Editor: I disagree with many of the claims made by critics of restoration practices on the beach and dunes (“Stake-Out,” June 27). I would like, however, to address the comments that have been made regarding the threats restoration supposedly poses to infrastructure: homes, roads, power and water lines on the peninsula, especially in Manila, where these claims might have the most relevance. Restoration does not occur near homes. Most homes in Manila have wetland or forest barriers between their homes and dunes and where this is not the case restoration is not done.

Name That Dune

Editor: I wonder how many people out there are concerned about rising sea levels in the future and/or the probability of earthquakes and tsunamis affecting our coast at some time in the future. If you think those things are something we should prepare for, then let’s talk about our dune stability. The foredunes protect our coastal wetlands, the dune forest and all the wildlife that depends on those areas to live. The back dunes protect the coastal residents and our homes. It has now come to our attention that we have a possible solution to the dune erosion that has occurred in the recent years. The idea of placing wood slats on the eroding areas to collect sand that the wind blows in that direction is an inexpensive and negative environmental impact solution. Why would anyone be against the experiment? View the YouTube video “Coastal Restoration Using Biomimicry” to see the idea. I hope that all the involved parties can come together to solve these problems instead of the refusal to face the issues. We are at a crossroad here. We need to admit that some current practices are not working and consider other avenues. Laurie Ervin, Arcata

service to the reader and potentially leads innocent people into danger. Slurping five or six ounces of wine and hopping onto a bicycle on Briceland Road is not a good thing for a tourist to do. Before trying this on a bicycle drive the road first. That should scare you off. The name of the column should have been “Get Out of My Way!” If you want to drink and ride go to Sonoma, they have miles of paved off-the-road bicycle trails. And, by the way, the same DUI laws apply to bicyclists. And under the exertion of cycling alcohol can have stronger effects, including blackout. Anna Hamilton, Eureka

Brain Busters Editor: I have read previous articles from Barry on mental health issues and I look forward to seeing this new series from start to finish (“Field Notes,” June 20 and 27). As former Humboldt County Mental Health Board chair, I can tell you that the medical model has gotten far too much press in the past and in other media. This new DSM V is going to make nearly everything a disorder or what some would call “a brain disease” or a “chemical imbalance.” Did you know none of those have ever been proved? Watch closely the advertising and they will say “it is thought to be caused by a chemical imbalance.” Never proved. Do you know of anyone who has ever had their neuro-chemicals checked? Were they too high or low? Humm! Now they call mental illness a “brain disease.” Oh really, what part of my brain is diseased? Point to the spot. I have always felt psychiatry is a pseudoscience and note the package inserts which say “we do not know the exact way this works on the brain.”

The federal government says now that one in four of us is mentally ill. I guess the rest of them are doctors and therapists. Go get them Barry. I am looking forward to more facts on the subject. Henry Willey, Arcata Editor: I have been psychologically diagnosed by other-worldly beings, and they have diagnosed me as fitting into the WTRNR category. That means “Wilder Than Rock ‘N’ Roll.” Treatment and “recovery” are out of the question! I was born wilder than rock ‘n’ roll. And my older siblings tried to make me “normal” by listening to rock ‘n’ roll, but it never worked. I wasn’t born normal. And I never became normal by the time I was 15 years old, when I saw The Outer Limits episode “The Galaxy Being” on television in 1963. I was beyond reach of psychiatrists after that! Someday after I publish my book titled “I Can Think About Meaning, Therefore I Am” I will be adopted by native tribes around the world. And they will nickname me “Chief Wilder Than Rock ‘n’ Roll.” And all the natives are going to laugh every time they hear my name. They’ll be laughing at all the people who want to be “normal” and be part of “the civilized world.” I hope to form a world honor society for adult and adolescent victims and survivors of child abuse. Many of us have needs and problems that require future research to understand. Past and present diagnostical statistical manuals are profoundly limited. When the time is right I’ll invite people to help us create, organize and publicize this world honor society. Think of Pulitzer Prizes, Nobel Prizes and Templeton Prizes. And honor, respect and protect what is mysterious and wild in everyone! Orion Palomar, Eureka

Decriminalize Addiction Editor: In regards to “The Cost of Getting Clean,” (June 20) I find it appalling that we can find money (trillions) to fight unnecessary wars, keep a bloated military budget going, subsidize large corporations, etc. and we cannot find the money to adequately fund programs like the Detox Center (and so many others) in our county/state/country. We need to come together on programs like this to make sure that we support them. The real question is what is the cost of people not getting clean? Homelessness, crime, death, wasted lives. I would prefer more of my tax dollars to go to programs like the Detox Center than the others above. In other countries these programs are funded, for there is a shared value that people take care of each other as a community. In our country the prevailing paradigm is every person for themselves and if you don’t have the money for treatment, too bad. Every person for themselves does not make a community that I want to live in. I am not the first person that says that we need to reframe our conceptions of alcohol and drug (and all other) abuse and addiction as a public health issue, not a crime. We need to assist people to heal what brings them to become so self-destructive and therefore destructive to society instead of punishing them, if for no other reason than it doesn’t work because it doesn’t address the issue. The incidence of addiction is widespread. Let’s make the funds available to address the real causes and stop criminalizing and ruining people’s lives. Wage Peace. Lynn Kerman, Eureka

Go, Supes Editor: The guiding principles of the General Plan draft were written by county staff in

2004 from input that was gathered at GPU meetings up until 2004 (Publisher, June 13). That means that the draft guiding principles are nine years old! Of course they need to be revised and updated. So what about the nine years worth of input that people gave after 2004 up until 2013? Some people are making ridiculous claims that the proposed new revisions to the guiding principles were made up out of thin air by Supervisor Estelle Fennell, when in reality the revisions were based on the additional input that came in after 2004. Are the naysayers, that don’t want to see any changes to the 2004 guiding principles, saying that those people don’t have a right to be included? That their input doesn’t count, can’t be considered, shouldn’t be heard, shouldn’t be included? I applaud the supervisors for not being a rubber stamp because the guiding principles obviously needed to be revised to make them current and inclusive. Especially since a lot of the input given was from rural people that had not really participated until the last few years. The vast majority of the GPU meetings were held in urban areas. Meetings in the outlying rural areas were poorly advertised and not well attended, so to say that input from rural residents has been underrepresented is an understatement. Supervisor Fennell and the other supervisors are showing good leadership and are doing the right thing by making sure that all input regarding the guiding principles is considered and included, not just the input from 2004 and before.

Strawberry Rock: Mission Accomplished? By Emily Hamann


ithin a few years, hikers may be able to enjoy the view from the top of Strawberry Rock — without first having to break the law. Green Diamond Resource Co., the logging company that owns Strawberry Rock and the surrounding forest, is working on a deal that would give the public legal access to the land. In February, Green Diamond held a community forum in Bayside where it announced plans to protect Strawberry Rock by creating a conservation easement around the rock, the path to the rock, and 24 acres of forest next to the trail that had been destined for cutting. The total easement would be 38 acres of protected land, free for public use. Green Diamond reached out to the Trust for Public Land, a nonprofit that finds money for projects like this. The logging company does not know exactly how much money the land is worth, but spokesman Gary Rynearson gave a rough estimate that it would take less than $1 million to compensate Green Diamond for the property it would not get to use and the timber it would not harvest. Right now the Trust for Public Land is eyeing Caltrans for money from its Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation Program, said John Bernstein, the trust’s North Coast program manager. That is a pot of $10 million annually that goes to a number of environmental projects related to transportation. Because Strawberry Rock is just off Highway 101, Bernstein thinks this might apply. The trust has not submitted an application yet, and Bernstein won’t say how much it will ask for, but he is “pretty optimistic” about getting some money.

“We’ve been pretty good at getting grants from them in the past,” he said. Bernstein said Green Diamond will likely need other sources of funding. The company has also approached the Coastal Conservancy, a state organization that works to protect resources near the coast. “We think that it’s a good project, but we’re not sure it’s the project for us,” Coastal Conservancy Project Manager Joel Gerwein said. His concern is that Strawberry Rock is too localized a landmark; it does not have statewide appeal. Gerwein mentioned, though, that the conservancy might contribute a portion of the funding if a significant amount of the money comes form somewhere else. Bernstein estimates that advocates for Strawberry Rock access will need to find three or four different sources to get all the money together. He does not have anything else specific in mind; they’re still exploring their options. Efforts like this normally take between two and five years, Bernstein said. So while the project is in the works, it will probably be a while before the “no trespassing” signs at the entrance to the trailhead come down. Even though Strawberry Rock could be protected from logging, environmental groups are still protesting. Several people are camped in the trees near Trinidad right now. Why? “The first thing is about their forest practices,” activist Jack Nounan said. Environmental groups like Earth First! and Friends of Trinidad Forests are primarily calling for Green Diamond to stop clearcutting and switch to selective cutting, taking no more than 2 to 3 percent of the trees in an area at a time. The activists also worry about Strawberry Rock. “We want 640 acres; we want the

whole square mile (or one section) around Strawberry Rock saved,” Nounan said. The public is already using the land Green Diamond would be giving up in the easement, he added. The “no trespassing” signs have never stopped people from trespassing to get to Strawberry Rock. The Yurok tribe, on the other hand, is satisfied with Green Diamond’s plans. For the Yurok, Strawberry Rock is a spiritual place with deep cultural significance, and Yurok Heritage Preservation Officer Robert McConnell met with Rynearson to talk about the easement a few weeks ago. The Yurok want to keep the area as much out of the spotlight as possible, so more tourists are not drawn to the rock. “We were trying to work behind the scenes,” he said. So when Bay Area photographer Jack Gescheidt announced plans to make the rock the highlight of his latest project, complete with more than 70 naked volunteers and a rented helicopter, McConnell sent him a letter asking him to please

reconsider. Gescheidt’s “Tree Spirit Project” uses art to try to raise awareness about forests in danger of being cut down. He takes photographs of nude subjects with the at-risk trees to try to draw the attention of the community and activists. “If people become increasingly aware of where their products come from, it diminishes the demand,” Gescheidt said. After Gescheidt announced his plans to stage his photo shoot at Strawberry Rock, McConnell wrote him a letter explaining its significance. “Since time immemorial the place known as Strawberry Rock and surrounding lands have held high cultural significance to Yurok People,” the letter said. “The Tribe feels that the action[s] you are proposing to undertake at this site are highly inappropriate.” The letter ends by asking Gescheidt to reconsider his plan and calls the event an “insult” to the area and the Yurok people. McConnell notes that all his contact information was on the let-

ter. “He didn’t even bother to pick up the phone,” he said. Gescheidt said he was surprised by the letter and the Yurok’s feelings about his project. “I was surprised that nudity was such a big deal in Native American culture,” he said. He was also surprised that the Yurok were upset about him going to the rock, “but what about Green Diamond, who is going to destroy an entire forest?” Gescheidt went ahead with his project, and did the photo shoot on top of Strawberry Rock. “He is a non-native, not from here. It’s not his cultural site. He didn’t even ask,” McConnell said. “All he’s trying to do is sell his pictures.” McConnell said that it would be respectful for everyone who publicizes Strawberry Rock to ask the Yurok first, and that people who hike it for fun should be respectful of its value to the tribe. “I wish I could go out there and talk to everybody and impress upon them the spiritual significance,” he said. l • North Coast Journal • Thursday, July 4, 2013

Co-op Security Accused of Excessive Force

A civilian “loss prevention officer” employed by the North Coast Co-op in Arcata chased down and handcuffed an alleged shoplifter on Saturday afternoon, and a neighboring business owner who witnessed the arrest says the man used excessive force. Michael Kingg, a Co-op member and owner of the bead supply store on the corner of Eighth and I streets, said he was working in his shop around 3 p.m. when his kids called out to him, telling him to come look at the man holding a woman down outside. “I didn’t know if this guy was a cop, a mugger, her boyfriend,” Kingg said in an interview Monday afternoon. “It looked like he was going for cuffs, but he was in plain clothes.” The man kept the woman pinned to the ground, kneeling on her neck and pulling her arm back to cuff her.

In his email, Kingg described what happened next: “He tried to come in the [bead] AN UNIDENTIFIED CO-OP SECURITY GUARD CUFFS AN ALLEGED SHOPLIFTER. shop & physically PHOTO BY MICHAEL KINGG. take the camera from me, but the door was already Kingg felt that the force was excessive and locked by that time & with the arrival of snapped a few photos, including the one the APD [Arcata Police Department] he no printed here. longer tried to steal my camera, or make “I asked him if he would provide his mention of it.

In a phone interview Monday afternoon, Arcata Police Detective Sgt. Todd Dokweiler said that the woman was a shoplifter fleeing from store employees. “We were notified, we responded and we accepted the citizen’s arrest,” Dokweiler said. “It’s a pretty common situation where employees will detain someone — either cooperatively or not.” Kingg posted his photos of the incident on Facebook and later walked over to the Co-op, where the security guard was “real apologetic” about trying to take his camera, he said. But Kingg is still hoping that Co-op management will take action to prevent such an incident from happening again. Reached Monday afternoon, Arcata store manager Kevin Waters said, “As with any situation like this we’re going to investigate it fully.” Beyond that he had no comment. ● BY EMILY HAMANN / MONDAY, JULY 1 AT 7:18 P.M.

Pride: SF Style

This year’s gay pride parade in San Francisco was a historic celebration, coming just days after the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act and in

effect nullified Proposition 8. Because the Journal and the San Francisco LGBT newspaper The Bay Times share the same printing company, the Journal was offered two seats on the Bay Times float, a bright blue open-top bus with balloons tied to the railings. Bay Times editor Betty Sullivan was chosen as one of the grand marshals of the parade. Around 9:30 a.m. Saturday, the contingents lined the cross streets of Market Street, the parade’s route. The San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band played a warm-up song: “Chapel of Love.” It was Marvin Munoz’s first time at the pride parade. “It was really nice,” he said. “I saw a lot of things I wasn’t expecting to see.” Things like the sheer volume of people who walked in support of whistleblower Bradley Manning, the San Francisco Leather Alliance bondage float and “public nudity — which, OK.” Then there was the PETA float, with women running alongside in cabbage bikinis, the Safeway float, the Bank of America float and the Kaiser Permanente float, followed by a crowd of people with giant blue balloons. Parade attendee Kelly Acton’s son, Skylar, came out when he was 16. “When my son first came out, I was afraid for

him,” she said, with tears in her eyes. But coming to the pride parade makes her feel better. She likes seeing all these people celebrating and supporting people like him, she said. “I feel like the world is a safer place for my son.” See a slideshow of photos from the parade online at www.northcoastjournal. com. ● FRIVOLITY / BY CARRIE PEYTON DAHLBERG / SATURDAY, JUNE 29 AT 6:50 P.M.

The Big Sandy

From castles to koi fish, squid to sunbathers, sandy creations sprung up alongside the sea in Manila today — only to disintegrate as the waves advanced. Among the ephemera were two giant, lanky bodies, seaweed hair streaming down their shoulders, who looked so relaxed they tempted one person after another to lie beside them. If there had been a prize for most interactive sand sculpture, this surely would have nabbed it, said Terry Devine, a member of the Wildberries team that dreamed these two up. “It went viral,” she said, in between offering to take pictures of passers-by who wanted their place in the sun. ●

Supreme Court’s marriage rulings reflect changing times


ith a pair of rulings, the nation’s highest court has captured a moment of change in America. Coming just before the Fourth of July, a celebration of independence, the twin rulings acknowledge our deepest dependence — all the ways in which one spouse can support, cherish and comfort the other. The June 26 decisions set off a cascade of changes that will reverberate for years. In these pages we look at a few of them: the revival of gay marriages in Humboldt, including one that was anxiously rushed to forestall any other legal roadblocks. The ways that federal tax law, Social Security and other programs will now apply to same-sex couples, along with the continuing ambiguities that will have to be sorted out for months, or years, to come. And the still-active efforts to halt gay marriages in California. — Carrie Peyton Dahlberg

They Do!

As state marriage law shifts almost daily, gay weddings resume By Jennifer Fumiko Cahill


hen Jean Morgan, who goes by Morgan, came back into her bedroom after a morning cup of coffee last week, her partner of 10 years, Tina, was crying. Tina had been up all night awaiting the Supreme Court’s decisions on the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8, and Morgan thought the court must have upheld both. Instead, Tina proposed. Morgan accepted, and the couple married five days later, on Tina’s birthday, at the Humboldt County Courthouse in Eureka. The high court had ruled the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional, a tremendous victory for supporters of same-sex marriage nationwide. The court also dismissed the appeal for Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in California. The proposition, voted into law in 2008, had been declared unconstitutional first by U.S. District Court Judge Vaughn Walker in 2010, and again by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in 2012. The decision set in motion a swift legal juggernaut. Last Friday, the 9th Circuit Court lifted the stay that has kept same-sex marriages on hold during the appeal. Typically, circuit and district courts hold off until the end of the Supreme Court’s 25-day waiting period, during which parties can file to be heard again, but the 9th Circuit moved quickly. By end of business on Friday, gay and lesbian couples in San Francisco were already married, and Morgan and Tina, first on the call-back list at the county clerk’s office in Eureka, heard that they could get their license immediately. Proposition 8 backers applied over the weekend to halt same-sex


marriages until the waiting period ends, but the high court rejected the motion. The Supreme Court’s dismissal of Proposition 8 goes in the win column for proponents of marriage equality, but it’s not a total victory. In all three hearings since 2008, the petitioners, an organization called ProtectMarriage, went to court without state backing because California’s governor and attorney general declined to defend the proposition. In the case of Proposition 8, the Supreme Court didn’t actually rule on the standing of same-sex couples — it ruled on the standing of the Proposition 8 petitioners, finding that they were not “agents of the state” and had “no personal stake” in the matter of gay and lesbian marriage, as they were not personally injured by Walker’s initial ruling striking down the ban. On June 29, when pro-Proposition 8 lawyers Andrew Pugno, James Campbell and David Nimocks filed their application to stop same-sex marriages until the end of the 25-day waiting period, the specter of another legal blockade was enough to spook Morgan and Tina. They had seen marriage rights rolled back in San Francisco and throughout the state before. The two decided to go ahead and get married at the courthouse as soon as possible and hold a full ceremony and reception with family and friends later. This was not the first time Tina proposed to her partner. Previously, Morgan was reluctant to marry when it was only legal in some states, but time and illness changed her mind. The women have been domestic partners since 2007, and Morgan said, “I’ve never been happier with anybody else, so there was never

Dumping DOMA

continued from previous page around 50 licenses being given to same-sex couples, but the office didn’t keep count. Record keeping was at her discretion, and state didn’t request numbers. “The whole intent of the law was that they were to be treated equally,” she said. So why count just one type of marriage? Elsewhere in the state that year, some county clerks resisted, but not in Humboldt. Clerk Sari Baker recalls Crnich informing the staff that there would be no refusing to issue licenses to same-sex couples. Baker said the clerk’s office had no trouble, and she doesn’t foresee any resistance this time around either. Morgan was “beyond excited” about getting married for the first time in her life. Still, her joy was tinged with disappointment that the Supreme Court’s ruling on Proposition 8 did not declare the ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional. She also wished her parents had survived to see her married. Morgan mentioned a couple she knows who have been married 40 years and she lamented the fact that she won’t be able to look back at that long a marriage. “I’m 51,” she said, “the government has taken that from me.” Tina knew she was going to propose if the court’s decisions went their way, but she was surprised by how emotionally overwhelming the moment was. “It was anticipation and nervousness,” she said, “like your whole life is hanging in the balance for somebody to give you a right that should already be yours … and you don’t have a say in it.”

On Tuesday afternoon, the couple said their vows in the courthouse wedding room, wearing matching pale pink shirts and white satin ties. Tina wore a breast cancer pin as a tie tack. Morgan wore a white “wedding beanie” and carried a bouquet of pink roses. They loaned one another bracelets for “something borrowed” and wore blue socks. Linda Shapeero, president of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays and the Journal’s own photographer Kim Hodges served as witnesses. A sharply suited Deputy Clerk Ben Hershberger presided, asking each of the women if they would “take this person as [her] spouse.” Morgan answered, “I do,” and Tina answered, “Absolutely.” Afterward, the couple gave all in attendance tiny beaded rings Morgan made to commemorate the occasion. After marveling at their marriage certificate a moment, Morgan thanked Hershberger and the rest of the staff for being “beyond awesome” and for treating her and her wife like every other couple. Hershberger replied, “Well … you are.” The Morgans are relieved to be legally wed before anything else happens on the federal or state legal fronts. They hope to have a ceremony to share with loved ones in six months or so. Tina has been married once before: a quick ceremony for a marriage that ended. This will be her first “real” wedding reception. She’s planning on wearing white, and would like a fairly traditional ceremony, since, she said, “I’m kind of an old-fashioned girl.” l

Gay spouses will now get federal benefits — but not all of them, and not everywhere By Grant Scott-Goforth


ou could be forgiven for losing sight of the Supreme Court’s decision to cast out parts of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) last week. In California, which has followed the public battle over Proposition 8 for nearly five years, the news that gay couples can once again get married was more tactile and magnetic than a bunch of talk about taxes. But when justices repealed Section 3 of DOMA, which was enacted by Congress and signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996, they opened up more than 1,100 benefits and protections that had previously been awarded only to straight couples, even in states where gay marriage was legal. Those benefits range from the pedestrian (married gay couples can now file joint tax returns) to the meaningful (husbands and wives of gay military members will be allowed to visit family members on base) to the peculiar (you can now transfer ownership of your uninhabited guano island to your spouse). While many of the protections are

seemingly minor or uncommon, they constitute a meaningful change in how gay couples are perceived by our government. Still, some uncertainties remain, particularly for married gay couples who later relocate to one of the 36 states where gay marriages are not recognized. Jamila Tharp and her wife Michelle Hasting were one of the first couples to marry in Humboldt County during that brief period in 2008 before Proposition 8 passed and prevented counties from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples. They’d been in love since 1990 and had married in Canada in 2006. Not shy of making a statement (their daughter Abigail led an equality march across the Golden Gate Bridge at age 4), the couple had been coming into County Clerk Carolyn Crnich’s office once a year since 2004 to apply for a license, knowing they’d be denied. When the state Supreme Court ruled in May 2008 that gay marriage was protected by the California constitution, Tharp recalled, Crnich personally called them and said “get down here.”

After marrying, they moved to Salt separate countries, even though it might Lake City, where Tharp studied to be a sometimes seem that way.” Unitarian Universalist minister, then to Phillip Smith-Hanes, the county’s chief Oregon, where they now live with their administrative officer, said he was pleased three children. Tharp said she’s uncertain by the Supreme Court’s ruling, but that he what federal benefits will actually apply and his husband Stan aren’t the “poster to her and her family — Oregon does not children” for the effects of DOMA’s recognize gay marriages. “I’m still kind of repeal.

Dumping DOMA

continued from previous page their marriage, she said. “I’m hoping I might get health insurance now.” While DOMA’s repeal doesn’t mean drastic changes for them (“We don’t have kids and we’re still pretty young and we’re super poor”), Charlotte said, the nuts and bolts make a difference. “It’s death and taxes,” she said. “It’s all really practical and it’s not very glamorous or romantic stuff — the things you don’t necessarily want to talk about.” Since they married in 2008, they filed cumbersome tax returns each year — joint state taxes, two individual federal returns and a federal addendum to explain how shared income, assets and debts were accounted for. “It’s almost like being half married.” Eileen Sacra Capaccio, a certified public accountant at Hunter, Hunter and Hunt in Eureka, said filing joint taxes will not necessarily save a married gay couple money. If both are employed, the combined income could push them into a higher tax bracket. “It is going to be on a case-by-case basis, and it’ll help some people.” Capaccio said she filed extensions this year for gay clients who would benefit from a joint filing, anticipating that the DOMA ruling might change their federal status. The six-month extension may not be enough, Capaccio said. The ruling isn’t official until late July, and then all eyes will be on the Internal Revenue Service for instructions. She’s not sure whether the IRS will enact and explain new policies in time for the Oct. 15 filing deadline. Ric Warren, who owns Ric’s Haircolor Salon in Arcata, said he and his husband Dante DiGenova were relieved that the ruling could provide additional clarity for medical decisions. “I can make a decision for him and he can make a decision for me that, hopefully, we’ve discussed prior.” Referencing stories of legal battles that have occurred around the U.S. between surviving gay spouses and disapproving families, Warren said it was a relief that the house they own together could be transferred with relative simplicity. “When you’re gay, oftentimes there are

people in your family who disapprove,” Warren said. “Somebody on the other side of the family might decide they’re going to step in and take it — and before, they could have. We’d like to decide who got it.” “It’s nice to have some clarity where we stand,” DiGenova said. “Especially since we’ve been together so long. After a while you sort of expect you have the same rights as everybody else.” Some readers may have seen a video circulating around Facebook recently of two Humboldt County sisters introducing President Obama at an LGBT Pride Month reception. After calling for increased school funding and gun control, Zea and Luna Weiss-Wynne asked for Obama’s support of gay marriage “because we have two moms and they are just as good as other parents. They love us a lot.” Those moms, Nora Wynne and Lara Weiss, were celebrating the DOMA ruling last week. Weiss, who works for the County Department of Public Health, said she and Wynne have talked about working internationally — a realm of uncertain protections for gay American couples. Repeal of DOMA could make it safer for gay couples to work abroad, Wynne speculated. Zea and Luna, both 9, are happy with the ruling, though Wynne said their daughters struggle with understanding why people oppose gay marriage. “To them it’s a very public issue right now, more than what they’re used to.” Many questions remain. Some benefits may apply retroactively for couples who have been married. It’s still unclear how federal benefits will be awarded in states that don’t recognize gay marriage. Section 2 of DOMA, which allows states to discriminate against gay couples married in other states, still stands. Nearly everyone who spoke with the Journal about DOMA last week said more needs to be done to recognize LGBT rights. They called for protections against discrimination in adoptions, housing and employment. Still, the latest victory, Jamila Tharp said, was more than a twinkle of hope. “We’re really positive. We feel like there’s going to be tremendous change.” l

Benefits at a Glance The Defense of Marriage Act limited more than 1,100 benefits and protections for couples in gay marriages. With Section 3 of the act repealed, it appears gay couples may be afforded those rights. According to the Human Rights Campaign, a national organization that has advocated for LGBT rights, people living in gay-marriage-approved states should be eligible for those benefits as soon as the Supreme Court’s decision takes effect, 25 days after the ruling was issued. Among them, according to a task force of LGBT advocacy groups, are: Military spousal benefits: Service members receive roughly 30 percent of their total compensation in base pay. The remaining 70 percent comes from special allowances and benefits, including many that are increased for married service members. They include retirement benefits, insurance coverage, the ability to move off base with a spouse, and access to legal assistance, base facilities and family center programs. Medical leave: The Family and Medical Leave Act allows eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid leave to care for a spouse who has a serious health condition. Federal employees: Spouses of federal employees may be eligible for employer-provided health insurance coverage, although it remains unclear how this will be handled in states that ban gay marriage. Social Security: The retirement spousal benefit allows a non-earning or lower earning spouse to collect an amount that is equal to half of the other spouse’s Social Security benefit. In addition, Social Security pays benefits to people who cannot work because they have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. Federal taxes: The Internal Revenue Service is expected to ask gay married couples to file joint tax returns. For those marriages recognized by the IRS, tax preparation should be simpler and less expensive than it was with DOMA. The questions that have faced married same-sex couples at tax time, like “who claims which child” and “how much of the mortgage deduction or charitable deduction do we each take” are eliminated for married same-sex couples. Immigration: The spouse of a U.S. citizen will, in many cases, qualify for a green card. Private employment: Although DOMA did not bar private employers from offering most spousal employment benefits to employees’ same-sex spouses, it subjected same-sex couples to discriminatory tax treatment. For example, married same-sex couples had to pay additional income taxes on the value of employer-sponsored health insurance, and divorced same-sex couples were barred by federal law from obtaining a court order sharing pension benefits as part of a divorce agreement.

What Next for Gay Marriage Foes? By Emily Hamann


hile Proposition 8 proponents have been strategizing about how to salvage a ban on gay marriages in California, some in Humboldt County are saying that at this point, their best strategy is prayer. With the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals acting swiftly last week to lift its stay on gay unions, and the state attorney general, governor and department of public health all on board, chances are looking bleaker for tactics that could halt the marriages. “Proposition 8 is going to die a quiet death,” said Vikram Amar, associate dean for academic affairs and professor at the U.C. Davis School of Law. Protect Marriage, the group that lobbied for Proposition 8 and hired the legal team to defend it in court, has run out of options, he said. The Alliance Defending Freedom, a group of attorneys that acted as cocouncil in the Proposition 8 case, had asked the Supreme Court on Saturday to block the state’s issuance of marriage licenses. But on Sunday, Justice Anthony Kennedy turned down that request, without comment. Jordan Lorence, senior council at the alliance, told the Journal in a phone interview on Monday that the alliance is weighing two options: making its next stand in state court or in federal court. If it wants to try federal court, it has 25 days from when the decision was announced to petition the Supreme Court for a rehearing of the case. If it opts to fight in state court, Lorence said, it might look into representing a county clerk who ignores the governor’s call to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. “The only thing [county clerks] are required to do is uphold all parts of the state constitution, which includes Proposition 8,” he said.

It’s possible that in some California county, a county clerk might refuse to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, arguing that the earlier court case applied only to the two couples who sued to block Proposition 8. That would be unlikely to go far, though, Amar said. California Attorney General Kamala Harris, in her analysis of last week’s Supreme Court ruling on Proposition 8, wrote that it applies statewide since it involves a constitutional challenge to the law. Thus, Harris said, all county clerks must issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples if they want to uphold the law. While the lawyers and the judges battle it out, Humboldt County residents who have been pushing against gay marriage have been turning inward. “Our first pushback is prayer,” said Cameron English, lead pastor of the Eureka First Assembly of God. “This country was founded on God, and we’re turning our back on God,” he said. Other people, like 59-year-old India Nzila, believe that prayer is the only option left to them. She has been a Christian for about 40 years, and attends Arcata First Baptist Church. “I believe that marriage is something that comes from the Bible. It has everything to do with my faith,” she said. She made very clear that she does not dislike gay people. “My heart is not against them,” she said. She is even in favor of civil unions, and certain legal rights for gay couples, “but calling it marriage is just not cool.” “It’s like hijacking something that comes from the Bible,” she said. “It’s like hijacking my faith.” She is not married and said that because of the ruling, she doesn’t ever want to get married. “It’s no longer a sacred thing,” she said. “It’s kind of pointless.” “My heart is just broken.” ●

A Time to Embrace By Carrie Peyton Dahlberg and Emily Hamann


ith chants and kazoos, cheers and party horns, revelers sent up a joyful noise in Eureka and Arcata on Wednesday evening, celebrating a pair of Supreme Court rulings on gay marriage. Outside the Humboldt County Courthouse in Eureka, drivers honked in shared jubilation as they passed, and Susan McGee marveled that the support had begun sounding the minute she arrived around 5 p.m. So much had changed in her lifetime, McGee said. Twenty years ago, in a time when gay marriage seemed to be “the idea of science fiction and fantasy … I would never have believed it.” Not just the support from the nation’s highest court, but the acceptance from so many who would once have been hostile or indifferent. McGee, of the Humboldt Equality Coalition, helped organize the rally along with Linda Shapeero of the Eureka-Arcata PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays). They figured that well over 200 people had stopped by the Eureka event sometime during the evening, because they had handed out 125 chant sheets and plenty of people didn’t take one. When people weren’t chanting (“two, four, six, eight, give us equality in every state,”) they were waving rainbow flags, hoisting signs that read “love unites” and “love wins again,” and hugging. And smiling. But many also remembered that one day earlier, the U.S. Supreme Court had struck down part of the federal Voting Rights Act, in a decision they feared could make it easier for states to shut people out of the voting booth. Again and again on Wednesday, in tweets and Facebook posts that sounded twin notes of celebration and sorrow, Jan Ostrom saw the same theme: “Don’t forget what happened the day before.” Ostrom, carrying a sign that proclaimed “our love is here to stay,” was at the courthouse with her wife, Alexandra Wineland. They were the second couple married in Humboldt back in 2008, during the last brief window when gay marriage was legal here. Now, just a week past their fifth anniversary, they were reveling in the sunshine and taking a moment to reflect

on all that the court has done in the past few days. “It’s on our minds because oppressed people are oppressed,” Ostrom said of the voting rights decision. “It’s very depressing that my country would want to do this.” Still, said Amy Granfield, who had driven down from Kneeland with her partner to join the rally, other times have looked bleak too, and people have muddled through, claiming what victories they can. Wednesday evening, outside the courthouse in Eureka and at the Arcata Plaza, was for the victories. At the celebration in Arcata, Cheryl Rau said she was not sure that the Supreme Court would rule in favor of marriage rights for all. “It was hard to read, especially after the way the Voting Rights Act went.” Either way, though, the rally would’ve been held on the Arcata Plaza. “We were going to come whether it was good news or bad news,” she said. Rau has been with her partner, Patricia McCutcheon, for 28 years. At one point, McCutcheon got on the rudimentary sound system that was set up at the north end of the plaza and recited a poem, “Unsanctioned Epithalamium.” She added the caveat that it was now out of date. An epithalamium is a poem about marriage. Around 70 people had gathered on the plaza. Some had rainbow flags. Some had signs. When there wasn’t a speaker on the mic, there were chants (“straight, gay, black, white, marriage is a civil right”) and songs (“For What’s It’s Worth,” by Buffalo Springfield). Ten-year-old Abby HastingsTharp came down from Salem, Ore., with her two brothers and mother to celebrate the victory. She’s been a gay-rights activist since she was 4 years old, when she led a march across the Golden Gate Bridge. “I think it’s wrong that my moms aren’t allowed to get married,” she said. Although marriages between same-sex couples still aren’t recognized in Oregon, today’s ruling brought a new hope, and a

new legitimacy, for California couples, Jerryl Lynn Rubin said. “The clean, pure law of the land says you’re equal,” she said. “Law comes first, and then prejudice gets erased.” Soon marriages between gay couples will become normalized, she said. “There are people who are not going to remember before this day.” It is historic, she said. “It’s a new day.” l


Before You Give Someone Your Heart By Jennifer Savage 1. Your heart has value. Only share it with people who are, at the very least, kind, funny and honest. Those are non-negotiable. Do not place your heart in the hands of anyone who delights in embarrassing you, treats you as if you are undeserving of love or otherwise leaves you feeling worse about yourself. 2. We’re all allowed some insecurities. When you give someone your heart, you might discover you have ones you didn’t know about. You might notice the ones you thought you had under control rearing up like snakes intent on poisoning your relationship. You might need to, as they say, do a little work on yourself. Most of our hearts have been damaged before, but try to hand yours over somewhat repaired instead of still bleeding. Take measure: Did you grow

up feeling loved, protected and as if your home was a place of joy? Or did you flee to Humboldt to nurse your wounds? Are you comfortable taking yourself out to ATL for a Sunday evening movie? When’s the last time you went to the beach alone? Do you constantly compare yourself to others and believe you’re lacking? Do you find yourself repeating mistakes because your heart stays on the same path despite your brain’s pleas to go the other way? Are you able to walk into Good Relations and pick out a new best friend without getting the shakes? You don’t have to be perfect! But the more whole you can be before trusting your happiness to another, the healthier for both of you. We pick better people when we feel good about ourselves.

3. Trust your friends. If their instincts are to protect you from pain, listen. If the new person in your life insists you leave the people who’ve known and loved you for years, run. For example: You’re happy-houring at Oberon with your pals and your date walks into the room. Does your heart soar or sink? If a grin appears on your face before you could even think to smile, life is how it should be. If your neck tenses up and you find yourself cataloging possible offenses, you’ve placed your heart with someone who doesn’t deserve it. Take it back firmly and walk away. 4. Knowing that the health of your heart depends on another is scary. You might find yourself more attuned to perceived threats than usual. You might overreact. Rare is the person in love who hasn’t done something stupid because of it. Minimize the damage and potential lasting embarrassment by having any angry/sad/accusatory conversations in person or talking on the phone. Facebook and texts last long after the emotional rush has worn off. (Confession: I have so regretted getting into an argument with a friend via FB messages, that I snuck onto the computer and deleted our entire conversation. Which is also a shitty thing to do. We should own our words, but it’s easier when they exist only in the actual atmosphere, not the virtual one.) Plus, we live in a small town — keeping drama private is hard enough. Go public and be defined as that crazy person

forever. Point being, when you find yourself panicked or enraged, vent to a friend or a very private diary or journal. Spew forth. Write furiously. Then take about 18 zillion deep breaths, muster your maturity and have that tough talk like a grown-up. 5. Odds are, you’ll get hurt. It happens. (See: Entire history of art, music, storytelling, literature, etc.) Kind people have cruel moments. Funny people twist comedy into criticism. Honest people trip up. Smart people make mistakes. All you can do is your best. BONUS: You’ve entrusted your heart to someone and so far, so good. So good, in fact, that you’re considering a domestic arrangement — marriage, maybe, or cohabitation. Congratulations. But know this: Love is not enough. You have to take a hard look at long-term expectations and practical day-today functioning. Are you a stuff person and he’s a space person? Do you put in a 60-hour work week while she lies on the couch reading Savage Henry from cover to cover? Are you taking out direct deposit advances because you want a new dress while he wears shoes until his feet slide out the holes? Do you dream of storming Manhattan someday and she dreams of homesteading in Petrolia? Are you unenthused about monogamy and your partner counting on it? Even initially charming differences easily become fodder for divorce. Avoid future headaches and heartache by sorting all this stuff out beforehand. l • North Coast Journal • Thursday, July 4, 2013

Trees, Please! By Barry Evans


or a destination whose “Heart of the Redwood Coast” image is promoted as a tourist magnet, Eureka itself may seem like a bit of a letdown. Visitors used to the leafy streets of San Diego, Sacramento or Palo Alto, for instance, might find our mostly sparse and immature crop of sidewalk trees out of kilter with our arboreal reputation. However, with nearly 2,000 trees owned and maintained by the city, plus hundreds more sidewalk trees maintained by property owners, Eureka is ahead of most other comparably sized Californian cities. And in the cities mentioned, electric utilities’ policies of encouraging shade trees to reduce air conditioner use has been a major factor. Reduced energy use is by no means the only benefit provided by urban trees. Trees can: Calm traffic, turning transportation corridors into avenues. A study in Texas, published in 2006, showed a 46 percent decrease in urban arterial crash rates following tree planting. Reduce air pollution by trapping particulates (dust, ash, pollen and smoke) and harmful gases such as ozone, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides. In addition, trees absorb carbon dioxide and emit oxygen through photosynthesis. Fight the atmospheric greenhouse effect by removing the carbon from carbon dioxide and storing it as cellulose in their trunks. On average, healthy urban trees store about 13 pounds of carbon annually. Reduce stormwater pollutants that would otherwise flow into lakes or oceans by absorbing surface runoff and purifying pollutants that come into contact with tree roots. Increase economic stability by attract-

ing visitors to shady downtown streets, encouraging them to linger and shop longer than they would have otherwise. Plus, incidents of street and property crime are consistently lower in tree-lined areas compared to barren streets, according to two studies published in Landscape and Urban Planning and Environment and Behavior. Reduce noise pollution by absorbing traffic sounds. Following the adoption of a City Council motion to establish Eureka as a “tree-lined city” in 2005, two groups — Redwood Community Action Agency and Keep Eureka Beautiful — have been working with the city to plant sidewalk trees. Both groups are supported by grants from the state and private foundations. One focuses on low-income areas, and the other plants trees all over Eureka. The city supports the groups by cutting the concrete (charging on a time-and-materials basis) and waiving permit fees, while Pierson’s Nursery provides trees to the groups at cost. The organization I belong to, Keep Eureka Beautiful, has planted nearly 600 trees on behalf of homeowners, who pay a nominal cost to have the group’s volunteers plant a tree (or trees) next to their property. Homeowners are also responsibility for maintenance and liability. Trees have been around since the first animals emerged from Earth’s oceans 300 million years ago, and now they offer so much while asking so little. Thanks to the volunteer groups and an enlightened city policy, the goal of tree-lined streets throughout Eureka is slowly coming to fruition. And we’ll all be the healthier for it. ● Barry Evans ( believes the ancient adage “plant a tree, go to heaven.”

“Farewell” at Sewell Gallery By Ken Weiderman


ven if you’ve never laid eyes on one of Michael Guerriero’s distinctive serigraphs, you have likely seen one of the first works he created after moving here in 1977. Fresh out of grad school in Kalamazoo, Mich., Guerriero put his graphic design skills to use offering signpainting services to Old Town businesses. Up against other newcomers like Duane Flatmo, Guerriero convinced several shops to take his offer. Jim Dunn’s Cosmopolitan, a faded gray sign for a historic watering hole, is the only remaining venture from those days, and it’s great fun to look back 36 years and witness the early efforts of one of Humboldt County’s premier serigraphers. An affable, tall man with silver splinters in his short-cropped, curly hair, Michael Guerriero has a quick laugh and a radiant smile. He has served as a member of the Bridgeville School Board and conducted art workshops with local kids about the Eel River salmon run (“Salmon Celebration,” April 5, 2012). Guerriero also represented Humboldt County for a decade by designing and building the county’s State Fair exhibits. With the help of many, including Mark McCullough (Mr. Fish), Libby Maynard, Jim McVicker, Stock Schlueter and Eric Hollenbeck (from Blue Ox Millworks) the exhibits won two Best of Show titles along with a plethora of other accolades (“Putting a Face on Humboldt,” August, 1997). Of course, Guerriero is probably best known for his luscious landscapes. An early visit to screen printer John Wesa’s studio gave him the courage to jump into screen printing,

something that he’d been interested in since high school. Guerriero built himself a home studio, a press and some frames, and got down to some serious serigraphy. So what’s the difference between screen printing, silk screening and serigraphy? Essentially nothing. They all involve the construction of an image by pressing ink through a screen onto a substrate, usually a piece of paper or fabric. The process originated in China a thousand years ago, but now that most screens are polyester instead of silk, the most commonly used terms are screen printing and serigraphy. The term serigraphy was coined in the early 20th century as a way for artists to distinguish their work from the onslaught of mass-produced screen printed goods that were just becoming available. While a commercial screen printer will cut corners to keep costs down, a serigrapher uses all the tricks of the trade to produce a refined aesthetic. It might not be the most efficient way of working, Guerriero says with a laugh, but the results are worth it. Guerriero usually begins with a photograph that balances larger abstract shapes and realistic natural elements. Then using Photoshop he creates a “cartoon,” or a filtered rendition of the photo somewhat akin to a black and white line drawing. This goes below a layer of glass, on top of which he begins painting a series of screens. Each screen is like a stencil, blocking off some areas of the print while allowing other areas to receive the ink.

Working from a few dozen containers of variously hued yellows, blues and reds, Guerriero mixes the background colors first. These tones are pulled from his initial photograph, but as the print advances the photo becomes irrelevant as Guerriero blends custom colors to harmonize into a final print. For many of the works as many as 15 stencils, or frames, are used to layer color after color on top of one another. During the prints’ progression, the stencils get smaller and smaller to lend increasingly detailed features to the more expansive layers of color below. Viewers who look closely at each print will notice lingering details, sometimes just a watery glint or an angled shaft of ashen rain that indicates how carefully Guerriero has planned out his prints. Each of these works embodies a calculated process from start to finish. These are not paintings that take on a life of their own as they are painted, but rather a meticulous journey through successive layers of color. Indeed, Guerriero hopes his viewers will “look beyond the landscape they are seeing [for] the brush marks, the hand that is applied and the way the overlapping aspects of the print interact.” With that in mind, these serigraphs truly are “more than just an attempt to represent the landscape.” A close examination of the prints highlights the intricate layers that comprise each print, but pull back a few steps and the composition reveals the worldly, observant sense of design Guerriero possesses. Like many other serigraph artists, Guerriero harnesses

the power of strong graphic elements in order to make the most of his medium. Rocks rise up like monoliths, watersheds recede, beaches swoon and clouds reveal the sky’s majesty. One print, titled “West of Yachats,” offers dark lavenders, seaweed greens, and rough aquamarines drifting below milky salmons, faded oranges and husky yellows. Some of the shapes are sharp with pinpoint details. Others have edges bleeding delicately into receding layers. The soft, dappled effects of Guerriero’s color combinations seem to erase the stencil edges, bordering on a watercolor effect. Michael Guerriero moves to Yachats, Oregon this month. In his new seaside village he has bought a few parcels to live in and build on with the assistance of his architect son. Along with furthering his portfolio with new images of the Oregon coast, Guerriero also plans to continue his recent foray into acrylic painting. A reception for his show “Farewell” will be held at the Sewell Gallery Fine Arts from 6-9pm on July 6 for Arts! Alive. The Sewell features only Humboldt County artists, so this may be your last chance to see a comprehensive local show of his work. ● Ken Weiderman also encourages printmaking enthusiasts to visit Drrrrty,a show by the Giant Squid Printmakers Collective at Ink People’s Brenda Tuxford gallery during Saturday’s Arts!

You don’t have to travel to Thailand or Japan to see Susan Mayclin Stephenson’s paintings, although you could if you wanted to. Her art hangs in galleries all over the world, and now it’s hanging in the Lighthouse Grill in Trinidad. Stephenson has studied the work of the impressionist and post-impressionist masters. She uses those techniques to paint portraits, landscapes and scenes from her travels.

Independence Day Traditions By Travis Turner


he Fourth of July holiday weekend has a bit of tradition surrounding it and should send your favorite memories tumbling down the sensory chute and straight into your frontal lobe. I think of my first foray into lip-on-lip action — the girl I kissed on a family campout. My family camped at the same spot every year, but she never came back. Humboldt County has its own great Fourth of July weekend traditions, too. If you’re not out at a music festival, camping out looking for that girl who got away or lazily floating down the Eel River, check out a few them. The Jim Lahman Band, Redwood Dixieland Gators, Doug Fir & the 2x4s and the John David Young Trio will all be playing on the Old Town Square stage, smack in the middle of Eureka’s five-cityblock Fourth of July Extravaganza. Just down the street at Second and C, you can catch Fogliner, Lyndsey Battle, the M Notes and even more of the Redwood Dixieland Gators on the stage in front of Mantova’s Two Street Music. Keep walking and the Hot Rods Band will be playing at the foot of C Street from 5pm–9 p.m. as

part of the summer concert series. The Hot Rods are a high-energy oldies show joanne rand. photo by Michele Anne Louise Cohen. band from the San Francisco Bay Area, pumping out classic hits from the ’50s curtain rises at 8 p.m. and ’60s.

On Sunday, Allison Miller and Boom Tic Boom pound their way into the Arcata Playhouse at 8 p.m. Miller has played drums for everyone from Natalie Merchant to Ani DiFranco, and the group is on tour promoting their newly dropped No Morphine, No Lillies album. Miller stands alongside Myra Melford on piano, Jenny Scheinman on violin and Todd Sickafoose on bass, to play some very accessible progressive jazz. Pay specific attention to Melford as she floats and coaxes sound from her piano keeping the Miller-produced numbers tight, yet vibrant. Another Humboldt tradition is Monday night’s Rude Lion Sound funky reggae party at Ocean Grove in Trinidad. This reggae rager will leave you feeling irie and most likely hungry. Bring pudding packs, cherry limeade and goldfish crackers for the ride home.  Happy Independence Day, Humboldt. • North Coast Journal • Thursday, July 4, 2013

If we hadn’t thrown off the shackles of British tyranny, there’d be butter on all our sandwiches, sweaters would be jumpers, The Office would have ended ages ago and we’d have nothing to do on the Fourth of July. Lucky for us, we get to commemorate breaking up with the monarchy (we did it in a letter — was that bad?) and celebrate life, liberty and the pursuit of tasty street food. Fortuna is not waiting. On Wednesday, July 3, the town will host a picnic, with fire engine, fireworks, potato sack races and a tug of war. From 5:30-10:30 p.m. in Newburg Park, folks will be lining up for tri-tip or chicken plates ($10) and hot dog plates for kids ($5). Go easy on the barbecue if you’re planning on entering the pie-eating contest at 7 p.m., and maybe leave the bouncy house for the kids. Fireworks with oohs and ahs start after dark. Eureka Main Street knows how to throw a shindig.


Starting at 10 a.m. on the Fourth, more than 100 vendors will be hawking crafts and goodies all over Old Town. Classic cars will be on display along with a fire truck, and you can get down to live music from two different stages. Your chance to shop, mingle and eat something on a stick goes until 5 p.m. Then come back at 10 p.m. for fireworks over Humboldt Bay. If you’ve recovered from the Oyster Festival, Arcata’s 4th of July Jubilee is going down on the plaza from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Look, Ma — no fence! Just loads of food, arts and crafts and live music so everyone can party like it’s 1776. Grab a blanket and stake out a spot, then take the little ones over to the Kid Zone, where they can do some spin-art, get their faces painted and check out the FreeLove Sideshow tent. Over in Ferndale the townsfolk are kicking off the celebration with free fire truck rides at 10 a.m. and a parade at noon. Ferndale Rotary is hosting an old-fashioned picnic at 1 p.m. with burgers or veggie burgers ($6) and hot dogs ($5) with sides and ice cream. Pick up tickets and catch Ferndale Repertory’s “Celebrate America” musical revue at 3 p.m. Then Paul Revere it over to the fairgrounds for a kiddie bounce house, food vendors and Bear River Casino’s fireworks show at 9:30 p.m. And that is how we roll in the colonies. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

Movies Night at the Library “Have you seen the movie?” “The book was better.” Book lovers and film buffs: Let’s not fight. Lay down your arms, climb out of the trenches and hail one another as equals. On July 9, the Eureka branch of the Humboldt County Library kicks off its free Blu Tuesdays film series with a month of classic movies based on books. Each Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., you can watch films on the library’s fancy new Blu-ray set-up and stay for a discussion with the week’s host. Should be nearly as much fun as all those times you said you were going to the library. Not every film adaptation is gold (see Dr. Seuss spinning like a dervish in his grave), but this line-up is solid. Plus, you won’t need those annoying 3-D glasses for these summer movies. On July 9, the series starts with John Ford’s western drama Stagecoach, hosted by Philip Wright. Sweeping landscapes, Indian attacks, it’s a genre icon based on Ernest Haycox’s story “The Stage to Lordsburg.” The next Tuesday, July 16, saunter over for Scarlet Street, based on Georges de La Fouchardière’s La Chienne. Fritz Lang directed this film noir in which Edward G. Robinson is lured into intrigue and danger by a prostitute. Jan Ostrom will host. July 23, Black Narcissus, based on the Rumer Godden novel, is in bloom. Brits Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger directed this tale of shenanigans in a Himalayan nunnery. Finally, wind things up on July 30 with Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, which is based on a Daphne du Maurier book. Michael Logan hosts this thriller set in picturesque Bodega Bay, where star Tippi Hendren is swarmed by the original angry birds. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

book The Power of Habit Charles Duhigg Random House Habit is the basic substrate of our lives, so basic that its influence is easy to ignore. The Power of Habit tries to peek behind the curtain and reveal the mechanisms of habit — so that readers can grab the levers for themselves and take control. The book begins with a story of someone who has done just that, replacing destructive habits, like drinking and smoking, with productive ones, like exercise. The question is: How? Answering that question involves understanding many things: how crises turn ossified routines malleable, how social networks dampen or amplify habits, and how some keystone habits (regular exercise, for example) can cause a chain reaction that makes other habits easier to adopt. Charles Duhigg is a New York Times business writer and, since publishing The Power of Habit in 2012, he has won a shared Pulitzer for the newspaper’s series of articles about Apple. Although his book’s three sections discuss habits at individual, organizational and societal levels, Duhigg’s business background is apparent throughout. The examples he draws from business and his insights on organizational habits are the book’s most robust and engaging. Corporations, themselves simply collections of social habits, are well aware of the power of habit — and not just for engineering their own corporate cultures. The vast cosmos of data compiled on the American consumer’s habits is staggering and not a little disturbing. This information is bought, sold or traded for marketplace advantage. What companies like Target can do with that data is downright creepy. Complex data analysis, for example, lets Target guess with surprising accuracy whether a woman might be pregnant and, if so, when her due date might be. Of course, Target has discovered that its customers find these predictive abilities to be just as unsettling as they sound. So the store has learned to camouflage its targeted approach. When Target believes a woman is probably pregnant, based on items she has already purchased, it will send her a personalized set of coupons. But the items the store wants her to buy — baby wipes, formula, a stroller — will be sandwiched between other items so that the mailer’s contents appear arbitrary. DJs use what we know about habit in a different way, to habituate audiences to the sounds of new and unfamiliar — and thus displeasing — songs. OutKast’s “Hey Ya”? Test audiences hated it. Only months of careful sandwiching between well-loved hits inured and eventually endeared audiences to the song. With so many organizations already paying attention to our habits and devising methods to engineer them, perhaps it’s time we did the same. — Anthony Correale

Hot Cops

Bullock and McCarthy kick criminals square in the funny bone By Dev Richards


THE HEAT. I’m sorry I doubted you, Paul Feig. During every preview for The Heat, the Bridesmaids director’s sophomore feature, I moaned and groaned, complaining about Sandra Bullock playing yet another character who balances her femininity with her professionalism, as she’s done in nearly every movie since Miss Congeniality. “It could be OK; it is Paul Feig,” said my more optimistic friends. Still, I entered the theater with a brain full of preconceptions. Within minutes of the opening credits I was eating my own words. The Heat is by no means a groundbreaking comedy, nor is it destined to be a classic. But it outshines nearly every other comedy of 2013 so far (especially you, The Hangover Part III). Feig teamed with up-and-coming writer Katie Dippold (TV’s Parks and Recreation) to give the buddy-cop template a female twist. It’s a little bit Cagney & Lacey and alotta bit The Odd Couple, and the combination works well. Straight-laced FBI Agent Ashburn (Bullock) has her eye on a promotion, while crass Boston Police Detective Mullins (Melissa McCarthy, Bridesmaids’ scenestealer) wants to clean up the streets, no matter the cost. Together they must take down a drug lord who’s constantly evading the clutches of the law. Eventually, the two polar opposites manage to combine their contradictory styles and make the collar. It’s an old plot, but the jokes are fresh.


The long legs of the law: Bullock and McCarthy star in The Heat.

The Heat is not without some problematic gender role messages (you mean she’s a lady and a badass cop?!), but Dippold toys with the concepts with sidesplitting dexterity. It’s not not sexist, but it satirizes the stereotypes it employs. The success of The Heat’s humor can largely be attributed to the parade of cameos, which run the gamut from SNL legend Jane Curtin to newer comedic faces such as Kaitlin Olson (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia). Though McCarthy is hilarious, she and Bullock couldn’t have pulled off this comedy without the help of a huge supporting cast. The list of successful female comedy writers has been too short for too long. The Heat will likely not be the last thing we see from Dippold, and for that I’m grateful. R. 117m. WHITE HOUSE DOWN. Director, producer and sometimes writer Roland Emmerich knows a thing or two about saving the world — or saving the part that Hollywood deems worth saving (‘Merica!). In 1996 he stole the hearts and minds of 12-year-olds everywhere with Independence Day. Then his career took a nose dive. (That Godzilla re-make? Unforgivable.) I used to wonder why he went downhill so quickly; how did the guy who made Stargate go on to make crap like 2012 and 10,000 BC? One day I realized Emmerich’s work didn’t get worse; I just got older. Kids don’t need action films to be compelling or well-written. They just need jokes, explosions and victory. As an adult, I know Hollywood can do better (e.g. Die Hard, Red and just about every Tarantino film). Emmerich’s latest, penned by James

Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man), is a feeble attempt at Hollywood blockbusterdom. White House Down follows a tired action-movie formula. Policeman John Cale (Channing Tatum) is a divorced father trying desperately to land his dream job and win the love of his pre-teen daughter, but no one will give him a chance to prove himself. He dreams of working with the Secret Service, but he’s too much of a loose cannon. No one seems to recognize his unpolished potential. When a terrorist group invades the White House, killing hundreds of people and quickly eroding the state of the nation, Cale’s unorthodox and ridiculously unrealistic methods are the only thing that can save the day. He’ll save the president, uncover a government conspiracy and win the respect of his daughter in one fell swoop. The clichéd plot could be forgiven if it was dressed up a little — if the dialogue was punchier or the explosions more awe-inspiring. But Emmerich and Vanderbilt don’t serve up any tasty extras. The dialogue is corny, the jokes are groaners and the action scenes overuse slo-mo as if it’s some dazzling new technique. Action movies can get away with being implausible if they make you care about the characters. But even with a talented cast that includes Jamie Foxx, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Richard Jenkins, I gave no shits about anyone. The characters in White House Down, like the plot, are as threadbare as Tatum’s tattered tank top. PG13. 131m.
