Oh, Dan Editor: Wow. I really wish I hadn’t read the recent article about Dan Johnson in the Oct. 10 edition of the Journal (“Meet Dan Johnson”). Before Mr. Johnson’s plagiarism issue unfolded, I knew that he was a local developer, a Rotarian, a soccer coach and generally seemed like a decent enough guy. But now I know that in Mr. Johnson’s world he doesn’t know how to “own” a mistake, he tends to lie, is conveniently forgetful, likes to throw f-bombs when making a point, follows the “tried and true” political strategy of never explaining oneself or admitting guilt and if pressed on an issue goes into “freaking winner” attack mode to divert attention away from oneself and play the victim. A simple sorry followed by acknowledgement of the true speech writer and perhaps how he and his wife were so impressed by the original speech that he chose to use it for his own daughter’s graduation could have sent the current situation down a different road. The only positive that I have garnered from this recent local drama is that while Mr. Johnson may not know the definition of plagiarism, both of my kids who are Arcata High students now know exactly what plagiarism is as well as the embarrassing outcomes that can result from it. Dennis Houghton, Eureka Editor: I first got to meet Dan Johnson as a defenseless seventh-grader at Zane Jr. High in the late 1970s. He and his friends liked to stuff me in a garbage can (popularly known as “canning”) behind the gym on a seemingly regular basis. As a defenseless, smaller kid I could do nothing but scream. They made my life hell. Surprisingly, I was able to reach him on the phone at his office last week, but he conveniently could “not recall” me or the incidents. He seems to not recall a lot. “They talk about bullying in high school... ,” Mr. Johnson said in the Journal’s article. Well he was a bully way before that. Ken Harper, Eureka Editor: Dan Johnson claims not to be a “goddamned politician” but he clearly has what it takes to be one, including a win-at-allcosts attitude, a highly selective memory, a knack for obfuscation, unbridled arrogance, delusions of self-importance, the belief that the rules don’t apply to him and really bad grammar. He kinda reminds me of Dubya, only cruder. I think he should resign from the school board if only because his many talents are being wasted there and could be put to much better use in a higher elected office. Dan for President!

Editor: Dan Johnson gets front page coverage, a good article, both sides of the man. The original families still rule this town, don’t they? What I see is Danco is the name on so many of the new constructions. Danco knows who to talk to in planning and zoning. Danco is working the federally subsidized affordable housing (no wonder the Republicans squawk). Danco is planning big subdivisions that will be what makes us look like Santa Rosa. Yet if a regular guy wants to build a simple little house that will be truly affordable, he will be up against a bureaucracy that will confuse, delay, frustrate and double the cost of his project. This is what the planners should be seriously looking at. My dad built houses in the ‘50s. All that was required was an electrical and a septic permit. I don’t believe the layers of costly requirements we face today have really
improved houses. It means that only the Dan Johnsons can afford to build. So we limit the creativity of our community, and have a severe affordable housing crisis. Jessica Bittner, Bayside Editor: When I was a young lad my grandfather offered some advice that went something like this: “Go ahead and let people think you are stupid. Don’t open your mouth and prove it.” This principle is really just the intersection of human behavior and the laws of probability. I think about this advice far more than anyone should have to. For all the many gifts Carl Johnson gave his grandson to get a jump start on life, young Dan would have been better served by the wisdom of my granddad. Glen Nagy, Arcata

Band members from left to right: Ron Perry, Jim Lahman, Jenner Cohune, Jim Bent and Stephen Phines.
Murphy’s Supports Local Talent “The Jim Lahman Band played at my birthday party,” says Jenner Cohune. “They let me sing a song and then asked me to join the band!” Jenner is named in honor of Jenner By The Sea in Sonoma County which, as a side note, was the ﬁlming location of Alfred Hitchcock’s movie “The Birds.” But that was back in 1963 and Jenner wasn’t around just yet. The band has gained and lost members over the years and it looks like they now have the perfect mix of talent and they all love Murphy’s Markets! Is Murphy’s the key to musical genius in blues, funk, jazz and rock & roll?
Jim Lahman earned money for his ﬁrst guitar working as a farm boy. He has been learning and studying the intricacies of the instrument since he was nine years old. Stephen Phines is one of the band’s voices and also plays the allimportant bass in the band. He’s the dude in the hat! He attended school in San Clemente, which is a bit further on down the Paciﬁc coast from Humboldt. Ron Perry is the paramount harmonica man and adds to the band’s vocal sound, says, “I have ridden my bike to Murphy’s all my life. My daughter Rachel works there now.”
Jim Bent, the band’s drummer, says, “I have been shopping at Murphy’s since 1985. Claire, my wife, was the original vocalist in the band.” Claire and Jim also work together in their business, Jim Bent Upholstery. The Jim Lahman Band plays regularly at Shamus T Bones, The Logger Bar, Arts Alive! and all sorts of gigs around town.

McKinleyville candidates talk pot, cops and growth By Grant Scott-Goforth email@example.com
he upcoming off-year election is kicking up a bit of dust in McKinleyville, that unincorporated burg of 15,000 where horses, its motto proclaims, have the right of way. Four people are trying to squeeze into three seats on the McKinleyville Community Services District — three incumbents and one retired professor who hope to have a chair when the music stops on Nov. 5. Candidates say the district is facing several issues: a lack of community interest, the board’s thorny attitude, marijuana growers and the long-debated direction of McKinleyville’s growth. Up for re-election are Dennis Mayo, a rancher and the current board president; Bill Wennerholm, a chiropractor who has served on the board for 12 years; and David Couch, a wastewater operator elected in 2009. Running for the first time is George Wheeler, a retired Humboldt State computer information sciences professor. Since McKinleyville has no city government, the services district offers some of the only local control. It delivers water and sewer services to McKinleyville homes and businesses, maintains parks and streetlights, and offers some library services. Other community services, like planning and law enforcement, are handled by the county. Whether the district should expand its powers (it could, with funding) or if the community should become a city have been talking points for years. Put simply: More services require more money. And more money requires residents’ approval of a funding plan — increased property taxes, bond measures or sales taxes. Candidates differ on whether the district’s services should expand — but they all believe that McKinleyville’s voters aren’t keen on raising the costs of living there, even if it meant additional services. Wheeler, who’s running for public office for the first time, wants the services district to build a solar farm to cover the its energy costs and, in the long-term, sell
electricity. “Then we’d be arguing over what to do with the money instead of whether to raise rates again,” he said. Wennerholm, who’s been a services director longer than any other board member, said the district has already evaluated — and rejected — the idea of using solar power because the project didn’t make financial sense. “If you’re going to promise something, at least understand what the board has the ability to deal with,” he said. Wheeler likes the idea of having sheriff’s deputies dedicated to patrolling McKinleyville — which he said could be done for $1.50 a month charged to each McKinleyville home. Give that money to the county, get a couple of cops in exchange. Wheeler hopes the idea will resonate with older voters. But Dennis Mayo said that was a rosy figure. “That much money is only providing the deputies — not the cars or the training or the equipment or the dispatchers or the workman’s comp.” Wennerholm said it would change the policing dynamic of the community as well, possibly leading to less law enforcement response when the dedicated deputies were off duty. “People sit and they figure on their little pads,” he said. “The reality is, it’s 24 hours a day. It’s a lot of overhead and infrastructure which we’re not set up for.” Meanwhile, eyes in McKinleyville are focusing on a new electricity-usage tax in neighboring Arcata, which targets indoor marijuana growers. People in McKinleyville — and other cities and suburbs around the county — fear that the higher costs of growing in Arcata will lead to an exodus, and growers will swarm in elsewhere. So what can be done? Not much, agreed the candidates. It’s up to the county to implement a similar tax in hopes of discouraging growers, who are already a problem for the services district. “McKinleyville probably has more indoor growers than Arcata does,” Wennerholm said. The district has the power to deal with industrial sites that can overburden waste-
water treatment, but no similar recourse for household growers whose nutrients and chemicals can inundate McKinleyville’s wastewater plant. Then there’s the future of McKinleyville’s development. The relationship with county planners has been somewhat strained since the county earmarked some McKinleyville land for affordable housing. “That was really universally unpopular in McKinleyville,” Couch said, but he’s ambivalent about the services district spending the money to create its own planning department. Mayo said the district already plays a role in development. “We can be and are a major part of planning, in that we provide the essential services.” Wheeler took no stand on the financial part of the planning issue, but added that “people in McKinleyville should have the final word on what’s built in McKinleyville.” The services district has somewhat of a prickly reputation. During his 2009 campaign, Couch told the Journal that the board was “rude to people.” That’s being brought up again this year by Wheeler, the non-incumbent. When he came to the board several years ago with concerns about herbicides being used on a nearby lot, Wheeler said, he was met
with a difficult and “draconian” process to get his concerns taken up by the board. With that issue resolved, he wants to attract people to meetings by making them more fun — or at least more accommodating. Even the physical layout of the meetings — the staff with its back to the public, a podium blocking view of the directors — excludes the public, Wheeler said. “It’s not laid at the feet of any specific board member,” he said, it’s just an attitude of the board he’d like to see change. “Open up this circle-the-wagons thing that’s going on.” But Wennerholm said community members aren’t attending board meetings because they’re happy with the way things are going. “When there’s not a squeaky wheel nobody’s looking at it.” Several recent issues — water fluoridation and a community skate park — have brought the public to district meetings in decent numbers, but attendance typically hovers around two people. With more projects on the horizon, including a $10 million wastewater treatment plant and creation of a riverside park off North Bank Road, Couch and Wheeler said they’d like to see more participation. ●

Every other team in the Far West League left without warning the Humboldt Crabs By Ryan Burns
as it something we said? The Humboldt Crabs appears to be the only team left in the Far West League after its three collegiate summer league-mates — the Menlo Park Legends, the Neptune Beach Pearl and the Walnut Creek Crawdads — joined the Santa Barbarabased California Collegiate League last week. Crabs officials only found out about the mass exodus by reading the news on the other teams’ Facebook pages, said Vikki Rossi, the Crabs’ acting president. There were follow-up emails from the organizations, at least, so the Crabbies aren’t being completely shunned. Rossi said she doesn’t know why the teams switched leagues, but she doesn’t expect it to hurt the Crabs’ 2014 season. Schedules had already been set for the organization’s 70th anniversary season, and the Legends, Pearl and Crawdads — among other regular opponents — have all agreed to come play again at the Arcata Ball Park. “Our plan most likely is to either play independent this year or inquire about other leagues we might be able to join,” Rossi said. But while the Crabs are scrambling to come up with a new game plan, it appears
that its adversaries had this move slated for a while. Pat Burns, the commissioner of the California Collegiate League, said the three Bay Area teams contacted him more than two months ago, immediately after the season ended. “They called me and were very serious about their interest in joining the CCL and made a good-faith deposit in both monies and verbal commitments,” Burns said. The teams will join the Pacific Union Financial Capitalists (now there’s an American team name) to create a new division within the now 12team league. The Crabs organization had its share of troubles this year, including a bat-throwing incident that became a viral video, the post-season marijuana-related arrest of manager Matt Nutter and complaints about increasingly rowdy home crowds. But former Crabs President Matthew Filar said he doesn’t think those issues drove the rest of the league away. “Over the years fans have gotten a little bit louder,” he acknowledged. Most teams say they enjoy some good heckling as long as it doesn’t get personal, Filar added. After all, players’ moms are often in the crowd. But Filar said it can get out of hand. “We’re gonna try to convince them to tone it

down a little bit this [next] year ... post some rules of conduct and reminders.” If the team opts to play independently next year, as the Marysville Gold Sox have done for some time, Filar said the only noticeable differences for fans will be that they won’t get to compare Crabs’ stats with league rivals and the team won’t compete in a league championship tournament. However, Filar said the team management would likely organize an invitational tournament at the end of the season. Rossi, the team’s acting president, agreed that fans have nothing to fear. “We’re still gonna have a darn good year of baseball,” she said. “There’s no doubt about it in my mind.” The team’s first game is scheduled for May 31, a bit earlier than in past years. It’s not clear what will become of the Far West League. Rossi added that two other teams had recently agreed to join the league, but given the latest developments she’s not sure whether they’re still interested. She declined to identify the two teams. Meanwhile, the commissioner of the California Collegiate League thinks there may be room in his league for some crustaceans. The newly christened “North
Division” is just a working title, said Burns, “until we can somehow incorporate Humboldt and Marysville into the mix, because those are two really good operations that need to be in the California summer-ball mix. No matter how you mix it up they have to be there.” Joining a statewide league would likely require the Crabs to travel for away games, something that the organization has historically been reluctant to do because of the cost and logistical hardship of such long journeys. Between hotel rooms, a chartered bus and other expenses, a fourday team road trip can run about $12,000, according to Filar. The organization currently offers modest financial incentives to other teams to come play in Arcata. Still, Burns thinks California’s summer collegiate teams should be unified into a single league. “You would think at some point we all need to get on the same page and compete for a state title if we really want to give the players the best opportunity,” he said. “I think everybody understands that.” Maybe. On the other hand, Arcata summers wouldn’t be the same without Crabbies home games every weekend. For the team’s upcoming 70th season, at least, that’s where they’ll stay. ●
the week in WEed
The High Court By Ryan Burns
ou could argue that nine grownups who sit around all day in silky black robes always look ridiculous, but the U.S. Supreme Court looked especially foolish last week when it decided not to hear an appeal of the federal government’s classification of marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug — that is, a substance with no currently accepted medical use and with more potential for abuse than cocaine or meth. This in a country where 20 states and the nation’s capital have legalized medical cannabis, and despite more than 200 peer-reviewed scientific studies that have shown marijuana to be both safe and effective in relieving pain, nausea and the side effects of chemotherapy, among other applications. The San Francisco-based group Americans for Safe Access kindly asked the Drug Enforcement Administration to reclassify weed 11 years ago, and the agency took nine years to say “no.” In January, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., took a turn on the silly stage. It admitted that a 1999 report from the esteemed Institute of Medicine “does indeed suggest that marijuana might have medical benefits.” But in its 3-0 ruling the court found that the DEA (cough!) reasonably interpreted the study as a recommendation for more studies. Exhibiting what can only be described as willful blindness the court insisted, “Substantial evidence supports [the DEA’s] conclusion that such studies do not exist.” Riiiight. The truth is that such studies come out all the time, despite federal restrictions that hinder scientific research. For example, a new study published in the American Journal of Medicine found that smoking weed may help regulate blood sugar and prevent Type 2 diabetes. Another study, published in the Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology, found that chemical compounds in marijuana show promise in treating multiple sclerosis. And after listening to medical professionals, the state of Maine just passed a law allowing doctors to recommend marijuana as a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder.

Evidence abounds for marijuana’s effectiveness in treating everything from rheumatoid arthritis to digestive disorders to sleep apnea, HIV, Alzheimer’s and more. So why would the Supreme Court — a body that’s supposedly guided by reason and evidence — refuse to even consider the federal government’s ostrich-pose on the issue? It gives new meaning to “the highest court in the land.” Elsewhere: • Romania just became the 10th member of the European Union to legalize medical marijuana, and Switzerland just decriminalized possession of pot-for-fun. Also, did you know that growing, selling and consuming weed is entirely legal in, of all places, North Korea? • Denver, meanwhile, is still trying to figure out how to navigate legal weed. After opponents to a proposed marijuana tax started handing out free joints at rallies in Colorado, which legalized weed-for-fun last fall, the mayor of Denver said he’ll propose outlawing handouts of free pot in city parks. And the Denver City Council is considering an ordinance that could land people in jail for up to a year and cost them a $999 fine if they’re caught “openly” using marijuana in public. That would mean potentially getting busted if someone so much as smells your puff. • Are marijuana gardens destroying history? That was the provocative title of an Oct. 10 Times-Standard story by Thadeus Greenson, who examined how the county’s 4,000-plus marijuana farms may be obliterating Native American archaeological sites. A state Fish and Wildlife employee recently noticed shattered artifacts in the dirt of a grow operation. These included an arrowhead that turned out to be more than 1,000 years old. The story quoted him saying that the grow operation damaged a large archaeological site. “Now,” he said, “it’s just kind of a big jumbled mess.” ●

Stone Lagoon Revival
There used to be a sweet little campground at Stone Lagoon that you could boat to — the only one of its kind in Humboldt County, with six hideaway boat-in campsites across the water from the highway. Alas, in March 2011, the cashstrapped state park system closed it. Now a private tour operator, Kayak Zak’s, wants to re-open it, and owner Marna Powell is throwing a big shindig out there this weekend to raise money for the effort. In fact, Powell has been quietly applying private capital, with state park blessings, to revive other tourism amenities at the state-park-run portions of Stone Lagoon. The rustic visitor’s center on the shore was closed a couple of years until Powell took possession of it last June and made it Kayak Zak’s HQ. Powell says the deal was she could run her business there; she says she decided to revive the visitor center, and campground, on her own. The building was in bad shape. Powell booted out the rats, cleaned up the mold, fixed the broken stuff and moved out a bunch of junk that had piled up for years, she says. “You just cannot have a vacant building on the coast,” she says. “It is still a work in progress.” She says there’s lots of reasons the state park dubbed her — a for-profit business — the savior of an abandoned public space.

Mainly, she says, it’s because she “may be the only person with a weird enough background and relationships in the community who could have pulled it off.” Powell’s fundraiser to open the campground is 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Sunday, Oct. 20, at the Stone Lagoon Visitor Center, 115336 U.S. 101 in Trinidad just north of the Little Red Schoolhouse.

City Manager Mystery
Eureka City Manager Bill Panos submitted his resignation almost a month ago, and his final day was supposed to be Oct. 4. So why is the city council still talking about him in closed session? There was a city manager performance evaluation scheduled for closed session at the Oct. 1 meeting, with just three days left of his scheduled tenure. (His evaluations have been appearing on closed session agendas as far back as Aug. 20.) Next week’s meeting agenda? There it is again — a performance evaluation for a city manager who has supposedly left the building. What’s the deal? Eureka Mayor Frank Jager says Panos has

indeed left the building, and the items on next week’s agenda are strictly procedural. Jager says he put the items on the agenda per Councilmember Mike Newman’s request. The first item sounds like it stemmed from concerns Newman had over city council members going directly to the city manager individually, rather than giving him direction as a council. The second — the “performance evaluation” — is related to the search for the next city manager and what attributes the council is looking for, says Jager. ● GOVERNMENT / BY RYAN BURNS / THURSDAY, OCT. 10 AT 3:33 P.M.
Withering NCRA Indictment
Anyone who even casually follows the exploits of the North Coast Railroad Authority has seen a particularly absurd example of government folly — a state agency led by a cabal of evangelical cargo cultists with an unfunded mandate to resurrect an insolvent rail line. In recent years, two members of the agency’s board of directors have tried tactfully but persistently to suggest that the emperor is starkers. One of those, Humboldt County representative Bill Kier, resigned from the agency in May. The other, Marin County representative Bernard H. Meyers, announced yesterday that after six years on the board, he won’t be seeking reappointment. His resignation letter and an accompanying Q-and-A are, in a word, badass.

Has a renegade staff that’s willing to defy directives from its own board: Staff provides little, if any, follow-up to matters considered at Board meetings. On one occasion (an [Annie & Mary] trail Resolution), staff undid in the final document what the Board had expressly agreed to. Allows itself to be bilked by its own attorney: When discussing litigation, take into account that the advice you get to settle — or not — comes from someone who may benefit monetarily if you accept the advice. When you sue over the billboards along the Eureka-Arcata highway and

The lawyer and former Novato City Councilmember describes a public agency that: Is on the verge of bankruptcy: In a recent article ... Director [Allan] Hemphill was noted as raising the possibility of the NCRA filing a Chapter 9 bankruptcy. His concern is not inappropriate, and the Board should raise the issue for discussion as soon as possible. Virtually gave away the farm to its private contractor: The keystone agreement between NCRA and [private operator] NWP [Northwestern Pacific Railroad Co.] is the lease of September 2006. Can it be described as anything other than a lopsided, sweetheart deal? It allows NWP to unilaterally extend the lease term for a century, without any additional approval by NCRA. ... How much money does the Lease require NWP pay to the NCRA? Nothing, until NWP has a year in which it makes $5 million in net profits. When might that happen? It depends, but it is very possible to not occur this century. Acts as a black hole for taxpayer money: The lease requires NCRA to acquire and spend public funds without limitation. $68 million (per staff) have been expended to get 62 miles to Windsor; tens of millions will be needed to extend the line to Willits. Then hundreds of millions of dollars are estimated to rehabilitate the Eel River segment, after which further tens of millions are estimated for work in the Eureka area.

Meyers closes by saying the NCRA is in dire need of a top-to-bottom review of its actions and mandate by an impartial entity such as the state auditor and a joint legislative audit committee.

Show us Yer Growler!
Any growler will do, at any brewery — Lost Coast, Six Rivers, Redwood Curtain, you name it — come Jan. 1. That’s when Assemblymember Wes Chesbro’s growler bill goes into effect. A growler (shh, Kiwi!) is a glass beer vessel about 4-pints-hearty, in which beer connoisseurs and picky drunks enjoy refills of fresh-crafted local brews straight from a brewery. Current state law says a growler can only be used in the brewery where it was purchased. Ches’ new law, AB 647 — signed today by Gov. Jerry Brown, says a news release — scraps that old piece of prudery and allows a brewery to refill any growler as long as it slaps a new label on the bottle with its name, and the beer’s name, on it. The new label has to cover any old labels on the bottle. ● GOVERNMENT / BY RYAN BURNS / WEDNESDAY, OCT. 9 AT 4:02 P.M.
Guiding Principles Time-Lapse
Arguments at the county government level don’t get much more fundamental or important than the ongoing debate over the guiding principles in Humboldt County’s General Plan Update. In essence it’s an argument about priorities for future land use. In planning for the next 20-odd years do we want to emphasize environmental protections and productive resource lands by focusing development near existing services such as water and sewer? Or should we favor individual property rights, allowing landowners more freedom in choosing where to live and how to be stewards of the land? In last week’s issue we looked at the latest contentious revisions to those guiding principles. To catch up, go to www. northcoastjournal.com/blogjammin to find a list of the original principles, along with new versions drafted by members of the current majority on the Board of Supervisors.

Well, That’s Offputting
White, slimy nodules of tapioca-like substance oozing from your lovely freshcaught salmon. Yick. It’s a find only Walter Bishop would find delightful. Anyway — the Two Rivers Tribune reports that “Chinook salmon caught in the Klamath River were found infested with a white and egg-shaped parasite named Henneguya embedded in their muscle tissues.” The parasite is not harmful to people, the story reports. And how does it get in the fish in the first place? Says the TRT: “While at sea, the fish are subjected to sea lice that attach themselves. The sea lice eat the skin and blood of the fish, breaking their first layer of outer protection, which allows the parasite to enter the body.” The story notes that the lack of cleansing high river flows might have contributed to the spread of the parasites. Although the story doesn’t elaborate, it appears these parasites enter the fish in their freshwater phase, according to a report by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. ● GOVERNMENT / COMMUNITY / BY HEIDI WALTERS / THURSDAY, OCT. 10 AT 2:58 P.M.

Ruins Abandoned, unused, disintegrating – and starkly beautiful Story and photos by Grant Scott-Goforth
ictures of decay — abandoned structures slumping to ground, engulfed in flora or proudly, rustily erect — are a trope now, but that’s OK. They’re fascinating. They combine history, our reverence of engineering feats, our fears of death and erasure. We get to rubberneck at a slow moving train wreck — nature and time joining to show just how fleeting humanity’s grip on this world is. It’s ugly. It’s pretty. There’s color and light in all of that entropy. They call it “ruin porn” for a reason. Humboldt County may not have the allure of Detroit, Chernobyl or other vast abandoned areas that have become destinations for amateur and professional explorers and photographers. The “urban exploration” boom that draws people
to the shriveling Salton Sea and the catacombs of Paris is less popular here. But ruined Humboldt has its pilgrims. Their signatures are the overgrown trails to sites, a few seemingly abandoned online forums and the word-of-mouth community of graffiti artists, explorers and hobos. Here’s a small sample of Humboldt’s disused and forgotten structures. Relics of war, industry and community. We found far more than could be printed here. And there’s likely many we overlooked. But live vicariously for a moment and imagine what these places meant to someone, to the community, in the past. And get out and find some secret spots of your own.

Balloon Track The abandoned rail cars and engines on the Balloon Track harken to a time when rail connected the Humboldt Bay region to the rest of the nation. Now they’re a favorite for graffiti artists. A tall (and in places, breached) chain link fence surrounds the forlorn vehicles, with rusted wheels and shattered windows. In 2006, Security National purchased the property and removed one of the 13 boxcars abandoned on the land when the rail yard went out of use in the 1980s. A press release said Security National was committed to “turning the Balloon Track into a tremendous asset for Eureka.” Seven years later, several boxcars and four engines remain. In a December 2012 interview with radio station KINS, Security National owner Rob Arkley said he intends to sell them for scrap. “I’m going to go to war to get those out of there,” he said. continued on next page northcoastjournal.com • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013

Mad River Train Bridge This steel paean to the county’s former timber and rail industries stands firm, spanning the Mad River. The bridge — rusty and missing many of the wooden ties that support the rails — is still in better shape than the lines that extend from either side. Walk about 1,000 feet up the Mad River from Pump Station No. 4 to find it.
Downtowner Motel The Downtowner sat empty for more than a decade. Kitty-corner from the Eureka Inn, which also spent some years shuttered, the motel was ringed by a barbed wire fence several years ago — an attempt to keep squatters and others out (see the Journal cover article from Sept. 16, 2010, “The Town Downer”). Years of discussion about what to do with the property haven’t produced results yet, but Councilwoman Marian Brady told the Journal last month it’s a priority for her to see the Downtowner Motel restored.

Humboldt State University Annex There are likely many living Arcatans who were born in the second iteration of the Trinity Hospital. Built in 1944 after the original Trinity Hospital burned down, this one served the area until Mad River Community Hospital was built in 1972. The building, now owned by Humboldt State University and used briefly as the foreign language studies building, has all the hallmarks of a hospital: an amber-hued, diffusely lit chapel, curtain tracks in the ceilings of the old patient rooms and — most ominously — a morgue. HSU facilities director Traci Ferdolage wouldn’t let the Journal enter the basement, which houses the former morgue. When she offers a peek inside, black mold creeps four feet up the corridor walls, and a blitz of musty air rushes forth from the below-ground level. Ferdolage is no stranger to ghost stories. She said an otherwise skeptical contractor recently came to her with concerns about the noises he was hearing while inspecting the building. Campus police found
nothing, but returned when the contractor, growing less dubious of paranormal possibilities, complained again. This time, officers found evidence of a squatter. The building, with numerous ground-level windows, has the same issues with uninvited tenants as any abandoned building, Ferdolage said.

Loleta Tunnel Curving north out of downtown Loleta is the old Northwestern Pacific line, which punches through about 2,000 feet of Table Bluff. While the light of the far entrance is visible from the south end, the mouth of the tunnel is faintly ominous. We trudged into the dark, discovering that the other end is farther than it seems. Looking back at several points, the entrance was still much closer than the end, and the light at the end of the tunnel grew in size much more slowly than we’d expected. It was too dark to see the ground past the first hundred or so feet without artificial light. Lime deposits seeped out of the wet spots on the tunnel walls. Remains of a campfire cozied up with discarded alcohol bottles, clothing and paint cans. A slight, dusty-smelling cool breeze glided through the tunnel, with no echo to speak of. At the center of the tunnel, all was eerily quiet.

Sweasey Dam The remains of Sweasey Dam sit about five miles upriver from the Mad River Fish Hatchery. If you know the wide gravel bars of the Mad near Blue Lake, it’s hard to imagine that the river runs through a narrow gorge just a few miles upstream. Sweasey Dam was built in 1938 and provided water to Eureka before it was completely filled with debris in 1969. By the end of that year’s winter storm season, there were 2.4 million cubic yards of sand, logs and gravel plugging up the dam, according to an American Society of Civil Engineers report. The dam was dynamited in 1970. Now, only the high walls on the banks of the Mad remain. Twisted pieces of steel and rebar begin to appear in the river as you approach it from downstream.

The Navy cruiser has been all but claimed by the Pacific Ocean (who named that body of water anyway? Terrific Ocean would have been my vote) since running aground in 1917. Only a few jagged pieces of the boat — and a shoreside monument — are visible at low tide. The ship was beached attempting to pull free a submarine that ran aground on Samoa Beach in 1916. The submarine was later rescued intact, while the Milwaukee was abandoned and a pier was built to allow the Navy to strip the ship of its munitions and documents. l

Down and Dirty
Providing Water for Wildlife How not to screw it up By Genevieve Schmidt firstname.lastname@example.org
here’s little that irritates me more than going to the garden center and seeing an array of gorgeous, well-made bird baths that are all completely and utterly useless. It seems that the manufacturers of such things have never really researched or even given the most cursory amount of thought to what qualities a bird might actually like to see in a birdbath. It’s the same with ponds. Most commercially available ponds have steep, slick sides which make the water tough to access and limit the pond’s value to wildlife. Since providing water is one of the easiest ways that you can not only benefit wild creatures but attract them into your garden, it seems a no-brainer to take the time to get it right. After all, water isn’t just for drinking. Butterflies get valuable minerals and salts from puddling about in shallow, slightly muddy sections of water. Salamanders and newts, frogs and toads, and even dragonflies use water as shelter and breeding grounds during different parts of their life cycles. Here’s what you need to know to provide the best benefits to wildlife with your water sources.
Imagine for just a moment being as small as a bird or a frog, and consider how you would get in and out of your pond. Most commercial ponds have straight, slick sides that often have a lip over the top. This makes entry and exit a challenge, and completely eliminates the chance to step into a shallow and splash about while bathing. If you have a pond like this already, consider building up one side so there’s a little beach for birds and others to stand on and take a shallow dip. You could use large rocks and gravel to build up one side so that everyone can tiptoe in. A gently sloped entry starting at a very shallow depth (a quarter to a half inch) and slowly getting deeper is ideal. I mean, you can’t imagine a bird taking a bath in 3-foot-deep water, can you? It’s the same for visitors such as butterflies and dragonflies. Both prefer a shallow area with a few small rocks sticking up above the surface to land on. If you scatter a little bit of sand or mud between the cracks of your rocks, butterflies will not only be able to drink but also will be able to get the nutrient benefits from the minerals in the soil.

This isn’t an intuitive tip, but birds and insects have such small feet that the texture of most slippery birdbaths and fountains can make the difference between a space that’s usable or a spot they’ll have no choice but to ignore. Birds and pollinators such as bees simply can’t grip onto glass and other smooth surfaces. A roughened texture provides a place for them to grip while they drink and bathe. If you’ve already purchased a fountain or birdbath with an overly smooth texture, try adding rough stones and pebbles to the dish so birds and bees have a place to land and stand. You can even make this decorative by painting a couple

of the stones to personalize them. Fern Richardson’s book Small-Space Container Gardens has a great tutorial on how to do just that.
Splashing or trickling
If you love hummingbirds (and who doesn’t?), consider a trickling fountain or a gentle waterfall leading to your pond. Hummingbirds love to drink from small falling streams of water. Even the smallest urban or balcony garden can attract hummingbirds with a dual-tiered fountain and a few plants for the birds to perch on while they scope out the scene. Just make sure the water is more of a trickle than a rushing deluge. Again, imagine yourself the size of a hummingbird and think about the type of natural faucet you’d like to drink from. You don’t want them to feel in danger of being dashed to the rocks!
Though we may think of our garden as a peaceful and benign place, wildlife has to be constantly aware of what predators might be nearby. Ponds should be at least three feet deep in some areas to provide the best chances for frogs and other wildlife to hide and escape predators. Inside your pond, provide some shelves or ledges to nestle under, and at least a few plants to provide cover. Around the edges of the pond, it’s a great idea to put a variety of plants that will gently drape over the side and provide places for wildlife to sun themselves while still being able to leap into the pond at a moment’s notice. I often see frogs eating small garden insects in the vicinity of the pond, and thank goodness. Much as those little bitty flies are an important part of the ecosystem, I’d rather the frogs
eat them than have them end up in my cocktail! Even if you’re just providing a birdbath or fountain, it’s a good idea to make sure there are some trees or shrubs nearby that have an open view to the water source. If birds can land in a safe location and discern whether your cat is lying in wait, they’ll feel much more comfortable having a drink and a splash. This goes for balcony gardens, too. A small Japanese maple in a pot would make the perfect perch from which to scope out the joint.
Don’t forget winter
My last tip is a brief one: Further inland where water may stay frozen all day, don’t forget that birds and other wildlife still need to drink. If you can provide a heated birdbath or other water source through the winter, you’ll be doing a marvelous service for your local wildlife. l The wonderful thing about providing water for wildlife is that even if you’ve already got an existing pond, birdbath or fountain that has some flaws, it’s pretty easy to fix — and it’s well worth it. If you’ve read this far, I’m guessing you don’t go in for the sterile fields of mulch and rock that many people try to pass off as landscaping. Inviting wildlife to share your space is one of the most satisfying elements in any garden. l Genevieve Schmidt has written for Fine Gardening Magazine, Garden Design Magazine, the Christian Science Monitor and other publications.

Two New Owners for 3 Foods Café

By Jennifer Fumiko Cahill email@example.com
f you’ve been scrolling through Craigslist in hopes of buying 3 Foods Café in Arcata, you’re too late. New owners Jennifer Shipman and Laura Duttweiler beat you to it, and no, they didn’t buy it online. Escrow closed on Friday, and the place itself will only close (fingers crossed) from Oct. 21 to Oct. 24. Those few days will be a frenzy of renovation, including installing a new kitchen floor, a little painting, electrical work and setting up a new point-ofsale system. Local artist Augustus Clark is also whipping up some artwork for the restaurant, but overall the look will stay the same. “We want to respect the customers,” says Duttweiler. She and Shipman are
aware of the deep attachment some of the regulars have to the restaurant and its menu, so they won’t be turning the place or its menu upside-down. Most of the staff is staying on as well, including chefs Jessica Lovelady, Sean Bockman and Peter Jones, who only came aboard a month and a half ago from Folie Douce. There — you can un-clench your paper now. Shipman and Duttweiler have been thinking about going into business together since they met two years ago. While Duttweiler wasn’t a regular at 3 Foods, she had eaten at the restaurant over the years and heard it was for sale. When the price came down, Shipman says it seemed “like kismet.” The space was part of the appeal, and one long-term goal the women have
is to make the restaurant more family friendly with picnic tables outside and an area for children to play. (Parents: This means you might get to eat with both hands. Non-parents: This means you might have less silverware flying your way.) Duttweiler, also a mom, knows what a draw that can be. Both new owners have been waiting tables at 3 Foods once a week to cover open shifts — nothing new for either of them, since Shipman was a server for 12 years and Duttweiler has been working out front and in back at Cafe Brio since it opened. But the two say that working the floor with the staff has given them insight on how the place runs and what the customers want.
Shipman has already heard pleas to keep the “Dark and Gruesome” salad — it’s her favorite, too, so fans of the big pile of greens need not worry — and the chicken and waffles. For now, the pair is only planning tweaks to the menu, like offering more seasonal specials and doing more local sourcing. Shipman, who has a telecommuting IT job, says the farmers market is one of the reasons she lives here with her husband and daughter. Duttweiler says they’re looking to maintain the character of 3 Foods, and that they “want to do a spin on what’s already going on here. … It’s more like adopting than having a baby.” l

Burying the Needle On all the meters
f you thought this was the week you’d stay home and catch up on Trailer Park Boys, you were wrong. So wrong. Eat well and drink plenty of water because you’ve got a lot to do, Humboldt.
Thursday’s blues, hard rock and hiphop (and Watts)
Earl Thomas and Eddie Angel sit down for some “coffee-house style blues” at the Arcata Playhouse. Earl’ll tell stories from the road and Eddie’ll make his acoustic guitar sing. Soulful Jesi Naomi opens the show, which starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 advance, $15 at the door. A 10 on the grownup meter. Aesir, a new local band about which little information exists on the Internet other than that the band covers Zeppelin and Sabbath and does some original “high voltage electrifying rock music,” plays the Jambalaya, around 9 p.m., one supposes. This show is 21 and over. Potentially a 7 on the relivingyour-youth meter. GRiZ’s The Rebel Era Tour featuring Two Fresh and Anvil Smith lands at the Arcata Theatre Lounge. This is a big deal hip-hop show — GRiZ combines passion and skill to make melodies bigger and better and beats funkier and more awesome. Also, saxophone. Very cool. Two Fresh is comprised of twin brothers Kendrik and Sherwyn
WHO: Zach Deputy WHEN: Friday, Oct. 18, 8 p.m. WHERE: Arcata Theatre Lounge TICKETS: $25
Nicholls — get it? — who add kickass drummer Colby Buckler to their stage shows. They’ve compelled audiences to dance at fests across the U.S. and continue ascending up the hip-hop ladder as if summoned from above. Anvil Smith is Russian and reputed to be “nothing short of astounding.” Should be hours of excellence. Doors open at 9:30 p.m. with happy hour food and beverage prices until 10:30 p.m. $20 limited advanced tickets are at People’s Records, DTA, Wildberries and The Works. This show is 21 and over. A 9.5 on the make-you-sweat meter. And, oh yeah, Reggie Watts is at the Van Duzer. The show is sold out, but if you can find a miracle, do it. An easy 10 on the I-saw-him-when meter.
Friday’s soul and funny folk
The Soul Spectacular Tour, in which Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe presents a Ray Charles Boogaloo Dance Party with special guest Zach Deputy and The Cosmic Horns, erupts at the Arcata Theatre Lounge. Quick history: Denson first came to prominence as a member of Lenny Kravitz’s band, then, in 1993, joined DJ Greyboy in creating Greyboy Records and released the legendary acid jazz staple, Freestylin. Out of that collaboration, Denson formed The Greyboy Allstars, which spread “West Coast Boogaloo” worldwide. Denson’s been emphasizing vocals and adding funk, R&B and hip-hop elements all the way to his latest release, Brother’s Keeper, which continues his artistic evolution fusing sounds from rock to funk to Afrobeat. For his part, Deputy serves up soulful rhythm and blues, with flavors of Al Green, Taj Mahal and Stevie Wonder. Doors opens at 8 p.m., cost is $25 with advanced tickets available at Wildberries Marketplace, Peoples Records, The Works and the ATL. $20 limited advanced tickets available at the ATL’s website. 21 and over. An 8 on the date night meter — a 9+ if you get dinner at Tomo or Renata’s first. Singer/songwriter Christine Lavin cracks people up with her smart, funny original songs and giddy stories at the Arcata Playhouse. Fans of witty, insightful, silly folk artists, rejoice! Claudia Russell opens with Bruce Kaplan on mandolin. Russell has shared stages with Dave Carter and Tracy

Anybody else a little burned out on CG and 3D at the movies? Feel like you’re one Dolby sound check away from a burst eardrum? It might be time for a special effects break. The ArMack Orchestra fundraiser at Arcata High on Thursday at 7 p.m. is just the ticket ($5). The students are showing a double feature of Two Tars and Sherlock Jr. and playing the live soundtrack like it was done in the heyday of silent film. Silent? No color? Yes and yes. And you’re going to love it. Two Tars is about a couple of fellas who get stuck in a traffic jam along with their dates. Road rage simmers to the surface and drivers start vandalizing one another’s cars. Don’t pretend you can’t relate. Sherlock Jr. stars Buster Keaton, who was doing his own stunts before it was cool or properly insured. In this one, he goes amateur detective in the name of love. Pale and deadpan, he takes plunges and pratfalls that would make Jackie Chan wince. That’s some movie magic right there. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

night sky, you’ll wish you were out at a barn dance celebrating. And you could be! Blue Lake Harvest Days kick off under Dell’Arte’s big top tent with Colin Vance and the Striped Pig String Band. Just mosey over to the Blue Lake Business Park at 7 p.m. and follow the sound of caller Tony Mates out of Portland. Once you’ve recovered on Saturday, there’s the Mad River Grange Harvest Fest. Kids can carve a pumpkin (BYOP), press some apples, get their faces painted and whip up a scarecrow while you procure some pulled pork and pumpkin pie. Back at the business park, there’ll be artist booths, ghost tours, an interactive mural and pony rides. Pony rides! Ahem. At 3:30 p.m. you can enter the Pumpkin Chuck Contest, which requires no explanation but possibly a good arm. Get back under that tent for the kids’ concert at 4:30 p.m. and the Story Howl at 7 p.m., when local yarn spinners take the stage and get spooky in the moonlight.

Phillips thrills, Machete is dull filmland
By John J. Bennett email@example.com
CAPTAIN PHILLIPS. Director Paul Greengrass has a dead-accurate, razoredged sense of story. One could say he makes action movies (the second and third Bourne installments, Green Zone), but that doesn’t quite get it. He distills the essential elements of large-scale conflict into absorbing, often impossibly intense human dramas. Despite taking on big stories about big subjects, his work always carries an air of intimacy and smallness that amplifies its themes. Captain Phillips uses as vast a canvas as anything on Greengrass’ resume, but he and star Tom Hanks boil it down to the essentials, yielding a deeply involved, compelling study in adversity and vulnerability. Captain Phillips is based on the real-life April 2009 hijacking of the MV MaerskAlabama, an American cargo ship en route from Oman to Kenya. Four very committed Somali pirates (all between the ages of 17 and 19, I’ve lately learned) successfully board the ship, taking Captain Phillips (Hanks) and a couple of the crew hostage. The remaining 20 or so crew members manage to evade capture, eventually shutting down all of the ship’s power systems and nabbing the pirate leader. An attempt to trade him for Phillips goes awry, and the captain ends up sharing the close quarters of a lifeboat with his captors. As this stalemate wears on, the story becomes a study in foils: Phillips, a hardnosed Yankee family man, contrasted against Abduwali Muse (Barkhad Abdi), a slight but ferocious go-getter with warlord bosses breathing down his neck. The U.S. Navy establishes a presence onscene, attempting to negotiate a peaceful resolution as relations within the pirate

group begin to erode. Phillips tries to reason with Muse, who sees returning to Somalia with his American hostage as the only viable solution. The situation can’t help but end badly for at least one of the parties involved. The resolution is a matter of historical record now, but the movie is so charged, so riveting, that I’d rather not spoil the surprise for those who don’t know how it ends. True to life or not, Captain Phillips is top-shelf action-drama through and through. It bears all of Greengrass’ cinematic fingerprints: a balance of thoughtfully composed static shots and visceral, frenetic handheld camera; a structure of constantly escalating risk; fluid but forceful editing; an exploration of the human ability to adapt to trying circumstances. If you like what he’s done in the past, you’ll enjoy this. But even those who could take or leave his earlier work may well be won over by Hanks’ performance here. I was concerned initially that his movie-stardom would distract from the harsh realism of the story. But he’s Tom Hanks for a reason, and that reason is that he is very, very good at what he does. He may not always choose the most adventurous roles to take on, but in Captain Phillips he gives a truly open, vulnerable, startling performance. The movie satisfies on any number of levels, but Hanks does some career-best work here, and it is captivating. PG13. 134m. MACHETE KILLS. Does anyone else remember the genesis of this character? Machete seemed such a promising prospect when he was just a fake movie trailer in the intermission between Robert Rodriguez’s Planet Terror and Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof. We were so full of hope back then… Machete debuted in 2010 and immediately revealed that the titular character worked better within the confines of a one-minute trailer. The movie had some fun moments of ultra-violence and gratu-
itous nudity, but its nods to exploitation cinema — without which it would not exist — were too imitative, not inventive enough. Compared to this sequel, though, the first installment seems like a masterwork. Machete Kills opens with our eponymous hero (played by the great Danny Trejo) framed for murder and weapons trafficking. He’s saved from the noose by a red-phone call from the President of the United States (Carlos Estevez, wink), and it’s off to Mexico to deal with an ever-expanding, increasingly disappointing underworld that includes a murderous madam, a revolutionary leader with multiple personalities, a sinister arms manufacturer with a Star Wars fetish, and a host of other incidental characters. (There’s less fun to be had than the description would lead you to believe). Co-writer/director Rodriguez attempts so much with Machete Kills that it was bound to fail. As the wafer-thin plot blows down the road, he piles ever more predictable twists and hastily sketched caricatures. The action set pieces, some of which could have been pretty cool, come and go with inadequate setup and lazy execution. Rodriguez made his name in the business by creating a big effect with modest resources, but here he inverts the formula and it blows up in all our faces. I wanted to like Machete Kills, I really did. And to be fair, it has its moments, but they’re too few and too far between. Tragically — almost unbelievably — this movie is deeply boring. R. 104m. — John J. Bennett

Thatched roofs of an Akha village in northern Thailand. Photo by Sputnikcccp/Wikimedia Commons
Embellishing English By Barry Evans
nce when the world was young — 1978 to be more precise — I headed out alone from the northern Thai city of Chiang Rai, fancying myself an anthropologist on the verge of discovering new peoples in the mythical “Golden Triangle” region. So much for the hubris of youth. Turned out I was walking into a wellestablished tourist trap where even the romantic name “Golden Triangle” (the region in which Thailand, Myanmar and Laos meet) had been bestowed by the US State Department in reference to what had been a thriving opium industry. I did spend a few happy days in the highlands with Akha people, many of whom (following the linguistic conceit of a surprising number of Star Trek aliens) spoke excellent English. The hill-tribe Akha are comparative newcomers to the region. Originally from the Yunnan region of southern China, they migrated south into mainland Southeast Asia (aka Indochina) over a century ago. About 100,000 of them live in the Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai provinces of northern Thailand today. The Akha are often mentioned in popular books on linguistics for their curious use of adjectives, specifically how “very” takes different forms depending on what they’re referring to. Very deep, for instance, is “kha” deep. Very big is “lo” big. In the same vein, and lacking an actual word for “very,” the Akha say “tio” clean, “dù” blue and “d” white for very clean, very blue and very white.
Which isn’t quite as exotic as it may sound at first blush, when you consider the many variants of “very” in English. We routinely and automatically add playful little baroque emphases to many of our most common adjectives. We typically don’t say, “The hitchhiker was very wet,” we say, “He was soaking wet.” After the long hike, I wasn’t “very tired,” I was “dog-tired.” Similarly: bone dry, drop-dead gorgeous, brim full, pug ugly, goddam awful, piping hot, scot-free, feather light, dead quiet, pencil thin, pitch black, snow (lily, pearly) white, brand new, dirt cheap, sky high, freezing cold, crystal clear, fighting fit ... I’m sure you can come up with some of your own. These examples are all the easy one-word add-ons, excluding such fullblooded metaphors we characteristically employ. When’s the last time you said, “She’s very sharp”? Didn’t you really say, “She’s sharp as a tack”? Note that these embellishments don’t really add to the meaning: “very ugly” and “pug ugly” mean pretty much the same thing, the latter being slightly stronger perhaps. It’s just that we all love language — it’s our primary social medium, so we do more than express “just the facts, ma’am” when we want to add emphasis. We’re not just language speakers, we’re language players. l Barry Evans (barryevans9@yahoo. com) hopes you didn’t find the above deadly dull.
