HumCPR Insights Editor: This week’s cover story on HumCPR (“HumCPR Rising,” March 28) was extraordinarily well written — especially given the limited access provided by one of the principal subjects of the story. I was impressed by the way his caution of the interview was presented without belittlement. I stayed up late just to read through the story. I served with Lee Ulansey on the Eureka Planning Commission until my term expired last December. I have to say that he was my favorite fellow commissioner. He and I have divergent views on many issues, but I find Lee to be articulate, thoughtful and, at least on the surface, willing to hear differing points of view from me without a fight. We occasionally altered the other’s position on matters. I found my discussions with Lee to be very engaging and thought-provoking. It will be very interesting to see how he performs at the county level. On a separate note, I have detected a real sea-change in both the nature of stories being covered and the quality of the
writing that appears in the Journal. I wish to commend you for objective reporting and a decrease in sensationalism and foul language for its own sake. (Contrast this with Barry Evans’ current column, which relies on the F word to provide an actual quote representing a smart retort.) I appreciate the work you are doing. Stephen Avis, Eureka Editor: Kudos to the Journal and to Ryan Burns for the most comprehensive analysis of current Humboldt County politics. Terence Marlow, Trinidad Editor: As Ryan Burns pointed out in his interesting article, the concept of property rights involves quite complicated issues. Yet many people who style themselves as property rights champions seem to think it’s pretty cut and dried. Depending on their own political orientation, anyone who disagrees with them is either a socialist or a fascist. On the other hand there really is a school of thought among environmentalists that advocates city life for the vast majority of humans and restriction of population in rural areas. I recognize their excellent reasons for this kind of thinking, but I have many reservations and objec-
tions. I can see how rural residents may see certain government policies — the Williamson Act and TPZ zone regulations — as a slippery slope. This is a fascinating, crucial debate to be having right now. I’d like to ask participants to conduct it fairly. Be honest and aboveboard about your motivations and investments. Respect those on the other side. Articulate your reasons for what you believe. Humboldt County’s newest supervisor has already fallen short of my hopeful expectations. When Anne Lindsay addressed the transportation planning part of the General Plan update with a health impact assessment — linking increased vehicle use to lack of exercise — Estelle Fennell declared herself to be “insulted.” She added that she wanted to see far less of this insulting-ness in “everything that we do in this county.” Instead of simply stating her reasons for disagreement, she seemed to suggest that certain kinds of information should never even be aired in her presence. This is not the rigorous, open-minded discussion we need. I guess it’s instinctive to fly to the fortress walls when our individual interests seem threatened, but we’re all in trouble if we can’t expand our outlook to include the health of the environment. Martha Walden, Westhaven
Bowling Memories Editor: The bowling article (“For the Love of Bowling,” March 21) revived some very old memories. I took a bowling class at Portland State. I told the owner of the bowling alley that I would help take care of the alley if he taught me how to bowl and let me bowl free. He agreed. Months later Portland State held an intramural tournament and some bowling team members entered. I bowled a remarkable 649 (three games) and won by 39 pins. A young woman finished third and had entered because her boyfriend bowled. We became friends and started entering mixed doubles tournaments, winning enough prize money to pay our entry fee and other expenses. We won the last tournament I bowled with her. Very nice sendoff as “Lefty” (nickname) Jan got married the following weekend and moved to St. Louis. We both had entered the singles competition with limited success. Three weeks later I entered a singles tournament in San Francisco, only to bowl worse than bad. This became the reality straw. Sure, I was good but not that good. I saw dollar bills rather than bowling pins, and my college grades were going to hell in a hand basket. I drove to the north end

of the Golden Gate Bridge, parked and started walking across bridge with bowling ball in hand. After checking for boats below, I tossed ball over the railing. A dramatic end to tournament bowling. I eventually got a new ball and have done recreational bowling only a few times. Amazingly, the fun in bowling started to return. Do I have regrets? Yes. I still chide myself for letting bowling almost disastrously become more important than education. However, I wish I physically could still bowl with friends and once
again enjoy the fun of a great activity. Bruce Haston, Trinidad
Audit CR! Editor: College of the Redwoods is out of touch with the community (“CR Faces the Music,” Blog Jammin, March 14). The cuts of classes and faculty while adding remedial classes at the expense of viable classes are an example of that. The music
program and theater art department have NOT been losing money. In fact, they are putting valuable money resources into the school. So have many of the other classes that are slated to be cut. In the business world, money has to be handled wisely and not cut products and resources. The CR board and administration has and are mishandling their resources. I want Cartoon by joel mielke a financial audit of the school after the last two presidents left. Was everything done legally? Maybe instead a golden handshake, they should have been given the golden boot. The expansion of the pilot programs into other areas took away from the main school. Sell the satellite buildings and cancel leases in little-used outlying areas. Focus on the main campus. Don’t build new buildings and then cut classes. Put money into the existing buildings and existing classes while adding more advanced classes. Don’t cut classes and layoff fac-
ulty. More classes, more students, more money. CR board and administration: Listen to your community. Alvis Lang, Eureka
Kids: Enviro-Disaster Editor: In California you can’t seem to bring your dog anywhere, and everywhere you do, they must be leashed (“Unleashed,” March 7). You can’t tie your dog up on a street and you can’t leave your dog in a car. I guess you have to leave them at home? Do you have to be a landowner to be able to let your dog run? The beach is one of the last refuges for a dog to be free in California, and of course people are going to complain. I don’t like seeing anything captive, so my dog is almost never on a leash. He is completely voice trained and the only thing he likes to chase is his ball. I will admit that I see a lot of people who don’t know how to train their dogs. (If you’re calling your dog and they’re running the other way, you have some work to do.) But how often do you see children acting up? You want to complain about the environmental damage my dog is incurring? How about your children? My dog is my continued on next page

Today’s Lesson: Sharing
does not allocate enough specialized classroom space to the charter school.” The charter school is requiring special education classrooms, art/music classrooms, technology labs and indoor fitness space, also non-teaching space such as administrative offices, multipurpose room, gym space, staff lounge, cafeteria, nurse’s office, parking, playfields, library and kitchen, with a copy room and a teacher/ lunch space, too. I don’t see an empty school when I walk the halls of South School. I see full classrooms, hallways full of kids, and no empty space. Trying to fit another school into this campus is not in the best interest of our children. John Miller, Fortuna

In Praise of Giving
It is designed to be a selfless act encouraging community thinking and involvement. I would request that a retraction be printed. An apology to all persons of our community who give much of their fixed incomes, visit people in hospitals and prisons, take food to single parents, and selflessly give to charities. But especially an apology is needed to that particular lady who for more years than we can count has been making “brown sack lunches” and giving them to more than 200 people she has personally befriended.

Thanks NCJ, Sorry Isom Editor: I want to thank you for your “Dear School Trustees” editorial (Dec. 13, 2012), which I read and saved. Good thing, too, for once again Jon Isom is beating the parcel tax drum here in Southern Humboldt. Really, Jon, since when do new buildings guarantee an education? Reduce dropout rates? Guarantee my child will be admitted into a university, let alone graduate? Help my child find meaningful employment and a purpose-filled life? Think hard, Jon. It isn’t new buildings which inspire young minds. It is and always has been the staff — those with frozen wages, added duties, and overcrowded classrooms, facing layoff notices during every school budget review. Of course, Jon, you have thousands pillaged for consulting fees, for orchestrating community sell-the-bond campaigns and for transaction fees with every bond series sold. Isom Advisors of Walnut Creek, whose parent company is Urban Futures of Tustin, Calif., must be making killing. In June 2010, Northern Humboldt High School District alone vowed to pay Isom Advisors $70,000 for each bond series sold. More than teachers earn in a year. But what about those on fixed incomes — the seniors, the disabled, the minimum-wage earners, the single parents? Can most of us really afford higher property taxes, which instantly translate to raised rents? What does one sacrifice to pay tax increases — groceries, heat, medicine? Last October, J.N. Sbranti wrote in the Modesto Bee that before assuming a debt, taxpayers should know “how much for how long?” But getting these financial details isn’t always easy, because “Bond promoters typically skip the financial specifics when pitching the benefits of fixing up and building schools. Here’s why: sticker shock.” The cost can be staggering, and “the debt can linger for generations.” Enough is enough. Time to just say, “No!” No to more taxes. No to more debt. Cheri Porter-Keisner, Piercy
Beware the Police State Editor: On Oct. 18, the Journal reported that Project Censored determined the expanding police state tops the list of underreported stories by the mainstream media. The militarization of our police has dramatically increased. Yes, here in Humboldt County. Recently, Carrie Peyton Dahlberg, your editor, was bullied and intimidated for trying to photograph a safe crime scene in a public place. Clearly legal. Kimberly Starr, better known as Verbena, and James Decker, have four small claims lawsuits in process against the EPD and the City of Eureka. The lawsuits are about violating their civil rights during the Occupy Eureka Protests. They were trying to video what they considered overreaction, bullying and intimidation by local law enforcement. The City of Eureka is in the process of selecting a new police chief by July 1. We need to make sure there is more transparency and accountability. The Human Rights Commission is still trying to take out the parts of the “Urgency Ordinance,” passed by the Board of Supervisors, that criminalize dissent. Suppression of dissent keeps people from speaking out. HSU hosted the first “Criminal Justice Dialogue” on March 28-29. This was mostly about how incarceration affects communities and rehabilitation. A good start. How about a series of forums to involve the whole community in dealing with these urgent and important issues? NCJ, we need you! Jim Paquin, McKinleyville
Word Lovin’ Editor: Thanks to Pat Dillman for her comments about word accuracy usage in the NCJ (“Watch Your Words,” Mailbox, March 28). I have noticed numerous inaccurate use of words and even misspellings. Please help these writers to use proper terminology. If in doubt, check it out. Thanks for pressing on to publish this newspaper each week! Have a great day! Peter Mosgofian, Arcata

Political Reality 2013
e often read in news articles that so-and-so couldn’t be reached for comment. Well, sometimes a reporter just doesn’t try very hard. Sometimes we’re even glad when our phone calls aren’t returned, truth be told. But I want Journal readers to know how hard we tried to get an interview with our new Humboldt County Planning Commissioner Lee Ulansey, the subject of last week’s cover story, “HumCPR Rising.” Staff writer Ryan Burns asked more than a dozen times over a period of weeks. I finally offered to help and gave it my best to convince Ulansey in a personal email exchange. The interview could be taped and posted on our website, we suggested. The answer still came back no. It’s tough to do a story on a person who refuses to be interviewed. Tough, but
not impossible, as Ryan demonstrated. The article has been praised by many — even by a friend of Ulansey’s — as being fair, accurate, insightful and connecting a lot of dots. Ryan listed some questions in his story he would have liked to ask Ulansey, mostly about his personal political organizing (along with O&M Industries owner Rob McBeth) ever since HumCPR was founded in 2007. As Ryan documented, the duo has had a remarkable string of successes, having backed now four of the five members of the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors and four of the five members of the Eureka City Council. I had some questions of my own after our email exchange. How does Ulansey reconcile his passionate belief in “transparent government” with the fact that he founded a political action organization

that over the last two election cycles helped capture super majorities on the two largest, most influential political bodies in the county? This shadowy group has pretty much zero transparency as a private, for-profit corporation. (Ulansey claims 4,000 members, but I think he’s counting those who sign up online for HumCPR newsletters. In that case, the Journal is now a member.) HumCPR has no list of members available (the old one has been removed from its website), no public meetings, a locked office on Fifth Street in Eureka, and currently no executive director. Yet HumCPR, with two active lawsuits against the county, is responsible for pretty much hijacking the General Plan Update (after 11 years of public process, the public is now excluded from the meetings of the ad hoc committee “advising” the county supervisors) and
the ouster of former Planning Director Kirk Girard. And here’s another question: Who exactly wrote the checks for Supervisor Estelle Fennell’s salary as executive director of HumCPR for three years before she became county supervisor? (Fennell also declined to be interviewed but gave a few comments via email.) I love advocacy groups. I joined one myself last year called the Bay Trail Advocates (www.baytrailplan.org). Every member is listed with our contact information on the website. I belong to other, more sophisticated organizations that raise money to fund all kinds of good causes, like Planned Parenthood. They are nonprofits, run by boards of directors who are elected, with financial transparency and accountability. HumCPR’s only accountability is to its wealthy donors. How many are there and who are they? HumCPR may not have 4,000 members but it has spent an enormous amount of money that now influences the daily and weekly politics of Humboldt. Just last
week as we were going to press, county supervisors voted (4-1, of course) to appoint former Eureka City Manager David Tyson to the UpState RailConnect Committee instead of the eminently more qualified retired Humboldt County Public Works Director John Murray. (Does the county want a darn smart engineer who has a lifetime of experience in building massive public works projects, or does it want a committed east-west-yes rail advocate who is already representing other overlapping, redundant organizations?) Perhaps more stunning last week was a decision, in special session on Good Friday, by the Eureka Council members. They did what some of them said they wouldn’t do: Voted to use public money to study an east-west rail line. For more than a year we have been told by east-westers, Tyson included, that private money existed to do this study — and likely to build it because it would be such an attractive and successful business venture. There is no doubt that the feasibility study is a priority of this council, but the council’s
flip flop (again, 4-1) on using public money should be raising eyebrows. And so should the manner in which the council members did it — calling an emergency session on Thursday for Good Friday when anyone who might oppose was either at work or out of town for the holiday or just plain unaware that this expense was being considered. (The council voted to use $17,500 in “staff time” to match a grant from the newly minted “Land Bridge Alliance,” yet another east-west-yes group. The staff time will be used to apply for a $295,000 grant from Caltrans.) Eventually these council members and supervisors will have to stand for re-election. When they do, let’s be sure to ask them a lot of questions about decisions they are making today, and money and time they are spending. In the meantime, we’ll all just have to live with the new political reality. l

BIRDS, CURIOSITIES / BY HEIDI WALTERS / MARCH 29, 4:08 P.M.
Man About Town Jack Lincoln is one of the latest strutting habitués of the brick sidewalk in front of Old Town Coffee & Chocolates in Eureka. Handsome, too: blue head, changeable neck — it goes creamy white when he’s content, says his person, Nick, and red when he’s excited (equally with anger, happiness or lust). On this sunny afternoon, Jack, an 11-month-old Rio Grande wild turkey, was participating in a strange feather-shaking dance with passersby. One man decided to cha-cha-cha with Jack, and around and around they stamped and shivered their butts, eyeing each other with ceremony. With every tail shake came, insisted Nick, a “bonnnngggg” sound, a bass wave, issuing from Jack’s belly and booming out the dish-like spread of his tail. “It’s a sign of health,” Nick said. It’s a sign that Jack thinks all the twoleggeds around him are an extension of his turkey tribe. After dancing with the man, Jack repeatedly sidled up to a woman in a short green dress and green rubber boots. She cut a few tight circles with the bird, then left. Next he sidled up repeatedly to a woman in black pants and brown leather boots, and finally pecked her left leg softly then reared up to hump it. Nick pulled Jack away, several times, picked him up and cuddled his feath-

ery bulk. Put him down. The sidling and humping resumed. He’s named, Nick said, after the turkey whom President Abe Lincoln granted a reprieve from slaughter for the family’s holiday meal after Lincoln’s boy Tad cried to spare him. Nick has eight other turkeys; sometimes he’ll herd them in a group about town. And they all, in a sense, are pardoned birds. They won’t be slaughtered for eating. In fact, it is Nick’s wish to develop a domesticated house turkey breed, one that can be house-trained and, presumably, taught some general pet-like manners and mores. Now, though, he’s got a more pressing problem. “I have 30 eggs I have to either incubate, sell or eat,” he said. ● MARIJUANA / BY BOB DORAN / MARCH 29, 2:59 P.M.

Arcata Police Officer Kevin Stonebarger is no longer employed with the Arcata Police Department. As readers might recall, Stonebarger was involved in a verbal rumpus over a parking space in February 2012, outside Pho Tien Long restaurant in Eureka, where he and other members of the drug task force were having lunch. APD Chief Tom Chapman would not say whether Stonebarger was terminated or left of his own accord. An internal investigation into the incident had concluded Stonebarger committed several violations of conduct, including using a badge inappropriately, being rude to the public and overstepping his authority as a peace officer when he threatened to arrest a tow truck driver — who was trying to haul away another agent’s vehicle that occupied the space — and the owner of the parking space — who was lawfully trying to record the events, which were taking place in public. Stonebarger was taken off the drug task force and reassigned. He filed a claim against the city refuting the conclusion of the investigation and saying he lost his position as a firearms instructor at College of the Redwoods because of the investigation. (The investigation report can be viewed in the claim document.) The city rejected the claim this January. There was talk Stonebarger would file a lawsuit. ● BUSINESS, FRIVOLITY / BY HEIDI WALTERS / MARCH 26, 12:49 P.M.

the same company as Marshall’s) has been written up as a successful sourcer in quality brands. Even so, this news likely ain’t as exciting as a new Wal-Mart coming to town. Well, T.J., welcome to Eureka — and to the pending minimum wage showdown. ● ACTIVISM / BY ANDREW GOFF / MARCH 26, 12:34 P.M.
Local Planned Parenthood labeled ‘The Worst’ The Eureka arm of the 40 Days For Life campaign, the human prayer shield camped out in front of Six Rivers Planned Parenthood since Feb. 13, wrapped up operations on Sunday, March 24. Done. (For previous Journal coverage of the prayer-a-thon, see-eth our website.) So what did we learn? Be careful what you sign up for. Early on in the saga, the Journal signed up for the 40 Days For Life daily newsletters. Then, for 40 straight days we received emails sent out by campaign director Shawn Carney through its headquarters in Fredericksburg, Va. Most of the daily blasts chronicled movement successes and inspirational anecdotes culled from reports from the many encampments around the world — the final number of babies saved they’re goin’ with is 554, by the way. But finally, on Day 38, Eureka got its moment in the spotlight. In an email titled “They’re back!” 40 Days of Life warned its followers about efforts to undermine the campaign’s message and highlighted Clergy for Choice and Six Rivers Planned Parenthood as “the worst of the lot.” Their crime? Mocking God. The aforementioned section of the email follows: Subject: DAY 38: They’re back Dear Andrew, Lots of people love the peaceful approach of 40 Days for Life and see how God has used this effort. BUT … it comes as no surprise to find out that not everybody is a fan. There are people in the abortion industry who call this campaign “40 Days of Harassment.” No one is being harassed, of course (except maybe the prayer volunteers). The truth is that peaceful prayer on the sidewalk is bad for business. So the pro-abortion side is doing whatcontinued on next page

“Magnolia spring bouquet” (1981) painting by morris graves
On The Lake
The mystic painter Morris Graves and his reclusive life in Humboldt By Bob Doran Excerpts and images from Morris Graves: Selected Letters, edited by Vicki Halper and Lawrence Fong, used by permission of University of Washington Press opposite Jacket photo “Morris Graves with a Tuning Fork” by Dorothy Norman, circa 1955, from the collection of the San Francisco Museum of Art
14 North Coast Journal • Thursday, April 4, 2013 • northcoastjournal.com
n January of 1965 the visionary painter Morris Graves wrote a letter to an old friend in Seattle:
I am now, at last, buying the forest tract of land — near Eureka — which is where I will build a studio and settle. It is a 380-acre tract of virgin forest surrounding a five-acre lake. The forest is magnificent old-growth redwood and white fir and spruce and all the other Pacific forest plants I love to live with, and the little lake is filled with miniature islands which grow miniature salal and blue huckleberry and dwarfed spruce, etc.
Not long after Graves wrote to his mother, Helen: Mother dear - This is just a note in haste to say that on Wednesday the final papers were signed and the new deeds recorded. It’s a terrible tussle to buy something that’s not for sale, and it’s taken three years — as you know — to get the owners to believe that they did want to sell.
He was feeling ecstatic a few months later when he wrote his friend Richard Svare: The land purchase [is] finally signed and sealed, and I am full of joy! Full of tears of joy! Full of joyous tears of joy! The forest lake is unspeakably beautiful, and I can hardly wait for you to see it so that you’ll know so too and know that it has been waiting since the beginning of the emergence of California from the sea for me! Untouched! Undisturbed! Unspeakably serene. Only seeing it (and me cool and calm as rain-freshened moss) will dispel your uneasiness and worry about if it’s right that I have bought it to educe its latent beauty and still look as though it had never been touched by anything but bird’s feet and deer’s toes and raccoon’s tiptoes! … The eight-by-fourteen-foot cabin — in a dark grove of trees by the lake’s shore — is finished. The mile-long road through the forest is finished. I have made a huge raft to paddle about on the lake to groom the little islands and prune out the dead twigs and branches. The climate here is eternal autumn. The sky clears at night sometimes, but the Lake is half obscured by mist all day. I
can hear only bird songs and the soughing of the trees if a summer breeze stirs them and the distant foghorns groaning on the sea coast.
The visionary artist Morris Graves, acclaimed as one of the major figures in American art in the mid-20th century, had found his final home. The enigmatic painter spent the last 30 years of his life in Humboldt and died here, but a scant few knew him. He was almost invisible. By design, he lived a reclusive life dedicated to painting and working in his garden, shunning visitors. A new book, Morris Graves: Selected Letters, takes a deeper look at his seclusion, how he chose Humboldt and how he felt about his art. Some of his correspondence with friends, family and associates is reprinted here. “I paint to evolve a changing language of symbols with which to remark upon the qualities of our mysterious capacities which direct us toward ultimate reality … to verify the inner eye,”
Graves wrote Museum of Modern Art curator Dorothy Miller in 1942, when his work was first shown there. “I find painting a relief from the overwhelming pressure of realization. I shout to relax — I paint to rest.”
Born in 1910, the sixth of eight boys, Graves grew up in the Seattle area, watching birds and learning the names of wildflowers. His life has been chronicled in Deloris Tarzan Ament’s Iridescent Light: The Emergence of Northwest Art and other sources that outline his nomadic ramblings as well as his search for a permanent home. Graves dropped out of high school after his sophomore year, got a job on a ship heading east and explored Japan, China and Manila. He was particularly taken with Japanese aesthetics. He returned to Seattle in his 20s to begin what he saw as his life’s work: being an artist. Bearded, lean and lanky, at 6 foot 4, he cut a striking figure. In 1933, he took top honors at an annual contest at the Seattle Art Museum with a painting of a swan. In all the years that followed, Graves never married. He wrote fond and exuberant letters to male friends. But Graves was a man of his time, and throughout his long life he didn’t speak publicly about his sexuality.
While working for the WPA Federal Art Project in 1939, he met the painter Mark Tobey, 20 years his senior, who taught him new techniques including painting on delicate Chinese paper with tempura. The two artists had a tempestuous relationship, played out in letters that Graves eventually burned, thinking them too personal. Although he spent most of the 1930s traveling and painting, Graves also began his search for a remote and soul-satisfying home. He paid $40 at a tax auction to buy 20 acres on Fidalgo Island near Anacortes, north of Seattle. In 1940 he began work on a house/studio there. Perched on the edge of a cliff with views of the Cascades and Puget Sound, the retreat he called The Rock would be his home until 1947. It was there that he produced some of his most famous work, including the Inner Eye and the Maddened Birds series. Until The Rock, Graves hadn’t sold much work. And he had fallen into reticent ways that lasted all his life, rebuffing gallery owners and museums, needing repeated persuading before agreeing to showings. He resisted at first when Miller from New York’s Museum of Modern Art wanted to include him in a 1942 MoMA show titled, “18 Americans from 9 States.” Eventually he yielded, but downplayed the work in correspondence with Marian Willard of Willard Gallery in New York City, who became his lifelong art dealer and friend. He told her that he sent the MoMa “70 unframed, half-conceived — and far, far less than half-painted things … a heap of half-dreamed-up ideas leaning to the poetic but out of no conviction sufficient to force itself into a language — and coasting on the voiced enthusiasms of friends. I think they prove by their lack of vitality that I’ll never be much of a painter.”
Despite his misgivings, the show was a hit. MoMA ended up buying 11 of his paintings for its permanent collection and everything else he showed sold. He followed that with a solo show at the Willard Gallery and was featured at the prestigious Phillips Memorial Gallery in Washington, D.C. Vanity Fair wrote glowingly of him and his work — all in 1942. Graves shrunk from the attention. He didn’t want to be famous. He wrote to the editor of Vanity Fair complaining, “I consider publicity more than an intrusion. Slight as it has been, it becomes, in the minds of even a few, the threshold of reputation — under such pressure I am rendered vacant. Time would possibly relieve this — but, to avoid obscuring my meaning, I will say that in my very plasm is the need of privacy carried to obscurity.”
Nevertheless, his prominence kept growing. In 1953 Graves, Tobey and fellow painters Guy Anderson and Kenneth Callahan were featured in an extensive 1953 Life magazine piece titled “Mystic Painters of the Northwest.” His place in art history was now solid, freeing him to flirt with departures that would be less well-received, including a sculpture series, “Instruments for a New Navigation,” inspired by U.S. space exploration. All along, Graves kept running up against authorities who didn’t share his worldview. He tried to become a conscientious objector during World War II, and instead spent months in a stockade before a military psychiatrist recognized that he’d never adapt to military life. In 1947, he was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship to study in Japan, but he made it only as far as Hawaii before being refused entry to Occupied Japan. It’s unclear why. But a gay continued on next page northcoastjournal.com • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 2013
continued from previous page draft resister would have had two strikes against him during those years. Graves began trying out a series of homes. There was a cinder block chateau dubbed Careladen, on land he’d bought in Edmonds, Wash. There was Woodtown Manor, an eighteenth-century house outside of Dublin, Ireland. He liked the light in Ireland, mostly because it reminded him of the Northwest, but America was calling him home. In 1957, his brother Wallace Graves wrote him describing what he considered an ideal landing spot: “If I were to define this place where you could remove yourself to, it would be something like this: it would be fairly mountainous, hard to get to by road; … it would be far enough from the present centers of population so that during this century the great increase in population would not reach it in great degree; it would be so contoured that one could own all one could closely see; it would be blessed by Nature not with things which can be converted … but would instead be blessed by a virtue of its own form, a delight in itself.”

Morris Graves had passed through Humboldt in his travels, and liked it enough that he reached out to Floyd Hollenbeck of Holly Realty. In 1962 Hollenbeck helped him find just what he was looking for, a remote wooded area surrounding a lake near Loleta. At the time, Rex and Viola McBride owned the land around Catfish Lake with some partners,

and they had no intention of selling. Convincing them took time. As Graves told the story, the turning point came when Viola, who had studied art, figured out who wanted the place. While on the phone with Hollenbeck, she asked if this was Morris Graves, the artist who painted birds. Yes it was. A deal was crafted. Floyd Hollenbeck’s son Eric (who now

When Graves wrote his mother in mid-1965, his delight seemed unabated. He’d become a Humboldt tree hugger. Something about these great old mature giant trees makes my heart go out to them.

Graves ended up seriously burdened financially after building The Lake. He had mortgage payments to make and had not paid Ibsen anything at all, holding him responsible for cost overruns. He’d stopped painting to focus on the project, so he only had a little income from painting already with his dealers. Friends offered to help him by selling paintings he’d given to them, but at some point living alone in debt just seemed to be too much. In May 1969, Graves wrote to Rex McBride saying, I have, during the past two years, been able to pay off $40,000 of the $70,000 indebtedness. I am worn out by

Richard Gabriele, a painter from Philadelphia, is among the artists who have spent time working at The Lake under a fellowship granted by the Morris Graves Foundation. He has used some Gravesstyle techniques, “a manner of painting from improvisation that I discovered during experiments with color washes on thin handmade Japanese paper, when the interaction of layered pigment suggested the image of a bird.” Gabriele thanks Robert and Desiree Yarber “who generously share the natural beauty and solitude of The Lake. I have had the pleasure of exploring the forest while nourishing the creative force at the heart of my painting process, which is introspective and benefits from the quietude of a secluded environment. “Beyond the benefits of living in such a majestic forest, The Lake is, for me, a symbol of hope because it reflects the victory of Morris Graves, whose way of life in the 20th century demonstrates certain values that are increasingly rare in an age when technology and worldly “HEAD OF BUDDHA” (2013) RICHARD GABRIELE distractions flood our daily lives.” ●

Lake, taking care of the artist’s day-to-day needs and dealing with outsiders. Now in his 60s, Graves sh ifted into a new phase of minimalist paintings of floral arrangements, works with a Zen-like simplicity intended as statements about the nature of beauty. He unpacked the “Instruments of a New Navigation” sculptures and completed them. He continued working in his garden, tending his flowers and manicuring the landscape of The Lake, refining beauty of a different sort. But mostly he enjoyed his solitary life on The Lake, away from the noise and hustle bustle of civilization — and people. His wry view of the town he called home shows in a whimsical census, written in 1997 and found among his letters, which reads in part:

State University was elementary education with a minor in dance, which ﬁt together perfectly when she opened her Arcata-based dance studio in 2006. She has already expanded the school to accommodate her growing number of students. The emphasis is on ballet, but she also offers Latin and Modern Dance. Her students range in age from four years old through high school and up to adults. “The faculty and alumni perform as The Trillium Dance Ensemble,” says Erin. “My older students have grown up to become accomplished dancers and also perform
alone as the Junior Ensemble. The whole studio performs twice annually at HSU’s Van Duzer Theater and at Eureka High School’s auditorium. Erin met her husband Nate McKeever at a reggae event. They were each in the early stages of starting their own companies. Nate’s business is McKeever Energy & Electric. “Murphy’s is amazing,” says Erin. “It is so convenient! Murphy’s carries all the everyday things we may need at the studio. It is just a few strides down the walkway and one of the older students
can zip over for batteries, towels, pens … just anything! I can quickly get something easy and delicious for lunch, and I always see my high school students there too, grabbing a snack. I teach into the evening and when I lock up it is wonderful to have Murphy’s open, just a few steps away.

When the Humboldt Arts Council was first getting going, art enthusiast Sally Arnot invited Graves to participate in a group exhibition. He ended up choosing the local artists for the show. “We became friends after that,” said Arnot in a recent conversation in the offices of Eureka’s Morris Graves Museum of Art. “At some point in the ’90s he decided he wanted to give us his personal collection of art, things he’d collected over the years. He believed his collection needed a permanent home. We literally took all the art at The Lake, wrapped it up in blankets and drove it off in our station wagons. He gave us pieces by [Jean] Arp and Mark Tobey, all sorts of things.” In 1996, when the city offered to sell the arts council the old Carnegie Library for $1, Arnot shifted into serious fundraising mode. (See George Ringwald’s Journal story, “Cheerleader for the Arts” Dec. 30, 1999.) “I’d already approached Robert to see if he’d be interested in helping,” said Arnot. Yarber became co-chair of the committee alongside the artist Floyd Bettiga. Pulling together over $1 million to refurbish the library as a museum took a few years. Arnot’s “Brick Buy Brick” campaign allowed for endless naming rights. Graves and the Graves Foundation gave cash and
more art work of untold value. In January 2000, to honor Graves’ contributions, the Carnegie was officially renamed the Morris Graves Museum of Art. “Morris felt very strongly about the local artistic community,” said Arnot. He loved all the artists. He wanted to save this building.” In December 2000, the museum mounted a retrospective exhibition of Graves’ work, curated by Yarber, titled “Beauty: Seeing Then, Seeing Now, Seeing Beyond.” Earlier that year, a tired Graves wrote a note to Yarber: R. My problem is: I’ve lived too long. Life is no longer fun — or funny. M.

he Tempest is Shakespeare’s last play and in some ways a summation. For one thing it’s a kind of anthology of clips from his greatest hits: there’s the royal treachery of his histories, a romance in a pastoral setting, a philosophical protagonist, spectacle, magic, music and a couple of clowns. It’s rare if not singular that Shakespeare doesn’t base the story on an existing text. Out of numerous sources from reality and literature, his alchemy creates a myth. In it, Prospero uses his learning to command the magic of an uncharted island through the powerful spirit called Ariel, while defending his daughter Miranda against
the animalistic man called Caliban. This myth has fed countless other stories and supplied metaphors for many discussions through the years, just as this play itself has been interpreted and presented on stage in many different ways. As directed by David Hamilton, the production of The Tempest now on stage at North Coast Repertory Theatre in Eureka retains the vague Shakespearian period and imposes nothing significant on the text except perhaps the final image. It’s a thoughtful production but a clear and entertaining one, very accessible to those who’ve never seen the play while providing novel nuance for those who have. It begins with a shipwreck caused by
Prospero’s magic that deposits Italian nobles and their retinue on this island, including men who are part of Prospero’s past as the deposed duke of Milan. They wander to their fates on Calder Johnson’s earthy brown set that is scattered with magical symbols. Scott Malcolm is a Prospero both sad and angry, with a heaviness about him. Kate Haley is an appealing Miranda, easy to imagine with Bobby Bennett’s believable Ferdinand as star-struck lovers. Kenneth Wigley is a convincing Caliban, constricted, tormented and rebellious. In this production Ariel is always accompanied by a retinue of undulating nymphs (Eva Brena, Caitlin Volz, Alyssa Rempel, Caitlin Wik and Tenn J. Wilson) and seems a creature more of earth and sea than the usual depiction of Ariel as a spirit of air and fire. This makes her more kin to Caliban than opposite. In any case, Chyna Leigh makes an arresting Ariel, with strong voice and gravity-defying costume. Her first song is magical, one of the evening’s highlights. Brian Walker as the jester Trinculo and Tyler Egerer as Stephano were funny and skillful in the physical comedy of their two key scenes. They seem so clownish, however, that their conspiracy with Caliban to murder Prospero never seems credible, though Prospero takes it seriously. Ken Klima, Bob Service, Scott Osborn, Pam Service and Annajane Murphy clearly portray the different aspects of the beached nobles, including the ignoble. The diction was crisp and the acting energetic for the first act on opening night, though clarity tended to fade in the second act and several key scenes seemed obscured. Though this is Shakespeare’s shortest play, it played for nearly three hours. The shipwreck and Prospero’s magic show for the newly engaged Miranda and Ferdinand were films by Malcolm DeSoto. They worked technically and cinematically, but seemed to drain some energy from the stage. There was some neat stage magic I won’t give away. Hamilton’s direction did not focus
on the themes of colonialism that some productions do, but they’re in the play and don’t need emphasizing. The earthy emphasis suggests but doesn’t insist on an environmental message, as the island itself suggests the tradition of utopian tales. The biggest addition I detected was at the end, when instead of breaking his magical staff (as he promised), Prospero hands it to Caliban. Caliban is the only character whose fate is not stipulated in the text. All in all, it’s a considered, skillful production. The excellent costumes are by Patricia Hamilton, sound design by Gabriel Groom, makeup by Chyna Leigh. Nathan Emmons was the Shakespeare speech coach. Other actors not already named include Gabriel Butler-Smith and Jeremy Webb. The Tempest plays weekends at NCRT through April 20. I have more thoughts on this play at http://stagematters.blogspot.com. Also of note: Pam Service, who plays Gonzalo, wrote an interesting piece for the Tri-City Weekly on the experience of participating in the production. NCRT has reliably ensured there would be at least one annual North Coast Shakespeare production, but this year there are at least two more to come. Dell’Arte’s summer show will be The Comedy of Errors, and a revived Shakespeare in the Park in Arcata will produce As You Like It and a contemporary play. Auditions for the park productions are on April 6 and 7. More information at www.playsinthepark.org. We sadly note the passing of Sue Bigelow Marsh, a playwright who provided a venue for new work at her Plays in Progress/World Premiere Theatre in Eureka. Especially in the late 1990s it was an exciting place. With its demise as well as HSU cutbacks, a home for new work is conspicuously missing from the North Coast theatrical ecology.

While Adults Play … Discovery Museum offers kids a treat during Arts Alive! By Dev Richards
n eerie serenity has taken over the normally bustling Discovery Museum in Old Town Eureka. It’s after hours now, on the first Saturday night in February, and the lights in the lobby and gift shop have been turned off. Julia Grosby is shuffling through brightly colored paper, sorting it into piles and cutting out rectangles. Cynthia Perez is parceling out pieces of graham crackers and spooning blobs of peanut butter onto paper plates. It is very, very quiet. Outside, occasional passersby stop to press their faces against the window. Outside, grownups are gearing up for another evening of art, music, food and drink, the monthly meander that is Arts Alive! Inside the shadow-drenched museum, Perez and Grosby are gearing up for Kids Alive — an evening of activities, exploration and allergy-friendly snacks for 3- to 12-year-olds. It’s 5:20 p.m. now, and the noise comes in a wave, silence to cacophony within seconds. Kids bolt through the half-door barrier between the museum’s gift shop and exhibit floor, shedding coats and eagerly awaiting nametags, the one hurdle between them and an educational, kinetic wonderland. Perez plasters pink tags on the little ones 5 and younger,
green on those 6 and older. These kids are regulars. They know each other, know their favorite stations and know how much free-play time they have before the first activity begins. Despite the age range, the kids mingle jovially, sharing stations, lining up for the ship with a slide, maneuvering around each other to get to the next exhibit. The two oldest, at 10½ and 11, finish a scavenger hunt in seconds flat, collect their prizes and make a direct line to the Discovery Nursery. “We usually know how everything works here, and we’re like always the older ones here,” says one, as she and her friend rock bizarrely realistic baby dolls in a crib. The two girls tell me they like being the oldest — they can play with the smaller kids, help the grownups and catch up on important preteen things like determining the cutest member of One Direction. As we talk, several kids with pink name tags disembark from the ship and drop anchor in the nursery, capturing the older girls’ attention. The two groups merge and play until Perez rings a triangle at the front of the museum. It’s story time! Every Kids Alive night has a theme, and tonight’s is Dr. Seuss. The 3- to 6-yearolds are being treated to Cat in the Hat, while the older kids enjoy the tongue

twisters of Fox in Socks. Though the older group seems moderately entertained by counting the number of times Perez gets tongue-tied, their unrest eventually squirms to the forefront. A small, lispy voice rises above the tittering to ask, “Are we going to do something funner?!” Honestly, you can’t blame the kid. Sitting at a table filled with arts and craft supplies (paints, glitter, you name it), surrounded by interactive science toys (you guys, there’s a 20 foot ship with a slide!) is not the most conducive environment for reading. Before any more unrest can bubble to the surface, activity time begins: Cat in the Hat masks and Horton Hears a Who ears for everybody! Throughout the evening, as the kids bounce around inside the museum, several adults pop in to ask about vacancies. Grosby smiles and tells them that Kids Alive fills up fast — attendance is capped at 18, and they’re still holding a spot for someone — so it’s best to pay a $5 deposit in advance to hold a place for your child. (The deposit goes toward the $15 fee, which provides fun, food and even a little education from the 5:30 p.m. dropoff time through the 8 p.m. pickup hour.) When the first crafting efforts wind down, the kids break for clean up, some more play time and a snack. Then the two
activity groups switch: masks for the ear gang, ears for the mast crew. The night concludes with more free time, the kids playing with a little more desperation now, knowing the night will soon end. I’ve been waiting all night for one of them to use the Smell Lab, an olfactory guessing game that seemed sure to entertain. But the Water Lab, Shadow Wall and the S.S. Discovery eclipse it. One smiling 4-yearold spends every moment of his free time at the Floating Ball Station, a vertical leaf blower that sends rubber balls flying into the air. As 8 o’clock nears, red-faced parents, either from the wine or the wind, arrive sporadically at first, then in a steadier stream. The youngest kids, grumpy and half-awake, leave with their heads resting on their parent’s shoulders, their craft projects clutched in their tiny hands. Some battle time, pulling parents toward their favorite exhibits, begging for more trips down the slide. Kids, man, they have no idea how much more awesome their childhoods are than the generations before (my generation included). If I were a few years younger, I would have been all over that Smell Lab. ● Dev Richards is allergic to everything and regrets nothing.

Dancing Into Spring By Stephanie Silvia email@example.com
rom students exploring their powers to established artists venturing in new directions, the spring dance season offers two highlights this weekend, with more coming up soon. This Thursday, April 4, at the Van Duzer, the HSU department of theater, film and dance presents On the Edge of Your Feet, an evening of contemporary dances. The university’s dance program has drawn strong performers, many driven to choreograph, and in this performance they inhabit the spaces in dancing where the personal goes public. Coached by Sharon Butcher, director of the dance studies program, choreography students have created works about personal growth and social issues. Among them are In the Void by Carrie Walpole, Best Kept Secret by Kelly-May Rogers, Pieces on the Floor by Dani Gutierrez, and, most intriguing, Mirror Mirror on my Thighs, an unflinching self-examination of body image by Keili Simmons Marble. The cast of this show is a young, athletic group, capable of elevated leg extensions, buoyant jumps and leaps, partnered lifts and rhythmic unisons. The dancers glide toward each other, outward toward the audience and inward toward themselves. Butcher’s students always have a handle on the core components of composition, becoming adept at repetition and variations, the folding and unfolding
of groupings, and a clarity of intention that brings completeness to the shows she directs. These students have also been fortunate to have Laura Muñoz of the Dell’Arte faculty as guest teacher this past semester. Her earthy approach to dance training, all about the bones releasing into the earth, will inform much of the performing we see, most directly in her own new quintet, Living with Thirst. During an audition open to all students, not just dance majors, Muñoz chose “five very different dancers, short, tall, bigger, smaller. I wasn’t looking for something homogeneous.” The performers look like the antithesis of a ballet corps, yet become a unified ensemble. On the Edge of Your Feet, ThursdaysSaturdays, April 4-6 and 11-13 at 7:30 p.m., with one matinee at 2 p.m. on Sunday April 7, in the Van Duzer Theatre on the HSU campus in Arcata. Tickets available at the HSU Box Office, (707) 826-3928, or at the door. Leslie Castellano-Howabauten’s performance lab Synapsis has achieved a reputation for experimental dance. Now she is bringing a San Francisco show to Eureka for one night on Saturday, April 6, giving audiences a chance to see some of the latest in performance art. The visit comes because Castellano-Howabauten has been traveling to the city to work as a member of Miriam Wolodarski’s San
Francisco-based company, Sense Object. Sense Object’s Of Limb and Language, which recently premiered at CounterPULSE in San Francisco, is described by Wolodarski as “a communicational tragicomedy, a brutal love affair between semantics and somatics.” It explores how we find ways to distance ourselves from the violent events we read about or hear on the news. The dancers are trained in contact improvisation, with movements initiated where bodies touch, and dancers move on top of and beneath each other, casting one another into the air, at times nurturing and at times aggressive. You can expect that collaborative spirit to emerge in Of Limb and Language, whose script and choreography were developed by the cast. The evening opens with The Right to Tell Your Story, directed by Kayleigh Stack, a multimedia project using movement, graphics and audio. Of Limb and Language, Saturday, April 6, 8 p.m., Synapsis, 47 West Third St., Eureka. $8-$15, sliding scale, no one turned away. Synapsis is a small space and reservations are highly recommended. (707) 616-3104.
An evening of family entertainment and carnival mayhem brings stilt-walkers,
aerial artists and giant puppets to Arcata in Cirque de Shawazee, at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, at the Arcata Playhouse, 1251 Ninth St. The evening benefits the Playhouse’s youth program. Adults $15, kids $10. (707) 616-3104. When local dance teacher Stephanie Carter wanted to free her own inner beast, the dances inside her that were crying out to be choreographed, she figured others had their own inner artistic beasts too. She and Shoshanna of Redwood Raks put out that call to choreographers. The result spans jazz, Middle Eastern and modern dance in two performances. Free the Beasts, at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 4, and 2 p.m. Sunday, May 5, at Redwood Raks World Dance Center, Ninth and L streets in Arcata. Tickets $10 at the door. www. humboldtdancer.net. The quintessential modern dance company, led by the quintessential choreographer Paul Taylor, returns to CenterArts with an evening length program. Paul Taylor Dance Company, Tuesday May 7, 8 p.m., the Van Duzer Theater on the HSU campus. Tickets adult $45, child $25, HSU student $15. Humboldt.edu/centerarts, (707) 826-3928 And that’s only through the beginning of May. There will be more dance to come as spring unfurls. l

a chamber music quartet and add vocals and lots of non-chambery ideas? Violinist Irene Sazer, formerly of Turtle Island Quartet, decided to find out. She enlisted violist Dina Maccabee, cellist Jessica Ivry and another violinist, Alisa Rose, and assembled the Real Vocal String Quartet, a singing, improvising powerhouse playing Saturday night at the Arcata Playhouse. RVSQ erases genre boundaries, pulling together a classical feel, jazz, rock, something-grass and worldly sounds from from West Africa and Brazil. As a result, the ensemble was selected by the State Department to become musical ambassadors touring five European countries last fall. There’s a new band playing Thursday at the Jambalaya: The Soulsapiens. It’s what you might call a concept band, with Matt ‘n’ Adam from Missing Link roped in to do the set list. “It was my idea,” said bassist Drew Mohr, who plays in several other bands. “I basically wanted to latch onto the HumBrews Soul Night fame. As far as up to much more than nothing.

Something from Nothing
The return of Zero, plus Spirit House, Real Vocal String Quartet, The Soulsapiens and Ghostface Killah By Bob Doran
t started with a musical collaboration between the master of liquid guitar lyricism Steve Kimock, and the dynamic drummer Greg Anton. The year was 1984; the place, Marin County. “Greg and I met playing with Keith and Donna [Godchaux] in Heart of Gold,” recalled Kimock. “Then, tragically and unexpectedly, Keith lost his life in a automobile accident. So that folded up and we were left thinking: Can we keep playing together?” Yes, they could — in a band they called Zero. Kimock continued, “We found some guys, and they were good. We had like a thousand different guys in every position, lots of bass players, keyboard players and second guitarists, miscellaneous percussionists; people writing for us. John Cipollina [guitarist from Quicksilver] was playing with us, after a while we got [saxophonist] Martin Fierro involved. I don’t think we had a specific vision musically — at first it was instrumental, and it was whatever they used to call it: ‘rock/jazz/electric’ or something like that. We played music that suited us, played hard and went long.” The band eventually added vocals and Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, who wrote Zero songs including the signature number “Chance in a Million.” At this point all involved have many other irons in the fire, so the prototypical jamband doesn’t play all that often. As Kimock put it, “It’s kind of rare, but it’s always a pleasure — it’s an easy bike to get back on.” This weekend is one of those times when Zero rides again. Friday the band jams at Humboldt Brews with Kimock on lead, Anton on drums, Pete Sears (from Jefferson Starship and Hot Tuna) on keyboards, Banana (from The Youngbloods) on second guitar and Robin Sylvester (from RatDog) on bass. It adds

Humboldt Calypso Band, and ToNaOnDa, an all-percussion samba group playing grooves from Rio and Salvador, Brazil. And, making this a very special night, there’s a resurrection of Sambatá, with three godfathers of Humboldt percussion: Eugene Novotney, David Peñalosa and Kaufman. “This will be our first concert together as Sambatá in over seven years,” said Kaufman. Ghostface Killah from Wu-Tang Clan stars in a live, hip hop extravaganza, “Adrian Younge Presents Ghostface Killah and Twelve Reasons To Die,” on Saturday night at the Mateel. Younge drew on the spaghetti western film music of Ennio Morricone, American soul of the 1960s and ‘70s, and ‘90s hip-hop a la RZA — he calls it “progressive nostalgia” — to create a dark story that’s also being released as a series of six comic books via Black Mask Studio. Younge’s band Venice Dawn provides backing for Ghostface. Saturday night at the Shanty, Miss Lonely Hearts rolls in from the Central Valley with a van full of shit-kickin’ alt. honky tonk/rock ‘n’ country. The allusion to Nathanael West’s dark novel about a newspaper columnist makes it all the more intriguing. Who else would open the show but Gunsafe? Washingtonian world beat wonder Yogoman Burning Band returns to Humboldt for a pair of shows. Saturday night at the Jambalaya, it’s a more-or-less adult affair (over 21 only); Sunday afternoon (1 p.m.) Yogoman and company play an all-ages, family-friendly show, again at the Jam. Kids like to dance too. You have an extremely wide range of musical options on Tuesday, April 9: A Chinese string quartet known as the Beijing Chamber Ensemble plays music by Beethoven and Brahms in HSU Fulkerson Recital Hall. The Palm Lounge has Vandella, a cool band from San Francisco that draws on classic and Southern rock, Motown, folk, blues and indie rock to create a multifaceted sound that defies easy labeling. The Arcata Playhouse welcomes The Vanaver Caravan, a traveling mini-folk festival from New York State led by folk musician Bill Vanaver and his choreographer wife, Livia. The troupe pulls together Pete Seeger-style sing-along and banjo picking with clogging, Irish and Balkan dancing and flamenco — all in the name of world peace. And at The Works, it’s an evening of alt. whatever with Seattle-based psychedelic/ electronic prog-rockers Midday Veil, on tour with Seattle ambient duo Brain Fruit, plus Humboldt’s own tripped out fuzz monsters White Manna and dark garage trio Super Brown. That’s right, all on a Tuesday here behind the Redwood Curtain. •

book Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief By Lawrence Wright - Knopf
submit your events online or by e-mail
Deadline: Noon Thursday the week before publication
Lawrence Wright’s new book on Scientology is not the first expose of the church, though it is the first by a Pulitzer prizewinner. Such a pedigree was still not enough to ensure its publication in the United Kingdom, where the book faced challenges from the fiercely litigious church. The book reveals church founder L. Ron Hubbard to be an inveterate yarn spinner from very early in life. Well before he was writing pulp science fiction tales, he invented self-aggrandizing tales of nonexistent war injuries, travels to the Far East that never happened, and heroic Navy exploits in World War II that rarely check out with military records. After the war, Hubbard befriended rocket scientist Jack Parsons, one of the founders of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Parsons was also a follower of occultist Aleister Crowley. In his house, dubbed The Parsonage, Parsons welcomed an odd assortment of bohemians and artists (an ad for tenants stated “must not believe in God”). It was here that Hubbard combined his sci-fi speculations, pop Freudianism and a peculiarly American self-help doctrine in the book Dianetics, which became a bestseller in 1950. Though the book brought Hubbard brief success and money, Dianetics eventually went bankrupt, both because of financial mismanagement and legal challenges to its scientific legitimacy. Scientology rose from its ashes, reframing and expanding its pseudo scientific program as a religion. Throughout Hubbard’s life, he would improvise further details of his ludicrous theology, continually keeping his followers waiting for the next revelation. In his own words: “To keep a person on the Scientology path, feed him a mystery sandwich.” By the late ’60s, Hubbard had rekindled his grand visions of naval heroism and founded the Sea Organization, a subset of Scientology drawn from the elite inner core of the church. Hubbard fashioned himself “The Commander,” though in Wright’s telling he was a petty and capricious captain who quickly wore out his welcome wherever his ship sailed. In 1977 Scientology finally snagged its first big convert: John Travolta. Through the ’70s and ’80s, movie stars like Travolta and Tom Cruise became the church’s public image. Wright contrasts the royal treatment of these stars with the indentured servitude, random violence and intimidation of rank-in-file members, some of whom worked for dollars a day. The church ruthlessly attacked apostates and those who would expose its dark side, both in the courts and by more underhanded means. Scientology made important political connections as well, at one point even enlisting Bill Clinton to defend the church when it was challenged in Europe. It was once said that a cult is a religion with no political power. By that measure, Scientology definitely qualifies as a religion, though its power to intimidate is on the wane, in no small part because of books like this. — Jay Aubrey-Herzog

SPRING BREAKERS. I’ve never been tempted to watch a Harmony Korine film twice. He floored me with the raw teenage sexuality of 1995’s Kids, which he cowrote, and disgusted me with sociopathic images in 1997’s Gummo. I can acknowledge the artistic expressions and powerful messages of his films, but then it’s time to pick myself back up and try to restore my faith in humanity. Korine’s latest, Spring Breakers, runs in the same vein. It’s a montage-filled, violence-fueled story about four college girls and their criminal exploits leading to

and through a Floridian spring break. Faith (Selena Gomez), Candy (Vanessa Hudgens), Brit (Ashley Benson) and Cotty (Harmony Korine’s wife, Rachel Korine) escape the banality of college by taking a trip to the sunny, hedonistic beaches of Florida. To fund their escapades, three of the girls rob a local diner and convince the fourth, God-fearing Faith, to enjoy their newfound wealth. Once in Florida, constant partying leads to their bikini-clad arrest. With no hope of making bail, the girls have to face the reality of their dilemma. That is until (cue the heroic trumpets) drug dealer and Dirty South rapper Alien (James Franco) comes to their rescue. He has all of the money and weapons they need to keep the party going, and they have all of the naked skin and sociopathic tendencies he needs to indulge his fantasies. Imagine a cross between Natural Born Killers and Girls Gone Wild, but with more cocaine. Spring Breakers relies heavily on Korine’s usual tools: hand-held camera wobbles, heavy use of montage, and rhythmic shifts of focus to distract you from the repetition. Combined, these tools try to transform the mundane into something surreal. This trick might pay off if used sparingly, but with Korine’s zeal it becomes a constant annoyance. If you can get past the redundancy of
the hypersexual montages you might find some insight into today’s party culture and its potential for sexual exploitation, rape and misogyny. Amid the other violent themes, though, it’s hard to tell whether Korine deserves credit for this insight. For the most part his perspective comes across as masculine view of female sexual exploration. On the plus side, Spring Breakers definitely adds another notch on Franco’s belt. His role is deliberately absurd, and he pulls it off excellently. Alien takes smarmy to a new level, and I love Franco for doing it so well. Korine’s screenplay doesn’t give nearly as much dimension to the female leads, which is a shame considering their previous roles. With the exception of Rachel Korine, the female cast has deep roots in the worlds of Disney and Nickelodeon stardom. They should be commended for breaking free of their wholesome stereotypes, and the blame for their bland performances should fall completely on Korine. Spring Breakers not only fails to shock in Korine’s familiar style, but it also fails to entertain. R. 94m. THE HOST. Stephenie Meyer ruined vampires and werewolves with the Twilight trilogy, so it only seems fair that she should ruin aliens too. Meyer’s novel, adapted for the screen by science fiction ruiner Andrew Niccol (In Time, Gattaca), is a tepid, unoriginal tale about an alien race of body stealers who have almost completely taken over Earth. The only thing that stands in the way of their total domination is a small group of underground rebels led by William Hurt. Typical of both Meyer and Niccol, this sci-fi storyline serves as nothing more than a vehicle for a lackluster and predictable love story. Not just any boring love story, but the peculiar type you get from Meyer: a chaste and melodramatic love triangle (or love rhombus, in this case) with obvious religious undertones, peppered with the sort of high-octane passion usually reserved for daytime soap operas. After an incredibly short and lazy exposition, the film enters a two-hour boredom spiral that no amount of concession stand chocolate can remedy. Melanie Strider’s (Saoirse Ronan) life as a rebel comes to an end when she’s captured by the Seekers, aliens who use Melanie’s body to host one of their own. But Melanie’s consciousness is too strong to let the alien take over completely. Eventually, she and her alien parasite become besties, working together to bolster the resistance. Throughout, the audience is treated to an annoying, echoing voice-over as the inner Melanie battles with the outer alien. I don’t have many rules in life, but one of them is this: I don’t want to watch two hours of someone fighting the voice in his

Megafloods: Coming Our Way? By Barry Evans
he Humboldt Redwoods State Park visitor center at Weott has a fine display, including newsreel movies, telling the story of the 1964 “Christmas flood.” It focuses on Eel River communities, such as Myers Flat, Weott, South Fork, Shively, Pepperwood and Stafford, all of which were essentially wiped out by floodwaters. However, those December rains also affected most of the Pacific Northwest, including virtually every major stream and river on the West Coast. Portland was especially hard-hit, when the Willamette overtopped the city seawall. Back here in Humboldt County, the Christmas flood caused $100 million in damage. The 1964 flood was nothing compared with the last real flood suffered by Californians. That was in 1861, when the Central Valley turned into a 300-mile-long by 20mile wide Central Sea. Thousands of people, and a quarter million head of cattle, died. Sacramento was flooded for six months, prompting the Legislature to move temporarily to San Francisco, while the state went bankrupt. Now that was a flood. Except it was dwarfed by the flood of 1605. Haven’t heard of it? No one had, until climate researchers started comparing hydrological evidence from various parts of California. Their chilling conclusion, as reported in January’s Scientific American (“The Coming Megafloods”), is that not only do huge floods occur on the West Coast on a regular basis — once every 200 years or so — but that, thanks to global warming, their intensity is likely to increase. That’s bad news for the 6 million people now living in the Central Valley. The evidence for huge and regular prehistoric floods comes from multiple sources. Among them are: core samples taken off the Santa Barbara coast, where

Humboldt bay municipal Water district director division boundary adjustments The Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District (HBMWD) is required to redistrict, or adjust, its Directors’ division boundaries after each decennial U.S. Census, or as determined by its Directors via a two-thirds vote. During the April 11, 2013 Board meeting, the HBMWD’s Board of Directors will discuss finalizing adjustments to the Directors’ Division Boundaries at 9:30 am. Various options have been reviewed during the past four months. Areas under consideration are: 1) Division 2 - area south of the Mad River commonly referred to as the Arcata Bottoms; 2) Division 5 - area east of Arcata around Jacoby Creek; 3) Division 3 - area of the Samoa Peninsula; 4) Division 4 - area south of Hemlock Street and west of Redwood Fields along Walnut Drive to Cypress Street. The Public is welcome to present any comments for consideration prior to finalizing the Division boundary adjustments. The HBMWD office is located at 828 7th Street in Eureka. 4/4/2013 (13-104)
ancient flood-borne sediments can be read like annual tree rings; radiocarbon dating of sediments in marsh cores from around San Francisco Bay; gravel flood terraces at sites in the Klamath basin, including Indian Scotty campground (on the Scott River) and Eagle Creek campground (on the Trinity); and sediment cores taken at Little Packer oxbow lake (near Willows), which only floods when the Sacramento River overtops its banks. What struck the researchers was the consistency of the data from these far-flung sites. Within the margins of error, they found evidence for truly huge floods occurring, on average, every two centuries. They attribute these floods to newly discovered phenomena: eastward-flowing “atmospheric rivers” from the Pacific. Such “rivers in the sky” bring to the West Coast up to 15 times as much the water as the Mississippi River carries. They flow in a 250 mile-wide layer of very humid air, about a mile above the ocean. They’re not all bad: Most years, atmospheric rivers supply up to 50 percent of California’s precipitation in the span of 10 days, including our wellknown “pineapple expresses” from Hawaii. According to the Scientific American article, “six out of seven climate models [predict] the average rain and snow delivered to California by future atmospheric rivers increases by an average of about 10 percent by the year 2100.” Given that we’re hit by megafloods on average every 200 years, and that the last one was in 1861, we might want to reconsider our current California tendency to build on floodplains and live alongside riverbanks. l Barry Evans (barryevans9@yahoo. com) thanks Dr. Lynn Ingram of UC Berkeley, co-author of the Scientific American article referenced above, for help with this column.
