Move On Editor: I have followed with interest the controversy regarding Dan Johnson. I don’t know him personally but I was pleased to see that you ran an article on him so as to get his side of the story (“Meet Dan Johnson,” Oct. 10). While I would be the first to agree that plagiarism is wrong, I find it hilarious that not one letter printed in your Oct. 17 edition was in support of Dan Johnson, rather it was further piling on, including a letter from someone who claims to have been bullied by Mr. Johnson in grade school. Shades of the Mitt Romney bullying story that was pulled in the last presidential campaign. How low can we sink? Mr. Johnson may not be properly apologetic enough for you. I personally believe that his apologies may lack something due to the perception of his critics. I don’t know Mr. Johnson’s politics but I would venture to say to his critics, he appears to be another rich, successful Republican businessman. In other words, guilty as charged and not to be forgiven! Enough already! I just bet that every single one of the people who wrote letters scolding Mr. Johnson voted for the candidacy of Barack Obama and Joe Biden. Do these same people know about Mr. Biden’s past history of plagiarism? Do they even care? Mr. Johnson is a school board member. Mr. Biden is vice president of the United States. Get some perspective, and as they say, “move on.” Kathleen Essa, Bayside Editor: “I didn’t even know what the fuck plagiarism was.” No shit, Dan. The point is that you know what plagiarism is now, but appear not to give a damn. Truly exceptional people don’t stand

static and trumpet their accomplishments; they also know how to admit their faults with grace. You have not done that. Instead, you’ve made “yeah-but” justifications and blown off detractors with the time-honored middle school retort when caught red-handed: “You’re just jealous!” Not so, Dan. I have a life I consider a success, too, and I not only don’t begrudge you your successes, I say that you should enjoy the fruits of you labor to the fullest. But I stand firm in my belief that you made a mistake at the Arcata High commencement, and that you continue to compound that mistake in the most egregious way by making excuses for your actions. You could have served as a wonderful role model to students by demonstrating that the bigger person shows humility when caught in a blunder. Instead, you’ve become an example of how to make a bad situation worse. On the bright side, you’ve provided local educators with a fantastic object lesson when teaching their students about the scourge of intellectual thievery. You may be Superman or you may be Lex Luthor; I’ve never met you and so cannot say, and frankly don’t care. If my students perpetrate plagiarism in their work, I cannot weigh their relative character qualities when holding them accountable. The consequences fall equally hard on the plagiarizer whether she is a brilliant honors student or he is a lazy ne’er-do-well. Either way, they must face the consequences of their actions. You’re busted, Dan. Do the right thing. Step down and move on. Carla Baku, Eureka Editor: That was a subtle hatchet job Ryan Burns did on Dan Johnson. Several years ago I opposed (in print) the developer’s over the top multi-use project for the old Roger’s Garage site opposite Jacoby Creek School. It included

A HUMBOLDT GEM Two homes on seven private acres

three tri-story buildings, 90 parking spaces, shops, apartments and two schools! It was OK’d by Tom Conlon of the city of Arcata despite or because it would be a wedge development which would bust open the north end of Bayside for further commercialization, which is the very reason I loathed it. Even with my objections to that project, I think Dan Johnson deserved a more balanced published interview. The last words in an article often carry the most weight. It is abhorrent that Johnson lies so often and that he’d sooner cripple the school board than face the probable humiliation of resigning. But a little more digging on Burns’ part might have unearthed multiple Dan Johnson kindnesses to offset the darkness so well documented at the end of the interview. That would have provided the balance I look for in Journal articles. Patricia Zephyr Markowitz, Bayside Editor: Thanks to Ryan Burns for another thoughtful, well-crafted and morally significant cover story.


I knew nothing about Dan Johnson’s roots, his prodigious energy and enterprise from an early age, or that he was the guy in that recent plagiarism flap. The cover picture recalls a recent president, but the enormous difference between Mr. Johnson and “W” is that our neighbor really did build his empire out of wit, sweat and a sharp eye for the main chance — rather than college, club and political connections. However, there is an unfortunate similarity, too. Each seems to be unable to acknowledge — even to himself — when he has crossed that line that delimits decent civil behavior. Plagiarism is the sin committed in stealing someone’s intellectual work; notably contemptible when done to snatch money, snag glory or grab an unearned grade. The students were quite properly sensitive to the subject. A wiser head, (say, a teacher or board member?) might have suggested to Mr. Johnson when the issue arose that an apology on the order of “Hey, I wasn’t bucking for a grade here — I just wanted to tell my daughter and her classmates continued on next page

(Particularly if the school people had thought to de-escalate by explaining the distinction between actual academic plagiarism and colloquial fair use.) But apparently this guy can’t back down gracefully. “I’m a freakin’ winner, man.” His smarmy “apology” to the school board appears to be of a piece with his inability even to recall his non-mutually-satisfactory business and legal relationships.

Straw-vote Gang of Four


orget it, Humboldt County. Since Estelle Fennell and Rex Bohn were seated on the Board of Supervisors last year, joining Virginia Bass and Ryan Sundberg — all elected with the help of the same deep pockets of money — the direction of good planning and land use in this county has gone from first-gear forward to reverse. And there’s almost nothing you can do about it. Week by painful week, through the now relatively fast-moving General Plan Update, this super majority has been marching to the orders of real estate developers, homebuilders, and specifically a private corporation called Humboldt Coalition for Property Rights (HumCPR) — a group with a secret membership list. In my June 13 publisher’s column, I chastised this Gang of Four for dramatically altering the General Plan’s guiding principles — last adopted in 2004 after a lengthy public hearing process. This year, led by Supervisor Fennell, the board revised the guiding principles more to the liking of her former employer, HumCPR, over a weekend. A vote was held and passed that Monday with little public input. When the county supervisors received angry pushback from you, the public, they took a step back and scheduled a second, future meeting for the end of summer. They also reassured the public that it was “just a straw vote” anyway — you know, one where your fingers are crossed behind your back and you can always change your mind. Since then, they’ve revised Fennell’s revisions a bit, and revised them again. (Since when are guiding principles so fluid, so changeable? It’s like going to a church that keeps changing its beliefs.) Right along with these revisions of the guiding principles this summer have been other straw votes on the actual, concrete General Plan policies — the rules that will be applied to land use and planning. The General Plan policies and the guiding principles are being

revised at the same time? Am I the only one who finds that strange? I had a sliver of hope after a rare evening meeting on Sept. 23. I had hoped that the Gang of Four actually listened to the public regarding those guiding principles — the ones most of us supported in 2004 and still believe today: that development should take place where we already have infrastructure; that we want an orderly pattern of land use and to discourage conversion of resource lands to other uses; that we should provide for sufficient developable land for affordable housing and have actionable plans for infrastructure; that we should protect scenic beauty; and that we should protect agriculture and timberland from increased subdivision. But what happened after that Sept. 23 meeting? The Gang of Four slipped back into a familiar pattern of listening more carefully to HumCPR’s advice, and less carefully to individuals and groups like the Resource Land Working Group. So what exactly is this Resource Land Working Group? Some lefties from Arcata? Well, no, not exactly. They are our timber companies, the Farm Bureau, the Buckeye Conservancy and others — those who are trying to hold onto and preserve agricultural and timberland for the future. Twice, during recent months, the Board of Supervisors had a room full of farmers asking that agricultural-exclusive lands be kept at 60-acre minimum while the Humboldt Association of Realtors and the Northern California Association of Home Builders lobbied hard for them to be reduced down to 20-acre minimum. In the end, the board agreed to 60 acres — but the Gang of Four clearly couldn’t understand why those farmers wouldn’t want smaller parcels. Never mind that unless you’re a dope grower, the ability to farm profitably starts with the ability to acquire farmland at prices that can be financed based on the agricultural potential of the land. Not speculative real estate or subdivisions. The same goes for timberland.

And, for the record, most of us in Humboldt sincerely believe that new developers should pay their fair share for infrastructure and services to these parcels being created. Why did these four supervisors strip that specific language out of these General Plan policies? To appease their “supporters” whose money they will need to get re-elected? My hopes were dashed for good at an Oct. 7 GPU meeting. As reported in the Journal (“Disputed Principles,” Oct. 10), Sally MacDonald, the executive director of the HumCPR, urged the board to go back yet again to guiding principle No. 4. Please, she said, “have it be incredibly less restrictive!” And Julie Williams, speaking on behalf of the Northern California Association of Home Builders, called principle No. 4 “more dangerous than a cannon!” Supervisor Bass happily obliged. She made the motion to strike out words which would focus development where we already have services and to discourage conversion of resource lands to other uses. This fluid value system of the current board of supervisors will ultimately manifest itself in the adoption of all these straw votes at once when they adopt the new General Plan. The straw votes will become real in one fell swoop because this board has its collective mind made up by the ones who brought them to the prom. Is there anything we can do at this point? Let’s set a clock for June 3, 2014 — the date of the next primary election. Bass and Sundberg are up for re-election. We need candidates in each of those districts who better understand our collective value system, what we all value about living in Humboldt County and what we want to protect — not just the values and interests of the secret members of a certain property rights group.

Paper Power


riday, 2:02 p.m. A bearded man wearing wire-framed glasses breezes out of the Arcata Police Department. The man wears a dark purple shirt with an awkwardly mended sleeve and a gray fleece vest. He’s carrying a sheaf of papers recording recent events in the city’s crime continuum. He plops the printed stack atop a nearby refuse receptacle and begins to riffle through ’em, looking for juicy tidbits. This is Kevin L. Hoover, former editor of the Arcata Eye, which closed at September’s end. Hoover’s ex-

plaining the genius he brings to his renowned weekly police log, which now runs in the Mad River Union. “I tend to look for the more interesting or lighthearted ones, or those with poetic potential,” he says. “I’m not a stenographer.” Not everything makes it into Hoover’s log. He never derives comedy from human tragedy. That said, Arcata’s police records are rich with material. From the Oct. 9 Union — the paper’s second edition: “1:51 p.m. A white pickup truck on Union

Street hosted four cannabis-medicated souls in its bed, the pipe seen passing from hand to hand. Stopped on D Street, all but one were released on foot. One DUI suspect went to jail via the hospital; his bed, bud and a bongmobile was towed.” Hoover says his creative approach makes repetitive crimes — like “bongo upheavals on the plaza” — more engaging. “The thing about the police log is that so much of what people do is based on short-term exigency,” he says. “‘I’m going to steal tips off the bar and get arrested in five minutes. But I’m going to do it anyway, or go in and chug some tequila and be arrested.’ It’s all about short-term gratification.” As we walk the couple blocks between police headquarters and the Mad River Union’s new office in the Jacoby’s Storehouse building, Hoover describes how he ended up in Arcata in 1985. While working at a Radio Shack in Hayward, Hoover read an Arcata-related snippet in National Lampoon. The story, lifted from the Arcata Union, described vandalism involving curdled dairy products and the cranial orifices of William McKinley’s statue on the plaza. Hoover came for a visit and liked what he saw. Hoover transferred to Arcata’s Radio Shack and eventually landed a production job at the Arcata Union, which gasped its last in 1995. One day, strapped for time, his editor asked Hoover to write the police log. Final issues of the Arcata Eye sold for a buck around town and could be picked up free at Humboldt State University. The paper’s look — from its creepy eyeball logo to miasmic modular layout — made it the second-quirkiest paper I’ve encountered. (First place goes to Piss Clear, Black Rock City’s also-now-defunct paper of record.) Since 1854, Hoover says, residents of Arcata have had some type of news publication. “There’s always been an office where the average schmuck could walk in and complain … or bring in a photo of his kid,” Hoover says. “I didn’t want to be the end of that.” But he couldn’t see how to keep the Eye open. The paper was scheduled to close in February 2014. Then a plan to mate the Eye with the McKinleyville Press was concocted over lunch at Humboldt Brews. Mixing metaphors made sense. Hoover and Press editor Jack Durham worked together two decades ago at the Arcata Union, where Durham had been news editor. After the Arcata Union closed its doors, Durham started the McKinleyville Press. He crafted the Press masthead using discarded bits of type rescued from the Arcata Union’s Dumpster. For its nearly 900 editions, the Press was a one-man show with Durham as publisher, editor, reporter, page designer, ad sales guy and delivery dude. Durham credits contributors with making the paper possible.

Like the Eye, the Press also stopped publication at September’s end. The first edition of the Mad River Union landed in the McKinleyville Press’ old news boxes on Oct. 2. As a journalism educator, I’ve endured endless speculation regarding news media’s future. Which is digital and online. Delivered to mobile devices. With pay walls or micropayments or subscription apps. In these circles, the word “newspaper” — as in soy ink on newsprint — is synonymous with “corpse.” A few years back, media monstrosities tossed around the term “hyperlocal” and hired (often inexperienced) community reporters to do neighborhood inserts built from puff pieces and pet photos. When these insipid sections were delivered free to nonsubscribers, folks called to complain about litter on their driveways. The Mad River Union’s not that kind of hyperlocal. Here’s why this might work: The Union’s content is generated locally. No Associated Press wire reports. Durham and Hoover say they’re often the only reporters covering local meetings in Arcata, McKinleyville and Trinidad. The two men possess encyclopedias of institutional knowledge. Readers are freakishly loyal. Advertisers are supportive. The Oct. 9 edition bulged with two sections of content, ads and inserts. Durham had a hard time fitting 1,700 papers into his Scion to mail to subscribers. “We’re idealists, but pragmatic,” Hoover says. In the Mad River Union’s new office, an eye-catching slogan’s posted on the back of an iMac: “Read a fucking book.” The space is larger than former offices of either Durham or Hoover, who’d been upstairs in a poorly lighted closet. “I like it dark and gloomy,” Hoover says. His corner of the new office features numerous assemblage pieces — bugs and (plastic) body parts — by Arcata outsider artist Brian Sproul. Durham’s wall sports a framed first edition of the McKinleyville Press and another newspaper announcing Elvis’ death. Film cameras collected from yard sales and thrift shops rest on a shelf. Durham hasn’t had time to try them out. The Union staff looks forward to devoting less attention to getting the biz off the ground and more to the paper itself. “When we are able to focus, it’s going to roar,” Hoover says.

– Deidre Pike Deidre Pike’s best job in print journalism ended when she graduated from college and had to quit editing and reporting for the student newspaper. She envies Durham and Hoover who’ve figured out a way to keep the print gig fun for decades. She doesn’t envy their workload.

High, Pacific Coast High, Northern Humboldt Community Day School, Six Rivers Charter School and Riverbend Education Program. As 55-year-old Brian Lovell sees it, some fresh blood would be good. Lovell is an Indiana transplant who moved to the area 1979 to attend Humboldt State and never left. While earning a single-subject teaching credential and a master’s in English, Lovell worked in after-school and preschool programs. After graduating he returned to that work, eventually finding his way to the Arcata Elementary School District, where he’s been the director of Extended Day Programs for more than two decades. Lovell lives in McKinleyville with his wife, a kindergarten teacher at Loleta Elementary, and his 15-year-old daughter, a sophomore at Arcata High. His 18-year-old daughter, an Arcata High graduate, is on a year-long exchange in Germany. Lovell’s a cheerful guy, with warm continued on next page


oter enthusiasm for school board elections is typically pretty low — unless your board happens to have a raging plagiarism scandal. Such is the case in the Northern Humboldt Union High School District, where board members have spent the past four months dealing with fallout from fellow trustee Dan Johnson’s plagiarized speech at Arcata High School’s graduation ceremony. The incident has led to contentious board meetings, accusations of Brown Act violations and, on Sept. 10, a 3-1 board vote asking for Johnson’s resignation, which he has refused to give. The storyline adds drama to the Nov. 5 election. Will voters prove sympathetic to embattled incumbents Dana Silvernale, Mike Pigg and Colleen Toste? Or will they opt for a clean slate with challengers Brian Lovell and Mark Suchanek? The district encompasses Arcata and McKinleyville high schools as well as Tsurai

continued from previous page eyes and a bushy white mustache that frames his easy smile when he talks about family and work. So it’s a little surprising to hear the hardness that creeps into his voice when he brings up the Johnson controversy. The blow-up inspired Lovell to attend school board meetings and get serious about running for a seat, he said. Incensed with Johnson’s speech, Lovell wrote letters to the Arcata Eye and McKinleyville Press calling on the local businessman to resign. So far that position seems to be working well for him: He’s raised enough money to print festive red, white and blue yard signs and is endorsed by the Humboldt County Democratic Central Committee. But Lovell says he’s not running strictly because of Johnson controversy. He feels his years spent steeped in the intricacies of the Arcata Elementary School District have helped him develop skills that would be useful to the board. “While I was at the board meetings this summer I realized, hey, this is what I do at work. They are asking questions that are just routine for me,” he said. “School finance is obviously very complicated, and while I don’t pretend to be an expert I do have a pretty good grasp on how the budgets work.” Lovell says there are some big issues facing the district, like managing Measure Q bond funds and the changeover to Common Core testing, a new set of national education standards focused on technology, critical thinking and problem solving set to take effect next year. He also has some pet projects he’d like to work on, such as building up the district’s arts programs and finding a way to fully finance the College and Career Center at Arcata High while bringing a similar program to McKinleyville. Mark Suchanek, meanwhile, said the Johnson controversy had nothing to do with his decision to run. The 53-yearold says his deep ties to McKinleyville and its high school could help broaden the board’s perspective. Born in the seaside town, Suchanek graduated from McKinleyville High in 1978 and after living for a few years in Arcata and Eureka he returned and built his house on the property where he grew up. His two sons, now in their late 20s, also graduated from McKinleyville High, and his wife worked for several years as the principal’s secretary. In recent years, Suchanek has been volunteering to run the scoreboard at basketball and football games. He isn’t running on a particular platform, but if elected he said he would emphasize the value of extracurricular activities. “I think a lot of students stay in school

10 North Coast Journal • Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013 •

because of those activities,” he said. “Looking back, I played sports, and I know for a lot of the guys I went to school with, things like baseball and football were what kept them in school. That’s the same for programs like drama and band.” Suchanek twice put his name in for vacant seats: once in 2008 after Shane Brinton’s election to the Arcata City Council (Johnson was selected instead) and again in 2011 following the death of longtime board member Sari Toste (whose daughter Colleen Toste was tapped as her replacement). This time around, Suchanek said his motivation is no different. “My main reason for running is just to give choices. I think I have a common sense approach.” For incumbent Mike Pigg, the election represents a chance to move past the Johnson uproar and get back to business. The 49-year-old Arcata native and former triathlete admits that it took some armtwisting from a former board member to get him involved back in 2005, but it’s a job he has grown to love. Pigg said he doesn’t come to the meetings with his own agenda. “I am there to listen to the community and their concerns and input and listen to the administration, staff and students and support their good decisions,” he said. While enthused by what the board has been able to accomplish during his tenure — he points to Measure Q, the $25.8 million bond measure approved by district voters in 2010 to upgrade facilities at McKinleyville and Arcata high schools — Pigg is also frank about the fact that the blowback from Johnson’s speech has made things turbulent. “I feel that the papers really blew things out of proportion,” he said. “I think the board has done a good job up to this point, better than we have [been] made out to be. The whole issue was way over-dramatized.” At the Sept. 10 board meeting, Pigg was visibly uncomfortable joining the 3-1 majority to ask for Johnson’s resignation, and even though Johnson has refused to oblige, Pigg said it’s time to leave the issue behind. Serving on the school board was never part of McKinleyville-native Colleen Toste’s plan, either. But when your mother is dying of cancer and asks you to take on the job that meant the world to her — well, that’s a hard thing to say no to, Toste said. Toste stepped into her mother’s 17-yearold board member shoes in December 2011 and the experience has been something of a whirlwind. A big chunk of Toste’s two years of service has been spent getting up

to speed. Toste said that, if re-elected, she wants to put her background in marketing to use for the board. “I would really like to look at how we communicate with the public,” said Toste, who earned a degree in the field from Santa Clara University and worked in Humboldt Bank’s marketing department before it was bought out by Umpqua Bank in 2004. “People always want more information.” As an example, Toste said she wants to ensure that district residents are kept up to date on how Measure Q funds are being allocated. “At this point I feel really wellequipped to serve,” she said. “Especially in the last four months, it’s safe to say that I’ve received my own education on the role of board members.” Much of that education came while navigating the murky waters in the wake of Johnson’s speech. She said there’s been a lot of misunderstanding about the board’s actions this summer, and she worries that will be reflected at the polls. Looking forward, Toste believes the best thing for the district will be time. Dana Silvernale agrees. The 66-yearold Mattole Valley Charter School special education teacher was the trustee who asked to have the Johnson issue listed as an action item on the Sept. 10 agenda. “And it made me pretty sad, but I felt that some action was needed,” she said. “We couldn’t just ignore what was being said.” Like Pigg, Silvernale feels local media inflamed the issue. “The papers were blaming the school board for inaction, but then we took action and made a statement and were accused of coddling Dan,” she said. “The lines just got so blurred.” The only incumbent not born and raised in the area, Silvernale is also the only incumbent actively campaigning for re-election. Unlike Pigg and Toste, she has a long, specific list of things she wants to get done. “I have the insight of 24 years of experience in teaching. ... They just don’t have the same experience.” Silvernale’s goals for a second term include revising the district’s disciplinary policy to emphasize preventive measures over punishment, improving support for at-risk children, initiating monthly study sessions to track chronic absences, creating a unifying vision for the board and continuing to improve the quality of school lunches. As for the Johnson controversy, Silvernale said, “People are paying attention now. I guess we will see what that means on Nov. 5.” l

Organizers are counting on an assessment measure to fund Fieldbrook’s snazzy new firehouse. Photos by Amy Barnes

Building on Faith With fingers firmly crossed, Fieldbrook volunteers raise the roof on a new firehouse By Amy Barnes


very day but Sunday, pickup trucks congregate outside Fieldbrook’s Volunteer Fire Department. Workers hang from the firehouse roof, demolish walls, climb scaffolding and mix concrete. It’s like a barn raising — a testament to what can be accomplished when a community works together. The project has been a long time coming. Firefighter and contractor Gene Callahan was first asked to expand Fieldbrook’s firehouse in the 1980s. With retirement on the horizon, and a keen appreciation for life’s mercurial tendencies, Callahan recently approached the department. “Let’s fish or cut bait,” he recalls telling them. “Right now I have the energy. I have the willpower. Do you guys want me to do this?” They did, and so the department launched into the $330,000 remodel, well before voter approval of November’s tax assessment measure, which would fund the renovations. “I knew they needed this firehouse worse than anything,” Callahan said last week. “And I love this community. And the only way I knew I could do it was to offer my services for free. We needed this so bad, and it was never gonna happen. It’s not easy, let me tell you; it’s driving my wife crazy. But in three or four months it’ll be done and Fieldbrook will have a firehouse.”

Callahan, who owns Black Oak Construction, has worked alongside department members and the Fieldbrook Glendale Community Services District board to get everything lined up for the project — everything except voterapproved funding. “Maybe we’re putting the cart before the horse by going and building it before we have approval,” Fire Chief Rich Grissom admits. “But it was the only option we had. Gene is doing this for free. If it wasn’t for him and his desire to get it going, it wouldn’t have happened. It wouldn’t ever happen.” Callahan has assembled a patchwork of volunteers — engineers, fellow contractors, lawyers, lumber yard owners, roofers, high school students, woodworkers and dump truck drivers. Even the surfer down the street has pitched in. “I’m drawing in everybody I ever worked with [over] the past 40 years,” Callahan said. All this volunteer dedication knocked down the projected cost of the project — $900,000 — by nearly two-thirds. “The volunteers? Well, they’ve impressed the hell out of me,” says John McFarland, former chief of fire departments in Eureka, Arcata and Crescent City. He’s been helping out in Fieldbrook three days a week for two months now. “Being

out here pounding nails with these guys? I can’t believe the community. Folks that go by, they honk and wave, they yell, they give you the thumbs up.” McFarland rubs the back of his bald head, looks sideways and adds, “And they keep bringing goodies. Every day we’re getting two or three batches of brownies or cookies. One lady brought a dozen sandwiches! Every day that stuff’s coming in! These guys have support like I’ve never seen.” Community support has been the cornerstone of Fieldbrook’s Volunteer Fire Department from the beginning. Founded in 1955 after townspeople helplessly watched a house burn to the ground, the department didn’t establish a tax until 1964. Until then, money for fuel and trucks came straight from people’s pockets and from the fundraising efforts of the women’s adjunct group, the “Smokettes.” The department now has 22 members, including seven certified emergency medical technicians and a registered nurse. It serves around 2,200 residents on 550 parcels. Medical emergencies make up about 80 percent of its calls. The remodel is desperately needed. To explain why, Callahan turns on his heels and strides toward the firehouse, calling over his shoulder, “Come on in!” “We’ve so outgrown this thing.” He points out the narrow walkway between the ends of the parked trucks and the building’s back wall. “We don’t have room to do anything. Just look at this!” Big chunks of trim are missing around the garage door. Callahan explains that the old trucks were shorter and smaller and the new rigs don’t fit. At one point firefighters took the door trim off completely, and eventually they amended the truck light bars and mirrors so they could roll in and out without whacking the sides of the building. Grissom compares the old structure, built in 1967, to the Winchester Mystery House. “We’ve added on here, added on there. ... We have so much more equipment

now than when they first built the place.” The remodeled firehouse will provide enough room not only to park modern fire trucks, but also to service department vehicles, host trainings and store emergency equipment, including generators, Jaws of Life and disaster supplies. The renovated building bears Callahan’s trademark charm. “We don’t do ugly,” he grins. McFarland agrees, suggesting it might just be “the best looking firehouse in the county.” Area residents now pay a $42 tax assessment per parcel annually to support the fire department. Voters passed the fee with 86 percent approval in 2004, but it’s due to sunset next year. Measure K on this year’s ballot asks voters to bump that fee up to $75 annually to cover the remodel and support the department through 2023. The measure, which applies only to a subset of the community services district, must pass by a two-thirds vote. For now, construction is being financed with $125,000 from the fire department’s operating account, plus a loan, secured by the community services district, of up to $350,000, according to Rick Hanger, the district’s general manager. Before backing the loan, the district board needed assurance, so the fire department sent out a survey to 400 Fieldbrook homes. Residents responded by a 10-to-one margin that they’re willing to support the increase. Hanger adds, “If the measure for some reason was not successful this year, we’d come back to the voters with something restructured. If it also were to fail, then what we would look at [is] extending the note for a longer period of time.” Callahan says it’s a bargain. “The extra $33 per year works out to about nine cents a day for voters,” he said. “If the beer drinkers at the general store threw down a quarter into the tip jar every day, we could fund this. It’s not that much.” Grissom says you never know when you’ll need the fire department. “And we’re there. All the time.” He kicks at the dirt, smiles at the ground, and repeats, “All the time.” l Amy Barnes is a freelance writer and graphic designer who lives in Fieldbrook. • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013


the week in WEed

That Darn Cat By Grant Scott-Goforth

so fresh, so clean Hwy 101 in the Safety Corridor

707.826.7435 Mon-Sat 10-6pm Sun 10-5pm


egular weed columnist Ryan Burns is in New York this week, and he declined my suggestion — in the name of investigative journalism — to pack some of Humboldt’s finest on his cross-country flight to test just how lenient the TSA’s gropey screeners are (see the Oct. 10 “Week in Weed”). So instead, I’m here to bring you the latest wispy tentacles of the week’s news in pot: • Washington state, which legalized recreational doobage by popular vote last year, finalized rules last week for the drug’s sale. It’ll be overseen and taxed by the Washington Liquor Control Board, the chairwoman of which told the Washington Times that “we are making history,” though Colorado — Washington’s cohort in recrational legalization — polished its own, similar law back in September. The rules — designed to curb pot’s presence on the black market — include background checks for license applicants, seed tracking and child-resistant packaging. If Washington’s laws serve as a model for other states, maybe those Fiskars will be useful for something post-legalization in the emerald triangle. The legislation is garnering international attention, as lawmakers in Uruguay, Poland and Mexico (among other nations) are apparently scrutinizing the law in the event they, too, legalize it. • Mexico City is indeed considering legalization. The movement has an outspoken proponent in former Mexico President Vicente Fox, whose successor, Felipe Calderón, launched a massive assault against the country’s cartels after he was elected in 2006. That effort led to an estimated 70,000 killings in the drug wars that followed. Legalizing pot would devalue one of the cartels’ products, Fox argues, and

at an event this week, he gained a world spiritual leader as an ally (no, not Francis). The Dalai Lama — visiting Mexican City for an event hosted by Fox — told a French newspaper that he supports marijuana legalization — at least for medical use. “But otherwise if it’s just an issue of somebody (using the drug to have) a crazy mind, that’s not good,” His Holiness told a reporter. • And right here in California, Lt. Gov. Gavin “The Smile” Newsom announced he’ll be leading a pot blue ribbon panel tasked with writing a state legalization law. Joined by the ACLU, the Gav’s panel will spend the next few years working on a ballot initiative to make recreational use legal, the Associated Press reported. With Washington and Colorado as Guinea pigs, and 65 percent of Californians in favor of legalization with regulations (according to a Tulchin Research poll), Newsom and co. are looking at a rosy outcome. • Less rosy is the future of a certain Moldovan cat, who was caught last week smuggling pot into a prison near the Eastern European capital city of Chisinau. Prison guards’ suspicions were aroused by the feline’s frequent visits and abnormal collar, which as it turned out contained a small amount of marijuana. Apparently, this is not a new technique; Russian prison guards have caught cats sneaking in cell phones and heroin. • Finally, Dan Rather’s TV news report (Rather and Congressman Jared Huffman took an aerial tour back in August) about Humboldt County’s grow scene, “Gone to Pot,” aired Monday night on AXS TV, a relatively new cable station that I don’t get. Previous episodes of Dan Rather Reports are available on iTunes, according to the AXS TV website, so if you missed it too, you can presumably download it soon. l

Journalists obtained a leak in April 2013 revealing how widespread the buy-in was to these tax havens. The findings were damning: Government officials in Canada, Russia and other countries have embraced offshore accounts, the world’s top banks (including Deutsche Bank) have worked to maintain them, and the tax havens are used in Ponzi schemes. Moving money offshore has implications that ripped through the world economy. Part of Greece’s economic collapse was due to these tax havens, ICIJ reporter Gerard Ryle told Gladstone on her radio show. “It’s because people don’t want to pay taxes,” he said. “You avoid taxes by going offshore and playing by different rules.” U.S. Sen. Carl Levin (D-Michigan) introduced legislation to combat the practice, SB1533, The Stop Tax Haven Abuse Act, but so far the bill has had little play in the media. Researcher James Henry said the hidden wealth is a “huge black hole” in the world economy that has never been measured, and that could generate income tax revenues between $190 billion and $280 billion a year.


Trans-Pacific Partnership

Take 600 corporate advisors, mix in officials from 11 international governments, let them bake for about two years, and out pops an international partnership that threatens to cripple progressive movements worldwide. The Trans-Pacific Partnership could wind up being the world’s largest multinational trade agreement, a document developed behind closed doors with corporate advisors. Leaked text from the 30-chapter document shows that negotiators have already agreed to radical terms that would grant expansive new rights and privileges to foreign investors — and establish enforcement through extrajudicial “investor-state” tribunals. Through these tribunals, corporations could dispute international laws, regulations and court decisions while extracting untold amounts of taxpayer money in damages. The system could undermine public-interest policies on domestic finance, health, labor, environment, land use, and other laws across the globe, according to the Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch. The group investigated the TPP and is the main advocate in opposition of its policies. The AFL-CIO, Sierra Club and other organizations have also had growing concerns about the level of access granted to corporations in these agreements. But even with the risks of outsized corporate influence, the U.S. has a strong interest in the TPP in order to maintain

trade agreements with Asia. The balancing act between corporate and public interests is at stake, but until the U.S. releases more documents from negotiations, the American people will remain in the dark.


Obama’s War on Whistleblowers

President Obama has invoked the Espionage Act of 1917 more than every other president combined. Seven times Obama has pursued leakers with the act, targeting Thomas Drake, Shamai Leibowitz, Bradley Manning, Stephen Kim, Jeffrey Sterling, John Kiriakou and most recently, Edward Snowden. All had ties to the State Department, FBI, CIA or NSA, and all of them leaked to journalists. “Neither party is raising hell over this. This is the sort of story that sort of slips through the cracks,” McChesney said. And when the politicians don’t raise a fuss, neither does the media. ProPublica covered the issue, constructing timelines and mapping out the various arrests and indictments. But where Project Censored points out the lack of coverage is in Obama’s hypocrisy — only a year before, he signed The Whistleblower Protection Act. Later on, Obama said he wouldn’t follow every letter of the law in the bill he had just signed. “Certain provisions in the Act threaten to interfere with my constitutional duty to supervise the executive branch,” Obama said. “As my administration previously informed the Congress, I will interpret those sections consistent with my authority.”

Hate Groups and Antigovernment Groups on Rise across U.S.

Hate groups in the U.S. are on the rise, according to a report by the Southern Poverty Law Center. There are 1,007 known hate groups operating across the country, it wrote, including neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan, white nationalists, neo-Confederates, racist skinheads, black separatists, border vigilantes and others. Since 2000, those groups have grown by more than half, the report said, and there was a “powerful resurgence” of patriot groups, the likes of which were involved in the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. Worst of all, the huge growth in armed militias seems to have conspicuous timing with Obama’s election. “The number of patriot groups, including armed militias, has grown 813 percent since Obama was elected — from 149 in 2008 to 1,360 in 2012,” the Southern Poverty Law Center reported. continued on next page • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, OCT. 24, 2013


continued from previous page Though traditionally those groups were race motivated, the report noted that now they are gunning for government. There was a smattering of news coverage when the SPLC released its report, but not much since.


Billionaires’ Rising Wealth Intensifies Poverty and Inequality

The world’s billionaires added $241 billion to their collective net worth in 2012. That’s an economic recovery, right? That gain, coupled with the world’s richest peoples’ new total worth of $1.9 trillion (more than the GDP of Canada), wasn’t reported by some kooky socialist group, but by Bloomberg News. But few journalists are asking the important question: Why? Project Censored points to journalist George Monbiot, who highlights a reduction of taxes and tax enforcement, the privatization of public assets and the weakening of labor unions. His conclusions are backed up by the United Nations’ Trade and Development Report from 2012, which noted how the trend hurts everyone: “Recent empirical and analytical work reviewed here mostly shows a negative correlation between inequality and growth.”


Media Reform and Nuclear Weapons

The report highlighted by Project Censored on the threat of nuclear war is an example not of censorship, strictly, but of a desire for media reform. Project Censored highlighted a study from the Physicians for Social Responsibility that said 1 billion people could starve in the decade after a nuclear detonation. Corn production in the U.S. would decline by an average of 10 percent for an entire decade and food prices would make food inaccessible

to hundreds of millions of the world’s poorest. This is not journalism in the classic sense, Gladstone said. In traditional journalism, as it has played out since the early 20th century, news most commonly requires an element of something new in order to garner reporting — not a looming threat or danger. So in this case, what Project Censored identified was the need for a new kind of journalism, what it calls “solutions journalism.” “Solutions journalism,” Sarah van Gelder wrote in the foreword to Censored 2014, “must investigate not only the individual innovations, but also the larger pattern of change — the emerging ethics, institutions and ways of life that are coming into existence.”


Bank Interests Inflate Global Prices by 35 to 40 Percent

Does 35 percent of everything purchased in the United States go to interest? Professor Margrit Kennedy of the University of Hanover thinks so, and she says it’s a major funnel of money from the 99 percent to the rich. In her 2012 book Occupy Money, Kennedy wrote that tradespeople, suppliers, wholesalers and retailers along the chain of production rely on credit. Her figures were initially drawn from the German economy, but Ellen Brown of the Web of Debt and Global Research said she found similar patterns in the U.S. This “hidden interest” has sapped industry growth while lining the pockets of the financial sector, she said. Why would journalists avoid the topic? Few economists have echoed her views, and few experts emerged to back up her assertions. Notably, she’s a professor in an architectural school, with no formal credentials in economics.

From her own website, she said she became an “expert” in economics “through her continuous research and scrutiny.” Without people in power pushing the topic, McChesney said that a mainstream journalist would be seen as going out on a limb. When reporters raise an issue that elites haven’t raised, he said, they’re seen as ideologues, ax grinders or hacks. “It makes journalism worthless on pretty important issues.”


Icelanders Vote to Include Commons in Their Constitution

In 2012, Icelandic citizens voted in referendum to change the country’s 1944 constitution. When asked, “In the new constitution, do you want natural resources that are not privately owned to be declared national property?” its citizens voted 81 percent in favor. Project Censored says this is important for us to know, but in the end, U.S. journalism is notably American-centric. Even the Nieman Watchdog, a foundation for journalism at Harvard University, issued a report in 2011 citing the lack of reporting on a war the U.S. funneled over $4 trillion into over the past decade, not to mention the cost in human lives. If we don’t pay attention to our own wars, why exactly does Project Censored think we’d pay attention to Iceland? “The constitutional reforms are a direct response to the nation’s 2008 financial crash,” Project Censored wrote, “when Iceland’s unregulated banks borrowed more than the country’s gross domestic product from international wholesale money markets.” Solutions-based journalism rears its head again, and the idea is that the U.S. has much to learn from Iceland. But even Gladstone was dubious.

“Iceland is being undercovered, goddamnit! Where is our Iceland news?” she joked with us. “Certainly I agree with some of this list. Bradley Manning was covered badly; I was sad the tax haven story didn’t get more coverage. But when has anyone cared about Iceland?”


A “Culture of Cruelty” along Mexico-U.S. Border

The plight of Mexican border crossings usually involves three types of stories in U.S. press: deaths in the stretch of desert beyond the border, the horrors of drug cartels and heroic journeys of border crossings by sympathetic workers. But a report released a year ago by the organization No More Deaths snags the 10th spot for overlooked stories in Project Censored. The report asserts that people arrested by Border Patrol while crossing were denied water and told to let their sick die. No More Deaths conducted more than 12,000 interviews to form the basis of its study in three Mexican cities: Nacos, Nogales and Agua Prieta. The report cites grossly ineffective oversight from the Department of Homeland Security. This has received some coverage, from Salon showcasing video of Border Patrol agents destroying jugs of water meant for crossers to a recent New York Times piece citing a lack of oversight for Border Patrol’s excessive force. The ACLU has lobbied the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to call international attention to the plight of these border crossers at the hands of U.S. law enforcement. If ever an issue flew under the radar, this is it. l This story originally ran in the SF Bay Guardian.

give you the sweet pungency, the fragrant spiciness you want when you go for Thai or Vietnamese, but not so much heat that your makeup gets all Heath-Ledger-Joker. Are these white buttons truly the mushrooms of Asia? Maybe not, but when the first hints of a fall cold show themselves and you need to heal yourself in the vapors of tom ka gai, you won’t care.

Pie vs. Brownie

HumPlate By Jennifer Fumiko Cahill


ecommending food is a little like matchmaking — oh, the smug joy when it goes right. You’ve got to introduce someone to the right dish at the right time and let the sparks fly. Here are some of the magic moments we’ve been having this month.

Put the Lime in the Coconut

There are people who will tell you that eating spicy food in the summer cools you down. This is a steamy bowl of lies. It’s just that you’re already sweaty and it makes no difference. Finally, hot soup weather is here. A tipster sent me to Pho Thiên Long (307 Fourth St., Eureka) for the tom ka gai, a chicken and coconut milk soup with lime leaf and mushrooms that comes in a wide covered bowl ($9.25). It’s not too heavy on the coconut milk, so the broth is light and just a wee bit sweet. The wilted basil leaves, the flavor of the lime leaves and not too much chili paste

Have cupcakes had their moment? Is it time for another dessert to step up to the plate? Got a tip about the “Very Berry” pie at Ferndale Pie Company (543 Main St., Ferndale), specifically the crumb-topped one. If pie goes the way of the cupcake, it’s going to mean elaborate, newfangled fillings and thematic decoration. If/when that happens, you will be glad Ferndale Pie is making straightforward, homey pies. The Very Berry has strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries ($3.75 slice). I like a darker crust, but pale, abundant crumb topping has its fan base, and I respect that. Also, if you long to eat homemade jam from the jar, but the Man is keeping you down, this is your pie. Of course, this could be a turning point for the brownie instead. The enormous flaky one above the row of pies drew me in — it’s large enough for its own gravitational field ($2.75). So I tied it to the roof of my car like a mattress and headed back to the office, where it was pronounced fudgy and rich and actually better than the pie. One of these and a pot

of Irish coffee could get you through a level-5 breakup.

Roll Big

You love sushi, right? And yet, now and then when everybody wants to go for rolls you slump a little. What is that? It’s hunger. You are starving, and as much as you’d love a delicate sprinkling of tobiko over a pristine cube of tuna, you just don’t have the bank account to fill your growling belly like you could with, say, a sub. Down, belly. The “Golden Dragon” roll at Bayfront (1 F St., Eureka) is a genuinely substantial sushi roll ($10.50). It shows up on a long plate like an eight-car rollercoaster of tempura shrimp, salmon, thin slices of lemon, spicy mayonnaise sauce and, hey, that sprinkling of tobiko. The lemon turns out to be the star, balancing the richness of the salmon and the crispy shrimp. You have a choice: You can struggle to bite a piece in half and maybe not taste everything at once, or you can unhinge your jaw and stuff the whole thing in your mouth like a boa constrictor. Really, it’s going to depend on the company. If you find yourself munching away with a full cheek, be grateful, for you dine with true friends. Be a pal, Humboldt. Email your favorite dishes from around the county to Jennifer@ and we’ll check it out for HumPlate. l • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013

So Much Music

In which we tell you where to end your day — and how to start it By Jennifer Savage


ere at The Hum, we focus mainly on nighttime haps, but this week, I want to talk to you about breakfast, the best meal of the day. Breakfast helps you stay smart, svelte and — importantly — ready to take on your next night of partying. To that end, we offer some morningafter suggestions. Adjust to your dietary needs and preferences.

Thursday, Thursday, Thursday



Up in Macktown, heavy rockers Lord Ellis drop the hammer at Six Rivers Brewery, along with the winkingly named Phil and The Blanx. Lord Ellis features local legends Steve Bohner and Roshawn Beere of The Hitch, Pablo Midence of Dragged By Horses and Andy Sorter of, well, I know him from working in The Link and also because he knows how to tango. Apparently he plays mad keys. Despite all my intentions, I have yet to see Lord Ellis because they insist on having shows when I’m out of town. This week is no different. However, given the pedigree, people involved and word on the street, you can

expect Lord Ellis to deliver in all the vital ways. Dress in layers, because you’ll be sweat-drenched by the end. Cover is $7, show starts around 9 p.m. and is 21-andover. Here’s my new favorite breakfast balancing protein, carbs and veggies: oil a medium-sized pan, place a corn tortilla in it over medium heat, flip it after a minute, then quickly whisk together one egg, a handful of grated cheese and a quarter-cup or so of chunky salsa. Pour the mixture over the tortilla, cover and cook till the eggy part is set. Delish! Thursday’s options continue with The Motet and Jelly Bread at the Arcata Theatre Lounge. The Motet’s music consists of complex compositions that tell a story through syncopated rhythms and melodies rooted in jazz, Afrobeat, funk, salsa and samba. Jelly Bread melds soul and funk with dual vocals, four-part harmonies, in-the-pocket drum and bass grooves, swampy lap steel guitar, dirt under the fingernails guitar licks and a take-’em-to-church attitude. Doors opens at 9:30 p.m., cost is $17.50 at the door, $15 advance tickets available at Wildberries, Peoples Records, The Works, the ATL and ATL online, and the show is 21-and-over. Follow Jelly Bread with fancy toast! Start


WHO: The Shondes, WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 26, 9 p.m., WHERE: Eureka Inn Palm Lounge, TICKETS: Free

with your favorite loaf from Brio, Loleta Bakery or Beck’s, toast up a slice, then top with mascarpone cheese, Mad River Farms jalapeño jelly and some thinly sliced apple. What a treat!


Who cares about Halloween proper when a whole weekend awaits? Consider costumes strongly encouraged. All following shows happen on Saturday and are 21-and-over unless noted. Brooklyn band The Shondes are “too wild to ignore,” according to Rolling Stone’s review of the band’s latest effort, The Garden. Oft-described as a mix of riot grrrl, orchestral indie, punk and klezmer (really), The Shondes offer a level of musical cool not often seen in these parts. If you’re 21-or-over, you can see them in the Eureka Inn’s Palm Lounge on Saturday, 9 p.m.-ish. Did you know kids who eat oatmeal in the morning do better on tests? True! I read it somewhere. Combine cup of unfiltered apple juice with ½ cup oatmeal, a teaspoon of cinnamon and a half-teaspoon of salt. Bring to a boil, quickly reduce heat and cook for three-to-five minutes. Top with ¼ cup crushed walnuts. You’re ready for work! At Six Rivers Brewery’s Pirate’s Ball, Colonel Jimmy and The Blackfish splice the main brace with murder balladeers The Pine Box Boys. DJ Anya launches around 9 p.m. Continue the pirate theme with a breakfast rum cocktail: three ounces rum, plus one ounce fresh lemon juice and one ounce maple syrup. Goes well with French toast.

Samba and soul

Do-gooders at Humboldt Baykeeper present Baykeeper’s Ninth Birthday Bash with SambaDá, Samba Da Alegria and DJ Mantease at the Arcata Theatre Lounge. SambaDá unites the Americas by combining Brazilian natives Papiba Godinho and Dandha da Hora’s profound knowledge of Afro-Brazilian song and dance with the entire band’s take on samba-reggae-funk. Samba da Alegria is a community dance and drum troupe whose “soul purpose” — if that was a typo in the press release, I love it — is to provide “a celebration for and with the community.” Doors opens at 8 p.m. and $25 tickets are available at Wildberries, The Works and Baykeeper’s office. You’re sore from dancing all night. Just lay out a spread of coffee, milk, bread, jam, cheese and fresh fruit and spend the morning lazing and grazing.

Ramp up the volume

The good cause-o’ween continues at RampArt on with the uproariously named one man death country hellbilly band Joe Buck Yourself, gypsy punk band Viva Le

Vox and New Orleans’ psychedelic punksters PonyKiller. Both Joe Buck and Yeo play in separate bands with Hank 3, who you might have seen at the Mateel last week. All ages! All ages! All ages! Cover is $5, doors at 7 p.m., music at 8 p.m. A good morning for a smoothie: frozen banana, a big glob of peanut or almond butter, a couple tablespoons of good cocoa, a dash of cinnamon and you’re good to go. Some people enjoy kale in these things.

Globally grooving

On the south end of the county, KMUD Radio and the Mateel Community Center host the annual Halloween Boogie with Heavyweight Dub Champion featuring Dr. Israel, Liberation Movement, Ganga Giri and El Radio Fantastique. Heavyweight Dub Champion features a globally flavored rotating collection of MCs and musicians, Australia’s Ganga Giri is a world-renowned didgeridoo virtuoso and SF’s El Radio Fantastique features the charismatic songwriter, dumpster diver and one-time gravedigger Giovanni DiMorente. Doors at 7 p.m. Tickets are $27 advance — they’re $30 at the door. All ages! Garberville’s Woodrose Café opens at 8 a.m.

The Twilit Zone

Back up in Eureka, The Ink People and Synapsis present “an evening of the unexplainable,” with aerial performances, magic, sideshows, live music from The Monster Women (retro garage band in space) and Blood Gnome (spooky synthpop), plus DJs Zanapod and Onhell transforming the space into “the wondrous dimension of the imagination between waking and dream.” The $20 ticket includes dancing, themed performances, food and one drink. Tickets are available at The Works and All Under Heaven. Festivities begin at 8 p.m. All ages. After this, you’re going to want the familiarity and comfort of pancakes. Use your favorite mix, then grate fresh apples and add a handful of chopped nuts to make’ em that much healthier.

Honky-tonk and folk punk

The excellent advantage of Alibi shows starting so late — 11:15 p.m.-ish — is you can go to other gigs first and still drop in to catch, in this case, Humboldt’s fine Americana rockers Side Iron and East Coast folk punk artist Matt Pless. When Pless played out in Blue Lake a while back, I wrote, “The way Pless blends sincerity and rawness appeals.” Still true. Cover’s $5. You stayed up all night. Just go back to the Alibi, start with a Bloody Mary and stare at the breakfast menu till something sounds good. Order that. l • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013

Some Halloween fun is for grown-ups — and no, we’re not talking about skimpy costumes. Sometimes we’re looking for a good scare. The Kinetic Lab of Horrors is back again this year with sculptural arts and body parts. The freaky lab techs take you on a tour of the facilities on Eighth and N in Arcata from 7 p.m. to midnight on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Halloween night ($10). It’s a fundraiser for the Kinetic Race, and it’s recommended for ages 13 and older, unless your kid is a straight-up gangster. Check out for photos of last year and be honest with yourself about how much scare you can handle. Blue Ox Millworks and North Coast Repertory are scaring the bejeesus out of people with the Haunted Mill tour from 8 p.m. to midnight Oct. 25-31 ($10). The tour, which promises “sexy zombies” — oxymoron? — benefits the theater, Blue Ox Youth and Community Radio. Children 12 and under must go with an adult who doesn’t care if they ever sleep again. We’re told that the bald gentleman in the posters is a lovely person, but he looks like he could make Hannibal Lecter pee a little. Landlocked terror too mainstream for you? On Halloween night, you can climb aboard the Humboldt Bay Maritime Museum’s haunted 1091, a ghost ship rife with the greatest generation’s undead ($5). It’s strictly 13-years and up, and as with any visit to a place you might want to run out of, you’ll need flat shoes, ladies. For more upscale heebie-jeebies, the Morris Graves Museum of Art is hosting Murder by Dessert’s Murder at the Museum event on Saturday at 6 p.m. ($75, $50 members). A ghost named Ralph is said to haunt the place in a suit and fedora (not a bad look to be stuck with for eternity), and guests are invited to discover if he’s a wandering spirit or just a hoax. Either way, there’s a buffet dinner. Finally, you can surround yourself with actual dead people at the Sunrise Cemetery in Fortuna for Grave Matters and Untimely Departures at 1 p.m. on Sunday ($15) and hear tales from the underground while the sun is still up. Not that you’re chicken. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

Primates: The Fearless Science of Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey and Biruté Galdikas By Jim Ottaviani, illustrated by Maris Wicks, First Second

The connection between Tarzan and Jane Goodall never occurred to me until Page 2 of Primates, when a young Goodall daydreams of swinging on vines, jealous of Tarzan’s other Jane. Primates, a graphic novel written by Jim Ottaviani and drawn by Maris Wicks, tells the story of three icons in the field of primate studies: Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey and Biruté Galdikas. Goodall, the most prolific, serves as the backbone of the story. It’s fitting, as it was her research that opened up the world of gorillas to the rest of the world. It was Goodall who first introduced Fossey, renowned for her anti-poaching advocacy, to Galdikas, researcher and rainforest conservationist. Galdikas gets the least attention, really serving to show the continuing legacy of Goodall and Fossey, two sides of the same coin. Goodall, blazing the trail and finding success, becomes the face of primate research, while Fossey slowly allows her passion to fight poachers to contract into anger and frustration. Primates is a quick read at 133 pages. Ottaviani focuses on the story on how each woman truly came alive in the wild. Alternating between fictional storytelling and real life journal entries and using font to differentiate the two, Ottaviani captures the women’s voices. The artwork is simple but strong. Wicks’ style, like that of many small press artists, is like an adult version of Charles Schulz’s Peanuts. It allows Wicks to switch from whimsy to seriousness without jarring the reader, which lets Ottaviani be more expressive with his story. The graphic element also makes the book more accessible to young readers, while adults can be immersed in the narrative. And ultimately, the art, with its cartoon-y exaggerations, serves the story. To the scientific community of the 1960s and ‘70s, chimps using tools sounded like something straight out of the Sunday funnies. Primates is a fun, all-ages read that puts a spotlight on three fascinating women and allows the true story to shine — great for young girls looking for a strong role model, but meant for anyone who has wanted to feel the rush of swinging from the trees. — Trevor Reece • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013

Three films in a rut By John J. Bennett

Stop hitting yourself.


ESCAPE PLAN. I cut my teeth on big bloody action stuff like First Blood (1982) and Commando (1985), then followed Stallone and Schwarzenegger on to the mid-career weirdness of Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot (1992) and Junior (1994), respectively. Steeped as I am in the questionable cultural currency of their movies, chances are I’ll take a gamble on whatever they put out there nowadays. And gamble is the right word, because for every dumb-fun Expendables, there is at least one dumb-pointless Escape Plan. Stallone plays Ray Breslin, a security expert who makes crazy money breaking out of maximum-security prisons in order to expose their weaknesses. When he’s offered twice his usual fee to test a secret prototype jail, Breslin accepts despite his staff’s concerns for his safety. Once he’s on the inside, he realizes that their fears were well founded, and that he’s the victim of a double-cross. Whoever set him

up intends to keep him buried for the rest of his life, with sadistic Warden Hobbes (Jim Caviezel) looking on. His only hope would appear to be an uneasy alliance with Emil Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger), a resourceful lifer with an obscure past. There’s never any question our retirement-aged heroes will make it out of their predicament, and that’s part of the problem. Another is that Breslin’s mastery of captivity feels contrived and bogus. Yet another is that, despite its ominous architecture and masked henchmen, the super-prison where most of the action occurs never feels really threatening. Caviezel and co-menacer Vinnie Jones (as merciless head guard Drake) do their best to impart some sense of danger, but it’s not enough. Stallone and Schwarzenegger know how to switch it on when the camera rolls, so at least they are reasonably entertaining to watch. But the script, the direction, the special effects — pretty much every other element of the movie — all fail to match them. R. 115m. THE FIFTH ESTATE. Definitely the most thought-provoking, culturally relevant movie currently in theaters, this still stumbles and disappoints. The Fifth Estate describes the rise to prominence of Julian Assange and his organization Wikileaks. The subject matter

is contentious by its own merits, the movie perhaps even more so for what some are calling an anti-Wikileaks stance. I found the narrative fairly balanced, but I don’t have a dog in the fight, so it’s of little matter. The narrative starts off with Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch) meeting and enlisting the aid of a hacker/fan named Daniel Berg (Daniel Bruhl). Berg is won over by Assange’s charisma, confidence and mission of governmental transparency. Together, they turn Wikileaks into a formidable primary news source, eventually scooping most of the world’s major newspapers. As their profile increases, their website becomes a repository for ever more sensitive leaked documents. They eventually find themselves stewards of hundreds of thousands of internal U.S. State Department communiques and war-logs, at which point their ideological differences come to the fore. Cumberbatch and Bruhl give their customarily excellent performances, and the story is a compelling and important one. But director Bill Condon’s frantic, wannabe hacker-chic stylistic approach and the slapdash assembly of the script keep the actors from accomplishing anything noteworthy. The Fifth Estate is frustrating more than anything else; it promises impact and insight without delivering on either. R. 128m. CARRIE. Kimberly Peirce is a director to be admired. She’s an artist of great sensitivity and intelligence. She brought us Boys Don’t Cry (1999), a difficult, important, impressive debut. She stumbled a little with her follow-up, the uneven but well-intended StopLoss (2008). I wish she had better opportunities than remaking ‘70s horror classics, but that speaks to Hollywood politics, and that’s not my bailiwick. But she has a distinct perspective, and this is not the vehicle for it. For those unfamiliar with Brian DePalma’s 1976 version of this Stephen King story, Peirce’s version will offer some fun surprises. For the rest of us, there is precious little here by way of novelty. Carrie White (Chloe Grace Moretz), the outcast daughter of a religiously zealous single mom (Julianne Moore), is humiliated by her classmates when she fails to understand the onset of her first menstrual period. The incident awakens telekinetic abilities in Carrie, results in the punishment of her tormentors and sets up one of the most famous climaxes in movie history (no spoilers).

There’s never any question our retirement-aged heroes will make it out of their predicament, and that’s part of the problem.

This story, centered as it is in themes of bullying, awkwardness and the vulnerability of adolescence, is probably more relevant now than ever before. But instead of expanding on those themes, or illuminating them with contemporary context, this is a straight-ahead remake of DePalma’s movie, all the way down to some of the weird turns of phrase. Moretz and Moore bring a lot to the proceedings, and their performances are strong enough to make one momentarily forget they’re reprising Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie. Moretz and Moore’s performances are far and away the best thing about a nottoo-bad movie. But the original Carrie is a part of the cinematic lexicon, and a remake has to do a lot to distinguish itself. I’d like to give Peirce the benefit of the doubt, to assume she had little choice but to toe the line and make the movie the studio insisted on. But that’s pure conjecture; the fact of the matter is that her version doesn’t accomplish anything new. R. 100m. — John J. Bennett

Adult Western tarsier, about 4 inches high with an 8-inch-long tail.


’ve been intrigued by the tiny primates we call “tarsiers” ever since reading, long ago, a speculative essay in the now-defunct popular science magazine Omni that posed the question, “If humans hadn’t evolved, what other animal might have taken our ‘lords of the Earth’ top billing?” After considering the usual suspects — dolphins, bonobos, octopi (which have the the largest invertebrate brains) — the author proposed that, absent humans, the tarsier would have been a prime evolutionary candidate. Other than their diminutive size (65 million years ago, our own mammalian ancestors were about as big as tarsiers), they have a lot going for them: VISION: One look tells you that tarsiers have great nocturnal eyesight, with eyeballs nearly as big as their entire brain. Curiously, they lack the reflective tapeta lucidum (“bright tapestry”) retinal layer common to most nocturnal vertebrates, which you can see as “eyeshine” if you point a flashlight into the eyes of a cat, for instance. The purpose of the tapeta ludicum is to reinforce night vision, but those huge tarsier eyeballs more than compensate. In addition, they can probably see in the ultraviolet (they have the necessary “S” cone cells at the periphery of their vision), giving them another nighthunting advantage. HEARING: The tarsier auditory cortex is large and discreet, indicating high sensitivity to sound. While they vocalize around 70 cycles per second, they can hear (and communicate) at ultra-high frequencies approaching 100,000 cycles per second — another useful adaption for locating prey at night. DIET: Unlike all other primates, they are

entirely carnivorous. They catch insects, birds, lizards and bats by leaping at prey using their long hind limbs. Since ingesting protein is far more efficient than synthesizing it (which herbivores do), the tarsiers’ diet is about as streamlined as you can get. AGILITY: Tarsiers get their name from the elongated tarsus bones of their feet, which give them great ability to both cling to vertical tree trunks and to leap several feet when hunting. Flexible neck muscles allow them to turn their heads nearly 360 degrees, so they can watch and wait silently for their prey with virtually no body movement. Long contentious, the evolutionary history of tarsiers finally appears to be settled in favor of their line being a sister group to anthropoids, which includes primates like us (according to a paper in the April 30 Scientific Reports). The case was settled by noting that both simians and tarsiers lack the ability to synthesize vitamin C, which would not have been true for competing evolutionary paths. I recently saw my first tarsier in the wild on a night walk along the banks of the Kinabatangan River in the Malaysian province of Sabah in northeast Borneo. Our local guide, who had sharper eyes than any of us tourists, suddenly stopped dead and pointed his flashlight toward a tree trunk a few feet away. There was this little critter, appearing quite unfazed by the interruption of his night hunting program, staring back at us, unmoving but alert. In that moment, it wasn’t hard to imagine his ilk taking over the land if our species were to become extinct — and perhaps doing a much better job of stewardship than we’ve managed so far. l Barry Evans ( worries about the future of tarsiers, whose Southeast Asian jungle habitat is fast giving way to human encroachment.
