Railroad(ed) Editor: I attended the public hearing in Eureka City Council chambers on March 29 (“Political Reality 2013,” From the Publisher, April 4). Linda Atkins raised an important point about the process: Caltrans has these grants available every year. There was not the rush that David Hull insisted on. His mea culpa rang phony with me: he hadn’t worried about the timeline to apply for the grant because he assumed (!) the city had a template for applying for these kinds of grants. Linda pointed out that the deadline was April 2 but stressed that this was a manufactured crisis because the grants are available every year. My question: How can $17,500 in “staff time” be spent between Friday, March 29 and Tuesday, April 2? Whose money is the Caltrans grant, anyway? I keep coming back to a certain question I have asked myself many times recently: How dumb do they think we are? Do they really think we aren’t paying attention? I’ve watched David Hull in action about economic planning several times since his separation from the Harbor Commission. As I listened to his presentation on Good Friday and Linda’s recurrent protests that the process was wrong, I smelled a rat but could trace the source of the stench. Thank you for connecting the dots. Now, what are we political junkies going to do about the “disinterest” in campaign finance reform? Hollie Klingel, Eureka
Just loving that community organizer Editor: Thank you for your enlightening cover story on “HumCPR Rising” (March 28) and publisher Judy Hodgson’s subsequent follow up on Lee Ulansey. I never knew Mr. Ulansey was such a successful community organizer who was able to bring so many diverse groups together for a common cause. It almost reminds me of that man from Chicago who got his start as a community organizer before his foray into politics. Matthew Owen, Eureka

Editor: Not sure what the intent of Ryan Burns’ “HumCPR Rising” and Publisher Judy Hodgson’s “Political Reality 2013” was; instead of vilifying Lee Ulansey, it made him out to be a shrewd community organizer. In her “My Bully Pulpit” article (May 17, 2012) Ms. Hodgson made some endorsements for the June 2012 elections. Regarding Estelle Fennell, she said, “I’m very leery of this kind of lobbyist being elected to the board.” Yet, she endorsed Mark Lovelace for supervisor, a former lobbyist for Healthy Humboldt. Ms. Hodgson never endorsed a candidate for the 1st District race, and when questioned, avoided answering. Her reasons are OK, yet Mr. Ulansey’s declining to being interviewed is not. Where was NCJ‘s investigative reporting when Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap, a founding member of Local Solutions and Democracy Unlimited of Humboldt County was elected to a county seat? Or the article on Blue Lake Casino or Bill Pierson, the largest political contributors in Humboldt County, between 2002 and 2010? Could this be due to the fact they are one of NCJ‘s largest advertisers and Ms. Hodgson doesn’t want to bite the hand that feeds her? Ms. Hodgson claims HumCPR spent “an enormous amount of money that now influences the daily and weekly politics of Humboldt.” The campaign 460s show that HumCPR has never given any political candidate a single check, and unlike NCJ, has never made any endorsements in local elections. Lee Ulansey and HumCPR did not win the “super majority” on the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors or the Eureka City Council. All the winning candidates and their dedicated team of
volunteers presenting a positive message resonated with the voters. Having a different political view is one thing, writing “hit pieces” and calling it news is another. Perhaps the NCJ should change its name to “Judy’s Journal.” John Chiv, Eureka Editor: Charley Custer was very concise in describing the Journal’s “high-piled righteousness” in Ryan Burns initial piece on HumCPR. It was further expounded on when your publisher followed up with her droning on about Mr. Ulansey declining to provide her an interview. Who was it that said, “silence is the only thing that can’t be misquoted”? I’m not affiliated with HumCPR, but if they helped elect some candidates that are not in lock step with the no-growth, big-government, anti-business agenda that has prevailed here for a long time, good for them. The voters obviously had their own reasons to vote the way they did, based on the information the candidates provided them, in spite of the Journal’s endorsement of alternate candidates. After all, President Obama never fails to remind us that elections have consequences? Perhaps, just maybe, your editorial board is out of touch with a larger percentage of your readers and advertisers than you realize on this issue? Kenneth Daer, Kneeland

The Long Wait
Veterans get antsy as Eureka’s new VA clinic struggles to keep docs By Heidi Walters
t’s soothing inside the new Veterans Affairs’ outpatient clinic in Eureka, with its muted chocolate-and-tan patchwork of wood-toned paneling and floors, soft-blue painted walls, and pamphlet-stuffed racks sprinkled throughout the lobby and hallways. On a recent afternoon, April sun brightened the windows and a few people sat in the
lobby waiting area. A clerk was telling a man, 60-ish, that as soon as the clinic gets more doctors — two more are supposed to come on soon — she could schedule him an appointment. She asked, “Would you like to make an appointment to go to the clinic in San Francisco?” He said maybe, and they talked a bit more. After him, another, older man stepped

up. No, he said (when it came to that), he didn’t want to go to San Francisco. Would he like to be seen by a nurse? No, he wanted a doctor. This is not an unusual scene these days at the new VA clinic, a remodeled former Safeway on Harris Street that opened for its new life as a medical hub in October. Doctor after doctor has quit since then, according to Judi Cheary, public affairs director for the San Francisco VA Medical Center, which oversees the Eureka clinic and five others. “The patients are justifiably frustrated,” she said. Among them are Philip Sanders, a Vietnam veteran who raises beef cattle and timber out in Orleans. In January, he said, he was told he’d have to wait until April 1 for his annual physical and some lab work his cardiologist wanted done. But as his appointment neared, in late March, he received a card from them saying his April 1 appointment had been canceled and “we will contact you to reschedule.” He called a few days later, but still couldn’t get in. “I can’t wait any longer,” he said. “So I’m making an attempt to make an appointment with a private physician.” Kneeland resident John Mitchell, who was on the USS Pueblo when it was captured by the North Koreans in 1968, said he was told to wait for his regular checkup — a month away — to be seen for a flareup of his irritable bowel syndrome. The San Francisco clinic offered him a nextday appointment — down there. And a free shuttle ride. Huh-uh, he said. “Drive six hours, spend the night in a motel?” he said. “And the shuttle — that’s the trip to hell. You get on this bus and they only stop in Ukiah — the only pit stop. And most old guys like me, we gotta go to the can more than once on the way to San Francisco.” Especially when the bowels are goofy. He decided to ride the illness out. Scotty McClure, an Army veteran who lives in Benbow, said he really liked the doctor at the clinic he saw last year, when
he had pneumonia. She spent 55 minutes with him. But then she quit; he said he heard she had a family emergency. Since then, he’s had a cancer scare — some suspicious nodules on his lungs. After the second CT scan, he said, he had to wait 35 days before he finally got in to see a doctor at the clinic. That was last week, and it was good news: no cancer. But he’d fretted over a month, during which time he said he called the clinic “30 to 40 times” to try to set up an appointment. “The doctor I saw [last week] told me three doctors have quit, and that she’ll be leaving, too” McClure said. Sanders, the Orleans veteran, also has had some good experiences at the new clinic. He got in to see the optometrist right away. And the clinic’s medication service — run out of San Francisco, with medications mailed directly to his home — is “Johnny-on-the-spot,” he said. But trying to get in to see a primary care provider? It’s nothing like the old clinic, he said. “I never waited more than 10 minutes with the old set up,” Sanders said. Why? What’s going on? Cheary sounded frustrated last week as she talked about the shortage of primary care providers here, at the farthestflung clinic the San Francisco VA oversees. “We’re very much understaffed,” Cheary said. ���We’ve had a constant turnover since the doors opened in October.” The old clinic, on F Street, was run primarily by private contractors — three primary care doctors, one nurse practitioner and three medical clerks. It also had five mental health staff employed by the VA. The clinic offered primary care, mental health care, a pharmacy, laboratory tests, X-rays, telemedicine and homebased primary care services. The new clinic, operated by the VA, is supposed to offer the same, plus more: audiology, optometry, podiatry, prosthetics and, eventually, physical therapy. The goal, said Cheary, was to start off with seven primary care providers — a stillunspecified combination of doctors and
nurse practitioners. Plus, there would be a podiatrist, five registered nurses and five licensed vocational nurses; non-physician specialists in optometry, audiology and phlebotomy; telehealth technicians, administrative staff and clerks. Fully staffed, she said, the clinic should employ about 40 people. But from the start, she said, the clinic has never been fully staffed. The reasons vary. “We hired one doctor, and when we went to do his credentialing, we found he hadn’t exposed that his license had been suspended,” Cheary said. “We hired one woman — who was going to be chief — then she had a family illness and couldn’t relocate.” Other doctors have made it here, but then left — Cheary said she didn’t know how many, nor each one’s specific reason for leaving, but she didn’t think salary was the issue. The VA pays doctors between $170,000 and $195,000. There appear to be two main reasons, she said, that doctors have been hard to recruit and retain. One is workload. Eureka’s VA clinic served 4,814 veterans in fiscal year 2012, and handled 22,950 outpatient visits. Each doctor is expected to carry a workload of 1,100 patients. And the other? “Our primary challenge has been location — doctors not wanting to live in Eureka,” Cheary said. “Or, we had a case where the doctor wanted to live in Eureka but the family didn’t.” As of last week, the clinic employed two doctors and two nurse practitioners. It also is using a telehealth doctor based in Clear Lake. Staff in San Francisco are filling prescriptions and taking care of some other clerical duties. There’s an audiologist on board, and an optometrist and prosthetics specialist, but no podiatrist yet. One of the doctors is only here temporarily and will be leaving in a month. But some new hires are on the way, Cheary said. “We hope to have the chief MD coming in July,” she said. “And we have another
MD coming on board at the end of April. And another is coming the first of June. So then we’ll have six primary care providers. And we’re recruiting for an additional MD.” In the meantime, she said, clinic staff are telling people they can use the free shuttle for appointments in San Francisco. Many decline. Cheary said she doesn’t know how many existing patients have been put on hold, waiting for appointments. But she said 64 people are on a waiting list to become VA patients. She also was hesitant to say when the clinic would be fully staffed, because who can know if the new doctors will stay. Again, frustration crept into her voice. Her office has never run into this before. The Clear Lake clinic had a slow start, she said, but nothing like it’s been in Eureka. “When we opened the doors last October, we anticipated the staff we had recruited would come on board, and would stay,” she said. “We, in a million years, never would have anticipated the hiring challenges we’ve had. They’re unusal. They’re unexpected. But we have an obligation to our veterans, and we intend to meet that obligation.” Meanwhile, some patients, including Kneeland resident Mitchell, have called Congressman Jared Huffman’s office for help. “I’m 65,” Mitchell said, “and this tires me out. If you’re 80, you don’t have the energy to light a fire under these people.” Huffman said last Friday that his office has been working with the Eureka VA clinic for the past few months, and has helped six veterans get appointments. “But I’m sure there are more of them out there needing assistance,” he said. The San Francisco VA office assured him that issues in Eureka would be resolved by summer, Huffman said, and he intends to make the VA stick to that vow. Cheary noted that if any patients have gotten appointments, it isn’t because of a congressman intervening. The limited staff is taking patients by triage — urgent cases first, she said. l

After the Marathon
A New Journal-ista
Humboldt State University Professor Tasha Souza was stopped in her tracks by crowds fleeing explosions after finishing the Boston Marathon yesterday — a race she attended to honor a lost friend. Souza was unharmed, but the day was already a poignant one for her, because she’d been running in honor of her friend Suzanne Seemann, who was killed by a car while jogging with friends from the Six Rivers Running Club in September. “I’m physically OK,” Souza said, calling from Los Angeles while waiting for a flight home. “I went into the race a bit emotional.” After crossing the finish line, Souza said she was overcome with emotion while remembering her friend. “My plan was to go back to the finish line and because I was so upset, I decided to go back out and stretch and calm myself down.” Souza was two blocks away, walking back to the finish line from the Boston Common, when she heard the explosions. “We thought ‘was that a cannon? Was that thunder?’” she said. “That’s when I was stopped in my tracks. I’m lucky I didn’t see the carnage. I just saw people horrified, running towards me.” The bombing, which officials are calling a terror attack, killed three — including an 8-year-old boy — and injured more than 100 others. Arcata attorney Chris Hamer was registered for the event but didn’t attend — she’s been under the weather lately and hotels were too expensive. “This is the first time I have ever signed up for a marathon and not run it,” Hamer wrote in an email. “As it turns out, the explosions occurred about the time I probably would have been crossing the finishing line, if I had run the marathon.” Safely in Arcata, Hamer experienced firsthand some of the concern and confusion that followed the bombing, as people around the country scrambled to find out if friends and family were harmed. “Today’s Times-Standard lists my status as unknown,” she wrote. “I have now had 112 phone calls, texts, emails and Facebook messages asking if I am OK. I am sorry to cause so many people worry, but touched so many people cared.” Other runners from Humboldt County also are apparently OK, according to reports in the Lost Coast Outpost and Times-Standard.

Railroad Authority’s Board of Directors saw plenty of impassioned arguments, lots of squabbling over legalese and at least two cases of hurt feelings. The two most no-
table results were these: 1) The board voted 8-1 to delete key parts of a 2011 resolution, thus invalidating an environmental impact report that it filed just two years ago and which was financed with $3 million of public money from the California Transportation Commission, and 2) The board joined a long list of government agencies in approving a resolution in support of a feasibility study for the mythic east-west rail line, but only after scratching out some of the language and adding some terms of its own. By backing away from the environmental impact report, the board hopes to sidestep a legal challenge from two environmental groups — Friends of the Eel River and Californians for Alternatives to Toxics — that are suing the state agency, alleging that the report doesn’t comply with state environmental law. (See the groups’ letter to the board from a link on our website.) It’s also an apparent admission by the board that it has no plans in the foreseeable future to rebuild the north-south rail line through the Eel River Canyon, which has been out of commission since 1999. Hurt feelings No. 1: Scott Greacen, executive director of Friends of the Eel River, was offended by what he felt were derisive comments from board member John McCowen about environmental groups. But he was more offended by the board’s actions. Those groups weren’t the only ones upset. Leishara Ward, a transportation planner with the California Department of Transportation, stepped to the lectern to say that the board should either abide by the terms of the EIR or return that $3 million. In response, NCRA board members and staff made a curious argument: They said that even though they don’t believe their agency is bound to comply with the terms of the EIR, the $3 million in public funds that paid for it wasn’t a waste because, hey, there’s still a lot of good data in there. As NCRA legal counsel Chris Neary said, “The environmental impact report will stand as an informational document.” Hurt feelings No. 2: Board Chair Paul Kelley said he was annoyed that it took the Land Bridge Alliance, the organization pushing for an eastwest rail study, so long to approach the NCRA board. This was quickly smoothed over. At board member Bill Kier’s suggestion, language was added to the resolution stating that a) the feasibility study should include the existing north-south right-of-way as a viable alternative, and b) it should address financing for the project. Kier made a veiled reference to a certain local businessman who said in a radio interview last October that the whole project “pencils out” with private funding. Proponents are now advocating a public-private partnership, and Jan Kraepelien, one such proponent, suggested financing the study through the Headwaters Fund. ●

More Lovin’ on CR
Safe! (CR Baseball)
Fortuna Facing Cuts
Well, amid all the sad talk of budget cuts and squinched offerings for students, the good money-news keeps a-comin’. First it was a vow from the community to round up the money to keep the college’s baseball program going. Now it’s a windfall for the college’s gerontology care program. According to the college, its Health Occupations Programs will be injected with $250,000 from the law firm Janssen Malloy LLP, of Eureka — the firm that helped whip Skilled Healthcare in a class-action lawsuit and has won court-approval to give some of the settlement money to CR to raise more nurses. (But just because the settlement was reached, the nursing home troubles continued, as the Journal reported last year.) As part of the settlement, Skilled Healthcare has to meet legally mandated minimum staffing levels. That’s why the law firm wants to direct money to CR’s geriatric nursing program. CR’s Dean of Health and Emergency Response Occupations, Dr. Pat Girczyc, said CR educates about 75 percent of Humboldt County’s registered nurses and the majority of its licensed vocational nurses.
After much ballyhooing from the stands — and promises from community members to raise some dough — College of the Redwoods plans to bring back baseball. The college’s 46-year-old intercollegiate baseball program was benched a couple years ago, in one of the college’s budget-trimming moments. Men’s soccer was cut, too, and so far the college hasn’t announced its reinstatement. (Women’s soccer also took a seat last fall, but that was because the program couldn’t get enough players; a person on the phone today at CR’s athletic department said unofficially that women’s soccer is back and “they’re heavily recruiting right now.”) Defenders of the baseball and soccer programs attended a recent board of trustees’ meetings — coaches noting the worthiness of athletics for young minds and bodies, high school soccer players pining to be on the CR team, former players, and others. Baseball’s comeback will depend mightily on those fundraising promises, said a news release from the college, to pay for such things as “equipment, field improvements and travel.” Ante up, ball fans.
The City of Fortuna is facing a $435,669 shortfall this coming fiscal year and will have to make what a news release from the city today calls “significant cuts to the City budget”: “The City Council is resolute about addressing this financial situation at the earliest possible opportunity and is prepared to make tough decisions to regain the very conservative budgeting practices that led to the development of solid reserves for the City over the past 20 years. The Council has also stated that use of reserves to provide services over the next fiscal year is not desired and will only be the last option.” Regan Candelario, who has been the city manager since September last year, said by phone this afternoon that where the cuts might occur has not been decided yet. He said staff will be looking at all areas of city government for ways to trim expenses. Candelario said some charts will be up by the end of today on the city’s website detailing “some basic stuff about recent increases in health care costs, retirement benefits, gas” and so on.

On The Waterfront Now A national symposium provides a fresh view for Humboldt’s oceanfront future By Ryan Burns
hey came from Portland, Maine, and Portland, Ore., from the Chesapeake Bay and the Florida Keys. They came from all walks of water-dependent life: commercial fishermen from San Diego, nonprofit conservationists from the Puget Sound, urban planners from Maryland and many more. From up and down the eastern and western seaboards came government engineers, policy makers and scientists along with private consultants, ship builders and entrepreneurs. All were among the several hundred people who gathered in Tacoma, Wash., late last month to talk about ways to protect and improve working waterfronts and waterways. Over the four days of the Third National Working Waterfronts & Waterways Symposium — the first one ever held on the West Coast — this diverse group of folks met in conference rooms to share stories, information and ideas. They gave PowerPoint presentations and mingled, munching on corn chips and hummus. They heard talks from panels of experts, a speech from U.S. Sen. Patty Murray of Washington and, at a seafood banquet, a song of blessing from a Puyallup Tribe elder. The Journal was there, along with a few others from Humboldt County, and the symposium provided a rare opportunity to view our local waterfront in a national context. Oceanfront communities big and small are facing the same
inter-related challenges, trying to strike a balance between commerce, the environment and public access in the face of globalization, environmental declines and rising sea levels. And here’s the surprising picture that emerged: Sure, Humboldt County has its challenges, and we could certainly learn a few things from what’s being done elsewhere. (You’ll find some examples below.) But in many ways our harbor- and ocean-related activities can serve as a model for getting along, showing how planning and collaboration can prevent paralyzing conflict. This is no mean feat given the legacy of different, often conflicting uses along Humboldt County’s 100-plus miles of coastline (as the Aleutian geese fly), and particularly in and around our harbor, the second-largest natural bay in California. Whether it’s the North Coast stakeholders group that hammered out a unified proposal for the Marine Life Protection Act or the collaborative planning effort that could expand aquaculture in Humboldt Bay, people in Humboldt County have been solving problems better than we sometimes imagine. Which is a very good thing, considering the challenges on the horizon.
It was a cold, gray morning
in Tacoma, and wind gusts were tossing frigid mists outside the Hotel Murano while Sarah Garcia stood in one of the beige-carpeted conference rooms to

deliver one of the more captivating presentations of the week. Garcia, who has soft features and a calm authority, is the director of economic development for the port of Gloucester, Mass. Like Humboldt Bay, Gloucester’s port has a long and colorful history, dominated by working fishermen, and that history is often invisible to visitors. (The big exception was The Perfect Storm, the book and movie about Gloucester fishermen who were swept to sea during a hurricane.) “People say, ‘Gloucester is like a veiled woman; she could be beautiful but you’re not sure,’” Garcia said. In an effort to unveil her, the port authority came up with an idea for an interactive harbor walk that leads tourists and locals in and out of the working waterfront, up to the town’s civic center, stores and museum and down the city’s Sicilian main street before looping back to the waterfront. The tour is enhanced not only by 42 little pillars with informational plaques (called “story moments”) but also with short, entertaining videos that can be viewed on a smart phone or tablet. Garcia explained how it works: You download a free app (which cost the port authority $20,000 to have developed) and then scan a QR code at the entrance to the “HarborWalk.” Up pops a YouTube video with a friendly female narrator who instructs you to point your phone at a nearby parking
lot and shake it. Suddenly, on the screen, the drab parking lot fills with confetti, followed by a montage of images from a festival called Fiesta, which takes place on the spot each June. And with that, the tour has begun. Each video directs you to the next stop, where you can watch another short video. One tells you about the annual Greasy Pole competition, where contestants (often inebriated) attempt to walk across a long, slippery power pole suspended above the bay and grab a flag at the far end before splashing into the water, 20 feet below, to the wild cheers of revelers. The video shows highlights and slip-flail-splash lowlights set to opera music. Another clip directs you to a dory, a 16-foot rowboat, that’s stationed on a pier. You can work the oars and blow a conch shell while watching the harrowing tale of Howard Blackburn, a fisherman who survived a brutal storm in a boat that size in 1883. The 2 ½-mile walking tour covers the history, economics and cultural events of the port. “We wanted to tell the whole story,” Garcia said. And since it was launched last August, the project has started to change that story. “A commercial business owner said he saw business

go up 20 percent after the walk went in,” Garcia added. Jim Brennan, a Seattle-based landscape architect, was impressed by Garcia’s presentation. “That was so intriguing, and I thought that kind of approach for Eureka was an interesting idea,” he said in a follow-up phone interview. Brennan got to know our county seat after the city hired him to revitalize its channel dock and boardwalk, which now include new pedestrian plazas. He also designed the Eureka Fisherman’s Terminal building. Brennan said that a similar harbor walking tour in Eureka could highlight the city’s Victorian architecture, Native American history, the bay’s industrial history, the Madaket harbor cruise and more. Videos could show highlights from the kinetic sculpture race and the Perilous Plunge. And the city could promote the whole thing to both locals and travelers. “There really are an awful lot of tourists on Highway 101 coming through the redwoods,” Brennan said. “It’s just a matter of how you capture them, bring them off of the 101 and into Eureka, because it really is a delightful place.” He’d driven through the city for years without realizing it sits on the water.
Eureka is currently trying to bring more people to that waterfront by landing a tenant for a seafood café in the fisherman’s terminal building (a business in Shelter Cove is reportedly interested) and permitting a hotel next door. Community Development Director Robert Wall said the city is finishing up an environmental impact report for the hotel. A challenge for the city, Wall said, is that so much waterfront land is zoned coastal-dependent industrial, which means it’s reserved for businesses that depend on the waterfront. That has frustrated other business applicants hoping to locate there. (Lost Coast Brewery was one recent example.) “But you have to balance that with the importance of [that zoning],” Wall said. He explained that there’s only so much land to go around with the deep water and port facilities that can support coastal-dependent industrial use. While the city so far lacks a formal walking tour, it’s making progress on walkability with the recent completion of a section of new trail that leads south from Truesdale Avenue (near the Bayshore Mall) and along the Elk River waterfront to Herrick Avenue at the south end of Eureka. Wall said that environmental work is underway for two more sections of the “Hikshari Trail” that will extend it another 2 ½ miles to the boardwalk on C Street. The plan is for the trail eventually to extend all the way to Target on the northeast edge of town.
A favorite phrase among
speakers at the conference was “the triple bottom line.” Again and again, in talking about different types of projects, presenters mentioned this three-pronged apcontinued on next page

proach, which incorporates the “three pillars” of modern project planning: people, planet and profit. It came up during the full sessions held each morning, when coffeefueled participants gathered at round tables in an enormous conference room and learned about big-picture concepts such as the National Working Waterfront Network, a collaborative problem-solving alliance whose early projects include economic and environmental work in Trinidad Harbor. The three pillars stood tall later each day, during smaller sessions that ranged from tips on getting mitigation credits for removing creosote-treated harbor pilings to advances in seawall engineering, climate change issues, conflict resolution and more. The term’s ubiquity reflects a growing acknowledgement that social, ecological and economic values don’t have to conflict — that, in fact, they’re inseparable when it comes to activities on working waterways and waterfronts. The tone was set on the symposium’s first night with a screening of Ocean Frontiers, a documentary about new approaches — and unlikely alliances — in ocean management. And here’s where one validation of local practices came in (though not explicitly): One of the film’s four segments tells the story of Iowa farmers who learn that nitrogen and phosphorous from wayward fertilizers have been leeching into the Mississippi River and flowing into the Gulf of Mexico where they’ve created a dead zone the size of Massachusetts. In an attempt to remedy the problem, the concerned farmers (and they were concerned, after taking a fishing field trip to see the damage) have taken a trick from Arcata’s playbook: building wetlands to create natural filtration systems. (One farmer was especially proud of the longneck swans that had found his ponds — reminiscent of the egrets and herons that perch at our local filtration ponds in the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary.) This sort of collaborative approach is the specialty of John Hansen, an Oaklandbased nonprofit organizer who gave a presentation outlining his work as coordinator of the West Coast Ecosystem-Based Management Network. That’s another term — “ecosystem-based management” — that came up frequently, and like the “triple bottom line” it refers to interconnectivity between nature and human activities. Hansen’s network is a partnership of eight community-based initiatives focused on achieving environmental goals

while considering social factors. They range geographically from a restoration plan for southern California’s Santa Monica Bay to an environmental protection effort in northern Washington’s San Juan Islands. Just about smack-dab in the middle is the Humboldt Bay Initiative, a collaborative effort that in the past six years has helped the Humboldt region land more than half a million dollars in grant funding, plus thousands of in-kind hours from local groups. The agencies involved came up with a strategic plan to address sea level rise, combat invasive species and promote sustainable development. The successes came in part because more than 80 participants — from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management and the Army Corps of Engineers to HSU, local nonprofits, the Wiyot Tribe and more — have agreed to a set of shared goals. And the approach is
guided by the principles of “ecosystembased management.” “So instead of only conservation goals there are often socio-economic goals as well,” said Becky Price-Hall, a watershed coordinator with the City of Trinidad who’s helping lead the initiative. The sea-level rise project started with a meticulous inventory of Humboldt Bay’s shoreline by environmental planner Aldaron Laird (see “Aldaron’s Walkabout,” Jan. 5, 2012). Now, local governments are

using a $250,000 grant from the California Coastal Commission to figure out how to deal with the planet’s expanding oceans, which are projected to rise at least six inches by 2030 and a full foot by 2050. Dan Berman, director of conservation for the Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District, said that new high-resolution elevation maps, created with laser imaging technology, will help Eureka, Arcata, the county and other jurisdictions predict the impacts of rising seas. The 101 corridor between Arcata and Eureka is one particularly vulnerable spot, along with the Jacobs Avenue levee on Eureka’s north side and Hookton Slough near College of the Redwoods. And each of those areas is managed by a different government. “We need to have a coordinated approach to how we handle this,” Berman said. “We’ll sit down with the planning and public works staff from governments around the bay to figure out what this means for policy.” On another project, Price-Hall is working with Craig Benson, a watershed coordinator with the Redwood Community Action Agency, to improve water quality and salmonid habitat in Trinidad and Humboldt bays. She said that the strategic plan developed through the Humboldt Bay Initiative helped grease the wheels for a grant from the California Department of Conservation, which is funding the project.
Another hot topic at the
symposium was marine spatial planning, or MSP (the acronyms were flying). This refers to a process for mapping out who’s using a given waterway when and where. It’s like a land-use map for the ocean, and it allows for informed decision-making that balances ocean activities such as energy, recreation, conservation and industry. “We in Rhode Island consider marine spatial planning a way to plan our own destiny,” said Jennifer McCann during her symposium presentation. McCann, who works for the University of Rhode Island Coastal Resources Center and Rhode Island Sea Grant, explained how MSP helped the state governor work with scientists and fishermen to find a good spot for the offshore wind turbines he wanted built. “We’re considered the Saudi Arabia of wind,” McCann quipped. MSP has also been used in the development of marine protected areas on both coasts, including the underwater ocean parks established here in California through the Marine Life Protection Act. And on that issue, people from Humboldt can speak with authority. Jacque HostlerCarmesin, CEO of the Cher-Ae Heights Indian Community of the Trinidad Rancheria, drove up to Tacoma to talk about her experience with the MLPS initiative. “Tribes were not consulted in the formation of the law,” she told a room-full continued on page 15

Remodeling Our Wheel Estate By Rees Hughes
L from sushi to sandwiches, we’ve got you covered.
ong ago as a baby-faced innocent, I first read Jack Kerouac’s classic On the Road as I hitchhiked my way around Australia. Too naive to fully appreciate the nuance of Kerouac’s message, I embraced the superficial, carefree love of the walkabout. I liked to think that I was one of Kerouac’s people “who are mad to live … the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” There was far too much Kansas in me to be such a roman candle; perhaps a sparkler would define me better. The years have passed. Good years with no regrets. Lines have defined my face and gray suggests the wisdom that sometimes comes with age. My passion for travel has never disappeared, although it has been tempered for several decades by the responsibilities of life. And I am grateful that there are times the world still feels rich with possibility. With one daughter done with college and working in Los Angeles and our younger daughter finishing high school this June, I have found myself thinking about Kerouac. About his paean to the golden land ahead, where “all kinds of unforeseen events wait lurking to surprise you and make you glad you’re alive to see.” I started

looking at our aging and irrelevant minivan with new eyes. It had been relegated to the vehicular equivalent of the pasture, the transportation option of last resort. Maybe that old chassis had more adventure in it yet. A road trip across this amazing land of ours. Why not see if we can convert the van into a poor man’s (some who know me would phrase it as a “cheap man’s”) RV? We weren’t ready to step into the world of fifth-wheelers, wide bodies, pop-ups and sideouts. I had investigated the Volkswagen Eurovan, which hasn’t been available in the United States since 2003 and even used commands a hefty price. My friend Doug had advocated for a Sprinter van makeover, but it quickly became clear that there were too many zeros involved for a project that had to be considered highly speculative. After all, for 25 years most of our road trips have involved driving a beeline to San Francisco, Portland or Seattle. We don’t even know if we’ll like road trips (I can almost hear an audible gasp from Kerouac at such caution). When I first talked about it, I suspect our daughters feared that I would manage to locate an old VW Bus with an exterior ripe for painting. This would not be the first time I had managed to terminally embarrass them.
I pushed ahead. I am pretty certain that my wife, Amy, who has been my unwitting accomplice in this venture, was surprised when Rich and I removed the rear seats and added legs to a futon frame fitted for the van this past January. The foot of space under the futon frame created ample room for storage. That being said, there was no room for a toilet. And we’d have to be content with a small cooler and a Coleman stove. Although by early April there was still much left to do to transform this pumpkin into our carriage, it was time for us to channel our inner Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty and go spend a night out. A real field test. It was hard for Amy to feign enthusiasm. I suspect she had secretly hoped this day was at least a season away — if not an eternity. When the day arrived, my reminder was greeted with a whimper and a plea for postponement. “No more delays,” I insisted. It was early evening when we drove south from Eureka armed with only a vague plan. The first splat of rain created a few additional misgivings. I tried to give things a positive spin. “Just think,” I mused, “rain would really be depressing if we were tent camping. We’ll still be warm and dry.” Big smile. We turned east on Highway 36. The clouds settled into the towering redwoods along the Van Duzen as we approached Swimmer’s Delight, an inviting county park best known as a summer refuge from the coastal gloom. On this night, we had our choice of every campsite except for that of the camp host. We backed into a site filled with the melodic chant of the nearby river. The trillium were in full display, and I surprised a deer as I emerged onto the gravel bar. This is a little taste of the peace of the simpler life of the traveler. When the mist became rain, we retreated to our cozy confines. We hung an LED lamp from a side hook, creating enough light for reading. Whereas the rain would have been worrisome in a tent and the bedding unimaginably burdensome with a backpack, life was good in our mobile unit. It was lights out by 9:30 p.m. “Better than I thought it would be on all counts,” Amy admitted on our way home the next morning. She did have a growing list of essential modifications. Tint the windows, make curtains, purchase a foam topper for the futon mattress for starters. (My list was substantially shorter than Amy’s.) We began talking about a multi-month journey, where the calendar and the clock take a backseat to the adventure itself. Recently I’ve noticed posters promoting a film version of On the Road that was just released nationwide last month. It is a bit difficult to identify with the fetching faces of Kristen Stewart, Sam Riley and Garrett Hedlund. Even the trailer reminded me that I really had little in common with Jack Kerouac, Neal Cassady, William S. Burroughs or Allen Ginsberg … all icons of the Beat Generation. Amy and I share more with William Least Heat-Moon and the old 1975 Ford Econoline that he converted into his “six-by-ten bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, parlor” and drove for three months along America’s Blue Highways. Our inaugural trip worked well enough that we have started to talk about friends we can visit and places we want to see. Fall colors in New England. Taos. Chicago. South Dakota’s Badlands. And who knows what we will discover along the way. As Kerouac observed, “The road must eventually lead to the whole world.” l If you would like to write a Get Out!

Our Green Earth
More Humboldt Green Week, other 4/20 action and Swedish folk masters By Bob Doran
nother weekend and we’re still green with Earth Day and 4/20 upon us — and with them comes more of Humboldt Green Week. The unstoppable force behind Humboldt Green Week is Juliet Ferri, who works most of the year for Northcoast Horticulture Supply. For three months leading up to Earth Day and 4/20, she switches jobs and devotes her time to Humboldt Green Week LLC, a business that emerged from NHS to coordinate the growing number of April events. As she put it simply, “We’re giving people things that are fun to do, things for families, for everyone” — green things — “for gardeners and the environment, for the community.” And the community has signed on, everyone from the North Coast Storytellers, who offer “Bedtime Stories and Lullabies” for kids Friday night at the Sweet Spot in McKinleyville, to the river and beach cleanup folks whose Olde Time Earth Day Hoedown on Saturday afternoon (post-cleanup) is co-sponsored by Green Week. It sounds like a great party with Gunsafe rockin’ some country and Striped Pig Stringband playing for square dancers and Nigella Mahal calling the moves. (Incidentally, Gunsafe plays at Five Eleven Friday with The Plumb Uglies). Another Green Week centerpiece is Sunday’s Silent Disco at Merryman’s Beach House at Moonstone Beach. It works like this: Dancers are given headphones that come with a choice of channels so you can switch between EDM producers/DJs. There’s no music in the air, just in your head. The Green Week version runs from 4-11 p.m. with pretty much every estab-

lished EDM DJ/producer in Humboldt participating, among them PsyFi, Touch, J-Sun, Zanapod, Razzle Dazzle, Hypha, Grasshoppa, MaddHatta, Motion Potion, OnHell, Cacao, Tæo, JMorg and Rhizae. There’s also an art gallery, beer and wine served by KMUD, and food from Moonstone Grill. Since parking is tight at the beach, you can’t drive there — there’s a free shuttle running from Cher-Ae Heights Casino and NHS in McKinleyville. As noted last week, HGW events are well underway. Thursday’s happenings run the gamut. Six Rivers Brewing has a familyfriendly early show (starting at 6:30 p.m.) with Silver Hammer laying down all the Beatles’ tunes your kids know and love. BrownChicken BrownCow StringBand has a Green Week show at the Jambalaya that night. While the band has roots in the mountains of West Virginia, the players basically live on the road, traveling from town to town playing what you might call post-bluegrass, an original mix of old-time Appalachian country, gypsy-jazz, Celtic and folk. BCBCSB is joined by friends from The Bucky Walters, now playing as Buckskin Wallet. (Expect cross-over and collaboration.) The green action at the Arcata Theatre Lounge that night is Midnite, the St. Croix-based reggae band led by brothers Vaughn and Ron Benjamin. You always hear about reggae being an international music. This week’s shows at the ATL are a good demonstration of that. Friday’s big ATL show features Alborosie, a reggae star from Italy backed by The Shengen Clan, plus opening sets from Humboldt’s own Woven Roots and Rude Lion Sound. Tuesday the ATL has a People Productions show with Katchafire, a hot all-
Maori reggae outfit from New Zealand. While it started as a Bob Marley tribute band, Katchafire is now its own thing, touring worldwide with original material. Opening is the Hawaiian roots reggae groove band Maoli. Returning to Green Week action, we have the funk/soul/R&B/hip-hop/electro collective Cherry Royale at the Red Fox Friday night. The five-piece group out of Atlanta plays nu-soul along the lines of Orgone and Soulive, with Ms. Alvetta Newby-Jones out front on vocals. Also green: Circus of the Elements’ second annual “Fire Fusion 4/20” at the Mateel, which, as you might guess, is on Saturday (April 20). There’s a fire arts theme overall, with a wildly eclectic array of other entertainment including the Jenifer Breeze Band, Asha Nan, Midnight Raid, Rooster McClintock and Absynth Quintet on the indoor stage (with Sherae O’Shaughnessy as emcee). Outdoors you have a circus full of elemental fire spinners and dancers plus belly dancing by Marjhani, Tribal Oasis, Megz and Chakeetz, Cosmic Goo with Mark Zachary, T-Hawk, Mad River Rounders, DJ Matt W and comedy by Ba-Dum-Chh (the funny folk also offer “An Evening of Liquor and Laughter” Thursday at the Palm Lounge). Also in SoHum, but unrelated to Green Week, Petunia and The Vipers return to their favorite local roadhouse, the Riverwood Inn, for one more honky-tonk Saturday night. Meanwhile in Arcata, Full Moon Fever returns to the Jambalaya for a green collection of Petty tunes. The ATL has a green thing with keyboard jammer Melvin Seals and JGB (as in Jerry Garcia Band). After jamming with Jerry for years, after the guitarist died, Melvin basically inherited his band to keep the flame burning. The Red Fox has DJs and barbecue all day Saturday including some rappers, a bunch of the EDM artists named above, and later on The Show Devils: Enigma (the puzzle-piece tattoo guy) and Serana Rose, doing freaky sideshow tricks alongside locals like Shea Freelove. Humboldt Hospitality has a massive 420 party at the Eureka Inn with a couple dozen DJs, rappers and EDM producers spread around three stages, one in the Palm Lounge, another in the ballroom and a third poolside. The party even stretches to Sunday with an 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. mimosa brunch bass bash with Tariq, Touch and DJ Trey laying down beats. The Ocean Grove has what has to be the most seriously 420-ish event, The
Humboldt Mecca Cup. This one’s a judged bud/hash/dabs competition a la the Cannabis Cup, for smokers. As noted on the Mecca website, “Cup patrons must be at least 18 years of age and must present their 215 script at the door for access.” There’s also a music component (without the same cup entry requirements) featuring Jamaican dancehall reggae star Lutan Fya and those ambassadors of the Humboldt brand, Potluck. OK, let’s leave Green Week behind and move on to something completely different: a Wednesday night show at the Arcata Playhouse by Väsen, one of the top folk bands in Sweden. After hearing about the show and the band from friends, I got a call from fiddler/cellist Tristan Clarridge, who first learned about Väsen from his friend/mentor Daryl Anger. “He sent us an email and insisted we go see them; since then, we’ve seen them every time we could.” What does he like about the band and its members? To start with, they’re virtuosos: Olov Johansson on the Swedish nyckelharpa (a keyed fiddle), Mikael Marin on viola and Roger Tallroth on guitar. “And,” says Tristan, “there’s something about musicians who have played together for decades — it’s like the three of them are of one mind. They put out this highenergy wall of sound, but it’s grounded in traditional folk music. In Sweden that’s much more mainstream than it is here.” He continued, “They’re only in the states for a week; they had a free night, and they’re like the best band in the world, so we had to make sure they played Arcata.” Opening the show (of course), The Bee Eaters, with Tristan on cello, his sister Tashina on fiddle and Simon Chrisman on hammered dulcimer. More magic music. Don’t miss it. Also Wednesday: Built to Spill alt. rocks HumBrews; Infected Mushroom infects ATL. What else? Bassist Drew Mohr‘s latest band, Balls Deep, debuts Thursday at the Jambalaya. Perhaps the opposite: Chastity Belt, The Lost Luvs and Cliterate play Friday at the Palm Lounge. And Saturday is Missing Link Soul Night No. 18 at Humboldt Brews, “18K Gold Soulstravaganza!” We’ll end with one final Green Week happening: Friday night at the Logger Bar, after the Dell’Arte students present an evening of tragedy, the bar goes disco, and not silent, no EDM, more like old school ’80s disco ball music, to dance the sadness away. What else can you do? Bonus: $1 from each drink goes to Dell’Arte. Groovy. l

Trashy Pot Talks You’ve heard the horror stories: Water illegally diverted from rivers and streams, harming fisheries. Rodenticide killing Pacific fishers — sleek, handsome forest characters that are federally protected. Torn up land polluted with fertilizers and more, and heaps of filth left by greedy dipshit humans — feces and trash and plastic piping and more. All in the aid of illicit marijuana grows out in our wild places. Then there are the indoor grows — massive suckers of energy and sometime causes of house fires. And, hell, step inside the body: Think inhaling that toxin-laced bud is good for you? Maybe some folks are growing weed with an eco-conscience. But many, many are not. If any of this concerns you, you’ll be happy to know that Humboldt State University is hosting its first-ever Earth Day Symposium on Marijuana and the Environment this Friday and Saturday. The symposium is called “Communities and Landscapes in the Balance: The Crossroads of Environmental Protection and Marijuana Agriculture.” And, yes, it is sponsored by the university’s new, Jimmy Kimmel-blessed Humboldt Institute for Interdisciplinary Marijuana Research, along with the sociology department, environher forthcoming poetry collection, Mexican Jenny and Other Poems.
Bedtime Stories and Lullabies. 6-8 p.m. The Sweet Spot, 1300 Hiller Rd. McKinleyville. North Coast Storytellers provide stories and music for the little ones as part of Humboldt Green Week. Pajamas welcome.
Earth Day Pot Impact Forum. 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Native Forum, BSS Building, HSU. Humboldt Institute for Interdisciplinary Marijuana Research presents “Communities and Landscapes in the Balance: The Crossroads of Environmental Protection and Marijuana Agriculture.” Eureka Sequoia Garden Club. 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. First
ment and community program, Environmental Protection Information Center and the Salmonid Restoration Federation. On Friday, there will be talks. On Saturday, panels. Some of the topics include: Ecological data — what we know and what we need to know; Legal strategies to protect nature from marijuana crimes; Stories from the frontlines: reporting on the culture and practice of marijuana agriculture; Grassroots environmentalism and the marijuana industry: past, present and future; The ecological footprint of indoor marijuana agriculture; Plus many other sessions on public land management, private timberland impacts, environmental crimes, cultural and natural resource impacts on tribal lands, protecting fisheries, legislative updates and more. The symposium runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both April 19 and 20, in room 162 of the Native American Forum, which is in the Behavioral Social Sciences Building. You can register at humboldt.edu/dee/hiimr/. Or just show up, dude; registration is recommended, but not required. — Heidi Walters Covenant Church Carriage House, 2526 J St., Eureka. Meeting features talk by photographer Gary Todoroff on improving the quality of garden pictures. E-mail email@example.com. 442-1387.

For the Birds The birders are coming. Godwit Days are upon us, a time when Humboldt welcomes avian aficionados from far and wide, especially those obsessed with adding as many different birds as possible to their life lists. As the organizers note, the festival is held during the spring migration of the marbled godwit, one of many birds found locally. The week of activities, Thursday, April 18, through Tuesday, April 24, consists mainly of bird-watching tours, most of them in small groups, with expert guides helping visitors spot anything from shorebirds and spotted owls to warblers and quail. A few are free, but most require festival registration. Many tours are already full, but there are plenty of other things to do, even if you don’t get out into the bush with your binoculars. Headquarters for the 18th annual Godwit Days is the Arcata Community Center, where you’ll find bird- and nature-related vendors and exhibits, a student and professional bird art show and a silent auction (through Saturday) with birdy type items. There are even live birds of prey from Humboldt Wildlife Care Center so you can get up close and personal with raptors. Friends of the Arcata Marsh sponsor family
nature activities Saturday afternoon. The exhibition hall is open to the public free of charge on Friday 3-7:30 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The fest also includes a couple of public lectures: Friday starting at 6:30 p.m. at the community center, it’s a (free) two-parter with retired wildlife biologist Terry Schulz on “Owls I have Known, Confessions of a Genuine Strigiphile,” and Chris West, senior biologist with the Yurok Tribe, on the tribe’s work on reintroducing condors to the Klamath Basin. Saturday’s big day of birding culminates with a banquet followed by keynote speaker, Gary Langham, vice president and chief scientist of the National Audubon Society, speaking at the community center at 7:30 p.m. on “Creating an Audubon Guide to Future Bird Ranges: Implications for North American Bird Conservation.” Registered Godwit Days participants get a ticket when they sign up for the festival; others can purchase one at the community center for $10. For further details on all things Godwit Days call 707-826-7050 or go to www.godwitdays.org, where you’ll find a full schedule of tours and other activities. — Bob Doran

Chadwick Boseman stars as Jackie Robinson in 42.
By John J. Bennett firstname.lastname@example.org
42. I’ve long felt a weird sense of nostalgia for baseball of bygone eras. It must be something about the grainy newsreel footage or the baggy uniforms or the increasingly ludicrous sideburns and moustaches of those old heroes of the diamond. Whatever the reason, I take far more pleasure in baseball’s past than in its present. Writer/director Brian Helgeland (who has too many “screenplay by” credits to list, including brilliant adaptations of L.A. Confidential and Mystic River) had all the potential for creating a Jackie Robinson biopic that would get me there, coming alive with the crack of the bat and the roar of the crowd, maybe even providing some much-needed cultural commentary. It tries, valiantly at times, but never quite makes it. At some point in the mid-1990s, Spike Lee and Denzel Washington tried to get a Jackie Robinson project off the ground, but nobody was willing to pony up the cash. This could spur a conversation about racial bias in Hollywood, particularly how it has affected Lee, one of the best known, most woefully under-funded filmmakers in the business. But this may not

A glossy biopic about Jackie Robinson soft-pedals racism
be the place. And there’s no point lamenting what might have been. Helgeland tells the story of Robinson’s rookie season with the Brooklyn Dodgers and the series of pivotal, contentious moves leading up to it. I understand the motivation here: A full biography would dilute the dramatic intensity of the story, and probably require more than one movie. But by narrowing the focus, there is an inherent risk — one that 42 unfortunately succumbs to. With such a short timeline there’s precious little room to contextualize personal motives or cultural mores. For example, after an awkward expository voice-over, the story jumps straight to Dodgers head executive Branch Rickey (an uncharacteristically hammy Harrison Ford), who summarily pronounces that he’s bringing a player from the Negro Leagues to the ball club. We get no insight into his thought process or the poisonous fog of race-hate hanging over America in 1947. With the notable exception of one team manager (Alan Tudyk as an epithetspewing cracker), there’s no life given to the antipathy and fear Robinson must have confronted constantly. Helgeland keeps the institutionalized racism of the day at arm’s length, suggesting rather than showing it. Even when some of Robinson’s teammates mount a petition to keep him from playing, they come off as merely ignorant and strange, rather than hateful or cruel. Helgeland paints a picture of human nature as inherently good but muddied occasionally by bad judgment and misplaced traditionalism. I admire his optimism, but it may not be the right attitude for the subject matter. 42 is a story about a sea-change in American race relations, with professional baseball as the microcosm. But the way it’s told feels too easy, too simple and sentimental. It has more than a few good things going for it, but more than anything the movie left me wanting more — more insight into Robinson’s character, more verisimilitude about the culture of the day, and more baseball. PG13. 128m.
GINGER & ROSA. My initial reaction, upon leaving the theater, was that I had just watched a 17-year-old girl cry for an hour and a half. Ginger (Elle Fanning) cries almost constantly, usually in that hoarse, seismic way that precludes conscious thought. Fanning makes it all-too-real, and that may be the highest praise I have for Sally Potter’s movie. The title characters are teenaged best friends in London circa 1962. Ginger is the child of bohemian intellectuals ill-suited to child-rearing. Rosa is the darkly sexual daughter of a working single mother. As the specter of nuclear holocaust looms, their very intimate relationship turns down a dark, painful corridor. The lead actresses (Fanning and Alice Englert) inhabit their roles with an almost disturbing naturalism, and the vagaries of teen life in a bombed out post-war landscape ring true. But the characters surrounding them (including a miscast Christina Hendricks as Ginger’s mother) are generally unsympathetic, if not completely unlikeable. As Roland, Ginger’s philandering philosopher of a father, Alessandro Nivola delivers a note-perfect, almost unwatchable performance of selfishness embodied and rationalized by intellect. There isn’t a moment in Ginger & Rosa that I can look back on with fondness, but fair enough. It’s a tough little story about an unpleasant time and place; I can’t say I’ll watch it again, or that it even resonated, particularly. But it is a strong, competently made movie, and it did provoke a reaction. PG13. 90m. — John J. Bennett
OBLIVION. Ha ha. Tom Cruise’s career led him to Oblivion. (Forgive me.) In this sci-fi adventure he’s part of a “mopup crew” on a future Earth that’s been destroyed by alien war. But he finds inhabitants (including Morgan Freeman) who make him question his mission. PG13. 126m. THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES. A tattooed Ryan Gosling stars as a motorcycle
stunt driver who starts robbing banks to provide for his baby and baby-mama. Directed by Derek Cianfrance, whose last film, 2010’s Blue Valentine, was an emotional wrecking ball. R. 140m. Get ready to do “The Truffle Shuffle.” On Sunday, Richard Donner’s 1985 kids’ adventure flick The Goonies (based on a story by Steven Spielberg) comes to the Arcata Theatre Lounge at 6 p.m. The Humboldt County Library’s latest “Based on the Book” film series has the theme “Shadows and Fog: San Francisco Noir.” The series continues Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. (at the Eureka main branch) with Dark Passage (1947), starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Hosted by Michael Logan. Free.

book This is How You Lose Her – Junot Díaz Riverhead Books
Junot Díaz’s last work, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, won him a well-deserved Pulitzer. His new collection of short stories, This is How You Lose Her, sidesteps the problem of topping that insurmountable work by abandoning the epic for the episodic. For a Pulitzer Prize winner, Díaz is startlingly self-deprecating. To hear him tell it, he is a mediocre but extraordinarily lucky writer whose sparse bibliography reflects the few kernels of good material gleaned from the crumpled reams of awful writing he’s produced over the years. But Díaz’s humility and aggressive self-editing are to our benefit, translating into sleek, unassuming prose and evident in the painstakingly calibrated precision with which he delivers his emotional coups de grâce. By contrast, Díaz’s narrative also relies on a dense mélange of Spanish and American slang and cultural references as broad as Dominican history, American science fiction and comic books. These references are sometimes incomprehensible to anyone not, as Díaz’s protagonist and alter ego Yunior are, DominicanAmerican nerds living in New Jersey. The result can be daunting, but the benefit is that it situates Yunior with vivid specificity, faithfully presenting a detailed crosssection of the unique cultural space he occupies. With few exceptions, the stories in this collection focus on the now familiar Yunior, who has appeared in each of Díaz’s other works. With some overlap, it picks up Yunior’s story where Drown left off and proceeds to plot his life through the romantic relationships he forms and inevitably sabotages, mostly by cheating. By design, the narrowed focus compels us to view Yunior’s progression into manhood entirely through the prism of his troubled love life, forcing connections between his relationships with women and the family scenes that comprise several stories. And the stories are rife with explanations for Yunior’s inability to form healthy attachments: the adulterous father who abandons him; the player brother, abusive even while battling cancer; the relationship, at 16, with a woman decades his senior. We can pity him his childhood and commiserate with him in his heartbreak. But in the end, nothing quite absolves Yunior of his inveterate adultery. Some have criticized the collection as an implicit endorsement of male misbehavior, and while it’s true that Díaz never offers a full-throated disavowal of Yunior’s womanizing or the sexism inherent in his perspective, the collection is undeniably critical of them. For contrast, take Tucker Max, whose stories read like the fantasies of mildly sociopathic frat boys, tales of sexual exploit that end crowing bare-chested on the beer pong table, another notch in their bottle-opener. Díaz, on the other hand, fades out on an aging Yunior, self-flagellating with the memories of his blown romances, belatedly repentant and utterly alone. — Anthony Correale

If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

Bella Vista quarry, McKinleyVille, aBout 1885.
The Most Expensive Lighthouse (Part 1) By Barry Evans
n 1792 Captain George Vancouver, sailing north toward Alaska, gave the name “Dragon Rocks” to a reef six miles west of the nearest land, which he called “Point St. George” and which is now the site of Crescent City’s airport. By the time the steam side-wheeler Brother Jonathan foundered on the rocks on July 30, 1865, three months after the end of the Civil War, navigation charts were identifying the hazard by its present name, “St. George Reef.” The Brother Jonathan disaster, in which 225 lives were lost, prompted the Lighthouse Board to request funds to build a lighthouse on the reef. It took 17 years for the initial funds to come through and another 10 before the light shone for the first time. The direct predecessor of the St. George Reef light was the Tillamook Rock lighthouse, which Scottish engineer Charles Alexander Ballantyne completed in 1881 off the northern Oregon Coast. The next year, supported by a $50,000 appropriation from Congress, Ballantyne surveyed St. George Reef and chose the one-acre Northwest Seal Rock as the best construction site for what would become the most inaccessible lighthouse in the United States. The very quality that made the metamorphic rock so desirable as a foundation, its toughness, would also make it a nightmare to drill. However, in one hectic summer season of work, drillers and dynamite-blasters completed the base for the pier. By October 1883, when winter storms forced a hiatus in construction, the previously smooth rock had been sculpted into a stepped pyramid core ready to receive the first granite blocks for the lighthouse base. And that’s where Humboldt County played its part. Ballantyne originally thought granite would have to be shipped all the way from San Francisco Bay. In December 1883 he heard of
a source of first-quality granite on Bella Vista Hill, on the north bank of our Mad River, near present-day St. Maru Lane in McKinleyville. The location of the rock could hardly have been more convenient. Lumberman John Vance had recently completed his Mad River Railroad, from Essex (between Arcata and Blue Lake) across the river to a wharf on the Mad River Slough, taking it right past the Bella Vista Hill. Ballantyne contracted with an ex-captain of the Army Corps of Engineers, A.H. Payson, to quarry great chunks of granite and skid them down the hill to be loaded onto railroad skips. From there they were shipped by rail to the Mad River Slough and then barged, skips and all, down Humboldt Bay to Paysonville. A plaque (suitably set into a block of granite) at the Samoa Boat Ramp Park parking lot on the North Spit memorializes the site of Paysonville. It’s pretty idyllic now, but it must have been a scene of wild activity starting in 1884. Payton employed a gang of Italian stonecutters to offload the raw granite blocks and cut them down to exact size, allowing a tolerance of no more than three-sixteenths of an inch (in tough-as-nails granite!). The finished blocks weighed nearly three tons on average, while the largest tipped the scales at twice that. Construction on the lighthouse proper began in the spring of 1884. The first batch of a total of 1,339 dressed granite blocks was winched from a ship to the freshly hewn Northwest Seal Rock, where workers anchored the stones to bare rock with brass dowels that measured 2½ inches in diameter. By the end of that construction season, 13 rows had been set in place with sturdy mortise-and-tenon joints. l The saga of St. George’s Reef light continues next week.
