Gang Intervention Editor: Thank you, Judy Hodgson, for once again telling it like it is (“Straw-vote Gang of Four,” Oct. 24). I have researched the campaign finances that put the Gang of Four in office and what you say about who/what put them in office is spot on. This is becoming a terrifying scenario for the future of Humboldt County. The damage that this gang is doing is enormous. I am proud of the fact that it was I who originally dubbed them the Gang of Four because they are a gang of bullies who are riding roughshod over the will and wish of the people. It is critically important that Sundberg and Bass are replaced. I will work hard for anyone with integrity who runs. The Sept. 23 meeting had well over 30 people speak. The overwhelming majority appealed for a reversion to the original guiding principles or at least principles of that ilk. The board seemed to listen and put together a new set of principles that were more in line with what most people wanted. Many people were relieved and felt that the issue was settled. What happened next is what is most disturbing. The

Gang of Four rewrote the principles again and everything was back to where they wanted things to be: a drunkard’s dream for developers. What that told me is that Fennell and company are not to be trusted. They played us and then they stabbed us in the back. They never intended that the rewrite they did on the 23rd would stay. And that’s what we have running our county. I would hope that the citizens of SoHum who put Fennell in office will now start a recall before she does more damage. Sylvia De Rooy, Eureka Editor: Thank you for your recent publisher’s note on the current disheartening General Plan Update process. I like to analogize land use politics locally to finances and Wall Street nationally. In both cases, money has an incredible ability to bend language, media, politics and ultimately law to its advantage. I think this process locally has been one of: A) Confounding language. Delaying the process until a favorable BOS is in power. For example, the public participation work group that has been extremely influential in the process might be more accurately

Cartoon by joel mielke

named “private participation work group.” B) Confounding politics. Why is it important to collectively describe the four as a “gang”? Because money has intentionally used the party system to confuse voters. They are not all Republicans or Democrats, liberals or conservatives. Supervisor Bass is a centrist (conservative on land use) who had only become a Democrat shortly before her election. Supervisor Fennell, as a legitimate liberal on many issues (includ-

ing notably GMOs), ran to the right of her centrist opponent on land use. Both candidates’ “D” helped win their election in this decidedly Democratic county. C) Ultimately confounding government. This is the right’s (and money’s) ultimate goal: disempower government, which is exactly what the current GPU process has been all about. We are turning our “planning” department into a “service” department. And it should be argued vociferously that we are

doing this at exactly the wrong time. We need to get to work on the next election now including finding good and willing candidates to step up and run against incumbents Supervisors Bass and Sundberg. There will be tens if not hundreds of volunteers for support and thousands of voters who will vote for you. I believe organized and determined people power can trump money power. Jon Yalcinkaya, Eureka Editor: “We don’t want to discourage,” she said. Because discouraging isn’t working. Here’s the context for Supervisor Virginia Bass’ oft-quoted assertion. To catch a corporate wrongdoer? Pile on the red tape, bring the lawsuits, send the EPA. To catch a private-land permit-flouter? Well, what works? Penalties are nearly impossible to enforce. Discouraging isn’t working. What policy can Humboldt put forth so our precious resources and precious ecosystems can thrive and thrive more? Sound bites won’t do it, NCJ.

Charles Netzow, Trinidad Editor: Thanks for Amy Barnes’ “Building on Faith” — the story about the Fieldbrook firehouse rebuild project (Oct. 24). We think she “nailed it” by capturing the voices of the volunteers, the past and present context, and the good spirit of the thing. Our 40-year-long ongoing experiment as married business partners is proving that while it can be crazy-making, it is never boring. The firehouse project is one of our all-time favorites to work on together. The crazy-making part is more than balanced out by the great numbers of people who have pitched in to help in large and small ways. We are grateful beyond measure to each one. This has been a grassroots project from the start and the community truly owns it. continued on next page • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013

continued from previous page We aren’t really too surprised. Fieldbrook has its problems like any small, rural place, but the community has a good history of showing up for one another when it matters. Like the FVFD volunteers, who train weekly, year in and year out, to be ready for the emergencies of their neighbors and strangers alike. And like Chief Rich Grissom said, “You never know when you’ll need the fire department. And we’re there. All the time.” Please vote Yes on Measure K on Nov. 5. Chris and Gene Callahan, Fieldbrook

Sturdy obelisk, whited sepulcher, the lighthouse is a model of vertical economy. Gale-astounded by the sea gods,   a marooned mariner in its own right, the lighthouse used to console itself as well as the sailor with tallow candles and solid-wick lanterns before Monsieur Fresnel came to the rescue with his array of prisms. Refractory man is guided by refracted light, meager shafts in the vasty deeps and illimitable dark. The human predicament requires probing of oceanic mysteries, ghostlike in the dusk of Götterdämmerung. We sail along, scattershot and hugger-mugger, searching always for the Prophets of Light, standing sentinel at land’s end, from Storozhensky to the Bay of Bengal, from Jeddah to Île Vierge, from Boston Light to Trinidad Head.   —  Paul Mann

Editor: Balancing community welfare and government regulation with individual rights and freedom should be a never-ending process. Progress and harm happen on both sides. Good intentions, incompetence, good works, waste, creativity and excess happen on both sides. Ideally, in a democratic system, there is accountability, and opportunities for citizens to watch and weigh in on what works and what doesn’t, and the balance is dynamic. All that is a high-falutin’ way of saying, let’s try to reestablish more balance in some of our governmental entities, starting with George Wheeler and Dave Couch for MCSD. I believe our current board has more than enough good advocates for business, development and limited government, and could benefit from the scientific and technical understanding as well as the longterm perspectives on the health of our community and environment offered by George and Dave. Joyce King, McKinleyville

Rail Away Editor: The Journal has done an excellent job of educating the public about just how dysfunctional, useless and costly the North Coast Railroad Authority is. Your latest piece (“Withering NCRA Indictment,” Oct. 17) is just more confirmation of this rogue agency’s out of control and unmanageable behavior. Okay, we’ve got it. Now we need the same in-depth attention focused on remedying this mess. Endlessly bemoaning our situation isn’t getting us any closer to a solution. How exactly does Humboldt County extricate itself from this nightmarish boondoggle of an agency? What must be

but is potentially addictive. Now after more than 25 years of use it is clear that Marinol has not become a street drug and its status has been downgraded to Schedule 3, the same as many narcotic pain-killers. Another federal agency, the U.S. Patent Office, issued a patent in 2006 on the medical effects of the 68 naturally occurring compounds found in cannabis called cannabinoids, of which THC is one. This patent was issued to another federal agency — the Department of Health and Human Services. If you really want to know why the Supreme Court rejected even considering reclassifying cannabis as a Schedule 1 drug, then follow the money. For every politician in Washington, D.C. there are at least 60 lobbyists representing the pharmaceutical industry making sure we never have affordable or alternative drugs. As long as cannabis remains a Schedule 1 drug then little or no research can be conducted on these medically useful cannabinoids. It’s a classic Catch-22. Charles Davy, Bayside

Lessons from Dan done to transfer authority over the rail line in Humboldt County from the NCRA to an entity that won’t be an outrageous waste of taxpayer dollars and will operate openly and transparently? The most important role the media can play at this juncture is to inform the public about what needs to be done. Give us the information we need to speak in an informed manner to our state representatives, who, one would assume, would make getting us out of the NCRA a priority if more of the public began asking them why more isn’t being done when a way out exists. I’m confident your readers look forward to this next chapter in the NCRA story. Jud Ellinwood, Eureka

On Weed Editor: I welcome your new column on cannabis news — “The Week in Weed” — and would like to point out that it’s not the entire federal government that regards cannabis as a Schedule 1 drug (“The High Court,” Oct. 17). The FDA approved Marinol (a synthetic form of THC, the main active ingredient of cannabis) back in 1985 for treatment of nausea. When it was approved it was classed as a Schedule 2 drug, which by definition means that it has medical use

Editor: Naturally the usual suspects went off on Dan Johnson after his interview (“Meet Dan Johnson,” Oct. 10). They can’t get over the fact of his success. But since the day I’ve read it, that interview has changed my life. First I threw away every dictionary in the house. When my wife asked me to take out the garbage I replied, “What is garbage really? I mean, the junk you buy looks like garbage to me. Who decides these things?” Next day when my boss brought up a safety issue I said, “Who’s to say what’s safe and what isn’t? Seems to me it’s a gray area. Is it written down somewhere?” Turned out it was, but I had signed some stuff I couldn’t remember. Friends noticed the change and some gave me static. They said I never used to be a liar. I told them, “Who are you guys to say what’s true and what isn’t? Where does it say I can’t tell people whatever I want?” One of them brought up the Bible, something about bears eating witnesses. But I haven’t got time to read a huge book that’s not in plain English. Now that I’m sleeping on the couch, on my last chance at work and friends aren’t speaking to me, I’ve decided to connect with new people who aren’t jealous of my winning attitude. Eventually I’ll hold public office without the hassle of a campaign. Meanwhile, I have tons of books to sell on eBay. I don’t know how I got them because

I don’t look back, but evidently losers pay money for them. I’m still working on using more f-bombs, and the whole “no regrets” thing. But at least I’m not held back anymore by mumbo jumbo that has nothing to do with turning a dollar. Thank you, Dan Johnson, for showing me how to be a freaking winner! Jack Mariani, McKinleyville

Name That Tune Editor: Franklin Stover may be a member of ASCAP (as am I), but he is giving very bad advice about skirting their licensing requirements (“Mailbox,” Oct. 24). ASCAP was formed in the early 20th century by a small group of rich pop songwriters. For many years it operated like a private club, and even now it is profitable only for the very few top-selling songwriters, because it pays based on samples of what’s on air, and all TV and radio stations are required to keep logs. They also have hundreds of investigators combing the country. The idea that ASCAP investigators don’t come to rural towns is ludicrous. One incident exposes that misinformation. In the late ‘90s I played accordion at Chapala (then owned by Rita Pimentel) in Old Town on Fridays. After a couple of years, they got a demand letter — they could sign a license to play recordings or the radio for $800 per year. If they wanted to have live music (even one musician), the rate went up to $2,500. Naturally, Rita had to let me go. This is the insidious nature of the organization. They actively discourage live music, and punish establishments that hire musicians! One thing Mr. Stover got right: If you play material that is totally original and not registered with ASCAP, they are helpless. But then the investigator will come up and request a “standard,” offering a big tip. Once you’ve played it, your employers are their lawful prey. And by the way, this is not just bars and restaurants; they demand licenses from grocery stores, retailers, repair shops, any place where music is played as background music. For that reason, many establishments sign up with a streaming service, which takes care of the licensing. Yes, ASCAP is evil, like RIAA and MPAA. But that’s capitalism in action.

Stalk Market By Ryan Burns


n my trip to New York last week I was reminded of two seemingly obvious facts. First, you shouldn’t fly in and out of our recently rechristened “California [Fogbound] Redwood Coast — Humboldt County [Crapshoot] Airport” unless you have a day to spare on either end of your trip. And second, marijuana is everywhere. Like I said, obvious. But it hits home when you leave home. If you could track the many paths of Humboldt’s marijuana economy, it would probably look a lot like those route maps printed in the back of in-flight magazines, with lines crisscrossing the country and beyond. My first reminder came while commiserating with a grizzled guy with camo pants, a dirty ballcap and an eagle tattoo on his forearm. Our flights out had been canceled — his the night before, mine that morning — and we’d just watched longingly as 28 passengers filed onto a plane bound for SFO. We bonded over our waiting list disappointments. Turns out he’s from South Bend, Ind., and he’d spent the previous couple of weeks doing construction and electrical work in SoHum. “I can guess what kind of work,” I said, like the dork I am. He responded with a knowing smile and a weary tale of spending weeks away from his wife and young son. A few days later I was walking past two guys lounging on a stoop in Manhattan’s Upper West Side when bam! That funny smell from my childhood neighbors’ house smacked me in the face. The Gotham pot cloud reminded me of a friend who spent three years growing marijuana in the modified garage of his rented Eureka house, selling his product exclusively to a wholesaler who shipped it by the pound to the Big Apple, where people pay a premium for Humboldt. (That friend is now attending law school in Minnesota, and he paid his tuition up-front.) When my flight home from SFO was also canceled, I decided to take a bus to my in-laws’ house in Santa Rosa, rather than wait seven hours for the next flight home (a good move, since that flight was

canceled, too). In their driveway, which sits in a suburban cul-de-sac, the skunky aroma hit me again. Yup, my mother-inlaw confirmed, their neighbor is growing, rather brazenly, in his backyard. It costs U.S. taxpayers about $20 billion a year trying to enforce marijuana prohibition, according to Harvard economist Jeffrey Miron. That’s more than four times the budget of the National Cancer Institute. Seventy-five years of expensive marijuana prohibition has done nothing to curb pot consumption — as verified by the informal survey of the U.S. recently conducted by my nose — whereas cancer research is making breakthroughs all the time. The latest? According to a study published in the Anticancer Research journal, cancerous cells in leukemia patients can be killed by compounds derived from — you guessed it — marijuana. Elsewhere: • Is weed a substitute for hooch? That was one result in a large study on the likely impacts of legalizing recreational marijuana use that’s about to be published in The Journal of Policy Analysis and Management. The researchers, D. Mark Anderson of Montana State University and Daniel I. Rees of the University of Colorado, found that medical marijuana legalization at the state level (and the resulting increase in recreational use) corresponds with a 5 percent drop in beer sales and a 9 percent drop in traffic deaths. The authors also found that increased marijuana use correlates with decreased alcohol consumption for people ages 18 to 29, and they cite studies finding that stoned drivers are far less dangerous than drunk drivers. (Sober’s still best, though.) “Because the social costs associated with the consumption of alcohol clearly outweigh those associated with the consumption of marijuana,” the study says, “we conclude that legalizing the use of recreational marijuana is likely to improve public health, although plenty of unanswered questions remain.”

Bears Repeating By Linda Stansberry


nnette Graebner is reinforcing the French doors in her Honeydew home with plywood. Last January she returned from town to find the refrigerator ripped open, kitchen cabinets torn apart and broken glass covering the floor. An urban dweller would suspect a burglar. Graebner knew right away that it was a bear. “After I cleaned up the glass, I called Fish and Wildlife,” says Graebner. The state department, formerly known as Fish and Game, sent an agent to document the damage. A trapper came with a culvert trap (a giant metal tube used to capture bears alive), but after two weeks had no success. When another bear arrived in April and began stripping the fruit trees close to Graebner’s house and flattening the fence around her garden, Fish and Wildlife declined to intervene, saying they only responded to “real property damage.” Graebner is just one of many Southern Humboldt residents reporting an unusual amount of bear activity over the last few years. Some old-timers say that the white oaks are producing more acorns, meaning foraging bears are more active. Others say there are simply more bears. Dave Lancaster, a biologist at Fish and Wildlife, says that neither theory is correct. “We haven’t had a lot of calls about bears,” Lancaster says. “It’s actually been a quiet year. The bear population doesn’t

go through dramatic changes in one year’s time, so there’s no such thing as a ‘big bear year.’” But homeowners insist they are experiencing big bear problems. “In the 35 years that I’ve lived here, I haven’t dealt with bears as much as the last few years,” says Claire Trower, Graebner’s neighbor on Wilder Ridge. Last year a bear clawed open the door of her SUV and ripped up the car’s upholstery to get to a sack of grain she’d left in the back seat. Fish and Wildlife said she was to blame for leaving the grain in a place where the bears could easily smell it. She was careful after that to always store the grain in a garbage can in her barn. This summer saw her repairing her barn door after another bear break-in. Farther south in Piercy, Talia Rose says that the neighborhood fruit trees receive regular visits from bears — up to five in a two-week span at her own plum tree. “Their body types were very different so we could tell they were not the same.” Other SoHum residents report bears

eating all the melons in their gardens, surprising them on hikes and running across the road in front of their cars. Yet another Wilder Ridge resident says that a bear has broken into their home twice, “climbing up the siding and breaking a window to eat the dog food.” In recent decades Fish and Wildlife has intensified its focus on wildlife conservation. Instead of employing a government hunter to shoot a nuisance bear outright, less extreme steps are initially taken. Landowners are encouraged to stow away or carefully clean items that might be attractive to foraging bears. Fish and Wildlife officials might attempt to “haze” a bear away from dwellings, or use a live trap to relocate it. Depredation permits, which allow landowners to kill (or hire a government hunter to kill) nuisance bears, are seen as a last resort, and are only issued if livestock is killed or injured, or a bear has entered a residence — and then only when “corrective or bear-proofing efforts have failed.” Much of the bear behavior that is reported falls short of that criteria, and

... Last year a bear clawed open the door of her SUV and ripped up the car’s upholstery to get to a sack of grain she’d left in the back seat.

even when it’s warranted (such as in the case of Graebner’s break-in) the culprit is usually long gone. Depredation permits have fallen steadily in the last decade. Eleven were issued in 2006. Only one was issued in 2011. When a permit is issued, it almost always results in the bear’s death. But neither depredation permits nor the preliminary measures seem to be deterring the kinds of incidents now common in Southern Humboldt. Residents are wondering: If your dog food, grain or other edibles can’t be kept safely in your home or barn or car, then where can you put them? And is this a problem that’s going to get worse with time? While the black bear population does not rise dramatically from year to year, it has increased steadily since 1982, when Fish and Wildlife estimated statewide numbers at 10,000 to 15,000. The most recent statistics have that number at 25,000 to 30,000. Shane Embery, a warden with Fish and Wildlife who also lives in Honeydew, says the problem is overpopulation not of bears, but of people. “We’ve seen an increase in rural population in Humboldt County,” Embery says. “Some of your neighbors who moved here five or 10 years ago might not be respectful. It’s not a lack of natural food in the wild. It’s an increase in easy food.” Essentially, less savvy, newer homesteaders in the hills of Humboldt County may be spoiling bears, leaving garbage out and training the animals that a quickbreak-and-entry is a lot easier than spending all day under an oak tree. Every fall the Department of Fish and Wildlife issues 1,700 tags to bear hunters in California, and Embery and Lancaster say that sport hunters play a role in maintaining the bear population. The season ends Dec. 29 or when all tags have been filled, whichever comes first. Last year hound hunting of bears was banned in the State of California, a change some think will influence the season. “Now that it is no longer legal to hunt bears with dogs in California, far fewer will be killed each year in this state,” says Jim Etter, a rancher in Petrolia. “I suspect their population will increase noticeably over the next five years or so.” Embery agrees, saying, “I suspect we will close the season without reaching quota.” The impact of the hound hunting ban will be clear at the end of the season. In the meantime, rural residents may have to stick with boarding up their doors, rinsing out their soda cans and offering to take their neighbor’s garbage with them on their next dump run. l

Picking HSU’s Prez


A guild of university trustees, faculty bigwigs and community members — including one student rep — has assembled to choose Humboldt State University’s next president. Rollin Richmond, who has held the position since 2002, will leave at the end of the coming spring semester. The “Committee for the Selection of the President” — tasked with reviewing applications and interviewing candidates for the university’s top job — meets for the first time on Monday. There will be an open forum from 10 a.m. to noon in the Van Duzer Theater followed by a closed-doors session. The committee is made up of five California State University trustees and CSU Chancellor Timothy White. Committee head J. Lawrence Norton also selected an advisory committee — per board policy — to help pick a new prez. The advisory committee: Lori Dengler, professor, Department of Geology; Claire Knox, professor, Department of Child Development; Bernadette Cheyne, professor, Department of Theatre, Film and Dance; Noah Zerbe, chair, University Senate; Steven Smith, dean, College of Natural Resources and Sciences; Kimberly Hall, veterans coordinator (staff representative); Conor Handley (student representative); Alisa Judge (alumni representative); John Woolley (campus advisory board representative); Buster Attebery, chairman, Karuk Tribe; Heidi Moore, Humboldt County Office of Education; Eduardo Ochoa, president, CSU Monterey Bay. ● GOVERNMENT / BY GRANT SCOTT-GOFORTH / THURSDAY, OCT. 24 AT 12:53 P.M.

Arcata’s Plan to Pay the State

The Arcata City Council approved a plan this morning to pay back $4.5 million to the state in misappropriated redevelopment funds. Hank Sims at the Lost Coast Outpost did a good job of recapping the

issue yesterday, which has also been covered by the Arcata Eye and Journal. The city’s plan: Pay the state Department of Finance $1 million in the 2014 fiscal year, and $300,000 a year for the following 10 years. The first three years are expected to be funded by sales of Sandpiper Park mobile home units, which received the majority of redevelopment funds that the city’s now on the hook for. City staff told the council there would be an option to pay the entire amount off earlier, if the city should come up with extra money before anticipated. The council accepted the plan unanimously, though it still requires approval from the Department of Finance. “I don’t see any reason why a reasonable proposal wouldn’t be met by a reasonable acceptance,” Deputy Director of Community Development David Loya told the council. Council and staff assured attendees that the plan would not affect the city’s general fund, and the city was not on the verge of bankruptcy. “This plan was considered in the context of all the services the city provides and the budgeting for future years,” Mayor Shane Brinton said. In a cryptic message to the council, Arcata architect Kash Boodjeh — who’s been critical of the city’s handling of the loss of redevelopment funding — stood silent for his allotted three minutes of public comment prior to the council’s decision.

Human intervention

That’s right, another human puts things right with the world.

That’s Alex Fogg, fairly new to town, prettying and friendly-fying the temporary, dreary walls of plywood flanking the Carson Block Building while it undergoes major rehab. “The Ink People put me up to it,” says Fogg, referring to the artsy outfit which also put him in the orange jumpsuit with “human” printed boldly on the back. The Ink People were put up to it by the denizens of the Carson Block, says Fogg. Fogg started with the blue background, which took him eight hours in three sessions to complete. He’ll add signs for the businesses obscured by the plywood, and maybe some pointing fingers for an extra nudge. ● CRIME / BY GRANT SCOTT-GOFORTH / WEDNESDAY, OCT. 23 AT 2:06 P.M.

Biologist Charged in Embezzlement

Federal embezzlement charges were filed this week against biologist Ron LeValley, who was arrested last year following investigation into a nearly million-dollar grift involving the Yurok Tribe and LeValley’s Mad River Biologists. The TimesStandard’s Thadeus Greenson reported that LeValley is expected to appear in court for the first time this month. He and biologist Sean McAllister were arrested in 2012 on suspicion of forging invoices to embezzle the money, along with former Yurok forestry director Roland Raymond, who pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to embezzle and has cooperated with the investigation.

Best Of





elcome to the Best Of Humboldt 2013. We’ve made some changes this year — and more are on the way for 2014. In the past, the Journal’s editorial department was solely in charge of coming up with questions to ask readers. This year the entire staff participated, plus we borrowed ideas from a few of our sister newspapers in the Association of Alternative Newsmedia (Seven Days in Vermont, News & Review in Chico). After paring down the overly long list, we still ended up with about 50 percent more questions. Nearly all ballots this year were submitted online, which required voters to log in to our new website with whatever name you call yourself. We also set a threshold of at least 15 answers per ballot to be counted. Some questions (best bakery, pizza and top restaurant) drew way more votes than others. Some (best coffee house, tattoo artist) were closely

disputed and the lead changed right up until deadline. Some questions … well, drew a snore from readers (best nail artist) and may not be back next year. We had a few lively discussions putting the ballot together. Should we just award Stars a permanent crown for serving us the best burgers year after year? Well, this year. But where will Surfside Burger Shack be next year? And we watched excitedly as Brio and Ramone’s seesawed back and forth for best bakery. They almost ended in a tie, but guess who’s No. 3 and 4? Loleta Bakery and Beck’s, according to Journal readers. I love the Best Of Humboldt because I love being reminded by readers of facts like these: • The best eatery on a budget really is Japhy’s. • The best swimming hole is Swimmers Delight followed closely by “no telling, it’s a secret” and “you have to be blindfolded, but it’s near Bridgeville.”

• The best weekend getaway is Trinidad — almost anywhere you can find a room — and The Benbow Inn, as always. We want to hear from readers how to improve next year. Clearly we need to have separate questions for bakery as in “great-scone-with-my-coffee” and our daily loaf of bread. But how specific should we get on food? Best fish taco? Best Golden Dragon roll? What about best massage therapist? Best place to buy tires? Best brewery, best beer and best IPA? What do you think, Journal readers? Let us know what questions we left off that you’d like to see next year. And let us know if you’re up for a slightly longer ballot, or — “Enough, already!” Send feedback to In the meantime, enjoy the Best Of Humboldt 2013.

At the height of empire, you’ll always find excess (think Caligula). In 1920, the Pacific Lumber Co.’s industrial empire was at the pinnacle of its wealth and power — and Scotia was its capital city. Between 1920 and 1923, the company town’s corporate benefactor erected the Scotia Inn, the Scotia Hospital, the First National Bank of Scotia and the majestic Winema Theatre, a stately hall that incorporates Greek revival and Swiss chalet-style architecture. And it’s built entirely out of old-growth redwood. The acropolis-style columns out front are simply redwood trunks, their fuzzy bark naturally imitating ridged column shafts. Decorative cutouts adorn the eaves on the gable roof. And, like many classic movie houses of the era, a little windowed ticket office sits cheerfully under the awning. Step inside, past the mounted historical knickknacks and the classic posters for High Noon and Creature from the Black Lagoon, and you’ll enter the cavernous auditorium, where oversized redwood cornices and massive ceiling beams hover above you on the vaulted ceiling. Beyond the sloped pathways cutting between theater seats lies the stage with its rippling red velvet curtain. Coming from our cheap, disposable culture, it’s nothing short of breathtaking to find yourself surrounded by such rich redwood and beautiful craftsmanship. Feels like standing in the belly of an inverted Viking ship. Built as a movie house and live theater venue, the space continues to serve as a community gathering spot, hosting everything from concerts (Dick Dale’s coming Nov. 25) to arts-and-craft sales, meetings and buffet dinners. A local group of ladies does morning workouts on the theater floor, projecting exercise DVDs onscreen. Granted, the lumber barons should have shown a bit more reverence for those ancient trees, but hey, at least we have some architectural gems to show for that generation’s efforts. And the Winema Theatre, which narrowly escaped fiery destruction in 1992, may be the crown jewel. — Ryan Burns • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, OCT. 31, 2013

The Fieldbrook Valley Apple Farm.

Betty Lovie.

Murphy’s proudly supports local farmers! Fieldbrook Valley Apple Farm The pulp mill closed and, like many others, Dick was laid off leaving the Lovie family to look for another way to make a living. Betty had just a few apple trees and suggested they plant lots of apple trees to produce juice for the retail market. Dick didn’t think much about this heaven-sent idea at the time, commenting “Oh, we can’t even grow apples on the trees we have!” They went ahead with the apple farm idea, and thus Fieldbrook Valley Apple Farm was born. They have learned a lot about growing apples since then. Dick and Betty started their business by planting a semi-dwarf apple orchard in 1991. “Now we have 750 trees that produce 50 apple varieties. We

harvest August through November and you can pick your own bag of apples here at the farm, too!” says Betty. “We have apple honey, veggies, blueberries, garlic and don’t forget the popcorn for our visitors, too!” “People think it is easy. We make a good living but it takes a lot of hard work.” As soon as the harvesting season is over, then it is time to clean up the leaves (remember the 750 trees?) then prune the trees, thin the crop and before you know it ... it’s back to harvest time again. Dick, Betty and one of the sons, Arley Smith, deliver to local stores and sell apples at five local Farmers’ Markets each week as well as Crescent City’s Saturday market.

Dick and Betty have five children and eleven grandchildren. Grandchildren Olivia, Lyla Lou, William and Bernie are all active at the farm. They enjoy hunting and fishing out on South Fork Mountain and clamming at the beach. Murphy’s has been carrying apples from Fieldbrook Valley Apple Farm for more than a decade. You can find Val Star, Golden Supreme, Honey Crisp, Gold Rush and dozens more varieties of crunchy, juicy apples that are great eaten fresh. Murphy’s also has apples more suited for home-baked pie and don’t forget the ice cream to serve it a la mode! By Colleen Hole, Advertising, North Coast Journal

The Most Powerful Woman in Eureka STAFF PICK

A glimpse of her uniform and cropped gray hair from an office window sends people bolting to their cars. Grown men and women plead with her for mercy. She does not negotiate. There may or may not be a Facebook page devoted to tracking her movements. Parking Enforcement Officer Lynda Punch has been chalking tires and writing tickets for 15 years. In her first few weeks on the job, an angry man stepped into her personal space and muttered, “fuck you” over and over, just inches from her face. She was too scared to reach for her radio, but she finished writing that ticket. Damn. Punch is not so easily intimidated these days, shifting from a soft kindergarten teacher voice to a firm dogtrainer tone when necessary. And she is nothing if not fair, having ticketed several cousins over the years. Not surprisingly, she’s a stickler for the rules, making certain to clear this casual interview with her boss and refusing a free slice from a pizza guy who shall remain nameless. If you get to your car before she’s actually written the ticket on her well-worn clipboard, you have a prayer. If not, abandon all hope. And cussing her out will only get you an unpleasant note in your file. Expect that to come up in court. Mostly, she says, people are nice, some even saying “thank you” out of habit. “I’ve had people cry,” she says, pursing her lips. And yes, she does feel bad sometimes. Hoping to stay off her radar? Look for chalk marks on all your tires and keep an eye on the clock. She doesn’t want to give you a ticket. But she will. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill



Ah, the “bonus” category. Let us be very clear: Bonus does not imply “non-essential.” Rather, these are the things that get at the very essence of a truly Humboldt experience. We think you voters did a pretty good job capturing that in your replies — with a couple of gauche exceptions. (Wedding Rock. Really?) Without further chastisement (yet), the winners are:

Best Humboldt vista that never gets old:

Trinidad Head. Yes! Not to mention the soothing, nautical auralscape — doyng, doyng, hmmm hmmm — that backdrops the soaring views from the Head.

Best place to kill time browsing: Old Town Eureka. Yup. Trinkets and treats, galleries, topshelf secondhand goods, books and ice cream. Even turkeys like it. Best thing to bitch about in Humboldt:

If answer-purity is the goal here, then we have to report that two words, “the weather,” dominated this category. Oh, you people. How common. What, nobody warned you before you moved — or were born — here that it would be gray and cold most of the time? Sheez. But the weather isn’t really what you all like to bitch most about here. Far and away, it’s the “hobos, homeless, plazoids, homeless tweakers, bums, crusties, trim kids, hippies, stinky hippies, panhandlers, trimmigants and transients.” And, actually, if anyone has a reason to complain about the weather, it’s those houseless folks.

Best Humboldt place you miss from back in the day: Bon Boniere, though a lot of people also miss Globe


See how it was made at

Imports. What only one person — one person — misses? Trains. There’s somethin’.

Best place to propose: Really? Wedding Rock? Sorry

to inform you, dear voters, but that’s where people get married. Propose someplace else. Any place else. Bend knee, proffer prize, hold breath. If you fear the answer and absolutely require an oceanbound cliff for potential post-proposal flinging, there are many options other than Wedding Rock.

Best last meal in Humboldt: Larrupin’ Cafe. Start

with the carpaccio appetizer, continue with the smoked beef brisket and finish with the rest of that $1,000 bottle of Knappogue Castle 1951 pure pot still Irish whiskey you copped from a friend’s cabinet and have been nursing all night with swift dropped-mynapkin swigs under the table. After that, you’re good to go. Ahem.

Best cop: Assorted cops garnered a vote or two each, but the scofflaws clearly owned the votepower in this category. The most frequent answer was a haughty “none/no such thing.” Several folks called the notion an “oxymoron” and many simply said “LOL” or asked, “Huh?” and “Is this a joke?” We’re fond of some of the more true-blue answers, such as a funny girl’s confession that she “was too drunk to catch his name,” and a humble soul’s vote for Eureka Sgt. Rodrigo Reyna-Sanchez because he “broke up every party I ever went to under 21. Probably the reason I am not in jail!” And that’s it. Oh, wait. We’d like to throw a big kiss-kiss to one called “Stargirl,” because that’s how she voted in every category — with a daring, simple, saysit-all, loves-everything-and-everybody, charming little double x. Sweet stars, girl! You’re the best! xx — Heidi Walters

Best Use of Your Laundry Money STAFF PICK

In the alcove of your neighborhood restaurant, the apse of your favorite bar, there’s often one of Humboldt’s overlooked treasures. Pinball tables — “Machines!” argues a colleague, who smugly points out that “pinball machine” garners 1.45 million results in a Google search, while “pinball table” yields a mere 169,000. “Almost 10 to one,” he boasts. (Never mind that Pete Townshend, the windmilling messiah himself, refers to a “machine” half as many times as a “table” in his canticle to the sport, “Pinball Wizard.”) But whatever you want to call it, that feeling when your quarter brings the backboard to life is unlike any other arcade experience. It’s appealing to nostalgic and diversion-seeking adults, but colorful and thrilling enough to appeal to kids used to high-powered video games. That mercurial orb is just waiting to be launched into adventure, to flit from flipper to bumper to ramp, all before the backdrop of the Terminator’s search for John Conner, Indiana Jones’ harrowing escape from a large stone, or a magic-filled journey into the macabre. Pinball is not unique to Humboldt County, of course, but short of traveling to Alameda to visit the Pacific Pinball Museum, what’s the best place to play around here? Well, that depends, both on the table and the atmosphere you’re look-

ing for. While attending HSU, a favorite between-class activity was downing a beer and playing “Elvira and the Party Monsters” in the Depot. Because of the nomadic lives of pinball machines, Elvira currently lives at the Trading Post in Myers Flat — a bit out of the way for me to visit the Mistress of the Dark with any regularity. (The Depot now has a “T2: Judgment Day” table that pales in comparison.) Both Harbor Lanes and E&O bowling alleys have a couple of tables where kids of all ages can rack up points between knocking down pins. Surfside Burger Shack has a NASCARthemed machine that keeps burger makers and customers on edge with roaring engine and burning rubber sounds. The Shanty, Toni’s and Raging Creek all deliver flipper fun, too. But my favorite scene has to be the ’90s-Sunday-night-nostalgia one-twopunch at Hum Brews. There, Mulder and Scully beckon you with the dark and spooky “X Files” (featuring an animatronic alien fetus). By its side is the Simpsons Pinball Party, a two-tiered multi-ball bonanza from America’s favorite animated world. If you go on a game day, you won’t be able to hear the table or the theme music over the din of fans and diners — pick a quieter time for the full experience. Get out there and put those crazy flipper fingers to use, Humboldt. — Grant Scott-Goforth

first time out on the water. photo courtesy of Stewart Kirby

Surfing with Sharks Redway to Shelter Cove takes about 40 minutes. Twelve if you’re local. As you drive down into town, surfing access is found on the south side. Whether new or used, purchased or rented, a wetsuit is as essential to cold Humboldt surfing as the surfboard itself. For me, the purpose of the wetsuit is to instill superhero-like feelings of double-extra safeness from sharks. Plus protection from the cold. Mostly though, the sharks. Salmon trawlers a few hundred yards out from shore might seem like they would attract sharks to the area. White sharks, in particular. Porkers. But Dowd explains that any sharks in the vicinity will linger on the other side of the shelf, far out from shore, waiting to strike seals and sea lions from below. “In Shelter Cove, the water is too shallow for ambush predators,” Dowd says. “There

By Stewart Kirby


f you want to learn to surf, you’ll find ideal conditions at Shelter Cove. The small, predictable, mellow waves that meet the crescent sweep of the cove are perfect for beginners, according to longtime surfer John Dowd. Since I’d never surfed before, it seemed like a great place to start. But first, surf conditions: You can find out how choppy the water is and how high the waves are by contacting your local surf shop or by going online. The site has up-to-date information, but it’s very technical. I checked In with Tsunami Surf and Sport in Garberville and was assured that on my chosen September day the water was fine. The bucolic, meandering jaunt from

home & Garden

have been only two attacks in 10 years, and one fatality in 20.” Even though the cove is a kiddie pool to experienced surfers, it’s not without its dangers. If your wetsuit doesn’t include booties, you’re likely to lacerate your feet on the rocks in the shallow water without even knowing it. Worse yet, take a spill and hit your head. To help us stay on our boards, we smear them with Mr. Zog’s Sex Wax, applying it with rigorous rhythmic swirls right there on the beach. This creates a textured surface good for standing on, and lends a minty aftertaste for any huge, tooth-filled mouths that come chomping along. At the end of the board hangs a leash with a Velcro strap for attaching at the ankle. This is to ensure the oneness of surfer and board, a mystical connection that also keeps the surfer from having to play fetch. For most people, the strap will be on the right foot, with the left foot in front. A natural stance with the left foot in back is called goofy foot. In the water, the first 30 seconds can be a mite chilly, but, incredibly, that’s as long as it takes for the body to reach perfect com-

fort. Chest-high in the water, you lie down on the board and start paddling far enough out to ride a wave back in. The importance of an accompanying experienced surfer can’t be overstated. At all times, be sure to keep the surfer between you and the sharky side of the water. There’s no trick to surfing. All it takes is split-second timing and impeccable balance. Perhaps it’s the buoyancy of bobbing in the water, the need to time your actions with the natural flow, the acceptance of a power infinitely greater than yourself that leads the surfing soul to peace and exaltation. A kind of perpetual surf-birth into the world. Back on land, food never tasted so good. Largely, this is due to the good deli sandwiches at the market up the hill. And yet, undeniably, there’s something about standing on a moving surfboard for about a second and a half that sharpens one’s appetite. I recommend the shark fillet. l Stewart Kirby is a novelist, author of and host of KMUD’s Twisted~Lid.

Down and Dirty

The Great Deer Roundup By Terry Kramer

People and dogs gather to roust deer. Photo by Karen Angel


he hunger of deer is no greater than the fury of gardeners who seek to thwart the peaceful vegetarians. Just ask the Humboldt Botanical Garden’s deer wranglers, sturdy volunteers who scrambled up steep ravines, picked off bloodsucking ticks and nursed pokes and scratches from blackberry brambles in the great deer round up of 2005. While visitors to the county’s largest public garden today see a safely blooming haven, back then it was human vs. deer, fighting for primacy on 44.5 acres, after a deer herd was fenced in during the garden’s creation. To appreciate the battle, consider the terrain: Perched on a lumpy hill above southern Humboldt Bay, the garden is a narrow piece of land, rising from an elevation of 115 feet at the lower gate to 335 feet up top. The land is steep, riddled with ravines and hills. Any piece of flat ground has been carved by an earth-moving machine. When the Humboldt Botanical Foundation first leased the site from the College of the Redwoods, it was wild land, roughly a quarter-mile wide and a half-mile long, clotted with Sitka spruce and brambles, twisted willows and cascara. Fencing it off took about a year and a half, according to volunteer David Lemm, who headed the fence construction project in 2003. Humboldt County jail prisoners in the sheriff’s work alternative program did the heavy lifting, lugging wire, pounding steel posts and hauling countless bags of concrete up steep slopes. With the help of inmates and fence consultant Todd Phelps, the work came in well under budget and

helped earn Lemm a garden volunteer of the year award. But … “It is inevitable when a 45-acre area is enclosed by a new fence that a few deer are fenced in rather than out,” a notice in the garden’s quarterly newsletter confessed in January 2005. So wranglers were wanted. “If you like to bang loudly on pots and pans, sing and beat drums, this is the perfect activity for you,” it said. Similar ads were place in local newspapers. Under the helm of Karen Angel, then executive director of garden foundation, the great deer roundup was almost ready to begin. But a botanical garden cannot allow yodeling hounds and pan-banging gardeners to chase pregnant does or fawns. Much to the chagrin of some, including an executive director and a board of directors, deer have rights, as all wild creatures have in this tamed world, and the California Department of Fish and Game was there to make sure they were protected. Scheduled deer roundups were postponed until late summer. To this day, the wranglers cannot say exactly how many deer they bested, but they recount those days with grins, laughs and much arm waving. It all started out looking easy, recalled Arcata landscape designer Mary Gearheart. “First just a couple of guys went in with their trusty hunting dogs and tried to herd the deer toward an open area in the fence. When this was only mildly successful, several guys went in with their dogs, again maybe a couple of deer herded out.” Next, wildlife biologists advised that the technique to herd deer was to form a human wall, holding hands and bed sheets. To be effective, the wall was to cut through

the entire garden in one wide swath, up and down, through huge gulches that weren’t easily crossed, with the bed sheets filling in the gaps because there weren’t enough volunteers to cover the territory clasping hand to hand. And what happens when a frightened wild deer comes face to face with such an apparition? “As we started out on that last sweep, a deer came running right for where I was holding a sheet and I knew right then how futile and foolish it was to think we could stop a frightened deer,” Gearheart wrote in an email. “And as we dropped the sheet in fear, the deer leapt right through, clearly ready to sail over our heads if need be.” Even so, on that Aug. 20, 2005, roundup, five deer were flushed out and the wranglers were tasting success. They shook their sheets and tried again. There were four official deer roundups that August and September, mostly on early Saturday mornings and once during a full moon. Loleta resident Tennie Brooks helped with all four, and vividly remembers the full moon roundup, when the deer posse assembled in silver light and deep shadows. “It was so much fun,” she recalled. The group whooped it up with yelling and pan banging, yodeling and drum beating. “We made lots of noise, but I don’t know if any deer left the garden that night.” Volunteer and master gardener June Walsh remembers the animals’ recalcitrance. As teams rallied to chase them out, “the deer had other things in mind. Several volunteers reported that one had looked them right in the eye and run past them back the way they had come, deeper into the garden. It all made for

great stories for the after-chase coffee.” Two years and countless person-hours of shouting and stomping later, the herd was whittled down to three. Deer had nibbled to the bone all 30 of ceanothus “Julia Phelps”, a so-called deer shrub, according to Walsh. Finally, under the direction of Fish and Game, the garden foundation authorized the building of a baited deer corral at the northeast end of the garden. It went up in 2007, fencing one acre of range land. A one-way gate allowed deer to enter from the garden — but not to return. They would be released through another gate. With irresistible bait and a bit of patience, stalwart gardeners finally enticed the last deer to quietly mosey into the enclosure. “Finally the day was won by the smell of apples! And a one-way gate,” Walsh wrote in an email. These days the cultivated portions of the Humboldt Botanical Garden are no longer lonesome moonscape beds dotted with tiny plants. Named gardens are voluptuous with bush and bloom, foliage wildly pushing into the winding paths. The ceanothus “Julia Phelps” are a husky 4-feet tall and 6-feet wide. The former wranglers weed, dig and prune in deer-free abundance. Volunteers and staffers regularly patrol and mend the heavy gauge, 7-foottall game fence. And at times, in the mists of a late winter dawn, some hungry doe taps her nose on the entry gate, eyeing the roses beyond.l Terry Kramer, a freelance writer, is also site manager of the Humboldt Botanical Garden. “DECEMBER 28, 2006,” BY FRANK LAPENA.

Contemporary Traditions By Ken Weiderman


n the angled October light of his Orleans home, Brian Tripp slips a simple hitch knot over the leg of his latest woodpecker sculpture and raises it to just above eye level. Like many of Tripp’s sculptures, the bird is a deceptively simple assembly of branches, shaved redwood fragments, matte-black acrylic paint and carefully selected stones. Stripes of red and white compliment the black form, while small triangular mirrors adorn each feather. Hanging from Tripp’s strong, sinewy arm, the bird spins, bouncing fragments of sunlight across his chest. Tripp created this new piece for a group show with Leatrice Mikkelson and Frank LaPena this month at Piante Gallery’s seventh annual Native American art show. This particular woodpecker is named Icarus. His head angles, agonizingly eyeing the ground. His wings fold back as if he’s falling. A rock duct-taped to one of its legs gives the bird a rakish tilt. As Tripp stands on his modest back porch, the Klamath babbles in the background and birds flit and chirp above. The Karuk artist slowly rotates Icarus, a reinterpretation of the Greek tragedy that, coming from a Native American, can be seen as a warning, alerting the rest of us to our potentially arrogant demise. However, Tripp’s sculpture is more than a cautionary tale. In its effortless blend of disparate cultural ingredients, this bird also exemplifies the multifaceted beauty often seen in contemporary Native American art. Modern masters like Tripp, Mikkelson and LaPena fluently balance

Native American symbols and imagery in understated harmony with western aesthetics. Icarus may be falling, but over the last several decades, Indian art has been consistently on the rise. Eureka artist Leatrice Mikkelson has seen this ascension first hand. Art has been a constant throughout her life, and as a Bay Area master’s student in the ‘60s, she sought a professor who could teach her about contemporary Native American art. Even at UC Berkeley, she found no such expert. After graduating, Mikkelson struggled to find a gallery that would accept her art. Although her Western training was evident, her art was also deeply influenced by her Navajo, Cherokee and Wintu heritage. Gallery owners considered it “primitive,” she says, and “simply didn’t have a clue for anything about Native American art, especially a modern artist.” Frustrated, Mikkelson put her professional aspirations aside and actively sought out opportunities and venues for contemporary Native American artists. Through these efforts, she met fellow artists like Brian Tripp and Frank LaPena. As a young boy, Frank LaPena was sent to a federal boarding school and didn’t return to seek out his immediate Wintu family until after high school. The experience established within him a deep understanding of the importance of his ancestral home and how the land and his tribe connect him to life both spiritually and physically. Since his first solo show in 1960, LaPena’s prints, paintings and sculptures have been informed by the aesthetics of Western art, but place a higher priority on the teachings he received from elders in the Native American community. Now, as a professor emeritus

at CSU Sacramento and master dancer and singer, LaPena has worked toward the recognition of traditional Native American expressions as true art forms. His artwork references traditions such as dancing and singing through form and design, weaving together his experiences in both Western and Native American cultures. When LaPena begins painting, he doesn’t have an end result in mind. He stays open to influences from both the physical and spiritual worlds. For “December 28, 2006,” LaPena began by thinking about fire and how Indians’ homes were burned in attempts to drive them from their native lands. As he worked, a face emerged. A week later he learned that two close friends had died on the same day he was painting. After that, LaPena pushed beyond fire and flame to incorporate elements that symbolized the passing of life and time. Separated into quadrants, the lower left corner of the painting

glows with streaks of dandelion yellow, while shafts of red reach up into an area of flaming fuchsia. To the right, the form of a bird emerges from flames, its body dressed in long strokes of pine green, turquoise and garnet. It peers across the painting to a large triangle of ivory, raked with a palette knife to resemble streaks of rain. The quadrants are balanced by circular elements, evoking the cyclical nature of life, death and renewal. Tripp, Mikkelson and LaPena each rely on a process that involves a personal journey, an exploration of visual imagery without a predetermined end. Their images connect an awareness of their heritage with the intimate experiences of living in the modern world. Traditions are alive in their work, even if those traditions have been envisioned through a contemporary lens. Piante Gallery will hold a reception for the artists on Nov. 2 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. ● • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, OCT. 31, 2013

your mouth like the worst bon-bon ever. Proceed with caution. Cockroaches: I am never going to eat a cockroach. I have standards. But they and certain species of beetles are said to be excellent roasted over a fire like popcorn. Slugs: Difficult to cook but some are apparently edible! I am told they have a consistency similar to tilapia. All we need are a few motivated slug wranglers, and Humboldt is poised to corner the artisan market on these slimy delicacies.

make a lot of noise. But they’re easy to obtain, as most pet stores carry them as food for reptiles. My sources at the Fortuna Pet Shoppe say they have a surprising number of people interested in cricket cuisine. If you stick them in the fridge for an hour before go time, it should slow them down. Grasshoppers: Easy to catch in the high grass during late summer. Meaty, crunchy and delicious, they’re very versatile insects. (See recipe.) Grubs/larvae/mealworms: If you want to avoid the more … textured experience of eating a multi-legged critter, grubs or larvae are a good choice. You can fry them over low heat with your favorite spices, add them to a soup or dehydrate them. Crispy grubs make an excellent snack on the go, and they’re much more interesting than almonds! Spiders: There’s a little town halfway between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap in Cambodia that’s famous for its fried spiders. Unfortunately, I got there offseason and had to eat grubs instead. Some spiders, obviously, are poisonous. Do your research — special orders might be the way to go. Also, biting into the body of a spider means having its guts gush into

These make a fine addition to your favorite burrito fixings. There should be just enough beans and salsa to complement the crunchiness of the bugs, but not enough of anything to overpower their presence. Ingredients and method: Okay, this is where we get to the disgusting part about eating bugs. There is no good way to kill a grasshopper prior to cooking it, so you have to channel your inner 7-year-old boy and torture the poor hoppers before throwing them into the pan. Fortunately, I had a 7-year-old boy at my disposal, my nephew, who was enraptured with the process. You need about half a coffee can of insects to make this dish. (I experimented with this recipe prior to learning about putting them in the fridge first, and I couldn’t figure out how to measure with them jumping around in panic.) Heat up about a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan, and add the spices of your choice. Once the oil is hot, prepare the grasshoppers. Brace yourself: You need to tear off their inedible wings prior to throwing them in the pan. They will squirm and die, and then their meaty interiors will burst out of their exoskeletons from the heat. I’m so sorry, but how do you think your hamburger got made? Meat ain’t pretty. The grasshoppers must be prepared quickly in order to cook them evenly. I recommend having one person poised with the fork to turn them in the pan and take the cooked ones out, while another de-wings them and throws them to their death. Sprinkle with salt and cayenne pepper and enjoy! Should you be willing to overlook child labor laws, my nephew is available for hire. l

Fried Grasshoppers

Anything’s good when you deep-fry it.

es, eating insects is disgusting. Not the actual eating part — I had some fried grasshoppers in Laos that were, well, sublime is not an overstatement. But I didn’t have to cook them. Cooking insects is a whole other barrel of fish, to mix metaphors. But the brave new world of entomophagy is all the rage, so this Halloween, why not serve up a dish that will put your cousin’s “zombie hand” gelatin dessert to shame? Insects are easy to prepare, inexpensive to buy and an environmentally responsible source of protein. They are a staple food across the globe, and quickly gaining ground in fashionable restaurants here in the U.S. So why don’t we eat them? It’s probably the ick factor. I mean, they’re bugs. But, really, how much ickier are they than your average cut of low-quality meat? And — important point here — if you’re afraid of them tasting gross, guess what? They taste like whatever it is you cook them in. Garlic and onion crickets? Oh yes. Wasabi grubs? Yes, please. Chocolate fondue grasshoppers? Yes, yes, yes! Here’s your quick and dirty guide to your next bug buffet: Crickets: Crickets smell bad and they

The 21-and-over show is at 9:30 p.m., tickets are $25 at People’s Records, Wildberries, The Works and World Famous Productions online.

As usual, 9 p.m. and $5 at the door. Or you can get out of the Arcata mayhem and try a little Likwefi with Guns & Barrels at Trinidad Town Hall. This Escape from Arcata Halloween Party fundraiser for the skate park is all ages and will have a nice surf/Caribbean theme going on with local artist and all around rad dude Matt Beard live painting. Bring board shorts, a horrible Hawaiian shirt, flippy floppies and some sand to put down someone’s pants to put the trick in trick-or-treating.

Day of the Dead

In keeping with all things bumping around in the night, Saturday, or Dia de los Muertos, will see big time beatmasher Minnesota at the ATL with kaleeating whomp artist G Jones. If you’re into bass music, don’t miss these two. You will find me in front waving my arms about and grinning stupidly. (It’s what I do. I call it dancing.) Show is at 9:30 p.m. for $20 at the door or $15 in advance from People’s Records, DTA, Wildberries, The Works and online at World Famous Productions.

ack before the Romans went and conquered most of the known world, simple Celtic/ pagan folk were camping out in little villages in Western Europe. Every year on the 31st of October, as daylight hours became scarce, they celebrated the New Year in a party that made Coachella look like a Sunday cometo-Jesus meeting. They sang and danced and communed with the spirits of their dead ancestors. After a couple thousand years of homogenizing the holiday with the Romans, the Christians and your favorite candy corporations, we get modern day Halloween. The good news: We still like to party.  And party we shall. There are enough costumed musical shenanigans going on in Humboldt to (possibly) wake the dead. We shall see.  

The Fred Hersch Trio will be bringing some artfully designed piano based music to the Fulkerson Recital Hall at HSU on Monday at 8 p.m. for $15 or $10 if you’re a student or a senior. Greensky Bluegrass will shake up Humboldt Brews on Tuesday at 9 p.m. for $20.  Not a bad week to bathe your brain in good tunes, just remember to keep your head on your shoulders.  Happy Halloween, Humboldt! l

Hey, McGUinty!

Dogma, “Likes” and Antsy Love By Jessica McGuinty


ey McGuinty!

My sister and I have been rebuilding a friendship after a falling out. Recently we’ve been talking more and connecting on Facebook. She is amazing and I love her! Lately I’ve noticed lots of “extreme” posts that shocked me. I can see where she is coming from, but it made me think that there is more about each other that we haven’t shared. I posted a fact sheet contradicting a post she made that was blatant dogma. I didn’t comment, just tried to suggest that maybe you should know the facts about major social issues you’re broadcasting opinions about. Nothing happened. I asked a journalist friend and she said, “People always seem a lot more extreme, more than they really are, on Facebook. It’s a platform designed to generate mass replication and not necessarily genuine views.” I think my friend is right, but still, how can I ignore the Jesus posts? It’s worse than the most graphic horror films. — Slightly Freaked Out SLIGHTLY FREAKED OUT! Your journalist friend summed it up pretty well, eh? For some people, facts don’t inform opinions, rather, they view their opinions as facts. It sounds like that’s what is going on with your sister. To her, you’re the one who’s wrong for contradicting her with your fact-checking post. You can literally ignore her posts, by

hiding them in your feed. True, you’ll also be hiding her non-offensive posts, but if it keeps your blood pressure down and your relationship on track, it’s worth it. When inspiration strikes, you can go to her page, see what she’s up to, post a friendly “Howdy, Sis!” and get the hell out before you’re subjected to more of what you don’t like. Your Facebook feed is yours. You wouldn’t fill it with posts from, say, Rush Limbaugh, so there’s no need to be force-fed stuff you don’t like by anyone, even family.

Hey McGuinty!

I spend a lot of time on social media, as does my friend. We’re both funny people and I often “like” her posts on Facebook, but she never reciprocates. I wouldn’t care except I know she sees them, so it seems like a deliberate “thing” for her to not like them. I know it’s silly. I teased her about it and then stopped because she just rolled her eyes and shrugged. What is the social etiquette here? Am I being too sensitive? Or is she just needing to be queen bee? — All A-Twitter Over Likes ALL A-TWITTER! Gurrrlllll! I can tell I’ll be citing my “Facebook makes us all 12, all the time” theory a lot here. Because it’s true. I know you, and I know you’re not 12, in age or maturity, yet look at how this has you, well, all a-twitter! (Great name, BTW. I’d

totally “like” that on Facebook if I could.) She’s intimidated by you. It’s written all over your un-liked Facebook wall and her rolling eyes. She likes the imbalance in the like-fest because it puts her above you in that aspect of your friendship. This assumes that her lack of likes is deliberate, which we can’t know for sure. Does she “like” other people’s posts? Does it matter? It matters, I get it. Even though we know Facebook makes us all 12, we can’t help it. It’s human nature to want to be liked, and Facebook has taken that to a very literal level. Are you being too sensitive? Yeah, I think so. That’s cool though, you’re totally not the only person to ever feel that way. We’re making the social etiquette up as we go along, because for every one of you, there’s someone else who’s all, “Dayum, back off stalker, why you liking every single thing I do on Facebook?!” Go dark. Starve her out. If Facebook insists on making us all 12, then dammit, be 12. Pack up your likes and go home. Save your clicker finger for someone more appreciative. Or not. Or, realize it’s just Facebook and keep being your generous self, feeding her starving ego. Let her be 12 and let you keep being [age withheld].

Hey McGuinty!

months. He’s 33 and I’m 23, which hasn’t been an issue until recently. He’s ready to settle down and I’m not. I love him and our relationship is wonderful, but I’m not ready. How do I decide between staying with a man that cares deeply for me and feeling like I’ll be stuck wondering what I’m missing? — Feeling Rushed FEELING RUSHED! You already answered your question. You’re not ready. You can be in love with each other and be compatible in many other ways but if the timing isn’t right that’s kind of a huge deal breaker. If you’re already predicting that you’ll feel stuck — you’ll probably feel stuck. And that’s not fair to either of you. Your choices here are to either call it off and let him find someone with a more compatible timeline or ask him to respect yours and slow things down while you catch up to each other. Only you know which is right for you, but given your age and his, my gut tells me the former makes more sense. You have a lot of living to do, and it sounds like you know that. He probably does too. ●

The Dear Departed

Calacas: cute and creepy Dia de los Muertos tchotchkes.

After the costumed bacchanalia of Halloween comes Dia de los Muertos (that’s the Day of the Dead for those of you who took French in high school), a kind of welcome home party for those who’ve passed on. Get a little taste of the tradition at Los Bagels shops this week — check out the ofrendas (altars to the dear departed) and whimsical skeleton-filled art. In Eureka, don’t miss Greta Turney’s bony R2-D2. If you’re dying for a snack, try some lightly sweet and spiced pan de muerto (dead bread) loaves. If you’re not already celebrating with friends and family, join the celebration at Sunrise Cemetery in Fortuna — which has been busy lately for a graveyard — on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Kristy Carlsen of College of the Redwoods gives a history of the holiday at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., and Real de Mexico plays mariachi tunes from 11:30 a.m. There’s also a walking tour and a chance to do some traditional arts and crafts. If it gets chilly, warm your bones with some pan de muerto and a nutty Mexican hot chocolate. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

The sideshow takes center stage when the Enigma (also known as that guy who’s, like, covered in jigsaw puzzle tattoos) and his partner Serana Rose visit Synapsis Studio in Eureka on Saturday with their Showdevils act. Ever see a guy drive a nail through his tongue? Would you like to? Then show up at 10 p.m. with $10 and a strong stomach for some post-Vaudeville music and stunts that make the guys from Jackass look like, well, jackasses. And if you need to see weird tricks with straws and sinus passages one more time, the wince-inducing duo is at Nocturnum on Tuesday at 9 p.m. for another $10. Frankly, the mystery wrapped in a riddle and tattooed in a puzzle that is the Enigma draws a crowd just standing around. Feel free to stare when he signs copies of the new Ripley’s Believe it or Not book (that’s his mug on the cover) at Northtown Books on Saturday at 10 a.m. Jealous of his inked-up hide? Don’t hate. Make an appointment and the Enigma will tattoo his signature puzzle piece on you himself. It’s a start. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

There’s someone for everyone.

Book It Tuesday is kind of a big night for book signings. For the politically minded: Bill Ayers is at Northtown Books at 7 p.m. with his new book, Public Enemy: Confessions of an American Dissident. The University of Chicago professor and author of Fugitive Days will read from his latest work, which details the turmoil that followed the 2008 presidential debate in which Barack Obama was asked about his ties to Ayers, a former member of the Weather Underground. Ayers’ personal and professional life were turned upside-down by the ensuing media frenzy, professional blacklisting and death threats. Should be radical. For odd ducks: Local literary legend Jim Dodge is over at HSU at 7:30 p.m. in the Goodwin Forum reading from an oldie but a goody, Fup. Originally published in 1983, the story, about a gambler, his grandson and their adopted moonshine-swilling mallard, is having a bit of a revival as Humboldt State and College of the Redwoods’ book of the year. If you’ve never read it or if it’s been a while, grab a copy. Fup is warm, funny and short enough to get through before Tuesday night. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

Risky Stunts

Counselor is tired, Grandpa is spry By John J. Bennett


THE COUNSELOR. Cormac McCarthy will go down as one of America’s immortal literary voices. But that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s a great screenwriter. Case in point: this new venture with director Ridley Scott. Sure, it’s got McCarthy trademarks in spades. But his tendencies toward misanthropy, deceptively simple prose (at least in his later work), elliptical structure and general thematic darkness tend to work better on the page than they do onscreen. (It’s a testament to the technical skill and narrative savvy of the brothers Coen that their No Country For Old Men is every bit as watchable as McCarthy’s book is readable.) At least part of the problem lies in the author’s teaming with a director who’s stronger as a visual stylist than he is as a storyteller. This script may well have had the potential for greatness, but that greatness would have to be born of the grit and grime and internal terror at the story’s core, whereas Scott really only pays lip service to those traits, relying on a startlingly prominent — admittedly talented — cast, dolled up in couture and diamonds, and talking tough under gray skies. McCarthy’s work often scares and always pleases me because he seems to access the darkness so easily; this disappoints me because it feels forced, phony and dull. The titular attorney (Michael Fassbender) lives in the rarefied air of the South Texas upper crust. He drives a Bentley, wears Armani and lunches at the polo club with his fiancée (Penélope Cruz), whose giant engagement ring was procured for him by his diamond guy in Amsterdam. He also keeps company with some of his well-heeled clients, among them a flamboyant nightclub owner named Reiner (Javier Bardem) and his razor-sharp, super-freak lady friend

Malkina (Cameron Diaz). When Reiner isn’t tooling out into the desert in the Ferrari to have a barbecue and watch Malkina’s pet cheetahs hunt rabbits, he’s moving weight across the border with help from a mysterious middleman in J.R. Ewing duds (Brad Pitt). The counselor has run into some money troubles, so he scrapes together what he can and throws in on a major deal with this motley crew. The whole thing quickly goes sideways, and the movie becomes a slow march toward destroying everybody’s lives. There’s a lot of weirdness at play in The Counselor, and for me that means there’s a lot to like, but the elements never fully cohere. The production is impressively expensive looking, the cast excellent, and some scenes genuinely off-putting and memorable. But Scott’s need to work on a large scale and McCarthy’s self-conscious tweaking of his prose style work against the intimacy and delicate dread of the story; instead of tension, the ultimate effect is boredom. R. 117m. BAD GRANDPA. I tend to like the Jackass guys, probably for the same reasons everybody else does. They seem good-natured, fun-loving and supportive of each other’s weirdness. Among them, elder statesman Johnny Knoxville has always struck me as the voice of reason and kindness, even when he’s shooting himself or giving his buddies paper cuts between their fingers. So, while I don’t really go in for all of their pranks or the gross-out stuff, I had reason to expect that I’d like Bad Grandpa. And I did, even if it is essentially more of the same. Irving Zisman (Knoxville) is a pretty bad grandpa indeed. After the debacle of his wife’s funeral service he gets his penis stuck in a soda machine, then sets off on a road trip to deliver his 8-year-old grandson Billy (Jackson Nicoll) to his deadbeat

The whole thing quickly goes sideways, and the movie becomes a slow march toward destroying everybody’s lives.

No country for subtle clothes.

dad in North Carolina. Along the way, Irving and Billy bond over six packs and hidden-camera pranks played on an unwitting Middle American populace. Like any Jackass project, Bad Grandpa delivers lame sex jokes, scatology and genuinely ingenious comedy in almost equal measure. There are almost as many misses are there hits, but those hits are ballsy and funny enough to carry the day. As I mentioned, Knoxville and Co. aren’t doing anything new here, but what they do is courageous and original, if not particularly artful. I admire it even when I don’t like watching it, and Bad Grandpa minimizes the coarser stuff, playing up the funny, so it’s generally pretty enjoyable. R. 92m. — John J. Bennett

An ancient band of vampires camouflaged in the trappings of middle America and roving the interstates in search of special children to prey on, a protagonist tortured by alcoholism and past traumas both supernatural and self-inflicted, a little girl wielding an awesome and terrible power — these are the ingredients of Stephen King’s newest novel, and they make for a compelling story. Doctor Sleep has some trouble getting started; the first few dozen pages are taken up with the awkward, utilitarian work of bridging the wide gap between it and King’s 1977 novel The Shining, which it follows. Only once the narrative is firmly rooted in the head of protagonist Dan Torrance, the now-adult child who barely survived The Shining, does it really begin to chug along under its own power. Other than occasional and brief derailments, it sustains that power through to a whiz-bang finale — and at that point, the hasty connecting of the two novels becomes well worth it, because all of The Shining’s most frightening ghosts have been reanimated to play their parts. While it doesn’t achieve the epic heights of King’s best, neither does it suffer from the bloat and aimlessness of his worst; Doctor Sleep is, in many ways, a solid horror offering. What sets it apart from the standard-issue spectrum of …all of adjectives applied to The Shining’s King — blood-curdling most to spine-tingling to haunting and everyfrightening thing in between — is ghosts how personal the novel have been can feel. Alcoholics Anonymous reanimated is as central to the plot to play and protagonist of Doctheir parts. tor Sleep as it is to the author. The differences between the older, wiser King and, in King’s words, “the well-meaning alcoholic who wrote The Shining,” lend an authenticity and poignancy to Dan Torrance’s struggles with alcohol and his retrospection about the alcoholic father who died in The Shining. In a sense, King is running through AA’s 12 steps himself here, inventorying and amending the harm wrought in his darker years on, and through, his own characters. If Doctor Sleep introduces another adjective into King’s vast repertoire, it might be “heartbreaking”. — Anthony Correale • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013

Field notes




sion, as was briefly explored in the third part of the trilogy. In Richard Linklater’s movie Waking Life, the protagonist keeps waking up, only to discover he’s still dreaming (bet you know that one). I’ve heard Buddhists and other truth-seekers insist on the possibility of experiencing an unfiltered view of reality, “an unsurpassed, complete, perfect enlightenment,” as the seventh century Heart Sutra has it. But how can we ever know what’s really real? This isn’t just ivory-tower sophistry. Since the 1920s, quantum physics experiments have routinely shown that reality depends on whether anyone’s watching, the “tree falling in the forest” conundrum. In the notorious “double-slit” experiment, a photon behaves like a bullet when someone’s watching, passing through either one of two slits. Absent an observer, it behaves like a wave, seeming to pass through both slits simultaneously. The quantum universe is illogical to “macro” world inhabitants like ourselves. If this is the sort of stuff that keeps you awake at night, I recommend Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe, in which stem cell researcher/ philosopher Robert Lanza argues that mainstream science has completely missed the boat in saying that conscious life is created by the universe. Not so, says Lanza, it was the other way around: Consciousness created the universe. No consciousness, no universe. I’ll get back to you on that. l Barry Evans ( will be signing copies of his third Field Notes compendium (“Bride of Field Notes”) at Eureka Books during Arts Alive on Saturday, Nov. 2 from 6 p.m.

he City Council in Monza, the northern Italian city known for its Formula 1 Grand Prix, is barring pet owners from keeping their goldfish in bowls. ... The measure’s sponsor said, “A fish kept in a bowl has a distorted view of reality and suffers because of this.” — New York Times, 2004. Commenting on this in the October 2010 Scientific American, physicists Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow wondered whether the goldfish version of reality is any less authentic than ours. “For all we know, we, too, may spend our entire lives staring out at the world through a distorting lens,” they said. The what is real? game has a long history. Three hundred years ago, the Irish empiricist George Berkeley got the ball rolling by noting that the only thing we can perceive are our perceptions: We can’t observe the world directly. Color, sound, shapes, harmonies, aromas and tastes exist only in our heads. We can’t even be sure that there is an outside world whence all these perceptions originate. We don’t, of course, adopt this point of view in our day-to-day lives; we brake for pedestrians, we don’t ponder whether they’re fantasies in our minds. We live our lives (and scientists investigate) based on the notion of “realism,” the belief that an external world does exist, with properties independent of who’s looking at it. As I’ve discussed previously in this column (April 28, 2011), the Matrix movies presume that what people take to be the real world is actually computer-generated. You can (if you’re Keanu Reeves) wake up and have Laurence Fishburne welcome you to the real world — but you might be left wondering if it’s all nesting dolls. Maybe that real world is yet another illu-
