Eurocentric

Mystery Solved?

“Discover” is an insulting term for a place that is already inhabited (“Drake Detective,” Aug. 8). Eurocentric history devalues the true history of our region.

Thanks to editor Stett Holbrook, and the Bohemian for publishing the first article about my Drake landing site hypothesis (“Drake Detective,” Aug. 8), now available online. As was mentioned in the article, my archeological team and I spent several years searching for the artifact that would have made the discovery indisputable (finding only iron tracings); however, I sincerely believe

that the collected “circumstantial evidence” is strong enough to win if this were a court case. I invite the readers (if they haven’t already) to take a look at the detailed evidence on my Sir Francis Drake website at sfdrakefoundation.org, and decide for themselves if one of the greatest of all California historical mysteries has finally been solved.

DUANE VAN DIEMAN Via Bohemian.com

By Tom Tomorrow

Slanted and Disenchanted Another shoddy, slanted piece by the Bohemian (“High Hats,” Aug. 15). No wonder your reviews are so poor. For starters, the name of the group opposing commercial pot operations in residential areas is Save Our Sonoma Neighborhoods, not Save our Sonoma County Neighbors. So, good journalism there, nice that you bothered to get the name right. Obviously, you didn’t talk to any members. And we are not “the neighbors” or “the neighbor camp.” You can use SOSN as an abbreviation. Also, the board voted against exclusion zones, they didn’t enact them. This after their own committee recommended them and three supervisors previously were favorable. Were you even there? We have had seven home invasions and 10 murders at Sonoma pot grows in the past three years. We had another shooting at a legal grow last week, with an attempted murder. The myth that legalization leads to less crime has been debunked. Colorado has had 11 pot-related homicides since legalization. How is that working? So as to your statement that the neighbor’s camp cited “perceived” threats to safety: are you for real? How many have to die, how many women and children need to get tied up and pistol-whipped before you stop calling it a “perceived” safety issue? Fifteen? Twenty? What’s your number?

YOUTH

2018

Days later, when I learned all my toys and home were gone, it reminded me of the book I read weeks before the fire called I Survived the Great Chicago Fire, 1871 by Lauren Tarshis. I asked my dad if we were going to rebuild like they did in Chicago. He said yes. I then asked would our house and the others in Santa Rosa be built out of brick like in Chicago? He didn’t know. Then I reread that book, and saw, amazingly, that it was the same date as our fire here in Santa Rosa: Oct. 8. Wow! I also learned that it was actually only after the second fire of Chicago, in 1874, that the Windy City made big changes. Are we going to wait for another fire here in Sonoma County before we make big changes? I hope not. Here is what Chicago did back in 1874: All future buildings needed to be built out of brick, because insurance companies were going to leave if this wasn’t done in all of Chicago. No tar roofs either! The New Fire Academy was created where O’Leary’s infamous cow knocked over the lantern, so firefighters could learn new fire-fighting techniques. Businesses and the city of Chicago worked together to develop firealert systems, so nobody else would need to run for their lives in the event of another big fire. I don’t think we need to build everything out of brick here in Santa Rosa, but I do hope we learn from the fires and make big changes. I still see smoke and ash in the Sonoma County sky, and I worry all the time. I love my home, and hope my mom and dad and the other adults will make it safe for me and my community.

Paper THE

PIPE DREAMS It’s been a real bear of a legislative session when it comes to cannabis in California.

The Bong Show

Sacramento goes to pot with a raft of post-legalization legislation BY TOM GOGOLA AND BRANDON MCCAPES

I

t’s been a mixed legislative bag for supporters of Proposition 64 this year, as the California State Legislature is poised to close out its summer session.

Numerous pot-related bills were presented over the session this year, angling in various ways to enhance, trim or otherwise square up the various potholes

and complexities that came along with the 2016 Adult Use of Marijuana Act and pre-existing medical-marijuana law. As the smoke settles, there are a handful of cannabis-related bills that have passed out of committee and are now headed to the State Senate and Assembly for full votes. The final day for each house to pass a bill and send it to Gov. Jerry Brown is Aug. 31. And numerous bills are stalled in

committee and won’t get a vote until next year—if at all. For the California Growers Association (CGA), which represents the state’s smallerscale cannabis cultivators and businesses in Sacramento, the session was a disappointment in that the lobbying group’s main legislative thrust, AB 2641—which proposed to open new opportunities for cannabis sales directly from producer

to consumer—was undone by pressure from lobbyists representing the so-called forces of Big Bud. But the CGA did report some good news afoot in the land of the legislators. Here are the bills still alive as of this week—and soon headed to a vote in the Senate and Assembly in anticipation of the signature from Gov. Jerry Brown. Senate Bill 311 California legalized medical-cannabis use in 1996 with Proposition 215 and adult recreational use in 2016 with Proposition 64. Given the state’s penchant for regulation-met-withfreedom, cannabis production has remained heavily regulated at every level of production and distribution. Heavy regulations have separated the industry into cultivation, production and distribution since the commodity was legalized for recreational sales. Senate Bill 311, which amends the state’s Business and Professions Code, seeks to relax regulations on distribution by making it easier for distributors to transport cannabis to other distributors and retailers. The bill was supported by the CGA, among other legal-weed lobbyists. The bill redefines the steps cultivators and distributors must take before transporting their product, which include laboratory testing and quality assurance reviews by uninterested parties. It also expands the ability of the Bureau of Cannabis Control to review distributors’ tax payments and records, and to investigate when they fail to comply. Under the bill, immature seeds and plants would be exempt from the transportation guidelines. Status: Headed for a vote before the full Senate and Assembly on or before Aug. 31. Senate Bill 1294 The Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA) was included as part of the law’s intent the “[reduction] of barriers to entry in the legal, regulated market,” according to the Legislative Counsel’s Digest. That’s been a thorny ride for legacy growers who were encouraged to come out of the proverbial shadows with


purpose would be exempted from taxes for cultivation, storage and distribution established by the AUMA. The state would not reimburse municipalities for the lost tax revenues. But cities are free to create their own cannabis taxation schemes under the AUMA, to cover, for instance, the costs of additional law enforcement. The bill is supported by the likes of the CGA and other pro-pot folks with an eye toward tax equity. Status: Headed to a vote before the Senate and Assembly. Assembly Bill 1863 California’s cannabis industry would sidestep any interactions with the federal tax code should this bill pass. This bill sets out to amend California’s Revenue and Taxation Code, which, under existing law, conforms to the federal tax code and prohibits those in the cannabis industry from deducting business expenses from income on their state taxes. Assembly Bill 1863 loosens those restrictions for cannabis businesses. Status: Passed out of committee, and headed for a full vote before the Senate and Assembly. Senate Bill 1409 Despite having the drug potency of a banana peel, hemp is a heavily regulated industry in itself. The seeds and fibers of the plant can be used for anything from dietary supplements to making paper, to creating a hair-piece for Sen. Mitch McConnell, who hates pot, Obama and liberals, but has embraced hemp production in his wet-brain home state of Kentucky. Closer to home, SB 1409 would ease current California regulations on hemp production by removing the requirement that hemp be grown from seed cultivars on a list approved in 2013. It would also allow the use of clonal propagation to reproduce the plants. The bill would also push the registration and renewal fees required by hemp producers to delegated county officials, who would use the fees to fund implementation of the regulations. The bill also declassifies the plant as either a fiber or oilseed product,

and applications would not need to specify their product as either (or both). Status: Passed out of committee, and headed for a full vote before the Senate and Assembly. umerous cannabisrelated bills have been held in committee and will not be voted on this year. Here are three: Senate Bill 930 would have created cannabis-limited charter banks and credit unions to provide banking and financial services for the industry. The upshot: it’s way too soon for this, especially when Wells Fargo just shut down the bank account of a medical-pot-supporting Democrat running for Congress in Florida who said she’d take money from the cannabis industry. Looks like there’s a ways to go on the banking-and-empathy front. Assembly Bill 924 would have required cannabis producers on tribal land, which is protected by federal law, to enter an agreement with the governor and establish a tribal cannabis regulatory commission. The idea was similar to the drive behind SB 1294’s push to include minority communities in the cannabis boom. Assembly Bill 2641 was the biggest and most disappointing defeat for the CGA, says executive director Hezekiah Allen. Under strict regulations, it would have allowed cannabis cultivators to apply for a temporary state license to sell cannabis to person 21 years and older at events— cannabis-related fairs, farmers markets and the like. “Despite several rounds of amendments that removed opposition from the United Food and Commercial Workers,” says Allen, “the United Cannabis Business Association remained in opposition and successfully killed the bill. It kind of breaks my heart that for the next year at least the people who make the products won’t be able to sell directly to the people who love the product.” Allen vows that direct marketing will be a big priority for the CGA in coming years.

their boutique strains of tasty, healthy buds—only to be met with no real incentive to do so, given, among other factors, that 80 percent of cannabis grown in California heads out of the state as black market product. And the AUMA failed to account for disproportionate law-enforcement impacts on California communities such as Oakland. Senate Bill 1294 would enact the Cannabis Collaboration and Inclusion Act, which aims to include communities negatively affected by cannabis criminalization in the legal marketplace. The bill acknowledges that communities with high levels of poverty, especially those of color, have been disproportionately affected by prohibition and overincarceration, and similarly face difficulty entering the multibillion dollar industry legally. Cannabis cultivators, manufacturers and distributors face a costly and difficult-tonavigate multi-tiered application process that excludes many who would otherwise join. By establishing local equity programs that would waive local and state fees while providing technical, regulatory and capital assistance, SB 1294 would direct the Bureau of Cannabis Control to assist economically disadvantaged Californians as they enter the industry. Status: Passed out of committee and headed to a full vote before the Senate and Assembly. Senate Bill 829 Nobody’s kidding themselves that the tax regime that came along with Proposition 64 is, to say the least, pretty stiff. Under the legalization scheme enacted in 2016, the state, counties and cities currently tax the distribution of any cannabis product at 15 percent of the average market value. Senate Bill 829 sets out to establish a “compassion-care license,” which would exempt from state and local taxes any cannabis or cannabis products donated to patients with a physician’s recommendation for medical purposes. All cannabis used for this

that’s when Johnny Marr plays a solo show at Gundlach Bundschu!

oan Baez, who graces our cover this week, is touring this year on what she’s calling the Fare Thee Well Tour, but we editorial scribes at the Bohemian sure hope the legendary folk musician and heroine of ’60s counterculture doesn’t retire just yet—well, at least not until she’s taken a righteous spin through our annual and epic fall arts preview produced by stalwart arts editor Charlie Swanson! Joan blows through the North Bay for a show at the Green Music Center in November—which reminds us to highlight our gratitude for autumn in the North Bay.

It’s an absolutely stunningly beautiful time of year (horrific wildfires notwithstanding), and to recall a lyric from Baez’s wonderful cover of the classic and haunting “Autumn Leaves”: “Only when the high winds blow,” she sings, “that I wish my hair was long / Sailing through the autumn leaves / Singing an ancient song.” So sing along with Joan, and sail your ancient souls through our annual preview of all the great culture offerings on deck this season.—Tom Gogola

o, what’s former Spreckels Performing Arts Center manager Gene Abravaya been doing since his retirement to the Arizona desert?

“I’ve been enjoying my retirement and developing style and techniques for the abstract sculptures I am interested in designing,” he says. “Oh, and I’ve been working on a new play.” That play, The Trial of John Brown, will have a one-time staged reading at the Spreckels Performing Arts Center on Aug. 25. In 1859, John Brown, an ardent abolitionist and fanatically religious man, led his followers into Harpers Ferry, Va. His objective: confiscate weapons from a rifle factory and an armory,

then sweep across the Southern United States, setting free every black slave he encountered. He was met with heavy resistance. After a three-day battle, during which all but five of his men were killed, Brown was finally captured. The trial that followed brought the issue of slavery to the attention of the nation and the entire world. What piqued Abravaya’s interest in this moment in American history? “I’ve always been fascinated with it ever since seeing Raymond Massey’s portrayal in a 1940 Errol Flynn film, Santa Fe Trail,” Abravaya says. “Although the character was somewhat distorted and superficial, there was much about John Brown’s personality that rang true. Reading more about the actual raid and subsequent trial captivated me.” Why Spreckels and not a theater in Tucson? “I brought the play up here because I’ve been involved in this acting community for years,” Abravaya says. “I wanted actors who were talented enough to make the written words come to life. I knew I would find the people I need up here to give life to the play and to help me see what legitimately works in the play and what still needs work.” Cast members include Heather Buck, Dixon Phillips, Chris Ginesi, Sarah Wintermeyer, Mary Gannon Graham, Sean O’Brien, Tim Setzer, Michael Ross, Chris Schloemp, William B. Thompson, Sheri Lee Miller, Zane Walters, ScharyPearl Fugitt and Nate Mercier. The project, Abravaya says, is more than about just writing a play. “I want to illustrate that the injustices of the past, no matter how much we try to deny them, are still with us, influencing the course of our lives. If I manage to agitate someone enough to become an agitator or an activist, I will have succeeded and maybe have contributed something of value to what might be the most important issue of our time.” ‘The Trial of John Brown’ will be performed Saturday, Aug. 25, at 7:30pm at Spreckels Performing Arts Center. 5409 Snyder Lane, Rohnert Park. Seating is limited. Admission is free.

ARIES (March 21–April 19) The two pieces of advice I have for you may initially seem contradictory, but they are in fact complementary. Together they’ll help guide you through the next three weeks. The first comes from herbalist and wise woman Susun Weed. She suggests that when you face a dilemma, you should ask yourself how you can make it your ally and how you can learn the lesson it has for you. Your second burst of wisdom is from writer Yasmin Mogahed: “Study the hurtful patterns of your life. Then don’t repeat them.” Speak the following declaration aloud and see how it feels: “I want strong soft kisses and tender unruly kisses and secret truth kisses and surprise elixir kisses. I deserve them, too.” If that puts you in a brave mood, Taurus, add a further affirmation: “I want ingenious affectionate amazements and deep dark appreciation and brisk mirthful lessons and crazy sweet cuddle wrestles. I deserve them, too.” What do you think? Do these formulas work for you? Do they put you in the proper frame of mind to co-create transformative intimacy? I hope so. You’re entering a phase when you have maximum power to enchant and to be enchanted.

BY ROB BREZSNY

be fresh when the new cycle begins? Are you in the mood to conclude this chapter of your life story and earn the relaxing hiatus you will need before launching the next chapter? Even if you don’t feel ready, even if you’re not in the mood, I suggest you do the work anyway. Any business you leave unfinished now will only return to haunt you later. So don’t leave any business unfinished!

SCORPIO (October 23–November 21)

Are you ready to mix more business with pleasure and more pleasure with business than you have ever mixed? I predict that in the coming weeks, your social opportunities will serve your professional ambitions and your professional ambitions will serve your social opportunities. You will have more than your usual amount of power to forge new alliances and expand your web of connections. Here’s my advice: Be extra charming, but not grossly opportunistic. Sell yourself, but with grace and integrity, not with obsequiousness. Express yourself like a gorgeous force of nature, and encourage others to express themselves like gorgeous forces of nature.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21)

As you map out your master plan for the next 14 months, I invite you to include the following considerations: an intention to purge pretend feelings and artificial motivations; a promise to change your relationship with old secrets so that they no longer impinge on your room to maneuver; a pledge to explore evocative mysteries that will enhance your courage; a vow to be kinder toward aspects of yourself that you haven’t loved well enough; and a search for an additional source of stability that will inspire you to seek more freedom.

“When I picture a perfect reader,” wrote philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, “I picture a monster of courage and curiosity, also something supple, cunning, cautious, a born adventurer and discoverer.” I suspect he was using the term “monster” with a roguish affection. I am certainly doing that as I direct these same words toward you, dear Sagittarian reader. Of course, I am always appreciative of your courage, curiosity, cunning, suppleness and adventurousness. But I’m especially excited about those qualities now, because the coming weeks will be a time when they will be both most necessary and most available to you.

CANCER (June 21–July 22) If you have been communing with my horoscopes for a while, you’ve gotten a decent education—for free! Nonetheless, you shouldn’t depend on me for all of your learning needs. Due to my tendency to emphasize the best in you and focus on healing your wounds, I may neglect some aspects of your training. With that as caveat, I’ll offer a few meditations about future possibilities. 1. What new subjects or skills do you want to master in the next three years? 2. What’s the single most important thing you can do to augment your intelligence? 3. Are there dogmas you believe in so fixedly and rely on so heavily that they obstruct the arrival of fresh ideas? If so, are you willing to at least temporarily set them aside?

CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19) You do not yet have access to maps of the places where you need to go next. That fact may tempt you to turn around and head back to familiar territory. But I hope you’ll press forward even without the maps. Out there in the frontier, adventures await you that will prepare you well for the rest of your long life. And being without maps, at least in the early going, may actually enhance your learning opportunities. Here’s another thing you should know: your intuitive navigational sense will keep improving the farther you get from recognizable landmarks.

Astrology

“All the world’s a stage,” wrote Shakespeare, “And all the men and women merely players.” In other words, we’re all performers. Whenever we emerge from solitude and encounter other people, we choose to express certain aspects of our inner experience even as we hide others. Our personalities are facades that display a colorful mix of authenticity and fantasy. Many wise people over the centuries have deprecated this central aspect of human behavior as superficial and dishonest. But author Neil Gaiman thinks otherwise: “We are all wearing masks,” he says. “That is what makes us interesting.” Invoking his view—and in accordance with current astrological omens—I urge you to celebrate your masks and disguises in the coming weeks. Enjoy the show you present. Dare to entertain your audiences.

VIRGO (August 23–September 22) I think you’ve done enough rehearsals. At this point, the apparent quest for a little extra readiness is beginning to lapse into procrastination. So I’ll suggest that you set a date for opening night. I’ll nudge you to have a cordial talk with yourself about the value of emphasizing soulfulness over perfectionism. What? You say you’re waiting until your heart stops fluttering and your bones stop chattering? I’ve got good news: The greater your stage fright, the more moving your performance will be. LIBRA (September 23–October 22)

In all the time we’ve worked on diminishing your suffering, we may have not focused enough on the fine art of resolving unfinished business. So let’s do that now, just in time for the arrival of your Season of Completion. Are you ready to start drawing the old cycle to a close so you’ll

AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18) Healing isn’t impossible. You may not be stuck with your pain forever. The crookedness in your soul and the twist in your heart may not always define who you are. There may come a time when you’ll no longer be plagued by obsessive thoughts that keep returning you to the tormenting memories. But if you hope to find the kind of liberation I’m describing here, I advise you to start with these two guidelines: 1. The healing may not happen the way you think it should or imagine it will. 2. The best way to sprout the seeds that will ultimately bloom with the cures is to tell the complete truth. PISCES (February 19–March 20)

Nineteenthcentury British painter J. M. W. Turner was one of the greats. Renowned for his luminous landscapes, he specialized in depicting the power of nature and the atmospheric drama of light and color. Modern poet Mary Ruefle tells us that although he “painted his own sea monsters,” he engaged assistants “to do small animals.” She writes that “he could do a great sky, but not rabbits.” I’m hoping that unlike Turner, you Piscean folks will go both ways in the coming weeks. Give as much of your creative potency and loving intelligence to the modest details as to the sweeping vistas.
