Rhapsodies Learning from Kern-Dog What a pet can teach us about love BY JACK IRVING

I

’ve lost track of the number of times that Kern-Dog has gone to visit the vet over the years; today, the vet came to visit him.

We did it on the grass in Karen’s yard, the place where Kern-Dog had spent countless hours laying in the sun, chasing squirrels, stalking gophers in the flower beds and, on one memorable occasion, getting his butt kicked by the neighborhood raccoon. He was his adorable self to the very end—he lifted his head and almost (but not quite) kissed the vet’s hand, even though he had barely lifted his head in days. Soon the deed was done, and for the first time in 19 years there was nothing left for us to do. We needed to get out the house—that house that had been Kern’s kingdom for so many years—so we went to Fradelizio’s for an early dinner. As we sat reminiscing, I realized that Kern had probably been as much a part of our town as many people I know. When I used to play music at Fradelizio’s, I would bring him in after closing time so that he could canvas the dining room floor for stray edibles while I packed away my guitars. He was more than willing to oblige, and I’m sure that it made the job of vacuuming the floors that much easier. He’d been into all of the Fairfax bars countless times back in the day, and for a while there he practically lived on the doggie treats from Fairfax Lumber. Many is the night that Karen would furrow her brow in motherly concern because Kern had barely touched his real dinner. Hmmmm, I wonder why? It’s been said so often now as to become cliché, but what if we could all learn to love with the selfless devotion and reckless abandon of the beloved family dog? To love unconditionally and without limits, without fear of judgment or rejection, to love not for what we hope to get in return but for the sake of love itself? Jack Irving lives in Fairfax.

DIANE GLEIM, MFT Santa Rosa

Israel’s War in Gaza Over the weekend, the New York Times sent out a clear signal: the mass slaughter of civilians is acceptable when the Israeli military is doing the killing. Under the headline “Israel’s War in Gaza,” the most powerful newspaper in the United States editorialized that such carnage is necessary. The lead editorial in the July 19 edition flashed a bright green light—reassuring the U.S. and Israeli governments that the horrors being inflicted in Gaza were not too horrible. From its first words, the editorial methodically set out to justify what Israel was doing: “After 10 days of aerial bombardment, Israel sent tanks and ground troops into Gaza to keep Hamas from pummeling Israeli cities with rockets and carrying out terrorist attacks via underground tunnels.” The choice of when to date the start of the crisis was part of the methodical detour around inconvenient facts. For instance, no mention of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s June 30 announcement that the “human animals” of Hamas would “pay” after three Israeli teenagers kidnapped in Israelicontrolled territory in the West Bank were found dead. No mention of the absence of evidence that Hamas leadership was involved in those murders.

Likewise, absent from the editorializing sequence was Israel’s June “crackdown” in the West Bank, with home raids, area closures and imprisonment of hundreds of Hamas party activists including legislators.

Most of all, the vile core of the Times editorial was its devaluation of Palestinian lives in sharp contrast to Israeli lives. The Times editorial declared that Hamas leaders “deserve condemnation” for military actions from civilian areas in the dense Gaza enclave—but Netanyahu merited mere expressions of “concern” about “further escalation.” Absent from the editorial was any criticism of Israel’s ongoing bombardment of homes, apartment blocks, hospitals, beaches and other civilian areas with U.S.-supplied ordnance. At the time, there had been one Israeli death from the hostilities—and at least 260 deaths among Gazans as well as injuries in the thousands. The contrast illuminates a grotesque difference in the Times’ willingness to truly value the humanity of Israelis and Palestinians. In the morally skewed universe that the Times editorial board evidently inhabits and eagerly promulgates, Hamas intends to “terrorize” Israeli citizens while Israel merely intends to accomplish military objectives by dropping thousand of tons of bombs on Palestinian people in Gaza. A keynote of the editorial came when it proclaimed, “There was no way Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was going to tolerate the Hamas bombardments, which are indiscriminately lobbed at Israeli population centers. Nor should he.” While sprinkling in a handwringing couple of phrases about dead and wounded civilians, the editorial had nothing to say in condemnation of the Israeli force killing and maiming them in large numbers. Between the lines was a tacit message to Israel: Kill more. It’s OK. Kill more.

By Tom Tomorrow

Fine Dining For Wild Birds The night after the Times editorial went to press, the killing escalated. Among the calamities: the Israeli military shelled the Gaza neighborhood of Shejaiya throughout the night with nonstop tank fire that allowed no emergency services to approach. Eyewitness media reports from Shejaiya recounted scenes of “absolute devastation” with bodies strewn in the streets and the ruins. The Times editorial was in step with President Obama, who said—apparently without intended irony—that “no country can accept rockets fired indiscriminately at citizens.” Later, matching Israeli rationales for a ground invasion, the president amended his verbiage by saying, “No nation should accept rockets being fired into its borders or terrorists tunneling into its territory.” By the lights of the Oval Office and the New York Times editorial boardroom, lofty rhetoric aside, the proper role of

Palestinian people is to be slaughtered into submission.

THE

Paper

DEBR IEFER Path to Citizenship Among entries on a long list of the $2.4 million in 2014 Napa Valley Community Foundation grants, one figure stands out: a $295,000 grant for a Napa County citizenship program established by the foundation. “This is the largest discretionary grant we made this year,” says Terence Mulligan, president of the foundation. The grant will help 2,000 legal permanent residents in Napa County apply for citizenship. The foundation commissioned a study in 2012 from the Migration Policy Institute in Washington, D.C., which reported that immigration to Napa County had sharply dropped in recent years. The report found that that 24 percent of Napa County residents were born outside the country (California as a whole is 27 percent), and that the 9,000 legal permanent residents added about $1 billion to the annual economy.

WATER MISERS North Bay winegrowers believe new rules are unjustified, since grapes use less water than annual crops.

Of Water and Wine North Bay winegrowers face state oversight BY TOM GOGOLA

I

t’s been a good year for Sonoma and Napa county vineyards. While Central Valley farmers saw 410,000 acres go fallow because of the lack of water, North Bay grapegrowers benefited from well-timed spring rain, moderate temperatures and critical groundwater resources. But as the grape crop ripens, the

North Bay faces a state push to monitor and manage agriculture’s groundwater pumps, which winegrowers see as unnecessary. Gov. Jerry Brown’s all-fronts fight against the drought already ranges froma $500 fine for failing to use a hose nozzle to a proposed $25 billion twin delta-tunnel project. Now the state will burrow into local water agencies’ business under bills from Assemblyman Roger Dickinson and Sen. Fran Pavley.

Under their proposals, localities would develop water-basin sustainability plans with the assistance of, and approval from, the state. Pump stations would be state-monitored and subject to takeover for water-use violations. The Association of California Water Agencies, which represents the interests of state water agencies, supports the bill, with amendments under negotiation that would clarify what happens when a local water district ) 10

There is an influx of Filipino immigrants to American Canyon, the reported noted, but Mexicans remain the dominant immigrant group, and the backbone of the ag economy. Seventy percent of that workforce comes from Mexico. The Migration Policy Institute found that Napa County Latino men are overrepresented in the workforce, which is to say that unemployment rates are low among working age Mexican men. Those immigrants have tried to step up the economic ladder only to find the citizenship ceiling. The study found that “many immigrants in Napa County are eligible to become citizens, but they haven’t done so nearly as frequently as their peers around the state.” Enter the citizenship initiative. Last year the foundation distributed ) 10 The Bohemian started as The Paper in 1978.

is unable to manage its water supply. The wine industry is leery of the bills. “Both have different language that is more burdensome to ag in general, that we are very cautious about,” says Garrett Buckland, vice president of the Napa Valley Grapegrowers, an organization of Napa County viniculturalists and wine-related businesses. “We have good [water] resources,” he says. “We have a great monitoring system, and we have a wonderful county system that emphasizes sustainable water use. We feel that local control of these resources is better than statewide control.” But Nancy Vogel, a spokeswoman for the California Department of Water Resources, says greater oversight is warranted. “We need better technical information,” she says, “and we need the authority to restrict pumping. That doesn’t exist in the law.” She insists the state will defer to locals. “The state can step in, but the authority is well-defined—and we also count first on the locals to manage the resource, because they know best their basins.” Buckland is sympathetic to the plight of fellow farmers in the Central Valley but says it’s not fair to lump the North Bay with more water intensive farms elsewhere in the state. “One size does not fit all,” says Buckland. “We do not receive state water for ag irrigation in general. We get no water from the [Sacramento River] Delta or the North Bay Aqueduct—just water that falls within the county or surface water that’s fallen in the county.” The soil holds water in the North Bay “like a reservoir,” says Buckland. “Someone who is planting annuals, they can’t fall back on that. If they don’t have water coming to them, they might just be out of luck.” The grape is second only to cacti in self-regulation, he says. “The same vineyard ground could double [the water] or half the water and still have a crop,” says Buckland. If only the state were so efficient.

To meet a 6.6-million-acre-feet rainwater shortage, the state spent $447 million this year to pump 5.5 million acre-feet of groundwater. “Agriculture as a whole got hit hard,” says Vogel, who adds that the state sent some water contractors only 5 percent of their typical allocation. “That’s why they are leaning on groundwater so hard,” Vogel says.

The wine industry is leery of two new watermonitoring bills. The drought has cost the state $2.2 billion, and will cost another $2 billion over the next two years, according to a July 15 UC Davis report. Most of the pain was felt outside the North Bay. Coastal farms and Southern California fared well compared to the Central Valley, with 19,000 acres left fallow for lack of water. Those areas saw $10 million in lost revenue and $6.3 million in additional pumping costs; the state as a whole spent $447 million on groundwater pumping. As the costs mounted, Brown asked Californians to voluntarily reduce usage by 20 percent. Instead it went up 1 percent. Now Lady Gaga has taken up the call to conserve with state PSAs, and there are new fines for residential water wasters. Buckland says grapegrowers are already zeroed-in on conservation. The grapegrowers group sponsors viniculture workshops where farmers are encouraged to utilize heartier rootstock, cultivate water-absorbing soil, keep vines trimmed and the rows clear—and closely monitor water intake. “With more information comes more assurances that I can go two or three weeks without watering,” says Buckland.

approximately $285,000 for this same purpose, says Mulligan. Mulligan says in its first year the program has helped more than 500 residents with legal assistance or classroom help. One hundred and sixty-five people have submitted citizenship applications. “Sixty-five people have actually become U.S. citizens,” he says. —Tom Gogola

Lopez Park? Nine months after 13-year-old Andy Lopez was shot at the corner of Moorland and West Robles avenues, just south of Santa Rosa, Sonoma County officials have announced receipt of a state $471,000 grant to turn the site into a county park. The park might be completed by early 2016, says county parks deputy director Jim Nantell. Sonoma County officials will rely on community input for guidance on what to build, he says. “We figure there would be some kind of multi-use field; we anticipate a playground, some various picnic areas,” he says. The site is currently home to a makeshift memorial for Lopez, whose killer, Sonoma County sheriff’s deputy Erick Gelhaus, was exonerated by Sonoma County District Attorney Jill Ravitch earlier this month. The county hopes to transform a oneacre parcel and a larger lot across the street for this underserved part of the county. The nearest park is two miles away. The land hasn’t been purchased yet, but county spokesman Peter Rumble says the state grant shows that “we’re not just paying lip service to this.” County officials need at least another $1 million to finance the park, and a round of property appraisals, public meetings and approval from the board of supervisors are on the agenda before any construction begins. —Nicolas Grizzle

ON FIRE In addition to a larger dining room and new bar, K&L Bistro’s kitchen expanded as well.

Bigger & Better K&L Bistro reinvents itself

K

&L Bistro didn’t just triple in size; it tripled its appeal. The Sebastopol restaurant reopened in May after an extensive remodel that upped its footprint to 3,200 square feet. The old K&L was a beloved restaurant, but let’s be frank: it was cramped and got stuffy and noisy when it was crowded, which was often. But now there’s room to enjoy a meal without someone’s

chair bumping into yours. The kitchen is bigger now, too. The old dining room has become a lounge boasting a long and beautiful copper-topped bar with an oyster-shucking station at the end. The bar is not only a beauty, it’s loaded with a great selection of lesser-known booze. I’m a fan of mescal, and it’s great to see a few choices here. Fidencio mescal goes into La Palabra ($10), a cocktail made with housemade habañero simple syrup and chocolate bitters. The lineup of craft brews on

tap is worth a stop too. If it’s still available, check out Galaxy, a white IPA from Anchorage Brewing made with a touch of brettanomyces and subtle hints of kumquat, cumin and white pepper. It’s a very food-friendly brew. Complementing the new bar is an eclectic bar menu that breaks from the Mediterranean-leaning lunch and dinner menus. Look for the taco of the day ($3), Korean fried chicken ($8), a kimchi-topped hotdog ($7), chicken liver mousse ($10.50) and even steamed pork buns ($8). The handsome bar, deep list of

libations and food menu have made the restaurant into the nighttime hotspot it never was, though its menu of bistro classics remains the same. There are no fancy foams or postmodern deconstructions on a plate here—just a menu of dependable standards that succeed on the basis of quality of ingredients and execution. You’ve no doubt had French onion soup gratinée before, but K&L’s ($10) might as well serve as the gold standard. The beef broth contains a depth of flavor that only comes from slow-roasted bones and hours of slow bubbling in a large stock pot. It’s as good as it gets. When I reviewed K&L two years ago, I loved the simplicity of the sole meunière ($23.50), and it’s just as good today. Consistency can be hard to achieve with cooks coming and going, but this dish is a testament to co-owner Lucas Martin’s training of his staff. The impeccably fresh fish comes from Bodega Bay. The basic white-wine and butter sauce lets the sweetness of the fish shine. The house-cured Monterey Bay sardines ($11.50) are another dish I remember fondly last time that was just as good this time around. K&L is also known for it boudin blanc sausage ($21), and for good reason. The aromatic, juicy sausages are wonderfully flavorful, but what got me is their light, cut-with-afork delicacy. The accompanying apple endive salad and crisp fries round out this local favorite. While it’s a far cry from traditional, the watermelon and pork belly salad ($11.50) is a good addition to the menu. The refreshing sweetness of the melon is a great foil to the meaty chunks of pan-fried pork belly. A star anise vinaigrette and spicy pepitas complete the frolic of flavors. I wish there was a better list of wines by the glass. Better are the wines by the bottle, which include a few hard-to-get local standouts like Radio Coteau and Littorai. Bigger isn’t always better, but with the new K&L, it is. K&L Bistro 119 S. Main St., Sebastopol. 707.823.6614.

SMALL BITES

Chewy Tea Take a tasty, sweet iced tea with milk and throw a bunch of chewy, dark, mostly flavorless tapioca balls in the bottom of it, serve it with a huge straw and watch the balls shoot up into your mouth like a pneumatic tube system. Yes, boba is weird. But it’s strangely addicting. Bubble milk tea, as it’s also known, is wildly popular in the Asian community, which is why it’s surprising to see a boba cafe pop up in Rohnert Park, a city not known for its diversity. The owners of Tea Rex say they opened it because they were “tired of driving an hour for boba,” since their closest options are in the East Bay or San Francisco. So last year they opened a place themselves. The vibe of the cafe is youthful, with a green and purple color scheme and weapon-wearing dinosaurs reminiscent of the 1980s cartoon series Dino Riders. Drinks include sweet fruity options, like honeydew and kiwi, to jasmine milk tea and iced coffee, each with a variety of boba available. There’s food too. The Vietnamese bahn mi sandwiches are hearty, packing enough calories to feed two people for less than $5. Consider the meat bahn mi: head cheese, rich pâté, mayo and pickled veggies on a big, flaky soft roll. If the head cheese and pâté combination isn’t for you, there’s a vegetarian option as well. Best bet for snackage may be the fresh waffles—a wonderful accompaniment to the sweet, strange, deliciously chewy tea. Tea Rex is located at 1 Padre Parkway, Ste. E, Rohnert Park.—Nicolas Grizzle

Geyser Peak Winery In the 1990s, the facility was in thrall to Australian overlords the Penfolds, who brought in winemakers Daryl Groom and Mick Shroeter.

John Tyler Wines For decades, the Bacigalupis have been selling prized grapes to the likes of Chateau Montelena and Williams Selyem.

Want Cab Franc with That? Small-plate food pairings that will amuse your bouche BY JAMES KNIGHT

N

ext time you go winetasting, consider this sillysimple insight: wineries are in the business of selling wine, not raking in tasting fees, or even charging extra for a tour and gourmet food pairing—which is why increasingly popular small-plate food pairing experiences may actually maximize your bang per banknote.

Whether you’re on a date, entertaining visitors or just getting out of the house, the big pours, multiple stems and quality bites are almost a loss-leader in your favor. Here are four top choices: J Vineyards On Swirl’s last visit, we lounged on cushions in the Bubble Room, lapping up roasted cauliflower soup and forkfuls of crab cakes, pork medallions with rutabaga, braised veal cheeks, plus cheese course and dessert (menu changes seasonally; $75). Since then, J Vineyards has added a Terrace Tasting ($45) with tapas or cheese plate: Bellwether pepato, baby, Pennyroyal Boont Corners—no cheap stuff. By the way, if J Cuvée 20 ($28) seems too sweet, lay the new J Cuvée XB Extra Brut ($45) on your palate. Tastes like a grapefruit razor slicing a toasty, custard tart. Sparkling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. 11447 Old Redwood Hwy., Healdsburg. 707.431.3646. Ram’s Gate It was too good to be true: fireplaces blazing at midday, food and wine available to all, credit card on the barrelhead. Since our last visit, this Carneros hotspot has thinned the flock: the à la carte menu has been ditched, and appointments will be required after Sept. 1. But arrange for an estate tour and Palate Play ($60), and enjoy petite but nicely executed bites like fried game hen with Fuji apple slaw and duck cassoulet with huckleberries. A variety of wines. 28700 Arnold Drive, Sonoma. 707.721.8700. Lambert Bridge Those chandeliers in the redwood-paneled barrel room were begging to light something, like new bistro table service featuring butternut squash soup with pepper pork and pomegranate sauce. Not a gut-buster, but cozy atmosphere and a good price ($45). Chard, Zin, Cab and Cab Franc. 4085 W. Dry Creek Road, Healdsburg. 707.431.9600. Jordan Jordan’s new estate tour and tasting ($120) takes you through rugged cattle country—Wagyu cattle included—and vineyards in the comfort of a somewhat incongruous luxury bus. But the boxed-treat pitstops by the lake and at the top of the hill, in a sleek gazebo overlooking Alexander Valley, are high style. Chard and Cab. 1474 Alexander Valley Road, Healdsburg. 800.654.1213.

CULTURE

The week’s events: a selective guide

M I L L VA L L E Y

Americana Swing The L.A.-based roots jazz ensemble the Dustbowl Revival have played massive festivals across the country and shared the stage with legends like the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The “Americana-meets-dancehall-meets-gospel” that the eight-piece collective belts out is invigorating, and in preparation for recording their first live album in San Francisco, the Dustbowl Revival storms the stage on Thursday, July 24, at Sweetwater Music Hall, 19 Corte Madera Ave., Mill Valley. 8pm. $12–$15. 415.388.3850.

O C C I D E N TA L

Storied Revue Before the radio, before the automobile, storytellers and musicians toured the country spreading entertainment and education in Chautauqua Revue variety shows. Named for the Chautauqua Lake where the summer tradition originated, the revues played to an estimated 45 million Americans in towns and rural areas throughout the United States during the early days of the 20th century. In Occidental, the community gathering is still going strong, and this year’s show boasts a variety of entertainment and storytelling, featuring tales to make you laugh and make you think. The Chautauqua Revue happens on Friday, July 25, at the Occidental Arts & Ecology Center’s outdoor theater, 15290 Coleman Valley Road, Occidental. 7:30pm. $10–$20. 707.874.1557.

CORTE MADERA

Art Imitates Life One of the most intriguing real-life spy stories of the last decade is the case of CIA operative Valerie Plame, whose cover was blown in a Washington Post article as retribution for an op-ed piece her husband wrote that refuted Bush administration claims regarding Iraq. Plame’s career with the CIA ended in turmoil, yet now the betrayed spy has returned with a new career—as a spy novelist, naturally. Her first novel, Blowback, follows a Plame-esque operative, and the true-tolife details add to the thrills. This week, Plame appears in conversation with author and KGO radio host Brian Copeland, discussing her new novel on Friday, July 25, at Book Passage, 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. 7pm. 415.927.0960.

KENWOOD

This week, the documentary screens at the Kenwood Restaurant as part of a benefit for the Wine Country Film Festival. Before the film, there’s a reception, silent auction and special dinner menu available. Garden in the Sea screens on Sunday, July 27, at the Kenwood Restaurant, 9900 Sonoma Hwy., Kenwood. 5pm. $20; $75, includes dinner. 707.935.3456.

BARD RAISING How hard could staging a play amid old ruins be? Turns out it’s a real battle.

Amid the Ruins

Shakespeare in the Cannery brings new life to old walls BY CHARLIE SWANSON

I

t was already getting dark, and the big auger drill was having difficulty digging into the hard-packed dirt. Above, the stars began shining though the black night.

In the background, work lights powered by a small generator illuminated two massive

brick walls, all that remains of California Packing Company Plant No. 5. on West Third Street in Santa Rosa’s Railroad Square district. As the ground fought back against the foot-and-ahalf-wide drill, David Lear asked himself the question he’s been asking for a year now. “What have we gotten ourselves into?” Those walls have long held a

fascination for Lear. “I’ve always had my eye on the cannery,” says the director, who has worked with Cinnabar Theater and 6th Street Playhouse, and most recently directed plays at Ives Park in Sebastopol. His vision for the old building was an annual outdoor theater festival called Shakespeare in the Cannery. While having a cup of coffee at Flying Goat nearby last

year, he looked over the railroad tracks and thought, “It’s time.” That’s when Lear shared his idea with Martin Hamilton, director of the nearby Arlene Francis Center. Hamilton’s a dedicated community activist working to make Railroad Square a cultural center. When Lear mentioned his idea of turning the vacant land down the road into a theater, Hamilton’s eyes lit up at the prospect. “I think I just said, ‘We’ll do it,’” recalls Hamilton. The two formed a partnership. But they needed help. Chris Costin has practiced law in Sonoma County for 30 years, often in issues of land use and real estate. He is also a champion of the local theater scene and a former board member at 6th Street Playhouse, and his offices happen to be in Railroad Square. When Lear and Hamilton approached him for help, he naturally signed on. The cannery was built in 1917 in the heart of the town’s Little Italy district. At its height in the 1920s, the three-block-long building employed dozens of workers, mostly women. They canned crops from all over the area before the goods were sent by rail across the state. The company relocated in 1928 and the building closed for good in in 1932. The city has struggled on what to do with crumbling space ever since. The landowner, San Francisco developer John Stewart, whose own plans recently fell through, generously gave the group a free two-year lease for the space. The Santa Rosa City Council voiced its support when they heard the idea. All Lear, Hamilton and Costin had to do was get the permits. They took their plans to the planning department, and confidently put in a request for a temporary land-use permit back in April. It was promptly denied. The city had concerns about safety. The plan had to ) 35

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My mantra is, if you believe in something, nothing stops it except you. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to stop it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; About 45 minutes into the meeting, Setterland suggested they all meet on site, to see what they could do. With extensive revisions to the proposal in place, the city issued a permit to start building a theater space. Suddenly, Shakespeare in the Cannery was a go. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the real work began. Those holes the auger was drilling late into the night were subsequently ďŹ lled with concrete to hold lighting poles in place throughout the space. A solar-powered generator was specially developed to power the lights. Debris by the dump-truck load was removed. Architects and structural engineers were brought in. Contractors built a massive, three-tier stage. Hundreds of feet of fencing was erected to keep crowds a required 40 feet away from the walls. Visitors will walk from the entrance on Sixth Street at the Playhouse, past a rusted water tower, to the open-air stage now centered on a ďŹ eld located within the walls.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Romeo and Julietâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; plays Friday and Saturday nights though Aug. 23 at 3 West Third St. Santa Rosa. Doors open at 6pm for picnicking and refreshments. Shows are at 8pm. $25 with a $5 discount for those coming by bike. More info at http://shakespeareinthecannery.com.

be totally reworked. Lear was devastated. He thought he had lost his dream before it had even begun. Yet the next week, Costin came back with revised ideas and the group met again with Santa Rosa chief building official Mark Setterland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for Chris [Costin], weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be dead in the water,â&#x20AC;? says Lear.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing has been a smooth ride. We solve one problem and it becomes another problem, and we just keep solving them,â&#x20AC;? says Lear, a week from the theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This thing got away from us. It said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You created me, now keep up with me.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; But my mantra is, if you believe in something, nothing stops it except you. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to stop it.â&#x20AC;? Shakespeare in the Canneryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural performance is Romeo and Juliet. Donations from the city council, the county, local businesses and personal investors have kept the project going. Hamilton says donations have totaled about $20,000, slightly less than half of current costs. When opening night, July 18, ďŹ nally came last weekend, Setterland and the city signed off on the permits and approved the event only an hour before doors opened for the ďŹ rst performance. As the crowds watched from blankets and chairs on the lawn, and the sun dipped away in the background while swords clattered and star-crossed lovers danced, Learâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision became real. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been so ďŹ xated on the minutiae, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the big picture,â&#x20AC;? says Lear. After the premiere weekend, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still trying to put it all into perspective. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honestly, it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really sunk in yet. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very proud of everyone. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very happy.â&#x20AC;? For Hamilton, the success of Shakespeare in the Cannery signals the potential for Railroad Square. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to think about what will be here when the Smart Train comes though,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the theater district now.â&#x20AC;? Costin also points out that there are no other major venues in Sonoma County on the forthcoming trainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s route, and he hopes the cannery becomes a cultural destination, not only for the local community but for the entire North Bay and beyond.

he superb French biopic Violette by Martin Provost (who did the similarly ďŹ ne Seraphine) isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about just another pretty face.

Violette Leduc, a maudite writer whose work attracted the respect of contemporaries such as Camus and Jean Genet, poured her yearning to be loved into surprisingly hard-nosed yet erotic books. Loneliness, the Nazi occupation and constant poverty failed to crush this inconvenient, sexually ambidextrous author. Remembered as the writer of a lesbian classic, Therese and Isabelle, Leduc snaps at someone taking her for gay: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just women!â&#x20AC;? Emmanuelle Devosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Leduc is one of the best performances of the year. While teachers in script class always remind you that a character needs to want something, a character can also be a whimperer if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re too needy. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the case with Devos, who captures the hard-bitten side, the bitter humor and the yearnings of her subject: one of those unfortunates drawn to men who were gay and women who werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Principle among these crushes was writer Simone de Beauvoir. Sandrine Kiberlain gives the noted philosopher all due frost, simultaneously mentoring Leduc and holding her at armâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s length. Leduc was in many ways a robust country girl, and she spent her later days in a remote hill-town village. But Violette is a revelatory ďŹ lm about Paris, with concentrated passages of costumed, decorated richness; from Leducâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s room, with the city cleared of cars and snowed-in, it looks like the Medieval fortress it once was. Leduc once wrote that she committed a mortal sin by living as a woman not interested in â&#x20AC;&#x153;being beautiful.â&#x20AC;? Leducâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experiences might have more to offer beautiful young women who feel that feminism is irrelevant in their case.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Violetteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is playing at Summerfield Cinemas, 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.522.0719.

n many ways, X put L.A. punk on the map. Formed in 1977, X found critical and cult success with a succession of acclaimed records. Nearly 40 years later, founding membersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;vocalist Exene Cervenka, vocalist and bassist John Doe, guitarist Billy Zoom and drummer DJ Bonebrakeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;still share the stage as X, and this year ďŹ nds them reworking older material and playing through classic albums like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never done before. Drummer DJ Bonebrake spoke with the Bohemian about the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longevity and their slate of new shows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess we were just meant to be a band,â&#x20AC;? says Bonebrake, who joined the group last, after Doe and

Zoom saw him playing in another L.A. punk outďŹ t, the Eyes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We somehow share an artistic vision, and we like what we do. When we play onstage, it can be absolutely magical, so we keep doing it.â&#x20AC;? Bonebrake acknowledges that it took the group a little while to learn to play live, but he was immediately hooked on his fellow members poetic lyricism and distinct sound, which carried a heavy dose of rockabilly within their loud and fast approach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stuck in one style. They werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afraid to do something that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t considered punk rock.â&#x20AC;? In the early 1980s, X released a number of highly inďŹ&#x201A;uential records, beginning with their debut, Los Angeles. Eventually, the band experienced the inevitable hiatus, when Zoom left the group and Doe and Cervenka started side projects. Yet the group has been together and touring semiregularly since reuniting in the late 1990s. This year, the band has changed up their standard live dynamic. Earlier this month, X performed all four of their ďŹ rst albums over four consecutive nights in Los Angeles, a feat that will be repeated in New York, Chicago and Cleveland later this year. For their show at Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s City Winery Saturday, July 26, the group is going in a new direction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost acoustic, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quieter. We wanted to rock out at times. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to make it real campy, like Shatner reading poetry,â&#x20AC;? laughs Bonebrake. X will also be performing songs they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played for 30 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come Back to Me,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bad Thoughtsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Unheard Musicâ&#x20AC;? are all classic tracks that will take on new, ethereal sounds, and the members will be switching instruments throughout, with Doe taking up sax and Bonebrake on vibraphones. Bonebrake is inspired by the current change-ups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anytime you do something new, it excites you, it makes you play better. I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a good thing.â&#x20AC;? X perform on Saturday, July 26, at City Winery Napa, 1030 Main St., Napa. 8pm. $45â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$55. 707.226.7372.

Far Out Marin’s favorite fest returns Surrounded by Tomales Bay, picturesque Love Field in Point Reyes Station is once again the home of Marin’s popular music festival and community benefit, the ninth annual Far West Fest. In the last decade, the festival has raised more than a quarter of a million dollars for local community causes, and this year’s event again combines live music, artisan foods and local crafts. The afternoon of July 26 will see multiple stages of entertainment and activities for all ages. The North Bay Hootenanny, with a stage highlighting local roots and folk acts, joins the fest this year featuring San-Francisco-byway-of-New-Orleans headliners the Honey Island Swamp Band. Another popular S.F. staple appearing is New Monsoon, the jamrock band that finds influence in everything from jazz to funk to classic rock. Other bands making their way to Love Field include LoCura, the Flamenco Cuban reggae outfit and the Grateful Bluegrass Boys playing with members of Hot Buttered Rum. Winetasting, oysters and a kids’ zone are also on-hand, and once again the fest stresses its environmentally responsible and community-focused practices, leaving nothing on the field but footsteps. The Far West Fest takes place on Saturday, July 26, at Love Field, Route 1, Point Reyes Station. 10am to 7pm. $20–$25 general admission; $75 VIP. Farwestfest.org. —Charlie Swanson

Astrology

BY ROB BREZSNY

For the week of July 23

ARIES (March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19) A report in the prestigious British medical journal BMJ says that almost 1 percent of young pregnant women in the United States claim to be virgins. They testify that they have conceived a fetus without the beneďŹ t of sex. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible, right? Technically, yes. But if there could ever be a loophole in natural law, it would happen for you Aries sometime in the coming weeks. You will be so exceptionally fertile, so prone to hatching new life, that almost anything could incite germination. A vivid dream or captivating idea or thrilling adventure or exotic encounter might be enough to do the trick. TAURUS (April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20)

As you weave your way through the next chapter of your story, I suggest you take inspiration from the turtle. You may even want to imagine that the turtle is your animal ally, a guide that helps you access the gradual and deliberate kind of intelligence you will need. Moving quickly will not be appropriate for the leisurely lessons that are coming your way. The point is to be deep and thorough about a few things rather than half-knowledgeable about a lot of things. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one other turtle-like quality I hope you will cultivate, too: the ability to feel at home wherever you are.

GEMINI (May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20) Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest winery is E.&J. Gallo. It sells more wine than any other company, and has been named the planetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most Powerful Wine Brandâ&#x20AC;? four different years. Ernest and Julio Gallo launched the enterprise in 1933 after studying the art of winemaking in pamphlets they found in the basement of a public library in Modesto, Calif. I foresee a less spectacular but metaphorically similar arc for you, Gemini. Sometime soonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;maybe it has already happenedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;information or inspiration you come across in a modest setting will launch you on the path to future success. There is one caveat: You must take seriously the spark you encounter, and not underestimate it because it appears in humble circumstances. CANCER (June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22)

Diamonds are not rare. They are so numerous that if they were evenly distributed, you and me and everyone else on the planet could each have a cupful of them. And if you are ever in your lifetime going to get your personal cupful, it may happen in the next 11 months. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because your hard work and special talent are more likely than usual to be rewarded with tangible assets. Strokes of luck will tend to manifest in the form of money and treasure and valuable things you can really use. Be alert for the clues, Cancerian. One may appear momentarily.

LEO (July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;August 22) According to the legends about Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table, the boy who would ultimately become King Arthur didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know he was heir to the throne while he was growing up. His future destiny was hidden from him. The wizard Merlin trained him but made sure he never found out he was special. When the old king Uther Pendragon died, a tournament was staged to ďŹ nd a replacement. The winner would be whoever was able to withdraw the enchanted sword that was embedded in a large stone. Quite by accident, our hero got a chance to make an attempt. Success! I have reminded you of the broad outlines of this tale, Leo, because at least one of its elements resembles your destiny in the next 11 months. VIRGO (August 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;September 22) When a crocodile slams its jaws shut, the energy it summons is powerful. But when the beast opens its jaws, the force it exerts is weak. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the muscles used to close are much more robust than the muscles used to open. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wondering if an analogous story might be told about you these days, Virgo. Are you more prone to close down than to open up? Is it easier for you to resist, avoid and say no than it is to be receptive, extend a welcome and say yes? If so, please consider cultivating a better balance. You need both capacities running at full strength in the coming days. LIBRA (September 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;October 22) In the latter part of the 18th century, American rebels and rabblerousers used to gather regularly in the basement of the Green Dragon Tavern in Boston. There they plotted the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ride and other dissident

adventures that opposed British Rule. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the Green Dragon became known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Headquarters of the Revolution.â&#x20AC;? I think you and your cohorts need a place like that, Libra. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high time for you to scheme and dream about taking coordinated actions that will spur teamwork and foster liberation.

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

â&#x20AC;&#x153;When one has not had a good father, one must create one,â&#x20AC;? said philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. What does that mean? How might you go about â&#x20AC;&#x153;creatingâ&#x20AC;? a good father? Well, you could develop a relationship with an admirable older man who is an inspiring role model. You could read books by men whose work stirs you to actualize your own potential. If you have a vigorous inner life, you could build a fantasy dad in your imagination. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another possibility: Cultivate in yourself the qualities you think a good father should have. And even if you actually had a pretty decent father, Scorpio, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t perfect. So it still might be interesting to try out some of these ideas. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to get more of the fathering energy you would thrive on.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;December 21) â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I seem free, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always running.â&#x20AC;? So said Sagittarian musician Jimi Hendrix, widely regarded as one of the most inventive and electrifying guitarists who ever lived. Does that prospect have any appeal to you, Sagittarius? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, of course, recommend that you keep running for the rest of your long life. After a while, it will be wise to rest and ruminate. But I do think it might be illuminating to try this brazen approach for a week or two. If it feels right, you might also want to mix in some dancing and skipping and leaping with your running. CAPRICORN (December 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;January 19) In the next 11 months, Capricorn, you will be given some choice riddles about the art of togetherness. To solve them, you will have to learn much more about the arts of intimacyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or else! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to you: either work your ass off as you strengthen your important relationships or else risk watching them unravel. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take this as a grim, sobering assignment. On the contrary! Play hard. Experiment freely. Be open to unexpected inspiration. Have fun deepening your emotional intelligence. That approach will work best. AQUARIUS (January 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;February 18) Hypothesis: The exciting qualities that attract you to someone in the ďŹ rst place will probably drive you a bit crazy if you go on to develop a long-term relationship. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean you should avoid seeking connections with intriguing people who captivate your imagination. It does suggest you should have no illusions about what you are getting yourself into. It also implies that you should cultivate a sense of humor about how the experiences that rouse your passion often bring you the best tests and trials. And why am I discussing these eccentric truths with you right now? Because I suspect you will be living proof of them in the months to come.

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

In 1961, Paul Cezanneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s painting The Artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sister was on display at a museum in Aix-en-Provence, France. Then a lucky event occurred: it was stolen. When it was ďŹ nally recovered months later, it had been ripped out of its frame. An art restorer who was commissioned to repair it discovered that there was a previouslyunknown Cezanne painting on the back of the canvas. As a result, the appraisal of the original piece rose $75,000. Now both sides are on view at the St. Louis City Art Museum. I foresee a comparable progression in your life, Pisces. An apparent setback will ultimately increase your value.
