Word of James Dunn’s death earlier this week is perhaps not entirely unexpected, as the legendary Marin County theater instructor and award-winning director has been dealing with an array of health issues for years. The news is still sad, and means that (speaking selfishly) those of us who regularly attend theater productions in the area have seen our last James Dunn show. Best known for 30 years of directing the Mountain Play—for which he also served as artistic director until six years ago—Dunn has been a regular at Ross Valley Players for years. My personal favorite productions of his at the playhouse were his remarkable staging of A Few Good Men in 2007 and Journey’s End in 2014. His final production in the big red barn was last fall’s Cabaret. As for his many productions with the Mountain Play, I’ll never forget the emotional power of his spare, raucous, angrybut-beautiful Hair in 2007.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Dunn several times over the course of my own career as a North Bay arts journalist, and I can truly say that every conversation was a pleasure, a treat and an opportunity to learn something new. He was ever the gentleman, always smart as a whip, a little salty but consistently cordial, funny and kind. As a director—as I’ve heard from many actors and theater artists—he could be friendly or fatherly or dictatorial, or all three, and was a strong believer that when the rehearsal was over, the rehearsal was over. “We worked hard, we did good work, and we’re done—so don’t ask me anything about your role on the way to the parking lot,” he’d say. “You need to rest now. It’s important.” The same can now be said to Jim. You worked hard, you did good work, and you’ve earned your rest. Consider this one last standing ovation. —David Templeton

▼ True or false? Marin respects California’s sanctuary law for undocumented immigrants and doesn’t cooperate with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE). False. Right here in our liberal enclave, Marin County Sheriff Robert Doyle ignores the spirit of SB 54, the sanctuary law. When ICE requests a release date for an inmate, no matter what crime the detainee has committed, Doyle provides it. If ICE arrives to pick up the person, Doyle shows them to a private waiting area and simply hands over the noncitizen, knowing that deportation is likely. While Doyle acts callously, the Marin County Board of Supervisors is defending SB 54 against a Trump administration lawsuit. Doyle needs to get on board with Marin’s position, or he needs to go. Perhaps he’d be happier at ICE.—Nikki Silverstein

Mike McGuire’s proposed bill would shut down the North Coast Railroad Authority for good.
McGuire bill would create long-anticipated Great Redwood Trail—but there’s a $9 million catch By Tom Gogola
ast week, the California Senate unanimously passed a bill introduced by Sen. Mike McGuire that would create the long-anticipated Great Redwood Trail, extending from San Francisco Bay to Humboldt Bay.
But don’t lace those hiking boots just yet. McGuire’s proposal, SB 1029, calls for the eventual construction of a 319-mile trail from Napa and Marin counties up to Humboldt County, along railbed now maintained by the debt-wracked North Coast
Railroad Authority. The NCRA was created by the California Legislature about 30 years ago. The trail would offer hikers a path that would run through oldgrowth redwood forests, along the Russian and Eel rivers, and end at Humboldt Bay.
“[Senate Bill] 1029 sets the stage to turn this 300-mile long-suffering train track into a world-renowned trail system,” says McGuire in a statement, “that will benefit locals and visitors alike and be a boon to our local economies.” But there’s a big roadblock before
under the McGuire bill. Back in January, the CTC issued a report that drilled into the debt issue facing the NCRA and said the authority could pay off those debts through a combination of state bailouts and a renegotiated contract with the NWP Co., which was first signed in 2006 and enacted in 2011. Or it could just go the bailout route for the entire debt, the CTC wrote. “Total debts are $9.1 million,” the CTC wrote in January, “and NCRA has no liquid assets or realistic prospects of future cash flow from operations to pay off this debt, he says. Many of the liabilities are delinquent and others are vulnerable to collection demands by the creditors.” Enter McGuire, who says that the CTC estimates have spiked by upwards of another half-million dollars since January. The CTC will ultimately sign off on any deal reached to settle the NCRA debt. Under the Healdsburg senator’s bill, once its past debts are paid off, the NCRA would be dissolved, and the tracks it maintains would be split between two agencies, with a dividing line at the Mendocino County town of Willits. The tracks north of Willits would be maintained by a new entity called the Great Redwood Trail Agency. The tracks south of Willits would be managed by the Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART), which currently uses about 45 miles of railbed for its passenger trains, and has plans to eventually expand to a 70-mile corridor spanning Sonoma and Marin counties. The NWP Co. now runs freight trains along 62 miles of track, from Lombard to Windsor, and shares track with SMART. (Bosco says he’d like to extend the existing freight service north to Cloverdale, and the CTC notes that “it is likely that freight operations will be extended to Cloverdale in northern Sonoma when SMART eventually extends its services there.”) The SMART train was supposed to include a pedestrian and bike path along the whole route upon completion. According to SMART online maps, that’s a work in progress, and there are numerous stretches along the route where the promised bike and pedestrian pathway is either in progress or put off to a future date. McGuire’s bill also expands the scope of the state-created SMART
board of directors to “consider the need and financing for employee workforce housing,” as it adds another board member to the new rail agency drawn from Mendocino County. The SMART board is currently comprised of elected officials from Sonoma and Marin counties. Under McGuire’s bill, SMART would be responsible for passenger and freight service in the southern section of the right-of-way, “and will build the southern section of the Great Redwood Trail.” McGuire says his bill is supported by organizations ranging from the Sierra Club to Trout Unlimited, and that it was one of the Green California “Hot List” of must-pass bills this year. He is pitching it as a boon to a local economy to the north of Sonoma County, which now overrelies on cannabis production. And, he says, it’s supported by SMART, which pushed for the language in the bill that would create workforce housing for rail workers. “The Great Redwood Trail will be a significant economic driver for the rural North Coast communities it would wind through,” he says as he highlights the potential benefit to tourism and local economies. “California outdoor recreation is one of the fastest growing sectors of the Golden State’s economy. It generates over $92 billion a year here in California, is responsible for nearly 700,000 jobs with over $30 billion in wages, and brings over $6 billion in tax revenues back to state and local communities. The trail will attract hundreds of thousands of locals and visitors alike to hike this spectacular landscape and inject needed funds into our small, rural economies.” The newly established Great Redwood Trail Agency would have its own board of directors drawn from regional elected officials. The bad news is that it will be a while before it’s all sorted out. “We’ve always known that this will be a multi-year process,” McGuire says. The good news is that the state is now fully tuned in to the NCRA fiscal debacle and its implications. This year’s senate budget would provide $4.1 million, split between a master plan for the trail ($1.5 million) and long-overdue repairs at NCRA rail crossings ($2.6 million), which, McGuire says, have been neglected for decades.

any of that can occur. The cashstrapped NCRA is based in Ukiah, and as part of his bill, McGuire calls for the dissolution of the agency once it has paid off the estimated $9.1–$9.6 million in debt now on its books. According to the California Transportation Commission (CTC), roughly half of the debt, $4.2 million, is owed to the Northwest Pacific Company (NWP Co.), which is co-owned by former North Coast Congressman Doug Bosco. Bosco says the debt to NWP Co. is the result of the state creating the NCRA and not adequately funding it. “They never got any money from the state,” Bosco says. The NWP Co. stepped in to, among other things, pay off legal debts accrued by the NCRA over two lawsuits; one was brought by the city of Novato and cost the NCRA $750,000 in legal fees picked up by the NWP Co. The NCRA and NWP Co. are currently locked into a 99-year lease, Bosco says. Under McGuire’s bill, the NCRA is obliged to pay off its debt to the NWP Co., even as the bill calls for the dissolution of the NCRA after it has paid off all its debts. So what about that lease? “The debt would still be owed,” says Bosco, who is also an investor at Sonoma Media Investments, which owns the Press Democrat. So why doesn’t the state just come in and pay off that portion of the debt, to clear the way for this much-anticipated public use trail? “It could pay the debt if it wanted to,” Bosco says. And what’s the deal with a private company making loans to a public agency? “It’s unusual and it’s a bit concerning,” says McGuire. “It will take several years to unwind the mess that the NCRA is in,” he adds and notes that the authority will “hit a crisis point in their finances” this fall, which is why McGuire is pushing for his bill now. According to recent figures from the CTC, the NCRA also owes $2.7 million to the Federal Rail Authority on a 25-year note, which runs through 2036. And, as of January of this year, it was holding about $2.2 million in accounts payable, accrued expenses, accrued interest and other liabilities, according to the CTC, which criticized the debt-plagued authority in January for failing to come up with a plan for future solvency. The NCRA has since backed the plan for its eventual dissolution

Abalone hunting may be off limits, but spearfishing offers local divers an alternative way to catch dinner.
Tip of the Spear
Spearfishing is on the rise in local waters as abalone are off limits to recreational divers By Stett Holbrook
t’s called spearfishing, but it’s really spear-hunting. The fish don’t come to you. You must go to them, with your finger on the trigger. That fact became clear as soon as I dove beneath the surface into the 48-degree water in a picturesque cove north of Fort Ross. I’d been abalone diving before, and once I learned to regulate my breath and stay calm, finding and prying the mollusks off rocks was relatively easy. Spearfishing is different. While some fish hole up under rocks and stay put, many species are on the move, which means you have to first spot them and then
have the wherewithal to get close enough to take aim with your speargun, all before your breath gives out and you need to surface and start over again. Outfitted in a seven-millimeter wetsuit, hood, booties gloves, mask, fins and an 18-pound weight belt—and toting a menacinglooking speargun—I dove into the icy water again and again in search of my prey. But I never fired my weapon. I spotted a few rockfish darting about, but they were too small to shoot. There was no sign of the hulking lingcod I hoped to find. My visions of a grilled fish and cold beer were not to be.
It turns out spearfishing is a lot harder than diving for abalone. My dive partner, Zeke Cissell, had better luck and plunked two black rockfish. He’s the manager at Seals Watersports in Santa Rosa and a veteran diver. Seals is Santa Rosa’s outpost for spearfishing gear as well as scuba and surfing supplies. Cissell took me out last year on my first ab dive, too. While I was hunting for abalone, he was spearfishing. He enjoys the challenge and says he likes the taste of fish better than abalone. Cleaning a fish is easier than butchering an abalone, he adds. A few months after my first ab dive last year, state regulators
closed the season to recreational divers this year in hopes of helping the embattled shellfish recover. Now spearfishing is the only game in town for divers who want to capture their dinner. All you need is a regular sportfishing license. Abalone diving season usually begins in April, but according to local dive shops, interest in spearfishing is spiking as seasoned abalone divers pick up spearguns and newcomers like me take up the sport. “Fresh fish on the table is always a good excuse to get in the water,” says Marin Diving Center’s Silas Andre, noting an uptick. “If you get lucky enough to come across a nice,
9 PA CI FI C S U N | JU NE 6 - 1 2 , 2 0 1 8 | PA CI FI CSUN.CO M
legal fish, it’s kind of the icing on the cake.” Though I got skunked, I’m eager to go back. Fish or no fish, spearfishing offers passage into an underwater world most of us never get to see. While I spied precious few fish, I saw iridescent, waving anenomes, starfish and more than a few hefty abalone that will be left in peace for at least the next year, poachers notwithstanding. But mostly what I saw were purple urchins. Thousands of them carpeted the rocks like tiny cacti. The proliferation of the spiny buggers is part of the reason for the abalone’s demise. The urchins gobbled up most of the kelp, which is abalone’s primary food source. Aided by the die-off of urchineating sea stars and warming ocean temperatures, the exploding population of urchins has transformed what was an undersea garden into the equivalent of a clear-cut forest. While the underwater scene is beautiful to behold, it’s a landscape that has been transformed. Now the nacreous shells of abalone that starved to death litter the ocean floor. On Memorial Day, the Waterman’s Alliance organized an urchin gathering dive at Ocean Cove to try to collect as many urchins as possible in hopes of getting kelp to grow back and coax the abalone population back to health. Fortunately, the urchins (which are edible) have not affected the rockfish population, which Tom Stone, owner of Rohnert Park’s Sonoma Coast Divers, says is growing thanks to the creation of California’s network of marine protected areas (MPAs), zones of protected marine life and habitat. The North Central California MPA, which includes the North Bay, runs from Point Arena to Pigeon Point in San Mateo County. In addition to lingcod and black rockfish, sought-after species for spearfishing include cabezon, vermillion and sand-dwelling halibut. For newcomers like me, Cissell recommends going out with a buddy to spots with easy access, like Stillwater Cove and Fort Ross. Better yet, take a class. Sonoma Coast Divers and Petaluma’s menacingly named Red Triangle Spearfishing offer courses that teach diving and breath-holding
Spearfisherman and Seals Watersports manager Zeke Cissell proudly presents a stringer of lingcod.
techniques, as well as water safety. Parviz Boostani, co-owner of the Red Triangle, says interest in the sport is growing following the abalone ban. The shop offers a freediving (no scuba) certification class. “People still love to get out on the ocean,” he says. “The only alternative is spearfishing. It’s a different kind of hunt.” OK, what about sharks? Well, they’re out there. Stone suggests avoiding drop-offs and pinnacles where great whites sometimes lurk. Cue the John Williams score. Sharks are known to inhabit deep waters and ambush prey in shallower depths. But Stone says attacks are rare. “You’re more likely to die driving off a cliff getting up there” to Fort Ross, he says. Cissell tries to not think about sharks, given the low odds of an
encounter. Diving at shallower depths can further minimize the risk. “You don’t have to go super deep to get what’s on our coast.” Even though I was diving at 25 feet or less, I felt better facing into deeper water with the shore behind me, lest I get surprised with my back turned. “That’s the risk,” says Boostani. “You’re in their world.” Boostani likes to go deep and hunt in waters he knows are sketchy. After his friend was attacked by a shark in Monterey last year, he now wears a Shark Shield. The $500 device is worn around a diver’s ankle and sends out an electromagnetic pulse that is supposed to deter hungry sharks. “That makes me feel a heck of a lot better,” he says.
For Stone, the enjoyment that comes with spearfishing are worth the risk, especially if you go home with dinner. “Fresh seafood is more expensive than ever,” he says, Heck yeah, it is. Back in the cove with Cissell, he looked like an underwater commando with a flashlight strapped to his wrist and knife on his ankle. He uses the light to peer into dark holes and crevices in search of lunkers. “You’re looking for a pair of eyes looking back at you.” I saw no eyes. Cissell took pity on me after I came up empty-handed and gave me his fish. I got to enjoy fresh fish and cold beer after all. The fish were small, and made for great tacos. I’m hooked. Y

Zach Adelman, founder of Novato-based Navitas Organics, is dedicated to honoring a healthy lifestyle through the innovation of nutrient-dense foods.

Navitas Organics strives to keep you energized By Flora Tsapovsky
nce a buzzword on health websites, “superfood” is now a lifestyle; it’s become less and less exclusive and easier to decode. In some parts of the country, matcha is no longer a novelty, goji berries have found their way into yogurt bowls, and turmeric is painting smoothies bright yellow in more households than ever before. The superfood market is dynamic and competitive, and at times confusing, as many brands adopt otherworldly, faraway appeal and wrap their products in exotic descriptions. It might come as a surprise to some, then, that one of the biggest players in the superfoods industry is based not in Tulum or Pondicherry, but right here in Novato. Previously
known as Navitas Naturals, before undergoing a rebranding process in 2017, Navitas Organics is gradually taking over the country with its powders, snacks and blends, while operating from a local campus. It all started in 2003 with maca, a root vegetable widespread in Peru and said to have boosting effects on energy, memory and libido. Navitas Organics founder Zach Adelman, originally from Canada, started importing the powdered root, making it the inaugural Navitas product. Eventually, Adelman and his family moved to Ross, while establishing the brand in Novato. “[Novato] is a great hub for people who care about their health and wellness,” says Michelle Russell, Navitas’ brand manager. “You’re close to the city, to the suburbs, to
the beach and to the mountains, and the area really captures the clientele.” Soon, products like Japanese matcha, hemp and cacao nibs followed, as well as the now-trendy breakfast star, acai powder, the barely sweet lucuma and the newest craze out of Colombia, the tart golden berry, impossible to stop snacking on. The newest addition comes in the form of blends, meant to be used quickly and on the go. “We’re starting to move into a more conventional type of space, toward the Target and Safeway shopper and not just Whole Foods and health stores, and giving them an easy way to be introduced to snacks,” Russell says. Other novelties include dates-based bars and nut mixes. On the company’s 44,000-follower Instagram account, photogenic juices, bountiful bowls and
colorful salads can be found; all are, of course, staples of the #eatclean world, but there are also superfood-powered hamburgers, seed-sprinkled tartines and ice cream decorated with pomegranate seeds. When you find ice cream in the mix, you know that the conversation has gone mainstream. “We’re really seeing people getting more familiar with superfoods in general, although there’s still a lot of confusion,” Russell says. “Everyone has heard of kale and blueberries, and maybe less people have heard of golden berries.” On the company’s website, extensive information can be found about each powder and seed, including how to use the occasionally obscure product. Recipes and tips appear as well. The “healthy” aspect doesn’t stop at packets and sachets; Navitas holds a B Corporation certificate, given exclusively to companies able to meet certain standards of social and environmental accountability and transparency. Though not all Navitas products are made locally—they are, rather, produced in the areas the foods are native to—the company partners directly with small farms through A Growing Culture, an organization supporting smallholder farms and faro-trade processes. On the Novato campus, where products are developed, marketed and branded, employees can be often found meditating, practicing yoga or hiking far away from the spreadsheets. “We really practice what we preach,” Russell says with a laugh. “We train with trainers, we can participate in CycleBar in Novato, someone comes and teaches us how to dance salsa.” Employees are also encouraged to volunteer in the local community, around food and environmental initiatives; when the Sonoma fires struck, Navitas supplied first responders with nutritious snacks. More recently, the company supported the Conscious Kitchen, a healthy school meals organization, by bringing 15 employees to prepare and plant the garden at Bayside Martin Luther King Jr. Academy in Marin City, to be used directly for the school lunch program. On other occasions, workers volunteer with the Marin Food Bank. All of this activity ties into the brand philosophy; superfoods, as they evolve into everyday foods, are primarily a lifestyle choice, not without commitment to larger goals. If, however, all you have time for is sprinkling chia on your yogurts, Navitas has you covered.Y Navitas Organics; navitasorganics.com.

Novato-based Adobe Creek Brewing was born in a garage; today, its beer is sold to bars around the Bay Area.
SPOTLIGHT ON NOVATO
Hop Forward Adobe Creek Brewing experiments with small batches By Tanya Henry
ike many millennials, Jonathan MacDonald looked to the internet for information, guidance and skill-building to start his Adobe Creek Brewing business. Even his logo was developed through an online contest. The 29-year-old Novato resident caught the beer-brewing bug when his sister and mother gave him a homebrewing kit in 2012. By March of 2017, he had sold his first keg of IPA. MacDonald grew up in Los Altos and went off to study at the University of Colorado’s Leeds School of Business in Boulder. When he returned home, he began making beer in his parent’s garage. Adobe Creek, which runs near his family’s home, provided inspiration for the beer’s name. When the aspiring brewer decided to get serious about the craft, he looked for warehouse space and found a spot in Novato that had room for one stainless steel tank—or as he refers to his operation, “a one-barrel brewhouse.”
MacDonald has produced 25 different brews, and not surprisingly, many are IPA-style. “I like hoppy beers,” he says. Derealization Pale Ale, brewed with massive amounts of flaked grains for a smooth mouthfeel, is his most popular. MacDonald uses hops from Australia, which offer tropical notes like passion fruit and pineapple. Along with fruitforward IPAs, Adobe also makes a blonde ale and both light and dark Mexican-style lagers. For now, Adobe Creek Brewing is only producing kegs and selling them directly to bars in the Bay Area. Eventually, MacDonald hopes to expand his production and perhaps one day open a taproom. His hoppy IPAs and other flavorpacked styles can be found at Pint Size Lounge in San Rafael, Tamal and 123 Bolinas in Fairfax, Pig in a Pickle in Corte Madera and Bicycle Brüstop in Novato.Y adobecreekbrewing.com.

Marin Shakespeare Company offers a revival of ‘Hamlet’ that puts a young spin on the moral issues Shakespeare tackled hundreds of years ago.
Youthful Vibe Marin Shakespeare Company refreshes ‘Hamlet’ By Charles Brousse
n his opening-night, pre-show banter with the audience, Marin Shakespeare Company (MSC) artistic director Robert Currier observed that many believe Hamlet is the greatest play ever written. That covers a lot of ground, but I’m bound to agree. No other work for the stage is its equal in examining what it means to be human, using language that is both dramatically rich and unbelievably beautiful. Similarly, the role of the disaffected Danish prince is considered the Mount Everest for young male actors. Many start the climb, but few
reach the top. Over the years, I’ve seen a number of great performances— most on stage, a few on film. As I look back, it strikes me that each of these productions embodies the spirit of the era in which it was presented. So where does MSC’s latest venture fit in? In a post-show telephone conversation, probably aware that some eyebrows might be raised by casting his 26-year-old son Nate in the title role, Currier père said his intention was to refresh the revival by giving the whole project a youthful vibe. He wanted his staging of the play to be a vibrant, energetic expression
of how our world deals with the moral issues that Shakespeare tackled 400 years ago. With that in mind, he could think of no other local actor better suited for the part than his son, who was the right age and had been immersed in the Shakespeare canon from the time he was a mewling infant. The irony is that, to the degree that the production fulfills the director’s “now” concept, it lessens the play’s original brilliance. Rod Gnapp, who is often terrific in roles that suit him, picks his way through the Shakespearean cadences at an agonizingly slow
speed. Arwen Anderson’s Gertrude, his recently wed queen, is more a one-dimensional, nicely turnedout fashion model than the caring mom who agonizes over her divided loyalties. Polonius, the king’s advisor and Ophelia and Laertes’ father, usually played by a kindly old fellow who tries hard to be useful and advises his son “to thine own self be true,” is offhandedly portrayed by Steve Price. Talia Friedenberg’s Ophelia is more the robust California girl than the emotionally delicate object of Prince Hamlet’s fleeting affection. In keeping with the spirit of the production, you might expect her to at least be thinking, “Get lost, buster!” when her erstwhile boyfriend tells her to join a nunnery; instead, she provides a rousing rendition of “The Willow Song” before jumping into a nearby marsh. In another irony, Barry Kraft, the eldest and most experienced actor in the group, provides much of the show’s momentum in his various roles. Brennan Pickman-Thoon (Horatio), Hunter Scott MacNair (Laertes) and the remaining ensemble also offer solid support. Back to Nate Currier. There’s no question that he’s a promising young actor, with good diction, handsome looks and instinctive stage sense. But from the moment he climbs up on stage from his seat in the audience— wearing a long black coat, with hair streaming wildly—he embodies the ethos of many male teenagers in the millennial generation: the physical slouch, the flat delivery that sometimes races over Shakespeare’s powerful speeches, the mercurial mood changes and hissy fits. Beneath the surface, of course, lies the anxiety that the world is coming apart, visually suggested by the jumbled chaos of Jackson Currier’s scenic design, Tammy Berlin’s assortment of unrelated costumes and the decidedly un-theatrical lighting design by April George that fails to accent the show’s most dramatic moments. All of this may indicate that MSC’s production has captured the spirit of our time, with its multiple uncertainties and threats. Unfortunately, that doesn’t provide the energy the production is seeking, or make it a particularly comfortable fit with “the greatest play ever written.”Y NOW PLAYING: Hamlet runs through July 8 at the Forest Meadows Amphitheatre, Dominican University, San Rafael. 415.499.4488. marinshakespeare.org.
Blues Wonder Taj Mahal wants to see you dance By Charlie Swanson
or Taj Mahal, the blues is life. “It’s a living music to me, and it will always live because people will always have this kind of distortion in their life where they need something to help them,” Mahal says. “Blues covers all facets of life, from the worst to the best.” Mahal reflects that sentiment by covering all facets of the blues. Anyone who’s followed the guitarist for the last 50 years can attest to the way his innovative blend of Afro-Caribbean jazz, reggae and world music has pushed the boundaries of blues. “Music has been a part of my culture for centuries, and I’m joining in on the version of it that happens here and making sure I stay connected to all the other relatives,” he says. From the beginning, Mahal made it his mission to play with as many different people as he could, and growing up around jazz in Harlem, he notes that music transcended race and culture. Born Henry Saint Clair Fredericks, he adopted the stage name Taj Mahal in 1959 after dreaming of Gandhi and learning of the social tolerance movements in India. Mahal’s having one of his best years yet. In January, he
won the Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album for his 2017 collaborative LP with Keb’ Mo’, called TajMo. Mahal was also honored as the B.B. King Entertainer of the Year and Acoustic Artist of the Year at the 2018 Blues Music Awards in Nashville. Mahal makes his way back to Johnson’s Beach in Guerneville this weekend for the Russian River Jazz & Blues Festival on June 10, in conjunction with the Johnson’s Beach Feel Good Party on June 9. “It’s one of the big West Coast festivals that I like to get a call from,” says Mahal. “I run into people I don’t get to see, and it’s a great audience, a great venue and grounds.” In addition to the Taj Mahal Trio, this year’s Russian River Blues Fest features the Robert Cray Band, Eric Burdon & the Animals and Elvin Bishop’s Big Fun Trio. “We’re coming to play and to see you dance,” Mahal says. “The more dancing, the happier we are.” Y Johnson’s Beach Feel Good Party and Russian River Blues Festival happen Saturday and Sunday, June 9–10, at Johnson’s Beach, Guerneville. $60 and up. russianriverfestivals.com.

In a new film, Academy Award–winning director Morgan Neville focuses on the kind ideas of the beloved host of ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.’ The perfect pairing.
Hi, Neighbor Touching documentary looks back on legacy of Fred Rogers By Richard von Busack
efore he became the host of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Fred Rogers was the last face many an enemy of America ever saw. His expertise in handto-hand combat sent scores of Nazis to Valhalla. Behind the calm facade, there was a battle-scarred commando wracked by flashbacks. Once, Rogers attacked Henrietta Pussycat while roaring, “Why won’t you die, Kraut?” As Morgan Neville’s Won’t You Be My Neighbor? demonstrates, the above paragraph is a gratuitous lie, justifiable only because it is something people want to believe. Proof: 5 million hits on Google for the search string “Mr. Rogers Navy SEAL.” Years after his death in 2003, we still can’t believe that Rogers was really that big of a marshmallow. If Rogers never saw combat, he demonstrated a different bravery,
putting himself out there as the one adult in the world who would never belittle a kid. His success defied the belief, as an interviewee in Neville’s film puts it, that “there isn’t room for a nice person on TV.” Neville (20 Feet from Stardom) uses borrowed music from Michael Nyman’s soundtrack to the unneighborly movie The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover to put the viewer into a somber mood. It gets more poignant than a Lassie movie. There was the time Rogers brought out that tragic, worn Daniel Tiger hand puppet after RFK’s last night at the Ambassador Hotel, 50 years ago. The worried tigerlet asked pretty Lady Aberlin (Betty Aberlin) what the word “assassination” meant. And it gets sadder. Rogers used silence and negative space to soothe children, once going mute on the air for 60 seconds to show a child
how long a minute was. In between the thousands of hours of cozy time spent with the puppets and the goldfish, his guests were everything from a child with spina bifida to a boy whose cat was killed by a car. Neville suggests that poor Daniel is a part of Rogers—with animation of the fearful tiger alone, as the host describes his solitary childhood. What little is said of Rogers’ own youth is that he was sick a lot, scorned as “Fat Freddy.” Home movies show a kid, well-dressed and plump, who would be a bully’s dream. It was Rogers’ pride that he got his weight down to 143 lbs, where it stayed for decades. On the set he was as much in charge as King Friday XIII; significantly, Rogers introduced the puppet on the air as “one of the few remaining benevolent despots.” The best people have the worst consciences. We hear evidence of Rogers’ night thoughts about his own salvation, and the continuing toughness of what he was trying to do in letters to his wife. (“After all these years, it’s just as bad as ever.”) A lifelong Republican, Rogers had enough belief in the importance of educational television that he won over a Senate hearing trying to defund PBS. Particularly valuable input comes from a dashiki-wearing François Clemens, who played the neighborhood’s policeman. On camera, Rogers shared a footbath with Clemens at a time when black people were being evicted from white swimming pools. Through Clemens, we can see the limits of Rogers’ tolerance—Clemens was warned to stay out of gay bars while he was on the show. Perhaps we can take this man’s word that the only things in Rogers’ closet were his sweaters. Rogers’ almost ominous sincerity was a subject for numerous parodies. As a Presbyterian preacher, Rogers approached the long-running task of beguiling preschoolers as his ministry. In his televised farewell, shortly after 9-11, Rogers cited the importance of trying to be the “tikkun olam,” the Jewish phrase for people trying to heal the world. Today’s viewers will feel chastened watching this, having forgotten the importance of civility during a furious and divisive age. Neville makes this an inspiring study of the friend of millions of children—perhaps insufficiently appreciated in his time, but respected in ours.Y

By Amy Alkon
My boyfriend of two years read my diary and found out that I had expressed feelings for another guy while we were together. I never acted on them (and I wouldn’t have), and I probably shouldn’t have told the guy I liked him. But my boyfriend shouldn’t have been reading my diary! He broke up with me, saying he wouldn’t be able to forgive me. Now he wants to come back. What should I do? I don’t feel that I can trust him now.—Disturbed
Having regular sex with you does not give another person the right to rake through your diary like it’s the $1 bin at Goodwill. Your boyfriend probably equated your approaching this other guy with an attempt to cheat, but it sounds like it was something different—a sort of preliminary investigation into whether you had any chance with that guy. It turns out that we have a sort of inner auditing department that gets triggered to calculate whether “the one!!!” should maybe be that other one. Accordingly, research by evolutionary psychologists Joshua Duntley and David Buss and their colleagues suggests that we evolved to cultivate romantic understudies—backup mates whom we can quickly slot in as partners if our partner, say, dies, ditches us or their “mate value” suddenly takes a dive. What else might trigger going for—or at least testing the waters with—a backup mate? Well, though you didn’t have sex with this other guy, it seems instructive to look at why women tend to have affairs. Research by the late psychologist Shirley Glass finds that women view seeking love and emotional intimacy as the most compelling justification for cheating. (Seventy-seven percent of women surveyed saw this as a compelling reason to have an affair, compared with only 43 percent of the men. Men were more likely to see sexual excitement as a compelling justification to stray—with 75 percent of the men, versus 53 percent of the women, giving that reason.) As for whether you should take your boyfriend back, the question is: What was missing that led you to try to trade up, and is it still missing? We’re prone to want to keep putting time and energy into things we’ve already put time and energy into, but the way to judge whether something’s actually worthwhile is to assess how well it’s likely to pay off in the future. If you feel (and act) more certain about your partner, he is less likely to have mateguarding impulses triggered (like the temptation to snoop). However, if you do get back together with this guy, privacy rules need to be spelled out—and followed.
My husband and I were visiting friends, and he started walking around their house flossing his teeth. I told him this is not OK, but I couldn’t really tell him why. Could you please explain why it’s not appropriate to go around flossing so I can tell him and get him to stop?!—Embarrassed
What’s next, margaritas and oral surgery on the deck? Locking doors didn’t get added to bathrooms as some sort of design quirk. Most of the behaviors that we perform in bathrooms aren’t all that audience-friendly—which is surely why we don’t see Netflix specials like Mr. Jones Takes a Poo. Though that activity, like flossing, has health benefits, the rest of us don’t need to bear witness. In fact, we’re grossed-out if we have to—and we seem to have evolved to feel that way. Evolutionary psychologist Joshua M. Tybur, who researches disgust, explains that our capacity for getting grossed-out seems to help us avoid disease-causing microorganisms, which could put a crimp in our being able to survive and pass on our genes. Disgust basically acts as a psychological “Keep Out!” sign when we encounter things that could infect us, like bodily fluids, spoiled foods, insects, rodents and dead bodies. Whether disgust is likely to be triggered is actually the perfect guideline for whether some behavior is a no-go in public. Y Worship the goddess—or sacrifice her at the altar at email@example.com. Amy Alkon is offering a reading/signing/Q&A for her new ‘science-help’ book, ‘Unf *ckology: A Field Guide to Living with Guts and Confidence,’ on Tues., June 12, at Book Passage, 1 Ferry Building, San Francisco, 6-7:30pm; bookpassage.com.
For the week of June 6
ARIES (March 21–April 19) According to my
analysis of the astrological omens, you would be wise to ruffle and revise your relationship with time. It would be healthy for you to gain more freedom from its relentless demands; to declare at least some independence from its oppressive hold on you; to elude its push to impinge on every move you make. Here’s a ritual you could do to spur your imagination: smash a timepiece. I mean that literally. Go to the store and invest $20 in a hammer and alarm clock. Take them home and vociferously apply the hammer to the clock in a holy gesture of pure, righteous chastisement. Who knows? This bold protest might trigger some novel ideas about how to slip free from the imperatives of time for a few stolen hours each week.
TAURUS (April 20–May 20) Promise me
that you won’t disrespect, demean or neglect your precious body in the coming weeks. Promise me that you will treat it with tender compassion and thoughtful nurturing. Give it deep breaths, pure water, healthy and delicious food, sweet sleep, enjoyable exercise and reverential sex. Such veneration is always recommended, of course—but it’s especially crucial for you to attend to this noble work during the next four weeks. It’s time to renew and revitalize your commitment to your soft warm animal self.
GEMINI (May 21–June 20) Between 1967 and 1973, NASA used a series of Saturn V rockets to deliver six groups of American astronauts to the moon. Each massive vehicle weighed about 6.5 million pounds. The initial thrust required to launch it was tremendous. Gas mileage was seven inches per gallon. Only later, after the rocket flew farther from the grip of Earth’s gravity, did the fuel economy improve. I’m guessing that in your own life, you may be experiencing something like that seven-inchesper-gallon feeling right now. But I guarantee you won’t have to push this hard for long. CANCER (June 21–July 22) Mars, the planet that rules animal vitality and instinctual enthusiasm, will cruise through your astrological House of Synergy for much of the next five months. That’s why I’ve concluded that between now and mid-November, your experience of togetherness can and should reach peak expression. Do you want intimacy to be robust and intense, sometimes bordering on rambunctious? It will be if you want it to be. Adventures in collaboration will invite you to wander out to the frontiers of your understanding about how relationships work best. LEO (July 23–August 22) Which astrological
sign laughs hardest and longest and most frequently? I’m inclined to speculate that Sagittarius deserves the crown, with Leo and Gemini fighting it out for second place. But having said that, I suspect that in the coming weeks you Leos could rocket to the top of the chart, vaulting past Sagittarians. Not only are you likely to find everything funnier than usual; I bet you will also encounter more than the usual number of authentically humorous and amusing experiences. (P.S.: I hope you won’t cling too fiercely to your dignity, because that would interfere with your full enjoyment of the cathartic cosmic gift.)
VIRGO (August 23–September 22) According
to my analysis of the astrological omens, a little extra egotism might be healthy for you right now. A surge of super-confidence would boost your competence; it would also fine-tune your physical well-being and attract an opportunity that might not otherwise find its way to you. So, for example, consider the possibility of renting a billboard on which you put a giant photo of yourself with a tally of your accomplishments and a list of your demands. The cosmos and I won’t have any problem with you bragging more than usual or asking for more goodies than you’re usually content with.
LIBRA (September 23–October 22) The coming weeks will be a favorable time for happy endings to sad stories, and for the emergence of efficient solutions to convoluted riddles. I bet it will also be a phase when you can perform some seemingly
By Rob Brezsny
clumsy magic that dispatches a batch of awkward karma. Hooray! Hallelujah! Praise Goo! But now listen to my admonition, Libra: the coming weeks won’t be a good time to toss and turn in your bed all night long thinking about what you might have done differently in the month of May. Honor the past by letting it go.
SCORPIO (October 23–November 21) “Dear
Dr. Astrology: In the past four weeks, I have washed all 18 of my underpants four times. Without exception, every single time, each item has been inside-out at the end of the wash cycle. This is despite the fact that most of them were not inside-out when I threw them in the machine. Does this weird anomaly have some astrological explanation?—Upside-Down Scorpio.” Dear Scorpio: Yes. Lately your planetary omens have been rife with reversals, inversions, flip-flops and switchovers. Your underpants situation is a symptom of the bigger forces at work. Don’t worry about those bigger forces, though. Ultimately, I think you’ll be glad for the renewal that will emerge from the various turnabouts.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21) As I sat down to meditate on your horoscope, a hummingbird flew in my open window. Scrambling to herd it safely back outside, I knocked my iPad on the floor, which somehow caused it to open a link to a YouTube video of an episode of the TV game show Wheel of Fortune, where the hostess, Vanna White, garbed in a long red gown, revealed that the word puzzle solution was “USE IT OR LOSE IT.” So what does this omen mean? Maybe this: you’ll be surprised by a more-or-less delightful interruption that compels you to realize that you had better start taking greater advantage of a gift or blessing that you’ve been lazy or slow to capitalize on. CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19)
You’re in a phase when you’ll be smart to bring more light and liveliness into the work you do. To spur your efforts, I offer the following provocations. 1. “When I work, I relax. Doing nothing makes me tired.”—Pablo Picasso. 2. “Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don’t recognize them.”—Ann Landers. 3. “Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.”— Aristotle. 4. “Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.” —Scott Adams. 5.“Working hard and working smart can sometimes be two different things.”—Byron Dorgan. 6. “Don’t stay in bed unless you can make money in bed.”— George Burns. 7.“Thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is lightning that does the work.”—Mark Twain.
AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18) “There isn’t enough of anything as long as we live,” said poet and short-story writer Raymond Carver. “But at intervals a sweetness appears and, given a chance, prevails.” My reading of the astrological omens suggests that the current phase of your cycle is one of those intervals, Aquarius. In light of this grace period, I have some advice for you, courtesy of author Anne Lamott: “You weren’t born a person of cringe and contraction. You were born as energy, as life, made of the same stuff as stars, blossoms, breezes. You learned contraction to survive, but that was then.” Surrender to the sweetness, dear Aquarius. PISCES (February 19–March 20) Between
you and your potential new power spot is an imaginary 10-foot-high, electrified fence. It’s composed of your least charitable thoughts about yourself and your rigid beliefs about what’s impossible for you to accomplish. Is there anything you can do to deal with this inconvenient illusion? I recommend that you call on Mickey Rat, the cartoon superhero in your dreams who knows the difference between destructive destruction and creative destruction.
