Meet our staff ! Daniel Kalmanson, Sunny Brae staff Not many people can say this... but Daniel can, “I came to Humboldt for the weather!” He has been with Murphy’s for just a few months and is happy with the people he gets to work with and the friendly customers. Daniel plays bass guitar and synthesizer with friends. He records on cassettes and multi-track to over “dub” and make his own unique music. Inspiration may come from the concerts he frequents in San Francisco. Author Cormac McCarthy’s writing has also interested Daniel. McCarthy

has authored many books, several of which have been made into movies; The Road, No Country for Old Men and All the Pretty Horses. Born and raised in hot Sacramento, Daniel worked in the summer between semesters so he could move here and attend Humboldt State University as a history major. He is in his junior year. He plans to teach English in the Czech Republic and then come back to Humboldt for his teaching credential via TESOL - Teachers of English to Speakers of Other

Languages. Their Mission Statement: To advance professional expertise in English language teaching and learning for speakers of other languages worldwide. You never know the dreams of the students who are helping you with your groceries at Murphy’s. Each member of the staff has a story just as unique as their customers. And that is one of the many reasons Murphy’s is such a special place to shop.

Dog Pickle

Editor: So ... a man’s brother dies, leaving three dogs adrift (“Dog Fail,” Aug. 29). The man takes the dogs in and cares for them for six months, then has to move to the East Coast. Driving 3,000 miles across the United States in the heat of summer with three dogs in a packed truck is not an option. He turns to the local shelters. They are not full, yet they turn him down because the dogs are not “strays.” These are not his dogs. He can’t take them with him. The shelters only accept “strays.” He makes strays of them. For this he is excoriated in the press and charged as a criminal by our District Attorney. Really!? What you have rather he had done? Cut their throats? Really. Steve Parr, Eureka

Fish On!

It’s madness at the mouth of the Klamath, where record runs are drawing record crowds By Heidi Walters



he young fisherman stood, stunned, on the wet, soft sand cliff above the churning blue-andgreen river channel. His fishing pole strained before him in a got-a-big-lunker bow. His friend hopped on the sand beside him, chattering excitedly: “I almost fell in! I almost fell in!” An older fisherman walking by, gear in hand, smiled. “You got a big one!” he said cheerily. Then he looked over the edge — and shook his head. The young guy’s lunker wasn’t a fat Klamath River salmon, but a whopping pile of freshly collapsed sand bank that had whooshed from underfoot, burying his line and nearly his friend. But up and down the Klamath River’s south spit on this hot, sunny Wednesday last week, other people were running along the edge of the treacherous sand cliff yelling “Fish on! Fish on! Fish on!” and then willingly plunging down it to retrieve the ocean-dashing, tired-out fish caught on their lines. The huge fish whipped about, the river pulled, and the sparkling ocean tumbled nearby. Across the channel on the parallel north spit, where there was no cliff, more people held tight to lines and wallowed in racing river and crashing surf to wrestle their catch. It’s a wonder no one was swept to sea. “It’s crazy down there,” agreed Sara Borok, the state Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist in charge of the crew doing creel counts on the lower Klamath. “It’s called ‘combat fishing.’” Hundreds of sport fishers — men, women and children — have trekked daily over the past couple of weeks to stand side by side and cast their lines into the stampede of incoming fall-run Chinook. The fish are big — even some 35-pounders. The run is large — 272,000 are predicted to swim up the Klamath (the average run is 121,000). But those aren’t the only reasons the Klamath

mouth is a fevered fishing paradise this year. “Because of the warm water and low flows, fish weren’t entering in a trickle like they usually do in the first week of August,” Borok explained on the phone last week. Chinook won’t migrate into the river if it’s above 73 degrees. The temperature at the mouth had gotten up to 77 degrees, so the salmon waited out in the ocean. Then came some cooler nights, and the river mouth temperature dropped to 70. It likely helped that more water was released into the Trinity River, a tributary to the Klamath. “Now they are just pouring in,” Borok said. “But another reason it’s absolutely nuts out there is this is the first time in 10 years the mouth has run south.” Instead of emptying straight into the ocean close to the north shore, near Requa, the river now hooks sharply south and cuts a channel through the north and south spits parallel to the ocean. The salmon have to swim this long, narrow passage to migrate upriver, making them easy pickings. Since the sportfishing season opened Aug. 15, more than 3,000 salmon have been harvested at the mouth, most within just one week, between Aug. 20 and Aug. 26. The limit is three fish per person per day. “I looked at all the data back to 1986, for that same week, and we have not had 3,000 fish caught at the mouth this early in the season,” Borok said. “The most caught was about 600.” People come with plastic buckets strapped to two-wheeled carts, with burlap bags, with tarps, with bits of rope and sometimes with nothing at all to drag their heavy catch through the sand from the mouth back up to the road and then past an exhausting line of parked trucks to their own rigs. All those fish. All those people. All the barking, scarfing sea lions at the ocean entrance, and all the wheeling gulls. The tumult is stirring up mad joy — and anger. Last Wednesday, as Xu Chang from Cres-

cent City skittered down the steep sand bank to grapple a flailing salmon hooked in the mouth, his uncle Siavu Chang, holding the fishing pole, laughed and shouted, “First time I fished!” A few yards north of him, Michael Simmons, from Gold Beach, Ore., also laughed. He shouted at Chang, “Good job, got a fish!” There were many first-timers like Chang. Many fishermen like Simmons who’d never fished the Klamath mouth before. And a few old-timers who’d seen this river mouth configuration in years’ past. A group of dudes from Santa Rosa sat in the sand, smoking and listening to their boombox. One of their friends, Aaron Lujan, started running downstream shouting “Fish on!” Most people leaped back to let him pass, raising their poles to keep their lines from tangling. When the fish tired, Lujan shooshed down the bank to grab it. Emina Lekovic, from San Diego, was fishing nearby. She grabbed Lujan’s pole and helped drag his fish up, then gave him a hand back up the disintegrating cliff. “Whooo!” Lujan cried. Lekovic had been out here all week. Mostly, people were being friendly. But a few got too excited. Rude. One day, she said, she cast her line and it got tangled in the channel with the line of a man fishing on the other spit. He insisted she let go of her line so he could cut it. She did. The next time this happened to her, she refused. “I said, ‘No, I’m not letting go,’” she said. “So I pulled this way, they pulled that way. It’s happened to other people than me. You’re supposed to untangle it, like a normal person.” Borok said there’d been fistfights, people yelling at each other. But on Wednesday, everyone seemed filled with sunshine, intoxicated by such easy fishing. How could you be unhappy fishing, wondered Dan Alexander from McKinleyville. He’s got two boys in college, and enough

salmon now to fill his freezer. “This is a pure day,” he said. “I’m out here fishing with my son — it can’t be better.” There was a gloomy lining to the sunshine. The spit was littered with abandoned, dead fish. Many of the keepers seemed hastily stashed, lying on the sand beside fishing gear, under poor shade or no shade, without ice. Some fishermen were burying their catch to keep it cool. Few had coolers on the beach. Away from the commotion, Catherine Oliver, a Yurok, was kneeling in the estuary washing sand off half a dozen salmon her cousin had hauled on a tarp from the mouth of the river. She was angry. These were fish, she said, that sportfishers had hooked — and sometimes snagged — and released. (Many salmon are getting snagged in the crowded channel — hooked on their backs, sides, tails — and it’s illegal to keep a fish that didn’t willingly swallow the hook.) “The fish are tired from fighting the reel,” she said. “They’re hurt. And they swim right into the sea lions’ mouths. It’s wasteful. I’m rescuing them so my family can eat.” People shouldn’t be allowed to catch and release, she said. She also said the sport

season shouldn’t coincide with the Yurok commercial season. Even some sportfishers complained about the excess and said the sport season at the river’s mouth should have closed after the 3,000th fish was caught. Each year, based on the projected run, officials put an overall quota on how many fish can be sport harvested from the river and divvy it among four sections. Fifty percent of the quota can be caught between the Highway 101 bridge and the mouth — 20,003 salmon this season. A subquota for the mouth itself is lifted at times like this, when the run is huge, said Borok, so the entire 20,003 could legally be caught at the mouth. That’s not likely, Borok said, but the prospect upsets tribal fishermen; the Yurok’s fall commercial quota for the lower river is 76,362, but their area begins upstream of the mobbed mouth. Usually it’s the other way around, she said, sportfishers bitching about Yurok fishers and their nets. “And bitching is recreation down on the lower Klamath,” she said. l • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013


the week in WEed


8 North Coast Journal • Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013 •



his is the beginning of the end of marijuana prohibition.” That’s what a Denver dispensary owner told the New York Times last week in response to what’s being called (by some) a historic memo from Attorney General Eric Holder. In his long-awaited response to the legalization of weed-for-fun in Colorado and Washington, Holder said the U.S. Department of Justice won’t sue to stop the laws, and he told federal prosecutors not to mess with marijuana users or businesses as long as they comply with state laws and don’t run afoul of eight federal enforcement priorities (keep it away from kids and cartels, no toking and driving, no growing on public land, etc.). Many hailed the memo as the dawn of a new day, one in which regulation will replace prohibition. But here in California, industry insiders were less sanguine. After all, they remember the Obama administration saying something very similar back in March 2009. That’s when Holder announced that the Bush-era raids on medical marijuana dispensaries would end. They didn’t, obviously. The Justice Department has since shut down (or intimidated into closure) hundreds of state-legal dispensaries in California. Arcata’s Humboldt Medical Supply, for example, closed last year after being notified by U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag that it was within 1,000 feet of a playground. That “playground” was the Arcata Ball Park, site of much drunken revelry and zero playground equipment. Haag, who oversees California’s Northern District, is also responsible for dismantling Mendocino County’s zip-tie registration program, and she’s currently trying to seize the assets and property of several Bay Area dispensaries, including Oakland’s Harborside Health Center. Obama’s periodic head-fakes toward Drug War pragmatism haven’t done a thing to slow Haag’s ham-fisted crusade against the devil weed. And it doesn’t look like Holder’s “historic” memo will have much

effect either. On Friday, a spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney’s Office Northern District told the East Bay Express, “[F]or the most part it appears that the cases that have been brought in this district are already in compliance [with the new guidelines]. Therefore, we do not expect a significant change.” Other tidbits from the week in weed: • Marijuana is the most popular illegal drug on the planet. That completely unsurprising finding came from the first-ever global survey of illicit drug use, published last week by the University of Washington. Meanwhile, legal painkillers were found to be the most lethal addiction. • The Rim Fire that’s currently eating up Yosemite may have been sparked by an illegal marijuana grow. That’s what a local fire official told a community meeting on Aug. 23. A YouTube video of his talk only recently came to the attention of media outlets. • In Monday’s Times-Standard, Thadeus Greenson reported on five local men facing federal prison sentences of up to 20 years and a fine of up to $1 million for allegedly supplying a multistate drug ring with local homegrown. Court documents suggest that three of the men may be informing on their partners in Montana. • A marijuana grower in upstate New York accidentally killed himself with his own booby trap on Saturday. Police said the 50-year-old man was nearly decapitated when he drunk-drove his four-wheeler through a nearly invisible line of piano wire, which he’d strung up to protect his crop. • Pot blog Smell the Truth published a list of the best marijuana strains for treating depression, as reported by patients. Among the choices: “Juicy Fruit,” “Sweet Island Skunk” and “Trainwreck,” which is described as “a mythic sativa from Arcata, Calif. ... Use it to clean your house.”


Dog Abandoned on Samoa Beach Dies

One of three dogs found abandoned on Samoa beach last month died Friday. A veterinarian euthanized “Becky,” a black Labrador retriever, after discovering she was bleeding internally from invasive nasal cancer, the Sheriff’s Office reported. Veterinary records gathered by Animal Control indicate Becky had been experiencing symptoms since at least May 2012. “Angel” and “Ginger” — the other two dogs found near Fairhaven on Aug. 21, are healthy and awaiting adoption. Visit for details on how to donate to the Friends for Life Emergency Medical Fund, which supplemented vet costs for Becky and other shelter dogs. ● EDUCATION / BY CARRIE PEYTON DAHLBERG / MONDAY, SEPT. 2 AT 12:05 P.M.

Illegal, Secret e-Meetings by School Trustees?

School district trustees may have broken the state’s public meeting law by exchanging emails about how to handle a plagiarized graduation speech by one of their own, the Arcata Eye and McKinleyville Press reported last week. The emails reveal a group of school board members eager to make the problem go away as quickly as possible, and some who suggested that fellow board member Dan Johnson’s speech at Arcata High wasn’t really all that bad, even though it lifted passages from a well-known speech that some students sitting in his audience had studied. The article by the Eye’s Kevin Hoover, based on public records requests for the emails, is full of fascinating nuggets and raises more questions about how the Northern Humboldt Union High School District conducts its business. References are made to Johnson consulting a lawyer and to communications that were not released. Interestingly, the trustees’ long silence during public complaints about Johnson’s speech appears to have been endorsed or encouraged by Humboldt County Superintendent of Schools Garry Eagles. When board member Colleen Toste wrote him on June 28 asking how to handle media coverage, he replied that “absolutely no statement from anyone is appropriate under the circumstances” except from Johnson, if he chooses. Some of the exchanges included enough board members or were passed along to

enough board members to constitute “a virtual quorum,” Hoover wrote, which could run afoul of the Brown Act’s ban on most secret meetings by school boards and other public bodies. Through the entire affair, school board members emailed a lot about damage control but nothing about what Hoover called “the glaring double standard in the way Johnson has been coddled and excused for his plagiarism, undermining teachers’ ability to credibly teach students that cheating is unacceptable and punishable.” ● GOVERNMENT / BY GRANT SCOTTGOFORTH / FRIDAY, AUG. 30 AT 5:08 P.M.

Liberate Your Growler

Freedom to enjoy your favorite beer — that’s Wes Chesbro’s (D — North Coast) vision of California. He’s calling for Gov. Jerry Brown to end the persecution against owners of growlers — those 64-ounce beer bottles — who just want a refill. Growlers are an increasingly popular way to get fresh-brewed craft beer home. Even in the North Coast’s burgeoning brewery market, some beermakers decline to bottle their specialty beers (or any of it), meaning the only way to enjoy it is in a glass, on the town. Resealable growlers give tipplers the ability to bring those suds home, or to the neighbor’s barbecue. Growlers have been around, but confusing alcohol laws prohibited a brewery from filling a growler unless it was permanently branded with that brewery’s label. The legislation Chesbro is championing (beer, apparently, is a unifying force, as the bill was co-authored by Republican State Senator Steve Knight) would make it OK for brewers to fill any growler, as long as the now-laden vessel was properly labeled and showed no signs of its former contents. ● COMMUNITY / BY GRANT SCOTTGOFORTH / FRIDAY, AUG. 30 AT 11:16 A.M.

EPIC Pooh-poohs Poisons

Following on the heels of the somewhat high-profile report this week that poisonlaced hot dogs killed a fisher at a Humboldt County grow in July, the Environmental Protection Information Center (EPIC) says it’s campaigning to get rat poison off of local shelves. EPIC says it’s trying to convince retailers to voluntarily ban the sale of “second generation anticoagulant rodenticides” like d-CON. County supes passed a resolution in May urging the same, to the consternation of one poison-industrial-complex rep. It’s not just irresponsible growers using these toxins that put people at risk, EPIC says, though it cites a study in its press release that says 80 percent of fishers found dead by researchers between 2006 and 2011 had been exposed to rodenticides. (The July fisher — the first confirmed intentional

poisoning of a fisher — was determined to have died from insecticides, though rodenticides were also found in its system.) Residences and businesses should also seek alternatives, EPIC says. “We don’t have to poison our families and wildlife to live and work in rural Northwest California.” Read the full release at ● MARIJUANA / BY GRANT SCOTTGOFORTH / WEDNESDAY, AUG. 28 AT 11:47 A.M.

Stream-sucking Grows Busted

Two busts east of Garberville yesterday turned up just the kind of ecological havoc that’s been infuriating environmentalists and getting the attention of our Congressman. Along with the usual guns, greenhouses and greenbacks ($198,000 at one property) Fish and Wildlife say they found pumps draining Mattole Canyon Creek, sucking up salmon and steelhead smolt, and leaking oil on the riverbed. When officers arrived at one bust, on the 1800 block of Dutyville Road, “they located two people at the residence, Bruce Wayne Turner, 63 years old and his 56-year-old girlfriend. Officers located a pump in Mattole Canyon Creek which was being used to pump water to the marijuana plants the couple was growing,” the Sheriff’s Office reported. “Officers located 877 growing marijuana plants located in two greenhouses on the property. The plants ranged in size from approximately 8 inches to 6 feet. They also located approximately $198,000 in cash, scales and evidence the marijuana was being sold for profit. Turner was arrested for cultivation and possession for sale of marijuana, allowing a place for drugs to be stored (all felonies) and Fish and Wildlife code violations for altering a streambed without a permit and polluting a streambed (both misdemeanors). He was transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where he was booked and his bail was set at $50,000. Turner’s girlfriend was not arrested due to health issues. Charges are being sought against her through the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office.” Read the full press release at ● • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, SEPT. 5, 2013


Building a Better Corridor After tragic accidents and years of delays, the road by the bay needs an upgrade. But what kind? By Ryan Burns

Detail of Eureka to Arcata Route 101 Corridor Improvement Project. Courtesy of CalTrans

10 North Coast Journal • Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013 •


ewcomers to Humboldt County, especially those arriving from more urban areas, are often amused when locals complain that driving from Arcata to Eureka, or vice-versa, is just “too far.” And they have a point. That four-lane stretch of U.S. Route 101 is barely six miles long. Seems longer, right? Maybe that’s due, at least in part, to the road’s history of tragedies and the signposts that remind us of them. The big signs with flashing lights, the reduced speed limit, the daytime headlight requirement and those radar readouts clocking your speed — it’s ominous. One visitor said it felt like she was entering Area 51. But those flashing, blinking gizmos speak of dangers embedded in the design of the roadway. Scattered along the corridor at irregular intervals are six Tintersections where two-way streets meet the expressway. Every hour of every day, drivers face a challenging and potentially deadly game of Frogger. They’re forced to judge the speed of oncoming cars and wait for a gap big enough to shoot across two lanes of traffic. Periodically someone misjudges, often with gruesome results. For cyclists, it’s even scarier. This is the “safety corridor,” an 11-year-old, 50 mph twilight zone that always was intended to be a temporary fix. Safety zones just don’t work long term, says the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), because people start ignoring them. Before May 2002, when the safety corridor was created, the prevailing speed on this stretch was nearly 70 miles per hour, despite a speed limit of 60. Also, there were seven intersections, not six. In the five years before the safety measures were installed, collisions at four of the seven intersections happened more frequently than the state average at

similar intersections, according to Caltrans reports. Two of the junctures — at MidCity Motor World and Indianola Boulevard — had more than double the average rate of serious collisions (those resulting in serious injury or death), Caltrans found. “We even had people renting billboards identifying it as ‘Blood Alley,’” said Ralph Martinelli, chief traffic safety officer for Caltrans District 1, which includes Humboldt, Del Norte, Mendocino and Lake counties. Public outrage over the unsafe conditions reached a fever pitch after a brutal T-bone collision on Jan. 23, 2002. A car had turned left from southbound 101 toward Indianola Boulevard and was crossing northbound 101 when it was plowed into. Four people, including a mom, her son and her father, were killed. The safety corridor was born. When Caltrans looked back in 2007, comparing the five years before and after the safety corridor’s installation, it found that conditions had improved a bit. Though collision rates remained high (and in fact went up) at Mid-City and Indianola, the rate of serious accidents went down at all six intersections. And while there have been fatalities on that stretch in the last decade (including a CR student who fell asleep at the wheel, a cyclist who suffered a heart attack and a driver who inexplicably entered the freeway going the wrong direction), none of the deaths were related to the design of the dangerous intersections. Regardless, the measures weren’t meant to stay. According to a Caltrans study of 29 safety corridors around the state, their effectiveness starts to wear off after a while. People start going faster, enhanced enforcement money runs out and accident rates creep back up. Indeed, both total collision rates and serious collision rates remain well above average

on 101 between Arcata and Eureka. “The severity has gone down but the number is climbing back up,” said Martinelli, “and we’re concerned that at some point it’s going to break down completely.” Caltrans has been chipping away at a more permanent solution for more than a dozen years. And as the region’s transportation planning agency, the Humboldt County Association of Governments (HCAOG) also plays a major role: It holds decision-making authority for 75 percent of the funds spent locally on state highway projects. Those two agencies, in conjunction with the Federal Highway Administration, have put forth a $46 million design they say will vastly improve safety on the corridor. However, another state agency, the California Coastal Commission, stands in the way. Charged with protecting the environment along the state’s coastline, the commission must sign off on development projects in the coastal zone. Next Thursday, Sept. 12, the Coastal Commission will gather at Eureka’s Wharfinger building to decide, among other things, whether Caltrans’ proposed design is consistent with federal Coastal Zone guidelines. And commission staffers — in a 45-page report to commissioners — argue that it’s not. In the grand scheme of this project, the consistency determination is just one of many hurdles on the way to a safer 101 corridor. Quite a few other hurdles have been cleared, and some big ones still remain. But this one, which takes a big-picture look at the concept, objectives and design, could either clear a straight path to the finish line or stop the proposed design in its tracks, forcing state and local governments to backtrack and head in a different direction. The safety corridor’s fate has become

entangled not just with safety and convenience for drivers but also with wetland protections, the railroad, our rising seas and — at long last — plans for a walking and cycling trail between Arcata and Eureka, which are gaining momentum after years of frustrations.

What might the 101 cor-

ridor look like in 2020, the target completion date? Imagine closed medians at four of the six intersections between Arcata and Eureka: those at Mid-City, California Redwood Co., the Bracut lumberyard and the Bayside cutoff. At Airport Road, just north of Eureka, imagine a “half signal” on the east side of Route 101. This light would periodically stop traffic leaving Eureka to allow southbound left turns from Airport Road. (Good news for people renting U-Hauls or buying horse feed on Jacobs Avenue.) All those changes are part of Caltrans’ proposed design, and Coastal Commission staffers have no major argument with them. (Quibbles, yes.) What they do have a significant beef with is Caltrans’ plans for the Indianola intersection. There, Caltrans wants to construct an interchange, raising the freeway by 25 feet and building on- and off-ramps to allow cross traffic to pass underneath. This design, says Caltrans, would provide smooth transitions for cars, no matter which direction they’re headed. But Coastal Commission staff doesn’t like it. This split-level interchange, the staff report says, is overkill. Traffic signals at Indianola would cause less environmental damage. Furthermore, the report argues, the over/underpass would help traffic flow more easily and so would allow more drivers to use the expressway — a capacity increase which is not allowed

on this project. And the whole thing would harm the view and “visual character” of the area. Other commission objections: It says the interchange could raise speeds on 101, spark commercial development along Indianola and limit future planning options for sea-level rise. Plus, the plan doesn’t include any provisions for a separated bicycle and pedestrian path. Caltrans has responded to these objections, not by changing any of its plans but by disputing commission staff’s conclusions on each and every point. Let’s start with the trail. Two years ago, Arcata was one of just two cities (with Fortuna) that voted against funding the project, and the reason was its lack of plans for a bike and pedestrian trail. But Susan Ornelas, an Arcata councilmember and the city’s representative on the HCAOG board, feels it’s time to reconsider. “I have come to appreciate Caltrans’ 101 corridor update plan,” she said in a recent interview. “I have personally decided it is the most graceful and well-designed [alternative] for the automobile. ... But it doesn’t make sense without the trail.” After working behind the scenes with representatives of the Coastal Commission, the North Coast Railroad Authority, Caltrans and HCAOG, Ornelas came away convinced that a rail-with-trail project — meaning a trail built alongside the NCRA’s eroding rail bed — could be tied to the 101 corridor project. (Disclosure: Journal Publisher Judy Hodgson co-founded the Bay [T]rail Advocates, a group that has been lobbying like mad for this trail.) Ornelas and HCAOG Executive Director Marcella Clem have been arguing that this trail project could be listed as a condition of approval for the 101 corridor project. In other words, if the trail didn’t continued on next page

continued from previous page get funded then the corridor project couldn’t go forward. “We do not want one built without the other,” Clem said at an Aug. 15 HCAOG meeting. Trail advocates have reason for optimism lately. Thanks in large part to efforts from the Bay [T]rail Advocates, the NCRA last year agreed to support trail development along its corridor between Arcata and Eureka. And Arcata is moving forward with plans to build the first section of that trail, from the city out to Bracut. Its application for a $2.7 million grant from the federal Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program is pending and appears to be a strong contender. Meanwhile, Eureka has hired the GHD engineering company to analyze a route for the other half — from Bracut to Eureka — and expects to start applying for funds before the year’s out. But Coastal Commission staff remains skeptical. Although the commission urges applicants to build new sections of the Coastal Trail whenever possible, it considers the current bay trail plans “highly speculative at this point.” It argues that Caltrans’ corridor remodel would “adversely affect bicycle use” by closing off medians (thus requiring some cyclists to ride out of their way) and by likely increasing the speed limit. It’s calling on Caltrans to include in its plans an interim bicycle lane, separated from traffic by a guardrail or a concrete barrier. Caltrans and HCAOG say that’s a terrible idea. For one thing, they dispute the claim that their plans would make things worse for cyclists, and furthermore, they argue, plans for the bay trail are far from speculative. In a rebuttal to the commission’s staff report, Caltrans said that building an interim bicycle lane would add at least $12 million to the project, would consume 7.6 acres of wetlands, and “would severely undermine the Bay Trail’s future, as HCAOG has stated that it could not support both.” At its Aug. 21 meeting, following advocacy from Ornelas and Clem, the Arcata City Council seemed to change its position on Caltrans’ project. In a 4-1 vote, with Councilmember/Mayor Shane Brinton dissenting, the council directed its staff to draft a letter of support for the project, which it plans to finalize at this week’s meeting and submit to the Coastal Commission. The hope is that a broad show of community support for the bay trail will convince commissioners that it’s not speculative. But commission staff members aren’t the only ones dubious of Caltrans’ commitment to a trail. Local environmental

“A clear priority,” Ehresman said, “is to see [the corridor project] clearly and unequivocally linked with the bay trail.” Clem, HCAOG’s director, had expected to see a trail linked in writing to the safety corridor fix last week. Instead, when Caltrans, HCAOG and the Federal Highway Administration submitted their final response to the coastal commission on Aug. 28, they made no mention of such a condition. Defiantly (albeit accurately), the response said, “Absent from the legislative regime is any obligation requiring the Applicants to fund or build the trail.” Reached by phone on Monday, Clem expressed frustration that Caltrans wouldn’t commit to a trail as had been discussed, especially since Coastal Commission staff seemed open to the bay trail. In its final report to the commission, staff suggested that the bay trail would satisfy the Coastal Act’s public access and recreation policies, but only if Caltrans would make a firm commitment to make sure it’s funded before the full 101 corridor project.

groups including Humboldt Baykeeper and the Northcoast Environmental Center say that without a documented promise to fund a trail, Caltrans’ proposal should be denied. Jessica Hall, Baykeeper’s executive director, said that HCAOG and Caltrans “are describing [the bay trail] as if it’s now part of the project, but I don’t see how you can say that it is until you’ve put something on paper.” She’s aware that denial of Caltrans’ proposal could complicate efforts on the bay trail. “That’s the thing I find really

unfortunate about the situation,” she said. “We don’t want to kill a trail proposal that might have legs.” But given Coastal Commission staff’s other objections and the lack of a firm trail commitment from Caltrans, Hall said Baykeeper can’t support the project. NEC Executive Director Dan Ehresman agrees and says that Caltrans has a history of ignoring its own agency directive, “Complete Streets,” which calls for “multimodal” projects that make room for bicyclists and pedestrians.

the other main points of contention all swirl around the Indianola intersection. Caltrans, HCAOG and the Bay [T]rail Advocates say a split-level interchange would work best, while Coastal Commission staff and local environmental leaders say signals would be preferable. Among its objections to an interchange, the commission staff report says the overpass would significantly alter the natural landscape by requiring 240,000 cubic yards of fill to build steep, 25-foot slopes which would block the view of the bay from Indianola. It also objects to Caltrans’ wetland mitigation plans and says the interchange could limit options when it comes to planning for sea-level rise. (Caltrans is set to embark on a sealevel rise study soon; some critics say the corridor plan should wait until the study’s complete.) Humboldt Baykeeper and the Northcoast Environmental Center argue that Caltrans failed to fully consider other viable alternatives. Baykeeper even went so far as to commission its own traffic study from Nelson\Nygaard Consulting Associates. That firm’s report, issued last month, urged Caltrans to go back and consider alternatives, particularly roundabouts at Indianola, Airport Road and the Bayside cutoff. Caltrans and its co-applicants practically sneered in response. Their Aug. 29 missive to the Coastal Commission says Caltrans engineers found that “the signalized alternative would fail spec-

tacularly.” These engineers predicted that the average queue at Indianola during rush-hour on northbound 101 would be 104 cars, or about half a mile long. The maximum queue would be 120 cars or more, especially since closed medians elsewhere would divert more drivers to that intersection. This would lead many to avoid the corridor altogether by taking Old Arcata road or State Route 255 through Manila — prospects that frighten communities along both routes. As for altering the natural landscape and affecting the bay view, the overpass advocates scoffed: “[T]he landscape of the Indianola intersection is anything but natural.” If not for “a century of diking and dredging,” they pointed out, the whole area would still be underwater. And besides, they said, “The non-native trees, billboards, the abandoned rail line [and] the permanently shuttered drive-in theater ... are also unlikely to be regarded as highly scenic.” They mocked the Nelson\Nygaard study commissioned by Baykeeper, calling it “vague and unsubstantiated,” as well as “quite rudimentary and deeply flawed.” And they insisted that signalized intersections simply don’t work well on roads where drivers go faster than 45 miles per hour. Ornelas and Clem, with HCAOG, have also been working to find ammunition against the traffic signals proposal. They’ve been looking at the history of another

stretch of U.S. Route 101 — the part just north of the corridor. From the mid-1950s through the early 1970s, 101 traveled right through Arcata, with traffic signals at Seventh and 17th streets. Ornelas and Clem have been scouring microfiche looking for traffic accidents related to those signals. As Clem reported to the Arcata City Council last month, they found stories about a 27-car pileup with two fatalities that occurred in the thick fog of Jan. 16, 1959. Councilmember Alex Stillman said she remembers when that stretch of 101 had signals. They called it by a familiar name: Blood Alley. HCAOG and Caltrans argue that putting signals at Indianola would only replace T-bone accidents with rear-enders. “Bear in mind,” countered Hall of Humboldt Baykeeper, rear-end accidents “tend to not be fatal.” Caltrans officials have criticized the Coastal Commission for suggesting design alternatives when it’s not their job to design roads, but Mark Delaplaine, the commission’s federal consistency manager, said it’s appropriate. “We’re there to ask questions, and we have many, many times disagreed with Caltrans over the best way to build a highway,” he said. “Sometimes they’ve prevailed and sometimes we prevailed.”

Looming over

all this planning, not to mention just about every coastal community across the world,

is the specter of rising seas. And there’s evidence to suggest that the Humboldt Bay region could face some of the most serious consequences. Environmental scientist Aldaron Laird recently spent months in a kayak inventorying and mapping all 105 miles of Humboldt Bay’s shoreline (“Aldaron’s Walkabout,” Jan. 5, 2012) as a preliminary step toward planning for sea-level rise. According to Laird, Humboldt Bay and the surrounding land is subsiding at a rate of roughly 11 inches per century. Combine that with rising seas (a recent study by the National Research Council predicted at least six inches of rise by 2030, three feet by 2100) and it gives Humboldt Bay the highest rate of relative sea-level rise anywhere in California, if not along the entire West Coast, Laird said. Making matters worse is the condition of the dikes around the bay. As the project applicants alluded to in their quip about Indianola being unnatural, more than 30 percent of Humboldt Bay’s historic tidelands were diked off between 1890 and 1910. With no agency in charge of upkeep, those dikes have not been maintained. “They’re essentially vertical dirt faces that are just falling off into the sloughs or the bay,” Laird said. Even if the dikes hold up, he added, it would only take two feet of increase in tide elevations to cause the entire dike system to fail. That level of rise could conceivably happen quite soon if a king tide coincides with storm surges, say, from an El Niño weather pattern. “There are thousands of acres of land at risk now,” Laird said. Caltrans is currently partnering with HCAOG to explore ways to protect “critically vulnerable assets” as the climate changes. But since planning to reconfigure the safety corridor began long ago, (and in fact the road was supposed to be done by now), its plans aren’t subject to this climate change strategy. The Coastal Commission staff says that signals at Indianola “would be less likely to conflict with (and easier to modify to harmonize with)” whatever Caltrans plans for sea-level rise. Humboldt Baykeeper and the NEC are also arguing for Caltrans to consider sea-level rise. “This is part of a much, much bigger and difficult question about the future of this bay,” said Hall. “It is sticky and going to be uncomfortable, but we have continued on next page

continued from previous page to start having that conversation. That’s why [it’s worth asking], ‘Is this the time to do a $50M project?’ Maybe what we should be doing is a more low-cost solution that maintains the goals of safety on the 101 corridor.” Laird predicts that 101 will have to be converted into a causeway, raised above the water level. Asked to address the issue, a spokesman for Caltrans acknowledged via email that the entire length of the safety corridor will need to be raised by up to three feet over the next 100 years. And while he didn’t explain how, he added, “The proposed Indianola interchange has been designed to accommodate raising 101 in the future.”

Finally, let’s look at two

more contentious issues related to this project: the potential for cars to drive faster on 101 and the potential for businesses to become more interested in locating along Indianola Boulevard and Old Arcata Road. Speed is a major concern for cycling enthusiasts, who argue that any safety gains made by closing the medians could well be lost by rising speeds on the 101

corridor. In a press release issued after Caltrans announced its design proposal, NEC director Dan Ehresman said, “In Caltrans’ attempt to solve a safety problem for automobiles, they could in fact be making it more dangerous for those who travel by bike.” Caltrans has tried to allay those fears. The applicants’ defiant response to the Coastal Commission said, “Caltrans is committed to keeping the speed limit at 50 mph within the corridor, insofar as the vehicle code allows.” That sounds reassuring until you learn what the vehicle code actually says. Martinelli, Caltrans’ chief traffic safety officer, explained how it works: “By law, Caltrans — or anyone who sets the speed limit —requires an engineering and traffic survey. The process is very clearly stated in the California vehicle code. It’s illegal to create a speed trap.” So when the project is complete, Caltrans will have to hire traffic engineers to go out and clock the speeds of cars on the corridor. It then has to base the speed limit on the prevailing speed — that is, the speed that less than 15 percent of drivers exceed.

Jay Sooter’s

This regulatory pressure on speed limits makes cycling advocates even more committed to a bay trail because someday soon, cars may be going even faster through the corridor. As for potential growth inducement, both Caltrans and the Coastal Commission argue that the other guy’s plan would somehow encourage businesses to sprout up around Indianola. The reasoning, on both sides, is that as cars slow down approaching Indianola, the drivers will be more likely to look out at their surroundings. A strategically placed gas station or Wendy’s might take advantage of that attention. To make its case, Coastal Commission staff went digging through old Caltrans reports. It found one from 2002 in which Caltrans listed the corridor project among a number of “capacity-increasing” projects. And commission staff went all the way back to the early 1990s to find a Caltrans response to a traffic study for a proposed Wal-Mart on Indianola. In that response, commission staff says, Caltrans predicted a future need for an interchange much like the one it’s proposing now and admitted such a structure “could

be growth-inducing.” Caltrans now says that there are constraints limiting growth in that area, including the fact that the land is zoned for agricultural use, there’s no sewage system and “the high water table makes it likely to stay that way.” Ironically, Caltrans also points to WalMart’s efforts as evidence. “Indeed, WalMart, Sam’s Club, and Costco have all expressed interest in developing near the Indianola cutoff intersection over past years, but none has done so due to the barrier imposed by coastal development permits in addition to those factors noted above.” The arguments on both sides are highly theoretical, relying on attempts to mindread future travelers. But it will be up to the Coastal Commission to decide who makes the more compelling case, not just on this issue but on the entire project. In the community, there are passionate and reasonable people on both sides. Hank Seemann, the county’s deputy director of environmental sciences, has been working hard to coordinate local trail efforts, and he says it’s time to move forward. “I think the safety issues really warrant addressing

this promptly.” He understands that some people have concerns based on Caltrans’ history but says that HCAOG, as the regional planning agency, is helping hold the agency to its word. “I’m just hopeful that at the Coastal Commission meeting there’s not a decision that really sends it backward,” Seemann said. “There needs to be a way to move it forward.” Ornelas was even more effusive. She said that when she and Clem recently traveled to San Francisco to meet with commission staff she told them, “We need this spiritually. We need to know that we can do this, amongst ourselves. That we can cooperate. That we can manifest this ... .” She sighed. “I just hope we get there.” But others in the community share commission staff’s concerns. They say the project is too expensive, that it could make safety worse, and that it ignores years and years of community input on wetland mitigation and a cycling/pedestrian trail. “In a perfect world there would be some way to support the development of other alternatives that deal with the trail in a way that actually moves us for-

ward,” said Hall with Baykeeper. But since the only thing before the Commission is Caltrans’ plan, she said, her group has no choice but to urge denial. If the commission does vote to withhold its federal consistency determination, Caltrans would almost certainly have to go back and revise its plans to incorporate the commission’s suggestions. Technically Caltrans could appeal the decision to the Secretary of Commerce, but it has never done so before, and commission staff says the move would be pointless. One last thing: The Coastal Commission wants to hear from the public on this issue. Again, the meeting is next Thursday at the Wharfinger building. The all-day session begins at 8:30 a.m., and the safety corridor item is late on the agenda. Commission staffer Delaplaine says the agency loves feedback. “Ultimately, it’s not a popularity contest and the commission has to do what they think is appropriate under the Coastal Act. But the keystone of our agency’s success is public participation.” So all those times you’ve muttered your opinions about the safety corridor? Here’s your chance to tell someone who cares. ●

ne morning this past July, Louisa and I were sipping coffee in our camper van. We were parked on the remote Usal Beach in the Sinkyone Wilderness when they emerged from the early morning fog like ghostly apparitions — a stately parade of five bull elk on their way to the beach for a morning play-date. They skipped in and out of the surf, chasing and sparring with one another (for a video, search for “elk” at Come September and the annual mating season, that play turns serious, even deadly. Their most distinctive feature is, of course, those daunting male antler racks (the smaller females don’t have antlers). Every February or March, the antlers fall off, and within a week or so, new ones start to grow — at the incredible rate of nearly half an inch a day, or a foot a month. Antlers are made of bone-like keratin, which is enclosed in the “velvet,” a soft membrane that’s thick with blood vessels. In August, the blood supply dries up, and the velvet begins to shed, revealing fully grown bare bone. Those antlers are put to potentially lethal use during the September-October mating season, when bull elk vie for control of “harems” of female elk. Contests start with loud “bugling,” when the males bellow and whistle, both to attract mates and to warn off other bulls. A challenger will approach the harem’s alpha bull “bugling, urinating and tossing turf with his antlers” according to a National Park Service fact sheet. Usually, one bull will retreat before serious injury happens, but not always. Mating is followed by an eight-to-nine

month gestation period for the females. Typically, a pregnant cow isolates herself before giving birth to a single calf. Two weeks later, she and her newborn rejoin the female herd. Meanwhile, older males live alone or in bachelor herds, like the group we saw on the beach. Before Europeans invaded this part of the world, Roosevelt elk (Cervus elaphus roosevelti) roamed in large herds between San Francisco Bay and Vancouver Island, east to the Cascade Mountains in Washington and Oregon. Hunted to nearextinction, their numbers were down to a few hundred by the time serious conservation efforts began in the 1920s. Today, the come-back of these great elk, the second-largest of the deer family after moose, is a conservation success story. In California, for instance, the National Park Service estimates that only 15 Roosevelt elk were living in the State in 1925. Today, that number is well over 1,000. You don’t have to go to Usal, of course, to see Roosevelt elk — it’s hard not to spot a few if you drive north on Highway 101! Several prime viewing areas are located in the Redwood National and State Parks, north of Orick. Elk Prairie is right alongside the Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway (old Highway 101). Check out Davison Road and Gold Bluffs Beach while you’re up there. Be careful, though, especially at this time of year when the bulls are in a fractious and lusty mood. Give them lots of space and use a telephoto lens. l Barry Evans ( wonders what it would be like to be an alpha male.

Sushi for the Glutenchallenged By Dev Richards The gluten-free tempura yam roll at Kyoto (cue choir). Photo by Jennifer Fumiko Cahill


hat tiny protein that holds wheat together is a lot easier to avoid than it used to be. As long as you’re willing to spend a bit more, even mainstream grocery stores carry a handful of gluten-free items. Local coops and health food stores are a practical wonderland of gluten-free delicacies. But dining out is still a challenge. Breweries and Italian and Chinese restaurants offer some gluten-free selections (usually salads), but it’s generally a matter of chance. Sushi, however, offers a plethora of choices. Sushi rice, nori, raw fish and miso soup are all gluten-free; sadly, tempura (delicious, delicious tempura) and soy sauce are not gluten-free, and nearly every sushi sauce has a soy or teriyaki base. Among the three heavy-hitters of HumCo sushi — Tomo, Kyoto and Sushi Spot — which is your gluten-free go-to? Tomo (708 Ninth St., Arcata), though delightful and yummy, falls a little short in reliability as a gluten-free dining option. Prior to speaking with head chef Arianna Miller over the phone, it was hard to get a straight or confident answer out of some of the staff. Many of them were eager to get to the root of the question, but often their efforts fell short. Miller said Tomo doesn’t have special gluten-free options (other than the items that are inherently gluten-free), but the chefs are happy to make any of their sauces with a tamari base. This opens up a few more options, but still takes tempura off the table (literally). For now, stick to sunomono cucumber salad and raw items like the nigiri Hamachi (yellowtail) or the negi hama roll with yellowtail and green onions. Sushi Spot (670 Ninth St., Arcata) has a few more options. Waitress and floor manager Laurel Utman says the restaurant is in the middle of adding a large glutenfree section to its menu. For the time being, though, the restaurant focuses on keeping the staff informed about dietary

concerns, and a full allergen breakdown is posted in the back for the cooks and wait staff. This is a huge plus; it’s a relief when questions about the menu aren’t met with looks of confusion or phrases like, “I’m pretty sure … .” Depending on your degree of gluten-intolerance, “pretty sure” may not be a risk worth taking. The tekkahama roll with red tuna and yellowtail is gluten-free, and Sushi Spot will steam ingredients that are normally fried. Tamari is available, too, and if you miss tobiko, masago (a gluten-free smelt roe prepared without soy sauce) is on the menu. Kyoto (320 F St. in Eureka) has the most options by far. With gluten-free tempura, soba noodles and ponzu sauce, a world of options is open to the gluten-free diner. The tempura is cooked in a dedicated, glutenfree fryer, and all of Kyoto’s sauces can be made with a tamari base, as opposed to soy sauce. According to owner Jeni Masaki, the only item the restaurant hasn’t made glutenfree yet is the unagi sauce. For people who don’t enjoy scrumptious, buttery eel, the menu is virtually gluten-free! The tempura yam roll is so good — sweet with a little kick and crunch. Gluten-free tempura is not quite the same, but you still get your fix. A few restaurants are leading the charge in HumCo, and Kyoto is one of them. Let’s remember that just a few years ago most restaurants had no gluten-free options, and a very select few even knew what the deal was with gluten. The gluten-free movement has gained momentum thanks to the growing number of people who’ve given up gluten for dietary benefits, people with allergies or intolerances and those with celiac disease who are following doctor’s orders. Really, it’s a simple issue of supply and demand; even though some places may not have an abundance of gluten-free options now, they’re more likely to make changes if customers ask for them. So, be politely persistent, glutenfree diners, and we’ll keep the sushi rolling. l

lonzo King LINES Ballet brings two new pieces to the HSU Van Duzer Theater on Thursday, Sept. 12, at 8 p.m. Humboldt dance aficionados regularly travel to San Francisco to see the latest LINES programs. If you enjoy classical or contemporary ballet, or the fusion of different art forms, don’t miss this opportunity to see the newest works here in town. Both pieces are unique collaborations: one with musician Edgar Meyer and the other with Dublin-born writer Colum McCann. “Meyer” is titled for its composer, Edgar Meyer – a household name among classical and folk audiences for his stellar performances on double bass and piano, including ensemble projects with Joshua Bell, Alison Krauss, Mark O’Connor, Nickel Creek and Yo-Yo Ma. This new for 2013 contemporary/classical ballet includes seven movements of music commissioned specifically for LINES and recorded on double bass and piano (played by Meyer), plus cello and violin. Synchronized images of water, created by Academy Award winning designer Jim Doyle, reflect the playful contemplation of the piece. LINES Choreographer and Artistic Director Alonzo King sees art arising from the headwaters of nature. “In a large and odd sounding way,” he says, “art becomes the nature that we have in cities. Because art’s origin is in nature. All the things that are in dancing … what is pirouette? ... It’s an eddy, it’s a whirlpool.” The second piece, “Writing Ground”

was commissioned for Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo to inaugurate the Centenary of the Ballets Russes in 2010. The piece returns to the United States this fall for its first performances danced by LINES. In this collaboration, Colum McCann created a literary work that King then used as inspiration for a ballet. McCann is no stranger to the dance world; his published novels include Dancer, a fictional account of the life of Rudolf Nureyev – but this was his first experience working directly with a choreographer. McCann’s writing started out as a libretto, and then evolved into poetry about risk, language, identity and personal story. In McCann’s piece, a character begins “to write her life on pillowcases … Her bed became her history … The lives she wrote conjured up those who were absent.” McCann explores the ease with which we can get lost in resurrecting the past, and what compels us into the future. These motifs evoked for King our “endless trillions of thoughts” as we strive toward happiness, “and how ultimately those words become sacred texts which design our lives.” In response, the choreographer selected 14 sacred musical works through which his dancers could segue in search of clarity, from a Koran sura to a shofar’s call, and from Jerusalem to Brittany and beyond. Tickets for this CenterArts performance are $45 adults, $25 children, $15 HSU students. Reservations at 826-3928 or l

States of Plays

Where North Coast shows come from By William S. Kowinski


s we pause after the traditional end of last season and before the start of the next, here’s a retrospective question: Where do the plays we see on the North Coast come from? For many decades the answer would have been easy: New York. But that’s no longer true. Back in the mid-1980s I interviewed Jason Robards Jr. backstage at Broadway’s Plymouth Theatre. He was the second generation of three (so far) to be New York stage actors. His father performed on Broadway in the 1920s. “When I was starting out just after World War II,” Robards Jr. said, “my father came to see me, and he told me ‘This is terrible! When I was an actor there were 700 road shows out, and 200-some-odd theatres on Broadway.’ But even when I was starting out we still had 134 theatres in New York, and many road shows and stock jobs and resident theatre jobs.” New York City dominated largely through size. In 1940 it had a bigger population than the entire state of California, or any other state. But war industries spread out across the country during World War II, and suburbia boomed in the 1950s. Robards believed the new highways that sliced through city neighborhoods and led to the suburbs depleted New York City audiences. “Now I think the theatre in New York is going to become

like the opera, if it isn’t already becoming that: a small, specialized thing.” Robards didn’t reckon with the rise of tourist-oriented blockbusters in a Disneyfied Broadway. That trend continues, as movie companies invest more in huge stage productions. The Off-Broadway and then Off-Off Broadway stages rose in the 1960s and ’70s, then settled to a sustainable level as “a small, specialized thing.” So now Broadway produces bigger but fewer shows, and non-Broadway houses have become incubators for shows that will live most of their lives in independent regional and community-based theatres across the country. So last season on the North Coast for instance, we saw products of traditional Broadway, from one of the earliest (Anything Goes at North Coast Rep) to one of the last (Victor/Victoria at Ferndale Rep.). The new blockbuster Broadway was represented by Shrek The Musical (Humboldt Light Opera) while Circle Mirror Transformation (seen at Redwood Curtain) had a modest Off-Broadway run before productions by Seattle Rep and the Guthrie in Minneapolis, and on stages in Marin County and Grand Rapids, Michigan. Meanwhile more shows are developed outside New York, and often don’t even bother with the legitimizing New York showcase. The Fox on the Fairway (seen at NCRT) started in Arlington, Va., before productions in New Brunswick, New Jer-

sey and Naples, Florida. These shows are typically designed for export. Even prizewinning shows with decent Broadway runs (like the musical Next to Normal at NCRT or Proof at HSU) have the small casts and modest staging to be done almost anywhere. Except for local group-generated shows and classics, the North Coast is primarily dependent on this new circuit of shows built for quick and relatively easy replication. Many have virtues and perspectives a New York-generated show might not. But at worst they approach a stereotypical script that’s clever and a little odd but safe and small, with a slick first act and a slack second (that nevertheless includes a thesis statement). The script too often shows signs of too many hands that got tired before the end. What are we missing on local stages? Due mostly to the demographics of our performers as well as our audiences, we seldom get shows centered on nonwhite characters or communities. On the other hand, we get plays written about southerners, New Englanders and even New Yorkers, but not about North Coast characters. Fortunately, our live actors are surprisingly adept at bringing out the universal (or the North Coast) in any play. We also rarely get political plays in the larger sense, apart from gender politics. But hardly anyone in America does. We don’t have a David Hare (one of several British playwrights who look outward) or even a Robert Sherwood, who wrote three Pulitzer Prize winners in the 1930s and a book about FDR and World War II. Tony Kushner is the closest. We’re unlikely to see a play as complex and provocative as Hare’s A Map of the World, for instance. For whatever reasons, it’s not a time for singular playwrights with big voices. Our North Coast stage institutions do include variety, often at some risk. But they operate in a particular theatrical environment, in a particular time and place. Coming Up: Prolific American playwright Steven Dietz is a prime example of this new decentralization. His work is seldom performed in New York but appears so often in regional and community venues that he’s in the top 10 of produced playwrights. His comedy Becky’s New Car opens at Redwood Curtain with a preview on Thursday, Sept. 5, followed by a second preview on Friday and an official opening night on Saturday. Directed by Gail Holbrook, it features Peggy Metzger, Steven J. Carter, Gary Sommers, Shelly Stewart, Randy Wayne, Jessi Shieman and Luke Tooker. Tickets and information: 443-7688, l

Between the Black and White

Thaddeus Zoellner and Michael Royce By Ken Weiderman


motions and identity are tricky. They’re even trickier when attempting to put them into words. It’s one reason why art exists — it allows people to describe the human experience in ways that words don’t, giving voice to the often conflicted, contradictory and complicated nature of living and being. For artists Thaddeus Zoellner and Michael Royce, photography captures that which cannot be spoken. In particular, it reveals the ways in which they discover who they are and how they fit into the rest of the world. “How do you view yourself and feel OK being yourself?” asks Royce. Identity and emotions are topics they’ve both explored through black and white photography in their upcoming tandem show, “Whispered Secrets,” a onenight-only show at C Street Gallery for Eureka’s Arts! Alive on September 7th. Both artists use the figure to explore

the intersections of identity, gender and sexuality, and neither of them feels comfortable with the female/male, gay/ straight, either/or dichotomies surrounding these categories. Royce and Zoellner use their own bodies, as well as those of friends, to create a different gender narrative — one that allows for a gray area in a culture that usually sees things as only black or white. “I use my art to work through emotions that society tells us we may or may not be OK to feel,” says Royce. When it comes to feeling like we don’t fit in, we’re told to “hide that, don’t let anybody see it,” she continues. Royce’s photographs are highly autobiographical, exploring the complexities surrounding past experiences. She resists explicitly defining the work, but states that her images are about uncovering and exhibiting the emotions many people choose to hide. Knowing there are others


out there who don’t fit into neat cultural boxes, she hopes “that other people will be able to connect [to her work] and think, ‘Oh, I felt that way too.’” The emotional foundation of the work is hers, but the underlying struggle the work represents is widespread. For example, when Royce uses herself as a model, she binds her chest with a wrap. For her, that’s normal. That’s how she envisions her body. The androgyny is not the focus of the images, but it does hint at their deeper messages. The binding can be seen as protective or constrictive, positive or negative, complicating familiar expectations and ideas about gender roles. It’s a metaphor for the supposed freedom to be who you are and the accompanying risk of never being fully accepted or valued in our culture. “Soulus” is a photograph that underscores the pain people can feel when they are outside of accepted norms. Royce is shown from the knees up, her head buried in her hands. Dramatic black droplets splatter around her. She’s drawn wings by scratching into the photo through the black, resin-coated surface to expose the white paper below. Most striking though, are the cursive words “love you,” burning through her torso. They are lit from behind by a light box, and the handwriting comes from a letter Royce received from a friend. There’s a lot going on in this piece, and the intricacy of its layers pays honest homage to the thorny nature of understanding and accepting our true selves. Accepting humanity’s multifaceted

pull-out A RT sect i on

nature is the thread that sews these two artists’ work together. “Our work isn’t part of the same sentence,” chimes in Zoellner, “but it’s part of the same paragraph.” Zoellner has long felt isolated in the way he views the world. Tall, blond and muscular, with a deliberate look in his blue eyes, his appearance is masculine. However, he doesn’t “identify with being solely male or solely female. Or even androgynous.” In many ways, he continues, “I identify as both male and female.” Restrictive sexuality labels like gay, straight or bisexual don’t work for him either, and these conflicts can create real turmoil. Zoellner has given mental space to both sides of his persona, naming his feminine side Myra and allowing her to be who she wants to be. “She is frequently a silent passenger,” he says, “but she’s always there and she’s always helping.” When it comes to photography, Myra “has a lot of insight and opinions that the rest of me doesn’t,” admits Zoellner. “It’s kind of a separate thought process.” For his last show, Zoellner created a set of prints that, when assembled, took him aback. It was the first time he’d produced something that came completely from Myra. “That show was Myra telling me she’s there.” In this new show, Zoellner is using both sides of his identity to tell everybody else that she’s there. It’s about defining his entire self and allowing both points of view to be on display. In one multi-layered piece, “Who Holds Together”, a dramatically-lit portrait of Zoellner’s face has been ripped in half. Each side lies askew on top of a second photo of a nude female figure. She emerges confidently from his fractured visage, stretching a heavy chain in front of her chest. The chain provides a visual connection between the two torn halves, while a deeper reading reveals an allegorical reference to the strength and stability Myra brings to Zoellner’s identity. Nested deep in a shadow-box frame, the viewer has to get close to the piece to see it, intensifying the intimacy of Zoellner’s revelation. Zoellner and Royce’s work is intimate, yet the message of their work points out the universality of defining ourselves in a world that tries to do it for us. Their work asks us to explore those private emotions for a better understanding of how we fit into the wider world outside our bodies. ●

Shows Big and Small

The wonders of the local and lesser known By Jennifer Savage


hose who work in entertainment media tend to fall into one of two camps. The first camp tells people about what they already know and enjoy, the idea being that the public likes the comfort of familiarity. The second camp figures that people prefer the thrill of discovery. I’m hoping you’re adventurous types, so I’m not going to spend too much time telling you that Mickey Hart and Sara Bareilles are playing. If you have tickets to see Eureka’s most — and deservedly — successful singer ever (that would be Bareilles), then good on you, ’cause that Van Duzer show sold out in a hot minute, and if you’re going to see Mickey Hart at the Arcata Theatre Lounge, then you’re way more into that scene than I am, and I wish you well.

‘War and Peace’ at the Mateel

Let’s move on — specifically, to a show not for the faint of heart. Thursday night, the Mateel presents Immortal Technique and Brother Ali as they kick off their War and Peace tour. On Immortal Technique: He’s Peruvian out of Harlem, he has intense political views that embrace revolutionary activism and my 17-year-old son has been a fan for years now. On Brother Ali: He’s from Minnesota, he brought serious hook and soul when I saw him onstage with Atmosphere at Outside Lands in 2009 and he delivers messages on faith and love with equal parts earnestness and grit. He’s also, to parrot the conventional summary, “Muslim, albino and legally blind.” But you should check him out for his nerve, not his novelty. The gig is hosted by the “ghetto ambassador” and Brooklyn native Poison Pen, tickets are $27 and doors open at 7 p.m. All ages!

says that the first half of the night will be a “Trini”-dance party — all the best soca and calypso tunes from Trinidad. (Assuming that’s the country and not one of California’s smallest incorporated cities, population 367.) A truly Humboldt experience for those 21-and-over. Cover is $15, music starts around 10 p.m. Oh, and given the inevitable life changes, it’s also one of Steel Standing’s final shows.

Entertainment explosion

Saturday night is one of those times where you might just want to drop your head in your hands and despair over the sheer number of choices you face on the amusement front. Over in Eureka, art comes alive with artists making awkward conversation with wine-drunk fans, buskers enticing you to throw your dollars into guitar cases, shopping opportunities galore and the opportunity to catch up with people you know on every corner. Later in the night, the appropriately named “Late Night with Sherae” marks the second time comedian, emcee, radio host and columnist Sherae O’Shaughnessy does the live talk show thing in the Eureka Inn’s Palm Lounge with musical guests SambAmore. Note: Yours truly will also be her guest, and I have a minuscule role in the

Who: Steel Standing Where: Jambalaya When: Fri., Sept 6, 10 p.m. Tickets: $15

Humboldt Made premiere shindig earlier that night at the Eureka Theatre (see the calendar for details), so there’s that.

Jazz wonder woman

Who: Rhiannon Where: Arcata Playhouse When: Sat., Sept 7, 8 p.m. Tickets: $15 advance, $20 door

On the music side of things, you’ve got Rhiannon at the Arcata Playhouse and Lord Ellis at the Alibi. Talk about your yin and yang. Fans of underground jazz know Rhiannon from her decade with Alive! and her tenure with Bobby McFerrin’s Voicestra. Originally from the Midwest, she was, according to her bio, “lured to California by burgeoning lesbian passions.” Her years of singing, touring and living manifested in her onewoman show, “Toward Home.” More than a vocalist, Rhiannon is a storyteller. Tickets to share her experience are $15 advance, $20 at the door. Show starts at 8 p.m. on Saturday.

Rock gods

The members of Lord Ellis will return to that fabled Alibi corner and bring rawk so big you’ll marvel it fits in such a small space. Founded in 2011, Lord Ellis brings together 20 years of Humboldt County kickass rock tradition. The latest in a line of local legends that include The Hitch, Dragged by Horses, Wasabi and Grimace, Lord Ellis promises to, and I quote, “Knock you off your feet, step on your head, then maybe give you a hand up — if you’re not a total dick.” Rounding out the bill, Seventh Rule Recordings artists Diesto, a sludge metal outfit out of Portland. A quick listen to High as the Sun, Diesto’s sophomore effort, confirms the sludginess. Loud and assaultive, natch. Alibi usual — music starts around 11:15 p.m. on Saturday, show is $5, the guy at the door wants you

to have an ID confirming you are at least 21 years old.

Awna Teixeira

Sunday was supposed to bring us the Portuguese-Canadian multi-instrumentalist Awna Teixeira, best known from her band Po’ Girl, at the Arcata Playhouse, but the show has been canceled. It’s being rescheduled for springtime.

Tuesday temptation

Yet another big weekday show takes place in the form of The Slackers, New York City’s self-described “legendary masters of reggae, ska, soul and rock’n’roll” on Tuesday at Hum Brews. In the 22 years the Slackers have been together, they’ve released a lot of albums embodying that sound that seems to go over so well in Humboldt. Many people will like this show — fans of Sublime, Slightly Stoopid or the Dirty Heads, for example. Tickets are $15, show is 21-and-over, things start around 9:30 p.m.


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

Sweet Ride

This auto-obsessed fundraiser for Boys and Girls Club of the Redwoods hits the road with a poker run from the Eureka Inn to the Fresh Freeze, where everybody’s meeting up for the after-party social. Engines start for the cruise through Old Town at 5:30 p.m. on Friday. No wheels? You can still grease your hair, hang out on the curb with a soda pop and watch the four-wheeled beauties go by. On Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., it’s a full-on retro street fair with food vendors, a show and shine (the pinnacle of fancy car ownership — polishing it up and standing around while people circle and admire), raffle and swap meet (another thrill for collectors — the hunting and haggling!). Have a milkshake, take some photos (go super retro and use an actual camera?) and check out those white walls. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

Gear Heads If you’re into two wheels instead of four, the Tour of Trinidad might be more your speed. On Saturday morning, cyclists can put on those clickety shoes and ride through the beachside town and beyond, starting at Trinidad Elementary School, enjoying the gorgeous views. Show up at 7:30 a.m. to register or sign up online at Beginner? Sign up for the Family Tour ($15). It starts at 10 a.m. and goes to the end of Patrick’s Point Drive through the redwoods for a total of 12 miles. There are some hills on the course, so you’ll want a bike with gears. And don’t forget a helmet and water! The Family Challenge ups the game a little with a 28-mile course of downright inspiring scenery that runs along Westhaven Drive, Highway 101, Dow’s Prairie Road and Old Stagecoach Road ($20). Start time is 9:30 a.m. What, not tough

enough for you? You must want the Rider’s Challenge ($35). Beginning at 9 a.m., you’re looking at over 65 miles of winding roads and hills. This course picks up where the Family Challenge leaves off, touring through Fieldbrook and Blue Lake before returning to the starting line. Anybody else get tired reading that? Well, suck it up. Because the ride benefits Project Share Life, which helps find bone marrow donors for people in need, and it is well worth your sore muscles. Besides, you can feed your pain afterward with a spaghetti dinner from Abruzzi covered by your fee. When it’s all over, you’ll have Tour of Trinidad bragging rights, and if you want to fudge which course you did, we will totally back you up. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

They don’t call them “cuddler whales.”

Cut Bait

Affecting killer whale doc marred by technical flaws By Dev Richards


BLACKFISH. It’s often hard to separate the power of a documentary’s content from the quality of its presentation. The substance of Blackfish is heavy-hitting, devastating and dramatically eye-opening; however, much of the presentation is distracting and poorly devised. Blackfish tells the story of a male orca whale named Tilikum. You may remember this particular orca for his role in the death of SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau in February of 2010. Brancheau was not Tilikum’s first victim, but hopefully she will be his last. The documentary draws attention to the beauty and majesty of orcas, their highly developed brains and how living in captivity pushes them to the brink of insanity. The film does not tiptoe around the heinous reality surrounding orca whales in captivity; the footage is graphic to the

point of making you shift uncomfortably in your chair (baby orcas in nets, mommy orcas crying, trainers being brutally attacked, etc.), and the testimonials from former trainers are heartbreaking. Director and writer Gabriela Cowperthwaite (Animal Nightmares) tells nearly all of the story via newsreel montages, personal and expert testimony, and excerpts from the SeaWorld v. OSHA case that was settled last year. Though the montages and testimony are moving, the court excerpts are awkward. No actual footage was available, so quotes from the case are typed out across the screen, with pencilstyle drawings in the background. To be clear, the drawings are not courtroom sketches; these are faceless, cartooned figures with typed text running over them. The illustrations ruin the flow of the film’s narrative, and make a relatively short

movie feel a lot longer. The repetition of some of the narratives also makes for poor pacing. It feels less like the director is trying to hammer a point home and more like she’s trying to stretch for time. Blackfish presents plenty of airtight arguments, despite its flaws in composition. It would be surprising if people came out of this film without completely reconsidering their thoughts on animals in captivity. Cowperthwaite is clearly talented, and she’s certainly working her way up the documentary film maker ladder, but she still has a lot to learn about style. PG13. 83m. CLOSED CIRCUIT. This isn’t the first time a movie trailer has led to a total letdown. The two-minute preview set up Closed Circuit as a fast-paced conspiracy thriller with sexy British accents, but that was a cloud of lies. The directing talent of John Crowley (Intermission, Boy A) did little to bolster Steven Knight’s (Dirty Pretty Things) pathetically written screenplay, and no amount of sexy pronunciations could draw the ear away from the clumsy dialogue and boring plot. Following a terrorist attack at an open market in London, an arrest is made and a trial is quickly approaching. The original defense lawyer for the prime suspect dies in an apparent suicide, and Martin Rose (Eric Bana) is handed the case. He must work closely with his former lover, Claudia Simmons-Howe (Rebecca Hall), to get to the bottom of the case (gotta hate it when that happens). Once the two of them start to get too close to the truth, it becomes apparent that their lives are in danger. If it sounds exciting, be warned, it’s not. At all. The lack of writing quality is apparent in the first few lines of dialogue. Clumsily inserting the entire exposition into seemingly casual dialogue is a rookie mistake, and Knight has penned too many scripts to be a rookie. Similar lazy writing errors are made throughout the entire film, with graceless explanations of the British legal system, shoddily written romantic entanglements and emotionally flat moments of attempted tension. The ending of the film (which held absolutely no surprises) smacked of cliché and convenience. More than one person in the theater had to be woken up when the credits rolled. So, if you need a two hour nap that will cost you about ten dollars, Closed Circuit might be exactly what you need. If you want a compelling British conspiracy film, then you’re better off renting Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. R. 96m. — Dev Richards

Directions may be obtained pursuant to a written request submitted to the beneficiary: MICHAEL D. CALLAHAN, REBECCA CALLAHAN, and JANICE STENLUND, Successor Trustees - c/o Selzer Home Loans, 551 S. Orchard Ave., Ukiah, CA 95482, telephone: (707) 462-4000 or by contacting the Trustee, Prime Pacific at (707) 468-5300 or mailing request to Prime Pacific, P.O. Box 177, Ukiah, CA 95482 - within 10 days from the first publication of this notice. If a street address or common designation of property is shown in this notice, no warranty is given as to its completeness or correctness. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The total amount of the unpaid obligation, together with reasonable estimate of the costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this notice is $181,994.00. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. The sale will be made without covenant or warranty of title, possession, or encumbrances to satisfy the obligation secured by and pursuant to the power of the sale conferred in that certain Deed of Trust, all advances thereunder, interest provided therein, and fees, charges and expenses of the trustee. The Deed of Trust was executed by JOHN SCHAAFSMA, a single man, as the original Trustor, to RICHARD P. SELZER, as Trustee, for the benefit and security of DAN W. CALLAHAN, Trustee of the Dan W. and Roma L. Callahan Family Trust dated 9/17/2004, as Beneficiary, dated March 25, 2011, and recorded March 31, 2011, in Document No. 2011-6792-6, Official Records of Humboldt County, and said property will be sold “as is” and no warranty or representation is made concerning its present condition.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call PRIME PACIFIC at (707) 468-5300 Ext. 11 [telephone message recording] or you may can call PRIME PACIFIC at (707) 468-5300 Ext. 10 and talk to a person directly. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information (Ext. 11). THE BEST WAY TO VERIFY POSTPONEMENT INFORMATION IS TO ATTEND THE SCHEDULED SALE. The mortgagee or beneficiary is not required to give notice under CA Civil Code Section 2923.5. Dated: August 26, 2013 PRIME PACIFIC – Trustee /s/ By: Mary F. Morris, President No. S-13-02F 9/5, 9/12, 9/19/2013 (13-232) • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013
