Creative Cover! Editor: We were excited to see graphic artist Lynn Jones’ creative reuse of materials for the North Coast Journal’s “Summer of Fun” (May 9) issue! Our mission at SCRAP Humboldt, the county’s first nonprofit creative reuse center, is to inspire creative reuse and environmentally sustainable behavior by providing educational programs and affordable materials to the community. In our new space on 101 H St. Suite D in Arcata we accept a variety of materials for donation, offer workshops and showcase artists who create products out of at least 75 percent reused materials. April was our first month open, and we diverted approximately 4,000 pounds of materials from the waste stream. Transforming how we view materials and waste is important to sustainability and to our community. Thank you for showcasing creative reuse on your cover! Tibora Girczyc-Blum, Arcata

railroad costs are far out of reach, on the order of tens to hundreds of millions of dollars. Where would this money possibly come from?! For the last 30 or more years, including boom times with budget surpluses, we never had the votes and political clout to raise a fraction of the money, along with commitments to subsidize operating losses. California’s budget is precariously balanced, and sequesters and tea party budgets are strangling federal money. Promoters excited about port/railroad synergy should read Journal interviews of nearby port managers about port economics, and listen to the NPR radio program about negative impacts of the Panama Canal’s expansion on West Coast ports. Proponents argue: How do you know if we don’t study it? This logic also justifies paying for a feasibility study of building a land bridge from here to Hawaii; I’d love to drive my car on a bridge to Hawaii, but a map and common sense about costs, with no “study” needed, tells me my tax dollars shouldn’t pay for a bridge feasibility study. Like a Hawaii bridge proposal, simple, realistic cost estimates, without a study, show a railroad is financially far out of reach.   Railroad promoters are smart, their intentions are good, but there is no justification to spend money to study a north/ south, east/west, or port/railroad project. We will never, ever have the money needed. And fortunately we have other economic development options for our port and our area that are worth studying and which will help us now, if our community and government leaders will just pursue them. Jeff Knapp, Arcata

Don’t End With Fear Editor: Thank you, North Coast Journal. With the publication of “Choosing Death” (April 25) you have done the community a great service. Fear of death is one of the major compulsions underpinning religions and other superstitions which try to ameliorate fear by providing exculpatory alternatives. On the other hand, Josephine Johnson’s exemplary article does that for the growing multitude of pragmatic people who accept the inevitability of death and wish to deal with it on their own terms. There is nothing uplifting or compensatory about enduring pain or the slow deterioration accompanying many infirming conditions. What is truly heroic is accepting the inevitable and dealing with death in the same manner as we deal with life. At our best, we gather the facts, make an informed decision, and carry out the required effort. The story of Reg and Betty Dawson is an inspiration to all who accept the finite realities of existence and should be reassuring to those who wonder about, and those who accept, the end-point of a well lived life. Larry Hourany, McKinleyville

Essential Arts Editor: What CR is doing simply does not make sense (“Re-Imagining CR,” April 11). I understand that financially times are tough and that schools are being asked to focus on the basics, but if you are struggling for funds wouldn’t it be more reasonable to keep the program that profits the school? If money is scarce then why would you build a $19.3 million theater, and then cut the theater department? Yes, theater does not fit into the new three core principles plan, but it is an essential part of the community and teaches more life skills than you could ever learn in the classroom. Many schools have started to abandon their more fun, artsy and relaxing classes (my school, Northcoast Preparatory and Performing Arts Academy, cut electives this year) and that is a tragedy. As a student, I know that everyone needs a break from school and homework, and many do not have the time or the money to take classes outside of school. Students need time to enjoy themselves, bond with their peers and do something that they truly love. Sometimes, having something to look forward to makes all the difference in whether we can get through the day. So, I can only beg the CR administration to reconsider their cuts, and send my condolences to the students who have had the only reason that

they still try anymore, their true passion, ripped out from under them. Annajane Murphy, Arcata

To a Friend as Graduation Nears Remember the silly things. Not just the profound ones: discovering yourself, plotting a course through the wild and uncharted waters of your life. Remember floundering on a makeshift raft in the middle of a pond and scaring the turtles. Remember microwaving pine cones just to watch them open up. Remember staying up late making knots and paper airplanes because we had better things to do than sleep. As you leave the redwood forest for the desert you call home, I hope you take with you records molded into bowls and the smiles of raccoon skulls and a fragment of my heart on a chain. I’m sure we will be swept away now on the wings of separate journeys, and we will fly fast and far into our own happy endings.

Michelle Garces, Westwood Employee “I came to Humboldt County to fulfill a promise to my friend. She needed caretaking help with her dad and I promised I would help,” says Michelle softly. When she was looking for work, Michelle knew one of the Murphy’s employees. They said it was a great place to work. “So, I applied. I kept calling and calling, and they finally hired me. I think it was the persistence that finally got me the job. I like working with the public. We get to know our

regular customers and what they like from the deli.” “Many of the students are gluten free and vegan so we carry those products in the store and make gluten free food in the deli, too,” says Michelle. “The favorite though is Chicken Dijon Shepherd’s Pie! Our $5.99 sandwiches move quickly, too.” Michelle has worked with Murphy’s Market for about a year. She has a

daughter and two granddaughters who live in Rio Vista. “When my daughter visits we wander around Arcata and go to out dinner,” says Michelle. “For fun, too, I go to the casino for concerts. I like the Tribute to John Fogerty and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band!” Murphy’s is a great place to work and to shop, so stop by and say “hi” to Michelle and pick up something delicious for breakfast and lunch and dinner!

Blues Fest Fades “They call it stormy Monday, but Tuesday’s just as bad.” So said blues great T-Bone Walker. For local blues fans, Monday’s news was definitely bad. It’s off. No Blues by the Bay this coming Labor Day weekend. When we put out the Summer of Fun Summer Festival Guide last week, we reported that the local festival board would be meeting this week to decide the fate of this year’s blues fest. A press release from the organization sent out yesterday sealed that fate: “The Board of Directors for Redwood Coast Music Festivals Inc. announced that the organization is suspending production of the annual Blues By The Bay outdoor concert for 2013.” A lot of factors went into the blues festival’s decline. The demographics of the blues crowd tends toward baby boomers who don’t go to festivals as much as younger people. Costs remained constant or rose. The blues fest’s signature shark mouth tent alone costs $10,000 to rent. And as board member Bill Moehnke pointed out, “While the sponsorships have dried up, the headlining bands want more money. … Our mission is to help seniors and kids’ music programs; we can’t do that if we’re losing money.” Another factor was Humboldt’s unpredictable weather — rain has cut into attendance more than once since the

festival’s date was moved from mid-summer to September. The board considered downsizing by moving the show indoors but decided against it. As the festival board president Lynn McKenna put it in yesterday’s press release, the board “decided not to produce a shrunken Blues by the Bay event,” since “attendees have come to expect a spectacular, two-day festival, with nationally recognized headline blues performers.” McKenna began by saying, “We hope to be back, bigger and better than ever in 2014,” but unless something major changes, it seems unlikely. In the meantime plans are afoot to add some big name blues acts to the next Redwood Coast Jazz Festival in spring 2014. “We may even dedicate a whole venue to blues,” said Moehnke. If the response is good, that may influence possible plans for another Blues by the Bay. ● CRIME / BY RYAN BURNS / TUESDAY, MAY 14, 12:29 P.M.

Manhunt Continues Near Mattole Nearly a week into the manhunt for triple-homicide suspect Shane Franklin Miller and still no sign of him since his gold Dodge pickup was spotted near the mouth of the Mattole last Wednesday. There are now more than 70 law enforcement officers searching the Mattole Valley, the King Range Conservation Area and

nearby communities. They’re pulling out all the stops — conducting roadblocks, going door-to-door, interviewing Miller’s relatives and flying choppers overhead. They’ve even brought in cadaver dogs. To recap, Miller is suspected of killing his wife and two children on May 7 in Shingletown, a small Shasta County community. According to a guest post on the Lost Coast Outpost, Miller left a note in his truck expressing anger at family members. A community meeting will be held at the Honeydew School tomorrow at 5 p.m. A sheriff’s press release, which is on our website, describes Miller as armed and dangerous, and urges people to call 911 if they see him. ● CRIME / BY RYAN BURNS / MONDAY, MAY 13, 1:31 P.M.

Pelican Bay Named One of 10 Worst U.S. Prisons The notorious supermax to our north landed at number six on Mother Jones’ list of the 10 worst prisons in the country. The magazine has done some of the best reporting on our country’s prison system over the last couple of years, including a disturbing investigative piece on Pelican Bay from former hostage Shane Bauer. After visiting the Secure Housing Units where prisoners are kept in solitary confinement for 22 ½ hours per day, Bauer concluded that conditions there READ FULL POSTS AND SEE PHOTOS AT

are worse than what he experienced as a hostage in Iran. The Journal reported on the prison back in 2011, shortly after SHU inmates launched a hunger strike that soon spread across the state prison system. Pelican Bay prisoners are planning to resume their hunger strike in July. You’ll find links to both pieces and a video by Bauer on our website. ● BY CARRIE PEYTON DAHLBERG / MONDAY, MAY 13, 11:38 A.M.

Ranger Kills Mountain Lion Who Attacked his Dog An off-duty park ranger and his dog were attacked by a mountain lion Thursday evening at Crescent Beach just south of Crescent City. The ranger was fishing on the beach around 7:30 p.m. when he saw a mountain lion chasing his dog, according to a National Park Service press release. When the ranger started yelling, the lion attacked him — swiping at him and tearing his jeans. The man kicked and hit the lion with his fishing pole before it gave up and ran away. Neither the ranger nor his dog were hurt. California Fish and Wildlife and National Park rangers cleared the beach and a nearby campground while they searched for the animal. They found it hiding in driftwood nearby and shot it around 9:15 p.m. The mountain lion’s body will be studied further at Fish and Wildlife’s forensics lab in Sacramento. Wildlife experts say not to run if attacked by a mountain lion, as it may trigger the cat’s chase instinct. From the press release: In this particular incident, the individual who was attacked responded swiftly and appropriately by not running away from the attacking mountain lion and fighting back aggressively, striking the animal with his fishing poles and kicking the animal until the mountain lion retreated. Mountain lion attacks are extremely

rare, according to the Park Service. The last attack (and only other recorded in Redwood National Park) happened in 2007. ● EDUCATION / BY GRANT SCOTTGOFORTH / FRIDAY, MAY 10, 3:07 P.M.

Mapping #Hate Humboldt State University Professor Monica Stephens and her undergraduate students just released an interactive map showing where hate speech pops up on Twitter around the U.S. Students searched a year’s worth of geocoded tweets — more than 150,000 — that contained certain “hate words” and individually ranked them positive, negative or neutral, depending on context. Counties with more negative comments than the national average were marked on the map with a color gradient — pale blue for fewer tweets to bright red for higher concentrations. “We’re really looking at these ways that


the Internet relates to material space, how data online reflects material conditions,” Stephens said. “There have been a lot of conversations about the impacts of online bullying and the use of these words on the Internet to target specific groups.” The British newspaper The Guardian, the io9 Gawker blog and other news outlets have picked up the map. Stephens and her students previously made a map tracking tweets directing racial slurs at President Obama following the 2012 presidential election. Using her map — you can find it from a link on our website — people can see the prevalence tweets by homophobic, racist or ableist (derogatory against the disabled) language, and select individual hate words to see where they’re concentrated around the U.S. The data is proportional based on the amount of Twitter activity for each county. The map isn’t a complete reflection of hate language on Twitter. Geolocated tweets, an account option that can be turned on or off, represent a small portion


Tribes Protest at HSU Local Native American tribe leaders have organized a protest at the Humboldt State University quad today, and they accuse the school’s president, Rollin Richmond, of trying to eliminate key support services for their community. In a press release issued this morning, Yurok Chairman Thomas O’Rourke Sr. said Richmond is ignoring recommendations from a working group that spent more than 1,000 hours trying to improve and reorganize programs that serve Native Americans. “HSU President Richmond flat out ignored the work group’s reorganizational plan and recommendations,” O’Rourke said in the release. “This plan would have greatly increased our students’ ability to succeed, at a time when Native American enrollment at the University is in a freefall because of how it treats indigenous people.” In response, HSU spokesman Paul Mann pointed out that the work group failed to

reach a consensus recommendation on how best to reorganize the school’s Native American programs. And he said that HSU leaders are still reviewing the matter. The press release and Mann’s response are on our website. ● GOVERNMENT / BY GRANT SCOTTGOFORTH / WEDNESDAY, MAY 8 (PLUS UPDATES)

County and HumCPR Settle for $100k A dispute over public access to Humboldt County’s legal costs ended this week with the county agreeing to pay the Humboldt Coalition for Property Rights’ lawyer $100,000 for her costs in bringing a lawsuit against the county. The supes voted in closed session Tuesday to approve a settlement negotiated between HumCPR and county counsel. Supervisor Mark Lovelace was the only dissenting vote. He explained later in an e-mail: “Ultimately, I believe this case was politically motivated from the start, and I’m confident the court would have recognized that the County has consistently complied with the public records act in good faith every step of the way. Given that, I don’t believe the people of Humboldt County should be on the hook for the excessive payout being agreed to here.” In addition to paying Hum CPR attorney Allison Jackson, the settlement resolves a dispute over a public records act request filed in 2011. It all started when Lee Ulansey — then the executive director of HumCPR, who stepped down from that position after being appointed to the county planning commission this year — asked the county how much it was spend-

ing on outside counsel in several ongoing land use lawsuits. The most prominent of those was the county’s suit against Bob McKee and more than 30 others over subdividing the Tooby Ranch property near Garberville. Records released by the county this year showed more than $3 million spent on outside counsel during that particular legal battle, which is ongoing. Still in question after the county turned over records in February were redactions that HumCPR attorney Allison Jackson said went too far. The county had removed details on travel, meal and lodging expenses in some cases. The settlement indicates that two of the nearly 300 documents turned over will be restored in part by the county, so that only attorney-client privileged information remains redacted. Attorney Bill Bragg, who was hired to defend the county, said HumCPR agreed to limit the changes to two documents in the interest of saving time. “They agreed to … focus on just the ones they were interested in,” Bragg said. Per the settlement, the county also turned over some limited information about how much staff time was spent on particular litigation. HumCPR had demanded a full accounting, which the county said doesn’t exist. Bragg said several county attorneys and planners kept time sheets that indicated the hours spent on lawsuits targeted by HumCPR’s request — but the practice was not standard procedure. After negotiation, those records, along with some accounting paperwork, were enough to satisfy HumCPR and lead to the settlement. The settlement agreement has since been approved by a Humboldt County judge. ● Our Best Tire Value Promise is FREE with every passenger car and light truck tire purchase. Here’s what it includes…

The Disappearing Railroad Blues With its eroding line and financial woes, is it time to part ways with the North Coast Railroad Authority? By Ryan Burns




etting trains into Humboldt County has never been easy. The common shorthand for our region’s isolation is “behind the redwood curtain,” but those fuzzy-barked spires were never a barrier for rails. In fact, the lucrative lumber from logged old growths is what attracted railroad companies here in the first place. No, it’s the ground beneath our feet that makes train access such a shaky proposition. We live at the rumbly edge of a still-forming continent, perched atop a slow-motion shoving match between massive tectonic plates. Their glacial collisions — punctuated by bone-rattling earthquakes — are constantly reshaping the young mountains of the Coast Range, whose steep slopes are prone to landslides and filled with slippery, clay-rich soil known as “blue goo.” The first and only line connecting Humboldt County to the national rail system was the Northwestern Pacific Railroad, completed 99 years ago as a joint venture between the Southern Pacific and Santa Fe railroads. From Schellville, at the north end of San Pablo Bay, the rails ran north to Healdsburg, followed the banks of the Russian River into Mendocino County and then continued north to Arcata through the Eel River Canyon, one of the crumbliest, most seismically active regions in the world. The challenges were clear from day one. In October 1914, the “golden spike” ceremony celebrating the completion of the line was delayed for hours after tracks in the canyon washed out. It was a sign of things to come. Winter slides in the canyon are a regular occurrence, which makes rail maintenance expensive. As timber profits dwindled in the 1980s, the line’s private operators — first Southern Pacific, then the Eureka Southern Railroad — sought to abandon that stretch. But government of-

ficials — especially former Arcata mayor and state Assemblyman Dan Hauser — argued that rail service is essential to the North Coast economy and so the line must not be abandoned. In 1989, after Eureka Southern had gone bankrupt, the state Legislature established the North Coast Railroad Authority. This new public agency purchased the rail line north of Willits in 1992 for $6.1 million in public funds. Four years later, a consortium of public agencies bought the rest of the line for another $29 million. The mission of the NCRA, which is run by an unpaid board of nine directors representing Marin, Sonoma, Mendocino and Humboldt counties, is to maintain the rail infrastructure along its 316-mile corridor to meet the region’s freight and passenger needs. There’s just one problem: “The NCRA is flat broke!” says Director Bill Kier, who’s soon leaving the area and so resigned from the agency board two weeks ago, after representing Humboldt County for almost two years. “The NCRA is not only broke,” he elaborates, “but it’s deeply in debt.” When the rail authority was created, a companion bill that would have funded the agency was vetoed by then-Governor George Deukmejian. It’s a classic example of that California specialty: an unfunded mandate. On its own website the NCRA marvels at its continued survival as an agency, calling it “a miracle.” The rail it’s supposed to maintain is another story. During severe storms in the winter of 1996-97, a section of line in Sonoma County washed out and operations ceased. In 1998 the Northwestern Pacific became the first railroad in U.S. history to be shut down by federal regulators for chronic safety violations. Rail cars parked on the line have remained stranded there ever since. Meanwhile, the line through Eel River

But who should get to use it? And for what? And if we are truly cut off from the southern end of the line, does Humboldt County have any use for the NCRA anymore?

The NCRA is a public agency with a legislative mandate to connect Humboldt to outside markets via rail, but it has no money or intention to do so (assuming you take its executive director’s word for it). Meanwhile its mission — along with the requests of NWP Co. — is interfering with trail-building and fish restoration efforts. Even for people who advocate tourist and excursion trains, that raises a question. Are Humboldt’s interests best served by a debt-ridden state agency that’s focused on running trains in Marin and Sonoma counties? Humboldt Bay Harbor Commissioner Mike Wilson doesn’t think so. “If it’s true that the NCRA is not going to deliver service from the Bay Area to Humboldt County in our lifetime,

the various issues it’s facing. He didn’t sugarcoat it: “NCRA has been digging itself into an increasingly deep financial pit since its creation 20-plus years ago,” Kier wrote. “It is now nearly $8 million in debt to a slew of creditors. There are no prospects — none that I can see — for NCRA righting itself.” No one with the NCRA has previously acknowledged the financial situation quite so bluntly, but a brief look at the agency’s books (which Kier also sent to Fennell) shows that he’s right: On paper the agency has $33.6 million in assets, but those are fixed assets — meaning that, unlike liquid assets, they’re tied to physical property and can’t easily be used to pay bills. Kier’s note spelled out the implications: “If every creditor demanded payment within one year, as they are entitled to do, NCRA would have to come up with $7.8 million in liquid assets. Impossible.” Through the first half of the 2012-13 fiscal year the NCRA lost more than $50,000, and as of last November it owed more than $20,000 to its accountant, $250,000 to its consulting engineer and more than $284,000 to its legal counsel. Meanwhile, out of $926,417 of actual total expenses in fiscal year 2011-12, the NCRA spent almost 20 percent ($185,805) on salaries for just two people — Stogner and an executive assistant. On top of that the agency sent $63,867 to CalPERS for the two employees’ retirement benefits and spent another $19,998 on Stogner’s health insurance benefits. The NCRA has historically had three main sources of income: fees collected for access along its right of way (for cables, telephone wires and the like); payments on roughly 35 rail cars that it leases out through the Boston Consulting Group; and the lease with operator NWP Co. The returns on rail car leases have been dwindling because the cars are depreciating. And the lease with NWP Co. hasn’t generated a payment since July 1, 2012. From October 2006, shortly after the signing of the lease, until March 2011 the railroad company made advance lease payments of $20,000 per month to the NCRA — part of a memorandum of understanding designed to help the NCRA pay its bills. NWP Co. then stopped

making payments altogether until a new lease amendment was negotiated in June 2011 at which point the railroad company briefly resumed making payments. This time around, though, it deducted a large percentage each month as reimbursement for the earlier “advance” payments. In October 2011 it again stopped making payments, offering instead to loan the NCRA $15,000 per month, with interest. Last July, those loans ceased, too. The NCRA board has agreed to all of this because, under the terms of the lease, it has no right to demand anything more — not until NWP Co. starts generating a large profit. Bernard Meyers, one of two NCRA directors from Marin County, calls the lease “terrible.” He and other critics allege that the “Operator Agreement” with NWP Co. all but gave away the store. For one thing it gives the private operator the unilateral ability to extend the lease for up to 105 years. And here’s the money hitch: It also says that the company doesn’t have to make any lease payments to the NCRA unless and until it has a year with $5 million in net profits — which could conceivably never happen. While NWP Co. is responsible for normal maintenance on the sections of rail where it’s running trains, the lease imposes no requirements on the company to do rehabilitation, restoration or storm damage repairs — all of that falls on the shoulders of the scantily funded NCRA. The Journal called NWP Co. CEO John Williams on Monday afternoon to ask about the lease. He said, “I have no comment on that, thank you,” and hung up the phone. Meyers and other critics say there’s reason to be suspicious about the lease’s origins. He alleges that the two main negotiators for NWP Co. were Williams and the company’s general counsel, Doug Bosco. That’s the same Doug Bosco who served eight years in Congress representing Humboldt and the rest of the thenFirst Congressional District. In the 1992 House banking scandal, Bosco was called out by the House Ethics Committee, along with 21 other House members, for keeping his government checking account overdrawn for months at a time. He went on to establish himself as a behind-thescenes political powerbroker with investments in gravel, timber, development — and NWP Co. On the other side of the 2006 closeddoor lease negotiations, Meyers says, were NCRA’s legal counsel, Chris Neary, and its executive director, Mitch Stogner. That’s the same Stogner who served eight years continued on next page

continued from previous page working as Bosco’s chief assistant during his time on Capitol Hill. In 2010, Meyers wrote a memo to Marin County’s board of supervisors in which he theorized, “Perhaps this is the inevitable outcome when an obscure public agency is given the opportunity to draw public funds without proper checks and balances.” Neary disputes Meyers’ allegations, saying he and Williams negotiated the lease without any involvement from Bosco or Stogner. Other NCRA directors, along with Stogner, defend the lease, saying that NWP Co. was the only qualified bidder for what was a risky endeavor. Due to years of financial mismanagement, Caltrans has labeled the NCRA a “high-risk” agency, meaning it cannot be a lead agency for federal funding purposes. Caltrans audited the NCRA in 2009 and recommended it remain labeled “high-risk” because of its financial instability and “an accounting system not in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.” Meanwhile, with only a small southern segment of the right of way in regular use, the NCRA has done the groundwork for trains to venture as far north as Willits — should that ever become profitable. Disputes over the sufficiency of that groundwork have landed the NCRA in court.

The Lawsuits

Friends of the Eel River and Californians for Alternatives to Toxics (CATs) filed separate suits against the NCRA two years ago, challenging a taxpayer-funded environmental impact report on resumed rail service between Schellville and Willits. Both groups claim that the report violates the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Friends of the Eel argues that the report should have addressed all 316 miles of NCRA’s line, rather than stopping at Willits. CATs says the report also fails to address the toxins — creosote, lead, dioxin, etc. — that could be released when repairing old tracks and ties. The NCRA sought to sidestep the challenges altogether by claiming CEQA has no bearing. Rail operations, its attorney argued, are under the purview of the federal Surface Transportation Board, which granted the agency permission to resume service back in 2007. With his preliminary ruling last week, Marin County Judge Roy O. Chernus agreed. But lawyers for the two environmental groups showed up the next morning to argue that the NCRA made commitments to follow state environmental laws anyway and sealed those commitments by accepting state money. The environmental report and related

The Fish

historic channel east of Laytonville that drains a 24-square-mile watershed into the river. The creek mouth was buried 100 years ago by construction of the railroad. The group would like to remove a section of rail and a bridge so it can restore the channel to its original alignment, which would revive 10-14 miles of stream habitat for all three species, Mierau said. Earlier this year, CalTrout was on the verge of receiving grant funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and American Rivers to complete an engineering design, but the program required a letter of support from the landowner — NCRA. The agency’s board was torn on the issue. Directors expressed support for restoring fish habitat, but some worried that approving the project could somehow jeopardize their case with the environmental lawsuits. Plus, the agency’s private operator, NWP Co., was insisting that any infrastructure removed for restoration be replaced. Replacing the bridge alone would cost $10 million, according to an engineer hired by the company, and that’s well beyond the scope of the grant. At its March meeting the NCRA board voted 5-4 against approval, and as a result, the grant opportunity was lost. Mierau was frustrated. “I think they have an obligation to help remedy some of the disastrous consequences that their predecessors wrought upon this river,” he said, adding that this particular project is far and away the best opportunity to do that. “And I don’t agree with the reasoning they’re giving me for not supporting it.” The March meeting was Humboldt County Supervisor Estelle Fennell’s first day as a director on the NCRA board (she replaced Clif Clendenen, whom she defeated in last year’s 2nd District supervisorial race), and in her first vote she joined the narrow

majority in shooting down the project. “It was a difficult situation,” she said in a follow-up interview. As an environmentalist, she said, she’s completely behind the effort to restore fish habitat. “I would say that the majority of the board supports that concept, but they’re in a difficult spot because of this whole legal thing.” Neary, NCRA’s legal counsel, advised a “no” vote and Fennell joined four other directors in following his advice. But Kier, Humboldt County’s other representative on the board and a certified fisheries scientist, didn’t understand Neary’s reasoning. “We’ve taken the position that we have no plans for resurrecting service through the Eel River Canyon in the foreseeable future,” Kier told the Journal. “It seems to me that allowing somebody to take out a chunk of track ... would only confirm that.” Regardless, Fennell and Mierau both say they’re optimistic that a Woodman Creek restoration project will eventually be completed. CalTrout recently submitted another funding proposal to California Fish and Wildlife’s Fisheries Restoration Grants Program. And the group already has funding and board approval to repair fish passage at the Bridge Creek railroad crossing near Holmes Flat. Woodman Creek’s fate may depend on the outcome of the environmental lawsuits, and on the requests of NWP Co. Scott Greacen, executive director of Friends of the Eel, said, “Over the last few years it really seems to be the operator wagging the agency.”

The Trails

Most of the NCRA’s right of way around Humboldt Bay runs parallel to busy freeways where cyclists and pedestrians breathe exhaust and risk their lives

daily. As year after year goes by with no viable plans to return trains to the line (with the exception of the speeder cars that run short routes across Eureka and the Samoa peninsula), local trail advocates have been eyeing the route with increased desire. (Disclosure: Journal Publisher Judy Hodgson has been active on this issue as a member of the Bay [T]rail Advocates, a group promoting rails with trails.) The NCRA has never been comfortable with the idea of railbanking. The process, which involves putting a trail atop an out-of-service rail corridor until train service is set to resume, keeps rail rights of way intact. But NCRA’s trails policy, adopted in 2009, states that any trail development in its corridors must be compatible with railroad use. As in simultaneous railroad use. In other words, the best local trail advocates could hope for is rail and trail, side-by-side. But last year, the NCRA showed signs of potentially budging on that position. Responding to a request from the county Board of Supervisors, the agency formed the Humboldt Bay Rail Corridor Committee, an ad hoc group of three board directors who gathered data and opinions about how best to use the corridor. In November the committee came back to the full board with a report that offered hope to trail boosters. It said that while putting a trail atop the rail does go against official policy, some “clearly defined and strictly limited exceptions” to that policy could be made “without compromising prospects for the restoration of rail service.” The NCRA’s consulting engineer examined the line from Eureka north to Arcata and around the bay to Samoa, and he was surprised by the level of deterioration, concluding that there is clearly “a cost of doing nothing.” But there would also be significant costs to develop the line, whether for rail or trail — or, most expensively, both. A team of engineers from Eureka’s GHD Inc. found that in order to comply with the NCRA’s current trail policy, some tricky engineering would be involved. For example, a trail would have to be cantilevered off the side of the Eureka Slough bridge. Such measures would jack project costs up significantly. The NCRA report estimated that developing rail-with-trail between Arcata and Eureka would cost $18.5 million, compared to just $5 million for rail-to-trail on the same stretch. Rail projects by themselves wouldn’t be cheap either. Members of the Timber Heritage Museum have suggested a tourist/

excursion train around the bay, but the NCRA’s consulting engineer found that it would cost between $14.2 million and $16.5 million just to get the line between Eureka and Samoa back in working condition. The costs are daunting all around, but Hank Seemann, the county’s deputy director of public works, is optimistic. He said that the proposed Annie & Mary Trail from Arcata to Blue Lake got put on the back burner for a while to work on the Bay Trail, but progress is being made there, too. “You could say it’s building momentum,” he said. The Humboldt County Association of Governments, led by Executive Director Marcella Clem, conducted an environmental assessment of the route, and Seemann has been investigating the land deeds along the right of way — a challenging project since some of the deeds date back to the 1880s, when descriptions of property boundaries were often vague and informal. The ownership issue on the Annie & Mary line got complicated when the NCRA learned that the previous owners, Simpson Timber Co., never formally abandoned it. This left a mess that’s still being straightened out. The city of Arcata, meanwhile, recently got CEQA clearance for a trail from the city to the Bracut Lumber yard on Highway 101, though a Coastal Development permit is still required. And the county is working with the city of Eureka and the association of governments on a conceptual plan to reach Bracut from the south. There may be funding available if the trail project is tied to Caltrans’ Highway 101 safety corridor project. All in all, a diverse mix of government agencies and community groups is involved in trail development efforts. “I think the bottom line is everybody’s rowing in the same direction now,” Seemann said. “I think that’s really positive and we can make a lot of progress now.”

When it comes

to a train connection to Humboldt County, on the other hand, progress is limited to memories and dreams, whether it’s memories of the Northwestern Pacific Railroad or dreams of building a new line from scratch by carving a path over the mountains to our east. One is 15 years gone and the other may never come. But today there’s a corridor connecting our communities, from Blue Lake to Arcata, around the bay to Samoa and Eureka and south into a beautiful river valley where endangered fish spawn. The corridor is publicly owned. Which means the public — including the people of Humboldt County — can decide what to do with it. l • North Coast Journal • Thursday, May 16, 2013

was still pitch black, and Tom pulled into our driveway, the knock of his diesel breaking the pre-dawn quiet. For several days I’d been building a small pile of clam digging gear on the side of our front porch, preparing for my first clamming trip ever. I had erred on the side of overkill. I tossed most of it in the cab; shovel in the back. By the time we crested the hill south of Clam Beach, we could see the eastern sky lightening faintly and a stream of headlights exiting 101 and turning west. The numbers would soon swell and people would spread along the length of Clam Beach north of the mouth of Strawberry Creek. And this was a Friday, at an hour when most sane people were still in bed. This was my twilight zone. Tom pulled on his waders. I just had shorter rubber boots. We donned net bags to store our bounty and garden gloves with rubberized grips. We carried shovels, and Jeff, who joined us here, opted for a clam gun. The gun is basically a section of plastic or metal pipe closed at one end except for a small air hole, which can be covered to create the suction needed to extract a reluctant clam from its sandy bed. The tapping, or “bonking,” as Jeff called it, causes the clam to withdraw its siphon,


On the Eureka Boardwalk •••

n a recent late April morning, in the hazy half light of dawn, I found myself wearing rubber boots, burdened by several layers of clothing and a shovel, and marching awkwardly through soft sand of the fore dunes to the ocean. There were hundreds of us, bulky and burdened, in a surreal trudge toward the waterline. As we dispersed along the beach, tapping repetitively with shovel handles, it could have been a scene from any zombie movie. I imagined Rod Serling’s voice-over, “There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition.” I have joined the throngs of Humboldt county clam diggers. This area is filled with clam-digging devotees, human predators who religiously study tide charts, circle the dates of minus tides on their calendars, and make the pilgrimage to our flat, sandy beaches. My venture into their world had begun when it

leaving the slightest of indentations or dimples on the surface of the beach. That “tell,” to the practiced eye, is enough to trigger a quick series of actions designed to get the clam before it can escape. If you are using a shovel, you quickly dig straight down on the ocean side of the dimple, then reach your hand into the sandy/watery mixture to grasp the razor clam. This is the theory, anyway. Jeff, who has been clamming for two years, noted, “It is not so easy as it looks.” I soon agreed. There seemed to be two kinds of clam hunters. Those who preferred the shallow water periodically washed with waves and those who focused on the damp but drier beach. During minus tides, both options are viable. I focused my tapping on the drier areas just above the reach of the waves. “Fewer moving parts,” I rationalized. However, Tom, in the water, was the one getting the clams. I declared the sand bar I had been working devoid of clams. “Maybe that is why the bulk of the diggers were cheek by jowl farther north,” I thought, visualizing the clams jumping into their hands. Others soon drifted into my hopeless claim. “Not much here,” I warned them as they tapped and stomped an area Jeff and I had just finished tapping and stomp-

ing. Almost immediately, several of these veterans were on their knees within mere yards of me, groping for clams in a small pit they had revealed with a quick thrust of the shovel. Out came a hand grasping a razor clam. This process was repeated several more times before I edged over, hoping to learn their secrets. Most of these fellows had been clamming since their youth and generously pointed out the clues they were seeing. For the life of me, I couldn’t see them. Jeff spotted a minuscule hole in the wet sand and ordered me to dig. I heard the sound of shovel hitting shell, submerging my hand to grab the wounded clam. I held my prize aloft accompanied by a triumphant “whoop.” Unfortunately, that moment was the high point of my outing. As we returned to the parking lot some time later, we encountered two biologists surveying the exiting clam-anistas and recording the number of clams each had bagged. I was clearly an outlier, although by no means the only one leaving with such a light bag. As the tide finally cleared the beaches, though, most of the clam diggers had been much more successful. These robust harvests represent a resurgence of the Siliqua patula or Pacific razor clam on Clam Beach. I spoke with

one woman who remembered, as a little girl, following along after a tractor pulling a harrow down the beach during minus tides and picking up the exposed clams. Since 1953 there have been restrictions on clamming along the beaches of Del Norte and Humboldt counties. For example, during odd-numbered years, Clam Beach south of Strawberry Creek is closed and during even-numbered years, the beach between Strawberry Creek and Little River is closed. A daily limit of 20 (regardless of size or if broken) was imposed in 1963. However, in the early 1980s the population of clams on Clam Beach seriously declined, and it is only over the past few years that the numbers have recovered. These clam beds will be exposed again by a week of minus tides between May 23 and 30. For the first couple of days, the low tides will occur before daylight, but by May 25 the conditions should be excellent. Do not forget that you will need to have a fishing license. Tom was kind enough to share his success with me once we got home, and patient enough to extend his instruction to cleaning and gutting. Adult razor clams are about 4 inches long (the largest on

record in California was a 7-inch specimen) and relatively meaty. Most of my exposure to clams has involved the use of a can opener. Fresh clam meat is a very different culinary experience. Breaded and lightly pan fried with a little lemon, it is delicious. Some of the remainder has been converted into chowder. And, once cleaned, clam meat freezes well too. When you catch a living clam with your own hands, you realize the importance of honoring the sacrifice that clam has made by taking real care in food preparation. Initially, I wasn’t sure whether to try again. Given the cost of just the fishing license for my recent adventure, that was a lot of clams to pay for one measly bivalve. But a couple of days later, I was back walking the beach and encountered another wave of successful clamsters. When I got home, I checked the tide tables and circled the dates in my calendar for the next minus tides. I knew I would return. l

Before You Name Your Child or Dog By Jennifer Savage


Porch test: Make a list of potential pup names. Open your front door. Step outside. Holler out the first one on the list. Holler it again. How’s that feel? Do it one more time. If you find yourself cringing that you just shouted “Mr. Scritchie!” at the neighborhood multiple times, cross it off the list and move on. Repeat. For the kid ver-

sion, drive to a playground in a different city than the one you live in. Yell out the moniker you’re considering bestowing on your impending heir. Consider that you’re going to be saying this name often and in public. Can you sing-song “Where are you, Huckleberry?” with ease? And why go to a playground far away? Because you don’t want to be remembered as “that weird

guy” when you have an actual kid you’re pushing on the swings. (One perhaps not named Huckleberry.) 2. Whether dog or child, we have enough Bodhis, folks. This is Humboldt County, after all. 3. Which reminds me, don’t name your kid after a strain of weed. Seriously. Sativa Blue is not going to thank you. Indica Rose, Ganja Mae? No. Don’t do it. Blaze may seem dope when you’re high, but it’s not necessarily something you want to write on a form for the next 18 years. (Naming your dog after pot? You really need to get out more.) Other things to not name your kid after: food, bands, brands, Greek Gods, cities. (Especially bands named after cities. They’re the worst.) 4. Speaking of forms, do this: Write the name under consideration — first, middle, last — on a piece of paper. Repeat 50 times. You’ll be filling out approximately 1.34 million forms over the next 18 years, an important fact to remember. In hindsight, I’d have gone with Jo, Cy and

Al, forget the middle names. Same goes for the dog. Do you really want to explain to the vet that your animal’s name is Sunshine Muffin McSnuggles The Champ? 5. For the love of all that is good in the world, please, please, please don’t confuse injecting random letters or bizarre pronunciation with originality. Don’t spell Lisa, “Leasaugh.” Don’t pronounce Lisa, “Leh-say.” I mean, you can. It’s your baby dog. Bonus: If you take away only one piece of advice, think about this: What you name your child is the single most important decision you will make as a parent. Not really — your child will most likely be way more screwed up by other mistakes you make, and your dog won’t care at all. You’ll be the one living with the consequences — because what you name the creature in your care says not too much about who they are, but a whole lot about who you are.

It’s the end of a process that involved weekly presentations to their academic advisers, writing a statement of purpose and a script to

carry it out, and last weekend’s first performances in front of audiences. Then earlier this week, they faced the faculty for critiques, followed by a few days to revise and refine their pieces. So elements of these shows, billed as The Mothership: Thesis Festival 2013, are probably going to be different this weekend from what I saw on opening night. These pieces are

also different in kind from last spring’s thesis shows, one of which was based on a story and poem by Edgar Allen Poe, and the other on a real if obscure historical person (Annie Edson Taylor, the first person to intentionally tumble down Niagara Falls in a barrel and survive). In contrast, none of the shows this year have an identified source. The first piece is Potato, devised and played

by Janessa Johnsrude, Anson Smith and Kolleen Kintz. It began with a projected star field and a recording of legendary astronomer Carl Sagan talking about the multitude of discrete worlds in the universe. We were then presented with three human characters confined (for some reason) to a seedy motel room. Two of them are carnival performers, who eventually reveal their knife-throwing act. Their relationships seemed more improvised than explored, but that’s as solid as the story gets. It was ambitious and inventive, edgy at times, with skillful physical movement and stagecraft. Actors of one gender playing stereotypical characters of the other oscillated between being marginally meaningful and an amusing if pointless display of virtuosity. While incidents were clear enough, even if uninteresting beyond their execution, I found the

piece as a whole incoherent. If there was more than a trivial relationship to what Sagan was saying (in several ghostly phone calls as well as the introduction), it eluded me. So did the significance — or humor — of a giant potato. In Summit Fever, three clowns (played by Ruxy Cantir, Anthony Arnista and Amelia Van Brunt) were making their 78th and 79th attempts to climb Mount Everest. Since clowns naturally have an adversarial relationship with the world (an insight I owe to Dell’Arte’s Lauren Wilson), the struggles with wind, snow and clashing personalities were well conceived and played. With the exceptions of a misplaced sight gag (made famous by Groucho and Harpo on either side of a mirror) and a deft physical joke repeated too many times without variation, this was the simplest and most successful piece. Because I Love You Most of All is another creepy sex and violence mashup, with a sheriff, a young woman, an enigmatic old lady and her sinister henchman, all in a David Lynch country-and-western dreamscape. Again, the performances by Jacob Trillo, Meridith Anne Baldwin,

Ryan Musil and Lisa McNeely were skillful, but again it seemed like disembodied bits and characters, as if churned up by late night channel surfing. It’s certainly not the fault of the students who worked on these pieces for weeks, but because of the ugly revelations coming out of Cleveland and Shasta, I found the acts of man-on-woman violence of this and the first piece especially disturbing. Michael Foster designed the lighting, Daniel Spencer is technical director and Lydia Foreman the costume coordinator for all three shows. The Mothership: Thesis Festival 2013 is onstage at Dell’Arte Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m. Meanwhile, as the school year ends at College of the Redwoods, there is mixed news. As noted in Stage Matters (“40 Years of Astonishment,” March 14), the Humboldt Light Opera Company’s anniversary concert featured a plea and a petition to save CR’s music courses, many of which were slated to end this spring. Recently CR announced that these classes are back on their schedule, open to CR students for credit, but also to community mem-

bers. However, there are no drama courses on the fall schedule for the main Eureka campus. A new performing arts center will open, although it’s being criticized as inadequate for theatrical productions (“Re-imagining CR,” April 11).

Coming Up: To complete

their first year’s work, Dell’Arte International students present The Finals, a set of 10-minute plays that audience members can “grade,” May 23-25 at 8 p.m. in the Carlo Theatre. Next up at North Coast Repertory Theatre is Next to Normal, the 2010 Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, with mental illness as its subject and a rock score driving its style. Directed by Tom Phillips with musical direction by Dianne Zuleger, it features Andrea Zvaleko, Gino Bloomberg, Kevin Sharkey, Brandy Rose, Luke Sikora and Alex Moore. It opens May 23. www. Not opening in July is the previously announced musical Boeing, Boeing at Ferndale Repertory Theatre. However, the musical Victor/ Victoria will open there as scheduled on July 19. l

continued from previous page ing jokes; local radio personality John Matthews will serve as emcee (usually Sherae’s job) and Drifter Killer will play a few tunes. There will be cake. “Plus,” as the birthday girl points out, “there’s booze.” Speaking of birthdays and radio personalities, Lyndsey Battle, the uke-slinging host of KHUM’s “Meet Me In The Morning” (Sundays starting at 9 a.m.), is turning 30 and celebrating with something called “Airheads: A local band takeover of KHUM celebrating 30 years of Battle!!!” If you remember the movie Airheads, the story involved the members of a rock band commandeering a radio station to get it to play the band’s new record. Lyndsey’s version is a live broadcast from Redwood Curtain Brewing with a slew of bands and solo performers including Gunsafe (apparently it’s also Stella’s birthday), gypsy jazzers La Musique Diabolique, country swingin’ Kenny Ray and the Mighty Rovers, Beatles tribute Silver Hammer, thelittlestillnotbigenough, Eel River, Kurt Vonnegut’s Orange Chicken, Colin Vance, Josephine Johnson, Chris Parreira, Todd Krider, Lela Roy, Jeremiah Wiebe-Anderson, Cory Goldman (who plays with Lyndsey) “and probably more.” All that between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Sunday. Then everyone is invited to head over to the Arcata Marsh for a squirt gun fight. San Francisco-based “Americana/folk/ gypsy/jazz/rock/surf” combo The Jaunting Martyrs has roots in Humboldt, so it’s natural that the band is celebrating the release of its eponymous CD with a party Friday night at the Jambalaya. I previewed a few songs on Bandcamp — sounds great. I especially liked the ones with fiddler/mandolinist/guitarist Justine Lucas out front on vocals. Local jazz/funk/blues band River Valley Mud opens. Other grad night haps (on Saturday): Missing Link Soul Night No. 19 at Humboldt Brews will undoubtedly be off the hook. Vidagua is around the corner at the Jambalaya with DJ Gobi and special guest Madi Simmons. The Bruce and the Dancers Relay for Life Fundraiser at the Arcata Community Center has blues by Buddy Reed and the Rip It Ups and the Jim Lahman Band (for dancing). SB Lounge and Space Biscuit share a bill at the Bar-Fly Pub. Seattle’s “tropical punks” Week of Wonders play two shows Saturday, an early Placebo gig at the Ink Annex with Tabor Mountain and Blanket Ghost, then at Five Eleven with those “reverbalicious” Lost Luvs. Blue Lake is hopping with Rooster McClintock and Twist of the Python at the Logger, and Kulica at the Mad River Tap Room. There’s also neo-trad Latin American music by Quijeremá at the Arcata Playhouse.

And it’s Rutabaga Ball time at the Portuguese Hall with the wild and crazy Kinetic Queen Contest followed by DJ dancing with Itchie Fingaz, Marjo Lak and Pressure Anya. The Eureka Symphony closes its current season with shows at the Arkley Center Friday and Saturday. The concert includes Sibelius’ “Finlandia,” but the main feature is guest soloist, Ivana Bilic, a Croatian marimba virtuoso performing two works for marimba and orchestra: Pablo de Sarasate’s familiar “Carmen Fantasy” and a new piece, Emmanuel Séjourné’s “Concerto for Marimba and Strings.” Show up an hour before the show to hear “Music Notes” by Ron Samuels of Marimba One, an Arcata company that’s one of the world’s top marimba makers. He’ll be talking about recent marimba innovations, and I’m certain he’ll discuss the upcoming Zeltsman Marimba Festival, an international showcase for marimba players coming to Arcata from June 30 to July 13, with a bunch of performances in HSU’s Native Forum and other shows at the Arcata Playhouse. Seattle saxophonologist Skerik plays in about a dozen bands. He’s coming to play at the Jambalaya Tuesday with Bandalabra, a quartet with fellow Seattleites Andy Coe (on electric guitar), Evan Flory-Barnes (upright bass) and Dvonne Lewis (drums) that Skerik describes as “Fela Kuti meeting Steve Reich in rock’s backyard.” Pc4 opens. Wondering what to do next Wednesday? German organist Christoph Bull is at Christ Episcopal Church in Eureka playing what he describes as “organ music, rock music and rocking organ music” in a benefit for the church’s summer music and arts camp. L.A.-based electro duo niceFingers is at Nocturnum for Whomp Whomp Wednesday with some of the usual WWW residents. It’s also graduation night for Va Va Voom’s Spring 2013 Burlesque Bootcamp. Prospects for spots in Va Va’s review are strutting their stuff at the Wave Lounge with Pressure/Anya playing for a dance party afterward. Gashcat and Ghost Foot, a pair of alt. rock bands from Shreveport, La., stop off at Jambalaya on a West Coast tour. (Gashcat records for Sub Pop.) And across town at the Arcata Theatre Lounge, it’s the infamous Detroit rapper Danny Brown. Described by MTV as “one of rap’s most unique figures in recent memory,” Mr. Brown has been blowing up big time lately, playing Coachella, and more recently, signing with Goliath Artists, the mega-management team that also handles Eminem and Blink-182. His “Old & Reckless Tour” (named for an upcoming album) also includes the L.A.-based crew OverDoz. Opening the show is my favorite rhyme spitter The L|A Dodger, although I have to admit I’m prejudiced by the fact that she works down the hall from me. Curious?

18 saturday Let It Commence Graduation: that final, traditional hurdle between a priceless education and decades of paying off student loans. It’s the magical time of year when justifiably proud parents struggle to understand exactly what the deal is with Arcata, while their matriculated children try to understand exactly what the deal is with their parents. On Saturday, May 18, after campus maps have been doled out and free parking has been secured (that’s right, the only time of year when HSU doesn’t charge an arm and a leg to park), parents will flock to the Humboldt State Redwood Bowl for hours and hours and hours of exhilarating, graduation antics: speeches, lists of mispronounced names and more speeches. Three separate ceremonies unfold throughout the day, one for each college within Humboldt State University. The College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences kicks off the day at 8:30 a.m., the College of Natural Resources and Sciences has its turn at noon, and the day draws to a close with the College of Professional Studies ceremony at 3:30 p.m. Each ceremony takes approximately two hours, and will feature music and a commencement speaker or event (no, not Alexander Von Humboldt, no matter what you’ve heard). Be sure to give yourself at least 30 minutes to find decent parking, and include some extra time for the uphill walk to the Redwood Bowl. Humboldt State is like the campus Escher built: Everywhere you go requires you to walk uphill, regardless of the laws of physics. For more information about the commencement ceremonies (including restrictions on beach balls and other tomfoolery), head over to commencement. — Dev Richards

The EUREKA SYMPHONY’S season finale concert on Friday and Saturday at the Arkley Center features Croatian marimba soloist Ivana Bilic performing two works for marimba and orchestra: Pablo de Sarasate’s “Carmen Fantasy” and Emmanuel Séjourné’s “Concerto for Marimba and Strings.” The program also includes Sibelius’ “Finlandia” and “Symphony Singulaire” by the Swedish composer Franz Berwald. Before each concert Ron Samuels, founder of the internationally recognized Arcata company Marimba One, will discuss new directions for the marimba.

Rutabaga Queen Sohotshe Burns gives up her throne and crowns the 2013 queen Saturday night at the Rutabaga Ball at Portuguese Hall. Chosen by a cadre of former (and eternal) queens, the new RUTABAGA QUEEN will represent the Kinetic Grand Championship (coming Memorial Day weekend) and all things Kinetic until a year from now when the next queen is chosen. The annual ball takes a Kinetic twist on beauty pageants with the usual talent contest, ballgown competition and Q&A taking on an often surreal air. DJs Gabe Pressure, Marjo Lak and Itchie Fingaz keep the party jumping. Photo by Bob Doran

Women and Song Humboldt’s got some strong women, some fierce women, some powerful women, some outrageous women, but even so, our badass women don’t always get the recognition that they’re due. Trinidad musician Maria Bartlett noticed that lack of recognition in our music scene, and so she did something about it. Bartlett launched a monthly women-only performance series at the Westhaven Center for the Arts that concludes this weekend with a Saturday night performance and a Sunday workshop. The seeds were sown when Bartlett noticed that an event up at Moonstone was a real sausage fest — men doing sound and men doing music. So she conceived the Women’s Music Night series as safe space for women musicians to come together, perform and honor those who have passed on. The series launched in 2012, featuring all ages, all performance levels and all genres. For its final evening, local women perform all-original material in a variety of styles. Expect to hear Kahish (she goes by one name, like Madonna), Josephine Johnson, Eileen Hemphill-Haley and Sarah Torres.



The next day, Kahish will host a three-hour workshop for songwriters of all levels at the Westhaven Center. Kahish is a certified hypnotherapist with over 40 years of songwriting experience, so she’s practiced in the art of putting people at ease and facilitating creativity. She can practically write songs while unconscious. The Women in Music finale at the Westhaven Center for the Arts is this Saturday, May 18, at 7 p.m., and admission is $5 to $10 on a sliding scale. Kahish’s songwriting workshop is Sunday, May 19, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and admission is $10. Call 677-9493 or 637-5382 for more information, or visit — Emily Hobelmann

dvds dvd DVDs to Discover or Revisit With the 2013 summer blockbuster season about to ramp up, you may be looking for a way to escape the Fast & Furious (Star) Trek into Iron Man Darkness Part III. Fortunately there are DVDs, popcorn and couches at home. For something completely different, you may even want to venture back into the less predictable, more adventurous cinema of the 1960s. Pierre Etaix. “Who is Pierre Etaix and where has he been all your life?” After years of pleas, petitions and legal battles, Criterion Collection has finally unveiled the clown-turned-filmmaker’s long lost works. The new DVD set includes five features and three shorts, made between 1961 and 1971, which display an artistry every bit as creatively rewarding as his heroes Max Lindor, Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. A disciple of what he called “le gag,” Etaix began his film career assistant-directing fellow French comedian Jacques Tati’s Mon Oncle. A chance meeting with writer Jean-Claude Carriere, a frequent Buñuel collaborator, spawned their decade-long collaboration. Etaix’s works are remarkably diverse. With every endeavor he seemed to re-invent what his films were capable of, deftly transitioning from the black and white visual puns of romantic comedy (The Suitor, 1963) and circus tale (Yo Yo, 1965) to his playful yet scathing departure into nonfiction, Land of Milk And Honey (1971). Lambasted by critics after this creative take on the documentary format, Pierre packed up his director’s chair and started a clown school with the help of his actress wife. He is very pleased to know that people still enjoy his films. The Loved One. The recent death of comedian Jonathan Winters has led to renewed interest in his films, and The Loved One (1965) is an overlooked gem. A blatantly subversive dark comedy in the vein of Dr. Strangelove, the film is based on a short satire written by Evelyn Waugh after traveling to Hollywood to work on an adaptation of his novel Brideshead Revisited. During this time, he happened to visit Forest Lawn Memorial Park, chic resting place of the stars. Offended by the pretense of both the American film industry and the American funeral industry, Waugh wove these into the story of an aimless British poet who falls for a doe-eyed devotee of Whispering Glades, the cult-like funeral parlor where she works. U.K. director Tony Richardson was joined by American screenwriter Terry Southern (Dr. Strangelove, Easy Rider), editor Hal Ashby (who would later direct Harold & Maude) and cinematographer Haskell Wexler (Matewan). The impressive ensemble cast members, including Rod Steiger and Liberace, do things they wouldn’t normally do. Jonathan Winters gives standout performances in two supporting roles, as the money-minded creators of both Whispering Glades and the nearby pet cemetery. Promising “something to offend everyone,” Richardson hoped The Loved One would ruffle feathers among the shallow West Coasters he encountered. To his delight, many displeased studio execs actually walked out at the premiere. The film’s deviant humor has aged well. — Merrick McKinlay Merrick McKinlay is co-owner of La Dolce Video, an independent video rental store in Arcata.

THE GREAT GATSBY. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Gatsby is a near-perfect novel, one of the indispensable works of 20th century American art. This movie from Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge), on the other hand, seems like it was adapted from a ninth-grader’s term paper on the book.

40 North Coast Journal • Thursday, May 16, 2013 •

Fitzgerald captured a distinct place in time, rendering 1920s New York in all its seedy, rising glory. But he also told a story founded on timeless themes: appearance versus reality; wealth as a dividing line; misplaced love. The book is a compact marvel of deceptively complex structure, gorgeous language and insightful, nuanced characterizations — most of which Luhrmann forgoes in favor of cartoonish depictions of Jazz Age hijinks. Narrated by Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire), Gatsby tells the story of a mysterious, vastly wealthy playboy. That’s Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), who has recently moved to Long Island’s “West Egg” and who hosts wildly excessive parties while keeping his true identity hidden. He and Carraway become friends and enter the sphere of the old money, “East Egg” Buchanans. Turns out Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan) were romantically involved in the past, and he’s spent the intervening years accumulating wealth and angling to win her back. For some reason, the movie employs a hackneyed framing device that finds Carraway in treatment for alcoholism and depression. His doctor urges him to journal about his feelings, and the story takes shape within those pages. Not only is this an overused storytelling method, but it

cheapens the novel’s meticulous construction by mere association. Luhrmann’s visual style is vibrant, unique and often quite effective. Much of the first half of Gatsby throbs and sparkles with a likeable, refreshing intensity. Sadly, most of those scenes appeared in the trailer, which has been playing before every other movie for the last nine months or so. (Gatsby was originally slated to be released in December, among the prestige pictures. Cooler heads prevailed.) Luhrmann creates a distinctive vision of early 20th century New York, but setting plays a background role in the novel, whose heart lies in the internal dramas of its damaged characters. Luhrmann’s handling of those struggles stops his movie’s momentum almost completely. After the orgiastic excess of the early party scenes, the movie lurches into storytelling mode. The pacing goes into slow-motion, the camera moves in for close-ups, and all the air goes out of the room. Lurhmann dutifully recreates the novel’s more obvious visual cues — the green light at the end of the Buchanans’ dock, the oculist’s sign overlooking the ash piles — but he doesn’t do anything with them. That’s the ninth-grade-termpaper aspect. Luhrmann and coscreenwriter Craig Pearce seem so intent on establishing a visual style, an imagined version of New York, that their reading of the novel doesn’t go beyond the major plot points and easiest symbolism. It wouldn’t be a Baz Luhrmann movie if something about it wasn’t annoyingly over-the-top. But when called upon to unpack the important thematic material, the movie stalls and never recovers. Especially compared to the bacchanal in the first act, the second hour barely moves. By the time it reaches the ending (so devastating on the page) it is hard to retain any investment in the characters or their struggles. Despite strong performances by a talented cast (especially Joel Edgerton as Tom Buchanan) the whole thing just fades out like an uninspired soap opera, with Fitzgerald’s beautiful closing lines inelegantly overlaid on screen. PG13. 142m. — John J. Bennett

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS. Four years ago (wow, really?) hotshot writer/director/producer J.J. Abrams breathed new life into this weary franchise by using an “alternate-universe” twist to (mind-) meld new storylines and actors with our favorite characters — Kirk, Spock, Bones, et al. In 2015 Abrams will take the helm of Star Wars: Episode VII, but this week he’s back to explore strange new worlds in Gene Roddenberry’s universe. PG13. 132m.

Much Ado about Nothing By Barry Evans


hy is there something rather than nothing? That question — pioneering psychologist William James dubbed it “the darkest in all philosophy” — feels to me a bit like “what’s north of the North Pole?” It’s a trick question because of its insinuation that an explanation is called for because “nothing” is normal and “something” demands a justification. But why? The usual answer is that nothing is more symmetrical and less arbitrary, in a word simpler, than any something you can come up with. But from a gambler’s point of view, nothing’s very simplicity would make is less likely, not more! There are many, many ways of being something (worlds with the consistency of toothpaste, humans who age in reverse, a universe composed entirely of tequila …), but only one way of being nothing. So in a cosmic lottery, it’s highly unlikely you’d end up with nothing. The odds vastly favor something. Q.E.D. Not convinced? (Me either.) OK, how’s this: Maybe there once was nothing, but it became something at the moment of the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago (see Field Notes 7/5/2012). That’s the nutty idea advanced in last year’s baitand-switch bestseller by cosmologist Lawrence Krauss, A Universe from Nothing. His nothing is a quantum vacuum (got that?), bustling with quantum fluctuations, not to mention a boatload of laws to support such goings-on. Sounds to me more like Second Street on an Arts Alive Saturday night than nothing. Indeed, the very phrase “Big Bang” underlines the absurdity of a pre-existing nothing. The late British astronomer Fred Hoyle, who sarcastically invented the phrase over 60 years ago in a BBC interview, thought

the whole something-from-nothing idea “rather undignified, like a party girl jumping out of a cake.” Yet this universe ex nihilo, out of nothing, is what passes these days for sublime cosmological thinking. For instance, Alexander Vilenkin, director of the Tufts University Institute of Cosmology, invites us to picture a bubble forming in a glass of champagne — then to subtract the champagne. In this view, nothing doesn’t stand a chance; it’s unstable, it has to give way to something. Four hundred years ago, the Flemish chemist Jan Baptist van Helmont claimed that mice would be created naturally and spontaneously if you left a scrap of dirty cloth with a few grains of wheat for 21 days in the corner of your room. He was following a long tradition of “spontaneous generation” from Aristotle on down, suggesting that living organisms spontaneously spawned themselves, absent descent from similar organisms: Fleas came from dust, maggots from rotting meat. Seems to me, the current crop of “universe from nothing” proposals have murky parallels with these long-discredited “life from nothing” theories. You don’t have to be a cosmologist, physicist or anything-ist to see the inherent problem in all of this giddy “spontaneous universe” speculation: Any theory of how the universe came into being has to include the theory itself — which has to include itself, ad infinitum. And once you get into infinite regression, you don’t have a theory. You have dust in the wind. l Barry Evans ( never quite got over the childhood experience of seeing his multiple selves disappear into infinity in a pair of fairground mirrors.
