DID YOU KNOW? Violence Hurts Us All

Letters

Assault • Child Abuse • Domestic Violence Hate Crime • Elder Abuse • Fraud Homicide • Robbery • Sexual Assault Victims of domestic violence make up the largest percentage of clients serviced by Marin County’s Victim-Witness Program. Domestic violence occurs in all areas of our community and crosses all socio-economic lines. It is not unique to high-crime, low-income areas. In fact, partner abuse can be found in every community and also makes no exception for age, race, gender, sexual orientation, or nationality. Domestic violence is demonstrated when one partner uses abusive behavior to intimidate and control the other partner. This abuse can manifest as physical, emotional, sexual, economic, psychological, and/or any combination of the above. Partner abuse generally exhibits a repetitive cycle which consists of four phases: tension building, an abusive incident, reconciliation, where the offender will often apologize, and then a calming phase. During the tension-building phase, there is often a breakdown in communication. Offenders become threatening and the victims become fearful and feel the need to placate their abusers. This is generally followed by an abusive incident which can manifest itself in different ways. In extreme cases there is physical abuse, but an incident may also manifest itself by anger, verbal abuse, and destruction of property. After the explosive incident, offenders generally attempt to reconcile with their victims. Abusers may apologize to their victims, make excuses for their behavior, blame the victims for causing the incident, and deny the abuse occurred or its level of severity. Often overlooked are the children who witness domestic violence in the home. Children who are exposed to partner abuse become anxious, fearful, isolated, and may blame themselves for the chaos that is completely out of their control. The emotional and psychological trauma often follows them into adulthood and may perpetuate the cycle of abuse through learned behavior. If you are a victim of domestic violence, or know someone who is, please know that you are not alone and there are people here who want to help you. Simply contact your local police department or the Marin County VictimWitness Program Unit.

This week, a letter-writer has a good laugh over an anonymous letter-writer who “probably lacks the ability to truly comprehend anything.”

“Fact-challenged”

After reading ‘Mentally Ill Left’ and laughing all the way through, my first impression was that Pacific Sun editors were responding to criticisms of the absence of Tom Tomorrow, whose ‘tongue-in-cheek’ and sometimes outlandish cartoons used to be a mainstay of the Sun, by substituting this ridiculous and humorous ‘letter’ (“Sent anonymously because of very violent anti-American leftists”) [‘Mentally Ill Left,’ Letters, Aug. 23]. Really? That impression is further confirmed by the fact that Marin County, certainly one of the most educated and intelligent in the entire country, would be hard-pressed to actually find a resident who would be willing to demonstrate that they’re either totally uninformed, misinformed by Fox or haven’t been paying any attention to the idiocy emanating from the Oval Office for the past seven months! On the remote chance that maybe this poor befuddled writer actually exists, he or she is severely “fact-challenged.” For example, “I suggest you read Breitbart News; it is not anti-Semitic in any way that I can comprehend.” Seriously? First, that’s like saying, “The Pope is not Catholic,” and second, anyone who believes either of those premises

probably lacks the ability to truly comprehend anything! As for “Trump’s father was investigated in 1970 and exonerated by the FBI and HUD of any charges relating to discrimination. There is no factual evidence that Trump has a racist bone in his body. Not one single fact.” Actually, the extensive DOJ investigation proved conclusively that Trump Management, Inc. practiced the most flagrant discriminatory practices, and the suit resulted in a federal court order requiring the Trumps to “thoroughly acquaint themselves” with the Fair Housing Act and place ads informing people of color that their properties were open for all. I’d hardly call that ‘exonerated.’ Maybe the funniest line however was, “There is not a lick of proof that Steve Bannon is a racist or anyone around President Trump.” Right, and Gen. Reinhard Heydrich and LTC Adolf Eichmann, architects of “The Final Solution,” weren’t bigoted racists either. They were just working for the elected administration, like Bannon and Stephen Miller, architects of the Muslim bans. One gets the feeling that if this writer actually existed in the ’40s, they would be inclined to say, “Hey, The Final Solution? I don’t know; it might work. At least we should give it a chance.” —Larry Lack

Todd Shoberg has taken over as executive chef of the historic El Paseo restaurant, tucked away in downtown Mill Valley.

SPOTLIGHT ON MILL VALLEY

Ingredient-Focused Executive chef Todd Shoberg keeps El Paseo’s menu local and bold By Flora Tsapovsky

C

hef Todd Shoberg is not your typical Mill Valley resident. Covered in tattoos and scruffy, he would look equally at home in Seattle or Detroit. And yet it’s here, in Marin County’s luxurious and laid-back setting, that Shoberg, now taking the lead at Mill Valley’s historic El Paseo, became somewhat of a local star. It didn’t happen overnight. A few years ago, Shoberg moved to Mill Valley from San Francisco

and started working at Piatti, the local institution well visible from the highway; he then proceeded to manage the whole Moana Restaurant Group, which owns the restaurant. In 2014, Shoberg made a bold move by opening Molina, the first restaurant that he co-owned, while still with Moana. Lush and stylish, with sheepskincovered chairs and the evening’s playlist printed on the back of the menus (and played from the

chef ’s expansive record collection), Molina was a standout. The menu was as innovative and exciting as the setting; fresh local produce paired with unexpected touches, fish and seafood played off by smoky meats, desserts playing on sweet and savory. Now, in El Paseo, open in town since 1947, Shoberg’s cooking brightens up the aged brick walls and wooden beams. “Cassie Corless, who was brought on by Sammy a few months prior,

reached out, quite unexpectedly actually,” Shoberg says. The ‘Sammy’ in question is none other than Sammy Hagar, former Van Halen frontman and a unique brand of Mill Valley celebrity. In 2009, Hagar took over the restaurant with celebrity chef Tyler Florence, and this year, as Florence moved on, Hagar was looking for someone to take over and develop a lighter, more contemporary direction. Being an avid music


7

lover, Shoberg immediately clicked with the musician. “I had never dined there, believe it or not!” Shoberg says of El Paseo. “I feel like the space was waiting for me to show up and actually cook, not just dine.” After leaving Molina, which is now temporarily closed, Shoberg took time to consult other restaurants and run a pop-up, weighing his options. He’s looking forward to this venture, as many customers show up on El Paseo’s doorstep, excited to try his cooking again. “I will say that there is no inside dirt to reveal,” Shoberg says of Molina’s closing. “It’s just a product of the increasing challenge it has become to operate a small restaurant in the high-cost market of the Bay Area.” On Shoberg’s new menu at El Paseo, diners can find a fresh, vibrant salad combining stone fruit and heirloom tomatoes, stone fruit again—but in an addictive, salt and olive oilflavored crisp for dessert, rainbow trout with chorizo and mussels and other Shoberg staples. There’s an avocado toast, but with an indulgent addition of trout, and steak tartare, charred pork belly

with broccoli, game hen with grapes and more. Shoberg knows all about spot-on combinations of decadence and healthy Californian touches, bound to attract younger, more adventurous eaters. He shops at the farmers’ market daily to accommodate the menu. Shoberg’s own definition of it is pretty accurate: “Ingredient-focused, locally sourced Northern California coastal cuisine. Simple, bold, familiar and comforting flavors. Unpretentious and without fluff.” In the near future, he promises, “the menu now at El Paseo is going to be much more dynamic than previously, with subtle changes on an almost daily basis, and a new brunch program is planned for this fall.” How does Shoberg see the role of El Paseo’s Marin County location reflecting in his cooking? “It’s huge,” he says. “The dairy, produce, fish … so much of the area is supplying the chefs and restaurants with arguably the best products available in the world; I believe it.” Now, with a new gig in his favorite stomping grounds, Shoberg is excited, once again, to put these products on the table.Y

Shakespeare’s ‘Love’s Labour’s Lost,’ the closing play in Marin Shakespeare Company’s summer season, is a comical battle of the sexes.

THEATER

Right Recipe Marin Shakespeare succeeds in pulling off ‘Love’s Labour’s Lost’ By Charles Brousse

W

hen Love’s Labour’s Lost (LLL) opened its first major modern-era production on October 1, 1839 at the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, The Times of London critic summed up his impression as follows: “The play moves very heavily. The whole dialogue is but a string of brilliant conceits, which, if not delivered well are tedious and unintelligible.” That warning still holds and undoubtedly explains why the show is rarely produced. In fact, Marin Shakespeare Company (MSC) founders Robert and Lesley

Currier waited almost 30 years before deciding that they had the right group of actors, designers and, above all, the right director, to risk making it the closing entry in their three-play 2017 summer schedule. Luckily, the gamble is paying off handsomely. As far as the scholars can tell us, LLL was composed in the mid-1590s, when the 30-year-old Shakespeare was experimenting in an effort to find an artistic direction that he could follow in subsequent years. Two other plays from the same era—Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream—combined brilliant wordplay (an obsession among

the period’s cultural elite) with a compelling narrative to achieve longlasting popularity. LLL is different. It was intended to entertain the aristocrats gathered at Queen Elizabeth I’s Inns at Court and was kind of a pastiche of clever dialogue, satirical references to then-famous people, lampoons of foreigners and puns—hundreds of them, some funny, some real groaners and some completely unfathomable by today’s audiences. As for an overarching narrative, it’s so simple as to be virtually nonexistent. Four young noblemen, including King Ferdinand, reluctantly swear a solemn oath

to exclude women from their lives for three years, presumably to direct their energies to more serious endeavors without being distracted by the opposite sex. Next thing you know, four lovely young demoiselles sent by the king of France (including his daughter) arrive on a visit to cement relations between the two states. Within minutes of viewing these beauties, male resistance crumbles and each nobleman selects one of them to fall in love with. The offended ladies, however, are not about to forgive and forget, and so begins a familiar game of wooing as both sides seek advantage. Those, presumably, are “love’s labours,” but contrary to expectations, they culminate in an unexpected twist—the “lost” part of the title—which I won’t reveal except to say that the chances of anybody sticking to it range from slim to nil. It’s up to the cast to fill the empty spaces with activity that at least keeps the audience engaged. Fortunately, Rob Clare, an English director/actor who has had a lengthy and fruitful relationship with MSC, carries with him a bag of tricks learned in the Mother Country that will keep the ship moving, provided he has the right actors. In this regard, MSC has assembled one of its strongest ensembles ever. All four of the male leads (Dean Linnard as the Navarre king, Walter Zarnowitz, Terrance Smith and Patrick Russell as his noble confreres) are outstanding in executing the type of physical comedy that Clare has set for them. Russell, in particular, moves about Forest Meadows’ capacious stage with a cat-like fluidity that is wonderful to watch. The women are headed by Livia Gomes Demarchi as the French king’s daughter, whose job is to sort out the mess they encounter on their mission to Navarre. She is ably assisted by an entourage of Morgan Pavey, Eliza Boivin and Kathryn Smith-McGlynn. As for production elements, Abra Berman’s colorful costumes, April George’s spot-on lighting and Billie Cox’s music design all contribute to a rewarding production of one of Shakespeare’s more difficult plays.Y NOW PLAYING: Love’s Labour’s Lost runs through September 24 at the Forest Meadows Amphitheatre, Dominican University, 890 Belle Ave., San Rafael; 415/499-4488; marinshakespeare.org.

“ENERGETIC, ENGAGING” ENGAGING.” – VARIETY

Graphic artist Katie Kincade, inspired by her favorite band, Grateful Dead, designs posters that can be best described as a twisted throwback to concert art of the 1960s.

MUSIC

Rock Look Katie Kincade’s art captures the North Bay music scene By Charlie Swanson

F

or the last four years, independent graphic artist Katie Kincade has made her mark on music in Sonoma and Marin counties as an innovative and in-demand concertposter designer. She also produces eye-popping original album art, band logos, T-shirts, drumheads and more. “I’ve always been doing art in one form or another,” Kincade says. Growing up in Southern California, she came to San Francisco to study fine art at San Francisco State University and moved to Petaluma in 2005. A photography major with a minor in graphic design, Kincade says that she didn’t do much with the degree until a friend in the rock band The Grain asked her to make a logo for them. She did, and then she made a concert poster for them, then another and another. Word of mouth spread quickly, and now

Kincade works almost strictly with local bands and festivals as a fulltime graphic artist. “I often start by considering the type of music the band is, what their music describes,” Kincade says. “Or I just come up with something and roll with it.” Kincade’s work is marked by highly detailed, densely layered and colorful splashes of illustration that visually match musicians and bands. She says that she’s seen a surge of both local bands and grassroots support for local music in recent years, and she appreciates being connected to the scene through her art. “Every single person is so into the music and the community. I think everybody is stepping it up creatively; everybody’s influencing each other,” she says. “I don’t take any of this for granted; I still get giddy about it all.”Y Kinkykatdesigns.com.

The hunt for a murderer in ‘Golem’ By Richard von Busack

W

as Karl Marx actually Jack the Ripper? If director Juan Carlos Medina’s The Limehouse Golem doesn’t actually ask that question, it asks a similar one. During a hunt for a murderer in 1880s London, the whiskery Marx is a suspect; one reenactment of the crime has him caped, glowering and talking straight to the camera in the slowed-down devil’s voice, before wielding a straight razor. It’s adapted from Peter Ackroyd’s tricky novel Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem. It cuts down literary figures such as Marx, George Gissing and Thomas De Quincey who peopled the book, in favor of a Holmes-and-Watson-like team on the case. John Kildare (Bill Nighy) is a disliked police inspector, pushed into the job. Assigned to help him is George Flood, a fleshy London copper (Daniel Mays) who has been on the Limehouse beat for some time. The investigation is catalyzed by the testimony of former music hall star Lizzie Cree (Olivia Cooke). She faces

the gallows for the accused arsenic murder of her husband John (Sam Reid). Kildare suspects John of being the killer in a ghastly crime wave. Lizzie’s break into show business came courtesy of music hall performer Dan Leno (Douglas Booth). As Leno is described in the book, you imagine him as a job for Eddie Redmayne. Booth, by contrast, is a very contemporary type of handsome guy. He’s also menacing, but he can’t give us the shade of the famous Leno. The revelation is unsatisfactory, with withheld evidence and reverse angles we didn’t get clues on the first time around. Nighy’s role is, in outline, Holmes-like. But his Kildare is less competent than Sherlock, so he’s a tragic figure; it’s one of the least comic parts he’s taken.

the language in the deed that characterizes how title is held (i.e., joint tenancy, tenants in common, or community property) will be controlling, and not the community property presumption. You should consult your attorney if you want the community property presumption to be written into the recorded title to the property.

By Amy Alkon

Q:

I’ve been with my boyfriend for nine months. We are both in our late 20s and go out drinking a lot with our friends. I’ve noticed that when he’s drunk, he’ll be super affectionate and say really gushy things about me, our getting married, etc. Are his true feelings coming out, or is he just talking lovey-dovey because of the booze?—Bridal Hopes

A:

You’ve got to be wondering what it would take for you two to live happily ever after … cirrhosis? Many people insist that their personality changes dramatically when they’re all likkered up. Remind them of some outrageous thing they did the other night at the bar and they’ll go all protest-y—“But that wasn’t the real me!”—and point the finger at Jack, Jose or the Captain (as in Daniel, Cuervo or Morgan). The reality is, research on drinking’s effects on personality by clinical psychologist Rachel Winograd finds that beyond one area of personality—extroverson, which increases slightly in drunken people—we’re all pretty much the same jerks (or whatever) that we are when we’re sober. This consistency that Winograd and her colleagues observe makes sense vis-à-vis how psychologists find that personality has a strong genetic component and involves habitual patterns of thoughts, feelings and behavior. (There are five major personality dimensions: Conscientiousness, agreeableness, emotional stability, openness to experience and extroversion.) And though the Winograd team did find a small increase in extroversion, a body of research finds that personality traits are largely consistent across time and situations. However, the skeptic in you might ask: If personality doesn’t change after, say, three Sriracha margaritas, how come we’ve all seen people behaving differently when they’re sauced? Well, according to research by social psychologists Claude M. Steele and Robert A. Josephs, the behavioral changes of drunken excess appear to be caused not by alcohol itself but by alcohol-driven changes in perception that they call “alcohol myopia.” Alcohol appears to restrict attention, giving a person a sort of tunnel vision for whatever’s right in front of them. To explain this more simply, alcohol basically turns a person into the chimp version of themselves—focusing on whatever’s right in their face and experiencing simple basic emotions in response, like fear, lust, anger or blubbering affection. Meanwhile, alcohol diminishes their ability for mental processing of any complexity—most notably the sort of thinking that normally leads a person to say, “Well, on the other hand … ” (that little voice of reason that pipes up in more sober moments). Interestingly, the research on alcohol myopia debunks a widely believed myth—the assumption that getting drunk will necessarily lead a person to be much less inhibited. It may, but it may also lead the other way—to increased inhibition and less risk-taking. Consider field research by psychologist Tara MacDonald and her colleagues. Patrons entering a bar got their hands stamped—seemingly just to allow them to re-enter without standing in line again. Some had their hands stamped with the ominous warning “AIDS KILLS.” Others got the nebulous statement “SAFE SEX” or—in the control group—a smiley face. The 372 hand-stamped participants were later divided into two groups based on blood alcohol level. (Those with a blood alcohol level that was .08 percent or above were the “intoxicated group.”) The researchers found that the “intoxicated” people with the smiley or “SAFE SEX” stamp were more likely than sober participants to have sex without a condom. However, intoxicated people with the fear-inducing “AIDS KILLS” message expressed less willingness to have unprotected sex than even sober people the researchers surveyed. This is right in line with how alcohol leads to “tunnel vision.” Getting back to your boyfriend’s drunken mushygushies, consider how the tunnel vision of alcohol myopia likely plays out for him as he looks at you in the moment at the bar: “She’s so sparkly and nice … ” What’s missing, however, is all of the adult complexity—all of that “on the other hand … ” thinking that he’d likely do in more sober moments: Whether you two can make it as lifelong partners, whether he’s up for creating little people who’d call him Daddy, etc. In other words, there’s probably some stuff that he still needs to figure out. Give it some time—tempting as it is to use the findings about alcohol myopia to answer the question,“How will you make him hurry up and propose?” Two words: “Open bar.”Y Worship the goddess—or sacrifice her at the altar at adviceamy@aol.com.

Astrology

For the week of September 6

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’re halfintoxicated by your puzzling adventures—and half-bewildered, as well. Sometimes you’re spinning out fancy moves, sweet tricks and surprising gambits. On other occasions you’re stumbling, bumbling and mumbling. Are you really going to keep up this rhythm? I hope so, because your persistence in navigating through the challenging fun could generate big rewards. Like what, for example? Like the redemptive transformation of a mess into an asset. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “Free your

mind and your ass will follow,” sings funk pioneer George Clinton in his song “Good Thoughts, Bad Thoughts.” And what’s the best way to free your mind? Clinton advises you to “Be careful of the thought-seeds you plant in the garden of your mind.” That’s because the ideas you obsess on will eventually grow into the experiences you attract into your life. “Good thoughts bring forth good fruit,” he croons, while “Bullshit thoughts rot your meat.” Any questions, Taurus? According to my astrological analysis, this is the best possible counsel for you to receive right now.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): James Loewen wrote a book called Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong. He said, for instance, that during the Europeans’ invasion and conquest of the continent, it wasn’t true that Native Americans scalped white settlers. In fact, it was mostly the other way around: Whites scalped Indians. Here’s another example: The famous blind and deaf person, Helen Keller, was not a sentimental spokesperson for sweetness and light, but rather a radical feminist and socialist who advocated revolution. I invite you to apply Loewen’s investigative approach to your personal past, Gemini. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to uncover hidden, incomplete and distorted versions of your history, and correct them. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Roger Hodge

writes books now, but when he worked for Harper’s magazine, he had an unusual specialty. He gathered heaps of quirky facts, and assembled several at a time into long sentences that had a nutty poetic grace. Here’s an example: “British cattle have regional accents, elephants mourn their dead, nicotine sobers drunk rats, scientists have concluded that teenagers are physically incapable of being considerate, and clinical trials of an ‘orgasmatron’ are underway in North Carolina.” I’m offering Hodge as a worthy role model for you in the coming weeks, Cancerian. Be curious, miscellaneous and free-flowing. Let your mind wander luxuriantly as you make unexpected connections. Capitalize on the potential blessings that appear through zesty twists and tangy turns.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In Japan you can buy a brand of candy that’s called The Great Buddha’s Nose Snot. Each piece consists of a rice puff that resembles the Buddha’s nose filled with bits of brown sugar that symbolize the snot. The candymaking company assures customers that eating this treat brings them good luck. I invite you to be equally earthy and irreverent about your own spiritual values in the coming days. You’re in prime position to humanize your relationship with divine influences … to develop a more visceral passion for your holiest ideals … to translate your noblest aspirations into practical, enjoyable actions. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Will a routine trip to carry out an errand take you on a detour to the suburbs of the promised land? Will you worry that you’re turning into a monster, only to find the freakishness is just a phase that you had to pass through on your way to unveiling some of your dormant beauty? Will a provocative figure from the past lead you on a productive wild-goose chase into the future? These are some of the possible storylines that I’ll be monitoring as I follow your progress in the coming weeks.

By Rob Brezsny

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Let’s meet in the woods after midnight and tell each other stories about our origins, revealing the secrets that we almost forgot we had. Let’s sing the songs that electrified our emotions all those years ago when we first fell in love with our lives. Starlight will glow on our ancient faces. The fragrance of loam will seep into our voices like rainwater feeding the trees’ roots. We’ll feel the earth turning on its axis, and sense the rumble of future memories coming to greet us. We’ll join hands, gaze into the dreams in each other’s eyes, and dive as deep as we need to go to find hidden treasures. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): I don’t usually recommend giving gifts with strings attached. On the contrary, I advise you to offer your blessings without having any expectations at all. Generosity often works best when the recipients are free to use it any way they see fit. In the coming weeks, however, I’m making an exception to my rule. According to my reading of the omens, now is a time to be specific and forceful about the way you’d like your gifts to be used. As an example of how not to proceed, consider the venture capitalist who donated $25,000 to the University of Colorado. All he got in return was a rest room in a campus building named after him. If you give away $25,000, Scorpio, make sure that you at least get a whole building named after you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Now that you’re getting a taste of what life would be like if you ruled the world, I’ll recommend a manual. It’s called How To Start Your Own Country, by Erwin Strauss. (Get a free peek here: Tinyurl.com/ YouSovereign.) You could study it for tips on how to obtain national sovereignty, how to recruit new citizens and how to avoid paying taxes to yourself. (P.S.: You can make dramatic strides toward being the boss of yourself and your destiny even without forming your own nation.) CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): There was

a time when not even the most ambitious explorers climbed mountains. In the Western world, the first time it happened was in 1492, when a Frenchman named Antoine de Ville ascended to the top of Mont Aiguille, using ladders, ropes and other props. I see you as having a kinship with de Ville in the coming weeks, Capricorn. I’d love to see you embark on a big adventure that would involve you trying on the role of a pioneer. This feat wouldn’t necessarily require strenuous training and physical courage. It might be more about daring creativity and moral courage.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Science fiction proposes that there are alternate worlds alongside the visible one—hidden, yes, but perhaps accessible with the right knowledge or luck. In recent years, maverick physicists have given the idea more credibility, theorizing that parallel universes exist right next to ours. Even if these hypothetical places aren’t literally real, they serve as an excellent metaphor. Most of us are so thoroughly embedded in our own chosen niche that we are oblivious to the realities that other people inhabit. I bring these thoughts to your attention, Aquarius, because it’s a favorable time to tap into those alternate, parallel, secret, unknown or unofficial realms. Wake up to the rich sources that have been so close to you, but so far away. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I’m always in favor of you cultivating a robust relationship with your primal longings. But I’ll be rooting extra hard for you to do that during the next 11 months. I hope that you will dig deep to identify your primal longings, revere them as the wellspring of your life energy and figure out all of the tricks and strategies that you will need to fulfill them. Here’s a hint about how to achieve the best results as you do this noble work: Define your primal longings with as much precision as you can, so that you will never pursue passing fancies that bear just a superficial resemblance to the real things.Y Homework: Why is this a perfect moment?
