We’re Chagrined Editor: Hey, McGuinty! I just read your column in today’s Journal (“Hooters and Computers,” May 15), and I am writing about the letter from “Frustrated,” who was bothered by a co-worker’s faulty punctuation and wondered what to do about it. I thought your answer made some good points. But, because the issue was language and the impression it can make, I am writing to you, and I want to say this: You don’t leave copies laying around the office. You leave copies lying around the office. Sarah G Edwards, Arcata
Judy’s Right Editor: Judy Hodgson hit the nail on the head in last week’s column (“The Supes: A Retrospective,” May 22) suggesting the incumbent supervisors’ sudden change of heart is motivated by having challengers in the June 3 election. I contend that that is exactly why Virginia Bass was so eager to “facilitate” Kevin McKenny’s finally accepting the offer from Danco to develop the Downtowner Motel as senior housing, something they’ve long sought to do. The area that our county government has the most influence in is land use, and one of the greatest powers of a supervisor is appointments to the planning commission. The purpose of the commission is regulating land use in the community’s interest, where and how developers build so, for example, they can’t build a slaughter house next door to your home. Some areas may be zoned residential only or some single family only, which would not allow for apartments. In this way the government designates how communities and neighborhoods evolve, rather than leaving it up to the developers deciding based on profitability alone. Our current board has stacked the planning commission with the very developers it’s meant to regulate. That is, it has put the proverbial foxes in charge of the hen house. The most egregious example is the nomination of Lee Ulansey (founder of HumCPR) and then the appointment of Kevin McKenny, both by 4th District Supervisor Virginia Bass. McKenny has owned the blighted Downtowner Motel for years, promoting further decay of downtown Eureka. Now, two weeks before the election Supervisor Bass is asking us to credit her with putting together a deal for McKenny and a developer who claims he’ll get it fixed right up! Asking for credit here reminds me of the

neighbor who, having set your barn on fire, is asking to be thanked for lending you her hose to put it out. Richard W. Salzman, Arcata
Last Minute Endorsements Editor: This campaign for 4th District supervisor is not about who is nicer but about who will truly support and build on the gifts of Humboldt County, bringing everyone to the table rather than just those with the most money or the loudest voice. Chris Kerrigan is about the next generation, which must be brought into the fold because the way we have always done things is not working. He is a new breed of politician who takes the risk of honesty, doesn’t take special interest money and asks the working people to come out and be heard. We need to encourage and support this young man who will give it all because he knows we must act now
Dreams are like this Our ornithology teacher is looking for a burrowing owl on a rocky ridge near Clam Beach. He scrambles up the wash of stones and scans the crevices between the boulders, searching for a flutter of feathers. Nothing. Mist dims the view. Rain begins to fall. Still no sign of the burrowing owl, save for a few pellets scattered across the slope. With heavy hearts, the class begins to walk back to the bus. I stay standing in the rain, binoculars pressed to my eyes. I know you’re out there somewhere, and someday, I will find you. — Amy Fontaine
and not later to save this unique and beautiful place we call home with sustainable jobs, care for our incredible environment and investment in our young people. Carolyn Ayres, Eureka Editor: The county needs someone like Chris Kerrigan on the board of supervisors to represent the general public. Virginia Bass accepted huge campaign contributions from developers, land speculators and related interests, then worked to scrap the general plan. Part of this involved installing these same people on the county planning commission. This is a big conflict of interest. It is also a slap to the many citizens who put in so many hours of work over the years into the general plan. Kerrigan has the necessary experience with eight years on the Eureka City Council and would be a much better bet to be responsive to the needs of a wider range of people in Humboldt County. Charles Minton, Bayside Editor: Chris Kerrigan deserves our votes for supervisor. All elections are values elections, and elections have consequences. One consequence is that we have to accept not only the candidate but his or her appointees. Chris Kerrigan advocates responsible development in areas with existing services. His appointees will, too. His opponent demonstrates her values by her longterm promotion of the founder of HumCPR for appointment to city and county planning commissions. HumCPR’s goal of removing constraints on rural development is well known. Converting resource land to residential amounts to climate change denial. Residences sprawling into increasing dry rural areas endanger lives and raise the cost of fire suppression. We cannot afford office holders whose values and funders require denial of climate change. Elections are about values, and they have consequences. I’m voting for the future. I’m voting for my grandchildren. I’m voting for Chris Kerrigan. I hope you will, too. Bob Service, Eureka Editor: Chris Kerrigan! Best candidate for 4th District supervisor. A city councilmember of eight years, he has energy, optimism, inspiring and thought-provoking civic ability and good judgment. Vote Chris! I remember when a liquid natural gas facility was proposed for Humboldt and many people were concerned. Chris was instrumental in organizing a special meeting which was well attended. Both sides were heard and we all benefited. I still appreciate the
Comment of the Week “I’m a little disappointed that the article didn’t suggest that students may prefer to take trim jobs because it’s temporary, you can do the work in one or two days, there’s no background check/application/waiting for an interview involved, and no long-term commitment. There’s more freedom with a schedule and you can be hooked up with a trim job last minute.” — “SilverSkies,” talking about last week’s Week in Weed that discussed student involvement in the marijuana industry.
opportunity that Chris helped to give to the citizenry to participate in a discussion on such an important and divisive issue. I was once presented with an issue involving a child. Chris set up a meeting with the city attorney and the situation was solved quickly. I’m impressed and grateful for his outstanding caring and involvement with real people’s issues and concerns. Vote Kerrigan! Ellen Bryant, Eureka Editor: Eureka and Humboldt County in general have been on the decline for many years. Local small businesses are going out of business at an alarming rate. Storefronts remain empty year after year. More and more buildings are becoming blight within our communities. Many of our streets are unsafe for both drivers and pedestrians, with little being done. Eureka has become a small town with big city problems. Is that what we want for ourselves and our families? The current establishment has had control for years and all we’ve seen is decline. Humboldt County used to be a beautiful, thriving, family-friendly community that was a destination spot for travelers. We can be that again. It’s time to invest in and revitalize our communities. We need people who are proactive with vision and common sense. Chris Kerrigan is and always has been that person. Randall Garrett Herzon, Eureka Editor: When I first met Chris Kerrigan in 2000, as he ran for city council, I was impressed with his vision for Eureka. He had a clear, focused vision of what a good and productive city Eureka could be. When I was elected to the city council myself, I found a council, manager and mayor (Virginia Bass) dedicated to protecting the status quo. That is, the council except for Chris Kerrigan. Chris has always fought for livable, “walkable” neighborhoods, traffic calming measures, expanding air service, and housing and employment opportunities in the core areas of Eureka. He knows that our economic future is tied to our quality of life. Safe streets,
neighborhoods, and enjoyable communities attract investment and job growth. He has a sustainable economic vision for Humboldt County, which includes manufacturing as well as promoting our wonderful environmental attributes and protecting them. Vote Chris Kerrigan on June 3. Larry Glass, Eureka Editor: As a locally born and raised individual, I have never written a letter to the editor. I am writing today because I have never been so excited to vote in a local election. My grandmother met Chris when he knocked on her door during his first election for Eureka City Council. He a made a great impression on her and won her vote. If she was still alive today, I’m sure she would be proud to vote for Chris for Humboldt County supervisor. Chris Kerrigan wants growth and development to take place inside the 4th District, benefiting our economy and environment, and creating livable, walkable and safe neighborhoods. Appointments have consequences, and I want a supervisor that will support the people they represent, rather than the special interests of a few. Please join me in voting for Chris Kerrigan for Humboldt County’s next 4th District supervisor. Thank you. Billy Cook, Erueka Editor: If you want to see the future that Virginia Bass has in mind for the 4th District you need to drive by Seventh and F streets in Eureka and take a good look at the Downtowner Motel. This eyesore and community blight has sat that way for the past 10 years that it’s been owned by Kevin McKenny. Don’t know the name? Well, he’s the person that Virginia just put in charge of planning our community’s future as a planning commissioner. It is time to change the course and bring new leadership to the board of supervisors. Vote Chris Kerrigan to lead the 4th District. John Wynands, Dinsmore continued on next page
ELECT EY N R O T T A DISTRICT The midnight release policy is still in place. The inmate now gets to choose. It is wrong. It is not the law. It is not leadership. 6 other counties have abolished this. We can too. Allan will work to put a stop to it. Maggie Fleming's solution of allowing inmates to sleep in the jail lobby is unacceptable. “I am voting for Allan Dollison because the DA’s office desperately needs proven leadership and executive ability.” ~ Warren Tindall
The DA’s office is understaffed and over-worked. Allan
will add 8-10 more attorneys to handle the case load. “I am voting for Allan Dollison because he will find the resources to hire the best and the brightest.” ~ Bob Service As a decorated veteran, we need a Veteran's Treatment Court. They are entitled to preference under the law. Allan is the only candidate who is committed to makeing this happen. Other counties have them. It is time for Humboldt, and with Allan's leadership he will deliver. “I am voting for Allan Dollison because he understands Justice must be tempered with compassion.” ~ JoAnne Davenport

continued from previous page Editor: I am 88 years old and have voted for 67 years. I’ve never missed an election and I give much attention to whom I give my precious vote. Sharon Latour has all the needed qualifications for improving our way of life in our district. I’ve met her; she is a strong woman with leadership experience in the U.S. Air Force and in California communities. We need someone with the dynamic, friendly personality she projects. Sharon will never shirk her duty as an elected supervisor in the 5th District. She not only has ideas for changes in our district, but constantly asks those she speaks with what they would like to see improved. McKinleyville is growing rapidly and needs a strong supervisor to guide it in the way we citizens want to see it improve. I know that Sharon Latour is the person who will excel in this job. Bette Boyd, McKinleyville Editor: Humboldt County’s next district attorney will be the woman who will set the agenda for the county’s prosecution of alleged criminal acts, and will have discretion over the county’s civil legal authority.
Maggie Fleming is competent and experienced. She is a dedicated public servant. But I will be voting for Elan Firpo for district attorney. Elan is the candidate with both business management experience and recent, post-budget-realignment, hands-on legal experience; she is currently serving as deputy DA. I am a Paul Gallegos supporter. I share his opinion that Elan Firpo should be our new district attorney. Paul’s high level of idealism has served Humboldt County well. His acknowledged weakness is in the realm of organizational management. Elan’s many years of successful international business management will remedy the organizational and under-funding problems in the DA’s office. Please join me in voting for Elan Firpo for district attorney on June 3. Jim Lamport, Garberville Editor: Don’t let the DA’s office slip back to the Terry Farmer “good ole boy” network. Maggie Fleming was his deputy DA and is now supported by the same moneyed interests. DA is a fulltime job, but Maggie already quit her part-time DA job for more money and fewer hours. More concerning is that at county counsel, Maggie tried to avoid full disclosure on $3.5 million in legal fees for suing Southern Humboldt landowners. Maggie lost the transparency lawsuit to HumCPR.
The county had to pay legal fees. Thus, Maggie stands for more publicly funded “witch hunts” of upstanding citizens and lack of transparency. Rural Humboldt beware! I support Elan Firpo. Her commitment to civil liberties and transparency is heartfelt sincere, instead of lip service. Only Firpo is an experienced manager of personnel, budgets and priorities. She will keep Humboldt safe by pursuing repeat offenders. Vote Firpo for DA on June 3. Chris Weston, Phillipsville Editor: People need to ask the right question in the DA’s race. The DA is top cop, chief law enforcement officer in the county. One candidate is the choice of the sheriff and deputies. Having them choose their chief is like having the army decide who should be president. It undermines civilian authority and trust that law enforcement so badly needs to do its job well. Elan Firpo grew up in a law enforcement family, with both her dad and grandpa career CHP officers. So, she’s very familiar with the needs of law enforcement and, not surprisingly, has a stellar record working with them as a deputy district attorney. But Firpo, a libertarian, knows how to draw the line and act independently for us, too. We don’t need law enforcement unions telling us who should be DA. We need someone who will be district attorney of all Humboldt: Elan Firpo. Michael Evenson, Petrolia
Editor: Campaigns are tough. Getting elected is tougher. Staying with challenging situations is the toughest. Elan Firpo has taken on a difficult challenge at a difficult time because she cares deeply about our community. Elan Firpo was raised by a family of law enforcers and earned her law degree so that she could be a district attorney. She has articulated substantial plans to go after those with the most insidious intent: drug cartels, violent criminals and people who cause human and environmental damage. As an engineer, she managed hundreds of employees. She knows how to direct financial resources and teams toward successful outcomes. This campaign has demonstrated that Elan Firpo is relentless in her mission to fight for what is right while at the same time prosecuting Humboldt’s worst criminals. As former Humboldt County supervisors, we are supporting Elan Firpo because she is fiercely dedicated to her values, beliefs and the safety of our community. Julie Fulkerson and John Woolley

“SUPER TACO,” PAINTING BY RYAN SPAULDING
here is a painting that hangs in my living room of three musicians. My husband bought it from a local painter. That painting bothers me a little. That’s because the musicians are black and the artist is white. And we are white. Should that bother me? Clearly the artist appreciated musicians, as we do. I thought about that painting when I attended a forum a few weeks ago at Humboldt State University over a different piece of art called “Super Taco.” It is a large painting of four middleaged Latino workers in the kitchen of a fast food restaurant. The university hung it in the student cafeteria. That’s when the trouble began. Many Latino students staff the cafeteria. Some of them, and some other Latino students who ate at the cafeteria, saw the painting as this message from the university to them: This is the most we expect you will achieve. That was not the message artist Ryan Spaulding intended when he painted it. Spaulding was an HSU art student in 2013 when the painting won a juried art competition. As the university does each year, it bought the painting using a special President’s Purchase Award for that purpose. The university had purchased a piece of student art each year since 1988. Spaulding painted the kitchen workers from a photograph he had taken when visiting a fast food place, one very much like the fast food places he had worked. His idea, according to the art department, was to
paint people who are largely invisible in our society. He meant it as a tribute to the hard workers of the world. Spaulding is white. The university responded to the protests over the painting by moving it to the library, where it hung on a wall around the corner from a row of paintings of white university presidents in suits. The juxtaposition only reinforced the message: White men become presidents, Latino students become low-paid workers. Feelings about the painting were so strong that a forum to discuss it had to be moved because the room, which seats about 90, was too small. People couldn’t get in. I came out of the forum with a newfound realization of how widely a message can be interpreted. I was prepared to argue First Amendment — that to take down the painting was a violation of our free speech principles. But from the outset I found the First Amendment itself was up for interpretation. One student argued that we needed to dismiss First Amendment concerns because those in power used it to silence minority voices. The discussion moved on before anyone could respond — historically, at least, the First Amendment is the strongest protection minority voices have from suppression by those in power. One woman said that we shouldn’t look at this painting the same way we would one by the artist Diego Rivera. Again, the discussion moved on before anyone could point out that Rivera had
left the United States after Nelson Rockefeller destroyed a mural of his before it was completed, because Rivera had painted in it Vladimir Lenin and a worker’s May Day parade. But one student pointed out that the First Amendment didn’t apply in this case. No one had asked for the destruction of the painting or the money back from the painter. The issue, this student said, was who gets to decide what art gets hung up on the university’s walls. If it were your living room, she asked, could the government come in and force you to hang a painting you did not like on your wall? The First Amendment was written to stop the government from prohibiting speech, not for protecting government-sponsored speech. So the issue boiled down to this: Whose university is it? If the president’s office is the government and the students are the residents, should the government be able to dictate the art on the walls? Maybe the lesson the university should have taken from the forum — had President Rollin Richmond or Provost Bob Snyder attended it — was this: Maybe we should have a student art council to advise on art purchases and placements. Maybe the real issue was that Spaulding’s painting stood out not because it was the only painting in the cafeteria, but because it was one of very few paintings on campus that featured Latino people in them. If the university, which has a rapidly increasing Latino student population, had Latino-themed paintings hung throughout campus, perhaps this one painting wouldn’t have attracted so much hostility. But maybe the painting did what it was supposed to do. It made people consider the image of hardworking people in low
wage jobs and many found it disturbing. Art is not meant to be pleasant. If you want pleasant, you hang up a Thomas Kincaid. Art should provoke thought and pleasant does not do that. So do I ask that the painting in my living room be taken down, even though I wasn’t part of the decision to buy it or hang it there? It forces me to think about things I don’t necessarily want to think about; when a white person paints black people, is it appreciation and respect or exploitation? If I appreciate the painting for its beauty do I endorse that exploitation? Last year, we took our 7-year-old daughter to a ballet in San Francisco about the dancer and choreographer Vaslav Njinsky, which had themes of eroticism and homosexuality and was difficult to understand. The tickets came as part of a package with Cinderella. Afterwards I asked her to describe the ballet. She said: “That was art.” She knows that when she sees something someone created that she doesn’t understand, it’s probably art. And she has learned to appreciate it for the artist’s brave attempt to create something important, even though audiences might not like it. Ryan Spaulding painted a picture of people largely invisible in our society. And in doing so, he made us focus on how much we depend on a group of people to serve us food for wages too low for them to feed their own families. And that is not a pretty picture.

t was just two years ago that the local biology community stood in stunned disbelief as news spread that Mad River Biologists and its founder, Ron LeValley, were under investigation for embezzling almost $1 million from the Yurok Tribe. This wasn’t some backwoods outfit or a fringe biologist with a shady reputation. This was Ron LeValley, a man who, over decades on the North Coast, had developed environmental credentials that could stand with the best of them. Mad River Biologists, his Eureka-based consulting firm, had risen to the top of the profession over 30 years. When the state began the controversial process of implementing the Marine Life Protection Act, LeValley was selected as co-chair of one of the scientific advisory teams. LeValley also started a nonprofit, MRB Research, that was regularly awarded grants from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to conduct research on Western Snowy Plover populations, and he served on the boards of several others. From the outside, LeValley’s private life seemed in lockstep with his public persona as one of the North Coast’s standout biologists. He began bird watching in Humboldt County during a 12-week stopover when he served in the U.S. Coast Guard in 1970. He never stopped, ultimately joining the county’s exclusive 400 Club, a designation reserved for those enthusiasts who have recorded 400 or more species in the field. LeValley seemed to relish in sharing with others, sending out a daily birding picture dubbed “Outside My Window”
from his wildlife photography website, which boasted more than 90,000 images, and creating an audio cassette of bird calls for the amateur enthusiast. He even volunteered some weekends to lead trips for the Mendocino Coast Audubon Society. When fellow biologists spoke of LeValley, a graduate of Humboldt State University’s master’s program in biology, they used terms like “mentor,” “beyond reproach” and “exemplary.” So, when news of the investigation and LeValley’s subsequent arrest hit headlines, there was an air of disbelief. “There is no way that this is even possible,” C.J. Ralph, a research scientist with the U.S. Forest Service, told the TimesStandard in the days following LeValley’s arrest, echoing the sentiments of many. “With all the work they have done over many years — and Mad River Biologists has set a very high standard for intellectual and financial integrity — I have no doubt that when this finishes up, they will be found not to have done anything wrong.” Well, the whole thing is now finished up, and LeValley has admitted to doing plenty wrong, including setting in motion a scheme that saw Mad River Biologists submit dozens of fake invoices billing the Yurok Tribe for survey work it had never done. When checks would come back from the tribe, Mad River Biologists would take 20 percent off the top before routing the rest of the money back to then Yurok Tribe Forestry Director Roland Raymond. The survey work LeValley claimed his company performed was primarily supposed to be looking for habitats for the northern spot-
ted owl in order to determine what tribal properties could be logged without harming the federally endangered birds’ nesting habitats. It remains unclear whether Raymond and LeValley’s conspiracy affected timber harvest plans or led to the destruction of potential owl habitats. In a letter submitted to a federal court after LeValley followed Raymond’s lead and pleaded guilty to a single federal count of conspiring to embezzle from an Indian tribal organization, LeValley addresses his conduct publicly for the first time since his arrest. “I accept full responsibility for the offense that I committed,” LeValley writes. “I agreed to allow the false invoices from Mad River Biologists to be submitted to the Yurok Tribe for work that we did not do. I then gave most of the money paid to MRB by the tribe back to Roland Raymond, although I kept some of the money and used it for MRB’s operations.” In a memorandum to the court from the federal government arguing that LeValley should serve a year in federal prison, we learned that some of that money kept for “MRB’s operations” went to pay LeValley more than $55,000 in 2009 and 2010, and to finance the re-roofing of an employee’s home. LeValley writes that he was lured into the conspiracy by Raymond, who LeValley says told him the pilfered funds would be used to pay forestry and fire crews to the ultimate benefit of the tribe and its members. (According to court documents, Raymond used all the funds he received back from LeValley’s company to support his gambling and drug addictions.) “I was shocked when I found out the truth about where the money went and that the fire crews that were supposedly getting paid by this scheme did not exist,” LeValley wrote. But the feds make plain in their memorandum that LeValley can’t play the innocent victim card, noting that it cannot be said he was “entirely naïve, or duped, regarding the significance of the arrangement.” The U.S. Attorney’s Office notes that investigators found numerous e-mails between LeValley and Raymond in which LeValley expresses concern about their arrangement coming to light. The memorandum also details how LeValley ignored a kind of intervention staged by his staff. “The evidence shows that in 2009, certain MRB employees were concerned about illegality when they realized the tribal money was moving through MRB with no corresponding work being done,” the memorandum states. “They felt strongly enough about it that they convened an in-person meeting with LeValley, who had moved away to Mendocino. At
that meeting, the employees questioned the legitimacy of the false invoicing and encouraged LeValley to end the practice. … LeValley chose otherwise and continued the scheme through 2010 over his employees’ objections.” In the next year in which LeValley continued the relationship with Raymond they embezzled another $500,000, according to the memorandum. On May 20, a judge put the case to rest, sentencing LeValley to serve 10 months in a still-to-be-determined minimum security federal prison — less than a third of Raymond’s three-year sentence —and ordering him to join Raymond in repaying more than $850,000 to the Yurok Tribe. Tribal Chairman Thomas O’Rourke voiced outrage at the sentence, calling it a “slap on the wrist” and dubbing LeValley “a crook.” In some circles, this view of LeValley the “crook” has served to either create or reinforce doubts about the science underlying his work, whether it was charting out MLPA protection zones, staking out nesting grounds for the snowy plovers or working to protect Marbled Murrelets. After all, the thinking goes, if he forged invoices, who knows what other work Mad River Biologists simply may have not performed? In his letter to the court, LeValley notes that his “reputation has been ruined.” But — while one can imagine a crime like this rendering LeValley an outcast from the biology community — that doesn’t seem to be the case. When the Pacific Seabird Group — a nonprofit group dedicated to monitoring and conserving sea bird populations — held its annual meeting in Juneau, Alaska in February, LeValley not only attended (after receiving a grant from the court allowing him to leave the state while his sentencing was pending) but presented a paper on pelagic cormorants. Of the 80 or so letters that flooded the court on LeValley’s behalf, more than a handful came from colleagues who raved about his scientific knowledge, generosity and moral fiber. In the last two years, an image has emerged of LeValley as a birder and environmentalist who knowingly and systematically circumvented federal and tribal governments by pretending to do surveys designed to protect a federally endangered species, at least in part, to line his own pockets. Then there’s the image of LeValley the environmental scientist, lover and protector, engrained over decades of work.

t was June 24, 2008, and lightning fires were raging in the southern Humboldt hills. Then came 450 law enforcement agents — federal, state and local — in some 200 vehicles busting onto the smoky scene. You remember Operation Southern Sweep, right? No? Well, a brief recap: The officers weren’t there to help douse the fires. They were there for Buddha — Robert “Buddha” Juan — and his band of homesteaders who’d bought shares in his Lost Paradise Land Corp. and begun building roads, plunking down structures and, in many cases, planting pot gardens in the gated subdivision called Buddhaville on some 2,000 rugged acres of former timberland straddling Humboldt and Mendocino counties. For two years agents from the California Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the IRS, the U.S. Postal Service and other entities had been investigating what they thought to be an illicit, large-scale pot growing and distribution business led by Juan. The personnel-intensive sweep, which included a few houses in other local communities, yielded what locals considered a piddling amount of pot (around 10,000 plants) cash ($160,000) and firearms (30). Of the 40-some residents of Buddhaville, 10 were federally charged with growing a bit of pot, and received generally light sentences. Juan got five years in the pen for growing and for buying the land with a money order from the U.S. Postal Service. But what happened to the land? It’s come almost full circle, in a sense. After the sweep, the feds seized it through forfeiture. The booted-off homesteaders lost, collectively, as much as $1 million in down payments, monthly rents and work they’d put into the land, Juan told the Los Angeles Times in 2011. After a few years, the previous owners of these properties — Bob Barnum Sr. and the Mendes family — to whom Juan still owed money, were given back their respective parcels. About two years ago, the Sanctuary Forest Land Trust convinced New Island Capital, a San Francisco “green investment” firm, to form a company called Lost Coast Forestlands LLC to go in and buy up former timberlands in the Mattole and South Fork Eel watersheds.
The land trust would then seek a grant to pay the new landowner for conservation easements. The idea, says Noah Levy, the land trust’s lands program director, was to make it possible for these lands to remain timberlands (with strict conservation restrictions), at a time when timber had become less lucrative than development. Lost Coast Forestlands’ purchases included nearly 1,700 acres of the former Buddhaville. And last week, the California Wildlife Conservation Board voted to allocate $3.2 million to purchase easements from Lost Coast Forestlands LLC, which include the Buddhaville property and others embracing the headwaters of Indian Creek, a major tributary to the coho salmon-vital South Fork Eel River, and the Mattole River. The trust found the Buddhaville development “really worrisome,” says Levy, and had tried to buy the property or an easement from Juan long before it was raided. “It was unpermitted development, often temporary development,” he says. “There were people living in trailers, often, and there were [50 or more] sites developed for outdoor marijuana. They were diverting fair amounts of water from those creeks, and from springs that feed those creeks. They were driving back and forth on poorly constructed roads, sometimes right in creeks. There was a risk of much worse things than dirt washing into the creeks, though to our great relief we found close to zero evidence of any toxic or harmful substances having been spilled and no evidence whatsoever of rodenticide or of indoor grows using diesel indoor lights.” Much of the land’s been cleaned up, some by Barnum, who fixed roads and removed some of the “huge trash piles, broken greenhouses, degraded cheap cabins and trailers,” says Levy. The easement requires the new landowner to harvest incrementally over a 30-year time frame, widens buffers around creeks and other water sources and protects some mature stands and the few remaining old-growth. The landowner’s resident caretaker, and the land trust, will keep an eye on things. And the trees will grow and, the hope is, the land will recover. l

Klamath in Congress
Legislation introduced May 21 by California and Oregon senators would turn a trio of Klamath Basin restoration and water-use agreements into law — after many, many, many years of hair-tearing and deliberations among a broad array of Klamath river users including tribes, ranchers, fishermen and more. The Upper Klamath Basin Comprehensive Agreement, the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement and Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement together would settle water rights disputes, balance water uses and authorize removal of four dams on the Klamath, among other things. They need Congressional approval to move forward, and California senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer and Oregon senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley have given it that push, according to their joint news release. In a press release, North Coast Congressman Jared Huffman lauded the legislation’s introduction as a “milestone” in a “historic effort” that “provides a framework for ending decades of conflict through the biggest dam removal project in the United States and an ambitious restoration and water allocation program.” The bill now goes to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee for review. — Heidi Walters l BUSINESS

and, we like to imagine, included lotsa tears in beers. On the phone from Paul’s Eureka location, owner Paul Amato shared this news, and more. He said his landlords, Dave and Dana Figueiredo, sold to CVS the building that houses both the McKinleyville Paul’s Live from N.Y. pizzeria and Figueiredo’s Video Movies, and gave Amato a 30-day notice (Amato says his lease is up June 1). If the sale news is true, CVS likely will put in a new pharmacy there (see our previous coverage of CVS’s purchase of the McKinleyville Lima’s Pharmacy). Dana Figueiredo declined to comment when we reached her by phone, and CVS said it has nothing to announce presently. Amato says he’s relocating all of the equipment from the McKinleyville restaurant to the former Porter Street Barbecue site on Samoa Boulevard in Arcata, where he plans to open a new pizzaria within the next four to five months. — Heidi Walters l MEDICAL
Care Home Shut Down, Owner Suspended
Cash Flows into Supes Races
The state has shut down Chamberlain’s Residential Care Facility for the elderly, at 3252 Lucia Road in Eureka, and suspended the license of the home’s operator, Gina Chamberlain, accusing her of numerous health and safety code violations, including taking a client’s prescription narcotics for her own use. The state’s “order of temporary suspension of license” was issued May 5, and the five residents of the six-client capacity home were relocated to other facilities before the home’s shutdown on May 8, says Michael Weston, spokesman for the Community Care Licensing Division of the state’s Department of Social Services.
STAY CONNECTED www. northcoastjournal.com/blogjammin
In its complaint requesting the suspension of Chamberlain’s license to operate, the state alleges that Chamberlain not only took a client’s drugs for her own use, but also told a client’s nurse practitioner that the client was taking prescribed hydrocodone “several times a day for weeks” even though the client wasn’t; locked a client in a bedroom and blocked the door with a baby gate; failed to give a client medication properly; overcharged two clients, a husband and wife, by $13,100; cashed $52,400 worth of checks from a client’s checking account; and took a client’s car and Rolex watch. The complaint requests that Chamberlain be prohibited “for the remainder of [her] life” from having anything to do with a state-licensed care facility. Chamberlain has the right to appeal the suspension before an administrative law judge, says Weston. The Journal’s attempts to reach Chamberlain were unsuccessful. — Heidi Walters l POLITICS The last batch of campaign finance report statements came in May 22 to the Humboldt County Elections Office, with the county’s four supervisorial candidates reporting raising a total of more than $108,000 in the filing period, which ran March 18 through May 17. That means an average of about $1,800 poured into local supes campaigns daily during the 60-day filing period, with incumbent 5th District Supervisor Ryan Sundberg leading the cash race, reporting donations totaling more than $41,000. If there was a surprise in the reporting period, it would have to be that 4th District challenger Chris Kerrigan outraised incumbent Virginia Bass for the period by

more than $6,000. Kerrigan, who has made repeated mention on the campaign trail of being up against “big money” in the election, still trails Bass in year-to-date contributions (Bass reports having raised $42,863 to Kerrigan’s $39,744) and yearto-date expenditures, with Bass having shelled out $81,439 on the 2014 campaign trail to Kerrigan’s $35,921.

‘Bye, Folks!’ Humboldt’s king of TV commercials rides into the sunset. Can he be replaced?
By Grant Scott-Goforth
orky Cornwell, the boisterous, extroverted cellular phone hawker you know from decades of television advertisements, is retiring. Go ahead — let out a sigh. That might be a sigh of relief for one less brazen TV commercial, or a sigh of lament for the loss of one of the county’s most recognizable faces, a symbol of independence and commerce. Corky wormed his way into the hearts and minds of the North Coast with a calculated torrent of commercials with loud volumes and louder visuals. The rosy faced ex-timber man drove many people up the walls with his advertising regimen — including, at times, the national chain whose services he sold. But there was a certain charm to Corky’s willingness to be goofy, bizarre and outright obnoxious, not to mention his own acknowledgement that the commercials helped build a thriving business serving more than 12,000 customers. What is it about local TV commercials? They’re instantly recognizable — our media-trained eyes are attuned to the subtle visual differences between the images produced by a moneyed national ad company and those of a small local filmmaker. They are high concept, often matched in equal measure by low production values. Gaudy graphics? Usually. Discomfort in front of the camera? That, or an abundance of hamminess. Often they’re hastily written, shot in a dimly lit store and edited within hours of air time. And it shows. There’s something innately American about locally produced commercials. The make-something-of-yourself, I-did-itmy-way, big-fish-in-a-small-pond, damn-it-all glory of TV-era capitalism. The commercials are glorious, they’re changing, and, in some ways, they’re improving.

of and behind the camera — writing, filming, lighting, editing, acting — while putting out content that people see and recognize. Not only must commercial producers sell themselves to ad-curious businesses, they must sell that business’ products or services to the world. That means a certain understanding of the area and the people who populate it. Malcolm DeSoto can often be seen in Old Town Eureka with a crisp haircut and a camera tripod over his shoulder or a camera bag in his hands. He’s been producing commercials for six or seven years, mostly here on the North Coast. It’s pretty much a one-man job, he says, though he’ll enlist physical help when he’s actually shooting
a commercial. Writing, editing, special effects — that’s his wheelhouse. “For the most part it’s pretty solitary,” he says. Business was scarce when DeSoto first started — he even produced commercials for free for a while in order to build a client base. But now he has steady work, and commercials are his “bread and butter.” “I have a base set of clients that I do a lot of work for,” he says. “TV stations, other businesses, the film commission. I don’t have to do too much soliciting nowadays.” In larger markets, videographers get tapped to shoot music videos, indie films and other projects. Those kinds of opportunities are rare up here, meaning many producers turn to commercials or day jobs to make ends meet. DeSoto was hired to edit Eureka resident Maria Matteoli’s film The Wine of Summer, but his day-to-day work is largely local commercials. DeSoto’s clients range from casinos to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, and the tone of his work ranges from “really cheesy” to “serious and somber,” he says. Small companies rely heavily on his creativity, he says, while larger companies that have their own marketing departcontinued on next page

ments dictate the content and message of commercials. DeSoto says he typically charges between $1,000 and $2,000 to produce a 30-second TV spot — though he said that can vary greatly. Commercials produced by TV stations typically cost $375 to $500 — depending on the sophistication. DeSoto says he’s not interested in being a marketing expert. “Really, what I love is making things,” he says. “As far as demographics, airtime buys — that’s boring to me. I stick to production.” Montel Vanderhorck, a filmmaker, commercial producer and associate professor of digital media at College of the Redwoods, says the modern media landscape is changing the video advertising model, if only slightly. While the headache-inducing repetitiveness of the jingle/slogan/bombast type of commercial will never really go away, some businesses are turning toward more timeless and professional advertising that looks, well, less like advertising. Businesses want ads that won’t look dated in a few years, that can be shared online and that tell a story about the product, Vanderhorck says. There’s no 30-second time limit for online ads, no costs to post them on Facebook and company websites, where the hope is they will go viral. Look, for example, at the Humboldt Made ads produced by a variety of locals over the last several years. They live online and can easily be shared with prospective clients, distributors and customers at conventions or through social media.
Vanderhorck produces commercials occasionally, he says, but other full-time work keeps him occupied. He hears about gigs word-of-mouth, typically, and takes on the projects when he can give attention to detail. “It’s more of a way for us to support our filmmaking habit,” he says, “to pay for our own projects.” Most small businesses, Vanderhorck RICK ST.

mated, hopping out of his chair to point out framed articles about his business and to explain the “tape measure trick” that convinced him to retire — again. Stretched out to 80 inches, Cornwell says that last 8 inches — he’s 72 years old — looks awfully small compared to all the inches that came before. He waxes political (“Uncle Sam’s got a pretty good hunk of [my money]”), laments the county’s embrace of environmentalism and its effect on the timber industry (“I still don’t like the spotted owls”), and boasts charmingly about his grandkids and pets (“We’re kitty people”). He’s retiring to focus on his family, travel in his new 40-foot RV, and — he hints — because things stopped being so cheery with U.S. Cellular. Cornwell built a small empire over 20 years as a U.S. Cellular agent, at one time commanding six stores and 12,283 customers (a number he rattles off from memory). He’s selling the business to another U.S. Cellular agent based out of Ukiah — a personal friend, he says. He won’t divulge the selling price, but not because he’s shy. “I would if I could — but I can’t,” he says. He’s happy to point out that he’ll never have to worry about money. Cornwell began running zany commercials shortly after he started Redwood Coast Cellular, starting out as an Uncle Sam character (“I want YOU to have a cell phone”) and later inhabiting whatever historical era or fictional universe appealed to him at the time. His favorite? The mad scientist commercial. You can tell from the photos in his office alone that Cornwell’s a nostal-
gist. He says he’s kept all of his costumes and props from 20 years of commercials — and he’s close to needing a third storage unit. Cornwell hired a video production company early on but quickly realized he could produce the videos himself — saving money. “I wrote all those commercials,” he says. “So I take full blame for that.” He credits the commercials for much of the success of Redwood Coast Cellular. By focusing on marketing himself, rather than the company or its parent company, U.S. Cellular, Cornwell says he became a recognizable icon that drew people into his stores. At one point, Cornwell, beaming in a pink button-up shirt, stands up and points to an empty spot over the doorway to his office. That, he says, is where he hung the framed obituary of Harvey Harper, the late owner of Harper Motors. Harper had, in the 1970s and ’80s, been infamous for his own wacky TV commercials. He wrestled alligators in the median between the north and southbound lanes of U.S. Highway 101, and became known for his willingness to be silly in the name of good business. “I’ve always looked up to Harvey,” Cornwell says. “My wish was that I could be the Harvey Harper of cellular phones. And I think I’ve come close to that.” If you watched TV between 1994 and 2014, Cornwell was inescapable. But along the way, Cornwell’s relationship with U.S. Cellular seemed to sour. He is hesitant to talk about it, but it’s clear

continued from previous page that the commercials were a sticking point. “U.S. Cellular is a real controller of the way you handle your company,” Cornwell said. And the company didn’t like his ads. Or, at least, it wanted him to tone them down. Cornwell hired DeSoto when he was first starting his production company. “He was just kind of doing it for the fun of it,” DeSoto says. “He didn’t care if they were silly or whatever.” But U.S. Cellular did, and Cornwell asked DeSoto to add some polish to the Corky brand. “He hired me to basically try to make more professional looking ads to fit within the guidelines of their corporate branding,” DeSoto says. U.S. Cellular franchises have an advertising co-op, DeSoto said, meaning they all pitch in to have certain branding designed and produced, and it’s expected to appear in local commercials. That didn’t last long in Cornwell’s case, DeSoto says. “I think he gave up and said ‘I’ll keep doing these weird ads until they fire me.’” Cornwell says he figured out a deal
— his company would provide cell phone service to News Channel 3 in exchange for commercial productions and air time. That way he wasn’t spending pooled money on the advertising that was so near and dear to his business. “There’s ways around everything,” he says. “You just have to be smart enough to know them.” That only lasted so long. “I feel that we could have done quite well if we’d been left alone a little bit more,” Cornwell says, appearing sad for the first time that morning. “I regret that I didn’t retire a year and a half ago. There’s just so much time that I owe to my family. When U.S. Cellular started to take control three years ago it stopped being as much fun as it should be.” Still, he insists, he’s leaving the business with “hope and visions of a wonderful retirement.” That leaves room on the airwaves for the next Corky Cornwell, the third coming of Harvey Harper. Who will it be, Humboldt? ●

es Miserables, the musical now on stage at North Coast Repertory Theatre in Eureka, opened on Broadway with expensive grandeur. In his 1987 review, New York Times critic Frank Rich noted the revolving stage and the prodigious lighting and stage effects that included tilting towers and a floor that peeled back “to create the
illusion of a sprawling, multilayered Paris on the brink of upheaval.” This is the show that dazzled audiences for more than 6,000 performances and led to the sumptuous 2012 Hollywood film version.

scenes. Yet this production is impressive and effective, as its focus rests almost entirely on performing the music and the story. The story is set in the early 19th century, based on the enormous novel by Victor Hugo, who was something of a French Charles Dickens. Hugo dramatized the lives of the poor and the effects of society’s injustices. He also reached a popular audience, as Dickens did, with extreme and memorable characters, rich historical context, occasional horror and forthright sentimentality. These themes and qualities, if not all of the plot twists, are in the musical as well. The NCRT production has assembled a stellar cast. In a rare local stage appearance, Dan Stockwell exhibits a notable vocal range as Jean Valjean, the central character. Craig Benson is commanding as his antagonist, Inspector Javert. Greta Stockwell is a sympathetic Fantine, Nanette Voss-Herlihy a sparkling Cosette. As Cosette’s lover, Jordan Dobbins deftly manages his transformation from a lovestruck student to a wiser and stronger young man. Perhaps accentuated by the lack of stage artifice, the central figures don’t dominate dramatically — the secondary characters have equally important moments. As the nefarious Thénardiers, Andrea Zvaleko and Tiggerbouncer Custodio provide darkly comic shenanigans. Luke Sikora has perhaps the most operatic singing part as the revolutionary leader Enjolras, which he performs with stirring effect. Some of the most thrilling vocal moments come from Jo Kuzelka as Eponine. They are only a few members of this skilled ensemble, which includes at least a half dozen actors and singers who’ve had principal roles in other local shows. A couple of relative newcomers exhibit precocious talent and stage presence that can’t be taught: Sylvie Benson as young Cossette and Aiden Vergen as a confident, capering Gavroche. The efficiency of the production alone inspires admiration and the audience’s confidence. In three hours of almost non-stop music, the coordination between the unseen 10-piece orchestra backstage and the singers and action on stage is virtually flawless. The orchestra itself is excellent. Angela GaliotoMarquez on violin and Kira Weiss on cello, in particular, produce heightened moments as singular as any of the singers. Under the direction of Elisabeth Harrington, the other players include Jonathan Webster, Levi Walls, Yuriah Lydon, Nicholas Durant, Leon Hamilton, Rebeca Ramos, Phil Sams, Melissa Gussin
and Cody Forbes. The efficiency is also to the credit of director and stage designer Calder Johnson, and the quality of musical performance to music directors Harrington and Voss-Herlihy. With crisp diction, the singers make themselves understood. For the uninitiated, the music (by Claude-Michel Shonberg, lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer) blends classical and modern influences (Bizet, Kurt Weill) with pop. I’ve heard it described as “cheesy in a good way.” Better than most ‘80s musicals, it has striking moments, and at worst it’s transparent and inoffensive. Stage limitations do have consequences. With few specific visual cues, it akes a while to figure out where some scenes are set. Relatively colorless costuming that makes a meaningful point in the lavish, original production makes characters hard to identify from time to time in this one, especially since some actors play several roles. Without effects, it loses some dramatic power and the singing alone can’t always maintain the illusion — at times the battle scene seems more like boys playing cowboys in the backyard. The lack of visual interest might also make the show seem longer. Serious devotees of this musical may notice that a few characters seem to have been cut or combined. But perhaps this paring down returns the show to its roots. It began as a concept album and a concert presentation in France, before producer Cameron Mackintosh (Cats, Phantom of the Opera) and the Royal Shakespeare Company turned it into a London-to-Broadway extravaganza. The NCRT production brings Les Miserables back to its essence and its origins, to the singers and the music. North Coast audiences may well be pleased and proud. Rae Robison designed costumes, Telfer Reynolds the lighting, Elizabeth Holverson the make-up, Laura Rhinehart the properties. Keili Simmons Marble is assistant director, and Kira Gallaway the stage manager, with Tyler Elwell backstage. Les Miserables is performed at NCRT weekends through June 21. 442-6278, www.ncrt.net.

THE MEXICAN MOJITO. VIVA CILANTRO.

ilantro is the Adam Sandler of the herb world: You love it or you hate it. Apparently, whether it tastes like the joyful rush of summer or something you’d use to get engine oil off your hands is at least partly genetic. One hopes that, along with curing cancer, scientists will one day find a cure the cilantro-aversion-afflicted so that every man, woman and child can enjoy a steaming bowl of pho with its proper garnish.
Part of me wants to believe people who hate it can change. Maybe you weren’t born this way — maybe you just haven’t met the right dish. Have you tried changing? I’ll pray for you. Even if you haven’t drunk the green Kool-Aid, you may want to drink this. Likhi Tanski, the bartender at Gabriel’s in Eureka, took up the challenge of concocting a cilantro cocktail for us. Not such a wild idea, since some gins, like Hendrick’s, are made with the stuff. Tanski came up
with a Mexican mojito ($7). He muddled a few leaves in the bottom of the glass and filled it with ice. He kept other leaves whole and shook them with ice, some pale gold St. Germain (a fragrant elderflower liqueur that’s sweet enough to skip the usual sugar), a generous splash of Herradura Silver tequila and a squeeze of lime. Strained into the glass with a sprig of cilantro and a curl of lime zest, it tastes garden fresh and lightly sweet, like a snap pea off the vine with the zip of lime and the mild flavor of the herb. If you can still hate cilantro in this, there is no hope for you. And yet, even for those of us who want to roll around in heaps of cilantro like a dog in a leaf pile, for whom there is never quite enough room in a soft taco,
chop the leaves and stems as finely as possible. Save a sprig for garnish. Mix the softened cream cheese and sour cream in a large bowl until smooth. Add the lemon zest and juice and mix well. Finally, mix in the green onion and cilantro. Salt to taste, keeping in mind whether you’ll be dipping sweet spears of red bell pepper or salty chips. Cover and chill before serving.
sometimes that big bouquet of fluffy leaves goes unused. Recipes only call for so much of the stuff, and in a week the delicate leaves whose perfume we inhaled with rolled-back eyes at the farmers market go all black and slimy. Cilantro, Chinese parsley, coriander — whatever your name is, you deserve better. Use up the rest of the bunch, stems and all, with this simple dip. There are those who will look at the sour cream and cream cheese and wonder about subbing in Greek yogurt to make it healthier. Not a problem. If it’s nonfat, just make sure to strain off the water and dry the washed cilantro well. The dip will be runnier, but still yummy and very nice as a garnish for soup or grilled meats. ●

A cook gone wild By Linda Stansberry firstname.lastname@example.org
f you know what to look for, the world is your kitchen cabinet. Foraging in the spring can be a hungry affair compared to fall’s bounty of fruit, mushrooms and assorted edibles in full fruition. No worries — spring rains mean new growth and some tender sprouts that are only edible this time of year. Basket in hand, we head to the woods, the marsh and the side of the road. Time to take full advantage of nature’s cupboard. You’ll need some hiking shoes, a trowel, gardening shears and a pair of gloves. A plant identification book is also highly recommended, as even experienced foragers occasionally make mistakes in identifying plants. Please don’t eat anything you’re not absolutely sure of, and when you do pick a plant, do so carefully. Grabbing wildly may mean mixing in leaves of poisonous plants. In the interest of biodiversity and neighborliness, it’s best to only forage a few plants from each patch. After all, spring has sprung and we need to leave the bees some flowers to practice their lovin’ on! First up, the “eat sparingly” section. Plenty of plants are edible, but that doesn’t mean you can fill your belly with them. Wood sorrel is a good example. That’s the stuff with lovely, dark green leaves tinged with pink coating the floor of our redwood forests that everyone mistakes for clover. It has a tangy, piquant flavor and makes a nice addition to a salad or a fine garnish for a slice of strong cheese. But eat too much of it (say, more than a handful) and you’ll be high-tailing it for the nearest comfort station. Sorrel is high in vitamin C, as are the needles of some other conifers. Light
green and tender, new fir needles are great to pluck, chew and spit while hiking. They have a delightful, tart and zesty flavor that makes your mouth brim with saliva. Pine or fir needles and sorrel can also be steeped into tea — a nice alternative to those high-carbon-footprint oranges you’d buy at the grocery store. This time of year, the young shoots and leaves of stinging nettles can be harvested (gloves!) from marshy areas and boiled or steamed. Tea made from boiled nettle tops is a traditional remedy for arthritis, but you’ll want to consult your doctor first. Stinging nettles should not be eaten raw. Also in the wear-your-gloves section are thistles. Once you peel away the prickly exterior of a young, not-yet-flowering one, inside you’ll find a juicy snack, kind of like celery. If you’re in a pinch, you can also boil and eat the older stalks, although they’re rather stringy. Berries are just coming into season, with some bushes on the coast still bearing winter huckleberries. Salal, blackcaps and wild gooseberries will be along presently. But the sweetest treat of the early season is wild strawberries. About the size of your fingernail and infinitely more toothsome than their gigantic commercially produced cousins, wild strawberries are flirts that always leave you wanting more. Again, there are no belly-fillers in the world of spring foraging, but dock and miner’s lettuce can do a good job of staving off hunger pangs. Dock leaves are a staple for roadside foragers throughout North America. It’s a hardy, distinctive plant that grows well in disturbed soil. The seeds can also be ground into flour, although it’s a labor-intensive process. Miner’s lettuce (purslane) is a little more delicate, although it’s prolific in this region this time of year, and delicious. Its name is attributed to the Gold Rush miners who ate it to prevent scurvy. It can be gathered by the fistful in shady, moist spots, and every inch of it is edible from the juicy stalk to the bittersweet flower. High in vitamin C and iron, it makes an excellent salad and is also great food for baby chicks. A final word of warning: wash everything well. There’s something so holistic and right about picking something from the ground and sticking it straight into your mouth, but unless you’re picking it from just outside your door, you should probably wait. Nature’s cupboard has more than a few dogs peeing in it and uncouth louts spitting on it. Wash twice, wash well and enjoy the bounty. l

Friday #1: Americana
PHOTO COURTESY OF THE ARTIST
WHO: The Blackberry Bushes WHEN: Friday, May 29, 9 p.m. WHERE: The Logger Bar TICKETS: Free
Feeling Lucky Key words for a good time By Jennifer Savage
The next night brings another opportunity to hang out in Blue Lake’s finest drinking establishment. The Blackberry Bushes are really, really good and I’m not just saying that because they’re crashing at my house. Jes Raymond and Jakob Breitbach met in the rainy bottom of the Puget Sound, but their music channels the sweetest and most haunting aspects of American traditional. Joined by Bay Area native Julian Stocking on the upright bass, The Blackberry Bushes are playful and sophisticated virtuosos. Last time they played the Logger, the other musicians in the audience were overheard murmuring things like, “Wow.” Show starts at 9 p.m. and is 21-and-over.
Friday #2: Electronic
Wrye’s album cover is a sadly generic rendition of a video gamesque bombshell with a skull face and – what is that, a machete? – that I suppose is meant to illustrate the sexy horror potential of the music about to be unleashed. Fortunately the music is suitably danceable, especially, I imagine, if you chemically alter your consciousness beforehand. Joining Wrye at Siren’s Song for The Haunt is DAT-1, who produces minimalist and shadowy tracks with an experimental edge, perhaps best suited for listening to through heavy headphones in a dark room. The supernatural vibes start at 9 p.m. and all ages are welcome.
Saturday #1: Swing
Kenny Ray & the Mighty Rovers would like you to please enjoy some toe-tappin’ roots-honky-tonk-country-swing in a benefit for the Bayside Grange’s Kitchen Fun. If you don’t know how to swing dance – and you really should, especially if you’re of the male persuasion, because the ladies, they love to dance! – show up before 7:15 p.m. so you can get in on the lesson action. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., music starts at 8 p.m. Admission is $8 per adult, $5 per student, at the door. All ages!
Saturday (and Sunday) #2: Fest
Thursday #1: Poetry
San Francisco’s Brian Laidlaw returns to the Siren’s Song. You may remember Laidlaw from his last visit – he’s a poet who fell into the wayward musician life via creative writing courses at Stanford University. Over the years he’s acquired an MFA at the University of Minnesota and won buckets of awards and honors for his ability to put words together in a most pleasing way. The show is free, starts at 9 p.m. and is all ages.
Thursday #2: Metal
The show happening down the way at the Ink Annex is also all ages – it’s a Place-
bo gig – and that’s where the similarity ends. Think metal, metal, doom, metal.

Close your eyes and breathe deeply — can you smell the smoldering briquettes, sizzling meat and fervent competition? You’re catching a whiff of the Up in Smoke Beer and BBQ Competition (free entry, $5 for 5 taster tickets, $50 for competitors), a suds-soaked grilling contest. The contest kicks off at noon on Saturday, May 31 at the new garden at the Redwood Acres Fairgrounds. While the contestants vie to grill-up the best chicken, pork and beef ribs, you can revel in their culinary efforts. Tastings are only available for the first 200 attendees, so make sure to get there before the grills cool down. Eel River Brewery, Lagunitas, Mad River Brewing and Redwood Curtain Brewing will all be on site with tap beers to quench your thirst. KWPT will be blasting classic rock throughout the day for the grown-ups, and there’s a free kid’s area for the little ones. You can walk off your full bellies on a tour of the new garden, complete with green-thumb demonstrations. At 4 p.m., the winners will be announced, crowds will cheer and the day will wrap up. Pig out guilt-free, because all proceeds for the event benefit the Clarke Historical Museum and the Redwood Acres Friends of the Fair. You’re eating for a good cause. — Dev Richards

Giddyap! McKinleyville doesn’t slack when it comes to hoedowns. Some towns might dedicate one night to barn dancing and gallivanting, but Mack commits to a full five days of shindiggin’. Pony Express Days runs from June 4 to June 8, with events all over town. It all starts with the Chili Cook-Off in Pierson Park on Wednesday, June 6 at 5:30 p.m. The crowd judges the cooks, so be prepared to devour a lot of chili. The Pilot Rock Ramblers round out the evening with some bluegrass and country. Take the rest of the night off to digest; you’ll want to be ready for the fireman’s muster on Thursday, June 5 at 5:30 p.m. in the Ray’s Food Place parking lot. Firefighters from all over Humboldt County will compete in the bucket brigade relay and the hose coupling relay. The weekend starts early with the Farm Fest on Friday, June 6 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at A&L Feed. Stick around for the barn dance at 8 p.m. ($10). Peruse the local crafter booths for demonstrations of soap making, beekeeping and more while you sip some beer and enjoy some live music. The heart of the festival is on Saturday, June 7, with the parade down Central Avenue at 11 a.m., followed by the festival at Pierson Park from noon until 4 p.m. Spend the afternoon dancing to some live music from local bands and playing in the horseshoe tournament. You can’t have Pony Express Days without ponies, so check out the Gymkhana events that run at the Mckinleyville Rodeo Grounds on Saturday, June 7 and Sunday, June 8. Granted, they’re horses and not ponies, but you shouldn’t look a Gymkhana horse in the mouth. — Dev Richards

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. As a fledging geek dipping a toe in the ocean of comics, the X-Men were too much for me. Ditto the whole Marvel Universe, but the X-Men in particular were so many, each with his or her own convoluted origin story, all entangled in myriad plotlines across an incomprehensibly wide world. It was more than I could take in back then, and it’s getting to be more than I want to deal with now, as yet another gigantic sequel comes rumbling into the multiplex. Still, I got a lot out of 2011’s X-Men: First

Class and last year’s The Wolverine. Days opens on a bleak near-future Earth, where mutants are relentlessly hunted by unstoppable machines called sentinels. One small group of rebels stays in the fight by time traveling in the midst of battles to forewarn themselves of attack. Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart), Magneto (Ian McKellen), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), et al. catch wind of the group’s methods and track them down in a last ditch effort to save their race. They’ve traced the beginning of the mutant apocalypse to a day in 1973, when Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) assassinated the arms tycoon Dr. Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), who developed sentinel technology. Their hope is to send one of their own back in time to stop the assassination. Of course, the only one who can physically survive the journey (it’s complicated) is Wolverine, so he’s off. He seeks out a young Xavier (James McAvoy) who, having shuttered his school and abandoned his powers, seeks solace mostly in the bottoms of bottles. He reluctantly agrees to help, and they go on to liberate young Magneto (Michael Fassbender) from a top-secret government prison. (The set-piece sequence wherein they make their daring escape, aided by Peter Evans as Quicksilver is one of the movie’s highlights.) Once they’ve got the band back together, it’s off to Paris to intercept Mystique at the
Vietnamese peace accords. But of course nothing can be that simple. Although I’m not entirely convinced by director Bryan Singer as a visual stylist, or even as a storyteller, he knows how to hold together a multi-hundredmillion-dollar production. The cast is as top-loaded with prominent talent as any we’re likely to see this year. The effects are second to none, and the 1970s look and feel are executed well. But the future sequences are noisy, dark and hard to follow. Characters are thrown at us with no introduction, only to then launch in to painful expository monologues. The first act rushes from scene to scene but stills feels slow. The movie finds its footing midway through, and then it’s smooth sailing until the climax, which gets drawn out beyond its ability to sustain tension. But the lead performers give it all they’ve got, and there are enough moments when the action and the production design make Days of Future Past an enjoyable distraction. PG13. 131m. THE RAILWAY MAN. Once upon a time, we saw a lot more of these movies: period dramas about a tortured protagonist, often with a violent history. I’m not sure whether our tastes have changed, or if the entertainment business has shifted our perspective with what it offers, but this feels like it came from a long time ago. It’s 1980. Eric Lomax (Colin Firth), railroad enthusiast, meets Patti (Nicole Kidman) on a train, naturally. They fall in love and get married, but there is darkness in Eric that he refuses to discuss. He has night terrors, can’t pay his bills and reacts with violence in inappropriate situations. Patti seeks out Eric’s friend Finlay (Stellan Skarsgard) for insight, but he won’t reveal much, either. Gradually, through flashback, we learn that Eric was a soldier in the British Army Signal Corps when Singapore fell to the Japanese in 1943. He was taken prisoner, along with thousands of others, and conscripted as a slave laborer to build a railroad through Thailand. During this period, he was singled out and tortured. In the 1980 timeline, Finlay informs Eric that his primary tormenter (Hiroyuki Sanada) is still alive and provides him with the man’s whereabouts. Eric sets off to exact his revenge. Again, this is decidedly old-fashioned stuff. The cinematography is pretty and lush and conventional. The performances are strong and the characters troubled and nuanced. The ideas explored in the script — the meaning of revenge, the capacity for forgiveness, the ability of the human mind to survive trauma — are important, and the film comes close to the

psychological realism in terms of the toll of war. But The Railway Man is weakened by its moral middle-ground and the tameness its “happy ending” requires, which undermines its other successes. R. 116m. — John J. Bennett

NOTICE OF IMPENDING POWER TO SELL TAX-DEFAULTED PROPERTY
Revenue and Taxation Code Section 3361, 3362
Pursuant to Revenue and Taxation Codes sections 3691 and 3692.4, the following conditions will, by operation of law, subject real property to the Tax Collector’s power to sell. 1) All property for which property taxes and assessments have been in default for five or more years. 2) All property that has a nuisance abatement lien recorded against it and for which property taxes and assessments have been in default for three or more years. 3) Any property that has been identified and requested for purchase by a city, county, city and county, or nonprofit organization to serve the public benefit by providing housing or services directly related to low-income persons and for which property taxes and assessments have been in default for three or more years. The parcels listed herein meet one or more of the criteria listed above and thus, will become subject to the Tax Collector’s power to sell on July 1, 2014, at 12:01 a.m., by operation of law. The Tax Collector’s power to sell will arise unless the property is either redeemed or made subject to an installment plan of redemption initiated as provided by law prior to close of business on the last business day in June. The right to an installment plan terminates on the last business day in June, and after that date the entire balance due must be paid in full to prevent sale of the property at public auction. The right of redemption survives the property becoming subject to the power to sell, but it terminates at close of business on the last business day prior to the date of the sale by the Tax Collector. All information concerning redemption or the initiation of an installment plan of redemption will be furnished, upon request by John Bartholomew, Humboldt County Tax Collector, 825 5th Street, Room 125, Eureka, CA 95501, (707) 476-2450. The amount to redeem, including all penalties and fees, as of June 2014, is shown opposite the assessment/parcel number and next to the name of the assessee.

Executed at Eureka, Humboldt County California, on May 16th, 2014 Published in North Coast Journal on May 22nd, May 29th & June 5th, 2014.
YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER A DEED OF TRUST DATED SEPTEMBER 16, 2008. UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash, a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, or savings association, or savings bank specified in §5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state, will be held by the duly appointed trustee, or his duly appointed representative. The sale will be made without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to satisfy the obligation secured by said deed of trust. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness in the property address or other common designation shown herein. Trustor(s): BLACK AND WEBB DEVELOPMENT, A GENERAL PARTNERSHIP, by Richard L. Black and Michael T. Webb, general partners. Deed of Trust recorded October 7, 2008, as Instrument No. 2008-24043-5, of official records of Humboldt County, California. Date of Sale: June 25, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. (TEN A.M.)

The purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Trustor, the Beneficiary, or the Trustee. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on the real property offered for sale, you should understand that there are risks in bidding at a trustee auction. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. If you are the highest bidder at the sale, and there are senior liens affecting the property, you are or may be responsible for paying all senior liens before receiving clear title to the property. For the present sale, the Trustee believes, but does not warrant, that there are no senior liens. Prospective bidders must do their own research. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of existing liens affecting the property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information.
