Co-ops and Robbers Editor: Carl Ratner’s letter (“Mailbox,” Aug. 8) exposing the nefarious workings of the Co-op’s management and its hiring of an attorney from the law firm of Jackson Lewis, dedicated to a “union free workplace” and in bed with the Koch-funded Heritage Foundation, is spot on and well needs reading by those who frequent the Co-op. Mr. Ratner uses the term “neoliberal” to identify the law firm as a group, as well as the Heritage Foundation. I totally agree with this indictment, but some reading the letter will see no further than the term “liberal”, never mind what the “neo” means. The term liberal or Cartoon by joel mielke neoliberal (“new” liberal) however, used in the economic context in Mr. Ratner’s letare against unions and the benefits ter, is something very different from the those unions fight to preserve for the word “liberal” used in a political context, dwindling middle class.

EPD and Mental Health

Falls Lament

(National Alliance on Mental Illness.) Official notes from those sessions include 10 references to mental illness issues. After all that input, I was taken aback to read in the Times-Standard that the city’s choice was an officer who fatally shot Cheri Lyn Moore, a mentally ill woman brandishing a flare gun. Following Moore’s death, our group worked with mental health staff and police to increase training for first responders who deal with that population. Groups of 30 or more each year attend crisis intervention training sessions. I respect first responders and can think of many times when I’ve felt safer thanks to the presence of a policeman or woman. Maybe Johnson, who has withdrawn from the hiring process, could have been an effective police chief for Eureka. I’m skeptical, but I could give him the benefit of the doubt if he reached out to the mental health community. That would take a level of respect and communication not shown by writing off those who dare to raise concerns. Those who speak out usually represent others who didn’t call or email. Mental illness affects the lives of one in four adults in the U.S. NAMI’s website states: “NAMI works every day to save every life.” This is the “agenda.” Debbe Hartridge, Arcata

Tree Concerns Editor: I love trees. The planet needs more of them. There are, however, a number of problems with planting them up and down the sidewalks of Eureka (“Field Notes,” July 4). First of all, in a city with a climate as

cool as it is here in Eureka, the last thing we need is more shade. Next, there is the upkeep problem. In our neighborhood, the 1100 block of C Street serves as a prime (but not unusual) example of tree planting gone bad. The cutouts in the sidewalk have turned into ugly little weed patches and litter magnets that no one seems to care about. Then there are the pruning chores needed to keep them out of the telephone lines and in good health and the problem of dealing with fallen leaves that rot and turn into slippery globs; problems that will go on for many, many years. I don’t at all understand Natalie Arroyo’s claim (“Mailbox,” Aug. 8) that they make it safer for pedestrians and bicyclists. It seems to me to do just the opposite. Making sidewalks narrower only creates bottlenecks that push people and bicycles into closer proximity. The intentions of Keep Eureka Beautiful are fine and good and I do appreciate its efforts at beautifying the city, but trees and sidewalks really don’t mix well. Sorry to be so negative. Douglas George, Eureka

Magic Words Editor: I enjoyed the poem (“Sorcery”) in the North Coast Journal on Aug. 8. It expanded my horizon to the sea shore, and my vocabulary by four words, which I found in the dictionary. Thank you. Ursula Osborne, Arcata


Editor: Walking my dog this morning, I began lamenting the old days, and by that, I mean I miss being naive. When I was young, I held a belief in the good of the majority of people. I liked people. I was optimistic for the positive outcome in any situation that became the larger world’s problems. The world has gotten smaller because it’s my own, private, little world, and I am happy in it. It is good and I can control some of it and most of it reaches a positive outcome. Patience, time and less outside influence seem to be the key. Things left unmolested by human interference, generally greed, are by themselves benign, if not actually good. Good logging for healthy forests and wildlife habitat. Good marijuana farming by caring growers doesn’t kill fishers,

deer and rivers (“Blog Jammin’,” Aug. 8). Good farming of any kind gives good returns all around. Good reproductive (birthing or not) health care and education so innocent babies aren’t continually born to unhealthy situations over which they grow as mutations in life. Good health care/education for all. Good representation by elected public servants that project intent for community — an overall big picture good for everyone and everything! There are good people, but I am afraid not enough of them, because one severely miserable soul can devastate and destroy way beyond what several good souls can endeavor to mend and make whole. A very pessimistic view, I know and I am sorry and sad for it. I just don’t hold out much hope for humankind and am really distraught about the innocent bystanders we are taking/have taken down with us. How is that right? It’s not. Kathy Travers, Eureka

Where Credit’s Due Editor: I really appreciate Jennifer Savage’s coverage (“The Hum,” Aug. 1) of my Arts Alive! performance at The Works Records in Eureka, and that the story included a great photograph. I deeply and sincerely regret, however, that I neglected to credit the photo. Not only did Traci Bear Thiele take that great photograph, she invited me to her home, cooked me a scrumptious dinner at a party where I was invited to play through a very nice sound system for a splendid group of friends, and she provided me with a pillow to sit on while I played. She snapped the photo during my set, and a few days later emailed it to me gratis. How could I have forgotten to credit Traci Bear Thiele for such a generous gift? I am terribly embarrassed to admit that it simply did not occur to me until I saw it in print. I am very sorry to Traci Bear Thiele, the Journal, and its readers for the omission. John Hardin, Redway

Cheering the bat-thrower? Really, Arcata?


t was a chilly August evening in the Arcata ballpark, but things were about to warm up fast when Sergio Sanchez stepped to the plate for the Humboldt Crabs. This was the sixth inning of a win-or-go-home game in the Far West Baseball League championship tournament, and the crowd greeted Sanchez with “Ser-gi-o ... Ser-gi-o ... Ser-gi-o.” During the two-month summer collegiate season he had become the most popular player on the team and the darling of Arcata fans, who chanted whenever he came to bat. With the Crabs leading 6-4, the California Warriors of Mill Valley had just sent in a fresh pitcher. The first pitch sailed high over Sanchez’ head to the backstop. I thought maybe the pitcher was wild, since he’d just entered the game. The second pitch buzzed Sanchez, and he started toward the mound. The catcher and home plate umpire quickly stopped him. The third pitch came directly at Sanchez and he made no move to avoid it as the ball plunked him on the left shoulder and bounced away. Almost instantly Sanchez threw his bat at the mound. It sailed over the pitcher’s head and bounced almost to second base. Sanchez paused for a moment, then charged the mound. Players from both benches ran onto the field, and their brawl caused a 20-minute delay. As a former athlete, coach and sports reporter, I was appalled. But what happened in the stands was even more appalling. The crowd started chanting “Ser-gi-o... Ser-gi-o... Ser-gi-o,” as if he were a hero for throwing a bat. In baseball, every player has to throw the ball, but no player is ever supposed to throw a bat. Players can be ejected merely for throwing their helmets. But a bat? Go after someone with a bat on the street, and a prosecutor might call that assault with a deadly weapon. In one of the ugliest episodes in baseball, San Francisco Giants pitcher Juan Marichal beat Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Johnny Roseboro over the head with a bat in 1965. It ruined the season

6 North Coast Journal • Thursday, Aug. 15, 2013 •

for the Giants, paved the way for the Dodgers to win the World Series, and followed Marichal for life — even delaying his entry into the Hall of Fame. The attack had such an impact on the game that a complete review was broadcast as recently as October 2009, in “MLB Network Remembers: Incident at Candlestick, with Bob Costas” (see vimeo. com/6972310). The Arcata episode of Aug. 3 has been posted on YouTube, in a video that has received more than 750,000 hits in less than a week (See a Journal blog post and the video at bit.ly14IbqhG). The video only begins with the third pitch, but the crowd can clearly be heard chanting “Sergio,” while someone else can be heard booing and calling out the name “Marichal.” That was me. I was so upset at Sanchez’ behavior that I also booed him again on Sunday, which caused some unpleasantness because a few people nearby thought I was being racist. Can Sanchez escape punishment for this and remain a hero? Apparently, yes. And this is the wrong message to send to fans and to their children, the athletes of the future. Sanchez and the pitcher were both ejected and automatically suspended for the following game, in accord with Far West League policy. So Sanchez did not play the next game Sunday morning — but he was allowed to play in the following two championship games. League Commissioner Erik Wagle added an additional five-game suspension for both players — but only in 2014. But neither player is required to play in the league next year, so Sanchez received a very light punishment for throwing that bat. I wasn’t able to catch up with Sanchez for comment, but Crabs Coach Matt Nutter said, “Sergio had been hit the most on our team, and he was tired of being pitched at. He’s missed games because of being hit. So how dare the pitcher throw at his head three times in a row! “If I could turn back the clock a lot of things would be done differently,” Nutter added. “Everyone learned a lot of lessons

from it. Sergio regrets it, and it’s a tough position for all of us to be in. I’m just thankful there weren’t any serious injuries.” And what about the fans who cheered Sanchez while jeering his opponents? “He became a fan favorite early on. … The fans were just saying we’re behind you,” Nutter said. The head coach of Top Speed Baseball from Petaluma, the team that lost the last two championship games to the Crabs, had a different opinion. “That is an unsafe place to play. I was threatened by one of the fans that he was gonna jump me at the end of the game,” Stan Switala wrote in an email. “My parents and fans don’t even want to go back as the environment is beyond hostile,” he wrote. “We play in other venues in the West Coast League and California Collegiate League and they draw way more fans than Humboldt does — 1,000 to 3,000 a game — and there is never an issue as the fans are respectful and are there to watch baseball and not make fun of college players’ weight and the way they look.” The coaches of the other two teams in the tournament also told me that the Crabs fans were abusive and obnoxious. Vince Lombardi and Richard Nixon are both well-known for saying “winning isn’t everything — it’s the only thing.” This philosophy worked well for Lombardi in an era when players complied with a mandatory dress and behavior code. Nixon used it as a campaign strategy, and it landed more than 20 of his henchmen in prison and forced him to resign. When athletes retire from sports, they leave their personal statistics and wonloss records behind them. What they take with them are their lessons in life, social behavior and character development. With the right coaching and parenting, athletes learn that losing builds character, and character builds winners. So, winning isn’t everything. Character is! This is the greatest lesson we can learn from sports, and all of us, athletes and fans, should keep that in mind — instead of cheering mindlessly.

Five Things to Know Before Playing Cornhole

By Jennifer Savage Why cornhole? Because socializing mixed with friendly competition lets some sunshine into the otherwise dark recesses of your brain — it’s science! And because tossing a sack in a hole is harder than you think, you need a challenge, and this is way less scary than skydiving. Also because you muck about on Facebook too much and need some actual face-to-face interaction before your social skills completely atrophy. And because you need to do something silly with your partner to counterbalance all the bickering about the children/bills/ dishes/why he thinks draping his socks over the deck railing to “air out” is the same as washing them. Also, day drinking. You will need a team name. The perfect team name includes at least one of the following words: “hole,” “sack,” “bag,” “corn,” or some word related to one of them. It’s also a double entendre or pun: My husband and I played in the Humboldt County Cornhole Association’s annual Tournament as “The Hole Shebang.” Ahem. Other favorites include: “The Hole Enchilada,” “The Fun Bags,” “Maized and Confused” and “Amateur Corn Stars.” Hearing all the rules at once confuses the brain. Essentially, you’re trying to get the bag in the hole. The best way to acquire the necessary skills is to play with someone familiar with the ins-and-outs of the game, someone who will nurture you through the initial awkwardness and gently guide you into the best positions for success. With a little confidence instilled, you’ll be able to find your own groove and grow into a competent, perhaps even

amazing, player — but if your teammate is also a novice, don’t fret. You’ll just have to be patient with each other as you learn together. Then, years later, you’ll have wonderful memories to share. “Remember the first time we played cornhole?” “Yeah, that was really something.” Remember, bag in the hole is best, bag on the board is next best, knocking the other team’s bag off the board is excellent, but don’t let your bag bounce off the board into the dirt, because then it becomes a “dirty sack” and nobody likes that. According to the American Cornhole Association (yes, that exists!), cornhole rules because it’s safe (no metal or pointed objects), can be played almost anywhere and is extremely portable (take that, bocce ball!). All true. And even minimally crafty types can make their own boards and bags. Bonus: Join the cornhole world and expand your social options! Monday, Aug. 19, for example, Redwood Curtain Brewing Company in Arcata hosts a free cornhole tourney beginning at 6:30 p.m. Boards and bags provided. Call 826-7222 for more info. The Logger Bar also celebrates cornhole on a regular basis — check the legendary Blue Lake establishment’s Facebook page and the Journal’s calendar for dates and times or call 668-5000. Start now and be prepared to dominate the annual Humboldt County Cornhole Association tournament (yes, that’s a thing) next July. Forty-two teams competed this year.

y now you may have been to — or heard of — the Arcata Playhouse, the cozy theatre on the ground floor of the Ninth Street Creamery building, with its roller-rink floor and rustic charm. The pothole-spotted streets crisscrossing the neighborhood around the playhouse have long cloaked a concentration of creativity, from potters and stained glass-makers to painters, dancers and kinetic sculpture makers. While the Arcata Community Recycling Center was a regular draw, and Halloween brought costumed crowds to the Kinetic Lab’s haunted house, it wasn’t until the last six or so years, with the opening of the Arcata Playhouse, that the area began to have a more public face. The Playhouse reels in an eclectic potpourri of dance troupes, plays, bands and more and — next week — is expanding its scope outside the theater walls for an ambitious three-day festival stretched across several city blocks. “The festival explores the whole neighborhood and what’s possible here,” said Arcata Playhouse co-owner Jackie Dandeneau. She wants to “blow the doors off a little bit.” This re-envisioning is intended to put a public face on what’s becoming known as

Arcata’s Creamery District, an outwardly industrial gateway to the Bottoms nestled under the asymmetrical creamery. Local artists, property owners and the playhouse owners dreamed up the “Creamery District” name a couple of years ago, to give the neighborhood a stronger identity as they worked with the city to improve it. The facelift is moving quickly, and a year after receiving a $50,000 National Endowment for the Arts grant, Dandeneau and her husband David Ferney, who co-owns the playhouse, are putting together a summer spectacular. With a healthy turnout, they expect the broader community can see the first results of a year-and-a-half-long collaboration of business owners, artists, residents and the city. In the last several years, the district has seen new businesses, landscaping and public art. Small, affordable offices in the Greenway Partners building (formerly Yakima) now house the Northcoast Environmental Center, the Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission and graphic designers Sideshow Design. Most recently, the playhouse commissioned works ranging from an audio installation to urban-style art on nearby storage units. Aging industrial areas like the Creamery District can be havens for artists and startup businesses, said 3rd District Supervisor Mark

Lovelace. “You start with the areas where there’s a lot of vacant space,” he said. “It doesn’t need to be the most attractive of areas initially because its inward work, it’s not customer-driven work. After a while redevelopment is driven just by the amount of activity going on there.” Jewelry maker Holly Yashi moved into the Creamery building around 1985. “It was the right place at the right price,” co-owner Paul Lubitz said. When a building across the street went up for sale, Holly Yashi bought it and moved in, eventually adding 10,000 square feet to the facility. Later, in 2010, it opened a retail shop. That had been coowner Holly Hosterman’s idea, and Lubitz had reservations at first. “We’re hardly on the plaza,” he said. “Even the Arcata Plaza’s not Pier 39. It’s retail. It’s tough out there.” But Hosterman’s vision turned out to be a success. Tourists and locals alike shop and watch jewelry-making in action in Holly Yashi’s fuschia-hued building. Lubitz credits part of that success to the draw of the playhouse, and he says the neighborhood would be even more successful with more artists and more reasons to stay — like food, beer and wine. When the drop-off site of the nowdefunct recycling center came up for sale, Holly Yashi pounced on it. While the new owners’ plans are “very up in the air,” Lubitz loosely envisions the 12,000-square-foot property as a kind of artists’ courtyard, where visitors can watch crafts being made and get food or a drink after a Playhouse show. They’ll give it a trial run at next week’s festival, with food, art demonstrations and festivities occupying the open air space. “Everyone wants liveliness, they want art, they want life here,” Lubitz said. They also welcome other businesses. The Creamery building hosts a solar refrigerator company and a dance studio along with artists’ studios. What’s next? Ferney and Dandeneau plan to continue working with the city on ways to make the district more accessible from the plaza and beyond. That means better, contiguous lighting, safe crossings at K Street, and a look at traffic, parking, walking and bike paths. Public Works Director Doby Class said Arcata has applied for a Caltrans grant to fund that development. “It’s a great project,” Class said, adding that the City Council recently designated the playhouse a “Local Arts Agency” to help it to secure more grant funding. A proposed trail through the district, paralleling the unused rails on L Street, is in the environmental review stage, Class said, and expected to go before the California Transportation Commission in January. Meanwhile, the neighborhood spirit is blossoming in other ways.

“Renegade gardening” has replaced rocky, weedy roadside grass patches with sunflowers and other colorful flora. After a day of planting earlier this month, three tall paintings appeared overnight at the end of Ninth Street, an uncommissioned gift from a mystery benefactor. The revival has been driven by a good neighborhood communication, helped along by the liveliness of the playhouse, but its owners don’t want to claim too much credit. “We’re performers. We’re producers. We’re not civic organizers,” Dandeneau said. Ferney and Dandeneau met in Edmonton, Canada. After traveling internationally for years, they were both hired by Dell’Arte. They opened the Arcata Playhouse together in 2007. It was those years of travel and networking (“Once a street performer, always a street performer,” Dandeneau said) that gave them the contacts and know-how to attract talent for the playhouse — and for the upcoming festival. “Cross-pollinating” artists in and out of the area makes for a steady supply of talent, Dandeneau said. Their motto: “Pay artists first,” even if it’s not much. “You’re not going to be able to give them a huge fee — if you can give them a good experience they’ll come back,” Dandeneau said. They’ve paid out $250,000 to artists since the Playhouse opened in 2007, Ferney said, including $7,200 in commissioned street art this year. The pieces, imagined by five local artists, include sculpture, yarnwrapped trees and an audio installation that will play during the creamery festival. They’re all outdoors. Inspired by similar community-spurred neighborhood revitalizations in Portland and Detroit, Ferney and Dandeneau have long seen their neighborhood as ripe for revival. Their grant from the National Endowment of Arts’ helped bring their ideas to the attention of local businesses and governments, Dandeneau said. “It put a huge stamp of credibility on the organization and the project,” she said. And while the city’s gotten on board, Dandeneau said, she hopes over time the county will do more to fully embrace the idea of the arts as an economic driver, in Arcata and beyond. County supervisors approved a $25,000 Headwaters Fund grant for the playhouse last year, and Dandeneau would like to see arts and culture highlighted in the county’s economic planning. County Supervisor Lovelace said he’s a fan of the Creamery District revitalization, though its development is completely under the purview of the city. “I’m all ears if there’s role for the county to play in developing that,” Lovelace said. “I think it’s really prime for a renaissance down there.” l

Speaking in front of the American Bar Association’s House of Delegates in San Francisco, Holder was quoted as saying, “Too many Americans go to too many prisons for far too long, and for no truly good law enforcement reason.” Effective immediately, Holder’s plan will reduce sentences for drug offenses that aren’t tied to large-scale organizations, gangs or cartels.

Sara Bareilles to Internet: ‘All Love’


Lightning sparked fires east of Hoopa over the weekend, adding to the smokecongested air along the Trinity, Klamath and Salmon rivers. Joining fires in Orleans and along the Salmon River, the latest blaze (called the Corral Complex) started Saturday morning and grew to 375 acres by this afternoon. Lots of fuels and extreme terrain — not to mention thinly spread firefighting resources — are making this fire “problematic,” according to Six Rivers National Forest. Check the Forest Service’s Inciweb site for updated details on this and other Northern California fires.

No Sick Pelicans

Good News or Bad News? Remember last year how the Humboldt Wildlife Care Center, in Bayside, was inundated with sick pelicans? Most slick with oil from their ill-fated rummaging in fish-waste-Dumpsters, a few with fish skeletons lodged in their elegant throats? And the year before, same story, sick pelicans galore? Well this year, so far, the care center has had no pelican patients. None. And that’s actually a little creepy, says Monte Merrick, who works there and with Bird Ally X. “It’s very unusual,” he writes in an email to the Journal. “The absence of pelicans is kind of alarming ... still waiting to hear how the breeding year went down south, but my hunch is quite poorly, especially after the sea lion pup ‘unusual mortality event’ earlier this year. They eat the same fish, sardines and anchovies.” Bird Ally X has just released its final report on last year’s fish-waste contamination of pelicans. You can read it on the group’s blog. Even without pelicans, the care center still has been exhaustingly busy with other critters, says Merrick, including “TONS of baby mammals.” Here’s the rest of the tally, to date: 25 raccoons; 19 opossums (eight of them just released from care); two gray fox kits; one coyote; one squirrel; four skunks; six deer; and an assortment of birds, young and old. ● BUSINESS / ECONOMY / GOVERNMENT / BY RYAN BURNS / MONDAY, AUG. 12 AT 10:12 A.M.

Crabs Manager Arrested in Marijuana Raid

Humboldt Crabs Manager Matt Nutter was arrested this morning on suspicion of growing marijuana in his Blue Lake home. The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office found nearly 300 marijuana plants in a greenhouse and outdoors, as well as five guns. From the sheriff’s office: On 08-12-2013, at approximately 9:00 a.m., the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office served a Humboldt County Superior Court Search warrant at a residence located in the 300 block of Wiregrass Road, Blue Lake. When deputies arrived they met with the homeowner and suspect Matthew Frank Nutter, 50 years old. Deputies searched the property and residence and located three outdoor marijuana gardens and a greenhouse with marijuana plants. The plants ranged in size from 1 ½ feet tall to 6 feet tall. There were 39 marijuana plants growing in the greenhouse and 226 marijuana plants being grown outdoors. A search of the residence revealed five firearms, two shotguns, two rifles and a pistol. Nutter was arrested for cultivation of marijuana, maintaining a residence where marijuana is grown and possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony. He was transported and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where his bail was set at $75,000.00.

Harbor District Gets a Free Pulp Mill

It’s a done deal. The board voted unanimously Monday evening, with Commissioner Aaron Newman absent, to acquire the former pulp mill. Next comes lining up some tenants and figuring out what to do with all those nasty pulping liquors. Why would a 156-acre industrial site be free? Current owner Bob Simpson, president of Freshwater Tissue Co., couldn’t be reached immediately for comment. But the property does have some major documented liabilities. For example, the Harbor District has to figure out what to do with more than four million gallons of toxic “pulping liquors” stored onsite. It’s also in need of major rehabilitation and modification before it can be put to use. The facility would be transferred “as is,” and the Harbor District is not exactly flush with cash to make improvements. In fact, the agency has been losing more than $275,000 per year, on average, since fiscal year 2000-2001, and it’s projected to lose another $400,000 this year. Cash reserves have dwindled to about $1.5 million, down from more than $6 million in 2006.

Crabs Bat-Throwing Goes Viral

After getting beaned by a pitch at last Saturday’s game between the Humboldt Crabs and the California Warriors, Crabs catcher Sergio Sanchez wound up, took a step toward the mound and hurled his bat at the pitcher. Players and coaches from both teams stormed the field while an umpire guided the pitcher, Michael Peterson, away from the fracas. Witnesses of the event, including the Journal’s own Jonathan Webster, say that Peterson had thrown three straight pitches directly at Sanchez. A video of the incident (below) has gotten more than 170,000 views so far on YouTube, and a story was posted last night on Yahoo! Sports. [UPDATE: 323,615 views and counting, 4:30 p.m.] According to the person who posted the video, both Sanchez and Peterson were ejected, and Peterson Sanchez was suspended for two games. The Crabs went on to win the Far West League Tournament Championship the following day. Humboldt Crabs President Matthew Filar sent us an email earlier defending his player. “Certainly throwing the bat was wrong,” Filar wrote, “but when a pitcher throws a ball at a batter at 92 mph, and the authority figure (the umpire) does nothing, when does the batter have to defend himself. Four pitches? Five?” He added that since the video doesn’t show the entire event — including the first two pitches directed at Sanchez — it implies that the Crabs batter was mostly to blame. This “could very well damage the future of a very talented and very good young man,” Filar said. ●




Poem Store Goes Hollywood

Frequenters of the Arcata Farmers’ Market may have noticed something missing this year: No, the strawberries, quail eggs and mushrooms are still in abundance — but versification while you wait has gone onto that ethereal plain. Well, not quite. Jacqueline Suskin, the oft-bespectacled proprietor of the Poem Store, took her lap-sized typewriter and lyrical mind to the sunnier climes of Hollywood, California. And lo! There she is, below the fold on the cover of today’s Los Angeles Times, bestowing paeans on the masses from her poem emporium at the Hollywood Farmers’ Market. According to the article, Suskin moved to Silver Lake several months ago and signed with an artist agency, which gets her gigs at weddings, festivals, galleries and bookstores. No word yet on whether any of her poems have been optioned. ● ENVIRONMENT / NATURAL RESOURCES / BY GRANT SCOTT-GOFORTH / FRIDAY, AUG. 9 AT 2:39 P.M.

Farmers Sue Over Trinity Flows

Irrigators in the San Joaquin Valley filed suit this week to block a recent decision to increase water flows down the Trinity River. The San Luis & Delta-Mendota Water Authority — a collection of water agencies the operates in from as far north as Stockton down to Fresno — said in its filing that valley farmers are being neglected this year, according to the Associated Press. The authority also argues that the Bureau of Reclamation, which approved the extra release from Trinity Reservoir to reduce the likelihood of a fish kill, doesn’t have the legal authority to deliver water downstream. “It is unthinkable that the Defendants

would unlawfully, release water … to the ocean instead of delivering that supply to water users who desperately need it,” the lawsuit reads. The suit calls for a permanent injunction that would prevent the Bureau from releasing extra water downstream. California Water Impact Network spokesman Tom Stokely said federal judge Anthony Ishii will hear the case — though it’s unclear if that will happen by the time increased flows begin on Aug. 13. The Hoopa Valley Tribe joined the fight as well, filing an intervention to be named as a co-defendant of the Bureau. Stokely said the tribe was “instrumental” in defending the government’s 2000 record of decision to increase flows. ● BUSINESS / ECONOMY / BY GRANT SCOTT-GOFORTH / THURSDAY, AUG. 8 AT 5:48 P.M.

Big Layoff at Tomas

Arcata jewelry company Tomas laid off 19 people from its Arcata offices today — part of a 25 percent reduction of the company’s U.S. workforce. Reached this afternoon, CEO Chris Albright said it was a difficult choice regarding a “simple” problem. “It’s about a decline in sales,” he said. “Some way we had to reduce our expenses to continue to be a healthy, sustainable business.” The permanent employees were fired immediately and paid through Friday, Albright said. Tomas, founded in Arcata by Tom Perrett 29 years ago, doesn’t make jewelry in the U.S., Albright said. Until today, it employed 89 workers at its campuses in Chicago, Arcata and Arkansas. The Arcata campus housed business offices, shipping and some “carding” — attaching jewelry to cardboard backings for sale. Albright didn’t go into specifics, but said employees were laid off from a variety of positions. Albright said Tomas owner Perrett hadn’t been involved in the day-to-day operations of the business for several years, and while Albright had been in touch with Perrett, the decision was his completely his own. “We’re extremely thankful for the hard work and dedication of the people that we have and that’s what’s made this so difficult,” Albright said. Albright said he’s reaching out to the community, asking local businesses to consider hiring former Tomas employees. Tomas made the Times-Standard when it laid off 87 employees in 2005. ●

Watershed Worries

Fears of another massive fish kill are growing as tribal officials and biologists size up the combined effects of a low water year and high demand from upstream farmers and local pot growers, the Two Rivers Tribune is reporting. “Dangerous conditions on the Klamath and Trinity become the new normal,” warns the headline in this week’s edition. About 100 juvenile fish have already died in Blue Creek, where an estimated 20,000 have crowded together to escape warmer water elsewhere, a Yurok fisheries biologist told Two Rivers staff writer Kristan Korns. Korns’ piece offers a snapshot of local conditions, from trucks trundling into the back country carrying loads of irrigation piping to creeks plagued by algae to the “sickly sweet” chemical spray used on legal crops: “It smelled like syrup mixed with bathroom cleaner, and could be felt in the eyes and on the skin from 100 yards away.” ● CRIME / BY RYAN BURNS / THURSDAY, AUG. 8 AT 7:25 A.M.

River Rising

The Trinity and Klamath rivers are going to get colder, higher and faster next week when the Bureau of Reclamation increases water

flows from the Trinity Reservoir. The release is expected to help another strong run of returning chinook salmon in the Klamath, hopefully preventing the spread of disease that contributed to a fish kill in 2002. Following the model of a similar release last year, the bureau will open the spouts incrementally starting Aug. 13 so that the Lower Klamath — at Requa — will see the bureau’s goal of 2800 cubic feet of water per second by Aug.. 15. The increased flows are planned to continue through at least Sept. 21. The bureau’s plan has taken some heat from both Central Valley irrigators — who filed a 60-day notice of intent to sue on July 11 — and the Hoopa Valley Tribe, who issued a press release today saying the release was “too little, too late.” Pete Lucero, public affairs officer for the Bureau of Reclamation, said so far no lawsuit has been filed by the irrigators. As for the Hoopa Tribe’s concerns: “The only thing I can say is we took a similar action last year that did what it had to do relative to the species of concern,” Lucero said. “It remains to be seen whether this year’s action will protect the species. Our information indicates that it will.” The bureau recommends that anyone recreating on the rivers use caution and wear a life vest.

Drink your milk — decades of dairy princesses can’t be wrong By Heidi Walters


here once was a little girl who dreamed of being a princess. A dairy princess. One day this little girl was in her work clothes, cooking giant meals with her mother for the dairymen, throwing feed to the chickens, grooming her 4-H beast, or bucking hay, feeding calves and laying down clean straw in the milk barn. And the next day — shazam! — she was wearing a dress, sash and twinkling tiara and entrancing small children and big grown-ups alike with glasses of milk, scoops of ice cream and dollops of wisdom about why milk’s good for you. Where we live — in California’s Dairy District 1, encompassing Humboldt and Del Norte counties — 56 dairy princesses have reigned since the American Dairy Association started the princess program in 1958. Hundreds of alternates have served right alongside them. Princess schmincess, you say — we’ve got real, nonfanciful lives to lead here. Oh, but don’t be too smug. Chances are, if you live in Humboldt, you know a dairy princess. And not just because you saw her serving ice cream at the county fair. You might have a princess for a boss. Or a teacher. A real estate agent. A nurse. An accountant. Maybe right at this moment you’re tearing into a piece of grassfed beef jerky that a princess wrangled into existence. A dairy princess is not, that is to say, a mincing, weak little frilly waiting in a constant faint for some big feller to come along and do the hard work. She’ll do it, and do it well — that’s how she became princess, after all. How do we know this? Because we’ve talked with a lot of dairy princesses, including at least one from each decade of the contest, and we’ve learned a fair bit about the rest of them. The dairy industry may have changed through the years, but the princesses at their core remain the same: They’re leaders. Teachers. Nurturers. Managers. And (mostly) they really, really love milk cows, or at least the people who

$10,000 among them. Better get yourself a cow, girl.

Humboldt County has had a

thriving dairy industry since immigrant farmers began settling with their cows in the Eel River Valley in the mid-1800s. In the 1950s, at the dawn of the princess era, there were hundreds of small dairy ranches here, most with a few dozen cows. Joan Boynton Frakes, who was District 1’s very first dairy princess, grew up on one of those dairies — about 150 acres of flat land settled by the





tend them. Also, in case you still want to sneer at the words “dairy princess,” consider this: Up to 400 people have been known to pack the Fortuna River Lodge these days to watch young women compete for that sash and tiara. And for scholarships — this year’s princess and three alternates split


Boynton family 100 years earlier along the banks of the Salt River, near Port Kenyon. The ranch is close to the ocean and often fog-enshrouded. Frakes (who now lives in Pullman, Wash.) remembers how, when the fog rolled back in the afternoons, she could see the ocean waves out the kitchen window. In those sunny hours the

family would hurry to get the haying done so it could dry out. Frakes’ three big brothers — much older than she — helped their father with the haying, milking the Jerseys and other heavier duties. “I could do whatever I wanted to do,” says Frakes. “I got to feed the calves. I’d go down with my dad in the afternoons and bring up the cows. I could feed the dry cows — the ones not milking. Anything: Just to be outside on the ranch, that’s what I loved to do. Mom, she was very busy always cooking; we had three huge meals, breakfast, dinner and supper.” When she turned 10 and was eligible to join 4-H, Frakes’ dad let her go into the calf pen and choose one. She picked the one with a heart-shaped spot on her beige forehead, and named her “Hearty.” “I picked a winner, an absolutely beautiful animal,” she says. By her late teens, she had 15 dairy cows, including her “fancy cow,” Hearty. They ran with the family herd, and Frakes showed them at fairs. Her dad showed some cows, too, and Frakes had to prepare all the show animals: trim their hooves, clip their hair and lay blankets on them to make them look smooth. It was her mom’s idea that she run in the new contest for a dairy princess. She was 19. “It sounded interesting,” Frakes says. “You had to have a dairy background. … And it wasn’t a beauty contest. That appealed to me. I thought that was really nice, something that wasn’t based on beauty.” The contest and banquet were held in a conference room at the agricultural center on Humboldt Hill, and about 40 people watched Frakes and a few other girls vie for princess. “I wore a silly brown wool dress that I made, just a very plain, figure-friendly dress,” Frakes recalls. After she won, she went to the state contest in Los Banos, and there the contestants had to wear formals — layers of stiff, crinoline petticoats that made them look like sugary cakes. Hers was pink.

Jan Carlton, a Fresno State College student from a dairy in Winton, won state that year, and went on to compete nationally — where, apparently, beauty played at least a small factor. The 1958 American Dairy Association’s contest program noted Carlton “is five feet six inches tall, weighs 120 pounds, and measures 36-24-36.” Neither the national nor state contests exist anymore; the state contest ended in 1984 — the only year it was won by a Humboldt dairy princess, Bridget Enos Conner. During Frakes’ year-long reign as District 1 dairy princess, in which she also began her studies at Humboldt State, she spoke at service clubs, attended fairs, gave newspaper interviews and even had to handwrite milk-based recipes for local newspapers to publish. And she had to wear a sash, tiara and dress (nothing fancy) through it all. Frakes left dairying after that. She taught at McKinleyville High School for a year, and summer school at Arcata High. Then she and her husband, Albert — a football player she’d met at HSU midway through her reign — began a family. He eventually got a job as an accounting professor at Washington State University in Pullman; Frakes stayed home to raise their three kids. Her nephew Matthew Boynton runs the family dairy ranch at Port Kenyon these days.

Smith and her three brothers and two sisters all had chores growing up, taking care of 80 Guernsey milk cows and their calves, and a carrot crop on about 160 acres. “We cleaned corrals, milked cows, hauled hay and weeded carrots,” she says. They went to the Catholic Assumption School in Ferndale, where Smith played basketball, badminton and crab soccer. She was an outdoors girl. “I did that princess thing for my parents,” says Smith, who with her husband, Jack, owned Valley Grocery in Ferndale for 35 years until selling it in 2011. “They really wanted somebody to do that, to represent, so I said, ‘Oh, OK, I’ll do it, because

I’m not going to win, so I’ll just go do this one-day thing.” It was at the Eureka Inn. She wore bell-bottoms during the day for the interviews, and in the evening she put on a short, solid yellow dress her mom made for her. “Not a cocktail dress,” she says. “It was very sweet.” They didn’t announce the winner until 8:30 that night. She was shocked to hear her name. “I think it was because I was very genuine, very down to earth and practical,” she says, self-consciously. “My parents were so proud, and that was the biggest thing. My dad had been through a lot. He lost all of his cows in the 1964 flood — 80 milk cows plus calves, so probably 100 animals. And in the 1955 flood, the water was up to the windows in our house. My dad worked and worked and worked and lost; worked and worked and worked and lost.” But the whole publicity thing, the traveling around to present ribbons and talk milk, wasn’t for her. “It was too much attention and time away from home, and I’m a home person,” she says. Before they bought the grocery, in 1980, she and her husband worked for Herb Russ’ beef ranch on Bunker Hill. They raised two kids, who in turn raised 4-H animals on the couple of acres the Smiths owned. And for the past 10 years, Smith has been helping her friend, Mariof princesses ett Dwight, run her grass-fed beef (and followed.

continued from previous page princess for a very precise reason — to learn how to be a public relations whiz. “Being a dairy princess really is a public relations position,” she says. “And I was really focused on looking towards some type of public relations/agricultural career.” Maybe the three judges looked into their milky ball and saw she wasn’t kidding — that she would spend 10 years doing publicity and superintending the livestock for the Humboldt County Fair before settling in for 24 years (and counting) at the helm of the Humboldt County Farm Bureau. She’s the executive director. Ziemer keeps her tiara in her china cabinet. And she and her husband, retired Humboldt Fire Protection District Chief Glenn Ziemer, have good-natured battles over who gets to drink straight from the milk jug. “We buy three gallons a week and Glenn drinks most of it,” she says, and adds, laughing, “I try to get him to pour it into a glass — and then he sees my lipstick on the jug, and he gets a glass.”

As the dairy princesses exchanged their bell-bottoms for bootcuts, the dairy country they once knew was being transformed. In 1981 there were still 161 dairies in Humboldt, according to Mary Ann Renner, who is dairy through and through: She grew up on her dad’s dairy in Ferndale, vied for dairy princess when she was in high school, and married a dairyman, Dave Renner. Their daughter, Alayna, was dairy princess in 2008. Mary Ann Renner has coordinated the local dairy princess program since 1993, and in that time she has seen the number of dairies just keep dropping. By 2007, Humboldt had 90 dairies, according to a report by the Prosperity! group. By 2012, there were just 64, according to the state Department of Food and Agriculture. Dave Renner says it’s happening everywhere, not just in Humboldt County. Dairies are consolidating, their larger herds upping per-farm production; machinery’s getting more efficient, upping per-cow milk production.



“Efficiencies of size and scale — you have to get larger in order to become more efficient and more competitive,” he says. Gone, mostly, is the 40- to 80-cow herd. The Renners have 350 milk cows, plus calves. The state reports that the county’s 64 dairies average 217 cows each. A few are much larger, with 800 or more. (Even so, Humboldt’s dairies remain comparatively small, averaging one-fifth the size of dairies statewide.) Small or large, though, dairying takes work. Linda Fraga Sturges — 1982 dairy princess — saw enough of that firsthand. She grew up on her family’s dairy farm, the Masada Dairy, on 80 acres they rented in the Arcata Bottom. She had nothing to do with the cows. Or 4-H or Future Farmers of America. In fact, as a young girl, she vowed to herself she would get as much schooling as she could to get off the dairy. “I saw how hard my parents worked,” says Sturges. “My mother worked full time outside the home, as head of housekeeping at the Ramada Inn in Valley West, and then full time at the dairy cooking a big breakfast and the other

meals.” Her father worked tirelessly outside. Sturges and her mother did the “inside work.” Her parents had emigrated from the Azores in 1959, and kept a traditional household. Sturges had to feed the chickens and collect eggs, make blood sausage, and help her mother cook meals, wash dishes, do laundry and clean the house. In her senior year of high school, she also started working at the Ramada Inn. One day, she says, another dairy rancher knocked on the family’s front door and asked her father if he would buy some tickets to the dairy princess banquet. Her father asked what that was. And then he demanded to know the requirements — could his daughter compete? “Nobody even knew the Fragas had a daughter,” says Sturges. Two days later her mom said to her, “’You’re going to put on a dress and go to this thing at the Eureka Inn.’” It was less than two weeks away. Her parents didn’t let her date, so a coworker at the Ramada agreed to escort her. She wore a mid-length, cream-col-

ored, demure dress with long sleeves and lace up to her neck. Silvia Leonardo, who was the dairy princess coordinator at the time, remembers how Sturges’ speech, delivered rapidfire in precise, accented English (Portuguese was her first language), “blew everyone out of the water.” Neither she nor Sturges recall the content, but Sturges says she probably talked about her parents being immigrants

and scraping up a living as dairy people in their adopted country. As dairy princess, Sturges discovered she had a knack for public speaking. “That experience alone prepares you for any interview you’re going to have,” she says. “You learn to shake someone’s hand, look them in the eye.” She graduated in 1988 from HSU with a degree in business administration and a minor in computers, spent 13 years traveling the country helping companies automate their cable systems, then traveled throughout Asia for Intel several years doing the same work. She got a master’s degree in education. She wound up in banking, then was caught up in massive recession-triggered layoffs in 2008. She is divorced now, living back in Humboldt County, raising her daughter (who is 16) and working as an invoice associate at Walmart — on DEBRA NICKOLS CRUISES THE PASTURE WITH HARVEY HARPER.

track, said a recent shareholders’ letter, to be an assistant manager. Sturges’ brother, Mike Fraga, stayed with the milk industry — but switched to goats, she says, “because cows are so expensive.”

Sometimes, dairy

princesses grow up to be dairywomen. In 1991, the tiara went to Debra Holgersen (married name Nickols), whose great grandparents emigrated from Denmark in 1908 and established a dairy at Beatrice, where Tompkins Hill Road and Hookton Road intersect. A dozen little dairies had sprung up around Beatrice, and they all sold their milk to Eclipse Creamery. Her family’s dairy — Holgieville Jerseys — is all that’s left there now. At 19, Nickols was a jeans-andcowboy boots girl, an “aggie girl.” But she dreamed of being a dairy princess — not just because of the scholarships, which District 1 had begun offering in 1985, but because she really wanted continued on page 19 • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, AUG. 15, 2013

continued from page 17 to meet the other dairy people and to takes calves into elementary schools to teach kids about the dairying life. And serve ice cream. “My favorite thing to do was scooping ice cream at events,” she says. She even did a TV commercial once with Harvey Harper, the late patriarch of Harper Motors — she and he sat in an old-fashioned, yellow Ford in a field, surrounded by her milk cows. Nickols married, started a family, worked for a vet and then was lured back into dairying. She’s worked for her dad since 1999 at Holgieville Jerseys and today is the herd manager. Other princesses have gone on to become insurance agents, nurses, loan officers and a plethora of teachers — of art, music, home economics, accounting, business and, especially in the past couple of decades, agriculture science, business and economics. Farm-bred or not, they share one defining characteristic: They’re dedicated, hard-driving achievers, as princess coordinator Renner puts it. In 2003, the 17-year-old daughter of a park ranger mom and fire captain dad became dairy princess. Jalisca Fry (married name Thomason) was in FFA, and her parents let her raise dairy heifers and goats and sheep on their five acres in Bayside. (Her mom grew up on a goat dairy, in another part of the state — but the California Milk Advisory Board doesn’t represent goat dairies.) Thomason says she was eager to interact with dairy producers and consumers, and to advocate for them — something she does to this day as a high school agricultural teacher and head of the ag department at Woodlake Union High School near Visalia in the Central Valley. “I feel that there’s a big disconnect between what the producers know and what the consumers assume,” she says. “For example, producers know that everything they do is for the benefit and health of the animal. And consumers feel that dairy animals aren’t always treated appropriately and that antibiotics are used indiscriminately — and that’s not true.” Thomason, who studied at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo (a favorite college choice for local dairy princesses, along with U.C. Davis), says today’s dairy princess need to be armed with a lot more than ice cream scoops, chocolate milk cartons, basic dairy facts, ribbons and smiles. Even the cute calf that a princess trots into classrooms for kids to meet isn’t enough. (Thomason recalls that her calf pooped all over Mrs. Branca’s

floor.) “Dairy princesses today should be a lot more informed about animal health and antibiotics,” she says. “They should be up on legislative matters, and know how milk quotas are established.” Today’s princess might want to be up on changes in local dairying, too, including the biggie: District 1’s major shift to organic milk production, which Thomason approves of. The feed costs more, but the product sells for more. And Humboldt still



has the land — and an ingrained family dairy tradition — to do it. Most of the dairies have made the switch, and now 70 percent of milk production from Humboldt and Del Norte counties is organic, says Blake Alexandre, who runs organic dairies in both counties. It’s a tall order — the milk quota thing alone is headache-inducing. But the 2013 dairy princess, 17-yearold Andrea Guggenbickler, seems plenty smart for the task. The Ferndale High School junior had a 4.4 grade point average last semester. She’s got the new-rules dairying cred in spades: She grew up in town in Loleta, but worked for her grandpa, Larry Nicholson, on his dairy on Grizzly Bluff — tending calves and dry cows, driving the six-wheeled Gator and the tractor, slinging 70-pound bales of hay, moving fence, and rounding up cows at milking time. She’s also been raising heifers for 4-H since she was 9, and she raised chickens with FFA. She’s done a lot of public speaking, too, and this summer she went to Girl’s State in Claremont. Guggenbickler is pumped about being dairy princess, and about the “extremely wonderful” week of princess training she attended in Modesto. “It was so nice to meet all the other girls from the other districts, and to see they’re the same as you, that they’re of the same mindset. Everyone is focused on the goal of advocating for the dairy industry, because they love the dairy industry. Everyone is in love with the dairy industry, just like you.” She and her alternates have quite a few plans for the rest of their yearlong reign, which began after they were selected in May. Besides speaking engagements, school visits and serving ice cream, they’re talking about having a dairy day at the park in Ferndale and bringing calves and milking cows. And when it’s over? Guggenbickler hopes she’s headed for U.C. Davis — to study forensic chemistry so she can eventually become a medical examiner. Yep, as in CSI, although she realizes it’s not as exciting as on TV. “I’ve already been to the cadaver room at College of the Redwoods, to see if I could handle it,” she says. “It wasn’t a big deal.” In the meantime, going around in that tiara and sash, talking about living healthfully and including milk products in your diet, she might give some other little girl (or her parents) an idea about becoming a princess. A dairy princess.

Gen X and Y Gardeners

Can we quit worrying about this, please? By Genevieve Schmidt


very year or two, some horticultural marketing team gets a buzzing insect in its collective shorts about Gen X and Y and how we aren’t gardening enough. The subtext is that gardening is a boomer activity and that at some scary date in the future, we will be left with no gardeners at all because all my generation likes to do is play video games and text with people who are sitting in the same room. While the world has certainly changed, it hasn’t changed so much that gardening isn’t any fun. In fact, my generation’s reliance on technology has given us the easy availability of information and inspiring ideas (Pinterest, anyone?) that makes us more likely to get outside and plunge our hands into the soil, rather than less. But I’ll admit it: On the whole, people in their 20s and 30s don’t garden as much as people 45-and-up. And, repeat after me, this is not a cause for concern. Why? Gardening is most fun when you own your home. While I admit to gussying up my landlords’ gardens more than I should have, the fact remains that I wasn’t willing to buy that $300 Japanese maple until I had a place to stick it. A place that I owned. And most people don’t own their own home until they’re a little more settled in life. Then, usually, that starter home needs a bit of work before we feel we can change focus and start gardening. Gardening costs money. We can make

self-righteous claims about how black nursery pots are free and seeds cost a dollar, but let’s be honest here: that’s not going to look like what’s in the gardening magazines, and a black pot of dollar nasturtiums is not what most people want. Even the most rudimentary of cute container combos will cost $30 for the pot, $10 in soil, and $35 in plants. When you’re making $10 an hour slinging mochas, that’s a lot of work for one little container. Plus, that second job we work to pay the bills doesn’t leave us a whole lot of time for fluffing our pansies. Gardening is something we like to do with our kids. Kids have a way of making our old Gen X and Y hobbies untenable. I mean, kids really aren’t any good at World of Warcraft when they’re little; all they want to do is drool on the controller and bang it on the table. When this realization sinks in, Gen X and Y do what other generations before us have done: We’ve looked around for new hobbies that might possibly keep the sproglets quiet or at least busy for a few moments while we engage in them. And what better than gardening, which offers the dual benefits of bugsquashing opportunities and the chance to get completely, unfathomably covered in muck? We love it, kids love it, and if we do a good job, there might even be tomatoes at the end of summer to celebrate with. So, home ownership, money and kids: When did you have all three? For most

of us, that trifecta of gardening readiness happens a little later in life. Plus, it’s always cool to take up hobbies our friends understand, and that doesn’t happen with gardening till later either. I can’t tell you how many college friends dumped Coors into my perfectly planned flowerpots at the end of a party. Uncool, man, uncool. Nowadays, my friends wouldn’t dream of drinking Coors, and they finish their cocktails like the civilized grownups we’ve become. Problem solved. Besides all of that, I think the hand-wringing about us not gardening may be incorrect. Maybe it’s the crew I hang with, but I’d guess my generation is gardening more than previous generations did at our age (I’m not counting all the “indoor gardening” you boomers did in the 1960s!), due to the edible gardening trend and the cool patio gardening ideas like gardening with succulents or vertical gardening — both things apartment gardeners can get behind. So, if we are indeed gardening, what’s skewing those surveys that keep coming out? Well, the people who have their pants in a bunch about this are people trying to sell us things. And those people should be worried, because most horticultural companies just don’t “get” us. They want us to spray their products

on our plants, buy flowered bifocals and aprons, strive for a ChemLawn and plant endless acres of petunias in our front yards. I’m sorry, but that’s not for us. We’re more Flora Grubb than Home Depot, and we’re questioning the lies Big Hort’s been trying to sell us all these years. If you want to sell to Gen X and Y, I’ll tell you how: Don’t dumb it down, keep it modern and minimalist, and quit trying to sell us chemicals, even organic ones. We’ll pop $200 worth of succulents on our credit cards to make that vertical garden, but we wouldn’t take your Miracle-ick and flowered trowels home if they were free. The appeal of gardening is that it’s real and dirty and interesting, so anyone trying to sell us someone else’s dream about how it’s pristine, bug-free and takes no investment of energy beyond “Dig, Drop and Done” is completely missing the point. l

By Barry Evans


he trick of combining the tensile strength (resistance to pulling) of iron and steel with the compressive strength (resistance to pushing) of concrete is just 160 years old. In 1853, French industrialist François Coignet built an iron-reinforced concrete four-story house in Paris. Then 50 years later, another Frenchman, Eugène Freyssinet (1879-1962), took the technique to the next level with his prestressed concrete arch bridge designs. The first use of Freyssinet’s technique in the United States is a seven-arch reinforced concrete bridge on Highway 101 just a few hours north of here: the Isaac Lee Patterson Memorial bridge crossing the Rogue River between Gold Beach and Wedderburn, Ore. While engineers can design concrete to resist huge compressive forces — up to 5 tons per square inch — they also go to great lengths to avoid putting concrete in tension, since it cracks very easily. However, French engineers (must be the wine over there) realized in the 1880s that a concrete beam, for instance, can be kept in a permanent state of compression by “prestressing” it: clamping the concrete tightly by stretching steel rods or cables between the ends of the beam. Freyssinet’s lasting contribution was to apply the prestressing technique to concrete arch bridges, which were known to deform after construction due to the twin effects of concrete “creep” and steel “relaxation.” Freyssinet perfected his arch precompression technique during construction of a series of bridges in France, starting in 1911 with the Pont du Veurdre, in the Auvergne. At the time, the three 238-foot spans were the longest in the world. Conde McCullough, Oregon state bridge engineer from 1919 to 1936, knew of Freyssinet’s pioneering designs when he was directed to design a bridge

4485 BROADWAY, EUREKA (just South of K-Mart) across the Rogue in 1929. He not only used Freyssinet’s techniques, but he arranged for the state of Oregon to buy 16 250-metric-ton hydraulic screw jacks from Freyssinet’s firm in Paris to be used in the construction. Once the concrete abutments and piers had been installed, the contractor — Eureka’s own Mercer-Fraser — built timber falsework (temporary scaffolding) to support the seven arches. Instead of joining the reinforced concrete arches at their crowns (the usual method up until then), the tops of the arches were kept slightly separate. The jacks were then installed between the ends to pry them apart, raising them slightly in the process. Workers poured high-strength concrete between the two half-spans to act as a keystone. Once the concrete had set and steel rebar was welded into place to create a solid connection, they removed the falsework. Eventually the bridge settled under its own weight to its design profile (see diagram). The bridge was built (under budget!) in just two years, from 1930 to 1932. This is an astonishingly short period, considering that new techniques were being used for the first time in the United States, and that the nearest railway line was 80 miles away. Next time you’re in Gold Beach, do walk the short trail upstream from the jet boat docks to a viewpoint just past the bridge. From there, you can admire the Art Deco lines and slender arches of Oregon’s most elegant bridge, made possible by the pioneering techniques of Eugène Freyssinet. • Barry Evans ( is happy to report that all his bridges from his civil engineering days are still standing — to the best of his knowledge.

Long goodbyes and honky-tonk heartbreaks By Jennifer Savage

in Arcata & Eureka.

udging from the escalated aggravation level that driving through Arcata elicits, we’ve hit that point in the year when Humboldt State University is about to swing back into session. Some of these students will fall in love with the area, and some will fall in love with people who live here. Those students in love will remain after

graduation, scrambling to find work and pay rent. Some of them will land jobs that will enable bills to be paid and vacations to warmer climates to be had, but many others will sling coffee or cocktails instead, perhaps trimming on the side and otherwise patching income sources together until they’ve finally had enough and are faced with what has become

Soul Night’s Matt Jackson (above) and Brian “Mantease” Woida Photos by Bob Doran

known as The Humboldt Choice: Should I stay or should I go? Is the natural beauty and great community fair compensation for the lack of career options, or should I move to a place that is less amazing but more lucrative? Some people just keep making it work. Some leave. Very soon, the list of Those Who Left will include the beloved artist/DJ/barista/person Brian “Mantease” Woida, who is off to the Bay Area to pursue a career in barbering. You may know him as the guitarist from local rockers The Ravens. You may know him as the guy who does that cool art inspired by his massive vinyl collection (brianwoida. You may know him as DJ

Mantease, responsible for laying down grooves that make you shake and shimmy like you’ve found religion in them. You may have found religion in them. You may know him as the sweet, artsy barista who makes your Brio cappuccinos beautiful. In any case, if you’ve left your house in the past 10 years, you probably know Woida. And if you do, then you will undoubtedly miss him.

Soul Night Goodbye

What better send-off than a Soul Night dedicated to the magic that is Mantease? Tickets for the monthly dance bash are on sale at Humboldt Brews and remain a mere $5. The action starts at 10 p.m. on Saturday. Dress to impress — and to sweat. This is not a stand-around-andlisten party.

continued from previous page bye twice — a second chance to twerk, bounce and bang happens Thursday, Aug. 22, also at Hum Brews. “Brian’s Gotta Bounce” launches at 9:30 p.m. The man himself launches shortly thereafter.

People Who Love Words Will Like This

Hey, I love shouting “Oy! Oy! Oy!” while rocking out to AC/DC’s “TNT” as much as anyone — probably more than most — but the art of stringing words together to evoke certain emotions is a beautiful thing when done well. On Friday, poet-singer-songwriter Brian Laidlaw will demonstrate excellence at just that when he performs at Siren’s Song. Currently touring in support of his latest solo project, Wolf Wolf Wolf, Laidlaw combines a poet’s sensibility with a songwriter’s storytelling skills layered over music that tantalizes listeners into wanting more. Show starts at 9 p.m. and is free.

Honky Tonkin’

Friday also provides a chance to pretend you’re in the roadhouse of your dreams when Humboldt’s sexy Side Iron joins Santa Cruz’s Miss Lonely Hearts at the Alibi. The five-piece Miss Lonely Hearts get massive legit points with praise from Devil Makes Three’s Cooper McBean and a history of opening for such Humboldt faves/excellent acts as The Devil Makes Three, Eileen Jewel, Deke Dickerson, Jolie Holland, Sally Ford and The Pine Box Boys. The band credits upright bassist Mischa Gasch with the ability to have “every man in the crowd dancing and every girl in the crowd swooning.” If

you’re drawn to whiskey, heartache and/or catharsis, this is a don’t-miss show.

Fish, Flying Saucers, Frolicking

Saturday brings three festivals representing extraordinarily diverse musical, food and entertainment options. Welcome to Humboldt, kids! Look for more on the Yurok Tribe’s Klamath Salmon Festival, the Bridgefest UFO Festival and Frolic in the Glen elsewhere in the Journal’s calendar.

Nashville Legends

Country music fans can delight in Deborah Allen and Mike Loudermilk’s “Intimate Evening” at the Eureka Theater on Saturday. These two are the real deal – the list of accomplishments, honors and awards they’ve garnered would fill a book. If this is your kind of show, you probably already know you want to go. Tickets are $27.50 in advance or $35 at the door, available online and at The Works and the Eureka Theater.


While we here at the Journal strive to provide the most accurate information, every so often unforeseen circumstances mean a show will be canceled or changed. It’s never a bad idea to double-check on websites, Facebook or with a phone call. Full show listings in the Journal’s Music and More grid, the Eight Days a Week calendar and online.

UFOs! Bridge! Bridgeville is one of Humboldt’s little gems, a friendly and quaint village nestled among the redwoods in the rural reaches of the county. Don’t let Bridgeville’s bucolic smallness fool you, though; that town knows how to have a good time. Saturday, Aug. 17, is the 17th annual Bridgefest and Flying Saucer Contest, and it is a sight to behold. Held on the old, stone Bridgeville Bridge, the festival-based contest is both an exercise in physics and a costume extravaganza. Costumed contestants compete, following the detailed rules found on the event’s website, to design, build and flawlessly launch and land handpropelled flying saucers (think Frisbees, but more sciency). In teams of two, the contestants participate in front of a panel of three local judges and are awarded points for multiple criteria: design, overall performance and presentation, accuracy (there’s actually a bulls-eye), distance and so much more! Anyone can enter with a $5 fee, and you can register from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the day of the event. If the spectacle of silly people doing strange things isn’t appealing enough, keep in mind there’s an entire festival surrounding this contest. There will be a slew of local vendors and live music from Attila & Friends, Melange, Knights of the Van Duzen, and many more. No one should launch flying saucers on an empty stomach, of course, so the Bridgeville Fire Department will be barbecuing hamburgers and hot dogs. That is a lot of fun and entertainment for a free event. — Dev Richards

Klamath Salmon Fest If there’s one thing we don’t have a shortage of in HumCo, it’s festivals dedicated to fish (I’m counting bivalves as fish in this instance). No complaints, of course; fish is delicious and festivals are fun! This weekend, Saturday, Aug. 17, is the 51st annual Yurok Tribe’s Klamath Salmon Festival, and deliciously cooked salmon is only a fraction of what this festival has to offer. The day kicks off with a veteran’s breakfast at 8 a.m. at the Klamath Community Center, then a parade at 10 a.m., followed by the salmon barbecue at 11 a.m. The barbecue lunch is only $10 and includes locally caught Klamath salmon, Brio bread, salad from Ocean Air Farms and a side of fruit. Yurok Tribe Director of Public Relations Matt Mais described the traditional salmon barbecuing process over the phone: The salmon is speared onto redwood sticks and the sticks are driven into the ground at an angle, with the salmon roasting over an open flame. “It’s delicious,” he says. It’s probably safe to assume that’s true. The rest of the day’s events are more freeflowing. The barbecue keeps coming throughout the day, and so does the entertainment. There’s a classic car show, a cribbage tournament, a traditional Indian card game tournament and a traditional stick game tournament. Mais said there was no way to compare the card game to any game people might already be familiar with. “It includes traditional drumming and singing, and takes about four hours to complete.” The stick game tournament is a “combination of lacrosse and wrestling.” This isn’t like rugby-style, athletic scrambling, but actual wrestling, as in pinning another person to the ground via a series of strategic holds, but with lacrosse. All of these events are free, too. The only charge is for the salmon lunch. The Yurok Klamath Salmon Festival is more than just a good time; it’s a chance to experience the rich cultures that are such a vital part of HumCo. Plus, delicious food. Head on over to for more information. — Dev Richards

ELYSIUM. Writer/director Neill Blomkamp left a pretty outsized footprint on the cinematic landscape with his breakthrough 2009 debut, District 9. With its elegant visual effects, delicately balanced humanism and uniquely shabby dystopian aesthetic, that movie became a runaway hit and was eventually nominated for a best picture Oscar. As a follow-up, Elysium feels a little familiar, with Blomkamp going back to his toolkit both thematically and visually, but it satisfies nonetheless. In mid-22nd century Los Angeles (looking a lot like the Johannesburg of District 9), reformed car thief Max Da Costa (Matt Damon) sticks to the straight and narrow, punching the clock at a factory, assembling military droids.

longing to escape to Elysium, a colony established by Earth’s elite when the planet reached toxic population density and pollution. When an industrial accident leaves Max with five days to live, he becomes doubly motivated to get “up there,” where automated medical devices can cure diseases in seconds. He re-ups with some former associates who retrofit him with a cyborg exoskeleton and task him with stealing some very sensitive information. The heist goes sideways, and Max ends up in the crosshairs of a power hungry Elysian politico (Jodie Foster), who dispatches a marauding lunatic to pursue him. (That lunatic is played with gleefully sadistic delight by Sharlto Copley, who played the reluctant protagonist in District 9). As in District 9, Blomkamp’s mastery of digital effects takes center stage. He works on a vast canvas, producing gorgeously composed vistas of a chaotic, garbage-strewn wasteland teeming with cast-off humanity. Droids and spacecraft move in and out of frame without any suggestion that what we’re watching isn’t real. And like District 9, the director’s narrative vision is as grand and intentional as his visual style. Elysium can be viewed as an effective if occasionally heavy-handed allegory about class disparity. It would be inappropriate for me to assign a political agenda to art or an artist, but there are plenty of parallels to the inequities in contemporary culture. Whether Blomkamp intends this as parable or simply as a storytelling

device is for you to decide. I left Elysium thinking of it as an extension of District 9, which isn’t necessarily good or bad. Some will likely find fault with the similarities in texture and tone, and I don’t disagree. But those parallels demonstrate the talents of a self-assured, even masterful modern filmmaker. I like Blomkamp’s style and his narrative sensibility. And he certainly knows how to make a big summer action movie with heart. R. 109m. WE’RE THE MILLERS. Back in 2004, director Rawson Marshall Thurber struck unexpected comedy gold (OK, maybe silver) with Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story. That movie worked because it took place in a half-absurd, half-realistic universe where surreal types co-existed with straight characters. The story remained grounded in real emotion, but the scenario was comically outlandish. This time around, Thurber tries to construct a plausible scenario in the real world — emphasis on tries. An unattached weed dealer (Jason Sudeikis) gets his stash jacked and ends up in Dutch with his idiotic millionaire boss (Ed Helms). The solution to his conundrum? Why, head down to Mexico and haul back two tons of cartel bud, of course. In a motorhome. With a fake family. This scheme is completely implausible, of course, but it’s got potential. Had it been handled with a little gravity and grit, or had any of the danger felt the least bit real, the jokes might have popped. Or if the world of the movie were completely invented, slanted toward slapstick, I might have suspended my disbelief and just let it be funny. Instead, We’re the Millers lands halfway between: We’re expected to believe that the half-baked set-up, the goofy shenanigans and the lifeless, expletive-strewn dialog are all part of the world we live in. It attempts specificity but misses by a mile, ending up so broad as to be completely un-relatable. Sudeikis plays his character as an edgy goof with a heart of gold, and he’s as likeable as ever. But this material never gives him an opportunity to do more than phone it in. And Jennifer Aniston, as the stripper masquerading as a mom, is called upon to do little beyond proving she still has a bangin’ body. Which is unfortunate: Aniston is a talented comedic actress and this role is almost embarrassing for its lack of depth and dimension. There are a few funny moments scattered throughout (often thanks to Nick Offerman and Kathryn Hahn), but sloppy pacing, inconsistent tone and unconvincing atmosphere hamstring this one. R. 110m. — John J. Bennett


KICK-ASS 2. Foul-mouthed, self-invented high school superheroes return to fight crime with help from Jim Carrey. R. 113m. JOBS.

LEE DANIELS’ THE BUTLER. Hell, not even Scorsese puts his name in the title, but the director of Precious slaps his moniker on this sweeping biopic of a butler (Forest Whitaker) who served eight presidents over three decades at the White House. PG13. 126m. PARANOIA. Corporate espionage thriller starring Amber Heard, Liam Hemsworth, a shaved-headed Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman. PG13. 106m. ¡Andale! On Friday, ride into the Arcata Theater Lounge for the deeply silly 1986 comedy ¡Three Amigos! starring Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and Martin Short. PG. 104m. 8 p.m. Sunday’s family feature is the delightful 2011 revival of The Muppets. PG. 103m. 6 p.m. And next Wednesday’s creature feature for Sci-Fi Pint and Pizza Night is Roger Corman’s 1959 oddity The Wasp Woman. 73m. 6 p.m.

Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish: A Novel by David Rakoff, Doubleday David Rakoff wrote the sort of books that you can never shake off; his essays grab hold of the emotional center of your brain, burrow themselves deeply into your gray matter and take root. He boils down the most complex emotional experiences into poignant and precise prose (and sometimes verse!). But at the center of most of Rakoff’s writing, there is always a coy smile, a wink that can make even devastating moments absolutely hilarious. Few writers can fit so many contrasting emotions into one line of text like Rakoff. In the summer of 2012, after battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma, he died. A year later, Rakoff’s first and last work of fiction, Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish, was posthumously published. It’s a difficult novella to describe, as there’s no true rise and fall. And there’s certainly no sense of resolution. The stories begin at the dawn of the 20th century and follow the intertwined lives of 12 people over the span of 100 years. Some characters are the siblings or children of other characters; some are more loosely connected, merely passing through the lives of others. Their stories are told via glimpses into moments that exemplify each character’s personal strife and triumph. The reader sees a struggle for pride during the Great Depression, and another man’s small victory as he finally finds a place for himself in San Francisco’s Castro district in the 1960s, only to watch all of his friends die of AIDS during the 1980s. Rakoff does not pull punches when it comes to pain, and there are moments when you think, “Should I just be reading Steinbeck?” But, unlike Steinbeck, Rakoff drenches these vignettes in a comforting charm, providing the reader with just the right amount of relief. Rather than tell these (mostly) heartbreaking tales in straightforward prose, Rakoff creates an odd juxtaposition of form and feeling by writing entirely in rhyming couplets. This could be distracting and off-putting, but Rakoff strikes the perfect balance. The rhyming offers a bit of relief from the heavy and daunting themes (see title). It’s tempting to think Rakoff is simply challenging himself by writing in couplets, but it’s more likely that he wants to express emotions in a form that captures the commonality of human suffering while also making you giggle. Rakoff’s wit and flair left behind a void that no one is likely to fill. His final book is a testament to his talent, which will be missed. — Dev Richards

THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.)

Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in Cali− fornia law.
