Jacoby’s Ladder Editor: Paul Mann’s history of HSU (a special insert in the Aug. 22 Journal) includes some of the merchants who were in Arcata when Humboldt State Normal School opened in 1913. One of the businesses he mentions is “Augustus Jacoby’s Fine Market Store.” I find this a bit peculiar. Augustus Jacoby left Arcata sometime in 1862 after his wife Elizabeth died in July of 1861. He lived for a number of years in San Francisco (while continuing to have some business dealings in Arcata for a brief time), eventually moving to New York where he died in September of 1893. To the best of my knowledge, Jacoby had no store in Arcata in in the early 1900s. If Paul knows something I do not, I would be most grateful to have him share it with me. Nan Abrams, Eureka

Violent Media Not Harmless

Editor: I appreciated Barry Evans’ columns in previous weeks about problems with the new DSM edition of psychiatric “diagnoses” (“Field Notes,” June 20 and June 27). However, in the Aug. 22 column (“Brains, Minds and Myths”), Evans erroneously implied there are no dangers to young people from violent media. But many studies prove otherwise! The American Academy of Pediatrics, American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, American Psychological Association, American Medical Association, American Academy of Family Physicians, and American Psychiatric Association wrote in a July 26, 2000, “Joint Statement on the Impact of Entertainment Violence on Children”: “Children who see a lot of violence are more likely to view violence as an effective way of settling conflicts. Children exposed to violence are more likely to assume that acts of violence are acceptable behavior. Viewing violence The distance from k = .87 to k > 1 can lead to emotional desensitization towards Struck them as “a God-given barrier,” violence in real life.

In Defense of Sergio Editor: I found Sam H. Clauder’s full page article, “Cheering the bat-thrower? Really, Arcata?” (Aug. 15) disturbing and ironic. Mr. Clauder attacks the character of Humboldt Crab Sergio Sanchez, and eventually the entire organization and its fans. In 10 years of attending Crabs games Mr. Clauder’s conduct was by far the worst I have ever seen of a fan. After the “batthrowing incident,” Mr. Clauder harassed Sergio Sanchez so belligerently and relentlessly that he was asked to leave and the police were called. I would like to attempt to set the record straight and I hope others will step forward in Sergio’s defense and help clear his name. Sergio had three straight fastballs thrown at his head. The first two narrowly missed and the third slammed into his shoulder as Sergio shrugged to protect his face. In what I can only imagine was anger, exasperation, and pain, Sergio flung his bat. From my seat behind home plate I could see that the bat sailed far to the pitcher’s right. The video circulating on the Internet was filmed from the right field line, a vantage point from which the bat appears to sail over the pitcher’s head. Regardless of intent, a bat flung from 60 feet away is far less dangerous then a fastball thrown over 90 mph. The attack on Sergio, in the form of three straight fastballs, certainly seemed unprovoked. The pain and injury caused by the ball was no doubt long-lasting. The ejection and multi-game suspension was unwarranted. The news stories online were pure sensationalism. Worst of all the harassment at the ballpark by Sam H. Clauder and his subsequent full page article in this Journal was unconscionable. I only hope the damage to Sergio’s career can be undone. Michael DeppeCarter, Eureka

Don’t Burn the Forest Service Editor: Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. It is easy to blame the Forest Service in this part of the world since these public lands are the backyard of rural communities (“Lessons in the Ashes,” Aug. 8). Certainly, fire suppression, past clearcutting, and a subsequent backlog of dense stands have resulted in a precarious situation relative to wildfire. Yet to state that the Forest Service has located fuel breaks in areas to favor logging profits is ill-informed. Ridge position fuel breaks, via thinning of trees and shrubs, aim to reduce the fuel source for lightning strikes from carrying into communities like Orleans. Fuel breaks also let fire do the work it was meant to do on the other side of the break — create stand structural diversity, stimulate seed germination … . No mention was made in the article that people continue to develop deeper into the woods and they still expect the Forest Service to protect their properties. While there are those that create “defensible” spaces around properties (good for you), there are plenty that do not. Note: the fire started inside the community near Highway 96, not as a wildfire on Forest Service land. While past practices of the Forest Service have not always considered the whole of the forest, I tire of those that keep the Forest Service locked in the past. I work for the agency and have seen the change. Take the comment about tractor logging and its “serious soil damage” (no relationship to the topic of fuel breaks). “Best management practices” — that aim to reduce impacts to soil resources — have been in place for at least two decades. The article seemed a forum for bashing the Forest Service. The bashing was not accurate; it was just easy. Unfortunately, the very complicated situation of managing (and using) wildfire in a very topographically complicated landscape and where people have built homes, was not fairly represented in this article.

More on that Matter Editor: One might add to the brain computer comparisons that a computer has no body (“Field Notes,” Aug. 8). Why does this matter, so to speak, given sayings such as mind over matter? Because, first of all, there is no telling where the brain begins or ends, and same with the body. Is it at the end of the fingertip, the eyeball, the nasal mucosa, the interior of the gut, all of which are simultaneously brain and body? Recently, a neuroscientist studying consciousness opined that the way to understand consciousness is to understand every synapse and other relationship between and among neurons and their associated neural structures. An astronomical task. In nearly the same sentence, he defined consciousness, much to his credit, as our ability to feel and sense, instead of the usual non-sense about awakening, purposeful thinking and so on. Apparently he failed to appreciate the paradoxical contradiction in that his theory of research ignores the very em-

bodiment of consciousness, the body. Bottom line: I feel, therefore I am; or, the corollary, I think, therefore I am … confused. The reversal of the significance of thinking vs. feeling illuminates the dark matter of human behavioral science, and repudiates the current medical model that our feelings are meaningless neural signals ripe for suppression with all sorts of psychotropics. It may be that Heisenberg was only partially right, that no one ever can be on the mark in the objective world, but in the realm of pure emotion, unambiguity is the hallmark. Remember the brain-computer conundrum? Solved. E-motion. Get it? Ken Miller, McKinleyville

Kemyni Johnson, a freshman from Los Angeles, wanted to be in the forest. With ocean still nearby. He didn’t know the trees were going to be so tall. And he didn’t expect so many other kids from Southern California. “It’s a nice surprise,” he says. And, yes, he is wearing red, white and blue: Crooks and Castles skateboarder shirt, Levi’s, red Nike belt, blue-and-red Nike shoes, and his sister’s Texas Rangers hat “because it matches.”

Gabby Garcia, a psych junior transferring from Palm Springs, was prepared for Humboldt to be hippie-ish. To fit in, she picked up this black giraffe smock at the Hospice thrift shop, in Arcata. Hippies aside, the quiet, cool forest is even better than Garcia had hoped.

The View from the Chopper By Ryan Burns


ongressman Jared Huffman came to town this week, along with veteran news anchor Dan Rather and his crew, to get briefed on the unholy clusterfuck that is our rogue marijuana industry. It’s an industry subsidized and metastasized thanks to the artificial price constraints resulting from the War on Drugs. On Tuesday morn-

Poison Killed Fisher at Grow

Insecticides killed a fisher found at a marijuana grow in late July, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office reports. A necropsy determined the mammal — a candidate for the endangered species list — was killed by Methomyl, an insecticide, and had rodenticide in its system as well. From the Sheriff’s Office: The necropsy of the deceased young male adult Fisher located in the marijuana garden in Six Rivers National Forest on 07-31-2013 was recently completed by a scientific team of researchers. The necropsy confirmed suspicions that the Fisher was in fact killed due to Carbamate insecticide poisoning, specifically Methomyl. Methomyl is a highly acute toxic insecticide, its use restricted by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The Fisher also had Brodifacoum a 2nd generation anticoagulant rodenticide detected in its system. The researchers believe the Fisher experienced convulsions, muscle tremors and respiratory distress during its death. There were pieces of meat believed to be hotdog inside the Fishers stomach. It was pointed out that if this hotdog were eaten by any other animal it would be toxic to that animal and this toxicant can travel through the food chain, so any scavenger eating an animal poisoned with this would also likely become ill or die.

Medical Board Disciplines Fortuna Doctor

A Fortuna doctor is facing disciplinary action from the state medical board. It’s unclear what prompted the action against longtime family practitioner George Jutila. The medical board’s order prohibits Jutila from: Treating any patient for chronic pain; Supervising, advising, or otherwise overseeing any physician assistant, nurse practitioner or other practitioner in the care and treatment of a patient with chronic pain; and Possessing — except personally by valid prescription (with notification of the Board) or as stored in the locked cabinet at the medical practice — prescribing, dispensing, furnishing, administering, or otherwise distributing any Schedule II or III controlled substances. Cassandra Hockenson, the medical board’s public information officer, said Jutila voluntarily accepted the temporary suspension. An accusation from the board is expected within 15 days. Jutila did not return calls requesting comment. Jutila was given an award by the California Medical Association in 2009 for exemplifying “ethics and practice as a rural practitioner,” the Times-Standard reported. He’s been practicing medicine in Fortuna since 1964. ●

extra releases from the Trinity Reservoir last week ruled this afternoon to lift the restraining order. See the lead up to the decision at blogjammin. The Hoopa Valley Tribe offered this statement: “The Trinity River is our vessel of life and the salmon are our lifeblood. We applaud the decision to release this water to avert a fish disaster, however this lawsuit demonstrates the need for long term solutions to the fisheries crisis in the Klamath and Trinity Rivers” stated Hoopa Valley Chairwoman, Danielle Vigil-Masten. A federal judge issued a decision lifting a restraining order holding back releases of Trinity water into the Trinity River to avert a Klamath River fish kill. The decision came after days of protests from a large group of Hoopa Valley Tribal members. Tribal members protested in Fresno, California at the Westlands Water District board meeting on Tuesday and outside the Fresno courtroom, and in Sacramento, California outside a fisheries hearing at the California State Capital building on Wednesday. From a Yurok Tribe press release: The Yurok Tribe presented key science to the court with the testimony of its two witnesses, Senior Fisheries Biologist Michael Belchik and Dr. Joshua Strange. The key to the decision was the testimony of Dr. Josh Strange, a former tribal fisheries biologist. Judge Lawrence J. O’Neill cited research completed by Dr. Josh Strange for the Yurok Tribe and noted his experience and background regarding the issues. “The Yurok Tribe will always take whatever measures are necessary to protect the Klamath River, which is our lifeline,” said Yurok Chairman Thomas P. O’Rourke Sr. “We intervened in this case on behalf the salmon and our people.” Statement from San Luis & Delta Mendota Water Authority Executive Director Dan Nelson: “Today’s decision by Judge O’Neill to lift the temporary restraining order which prevented the release of water from Trinity Reservoir results in a significant decrease in the harm originally expected to occur. Yesterday, the United States reduced their stated need of up to 109,000 acre-feet of water, which they claimed


just last week was the amount necessary, to now only 20,000 acre-feet. Clearly the scientific justification they provided last week just couldn’t hold up. ●



Dog Owner Fail

Original post: Really? Someone just drives out to Fairhaven, lets three dogs out of the truck, tells them “stay,” and drives away? Really? You, in your newer, black four-wheel drive truck, be advised that Animal Control is all over this. Updates: Sure enough, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, which runs animal control, soon named a suspect: Salvatore Ted Arena, 42, who has lived in Freshwater but apparently has left Humboldt. He was tracked partly through Craigslist postings. The sheriff’s press release reads in part: The three dogs, Angel, Becky and Ginger, had belonged to Arena’s brother who passed away suddenly in February of this 12 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, AUG. 29, 2013 •

year. Arena began trying to surrender the dogs to local rescues about one week ago stating that he was moving to the East Coast. Gail Holder of K-9 Angels Rescue had been in frequent contact with Arena and was working to try to get the dogs into foster care. She received a call from him on 08/21/13 just before the dogs were found abandoned in Fairhaven. Arena told her that he had to leave the following morning and that he could not put the dogs in his truck and take them across the country with him. While some comments on the Journal’s website online slammed the dog-dumper, others were more sympathetic, pointing out that it’s tough to place unwanted animals in Humboldt. The county shelter won’t let owners surrender their pets — it only accepts strays. Other organizations are selective about which dogs or cats they will take and which they won’t.

A Mad River media mega-monopoly has formed. Via Facebook, the Arcata Eye announced it will join forces with Northern Humboldt’s other hyper-local weekly newspaper the McKinleyville Press starting Oct. 2. And the Mad River Union was born. Arcata Eye publisher/editor/reporter Kevin Hoover announced in 2011 that the paper would cease publication in February, 2014, leading to a couple of years of rumors about who, if anyone, would fill the void. Well, it seems Hoover and Jack Durham, who publishes the McKinleyville Press, struck an accord. The veteran newsmen worked together on the Arcata Union, the Eye’s predecessor. (Journal Publisher Judy Hodgson and many other current and former Journalistas worked and wrote for the Union, as well.)

Creamery Mural Saved

As if Creamery Festival organizer Jackie Dandeneau didn’t have enough going on, what with preparing for the first-ever three-day celebration of the up-and-coming arts district, here was a City of Arcata worker tsk-tsking the mural she and seven other artists had livened up the intersection of Ninth and L streets with. Dandeneau initially feared the mural would be lost to the grinding wheels of bureaucracy, but a few well-placed phone calls stayed the City’s hand (and paintbrushes). While she’ll eventually have to appear before the City Council to discuss the matter, for now the ode to creative placemaking continued to light up the street, the district and the weekend’s festival. Arcata City Manager Randy Mendosa called to explain further. First, he said, the City of Arcata supports the festival and the Creamery District, and this should not be seen as a controversy. However,


the artists did paint a city street without permission. “I don’t believe we’re against murals,” Mendosa said, “but the City Council has to decide if they want one.” The biggest issue is what happens if the organization responsible for the mural fails to keep it up, he continued. To that end, sometimes a city will ask for a deposit. That way, if the nonprofit “loses steam,” the city can paint over it

“so it doesn’t look ugly.” Even the most advanced street paints deteriorate rapidly, so maintenance is key. Staff has been instructed to leave the street mural alone for now, but Dandeneau is expected to come before Arcata’s City Council on the matter in the future. ●

Hey, McGUinty!

Love, Cell Phones and Facebook By Jess McGuinty


ear Jess,

I fell in love with someone, and he’s now falling in love with someone else. It’s killing me. We dated for a couple years, casually at first, then by the second year pretty seriously. But we have different ideas of what we want for the future when it comes to kids and where to live. So we broke up a couple months ago. We were pretty friendly for a while. Until he got a new girlfriend. She’s sweet and more right for him. I should be happy for them, except every time I see them around town happy is not what I feel. I miss him in so many ways, and I keep running into them, so it all stays so fresh. What can I do to get over him, other than keep looking for a job that will give me a reason to move away? — Still Loving Him STILL LOVING! Dating and breaking up in a small town can really suck, and often it can feel like a minefield of exes when you leave your house. Is moving out of the area something you’ve wanted to do up to this point? That seems pretty key. If moving had already been in your five-or-whatever-year plan, then sure, keep at it. But if you love it here, have a job you like, friends you like, etc., then leaving to get away from this guy and his new lady is far too drastic. It has you running from your problems, and ultimately it will probably make you feel worse, not better. You could wind up spending even more mental energy on him, with thoughts like, “Here I am all alone in [Name of City], and they’re back in my beloved Humboldt swooning at each other over a Big Pete’s Pizza.” Not cool. You were with this guy for a few years, and the reasons you broke up were very logical, practical ones, not heated I-hate-

you-leave-me-alone ones. That makes it harder. It’s so much easier to get over people that piss you off, eh? Also, it’s only been a few months, so you need to be kind to yourself. Realize that just because your reasons were valid (and will remain valid; these are major lifestyle differences), that doesn’t mean it’s not going to hurt for a while. And that, I hate to say it, is actually OK. It means you’re human. That you care for someone. That you’re capable of caring for someone. These are really wonderful things that will serve you well the next time you meet someone. For now, though, it makes you feel like you’re stepping on your own heart every time you walk out your door. I get it. You will get over him. It’s just not as easy as wishing for it to happen and poof, there you go. You’re not walking around with hate in your heart. Be thankful for that, because that’s a shitty place to be. In the meantime, avoid places where they spend a lot of time if you truly can’t handle seeing them yet. And only make big life choices that you’d make regardless of him — not as a reaction to him.

Dear Jess,

I’ve been having issues with friends who have cell phones. The phone rings in the middle of the night and no one is on the other end. People leave messages on my machine, and I can’t understand anything or figure out who it was. I leave messages on their cell phones and they call me back and didn’t listen to my message. The question is: Do I really want a cell phone and why? Old school land lines rock and this instant shit is bullshit IMHO. — Ty TY! The complaints you cite aren’t really cell-phone specific. People can call your phone in the middle of the night, mumble

on your machine and not listen to your messages regardless of what phone they use, right? So, really, what we’re talking about here is user error. I’m not saying you need new friends — just the problem might not actually be with the cell phones. Your question is: Do you need a cell phone, and why? The answer is yes, because everyone needs a cell phone, even if just for safety. Once you call 911 for yourself or someone else, you realize it’s not so bad to have that annoying little device. And again, like your land line, you decide when and if you answer it. You decide if you engage in text messaging. You decide if you get a smart phone from which you can update your Facebook or an old-school flip phone. You’re the boss of that thing, Ty. Don’t forget that. Make that phone your bitch and only use it when you need it. But when you need it, you might be really glad you have it.

Dear Jess,

I found out through the family grapevine that my sister was reading my Facebook page and using posts and photos to find out information about me, then say mean things. (I don’t post inappropriate comments. I use the “if I don’t want my boss/mom to hear or see it, I shouldn’t post it” rule.) My sister and I don’t generally make an effort to talk to each other. We don’t have any active fights. We just have a general disagreement on values and lifestyles. When I found out it was happening, I simply un-friended her. Two or three weeks later, I got a message from her that said, “You don’t want to be my friend?” I haven’t responded. I feel confident with that decision, because nothing good can come from saying “no.” Nothing good could come from telling her where I’m getting the information. What would you do? — Don’t Really Have Time for This DON’T REALLY HAVE TIME FOR THIS! Ohhhh, the family grapevine, eh? It has long, gnarly roots for most of us, and when you add the social media dynamic, well, you’d be better off shaking up a bottle of baking soda and vinegar. First, let’s go to my theory of Facebook Makes Us All 12, All the Time. All of us. And if you know me, you know I love Facebook. But it still makes us all 12. It feels like you’re saying that given the choice, you wouldn’t be friends with your sister in real life. That’s fine. But we have created for ourselves this weird not-reallife world where we feel compelled to be

“friends,” and all hell breaks loose. My first suggestion is to evaluate the feasibility of just never replying to your sister. Ever. Ever? I don’t have any siblings, and I don’t know how often you see/talk to your sister, but it seems like it would be easier in the long run to just plow through this weirdness and address it head on. You have two main options here. One: Stop protecting the person or people who conveyed the information in the first place. Nobody wants to throw a relative under the bus, so apologize first and explain that getting through the drama is the end goal. Then you’re able to say to your sister, “No, I don’t really want to be Facebook friends if that’s what you’re going to use it for.” Two: Add your sister back but use privacy settings to manage what she sees. You can set it so your sister never sees anything, or you block her from certain posts or pictures that you’d rather she not see. You can also hide her posts in your feed. That could invite the question, “Why did you drop me in the first place?” I don’t have a great comeback to that that wouldn’t be lying, and nothing good is going to come from lying. “Facebook accidentally deleted you” isn’t a thing. Don’t even try that. My take is this: You pretty much have to have the awkward conversation, and it’ll probably come out who was sharing information. Then, you just talk about it. Like families do. After that it’s up to her to be a grownup and accept the consequences of having acted like a 12-year-old. ● Jessica McGuinty, founder of Jessicurl and master of the joyful laugh, doesn’t really think she has all the answers — but she’ll give it a try.

T Anatomy of a Fire


As acres burn by the tens of thousands, crews from around the country battle the flames Story and photos by Emily Hamann



hey were celebrating down in Hoopa when the storm rolled in on a warm, smoky Saturday. It was Aug. 10, in the middle of the annual Sovereign Day celebrations, when the tribe celebrates its independence with a parade, games, a rodeo. It had been a bad air quality day; smoke from the Butler Fire up north hung in the valley. The rodeo was underway when the lightning struck up in the mountains. “All of the sudden, the sky just gets dark,” said Allie Hostler, the Hoopa Tribe spokesperson and editor of the Two Rivers Tribune. “It was intense.” People scattered out of the open-air rodeo arena to find shelter. The power went out in Hoopa that night. The next morning, 21 lightning fires were burning in the Trinity Alps Wilderness area. Local fire crews managed to put out 10 of them. The others merged into what is now the “Corral Complex,” the most virulent of three big groups of fires scouring the mountains of Humboldt, Trinity and Siskiyou counties. The Corral fires broke out later than the still-ranging Butler Complex and the nearly quenched Salmon River Complex, and they have blackened the fewest acres so far. But the Corral Complex worries firefighters the most. It is crawling and leaping across terrain too rugged for crews to reach, and it has the potential to threaten more homes than any of the other blazes plaguing the smoke-filled mountains east of coastal Humboldt. When fires this big rage across wilderness lands, firefighters pour in from all over the country, and temporary cities of logistical support spring up — places with hastily scrawled signs and pallets full of gear. Crews scramble across the back country, bulldozing lines they hope the flames won’t cross, or

setting backfires to strategically deny the bigger blaze the fuel to advance. And with every summer thunderstorm bringing more lightning strikes, the wildfires could take new twists for weeks to come.

The fire camp

on Kimtu Road in Willow Creek is quiet on a Thursday morning. It is clear and bright today, unlike Wednesday, when smoke turned the sky a sallow gray and made the light orange. The 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. day shift has already left, going up into the mountains to build lines and lay hose. The night shift sleeps, tucked into small tents. Out by the medical yurt, crews are unpacking gear. IV bags full of something clear are pulled from cardboard boxes and laid on the back of a serious-looking red and black utility vehicle. Nearby, an ambulance waits, ready to whisk an injured person away to St. Joseph Hospital. So far, the camp hasn’t had to use it. Robert Russell, who is in charge of the medical unit, says the most common injuries are sprains and strains. “You see anything and everything,” he says. Today, he and


his team are preparing a rigging system so they can reach people who might fall into ravines and off slopes, which are steep and treacherous here. The yurt is in the middle of the fire camp, a motley sprawl of tents, trailers and modular buildings that has taken over Veterans Park. More than 1,000 firefighters and support workers sleep and eat here. The park’s tennis courts are now the supply area, stocked with fire-resistant shirts, green pants, hardhats and other supplies resting on plastic folding tables. Nearby more than 20,000 bottles of Gatorade and water sit on pallets. “It’s a small city with everything you need,” said Eric Garcia, a public information officer on the Corral Complex fire. The breeze shifts, and the faint smell of workers pumping out the portable toilets wafts through the air. When lunchtime comes, members of the California Conservation Corps deliver sack lunches to every trailer — brown bags with meat, white bags without. Corps workers, aged 18-25, get paid minimum wage. They provide support for camps at any kind of disaster, and even respond to fires. That’s according to John Button, who’s one of the people in charge of this group. You can tell because his baseball cap is yellow, while most everyone else’s on the corps is blue. Modular administration buildings are grouped together in an area Garcia calls “downtown.” Paper address signs on some of the buildings indicate that this is Main Street. Here’s the communications trailer, bringing in Internet and phone lines; the copy and printing shop; the incident com-

mander’s office; food; finance; computer specialists and even human resources. Carlton Joseph is one of the incident commanders managing the Corral Complex, along with Rob Mendes of Hoopa. “This fire, all of our lines are well away from the current fire perimeter,” Joseph says. They can’t send anyone to directly confront the flames because the terrain is too steep, and standing deadwood from a previous fire could fall on firefighters. “We’re having to back off,” he says. This will be Joseph’s 40th fire season working for the Forest Service. Firefighting is in his blood. “My father worked in the Forest Service back in the mid-50s,” he says. He was a crew boss on the 1956 Inaja Fire near San Diego. His crew was on the fire line night shift when the fire exploded and surrounded some of his guys. Joseph’s father made it out, but 11 firefighters died, including his best friend. Joseph is named after him. “My dad used to tell stories about the Forest Service,” he said. Joseph joined CalFire at age 16 and the Forest Service at 18. “And of course I liked it. I must have since I’m still here.”

Part of Garcia’s job is to

post updates on the fire all over Willow Creek and beyond. After making a stop at the copy trailer, the “mobile Kinko’s,” he calls it, he grabs a sack lunch and fills his cooler with fresh ice and bottles of water.

lies ready. When the fire gets here, water from this tank will be pumped through lines of hoses. When the fire meets the line, with no fuel, it will go out. Hopefully. Kevin Morris is in charge of safety for Division X-ray. He knows the dead standing trees are unstable, and can fall down without warning. And lightning can strike. The afternoon storm is here, and thunder booms in the distance. Morris has been working on fires for 32 years, since he was just 19. The most challenging part of worker safety is getting the crews to pull out when they’re actively fighting a fire, he says. “It’s always difficult to pull crews back. It’s in our blood. We want to work.”

To the north,

the Butler Fire continues to burn at the edge of Humboldt and Siskiyou counties. It has been burning since July 31, and combined with the now-extinguished Dance Fire, has burned more than 20,000 acres. Two camps supply crews fighting the Butler Fire, the main one at Aikens Creek Campground, just south of Orleans, and a second next to Forks of Salmon Elementary School. It is hot and smoky in early afternoon at Aikens Creek. As Joe Mazzeo, a public information officer for this fire, drives his rental car up Highway 96, the clouds start to roll in. By the time he gets to Salmon River Road, raindrops are hitting the windshield. The night before, Mazzeo says, people at a community meeting in Orleans applauded the firefighters who put out the

Dance Fire, which started on July 29. Now, as he drives through burnt remnants of the Dance Fire, a house with a green lawn and yard sits just off the highway, in the middle of a burned clearing. Along Salmon River Road, where crews have back burned to stop the fire from spreading, the hillside is various shade of brown, with a couple green trees cropping up here and there. Mazzeo says that’s called a “mosaic.” Along a one-lane stretch of Salmon River Road on the way to Forks of Salmon, security officers control each end so heavy equipment can be moved through more easily. The road winds along the side of a steep mountain, with sheer cliffs falling away to the river below. There is no guardrail. The station for ground support is a little way before the elementary school camp. This is where equipment comes to get fueled and repaired. A Les Schwab truck from Eureka sits idle, filled with tires in all sorts of sizes. At first, the Forks of Salmon was set up as a “spike” camp, a mini-camp where fire crews rest for the night. But as the fire changed direction, more and more supplies and support were sent here from Aikens Camp. There’s now a copy and printing trailer, an operations yurt, a medical yurt and more. The medical yurt has the air conditioner on; it’s still warm outside, despite the rain. The yurt is stocked with a few green army cots and a plastic folding table full of supplies — mostly calamine lotion. The strong smell of Technu fills the air. In the ops yurt, where the next attack against the blaze is planned, walls and tables are covered in maps. “The ops guys go ‘git-r-done,’” Mazzeo says. And when they need to, “Safety guys go ‘whoa.’” continued on next page

Smoke Hazards Stay Mostly Inland By Grant Scott-Goforth


he lingering smoke that’s been creating some spectacular blood-orange sunsets isn’t posing health issues along the coast, but it has sometimes reached hazardous levels inland, where fires rage. The North Coast Unified Air Quality Management District has set up temporary air monitoring stations in Orleans, Somes Bar, Sawyers Bar, Willow Creek and Hoopa, and they’re picking up trouble. Sometimes the air has been bad enough that the district has urged residents near the fires to avoid outdoor activities and get medical help for coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest pain or other respiratory problems. The gravest danger comes from particulates — the microscopic burnt minerals, ash, dust and soot that make up smoke. Small particulates, less than 2.5 microns in diameter (about the size of a bacteria), are the worst. “They get into deep reaches of lungs and it’s hard for the body to expel,” said Air Pollution Control Officer Richard Martin. Since last Sunday, 24-hour averages of small particulate levels in Sawyer’s Bar ran from as low as 3.7 micrograms per cubic meter — a “good” air rating — up to 346.7 micrograms per cubic meter on Saturday, Aug. 24. Anything over 250 micrograms per cubic meter

is considered hazardous — the highest rating on the Environmental Protection Agency’s air quality index. The levels fluctuate because winds can rapidly change air quality, and in addition to the daily average, the district’s air monitors record hourly readings. On the coast, the district’s air monitoring station on Humboldt Hill shows much lower levels of small particulates, never exceeding 12 micrograms per cubic meter — a “good” quality rating. That’s about normal for August, based on readings from a nearby station in Eureka. (The Humboldt Hill one is too new to have much in the way of historical averages yet.) Martin said the Corral Fire is burning in the footprint of the Megram fire, and dead and dying debris on the forest floor is creating a lot of smoke because it’s wet and decaying. Here on the coast, smoke colored the sky last week and left a sprinkling of ash on cars. That doesn’t necessarily spell breathing problems, though. “We generally can see, smell and taste [smoke] below levels of concern.” Martin said. Wind patterns aren’t expected to change enough for the district to issue coastal air warnings. There are two permanent air monitoring stations in the county — one in Eureka and the other on Humboldt Hill. A permanent


monitor is being installed in Hoopa, Martin said, but wasn’t calibrated in time for this year’s fire season. The district’s permanent coastal monitors search for airborne pollutants like nitrogen oxide, ozone and sulfur dioxide, which can cause lung damage and other respiratory problems. So far, there’s been no uptick in the levels of those pollutants, Martin said. When air reaches the hazardous level, the district recommends that everyone avoid outdoor exertion. In less severe conditions, those at greatest risk — the elderly, children and those with respiratory or heart disease — are cautioned to stay indoors. The district suggests when the air is bad, people should: • Minimize or stop outdoor activities, especially exercise. • Stay indoors with windows and doors closed as much as possible. • Do not run fans, swamp coolers or other systems that bring smoky outdoor air inside. • Run an air conditioner only if it does not bring smoke in from the outdoors. • Do not smoke or fry food, or do other things that will create indoor air pollution. • Seek medical help if experiencing respiratory problems.

t’s 7 p.m. on a cloudless Thursday, and Humboldt Bay shines like liquid silver under blue skies. Luke Besmer, a Hawaiian outrigger canoe enthusiast, has assembled a crew of six other paddlers eager to get out on that smooth shine. “OK, we need to get the ama attached,” calls out Besmer, “so a couple of you can strap down both iako to the hull. Everyone needs a life jacket, too.” With agile hands, two paddlers begin attaching the outrigger to the boat. They use sturdy red nylon straps to cinch into place the iako, the side spars that jut from the side of the canoe. Once firmly attached, the iako supports the ama, or the outboard float

iconic of Hawaiian outrigger canoes. By 7:20 p.m. the paddlers are primed and ready to put in. With paddles in hand and life jackets secured, the canoe of seven launches at the foot of the Samoa Bridge. We navigate around Woodley Island and catch a bit of the Eureka Boardwalk summer concert series. Then, a harbor seal pokes its head above the surface. We can hear its forceful exhale just a few feet from the canoe. Two dark eyes briefly inspect us before descending again beneath the murky tide. Gulls fly overhead. The sun sinks lower, and the bay glows in crimson, orange, and gold. Paddling an outrigger canoe on Humboldt Bay at sunset really is a little slice of heaven,

continued from previous page


especially after a long day of work. The outrigger is here at all thanks to years of work and multiple donations, much of it fueled by Besmer. He has helped create the Humboldt Outrigger Canoe Club, which organizes at least two weekly paddles on Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. Since last summer, 40 different paddlers, ranging in age from 5 to 60, have taken a turn. Besmer and fellow outrigger enthusiast Neil Kalson maintain a list of interested folks, and they announce paddling days and times on the club’s Facebook page. Regular paddlers can also get text messages from Besmer. For now, the paddles are free. Rhea Ellis-Anwyl, who has been pad-

dling with the group since January, relishes her time on board. “I get to get out on the bay and paddle with a great community of people who like doing this,” she says. “It’s a great workout with great people.” EllisAnwyl looks forward to when the group gets another boat and — ultimately — creates a Humboldt outrigger racing team for competitions on the bay and beyond. Sharon Kramer, a fish biologist at H.T. Harvey and Associates who is also an avid paddler, is helping the club become a nonprofit organization, to make paddling more sustainable for the long term. “I’d like to help the paddlers establish a more solid presence on the North Coast,” she said.

She and her husband fell in love with paddling several years ago when they lived in Australia, she said, partly “because of the great sense of community you get in paddling in a group.” Humboldt’s outrigger scene has its roots in Besmer’s days of paddling outrigger canoes in Santa Barbara, back in 2004. He enjoyed it so much he joined a club and began competing. “I love the water and feel of paddling,” says Besmer, “I knew then it was something I wanted to do for the rest of my life.” A few years later when he moved to Humboldt for college, he set out to start a paddling club here. The first thing he needed was a boat. In 2010 he sent out more than three dozen letters to outrigger clubs from San Diego to Sebastopol asking for a boat donation. Three months passed. No luck. Then a reply came from a club in Monterey. It had a burly fiberglass canoe from the 1970s, a real rhino of a boat, but watertight. With some labor and elbow grease, Besmer was told, it would be ready to take on the bay. It also came with its own trailer. By networking online with other outrigger enthusiasts, Besmer found Don Smith, a Eureka local who was willing to tow the boat from Monterey. When they got the canoe back to Eureka, Besmer and Smith realized they didn’t know exactly how to repair the fiberglass, which needed more work than they had anticipated. So, it sat on its trailer for a year near the Zerlang dock in Fairhaven.

That’s when Neil Kalson got involved. While driving the Samoa bridges, he’d noticed the beefy outrigger and wanted to know who owned it. Via Facebook, Kalson tracked down Besmer and the two created a plan to get the beast sea-worthy. Besmer, Kalson and a host of enthusiastic volunteers — including Jesse Bareilles and Monty Martin, former Greenhouse Board Shop owners — spent a month sanding and refinishing the boat. The Beneficial Living Center on South G Street in Arcata let the crew repair the boat outside in its parking area. Kokatat donated life vests. And a paddling club in Marina Del Rey donated six carbon fiber paddles. Besmer’s dad even built two new iako for the canoe. On a gray day in June 2012, the paddlers launched their maiden voyage on Humboldt Bay. Since then, Besmer has organized Thursday and Saturday paddles, and he’s planning a paddle on Tuesday evenings as well, especially now that the weather is so gorgeous. Do you want to get out there and see what it’s all about? Your chance is coming. The Humboldt Outrigger Canoe Club will be part of this year’s Paddle Fest, held in Eureka at the Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center on Saturday, Sept. 14. Can’t wait that long? Give Luke Besmer a call at 707-3427354. Or email him Check out the club’s Facebook page, too — Humboldt Outrigger Canoe Club — the pics will amaze you! ●

became aware of my guide, who was shrouded in a black monk’s cowl, an hour or so after I lost my bearings and realized I was lost. He — I’m sure it was a “he,” although I never saw his face — walked about 20 feet to my right and just slightly ahead of me, subtly indicating the way I should take. He arrived from nowhere, and disappeared into nowhere at dusk, about the time I saw a road (and safety) at the edge of the forest I’d been walking through all day. Half a century later, I can still clearly see my spirit guide in my mind’s eye. As a 19-year-old student wandering alone and lost through remote woods in northern Finland in 1962 (it’s a long story), I wonder now about my lack of wonderment! Why didn’t I speak to him? How was it possible that I just accepted this benign apparition and unquestioningly trusted his sense of direction? I didn’t tell many people about this episode for fear they’d think me crazy. I needn’t have worried. Turns out most of us have experienced something of the kind at one time or another. For instance, a 1983 study by researchers at Murray State University in Kentucky found that 57 percent of healthy volunteers had heard their name spoken by an invisible presence, while the sort of visual illusion that I’d experienced is so common among isolated sailors, mountain climbers, polar explorers, Iditarod competitors and cross-country cyclists that it’s been given a name: the third-man factor. Tales of auditory and visual hallucinations go back a long way, from Athena placating Achilles’ wrath in the Iliad, to God staying Abraham’s hand as he was about to sacrifice his son Isaac, and from Joan of

Arc taking the counsel of Saint Michael to my beloved Aunt Dorothy, whose life changed the day she heard a divinity say her name in an otherwise empty house. For better or for worse, science has tried to explain our voices and apparitions. Perhaps they result from a competition between the “controlled” brain processes in the prefrontal cortex and the automatic processes in the occipital (rear) cortex, especially when we’re under stress. Or maybe our normal body schema, our physical sense of self, sometimes gets confused into thinking that another self, a doppelgänger, is present, so our brain creates a more plausible explanation — another person — to maintain its sanity. Or my favorite proposal: At times of stress (and regularly in the case of many schizophrenic and epileptic patients) our brains revert to their ancient split state, or bicamerality. In his only book, The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, the late Julian Jaynes, professor of psychology at Princeton, claimed that we were all once “floridly hallucinatory.” Citing evidence from the 3,000-year-old Iliad and other old works, Jaynes asserted that everyone heard voices back then, as the right hemisphere of the brain “spoke” to the left hemisphere, before cultural changes caused the brain to “mend” (Field Notes, March 4, 2010). Heard any voices lately? Don’t worry, you’re not crazy. More likely, your brain is doing just what it needs to do to convince itself that it’s perfectly sane. Well, as sane as any of us are, anyway. l Barry Evans ( regrets not taking a photograph of his spirit guide, to prove his story to skeptics.

they are icy cold, changing out the cold water if necessary. Lay the sticks on a plate with paper towels to take off some of the water. Divide the zucchini up into 4-6 cocktail glasses and squeeze a wedge of lemon over each one. Finish with a pinch of sea salt just before serving, and then breeze in with the glasses on a tray like you just zoomed in on your Vespa. l

ur version of a heat wave is around 75 degrees. Still, who wants to cook when there are lawn chairs to be filled and bocce balls to be rolled? If incoming waves of zucchini and tomatoes (it’s good to have friends in Willow Creek) are keeping you in the kitchen, here are a couple of recipes to get you back out in the sun while we’ve got it.

A friend of mine was wilting in the summer heat in Rome (oh, boo-hoo — you’re in Rome) when she found a vendor at an outdoor market selling ice-cold zucchini sticks in newspaper cones. The guy was squeezing lemon juice and sprinkling salt over each cone as he passed them out to sweltering Romans. The veggies are refreshing and portable, though a glass is nicer than newsprint.

Roman Street Zucchini (serves 4-6)

Ingredients and Method: 4 cups zucchini, cut into finger-sized sticks 1 lemon, cut into wedges sea salt If your zucchini are fairly thin (like an unpeeled banana), cut them into sticks as they are. If you’ve got monster vegetables, slice them lengthwise and remove the soft, seedy center first. Fill a large bowl with water and ice cubes and set it aside. Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook the zucchini for about 3 minutes, until they are just tender (go ahead and bite one — it’s not like you can’t spare a tester) and their skin has gotten a little brighter. Don’t go too long — you don’t want them mushy. Remove the cooked zucchini and plunge them into the ice water. Keep them in the bowl for a few minutes until

Now let’s tackle those tomatoes. This warm weather pasta dish comes together quickly and sits for a couple of hours so the flavors can mingle and you can go out and enjoy said warm weather. A scoop of ricotta or slices of fresh mozzarella on top make it a full meal.

Pasta with Fresh Tomatoes and Basil (serves 4)

Ingredients and Method: 3 large tomatoes (about 3 cups), seeded and diced 15-20 fresh basil leaves, torn or finely cut 1 tablespoon flat leaf parsley, chopped 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 1/2 teaspoon salt 3/4 pound long pasta Optional: 2 cups ricotta or fresh mozzarella Mix the tomatoes, basil, parsley, olive oil and salt in a large glass bowl. Cover and let sit at room temperature for 1-4 hours. Cook and drain the pasta, then toss it with the tomato mixture. Serve with cheese for something heartier. That’s it. And look — the sun’s still out. l

Just the Ticket

This week’s guide to where to go and why By Jennifer Savage


ne of the things I love most about Humboldt is how we grow talent. Case in point, Dave Fleschner, former Trinidad resident and Mack High grad. Fleschner lives in Portland, where he plays keys with the Curtis Salgado Band. He also routinely performs around the world, including with such luminaries as B.B. King, The Pointer Sisters, Steve Miller and The Portland Symphony Orchestra. He’s making a hometown appearance on Friday, along with guitar wizard Alan Hager, at Westhaven Center for the Arts. Expect original songs, vintage blues and some Bob Dylan. Show starts at 7 p.m. and is $10 to $15 sliding scale for the general public, $8 for WCA members. Reservations strongly advised and can be made at 677-9493. Recommended for: date night — perhaps dinner at Moonstone Grill or a walk along the beach first?

Steppin’ out

Also on Friday, the Humboldt Folklife Society’s summer barn dance with caller Sue Moon and music by Blake Ritter and Sam McNeill. The dance runs from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. at Redwood Raks dance studio in the old Creamery Building. They’ll teach you the moves and partner you up. Careful — if you start socializing, you’ll fall behind in the dance-learning. Admission is $7 general or $6 for Humboldt Folklife Society members, students and seniors. Free for kids under 12. For more information, visit Recommended for: meeting a new special someone — everyone who is there is clearly on the side of good and willing to dance. That and a sense of humor are the three primary ingredients for love, amirite?


Saturday night, well, let’s just let the talent speak for themselves: “The fat one and the skinny one bring their shenanigans to Blue Lake. Funk’n’Soul all night long, until we drink enough whiskey to break into the booty jams, of course. Come shake it with us!” Yes, DJs Matt and Adam bring

the dance party to Blue Lake when they take over the Logger Bar at 9 p.m. Recommended for: getting lucky. No promises, but it wouldn’t be the first time shaking it led to making it.

Rock hard

On the other end of Saturday’s music spectrum, Humboldt Free Radio presents locals Indianola with Seattle’s Foxhole Norman at The Alibi. Ten-second impression from Foxhole Norman’s “Backseat” track: Social Distortion. Thirty-second impression from the next track, “Runaways”: Social Distortion meets Husker Du. Fortyseconds into “Relief”: Nirvana-esque. All of which I mean in the best possible ways. And now that disco and alt-folk are redefining notions of the modern rock genre, finding new takes on the classic grungy punk sound isn’t easy. This is a chance to do so. Form your own impressions at Standard Alibi protocol: Music starts around 11:30 p.m., show is 21-andover, cover is $5. Recommended for: reliving your youth. Convince your friends to go out, schedule a cab and clear your Sunday morning for recovery.

Honky tonk

Sunday brings the Mateel Community Center’s annual SoHum Beer Fest & BBQ Smoke Off. The festival title pretty much sums it up — see the calendar for details. Defining the musical aspect of the event will be Southern California surf rock band Aloha Radio and Humboldt’s number one honky tonk band Rooster McClintock. (You can

never go wrong with Rooster McClintock!) Admission is at the door only and is $15 for the BBQ and music only ticket or $25 with unlimited beer tasters and a commemorative tasting glass. The fest begins at 4 p.m. For more information, visit or call 923-3368. Recommended for: maintaining the illusion that summer will last forever. If you’re heading down from NoHum, plan to camp or book a room in Garberville or at the Benbow. Then spend Sunday marveling along one of Humboldt Redwoods State Parks’ many old-growth trails.

We are the world

Another highlight on the annual Humboldt happenings list shows up Monday with the I Block Party. The 28th celebration to raise funds for the Arcata-Camoapa Sister City Project brings the usual delish food stuffs — barbecue, local beers, cold drinks and delicious desserts — plus music from Lyndsey Battle, Lizzy & the Moonbeams, The Hip Joint and Steel Standing, all at and around the Arcata Los Bagels store from noon to 6 p.m. Recommended for: getting a do-good fix. Bring money for the silent auction.

Book of song

As a devoted fan of the written word — I own a “Reading is Sexy” bag from Shipwreck, so you know I’m legit — Seattle singer/songwriter Tai Shan’s concept album Cool to Be Weird particularly intrigues. Each song is inspired by a different book spanning from The Shining to The Sneetches. Also, this rave from CultureMob: “Tai Shan sings as if the world was unaware of beauty, and it is her task to describe it.” These things alone are enough to recommend checking out her show at Mad River Brewing on Tuesday, but if you need more, see Set begins at 6 p.m. Recommended for: nourishing your soul. Go with someone who takes such things seriously or WHO: Tai Shan go alone, it doesn’t WHERE: Mad River Brewing Co. matter. This one is WHEN: Tues., Sept. 3, 6 p.m. for you. TICKETS: Free

Big time

Big Gigantic lands at the Eureka Theatre on Wednesday, Sept. 4. This particularly excellent electronic duo comprised of saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken channels everything from funk and dubstep to house and hip-hop, elevating traditional DJ-based music via live instrumentation. Fans of improvisation will be taken by the way Salken and Lalli alternate between keys, sax and laptop, constructing a church of sound that keeps the audience worshiping (aka dancing) as long as the music plays. Big Gigantic’s cred list includes playing Lollapalooza, Hangout, Outside Lands, Austin City Limits and Bonnaroo among other high profile gigs. The all ages show starts at 7 p.m., admission is $21.50. Recommended for: seeing what the kids are into. Be chill.

Suffocating in the swarm of cranes

If you haven’t had your fill of German crust doom metal, great news! On Tuesday, Sept. 3, Metal Blade Records artists Downfall of Gaia play the Alibi along with New Jersey’s Black Table. Standard Alibi details apply (see above). Recommended for: purveyors of German crust doom metal, obv.

WHO: Downfall of Gaia WHERE: The Alibi WHEN: Tues., Sept. 3, 11 :30 p.m. TICKETS: $5 door

The Cat Came Back Yes, that guy with the hat and glasses is Bobcat Goldthwait, iconic ’80s comedian who starred in Police Academy and once lit the Tonight Show set on fire. If you don’t recognize him, it’s probably because he’s been making the funny behind the scenes in recent years, directing The Jimmy Kimmel Show and his black comedy with a heart of gold God Bless America, among other things. Now he’s back on the stand-up circuit with his “You Don’t Look the Same Either” tour. On Sunday at 8 p.m., Goldthwait is bringing his cracking voice and filthy mouth to the Arcata

Learning to (Pub) Crawl

Pegg and Wright save civilization one pint at a time By John J. Bennett


THE WORLD’S END. I think I expected this long-awaited conclusion to the so-called Cornetto Trilogy to alter the cinematic landscape of the summer. While I wasn’t disappointed in it, the film didn’t blow my mind, either. Troubled, perpetual adolescent Gary King (Simon Pegg) cons his boyhood friends into some unfinished business back in their hometown. Some 20 years ago, they attempted a legendary (probably ill-advised) pub crawl. They never made it to the finish line (the titular pub), and Gary never moved beyond the emotional high point of that debauched evening. The intervening decades have left him mired in nostalgia and addiction, while his chums, all bearing some physical and emotional scars from their association, have moved forward into adulthood. Despite nearly universal reluctance, the group reunites to take a shot at revisiting old times. Things are uneasy from the start, Gary having used some pretty base deceptions to accomplish his goal. But when a bathroom altercation with a surly teen reveals a sinister secret lurking just below the increasingly urbane superficiality of their hometown, the evening gets really complicated. Gary and company spend the night fighting for their lives, the future of human civilization hanging in the balance. Like Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz (the two previous Cornetto entries) Pegg and director Edgar Wright share writing credit. And like those movies, The World’s End is defined by a slow-burn of an opening act. More so than ever, Pegg and Wright ask us to wait for the rapid-fire jokes and action that we know are coming. They spend the first 40 minutes or so fleshing out the men, who are entering middle age with varying degrees of grace, success and self-awareness. This script is the most intricately crafted, emotionally subtle and mature work Pegg and Wright have done together. Once the aforementioned bar brawl

Five guys from the BBC walk into a bar … Pegg and company in The World’s End.

gets going, it’s off to the races. Wright’s visual style is even more clearly defined than in their earlier work, and longtime collaborator Nick Frost does the best acting of his career. The World’s End drew me in completely, but it took a while. Unlike Shaun and Fuzz, both of which set the hook almost immediately, The World’s End rewards patience. I expect it will keep getting better with multiple viewings. R. 109m. BLUE JASMINE.

continued from previous page guage and a singular viewpoint, he’s made some of the most memorable comedies in American cinema (Annie Hall). He’s also made some pointless, almost unwatchable throwaways (Scoop, To Rome With Love). Blue Jasmine may be second-tier Allen, but it has more in common with his great work than the bottom-rung stuff. The movie opens with Jasmine, born Jeannette (Cate Blanchett), arriving in San Francisco from New York via first-class flight. Her elderly seatmate can’t get a word in, then can’t wait to escape. Jasmine is damaged goods. Through a series of flashbacks, we learn about her increasingly troubled, now ended marriage to a slick financial tycoon (Alec Baldwin). We also learn that the dissolution of their union led to something of a breakdown, and that Jasmine is moving to the West Coast to be nearer her sister (Sally Hawkins), with whom she has a severely strained relationship. The bulk of the narrative is about the two women entering and falling out of relationships, with Jasmine all the while attempting to establish an identity. Previously, her efforts toward a sense of self were founded on angling for a successful husband, throwing exquisite dinner parties and jetting to St. Tropez. Blue Jasmine explores some dark psychic territory, and does so with a clear eye and remarkable self-assuredness. The actors give fine, authentic performances, particularly Blanchett. This is the sort of movie only an experienced veteran could generate, and it is noteworthy, though Allen’s catalog is so extensive, so intermittently formidable, that it feels a little like an also-ran. PG13. 98m. YOU’RE NEXT. To call this the most pleasant surprise of the weekend would be a little strange. This thing is a grisly, scary, nasty bit of business and most certainly not for all tastes. But it is also imaginative, original and a lot of fun. A wealthy couple gathers their grown children around them for a long weekend at their summer home. As soon as everyone gathers for dinner, they are set upon by killers in cartoon animal masks. The violence starts early with nothing to stop it, until Erin (Sharni Vinson), the girlfriend of one of the sons, proves herself a more formidable adversary than anyone would expect. As I’ve said time and again, the range of horror movies I enjoy is pretty narrow. But You’re Next surprised and excited me without cheap manipulation or misanthropy. The care and design of Adam Wingard’s directing is remarkable, and the script by Simon Barrett leavens the terror with a healthy sense of humor. You’re Next was a much better and more enjoyable movie than I was expecting. R. 96m. —John J. Bennett
