cidents she suffered were part of some grand conspiracy to bring her to this present work so dear to her heart and so vital to Humboldt’s. From the moment I met her I gained confidence in my treatment. She hates cancer, and as a fellow athlete I saw a game face on her that I knew was a winner. I didn’t see much of Dr. Harmon until near the end of treatment when we had a longer chat and he mentioned the importance of exercise. I replied that learning to surf was on my bucket list. He told me about a program he participates in doing surf camps for cancer survivors. He encouraged me to apply and helped me do so. Not enough can be said of the brilliant staffs of these docs and of St. Joseph. The Humboldt Breast Health Project was also there every step of the way and a tome could be written on what their presence has meant to local cancer care. Thank you, Dr. Mahoney and dinner companions, and congratulations to all of Humboldt on this partnership. Ann Constantino, Garberville
Debating Singleton Editor: The title “Defending Singleton” grabbed my attention a couple of weeks ago, causing me to read a column I generally make it a practice to skip over. Initially, I considered composing a response to it, but realizing I couldn’t really do justice to its shortcomings within your 300 word limit, I didn’t try. So I was pleased that the letters by Tim Gray and Todd Larsen in your Jan. 30 issue dealt quite nicely with the non-sequiturial reasoning and tortured contrarianism that had so vexed me in the column, leaving just one remaining item I felt required
public attention. That was Singleton’s foray into employing the email spam problem as another wedge for extortion. I recalled that the NCJ’s cover story (by Ryan Burns) in the Sept. 30, 2010 issue described the effective destruction of another Cartoon by joel mielke business — the small Garberville internet service provider which Singleton had apparently persuaded he could assist by employing the federal CAN-SPAM Act in order to deter the spam-scum who were tormenting it. I thought this additional example of his practice of dredging up plaintiffs to front for his racket would provide a helpful perspective to fill out the picture. So I looked up that article and re-read it. What an eyeful that was! Besides refreshing my recall on that particular gratuitous disaster, it contained offhand references to Bob Doran’s article “Access and Dollars” way back in the March 8, 2001 issue (also a cover story) and Heidi Walters’ “Jason Singleton Strikes Again” in the May 8, 2008 NCJ. All three are required reading (if you think you can bear to know what’s actually going on), and all are available in the NCJ’s website archive. Read ‘em and weep... or gnash your teeth.

Short Sea Doldrums STEPHEN PEPPER WANTED TO LAUNCH SHORT SEA SHIPPING FROM THE SCHNEIDER DOCK IN EUREKA. PHOTO BY HEIDI WALTERS
By Heidi Walters
emember short sea shipping, that siren who lured us into a maritime reverie some years ago — a fortune-filled dream in which Humboldt Bay once again had a bustling port, helping to reduce transportation costs, air pollution and highway wear-and-tear? Where goods-laden barges — carrying more than just fuel and wood chips — made regular stops between the Port of Humboldt and other West Coast ports, taking thousands of trucks off the highways and using less fuel to move the same amount of goods? It seemed a fine idea, a positively Humboldtian, green idea. But what ever happened to it? Last week, seeking just such an update, the citizen-driven Humboldt Bay Harbor Working Group gathered a panel to talk about short sea shipping. The upshot? While short sea shipping is showing signs of life elsewhere — between Stockton and Oakland, for instance — it’s comatose here in Humboldt, and it could remain so indefinitely. “I don’t really see a near term — a tangible — opportunity right now,” panelist Stephen Pepper, of Humboldt Marine Logistics in Arcata, told the group. Pepper’s the tug-boat operatorturned-entrepreneur who, in 2008, pitched the idea of a short sea shipping route between five ports — Longview, Wash.; Coos Bay, Ore.; Humboldt; Oakland and Long Beach. The route would be serviced by a barge that could haul containers carrying anything from bottled water to potting soil to lumber — just nothing requiring quick delivery; it would stop in Humboldt once a week. Pepper predicted this barge service, in addition to relieving truck traffic congestion on the Interstate 5 corridor and reducing truck emissions, would run 20 percent cheaper than trucking. The Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District agreed to sponsor the endeavor,
named it the West Coast Hub-Feeder Project and submitted a proposal for market research assistance to the newly established Marine Highway Program, which was seeking projects to help finance. In the end, the feds diverted a paltry sum — $275,000, about a quarter of what Pepper and the district needed — to a broader analysis of various marine highway opportunities along the M-5 corridor (M-5 stands for Marine Highway 5 and corresponds with Interstate 5). Pepper had planned to get by with the Schneider Dock in Eureka, at first. Each port needed a modern crane, however, and the private barge services needed to be employed. But without the funds to identify specific freight and seduce enough willing shippers, Pepper said, it wouldn’t be possible to secure yet more public and private dollars to foot the actual $82 million it would take to get the project up and running. So it was over. “That was enough for us to say, ‘We’re done, we’re moving on,’” Pepper said by phone after the meeting last week. The district explored other short sea shipping ideas, and hired Pepper to write TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) grants to buy key equipment, such as a large, mobile marine crane for loading containers on barges, and a barge. The efforts were unsuccessful. The district couldn’t prove that it would be able to drum up enough freight volume to make the costs of shipping by barge competitive with trucking. At last week’s meeting, panelist Richard Marks, a harbor district commissioner, passed around a cost analysis specifically for barging lumber to Redwood City to re-load for shipping to points beyond. It showed that barging lumber, at best, would only match current trucking rates in the same freight corridor. In addition, it would be hard to guarantee a weekly schedule, because barges are not good in heavy seas and rough weather slows them down. The third panelist at the meeting, Stas Margaronis, from Santa Rosa, for

Humboldt’s entry onto America’s marine highways has stalled years tried to get a small, fast, fuelefficient container ship built specifically for short sea shipping — similar to ships used in Europe where short sea shipping now moves at least 40 percent of the freight, according to the trade magazine Seatrade Global. This smaller ship would have an on-board crane, and it would be able to move between ports more quickly and reliably than barges. Margaronis dreamed of a route between Humboldt and Stockton that could take several hundred truckloads a week off U.S. Highway 101. In 2009, he proposed building an enclosed shipyard and dock at Fields Landing for his small ships. He couldn’t get the investors. Margaronis dropped the idea and now devotes his time to writing for the American Journal of Transportation. But he’s still hot and heavy for short sea shipping, and points to Marine Highway 580 for inspiration. The M-580 launched last May, is where containerized goods, once destined to travel by trucks on clogged freeways, are now moving by barge via ship channel and the San Joaquin River between Stockton, Sacramento and the Port of Oakland. At the meeting last week, Margaronis seemed outraged that nothing’s happening here in Humboldt. “There’s a big attitude problem that we’re facing,” Margaronis said. “So many institutional obstacles.” If Humboldt wants short sea shipping, Margaronis said after the meeting, then Humboldt has got to go to Washington in person and demand it. Pepper said there’s no doubt that all eyes are on Stockton, and that if it continues to succeed that could entice investors to similar projects. But Humboldt’s a small, outdated port in need of major infrastructure — namely a large, mobile marine crane and a solid bulkhead dock that goes into deep water, or at least a dock wide enough to have multiple causeways for loading and unloading barges. And Humboldt’s producers, including timber companies and sawmills, need a reason to step out of their comfort zone and
away from traditional shipping. It will take federal investment to get them excited about trying something different, Pepper and others say. And maybe a massive hike in fuel prices — something harbor commissioner Patrick Higgins says is inevitable. “If the U.S. government were forward looking, funding would be available for compatible infrastructure in all West Coast Ports so that goods and commodities could be handled efficiently at all locations,” Higgins said. “This would help to cushion the shock of fuel price increases that we all know are coming and help improve air quality that has fallen to abysmal levels in the Central Valley and Willamette Valley (along I-5).” But market forces, Pepper told the group last week, “are dictating that [short sea shipping] is not necessary at this time.” Pepper said it would be better, right now, for the harbor district and Humboldt to allocate their time and energy to more attainable opportunities, such as the aquaculture park and other projects proposed for the old pulp mill site out on the Samoa Peninsula. And it should find a way to build that modern dock. Then, maybe, the bigger bucks will come. That is exactly what the harbor district is doing, says district CEO Jack Crider. Next Monday, in fact, the district and Humboldt State University are hosting an open house to show off some of the proposals for the recently purchased mill site, including an aquaculture innovation park. In the meantime, Crider said, the district is planning to design a dock and get the permitting process underway, which might better set it up to snag a federal grant to pay for construction. (Typically, federal grants obligate the funds for a maximum of two years, said Crider. But permitting, alone, can take that long.) “Hopefully,” Crider said by email last week, “in the next couple of years we will be in a position of having a shovel-ready project that can compete for TIGER grant funds.” The dock’s construction could cost as much as $30 million. l

“Books are the bees which carry the quickening pollen from one to another mind.” ~James Russell Lowell
By Grant Scott-Goforth
Here’s a question of local perception about pot, which simply doesn’t engender the same vitriol as other drugs around here: Do “upstanding” locals grow and use marijuana because it’s less serious, or do we consider it less serious because more “upstanding” locals grow and use it? A prominent community member arrested last year on cultivation charges was back in the news recently. Matt Nutter, who managed the successful Humboldt Crabs for 6 years (and was involved with them in other capacities for more than 20), was charged with growing marijuana, possessing marijuana for sale and “allowing a place for preparing or storing a controlled substance.” He was arrested at his Blue Lake home in August (see “Blog Jammin’,” page 8 for more details) and was subsequently put on paid administrative leave from the Crabs. This week, the team’s board of directors announced a new manager to replace Nutter — who left the team to focus on his family, according to a press release. Nutter’s case is particularly interesting because of the deal worked out with prosecutors. While Nutter was charged with cultivation for the 265-plant grow sheriff’s deputies allegedly found on his property, prosecutors were convinced enough that he was growing for personal use to agree to a diversion program. If he were growing pot to sell, he wouldn’t have qualified. Now, if a marijuana plant grown outdoors conservatively yields a pound of processed pot, that makes Nutter’s presumed personal use three quarters of a pound a day (or a pound a day, if he quits for baseball season). It sounds like a neighborhood play. Now he must complete a judgeordered treatment program (details still to be determined) and not get arrested for the next 18 months, and the arrest and the charges will disappear. It’s as though it never happened, his attorney explained
(aside from the public archive that will exist in newspapers like this one). Nutter’s attorney makes a good point: How can someone lose their job over a crime that never legally happened? Ostensibly, the personnel shift was Nutter’s choice and it’s all good cheer. Nutter was well-liked and successful. The team won more than 75 percent of its games with him as its skipper. It also makes sense that the Crabs board has not only the welfare of the team to look after, but the reputation of its collegiate athletes, many of whom are trying to work their way into the majors. The tarnish of a marijuana arrest is weightier outside the Emerald Triangle, no doubt, but so what? People erupted from their seats to debate the physics and ethics of a Crab-thrown bat during last season’s playoffs, but there were virtual crickets when cops said the team manager was growing dope. If Nutter was good for the Crabs, and the Crabs are good for the community, why the stigma? Well, it’s done now. Hopefully the team will come out from under the semi-scandal and will continue to thrive without Nutter’s leadership. And, hopefully Nutter will make the most of some additional time with his family. But, let’s not let baseball become yet another victim of dubious criminalization. Legalize it. And play ball.

Blog Jammin’ FISHSTELLATION AT SCRAPPER’S EDGE. PHOTOS BY HEIDI WALTERS.
BUSINESS / ECONOMY / BY THADEUS GREENSON / TUESDAY, FEB. 4 AT 1:17 P.M.
Caltrans recently had what amounted to a very bad day. Specifically, Jan. 30, when Caltrans lost a major appellate court ruling on perhaps its highest profile North Coast project and was the subject of a scathing state report. First, the California Court of Appeals overturned a trial court decision and ruled that Caltrans must re-evaluate the environmental impact report for its proposed project to widen U.S. Highway 101 through Richardson Grove State Park. Specifically, the ruling found Caltrans violated the California Environmental Quality Act, and that its environmental impact report did not do enough to calculate the project’s potential impacts on old growth redwood trees in Richardson Grove. The Environmental Protection Information Center — one of six plaintiffs in the case — hailed the court’s decision as a victory. “The significance of this ruling cannot be overstated,” said EPIC Executive Director Gary Graham Hughes in a press release. “Our ancient redwoods are invaluable, and we hope Caltrans gets the message that their survival cannot be put at risk by a careless highway development proposal.” Caltrans spokesman Scott Burger said the agency could not provide an estimate as to how long it will take to revise the project’s EIR, but the agency released a brief statement. “Caltrans remains committed to delivering this important interregional transportation project in a sustainable way and will work to comply with the court’s ruling,” it said. “This project is planned and
designed not to remove any old growth redwood trees. Measures are in place to protect the surrounding redwoods in the area.” While many local businesses have clamored for the widening project — which they believe would decrease their costs by allowing larger shipping trucks to pass through the park — the ruling didn’t seem to cause much of a stir. Officials at both the Greater Eureka Area Chamber of Commerce and the Humboldt Small Business Development Center said they were unaware of it until contacted by the Journal. Caltrans’ day got worse when results of an independent review of the agency ordered by Gov. Jerry Brown were released and detailed a host of “long-standing problems.” Specifically, the review found that the agency’s mission, vision and goals are not aligned with the state’s current needs. The review also sharply criticized the agency for prioritizing new projects over the upkeep and maintenance of the state’s highway system. ● GOVERNMENT / BY THADEUS GREENSON / FRIDAY, FEB. 4
Eureka Zeroing in on a City Manager
The City Council met Feb. 3 to interview six candidates, according to Mayor Frank Jager, with the hopes of naming a finalist or two by the end of the day. While the city wouldn’t release its list of finalists, Jager said it included two local candidates, three from elsewhere in California and one from out of state. The city’s search firm, Peckham and McKenney, put forward nine candidates for the posi-

tion, Jager said, and the council identified six favorites to be interviewed. The city has been searching for a city manager since Bill Panos abruptly resigned his post in September to take a job in the Wyoming governor’s office after a nine-month stint in Eureka. Assistant City Manager Mike Knight has stepped into the city manager’s role on an interim basis, and former City Manager David Tyson has been brought on part time to help out. Because some folks expressed dissatisfaction with Peckham and McKenney’s background checks during the process that led to Panos’ hiring, Jager said the city plans to do some of its own vetting this time, which could slow the process. “I think we’re going to do a much more thorough, in-depth background check,” Jager said. Jager said Feb. 4 that the interviews went well, and that the council plans on bringing back three finalists — including one local — for a pair of panel-style interviews at the end of the month. From there, he said the council will choose its top candidate for the job and begin an extensive background investigation process. ● FRIVOLITY / BY THADEUS GREENSON / MONDAY, FEB. 3 AT 10:45 P.M.
Humboldt’s ‘Swingin’ Senior’ Mecca
Single Eureka elders rejoice, your city has been named one of the nation’s 13 best for swingin’ seniors! Estately, an online real estate search site, released its list Feb. 3, including Eureka as one of its prime destinations for retirees for whom “school districts no longer matter,” and who want somewhere
to live that’s “fun and exciting, while also remaining clean, safe and relatively affordable.” And just what, you might ask, warranted Eureka’s inclusion among the likes of Portland, San Francisco, Yuma, Ariz. and Cape Coral, Fla.? We’ll let the fine folks at Estately fill you in: “Move to the largest West Coast city between San Francisco and Portland and you’ll be in good company; nearly half of the population is over the age of 55, with ladies outnumbering gents by several thousand. Hit up Eureka’s Bayshore Mall for all of your retail needs, and do your shopping at the region’s only Costco.” Apparently, weather, crime rates, services and public transportation no longer sway the senior crowd. ● COURTS / CRIME / SPORTS / BY GRANT SCOTT-GOFORTH / MONDAY, FEB. 3 AT 3:17 P.M.
Crabs Manager Out, Deal Struck in Marijuana Case
Crabs Manager Matt Nutter has been replaced. Tyson Fisher — a former Crabs assistant coach and current Fortuna High baseball coach — has been chosen by the team’s board of directors to take over the manager position. According to a Crabs press release, Nutter had been considering leaving the team for several years. There was no mention of his legal woes being part of the decision to leave the team. “My daughters are nearing the time when they will go off to college and I haven’t had a summer with the family in a very long time,” Nutter said in the release.

pending the resolution of his criminal case, according to the Times-Standard. Crabs management did not return calls seeking comment. ● ART / BY JENNIFER FUMIKO CAHILL / SATURDAY, FEB. 1 AT 9:50 A.M.
Nutter was arrested shortly after the end of last year’s baseball season on suspicion of growing and possessing marijuana for sale — though he appears to have reached a deal with prosecutors that could see the arrest and charges wiped from his record. The deal, a diversion possible through section 1000 of the California Penal Code, is awaiting approval from a judge. Nutter had no prior convictions for drug offenses involving violence, or threatened violence, according to his attorney, Patrik Griego. And while police reported finding 265 marijuana plants at Nutter’s rural Blue Lake home in August, Griego said diversion was allowed if the plants were being cultivated for personal use. “If you’re growing for purposes of selling you don’t qualify for PC 1000 diversion,” Griego said. If Nutter completes a court ordered treatment — most likely drug education courses — and doesn’t get arrested again for 18 months, “it’s as if, legally, it never happened,” Griego said. It’s an opportunity for those who “really don’t belong” in the criminal justice system, he said, “something that can be dealt with more informally.” Nutter — the popular and winning former manager — was with the Crabs for 21 seasons as a player, board member and manager. Griego said it’s unlikely for an employer to fire someone if a diversion is completed successfully — after all, in 18 months Nutter’s record of legal woes could, essentially, cease to exist. “It’s very clear you’re not convicted,” Griego said of the diversion. “Most employers don’t use something like this against [an employee] because there’s nothing to use.” Nutter was placed on paid administrative leave by the team following his arrest,

The dozen or so students cut out each of the 50 wooden fish, painted them and slapped them on the building at 728 Fourth St. Texas thinks projects like this one reduce graffiti, “sometimes because vandals are less likely to tag artwork, and sometimes because it is the taggers themselves who are helping paint our murals.” The more easily enunciated Ink People’s DreamMaker program is behind the project, which was formerly funded by the defunct Eureka Redevelopment Agency. Now it depends on donations, grants and money from businesses, like US Bank, which ponied up for the fish. Take a tour of the (deep breath) Rural Burl Mural Bureau’s greatest hits around Old Town, including “Attack of the Humboldt Squid” (First and F streets), “Inharmonious,” (520 F St.) and “Animals Are People, Too” (905 Fourth St.).

Eighty-year-old Eureka resident Robert Mitchell died Jan. 28 after being struck by a truck while trying to cross Broadway on foot. Coroner Dave Parris said it appears that Mitchell was at fault in the accident, and was crossing outside of a crosswalk, though the crash is still under investigation. EPD Traffic Officer Gary Whitmer said he doesn’t anticipate charges will be filed against the 60-year-old Arcata resident who was driving the College of the Redwoods truck that hit Mitchell. The accident was the second of two that morning, which saw the first rain in some-time on the North Coast. Drive careful out there, folks. ●

Conflicting S Reports
hortly after Sandra Lingle moved to Eureka from San Diego 32 years ago, something made an impression. “I saw somebody walking their dog at 11 o’clock at night — a woman — and I was thrilled,” she recalled last week. To Lingle, the sight reinforced that she’d moved to a safe place, a community where she could walk down the block at night without looking over her shoulder. Over the ensuing decades, Lingle walked all over Eureka from her little home tucked off H Street, paying little heed to the time of day or night. That’s changed in recent months. “I think it’s just too crazy,” she said. “I don’t go out late, or at like 5 a.m., like I used to. I think crime has really gotten bad. It’s increasing.” It’s a claim you hear everywhere — at barbershops, coffee houses and huddled around water coolers — and one you see splashed across social media outlets: Humboldt County, and Eureka especially, is growing more violent, more crime ridden. It seems to be reinforced with every headline: a priest brutally killed in Eureka; a man stabbed to death in Trinidad; three people violently slain in Arcata last year. But criminologists and data tell us crime is on the decline across the nation and the state. In fact, stats from the California Department of Justice indicate that in 2012 — the last year for which statistics are available — Humboldt County recorded the fewest number of reported violent crimes in more than a decade. So, what can we make of these statistics that so clearly fly in the face of what many on the North Coast are feeling? Is there a disconnect between perception and reality? If so, how do we feel safe again?
California’s violent crime rate hit a 45-year low in
People seem to think violence is on the rise in Humboldt, but is it?
2011, the result of a couple of decades of steady decline since 1992, when the state peaked out at 11.2 reported violent crimes per 1,000 residents. Despite a slight uptick in 2012, the state violent crime rate remained at a near-historic low, with just 4.22 reported violent crimes for every 1,000 residents, just a skosh above the national rate of 3.87. According to the California Department of Justice, Humboldt County’s violent crime rate came in at 2.89 per 1,000 residents, far below the state and even national averages. For the most part, cities around the county enjoyed similarly low numbers in 2012 — 3.82 in Fortuna, 2.17 in Ferndale, 2.35 in Rio Dell, 3.1 in Arcata. Overall, in 2012, Humboldt County seemed a fairly safe place for people to live, according to the data. There is, however, a notable exception. Eureka, the county seat and Humboldt’s social and economic epicenter, far outpaced the national and state averages, recording 5.79 reported violent crimes per 1,000 residents. That’s a violent crime rate that outpaces cities like Long Beach, Fresno and Los Angeles, according to the FBI, but one that pales in comparison to the state’s worst, Oakland and Stockton, which recorded 19.93 and 15.48 violent crimes per 1,000 residents, respectively. But violent crime — homicides, rapes, robberies and assaults — is

only one component to community safety, and the statistics clearly show that while you may be comparatively safe in Humboldt County, your car stereo is not. In 2012, the state recorded a reported property crime rate of 27.59 per 1,000 residents, a more than 7.5 percent increase from 2011. If Humboldt County’s rate was comparatively high, coming in at 35.97, Eureka’s were astronomical at 71.21, according to figures from the FBI. But Eureka’s property crime numbers have always been staggeringly high, and the rate of 71.21 recorded in 2012 was less than half that recorded in 1994. From 1985 through 1995, Eureka’s property crime rate topped 100 eight times, according to the FBI data, which also indicates the city’s property crime rates were at a historic sixyear low until ticking up 17.5 percent from 2011 to 2012. Similarly, Eureka’s violent crime rates have seen a modest and gradual — if somewhat inconsistent — downward trend since a record high of 19.23 in 1987. Since then, the city has seen five-year averages of 6.17, 9.23, 7.02, 7.33 and 6.39 over the last 25 years. So, yes, Eureka’s violent crime rate is alarmingly high for a city its size, but it has been for a long, long time.
If you talk to
sociologists and criminologists, many will tell you that gauging the safety of a community purely by crime data is a fool’s errand. First and foremost, it’s important to note that the largest databases on California Crime — the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports and the California Department of Justice — only include crimes that were reported to the police. Gary Sokolow, a criminologist who teaches at College of the Redwoods’ Police Academy, said studies indicate that only about half of all crimes committed wind up being reported to authorities. “Due to victims’ apathy, shame, fear, etc., for every 1,000 actual crimes anywhere, only about 500 get reported,” Sokolow said. “Right away, 50 percent of crime comes off the charts.” Then, others point out, there’s the fact that the two databases rely on law enforcement agencies to self-report their data, which is problematic on a number of levels. First of all, Eureka Police Chief Andrew Mills points out, there can be huge discrepancies between how agencies report. For example, a small agency that has a volunteer compiling and reporting its data might not report as comprehensively as a larger agency with a full records division. In some cases, sinister motives can also sway statistics. For example, a police de-
partment under pressure to get a handle on crime might underreport, classifying rapes as assaults, robberies as thefts and violent assaults as disorderly conduct calls. The phenomenon was famously summed up as “juking the stats” by Roland Pryzbylewski, a character on HBO’s crime drama “The Wire.” “Making robberies into larcenies. Making rapes disappear. You juke the stats, and majors become colonels,” he said. Statistics can also get juked in the other direction by agencies pushing for larger budgets to tackle crime problems. Sokolow pointed to the infamous quotas enacted by the New York Police Department in an effort to show the public it was cracking down on crime. “Statistics can lie and be manipulated,” Sokolow said. “It’s like the accountant who is asked, ‘How much is two plus two’ and answers, ‘How much do you want it to be?’ (Crime statistics) are kind of a mixed bag. The best I can tell you is it’s just a very rough indicator.” Even in situations without nefarious intentions and where reporting is uniform and spot on, crime data doesn’t travel in real time. Consequently, we’re talking about crime problems today while looking at statistics from more than a year ago. This is especially problematic at this particular moment in time, when California prison realignment is a new reality. While studies by Stanford University and the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice have found there to be no evidence that realignment has caused a spike in violent crime, there’s no data we can turn to on a local level. Instead, we’re left to anecdotal evidence (law enforcement officials say there’s been a spike in property crime since realignment but violent crime has remained fairly steady). Meredith Williams, an assistant professor of sociology at Humboldt State University, also cautions that crime data can, in essence, become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Sometimes, data will indicate that a certain city or neighborhood has a high crime rate, which will cause police to focus extra attention there to address the problem, resulting in more arrests and more crime reports, which will drive the crime rate up even further. On the national level, Williams said the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ Crime Victimization Survey may be the best gauge of crime rates. For the survey, the bureau collects data from a sample of about 90,000 households, questioning all residents over the age of 12 about the frequency, characterization and consequences of crime in the United States. The bureau uses the continued on next page

“It was astounding how many of those (crime victims) were people engaging in risky behaviors,” he said. “When you look at it overall, many of Eureka’s violent crimes involve people who engage in those types of behaviors. In other words, if you sell dope, you have to understand your chances of having a home invasion robbery go up. If you pick up a prostitute, not only do your risks of venereal disease go up, but your risk of becoming a robbery victim goes up as well.” But that’s clearly only part of the problem, Mills said, noting that 45 percent of Eureka’s violent crimes in 2012 were aggravated assaults, many of which he said were situations where an argument turned violent. “We seem to have a lot of people who don’t have the capacity to deal with interpersonal conflict, for whatever reason,” he said. Mills, a relative newcomer to Humboldt, having taken over EPD just a couple of months ago, said he’s also struck by an “underground, outlaw” culture in Humboldt that he thinks may contribute to Eureka’s crime problems. When it comes to property crime, local law enforcement officials pointed to a host of contributing factors. “The research would suggest that with drug addiction comes property crime,” Mills said. “We certainly have plenty of addiction here.” Downey pointed to the economy. “Especially with the crimes of convenience, I think we’re looking at a population that’s depressed economically,” he said, adding that the depressed economy also leaves cash-strapped local governments with fewer officers on the streets. “I think there’s a correlation between the two.” continued on next page

If you believe Williams’ theory that community togetherness is the best gauge of community safety, then Lingle’s idea seems to have some merit. If nothing else, it might make people feel safer. And, ultimately, Williams believes perception might be just as important as reality. “Maybe that’s what matters more than the actual crime rate,” she said. “Do you feel safe walking to the corner market?

It’s just so intense. It’s relentless and we’re surrounded by it.” There may be other factors locally too. “When people look at their environment and see disorder, that causes fear,” Mills said. More closed businesses, dilapidated buildings, trash in the streets, homeless people and transients milling about and drug addicts roaming downtown can all impact a person’s feeling of safety. “That can make things feel worse than they are,” Mills said.

Before You Stiff Your Server By Jennifer Savage
Are you in America? You should tip. At least 15 percent, 20 percent if you’re civilized and financially comfortable enough. Can’t do math? There’s an app for that. 2. Did your server a.) spit in your food in front of you? b.) use a racist term in addressing you? c.) lean over and grab your breast? d.) something equally heinous? e.) all the above? No? Then you should tip. If any of the above did happen, not only should you not tip, you should immediately stand up and demand to see the manager. You should also utilize social media to bring the motherfucker down. 3. Are you considering stiffing due to the quality of the food or the amount of time it took to arrive? That’s likely not the server’s fault. If the food isn’t to your satisfaction, don’t go back. If you walk into a crowded restaurant or bar, understand you have agreed to wait — if you don’t want to wait, Humboldt has no lack of other restaurants and bars that would love your business. If the service is definitively and truly mediocre, you may reduce the tip to 10 percent — but you should still tip. (Your bad mood is not an excuse. The waiter is not your jerk boyfriend or smarmy boss.) As a former cocktail waitress, food server, bartender and barista, I would also like to offer this bit of advice to everyone in those fields who doesn’t already know it: No matter how busy you are, try to make eye contact, preferably with a smile, with the individuals waiting. Often, when overwhelmed, bartenders in particular will ignore new customers until they can fully turn their attention to them. But a little acknowledgment goes a long way — if people feel noticed, they’re much happier to wait around. They can see you’re busy, after all. But if your potential customers feel invisible, that means they also feel slighted, and will likely leave and not return.
4. Are you planning to stiff your server as a statement against the practice of tipping, which, one could argue, is an unfair and inconsistent way to reward people for doing their job? You should still tip. Sure, it doesn’t make much sense, a system in which opening a bottle of beer equals the same dollar on the bar as making a perfect Manhattan. Nor does a waiter serving overpriced fine dining meals necessarily work harder than a waitress slinging hash, but the former makes more money due to the percentage system. Understood. But, for anything less than gross misconduct, failure to tip is akin to stealing money from your server’s paycheck — the federal government allows servers to be paid less than minimum wage on the assumption that they make up the difference in tips. Until our whole system changes, make your stand elsewhere — and tip. 5. Are you ever going back to that restaurant, coffee house or bar? Because once you establish yourself as a cheapskate, the service isn’t going to improve. You may think you’re teaching someone a lesson, but what you’re doing is encouraging staff to care less about you at best and sabotage your experience at worst. Even when the experience is truly bad, angering the people who are making and serving your food is never a good idea, at least if you want to eat it. Just be a decent human and tip. BONUS: What if you failed to bring enough to tip? Oh, this is awkward and best avoided. But if you find yourself stuck in this situation, prevent adding insult to injury by being honest. Tell the server you underestimated the bill and don’t have enough to tip properly. Promise to return and take better care of him or her next time. Then do so. If this happens when you’re traveling or otherwise unable to return, tip big the next time, wherever you are, in hopes that karma is real and your attempt to balance wrongs and rights pays off. ●

CAP’N ZACH’S CRAB HOUSE good heart surgeon. In the end, I left my chulo before I could poison him off with other dishes. I hope he has found a nice girl who can cook by now. As for me, whenever I’m in the mood, I make a run to the refrigerator case at WinCo. There, next to the soft Casero cheese and below the cheap dollar burritos, it sits waiting, bulging in its plastic casing, begging for release. “It’s been a while,” I say. And so the dance begins again.

Chorizo con papas Chorizo fried with potatoes. Serves two. CHORIZO, LIKE LOVE, IS FILLED WITH MYSTERY. AND LARD. PHOTO CREDIT LINDA STANDSBERRY
Chorizo: A Love Story By Linda Stansberry firstname.lastname@example.org
o set the record straight, I wasn’t trying to murder my ex per se. But he deserved it for cracking a joke with his Poblano buddies that American women only know how to take food out of the freezer and stick it in the microwave. What did he think he was getting when he chose a gringa who only owned one frying pan? Pendejo. “Give up, chula, please give up,” he moaned, clutching his stomach. It was after that second failed attempt at making carnitas from scratch that I turned the cooking over to him. Sucker. Handmade tamales for me? Yes, please. But then I discovered chorizo. Oh, chorizo, every time I think I’m out, you suck me back in. The burnt sienna color stuffed into a blunt, little plastic tube with dots of pure lard winking out from the packaging, your ingredient list at once sincere and disturbing — pork salivary glands, lymph nodes and cheeks, ground with a handful of seasonings and a dash of sodium nitrate. That’s what’s in it, say the unconverted with a shudder, but what is it? Is it a sausage or a condiment or a slurry of byproducts? To which I say: yes.
It’s hard to describe the sound that chorizo makes when you slide it out of its packaging onto a hot frying pan. It sounds something like, sloooomph, followed by a sizzle and a dizzying sensation in your olfactory glands. All senses ignited, you watch the fat become molten and roll over each added ingredient in a tsunami of greasy flavor. All you do is stir and watch the heat. The grease and spices saturate everything in their path, a force of nature. Chorizo is the Chuck Norris of meat products. Chorizo does not “mix.” Chorizo happens. My mastery of chorizo didn’t tie me to la raza, but when my baby got home and sniffed the air, his eyes filled with a strange glimmer — a mixture of hope and homesickness. I filled his plate twice and he ate every bite. The next night I cooked up the same, and the night after. A week later, the bloom was off the rose, and I got to put my feet up again while he cooked arroz con pollo. Chorizo, as it turns out, tastes of shame to some people. Delicious shame. It’s an end-of-the-month-goingto-get-paid-in-a-few-days kind of food. Some of the best foods are (menudo, anyone?). If you’re eating it every day, it means you need to find a job and/or a
Ingredients and method: 4-5 small red-skinned potatoes, chopped into quarters 1 tube chorizo 1 bunch green onions, chopped into 1-inch pieces 1/2 cup chopped mushrooms 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 cup grated cheese (cheddar or jack) 1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped 4 corn or flour tortillas
Bayfront Restaurant One F Street, Eureka, CA 443-7489 Open Daily 11-9:30pm | BayfrontRestaurant.net
Optional: 2 eggs avocado sour cream Quarter the potatoes and steam them until slightly tender. This increases their absorbency. Add olive oil to the frying pan on low heat. Sautee the chopped green onions for 1-2 minutes. Cut open the chorizo and squeeeeeeeze it into the pan. Immediately use a fork to mash the chorizo into something resembling food, for aesthetics and even heat distribution. As the chorizo begins to cook, slap it often with flat of a spatula. When it begins to bubble and pop, add the potatoes and mushrooms. Do not worry about overcooking chorizo! Worry about undercooking it! As long as the heat is low and you keep stirring it, the chorizo will not burn. Let its flavor insinuate itself into all added ingredients. When it’s gone crunchy around the edges of the pan, turn the heat off and sprinkle the mixture with cheese. Serve in tortillas garnished with cilantro, avocados and sour cream. For a breakfast version, add a couple of eggs into the mixture right after the potatoes, stir and fry well. l

Pictures of Lily
Judging a band by the looks of it By Jennifer Savage
You can tell by the photo that Humboldt County will love Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys. She’s adorable, like the girl you had a crush on in grade school. The guys are attractive and sincere-looking in that way that only young people wearing natural fibers can be. The beards probably do not keep them from being carded when they’re trying to buy a post-gig beer. Stringed instruments. Also, they’re playing at Hum Brews, a venue with a well-deserved reputation for booking only excellent acts. Soundwise, as expected, Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys serve up traditional American music that brings forth such adjectives as “distinct, tight, expert and creative.” Lindsay Lou Rilko’s tunes include truelife tales of bank-robbing aunties and moonshinin’ grandpas, plus references to dancing in the kitchen, daffodils and dreams. Tickets are $10 at the door, which opens around 9 p.m. Show’s 21-and-over.
Quick note for reggae (and music history) fans — Bob Marley: The Making
of a Legend screens at Arcata Theatre Lounge. See elsewhere in the Journal for more details.
We get emails. Sometimes they look like this: “Hi, I’m Trey from Secret Chiefs 3. … It’s not the most famous band in the world, but we do sell out the Great American Music Hall in SF and similar venues across the USA, Europe, Australia and Latin America. We’ve never played Humboldt, but I grew up there. There’s actually a long, deep history of the roots there (I was in a band called Mr. Bungle that began life in Eureka). Anyway, SC3

tours internationally a LOT, in a lot of off-the-beaten-track places — it’s a very unusual niche, but works across many borders. I visit Eureka often and it occurred to me that that’s a border we’ve never crossed! Well, it’s happening. … Maybe it could be something. Thanks!” Mr. Bungle … Mr. Bungle … Oh, right! I think I’ve heard of them. Ahem. For those who haven’t followed Trey Spruance’s post-Bungle career, Secret Chiefs 3 is an instrumental concept project that has earned rave reviews in Pitchfork, among others, and prompted descriptions such as “goes into uncharted musical territory.” In their photo, the all-male, sevenmember band is dressed all in PHOTO COURTESY OF THE ARTISTS
black and boasting a variety of facial hair styles. The presumed leader sports a black beanie. Only his eyes are visible, all furrowed-brow and looking into the distance — into those uncharted territories, we imagine. The image screams experimental. Gig starts at Hum Brews around 9:30 p.m., tickets are $15.
Meanwhile, the Mateel Community Center presents an evening of African folk by Zimbabwe’s Oliver Mtukudzi & The Black Spirits. A member of the Kore Kore tribe, Mtukudzi sings in the nation’s dominant Shona language in addition to Ndebele and English. He also incorporates elements of different musical traditions resulting in a personal style known as “Tuku Music.” In the press photo, he’s seated, a look on his face like he’s listening, but his posture clearly indicates he’s willing to tell you a story. Friendly. You can tell he’s a man who smiles a lot and whom you should take seriously. To illustrate that point, Mtudkudzi not only sings about social issues, but his own social activism has

earned him many awards at home and internationally. One highlight occurred when, in 2010, the University of Zimbabwe and The International Council of Africana Womanism recognized him for his luminary role in uplifting African women through his artistic work. Bonnie Raitt fans may have heard her cover “Hear me Lord.” Raitt also credits Mtukudzi as the inspiration for the song “One Belief Away” on her album Fundamental. Tickets are available at the usual outlets and online, and are $22 in advance and $25 at the door. Show at 7 p.m. Oh, Strix Vega. One of Humboldt County’s most enduring bands and for good reasons. They’re talented, they’re attractive and the trio’s repertoire has grown to contain both long-form instrumental intricacies for music nerds and lush sing-alongables for those of us more hook-inclined. Joining them is Oakland’s Muncie, who comes advertised as purveyors of “soul twang.” They look real nice in the stunningly smiley photo adorning the top of their Soundcloud page and the songs served up do have some twang, that is true. This gig is at the Alibi, so it’ll start after 11 p.m. Cover’s $5 and yes, you must be of legal drinking age or older.
One more highlight before we leave you: Corinne West with Jeri Jones and Pam Delgado of Blame Sally land in the Arcata Playhouse. Known as “The Siren of the Sierras,” West’s voice invokes angels, if angels had a dangerous side. With her long, dark tresses and unsmiling visage, you know she’s serious about taking you

Labor misses, Awkward aims low By John J. Bennett firstname.lastname@example.org
LABOR DAY. At first it seemed odd that a movie by Jason Reitman (Young Adult, Up in the Air) would be relegated to the dumping ground of mid-winter release. Reitman’s become something of a prestige director in recent years, gathering up commercial success, critical accolades and major award nominations along the way. But as I watched Labor Day, the apparent lack of confidence on the part of its distributors started to make sense: this uneasy blend of period-melodrama and psychological realism is definitely not for everyone. I admire the intention here, and it would appear to be something of a passion project for Reitman — he adapted the screenplay from the novel by Joyce Maynard — but the movie never rises to the level of its ambition. Adele (Kate Winslet), single mother of young Henry (Gattlin Griffith), has become so cripplingly depressed that she rarely leaves the house. Her depression— or rather his inability to cope with it—we learn later on, is what led to the dissolution of her marriage to Gerald (Clark Gregg). On one of their monthly shopping trips, Henry is approached by an agitated, bleeding man asking for help. Adele tries to politely refuse, but ultimately she’s powerless in the situation and agrees to first give the stranger a ride, and then hide him in her house. He, Frank (Josh Brolin), turns out to be a convicted murderer who
has escaped from a nearby penitentiary by jumping from a second-story window while recovering from surgery. Despite, or perhaps because of, the circumstances, Frank, Adele and Henry soon develop a rapport. Frank keeps house, changes the oil in the station wagon and teaches Henry how to hit a baseball. Through elliptical flash-backs, we learn a little of his backstory, and it becomes clear that the reserved mother and son are not only harboring him from the law, but filling a pronounced, long-standing void in his life. Soon enough, he and Adele have fallen in love and begun forming a plan to flee to Canada. Caught in the maelstrom of all this craziness, Henry is faced with the frightening, looming prospect of puberty, his strained relationship with his father and a burgeoning relationship with a darkly precocious new girl in town. Again, I admire the intentions of Labor Day, but the novelistic explorations of absence, sadness and fulfillment it attempts don’t pay off in the end. Winslet is convincing in her portrait of Adele as constantly rattled and afraid of the world, but the construction of her character is notably stronger than any of the others. Brolin does fine work as Frank, but there isn’t enough to the character to build a real relationship with the audience. And he speaks in a strange, overly mannered way that borders on distracting.
MovieTimes Henry is ostensibly the center of the narrative, and it’s primarily from his perspective that we watch it unfold. That is the movie’s greatest, most unfortunate shortcoming. Griffith is a talented young actor, and Reitman directs him to an authentic, open performance. But there just isn’t enough for him to do. The voice-over intones that he is preoccupied by the new specter of sex in his life, and he lies awake at night, listening to Adele and Frank’s voices ebb into lovemaking. But Henry’s perspective is never fully elucidated — despite his presence as an adult narrator — and the script fails to let him show us what it feels like to be a sensitive boy in the midst of such trying circumstances. Despite its failures in character development and perspective, Labor Day is still pretty to look at, emotionally involving and replete with mid-late 1980s production design. The cast is excellent across the board, and the storytelling seems to come from a perspective of genuine sensitivity and care. But by the end, as it slides completely into saccharine resolution, it is distinguished more by its failures than its successes. PG13. 111m. THAT AWKWARD MOMENT. They keep trying to reinvent the 20-something relationship comedy and I’m not sure why. This, like so many similar attempts, only comes off as derivative, pandering and simplistic. That Awkward Moment is also an unsexy sex comedy, which is beyond pointless. To its credit, That Awkward Moment does boast a talented, likeable primary cast. Zac Efron is the cute cad who may have finally found love and doesn’t know how to handle it. Michael B. Jordan is the successful doctor whose “perfect” marriage is on the outs. Miles Teller is the goofball/unlikely Lothario falling for his longtime wing-woman. They live in New York City and it’s all very romantic and they drink a lot. The result plays more like a long-form commercial for J. Crew and Tecate than a movie. R. 94m. — John J. Bennett
LEGO MOVIE. Lego pulls out all the blocks for an all-character adventure that looks like a plastic version of Comic Con. PG. 100m. MONUMENTS MEN.
