The Jacoby Creek Land Trust holds several conservation and agricultural easements on private property around Humboldt Bay for scientific, educational or other values. “The Trust owns a couple of hundred acres within the Jacoby Creek watershed,” says Susan Ornelas, the current JCLT Executive Director. “Each year, at the Kokte Ranch, we raise turkeys, practice rotational cattle grazing and the Humboldt Wildlife Care Center is housed here, too. We are open to the public and encourage individuals, groups and schools to visit.” The members of the Board of Directors live in the area, and as Susan says, “We all shop at Murphy’s!” Board o f Directors (Pictured Left to R ight) Lucien E Chuck Powell, ddisford, Ralph Andy Waxman Faust, , Cheryl Dillin Susan Ornelas gham, Shelley .

I looked at the cover, and started laughing. “The fine art and terrifying task of carrying groceries from market to home” (Oct. 11). You must have very little to write about if you are doing cover stories about shopping bags. In all my years of going to the grocery, I don’t think I’ve ever once been “terrified.” Not even by rising prices. Maybe you should’ve held this one until your Halloween issue! I’m sure that the article will be interesting and insightful, but not as edgy as you’re trying to make it. Russ Cole, Arcata Interview Capleton Editor: I see a lot of controversy, shows canceled and a lot of talk about Capleton (“Pressure Drop,” Oct. 11) but what comes to mind is, did these persons making these comments and articles actually sit down with Capleton and do an interview to find out what is what? Fact finding is really important and to place a judgment on a person without actually speaking with him one on one to find out what really took place is missing what journalism is about. All the information in your article is truly hearsay and nothing factual. Why don’t you call Capleton’s management and get a true story of the accounting of the situation and the song and what it means? Would be interesting to hear what the artist has to say!!! Nikii Davis, Lake Oswego, Ore. Developer Schemes Editor: “A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it is but a prologue to farce or tragedy or perhaps both.” (James Madison, father of the U.S. Constitution). In this new “Citizen’s United” era, our communities are banned from knowing who was behind the numerous phony organizations that endorsed Rex Bohn last May. Bohn failed to report the occupations of his top donors, many with well-known ties to the development community. Were they responsible? (“Picking a Bohn,” NCJ, Blogthing, June 4).

Only once in living memory has the political dominance by the local development community been officially exposed (“Interested Parties,” NCJ, Oct. 14, 2010). With a minority of voters participating, developers have been free to harvest our infrastructure like an entitlement program, building our county and cities into moratoriums with homes beyond the reach of 75 percent of local incomes, and beyond the infrastructure capacity of roads, sewers and emergency services. Everyone else is required to pay the full consequences of sprawl; skyrocketing sewer bills; record fatalities of pedestrians, cyclists and motorists; increased poverty, crime, drug abuse and homelessness from the chronic lack of “A little before you go to sleep, read something that is exquisite.” -- Erasmus Used Books • New Books Special orders welcome for new books! 402 2nd Street • Corner of 2nd & E • Old Town, Eureka • 445-1344 affordable housing, and further delays to updating our 1980s General Plan. The local transfer of public wealth to the wealthy is the sad equivalent of our nation’s corporate bailouts, job exports and offshore tax havens. “Joe” Bonino claims he is running against Linda Atkins because “without two candidates, you have Russia” (“Watching Ward Two,” Oct. 11). However, with five like-minded Eureka city council members, we’d have the product of a tyranny forewarned by this nation’s founders. George Clark, Eureka Editor: I live in the Eureka City Council district where Linda Atkins, the incumbent, is running for office and one of her opponents is Joe Bonino. In the beginning he said he was running because he didn’t think anyone should run unopposed. Might that be the first lie Joe Bonino tells us? I think he is running because his buddy Rex Bohn (the county supervisor in my district) asked him to and has contributed generously to his candidacy. Interestingly, Bonino’s signs so resemble Bohn’s. Bonino’s other major contributors are developers including Kramer Investment Corp. And Bohn is the supervisor who at the last minute ran out and bought a house when he found out the office he wanted was outside the limits of his home. Wow! I wonder how many of us can afford to do that? Now I’m not saying Rex Bohn did anything illegal. A member of the board of supervisors can legally contribute to the candidacy of a person running for city council. It seems like it is stacking the deck a bit, but it isn’t illegal. And I’m not saying Rex Bohn hasn’t done nice things in this community. But his generosity seems a bit over the top for “nice.” Eda Bachrach, Eureka Just Label It! Editor: Thank you for the informative piece “The $38 Million Label” (Oct. 11). Until recently, I did not worry about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in my food, but I have been very concerned for younger people having reproductive issues down the road with too many pesticides inside the seeds or the engineering that makes the foods “Roundup ready.” After consulting a naturopathic doctor about some issues, and getting my blood and saliva testing results, I found out I have allergies to so many foods that I never had allergies to before.

How am I going to know what is genetically engineered if it is not labeled? Why do so many other countries require labeling and we don’t? I don’t understand what they are trying to hide with pumping $38 million into lies and false information to sway people not to vote Yes on Prop 37. Ingredients are essential to me, and so are the labels listing fat, sodium, trans fat, saturated fat, carbs, sugar, calcium, and other vitamins to keep a balance in my diet. This is not going to affect restaurants, alcohol, dairy or meat, among other exceptions. It is a step in the right direction. If these Monsanto and other people are so proud of their GMO foods, why not put labels on it? My university professor friend who spends half the year in Europe educating people said Europeans call genetically modified foods “Frankenfoods.” Are we the human test tube for this latest scientific experiment like we are for the pharmaceutical industry? For the younger folks and myself, I am voting Yes on Prop 37 to label genetically engineered foods. Trisha Lotus, Eureka Editor: Proposed legislation to label genetically engineered foods (aka GMOs) has failed in 19 states. In at least two states, Vermont and Connecticut, legislation failed immediately after Monsanto threatened to sue these states should a labeling requirement become law. The FDA does not consider the method of production, including genetic modification, to be meaningful information that is required to be on product labeling unless the modification results in a significant material change in the food product. As Michael Pollan points out, “thanks to the biotech industry’s own lobbying prowess, there is no federal regulation on labeling, only an informal ruling, and … nothing to pre-empt.” Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) introduced an amendment to the 2013 farm bill that would give states the right to require labels on food products that are genetically engineered. It also failed. Subsequently, the biotech industry introduced the 2013 Agriculture Appropriations Bill rider, authored by Congressman Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), chairman For Suzanne I will be there for you waiting in the place between worlds as night ended a morning you never saw the sirens echoed through Freshwater valley three times the red lights flashed wailing sensed your pain as body separated from soul saw the sobbing tears at your memorial hope there’s reason beyond the madness as my drum keeps your heartbeat and grieving pulls your people together what joy to have you in keeping if only for a while… — Mark Stratman of the Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and related agencies. Known as the “farmer assurance provision” (Section 733), it specifically outlines that the secretary of agriculture will be required, upon request, to “immediately” grant temporary approval or deregulation of a GM crop, even if that crop’s safety is in question or under review. Which brings us back to consumers’ right to know what’s in our food and how it is produced. U.S. consumers are demanding this fundamental information on food labels, information that is already being provided to most of the world’s population. Obviously the ballot initiative process remains the only way for this to happen. Our governments and legislators have failed us. Similar ballot initiative efforts are under way in several other states. Let Californians lead. Vote “Yes” on Prop 37. Peggy Leviton, McKinleyville Bah, Cat Lover Editor: I’m writing in regards to Dev Richard’s review of the film Frankenweenie (“Filmland,” Oct. 11). I was deeply touched by the film and I highly recommend it to anyone who has ever loved a dog. Perhaps Dev is more of a cat fan. And to those of you who think Tim Burton’s last good movie was Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure, you’re in for a treat/mindfuck. Frankenweenie has soul. Rebecca Holden, Bayside Grow On! Editor: Rather than penalize local, successful entrepreneurs by jacking their utility rates, killing our economy in the process, Arcata should support local businesses (“The Grow Tax,” Oct. 4). Create a solar panel farm in the bottoms to supply needed electricity to area businesses. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Let’s encourage all the people, locals and others, who are helping to make this economic season a successful one for all of Humboldt County. “Hisss” to those who bring musicians with hate songs to Humboldt County (“Pressure Drop,” Oct. 11). “Bravo!” to those who stand against them. And please vote. While I agree with the ideals of the Green Party (“Jolly Greens,” Mailbox, Oct. 11), after nearly 20 years they have failed to build a politically significant grassroots movement. Energy — and votes — are better spent on strengthening and improving the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party is the only entity that stands between corporations that ruthlessly pillage the economy, the environment and us. Fhyre Phoenix, Arcata Vote for Schools Editor: As a retired teacher who understands the significant role of public schools, I wish to commend the Journal and Heidi Walters for her article comparing Propositions 30 and 38 (“Propping up Schools,” Oct. 4). Not only did Ms. Walters do a good job of describing how each would assist schools in improving their drastic financial situations and the restrictions of each proposal; she made clear what the impact of the deferral of payments to the schools has been and how dire the conditions of our schools will be were neither proposition to pass. Another point that may be obvious but needs to be stated and stressed is that each cut to school staff also increased the unemployment in our area. That had a negative impact on the economic status of our county businesses, families and children. The summary chart of ballot recommendations for the propositions was clear and informative. It is interesting that all but three of the organizations (the Libertarian Party, the Republican Party and the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association) made positive recommendations for Prop. 30. Readers should know that both associations of retired teachers in California (California Retired Teachers Association and the California Teachers Association, Retired) do enthusiastically support and recommend Prop. 30 as a strong proposition that would improve the outlook for California schools. It would end the state’s deferral of funds that rightfully were to be spent on our schools. We know that our schools, our children and our future depend on improving the funding situation for public education in California without further delay. CalRTA also recognizes that there is merit in Prop. 38, because any increase of funding would be better than none at all. Diana Berliner, Eureka Fixing Prisons? Editor: I was horrified to read the article about the state of the California prison system (“To Redeem a Felon,” Sept. 27) and somewhat heartened about the process of “realignment” that is going on now as a first step to try to relieve the overcrowding. Even though I knew about the state of prisons in our country/state, to read the statistics is staggering. We have been dealing with social problems by putting people in prison in an environment that is not only not rehabilitative but outright toxic and helps to harden people already struggling with major individual and societal problems. To read of private prisons is chilling. It’s not surprising that this system has gone the way of our health care, food, educational arenas and so many other areas of need. Making commodities out of everything causes the breakdown of that system. This shows how broken our society is that we would allow someone to make a business of running a prison (or an illness or a war or … ). Engaging Humboldt’s citizens in this “realignment” process is the way to go. Let us know how we can get involved in the support of this effort so that we participate in making our communities safer and support all citizens. Thank you to those in corrections, law enforcement, public defender, local businesses and social services that are collaborating on this. Maybe if we rethink our priorities as a county, state and nation we won’t have to wait for a crisis to deal more effectively and humanely with an issue. Lynn Kerman, Myrtletown Talk to us.

It fell on the huge, flattened disc of the world in front of the Fisherman’s Terminal. It fell on Old Town Carriage Co.’s Marty L’Herault, who was in the adjacent dirt lot hitching gentle Barney, a dappled-gray draft horse, to the gold-trimmed maroon-and-black carriage with its lover’s heart rear window. It was so light, the rain, you could barely feel it, and warm for mid-October. L’Herault groomed Barney’s shoulders and neck, attached the poop bag behind his rump, offered him a carrot, then swung up into the driver’s seat. He nudged Barney into the 3 mph pace that, together with L’Herault’s history lessons, has lulled many a tourist, no doubt, into a dreamy half-state between Eureka-now and Eureka-then. The eyes and ears disregard the cars and focus instead on the clopping hooves, the stories, the carriageframed visions of Victorian-era architecture. That structure there? The city’s first commercial building. This one on the corner, the restaurant? A saloon, once, with a “single ladies boarding house” on the second floor. Clip-clop, clip-clop, clip-clop, round the corner onto F Street. Nearing the stop sign at Second Street, L’Herault tugged lightly on the reins, nudging the horse into a perfect nose-first parallelparking maneuver. Soon, after setting up his sign advertising carriage rides, he would settle inside the dark interior, plinking away on his black ukulele, reading the paper or tapping at his smart phone. In one world and another, all at once. It’s easy to imagine that Marty L’Herault and his horse-drawn carriage would be offering this relatively cheap time travel forever — sometimes with Barney in the carriage braces, other times with Buster. But come next January, he plans to slip from this North Coast backwater into another world entirely — New York or maybe Chicago. He’s hanging up the harness and dapper driving gear and putting the Old Town Carriage Co. up for sale. Why, why would he strand us here in modern-day Eureka? Well, partly, it’s because he wants to be closer to his daughter, Kim, who is going to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. “And I’m re-starting, after a brief 25-year hiatus, my acting career,” he said. L’Herault, who’s 58 and has a theater degree, has had a come-and-go relationship with Humboldt since 1979, when his brother Mitch, a Navy man stationed in Ferndale, lured him here. He managed 8 North Coast Journal • Thursday, Oct. 18, 2012 • northcoastjournal.com "That horse represents a very, very large energy force," says Marty L'Herault about the beast who pulls his Old Town carriage. "When you see that horse and carriage walk by, that's something that can't be ignored." Photo by Heidi Walters the old Tomaso’s restaurant in Old Town, acted in local plays and sang in a band. Then he moved to New York to launch his starving-artist life, acting, waiting tables and driving a horse-drawn carriage in Central Park. “I thought that was the coolest thing in the world,” L’Herault said. “It was romantic. It was theatrical. It was historical.” The work felt like a calling. “One morning — it was a Sunday morning, really quiet — I’m hooking up the horse to the carriage, and it’s quiet, really quiet,” he said. “And, I don’t know, I don’t want to sound weird, but this feeling came over me, and it seemed like I’d always done this, forever, almost in another lifetime. I felt, ‘This is what I should be doing.’” Years later, another brother researching family history found their great-great grandfather had owned a horse-andcarriage business in Ireland. “We all think we make our choices in life, but sometimes you wonder if you’re hardwired into what you’re going to do,” L’Herault said. After New York, L’Herault and his now ex-wife, Michele (they divorced earlier this year), ran a carriage company in Humboldt from 1989 to 1995, then sold it for another sojourn back East before L’Herault returned in 2009 to set up shop anew. Now he hopes to sell the business for $32,000 for the whole shebang: horses, trailer, truck, carriage, harness and other gear, plus training and consultation during the transition. If no one buys it by next January, he’ll sell it off piece by piece. He’s already auditioned in New York for a Broadway show, and he’ll be out of here, pulled by his original calling. Can a man have two callings? Perhaps, in another time, he also had an ancestor who acted. l Proposition Primer By Carrie Peyton Dahlberg firstname.lastname@example.org S E shifts some sales tax money from state to counties.

He is not here to work on his tan. “My primary purpose is to meditate,” says the gentle Tutuska. “The sun serves as a jump start to the light within.” You understand, don’t you? The light glowing in the closed eyelids? “And once you find the light within, that’s all you have to do. That’s where your social questions get answered. That’s where all your questions get answered. And that’s a place of true healing.” But why this place, this wall? Well, says he, when the wind is blowing off the water, this is the warmest spot. Shop owners and workers in Old Town remembered Tutuska fondly on Monday, telling stories of his thoughtfulness and spirit. His cremation is being handled by Humboldt Cremation and Funeral Service. Update: His friends are planning a memorial for 11 a.m. Nov. 2 at Clarke Plaza, on E Street right across from the museum. COURTS, LAW, MARIJUANA / BY RYAN BURNS / OCT. 15, 1:41 P.M. SoCal Dispensary Owner Could Face Life in Prison That’s correct: A cannabis dispensary owner could wind up serving the kind of prison term that’s typically reserved for society’s most heinous and violent criminals. Aaron Sandusky was operating three medical marijuana dispensaries in compliance with state law, but over the weekend a federal jury convicted him of a handful of drug-related charges that carry a minimum sentence of 10 years to life in prison, according to the L.A. Weekly. Last October, Sandusky received threatening letters from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, as did many other dispensaries across the state, as the Journal noted at the time. Local dispensary owners and their landlords have “Now is a great time to buy a house,” a Realtor said every single day since the dawn of Realtors. And until The Great American Housing Bubble, they were usually right. Houses were good investments … until Wall Street started using them as tokens in its rigged casino games. The housing market has been out of whack for roughly a decade now (see chart below), but the latest numbers from the Humboldt Association of Realtors suggest that prices are settling back down to historical norms. And so, like broken clocks that waited patiently for the return of the hour hand, Realtors may once again be correct: Now just might be a great time to buy a house. Yesterday, the Humboldt Association of Realtors released its countywide stats for August home sales. Here’s where we stand: The median price of homes sold in Humboldt County was $220,390, which is where they seem to have plateaued. (The median has been within $20,000 of that mark for almost a year now.) Combine that value with a median household income of $45,409, plus a record-low mortgage rate of just 3.7 percent, and you get the most affordable monthly house payments in more than a decade. Let’s get specific: Say you purchased this hypothetical median-priced home in August, with the standard 20 percent down. Your monthly payment, including principal, interest, taxes and insurance, would be $1,048.45. And say that, by some remarkable coincidence, your household also happened to earn the county’s median household income. Your mortgage payments would eat up 28 percent of your income. When’s the last time house payments took such a small bite of local incomes? Go ahead and guess; we’ll wait. It was April 1999 — 13 years and four months ago. Between then and now, the local bubble peaked (in March 2006) with median-priced home selling for $349,500. The monthly payment on that home would have consumed more than two-thirds (67 percent) of the county’s median income. If you bought a house back then, condolences. But the rest of us can be grateful 325,000 300,000 275,000 250,000 225,000 200,000 that the long free fall has brought prices back down to earth. In case you’re curious, here are the median August home prices for Eureka, Arcata, Fortuna and McKinleyville. And just so you can revel at how far out of whack we got, we’ve also included the high-water mark for each town: Eureka — $176,100 (high — $345,000 in Feb. 2006) Arcata — $235,000 (high — $608,000 in April 2006) Fortuna — $201,500 (high — $465,000 in Oct. 2007) McKinleyville — $230,000 (high — $418,000 in April 2007) It should be noted that individual markets have pretty small sample sizes from month to month, so the highs can be skewed dramatically by the sale of one or two very expensive homes. Still, we’re nowhere near these levels anymore. ACTIVISM, REGGAE / BY ANDREW GOFF / OCT. 11, 2:47 P.M.

His latest rampage was captured by a television crew right here in Humboldt County, where they’d come to film a Ghost Hunters-type reality show. The harrowing footage has been cobbled together into a feature film. (You can behold the bloodcurdling trailer below.)

But that’s probably because they weren’t exposed to the full online furor sparked by Obama’s continuation of his predecessor’s overreaching approach to national security, such as signing the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, which allows the indefinite detention of those — even U.S. citizens — accused of supporting terrorism. We’ll never know how this year’s election would be different if the corporate media adequately covered the NDAA’s indefinite detention clause and many other recent attacks on civil liberties. What we can do is support independent media sources that do cover these stories. That’s where Project Censored comes in. Project Censored has been documenting inadequate media coverage of crucial stories since it began in 1967 at Sonoma State University. Each year, the group considers hundreds of news stories submitted by readers, evaluating their merits. Students search Lexis Nexis and other databases to see if the stories were underreported, and if so, the stories are fact-checked by professors and experts in relevant fields. A panel of academics and journalists chooses the Top 25 stories and rates their significance. The project maintains a vast online database of underreported news stories that it has “validated” and publishes them in an annual book. Censored 2013: Dispatches from the Media Revolution will be released Oct. 30. For the second year in row, Project Censored has grouped the Top 25 list into topical “clusters.” This year, categories include “human cost of war and violence” and “environment and health.” Project Censored Director Mickey Huff told us the idea was to show how various undercovered stories fit together into an alternative narrative, not to say that one story was more censored than another. “The problem when we had just the list was that it did imply a ranking,” Huff said. “It takes away from how there tends to be a pattern to the types of stories they don’t cover or underreport.” In May, while Project Censored was working on the list, another 2012 list was issued: the Fortune 500 list of the biggest corporations, whose influence peppers the Project Censored list in a variety of ways. Consider this year’s top Fortune 500 company: ExxonMobil. The oil company pollutes everywhere it goes, yet most stories about its environmental devastation go underreported. Weapons manufacturers Lockheed Martin (58 on the Fortune list), General Dynamics (92), and Raytheon (117) are tied into stories about U.S. prisoners in slavery conditions manufacturing parts for their weapons and the underreported war crimes in Afghanistan and Libya. These powerful corporations work together more than most people think. In the chapter exploring the “Global 1 Percent,” writers Peter Philips and Kimberly Soeiro explain how a small number of well-connected people control the majority of the world’s wealth. In it, they use Censored story number six, “Small network of corporations run the global economy,” to describe how a network of transnational corporations are deeply interconnected, with 147 of them controlling 40 percent of the global economy’s total wealth. For example, Philips and Soeiro write that in one such company, BlackRock Inc., “The eighteen members of the board of directors are connected to a significant part of the world’s core financial assets. Their decisions can change empires, destroy currencies, and impoverish millions.” Another cluster of stories, “women and gender, race and ethnicity,” notes a pattern of underreporting stories that affect a range of marginalized groups. This broad category includes only three articles, and none are listed in the top 10. The stories reveal mistreatment of Palestinian women in Israeli prisons, including being denied medical care and shackled during childbirth, and the rape and sexual assault of women soldiers in the U.S. military. The third story in the category concerns an Alabama anti-immigration bill, HB56, that caused immigrants to flee Alabama in such numbers that farmers felt a dire need to “help farms fill the gap and find sufficient labor.” So the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries approached the state’s Department of Corrections about making a deal for prisoners to replace the fleeing farm workers. But with revolutionary unrest around the world, and the rise of a mass movement that connects disparate issues together into a simple, powerful class analysis — the 99 percent versus the 1 percent paradigm popularized by Occupy Wall Street — this year’s Project Censored offers an element of hope. It’s not easy to succeed at projects that resist corporate dominance, and when it does happen, the corporate media is sometimes reluctant to cover it. Number seven on the Top 25 list is the story of how the United Nations designated 2012 the International Year of the Cooperative, recognizing the rapid growth of co-op businesses: organizations that are part-owned by all members and whose revenue is shared equitably among members. One billion people worldwide now work in co- ops. The Year of the Cooperative is not the only goodnews story discussed by Project Censored this year. In Chapter 4, Yes! Magazine‘s Sarah Van Gelder lists “12 ways the Occupy movement and other major trends have offered a foundation for a transformative future.” They include a renewed sense of “political self-respect” and fervor to organize in the United States, debunking of economic myths such as the “American dream,” and the blossoming of economic alternatives such as community land trusts, time banking, and micro-energy installations. They also include results achieved from pressure on government, like the delay of the Keystone Pipeline project, widespread efforts to override the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling, the removal of dams in Washington state after decades of campaigning by Native American and environmental activists, and the enactment of single-payer healthcare in Vermont. As Dr. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed writes in the book’s foreword, “The majority of people now hold views about Western governments and the nature of power that would have made them social pariahs 10 or 20 years ago.” Citing polls from the corporate media, Mosaddeq writes: “The majority are now skeptical of the Iraq War; the majority want an end to U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan; the majority resent the banks and financial sector, and blame them for the financial crisis; most people are now aware of environmental issues, more than ever before, and despite denialist confusion promulgated by fossil fuel industries, the majority in the United States and Britain are deeply concerned about global warming; most people are wary of conventional party politics and disillusioned with the mainstream parliamentary system.” In short, he writes, “There has been a massive popular shift in public opinion toward a progressive critique of the current political economic system.” And ultimately, it’s the public — not the president and not the corporations — that will determine the future. There may be hope after all. Here’s Project Censored’s Top 10 list for 2013: 1. Signs of an emerging police state President George W. Bush is remembered for his role in curbing civil liberties in the name of his “war on terror.” But it’s President Obama who signed the 2012 NDAA, including its clause allowing for indefinite detention without trial for terrorism suspects. Obama promised that “my administration will interpret them to avoid the constitutional conflict” — leaving us prey to the whims of future administrations that may interpret them otherwise. Journalist Chris Hedges, along with co-plaintiffs including Noam Chomsky and Daniel Ellsberg, won a case challenging the NDAA’s indefinite detention clause on Sept. 1, when a federal judge blocked its enforcement. But her ruling was overturned on Oct. 3, so the clause is back. Another law of concern is the National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order that Obama issued in March 2012. That order authorizes the president, “in the event of a potential threat to the security of the United States, to take actions necessary to ensure the availability of adequate resources and production capability, including services and critical technology, for national defense requirements.” The president is to be advised on this course of action by “the National Security Council and Homeland Security Council, in conjunction with the National Economic Council.” 2. Oceans in peril Big banks aren’t the only entities that our country has deemed “too big to fail.” But our oceans won’t be getting a bailout anytime soon, and their collapse could compromise life itself. In a haunting article highlighted by Project Censored, Mother Jones reporter Julia Whitty paints a tenuous seascape — overfished, acidified, warming — and describes how the destruction of the ocean’s complex ecocontinued on next page northcoastjournal.com • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, OCT. 18, 2012 13 continued from previous page systems jeopardizes the entire planet, not just the 70 percent that is water. Whitty compares ocean acidification, caused by global warming, to acidification that was one of the causes of the “Great Dying,” a mass extinction 252 million years ago. Life on earth took 30 million years to recover. In a more hopeful story, a study of 14 protected and 18 non-protected ecosystems in the Mediterranean Sea showed dangerous levels of biomass depletion. But it also showed that the marine reserves were well-enforced, with five to 10 times larger fish populations than in unprotected areas. This encourages establishment and maintenance of more reserves. 3. Fukushima information blackout A plume of toxic fallout floated from Japan after the tragic Fukushima nuclear disaster on March 11, 2011. Full information about what descended where has been hard to come by, and fears remain about the extent of health risks. Yet the Project Censored system shows its weaknesses in this Top 10 pick. Spread over more than 20 universities, researched by students and overseen by sometimes-overwhelmed academics, the system can be vulnerable to knee-jerk reactions and rushed edits. In retrospect, says Project Censored Director Huff, the point he really wanted to make with this chapter was that more needs to be learned about Fukushima’s aftermath — but, sadly, that’s not all the chapter says. It prominently summarizes a study that Huff now acknowledges is “squirrely at best” and then makes things even worse by exaggerating and misstating the study’s claims. Here’s what happened: A pair of researchers looked at deaths in 122 U.S. cities in the 14 weeks after Fukushima, the 14 weeks before, and the same time periods from the previous year. Then, without inquiring about what normal yearto-year variations might be, they extrapolated a death rate for the entire U.S. — nearly 14,000 more deaths post-Fukushima, including 822 infants — and they pointedly asked if radiation might have caused them. The work is fraught with so many absurdities that Scientific American took it apart in a couple of devastating blogs, amd most mainstream media didn’t cover it — which appears to have gotten someone’s “censored” taste buds salivating. By the time the study by Joseph Mangano and Jeanette Sherman made it into Project Censored’s book, it was dramatically recast — the link to Fukushima was no longer a question, but proven, and the dead were “mostly infants” in Washington state, not the study’s 822 infants nationwide. The Fukushima chapter goes on to document ways that Japanese and American officials downplayed or lied about Fukushima fallout, and Huff says he remains proud of that work. He said he plans to correct this chapter’s errors on the Project Censored website. 4. FBI agents responsible for terrorist plots Here is Project Censored back to one of the things it does best — cast light on well-researched, well-documented explo- rations of abuses of power. We know that FBI agents go into communities such as mosques, both undercover and in the guise of building relationships, quietly gathering information about individuals. This is part of an approach to finding what the FBI now considers the most likely kind of terrorists, “lone wolves.” Its strategy: “seeking to identify those disgruntled few who might participate in a plot given the means and the opportunity. And then, in case after case, the government provides the plot, the means, and the opportunity,” writes Mother Jones journalist Trevor Aaronsen. The publication, along with the Investigative Reporting Program at the University of California-Berkeley, examined the results of this strategy, 508 cases classified as terrorism-related that have come before the U.S. Department of Justice since the 9/11 terrorist attacks of 2001. In 243 of these cases, an informant was involved; in 49 cases, an informant actually led the plot. And “with three exceptions, all of the high-profile domestic terror plots of the last decade were actually FBI stings.” 5. Federal Reserve loaned trillions to major banks The Federal Reserve, the United State’s quasi-private central bank, was audited for the first time in its history this year. The audit report states, “From late 2007 through mid-2010, Reserve Banks provided more than a trillion dollars … in emergency loans to the financial sector Crystal Springs Bottled Water Local Family Owned & Operated Since 1967 Artesian Water Bottled On Site Delivered to Home or Ofﬁce Now it’s even MORE affordable! ONE MONTH FREE (for new customers) Plus to address strains in credit markets and to avert failures of individual institutions believed to be a threat to the stability of the financial system.” These loans had significantly lower interest and fewer conditions than the high-profile TARP bailouts, and were rife with conflicts of internet. Some examples: the CEO of JP Morgan Chase served as a board member of the New York Federal Reserve at the same time that his bank received more than $390 billion in financial assistance from the Fed. William Dudley, who is now the New York Federal Reserve president, was granted a conflict of interest waiver to let him keep investments in AIG and General Electric at the same time the companies were given bailout funds. The audit was restricted to Federal Reserve lending during the financial crisis. On July 25, 2012, a bill to audit the Fed again, with fewer limitations, authored by Rep. Ron Paul, passed the House of Representatives. HR459 is expected to die in the Senate, but the movement behind Paul and his calls to hold the Fed accountable, or abolish it altogether, seem to be growing.

Small network of corporations run the global economy Reporting on a study by researchers from the Swiss Federal Institute in Zurich didn’t make the rounds nearly enough, according to Censored 2013. The researchers found that, of 43,060 transnational companies, 147 control 40 percent of total global wealth.

Some have criticized the study, saying control of assets doesn’t equate to ownership. True, but as we clearly saw in the 2008 financial collapse, corporations are capable of mismanaging assets in their control to the detriment of their actual owners. And a largely unregulated super entity like this is vulnerable to global collapse. 7. The International Year of the Cooperative Can something really be censored when it’s straight from the United Nations? According to Project Censored evaluators, the corporate media underreported the U.N. declaring 2012 to be the International Year of the Cooperative, based on the coop business model’s stunning growth. The U.N. found that, in 2012, one billion people worldwide are coop member-owners, or one in five adults over the age of 15. The largest is Spain’s Mondragon Corp., with more than 80,000 member-owners. The U.N. predicts that by 2025, worker-owned coops will be the world’s fastest growing business model. Worker-owned cooperatives provide for equitable distribution of wealth, genuine connection to the workplace, and, just maybe, a brighter future for our planet. 8. NATO war crimes in Libya In January 2012, the BBC “revealed” how British Special Forces agents joined and “blended in” with rebels in Libya to help topple dictator Muammar Gadaffi, a story that alternative media sources had reported a year earlier. NATO admits to bombing a pipe factory in the Libyan city of Brega that was key to the water supply system that brought tap water to 70 percent of Libyans, saying that Gadaffi was storing weapons in the factory. In Censored 2013, writer James F. Tracy makes the point that historical relations between the U.S. and Libya were left out of mainstream news coverage of the NATO campaign. Tracy adds, “Background knowledge and historical context confirming Al-Qaeda and Western involvement in the destabilization of the Gadaffi regime are also essential for making sense of corporate news narratives depicting the Libyan operation as a popular ‘uprising.’” 9. Prison slavery in the U.S. On its website, the UNICOR manufacturing corporation proudly proclaims that its products are “made in America.” That’s true, but they’re made in places where standard labor laws don’t apply, with workers often paid just 23 cents an hour to be exposed to toxic materials with no legal recourse. These places are U.S. prisons. Slavery conditions in prisons aren’t exactly news. It’s literally written into the Constitution; the 16 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, OCT. 18, 2012 • northcoastjournal.com 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery, outlaws “slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted.” But the article highlighted by Project Censored this year reveals the current state of prison slavery industries and their ties to war. The majority of products manufactured by inmates are contracted to the Department of Defense. Inmates make complex parts for missile systems, battleship antiaircraft guns and landmine sweepers, as well as night-vision goggles, body armor and camouflage uniforms. Of course, this is happening in the context of record high imprisonment in the United States, where grossly disproportionate numbers of African Americans and Latinos are imprisoned and, in some states, can’t vote even after they’re freed. As psychologist Elliot D. Cohen puts it in this year’s book: “This system of slavery, like that which existed in this country before the Civil War, is also racist, as more than 60 percent of US prisoners are people of color.” 10. HR 347 criminalizes protest HR 347, sometimes called the “criminalizing protest” or “anti-Occupy” bill, made some headlines. But concerned lawyers and some politically active Americans worry that it could have disastrous effects for the First Amendment right to protest. Officially called the Federal Restricted Grounds Improvement Act, the law makes it a felony to “knowingly” enter a zone restricted under the law, or engage in “disorderly or disruptive” conduct in or near the zones. The restricted zones include anywhere the Secret Service may be — places such as the White House, areas hosting events deemed “National Special Security Events,” or anywhere visited by the president, vice president and their immediate families; former presidents, vice presidents and certain family members; certain foreign dignitaries; major presidential and vice presidential candidates (within 120 days of an election); and other individuals as designated by a presidential executive order. These people could be anywhere, and NSSEs have notoriously included the Democratic and Republican National Conventions, Super Bowls and the Academy Awards. So far, it seems the only time HR 347 has kicked in is with George Clooney’s high-profile arrest outside the Sudanese embassy. Clooney ultimately was not detained without trial — information that would be almost impossible to censor — but what about the rest of us who exist outside of the mainstream media’s spotlight? ● Yael Chanoff wrote this article for the San Francisco Bay Guardian, and North Coast Journal Editor Carrie Peyton Dahlberg contributed to the reporting on censored story No. 3.

The winners of a drawing held that day took the stage and unleashed a mighty roar, dark soaring chords shot through with feedback kissing the gray sky. The psych-rock noise machine White Manna was in fine form. The band first came together 4½ years ago when guitarist/founder David Johnson returned to Humboldt after a sojourn in L.A. The line-up has been somewhat variable. “Johnny Webb has been with the band for four years; he started on keyboards but now plays bass. Tavan Anderson, the drummer, joined three years ago. It’s been a core with us three and different guitarists and keyboard players,” said Johnson, calling from his home in Manila. Anthony Taibi filled the second guitar slot at the fair and current keyboardist, Dario Marcello, was absent. This summer the band released an eponymous LP for Portland label Holy Mountain (see review page 30). Another record is in the works at Piet Dalmolen’s Universal Balance Studios, with what Johnson said is a similar approach. “It’s a little darker now, but it’s the same spacy, freak-out rock ‘n’ roll. We practiced last night and probably played for 40 minutes without stopping or talking, and it wasn’t any song, just improvised.” Not that they don’t do “songs,” but sometimes, said Johnson, “We just close our eyes and see what happens.” Tuesday White Manna launches a brief West Coast tour at The Shanty with Midday Veil, a kraut-rock/psych band from Seattle with David Golightly on synths and Emily Pothast out front on “vocals etc.” Former local Ethan Miller’s band Howlin Rain headlines with bong rock and liquor store soul tunes from its new album, The Russian Wilds. The Shanty isn’t a big room — show up early to get in. Then when the music starts, close your eyes and see what happens. Another former local, Jerry Joseph, returns to Humboldt Brews Thursday with his trio The Jackmormons. Joseph left Arcata a long time ago — in the ’80s — he’s never stopped writing deep, powerful songs. You’ll find some of his best on his new double-LP, Happy Book. Basstoberfest, a “basstacular” EDM show Friday at the Mateel assembled by occasional Journal contributor Travis Turner, features Miles “Womp Womp Wednesday” PsyFi, DJ Dirtbag (aka Tim Marsh) playing with guest MC Kelley Mak, plus local producers Cacao and Piper and live visionary art by Roman Villagrana. All proceeds go directly to KMUD to help pay for a tower upgrade that, according to KMUD, “went waaaaay over budget. (It was the rain’s fault, again.)” When String Cheese Incident percussionists Michael Travis and Jason Hann started up a loopy electronic side 20 North Coast Journal • Thursday, Oct. 18, 2012 • northcoastjournal.com project a few years back, they called it “End of Time Observatory.” At this point the duo playing live electrojams is simply EOTO. The current “Lotus Experience” tour (so named because of a 3D lotus stage set) comes to the Arcata Theatre Lounge Saturday night. Friday at Humboldt Brews, it’s a relatively new funk/soul combo, River Valley Mud, that drummer Sam Kaplan-Good (from The Trouble) humbly describes as a “semi-supergroup” since the octet draws members from Bump Foundation, Small Axe, Motherlode, SambAmore, The Crab Grass Band and (of course) The Trouble. Arcata blues/funk jamband Liquid Kactus opens. Moody indie rock quartet Owl Paws is up from San Francisco for a Thursday show at the Jambalaya with local “cougar aphrodisiac rock” trio Strix Vega. Humboldt alt. folk is in full flower Friday at The Red Fox Tavern with a show called “Let’s Folk Things Up” featuring Gunsafe, The Plumb Uglies and Sunshine N Yellabird, three outfits that (coincidentally?) have all appeared on a KHSU feature, A Band About Town, hosted by Disc Jockey Knickerbocky. Also on the folked-up bill: The Wax Catastrophe and DJ Raphael Newdiggs Kroshay. Santa Cruz alt. Americana combo Tater Famine hits Humboldt for a couple of shows: Saturday, the trio is at The Shanty with Gunsafe and one-man-acousto-punk band Bored Again. Then on Sunday (starting 7-ish) TF plays an all-ages instore at Missing Link Records with trippy Portland guitar improviser Marissa Anderson and alt. country chanteuse Miss Lana Rebel from Tucson. L.A.-based blues-rock trio The Record Company has a retro sound rooted in American R&B, reminiscent of bluesy ’60s Brit bands like The Yardbirds or The Animals. Don’t hold it against the band, but the marketing plan for its debut EP Superdead is strictly up to date, including placement in a Coors Light commercial and tour sponsorship by Lucky Brand Jeans (which also provided the guys with stylish pants). The Record Co.’s West Coast tour includes a stop at the Jambalaya Saturday with an opening set by The Foggy Bottom Boys, with members of The Bucky Walters and The Nucleus. Ian Hiler, the quiet, steady, diligent force behind countless heavy rock shows (upsidedowncross, HFRC, etc.) celebrates his birthday Saturday night at The Alibi with a blast of diamond-hard rock by Lord Ellis and Greco. Jazz pianist Darius Brotman hosts Third Friday Jazz shows at Westhaven Center for the Arts, typically playing cool bebop with a small combo or on his own (that’s his piano at WCA). This Friday he and his guitarist friend Duncan Burgess shift to electronics to engage in what Brotman describes as “sound exploration with multiple delays and effects judiciously deployed using the new generation Casio keyboard.” Should be cool, definitely still jazzy. More jazz that night at Sewell Gallery with The Latin Peppers playing, you guessed it, Latin jazz. Trombonist Jimmy Durchslag from Ponche put the band together and does the arrangements for a variable lineup. This version is a quartet with Tim Randles on keys, bassist Damien Roomets and Orlando Morales on congas, timbales and other percussion. Straight-up funny hip hop lyricist Macklemore and beatmeister Ryan Lewis bring The Heist tour to the Depot Tuesday, but unless you already have a ticket, forget it. Wednesday, Oct. 24, same HSU location, Brother Ali is here behind his new Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color album with raps inspired by Arab spring and a trip to Mecca (he’s Muslim), and by the Occupy movement. Backed by a full band, Blank Tape Beloved, he’s joined by guests Homeboy Sandman, DJ Sosa and The Reminders. Old school hip hop? DJ Red, Gabriel Groom and Spaceman Spliff spin it at the Jambalaya Friday night. (Addicted to vinyl? Hit the Record Swap Meet Sunday during the day at Humboldt Brews.) In the Civil War variation on “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “John Brown’s body lies a-moldering in the grave” (but his soul is marching on). The Boston-based roots reggae band John Brown’s Body is not moldering at all. In fact the combo just released a new disc for Easy Star, JBB on Dub, with a half dozen classic dubwise instrumentals plus “The Grass,” a fan fave with vocals by JBB founder/frontman Elliot Martin. JBB’s long march brings it to Humboldt Brews on Tuesday with Midwestern reggae-tronic dub trio Jon Wayne and The Pain. Ashland’s 100 Watt Mind is based around the longtime collaboration between vocalist Brynna Dean, who has a touch of Janis Joplin in her delivery, and guitarist Skyler Squglio, whose leads harken back to the same psychedelic rock era. Add a rhythm section and you have a neo-classic rock band. Local support for a Wednesday, Oct. 24, show at the Jambalaya comes from The Small Axe, which I once erroneously described as “bluesy.” Since the instrumentation includes French horn, bassoon and trumpet (along with the usual guitar, bass and drums), the ensemble prefers the term “orchestral,” claiming to be “truly beyond common description” genre-wise. So, to repeat, not bluesy. And speaking of orchestral, Lost In The Trees, a Chapel Hill alt. folk music collective led by Ari Picker, returns to the Arcata Playhouse Tuesday with a new album, A Church That Fits Our Needs, on a tour with fellow North Carolinans Midtown Dickens and songwriter Dana Buoy. l HARVEST SALE OUTFIT YOURSELF FOR WINTER TODAY WITH OUR LOWEST PRICES OF THE YEAR ON CARHARTT APPAREL!

Kowinski email@example.com Characters sing about posing as men to do the work they love. Photo by Maia Cheli-Colando W omen of the Northwest, on stage at the Arcata Playhouse, celebrates 14 or so individual women in local history. But in performance, the lively, inventive and relatively brief vignettes about them do something more: They shine a different light on that history itself. Many of these women are appropriately remembered for individual accomplishments. Elta Cartwright, a track star at Eureka High (which itself made history by becoming the first high school to allow girls to run races in shorts) became the first woman in America to qualify for the 1928 Olympics. As mayor of Eureka from 1926 to 1931, Emily Jones was the first female mayor west of the Mississippi. After Martella Cone Lane moved to Fortuna with her husband in 1899, she revealed the redwoods to the world in her paintings. Emma Freeman was a prominent photographer who chronicled Eureka and Humboldt scenes from 1907 to 1920. Known as “The Lady of the Hills,” Margaret Smith Cobb lived in the wilderness near Garberville in those years, and wrote poems and romantic novels that were championed by Jack London. Susie Baker Fountain, a columnist for the Arcata Union and the Blue Lake Advocate through the 1950s, collected a century of Humboldt County history. Humboldt State claims her as its first graduate in 1915, and houses her historical records in its library. Stella Patterson, who came north after the San Francisco earthquake, had a full life but found herself alone in 1946 at age 80. She decided to live in an isolated cabin in the mountains on the Klamath River west of Happy Camp, where the two miners who were her nearest neighbors called her simply “Dear Mad’m.” That became the title of her book about the experience, which is still available. “I have lived the life I wanted,” she says in this play, “and the life I’ve loved.” The core cast of 12 actors presented aspects of these women’s lives, and storyteller Charlene Storr honored her grandmother, Sadie Gorbet (Tolowa), who at the age of 72 was the only Native American in the California delegation to the 1972 Democratic National Convention. She counseled her family to take the good parts of their tradition and of the modern world, and throw the rest away. Besides historical figures, the play depicts some mythical ones as well as composite characters and representative figures (a telephone operator, prostitutes, suffragettes.) Historical material was gathered and shaped by Jackie Dandeneau, Edith Butler and Tammy Rae Scott, but the presentation was created by the actors. They came up with an entertaining, very theatrical combination of monologues, dialogues, dramatic and comedic scenes, music and movement, plus bustling and lyrical meditations on themes such as food and motherhood. The first act was mostly a mosaic of lives, ending with a memorable moment. Members of the Native Women’s Collective sang some of the songs associated with the Flower Dance, a coming-of-age ceremony for girls that local tribes basically have in common. Reviving this dance has been a priority for at least 15 years, as I recall. They also spoke of the needs it addresses to restore a sense of self-respect, support and belonging to young women. The second act had more thematic threads, culminating in a final evocation of childbirth and motherhood, children and the lineage of women. Though the actors typically played several roles each, there were strong individual moments. With that peculiar 1930s diction, Dandeneau conveyed the scary if somewhat comic authority of Mayor Jones. Laura Munoz moved easily from an American Indian woman known only as one of Emma Freeman’s favorite photographic subjects to Antoinette Chartin, a cultured French woman who became one of the first nonNative pioneers in Blue Lake of the 1870s, opening a hotel there with her husband. Ali Freedlund was a spirited Elta Cartwright. The most amazing feature of Siena Nelson’s performance as a cowboy who was secretly female (a not uncommon subterfuge) wasn’t her perfect gait and vocal cadence: it was the hardness in her eyes. There were vivid performances by Jada Owen and Ciara Cheli-Colando in the final thematic sections. Musicians Julie Froblom, Jill Petricca, Dharla Curry and Jan Bramlett joined the action as needed. Other onstage participants were Tammy Rae Scott and Rebecca Zettler. These roughly two hours did not offer complete portraits, nor were all ethnic groups and occupations represented. But by including themes from women’s lives that influence common events, this production as a whole evokes in dynamic fashion a dimension of experience often neglected in the usual histories. From a rhythm of life revealed by cooks for a lumber camp to the “river of blood” of childbirth, the play suggests a perspective it is vital to include. Set design is by Siena Nelson, lighting by David Ferney and costumes by Lydia Foreman.

Put a checkmark in that box,” I told my only cheerleader with quivering limbs and lips. It was my third, and last, marathon.

In May, the English actor/comedian traveled to South Africa to raise money and awareness for South African charities. The angle? Izzard aimed to run 27 marathons in 27 days in tribute to the 27 years Nelson Mandela spent as a political prisoner, all the while filming a documentary and speaking to locals about Mandela’s life and legacy. Well, he didn’t make it. After only a respectable four marathons, Izzard found himself hospitalized due to the “severe terrain, humidity and altitude” of the region. Yeah, that makes sense. But amazingly, Izzard announced on his website that he plans to return to South Africa and complete his exhausting endeavor. “I owe that to Nelson Mandela who has inspired the world to struggle and succeed no matter what dancing with live music from the 1930s-50s. $4. 725-5323.

Though it is partially named after a surviving ’50s burger joint in Hackensack, N.J., the word “manna” refers to the wafers eaten by ancient Israelites, wafers that also can produce sensations akin to psilocybin mushrooms or peyote. This duality, one that joins greasy burgers and ancient mind-altered spirituality, has served the band extremely well. And its self-titled full-length release by the prestigious UK label, Holy Mountain, is a sheer sonic force and arguably the finest 2012 debut to be released so far. White Manna draws inspiration from ’70s Detroit bands like MC5 and The Stooges, who constructed a musical framework influenced by factory-like rhythm and sound, then filters that through ’90s psych-rock and garage influences. The approach is focused, while allowing for rough edges. “Acid Head,” the slowburning opening cut, sets the tone of the record, building from hum to blast, with neither purely chaotic nor slickly orchestrated heaviness; instead, it feels oddly organic and methodical. If those Detroit predecessors took inspiration from the metallic sounds of once-thriving auto factories, then White Manna draws from the slower, burning-orange glow of the melding process of metal. As opposed to a band like the Bay Area’s Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, with whom it shares a few obvious influences, there’s a constant undercurrent of energy that keeps the music buoyant, elevated instead of ambling into some type of void. The work of locally based recording engineer Peter Dalmolen (from The Nucleus) and mastering engineer Brian Pyle (of Starving Weirdos/Ensemble Economique) masterfully captures the band’s raw sound while providing clarity in the overall mix, allowing the listener to hear each distinct instrument. There are no gratuitous solos or any other distractions bringing attention to one particular instrument or part. There’s an unusual Zen-like discipline to the execution; it propels and gives natural arcs to these five lengthy, yet dense, compositions that flow from one song into the next. Vocalist, guitarist and bandleader David “J” Johnson, bassist Johnny Webb, drummer Tavan Anderson, keyboardist Nate Clement and guitarist Cody West all contribute to the unified arrangements. (Dario Marcello and Anthony Taibi have subsequently replaced the latter two members.) With the release this impressive debut, White Manna joins an unspoken collective of current Humboldt-based bands, such as Starving Weirdos/ Ensemble Economique and Ash Borer, that have garnered considerable attention, nationwide and abroad for challenging, uncompromising work that runs underground, below the celebrated mainstream. True to its namesake, White Manna, by drawing from an industrial, blue-collar aspect of musical history, rises to a powerfully engaging trance-like plateau. — Mark Shikuma See White Manna on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at The Shanty.

Every year the ArMack Orchestra, comprised of students from McKinleyville and Arcata high schools, heads out on a journey to play a concert and learn more about music someplace far away. Last year it was London. The next big trip is to New York City where the orchestra will compete in a music festival and perform at no less than Carnegie Hall. How do you get to Carnegie Hall? The answer to the old joke is “practice, practice, practice,” and you can be sure that’s part of the plan. But getting there also requires a fair amount of fundraising. That leads us to another ArMack tradition, the annual not-so-silent movie. Every year Maestra Carol Jacobsen selects some silent film classic and puts together a score as a soundtrack (along with sound effects cues) to be performed by the student orchestra. This time out the film is a Douglas Fairbanks swashbuckler from 1926, The Black Pirate. The high seas adventure begins with pirates looting and sinking a ship, assuming that they’ve killed all aboard since, “Dead men tell no tales.” What they don’t know is that an old man and his son made it to shore. When his father dies, the son (Fairbanks) vows vengeance. There’s plenty of what you’d expect from a pirate flick: sword fights, buried treasure, wooden legs, a touch of romance. Those attending are invited to dress up in pirate garb, boo the villains, cheer the hero and say things with extended “rrr” sounds. Arrre you ready for popcorn? A two-weekend run of The Black Pirate starts Oct. 18 at McKinleyville High with shows at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and an extra Saturday matinee at 2 p.m. The same schedule (including the matinee) repeats the following weekend, Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 25-27, at Arcata High. Admission is just $5. Bring extra booty since there will be snacks available.

Bennett email@example.com Reviews ARGO. Ben Affleck spent most of his thirties getting kicked around by trolls and bottom-feeders who dragged his personal life and professional accomplishments through the mud. I’ve never understood why so many people saw fit to pile on the guy; he’s always seemed likeable enough to me. So it’s been satisfying to watch him become an accomplished filmmaker and push his middle fingers up at his detractors. Affleck demonstrated extraordinary poise and restraint behind the camera with his first two features — Gone Baby Gone (2007) and The Town (2010). The former, a grim kidnap drama, and the latter, a taut bank robbery romance, both showcase insightful performances, restrained pacing and honest, emotional storytelling. In hindsight they seem like practice runs for his most masterful effort yet. With Argo, all of the attributes that make Affleck a noteworthy filmmaker come together in one of the most satisfying and expertly made movies of the year. It’s set during the Iran hostage crisis of 1979-80. After the American-installed Shah of Iran falls ill and seeks treatment/ asylum in the U.S., revolutionaries take to the streets of Tehran. Protesting the Shah’s westernizing influence and rule-by- torture, they eventually overrun and occupy the American embassy. All but six of the embassy staff are captured and held captive. Those six diplomats, sheltered by the Canadian ambassador, become the object of a contentious, secret rescue operation. It falls to C.I.A exfiltration expert Tony Mendez (Affleck) to construct airtight false identities for them and smuggle them out of the country. With some Hollywood help, he devises a plan: He and the diplomats will pose as a Canadian science-fiction film crew scouting locations in Iran. Seems implausible, right? Kind of harebrained and ludicrous? You’re not wrong, and yet it really happened. Argo opens with the overthrow of the embassy and then takes us methodically through the planning and execution of the rescue operation: from the smoky backrooms of Langley, where spooks argue over the efficacy of even less practical plans, to the B-list Hollywood studios where the fake movie has its real offices, and eventually to Tehran for a breathlessly tense climax. As a director, Affleck goes admirably old-school. He knows how to frame a shot and move the camera, but he’s not out to dazzle us with style. When appropriate, as in the frenzied scenes that open not be the movie we are currently watching. It’s a post-modern movie-within-amovie concept: a clever idea, but a little wanting in the execution. Martin’s loony best friend (Sam Rockwell) operates an apparently profitable dog-napping enterprise with a business partner (Christopher Walken). When they ransom the shih tzu of an unbalanced crime boss (Woody Harrelson), they have to go on the run to avoid reprisal. The trailer implied brisk and madcap, but it’s as bleak and deliberately paced as McDonagh’s previous feature. It’s also punctuated by an excess of gratuitous bloody violence and a number of plot elements that should have stayed in the notebook they were culled from. On the plus side, the actors, across the board, are very good. Walken gives one of his finest performances in years. And some of the dialogue crackles and surprises, but that just highlights the lines that don’t work. And that’s a snapshot of the movie’s overall lack of follow-through. The script is full of clever, entertaining ideas, but they’re diminished by overcrowding. Given some sure-handed editing in the early stages, Seven Psychopaths could have been a classic, but it will probably be forgotten. R. 110m. —John J. Bennett Previews PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4.

But when the action pulls back and calms down, so does the camera. For most of the movie, it moves slowly and judiciously, giving us an opportunity to take in the exquisitely detailed sets and costumes. And as the story builds, the camera’s presence becomes less and less discernible. This efficient camerawork is an impressive sign of self-confidence. Affleck believes in his script, his actors and his own grasp of the production strongly enough to settle down and just do the work. This story wouldn’t benefit from crazy camera tricks or slam-bang editing, so he eschews them. The result is a movie that is epic in scope but focused and economical in method. Argo is also filled with tremendous performances. In the lead role, Affleck acquits himself admirably, bringing to Mendez an utterly convincing mix of sadness, resignation and self-confidence. As his immediate superior, Bryan Cranston is excellent as usual, and John Goodman and Alan Arkin share a number of great, funny scenes as the Hollywood operators backing Mendez’s play. This is a masterful movie, a throwback of sorts, refreshingly devoid of irony or sarcasm. It’s a history lesson, a potent thriller and a meditation on trust and commitment. It is also very much about the excitement, humanity and cross-cultural currency of the movies. R. 120m. SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS. I was ready to love the latest from writer/director Martin McDonagh (In Bruges). The cast is spectacular, the premise is original, and the trailer promised violence and jokes in equal measure. It sounded almost obscenely good. But it isn’t. Certainly not bad, but maybe even more disappointing in light of “what might have been.” Colin Farrell plays Martin, a drunken Irish screenwriter living in LA and struggling to write his next movie.

THE HEIGHT OF THE LINE ‘H’ FOLLOWS A SINE CURVE AS THE RADIUS LINE ‘R’ ROTATES THROUGH A FULL CIRCLE. NORTH COAST JOURNAL GRAPHIC BELOW HUMBOLDT BAY TIDES FOLLOW SINE CURVES. TIDE GRAPH APP FOR THE IPAD By Barry Evans firstname.lastname@example.org E ven though we probably grew up in different countries and eras, I bet you and I were introduced to trigonometry the same way: triangles in circles. Draw a triangle inside a circle so that the hypotenuse of the triangle is a radius of the circle, and you can create formulas for the sine, cosine, tangent and all the rest. Unfortunately, this analytic — read static — approach misses the key element of trig, that it’s dynamic. Take the sine. In the context of a triangle in a circle, as the radius line rotates through a full 360 degrees, the value of the sine increases and decreases smoothly between plus-one and minus-one and back again (see graphic). Well yeah, but that’s for scratchy blackboards in dusty classrooms. What the ubiquitous sine really represents is: waves on water; tree branches in wind; inflow and outflow of breath; a child on a swing; stadium waves; to-and fro rocking of an earthquake; phases of the moon through the lunar month; a cyclist standing on pedals pumping up a hill; height of the noonday sun throughout the year; rising and falling of tides. Not to mention sound waves, AC electricity, light and radio waves — the list is endless. The commonality here is oscillation, as some variable swings smoothly from one extreme to the other and back again: The faster it moves, the more the braking force. Here’s a banking analogy, adapted from Kalid Azid’s brilliant mathematical website “Better Explained” (betterexplained. com). Every week, your weird boss gives you a negative raise based on your bank balance. So if you have $50 in the bank, your raise next week is -$50. Later, when your balance is say -$80, you get a +$80 raise. So as soon as you start making money, your balance is “pulled back” to the mid-point (zero); and as you start losing money, it’s pulled back up. The more you’ve got, the faster you lose it, and the less you’ve got, the faster you gain it. That constant pull towards the mid-point is what keeps the cycle going, represented by the most natural of curves, the sine wave. (By the way, if the shape of a sine wave reminds you of breasts, you’re thinking like an ancient Roman, since etymologically “sine” is cognate with the Latin for “bosom.” This in turn derived from Sanskrit jiva/jya, originally the term for a bow, as in bow and arrow.) The idea for this column came while I was standing on the boardwalk staring at the water. The rhythm of my breath seemed to perfectly match the slow cadence of waves in the bay as I pictured my smoothly changing inhalation and exhalation, slowing to nothing at maximum inand maximum out-breaths. The sine wave: nature’s repeating refrain that tells us we’re not separate from the universe. ● Barry Evans (barryevans9@yahoo. com) believes that a life without sines is not worth living. northcoastjournal.com • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Oct. 18, 2012 35 County Clerk of Humboldt County on September 24, 2012.
