››LETTERS Quicker than our commute from Rowland to downtown San Rafael Thank you so much for the ﬁne article on the Golden Gate Ferries and the new Wave shuttle connection. Last week, my wife and I caught the ﬁrst Wave, which got us to Larkspur Landing in time for the sunrise ferry to SF. At the SF Ferry Building we connected with the Amtrak system. Carried on by some wonderful trains, we ended up in Arizona. After a ﬁne week in the Grand Canyon, we did everything in reverse, catching the 8pm sunset ferry back to Larkspur. We found that the ferry can indeed be the start of many happy, low-carbon trips! Paul da Silva, Larkspur
“Named national Best of Home Care Winner!” It starts with our caregivers. We carefully screen nearly 25 applicants for each caregiver we hire. Only the best are good enough for Home Care Assistance! We follow this with extensive training. Finally we invite geriatric experts to meet with our caregivers so that they are up-to-date with the newest ideas about senior care. Hourly and Live-In Care. Our caregiving services focus on two basic types of care: hourly and live-in. The service you choose is determined by your particular needs. Hourly caregiving works well for many families. In this situation we provide trained caregivers on an hourly basis. Here the caregiver focuses all her attention exclusively on the senior. Live-in care differs from hourly care in that we provide personal aides on a daily basis. Live-in caregivers are often the best choice for those seniors who need the companionship of another person, but who do not have intense “all the time” personal needs. At Home Care Assistance we mean it when we talk about providing the best in senior care–whether it is on an hourly basis or a live-in basis.
Meet Francie. Francie Bedinger is the Home Care Assistance Kentfield client care manager and works directly with clients and their families throughout Marin County. With a master’s in gerontology, Francie is an expert in health and wellness for older adults and works hard to ensure her clients are happy and healthy at all times.

That frosty smug sensation! Reluctant props to the American Sugar, er ... Beverage Association, for managing to get the word “holistic” into their defensive response letter to the Sun [“We’d Like to Buy the World a Coke,” May 30]. Yes, indeed, the holistic approach to fatness. Jerry Slick, Mill Valley
But then how will we know who’s ‘fighting for local families’? In the run-up to the election last Tuesday, I received 32 mailers and door hangers: eight from Damon Connolly, six from Marc Levine (plus ﬁve from organizations supporting him), four from Mike McGuire (plus one from supporters), four from Susan Adams, and one each from Diana Conti, COPS, the California Democratic Party and the Interna-
tional Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. Raise your hand if you read any of these repetitive puff pieces. What if all the local candidates in our next election agreed to limit themselves to a single mailing which featured the wife and kids, a golden Marin hillside and a website where relevant issues could be thoroughly addressed? The money saved could be donated to the Marin Food Bank. Just sayin’. Stanton Klose, San Rafael
We prefer to think the ‘New York Times’ is not the ‘Pacific Sun’ ... We think of the Paciﬁc Sun as our quirky neighborhood friend we love to get together with each week. It’s not The New York Times. So for the mighty American Beverage Council to take notice and actually submit a written response (spin) speaks volumes. You obviously hit a very sensitive nerve. As the ABC stated, Sugar-Sweetened Beverage (SSB) consumption has decreased dramatically over the past three to four decades as the majority became more educated and moved toward healthier alternatives. The nasty, little truth the ABC neglected to mention is that the obese are the largest remaining consumer base of SSBs today. Quoting the Harvard School of Public Health Newsletter, Winter 2013: “One of the most direct effects of SSBs on the body is weight gain. Sugar-sweetened beverages can add weight because the liquid calories are not ﬁlling, and people do not reduce their food intake at subsequent meals.” Further quoting the newsletter: “[A recent
study] among initially healthy men and women ... showed that greater consumption of SSBs was associated with increased genetic susceptibility to an elevated Body Mass Index (BMI) and increased obesity risk. Individuals who consumed at least one serving of SSBs per day had genetic effects on BMI and obesity risk that were approximately twice as large as those who consumed less than one serving per month. This data provides further evidence of a causal link between SSBs and weight gain.”
let’s focus on the two biggies. The biggies are linchpin issues. If they are true, it means so much more than is first evident, because they tie in with so many other issues. He defends public water fluoridation and makes fun of those who see it as some sort of sinister conspiracy. Not addressing the science and belittling those who point out the facts is a well-established strategy, to confuse the issue. The fluoride added to Marin’s water supply is not pharmaceutical grade. It is hydofluorosilicic acid, a toxic byproduct of the phosphate fertilizer industries, and has been tied to numerous health issues, including: thyroid failure, arthritis, bone cancers, kidney disease and lower IQs in children. Sorry, the science is dead. Cold. Solid. But don’t take my word on this. Go to YouTube, type in “fluoride, cease and desist”—a seven-part series. I recommend this to anyone who wishes to become an expert on the fluoridation issue in an evening. The last biggie is 9/11. I suggest another YouTube: “David Icke 9/11” An almost twohour speech on many of the details of this event that the mainstream news seems to have overlooked. Look at the evidence, and decide for yourself if it raises valid points, or not. Mr. Heilig’s odd rant at valid and invalid conspiracies/theories makes me wonder what his motivation is. Linking the fluoride issue to faking the moon landing seems a psychological ploy to manipulate the reader, and discourage people from researching these topics. Attacking the messenger and denial
Larry Minikes, San Rafael
You better smile when you say my pineal gland is toxified, buster ...
I just read Steve Heilig’s letter concerning “conspiracies” and other “mythology” [Phantom Marin Hypotheses,” June 6]. Wow. I’m always impressed when someone shows off his ignorance in a public forum. He seems to be confusing “conspiracy theories” with real “conspiracies.” He’s lumped them all together, some absurd, some not, with the intention of discrediting all of them. Sorry, but it ain’t gonna wash. But let’s get a bit specific. Some of the theories, such as “we never went to the moon,” are absurd. First of all, it would have been harder to fake it than to actually do it. Also the Russians and the Chinese would have never let us get away with faking this. As for the NSA and surveillance? This one is true, by the way. Odd that he would even put this one in. I’m sure I could chip away at some of his other issues, but
are normal reactions to hearing disturbing information. Evidence that our own local water department is dousing our children/ community with toxic waste is a tough one to swallow. Ignoring or belittling data does not make it go away. Instead of looking outside the box, we need to get rid of the box entirely, and just look at evidence. This is the only way to perceive reality, not by making fun of the issues and those who seek the truth. A helpful hint: Want to see reality more clearly? Stop drinking fluoridated water. After a while, your pineal gland will detoxify, and you will see much more clearly.

Reunited and it feels so good A family of northern spotted owls reunites, thanks to WildCare by N ik k i Silve r ste in
the health of the baby and the stability of the parents and sibling, Melanie Piazza, director of animal care at WildCare, determined that the owlet was an excellent candidate for reunification with his family. Time was of the essence, as baby birds develop quickly and even a short time away from the mother and father could be detrimental to development. Several local agencies were contacted to assist and the reunion was scheduled for later in the day. On the afternoon of May 29, after feeding the bird a meal of frozen mouse strips, he was placed in a blue box with a handle, put in a car and driven to the Mill Valley site where he was found. Staff and volunteers from WildCare, Point Blue Conservation Science, Golden Gate Raptor Observatory and the Hungry Owl Project gathered at 5pm to place the owlet back in the tree from which he fell. The homeowners greeted the group with an unfortunate update. The remains of a deceased northern spotted owl were discovered a stone’s throw from the nest. The other adult and fledgling hadn’t been seen since early in the day. The dead bird put a damper on the planned reunification. Renée Cormier, avian ecologist from Point Blue Conservation Science, examined the remains 8> and verified that it was a northern
northern spotted owl baby caused quite a commotion two weeks ago outside a secluded Mill Valley residence as a team of wildlife experts attempted to return him to his parents and sibling. The unpredictable process of reuniting a baby bird with his family is often an emotional roller coaster for rescuers; however, when the animals are listed as threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act, the stakes become a bit higher. The plight of the one-pound owlet began when homeowners found him at the base of a redwood tree next to their house and sought the help of WildCare, a wildlife rehabilitation center. The baby became patient number 736 at WildCare’s San Rafael facility and was observed for 24 hours. The results of blood tests, x-rays and a thorough physical examination revealed that he was uninjured and healthy. It appeared that he had tumbled from his nest or lost his footing on a branch, and though unable to fly, he had parachuted down with a soft landing. The Mill Valley homeowners reported that over the last few weeks they had frequently observed two northern spotted owls attending dutifully to two babies in a nest high up in the tree. The other three birds were still on site. Considering

Marin Audubon Society signs deal to buy and restore Corte Madera parcel It may be nesting season now for the endangered California clapper rails of Marin County, but when they emerge from their mating and breeding activities, there will be good news to share: one of the places they call home—a marsh along the Corte Madera bayfront—may soon share a border with protected land. The 5.2-acre private property, which is currently zoned as office space and has been considered for numerous development projects (including a soccer field), is part of a purchase contract signed by the Marin Audubon Society. With the hope of restoring what was once a marsh, leveling the land and protecting wildlife habitat, the society aims to raise the $1.035 million needed to buy the land, over the next eight months. Located behind the Cost Plus Plaza shopping center at the end of Industrial Way, the property is owned by Belvedere resident Frank Greene and the Ecumenical Association for Housing. If purchased, the land would be donated to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife for protection as part of the approximately 300-acre Corte Madera Ecological Reserve, after being restored to tidal marsh by the Audubon Society. “It’s important,” Marin Audubon Society President Barbara Salzman says of protecting the area, “because it has a consistent and high population of endangered species and it’s easily restorable.” The land—which the society has set its sights on for the last 25 years— has finally become available. “They weren’t willing to sell it to us until recently,” Salzman says of the property owners. The land is part of a long history of development in Corte Madera. In the early 80s, the town approved a proposal to build on it, and it was filled in preparation for development. “And then a moratorium on development came along,” Salzman says. “I think things changed ... we decided that it wasn’t a good thing to be developing this property.” Surrounded on three sides by the Corte Madera Ecological Reserve’s tidal marsh, the land currently cannot function as a marsh itself, due to the fact that the filling left it several feet higher than the adjacent marsh. Salzman says that in addition to this poor functionality and thus, poor wildlife habitat, it’s being damaged by people who walk across it, and 8> by concrete and debris that have been dumped there. The potential purchase is part of a partnership between the Marin Audubon Society and Marin Baylands Advocates, called Campaign for Marin Baylands. The society hopes to secure the needed funds through federal grants, foundation grants and private donations. Salzman isn’t too worried about this. “We’ve been successful in our acquisitions,” she says. “All of the properties we’ve been interested in have been acquired by us or by some other entity.” To donate to the acquisition through the Marin Audubon Society, visit www.marinaudubon.org/donations.php. Donations are also accepted through the Marin Community Foundation at www.marincf.org/giving (be sure to include “Marin Baylands Fund” on donation form).—Molly Oleson Marin keeps it fresh with record set in agricultural production Marin and its estimated 33,000 head of cattle have a lot to be proud of this week. A recent report released by the Marin County Department of Agriculture, Weights and Measures logged a record gross value of agricultural production in Marin this year—up 4.9 percent in 2013 from the previous record set in 2012. From 2007-09, agricultural production in Marin faced a downward trend. But in 2011, the value peaked at $56 million of gross value, and again in 2011 at $70 million. Milk production remains at the forefront with the highest percent jump in Marin, closely followed by poultry (including eggs) with 89.9 percent and a 74.4 percent jump in fruit and vegetable production, according to a county press release. Of the $84.3 million in total gross sales in 2013, livestock and livestock products accounted for $63.1 million. Field crops represented $9.9 million, aquaculture was $5.5 million and fruit, grape and vegetable crops were $5.3 million. Stacy Carlsen, an agricultural commissioner for the Marin County Department of Agriculture, Weights and Measures, said the percentage increases can be largely attributed to a new online reporting system implemented in April 2013 by the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA). The updated system allows for more complete data to be extracted from producers. In the past, surveys were filled out online on a volunteer basis— yielding results as low as 30 percent. “My appreciation goes to the many growers, producers, individuals and organizations for their cooperation in providing the information necessary for this report,” Carlsen said. A county press release attributes a large portion of the fiscal jump to increased egg production. Egg production boomed in 2013, mostly from chickens raised on pasture, according to the new statistics. Officials add that Marin’s registration numbers for egg operations and producers may have doubled in 2013 since the state now requires any person engaged in business as an egg producer or handler to be registered. The report, which was shown to and accepted by the Board of Supes on June 3, also includes information about organic farming, pest detection and exclusion, biological pest control, livestock protection from predators, invasive weed management and sudden oak death.—Stephanie Powell 9>

Our favorite radio host Michael Krasny kvetched about it on the air last week. We recently wrote that we were late for a date with a handsome guy because of that light. Caltrans and Marin County engineers have adjusted the timing, but it needs an overhaul. As traffic flow continues to be disrupted, tempers have erupted.

Though the pooch had pulled this Houdini act before and reappeared soon enough, this time she wasn’t so lucky. Bobby got stuck. As she barked in distress, Marin County firemen from the Woodacre Fire Station arrived on the scene. They dug up the hillside, dodged a gas line and sawed carefully into the culvert. After they removed a couple of sections of the tunnel, out popped the pup. “These firemen are true heroes,” said Beth Huning, a neighbor who witnessed the dog’s liberation. “Bobby was trapped in the hillside and would never have been able to get out without them rescuing her.”

One of the northern spotted owls flew closer during the reunion to keep an eye on the team.
< 6 Reunited and it feels so good spotted owl. Concern grew regarding the whereabouts and safety of the rest of the family. After a brief discussion, the team decided to have volunteer arborist Jim Cairnes of The Small World Tree Company inspect the redwood where the owls had nested. Cairnes donned his safety gear, collected his ropes and began to climb the tree, which was situated on a steep slope next to the house. Suddenly, with a flurry of wings and hoots, two adult northern spotted owls swooped past him and settled into trees nearby. The team was elated. The parents were alive and well. Cormier, who monitors northern spotted owls in Marin, surmised that the deceased owl was an interloper—likely a young bird trying to find a mate or home. Although she was unsure of the cause of death, it would not impact the attempt to return the baby to his mother and father. With the adults stressed by the arborist’s presence in the tree, the team moved quickly to the next step. Piazza retrieved the cardboard box, which temporarily housed the baby, from her car. Huddled next to the garage of the house, away from the view of the parent owls, she gently removed him and wrapped his head and body in a blanket. As he squirmed in protest, Cormier struggled to place a band on each of his legs. Click, click, click. The one-pound baby bird emitted loud clicking noises intended to scare the humans who poked and prodded him. The parents responded to his sounds and flew into the trees above him and called out. The owlet began to nibble on Piazza’s stomach, which provided Cormier with the opportunity to finish fitting him with a federal band that contains
an identification number and a unique orange and white band that identifies him as a 2014 juvenile northern spotted owl. Cormier, who holds a federal bird banding and marking permit, noted for the record that the banding concluded at 5:48pm. The baby was put back in the box and rushed to the redwood inhabited by Cairnes, who had thrown a rope over a high, sturdy branch. The handle of the box was tied to one end of the rope and Cairnes hoisted the box up by pulling on the rope’s opposite end. In this position many times before, Cairnes kept a watchful eye for the parents. Years ago, he had been forcefully hit by a northern spotted owl trying to protect her nest. This time, the return of the owlet to the tree was uneventful. He placed him on a branch near the trunk and climbed down. The relief felt by the wildlife advocates was palpable, but short-lived. Within a minute of Cairnes’ descent, the baby hopped to the outermost, weakest end of the branch. He promptly fell, caught himself and hung from the limb upside down like a bat. The group speculated that this may have been how the baby ended up at the base of the tree the day before. Should Cairnes go back up the tree and move the bird back to safety? The experts concurred that they would stop all activity and observe. It was time for nature to take its course without human intervention. Still upside down, the bird fell again. He landed on a branch below and righted himself, though he remained in a precarious spot on a skinny limb. With tiny cries, he called out for his mother. She answered his call and flew to the crotch of a nearby tree where she retrieved a stashed dead woodrat, a dietary staple for northern
Does this baby bird need help? Usually baby birds found on the ground are being watched by their parents and are not in danger, although there are situations where human intervention is required. A baby without feathers must be returned to the nest immediately. If the nest can’t be found, bring the bird to your nearest wildlife rehabilitation facility. In Marin, that’s WildCare in San Rafael. A baby bird with feathers probably doesn’t need assistance, unless it has truly been abandoned. To determine whether the parents are nearby, watch the baby closely, staying about 50 feet away. It may take up to 90 minutes for the parents to return and they could fly in and out quickly. If the parents don’t return, contact WildCare. If you observe any of the following symptoms, bring the bird to WildCare immediately: n Falling over on its side n Inability to stand n Inability to flutter wings n Tweaked or drooping wing(s) n Weakness or shivering n Fluffed up feathers n Eyes closed n Bleeding n Insects on the baby bird WildCare is located at 76 Albert Park Lane in San Rafael. For more information, call their 24-hour wildlife hotline at 415456-7283.
< 6 Newsgrams Call to duty ... or telephone scam? For those who think a call for jury duty is the last thing they need—think again. Even that sometimes-marginal inconvenience is preferable to receiving a call informing you that you missed reporting for jury duty and must pay a hefty fee to avoid arrest. And this holds especially true when that claim is bogus, coming from a caller hoping to jilt you out of thousands of dollars. Over the past few weeks, the Marin County Sheriff’s Office has received multiple reports from county residents who have received unsolicited telephone calls from a subject identifying himself as a Sheriff’s Office employee, telling them that they had recently failed to report for jury duty and a warrant had been issued for their arrest. The caller explained that they could pay a bail or fee to avoid incarceration and, according to one person’s account to the Sheriff, that amount was $2,000. In response to the scam, the Sheriff’s Office is issuing reminders this week that it would never call anyone to inform them they failed to report for jury duty and demand payment for bail. “These kinds of unsolicited fraud attempts are becoming more and more common,” Sheriff’s Office officials said in a press statement, “often targeting older residents who might be less likely to question the authenticity of the claims being made.” Generally, all jury duty communication between the court and the public happens through the mail. Jury duty scams have been around for years, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. But they’re making a comeback. The “classic” scenario goes something like this: A resident gets a call, and the voice identifies himself as an officer of the court. He says the resident failed to report for jury duty and that a judge has issued a warrant for their arrest. The startled resident explains that they never received a call to jury duty. The caller offers to clear up the misunderstanding, but says he’ll first need to verify some information—birth date, social security number and, in some cases, a credit card number. According to FBI reports, the scam works on this assumption: Met with unexpected trouble with the law, victims are caught off guard and may be willing to hand over personal information to settle the situation. “They get you scared first,” a Minneapolis field agent says in a federal report on the jury duty scam titled, “The Verdict: Hang Up.” “They get people saying, ‘Oh my gosh! I’m not a criminal. What’s going on?’” That’s when the scammer dangles a solution—a fine, payable by credit card, that will clear up the problem. With certain forms of personal information, such as credit card numbers or social security numbers, scammers can get access to victims’ bank accounts, and more. “It seems like a very simple scam,” the agent adds. “The trick is putting people on the defensive, then reeling them back in with the promise of a clean slate. “It’s kind of ingenious. It’s social engineering.” To report suspected telephone scams, call the Sheriff’s Office at 473-7233.—Jason Walsh
maintaining our native species,” Bown says. “Some say that people are part of the ecology. Fine. But, we are responsible for fixing what we messed up.” The California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco is receiving the specimens of the barred owls killed in the study. Steven Bedard, spokesperson for the Academy, says that the experiment presents a fascinating dilemma. “In general, the public has not had much difficulty getting rid of invasive species, but when it’s as adorable as a barred owl, it’s more difficult.” No matter who wins the lawsuit, it will be years before we learn which owl comes out on top. The experiment is the first step in determining the magnitude of the threat posed by the barred owl against the northern spotted owl. Then the question becomes, what will our ethics allow us to do next? Y E-mail: email@example.com
spotted owls. With the rat in her beak, she continued to the redwood where her owlet waited, but landed on the middle of a branch on the other side of the trunk. The mother owl hooted and hooted. In a painstaking manner, the baby took small steps toward her. The two owls called to one another continuously as the little one crept closer and closer. Finally, he arrived at the trunk and hopped around it to the branch where his mother stood. Within a few more minutes, mother and baby were side by side. She ripped pieces off the rat and gently fed them to her offspring. Whispers of amazement circulated among the handful of onlookers. With only 7,000 to 10,000 northern spotted owls left in existence, and Marin being the southernmost region of their habitat, it was rare to witness the behavior. “This is why it’s so important to reunite the family,” said Anne Ardillo, raptor expert at the Hungry Owl Project and WildCare. “We could never teach the baby how to do this.” Cormier said that she had circled the house and observed the male in a tree and heard the cries of the other owlet. With the mission completed, the wildlife protectors retreated and left the family to carry on. In the days following the rescue and reunification, the homeowners reported that the four owls remain together. The parents continue to feed the babies, who will soon be ready to fend for themselves. Success was achieved for this parliament of owls, but why is the northern spotted owl population dwindling every year? Two factors are believed to be responsible. Over the last several decades, logging decimated their natural habitat of oldgrowth forests in the Pacific Northwest. In addition, climate change likely allowed the barred owl, which is native to the Eastern United States, to expand westward across the Great Plains into the northern spotted owls’ habitat. Scientists deem the northern spotted owl a native of the Pacific Northwest and the barred owl invasive, although the species are closely related. Unfortunately, the northern spotted owl numbers decrease wherever the barred owl population increases. To the dismay of many animal rights advocates, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service is currently conducting an experiment in which they are killing up to 3,600 barred owls. Two of the four test areas are located in Northern California, the Green Diamond forest, privately owned by a logging company, and the Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation. Friends of Animals, a nonprofit animal rights organization, has filed a lawsuit against the federal government to try to stop the study. “All owls deserve respect and we shouldn’t play God,” said Jennifer Barnes, an attorney for Friends of Animals. Robin Bown, a biologist for the United States Fish and Wildlife Service vehemently disagrees. “We’re responsible for

The breaking point Should Marinites prepare for a new wave of conservatism?
omething’s happening here. Voters in the June 3 election rejected a bid by Supervisor Susan Adams, a strong supporter of affordable housing and demographic diversity, to continue on the board. The rejection is symbolic of an undeniable shift in the psyche of the county. Supervisor Judy Arnold’s whisker-thin margin of victory seems to be holding, but it’s still a symbol that Marin politics have entered a new era, and voters are ready to reject the way the county has done business and met its social responsibilities. It’s a wave that’s been building for decades. This year, it swept the county. How the election will affect the county’s other three supervisors is a question that lies at the heart of the issue: Who are we and what do we want to be? It’s reasonable to assume that supervisors Steve Kinsey, Kate Sears and Katie Rice could be looking at an equally restive electorate if the three supervisors choose to run for re-election. The results of the June 3 election—which are not yet final—also could have repercussions on candidates running for city and town councils across the county. Registrar of Voters Elaine Ginnold says the county will update the numbers tomorrow, June 13. As of the beginning of the week, the betting says Arnold will hold her

galvanized an ascendant conservative movement in the county. As in past campaigns, mailers arrived at homes and tried to persuade voters that one candidate or the other was in the pocket of developers. The mud got slung on both sides in District 1. A mailer attacking Connolly said that he was in the pocket of developers. That’s an accusation that was thrown at Adams for years as she worked to promote affordable housing, most recently in Marinwood. One of the issues raised by opponents in debates about affordable housing—in Marinwood and in the rest of the county— centers on the argument that affordable housing developments (and by intimation, the people who live in them) don’t contribute their fair share of tax revenue. A mailer in the June 3 election that attacked Adams said that promoting affordable housing in District 1 would jeopardize public schools. Opponents say residents would be forced to pay for the costs of upgrading schools to accommodate more children in new affordable developments. That kind of attack on diversity—and an abdication of social responsibility—was part of the wave that swept over the county on June 3. In District 5, Shroyer ran on shaking up an incumbency on the board that she said

had led to profligate spending and a failure to represent constituents. That charge also echoed in District 1. An irony not mentioned in the discussion about the outcome of the election is how voters were saying that they rejected incumbents who were leading the county in the wrong directions. Yet they were the same voters who said they wanted to preserve all that they love about the county. Those things that they said they love had been part of the incumbents’ agenda for years. Rejecting incumbents seems to be a visceral reaction in politics these days. The mailer in District 1 that accused Adams of “throwing children under the bus” by promoting low-income housing and attracting developments—and new residents—who wouldn’t pay their fair share of school taxes was reminiscent of hit pieces in past Marin campaigns. Adams pointed out that in areas where affordable developments had been added to the county’s housing stock, no children were thrown under any buses and no extreme tax burdens had been implemented on Marin residents. Given the results of the election, the response may have met deaf ears, especially given the vociferous opposition to incumbency and to any hint of a regional affordable housing initiative. “This was a wave election,” says Richard Rubin. The Strawberry resident is the principal at Richard A. Rubin Associates, a public affairs management firm. In addition to teaching courses in politics at the University of San Francisco, Rubin has been a longtime observer of the political landscape in Marin. He knows something about attack mailers. In 2004, he ran for a seat on the Marin Municipal Water District and was the target of a last-minute mailer that accused him of making his living “as a high-paid mouthpiece for the biggest corporations” and being dedicated to destroying the environment. The unfair mailer was sent so late that Rubin could not respond. Water District Director Larry Russell, who was running against Rubin, was tied to the mailer and received a chastising from the Fair Political Practices Commision. “The electorate is very volatile this time around,” Rubin says, “and there is a lot of discontent that was expressing itself. And the
people the discontent was aimed at were the incumbents. I think that was the price that was paid.” County politicians know how to read the tea leaves. The outcome of the June 3 election could have a profound effect on the future governance of a county. “This could cause them to be a lot more restrained in the way they react to issues,” Rubin says. “Survival is the number one word for politicians.” At stake is whether the county’s politicians, at the county and city levels, will look at the election outcome and turn off of a road to provide housing and promote diversity. “If they are going to take positions that are out front on issues that are controversial, this election will say to them to be very careful,” Rubin says. The outcome of the June 3 election could demoralize housing advocates who can face the conservative wave. Or not. The outcome also could galvanize a contingent of Marin residents who have refrained from taking an active role in the debates about housing, regional goals, the environment, water supply, climate change and sea-level rise—leaving the playing field to the new conservatives. The issues the county and its cities face are countywide. Rubin thinks it may be time to consider switching to an at-large system in which supervisors represent more than one single district. “No one is providing a global outlook for our problems,” he says. In district-based systems, it’s natural for politicians to represent a narrow constituency, to do what’s best for a single district or town or part of a town. But problems like sea-level rise, climate change and water supply affect the entire county and demand cross-border solutions that transcend the parochial. The housing issue is an example of the parochial versus the global paradigm. Voters in District 1 said loud and clear that they didn’t think the district should assume the responsibility of providing housing to the extent that politicians were envisioning. But lost in that argument is the fact that for decades, District 1 has been relatively light on the housing front, given its geography along the Highway 101 corridor. In crafting opposition to the incumbents—especially opposition to Adams—the new conservatives challenged, and continue to challenge, the county’s planning 13>

bible. When first crafted, the countywide plan envisioned protecting hillsides and open space by concentrating development along what it called city-centered corridors, principally along Highway 101 and its main arteries. That would allow the county to protect its open space from development. But now the new conservatives want to break faith with that planning bible. Now they say increasing development along the corridors to accommodate needed housing is unacceptable. Fear-based arguments, about things like destroyed schools and a perception that affordable housing and the people who live in it bring crime, replaced rational argument. The fear-based arguments spilled over into political campaign rhetoric. At its most benign, the opposition to affordable housing posited that the county could meet state housing mandates by adding second units and other similar strategies rather than building new structures. But by the numbers, the statistics belie the argument. Yet voters, the new conservatives, seem ready to buy into the faulty construct. The real debate, about real needs and real numbers, went unspoken for the most part in the recent election. Not an unusual circumstance. But Marin deserves better. Daniel Patrick Moynihan said it best: “You
are entitled to your opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts.” The election sidestepped the global. The new conservatives in Marin are taking advantage of that hesitance and are treading on the fear. “We know there are constraints on population simply because there is a shortage of land,” Rubin says. “Let’s decide within those areas of land what is developable. Let’s do it in a rational way to accommodate the needs we all recognize, so we can make it possible for others besides those currently living here to also have a place.” That’s the kind of construct within which the county could have a rational conversation about housing and equity. “But that’s not how the conversation goes now,” Rubin says. “Now it begins by saying ‘I have mine, so let’s see how I can preserve it, and oh yeah, we can also add a few people.’” And as for the argument that adding affordable housing puts an unfair tax burden on current residents, Rubin says, “From a strictly econometric standpoint, we shouldn’t build affordable housing anywhere.” But it’s a social responsibility—part of the price of admission in a community. The new conservatives don’t want to pay the price. The election results reflected that reluctance. Y

In the evening the store (complete with a wood-burning oven) transforms into a small dining room that seats up to 12 people at a large communal table. Owner/chef John Gilbert creates and prepares special seven-course menus using local, seasonal ingredients—all cooked in the wood-burning oven.

Swim skirts and tees While swim skirts have been mostly worn by retirees and swim tees by children, this year pool moms have assimilated these pieces into their swimwear repertoire. And it’s really no wonder. Swim skirts can create a retro poolside look while discreetly hiding full hips and rump. Tees provide skin protection while elongating and disguising a full midsection. Sarongs and beach pants Wet bodies need easy-on cover-ups. This is why women prefer the ease of sarongs and beach pants at the pool. This summer, both come in a multitude of colors, fabrics and designs to match your swimwear. If these cover-up suggestions won’t skirt your pool’s skin parade, you can always just dive in.

he early summer heat beats down on me like an impeding sense of doom. In my world, summertime means pool time and this year I am feeling skinny-fat. I admit my condition (or lack thereof) is a result of sheer laziness. I delayed my summertime prep workout until the word “prep” no longer made any sense as a descriptive. Now I am stuck with an untoned body and two little children who beg me daily to visit the Sleepy Hollow pool. While I have little intention to hit the gym, nor little choice in avoiding the pool, this summer I have to get big-time creative to skirt my local pool’s skin parade. Luckily for me there has been a swim cover-up explosion. This season local stores are featuring fabulous cover-up options that can be worn in and around the pool, serving as sun and ego protection.

The Sun Shines Bright on
Neal Schon first teamed up and jammed with Santana as a teenager.
ears ago, sitting with guitarist Carlos Santana in the office of his thenmanager, the rock impresario Bill Graham, I mentioned that the band’s 1972 album Caravanserai was one of my favorite albums and said how impressed I was by the tight, driving performances. Santana leaned forward in a manner that cut through his usually cool, detached demeanor and said that during the recording sessions in the spring of that year the band members were barely speaking to each other. In fact, they seldom worked in the recording studio together, choosing for the most part to lay down individual parts before moving on so the next musician could then record his part. The album’s centerpiece, “All the Love in the Universe,” is a beautiful sentiment and worthy of aspiration, but it ultimately failed to inspire a band ripped apart by artistic and personal differences. It was the last recording with Santana guitarist Neal Schon and keyboardist Gregg Rolie. Fast forward to 2014. Artisan News reports that the Santana band will reunite later this year on an as-yetunnamed recording project. In a video interview, Santana said that fellow Marinite Schon had pursued him “like a guided missile for about a year and a half. Everywhere I went he was there: ‘Carlos, everything tells me that I need to do this thing with you.’ I’m like, ‘What?’”
Santana eventually agreed on the hook up on the condition that Santana band members Gregg Rolie, Michael Shrieve and Michael Carabello could come along for the ride. “Let’s get the original Santana band who did the first three albums, and call it Santana IV,” Santana said. No word yet on what the reunion project is going to sound like. But Santana reported that he’s been listening to lots of world music for inspiration. “I compiled my own playlist out of about 200 African CDs, and I go, ‘Listen to this.’ I call it Filthy McNasty swamp music,” Artisan News reported. The reunion project is expected to occur in the fall after the completion of Santana’s and Journey’s respective summer tours. Santana discovered the then-17-year-old Schon, who first recorded with his mentor on 1971’s Santana III. After recording Caravanserai, just his second session with Santana, Schon left the band to co-found Journey with Rolie. Speaking of Journey, on May 26, former Journey singer Steve Perry hit the stage for his first concert date in almost 20 years. The occasion? Perry joined the Eels at a 1,000seat St. Paul, Minn., theater to perform that band’s anthem “It’s a Motherf---er.” Perry went on to sing a pair of Journey hits: “Open Arms” and “Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeezin.’” According to radio.com, Perry’s voice was in fine form. He last performed with Journey in 1991
and stopped touring as a solo act four years later. Perry reportedly has been dealing with health issues, including a pair of 2013 melanoma surgeries and an earlier hip replacement operation. In 2007, Schon discovered current Journey singer Arnel Pineda singing Journey covers on YouTube videos—at the time, Pineda was a member of a cover band called the Zoo. The following year, Journey’s album Revelation, with Pineda as the frontman, reached No. 5 on the Billboard charts. Pineda was the subject of a 2012 documentary, Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey. But it hasn’t been all smooth sailing: Pineda, a Filipino national, reportedly has been the subject of racist backlash from some Journey fans. And last week, a syndicated news report noted that both Schon and Perry were open to a possible reunion. Perry told reporter Cindy Elavsky: “The older I get, the more I do realize how important what we had all together and how it worked [was]. ... [lifting] each other to this place that you can’t get to alone. I think that’s probably the biggest chemistry thing I recognize now.” Schon responded with a Facebook post: “I hope we can reach out to each other and connect once again. We had amazing chemistry together. I love him with all the love and admiration you could ever have. Steve, let’s talk soon.” Hey, don’t stop believin’. Y Believe it or not with Greg at email@example.com.

Cast no shadow The Jack Ryan series of Tom Clancy adaptations has always aimed for the middle, and while that might not get the films many critical puffs, one still imagines that, say, the Cahiers du Cinema of the 1950s would approve. Ambitious to rise above the average spy thriller without resorting to Bondism or high seriousness, these five pics have delivered some of the most memorable moments of the last two decades—I’m Even undercover CIA agents trust in the age-old tradition of a solid handshake. thinking of three shockers in particular—while adroitly dodging any 10-best lists. JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT is no exception, say critics, but I’d argue that this one is a breakaway to the upside, thanks to the superlative direction of Kenneth Branagh (who co-stars), a script that’s smart about Russia and the romanticism driving the spy trade and excellent performances by Chris Pine and Keira Knightley. This first installment to be untethered to a Clancy novel stars Pine as the American LSE student whose life is halted watching TV one September afternoon. Service in Afghanistan, heroism and injury follow, leaving him sidelined—which is just the sort of jacket CIA recruiter Harper (Kevin Costner) could want. A dual-track career on Wall Street ensues at just the moment some irregular and glacier-sized currency movements are detected in Russia.—Richard Gould

What’s Your sign? WEEK OF JunE 13 - JunE 19, 2014
BY LEOnA MOOn
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) It’s time for a nap, Aries! All of that back-andforth with your boss or an authority figure left you exhausted and in need of a little replenishment. Stand your ground on June 13, but choose your fighting words wisely. It will all perk up on June 18 when you receive good news about your salary. Turn that frown upside down! TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) Venus, your ruler, is in Taurus and wants you to know it, Taurus! The planets have aligned and allowed for a mini getaway on June 18. Pack your bags and a swimsuit—the weather is sure to please. You’ll need to stay grounded on your retreat, so ditch your cell phone at home and opt for a mud bath. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) You’re about to get hit with a surprise proposal on June 14, Gemini! Your partner may not, er, be reading the signs correctly, which may leave you feeling a little more caught off guard than surprised. Do your best to handle the situation with poise. There’s no need for dramatics; a simple “thank you” and “I’m feeling bloated, can we talk about this later?” might just save the day. CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Party at your house, Cancer! Your social calendar is filling up fast and June 19 is no exception. Venus and Jupiter are handing out invitations with your address to anyone and everyone. Spruce up your digs with a little Flip This House action. Bring out your Ralph Lauren antler candle holder set—it’s the perfect conversation-starter for a potential flame. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22) You’ll be humming along to “Just the Two of Us” all day on June 18, Leo. But don’t set the dinner table and light candles just yet—your partner is not here to romance you. It’s time to collaborate! Venus and Jupiter are ready to help you get your creative juices flowing, so pick your partner and pick wisely—this project is here to stay until fruition. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22) Roll out the red carpet, Virgo! You’re hitting the town. A charity event for a local nonprofit is calling your name and requiring your presence. Dust off your dress shoes and make time for pampering; all eyes will be on you. If your event includes a silent auction, be careful how high you bid—unless you are 100 percent certain that the China set you spot needs to come home with you—because you’re likely to win big. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22) Drinks on you, Libra! Venus is parked in your house of income and here to help negotiate perks at work. Has that cavity been bothering you? Now’s the time to ask for dental insurance! Your employer (and the stars) are in a favorable position to take care of your needs. Don’t be shy and milk this planetary alignment for all it’s worth! SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21) Bullies beware, Scorpio! Two planets are eager to lock your fists with an enemy’s face. Practice your “I” statements and deep breaths on June 17. It’s likely a friend or co-worker comes out of left field with some not-so-friendly criticism. Take it with a grain of salt and don’t get nasty. There’s no need to stoop down to his or her level. Two angry birds are not better than one. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) Get yourself to the nearest dive bar, Sagittarius! It’s time to trust in love again! Sure, rejection is hard. No one likes to hear that their hair looks like a Supercut special and their makeup rivals the offspring of Cleopatra meets raccoon, but you’ve got to dig deep for your confidence and hit the streets. June 14 is the day to give true love another chance. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19) After some fights that made you reconsider your living and loving situation last week, you’re ready for some sweet nothings in your ear, Capricorn. A tender night for two is on the menu. After a week that had you considering packing up and auditioning for Naked and Afraid, you’re ready to reconcile on June 15. Leave tiffs at the door and try to do something sweet for your sweetie. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18) Why didn’t Craigslist specify a level of annoyingness before you signed the lease, Aquarius? It’s all right—just remember to breathe, my dear air sign. You’re not the first person to live with a roomie who is incapable of putting the toilet seat down or operating a dishwasher, and you won’t be the last. Your easygoing nature is likely to be taken advantage of on June 13: either put honey in your roommate’s shampoo bottle or sit down and chat about chores. PISCES (Feb. 19 - March 20) Did you pick up yesterday’s issue of the Times, Pisces? You were on the cover! OK, so maybe the NYT hasn’t discovered you and all of your glory just yet, but your 15 minutes of fame are arriving right on time on June 16. If you don’t have a publicist, phone a friend. You’re going to need all the help you can with this burst of press!

A l ko n
I’ve gone out several times with a girl I really like, but her breath bothers me enough that I don’t want to kiss her until it improves. (It smells like pepper and socks.) She doesn’t smoke, eat stinky foods, or have an odd diet (beyond not eating red meat), so I’m not sure where this is coming from. I think her feelings might be hurt if I were to say something. What’s the best approach? —Holding My Breath
When you read a book about the horrible chemical weapons used in World War I, you shouldn’t think, “Hey, that reminds me of kissing my girlfriend.” People will tell you that you can just give the girl a hinty-poo in the form of gum or a mint. And sure, Altoids can eliminate persistently bad breath—if the person who has it gets killed in an avalanche of them. But terrible breath that isn’t caused by something a person ate or eats regularly could point to dental problems—issues even “curiously strong mints” can’t fix, not even when combined with a really strong mouthwash, like Lysol Basin, Tub & Tile Cleaner. There’s a common misconception—held even by many doctors and dentists—that serious bad breath originates in the stomach, notes the health care research-vetting group the Cochrane Collaboration. In fact, only 9 percent of the cases at an “oral malodor” clinic were caused by things such as gastric imbalances, diet and sinus infections. But 86 percent of the cases originated orally—most caused by gross microscopic critters relaxing and playing poker on a person’s tongue. Studies find that these microbe meetups can be shut down with tongue scraping, at least for a while, but you can’t just present this girl with a Tiffany’s box with a silver tongue scraper. (“Thinking of you ...”) Sure, you may lose her if you say something, but if you don’t, you’ll almost definitely have to ditch her or have your sinuses filled with cement. To break the news, start positive: “I find you totally hot and an amazing person, but I have to tell you: There’s a sort of ongoing issue with your breath, and I’ve read that this can point to dental issues or a need for tongue scraping.” Assuming she isn’t so mortified that she dumps you, this news is likely to send her to the dentist and/or to the drugstore for a tongue scraper. This, in turn, should get you longing to kiss her—a far more enjoyable act once you’re no longer dating a woman who maybe looks like Xena the warrior princess but tastes like Xena’s horse after it’s licked the break room refrigerator.
My buddy was hit on by a girl he plays softball with, but he politely told her he is married, and they’ve since become friends. Recently, he set me up with her. She’s actually very cute and nice, but I can tell that she still likes my friend. I feel like a consolation prize. Is that just in my head? Should I let this girl go even though I like her? —Runner-Up
People often give their romantic partners food-related nicknames. Maybe yours can be “my little half-eaten muffin that somebody handed the homeless guy.” This woman knows in her rational mind that there’s a big wife-shaped roadblock between her and your friend. The problem is, when she initially turned getting him into a goal, she switched on the human motivational system, which is highly efficient in maintaining a craving but lacks an off switch for easily discontinuing one. As for where this leaves you, well, in game show terms, your friend’s the trip to Bermuda; you’re the set of steak knives. When somebody you want still wants somebody else, the temptation is to chase after them and then tie them to a chair and pontificate on your greatness. That’s the most counterproductive thing you could do. This isn’t to say you have to give up on this girl. Just forgo hot pursuit for lukewarm pursuit. Instead of going whole hog, go one-eighth or one-sixteenth hog. In practical terms, make yourself occasionally available but generally somewhat scarce. She should have the sense that you’re also dating other women, and ideally, you are doing that. A month from now, if she’s still looking at your buddy the way a dog looks at a piece of bacon teetering on a counter ledge, it’s probably time to move on.
