Urban Growth There’s a huge amount of undeveloped and underdeveloped land in Santa Rosa (“Blazing Speed,” Nov. 1). We should look there before even considering expanding urban growth boundaries.

Our Pathological President I’ll give him one thing: Trump is a great teacher. In this crazy culture, where we are taught that material success is everything and that success equals money, we can see by his example a man whose life is corrupted with the idea that money equates to a happy, satisfying life. But look closer. Are these the actions of a man who experiences

THIS MODERN WORLD

joy, contentment, peace? Is that the face of a happy man? I think not. He clearly demonstrates that money can’t buy wisdom, character, morals, understanding or maturity. His life is an example of a person so insulated by money from the normal experiences of living that he acts as if he doesn’t need other people. He needn’t answer to anyone and is without regard for his impact on other humans. Psychologically speaking, what is evident to most other people is his pathological need

By Tom Tomorrow

to be admired, tended to and provided for, and to have no hint of disagreement about his point of view. In effect, he can’t tolerate the existence of other people. He presents, and represents, the worst of masculinity: compensating with a blustery, fake strong persona while hiding a scared, little boy inside. He hides this boy from us, and from himself, preferring to believe his own myth of being a man, an adult. He actually seems to believe that bullying is a strength. My hunch is that one reason he devalues women is because, somewhere inside, he knows they are stronger than he is; they are more resilient, they know the value of collaboration and demonstrate daily the survival value of working together. We are, after all, pack animals. Our evolutionary history has taught us that staying together and working together is the thing that ensures our survival as a species. But like a kid in kindergarten who never got to learn how to share with others, Trump not only doesn’t play well with others, he doesn’t know how to play well with others. So he retreats to the fantasy and insulation of the monied life, believing in the world where everyone agrees with him, smiles at him, tells him how great he is. This allows him to live in a dissociated, auto-erotic state. Nobody turns him on quite like he does. He literally lives in a non-relational world. He may be the best living example of how not to live. He exemplifies how to flaunt the trappings of success as a way to appear happy while remaining an isolated, insecure, psychologically weak person.

The Noose Tightens The law closes in on Trump and Co. BY E. G. SINGER

‘I

am not a crook.” So spoke Richard Nixon, almost 45 years ago, which preceded his downfall, the result of charges involving the Watergate break-in and subsequent investigation. And now you, Mr. Trump, issue your own arrogant statement regarding the current investigation of Russian influence into the presidential campaign and your current administration, calling it a “witch hunt.” Robert Mueller’s current investigation will be far-reaching and take time, which is appropriate, given the potential ramifications of what may have occurred. With these indictments, he has just dropped his first payload of bombs . . . right on target . . . right into your bunker! Of course, Mr. Trump, you have the authority to pardon all members of your inner circle at any time. You could also terminate Mr. Mueller’s inquiry, should the heat and smoke of those investigative fires draw near and begin to drop blackened ashes on your residence and singe the curtains and carpets of the Oval Office you now occupy. But be judicious with that authority; a bridge too far could be crossed should you choose such actions. This is a nowin situation. And midterm elections are coming up quickly, one year away. You may have the unpleasant spectacle of observing your “loyal supporters” as rats jumping off a sinking ship, to save their own political asses, as it becomes clear to them your vessel is no longer seaworthy. A few of the more courageous have already repudiated you and your policies. As with Nixon’s accomplices, Mr. Trump, your cohorts will now face the ongoing scrutiny of both legal and public accountability for their actions, and if found guilty will be punished for their deeds. At this point we don’t know where this inquiry will lead, but as with Mr. Nixon, the past strategy to “follow the money” could once again be important territory to explore. And you, Mr. Trump (to echo your affinity for repetitive adverbs) should very, very, very concerned and fearful. Time is not on your side. E. G.

DISASTER ASSISTANCE James Lee Witt, center, and Congressman Sanford Bishop speak

to a Georgia tornado victim in 2000 when he was FEMA director for Bill Clinton.

To Witt

We know he’s the former FEMA guy—what about James Lee Witt’s current business interests? BY TOM GOGOLA

J

ames Lee Witt, the Bill Clinton–era Federal Emergency Management Agency administrator, was tapped in October to lead the fire-recovery nonprofit Rebuild North Bay. He headed FEMA in the 1990s,

but more recently founded a corporation called EB5 Global Management, LLC, which seeks to capitalize on a controversial U.S. law that grants fast-track permanent residence status to foreign nationals in exchange for large investments in American development projects. The company has offices in

Washington, D.C., and Little Rock, Ark., and was registered in Delaware in August 2015. According to its website, EB5 Global Management sets out to “form, fund and manage special purpose limited partnerships to loan money to companies creating jobs in the United States. We align the capital requirements

of domestic developers and entrepreneurs with the immigration goals of our EB5 investors.” Witt’s firm accomplishes this goal by “coordinating the investment of foreign capital into development projects that are located within the United States in conformity with the requirements of the EB-5 Visa Green Card Program.” EB-5 visas are granted to foreigners who make investments of at least $500,000 in areas with high unemployment or at least $1 million everywhere else, in exchange for a guarantee of 10 full-time jobs for every million dollars invested. Since its inception, the EB-5 program has been used to finance hotels, retail space, housing projects and numerous Las Vegas casinos. Regionally, the $6 billion Treasure Island development project now underway in San Francisco was undertaken with EB-5 loans provided to the Lennar Corporation, the nation’s secondlargest homebuilder. Rebuild North Bay is a 501(4)(c) nonprofit initiative launched by Darius Anderson, a prominent Sacramento lobbyist and real estate investor based in Sonoma who is also the managing partner of Sonoma Media Investments, the newspaper group which owns the Press Democrat. Anderson’s lobbying clients on record with the state of California include Station Casinos, a Las Vegas corporation that manages the Graton Rancheria Casino in Rohnert Park. He also lobbies for Tesla, CannaCraft and Robertson’s Ready Mix, one of the nation’s largest concrete firms, which is owned by the Mitsubishi Materials Corporation. And Anderson’s Kenwood Investments is a key development partner behind the eco-friendly Treasure Island project now underway. According to an August 2017 EB-5 project database compiled by the Center for Real Estate Finance Research at New York University, the Treasure Island development is funded, in part via $155 million in foreign ) 10

loans provided to the Lennar Corporation to build a new community of 8,000 homes and hundreds of thousands of feet of new retail space. Will a Treasure Island–style project find purchase in the firescarred North Bay as it begins to rebuild? According to its website, “Rebuild North Bay will be led by an integrative team of community and business leaders focused on understanding what went right and what went wrong, while developing a comprehensive plan for recovery and rebuilding.” the organization says it will eventually focus on a strategy for rebuilding, but doesn’t yet offer any specifics about what shape that may take. Witt’s office did not respond to a request for comment about his EB5 Global Management firm and what role it may play in Rebuild North Bay. In response to a set of questions from the Bohemian, Rebuild North Bay’s media liaison Ken Garcia says Witt’s outside business interests won’t play any role in the rebuilding—and that Rebuild North Bay won’t actually be rebuilding anything. “The organization is currently focused on forming its structure,” Garcia says via email, “putting its executive committee together and identifying its core principles and needs so it can better serve the North Bay’s recovery efforts. So I can’t answer all your questions, but I can tell you this: RNB does not plan to build, or rebuild any structures. As such, there is no role for the EB-5 program, nor for Mr. Witt’s involvement in it. Witt will serve in an advisory capacity to cities, counties and others on how to effectively deal with FEMA and maximize the federal dollars that can be made available to the affected areas.” According to the IRS, Rebuild North Bay’s 501(4)(c) nonprofit designation allows it “to encourage industrial development and relieve unemployment in an area by making loans to businesses so

they will relocate to the area.” Most EB-5 investment activity is undertaken by Asian nationals. In recent years wealthy Chinese have been the major beneficiaries of the expedited green cards, according to a 2015 study from Savills Studley Research, a commercial real estate firm.

Will foreign investment play a role in the rebuilding of the North Bay? According to the report, the United States issues about 10,000 of the visas annually, and as recently as 2014, 85 percent of them went to mainland Chinese nationals, who are generally less interested in a big return on their investment than on obtaining the fast-track visa—hence the emergence of low-interest, “cheap capital” loans from Chinese investors to American developers, who of late have included presidential first son Jared Kushner, who used EB-5 loans in a big New Jersey development. A 2016 report in Forbes noted that the recent construction of the Lucky Dragon casino in Las Vegas was undertaken largely with EB-5 investments from Chinese nationals, and the result was a casino built largely with Chinese money and with the stated goal of attracting Chinese-Americans gamblers. Critics of EB-5 visas include California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who called for the program’s elimination earlier this year when it was up for congressional reauthorization. She highlighted the unfairness of letting wealthy

foreigners buy their way into the country while immigrants of lesser means have to wait years for a green card, or face deportation if they arrived illegally. California is the biggest player in the EB-5 economic space, according to the California Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development, with around 200 so-called regional centers licensed by the United States Customs and Immigration Service. One is called New World Regional Center; it’s the center utilized in the Treasure Island project (New World is one of several regional centers operated by the Seattle-based corporation). The pay-to-stay EB-5 arrangement is an especially sensitive issue in the North Bay and in the state’s agricultural sector where 71 percent of all field work is undertaken by immigrant labor. Around 40 percent of all hospitality workers in the state are also immigrants. The Press Democrat and its affiliated publications have emphasized Witt’s record at FEMA, but haven’t mentioned EB5. An Oct. 24 story in the Press Democrat noted that Witt has a new company involved in attaining “bridge loans” for major U.S. infrastructure projects. That’s called the Witt Global Partners Infrastructure Fund, which is seeking between $500 and $800 million for an unspecified infrastructure project. The fund was created before the North Bay fires. Witt’s Wikipedia entry tails off in 2015 when it comes to detailing the for-profit LLCs under his control, most of which were incorporated recently, in Delaware. According to the Delaware Department of State business entity portal, Witt-controlled private-equity investment LLCs include Witt Global Partners, incorporated October 2015; Witt Global Partners Capital, incorporated January 2017; Witt Capital Partners, incorporated July 2016; Witt Global Partners Asset Management, incorporated February 2017; and Witt Global Partners GP-1, incorporated February 2017.

Dining PILED HIGH Sonoma County’s Kendra Kolling has earned a following for her famed sandwiches.

Still Cooking After the fire, Farmer’s Wife Kendra Kolling soldiers on BY FLORA TSAPOVSKY

T

he week after her house burned down in last month’s fires, Kendra Kolling came back to her regular gig at the San Francisco Ferry Building farmers market, making her signature sandwiches at the Farmer’s Wife.

“I find great comfort in the markets,” Kolling says. “To

experience the familiar, the normal, has been very helpful.” It was the second week after the fire that grief set in and Kolling decided to take a break. She and her family fled their Kenwood home on Oct. 8 and evacuated to Rohnert Park. The following day, they came back to find their home, barn, catering van and guesthouse burned to the ground. Trees around their property were still on fire.

A month later, she’s come to terms with the disaster and is doing her best to move forward. “I’m not crying when I tell the story anymore, at least.” Fans of her sandwiches are happy she’s still in business. Last year, Kolling’s braised greens, egg and cheese sandwich was voted “Best Breakfast Sandwich in the Country” by the Time Inc. Media Group and other of her creations have been featured nationwide in

online sites like Extra Crispy and on the Food Network. Kolling has worked in the food and wine industry for most of her life, and called Sonoma County home for 30 years. Her husband, Paul Kolling, is an apple grower and the founder of Nana Mae’s Organics. She founded the Farmer’s Wife in a portable 10-by-10-foot tent seven years ago as she prepared to send her two oldest kids to college. “I started by serving omelettes, oatmeal—you name it—but I quickly realized sandwiches were the most sought-after,” she says. To simplify even further, Kolling got rid of most of her bread varieties, sticking to Full Circle Baking Company’s organic sourdough, the perfect vehicle for her fresh and local ingredients, she says. The menu changes seasonally, and past standouts includes a mission fig, honey, lavender, bacon and Gravenstein apple cheese melt, and a toasted fennel sausage, kimchi and avocado grilled cheese super sandwich. The equation couldn’t be more simple: good cheese, fruits and vegetables and a meaty twist. She came close to opening a restaurant at the Barlow in Sebastopol—twice—but the deals fell through. “When I started my business, my vision was, ‘I really want to pay the electric bill, send my kids to birthday parties, send them on soccer teams.’ All the money goes into the kids’ education. I don’t have the overhead to open a shop. It’s a risk I can’t afford,” she says. Now, with the losses suffered in the fire, this dream is even further away, but Kolling’s calendar is filling up with holiday catering opportunities, and she’s still at the Ferry Building on Saturdays and the Marin Civic Center’s farmers market on Sundays. “If there’s anything being a farmer’s wife taught me, it’s that life is hard,” she says. “I’ve had 20 years of training to navigate through this difficult time with grace and calm.” For more info, visit thefarmerswifesonoma.com.

Not Lost Love survived the fire at Kenwood outpost of Paradise Ridge BY JAMES KNIGHT

I

kinda knew I’d find Champagne in paradise. I just momentarily forgot it was so easy to find my way back to Paradise. This month, “everyone who walks in the door,” says Paradise Ridge tasting-room manager Annette McDonnell, “I hand them a glass of bubbly.” Whether sampled from a flute or a bowl, the Paradise Ridge 2014 Blanc de Blancs ($44) warms the nose with aromas of brioche and toasty lemon merengue pie crust, before awakening the palate with a broad sweep of brisk, lemony acidity. McDonnell and her personable staff like to interject a little wine education even while pouring a glass of sparkling wine—partly for their own amusement, jokes a staff

member, because it involves trying to sip while holding one’s nose. But wait—why am I still talking about Paradise Ridge, the Santa Rosa winery we mourned as “lost” and “gone” after the Tubbs fire left it in a smoking (and highly televised) ruin? Indeed, for this column, I’d originally intended to find some orphan bottle of the estate’s wine, wax sentimental and tactfully ask how grieving fans might help—or just find the wine. That’s when I remembered that back in 2008, Paradise Ridge opened a satellite tasting room in a cozy little shack on Highway 12. “And the view is beautiful,” says McDonnell, gesturing out a front door that frames a Sugarloaf Ridge– area landscape that’s dramatic on any day—just somewhat charred at present, by yet another fire that had also threatened the little town of Kenwood in the direction of the back door. What a month! But McDonnell says she doesn’t want the winery’s story to stick on scenes wrought by the fires: “We don’t want people to be ‘Aww.’ We want people to be ‘Yeah!’” The best way to help Paradise Ridge, she says, is to help their wine country neighbors by visiting and buying wine. Not that they don’t have plenty of their own to offer, having 11,000 cases in safe storage at a Windsor facility. It’s been mostly locals here in recent weeks, says McDonnell, although today she’s hosting two couples who trekked up from the East Bay, having got a tip that the winery was still open in Kenwood. After tasting through wines like the luxuriously silky 2015 Nagasawa Vineyard Russian River Valley Chardonnay ($40), which defies simplistic California Chardonnay descriptors, and the 2013 Convict Rockpile Zinfandel ($48), a popular, plum-and-cassis-scented Zinfandel that evokes Cabernet, it looks like they’re very much on the “Yeah!” side. Paradise Ridge Kenwood Tasting Room, 8860 Sonoma Hwy., Kenwood. Open daily, 11am–6pm. Tasting fees, $15–$20. Herb and chocolate pairings, $25–$40. 707.282.9020.

from the North Bay Fires Redwood Valley and Santa Rosa Community Recovery Fund Dear Friends, Neighbors, Colleagues, Customers, and Suppliers – Mendocino and Sonoma Counties were struck by devastating wildfires. The loss of life, property, and possessions is still being tallied and has already surpassed any modern recorded fire. Our company and employees have long, deep roots in both counties. Many were impacted by the fires — at one point over 25 were evacuated, several lost their homes, and we heard many of the harrowing tales similar to the thousands displaced. We are very grateful to our employees and the emergency response. We offer our condolences for the loss of loved ones. The recovery and restoration of homes and personal lives will take years. We want to assure the community — through our actions — we will be here for the long haul. We have considered how we can help the larger community where we live and work. I have received many phone calls and inquiries — “How can we help?”, “Where can we send money, supplies, resources?” We have spent some time to consider long-term support for communities most affected by the fires. We lost more than homes and buildings. The wide and fast devastation was a fracturing shock to the community. We ask you to join us in support of restoring things which build community. People lost gathering locations, community centers, ball parks, elder care centers; they lost pets and places to enjoy with their children. Teachers and emergency workers lost their homes and belongings. Community space, youth and elderly, teachers and public safety are the critical threads in the fabric of any community. To that end, we ask for your support to help support the most impacted communities. Specifically:


21

• We will match dollar for dollar the first $400,000. • The money will be distributed in Mendocino and Sonoma Counties. • The funds will be directed to youth, elder, educators, emergency workers, and animals displaced by the Nuns, Redwood Valley, and Tubbs Fires.

• The committee will consist of three (3) individuals — Carmel J. Angelo, Mendocino County resident, Buck Ganter, Mendocino County resident, Marty Olhiser, Sonoma County resident. • 100% of the donations will be put to use. Our company will pay related administrative costs. Additional Company Actions: • We are offering $5,000 relocation bonuses to new employees who not only lost homes but livelihoods and $1,000 referral bonuses to people who help. • We will have our heavy equipment and operators licensed to participate in the clean-up. Any “disaster money” we receive related to this work, we will donate to the Recovery Fund. • And importantly, we pledge to continue our “regular” community support. Each year our employees manage and distribute about $300,000 in community action grants, ag education support, college scholarships, and matching capital programs to our communities for a wide range of charity. This will continue. It is important we remember these needs despite the immediate need for fire recovery. Please see the link below to make your contribution today. And please share with your community to help ours. Redwood Valley and Santa Rosa need our support for the long haul. We are all at our best when we work together. Thank you in advance for your support of this important effort. If you have any questions about the company or this letter, please contact us at www.MendoCo.com, or call me directly at the number below.

Prolific North Bay author and frequent Bohemian contributor Jonah Raskin is best known for his poetry and books on cannabis and Jack London.

Raskin reads from Dark Land, Dark Mirror with a book launch on Thursday, Nov. 9, at Readers’ Books, 130 E. Napa St., Sonoma. 7pm. Free admission. 707.939.1779.

Nineteen seventy-seven. Young Ben (Oakes Fegley) is orphaned, and then deprived of his hearing by a freak accident. Finding a stash of money left behind by his mother, he decides to search for his father, because of a mysterious message left on a bookmark. His story is contrasted with the tale of Rose (Millicent Simmonds), an affluent shut-in of 1927. There are all sorts of reasons why the wondrous Wonderstruck should have failed, and the principal challenge was matching a pair of wildly different eras. Haynes (Carol, Far from Heaven) deftly switches back and forth from a silent era of sharp black-and-white angles to mellow color; when a taxi drives through the spray of an uncapped fire hydrant, we think of Travis Bickle’s journeys in Taxi Driver. These ’70s streetscapes are as sterling as the recreations in the HBO series The Deuce, but with a far wider focus. It’s grimy, but nostalgic. Simmonds, who is deaf and plays a deaf character, has tremendous charm as she pursues a silent film star (Julianne Moore); it’s touching to see brave, dark-eyed Rose take in the last performance of a silent film at a theater where the Vitaphone sound system equipment is about to be installed—were there deaf movie fans betrayed by the arrival of sound film? Cory Michael Smith and James Urbaniak provide support as Rose’s allies. They really have faces, as Sunset Boulevard character Norma Desmond put it. Moore returns to connect the sundered history in pantomime; our finest living screen actress repairs the broken chains of time with the help of lovely toylike miniatures, in a sequence free of the tweenness of Wes Anderson. This is a film to cherish, and it’s one of the best movies about New York I’ve seen. ‘Wonderstruck’ is playing at Summerfield Cinemas, 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.525.8909.

performances, including Australian pop duo Air Supply (pictured) on Nov. 11, Dwight Yoakam on Nov. 26 and Mannheim Steamroller on Nov. 29. “There were rumors out there that the entire building had burned down,” Nowlin says. When the smoke cleared, much of the east end of the campus was indeed lost, including classrooms, the east auditorium and the workshop. “We knew that the main stage theater and the rest of the facility was safe,” Nowlin says. “But we knew that we had a long road to reopen to the public.” In addition to the structural damage, the center lost over 200 instruments, valued at $120,000 and maintained as part of its instrument lending library. “We are looking to the community to help replace those instruments,” says director of education and community engagement Ray Gargano, who adds that groups like the Santa Rosa Symphony and Sonoma State University are already helping replace and store instruments while the center rebuilds. One of the first things Luther Burbank Center’s director of programming Anita Wiglesworth did after the disaster was communicate to the music industry that the center was not done for. “We are still here and viable and a part of this community,” says Wiglesworth, who reached out to artists scheduled to perform in the coming weeks about supporting the community through the “pay what you can” program, offering tickets especially to those affected by the recent fires and to first responders. Wigleworth adds that the center is looking at long-term goals for giving back to the community beyond the first wave of benefit concerts. “We’ve been talking to artists to work up a plan that will be pretty strategic, not just in the next coming months, but also the next couple of years.”

Music Therapy SoCo Music Coalition offers free classes Santa Rosa–based nonprofit SoCo Music Coalition has only been around since September, but already the music-education center has bonded with the community in the wake of the wildfires and is offering free music classes to kids through November.

Founded by longtime Sonoma County musician Robb Ringwald and recent North Bay transplant and Silicon Valley businesswoman Noelle Nicholson, the new nonprofit school of rock possesses all the equipment and instructors needed for kids between ages eight and 17. In response to the recent wildfires, SoCo Music Coalition is hosting a new program, “Music Is Medicine,” and waiving its fees for the month of November. With no commitment required, the coalition is transforming into a refuge of creative outlet and positive focus to help kids recover emotionally from the fires. This weekend, SoCo Music Coalition also hosts a rock ’n’ roll fundraiser featuring veteran Seattle alternative group Malfunkshun (pictured) headlining. Founding guitarist Kevin Wood is still at the helm of the glam-meets-grunge legend. Local bands Hot Start, E Negative and the Marshall House Project open the show, and proceeds will help the coalition continue to serve the North Bay’s next generation of rock stars. SoCo Music Coalition hosts Malfunkshun on Friday, Nov. 10, at the Phoenix Theater, 201 Washington St., Petaluma. 7:30pm. $15. All ages. socomusiccoalition.org. —Charlie Swanson

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

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

GEMINI (May 21–June 20) The next two weeks will be one of the best times ever to ask provocative, probing questions. In fact, I invite you to be as curious and receptive as you’ve been since you were four years old. When you talk with people, express curiosity more often than you make assertions. Be focused on finding out what you’ve been missing, what you’ve been numb to. When you wake up each morning, use a felt-tip marker to draw a question mark on your forearm. To get you in the mood for this fun project, here are sample queries from poet Pablo Neruda’s Book of Questions: “Who ordered me to tear down the doors of my own pride? Did I finally find myself in the place where they lost me? Whom can I ask what I came to make happen in this world? Is it true our desires must be watered with dew? What did the rubies say standing before the juice of the pomegranates?” CANCER (June 21–July 22) “Things to say when in love,” according to Zimbabwe poet Tapiwa Mugabe: “I will put the galaxy in your hair. Your kisses are a mouthful of firewater. I have never seen a more beautiful horizon than when you close your eyes. I have never seen a more beautiful dawn than when you open your eyes.” I hope these words inspire you to improvise further outpourings of adoration. You’re in a phase when expressing your sweet reverence and tender respect for the people you care about will boost you physical health, your emotional wealth, and your spiritual resilience. LEO (July 23–August 22) Are you working on solving the right problem? Or are you being distracted by a lesser dilemma, perhaps consumed in dealing with an issue that’s mostly irrelevant to your long-term goals? I honestly don’t know the answers to those questions, but I am quite sure it’s important that you meditate on them. Everything good that can unfold for you in 2018 will require you to focus on what matters most—and not get sidetracked by peripheral issues or vague wishes. Now is an excellent time to set your unshakable intentions.

VIRGO (August 23–September 22) Every one of us experiences loneliness. We all go through periods when we feel isolated and misunderstood and unappreciated. That’s the bad news, Virgo. The good news is that the coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to make loneliness less of a problem. I urge you to brainstorm and meditate about how to do that. Here are some crazy ideas to get you started. 1. Nurture ongoing connections with the spirits of beloved people who have died. 2. Imagine having conversations with your guardian angel or spirit guide. 3. Make a deal with a “partner in loneliness”—a person you pray or sing with whenever either of you feels bereft. 4. Write messages to your Future Self or Past Self. 5. Communicate with animals. LIBRA (September 23–October 22) The drive for absolute perfection could undermine your ability to

BY ROB BREZSNY

create what’s very good and just right. Please don’t make that mistake in the coming weeks. Likewise, refrain from demanding utter purity, pristine precision or immaculate virtue. To learn the lessons you need to know and launch the trends you can capitalize on in 2018, all that’s necessary is to give your best. You don’t have to hit the bull’s eye with every arrow you shoot—or even any arrow you shoot. Simply hitting the target will be fine in the early going.

SCORPIO (October 23–November 21)

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

SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21)

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

CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19) In the coming months it will be crucial to carefully monitor the effects you’re having on the world. Your personal actions will rarely be merely personal; they may have consequences for people you don’t know as well as those you’re close to. The ripples you send out in all directions won’t always look dramatic, but you shouldn’t let that delude you about the influence you’re having. If I had to give 2018 a title with you in mind, it might be “The Year of Maximum Social Impact.” And it all starts soon. AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18) The punk ethic is rebellious. It transgresses conventional wisdom through “a cynical absurdity that’s redeemed by being hilarious.” So says author Brian Doherty. In the hippie approach, on the other hand, the prevailing belief is “love is all you need.” It seeks a “manic togetherness and all-encompassing acceptance that are all sweet and no sour—inspiring but also soft and gelatinous.” Ah, but what happens when punk and hippie merge? Doherty says that each moderates the extreme of the other, yielding a tough-minded lust for life that’s both skeptical and celebratory. I bring this to your attention, Aquarius, because the punk-plushippie blend is a perfect attitude for you to cultivate in the coming weeks. PISCES (February 19–March 20)

I’m falling in love with the way you have been falling in love with exciting possibilities that you once thought were impossible. Oh, baby. Please go further. Thrilling chills surge through me whenever you get that ravenous glint in your mind’s eye. I can almost hear you thinking, “Maybe those dreams aren’t so impossible, after all. Maybe I can heal myself and change myself enough to pursue them in earnest. Maybe I can learn success strategies that were previously beyond my power to imagine.”

Meet Ally Williams

Corporate Wine Buyer’s Assistant & Employee Owner of Oliver’s Market

Life is too short to drink bad wine…

Whether you’re grabbing a bottle for a casual meal with friends, or planning a holiday feast for family, step outside the glass and reach for the

very versatile Rive Sud Rose of Pinot Noir.

Complimentary to a wide variety of foods, this rose leads with fragrant aromas of raspberry and cherry; further enticing the palate is a concentrated, ripe red-fruit core, all wrapped up with a crisp, fresh finish.

So grab life by the glass, & say Yes Way! to rose.

Pinot Noir 2016, France. This mouthwatering rose comes from highelevation vineyards at the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains, where soils are a combination of red clay and crushed limestone. It’s a delicious, mildly cherryish Rose... we’ve especially liked this with ham or smoked pork.
