Find a Match

Editor: I have just one question after looking at your “Meet the Candidates” (“Crime Fighters,” May 1) breakdown for district attorney: Am I trying to figure out who to vote for DA or who I’ll match up best with on OKCupid? Pat Grace, Eureka

On Corky

Editor: I had to shout with glee upon seeing Terry Torgerson’s NCJ cartoon (May 1) lampooning Corky Cornwell. If there is a more obnoxious local personality making TV ads, I have yet to come across them. Not only are they terrible the first time they air, but, to add insult to injury, he reruns them over again: “My granddaughter Piper. ... “ I have developed a Pavlovian response to his voice; as soon as I hear “Hi folks, it’s Cor... “ I mute the TV in less than two seconds. Doug Felden, Eureka Editor: I beg to differ with Torgerson’s recent cartoon. I may find Corky Cornwell’s TV ads outrageous at times, but I don’t think they’re ridiculous. When I see Corky willing to go to the extremes he does, I see someone having fun portraying himself as an involved business owner who sincerely wants you to “come on in,” not a buffoon. Sherman Schapiro, Blue Lake

Sunny Disposition

Editor: I have been trying to understand a comment in the “The Week in Weed” column (April 17) for a couple of weeks now: “Not that outdoor marijuana is energy-free, by any stretch — Mills’ study indicates lighting makes up only 32 per cent of a grow’s electricity use.” This must be an error or Evan Mills is long on theory and short on practice. An outdoor garden, except for manual labor, is energy-free by every stretch. If lighting is 100 percent from the sun, where does the 32 percent figure come from? A couple of battery-driven timers? Pumping water? How does that compare with running a thousand watts or more of HID indoor lighting? I always enjoy Grant Scott-Goforth, but this quote paints a very unnecessarily bleak and inaccurate picture of outdoor growing which is so much more energy-efficient than indoor


gardens by a huge, long stretch. If you can grow corn, tomatoes, or any warm-weather crop, you can grow cannabis outdoors. Period. A 215 garden can teach you how to grow food and vice versa. No charge for the sunlight. Green, green, GREEN! Timothy Crlenjak, Eureka

DA Decisions

Editor: A district attorney’s office is unlike any other kind of place. The DA is the gatekeeper to the criminal courts; it requires a great deal of a person to do this correctly and well. For 11 years I was a deputy DA in four DA’s offices, serving under eight DAs. I’ve seen good and bad performance and I know what it takes to run a DA’s office. The Humboldt County DA’s office’s dysfunction and damage is real. Everyone in local law enforcement knows this tragic truth. We need someone with competence and integrity to fix that. I’m voting for Maggie Fleming for DA because she has impeccable ethics, long-proven service in many DA-office capacities, and understands what the job really entails. We need a tried-and-true professional with the values, ethics and skill sets it takes to be your district attorney. Maggie is the only candidate who has all of this. Paul Hagen, Arcata

Editor: In evaluating each DA candidate’s potential to effectively manage the office, voters should reflect on their own experience. Most have undoubtedly suffered under supervisors convinced they possessed some rare and mystical set of universally-applicable management skills that trumped inexperience and an incomplete familiarity with that which they managed. This view is particularly dangerous in a field as complex and highly-specialized as prosecutorial law, where few would consider four to five years of experience “seasoned” and where outcomes affect public safety not overseas manufacturing targets. Our next DA will need to build an effective team of prosecutors and staff, a challenge that will demand knowledgeable oversight, skilled mentoring and respectful collaboration and communication with other offices and agencies. With this in mind, a review of verifiable, relevant qualifications and testimonials from people with direct knowledge of the demands of the position will lead to the best choice for district attorney — Maggie Fleming. Jason White, McKinleyville Editor: We have, in our professional lives as judge and legislator, become wellacquainted with the necessary skills of a good DA. We believe that Maggie Fleming is the only candidate who has these skills. Her experience in trial work, her experience in management, her understanding of matters of policy and personnel, of knowing who should try which cases and who will do so effectively. Fleming has an excellent grasp of who she is and how to get done what must be done. We have, through decades of public service, sought to represent and ensure just

treatment of the disadvantaged, of those who frequently are not treated fairly. We trust Maggie Fleming to do right by all. She is fair and she is strong. If we are fortunate, she will be our next district attorney—and we are confident that our court system, our communities, and our county will be the better for it. Sally Tanner and Patricia Hofstetter, Ferndale Editor: As a parent of children who have struggled with drug addiction, I have been exposed more than anyone would ever desire to our criminal justice system. Often ignored in the process, even blamed for our loved one’s actions, we are also victims of the abuse of drugs. After one such proceeding, Deputy Prosecutor Allan Dollison turned to me and said — “good luck with your son.” With that, he showed me a human compassion that I hadn’t seen in others. That is just one of the reasons I support him. Another of the candidates is very heavily supported by local law enforcement. Is that really a good thing? Granted, our DA is the county’s chief law enforcement officer, but the office itself should maintain a circumspect and objective independence. Allan Dollison will bring that objectivity as our new district attorney. I’m voting for him and I hope you do too! Keath North, Loleta Editor: I strongly believe that Elan Firpo is the best choice for Humboldt County district attorney. I am a political science major at College of the Redwoods and have served as a student representative working with CR administration and state lobby groups for nearly two years. Firpo’s

candidacy compelled me to join her campaign for several reasons: Her commitment and loyalty to the DA’s office as senior felony prosecutor demonstrates a superior sense of duty and integrity, Firpo possesses a unique ability that is unparalleled by any other candidate to bring folks on the political left and right together to maintain a safe county that also keeps our environment clean, and her management experience builds a high confidence in her ability to successfully and effectively run the DA’s office much more efficiently than the other candidates. Thank you for your consideration. Jerred Scheive, Fortuna Editor: I won’t be voting for Elan Firpo. Two quotes from the Journal’s thought-provoking interview with the candidate (“Crime Fighters,” May 1): “There are about five people in the office whose job is now to move paper,” and, “That would essentially just be one attorney running an office full of paralegals,” regarding office efficiency and oversight of plea bargains, respectively. Contempt for staff! Those famed management skills seem imaginary in light of these statements. IQ does not a leader make. I’m not certain who will get my vote, but it won’t be Elan Firpo. Virginia Damron, Eureka

Supes On

Editor: Eureka citizens are concerned about the quality of life on their streets and the future that will be offered to their children. Our current representative on the board of supervisors doesn’t seem to understand what qualities provide for a healthy and prosperous future for the community. The concerns of land speculators and developers do not match the needs of the citizens. Chris Kerrigan supports development within existing neighborhoods, as opposed to resource lands on the outskirts of the county. Chris Kerrigan is the only candidate who understands the need to create a safe, walkable city. He rightly reminds us that employers want to come to areas where people want to be: places where their lives are not threatened by every trip to the store be it by car or walking. Kathy Srabian, Eureka Editor: Chris Kerrigan is smart, thoughtful, and aware of the issues that are important for

this county. I walked the city doorto-door with him and listened as he shared his vision with voters in my district. Chris will bring progressive values to the board instead of being the mouthpiece for moneyed supporters that think only of their own interests — not the common interest. Chris understands that we need to concentrate growth in the populated centers where the support services are instead of allowing more development in the rural agricultural and timber lands. He will also work on improving our core neighborhoods as he did for eight years as our city councilman, building the trail system throughout our county, increasing fair wage jobs, maximizing the economic values of our local resources and protecting our way of life on the beautiful North Coast. Please vote for Chris Kerrigan for 4th District Supervisor; we need him! Uma Bingham, Eureka Editor: When I first got to know Chris Kerrigan as he ran for City Council in 2000, he instantly struck me as someone who was beyond his years both in the depth of his knowledge and his desire to be involved in local politics. I witnessed firsthand his genuine compassion for the people of this community and his selfless pursuit of a better Eureka. I was ecstatic to learn that he would be running for Humboldt County supervisor. His passion for this area and the people that live here is contagious — so much so that I have been volunteering three nights a week with the campaign. Through that I have had the benefit of speaking with numerous residents of the 4th District, and it is clear that the people of Humboldt County hunger for a break from the status quo. Chris Kerrigan is the right person for the job. Derek Glavich, Eureka Editor: Do you want good housing for people of all income levels within our county? Do you want access to trails, and open

spaces that will be preserved for future generations? Do you want knowledgeable leaders who are responsive to their citizenry, not to special interests? If yes, consider Chris Kerrigan, a candidate with a record of committed and caring public service. The other choice for 4th District supervisor repeatedly votes for the interests of the developers and land speculators who paid for her to be in office. Her Planning Commission appointees ripped out a string of environmental protections from the GPU. Neither she, nor they, support trails or even investing in our cities. Chris Kerrigan is running in the 4th District, but on the Board of Supervisors he will serve the entire county. Even if you can’t vote for him, I urge you to support his campaign. Margaret Shaffer, Arcata Editor: The election, scheduled for June 3, is very important for Humboldt County. We are victim of the anti-democracy legal decision that money is speech. Money does not speak, it swears. For Humboldt County, the profanity is in the sabotage of the general plan. This document was formed with the input of hundreds of people who wrote letters, attended public forums and debated the issues for years. The members of the Gang of Four supervisors have made it their primary objective to gut the plan in favor of a wealthy minority with vested interests in the outcome. The Gang is moving to reverse the work of all of us to benefit their masters. Chris Kerrigan is clearly the best candidate for 4th District supervisor. His actions as a public representative speak volumes of his qualifications. He will help restore balance to the board of supervisors. Michael A. Tout, Eureka Editor: Especially at this time, when our county’s General Plan Update is finalizing policies for land use for the next 20 years, we need a board of supervisors with vision and courage. We need them to stand up to all of our personal self-serving and short term interests, and guide us in protecting the health and productivity of our land for the benefit of the whole community, and for the sake of future generations. We need them to seek out and understand the most qualified experts, who know how to find the best information and adapt it to our particular

region, people, and future prospects. And we need them to give us the assurance that we have all had the opportunity to be heard and respected. Because of her life experience, training, and freedom from economic obligations in this community, I believe Sharon Latour can do this for the 5th District. Joyce King, McKinleyville Editor: Virginia Bass, I’m told, is a nice person. I once thought so. This campaign has changed my mind. Her candidates statement makes dishonest claims, claims that she created jobs because of two Headwaters grants. Supervisors only give final approval of grants, they don’t do anything else and certainly can’t take credit for jobs created. One of the grants she lays claim to will not, according to the director of the Economic Development Department, even produce any new jobs. Doesn’t she have any real accomplishments to point to? She was just endorsed by the Building and Construction Trades Council. Since builders, land speculators and developers are who put her in office, and she has served them well in return, that endorsement makes sense. I’m tired of politicians who are bought and paid for. I want someone with integrity who really cares about our future. I will be voting for Chris Kerrigan. Sylvia De Rooy, Eureka Editor: Sharon Latour is running for 5th District supervisor for two reasons — she wants to ensure that democracy is alive and well with more than one person running for an office, and she is very concerned about the General Plan Update. I was appalled to read in the April 10 issue of the Times Standard, that there are currently six local waterways containing high levels of fecal bacteria. This can become a health risk — both to recreational users at places like Moonstone Beach, and to our local oyster industry. Sharon Latour has vowed to do everything to make sure Humboldt County is a healthy place to live — not just for people, but for wildlife too. It is vital that the General Plan Update ensures this (rather than being comprised as is proposed at the present time.) Sharon’s integrity and leadership cannot be surpassed. Vote for her for 5th District supervisor. Patricia Thornburgh, Arcata • North Coast Journal • Thursday, May 8, 2014

f a representative from Chevron lobbied the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors to change a draft ordinance into something more favorable to the company’s interests, would you want to know who he or she was? Now, replace the suit from Chevron with a Southern Humboldt marijuana grower with mud on his jeans. Would that change your stance? This is the central issue of a recent allegation that the Humboldt County Planning Commission trampled the state’s open meeting laws by asking speakers to pen their names to a sign-up sheet in order to address the commission on a draft outdoor medical marijuana ordinance. The ordinance has been working its way through the county process for years, its current incarnation coming through a board subcommittee consisting of 3rd District Supervisor Mark Lovelace and 5th District Supervisor Ryan Sundberg (See “What to Plant?,” May 1). The planning commission has been wrestling with the draft for the last couple of months, and continues to do so as growers throughout the county begin planting this year’s crop. The draft ordinance — which places strict limits on the size of grows on parcels of less than 5 acres — has drawn a fierce backlash from the county’s southern stretches, where growers feel it is too restrictive. A group of growers has even banded together to form Green Cannabis, a nonprofit group formed to oppose the draft that it argues will push grows indoors, creating more pollution and more profit for energy companies in the process. Meanwhile, neighbors of marijuana gardens in Willow Creek and elsewhere are upset that the ordinance is still in draft form and they may be left to deal with another sum-

mer of skunky marijuana odors and other impacts from their neighbor’s land. This is the general context from which Fred Fletcher, a Eureka lawyer representing Green Cannabis members and other local residents, served the county with a legal notice demanding that the county declare all past public meetings regarding the grow ordinance “null and void” and conduct them again. Specifically, Fletcher is arguing that the commission’s requirement that speakers sign in has had a chilling effect and is in violation of California’s Ralph M. Brown Act, a 1953 statute that guarantees the public’s right to attend and participate in local government meetings. The sign-in requirement, Fletcher argues, flies in the face of the Brown Act’s aim of encouraging public expression and participation, and has effectively silenced growers who fear incriminating themselves while testifying about engaging in activities that are still federally illegal. When the planning commission met on May 1 to again discuss the draft ordinance, speakers weren’t asked to sign in. But, Fletcher said, the issue remains far from settled. Fletcher’s allegations — which he says will be followed by litigation if the county doesn’t acquiesce — prompted some interesting and conflicting discussion from a pair of the state’s foremost Brown Act experts: Terry Francke, general counsel for CalAware, a nonprofit First Amendment Advocacy Group, who helped revise the Brown Act in 1994; and Peter Scheer, attorney executive director of the nonprofit First Amendment, who has litigated before the Supreme Court. “I believe it’s a violation,” Francke said in a recent phone interview. “The Brown Act allows local bodies to enact and enforce reasonable standards, guidelines or regula-

tions on speakers’ comments. And the key term is ‘reasonable.’ Why is it reasonable to know exactly who is speaking, especially since there is a tradition of constitutional conclusions that people do have a First Amendment right to speak anonymously when addressing the government or talking about government issues?” The Brown Act is clear in prohibiting government bodies from requiring citizens to sign in as a prerequisite for attending an open meeting as it may deter people from coming and participating, Francke and Fletcher both point out. But, Scheer said, attending a meeting and addressing a government body are two very different things. (Virtually all local governments ask residents to identify themselves and state their area of residence before addressing councils, boards and commissions during public comment periods, though enforcement of the provisions vary greatly). Sure, Scheer said, there are some cases that recognize that the constitution protects the right to anonymous speech in broad terms. But can that really carry over into a public government meeting and, perhaps more importantly, should it? “The problem is the context we’re talking about,” Scheer said. “It is impossible to both attend, stand up and be seen in front of everyone else at the meeting and be anonymous. The constitutional argument doesn’t really apply given that context. But as a policy matter, I think it’s fair to ask, ‘Why shouldn’t any legislative body be able to know who is addressing it, who is standing before it and urging some action?’” Think of the myriad of special interests that constantly lobby governments, Scheer said. Do we really want them doing so without identifying themselves? “Imagine Congress holding a hearing and people getting up and commenting on a provision of a major bill that’s being drafted and refusing to identify who they are or who they’re being paid to represent,” Scheer said. “That would be silly, and I think it would be no less silly to argue that you have a right to participate that way in front of a local government body. … I care about these issues, but I think that democracy, in fact, depends on people knowing who is speaking to them and that there’s nothing wrong with requiring that people stand behind their words and identify themselves if they want to participate, if they want to be civically engaged and active.” Francke agreed there shouldn’t be any problems with folks identifying themselves when addressing local government in most cases. But, he said, there are some situations that warrant anonymity. “In most cases people will not have a problem giving their true identity because

they’re trying to get help with something or trying to address a problem, but in some cases people want to express a controversial viewpoint that they believe could leave them open to retaliation if their identities are known and traceable,” he said, adding that people in those situations should be allowed to participate. Fletcher said it’s important to keep in mind that this is an issue that could carry some consequences for growers. Not only does marijuana remain federally illegal, he said, but a Department of Justice memo recently surfaced urging U.S. Attorneys to seek out and prosecute growers who are politically active. “I see this issue as fundamentally different,” he said, adding that the growers among the dozen-or-so people he represents are truly scared of outing themselves in a political setting. “This issue has created a class of people who are politically disenfranchised. They’re called names: douchebags, potstitutes, grow hoes and other derogatory things.” Fletcher said he’s glad the planning commission has removed its sign-in sheet. However, he said, that doesn’t undo damage already done. Fletcher said the county needs to declare its previous meetings null and void and hold them over again. However, he said his clients may be amenable to a compromise if the county were to hold a pair of well-publicized public meetings on the topic to gather additional input on the draft ordinance. No matter how the county opts to move forward, Francke said there’s another way for folks who work under the cloak of prohibition to participate in the process if they choose. They can always lie. “People are, of course, free to use any name,” he said. “They’re not under oath and there’s no legal compulsion to give their actual identity. So, if they’re nervous about their name being traced, they can always use a phony one.” l

Fleming has received the endorsement of police officers associations throughout the county, as well as those of individual officers. During debates, some candidates implied those endorsements might influence Fleming’s independence in the office and her ability to check and balance law enforcement. One candidate suggested that Fleming has shied away from criticizing the sheriff’s office’s policy allowing the release of jail inmates in the middle of the night because she’s been endorsed by Sheriff Mike Downey. (Downey is not listed as an endorser on Fleming’s website.) “I am a very independent person,” Fleming told the Journal. “I completely disagree with that notion.” Fleming said she’s proud of her endorsement by law enforcement, as officers spend more time in local courtrooms than the average citizen and she believes the endorsements reflect that officers have found her to be prepared, knowledgeable and devoted to every case she’s handled. Fleming added that she’s prosecuted officers in the past and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again if warranted. Klein identified his age — 71 — as the largest criticism of his candidacy. But, he said, his age should be an advantage as it’s reflective of his depth of experience. Klein pointed to Jerry Brown — California’s 76-year-old governor — as evidence that folks “a lot older” than him can be productive leaders: “If it’s not a 100-yard dash, age doesn’t make a difference.” ●

Ballots Are in the Mail

The Humboldt County Elections office sent out ballots on May 5 to the more than 34,000 county residents who will vote by mail this time around. Following national and state trends, nearly 46 percent of Humboldt’s registered voters are now signed up to exercise their civic duty by mail. Humboldt County’s participation has fallen since the November 2012 General Election, when more than 80,000 residents were registered to vote. As of early May, only 75,053 county residents are registered to cast ballots. Of those, 31,095 were registered as Democrats, 19,091 as Republicans and 18,337 as Decline to State. More than 2,800 residents registered as Greens, 2,441 with the American Independent Party, another 766 as Libertarians and 317 with the Peace and Freedom Party, according to numbers supplied by the Humboldt County Elections Office.

The Upstate RailConnect Committee will meet in Weaverville on May 7, but will do so without a highly anticipated presentation from Robert Martin. Martin, a Tehama County business man, sent waves of curiosity and excitement through rail circles last month when unexpectedly urged the committee to back away from its push to fund a public study looking at the feasibility of creating a rail line connecting Humboldt Bay to the Red Bluff area, telling the committee he had already secured private funding for such a study (“Train Coming?,”April 24). The committee asked Martin to come back and give a full presentation at its May 7 meeting, when it could be properly agendized. Martin agreed. But something appears to have come up, as Martin’s presentation was pulled from the agenda for the May 7 meeting after Martin contacted the committee and said he would not be attending, according to former Eureka City Manager David Tyson, who represents Humboldt County on the committee. Calls placed to Martin were not returned by deadline. —Thadeus Greenson l MEDIA

The sheriff’s office on May 6 announced several changes to its jail release policy, including a provision that will offer inmates the option to stay in custody until daylight. The sheriff’s office policy, which allows people arrested on drunk in public charges to leave the Humboldt County jail — day or night — once they’ve sobered up, was the subject of public criticism following the Jan. 1 death of St. Bernard Pastor Eric Freed. Following public meetings and the sheriff’s scrutiny of jail policies, Sheriff Mike Downey announced changes that he thinks will “assist with making the community safer, while still complying with the law and United States Constitution,” according to a press release. Those changes, which went into effect March 17, include: Correctional officers will conduct exit interviews that will help determine if inmates are under the influence or a danger to themselves or others. Officers will ask outgoing inmates if they would like to speak with a mental health professional or accept a free ride to the county’s mental health services. Cash confiscated during booking of people arrested for intoxication will be returned upon release. The sheriff’s office previously issued a check for a booked inmate’s cash. Officers will offer to call a friend, relative or taxicab (at the inmate’s expense) for anyone released from the jail between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. Inmates can choose to stay in custody until daylight. The sheriff’s office said three to five people a week have asked to stay in custody until dawn since the policy changes went into effect. —Grant Scott-Goforth

The Journal’s own Media Maven, Marcy Burstiner, recently took home the Redwood Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union’s 2014 Patriot Award for her support of free speech rights and open government. Burstiner, who chairs the Humboldt State University Journalism Department and is the faculty advisor to the university’s newspaper, The Lumberjack, is a founding board member of the Humboldt Center for Constitutional Rights. Greg Allen, who sits on the Redwood ACLU’s board, said Burstiner’s March 27 column, “The Big Chill,” equated 4/20 gatherings to political speech protected by the First Amendment. “Marcy was the first person to say it that way,” Allen said. “Christ, I’ve been heavily involved in the weed movement and the ACLU for years, and I’d never thought of it that way.” Burstiner said the award is a recognition that people care about free speech. “The award made me realize how many people there were in Humboldt County who also felt that our First Amendment Rights are really important and that it is really important that we work to exercise and protect them.” —Thadeus Greenson l

Colorado lawmakers are blazing new trails in marijuana banking, concerned that the lack of financial services for legal marijuana businesses puts the cash-only institutions in danger of robbery, while making it more difficult for the state to track sales. The federal government has eased up on the prohibition of bank services for the marijuana industry, but many are still wary of federal prosecution, leading Colorado Rep. Jonathan Singer to propose “cannabis credit co-ops,” according to Reuters. The Colorado House passed the bill despite reservations from some lawmakers — it wasn’t introduced until last week, and some say House committees weren’t given enough time to review the

A Bloomberg news story this week led with an anecdote about a Denver broker who offloaded a leaky, 40,000-square-foot warehouse in less than a day to a cashpaying client seeking farm space. “He’s also leased about 15 buildings since October for cannabis-related uses at more than double the market rate,” the report reads.

Meanwhile, a bill designed to punish marijuana DUIs in California died in a state assembly committee on April 29. The “Sober DUI Bill,” as the East Bay Express labeled it, would have defined “under the influence” as testing positive for 2 nanograms of THC. That range of intoxication is “not based on science,” according to the Express’ David Downs. “Federal traffic safety officials state that it’s hard to correlate THC levels to impairment.” Critics of the bill also said the level of THC in a driver’s bloodstream could linger for days after marijuana use — “well after deleterious effects have faded,” according to a press release from the California chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. l Oh, and just for a head-scratch or a chuckle, here’s some of this week’s context-free pot-related headlines, ranging from “no duh” to “uh, no”: Police: Teen brought marijuana on school bus Marijuana food truck debuts in Denver, could be headed for Washington Willow Smith Wears Socks with Marijuana Leaves on the Front USCG to Offload USD 1.9 Million Worth of Marijuana Marijuana to be sold for less than $1 a gram in Uruguay l • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, MAY 8, 2014


Supervisor hopefuls chart their road to a more prosperous future


umboldt’s 4th District is the county’s most compact in stature. Wrapping around much of Eureka, up to the Indianola Cutoff and across the bay to Samoa and Fairhaven, the district encompasses Humboldt County’s largest urban area, as well as the county seat. While the district shares similar challenges with the rest of the county, some of the issues and strengths of the county are particularly focused in the area. The 4th is home to Humboldt Bay’s largest ports and marinas, industrial and commercial zones for businesses as well as residential neighborhoods, homelessness, indoor marijuana grows and empty storefronts. The Journal recently sat down with the two supervisorial candidates vying to represent the 13,000 registered voters in that portion of the county: incumbent Virginia Bass, who was elected in 2010 and served on the Eureka City Council for eight years before that; and Chris Kerrigan, who himself served on the Eureka council for eight years before being termed out in 2008. Bass and Kerrigan spoke about several issues facing the county — and the 4th District in particular. Here’s an overview of the candidates’ plans.


There’s No Place Like Humboldt Fourth Coming By Grant Scott-Goforth

Boom or bust

Humboldt County’s economy — and what can be done to improve it — seems to be an eternal discussion. While the country continues to recover from the great recession, the board of supervisors recently approved a document outlining economic goals and target industries to promote. The most recent edition of the Humboldt County Economic Index lists a 7.2 percent unemployment rate, half a percent above the national rate. And the county’s median household income, according to 2012 census data, hung around $41,000, well below the state’s median of $61,000. Meanwhile, a walk through Old Town shows empty, unused storefronts. The 4th District offers many opportunities for economic growth: much of the bay, including waters conducive to aquaculture and recreation, the county’s largest shopping centers and industrial sites. So how can the county government improve our economy? Bass said it’s still going to be some time before Humboldt County’s employment numbers are back to 2008 levels. She said the economic strategy adopted by the board this year is a step forward, identifying high-growth industries that would lead to good paying jobs.


That’s all part of what she called a “new normal.” “Diversification is important because we can’t rely on one type of industry or another,” she said. The Samoa Peninsula, she said, is an “opportunity for this community to realize some of the best economic growth that we’ve seen in a long time.” She said the county needs to support the Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District in its cleanup of the Samoa Pulp Mill and focus on cleaning up other brownfields, as well as pre-permitting and pre-zoning lands to attract industries. She’s particularly excited about a local businessman’s desire to build a wood pellet manufacturing plant, utilizing what would otherwise be a waste product from the timber industry. It’s just the kind of business the county needs, she said. “They’re local. They care about our community. They’re not here to take advantage of us.” Finally, Bass said, the county should create a bay-wide land inventory, identifying properties that are zoned for general industrial use and ones that are zoned for coastal-dependent industrial use. Rather than expecting new businesses to research and seek out zoning changes appropriate for their industries, Bass said the county can come up with a long-range look at the peninsula, identify needs and work

with the California Coastal Commission to fulfill them. Kerrigan said a healthy economy will come from switching from a resource extraction economy to a resource management economy. “Growing up I think it was folklore that you had to balance the economy and the environment,” he said. That means encouraging businesses that make the most of our natural resources — specialty forest, fish and food products, for example — maximizing their value before selling them to markets outside of the county, rather than shipping raw products to be processed elsewhere. The county can encourage this by using the Headwaters Fund and the Redwood Region Economic Development Commission to invest in businesses and the infrastructure that startups rely on, he said. By pre-permitting land for business and keeping zoning and planning consistent, Kerrigan said, the county can attract investors to the area. Kerrigan said quality of life is crucial to a healthy economy — citing trails, pedestrian and bicycle safety, infill in neighborhoods and public safety as attractions for businesses who want happy employees, as well as two other key demographics: young families and retiring baby boomers. Another thing that appeals to investors and people seeking to move or stay here and that could improve Humboldt’s abil-

Additional air service. “As a younger person, I think it’s extremely important to me, as someone that’s chosen to live here, to have those options and that connectivity to the rest of the state and other markets. I think, in terms of attracting entrepreneurs, it’s going to be vital, as well.”

Finding a home

Mental health, drug abuse and the economy are among the most visible contributors to the county’s homeless problem. The Department of Health and Human Services provides some relief for the down and out, as do private organizations that offer shelter and some treatment programs. While reliable statistics are difficult to come by given the reclusive nature of the county’s homeless population, the Humboldt Housing and Homeless Coalition’s 2013 Point in Time Count found 1,579 people living without a home on the night of Jan. 28, 2013. Of those, more than 600 reported staying in Eureka. Can the county do more to help these people off the streets? Bass said she started a community group — consisting of elected officials, Eureka Police Chief Andy Mills, business owners, service workers and others — to address Eureka’s homeless issues last year. It began as a venting process but she and others have learned a lot about homelessness. “How do we start making little visible changes?” she asked. “Every effort I’ve seen in regard to making things better … seems to try to solve the problem. And it’s not going to be something we solve. What we can do is mitigate and make improvements.” She said learning about the community’s homeless — a tactic touted by Mills — is the first step. She said assisting people in connecting with families and employment is crucial, as well as education of the community at large. “You’ve got what we started to call vagrants, the folks that are the visible ones in the community who may not even be homeless,” she said. “We are a very giving, tolerant community. … Perhaps the best thing we can do is instead of handing someone money, give them other avenues to get the appropriate help.” The county should also focus on affordable housing, Bass said, not just for young couples and families, but singleoccupancy residencies for low-income individuals. That means preserving mobile home parks and converting hotels to single-unit rooms — “Opportunities for people who don’t need a very big living space, but they will benefit with having a roof over their head and being able to take care of their needs.” Kerrigan got choked up as he repeated

an anecdote from a Eureka school teacher who told him that one quarter of her students lived out of cars. Pointing out of his campaign office window, he said many homeless — particularly families — stay out of sight. “Families come into city parking lots, for example, at dusk and then leave early in the morning at dawn. And their kids do their homework in the back of their cars. And they’re some of the nicest, hardest working families you could meet.” Kerrigan said the county needs to focus on services to provide connections with families, transitional housing and medical care, focusing on people who want to get out of a homeless situation. “Then it becomes a lot easier for public safety to enforce community behavioral standards and ordinances, rather than our police department feeling overwhelmed by the amount of homelessness.” Raising the minimum wage — something Kerrigan said he’s supported for Eureka — would incentivize work. And he said he’s spoken with Mills about looking into designated camping areas for the homeless.

How ’bout that General Plan?

Humboldt County’s General Plan Update has been in the works for 14 years, and while the board of supervisors is scheduled to finish its review this year, some say it should have been finished years ago. The board’s decision to return a 2012 draft general plan to the planning commission last year raised controversy, as have some of that group’s proposed changes. None of the county’s political factions are going to completely agree on a document that’s going to guide how the county grows and develops for the next 20 years — but what can (and should) the board do to finish the GPU? Bass said everyone is ready to see the GPU completed. “I appreciate all the passion that’s in this community,” she said. “That’s something that makes us very special. But it also makes certain projects difficult. It’s not as easy as it looks.” If the board could focus singularly on the GPU, the supervisors could probably finish it sooner, Bass said, but that’s not realistic. “Yes, the general plan is very important; it is but one of our chores to deal with. … But there’s continually policy being made, and neighborhoods that need help.” Kerrigan’s frustrated with the current board’s review of the general plan. “[The supervisors] need to insert back the goal of the countywide trail system,” he said. “They need to insert back the incentives to develop within the cities and where we have infrastructure, which will continued on page 17 • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, MAY 8, 2014

tax for excessive electricity users. He also said the state needs to take leadership in developing regulations around legalization. He said environmental problems associated with outdoor marijuana growing — water diversion, low flows and chemicals — are going to be made worse by land policies that the current board of supervisors is pursuing: a loosening of rules that will allow more subdivision and development on rural land. “And that’s where a lion’s share of [marijuana growing] activity is taking place, is in areas that have been subdivided.”

Humboldt County’s most famous conundrum is in a period of flux.

Wide World of the 5th By Heidi Walters Editors note: The Journal attempted to sit down with both candidates for the position of 5th District supervisor for this story. However, incumbent Ryan Sundberg did not respond to at least eight phone calls, three text messages and a pair of emails left for him over the better part of two weeks. We have attempted to include his take on the issues, however, using his campaign materials, a column he submitted to the Times-Standard and his comments at candidate forums.


t 1,552 square miles, the 5th District accounts for nearly 45 percent of Humboldt County’s landmass. It harbors the world’s tallest tree, California’s most scenic coastal rocks, four rivers, numerous creeks, timber, dairies, farms and worldfamous public lands, including movie-star Fern Canyon in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park (Jurassic Park, anyone?). The district rises from the ocean, sweeps through cool dark redwoods and up, inland, into the river-crossed, sun-baked Doug-fir, dogwood, oak and madrone of Bigfoot country. Amid all this glory live 26,892 people — about a fifth of the county’s population. Around 300 of them live in the city of Trinidad. But the rest live in a dozenplus unincorporated towns and neighborhoods — the biggest, McKinleyville, is home to more than half the district’s residents (15,177) — or on the lands of five tribal entities. These communities are scattered from the Del Norte County

border to the Mad River, and from the coast to the borders with Trinity and Siskiyou counties. And while they share certain wants and worries, each have their own particular needs. Some residents live in shacks, others in million-dollar-plus grandiosities, with most in something modest in-between. Some of the district’s schools are top performers, while others are barely hanging in there. The district’s 15,103 registered voters’ political proclivities cover the map, although 44 percent are Democrat. Twenty-four percent are Republican and there’s a smattering of other affiliations, but — notably — 23 percent declare “no party preference” (nobody tells them what to think). That’s a lot of differently-minded people in farflung places for a supervisor to please. This election, two candidates are vying for that honor (which comes with an $81,585 annual paycheck): incumbent Ryan Sundberg, of McKinleyville, who was elected to the board in 2010, and challenger Sharon Latour, also of McKinleyville. The Journal set out to interview both, focusing on a few key issues — in particular, balancing the diverse interests within the 5th, and marijuana regulation and planning. Only Latour deigned to participate, so Sundberg’s takes on the issues below have been cobbled together from his campaign materials, comments at debates and a piece he wrote for the Times-Standard.

Balancing Act

In national and state park-embraced Orick, population 300-minus and down-


counting, they’re worried about having enough pupils to keep their school open (it almost closed this year); about turning their malingering burl economy into something more robust — say, at least as big and impressive as that tallest tree in the world, Hyperion the redwood, not far from town; and how to curb crime. “We are so economically depressed,” says Orick Chamber of Commerce’s Donna Hufford, “we have people living on the edges, without job opportunities, finding other, illegal ways to make a living.” There’s also the county-managed levee, on Redwood Creek, still in need of stabilizing so it can withstand the next big flood. McKinleyville’s residents also fret over crime. Economic development occupies many minds, as well as what a makeover of Central Avenue should look like. Development often outpaces discussions, and the McKinleyville Community Services District has even sued the county over an infill-style rezoning plan calling for more multi-family development in parts of town. “Our infrastructure is not adequate to handle growth in certain areas without being updated,” says Dennis Mayo, a director on the McKinleyville Community Services District board. Who, he asks, will pay for that? In Willow Creek, the community services district is desperate to find $7 million to $10 million to build a downtown wastewater sewer system so it can grow, period. Businesses are on septic, now,


and there isn’t much room for more. A wastewater system would permit new construction, says Willow Creek Community Services District Board President Bruce Nelson. “We don’t want to grow a lot,” Nelson clarifies — just enough, he adds, to provide more, legal work opportunities for young people. Yes, Willow Creekians have their pot-related issues, as well (more on that later). And crime, of course, is a persistent worry. In the Hoopa Valley, a revised memorandum of understanding between the county sheriff and Hoopa Valley Tribe dominates the current conversation. Due to budget constraints, the sheriff has eliminated the area’s substation, there are no longer night patrols, and call response is left up to deputized tribal police — who don’t always respond, according to Two Rivers Tribune Editor-in-Chief Allie Hostler. “When you ask the general citizen if they feel safe, they say they feel an increased sense of danger and crime,” Hostler says. The tribe has also struggled to maintain its ambulance service, which serves the whole area including a good stretch of busy State Route 299. The county has helped finance it for another year, but its fate will be in question again after that. There is also the ever-present need to protect the area’s Trinity River water allocation, and to manage impacts from large-scale trespass pot grows in the woods.

to Klamath River talks,” she says. She’ll have office hours in each community throughout the month. She’s big on listening, she says, and conversation. Sundberg, in public fora, has said his lifelong — and his family’s generationslong — connection to the area makes him better qualified than his challenger, as does his 14 years on the Trinidad Rancheria Tribal Council. In an April 13 “My Word” column in the Times-Standard, Sundberg said the concerns of the smaller communities in the 5th “must be represented along with the needs of McKinleyville, our largest population center.” He noted the broad spectrum of endorsements he’s garnered, “from liberal to conservative.” “I educate myself by talking to people that represent various sides of an issue in order to make the most informed decisions possible for the whole county,” he wrote. In his three-and-a-half years in office, he has had a hand in supporting a number of projects benefiting the 5th, including the formation of the McKinleyville Municipal Advisory Committee, a liaison group between residents and the county, and finding money to help the

Deeper into the 5th — in Weitchpec, Pecwan, and Orleans — concerns arise about fire safety, as well as fisheries health in the Klamath River and the controversial basin-wide Klamath River management plan-in-waiting. That’s just a glimpse into the sprawling 5th. So how does one supervisor wrangle it all, while also keeping in mind the best interests of the county as a whole? Latour, who in public debates and interviews has said the key difference between her and Sundberg is her 20 years more of life experience, says she has moved away from the “checklist mentality” of her younger years and now endeavors to slow down, do her homework and then engage in conversation. She admits she has much to learn about the 5th, but declares that “our diversity is our strength.” Indeed, she waxes a bit wonder-eyed talking about it. Calling Humboldt, in general, “a fairytale place” that needs caring for else we’ll lose it, she says, “We’ve inherited a cultural respect for the land, of living with the environment, from peoples that lived here for thousands of years before the Caucasian population showed up. “So to be able to slow down and appreciate how the tribes see the water, the trees, the ocean … is so instructive to us,” she says. Getting to the nuts and bolts, Latour lays out her plan of action if she is elected supervisor. “I plan to use part of my salary for an administrative assistant,” she says. The assistant will answer her calls in the daytime, freeing her up to “go out and advertise Humboldt Made, to go to Sacramento, to go up • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, MAY 8, 2014

h, can you feel it? Summer is in the air, with the birds tweeting, plants bursting into bloom and that inexorable itch to get out in the garden and plant something — anything! The intersection of fine weather and a little less rain has me dusting off my hori-hori in anticipation of planting all those zucchini seedlings I started indoors last month. (I’m enjoying this bliss while it lasts, since in a few months the glut of zucchini will be exciting to no one.) What to do in the garden this month? Read on. Plant tomatoes, squash and other heat-loving vegetables. It’s finally time! If you’ve been waiting patiently to be able to set out starts of warm season vegetables like tomatoes, corn, zucchini and pumpkins, you can go for it. While old-timers can cite the years when a few late frosts killed everything, we are to the point in the season where it is a very good bet that anything planted will survive. If you live inland where it’s still chilly, or if you want to give starts an extra boost, plant them with a wall-o-water or another mini greenhouse-type setup to keep them extra toasty while they get settled. Harvest rhubarb. The cherry red stems of rhubarb are ready to be harvested, and thank goodness. All of those strawberry rhubarb crumble recipes I’ve squirreled away from Pinterest can finally be put to good use. To harvest the stalks, just grasp each individual stem at the base of the plant, and pull downward with a gentle twisting motion to break the stalk cleanly away from the crown. While you’ll want to cut off most of the huge, inedible leafy

portion, I’ve read that rhubarb stems stay fresh longer in the fridge if you leave about 2 to 3 inches of the leaf at the end of the stalk. Pick up clematis vines now for the best selection. Potted clematis vines are arriving in the nursery, and now’s the time to buy if you want your pick of the litter. Since everybody knows the only reason you plant a hybrid clematis is for the flower, you might feel some trepidation purchasing plants that aren’t yet in bloom. But not to worry, growers aren’t stupid — pretty much any clematis will have a big, bodacious, lifesize tag showing off what the flower will look like. These petite vines are happiest when their roots are in the shade and their shoots are in the sunshine, so plant them behind a dwarf shrub and let them scramble up an obelisk for an attractive vertical accent. Try this surprising Humboldt County annual. I tend towards a spirit of benign neglect in my home garden, weeding, watering and pruning only when I think of it and when I’m not too busy caring for everyone else’s plants. Given that, annuals are usually a bust for me, because by the time it occurs to me to deadhead and fuss with them, they’ve already gone to seed and become ragged. Not so with the Seniorita Blanca spider flower (Cleome hybrid). While spider flowers are a heatloving plant that I usually think of as performing best in the southern states, I planted six of these annuals in 4-inch pots last year and was shocked that they grew from nothing to 4 feet tall and bloomed constantly throughout the season with no attention from me beyond walking by and admiring them every day on the way to the chicken coop. Why do they add a Humboldt County touch to the garden? Well, one look at the foliage and you’ll see a strong resemblance to another plant favored by locals. Snap off single shoots from rhododendrons. Gangly, leggy rhododendrons can be seen all around Eureka, and while some of that adolescent-looking awkwardness comes from choosing a poor variety, you can prevent your rhododendron from this dire fate by pinching the single

growth shoots this time of year. After blooming, rhododendrons set out three or more shoots from just beneath the old flower head. This is ideal, since the more branches you have, the more foliage will cover your plant. However, some branch tips will only set out a single growth shoot, and these should be pinched or snapped off now to encourage a full habit with more flowers. Prepare a water source for birds. In Humboldt County, birds don’t have trouble finding water throughout most of the year, but you can help them along during our short dry season by providing a consistent, easy-to-drink water source. Whether that’s a birdbath, small fountain or pond, just make sure there is a grippy landing spot for them to perch, and that the water isn’t so deep as to be dangerous for them. If your existing fountain or pond is made of a slippery material like glazed ceramic, or has steep edges unsuitable for a casual drink or bath, consider adding gravel, cobble or other textured stones to create a beach for birds to stand on and splash. Attend a garden tour. I’ve heard of two exciting local garden tours coming up this month. First, if you’re up for a visit to Mendocino this weekend, the Garden Conservancy is having its Open Days program, featuring three expansive, beautifully designed private gardens which will be open to the public on May 10 (details on their website). Closer to home, legendary local gardener Pat Wells is opening her garden for a tour on May 25 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. as a benefit for the Trinidad Museum native plant garden.

Murphy’s Salutes Mosgo’s

“I really don’t think I could do this anywhere else,” says Angie Brundage. “I think this community made it possible to me to do this at my age… and make the leap into buying my own business.” Most people in her position – age 23 and graduating from Humboldt State University in May – are planning not a lot beyond summer travels and applying for entry level jobs in their profession of choice. Brundage leap frogged all that a bit. In November, she became the business owner of Mosgo’s Coffee House, taking over from Peter and Gale who first opened the neighborhood café in 2006. The Mosgofians brought vitality to Arcata’s Westwood Shopping Center, neighboring the Westwood Murphy’s Market. Overnight, both longterm residents and students had a place to meet, study and enjoy Mosgo’s all-ages art and musical offerings. It was a passion for the couple. But it wasn’t any secret that the couple was looking for a life change… and Brundage was prepared to make one herself at just the right time. “I really appreciate

them giving me this opportunity,”she says. She spent months working with the Mosgofians and doing her own research – bringing her collegiate study skills to the process. She dug deep into the cafés books and queried established business owners for advice. A huge lift came from her experience working for Kris and Rick Roberts, owners of the Jitter Bean Coffee Company. “That’s where I really learned coffee,” the McKinleyville High grad says of her six years there. And landlord and Murphy’s owner Pat Murphy has been there to offer a helping hand. “He’s great. He comes in to buy coffee all the time. I can’t count how many people have said: I’m a phone call away,” she adds. So Brundage has gone into business ownership with eyes wide open. But that hasn’t meant that she has not had plenty of work. She’s there behind the counter every day. And then there’s the matter of her own books. Brundage is completing her HSU Psychology degree and somehow has been able to balance both responsibilities. She’s become a master at time management and hard work.

“Obviously you can,” Brundage says about being able to run her own business outside of Humboldt. “But this community is going to make it enjoyable.” And she’s enjoyed family support. A renovation of the space was made possible with a big hand from her dad who built much of the new furniture and countertops. Building is a family tradition – the Brundage family going four generations back in Humboldt as owners of Three Point Logging and continuing on as building contractors. There have been changes to the atmosphere, and Mosgo’s is expanding its menu to include more sandwiches and fresh fruit smoothies. She knows what to keep, too. Mosgo’s Equator fair trade/organic coffee tradition has stayed on. The new Mosgo’s has also built upon its music nights, with Buddy Reed a regular. Brudage’s plan involves growth while keeping customers happy with their favorite items. “I seem to have support everywhere. I’m really looking forward to growing with this community.”

Pucker Up

When life jacks up the price of limes, make lemon pie By Jennifer Fumiko Cahill


ust as the weather turns warm and citrus cocktails and desserts beckon, a triumvirate of forces — bad weather, crop disease and drug cartels — have created a lime shortage and skyrocketing prices. Bartenders, chefs and home cooks alike stand in the aisles, green fruit in hand, wondering if the old lemon can do the job. Instead of substituting, let’s give the humble lemon some time in the limelight for its own magical flavor and texture. Ohio or Shaker Lemon Pie goes a step further than the average smooth and fluffy meringue pie, since it uses paperthin slices of the fruit macerated in sugar, no gummy thickeners required. Not just the juice, but the skin, pith and meat are all in there. If you love the slivers of orange peel in marmalade, bitters in your cocktails and the tartness of lemonade, this is your jam. Speaking of the unglamorous and overlooked, this version is adapted from the mid-’90s Joy of Cooking (once a star in everyone’s kitchen, now relegated to the role of Pretty Girl’s Best Friend in the age of the celebrity chef). The pie has a double crust — if you have a handle on homemade, you will never go back, but if you go with pre-made, nobody here will cast the first lemon. There is time to roll out and chill a crust, if you’re up for it, since the lemons and sugar have to rest overnight. As for the fruit itself, you want lemons that are meaty with thin skins — too much of the white pith will make the filling bitter. If you’re worried, trim away the pith with a knife and toss in

an extra 1/4 cup of sugar. Try it as-is first, then experiment with Meyer lemons or an added teaspoon of grated fresh ginger if you want to get all fancy.

Ohio Lemon Pie

Ingredients and method: Two prepared and chilled pie crusts 2 large lemons 1 3/4 to 2 cups sugar 1 teaspoon salt 4 eggs, beaten Zest the lemons, then halve them lengthwise. Lay the halves flat on a cutting board and slice them as thin as you can with your sharpest knife. Toss the seeds, then move the slices, zest and juice from the board into a glass or stainless steel bowl with the sugar and salt. Stir the mixture well, then cover it and leave it out on the counter overnight or up to 24 hours. You can go as short as 2 hours, but the lemon slices won’t get as tender. Once you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 425 F and lay the bottom crust in a 9-inch pan. Beat 4 whole eggs well. Stir the lemon mixture well, add the beaten eggs and stir well again. Pour it all into the pie crust and lay the second crust on top, pinching the edges and poking vents into the top. Bake the pie at 425 F for 10 minutes, then lower the oven to 325 F. Bake for another 45 minutes until golden. You may want to put foil on the edges to keep them from burning. Cool the pie completely before you serve it so the filling can really set. Now take a bow, little lemon. l • North Coast Journal • Thursday, May 8, 2014

brings songs of heartbreak, malaise and tsunamis to Redwood Curtain Brewing Company starting at 8 p.m., no cover. All throughout A-town, in fact, bands will entice you to throw dollars into guitar cases in various Arts! Arcata locales.

Saturday’s dark charm

The Alibi remains one of my favorite places to experience a show. Sure, it’s not an ideal design for either sound or vision, but there’s something so pure about seeing shows there — sharing love for rock music in dark corners, maybe, or the ability to get up close and personal with the band as the sound envelops you. This Saturday night, Duane Mark & the Get Down Bandits will fill the ’bi with Mark’s whiskey-drenched voice, the Bandits’ driving drum, bass, electric guitar and banjo, and all the other elements that make outlaw country music resonate with one’s inner renegade. In his bio, Mark writes, “I could tell you all kinds of crap about how good I am, but that just seems lame to me. Truth is, I absolutely love music, which drives me to work very hard at making great songs and putting on a fun live show! Take a listen... decide for yourself. If you really like it, tell a friend for me!” Consider yourself told, friend. Music starts around 11 p.m., cover is $5, the show is 21-and-over and Humboldt’s own cowpunks The Hill open.

Saturday’s less dark, still charming

You know how movies seem to come in twos or threes? Like when Deep Impact and Armageddon came out at the same time? And those magician flicks, the one with Ed Norton and the one with Christian Bale? Well, for some reason, the universe has done the same with music, bringing forth not only the aforementioned country show, but a honky-tonkbluegrass melding at the Jambalaya. Yes, the much beloved (and rightly so) Rooster McClintock joins forces with The No Good Redwood Ramblers for a night of fun the likes of which is rarely seen. Fortunately, proximity allows you to hop back and forth. Cover is $5, show starts 9 p.m.-ish and you must be 21-or-over.

Saturday’s bold and brassy

The idea of dropping $20 to see a marching band indoors might confuse the uninitiated for a moment but, trust us, the March Fourth Marching Band is not your average group of synchronized traipsing musicians. Wearing redesigned

marching-band-themed costumes, March Fourth bring electric bass, a five-piece percussion corps and a six-part brass section to the musical side of things, then adds stilt-walkers, dancers, acrobatics and an exceedingly diverse repertoire to the mix. The magic happens at Humboldt Brews and begins at 9:30 p.m. Please be 21-or-over.

Saturday also wants you funky

And now for something completely different… Jambalaya owner Pete Ciotti, DJ Rickshaw and B. Swizlo are the crux of The Getdown, who joins The Headhunters at the Arcata Theatre Lounge. From the instant funk classic “Chameleon” to the rare-groove sound of “God Make Me Funky,” the Headhunters have redefined modern funk, world music and jazz, making them one of the most innovative groups in history. Doors at 9 p.m., cost is $22, $18 advance and the gig is 21-andover.

Saturday, take children, send children

Take the kids to see DJ Zephyr and vintage queens The Lost Luvs at the Arcata Playhouse at 6:30 p.m. The $5 adults/$3 kids 12-and-up cover goes to help the Coastal Grove fifth grade class pay for a trip to Mount Lassen in the fall. Beer, wine and treats, too! Kids under 12 are free.

Monday’s charitable moment

The do-unto-others vibe continues with Hip-Hop For Hope, an event hosted by the Children’s Cancer Foundation and The Ink People at the Jambalaya to benefit local families dealing with childhood cancer. Performers include Jeff Turner of TeamBackPack, Hiway, Doe the Unknown Rapper and more. Cover is $8, show starts at 7 p.m. and even though it’s for the kiddos, the party is 21-and-over.

Ridin’ Arty Where do all those grown men and women in bizarre costumes rattling along atop nutty kinetic sculptures come from? Little people in bizarre costumes rattling along atop nutty kinetic sculptures, of course. See how they get started at the Kinetic Classic Kid Powered Art Race on Sunday, May 11 at 1 p.m. in the Sacco Amphitheater. The Rutabagas invite kids in utero to age 12 to make a costumed run for it on bikes, boards and buggies for the price of a food or toy donation. Remember your helmet and pads! Too little to build a ride? No sweat. The festivities begin at noon with the Rutababy Buggy Bouncer’s parade, for which all you need is a theme, a costume and some human power. Toddlers in strollers, little ones on foot and babies in bellies register at 11:30 a.m. to join in and compete for best costume, best stroller and “bounciest.” Kids from kindergarten to third grade can form a team with a supervising adult for the Rutabaga Rally. Come up with a theme, dress up in costume, decorate some kid-powered wheels and prepare to croon a team song. There’ll be prizes and eternal fame for best wheels, most wheels, speed, song and costumes. Builders from fourth through sixth grade can roll up for the Push Kart Kinetic Dash. That means putting together an artsy set of wheels with steering and brakes for the driver to work while teammates push from behind. Don’t forget a lucky charm, and again, helmets and pads. You’re going to need that brain to build a kinetic race vehicle when you grow up. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

When You’re Good to Mama How did last Mother’s Day go? How long did it take the hazmat crew to clean up the kitchen after the kids made breakfast? Did you ever get that pancake batter out of the stove vent? Or was the morning spent in a packed restaurant where Mom had to keep shushing the fidgeting kids? You could make things easy on everybody this year at the Mother’s Day Brunch at the Bayside Grange on Sunday, May 11 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. ($15 adults, $5 kids under 12). The whole gang can chow down on brunchy goodness (vegetarian dishes, too) and pastries without leveling your kitchen. The bluegrassy Kindred Spirits, the bluesy Anna Hamilton and the (one assumes rage-y) Raging Grannies will be playing, which is both entertaining and perfect for drowning out your little angels. Forgot a gift? Bid on something pretty from the silent auction (that is called a spontaneous gesture, not procrastination), which, along with the meal, benefits the Emma Center and its work helping women recover from trauma. Mom is guaranteed to be down with that. Clean your plates and head north to the Westhaven Center for the Arts for the Spring Fling from 1 to 4 p.m. (free, no dogs). Aid your digestion dancing to the Compost Mountain Boys and Tim Breed. Keep moving until you’ve got some room for the barbecue that will be smoking up the place. All that dancing and the kids’ activities should wear the little ones out for the ride home — it might even get you an early bedtime. That’s like a Mother’s Day miracle. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. Disney bought the movie rights to Marvel in 2009 for $4 billion, and it’s been laughing from atop its pile of profits ever since. Let Mickey gloat; he deserves it. The reboots have yet to disappoint, putting all previous attempts to shame with better writing, directing, casting and marketing. The studio has handled crossovers with finesse and left Warner Bros. whimpering and clutching Batman as its only hope. Well played, Disney. Well played. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is proof that Disney is not losing momentum, despite what the laws of physics might dictate. Marc Webb should make himself comfortable in his director’s chair because he’s likely not going anywhere else anytime soon. His Spider-Man doesn’t just win in comparison to the Sam Raimi series; it holds its own as a thoroughly entertaining and well-executed addition to the superhero canon. If it were 25 minutes shorter, I’d be tempted to put the phrase “perfection” on the table. Even with the long runtime and the consumption of a large, cherry ICEE, the action spectacle won out over bladder limitations. It starts with a flashback, shedding more light on the original’s exposition and fueling the new plot. It’s a sad reminder of Spidey’s origin story, but it’s also a convenient bit of foreshadowing and insight into Peter Parker’s current struggle: recon-

ciling abandonment by his parents while also trying not to abandon the people he loves. You can’t have a tragic hero with the tragic, after all. This serious edge appears sporadically throughout the film, but the writers balance it with campiness and Spidey acrobatics whenever they get a chance. Spidey faces a myriad of villains in this sequel, each requiring his own backstory. Hence the film’s 2-hour-plus runtime. Jamie Foxx’s Max Dillon is a hot mess of angry nerd turned villain. Max’s rebirth as Electro is clearly the best result of highcontinued on next page May 9 May 18

powered electrocution anyone could ever ask for. Sure he died without dignity, in a tank full of electric eels, but now he’s a Teslian Midas: Everything he touches turns to sparks. Not only can he harness electricity, but he can also levitate and travel through the electric grid. He’s like Wes Craven’s Shocker, sans late ‘80s special effects. He’s angry, misunderstood and an electric superconductor, so he’s a perfect villain. And after hearing the words, “I’m Dr. Kafka; I’m here to help you,” can you really blame him for rebelling? Cue electrical experiments montage. Zap! Sizzle! Pow! There is, of course, the dark and scorned rich boy, Harry Osborn, aka the Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan), who’s going to die from the same disease that killed his father unless he can cure himself with Spider-Man’s blood. Then, there’s Paul Giamatti’s Aleksei Sytsevich, aka the Rhino. His backstory is nearly nonexistent, and if you don’t look closely you might not even realize that it’s Giamatti. His main purpose seems to be adding action to the intro and outro; obviously, he pulls this off perfectly. The great thing about the Spider-Man comics is that the hero and his villains all rise from the ashes of their scientific nerdery. In a battle between Science vs. Evil Science, science wins either way. Tobey Maguire’s nerdiness overwhelmed his smart-assery and the result was something more pathetic than heroic. Andrew Garfield pulls off Parker’s nerdy sassiness, wearing it on his web-slinging sleeve, mocking minor bad-guys throughout the film. His eyes are less puppy-dogged than Maguire’s, but his romantic conundrum with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) is so much more watchable than Maguire’s awkward relationship with Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst). This could be because Garfield and Stone are both so damned attractive, but it’s more likely that Parker and Stacy have a more alluring backstory. Parker feels responsible for the death of Stacy’s father and his guilt overwhelms his love. With comic book movies, the love story has to be wrought with grief, drama and forbidden longing. Check, check and doublecheck. The action, acting and direction are all fortified with great cinematography. The freeze-frame shots of action sequences bring the film back to its comic roots, at least visually. It’s not over-used and it breaks the tension created by the constant explosions and flying debris. The fights with Electro are particularly good — after all the movies from the franchise, they’re something refreshingly new. PG13. 143m.



FADING GIGOLO. John Turturro’s romantic comedy in which women who look like Sofia Vergara and Sharon Stone pay to sleep with a man who looks like John Turturro and ask Woody Allen for sex advice.

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. 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. 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. THE OTHER WOMAN. Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton are women done wrong by a clichéd plot and a thrown-together script. PG13. 109m. 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. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

Directions may be obtained pursuant to a written request submitted to the beneficiary: RAY RAPHAEL, Trustee; MARIE JEANNE RAPHAEL, Trustee; WENDY ANNE FETZER; CAROL VILLAIRE, c/o Selzer Home Loans, 551 S. Orchard Avenue, Ukiah, CA 95482, telephone: (707) 462-4000 or by contacting the Trustee, Prime Pacific at (707) 468-5300 or mailing request to Prime Pacific, P.O. Box 177, Ukiah, CA 95482 - within 10 days from the first publication of this notice. If a street address or common designation of property is shown in this notice, no warranty is given as to its completeness or correctness. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The total amount of the unpaid obligation, together with reasonable estimate of the costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this notice is $260,961.34. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. The sale will be made without covenant or warranty of title, possession, or encumbrances to satisfy the obligation secured by and pursuant to the power of the sale conferred in that certain Deed of Trust, all advances thereunder, interest provided therein, and fees, charges and expenses of the trustee. The Deed of Trust was executed by PETER JAMES PROFANT and ALEXANDRA PROFANT, Trustees of The Profant Family Trust dated August 10, 2000, as the original Trustor, to RICHARD P. SELZER, as Trustee, for the benefit and security of RAY RAPHAEL and MARIE JEANNE RAPHAEL, Trustees of the Ray and Marie Jeanne Raphael 2006 Living Trust dated August 10, 2006, as to an undivided 33.5% interest; NEIL SYLVAN RAPHAEL, a single man and KELLI HARDCASTLE, a single woman, as joint tenants as to an undivided 33.5% interest; CAROL K.

Orchard Avenue, Ukiah, CA 95482, telephone: (707) 462-4000. 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. Dated: April 17, 2014 PRIME PACIFIC, a California corporation - Trustee /s/MARY F. MORRIS, President No. S-14-01F 5/1, 5/8, 5/15/2014 (14-127) • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, MAY 8, 2014

K, quick (and ancient) puzzle to get us going, so please cover up the next paragraph before you answer. Alice and Bob take turns throwing seven dice. Alice will win as soon as every die lands the same; Bob will win the first time every die lands differently. Who wins? Alice, right? Since only six numbers are available, Bob will never get his seven different numbers. Unless you’re a statistician, who would say, “Given an infinite number of rolls, Alice will eventually win. But since she’s limited to a finite number of rolls in this life, she may never get her winning combo. So either Alice wins or it’s a draw.” Such is the nitpicky stuff of statistics that so peeved British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli that he exclaimed (according to Mark Twain), “There are three types of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics.” Disraeli might have appreciated the following tale which (spoiler!) pits a strict statistical interpretation versus common sense. Some years ago, Newsweek reported on this SAT question: “How many buses does it take to transport 1,128 soldiers if each bus holds 36 of them?” Only 70 percent of high school students realized that the solution involved dividing 1,128 by 36 (yielding 31 1/3). It got worse. Most of the 70 percent gave that fractional figure as their answer, as if a “one-third-bus” was an everyday sight in their town. The correct answer is, of course, 32 buses, one of which isn’t full. A third example from the world of statistics might help if you’re into to wasting your hard-earned money on lottery tickets. Let’s compare the lottery with casino gambling, in which the house advantage is anything from 1 percent (as in blackjack,

if you follow a basic strategy) to 5.36 percent (as in roulette). Put another way, on average, your $100 bet returns $99 or $94.64, respectively. The equivalent “edge” in lotteries is around 50 percent. That is to say, your $100 returns an average of $50. (By the way, the odds of winning the Mega Millions biweekly jackpot is about 1 in 260 million, which also happens to be your annual risk of getting killed by a falling coconut.) So if you can’t resist that gambling urge, head to Blue Lake, Loleta or Trinidad. Finally, statistics can give us a more realistic way of looking at life expectancy than we’re used to. Long ago, folks used to die much younger than they do now, right? Well, sort of. “Average life expectancy” depends critically on when you start counting. During the late Stone Age (50,000 to 10,000 years ago), life expectancy at birth was about 33 years. However, infant mortality and childhood diseases were rife back then, so if you survived to age 15, you could expect to die at around 55, which isn’t too different from the present global average of 66. There’s so much more to the slipperiness of statistics: interest rates, misleading advertising, elections, living with risk, the stock market. Check the online version of this story for some resources available at the Humboldt County Library. You’ll be less easily fooled, and you might save yourself a boatload of money. l Barry Evans ( will tell you all you need know about the stock market for the price of a latte. Or you could save your two bucks and buy index funds. Barry’s photographs from his recent travels in Asia are currently on display at Old Town Coffee & Chocolates.
