Fest Fee Shellfish Editor: Thank you for the insightful article on Arcata Main Street and the Oyster Festival (“Oysters, Beer and Cash,” June 6). I have to confess that I decided to boycott the festival three years ago when the organizers jacked up the beer prices and also decided to charge a ridiculous $3 for a paper bracelet that verified that a person was over 21. At the age of 68 I just didn’t think that was necessary. Ever since then I have wondered if there was a story behind the story. Your article answered many of my questions. I wasn’t surprised to learn that “the biggest moneymaker at Oyster Fest is beer.” I was surprised, however, by Jennifer Koopman’s comment that “if it costs you $10 to get in and you buy one less beer, we’re OK with that.” Well, sure, they’re OK. You just paid them for a beer you’re not going to get. The latest attempt to gouge people by charging a $10 admission for the privilege of spending more money seems ridiculous. I can see something like this happening in San Francisco or Los Angeles, but not Humboldt County. I am going to go out on a limb and predict that this year’s festival will be a dismal financial failure. I know I won’t be there. — Bill Morris, Eureka

Be Like Mendo Editor: Kudos to Ryan Burns for his excellent article (“Meet the County’s New Values,” June 6). As he clearly pointed out, the issues raised by the actions of the Gang of Four (Fennell, Bohn, Bass and Sundberg) are many. The most distressing issues are those of process and the totally new slant given to the general plan guiding principles. Fennell and Bohn met in secret and unilaterally rewrote what had taken years and an enormous amount of public input and created guiding principles that are a developer’s wet dream, and then they and their cohorts voted the rewrite in with barely a nod to public opinion. Although the general public was mostly unaware of all of this, HumCPR had plenty of notice, thanks to Fennell, to get their people out for the dog and pony show of a hearing on the rewrite. All was rushed through in a matter of days. What we have experienced is a coup, a takeover, by four of the five supes and if everyone sits on their hands and does

nothing this will be just the beginning. For a study in contrast here is the first principle from the Mendocino GP: “Conservation of Mendocino County’s natural resources, farmland, forest land, and open spaces is essential to the rural quality of life desired by residents and visitors alike. “Planned growth and compact development forms are essential to conserving environmental resources, farmland and open spaces. “Direct new commercial and residential growth to cities and community areas where development can be supported by existing or planned infrastructures and public services, and environmental impacts can be minimized.” Mendocino includes climate change impacts in their GP. They, unlike the Gang of Four, wouldn’t recommend building in a flood plain. Remember, our government is only as good as we make it be. — Sylvia De Rooy, Eureka Editor: Ryan Burns’ attempt to make transparent the movements of our supes is commendable! Please do read this article ... it is wordy but each paragraph is loaded with facts! We do not live on a planet with infinite resources. We cannot continue to misuse what is here and expand without careful planning and examination. This is clearly the motivation behind the new and revised General Plan. We don’t have a growing population, due to our isolation. So some attention to this would be advised. (Airport.) We do need to continue to maintain affordable housing, which could mean restoring buildings in lieu of developments. We do need to protect agricultural lands and we do need standards to en-

force this ... no standards set in this new proposal. Ryan sets all this out so clearly, and it is to all of our interests to attend these meetings. We all do live downstream ... how well I have realized this just lately! Thank you, Ryan! More! More! — Ginni Hassrick, Bayside

Beyond Infinity

Editor: According to Amir Aczel’s “Mystery Of The Aleph: Mathematics, The Kabbalah, And The Search For Infinity,” it is very questionable whether Cantor “won” his lifelong effort to master infinity, as stated in the caption to the photo accompanying Barry Evans’ excellent piece (Field Notes, June 6).  All through his mature years, Cantor suffered periodic and extended mental depression due only slightly less to his subject’s intractability than to the German mathematical community’s near-universal dismissal of his proofs. After more than one mental breakdown, Cantor spent his final years in a rest home, exhausted by his labors and by unrelenting rejection. He turned in the end to philosophy and Elizabethan literature, devoting his energies toward proving that Francis Bacon wrote Shakespeare’s plays. His search for the mathematics of infinity was taken up by Kurt Gödel who, similarly overcome, turned finally to physics, philosophy, and an ontological proof of God’s existence. While Cantor’s set theory and his approach to calculating infinity are pillars of modern mathematics, infinity itself still eludes our finite capabilities and comprehension. — Tom Anderson, Eureka

Editor: This is in response to Greg King’s comment (Mailbox, June 6) on saw safety re: the cover of the “Humboldt at Work” issue, (May 23). Great shot, but the first thought that came to me was much like Mr. King’s reaction: No chaps. No ear

Witness Standing upon the cliff of impossibilities: I wait Ready to jump into the ravine where the canyons are wide and filled with the slow rivers of time the evening yawn of sunset, cools and the side pools are surrounded by the whine and whir of crickets, cicadas But the lazy fish turn in their sleep roiling into the deep of their dreams filled with waves and wind walls of sand and storm of unyielding undertow Then night and the sky is lit full of spark and strike come before the collapsing drum roll of echoing thunder a long fade into the forgetfulness of morning and memory — Steve Brackenbury

Editor: Humboldt County has transportation nemeses: a harbor nonviable for commercial deep sea vessels, and the Eel River’s defunct railbed (“The Disappearing Railroad Blues,” May 16). Sometimes flexibility changes perspective. Humboldt and Mendocino are long counties. Conditions call for economic vision. Suggestion: Weigh amending Humboldt’s southern and eastern boundary lines — the southern portion of Humboldt forming a new, southern boundary line straight from the coast to north of Ettersburg, and south of Phillipsville, into Trinity County east of Zenia. Form a straight line to its new extended line on the south from the junction with Trinity County northwest of Orleans, from Highway 96 south to east of Zenia. If Trinity and even Mendocino were amenable, Humboldt County might strengthen its water habitat resources and better develop agriculture by trading to Trinity and Mendocino County. Humboldt would gain almost all of the Van Duzen River, possibly part of Ruth Lake, all of Mad River, more of the S. Fork of the Trinity, some of Hayfork, add about 12 miles of the Trinity upriver, and about an equal length of Highway 36. It extricates itself from some of the mired economic mechanics of the Eel River. Then Humboldt can look into what type of rail it might wish to invest to serve its newer, straighter, streamlined perspective through its warmer climes southeast. Such a ground shift might settle the implausibility of re-laying rail along the Eel River, allowing the past to bury the past, with less encumbered pursuance of problematical mass infusion of federal funds. Local effort can be encouraged to develop acquired land to the east. — Sharon Pearce, Samoa

Leadership Seriously Lacking


y mom used to say, “Judy Ann, if you can’t say anything nice about someone … .” You know the end of that sentence. I hope she will

forgive me. I landed my first real job when I was 15. I fried taquitos and made banana splits in El Monte, Calif. My first professional job did not come until I was in my early 30s, after three children and a degree from Humboldt State. I was a real reporter. The year was 1981; I could hardly believe someone would actually pay me to go to meetings of the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday and, back at the office, write about anything I thought was important enough. I loved my job. And I’ve always loved politics. Within the supervisors’ chambers, I’ve observed some of the best public servants over the years. On top of my list will always be Sara Parsons, representing the 3rd District. She was intelligent, skillful, pragmatic, witty and unfailingly gracious. I watched many times as she would gently coax her four male colleagues into doing the right thing. She could charm the cigar out of the mouth of the curmudgeonly 1st District Supervisor Erv Renner, another of my all-time favorites. Then there were the feisty years (I rather enjoyed) between pro-business Danny Walsh, representing Eureka’s 4th, and lefty Arcatan Wes Chesbro. County supervisors come and go. Public policy is made and remade. The board has been unbalanced before — 4-1 with the 3rd District being the outlier. But today’s board is different. Four members were put into office with a lot of money from a few individuals answerable to no one ( Content?oid=2194355). One of those backers, Lee Ulansey, warrants constant scrutiny because he heads a shadowy, anti-government, libertarian-almost-TeaPartyish group called the Humboldt Coalition for Property Rights. After Ulansey helped his HumCPR executive director (now former employee) Estelle Fennell win a seat on the Board of Supervisors, she turned around and appointed him to the Planning Commission and did not

bother to recuse herself on the vote. Going into last week, it’s fair to say I was just unimpressed with this crop of supervisors. Now I’m angry. Last Monday, on a vote of 4-1, (3rd District Mark Lovelace the lone vote), they pulled off what was one of the most blatant abuses of power by a board I can recall in my 32 reporting years. Let’s start with Fennell. I have good friends who are Fennell supporters. They love her radio persona, her libertarian streak, her blue eyes and curly hair. Her spirit. Go get ‘em, Estelle! I’m sure she’s a wonderful, warm human being. I’d like her for a neighbor. She’s just unfit for the job if she thinks what she did was OK. So let’s look at what she did: On Wednesday, May 29, she decided all by herself — or in conjunction with her (cough!) advisers — that getting this damn General Plan Update done would sure be a lot easier if the guiding principles were a little more friendly to those of us special rural landowners. (If you think an organization’s mission statement and guiding principles are not all that important, you’re wrong. They are the reason any business, nonprofit organization or service club even exists.) So, here we are 13 painful years into the General Plan Update guided since 2004 by a sound, written set of guiding principles, and one supervisor elected in a close race just last November decides to change them. How, exactly? Here are just two examples, but it doesn’t take a high IQ to figure out what’s going on. Instead of “protect agriculture and timberland … using measures such as increased restrictions on resource land subdivisions …” (in other words, development where services already exist, not further encroaching on ag and timberland), Fennell wants to “encourage, incentivize and support agriculture, timber and compatible uses on resource lands” — or, Build, baby, build! And, all you renters out there? Second class, I’m afraid. Landowners are special. Fennell actually inserted a pledge to “honor landowners’ right to live” pretty much any place they want. I guess renters have to pay homage to the moneyed land barons whose housing rights are sacrosanct.

She unveiled this radically different set of guiding principles before the weekend, followed by a hearing and vote Monday afternoon. So we all had less than 24 hours times four days to consider her personal revisions and two of those 24-hour periods were the weekend. If you, too, are not angry, you should be — at Fennell and three of her colleagues. Fennell got Rex Bohn, also elected last November, to agree with her plan. Again, I’ve written before, Bohn is a great guy, a tireless do-gooder for almost any community cause. But if Bohn (1) read the original guiding principles adopted after a long public input process in 2004, (2) compared those to Fennell’s changes, (3) didn’t think those changes were significant and (4) couldn’t see that her maneuvering was a blatant, preplanned power grab, then he is unbelievably naïve and seriously lacking critical thinking skills. He, too, is unfit to serve in the job he is paid to do. That leaves us two supervisors elected in the previous election cycle — those up for re-election next year: Virginia Bass and Ryan Sundberg. They, too, voted yes on that infamous Monday to Fennell’s power grab, making no attempt to stop her. Last year I wrote one of my columns, an update on the Bay Trail, commending Bass’ leadership as chair on a trail vote the week prior. With pro-trail Jimmy Smith absent, she was facing a 2-1 vote (Clif Clendenen and Mark Lovelace supporting vs. Ryan Sundberg, who for some bizarre, unexplainable reason was opposed). She said out loud that if she joined Sundberg, a 2-2 vote would mean failure. So she quickly started a fast tap dance, modifying language, enough to finally sway Sundberg, and we got the aye trail vote we needed. Last Monday Bass came up far short on leadership. And Sundberg? Forget it. Like Fennell and Bohn and Bass — nice people all around. Just not up for the job. What can we do? The job of supervisor pays more than $80,000 annually. The commitment is for four years. At your next book club meeting, at the farmers

markets and in grocery stores, when you go to church, when you play cards or golf or go running — start a discussion with your friends and neighbors. Do you think what Fennell and her fellow board members did was OK? At our First Friday potluck in Fieldbrook last week, I can report the answer was a resounding no. It was not right. Who else in the 5th and 4th Districts are willing to step up and run next year, to challenge Sundberg and Bass? We need better leadership. Let’s have that discussion now. And Fennell? Boy, do I miss Clif Clendenen.

SoHum developer Bob McKee has been ordered to pay $200,000 in fines to Humboldt County in the culmination of a costly 11-year lawsuit over McKee’s purchase and division of Tooby Ranch near Garberville. The ruling, filed Friday by Humboldt County Judge Dale Reinholtsen, calls for McKee to pay fines for violating the Williamson Act, which offers tax benefits for ag land in active production. A state court previously determined McKee sold parcels of the Tooby Ranch that were under the minimum size required by the act. Over the course of the lawsuit, McKee argued that his divisions were legal, because the former owners of Tooby Ranch initially entered a Williamson Act contract with the county when smaller parcels were allowed. Despite a local ruling in McKee’s favor in 2006, the appellate court determined that he had violated the act, and sent the case back to local courts to determine a resolution. In his ruling, Reinholtsen wrote that “both sides acted reasonably but imperfectly” and said McKee could be credited for believing he was following the law when he divided the land. “The evidence did not support the notion that he is a victim of local government run amok,” Reinholtsen wrote. “At the same time, he cannot be reduced to the caricature of a greedy land developer who flouts the law in the careless pursuit of profits.” The ruling is not final. Both parties have 20 days to file objections with the court.

When it comes to planning for the future, Humboldt Bay Harbor District CEO Jack Crider is focusing on achievable near-term goals while casting a skeptical eye toward the resurgence of rail service. He recently announced that the district is paying $19,500 for a financial pre-feasibility study that will analyze the potential of restoring rail service to the county. But unlike local “rah-rah rail!” boosters, Crider suspects that the math won’t pencil out. Funding for the study, which is being conducted by consulting firm BST, will be carved from funds previously awarded the district by Caltrans for a Samoa transportation plan. Crider said the study should be finished later this month. This very issue — the financial feasibility of maintaining a railroad — may be the most daunting challenge facing a train resurrection in the county, and yet such an analysis is conspicuously missing from the scope of work that east-west rail boosters hope to investigate with a far more expensive feasibility study. Crider recently spoke to a group of such boosters at the Samoa Cookhouse. He was invited to speak at a luncheon hosted by the Humboldt Bay Harbor Working Group, a citizens group that has been proselytizing the choo-choo gospel throughout northern California. Crider told the group that the Harbor District has more immediate and realistic goals, many of which could be achieved through the purchase of the former pulp mill on the Samoa Peninsula. On the down side, the site houses large quantities of toxic industrial liquids, but it also has amenities that could solve a lot of challenges facing the agency. At the top of Crider’s list of desires is a public dock, which he said would likely stimulate local

tries, said incident commander Rod Mendes, who is director of the tribe’s Office of Emergency Services. Someone called his office around 3:45 p.m. yesterday to report it. Mendes said the fire spread quickly to the timber firm’s structures and equipment. Witnesses reported explosions and black sticky plumes as fuel ignited. State, federal and tribal fire departments and local and tribal volunteer fire fighters — by ground and air — finally doused the blaze, which burned five acres. There were no injuries, and 10 homes were saved, Mendes said.

Luckily, he said, as the tanker heated up it vented itself, and then firefighters moved in to cool it off with water. Mendes said the fire’s cause is under investigation. He added that “it’s a big loss for the tribe” but the extent of that loss hasn’t yet been calculated. ●

Hang Up the Old Dredge?

It looks like gold mining in California’s rivers is about to get a little harder. The Department of Fish and Wildlife is asking the state to close a loophole in a 2009 ban on suction dredge mining. Fish lovers and gold bugs have been at odds for years. The moratorium, scheduled until 2016, was issued to give the state enough time to figure out new regulations and how it would pay to enforce them. But the moratorium contained some ambiguous language, including the definition of a suction dredge as a hose, a motor and a sluice box. Undeterred, clever miners realized they could simply take off the sluice box and voilà! — it’s no longer a dredge. Instead of being sorted aboard the dredge, all that gravel, and the bits of gold mixed in, is pumped onto the bank or another container for sorting. The technique is clearly diagrammed on the website for gold advocates the New 49’ers. MAIN STREET’S MAP OF PROPOSED FENCES.


Harbor Commissioner Arrested for Perjury

Aaron Newman, a Humboldt Bay Harbor District commissioner, prominent commercial fisherman and lifelong local, was arrested on Saturday by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife for allegedly falsifying applications for the taking of wildlife. As first reported by the Lost Coast Outpost, Newman was booked into the Humboldt County jail on felony perjury charges. The longtime president (and current vice-president) of the Humboldt Fishermen’s Marketing Association, Newman was a member of the Marine Life Protection Act stakeholder group here on


If Fish and Wildlife’s proposed changes go through, the language defining a dredge will be removed — making it clear that sucking gravel from the river bed ain’t OK. Manual techniques — gold panning, for example — are allowed. The changes are a response to a March petition from the Karuk Tribe and other environmental groups and will be subject to a five-day public comment period sometime after June 17. Comments are being taken on the Office of Administrative law’s website at Visit the Journal online to read press releases from Fish and Wildlife and the Karuk Tribe. ● ST.

Nurses, St. Joe’s Near Accord

After months of negotiations punctuated by heavy picketing, nurses at three St. Joseph Health System hospitals — in Eureka, Petaluma and Apple Valley — have tentatively settled on a new collective bargaining agreement. In Eureka, one of the nurses’ main complaints was that reductions in support staff had resulted in other nurses feeling overworked and tired. They were asking for their support staff to be restored, and a news release from the California Nurses Association indicates this, and some other demands, could be met if the new contract sticks. ●


Oyster Fences OK’d

It’s a go. The Arcata City Council gave the thumbs up tonight for fencing around the Arcata Plaza for this month’s Oyster Festival, which will cost $10 for adults to enter. Mayor Shane Brinton was the only councilmember to vote against the fence, saying blocking off and charging to enter the plaza was “inappropriate.” “I say it with no ill will, but this is our downtown commons,” Brinton said. It’s not just the plaza’s inner sanctum that will be fenced off. The six-foot cyclone fences will extend to the edges of many of the plaza’s surrounding buildings, meaning only paying festivalgoers will be able to access the businesses. This is with the apparent blessing of the business owners. Those who disagreed with the plan were excluded from the fenced-off zone, Koopman said. The plaza’s north side — populated by bars and a few storefronts — is outside the fence, along with several businesses on the southeast and northeast corners of the plaza. At first, the outcome of tonight’s meeting seemed uncertain. Councilwoman Susan Ornelas lamented the late notice of the plan, saying she hadn’t seen the map of proposed fencing until today. “I feel like we’re being put on the spot here, and we don’t have a lot of options,” she said. Public meeting enthusiast Kent Sawatzky said he was concerned about the last minute changes as well. No one was quite as surly as Luke’s Joint proprietor Luke Patterson, who spent his three-minute public comment period asking questions about the fencing, before sitting down next to Koopman and glaring at her, then leaving the meeting. Patterson plans to hold a competing festival that same day. Several people spoke in favor of the plan, and Police Chief Tom Chapman said he expects it will be the safest Oyster Fest in years. ● CRIME / BY RYAN BURNS / WEDNESDAY, JUNE 5 AT 3:28 P.M.

Pot ... Also a Hand Grenade

The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office had a big day yesterday, as one big pot bust led to a money seizure and then another pot bust, topped off with a hand grenade. It started at 8:40 a.m. in Carlotta, as the Sheriff’s Office Community Response Team and the multi-agency Humboldt

County Drug Task Force served a search warrant at 81 Fir Loop Court, according to a press release. There they found about 53 pounds of bud packed in one-pound bags and 72 pounds of dried marijuana, along with growing plants, cash and rifles. Two men were arrested (Gregory Aaron Stephens, 37, and Benjamin Robert Rose, 22) followed by a third when Allan Henry Costa, 23, drove up to the scene and “refused to comply with the officers’ demands,” the release states. Stephens, you may recall, was one of four men arrested last September in connection with a home invasion that involved kidnapping, child endangerment and bear pepper spray. He was eventually placed on probation. Deputies learned that Stephens owns a second house in Eureka, where they found another $10,000 in cash. While still at the Carlotta location, deputies noticed a “well-worn path” to the house next door — a house with a big greenhouse, the release states. One speedy search warrant later and the deputies found 1,000 growing plants, about five pounds of processed marijuana, more than a pound of hash and a hand grenade. The bomb squad was called in “and rendered the grenade safe.” The full Sheriff’s Office press release can be read on the Journal’s website. ●

Journalist embeds for a year in the marijuana lands of SoHum By Emily Brady

The Making of Humboldt


hen Emily Brady arrived in Garberville in the summer of 2010, she was thinking that the sorta-famous, sorta-secretive pot town could make for an interesting chapter in a book about California’s (seemingly) impending marijuana legalization. But almost immediately she realized that the insular, outlaw culture of Southern Humboldt warranted more than a chapter. “It just seemed like a really different place, this other world,” Brady told the Journal in a recent interview. At the time, SoHum was abuzz with excitement and anxiety about the upcoming vote on Prop. 19, which would have legalized the cash crop that’s sustained the region’s economy for roughly 40 years. Many worried that legalization would destroy their livelihoods; others embraced the idea on idealistic grounds. Most were conflicted. “I realized that to get the story of this place I needed to stay there,” Brady said. And so, for more than a year, the young writer lived in Southern Humboldt, A LAW ENFORCEMENT HELICOPTER HOISTS A BUNDLE OF MATURE MARIJUANA PLANTS. PHOTO BY EMILY BRADY


exploring questions facing the community: How long can a counterculture exist before it becomes a culture unto itself? What comes after pot? When a community is sustained through secrecy and illegal activities, how does that affect the next generation? In her first book, Humboldt: Life on America’s Marijuana Frontier, which arrives in bookstores on Tuesday, Brady examines such questions through the eyes of four SoHum residents, each with a different perspective. There’s “Mare,” an aging back-to-the-lander who’s finally ready to stand up and be counted as a grower. There’s Bob, a good-humored but frustrated sheriff’s deputy outmatched by money and legal hypocrisy. There’s “Emma,” a young woman raised amid the industry with a half-brother, Mikal Xylon Wilde, who stands charged with murdering a laborer on his Kneeland pot farm. In this condensed excerpt, we meet “Crockett,” part of the profit-hungry second generation of cultivators, producing marijuana on a massive scale. Brady will give a reading and sign copies of her book at Garberville’s King Range Books on June 27 at 4 p.m. The next evening at 7, Arcata’s Northtown Books will host another read-and-sign event with the author. — Ryan Burns

Against the shadowy

outline of the mighty redwoods, the speeding Ford pickup looked like a toy powered by some far-off remote control. A balmy, late summer wind whipped through the truck’s open window and through the sandy brown hair of the man behind the wheel. It was late, and there was no emergency, but Crockett Randall sped as if his life depended on it. He loved to drive fast. He called it taking an engine to its limit, but it wasn’t really about the engine; it was about the adrenaline. The closer Crockett came to death, the more alive he felt, whether it was hurtling down a snow-covered mountain on a snowboard or driving thirty miles over the speed limit on a dark country road. At 35, Crockett was old enough to know better, but teetering on the edge was part of who he was, and he did it in ways you’d never suspect just by looking at him. Crockett had a strong, square jaw, shy blue eyes, and a permanent tan earned by bobbing around on a surfboard off the North Coast, braving hypothermia and great white sharks in the hope of catching the perfect wave. One of Crockett’s greatest gifts was that he possessed the quiet, unassuming presence of someone you could easily forget was in the room. This chameleon-like quality helped him blend in with the ranchers he worked with at the volunteer fire department back home, and with the men he used to operate heavy equipment with. The aging hippies on the commune where he grew up still accepted him as one of their own, and when the police pulled him over for speeding, which happened at least once a month, usually all Crockett had to do was flash the license that permitted him to drive fire trucks, and the cop would realize he was part of the brotherhood. Then there was the underworld where Crockett made his money, where everything was built on trust and intuition. He belonged to that brotherhood, too. In many ways, Crockett was the perfect example of the kind of men who migrated to Humboldt County every year. They came from around the country and sometimes from abroad, like miners of old, hoping to strike it rich. In general, these newcomers didn’t tend to tithe their earnings with donations to hospice, or spend $1,000 on raffle tickets to support the community school. These newcomers often lived in isolation out in the hills, where they clear-cut hillsides and grew pot. Or they filled buildings with impossibly bright lights and grew their plants indoors, with diesel powered generators. Crockett was part of this Green Rush, as it was called, but he also came to the marijuana industry honestly.

He was born into it. The Avenue of the Giants that Crockett raced along was a 30-mile strip of asphalt named after the redwood forest it meandered through. Back before the state built a four-lane highway through most of Humboldt County, the Avenue was the main thoroughfare north. Now it was a rambling country road, a parallel scenic route that offered tourists a way to submerge themselves in the splendor of the big trees without having to leave their cars. Sometimes when Crockett roared down the Avenue with his coworker Zavie, with “My Dick,” by Mickey Avalon, blasting on the stereo, Crockett would wonder about the tourists they passed, with their RVs and cameras. Did they have any idea what was going on here? At this late hour, Crockett was headed back to the cabin on the hill, to the place where he’d been on lockdown for the past few weeks. An hour or so earlier, he had snuck off to eat at the Avenue Café in Miranda. He dined at his usual spot, at the redwood slab counter. Under dim lights, he ate chicken parmigiana and scrolled through friends’ Facebook updates on his laptop. A lone highway patrol officer sat a few seats away. After the officer left, Crockett peered out the window to make sure the cop was headed in the opposite direction, then settled up his bill and tipped the waitress. Crockett had to get back to the cabin. Every moment he was away there was a risk that someone could come and take everything he had spent the past five months working toward. Crockett turned off the Avenue and gunned up a hill. He left the redwoods behind as he climbed higher into a dense forest of Douglas fir and tan oak. After a few miles of twists and turns, he arrived at a driveway that was sealed with a metal gate. The sign that hung from it read “No Trespassing.” Crockett’s fingers moved nimbly across the padlock. He lifted up the heavy chain, and the gate swung open. Dust billowed up around the truck as Crockett bounced down the bumpy dirt road, the kind that wore cars out before their time and felt so far from civilization it seemed like it might lead straight into the African bush. There were two more padlocked gates and two more warning signs: “Private.” “Keep Out.” Unpaved roads reminded Crockett of the commune he grew up on. But those roads had been tamer; they didn’t have Humboldt’s foreboding barriers or signs. The cabin was down a steep grade past the final gate. As Crockett pulled up, the headlights on his truck illuminated the small square building and the tree line just beyond. He killed the engine, and everycontinued on next page • North Coast Journal • Thursday, June 13, 2013

nia law to grow a small number of plants for medical use, gardens over 100 plants risked stiff mandatory sentences under federal law. Theirs was many times that, and its flowers were destined for the black market that for decades had ensured that marijuana farmers were among the world’s richest. At various times throughout the 1980s pot was worth more per ounce than gold. In the early 1990s, some master growers in Humboldt earned as much as $6,000 a pound for their outdoor crop. Then, in 1996, Proposition 215, the Compassionate Use Act, became law, and medical marijuana patients were allowed to grow their own. People around the state began growing more of it in their garages, attics, and backyards, and prices on the black market began to spiral downward. Now, in 2010, a statewide initiative called Proposition 19, the Regulate, Control, and Tax Cannabis Act, would, if passed by voters in November, legalize pot outright. Frankie was completely against legalization. His motto was “I’m not in this for the money, I’m in this for a lot of money.” A sticker on the wall at his house summed up his feelings and the feelings of many other growers: “Save Humboldt County, Keep Pot Illegal.” The vote was just over two months away, and Crockett still hadn’t made up his mind about legalization. On one hand, he liked the idea of drastic changes in history, and ending marijuana prohibition sounded cool. He also didn’t agree with the whole prison industrial complex, with its judges, and prison guards and police who earned money by locking people away. The government had spent $41 billion that year alone fighting the War on Drugs, according to a study by the libertarian Cato Institute. It was a war Crockett knew could never be won. On the other hand, he wondered how he and his friends would make a living in a world where pot was legal and no longer as lucrative. With legalization, would companies such as Philip Morris plant acres of ganja in the Central Valley? Or, worse yet, what if China started growing pot for export? They’d be selling it at dollar stores. These thoughts had all occurred to Crockett, but he put them out of his mind as he lay on the couch and finished his joint to the tinny sound of the “Hotel California” remix playing on his laptop. First, he had to guard the crop and get through harvest. Then he had to get paid. And then maybe he could start thinking about legalization and his future. He already had a five-year plan. By the time he was 40, he wanted to get his pilot’s license, find his father, and build a little cabin on the commune where he grew up.

On this late August night, the marijuana flowers outside were beginning to fill out and were near their resiny peaks. It was a time when sheriff’s deputies might come to your gate to make sure your medical paperwork was in order. And it was rip-off season, when thieves could make off with a year’s crop in one fell swoop. Paranoia permeated the hills of Humboldt this time of year. It explained the pit bulls in the back of the trucks around town and the brisk sales of motion-detecting cameras and alarm systems at the Security Store up in the Meadows Business Park (the “insecurity” store, as some people called it). The irony was that while most outsiders feared stumbling upon armed growers in Humboldt, most growers feared being stumbled upon by armed men themselves.

musky scent of marijuana hung heavy in the air. The plant’s trademark odor was often compared to a skunk’s spray; it was the smell that had led to a million busts. He swung open the door of the cabin-shaped greenhouse to have a look at the girls, as growers call female marijuana plants. They were still there, lined up obediently in tidy rows. They were the same strain he had smoked earlier, O.G. Kush. But whereas the plants he and Zavie grew under bright lights in the house would reach only a few feet tall before they flowered, sun and time coaxed these ladies to heights of around 10 feet. They were tall and skinny and manicured in a fiercely attentive way, like premier cru grapevines. A few days earlier, Crockett and Zavie had gone through and removed the larger leaves on the plants and tied the heaviest branches to wooden stakes with blue plastic ribbon. As the flower

clusters, known as “buds,” thickened nearing harvest, the plastic tape and stakes would prevent branches from snapping under their growing weight. O.G. Kush was known among growers for having a weak stem and being prone to mold. The blue tape would help support the stems. As for the mold, there was nothing Crockett could do about that but pray. Crockett shut the greenhouse door and did a quick walk around the other structures. Between each one was a row of heirloom tomatoes, bell peppers, chard, and beets. Frankie had insisted that Crockett and Zavie grow the vegetables. In case someone buzzed the greenhouses with a plane, Frankie somehow thought they’d think it was a veggie farm. In all, around 700 marijuana plants grew on this property. Come harvest, Crockett hoped each would produce at least half a pound of pot. But that was still a couple of months away. So much could happen before then. Rippers could come. The cops could pay a visit. In the meantime, Crockett would sit in the cabin and guard the crop with his life. It was late, and he had to be back to water the garden early the next morning. Crockett started up the Rhino, revved its tiny engine, and sped off into the darkness in a cloud of fast-moving dirt. It was only a matter of days before someone would be shot in a remote Humboldt garden filled with emerald green plants much like his.

them so much. Read on, dream away, and let me know if you’ve figured out a way to make these work in our climate. Sugarcane: The last time I was in Miami, I ordered a mojito and it came with a swizzle stick cut from fresh sugarcane. I’ve wanted to grow my own sugarcane ever since. It’s crazy, I know, to even consider cultivating a tropical plant like this unless you live — well, in the tropics. I have not yet figured out how to pull it off myself, but how hard can it be? It’s just a big, overgrown grass, right? Sugarcane very much prefers year-round temperatures above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, regular water and full sun. But really, anyone with a greenhouse could nurse a pot of sugarcane along as long as temperatures didn’t get below 40 degrees in the winter. So if this intrigues you, search around for a tropical nursery that will sell you one of the extraordinary varieties of heirloom sugarcane prized by tropical plant geeks. There are black, red and purple-stemmed cultivars, red and white striped varieties, bright yellow varieties and so on. Give the plants a couple of years to mature, and remember that the sugar concentrates in the lowest portion of the stem. To harvest the plant, you’ll want to cut it down at the base, cut the lower parts

of the cane into six-inch segments, and then cut them lengthwise to peel away the tough outer skin and get to the sweet, tender stuff inside. Good luck with that! Lemongrass: It’s easy enough to start a lemongrass plant: Just buy fresh stalks in the produce section, set them in a glass of water and wait a few weeks for them to take root. Give the plant rich soil amended with plenty of compost, a good granular, balanced organic fertilizer, full sun, and as much heat as you can provide. Plan on watering it with a nitrogen fertilizer every few weeks throughout the growing season. (I use a mixture of fish emulsion and kelp meal.) You can also grow lemongrass in a container, which makes it easier to shelter in the winter. The plants do well in a greenhouse but aren’t suitable as houseplants because they won’t get enough light indoors, even in a sunny window. If you are lucky enough to have a healthy plant growing in the ground, dig out a 6 inch chunk of roots and sticks before winter comes and bring it indoors in a pot. It will stay fairly dormant, but it will get through the winter and you can plant it outside again in the late spring. Harvest lemongrass by reaching down to the base of the stalk and giving it a

No granate juice and sugar on the stove until the sugar melts. Let it cool, pour it in a jar or bottle with a secure lid, and add a splash of vodka as a preservative. It’ll keep in the refrigerator for a month or two, or in the freezer for much longer. My favorite grenadine cocktail is the SoSo Martini, made with equal parts gin and dry vermouth, a splash of calvados, and a dollop of grenadine. It’s a beautiful red color and a fantastic drink for the middle of winter, when pomegranates are in stores. Or — you know. Growing on trees. Somewhere. ●

varieties that could be nursed along in a large container and sheltered through the winter. “Nana” reaches only two or three feet tall, and “State Fair” gets to five feet. They can actually tolerate winter temperatures as low as about 10 degrees, but a tree in a container should come indoors when nighttime temperatures are routinely below 40. You may be thinking that this is an awful lot of trouble for a batch of grenadine, and you’d probably be right.

firm twist and pull. Muddle the tender stalks into rum, vodka and gin drinks to give them a more interesting and complex citrus flavor. Pineapple: Pineapple? That’s insane! It is insane to grow a pineapple, but I know that somebody out there wants to do it. If the authors of Growing Tasty Tropical Plants are to be believed, you can start one in a pot by simply taking the green top of a pineapple from the grocery store and planting it so that the base is covered by about an inch of soil. Pineapples need lots of light and warmth, so this is definitely a summer project. Once the plant has produced plenty of leaves and looks like it’s about ready to fruit, there’s a weird trick you can do to move things along. Take a slice of apple and push it into the crown of the plant. The apple gives off ethylene, a gas that promotes fruiting and ripening. Now, the downside to growing your own pineapples is that after all that effort, the plant’s pretty much just going to give you one new pineapple. So it’s worth doing as a mad horticultural stunt, but you’re not going to get an entire summer’s worth of pineapples for your piña coladas unless you go to the grocery store.

ven the high priestess Mary Jane of the past two summers might think this is pretty far out: Dell’Arte opens this year’s Mad River Festival on June 20 with its production of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors. “It’s a little daunting,” director Michael Fields admitted. “But it’s good for us to push into new territory.” This is the first Shakespeare in Blue Lake since 1975, when Fields and Joan Schirle co-starred in As You Like It. Not that Dell’Arte is abandoning its “theatre of place.” This Shakespearian comedy is

set in a mythical but recognizable version of a farmers’ market on the Arcata Plaza. Shakespeare’s story involves two sets of identical male twins separated not long after birth: two are nobles, both named Antipholus (don’t ask) and two are their servants, both named Dromio. In the Dell’Arte version the noble twins are Antiphola — two women who are both played by Mary Jane herself, Joan Schirle. The servants remain men but some other characters are also gender-flipped, so their relationships run almost the Humboldt gamut.

The traditional band is on hand, and part of the story is told in song, but Fields suggests that some proportion of Shakespeare’s words will survive. He also promises an elaborate set and lots of visual appeal, as well as the usual mayhem. But why Shakespeare? The idea came from KEET, responding to a push by PBS for local Shakespeare productions. That project didn’t materialize here, but the idea intrigued Dell’Arte. “We looked at the plays to see what we liked,” Fields said, “and The Comedy of Errors is certainly the most adaptable. There’s some weight to it, too, with those questions of identity. So it’s not just a knockabout, which is how people usually choose to do it.” The Comedy of Errors plays for three weekends in the outdoor amphitheatre at Dell’Arte, beginning June 20. Then this year’s Mad River Festival continues with more theatrics than usual, beginning with Between the Lines, a 45-minute acrobatic show that plays after Shakespeare on Friday and Saturday, June 21 and 22, but inside on the Carlo Theatre stage (and the walls, etc.) It’s created and performed by Dell’Arte School’s Andrea M. Martinez, Audrey Leclair, Juliana Frick, Moses Morton, Alyssa Huglett, Nicholette Routhier and Joe Krienke. If you’re really hip, you can call it “sexy acro.” The second weekend, June 29 and 30, features a noontime show out in “the back yard” especially for children. Called IN-Tents (A Conservation Comedy), it is created and performed by Dell’Arte’s Pratik Motwani, Meghan Frank and Janessa Johnsrude. Also on June 29 is the Lifetime Achievement Award ceremony and dinner, honoring Dell’Arte International co-founder Jane Hill. After securing the building that still houses Dell’Arte and directing the International School, she went on to rescue the Omaha Opera and expand the activities of the Sacramento Philharmonic as executive director. Michael Fields suggests he may interview Hill at the event in the manner of Inside the Actors Studio’s James Lipton. (Including perhaps the ostentatious French accent when mentioning the questionnaire developed by Bernard Pivot.) It all begins at 4 p.m.

The third weekend features the notorious Red Light in Blue Lake: Adult Cabaret, this year with special guests, the Va-Va Voom Burlesque Vixens. “It sells out immediately,” Fields noted, “so we’re doing two this year.” Shows begin at 10:30 p.m. on July 5 and 6. “It gets the weirdest audience,” he added unnecessarily. The fourth weekend — just before the Humboldt Folklife Festival takes over — Dell’Arte brings The Submarine Show to Blue Lake for four performances. Created and performed by Dell’Arte School alums Slater Penney (an Emmy winner) and Jaron Hollander (formerly of Cirque Du Soleil), this family-oriented comedy employing both pantomime and vocal sound effects was a popular and critical hit in San Francisco and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. (There’s a short YouTube video to give you the flavor.) Supported by the Nancy Lafrenz Memorial Scholarship, The Submarine Show plays Thursday through Saturday, July 11-13 at 8 p.m. and Sunday July 14 at 4 p.m. Though bigger this year than in the immediate past, the Mad River Festival may be substantially larger next summer. That’s because Dell’Arte just received a $350,000 grant from ArtPlace America to develop the Mad River Industrial Art Park. In addition to funding arts programs and projects that link the arts and economic development, part of the grant will be devoted to expanding the Mad River Festival into the Industrial Art Park.

Also announced last week:

Ferndale Repertory Theatre is adding a “Stage Two” program to its previously announced “MainStage” lineup. These shows will still be on the Ferndale stage and integrated into the season, but with lower admission prices. The idea is to present newer and more cutting-edge work in less elaborate productions. Added so far are Backwards in High Heels by Chicago playwright Jim Henry (which is not the musical about Ginger Rogers with that title) that will run in April, and the musical The Spitfire Grill by James Valcq and Fred Alley, which will play next July. l

A Decade of Creative Cooperation By Ken Weiderman


t’s time to go to the store. You put your list together: butter, milk, coffee, bread — and a small raku-fired sculpture of a frog having tea? OK, so art is not on the typical shopping list for most people. Perhaps that’s why the folks from Arcata Artisans were told “this is never going to work” when they opened the doors of their artists’ cooperative a decade ago. “It works!” boasts Jim Lowry, co-op board president, with a confident laugh. Nestled into a row of shops on the west side of the plaza, Arcata Artisans is a sparkly gem bursting with 32 artists’ diverse works. This month, the cooperative is celebrating its 10-year anniversary with a gallery-wide party during Arts! Arcata on Friday, June 14, from 6 to 9 p.m. While art and Arcata may seem like a match made in heaven, artists who have tried to show their work here know it can be tricky. With only a few actual “galleries,” artists frequently compete with food or racks of T-shirts when displaying their paintings or photos.


Even then, the shops with distracting merchandise carry a long waiting list for the privilege of a month-long show. Arcata Artisans is a different story. Early in 2002, frustrated with no place to put her mounting pile of ceramics, Marian Coleman gathered up a group of her favorite local artists and proposed the idea of a cooperative. It would be a place where artists could band together, volunteering their efforts and paying monthly dues to keep costs down and cover necessities like rent and bills. Most importantly, it would be a place where members could exhibit their work month after month in a gallery environment. Working from examples elsewhere, including an arts cooperative in Ferndale, members of the fledgling group met for over a year hammering out details as they waited for their new building to be constructed. It was well worth the wait. Arcata Artisans’ front row seat on the plaza is cred-

ited as one of the driving forces behind the group’s 10 percent growth in sales each year for the last three years. Another key to the organization’s 10year tenure is that members “don’t have to pay someone to mop the floor, write the paychecks or do the books,” member Joyce Jonté says. The cooperative was designed to survive in the event that it made no sales at all. Every new member has to kick in a hefty $300 starting fee. Each member also works eight hours a month at the shop, pays $60 in monthly dues and hands over a 20 percent commission on sales. Indeed, things have gone so well that members actually get a yearly rebate on their dues, sometimes up to $300 or more. “It’s a fabulous way to run a business!” says another member, Mimi LaPlant. It’s also a relationship, with 32 people playing a part, and any relationship has its ups and downs. Initially, during the anxious first years, arguments centered on a gift shop versus art gallery debate. Some members wanted the clean lines, conceptual works and open white spaces typical of a gallery. Others thought that the only way to succeed was to pack in small-scale items based less on ideas and more on meeting the bottom line. If the difference between art and craft is concept however, Arcata Artisans is doing a fine job of exploring, and exploiting, this creative continuum. Beyond having a place to consistently show WHAT, YOU MEAN THIS WASN’T work, members of the ON YOUR SHOPPING LIST? cooperative have learned a PHOTO BY KEN WEIDERMAN


thing or two about the business side of art. “It’s a rare interface with the public,” member Joy Dellas explains. Many artists love making their art because it feels good, and selling the work can be a real challenge if promotion is not an artist’s strength. The supportive community atmosphere among members, along with continually displaying and getting public feedback on their work, creates a “stimulating stew to be swimming in,” muses Lowry. So stimulating, in fact, that even low-selling members are proud to be a part of the education and inspiration the cooperative provides. Another benefit for members is the somewhat informal environment of the gallery. Shoppers at Arcata Artisans enjoy the smaller, more affordable works as well as the larger pieces. As a result, members can experiment with new formats or subject matter without feeling like their work will be judged as critically as at other “high-art” locations. Dellas sees this experimentation as necessary not only for the artists, but for the entire shop as well. “In the first five years we were high key,” she notes, “like a deer running for its life as opposed to the wolf running for its dinner.” Everyone was open to new ideas and looking for ways to keep their edge. Now, with a streamlined process and 10 years of proven achievement, some members are turning a critical eye to the shop’s next steps. They’re thinking of refining the shop’s look, tweaking advertising or even having “inventory reduction” sales during the slow winter months. Art can be a business after all, and businesses, like art, thrive when they change and evolve. ●

The Pinnacles Condor Experience By Barry Evans


hile many of us are enraptured with our local bald eagle fledglings (http:// humboldt-bay-eagle-cam), California condors are making a slow but steady comeback from the brink of extinction a few hundred miles away. Visitors to the nation’s newest national park, Pinnacles, have the rare opportunity to see condors in action. The park is one of two release sites in California (the other is near Big Sur), and currently more than 30 free-flying, but closely monitored, condors make the park their home. The remnants of half of an extinct volcano can be found in Pinnacles, about 80 miles southeast of San Jose. The other half is nearly 200 miles away. Soon after its formation 23 million years ago, Neenach Volcano split in two along the San Andreas fault system. Since then, the western half has crept northward about half an inch per year, during which time erosion has reduced the once-towering half-volcano into a series of sculpted rock formations — hence “Pinnacles.” Here, angular chunks of rock and gravel are cemented into a tightly knit matrix known as breccia. The unusual igneous composition (andesite and rhyolite) of Pinnacles breccia exactly matches that of rocks found 200 miles to the south, near Neenach in Los Angeles County. This fact was used to bolster the then-newly minted geological theory of plate tectonics in the late 1950s. Although the volcano is long dormant, seismic activity associated with the fault zone is still commonplace. One serendipitous result of the ever-shifting earth is the creation of two enticing talus caves, where enormous boulders have fallen into narrow gorges, wedging themselves into cracks but leaving sufficient space underneath to walk or wiggle through. Since colonies of Townsend big-eared bats breed in the

caves, they’re off-limits to visitors during pupping season. On a recent visit to Pinnacles, my wife and I were treated to the sight of half a dozen of the huge raptors circling and swooping in updrafts above “Condor Gulch,” looking for carrion. One even posed fearlessly nearby, which amazed us until we read that this particular condor had spent most of her life in a breeding facility in Portland. Hatched in May 2011, she was released in the park last February. Bird number 626 “is the most submissive bird of the 2013 cohort, spending a lot of her time away from the other juveniles in the pen,” according to the California Condor Recovery Program website. After reaching sexual maturity at 5 or 6 years old, female condors usually lay a single egg each year. The birds mate for life and typically live at least 50 years. Pinnaclesreleased condors are currently caring for hatchlings at three nests in or near the park. These near-extinct birds — only about 400 remain, half of which are in captivity — deserve our care and protection. Their particularly strong digestive juices have made them vulnerable to lead shot and bullets in the dead animals on which they often feed. Additionally, power lines, poachers, habitat destruction and egg collecting have all taken their toll, so the long-term future of California condors is still far from assured. If you’re not convinced that these magnificent birds are worthy of our care and protection, a visit to Pinnacles National Park will convince you. As you watch these great creatures, whose 10-foot wingspan is the largest of any North American bird, soaring overhead, your heart may soar with them. l Barry Evans ( plans on returning as a condor in his next life.

By Jennifer Savage If you are a straight person, do you wonder if the awesome-sounding gay event participants would welcome you? Does that make you gay? No, but does it matter? I mean, you like to dance, right? And you’re not going to get all weirded out because boys are dancing with boys and girls are dancing with girls? (And you’re not going to get a skeevy hard-on because you think girls dancing with girls is about you, right?) (Speaking of you, you’re going to this thing because you like a great time, yes? Not because you’re looking to be the

piñata in a room full of people waiting to hit on you?) Great. So we’re cool? Because this Saturday, Where’s Queer Bill presents “Life’s a Beach,” a big ol’ dance party at Nocturnum Nightclub. If the above list of questions didn’t make it clear, please note, this is an LGBTQ event. A portion of the cover charge benefits Humboldt Pride’s 2013 Parade/ Festival, “The Year of the Ally.” So be an ally! Cover’s $5, doors open at 9 p.m., the party is for those 21 and over. Other things to note about the night: the wearer of the skimpiest beach outfit wins a prize, as

does the winner of the dance contest. DJ Razorburn spins.

Do you like to hang with the cool kids?

If you wax nostalgic for the days of lo-fi DIY post-everything indie band experimentation, the days before the Internet made everything easy and you had to actually go to shows and search for records, the days of passing cassette tapes among friends because the concept of sending YouTube videos hadn’t burst continued on next page continued on next page •• NORTH North COAST Coast JOURNAL Journal •• THURSDAY, Thursday, JUNE June 13, 13, 2013 2013

Do you like Plaza-based activities?

Oyster Fest blows up the Arcata Plaza this Saturday. For the politics behind the bivalve scene, check your recent copies of the Journal (or, more efficiently, look online at Veterans know what to expect, which includes a new $10 entrance fee this year. First-timers will want to know that the general game plan for those excited about slurping variously sauced oysters down their gullets is to go as early as possible. The lines only get longer, the drunks only get drunker, the crowd (at least in the pre-$10 charge days) only grows more unruly. It’ll be interesting to see how the fee affects attendance and how the

presence of hip hop artist Lyrics Born at the fest affects the vibe. If you’ve spent any time listening to KSLG 94.1 FM, you’ve heard “Calling Out,” a tiny sample of the awesome that is Lyrics Born (aka Tom Shimura). He’s played Humboldt a bunch of times, both solo and as part of Latyrx with Lateef the Truthspeaker. If you’re unfamiliar, start at the beginning with his album Later That Day, work your way through to As You Were and show up to the plaza ready to have an amazing time. (Please, Oyster Fest crowd, be a good one.) If you’re too short on time for all that, here’s the key word defining a Lyrics Born show: exuberance. He takes the stage at 1:30 p.m. Full Oyster Fest schedule at

into existence yet, the days when knowing about an obscure band meant you had to really, really, really love them because being a fan was so much work, well, save your Saturday night, because TIGERBOMB! is coming to town. Who is TIGERBOMB!? Only Humboldt’s best ever Guided by Voices tribute band. Who is Guided by Voices? Glad you asked! GBV was an indie band that formed in the late 1980s, continued until the mid-1990s and popularized (as much as it could be said to have been popularized) a certain lo-fi aesthetic that also embraced postBritish Invasion garage rock, psychedelic rock, progressive rock, punk rock and post-punk. The band, masterminded by Robert Pollard, delivered a steady and seemingly endless stream of short songs throughout its existence. Catchy, odd, fantastic. TIGERBOMB! is made up of former members of Arcata/Eureka/L.A. bands The Cutters, Sin Men, Crimewave!, The Letdown, Sad Wings of Destiny, Foster Kids, Johnny Render, Natural Lights, The Perverts, Lowlights, The Craze, The Beatles and Hasselhoff — if you don’t recognize those names, you’re probably under 40 and/or missed one of Humboldt’s more golden eras of happening rock bands. All you need to know is, these musicians are good! Also, excited to return to the Alibi. Press release says, “This show promises to be a doozie! Expect the Alibi to be packed with new and old familiar smiling faces from current/former Humboldt garage/ indie/rock scenes!” The gig’s at the Alibi, so 21 and over, and also music doesn’t start till 11 p.m. or so. The good news is, you’ll have time for a nap beforehand. Finally, if you’ve been wondering what ever happened to MySpace (I have no idea why you would wonder that, but hey, perhaps you’ve already solved all life’s other mysteries), TIGERBOMB invites you to visit www.

Do you like combining music and doing good?

Meanwhile, over at the Arcata Playhouse, Saturday night brings “An Evening of Music & Storytelling with Brett McFarland and Spectacular Guests Berel Alexander and BangGarang” (did the Humboldt County Supervisors name this show?). All proceeds from this gig, which’ll cost you $5 to $15 depending on your generosity and means, benefit CASA of Humboldt County. According to the press release, Brett McFarland moved to Humboldt about 10 years ago and has been “growing organic vegetables, raising cattle and making Arcata more beautiful each day. His music is passionate and humorous, emotional and funky, while weaving stories of love, travel and heartache in Spanish, French and English.” Rounding things out, Arcata’s BangGarang knocks out “musically diverse electric folk-rock” and formerly local boy Berel Alexander brings his soulful sounds back home for what sounds like a perfectly lovely night. Everything starts at 8 p.m. and the Playhouse is all-ages.

Scantily clad souls parading on stage and DJ ItchieFingaz spinning the night away should make you want to get off the sofa on Monday night, June 17. The Va Va Voom Burlesque Vixens have unleashed their wildest dreams in FANTAISIE NOIR, and are sharing the stage with Paco Fish from Baltimore and Amber Ray from New York.

The first flurry of mad, Mad River Fest fun begins on Thursday, June 20, with the debut of Dell’Arte’s COMEDY OF ERRORS. The play features mistaken identities, death threats, fishmongers, a pissed off hooker, indoor grow fires, live music and songs from the Hot Plaza Band and much, much more. (Read more about the month-long Mad River Festival in Stage Matters on page 22.)

We all know you’ve been raring for a reason to show off your 10-gallon hat and shiny, new spurs, and on Friday, June 14, you’ll finally have that opportunity. Saddle up your pony, grab your buckaroos and buckerettes, and head to the 56th Annual Garberville Rodeo. The wildly western weekend kicks off at 4:30 p.m., Friday at the Greycliff Rodeo Grounds (just two miles south of Garberville) with the Open 4D Barrel Race, followed by the Bull-o-Rama at 7 p.m. The Bull-o-Rama challenges contestants to a onehanded, eight-second bull ride; if you like watching people fall, you won’t want to miss it. Saturday’s events start early, with a pancake breakfast at 7 a.m., under the Garberville Town Clock (the big building with all the arrows and numbers). With your cowboy-sized hunger sated, you can meander over to Getti Up on Redwood Drive in Garberville for the crowning of the Rodeo Queen and Princess. That’s right; rodeos are matriarchies. After the coronation, find yourself a comfy spot along Redwood Drive for the Rodeo Parade,

for you bivalve-shunners. This is where you want to be today. $10.

starting at 11 a.m. Rodeos, believe it or not, aren’t just for grownups. The Junior Rodeo starts after the parade, at 1:30 p.m., with check-in from noon to 12:45 p.m. The competition includes riding, roping and barrel races. But it wouldn’t be a kid’s event without some raucous mayhem, so stick around for the Animal Scramble and Greased-pig Competition (which are exactly what they sound like: kids chasing hard-to-catch animals). For the smaller tykes, there will be a pony carousel and petting zoo. After the children’s shenanigans, treat you and yours to a steak barbecue at 4:30 p.m. and then finish off the evening with some official bronco bucking at the California Cowboys Professional Rodeo Associations’ Rodeo at 7 p.m. The weekend draws to a close on Sunday with the California State Horsemen Association’s Gymkhana competition, starting at 9 a.m. For more information on rodeo events or registration, head over to — Dev Richards

The $10 price tag may be strange and new, but Oyster Fest 2013 promises to make this year’s event as bivalve-filled and beer-soaked as always (maybe even a little bit more). Center stage of the fest goes to the delicious, local Kumamoto oysters, of course, but the silver and slippery shellfish will have to share the glory with an impressive musical lineup and more than 30 food and beverage vendors offering their own summertime fare. Basically, on


Saturday, June 15, the world is your oyster! Oyster Fest overruns the Arcata Plaza from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., with bands and contests alternating throughout the day. DJ Stirfry Willie starts the day, and lays down the jams at 10 a.m., followed by the Oyster Calling Contest at 10:30 a.m. How do you call an oyster, you ask? Loudly and originally, that’s how. As the day gains momentum and people start to get in the true spirit of oyster festivities, Yogoman Burning Band will take the stage at 11:15 a.m. Whether you’re a hippie who likes to dance freely or a hipster who just wants to tap your feet to the beat, the eclectic dance music of Yogoman is sure to please. It’s a combination of jazz, soul and funk; but, mostly, just amazingly awesome. The Shuck and Swallow contest is at 12:45 p.m., and it’s always a crowd-pleaser; who doesn’t love watching people shove as many oysters down

their gullet as physically possible?! No one, that’s who. After that, everyone could use a little funky hip-hop. Lyrics Born performs at 1:30 p.m., adding a little more value to that $10 ticket. Winners for the best oysters will be announced at 3:30 p.m., and the last musical performance of the day starts at 3:30 p.m. with Motherlode. The group is described as “Greasy Soul Funk,” and should fit in with the celebratory vibe just perfectly. Last call for beer is at 4:30 p.m., and the event winds down at 5:30 p.m. We all know the party usually carries itself over to the bars along the plaza, so plan on really making a day of it.

Just try not loving Greta Gerwig. Impossible.

The Joy of Frances Ha Noah Baumbach’s delightful new comedy will make you smile By Dev Richards


FRANCES HA. The quirky, hipster ingénue is a trope that will probably last forever. From the flapper girls of the silent era through Annie Hall and Amélie, leading men have been tripping over themselves to win the hearts of girls with that certain je ne sais quoi. Frances Ha, the latest from writer/director Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale) takes this theme and bends it back on itself. Frances (Greta Gerwig) is closer to 30 than 20, and she still doesn’t have things figured out. After breaking up with her oversensitive boyfriend and parting ways with her best friend/roommate, she struggles to find her footing in New York City. She’s broke, mildly talented and cluelessly precious. But beneath her quirkiness is a girl who’s flawed and aimless. Co-written by Baumbach and Gerwig, Frances Ha is less about the boys who fall for Frances and more about Frances’ need to understand herself. The plot largely focuses on the failing plutonic relationship between Frances and her best friend, Sophie (Mickey Sumner). This twist is a breath of fresh air compared to the standard romantic comedy scenarios. The film does have a romantic bent, with an ending that ties everything up neatly and

adorably, but romanticism, in this case, is more of an undercurrent. Gerwig is dynamic and adorable, though her delivery of dialogue is often hit or miss. She masters the goofier aspects of Frances with ease: playful slapfights, awkward silences followed by weird noises and skipping with joyful abandon. Charismatic and dominant, Gerwig pulls you into Frances’ inept, black-and-white world, making her New York your New York. Her every uncomfortable moment makes you fidget in anticipation of her next bad decision. But she eventually wins you over with giggles. Frances Ha is a short and sweet jaunt through the world of someone else’s irresponsibility, which is refreshing when compared to your own irresponsibility. Baumbach and Gerwig don’t bog the film down with fantastical opinions on love, or the sort of clichéd complexity usually reserved for these sorts of coming-ofage tales. Instead, they let their lead flounder, and in turn they welcome the whole audience to flounder with her. I’ve never floundered more delightfully. R. 86m. THE PURGE is your average story about a boy, his severed-head robot

and their 12 hours of cringing and hiding from binge violence. In 2022, America has come under new political rule. The New Founding Fathers have rolled out a sweeping policy that has nearly eliminated crime and unemployment: Once a year, for one night, the country is allowed to go into a criminal free-for-all, no questions asked. Those who can afford decent protection take refuge in their well-secured homes while the poor and homeless are left to fend for themselves. The Sandin family belongs to the privileged group. The father, James (Ethan Hawke), is the lead salesman for a home security company, so their safety should be guaranteed. But when his son Charlie (Max Burkholder) gives asylum to a homeless man who’s being hunted, the family’s cozy life gets turned upside down. Writer/director James DeMonaco has tried his hand at action/thrillers in the past, and this is his second attempt with Ethan Hawke (they teamed up for the 2005 remake of Assault on Precinct 13, another movie about people trapped inside by other people with guns). Oddly enough, DeMonaco also co-wrote the goofy family comedy Jack (1996), which is hands-down a better film than The Purge. DeMonaco’s first flaw was setting the film a mere nine years in the future. Low budget sci-fi writers always seem to overestimate the speed of paradigm shifts, which kills any semblance of believability. Perhaps DeMonaco wanted to strengthen the allegorical slant. What a wasted effort. The plot constantly lectures about the dangers of demonizing the poor. By beating this point to death (literally and bloodily), DeMonaco turn his film into a bad farce, one that makes serious social issues seem blasé and annoying. As heads of the Sandin household,

Hawke and Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) give energetically tense performances. And Rhys Wakefield’s “Polite Stranger” is aristocratically sinister. But the rest of the performances are as flimsy as the plot. And with such a didactic story, nearly every character serves an over-obvious purpose. Wakefield, Heady and (just barely) Hawke are the only actors able to shake off the stereotypes and provide any real thrills. The Purge might have worked better as an episode of Twilight Zone or Outer Limits, but it fails as a feature-length movie. If DeMonaco insists on pushing weak storylines then he’d be better off returning to family comedies. Fart jokes beat pointless violence every time. R. 85m. – Dev Richards


MAN OF STEEL. In 2006, the world spent $391 million to see Superman Returns, then collectively shrugged and forgot about it.

Starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and (excited squeal) Michael Shannon as the villainous General Zod. PG13. 143m. THIS IS THE END.

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.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of: LOUIS ALLEN FLEURY, aka LOUIS A. FLEURY, aka LOUIS FLEURY A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by GREGG FLEURY in the Superior Court of California, County of Humboldt.

The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on June 20, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at the Superior Court of California, County of Humboldt, 825 Fifth Street, Eureka, in Dept. 8.
