Editor: Barry Evans’ essay “Happiness? Forget it” in the Sept. 12 Journal cites “evolutionary philosophy” as saying that “our genes don’t give a rat’s backside whether we’re happy or not.” True enough, if our worldview has taken up permanent residence somewhere in the region of the amygdala, a place where kill-or-be-killed, “run away, run away” bells are ringing regularly. But our brains are more than just repositories of the results of countless wellpracticed fight or flight reactions to the world in which we’ve lived for millennia. From brain stem (ancient) to prefrontal cortex (relatively recent), the human brain is a yet evolving and wondrous phenomenon of nature. Old processes ensuring survival are still very much at work within us, yes. However, our complex cortical tissue, built upon the many histories derived from simple reptilian awareness, is a living laboratory where we are offered vast and unknown potentialities of experience. Certainly, there is no guarantee that our species will survive its foolish and primitive behaviors (wars, etc.). Deservedly, we may disappear into extinction. Nonetheless, the very existence of the human brain is an astonishing improbability. That a three pound sack of chemical soup and neuronal sparking can conceive the very idea of “happiness” is itself a profound cause for much jubilation! From moment to moment, within every individual human being, ever-deepening gladness and gratitude are ours for the cortical choosing. Only when individuals so choose, may the species at large, perhaps, discover that happiness, however fleeting, is actually real. Jere Bob Bowden, Ferndale

Last week’s cover story, “Water’s for Fighting,” contained an error. Water claims for Trinity and Sacramento river waters exceed the available water seven and five times, respectively. ●
Our Sept. 12 cover story, “Main and Loleta,” incorrectly identified the ownership of certain parcels, inadvertently omitting some owners who have partnered with the van der Zee family. It also misspelled the name of one trust. According to the Humboldt County Assessor’s records: The parcel behind the green hedge is co-owned by the Zeedervan Family Limited Partnership trust (50 percent), Sean Wirth (25 percent) and his wife, Cynthia Garcia Wirth (25 percent); the parcel on which Blue Coach Antiques sits is co-owned by the Wirths (64.3 percent) and Peter van der Zee (35.7 percent); the parcel upon which the bakery, meat market and market sit is co-owned by Kathryn J. Kennedy (62 percent) and Peter van der Zee (38 percent). ●
The Way Summer Turned She starts slowly, Her hands, circling gestures, hinting to far off places: Familiar, In the way that long gone memories suddenly reappear, New and old, As the eyes of a newborn might tell. Her story moves, Along the lines of his sweaty brow: Furrows of dusty habits, streaked and stale. And his face: a worn vista of hope, A shell of the dances they once rehearsed. She conjures over sagging eyes, Rising to bright skies: That one window they have left, Where thirst and promise mingle On that one day the afternoon light hangs, Suddenly, still and unmoving. Their separation: a restless wait, But marked with patience, As he turns, fetching verses from a box of years, Stepping on the one plank, long gone warped and dry, Creaking, and sounding the first note Of a long song they will sing once again. — Sam A.

No Static at All
sity of Hawai’i at Manoa and here. OK, introduction done. So I’m inching through Pasadena traffic. Scanning, scanning. College station KSPC’s playing a throbbing Chrome, Liars, Gonjasufi mix. Not bad. I listen until the show ends and another student plays music from popular video games. Sigh. I’d already listened to three new albums by Regina Spektor, Xavier Rudd and Amanda Palmer three times each. I’d jammed through old playlists and used up my smart phone’s data allowance. Trinidad to Palm Springs is a hearty 12-hour drive, not counting rush-hour traffic. I want radio, and my expectations are higher these days. I’ve spent most of my adult years suffering from formats that endlessly repeat insipid songs that mindless zombies say they like when marketers call. Foreigner? Really? For the past few years, online music sites like LastFM and Pandora have enriched my music experience. Yet these sites deliver delicious music with bland indifference. No local voice describes aging munitions found in Eureka or reminds me that Andrew Bird is coming to town in November. When I moved to Humboldt a year ago, I discovered what radio could be. Owned by local investors, Lost Coast Communications controls four stations — KHUM, KSLG, The Point, KXGO — and the Lost Coast Outpost, a local news blog. If you’ve lived here long enough, you might take decent commercial radio for granted. Don’t. Humboldt’s “freeform” radio offers us something that folks living elsewhere don’t have.
nd on the radio you hear “November Rain” / That solo’s awful long but it’s a good refrain / You listen to it twice cuz the DJ is asleep / On the radio.” — Regina Spektor
Scanning the airwaves between Los Angeles and San Bernardino. Nothing interesting. A classic rock station’s playing Foreigner’s “Double Vision.” A couple others are looping Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” every five or six minutes. I abdicate my perceived right to new music and belt out the refrain. “She’s up all night till the dawn! I’m up all night to get some!” Yawn. Ke$ha. Ho-hum. Katie Perry. My eyelids are getting heavy, heavy. A classic rock station’s playing Boston but I have less than a feeling. What I wouldn’t give for a familiar Humboldt radio voice right now. Hometown radio-sans-rules KHUM would be playing its funky eclectic mix and giving away a Lumineers CD to the person who names the only U.S. state included in an AKC registered dog breed. Wait. Before I write anything else, I’d like to ’fess up to not being longtime Media Maven Marcy Burstiner, who’s my boss at Humboldt State. She’s in Spain through Christmas.

“There’s more good music now than ever before in history,” says Cliff Berkowitz, who fled L.A. in the 1990s to do his own kind of radio here. “But where are we going to listen to it?” Days after my trip, back home in the fog, Berkowitz is playing Gin Wigmore’s “Devil in Me.” He began a 6 a.m. set with They Might Be Giants, played Cat Empire, Nina Simone and Suzanne Vega. Humboldt radio can be different than L.A. radio because we’re invisible, as commercial markets go. Eureka’s TV audience barely manages to rate a spot on the Nielsen Designated Market Area ratings. It’s No. 194 of 200, barely edging ahead of Mankato, Minn., and Lima, Ohio. Eureka’s not even listed as a radio market. Neither is Arcata, let alone the itty village of Ferndale, home to Lost Coast Communications. If radio rankings went low enough, Humboldt might be about No. 230, Berkowitz says. (L.A. is No. 2, second to New York City.) Berkowitz, a DJ who’d worked in San Francisco and L.A., and wife Amy fell in love with Humboldt during visits in the 1970s and 1980s. On one trip, they had an epiphany in a grocery store parking lot. “Wouldn’t it be great to do freeform radio here — and we could call it KHUM or something?” Cliff Berkowitz recalls. Purely hypothetical. Possible retirement plan. By the 1990s, enough had changed in the radio game that Berkowitz wanted out. “All the fun was being squeezed out of radio,” Berkowitz said. “And it’s gotten way worse.” The couple moved here. Money was cobbled together. A small business loan was acquired to buy a radio station. Freeform radio was born. In Humboldt. Across the rest of the nation, the 1996 Telecommunications Act paved the way more than 1,000 radio firm mergers in less than two years. Before you could hum REM’s “End of the World,” three compa-
nies controlled 80 percent of ad revenues in the top radio markets. Revolution brought less variety to listeners. Stations bought by giant corporations don’t operate in the public interest, Berkowitz says. “It’s a commodity to them.” Not so here. This month, KHUM did live remote broadcasts for a week to support the Friends of the Dunes. Public affairs features include last year’s documentary on marijuana growers and regular features like Coastal Currents, an environmental show that airs Wednesdays. Is there freeform hope for the rest of the nation? Promising signs exist. Radio’s reptilian monstrosity with more than 800 stations, Clear Channel Communications, has sold off a couple hundred stations in the past few years. After firing nearly all its employees in an attempt to juice radio for maximum profits, its stations are now run by one frizzy wigged robotic lizard in a San Antonio, Texas, broom closet. That’s who/ what does Rush Limbaugh’s voice and picks the music. In 2008, Clear Channel’s ownership transferred to capital investment firms Thomas H. Lee and Bain Capital. In 2012, Clear Channel reported losses of $424 million. Dinosaurs will surely die. “We could be on the cusp of a renaissance,” suggests Berkowitz, “with people who care about radio buying up the small stations.” I’d stay up all night to get that lucky.

Ganja Capitalism By Ryan Burns

he pharmacy bottles pictured above are part of a collection of old cannabis-industry flotsam that belongs to “an unofficial historian in Mendocino County.” A slideshow of the collection recently appeared on High Times online, and the post should prove enlightening to anyone who considers medical marijuana a recent invention. One photo shows tall, green tins — like old loose-leaf tea canisters — labeled “Cannabis Sativa” and “Cannabis Indica.” They’re emblazoned with the logo for Parke-Davis, once America’s largest drug maker (now a subsidiary of Pfizer). The old labels run the gamut: tinctures, extracts, elixirs — all bottled for sale to the American consumer of yore. It wasn’t just cannabis, either. As documentarian Eugene Jarecki shows in his enlightening and provocative documentary The House I Live In (recently released on DVD and online streaming services), cocaine, heroin, opium and other drugs were once marketed and sold to genteel American housewives as balms for a wide variety of maladies. And addiction and abuse were seen as public health issues rather than crimes. As Jarecki’s film shows, America’s change in approach had more to do with xenophobia than anything else. But let’s not get into all of that. For now it’s just worth remembering that the crazy cannabis concoctions being sold here in 2013 — the pot-laced gummy bears, sodas, chocolate bars and Baklava — are part of a long history of ganja capitalism. • Speaking of which, could there be a pot commercial during the next Super Bowl? Intuit, the software company
that makes Quicken and Quickbooks, recently launched an online contest to give one lucky small business a free, professionally produced ad during the big game. Businesses that receive the most online votes become finalists, and when pro-legalization group NORML launched a campaign, it quickly became a frontrunner (despite not being, you know, an actual business). Police officers in Michigan reportedly smelled marijuana in the car of a man they’d pulled over for a broken headlight. According to a police report, the man admitted to having weed on him, but officers couldn’t find any. Asked where it was, the man said he ate it. Yeah, he was arrested. Also in Michigan, dozens of people gathered to protest the case of a 6-monthold Lansing girl who was taken away from her parents following a complaint about pot in the house. The mom is a registered medical marijuana caregiver, but a family court referee ruled that marijuana made the family’s house inherently dangerous. According to local TV news, such rulings in the state are not rare. A Colorado radio host and Christian pastor named Kevin Swanson took to the airwaves last week to suggest that God sent the recent devastating floods to his state as commentary on marijuana legalization, abortion and “decadent homosexual activity.” And here we thought online comments were brutal. And finally, SoHum pot farmer/community leader Doug Green, who helped found the Mateel Community Center and Reggae on the River, died last weekend after a battle with cancer. •

Council again on the hunt for a new city manager By Grant Scott-Goforth email@example.com
stick,” Brady said. Experience and good credentials are big priorities for Councilmember Melinda Ciarabellini. And all five councilmembers agreed that they expect the next manager to carry out their newly crafted vision plan. “We pretty much agree on things we need to go forward with in the city,” said Councilmember Linda Atkins. That clarity will make a good recruitment tool, several council members said, and the plan will be included in the materials sent to applicants. While the vision plan hasn’t been finalized, it’s very close to completion, and its goals include: • Working with the county and Humboldt State University to lobby on behalf of the area, both in Sacramento and Washington. • Streamlining permit applications — particularly building permits — for the public by making the process available online. • Updating the city’s general plan. • Updating the city’s municipal code. While some councilmembers expressed disappointment at Panos’ early departure, they also relayed understanding, and relief at having Andrew Mills, a San Diego police captain, coming on board in November as Eureka’s new police chief. In Panos’ parting statement, he listed hiring a chief as one of the key accomplishments in his nine-month tenure. Panos also did some restructuring, folding the engineering department into public works and combining the building and community development departments. That didn’t please everyone in those departments, Atkins said, but it reflected what the council asked for. “He started some big changes in the city that caused some bumpiness with employees because of his reorganization plan.” While no one was fired, several department heads were “reassigned,” and city staff is still getting used to the changes. The shuffle was designed to cut costs for the city, Atkins said. l

empered disappointment and optimism. That’s the feeling du jour of some of Eureka’s elected officials, following Bill Panos’ short stint as city manager. And while it’s back to the drawing board for Eureka’s top position, at least this time the City Council goes into its manager hunt with a new top cop and a nearly completed “strategic vision plan” that will be part of the recruitment package. The council has asked its staff to hire the same search firm that found Panos and to conduct a broad search for the next city manager, a position that paid Panos $158,000 a year. (He’ll be earning $150,000 a year as the Wyoming schools facility director, according to the Associated Press.) City councilmembers say they hope to wrap up the search in three to four months, but in the meantime, Assistant City Manager Mike Knight will become interim city manager after Panos leaves on Oct. 4. Knight had been a contender for the job last year when previous City Manager David Tyson retired, but Panos was chosen instead. Knight said he will throw his hat in the ring again. “Keep in mind it will be very competitive,” Knight said. “There’s a lot of great city managers out there.” Councilmember Lance Madsen said he’ll be looking for a city manager who takes a broad scope of the city, who won’t overlook departments or let problems fall through the cracks. “Leadership,” said Councilmember Mike Newman. “As well as a good manager of people.” Councilmember Marian Brady said she wants a city manager with port and rail experience — she sees development of train and boat shipping as a potential economic boon. And she wants to hire a city manager who can work not only with staffers, but with residents, on city problems like cleaning up blight. “That’s part of the city manager’s job — to figure out what’s the carrot and what’s the

At last night’s general plan update hearing, the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors once again tinkered with the language of the update’s guiding principles, largely by blending the original language with new versions drafted in June by 2nd District Supervisor Estelle Fennell. Seven more principles remain to be discussed, and those seven contain some of Fennell’s more dramatic revisions. Those remaining principles are scheduled for discussion at the board’s next GPU meeting on Oct. 7. As reported by the Times-Standard, here are the new versions of the five principles discussed last night, with both the original versions and Fennell’s versions for comparison: First principle: Original version: Ensure that public policy is reflective of the needs of the citizenry as expressed by the citizens themselves. Fennell version: Ensure that public policy is reflective of the needs of the citizenry as expressed by the citizens. New version: Ensure that public policy is reflective of the needs of the citizenry of a democratic society as expressed by the citizens themselves. Second principle: Original version: Preserve and enhance the character of Humboldt County and the quality of life it offers. Fennell version: Preserve and enhance the diverse character of Humboldt County and the quality of life it offers. New version: Preserve and enhance the diverse character of Humboldt County and the quality of life it offers. Third principle: Original version: Provide sufficient developable land, encourage development of affordable housing for all income levels, and prevent housing scarcity under a variety of population growth scenarios. Fennell version: Promote and facilitate the creation of new housing opportunities to mitigate the decline in availability of affordable housing for all income levels. New version: Promote and facilitate the creation of affordable housing opportunities to meet current and future demands for all income levels. Note: 3rd District Supervisor Mark Lovelace was the lone supervisor to vote against this revision, telling the T-S
that the language “didn’t accurately capture the county’s role in development of housing, which is to provide sufficient developable land that is appropriately zoned.” Fourth principle: Original version: Ensure efficient use of water and sewer services and focus development in those areas and discourage low-density residential conversion of resource lands and open space.

Another week, another stream-threatening, tree-razing, trash-burning grow busted. This one, a couple miles east of South Fork High School, yielded more than 2,000 plants and no arrests. The Sheriff’s Office — joined by Cal Fire, Fish and Wildlife and the Drug Task Force — found unpermitted structures, filled-in water courses, grading, illegal burn piles and unprotected diesel tanks over a stream. From the Sheriff’s Office: Both diesel tanks did not have the required containment fields for spill protection as required by law. Both of the diesel tanks were directly over a stream which feeds into Elk Creek which is a coho salmon spawning habitat. The evidence of illegal burning is being forwarded to North Coast Unified Air Quality Management District by Cal Fire for additional charges due to evidence of plastic and other trash being burned in the burn pile. ● CRIME / BY GRANT SCOTT-GOFORTH / FRIDAY, SEPT. 20 AT 1:35 P.M.
Whopping Exotic Animal Parts Theft
Was someone looking to expand their trophy room? The Sheriff’s Office reports that someone broke into the Wildlife Museum in Willow Creek overnight and stole $750,000 worth of dead animal parts. Among the stolen items: two three-foot ivory elephant tusks, a mounted elk head, a bear skin rug and a kangaroo rug. Apparently someone pried open back doors to the museum, setting off an alarm. Sheriff’s deputies arrived at 5 a.m. There are no suspects, according to a press release. ● FOOD / BY JENNIFER FUMIKO CAHILL / THURSDAY, SEPT. 19 AT 4:28 P.M.

The Humboldt Beacon reports that the Food Network host is bringing his sunny smile and dark roots up to his hometown of Ferndale to film an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Any guesses as to where? ●

Arkley Draws Big Crowd to Talk about Homelessness
If Rob Arkley was looking to stir the pot when he proclaimed last week that the homeless have overrun Humboldt County and are living high on the hog thanks to all those public benefits available to them — well, mission accomplished. Hundreds packed into the Wharfinger Building last Wednesday evening to take part in the Eureka businessman’s community forum to address the homelessness “crisis.” On the front walkway, frustrated people jostled as police held them back, and one man briefly made a grab for the door before it closed. Several in the crowd shouted that they had RSVP’d, as requested, but the door monitors said that didn’t matter. The building was past capacity. Arkley started off the meeting by outlining his own plans. First, he wants to form a committee — no, he said, he doesn’t have to be the chair — which will put a microscope on the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services. The committee, he said, will tear apart the department’s budget, looking for the mandates, grants and obligations the county has to provide services to the homeless. And don’t worry, Phillip Crandall, Arkley understands that being the department head is a big job — the committee will just be looking to help. It will do that, he said, by identifying — he didn’t explain how — which programs are drawing the homeless to the area. From there, Arkley wants to see the committee put pressure on the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors. Specifically, he wants to see the board weigh each spending decision for its possible “negative impact” on the community. Lastly, Arkley wants the supes to vote on each action involving the homeless, one-by-one. Following that framework, Arkley said, he is confident that a year from now, Humboldt will be a better
place. We all just need to work together and cut out the fluff. “Too much right has become wrong. We’ve become an absolute magnet for the homeless unlike other communities.” Not everyone was quite on the same page. One woman suggested that Arkley “check his privilege.” Not all of us are rich, white males, she said. Her words were quickly drowned out by boos and jeers from the crowds, and for a moment it appeared that the meeting would dissolve into a giant shouting match before a moderator stepped in. Sylvia De Rooy was greeted with applause when she stepped up to the microphone and questioned Arkley’s facts. “Virtually every premise that Arkley has put forward is a false premise,” she said. Several business owners took the opportunity to voice their concerns. One woman said she was tired of cleaning up defecation off her front stoop. Another said he thought a neighboring soup kitchen was luring in the homeless and driving away his female clients. When you drive through Eureka on a Sunday, it looks like you are riding into a toilet, he said. Many who spoke at the forum did so over the noise of a screeching horn and the sound of banging drums from outside. Eureka Police Chief Murl Harpham later said that four protesters were arrested on suspicion of disturbing an assembly, resisting arrest and assault. Explaining the assault, Harpham said he was doused with a bottle of water in the melee. ●

Escapism, community and a good time out of time
By Jennifer Fumiko Cahill
he field beside Mad River Community Hospital is empty, with only a painted sign for the Dark Horse Tavern on the stable. But in a few days, it’ll be filled with tents and a tavern, populated by knights, knaves and a village of Vikings. Men and women will clash with swords and sticks, and jousters will, well, joust. Peasants and tradespeople will all be on hand to party like it’s 999. The Excalibur Medieval Tournament and Market Faire on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 28 and 29, benefits St. Bernard’s School, Mad River Adult Day Health Care and Redwood Horse Rescue. Unlike larger Renaissance fairs, it’s run by volunteers, people who just love doing things the really old fashioned way. Hard on its heels a week later comes the Medieval Festival of Courage in Blue Lake, which is a fundraiser for Coastal Grove Charter School, as well as several other area schools and nonprofits. Both are part of a 50-year-old move-
ment that takes European history, throws on some tights and turns it into a party. Renaissance and medieval fairs and festivals have been around since 1963, when the first Renaissance Pleasure Fair in the Hollywood Hills raised cash for a local NPR station. These days, similar festivals (Renaissance, medieval, fairy, pirate) number in the hundreds across the country, including the two in Humboldt. Most visitors come to watch demonstrations and shows, take a few snapshots and pick up a souvenir. For others, the fairs are the high point of a year-round hobby of costumes and role-play. So how do grownups — smart ones — end up playing dress up? According to Kimberly Tony Korol-Evans, author of Renaissance Festivals: Merrying the Past and Present, people get into the scene for very individual reasons. Some fall in love with the crafts, the clothes or the drama of the period. Plus, the fairs, festivals and societies also offer tremendous community.

People who come together to share the experience for only a few days a year can be very close without even learning each other’s real names. The half a dozen costumed volunteers rehearsing at the Excalibur festival site earlier this month entered this world — part history, part fantasy — through love of history, pageantry, escapism and hamming it up. They chalk up the enduring interest in all things medieval and fantasy to Hollywood movies like The Lord of the Rings and Braveheart and shows like Game of Thrones. And maybe cleavage. “Now it’s cool, but we’ve been doing it for 30 years,” says James Harvey II, his wooden cane planted like a sword. “Finally they catch up.” Everyone chuckles. Harvey wears the label of nerd proudly (he’s also proud husband of Journal Art Director Holly Harvey). The hobby is undeniably nerdy, with

John Jacques, another history
buff, first visited a Renaissance fair with his high school choir. He was hooked instantly. “Look at the cool stuff you get to wear,” Jacques says, smiling. Cool? Well, damn, maybe. Jacques is looking a little Robin Hood today, with his trim beard, the leather cap he made himself, the belt with hand-tooled Celtic knot-work and the 5 ½-foot wooden long bow. Only his diamond earring gives him away. Or maybe not — the Spaniards were pretty flashy back in the day. Jacques is far more particular about his clothes for events than for everyday. For him, the hobby is a chance to live out a fantasy — not necessarily a totally authentic re-creation (he’ll skip the plagues, thanks) — and have a good time. It’s also how he met his wife, Pia Gabriel, one of the festival organizers. He takes aim at the target and is still a moment, like a painting of an archer. Once he’s let the last arrow fly, he drops his arms and gives a little shrug to his friends, back to his modern self. The handmade bow belongs to Tony Smithers, who found it in a junk shop and guesses its age at about 45 years. He draws his finger down the side of the bow and explains how the design matches the weapons used in the 12th to 14th centuries, with a layer of heartwood facing the archer and a layer of sapwood facing out continued on next page

, monarch of the Excalibur’s imaginary kingdom, goes by Bill Kohse in the real world. Costume aside, it’s easy to imagine his white beard and lined eyes in another time. But when he’s sporting a jeweled crown and velvet robes, his slow, quiet way of talking comes across as regal reserve. Kohse is a retired Navy and Army man, and you can still find him in uniform now and then. Just not a modern one. For the past 40 years, he’s been spending weekends as a Civil War soldier, an Old West gunslinger, a Redcoat, a Celtic priest and now a king. Kohse didn’t have to poison, imprison or battle anyone to become king. Game of Thrones it’s not. Brushing aside the long, silver hair of his wig, he explains that he is simply filling a spot that was open. His bloodless ascent to the throne comes with no privileges, but Kohse, who has no grandchildren of his own, does enjoy the look on children’s faces when he passes through the crowds at a festival. He calls it “magical.” When Kohse was in high school, he had a history teacher who sparked his imagination, and his time in the military stoked his interest in ancient battles and lost kingdoms. Kohse is still learning, and says that one of the benefits of the hobby is meeting people who are skilled experts in the arcane — people who have actually made coins or built boats by hand.

all the research, the obscure facts, the decidedly un-cool enthusiasm and the obsessive attention to detail. Even next to cosplay — people who dress up at comic conventions — this is far more academic. Here, among like-minded friends, they just don’t giveth a rat’s hindquarters.
For history buffs, there is nothing like doing what you’ve only read about in books. “It’s one thing to watch a Ken Burns documentary,” says scholar KorolEvans in a phone interview from her office in Washington, D.C. It’s another to smell the powder from the musket.” Wearing period clothing and testing out period tools can teach us about daily life in another time and show us where our assumptions might have been wrong. A medieval dress, for example, is looser and comfier than you might imagine. And in colder weather (say, Wales 1,000 years ago), a girl might like a number of loose layers that allow for movement and a handy lace-up top for breastfeeding. When you’re actually in them, the clothes reveal themselves as practical garments for their environment and purpose, instead of the clumsy inventions of people who hadn’t yet figured out skinny jeans. Even a Renaissance corset — very different from Scarlet O’Hara’s breath-inhibiting cincher — though awkward to get into, makes one feel a little armored.

continued from previous page to create a spring effect. “They didn’t know what they had. Don’t tell anybody,” he says with a grin. Each arrow’s wooden shaft is tipped with a metal point meant for piercing armor — not Kevlar, mind you, the metal kind. And shooting them is not as easy as Orlando Bloom makes it look. First you put on gloves, as there’s no guard to spare your knuckle when the arrow passes over it. The arrow rests on that knuckle, which has to remain steady, like when you hold a cue stick. The arrow locks onto the bowstring with a notch in the wood, and you hold it in place with two fingers. Keeping your forward arm slightly bent (so as not to get snapped by what is essentially a giant sling shot) you pull back very hard all the way to your eye, aim and release those two string fingers. Some wooden long bows can deliver 120 pounds of force. Compound bows? Wench, please. “We’re united by the love of doing things the hard way,” says Smithers.

It’s no surprise to him at all that he’s still crafting arrows and dressing up in medieval clothing as a grown man with a job and a family.

“Look at that tank!” she says, turning back to the group. She has a big voice, like an actor trained for stage instead of film. She explains how the horses in an army would punch a hole in enemy defenses, trampling and kicking their men. Her large glasses slip a little as her hands fly around, a little like your favorite slightly mad history teacher. She homeschooled the couple’s children, one of whom is an active live action role player, or LARPer. After all, the family that dresses up in sixth century garb and fake-swordfights together stays together.

If you ran into him at the
Humboldt County Visitor’s Bureau, Tony Smithers would probably be buttoned down and necktied, but not today. His wife made his costume, which is faintly Eastern European in style, with a heavy belted tunic and a slouchy hat. The group sticks to the Dark Ages through the High Middle Ages, around 600 AD to the 1300s. It’s a very broad period, but even with such a wide range, the members are not picky. Mostly they try not to be “costume police” like some other groups that nitpick over details like machine sewing. They really just want to
have a good time, and they don’t want to exclude people who don’t have time to weave and sew by candlelight. People who have jobs and families, for example. Eileen Smithers says you get “big points” for making your own garments and keeping them period accurate, and it’s great to be “admired by people who know what they’re doing.” Still, nobody minds a storebought jerkin. In fact, these days, you can walk into a fair with a credit card and leave in full dragon-slaying drag. Swords and corsets that were once hard to come by are now just a mouse click away. She throws her head back: “God, I love the Internet.” Storage is a bit trickier. The hobby can take over a closet, a room and eventually a storage unit, especially if you don’t stick to one period. Tony Smithers, who, like many re-enactors also parties in other time periods, has costumes that go up to the early 1900s. And these are clothes that take up real estate — the king, for example, is wearing four layers of cotton, wool and fur. “It’s a lifetime of accumulation,” Kohse says with a sigh. And it ain’t cheap. Most of the people in the group don’t even want to calculate the tab on their hobby. Over the phone, Richard Horton admits it’s a pricey hobby. He estimates having spent a few thousand on equipment and costuming himself, and he says he knows others who’ve spent even more. A sword, for example can run you anywhere between $15 to $200 for a machine-made model from Pakistan, or $200 to $4,000 for a hand-crafted one. But the costumes and the props, whether homemade or found online, are essential to the experience, allowing you to slip into an alter ego that’s maybe a little more boisterous or a little more regal than the one that works in an office, fixes cars or raises kids. “It’s really about play,” says Korol-Evans. continued on next page

continued from previous page “Actors, street performers and people at Renaissance fairs — some people want to keep that alive.” Playing as children do, by immersing yourself in the game or fantasy, can be a temporary escape and a tremendous relief from the stresses of the world — relief we all need at one time or another. In that sense, suiting up in armor is not all that different from signing up for fantasy baseball camp or painting your face at a football game. She also notes that during the recession, attendance at Renaissance fairs like the one she studied in Maryland grew. In fact, the day after the attacks on Sept. 11, it was packed.
Mary Dorman, the main
organizer of the Excalibur festival, climbs into the saddle of a blonde horse, drapes her medieval velvet gown over the animal’s haunches and takes off her black Jackie O. sunglasses. She laughs and says that normally a lady would have had more help getting up there. But Dorman seems like a lady who’s got it handled.

After a few photos, she swaps her burgundy gown for jeans and a pullover to take care of the horses. She tosses her sandy hair over her shoulder and strides across the field holding Ginger’s reins in one hand and an armful of equipment in the other. Events like these are “living history,” says Dorman. They’re a chance to take a break from the grind of daily life. As for her alter egos, she laughs and says there may be too many to count. “I’m always kind of myself, but myself placed back in time.” She pauses. “I might give myself a title.” Back when she taught fourth graders at St. Bernard’s, Dorman introduced heraldry to her students, having them create coats of arms as an exercise in spiritual and character development. Choosing the symbols for their crests, she says, was not about pretending to be knights and ladies, but exploring their real selves and marking out their strengths, the traits they would need to call on difficult times. She taught
the children a code of chivalry, which she sums up as “your own sense of honor and honoring others,” and even knighted them with a sword of Excalibur — back then she was the Lady of the Lake, since Guinevere was a bit racy for school. After a trip to a festival in Nuremburg, Germany, she upped the ante to a school fundraiser with the SCA and 14 vendors on a cement slab behind St. Bernard’s. When the jousters showed up the following year, they moved to the school’s aptly named Crusader Field. For the past five years, Mad River Hospital has donated the use of the field next door. Proceeds from the roughly 4,500 tickets over the weekend go to the hospital’s Adult Day Health Care program, St. Bernard’s school and Redwood Horse Rescue. (Dorman says she was asked by the recipients not to disclose the exact amount.) The hospital also lets the SCA practice their sparring on the field in exchange for continued on page 20

continued from page 18 performances at the fair. Normally, according to Horton, with paid staff, performers, insurance and venue fees, a medieval or renaissance fair can cost upwards of $15,000 to put on. With an all-volunteer staff and donations from performers and companies like Six Rivers Brewery, Pierson’s and Pepsi, the cost of the Excalibur Fair is closer to half that. Even the jousters lower their usual rates because the event isn’t for profit. While Horton thinks fairs that are run for profit are fine, they are a bit “more Disney,” with strict corporate structures. Some of those fairs, he says, can be “very much about politics and status. It’s what makes ours special. We say leave all that at home — there’s enough of it in the real world.”
Equally nonprofit and
low-key is the Medieval Festival of Courage at Christie’s Pumpkin Patch in Blue Lake, run by Betina Eipper, principal of Coastal Grove charter school. Dorman and Eipper worked together for a few years until the festival evolved into separate events in 2010. Eipper is a slender woman with wide eyes and the kind of steady gaze that holds a child’s attention. She is very proud of the agricultural focus of the harvest-time event, which features 4-H activities, cider making and a bee-keeping demonstration. Things get medieval when the Knights of Mayhem (from Utah — who knew?) show up for full-contact jousting and sword fighting. In a video on the troupe’s website (knightsofmayhem.com), javelins splinter

against armor and burly men proudly recite their injuries, which are legion. Eipper has gone to a few Renaissance fairs over the years, but she’s not a diehard re-enactor. “I just like to dress the horses,” she says, touching her keychain, which is a tiny horse’s bit. Around a dozen horses will be dolled up for her festival’s Fairy Equestrian Parade, which is a big draw for the weekend. Eippert says the ticket sales from the 1,000 or so visitors cover the cost of putting it on and the school groups and nonprofits that set up booths keep their own profits. Historical accuracy is less important for Eipper than the community coming together and creating an experience for the children, like the Enchanted Village Tour.
Of course, not everything at the Excalibur Medieval Tournament and Market Faire is historically accurate, either. While most of the food served at (wait for it) The Holy Grill and other stalls will be medieval, some things sound decidedly New World, including the corn dogs, which Dorman says she is pretending are “maybe something from the Orient.” Also a bouncy castle has been donated — and you don’t say no to a bouncy castle. “People want to see you enjoying being back in time,” she says. Until then, she and the other volunteers will be busy putting in fences, setting up tents and stocking up on mead — those Vikings will be here before you know it. l

No Sleep Till Brooklyn Stuffed pizza tends to let you down while doubling your carbs. This is partly because the bubbly exposed cheese doesn’t happen and the sauce stays too wet. The Brooklyn ($4.50) at Paul’s Live from New York (604 F St. Eureka) does not fall into this trap, mainly because it is — shhhh! — not really a slice of pizza. It’s profoundly garlicky sautéed spinach with mozzarella and ricotta cheese between two layers of pizza crust, the top of which is dusted with Romano cheese. Sharing is a good idea, as are mints, unless you want to keep Twilight fans at bay. (So sad — it’s over and they have nowhere to go.) But what about sauce? Got your sauce right here.

A Moveable Feast Tragically, the lure of delicately battered fish and chips might keep one from trying the mashed potato cone ($5) at the Lighthouse Grill (355 Main St., Trinidad). There you are at the edge of the sea — salt air, outdoor seating — can you really order a land-locked menu item? Yes. Yes, you can. This is not some state fair gimmick. It’s a freshly rolled cornmeal and herb waffle cone, like a crisped version of the savorysweet cornbread that comes with chili or Thanksgiving dinner.
Inside is a hot dollop of creamy mashed potato, fallen-apart brisket in gravy, melting cheddar cheese and pieces of smoky bacon. You can also go vegetarian with veggie gravy and cheese ($4). Do not try to go at it without utensils like an ice cream — too risky with the fragile cone. Get in there with a fork and hog toppings; others at your table will want a taste, and you didn’t come here to make friends. If the joint is jumping, there will be a wait. It took nearly an hour for us, so think outside the box and maybe get an ice cream first so you’re not too weak to lift a fork when the main course arrives. Is it wrong to want a turkey version for the holidays? Consider how easy dinner with relatives would be if you could just pick up your dinner in a handy cone and take a walk. You know, just around the block.

Gravy Train The V & N Burger Bar in Arcata (460 I St.) gets instant street cred for only serving chicken fried steak for breakfast ($9.25). It’s the best part of fried chicken — the crispy, salty crust! — on something like a thin Salisbury steak. What cut of beef exactly? It’s early — stop asking so many questions. Thick, peppery pan gravy with sausage chunks that are on the verge of being meatballs smother the whole thing. It comes with two eggs, toast and tender, stringy hash browns. The place is closed on weekends, so you might have to save this for a day when you’re playing hooky, unless your boss is cool with you taking Google naps at your desk.

(chocolate, banana and peanut butter) but discover instead orange blossom honey. It is the ideal end of summer flavor — light and faintly fragrant, but not actually flowery, with that warm honey sweetness ($3.75 cone). My fear of bees disappearing just got real. And the cone is so perfectly chewy rather than brittle, as only a freshly made waffle cone can be. Then a coworker returns with carrot ice cream, possibly unseating my choice in the taste-of-the-greatoutdoors department. It is remarkably and happily not like carrot juice. Instead, it’s that farmers market “wow, these carrots are so sweet today” taste. Plus, when people judge you for a mid-week cone, you can smugly say, “It’s a vegetable.” l

hit 60 this past week, and my youngest daughter turned the ripe old age of 18 on the same day. To celebrate, and in my case, to prove that I was not nearly ready to kick the bucket, I suggested that we take on the zip line in the Arcata Community Forest. To my dismay, Mei Lan agreed. Just the thought of trusting a thin wire some 70 feet above the forest floor was enough to cause my stomach to knot and my muscles to tense. I had learned the definition of acrophobia from an early age. Yet I couldn’t dare allow Mei Lan to see me hesitate, let alone back out. I made reservations on the North Coast Adventure Center’s website (www.northcoastadventurecenters.com) and hoped for a freak North Coast lightning storm. However, the weather was nothing short of spectacular as we reached Redwood Park, and I am too cheap to ever think of walking away from the $75 (per person) that I had paid. In addition to Mei Lan and my wife, Amy, who is far more at home near the edges of things, I was joined by Philippe and “JJ.” JJ was stationed with the Navy in Everett, Wash., and he and Philippe were, I came to understand later, more typical zip line patrons. Tourists. We were all cheerfully welcomed by Samatha “Sam” Thompson, an HSU social work major and, more importantly, our risk manager and guide for this afternoon. She
had piles of straps, carabiners, helmets, ropes and other paraphernalia carefully organized. Following brief introductions, she got down to the business of outfitting each of us. I had successfully kept my anxiety at bay until Sam, in a rather offhand way, indicated that it was important to position the gear correctly to avoid flipping upside down at an inopportune time. Now it was time for ground school. This was a crucial dry run, when the only consequence could be minor embarrassment. Safety was clearly her highest priority. We learned about lobster claws, brake checks and vocalizing our actions. We practiced on three temporary ropes until the process felt comfortable. Throughout the rehearsal, I could not help but eye the miniscule platforms perched high in the redwoods, knowing that the rarified air would cause me to forget everything I had learned. I mouthed a silent prayer. Graduation from ground school meant that we were cleared to climb up a series of heavy metal staples that had been pounded into the redwood tree that served as home to the first platform. That was no easy task. Adam Wanden, the Adventure Center’s only full-time staffer, told me that one in 10 “bail before ever getting to the zip line.” The shorter members of my family thought the climb could have been designed to be a little easier, but Sam commented, with a twinkle in her eye, “Adam likes challenging people.”
Adam told us that the oldest to have conquered these zip lines had been a 75-year-young woman and the youngest was only 7, although he generally requires that participants be at least 12. The largest was a strapping 6-foot-8-inch fellow who weighed 340 pounds. The three zip lines are not long. The shortest is a mere 30 feet, and the longest is 100 feet. It is not the length but that first leap of faith required to push yourself from the platform into open space that can clear your pores and make every cell in your body tingle. With each launch, it became easier to relax and enjoy the full experience. With each landing, it became easier to feel the exhilaration and appreciate this birds-eye view of the world. I will readily admit that I still found it much easier to look forward than down. Adam has been working with the City of Arcata on a second location in the Community Forest with only a 12-foot climb and two zip lines, 270 and 300 feet long. These should be open next season. None of our local zip lines compete with the extremes available globally. There are lines that are more than a mile long and send you flying at speeds of up to 100 mph over rivers and mountains, past volcanoes and even above the Great Wall of China. But even our more modest local zip tour is sufficient to evoke that fear-edged euphoria that only comes from pushing your personal boundaries. And what a beautiful setting. Since most of our interaction with our redwood forests occurs at ground level, there is something to be said for tasting this world from the canopy of these second growth behemoths. Both Sam and Adam agreed that they enjoyed watching people go through the entire process. From initially “looking up at the high platforms to committing to the first jump and finishing with a real sense of accomplishment when back on the ground,” said Adam. We had to be one of their success stories. I was apprehensive through ground school and my usual cautious self until I had to let go and first fling myself into the abyss. Back on terra firma, I felt a mix of relief and satisfaction. It must have been obvious. When my next milestone approaches, I am not sure that BASE jumping or hang gliding will be a part of my dance card. But then, I have always remembered that George H.W. Bush jumped from a plane at 13,000 feet to celebrate his 80th birthday. Maybe next time I will try skydiving. What do you think, Mei Lan? l If you would like to write a Get Out!

FIVe THINGS To knoW
Before Choosing Your Friends For the Day By Jennifer Savage
“Our friends are the family we choose,” goes the adage, solace for those whose friends compensate for less stellar blood relations. The key word is “choose.” Since we do have a choice in the matter, today and every day, choose wisely. As you sit down with your coffee and open Facebook or check your email, consider what it would be like to surround yourself only with people who inspire you to be your best, people who are kind, honest and can make you laugh at yourself and the world around you. 2. Not sure? Before you send that Facebook message, before you open Gchat, before you text, before you call, ask yourself, “Does this person add value to
my life?” Value added can include showing up at your door pre-dawn to join you for a beach run, being understanding when you break down watching Girls because you’ve had too much wine, offering solace when your family has wound you so tight you can scarcely breathe, providing inspiration when your creative energy has flatlined, giving comfort when bad news has you shaking, serving up humor when you’ve made another one of your dumb mistakes, gifting you with unconditional love when exhaustion and frustration sends you into a bitchy mood. The overall theme is support. Pay attention to that. Friends don’t bullshit you when you’re making a boneheaded decision, but neither do they tear you down as a matter of
habit. Friends have your back. 3. If you find yourself in a toxic friendship, get out. Humboldt’s a small town. Create as much distance as possible via social media for starters. Block this person on Facebook. Change the contact name in your phone to “Don’t Answer.” Unfollow this person on Instagram, Twitter and Vine. Make many dates with better friends. When you run into him at Wildberries or the Co-op or a Crabs game, a polite nod is enough — keep moving. Stay strong. 4. Examine your own worth as a friend. Do you take people’s struggles seriously? Do you realize everyone has his or her own burden? Or are you in the habit of judging how theirs relates to yours on a scale of who’s worse off? When someone comes to you in sadness, do you offer an ear, a sympathetic email, a wellmade mocha, a cocktail? Do you refrain from giving advice unless asked? If asked, are you gentle? If you’re not gentle, is it because you know someone well enough to be sure tough love is in order? 5. How to recognize when a so-called friend is being an asshole. Does she embarrass you in front of other people? Is he always starting fights in bars? Is mocking her primary form of communication? Does he fail to ask you one single question about your life during the hour he spends complaining about his? If you want an immature someone to sap your
continued on next page energy, consider adopting a teenager. At least they actually need you. Don’t waste your time on a friend who doesn’t deserve you — and if you leave every interaction with said friend regretting your time together, then that’s not friendship, that’s what they called codependency in the ’90s. As in, you are both dependent on these sad, sad roles out of bad habit or in hopes of something good finally emerging. If the person you’re spending time with feels compelled to tell you all the things you don’t do well, complains you have no sense of humor, wishes you would be a better listener, rolls her eyes when you suggest a different Mexican restaurant, ridicules your taste in music, says things like, “Not that you would understand,” well, that’s not friendship. That’s suffering. Stop it. Bonus: The best example I have of friendship is when, during a particularly challenging time, a girlfriend cut through all the layers of hurt to reassure me, “As long as I am alive, you will never be cold, hungry or alone.” Her tone was so matter-of-fact, as if she was telling me the color of the sky or what time we’d be having dinner. This love she had for me existed as routinely as gravity as far as she was concerned. We should all be so fortunate. So I ask you, would your friends say the same? If not, reassign them to a more distant list on Facebook and give your time accordingly. l continued on next page

falling into humble fates that fulfill them.) Kaufman had just done a large ensemble comedy (Stage Door), and the movie he’d been writing may have influenced this play’s zany moments — it was the Marx Brothers’ Night at the Opera. Meanwhile, he was literally hiding out to escape a court subpoena in a Hollywood sex scandal, so he placed two of his characters in legal jeopardy. Kaufman emerged to direct the play with a title he and Hart didn’t like: You Can’t Take It With You. Hart was near hysteria, certain the play would fail. It was an immediate and enduring hit, and the most honored of the Kaufman and Hart collaborations. The play tells a very American tale, so perhaps it isn’t surprising that the Oscar-nominated film version got the Frank Capra treatment. The play is better. North Coast Rep honors the play’s threeact form (with two intermissions), standard for the 1930s though a novelty these days. But it works really well in three acts and does not seem long. The conflict of valuing the pursuit of money over living other dreams also furnished the theme of such plays as Philip Barry’s Holiday (most famous as the 1938 Cary Grant/Katherine Hepburn movie) and Herb Gardner’s A Thousand Clowns (with Jason Robards, who also starred in the 1965 film). But it’s interesting that I can’t think of recent examples. Calder Johnson is scenic and lighting director, Jenneveve Hood did the subtly striking costumes, and Michael Thomas did the sound. You Can’t Take It With You plays weekends at NCRT through Oct. 12.

Cain, Robert Garner and Tony Martinez. On opening night the clarity of both Mack Owen’s direction and the performances proved that the play itself is a solid wonder, an unlikely delight transcending its time. As the production continues it can become even crisper, and actors will find new comic moments. There’s also opportunity for better use of sound to increase the comedy. The craziness on stage is at least matched by the bizarre process of how the play was written. George S. Kaufman was one of the most successful Broadway playwrights in history, and the younger Moss Hart was not far behind. They had collaborated on two successful plays when they carved out time in their busy Broadway and Hollywood careers to work on a project that they soon realized wasn’t going to work. Hart, known for his emotional highs and lows, was in despair. Kaufman, who famed critic Brooks Atkinson called “the gloomy dean of Broadway wits,” remembered a Hart idea from two years before, about a mad but loveable family. They talked it out with mounting excitement, and Kaufman contacted his producer to book a theatre and hire a specific list of actors — all before the play was written. Then Kaufman and Hart wrote frantically, with the particular talents of these actors to guide them. They drew from everything around them.

Pandas — giant, red, kung fu, Sandoval — own the Internet. Why? Because the furry, graphically colored pandas are adorable, exotic and endangered. (If you’ve never clicked on a panda picture online, you might be a serial killer. Get that checked out.) The red panda is like a raccoon from out of town that doesn’t want to get in your garbage cans. Very chill. And we have a whole family of them at our zoo. Sunday is a free day at Sequoia Park Zoo to celebrate International Red Panda Day. It’s an actual thing set up by the Red Panda Network. Which is also a real thing. We looked it up. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., kids can do all sorts of activities with the folks from the zoo and PG&E, which is sponsoring the day. Kids can become official Red Panda Rangers, too (great band name — snap it up before someone else does). Enter the raffle for a chance to hand feed the pandas (squee!) or maybe take home conceptual art from Sumo the red panda, who walks through paint onto canvas (don’t ask him about it or you’ll be stuck for 20 minutes of him going on about his process). Pale, fluffy baby Móhú (“foggy” in Chinese) is starting to venture out with Mom, so there’s even a chance of a cub sighting. Either way, there’s a live feed you can watch for a little panda reality TV. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

We like to think of the Brits as reserved and refined, and with their perky boy bands and chic princess, it’s easy to forget how creepy they can be. The Humboldt County Library is here to remind us how weird it can get across the pond with its October film series, “Keep Calm: Paranormal England.” First up on Oct. 1 at 6:30 p.m. is The Innocents, hosted by Michael Logan. It stars Deborah Kerr and is based on Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw, a gothic novella in which the governess of two eerie little children starts to think they might be possessed. Fix that one, Super Nanny. Next Michael Logan hosts Night of the Demon on Oct. 8. Adapted from “Casting the Runes” by M.R. James and directed by Jacques Tourneur, this one features a doubting Yank psychologist who’s looking into a colleague’s death and develops the heebie-jeebies from a local occultist. On Oct. 15, it’s the much lighter Blithe Spirit, which is based on a Noel Coward play and is directed by David Lean. Married Rex Harrison has a medium over and accidentally brings back his dead wife’s ghost. Awkward. Hosted by the blithe Bob Doran. Finally, on Oct. 29, Dorothy Macardle’s Uneasy Freehold comes to the screen as The Uninvited, a spookier version of House Hunters International. Michelle Cartier hosts this film about a brother and sister who realize their real estate bargain needs work — like an exorcism. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

Prisoners inspires Stockholm syndrome By John J. Bennett email@example.com
PRISONERS. When we were small, my brother and I decided to play a joke on our parents and disappear for a while. This only amounted to a couple of hours hiding out above the garage, and I couldn’t understand why Dad was so upset when he found us. A few decades of living have taught me that the wildness in his eyes that day was inarticulate panic. Losing a child is the most frightening, awful thing a parent can imagine. I have never seen it interpreted with as much clarity and despair as in this movie. On a dreary Thanksgiving Day, two little girls go missing. The only clue to their disappearance is a battered motor home spotted in the neighborhood. This leads to the apprehension of a person of interest named Alex Jones (Paul Dano). But Jones has the mind of a child, and exhaustive interrogation and forensic investigation fail to turn up any further evidence. Despite the entreaties of lead detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal), Jones is released with the girls
still missing. Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman), a devout Christian and model of selfreliance, refuses to accept this. He resorts to the only investigative technique at his disposal: sadistic violence. He eventually draws the parents of the other missing girl (Viola Davis and Terrence Howard) into his terrible but understandable scheme, while his wife (Maria Bello) sinks ever deeper into a coma of depression and self-medication. Dover’s wrath sets up a tense standoff with Loki, who doggedly continues to pursue the abductor. For 2 ½ unrelenting hours, Prisoners forces the viewer to live in the same airless darkness as the characters. Tension and foreboding set in immediately, and we’re never offered a single minute of relief. But the film is so well-crafted, so technically and thematically breathtaking, that I savored it. Director Denis Villeneuve (making his Hollywood feature debut) hit the popular radar when his Incendies was nominated continued on next page

for the Best Foreign Language Academy Award in 2011. I guiltily admit that I haven’t seen any of his earlier work. Based on the strength of Prisoners, I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. He has clearly mastered the marriage of visual style with subject matter, not to mention the ability to assemble an all-star crew. The lugubrious tone of this inventive, complex script (by Aaron Guzikowski) is intensified by the measured camera moves and doleful lighting of cinematographer Roger Deakins. Villeneuve enlisted Clint Eastwood’s editing team (Joel Cox and Gary Roach), and their sense of timing is totally appropriate, as is Johann Johannsson’s score, equal parts mournful and twitchy. The production design and costuming create a lived-in, shopworn world of weatherbeaten houses under gunmetal skies and pelting autumnal rain. Into that world Villeneuve introduces the best ensemble cast in years. Jackman in particular gives a career-best performance, his eyes glowing with inexpressible pain throughout. His rictus of fear and rage is a terrible sight, and he never, ever lets it slip. His acting takes us deep into the existential crisis of a kind man forced by circumstance to do unspeakable things. Gyllenhaal more than holds his own, fleshing out Loki as a complicated, focused man with unspoken darkness in his past. With subtle physical tics and hair-trigger physicality, he speaks volumes about his character before he says a word. I told a friend that Prisoners is by far the best film of the year. Upon reflection, though, I think it does a disservice to a masterpiece. Prisoners is the finest policeprocedural in decades, one that bravely navigates vast wastelands of emotional desolation.

Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail Cheryl Strayed, Vintage
Good writers can be divided into two categories: recounters and listeners. Recounters make you want to hear their story. Listeners make you feel like you’re reading your own. Cheryl Strayed is a listener. Her immensely popular advice column, “Dear Sugar,” resounds with empathy, wisdom and universal positive regard. Reading her gentle words, you often feel as though you’ve been poked in a sensitive spot, as though Strayed has been sifting through the contents of your soul and somehow loves you anyway. Her new book, Wild, is an account of her 1,100-mile solo hike along the Pacific Crest trail. If Strayed is an angel, Wild is the story of how she earned her wings. Strayed sets off on the trail at the age of 26, still reeling from the death of her mother, a gruesome divorce and a passionate affair with If Strayed is intravenous heroin. With absolutely no an angel, Wild is experience backpackthe story of ing, inadequate gear how she earned and only “the world’s loudest whistle” to her wings. protect her from predators, it’s a wonder she survived to tell her story. If the success of Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love is any indication, audiences are hungry for autobiographies of women resolving existential dilemmas through unconventional journeys. Wild taps into that hunger. Strayed narrates practically every step, missing toenail, good Samaritan, menstrual cycle, trail-side romance and MRE meal, along with each ensuing epiphany. It’s an amazing accomplishment. Why isn’t it a better story? It may be that Strayed is simply writing outside of her comfort zone. She’s in her element when she’s telling our own lives back to us, but the detailed epic that is Wild somehow feels forced. Listeners can inspire. The real value of their stories is in how we want to change our own lives once we emerge from them. Wild’s appeal is in the concept of taking on a challenge so large that you can’t help but be changed by it. No one begrudges Strayed the journey. We’re glad she took it and brought back its wisdom. Inspiring? Sure. But like the hike itself, a bit of a trudge. — Linda Stansberry

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.

Printing the Journal By Barry Evans
f you’re reading the paper version of this week’s North Coast Journal, you’re holding a product that was created last Tuesday night on the Samoa Peninsula. Western Web, which occupies 24,000 square feet in the Fairhaven Business Park (in a space previously used as a machine shop by the Samoa Pulp Mill), has been printing the North Coast Journal since Thanksgiving 2005. In 2005, Rob Arkley hired veteran printer Steve Jackson of the San Francisco Examiner to set up a quality shop to print the daily Eureka Reporter locally. A few months after the Eureka Reporter folded in late 2009, Jackson and co-worker Jack Davis bought the operation, with Jackson trading his “director of operations” title under Arkley to “president” of his co-owned company. Today, Western Web is responsible for most of what gets printed in Humboldt County, other than the Times-Standard, which has its own print shop. A print run of the Journal works like this: PDF files are sent from the Journal’s office in Old Town Eureka to Western Web early Tuesday evening. The first job is imposition, in which a technician electronically melds every four Journal pages into a single “four-up” printer page. (Color pages require separate plates, one each for cyan, magenta, yellow and black, or CMYK.) The technician then “burns” aluminum printing plates to be hung onto the press cylinders. This pre-press work takes two or three
hours, so that the actual printing starts around 10 p.m. “With today’s technology, we’re usually pretty close to the final product after running the first 100 or so copies,” says Jackson. This is a far cry from pre-digital days of only a couple of decades ago, when, typically, presses ran thousands of copies to ensure perfect color registration and accurate folding and cutting. Once satisfied, the press operator “marks” the output and the 21,000 copy print run begins, with pre-mark copies set aside for recycling. The Journal is actually printed in two sections, since Western Web’s “Tensor T-1400” four-color, two-sided perfecting press can effectively print up to 32 pages at a time, and the Journal usually is 44 pages or more. As pages run off the press in a continuous web of paper, they’re automatically cut and folded, ready for collation, counting and bundling into stacks of 50 that drivers will pick up around 5 a.m. on Wednesday. Western Web uses only recycled paper with a minimum of 40 percent postconsumer waste, which comes from mills in Oregon and Washington that both the Forest Stewardship Council and the Rainforest Alliance have certified. The net result, you’ll be pleased to hear, is that no trees are cut to print the Journal or anything else from Western Web. l Barry Evans’ (firstname.lastname@example.org) past is littered with mimeographs, screen printers and spirit duplicators. He misses them not one bit.
