Clean Water Writes Editor: Thank you, Journal, for the two articles regarding water in the July 19th issue (“Manure Maneuver” and “Déjà Rescue”). Everybody in the area who has lived here more than 10 years has probably noticed that rivers are lower and green algae blooms are starting earlier. The Journal articles mentioned livestock manure runoff, agricultural fertilizer runoff and harbor and bay dumping. Good on you for illuminating these topics. The rest of the drought-stricken United States this summer would probably envy our plight. Those pelicans (reminds me of Pelican Bay) did not exist when I was a surfed-out kid, and it is great to see them off the federal endangered species list. In Del Norte, Humboldt and Mendocino counties we are interfaced with (and get to enjoy) undeveloped areas all along our population fringes. The Humboldt Wildlife Care Center accepts the responsibility of living next to these semi-natural lands, and many is the animal (and its
rescuer) that has benefitted from the center’s staff and volunteers. I recently found out that Humboldt State biology students comprise a good number of the center’s volunteer force. This also benefits their career credentials. I also came from dairy-owning grandparents and understand the complexity of that business. However the dairies in these counties, precisely because they are handed down through generations, almost always occupy river- and streambed-adjacent property. This carries a little more responsibility than landlocked pasture. Between the many gravel operations and cattle ranches, the rivers in our counties are under more pressure than
other places. This stresses the wildlife that needs rescuing and gives the Humboldt public unsafe water at times. Thank you for the double shot of clean water-issue dialogue! Richard Sessions, McKinleyville
Speed Demons Editor: Thanks for mentioning that “the fastest route” between Eureka and Arcata is Highway 101 (“Blog Jammin’,” July 19). However, for those slightly or very inebriated, Old Arcata Road is still first choice! Over the past five years on the stretch
between the Halvorsen property and Indianola Road, which has a speed limit of 45 mph (five miles per hour less than the freeway), five accidents have occurred. I have witnessed four of these, as they occurred within my yard, or less than 50 meters from my home. All of these, except for the bike accident, were late at night and caused by high speeds and alcohol. I have called the county’s public works department, the California Highway Patrol, my supervisor, Mark Lovelace, and yet no one has taken action. I was told that a radar sign notifying drivers of their

Grove Priorities Editor: Regarding your article “Caltrans Claims Victory in Richardson Grove Decision” (Blog Jammin’, July 12), as a member of the board of directors for the Environmental Protection Information Center and a resident of Arcata, I have a few points to share. First, in my opinion the problem isn’t the fear that Caltrans will cut down or wants to destroy old growth redwoods. The real issue is that widening Highway 101 will disturb the root systems and potentially cause irrevocable damage to the redwood trees of Richardson Grove State Park. No matter what Caltrans would like us to believe, no one can guarantee that when you cut into the roots of a redwood tree it won’t have long-term negative consequences. Second, the widening of the road is unnecessary and a huge waste of money. STAA trucks can and do drive through now, just not safely. More analysis of alternatives that could fix this problem needs to be done. One alternative: Caltrans could put a stoplight on both ends of the grove and equip trucks with an automated system so each truck could pass safely through the grove on its own. Third, we are living through the worst economic climate since the Great Depression. Now is the time to circle the wagons, take inventory and make some hard choices. Spending $10 million on Richardson Grove, $12 million on the proposed Highway 199/197-widening project and another $200 million on the proposed
Humboldt Crabs Baseball
Willits bypass is just plain foolish. Why not maintain the roads that need to be fixed and reallocate the extra funding to more dire needs? Finally, I’d also like to say that I’m not anti-business. I want our local businesses to succeed. If STAA trucks help that happen, I’m not opposed. I just don’t want the state to waste money and potentially destroy California’s irreplaceable treasures in the process. Shawnee Alexandri, Arcata
Railbanking Sham Editor: As a rail advocate, HSU history student and advocate of local business, I cannot stress enough how the idea of railbanking concerns me. The Northwestern Pacific Railroad was once the lifeblood of our county. The NWP traversed beautiful bridges, valleys, canyons of the Eel River and the scenic southern Humboldt area to the Eureka bay. This country was built on the railroads. The United States of America and Humboldt were once centered around the railroad, both economically and commercially. It would be a tragedy to see this 100-year-old asset simply vanish due to unnecessary destruction of the railway. Railbanking — tearing up the rails, paving a trail and then waiting for a hypothetical time to tear the trail up and then re-install track — is a delusional concept, a big
waste of money and resources and a huge blow toward the prospect of ever seeing trains run again. The Timber Heritage Association has been working diligently to remind the public about the fun and educational value of the railroads, acquiring a plethora of interest, as evidenced by the extremely popular crew speeder rides at Samoa, Old Town Eureka and recently Loleta. (Packed trains all day long.) Political gridlock between those who want a trail and those who want the rail will cause nothing to happen. If a plan allows a trail to be placed next to the right-of-way, we can satisfy the plan for the California Coastal Trail and the hopeful Samoa-to-Old Town Eureka excursion train. A moving history exhibit, such as an excursion train, would attract tourists and bring more people to Old Town Eureka, Arcata and the famous Samoa Cookhouse. People love the Skunk Train from Willits to Fort Bragg. Another success story is the Niles Canyon Railway in the East Bay. Cooperation between the trails and rails is essential towards making any beneficial progress. Sean Mitchell, McKinleyville
Time Stamp Editor: I appreciate the invitation to submit my morning photo for the 7:07 cover feature (“7:07 A Moment in Humboldt,”
A Possibly True Story
Once there was a woman speaking poems, whispering really, as she wrote them, only her cats in that bookish room. Two cats. They licked in her words, licked in her solitary voice, licked in the rhythmic rise and fall and pausing, licked in subtle quivers in her breathing, as they licked in soft slivers of their own fur. Soon each cat became a poem. They were good poems, quiet and clean, their meaning a pulse, a muffled rumbling at her touch, as if buried in such dazzling pelts, some animal motor churned, perpetually out of reach. For long moments, the woman held the cats, stroked them, sometimes their claws kneading into her belly, wounding and comforting. She loved the mystery of them, the drift and sway of their tails, sensuous, through air, or gone limp, curled into question marks asleep in her lap. No matter how many poems she spoke, whispered usually, there were only those two cats in the room, love she thought and death, oh they were beautiful, wild things, leaping about, oblivious to names. — Kimberley Pittman-Schulz
July 12) and much enjoyed the robust selections of other Humboldters’ sublime contributions. My photo was entirely random. I knew about the contest, but on Saturday I was working early that morning before leaving for San Francisco to see the opera. I was in Orick surveying birds and noticed the mushroom (which, by the way, made for a delicious addition to a chicken casserole). I looked at my cellphone and saw how close 7:07 a.m. was. I quickly collected “The Prince” (Agaricus augustus) and set the collected ’shroom up in better morning light (completely unaware of the banana slug, thanks for noticing) and took the image on my cell phone at the exact morning time (only camera I had). May I suggest another Humboldt venture into momentdom — 10/11/12, a series day in Humboldt, or, more challenging, 12/12/12 12:12 a.m./p.m.? Gary Lester, McKinleyville

Mall Invaders Editor: I’m writing in response to your story about the mall and Walmart (“Bayshore Mall before and after Walmart,” June 21). When the mall was in the planning stages, I was in a group opposed to it because it would take away community. You said in your article that the mall would add community, but look what happened to downtown Eureka for years. Gone were stores like Killion’s, Redwood Bootery, Daly’s, JC Penney, Woolworth’s ... so many others. We were right, but no one listened to us. Now the mall is in decay like we said it would be — it happened in so many towns across the country. Then they snuck in Walmart — a store known for so much bad. And our town sent a church down to bless it! That made me laugh. We need to wake up and stop the few at the top, who don’t care about our town unless it lines their pockets. I love Humboldt County and very much don’t want it ruined. Charlotte Stuart, Eureka

ver the last couple of weeks, Humboldt County has been virtually crawling with federal law enforcement agents on the prowl for big-time weed dealers. First, on July 10, came United States Drug Enforcement Administration agents, who served multiple search warrants in SoHum and, with help from the Humboldt County Drug Task Force, arrested 13 people — some local, others not. (Three of the 13 were placed on immigration hold status.) Eight days later, agents from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office in Minneapolis, which operates under the Department of Homeland Security, led raids on properties in Bayside, Sunny Brae, Petrolia and Garberville. These raids appeared to be the culmination of a multi-agency, multi-state investigation, and according to the Sioux Falls Argus Leader they led to the arrests
of three South Dakota men. Two of the three, including Sean McFarland, a singer and rhythm guitarist for a popular altcountry band called Snakebeard Jackson, had moved to Humboldt County in March, 2010. All three have been charged with conspiring to distribute at least 220 pounds of marijuana. Clearly the county’s black market marijuana industry is booming, and while local law enforcement didn’t want to say much about the recent raids, referring all questions to equally tight-lipped federal agencies, Humboldt County Sheriff Mike Downey said the backup is welcome. As a matter of fact, he said, “I’m the one, I hope, who initiated it.” Frustrated by the proliferation of large-scale outdoor grow operations, along with the erosion of state resources, Downey decided to ask the federal government for help. Last October he
October he began meeting with U.S. Attorney General Melinda Haag, who has taken a hardline stance against marijuana, even going so far as to target reputable medical marijuana dispensaries (see “Bipartisan Bill” in Blog Jammin’, page 11). And Downey didn’t stop there. “I began to reach out then, not only to the U.S. Attorney’s Office but [also to] the Drug Enforcement Administration, the FBI, the U.S. Marshall’s Office, ATF.” The problem, Downey said, is that state resources for the drug war have all but disappeared. The budget approved earlier this year by Gov. Jerry Brown includes $71 million in cuts to the state’s law enforcement division and threatens to eliminate Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement, which confiscated $17 billion worth of marijuana from California forests in 2010. The inter-governmental Campaign Against Marijuana Planting (CAMP), which once struck fear in the hearts of outdoor growers throughout the Emerald Triangle, is now “a shadow of what it used to be,” Downey said. “Everything’s been downsized. Those programs have been decimated.” Here’s how bad things have gotten: Last year, Humboldt County sheriff’s deputies in helicopters took aerial photographs of nearly a dozen massive outdoor growing operations, mostly located in the Redwood Creek watershed, but they didn’t have the resources to do anything about them, Downey said. Those resources should be easier to come by if the county gets accepted into a federal program that targets large-scale drug trafficking and production. Established in 1988, the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas Program, or HIDTA, is designed to foster cooperation among federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies. Counties that are part of a HIDTA (pronounced hide-uh) also have increased access to federal resources. Downey wants to get Humboldt County in on that action. He and other law enforcement officials in the county have petitioned the Office of National Drug Control Policy to be added to the existing Northern California HIDTA, which includes 11 counties stretching up the coast from Monterey to Mendocino and east to Alameda, Contra Costa and Lake. The benefits of the program are both strategic and financial. Each HIDTA — and there are 28 across the country, incorporating 16 percent of all U.S. counties and 60 percent of the U.S. population — is guided by an executive board that includes federal, state, local and tribal law
enforcement leaders. The board designs initiatives and requests funding to implement them. The program also offers support for technology, intelligence analysis and training. Ron Brooks is the director of the Northern California HIDTA, which was designated in 1997. At the time it included just 10 counties; Mendocino wasn’t added until last year, following a collaborative application effort led by Sheriff Tom Allman. Brooks said there are no hard and fast criteria for acceptance into the program, but a key step is for local agencies to conduct a thorough analysis of drug trafficking in the region. “They should try to develop a true threat picture,” Brooks said, “not just a guess but to really understand: How many trafficking organizations are operating in the county? What’s their production capacity? What’s their level of sophistication? And how does it impact other parts of the state or the country?” Political support is also important. Mendocino County engaged Congressman Mike Thompson and Sen. Diane Feinstein in its effort to join the Northern California HIDTA. Thompson believes Humboldt should be included as well, and not just because of marijuana. “Local law enforcement’s resources are strained because of the ongoing fight against the rampant expansion of methamphetamine, heroin and marijuana trafficking,” Thompson said in a statement to the Journal. “They need the assistance of HIDTA funds, which will allow the county’s law enforcement to improve their intelligence-gathering abilities and more effectively combat the threat of widespread drug trafficking.” Brooks said the timeline for a decision on Humboldt’s inclusion is uncertain. A lot depends on whether there’s enough money in the program. “They don’t add counties very often,” he said. Lately the federal government has made little distinction between medical marijuana dispensaries and commercial grow operations, going after both with renewed zeal. While Downey acknowledges that some dispensaries are clearly motivated by profit rather than compassion, he still believes that the state should be allowed to regulate dispensaries. But that’s not his call. “If the federal government is going to have the stance that any type of cultivation is illegal,” he said, “then I need some help here.”

State Parks Scandalpalooza “Our parks are closing! Our parks are closing!” And so the terrible cry rose up from all of the would-be campers, nature-strollers, deer watchers, bird oglers and others drawn to our state parks. California was in deep deficit doo-doo, and 70 of our 278 parks had to close in order to save $22 million. Some of our Humboldt-area treasures were on the block. The scramble by ordinary citizens, business owners, nonprofits and even the federal government to rescue most of these parks from closure should have brought tears to your eyes. Now, of course, all we can is hear is a loud, collective snort of scorn and disbelief: For more than a decade, according to an investigation by the Sacramento Bee, the California State Parks department has been sitting on “nearly $54 million in surplus money.” And nobody knew. Yes, there’ve been personnel changes since the pile of money was discovered. Notes the Bee: Parks Director Ruth Coleman stepped down, and chief deputy Michael Harris was let go, amid questions about the underreported funds dating back 12 years, according to Clark Blanchard, a spokesman for the secretary of the Natural Resources Agency, which oversees the parks department.

He Knew How to Live Political writer and provocateur Alexander Cockburn, who lived in Petrolia since 1990, died Friday in Germany where he was undergoing cancer treatment. He was 71. He wrote for the Village Voice, The Nation and numerous other publications — including this paper, for which he wrote, among other things, a cover story on the Judi Bari bombing and a guest Town Dandy column on gun control and politics. But he’s probably best known, these days, for his writing in the political newsletter and website Counterpunch, which he co-edited with Jeffrey St. Clair. St. Clair wrote a farewell to Cockburn on Saturday, and he’s been running more reminiscences and photos since. Newspapers, bloggers, professors, lovers, haters — everyone’s remembering him, the whole world over.

For many years, Cockburn did much of his provoking from his woodsy, cozy, art- and light-filled home — which always smelled of good cooking, visitors reported — and gardening haven in Petrolia. His mountain redoubt was long guarded by the one thing (we suppose) that he dared put on a pedestal, a crusty old rusty typewriter. ● CULTURE, OBITS, POLITICS / BY HEIDI WALTERS / JULY 23, 2:40 P.M.
And He Had a Funeral Wish Or, at least, an early-on notion. In his book The Golden Age Is in Us: Journeys & Encounters 1987-1994 (published in 1996), Alexander Cockburn (who died Friday) starts with a short essay — written in 1987 after he went to a funeral in Key West — musing on possibilities for his own funeral (and on the pitfalls in Lefty send-offs). He wanted the aria from the start of Cosi Fan Tutte, “sung by the flirty girls.” ● FRIVOLITY / BY ANDREW GOFF / JULY 19, 10:53 A.M.
Dave Chappelle in Fortuna OK sure, that’s kind of a big deal. Reclusive stand-up comedy legend Dave Chappelle repped a black, stonerfont-emblazoned “Humboldt” sweatshirt when he was spotted by a few local residents in Fortuna’s Starbucks on Wednesday evening. The one-time “Chappelle’s Show” star and a friend were taking a break from their motorcycle trip up Highway 101 and struck up a conversation with Mikkei Fritz, an actor from Oregon who was in town visiting his cousin, Frank Florvilus, and Frank’s wife, Ashley Florvilus. The following is Mikkei’s first-hand account of the momentous run in:
use of marijuana, or that the property which is subject to a proceeding was possessed in compliance with State law regarding the medical use of marijuana.
“We greeted each other while I was at the register. I asked if he has been around traveling and he said, “Yea. I’m just taking my time and making my way up north as I find myself.” He didn’t say what his final destination was going to be. Then we started talking about my job at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. …. I told him I was Balthazar in Romeo and Juliet and I played a cheerleader in The Very Merry Wives of Windsor, Iowa. … He ordered a regular coffee with cream. As I was leaving I asked if I could get a quick picture and he didn’t have a problem with that. The last thing he said to me was, “I don’t even know you, but I already know you’re a great guy, a better guy than me.” We laughed and shook hands and said goodbye to each other.” There you have it, Humboldt.

Bipartisan Bill Would Protect Medical Marijuana Patients from Feds What do Lynne Woolsey, Ron Paul and Barney Frank have in common? Okay, yes, they’re all U.S. Congress members (for a few more months, anyway). But more to the point, they’re part of a bipartisan group of lawmakers co-sponsoring a bill that would give valid medical marijuana patients extra cover from federal prosecution. The Truth In Trials Act would allow medical marijuana patients to use compliance with state laws as an “affirmative defense” in court: Any person facing prosecution or a proceeding for any marijuana-related offense under any Federal law shall have the right to introduce evidence demonstrating that the marijuana-related activities for which the person stands accused were performed in compliance with State law regarding the medical
PHOTO COURTESY ASHLEY FLORVILUS.
The larger the operation, the greater the likelihood that there will be abuse of the state’s medical marijuana laws, and marijuana in the hands of individuals who do not have a demonstrated medical need.
Haag has threatened to seize the Oakland property where the dispensary operates, along with its sister shop in San Jose. The Truth In Trials Act would make such actions more difficult. It has a provision that reads: Any property seized in connection with a prosecution or proceeding to which this section applies … shall be returned to the owner not later than 10 days after the court finds the defense is valid, minus such material necessarily destroyed for testing purposes. The bill, introduced yesterday, is sponsored by Rep. Sam Farr, a Democrat whose 17th Congressional District includes Salinas and Santa Cruz. ●

The bill reads like a declaration of states’ rights at a time when federal prosecutors are Hulk-smashing dispensaries left and right, sparking criticism from state and local officials, industry groups, journalists and likely voters. Northern California U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag has been perhaps the most defiantly aggressive pot prosecutor, going after some of the most reputable dispensaries in the state and penning implied threats of prosecutions to local officials. When Haag’s office busted Oakland’s Harborside Health Center earlier this month, it wasn’t because the dispensary had broken any laws — she just thought it was too big. She justified her office’s asset forfeiture proceeding with this statement, which explains:

Cheap D Eats
ON THE COVER THE CHECK AT ANNIE’S CAMBODIAN CUISINE. PHOTO BY JENNIFER FUMIKO CAHILL
epending on how old you are, the idea of two people eating well for $20 — tax and tip included — generally yields a sigh of nostalgia or a raised eyebrow of skepticism. And yet, it turns out there are quite a few places in Humboldt County where you can sit down to a truly good dinner for two, drop a Jackson on the table, and hit the road. A burger, a slice or a sandwich would be too easy, though fans of all of these have lobbied hard for inclusion. The challenge of finding cheap eats is not sacrificing too much for price. We weren’t planning to skimp on quality of ingredients, atmosphere or (shudder) hygiene. When you do find a place that hits the trifecta of tasty, nice and cheap, you have to decide whether or not to share the intel with others or keep it your little secret. We’re sharing. And these are only some of the options out there. No chains, no fast food, no trucks, no take-out, no lunch specials. No problem.

menu at Annie’s Cambodian falls into the cheap category, but with a little judicious ordering, a $20 dinner for two under the paintings of jungle ruins is possible. Phnom Penh noodle soup (medium, $7.25) is the stick-to-your-ribs option. Follow the usual pho drill and slide the side plate of raw mung bean sprouts, sliced hot peppers and cilantro into the soup and rice noodles, but taste it before you reach for the chili sauce. I have a touch of condimentia, and I tend to get a little nuts with all those little jars on the table. But the pho at Annie’s is so earthy and fragrant that I skip my usual sauce frenzy.

He likes to get a bowl and cut the whole thing up into a warm salad. The crepe wrapped in lettuce is a refreshing balance — that mix of the raw and the cooked that’s so wonderful in Southeast Asian food — with just a hint of the coconut flavor, though the sprouts were a bit soft. The sauce is lightly sweet and spicy, adding some intrigue without taking over all the other tastes. We’ll have to come back and try the salad method for science … and tip a little more, because the carved wooden statues at the door were kind of judging us on the way out.

Since there’s room in the budget for a side, you need to do a little soul-searching. You could go with the healthy Greek salad ($4.65) topped with olives and feta with a side of tart, herby dressing. Or you could follow your id to the fried haloumi cheese ($4.95). The latter is perfectly salty and firm with a bacon-crisp edge that’s like a drug. A creamy, fried drug. You can always have the salad next time.
835 J St, Arcata. (707) 822-9474 There are some lovely café tables and a sweet garden outside, and inside is hipster-pretty with a reclaimed wood wall, high ceilings and gauzy drapes. We asked the server for help ordering and he suggested we cut a swath straight through the happy ho ur menu, available Tuesday-Thursday from 5:30 to 7 p.m.. Everything on it is $2, $3 or $6 — simplicity itself. Don’t let the happy hour part scare you off. It’s not the greasy, leaden bar food you’ve been subjected to before in the name of cheap drinks. At 3 Foods, the dishes are inventive and wholesome — there’s enough going on with any given plate to make for a little conversation, but it’s not kooky. And splitting the small plates works as a kind of mini tasting menu. The Light and Lovely salad ($3) of mixed greens, gorgonzola and apple is

dotted with yummy praline-like walnuts and dressed with a vinaigrette that plays off their sweetness. Black on White ($3), an Egyptian snack, comes with sliced apple beside a stack of soft pita wedges to dip first in olive oil and then in a cup of crispy sesame seeds, cinnamon and other spices. It’s marvelous, and it’s so fun to eat, like Fun Dip for grown-ups. The spices commingle along with the oil into something rich, nutty and spicy-sweet. One wonders why Egypt has been holding out on us. The Golden Nuggets ($3) are, on the one hand, just tater tots. On the other hand, they’re tater tots. Don’t pretend you don’t love them. It’s as obnoxious as pretending you don’t watch TV. And the dips give them the respect they deserve, with a smoky homemade barbecue sauce and a barely lavender-scented honey mustard. A little nostalgia, a little something new. The chicken on the Viva

We were satisfied halfway through, but we were unable to stop ourselves. According to our waiter, it’s the same stuff they use on their macaroni and cheese, which is heavier and richer. Dang.

health department. Sure, Mexican food is a pretty safe bet for a cheap and filling meal, especially when plastic forks are involved, but this little organic burrito stand in Garberville has something of a following. Some of us hear the words “organic restaurant” and secretly fear we’ll be fed cut grass. And if you lived through the raw food trend, you probably ate some. This will not happen to you at Nacho Mama. There are burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas and sides that could easily be mixed and matched into a hearty $20 meal for two. A pile of Surfer Nachos ($8.50) comes with plenty of stew-y shredded beef, pinto beans, cheese and guacamole. The toppings are generous, so there’s no dreaded wasteland of dry chips at the bottom and no need to turn on one another for the last of the goodies. The Surfer Burrito ($8.75) with chunks of chicken, black beans, brown rice and tart verde sauce is a great pillow of a thing, but not at all greasy. The salsa and guacamole are fresh, and the flavors of the individual ingredients stand out instead of blurring together, though a little more salt wouldn’t have hurt. And it’s nice to eat brown rice without feeling punished — instead, it adds a nice nuttiness to the burrito. You and your companion can split

cuisine is a cheese-delivery system for you, then you’re going to need to add some, but the burrito is pretty satisfying already with the dollops of sour cream and guacamole. Sometimes you need to get some veggies, and the taco salad ($6.25) with chicken is the way to go. It’s modest in comparison to the deluxe version that comes in a deep-fried tortilla amphitheater, but the chicken is moist and tasty, and the little mound of lettuce, chips, sour cream and guacamole is a nice, light meal. If you’re looking for something a little more substantial, the à la carte burritos, enchiladas and plate-blanketing quesadillas in the same price range will fit the bill. And if you qualify, the children’s/ seniors’ menu has generous bean-and -cheese burrito and quesadilla plates that include sides of beans and rice. They run about $5.95.

SIMONA'S RASPBERRY RISOTTO PHOTO BY SIMONA CARINI
Pink Risotto A savory raspberry dish By Simona Carini
n Italy, spring sings a berry-flavored song, with strawberries breaking the monopoly of winter fruit. My mother often featured them at the end of a meal and I have memories of picking them in friends’ gardens and in woods. Blackberries are connected to summer afternoons spent reaching out for the branch with the biggest fruit, the one that was always an inch too far from the farthest point I could safely reach. Raspberries, on the other hand, not as readily available as strawberries or blackberries, made rarer appearances in my life, until I moved to California, where they have become one of the reasons to welcome summer. Now berry season is underway: Berries’ vivid colors brush away winter blues and their flavors inspire the creative cook. While the immediate association might be berries at breakfast or for dessert, berries also perform very well in salads and other non-sweet dishes. If you are the designated berry picker or purchaser, you’ll need to make sure that a viable quantity of the chosen berry reaches the kitchen. A conscious effort to restrain yourself is definitely needed in this challenging situation.
While I considered myself an expert in blackberry picking, I had no idea what to expect from a raspberry bush until we grew a couple in our yard (unfortunately, they did not last, for various reasons). Raspberries have an ethereal quality: Once picked, the berry is hollow — which is not the case with blackberries. Usually displayed alongside strawberries at farmers’ markets and in grocery stores, raspberries look so delicate compared to the larger, sturdier cousins — and they are. The lightest touch is required if you want to preserve raspberries’ integrity. The easiest way to handle these berries is to transfer them from the plant or basket straight to your mouth. But I also like to do something with them — add them to a green salad for example, together with sliced peaches. The result is a colorful salad with a distinct fruity flavor. My favorite way of using raspberries as an ingredient is in a risotto. Strawberry risotto is an item you often find on the menu of restaurants in Italy. Only recently have I finally perfected a good recipe for it, but that is a story for another day. While I was still searching for the right combination to produce a strawberry

Sprinkle sugar and lemon on the raspberries, toss gently and let stand for a couple of hours at room temperature. Purée the raspberries, then remove seeds by pressing through a mesh strainer set over a bowl. (Only the raspberry seeds should remain in the strainer.) Set aside the raspberry purée. Bring the light vegetable broth to a simmer in a 1 quart saucepan and keep it at that temperature (you may not need it all, depending on the variety of rice you use). In a 2 quart saucepan, warm up olive oil, then add shallot and thyme and stir. Cook for a few minutes until the shallot is translucent, then add the rice. Toast the rice for one minute while stirring,
then add the wine. Let the wine evaporate while stirring the rice, then add enough of the simmering vegetable broth to barely cover the rice. Allow the rice to absorb most of the broth, then add more broth, a ladleful at a time, letting the rice absorb most of the broth before adding more. Make sure the rice never gets dry, keep it at a lively simmer and stir at regular intervals. Taste the rice 15 minutes after the first addition of broth. If it feels a bit hard at the core, cook it a minute or two longer, then check again. (Cooking time depends on various factors, including the kind of rice.) Make the last addition of broth smaller, so the cooked risotto is a bit dry. Risotto should be soft and creamy but with some body (slightly al dente). In the meantime, warm up the raspberry purée (you can use your microwave, or warm by placing the bowl with the purée on top of the pan with the broth). As soon as the rice is done, stir in the raspberry purée. Remove the pan from the heat, add the cheese and stir well to incorporate. Taste and adjust the salt, if needed. Let the risotto rest, covered, for a couple of minutes, while you gather the guests around the table. Serve immediately and enjoy.

risotto I liked, I decided to experiment using a different berry. Raspberries seemed like a good candidate. I planned a recipe and the realization of it supported my intuition, so I have been making this colorful, fruity risotto for some time.

the pride of Milanese cuisine, is traditionally used for this “day after” recipe. I have used leftovers from all my various risotti with vegetables or berries to prepare it. The idea is to shape the risotto into a thick pancake and pan fry it on both sides until a crisp crust forms. Risotto is thus given a second chance to please the palate and takes full advantage of it. ●

four elements of classic hip hop culture: “DJ-ing, the B-Boys and B-Girls — they’re the dancers — graffiti art and MCing — rapping.” B-Boying is “rocking the beat — reflecting what the music is doing,”says Smith. “We spontaneously create moves and get aggressive energy out and amaze ourselves,” adds Atienza. “It happens so fast — everyone saw it, fed off it and helped create it.” The Rockers dance to old school hip hop artists like Erik B and Rakim,

s Rex Atienza prepares to settle on a bench in the courtyard of Redwood Raks to talk before one of his free breakdancing classes, he asks if his crew, the Humboldt Rockers, might join him. Atienza wants them with him since it’s the Rockers we’re talking about. This opening gesture speaks volumes about the soft-spoken Atienza, known as Reckless Rex when he breakdances, and his relationship with the B-Boy breakdance crew he leads. “B-Boys make a life for themselves out of dancing,” he says. “B-Boys are role models. We gain personal self-confidence, good structure and discipline. We say, ‘Let’s do this as a team.’” This is exhibition dancing, hip hopstyle, known variously as B-Boying, breakdancing or just breaking. Attend just about any Humboldt dance showcase and you’ll sees scores of young women dancing, but hardly any young men. An exception was a moment in Shoshanna’s Arabian Nights Nutcracker last winter when a rush of males filled the stage to perform an Egyptian martial arts dance form replete with sticks. That awesome shift in the energy came from the Humboldt Rockers. “Breakdancing is masculine and aggressive,” explains the shaggy, laid back 35-year-old Atienza, who started the Humboldt Rockers in 2004. “It’s a warrior dance with roots in martial arts.” Compact and frenetic Rockers co-founder Brian Smith, age 30, aka B Smash, agrees: “There’s a male stereotype associated with their style of dancing,” he says. “Girls think breakdancers need

But the Rockers also go right to Atienza adds, “This style of dancing the source and break to funk by James works with your strengths. We maximize Brown. B-Boying can trace its roots to the your abilities and talents to create your funky acrobatic, high-stepping style of the own style.” Godfather of Soul, A big draw for boys are the battles, who was in turn competitions at studios and youth clubs influenced by where crews go head-to-head in a danceAfrican dance. off in the middle of a circle of onlookers.

moved a lot, and breaking was a grounding influence.”When I was growing up there was no one like me to keep me out of drugs and gangs,” he says. That’s one reason he’s offering free classes in the summer. “I want to be that guy” for these kids, he says. The kids include his own son Erik, who’s 17 and known as Kid Reckless. Erik says breaking “opens doors to different aspects of art in dance — individuals stand out when they become a part of this and make a positive image of themselves and gain abilities.” His dad concurs. “Hip Hop is our culture,” he says. “We live it. … We get to express ourselves physically in a positive way. I can’t speak in front of 10,000 people. But I can dance in front of 10,000 people.” The Humboldt Rockers class has a workshop atmosphere. Kids spread out in clusters, trying out footwork and moves the older guys demonstrate. A group gathers around mats, testing power moves. Atienza goes head over heels, then says, like a challenge, “How long can you hold your freeze?” Lanky Daniel Anderson, whose B-Boy name is Rubber Dan, leads boys in dolphin dives that have them rolling on the floor like a wave. Twelve-year-old Sophia Belton, the only girl on the crew, comes over to talk. “When I was 5, my uncle took me to a breakdance battle,” she says. “I started taking classes and it really stuck. Rex is such a good teacher. He’s so interested in what you do. … I’m the only girl breakdancer I know. Most girls are into girly dance” — meaning ballet. “Too pink.” The class culminates in a circle of kids and Rockers moving to the beat, with everyone getting a chance to solo in the center and Smith high-fiving each as he or she rejoins the group. Atienza teaches breakdancing in local schools, from elementary to high school to HSU. And everyone’s invited to the free summer sessions, 5-7 p.m. on Sundays at Redwood Raks World Dance Studio, Eighth and L streets, Arcata.

xalted guitar god Jerry Garcia would have turned 70 on Aug. 1, if not for the fact that he proved himself all too mortal in 1995 when a heart attack took his life. Local Deadheads have a couple of ways to celebrate Jerry’s legacy this week. Saturday the Donna Jean Godchaux Band plays at Swain’s Flat Outpost, out Highway 36 near Carlotta. Born in Alabama, Donna worked as a singer in Muscle Shoals, backing artists like Elvis (on “Suspicious Minds”) and Percy Sledge (“When a Man Loves a Woman”) before she met and married keyboardist Keith Godchaux. The couple moved to California and ended up joining the Grateful Dead and “playing in the band” through most of the ‘70s. They also performed in the Jerry Garcia Band, and Jerry helped out on a “Keith and Donna” side project before the couple started The Heart of Gold Band with Steve Kimock. After Keith died in a car wreck in 1980, Donna kept on singing, forming one
band after another — and she’s still at it. The latest incarnation of DJGB includes Mark Karan from Ratdog on lead guitar and Mookie Siegel from the David Nelson Band on keys. Will they play some Dead tunes? You can count on it. Guitar looper Jay Roller and local stringband Kindred Spirits open. On Wednesday, Jerry’s actual birthday, Arcata’s Deadhead headquarters, Humboldt Brews, celebrates with local Dead tribute Play Dead, redubbed Playful Dead for the occasion due to the inclusion of ace keyboardist Mike Emerson, a former local who moved south and has been playing blues, funk and such in a whole bunch of greater Bay Area bands. Speaking of tributes, Thursday’s free concert at the C Street Plaza in Old Town has Joel: The Band, the self-proclaimed “premier rock and roll Billy Joel cover band on the West Coast.” Got Cumbia? Spirit Vibrations presents Antioquia, from Central America via Oak-
land, mixing cumbia, soukous, funk and rock on Thursday at Nocturnum. Kerry Wing and Robin Applewood open. WinoVino got its start in 2006 when guitarist Sanford Krones left New Orleans for Austin because of some hurricane and met fiddler/mandolinist Forrest Johnson, also new to Texas. Over time they expanded, adding accordion, percussion, bass, horns, etc. and started exploring the same sort of gypsy cabaret sounds you hear from bands like Vagabond Opera and Fishtank Ensemble. A West Coast tour brings the band to the Jambalaya Thursday with like-minded Lost Coasters Orphan in the Afterlife. Self-described “blues-rock cosmic countryinfused duo with an edge” 7Horse is up from L.A. for a Friday show at the Jambalaya. Phil Leavitt and Joie Calio play dark, soulful tunes like “Meth Lab Zoso Stick,” which would fit well on Breaking Bad. The Fieldbrook Summer Music Festival kicks off Friday evening at Fieldbrook Family Market with blues rockers Fieldtown, then goes full bore Saturday starting at noon with State of Play, The Sierra Rose Band, Scotch Wiggly, The Usual Suspects, Black Cat Bone, The John David Young Trio and The Bare Necessities playing rock and blues (and some Dead tunes). The Fest continues Sunday afternoon with The Fickle Hillbillies, The Rezonators and Moonsong among others. Jeff DeMark tells his tales and sings songs with the latest version of The LaPatinas at the Sewell Gallery Friday, this time out with Rooster McClintock’s “Genuine” Jake Wiegandt on guitar. “It’ll be a different flavor with Jake,” said DeMark. “We’ll do a couple of new things including one story with some Merle Haggard songs. I try to keep it fresh, keep the band on its toes.” Friday at Red Fox Tavern catch The Luminaries, a “conscious hip hop collective” from Venice (Cali, not Italy) who promise to “shine the light and serve the world with … eclectic high vibe music reminiscent of the golden era of hip hop.” The local opener is DJ Gobi. The note from DJ Gabe Pressure says, “We be doing somthin’ new.” Well, sort of. Perhaps tiring of the ubiquitous ‘80s dance nights, this time Gabe and his DJ cohorts Anya and Zephyr are spinning “all things ‘90s” Friday at Nocturnum. Do you suppose some day they’ll be doing nostalgic ‘00s dance parties? Yes, it’s time for another Missing Link’s Got Soul Saturday night at Humboldt Brews. The usual cast of “misfits, merrymakers and miscreants” (the DJs’ description, not mine) will once again fill the dance floor spinning vintage vinyl. This month’s special guest: DJ ATM from Portland. The sign tacked to a power pole read simply “Afro-Cuban” with an arrow pointing toward HSU. What did it mean? Howie Kaufman‘s annual Explorations in Afro-Cuban Drum and Dance “total immersion” workshops are under way this week. A culminating performance Saturday night at the Van Duzer Theatre
brings the master teachers together. Lázaro Galarraga, Roman Diaz, Sandy Pérez, Miguel Bernal, Jesus Diaz, Susana Arenas, Silfredo La O and Michael Spiro are among those exploring electrifying Afro-Cuban folkloric music — rumba, conga, orisha, etc. The Soulful Sidekicks, aka Laura Hennings and Ginger Casanova, host a Women’s Music Night Saturday at the Westhaven Center for the Arts. Harpist Lonnie Magellan and guitarist Ami Brusca join them along with Eva York, Jasmine Spoelman and Jamila DreckerWaxman, who will be honoring poet Ruth Mountaingrove. A Fertile World presents its third annual Humboldt Garden Party Saturday and Sunday at its shop on West End Road. Along with tips on gardening, free samples, etc. the store will have reggae by Woven Roots on Saturday with The Mighty Redwood Ambassadors and Elephant Dub Brigade Sunday, plus DJ Dub Cowboy and Aydee Dub, EDM from PsyFi (of Womp Womp Wednesdays fame) and Touch (from Deep Groove Society). Added bonus: Metal Mulisha freestyle motocross rider Julian Dusseau roaring around doing tricks on his dirt bike. SoundStick Audio presents the “No Home Like the Road Tour,” a blast of hardcore metal Friday at the Eureka Vets Hall. Three L.A. bands, Stand As Giants, The Collected and At Our Expense, join forces with Seattle’s Seize The Sun on the road. Local teens Subdivided open the Eureka show (at 6 p.m.) with music that’s probably not as hard and metallic. Subdivided bassist Jesse Rovai figures his band will fit in “Slightly, but it will def be a departure from what that crowd is used to.” This may be one of Subdivided’s last shows since Jesse and guitarist Calvin Yeager are both headed off to college soon. (Drummer Chris Nelson is headed into his senior year at Eureka High.) Saturday the trio plays at Blondie’s, one of the rare all-ages local venues, with Hoodoo, a blues/rock band from McKinleyville, and Hockey Slut a “big beat” band from Fortuna. Next Friday, Subdivided shares a bill with The 51 Cards at another all-ages space, Mantova’s Two Street Music. Jesse sees finding places that allow under-agers to play as “one of the biggest problems we face as a band,” at least so far, although the fact that Calvin will soon be living on the East Coast could be a bigger problem. “We are going to try and practice over some kind of video chat,” says a hopeful Jesse. The Shanty rocks on with a Monday “girls in the garage” show pairing Eureka’s hot new lo-fifem combo The Lost Luvs with Shannon and The Clams from Oakland, a stripped-down garage band fronted by Shannon Shaw, one of the “Punx” in Hunx and His Punx. Did you miss Caitlin Jemma‘s birthday party? You have another chance to hear her Wednesday at the Jambalaya as In Human Creation presents “Beautiful Locals” with Caitlin, guitar wizard Todd Krider and alt. folk songwriter Samuel Whitlach. Beautiful indeed. ● northcoastjournal.com • North Coast Journal • Thursday, July 26, 2012

Humboldt’s Exhausted Weekend Somewhere on the long list of reasons why you chose to spend your life in Humboldt County is scrawled something that resembles “the fresh air.” Our mixture of salty Pacific breezes and damp, fresh redwood are enough to draw tens of thousands of people-filled cars to our pristine beaches and forests each year. Breathe it in, Humboldt. (Inhales) Ahh … But all them purty smells can get a little played, right? Guess what! This weekend you get to take a vacation from all that nasal monotony and trade in the alluring scents of nature for arousing carbon monoxide! How? Well, this weekend offers Humboldtians not one but two opportunities to suck some serious exhaust! First, there will be “cars, cars and more cars,” literally as far as the eye can see, when the annual Fortuna Redwood AutoXpo again rolls into the Friendly City for three days (Friday, July 27 to Sunday July 29) of chrome, bobby socks and vintage rock ‘n’ roll! The streets will be lined with custom, classic vehicles of yesteryear all weekend, yes, but here’s some other highlights: Friday: Watch the shiny rides arrive and make their way down Main Street and Fortuna Boulevard starting at 6 p.m. Then, pull up your poodle skirt and rock your ginchiest sunglasses for the annual
sock hop taking place Friday at 8 p.m. in Fortuna’s River Lodge. ($5.) Saturday: From dawn til dusk Main Street will look like Jay Leno’s garage. But on top of that there’s an antique tractor pull from 1 to 3 p.m. and a poker run for all the automobile enthusiast/card sharks out there. Sunday: More car gawking opportunity if you need it, but Sunday’s main event takes place at Fortuna’s Rodeo Grounds where the annual Burn Out Contest will kick up rubbery dust and smoke and rattle ear drums starting at 2 p.m. But the Fortuna AutoXpo isn’t your only chance to worship the combustion engine this weekend. We’re doubling up on the fumes, kids! The Monster X Monster Truck Show invades Redwood Acres Fairgrounds at 6 p.m. on both Friday, July 27, and Saturday, July 28. You’ve got 10,000 pound giants spinning donuts, popping wheelies and smashing their smaller, weaker brethren while you say, “Woo!” Tickets are $18/$10 for the wee motorheads. Need to know if it’s worth your hard-earned dough? Google “Monster X Tour” for a taste of all the big, round, rubber glory. So, enjoy the fresh air some other weekend.

Power to the Peeps The San Francisco Mime Troupe returns Between the Barclays Bank/Libor rate-rigging affair and the HSBC money-laundering scandal, the banking industry and bankers in general have been facing some bad press of late. So it’s no surprise that the always-topical (never silent) San Francisco Mime Troupe features crooked bankers in its latest musical, For the Greater Good or The Last Election. The fact is, crooked bankers and financial crises are not exactly new, nor are they a new topic for theatre. The Mime Troupe borrowed the basic plot for the new show from a play, The Poor of New York, written by Irish playwright Dion Boucicault in the mid-19th century, around the time of another major worldwide financial downturn. “The Panic of 1857” was the world’s first global economic crisis, with a declining international economy leading to trouble on the domestic front with bank failures and massive unemployment. Boucicault’s melodrama concerned the shifting fortunes of a not-too-honest banker and his clients. Trusted with the fortune of a wealthy family, the banker manipulates the books so he gets rich while the family becomes destitute. The play was universal enough to be restaged in England subsequently where it was titled The Poor of London and later The Poor of Liverpool. The Mime Troupe’s updated story begins during the stock market crash of 1987, with Wall Street banker/political consultant Gideon Bloodgood (Ed Holmes) covering his investment losses by embezzling the fortune of dying war hero Capt. Algood
Fairweather (Velina Brown), leaving the soldier’s widow and daughter to live on government cheese and food stamps. Mime Troupe playwright/director Michael Gene Sullivan turns things around, telling the tale from the point of view of the “Godzillionaires,” with the bankers as a maligned, oppressed minority. As the Mime Troupe puts it: “Pity the poor one percent! Abused in that sliver of press they don’t own, condemned in the streets by a rabble who don’t appreciate the benefits of being trickled down on, raked over the coals by the few politicians who aren’t lined up to kiss their wealthy, powerful butts.” The “rabble” here have joined the Occupy movement, and of course, this being an election year, you can expect reference to Citizens United and rousing songs like “Take Back America.” Pat Moran supplied music and lyrics for the show; he also plays in the band alongside Michael Bello and Joel Fadness. The Mime Troupe’s summer tour of For the Greater Good or the Last Election comes to the Mateel Community Center in Redway on Saturday, July 28. The Mime Troupe band performs at 7:30 p.m.; curtain time is at 8 p.m. The Mateel folks invite you to come early. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for an “all-American” dinner: barbecued chicken (or tofu), garlic mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, cole slaw and apple pie (or vegan apple crisp). Tickets ($20) are available at the door only; food costs extra. More info at www.mateel.org. — Bob Doran

cd I Like to Keep Myself in Pain By Kelly Hogan - Anti-
Kelly Hogan is what one might call an active wallflower. Hogan is best known as a superb back-up vocalist for an impressive and long list of musical icons and indie heroes - including Mavis Staples, Alejandro Escovedo, Jon Langford and most importantly, her close friend, Neko Case. After an auto accident tragically killed two members of her ‘90s band The Jody Grind, Hogan left center-stage, while moving laterally on the stage floor. Scattering three solo records from 1996, Hogan has released her first solo effort in over a decade for the esteemed Anti- label. It’s high time, and fortunately for Hogan, her timing is perfect. When Anti- president Andy Kaulkin proposed working on a record with her in 2009, Hogan recalled in a recent Chicago Tribune interview, “I thought I was being punked.” But she was mistaken. On the suggestion of Kaulkin, Hogan amassed songs with musicians/artists whom she had collaborated with for the past two decades. She ended up writing 40 fan letters for song requests. Kaulkin brought in legendary Stax keyboardist Booker T. Jones, veteran LA session drummer James Gadson and bassist Gabriel Roth, founder of Brooklyn’s Daptone label (and one of Sharon Jones’ Dap-Kings. Hogan asked NRBQ guitarist Scott Lignon, who assisted her with basic arrangements, to complete her backing band. The result, I Like to Keep Myself in Pain, is a masterful union of pop sensibilities with country-soul, recalling a prevalent sound amongst Southern-based musicians and songwriters in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. Taking certain cues from the classic Dusty in Memphis, Hogan finds herself with an inside track. Her voice reveals her deep Georgia-based roots; she simultaneously draws inspiration from pioneers who forged a merging of genres into the mainstream namely Bill Withers and Charlie Rich. Both artists, reared in the South, artfully inserted soul, gospel, R&B and blues influences into their respective pop-folk and country styles. The songs are brilliantly executed to serve Hogan’s distinct interpretation, sound and groove from the Bacharach-influenced orchestration of the bittersweet “We Can’t Have Nice Things” (written by Jack Pendarvis and Andrew Bird) to the laidback, Bobby Charles-like swing of the album’s title track, penned by Robyn Hitchcock. Her sole composition, “Golden,” written for and about Case, is a sincere, tip-your-beer gesture wrapped in a glowing, celebratory arrangement; the rhythm section is locked down allowing subtle, perfected color added by Lignon and Jones. And that’s the consistent beauty of Hogan’s new release. It’s filled with the convergence of fortune, and Hogan is the first to recognize it, confidently taking center stage and the production helm. By wishing her friend the “golden” touch of success, Hogan may have found it for herself. — Mark Shikuma

Tom Hardy as Bane and Christian Bale as Batman in The Dark Knight Rises.
Nolan completes his Batman trilogy in brilliantly bleak style By John J. Bennett email@example.com
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Writer/ director/self-avowed comic book supergeek James Gunn (Slither, Super) recently spoke with great fervor about the themes and undercurrents of the Batman mythology. In particular he referenced Batman’s “unquenchable thirst [for] vengeance because somebody killed his parents, and he’s got this bottomless pit inside himself [because] he can never do that.” Gunn uses this idea to leverage his hatred of Tim Burton’s Batman (1989). I have and will continue to enjoy that version, but I get Gunn’s point. Burton undermined the gravity of Batman’s “unquenchable thirst” by making his parents’ long-ago killer a modern-day super-villain (Jack Nicholson’s Joker), thus closing the thematic loop. Basically, Burton got it fundamentally wrong, and it’s one of the many aspects that Christopher Nolan has
managed to get resoundingly right in his trilogy. Even more than the previous two Nolan Batman movies, The Dark Knight Rises contains moments of palpable, aching sadness and is permeated with an air of genuine tragedy. It is a Hollywood blockbuster, so the ending can’t be a complete downer, but Nolan doesn’t let us — or his characters — off easy. The movie opens eight years after the events of The Dark Knight (2008), on the anniversary of District Attorney Harvey Dent’s death. To create a hero for Gotham to rally behind, Batman took the fall for Dent’s murder, concealed the DA’s nefarious deeds and made him a martyr. These years on, the plan seems to have worked. Batman has disappeared and Gotham enjoys an unprecedented peace. Police Commissioner Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) knows the truth about Dent but stays quiet in the interest of keeping the peace.
Coincidental to all of this — wink — Bruce Wayne has become a recluse, divesting himself entirely of operations at Wayne Enterprises and skulking about his manor with a cane. Until a comely cat burglar (Anne Hathaway) cracks his safe, making off with his mother’s pearls and something even more valuable. This sets up some large-scale white-collar crime and lays a foundation for the hostile takeover of Gotham by masked horror-show Bane (Tom Hardy). Batman springs into action, but eight years off have softened him. Bane breaks his back and tosses him into a hellish prison pit on the far side of the world. This is pretty bleak stuff, and that’s what makes this the perfect conclusion to what may go down as the definitive movie series of the past 10 years. Nolan manages to convey real hurt and danger while serving up some of the most exhilarating action in cinema. The Dark Knight Rises contains moments of raw sadness that took me completely by surprise. It shows Batman as a deeply flawed hero and Bruce Wayne as a wounded, soul-sick man without direction. The plotlines explore themes of justice vs. revenge, the evils of fascism, appearance vs. reality and, finally, the fragile goodness of the human spirit. It’s the stuff of Greek tragedy, and Nolan (with his co-writer brother Jonathan) incorporates these ideas seamlessly into an epic action masterpiece that dwells in the gray area between good and evil. They even bring in some references to the Occupy movement and the Wall Street collapse/grift of 2008. Having said all of that, you will not like this movie if you didn’t like the preceding two. (I can’t imagine why that would be, but to each his own.) This is more of the same: impeccably detailed production design; rich, gorgeous cinematography; dead-on performances by great actors; perfect visual effects, etc. Particularly worthy of note is the work of Tom Hardy and Christian Bale. As Bane’s face is mostly obscured throughout, Hardy has to convey the character’s menace and charisma with eye movements, voice and physicality. There were a lot of question marks around this movie before its release about whether anybody could top Heath Ledger’s Joker in The Dark Knight. The answer is no, but Hardy knows better than to try. His Bane is a terrifying, complicated hulk, every inch the villain but possessed of a troubling glimmer of humanity. Bale, especially in his scenes with Michael Caine, does a shockingly vulnerable turn. He plumbs the depths of Bruce
Wayne’s cavernous despair, never letting us forget he’s a real person, despite the circumstances. Taken altogether, Nolan’s trilogy is a deceptively complex cultural document. The movies, beautifully crafted as they are, have a resonance that I think will outlast their aesthetic achievement. At the heart of one of the biggest blockbuster franchises in history is a careful, difficult commentary on the world as we know it. And that is an impressive feat. PG13. 164m. SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED makes a fitting, if unlikely, companion piece to Nolan’s Batman trilogy. Even though it comes from a different world in terms of production scale and storytelling, Safety is a uniquely early-21st century time capsule. It’s loaded with the sadness, inarticulate nostalgia and post-ironic earnestness that are rapidly defining this time. I hope to see more smart little movies like this soon, and lots of them. Aubrey Plaza (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Parks and Recreation) plays a depressed magazine intern on assignment to find a guy who’s supposedly got a time machine. Turns out he’s as weird and flawed as she is. He’s played with scruffy brilliance by Mark Duplass, who is rapidly climbing out of the mumblecore pigeonhole onto the top of the indie-media mountain. Safety is an imaginative, well-crafted little movie with a big heart and a firm grasp on its themes. I hope to see great things from writer Derek Connolly and director Colin Trevorrow. R. 86m.
THE WATCH. Four suburban guys form a neighborhood watch to escape their boring routine and — wouldn’t you know it? — end up having to protect the world from invading aliens. This comedy, cowritten by Seth Rogen, stars Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade. R. 100m. STEP UP REVOLUTION. The Step Up movies are like porn: The actors are awful but attractive, the plotlines are laughable, and viewers only care about the action sequences. Just substitute b-boy/hip-hop dancing for coitus and you’ve got a franchise. This fourth installment co-opts the flash-mob craze and the Occupy movement. PG13. 97m. The Arcata Theatre Lounge returns from a week off next Wednesday with another Sci-Fi Pint and Pizza Night. This time out the theme is “Moon Madness.” (I would have gone with “Lunar Lunacy,” but that’s just me.) First up is Missile to the Moon (1958), in which a scientist, his fiancé and a pair of escaped convicts travel
to (you guessed it) the moon, where they find an underground kingdom of scantily clad women, giant rock men and a spider the size of an Apollo space capsule. That’ll be followed by Rocket Ship X-M (1950), which claims to be “the screen’s first story of man’s conquest of space.” The all-ages fun starts at 6 p.m.
THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. It’s only been five years since the last Tobey Maguire/Sam Raimi installment, but director Mark Webb manages to give Spidey new dimension in this satisfying, if extraneous, reboot. PG13. 136m. BRAVE. Pixar’s stunning animation doesn’t disappoint, even if this tale of a precocious Scottish princess lacks the studio’s usual depth. PG. 93m. ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT. More prehistoric hijinks from Manny the mammoth, Diego the saber-tooth and Sid, the lisping sloth. PG. 94m. MAGIC MIKE. Channing Tatum stars as a male stripper/aspiring entrepreneur in director Steven Soderbergh’s gritty-yetflashy drama. R. 110m. MOONRISE KINGDOM. Wes Anderson’s trademarks abound — dollhousestyle set design, slow-mo walking shots, copious homages to the 1960s, etc. — but they never overwhelm the heart in this bittersweet chronicle of first love. PG13. 94m. SAVAGES. Oliver Stone brings his ham-fisted self-seriousness to this tale of ambitious weed dealers who get mixed up with a Mexican cartel and John Travolta’s crooked CIA agent. R. 130m. TED. This feature film debut from Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane, about a pothead Bostonian (Mark Wahlberg) and his sentient teddy bear, is crass, uproarious and surprisingly touching. R. 106m. TO ROME WITH LOVE. Woody Allen’s latest is a mess, a hodgepodge of pretty characters in a pretty European city and not much more. R. 112m. •

ASSESSOR’S PARCEL NO. 300-252-028 and 300-251-017 NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 707-443-0837 for information regarding the trustee’s sale and inquire as to the status of the foreclosure using the T.S. number assigned to this foreclosure shown on the first page of this notice. Information about postponements that are very
short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The unpaid balance and estimate of costs, expenses and advances as of July 16, 2012 is $54,130.89; said amount will increase until date of sale. The street address or other common designation, if any, of the real property described herein is purported to be: APNs 300-252-028 and 300-251-017. Sale is of the land only. Mobile home is not included in the sale. Directions may be obtained pursuant to a written request submitted to the Beneficiary. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. Dated: July 16, 2012 Beneficiary: Trueman E.

Diets for Losers? Part 2
By Barry Evans
ast week, I discussed the discouraging news about diets: 95 percent of the time, they don’t work in the long term. However, that still leaves 5 percent of people who succeed. This is how they do it, according to the National Weight Control Registry (http:// www.nwcr.ws/). • Consistent and gradual weight loss works better than rapid, short-term programs. And group support/behavior-modification systems, such as Weight Watchers, work better than individual programs. Online programs are increasingly popular — and don’t cost. Check out sparkpeople. com, fitday.com, and myfitnesspal.com. • Successful dieters balance the three macronutrient groups of carbs, fats and proteins. Imbalanced diets are mostly doomed in the long run, although they may show short-term results. Low-carb dieters, for instance, usually experience fast weight loss in the first few weeks — but that’s almost all water loss. Our bodies soon figure out what’s lacking and make it all-but impossible to resist returning to our natural balance. • The National Weight Control Registry reports that the majority of people who lost an average of 66 pounds and kept it off for more than five years consistently ate breakfast, weighed regularly, limited their TV viewing (under 10 hours a week) and exercised at least an hour a day. • Ninety-five percent of successful long-term dieters increased their daily physical activity, usually by walking more. It’s a bit more complicated than that, though. A six-year study at the Mayo Clinic found that not only was activity important, but inactivity by itself would add pounds. The study tracked a very select group of volunteers: They were overfed
by 10,00 calories a day and not allowed to exercise. Sure enough, many of them gained weight — but some didn’t. According to researcher Dr. Michael Jensen, “The people who didn’t gain weight were unconsciously moving around more. On average, the subjects who gained weight sat two hours more per day than those who hadn’t.” Turned out, the ones who maintained their weight were simply moving more: taking the stairs, walking the dog, washing dishes, cleaning the house, weeding. Not sitting. In this context, watching television is a killer. Literally. According to a study published in the American Heart Association journal Circulation in which 8,800 Aussies were tracked, each additional hour per day spent in front of the TV increased the risk of dying from heart disease by 18 percent and the overall risk of death by 11 percent. According to principal investigator Dr. David Dunstan of Melbourne’s Monash University, “Prolonged watching of television equals a lot of sitting, which invariably means there’s an absence of muscle movement.” Sitting, you’re burning a calorie per minute, which is half what you expend standing and one third of your walking calorie output. The word diet comes from Greek diaita, that is, “way of living.” Our “I want it yesterday” society has changed the meaning into a quick-fix solution for a growing problem (so to speak). Maybe it’s time to return to the original sense of the word. Of course, the Greeks didn’t have American Idol to watch every week, either. l Barry Evans (barryevans9@yahoo. com) is addicted to his $14 pedometer, which is why you’ll see him walking on the boardwalk at 11.30 pm — gotta get those 10,000 steps a day!
