permit annually. However it is only a licensing board. Business licenses are still issued locally (and, at least in Eureka, one still has to be signed off annually by EPD to renew that). If any illegal activity occurs in conjunction with a massage business, complaints and investigation are very much in the hands of local law enforcement (just like if you have a driver’s license and do something illegal) and to say that all complaints have to be sent to Sacramento for action is absurd. Yes, criminal complaints should be sent to the CMTC by local authorities so licensing can be dealt with but that’s a different matter. And please drop the “nudge, nudge, wink, wink” comments about massage practitioners — it’s an insulting display of your ignorance. David Schlosser, Eureka

its first line: “The information contained in the document is confidential as it involves personnel matters. As such, please use discretion with the information in this email and attached document.” In his declaration, Madsen writes that he had not read the rest of the email or the attached “reorganization blueprint” as of signing the affidavit. But Madsen’s report indicates he began hearing “mutterings about the document” from city employees the week of Oct. 20 and later heard “almost everyone in City Hall was aware of the documents and had knowledge of at least the essence of its contents.” Madsen then began investigating the apparent leak. Through his investigation, Madsen says he was told by Councilwoman Melinda Ciarabellini that she gave a copy of the document to Day-Wilson over concerns it could result in litigation by those named in the “reorganization blueprint,” and because “the city attorney was one of those addressed in the document.” Madsen says he was told by two city hall employees — Personnel Director Gary Bird and former Community Development Director Rob Wall — that they received copies of the document from Day-Wilson. Bird told Madsen, according to the report, that Day-Wilson insisted Panos’ memo was a public document because it had been emailed to the council and consequently didn’t qualify as a “personnel matter.” When Madsen talked to Day-Wilson about Panos’ memo, according to his report, she said she was unsure how it was distributed to City Hall employees, telling him her copy was locked away in Bird’s files, along with a hostile workplace complaint filed on Day-Wilson’s behalf by Councilwoman Linda Atkins. Madsen says he then followed up with Bird, who maintained his story that Day-Wilson gave him and Wall copies, adding that Atkins’
has never filed any hostile workplace complaint on Day-Wilson’s behalf. “He further informed me that Councilperson Atkins had never asked for such a file to be created and only (Day-Wilson) could ask for such a file to be created, which she had not,” Madsen states in his report. Madsen says in the report that he later followed up with Wall, who said that after Madsen’s inquires about the leaked memo, Day-Wilson came into his office “and told him that ‘he had to have her back.’” Wall, according to Madsen’s report, said the city attorney instructed him that if anyone asked about his having seen Panos’ memo he should say that he had walked into Day-Wilson’s office on some other city business while she was not there and that, while waiting for her to return, he’d found a copy of the memo on her desk and read it. “He told (Day-Wilson) that he could not comply with her request as her story was not what happened and it was not the truth,” Madsen says in his report. The former councilman concluded that he’d obviously been lied to, either by the city attorney or by two “long-term and trusted city employees.” Madsen states that he felt Bird and Wall had no motivation for lying to him about the memo, and that he believes Day-Wilson had not only lied to him but had also attempted to get Wall to do the same. “I believe the city attorney’s behavior was/is unethical and is a breach of good faith and of the contract with the council.” “Consider this my dying declaration,” he writes in the report. “I do. … I declare that everything in this document is truthful and correct to the best of my ability and I am aware of the potential ramifications it may have on the person(s) named within and as a practicing Roman Catholic, the impact it would have on my own after life. I do not do this out of any feelings of spite or some unresolved contest but

solely out of concern for the people of the city of Eureka, its council and its employees.” So where exactly does this leave the city of Eureka? The answer is a bit complicated. University of California Hastings College of Law professor David Levine said the accusations contained in Madsen’s affidavit and report are serious and troubling. If Madsen’s information is true, it seems the city would have little trouble firing Day-Wilson for violating her duties, both by disseminating the confidential document to city employees and then by lying about it. But, Levine said, Madsen’s affidavit likely wouldn’t hold up in a court of law, so the city would have to corroborate Madsen’s claims through an independent investigation in order to protect itself in taking any action against Day-Wilson. Levine said it’s also potentially a matter the California State Bar could pursue as Day-Wilson is alleged to have violated the duties owed to her client, but again, Levine said the bar would have to conduct an independent investigation to corroborate Madsen’s allegations before it could take any action. Madsen makes clear in his affidavit and report that he’s leaving the matter in the council’s hands to “toss,” “act on” or “ignore.” But it’s also clear from Madsen’s report that the council is already somewhat divided on the issue. According to the report, Madsen consulted an attorney specializing in human resources litigation after he felt he could no longer trust Day-Wilson. The attorney suggested the council discuss the matter in closed session. It was agendized, according to Madsen, but never discussed, as “two council persons walked out in defense of the city attorney and in protest over using (an outside attorney).” Madsen does not identify which council members left the meeting. While most cities leave the power to hire and fire a city attorney to the city manager, Eureka’s charter specifies that its attorney works for and serves at the pleasure of the city council. In addition to raising the questions of who lied to whom and what should be done about it, Madsen’s documents also
paint a picture of Eureka City Hall in dysfunction. While Panos — a controversial figure in City Hall for his brief tenure on the North Coast — apparently dubbed his memo a “reorganization blueprint,” Madsen notes that city employees referred to it as his “hit list” and that its contents were apparently alarming enough that they led somebody to place anonymous weekend phone calls to at least two department heads warning them of their inclusion on the list. Reached in his new Wyoming office, Panos largely declined to comment on his final memo to the council other than to say it was intended for council members’ eyes only. Panos said he prepared the document at the council’s request in order to provide an update on his continued efforts to reorganize city government and to suggest a path forward, but said it never should have been distributed to city employees. “None of us should be speaking about it,” he said. “It’s a personnel matter.” The whole situation seems to constitute a bit of a mess for Greg Sparks, Eureka’s new city manager, whose first day on the job was last month. Sparks, who stressed that he is intent on focusing on the future and moving the city forward, said the council is taking Madsen’s information under advisement. “They haven’t directed anything as a result of this,” he said. “Obviously, they view it as an employer-employee issue and it’s probably a little bit of uncharted territory for a council to deal with when you have an affidavit from a deceased former council member. I think the council will be determining a course of action here in the weeks ahead.” For his part, Cooper said Madsen simply wanted the full council to have all the information he’d compiled about the situation. “This was just something that really ate at him,” Cooper said, “and he really felt that, for the city’s benefit in a number of ways, it should be looked into by the council. I don’t think he ever intended his information to be the final word, but enough to spur them to do a real and thorough investigation.” ●

Flamingo Gulag Archipelago
ith summer vacation officially kicking-off for hundreds of North Coast families, area tourist attractions are girding for an influx of eager nature-lovers. Sure to be found atop many itineraries will be the glorious sights and sounds of the Sequoia Park Incarceration Facili – er, the Sequoia Park Zoo. The first thing you’ll notice upon entering the zoo is that each of the graceful, long-legged birds in the Pink Flamingo Exhibit is lovingly tagged and tracked by zoo staff with its own, individually numbered leg band, evoking absolutely no parallel whatsoever to the “numbering” of prison inmates — nor, for that matter, the numbered tattooing of concentration camp victims So don’t even go there, Mr. Aleksan Solzhenitsyn. And no, smarty-pants, that wire fence you see surrounding the entire perimeter of the flamingo pond is not intended to harm the birds in any manner whatsoever! It is there for the birds’ own protection, Sherlock. It is simply installed to ensure that not a single, solitary flamingo — which natively would enjoy a glorious tropical habitat stretching tens of thousands of acres through unbridled, sun-drenched wetlands — will ever escape the gloomy, parking-lot confines of its exhibit. Even

though said exhibit is slightly smaller than nature would intend, measuring — based on this columnist’s rough calculations — about the size of the continental breakfast bar at the Redding La Quinta Inn. Now then, all that walking around the security perimeter got you hungry? Look no further than the zoo’s Funky Monkey Cafe. There, visitors are invited to lovingly bite into the butchered, seared flesh of any number of our furry and feathered friends. Try a chicken sandwich, then “walkoff” lunch as you take the family over to the petting zoo. There’s really nothing quite like that satisfied, omnipotent feeling of strolling among a barnyard stocked with sheep, goats — and, yes, chickens and hogs — whilst digesting the chicken-bacon club sandwich prepared for you by zoo staff, a mere five minutes hence. But do mind your manners: As the website for the Sequoia Park Concentra — I mean, Zoo — is quick to admonish its guests: “Refrain from chasing or holding barnyard animals (including chickens).” Don’t tell PETA, but handling the chickens is all good if they come wrapped snugly within a hoagie roll and garnished with tomatoes, lettuce and mayo.
Blue Lake Headed For Epic “Fall”? If Santayana’s maxim about history’s doomed repetition holds true, the city fathers of NoHum’s dinky, casinoed outpost should take heed: The riverfront burg appears headed down the same dark corridor trod by Caesar Augustus. True, the decline and fall of the Roman Empire remains something of a whodunit to this day. But beard-scratchers who have studied the matter tend to lay blame with three primary culprits: Bread, circuses and rent-a-cops. The wealthy Roman populace was lulled into complacency by too many MMA-style gladiator fights, basically, and by a governmental decree allowing every citizen a daily loaf of Roman Meal. Well-fed and entertained into a passive stupor, the Roman citizenry contracted-out border defense — a privilege formerly reserved for only gentry and high-government officials — to Barbarians, or mall cops, essentially. The bottom line is that Nero fiddled while the corpulent, robed masses slept

off a food coma. Well, take some dirt-cheap grub, mix in a couple tough-guy cage fights and hand over peacekeeping duties to the sheriff and — voila! — I’m looking right at you, Blue Lake. It’s no secret that the town’s municipal budget lives and dies on revenue from its behemoth casino (read: circus). A few generations from now, Chinese archeologists will note that Blue Lake eliminated its police department a half-dozen years ago. To facilitate the continued feeding of dollar bills into the Lucky 7 machine unfettered, Humboldt’s green-shirted mall cops — er, deputies — confirmed in a press release last week their ongoing duty of policing the city of Blue Lake. The “bottomless plate” breakfast buffet at Alice’s Restaurant completes the grizzly trifecta.
What OJ and Bodhi Know It was 20 years ago this month that O.J. Simpson’s white Bronco led a crawling stampede of squad cars down Los Angeles’ 405 freeway, captivating a global TV audience in a spectacle that — following the televised Trial of the Century — culminated in the Juice’s acquittal for the alleged fatal knifing of his ex-wife and her beau. Lost amid trial judge Lance Ito’s freakshow media circus was an overlooked O.J. Dream Team defense strategy that carries an eerie echo for the plight of Bodhi Tree, Humboldt’s frizzy-haired homicide suspect. Perhaps even more crucial than Johnnie Cochran’s infamous stunt with the ill-fitting bloody glove, the main reason Orenthal walked was because those closest to the crime scene simply couldn’t talk. It would appear Tree was taking notes. In the days following the Brentwood double-homicide, Robert Kardashian — the late patriarch of everyone’s favorite reality TV siblings — was the closest person on the planet to Simpson, secluding O.J. in his Los Angeles McMansion, where, one imagines, they commiserated over Michelobs. As law enforcement bore down to effect the Heisman Trophy winner’s arrest, Kardashian even was photographed ditching a garment bag that cops believe held the football great’s blood-soaked clothes. Kimye’s dad would certainly have been
subpoenaed to divulge the contents of that bag in Ito’s courtroom, but for a stunning technicality: Sensing his imminent 15 minutes of fame as the prosecution’s star witness, Kardashian — a retired attorney at the time — quickly re-upped his law license so he could pose as one of O.J.’s defense team. Defense attorneys (under virtually all circumstances, anyway) cannot be forced to take the stand against their own clients. Ergo, you literally can get away with murder if you surround yourself with people who won’t — or in Tree’s case, can’t — squeal. It’s no coincidence that the snake pit of corruption that is our nation’s capitol contains vastly more attorneys per square foot than any other locale in the U.S. (Grand jury insurance, anyone?) No, deadbeat Bodhi Tree isn’t mobbed up with attorney buddies. But if the Garberville native ends up walking on his double-homicide rap, he’ll owe his freedom to the reality that crucial witnesses — like Kardashian in O.J.’s case — can’t be compelled to testify. As reported in the Mad River Union, a pair of key witnesses in Tree’s alleged attempt on the life of Eureka’s Rhett August — one being August himself — “don’t remember” or “don’t recall” really much of anything, largely due to the testimonythwarting effects of “heroin-induced memory loss.” In other words, for all the utility of their corroboration, the most vital figures in People vs. Bodhi Tree might just as well be the defendant’s own attorneys. And with the scene of the Arcata double homicide producing no pertinent eye witnesses — they’re either dead or weren’t present for the shootings — and no weapon having ever been located, witness testimony is the only glue holding this thing together in the first place. Tree’s prosecution is expected to go to the jury later this month. Should his speechless-witness gambit work, Tree could be out on the Eureka Municipal Golf Course “searching for the real killer” sometime this July. l

owed us the money. Dumbfounded and dismayed, families wept and raged at our medical billers. One of our employees resigned, partly because she felt she could not continue in a job that was so hurtful to young families. After sending out patient after patient in tears, she decided the bad karma invoked by performing the duties required by the position could not be justified, and moved on to a happier job. When things reach a point where your employees feel like they will face eternal damnation just for doing their job, then the system is broken. Every time the company refuses to pay for a procedure, consultation or a medication, the company gets to keep the money! Every time the company suckers some poor clinic into accepting low rates, the company gets to keep the money. Every time the company “forgets” to pay a claim, the company gets to keep the money! Each time the company raises premiums, the company gets to keep the money! The worse the company behaves, the more money it gets. Are we crazy to tolerate such a system? The Affordable Care Act, despite the best of intentions, has fortified a monster. By mandating that everyone purchase insurance, the industry is stronger and feels emboldened to take even more advantage of patients and healthcare providers. Exponentially larger and more powerful than the agencies assigned to oversee it, the industry finds ways to circumvent and resist restrictions. This leech has gotten firmly latched on to the lifeblood of American medicine and is sucking money and energy out of medical care from all angles. How long are we going to stand for this?

am a local physician who has lived through some of the scenarios you describe in your article about Anthem Blue Cross and the roll out of Covered California (“Bait and Switch,” June 12), and it has been a nightmare. About half our patients have various types of insurance, so our office accepts nine different types of insurance, adheres to nine different contracts, and has nine different fee schedules. (Very confusing!) Three full time employees keep track of all this, and beg, bicker and bargain with various insurance companies to make sure we get paid. It seems that any reason is good enough to underpay us or deny payment. If we don’t catch the mistakes, we lose out, so we pay our staff members their hourly wage as they hold for insurance companies trying to address problems. Sometimes we call the California Medical Association to get help, and sometimes we yell at our insurance broker. We don’t bother calling the Department of Insurance or the Department of Managed Health Care because they are understaffed and overburdened. When you need to hire additional employees just to make sure you get paid for your work, the system is broken. Our office was also offered a significant pay cut to see Blue Cross’ Covered California patients, so we declined the contract. However, Blue Cross Covered California patients came in with deceptive insurance cards that looked identical to those of our contracted patients. We were also falsely promoted as contracted providers on their website. Our office and our patients did not find out who had Covered California Blue Cross and who had regular Blue Cross until bills were denied, and it fell upon my staff to inform patients that their insurance had not covered their costs and that they

Jail Death Investigated
Officials are investigating the death of an inmate inside the Humboldt County Correctional Facility. According to a news release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, at 2:40 p.m. on June 13 Eureka Police arrested 42-year-old Daren Ethan Borges “for being under the influence of alcohol and or drugs” and brought him to the jail. There, says the release, the Eureka resident “was medically cleared by jail staff and was placed into a sobering safety cell by himself.” Jail staff checked on Borges every 15 minutes, according to the release, and “at about 4 p.m., a correctional officer noticed the male was unresponsive and may not be breathing.” After jail staff attempted to revive the inmate, paramedics arrived and at 4:16 p.m. took Borges to the hospital, where a doctor pronounced him dead. An autopsy is scheduled for June 21. — Heidi Walters ● ENVIRONMENT
Sewage Spill Didn’t Spoil Oyster Fest
On the eve of Oyster Fest, the Humboldt Community Services District dropped a bombshell of a press release, alerting the public that a massive sewage spill occurred in the Humboldt Hill area and that some may have flowed into Humboldt Bay, spurring the California Department of Public Health to halt oyster harvests as of June 12. But the spill didn’t impact the festival, as the truckloads of mollusks to be consumed on the Plaza June 13 were all harvested prior to the spill.
Coast Seafood General Manager Greg Dale says the health department rescinded the shellfish harvesting closure after determining the spill wouldn’t impact oyster growing areas of the bay. Water samples taken June 13 confirmed no impact to the farming areas, Dale says, adding that there isn’t much water exchange between the south and north parts of Humboldt Bay due to the way water flows in and out of the bay’s entrance. — Thadeus Greenson ● ENVIRONMENT / NATURAL RESOURCES
EPIC Finds a New Director
The venerable (and not-always-loved) Environmental Protection Information Center is undergoing a “restructuring” that includes the departure of executive director Gary Graham Hughes. Natalynne DeLapp, who has been with EPIC since 2008, most recently as the organization’s development director, took over the executive director position June 15. She said the change in leadership was a unanimous decision by EPIC’s ninemember board of directors. “The decision was made to increase our efficacy and efficiency in order for us to carry out our mission and goals,” she said. EPIC plans to redefine its role in the sixcounty community it serves, DeLapp said, and re-evaluate what areas of the environment most need protections: “Trespass grows on national forest land; fire suppression and how are we going to build a fire resilient forest; the biggest issue, of course, is climate change,” she said. — Grant Scott-Goforth ●
It was a rough room. At both ends of the long table in the window at Mazzotti’s on the Arcata Plaza, judges were bemoaning an entry with over-seasoned and undercooked bread and wondering aloud who would plate up closed clams for a competition. The annual competition for best raw and cooked oyster, as well as non-oyster dish, was four contestants in. Judge and local caterer Brett Shuler, in his white chef’s jacket, a pair of sunglasses on his head, surveyed the plates and shells on the table. “We haven’t had our minds blown yet,” he said. A volunteer swooped in with a tray of Thai oyster shooters with chopped lemongrass, setting off a buzz in the room. Some liked the dainty shot glasses, but the tartness and texture were overpowering for others. Shuler compared eating the bits of lemongrass to “chewing on toenails.” Enormous Pacifics came dressed as baked potatoes, topped with bacon, bleu cheese butter and potato chips, and an elaborate model of the ruins of Atlantis circled a clutch of raw oysters hidden under a quail egg, sea urchin, at least three kinds of fish eggs and flecks of gold leaf. It drew gasps and camera phones. Judge Josh Wiley of Abruzzi called foul on the Atlantis entry (dubbed “Lost Riches Under the Sea”), saying he doubted whether the same dish was being shelled out on the plaza to the commoners. This led to a spirited discussion of the cost per plate. Worse than talk of disqualification was the suspicion of Costco seaweed salad in a non-oyster entry with raw tuna and avocado. Todd Lawson of the Shanty, formerly of Larrupin and Abruzzi, said that while it wasn’t bad, it was “like something you’d get at the airport.”
A raw Goose Point oyster topped with hamachi salad, masago and sesame ginger vinagrette won some of the hardest hearts on the panel, eliciting silence, then the scratching of pencils. Hot on its heels was a barbecued oyster blanketed with a warm and creamy cashew-mint butter, lemon and shiso by the same entrant. Sushi Spot won both the raw and cooked categories with its hamachi and cashew entries, while Kyoto won best non-oyster with its Korean-style Kobe beef skewers. Their duties finished, the judges headed onto the plaza, where the party was picking up with stilt walkers, giant puppets and people lined up for some fresh oysters — maybe with a little garlic and butter. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill ● Government
Commission turnover continues
Humboldt County has a new planning commissioner. On June 17, 5th District Supervisor Ryan Sundberg advised the board that he has appointed former long-time Willow Creek Community Services District Manager Steve Paine to the county planning commission to fill the post vacated by his last appointee, Susan Masten, who has resigned after serving for three years. Paine, who served as the WCCSD director from 1999 to 2004 and its manager from 2004 until his retirement in October, said he looks forward to giving Willow Creek a voice on the commission and working to build consensus among its members, encouraging them to set aside differences and find middle ground. —Thadeus Greenson ●

very election cycle the specter of dark money looms, rumors of wealthy cabals silently shaping national and local races flit around the collective, politicsfried consciousness, and boogeymen lobbyists haunt the dreams of regular, down-to-earth voters in every political bloc. But politics is money. That’s just the reality, whether it’s furthering legislation or legislators. And sometimes, even those most distrustful of government say “fuck it” and throw their financial might into the fracas. That’s what’s happening right now around Northern California, as a brandspanking-new political action committee is rallying support from U.S.-OutOf-Humboldters to influence the latest round of state marijuana laws and form a collective voice within their communities. California Cannabis Voice formed on May 30, and organizers quickly raised an astounding $20,000 from 40 attendees at a June 3 meeting at the Harris General Store (located about 15 miles east of Garberville). The PAC, based in San Francisco, is the brainchild of Matt Kumin, an attor-
ney and political organizer who’s been active in civil rights work and medical marijuana policy for decades. With near statewide consensus that California’s medical marijuana policies are a mess, Kumin was inspired when the feds announced last year that they would back off of prosecuting statesanctioned medical marijuana. “Given the last August memo from the Department of Justice, it seemed clear we had to push hard this year to get a sensible regulation in place,” Kumin says. “Timing is everything.” The PAC’s main focus is a senate bill introduced by state Sen. Lou Correa from Santa Ana. Among other things, the bill as currently written would prohibit physicians that recommend marijuana from having a financial interest in marijuana dispensaries, set uniform health and safety standards, give oversight of dispensaries and cultivation to the state Department of Consumer Affairs and give cities and counties the ability to approve or deny medical marijuana licenses for dispensaries and cultivators. The Senate approved the bill unanimously at the end of May, and it’s currently being reviewed by the Assembly.

PAC a Bowl
Kumin thinks it will pass and be signed by the governor this year — ideally formed with the thoughts of members of the marijuana industry that the PAC is trying to organize. “I’m ready to go and start to influence and try to get lobbying and community input across the state to state legislators,” he says. With local control likely to be given to the cities and counties where dispensaries operate, Kumin says the PAC is organizing local leaders to work within their communities, as well as influence the senate bill through the work of the PAC’s Sacramento lobbyist. And he says money raised at the local events — he’s been reaching out to Mendocino and Trinity county interests as well — will stay within that community. “We’re able to give the power back to the local community — basically empowering local groups to take control and have some influence.” Kumin says California also needs to prepare for recreational legalization — he anticipates it coming to a statewide vote in 2016 — and said the cannabis industry as well as the communities where it thrives need to be active in shaping that legislation. “You have a massive billion dollar industry in this county and because of the criminalization of cannabis they have largely shied away from the political life,” he says. “They’re ready to do what the classic American thing to do is: You get involved in politics, you pay for lobbyists, you pay for organizers. You have a clear and hopefully unified voice in what you’d like to see.” l

Good Fire, Bad Fire As attitudes toward wildfire slowly change, we’re on the cusp of another hot, scary summer By Heidi Walters
hen Thomas Willson was little, his grandmother would send him and his two brothers outside each fall to light fires. “She’d give each of us a book of matches and we’d walk up to the top of the ridge then come back down, lighting fires all the way through the hazel brush,” Willson recalls. “There was very little fuel, and so the fire would just creep around.” The next spring, the burned hazel would send up first-year shoots from the fire-purified ground: straight, strong, flexible sticks which, if picked before their buds leafed out, were perfect for Willson’s grandmother Teresa Mitchell’s baskets. Willson, 51, reaches out to break a stem off a bushy hazel. It’s mid-June, and he’s standing on a forested slope just off State Route 169, a narrow, winding dead-end that departs from State Route 96 just past ABOVE FIRES LAST AUGUST MERGED INTO TWO MAJOR COMPLEXES IN THE KLAMATH AND SIX RIVERS NATIONAL FORESTS AND BURNED 37,000 ACRES.

Weitchpec and follows the Klamath River downstream to the northwest. Though it’s nearing the high 80s, the land here is still quite green because of its coastal influence; just a dozen or so miles inland, around Orleans and Somes Bar, temperatures are nudging closer to 100. A robin chortles nearby, and then a hermit thrush trills. But Willson is listening for the pigeons cooing, farther off. There’s one; used to be more of them when he was a kid, he says. Soft, early summer leafy plants, some popping with bright flowers, flood the ground at Willson’s feet, but the understory is still fairly open. This spot was burned last year. Nearby in these hills are three patches of clean, black-streaked ground and shriveling young trees, burned by deliberate fires this spring. But most of this downriver land west of Weitchpec cuts through a dense overgrown jumble of towering Douglas firs, maples, oaks, madrone, hazel, pepperwood and a brushy undergrowth of saplings and other plants. It’s the same throughout most of this mountainous region, from the Klamath Mountains south to Mendocino and beyond: choked landscapes where decades of fire suppression, development and logging have created kindling forests abutting urban pockets. Limbs, downed trees and duff have piled up. And this summer, two years of drought in, the

land is so tinder dry that fire managers are predicting what could be a fire season like nobody’s seen. Efforts are underway to alleviate the high fuel situation with more prescribed burns. In the meantime, communities and agencies are planning for the worst. There’s tons of dry fuel in the woods, a continued drought, and a fire season on our doorstep looking like it could be a mean one. Suppression is still going to be the main tool.
“This spot was all prairie
when I was a kid,” Willson says. And he has a copy of a photo from the 1890s, he adds, that shows even more woods-flanked prairie sweeping from here to a town a mile or so upriver. Willson is a commercial fisherman who also runs a guide service and rents a few cabins at his resort, Spey-Gee (Yurok for “fish hawk”), near here. This is the neighborhood where he and his brothers grew up hunting, collecting mushrooms, fishing, picking and peeling hazel sticks, mining willow roots and lighting fires for Gram. They weren’t supposed to be lighting those fires, according to the law. But they were simply doing what their people, the Yurok, had done here for centuries, treating the land with fire. Fire, applied routinely, burned at low intensity, refresh-

It also burned duff and the dropped acorns infested by moth larvae, reducing the hatch of moths that would fly into the tan oak trees to lay eggs and infest more acorns. Fire killed molds and other pests that affected berries and pepperwood nuts and other plants. Fire spurred the growth of bear grass, also used in making baskets. Fire kept forests from getting choked with brush and thickets of scrawny trees, and from taking over the prairies where the elk and deer grazed. And fire made a space around Yurok homes, helping protect them from wildfires. After the “Big Blowup” of 1910 — a two-day, multi-conflagration that burned 3 million acres across Montana, Idaho and Washington and killed 85 people — the fledgling United States Forest Service solidified its fire policy: All fires were to be stomped out, if possible. And native people were banned from conducting their traditional burns; most had stopped by the 1930s. But a few continued to do it until the 1970s, when Willson says the government cracked down on people like his grandmother. “They said they were going to put us in jail if we didn’t quit,” he says. “Then they called it arson.” The land grew choked with overgrowth. The majority of tan oaks acorns became
infested. Douglas firs, some planted for timber, took over prairies. Lately, the Yurok — like other tribes in the nation, including the nearby Karuk — have been bringing back traditional burn practices, working with a mix of state and federal agencies, community groups and private organizations. Last year, the Yurok Tribe did its first official cultural burn in decades. This May and June it did more, with more planned in the future. The Karuk, likewise, have been doing official culture burns. This return to traditional fire management is part of a larger shift happening in wildfire management, away from the full-suppression mentality and toward using prescribed fire as a way to bring the landscape back into a more fire-resilient balance. A century of suppression — a particularly wet century, at that, with massive vegetation growth — has led to tree-choked forests and massive piles of dead fuel on the land. Fires that do take hold — say in a dry year with lots of lightning — tend to grow larger and are harder to control. Some entities are already well on top of the prescribed burning method. Redwood National Park, notably, has been regularly setting prescribed fires in the Bald Hills for more than 20 years to restore the prairies once maintained by native people. But many agencies prescribe fire on a limited basis. They want, and some plan, to do more. The idea of increasing prescribed burns is that, if enough land is burned more regularly, at a lower intensity, there will be less fuel to burn when lightning, or a humancaused spark, strikes. These fuel breaks will make wildfires sweeping in from the backcountry less threatening, and therefore backcountry wildfires won’t need to be battled. They, in turn, would help achieve balance.
California Gov. Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency. In some parts of the state the 2013 fire season had never really ended, and by January 2014 even normally watery, lush Humboldt had already seen a couple of fires. In mid-May, Tom Hein, chief of CAL FIRE’s Humboldt-Del Norte unit, declared fire season had officially arrived. It’s typical this time of year in our northwest corner of California to have a high pressure ridge squatting off the Pacific Coast keeping us dry. What’s not so typical, says National Weather Service meteorologist Alex Dodd, out at Woodley Island, is to have a high-pressure ridge hovering persistently out there in the winter. But that’s what we’ve had, with but minor breaks, through the past two winters, he says, and it’s pushed the storm-
bearing jet stream far north of us. Last year ended up being the driest period on record in California. This year looks not much better. While the rest of California is drier, here in northwestern California we’re at 50 percent of our normal rainfall, says Dodd. Eureka, for instance, usually gets around 40 inches of rain in the winter; this year, it’s recorded just under 21 inches. Up in Crescent City, the winter rains brought just 32 inches, far short of the typical 63 inches. Dead fuels — downed trees and large limbs, which burn hot and slow — are at near-record dry levels, says Dodd. Live fuels — living plants, spring growth — are still green, but beginning to dry out. Talk of an El Niño winter is only semi-promising, because it’s uncertain yet if the event will be strong enough to bring wet storms to Northern California, says Dodd. But even if it shapes up to be a strong one, El Niño only affects the winter pattern, not the summer. Right now, there’s no rain in sight. David Markin, fire suppression chief for Six Rivers National Forest’s Orleans/Ukonom Ranger District, says it’s the driest June he’s seen in his 26 fire seasons with the district. As summer progresses, it’s likely only to get drier. Large, hard-to-control fires are the portent. In a letter to personnel in various agencies and community organizations, Klamath National Forest Supervisor Patty Grantham wrote that “most people realize we are in a drought, but I’m not sure how many realize how really serious it is with respect to wildfire potential.” “If current trends continue,” she added, “we may see conditions in Siskiyou County that no one living has ever seen. Makes you stop and think, right?” The Klamath forest is east of the Six Rivers National Forest and north of the Shasta-Trinity; the three meet in the mountains east of Willow Creek and the Hoopa Valley. Grantham urged the recipients of her letter to get the word out to people to “be vigilant and ready for lightning” and especially vigilant about human-caused fires. “As the saying goes, there is zero risk to homes, firefighters, citizens, natural resources, communities, etc., from the fire that never starts,” she wrote. Agencies such as CAL FIRE and its associated community fire safe councils, Six Rivers National Forest, the Bureau of Land Management and local volunteer fire departments are issuing instructions on how to deal with the drought and fire conditions. In the Six Rivers National Forest, for instance, special fire restrictions went into place June 16 to try to continued on next page northcoastjournal.com • North Coast Journal • Thursday, June 19, 2014

He adds if you’re planning to clear debris around your property, do it in the morning before 10 a.m. while there’s still moisture in the air, and be careful with equipment that could throw a spark. If you have to mow, use a nylon-twine mower. Don’t drive onto dry grass: Your catalytic converter is hot and could ignite it. And if you’re towing, make sure your chain doesn’t drag and cast sparks.

ficers to help close roads (including State Route 96) and evacuate residences when a human-caused fire in Orleans grew rapidly out of control. “Late in the evening they sent calls to Arcata police, Humboldt State University police, Eureka police and the Sheriffs’ Office to send officers,” said Sheriff’s Lt. Steve Knight. “All responded lightsand-sirens to assist with the evacuations because at that point life and safety were threatened.” This season, the Sheriff’s Office is retraining its officers on how to deal with wildfire responses, including how not to become victims themselves. It’s also planning to assign an officer to coordinate with fire personnel from the start, and it’s preparing for the possible use of the reverse 911 system to help alert people.

produce better grass and acorns. Members of this group are collaborating on a landscape-wide firemanagement strategy for a 1.2 million acre region between Orleans and Bluff Creek up to Seiad Valley, in Siskiyou County, and including the Salmon River and some of the Klamath. The plan, says Will Harling, with the Orleans/Somes Bar Fire Safe Council and Mid-Klamath Watershed Council, looks at where and how often fires have occurred across this region, determines how much fire might have happened in these areas if fires hadn’t been suppressed, and devises prescribed-fire treatments suited to restore that old balance. Almost 50 percent of these 1.2 million acres, notes Harling, hasn’t seen fire in more than 100 years. Some of this vegetation-choked land is near communities. The plan, says Harling, is to do more of the work local fire safe councils have already started: thinning, burning, clearing space around structures and roads, and adding more escape routes. “The Orleans Fire bumped up against some of our fuel treatments, a place where we’d recently been brushing and prescribed burning,” says Harling. “So that was effective.” Another training exchange this fall will focus on burning another 400 acres, mostly around Orleans. The all-encompassing, stakeholdercollaborated plan for that 1.2 million acres, meanwhile, will make the NEPA permitting process go faster, should the group get a big chunk of money to implement it. “Once we get our fuel breaks in place, and the community feels confident, then the forest service will have the leeway to let wildfires burn,” says Harling. “That will be when we’ve arrived.” Until then, they’re pecking away at
“I believe burning is very important culturally and ecologically,” says Yurok elder Harlan Alvarado. a machinist who worked in Nevada 40 years, Alvarado came home in 2007 and now fixes anything and everything for people up and down the river.

“There’s still a lot of tribal tension in communities over it,” he says.
Two years ago,
fire-safing the land and their communities. Locals are still jumping into the fray during wildfires, donning their own gear to show the non-local fire crews — a new batch every two weeks — where the best places are to put fuel breaks. Some gains are being made. Last year, for instance, the Karuk Tribe once again rolled burning logs down Offield Mountain — an act that used to be part of the tribe’s annual world renewal ceremonies. “It signified singeing our Mother’s hair — Mother Mountain — so she could mourn for all of those [who passed] during the year,” says Bill Tripp, the tribe’s eco-cultural restoration specialist. It was symbolic, he adds, but it also had a functional purpose: putting good fire on the land to help grow fresh medicines, food and weaving fibers. It’s a major step. After cultural burning was banned, in 1911, says Tripp, those who continued to do it were called “incendiary burners” and, sometimes, were shot for it.
Margo Robbins, 52, wanted to weave a traditional Yurok basket for her new grandbaby. She studied the one her own grandmother Minnie Reed, a renowned basket weaver, had made, and realized she didn’t have enough hazel sticks. She needed 75 4-foot stocks for the frame. She searched downriver but couldn’t find any because there was no place where the hazel had been burned. “I had to buy sticks,” she says. This spring, however, she was able to pick good sticks for her weaving — strong, flexible young shoots, shooting straight from ground burned last year in a prescribed fire the tribe and CAL FIRE crews set. And there should be even more sticks in time — and more acorns, bear grass, open prairie and so on — if the Yurok Tribe’s fledgling cultural burn program grows. After last year’s work, the tribe formed a new committee that’s much like a fire safe council but places special emphasis on cultural burning. The Yurok Cultural Fire Management Council, of which Robbins is president, is now involved with The Nature Conservancy’s Fire Learning Network, and this spring hosted a training exchange that burned around 50 acres in Tom Willson’s neighborhood (including some of his land). Kelleher, the burn boss, was there along with six others from Firestorm, as well as folks from CAL FIRE, For-

est Service districts in Oregon, Utah and New Mexico, Spain’s Ministry of Forestry (really!), and 11 from the Yurok Tribe. Five Yurok trainees ended up with firefighting jobs with Firestorm, including Willson’s 21-year-old son, Thomas Willson Jr. Willson, who is vice president of the cultural fire management council, says the tribe gets to work with the Nature Conservancy another four years. He expects they’ll double the amount of acreage burned each year in subsequent training exchanges. After that, Willson and Robbins agree, it would be nice if the council evolved into a nonprofit that could better spread the knowledge of prescribed burning, especially for traditional purposes, throughout the community and to young people. “We actually want our kids to take ownership of our lands,” says Willson. “Once they have ownership, they’ll care about it.” And maybe the tribe will someday take sovereign control of its own burn permitting, currently controlled by CAL FIRE. For Willson, who wasted most of his young adulthood on drinking and drugs until his grandmother helped him get sober, this has become his most important work. “The Creator put me here to take care of these lands, and if I don’t take care of them I don’t know what I’m going to tell the Creator when I get to him,” he says. “I’m supposed to make things better in my lifetime for the next seven generations.” l

y feet felt like tenderized beef and there was still a layer of sweat salt on my forehead. I had several new rips in my hiking pants and ritual scarification from aggressive blackberry canes. But, nine hours and some 16 miles later, we had arrived back where we started. Circumnavigating the northern portion of Humboldt Bay (technically Arcata Bay) on foot was my friend Riley’s idea. His office balcony had long distracted him with a tantalizing panorama from the Arcata Marsh to the bridges between the Samoa Peninsula, Indian Island and Eureka, to the Arcata Redwood Mill and Bracut Industrial Park and everything in between. He had mused about such a journey from the comfort of his desk, but I suspect it wasn’t until I signed on that the prospects got real. What better way to experience this beautiful place than at the speed of 2 miles per hour? We agreed to do our best to walk as close to the water as possible without trespassing on private property. However, there is no trail around the bay. While plans are unfolding for a trail along Highway 101 between Arcata and Eureka, it’s years away. Several braids of the California Coastal Trail have incorporated rather dubious links in their routes around the Humboldt Bay area (e.g., a water crossing from the North Jetty to the South Jetty). We reviewed maps and Google Earth to craft a tentative route, but still concluded that we would be wise to do some actual reconnaissance.
20 North Coast Journal • Thursday, June 19, 2014 • northcoastjournal.com
After our brief exploratory trip, we added rain pants, work gloves and hand pruners to our survival supplies. We resigned ourselves to crossing Eureka Slough on the highway rather than the railroad, and anticipated with some dread the bridges on State Route 255. The railings on the bridges were as low — and the traffic was as considerable — as we remembered. Walking out of the Arcata Marsh parking lot on South G Street early on the appointed morning, the ethereal fog lifted just enough to reveal the rising sun. The happy chatter of the avian community followed us until we reached the restored wetlands of the McDaniel Slough Restoration and Enhancement Project. We followed the levees through the Mad River Slough and Wildlife Area. This area is not open to the public and, for the most part, the three hours we spent getting to Mad River Slough involved picking our way through thigh-high brush, lupine and blackberries. There were times when we would scramble along the rock riprap that protects the bay side of the levee. As we went west, we encountered massive chunks of industrial concrete and old roadway used to buttress the dikes. We saw some of the remnant flocks of geese, evidence of river otter escapades and, of course, cows who eyed us warily as we passed. When we reached the old railroad bridge crossing the Mad River Slough, we took a break, changed out of
rain pants and put on dry socks and shoes. It hadn’t rained, but it couldn’t have been much wetter if it had. We followed the railroad tracks and Peninsula Drive through Manila before the route, now much easier, returned to the shoreline. At last the sun poked through and quickly scattered the marine layer. “The time has come,” Riley said, “to talk of many things: of shoes, and ships, and sealing-wax, of cabbages and kings.” Among the many attributes of walking is the chance to talk without rushing. And so we did as we admired the unveiling of the bay. Our walk was incredibly quiet, until we reached the bridges to Eureka. So different, I suspect, from the heyday of timber, fishing and the railroads around Humboldt Bay. (By the late 1800s there were some 400 lumber mills on the North Coast.) Riley and I noted the oyster beds, an egret rookery, the reclamation of Indian Island by the Weott people and a tall ship docked near the Adorni Center and teeming with school children. We stopped in Eureka for lunch. There was no mention of walking the extra yards into Old Town for our favorite haunts. My feet said it wasn’t an option. My hiking poles attracted some attention and probably some concern at the Mexican restaurant. In the end, the few other patrons and the staff were more curious (even envious) about our outing. In some ways lunch was counterproductive. On a full stomach, next on the agenda for a tired body is a nap. My body reluctantly commenced the home stretch. We retreated to the railroad right-of-way north of Eureka. Just two years earlier, I had helped organize a grassroots effort to “clear the way” along the tracks, and it was discouraging to discern so little lasting impact. Nature was reclaiming what little the tides were leaving behind. We made good use of our pruning shears and did lots of high stepping over the grasping, tugging blackberries as we hacked our way toward Arcata. Except for the drone of traffic on the safety corridor, there were stretches where you would not have been completely surprised to meet a lion or tiger or bear, oh my. Near the finish line was some of the worst of it. Perhaps it was just that the wild undergrowth impeded the triumphant march to the marsh we’d visualized. A warm bath and some Vitamin I(buprofen) did wonders for my perspective on our adventure. As the days pass and I reflect on our journey, I marvel that all this is right in our backyard. I have even started to wonder, “Why not walk the rest of the way around?” l
Bitchfests and Love Nests Welcome to the department of complaints By Jessica McGuinty
My best friend has been with her boyfriend for a few years, and for the last year all she’s done is complain about him. He doesn’t abuse her, it’s not that. She’s just always bitching: Either he doesn’t pay her enough attention, or he’s smothering her or he’s annoying the crap out of her talking about his life. She never says anything positive. I try to be a good friend and listen, analyze and provide feedback, but it’s getting tiresome. I tell her she clearly doesn’t want to be with him, but I think fear of being single keeps her from leaving. It’s affecting my willingness to spend time with her since conversations always turn into a bitch-fest about her man. I’m not sure what to do for her anymore. — Frustrated Friend
FRUSTRATED! I’ll never understand people who always want to complain about their partner. Isn’t this the person you welcomed into your life because he or she enhances it? Just griping about him or her shows a huge lack of respect, and I don’t understand staying with someone you no longer respect. I’ve found that often it doesn’t matter what the partner is doing, there are just people who always need drama and something to complain about. You say this behavior is affecting your relationship with your friend, so that’s a good jumping off point for a conversation. You’ve been yanked onto her merrygo-round and you want off. Understandable. You also want to preserve your friendship, so be gentle here. Tell her that all you want is for her to be happy, and that since a majority of your hangout time is spent listing the
ways in which her boyfriend is displeasing her, it’s hard to believe that she is. Maybe she hasn’t evaluated that for herself yet. It’s easy for people to stick with what they know rather than make changes and jump into the unknown. So start there, but then be prepared to offer up some tough love. “Friend, this constant complaining is draining to our friendship because it’s eating up our quality time together and nothing seems to change. I will always be here for you and help you through anything, but for my own sanity and the health of our relationship, I’m going to have to ask you to cease the griping. It’s not serving you or us. If you would be happier without him and decide to break up, I will buy the ice cream and rent the movies, but until then, let’s spend our time talking about something else.” She might not even know how much mental energy she’s spending on negative thoughts about her man, or how much it’s affecting your friendship. Reinforcing that you’ll always be there for her but need the merry-go-round to slow down will hopefully help her see what she’s been missing.
Last week I was enjoying a delightful afternoon visit from my boyfriend. Emphasis on the afternoon and delight. Then — right in the middle — my phone rang. It was my management company telling me about a noise complaint from my neighbors. A very graphic noise complaint. I apologized and noticed my bathroom window was open. Fast forward to this week and another delightful afternoon. Another phone call. Except this time the window wasn’t open, neither of us were particularly loud and I’m baffled by how my neighbor could even hear us, since our houses aren’t
attached. I barely see my boyfriend as it is, and damn it, I love my afternoon visits! I pay rent here! That nosy neighbor should just get some earplugs, right? — Delights Denied DELIGHTS! Oooo, this is a tricky one. Regardless of the time of day, nobody wants to hear other people, um, being delighted. It doesn’t sound like you woke this neighbor from a nap, but he or she just wanted to go on record as having heard you and not enjoying it. It is curious how that’s possible if your windows were closed and you’re not in an apartment, so it might indeed be that your neighbor is nosier than necessary and has little else to do. Not too delightful, eh? Clearly you deserve privacy since you’re adults in your own home. You also probably don’t want this to continue. I’d suggest cranking up some music, keeping those windows closed and seeing if that stops the noise complaints or shifts the focus to the music. If it’s an option, you could also move your delights to another part of the house — farther away from the overactive ears of that neighbor. ●

Farm stands around the county honk for service. Photo by Simona Carini.
By Simona Carini
rinity River Farm hugs Highway 96 about 2 1/2 miles north of Willow Creek. Its farm stand welcomes visitors with a “Honk for Service” sign out front. The late May sun shone brightly in the cloudless sky when I visited, but the temperature was kept to a pleasant level by a breeze that gently swayed the trees around the stand and neighboring old barn. I knew I would not find produce because the season starts in June, but I had the chance to get some eggs, browse the greenhouses teeming with starters of edible and garden plants, and talk to the farmer, Tom O’Gorman. On a photo collage hanging on the wall opposite the cash register I saw the evolution of the farm stand from the initial structure built in 1971 to now. A farm stand allows a more personal, usually more relaxed interaction with the farmer than the farmers’ market. It’s a shopping option on non-market days and can offer some special treats, like a perfectly ripe item too delicate or not available in large enough quantities to bring to the larger venue. The abundance of some fruit or vegetable — from apples, plums and peaches to tomatoes, green beans and more — inspires me to can or otherwise preserve it for later. Plum preserves or strained roasted tomatoes are my favorite antidote to short, gloomy days. Each farm stand is different in terms of what’s available, hours of operation and duration of the season. When I inquired about plans for the season for the farm stand,
the recurring answer was: It all depends on the weather — the great decider of what gets ripe when and in what amount. Hence, the dates are not set in stone. If you are making a special trip to a farm stand or are interested in a specific item, like raspberries, peaches, sweet corn or your favorite variety of tomato, call ahead. l City of Arcata’s Bayside Park Farm 930 Old Arcata Road 822-7091 www.cityofarcata.org Jayme Buckley Now until the end of October, every Wednesday noon-6 p.m. Vegetables and pick-your-own herbs, flowers and leafy greens.

In addition to the sounds of the carnival rides, there will be live music from Doug’s Neighbors, the Roadmasters and others on the center stage.

Food They say there are more grains of sand on Earth than there are stars in the sky. Besides, stars are great to gaze at, but you can’t really do much with them. Sand, on the other hand, can be made into art! The 19th Annual Sand Sculpture Festival takes to the beach on Saturday, June 21 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Manila Dunes Recreation Area (free to watch, $10-15 to register). Sand castles are great, but why limit yourself to something so traditional? This is a sand sculpture after all; it’s time to get creative. Put together your own team (at least two participants), grab a few supplies (pastry knife, paint brush, some sort of digging implement, etc.) and ignite that creative spark! You can build pretty much anything you want, but keep it clean — there will be kids roaming around. The categories for prizes include Best of Show, Most Imaginative, Best Youth Sculpture, the Golden Shovel Award and many more. This event is pretty damn popular, so parking can be an issue. Never fear, Friends of the Dunes is providing a free shuttle service from Manila Park to the Manila Community Center from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. You’ll have to walk in the sand for about half a mile to get to the festival proper, so be prepared to carry any weary toddlers. Friends of the Dunes recommends that spectators show up between noon and 2 p.m. for the best view of the sculptures. Here’s sand in yer eye! — Dev Richards

Double Down Jump Street and Dragon sequels win big
Hill and Tatum practice their Oscar speeches.
By John J. Bennett email@example.com
22 JUMP STREET. I find it hard to believe two years and change have passed since 21 Jump Street pleasantly surprised me with its quick-wittedness, scathingly foul mouth and flashes of emotional authenticity. It left me hopeful that something as unlikely as an ’80s cop show reboot might herald a positive change in the overall quality of Hollywood comedies. Time has done little to support that hope, unfortunately, but at least there is 22 Jump Street, that rare sequel that manages to outdo the original. I should warn you in the same breath that 22 thrives on the same witty crassness that, for me, made 21 work. So if it didn’t work for you the first time around, don’t expect anything about this one to change your mind. After an opening-sequence attempt at a different style of undercover police work fails spectacularly, officers Jenko (Channing Tatum) and Schmidt (Jonah Hill) find themselves back on Jump Street, under the withering gaze of Captain Dickson (Ice Cube). The headquarters have moved across the street since their last assignment, naturally. And an increased budget has provided them with a high-tech command center, lots of sweet new gadgets and, as he is quick to point out, a big-ass raise for the captain. The scenario stays the same this time out: Jenko and Schmidt are to go undercov-
er as college students, locate the source of a new designer drug called Whyphy and solve the drug-related death of a student. Jenko fits in immediately in the football and fraternity scene. Schmidt struggles in his absence until he befriends a beautiful art major (Amber Stevens). Separation strains the partnership, with Jenko drawn steadily toward the world of potential scholarships and non-stop partying by new soul mate/teammate Zook (Wyatt Russell). As in 21, the plot’s not really the thing. Actually, the fact that it hews so closely to the structure of the first one provides opportunities for a slew of self-referential humor, and almost all of it works. continued on next page June 20June 25

Somehow, the filmmakers have managed to make recycled material the source of a movie-length joke. This enables them to expand and deepen the irony and post-modernism of the first installment with crazy abandon. The result is a movie that retains its predecessor’s tone and cadence, but produces more laughs per minute, with an even greater degree of awareness and a harder edge. From a studio’s perspective, R-rated comedies can be a risky proposition: That’s a whole lot of tickets kids can’t buy. I like the fact that movies like this one — movies that refuse to tone down the jokes, that rely on mature humor — are finding their way into the light of day. Obviously this isn’t a grand cinematic achievement for the ages, but as it’s been proven time and again, movie comedy is a difficult, unforgiving medium. And in that regard, 22 Jump Street is a resounding success. R. 112m. HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2. Having gone into this one uninitiated, I had no expectations. Well, I expected to see Vikings flying around on dragons, and I did. More to the point, I was pleasantly surprised by the darkness and honesty of the story, the quality of the casting and the depth and detail of the visuals. I’ve been disappointed by animated movies lately, so this was doubly enjoyable. Some time after the events of How to Train Your Dragon, heroic young Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) explores the world beyond the island of Berk, actively avoiding the fact that his father Stoick (Gerard Butler) plans to anoint him as the clan’s next chief. In his travels he discovers first a band of rogue dragon-catchers, then an island dragon sanctuary tended by his mother, Valka (Cate Blanchett), long thought dead. This leads in turn to a conflict with a scarred and scary seafarer named Drago Bludvist (Djimon Hounsou) who has plans for vengeance and total dragon domination. Unlike most major animated releases, Dragon 2 boasts a cast of stars who appear to have been selected for their talent as vocal actors, rather than their marquee status. The plot takes us into some hard, dark places, and has valuable things to say about pain, commitment and growing up. The action sequences are huge and immersive, each frame filled with sometimes overwhelming detail. The movie does what I always hope animation will: It creates a richly envisioned, impossible other world that we get to live in for a while. And it accomplishes this with style, a sense of humor and an appropriate amount of gravity. PG. 102m. — John J. Bennett

wo reality-bending episodes of Star Trek: the Next Generation are standouts for me. In the final scene of “Ship in a Bottle,” a glowing cube not much larger than a pack of cigarettes contains an entire universe for two digital beings (unaware that they are simulations) to explore. In “The Inner Light,” Kamin wakes from a dream in which he was Jean-Luc Picard, captain of a starship — only to discover much later that it was no dream. Questioning the truth of existence goes back a lot longer than Star Trek, of course. Over 2,000 years ago, the Chinese monk Zhuangzi awoke from a dream in which he was a butterfly. It left him unsure whether he really was a butterfly now dreaming he was a man. French philosopher Rene Descartes wondered if a demon was feeding him fake sensations that he took for the real thing — anticipating the vat-world of the Matrix movies by nearly 400 years. Harrison Ford’s character in Blade Runner could never be sure if he was real or an exquisitely fashioned machine. More recently, did the top topple in the final scene of Inception? And for that matter, I bet your dream-self was unaware it was a product of your sleeping brain last night. Are you awake now? Are you real or a simulation? How do you know? Take the possibility that we’re the digital creations of a future generation of humans interested in running computerized “ancestor simulations.” Failing a spoiler (perhaps a pop-up saying, “You are a simulation, call this number for more information!”) we would be no more capable of knowing the truth than ants in an ant farm. In fact, according to one line of thinking, it’s highly unlikely that we’re not simulations. Here’s why. From a technical viewpoint,
creating a simulated brain in the future doesn’t seem to be that much of a stretch. The conscious experience of being alive appears to “emerge” from brains consisting of a few hundred billion interconnected neurons humming along at around a million billion operations per second. That’s beyond the capability of today’s computers, but surely feasible in the future. Assuming we manage to survive as a species, future generations will have the power (using a trivial amount of their computing capability) to fashion simulated worlds, not too dissimilar from the creation game SimCity and its variants, only far, far more sophisticated, populated with digital beings unaware of their artificiality. Just as a SimCity player can create limitless scenarios, our descendants will be able to do the same, such that virtual worlds will vastly outnumber real worlds. That means the odds that we’re simulations living in a simulated world are way higher than the “real world” alternative. Supposing you were convinced you that you were most likely a digital simulation — what would you do differently? My guess is, not much. Consider that millions of Buddhists and Hindus believe that appearances are unreal, yet nonetheless they eat, pray and love as others do. Simulated or not, conscious beings still feel pain and pride, anxiety and ecstasy. The way I see it is this: I am unaware of why I act and speak as I do. Neuroscience assures me that it’s “me,” my unconscious, that informs my feelings, words and deeds, but it might as well be some teenager in the year 2114 playing on her smartphone (watching my clumsy speculations) that give rise to the sensation of being me. And you know what? I don’t care. Life is sweet. Thanks, kid! l Barry Evans (firstname.lastname@example.org) has never been the same since reading Ray Bradbury’s The Veldt at age 12.

Drilling for glory at Arcata Plaza start (top) and crossing Humboldt Bay (bottom).
The Tempus Fugitives team, in all its glory.
At Slippery Slope (top) and Tempus Pilot MJ Mazurek (bottom).
Tempus Fugitives “We were aiming for world domination,” says Tempus Fugitives’ Sarah Smith. And she’s pretty much achieved that goal. Last month, the Tempus vehicle “Drilling for Glory” took the Kinetic Sculpture Race championship over Memorial Weekend. Again. In 2011, Tempus won the KSR ﬂying high on its “Time Machine.” Then TF went on to kinetic glory at Corvallis’ race in 2012 and Klamath Falls in 2013. “We never really thought we’d be that fast,” says James Smith, Sarah’s kinetic - as well as life partner. “We just tried to build a really efﬁcient machine, but one that supports big art. Tempus generally goes with steampunk-inspired art with literary allusions (like last year’s Kafkaesque “Apocalyptic Cockroach”). This year, Tempus returned back to the classic drill vehicle made famous through such cartoon cars as Dick Dastardly and Muttley’s #00 Double Zero – the Mean Machine with the drill nose. Tempus likes being the bad guys. And the Drilling for Glory
machine is to drill through the earth crust in search of the fabled Hobartium – the source of kinetic glory. The nod to Kinetic Sculpture progenitor Hobart Brown won over a lot of kinetic veterans. Futuristic design, speed and fun… while maintaining KSR’s roots probably had a lot to do with Tempus also winning this year’s Racer Award, chosen by fellow teams. “These guys are a total bore...they bore thru everything...including the awards!” jokes perennial racer Duane Flatmo about his competitors and their drill design. “ They’re a kickass team with all the elements to pull off such a victory.” Acclaim besides, Tempus relied on a solid chassis and over-six years of mechanical tinkering. But even more important was the crew - 13 hearty souls of hard workers. The team is comprised of the Smiths, pilots Jon Nickelson, Jacob Bailey, MJ Mazurek and all the pit crew Jessica and Dan Davis, Sandra Levinson, David Franklin, Logan Rose, Joe Labani, Tom Kirk and Michelle McKenzie.
“We looks for people who are good at showing up, having a great attitude, mechanical inclination and a willingness to sing and dance whimsically,” says James. You don’t have to be able to do all those things, but you need to do most.” Everyone has their own skills and assets,” says Pit Mistress Sarah, who’s charged with keeping everyone in line. All those bodies demand fuel… particularly the pilots in moving machine down the road, sand and water. And every year, Tempus Fugitives turns to Murphy’s to get them going. “Pretty much all of our team’s food for kinetic weekend comes from Murphy’s including the ingredients for Chef Dan’s famous Kahlua pork tacos,” says Tempus’s Jessica Davis (tacos that James refers to as “grubbin.’”) “Murphy’s has the best meat department in the county and we wouldn’t go anywhere else for our pork.” So what can kinetic fans expect from the Fugitives next year? James says the team is full of bad ideas. By Terrence McNally, Advertising, North Coast Journal
