Train spatting Meyers to NCRA: This is no way to run a railroad! by Pe te r Se i d m an

A

fter serving six years on the board of the North Coast Railroad Authority, Bernie Meyers has decided to end his tenure on the board. Meyers, a longtime critic of NCRA and its arrangement with the Northwestern Pacific Railroad, presented North Coast board members with a strongly worded 4,400-word position statement outlining his thoughts about the past, present and future direction at the rail agency. He also presented an extensive question-and-answer statement to board members that delineates his thoughts, mostly critical, on issues he says the rail agency has stumbled over in the past as well as faces in the future. Meyers, a veteran of the Novato City Council who served as mayor of that town in 1995 and 2005, appeared before the Marin County Board of Supervisors this week, where he submitted copies of the position statement and the question-andanswer statement. The board acknowledged Meyers service on the rail agency with a commendation that states in part, “For six years Bernie carefully and thoroughly went through all aspects of NCRA’s budget looking out for taxpayers’ money and insisting on public review.” That’s an understatement. It’s not unfair to characterize Meyers as a thorn in the side of the rail agency. His tenure on the board, especially in his last few years, was marked by strong criticism of the rail agency and its lease with Northwestern Pacific, an arrangement he has called “a sweetheart deal” with insufficient benefit to the public. The supervisors will appoint another Marin resident to take Meyers’ seat on the rail agency board. Jerry Peters will remain on the board of the nine-member organization; he’s the second board member from Marin. The California Legislature formed the North Coast Railroad Authority in 1989 as part of an effort to ensure continued viability of railroad transportation in the state. A companion bill passed both houses of the Legislature and would have provided funds to create rail transit on the proposed line, but Gov. George Deukmejian vetoed the legislation, leaving North Coast Railroad Authority as an unfunded mandate. It also left the NCRA with an idea for a railroad but no actual railroad. That didn’t make it easy to attract an operator to run actual freight. After looking for a railroad operator, NCRA cut a deal with Northwestern Pacific in 2006. North Coast Railroad 6 Pacific Sun november 1 - november 7, 2013

Authority agreed to a 25-year lease with Northwestern Pacific (NWP) that allows NWP to renew for up to 100 years. Meyers has called attention to the terms of the lease for years, especially the section covering payments to the rail agency: “NWP shall make annual lease payments in the amount of 20 percent of its net income, commencing the first year after NWP has generated positive net income in excess of $5 million.” Meyers says the lease arrangement lacks any meaningful oversight. Meyers has continually called attention to the lease, which he says is lopsided in favor of Northwestern Pacific. He also points a questioning finger at the relationship between Northwestern Pacific and NCRA Executive Director Mitch Stogner. Meyers isn’t the only one who questions the relationship between the railroad authority and NWP. To start with, John Williams, the CEO of Northwestern Pacific, is a former executive director of NCRA. Doug Bosco, former congressman representing the North Coast, joined Williams as an investor and NWP legal counsel. Stogner worked for Bosco as an aide when Bosco was in Congress. No wrongdoing has been documented. But critics of the lease between NCRA and Northwestern Pacific still question whether the deal should have merited oversight. Then there’s the AP story: Critics cite a 2001 piece that recounts how Gray Davis was in the governor’s office when the state funneled $60 million to reopen the Northwestern Pacific line. Shortly after the state decided to pour money into the effort, shippers, who stood the most to gain, contributed more than $60,000 to Davis’ campaign fund. Perhaps not wrongdoing—but critics say it’s an example of how influence works. Critics also point out that in exchange for that $60 million, the rail guys agreed to produce an environmental report. Later, after two environmental groups sued, saying the EIR was inadequate, NCRA and NWP said they really didn’t have to produce an environmental report. Federal law regulates trains, they said, and trumps state environmental requirements under the California Environmental Quality Act. That case, after winding its way through the courts, is still active. A Marin Superior Court ruled in May that the two environmental groups, Friends of the Eel River and Californians for Alternatives to Toxics, have no standing on which to sue. The court also affirmed the doctrine that federal law supersedes state law when it comes to trains. The environmental 8 >

Visit heroesofmarin.eventbrite.com. —Jason Walsh Marin Realtors chief resigns Edward Segal, longtime head of the Marin Association of Realtors, is jumping to the 310 area code—and taking the reins of the Beverly Hills/Greater Los Angeles Association of Realtors. Segal had been the CEO of the 1,400-member MAR for 10 years. His new L.A. association boasts 7,000 members. Segal calls it an “honor and privilege” to have lead the Marin real estate group. “I’ve been fortunate to work with a series of dedicated and hardworking volunteer leaders in Marin who understood and appreciated the importance of advocacy, public relations and political fundraising,” Segal says. Among his accomplishments, according to MAR officials, is keeping the organization on sound financial footing, waging successful lobbying campaigns on issues affecting the real estate market, and boosting member contributions to the industry’s political action fund. Segal previously worked in Washington, D.C., as a public relations consultant, lobbyist and press secretary to members of Congress, according to a statement from MAR. “Edward will be greatly missed,” said MAR president Jack Wilkinson. —JW

▲ From no-rags to riches, Marin’s only marching band is making great strides in 2013. Davidson Middle School in San Rafael began the band last year without much fanfare or funding. Although students worked hard to learn the music and master marching and playing together, they had no uniforms and came in last in both competitions they entered. This year (trumpet blare, please), the students are styling in full marching band regalia and earned first-place honors at a recent competition. Music teacher Dana Trillo is instrumental in the band’s success, buying bargain-priced uniforms from a school shedding its former duds, and working extra hours with his winning ensemble. The band still needs $2,000 to finish paying for the uniforms. Donate at www.razoo.com/story/Davidson-MiddleSchool-Band-Uniforms.

▼ Isn’t smoking so ’90s? Nasty smells, lung cancer and littered butts are definitely out of vogue in Marin. No wonder that Scott Smith, of San Anselmo, was stunned when he was driving behind a silver BMW Z4 convertible and watched the driver throw a lit cigarette out the window. Both sides of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard had plenty of dry leaves in the gutter, right near where the smoking butt landed.

Gumby was made,” Ken explains. “I gave her the full tour. It was like being in Santa’s workshop.” With the Gumby expedition finished, Susan and Ken got in his car to go to dinner. Of course, he played his special seduction tape on their drive to Mama’s in Mill Valley. (Yep, it was open for dinner back then.) Ken paid the entire tab with two-dollar bills, which Susan found boyishly cute. “I had every step of this dating thing down like a Nazi scientist,” Ken said and laughed. They followed dinner with a drink at what was probably O’Leary’s in downtown Mill Valley, at the spot occupied today by Vasco’s. Both felt a palpable desperation in the other, but they were having a nice evening and decided not to pay it any mind. Decorum was kept throughout the date and physical contact avoided until the long, but chaste goodnight kiss. Before they parted, the couple made plans for the next weekend. Susan and Ken spent the following week extricating themselves from all romantic entanglements. It wasn’t discussed during the first date, but they knew that this might turn into something. The real thing. Love, commitment, marriage, a home and two feisty dogs. With a wonderful life hanging in the balance, they went in to the next date completely unencumbered. Excellent planning, because it lasted all weekend. They’ve been together ever since. “When we went in to put our memberships on hold after the second date, a woman had picked me,” Ken said with sheer delight. The other woman never had a chance. Ken and Susan made the perfect couple and wedding bells soon rang. Oh, and those expensive Great Expectation memberships? Ken gave his to his friend Dave. Susan gave hers to Ken’s sister. Regrettably, the recipients didn’t fare as well our favorite couple. For 25 years now, Ken and Susan have kept their charmed relationship thriving. She puts up with him singing karaoke, dressing in wild costumes year-round and having an outrageous sense of humor. Somehow, he’s managed to accept her exquisite beauty, saintlike patience and giving nature. Ken insists he’s the most fortunate guy ever and Susan is sure she’s the luckiest gal alive. They’re both right. ✹ Email: nikki_silverstein@yahoo.com

by Nik k i Silve rste in ue to my terrible cold that I’m sure will last the rest of my life, I missed our last meeting and left you with a cliffhanger. I apologize. Without further ado, let’s quickly review part one of our fascinating story about my favorite couple who shared their meeting with myself and other guests at a dinner party—and then continue on to the conclusion. Ken Pontac and Susan Linton (their real names) both joined Great Expectations in Sausalito in 1988. The old-fashioned dating service predated the Internet. Members visited the physical building, located where Kinko’s now stands on Bridgeway, to peruse profiles and videos of potential mates. Susan was too busy to pick anyone, though she made the mandatory pilgrimage to Great Expectations each month to decline her many invitations from eligible bachelors. Ken, a unique man, selected dozens of women, but none of them appreciated his quirkiness, exceptional humor and porn moustache. He remained rejected and dejected day after day. Eventually, Susan’s quasi-relationship with an undeserving man took an annoying turn and it seemed the perfect time to stop by Great Expectations to assess her suitors. The first one on the long list was Ken. Susan accepted his request and Ken was notified. Initially, he forgot who she was, but remembered in a flash when he was shown the photo of the beautiful, blonde nurse. Good beginning, right? Now that we’ve reviewed part one, we’ll get back to the dinner party where Susan and Ken shared their story. “Ken was the first and only person that I said yes to,” Susan said. “And, Susan was the only one that said yes to me,” Ken chimed in. “It was kismet-y.” Susan wasn’t bothered by Ken’s gaudy moustache or his male-pattern baldness. In fact, she found his Great Expectations video interesting and entertaining. Most members chose the standard Alpine village or Hawaiian sunset for the background of their video interviews. Ken’s coworkers at the Gumby TV show helped create his imaginative backdrop, which featured Captain Ken’s Fun & Puzzle Page. Once Ken learned Susan said yes to him, he didn’t waste a moment. He called her right away and made a date for the upcoming weekend. Although the dating service advised members to meet in a safe, public place, Susan agreed to meet Ken in a deserted warehouse full of creepy puppets. “I thought she wanted to see where

< 6 Train spatting groups have appealed. The suit could have a major impact on the long-term success of Northwestern Pacific. The railroad currently runs a modest number of rail cars on 62 miles of track between Windsor and Napa County. Northwestern Pacific says it wants to run from Samoa, near Arcata in the north part of the state, down through Marin and Novato and on to Schellville, where the line connects with the national freight rail system. The rail line serves mostly ranchers now, but critics say the real money is at Island Mountain in Trinity County. Between 1914 and 1930 substantial amounts of copper, silver and gold were mined there, and the area still has untold tons of valuable aggregate. Trains could haul that aggregate to market. Northwestern Pacific says it has no immediate intentions of extending its tracks north to tap Island Mountain riches, but critics just don’t believe the pronouncement. The environmental groups worry because the rail agency and NWP completed an EIR that investigated only the southern section of rail line and rehabilitating track

and running trains to the north, to Island Mountain, would do severe environmental damage. In leaving the board with his parting communications, Meyers criticized the way the North Coast Railroad Authority interacts with board members—or fails to interact. “The NCRA is run by two members of its staff, and they play their cards pretty close to their vests. The board has very little time in which to make a decision and insufficient input on which to make a decision.” As with many jointpowers agencies, the NCRA board has members that come and go. That leads to a staggered institutional memory. “As I leave the board, there are only three of us that have been there the six years that I have been there. One person on the board has been there only a few months. When I joined the board, what did I receive? A packet telling me everything that went on? No. I received the environmental consent decree [between the state and NCRA], and I received the lease. That’s it.” Meyers says an insufficient institutional memory at NCRA is a big reason why he produced

State sets day to honor ‘old lesbian’ A state Senate resolution honored Joan Emerson, of Mill Valley, this fall for her 18 years of volunteer service as coordinator of Old Lesbians Organizing for Change (OLOC). The resolution, sponsored by Senator Mark Leno, declared Sept. 22 as Joan Emerson Day. “Joan Emerson has improved the quality of life within the San Francisco Bay area community and has built the OLOC into the most vital chapter in the country,” he said, and further, “Joan has continued to enrich the old lesbian community’s approach to aging by adding a new focus on community building for old lesbians, in addition to the longstanding goal of combating Joan Emerson, right, with partner Jan Couvillon. ageism.” Emerson was the subject of a Pacific Sun profile in November 2012. —Joanne Williams Interim creekside ordinance approved The Marin County Board of Supervisors ended a court-imposed creekside building ban in the San Geronimo Valley this week, when it voted 3-0 to approve an interim ordinance regulating construction on more than 3,000 properties in West Marin. The new creekside building rules will tighten the reins on bigger projects, particularly those nearest creek banks where vegetation growth is dense—vegetation acts as a much needed cooling system for the depleted coho salmon that inhabit the valley’s watershed. “Yays” were from Kate Sears, Susan Adams and Judy Arnold; Steve Kinsey and Katie Rice were recused from the vote—Kinsey lives near a creek, while Rice was recused at random to ensure a three-Supe vote. The Supes’ approval comes with a $215,000 work program and public relations campaign to educate residents about the interim rules. —JW 8 Pacific Sun november 1 - november 7, 2013

the lengthy position statement as well as the question-and-answer statement. Meyers says the time has come to leave the board after trying to make a concerted effort to produce change. “I think the NCRA should be a viable organization in charge of the shortline railroad. My being on the board didn’t seem to achieve that in the six years I was there, and certainly not in the last year or two or three. I can’t understand why another two years [the term of board members] in that position would get me any further.” There’s always been tension between Marin and the counties to the north about differing methods of running a railroad agency and a railroad. The city of Novato sued over what it said was the inadequate environmental report because the report failed to take into account effects of running trains through town on the way to Napa County. The city and the rail guys settled after an agreement was reached about quiet zones. The North Coast Railroad Authority needs a healthy dose of transparency, according to Meyers, a prescription not evident at the moment. In Meyers’ estimation, a poor NCRA attitude affects the public’s right to know in Marin about what happens at the rail agency. The board is supposed to hold rotating meetings in the four counties it represents. “It hasn’t met in Marin all year,” says Meyers, which shows you the disdain the board has for Marin County.” In leaving the board, Meyers plants a suggestion of how to ensure that the arrangement between the railroad authority and Northwestern Pacific Railroad truly benefits the public—rather than just the rail guys as well as ranchers along the line who get their freight hauled. He calls on the NCRA board to ask a member of the Legislature, possibly and notably Marc Levine (who represents Marin) to ask the state Joint Legislative Audit Committee to look at NCRA and NWP and the rail line to determine if anything should change to better the public’s benefit. An alternative, says Meyers, would be to ask for an outside independent and unbiased study “to tell [the board] if what they have set up here is fiscally prudent and whether it will redound to the public benefit or not.” * * * * *

The questions-and-answer statement Meyers presented to the NCRA board and to Marin supervisors includes many other issues. Needless to say, other board members and officials at the railroad authority and NPW have views divergent from those of Meyers. Here’s a sampling of Meyers’ Q&A: How do the lease terms compare with similar leases between state railroad entities and private operators? Not favorably. Generally, others are for terms of between five and 20 years, with possible renewals if conditions are met. For example, a 2007 Ohio lease provides

for 5-year renewals if various conditions are met, including a review of shipper satisfaction, safety, car loadings, track maintenance and financials. Then there are best practice provisions, energy efficiency provisions, and conflict-of-interest provisions. Did NWP make some payments to NCRA besides those required by the lease? Yes. In a side agreement to the lease, NWP agreed to pay $20,000 a month until such time as it would have to pay trackage fees under the lease, and NWP would get credit for these side agreement payments when it later was to make trackage payments. But NWP changed the agreement to end the monthly payments earlier. Later it turned the side agreement payments it had previously made into a receivable owed to it by NCRA. So over the last six years, NWP has paid about $30,000 in trackage fees to NCRA and is not paying anything now. Was the line recently repaired? Partially. It was rehabilitated from Lombard to Windsor, just north of Santa Rosa, about 62 miles. The work started in 2007 and was completed in 2010 (per NCRA) or 2011 (per NWP). How much was paid for the rehab? NCRA says it cost $68 million taxpayer dollars. Another $3 million was spent by NWP but most of that has been reimbursed with taxpayer funds. Was the NWP money spent to cover work done after a public bidding process? No. NWP was given a no-bid contract. Was the NWP work completed in accordance with the initial contract price and timeframe? No. The final cost was about three times the initial amount and instead of three months it took over a year. Did the board audit the billing? No. It is a sorry story. Don’t get me started. Was that the last no-bid contract awarded to NWP? No. NWP has been awarded a no-bid contract for the cleanup of toxics at the Ukiah Depot. Is NCRA financially stable? Looking at its finances, it appears to be near bankruptcy. The current budget can only be balanced by assuming that significant obligations will not be paid. Prior years’ budgets showed expenses well in excess of revenues. It has a long list of creditors with claims well in excess of NCRA’s yearly revenues. Y Contact the writer at peter@pseidman.com.

hat is past is prologue,” wrote William Shakespeare. With a line like that we’re pretty sure that, had he lived another 500 years, the Bard would’ve been pretty keen on our annual Cornerstones salutes to longstanding businesses of Marin. And in a county with such a plethora of pristine open space and continuity of character, much of Marin’s past IS prologue. For millennia Marin has been home to sweeping vistas, towering mountains and majestic plants, animals and people. From the area’s earliest inhabitants, the Coast Miwok, to today’s soiree of sun-worshipers, gogetters and open-space trailblazers—the seeds of 21st century Marin were planted by the intrepid pioneers and adventurous entrepreneurs of ye olden days and have grown to become the roots of our community. From the arrival of the railroad in the 1870s through the 1906 earthquake to the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge, the blossoming of Marin was made possible by the tradesmen, merchants and service providers who threw open their doors to a community looking for beds, board and brews—not always in that order. In this issue, the Pacific Sun salutes another handful of these “cornerstone” entrepreneurs of Marin. This is our fourth edition of Cornerstones, and we’re entering the mid20th century, when folks began offering quality-of-life services—from art centers and photography shops to cleaning businesses and landscape designers—all the things that paved the way to modern day “magical Marin.” —Jason Walsh

Monte’s Chapel of the Hills Making Marin’s departures a little easier, since 1932... by Ste p hanie Powe ll

A

long the Miracle Mile in San Anselmo, there is a building glazed in bright white with redwoods etched into a stained-glass window that reaches nearly as high as its structured arches. Don’t let its lofty appearance deceive you. Although it may be one of the oldest businesses still operating in San Anselmo today, it is certainly not a business that draws in eager clients. Monte’s Chapel of the Hills was established in 1932 on Bank Street. From there, Dominic Frank Monte and his family opened and operated the mortuary—which was in the bottom level of their home for its first five years—until it moved to its current location on Red Hill Avenue in 1937. A graduate of San Rafael High, Monte was one communityminded mortician, serving as mayor and city councilman in San Anselmo while fronting his family’s business, where son Charlie and wife Alice pitched in. The passing of Dominic in 1965 ushered in the next family-bred businessman—when the Montes’ son, 19-year old Charlie, took over. Today Monte’s Chapel of the Hills remains the only independent family-owned and operated mortuary in Marin. In Charlie’s time at the chapel, he arranged funerals for thousands of people—including a service for Grateful 10 Pacific Sun NOVEMBER 1 - NOVEMBER 7, 2013

Dead lead singer Jerry Garcia, complete with such all-star attendees as Bob Dylan and Ken Kesey. Charlie and his wife, Dee Dee, ran things until 2009 when they sold the business to longtime employee Edward J. Leon. (Charlie still owns the building and leases the property to Leon.) The transition of ownership isn’t the only notable change Chapel of the Hills has seen in recent decades. The most prominent changes Leon has experienced during the past two decades are the differences in industry trends and his clients’ wishes. “Oh my God, I mean just cremations, we’re 90 percent in Marin,” says Leon. “We still do a lot of traditional work, but people’s wishes are different. People like party planning now, so we’re more like event coordinators. You have to go with the times and offer what people want.” The new wave of ceremonies tend to focus on celebrations of life, including videos, sea scatterings and party planning—complete with food, balloons and poster boards. Leon also attributes another major change in the business to the mobility of clients. “Marin is very transitional—we’re dealing with a lot of people who are new to Marin,” he says.

The Montes initially operated the funerary services out of their house on Bank Street, before moving to their current Red Hill digs (above) in 1937.

“We’ve had our base clients who were born and raised here and never left. But now, we’re doing a lot of shipping, we’ll ship people to other states.” Chapel of the Hills has picked up another new project: The sherriff runs the coroner’s office out of its location. The division is complete with a storage facility that can hold up to 32 people and a designated autopsy room. Leon reported about “80 percent of their case load” remains on site and eventually become clients for Chapel of the Hills. In June, Richard Ramirez, “The Night Stalker,” was stored on site after the serial-killing San Quentin inmate died from complication from lymphoma at Marin General. The storing brought some unexpected attention to the Chapel. “It was kind of hush-hush. We had people

calling and some weird people showed up at the office here looking for him. Some of his prison pen pals,” said Leon. With over two decades invested into this Marin homegrown business, Leon is eager to continue growth for Chapel of the Hills. His hopes for the future are to complete some renovations, eventually purchase the land from the Monte family and possibly open up a second location that would specialize as the first pet cremation service in the county. Leon maintains the family-owned business atmosphere by remaining accessible to the community. But if you see Leon around town, don’t ask him the usual question: “Do the bodies stink?” Leon will tell you what he tells everybody. “Live people stink too.” ✹ Email Stephanie at spowell@pacificsun.com.

arin Country Day School’s 35-acre Corte Madera campus feels like a mini Google Mountain View headquarters for 5- to 13-year-olds. It’s a place where getting from the chicken coop by the Lower School’s garden to the greenhouse near the Upper School’s garden means weaving between classrooms named “Sequoia” and “Huckleberry.” It means veering around a kitchen with rooftop solar panels that heat water for dishwashing and past the newly LEED-platinum-certified media center and art studios, where little denim smocks are heaped over the kid-sized coat rack beside a posting board covered in inspirational quotes about creativity. The campus does not include a life-sized model T. Rex (touchè, Google), but both playgrounds do have slides. The school requires a lot of space because of its experiential learning approach, the school’s former assistant head and current history-director Sue Painter explained during a walking tour of the campus. Take last year, for instance, when a bird went splat against a second-grade classroom window and startled the kids inside. The teacher poked her head out, grimaced at the poor, dead bird, but then called for her second-graders to gather round. The class began studying why the bird hit the window, how often this happened and how to prevent it. In short, the whole campus is a classroom. If you’re ever dawdling in the school’s front office, you can flip through a 50th-anniversary, appreciation-project album laying on an end table filled with students’ notes of gratitude like, “I appreciate the school is all outside.” Those feel-good sentiments even trickle down to birthdays at MCDS, where classmates write “appreciations” about the birthday child in their class. (Healthy birthday treats are encouraged.) Respect, responsibility and compassion are the school’s core values and are part of its ho-

listic ethos, Painter says. “There’s an emphasis on the whole child, which now might seem like, ‘Of course.’” MCDS has been progressive from its start nearly six decades ago. After its first year located at a youth center in Fairfax, classes in 1957 were held in a set of rented circus tents on its Corte Madera grounds until the classrooms were built. A group of parents and teachers from Marin—mainly Sausalito—and San Francisco came together to form a bi-county learning experiment, where kids would “fall in love with the idea of going to school.” Geographic diversity is among the school’s tenets, so MCDS still draws students from either side of the bridge—currently, 52 percent hailing from Marin and 47 from San Francisco. In the school’s early days, though, the idea of going all the way across the bridge for school seemed odd. During the late ’50s in San Francisco’s Marina district, the funny little girl who lived downstairs and used to follow Painter up the steps to her flat was a MCDS student. Fifteen years later, living in Mill Valley by then, Painter’s own daughter started at the school. Visiting the campus, Painter says, “I was so taken with the almost palpable joyfulness.” The air of glee remains, where kids are shrieking and laughing and hurling balls across the central playground on a late morning in September. They’re like most children at recess, but when class begins, they’ll be studying Spanish or Mandarin, or traveling to nearby Ring Mountain to study petroglyphs, or perusing banned books in the library, where a sign reads: “Get caught reading banned books!” Forward thinking has been the school’s raison d’être for 57 years. “Learning how to think is way more important than memorizing who was the 15th president,” Painters says. James Buchanan would probably agree. Y Teach Mackenzie a thing or two at mmount@pacificsun.com.

veryone knows the photo business has changed drastically from the time (not that long ago!) when you would take an exposed roll of film to a store to be developed and wait days or even weeks to get the prints back. Enthusiasts could set up their own darkroom and immerse their black and white work in chemicals, carefully develop and dry the photo. It seems sort of quaint. Now, of course, people simply whip out their phones and, voila, a few finger taps later the masterpiece is cropped, enhanced, filtered, captioned and sent to everyone in the known universe. Which makes it all the more remarkable that downtown San Anselmo’s Seawood Photo—a real photo store!—has been around for 66 years and is still going strong. The business opened as The Photo Shop on April 19, 1947; the name was changed to Seawood in the 1960s to distinguish it from another shop and to reflect the “sea” and “woods” of the area. The business survived San Anselmo’s devastating 1982 flood, and was revitalized a few years later when commercial photographer and Marin native Graham Law came on board to manage the place. Twenty years ago Law bought the store outright and has been running it ever since. Although photography may be all about light and vision, it was a unique sound that brought the store a small measure of national fame in the 1980s. Ben Burtt, an Oscar-winning movie sound guy, was in Seawood when he overheard Marinite Pat Welsh ask at the

desk about photo enlargements. That voice! Welsh’s age (in her 60s) and formidable cigarette habit gave her a sound that was perfect for Burtt’s current project: E.T. And so a star was born, or at least the voice of a weirdlooking alien. With all the seismic changes in photography, Law thinks the key to Seawood’s future is in the past—he’s focused on developing “a store like no other.” There are hundreds of vintage cameras in their Camera Museum —the oldest dates back to 1890 and they go right through models that baby boomers will readily recognize. There are WWII vintage “machine gun cameras,” used to help train gunners, as well as teeny-tiny “spy” cameras on display. Seawood also deals in vintage cameras, naturally, and although they are available online, Law says there is nothing like “hands-on” consideration of an old camera to assess the condition and fit. Of course, for die-hard purists, Seawood Photo remains a place to buy film and get it developed. It’s also where you can buy (or rent) lenses and new cameras, have enlargements made, have digital cameras’ sensors cleaned or buy darkroom equipment and chemicals. And it’s just a wonderful place to look around at all the great stuff. When is the last time you saw a flash bulb? It’s also a place to buy—there’s no use fighting it—special lenses that will make your digital camera phone even snappier. Y

ning for a total of 30 weeks. The Porchlight performs outside in the redwood grove near the barn during the summer and early fall. The ensemble-based company revels in the benefits of live theater and how it can bring a community together. RVP and the Porchlight contribute rich threads to the fabric of MAGC. The 16 verdant and leafy acres provide an outstanding setting for weddings, for which MAGC is a prime rental in the county. Garden “rooms” tucked hither and yon, with lush plantings, a fountain, gazebo, lawns and a lovingly tended rose garden see more than their fair share of brides and grooms each weekend. Horticulture is celebrated at the center through the support of the county’s Garden Society, Bonsai Club, Garden Club and Master Gardeners. These groups provide education, put on shows and promote conservation and the love of gardening. Laurel House Antiques, a consignment shop near the office, carries furniture, dishware, glasses, lamps and all types of housewares. I stopped in during my visit and the place was doing a brisk business, with shoppers squeezing past each other in rooms crammed with treasures. Afterward I strolled through the gardens to the Art Society gallery, which has been operating since 1927. The gallery displays the work of members in shows that change monthly and also has one of the finest collections of art rentals in northern California. Taking a cue from Carol, I rented a gorgeous painting of Drake’s Beach at sunset, with a dreamy purple hue. Walking back to the car, the road noise muted by the chattering sounds of children from behind the gates of Pixie Park, I was touched by the serenity of the grounds and the rich heritage of the site. MAGC is fulfilling its mission to foster the arts and history in our community. Y Contact Brooke at brooke.d.jackson@gmail.com. COURTESY THE MARIN ART AND GARDEN CENTER

henever I go to my friend Carol’s house, I’m delighted and impressed by the stunning works of art that grace her walls. Recently I found out that she rents paintings from the Marin Art Society, located in the Marin Art and Garden Center (MAGC). On a recent visit, I found the society’s gallery as well as much, much more at this hidden gem of culture and flowers in Ross. Housed on one of the county’s original land grants, the center is home to spectacular gardens, a whimsical park, two theater groups, horticultural clubs, the Art Society, an upscale thrift shop, a small library and the Ross Historical Society. It’s like stepping back in time to walk the paths and visit the charming Octagon House, a landmark that anchors the property. In 1847, James Ross, founding father of the town named in his honor, settled on the Rancho Punta de Quentin land grant, which contained present day Ross, Greenbrae, parts of Kentfield and Larkspur and San Quentin Village. He had battled with Benjamin Buckalew, the previous owner of the grant, to obtain the property and promptly moved into the Buckalew home, opening a trading post called Ross Landing. Ross’ daughter and son-in-law put down roots where the MAGC is located. The barn, current home to the Ross Valley Players (RVP), and the Octagon House, the location of the Moya Library and Ross Historical Society, are the only buildings remaining from that time. In 1943, as development was looming, Caroline Livermore and the Marin Conservation League raised the funds to purchase the property. This was the beginning of the nonprofit Marin Art and Garden Center, with a charter committed to the development of the county’s rich natural and cultural assets. Two such assets are the Ross Valley Players and the Porchlight Theater Company. RVP has been at the Barn Theatre since the 1940s and each year puts on six productions, run-

eave customers delighted with the work you’ve done. Don’t do dumb things. Such are the tenets Tom Cagwin and Dave Dorward instilled in the staff of the eponymous landscaping company they started 58 years ago. You’re not hiring someone to be thoughtful, creative, kind, Dorward explains on a Tuesday at his apartment in a San Rafael retirement community (which handles its landscaping in-house). “You want somebody that’s willing to swing an eight-pound sledgehammer for two or three hours, but do it in such a way that it doesn’t break the window nearby.” So with a simple ethos and rolled sleeves, Cagwin, with his ornamental horticulture degree, and Dorward, with his economics degree, grew their business from Cagwin & Dorward in 1955, two guys and a GMC pickup truck without a dump body, to Cagwin & Dorward in 2013, 350-plus people serving more than 800 accounts across 18 California counties. There was never a master plan, Dorward says. That first year was rain, rain rain, leaving the guys to ring doorbells and offer to shovel and cart away mud. At Christmas, Cagwin and Dorward twined branches of holly or pine and topped them with a big red bow and some bells. They sold these “door swags” at the now-defunct Kentfield Nursery. “If anyone had told me when I was 24 years old that I would’ve started a company that grew to three or four hundred employees, I would have said they were wacky,” Dorward says. Even Cagwin and Dorward’s meeting was a fluke, a chance, small-world encounter at the Ross Valley Players, where Cagwin’s in-laws were members. The young couples had dinner, Cagwin said his partner had just quit from their fledgling landscaping company, and Dorward said he was sick of selling Purex bleach to tiny groceries throughout San Francisco. Cagwin had just the something else Dorward had been looking for. “I’ve been fumbling around for two years now with my degree flapping around my back pocket,” Dorward says he thought at the time. “We got along well together and decided maybe we should become business partners.” “Tom and I started out pushing wheelbarrows, digging holes, planting plants, pouring concrete, building stone walls, fences, benches—all of the little things that a residential landscape contractor would do.” That floppy economics degree proved useful once the business grew, after the guys got a second truck in the spring of ’56 and “things just started to come together,” eventually

requiring an office and a landline and another person around to answer it. A couple new employees were joining Cagwin & Dorward each season, though Cagwin was dubious about why the company needed so many people working on typewriters. The trick, Dorward says, was to hire carefully, then treat people right. You hear of bosses making 100 times what their employees do, Dorward says of companies today. “One of the things that Tom and I did every year was sit down and compare our pay to our employees’ pay. I don’t think there was ever a time when we made more than twice what our highest-paid employee did.” Cagwin retired in 1992 and Dorward in 1995, but Cagwin & Dorward the company remains, currently led by president Steve Glennon, who started working as labor in 1979, when the company had long moved past residential odds and ends and moved into commercial construction projects.

Founders Tom Cagwin, left, and Dave Dorward, center, celebrate the end of another work day with Dennis Dougherty, who worked at the company for 41 years, retiring as president this summer.

Now, the company mainly handles commercial landscaping maintenance. Glennon says that taking care of staff is still paramount—like offering full medical benefits for all employees, no matter the economic tide. Nowadays, Cagwin lives in the Napa Valley. Dorward paints landscapes—framed throughout his home, scattered between pictures of his six kids, 12 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, and his second wife, Marialyce, who died last year. At 82, Dorward’s been oil painting for more than 70 years, but he never considered becoming a professional artist. Sitting under his portrait of Banff National Park, Dorward says he never thought he had the talent: “I didn’t think I was good enough to do that, and I still don’t.” His legacy is Cagwin & Dorward. “It gives you a great sense of pride to have it carry on.” Y Tell Mackenzie to get off your lawn at mmount@pacificsun.com.

Planting a few ideas about gifts for gardeners... by Annie Sp ie ge lm an , t he D ir t D iva

W

hat do gardeners want this holiday season? First they want some rain. Next they want to spend the winter months dreaming and scheming about what they’ll do next growing season in their yards. You can help them achieve their lofty gardening goals by giving them one or more of the gift ideas below. Pick up a copy of Daphne Miller’s brand new book Farmacology: What Innovative Family Farming Can Teach Us About Health and Healing. Marin family physician and nutrition expert Daphne Miller traveled across the nation visiting seven family farms bridging the traditional divide between agriculture and medicine. What does it come down to? Feeding the SOIL; not just the plant. Or, looking at the human body as a whole, not just certain organs. Support the entire ecosystem and the farm (or the body) will thrive. Find a copy at Book Passage in Marin. $25. Womanswork is a woman-owned garden glove company specializing in high quality, long-lasting garden gloves, hats and bandannas for women. A set of three bright-colored (blue, yellow and pink) bandannas adorned with the company logo “strong women building a gentle world” go for $6.95. Get these for the garden fashionista on your list. Try Sloat Nursery or order online at www.womanswork.com. Urban Roots is a documentary about a group of tough, spirited Detroit gardeners who reclaim their land. As the film’s producer Mark MacInnis says, “It took men like Henry Ford, William Durant and Lee Iacocca to build this city, but it’s taken a bunch of strong willed, self-taught urban farmers to save it.” Buy the DVD or an Urban Roots organic T-shirt and the filmmakers will donate 20 percent to building farms in schools. Hell yeah! www.urbanrootsamerica.com. $19.95. If you’re cynical and cranky during the holidays, like I am, what better gift to give to your relatives than a bag of crap! It’s a slam dunk and a Christmas memory to last a lifetime. “Double-Doody” compost is

a blend of horse and cow manure created from animals spoiled rotten in the hills of Point Reyes at Giacomini Ranch. As owner of Point Reyes Compost, Teddy Stray says, “Mother Nature knows what she’s doing. This stuff makes land thrive and gardens flourish. We’re just here to bring it to those who aren’t lucky enough to have happy, well-fed animals roaming around their land. Ain’t poop grand?” Sold at Fairfax Lumber, Sunnyside Nursery, and Whole Foods on East Blythedale in Mill Valley. Or visit www.prcompostco.com. $7 a bag. I heart these peace signs (and somebody better be getting me one for the holidays)! Lindsey Taylor, Erin Crysdale and Armond Croft of California Peaceworks create the sculptures in their garden workshop here in Marin. They use salvaged wine barrel hoops, antique wagon wheels, bed frames, used bicycles and various bits and pieces found in junk yards and flea markets to create these peace sculptures. Each peace work is unique and they offer a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Prices range from $60-$220 and can be found at Greenjeans Garden Supply in Mill Valley. Symphony of the Soil is Marin-based director Deborah Koons-Garcia’s latest environmental documentary. She and her team traveled across four continents sharing the knowledge and wisdom of some of the world’s most highly esteemed farmers, soil scientists and environmental leaders. “Once you really get that soil is alive and part of a community of life that includes microorganisms, mountain lions, hawks, spiders, worms, salmon, bunnies and us, you really can’t stand the idea of pouring poison on


it,” says Koons-Garcia. “That’s poisoning ourselves.” The DVD is for sale at www.lilyfims.com. $25. Just last summer, landscape designer Dan Dufficy made a dream come true by opening up California Native Landscape Plant Nursery in Mill Valley. Dufficy, who spent his childhood playing in the woods behind his home in Fairfax, says he was always a plant lover. In 1998 he opened his own landscape design company. His nursery specializes in rare native plant flora. They also carry organic herbs, vegetable starts and fruit trees. “My goal is to become a source of knowledge for landscapers and homeowners interested in cultivating native flora,” says Dufficy. Get learnin’! Native plants whine less than other plants plus many of them are drought tolerant, low maintenance and self-sufficient. Those are the plants you

want so you can sit back, relax and take all the credit. The nursery is open seven days a week between 10am-5pm. 254 Shoreline Highway, Mill Valley. Last, I highly recommend Hardwiring Happiness, the latest book by local author and neuropsychologist Rick Hanson. We gardeners know that gardening makes us smile but for the rest of you who aren’t plant junkies, check out this book. Hanson suggests that we imagine our brains like a garden. He writes, “This book is about the cultivation of inner strengths: growing flowers in the garden of the mind. Inner strengths or positive emotions reduce reactivity and stress, help heal psychological wounds, improve resilience, well being and life satisfaction.” Who doesn’t want to grow flowers in their mind!? Bring it on! Available at Book Passage or online. $20. Y

World on a string Coens... Katy... Clapton–everything’s unplugged these days! G r e g Cahill

ould you believe R&B star Justin Timberlake as an acousticguitar strumming 1960s folkie? Believe it. Ethan and Joel Coen—aka the Coen Brothers, the filmmakers who gave Americana a major boost with the multiplatinum soundtrack to 2000’s O Brother, Where Art Thou?—are returning this year to the acoustic-music idiom with Inside Llewyn Davis and Timberlake is in the cast. Joel Coen maintains a residence in West Marin with his Academy Awardwinning wife, the actress Frances McDormand. The film, which won the Grand Prix at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, is set in the heart of the 1960s folk revival: Greenwich Village. It’s scheduled for a Dec. 20 release in the States, but the buzz already has started.

Highway 95 revisited: The Coens’ ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ depicts the zeitgeist of the early ‘60s New York folk scene.

Inside Llewyn Davis stars Oscar Isaac as an aspiring folkie. The cast also includes Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund and, yes, Justin Timberlake. The story revolves, in part, around the infighting that took place on the Greenwich Village scene, where such New York-based performers as Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, also a West Marin resident, complained of being overshadowed by artists from outside the city grabbing the spotlight. The late folk-guitar and singing legend Dave Van Ronk’s 2005 memoir, The Mayor of MacDougal Street, is said to have served as an inspiration. T Bone Burnett supervised the soundtrack. Guitarist and percussionist Marcus Mumford, of Mumford & Sons, worked with Burnett and coached the actors. The soundtrack, which includes a previously unreleased 1964 Bob Dylan track, is set for Nov. 11 release. But the film’s music already was celebrated on Sept. 29 at a

concert at New York’s The Town Hall. Performers included cast members as well as the Avett Brothers, Joan Baez, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Jack White, Conor Oberst, Patti Smith and Willie Watson, among others. The film marks yet another emergence of acoustic music in America’s electronicdance-music-sated pop culture. The idiom first got a major shot in the arm in 1969 with the release of the eponymous, mostly acoustic, debut album by David Crosby (who spent a fair amount of his wasted years in Marin), Steve Stills and Graham Nash. Fittingly, the folk-rock supergroup CSN&Y reunite this past weekend for the first time since 2006 when Crosby, Stills and Nash joined rock-icon Neil Young Oct. 26 and 27 at the annual Bridge School Benefit Concert at the Shoreline Amphitheatre. For the past three years, Young has promised the release of the CSNY 1974 Tour Box Set, with rare material culled from eight of the 42 shows the band performed that year. The latest announced release date is sometime in March. Meanwhile, fans of acoustic music can satisfy their thirst for the simpler life with the new issue of Unplugged: Expanded & Remastered, a two-CD and single-DVD deluxe edition of the album that captured Eric Clapton’s 1992 live MTV broadcast. The expanded edition offers six previously unreleased songs and alternate takes, plus rehearsal footage. If that’s not enough acoustic action for you, pop diva Katy Perry this week told the British rock publication NME that she plans to release an acousticguitar album. In 2009, she did issue the soundtrack to her MTV Unplugged appearance, and last year released an acoustic version of the dance hit “The One That Got Away.” She offered no details about the upcoming project. But don’t expect to see her floating naked on a cloud of pink cotton candy, as she did on the “California Gurls” music video, though that marketing approach certainly helped push 2010’s multi-platinum-selling album Teenage Dream into the stratosphere.

On Broadway Big changes at Fairfax’s venerable 19 Broadway Nightclub... by t he Space Cow b oy

T

here has been a change in ownership and management at the historic 19 Broadway Nightclub in Fairfax. Former owner/GM Jon Dunsing is out and longtime local musician Jonathan Korty (Vinyl/Chrome Johnson/Electric Apricot) has been lured away from his house manager position at Sweetwater to become the new managing partner/talent buyer. Original and current owner Garry Graham says, “My wife, Amory, and I started the tradition of live music seven nights a week at 19 Broadway over 30 years ago and we could not be happier that our legacy is in the hands of Mr. Korty. We feel like we drafted a star quarterback.” The plans are to remodel the music hall and former “tiki bar,” enlarging the dance floor and revamping the sound system. Korty says he’s looking forward to being part of a “legendary family business” in Fairfax. “As a born-and-bred Marinite, I am well aware of the great musical heritage of this area and I intend to do everything I can to continue to bring top notch music to this club and nurture up and coming local acts,” says Korty, who urges readers to “like” the club’s Facebook page and check out the performance calendar at www.19Broadway.com.

They say the neon lights are bright on 19 Broadway...

Some of the shows coming up at 19 Broadway in November include: Eric McFadden (P-Funk/Eric Burdon) and The Faraway Bros with The Gravel Spreaders on Nov. 8; Zigaboo Modeliste (drummer of The Meters) and his new Aarkestra on Nov. 9; Melvin Seals & JGB on Nov. 15; Jay Lane (drummer for Primus/Ratdog) & Friends with ELP on Nov. 16; and Lumanation with Tom Finch Group on Nov 29. The club will also start free “BoogieWoogie Blue Tuesdays” every week from 8 to 11pm by the fireplace as great piano

players such as Mitch Woods, Austin deLone, Wendy deWitt, Fredrick Nighthawk, Wendy Fitz and Charlie Hickox stop by to rock the house. It was a very touching tribute to Judge Murphy this past weekend at Petaluma’s Mystic Theater, where the Zero family and friends joined together onstage to honor the life of their former vocalist and longtime friend. Judge’s daughters and wife, Lauren, were joined by Martin Fierro’s daughter Jessica Fierro onstage for part of the show, as well as Chip Roland, Bobby Vega, Steve Kimock and his son Miles, Robin Sylvester, Greg Anton, Banana Levinger, Wavy Gravy and more. The sold-out crowd reflected a small portion of the many lives Judge touched with his voice and spirit. Our sincerest condolences go out to his family and loved ones.

Q:

I’ve tried to be open-minded, but I’ve decided that men are givers and women are takers. I study at my local coffeehouse. I am interested in this woman who comes in and often unplug my computer and offer to let her use the outlet. Two weeks ago, I decided to make my interest clearer by buying her coffee. She said, “Oh! Thanks!” Then she put her nose back in her books. The next time she came in, I offered her my large table because she had tons of books. She blushed as girls do, asking, “Are you sure?” I said, “Of course!” I then worked at a small, cramped table next to her. She made no effort to talk, except when she asked me to watch her computer while she went to the restroom. Finally, I decided to be really clear and asked if she’d like to grab a bite sometime. She smiled and said she’d just see me here, but thanks. Yeah, she’ll see me there and expect me to give her my big table. I’m sick of this take, take, take. A woman needs to tell a man right away if she’s not interested and not let him sit there like an idiot, planning to make her life easier. —Irate

A:

I guess when you ask a woman whether she’d like to use the power outlet, she should just come right out and say, “I would, but I don’t find you very attrac-

tive.” Why go after what you want when you can dance around it, do it favors, and hope it figures out that you’ve made a secret agreement with it in your head? There are girls who would respond in a way you’d consider honorable—who would not only show appreciation when you provide them with complimentary food and beverages but even follow you home. Unfortunately, they’re the sort of girls who catch a Frisbee in their teeth. Like the sign spinner on the corner in the Statue of Liberty suit, you think you need to lure women with a special offer, except instead of “Cash for gold!” it’s “Snake your drain for a date!” You’re apparently convinced that no woman would want you for you. This probably isn’t entirely off base, since the “you” you currently are is a guy who thinks instilling a sense of obligation in a woman for favors rendered is your best hope of having sex again before you forget where the parts go. Stop grumbling that women are conniving takers, and work on accepting yourself, flaws and all. Once your self-respect is no longer trailer-hitched to whether women want you, you can be direct —just talk to a woman, let her see who you are, and ask her out. She may turn you down, but if you feel OK about yourself, you’ll see her rejection as your cue—simply to find the next girl to hit on, not to storm out behind the coffeehouse, shake your fist at the sky, and yell, “Hey, weren’t the meek supposed to inherit the earth? Where’s mine?!”

Q:

A friend of a year has a pattern of raving about people she meets and then completely cooling on them. Last week, she met a man online. On their first date, he took her shopping, buying her a gold ring and a key ring he had engraved with both their names and “Thinking of you always.” She describes him as perfect, brilliant, etc., and said she loves him and would marry him. I said things like “Take some time to get to know him,” but I don’t think she really heard me. —Concerned

A:

A first date like theirs raises some questions for the second date, such as, “Who should pay the invoice for the side-by-side burial plots?” Be prepared to wear out your face trying to talk sense into your friend. The problem is “confirmation bias”—our tendency to seek information that supports what we already believe and toss information that does not. In other words, your time would be better spent painting a wall and speaking meaningful thoughts to the paint as it dries. Another productive use of your time would be adding up how much of it you’re spending worrying about this woman’s problems. It isn’t mercenary or ugly to expect a friendship to be mutual and to influence you in positive ways. If how she lives is dragging you down, you may want to give her a little less prominence in your life. Then, when you do see her, you can just admire her ring and share in her happiness at reaching that milestone golden anniversary—celebrating 50 joyous minutes of knowing a man. Y
