Gray Matter

Editor: I can appreciate computer metaphors for the brain as mentioned by Barry Evans in “Rogue Neurons” (“Field Notes,” Aug. 8), but I also value non-computer metaphors, too. I have a special appreciation for computer metaphors because I still experience the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder from early childhood abuse. And I have learned from experience that there is a neural process very similar to the “system restore” application in Windows operating systems. It took me a long, long time for me to understand why I would have relapses. But when system restore first came out in Windows XP, I realized that my brain and nervous system needed to go all the way back to my very early childhood and start everything all over again, including verbal and nonverbal communication, meaning acquisition, touching and being touched, hugging and being hugged, etc. Perhaps in some ways, that system restore process parallels the theory of rogue neurons.

But on the other hand, I can also appreciate non-mechanical and non-computer metaphors for the brain such as “the brain as a temple.” For some brains, “the brain as a temple” might sound unscientific. But in other brains, it doesn’t sound “unscientific” because inside some brains, traditional and modern science are viewed as sacred. During my healing process (the “system restore”) I restored the part of my brain that could think in metaphors and also the parts of my brain that could construct meaning. I even restored the part of my brain related to acquisition of a sense of self (as in the book Self Comes to Mind by neuroscientist Antonio Damasio). And when I restored the meaning of the word “science,” I realized that I never had to see science as something other than sacred. My brain is a sacred place (“temple”) to be in. — Orion Palomar, Eureka

Top left: Kathleen Cloney-Gardiner, Principal at the newly re-opened Winship Middle School. Bottom left: Some of the new handpicked staff. Right: The beautiful campus of Winship Middle School.

Murphy’s Welcomes Back Winship! Winship Middle School, Principal Kathleen Cloney-Gardiner Cutten’s Winship Middle School has come full circle. In 1897 the initial school, named in honor a merchant seaman, Captain Jonathan Winship, was temporarily housed in Eureka at the “E and 11th Building.” It continued as a high school until 1915, then as an intermediate school for seventh and eighth grades. In 1926 that building was torn down and replaced with the Eureka Municipal Auditorium. Captain Winship was again honored in the christening of a new Cutten school built in 1964: Winship Junior High School. Two programs, Zoe Barnum High School and adult-learning classes were recently housed at Winship and this year will inhabit Eureka’s revamped Lincoln School. Kathleen is very excited to be the new

principal with the opportunity to hand-pick the initial school staff dedicated to Common Core Standards and Project Based teaching. Common Core Standards is an approach to education emphasizing analytical and critical thinking skills. Project Based teaching is a bit like on the job training. Student groups may be asked to complete a specific project that requires thinking, planning and acting together as a team then presenting the finished product as an assignment, just like in the “real world.” Kathleen is a 5th generation Humboldt native who attended Grant Elementary, Winship and Eureka High School and received her B.A. degree from Sacramento State University. She returned to Humboldt County and after teaching elementary school for

16 years at Washington and Zane schools, she went back to college at Humboldt State University for the administrative credential that qualified her to be the principal at Washington Elementary School. The circle is now complete. Kathleen is the new principal at Winship as it reopens as a middle school in Cutten. “Winship will have student clubs, music and art programs as well as orchestra and band,” says Kathleen. “I am very proud to work for Eureka City Schools.” Murphy’s Market is proud to play a part in sustaining the Cutten and Eureka neighborhoods with healthful and fresh foods for growing families.

Fighting Words

I

n any decent Hollywood action movie, the pivotal scene is a bar fight. Chuck or Arnold or Jean-Claude walks into a bar, says something, and some joker takes offense for no good reason. A few words fly, followed by punches and bottles. Tables splinter in half and someone goes through a plate glass window. Who doesn’t love a movie bar fight? A movie would be dull if instead of swaggering into a bar, Chuck taps his request for a drink onto a keyboard in his living room and the joker who thinks he could take him taps his insult into his own keyboard across town. But that’s what I picture when I read the comments on almost any story on the Lost Coast Outpost, which would be a great name for a bar. The Lost Coast Outpost is the online news site that local radio broadcaster Lost Coast Communications launched in 2011 when its editor, Hank Sims, left his previous post at this paper. Consider Friday night’s LoCO story about the cancelation of the Mad River Summerfest concerts. Someone by the tag of “Thechinamanisnottheissue” makes this insightful comment: “Logistical issues? Another local festival takes a crap.” There is back and forth on whether the farm where the festival was scheduled to take place uses herbicides and then a poster tagged as “Guess who” says: “Quit your fucking complaining. IS THIS ALL YOUR CAPABLE OF DOING? Since you’re on such an environmental kick, did you ever stop to think about how much pollution and waste there was from the manufacturing of your computer? You know — the device you use to nag & complain with daily.” If this were an action movie, “Thechinamanisnottheissue” would get the first fist in the face. “Guess who” would get a high kick to the chest. In the movie bar fight, we recognize the people who make the asinine comments as asses, and we cheer when they go through the plate glass window. In real life, bar fights like that rarely happen. If they happened as often as they do in the movies, there wouldn’t be a bar open; they’d all be closed for repairs. In real life, even tough men try to avoid fists

to the face or kicks to the chest by keeping their mouths shut in bars. Most talk in bars between strangers is polite conversation about the Raiders or Giants or exspouses or those idiots in Congress. If you really disagree with something someone says, well, you just order another bourbon or leave. When I read the comments on the Lost Coast Outpost, I picture the same line of lonely strangers seated around the bar having an inane conversation. But instead they are each seated in front of their computer, or on their couch tapping into their tablets, a drink on the side table or a smoke in their mouth. No one needs to keep the conversation polite. An insult can’t result in punch to the nose. The comments on the Mad River Fest story weren’t unique. Back in May, many comments on the stories about the manhunt for fugitive Shane Miller were just plain nasty. More and more online sites are tightening up restrictions on commenting. In July, the Poynter Institute — where the journalism industry goes for advice — reported that ESPN.com would now require posters to register with a Facebook or LinkedIn account, which allows people to post using pseudonyms, but still makes them somewhat accountable. ESPN.com editor Patrick Steigman told Poynter’s Marie Shanahan this: “We want people to be candid — actively engage in strong and thorough debate, but do it in a way without anonymity,” he said. “Agree or disagree, but do it in a way that is as productive and civil as possible.” That’s for a site where the productive and civil discussions are pretty exclusively about the Raiders or Yanks or Sharks or Lakers and not about the idiots in Congress. Shanahan says that ESPN is just one of a number of established news sites to tighten up on online comments by requiring some form of registration. Others she found include the online sites of NPR, Salon, the Huffington Post, NBC News and Slate. Poynter reported that news organizations that require poster authentication find an increased level of civility and an overall increase in quality of discussion. But to post to Lost Coast Outpost you also have to register, either through Face-

book or Twitter or Google or a service called Disqus which lets you make up a name after you give it your email address. So that makes me wonder how bad the discourse would be if LoCO didn’t require any registration. Do we simply have a higher per capita population of idiots in this community than on ESPN? Imagine that in the bar, the two troublemakers finally stumble out because they suddenly begin to wonder where their wives have been while they’ve been tossing back Buds. After they leave, the bar conversation vastly improves. I’d like to see the Lost Coast Outpost become the go-to site for not just the quick news on what is happening locally, but also for civil discourse about what is happening in our local area. I want to sit down at my virtual local bar and have a great conversation with strangers from the community over the real beer I drink while I read. But please, if you wouldn’t say something to someone’s face in a real bar, don’t spout it online. I say that unless you have information that needs to get out and telling it will get you fired or arrested, posting anonymously is an act of a coward. Them’s my fighting words. Meanwhile, bartender, pour me a glass of milk.

imply put, the marijuana issue in America has gotten weird. Long confined to the dank and smoky shadows of the underground as a Schedule 1 narcotic, weed has come staggering into the sunlight of quasi-legality. And it’s a bit of a trip. Suddenly, there’s CNN’s chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, declaring that Americans have been “terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years” and apologizing for his role in that. At the annual Hempfest in Seattle last weekend, police officers —police officers! — handed out little bags of nacho cheese Doritos affixed with stickers that cheerfully explained the “do’s and don’ts” of recreational marijuana use, which voters have now approved in both Washington and Colorado. They called it “Operation Orange Fingers.” Seriously. (The one-ounce bags are now selling on eBay for more than $50 a pop. See? Weird.) Even here in Humboldt, where weed’s roots run deep and its resinous influence sticks to most everyone’s fingers, the dynamics have shifted. Twenty-odd years ago, pot-smoking environmentalists were chaining themselves to trees to protest destructive timber company practices. Now, indoor grow houses are gobbling electricity and industrial-scale outdoor

producers are diverting water, shearing shelves into hillsides and killing wildlife with rodenticides. And all the while, the federal government keeps raiding state-law-abiding medical marijuana dispensaries, locking up nonviolent offenders and stubbornly maintaining its dubious position — that marijuana has no legitimate medical use, that it’s as toxic as alcohol and more dangerous than cocaine, Oxy or meth. More and more people — in higher and higher positions — have been calling the feds’ bluff and, again, it’s making things weird. And to us, at least, very, very interesting. Which is why we decided it’s high time for a weekly column on marijuana news. As the seemingly unstoppable force of changing public attitudes continues to collide with the seemingly immovable object of federal prohibition, we’ll bring you the choicest nuggets from our own backyard (note to feds: that’s a metaphor) as well as interesting national and international stories. (We’ll also try to keep the stupid pot puns to a minimum.) Here’s just a taste from the past week to get you hooked. (Gah! Sorry. That’s the last one, promise.) Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber signed a bill legalizing medical marijuana dispensaries. Pot shops already exist there, but

they’ve been operating in something of a gray zone, legally. Oregon voters last year rejected a bill to legalize weed for recreational use. The National Institute on Drug Abuse released a statement to online factchecking website PolitiFact denying that marijuana is “less toxic” than alcohol. That claim was made in a 30-second ad that aired outside a NASCAR event last month. Produced by the Marijuana Policy Project and shot in the style of a beer commercial, the spot features a happy group of friends laughing on the beach while a Sam Elliott soundalike gives the voiceover: “Marijuana — less harmful than alcohol and time to treat it that way.” PolitiFact examined the “less toxic” claim and found that “science and statistics present a strong case” for the statement’s veracity. Still, the site rated the claim “Mostly True.” In New Jersey, Gov. Chris Christie agreed to ease restrictions to medical marijuana for minors. His announcement followed pleas from parents of children with epilepsy who say medical marijuana has been the only effective treatment. Last weekend’s episode of This American Life, the award-winning public radio program, recounted the story of Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman and his ill-fated attempt to regulate medical marijuana. As you may recall, Allman came up with a pioneering zip-tie program, which allowed his department to keep tabs on state-law-abiding growers while generating income to fight large-scale, industrial grow ops. The program worked so well that other counties, including Humboldt, were looking to imitate it — until the feds raided Northstone Organics, a poster child for the endeavor. The episode features interviews with Allman and Northstone owner Matt Cohen. You’ll find a link to it on our blog. Eight North Coast environmental groups including Humboldt Baykeeper and the Environmental Protection Information Center (EPIC) sent a letter to Congressman Jared Huffman expressing support for his proposed Protecting Lands Against Narcotics Trafficking Act (PLANT Act). The act would establish new penalties for environmental damage caused by marijuana grow operations that trespass on public or private lands. So we have pot ads at NASCAR events, enviro groups backing weed crackdowns and parents begging their governor for permission to give their toddlers pot — and the governor acquiescing. We need to get Sam Elliott in here with a catchphrase — something like, “Marijuana — more innerestin’ than seein’ the queen in her damned undies, and time to treat it that way.” •

continued from previous page center of water disputes since the 1950s: the Trinity Reservoir and the lower Lake Lewiston. From the reservoir, the Federal Bureau of Reclamation can either pump water through a series of dams and tunnels into the Sacramento River, where it sates thirsty farmers to the south. Or the bureau can release water into the Trinity River, which winds past Willow Creek and Hoopa before spilling into the Klamath and out to the Pacific. The Trinity Dam, completed in the early 1960s, holds more than 2.4 million acre-feet (one acre-foot would cover an acre of land with a foot of water), and both fishermen and farmers clamor for every drop. A large population of chinook salmon is preparing to swarm out of cold Pacific Ocean waters into the Klamath, and if the water is too low or too warm to keep them healthy, they will die. The dry year combined with the large run has prompted fishermen, tribes and local government officials to call on the Bureau of Reclamation to release more water into the Trinity River. That release, they argued, would help prevent a fish kill like the one in 2002, when low, warm water conspired

with disease to kill tens of thousands of returning salmon. Their proposed solution worked last year, they said, when the bureau released extra water under similar conditions that threatened an even larger run of chinook. This year, the bureau issued a plan in early August to have 2,800 cubic feet per second flowing past Requa, near the mouth of the Klamath, by Aug. 15. But on Aug. 13 — less than a day after increased flows began — a federal judge issued a temporary restraining order stopping the bureau from letting more water out of the dam. Two Central Valley irrigators — the San Luis and Delta-Mendota Water Authority and the Westlands Water District — sued the bureau, saying it didn’t have the legal authority to release water that could otherwise help farmers next growing season. The districts fear water released down the Trinity will threaten their February allotments from the Central Valley Project, the system of dams and reservoirs that helps water farms on the west side of the Central Valley from Stockton to south of Fresno. In the lawsuit, the districts say they were given only 20 percent of their contract supply this year, and barring an “extraordinarily wet winter” will face

shortages again in 2014. Water released from Trinity Lake is split just downstream at the Lewiston Dam and sent down to the Klamath or pumped through a series of tunnels, power stations and dams to the Sacramento River south of Shasta Lake, where — in wet years — it can eventually reach the Central Valley water districts. Fresno Judge Lawrence J. O’Neill delayed the release, saying he needed more evidence of a threat to fish. O’Neill scheduled a hearing beginning Wednesday and put the burden of proof on the Bureau of Reclamation — a last gasp for fish advocates. What are their chances? Tom Stokely, a policy analyst for the California Water Impact Network, said it doesn’t bode well for salmon. “It sounds like the judge is waiting for dead bodies to appear before he releases more water,” Stokely said. Earthjustice attorney Jan Hasselman was slightly more optimistic. “[We] have our work cut out to explain how important this is,” he said. While the Trinity River continues to warm, Hasselman said the hearing is a “good opportunity to step back a little bit and have the time to tell the story in more detail.”

Putting the burden of proof onto the defendants in the suit isn’t unusual, Hasselman said, but it does show that Judge O’Neill is inclined to side with the plaintiffs — at least so far. “We’re going to put on the most expert fishery biologists in the world to explain why these kinds of actions are necessary when you have critically low flow conditions and very large adult run,” Hasselman said. EarthJustice is representing the Pacific Federation of Fishermen’s Associations, which joined the Hoopa Valley Tribe and Yurok Tribe as co-defendants with the bureau after the lawsuit was filed. Some are concerned that some damage to the salmon run is already done. In press releases over the last few weeks, even before the court stopped water releases, the Hoopa Valley Tribe called the planned release “too little, too late.” The chinook are beginning to show, and they’re healthy — if reluctant — so far. The Klamath Basin Monitoring Program — a collaboration among tribes, fishermen, restoration groups and government agencies — continued a “yellow alert” for fish health last week. The alert has been in place all year due to anticipated low water, said Sara Borok, an environmental

Blog Jammin’ scientist with California Fish and Wildlife who works with the monitoring program. Fish got a little extra help when the bureau released some water before the injunction was handed down, she said. And, in a bittersweet twist, smoke-heavy air above the Klamath and Trinity Rivers — results of massive fires in Northern California and Southern Oregon — has kept rivers a bit cooler than expected. But temperatures are climbing toward 73 degrees at the mouth of the Klamath, Borok said, the maximum at which salmon migrate. Fishermen have reported to the monitoring program that they’ve seen incoming chinook salmon turn back to the ocean after encountering the warm Klamath water. It’s spawn or die for those chinook, Borok said, so the fish will only hover off the coast for a short amount of time before plunging upstream, warm water or not. Chinook essentially live off fat reserves for their last trip upriver, Borok said, further limiting the amount of time they have to finish their run. Good news so far, though: Borok said Yurok Tribe scientists haven’t reported an increase in fish disease. As fish hover at the mouth of the Klamath, Humboldt County supervisors

have called on Judge O’Neill to lift the injunction, and attorneys for both sides are preparing for hearings in Fresno. There are three possible outcomes of this week’s hearing, Earthjustice attorney Hasselman said. His hope? The judge “changes the direction he seems to be going, dissolves the injunction and the water will flow.” Or, the judge keeps the injunction, in which case there’s “a very good chance of emergency appeal to the 9th Circuit Court.” Finally, there could be an effort to “split the baby,” Hasselman said — a partial release. That’s problematic, he said, because it might not work from a biological perspective — scientists and the Bureau of Reclamation settled on a desired flow as a necessary minimum. Despite huge economic and cultural impacts that will follow Judge O’Neill’s ruling, the dispute is a drop in the bucket for California water fights, because state and federal governments have promised far more water than can be wrung out of California’s rivers. And no one knows how that’s going to work out amid a changing climate and more water demands ahead.

Summerfest Meltdown

The Facebook page for this past weekend’s cancelled Mad River Summerfest reads like a slow car crash. That queasy feeling began with the announcement of a delay “due to logistical issues” on Friday evening at 7:47 p.m., nearly two hours after The Rezonators were to take the stage. Those issues later turned out to be insurance related. At 10 a.m. on Saturday, with vendors and ticket holders already showing up for the second day of music at Christie’s Pumpkins, organizers finally cried “uncle” and posted that the concert was indeed canceled. Bands scrambled to find alternate venues, and vendors and would-be audience members asked (some rhetorically) how they’d get their money back. While vendors will be paid back, Summerfest organizers announced that they would repay ticket holders with a do-over concert. At 2:47 p.m. on Saturday, organizers for the two-day event benefiting Mad River Alliance posted the following on the festival’s Facebook page: “We paid and signed for event insurance before this weekend. Lack of communitcation with our insurance company is what

lead to the cancellation of our event. We are in the works of putting together another free event as compensation for those of you who came out, we appologize but we can not give you a refund. Our vendors will be refunded their money! We are all members of this community and are extremely disappointed as well. We love you guys! Hopefully we can make it up to you! Thank you for your support and understanding, stay posted!” It was a hopeful message, but for some who’d bought tickets ($5 for the twoday event) and camping passes ($15), not entirely satisfying. ● BY RYAN BURNS / MONDAY, AUG. 19 AT 4:37 P.M.

Chris Lehman, Fresh-Faced Candidate for State Senate

About an hour after announcing his run for State Senate, Chris Lehman, an Arcata family man and, at the tender age of 36, a Sacramento insider, sat down with the Journal for a croissant sandwich and coffee (in his own mug) at Ramone’s in Old Town. Bottom line? The guy’s prepped and ready to go. And the tracks to state ofcontinued on next page

fice have been greased. The press release announcing his candidacy includes an impressive list of Democratic endorsements including nods from Assemblymember Wes Chesbro, former Assemblymember Patty Berg, every Humboldt County supervisor save Rex Bohn, former supervisors Bonnie Neely and John Woolley, mover/shaker Patrick Cleary and Senate President Darrell Steinberg. The 2nd District’s current representative, Noreen Evans, announced last Monday that she will not seek reelection. While ignoring his oft-buzzing iPhone on the table beside us, Lehman gave polished and knowledgeable responses to questions on health care, water rights, education, marijuana and, of course, politics. Describing himself as a policy wonk with a knack for physics, Lehman said he first felt called to politics/public service while attending U.C. Davis, where he earned a double bachelor’s in physics and political science. “I think mostly it was my dad’s fault,” he said. Locals may remember his father, former Humboldt County Probation Chief Dave Lehman, who frequently traveled to Sacramento as the legislative chair for the state’s Chief Probation Officers Association. Stepping away from a career in physics, Lehman interned with longtime Silicon Valley Assemblymember John Vasconcellos and former State Senator Don Perata. He has remained active in state politics since moving back to Humboldt County in 2005. In fact, he said, “I’ve almost literally had every job in the Senate except for senator, and so the idea of being able to continue my work in the Senate this way is one I just can’t pass up.” Visit the Journal’s website to read Ryan Burns’ Q&A with Lehman and a press release.

Zebras can’t be domesticated and have been known to attack people, according to Everyday Mysteries, a Library of Congress question-and-answer website. “They still follow my dad around everywhere though,” says Juarez Jr., laughing. The zebras are not the first animals along this stretch of the Mattole Road to generate a second look—they share their pasture with two Texas longhorn cattle.

The zebras are cared for by a father and son team, Luis Juarez Senior and Junior, who make the drive from Ferndale several days a week to feed the animals and put them in at night. Juarez Sr. has cared for the zebras since they were 3 months old and newly arrived from a zebra ranch in Oroville.

Redwood Fatties

An ongoing, multi-year study of climate change effects on redwoods in oldgrowth forests has yielded results some layfolks might find surprising. Among them: Coast redwoods and giant sequoias are busting out with the big girth. “Coast redwoods in a few Northern California old-growth forests produced more wood since the 1970s than ever before in their millennial lifespans,” says a news release from Save the Redwoods League, which is leading the study. The study, Redwoods and Climate Change Initiative (RCCI), began in 2009 and is expected to continue at least another 10 years. Many bigshot research-

www.northcoastjournal.com /blogjammin

ers are taking part, including Humboldt State University’s redwood guru Stephen Sillett. The aim is to be able to predict “how rapid global climate change will affect redwoods in old-growth forests over time.” Other findings include: “Ancient redwood forests can store up to three times more carbon above ground than non-redwood forests worldwide; “California summers have warmed, but precipitation has remained highly variable and not decreased over recent decades; “Redwood height growth slows with age, but redwood volume growth increas-

es, meaning older redwoods produce more wood every year than younger redwoods.” The results underscore how important it is to preserve the 5 percent of ancient redwood forest that’s in the world, says the League’s release: “Researchers predict the northern part of the coast redwood range is likely to be the place where the fewest climate changes occur in the redwood region over the next century and may be the best refuge for coast redwoods and the plants and animals that depend on these giants.” See the full press release on the Journal’s website. ●

HSU: The Gateway Drug Some people who come for college stay hooked on Humboldt for life By Emily Hamann

A

mission-style building with plaster walls and a red tile roof sits on the top of a hill in Arcata. From its perch, Founders Hall looks out on the rest of the mismatched buildings that make up the Humboldt State University campus. For 100 years, HSU’s roots have been growing into the surrounding community. From its little hillside, the school’s

reach extends far beyond campus. Alumni are everywhere you look; they’re on city councils, they’re running businesses, they’re teaching American history to middle schoolers, they’re caring for the elderly and sick

and injured. Many of the people who shape Humboldt were drawn here by HSU in one way or another — and after they arrived, they realized they had found home.

Alex Stillman

sat in the dining room of her Victorian home in downtown Arcata. Taking a sip of plain

black tea out of an ornate teacup, she sets it back down in its matching saucer without a sound. Stillman moved to Humboldt County in 1971 after she met Ben Fairless, the man who would become her second husband, through mutual friends in San Francisco. He was a professor in the sociology department at HSU. She had just gone back to school in 1970, and planned to

continue her education at San Francisco City College and then transfer to San Francisco State to complete her bachelor’s degree in home economics. After she met Fairless, she moved to Humboldt County and finished her degree at HSU instead. “I remember the first time I went to downtown Arcata on Sunday morning,” she said. It was deserted. There were no cars, nobody on the sidewalks. A far cry from the busy avenues of San Francisco. “I thought it was eerie,” she said. “It felt like a ghost town.” She jumped into politics quickly. She was at a party with her husband and his co-workers when a political science professor told her she should run for the Arcata City Council. It felt like a way to contribute to her new home. Stillman ran on the platforms of “preserving Arcata’s heritage” and stopping a proposed freeway expansion, and in 1972 she became the first woman elected to Arcata’s City Council. “I thought at the time, ‘Oh my gosh, I’ve made a commitment to four years here.’” “Arcata was in a changing time in 1972,” she said. Environmental activists were pushing back against the logging industry, and women were pushing back against customs that kept them from succeeding professionally. During Stillman’s two terms from 1972 to 1980, the council oversaw the creation of the Arcata Marsh wastewater treatment facility and wildlife sanctuary, and the Arcata and Mad River Transit System. “Those were things that were good for us as citizens,” she said. When her term ended, Stillman branched out into historic rehab and economic development. She opened The Garden Gate on H Street. She bought and restored half a dozen historic Arcata homes, including the one she now lives in and the Phillips House Museum. “People still call me and ask me, ‘Would you help me with my paint colors?’” She also bought and renovated the property on the northwest corner of the Arcata Plaza, now home to Caravan of Dreams and Arcata Artisans. There had been a fire, and that part of the building was boarded up. Stillman used to sit in The Garden Gate and watch shoppers turn around and go back when they reached that part of the sidewalk. “Those voids are hard for people to walk by,” she said. “Plazas are supposed to be full.” Now, that part of the plaza is full of shoppers. She ran for council again in 2006, when she felt it was losing focus. “There was a lot going on on the City Council that was dealing with national issues,” she said. Stillman won and was re-elected in 2010, and doesn’t plan on running again when her term ends in 2013. She isn’t sure what else she’ll do then. She might start renovating old houses again. “I look around; I think there are places I would just love to get my hands on,” she said. “[But] everything’s more costly these days.”

She was 32 years old when she was first elected, and “I felt like I was really old,” she said. “It’s hard to believe this many years have passed.”

A community is defined by the people

who are a part of it, and towns are shaped by the people who live in them. In this way, HSU has been an undeniable force in shaping Humboldt County, bringing in people who wouldn’t have found their way here otherwise, and giving an economic boost to the region. More than three-fourths of HSU students arrive here from out of the area. Many don’t even stay to graduate. But some HSU grads never leave — on average, about 16 percent stick around, according to the Humboldt State Alumni Association. Today, 10,895 alumni live in a fourcounty region running from Del Norte to Mendocino counties. Kjell Christophersen builds economic models, and one of the things his company specializes in is studying the economic impacts of universities and community colleges on their towns all across the country. He said that in rural college towns, you are going to see more people leaving after they graduate to find jobs in bigger cities. But the ones who stay can have a significant impact on their community. “Generally, the more education you have, the more money you make,” he said. He’s the president and founder of Economic Modeling Specialists International, an Idaho company. When people stay in a community after they graduate, they take that extra money they’re making and put it back into the local economy. There’s some debate over how much a university costs its community, compared with how much it gives back in dollars and cents. One 2004 study found that public California universities, in general, don’t generate enough local sales taxes to pay for the added strain they put on parks, recreation and fire department budgets. However, Christophersen’s model includes the tax contribution of alumni in the region, and he said that the increased tax revenue of educated people living in the area more than pays for most services universities demand. Generally, he found, local taxpayers get between a 7 and 9 percent return on their investment in universities. “In most cases [the impact] is quite significant,” he said. Universities can also use their resources to work with local communities and solve local problems, according to Daniel Hurley, who is the director of state relations and policy analysis with the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. “Public universities should be stewards of places they

attended HSU right out of high school, back in 1970. She became a nurse and never left. When she first arrived, though, she didn’t think she’d last a month. Brenta grew up in Marin, and had never seen Humboldt County when she decided on HSU. She mused that she probably should have done a little research first, because she was expecting an ocean view from her dorm room. “My first impression was not what I expected,” Brenta said. “The day my parents drove me to Humboldt it was foggy and rainy at the end of summer. I was used to Marin County weather,” she said. Couple that with a bad roommate and being away from home. “I wanted to leave after the first couple of

days,” she said. After a few months, however, like a lot of freshmen do, she made friends and never wanted to leave. “I’m not into the sun anymore,” she said with a laugh. Right after she graduated, Brenta got a nursing job at the county hospital, where she worked for a year. “I always wanted to be a nurse,” she said. “I always just liked dealing with people and helping people out.” She worked with pregnant women for

20 years. “I got to see births and that was pretty amazing,” she said. Now she works as a home-health nurse, where, among her other duties, she helps dying patients and their families prepare for the inevitable. “Helping people die, it’s powerful and life affirming and life changing,” she said. “I’ve dealt with many people who are getting ready to pass,” she said. She makes them comfortable and she comforts their relatives. “We’re all going to pass,” she said. “Getting the family to see that and

to accept it and to move forward, [that’s] very powerful.” She said she’ll probably never leave Humboldt County, despite pressure in the early days from her family to move back to Marin. “I never had the impulse,” she said. “I think we’re going to be here forever.”

Like Brenta,

Kirk Goddard is another person you might not have heard of, but he has been teaching Humboldt County’s kids, one class at a time, for two decades. He is a seventhand eighth-grade social studies teacher at Jacoby Creek Charter School. He came to Humboldt from Ventura County in 1984 to get his degree and teaching credential at HSU. He had been through the area once on a vacation when he was young. “[I had] developed this romantic image of the rainforests and the beaches,” he said. Also,

“I’d decided that seventh and eighth graders at Jacoby Creek. “Seventh and eighth, that’s my place.” He said kids in middle school need teachers who want to be teaching kids that age. “They’re treated like children, and expected to act like adults,” he said. “I remember when I was a seventh and eighth grader. It was the most miserable time of my life,” he said. “I’ve been able to maintain that empathy.” In 2008, Goddard won the state History Teacher of the Year award from the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, recognizing his creativity and dedication to American history. “That was a very proud moment,” he said. Right now he is preparing for the upcoming school year, and the first day of school. “It’ll be my 19th year at Jacoby Creek.

“it was as far away from home as possible without leaving the state.” Goddard was also enticed by a major program that was perfect for him: social sciences with a single-subject teaching credential. All he wanted was to be a middle school history teacher. “I was so focused on being a teacher,” he said. He may have been a little too focused. After he graduated he struggled to get hired and his wages as a substitute weren’t enough. “I had to think, ‘Well, what else

As Goddard was wrapping

up his first year of teaching, Cassandra Hesseltine was just finishing her undergraduate degree at HSU. She would move out of Humboldt and come back before becoming film commissioner for the Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission.   Originally, it was HSU’s oceanography department that attracted her right out of high school. She had always had an interest in theater and film, but thought it was an unrealistic career path. “Joke’s on me,” she said, laughing. She ended up switching to a major in psychology with two minors, one in theater and film, and one in computers, at her father’s suggestion. “I was trying to be stable,” she said. She met the man who would become her husband while they were both students at HSU; they even had their first kiss on campus — on the staircase by Gist Hall. After they graduated, she worked with at-risk youth at a teen center, teaching theater as a form of therapy. Then in 2000 she started working in the film continued on next page

A friend of his, who was going to HSU, was having a great time, and Lubitz came here in 1972 at his friend’s recommendation. “I think, overall, it seems friendlier than the UCs.” He took whatever classes interested him, and graduated with 100 units more than required. “I wanted to start a business because I hate interviewing for jobs,” he said. Lubitz was in line at the bank when he met Holly Hosterman. They went into business together and created Holly Yashi. “It seems like there’s a great pool of talented, nice people that I want to work with here,” he said. His job allows him to take a lot of vacations. “Humboldt County is a great place to come back home to,” he said. “Why would I not want to be here?”

There’s Connie Stewart, the executive director of the California Center for Rural Policy, a research institute on the HSU campus. Before that she was mayor of Arcata and an Arcata City Councilmember. She started attending HSU in 1984. When she needed to fill a couple extra units one term, her adviser suggested the KHSU radio class. She was hooked. “KHSU is why I stayed,” she said. “I had no intention of staying,” she said. “I joke sometimes that I still think I have no intention of staying.” “You’re always planning to leave, and when you leave you always want to come back,” she said. Who can say what Humboldt would look like today without Kokatat or Holly Yashi, without so many of the nurses or teachers or researchers or politicians who first came here to study? Every year, HSU brings in new people with fresh ideas. “If we didn’t have the university,” said Arcata councilmember Stillman, “we would be a small little town.”

M

yths about the brain are easy to come by and hard to dispel. Here are a handful that keep cropping up: You are either “rightbrained” or “left-brained.” The idea stems from experiments performed on “split-brain” patients in the 1960s by Roger Sperry and Michael Gazzaniga at Caltech. In cases of extreme epilepsy, doctors sometimes resort to severing the corpus callosum nerve-bundle that links the brain’s twin hemispheres. While this often provides relief from seizures, communication between the two sides of the brain is sharply reduced, making it possible to analyze differences in the two hemispheres. The researchers were able to show that the left hemisphere is dominant in speaking and writing, while most nonverbal, spatial processing takes place in the right, giving rise to the “left-analytical, right-intuitive” dichotomy of pop-psychology. It’s far more complicated than that. Most of our behaviors essentially use all parts of our brains, and what’s going on in one hemisphere is usually complemented by activity in the other. For instance, the part of language processing that affects intonation and emphasis mostly takes place in the right hemisphere (with the left-right roles often being reversed in lefties). Also, patients with injuries in one hemisphere are often able to “train” the other hemisphere into taking over the damaged functions. Brains (particularly those of young people) are permanently rewired by violent video games, TV shows and pornography. Brains are “rewired” moment-by-moment, even while we sleep. That is, they are constantly making and breaking connections. Brains appear to thrive on novelty, so once they’re sated with violence and/or sex, they’ll find something else to latch onto.

Your brain is separate from your mind. French philosopher Rene Descartes promoted the idea of “dualism,” with our immaterial minds floating separately above our brains and somehow communicating via the pineal gland deep in the brain. Philosopher Gilbert Ryle, among others, effectively rebutted the notion, which he called the “ghost in the machine” fallacy. Nowadays, it’s easier to think of “mind” as a verb, as in, “Lungs breathe, brains mind.” (Another popular shorthand views mind as an “emergent property” of the brain.) The brain is basically a computer. This tempting analogy fails on many levels, including: (1) Brains are much (much!) bigger than any current computers; (2) Brains and computers function differently — brains are massively parallel computing machines that process far more at once than computers, which are modular (working in sections) and serial (working in a sequence), and so much less integrated; (3) Neurons aren’t as simple as binary switches. You only use 10% of your brain. Doesn’t this tired old myth know when to die? Don’t worry, you’re using all of your brain, although functional MRI and PET scans do show that different parts are more involved in different activities. But over the course of a day, all parts of your brain are busy. Brains are energy gluttons, using about 20% of your body energy while only making up two percent of your body weight, so it’s hard to see why evolution wouldn’t have dumped that mythic 90% dead weight long ago. l Barry Evans’ (barryevans9@yahoo. com) brain is just along for the ride, unlike his Field Notes anthologies (available at Eureka Books and Northtown Books), which think they’re only along to be sold.

Archers, Take Your Mark! By Linda Stansberry outdoors@northcoastjournal.com

B

ow season opened Aug. 17, but unless you’ve been practicing since The Hunger Games came out, you would be better off leaving the bucks to more experienced marksmen. “Bow hunting requires so much practice and dedication that if you picked up a bow today you might be ready by next year,” says Fred Grundman, proprietor of Grundman’s Sporting Goods in Rio Dell. Strategy is crucial. While rifle hunters can aim their weapons from far enough away that their prey won’t “wind” (smell) them, archers must stalk some of nature’s flightiest creatures at close range. “You’re really working against his [the buck’s] best instincts,” says Grundman, “It doesn’t matter how clean you are, if the wind shifts and he smells you, he’s gone.” A clear shot at very close range is essential because merely wounding the animal might mean tracking it for miles through the brush as it “bleeds out” — a slow and miserable death. Chris Ghidinelli, 32, recalls a similar mishap early in his archery career. He was using what he describes as a “crappy” bow and got in a poor shot, crippling the buck but not killing it. It got away. He mourns the lost antlers and meat, but most of all he regrets letting the animal suffer. To Ghidi-

24 North Coast Journal • Thursday, AUG. 22, 2013 • northcoastjournal.com

nelli’s credit, it’s his only lost buck over many seasons of hunting. “I don’t even aim now unless they’re within 40 yards and I know I’ve got a good shot. I know some guys who claim they can get a good shot at 50 yards with a bow, but I can’t.” This means more weekends coming home empty-handed than not, but Ghidinelli doesn’t mind. He and many other hunters enjoy bow season more than rifle season. They cite the thrill of stalking the deer, of learning its trails and its habits, of seeing the bucks when they’re still “in velvet” (toward fall the bucks lose the sensitive coating on their antlers and tend to “brush up,” or spend less time out in the open). They love the adrenaline-enhanced moment when they’re in close range to an animal that usually springs away at the first sign of humans. Or, in the wry words of another hunter: “I love bow season! There’s no gutting, no skinning, no clean-up, no hauling the carcass uphill.” In other words, none of the things associated with actually killing a buck. Bow season closes on Sept. 8, so if you’re good enough to go out, you probably already know the basics. But if not, here are some tips to get you ready for next year: Seasons and Tags: Seasons vary from region to region. Archery season generally

starts a few weeks before rifle season. Tags are pieces of paper you attach to the antlers of your buck. If you don’t have them you can look forward to being cited for poaching. You’ll need to buy tags for the region you’ll be hunting in and the type of hunting you want to do. Some regions have a very limited number of tags and/or a lottery system for getting them (but not Humboldt!). Tags are sometimes transferable across regions, seasons and sports. Any reputable sporting goods store can supply you with the tags and a guide to when and where you can use them. Equipment: Grundman recommends those new to the sport start with a compound bow, which provides more leverage than the traditional long bow. A compound bow may not resonate aesthetically — it is a camouflage plastic and metal hybrid bristling with levers, sighting devices and pure utilitarian purpose — but it requires only a fraction of the upper body strength needed for the long bow. Consult more experienced hunters about other gear most appropriate for your skill level. Err towards safety rather than comfort. A bright orange may protect you from friendly fire. A camouflage bow may help you blend into the brush. A double-reinforced camping stool that attaches to the seat of your pants and unfolds to support your weight when you need to sit and wait for game is the sales clerk’s down payment on his next ATV. Where to Hunt: Some public land is open to hunters, but some of the best locations are on private property. Befriend your local rancher or shell out for a guided hunt. Never hunt on private land without permission! Fleas, Ticks and Poison Oak: If you actually manage to bag a buck, get ready to deal with all the biting insects departing its hide for yours. Also, you’re going to be dragging said buck out of the back country during the height of poison oak season, so stock up on Technu and calamine lotion. Finally, we know some of you are thinking about this. Can you shoot that deer that’s been eating apples from your orchard with a bow and arrow? Hmm, technically that’s not discharging a firearm within city limits, but don’t go into this half-cocked. Regulations on urban archery vary from municipality to municipality, and also on how close you’ll be shooting to your neighbor’s house. Contact Fish and Wildlife to see what regulations apply to you. (Ghidinelli has given this question a lot of thought, and he hastens to add that a wounded deer can travel quite a ways, and the deer you shoot on your land might end up on your neighbor’s lawn. Depending how your neighbors feel about venison, they might not be pleased.) l Linda Stansberry is from Honeydew. Unlike a panda, she shoots, eats and leaves.

Personal suffering to global healing

arts festival with live music, pageantry, and arts and crafts. At 11 a.m., rock with the cool kids of 51 Cards on the Holly Yashi stage. And you can’t go wrong with Corey and Lyndsey at 2 p.m. on the Playhouse stage. Look for a Creamery Fest preview in the calendar and see creameryfestival.com for even more details. (On a personal note, I have an office in the Greenway Building — aka “the old Yakima building” — and watching the neighborhood blossom buoys my belief that good people can make good things happen.)

Dance your cares away

Certainly when Nahko and Medicine for The People perform at the Mateel Community Center Saturday night, the subject of transforming pain and healing into meaningful expression is to be taken seriously. Billed as “a universal message promoting personal, spiritual and communal healing,” the music Nahko originally created to solve his own identity crisis is now aimed at the larger picture of cultural wounds, environmental wrongs and social injustices. Expect an “all-inclusive, healing vibration.” This is a show for souls who’ve been wounded and seek recovery though peace, love and the opposite of cynicism. Doors open at 8 p.m., opening band TBA, tickets available at local outlets and are $15 advance, $18 at the door. For more info, visit mateel.org.

Here’s a way to feel beautiful without any suffering at all: hit up the Monophonics show at the Jambalaya Friday night. You know that feeling when you dance, the one where you’re shaking your troubles off and all that exists is the music and the movement? The funky soul action of Monophonics will take you to that place. Go to monophonics.com and just try to resist the groove. Doors at 8 p.m., music at 9 p.m., cover is $10 and the show is 21-and-over. Opening band Free Rain features Piet Dalmolen of The Nucleus, plus members of Moo-Got-2 and Bump Foundation.

Fast relief

ere is something I learned recently: Using your blow dryer to heat up your eyelash curler makes it work better, but you risk searing your eyelids if you go too long.

Beyond basic bass

What to say about the Les Claypool Duo de Twang? For those unfamiliar with Leslie Edward “Les” Claypool, the simple biography is that he’s a singer, lyricist, bassist, multi-instrumentalist and composer, best known for his work with the alternative rock band Primus. But that fails to convey the weird and wacky style Claypool has brought to the world of bass playing — and calling what he does “weird and wacky,” accurate as it is, glosses over the very real talent that’s earned Claypool a place as one of the world’s most revered musicians. Well, if not the world, at least the part of it that concerns Generations X, Y and Millennial, plus chroniclers of rock and pop culture. The Les Claypool Duo de Twang plays Humboldt Brews on Monday. Tickets are $35, show starts at 8 p.m. and is 21-and-over. Advance tickets are recommended.

The beginnings of Flume can be traced back to when Harley Streten found a music production program in a cereal box. Without the constraints of adulthood to hold him back, Streten mixed various inspirations into his own form of electronic music, one that’s gained him invites to tour with the xx, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Chet Faker.

Don’t let the awkward name deter you — the SAVAGE HENRY INDEPENDENT TIMES AND GIGGLES COMEDY FESTIVAL promises to entertain. The three-day comedy festival will be held at six different locations and features locals like Sherae O’Shaughnessy and Random Acts of Comedy, and out-of-towners like Andre Hyland and Matt Lieb (pictured). If you’re still thrown off by the name, you can call the festival by its (almost) acronym, S.H.I.T.S. and Giggles.

Who doesn’t love free food, live music and discussions of labor politics? The people who wrote the Eureka Fair Wage Act present the FAIR WAGE CAFÉ at the Eureka Labor Temple this Saturday. Josephine Johnson (pictured) will be playing, and there will be kids’ activities, good company and guest speakers.

Everything you need to know is right there in the title. SALMON, OYSTERS, ALES AND RAILS is the annual fundraiser for the Timber Heritage Foundation and the Clarke Museum. This Saturday, you’ll be able to tour the Hammond Lumber site, which includes locomotives, passenger cars from 1914 and a tour of the 1893 industrial building. There will also be music, vendor booths and speeder car rides.

The clutch of industrial buildings known lately as Arcata’s creamery district is in the midst of a revival. It’s an artsy enclave — home to the Arcata Playhouse, Redwood Raks dance studios, Holly Yashi Jewelry and the Kinetic Sculpture Lab, among others — and it’s throwing itself a three-day coming out party. Friday’s Elemental night starts at 8 p.m. west of K Street by the old creamery building, and it sounds dreamy. All those lanterns you’ve seen at the farmers market make their debut alongside huge sculptural lanterns on parade through the streets with stilt walkers and giant puppets. There’s a shadow play, salsa dancing, even a choir singing before it wraps up with an outdoor showing of Buster Keaton’s silent classic The General with a live score from a five-piece band. On Saturday starting at 11 a.m., a dozen local bands, including 51 Cards, La Patinas, Bandamonium, Lemon Lemon Cherry and Kingfoot, rock

Music 101

The Humboldt Folklife Society has five bands lined up to keep you dancing including Huckleberry Flint and The Striped Pig String Band, and the Marching Lumberjacks are cutting in. Oh, too cool for band? Perhaps you haven’t seen the suspender-rocking musicians do their thing. You’ll want to.

Culinary Arts

Not kidding about the cookies! Birthday cookies (which maybe we should all give a second look as an option) from Ramone’s are free to the masses. Also, lawn dancing works up an appetite, so Pasta Luego, Luke’s Joint, the Alibi and Cafe Brio are all coming to your rescue with take-out specials for the occasion.

Child Development

Little hands love to roam all over the Discovery Museum and HSU’s Natural History Museum, both of which have teamed up on a kids’ zone. Sneakily educational activities aren’t all, though. Strolling street performers, puppeteers, antique cars and fire truck rides round out the entertainment.

Art Appreciation

The crafty folks of Blue Ox Artisans, Humboldt Hardware and Monument Settings are demonstrating their skills for the curious. Inspired? Commemorate the day with a historically themed portrait in the photo booth. Best of all, no finals. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

Get Hopping The tenth annual Hops in Humboldt beer festival on Saturday in Rohner Park is your chance to bask in beer without the lederhosen and oompah ($40). Here’s how it’s done. First, leave the kids and pets at home. It’s a beer festival. It should also go without saying that you need an exit strategy. Plan A: Take the bus. Buses run from Fortuna to Eureka and Arcata, and the $2.75 fare spares you, other drivers, pedestrians and local law enforcement much grief. Plan B: Snag a designated driver. Non-drinkers get in for $5, and paying for your D.D.’s ticket and a day’s worth of festival grub is still cheaper and more fun than the aforementioned grief. Be generous and your D.D. may even be merciful with Facebook footage. Eat. There will be a tomorrow, so you need to put down a base. Tamales, tri-tip, “beerkissed” sundaes and frozen cookie dough on a stick are all on the menu. Order before the taps open at 1 p.m., while you still have some judgment. Drink. So many craft beers, so little time/ room in your body. Last count was 40 participating breweries bringing all manner of IPA’s, stouts, sours and more. You need a strategy. Of course you want to sip some classics, so put aside about 20 percent of your internal real estate for those. With the rest, drink around. Take advantage of the sheer variety before you and expand your palette — discover what you didn’t know you loved. Then, armed with experience, text your favorite for the Taster’s Choice Award. Be Merry. Slather on the sunscreen and revel in outdoor fun (nobody likes a festival burn). Shop the local crafts and get a temporary tattoo — no regrets! Beer-themed games are afoot, too, like beer bottle ring toss. Is beer pong over? Give Drink-O a try. That’s the name. What else do you need to know? Keep in mind all the proceeds go to area nonprofits, which means you’re not just day-drunk in the park — you’re a philanthropist. So when they shut it down at 6 p.m., hug your D.D. a little too long and roll home happy. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

Here’s something you might not know about Thoreau: Even after he was a published writer he worked in the family pencil business and contributed several technical innovations to the art of pencil making. Here’s something else: When Thoreau stayed for a year in the cabin on Walden Pond, there were active railroad tracks skirting one edge of the pond, so every day as he was writing about nature, he heard trains roar by. These tidbits (gleaned from Robert D. Richardson’s excellent biography, Henry Thoreau: A Life of the Mind) remind us that in the mid-19th century Thoreau shared a lot with recognizably modern life. As a writer his engagement with the economic, political and technological contexts of his time emerges most directly in essays he wrote for periodicals. To his observations he brought deep scholarship in Western but also Eastern literature and philosophy, and a keen appreciation of Native American cultures. Best known — and best represented in this selection — were his moral and political passions on the subject of slavery, and all it meant to America and mankind. What distinguishes this volume, however, is not the selection of essays — they add only one short piece to those in such standard collections as Thoreau: The Major Essays published in 1972. This is the latest in a series of annotated editions of Thoreau’s works by Jeffrey S. Cramer, published by Yale in the same format. On facing pages, the outer columns are annotations and the inner two columns are text. Visually this is an uncongenial arrangement, certainly for reading the text but also for the annotations. Either they crowd against the text, or the text is marooned between equal columns of white space. So the attraction must be the annotations themselves, which are indeed helpful as they clarify word meanings and topical and literary references. But with a couple of exceptions, the essays themselves are to my mind the least interesting of Thoreau’s writings. The books are more artful and entrancing, and the journal entries more striking and immediate. Still, these essays contribute, and have their champions who will likely find them enhanced by the annotations. So precise were Thoreau’s observations of plant cycles and seasons that scientists today use them to measure the effects of climate change. But the essays in particular place him more actively in the public world. (Perhaps most interesting for today is the essay on a book that prophesized wind and solar power.) They help correct the quick stereotype of Thoreau as airily detached from his times. — William Kowinski

Reviews

Kick-Ass 2. Matthew Vaughn’s KickAss (2010) is that rare comic book movie that balances humor, violence and style with unique cinematic technique. This follow-up has some of the original’s essence, but so diluted that it feels more like a pale imitation than a proper sequel. The movie opens with Dave Lizewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) back to the routine of a high school senior. Having retired his Kick-Ass alter ego, Dave finds himself bored to distraction by the lack of action. He seeks out Mindy Macready/ Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz), who has continued her training regimen. Dave convinces Mindy to get him back to fighting trim and ready for the streets. Mindy’s guardian catches wind of their antics and issues a no-vigilante-justice ultimatum. Left to his own devices, Kick-Ass seeks out a ragtag group of ill-equipped but well-intentioned copycat superheroes. Led by lantern-jawed, ax-handle-wielding, born-again Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim

Kick-Ass and Hit Girl hit the awkward stage

Carrey), they become more than the sum of their parts, and actually start doing some good. Meanwhile, Chris D’Amico/Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), on a path of vengeance from the first film, has reinvented himself as the world’s first supervillain. He whimsically names himself The Motherfucker and starts building an evil army to destroy New York City and the superheroes. As one might imagine, things come to a head. Kick-Ass 2 lacks the clarity and confidence of Vaughn’s direction. He stuck around as a producer, but handed off writing and directing duties to relative newcomer Jeff Wadlow. Wadlow does justice to the themes and tone of the first movie but loses track of fundamental storytelling elements. Character arcs and storylines are truncated, leaving their motivation dubious. The pacing is herky-jerky, and the fight sequences, shot hand-held and edited to death, lack space and spectacle. To be fair, Kick-Ass 2 isn’t all bad. Solid performances, especially by Taylor-Johnson and Moretz, fill in some of the script’s tonal gaps. Special credit goes to Moretz for keeping Mindy/Hit Girl compelling after the novelty of a foul-mouthed, curb-stomping tween has worn off. The script’s attempts to explore her burgeoning sexuality/attempts to assimilate/lost childhood are well-intentioned, though out of place. Still and all, she gives a compelling, utterly believable performance. The movie lacks Nicolas Cage’s buttoned-down mania from the original. While Jim Carrey does interesting work, his character is underdeveloped, little more than an entertaining sketch. Kick-Ass 2 doesn’t quite recapture the spot-on blend of absurdity, humor and threat that made the first movie so good. It never completely feels comfortable with its own tone — it almost gets there, but is maybe more disappointing for it.

Glimmers of potential are obscured by a thin fog of mediocrity. R. 103m. Lee Daniels’ The Butler. Director Lee Daniels (Precious, The Paperboy) traffics in the cinema of excess: painterly composition, fanatically detailed sets, operatic drama and larger-than-life characters. His work is divisive, and it tends to either work or fail completely. This time out, he gets it right. The Butler, “inspired” by true events, uses the life of White House butler Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker) as a lens through which we view the Civil Rights movement. Born into cotton field servitude and left alone by a horrible act of violence, Cecil progresses from street urchin to high society butler. His skills and subtlety land him a job on the president’s staff, and he goes on to serve eight commanders in chief. His dedication puts a strain on his own household, where his wife Gloria (Oprah Winfrey) turns to the bottle. His elder son Louis (David Oyelowo), increasingly distant from and frustrated by his father, joins the Freedom Rider movement, which leads to an association with Martin Luther King Jr. and eventually the Black Panther Party. The movie takes on a massive, difficult passage in American history and, with a few too-sentimental exceptions, handles it effectively. Forest Whitaker gives a stirring, subtle lead performance, which he could do absent a director. Oprah Winfrey, on the other hand, doesn’t necessarily have Great Actor presence, but she steals her scenes. Daniels, who coaxes great performances from actors, deserves at least some of the credit. The supporting cast is uniformly good, and includes some surprising actors as American presidents. Real danger, real sadness, real horror are all at work in The Butler, from the viscerally disturbing opening shot through the stridently hopeful closing lines. Screenwriter Danny Strong (who makes a fun cameo) swings for the fences

with this one. If mishandled, it could have been laughable. But his words find a fine handler in Daniels, whose similar tendency toward grandiosity suits the material. The result is profoundly sad, stirring and satisfying. PG13. 132m. —John J. Bennett
