s marijuana planting season begins, medical growers and neighbors bothered by their gardens are still in the lurch as the county tries to come up with suitable guidelines for backyard gardens prevalent in the eastern and southern parts of the county. The board of supervisors’ struggle to come up with an ordinance limiting small, medical marijuana grows is indicative of several recurring issues: the public’s say in crafting a law, the distinction between the roles of the board and the planning commission, the vastly different takes on reasonable grows in different parts of the county, and confusion about what the ordinance is ultimately attempting to accomplish. Those issues, coupled with the looming troubles of this year’s growing season, led to some frustration at the supervisors’ April 22 meeting. That Tuesday, the board faced a request from the planning commission — represented by county planning and building Director Kevin Hamblin — for more money and more time to meet with the public regarding the proposed ordinance. The board, in a unanimous vote, denied the request and at least one supervisor emphatically asked that the planning commissioners make a recommendation to the board at their May 1 meeting. “They’ve already put this off two meetings and I don’t know if you remember, but I’ve been harping on this thing,” an exasperated-sounding 5th District Supervisor Ryan Sundberg said at the meeting. “[Growers] are going to start planting. … The people are buying their soil. They don’t know what the rules are right now. I don’t think that’s fair for the people that are growing legit medical marijuana and I don’t think it’s fair for the neighbors.” Some county supervisors have been seeking an ordinance to reduce marijuana nuisances for years. In March 2013, one draft bill — the result of more than a year of meetings and research — was presented to the board. After the board gathered public comment over the course of three

meetings and online, 3rd District Supervisor Mark Lovelace and Sundberg formed the Medical Marijuana Subcommittee. That group brought back the draft ordinance to the board in October 2013, recommending several areas for consideration: Prohibiting outdoor cultivation on property under a half-acre; limiting the number of mature plants to five per parcel; a maximum of 50 feet of canopy cover from mature plants; and creating 20-foot offsets from neighboring parcels and 600foot offsets from schools, parks, churches and Native American cultural sites. Supervisors gave the go-ahead to craft an ordinance and the planning commission began to review the draft document in December. The commission held public hearings at its last two meetings, but ended its discussion of the ordinance on April 3, asking the supervisors to allocate nearly $5,000 to cover the costs of holding additional public meetings in the eastern and southern parts of the county. The commission hadn’t had a chance to deliberate on the ordinance, Hamblin told the supervisors, or gather what it felt was enough public input. Sundberg seemed flustered by the commission’s request, though he said he understood, with a relatively new makeup of the commission (five of the seven commissioners have been appointed since the beginning of 2013), why its members felt they needed more input. Both a voicemail and email left for Sundberg seeking comment for this story went unreturned by deadline. Lovelace, on the phone on his way back from the Bay Area late last week, said there wasn’t much attendance at previous board discussions of the ordinance — though a March 6 planning commission meeting saw a large turnout from concerned citizens. “I understand the concerns of folks from the outlying areas about policies that affect them,” Lovelace said. “To some degree, you can put out the invitation and let them know a meeting is happening, but if you don’t provide the input when you ask for it, there’s not really much we can do at this point.”

Her Spa Awaits…

made their voice very, very clear.” Fennell essentially agreed with that assessment. The draft ordinance’s prohibition of outdoor grows on parcels smaller than a half-acre has been of particular concern, she wrote in an email. “People in the more rural areas are very often committed to a more natural method of growing,” she wrote. “They see growing indoors as detrimental to the environment and our limited housing stock. It would also cost a lot more to grow indoors than planting a few seeds in the garden. I’ve also heard the concern that forced indoor growing would create a big problem for tenants and landlords. Frivolous complaints are another concern. And I’ve heard concerns about limiting the canopy to 50 square feet.” Lovelace wasn’t sure if different regulations in different parts of the county would work, though. “It does start to look like what you call spot zoning, where you’re having it apply to only one specific circumstance,” he said. “That’s not fair. I have concerns about how and whether that should be applied.” Lovelace called for more input from growers and their neighbors, saying that the specific size and setback limits were things that should come directly from affected residents. Ultimately, he pointed out, the ordinance is being designed as a land-use regulation. It will be complaint-driven and violations will be dealt with by fines and civil action, not law enforcement. That’s a distinction that Hamblin said is lost in much of the discussion. It’s not intended to go after commercial grows, or make any determination about how much medical marijuana people should or can use. It’s simply designed to regulate how much a medical grow’s smelly output should be allowed to impact its neighbors. And because it’s a good neighbor ordinance, areas where growers and their neighbors are more liberal are less likely to be affected. First District Supervisor Rex Bohn also weighed in at the April 22 meeting, saying it’s not a battle between the interests of Willow Creek and the interests of Garberville. Instead, he said, the ordinance is about being a good neighbor: “If you’re a lousy neighbor and grow on the fence line and everything else, it’s your own damn fault.” l Editor’s Note: Just prior to deadline, The Journal learned a local attorney is threatening the county with litigation, alleging it violated state open meeting laws in crafating this proposed ordinance.

He added that there are more opportunities for input: The May 1 planning commission meeting and the supervisors’ next discussion of the ordinance, tentatively scheduled for May 6 if the commission agrees on its recommendations. Sundberg expressed frustration during the April 22 meeting at the slow movement of the ordinance, saying that he’d hoped it would be in effect by this year’s planting season. Lovelace shared that concern but said the timing shouldn’t prevent the board from moving forward. “The whole idea was to get something in place for this year for planting, to protect people for this year,” he said. “Now, it’s pretty late.” What does that mean for this year’s growing season? How will people know how much to plant, if an ordinance is likely to go into effect partway through the season? And if people who don’t come into compliance by the end of this season don’t get in trouble for their violations, what will keep them from planting outside the law next year? Lovelace said the law should go into effect soon — mid-season or not. “I think it’s fine to go forward immediately,” he said. “I think if you’re growing, you pay attention to things like this. Those people should be able to anticipate this is coming. Beyond that it takes a while for plants to grow and mature and that’s when the problems arrive. A lot of people grow more plants and thin them down to the best ones. By the time odor becomes a problem, this ordinance should be well in place before then.” Sundberg, in his April 22 motion to deny the request, initially sounded like he was suggesting that the commission look at different guidelines for different parts of the county, but was reminded that the board was simply discussing the budget request, not the content of the proposed ordinance. “I don’t think a one-size-fits-all policy’s going to work in this situation,” he said. “[Public opinions in the 5th and 2nd districts] are vastly, drastically different. And I actually didn’t know that at first. I thought we were going to do something countywide, but since there’s been more input it’s definitely different.” Sundberg characterized 5th District residents as deeply concerned about neighborhood grows and 2nd District residents in the south of the county as far more liberal with their backyard crops. “The 5th District has spoken,” he said. “I’ve heard a few comments about people who want to relax the numbers — the majority has been, ‘We need some relief in these towns that are being overrun.’ I also know that Garberville, Redway — Supervisor [Estelle] Fennell’s district — it’s almost the opposite. They don’t mind, they don’t want the intrusion. They showed up in huge numbers and

Blog Jammin’ Daniels’ great-great-grandmother survived the Indian Island Massacre of 1860, hiding on the island’s west side before gathering up seven young children who survived the attack and canoeing them across the bay to safety. The Blue Lake Rancheria held a 20th anniversary memorial and library rededication in Sylvia Daniels’ honor April 27. —Grant Scott Goforth

The tribe’s been researching reintroduction of the once-near-extinct bird for the past five years, in part by studying how its relative, the turkey vulture, inhabits the land, and also by looking at removing the barriers to its success as a species, such as poisoning from lead-bullet contamination in carcasses. Now the tribe has the go-ahead from the state and feds for “test releases” in the coming years. —Heidi Walters



One Hot Firehouse

Several hundred people turned out on April 26 to celebrate the grand reopening of the remarkably good-looking firehouse in Fieldbrook. Fire Chief Rich Grissom and his all-volunteer crew of fire fighters presented a plaque of appreciation to builder Gene Callahan and his wife, Chris, owners of Black Oak Construction. Skilled and unskilled workers, under the direction of project manager Cam Appleton, were fueled daily throughout the winter by homemade lunches and baked goodies that seemed to appear magically. The $350,000 remodel was completed under budget using all-volunteer labor and donations from area businesses. —Judy Hodgson

Mother of Student Killed in Bus Crash Sues FedEx

The mother of a prospective Humboldt State University student killed in an April 10 bus crash is suing FedEx, the bus line and the estate of the FedEx driver whose truck crossed the median and caused the collision. The LA Times reports that Rosa Rivera, mother of Dorsey High School student Jennifer Bonilla, filed the lawsuit, which seeks $100 million in damages, on April 22. The suit claims FedEx negligently operated its freight trucks, despite previous incidents of vehicles catching fire due to mechanical problems, driver error or improperly loaded cargo. Neither FedEx nor the bus line commented on the suit. —Grant Scott-Goforth l


Blue Lake Rancheria Honors Chairwoman

It’s been 30 years since the Blue Lake Rancheria regained its federal status, and 20 years since Sylvia Daniels — who was instrumental in the rancheria’s resurgence — died. By the late early 1980s, the Blue Lake Rancheria hadn’t been recognized by the federal government for nearly 20 years, according to a Times-Standard article at the time. The tribe had given up its status in exchange for the land it settled on in Blue Lake in the 1960s. But by the late ’70s, a class-action suit developed, accusing the federal government of improperly terminating tribal status in similar situations around California. Through Daniels’ work, the Blue Lake Rancheria was reinstated in 1984. She became the chairwoman of the Rancheria and led it passionately, her family says, until her death in 1994.



The Condors Are Coming

The Yurok Tribe could be releasing some California condors into the wild somewhere along the lower reaches of the Klamath River within the next three years, according to the Associated Press and a news release from the tribe. It’s been about a century since the huge, ponderous condor — called Preygo-neesh in Yurok — soared through these skies. It is an important being to the Yurok, as the tribe uses its feathers for ceremonial regalia and believes it was among the first animals placed on Earth by the Creator.





Wrecked Ship Was Eureka-Bound

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has located the sunken wreckage of the City of Chester, a passenger steamer that has lain underwater near the Golden Gate Bridge for 126 years. “The 202-foot long steamship City of Chester had just left San Francisco and was headed up the California coast to Eureka with 90 passengers on Aug. 22, 1888, when around 10 a.m. it was struck by the steamer Oceanic,” says a NOAA news release. “Impaled on Oceanic, which was arriving from Asia, City of Chester remained afloat for six minutes before sinking. Sixteen people died in the accident.” The 16 dead were all from the Chester: three crew members and 13 passengers, one of whom was Eureka resident C. H. Haney, a widow traveling with her relative, J.J. Loggie, according to a report at the time in the Daily Alta California. The 440-foot Oceanic suffered minimal damage and no losses. The disaster was the second worst in the bay. Initial news reports were tinged by the prevalent racism of the time against Chinese people but a subsequent inves-



tigation revealed that the Oceanic’s crew behaved heroically during the disaster, with one man leaping into the bitter-cold bay to save a little boy. Criticism turned to praise, then, says NOAA’s account of the wreck and its aftermath. —Heidi Walters GOVERNMENT

Martin Movement

The Eureka City Council voted on April 29 to award a nearly $4 million contract to Eureka-based Wahlund Construction to work on a segment of the big new pipe that will carry southern Eureka’s sewage directly to the Elk River Wastewater Treatment Plant by Humboldt Bay. The pipe, called the force main, is part of the Martin Slough Interceptor Project — that longin-the-making streamlining of the city’s sewer pipes and collectors to eliminate the around-the-world trip some of the city’s sewage currently makes before landing in the treatment plant. No, Wahlund’s crew won’t be yanking on that stuck drill steel left beneath Pine Hill by Apex Directional Drilling, the Portland-based company that walked off the job this spring over a contract dispute with the city (See “Stuck,” April 10). That’s in the first section of the new line — from the city golf course through the hill to just east of U.S. Highway 101/Broadway — which is on hold until the city comes up with a plan to unstick the steel and continue with the piping, says Eureka City Engineer Charles Roecklein. Wahlund was subcontracted to Apex to do the trenching portions of the force main. The new contract puts Wahlund in charge of the second section of it, from just east of the highway/Broadway, under the highway, and to the wastewater treatment plant. Wahlund will trench, and a new driller will do the drilling. It should take about five weeks. After the force main, there are still collectors to bid out and build. Roecklein says the city has to move quickly to finish the project by the end of this calendar year. “This thing has been stymied for so many years,” he says. “The whole community has been waiting for it to get done. And we’re really right at the 11th hour now.” — Heidi Walters l



the week in WEed

High Art By Grant Scott-Goforth


here does all the weedthemed art come from? There can be few subjects that engender such a vast body of work across a broad range of genres and mediums from devoted amateur artists. Go to Google Images and type in anything you can think of, preceded by the word “weed.” There you will find doctored photos of historical figures toking up (“weed abraham lincoln,” “weed mussolini”), gifs of starry-eyed Rasta felines (“weed cat”) and lessthan-pious depictions of holy figures (“weed jesus”). There are airbrushed cars, sculptures (some doubling as smoking contrivances), tattoos, origami, blacklight posters, rugs, tapestries, necklaces, earrings and stickers, most barely graduated from third period social studies binders. But weed-themed art isn’t just relegated to the margins of college syllabuses or DeviantART accounts. A recent exhibition at Los Angeles’ Known Gallery featured, among other things, a life-size indoor marijuana garden constructed out of LEGOs. And Eureka’s Piante Gallery is currently home to Randy Spicer’s exhibition of paintings “dealing with Humboldt County’s largest agriculture product.” Among them is a beaming, hatless (and out-of-season) Santa Claus — straight out of a Coke ad — clutching joints in both hands while exhaling a smoke ring. There’s more alluring weed art, like Jason Mecier’s relief portrait of Snoop Dogg (Lion?) constructed out of hash balls, buds and half-smoked joints. It’s one in a series of pop icons Mecier constructed from the cultural detritus that defines them. Or Gail Wright’s delicate recreations of webs constructed by spiders under the influence of drugs, including marijuana (now at the First Street Gallery in Eureka). That’s keeping it to “fine” art — popular music and movies are another discus-

sion, although they treat marijuana in largely similar ways: winking references, broad comic tropes and general reverence. Why the weed reverence? Does weed spark the creative mind? Or do “marijuana artists” like the pseudo-edginess of penciling a pro-weed message and the supposed counter-culture it represents? Does pasting a doobie into Gandhi’s hand feel comically subversive, sans the troubling cultural implications that a needle — or an opium pipe — hastily Photoshopped onto his person would bring? Beer — more widely consumed than pot, in the U.S. — doesn’t permeate the second-rate art world like marijuana. Maybe that’s because beer has long been a corporate commodity. Aside from wise-ass beer slogan T-shirts prevalent at brewfests, beer art is commercial art, by the businesses and for the businesses. And beer, and its ingredients, aren’t often part of company branding and marketing. Commercial beer art often evokes a lifestyle — sexy, active or leisurely — to be associated with the drink, rather than the specific feelings or flavors experienced. To be certain, those themes are present in weed art too (don’t Google “weed sexy” at work), but there’s no ad firm behind those amateur images, no calculated marketing campaign. Just a motivated someone with a set of Prismacolors and pastimes that include weed and … you know, anything else. Those artists may be a casualty of legalization that hasn’t been much discussed. We on the North Coast have been witnessing the birth of commercial weed art (researchers at the Humboldt Institute for Interdisciplinary Marijuana Research have been archiving years of marijuanathemed ads from North Coast media — including this paper). But when weed is legal — its stigma and anti-authority underground appeal dwindling by the minute — what will become of the hobbyists, the doodlers of bong-laden Sesame Street characters, the 3-D sculptors of heady (and busty) cartoonish pot-vixens, the fledgling collagists bound by duty to take each of history’s icons higher? What will become of weed art? ●

Jefferson Über Alles DREW HYLAND


he Six Californias ballot initiative is not the pipe dream of some secessionist Siskiyou County constable. This intriguing proposal, recently cleared to gather signatures, would subdivide the Golden State into six more sensibly sized political jurisdictions, each with its own capital, legislature and, notably, pair of U.S. Senators. Just think: A one-hour drive would deliver any voter to the state capitol. The thrust of the idea is that the Alturasbased cowpoke shares few, if any, of the environmental or social sensitivities of the 900-mile-distant Santa Monica Prius driver — and neither harbors any special affinity for the Bakersfieldian. If adopted this November, Los Angeles would be rebranded West California and we northerners would join 13 other top-of-state counties to form the State of Jefferson, with Redding — or possibly Eureka — becoming its likely capitol. Humboldt County Supervisor Rex Bohn believes the State of Jefferson, under the Six Californias proposal, would become an impoverished %&*@-hole, though he put it a bit more delicately. He’s got a point: A recent study out of Sacramento suggests that Jefferson’s GDP would hover somewhere around that of Mississippi. Of course, what Rex and the beard-scratchers in Sacramento overlook is all of the money we Northerners stand to make by holding our water ransom, and selling timber once unbound by environmental restrictions promulgated by control-freak Angelenos.

Making sense of it all

But a more-localized capitol would result in still other savings: A plane ticket from the Eureka/Arcata Airport to visit the existing state capitol, Sacramento, sets us northerners back a prohibitive $750. Individuals residing in Los Angeles —

which siphons 95 percent of the money out of Sacramento to build eight-lane freeways and suburban blight — fly to the state capitol for $154. That’s an 80 percent discount. Before you go rushing to Google Maps, the answer is: Arcata to Sacto, 199 air miles; L.A. to Sacto, 373 air miles. That’s right: We pay 80 percent more for the privilege of traveling 174 fewer miles. What this means is that for the price you pay to jump on a Sacramento-bound plane to protest GMO Frankenfoods, the Angeleno brings himself and his four buddies from the Monsanto distributorship. Thus, not only do the more-distant Southlanders vastly outnumber us in sheer quantity of voters, but Dodgers fans enjoy cut-rate, express-lane access to the corridors of influence.

Prop. 8: Enter Now to Win Valuable Prizes!

When Mozilla, Inc. CEO Brendan Eich was sacked last month over a political contribution he made to California’s Proposition 8, Eich became the most prominent — but hardly the first — executive asked to clean out his desk over support for the anti-gay-marriage initiative. Beating Eich to the Prop. 8 unemployment line were the likes of Scott Eckern, who was relieved of his duties as Artistic Director of the California Musical Theater, a major Sacramento non-profit. Within days of its publication on the Internet, the $1,000 check Eckern gave to Prop. 8 coffers rendered him suddenly unfit for employment. The Director of the Los Angeles Film Festival, Richard Raddon, was likewise hounded out of office after financial disclosures revealed that Raddon spent $1,500 backing the measure. What Eich, Eckern and Raddon have in common — besides being on the receiv-

ing end of torches and pitchforks — is that their contributions were, as dictated by law, posted to a name-searchable webpage. A consolation? As evidenced by local reaction, gainful employment on the North Coast is practically guaranteed to these, and other, Prop. 8 refugees. Alliance with Prop. 8 in Redwood Country, it seems, equates to robust job security. The Web tells all: The same search page that befell Mozilla’s geek-in-chief reveals a chamber of commerce-worthy cadre of prominent Eureka-area businesspersons, whose Prop. 8 backing hasn’t caused a ripple. Appointed government servants, too, are present — some in high places — with personal donations in support of Prop. 8 that far eclipsed Eich’s $1,000. It seems counterintuitive in this liberal neck of the woods — complete with a university and well-permeated “grow” culture — but could a lack of tolerance be the solution to Humboldt’s higher-thanaverage unemployment rate?

The Cobbler’s Children

Hooray! A wet spring has filled Ruth Lake and the drought is over. Mind you, the drought continues in parched SoCal. The desert dwellers in greater Palm Springs — with only 5 inches of annual rainfall — must be facing the prospect of brown golf courses, right? Riiiight. Turns out Palm Springers are laughing at us as they hose down the driveway and wash the Jag. Get this: Although we would-be Jeffersonians are net water exporters, our own wet stuff flows less expensively out of Droughtville faucets. You’d think 40-inches of yearly rainfall and a backyard better known as “Six Rivers National Forest” would cut us a break on the water bill, but you’d be mistaken. Happy customers of the Desert Water

Agency, which services Palm Springs, pay $1.29 for the same per-unit volume of water that Eurekans pay $1.88 for. And lest you attribute the Victorian Village’s ugly water rates to hook-up fees, wrong again: A one-inch meter comes online down in the desert for $10. In Eureka, it’s $55.

Beware of Emerging Markets

Philadelphia police recently flipped a hilarious, Brat Pack-worthy drug ring consisting of white preppy high school kids pushing skunk weed delivered to the Keystone State from — you guessed it — California. Marijuana, following the law of supply and demand, must now travel from the glutted Emerald Triangle to the Eastern Time zone in order to clear a modest profit. Here, the stuff essentially has become parsley: Hastily trimmed remnants were recently fished out of Eureka’s Hawthorn Street landfill, buds still attached. And no self-respecting Arcatan would actually purchase a joint. The $420,000 question is how decriminalization would impact the tri-county Emerald Triangle. Pot’s white-market emergence has long been touted as the secret sauce that would transform Humboldt into a 420-style Napa — enriching craft-growers while diminishing our need for fabric softener, turkey bags and a whole lot of cross-country postage. Spoiler alert: Subjected to the same government regulation as water, an ounce of Garberville’s finest will be cheaper in Huntington Beach than Redway. l

Crime Fighters

Our DA Candidates’ plans to rescue Humboldt from dark forces

By Thadeus Greenson


t might be the most powerful position in all of Humboldt. The county’s next district attorney will oversee a staff of nearly 60 people and wield the authority of the state to pursue criminal charges against local citizens, negotiate punishments and, in extreme cases, even pursue the death penalty. The Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office receives thousands of reports from local law enforcement agencies every year, and sifts through them to determine whether to pursue criminal cases or civil remedies against the subjects. The office’s prosecutors file charges and prosecute defendants, working with local law enforcement agencies, victims and witnesses to present cases to judges and juries. While commanding a salary of $157,000, the elected district attorney has the power to forever alter and destroy lives while pursuing justice in the name of the state of California. First elected to the office in 2002, the often-polarizing sitting District Attorney, Paul Gallegos, is not seeking re-election, leaving the race wide open. For the first time in more than a decade, voters will be left to choose from a slate of fresh

faces for the office, each of whom carry new ideas and approaches to prosecuting crime in Humboldt County. There’s Allan Dollison, the military veteran and former prosecutor; Elan Firpo, the former hightech engineer turned deputy district attorney who is the only candidate currently working in the office; Maggie Fleming, the longtime prosecutor who left Gallegos’ office to work in the county attorney’s office; and Arnie Klein, the retired deputy district attorney with decades of experience in courtrooms throughout the state. Each of the candidates took some time in recent weeks to sit down with the Journal to discuss his or her plans for the office and to weigh in on the central issues of the campaign. Here’s an overview of the issues and the candidates’ plans.

Understaffed and overworked

By just about any measure you choose, the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office is underfunded and understaffed, leaving prosecutors overworked with caseloads well beyond those recommended by the American Bar Association. At


the debates held in the DA’s race in recent months, the candidates have all lamented the situation, each pledging that his or her tenure in office will bring more county funds, more grants and more prosecutors into the office. It has clearly become the central issue of the campaign, with questions of plea bargains, case prioritization and the prosecution of serious violent felonies all coming back to questions of funding and staffing. So, how bad is the problem really? The short answer is: bad. The office currently has about 13 full-time equivalent attorneys, a number that includes Gallegos and Assistant District Attorney Kelly Neel — both of whom have a host of administrative duties in addition to prosecuting cases — a juvenile prosecutor and an environmental prosecutor. That leaves about nine full-time attorneys to handle almost all the adult felony and misdemeanor prosecutions for the county. In 2012 — the last year for which numbers are available — the office filed 2,299 felony cases and 4,429 misdemeanor ones, according to the California Department of Justice. That breaks down crudely to about 255 felony cases and 492 misdemeanor cases

for each of the nine full-time equivalent attorneys in the office, numbers that obliterate the American Bar Association’s recommendation that prosecutors handle no more than 150 felony cases or 500 misdemeanors in a year. The caseload of Humboldt prosecutors also stands in stark contrast to those of similar northern California counties. Mendocino County employed 18 prosecutors in 2012 to handle 1,456 felony and 3,191 misdemeanor cases, which equals about 80 felonies and 177 misdemeanor cases per attorney in the office, according to California Department of Justice statistics. Meanwhile, in 2012, Lake County employed 13 attorneys to prosecute its 1,126 felony and 1,921 misdemeanor cases, which breaks down to 86 felony and 147 misdemeanor cases per attorney. So, it’s clear prosecutors in Humboldt face a heftier workload than their neighbors. The disparity in caseloads seems to boil down to the fact that Mendocino and Lake counties have made funding their prosecutors’ offices a larger budget priority. Lake County, which has a population of roughly 66,000 and sees an average of

see specific types of cases through from start to finish. Some of the grants require matching funds from the county, but Firpo said she feels the supervisors would be willing to allocate some additional money if they felt they were getting a good return on their investment. Even without additional resources, Firpo said she thinks the office can be run more efficiently to better utilize the resources it has. The office is currently transitioning to a paperless records system that she says will free up some employee time to do other things. “There are about five people in the office whose job is now to move paper,” she said, adding that she would also work to better integrate the victim-witness office and the investigative bureau with the goal of taking some time consuming things off prosecutors’ plates, letting them focus more keenly on their cases. “There’s a lot of management work that would make the office more efficient,” she said. Fleming said the office simply needs to bring in outside resources and that she would aggressively seek grant funds, adding that she knows of specific grants that fund child, sex and elder abuse prosecutors, as well as others to handle drug cases. She said she’s already been in contact with state legislators about grant opportunities and ways to bring additional funds to the office. Additionally, Fleming said she would work hard to bring quality attorneys to the office by visiting law schools and recruiting new graduates, hoping to ease some of the retention issues that have led to vacant positions. In the absence of additional resources, Fleming said she would put intense focus on targeting violent and repeat offenders, “those who really impact our daily lives.” Fleming said the early resolution misdemeanor court — which sees roughly 70 percent of misdemeanor cases resolved with plea deals very early in the process — has been very effective, and that she’d look to expand it, if possible. Ultimately, Fleming said the office would have to prioritize and ask, “What are the cases we’re going to decide are going-to-trial worthy?” Klein said the Board of Supervisors simply hasn’t been educated on the true cost of crime in the local community, explaining that a run-of-the-mill mugging can leave a family with medical expenses, strand a business without an employee and tie up a courtroom for weeks, pulling jurors away from work as tax payers foot the bill for a judge, bailiff and attorneys to handle the case. “The costs just continue on and on,” Klein said, adding that he would work to educate the board on the

nuanced costs of crime on the community and his department’s needs. “I’d tell them, ‘If you don’t fund the DA’s office, it will all come crumbling down,” he said. “If they don’t give us the funding, it sends the message that the board doesn’t care about the community.” Without additional funding, Klein said he would work to make the office operate more efficiently, saying he has four or five experienced attorneys from outside the area who have committed to coming to Humboldt to work for him. Ultimately, Klein said the office would have to practice “legal triage,” focusing on the most violent offenders. Klein additionally said he would deputize local tribal attorneys to prosecute misdemeanors to relieve some of the burden on his office, and that he would bring district attorney investigators back into the courtroom to help attorneys with their cases.

Pleas, pleas and more pleas

Experts agree that, across the nation, more than 90 percent of criminal cases end with a plea of guilty. Plea bargains aren’t just pervasive — without them the entire criminal justice system would collapse. There wouldn’t be enough courtrooms and judges to try cases. Defendants’ right to a speedy trial would be trampled and it would be complete chaos. Virtually everyone agrees that plea bargains are a necessary part of the criminal justice system. But nowhere is a prosecutor’s discretion more apparent than in how he or she handles plea dispositions, as offers are meted out based on facts contained in police reports that are often shrouded from public view, and it’s the prosecutor who has the power to turn murder into manslaughter, strike offenses into simple felonies, and average felonies into misdemeanors. A judge ultimately has the discretion to accept or deny a plea agreement, but it’s rare that one rejects a negotiated disposition. The topic of plea bargains has come up in every district attorney debate to date — sometimes drawing feisty exchanges between the candidates. The Journal asked each of the candidates to weigh in on plea agreements, and to explain how they would oversee them to ensure consistency and community safety if elected. Dollison said the question of how plea bargains are handled in the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office is directly related to issues of staffing and funding.

care and work very hard, Dollison said, but unsustainable workloads often leave them looking to resolve cases as quickly and as easily as possible. That leads to some head-scratching deals, Dollison said. If elected, Dollison said he would institute a policy where pleas in all serious and violent cases are reviewed by him or a chief deputy to ensure consistency. “The goal needs to be convicting a defendant of the most serious crime they can be convicted of based on the facts of the case,” Dollison said. He added that he would, as a blanket policy, prohibit his office from entering into plea deals in murder cases until after a preliminary hearing to ensure the facts, strengths and weaknesses of the cases are properly and publicly vetted. Victims and their families need to have a voice at the table in plea dispositions, Dollison said, but they do not get a vote. “You don’t represent the victim or the family, you represent the entire community,” he said. Firpo said plea dispositions are tricky, and what might be a just outcome doesn’t always appear so to a watching public that isn’t privy to all the facts and legal challenges of a case. Ultimately, Firpo said

outcome isn’t their decision. Fleming said California law is specific in requiring prosecutors to state on the record in open court a factual basis for every plea disposition, stating clearly and specifically why a charge is being reduced or dismissed. She doesn’t believe that is happening now but said it would under her tenure. “We as a society don’t want backroom deals,” she said. “We want to know what’s going on.” If elected, Fleming said she would initially take on overseeing plea dispositions coming out of the office, reviewing all pleas in serious and violent felonies to make sure they are consistent and just. Noting that the district attorney has a responsibility to mentor every prosecutor

in the office, Fleming said she would discuss the decision making process with her attorneys, pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of cases that will ultimately shape their potential chances of success at trial. Then, Fleming said she would help her attorneys find the “just outcome.” Victims and their families, Fleming said, need to be involved in their process and provide input. But a district attorney represents all the people, she said, and a victim’s wishes don’t always align with justice or the best interests of society. Klein said there are simply some cases in which a prosecutor shouldn’t negotiate, leaving the defendant to plead as charged or go to trial. Pleading out those cases, Klein said, “sends a message to the

community that it’s not safe.” If elected, Klein said all dispositions of violent crimes would have to be reviewed and cleared by him to make sure the office was giving a “consistent and measured response to violence in Humboldt County.” But, Klein conceded, there aren’t enough hours in the day for a single person to review dispositions of all cases in the office, so he would limit his reviews to violent and high-profile cases. Klein also said he thinks it’s important for serious, violent felony cases to go to preliminary hearings, both to vet the facts and to allow attorneys to get a feeling for the case’s witnesses and how these individuals might perform at trial, which could impact the stance the office takes in negotiations. Ultimately, he said, the office needs to be more thoughtful and consistent in how it resolves cases. ● To get the candidates’ takes on other issues looming over the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office, and to see them identify and respond to what they perceive as the biggest criticism of their candidacies, visit www.northcoastjournal. com for an extended version of this story.

Well and truly bushwhacked. Photo by monica hubbard.


Tuck your pants and aim for the view By Linda Stansberry


et me preface this with a demand: Don’t bushwhack in your local park. City, state or national, I don’t care. Note that I use the word demand, not request. Stay on the trail your tax dollars paid for. Stamping trails over delicate flora will endear you to no one. I’m talking to you, Community-Foresthollow-stump hotboxers. But if you have access to a decent swath of private land, a good pair of hiking boots and a repository of geographical knowledge in the form of an old-timer or a GPS device, off-road is the way to go. Forget those old logging roads, sheep trails and ATV paths. There’s something special about setting your sights on an under-explored destination and forging your own route through the trackless wilderness. Bring along plenty of water and get ready to practice the following moves: The Tuck: This is when the more savvy members of your crew tuck their pant legs into their socks. The tenderfoot scoffs at their lack of fashion sense. The tenderfoot is wearing a fancy pair of $40 “hiking” shorts. The tenderfoot will live up to his or her title by the end of the day.

The Gaze: Set your sights on a far-off ridge or intriguing hollow. Decide to get there as the crow flies, come hell or high water (probably both). Lift your index finger and point. Stride forward. The Debate: No trails means plenty of contention among a group’s blowhards about how best to get to wherever it is you’re going. The Debate is usually cut short by an exasperated old-timer shouldering his or her pack and commencing The Slide. The Slide: The quickest way to the bottom of a ridge, preferably down a steep grade covered in slippery oak leaves. Bushwhacking etiquette dictates that you stagger your trajectories so as to keep your hiking boots from making contact with your fellow sliders’ heads, and that you yank some habitat-encroaching baby firs out of the ground during your descent

to the creek bed. At least tell your fellow bushwhackers that’s what you were doing, anyway, not that you were grasping at firs in an attempt to slow down. The Wobble: Creek-poppin’ is real, y’all. Not recommended for delicate fish habitats, but damned good fun otherwise. Balancing on slippery rocks as you make your way upstream is a great way to build your core muscles, and the concentration required keeps you completely in the moment. The repetitive nature of your standard hiking stride will allow for a little daydreaming, but challenge of creek poppin’ means you’ll be immersed in the unique beauty of our region’s riparian zones: seasonal waterfalls, deep dark pools and eerie tangles of accumulated woody debris. And of course, sometimes you get fully immersed. In water. The Scramble: You have no idea what your leg muscles are capable of until you’re hauling your waterlogged butt out of the creek bed and up a ridge, hoping that once you reach the top you’ll end up somewhere near where The Gaze landed. The Crawl: You are not Danny Trejo. Leave the machete at home. Brush-poppers with a true love of the land do not hack through the huckleberry brush, but wiggle through its sinewy grasp, letting it spring back as though untouched. Get ready to get up close and personal with the ground, because huckleberry brush does not favor the upright biped. The Lurch: The final few steps to the top of the ridge. At least we’re pretty sure it was the original ridge we’d aimed for. Close enough. Take a seat and enjoy the view. The Strip-Tease: This is what happens when the scratched and limping tenderfoot discovers that crawling through huckleberry brush (where deer occasionally bed down) is a great way to pick up ticks, especially if you haven’t performed The Tuck. The Sigh: After sufficient view-appreciation, this is an appropriate reaction to realizing you’ll have to do it all over again to get back. Repeat from The Slide before the sun sets. l

You are not Danny Trejo. Leave the machete at home.

22 North Coast Journal • Thursday, May 1, 2014 •

By Ken Weiderman

Finding an available space in a high-traffic zone was only one part of the challenge, the other was convincing the building owner to go along for the ride. The success of last year’s pop-up show, in which 52 percent of the work sold, helped. Only 10 days before the show, it’s on. Lease in hand, Jackson’s passing the reins over to Matsumoto. “It’s fucking wonderful for me to do the beginning part,” he says, sipping his coffee from a lime-green mug. He loves being able to “shlep the work around, kiss the babies and shake the hands and figure out where we’re going to put it.” And once that’s done, he likes even more to “turn it over to [Matsumoto] and be like, ‘Here’s a giant pile of stuff and now you gotta figure out where it all goes!’” Luckily, figuring out how to make sense of piles of art is Matsumoto’s specialty. Witty and giggly, clad in overalls and cat-eye glasses, she’s spent years moving pedestals, banging nails and painting walls as the Museum and Gallery instructor at HSU. From the moment they get the keys on Friday night, it’s Matsumoto’s job to make Saturday’s opening look good. One of the things she loves about the show is the diversity of work the artists bring. And it may look easy to hang an art show, but as Matsumoto puts it, there has to be an “invisible cohesion” to everything. A successful show hides the effort it takes to create order and organization that looks natural. Dashing about just hours before the public ambles in, Matsumoto’s toothgritting labor makes Jackson’s hobnobbing to find a spot seem jovial. Take for example Lush Newton’s painted

yard flamingo, “The Flash,” and Gina Tuzzi’s “Shuggie” acrylic ink and carbon drawings. How do you reconcile the glaring differences between a 3D yard ornament wearing a black mask and lemon lightning bolts alongside a pinpoint portrait of a soul singer whose hair vibrates with the wild colors of ’60s tie-dye? Matsumoto relishes the challenge. Each piece needs its own space to breathe so that a viewer can appreciate Newton’s hero as much as Tuzzi’s. That moment of contemplation is where the Pop Up show differs from every other stable of art this Saturday. Like it? Wanna buy it? You’d better act fast! While most galleries offer the delayed gratification of waiting a month or more to take your newly acquired piece home, Who Are You Supposed To Be? obliges buyers to take their prizes home directly upon purchase. Jackson says, “We want people to be bitten by the art bug!” The immediacy of pulling fresh work from the wall is part of the show, turning viewers into participants. Hesitate, and your favorite piece will vanish before you know it. Act, and you become the show. As the work leaves the space, the show takes on a life of its own. At the end of the evening, Matsumoto looks forward to packing up what little is left behind, taking one last glance at the empty room, and then “locking the door like it never happened.” l Ken Weiderman encourages visitors to arrive early to avoid looking at blank walls. The show runs on Saturday, May 3 from 5-10pm at 530 F St.

Viva Color!

Paprika is the new black By Jada Calypso Brotman FIND A HAPPY HOUR TODAY, AT: 2 DOORS DOWN

























ast year was my Year of Tarragon. I was incapable of making any savory dish without it, whining and beatings by friends notwithstanding. This year, Jada is All About Paprika. My father has been screaming about paprika for years — he has even dried and ground his own with peppers purchased at the farmers market. I am of course far too slothful for any such activity, but he gives me some, and it’s easy to order different varieties online (”Add to Cart,” April 3). It’s worth buying the foreign varieties; the difference really is palpable. Paprika, for those who think of it as a decorative addon that delivers the flavor of gritty mud, needs to be heated to let its bouquet

of sweet spiciness blossom fully. I always imagine the Spice from Dune tasting like paprika: earthy and sort of sweet, like cave air — verdant, almost. Hungarian paprika in America is sold primarily in sweet or hot, although mind-blowing varieties are available in Europe. The spice house ( has a half-sharp, which is both sweet and hot, although I suppose you could just buy Hungarian paprikas locally and mix them. Hungarian paprika is touted as yielding health benefits galore (think of hale and hearty Hungarians, hunting and harvesting) and it’s mild enough to use by the tablespoon, which makes it particularly useful for adding color. You don’t realize how much you

Corn and Leek Chowder with Paprika Ingredients and method: 1 large leek, trimmed, sliced and washed 1 tablespoon butter 4 cups chicken stock 2 or 3 ears of fresh corn 2 tablespoons cream 2 teaspoons sweet red paprika salt

want to add color until you start. Because you can use Hungarian sweet paprika in large quantities, you can color most things with it. Mix ¼ cup of paprika into a paste with a little thyme, salt, pepper, smashed garlic and olive oil, and coat fish, chicken or potatoes with it before cooking and your food will look ruddy and handsome. Mix mayonnaise with lots of paprika and chopped capers to give your sandwich, steamed asparagus and artichokes a lovely reddish sauce. I never pan-fry scallops without dusting each side thickly with paprika; it’s an excellent companion for

Chicken with Paprika and Buttermilk Sauté the leeks in a knob of butter. Add the stock and simmer for a few minutes. Add half of the fresh cut kernels from the corn. Mix all this in a blender and return it to the pan. Add the rest of the corn kernels, cream, paprika and salt to taste. Simmer for a few minutes. Serve and enjoy.

the sweetness of seafood. Spanish paprika has been smoked, which is a stronger flavor, so unless you want your dish to taste like a potage of liquid smoke, you want to go easy on the ol’ Spanish. It also comes in hot and sweet. Different brands, unsurprisingly, taste different; my family prefers Szeged (because we like the town) and the Spice House choices. Paprika goes stale quickly, so keep it sealed like the dickens and use it like mad. These wonderful recipes were invented by Darius Brotman. ●

Ingredients and method: 4 chicken thighs 1 tablespoon butter 1 tablespoon olive oil 3/4 cup minced shallots 1/2 cup white wine (sauvignon blanc recommended) 2 tablespoon paprika 1 teaspoon white flour 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1 cup buttermilk 1/2 cup peeled, seeded tomatoes 1/4 cup heavy cream (optional) Heat the butter and oil in large sauté pan. Salt and pepper thighs, and fry them skin side down over a medium flame. Leave them to fry for about 15 minutes without turning, but loosen them in the pan from time to time. The skin will get beautifully crisp and brown.

Remove the thighs to a dish and leave them in a warm place. Pour the fat from the pan, leaving about 1 tablespoon. Stir-fry the shallots for a few minutes. Add a splash of wine and keep cooking until the wine is all evaporated and the shallots start to fry again. Stir in the paprika, flour and pepper, stir-fry for a moment, and add the rest of the wine. Stir well and add the buttermilk. (It’s OK if it curdles.) Add the tomatoes and mash them into the sauce. Put the chicken back into the pan, skin side up. Cover partly, and simmer over a low flame for 30 minutes. Remove the chicken to a serving dish and add cream to the sauce (optional) and simmer for a few more minutes. Taste carefully for salt — it might need a little. Serve the dish with rice or polenta.

et’s start off with Sunday. Often on Sundays, I like to stay in my pajamas and refuse to leave the house unless the excursion has to do with walking to the beach. I’m not religious, but a day of rest is a concept I embrace. This Sunday, however, includes a gospel breakfast and two shows so exceptional that I might believe in a higher power come Monday. Why not start your Sunday morning off with some food, singing and community transcendence? The Gospel Chicks (Jackie Dandeneau, Kristin Kirby and Sienna Nelson) bring their special brand of bluegrass gospel to the annual Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir Prayer Breakfast, May 4 at the Arcata Community Center. The Gospel Choir and the AIGC Youth Choir will perform at 10 a.m. after a 9 a.m. continental breakfast. Tickets are available at the door, at Wildberries, People’s Records and The Works. Suggested donation is $15, $12 seniors and students, and free for kids under 5. Moving into the evening, Vancouver, B.C.’s The Sumner Brothers is on a tour, which will see them play with several notable bands including Chris Hillman (Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers) Willie Wat-

son (Old Crow Medicine Show) and The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit. But first, I was surprised to see, they’re playing a house gig in Arcata, specifically at the Sanctuary. The brothers have been featured on KEXP’s live sessions series (if you don’t know KEXP, it’s a public station out of Seattle that highlights excellent bands new and old). The brothers Sumner play that kind of haunting roots music that keeps you listening one song after the other and the kind of country that makes you remember there’s a good kind of country: Johnny Cash, of course, Lucinda Williams, Hank Williams — you get the idea. Tickets at Wildwood, $8, $10 at the door, show time at 7 p.m. And here we get to the conflict moment of this unfolding Sunday story — the devil’s in the details? Playing at the same time in the same town as The Sumner Brothers is Black Prairie, originally a casual side project of indie folk band The Decemberists, at the Arcata Playhouse — this is a pretty big deal, people! The band’s story started in 2007, when Chris Funk gathered local musicians he admired for a chance to write music and play instruments he wasn’t using in his role as guitarist in The Decemberists. He

invited bandmates Nate Query (bass) and Jenny Conlee (accordion), plus Annalissa Tornfelt (fiddle and vocals), Jon Neufeld (guitar), followed later by Decemberists’ John Moen (drums). Black Prairie’s sound followed a bluegrass script, but the band’s latest effort, Fortune, departs into melodic and, at times, hard-edged rock, which makes sense as it was produced by Vance Powell, best known for his work with The Dead Weather and Red Fang. These folks can play, obviously, and advance tickets are strongly recommended. They run $20 general, $18 members and are available at the usual locations and via Show’s at 8 p.m.

Vengeance is Meh The Other Woman and Brick Mansions skimp on fun By John J. Bennett


THE OTHER WOMAN. Imagine, if you will: Some would-be marketing whiz gets a wild hair, has the Farrelly brothers (Dumb and Dumber, There’s Something About Mary) mash-up Sex and the City with every cheating husband comedy every made, making double-sure not to spare the laxative and hair remover jokes in the second act. Then, in a final epiphany, he casts a former it-girl, a comedienne and a swimsuit model in the leads. The Other Woman plays a lot like the product of that supremely misguided, mostly imaginary process. I say mostly because I don’t think the Farrelly brothers did or would have anything to do with this, and it’s doubtful that one person, however strong-willed, could push a project like May 1 May 7

40 North Coast Journal • Thursday, May 1, 2014 •

it through to fruition. While directed by Nick Cassavetes, this is a movie that smacks of creation and revision by committee, with most of the comedy coming as an afterthought. Carly Whitten (Cameron Diaz) is a diamond-hard Manhattan corporate attorney who, after two decades (!) of casual flings, has finally settled into a monogamous relationship with Mark King (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), who seems to be her high-powered equal. He’s handsome, wears good suits, drives an Aston Martin, lives in Connecticut. But oh yeah, he’s also secretly married to the inexplicably dowdy Kate (Leslie Mann) who, like Carly, is oblivious to his pandemic philandering. Against all odds, the two women become friend/accomplices in a plot to uncover Mark’s wrongdoing. In the process, they draw his latest conquest Amber (Kate Upton) into their web of intrigue and discover that he’s been playing fast and loose not only with their hearts, but with the substantial sums his investors have been sinking into his questionable start-ups. This allows everyone to traipse around a variety of beautifully appointed homes and hotels in the Hamptons, the Bahamas and mid-town. Everything works out very well in the end, just not for Mark. I can’t claim to be an expert on the genre, but to anybody but a newborn this has to feel like a retread. The premise is too familiar, the jokes too telegraphed, the richesse too gratuitous for any of it to satisfy. Mann stands out occasionally with her hilarious, off-kilter reactions,

but she seems out of place here, as the writing never rises to her level of comedy. And when the jokes finally arrive, it feels like somebody suddenly realized that the movie wasn’t funny and then desperately forced in some bathroom humor. The Other Woman can’t decide whether to be a straight-ahead comedy or to hang on to some trailing edge of emotional authenticity; it accomplishes neither. PG13. 109m. BRICK MANSIONS. Crazy old coot Luc Besson (Leon the Professional, The Fifth Element), who refuses to stop rattling around in the belfry of the movie business, is at it again. This time out, he’s responsible for the screenplay, such as it is (it’s a remake of 2004’s Banlieue 13, which Besson and Bibi Naceri co-wrote). The action takes place in Detroit, 2018. The city has continued its rapid decay, and the central housing project of the title has been surrounded by walls and military guard posts, leaving the residents without infrastructure or assistance. Inside, Lino (David Belle) wages a one-man drug war against Tremaine Alexander (RZA), using only his wits and his mad parkour skills. Meanwhile, undercover narcotics detective Damien Collier (the late Paul Walker) has been climbing the ladder of Alexander’s organization and finds himself with only the kingpin left on his to-do list. (Collier believes his father was murdered by Alexander in a raid some years before, so it’s personal). When the mayor tasks Collier with infiltrating Brick Mansions, joining forces with Lino, taking down Alexander, and — oh yeah — disarming the neutron bomb he’s somehow gotten his hands on, it seems like a perfect fit. Of course, he and Lino will have to learn to work together, despite Lino’s lifelong distrust of cops (and tendency toward remorseless murder, which is somehow never addressed). And then they’ll have to rescue Lino’s kidnapped ex-girlfriend and uncover the mayor’s real motives, etc. As we walked out of the theater, my wife said, “It’s kind of amazing how bad it was. It’s like they did it on purpose.” And she’s right: Brick Mansions borders on Crank levels of cheek and camp, but I don’t think it’s intentional. There’s no ironic winking here, just painfully misguided sincerity. The action scenes, apart from the opening chase, are dull and rushed at the same time, and the plot barely hangs together. It’s a fun, mindless action movie, but with the fun removed. PG13. 89m.


AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) takes his work home with him as he battles Electro (Jamie Foxx)

and OsCorp in this sequel to the franchise re-boot. PG13. 143m. LE WEEK-END. A British couple goes for a make-or-break second honeymoon in Paris. With Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan. R. 93m.


BEARS. John C. Reilly narrates this documentary full of real-world beauty and drama for kids and adults alike. G. 78m. CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER. The Avenger next door goes BAMF, this time battling the robo-armed Winter Soldier in a sequel that tops the first installment. PG13. 136m. DIVERGENT. Veronica Roth’s MyersBriggs dystopia — in which extraordinary teens are targets of state oppression — gets the Hunger Games franchise marketing treatment. PG13. 139m. DRAFT DAY. Compelling and entertaining sports biz drama about a manager (Kevin Costner) wheeling and dealing on the big day. PG13. 109m. GOD’S NOT DEAD. A devout college student debates his philosophy classmates and professor to prove God exists. It’s harder to convince us that Kevin Sorbo is a professor. PG. 113m. GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL. Wes Anderson’s Instagram-toned tale of hotel intrigue with concierge-Romeo Ralph Fiennes is his funniest and best written yet. PG13. 138m. A HAUNTED HOUSE 2. Another Wayans horror spoof with Jaime Pressly and Gabriel Iglesias. R. 86m. HEAVEN IS FOR REAL. Greg Kinnear plays the father of a boy who claims to have visited heaven in this safe and toothless family drama. PG. 99m. OCULUS. Karen Gillian tries to prove her parents were killed by a haunted antique mirror and clear her brother’s name. Should ruin rummage sales for everyone. R. 105m. THE QUIET ONES. A professor (Jared Harris) and his students decide the best place to experiment with curing a haunted young woman is a creepy country estate. PG13. 98m. RIO 2. Endangered macaws Blu and Jewel are back for franchise cash — ahem — and to find long-lost family in the Amazon. It’s a mess, but a colorful one the kids seem to like. G. 101m. TRANSCENDENCE. Scruffy genius Johnny Depp is uploaded for a digital afterlife. Its promising idea peters out, and the drama, love story and action never feel real. PG13. 119m. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill ●

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call PRIME PACIFIC at (707) 468-5300 Ext. 11 [telephone message recording] or you may can call PRIME PACIFIC at (707) 468-5300 Ext. 10 and talk to a person directly. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information (Ext. 11). THE BEST WAY TO VERIFY POSTPONEMENT INFORMATION IS TO ATTEND THE SCHEDULED SALE. The mortgagee or beneficiary is not required to give notice under CA Civil Code Section 2923.5.
