View from the pear seat

But it takes a brave politician to condone such a cowardly sport... State Sen. Noreen Evans, whose 2nd District spans the northern Sonoma County to Humboldt, needs to learn about North Bay voters. On May 21, Sen. Evans voted against a bill that would end the cruel practice of forcing dogs to chase down bears and bobcats to exhaustion. Hunters can then shoot the helpless animals at point blank range. The majority of Californians oppose this atrocious practice. Notwithstanding Sen. Evan’s shameful vote, SB 1221 passed the California Senate and heads to the Assembly with widespread public support. California voters strongly support humane treatment of all animals. Voters passed two measures against hunting mountain lions and the Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act in 2008. The latter garnered more “yes” votes than any other initiative in California’s history. The North Bay led the state in its support. It appears that Sen. Evans fears the hunting lobby. Yet her vote won her no praise from hunters, who condemned her, claiming she would have supported the bill if her vote had been needed. North Bay voters expect humane leadership. Sen. Evans, stand up for what you know is right. We’re watching. And unlike the hunting lobby, we’ll have your back. Evelyn Woo, Tiburon

On behalf of the Marin County Bicycle Coalition and Marin’s bicycling community, I would like to express my deepest gratitude for the Pacific Sun’s in-depth bicycle/pedestrian coverage in several issues this year. Peter Seidman’s May 18 story [“Bike Support Careens Ahead”] presents the welcome results of a Princeton Survey Research Associates International poll that shows overwhelming bipartisan support for equal or increased federal spending of transportation dollars on bicycle/pedestrian infrastructure. The poll showed 80 percent of Republicans and 88 percent of Democrats supporting such spending. The article also highlights data from a recent report to Congress on Marin’s Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program. The Marin County Bicycle Coalition played a fundamental role in bringing $25 million to the county in 2005 as part of the Federal Transportation Bill and has worked in partnership with the county throughout the life of the program. This report shows the program’s success by demonstrating the extent that spending on nonmotorized transportation projects has helped shift people out of their cars onto their feet or bikes. The report shows a 64.4 percent increase of bicycling in Marin from 2007-2010 due to the significant investment in bicycling infrastructure and programs made here in Marin. None of these improvements would have been possible if it weren’t for the amazing leadership of Marin’s agencies and jurisdictions. The Transportation Authority of Marin has provided unyielding support for a wide range of bicycle/pedestrian projects and programs,

including Safe Routes to School and its work under way to design and build a bridge over Sir Francis Drake Boulevard to connect the Cal Park Tunnel pathway to the Larkspur Ferry Terminal. A great thanks also goes out to all of the cities and towns of Marin, the county of Marin (especially for its work in carrying out the Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program) and SMART for its vision and inherent motivation to make Marin a world-class place for nonmotorized transportation by building a train and pathway. Also of great significance for Marin was mention of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recent “Game Changer” award that was presented to the Safe Routes to School National Partnership, run by Deb Hubsmith who

An age-old discussion Homeless plan gets review, meanwhile Marin ain’t gettin’ any younger... by Pe te r Se i d m an

A

s the county updates its 10-year plan to prevent homelessness, the process provides an opportunity for Marin residents to look in the mirror and ask, “What kind of county do I want to live in?” A series of community meetings held in May started the process to revise Marin’s 10-Year Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness, which the county first crafted in 2006. A county policy steering committee is taking the lead to develop the update. The committee comprises community residents, county staff, city representatives and community providers. The collaborative effort represents a forward-thinking strategy among agencies and individuals involved in the complex work to prevent homelessness. The county has made important strides in tackling the issues surrounding homelessness since the days when grand juries routinely issued chastising statements that the county was failing to meet the challenges that homelessness imposes. Elected officials and service providers faced increasing needs and declining revenue from federal and state sources—and that hasn’t changed. The county now has a policy analyst, Lisa Sepahi, who specializes in homeless issues. According to Sepahi, since that first plan was drafted in 2006, the county has met

8 PACIFIC SUN JUNE 1 - JUNE 7, 2012

“over 80 percent of the plan’s objectives.” Although that sounds exemplary, the true nature of the challenges that homelessness—and potential homelessness— poses for the county still is daunting. Given these challenges, and changes in the way the federal government will allocate money to prevent homelessness, an update is timely. Not to mention how the economic crash of 2008 has affected potential homelessness and the homeless population in the county. A follow-up to last month’s community meetings, a “charrette week” at the end of this month will lead to the formulation of the update. “A charrette is a massive participatory process,” says Sepahi. “It creates transparency and accountability at all levels because it is so open.” A strategic planning process usually takes place behind closed doors, Sepahi adds. It can take two to three years to issue a plan like this one. In the charrette process, the timeline gets radically shortened, and it can happen with stakeholders and elected representatives and service providers all in the same room. “You hear from people with expertise and experience. You also hear from people in the community,” says Sepahi. “It brings diverse groups together.” The update is timely in large part 10 > because the federal government is

Guilty verdicts in Tong Van Le slaying Four San Francisco men were found guilty Wednesday in the murder of Tong Van Le of Novato. Prosecutors said they conspired to kill Le to keep him from testifying in a robbery case. Deandre Blay, Kevin Abram and C. Autis Johnson, all 20, and Larry Blay Jr., 22, were found guilty on all counts in Marin Superior Court, while Anchulita Uribe, 36, mother of Johnson and “sex partner” of Sean Washington, 26, was found guilty of being an accessory after the fact. Washington, who participated in the crime and pleaded guilty to manslaughter, was the prosecution’s star witness. Tong Van Le was killed in September 2008, by a gunshot to the neck, while sitting in his car in the garage of his Hamilton neighborhood home. Le owned a liquor store in San Francisco that was robbed three weeks earlier and he had identified some of the suspects. Assembly votes to nip breastfeeding discrimination The Golden State just got a step closer to improved lactose tolerance, as legislation to include breastfeeding as a protected right under the Fair Employment and Housing Act passed in the state Assembly by a vote of 52-9. California moms and their newborns may soon be free to do as nature intended, nutrition-wise, thanks to AB 2386—which would clarify that breastfeeding be included along with race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, medical condition, marital status, sex, age or sexual orientation as a protected category against discriminatory workplace termination. The bill was written by Napa Assemblyman Michael Allen, who is campaigning to be Marin’s new District 10 Assemblymember, to replace the soon-to-be termed-out Jared Huffman. Under existing law, FEHA makes it is unlawful to discriminate on the basis of sex, which includes gender, pregnancy, childbirth and medical conditions related to pregnancy or childbirth. Allen’s AB 2386 amends the existing statutory definition of “sex” under the FEHA to include breastfeeding, in order to prevent breastfeeding discrimination in the work place. The inspiration for AB 2386 stems from a June 2009 case—Department of Fair Employment and Housing vs. Acosta Tacos—in which a female employee, just back from pregnancy disability leave, was fired for nursing her infant during her lunch break. The Fair Housing Commission ruled that the taco company had denied the employee a right to a discrimination-free work environment based on sex or pregnancy under FEHA law. Breastfeeding is widely accepted in healthcare communities as one of the most important preventive care measures for children’s health. According to the American Medical Association, health benefits are the greatest when babies are exclusively fed breast milk for the first six months of life. Allen, a former registered nurse, says that although California has enacted laws to protect nursing mothers, additional measures need to be taken. “Laws don’t specifically protect nursing mothers from being reassigned to other work, being required to work different shifts, being requested to take additional leave, or from potentially being terminated,” says Allen.“AB 2386 simply clarifies existing workplace protections for nursing mothers and promotes greater acceptance of nursing mothers in the workplace.” The bill will next come to the state Senate for a vote; if it clears the Senate it will be up to Gov. Brown to sign it into law. 10 >

 Three 5th-grade classes V from Bel Aire Elementary School in Tiburon participated this week in a walk-a-thon to raise money for a school in Monrovia, Liberia. While the tally isn’t in yet, the 5th-graders hope to raise $1,800—the cost of building a well in Monrovia. Teachers at the Liberian school informed our local children that students in their school walk four miles every day to collect drinking water for their families. With a well at the school, the children could spend more time in their classrooms and on their education. In a symbolic gesture, the Tiburon students walked four miles, each carrying water. If you’d like to support their fundraising efforts, please contact Judy Noyes at 415/205-1202.

WLast week, my dog Bruno and I walked past a 10-minute oil change shop in Mill Valley. I was shocked when the guys in the garage catcalled to me— whistles, yelps and sophomoric sexual innuendo. I ignored them. When I walked past again 20 minutes later, those wellmannered young men started barking like dogs. I assume they were attempting to communicate with Bruno, though quite possibly, they could have been delivering a specific message to me. Either way, the garage had no cars in the bays, so perhaps the owner should consider that the lull in his business is the result of his staff acting like Zeros. I’ve patronized this premiumservice oil-change shop in the past, but I won’t be going again anytime soon. —Nikki Silverstein

Fraud will keep us together Love is never having to say, ‘I’m being deported by the INS’... by N ik k i Silve r ste in

A

s the busy social butterfly that I am, you can imagine how selective I must be when choosing friends. I have no official rules, but I tend to shy away from spending my precious hours with people who have committed federal offenses. County and state infractions are on a case-by-case basis. Though Jane and Joe are confessed criminals, I like them so much I’ve made an exception. Besides, they never admitted their dastardly deed to the feds and that pesky statute of limitations ran out long ago. With their records clean, I can consort with them as much as I want. Their life of crime began more than 31 years ago, when they met in Carmel, at Mission Ranch, which at the time was a fantastic live music venue. Strangely, Jane wasn’t planning on going out. After all, this was the night that the world would learn who shot JR, and Jane had never missed an episode of Dallas. However, her brothers were going to see It’s a Beautiful Day perform. Jane sure loved their song “White Bird,” so she decided to join the boys for the show. Jane, 20, played in a local rock band. Carefree, she wasn’t looking for anything, especially a relationship. Joe, 27, a Brit, wasn’t looking for a relationship either. He was after a green card. After being married and divorced in England, Joe’s former wife—and son— relocated to California. Wanting to be near his child, he promptly followed. When his ex and kid moved back to Great Britain, Joe wanted to stay with his new love— America. He could remain an illegal immigrant, but that would make it difficult to travel freely to see his little boy. Sometime during Jane and Joe’s chance meeting at the performance, he explained his predicament, showing her photos of his son. Clearly, the only solution was for Jane to marry him. Perhaps stirred by his love of American style or mesmerized by his English accent, Jane agreed to be his wife. To Joe’s credit, he said he didn’t want to pressure her and gave her his number. Jane left the bar with her brothers, immediately sharing the news of her pending nuptials. Their hooting continued as they walked into the door of their parents’ home. “Mom, Dad. Guess what? Jane’s getting married,” her brothers announced. Her parents shook their heads. Just another Jane antic. The following week, almost forgetting about the incident, Jane was driving alone in her car. Pink Floyd’s “Young Lust” blared on the radio. When it got to the part where the phone rings and a British male voice answers, Jane determined that destiny had

sent her to Mission Ranch and it was now instructing her to call Joe. Mind you, this young woman never called a boy in her life. They made a date for the upcoming weekend. Joe brought his best behavior and his English accent. Together, they made a loose business arrangement. Jane would marry him. In return, Joe would buy her better band equipment. She was satisfied with the plan, thinking she’d finally get a new amplifier. They began spending time together, eager to pass the scrutiny of the INS. Getting to know each other led them to like each other. The engaged couple started dating, genuinely. That was when Jane almost backed out, believing it was a bad idea to become emotionally attached to her fiance. Still, she forged ahead. Her friends at work gave her a wedding shower. Each gift contained a note: Return if not married in 90 days. A deal is a deal and Jane is a woman of her word. The couple married three months later in Carson City and moved in together. Jane’s feelings for Joe grew, though she figured she could turn them off when it was time to part ways. She tried to keep perspective. He would walk after receiving the green card. Joe was falling for Jane too, but a nagging question stuck with him. What kind of girl would do this? Finally, his paperwork arrived and he was able to leave the country to visit his son in England. Jane found herself missing him. He missed her, too. When Joe returned, he brought another ring with him, this one a symbol of the love he now felt for her. On their one-year anniversary, Jane’s parents gave them a wedding. Vows, a commitment to lifelong love and a fab reception. “It’s for real,” Jane said. “We’re married. Married.” And, married they’ve remained for 31 years. Joe became a licensed contractor and Jane left her band for a career in marketing. Today, they reside happily in a lovely Mill Valley home. I tell Jane I want an illegal immigrant of my own. “Do you know where they hang out?” I ask. For the record, Jane doesn’t recommend this method of finding a mate. “There was a lot of self-doubt,” she explains. It all worked out in the end. Well, almost. Jane never got her amplifier, but she’s considering forgiving him for that. < Email: nikki_silverstein@yahoo.com

Notorious death row inmate hanged self, say prison officials Convicted child killer James Lee Crummel was found Sunday hanged in his cell, according to officials from San Quentin State Prison. The 68-year-old was on death row for the murder of 13-year-old James Wilfred Trotter, who vanished from his Costa Mesa neighborhood on his way to school in 1979. Crummel was living in Newport Beach in 1990 when he called local police to report that he’d discovered charred human remains while hiking near Ortega Highway in Riverside County. An investigation into the identity of the body led nowhere, as officials mistakenly thought the bones belonged to a female. In 1996, dental records revealed that the body was in fact that of James Trotter, whose case had been left as an unsolved missing persons for more than 16 years. When investigators learned that in 1979 Crummel, a registered sex offender, had been living about a mile from where Trotter disappeared, they closed in for the arrest. In 2004, Crummel was sentenced to death for the murder. Since capital punishment was reinstated in California in 1978, 21 inmates have committed suicide while on death row, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. That’s more than the 13 people who have been executed in the state over that same period of time.

We’re closing the rate gap, says Marin Clean Energy The Marin Energy Authority says it’s narrowing the rate gap between Marin Clean Energy and Pacific Gas and Electric Company—thanks to a filing submitted by PG&E last week to state regulators seeking an increase in electricity rates. According to the MEA, if the rate hike is approved by the California Public Utilities Commission, effective July 1 Marin Clean Energy residential customers “can expect to pay approximately $2.50 more per month than with PG&E’s generation supply.” Commercial customers would pay about $3.31 less in the summer months, but $4.67 more in the winter than PG&E customers. MCE purchases 50 percent of its energy from renewable sources, versus 20 percent from PG&E. The Marin Energy Authority, the state’s first public power provider, is made up of all 11 Marin municipalities and the county—customers are automatically enrolled in Marin Clean Energy unless they choose to “opt out” and stay with PG&E. MEA mailed out its remaining 82,000 opt-out notices to new customers earlier this spring; so far, say authority officials, Less than 20 percent of Marinites have chosen to opt out of the renewable energy program. Marin Energy Authority chairman Damon Connolly says he’s “extremely pleased” with the response thus far to Marin Clean Energy. “We strive to keep our rates stable and affordable while providing a superior product to our customers,” says Connolly, who’s also on the San Rafael City Council.“[We] look forward to helping shape a more sustainable future here in Marin County.” Renowned party planner leaves GSA The Mill Valley man who threw an $800,000 party in Las Vegas for General Services Administration officials is no longer with the GSA, according to a government spokesperson. It was not announced whether he left voluntarily or was let go, but one thing is clear: It wasn’t because he puts on a lousy soiree. Jeff Neely was a “regional commissioner” for the GSA when he and his wife put together the 2010 conference in Sin City that, following a GSA internal investigation, has become emblematic of wasteful federal spending. As of May 24, he is “no longer employed with GSA,” said the agency’s deputy press secretary Adam Elkington via a press statement. The GSA is a relatively little-known federal agency that handles government real estate; it has a mulit-billion dollar budget and more than 10,000 employees. Highlights from the Vegas trip included a magic show, a Hollywood-esque red-carpet entrance and a mind reader who, sadly, failed to reveal what the public would think if such a lavish shindig wound up in the headlines. Neely could still face criminal charges over the incident; the Department of Justice is investigating claims that he used government money to host a private party during the conference, and that he bent rules about supplying food at the conference by creating a mock awards ceremony, which would allow for martinis and other tasty treats. Novato approves plans for new admin building The city of Novato has moved one step closer to its return to downtown—as the City Council voted 3-1 on May 22 to approve construction plans on a new 21,000-square-foot administrative building on Machin Avenue. Councilmember Eric Lucan, a critic of the project, was the lone vote against; Mayor Denise Athas was absent from the meeting. The city will now accept bids from 20 prequalified contractors to oversee the $14.1 million project; last summer the city hired RMW Architecture and Interiors of San Francisco to design the facility, which is expected to be completed in late 2013. The town’s former headquarters surrounding the iconic 19th-century Presbyterian church on Sherman Avenue have been vacant for the past seven years, as city employees were shuffled off to 75 Rowland Blvd., east of Highway 101 near the Sutter hospital in 2005, after the old city facilities—comprised largely of century-old homes originally owned by town founders—were deemed seismically unsafe and condemned. Construction of the new offices will be paid through $17 million in redevelopment agency bonds, which the city has from funds it loaned to its redevelopment agency in 2004. 10 PACIFIC SUN JUNE 1 - JUNE 7, 2012

< 8 An age-old discussion about to change its disbursement strategy. The main grant conduit, the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) Act of 2009 will remain, although it will no longer be sufficient to receive funding and funnel it to local programs without analysis of success. Counties will have to reapply for funding each year and show results detailing their progress toward meeting HEARTH goals. The county already has many organizations dedicated to helping Marin’s homeless population. Homeward Bound operates all three of the county’s homeless shelters—the 40-bed Mill Street Center, the 80-bed New Beginnings Center for single adults in the Hamilton area of Novato, and the Family Emergency Center, which provides emergency housing for 13 families—in a continuum-of-care strategy aimed at accepting clients and moving them through a process that ultimately leads to housing. Unfortunately, the demand has outstripped capacity in the winter months. To meet the challenge, about 30 churches and synagogues have provided emergency shelter—through a collaborative effort by the county, the congregations and St. Vincent de Paul in San Rafael. Last year, the Marin Community Foundation contributed $250,000 to support the shelter program. Buckelew Programs and the Family Service Agency of Marin recently merged to create a model closer to the consolidation of services method of providing help for the homeless population. And there are many other organizations and programs almost too numerous to mention. But it’s not enough. Especially for families and those who are “precariously housed.” Every two years, counties take a oneday snapshot-in-time count of their homeless populations. According to the Marin Homelessness Planning Guide, updated in April 2012, the last count in 2011 revealed a heartening decline in the number of homeless individuals. About 1,220 children and adults were homeless. Forty-two percent were in emergency shelters or transitional housing; 29 percent were without any shelter and living on the streets, in cars or camps; 29 percent were sheltered in other settings, such as motels, jails and accommodations with friends and families. Families with children comprised 35 percent of the population. Among that group of homeless individuals and families were 229 chronically sheltered and unsheltered homeless, 181 people with mental health issues and 366 people suffering from substance abuse. They make up the chronic homeless population, the most fragile homeless, and they receive services from organizations such as Ritter Center. But another much larger population of people in the county includes the pre-

cariously housed. They are just a “missed paycheck” away from losing the roof over their heads, a medical problem away from the streets. And as much as many Marin residents would like to shunt the thought into the shadows, many Marin families are close to the edge in this affluent county. According to the results from the 2011 count, 4,179 precariously housed people lived in Marin—an increase from the 2009 tally, and the 2011 number actually is significantly larger, say service providers. Part of the method the county uses to tally the numbers involves contacting school districts. “If you talk to people in school systems, they will tell you there are a lot of families who are homeless,” says Paul Fordham, deputy director at Homeward Bound. Just looking at the numbers in the one-day count can mask the true nature of the issue. “Many people [in the school districts] don’t want to be counted.” Fordham hopes that the 10-year update will pay attention to the numbers and needs of homeless families and children. “We need to invest in the future of these kids. There needs to be housing for parents, so the kids can go to the same school” without the pressure homelessness puts on them to drop out before they finish high school. “For me personally, I would like to see a lot of discussion around family homelessness and realistic targets for the number of family [housing] units that can be developed, along with other creative solutions.” According to the county’s homelessness planning guide, the current vacancy rate for rental housing in Marin is less than 1 percent. Although Marin is a postcard example of the owner-occupied singlefamily home, when it comes to tackling homelessness, rental housing is key. “A 5 percent rental vacancy rate is considered crucial to permit ordinary rental mobility,” the planning guide states. And even when vacancies become available, many Marin residents, homeless or not, remain on the outside of the affordability index, a situation that can find no remedy without more affordable housing. According to the planning guide, “61,000 Marin workers commute from outside the county. Many of these commuters are unable to afford rent of $1,000 or more. For these households there is only one apartment for every seven workers seeking an apartment at less than $1,000.” That, of course, drives people to rent to the north and east, exacerbating traffic and its ancillary effects. And even though traffic is one of the biggest negatives continually mentioned among Marin residents, a passionate pushback against affordable housing continues. A recent study conducted by the National Low Income Housing Coalition and released locally in March by the Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California, shows that Marin remains the least affordable place in the nation for renters. A Marin worker needs to earn $36.63 an hour, more than $76,000 a year, to afford

conscious, funding-avoidance, tax-averse persuasion should consider that spending money on ameliorating homelessness in its many forms could produce a positive effect on societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bottom line. And, as Sweeney and Fordham and other affordable housing advocates believe, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the moral thing to do. Affordable housing is a critical issue for the old as well as the young. Between 2010 and 2050, the population in the nation 65 years old and older is expected to increase by 120 percent, according to the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Housing Policy. In its Area Plan for 2012-2016, the Marin Division of Aging and Adult Services notes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Marin County older adult populating is increasing at a rate that far surpasses the national rate for this population.â&#x20AC;? Over the last decade, the number of Marin residents 60 years old and older increased by 38 percent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Close to one out of every four residents in the county today is a person 60 or older.â&#x20AC;? The housing needs for an older population, whose numbers as well as median age are increasing, present immediate and escalating challenges. Aging in place is a goal espoused by most service providers today. They see the old nursing home model as a last resort. But as many adults age, they must move to smaller, affordable housing units, which are in short supply in Marin. And (almost) everyone grows old. Many Marin residents are in denial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I HWY.101

the $1,905 rent for a typical two-bedroom rental, according to the report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The median renter household income is $55,000, putting a two-bedroom rental out of reach for 64 percent of the renting population.â&#x20AC;? It will take a multi-pronged approach to lessen the pressures on the precariously housed in Marin. Mary Kay Sweeney, the executive director at Homeward Bound, has an idea. The vacancy rate for ofďŹ ce space at the end of 2011 was 19.2 percent, according to a quarterly report compiled by Cornish & Carey Commercial/ Newmark Knight Frank. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of empty ofďŹ ce buildings,â&#x20AC;? says Sweeney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can we do some conversion projects?â&#x20AC;? A proposal in Sausalito to convert groundďŹ&#x201A;oor business space to housing recently failed to get City Council support. Sweeney says inadequate affordable housing and its effect on the precariously housed population of families and children point to a larger and pressing moral issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have no problem saying every kid deserves to have an education. But we do have a problem saying they deserve to have a house. Education is the third rung, not the ďŹ rst. First you need to guarantee kids housing and food, and then follow that with education.â&#x20AC;? And housing also beneďŹ ts health. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all connected to having a roof over your head.â&#x20AC;? The social costs of inadequate affordable housing may be hidden, but they are substantive. And, say service providers, those of the cost-

integrative of nature, self, the elements and the culture. Later in his career, he says he “wanted to make those places.” Throughout his teen years, Liebermann helped his father on remodels, including the J.P. Morgan estate and an old Flaggdesigned Normandy-French farmhouse on Staten Island. He also helped his father on a remodel of one of the oldest homes in New Jersey, a “picker house” or temporary living quarters for farm workers. “I

Along with these “tremendous experiences,” as he calls them, Liebermann attended the local rural public school with plans to study agriculture, inherit the farm and eventually run it. But fate had other “designs” for the future architect.

was popular, but they all thought I was a weirdo,” he laughs. “It was a school for rich New York people. I was kind of an imposter.” Imposter or not, school officials considered Liebermann a genius, a sentiment that Liebermann humbly recounts with a laugh, “I don’t know where they picked that up!” With a roster of good grades and college applications accompanied by a letter of recommendation from Albert Einstein (a “buddy” of his mother, he says), Liebermann was on his way to Johns Hopkins and Harvard, absorbing a varied mixture of knowledge— he studied archeology, architecture and art history before moving on to receive an MFA in sculpture at the University of Colorado, Boulder (with a stint serving in Korea thrown in for good measure). With a growing passion for the integration of structure and art, Liebermann set his sights on Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home in Arizona—the renowned center for architecture, Taliesin West. Though Taliesin officials informed Liebermann that their waiting list was too long to accommodate him, he soon found himself hitching a ride from Boulder to Albany with a stop-off at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin North campus in Wisconsin. “I remember we arrived in August and it was beautiful and summery there,” he says. “We just drove up, just walked in with no appointment. And even though he traveled a lot, Wright was actually there.” Liebermann remembers the day fondly, the scene beautiful, the residents incredibly kind. “They told me that Wright was taking a nap and I could just wait in his office to have an interview with him,” says Liebermann. “Then I hear this tap, tap, tap—and it was Wright, walking with his cane. “We did the interview. He stood up, I stood up—and he says, ‘Mr. Liebermann, arrive in Arizona at Christmas time.’ “I think he was impressed that I had come all of that way from Boulder to Wisconsin, like I had come in a horse and buggy or down a long dirt road in my car.”

Regardless, Wright knew he was serious. After proving himself a dedicated architect who embraced life at Taliesin, Liebermann was offered permanent residency at the school. But an architectural campus in Arizona was no place to be at the advent of American modernism, and Liebermann came to Marin to assist with what would become Wright’s final project—a county administration building in a San Francisco bedroom community north of the Golden Gate. Perched among the rolling hills along the east side of Highway 101 in San Rafael, the Marin Civic Center looks to some like an intergalactic trading post, a meeting place for diplomats from other worlds. To others, it is a classic example of modern architecture designed by one of the movement’s foremost visionaries. Horizontally stretching across three separate hills and featuring rhythmic circular patterns that predated American feng shui philosophy, the Civic Center’s style has attracted architects in search of inspiration, art students obsessed with the integration of material and the environment and even filmmakers—George Lucas’s THX-1138 and Andrew Niccol’s Gattaca are the most famous examples—who’ve used the facility’s smooth contours and sky-lit interiors to advance their dystopian visions of the future. And it should come as no surprise that anything this different on such a grand scale would face its share of opposition—especially when its legendary creator was no longer around to defend it. Frank Lloyd Wright died April 9, 1959, at the age of 92, when the Civic Center was still three years away from completion. Taliesin architects Wesley Peters and Aaron Green took the reins of the project and faced no small amount of criticisms over their guidance of Wright’s final work. But Liebermann gives credit to the two Wright proteges who, to borrow from Twelfth Night, had “greatness thrust upon them.” “After Wright died, Aaron Green was very political, very smart. He got the project finished even after an impasse,” says Lie- 16>

Novato High Garden Club proves itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;teens can grow their own... by Annie Spiege lman

Let nature be your teacher. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;William Wordsworth

hen Rey Mayoral, principal of Novato High School, asked me to advise the Novato High Garden Club, I really, really tried to say no. My schedule was busy enough. But how could I turn down the opportunity to force a bunch of tech-obsessed teenagers to spend time outdoors in nature and learn how to grow â&#x20AC;&#x153;realâ&#x20AC;? food right outside their classrooms? I could yell at them to put down the Doritos, stop texting and grab a shovel. They will run from creepy-crawly insects, roll their eyes at me and earn community service hours. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a match made in heaven! A week later I met the president of the NH Garden Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Mary Buckley, a bright, eager and self-motivated seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and instantly knew I would ďŹ nd the time to help. The following week, Mary and her vice president, Maddy Wilmott, showed me the sunny garden area. We stared at the seven raised beds ďŹ lled with sad dirt and happy

weeds. They told me the beds had been thriving with vegetables some time ago when another parentcoordinator had been involved, but since she left, the garden had been neglected. I then gave them my sermon about â&#x20AC;&#x153;dirtâ&#x20AC;? learned from my mentor, UC Berkeley soil scientist Stephen Andrews. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dirt is the stuff your nosy next-door neighbor digs up on you. Dirt is what comes out of your vacuum cleaner. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not soil. Soil is alive. What you have here is dirt. Nothing grows in dirt. If we are going to resurrect this garden, we need COMPOST!â&#x20AC;? When I ďŹ nished preaching compost they were still there. They became my n e w B F F s j u s t for listening and looking remotely interested. So, I called in my peeps. Rhonda Moore, of Point Reyes Compost Company, arrived wearing her usual dress and perfectly aged cowgirl boots while driving the company dump truck ďŹ lled with Double-Doody, a ďŹ ne mixture of aged horse and cow manure created by animals living in luxury on organic chow in West Marin. This locally made compost is full of microbial life and in my experience has outperformed any chemical fertilizer. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win-win. You get fast and healthy crops growing without leaching excess chemical fertilizer and toxic pesticides into our local creeks. Try it! You will become my star student. The garden club weeded the beds and added a thick layer of compost to each one. Then we let the compost sit for over a month to get the soil microbes reproducing in their new home as we waited for some warmer weather. In March, we planted seeds donated by Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds and Maddy set up a weekly watering schedule. Garden club students took turns watering the 2,000square-foot garden with two old, tired, leaky hoses. Yup, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how we roll! By late April we had grown almost 50 heads of lettuce, kale, Mizuna and mustard, which we are still sharing with staff, students and neighbors. Along with the edibles are cosmos, wildďŹ&#x201A;owers, nasturtium, sunďŹ&#x201A;owers and Shasta daisies. We chose to grow these ďŹ&#x201A;owers since they invite bees and other pollinators. Many of the good bugs they attract will also eat any bad bugs that come around to mess with our plants. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organic gardeningâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you hire Mother Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crew to do all the dirty work. Why are school gardens so critical 18>

< 17 Cultivating minds now? In his best-selling book, Last Child in the Woods: Saving our Children from NatureDeďŹ cit Disorder, author and journalist Richard Louv writes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Children of the digital age have become increasingly alienated from the natural world, with disastrous implications, not only for their physical ďŹ tness, but for their long-term mental and spiritual health. Outdoor, unstructured play is not just fun but is also profoundly important to raising children who are physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy.â&#x20AC;? Because of the sedentary lifestyle and the abundance of cheap, highly processed food, pediatricians now warn that todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children may be the ďŹ rst generation of Americans since World War II to die at an earlier age than their parents. In the U.S. we are rated number one globally in childhood obesity. Studies conducted by the National Gardening Association show that students who grow their own food are more likely to eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Besides the outdoor education in growing â&#x20AC;&#x153;real food,â&#x20AC;? a school garden promotes healthy mental and physical lifestyles, instills an environmental stewardship ethic, enhances academic achievement in science and encourages community and a sense of place. Plus, school gardens simply look fabulous! â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our garden is centered in a place on campus that gets a lot of trafďŹ c, so the plants and life growing in it are able to be shared by many people,â&#x20AC;? says Mary Buckley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For Principal Mayoral can really shovel it, according to Garden Club observers. students, having this small cacophony of growing plants reminds them that more is elements of a healthy school community and grown at school than the size of your binder or to-do list; there is life.

That led to sessions with hard bop saxophonist Sonny Stitt. In the 1970s, as reggae blossomed on the international stage, Ranglin worked as a session guitarist for the rock-steady band Melodians (“Rivers of Babylon”) and the Wailers (“It Hurts to Be Alone”) and toured with Jimmy Cliff at the peak of his post-The Harder They Come popularity. Ranglin also reunited with Alexander to record a Latin jazz album on the Pablo

Le grindhouse illusion What teenage boy doesn’t dream of girls, Richard Dreyfuss and Dennis Hopper?! by Davi d Te mp l e ton

Writer David Templeton takes interesting people to interesting movies in his ongoing quest for the ultimate post-film conversation. This is not a movie review; rather, it’s a freewheeling, tangential discussion of life, alternative ideas and popular culture.

C

urtains. The first time I dreamed of curtains—the old-fashioned, movie theater kind—I was 9 or 10 years old. Born in 1960, having seen my first movie when I was not even 4 years old (Five Weeks in a Balloon), I grew up watching films in grand movie palaces, the kind with enormous, deep, velvety curtains drawn closed in front of the screen. They would open at the start of the film, and close again, dramatically, after the credits were over. For years, I would have the occasional dream that began and ended the same way— with the opening or closing of a curtain. In my teens, I became aware that my dreams had also begun to have credits at the end. The dream, whatever it was—I dreamed often of dragons, adventures, various girls I went to school with—would wrap itself up, and a series of names and titles would suddenly begin scrolling up the screen of my subconscious: names, names, names, few of which I could ever recall when I finally woke After helming the critically acclaimed ‘Close Encounters,’ Spielberg shocked the Hollywood establishment by signing on to direct a series of subconscious fantasies composed by the hormoneravaged teenage Templeton.

up. I do remember that shortly after the release of Close Encounters of the Third Kind at least a couple of my dreams appeared to have been directed by Steven Spielberg, and after seeing Apocalypse Now, I had a dream that claimed to have been directed not by Francis Ford Coppola, but actor Dennis Hopper, whose appearance in the film, as a crazed American photojournalist with remarkably unhinged style of communication, clearly made a strong impression. For the most part, though, when my dreams include cinematic elements, they are usually just snippets—an image, a character or a situation my brain had elected to borrow from whatever film I saw most recently. I have been led to believe that this is fairly common. In 1996, I met up with an Australian dream expert who was visiting San Francisco, writer Robert Moss, the author of Conscious Dreaming and several other books on the power of dreams. That afternoon, we caught a revival screening of the classic 1964 musical The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, a film neither of us had previously seen, though we’d certainly each heard about it over the years. Partway through the film Moss began chuckling, having realized that, the night before, he’d dreamed two or three scenes from the film—despite the fact that he’d never actually seen them.

Why don’t cannibals eat clowns?” I asked back. “Because they taste funny,” he said. “Did you hear the one about the cannibal who was expelled from college for buttering up his teacher?” I asked Hannibal. “Ha Ha. Good one,” he replied. “But did you hear the one about the cannibal who arrived late for dinner—and got the cold shoulder?” The dreamstage Hannibal Lecter is sort of the Henny It went on like that. Youngman of psychotic cannibals. There is a similar vividness of color and “In dreams,” he told me afterward, “we kind of internal logic that only makes sense have access to a deeper and wiser way of within the dream or the movie.

BEST BET Furb a good cause On Sunday, June 3, the seventh annual FURB ON THE GREEN takes place at McNears Beach Park in San Rafael. This outdoor festival raises money and awareness for Huntington’s disease, a genetic disease that causes slow deterioration of muscle control and psychological clarity with symptoms striking genetically predisposed adults between the ages of 35-45 years old. For Bay Area resident Chris Furbee, the disease has affected most aspects of his life. He not only lives day to day with the early symptoms of Huntington’s (since being diagnosed in 1996), but he has watched his grandfather, aunt and mother suffer from the disease. Currently working on a documentary about the struggles of living with Huntington’s disease, Furbee’s Furb on the Green serves as a fundraiser to help him finish his awareness-raising film. The free show starts at noon and features high-energy reggae-rockers Lumanation, Liquid Sun Day, Thieves of Reason, Ik Nak Fu, Jim Talley & his Jammin’ Buds and Walt the Dog. And this year, an anonymous donor has stepped up to offer matching funds for each dollar donated to help Furbee complete his film. Carpooling is encouraged, as the park charges a $10 fee per car. Food and beverages will be for sale, with all proceeds donated to the foundation. Saturday, June 3, 12-7pm at McNears Beach, 201 Cantera Way, San Rafael. $10 parking. 415/499-6387.—Dani Burlison

Week of May 31-June 6, 2012

ARIES (March 20 - April 19) The planetary pileup in your idea house activates a desire to share your thoughts. Being an Aries usually means that you want to lead the conversation. In fact, you may be so focused on your end of a discussion that you miss what the other person is saying. That would be a shame right now since the other person is most likely saying very flattering things to you. In other words, shut up and listen. TAURUS (April 20 - May 19) Your ruler (charming Venus) is suggesting that you share the wealth by playing host to your friends, neighbors and family this week. You needn’t squander your money foolishly (we all know how you hate doing that...), but you may need to actually spend some cash on food and drink. Fortunately, generous Jupiter remains in your sign until June 11. Spread the word... GEMINI (May 20 - June 20) Every year on or near your birthday the current celestial map paints a picture of your upcoming year. The fact that Venus is moving backward in Gemini is bound to have an interesting effect on your solar return chart. You are likely to view your romantic connections from a different perspective. You may also find that you are attracted by a broader variety of admirers. Some call you “fickle”—you prefer “flexible.” CANCER (June 21 - July 21) The first of June is all about tapping into your hidden creativity. By letting your mind relax, you should become inspired to bring your artistic visions to life—whether your talent is music, literary composition, fine arts or comedy. As you continue on a long journey of reinventing your professional life, take this opportunity to trust your inner guidance. They’re YOUR dreams. Why not follow them? LEO (July 22 - August 22) So many friends, so little time. While your mind can’t help worrying about your career, your spirit is hoping to connect with your pals. The best thing you can do this week is to give your social schedule a higher priority than your business schedule. Energetic Mars has been helping you make money, but now he wants you to have a good time spending it. So, book a limo and take everyone to a concert, a ball game or a winery. I’ll send you my address... VIRGO (August 23 - September 21) It’s one of those weeks when you seriously consider taking the summer off. Unless you happen to be a public school teacher, you run a ski chalet or you just sold 100,000 shares of Apple stock that you bought at $24, you probably don’t have this option. You’re just going to have to put in the minimum amount of hours at work and make the most of whatever time is left. Fortunately, your boss and all your coworkers are doing the same thing... LIBRA (September 22 - October 22) You can’t help but be curious about everything when your ruler (Venus) occupies the inquisitive sign of Gemini. Your interest comes across as sincere rather than nosy, which keeps your popularity high. Check for a weekend seminar in a topic that challenges and stretches your mind. Explore a new intellectual pursuit. Forget exercising your biceps and start exercising your brain. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) The weekend brings a chance to align your unconscious desires with your conscious goals. For instance, if your head has led you to a law degree, but your heart is yearning to be a sex therapist, seek a way to blend these together. Perhaps instead of helping people get divorced you can help them stay together. As your ruler (Pluto) heads for another breaking point with Uranus, a major change is in the stars for you sometime this year. Embrace it or resist it—just don’t try to stop it... SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 20) You are finalizing the journey of your ruler (lucky Jupiter) through the fiscally practical sign of Taurus. After June 11, saving money moves down on your priority list. If you’ve managed to accumulate a bit of wealth, find a way to safeguard some of it before you move on to spending it. Remember: Luck is the result of preparation—the more you prep, the luckier you are... CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 18) Certain aspects of having Pluto in your sign are rather overwhelming—for instance, a tendency to turn a minor upset into a crisis, or the inclination to obsess over your appearance and the impression you create. But, like any major planetary cycle, the result is a personal transformation. And soon you’ll realize that mountain you made out of that molehill has a great view. AQUARIUS (January 19 - February 17) It’s pretty easy this week to forget about working. You have a sense of playfulness that only small children can surpass. You’re not even worrying about the size of your paycheck (or the lack of one) now that non-materialistic Neptune is in charge of your money house. Will you eventually have to buckle down? Well, yes. But that happens when responsible Saturn takes over your career house in October. So, meanwhile, go build a sand castle or two... PISCES (February 18 - March 19) As far as your day-to-day money habits, you are good at making spontaneous decisions—like buying that pair of lime green Converse sneakers. However, it’s time to stop procrastinating on a pressing financial issue that is more serious. Be it a property settlement, last year’s income taxes or the inheritance you were left by a crotchety great-uncle in the Yukon, the clock is ticking. < Email Lynda Ray at cosmicclues@gmail.com or check out her website at www.lyndarayastrology.com 34 PACIFIC SUN JUNE 1– JUNE 7, 2012

Q:

I just turned 26, and I’m ready to be married. My previous two boyfriends dragged their feet and then said the blood-boiling line: “I will marry you...someday.” I met a guy online, and we initiated a relationship on the basis that he was ready for marriage. Four months after our first kiss, I broke up with him after he, too, expressed hesitation about marriage. He insisted that he loves me but is hesitating because I have a drinking problem and PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder). Once a month, I take everything that I love and tear it to shreds—as if in a werewolf state. I come to, devastated by my actions. I need structure and commitment from a loving partner for strength, and an engagement now would help me transcend my conditions. He wants me to do it alone and wants to see improvement before he commits. I want to make him realize how cruel he was in insisting in his profile that he was ready for marriage and not following through.—Unwed

A:

You’re a fierce advocate of truth in advertising—except when you’re the one engaging in the sins of omission: “I’m ready to be married. Oh, also, once a month, I’ll try to rip out your internal organs with a shrimp fork. Any takers?” Typically, when a man is ready for marriage, he’s looking to settle down with the right woman, not sprint to the altar with the first woman he meets who can fit into a size 8 long white dress. If marriage actually were a cure for alcoholism, people in AA would have florists instead of sponsors, and church basements would be packed with brides tearfully confessing to being powerless before a $10,000 wedding cake that releases a flock of white doves. You likewise don’t marry a guy because your hormones turn you into a werewolf once a month and you need somebody to bolt the exits so no sheep or cattle go missing. Per psychiatrist Dr. Emily Deans in one of my previous columns, biochemical options for dialing down turbo PMS include the 24-day or three-month birth control pill; the antidepressant bupropion; magnesium malate supplementation (500 milligrams at bedtime); and cycling from a low-carb diet to a highercarb, low-protein diet three days to a week before your period starts. At the moment, you’re married to escaping your problems. Addiction treatment specialist Dr. Frederick Woolverton writes in his very helpful book, Unhooked, that at the heart of any addiction is avoidance of suffering. Instead of feeling uncomfortable feelings and dealing with them, you hold their little heads down and drown them in a pond of cheap gin. And instead of doing the grown-up thing and working to overcome your addiction, you decide that the “power greater than yourself ” will be the groom. But, only when you don’t need a man to feel whole are you healthy enough to choose one for the right reasons. Then you see, over time (a year, at the very least), whether you and he make sense together. Marriage is a lifetime commitment, not a lifeboat to rescue you from your troubles already in progress: “Do you take this woman...to have and to hold, and to hold her hair back as she’s driving the porcelain bus? Okay then! You may now detox the bride!”

Q:

My friend is constantly dragging me to parties to be her wing woman. She’s in her late 40s but hits on hot young guys in their early 20s who never reciprocate interest. Guys her age or older approach her, but she blows them off. I’m sick of these depressing evenings and of accompanying her to the mall so she can get “hipper clothes.” Is there a kind way to tell her she needs to rethink who she’s pursuing?—Frustrated

A:

How uplifting, spending your weekends watching Generation Y getting hit on by Generation Why Are You At This Party? Of course you want to clue in your friend, “You could wear head-to-toe Forever 21, and you’d still look 49 and counting.” And you could gently suggest she expand her dating horizons to include men who are actual possibilities. But her persistence in the face of failure suggests she’s pretty attached to believing that the answer to her datelessness can be found at the mall. What you can control is how you spend your time. Extending yourself to make a friend happy is nice; subjecting yourself to regular misery is too nice and leads to bubbling resentment. The next time she tries to drag you along, tell her you’re party-weary and tired of the mall...but how about lunch or a hike? Granted, out on the trail, you could still witness the uncomfortable sight of a cougar stalking its prey—but not by changing out of its mom jeans. < © Amy Alkon, all rights reserved. www.advicegoddess.com.
