies say standing before the juice of the pomegranates?"

CANCER (June 21-July 22): "Things to say when in love," according to Zimbabwe poet Tapiwa Mugabe: "I will put the galaxy in your hair. Your kisses are a mouthful of firewater. I have never seen a more beautiful horizon than when you close your eyes. I have never seen a more beautiful dawn than when you open your eyes." I hope these words inspire you to improvise further outpourings of adoration. You're in a phase when expressing your sweet reverence and tender respect for the people you care about will boost you physical health, your emotional wealth, and your spiritual resiience. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Are you working on solving

the right problem? Or are you being distracted by a lesser dilemma, perhaps consumed in dealing with an issue that's mostly irrelevant to your long-term goals? I honestly don't know the answers to those questions, but I am quite sure it's important that you meditate on them. Everything good that can unfold for you in 2018 will require you to focus on what matters most—and not get sidetracked by peripheral issues or vague wishes. Now is an excellent time to set your unshakable intentions.

experiences loneliness. We all go through periods when we feel isolated and misunderstood and unappreciated. That's the bad news, Virgo. The good news is that the coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to make loneliness less of a problem. I urge you to brainstorm and meditate about how to do that. Here are some crazy ideas to get you started. 1. Nurture ongoing connections with the spirits of beloved people who have died. 2. Imagine having conversations with your guardian angel or spirit guide. 3. Make a deal with a "partner in loneliness": a person you pray or sing with whenever either of you feels bereft. 4.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The drive for absolute perfection could undermine your ability to create what's very good and just right. Please don't make that mistake in the coming weeks. Likewise, refrain

By ROB BREZSNY week of November 8

from demanding utter purity, pristine precision, or immaculate virtue. To learn the lessons you need to know and launch the trends you can capitalize on in 2018, all that's necessary is to give your best. You don't have to hit the bull's eye with every arrow you shoot—or even any arrow you shoot. Simply hitting the target will be fine in the early going.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Remember the time, all those years ago, when the angels appeared to you on the playground and showed you how and why to kiss the sky? I predict that a comparable visitation will arrive soon. And do you recall the dreamy sequence in adolescence when you first plumbed the sublime mysteries of sex? You're as ripe as you were then, primed to unlock more of nature's wild secrets. Maybe at no other time in many years, in fact, have you been in quite so favorable a position to explore paradise right here on earth.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): As a courtesy to your mental health, I minimize your exposure to meaningless trivia. In fact, I generally try to keep you focused instead on enlightening explorations. But in this horoscope, in accordance with astrological omens, I'm giving you a temporary, short-term license to go slumming. What shenanigans is your ex up to lately, anyway? Would your old friend the bankrupt coke addict like to party with you? Just for laughs, should you revisit the dead-end fantasy that always makes you crazy? There is a good possibility that exposing yourself to bad influences like those I just named could have a tonic effect on you, Sagittarius. You might get so thoroughly disgusted by them that you'll never again allow them to corrupt your devotion to the righteous groove, to the path with heart. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In the coming

months it will be crucial to carefully monitor the effects you're having on the world. Your personal actions will rarely be merely personal; they may have consequences for people you don't know as well as those you're close to. The ripples you send out in all directions won't always look dramatic, but you shouldn't let that delude you about the influence you're having. If I had to give 2018 a title with you in mind, it might be "The Year of Maximum Social Impact." And it all starts soon.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The punk ethic is rebellious. It transgresses conventional wisdom through "a cynical absurdity that's redeemed by being hilarious." So says author Brian Doherty. In the hippie approach, on the other hand, the prevailing belief is "love is all you need." It seeks a "manic togetherness and all-encompassing acceptance that are all sweet and no sour—inspiring but also soft and gelatinous." Ah, but what happens when punk and hippie merge? Doherty says that each moderates the extreme of the other, yielding a tough-minded lust for life that's both skeptical and celebratory. I bring this to your attention, Aquarius, because the punk-plus-hippie blend is a perfect attitude for you to cultivate in the coming weeks. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I'm falling in love with the way you have been falling in love with exciting possibilities that you once thought were impossible. Oh, baby. Please go further. Thrilling chills surge through me whenever you get that ravenous glint in your mind's eye. I can almost hear you thinking, "Maybe those dreams aren't so impossible, after all. Maybe I can heal myself and change myself enough to pursue them in earnest. Maybe I can learn success strategies that were previously beyond my power to imagine." Homework: If you could change your astrological sign, what would you change it to and why? Write:

Save the World GOOD WILL HOSSEINI The Tech Awards honored bestselling author and Independence High School grad Khaled Hosseini for his work as a UN goodwill ambassador.

Humanitarians get up close, personal at revamped Tech Awards BY GARY SINGH


AST SATURDAY, the Tech Museum of Innovation officially rebranded its signature event, the Tech Awards, pivoting to a new concept called Tech for Global Good. Instead of a separate lavish gala banquet for hundreds of tuxedos and high rollers, the event now unfolds in museum spaces, giving attendees direct access to the award-winning laureates for extended periods of time. The awards also now dovetail with

the museum’s mission as a whole. High rollers were still present, but the tuxedos were not. The James C. Morgan Global Humanitarian Award went to Khaled Hosseini, Independence High School graduate and author of The Kite Runner. He originally came to the U.S. as a war refugee from Afghanistan and now does extensive work as a goodwill ambassador to the U.N. refugee agency (UNHCR). Addressing the crowd, Hosseini said that his work jibes with that of the Tech for Global Good program. He’s inviting young people to feel part of a larger global community as they begin to inherit the world’s problems like refugees and climate change. When it came to the laureates, instead of 10 people accepting

their awards on stage, five laureates simultaneously answered questions in different areas of the museum. Attendees were allowed to choose which laureate they wanted to hear, and which ones they wanted to question. This took place for about 30 minutes, and giving attendees the time and space to interact with whichever laureate they wanted was a much more productive scenario than the previous Tech Awards, where laureates merely stood at cocktail tables before being mobbed by the crowd; they couldn’t really talk to people in a true Q&A fashion. Each winning laureate now also receives his or her own dedicated installation in the museum, which is essentially a sit-down booth that plays an interactive video of the awardwinning project. When I stopped by the day before the celebration, the booths were already up for the general public, and kids were glued to each video, actually paying attention to

the stories. The videos will remain on display in the museum until the next Tech for Global Good celebration a year from now. And when it came to the stories, the Tech Museum made sure to first fill everyone up with food and drinks before screening the documentary videos of the five award-winning projects. Each video was about four minutes long and each project was staggering in its degree of global influence and tear-jerking empathy. As an example, Crisis Text Line is a nonprofit organization that enables anyone in crisis or pain to anonymously text with a trained counselor, absolutely free, 24/7. Depression, suicide, substance abuse, domestic violence, anxiety, bullying or any similar issue is addressed. Since texting is a private and quiet phenomenon, users don’t need to speak out loud or sneak off somewhere to call for advice in crisis situations. As of right now, Crisis Text Line has exchanged more than 45 million messages since 2013 and their work has led to the largest mental health data set that’s ever been collected and analyzed. After the video screening, founder Nancy Lublin was a total rock star during her presentation, elaborating on her funding process, the details of how the users remain anonymous via encryption, and how her goal is to help a billion people over the next dozen years. The other four laureates shared similar stories. Josh Nesbit, CEO of Medic Mobile, was originally an undergraduate at Stanford who wanted to be a doctor. At age 19 he volunteered in Malawi and realized remote villages did not have regular access to community health workers, so he wound up providing mobile phone software to better connect them to hospitals. In India, Forus Health developed a machine to help eradicate preventable blindness, reaching more than 2 million people around the world. A Brazilian company called Livox similarly created a tablet computer to help disabled people communicate better. Headquartered in Seattle, PATH, an international health organization, is now facilitating vaccines in sub-Saharan Africa. Even with a new rebranding, Tech for Global Good was still the righteous uplifting event I expected. Just being in the same room with motivated, ambitious, goal-driven people was downright inspiring. Maybe the world is salvageable after all.

One Last Dance PIGGIN’ OUT Google’s proposed office complex will lead to the removal of the iconic Stephen's Meats sign, but the neighborhood still has Hapa’s Brewing Co.

Au revoir to Stephen’s Meats sign, hello to fun times at Hapa’s Brewing Co. BY TOMEK MACKOWIAK


FOUND MR. Harada staring at a dancing pig across the street from one of our favorite drinking establishments. The little guy has been shaking his ham hocks high above Montgomery Street since 1948, once the beacon of Stephen’s Meats, a legendarily good sausage maker that finally collapsed under the weight of vertical integration developed by the likes of Oscar Meyer.

So, since 2005, the neon pig has been shucking and jiving without purpose, and he’ll soon be asked to vacate the dance floor forever more. Word is that Patty’s Inn will also go due to the Great Google Land Grab. Mr. Harada stood and stared into the neon and took a hard pull from a brown paper bag. It’s the all too common sign of anti-hyperventilation, a symbol of contemplation about the inevitable passing of time where the past, present and future collide. Taking stock of Mr. Harada’s anxiety, I suggested we visit a taproom on Lincoln Avenue. Rumors abounded about a pleasant establishment recently built inside the bones of a long-gone wine warehouse. I

figured it would help Mr. Harada cope with the expectant loss of his beloved piglet. The location was close enough to walk, so I suggested we “hoof it.” I immediately regretted the choice of words, as Mr. Harada’s eyes swelled with man tears. Luckily, four horsemen were also making their way down the street. The odd group stopped to chat and seemed friendly enough. The first equestrian had trophies hanging from the saddle; the second was dressed in tactical gear; the third had the look of a model (gaunt and sickly); and the fourth … well, I’m sorry to report the fourth rider looked dead. I assumed he’d just imbibed a bit too much back at the ranch. Directing my queries to the winner-type up front, I asked if they knew what was going to replace Stephen’s neon ballerina and Patty’s Inn. The rider informed us it was a

company also known for its sausage fests, which aroused good cheer from Mr. Harada and myself. We joined the riders on their steeds and triumphantly trotted to Hapa’s Brewing Co. We tied up the horses to the bannister that runs the length of the renovated building and proceeded inside for libations and thoughtful repartee. The airy interior of the brewery showcases the original timbers of the aged building, providing a welcoming feel which only continued when we met the tapmasters. Hapa’s is an excellent place to enjoy a pint. It’s modern but wears history like a badge of honor. The brewery— one of only a dozen or so in San Jose; a shortage that must be rectified!— combines character with a clean space that allows gentlemen the freedom to muse and move about. The rattle of the light rail floats in through the back doors, adding to the charm. I scanned the menu of offerings and offered to buy a round of the Pillars of Creation (New England double IPA) or the LIttle Angel (mocha porter) for our horsemen friends. Incredibly, my suggestion was met with outrage. Sensitive types, I suppose, they rode off with a mighty thunderclap. This proved fortunate, as I patted my breast pockets and came back empty. I was forced to clean out Mr. Harada’s loose change sock to leverage the necessary capital, including tip! Mr. Harada and I began to cheer up as we enjoyed the Amish Rifle (red ale), Hungry Dog (IPA), Ghost of Jupiter (double IPA) and Star Queen (New England IPA), all of which were well executed. However, I lament that my efforts were not entirely successful. Mr. Harada was distant, far off, melancholic, as if his mind had floated off to another place and time. He eventually looked over to me, as if to say something important, and quietly slid me a napkin. It read: “the neon will always glow brighter than those who seek to destroy it.”

LET’S CUTTLE Must Be Thai’s Navy Seal the Deal! is a must-try.

5 to Watch in November


IX MONTHS IS usually considered the earliest a new restaurant, bar or coffeeshop can receive a fair review. By then the kinks should be ironed out, the bad apples fired and the dishes and drinks refined. But who’s got time for that?
