Quality Time and a High Horse Editor: Regarding the growth and change, etc. for the Journal, (“Growth, Change,” Aug. 7) I would like to say this: I have not always been a champion of some of the stories, changes and changes yet again, however I feel very fortunate to have the Journal. It has made tremendous efforts to be a class rag. KHUM is another class act, although sometimes I feel compelled to turn it off. Ryan Sundberg did not want to air on KHUM way back when because he claimed there might (?!) be favoritism. Patrick Cleary was running for the same office and has interests in KHUM. Mr. Sundberg did not give the listeners a chance. Bad on him!! I think he needs to come down from his high horse and become available to the citizens ... all of US. (Get it? US!) And to Judy Hodgson: Happy slowing down or focusing elsewhere more. We only have so much quality time. Kathy Travers, Eureka

Editor: Lost Coast Wizards, NuGames and Sports Cards & More have co-written this response to the Magic: the Gathering Community. We feel that we were unfairly represented by “House of Cards” in the Journal’s Aug. 7 edition. We are all here to serve the growing Magic community of Humboldt County and do so in our unique ways. Each player approaches the game in a different way. We all facilitate a different element of those needs, and as such we believe we can coexist — the rift which was described in “House of Cards” is not and has never been an actual one. Our ultimate goal is to support the community. As the community grows it will support us. In such a small region cooperation, not enmity, is the only way to build and maintain a healthy community, and we pledge to work towards such unity.

The Politics of Water

Chesbro’s ‘no’ vote underscores changes coming in January By Thadeus Greenson


t was one of those few feel-good moments of unity in Sacramento. After months of wrangling, and with a deadline looming, the Legislature had just combined to vote 114-2 in favor of putting a $7.5 billion water bond before voters in November. Within hours of the Aug. 13 votes, Gov. Jerry Brown was signing the bill. “We’ve got a real water bond, and we’ve got Democrats and Republicans that are more unified than I’ve ever seen, probably, in my life,” Brown told the Sacramento Bee. “It was an amazing convergence over a big idea, and the big idea is that the future of California needs a lot of water and we’ve got to use it in the best way possible.” Two assemblymen weren’t celebrating that night — Wesley Chesbro (D-Arcata) and Tim Donnelly (R-Twin Peaks) — became odd bedfellows in casting the lone dissenting votes against a landmark bill. But each did so for drastically different reasons. And, in some ways, Chesbro’s vote can be seen as the end of an era, potentially the last principled, Humboldtcentric vote a North Coast state legislator will make at the expense of more popu-

lous parts of the district for the foreseeable future. Motivated in a large part by the state’s years-long drought, the bond, if passed, will cast a broad net, with $1.5 billion going to projects to protect and restore rivers, lakes and other watersheds; $900 million for drought preparedness; $725 million for water recycling; $520 million to cleanse drinking water supplies in small communities; and $395 million for flood management. But the single largest expenditure will come in the form of $2.7 billion allocated for the construction of dams, reservoirs and other water storage facilities, paving the way for California’s first new state-funded dams and reservoirs in more than three decades. It’s that last part that was a sticking point for both Chesbro and Donnelly. The uber-conservative Donnelly felt the $2.7 billion in water storage funding wasn’t nearly enough. Chesbro essentially felt the opposite. “The water bond passed by the Legislature and signed by the governor [Aug. 13] has many attractive elements, but at the end of the day this bond measure is bad news for the North Coast,” Chesbro said in a statement issued the day after the vote. “It includes $2.7 billion for water storage projects — dams and reservoirs — increasing pressure for diversion of

more Northern California river water.” Chesbro, who lives in Arcata when he’s not in the capital, was keenly aware of the controversy swirling around Humboldt County as the bond issue came to a head in Sacramento. He knew that, seeing historically low river flows, biologists were urging the federal Bureau of Reclamation to release waters into the Trinity River to increase flows and reduce temperatures in it and the Klamath River to avoid conditions similar to 2002, when tens of thousands of salmon died of gill rot disease in the Klamath. Chesbro also likely knew that biologists were reporting finding bluegreen algae blooms in both rivers. “The Trinity River — and ultimately the Klamath — is at greatest risk,” Chesbro continued in his statement, “because of existing plumbing that already diverts water from the Trinity to the Sacramento River. Increasing reservoir capacity will lead to greater demand for water from the Trinity at a time when severe and prolonged drought has significantly reduced existing snow packs.” Chesbro said he tried to secure protections for Trinity River flows, first through legislation and then through the bond bill, but was unable to get support. Without those protections in place, Chesbro said he couldn’t vote for the bill — which has been largely hailed throughout the state

(and especially in its southern reaches) as a bi-partisan compromise to address immediate needs. It seems clear Chesbro took a very localized view on the issue, said Ryan Emenaker, a professor of political science at College of the Redwoods, describing it as a “home-district” type vote. In contrast, however, Second District State Sen. Noreen Evans voted for the measure. Evans hasn’t made any public statements on the issue, so it’s unclear exactly what motivated her vote, but it was likely the prospect of her district getting some $26.5 million in funding for water quality projects or that she felt the bond was in the best interest of the state as a whole. It’s worth noting that while Sonoma and Marin counties currently don’t receive any water diverted from the Trinity River, water is diverted from the Eel River into the Russian River, which flows through Sonoma County and is used to irrigate vineyards. Exactly what Evans knows about the battle playing out over water in the Trinity and Klamath rivers and how she sees that impacted by the bond is unclear. The North Coast will have two new legislators come November and, for the first time in recent memory, neither of them will be from Humboldt County. Chesbro is being pushed from office by term limits, and Evans opted not to seek re-election.

A run-off in November will decide which of the four men from the southern parts of the Senate and Assembly districts will take their places in January. When the pair is sworn into office, it will mark the first time in the better part of two decades that a Humboldt County resident won’t be in the Legislature. Emenaker said elected officials can do a lot to get to know the far reaches of their districts, including hiring knowledgeable staff, spending time in the district and listening to constituents and local elected officials. But, Emenaker said, you don’t know any place quite the way you know home. “I think a lot of times people have great intentions and want to represent everywhere in their district, but it’s hard to understand a place’s needs if you’re not from there,” he said. “And, there are times when interests compete, when a water bond might be really beneficial to the southern part of your district but detrimental to the northern part. You might have to make a decision that puts one part of your district’s interests over another.” And it’s hard to imagine Humboldt County coming out in the positive end of that equation if pitted against the interests of these new representatives’ home cities, which — in addition to just being home — are the population centers of the district. Patty Berg, who served Humboldt as its state assemblywoman from 2002 through 2008, said votes in the district are concentrated in Sonoma County, followed by Marin County. Humboldt County comes in third, she said, which helps explain why all the candidates still standing are from the southern part of the district. Berg said she feels the district will be in good hands, noting that she’s already spoken to a couple of candidates about staffing options for their Humboldt offices. Humboldt County is simply entering into a new era of state politics, Emenaker said, noting that the impacts extend far beyond access and knowledge base. For example, Emenaker said, a politician from Santa Rosa is probably going to have different committee interests than one from Humboldt, leaving the local area with less of a voice on specific issues of interest that get hashed out in closed-door committee meetings. The county will also have two freshmen representatives with no experience in the Legislature, Emenaker noted, something Humboldt hasn’t seen in a long time. The bottom line, Emenaker said, is that local governments and citizens are going to have to work harder and make more noise to get their voices heard in Sacramento come January. Oh, and they shouldn’t expect too many more votes like Chesbro’s in coming years. ● • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014

The Best Ever?

Did you know a Humboldt State University alum recently hung up his cleats a five-time champion regarded as the best quarterback in his league’s history? No? Well, that’s probably because the league in question is the somewhat obscure Indoor Football League. Chris Dixon, an Oakland native who led the HSU Lumberjacks to an 8-12 record in two years as a starter in 2003 and 2004, announced his retirement from the Indoor Football League last month. About a week later, the IFL’s expansion franchise, the Billings Wolves, tapped Dixon to become their next head coach. For those unfamiliar with the IFL, Dixon is something of a big deal, having thrown for more than 25,000 yards and 600 touchdowns in his eight-year career, which saw him win five championships and take home three MVP trophies. Word that Dixon was returning to the Sioux Falls Storm earlier this year to finish up his career was met with unabashed revelry, with one story on saying it was the football gods’ answer to fans’ prayers and referencing Dixon as “perhaps the most electrifying and prolific quarterback to ever wear a jersey in the IFL.” If you find yourself skeptical of that statement, check out the highlight reel at, which is complete with a host of touchdowns, trash talking, a mask and one line dance with cheerleaders. Despite limited team success, Dixon posted a solid career at HSU, one that earned him all-conference honors in

2004 and a spot in HSU’s record book for most completions in a game (41, against Southern Oregon in 2003). But Dixon went undrafted by the National Football League and failed to catch on with a team, leading to his storied IFL career. Dixon’s IFL resume is so impressive, in fact, that it begs the question of whether he’s had the best pro sports career of anyone with Humboldt ties? Sure, Rey Maualuga and John Jaso have reached the pinnacle leagues of their respective sports but neither has been called the most electrifying to don a jersey. If you’re looking at stats and wins as a means of comparison, you might have to drift to another slightly obscure sport to find a parallel to Dixon’s success: professional bowling. Walter Ray Williams Jr., born in 1959 in Eureka, holds the all-time standard Professional Bowlers Association record for career titles (47) and total earnings ($4.4 million!), and remains active on the tour. And, if that doesn’t impress you, consider that Williams is also a nine-time world champion in the game of horseshoes. — Thadeus Greenson l COMMUNITY

The idea is to make it simpler for cyclists to get to and from — and through — town. What’s a tiny bit puzzling is a short detour off of I Street between Eighth and 10th streets. The boulevard will redirect cyclists traveling north or south on I Street a block west — adding two blocks of travel. It’s by no means a mandate — cyclists can ride on any city street — but it seems incongruous with the city’s goal of “free-flow travel for bikes.” It also seems to have the potential to confuse cyclists. Netra Khatri, Arcata’s deputy director of public works, said the J Street detour was proposed to ease concerns from members of the city council and traffic safety committee about congestion on I Street between eighth and 10th streets. He doubts through-traffic cyclists will take the bike boulevard for that short section. “Most people will go straight.” Councilwoman Susan Ornelas (a cyclist herself) said there was some difference of opinion about the definition of a bicycle boulevard, and what the city was trying to accomplish. “Some [council]members thought of it as a quick get-through to

get where you’re going,” she said. “The transportation safety committee — they thought of it as a nice place to access businesses from.” Ornelas said businesses on I Street were in favor of adopting I Street as the bike boulevard. “[City staff] came up with this hybrid thing,” Ornelas said. Despite the “uncomfortable” 90-degree turns that the boulevard is suggesting cyclists take, she agreed to the current design with the rest of the council in July (Councilwoman Alex Stillman was absent), not wanting to send it back to staff for more changes. Because of the relatively light construction required (to the tune of $160,000) Ornelas said the boulevard could potentially be adapted in the future. “What I appreciated about this effort was we’re going to get this nice bicycle infrastructure,” she said. “We’ll just see what happens.” Construction is slated to begin in late September or early October and will last 100 days, depending on weather. — Grant Scott-Goforth l

Cannabis Quagmire By Thadeus Greenson


early two decades after California voters passed a landmark medical marijuana law, there remains no statewide regulatory framework to govern what has now become a $1.8 billion industry. In each of the last three years, the state Legislature has attempted to bring some semblance of order to the chaos that stems from having a patchwork quilt of regulations throughout the state, with 54 counties and hundreds of cities all regulating the cultivation, purchase and sales of medical marijuana differently. Each attempt has failed. The most recent, Senate Bill 1262, authored by Sen. Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana) was unceremoniously killed Aug. 15, when the Assembly Appropriations Committee simply failed to act on it before the close of the legislative session, relegating it to the dust bin of history. Correa’s bill, authored with plenty of

input from law enforcement agencies and Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco), who has made marijuana policy reform a priority of his tenure in Sacramento, was flawed from all perspectives. It would have created the Bureau of Medical Marijuana, which would have licensed the cultivation, transportation and distribution of marijuana. It would have cost an estimated $20 million to form the bureau, according to the Legislative Analyst’s Office. Some — if not all — of that money would have been recouped by a system that would see the state charge dispensaries and growers serving more than five people $8,000 for a license. The bill also had a provision allowing for some local control, mostly by allowing cities and counties with bans on dispensaries to leave them in place — another provision dispensary owners, growers and patient advocates decried. Other prickly provision of the bill would


have barred anyone with a drug trafficking conviction from purchasing a state license and required that marijuana be transported in specially modified vehicles. Proponents of the bill said the licensing fees and strict regulations were designed to fund proper oversight, weed out bad actors and increase community safety. Opponents lambasted the bill, saying it would expose dispensaries to federal prosecution and hamper patient access. Despite the controversy, the bill passed the Senate with a unanimous vote in May, and then sailed through a pair of Assembly committees with a combined 16-3 vote before landing in appropriations. Ryan Emenaker, a professor of political science at College of the Redwoods, says most bills die in committee. Lawmakers, he says, introduce bills for all kinds of reasons — to address real problems, to please constituents and to appease lobbyists and industry groups. But, Emenaker says, there are only so many bills a legislator can really prioritize — the others are introduced so the lawmaker can say he or she did his or her part, and then relegated to committee, where they die quietly. “The difficulty with the committee process is that it’s the part of the legislative process that’s done in secret,” he says. Committee votes are recorded, but if a bill isn’t acted upon, no one really knows why. In the case of S.B. 1262, committee chair

Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Los Angeles) told the Los Angeles Times the bill was too expensive. “Not every idea can be funded by the taxpayer,” he told the paper. But that rings a bit hollow in a state that spent more than $96 billion from its general fund last year. Even if we ignore for a moment that Los Angeles alone reportedly has some 300 dispensaries that theoretically would each be lining up to pay the $8,000 licensing fee and presume the $20 million in spending to start up the Bureau of Medical Marijuana was a total loss, is that too hefty a price to bring some semblance of order to a chaos Proposition 215 has left behind? It seems far more likely the bill was shelved not because of its price tag but because of its content. And, as Emenaker notes, we’ll likely never know the real reason. Was it the influence of those in a hugely profitable industry who stand to gain by maintaining the status quo that swayed the vote? Did the committee realize the bill was potentially flawed and could limit patient access to medicine voters decided should be available back in 1996? Or, like the state’s medical marijuana law itself, did the bill just get unwieldy and complex, filled with a potential mine field of unintended consequences? Merriam Webster defines “quagmire” as follows: A situation that is hard to deal with or get out of: a situation that is full of problems. Sounds appropriate. ●

Ground Breaker Lisa Rossbacher takes over as Humboldt State’s new president By Heidi Walters




isa Rossbacher hiked all around campus on her first day on the job, July 14, as Humboldt State University’s new president, meeting the people who keep the place humming — the sign makers, the plumbers, the vehicle mechanics, the facility managers, the test coordinator, the grant writers, the ID card makers, the librarians, the printers, the keepers of the maps and plans, the garbage men, the disability coordinator, the sustainability boss, the shipping and receiving crew, the veterans helping other veterans get an education. And nearly everyone she met, she wanted their story: What do you do? How long have you been doing it? What were you doing before? What did you study? Often she probed further: Do you handle all of the university’s mail here? What have you printed on this 3-D printer? What do you find is the single most important need of veterans? What do you have in terms of chemicals that are being discarded? What about old IT? How are you tackling that big water leak? She was serious, her voice low and calm, but also quick to quip. While signing a form granting her use of a campus key, she joked, “OK, this says you can withhold my grades if I lose it.” When Facilities Services Manager Ed Goodeyon told her he’s worked at HSU

for 34 years, she teased, “Before that you were in eighth grade.” In the sign shop on campus, Rossbacher watched two HSU employees getting the official seal ready to place permanently on the time capsule that commemorates the university’s centennial. They handled the coppery disc, with a big “H” in its center ringed by the words “Humboldt State University Founded 1913,” gently. Then she and her tour guides moved briskly on to yet more formal introductions and mini interviews. The day was humid. The campus hills steep. Rossbacher, dressed in a dark pants-and-blazer combo with a green shirt, showed no sign of flagging. But at an open back door of a maintenance warehouse leading to the outside, she did pause a moment to gaze upon an unruly green space. It lacked the cultivated perfection of the formal landscaping that graces the university’s main thoroughfares. Dandelions and daisies spread wildly around picnic tables, a green bench and a tattered orange chair set randomly in the patchy

grass. An EarthTub composter squatted nearby. Empty plastic pots tipped about, and others holding plants lined a shady edge. “Does this ever get used?” Rossbacher asked. “It looks kind of nice.” “The guys sit out here,” said Traci Ferdolage, associate vice president of facilities management, adding, “It’s just an informal area.” A reporter asked if she’d mind posing in the scruffy oasis for a photo, and Rossbacher strode to one of the tables, sat, plucked a daisy and stuck it between her teeth and grinned. Then she whipped the flower out of her mouth and held it in her lap with her red leather notebook and phone case, composing herself for a more formal shot. Humboldt, meet your new president.

Lisa Rossbacher

is HSU’s seventh president, replacing Rollin Richmond, who retired this spring after 12 years at the helm — a relative short-timer, considering the lengthy terms of most of his predecessors, including fifth president

Alistair McCrone, who served 28 years. Rossbacher’s also the 100-year-old institution’s first woman president. The 61-year-old Virginia native is not, however, new to being a president. She spent the past 16 years as the head of Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta, Georgia. She was also that university’s first female president, and was the first female geologist in the country to become a university president. But being the first woman anything is not, Rossbacher says, what has motivated her. When she started her career in geology almost 40 years ago, around 10 percent of geologists with Ph.D.s were women (today, it’s a little over 40 percent). When she was chosen to try out for the astronaut training program in 1984, a few women had been in space, including American Sally Ride, but it was a mostly male arena. Today, only five of the 23 California State University system presidents are women. “It’s just that a lot of other people attracted to some of the same things I am happen to be men,” she says. Rossbacher spent much of her childhood on the Navy base in Dahlgren, Virginia, where her dad, a civilian mathematician, helped develop ballistic warheads. He also worked on escape devices for helicopters, which had to be different than those used in airplanes which eject the pilot straight up. The base also had one of the earliest space surveillance systems, which could track satellites — rare wonders, at that time. Sputnik, the first Earth-orbiting satellite, had launched just a few years before, in 1957. They knew when a satellite would be passing overhead, and sometimes everyone went outside to watch it, Rossbacher says. Rossbacher liked botany and being outdoors. She was a Girl Scout, and from fifth grade on she went to conservation education camp — first as a camper, then as an instructor and, by the time she started college, as director of instruction. She also read a lot of books — mostly fiction. Her mother was an English major, but both of her parents loved to read. “They both had very eclectic interests,” she says. “In college, they both took German, and they spoke it around the house. They thought my sisters and I wouldn’t know what they were talking about.” When Rossbacher herself took German in college, she already had a strong vocabulary. At Dickinson College, a small liberal

Then she’d write the great American novel. “I just figured I’d get my science class out of the way and do the writing and literature stuff,” she says. She got stuck with geology — and then hooked by it. “I loved the concept of time and wrapping your mind around four and a half billion years’ worth of stuff happening,” she says. “And I also liked the fact that, when I was in a geology class, I could walk out and look around me and see something about the world that I hadn’t understood an hour before.” She got her B.S. (summa cum laude) in geology, then went to State University of New York at Binghamton to work on a master’s degree with a female geomorphologist she admired. She also taught geology courses back at Dickinson College. Then she went HSU President Lisa Rossbacher with “Sting” the green to Princeton for a second master’s hornet, Southern Polytechnic State University’s mascot, and SPSU’s University Counsel Alana and a Ph.D., working with a professor Kyriakakis.

derrepresented groups, including Hispanics and women, enabling distance learning, and building strong ties with the business community. “President Rossbacher’s enormous heart for the students set her apart from other university presidents,” said former regent Willis Potts in the news release. “She cared deeply, it showed, and she made a difference in thousands of lives as a result. Humboldt State is getting a jewel!” Southern Polytechnic was actually in great upheaval when Rossbacher left, dealing with the news that it was likely going to be absorbed into the much bigger Kennesaw State University. Another in a string of consolidations the University System of Georgia has undertaken in recent years, the move came as part of an overarching scheme to streamline administrative duties, boost student opportunities and save money. Rossbacher was slated to lose her position in the deal. But, she says, long before she’d learned of the proposed consolidation, she’d been looking for a president’s post elsewhere. She says she and her husband, Dallas D. Rhodes — also a geologist, and former department chair of geology and geography at Georgia Southern University — wanted to move back West. The pair had spent about 20 years in California, and Rhode’s research focuses on the San Andreas Fault. They hoped for something with mountains or an ocean. And maybe rivers. They got all three in Humboldt.

Some press photos

show Rossbacher in a red power suit, with short blond hair sleekly coiffed. The photo that accompanied Southern Polytechnic’s announcement of her president emerita status this June showed a slightly more laid-back figure: stylish pant suit with green accents, a woven green bracelet, and medium-length, naturally wavy hair with a streak of green paint in it (green is one of Southern Polytechnic’s colors). In both photos, she wears a golden bear charm on a chain — a gift Rhodes gave her more than 35 years ago, not long after they met, and which she’s only taken off three times. She was similarly less formal (but minus the paint streak) on another recent walkabout/photo shoot on Humboldt’s campus. First, she wanted her picture taken at the art department, in a colorfully dark hallway that, years ago, was swallowed up and transformed by a sculpted representation of Jonah and the Whale. Rossbacher is a landscape watercolorist. She

likes the mixing of water and geology, the pigments derived from ground-up minerals. And she likes to use the water from the place she’s painting — if her husband’s in a river fly fishing, you might find her on the bank, painting with the river water. In Georgia, she took watercolor classes alongside university students. The professor would “out” her right away and often use her work to critique and point out errors. “I was really trying to model that it was OK to make mistakes,” she said. “And I loved the opportunity to interact with the students. There are students I was in class with, who’ve since graduated, that I still keep in touch with.” In the art hallway at HSU, she stood by a sharp-toothed window that could be the whale’s mouth and glanced around at the ornate ceiling. “I need you to tell me if I’m standing in front of something that’s got a horn coming out of it,” she joked. Back out in the bright day, traversing campus, her group surprised a pair of student ambassadors leading a tour just as one of them, Stephanie Loganayagam, was asking if any of the new students in tow were geology majors. Silence. Then Loganayagam noticed Rossbacher and said, “Hi, President!” “No geology majors?” Rossbacher asked, looking at the group. “I’m a geologist.” She looked back at the ambassadors and said, “This is great. This is part of the standard tour?” Yes, they said, and the other ambassador, Dayshia Lesueur, laughed, reached out to touch Rossbacher’s arm and said, “Lisa, when are you going to come on our tour? When are you coming? I’m supposed to be your tour guide.” “As soon as I can get it on the schedule,” Rossbacher said. To Loganayagam she said, “If I hadn’t interrupted you, what were you about to say?” “I was going to tell them that Humboldt County is amazing because we are geologically rich, with so many land formations, so many rivers and beaches,” Loganayagam, an English major, said. Walking again, Rossbacher shared one of her favorite themes: Being a geologist is good preparation for leadership. As a geologist, you know that “you will never have all the information that you want when you have to come to a conclusion,” she said. “It might be on another planet,” she said. “It could be buried five miles beneath the surface of the earth. It could have been eroded a hundred million years continued on next page • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, AUG. 21, 2014

continued from previous page ago. It may be there and you haven’t got the technology yet, or you don’t have enough money to afford the technology to get to what you need. But if you wait until you have all the information that you want, you will never make a decision. And geologists understand that.” She said she has many goals as president of Humboldt State, but that she also plans to build on the efforts of her predecessors. “High on the list is continuing to support the existing strengths that the university has both in the sciences and environment and natural resources, as well as the arts,” she said. Another aim is to improve diversity, much as she did in Georgia — although the needs of Humboldt are quite different from those of Southern Polytechnic, which is ethnically and racially very diverse. “The issue there was that the percentage of women students was only about 22 percent,” she said. There, Rossbacher said, the university needed not only to entice more women into the technological sciences, such as engineering, math and computer science, but to figure out how to keep them. She founded a women-in leadership program, and promoted the hiring of more female faculty and staff to provide more female mentors and role models. At Humboldt, where there’s a good balance between men and women, it is racial and ethnic diversity that could still use a boost to build on the gains made by Richmond’s administration. There are more tasks ahead. University presidents, everywhere, face budget challenges — “and that’s not just about not having enough money,” Rossbacher said. “It’s figuring out how to manage the resources that the institution already has in ways that are sustainable.”

This could include making operations more efficient and generating more revenue through partnerships with the private sector, she said. Humboldt students, meanwhile, have been emailing her to share their concerns ever since her presidency was announced. They want a bigger voice in conversations on campus. They’re worried about the rising price of higher education as costs shift from the state to them and their parents. They’re also concerned, as are faculty Rossbacher’s talked to, about the decline in tenure-track faculty over the past five or so years, while the number of students has increased. This can make it harder for students to connect with faculty, access advising and do research. In a bigger community, there’d be a larger pool of adjunct faculty to draw upon, Rossbacher said. In small Humboldt, the solution probably lies in the budget. For example, she said, when there’s money to add faculty positions, make them tenure-track ones. “But it doesn’t happen in a single year,” she said. “It’s part of a longer, strategic


plan.” The process for developing a new strategic plan — which happens every five or so years — has just begun. “If strategic planning works the way it’s supposed to, it will identify the major priorities for the institution,” Rossbacher

said. “And that will then help us with developing a whole set of implementation plans that focus on the academic programs, co-curricular programs, athletics, facilities, budget, housing … and then that helps us understand where we need to invest our resources.”

Back in her office, Rossbacher picked up a green Slinky from her desk and began to demonstrate the waves in an earthquake. With a straight nudge, the Slinky’s rings rippled forward in compressional, in-line waves. With a twist, the Slinky started to wiggle with transverse waves, looking like a sidewinder. Compressional waves move faster and are the first ones you feel in an earthquake, Rossbacher said. The slower transverse waves come next. Eventually they mingle, but one might be able to tell how far away a quake is by noting the time lag between the two wave types, which increases with distance. On a broad windowsill sat two soft globes: Earth and Mars. On her book shelves, a selection of mostly leadership and geology works, including the old field manual Rossbacher used on a geology trip in 1985 to Humboldt. Several slide rules sat on another shelf. “This was my father’s,” she said, picking up one. “And this was my uncle’s, who was an engineer.” She lifted a third. “And this is what I used in college. I used to carry one in the glove compartment of my car and use it to calculate mileage. This was before cars had computers that would tell you what your miles per gallon were. People used to look at me like, ‘Are you crazy?’” But she’s not stuck in the past. Geologic time, after all, stretches back to the beginning of time but also moseys and shakes right on up to the present. As soon as Rossbacher arrived in Humboldt, she got set up with Twitter and Instagram accounts. In one tweet, she says she found the Moon Trees — redwoods whose seeds orbited the moon in 1971 before being planted on campus. “I’m not entirely in the rhythm of doing it yet,” she said of the new social media. “But I find the two formats interesting in very different ways. The Twitter is really quick — so I’ve found myself really thinking about what the message should be.” Tango, Rossbacher’s and Rhodes’ Doberman, also has a Twitter account. On April 6, on a preview visit with her people, Tango tweeted (with Rossbacher’s help), “The mouth of the Mad River looks like Dog Heaven to me!” An Aug. 10 tweet reveals that Tango has discovered how COLD the North Coast water is. But on Aug. 13, she tweeted, “I think I’m going to love being a California girl.” l

Before You Get Smashed


By Jennifer Savage


Drinking is fun. Being drunk not so much. See the line between the two? Blurry, isn’t it? Put down the wine glass and get some water instead. 2. What’s your tomorrow look like? Life is short — do you really want to give up a whole day to being a dehydrated,

dark-circled, headachy wreck unable to spend more than 10 minutes vertical without wanting to: a) retch; b) pass out; c) flagellate yourself; d) all the above? 3. Who are you going to need to apologize to? Your long-suffering friends? That’s not the end of the world. Your boss? Let’s look at how often drunkenness

5. You might actually be an asshole. Some people are happy drunks. Some are belligerent ones. Some are having a fine time and really loving you, man, until something reminds them of that one time and that one thing and suddenly they — or let’s be honest, you — wreck the mood by dredging up old offenses and refusing to shut up because at this point you are a brakeless train speeding hard for disaster with no hope of derailment. And even if you have a point, and you do, dammit, you’re in no condition to discuss, this is not the time or place, and you’re going to regret it even more when, in your crooked frame of mind, you reread the angry/ sad/pathetic texts that you knew, deep down, were a bad idea even when you pressed send. If you weren’t so drunk, you could’ve caught yourself. Now, not only have you, by default, lost the debate, but you also have to figure out how to atone. Because you’re not actually an asshole. It’s just that being so drunk makes you seem like one! But that’s a distinction that ceases to matter at some point. Sorry. BONUS: Save money! Drinking is expensive. In addition to protecting your health, reputation, self-esteem and righteous way of life, you’ll save lots of dollars by learning the oft-unappreciated art of moderation. Yeah, it sounds boring — “moderation” — but save the extremes for the good stuff. Like sports. Or love. l

equates with competence. Oh, right — never. Social bonding over a drink or two can be a lovely part of work life. Slurring, “As a matter of fact …” and launching into a diatribe about how you really feel about that project will not enhance your standing. You know what’s a fine option after the first couple drinks? A club soda with lemon. So refreshing! If you’re the boss, you should already know better. If you’re out at, say, an Arcata establishment, and you find yourself saying to your cute employee, “Oh, don’t worry, it won’t affect your job if you don’t want to go out to dinner,” that’s not just bad form, but a potential lawsuit. You’re cut off. 4. Are you up for those awkward morning-after calls? You know how sometimes you black out when you drink too much? And then you’re trying to remember what happened? Did you use a condom? Did you get a name? Did you puke in someone’s car? Again? So you find yourself dialing up a friend who was there and starting off with, “Hey, that was fun last night,” then pausing to add, “… right?” On the upside, you might have an opportunity to practice gratitude — an action that is good for you, good for the world — because your friends will likely reassure you that it was fine, that you totally weren’t an asshole at all, hey, we’ve all been there. Of course, maybe they’re just being nice.

College Cuisine Sustenance in a budgeted hurry


1603 G St., Northtown Arcata

24 North Coast Journal • Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014 •

By Jennifer Fumiko Cahill


irginia Woolf once said that one cannot study well, party well or love well if one has not eaten well. Maybe she didn’t say it exactly that way, but you get the point. Yet our student years are often the nadir of our gastronomic Bell curve, a time when haste, thrift and general lack of skill lead us to bad choices when our brains and bodies most need sustenance. A brief survey/trip down memory lane in the Journal offices turned up a list of the usual college cuisine staples: instant ramen, quesadillas and boxed macaroni and cheese (off brand, of course — Velveeta is for the 1 percent). One staff member shared a recipe (well, “recipe” is strong) for canned chili, American cheese singles and hot sauce stolen from Taco Bell that got him through exams. Another, who spent a semester in New Zealand, shared a late-night, post-revelry snack misleadingly called “Toasties” by the Kiwis. Sounds nice, right? All warm and crispy, maybe cut into little squares? No. It’s not. It’s prepared by drunkenly slathering white bread with butter, slapping down processed cheese and scooping on canned spaghetti. Then you hide the whole car wreck by topping it with another slice of bread and smashing it in a panini press. It will sizzle, ooze and smell sort of good. And in truth, the messy, wet, black New Zealand sheep of the grilled cheese family is ketchup-y sweet, salty, fatty and requires almost no chewing. All the processing is already done for you. But afterward, while you may not be physically hungry, there is an ineffable emptiness. And shame. Sandwich shame. Here is something you can whip up

with what’s likely in your kitchen already. It’s cheap, but won’t cost your dignity. Adapted from Williams-Sonoma’s Pasta Sauces, this one is good enough to serve to guests. Invited guests, not just people who won’t leave your couch.

Pasta with Eggs, Pecorino and Black Pepper

Let’s be real — pecorino romano cheese is marvelous and worth the cost tenfold, but Parmesan in a shaker is more likely in a student kitchen. It still works. Also, your mom called and she wants you to make a salad. Ingredients and method: 1 box of short pasta 3 eggs 1/4 cup grated pecorino or a handful (who has measuring cups?) of cheapo powdered cheese 1 splash of milk freshly ground pepper to taste 1 stick of butter (you’re young — live it up while your metabolism holds out) salt to taste Beat the eggs and add in the milk, cheese, a pinch of salt, pepper. Boil the pasta according to the package directions, but take it out a minute early. Drain the pasta gently — don’t shake off too much water. Melt the butter in a large frying pan on low and toss in the pasta. Pour the egg mix over the pasta, turn the heat up to medium and stir everything until the eggs are cooked but still very moist. Should only be a minute or two. Plate (or bowl or inverted Frisbee) and enjoy on the couch. l • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, AUG. 21, 2014

School’s In!

And thus we celebrate musical abundance By Jennifer Savage


i, students! We can tell you’re back because our HSU-related entertainment options just blew up. The fine talent bookers responsible for AS Presents have added DJ Shadow and Dirty Heads with Rome to the fall lineup. Tickets for all this year’s AS Presents shows go on sale Friday, Aug. 22. In related news, let’s start out with a quick look at this week’s Van Duzer schedule. On Thursday, you’ve got your soulful, bluesy, roots rock with Amos Lee ($48 general/$22 HSU students). On Sunday, you’ve got your honest, real, raucous rock with Gov’t Mule ($35/$25). And on Tuesday, you’ve got your Latin, hip-hop, funky good times with Ozomatli ($35, $10). All shows start at 8 p.m.

Moving on to shows suitable for starving college students and regular working class folks alike, there’s an early show at The Bat Cave (1164 11th St. in Arcata) featuring Sacramento songwriting legend Be

Brave Bold Robot, Arcata wordsmith and Absynth Quintet bass player John Ludington, and Humboldt sound-collagists thelittlestillnotbigenough. This delight of words-plus-music starts at 7:30 p.m. Technically free, but cash appreciation is encouraged. Moving into the night and to the east, touring acts Carrie Nation & the Speakeasy and Filthy Still infuse the Logger Bar with twang and spitfire starting at 9 p.m. If you’re under 21, you can do what the kids used to do back in the aughts — set up your lawn chairs outside the bar and enjoy the music from the outside. Free. Back over in Arcata, all-female powerhouse Zepparella gets the Led out (groan) at Humboldt Brews. Show starts at 9:30 p.m. and tickets are $20 and I recommend you score yours in advance — Zepparella’s mastery of How To Rock Hard means it’ll likely sell out. More coverage available courtesy of R&B soulsters Blue Rhythm Revue, who promise to sign, seal and deliver both classic tracks and more modern hits at the

Ludington and Be Brave Bold Robot again or if you didn’t make it to the Bat Cave or if, well, there’s no shortage of reasons to go into The Siren’s Song Tavern where the two aforementioned will round robin songs through the night. A million years ago when I hosted middays on KSLG, John and BBBR’s Dean Haakenson sat down in the airbooth with me and played one brilliantly eccentric song after another. It was wonderful. The laughing and swooning commences around 8 p.m., the show is free and all ages. Up the way, the Palm Lounge hosts local favorites The Trouble and Companion Animal. This’ll be The Trouble’s first show in four months, so expect the rock n’ roll to be especially righteous. Start time is 9 p.m. and the bands recommend you donate $5 at the door. Over in A-town, the horns are heavy and the grooves monstrous with Soulsapiens and Free Rain at Humboldt Brews. This one starts around 9:30 p.m., is $10 and 21-and-over. At the Alibi, Hang the Old Year joins Arcata’s Indianola, starting around 11 p.m. HtOY’s brand of updated prog rock emerges through a psychedelic filter as it extends outward to capture listeners in a lingering embrace. All that for only $5!

Palm Lounge at 9 p.m. Free, 21-and-over. For those preferring doom and death sludge in their night, Seattle’s Bell Witch (named after an infamous Tennessee poltergeist) and Portland’s Ephemeros play the Alibi starting around 11 p.m. If this is your genre, note that Ephemeros has been lauded for musical expertise by Pitchfork. Cover’s $5, show is 21-and-over. With that, let’s move on to …

Sunday: For the Folkin’ Youth

Set the day aside for Folked in the Face: A Benefit for the Ink Annex (the Placebo’s venue space), featuring five acts of note: Tapeworm aka local Force of Nature bassist Will Stephens, Cornbread Kelly, Rizzy, Brett the Truck aka amazing caterer Brett Shuler and Griddle Cakes, a Colorado-native duo that plays upbeat, foot-stomping cowboy tunes. This is a fine opportunity to support Humboldt’s artistic and music-loving youth. Don’t be sketched out about the downtown Eureka location. Go be part of something good. The concert and accompanying barbecue start at noon and go till 6 p.m. In addition to the music, attendees can procure custom screen prints and provide their own artwork to the Framewall Bathroom Gallery. Cover is $2. All proceeds benefit the Placebo and Giant Squid Artists’ Collective, two DreamMaker Projects of the Ink People Center for the Arts. Food comes with entry and, in an unusual twist, beer will be available to those 21-and-older with ID.

Fortuna is far enough inland that the sun beats down just a little harder. On a typical August afternoon, you can run through the sprinkler or take a dip in the above-ground pool. Or on Saturday Aug. 23, you can sample a seemingly unlimited number of beers and ciders, while contributing to local nonprofits at Hops in Humboldt ($40, $35 advance). From 1 to 5 p.m., Rohner Park will be transformed into a Pinocchio Pleasure Island of microbreweries, live music and local wares. Your ticket gets you a commemorative glass, which you can fill over and over again with samples of more than 100 beers from 35 breweries, including 21st Amendment, Deschutes, Ninkasi and more. Not a beer drinker? Can’t have gluten? Not to worry, there are multiple ciders to choose from, including Sonoma Cider and Crispin. Pace yourself; that’s a lot of booze. No one wants to drink in silence. The festival features four musical acts to accompany your whistle-wetting. The day’s performances include Amanda Gray and Whiskey Savage, The Dirty Rats, Ishi Dube and Vintage Rock N’ Soul. These bands run the gamut from reggae to rock, appealing to toe-tappers of all sorts. Again, pace yourself; you’ve got a lot of suds to sample and a lot of dancing to do. In fact, it’s a good idea to add some food to the mix. You can’t let an empty belly slow you down, after all. There will be nine food vendors on site, with options for everyone’s hankerings. Even with a packed gullet, there’s still a chance of overdoing it. So, plan your transportation in advance. You’ve got plenty of options. If you can’t get a designated driver, you can take advantage of Redwood Transit’s “Catch a Ride” rate of $3 oneway, or $4.90 round trip. Once you’re in Fortuna, there’s a free shuttle service throughout town. — Dev Richards

Don’t call me “dude”

Give and Take

Dystopia’s a pleasure, but growing up isn’t for everyone By Dev Richards


THE GIVER. The film adaptation of Lois Lowry’s The Giver has been floating around Hollywood for years, always with Jeff Bridges attached. The dystopian young adult novel is a staple in a lot of middle school classrooms and it’s apparently very close to Bridges’ heart. After years of film limbo, the movie finally made it to production, and it was worth the wait. Set during an unknown time, in an unknown place, The Giver is essentially a sci-fi coming-of-age story. Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) lives in a community where everything is controlled. The weather is always perfect, there is always peace and every day is structured down to the minute. All the members of the community are content and unaware of life ever being different. When Jonas graduates and receives his job assignment as “the receiver,” everything begins to change. He must work with “the giver” (Bridges) to receive all the memories of the way things were before the change. As he learns more and more about the way things used to be, about the experiences and opportunities that used to exist, it becomes apparent that he is the only one who can return the world to the old way. The plot doesn’t contain many surprises and the exposition is rough, but these elements aren’t the driving force behind The Giver. At least 10 percent of

the film is thematic montage, used to demonstrate the extent of the information Jonas is receiving from the Giver. There is a subtle bleed of color over time, as it begins to take over Jonas’ black and white vision. The rest of the film is mostly focused on the emergence of sensation and perception for Jonas, making it more about emotion than story. This is a young adult story, after all; as a primer for future sci-fi readers, the ratio of plot to emotionality is the perfect introduction. Bridges, unsurprisingly, nails his role as the weary prophet and Meryl Streep’s portrayal as the chief elder is as perfectly executed. The rest of the cast is forced into a bland corner by the nature of their roles, making their performances less than memorable, but acceptable. This includes the small cameo from Taylor Swift as a naïve, musical ingénue. Hats off to screenwriters Michael Mitnick and Robert B. Weide, who made a lot of tiny changes to the book’s original plot, but didn’t damage the essence of the story. Similar compliments to director Philip Noyce (Patriot Games); he wasn’t too heavy-handed with the film’s themes of love and pain, making it more accessible to an audience of a variety of ages. Likely, The Giver will get lost in the swarm of recent sci-fi picks for teens and tweens, but hopefully its cult following as a book will help it stand out from the crowd.

BOYHOOD. Richard Linklater has an odd obsession with nostalgia; a fair portion of his films (Before Sunrise, Dazed and Confused) focus on capturing the essence of an era or the mood of a moment. His newest film, Boyhood, doesn’t deviate from his favorite theme; in fact, it kicks the theme into high gear and takes the audience on a nearly three-hour tour of childhood. No need to buckle your safety belts; it’s a very slow ride. The film starts with Mason (Ellar Coltrane) at 6 years old and follows him until he is 18. The plot doesn’t deviate from what you would expect of a coming-ofage story. Mason’s parents are divorced and he spends a majority of his time with his sister (Lorelei Linklater) and mother (Patricia Arquette). Through the years, Mason’s father (Ethan Hawke) appears from time to time, sharing wisdom and laughter with his son before he leaves again. Boyhood’s main focus is how Mason is affected by life changes and stressors, like dealing with his mother’s abusive new husband or falling in love for the first time. Depsite massive critical acclaim, Linklater’s gimmick did little to elevate what is a typical story of a boy becoming a man. The film was shot over a 12-year span, using the same cast throughout. Linklater gets points for creativity, but his idea was better on paper. In actuality, Boyhood is a three-hour exploration of a fairly standard, privileged childhood and nothing more. By the two-hour mark, the film has long since become stagnant, the plot has become redundant and the discomfort of the theater seats wins out over the attention span. Boyhood is worth watching on DVD at home, where you can come and go at your own leisure. As a theatrical release, it feels more like a chore than a work of art. R. 165m.


WHEN THE GAME STANDS TALL. Underdogs. Inspirational locker room speeches. Social commentary. Life lessons. Football. PG. 115m. IF I STAY. Talented Chloë Grace Moretz is torn between a life of higher education or rock ’n roll love, but an accident forces her to make a tougher, spiritual decision. PG13. 107m. MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT. Oh. Look. Another Woody Allen romcom. This one wins worst poster design of the year. PG13. 100m. SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR. Comic book ultraviolence sequel brings grit, darkness and plenty of ugly back to the big screen. R. 103m. — Grant Scott-Goforth


DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. Stunning visual effects, intense battles and a story with an emotional authenticity generally unseen in summer blockbusters. PG13. 130m. THE EXPENDABLES 3. Lats, abs, ’toids, and ’ceps re-form the gang for the third installment of the old-timers’ action spectacle. This time, they bring in some (relatively) young blood, and old- and new-school don’t exactly see eye to eye. PG13. 126m. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. Unlikely heroes (including a tree, a raccoon, and Andy from Parks and Rec) guard the galaxy from boredom in this clever, edgy and dazzling sci-fi blockbuster. PG13. 121m. THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY. A fishout-of-water story pits a family of Indian restaurateurs new to provincial France against a more traditional and established restaurant owner (Helen Mirren). Warm, sincere, nostalgic filmmaking. PG. 122m. INTO THE STORM. Like Twister, but twistier. Great special effects make for a passable summer disaster flick. PG-13. 89m. LET’S BE COPS. Two dolts impersonate cops to get free stuff and become popular. Poor timing for the studio, as cops are decidedly unpopular in parts of the nation right now. R. 103m. LUCY. Director Luc Besson muddles an interesting idea with half-baked plotting, wasting Scarlett Johansson as a woman dosed with a drug that allows her to access the other 90 percent of her brain. R. 90m. TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES. Hollywood unwisely reinvents the origin story and the world’s most fearsome fighting team is duller than ever. PG13. WHAT IF. Twee rom-com pokes at the tropes of twee rom-coms, as Daniel Radcliffe seeks love in a boyfriend-sodden dream girl. From the writer of MVP: Most Vertical Primate. PG13. 98m. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill and Grant Scott-Goforth l Aug. 22 Aug. 27

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 888-988-6736 or visit this Internet Web site salestrack.tdsf. com, using the file number assigned to this case PFI-140421. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

Test Your Science Quotient By Barry Evans


hink you know science? Answer true or false: 1. The “Flammarion engraving” (above) dates to the Middle Ages. 2. Between 2000 and 2010, more murders occurred in New York City than in New York state. 3. There are more molecules in a glass of water than there are glasses of water in Earth’s oceans. 4. More people are now alive than have ever died. 5. Earth’s land area is greater than the entire surface area of Mars. 6. The U.S. government recommends drinking eight glasses of water a day. 7. Your fingernails grow at about the same speed at which the moon is drifting away from the Earth. 8. There are exactly seven colors in a rainbow.


1. False. The popular wood engraving first appeared in 1888 in Frenchman Camille Flammarion’s book on meteorology, although it does appear to be based on earlier drawings depicting medieval cosmology. It was probably created by Flammarion himself. 2. False. Any murder in New York City also occurred in New York state. 3. True, roughly by a factor of 1,000. World’s oceans = 1.4 x 1021 liters = say 6

x 1021 glasses. Number of molecules in a mole of water (18 grams) = about 6 x 1023 (Avogadro constant), that is, 6 x 1024 molecules in a 180 gram glass of water. 4. False. People born since (say) 50,000 BC = 108 billion, 15 times present world population of 7.2 billion, according to data from the Population Reference Bureau. 5. True, just. Earth’s land area = 149 million square kilometers, area of Mars = 145 million square kilometers. (Similarly, Europe’s area is slightly more than that of the U.S., 10.2 vs. 9.8 million square kilometers.) 6. False. The myth arose from a spurious suggestion, made in 1945 by the National Academy of Sciences, to ingest 2.5 liters of fluids daily. It’s now completely refuted. 7. True. Fingernails grow at about 1.5 inches per year, the same as the moon’s outward drift (caused by tidal “braking” between the moon and Earth). 8. False. The human eye can distinguish around 100 colors in a spectrum. Isaac Newton gave us seven (after originally choosing five) following the belief of Greek Sophists that musical notes and color were intimately related: seven notes in a musical scale translated into the familiar ROYGBIV — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Most people can’t distinguish indigo as a separate color. l Barry Evans ( yearns to see, just once, a night-rainbow.
