The awful thing about ants They truck across my kitchen counter. Bathroom sink and floor. Occupy my home and breach parameters. The spray poison reeks And fails And I surrender. They find sustenance in the discards Hidden under my kitchen sink. And when a lone explorer climbs my walls or traverses my coffee table I marvel at the tiny feet. And gently blow when I need to. They land like paratroopers. And then I plan a party and know my normal Isn’t. I offer fatal bait and they gorge. Carry this hemlock to their nests and I awake to carnage in my bathroom. A survivor walks a crooked line as it carries a body across the checkered floor. Staggering, I imagine, until it lays its burden down with the other dead The living have collected in a tiny mound In front of my deep, white tub. The bodies stick to a damp paper towel and I throw them in my garbage. And must do it again and again before my guests arrive. I cover them So my guests So I Don’t see them. — Lynette C. Mullen

Editor: In regards to the story about unpaid internships (“Intern Unrest,” May 30), I wanted to make very clear what my understanding of the law is. Please note, I am not a lawyer but I have studied the details of the law. Unpaid internships are legal for nonprofit and government employers as well as schools. Also, it is legal for a for-profit employer to offer an unpaid internship for which the employee is getting credit. Moreover, the U.S. Department of Labor has put out Fact Sheet No. 71, entitled “Internship Programs Under the Fair Labor Standards Act.” This fact sheet outlines six criteria that for-profit employers must meet in order to not pay wages to their interns. The criteria basically ensure that the position is more like

a training or job shadowing experience than a job. The only kind of unpaid internship that is punishable by law would be with a for-profit (private sector) employer if the student is not getting credit and the above criteria are not met. The example written about in the article of the internship through Power Save Green Campus is a legal unpaid internship. I am grateful to our many local businesses who offer unpaid and paid internships to students. These experiences are great opportunities for students to gain transferable skills for their professional portfolios. Joy Soll, Westhaven Editor: In “Intern Unrest” Grant Scott-Goforth paraphrases Annie Bolick-Floss that “ … the national agency that accredits HSU’s school of social work doesn’t allow paid
internships for credit, so the department only arranges unpaid internships.” I wanted to clarify that indeed the accrediting agency, Council on Social Work Education, does support paid internships and has for as long as I can remember. HSU’s Department of Social Work faculty have worked hard to develop these when possible. However, most nonprofit agencies’ budgets have been decimated in the last decade, so program budgets most often cannot accommodate paid internships. In spite of this, we have over the years had some internships that are paid or come with a stipend. CSWE requires that these internships, like unpaid ones, be focused on the student’s learning and professional development. Detailed assessments are completed by the student’s program supervisors accompanied by frequent faculty visits to support the student and supervisor in assuring that the experience facilitates a student’s learning process related to the knowledge, skills and ethics of the profession. As noted in the NCJ article, this requires considerable time and effort on the part of agency staff, and the department is eternally grateful to all the social workers who devote their energy to supporting the students. In the 1970s when I was in graduate school, many of us had paid internships. “It will be a great day when our schools have all the money they need, and our Air Force has to have a bake-sale to buy a bomber,” (Robert Fulghum). … Likewise, when our social services have all the funds they need to effectively serve disenfranchised communities. Pamela Brown, Professor Emerita, HSU Department of Social Work, Arcata
What’s Wrong with Septic? Editor: As usual Ryan Burns shows his bias against the effort supervisors are making to write a GPU that includes all the people in Humboldt County (North Coast Journal News Blog, May 30, see also page 13). It’s sad that he is opposed to an open democratic process. His latest tirade includes an attack on Supervisor Fennell for supporting alternative septic systems (compost toilets). Mr. Burns states this will create development in the rural areas. If he bothered to find out anything about the issue he would know that a percolation test for a standard system is required before a permit is issued, so no parcels will be developed that are not suitable for development. Supervisor Fennell’s backing of alternative septic systems is an important

ecological change our planning system needs to embrace to prevent pollution now occurring in many areas. Standard septic systems often put out a nutrient plume that pollutes rivers and bays, creating both nutrient and biological hazards. In Trinidad, bacteria has been measured in the bay and landowners have agreed to periodic inspections of their systems. This may not be enough. I have worked for years on legislating alternative water/septic systems. California and international law now allows people to divert their greywater nutrients into their landscaping. This reduces water use and recycles nutrients, and by reducing nutrient plumes it protects bays and rivers. Compost toilets have come a long way over the years and have been proven safe. My thanks to Supervisor Fennell for advancing this important environmental issue. Ryan, why are you opposed to recycling and environmental protection? Thomas Grover, Redway
Saw Safely Editor: The image of Colin Billings (“Humboldt at Work,” May 23), wearing his “Humboldt” cap backward and biting his Stihl into a fir tree, may have made a fine winning photo, but it is perhaps more useful as a poster illustrating how not to run a chainsaw: no helmet, no eye protection, no gloves, no chaps. (I couldn’t see whether or not he was wearing steel-toed boots, but somehow I doubt it.) A chainsaw is the most dangerous tool most of us will ever use. It
is crucial that we take very seriously that spinning, razor sharp (one hopes), pendulous blade powered by a six horsepower engine weighing 15 pounds. I hire restoration crews for Siskiyou Land Conservancy’s North Coast timberlands, usually a dozen guys wielding powerful Stihl 460s (which look like the saw Colin was using). These guys are typically big and very strong. Even the most macho among them would never consider using a chainsaw without proper protection. Greg King, Arcata
Maven’s Miscues and Merits Editor: In re: Marcy Burstiner’s Media Maven column (“Hum-CPRA,” May 23): So I’m a perfessor of this, ’kay? So I’m sitting and Richard Salzman sits down next to me! And I’m so like, you know, right? But he’s all “Excuse me?” So whatever. But that’s what I mean about, you know, evil people? Who do things in politics? They’re so like “Excuse me?” No way, Jose! I mean, why isn’t everyone like, duh! It’s like so much swearing in the North Coast Journal, it’s so obvious, duh! Am I right? So. Evil people. They’re so easy to spot. My publisher just gives me a list of them, and I’m all “Ooh, this one’s kinda cute, is he really so … ?” And she’s like “He talks to her who’s all over him” and I’m like OMG I mean OMFG, let’s get real. continued on next page

So I’m all “ick” and “you suck” and stuff, but I mean really, for explaining evil, is being a journalism perfessor enough? I am like so totally … this just really grosses me out. Does it gross you out? I’m like so totally grossed out too. I’m glad we can talk like this. Charley Custer, Redway Editor: Thanks to Ms. Burstiner for the article about “HumCPR” vs “our county.” The relationship between Estelle Fennell and the HumCPR is clear and blatant; enough said. Most of the county law money went to the “Tooby problem.” The Tooby ranch was in the “Williamson Act” with respect to taxes. Toobys got a much lower tax rate for keeping this land agricultural; there are tax mechanisms for taking the land out of the Williamson benefit however they sold it without doing that. The “beef” when they sold the land was not how it was to be used but where was the missing tax money if the land usage was to be changed. At least that is how I see it. Sonia Baur, Garberville
Noodles, Prayers and Lawsuits Editor: Eureka City Council likes religion and prayers in their public meetings (“Tough on Prayer?” Jan. 31), but others don’t. Elizabeth Alves (McKinleyville Press, May 1) suggested that if government is involved, then any religion should have the equal right to give the invocation at these public meetings, not just those selected by the city. She philosophized: “What if a member of the Church of Casual Sex was elected to a city council. Would supporters of public prayer want someone praying
aloud for a Devine Hookup to open a meeting?” The possibility is not so remote. Another battle over religious liberty erupted in New Jersey recently when Motor Vehicle Commission employees called police (!) to prevent Aaron Williams from wearing a pasta strainer on his head in his driver license photo. The police report stated that he claimed “his pasta strainer was a religious head covering and it was his right to wear it for his license photo.” As a Pastafarian, Williams is a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, an organization founded in part to protest the teaching of creationism in schools. “The universe was created by the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and the strainer is a showing of my devoutness to the religion.” After police interrogation (and bullying?), Williams eventually agreed to not wear his strainer. If Eureka’s Mayor Frank Jager isn’t trying to use his office to coerce others to become Christians, then he should have no objection to inviting protestor Carole Beaton to give the “invocation” at a city council meeting. Charles Wilson, Orick
Dubious About Span Plan Editor: The Humboldt County Department of Public Works has completed a preliminary environmental study (PES) which has been approved by Caltrans along with mention of further requirements for “the Jacoby Creek Bridge replacement project” (“Bridging the Divide,” May 9). I’ve always been aware of general bureaucratic processes required for interagency requests, grants and the like. But I have a difficult
time seeing anything vague about the word “replacement.” Furthermore, the very first piece of information filled in is a federal project number followed by a “Final Design (Expected Start Date)” of 2014-15. And if that information isn’t troubling enough, then how about the box designated for “Detailed Project Description” which has been filled in with: “The proposed project consists of replacing the existing single-lane covered wooden pony-truss structure with a reinforced concrete structure that has no load limitations.” Supervisor Mark Lovelace has most recently said (on community website Nextdoor Bayside): “THERE IS NO PLAN TO DEMOLISH THIS BRIDGE AND NO DECISIONS HAVE BEEN MADE.” I see an extreme disconnect between that and the statements on the PES. I see a serious breach of my trust by engineer Chris Whitworth who met with members of the community on May 7, insisting we were premature with our concerns, and who signed the completed PES just three days later on May 10. Citizens must communicate their concern for keeping the red covered bridge to Mark Lovelace at mlovelace@ co.humboldt.ca.us. I am sure he is in a difficult position unless there is momentum from the public. Charlotte Dixon, Bayside

Bay [T]rail Update No. 6
ublisher note: If I had my reporter’s hat on, I could tell you a lot of behind-the-scenes drama and painfully slow progress on the Bay Trail, the link in the California Coastal Trail between Eureka and Arcata. But I can’t. I’m a Bay [T]rail Advocate — one of the lobbyists. From the beginning of my involvement, the agreement with the Journal editorial department was they would not cover my off-duty hobbies, but I would continue to write updates in my column every once in a while. This is one of those times. Last week, Rees Hughes, a fellow member of the Bay [T]rail Advocates, wrote the following letter in support of the City of Arcata’s application for a $2.8 million federal TIGER grant. It’s all very competitive and we wish Arcata luck. If the city gets it, along with city funds and $1.5 million from Caltrans, it will have all the money in hand to complete the trail to Bracut. What’s next? Well, remember for the last decade we’ve had a “safety corridor” between the two cities on Highway 101? It is a corridor, yes, but it’s not particularly safe. The Humboldt County Association of Governments (city and county agencies), and Caltrans have all been working on a majorly expensive upgrade that needs the approval of the California Coastal Commission. One hearing is scheduled for September. Wouldn’t it make sense to build the Bay Trail along that six-mile strip at the same time as Caltrans fixes that “safety” corridor? That’s what we are hoping is “next.” In the meantime, here is Rees’ Bay [T]rail update: To Whom It May Concern: Beginning about 18 months ago, a coalition that grew to include some 400 individuals, a dozen community organizations, and a number of area businesses coalesced in an effort to
add new momentum to the creation of a multi-modal trail from Eureka to Arcata, along the perimeter of beautiful Humboldt Bay. Currently, the only option for cyclists and pedestrians is to use the shoulder of a treacherous six-mile stretch of freeway/expressway. The coalition includes members of our local medical community who see the health benefits of a Bay Trail; members of the environmental community who see the Bay Trail as a way of reducing our environmental footprint; businesses that see the potential attraction for visitors; and numerous other individuals who see immense safety benefits and are excited about an opportunity to complete a gap in the California Coastal Trail. For more than 15 years, Humboldt Bay bike-pedestrian alternatives have been the subject of a number of studies (Humboldt County Bicycle Facilities Planning Project, 1997; Humboldt Bay Trail Feasibility Study, 2001; the California Coastal Trail plan, 2003; Humboldt Bay Trail Feasibility Study: Arcata-Eureka, 2007; Humboldt County Coastal Trail Implementation Strategy, 2011). After considering a wide variety of options, these studies have repeatedly concluded that the best routing of the multipurpose trail uses the land west of U.S. Highway 101. We are ready to cease studying and begin building and using. The City of Arcata has developed detailed plans for a three-mile multipurpose paved path from Samoa Boulevard in Arcata along the west side of U.S. Highway 101 to the Bracut property. This would connect with a planned, approved, and funded trail that extends north from Samoa Boulevard to an area near Larsen Park in Arcata. Our coalition, the Bay [T]rail Advocates, enthusiastically supports the City of Arcata plan and proposal to create the trail to Bracut. We also believe that the completion of the northern portion of the Eureka– Arcata trail will serve as the catalyst for
completion of the southern half into Eureka. The southern effort achieved important momentum last year and that momentum continues to build. In 2012 Bay [T]rail Advocates worked extensively with local governance (the cities of Eureka and Arcata, the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors, and the Humboldt County Association of Governments) as well as Caltrans, the Coastal Commission, and the North Coast Railroad Authority (NCRA). A critical step forward came from the NCRA at its December board meeting. The Board voted (1) to authorize some exceptions to its current trail policy to enable development of a trail within the railroad right-of-way and (2) to prioritize rail infrastructure restoration and trail development between Arcata and Eureka. HCOAG and the County of Humboldt have since commissioned more detailed engineering studies on the Bracut-to-Eureka portion of the trail to be completed by this fall. This analysis will allow the search for funding to begin in earnest. In addition, Caltrans has already pledged $1 million toward the construction of the Eureka-Arcata trail. (Feb. 6, 2013, Caltrans letter to California Coastal Commission.) Eureka and Arcata are the two largest communities along the Pacific Coast north of San Francisco. Since Arcata and McKinleyville are already linked with a very popular bike-ped bridge and trail, more than 70 percent of the population of Humboldt County will potentially benefit by the completion of the Arcata-Bracut link in the California Coastal Trail and, eventually, the link from Bracut to Eureka.

Oysters, Beer and Cash Why Arcata Main Street wants even more money from an $87,000 festival By Grant Scott-Goforth

Last year the festival $80,000 netted Main Street $87,000 ($136,000 in total income, Oyster Festival Net $60,000 before festival expenses), down from $89,000 the year before. But the festival $40,000 wasn’t always so profitable. Arcata Main Street It took losses in 2000 and Year End Net 2005, and netted no more $20,000 than $17,000 in any year in between.

hen organizers of Arcata’s Oyster Festival announced they would charge a $10 admission fee this year, people went bonkers. “Elitism!” was the cry du jour. Organizers and supporters pleaded for calm, saying the fee would curtail the festival’s rowdiness and right Arcata Main Street’s listing finances. The ruckus has mostly subsided, but “are you going to Oyster Fest this year” is still a conversation-starter that can be overheard on buses, street corners and barstools. With the festival date nearing, the question remains: Exactly how dire is Main Street’s lot, and why does it need more from Oyster Fest? Main Street Arcata — officially known as Arcata Downtown Business Community Incorporated — formed in 1988 in the heart of the national “Main Street” movement, when cities around the U.S. were looking to revitalize their downtowns and promote local business. “The idea is to keep the downtown area alive — and to keep businesses alive,” said Ed Bernard, the owner of Libation wine shop and a member of the Arcata Main Street board of directors. Since then, the nonprofit organization has had its ups and downs, often ending its fiscal year in the red. Main Street has three main sources of income. It gets money from the city of Arcata — funding that has been declining in recent years. Main Street collects dues from its members — another source that’s been shrinking. And then there’s Oyster Fest, which struggled for years until Jennifer Koopman took over as executive

and 2006. It has fluctuated since then, but rose to $48,000 by the 2011-12 fiscal year. Main Street also paid $8,000 in benefits for Koopman’s position and $4,000 in payroll taxes. “She’s worth every penny we pay her,” Bernard said. Main Street Board President David Neyra, who owns Humboldt Outfitters, said the board has tried to bump up Koopman’s salary as her workload went up. In the past Koopman had part-time workers, student interns and other help, but lately she’s been short-handed. During its last fiscal year, Main Street also spent $7,000 on rent for its Jacoby’s Storehouse office, $6,000 on professional fees, and $32,000 on “other expenses,” which include insurance, utility bills and other costs. All the while, Main Street started to feel the tightening of its non-fest income. The city awarded Main Street more than $30,000 a year in redevelopment funds between 2008 and 2011 — money that the state gave cities to dole out for community projects. When the state pulled those funds, Arcata’s City Council voted in 2011 to give Main Street money from its general fund (lowering the amount it gave to other organizations, including the Chamber of Commerce, the Humboldt County Convention and Visitor Bureau and the Humboldt County Film Commission). Community Development Director Larry Oetker said other groups took “prorated reductions” to fund Main Street. “They were all proportionally reduced,” he said. The city gave Main Street $18,000 in the 2011-2012 fiscal year, and budgeted the same for this year. Main Street’s member dues have also diminished from an average of $14,000 a year between 1999 and 2007 to $8,600 this year. “We have a hard time keeping membership,’” Bernard said — but he declined to say why, saying he didn’t want to speak for other business owners. Koopman said she wasn’t certain why membership fell, but she had some ideas. The timing syncs up with the national recession, Koopman said, which forced businesses to cut down on expenses. Former board member Patrick Murphy, who resigned in January, said he thinks a lack of recruiting keeps new businesses from joining Main Street. “A lot of those businesses don’t see how Oyster Fest is helping them out,” he said, adding Main Street was more caught up in the Oyster Festival than working with downtown businesses. “Even as a board member my

public has comes from some general comments Koopman made, plus yearly Internal Revenue Service 990 forms that Main Street must fill out because it’s a charitable organization. By all accounts, the biggest moneymaker at Oyster Fest is beer. “We’ve been really dependent on alcohol sales in the past, and we don’t want to be,” Koopman said. “If it costs you $10 to get in and you buy one less beer, we’re OK with that.” Lost Coast Brewery Sales Director Briar Bush believes that attendees at Oyster Festival consume more beer than those at any festival of its kind in California. Last year, which he said was the pinnacle of beer sales, drinkers went through 150 kegs. (At 125 cups of beer to a keg, that’s 18,750 beers sold. At $6 a pop, that’s more than $112,000 — a good chunk of Oyster Fest’s $136,000 gross income last year.) Local breweries don’t sell beer directly to the festival — that’s done through a distributor. Humboldt Beer Distributors owner Al Cooper said his business supplies local beer to Oyster Fest for the “same price as anyone else.” The festival typically asks brewers to donate to the festival, but Bush — of Lost Coast Brewery — said the amount Oyster Festers drink is far too much for any one brewery to give away. Instead, Lost Coast Brewery and Mad River Brewery are splitting the cost of beer cups as a donation to this year’s festival. Though the Oyster Festival has turned a profit, Koopman says it isn’t enough to cover Main Street’s rising costs. “We’re always robbing Peter to pay Paul,” she said. Koopman said proceeds from the Oyster Festival help fund everything Main Street does, including Arts! Arcata and other plaza events. The Season of Wonder and Light — Main Street’s winter holiday promotion — cost the organization more than $15,000 last year, Koopman said. “We’re just trying to sustain our organization, of course,” she said. “Either there’s an Oyster Festival or there’s not. Without the Oyster Festival you wouldn’t be able to do any of those things.” Main Street ended its last fiscal year $585 in the hole, according to its federal tax filing for the period running from July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2012. Overall, its expenses have doubled from $52,000 in 1999 to $106,000 in 2012. Main Street’s biggest single expense is Koopman’s salary, which has grown 20 percent since she took over five years ago. The executive director position averaged just under $40,000 a year between 1999

Meet the County’s New Values Supervisors replace the principles guiding our future with a surprise new list By Ryan Burns
n Monday afternoon, the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors gave themselves a new compass. This instrument is designed to help them navigate the treacherous waters of the general plan update, a complex voyage through highly contentious policy decisions. The primary destination is an updated general plan, the document that governs land use decisions in Humboldt County’s unincorporated areas. Beyond that, the compass will serve to guide future amendments to the plan. On a journey like this, a good compass is essential. But here’s the thing: The county is now more than 13 years into this particular voyage. The destination is within view. And until Monday, county leaders were using a compass with an altogether different polarity. Here’s what happened. Last Thursday, 2nd District Supervisor Estelle Fennell sent county staff an email saying that she’d “been hearing from several people” about the guiding principles in the general plan update. These 12 principles, which were adopted unanimously by former boards, are meant to reflect community values. They’re the compass intended to guide the update process, and all but two of them were drafted in 2004 after a robust public input process that included dozens of meetings, hearings and workshops across the county, with input from more than 2,000 community members and a wide variety of interest groups. But Fennell felt they didn’t reflect community values accurately. In her email to staff she said she’d been “tossing around some ideas” of her own, and with help from 1st District Supervisor Rex Bohn she’d come up some new principles, which she’d put in writing “for discussion at Monday’s meeting.” Over the weekend, various interest groups sent out “action alerts,” and sure enough, supervisors’ chambers were packed come Monday afternoon. Much of the testimony recalled the acrimonious
meetings of years past, with developers lamenting the “no-growth” enviros, property rights advocates lamenting the war on their rural lifestyles and environmental advocates lamenting the war on nature. The fundamental divides over land use issues in the community were re-exposed. And yet, when the matter was turned back to the supervisors, Fennell argued that everyone is essentially on the same page. “We really all love living in this county, the rural lifestyle,” she said. “I think it’s time for us to move forward.” And with that, she proposed swapping out the existing guiding principles with the new set (to which she added a few words on the fly, at the suggestion of public speakers). Fennell defended the swift change of course by suggesting that Monday’s contentious hearing was sufficient public involvement. “This is a wonderful, wonderful thing,” she said after two hours of divided public commentary. “I believe so much in public participation, and this is the first time as supervisor that I’ve seen a full room.” She further justified the move by saying that over the years, she’d attended most of the Planning Commission meetings on the general plan update. Third District Supervisor Mark Lovelace countered that, like him when he was an environmental advocate, Fennell was paid to attend many of those meetings. She served nearly three years as executive director of the Humboldt Coalition for Property Rights, known as HumCPR. (Fennell recently voted to appoint that group’s leaders, Lee Ulansey and Bob Morris, to the county Planning Commission.) Lovelace also reminded the board of the work done in the past. “While we’ve had great input here today,” he said, “it pales in comparison to what went into developing the original guiding principles.” Bohn argued that county staff had preconceived ideas about what direction the general plan should take and ignored public comments that didn’t align with that direction. “It feels like a lot of people got
to go see the swimming hole but didn’t get to go swimming,” he said. Like Fennell, he indicated that Monday’s meeting fixed that. “That was as robust as it gets today,” he said. In a hurried 4-1 straw vote just before the dinner break — with Lovelace objecting — the board approved the new principles. It replaced a set of values forged through years of public process with one developed behind closed doors and made public less than four days earlier. Theoretically the board can revisit and revise the principles at a later date, but the majority showed no inclination to do so. How do the county’s new guiding principles differ from the old ones? They offer a less specific vision, largely eschewing the notion of planned development focused around existing services in favor of laissez faire growth. They put a stronger emphasis on property rights and rural development while deemphasizing environmental protections. Below you’ll find both versions of the principles, with some compare-and-contrast notes. As the supervisors continue their review of the general plan, Monday’s actions raise significant new questions. With a new compass in hand, will they change course even further? And as they look back over the years of work already completed, will they again decide to backtrack and land in new destinations? • Original principle: “Protect agriculture and timberland over the long term, using measures such as increased restrictions on resource land subdivisions and patent parcel development.” • New version: “Encourage, incentivize and support agriculture, timber and compatible uses on resource lands.” Gone are protections for agriculture and timberlands, replaced by incentives to produce on those lands. • Original principle: “Provide sufficient developable land, encourage development of affordable housing for all income levels, and prevent housing scarcity under
a range of population growth scenarios.” • New version: “Promote and facilitate the creation of new housing opportunities to mitigate the decline in availability of affordable housing for all income levels.” These two may seem similar, but the differences are meaningful. The original principle was geared toward maintaining an adequate housing inventory. The new version takes for granted a decline in affordable housing and calls on the county to actively “promote and facilitate” new opportunities. The general plan update is a planning document intended to last for 20 years or more, yet the new principle is based on a variable market assessment — one that may already be incorrect. According to the latest data from the Humboldt Economic Index, home sales have increased by more than 15 percent in the past year while affordability has returned to pre-housing bubble levels. • Original principle: “Ensure efficient use of water and sewer services and focus development in those areas and discourage low-density residential conversion of resource lands and open space.” • New version: “Cooperate with service providers in delivering efficient water and sewer services and infrastructure and support scientifically proven alternative waste management systems in areas not served by public sewer.” This change comes straight out of HumCPR newsletters. The new principle eliminates the goal of focusing development around existing services and instead opens up the county’s rural lands to development. • Original principle: “Protect natural resources, especially open space, water resources, water quality, scenic beauty, and salmonid habitat.” • New version: “Preserve landowners’ right to live in urban, suburban, rural or remote areas of the county while using a balanced approach to protect natural continued on next page

continued from previous page resources, especially open space, water resources and water quality in cooperation with state and federal agencies.” At the meeting the board directed staff to add “fisheries habitat” into the new principle. That version places landowner rights ahead of environmental protections, which are left to “a balanced approach.” It doesn’t specify whose definition of balance should be applied. Opinions in this county vary wildly about how best to resolve the opposing values. • Original principle: “Support the county’s economic development strategy and work to retain and create living-wage job opportunities.” • New version: “Support economic development and work to retain and create living-wage job opportunities.” The new principle deletes the county’s role in planning economic development. • Original principle: “Provide a clear statement of land use values and policies to provide clarity in the county’s permit processing system and simplify review of projects that are consistent with the general plan.” • New version: “Provide a clear statement of land use values and policies in the county’s permit processing system and simplify review of projects.” The new principle eliminates the requirement that projects be consistent
with the general plan, which raises the question: Why have a general plan at all? Two principles were changed only slightly. To the one that read, “Adhere to a practical strategy that can be implemented,” the supes added, “utilizing constructive cooperation and common sense.” The added terms are not defined. And they inserted the word “diverse” to create the following principle: “Preserve and enhance the diverse character of Humboldt County and the quality of life it offers.” The extra word seems unlikely to affect policy. Another principle — “Include actionable plans for infrastructure financing and construction” — was simply deleted. And three principles were left unchanged: • “Ensure that public policy is reflective of the needs of the citizenry as expressed by the citizens themselves.” • “Maximize the opportunities to educate the public about the planning process, in order to have meaningful participation in the development and maintenance of the plan.” • “Support a broad public participation program at all levels of the decision making process; including study, workshops, hearings, and plan revisions.”

You may remember the plight — or comeuppance, some would say — of Arthur (“Arty”) Pliny Jones, the convicted drug felon and Hoopa Valley Tribal member whom the tribe’s council last year voted to banish from the reservation. In fact — quick update — Jones’ banishment has not yet been enforced; he appealed the decision, and final arguments were made in a hearing before a three-judge tribal court panel last month, according to the Two Rivers Tribune. Now, said his daughter Leilani Pole by phone earlier today, they’re just waiting for the court to hand down its order. Meanwhile, according to another TRT report, tribal chairman Leonard (“Elrod”) Masten is pushing for more banishments — this time of all registered sex offenders living on the reservation who are not members of the tribe. Notes the TRT: “A recent search of Megan’s Law shows that zip code 95546 (Hoopa) has 17 registered offenders. At least three of whom are residents of the Weitchpec and Pecwan areas, which share the same zip code. Six of whom are not Hoopa tribal members. The remaining eight registered offenders are Hoopa tribal members.” Under Title 5 of the tribe’s tribal code, the council can exclude anyone from the reservation for a number of offenses, ranging from “repeated commission of a crime or breach of peace as defined by tribal, state or federal laws” to “unauthorized entry into tribal or individual land for any purpose,” to name a couple. Masten, who was voted in as chairman

in 2009, had promised in his campaign that he’d crack down on the unsavory elements in the Hoopa Valley. Now he seems to be ramping up that effort in the last days of his rule — later this month, in their general election, tribal members will vote for their new chairman, either Danielle Vigil-Masten or Ryan Jackson. ● ART / BY HOLLY HARVEY / SUNDAY, JUNE 2 AT 6:33 P.M.
‘Give it Over to the Fire’ Open Studios Strategies
The Superstars: See your favorite artists. Start with John Wesa in the north, hit Alan Sanborn in Arcata, finish up with Kathy O’Leary and the C Street galleries in Eureka. You love their work; rub elbows; they’re awesome. The geographic: focused and economic. Hit the hotspots. There are four artists in Arcata’s Stewart Building, four in Samoa, six around the C Street galleries. Stick to Ferndale and Fortuna and you’ll visit eight studios. Hop on your bike, save gas, feel
superior. This year’s strategy: Pick a medium, find the artists. For me on Saturday it was fire, specifically pottery. First stop: Mark Young and his talented wife Lorraine Lindley. Mark is a potter; Lorraine works with glass and mosaics. Their home and studio is a showcase of earthenware and iridescence. Shortly after we arrived, a curious studio-goer asked Mark about his kiln, “Is this where you fire your pots?” Mark began by describing how the fire gets into the kiln, its gas lines, the firebrick-and-space-shuttle-techfiberglass insulation and how the pots are stacked in his gas-fueled kiln. “Then you give it over to the fire. Sometimes you get surprised.” Second stop: Dave Zdrazil and Shannon Sullivan. Their home, workshop and wood-fired kiln overlook the Eureka Slough. Some of Shannon’s work is traditional shapes — cups, bowls, jars, vases — but much of it is mysterious organic shapes and cutaways that expose a secret interiors, evocative of sea urchins and geodes. Only two stops? If you’re at all interested in the process, you have to — need to — talk to the artists. Take your time and ask them about their work, their media, their processes. It will create a personal connection with the pieces you buy. You’ll forge connections, even friendships. There’s still time to visit the open studios next weekend, June 8 and 9. Pick up a copy of last week’s Journal for a map and guide, or visit www.northcoastopenstudios.com. ●

Richard Marks Appointed to NCRA Board
The tie-breaking vote fell to 5th District Supervisor Ryan Sundberg, much to his chagrin. At today’s meeting, all five county supervisors commended the two highquality candidates for the board of the North Coast Railroad Authority — Dan Hauser, a political veteran who served in the state Assembly, helped create the NCRA and spent two years as the agency’s executive director, and Richard Marks, a current Harbor District commissioner. After public comment and much hand-wringing, 4th District Supervisor Virginia Bass moved to appoint Marks, and 3rd District Supervisor Mark Lovelace seconded the motion. Second District Supervisor Estelle Fennell indicated her preference for Hauser, and 1st District Supervisor Rex Bohn agreed, leaving Sundberg in the hot seat. “I’m on the fence,” he said, more than once. Visibly uncomfortable, Sundberg looked left then right, mused a bit on his indecision and then finally said he’d support Marks. The motion to appoint Marks passed 3-2. ●

FIVe THINGS To knoW
Before You Launch Into Summer By Jennifer Savage
Summer on the coast means fog (freaky weather patterns notwithstanding). Out here at the ocean, the seasons go like this: rainy, windy, foggy, glorious. Right now we’re heading into “June gloom,” which means by July, those of us ensconced on the coast will be climbing the walls — or more likely into our cars to escape to Willow Creek or Miranda for some sunshine, heat and river action. Start off by following all the general good-time safety rules, whether you’re rivering or hiking, beaching, biking, etc. Know the area, bring enough food and water, let people know where you’re going and when to expect you back, and check the weather. 2. Nothing beats the river to wash your woes away. But! But, but, but — safety! The Trinity deceives people every year. Don’t get fooled into equating the peaceful view above the surface with what’s happening below. You can’t be too careful. Locals recommend opting for a mellower river until about August. Pick yourself up a copy of Elizabeth Whitley’s fourth edition of Guide to Natural Swimming Holes in the Eel River Valley and Mad River Wilderness and familiarize yourself. 3. If this is your first summer in Humboldt, know this: People like to get naked. My initial experience with this phenomenon occurred at Bull Creek Flats. We’d marveled at the creek bubbling through the old-growth, so pleased to offer our children this wonderful place to play. When another couple arrived with a kid, I struck up conversation with the mom over how cute the children were, what a lovely day it was, yadda yadda. She had set a folding chair smack dab in the middle of the river and started stripping down, chatting all the while. Yes, they are just so adorable splashing around, playing pirate, flinging rocks into the water. What a great day. We’re so lucky. At about this point, she settled herself into her chair completely starkers and completely at ease with being so. Intellectually, I loved the idea of nudity being natural. But I’d never hung out with someone in such a fashion — where I come from, the only

reason to be naked with another person is sex. That was 14 years ago. I’ve since grown accustomed to seeing nipples and pubic hair and penises flapping in the breeze. It’s no big deal! Be free! (Wear sunscreen.) 4. Oh, man — sunscreen. This is one of those issues where doing the right thing is not as simple as getting more exercise and being kind to people. You want to protect your skin from the sun, according to the people trying to help you not get skin cancer. If that’s not enough, then consider this: wrinkles. Also, the leather look? Not good. But most sunscreens come with all kinds of ick factors that make slathering them onto your body unappealing. And despite the widespread use of sunscreens, skin cancer rates keeps rising. Also, high SPFs are largely bullshit. (See the Environmental Working Group’s 2013 Guide to Sunscreens, http://www. ewg.org/2013sunscreen/, for a full look at the dos and don’ts.) So what’s a Vitamin D-hungry person to do? Besides research? Opt for the most natural, effective sunscreen — my esthetician recommends Badger. Wear a hat. Cover up every so often or move to the shade for a bit. (Do I need to point out that I am not a doctor?) Avoid burning. Prepare ahead of time so you’re not stressing about it when you’re there. Get someone that you trust to rub sunscreen into your back. If you’re the rubber, do a good job. Even if you’re mad that you had to do all the packing and sandwich-making and water-bottle lugging. Don’t do a half-assed job, because when your husband gets sunburnt down the middle where you didn’t bother continuing — with the shape of your handprints left white — well, you’re going to feel really bad. Trust me. 5. Put your cell phone into airplane mode so you can still use the camera, but you’re not draining your battery or, worse, suckered into texting/answering calls/ working/Facebooking. If you’re fortunate enough to be hanging out in some of the North Coast’s most soul-recharging areas, then really be there. BONUS: And hey, do take photos — and notes. Summers are worth remembering. l northcoastjournal.com • North Coast Journal • Thursday, June 6, 2013
‘FOUND: Dreadlock’ And other portals to the people and stories behind Humboldt County Craigslist By Ryan Burns
recent post on Humboldt County Craigslist captures a certain Arcata mentality so perfectly, it’s as if a whole subcommunity has been projected through a mystical necklace crystal and channeled into the cold binary world of the Internet. “FOUND: Dreadlock (Arcata Marsh),” reads the title. Click and you get the following story: “I was walking at the marsh and I found a dread with a feather attached out by Klopp pond. If you lost your dread and you think it is your[s] please text me ... . If you can identify hair color and type of feather that would help me get it to its rightful owner.” If the post is genuine (and oh how I hope it is), then what information can we glean? First, someone’s dreadlock fell off while at the Arcata Marsh. Not shocking given the town’s dread proliferation and the tensile strength of matted clumps of dead hair. More interesting is what it suggests about the person who posted the message, namely that this is someone who a) saw a matted clump of dead hair (with a feather in it) on the ground and decided to pick it up and take it home; b) is trying to return said clump to the person whose head it abandoned; and best of all c) is worried that someone else might try to claim a stranger’s hair clump for himself. Even if the post is phony (messages left at the number listed in the post were not returned), it’s still hilarious — maybe even brilliant. And what’s amazing about Humboldt Craigslist is that it’s littered with such gems. Tucked in among the couch ads, the pet listings, the tawdry booty calls and the semiliterate manifestos you’ll find little windows into the lives of people living here. There’s a legend about Ernest Hemingway (probably false but still worth repeating) that goes like this: While having lunch with some fellow authors, Hemingway wagered them $10 apiece that he could tell a
complete story in just six words. Skeptical, they took the bet, and Hemingway wrote the following words on a napkin: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Note that the six-word story is not only a poignant little window into tragedy; it’s in the form of a classified ad. Drama is inherent in any marketplace, anywhere you find people exchanging money, goods, services and ideas. And with Craigslist, the number and variety of transactions is virtually limitless. In the 18 years since its humble beginnings as an email list belonging to a San Francisco man named Craig Newmark, Craigslist has transformed from a simple classifieds website into a forprofit company with more than 700 local websites — including our own Humboldtspecific version — in 70 countries. People here in Humboldt County often turn to Craigslist when they want or need something, be it money, a job or an apartment; sex, companionship or drugs; a forum for venting, a new home for their cats or full-size, four-wheel-drive pickup truck for less than $5,000. In many different ways, Humboldt exposes itself on Craigslist. And there’s a lot to be gleaned from its clearinghouse of desires.
Kiss Tribute Band Seeks Members
(Eureka or surrounding area) I am a Gene Simmons impersonator in Eureka, and am trying to start a Kiss tribute band. Currently we need lead guitar, rhythm guitar, and drums. I play bass, and do vocals. Musicians must be willing to wear full Kiss costume/make-up, and be ready to give audiences an authentic Kiss show experience! Men and women welcome. Sobriety is a must. Personal information: I am transgender, and currently transitioning from male to female. If this is offen-

sive to you, you should probably find someone else to play music with. If you’d like to audition, or have any questions, please call me, Cheri ... . Cheri “Simmons” Lemos’ obsession with the band Kiss began when she was 12 or 13, about the same time when she realized that she’s female. Now 18 and a senior on independent study through Eureka High School, Lemos didn’t come out publicly as female until last year. She said that harassment and gender confusion made school miserable until this year, when she finally felt comfortable in her own skin. She’s even more comfortable onstage wearing the platform boots, spiked leather bodysuit and devil-mime face makeup of fire-breathing Kiss vocalist Gene Simmons. “What kinda led to Kiss was my grandma told me my tongue was just as long as Gene’s,” Lemos told the Journal. The Eureka native had been listening to bands like AC/DC, and her grandma noticed that she liked dressing up in elaborate costumes. So she suggested impersonating the theatrical 1970s rocker/bass guitar player known for spitting blood and wagging his long tongue. “She thought it would just be a hobby for me,” Cheri “Simmons” Lemos

Lemos recalled. “Well, it’s not a hobby. It’s a career.” So far she’s done her Gene Simmons act at Eureka High talent shows, atop a homecoming parade float, and at Eureka’s Arts Alive!, where she charges a dollar to get a photo taken with her. She even did her act at the Jambalaya in Arcata, but she’s had no luck assembling a backup band, and the opportunities for

solo gigs are few and far between. So she turned to Craigslist. “If you’re looking at the photograph [in the ad], that is me,” Lemos said proudly. “That’s my real tongue. I do the whole thing — full costume, full makeup, I breathe fire, I spit blood.” She has spent hours studying the costumes and watching old performances. She’s seen the band in concert twice, and when The Original Kiss Army cover band came to the Blue Lake Casino in 2011, Lemos was behind the stage watching every minute. She said she likes Kiss because, unlike other bands, it gives you your money’s worth by putting on a real show. Lemos, who will graduate next month, lives in Eureka with her dad, stepmom, younger brother and younger stepsister. Her dad, she said, wasn’t completely supportive of her being transgender until recently. At one point she gave him an ultimatum: “I threatened to kill myself,” she said. “I told him, ‘You can have a live daughter or a dead son.’” He came around. Lemos isn’t optimistic about building a career here in Humboldt County. She may eventually move back to the Bay Area, where she lived briefly. Or maybe somewhere else. “I’m trying to figure out where the biggest audience I could reach would be,” she said. For now, she’s using Craigslist to keep searching for her Paul Stanley, her Ace Frehley, her Peter Criss — and her audience.
is large; it contains multitudes. If you ever doubt this, browse the local Craigslist and marvel at the variety of human experience on display. Over here, in “missed connections,” is a man pining for romance: “I saw your beautiful wispy bangs for the first time in the roller rink,” he writes. And here’s a woman charmed by a butcher at Wildberries: “You sold me some awesome king salmon the other day. ... I really like your sideburns and dimples. Hope you see this! I’ll rock your world!”
Over in “rants and raves,” someone is hurting.

In the “barter” section, a more acute pain: broken tooth - $150 waiting for a root canal, can’t stand the throbbing, someone please have mercy. I’ve got $150 Elsewhere in “rants and raves” you’ll find diatribes peppered with casual racism and homophobia, gripes about local businesses, frustrated screeds from victims of petty crime and the occasional “buyer beware” emanating from the dark corners of the black market: “Hey guys,” reads a warning from a burned prostitution customer. “Watch out for this drug using bitch. She is a thief and will steal you blind! Stay clear of her and choose someone else, she’s not even a good fuck.” But before you write off the site as a dumping ground for sin and misery, keep looking. You may find the Eel River woman who’s offering duck or chicken eggs (or meat) in exchange for “fresh vegetables, spinach, bread or dark chocolate chip cookies (or dark chocolate anything).” Or you may find something bizarre and fascinating — a rodent owner looking for rats with mismatched eyes; a woman selling pairs of her used panties for $35 apiece and shipping them in sealed plastic bags; or perhaps, in the “creative services” section, you’ll stumble upon 1,300 words of the Cormac McCarthy novel On the Road, transcribed with a lot of typos, very continued on next page

PHOTOS FROM RECENT ADS ON CRAIGSLIST.
Craigslist is understandably
popular among people who are new to the area and looking to acquire a few things — a job, furniture, friends — and those looking to offload some items on their way out. Jim King recently moved from Shasta County, where he’d been a counselor for troubled teens, to Eureka, where his new wife was born and raised. The two were blending their families, and with three kids apiece that meant a Brady Bunch-sized clan to support, with only his wife’s office manager paychecks for income. Their plan, which they’d been working
on for a year and a half, was to start a consignment store selling designer clothing for women. But whenever they got ready to make a down payment on a storefront, some financial setback would pop up. First it was divorce-related legal fees. Then the

transmission went out on one of their cars; replacing it cost $3,000. They needed money, quickly. And so a few weeks ago, King put up an ad on Craigslist. “Only $20 to mow your lawn!” it said. And beneath the headline was a marketing masterstroke: a picture of him, his wife and their six kids, ranging in age from 3 to 15, gathered around a stump in a redwood forest. They’re all dressed in blue jeans and blue shirts, and they’re staring straight into
the camera as if hopefully waiting for a response to the ad. “I’m currently ‘between jobs’ and trying to feed my family,” the ad reads. King offers to mow, trim, weed-eat and clean sidewalk weeds. The ad has been working. “I’m getting such a good response that I’m thinking of scrapping the idea of a consignment store
and doing this instead,” King told the Journal recently. When we reached him, he’d just gotten off the phone with an older Fortuna woman who’s no longer able to do her own yard work. She told King that she wouldn’t have called if not for the picture of his family, which he’d been reluctant to include. But his wife insisted, saying the photo would prove he wasn’t someone unreliable just looking to score drug money. King said he knows that if he keeps doing yard work he’ll have to incorporate as a business and start paying taxes. But in the meantime he’s grateful for the work. “This has definitely been a blessing for our family, and it’s getting us by right now,” he said. Others search for less tangible, more
elusive things — someone to play pingpong with, or go abalone diving, or “take a walk through the multiverse” with experimental astrology. One man recently moved to McKinleyville to be with his long-distance girlfriend of five years. After
serving 8 ½ years in the Air Force, where he was an aircraft mechanic, the man (who hasn’t given his name) was medically discharged last November due to a chronic intestinal illness. Here in Humboldt, he’s been having trouble adjusting to life
without the structure and camaraderie of the military. One night when he couldn’t sleep, he reached out via Craigslist. “First time with this and I think it is a long shot but I figure, why not,” he wrote. continued on page 21

In his post he said he’d just finished his first semester of college and he was looking for a job and hoping to get back in shape after putting on a few pounds. But mostly he wanted to meet some fellow veterans, get together, maybe work out, tell some stories, grab a beer. In an email to the Journal, the man said he posted the ad because most people in Humboldt County and the rest of California “do not understand the bond developed while serving nor the loss of structure for those of us who got out.” For a lot of young people, college is the place where they find structure and form bonds. Genesis Gromlich graduated from HSU last month with a bachelor’s in political science, and before she could move back to her parents’ place in Ventura she desperately needed to unload some of her meager belongings. “It needs to GO! Offer me anything!” said the ad she posted last week. She included pictures of a TV stand, a cheap desk lamp, a couple piles of clothes, a yoga mat, a dehumidifier and a jar of plastic kitchen utensils. “I need money,” she wrote. “Very desperately. Otherwise I might not make it back home.” Gromlich was born in Puerto Rico and spent five years living in the Dominican Republic, but in a conversation with the Journal she said it was a culture shock simply moving from the south end of the state to Arcata. Partly it was the slower pace of life, the unreliable bus service and the relative lack of amenities and things to do, and partly it was the amount of rain during her first year here. The last couple of years have been drier, which has her worried about climate change. She’s looking forward to getting back to a more
urban area, but she said she appreciates this area for what it is. “Humboldt is a great place with Humboldt people,” she said. “Let’s hope it stays that way.”
If you’re looking
for a snapshot of the quasi-legal status of marijuana, that, too, can be found on Humboldt Craigslist, where the crop and its peripheral products are being bought and sold fairly openly, with just token nods to California’s medical cannabis laws. The best catch-all search term is “215,” the number of the 1996 proposition that legalized the drug for medicinal use. The numerical metaphor is like a tag that hangs from a wide variety of products — soils and fertilizers, bulbs and ballasts, scanners and turkey bags, pipes and vaporizers, plants and edibles, even real estate: A recent post advertises “215 property ... secluded, easy access ... virgin grow area.”
Marijuana is so prevalent on Craigslist that it’s frequently used as currency. In fact, it’s become so common that many people feel the need to specify that they don’t accept weed as payment. A 2001 Nissan Maxima, a ’98 Kawasaki Ninja, a Samsung Galaxy smartphone, a tent trailer, a two-karat gold wedding ring — all were for sale last week in separate ads, and each said something along the lines of “no 215 trades.” Others gladly accept our local variety of green currency. “Prop215 4 convertible mustang Gt,” reads an ad from April 30. The seller offers to trade his ’99 maroon drop-top for “4-5 nice lbs of top shelf outdoor.” And of course there’s a wide variety of strains of the plant itself: Purple Kush, Blueberry Headband, Green Crack and Girl Scout Cookies were among the recent offerings. Most of the recent ads were for starts in four- or five-inch pots. The Journal reached out to one seller of Blueberry Headband starts via email and he explained some of the perks of selling a quasi-legal product. “If a customer is an asshole, I can say that to them,” he said in a response email. “Nowhere in legal retail would it be fitting to text a customer, ‘Never mind, bro, been
waiting on you since 3:30 and I can’t do it anymore.’” You might even get offered an extra $50 to keep waiting, he added. “Don’t get me wrong,” the guy wrote. “Craigslist isn’t just for shady transactions discussed over open trunks in the southeast corner of the Target parking lot. It’s also a good way to make $45 dollars off of the left handed, mismatched set of golf clubs ... that you found in some downtown Eureka alley. ... You might also be offered a shot of inexpensive whiskey when you go to drop it off!” At the end of his email, the guy revealed that his little anecdote about waiting for a customer was not hypothetical. “Dude’s girlfriend just hit me up with the $ plus the extra $50,” he wrote. “Gotta go make some rent.”
Lots of things
can be found on Humboldt Craigslist. Want a pit bull? There’s tons of those. Been jonesing to trim some guinea pig toenails? A lady in Arcata can make that dream a reality. Maybe you want a big pile of single socks, some used tractor tires or a parrot named Richard. Or perhaps you’d like to cozy up to your computer and read some semicoherent manifestos about communism, chemtrails and fluoride, preferably typed in all caps. Regardless of what you’re looking for, if you spend enough time on Humboldt Craigslist you’ll develop a new appreciation for the vast, vibrant and bizarre array of people and stories to be found here. l

he concept of “infinity” has bothered and challenged philosophers for thousands of years, but the first really modern attempt at understanding it was made by the mathematician-astronomer-philosopher Galileo Galilei in his final book Two New Sciences (1638). The “Father of Modern Science” attributes our problems with infinity to the limitations of our brains, anticipating Emmanuel Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason. Zeno’s Paradox and all the other infinity-laden paradoxes arise when, in Galileo’s words, “we attempt, with our finite minds, to discuss the infinite, assigning to it those properties which we give to the finite ...” (Zeno of Elea, you may recall, had argued that in theory motion was impossible, since in order to traverse from A to B, you had to go halfway, which entailed going half of that distance, which entailed going half of that distance, ad infinitum. Since each step would take a finite length of time, you’d need an infinite amount of time to go anywhere.) If it’s true that the wise person solves the problem while the genius avoids it, the world must have been full of geniuses up until the 15th century. Aristotle, for instance, argued that infinity couldn’t even be discussed because of the paradoxes that arise. Thomas Aquinas followed Aristotle’s lead, as he usually did, saying that infinity is relegated to God (the original “uncaused Cause”) and infinity is impossible in “real” time and space. So Galileo’s forthright approach to the problem offered a fresh take on the subject. Note that none of the pre-Galilean noodling had stopped mathematicians from actually using infinity. In proving that a sphere occupies exactly two-thirds of the cylinder into which it just fits,
GeorG Cantor, the man who wrestled with infinity — and won. Photo from wikimedia Commons
Archimedes conceptualized an infinite number of infinitely thin disks (anticipating calculus by over 2,000 years). Similarly, in 1609, Johannes Kepler derived his Second Law of Planetary Motion (planets sweep out equal areas with respect to the sun in equal times) by summing an infinite number of infinitely small triangles. Turned out, Galileo and other mathematicians who followed him vastly underestimated infinity. Skipping many steps and missteps along the way, the RussianGerman number theorist and philosopher Georg Cantor (1845-1918) wrestled the whole notion to the ground by showing that more than one type of infinity was possible. Before Cantor, we had finite “sets” (e.g. the set of your fingers) and infinite sets (the set of integers 1,2,3 ... to infinity). Cantor proved that the set of rational numbers (those that can be designated by a fraction, such as 191/7919) could be matched up one-to-one with the set of integers: every integer then has a corresponding rational number and vice versa. These two sets are thus equivalent and are “countably infinite” (or, denumerable). He went on to show that “uncountably infinite” (nondenumerable) sets existed, such as the set of all possible (“real”) numbers between 0 and 1, which include both rational and irrational numbers. Having proved the existence of at least one “type” of infinity, Cantor went on to show that many infinities — in fact, an infinity of infinities! — existed. In this way, Cantor founded the science of set theory, without which modern mathematics wouldn’t exist. l Barry Evans (email@example.com) never got farther than Carl Sagan’s “billions and billions” when it came to understanding really big numbers.

Fever for All Ages Rock, innards-shuddering rock and Americana/funk By Jennifer Savage email@example.com
hile the music, arts and greater Humboldt community wait for the return of Bob Doran, the Hum’s true host, the NCJ has asked for a bit of help. To that end, here are some of the week’s shows most worth your effort and hard-earned cash.
Think of the children!
First off, let’s talk Fever Charm and 51 Cards playing Humboldt Brews on Sunday night. This might be the most important show you attend all year! Why, you ask? The youth! The youth have been suffering! They have so few places to see shows and even fewer opportunities to experience legit rock and roll by folks under the age of 30 — and the Fever Charm boys haven’t even broken 20 yet. Concerns are not unfounded that the musical tastes of adolescents today have been preemptively neutered by too much exposure to Death Cab for Cutie, the Shins and the Decemberists — makers of pretty music, sure, but lacking any semblance to the raw sexy youthfulness that defines rock and roll. Sure, they’ve also had the Strokes, Arctic Monkeys and Cage the Elephant, but those bands were increasingly anomalies in a world favoring introverts with laptops. Not that there’s anything wrong with introverts and laptops — but there’s something wrong when the under-21 crowd is denied the catharsis that poppy, ripping, garage rock so urgently provides. Who wants to listen to their parents’ rock and roll? That’s why this show is so impor-
tant. Not only will Fever Charm guys be there in all their teenage glory, but local youngster charm-rockers The 51 Cards (Jr. Perez, Rich Macey and John Grossheim) bring the party as the opening act — check out our website for a link to Bob’s profile of the boys in the July 12, 2012, Hum. The show is, necessarily, all-ages. Hopefully the under-21 crowd will come out for the music and also — because all-ages rock shows are so rare — to show that providing live music

beyond the bar crowd can be worth a venue’s while. Oldtimers will remember the Placebo’s long and valiant struggle to bring consistent all-ages shows to Arcata, Manila and Eureka. Eventually the founding members grew up and into day jobs, and while the nonprofit (sheltered under the Ink People’s umbrella) continues on (it has a Facebook page), the battle appears ever more uphill. Props to Humboldt Brews for booking the show. Cover is $10, and things get started at 7 p.m. Give Fever Dream’s West Coast Rock and Roll a listen via Bandcamp, then pop over to ReverbNation for a sampling of The 51 Cards.

matic to your gentle soul, fear not! The sweet cocoon that is Humboldt Brews’ music room transforms back into a safe place for more traditionally Humboldt fare next Wednesday, June 12, night with Jellybread. The Reno-based band plans to butter you up with some “full frontal funk” mixed with tasty Americana jams that result in a blend of “in-the-pocket drum and bass grooves, swampy lap steel guitar, dirt under the fingernails guitar licks and take-’em-tochurch organ that’s downright appetizing — bright colors and sweet, funky flavors.” Also, these men are sharp dressers! This one’ll be fun. And isn’t Wednesday date night?
Heads up — it’s the umpteenth Soul Night happening at Humboldt Brews on Friday, June 14. This gig sells out. Advance tickets are the only way to go. … Oyster
crushing, sludge trudging, diesel driven rock and roll.” The opening notes of “She Says,” the first track of its eponymous album, confirms the description is apt. The band is playing at the Alibi on Saturday night, also confirming that longtime booker Ian Hiler has lost neither his appreciation for stoner rock nor his ability to pick out the finer up-and-coming versions of that genre’s practitioners. Bison Bison’s drummer, Eric Johnson, served time in a Jesus Lizard cover band — that may be enough for some people to cancel their Sunday morning plans because they know it’ll be a late, late night at the ‘bi, but for those who need more details, imagine this: … You’ve had a few beers, maybe a whiskey or three, and are leaning on the wall next to one of the Alibi’s famed dog paintings. It’s been a long week. It’s late, sometime around midnight. You’ve just witnessed the rad rock of locals Indianola. The bar is dark, but your spirit is lifting. The Bison Bison trio takes over the corner of the Alibi that serves in place of a stage. They break into a riff so heavy your internal organs shudder. An onslaught of guitar fuzz wraps itself around you. Before you realize it, you’re hypnotized, lost in a groove that ranges between Kyuss and ancient Sabbath. Does this thought make you happy? Then you should go. It’s the Alibi, so 21 and over, and nothing musicwise gets going till after 11 p.m. Cover’s $5. Tip your bartenders.

We’re down here, mucking around on the planet. They – those migrating birds – are up there, looking down on our work, maybe thinking, “What the —?!” In TECHNIQUES FOR LANDING, an aerial dance theater production by the Synapsis Aerial Collective, aerialists examine this human-birdenvironment interplay by using silks, trapezes, a Spanish web and the ground to tell the story of a “society of birds searching for a mythical underground sky.” Shows are 8 p.m. Friday, June 7, and Saturday, June 8, at Synapsis Warehouse, 47 West Third St., between Commercial and A streets in Eureka. Get your tickets ($10-15, sliding scale) at Missing Link Records in Arcata and The Works in Eureka.

Ah, the dirty 30. That birthday when most of us roll over in bed and pull the pillow firmly down, smothering the air passages. Not so for environmentally progressive and long-lived Mattole Restoration Council. The last three decades have found the Southern Humboldt nonprofit out in the trenches, fighting the good fight for the local watershed and salmon alike. After all that, the people must party. And who could ask for a better reason to put on the ol’ fun pants than a nonprofit turning a healthy, strapping 30? The family day features a heaping helping of field games, photography contests, children’s writing contests and a silent auction, starting at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 8, at the Mattole Grange Hall. Then, (drum roll) the big guns come out by way of Absynth Quintet and Moonalice. The fracas-evoking five of Absynth will be blasting genre bouncing bionic-gypsy-circusindie-bluegrass shenanigans cultivated in the hills of Humboldt. The band sounds like a rope swing, a river and the first time you tried some of Gammy’s blackberry moonshine. And Gammy’s moonshine packs a punch. And then, Moonalice. If this band had any more star power it would be the largest cause of photosynthesis on the planet. The group’s first album, It’s 4:20 Somewhere, has been downloaded more than 3 million times. Yeah, million. I know. Both slangers of sass will be in the Mattole Grange Hall, 36512 Mattole Road in Petrolia, starting at 7 p.m. for a measly $20. You can also get in on the dinner at 5:30 p.m, for a ten-spot, kids $5. So go celebrate the restoration council’s 30th anniversary — the happy 30. For more information contact the Mattole Restoration Council at 629-3514. — Travis Turner

Flicks on the Farm These days a trip to the multiplex is a gamble; tickets and concessions are overpriced, blockbusters are overhyped and there’s no guarantee you won’t completely regret the expense of money and time. Long gone are the days of cramming all of your friends into your car for a cheap and adventurous night at the drive-in. The folks at Bayside Park Farm are as rooted in this nostalgic need for a quality theatrical experience as the rest of us. Spring at the farm isn’t just for tilling and sowing anymore; it’s also time for the third annual Flicks on the Farm season! You’ve doubtlessly seen the farm on your occasional (or frequent) drives down Old Arcata Road. Nestled between Buttermilk and Anderson lanes, it’s hard to miss. It’s a community sponsored farm, meaning the crops produced there are the result of the efforts of the community, volunteers and local farm shareholders who buy seasonal shares and get weekly deliveries of freshly harvested vegetables. It’s organic, sustainable, community focused farming — and these people project films onto the side of their greenhouse on Saturday evenings, for free! This family friendly evening kicks off at 8:30 p.m on Saturday, June 8, at 930 Old Arcata Road in Bayside. It’s an informal event, so you’re encouraged to bundle up, bring blankets or lawn chairs and maybe even pack yourself a little picnic dinner. The film this weekend is the seemingly quirky documentary Dirt! The Movie. A movie about dirt, you say? Hear me out. Dirt! Illuminates the history of our soil, from its cosmic creation to present day agricultural detriment, how the evolution of dirt led to civilizational booms and busts, and what needs to be done to save the fertile soil we have left. And, also, did I mention the showing is free?! If documentaries aren’t your style (or your children’s style), then perhaps the Saturday, June 15, screening of Disney’s Ratatouille is the show for you. Affordable, family friendly opportunities like this don’t crop up all the time, so be sure to take advantage of them while they’re ripe for the picking. For more information about Flicks on the Farm, call 822-7091. — Dev Richards

book Black Mountain College: Experiment in Art Vincent Katz, ed., MIT Press
That mid-20th century artistic innovations happened in New York, Paris and San Francisco is no surprise, but rural North Carolina? It’s all but forgotten now, but for 23 years many of those who defined American arts came to an isolated YMCA camp in the Blue Ridge Mountains to teach, learn, collaborate and create. Black Mountain College began in 1933 as an experiment in higher education, but the arts were always an important component and so was the idea of cross-fertilization. The first inspiration was the Bauhaus movement in Germany, which advocated arts and crafts on an equal footing. Among the first Black Mountain teachers were Bauhaus painter Josef Albers and his wife (and craftsperson) Anni Albers. The remarkable landscape of mountains and lake and the natural quiet drew artists from New York and elsewhere to teach — some periodically, some continuously for years. Some students in turn became prominent. There were the inevitable problems of a small hothouse campus, of strong convictions, egos and hormones. But there were also historic moments that seem unlikely to have happened anywhere else. For example, there was a rare production of a play by composer Erik Satie, directed by future filmmaker Arthur Penn, with music performed by John Cage, dancing by Merce Cunningham, sets painted by artist Willem de Kooning, and starring Buckminster Fuller, who took time off from teaching how to make geodesic domes to play the outrageous lead character. This generously illustrated volume emphasizes the visual arts, but the text and additional essays cover greater ground. These include an essay by poet Robert Creeley about working with visionary poet Charles Olson — two highly influential literary figures in the 1960s and beyond. Though most of the big names associated with Black Mountain are male (including artists Robert Rauchenberg and Robert Motherwell, composers Lou Harrison and Roger Sessions, and poet Robert Duncan), many women and lesser-known men were just as important there, and are well represented in the text and illustrated artworks. Since these legendary figures defined American arts and established American artists as world leaders, the Black Mountain College story is historically important. The setting — so different from the usual urbandominated history — is itself fascinating. Within this narrative, there is the equally important sense of Black Mountain College as an experiment in education that was influential for decades, though the idea of experimental colleges seems sadly to have nearly died out. With an emphasis on teaching process, Black Mountain College was (in the words of one teacher) a place where people were more interested in what they didn’t know than in what they did. These two aspects — creativity and educational experiment — are linked, and this volume is a solid beginning in exploring those links. — William Kowinski
Hey Look, It’s Us! Humboldt hits the movies as home to Will Smith, Bigfoot and sharks By John J. Bennett and Ryan Burns firstname.lastname@example.org
AFTER EARTH. Friends who attended last Thursday’s premiere warned me that this might be the worst movie of the year. I didn’t find it quite that bad — not really any damn good, either, but certainly not the worst. Having missed last week’s gala event at the Broadway Cinema, I was able to meet Will Smith’s misbegotten brainchild on more neutral terms. Apparently Smith’s intent here was to make son Jaden a bona fide action star in one fell swoop. The gambit fails. M. Night Shyamalan co-writes and directs (from Smith’s concept) a story as old as stories. At bottom it’s about fathers and sons, mastering fear and confronting the past. But there’s a load of space nonsense tacked on. A thousand years after poisoning Earth’s atmosphere and bugging out to some otherworld, humanity finds itself beset by aliens (from where, we never find out; not important, apparently). Said aliens wage war with trained space bears that sense fear. (That’s my interpretation; they don’t look like bears but are called Ursas.) General Cypher Raige (Will Smith) rises through the ranks of the Space Rangers largely due to his ability to “ghost,” or render himself invisible to the bad beasties by confronting them without fear.
MovieTimes There’s a lot I didn’t particularly like about Willow Creek. Found footage is defined by its inherent limitations. And even though Goldthwait keeps edits to a minimum while bringing a distinctive sensibility, this still looks like a found-footage movie. Which means it looks like every other foundfootage movie ever made. The build-up to the climax is slow and largely uneventful, and That’s a funny-lookin’ Ewok.

However, because June 30, 2013 is on a Sunday, and in accordance with State law, amounts due may be paid through the close of business on July 1, 2013. That unless the property is completely redeemed through payment of all unpaid amounts, together with penalties and fees prescribed by law or an installment plan is initiated and maintained; the property will become tax-defaulted and may be subsequently sold at a tax sale in satisfaction of the tax lien.

John Bartholomew Humboldt County Tax Collector
Executed at Eureka, Humboldt County, California, on May 23rd, 2013. Published in the North Coast Journal on May 30th, June 6th, and June 13th , 2013. NOTICE OF IMPENDING POWER TO SELL TAX-DEFAULTED PROPERTY Revenue and Taxation Code Section 3362 Pursuant to Revenue and Taxation Codes sections 3691 and 3692.4, the following conditions will, by operation of law, subject real property to the tax collector’s power to sell. 1) All property for which property taxes and assessments have been in default for five or more years. 2) All property that has a nuisance abatement lien recorded against it and for which property taxes and assessments have been in default for three or more years. 3) Any property that has been identified and requested for purchase by a city, county, city and county, or nonprofit organization to serve the public benefit by providing housing or services directly related to low-income persons and for which property taxes and assessments have been in default for three or more years. The parcels listed herein meet one or more of the criteria listed above and thus, will become subject to the tax collector’s power to sell on July 1, 2013, at 12:01 a.m., by operation of law. The tax collector’s power to sell will arise unless the property is either redeemed or made subject to an installment plan of redemption initiated as provided by law prior to close of business on the last business day in June. The right to an installment plan terminates on the last business day in June, and after that date the entire balance due must be paid in full to prevent sale of the property at public auction. The right of redemption survives the property becoming subject to the power to sell, but it terminates at close of business on the last business day prior to the date of the sale by the tax collector. All information concerning redemption or the initiation of an installment plan of redemption will be furnished, upon request by John Bartholomew, Humboldt County Tax Collector, 825 5th Street, Room 125, Eureka, CA 95501, (707)476-2450. The amount to redeem, including all penalties and fees, as of June 2013, is shown opposite the assessment/parcel number and next to the name of the assessee. PARCEL NUMBERING SYSTEM EXPLANATION The Assessor’s Parcel/Assessment Number (APN/ASMT), when used to describe property in this list, refers to the assessor’s map book, the map page, the block on the map, if applicable, and the individual parcel on the map page or in the block. The assessor’s maps and further explanation of the parcel numbering system are available in the assessor’s office.
