Rhapsodies Paradise Loss

An Idaho visitor has some tips for our ‘cycling mecca’ BY JOHN BORSTELMANN

I

spent two weeks this past month vacationing and riding my road bike around the stunningly beautiful, rugged country of western Sonoma County. Levi Leipheimer wasn’t exaggerating when he described your home as world-class cycling country. A local cyclist told me that the number of road cyclists has really increased in the last five years, and it’s no wonder why. The climate, terrain and amenities are superb; great food, beer, wine and accommodations all attract healthy, vigorous, affluent cyclists. This demographic group is great for local businesses, the kind of visitors you really should encourage. However, a couple of serious flaws exist in your cycling paradise. First, your county roads are in terrible shape, potholed and badly patched when patched at all. They are worse than our Idaho county roads! Bad roads can be dangerous for cyclists. Flat tires, broken wheels and, worse, crashes causing injury can all result from an unexpected smash into a pothole. Your roads are also typically narrow, with no shoulders. Second, some drivers are very inconsiderate and even dangerously aggressive about passing. Cyclists have a right to be on the roads; we pay gas and property taxes, too. Cyclists almost always will stay as far to the right as possible, but if there are no shoulders, and the road edge is littered with gravel, debris, broken glass and trash, cyclists must ride in the travel lane. It really isn’t much fun to fear for your life from speeding cars and trucks while riding up a steep hill at your limit, hugging the white line, trying not to wobble at all. Cyclists also need to be more considerate of drivers. I saw a number of riders in large groups backing up traffic or riding in the middle of the travel lane for no reason. Inconsiderate behavior like this is unsafe and guaranteed to make some drivers annoyed. I truly hope that drivers and cyclists will learn to co-exist with mutual respect and consideration, so no cyclists are killed or injured while doing what they love. All it takes is a little bump with your rearview mirror, and you’ll send a cyclist into a tree or a ditch, and on to the hospital, or the morgue. John Borstelmann lives in Driggs, Idaho.

BottleRock Blues

Napa has indeed changed (“Start of Something Big,” May 8). It’s the Monday after the BottleRock festival. I watched from a distance the effect this gathering (for profit) has had on the Napa Expo neighborhood. And I purposely did not attend, and avoided the area to keep out of traffic jams. The reason why I did not attend, and I’m not alone in this reason: I could not afford the ticket price. I quickly dismissed the offer to volunteer after finding out on the website that there would be a $15 processing fee to apply to volunteer. That gave me a sign of what the promoters were all about. The ultimate comment should really be coming from the many residents of the Juarez Street to East Avenue to Fairview Drive neighborhoods, who were subjected to the crowds that saturated the Expo area. I wonder what percentage of them look forward to BottleRock 2014, for which, in the spirit of promotion, tickets are already on sale? Don’t know about the 2014 volunteer application process.

Top Chefs I’m certain that chefs Kronmark and Doppelfeld were able to offer top-notch training for our returning veteran warriors (“Kitchen Call,” May 8). Both have the professional demeanor that lends itself to proper guidance and direction rather than the idiotic, stereotypical shouting matches that are popularized by some current TV shows. These men have what it takes to provide the necessary ingredient for our wounded recovering veterans—and that ingredient is heart.

Beautifully Played

I just wanted to say thank you to the Healdsburg Jazz Festival for the Marcus Shelby Orchestra with Faye Carol and the HJF Freedom Jazz Choir show at the Community Baptist Church in Santa Rosa last Saturday night. The atmosphere was great, and the performance of “a musical suite . . . inspired by the civil rights movement” was absolutely fantastic, emotional and beautifully played. The jazz big band was scorching, and to see a hundred local people in the choir was a thrill.

Oyster Myopia I am shocked to see the misleading signs regarding Drakes Bay Oyster Company popping up around Sonoma and Marin counties. These signs should say “Save Pt. Reyes Wilderness.” I strongly support organic, sustainable agriculture and I love oysters, but the attempt by Drakes Bay Oyster Company and their corporate allies to deny wilderness status to Drakes Estero has nothing to do with farming and everything to do with opening publicly owned wilderness lands to development. Pt. Reyes National Seashore is a wonderful example of cooperation between agriculture, the national park system and wilderness. My family, friends and thousands of other people worked for years to protect this national treasure. The current owners bought the oyster company in 2005 with seven years remaining on their permit, knowing that the Estero is a designated wilderness area. They should honor their lease agreement and contracts, follow the rules and policies and respect the 1976 wilderness designation. This is not an issue of “farmer” vs. big government. The real issue here is that private development and industry interests have been working for years to overturn environmental laws and

allow natural-resource extraction and commercial development in the wilderness areas, national parks, oceans, estuaries and other publicly owned and protected lands. As a member of the public, one of the millions of owners of the Point Reyes National Seashore, I urge all Americans to protect Drakes Estero wilderness and stop the attempt to privatize and commercialize our national park and wilderness systems. American taxpayers have waited 40 years for wilderness designation for Drakes Bay Marine Estuary in our beloved Point Reyes National Seashore. Please let any restaurant or business displaying one of these signs or serving Drakes Bay oysters know that you support our National Parks, the law and wilderness designation for Drakes Estero in Pt. Reyes National Seashore.

The Final Four

So just how ‘clean’ are the companies vying for the Sonoma Clean Power job? BY RACHEL DOVEY

W

ith the tentative approval of Sonoma Clean Power by the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors, each of the county’s municipalities has a choice to make. With a short-list of four potential energy suppliers, the county’s Community

Choice Aggregation—which would break with PG&E to buy power on the open market—is poised to go forward pending each city’s yea or nay. Like Marin Clean Power, individuals will be given the ability to opt-out and continue receiving service from PG&E. What may sound like a no-brainer for green-conscious, PG&E-wary

Sonoma County is complicated by the concept of buying power from one of four out-of-state bidders, each offering a different mix of fossil-fuel, nuclear and renewable options. According to Cordel Stillman, who is heading up the research for the nascent program on behalf of the Sonoma County Water Agency, the final four were chosen based on overall price, financial viability, power supply, use of local renewable ) 10 energy and assistance

More than 40 years after John Carlos and Tommie Smith—the U.S. bronze and gold medal winners in the 200-meter sprint at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City—raised their fists in a black power salute on the Olympic podium, the iconic image still induces goose bumps. Carlos and Smith planned the statement in solidarity with the Civil Rights movement as a way to protest the racism and poverty afflicting so many African Americans in the United States, and they paid dearly for having a political conscience in a supposedly apolitical and commercialized sports world. The two men were ordered suspended from the team by the International Olympic Committee and ultimately expelled from Mexico. On their return to America, ostracized from the professional sports world, Carlos and Smith received death threats and had a hard time finding jobs to support their families. In a television interview, Carlos stood by his actions, saying, “We were trying to wake the country up and wake the world up!” Carlos tells his tale in The John Carlos Story, the 2011 book cowritten with firebrand sports editor of The Nation Dave Zirin. An activist to this day, the champion track athlete is a founding member of the Olympic Project for Human Rights and was elected to the National Track and Field Hall of Fame in 2003. Carlos is on a speaking tour coinciding with the book’s publication, and the SRJC Black Student Union and the NAACP of Sonoma County host an evening with John Carlos on Saturday, May 18, in the Bertolini Student Center, room 4608. 1501 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. 4pm. $50. 707.527.4647. —Leilani Clark

during startup. Sonoma County will examine the speciďŹ cs of each supply more thoroughly during the next bidding round, he says. Below, we take a look at the ďŹ nal four, including their top employees, the mix of energy they offer and any iffy business practices or human-rights violations theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been associated with. Like the cities prepping to make a choice, readers can make their own decision as to how truly â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenâ&#x20AC;? these corporations are, and whether they top PG&E.

NRG Energy Headquarters West Windsor Township, N.J., and Houston, Texas At the helm David Crane, president and CEO, has been with the company for 10 years, working in various positions at International Power and Lehman Brothers before that. Kirkland Andrews, VP and CFO, also comes from banking, working with Citigroup and Deutsche Bank prior to joining NRG. Energy mix Of its nearly 100 plants and facilities sprinkled around the United States, roughly one-tenth is solar or wind, with the rest generating power from fossil fuels. Crane has stated a goal of curbing the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carbon emissions, but though its use of coal and oil total only about oneďŹ fth of the total mix, NRG relies on fracked natural gas. All of its California plants use natural gas. As of 2012, it owned a 44 percent share in one nuclear facility in South Texas.

Direct Energy Headquarters Houston, Texas At the helm Badar Khan replaced longtime CEO Chris Weston in April of this year. Before his 10 years with Direct and its parent company, Centrica, Khan worked for a variety of corporations and consultants, including the controversial pair KPMG and Deloitte. While the former company created fraudulent tax shelters for high-ups in the ďŹ nance industryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; withholding as much as $2.5 billionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; the latter has been accused of

money laundering for the Iranian government and publishing false information on behalf of the tobacco industry. Former CEO Weston has been an outspoken advocate of governmental deregulations of the energy industry. Energy mix The company purchases electricity from ďŹ ve wind farms in Texas and owns 4,600 natural gas wells in Alberta, Canada, purchased from Suncor Energy and Shell Canada. Ratios of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fossil fuel-to-renewable power sources are not published on its website. The dirt Between 2001 and 2004, Direct Energy was found by several regulators to have signed up unwitting clients in four U.S. states and two Canadian provinces. According to a newspaper report, the company brought attention to itself by accidentally signing up an Atlanta man who had been dead for over 20 years. It was charged with unethical business practices and ďŹ ned $500,000 stateside and $150,000 in Canada.

35 percent is fossil-fuel-based, with hydro, wind and solar making up another 10 percent. The dirt Though Exelon has supported cap-and-trade legislationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the largely nuclear organization would likely beneďŹ t if such policies limited the availability of fossil fuelsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it is not without environmental blemishes. In 2005, it was ďŹ ned $600,000 for a sulfur dioxide leak from a generation station in Pennsylvania. In 2006, the company disclosed that one of its Illinois nuclear plants had leaked more than 6 million gallons of water laced with radioactive hydrogen, known as tritium, since the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s.

Roughly 55 percent of Exelonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total energy is nuclear; another 35 percent is fossilfuel-based.

Constellation (now Exelon) Headquarters Baltimore, Md., and Chicago, Ill. At the helm Kenneth Cornew is the current president and CEO of Constellation, which was purchased by Exelon in 2012. He has been with the parent company since 2003. Christopher Crane, president and CEO of Exelon, comes from nuclear energy, working in management for plants in Texas and Arizona before joining Exelon in â&#x20AC;&#x2122;98. Energy mix Not surprisingly, considering its CEOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s background, Exelon bills itself as the largest owner and operator of nuclear plants in the United States. With 10 plants and 17 reactors, roughly 55 percent of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total energy is nuclear. Another

ConEdison Solutions Headquarters New York City At the helm Kevin Burke, the CEO of parent company Consolidated Edison, has been with the organization in various positions since 1973. Energy mix An energy retailer, ConEdison Solutions offers several â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenâ&#x20AC;? packages, including wind from national farms and wind from farms in consumersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; regional area. The company will also install solar systems upon request. In New York City, its parent company supplies customers with a mix of electricity and heat imported from a hydroelectric plant in Quebec and a handful of gas and electric utilities. The dirt Like PG&E, many of ConEdisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problems have involved maintenanceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and lack thereofâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;of New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aging pipe system. According to a report by Public Campaign, ConEdison was high on a list of companiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; topped by GE and PG&Eâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that paid no federal taxes between 2008 and 2011. During that same period, the company reportedly spent almost $2 million in lobbying fees.


IN THE ABBEY Brian Hunt, pictured here in 2010, says he’s been harassed for 20 years by people wanting his beer at home.

Moonlight’s Brian Hunt (finally) set to open tasting room in Santa Rosa BY NICOLAS GRIZZLE

M

oonlight Brewing owner, brewmaster, quality-control engineer, delivery man and part-time philosopher Brian Hunt doesn’t make beer for money. He’s been asked several times in the 20-year history of the Santa Rosa brewery why he never signed a distribution deal. “I just don’t care,” he says nonchalantly.

“I’m not in this to make a big pile of money. I do this because I love beer.” Since 1992, his brews have existed without so much as a bottle to call home. Beers like Death and Taxes, Twist of Fate and Lunatic Lager are like nomads, popping up wherever they can in cafes, pubs and restaurants for extended stays, and there’s a waiting list of over a hundred places that would love to have just one of Moonlight’s brews on tap. They have never been

available to enjoy at home unless one were willing to purchase at least five and a half gallons at once. Hunt says staying small is his way of controlling quality—and keeping the battle of supply vs. demand in his favor. “I’ve been harassed for about 20 years by people who want it at home,” says Hunt. “The only place to come pick it up was from me.” But now, all that’s about to change. Hunt recently announced his plans to open a tasting room in Santa Rosa, hoping to open by the

end of summer. “It’s not a pub,” he says. “It’s not a place to linger— more of a growler-filling station, and you can have a pint while your growler is filled.” The new location on Coffey Lane will also have a couple new tanks for brewing, leading to an increase in production. This comes to the delight of fans of his beer, some of whom are so fervent they have mapped out locations that serve it (Flavor in Santa Rosa is the most reliable, with five taps dedicated to Moonlight). “All their beers are the perfect example of the style,” says enthusiast Craig Tierney. “He’s really careful to make sure the people are drinking beer that’s fresh.” Collin McDonnell, cofounder of Petaluma’s HenHouse Brewing, agrees. “Brian is one of the best brewers in the nation,” he says. “There’s a lot of interest in Moonlight beer beyond the brewing community.” McDonnell is excited about the prospect of taking home some Moonlight outside of his own belly. “The ability to go there and see what kind of cool things he has to pull out is amazing.” Hunt isn’t some hobbyist who just likes to make a batch of beer now and then. He earned his brewing degree from UC Davis in 1980 and worked at Schlitz brewery in Milwaukee. His black lager, Death and Taxes, was the first creation he made at home, and is still the brewery’s most popular. “I had this taste of beer in my mind, and there was nothing like it, so I had to make it.” Lately, Hunt has been exploring the idea of unhopped beer, a style sometimes known as gruit (pronounced “grew-it”). About 500 years ago, hops were illegal in England, and Hunt has several recipes that don’t contain the cannabis relative. Working for Tips is one example; it’s made with redwood twigs from his front yard. For Hunt, brewing is about experimentation and innovation. “A brewer’s job is to make delicious in a glass,” he says. “I want beer to taste like poetry.” For more information, visit www.moonlightbrewing.com.

Poached Eggs & Pasta Fans of Dierk’s alwayscrowded Parkside location now have another option for top-notch breakfast at decent prices. Dierk’s Midtown Cafe (1422 Fourth St., Santa Rosa) is now open for breakfast and lunch. As the buzz hasn’t caught on yet, it’s a good time to get Dierk’s thick bacon, poached eggs or goat cheese in any of the breakfast dishes without having to elbow for position in line. Plus, the jam on each table is as good as ever, and there can never be too much on a slab of toast. Think of the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland, swishing around his knife on the White Rabbit’s pocket watch, getting jam everywhere. Now imagine that watch as a piece of toast about to enter your mouth. That’s my kind of toast. Dierk’s occupies what was for years the now-closed Paolo’s Ravioli Deli, whose ravioli was well-liked—but fear not, local ravioli lovers. Canevari’s Deli on Lewis Road, open since 1932, is making its famous ravioli available in grocery stores for the first time in its history. G&G Supermarket has it now; watch for other stores to pick it up soon.—Nicolas Grizzle

Wineries

Most reviews by James Knight. Note: Those listings marked ‘WC’ denote wineries with caves. These wineries are usually only open to the public by appointment. Wineries in these listings appear on a rotating basis.

SONOMA CO U N TY Alexander Valley Vineyards At family-run Alexander Valley Vineyards, the Wetzels serve as curators of local history, having restored Cyrus’ original adobe and schoolhouse. 8644 Hwy. 128, Healdsburg. Tasting room open daily, 10am–5pm. 707.433.7209.

Chateau St. Jean Winery Take the educational tour and sample both reserve and premier wines on acres of vineyard with gardens and gourmet food. Famed Riesling and rare Malbec. 8555 Sonoma Hwy., Kenwood. Open daily, 10am–5pm. 707.833.4134.

Dutcher Crossing Winery Barnlike room offers fireplace to warm the mitts on winter days; owner Debra Mathy leads monthly bike rides in better weather. Try the Maple Vineyard Zinfandel; ask the well-informed staff about the Penny Farthing bicycle. 8533 Dry Creek Road, Healdsburg. Open daily 11am– 5pm. Tasting fee $5–$10. 866.431.2711.

John Tyler Wines For decades, the Bacigalupis have been selling prized grapes to the likes of Chateau Montelena and Williams Selyem. Now, the third-generation wine growers offer the pick of the vineyard in their own tasting room, brandnew in 2011. Graceful Pinot and sublime Zin. 4353 Westside Road, Healdsburg. Open dail,y 10:30am–5pm. Tastings $10. 707.473.0115.

Mayo Family Winery Excellent place to pair food with wine, as tastings are matched with specific food items. 9200 Sonoma Hwy., Kenwood. Open daily, 10:30am–6:30pm. 707.933.5504.

Nicholson Ranch (WC) Best known for its Chardonnays and a winery tour from the depths of the caves to the height of the property’s

grandmother oak. 4200 Napa Road, Sonoma. Open daily, 11am–6pm; tours by appointment. 707.938.8822.

Hwy., Calistoga. 9:30am–5pm. Tasting fees, $10–$15; tours, $25–$30. Napa Neighbor discounts. 707.967.6272.

Sebastiani The winery is charming and warm, with wines that are mostly straightforward, honest affairs. One of the best picnic areas around. 389 Fourth St. E., Sonoma. Open daily, 10am– 5pm. 707.933.3230.

Folie à Deux A good picnic

Timber Crest Farms Animal labels abound at Peterson Winery’s expanded tasting room adjacent the cellar. Is that a Jackalope, or is that just the Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel? Also on hand is Papapietro-Perry and the six Family Wineries of Dry Creek. Dashe Cellars crafts mainly powerful Zinfandels and other reds. At Kokomo Winery, it’s about the reds. Also look for Mietz Cellars, Lago di Merlo and Collier Falls. 4791 Dry Creek Road, Healdsburg. Tasting rooms generally open daily from around 11am to 4:30pm. 707.433.0100. 707.431.7568.

N A PA CO U N TY Bennett Lane Winery The old trope “beer-drinking NASCAR fans vs. Chardonnaysipping highbrows” runs out of gas at a winery that sponsors an annual NASCAR race and has its own car, emblazoned with grapes. A Roman emperor who appreciated hearty vino as much as a good chariot race inspired Maximus White and Red “feasting wines.” 3340 Hwy. 128, Calistoga. 707.942.6684.

Castello di Amorosa Not only an “authentic Medieval Italian castle,” but authentically far more defensible than any other winery in Napa from legions of footmen in chain mail. In wine, there’s something for every taste, but don’t skip the tour of great halls, courtyards, cellars, and–naturally–an authentic dungeon. . 4045 N. St. Helena

or party wine, the Ménage à Trois–white, red and rosé–are tasty blends. 3070 N. St. Helena Hwy, St. Helena. Open daily, 10am–5pm. 1.800.473.4454.

Madonna Estate Millennial contingent of multigenerational family winery, once known as Mount St. John, finds success running it old-school: touristy, oldfashioned, and wildly popular. Refreshing Gewürztraminer for summer picnics. 5400 Old Sonoma Road, Napa. Daily 10am to 5pm; $5–$10. 707.255.8864.

Olabisi & Trahan Wineries In the fancy heart of downtown Napa, a low-budget “cellar” where wines are shelved, with clever economy, in stacks of wood pallets; vibes are laid-back and real. Carneros Chardonnay and fruity but firm and focused Cab and Merlot from Suisin Valley, Napa’s much less popular stepsister to the east. 974 Franklin St., Napa. Open daily, noon–5:30pm. Tasting fee, $15. 707.257.7477.

Stony Hill Vineyard In the 1940s, advisers from UC Davis told them, “Under no circumstances plant Chardonnay.” So they planted Chardonnay. Intimate tastings in the flagstone-studded, Eisenhower-era McCrea living room; Chardonnay and White Riesling are legends. 3331 St. Helena Hwy., St. Helena. By appointment, Monday through Friday, weekends when available. $25. 707.963.2636.

Storybook Mountain Vineyards (WC) Jerry and Sigrid Seps and a few likeminded winemakers founded Zinfandel Advocates and Producers (ZAP), through which they continue to proselytize on behalf of “America’s heritage grape.” 3835 Hwy. 128, Calistoga. By appointment. 707.942.5310.

Amista Vineyards Up Dry Creek Without a Zinfandel BY JAMES KNIGHT nyway, like I was saying, Syrah is one versatile grape. You can press it, crush it, punch it down, co-ferment it, saignée it, méthode champenoise it. There’s red Syrah, Syrah rosé and even sparkling Syrah. That’s about it. Amista’s got them all.

A

Proprietors Vicky and Michael Farrow envisioned Amista— which loosely means “making friends,” although my translation widget suggests “fabricación de amigos,” a winery name one notch cooler, don’t you think?—as their retirement project. I’m guessing that they made fast friends with a viticultural adviser in thrall to the late-’90s “boom” in Syrah, because they ended up planting a good deal of it. So what if people come to Dry Creek Valley mainly for the Zinfandel? The Farrows made “sparkling Syrah”—and it made them a lot of friends. Amista’s just off Dry Creek Road, at the end of a long, purely functional gravel driveway separating two vineyard blocks. Conveniently close to the Dry Creek General Store, Amista’s shaded patio is a popular bring-your-own-picnic spot. Wine club members often make reservations for a small patio party. Inside, clues abound that the tasting room was intended to be a 10,000case working cellar—the center drain, the roll-ups, the ventilation— but, well, retirement isn’t supposed to be a full-time job. Staff are friendly, and I didn’t overhear any heavy wine-club pitches. All wines are from the estate’s Morningsong Vineyards, Dry Creek Valley, unless noted. First up, there’s a bonus bubbly, the NV Blanc de Blancs ($34). Made up of estate-grown Chardonnay, and fizzed up at Hopland’s Rack and Riddle, this solid sparkler smells of dried apple wafers and sour apple candy—bright, green Granny Smith flavor and just half a teaspoon of sweetness on the finish. Amista gets its Zin grapes from down the road. The 2008 Saini Farms Zinfandel ($34) is toasty and sweet, raspberry jam on graham cracker, with malted carob ball—I’m just grazing from the bulk bins today—and a warm, well-knit finish. I’m told that the NV Sparkling Syrah ($32) makes a really good mimosa. But not a sunrise mimosa: this isn’t that blood-red sparkling Shiraz; it’s pink, creamy and vaguely aromatic of seashell or oysters—or maybe that’s just the food pairing. The 2011 Rosé of Syrah ($20) is sound, crisp and dry; unusual for Dry Creek Valley the 2006 Syrah ($30) displays the wild, smoky, animal-fur and oldlawn-clipping aromas of a cool-climate Syrah, with substantial tannin, in comparison to the 2007 Syrah’s ($30) juicy, claret-like berry liqueur with vanilla highlights. But that’s how it is with vintage years. You never know what you’re going to get. Amista Vineyards, 3320 Dry Creek Road, Healdsburg. Daily, 11am–4:30pm. Tasting fee, $10. 707.431.9200.

Will the doping scandal affect public interest in America’s biggest bike race? BY NICOLAS GRIZZLE

B

y now, we all know about the wreckage. In January, Lance Armstrong sat down and told Oprah Winfrey, and thereby the world, that he used illegal performance-enhancing substances to win a record seven consecutive Tour de France titles. Now disgraced, Armstrong had lived an elaborate lie for years, having apparently taken ethics classes from Professor Tiger Woods. Even LiveStrong, the cancer research foundation he founded after beating the disease, asked him to step down to avoid infection from public disgust over the scandal. Alberto Contador, Tyler Hamilton, Floyd Landis, Ivan Basso—the list of cyclists who doped goes on and on. But none hurt as much for Sonoma County as Levi Leipheimer. Just before Armstrong’s fallout, Santa Rosa’s hometown hero also admitted to years of doping— and ratted out Armstrong, his former friend, in exchange for a reduced suspension in the form of a six-month ban. (Meanwhile, Armstrong can never compete again in a professional organized race.) Leipheimer still trains in Sonoma County, taking on the hills and two-lane back roads, and his annual GranFondo ride remains a successful fundraiser—it’s raised $60,000 in each of the last two years to keep the Tour of California in Santa Rosa. But he has yet to find a team to take him in. This year, the three-time ToC winner won’t be competing in one of cycling’s biggest races, which finishes this year in his own front yard. With Santa Rosa hosting the final stage of the race, this could possibly mitigate any decrease in public interest resulting from the doping scandals. On May 19, racers will cross the final finish line downtown, the champion will don the yellow jersey, and thousands of cycling fans will

cheer on a nationally televised broadcast, as if the sport hadn’t been tarnished by a doping scandal with a trail longer than a vine of hops. At least, that’s what race organizers are predicting. “People who love bicycle racing are always going to love bicycle racing,” says Chris Coursey, a volunteer with the ToC organizing committee. “They may have anger or disappointment over revelations from the last few years, but the sport is still there. It’s still one guy riding 120 miles in almost 100-degree temperature.” Casual fans who might be turned off by steroid scandals still appreciate a good show, and “that’s what we do well here in Santa Rosa,” says Coursey. But another loss for the casual fan are all the big names. Leipheimer’s six-month ban is over, but he hasn’t found a team. Minus even more stars barred from riding, or without a team—and minus Chris Horner, who’s treating a knee injury—many major household names aren’t riding in this year’s ToC. Will it affect attendance? Already, there are fewer official team afterparties planned than in past years, but still, many cyclists seem eager to watch the grand finish. “Did Barry Bonds doping mean you stopped caring about baseball?” asks Blake Godwin,

a diehard cyclist raised in Santa Rosa. “People dope in every sport, but in that era of cycling, everybody did. I’m not making excuses, but that does change the framing.” “If you use supplemented oxygen, cocaine and Diamox to get to the top of Everest, no one would ever say you didn’t climb Everest,” says Santa Rosa cyclist

Marcos Ramirez. “These are amazing athletes, and I’m proud to have bicycle culture be so alive and well in Sonoma County. So the style and politics of racing will change. This is good.” Coursey is optimistic as well. “Levi wasn’t the first person to promote bicycling in Sonoma County,” he says, “and he ) 16 won’t be the last.”

SITTING IT OUT Tom Boonen and Levi Leipheimer at a ToC party in 2012.

Boonen, left, is recovering from a crash and isn’t riding the ToC this year, while Leipheimer, fresh off suspension, is currently without a team.

S

ince the scandal’s peak about six months ago, very few major bombshells have gone off in the cycling world. “I don’t know if there’s going to be additional reaction,” says Raissa de la Rosa, Santa Rosa economic development specialist and cochair of the local organizing committee for the ToC. “It doesn’t seem to have had an effect overall on people’s enthusiasm in cycling.” Is hosting the race still a good investment for the city? De la Rosa says yes. Santa Rosa has hosted the ToC five times, and in 2012 hosted the race’s start, with teams and ToC crewmembers calling the city home for about a week beforehand. That generated about $7 million in revenue for the city, says de la Rosa, with a total investment of about $500,000 raised through sponsorships with big companies like Ghilotti Construction and the Ratto Group, fundraising from Levi’s

GranFondo, and various in-kind donations. This year, the cost to host the ToC is approximately $300,000, and the city hopes to see $1.2 million or more in revenue. But the biggest bonus of hosting the finish is the two-hour commercial for beautiful Sonoma County, with Santa Rosa as the focal point, on NBC’s televised broadcast of the final leg of the race. “It’s huge to be the highlight city for that,” says de la Rosa. “It adds to the perception of Santa Rosa as an iconic city for the tour.” Strategically, and not without risk, the city put in only one bid for this year’s race: hosting the final stage. Last year’s race opener took an enormous amount of work. To make the efforts put in motion pay off, says de la Rosa, “the thing that made sense to us was to do the overall finish. It’s an honor.” Santa Rosa is home to two teams: BMC and Bissell. As Coursey explains, BMC is the perennial


he’s even riding a bike this year, let alone in this race,” says Coursey. (BMC’s biggest name, Cadel Evans, is riding in the Giro d’Italia, which takes place the same week as the ToC.) Despite the doping scandal and loss of big names, the ToC is pedaling on. And yet de la Rosa stops short of confirming Santa Rosa’s participation in next year’s event. “I’m more thinking about five years from now, and how we can build it up,” she says. Indeed, this year may prove to be a barometer of the public’s ability to forgive a sport in the wake of a scandal.

Tour de France contender, while Bissell has to work extra hard to be invited to compete in that race. For local fans, the absence of Leipheimer will stand out. “He’s won it three times—he’s the face of the tour,” says Coursey. “But it’s a great race without him, also.” Santa Rosa has other riders in the race, like Jeremy Vennell and Michael Torckler, the latter of whom was informed one day before the race began that he would be riding on team Bissell. Torckler came back from a horrific injury sustained in a hit-and-run accident last year on Pine Flat Road. “It’s an incredible story that

Back when cassettes ruled the world, if I really liked a song, I would record it over and over so that I could listen to it on repeat without rewinding. “I’ve Got Something I Can Laugh About,” by Bay Area indie pop band Ash Reiter, is a song that would have definitely had a cassette entirely to itself. Led by Sebastopol-bred Ash Reiter, the Berkeleybased band has exited the singer-songwriter ghetto and entered the sweet spot with their latest album, Hola, which showcases the frontwoman’s lush, swoon-worthy vocals all wrapped up in effervescent pop melodies. It might be a cliché, but this truly is a band that you want to see now, so when they hit the big time, you can say, “I knew them way back when . . .” Ash Reiter puts the pop in pop on Wednesday, May 15, at Lagunitas Tap Room. 1280 N. McDowell Ave., Petaluma. 707.778.8776.

John Cougar Concentration Camp. Brian Jonestown Massacre. Kathleen Turner Overdrive (well, this one might be fake). Reo Speeddealer. Hillbilly Idol. Furious George. Pabst Smear. And now, introducing Alpha Bitch Soup, who join a long line of bands that make naming the band into a game of puns. Hailing from Sonoma County, Soup features Artemis de Cello (formerly of the Lemon Lime Lights) and Robin Pfefer, former owner of the now-defunct Black Cat bar in Cotati. Bringing their particular mix of cello, guitar and tap dancing to the stage, Alpha Bitch Soup play with Mark Growden Duo on Saturday, May 18, at the Redwood Café. 8240 Old Redwood Hwy., Cotati. 9pm. $6–$10. 707.795.7868.

In 1990, the first Easy Rawlins mystery novel Devil in a Blue Dress joined a long line of books that take Los Angeles as its muse and antagonist. Written by Walter Mosley, the book was set in Watts, and introduced Rawlins, an African-American veteran who ends up broke and unable to find work. Eventually, Rawlins finds himself taking up detective work, and Mosley found himself with a thriving detective series. Little Green is the latest installment. It finds Rawlins navigating a new sociopolitical landscape in 1967 L.A., one permanently altered by the Watts riots and the rise of hippie culture. The book promises to be yet another clever exploration of the intersection of race, class and mystery in California’s most intriguing city. Walter Mosley appears on Thursday, May 16, at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. 7pm. 415.927.0960.

Though they may be better known for hosting Celebrity Rehab and making sexist comments about women comedians, respectively, Dr. Drew Pinsky and Adam Carolla had their start as a duo on “Loveline,” a syndicated radio show they hosted from 1995 to 2005. The two dished out frank advice on relationships and sex, covering everything from masturbation to infidelity, and lots of other topics that would only freak out sensitive ears. Personally, I stopped listening to the show back in 1993, when Jim Trenton (also known as “Poorman,” radio DJ on Los Angeles station KROQ) ended his hosting duties and was replaced by Riki Rachtman (no thanks). The Adam Carolla and Dr. Drew Reunion Tour relives the magic on Saturday, May 18, at the Uptown Theatre. 1350 Third St., Napa. 707.259.0123. $40. 7pm. 707.259.0123.

ON TOP OF THE WORLD The Mountain Play has been offering drama, revues and stellar views on Mt. Tam since 1913.

Climb Evâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ry Mountain

Mountain Play celebrates 100-year anniversary BY DAVID TEMPLETON

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;C

limb evâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ry mountain,â&#x20AC;? sings the wise and benevolent abbess in Rodgers and Hammersteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beloved musical The Sound of Music. In the Bay Area, there is only one mountain audiences need

to climb to hear the abbess perform that iconic song, following in the footsteps of local theater-seekers who have been climbing said mountain every year for an entire century. As the Mountain Play celebrates its remarkable 100th anniversary,

the majestic setting of Mt. Tamalpais and the vast Cushing Memorial Amphitheater add a bit of mountain magic of their own as veteran director Jay Manley stages The Sound of Music for its very ďŹ rst run on the mountain. This will also be Manleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst time directing this particular show, and his ďŹ rst ever time helming the Mountain Play. (James Dunn,

who served as artistic director for the past 30 years, stepped down last year after staging a successful production of The Music Man.) One might expect that Manley, who founded the Foothill Music Theater in Los Altos, could be feeling a tad nervous, taking up the mantle from a certiďŹ ed Bay Area legend such as Dunn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am deeply respectful of the amazing history of the Mountain Play, and certainly James Dunnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incalculable contribution to that history,â&#x20AC;? Manley says between rehearsals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m actually not at all intimidated to be following in his footsteps. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited.â&#x20AC;? At Foothill Music Theater, Manley staged some enormous productions, including Show Boat and Ragtime, artistically and technically demanding shows that have earned him a reputation as a bit of a theatrical giant tamer. Not that the Mountain Play doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come with a few new challenges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is certainly new for me is the opportunity to work outdoors,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The outdoor element is one of the challenges that I was most excited to tackle. At this point in my career, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very ready and eager for big challenges, and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get much bigger than the Mountain Play.â&#x20AC;? Led by Heather Buck as Maria, Susan Zelinsky as the countess and David Yen as Uncle Max, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cast is full of Mountain Play veterans, and Manley says thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a tremendous asset to an incoming director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have been so wonderfully welcoming and supportive of me,â&#x20AC;? he remarks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a moment where I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, gosh! Can I do this?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; From day one, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the opposite.â&#x20AC;? Doing this show outdoors, Manley explains, allowed him to reexamine and rethink The Sound of Music. The play, set in the Alps of Austria in the days leading up to ) 20 WWII, would seem an

Mt Play ( 19 obvious fit for Mt. Tam. But there appear to have been some solid reasons that it’s never been performed there in the 54 years since it debuted on Broadway. “It’s funny,” notes Manley, “because when you think of the movie, with Julie Andrews running along a mountaintop, you can forget that this is actually a very intimate piece. Most of it happens indoors, and there aren’t the rousing choruses of an Oklahoma or a Music Man.” Recognizing the ironic need to “open up” the play, Manley did some research, and came up with some clever solutions to the problem. One has to do with the Nonnberg Abbey, in Salzburg, Austria, where the real-life Maria von Trapp (whose memoir inspired the play) served as a Benedictine postulant before leaving the church. The abbey was founded in the early 700s. “I discovered that before the Nonnberg Abbey was established,” Manley recounts, “there was also St. Peter’s monastery, also Benedictine, and they were instrumental in setting up the Abbey. And so I got this idea that, instead of just having a chorus of nuns, how about also having a chorus of Benedictine monks? So this production will have a considerably larger chorus than one would see in a traditional production of The Sound of Music, helping to fill out the big space.” Asked how a director tackles such an intimate piece in such a vast setting, performing to literally thousands of audience members at once, Manley explains that it’s a matter of balance. “You play big—that is, you play more of the acting out toward the audience,” he says. “But also, you play it for truth. These were real people, with real emotions. If we keep it real, it will play anywhere, even in an amphitheater the size of this one. “Size,” he adds, “does not compromise truth.” ‘The Sound of Music’ runs Sundays, May 19–June 26 (and one Saturday, June 8), at the Cushing Memorial Amphitheatre. 801 Panoramic Hwy., Mill Valley. 2pm. $20–$40. 415.383.1100.

Snider), live orchestra (musical direction by Sandy and Richard Riccardi) and costumes (Pamela Enz) representing a high-water mark for the New Spreckels Theater Company. The script, by Brooks and Thomas Meehan, stays mostly faithful to the beloved 1974 film. After the death of the notorious Transylvanian monster-maker Victor Frankenstein, his estate is deeded to his grandson, Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (Tim Setzer, replacing the manic energy of Gene Wilder with a grandly deteriorating sense of nobility). After bidding farewell to his sexy but affection-phobic fiancée, Elizabeth (Denise Elia, very funny), Frederick visits his Grandfather’s creepy castle, where he’s soon surrounded by a demented troupe of Transylvanians: a humpbacked servant, Igor (the elastic-faced Jeffrey Weissman), the flirty would-be assistant Inga (Allison Rae Baker, hilarious), and the castle’s housekeeper, Frau Blücher (cue horse whinny), played to mind-boggling perfection by Mary Gannon Graham, whose smutty love-song to the late Victor (“He Was My Boyfriend”) just about killed the audience with laughter. Also very funny are John Shillington as the outrageously accented Inspector Kemp and a lonely blind hermit who prays for a friend, and Braedyn Youngberg as the monster, whom Frederick and crew eventually create, causing all sorts of problems for the locals. All of the favorite gags and lines from the film are here, from “big knockers” to “What hump?”; several (“Care for a roll in the hay?”) have been turned into big splashy songs. Frequently tasteless and packed with bad puns, campy situations and groan-inducing silliness, Young Frankenstein is a breezy resurrection of a beloved classic. Like Inspector Kemp’s artificial limbs, it doesn’t all work, but it definitely gets the job done. Rating (out of 5): ++++

CEASELESSLY INTO THE PAST Leonardo DiCaprio, too old for the role,

plays Jay Gatsby.

Not So Great, Then? Another scattered adaptation with ‘Gatsby’ BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

A

novel of riches, self-made men and the attempt to grasp a single, pure image of the past, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby has already been filmed three times for the big screen. “His determination to have my company bordered on violence,” says Nick Carraway of Tom Buchanan, and it sums up the shaping of the new Baz Luhrmann version. Luhrmann’s Gatsby will be deemed a turkey, though it’s actually a turducken—there isn’t room to stuff in any more cinematic motifs. Anachronistic music, intended to link yesteryear’s gangster to today’s, is the smallest problem with this atrocity. The soundtrack rattles you out of the era, but then the era has to be relentlessly explained to the viewer: “I hear he’s related to Kaiser Wilhelm, the evil German king,” overclarifies a flapper. A wraparound device has Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire with slicked-back hair, looking like Bewitched’s Dick York) as cracked up as Fitzgerald himself. Nick writes under the direction of a kindly therapist (Jack Thompson), and in a smart movie, this doctor could have offered some counterpoint, some of the second thoughts that make for a deathless novel instead of a Jazz Age fossil. As Daisy, Carey Mulligan adds to her Manic Pixie Dream Girl repertoire a breakthrough Depressive Pixie Dream Girl. Elizabeth Debicki’s Jordan has so little to do that she mostly stands around like a potted palm. And then there’s Gatsby himself. Leonardo DiCaprio, too old for the part, is introduced with a cloudburst of fireworks over his King Ludwig/Thomas Kincaid castle while “Rhapsody in Blue” crescendos; add in the zizzing of shooting stars à la Tinkerbell, and it’s obvious that Luhrmann thinks of Gatsby as Walt Disney. What went right here? The speed of the roadsters, dueling each other on dangerous roads. Someday, you’ll meet a lit student who’ll say, “No, but I saw the movie”—and he’ll probably think that The Great Gatsby’s moral is that it’s important not to drive like an asshole. ‘The Great Gatsby’ is in wide release.

portrait of chef Morimoto. No actual chef Morimoto. Drunk guy on Third Street offering $20 to ride your bike. Drunk woman passed out and shuttled to the medical tent. Drunk guy giving away free fourth beer because he can only hold three at a time. Drunk fans chanting shuttle driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name when he gives everyone free water for being 30 minutes late. Nighttime sign at winepouch booth: â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Drank It All!â&#x20AC;? Couple sucking face for ďŹ ve minutes during Wyatt Cenacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comedy set. Couple waltzing, ďŹ nishing with a dip to Iron & Wine. Couple ďŹ ghting near the local band stage, girl yelling, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a fucking liar!â&#x20AC;? and dropping pulledpork sandwich into the dirt. Guy picking up pulled-pork sandwich and eating it. Festival cofounder Gabe Meyers in front of the Black Keys stage, motioning to the band, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How about that?!â&#x20AC;? Festival cofounder Bob Vogt, watching Macklemore, plotting to increase staff at ID checks. Cop telling girl in line for free water, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just get some water from the spigot over there.â&#x20AC;? Different cop chewing out same girl for using the spigot. Spigot removed the next day. Lots of mud where spigot once was. Wayne Coyne from the Flaming Lips, cuddling a baby doll connected to huge laser umbilical cords. Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite, trading licks, creating eerie ambiance. Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros leading a new Jim Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; type revival. Only 26 people waiting to see Sharon Van Etten at 1pm. The Shins trying to follow Alabama Shakes. Macklemore telling everybody: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing wrong with Playstation and jacking off.â&#x20AC;? Parking on Juarez Street, sign says: â&#x20AC;&#x153;$40.â&#x20AC;? Next day, sign changed: â&#x20AC;&#x153;$50.â&#x20AC;? Residents selling sodas, water, hot dogs. Residents on the porch, passing around a 40-ounce. Tourists calling neighborhood â&#x20AC;&#x153;crackhouses.â&#x20AC;? Oxbow nearly empty at 3pm. First Street a ghost town at 10pm. Crowds waiting for shuttles. Napa Pipe looking like the apocalypse. Music wafting to be heard miles away. Cleanup crews working overtime. Tickets already on sale for next year.

Astrology

BY ROB BREZSNY

For the week of May 15

ARIES (March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19) In the alternate universe created by Marvel comic books, there is a mutant superhero called Squirrel Girl. She has the magic power to summon hordes of cute, furry squirrels. Under her guidance, they swarm all over the bad guy sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s battling and disable him with their thousands of tiny chomps and thrashing tails. She and her rodent allies have defeated such arch-villains as Dr. Doom, Deadpool, Baron Mordo and Ego the Living Planet. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s make her your role model for the coming weeks, Aries. The cumulative force of many small things will be the key to your victories. As in Squirrel Girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, your adversariesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; overconďŹ dence may also be a factor. TAURUS (April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20) You have arrived at the edge of reality. Or rather, to be precise, you have arrived at the edge of what you think of as reality. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where things could get very interesting. Just on the other side of that edge youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re brushing up against, there is much, much more realityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a vast territory you have barely imagined, let alone believed in or explored. Are you feeling brave? If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re willing to ďŹ nd out about stuff you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even realize you would love to experience, I suggest you slip across the border and wander around on the other side. GEMINI (May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20) A character in Neil Gaimanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s graphic novel A Game of You delivers this speech: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody has a secret world inside of them . . . No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all got unimaginable, magniďŹ cent, wonderful, stupid worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them.â&#x20AC;? As a Gemini, you are not, of course, dull and boring on the outside. That may have something to do with why your secret inner worlds are often even frothier and sparklier than most peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. But lately, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid, some of those secret inner worlds of yours have gotten a bit shabby and dank. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for a deep cleansing. To be thorough, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just wash your own brain. Wash your wild heart and funky soul, too. CANCER (June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22)

â&#x20AC;&#x153;You begin saving the world by saving one person at a time,â&#x20AC;? said writer Charles Bukowski. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All else is grandiose romanticism or politics.â&#x20AC;? I invite you to make that thought one of your guiding principles in the coming week, Cancerian. Translate your high ideals into actions that make a practical impact on particular human beings and animals. Instead of merely talking about what good things you want to do, actually do them. As much as possible, be sure that every detail of your daily life reďŹ&#x201A;ects your vision of ultimate truth and beauty.

LEO (July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;August 22)

If you were a ďŹ&#x201A;edgling savior, now would be a propitious moment to begin your messianic mission. If you were a musician hoping to leap to the next level of career success, this would be prime time to plan an extensive tour. If you were the inventor of the Next Big Thing, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d suggest that you get your marketing campaign in gear. And if none of those descriptions ďŹ ts your personal situation, regard them as apt metaphors for your use. How can you spread the word about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most important to you?

VIRGO (August 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;September 22) As frontman of the band Queen, Virgo singer Freddie Mercury made use of his four-octave range with ďŹ&#x201A;amboyant showmanship and breathtaking technique. Many critics regard him as one of the greatest vocalists in the history of pop music. Freddie joked that he was perfect except for one glaring ďŹ&#x201A;aw: his overbite. Because he had four extra teeth in his upper mouth, his top jaw protruded. But he chose not to alter his appearance with surgery because he suspected it might change his singing voice in unpredictable ways. Is there a comparable situation in your own life, Virgo? A socalled imperfection that seems to be entwined with a beautiful asset? I urge you to be like Freddie. Accept the paradoxâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;embrace it and celebrate itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and move on. LIBRA (September 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;October 22) The 14thcentury poet Dante was a major inďŹ&#x201A;uence on 20thcentury novelist James Joyce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love Dante,â&#x20AC;? wrote the author of the epic novel Ulysses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is my spiritual food.â&#x20AC;? And yet Joyce felt he had to absorb Dante in small doses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dante tires one quickly,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is as

if one were to look at the sun.â&#x20AC;? Is there any inďŹ&#x201A;uence like that in your own life, Libra? Judging from the astrological omens, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m guessing itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a ďŹ ne time for you to get as much sustained exposure to that glorious source as you can bear.

SCORPIO (October 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;November 21)

Greek poet Sappho was renowned in antiquity. The nine books she wrote were so esteemed that the historian Strabo wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;In this whole span of recorded time, we know of no woman to challenge her as a poet even in the slightest degree.â&#x20AC;? And yet little of Sapphoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work survives. As of 2004, there were just 264 fragments and three complete poems. But then a fourth complete poem emerged. Its text was written on papyrus that had been wrapped in the casing of an Egyptian mummy. The mummy had been stored for years in a backroom at Cologne University in Germany before someone discovered its hidden treasure. Your assignment, Scorpio, is to seek an equivalent recovery. Search for a part of the past thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still beautiful and useful, even if that quest leads you to unlikely and obscure places.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;December 21) When I turn my psychic attention in your direction, I smell smoldering smoke. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how I interpret that: Your internal ďŹ re is burning with less than maximum efďŹ ciency. Do you agree, Sagittarius? If so, do you know why that might be? Did you not provide enough kindling? Is the wood too green? Is the ground wet? I urge you to ďŹ nd out what the problem is. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to have sputtering ďŹ&#x201A;ames and sooty light and spotty warmth. You need a steady blaze that radiates brilliant light and strong heat. CAPRICORN (December 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;January 19) Very few of us are completely uninhibited about expressing who we really are. Most everyone is shy about revealing at least one facet of his or her identity. Why? Maybe because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re afraid that people will judge us harshly for being different from what they think we should be. Or maybe our secret side is at odds with our self-image, and we hesitate to acknowledge it even to ourselves. What is this part of you, Capricorn? In what sense are you still in the closet about a truth or quality or event thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s central to your character? I urge you to have a conversation with yourself about it. You arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily ready to tell the whole world about it, but now might be the right time to start considering the possibility that you can give it more room to play. AQUARIUS (January 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;February 18)

I absolutely forbid you to be a slave of happiness, a victim of pleasure or a prisoner of love. Wait. Sorry. I take that back. What gives me the right to forbid you from doing anything? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your life. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the boss. So let me reframe my previous advice. Dear Aquarius, I beg you not to be a slave of happiness, a victim of pleasure or a prisoner of love. None of the good things in life will give you what you need if you make yourself crazy or sick while pursuing them. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the cautionary news. The encouraging news is that in the next ďŹ ve weeks, I think you will have a knack for cultivating a graceful relationship with happiness, pleasure and love.

PISCES (February 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20)

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be like the ducks that are ďŹ&#x201A;oating on Phoenix Lake a short distance from where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sitting. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeding entirely on the surface, happy to skim a few insects from the top of the placid waters theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re drifting on. No, Pisces, be more like the frogs that are diving to probe for morsels down below. This is a phase of your astrological cycle when the quest for more variety can deepen your perspective and provide better nourishment.
