ROARING MARIN Coming March 25th Jeepers! It’s Best of Marin 2011 and time to crank up the Stutz Bearcat for another trip round the county’s finest in food, drink, customer service and entertainment. This year is our salute to the bee’s kneesiest decade of them all, the 1920s—the age of jazz, bathtub gin, and Charleston-crazed It Girls. The decadence of the flapper era is one many Marinites can relate to, as we’ve come to expect the very best from our restaurants, niteclubs, home improvement centers and beauty supply companies. So never mind the Boardwalk Empire— come join the Marin Empire. You won’t have to speak easy, when talking about who’s the Best of Marin.

This movie is Spanish, as in made in Barcelona with Spanish actors—not Mexican. An important distinction. Frankly, given the nature of his job, I’m surprised at his ignorance. Maybe Mr. Stafford should go see a movie once in a while.

Biutiful, while featuring Spanish actor Javier Spanish actor Javier Bardem Bardem as a wanders the streets of Barcelona in Mexico’s official entry for Acad- single father on emy consideration. the outskirts of Barcelona society coming to grips with news of his advanced-stage cancer, is in fact a Mexican production. (It’s labeled a co-production between Mexico and Spain, actually, but the Spanish credit is mostly due to location and local crew.)

Thanks to Nikki Silverstein for her support over the holidays in publishing my story about the stolen bikes of a friend and myself [Hero & Zero, Dec. 10]. I wanted to take the time to update you on a couple of things. After a month with the bike stolen, and me having emotionally written off the loss in my mind, I decided to check Craigslist just for fun on the morning of Jan. 3. Lo and behold, I found what appeared to be my bicycle being sold out of downtown Oakland. The picture listed was of my frame and fork, wheels missing. I called the police and got them involved. They went and did a “fake buy” that night, and detained the two girls selling the bike. Since then, the girls have cooperated with the police, who just released the bike to me yesterday, and the investigation has halted due to lack of information about the flea market in Oakland where the girl sellers picked up the bike. This means that I am really lucky to get my bike back in the first place, due to my own police work—but unfortunately, my friend Justin Spivey does not get his bike back, nor does the bike thief get brought to justice. Justin bought a great bike for very cheap from a friend, and he has been riding from

the Headlands daily. Again, thanks for your support, as it really warmed me to know that there are people out there who we have never met before but care about us deeply. Justin Wong, Mill Valley

Martin Butt, Marin

Been there, Kennesaw that... This is in response to Eddie Katzman’s letter [“Freedom Can Be Messy, So Can the Facts,” Feb. 4] and your comments answering his allegations [that the prevalence of guns makes society safer]. I find your response to be appropriate and right-on. The first thing that grabs me about his diatribe is the tone—that vindictive rant we hear from Fox News commentators or certain right-wing politicians. No, I do not consider myself a left-leaning Michael Moore follower when it comes to guns and gun control, having spent 20 years as an infantry officer in hotspots like ’Nam, during and after the Tet offensive, etc. What struck me about operating in a war zone was how nervous it made me where every friendly carried a loaded weapon and on more than one occasion a weapon “accidentally” went off, killing or maiming someone. So to Eddie and other NRA patriots, I say fine—protect yourself with a handgun. But let’s get real. We need laws against assault rifles. Kennesaw sounds like a nice place I don’t care to visit. Richard Lloyd, Woodacre

Catchment if you can Wow, a whole edition on local water issues [Flowing Green, Feb. 4], a lot of column inches. But hold on, where’s all the information about personal and household water re-use? Isn’t collection and re-use of rainwater, shower, bath, sink, washing machine and even spring water the most obvious and cost-effective way of conserving lakes full of water? And wouldn’t it be responsible and empowering to take care of our own water use? Perhaps save some of it from the drain and return it to the garden for the benefit of our natural environment, all its inhabitants, and even our water bills? Or should we depend on large organizations to do it for us in a more complicated and vastly more expensive way? Ah, there it is, one column inch that mentions rainwater catchment at the very end of an interview with Dietrich Stroeh. Some of you might be interested to know that one 6 PACIFIC SUN FEBRUARY 18 - FEBRUARY 24, 2011

inch of rainfall on a 1,000-square-foot Marin roof amounts to 600 gallons of water and your washing machine merrily pumps out a pond full while the garden is drinking precious treated water!

Salt on the climate change wound I’m writing in regards to the interview with the Pacific Institute’s Peter Gleick [“Prometheus Unbottled,” Feb. 4] in the recent water-themed issue. I respectfully believe that one of Gleick’s statements about Marin desalination merits further discussion. He said that desal “should be compared on an equal basis with other alternatives” to determine whether it is cheaper. I agree, if “an equal basis” implies looking not only at the per-unit financial costs (persuasive enough against Marin Municipal Water District desal), but also at any “externalities” involved (e.g., potential health risks, impact on global warming and otherwise on our environment, etc.). Taking just one example, construction and operation of an MMWD desal plant would require a huge increase in our electricity use, and the water district is already our county’s largest user of electricity. Even if MMWD utilizes 100 percent renewables (via Marin Clean Energy), only a limited amount of renewable electrical energy will be available in total for the foreseeable future. This means that renewables devoted to district desal will be unavailable for use elsewhere in our country, thus requiring an increase in usage elsewhere of carbon-emitting power. More CO2 emissions outside of MMWD’s boundaries will ultimately affect our climate here as well as everywhere else. By contrast, efficiencies and conservation in water use will not only save money, but also reduce carbon emissions. While measuring the bottom line, we also need to not lose sight of the bigger picture. Alexander Binik, Fairfax

Yes in my backyard How Marin should put out the affordable housing welcome mat... by Pe te r Se i d m an

W

hile a contentious debate continues about whether Novato should have to bow to state affordable housing quotas, two affordable housing organizations have quietly embarked on a program that adds affordable homes to the city’s mix. And no one is arguing. Northbay Family Homes (NFH) and its financing affiliate, the Suburban Alternative Land Trust, last month bought the first two homes in a 20-home workforce-housing program. Both properties are three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath townhouses, located off Redwood Boulevard, just north of Novato Boulevard. The foreclosed homes are close to shopping, jobs and transportation— workforce homes. The Northbay Family Homes program is part of a Marin Community Foundation (MCF) initiative to promote workforce housing and add to the affordable housing stock. MCF awarded the group a $250,000 grant to start its program to buy, refurbish and return to the market bank-owned homes. In addition to the MCF grant, NFH received funds from the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco, the San Francisco Foundation and PG&E. The funds will be used to buy, rehabilitate and sell to working families the 20 homes in the next 12 to 18 months. The first home in Novato should be back

on the market next month, according to Clark Blasdell, NFH president and CEO. Originally, the program was to extend to Sonoma County. But NFH couldn’t secure enough loan money to buy in Sonoma; in Marin, Wells Fargo helped kick off the program with a $500,000 loan. The focus of the program is to provide affordable housing for working families with three or more people in a household that includes at least one child living at home. To qualify, a family must earn no more than 80 percent of the area median income, or about $86,00 for a family of four. The first home was bought for $200,000 and is getting about $50,000 of work before it goes on the market. Depending on a family’s income, NFH will sell the properties at cost or less “Northbay Family Homes is in year 34,” says Blasdell. “During the first decade, we did a wide variety of projects. We used all kinds of foundation and government financing. The subsequent two decades, we pretty much only did it with primarily private sector money. We had no foundation grants, no government grants. We just did it with our own earned income. In 2005, everybody’s money disappeared— government, financing, banking, it all disappeared. We went back to applying for grants, and we have been quite 9 >

›› NEWSGRAMS Marin dog rolls over competition at Westminster Terry Kelso of Novato has owned cocker spaniels since 1975, but black-and-white pooch Windsor 18K Rolls Royce— aka Bentley—was her first dog at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York. On Tuesday morning, 4-year-old Bentley beat out 10 other perfectly coifed parti-color cocker spaniels to be named Best of Variety and represent his type in the televised Sporting Group judging Tuesday night. The group was eventually won by a black cocker spaniel, which in turn was beaten in the Best of Show finale by a Scottish deerhound. Kelso, who attended the recent Golden Gate Kennel Club Dog Show with a Bentleysired pup, said she’s been interested in the breed a long time.“In the 1950s, my aunt didn’t have children, she had cocker spaniels,” Kelso said.“This is a passion.” Bentley’s co-owner, Judy Bjelland, handled the dog in the ring.—Julie Vader New York digs ‘Dirt Diva’ The Pacific Sun’s own Annie Spiegelman—known to readers as the Dirt Diva—is being given a green-thumb thumbs-up by the Books for a Better Life Awards, which has nominated her as a finalist in its “green” books category. Talking Dirt: The Dirt Diva’s Down-to-Earth Guide to Organic Gardening was selected from more than 500 submitted books published in 2010. The Books for a Better Life Awards were established in 1996 to honor the authors of the year’s best self-improvement books, while raising funds to help fight multiple sclerosis. To date the program has raised more than $1.7 million and awarded more than 500 authors. Spiegelman says she’d wanted her gardening book to feel more like a “casual conversation” than a “lecture from a stuffy horticulturalist.” “My plan was,” she says,“to compress, simplify and put a little clown hat on all the scientific research, jargon and botanical gobbledygook.” She says gardens should be fun,“but the benefits they provide, from the aesthetic to the ecological, should be taken seriously.” The awards will be presented March 7 at the Millennium Broadway Hotel In New York City. Good luck, Annie!—Jason Walsh Marin Organic director to germinate elsewhere After seven years as executive director of Marin Organic, Helge Hellberg is stepping away from the organization that’s helped Marin gain a national reputation for promoting organic foods. Hellberg, 43, hasn’t announced what his future plans are, but said he’s confident the nonprofit’s eight-person staff, to be led for the interim by associate director Adrienne Baumann, can successfully carry out Marin Organic’s mission of steering Marin eaters and growers toward organically grown foods. As of 2010, there were 52 certified organic farms in Marin County. Each week Marin Organic delivers a combination of purchased and “gleaned” (aesthetically imperfect crops) organic food to more than 12,000 students. Over 130,000 pounds of local organic products have been gleaned and delivered since 2004. Throughout the year, schoolchildren visit Marin Organic’s farms and help farmers harvest crops and plant seeds and seedlings. The goal: teaching the next generation where “real” food comes from and how to respect the land. —JW, additional reporting by Annie Spiegelman

² When our Pacific Sun photography team snapped a shot of this hobbling fellow with a tight orange anklet we first thought—does this pigeon have a tracking band or ID tag on its leg? Not according to Dr. Jon Stern, biology professor at San Francisco State University. “It’s a zip tie and it serves no purpose,” he says. The pigeon, last seen near Sol Food in San Rafael, has trouble walking. Melanie Piazza, director of Animal Care at WildCare, wants to catch the bird and remove the tie before it causes serious injury. “Please don’t try to catch it yourself,” advises Piazza. Instead, report all sightings to the WildCare hotline at 415/456-SAVE. Both experts agree that a human applied the zip tie to the bird’s leg. “Whoever did this is a jerk,” Dr. Stern declares. Good call. This inhumane jerk is our Zero of the Week.—Nikki Silverstein

< 7 Yes in my backyard successful over the last few years getting grants and support.” The MCF grant is part of a $10 million initiative the organization began in 2009. One of the strategies is to invest in affordable housing, rental and owned properties “that take advantage of specific opportunities”—which includes the large number of foreclosed homes in the county. Novato was a logical place to start the program, according to Blasdell. “About half of [bank owned] homes in Marin exist in Novato.” Because of limited financing options, NFH had to be creative with its plan to launch the home buy-back program. The alteration in the plan accentuates a market-based approach. “We can’t acquire a third house until we sell the first house,” says Blasdell. “We will be doing buy, fix and sell, buy, fix and sell.” The Wells Fargo funding is a revolving loan that NFH will use to “replenish itself to buy another home.” It’s not unlike the old go-go real-estate-bubble days when investors bought and flipped homes for a profit. In this strategy, however, the benefit goes to working families and communities that need additional affordable housing. Although the real estate market crashed, housing prices in Marin are still beyond the reach for many workers, especially those in service industries. The market-based approach is getting a boost in the form of subsidies from the Federal Home Loan Bank system. Families earning up to 65 percent of the area’s median income will qualify for $15,000 of down payment assistance through the system’s Affordable Housing Program. The Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco is part of that system. Each year, federal home loan banks set aside 10 percent of their net profits to fund affordable housing programs and developments for very low-, low- and moderate-income families. The federal Affordable Housing Program received authorization after the S&L debacle of the 1980s, in which hundreds of savings and loans went bust, leaving taxpayers to bail out the industry. Ironically, many institutions went out of business because they imprudently loaned money in the go-go real estate market. “It’s about the private sector’s contribution in order to remain in business,” says Blasdell. One condition of the bailout was telling the savings and loans that “when you come back to profitability, you have to set aside 10 percent of annual profits to be provided to organizations in the community that you serve. You can award it out as you see fit.” The NFH program qualified for $600,000 in Affordable Housing Program funding from the San Francisco bank, half of which was to be spent in Sonoma County; unfortunately, the Sonoma portion of the program is on hold. The remaining $300,000 will go toward providing that $15,000 of mortgage assistance for Marin families.

Blasdell says his group, which played a role in creating housing at Hamilton, has “always been a black sheep in the nonprofit world. Many people haven’t understood the model. If the private sector has two-thirds of the money, that’s the place to go to first. That’s how we got our part of Hamilton done; we went to the private sector. We helped create a redevelopment sector to complement the private sector.” The MCF grant to NFH is part of a shift in its grant-making policy. Rather than simply granting funds to organizations for ongoing program operations, it embarked on a path to foster new and innovative ways to wrestle with existing problems. The NFH program “is very attractive to our investment eye,” says Thomas Peters, MCF president and CEO. “We use the term philanthropic investment, and putting that money into a market-based solution makes it more sustainable. We are looking more and more to those kinds of creative, multisector market-based programs.” In addition to the NFH grant, MCF has contributed “a minimum of $1 million” to Habitat for Humanity over the years to help build affordable housing using Habitat’s sweat-equity model. The community foundation is funding a Habitat program—to rehabilitate foreclosed homes—that complements the NFH program. “We have two new homeowners in houses,” says Phillip Kilbridge, executive director at Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco. “One is in Novato, one in San Rafael, and we have two homes under development in Novato as well. Habitat also has plans for affordable housing in Strawberry, but that project is on hold until the developer of a market-based portion of the project decides to jump back into the real estate development market. For a while Habitat met with resistance in Marin, including Novato. But the visceral opposition, based mostly on inadequate knowledge of Habitat and its clients, seems to have diminished, most likely because Habitat’s projects in Marin are aimed at single families rather than the medium- and high-density projects that some Novato residents strongly oppose. “It’s nice that we finally, after 15 or 20 years of working, have hardworking Marin families in some homes built by Habitat,” says Kilbridge. In contrast to the days of open opposition (although that certainly could reappear), neighbors of new Habitat homes have been “warm and welcoming.” Kilbridge thinks the welcoming attitude comes in part because neighbors see a home in poor condition after foreclosure. “It’s vacant and it’s sitting there. The option is that it sits there longer or somebody buys it as an investment property and rents it. Or at Habitat we get a new hardworking homeowner in there who is going to put in 500 hours of their own time, along with a lot of volunteer time.” One Novato home was “not in good shape,” he says. “You go by there now and there is a raised garden bed in the front yard, a nice

lawn and a family with three kids.” Before purchasing homes, Habitat engages in significant outreach in the neighborhoods in which it works. It paid off in Novato. The owner of the aforementioned home told Kilbridge that when the family went trick-or-treating, neighbors expressed warmth and friendliness. “He felt like a rock star,” says Kilbridge. The program, taking foreclosures and rehabilitating them as workforce housing, takes advantage of a circumstance. But Kilbridge, Blasdell and Peters acknowledge that the need for workforce housing is far greater than the supply that can be created by taking foreclosed homes and getting them back in the housing stock. “This is nice. This is a short-term window, but this doesn’t really solve the problem,” says Kilbridge. Medium-density developments go a long way toward meeting the challenge of adding affordable and workforce housing in the county, say affordable housing advocates. When many neighbors in Marin hear the term “multi-family,” they mount opposition groups, which is what happened in Novato. Many opponents conjure images of monolithic inner-city housing projects out of character in Marin neighborhoods, the type of housing no one is proposing here. Newer models for medium-density affordable and workforce housing look like any other Marin housing development. And with quality management and tenant (or owner) selection, the inhabitants of these homes are indistinguishable from other residents in the neighborhood, say affordable housing proponents. Recognizing the problem of perception versus reality, part of MCF’s grant program focuses on increasing public support for affordable projects. Its funding helps support a partnership between the NonProfit Housing Association of Northern California and the Greenbelt Alliance to promote the idea that workforce housing

Living la Vida Local As part of its effort to showcase the realities of affordable housing, Live Local will conduct a tour March 5 of workforce housing developments for residents, planners and “decision-makers.”The tour, via bus, will begin at the Next Key Center, 1385 North Hamilton Parkway, Novato, at 9am and last until about 2pm. The event is free and lunch will be provided. Seating is limited. RSVP with Live Local (www.livelocalmarin.org/register-for-event) by Feb. 28.

is part of a symbiotic relationship in the community, benefiting the environment, neighborhoods, local economies and also protecting open space from sprawl. “It’s a multi-year initiative,” says Diane Spaulding, the housing association’s executive director. The initiative has given birth to Live Local Marin, a new effort with its own website (livelocalmarin.org). Spaulding says reliable data about affordable housing is hard, if not impossible, to find. To remedy that situation, the housing association has been compiling a report that it will release soon. The data can help cities like Novato engage in a rational debate and also meet state housing goals. The housing association is dedicated to dispelling the myths “of who lives in affordable housing and who needs it.” The goal is “to turn a not-in-my-backyard approach to a yes-inmy-backyard approach.” < Contact the writer at peter@pseidman.com.

Welcome to the Neighborly! On Feb. 16, a new Novato affordable housing group announced its launch—Stand Up for Neighborly Novato was co-founded by a collection of active community members with a goal to “advocate for reasonable housing.” Neighborly Novato co-founder Annan Paterson describes Novato’s workforce housing element as being “at a crossroads.” “Our upcoming decisions on housing will determine if we continue to live in a vibrant, neighborly town,” says Paterson, “or become a place that prices out retirees and young families, has struggling small businesses and more congested streets and highways as Novato’s workers are forced to commute here.” Others in the group include Lynne Wasley, chair of United for Safe Schools Novato; Pamela Griffith Pond, former director of Marin Interfaith Worker Justice; Marie Chan, vice president of Sustainable Novato; Katie Crecelius, co-founder of the Marin Environmental Housing Coalition; and Marla Fields, vice president of Sustainable Novato. Fields says the group would also like to raise the community’s dialogue about affordable housing to a more informed level.“Novato’s housing debate should be a fact-based, respectful community dialogue that includes all voices and is focused on making Novato a more neighborly community,” Fields says.

TWO MILL VALLEY attorneys are working to save a white supremacist murderer from the death penalty. Prosecutors allege that Frank Souza, a San Quentin inmate serving a life sentence for killing a homeless man in San Jose, fatally stabbed inmate Edward Schaefer on a prison exercise yard in July. In November, a grand jury indicted the tattooed inmate on murder charges with special circumstances—lying in wait and having previously been convicted of murder. Either special circumstance could bring the 32year-old inmate the death penalty. Souza has not yet entered a plea to the charges he murdered the killer of 9-year-old Melody Osheroff. But his attorneys—Gerry Schwartzbach and Eric Multhaup—this month filed a motion attacking imposition of the death penalty as unconstitutional.

Schwartzbach, a high-profile criminal defense attorney, and Multhaup, an appellate capital defense attorney, contend bringing a deathpenalty case against Souza violates the U.S. and California Constitutions. They argue that the courts have said the ultimate punishment must be reserved only for the most extreme offenses, but California lawmakers and ballot initiatives have so expanded the circumstances under which prosecutors can seek death that determining what constitutes a capital crime has become an “arbitrary and capricious scheme.” They allege the scheme violates the ban against cruel and unusual punishment of the Eighth Amendment, the due process clause of the 14th Amendment and the California Constitution. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that prosecutors may seek the ultimate sentence only under special, aggravating circumstances. But the number of special circumstances—28—has

Souza’s attorneys contend the California statute outlining special or aggravating circumstances that carry Schwartzbach is specifically attacking the the death penalty has “lost its capacity to perform the ‘lying in wait’ special circumstance—since Souza allegedly committed the murder constitutionally required narrowing function.” Souza’s lawyers also are attacking the lying-in-wait ‘in broad daylight in front of 100-plus witnesses.’ special circumstance in particular because they say it can be applied in most murders, making crimes including the circumstance indistinguishable from most other first-degree murders. “The lying-in-wait special circumstance has undergone a metamorphous from a specific 12 PACIFIC SUN FEBRUARY 18 - FEBRUARY 24, 2011

WHEN AARON OSHEROFF was in the hospital recovering from an accident that killed his daughter, his Novato neighbors built him a wheelchair ramp, landscaped his front yard and raised his living-room floor to eliminate a step they feared he would never again be able to take. Osheroff did lose his leg to amputation. But, with the help of his physical therapist wife, Kimberly, he quickly got out of his wheelchair. This month, he has begun strapping his newborn boy into a front baby carrier and walking the same 1.7-mile route he used to walk every evening with his daughMelissa, Kimberly, Aaron and bouncing baby Noah. ter, the walk the two were taking the night he lost Melody in the crosswalk. The Osheroffs had not planned to have a third child. In May 2009, their family was complete with 9-year-old Melody and 6-year-old Melissa. Osheroff and his oldest were walking home holding hands, getting ready to crawl into bed and read, when habitual drunken driver Edward Schaefer sped through the stop sign at San Marin Drive and San Carlos Way on his Harley. In early 2010, Kimberly Osheroff, 40, decided she wanted another baby. Melissa convinced her father. Born Nov. 14, Noah Osheroff has brought joy back to the Osheroff family. “When Melody was murdered,” says Aaron Osheroff, 42,“Melissa told me her children wouldn’t have cousins.” Melissa, 8, listens intently as her father speaks in their Novato living room about a mile away from the crosswalk where her sister was killed. She says she loves to play with her own cousins. “We wanted Melissa to have a sibling,” Osheroff says. “Schaefer murdered my daughter. But Melissa can still have a brother, and I can have a son.We’re blessed that he’s with us.” For Kimberly Osheroff, Noah represents a break from the painful past. “For me, he’s like a new, fresh beginning for our future, and it’s nice he didn’t have to live through any of that stuff,” she says. “He’ll hear about it,” Aaron Osheroff says.Then he looks at the baby, smiles and adds:“He’s just a bundle of joy.” Kimberly Osheroff says she wanted to name the baby Noah because the name means “comfort” in Hebrew and because Melody loved animals. Once, she took Melody to a church to see a friend’s violin recital, and the girl made her way to the front pew. Instead of watching the violinist, however, the bookworm found a Bible and read through the story of Noah’s ark. Noah starts to cry. He’s hungry, and he wants his mother. “It’s a lot of work, this 24/7 mothering,” Kimberly Osheroff says. “Good times can still exist,” Aaron Osheroff says. “Schaefer didn’t take that from us. Although this is a lot of work. I will say that. “At one point, I didn’t want to be here. I just did not want to be here. Over time, that’s changed. It’s gotten to where I do. Melissa and Noah are the biggest parts of that.” These nights, he and Noah walk the walk he used to walk with Melody. But he crosses the intersection where he lost Melody from the other side of the street.—Ronnie Cohen

prohibition against ambush murders to its current essentially unfettered reach to include cases such as this one, where defendant is alleged to have walked up to the decedent in broad daylight in front of 100-plus witnesses and stabbed him,” the defense motion says. “The requirement that the perpetrator watch or wait for an opportunity to act is similarly a non-distinguishing factor, particularly in the context of a prison situation where the defendant is placed in the proximity of the decedent by the institution directive, not by the individual’s initiative. “Finally, the ‘position of advantage’ language is nebulous, as demonstrated by the circumstances of this case, where the reports show that defendant’s only ‘position of advantage’ was that he was in possession of a prison-made weapon while the decedent was not.” Though the Marin County District Attorney’s Office has charged Souza with two special circumstances, it has yet to decide whether to seek the death penalty. Judge Paul Haakenson is expected to hear arguments on the motion to strike the special circumstances next month. An ardent death-penalty opponent, Schwartzbach worked without pay for 13 years to free another white supremacist from prison. Glen “Buddy” Nickerson spent nearly 19 years behind bars for two murders he did not commit. Like Souza, Nickerson had racist and anti-Semitic tattoos all over his body. When he left prison in 2003, Nickerson had the tattoos removed, partly out of respect for his Jewish lawyer and also because they no longer represented his views, Schwartzbach said.—Ronnie Cohen

and I vaguely remember that he did say... I know he did say, ‘Get me off this yard before I bleed to death.’” Schaefer died from his wounds that night at Marin General Hospital. His order to the prison lieutenant as he lay dying matched his public persona during his court hearings and trial for Melody Osheroff’s death. Still bearing the scars of the 2009 accident, Schaefer appeared in court with his face bruised and his arm in a sling. When a news photographer pointed a camera in his direction, Schaefer flipped him off. O

OFFICER EBERLY TOLD the 19 grand jurors and five alternates that when he handcuffed Souza, he noticed blood on his hands, pants, socks and legs. Eberly asked Souza his cell number. After telling the officer he was in the bottom bunk of cell 119, Souza added, “Make sure my stuff gets to me. All my stuff is packed up in a box underneath my rack.” Officer Dustin Tierney said Souza walked by his desk as he was being escorted out of the unit and mentioned then that he had packed his property, a sign Tierney interpreted to mean the inmate knew he would be going to a cell in a higher custody level. “It indicates that they knew that they were going to the hole is what we call it,” Tierney said. Michael Pilacelli of the prison’s investigative services unit said inmates routinely pack 14 PACIFIC SUN FEBRUARY 18 - FEBRUARY 24, 2011

their belongings in anticipation of being moved to a lockup unit to avoid having their property mixed up with their cellmate’s. After the stabbing, Pilacelli said he went to Souza’s cell, threw back the blanket in the upper bunk and saw a hole in the metal bed platform. Pilacelli said he believes Souza may have used a metal binder clip to punch out a piece of metal fashioned into a knife measuring about 7 inches long by 1-3/8 inches wide, and believed to have killed Schaefer. Testimony revealed that the bone crusher stabbed Schaefer seven times in his neck, back and side—slicing his carotid artery in half and rupturing his jugular vein. A prison officer estimated it would take eight hours to scrape out a bone crusher with a binder clip or a fingernail clipper. He said inmates put tooth powder mixed with water onto elastic to create a sandpaper-like material to sharpen metal pieces into knives. The grand jury transcript says Souza’s cellmate, identified as an inmate named Snyder who slept in the bed from which correctional officers believe the weapon was crafted, had been on the yard in a group of 10 inmates with Souza and Schaefer at the time of the stabbing. The report, however, says nothing about Snyder’s possible role in fashioning the weapon or in Schaefer’s death. No one but Souza has been charged with the killing. Asked about Snyder’s connection to Schaefer’s death, Brady said he could not comment on the facts of a current case. But he added: “Our standard for charging all cases

The entrance to North Block—also known as ‘condemned row’—where Souza would be sent if convicted of murder with special circumstances.

is whether or not we can ultimately prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt to a jury.” In summing up the evidence for the grand jury, Brady offered his view of the case. “I would argue... that Mr. Schaefer was killed because of his commitment offense, because he was a child killer.” When Souza left his cell that July morning, Brady said he must have had the bone crusher with him. Schaefer was walking back and forth on the yard, Brady said, when Souza stabbed him from behind. “That is taking advantage of a surprise attack for purposes of lying in wait,” he said. “When he left his cell on that day,” Brady said, “he knew what he was going to do.

He had a plan. He... was going to wait for the perfect time to do it. He did it with the bone crusher weapon, and he did it for the purpose of essentially executing a person who killed a young girl.” The last time a prisoner was killed at San Quentin was in 1997, when an inmate stabbed to death condemned murderer Jimmy Palma. Palma’s killing also took place on an exercise yard. His Southern California victims included a 5-year-old girl and an infant boy. < Contact Ronnie Cohen at ronniecohen@comcast.net.

L

ast week in a frenzy of pre-spring cleaning I came upon one of my favorite cookbooks, which made me think of its author, wondering how she is faring these days. The next morning a moving tribute to her appeared in a blog where chef Gayle Pirie, co-owner of San Francisco’s Foreign Cinema and Show Dogs restaurants, wrote about Bay Area food doyenne Marion Cunningham. Serendipity. Cunningham has long been a presence on the local scene, a California-born writer whose love of American cooking informed The Fannie Farmer Baking Book and her complete revision of The Fannie Farmer Cookbook, a culinary classic. She contributed articles to top food magazines, taught classes and wrote a column for the San Francisco Chronicle. She was a restaurant supporter of the most loyal sort, driving her Jaguar from Walnut Creek almost every night to dine in the city’s latest or old familiar places, a striking woman with white hair, her signature outfit a crisp white shirt under a tailored jacket. She has been very much missed recently. Age and taxing health problems now keep her from those dining pleasures. When Cunningham turned 89 this month Pirie staged a supper at Foreign Cinema to celebrate her birthday, showcasing many of Cunningham’s beloved simple foods: biscuits, meatloaf, blue cheese crumble on iceberg lettuce, her famous raised waffles. Her 1987 cookbook, The Breakfast Book, is the one I came across that afternoon. It’s one of my all-time favorites for the caring attention she paid to a meal that is so often underappreciated. Her recipes are flawless; the results are delicious. Adding to the serendipity is the fact that I had been thinking of writing a story about breakfast and here was the perfect inspiration. Hardly anything makes me happier than eating exactly what I want each morning, responding to my mood, the temperature, what’s best in the market or in my kitchen. Breakfast is also an easy way to entertain. Call it brunch if you must, but concentrate on breakfast dishes. There’s something relaxed and happy about a late morning or even midday gathering where friends or families get together for a few hours with a menu made from relatively inexpensive ingredients. Alcohol is obviously optional; no extravagance is necessary. Other advantages? The party is over while there is still plenty of time for doing other things that day, and nobody suffers from staying out too late. The recipes that follow are from Cunningham’s fine book. The foods are appealing whether skies are blue or rain is falling, served indoors or outdoors, ideal for February’s fickle weather.

---------------------This first choice is a porky, herbal entree with flavors that enhance its simple origins. “This is extremely good, hot or cold: it sets nicely and it slices easily, without crumbling,” Cunningham writes. “Of course, a good ham loaf depends on good ham.”

Ham Loaf 4 servings 3 cups ground ham 1-1/2 pounds ground pork 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon crumbled dried thyme 1 whole bay leaf, crumbled 1 cup fresh bread crumbs (preferably dark rye bread crumbs) 1 egg, lightly beaten 1/2 cup milk

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a medium-size loaf pan. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, tossing until well combined. Lightly pack into the loaf pan. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until the fat is bubbling around the edges. Remove and pour off any excess fat. Allow to set for 10 to 15 minutes in the pan before turning out. Serve hot or cold. ---------------------A good meatless breakfast dish is a version of the all-American “strata.” Cunningham’s has a more poetic name. She writes, “Featherbed Eggs are layers of bread and custard with the addition of cheese or fruit or a favorite something (as long as it isn’t too moist or liquid). The joy of this dish is that it must be prepared the day before, or at least six hours before baking, so it is all ready well in advance of need.”

Featherbed Eggs 4 servings 6 slices bread, buttered Salt and pepper to taste 1-1/2 cups grated sharp Cheddar, Gouda, Provolone, Monterey Jack or any other melting cheese 1-1/2 cups milk 6 eggs, slightly beaten

Arrange the slices of bread in a single layer in a shallow, buttered baking dish. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the grated cheese evenly over the bread. Combine the milk and eggs, and stir until blended. Pour the milk mixture over the bread and cheese and refrigerate at least 6 hours, or overnight. As the dish will be chilled when you are ready to bake it, start it in a cold 350 degree oven. Bake for about 1 hour, or until the bread custard is puffy and lightly golden. ----------------------

A homemade sweet is a perfect ending for breakfast.

Apple and Walnut Coffee Cake One 10-inch tube cake 1/2 pound butter, room temperature 1 cup sugar 3 eggs 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup sour cream 1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped apple (peeled or unpeeled) 1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan or Bundt pan. Put the butter in a large mixing bowl and beat for several seconds. Add the sugar and beat until smooth. Add the eggs and beat for 2 minutes, or until light and creamy. Put the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl and stir with a fork to blend well. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat until smooth. Add the sour cream and mix well, then stir in the apples and walnuts. Spoon the batter into the pan.

Papa don’t preach

Takeout expansion at Sol Food highlights a month of hot food action

I just spent Valentine’s Day taking dating advice from my octogenarian dad

by Pat Fu sco

by N ik k i Silve r ste in

Now there’s nothing standing between you and Sol Food’s bistec encebollado.

IT’S GETTING BETTER ALL THE TIME Hard to remember when there has been so much action on the Marin dining scene! Openings, changes and a reduction in closures make this a pretty exciting time to be eating out hereabouts. Success breeds success and two popular establishments have expanded. Rustic Bakery, the little Larkspur source for fine organic goods, opened its Novato venue this week, bringing a new cafe to 1407 Grant Ave. (415/878-4952), with room for exhibition baking—to be viewed right through the windows of the storefront. Owners Carol Levalley and Josh Harris make sure everything is created in-house and the ingredients arrive from points as close as the organic gardens at College of Marin’s Indian Valley campus as well as local farmers markets. The bright Novato dining space (larger than Larkspur’s) has comfortable seating for breakfast and lunch—sandwiches, salads, soups...Sol Hernandez, the mama behind enormously popular Sol Food in San Rafael, has solved one of the problems facing owners of crowded spaces: she acquired the space next door to handle all to-go orders and added equipment for turning out poultry and pork cooked rotisserie style. This means that customers eating in the tropical atmosphere of the neon green building will not have to wait in line so long, and takeout customers will be able to grab and go. The rosticceria menu includes dinners (chicken or ribs, beans and rice, plantains, salad and garlic bread) and meat-only orders. Orders can be placed online for pickup, www.solfoodrestaurant. com. Hours at Sol Food and next-door La Bodega are 7am-midnight Monday-Thursday; 7am-2am Friday-Saturday, and 8ammidnight Sunday. 415/451-4765. BREAK MOM’S RULE—EAT AND PLAY A March debut is expected in Sausalito for Bar Bocce, housed in what was Paradise Bay, 1250 Bridgeway. With chef Robert Price (Buckeye Roadhouse, Bungalow 44) in charge of the pizzeria, an added diversion will be bocce courts right outside.

NEW TO THE AVENUE San Anselmo’s southern commercial neighborhood has been in a state of flux, so it’s nice to see fresh paint at the corner building where Marin Yogurt Company just opened its doors. The home of premium frozen yogurt with choices of all-natural toppings is owned by Marin ultrarunner Dean Karnazes. Its raspberry-pink and lime-green walls lend a mood just right for healthful snacking. (245 San Anselmo Ave., 415/485-4441)...Down the street a bit, construction work is going on at the former Playdate Cafe with rumors that an Italian-style bakery (with a cafe?) will move in there. The property is registered to Dana and Jennifer Sulprizio, who ran the Olema Inn for nine years. THE MORE THE MERRIER Add another restaurant to the county’s Italian roster: Don Antonio Trattoria on Tiburon’s Ark Row. Most recently housing Cottage Eatery, this small cozy setting is home to a venture by veteran restaurateurs Antonio Volpicelli and Eduardo Pizzuto. Its menu covers familiar favorites, but among the starters are some seasonal surprises. Dinner hours are 5-9:30 Tuesday-Sunday. 114 Main St., 415/435-0400. A BIG EFFORT FOR A SMALL CHILD Owner Shahram Bijan hopes for an outpouring of support on March 1 at Toast Novato when A Day for Dylan will help a local family faced with health and financial challenges. Five-year-old Dylan Levy was born with a liver defect and his father, Noah Levy, donated part of his liver to his son earlier this month. Bijan is allocating 20 percent of the day’s sales to a fund for mounting medical expenses; there will be an ongoing raffle and silent auction as well. Toast is at 5800 Nave Dr. (Hamilton Marketplace); 415/382-1144. Details about the family online at www. dylanwlevy.com. A NIGHT IN ITALY, RIGHT HERE AT HOME Wines from Sicily and Tuscany will star at Piazza D’Angelo’s Italian Winemaker Dinner in Mill Valley Feb. 24 (7-9pm) when winemaker Alessandro Cellai will visit to talk about the featured varietals. A five-course tasting menu will be paired with bottles from two wineries, Feudi del Pisciotto and Rocca di Frassinello. Cost, exclusive of tax and tip, is $45 per person. Reserve at rsvp@sfcitydish. com or 415/388-2000. < Contact Pat at patfusco@sonic.net.

A

conversation between an 80-something-year-old man and his 40-something-year-old daughter: Me: Dad, a reporter just interviewed me about being single on Valentine’s Day. Dad: Why you? Me: Don’t you remember? I write a column called Single in the Suburbs. Clearly, I’m a recognized authority on being single. Dad: I remember. I was just hoping you had become an authority on being married with children. Valentine’s Day ranks up there with Christmas on my list of commercialized, excessive holidays. My single friend Doug renamed it Singles Awareness Day, SAD for short. Frankly, my mother and father do an excellent job keeping me aware of that fact every day of the year, so I don’t need SAD. Needless to say, I stayed home alone on the lovers’ day, eating the two-pound box of chocolates given to me by a dog that I occasionally baby-sit. Anyway, the important thing is that I felt loved. My dog park gal pals, Kim and Molly, fared better on Valentine’s Day. They had dates and received gifts from human men. Jonathan and Jerry, my gossip buddies, weren’t surprised. They think Kim and Molly are the prettiest women in the park. Even in grubby dog park attire, hair in a ponytail and makeup-less, those two shine. If you read the last column, you may recall Kim joined Match.com to provide her photos and profile to a man who promptly dissed her. Thinking she wasted her money, she was relieved when good-looking and geographically desirable Rory contacted her through the dating site. They met and had instant chemistry. All was going well for several weeks, until the day Kim discovered something wasn’t quite right. Down there. “He gave me something,” Kim said. “I’m going to kill him.” “Calm down,” I counseled. “Go see your doctor.” “I am. Today at 11,” she responded. “I already told Rory.” “Accused him, you mean,” I said. “He deserves it. I’m going to kill him.” “You mentioned that twice now. Have you thought about how you’re going to kill him?” “No, I’m not that far along yet,” Kim said. Figuring Rory was safe for the time being, I made Kim promise to call me as soon as she left her doctor’s office. Turns out, Kim had an ingrown hair, which Rory had absolutely nothing to do with. (In fact, it has to do with her compulsive waxing and electrolysis, but I doubt you want any more details than that.) She let her beau know they were clean. Poor guy hadn’t

been eating or sleeping, but rather than being upset about her untoward suspicions, he was happy that their relationship could continue. Personally, I find it impressive that Kim was able to create a full-blown drama over a strand of hair and still have a date for Valentine’s Day. Rory’s a keeper. Molly also met her new boyfriend over the Internet. Kind of. Tom was her high school sweetheart. He thought of her frequently over the last 30 years, but was sure that such a wonderful woman was happily married. Curiosity got the better of him last Thanksgiving and he typed her name into Google. They’ve been dating ever since. Though he lives in Monterey, Tom drives to Sausalito at least once a week to see Molly. He picks her up, takes her out, drops her off and makes the 125-mile trip home after every date, because Molly’s very Catholic mother lives with her. Tom’s a keeper too. Respectful of and somewhat amused by Molly’s traditional mother, he’s a thoughtful and patient man. Kim and Molly are both in their 40s and neither has been married. Ditto for Rory and Tom. I realize this is the pot calling the kettle black, but I’m suspicious of people who make it this far in life without at least one brief marriage. Sure, we talk a good game about demanding careers and fear of divorce keeping us single, but don’t you wonder? Daddy issues? Meth addict? Sociopath? “You’re a cynic, Nikki,” says Molly. “There’s no dark secret,” Kim laughs. “We’re just immature.” So, while alone on Valentine’s Day, stuffing thousands of calories in my mouth, I decide Kim has something there. We single, 40ish folks need to reframe our search for Mr. or Ms. Right. We’re not looking for someone to grow old with—we’re seeking someone to grow up with. With that in mind, I posted a new profile on J-Date and I’m happy to report that my inbox is full. Another conversation between an 80-something-year-old man and his 40something-year-old daughter: Me: Dad, I’m on a Jewish dating website and some nice men have responded. Even two doctors. Dad: Good. Try not to find anything wrong with them. Me: What does that mean? Dad: That means, I’m not getting any younger and neither are you. Me: Goodbye, Dad. Dad: Wait. The doctors, are they specialists? < Email Nikki at nikki_silverstein@yahoo.com.

Cip off the ol’ Block Jesse Block’s three-DVD set a real whammy for late Marin legend John Cipollina by G r e g Cahill

S

tep into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio, and you’ll be greeted by a towering rock artifact that serves as a shrine to Marin guitarist John Cipollina, best known for his work with the hippie-era band Quicksilver Messenger Service. The exhibit, located right inside the front door, includes a strange-looking stack of speaker cabinets, amplifiers and vintage special effects topped by six brass Wurlitzer horns, all looming above a solitary red Gibson SG guitar with black bat wings painted onto the body. The memorabilia pays tribute to one of the founding fathers of the San Francisco sound, a frequent flier at the Fillmore and Avalon ballrooms. Cipollina was a classically trained guitarist whose raw, unorthodox acid-rock style was built around fingerpicking and the liberal use of his guitar’s whammy bar.

Formed in 1965, Quicksilver Messenger Service is considered the archetype of the San Francisco psychedelic sound.

Rolling Stone magazine ranked him as No. 32 on its list of 100 Greatest Rock Guitarists of All Time. “If a stallion could sing,” the late rock impresario Bill Graham once said, “it would sound like John’s guitar.” Last year, Cipollina, who died in 1989 at age 45 from emphysema, was named as one of 12 nominees for inclusion in the Hall of Fame. Though he was passed over this year for induction, Cipol-

lina’s sister Antonia has paid tribute to her older brother by co-producing a threeDVD box set that should help to establish his place in rock history. Recoil: John Cipollina in Music and in Memory, directed by Jesse Block, is packed with insightful interviews, warmhearted reminiscences, vintage concert footage and rare home movies and photographs that capture the guitarist with his family (including his famous brother, Mario, bassist with Huey Lewis and the News) and at work and play. The centerpiece of the set is Electric Guitarslinger, the 54-minute rockumentary by Block and Jim Draper that premiered in 1991 at the Mill Valley Film Festival. It’s packed with Marin music history, recounting Cipollina’s exploits with his high school band, the Swingin’ Deacons, and his local adventures in Mill The 32nd greatest rock guitarist of all time, according to ‘Rolling Stone,’ died of emphysema in 1989.

The second disc includes interviews with such friends and admirers as Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia, frequent collaborator Nick Gravenites and more than a dozen other former bandmates and colleagues. Garcia, who notes that Cipollina’s playing was “part of my cell structure, part of my DNA,” called his colleague’s style “tasteful, original, elegant, important, difficult and cantankerous.” Cipollina performed or recorded on numerous occasions with the Grateful Dead and its extended family of musicians. The third disc captures his reverie in the mood and music of those halcyon times through concert footage of Quicksilver’s 1975 reunion concert as well as clips of Copperhead, Thunder and Lightning, Terry and the Pirates, the Dinosaurs and Cipollina with rock ’n’ roll legend Link Wray, one of his guitar heroes. Those performances showcase Cipollina’s often brilliant playing, which, unlike that of many others from the era, hasn’t lost its luster. He was both fixed to a bygone era and timeless. < Chime in with Greg at gcahill51@gmail.com.

Still, Maniac Cop 3: Badge of Silence notwithstanding, we’re confident the third installment of the Pacific Sun Oscar Challenge will be our most successful yet. Here’s the challenge: Select a winner in all 24 categories, and if you can correctly pick more than our on-staff movie experts—we’ll announce our predications in the Feb. 25 issue—you’ll win tickets for two to a film at the Christopher B.

BEST BET Never say ‘Never’ again “We have this amazing country—but we’ve forgotten what we have, and we’ve become too lazy to fight for it,” declares comic-monologist Christopher Titus (Norman Rockwell is Bleeding), outlining the premise of his outrageous new solo show NEVERLUTION. “Because of that,” he adds, cheerfully,“we are slowly sliding into extinction.” Anyone who’s seen Titus in action, or saw his groundbreaking, self-titled Fox sitcom from 2000 to 2002, won’t be surprised that from such dark material the raw-and-ready-to-rumble Liberty or death? Christopher Titus will have the former, through Sunday at the Marine’s Memorial comic is able to mine some truly hilari- Amphitheatre. ous gems. The touring production has landed in San Francisco for a five-performance run before heading out across the country. Coming as it does on the heels of the recent revolution in Egypt, the new show couldn’t be better timed,Titus says.“I literally cried when I saw what those people accomplished—because that’s the kind of thing we used to accomplish,” he remarks. “Yesterday, on CNN, they were showing this dude from Egypt, and he was screaming, ‘Give me liberty or give me death!’ And I was like, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa! Those are our words! You can’t steal our words!’ But then I thought,‘Oh, We don’t use them anymore anyway. Go ahead.’” In the show, a fast-paced treatise on why America needs its own new revolution—and why we’re unlikely to ever make it happen—Titus poses a lot of questions, but stops short of suggesting any answers.“I don’t have any solutions,” he laughs.“I just have a point of view. I’ll tell you this, though. What’s wrong with America is the fault of Americans. It’s not illegal immigration’s fault that we’re in trouble, it’s our fault for going to Home Depot and picking up six of those guys to build an un-permitted bathroom on a house we can’t afford. That’s the problem.” Through Feb. 19 at the Marine’s Memorial Theatre, 609 Sutter. St., S.F. 8pm.

RED delivers. The comic popcornthriller with the cast of all-star familiars (of a certain age) is a bright-enough spark for a dark winter’s night. Without a serious bone in its threadbare body—higher-ups in Washington are trying to take out former CIA black ops known as “Retired: Extremely Dangerous” or REDs—the yarn begins in sub- No one ‘comes out of retirement’ quite like urban Ohio where ex-agent Bruce Willis Helen Mirren. enjoys his solitary pretend life, having no apparent need for his deadly skill set. He has a long-distance flirtation with his pension check provider, Mary-Louise Parker. They share an enthusiasm for romance novels. When this blissful scenario erupts irreversibly, Bruce’s ever-reliable Die Hard persona kicks in and we’re off on a scenic spree to collect the rest of the band of ex-assassins: Morgan Freeman in a New Orleans retirement home; John Malkovich among the alligators in the Everglades; and Helen Mirren at her Vermonty B&B—while government agent Karl Urban determines how to rub out the band of wrinklies. Everybody sports the noisiest guns but Parker, who manages to murder us all with her droll one-liners.—Richard Gould

PUBLIC NOTICES CONTINUED FROM PAGE 25

Week of February 17-23, 2011

ARIES (March 20 - April 19) Get out the scissors and colored construction paper. No matter what your job, you are encouraged to think creatively about your current projects. As you are quite innovative through Monday, you can find unique solutions to whatever problems you encounter. If you have Monday off, make sure you take advantage of having the mushy Moon in your relationship house. And, if you don’t have Monday off, take a really long lunch break... with your sweetie. TAURUS (April 20 - May 19) Feeling a bit like nobody loves you? Friday’s Full Moon amplifies your emotions at the same time that gloomy Saturn has a dampening effect on your ruler, sociable Venus. Fortunately, by Saturday, you’re ready to have a good time. On Wednesday, your primary relationship takes center stage. That leftover Valentine’s Day chocolate fudge cake that you stashed away? Time to share. GEMINI (May 20 - June 20) Your ruler (curious Mercury) meets up with opposing influences this week. Me-me-me Mars suggests doing whatever you want, no matter what others think. Compassionate Neptune encourages selfless actions that ignore your own desires in favor of the needs of others. So, if you find yourself shopping for an expensive shirt that you then turn around and give away, you know why. CANCER (June 21 - July 21) Friday and Saturday are your days to get everything organized and tidied up. It’s a holiday weekend, so you still have Sunday and Monday to relax with your pals. Meanwhile, the Sun moves into the mystically compatible sign of Pisces. For the next month, you may encounter people who encourage you to open up to metaphysical viewpoints. Even the most practical Cancer secretly believes in the supernatural. LEO (July 22 - August 22) On Friday, your ruler (the creative Sun) leaves the intellectual sign of Aquarius to enter the imaginative sign of Pisces. If you’ve been writing an instruction manual on computer networking, put it aside. You’ll be happier writing a fantasy novel or developing a new trick for your magic show. By Wednesday, sexy Mars has entered your house of intimate experiences. Probably a good time to move your magic into the bedroom… VIRGO (August 23 - September 21) The emotive Moon enters your sign just before the expressive Sun enters your relationship house on Friday. Your love life should now have top priority at least through Saturday. On Monday, your ruler (analytical Mercury) moves into the ethereal sign of Pisces, where logic and reason are not invited. So, for a few weeks, let your imagination call the shots. What’s the worst that could happen? LIBRA (September 22 - October 22) You wish life would lighten up and allow you to return to being a sociable charmer. Unfortunately, this week you are meant to be responsible and perform tasks that are not very much fun. To feel good, your attitude has to change: Instead of finding pleasure in being popular, you need to find satisfaction in a job well done. The former may come with flattery, but the latter comes with an employee of the month plaque. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Have you ever been told to “just be yourself ”? That should be your focus for the next four weeks. Be true to your individuality and don’t be afraid to express yourself. As for work, expand on what you are doing. If your job has you chained to one place doing repetitive tasks, it is likely to be difficult to stick with it. Fortunately, you are on a lucky streak. Forget the job statistics and shoot for the stars. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 20) The Sun is now emphasizing your home life. Those of you who spend more time out of the house than at your abode may find it strangely comfortable to stay in. You may even consider cooking to be an interesting activity—providing you have at least one ethnic cookbook to peruse. By Wednesday, temperamental Mars could stir up trouble with a family member. So much for being comfortable at home… CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 18) Although you are never short on common sense, you can be convinced to spend money on something if you’re sure it’s a practical purchase. The problem with determining what is a realistic need vs. a rash desire has been tricky lately, which explains why the first version of the iPad is sitting on your desk just as the second one is about to be released. The good news is that by Wednesday, your impulse to buy tapers off. AQUARIUS (January 19 - February 17) Thursday night’s Full Moon in your relationship house can make for a sweet ending to your birthday month. Besides, a sophisticated Aquarian friend just informed me that Thursday night is the new Friday night. So, don your favorite party hat and go celebrate with the trendy set. Sunday and Monday are good days for booking your next trip, so check out the spring airfare deals then. As for Tuesday and Wednesday.... well, every rose has its thorn... PISCES (February 18 - March 19) The flamboyant Sun enters your sign on Friday while rambunctious Mars is having a wild time with your ruler, imaginative Neptune. Party time indeed. It may be the bottom of your lunar cycle, but you’re not letting that interfere with the first weekend of your birthday celebration. By Wednesday, flirty Mercury and sexy Mars have joined the Sun in your sign. If your sweetie is the jealous type, this could be a problem…< Email Lynda Ray at cosmicclues@gmail.com or check out her website at www.lyndarayastrology.com 26 PACIFIC SUN FEBRUARY 18, 2011 – FEBRUARY 24, 2011

PET OF THE WEEK

Bring home the

love!

›› ADViCE GODDESS® by Amy Alko n

Q:

I’m a 56-year-old married woman, and, as far as I can tell, I’ve been happily heterosexual all my life— until recently. For the past year, I’ve been thinking about a woman until I can no longer think about anything else. I have such powerful and authentic sexual feelings that I feel compelled to reveal myself to her, but I think she’d probably knock me out. We’re both married to men, and she’s a pretty prominent member in our community I’ve long respected, so there are also elements of danger and hero worship here. There are other reasons to leave this alone, but I’m having a hard time doing it. I just want her so desperately. I should add that I haven’t been in an intimate relationship for a long time, as my husband was an alcoholic who’s now recovering. But, when my desire returned, it wasn’t for him; it was all for her! I have no idea what’s happening. ARGGGH! I think I love her!—Uh-Oh!

A:

Too bad you aren’t 19 and in college. You’d be free to take a little tour of the Isle of Lesbos, change your ringtone to “I Kissed A Girl,” and come out to your parents (then maybe take it back a week later to date the cute guy you met at the GrrrlPower Rally). Unfortunately, once you’re married, “experimenting” with somebody who isn’t your spouse is called “cheating,” regardless of whether you’re “Chasing Amy”—or in your case, Chasing Amy’s Mother. I’m sure this woman is all that and a bag of Indigo Girls CDs, but she’s also a convenient distraction from your difficult marriage already in progress. Adding to the fun is the drama: Your crush is small-town famous, married and has shown zero interest in you, women or becoming a divorced woman with a girlfriend. Of course, getting high on the prospect of forbidden love beats getting over to a marriage counselor: “It’s raining, it’s pouring, my marriage is boring!” Every time you moon over this woman, you’re giving your brain’s motivation and reward centers a hit of the feel-good neurotransmitter dopamine. In doing that, you’re the cartoon horse with the carrot in front of its face, repeatedly engaging your brain in reward-seeking without reward-satisfaction, and revving an attraction into an obsession. Anthropologist Helen Fisher explains in Why We Love: “When a reward is delayed, dopamine-producing cells in the brain increase their work, pumping out more of this natural stimulant to energize the brain, focus attention, and drive the pursuer to strive even harder to acquire a reward.” You get out of a habit the same way you get in: through repetition. Every time you don’t let yourself think about this woman, it’ll be a little easier to not think about her the next time. Of course, you can’t just say, “I’m not going to think about her.” When you start, you need to shove the thoughts out of the way by engaging your memory and your speech (when you’re talking and remembering, you can’t also be obsessing). Have a substitute program at the ready: Recite the Cyrillic alphabet, run through the 50 states and their capitals, and move on to Canada if need be...whatever it takes to pry your mind off how dreamy her varicose veins look when the sun hits them. This brain retraining will be really hard at first, and seem stupid and futile, but it should eventually take if you keep at it. And you do need to keep at it. Only when you stop being the lab rat pushing the little bar for the hit of middleaged married woman will you have clarity on why looking at your husband sends you into a heterosexually vegetative state. Now, maybe you are a lesbian late bloomer, bi-curious or just bored-curious. But, it’s possible that you’re simply angry and resentful and maybe worried that your husband will go back on the sauce. While men can have sex without an emotional connection, women generally need to feel emotionally close to their partner first. You won’t figure out what your deal is by chasing this woman around the hors d’oeuvres table but by taking a hard look at the man and the marriage you still have. You may need to forgive him in order to want him again. You may need more proof that he won’t rekindle his affair with Jack Daniel and Mr. Cuervo. Or, you may need him to be a chick. In which case...sayonara. As successful as many people are in going to A.A. meetings and “humbly asking God to remove their shortcomings,” it’s best if those shortcomings are things like impulsivity and anger issues—not testicles. <
