About That Supes “Coup” Editor: “Leadership Seriously Lacking” could well read “Humility Seriously Lacking” re the county Board of Supervisors’ decision to betray and traduce the General Plan Update (“Publisher,” June 13). The wisdom of Thomas Paine is apposite again, these 2 ½ centuries later: The secrets of governments, like the secrets of men, are always their defects. As for the public: The duty of a patriot is to protect his country (his county) from its government. Presumably, the board cannot be impeached for its arrogance and fouling of the public trust. One hopes the local
press will exercise its stewardship of that same public trust and henceforth brand the Judas in our midst the “Humboldt County Board of Co-Conspirators.” Paul Mann, McKinleyville Editor: Our family has lived in this area since early 1998. We’ve read the NCJ throughout our time here and have appreciated its efforts to bring accurate information to the local community and beyond. Had your article not been written, we would not have learned of the context of the ramrod, sudden change at the recent county Board of Supervisors’ meeting. Thank you for your work, for NCJ’s existence. Please continue to shine light on areas vital to democracy and freedom. Pat Hecht, Arcata
The disappearing begins at birth. Some replace themselves with a ferocity, attach their small bodies to long, greedy throats. Girl-children. Determined to survive, determined to shut down the heresy of self. Others fail to reconcile. They burst through the narratives of their families like wild things. Throwing themselves at the borders. Starving dogs, ribs like daggers lascivious mouths kept moist by a steady diet of profanity. The flickering of pink and red. — Catherine Munsee

Editor: News flash. Humboldt County Board of Supervisors has had a coup. During the ongoing cold war negotiations over the general plan, the publicly elected board was overthrown by Supervisor Fennell, now referred to as The Dear Leader. Supported by the Minister of Disinformation Bass, and co-Ministers of Sloth and Ineptitude Bohn and Sundberg. Until further notice, the public is advised to remain calm and keep their ears shut and their minds closed. This is all for now. Jeff Landen, Arcata Editor: In response to Judy Hodgson’s poignant description in “Leadership Seriously Lacking” and Sylvia De Rooy’s letter both describing the breathtaking four-day coup by the “gang of four,” there are a number of possible responses. There’s little need to go into most of them. I would suggest that perhaps one response would be to take a page from the folks whose persistence resulted in a near-complete takeover of both the Eureka City Council and the county

Editor: The general plan has been bogging along for how many years? I have attended public input meetings, and felt that little of the “public input” was being listened to. So this high-handed move by the new board of supervisors is, to me, very welcome. The problem with this county is, in the fear that we will become Santa Rosa, we discourage real job creation, and industry. My kids can’t find decent jobs and have left. The supes’ new language talks about encouraging the use our natural resources. This, I believe, is aimed at the many land owners who have great plans, and, so doing, will make our community a better place. I attended meetings of HumCPR. Most of the people were spitting nails about being stymied in the use of their land by county and state rules. CPR wasn’t much of a community organizer, but they were the only banner head for the dissatisfied. We need to learn how to make distinctions between encouraging our citizens, and curbing large corporations. Charles Hurwitz waltzed into Humboldt County and had his way. The major building show in town is Danco and their governmentsubsidized “affordable housing.” But try to build your own house and get it through the planning department — see the cost double, the time double, and your frustration level go through the roof. We must recognize this cost to our community, the great ideas that have been squashed, the time, money, and heartache that so many people experience trying to deal with the county. I bet a lot of people are really hoping that the new supes will succeed in freeing things up for the ordinary person, and that it will not be co-opted by the Big Boys. Let’s give the new crew our support. Jessica Bittner, Bayside
Board of Supervisors. With a vision, patience, hard work and money they managed to gain control of these entities and what is manifesting now is the result. If the character of this county is really threatened, then it’s time to think strategically and get moving. The relatively small group that pulled off this coup has nothing that the rest of us don’t have. True, they may have more money, but we have something even more important that they didn’t have … numbers. Perhaps it will all come down to who wants what most. Lois Beachy, Eureka

Thanks, Ken Editor: Thanks for the recent, inspiring “Art Beat” pieces (May 30, June 13) by Ken Weiderman focusing on local artists. Few of us really know how to view art. Mr. Weiderman’s concise interviews educate the reader with passion and sensitivity. His sumptuous sentences describe the artists’ intent, use of form and color and show us how to look closer. Pamela Miller, Arcata
More Beer, More Problems Editor: At this year’s Oyster Festival in Arcata, the plaza was fenced off and a $10 admission was charged (“Oysters, Beer and Cash,” June 6). Arcata Main Street stated the main reason for the admission charge was to pay for additional festival security. The large attendance and with beer sales expected to top last year’s all-time high, public safety will be a concern. In past festivals, beer sales have been the biggest money maker. Since the beginning, Eureka’s Old Town Fourth of July celebration had the sale of alcohol, but then it began to cause problems, so it is no
longer allowed. The problems lessens and attendance has not suffered. Arcata Main Street has to make a decision. Either continue to sell beer at the fest, thus increasing security costs, or discontinue the sale of beer and remove the fence and have admission to the event continue to be free. Scott R. Baker, McKinleyville
Correction Last week’s “From the Publisher” column contained some factual errors. Rex Bohn was elected to the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors in June, and the board, rather than any one supervisor, voted to appoint Lee Ulansey to the county Planning Commission. Also, former supervisor Erv Renner smoked a pipe, not a cigar.

KEET at the Crossroads With a big federal grant at risk, a public television station weighs its options By J. Daniel Fernandez firstname.lastname@example.org
n the outskirts of southern Eureka sits a faded, light-blue building, which — except for the looming broadcast tower and small parking lot — looks like a slightly larger version of the homes that surround it. From here on Humboldt Hill, KEET-TV beams some of our favorite shows to Humboldt County and beyond: Downton Abbey, Antiques Road Show, Sesame Street. Earlier this month, as bursts of cheers and a clanging cow bell erupted inside the station, volunteers were helping it fight for survival. They had gathered to auction off gift certificates, chocolates and even a Les Paul guitar to raise funds for the local Public Broadcast Service (PBS) affiliate. But while the spring auction happens every year, this one has an especially difficult edge. Looming over the heads of KEET’s 13 employees and numerous volunteers is the prospect of losing a federal grant worth $540,000, one-third of the station’s $1.6 million operating budget. The 2013 fiscal year for KEET ends this month, and with the start of the 2014 fiscal year beginning on July 1, the station still does not have a final budget in place. Nor will it know its fate until mid-
September, when the board of directors of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting — the entity charged with distributing public television funds allocated by Congress — meets again to make a decision on that $540,000 grant. Without the grant, KEET would have to cut from several pools including employee health benefits and funding for local productions like Original Patriots, a documentary about local Native American veterans who served in World War II. Even the right to broadcast PBS programing is potentially on the chopping block. However, KEET will not make a comment about specific plans until after the public broadcasting corporation board meets. At issue is whether KEET can remain viable over the long term. Last October, the corporation sent KEET a letter telling the station that it could lose the $540,000 Television Community Service Grant because it wasn’t raising enough non-federal money to qualify. In order for a public broadcast station to qualify for that grant, it must raise an average of at least $800,000 annually in non-federal financial support over three consecutive years. That non-federal support can come from a wide range of

sources: memberships, underwriting from businesses and individuals, auctions and other fundraisers, state or local grants, donations, bequests and special gifts like stocks or cash. KEET has never raised $800,000 in its 44 years of broadcasting, according to its Executive Director, Ron Schoenherr. Documents provided by KEET show that from all those sources, from 2009 to 2011, KEET raised less than $600,000 annually.

$13,000. That was the first time it has failed to do so since its start in 1964, said KIXE station director Mike Lampella. In the past, KEET could bypass the minimum requirement by applying for a waiver based on its rural location and limited resources, but that changed in 2010. As Erstling explained in a follow up email to the Journal, the corporation board made the change based on recommendations from a panel of consultants. “The panel recommended that a weak station barely surviving was ultimately not good for the system, and that CPB should intervene to help stations in this situation consider their options, including, but not limited to, collaborations.” Collaboration can come in the form of producing a

term sustainability. Federal grants were never intended to be a major source of funding,” he said in a telephone interview. “Our interest is not exactly in preserving the current station. It’s to get PBS to the public.” In its letter last fall, the corporation gave KEET until June 30 to show that, “it has significantly improved its long-term financial sustainability through a merger, consolidation, or collaboration.” Schoenherr has ruled out the possibility of a merger or consolidation, saying that he has focused instead on collaboration. KEET approached stations in Sacramento and San Francisco about collaborating, but they declined due to distance and financial concerns. KEET eventually found a partner in KIXE, the public broadcasting affiliate in Redding. In April, KEET’s board of directors passed a resolution to collaborate with KIXE and in turn, KIXE’s board approved the collaboration by passing its own resolution in May. The move “may save both of us,” Shoenherr said. That’s because KIXE is currently going through its own fight to get approval for federal funding. KIXE fell short of the $800,000 minimum by

Katherine Almy documentary together or by eliminating redundant departments such as payroll and fundraising. The goal is to show proof of financial stability in order to qualify for federal funding. However, Erstling acknowledged that collaboration will not help stations reach the $800,000 goal. Each station must raise that much on its own. Still, Erstling wrote in his email, “The right collaboration can yield not only savings to a station’s operations by aggregating costs, but also by consolidating best practices in fundraising and other functional areas that smaller markets sometimes find more difficult to attract and retain.” Schoenherr is among the public television advocates who have called, without success, for the minimum requirement to be lowered for smaller rural stations. “How many Fortune 500 companies are in Humboldt?” Schoenherr asked. “Those large markets can raise what they need in a few days.” According to Schoenherr, Humboldt County residents already contribute about $6 per capita, more than six times the national average of 90 cents. Culturally, the loss of funding to KEET would be a blow to all of Humboldt County, says Ross Rowley, who makes
his living producing commercials here, but values the independence that public broadcasting gets from not having to rely on commercial sponsors. Rowley has volunteered at KEET-TV for 34 years and was helping out at the recent auction. “When KEET produces a program about local Native veterans who served in World War II, or about the meth problems in Humboldt, the community gets an identity,” he said. “It’s a reflection of the community that you don’t get from a station outside of the area.” Another auction volunteer, The Emerald magazine founder Christina De Giovanni, says KEET’s community spirit really shows in programs like its HomeWork Hotline show, from 4:30 to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. “Kids who didn’t get enough help in class can get it during the show,” she said. “That’s a really good service.” But in the end, it comes down to economics. As Erstling wrote, “The economics of public television stations are rapidly changing, and the operating models that worked for the past 40 and 50 years don’t necessarily sustain a station’s financial viability.” l

POSTED BY RYAN BURNS / TUESDAY, JUNE 18 AT 3:12 P.M.
Rogue Dune Experiment
Yesterday afternoon, a small group of people, two horses and a dog hiked along the sandy path from the Manila Community Center across the rolling dunes to the ocean. When they reached the front line of dunes, where vegetation peters out and the beach slopes down to the coastline, two men began shoving and hammering wooden slats into the sand. Before long they had several dozen of the shims standing upright in the valley between two dunes. The planks looked like tiny frontier grave crucifixes waiting for their crossbeams. Before they left, they shoved more planks into the sand of an adjacent valley. The group was attempting a bit of guerrilla dune restoration, using an unauthorized “bio-mimicry” technique they’d learned about online. The slats, the men explained, are supposed to mimic dune vegetation by catching wind-blown sand and allowing it to accumulate at their bases. Periodically, as the sand level rises, the slats must be lifted up a few inches. Before too long (a year or two, maybe) you’ve got a rebuilt dune. That’s the plan, anyway. But it’s not the official plan. The management and restoration plan for these particular dunes belongs to the Manila Community Services District. Yesterday’s renegade beach engineers think the district has been doing it all wrong, and so they set out — without a coastal development permit — to try a new approach. Here’s the briefest of backgrounds: The men, including Uri Driscoll, Bill Weigle, Dennis Mayo and Ray Reel, are avid horsemen and trail-access advocates who for
10 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, JUNE 20, 2013 • northcoastjournal.com
years now have been at odds with various dune management/restoration agencies. (For more detail see Heidi Walters’ cover story from April 2011.) They argue that the 30-year, multi-agency campaign to remove European beach grass (Ammophila arenaria) is a fool’s errand that’s only serving to destabilize the dunes — wiping out their favorite horse trails in the process. They hope that their experiment, which they planned to announce today before the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors, will reopen a debate on best practices — a debate, in their opinion, that they and their ilk have been systematically left out of. Reached earlier today for comment on these unsanctioned activities, Friends of the Dunes Executive Director Carol Vander Meer said that the biology and ecology of our local dune ecosystem is unique — different than the Oregon coast and very different than Cape Cod, where the wood-slat approach is currently being used. “I would use extreme caution thinking we can apply techniques from other areas,” Vander Meer said. As she stated in her May 21 “My Word” piece for the Times-Standard, Vander Meer said that dunes are naturally mobile and dynamic, so she’d be curious to see the experiment sites, which the experimenters described as “blow-outs.” She added that her organization and others in the Humboldt Dunes Cooperative work with scientists and other experts, and while she’s skeptical about the wood-slat technique, she won’t rule it out. ”I think we’re always open to new knowledge, facts and information.” The manager of the Manila Community Services District was not available for comment. ●

County CAO is Job Hunting
County supervisors have had a lot of disagreements over the past three and a half years, but there seems to be consensus on at least one subject: Phillip SmithHanes is damn good at his job. So it will likely be a disappointment to learn that the county’s chief administrative officer since December 2009 is one of five finalists for the job of Coconino County manager, according to the Arizona Daily Sun. In case your knowledge of Arizona County names is as bad as ours, Coconino County encompasses the state’s northcentral region, including the cities of Flagstaff and Sedona. ● FRIVOLITY / BY GRANT SCOTTGOFORTH / SUNDAY, JUNE 16 AT 11:28 A.M.
Oyster Fest no Bust
trance fee will give them a more accurate count than ever before. Arcata Police Chief Tom Chapman estimated the crowd at 11,000 to 13,000, slimmer than the 16,000 to 18,000 estimated oyster-eaters in the last several years. “I felt like the crowd size was appropriate for the space this year,” he said. In addition to hiring security to watch the perimeters of the fence, Arcata Main Street paid for three APD officers, to the tune of just over $1,500, to patrol during the festival. APD arrested seven people Saturday — three during festival hours and four afterward. All were booked for public intoxication, which totaled around half of the day’s arrests on previous years. And notably, Chapman said, there were no arrests for fighting, another sign of this year’s relative tranquility. By 3 p.m. Oyster Fest was looking a bit more familiar. The sun peaked out from the clouds a few times. The beer and oyster lines reappeared. Kids danced. Adults bounced raucously to Lyrics Born. A few stumbled back to their blankets, beer and oyster trays in hand.
By noon, Oyster Fest looked positively placid. Not empty, by any means, but no ● beer lines (!), and more elbow room than a typical Saturday morning farmers market. By all accounts the morning was quieter than years prior. A local security guard named Annie manned the entrance to Willow and Libation, one of several walkthroughs open to the outside of the plaza. There was some speculation this week about the trickiness of keeping the plaza’s entrances fenced off. Annie said the crowds were tame, especially compared to last year.

Festival.” This year’s judges tried eight raw and nine cooked offerings, as well as a handful of non-oyster goodies. Glamorous servers glided around the long table like ring girls at a fight, passing out dishes of bivalves topped with everything from bacon and garlic to tobiko and mandarin slices. A platter of oysters with saffron bisque piled atop a whole lobster elicited oohs and ahhs from the crowd, followed by furious scribbling on ballots. The ballots bore descriptions of the dishes, but no information on the entrants. The oyster ice cream cones were deemed gutsy, but iffy. A few folks were happy enough with their cones until they hit an oyster chunk, while others felt vanilla was not the way to go. The ice cream itself was just slightly briny, like you’d dropped it on the beach. Still, it was a pleasant surprise for some, and memorable for all. A month shy of his 13th birthday, Michael Berkowitz was the youngest judge at the table. No one contested his authority because he has been eating oysters “since birth,” a fact corroborated by his mother beside him. Michael did balk momentarily when the non-oyster entries began with a “Rocky Mountain Oyster,” fried calf testicles. In the end, he cowboy-ed up and made his mama proud. The non-oyster category was a bit of a hodge-podge, with a yellow curry coming hard on the heels of an apple fritter. Tomo snagged Best Raw Oyster with its hot and sour shooter, which was terrifically plump and creamy with a tart sauce. The big winner for the cooked category was Toni’s. Who knew? The purveyors of cream pies and Thai truck food won the judges over with their grilled oyster in a bright dressing of sweet chili, fish sauce and cilantro. Best in Show went to Sushi Spot for their wasabi vinaigrette shooter, BBQ oyster with island curry and their non-oyster sushi roll. ●

Klamath tribes fought for decades to determine their rights to Klamath River water were the oldest, and won earlier this year. They were joined in calling for increased flows by the Bureau of Reclamation, which runs a federal irrigation project, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, as the AP’s Klamath guy Jeff Barnard has reported. The tense political climate is not unfamiliar. Tribes were granted higher river flows in 2001, despite protest from irrigators in the upper basin. The next year, the roles reversed. The lowered flow in 2002, combined with a large run of salmon, led to the death of 33,000 fish. It was one of the biggest fish kills (or fish die-off, as the Bureau of Reclamation prefers to call it) the U.S. had ever seen. This year is looking tough as well. It’s already shaping up to be a dry summer — the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration shows dry to drought conditions in Southern Oregon and Northern California already. Fishermen and biologists are predicting high numbers of salmon. And ranchers, now cut off from their usual supply, say there will be serious water shortages in the next few months. Some people fear the shutoffs could spark violence. State watermasters — who are tasked with asking ranchers to turn off their water, or turning it off themselves — are traveling in pairs and notifying the sheriff’s office wherever they go, Barnard reports. ● MEDIA / BY CARRIE PEYTON DAHLBERG / FRIDAY, JUNE 14 AT 3:16 P.M.

Assembly Candidate Petitions Supes
Hezekiah Allen, an Arcata resident who recently announced his run for the 2nd District seat in the state Assembly, has launched a change.org petition urging the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors to reconsider actions it took on June 3 — namely, swapping out a long-established and publicly vetted set of guiding principles in the county’s general plan update for a brand new set developed behind closed doors and released by Supervisor Estelle Fennell less than four days earlier. Allen was among those who spoke at the June 3 meeting. He thanked Fennell and fellow Supervisor Rex Bohn for the new list of principles, saying that they “honor diversity.” But he added that, “We need to take a little more time to balance between these two lists. ... I don’t appreciate the winner-take-all political culture.” In his online petition, which by late Thursday morning had acquired nearly 300 signatures, Allen says, “insufficient time was available for public review and comment on such a significant change in language.” Allen’s politics are somewhat difficult to pin down. A registered Democrat and executive director of the Mattole Restoration Council, an environmental nonprofit dedicated to watershed restoration, Allen also serves on the advisory board of the Humboldt Coalition for Property Rights, the hands-off-my-land corporation that has infiltrated county politics over the past year. Allen sent the Journal an email elaborating on his political views, which can be viewed on the Journal’s website. ● BY HEIDI WALTERS / WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12 AT 3:07 P.M.
Scary Snake Story
Last Saturday afternoon, up at her uncle’s place in Kneeland, 8-year-old Marley Bones (pronounced “Bo-NEZ”) was engaged in a favorite pastime — trying to catch small wriggling wildlife — when something caught her. It was brief — a quick, sharp fang-jab on the knuckle of her right pointing finger. “Marley’s just an adventurer,” said her mom, Colleen Bones, earlier today by phone. “She was lifting up all these rocks where all the lizards hide, and she was
reaching for a blue-belly lizard when a snake she didn’t know was there bit her.” It turned out to be a baby rattlesnake. They rushed her St. Joseph Hospital where she was treated with anti-venom. Then the ordeal really began. “All of a sudden her body came into a red rash, and she was having a hard time breathing,” Colleen Bones said. “It was just so awful and it got so intense so fast. They realized she was allergic to the antivenom.” Her bit hand started swelling up and her finger turned white. Colleen Bones said Marley was given something to counter the reaction. The hospital decided to fly her to U.C. Davis Children’s Hospital. The swelling from the venom continued to move up Marley’s arm, so late that night the U.C. Davis doctors gave her another dose of the same anti-venom. Her body reacted badly again — white rash, and breathing trouble. “But this time they were ready for it,” Colleen Bones said. They gave her something to counter the reaction, and waited. Eventually, both reactions — to the bite and to the cure for the bite — subsided. On Tuesday, Marley got to come home to Humboldt, where she’s recovering just fine with a giant blister on her finger and bruising spreading from her arm to her torso. Colleen Bones said the doctors at Davis told her that her daughter’s reaction to the anti-venom was rare and severe. It’s also rare to be bit by a rattlesnake in Humboldt County. Dave Lancaster, a wildlife biologist with the state Fish and Wildlife Department’s northern region Eureka field office, said this is the first time in his nine years here that he’s heard of someone being bit. “Rattlesnakes aren’t very common in the redwood belt where most of the population is,” Lancaster said. “But they can be quite common in parts of eastern and southern Humboldt, where it’s drier and warmer in the summer and there’s more open habitat. The closest to the coast you’d expect to start seeing them would be up along Kneeland, and down on the Mattole.” Colleen Bones said her daughter has not been scared off of adventuring. “I can’t say I’ve ever seen rattlesnakes around here,” she said. “I don’t think Marley has either. She said if she had seen the snake, she would have tried to grab it. She’s so used to catching garter snakes. Now she knows better. We’ve been doing our research, looking at pictures of them. Now she’s a snake expert. She says she’ll

be more aware.” Marley’s mom laughed and added, “She also says she’s happy that she saved the lizard’s life.” The Boneses also learned what not to do if someone’s bit by a rattlesnake: “My husband had actually tried to suck out the venom when Marley got bit,” she said. “[The doctors told us] you should never do that, because the human mouth is so dirty and you could cause a bad infection. And the venom quickly penetrates the skin and bloodstream, so there’s no way you can suck it out, anyway.” ● COURTS / BY RYAN BURNS / WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12 AT 2:42 P.M.
Ready for Prop 8 Ruling
The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to issue its ruling on California’s Proposition 8 any day now, and a group of locals — anticipating an overturn of California’s 2008 voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage — is planning to party. Eureka resident Susan McGee, a member of the Humboldt Equality Coalition, said that people will gather on the Arcata Plaza and in front of the Humboldt County Courthouse in Eureka at 6 p.m. on whichever day the ruling is announced. “We’re gonna ask people to come on out, sing, dance, scream, shout, cry, wave our rainbow flag — whatever,” she said. McGee and her partner of 20 years, Dr. Karen March, were among the roughly 18,000 California couples that got married during the brief window in 2008 when it was legal. Now they’re hoping to see that right extended to others. Most experts and SCOTUS nerds are predicting that the court will overturn Proposition 8, with Justice Anthony Kennedy likely to represent the swing vote. But what if the ruling goes the other way? “Then we’ll protest,” McGee said. She added that when she and March held a commitment ceremony 20 years ago, they would have laughed (ruefully, no doubt) at the suggestion that same-sex marriage would someday be legal. But thanks to activists and organizers such as Harvey Milk and Martina Navratilova, she said, public opinion has shifted — first slowly and, lately, much more rapidly. The latest polls show that nearly six in 10 California voters now support same-sex marriage. “It’s a humbling and wonderful thing to see,” McGee said. ●

The Cost of Getting Clean As the state and county decrease their support, a detox center keeps cutting back
Story and photos by Emily Hamann
t is around 8:30 in the morning in Eureka. Inside a white Victorian, soft morning light shines through a stained glass window onto the landing of the staircase. Stillness radiates from the walls the way it does when a house is full of people sleeping. In the wood-paneled living room, a motivational tape plays on the VCR. Ginger Fulcher wanders out of one of the first-floor bedrooms, wearing pajamas and a small smile. She looks like she has just woken up from her first full night of sleep in a long time. “This place,” she says, “is one of the only reasons I’m clean and sober and alive today.” This is a detoxification center, where people with drug addictions go to stay for a few days while the drugs clear out of their system. This one, on the corner of 14th and C streets in Eureka, is the only resource like it on the North Coast, and it’s in trouble.
is a place for drug addicts and alcoholics to wait to sober up. It is a starting point for people looking to get treatment for their addictions. Detox allows people to escape living with a drug user, living on the streets or staying in other circumstances that can get in the way of getting sober. David Peters is the director of external affairs at the California Association of Addiction Recovery Resources. He said detox is an important part of the healing process. “It provides a safe way for people to get all this poison out of their system,” he said. “In order to quit, you can’t just stop.” Withdrawals from certain drugs can be rough, and sometimes even fatal. “Alcohol particularly — it is very, very dangerous to detox off of alcohol,”

Peters said. Alcohol withdrawal can cause anxiety, confusion and seizures, and although not everyone gets ill, people who are older or suffering from other health problems are especially vulnerable. So it’s important that addicts have a place they can go to detox safely under trained supervision. Getting sober, especially for chronic and longtime drug users, is not a comfortable process, according to Eric Davis, the manager of Eureka’s detox center. Users of alcohol, heroin and prescription drugs sometimes need a medical clearance from the hospital before detox can accept them. The hospital writes them prescriptions for medicines that can help them come down off the drugs safely. Then they go the detox center. The minimum stay is three days. Davis said that most of the time, the alcoholics just want to sleep. It can be tough to get the heroin addicts to stay for the full three days, because of their gut-roiling symptoms. “They’ll puke and they’ll get the runs,” he said. “[They] can’t even get comfortable.” The counselors monitor them periodically, giving them their prescription medicines and checking blood pressure. The detox house is just a house; it’s not a medical facility and it can’t treat people for medical issues. Anyone who suffers a medical emergency is transferred to the hospital. People at detox also go through group counseling sessions, one-on-one counseling sessions and Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings during their stay. “Some come in here so broken they don’t even want to talk,” Davis said. In his 13 years working here, he has seen it all. Despite that, or maybe because of it, he is quick with
$15.25 per client per night, but not everyone is able to pay that. “If they don’t have it we still take them in,” Davis said. Usually staff will write down a client’s address, if they have one, and promise to bill them later. When someone inevitably skips out on the bill, that’s another hole in the detox center’s budget. Even if everyone paid their full copay, that would leave another $66.75 per night — or just over $200 per stay — to be funded by someone else. At 650 patients a year, which is how many came through the Eric Davis, Eureka’s detox center manager, smiles for center last year, that adds up the camera. to roughly $130,000.

budget proposal.” Cunningham’s nonprofit used to have an outpatient counseling program, where people with less serious problems could get group and one-on-one counseling before their addiction got out of control. Those counseling meetings were held at a bookstore ADCS used to run that sold 12step program and other recovery books. It had to give up the bookstore in 2009. The county also cut the contract for the winter shelter; its last winter was 20092010. The shelter was another way addicts could start the process of getting into a treatment program. “But that’s all those little points of contact that we’ve lost,” Cunningham said. ADCS had to give up one of its safe and sober houses in February; the property was rented and Cunningham could not afford to pay the expenses. “Way back when,” ADCS had 11 safe and sober houses throughout the community. It has let them go one by one, and now has just one left, a place specifically aimed at helping families affected by addiction. Responding to the continuing cuts, in Janu-
ary the detox center stopped accepting people coming to sober up from methamphetamine and marijuana, which don’t carry the major health risks withdrawal from alcohol does. There were far fewer people coming to the detox center from methamphetamine and marijuana, as well. However, this creates a small problem for the Humboldt Recovery Center, a residential treatment facility, which has a lot of people coming to recover from methamphetamine addiction. It used to refer a few people to detox every couple of months. “Recently we haven’t been able to use it,” said Joel McDonough, the founder and former executive director of the recovery center. The ADCS detox center was closed for two days in May because there wasn’t enough money to keep the lights on and the staff paid. Only two people were staying there for detox at the time and when their stays were up, Cunningham told Davis and the rest of the people working there to go home for a few days. Only 48 people were able to come to detox in May, versus 50-60 in an average month. “Word got out that we weren’t open,” Davis said. July 1 marks the beginning of the new fiscal year, and Cunningham has already signed a new $228,373 contract with the county, the same amount it has been since 2011-12. Usually, the money ends up being split about evenly between detox and the residential treatment programs, but this year, the contract specifies that exactly $112,433 of it must go to detox and the rest goes to residential treatment. Money from that contract won’t start coming until mid-August. On June 4, St. Joseph Hospital an-

nounced that it would give ADCS $12,530 for the detox center. The hospital does not offer non-medical detox services, and sometimes refers patients to detox to start recovery. “They just need this to help bridge them over,” Leslie Broomall, the hospital spokeswoman, said. Cunningham said the money is enough to keep detox “operating on a shoestring budget for about a month.” At the June 10 Board of Supervisors budget hearing, Michelle Hayden, the lead counselor for the men’s residential treatment program, brought some of the people who have successfully been through the program to attest to its worth and ask for more funding. Since she began running the Lee Brown C Street program in October, only three out of 30 people have failed to graduate. “I’m returning fathers to their children. I’m returning sons to their mothers. And I’m returning men back to the community,” Hayden said. Muller said that ADCS has not requested any more money. She passed along a statement from Director Phil Crandall, which said “the department’s position at this time has to be to maintain current contract amounts until we know more.” “I’ve always asked for more money,” Cunningham replied, when told about
the statement. He didn’t make a written request, he said, but instead asked a county staffer who he declined to name, saying he didn’t want to get that person in trouble. Muller said Cunningham was asked by a program manager to make a written proposal. Cunningham responded, “Nobody ever said anything about putting it in writing.” Muller said she hopes the county and Cunningham can meet and work it out. Cunningham gestures to his desk and explains that he probably has about $25,000 in bills sitting on it. “I’m not even sure we’ll make it next year,” he says.

continued from previous page Besides giving addicts a place to sleep and sober up, the center is often the only way people can gain access to all the resources they didn’t know were available, like county counseling, local safe and sober houses and residential treatment programs. Davis estimates that around 75 percent of people who complete their detox go into some sort of program. Last month, 11 people left before the three-day minimum — a sign that they don’t intend to follow through. The other 48 people completed detox successfully. “We love them no matter what,” Davis said. “We treat them like family.” If detox isn’t available, addicts will be left with the choice to sober up in jails, in emergency rooms, or on the streets. “These guys are like zombies out there,” Davis said. Plowright has tried to quit drinking on his own before and failed. He relapses every time. “When I’m desperate enough to come to detox it’s because I can’t quit on my own and I can’t keep going,” he said.

at detox is up, they get their belongings back from the locked closet on the second floor. If they can, they make their bed with clean sheets for the next people. They sign their discharge papers, and they and a staff member sit together and write an exit plan down on paper, so they don’t forget or get confused. “They’ve only got three or four days clean, so their brain’s still in a fog,” Davis explains. They change out of their pajamas, robes and slippers and back into the clothes they were wearing when they walked in days before. “Some are happy; they’re grateful. They’re thanking us. They’re writing me letters,” Davis said. Others do not want to leave. They’re scared to go out to the real world and face recovery, and they don’t know if they can do it.
As they’re leaving, Tatom has her own private ritual. “I pray for them as they walk out the door,” she said. Some people, Davis and the staff will never see again. Some will be back. Again. And again. And again. “That’s why it’s so important to keep these doors open,” Davis said. There is a sticker on the door that says, “Keep coming back.” Tatom explains that it really means “keep coming back until you get it right.” The detox center is full of success stories. Many of the people who work at ADCS came there first as clients with addictions of their own. Hayden is one of them. “People gave me a chance and I was county funded,” she said. In the living room of the detox center is a board with small plaques, each listing a name and an age. When someone who has been through detox dies, a new plaque with another name is placed on the board. There is an asterisk next to the name of each person who died sober. The asterisks pepper the board sparsely. But each one matters. ●

The Bible of Psychiatry (Part 1)
By Barry Evans
he bombshell came a few weeks before the recent publication of DSM-5, the fifth version of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Thomas Insel, director of the National Institutes of Mental Health (the world’s largest psychiatric research organization) wrote that the symptom-based DSM suffers from “a lack of validity” and that “symptoms alone rarely indicate the best choice of treatment.” Why should such criticism, written by a top mental health professional on his official government blog, matter to any of us not directly involved in psychiatry? Because the chances are that your life, or that of a close relative or friend, is affected by the DSM, the “Bible of psychiatry.” DSM-based diagnoses routinely affect: insurance coverage of mental health treatment and prescriptions; disability payments based on psychological factors; hiring and firing decisions; granting or withholding of security clearances; court decisions regarding child custody and criminal sentences; qualification for life insurance; therapies for students with learning disabilities; and much more. Diagnosis of mental illness is a very different procedure than diagnosis of, say, heart disease or AIDS, where physical tests are used to objectively check for obstruction of the aortic artery or the presence of the AIDS virus. Brain disorders don’t usually lend themselves to identification by physical tests, so psychological diagnoses are based on symptoms. For instance, if (based entirely on subjective observations) a psychiatrist believes that you meet nine of the DSM-listed criteria for major depressive disorder, you’ve got MDD. The DSM started out in 1952 with the best of intentions, aiming to provide mental health workers with a common language to describe psychopathology — which at the time included a wide range of mental, emotional or behavioral issues
USING CHARTS LIKE THESE, “PHRENOLOGISTS” ONCE CORRELATED BUMPS ON THE SKULL WITH CHARACTER DEFECTS. CRAZY AS IT NOW SOUNDS, PHRENOLOGY AT LEAST STROVE FOR MEASURABLE DATA, IN CONTRAST TO TODAY’S SUBJECTIVE DIAGNOSES. ILLUSTRATION FROM PEOPLE’S CYCLOPEDIA OF UNIVERSAL KNOWLEDGE
considered abnormal. (We’ll discuss what constitutes “abnormal” next week.) The danger now is that common issues such as grief following the death of a loved one, or occasional binge eating, can be categorized as disorders and treated as such. Before summarizing what’s wrong with the DSM (everything!), it’s worth looking at the extent of the problem. In a nutshell, we appear to be sicker even as we’re taking more meds. Since 1987, sales of antidepressants and antipsychotics in the U.S. have multiplied almost 50-fold, to $25 billion annually. At the same time, the percentage of the population receiving federal disability payments for mental illness has tripled. Out of every eight people, one is now taking psychotropic medication — including children and even toddlers. Insel’s criticism of the DSM underscores the more fundamental debate of whether psychiatry may be on the wrong track altogether. In adopting a predominantly “biomedical model,” psychiatrists assume that mental illness can be treated much the same as any other bodily afflictions: with drugs and, in extreme cases, surgery. Dr. Lucy Johnstone is a clinical psychologist and adviser to the British Psychological Society, which has a long tradition of questioning the “disease” model of mental illness. She writes, “There is now overwhelming evidence that people break down as a result of a complex mix of social and psychological circumstances — bereavement and loss, poverty and discrimination, trauma and abuse.” Next week we’ll look at some of the specific criticisms leveled against the DSM, and the future of research into mental illness. ● Barry Evans (barryevans9@yahoo. com) probably won’t be shelling out $133.22 for his copy of the DSM-5. However, copies of Barry’s Field Notes anthologies are available for much less at Eureka Books and Northtown Books.

Center Arts and Reggae news, plus punk and pretty weekend options By Jennifer Savage email@example.com
n the upside, the Van Duzer Theatre provides a respectable venue for the biggername acts that HSU’s Center Arts succeeds in bringing to town. On the downside, something about the room inflicts a certain sedate, even prim, self-restraint upon audiences. The default vibe is that of sitting still and clapping politely.

Location is everything
Pro tip: Seating is key. When someone tells you how amazing a show at the Van Duzer was, find out where they sat. (Chart here: www.humboldt.edu/centerarts/ seating-chart.) Odds are heavy that it was down in front and close to the center. If you’re the sort of person who cares more about sharing the experience with your fellow crowd members, then sure, sit anywhere. If you want to actually feel engaged with the performers, sit where you can see them without squinting or cocking your head at a weird angle all night. Some venues don’t have a bad seat in the house, but the Van Duzer is not on that list. That said, here are some of the musical

You Are Going to The Fair If you’re averse to dust, fast cars, barnyard droppings, clowns, bleating kids, baby animals, knowing-eyed weird birds, snakes, beverages, greasy fingers, dancing, smart-dog-and-cowboyon-cow action, rabbits, chickens, pies, quilts, flowers, art —even fine art! — and carneys, then you’d better make a contingency plan for June 20-23 (Thursday-Sunday). That’s when the 2013 Redwood Acres Fair “The Best of Humboldt” ensnares our fair region, and if you’re still in the county you will be forced to attend. Kidding. But we bet it’ll be hard for you to stay away as sugar-crustted tentacles of air swirl into your home and wrap charmlike around you. So ... a prescription for the fair faint-ofheart: After you pass through the gate to the fairgrounds, walk straight to Annie the Clown and have her paint on your I’m-having-a-blast mask; or, if you get there at 2 p.m. (or later), let the hypnotist fix you up. Next, load up on stuff for your belly. Then just have at it: Take a “Walk on the Wild Side” and sweettalk a baby maneater. Enter to win a free BMX bike and watch bike gymnasts twist through the air.

According to that studious set at Stanford, it takes just four minutes for single men and women meeting for the first time to decide whether or not they click. Huh? According to a Stanford study published May 2013, researchers scrutinized the interactions of 1,000 speed daters and determined that in four minutes, people have enough info about each other to know whether they’d like to spend more time together, or if they’d rather speed on. Are you lookin’, interested in meeting new peeps, or possibly a new partner? Well, on Friday, June 21, you’ll have your chance to do some speed dating, maybe even a little research of your own. Safer Sex Humboldt presents Quickies! Speed Dating for All! for date seekers 18 and older, “for all relationship styles, sexualities and gender identities.” That Stanford study uncovered even more about four minute date-type interactions. Ready? Before racing off to speed date, consider these points: Both genders reported “clicking” or connecting when the conversation was mainly about the woman. So, hetero guys, focus on the lady, engage her, make her the center of your interaction. Get it? Also, whether man or woman, don’t ask too many questions. Why? Women don’t click when they have to ask questions, nor when men ask them question after question. Women reported feeling like they had to do all the work to keep the conversation going if they mostly asked questions. Women also felt that men who asked too many questions really had nothing to say. Huh. So, how many questions are too many? Are these research findings similar for gay and lesbian speed daters? What can you learn in four minutes? Get out there, speed date, do your research and get back to us! Things get going at 7:30 p.m, at Old Town Coffee and Chocolates, 211 F St., Eureka. $5 to pre-register or $10 at the door. To register, email email@example.com, or find the safe sex folks on Facebook at https:// www.facebook.com/SaferSexHumboldt. — Josephine Johnson

By John J. Bennett
THIS IS THE END. I feel somehow out of line for not liking this movie all that much. For years now I’ve been tracking the careers of the principal actors, who all play tweaked versions of themselves here. And as a writing team on movies such as Superbad and Pineapple Express, Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen have successfully mined their pervy brand of humor from the craggy mountains of postponed adolescence, male friendship and fumbling sexuality. But now, having moved into the director’s chair for the first time, they seem to have lost sight of the forest for the trees (or of the story for the jokes, maybe). The movie opens with Jay Baruchel arriving in Los Angeles to visit his longtime friend Rogen. They hole up in Rogen’s house to get high and play videogames, but as the afternoon winds down, Rogen floats the idea of attending a housewarming party at James Franco’s newly finished digs in the Hollywood Hills. Baruchel has misgivings about Rogen’s celebrity friends, but he reluctantly agrees. At the soiree, Rogen quickly bails on his buddy, and Baruchel finds his foreboding justified. Just as their friendship seems to be reaching the breaking point, all hell breaks loose — seemingly literally: Fire-belching chasms open in the earth, swallowing countless TV and movie personalities within minutes. Meanwhile, scores of

people are caught up in rays of blue light and ascend into the ether. In the aftermath, Rogen, Baruchel, Franco, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill and Danny McBride are left behind in Franco’s pad-cum-existential lifeboat. With the collapse of civilization literally at their doorstep, the weaknesses in their personalities, relationships and belief systems are brought to the fore. They also take drugs and tell dick jokes — like, a lot of dick jokes. The scenes that work well are those that let the actors get wild and test each other. But the thematic thread needed to sew those scenes together frequently frays and breaks. There are moments when continued on next page

continued from previous page Baruchel’s sadness and discomfort with Rogen’s fame — and Rogen’s subsequent embrace of a new social circle — show real depth and honesty. And the crazy dynamic Franco establishes with everybody else goes a long way toward deflating his precious, self-serious reputation. And as usual, McBride steals every frame in which he appears. Robinson’s no slouch, either. But it seems like Goldberg and Rogen, both as writers and directors, take on too much with this one. The CGI sequences of post-apocalypse LA seem tacked-on and unnecessary after the intimacy of scenes inside the house. Somewhere along the way, the script wanders from interpersonal relationships and solid joke-craft into a dubious attempt at horror, which flat doesn’t work. And the ending, while unexpected, isn’t original or even mildly satisfying. There’s also a troublingly cynical running joke about religious belief that bothers me, though I have a hard time pinning down why. Something about the winking tone of a movie set against the backdrop of the Rapture (which, believe me, I have no truck with either) seems like both pandering and having a laugh at someone else’s expense. Maybe that’s reading too much into it. Maybe I just want there to be some underlying purpose — a postmodern riff on contemporary religion, perhaps — that redeems the movie intellectually, even if it doesn’t make it any more likeable. Whatever the case, This Is The End left me wanting something it never delivers. R. 107m. MAN OF STEEL. After a pair of bracing, artfully cut teaser trailers, I found myself looking forward to this. Director Zack Snyder’s track record may not be perfect, but I really enjoyed Watchmen (2009) and I could watch his Dawn of the Dead (2004) just about any time. Of course, I can’t stand Sucker Punch (2011) or 300 (2006), so it’s a mixed bag. At the beginning of his Superman reboot it looked like Snyder might do some interesting, thoughtful things. He does, but they become so obscured among the countless dumber things that the final product comes off as forgettable, clumsy and far too expansive. In taking on the entire origin story, including the rise and fall of Krypton’s grand society, Man of Steel loses what would ostensibly be its central theme: hope and kindness victorious over prejudice and violence. The plot jumps erratically from one time period to another, attempting a kaleidoscopic view of the genesis of Superman/Clark Kent (Henry Cavill). His birth father, Jor-El (Russell Crowe), and his adoptive one, Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), feature prominently, but
neither character is developed enough to resonate. The battle sequences take place across vast land and cityscapes, on such a large, distracting scale that none of the elements make a lasting impact. There’s some very pretty filmmaking at work here. But overall, it’s just too long, too cacophonous, too much for the story to sustain. — John J. Bennett
