Editor: In regards to Ryan Burns’ article “Humboldt Growers’ Bad Reputation,” (“The Week in Weed,” Sept. 12) where he simply assumes the recent water thefts are by pot growers because “in rural Humboldt County there could only be one motive.” Were these water thefts ever tracked to pot growers? Hasn’t it been determined a water truck would have been necessary to steal the school’s water? I personally witnessed a water company truck siphoning from a water hydrant in Garberville a few years ago, and am told that’s not uncommon. Perhaps thieving water companies are selling to pot farmers, but that doesn’t make the farmers themselves thieves. As deputy directory of California NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws), I’d to know if this is being investigated, or just blamed on pot growers (like the Yosemite fire almost was, until it turned out to be a deer hunter instead). Certainly stream diversions and the like are criminal, and are rightly being treated as such, but let’s not paint the problem with the broad brush of prejudice and miss any true culprits. Ellen Komp, Berkeley

Start Writing Tickets Editor: The danger I have personally seen on 101 between Arcata and Eureka is trying to cross and someone coming fast in the passing lane (“Building a Better Corridor,” Sept. 5). With the 50 mph limit, the passing lane, instead of maybe 75 mph, will be pushing 60 mph, a significant improvement. Maybe a third of the drivers now re-

more rarely anyone pulled over. I would suggest that a firm 55 mph be enforced. Make a public announcement of this. Have patrol cars visible. This is the economical, and if the enforcement is sustained, permanent solution to making this stretch as safe as any highway can expect to be. Jessica Bittner, Bayside

Co-op Obtuse Editor: In the Aug. 8 Journal, I wrote that the Co-op hired a right wing, anti-labor law firm to guide their negotiations with the employees’ Union and to attend all the bargaining sessions (“Mailbox”). I observed that is an unnecessary, adversarial, uncooperative, unfair act — since the union does not bring its lawyer. Recent events confirm this. Bargaining sessions have been tense and contentious. There is no sense of cooperation. The lawyer is condescending to the union reps, the manager loses her temper, and the management-board takes a hard line that threatens workers’ standard of living. This combative atmosphere has made this year’s negotiations the most combative and protracted in recent history. This is the result of the adversarial, anti-labor position that the lawyer brings to the management-board side. The lawyer also profits financially from difficult, protracted negotiations, because he is paid for each hour they drag on! The management-board has destroyed cooperative negotiations to such an extent that employees must circumvent the cooperative process and enlist public support for their negotiating position. They have collected 1,500 signatures to leverage the obtuse board. I wrote a letter to the Co-op News on Aug. 19 to alert members to this. I received no editorial response, and my letter was not printed. This suppresses dissent and deprives members of important information. This refutes board member Tim Silva’s pious claim in the September Co-op News that “all Co-op owners are always invited to weigh in on what the Co-op will become.” Silva and his board are paying a reactionary, anti-labor, anti-community, anti-cooperative lawyer to fight Co-op employees. Yet he proclaims the Co-op has an ethical concern for community. It’s time to stop prevaricating and cheerleading. Time to change policy — and personnel. Cooperation with employees and community requires progressive politics of cooperation. Carl Ratner, Trinidad

Bay Trail Update No. 8


ou must be ecstatic,” said my friend as I sat down for lunch last Friday. It was the day after the California Coastal Commission approved Caltrans’ Eureka-Arcata Route 101 Corridor Improvement Project — 13 years in the making. Yes, I am. And so are a few hundred other people I know and — exponentially — a few hundred others they know. Big smiles and high-fives followed that packed hearing in the Wharfinger Building in Eureka. I even went out for a drink afterward with a group that included 4th District Supervisor Virginia Bass, among others. Before I ruin her reputation for being seen with me (or vice versa), let me explain. The Coastal Commission had come to town to hear directly from those of us who walk, bike, hike, drive cars and recreate here on the North Coast. The subject was the Caltrans plan. Two powerful streams of support came together Thursday to convince the commissioners to overrule their own staff. (If you don’t think it’s a big deal for a board or commission to overrule its staff, you haven’t been paying attention to how government works.) The commissioners not only approved the Caltrans plan, on a 9-1 vote, to close the medians on Highway 101 between Eureka and Arcata, install a half signal at Airport Boulevard and — clearly the most controversial part of the plan — construct an underpass/interchange at Indianola Cutoff. They permanently tied the project to construction of the bay trail and, at the last minute, told Caltrans to do its best to remove every last billboard along that stretch. We will see the bay trail built before or during construction of the Caltrans’ project. And the billboard thing? A cherry on top that none of us expected. If you’ve been following any of my “Bay Trail Updates,” you already know I got involved in early 2012 with a pair of modest, polite rabble-rousers — Dennis Rael, co-owner of Los Bagels, and Rees Hughes, retired administrator from Humboldt State University — to form the Bay Trail Advocates. (Later, Don Banducci, cofounder of Yakima, joined us.) I remember

Rees saying, “Now why can’t we have a trail along the bay?” Especially since there was a public right-of-way unused for 15 years by the North Coast Railroad Authority. (Yes, we were not very original. Members of the Humboldt Trails Council and others had been asking the same thing forever.) Fast-forward through last year … nine public hearings, culminating in the unanimous vote by the NCRA board to allow the trail to be built as long as it did not preclude the return of rail service. And on a parallel course, the Caltrans plan was being modified, updated and moving forward. Gleefully, we knew the plan needed a bike and pedestrian solution, which we trail advocates hoped to provide. There is a lot of work yet to be done (including mitigation, which will come up again in the permit process). But it’s time to celebrate and thank so many people who got us through this critical step. The first powerful stream of support came from the 101 Corridor Access Project (CAP) working group — the business owners along 101 who have been meeting for more than 10 years to improve safety. Their testimony was critical. For the Bay Trail, now more than a glimmer in our eye, special thanks to former NCRA Director Bill Kier who, along with former NCRA Director and Humboldt County Supervisor Clif Clendenen, found a way to allow for a trail on NCRA property. (Also, NCRA directors John McCowen and Bernie Meyers.) None of this would have been possible without city and county staffers who really get how important trails are: Humboldt County Association of Governments Executive Director Marcella Clem, Humboldt County Deputy Director for Environmental Services Hank Seemann, and his boss, Public Works Director Tom Mattson. And special shout-outs to city staffers Karen Diemer in Arcata and Mike Knight in Eureka; Merritt Perry of GHD Engineers; and Caltrans Project Manager Kim Floyd, among many, many others.

When it comes to Humboldt’s toxic algae, the picture’s pretty murky By Jacob Shafer


his is exactly what we’re looking for,” exclaims Keith BoumaGregson, his arm submerged to the elbow in a gelatinous muck that looks like a combination of snot and the ooze from Ghostbusters. Carefully, he extracts a dark green blob and rolls it between his fingers.   “Are you worried about handling it?” someone asks. “Well,” he replies. “I am going to wash my hands.” We’re standing by the South Fork of the Eel River in Phillipsville, sandwiched between the freeway and the floodplain. A hot September sun bakes the slowflowing river, which is less than ankle deep in places. A few bugs and pikeminnow flit through the water, but the most visible life form is algae. Lots and lots of algae. Dried on rocks, growing in the shallows, drifting with the current. Most of it is harmless. Gross, but harmless. Yet, as wary Humboldt residents know, a potentially lethal strain of algae has appeared locally in the last decade.

No one knows why, for sure, or how much is out there. Bouma-Gregson, a grad student at UC Berkeley, is among those trying to find out. Along with local ad hoc groups such as the Eel River Recovery Project (ERRP), Bouma-Gregson has spent the last several months monitoring algae blooms in the Eel. He’s a soft-spoken guy, with a freckled neck and bleached arm hair that attest to a summer spent away from the lab and out in the field. About 14 concerned residents have joined him on this sunny Saturday — a decent turnout considering the slimy subject matter — to learn more about the dreaded toxic algae, and what if anything they can do. First off, Bouma-Gregson explains, “algae” is a multifarious term, like “fruit” or “vegetable.” It encompasses a host of organisms, some benign, some deadly. It’s a misnomer to assume that algae in a river is automatically a bad thing, he says. The stuff that should concern swimmers, drinkers and anyone else who relies on

the river is called cyanobacteria, also known as blue-green algae. Some cyanobacteria produce toxins that can damage the liver or nervous system. They pose a particular threat to animals and children, who tend to swallow more water and (in the case of canines, at least) lick themselves after a swim. At least 11 Humboldt dog deaths have been linked to cyanobacteria since 2001; some dogs that ingested the neurotoxin died within minutes. But it’s not as simple as “cyanobacteria equals poison.” Just as there are many types of algae, there are many types of cyanobacteria. Not all produce toxins; some, like Spirulina’s blue-green algae, are even marketed as health products. Though cyanobacteria tend to be less stringy and darker in color, Bouma-Gregson says there’s no eye test that can separate toxic algae from the non-toxic stuff. For that you have to collect a sample and run tests. “It’s a sticky trap,” explains BoumaGregson, holding up what looks like a bit of mesh wrapped around an embroidery ring. And, in fact, that’s exactly what it is. The mesh is treated with a special resin that snares particles, including any toxins. It’s better than simply scooping up water at random, Bouma-Gregson says, because it gives a picture of what’s flowing downriver over a given period. He’s already

begun sending the traps off for analysis, and expects the results soon. Of course, that won’t settle the issue. Far from it. “The goal of my next few summers is finding out what’s causing the cyanobacteria,” says Bouma-Gregson. Pressed for guesses, he cites lower flows, higher temperatures and changing nutrient concentrations. That could mean the culprit is human use (including fertilizer runoff from marijuana grows), climate change or some combination of the two. Or something else entirely. “Quite simply, we need more data,” says Bouma-Gregson. Collecting that data is an arduous task, one that can’t be accomplished by a few biologists and community groups scrambling for grant money. But if everyone who lives on the Eel’s South Fork, or another impacted watershed, pitched in, answers might come faster. Crowdsourced science, in other words. Bouma-Gregson points to the website, where users can post photos and observations and tag them to a specific location. Groups like the Eel River Recovery Project also welcome reports from the public. Documented data, Bouma-Gregson says, “is what makes science work, but it also makes it more work.” When it comes to solving the mystery of the killer muck, clearly the work is just beginning. l

the week in WEed

Expensive Weed By Ryan Burns


ast Thursday, a crew of volunteers was helping the state Department of Fish and Wildlife conduct a marijuana-eradication mission in a remote part of the Sequoia National Forest when Shane Krogen, a 57-yearold volunteer, fell out of a helicopter, dropping 50 feet to his death. Friends described him as a generous and dedicated outdoorsman who was committed to protecting natural lands. According to media reports, his loved ones tried to find solace in the fact that he died doing just that. Should Krogen’s death be laid at the feet of marijuana? That’s complicated. By itself, of course, the plant is not at all lethal. A recent post on the Huffington Post teased readers with the headline, “Here Are All the People Who Have Died From a Marijuana Overdose.” Click the link and you see a GIF of baby panda bears frolicking. The point? There’s never been a single confirmed case of someone dying strictly from pot. (Also, baby pandas are super-cute.) But as with alcohol, prohibition has sent the weed industry into the shadows of the underground — and, more literally, onto our precious natural lands. And because it’s a black market, people are occasionally killed in pursuit of the industry’s wildly inflated profits. That same pursuit is leading to destruction of our region’s wilderness, and Krogen died trying to protect it. It’s difficult to reconcile these deaths with the relatively benign impacts of the plant itself. It’s even harder to justify the 70-year “war” against cannabis, which at best could be described as a zero-sumgame. Economists estimate that taxpayers effectively spend between $10 billion and $20 billion every year fighting the war on pot. We’re also arresting tokers at near record levels. According to statistics released by the FBI earlier this week, there were 749,824 marijuana arrests in 2011 (the most recent data available), and a whopping 87 percent of those arrests were for mere possession. What do we have to show for our ef-

forts? Marijuana use has increased over the last decade. In both 2001 and 2003, 38 percent of Americans acknowledged that they have used marijuana, according to the Pew Research Center. Earlier this year the number was up to 48 percent, and a majority of Americans now favor full legalization for the first time in more than four decades of polling. When weed is eventually legalized and regulated, which is where things seem to be headed, three quarters of a million fewer people will be arrested each year and, inevitably, fewer people will die. The downside for many locals, of course, will be smaller profits. What’s worth more? Elsewhere: • Last week in this space we mentioned the Medical Cannabis Regulation and Control Act, which would have placed regulation in California under the jurisdiction of the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC). The bill didn’t make it to the floor of the Legislature before Friday’s deadline, but its sponsors say they’ll try again in January. • More than 150 people in Colorado have gotten sick from synthetic marijuana and three may have died from it, according to NPR. Which prompts the question: Why would anybody smoke mysterious chemicals designed to imitate marijuana, especially in a state where the real thing is now legal? • A pro-legalization group called Fire It Up Kansas got shot down in its attempt to adopt a highway in the sunflower state. The Kansas Department of Transportation said it was only the second application denied in the past decade. The first was from the KKK. • The Associated Press last week reported on Jamaican “ganja tours” being offered to tourists. For $50, a pot farmer nicknamed “Breezy” will give you a tour of his farm and a sample of his crop. Pot remains illegal in Jamaica, but many residents now say legalization could give the country’s struggling economy a boost by capitalizing on its weedy reputation. •

The funding will “support the tribe’s efforts to control water pollution, enhance the tribe’s wetlands preservation and restoration program, and provide community outreach and staff environmental training,” according to an EPA release. It will cover two years of work on 45 miles of the Klamath and 5,800 acres of wetlands. ● COMMUNITY / BY RYAN BURNS / MONDAY, SEPT. 16 AT 2:34 P.M.

Arkley vs. Bridges: On Treating the Needy

The Bible has a lot to say about helping the needy, but we doubt that even the Holy Ghost saw this day coming. Good people of Humboldt County, we urge you to lock your doors, board up your windows and hide your canned food — because it looks like the meek got tired of ROB ARKLEY waiting for their inheritance. Dear All, Our County and City are being taken over by the homeless. So begins an email to the community from Eureka businessman Rob Arkley, who argues that by offering free food, showers and clean clothes, we have turned our region into “a Mecca for the homeless and we all pay the price.” The email, which went out last week and was posted on the Lost Coast Outpost, announces a meeting this Wednesday at Eureka’s Wharfinger building at 5:30 p.m. (Arkley’s company, Security National, rented the venue for the occasion.) How

do we quell this homeless insurrection? Arkley suggests pinching off the teat of human kindness. “I would like to know what policies and programs can be cut that will reduce the number of homeless,” he says. But it looks like Jesus wasn’t the only bearded hippie with a soft spot for mooching layabouts. That’s right: Jeff Bridges, whose family has roots in Eureka, recorded JEFF BRIDGES a personal message to Humboldt County attendees of tomorrow night’s screening of the documentary A Place at the Table, presented by Food for People and the California Center for Rural Policy. And wouldn’t you know it? Not only will the event include “a light meal,” it’s also free. When will they learn? Arkley’s full email and video of Bridges announcing the film can be viewed at ● COMMUNITY / BY RYAN BURNS / FRIDAY, SEPT. 13 AT 4:47 P.M.

‘Let’s Have Intercourse’ — An Etymological Mystery

In last week’s cover story on the notso-sleepy town of Loleta, Heidi Walters recalls the town’s late-19th century days as a railroad depot known as Swauger’s Station. “The townspeople,” reported Walters, “changed the name in 1897 to Loleta — a Wiyot term, lo-le-tah, meaning ‘pleasant place at the end of the water.’” Ah, how sweet and idyllic. And indeed, that appears to be the official word on the matter. But today, a dim memory rose to the surface of our collective Journal-brain: Some years ago, National Geographic published an interactive map of the United States filled with definitions of town names derived from Native American languages. If you click and hover over our region of the map, you see this: Loleta, as in Loleta, Calif., means “Let’s Have Intercourse.”

Can that be true? Well, yes. At least according to Trinidad resident Ellen Golla, who wrote a letter to the editor of the Times-Standard back in 2007 recounting the following tale: In 1893, the residents of what was then known as Swauger’s Station decided to change the town’s name. Mrs. Rufus F. Herrick consulted a Wiyot elder to find an appropriate indigenous appellation. The Indians actually called it katawólo ‘t. A joke was played on Mrs. Herrick. The elderly gentleman told her that it was hó wiwItak. This does not translate as “beautiful place at the end of the river,” but rather “Let’s have intercourse!” She interpreted the last part of the phrase, in baby-talk fashion, as Loleta. And thus she suggested “Loleta” to the residents of the town, which they accepted. Golla cited as her source the 1970 tome “California Place Names” by the late Edwin G. Gudde, a former professor of linguistics and anthropology at UCLA. We tracked down the citation, and it turns out Gudde’s definition has an even more plaintive and explicit tone: “Come on, let’s have sexual intercourse.” (Emphasis added.) And here we find another source, “Native American Placenames of the United States” by William Bright, that says essentially the same thing. Both authors identify their source as Karl V. Teeter, a linguist who worked extensively with the last native speaker of the Wiyot language and published a book called The Wiyot Language and a two-volume Wiyot Handbook, according to his obituary. So there you have it, folks. Loleta is not just a town with a cheese factory, a meat market, a bakery and lots of nice folks. It’s also a garbled plea for sex. ● GOVERNMENT / BY GRANT SCOTTGOFORTH / FRIDAY, SEPT. 13 AT 9:41 A.M.

Bill Panos — who was hired as Eureka’s city manager last November — has submitted a letter of resignation, the Lost Coast Outpost reports.

Go-Ahead for 101 Corridor Project

Going against its own staff’s recommendation, the California Coastal Commission this evening voted 9-1 to give a conditional federal consistency determination (translation: a go-ahead) to Caltrans’ proposed project for the 101 corridor between Arcata and Eureka. And that’s not all: The “conditional” part of the approval means that Caltrans will have to address a number of community concerns before a Coastal Development Permit will be issued. First off, Caltrans must include a bicycle trail in its project design. Secondly, Caltrans must submit a plan to remove not just the one billboard it planned to take down (at Indianola) but all of the billboards along the corridor, to the extent feasible. (With all the jurisdictions involved this likely won’t wind up being every last billboard, but still: Many of those suckers will come down.) And third, Caltrans must integrate sealevel-rise analysis in its design. The decision came after several hours of public testimony, the majority of which was in favor of the project. As designed, the project includes median closures at most intersections, a half signal at Airport Boulevard and an interchange at Indianola Boulevard. (For background, see last week’s cover story, “Building a Better Corridor.”) That interchange was the major point of contention between Caltrans and commission staff. The staff argued that the over/under-pass could induce development in the Indianola area, would create a visual blight and would have a more significant impact on the environment than a fully signalized intersection (staff’s recommendation for Indianola). Representatives of local environmental groups including Humboldt Baykeeper, the North Coast Environmental Center and the Environmental Protection Information Center (EPIC) all urged the commission to deny the project and tell Caltrans to go back to the drawing board. The groups all suggested that other design alternatives — such as roundabouts or continued on next page • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, SEPT. 19, 2013

“Michigan lefts” at Indianola — were never fully considered by Caltrans. But elected officials, including County Supervisors Mark Lovelace and Rex Bohn and Arcata City Councilmembers Susan Ornelas and Mark Wheetley, along with a number of local business owners and government workers, urged the commission to move forward with the project due to safety concerns. Commission members had taken a tour of the corridor yesterday to understand the context, and Commissioner Jana Zimmer got the biggest laugh of the day when she described the experience of crossing 101 at Indianola. “I don’t know whose idea it was to put us in a bus with no seat belts and cross that intersection — two times,” she said, “but it had an effect.” Caltrans can now move forward with the project while incorporating the conditions set forth by the commission. It will still need to obtain a Coastal Development Permit before construction begins. ● CRIME / BY RYAN BURNS / THURSDAY, SEPT. 12 AT 12:34 P.M.

Two Crossbows Found Near Murder Site

Sheriff’s Office investigators found two crossbows near the site of the Sept. 8 attack on the Samoa peninsula, which left one man dead and another injured. Phoenix Triton King, whose 21st birthday is today, was arrested for the crime on Monday, along with an unidentified 16-year-old girl. Press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office: On Wednesday September 11, 2013 at about 2:30 PM, investigators from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office returned to the incident location of this homicide. Investigators returned to search for the missing crossbows that were alleged to be used in this incident. Investigators were able to locate two separate crossbows that are believed to be used in this homicide investigation. The crossbows were found about 150 yards from where the deceased victim was located. The crossbows were found in a heavily brush/ wooded area and were in a condition as if they were discarded. The make/model/ type of crossbow is not being released. ● GOVERNMENT / BY RYAN BURNS / WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 11 AT 2:12 P.M.

New Eureka Police Chief

After a frustrated withdrawal by previ-



ous front-runner Michael Johnson, Eureka City Manager Bill Panos today announced that Andrew G. Mills, a former commanding officer in San Diego, is slated to be the next chief of the Eureka Police Department. The Eureka City Council plans to confirm Mills at its Oct. 1 meeting, according to a press release, and he’s scheduled to start on Nov. 4. From the press release: Mills is a national award winning law enforcement professional and brings years of command and community policing experience to the position. Most recently, he was the commanding officer of San Diego’s Western Division responsible for patrol and investigations for over 140,000 residents, the airport and large business districts. In that part of San Diego he also led efforts with the mental health community to handle a large homeless population, increased efforts to reduce violent street robberies and transformed their neighborhood watch programs. ● EDUCATION / BY KACI POOR / TUESDAY, SEPT. 10 AT 11:47 P.M.

School Trustees Ask for Dan Johnson’s Resignation

After nearly an hour of tense — and at times downright chaotic — comments about a plagiarized graduation speech and its subsequent handling, Northern Humboldt Union High School District trustees voted 3-1 this evening to ask Dan Johnson to resign. Johnson sat calmly as his fellow trustees voted, and said nothing afterward about whether he would take their advice. While unable to force Johnson, an

elected official, from his seat, the board’s vote was a harsh condemnation of his actions — or, as some board members put it, inactions. The decision came during a strained, sometimes raucous evening. Roughly 100 people jammed into the McKinleyville High School multi-purpose room, sometimes shouting at each other and over each other. Several people expressed their support for Johnson, saying they had accepted his apology and that it was time to move on. Others called Johnson’s apology inadequate, tardy and insulting. They demanded the board take immediate action. The school trustees initially expressed optimism about moving forward, pointing to a plan they released back in July to avert future plagiarism. It wasn’t until Johnson — who has been absent from the board’s past two meetings citing “pretty intense personal issues” — spoke that things started going downhill. Johnson started off by thanking his supporters. He apologized to the board for missing the August and July meetings. And then he launched into a public statement. “I am sorry for the people with the not-so-kind words that feel the way they feel,” he said. “I think if you really got to know me you would have a different interpretation. Unfortunately people who have those unkind words don’t really know who the hell I am as a person.” Johnson said it’s time the district moved on. Then things got a little ugly. When one woman sitting near the front reacted to his speech with audible scorn, something between a snort and a laugh, Johnson yelled at her as if she were a disobedient schoolgirl. “You need to respect me,” he said. Just as a teacher would make

a disrespectful student stand in a hallway, Johnson told her to “head out of the room and go and sit in the hallway.” She declined. It was an uncomfortable, clearly frustrated board that took up discussion once Johnson’s speech was over. Trustee Dana Silvernale, one of the three trustees up for re-election in November, spoke first. “It seems to me that something more has to be done,” she said. “I don’t want this to go on any longer. We need a resolution this evening.” A pained Mike Pigg agreed, saying that he felt the board was at a crossroads. “I don’t think we can heal from this,” said Pigg, the board president. Board member Colleen Toste was more blunt. “What I hear,” she said, “is that we either need a sincere apology or we need Dan to resign.” The only dissenting trustee, Dan Collen, took the middle ground, saying that while he didn’t necessarily like Johnson’s apology, he had accepted it. If the voters want Johnson off the board, they have the option of a recall, he said. Ultimately, Toste, Silvernale and Pigg voted to ask for Johnson’s resignation. Pigg, who has known Johnson since their high school days, said the vote was one of the toughest decisions of his life. Unlike Collen, the three who voted to ask Johnson to step down are all facing re-election in November. Johnson abstained. After the public session, Johnson called out “no comment” to approaching reporters and strode away. A video of Johnson’s comments to the school board and public is available at ●

Water’s for Fighting How California and the feds sold off more water than north state rivers usually hold By Grant Scott-Goforth


hen’s the last time you visited the Trinity River? Late spring, when the bathtub rings begin to appear on rocks near Kimtu, when crisp, warm air and cold, fast flows combine to beckon swimmers? Late August, when the canyon walls are bleached, baked and orange-hued from overhead wildfire smoke? Winter, when the water pours into the river from every stream, rivulet and stone, carving an ever so slightly deeper canyon, clearing sediment from holes and thrusting boulders downstream? The Trinity never would have carved its way out of the mountains in such spectacular fashion without the Trinity Alps’ snowmelt and dozens of tributaries that feed it every year; never would have been home to hundreds of thousands of salmon, and the animals and native people who relied on them. But although the Trinity flows mightily into the Klamath River each year, much of the river’s water is siphoned off, part of California’s massive restructuring of the state’s natural water flows. Only in the last two centuries has the flood of human ingenuity — sometimes praised, sometimes scorned — changed how California uses and understands water, from the Trinity to waterways far beyond.

A surge of European immigrants

flocked to California to seek gold in 1849, but it was water that soon became one of the state’s most valuable resources. Who got the water — and who didn’t — could spell the difference between growth and stagnation, between plenty and poverty. The winners and losers depended on who had water rights — the legal right to use a waterway or divert some of its flow elsewhere. There are two basic forms of water rights. Riparian water rights are based on English common law and basically say, “If a stream runs through your property, you can use it.” That principal can make sense in wet climates, but it doesn’t help farmers who don’t own riverfront land. Appropriative water rights are more common in the Western U.S. (Oklahoma and California are the only Western states that continue to recognize riparian rights.) These rights say water can be moved as long as it’s being put to good use, whether for farming, fishing, mining or municipal use. Appropriative rights, which began being granted in California in 1914, are typically secondary to riparian rights. “California has an almost unpredictable mix of those two,” said UC Berkeley Water Center Executive Director Carolyn Remick. That combination, along with


statewide exchanges and deals over the last 100 years, make for a convoluted rights system overseen by the State Water Board. As California grew, the State Water Board awarded water rights to the state and federal governments to build two vast water projects, promising even more water from the north state’s rich runoff to be delivered through a network of dams and canals. When environmental consciousness began to roil over lost fish and dewatered streams, lawsuits and government rulings began narrowing the spigot, allowing less and less water to be siphoned away for agriculture and increasing the water given to fish and the environment. Today, powerful water brokers have made contracts that promise far more water than nature can deliver — particularly in the face of growing populations and climate change. Much of that water moves through the two major projects that define California’s waterscape. The Central Valley Project, run by the federal government, and the State Water Project collect water behind dams and move it through rivers, pipes, pumps and canals. These storied channels, carved out of the dry California earth, feed one of the richest agricultural plains in the United States. What started as collaborations among small

farmers grew into powerful irrigation districts that supply large ag producers. And all the while, farmers, fishermen, tribes and local governments have been fighting over the right to store, release and reroute water. The result: a torrent of lawsuits when the water dries up. This year, which set dryness records in the Sacramento and San Joaquin river basins, the Hoopa Tribe and fish advocates joined the federal government in fighting off a lawsuit over Trinity River water brought by powerful Central Valley irrigators. The Trinity River is split in two ways: The Bureau of Reclamation controls storage of Trinity water and has stategranted rights to sell it to irrigators, cities and industrial users. But there are certain guarantees for downstream flows to protect fish and tribal fishing, based on orders from the Bureau’s parent, the U.S. Department of the Interior. Those guarantees were made when the dams were built to ease concerns about the Trinity being sucked dry, and flows increased in later years when environmental impacts came into sharper focus. In this way, the state’s water is tangled up in a net being pulled from many sides, and a new, governor-approved proposal for the Sacramento River Delta has people from Hoopa to Stockton up in arms.

So why does Southern California

get to drink our milkshake? With fresh statehood, the California legislature in 1850 adopted riparian water laws, and land purchases along Central Valley waterways limited many landowners’ access to water. In the late 1870s, a state engineer was hired and work began on ways to draw water from the state’s lush Sacramento River to the arid San Joaquin Valley and farther south. From north of Redding, the Sacramento wends its way south and meets with other tributaries — including the Feather and American rivers, pouring off the Sierra Nevada mountains — before entering the Pacific Ocean through the marshy wetlands of the delta in northeast San Francisco Bay. After decades of legislation (including the controversial establishment of regional irrigation districts) and a variety of proposals and approvals of dams and canals, the state called for a comprehensive Central Valley Plan in the 1920s. But even with approval of $170 million in bonds, the state couldn’t afford it, so it turned to the federal government. In 1935, President Franklin Roosevelt approved funding for the Central Valley Project — part of the New Deal wave of building projects — and construction began. The federal Central Valley Project is a massive complex of dams, canals, tunnels and pumps that stores Sacramento River water. Just upstream of the delta, the Bureau of Reclamation routes some of that water to the San Joaquin Valley. Meanwhile, the Trinity River was being eyed as part of a continuing effort by the state to have its own water project. But in 1945, California dropped the Trinity portion of its State Water Project. This prompted headlines on the North Coast heralding the assurance of Humboldt County’s water supply, but the enthusiasm was short-lived. When the state wrote the Trinity off, the feds picked it up as part of its Central Valley Project. The Whiskeytown Dam, a transfer point for Trinity water on its way to the Sacramento, was dedicated by President John F. Kennedy in 1963. From Trinity Lake, water flows through

a series of pumps, power plants and tunnels in its journey through the Trinity Mountains. Trinity Lake — with a storage capacity of 2.5 million acre-feet of water — is the starting point for the annual diversion of hundreds of thousands of acre-feet south. From 2000 to 2010, Reclamation pumped nearly 7.8 million acre-feet of Trinity Reservoir water to the Central Valley. During that same period, 6.2 million acre-feet were allowed to flow downstream. Trinity Dam water runs through a power plant and on to Lewiston Lake, where it’s released to the west or pumped into Whiskeytown Lake. From there, it tumbles down to the Keswick Reservoir, which holds back the Sacramento River north of Redding. All told, Trinity River water drops about 1,800 feet from Trinity Lake to the Sacramento River bed, producing vast amounts of energy in Reclamation power plants. It’s a source of pride for its engineers and controversy for those who have been fighting for their share of the water. In the course of divvying up a newly tapped treasure trove of water, Reclamation began promising water to irrigators up and down the Central Valley. All told, in 1963, the bureau awarded contracts for more than 8 million acre-feet of Trinity River water. Water that in 50 years’ time would be impossible to deliver.

“Paper Water”

The Bureau of Reclamation doles out water each year to its contractors — Central Valley irrigators, cities and industrial users. But Reclamation hasn’t delivered 100 percent of the water promised in those contracts in more than 20 years. When the Central Valley Project was being developed, the Bureau of Reclamation began making contracts to sell water to irrigators. In its effort to gain water rights, Reclamation made “exchange” contracts with irrigators who had riparian rights on the east side of the San Joaquin River. By giving up the right to draw water directly from the river, those farmers were given contracts for more secure water through the Central Valley Project, explained Reclamation spokesman Pete Lucero. Reclamation also made similar deals continued on next page • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013


continued from previous page with users north of the Delta who would draw from the Sacramento River. Those deals resulted in many senior claims to water — essentially first place in line — for those irrigators. And while some of its customers regularly get their full water complement, those with junior water claims are given small percentages. In the Central Valley Project, that’s irrigators on the west side of the San Joaquin Valley (such as Westlands Water District), which were among the last contractors with Reclamation and so have junior water rights. “They came late to the party,” when the Central Valley Project was completed in 1963, Lucero said. Now, Reclamation has more than 250 contracts attached to the Central Valley Project. That discrepancy between the amount of water available and the amount of wa-

It’s not bad science that created those over-allocations, Remick said. “Really it’s planned for when there’s a wet year. Anticipating that there’s an excess. It’s optimism — and ‘how do you prevent a scramble?’” In its effort to prevent that scramble, Reclamation and the state promised nearly seven times the amount of available Trinity River water in contracts, according to a 2012 report by the California Water Impact Network. “In plain language,” the report reads, “this means there is really very little if any water available to the Central Valley Project and the State Water Project at any time.” Because California winters rarely deliver a full glass of water, the Bureau of Reclamation forecasts each year’s water supply and issues curtailed portions of contracted water to Central Valley contract holders. Tom Stokely of the California Water Impact Network put it bluntly. “They will never get 100 percent of their water contracts,” he said. “This is not a new phenomenon. They’ve been sweeping it under the rug for years.”

Tr i n

ter promised is what the California Water Impact Network calls “paper water.” The Network is a nonprofit environmental law and policy group that seeks environmental protection of the Bay Delta and other California waterways through policy and litigation. The organization has filed lawsuits over environmental irrigation practices, endangered and threatened species, and has been critical of the state’s billion-dollar Bay Delta restoration plan. And while “paper water” is sometimes a source of strife, with water users pulling at the supply from both ends of the state, Berkeley Water Center Director Carolyn Remick said it’s actually meant to prevent disputes. Think of it this way: Reclamation’s contracts represent California waterways when they’re completely saturated — a glass 100 percent full. If and when OREGON the state gets a year that wet, that water is spoken for. th Ri ver a m If the glass was full Kla and the water wasn’t 100 percent spoken Trinity Reservoir for, it could spur furiTrinity Keswick Shasta Dam ous grasping for the Dam Reservoir i ve leftovers. r Shasta Dam Lewiston Dam Whiskeytown REDDING ity

Central Valley Project water was overallocated by the time Trinity River water began flowing into the Sacramento River, Stokely said. And it’s gotten worse since then. In the early 1980s, Interior Secretary Cecil Andrus ordered the federal dam operators to increase flows down the Trinity to benefit fish. In 1991, Reclamation was ordered by the Department of the Interior to make the Trinity’s permanent flow larger — from about 120,000 acre-feet per year to an average of 340,000 acre-feet per year — though the Trinity wouldn’t see those flows until 2000, when the federal government adopted a record of decision. In 1992, Congress granted extra water for Central Valley wetlands and Sacramento Delta fish, further reducing Reclamation’s available water. In the last 32 years, Reclamation began to give back more than 1 million acre-feet of water to the environment, “yet there’s no adjustments to water contracts or water rights,” Stokely said. Over-allocation is far from exclusive to the Trinity or to the Bureau of Reclamation. A state plan to dam the Eel River in Mendocino — adding 5 million acre-feet to the State Water Project’s resources — was undone when then-Gov.

continued from previous page water-strapped Central Valley agriculture is an industry worth billions. Let the Central Valley have some Trinity water, Orcutt said, but Humboldt County needs that 50,000 acre-feet. The Hoopa Tribe doesn’t have the resources to continue going to court to fight for water Humboldt County was guaranteed in the 1950s, and Orcutt hopes current litigation brought by Westlands and pressure from Humboldt County supervisors and Congressman Jared Huffman will force the courts — or the Department of the Interior — to permanently grant Humboldt County the long-disputed 50,000 acre-feet.

Jerry Brown, and “they’re never going to make a decision that makes the governor unhappy,” he said. Reclamation isn’t taking a stance on allocations, Lucero said, focusing instead on conservation and efficiency. “Those who really need the water are really conscious of conservation,” he said. For example, Lucero said, the Central Valley agriculture industry has largely forsaken waterintensive flood or sprinkler irrigation for drip lines.

It’s impossible to trace

exactly how many gallons of Trinity water end up at any particular farm or faucet across California, but damming the Trinity provided the paper water that has given added leverage (and sometimes even water) to Central Valley irrigators ever since, according to water analyst Tom Stokely. Raising the most controversy are water agencies south of the Bay Delta, including the Westlands Water District and the San Luis Mendota Water Authority, which recently sued Reclamation over its plan to send water down the Trinity at the request of environmentalists, government officials and the Hoopa and Yurok tribes. The crux of that lawsuit is a nearly 60-year battle over 50,000 acre-feet of Trinity River water. In 1955, in a hurry to authorize the Trinity River division into the Central Valley Project, lawmakers made a compromise: Trinity River water could go to the Central Valley so long as “not less than an annual quantity of 50,000 acre-feet will be available for the beneficial use of Humboldt County and other downstream users.” On top of that, said Hoopa Tribal Fisheries Director Mike Orcutt, Reclamation signed a contract with Humboldt County assuring the delivery. “Since that project’s been in place there’s never been that release,” he said. Reclamation confirms that the 50,000 acre-feet has never been released. “Downstream users” — fisheries, tribes and environmentalists — and government officials have called for the release of that water several times in the last decade following a Klamath River fish kill that could have been prevented by the release, the groups say. Reclamation released extra flows in August of 2012 and was preparing to do so again this August when a Fresno judge issued a temporary restraining order against the release. Westlands Water District and the San Louis Delta Mendota Water Authority sued Reclamation to stop the release, saying it was a waste of water to let it flow to the Pacific Ocean instead of keeping it in reserve for next year’s summer season.

After testimony from the Hoopa and Yurok tribes, the judge lifted the restraining order and allowed a smaller release. As to be expected, perhaps, given the politics of water, both sides claimed victory. Reclamation, tribes and fishermen said the extra flows — which they say were necessary to prevent the deaths of thousands of chinook salmon — were just. Irrigators said the judge’s release of flows was far less total water from the reservoir that the defendants had initially asked for. Reclamation owns the rights to Trinity River water, and both downstream users and Central Valley irrigators are claimants. And while Humboldt County has senior claims to the water, people on the North Coast say Westlands and other Central Valley interests wield the money and political clout to pull water southward. Westlands spokeswoman Gayle Holman

declined to comment on the Trinity River water — citing the ongoing litigation — or the water district’s position on water conflicts in California in general. Orcutt said tribal elders recount tales of Reclamation’s representatives assuring Humboldt County water. “‘All you have to do is call us up and we’ll release the water downstream,’ they said. Yeah — we called up — and we’re immediately in court 400 miles away from our reservation,” Orcutt said. Orcutt acknowledges that Westlands and other users face serious problems with the increased demand for water. Their customers, some of California’s biggest agricultural producers, were essentially created by Reclamation. Without water from the Central Valley Project and State Water Project, the dry western San Joaquin Valley would never have become the farming powerhouse it is today. And now,

That north-south tussle is coming to a head in the highly controversial Bay Delta Restoration Project, which has given Trinity River advocates the perhaps unlikely allies of Central Valley irrigators in the northern part of the state. The Bay Delta Conservation Plan is a proposed set of massive tunnels that would transfer water the Sacramento River just before it flows into the bay to the waterways in the southern half of the Central Valley. Conceived by the state and Reclamation — with approval from Gov. Brown — the plan aims to help restore the Delta and its plant and wildlife while increasing water flows to the south. But opponents say the multi-billion dollar plan is just another attempt to increase Southern California’s access to Sacramento River water that simply doesn’t exist. There’s a bottleneck of water deliveries at the delta, said water analyst Tom Stokely. “Anything to clear that bottleneck will serve to drain northern reservoirs and fill southern reservoirs,” he said. “This may happen anyway under climate change, but it will hasten the emptying of reservoirs.” While the project doesn’t include plans to take more water from the Trinity, Stokely said that Reclamation needs every drop of water it can get — including that disputed 50,000 acre-feet — to justify the Bay Delta plan. As currently proposed, the Bay Delta recovery model includes that water. Hoopa Fisheries Director Mike Orcutt said that’s a reason to get a judge to recognize Humboldt County’s right to the water, and soon. “We need to get it on our side of the ledger here.” Joining many opponents of the Bay Delta project are some Central Valley irrigators — those north of the delta, at least. John Herrick serves as an attorney for the South Delta Water Agency, which doesn’t supply water to irrigators but serves as a legal and political entity for

water users in southern San Joaquin County who rely on Sacramento River delta water. More water pumped out of the delta stands to make their water stagnant, salty and unusable. “It’s sort of life or death for us,” he said. Claims that the Bay Delta Project will increase the health of the delta just don’t stand up when fresh water is expected to be pumped south before it reaches the delta, Herrick said. It’s simply a push from state contractors in the Bakersfield and Los Angeles areas, as well as Reclamation contractors in the Central Valley, to increase access to the Sacramento River. “They continually have to press the bounds of acceptance to get enough water.” “The sad part is California has insufficient water to provide for the needs of the exporters,” Herrick said. “Everything is a redistribution or a theft of someone else’s water. There’s one of those general rules in life: If the exporters are on one side, the right ones are on the other.” Asked about north state critiques, Westlands spokesman Holman began to compare water politics to muddied waters, before declining to comment. “We just need to pass on it,” she said. With this year’s release flowing downstream, it’s up to Westlands whether it will pursue its lawsuit for a long-term judgment on the 50,000 acre-feet of water. North Coast interests — including Congressmen Jared Huffman, Mike Thompson and George Miller — continue to pressure the Department of the Interior to commit to that release. In an op-ed in the San Francisco Chronicle last week, Huffman chastised Reclamation, writing that the Department of the Interior “has been dithering for years” in granting Humboldt County its owed 50,000 acre-feet. Reclamation has issued no response to the Congressmen’s request earlier this year, Huffman wrote. Meanwhile, people are reveling in the last days of summer river fun. The salmon are pouring into the Klamath, soon to be swimming up the Trinity to spawn and die. While Californians fight to keep that cycle of life turning, the only certain thing is the continuing struggle over California’s water. ●

Down and Dirty

The black death — aka landscape fabric — stifles your soil and looks lousy when it inevitably peeks through. photo by user Steve Elgersma/a440

Why I Hate Landscape Fabric By Genevieve Schmidt


ometimes I try to be fair and balanced on an issue so I don’t sound like some kind of gardening zealot. Today isn’t one of those times. I think landscape fabric sucks. There, I said it. I regret using it in nearly every case that I have, and I try my hardest to show my clients why they shouldn’t use it either. I’m not judging you if you want to try using the stuff — I understand why people want to. But after 17 years of designing and maintaining gardens professionally, it’s a rare garden where I go “Oh yeah, that landscape fabric really worked out well!” Here’s why I hate it so: 1. It sucks the life out of your soil. Your soil is the happy home of billions and trillions of microorganisms which break down organic and mineral matter into usable nutrients for your plants to use for growth. What’s that mean in normal language? Your established shrubs and trees don’t have to depend on you to fertilize them, because you’ve got this crazy army of micro-beasties making fertilizer out of your existing soil. How’s that for a money saver? I’m not a scientist, so I don’t know the stats on it, but I can tell you what I have seen over and over again with my own eyes: After 10 years, you pull up the landscape

fabric, and that soil is dead. Like — dead, dead. Soil that started out cool, crumbly, loose — a soil that plants could stretch, wiggle their toes and relax into — becomes hard, dusty and impossible to dig with your hands. There’s no organic matter left, water runs off the surface, and it’s tough to dig new planting holes. I don’t know what’s going on under a microscope, but what you can see with your bare eyes is a big soil fail. 2. It kills the earthworms. Or at least it makes them go away. Earthworms like to do two things that are incompatible with landscape fabric: They like to eat compost, and they like to poke their heads out of the soil periodically to breathe and wriggle and do their earthwormy thing. Earthworms rock because they keep your soil aerated with all their tunneling and wiggling, and their castings have all kinds of nutrients that help your plants grow. A soil without earthworms quickly becomes hard and sad. 3. The compost disappears surprisingly fast. In like three years, a substantial dose of compost or manure can break down and be used up by plants. The natural way is to have a slow, steady dose of compost making its way into the soil from the surface — either leaf litter or a layer of composty goodness or your wood chips slowly breaking down

and adding organic matter to the soil. This keeps the earthworms and soil microbes happily chomping away and creating free fertilizer for you, keeps the soil aerated and crumbly from all that happy earthworm wriggling, and keeps the soil cool and able to hold moisture. 4. Plant roots grow on top. Plants like to grow in happy mulchy stuff. You put happy mulchy stuff on top of your landscape fabric to hide it and keep it from degrading in the sunshine. Your plants send out roots on top of the fabric into the mulch, and then can’t find their way into the soil because there’s this crazy barrier blocking them. This makes your plants less tolerant of drought and stress, makes them more dependent on you to water because their feeder roots aren’t plugged into the damp depths of the soil, and makes it harder for them to extract nutrients from the soil because so many of their roots aren’t actually in the soil. This is even sadder when you rip up your landscape fabric in 10 years, which you will because by that time it will no longer be functioning as a weed barrier (stuff only lasts so long). You’ll be inadvertently ripping out all kinds of plant roots entangled with the fabric. 5. The fabric is butt-ugly, and you will know this because a stiff wind will blow the mulch off. The landscape fabric will become exposed anyplace where you didn’t smooth the soil below thoroughly enough, or where you have too steep a slope, or if there are whooshing ornamental grasses that brush back and forth against the ground in the wind. Sprinting dogs, digging cats, kids and heavy rains can all expose your landscape fabric. And a black plasticky moonscape is exactly what we dream of when envisioning our ideal garden, riiight? 6. If you get behind on your weeding, it’s a nightmare. So, it’s supposed to cut down on your weeding time, right? And it sort of does, for the first year or so when the weeds in the top of your soil would have all been sprouting. Beyond that, you’re weeding the same amount you would have otherwise, and if you get behind, watch out! Once the weeds’ roots get entangled in the fabric, it’s very hard to remove them effectively. The weeds’ roots firmly grip the threads in the landscape fabric so that all you can do is rip their tops off. Fun times. In addition, you need to put wood mulch on top of the fabric to prevent the sun from degrading it, but wood mulch does break down into compost in time. That means in five years, you essentially have a layer of delicious growing medium on top of your fabric for weed roots to sprout in. What was the point of landscape fabric again?

7. It’s a petroleum product. Yuck! I’m not some kind of “plastics must die” purist. Some of my favorite gardening tools have plastic handles or plastic parts. But if we can avoid supporting the petrochemical industry by saving ourselves labor and doing something great for our gardens, then that’s just another benefit in the “no landscape fabric” checklist. I won’t even get into what chemicals it might be releasing into the soil. 8. It’s expensive and time-consuming to install. At about 50 cents per square foot, plus 12 cents a pin, those square feet add up fast. The installation rates about a two on the “damn it” scale — you’ll probably only let fly with a couple of expletives while putting the stuff down. But it will take up your afternoon and make any future planting a “damn it”-worthy task in itself. 9. It limits your flexibility. You know how so much of gardening seems to be planting something and figuring if it doesn’t do great you’ll try it someplace else? Or shifting plants a couple feet to the right when they overgrow your pathway? It’s a process of experimentation, at least for most of us. And it’s not an easy process with landscape fabric. Dig up, sweep soil off fabric, patch fabric, cut new hole, dig hole, plant new plant, sweep soil off fabric and smooth soil perfectly again, re-pin everything, move mulch back. Whew! I’m ready for a nap. 10. Goodbye love-in-a-mist, cerinthe, and surprise volunteers. Your reseeding annuals won’t come up where there’s landscape fabric, or if they do, they’ll fail rather suddenly just before bloom because they can’t get their roots into the soil. Like to do annuals or casually tuck in bulbs each fall? No planting decision is casual with landscape fabric down, and if you do cut a hole in the fabric for some bulbs, you better hope the gophers don’t push them around. I’ve seen bulbs pushed a foot or two off the mark and try to come up from under the fabric. Very sad indeed. So what’s your alternative? Well, briefly, use a shedload of mulch! Good, weed-free wood chip mulch — a nice thick 3- to 4-inch layer of it — keeps any weed seeds on the soil surface from sprouting. It breaks down slowly, adding a little something to the soil as it goes, and you can always rake it to the side to plant or allow re-seeders to spread. l Genevieve Schmidt has written for Fine Gardening Magazine, Garden Design Magazine and other publications.

Polo for the People By Josephine Johnson


t 6:30 on a warm Wednesday evening, the Humboldt Hard Court Bike Polo crew adjusts helmets, tightens shin guards and makes sure mallets and bikes are tuned for friendly competition atop faded tennis courts in Eureka’s Highland Park. Laughter peppers the crew’s pregame safety check, and the setting sun lights up late-summer clouds punch orange and ruby red. The court quiets. Three players on each side wait behind their goal posts. After a quick countdown, both teams charge toward the center in a joust for control of the ball. Game on! Players score by shooting the ball into goals at either end of the court, and the first team to make five goals wins the match. Then the players rotate, and a new game begins. “The game should end at five points, but if the ball is moving and we’re in the flow, we’ll keep playing,” says Francis Rain, who has been instrumental in getting the

word out about Humboldt’s hard court bike polo action. Rain insists bike polo is more about working together and having fun than having an ultimate team winner at the end of the night. “We’re out here to have a safe and good time,” he says. Bike polo took form in 1891 on grass fields with wooden mallets. Today’s game, which traces its origins to Seattle circa 1999, is grittier and more urban — it’s played on old tennis courts or asphalt, and the mallets are DIY inventions like repurposed ski poles and PVC pipe. The idea for a bike polo club here in Humboldt came about three years ago when Rain and Stella Clark were working at Henderson Center Bicycles. Clark had worked in bike shops in Portland and Oakland, and she was familiar with the polo scene in those cities. She knew it was a good time and that the sport needed to be played in Humboldt. Rain, a bike enthusiast and gear head, quickly became

enamored of the sport. A self-proclaimed “bike polo nerd,” he not only bought armloads of second-hand ski poles for working out mallet design ideas, but began tinkering with polo bike customization. Together, Rain and Clark set upon making solidly constructed polo bikes. “Steering and gearing,” says Rain, “that’s what you’re thinking when you’re building a bike for this sport.” A low-geared or single-geared bike and shorter handlebars are ideal for maneuverability — smooth turning, accelerating and stopping on the court. So, maybe you like the idea of balancing on two wheels, steering with one hand and swinging a mallet in the other. And maybe you like the idea of doing this, or learning how, with friendly locals. But you don’t have a bike. What to do? Don’t despair! When she isn’t working on bicycles at Sport and Cycle, you can find Stella Clark at the Community Bike Kitchen in Eureka’s Jefferson Community Center.

And yeah, she’s building bikes there. For $50 to $80, Clark and her team at the Kitchen can help you customize your very own polo bike. The Community Bike Kitchen, by the way, has been open since June and has outfitted the community with just over 60 bikes, some of them polo bikes. Is $50 too much? You can also volunteer at the Bike Kitchen to work off some of the cost of building the bike you want. “If someone is interested in playing polo,” says Clark, “we don’t want to turn them away.” Clark and crew have loaner polo bikes available for people wanting to try out the sport. It’s important, she says, because getting involved in the sport helps more people learn about bikes both for transportation and recreation. The club is active. It meets every Wednesday, usually in Eureka, and plays as many games as possible before dark. Sometimes members play on Saturday afternoons or host a good ol’ community bike ride that leaves from the Old Town Gazebo. Most exciting upcoming events? The club is talking with Old Town C Street businesses about hosting a bike polo exhibition during February Arts Alive! in Eureka. The crew is also working out details with Redwood Roller Derby for a half-time exhibition during a bout next season. Sound good? Bike on. Get in touch with club member Daryl at 541-531-6671, email daryl_witmore@, or look the club up on Facebook to find out where it’s playing next Wednesday. You can see some action footage, too, at Check it. l If you would like to write a Get Out! Column, please email Journal editor Carrie Peyton Dahlberg at continued on next page

Hey, McGUinty!

The Cad, the Roommate and the Great Boss

The Journal’s Cocktail Compass app is coming soon!

By Jess McGuinty


ey McGuinty!

How can I tell a great boss and organization that I have been offered an amazing job and will be moving to the state Capitol? — Moving On Up MOVING ON UP! Congrats on being offered a job while still having one! I don’t often suggest playing the lottery, but damn, you might try that too because clearly Everything’s Comin’ Up You right now. Have you seen the job market out there?! I’m sure your unemployed friends are like “Tell me more about your ‘problems,’ jerk-face.” Put it in a letter. Tell your kick-ass boss how much you’ve enjoyed working there and how difficult the decision was to move on. (Even if it wasn’t. White lies like this won’t land you a spot in hell.) Offer to help train your replacement and then — this is key — make good on that promise. Leave some detailed notes for the next person in your chair. You’ll guarantee yourself not only a betterthan-Costco cake at your going away party (heeeyyy, Ramone’s), but the good vibes that come from not screwing over good people. That’s better than cake any day.

Hey McGuinty!

What are some good ways to find a roommate? Online, word of mouth, etc? What characteristics should I ask about? — Seeking Peaceful Co-Existence SEEKING PEACEFUL CO-EXISTENCE! As college freshmen, my roommate and I were besties. For the first month. Six weeks in, we were crying in the RA’s office begging for room changes because we couldn’t stand each other anymore. In my early 20s, I lived with a

girl who I had to physically restrain while I waited for the ambulance to take her to the psychiatric ward. I vowed then, as I held her and begged “just let me hug you,” that I’d never have a non-romantic partner roommate again. So yeah, you need to do your due diligence. I can’t tell you what characteristics to ask about, because I don’t know you. Do you want someone who’ll hang out and watch movies with you every night, or does that sound stifling? Do you want someone who keeps to himself in his room, or does that sound lonely? You see where I’m going with this? First determine what you want in a home life, and then you can write your ad or begin putting the word out to friends. When it comes to online vs. word of mouth, I’d say approach it like dating. If it feels weird to be “shopping” among a bunch of strangers online, stick to word of mouth. If you think being “set up” by your friends could end in disaster, then online is the way to go. Know yourself and your own comfort zone. And there, my friend, is where the dating analogy ends. Do. Not. Date. Your. Roommate, m’kay? In fact, only bunk up with a person you could never ever possibly be attracted to romantically. Otherwise, you could become my most frequent letter writer.

Hey McGuinty!

I am madly in love with someone and I don’t think he feels the same. He sees me any time he wants to, not on my terms. But any day he wants to see me is always a happy day for me. Even though I want more of him, I’ve learned to be content with the way things are because I don’t want to lose him. My heart breaks every time I think about him. If he doesn’t call, I can’t sleep. I wonder what he’s up to, if he’s with another girl. Please, I need you to help me. — Taisho

TAISHO! You say you’ve “learned to be content” with the way things are with this guy, but that your heart breaks because you can’t really have him. In my experience, when my heart is breaking, I’m not happy. I hate to tell you this, but you’re not, in fact, content. Actually, you sound pretty miserable. Why are you so hell-bent on “not losing” a guy you don’t really have in the first place? I believe you that you love him. At its best, love makes you feel like blowing kisses at the jerk who cuts you off in traffic. At its worst, it makes you feel, well, like you feel now. Terrible. This guy is getting way more of your mental energy than he deserves. I’m not going to assume he’s an asshole because he might not be, if you haven’t had any discussions about where you stand, if you’re exclusive, etc. So have that conversation. Now. Explain that you really like him, but if you’re going to continue seeing each other, you need to know what’s up. Does he just want to fool around sometimes, or does he see a possibility of a real relationship? If he just wants to keep going the way you’ve been, you say, “Well, that’s not working for me, so this is where I say thank you and farewell.” And then you stick to that. As long as this guy is taking up space in your heart but not meeting your needs, there’s no room in there for the other guy who will reciprocate your feelings. The one who makes you want to blow kisses at the jerk who cuts you off in traffic. Make room in your heart for that guy, Taisho. ●

Pesto Goes Rogue Open up to the possibilities of pesto. Photo by jennifer fumiko cahill

By Jada Brotman


or years I resisted developments in pesto. A purist, I was suspicious of change and, frankly, hostile towards new-fangled assumptions that the perfection of basil pesto should be tampered with. Even the phrase “basil pesto” still makes me cringe a little; it’s redundant! Alas, relentless onslaughts from

Nigella Lawson and Fine Cooking Magazine have beaten me down. Pesto is no longer just that hallowed combination of basil, pine nuts, Parmesan and olive oil. It means garlic scapes, roasted red peppers and almonds. Practically anything that can be whizzed up into a nubby paste has the pesto moniker slapped gleefully on. Pri-

26 North Coast Journal • Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013 •

vately, I mourn for the Genovese, but the fact is pesto can be, well, not improved, but tinkered with. My father was first to point out to me that walnuts are an excellent —and cheaper — substitute for pine nuts, which are the gold bullion of Nut Town. Neither walnuts nor the other nuts I’ve tried are better than pine nuts, but they’re different and often just as good. Pecorino Romano is less than half the price of Parmesan, and in combination with garlic (which I refuse to make any pesto without) the difference in flavor is negligible. The oil, however, is not be skimped on; good quality extra virgin olive oil is paramount. The basic appeal of pesto is raw garlic ameliorated by the fat of nuts, cheese and oil. Basil, with its sharp anise-like flavor,

is the ideal partner, but other flavors can jive along well. People love cilantro pestos, and both parsley and tarragon are awesome. Many herbs become too bitter if used in handfuls, so taste first and see if you need to thin your herbs with spinach. For instance, sage pesto is great on grilled chicken, but I’d use 1 part sage leaves to 1 part parsley and 2 parts spinach. Need I mention that pesto goes far beyond pasta? As Quiznos has taught the Midwest, pesto is great on a turkey sandwich. Tomatoes can be stuffed with pesto and breadcrumbs, squash can be slathered, soup can be dolloped and chicken and fish can be schmeered. Think of the colds you’re defeating with all that raw garlic! Just don’t go to a crowded show right after dinner. Trust me.

Jada’s Carrot Pesto Makes about a cup.

Ingredients and method: 1 large carrot, peeled and grated 1 large clove of garlic, peeled and chopped ½ teaspoon salt (I use more, but I like things salty) 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil 1/3 cup grated Pecorino or Parmesan cheese ¼ cup walnuts ¼ cup almonds A small handful of chopped fresh tarragon or dill, or ½ teaspoon fresh minced ginger ½ teaspoon lemon juice ½ teaspoon sugar ¼ cup water Toast the nuts in a toaster oven at 350 F till the aroma wafts but before they brown. Watch ‘em carefully. In a food processor, blend the carrot, garlic and salt, pulsing and scraping down the sides. You want a fine mincing, not a mush. Add the nuts and repeat. Add the cheese, lemon juice and sugar, and pulse a few times more. Drizzle in the oil and water between pulsing. Taste and add salt if needed.

Darius’ Parsley and Walnut Pesto Makes about a cup.

Ingredients and method: ½ cup walnuts, toasted (see above) A large handful of parsley, stems removed, chopped 3-4 small cloves garlic ½ teaspoon salt 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil 1/3 cup cheese — Parmesan and/or Asiago cheese, finely grated (not shredded) If you’re lazy like me, you can do this in a food processor, but my pop mashes it with a mortar and pestle, and the texture is better. Pound the garlic and salt into mush. Add in parsley and pound. Ditto the walnuts. Stir in the cheese and oil. Taste for salt.

Calypso’s Red Pepper and Macadamia Pesto Makes about a cup.

Ingredients and method: 1 large roasted red pepper, peeled and chopped 1 large clove of garlic, peeled and chopped ½ teaspoon salt (or more to taste) 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil 1/3 cup grated Pecorino or Parmesan cheese 1 heaping teaspoon tomato paste ½ cup chopped toasted macadamia nuts


In a food processor, pulse salt, garlic and red pepper. Scrape down the sides, add tomato paste and pulse till combined. Add the nuts and pulse till they’re minced. Add the oil and cheese and pulse again. If the mixture is too thick, add ¼ cup water and pulse. ●

Best Foot Forward

Follow your feet into Saturday night By Jennifer Savage


he biggest deal in Humboldt this weekend is, of course, the North Country Fair. Be sure to check out the full fair schedule in the calendar. Now, look at your feet. What’s on them shoe-wise? Let’s use that information to figure out what you’re doing Saturday night.

Post-apocalpytic folk genius

Boots caked with farm dirt? Then it’s John Craigie at the Arcata Playhouse for you. Excellent choice. Craigie has shared various stages over the past decade with

folk luminaries including Todd Snider, Paul Thorn, Zach Gill, Brett Dennen, Shook Twins and Trampled by Turtles. According to the press release, he’s best known for his storytelling, but even the most cursory listen reveals how his songs exist as stories on their own. Craigie’s eighth and most recent album, The Apocalypse is Over, combines the music and spirit of New Orleans with a Woody Guthrie sensibility in such a way as to transport listeners from life in the French Quarter with “Preservation Hall” to Van Gogh’s descent into madness in the south of France with “Rachel” to the lonely life of a musician on the road in “We Ain’t Leavin’ this Bar, Patrick (Till We

Find You Some Love).” He also happens to have some rather foxy press photos. To tout a bit more talent-by-association cred, Craigie’s collaborators on The Apocalypse is Over include Steve Adams, co-founder of Animal Liberation Orchestra, on bass and Randy Schwartz, formerly with Brett Dennen, on drums. Craigie would work his way into your heart on his own, but the Playhouse gig has the added bonus of some of Humboldt’s own stars, including members of River Valley Mud, Motherlode, The Trouble and Moon Pine. Playhouse doors open at 7 p.m., show starts at 8 p.m., tickets are $12 general, $10 Arcata Playhouse/Humboldt Folklife Society members, $7 students and available at Wildberries Marketplace and through

Soul meets body

Back to the shoes. Are they stylish, shined up and ready for the dance floor? Then we know the place for you. Soul Night! Despite rumors to the contrary, the soul has not left the body and will be shaking it all Saturday night starting at 9 p.m. at Hum Brews for $5. In fact, DJs Matt and Adam plan to squeeze into their respective tights for an evening of Superpowered Soul. Dress as your favorite hero or villain for a night of caped — or uncaped per The Incredibles — craziness.

Docs? Chucks? Then it’s off to the Alibi, where Humboldt Free Radio presents beloved Humboldt Weezer tribute band Wepeel in their one-and-only 2013 show, along with Arcata indie-poppers Dolphin Star Temple Mystery School. DSTMS’s Facebook page lacks shine, but the band’s sound rollicks along with suitable aggressiveness. Music starts around 11:15 p.m., the door guy’ll start hitting you up for $5 around 10:30 p.m. and you’ll have to be 21 or over to be there.

Birkenstocks? Cowboy boots? Hope you’re ready for some midweek action because The Bills are coming to the Arcata Playhouse on Tuesday, Sept. 24 and Wednesday, Sept. 25. This brilliant quintet hails from the West Coast of Canada, where they’ve won multiple music awards

and fans devoted to what’s described as “innovative interpretations of traditional tunes.” Think instrumental expertise, opulent vocal arrangements, boisterous live performances and memorable songwriting. Claiming musical inspiration from a range of North American traditions, European stylings, rhythms of Latin America and melodies of the wandering Romany peoples, The Bills transcend easy definition. Should be a fantastic show. Aspiring musicians take note — The Bills also teach a workshop Wednesday, Sept. 25. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. with show time at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12 general, $10 members and are available at Wildwood Music, Wildberries Market, The Works or online at For more info, visit or call 822-1575 for reservations.

You cultured person, you. What a lovely evening awaits when Chinese musician and teacher Zhu De-Hai and HSU pianist Daniela Mineva explore contrasts and common ground in western and traditional Chinese music at the Van Duzer Theatre. De-Hai, a Bejing native, attended the Xi’an Music Conservatory College and has taught and performed regularly in China. He’s also director of art and performance for a Chinese regional university’s music college. His program at HSU includes Chinese songs as well as familiar western melodies. The show begins at 8 p.m., tickets are $10 general, $5 students and seniors, and available from the HSU Box Office at 8263928, as well as at the door. More info at

Come on Down! Cleveland will be in the house when game show host and improve impresario Drew Carey stands up at the Van Duzer Friday night at 8 p.m. ($45 or $15 for HSU students). In the years since Whose Line is it Anyway? and The Drew Carey Show, he’s trimmed down and lost the high-and-tight, but he’s still funny as ever on the fly. If you haven’t seen his classic improv comedy show, you need to YouTube it now. He’s also taken unscripted comedy to the next level with green screens and bravely come out as a soccer fan. Carey’s everyman-Ohio vibe is downright exotic in these parts, and he is master of a kind of upbeat self-deprecation that might only grow in the Midwest. In an example of perfect casting, he’s been working the wheel over at The Price is Right ever since Bob Barker retired in 2007, cracking up contestants (and himself) on occasion. Just don’t expect him to be quite so wholesome in his standup act. (See The Aristocrats.) And don’t forget to have your pets spayed or neutered. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

North Country Therapy Right now, a small, grumpy and unpleasantly practical cluster of synapses in your brain is thinking about skipping the North Country Fair this year. It’s too crowded, parking is crazy and we have errands to do, it whines. Don’t listen. Your brain is not in possession of all the facts. For one thing, Saturday kicks off the 40th annual fair, so the Same Old People are blowing it up. The vendor list tops 200, including arts and crafts, clothing and tasty food. You have to eat, right? Sure, you could pick up groceries like you do every other weekend, or you could get your leafy greens at the farmers market just off the plaza and turn this thing into a party. Exotic festival stalls trump tragic supermarket pizza. Stay for the Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir at 11:30 a.m. and the Samba parade at 1 p.m. with Samba da Alegria — the BeDazzled and feathered drumming and dancing troupe that turns Arcata into sunny Rio. You can run home and do yard work right after that. Or you could stay for the baker’s dozen of music and dance acts on three stages — Grateful Dead tunes, soul, rock, marimbas and belly dancing. Oh, you have a thing you can’t get out of on Saturday? Fine. Sunday is your second chance. Swap in the All Species Parade at 1 p.m. (all species, but no dogs — go figure) with masked members of our community letting their freak flags fly. Really, couldn’t your banner use a little waving? Spread out a blanket and settle in for another three stages of all-day dancers and music. It’s good for the brain. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

A Good Scare The sequel to Insidious delivers the creepy By John J. Bennett


OUT AND ABOUT? Restaurants, Music, Events, Movie Times, Arts Listings, Blogs

It’s all there.



NSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2. So, I’ve been developing a program to scare the shit out of myself. I start by waking up to a sunny day with a head full of last night’s whiskey fumes. I supplement this discomfort with several cups of dangerously hot, coal-black coffee. Then, with my heart rate spiked, my paranoia roaring, my skin feeling tight like the cover of a baseball, I go watch a James Wan matinee. I’ve applied this method three times, and it is 100 percent effective. Without exception, it has allowed me to temporarily alter crucial aspects of the real world, rendering it completely terrifying. Although my careless consumption of stimulants is certainly an important element here, most of the credit should go to Mr. Wan, who continues his streak of compact, purposeful ghost stories with Insidious: Chapter 2. The story picks up shortly after the events of Insidious (2010), wherein Josh and Renai Lambert (Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne) are confronted by the existence of a world beyond the tangible one, a world populated exclusively by very bad things. After that harrowing experi-

ence, the family holes up at Josh’s mom’s house for some much-needed rest. But such is not their lot in life; they’re in for many more sleepless nights and lots more screaming. As with any decent horror/suspense movie, I can’t reveal much more plot without ruining some of the fun. Suffice it to say that Chapter 2 is most definitely of a piece with the first installment, and feels more like a continuation of that narrative than a follow-up. It is as scary and satisfying as the previous movie, maybe even a little more refined visually and structurally. As someone who, until very recently, had almost no interest in the horror genre, it is no small thing to admire James Wan’s work as much as I do. He has a distinct, rich visual style, a talent for drawing naturalistic performances out of his cast and deadly timing. He’s building a truly impressive body of work and racking up major profits while he does it. Insidious: Chapter 2 only cost $5 million to make, and it had already made over $40 million by Sunday afternoon. Maybe Hollywood isn’t circling the drain, after all. PG13. 106m. THE FAMILY. But then again, Hollywood still insists on churning out bloated,

MovieTimes pointless garbage like this. Coming from Luc Besson, a writer-director I once greatly admired (Leon: The Professional and The Fifth Element still hold up) it feels even more insulting. Mobster turned snitch Giovanni Manzoni (Robert DeNiro), his deep-Brooklyn wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer) and their kids are in witness protection (in France, for no good reason). Because they’re constantly making trouble and raising their own profile, their FBI minder (Tommy Lee Jones) constantly has to uproot them. This time they’ve landed in small-town Normandy, and it’s fish out of water time. The locals are all provincial caricatures spouting off ugly-Americanisms, and the Manzonis respond with insane violence. The prospect of discovery and assassination looms, but Giovanni decides to write his memoirs while he’s not beating people or working on town water-quality problems. And the 17-year-old daughter falls in unrequited love. This thing starts misfiring as soon as it leaves the garage and never smooths out. The tone is uneven, the comedy doesn’t work and the violence is both inappropriate and banal. Nothing original, noteworthy or surprising happens at all. The leads all give convincing performances, but these characters are beneath professionals of such caliber. Besson seems to have forgotten all the techniques and style elements that helped him make fun and interesting movies. Because this is neither. R. 112m. — John J. Bennett

Previews PRISONERS. Hugh Jackman is a father who goes off the rails on the hunt for his missing daughter and her friend, while Jake Gyllenhaall investigates. R. 153m.

The Cuckoo’s Calling

Robert Galbraith, aka J.K. Rowling, Mulholland Books By now, you’ve probably heard that Robert Galbraith, the author of The Cuckoo’s Calling, is really J.K. Rowling. Given how recently Rowling’s Harry Potter follow-up, The Casual Vacancy, was released under her real name, it’s strange that she would write under a pseudonym. Or maybe not. Like the story’s cold body, Lula Landry, Rowling knows the painful irony of fame: It gives you new freedoms as it slowly strips your old freedoms away. The Cuckoo’s Calling is, despite all the modern flair, a classic detective story in the vein of Raymond Chandler, and just as good, too. Our PI hero, Cormoran Strike, is a broken man, both literally and metaphorically. The case opens with Strike having walked out on the best relationship he’s ever had, a woman named Charlotte who cared for him as he recovered from losing his leg in Afghanistan. Cormoran Strike He also has one heck of a name. Perhaps sounds like that was the first he should be tip-off that Rowling investigating was the actual author. over at the Cormoran Strike sounds like he should Ministry be investigating over of Magic. at the Ministry of Magic. Along for the ride is Robin Ellacott, a 25-year-old temp who’s always secretly wanted to be a detective. The story rolls off the page effortlessly — it’s a wonder Rowling didn’t start with mystery novels. Strike is a fully realized character the moment he literally bursts onto the scene. His life isn’t told to the reader as much as it is revealed, the same way you would learn about a friend over time. Rowling judges her characters in the narration, and it allows her to forgo the usual first-person perspective of detective novels. As Robin and Strike encounter the shady suspects in Lula’s murder, Rowling rips into her characters happily. Even if someone is cleared of the crime, Rowling makes it clear that few are innocent. The story does suffer from being a little clichéd. Rowling isn’t breaking new ground, and she saves the cleverness for presentation, as opposed to the story itself. But when the trip is so engrossing, the reader won’t mind having been to this destination before. — Trevor Reece • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, SEPT. 19, 2013

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.

A Funny Thing Happened to Pi ... ... on the way to its 10 trillionth digit By Barry Evans


he history of pi, or π (= 3.1416 ...) the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circle, is in some (very rough) way the history of mathematics, starting with the empirical age of math. Four thousand years ago, the only way to get a value for π was to physically measure it, that is, see how many times a diameterlength rope fits aound a circle’s circumference. Three-and-a-bit? Close enough back then. Around 2000 BC, the ancient Egyptians were using a value of 256/81 (= 3.1604 ...) which they derived by assuming a circle with diameter 9 units has the same area as an 8 x 8 square. Which is better than exactly 3, as implied in the Old Testament (1 Kings 7:23). Around 250 B.C., Archimedes of Syracuse first figured out how to calculate π using the geometry of regular polygons. He noted that the circumference of a circle lies between the perimeter lengths of its inscribed and circumscribed polygons (see diagram). With enormous effort, working with a 96-sided polygon (!), he showed that π lies between 3 10/71 and 3 1/7 (averaging to 3.1419 ...). Archimedes’ method was still being used in Europe in the 1600s, with very little improvement in accuracy. The next big step for mathematics — and for the calculation of π — probably originated in the south of India around 1400, with the discovery of the infinite series by Madhava of Sangamagrama. While infinity had scared off earlier mathematicians, Madhava (and 270 years later Scotsman James Gregory and German Gottfried von Leibniz) independently showed how to calculate π to any desired degree of accuracy by repeated application of a simple but infinite for-

mula (π /4 = 1 - 1/3 + 1/5 - 1/7 ...). Sounds great, except figuring this out to half a million terms yields but five decimal places of accuracy. In 1706, English astronomer John Machin improved on the Madhava-Gregory-Liebniz discovery: same idea, much better formula. I’m particularly partial to Machin’s formula because it’s incorporated into the 99-cent “PiAcademic” app. With it, I can compute (I use the word loosely!) the first 65,000 decimal digits of π in 18 seconds on my iPad. Just 30 years ago (still paralleling the general evolution of mathematics) Machin-type π formulae gave way to iterative algorithms, in which the same function is applied to successive iterations: each iteration yields a closer approximation to π than the previous value. Common to all these schemes, from Archimedes onwards, is that knowing, say, the millionth digit of π, requires knowing the previous 999,999 digits. Makes sense, right? Not to Quebecois mathematician Simon Plouffe, who figured out a “spigot formula” for π in 1995 (so called because it calculates a single isolated digit, like focusing on a single drip from a faucet rather than the entire flow). If you’d told previous π calculators that it was possible to calculate the ten trillionth digit of π knowing none of the previous digits, they’d have laughed at you. But that’s just what Plouffe showed the world of mathematics. It’s 0, by the way. ● Barry Evans ( is teaching The History and Mystery of Pi at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute on Oct. 31 and Nov. 7.
