Meet our staff “I have worked at Murphy’s off and on for about four years,” says Kyle, sitting outside at the café tables in front of the Sunny Brae Murphy’s Market. “I started during my senior year in high school before I moved to Chico. Since then, I have lived in Los Angeles and San Jose with a high paying job selling DirecTV. But I was working six days a week and commuting three hours a day! So I called Murphy’s and asked if they still had a job for me and moved back home.” “It is slower here and I have days off to go

to Willow Creek where the family has a cabin. I can take my dog to the river. The beach is great, too, and so are the Giants!” “My Portuguese family has lots of aunts, uncles and cousins and, of course, my mom, dad and my grandparents. My dad and uncles coach baseball and I like to help out at the tournaments. I chalk the ﬁeld and baselines and such, because anything and everything is fun with baseball.” “Part of the family likes staying on the Rogue
River and have been whitewater rafting there for 45 years.” “It’s nice to work at Murphy’s. I get to see friends and family, my uncle Carlos is the Sunny Brae store manager, and get know the customers, who are just great. So far I have worked at four of the markets: Sunny Brae, Cutten, Glendale and Trinidad.” There’s another one, too, Westwood Murphy’s in Arcata. Which Murphy’s is closest to your house?

Why Object? Editor: Same-sex marriage? (“Star-Spangled Rainbow,” July 4.) What kind of mental images does this concept provoke? A majority of California voters viewed this union in a negative way as they passed Proposition 8. My question is why? Granted, there are people who object to any marriage that does not involve a WASP couple. For example: mixed race couples, mixed faith couples, mixed nationality couples, age difference couples, and polygamy unions have all raised somebody’s hackles. Being a byproduct of a broken home which consisted of a man and woman, and knowing just how many broken homes and divorces result in a loveless union between heterosexuals, on what grounds do people stand in objecting to a union (OK, a marriage) between two adult people who love, respect and care for one another regardless of their gender? Ah! Perhaps it’s the word sex that gets people to shake their heads. While intercourse, in whatever manner is chosen, is a factor in a relationship, it’s far from the most important element, in my opinion. Same-gender marriage? I can live with that, as long as there’s no attempt to get me to change my mind regarding the joys of my 40-plus-year hetero-gender marriage. Arthur Jones, Blue Lake
Mission Not Accomplished
4 North Coast Journal • Thursday, July 11, 2013 • northcoastjournal.com
Editor: I write to note that the article “Strawberry Rock: Mission Accomplished?” (July 4) fails to take the necessary hard look at the environmental and economic costs associated with the ongoing clear-cut industrial forestry operations of Green Diamond Resource Company (ex-Simpson). In this sense the NCJ failed in its mission to fully inform our community about a crucial local issue. As the executive director of the Environmental Protection Information Center (EPIC), I can say that the aspiration of activists to protect Strawberry Rock, and the supposed conflict with the Yurok over their aspirations, is not the only controversy surrounding a company that insists on clear-cut logging immature redwood trees to manufacture an inferior wood product. Why would it be that the Yurok Tribal Council is not voicing public concern about the damage that Green Diamond/
The Fungus A source of nourishment, appeasing hunger primal as the smell of damp earth. A charming sight, toadstools like houses of mice in children’s movies. A parasite, leeching the life out of frogs, and bats, and whales. An abstract sculpture, impossible to understand. — Amy Fontaine
Simpson has done, and continues to do, to the integrity of the redwood temperate rainforest ecosystem, an ecosystem gravely threatened by climate change and ongoing intensive industrial exploitation? Why is it that the tribal council is “satisfied with Green Diamond’s plans”? Are there financial and political interests that link the tribe to the company that influence these dynamics? Why would the NCJ not ask that question of the tribe? It is time for a cover story at the NCJ exploring the controversies surrounding Green Diamond. From Strawberry Rock, to the proposed clear cut logging near the Headwaters Forest Reserve in Elk River, to the national controversy around the recent and highly questionable award of Forest Stewardship Council certification to its unsustainable clear-cuts. These issues, and others, merit full investigation. Once the NCJ can commit to investigating and publishing the story behind Green Diamond “greenwash,” our diverse community will be better prepared to contribute to the restoration of the globally unique, irreplaceable, and, dare I say, sacred redwood temperate rainforest.

Editor: I first met Michael Guerriero in 1980 (“Artbeat,” July 4). My wife, Zula Belle, had arranged for him to show his serigraphs to several of our friends at our home in Trinidad. As the reception was winding down Zula Belle told me we were buying the Trinidad Clam Beach picture. This was a view from northbound 101 where the highway drops down in front of the bluff giving an overview of Clam Beach with Trinidad Head in the distance. It’s a spectacular view that I saw every workday driving home from HSU. My problem was that the waves breaking on Clam Beach didn’t look right. We bought the picture anyway. The next day the question was what should we do with this relatively large piece of work? About a year before, a family member had given us a seascape done in oils that we had hung above our continued on next page
Editor: Nice column by Barry Evans about the importance of leafy greens to our streets but I think he buried the lead by not mentioning the arbor-challenged, concrete hazard called Broadway/Fifth. Every time I’m forced onto this decaying monstrosity or have to cross it I feel the need for either a shower or better insurance. Beautifying our main drag from the
Hammer to the safety zone (and north Fourth Street while you’re at it) should be one of the highest priorities of our city planning department. Beautifying doesn’t only refer to more trees, it includes the removal of some of our seedier structures such as the former motels now used as “notels.” How about replacing them with green areas or artist and historical sanctuaries to show off our local culture to freshly arriving guests? Maybe if the board all stayed a night in that new Holiday Inn Express on Wabash (the little box by the big box) they’d be able to figure it out. It’s called “first impressions” gang. An economic goldmine and a sense of pride for this city awaits. Don’t let Detroit beat us to it. Jon Exley, Eureka
Coronado, an island city across the bridge from San Diego. Originally there were few, if any, trees on the island of Coronado. Today, when you drive across the bridge and look down on the city, one of the things you notice is the abundance of trees. During the six years I lived there, I served on the Coronado Street Tree Committee. We organized tree plantings each year, much like the groups are doing in Eureka. Our committee also developed a Street Tree Ordinance that was adopted by the City Council. One of the ordinance provisions disallowed the practice of “topping” trees in Coronado. The reason for this provision is that topping of trees is an extremely damaging practice. Just look at the row of cypress trees behind the Animal Shelter near the Arcata airport, the pine trees along Central Avenue on the east side of the airport, the cypress tree in front of Tony’s restaurant on the west side of Highway 101 by Janes Road, and the trees in the McKinleyville Burger King parking lot. These are just a few examples of local trees that have been ruined by topping. Kudos to those organizations in Eureka that are helping to make it a more attractive and livable place by planting trees, but I encourage the planting of appropriate trees in the space available for them to grow. This will eliminate the need for topping as these trees reach maturity. Stan Binnie, Trinidad

fireplace. I took the painting down and replaced it with Michael’s work. It was as if a light had gone on in our living room. Three weeks later, I was driving home from work and, as usual, looked out to enjoy the view over Clam Beach to Trinidad. And there were Michael’s waves breaking on the beach! There is something about good art teaching us to see things more clearly. We have acquired several of Michael’s serigraphs since 1980. One of my favorites is a view from Table Bluff Road looking west with the Eel River bottom on the left and Table Bluff and some big cypress trees on the right. Above, a pinkish cloud, which looks like a soft thunderbolt, stretches diagonally across the sky. Table Bluff is one of our favorite rides and the setting of the picture is very familiar. I doubt that I will ever see a real pinkish cloud that looks like a thunderbolt, but this time, I’m willing to take Michael’s word for it. Frank Jewett, Eureka
Marimba Bummer Editor: After the glowing article on the marimba festival (“Marimba!” June 27), we made a point of showing up when the doors opened for Ms. Zeltsman’s concert at 7:15 on Friday. A milling crowd around the box office and a lot of grumbling greeted us — the venue was sold out; in fact it had been sold out before the doors opened. Meanwhile, folks with tickets (advance tickets were not available; where would people have bought them?) walked past us and inside. The mood was one of frustration and anger. Clearly some of the audience were more equal than others. This is shameful behavior and reflects badly on the festival organization, and I suspect, on the entitled/proprietary attitude of Marimba One. It is a disservice to everyone involved. Given the size of
the two venues, and the policy of private distribution of tickets, we are skipping the rest of the event. Barbara Bennett, McKinleyville
What Rural Consensus? Editor: Mary Carr writes (“Mailbox,” July 4) that the supes properly “updated” the guiding principles of the General Plan by cutting out any language supporting “increas[ed] restrictions on resource land subdivisions,” “developing affordable housing,” or “discouraging low-density residential conversion of resource lands,” etc. She claims that language — originally added in 2004 to reflect the consensus view that Humboldt County doesn’t want and can’t afford unchecked rural development — is outdated in light of unspecified “additional input that came in after 2004.” She claims that input shows that “rural people” support unrestricted rural development, but just couldn’t attend the “poorly advertised” GPU meetings back then. Ms. Carr makes a very weak, if not disingenuous, case. That case rests entirely on the claim that the guiding principles had to be changed because rural people support unrestricted rural development, but Ms. Carr doesn’t point to any evidence to support that claim. Should we simply assume the rural population’s views are identical to the ones in the glossy brochures prepared by Estelle’s Fennell’s patron Lee Ulansey? Besides, the great bulk of the county’s population is composed of “urban people” — don’t their views count? And moreover, why would rural people support development that would inevitably degrade their rural lifestyles? Let’s be honest, no one supports mak-
ing it easier and cheaper to build houses in rural areas except people who would profit from building them, because it doesn’t benefit anyone else. And it was people who would profit from building those houses who created and funded the HumCPR, and paid for Bohn and Fennel to get on the Board. The guiding principles were “updated” because those people wanted it to happen, not for any other reason. The suggestion that “rural people” simply support rural development for some unspecified reason (because they love having their roads clogged by traffic, and their open spaces filled with McMansions?) is specious. Bill Hassler, Mckinleyville
KEET Bard Defends Editor: The Damsel Distress’d: (in response to “Inside KEET,” June 27, from a KEET enployee.) Why this thrust of the envenom’d lance? An uncomfortable torque of the underpants? Would a knight of good renown Kick a man when he is down? When jousting in the local lists, Some decided hits — and some he missed. I scorn the chalice of Kool-Aid, So heed the words of this withered maid: We work so that others get enjoyment From entertainment. Our employment Harms no one — and indeed invests In local subjects and interests. So I implore you, please eschew This tempest in a teacup brew’d. If sometimes bitter, then sometimes sweet. If ’tis trusty, ’tis worthy, and if worthy, ’tis KEET. Charity Grella, Eureka l

Straightening the Hairpins
Highway 299 remake will create a smoother, faster ride — eventually By J. Daniel Fernandez email@example.com
ne of the best ways to spend a summer day is on a drive from Arcata to Redding via State Route 299. Travelers are likely to see birds of prey circle overhead, as small cumulus clouds drag across a blinding blue sky, and a flurry of wildflowers, redwoods and oaks rush by on either side. The 140-mile route is designated as a state scenic highway. But for all its beauty, highway 299’s hairpin turns, sporadic lack of shoulder lanes and winter ice and snow make it one of the most dangerous roads in California. The 7½-mile stretch just west of the Trinity-Shasta county line accounted
for 223 car accidents from 2005 to 2009, according to Trisha Coder, public information officer for Caltrans District 2. “That’s a lot of accidents,” she said in a phone interview. “That’s why the Buckhorn Grade Improvement Project was started as a safety project.” The project calls for Caltrans to reconstruct 9.6 miles of State Route 299, from two miles west of the Trinity-Shasta county line to Crystal Creek Road, about 20 miles outside of Redding. “[Caltrans] is cutting into mountains and moving roads,” Coder said. “It’s pretty amazing when you think about it.” The work started in 2009, and by the
8 North Coast Journal • Thursday, July 11, 2013 • northcoastjournal.com
time it’s done in 2017, crews will have straightened 18 hairpin turns, widened shoulders and added truck passing and climbing lanes for a faster and safer drive. First, though, will come long waits, this summer and the next three summers, until the $60 million road construction is completed. CalTrans estimates the current average wait time is about 30 minutes, but suggests travelers allow for delays of up to an hour. From start to finish, Caltrans crews will have moved at least 2.7 million cubic yards of earth, according to current construction plans. In comparison, the Hoover Dam contains 3.25 million cubic yards of concrete, according to the Department of Interior’s website. While the road work may have started as a safety project, as Coder says, it also aims to make the road usable for larger semi-trucks, those longer than 48 feet. Now that these bigger trucks have become more common, regions that can’t be reached by them are at an economic disadvantage, according to a Caltrans Environmental Impact Report prepared for the Buckhorn Grade Project. The report cited one economic study that estimated businesses and residents pay about 10 percent to 15 percent more for goods when the biggest trucks can’t get through. Those trucks should be able to navigate the new 299, once it is fully reconstructed and is certified for them, according to Caltrans. If that rings a bell for people who have followed the Highway 101 controversies
over roadwork in Richardson Grove and around Willits, it’s because those projects, too, aim to make passage by larger trucks possible. Gary Hughes, executive director of the Environmental Protection Information Center in Arcata, said that once the Highway 299 work is done, it would provide “the fastest, most direct route for goods from Humboldt County to national markets.” For that reason, he said, Caltrans should reassess the need to widen and straighten Highway 101 for larger trucks. When all said and done, Humboldt County will have contributed $5.6 million of the $60 million price tag for the Buckhorn Pass improvements, according to Marcella Clem, executive director of the Humboldt County Association of Governments. Clem said opening State Route 299 to bigger trucks will help the economy here. “We’re very thankful to District 2 for funding the majority of the project,” she said. The improvements are likely to have some costs of their own, though. As bigger trucks reach Humboldt County, they could cause additional wear and tear on streets in Eureka that were not originally built to sustain the heavier loads, according to a Humboldt County Association of Governments planning report. But despite any extra road wear, Tonya Walker, travel ambassador for the Arcata Chamber of Commerce, couldn’t be happier about the road improvements. Not because of any business benefits to the community, but rather, because she misses her grandparents. “My family doesn’t come to too many games anymore,” said Walker, who is a native of Redding and center-fielder on Humboldt State’s softball team. “It’s
dangerous, especially when it rains.” Her grandparents found it increasingly difficult to travel back and forth over the stomach-churning curves of 299 to watch her during playoffs last season. And while other students are back home with their families during the summer, Walker stays behind to work. “I don’t get to go home often, so I’m glad they’re making [State Route 299] straighter,” she said. l

Hunger Strike Resumes
This morning at 11, prisoners at Pelican Bay State Prison began their third hunger strike in the past two years as a way to protest conditions inside the prison’s Secure Housing Units — aka “the SHU” — where inmates are held in small, windowless cells for 22 ½ to 24 hours per day. Some of them have been there for decades. The strikers allege that the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) has failed to honor promises made two years ago, in the wake of the first strike. Last month, SHU inmates announced that a “nonviolent peaceful protest of our subjection to decades of indefinite state-sanctioned torture” would resume today. The protest will include not just the hunger strike but also a work stoppage, and it will continue, they said, “until CDCR signs a legally binding agreement meeting our demands, the heart of which mandates an end to long-term solitary confinement (as well as additional major reforms).” “We are certain that we will prevail,” the inmates said in a written statement — “the only question being: How many will die starvation-related deaths before state officials sign the agreement?” The strikers have five core demands: 1. Eliminate group punishments and administrative abuse. 2. Abolish the debriefing policy and modify active/inactive gang status criteria. 3. Comply with the recommendations of the U.S. Commission on Safety and Abuse in America’s Prisons recommendations and end long-term solitary confinement. 4. Provide adequate and nutritious food. 5. Create and expand constructive programming. For some background, view the Journal’s September 2011 cover story (“Caged,” www.northcoastjournal.com) on Pelican Bay and a follow-up article on a federal class-action lawsuit filed on the prisoners’ behalf by the Center for Constitutional Rights. That lawsuit is ongoing. The first round of this hunger strike started inside Pelican Bay’s SHU on July 1, 2011, eventually spreading to more than 6,000 inmates in at least 13 of California’s 33 prisons. Inmates and their advocates
allege that prolonged periods of solitary confinement amounts to torture and that the system for placing inmates in the SHU — and for getting released — violates their rights to due process. In May, Mother Jones magazine named Pelican Bay one of America’s 10 worst prisons. A change.org petition in support of the strikers had gathered nearly 15,000 signatures by Monday evening. ● GOVERNMENT / BY RYAN BURNS / WEDNESDAY, JULY 3 AT 2:11 P.M.
Officer in Cheri Lyn Moore Shooting Offered EPD Chief Job
The Anderson Valley Post is reporting that the job of Eureka’s next police chief has been offered to Michael Johnson, a former EPD sergeant who was involved in the fatal 2006 shooting of 49-year-old Eureka resident Cheri Lyn Moore. Eureka City Manager Bill Panos yesterday confirmed that a job offer had been made but declined to identify the candidate. However, Anderson’s city manager and three city council members confirmed that Johnson has been offered the position, according to the Post. If you’re unfamiliar with — or have forgotten the details of — the 2006 shooting, you can read about them on the Journal’s website (“Scenes from a Shooting,” April, 2006 and “Cause of Death,” September, 2006). The Moore incident was one of five officerinvolved shooting deaths in a 15-month span for the EPD. Johnson, meanwhile, left the EPD in 2007 to become the police chief in Ione, Calif. He has been Anderson’s police chief for a little over a year, according to the Post. ● CRIME / BY RYAN BURNS / WEDNESDAY, JULY 3, AT 5:13 P.M.
Co-op Security Defends Actions
Timothy O’Neal, owner and president of Sacramento-based Protection Loss Prevention, says his officer used textbook police technique when he apprehended an alleged shoplifter Saturday afternoon across the street from the Arcata Co-op. O’Neal’s company has been contracted by the Co-op since 2011.

AN UNIDENTIFIED CO-OP SECURITY GUARD CUFFS A WOMAN IN ARCATA. PHOTO COURTESY OF MICHAEL KING
As we reported yesterday, bead store owner Michael King witnessed the tail end of the incident and later accused the unidentified loss prevention officer of using excessive force. King also said that the officer tried to confiscate his camera. O’Neal, who called the Journal from his company’s Sacramento headquarters this morning, offered a different take. “That is a protocol armband hold,” O’Neal said of the pictures snapped by King. He said you can tell by the angle of the officer’s legs that he was keeping most of his weight on the front foot, not the knee kneeling on the woman’s neck. This technique, he said, is taught at police academies all over the world. “It’s for his safety and her safety, having the knee toward the back of her neck,” O’Neal said. “It looks painful. It does. But we’re not dealing with somebody who’s just a victim.” The Journal asked Arcata Police Detective Sgt. Todd Dokweiler to look at the photos and try to analyze the technique. “That doesn’t look to be drastically different than certain law enforcement handcuffing techniques,” Dokweiler said, though he added that it’s impossible to tell from photographs what level of force was used. After speaking with his employee, whose name he would not reveal, O’Neal claimed that the loss prevention officer identified himself and tried to apprehend the woman after she left the store with stolen merchandise, but the woman resisted violently — running across the parking lot, hitting the officer, scratching his arms
and finally throwing a cup of scalding-hot coffee on him. And O’Neal vehemently denied that his employee tried to take King’s camera. “At no point did he ever say, ‘Give me your camera.’ He said, ‘Please do not take pictures of me.’” King claims that the man repeatedly demanded his camera, even asking a Coop employee to take it from him and then trying to enter the locked bead shop. Melanie Bettenhausen, the North Coast Co-op’s outreach director, said that she couldn’t talk about the case due to privacy concerns and an ongoing investigation into the specifics. But she did say that the Co-op chose to contract with Protection Loss Prevention after verbal and physical threats against store employees got out of hand. “We know we made the right choice, as the number and nature of thieves in our area has increased and gotten more violent over the years,” Bettenhausen said in an email. “We want to have a safe environment for our employees to work and our customers to shop.” Asked whether there’s a policy about the loss prevention officers pursuing people off the property, Bettenhausen said management prefers them to remain on the premises and contact the police. “However, in order for the loss prevention company to do its job, we have to allow them to use their discretion when safety is an issue.” ●

Subdividing Humboldt How Bob McKee remade SoHum and bought himself a decade-long lawsuit Story and photos by Grant Scott-Goforth
ob McKee doesn’t visit his Tooby Ranch property very often, but the last time he drove out there, the ranch’s grasslands — interspersed with black oaks, white oaks and poppies — were remarkably green for late May. Deer skittered across the dirt and the occasional vulture floated overhead. From a high point on what was once a 13,000-acre ranch, he gazed over the jumbled King Range and a narrow, navy strip of the Pacific Ocean barely visible beyond. Below, to the south, the eastern branch of the Eel River’s south fork snaked by. When McKee drove his dusty red Dodge Ram up the hill that day, he was awaiting a ruling in a long trial over accusations that he illegally divided the land after purchasing it in 2000. His 1,000-acre parcel is one of more than 40 he carved out of the sprawling hillside ranch that sits along Alderpoint Road east of Redway and Garberville. With that ruling now issued — but not
yet finalized — the lawsuit that has occupied McKee’s thoughts, shelves and filing cabinets for more than a decade appears to be nearly over. It’s hard to overstate the influence McKee has had on Southern Humboldt County. He’s been actively shaping the landscape and communities around Petrolia, Whitethorn, Redway and other rural areas for more than 50 years through land purchases and sales. He’s bought more than 100 properties in that time and subdivided almost all of them, selling approximately 800 parcels. For many people in the county, he’s an embattled hero who cares about community and land, and who gave fleeing city dwellers a chance to live their pastoral dreams. To others, he’s a serial subdivider out for personal gain who helped create a culture of isolated, resource-gobbling property owners — many of them marijuana growers — whose first thoughts are rarely about the environment. Humboldt County’s decade-long lawsuit against McKee highlighted that divide,

as well as the county’s fight for one of its few protections for resource lands.
McKee’s an affable,
bearded man who’s remarkably spry — though his knees are giving him troubles. At 84 years old, he lives with his wife Valery near Whitethorn, on land inherited from his father, who inherited it from his father before that. McKee’s grandfather mined gold in Mexico after the Civil War, then came to Humboldt County and bought 640 acres in Whitethorn in 1878. When he died in a wagon accident, the property was split up among his five children. McKee’s father would later buy an adjacent piece of land, too. When McKee was just 1 ½, his mother died in childbirth, and his father died of spinal meningitis a few years later. McKee, his sister and half-sister moved in with his grandmother in Eureka, where McKee attended grade school. He often visited southern Humboldt on summer break. After a stint in the Navy, he took
advantage of his GI Bill benefits and attended Humboldt State College, where he met his future wife Valery — the daughter of one of his favorite professors. Despite a rocky academic start (he loved school; didn’t care so much for grades), McKee graduated 6 ½ years later, after studying English literature, art and business administration. While in college he worked nights at Humboldt Land Title Company, printing and sorting the negatives of any land-related documents photographed that day at the county courthouse. Poring over these documents was his first lesson on patent parcels, subdivisions and land transfers, he said. In 1957, Bob and Valery moved to the 160-acre homestead in Whitethorn that he inherited from his dad. There, he started a carpentry business and then taught for six years in Whitethorn and Ettersburg before returning to carpentry. In 1963 bought two properties — five or six acres in Whale Gulch and 20 acres in Bear Creek. Land was cheap then, and McKee said he invested only the small savings
he’d put aside while teaching, although he couldn’t remember exactly how much he put down for either property. He sold both for a profit within a few years, after building houses on them. Several years later, in 1966 or 1967, McKee purchased his first large piece of land — 500 acres in Whitethorn. The asking price? $50,000. The land had title defects, McKee recalled, and he bought it from a Noyo Harbor man who asked just $250 down and collected no interest in the three years it took McKee to subdivide and sell it. McKee, in his steady, gravelly voice, said other land speculators at the time just bought property and held it, but didn’t “improve” it by building or subdividing. “I thought, ‘Jesus — you oughta at least do something to it.’” McKee said bank financing was difficult to come by for rural Southern Humboldt, which meant lots of deals with seller financing. Demand for rural homesteads was high enough, McKee said, that he often sold parcels before or soon after he divided them. He couldn’t estimate the most land he’d held at any one point. Others followed suit. Among those who emulated the McKee model, sometimes including the controversial reliance on old federal parcel lines, was Ken Bareilles, a Eureka attorney and friend of McKee’s, who began subdividing properties in the early 1970s. “Bob, to my knowledge, was the first person who knew we could sell land grant patents,” said Bareilles, who was using the practice by the early 1980s. Bareilles has had his own problems with the county. He pleaded guilty to illegally subdividing a ranch on Titlow Hill in the 1980s. In that case, Bareilles violated the state’s Subdivision Map Act, but did not use patent parcels to divide the land. McKee specialized in idiosyncratic land needs. If someone needed an easement or wanted to extend the borders of existing property, he would try to put together a deal. “Everything I bought seemed to have some little story to it,” he recalled, and he’d ask himself every time, “‘How in the world am I going to pull this off?’” Michael Evenson, who helped McKee subdivide the Fearrin Ranch in Briceland in exchange for a parcel, said it was always a “shoestring operation” with McKee — though he excelled in working with people. “It’s part libertarian, I guess, and part trust in people. That’s really key to Bob’s character.”
By the mid-60s, Southern
Humboldt was beginning to change, in large part thanks to McKee’s subdivisions. The back-to-the-land movement was
gaining momentum, and McKee, despite his rural roots, wasn’t clinging to a good ol’ THE TOOBY RANCH IS JUST SOUTH boy vision.

continued from previous page pollution, particularly from marijuana growers, who often grade land to install greenhouses. A 2004 Fish and Wildlife report on salmon habitat pointed out these harmful effects of subdivision, and said that tax breaks for larger agricultural parcels can be a tool to “preserve a rural landscape for more effective recovery for coho salmon.” Surprisingly, given timber companies’ less than environment-friendly history, large tracts of timber-company lands are better for coho salmon than watersheds that have been divided, Greacen said. “It’s hard going for a long-time, hard-core timber fighter like me to say the timber companies are doing a good job,” Greacen said. But modern practices, enforceable regulations and simply fewer owners to keep track of makes the county’s oversight much simpler.

The Tooby Ranch
lawsuit shows how fiercely the county wished to defend one of its protections for resource lands — the Williamson Act. In 1965, the state Legislature passed Assemblyman John Williamson’s California Land Conservation Act (known since then as the Williamson Act). The law was enacted as an incentive to preserve rural farmland, which was being gobbled up by urban and suburban development. Populations were blooming in areas with prime ag land, and the state hoped to slow subdivisions, sales and non-agricultural development there. The Williamson Act — administered by counties — made it possible for landowners to get hefty tax breaks for maintaining land in at least 50 percent agricultural production. A county reviews the property owned by Williamson Act applicants and identifies eligible land. The county and the owner then enter a contract that renews every year unless agricultural production is inadequate or either side opts not to renew. In the case of a nonrenewal, the property taxes on the land gradually return to normal over 10 years, but all of the restrictions — including the required agricultural production, the minimum parcel transfer size and the terms of the contract — remain in place until the 10 years is up. In 1972, the state began replacing money that counties were losing as a result of the tax breaks. Between 1972
and 2010, when this subvention funding ended, the state paid $876 million to local governments, an average of $23 million a year, to help ease the tax sting. Fifty-three of California’s 58 counties had adopted a Williamson Act program by 2009. Proponents say the Williamson Act is a boon for counties and farmers: Ag land is preserved and agriculture producers get a boost. But pressure from the state department of conservation, followed by the Tooby Ranch lawsuit and the loss of state income, have forced the county to look closely over the last decade at how it administers the Williamson Act.
When McKee bought
the 13,000-acre Tooby Ranch in 2000, he had at least six purchasers lined up. He had hoped to divide the property into more than 40 parcels. Though McKee said it was the first land
14 North Coast Journal • Thursday, July 11, 2013 • northcoastjournal.com
he’d ever bought that was under a Williamson Act contract, he was aware of the ag production requirements. He also knew that Tooby Ranch was under a Williamson Act contract dating from 1977, which, at that time, limited the minimum parcel transfer size to 160 acres. He asked the former owners to remove their cattle operation — he said — so that he could improve the roads and water troughs for future grazing. McKee’s removal of cattle on the Tooby Ranch, along with suspicions that the property was being divided for residential use, raised a red flag for the county, according to court documents. In response to county questions, McKee wrote in 2001 that the ranch would lie fallow until the new owners decided what to do with the land. By 2002 McKee had sold the parcels, and court documents show one of the 30-plus purchasers began running cattle again on a smaller, 360-acre piece of the formerly sprawling ranch. The county sued McKee on Dec. 31, 2002, saying he violated the Williamson Act by removing cattle and taking the land out of production. Later the county
added to its suit that McKee had further violated the act by dividing the ranch into parcels too small by Williamson Act standards. That would become the most contentious portion of the lawsuit. In 2008, a state appellate court ruled that McKee had indeed sold undersized parcels. Though he abided by the 160-acre minimum governing transfers at the time of Tooby’s original Williamson Act contract in 1977, the county had later raised the minimum to 600 acres. If a county changes how it administers the program, the court ruled, a Williamson Act contract holder can accept the changes or get out of the program. McKee never asked for a non-renewal. But the appellate court decision didn’t end the case. After a brief attempt at settlement, it was handed back to the Humboldt County court to decide if and how McKee’s violations would be resolved. The county called for nullification of the deeds, asking Humboldt County Superior Court Judge Dale Reinholtsen to force McKee to purchase back the 44 properties he had sold. The defense said that was extreme. By now, the defense lawyers argued, there were homesteads, ranches, vineyards and other infrastructure that purchasers had invested in and relied upon. “We’ve got people out there that have been entitled to this property for a dozen years,” McKee said. Reinholtsen issued a ruling in June calling for McKee to pay nearly $200,000 in fines for violating the Williamson Act. In his ruling, Reinholtsen wrote that “both sides acted reasonably but imperfectly” and said McKee could be credited for believing he was following the law when he divided the land. Transferring the parcels carried the stiffest penalty under Judge Reinholtsen’s ruling: $149,000 in fines both under Humboldt County code and the state Unfair continued on page 16

continued from page 14 Competition Law. Reinholtsen issued another $50,000 in fines for McKee’s ceasing of grazing on the property. In his ruling, Judge Reinholtsen rejected accusations from both the county and McKee’s attorneys. “The evidence did not support the notion that he is a victim of local government run amok,” Reinholtsen wrote. “At the same time, he cannot be reduced to the caricature of a greedy land developer who flouts the law in the careless pursuit of profits.” No deed nullifications, no buying back of parcels, no razing of homes. So, despite the county winning its lawsuit, McKee’s attorneys were pleased with the penalty, saying it amounted to far less than the county had asked for. Over the phone last week, McKee gave a sort-of dejected chuckle before saying, “Well, I’m basically OK with it. I don’t know what could make me really happy about the end of this lawsuit that never should have even started. I’m glad that we can see the end of it though. I can’t say I’m thrilled about it.” Both county attorneys and McKee’s attorneys filed objections to the tentative rul-

ing, and a final judgment is expected soon. McKee’s attorney objected to the portion of the ruling that found McKee violated the Williamson Act by ceasing cattle grazing between 2000 and 2002. The county called for increased penalties for the transfer of properties, and asked Judge Reinholtsen to award the county its costs in pursuing the lawsuit. The county also called for McKee and the property owners to pay back the nearly $650,000 reduction in taxes that they had enjoyed under the Williamson Act. According to County Assessor Mari Wilson, that figure represents the savings for all the Tooby Ranch parcels between 2001 and 2011. McKee has been responsible for paying taxes for all of the Tooby Ranch properties that he sold between 2000 and 2002 because the county assessor’s office hasn’t recognized the transfers. For the first few years, McKee says he paid them. “I just finally quit and told them I’m not going to do this anymore. You need to assess the record owner,” McKee said. Since then, many of the Tooby Ranch properties have been delinquent on

taxes. Some of the purchasers, wanting to remain in compliance, have paid taxes on their properties. But sorting out back payments and refunds is not going to be simple. When the county recognizes the parcels, said County Auditor/Controller Joe Mellett, the assessor’s office will establish the values of those properties and tax them accordingly. “This is going to be a horrible mess to straighten out,” McKee said.
Other issues remain. While the county’s issues with McKee appear nearly over, he was only the first and most prominent of the 30-plus defendants in the lawsuit. Some ceased agricultural production or further divided parcels in violation of the Williamson Act, said county attorney Josh Cohen. Others built homes or other structures on their properties, which the county maintains violates the Williamson Act.

McKee had taken out a $3 million bank loan to purchase the Tooby Ranch — only the second time, he said, that he’d gotten a bank loan to pay for land. He bought the ranch for $6.7 million and sold it to its multiple new owners for more than $10 million — a profit of more than $3 million, according to court documents. McKee is mostly cool-tempered when continued on next page
It’s unclear exactly how much
has been spent on either side of the lawsuit, but one thing’s for certain: It was a lot. McKee said he’s spent more than $6 million fighting the suit. He said he’s had to put up his property — about 1,000 acres he owns on the Tooby Ranch and 400 acres in Whitethorn, where he lives — as backing to finance his attorney fees.

continued from previous page he’s talking about the lawsuit that’s dominated the last decade of his life, although he grumbles about the county “pissing its money away” on the lawsuit. And he declines to talk about his own finances. Despite a successful career as a developer, he insists he never bought land with much money of his own. He says the Tooby ranch would have been “very profitable,” but those profits all went into his attorney’s fees. Walking around the mill at Whitethorn Construction, he lamented the costs and time spent on the lawsuit that he would have put into that business. He blames the county but admits his own stubbornness, too, contributed to the lengthy lawsuit. “I didn’t want to cave in, no, no.” Asked to estimate his current worth, he sounds bitter. “Are they trying to say I made out like a bandit on this piece of real estate?” he said. “I think it’s none of their goddamn business if you ask me.” It’s hard to tell if he’s declining to discuss his own wealth or any possible financial troubles, although he insists he’s not a wealthy man. For its part, the county has spent at least $3 million on outside attorneys, according to public records that were released following a separate lawsuit filed by the developer-friendly Humboldt Coalition for Property Rights. That doesn’t include the amount of time that staff spent on the lawsuit over 10 years, which the county does not keep detailed records of.
During the time of the law-
suit, political tides were changing in the county. Spurred by the Tooby Ranch and other county land use lawsuits, the Humboldt Coalition for Property Rights was born (see “HumCPR Rising,” March 28). The group and its allies formed the most cohesive bloc of development-friendly landowners that the county had seen. And it was powerful. Four of five county supervisors and two planning commissioners have ties to the group. Last year, supervisors gutted planning director Kirk Girard’s department after years of pushing the Tooby Ranch lawsuit and battling with property rights advocates. He resigned shortly after, taking a job with Santa Clara County. Environmental consultant Sungnome Madrone is no stranger to conflicts with developers — he’s been at odds with former HumCPR treasurer and current Planning Commissioner Bob Morris over a development in Trinidad for years. Madrone’s not happy with the ascendance of developer-friendly politics in the county but said at least politicians’

A Real Slice of Humboldt
The UC’s agricultural tour series By Trevor Reece
t takes a very specific kind of curiosity to be out on Humboldt Bay at 8 in the morning just to see oyster beds, and on June 11 that curiosity was on full display when nearly 40 people boarded the Madaket for the first of a series of tours being put on by the University of California Cooperative Extension — Humboldt. As part of its 100th anniversary, from now until Oct. 12, the UC Cooperative Extension is offering a series of nine “Let’s Get Local” farm tours meant to show off Humboldt’s local producers. The series will cover not only every aspect of agriculture on the North Coast but also give a look into the area’s other well-known industries, like the Loleta Cheese Factory, and newer ones like the DG Fairhaven biomass power plant in Samoa. This is a chance to see a real slice of Humboldt County via some of the industries that have sustained this area. Yana Valachovic, county director of UC Cooperative Extension — Humboldt and Del Norte, is surprised by the interest generated by these tours. The Madaket tour was filled well in
20 North Coast Journal • Thursday, July 11, 2013 • northcoastjournal.com
advance, and the grass-fed beef tour on July 12 in Ferndale is running out of room fast. The Oct. 2 tour of the DG Fairhaven biomass plant in Samoa has already filled up to the plant’s capacity of 20. An average of 30 people have already signed up per tour, and the Veggies and Wine Grapes tour of the Rosina Vineyards on Aug. 11 currently has 40 people signed up with space still available. UC Cooperative reps said that they also saw an increase in sign-ups following the oyster tour. After the captain took us out onto the water, with a safety demonstration that promised that the Madaket follows the “Captain first” plan for emergency evacuations, Greg Dale, general manager of Coast Seafoods, led the tour. Its website states, the Cooperative Extension is an educational outreach program conducted cooperatively by Humboldt and Del Norte Counties, University of California and US Department of Agriculture. This partnership formed in 1913, and though it relies on all three entities, it’s mainly funded and maintained by the Univeristy of California. For every dollar the county puts into
the Cooperative Extension, the UC puts in five. As Valachovic puts it, “It’s a pretty good deal for the county.” Valachovic says that with extensions in 56 counties, the cooperative has the ability to make a real impact on the people of California. One example would be 4-H, which is maintained by the UC Cooperative Extension. Extensions have suffered from the massive budget cuts to California’s education system in recent years, but are rebounding. California’s recently passed 2013-2014 budget saw a 5 percent increase to UC, which amounts to $142 million being put back into the university system for campuses, with some of those funds returning to entities like the Cooperative Extension. Valachovic says she is using the new money to open more jobs in the program, as well as for events like the tour series. Al Steer, from North Coast Air Quality, attended the oyster tour as an observer. Steer said he was interested in “finding out about pathways between the farm and the table,” and that he wanted to take advantage of a rare opportunity to see the oyster beds with long-time professionals. He wasn’t the only one who wanted to see things up close. Toddlers August Kendall and Gately Mason spent most of the boat ride fascinated by the oysters and watching Joe Tyburczy, coastal specialist for HSU, shuck oysters for the entire 90 minutes of the tour. Valachovic lamented that closures and downsizing have made it more difficult to see the inner workings of many local industries. She looks at Pacific Lumber Mill in Scotia, which was built to allow for tours, as one of the opportunities lost when the mill closed 12 years ago. The extension’s tours are partly meant to fill the gap left by such changes. On Sept. 13, the extension is also putting on a gala celebration to commemorate its 100-year anniversary. The festivities will go from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the Arcata Community Center. Dress will be casual, and the event is open to the public. Details will be posted on its website (below) in the next few weeks. All the tours are free to the public as long as space is available. And while most trips are all ages, the redwood mill and biomass power plant visits, Sept. 25 and Oct. 2 respectively, ask that children be over 12 and accompanied by an adult. For more information or to sign up for one of the tours, contact the UC Cooperative Extension at 707-445-7351 or sign up at http://cehumboldt.ucanr.edu/. l

Sweet Spinning Wheels By Ken Weiderman
elieve it or not, art and skating go hand in hand. Ever seen a skate video? Someone had to film and edit it. Those decks the kids skate on? Flip a few over and you’ll be surprised at the diversity and vivacity of their graphics. Graffiti is an important element too, and its rebellious, aggressive lettering contributes to a maturing skate aesthetic that embraces the cold, hard urban asphalt as well as the playful vigor of youth. Both the art and athletics of skating and BMX biking are central to RampArt, a brand new indoor terrain park and creative center developed by Robert Jensen and Matthew Barry. As a member of the Ink People’s DreamMaker program, RampArt received critical assistance with the inevitable bureaucratic hurdles the new business would face. RampArt’s all-volunteer, non-profit, art-heavy strategy meshed nicely with Ink People’s vision for fostering creative opportunities to engage the community in positive ways. The space allows kids to explore their interests in graffiti, alternative art, skating and BMX riding with supervision so they don’t have to do it in places that are potentially dangerous or even illegal. On top of skating and BMX lessons, at RampArt’s week-long summer skate camps, local graffiti masters demonstrate letter construction and essential colorlayering, along with important safety rules and instructions on when and where graffiti is appropriate. Stencil workshops teach kids the basics of cutting out negative-space graphics and words. Adults with skills in graffiti and stencil work have already coated the 4,000 square-foot facility with spray-painted works, providing a drippy, shifting array of colorful murals for an eye-popping background. This month for Arts! Arcata, RampArt is featuring the high-fire stoneware ceramics of Harrison Levenstein. It’s fitting. Where
RampArt is a vessel for young artist’s expression, Levenstein is a young artist making vessels. He’s also a skater. A senior at Humboldt State University as well as an employee of the Fire Arts Center, Levenstein is enamored with the ceramic process. Sitting at his electric potter’s wheel, a beanie keeps his mop of curly hair at bay. Clay splatters his faded shirt, jeans and skate shoes. In front of him, the spinning mound of clay puts him in a meditative state. He describes it as being “in the zone;” the world falls away while he focuses on the clay and its response to the practiced movement of his hands. Levenstein’s work is functional and designed to bring a touch of beauty and charm to those who use it. Drippy ash glazes slide over squiggly slip decorations. Wavy lines lead your eyes around each piece, accentuating their roundness. Subtle bulges in the bodies of his vases bloom with swoopy handles. A rustyorange matte-glazed teapot seems to puff out its chest as it sits proudly aside two little matching cups. Each piece is thrown and slightly altered (pushed, pulled or paddled) before Levenstein adds his trademark dots and flourishes. Nope, that ding in a cup’s foot isn’t an accident, it’s a purposeful mark meant to give more life and personality to these one-of-a-kind works. Levenstein abhors the plethora of cheap, mass-produced “cookie-cutter” ceramics available today. He sees his work as a direct reaction to the empty, soulless feeling he gets when people accept those inferior pots as the norm. Sure, we all need something to eat and drink from, but he says, “when you step back and check out things that people are making with their bare hands,” the laborious effort and high cost of producing such items are “worth it for the aesthetic of it.” Levenstein loves it when he sees friends

and loved ones using his work. Indeed, picking up one of his pieces is a tactile treat. It’s as if you can feel the shape of his hands and sense his connection to each step of the ceramic process. Levenstein is inspired by ceramic artists who push the envelope, playing with their glazes and forms. In turn, he does a lot of experimentation himself, ensuring that each piece is distinctive. The visual continuity of his work is important as well; Levenstein wants you to be able to recognize that the pots originated from his hands. The result is a tight yet fluid look, which he says compares in some ways to the polished splendor of a finely-honed kick flip. “Being a skater has a lot to do with the aesthetics of the tricks,” says Levenstein, and “respect comes from doing a
trick and doing it clean.” For Levinstein, that means not just mindlessly pumping out pots, but taking the time to refine every detail with grace and sophistication. Snappy grinds, shiny pots and more can be found at the Arts! Arcata reception at RampArt Skate Park, 700 South G St., on July 12 from 6 to 10 p.m. Johnny B, Katalyst and Something Simple will bring the tunes — you bring the kids, the good vibes and, of course, your board (optional!). ● Ken Weiderman spent plenty of time throwing clay and skating as a kid, and he turned out all right.

IF YOU PREFER TO HARVEST YOUR OWN BBQ MEAT, WE HAVE YOU COVERED WITH HELP, AND SUPPLIES TIPS FROM BLACK DOG OUTFITTERS. ASK THE EXPERT, BRENDEN: • Prep of wild game meat begins in the ﬁeld. How it was aged, how long it was ‘allowed’ to age, and how carefully it was butchered. • Wild meats are ‘lean’, meaning they cook up a bit dry. • Trimming the membranes and fatty areas from wild game prior to processing decreases the ‘gamey’ taste. • Kill left un-gutted for hours always tastes strong and gamey.

very long two-plus hours. In the end, no matter how hard one might try to like it, the script is so in love with itself that no external affection could compete. Scatological humor is a dividing line for audiences, I find. There’s a lot of it here, especially at the beginning of this script, so those who find it amusing may be gratified while others have ample opportunity to be nauseated. The lighting tricks — lights suddenly switching on and off over different parts of the stage and a weak strobe sequence — seem to strive for cinematic effects and irony, but the idea was probably better than the ineffective reality. Directed by Kristin L. Mack, The Heir Apparent plays at Redwood Curtain Thursdays-Saturdays at 8 p.m. through July 27, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, July 21.
The final theatrical presentation of Dell’Arte’s Mad River Festival is The Submarine Show, performed by Dell’Arte alumni Jaron Aviv Hollander and Slater Brooks Penny. Its comic mixture of mime, acrobatics, storytelling and audience interaction was developed at San Francisco’s Kinetic Art Center, where Hollander is artistic director. It was named Best of the San Francisco Fringe Festival in 2011. This one hour, family-friendly show is presented Thursday through Saturday (July 11-13) at 8 p.m., plus a Sunday matinee on July 14 at 2 p.m., in Dell’Arte’s Carlo Theatre. There’s a preview video at www.submarineshow. com, and more information at www.dellarte.com. Then the following weekend Ferndale Repertory Theatre opens the musical Victor/Victoria on Friday, July 19. Directed by new Ferndale executive director Brad Hills with musical direction by Dianne Zuleger and choreography by Linda Maxwell, it features Jo Kuzelka, Craig Benson, Rigel Schmitt, Lela Annotto-Pemberton, Luke Sikora, Steve Nobles, Jeremy Webb, Luke Tooker and Jeff Keiser.

Number of the Beast By Barry Evans
uick, what’s the sum of the numbers on a roulette wheel? You could add 1 to 2 to 3, all the way up to 36 — or you could note that 1+ 36 is equal to 2 + 35, and so on, all the way up to 18 + 19. That’s 37, 18 times over, or 666. And 666, as everyone knows, is the Number of the Beast. Or was, until 1999. That’s when 666 lost some of its notoriety. The “beastly” connection of 666 comes from a riddle in chapter 13, verse 18 of the last book of the Bible, Revelation. The King James version reads, “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred threescore and six.” Previously, chapter 13 described a vision of two horned beasts, the first of which — the one referred to in verse 18 — has seven heads with blasphemous names (from the Christian point of view), including standard titles given to Roman emperors: “Lord and Savior” and “Savior of the World.” Although the King James version gives the Number of the Beast as 666, as do most modern translations (not to mention The DaVinci Code, The Omen and countless other references in popular culture), 616 has long been an also-ran. The Novum Testamentum Graece (Greek New Testament) of 1514, for instance, has 616, not 666. More importantly, 616 is found in the very oldest fragment of Revelation, dating to about 300 CE, found at the archeologically rich site of Oxyrhynchus in southern Egypt. Unearthed in 1895, the fragment (see photo) was illegible until the advent

of ultraviolet imaging. When published in 1999, it pretty much put the kibosh on the 666 tradition. The number is in the third line: chi-iota-stigma, or hexakosiai-dekahex: 616. But whether the correct number is 666 or 616, it probably refers to one particular “beast,” the Roman emperor Nero, who reigned from 54 to 68 CE. John, author of the book of Revelation (sometimes called the Apocalypse, or “unveiling,” of John) recorded his visions while living in a cave on the bucolic Aegean island of Patmos, possibly during or soon after the reign of Nero, whom John considered the arch-enemy of the new Christian faith. According to Ellen Aitken, professor of early Christian history at McGill University, Revelation is actually a thinly disguised political tract, “a critique of the politics and societies of the Roman Empire … written in coded language and riddles.” Transliterating Nero’s Greek name and title “Neron Caesar” into Hebrew, in which letters stand for numbers, gives 666. Doing the same with the Latin version, “Nro Caesar” gives 616. So that tasteful “666” tat you got during your Megadeth phase? Sorry, 616 is the new 666. And the roulette wheel no longer symbolizes Nero-the-Beast — who, as it turns out, probably wasn’t that bad a guy after all. l Barry Evans (email@example.com) saw only lush green fields and the blue Aegean Sea from John’s cave on Patmos. The only horned beast in sight was a goat.

History Lesson Everything old is new again By Jennifer Savage firstname.lastname@example.org
ey, folks! I know we’re in the thick of summer and Barry Evans’ Field Notes is probably about as academic as you want to get, but this week’s music highlights call for a little history review, beginning with a particularly epic year in the late 1970s …
The year punk exploded
1977: EMI fires the Sex Pistols, Fleetwood Mac releases Rumours, The Clash releases The Clash, 76,229 people attend a Led Zeppelin concert, Elvis Presley dies, so does Marc Bolan, so do three members of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Virgin Records releases Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols, a group of guys in Los Angeles form a band they call Black Flag (a band that will eventually be remembered as the definitive LA hardcore band) and 1977 goes down in history as the year punk exploded. Now, 36 years later, a version of Black Flag is resurrected and performing at the Mateel Community Center on Wednesday, July 17. The band features guitarist Greg Ginn, the one and only constant member of the group, known for both his drama-plagued venture SST Records (see: The Minutemen, Hüsker Dü, the Meat Puppets, Sonic Youth, et al.) and for engineering Black Flag’s heaving, furious sound. Black Flag also features Ron Reyes on vocals — he held the same duty in 1979 and 1980 before quitting the band and eventually being replaced by Henry Rollins. Reyes additionally performs as Piggy, one of the opening acts, and Ginn and Mike Valley have an opening gig as Good For You, proving that age is no match for passion. Ponykiller rounds out the show. Tickets are $30 in advance, everything starts around 7 p.m., and the show is all ages. Full details at www.mateel.org.
Cowpunk goes altcountry, a road trip
So 1977 was the year punk exploded, but 1991 was the year that punk broke — and broke musical options wide open. Whether or not the grunge explosion changed the course of musical history is a debate to have over drinks on the Shanty patio or maybe in Humboldt State’s Mass Media and Popular Culture class, but what cannot be denied is that the various strains of “alternative music” included Uncle Tupelo, a band who not only paved the way, but laid down multiple lanes, built overpasses and tunnels, wove through mountains and cities, all the while leaving behind multiple signs reading “This Way” into the world that would become known as alt-country. Uncle Tupelo ultimately split into Wilco and Son Volt, but the legacy of the band’s influence reverberates today every time you hear some DJ put Johnny Cash and The Decemberists back-to-back — or when you head out to Humboldt Brews on Thursday night. Portland-based Blitzen Trapper invokes the melancholic 1990s Americana soundtrack and then some — think Dylan, Neil Young, Beck — but pulls off that fine feat of distilling influences into something purely the band’s own. Each of

Blitzen Trapper’s six albums calls to mind the genre’s history, which then serves as a launch pad for song after beautiful song. From frontman Eric Earley’s own description of his work: “I’m seeking to invoke the unseen, the spirit that beckons you to saddle up that old 1980 Honda Goldwing, or your uncle’s beat up Ford Bronco, or that Jeep you somehow, and only barely, keep running and leave this lonely town behind … head for someplace better … where the ‘company of strangers/and the close and the present dangers’ are all that really matters.” Give a listen to Wild Mountain Nation, American Goldwing and Furr, then catch Blitzen Trapper at Humboldt Brews, Thursday, July 11 at 9:30 p.m. The Quiet Ones open. Cover is $15, show is 21-and-over, and more info is at www.humboldtbrews. com.
Meanwhile, back in Humboldt…
Backtrack to the 1970s. While the punks were losing their minds in Los Angeles and the rest of the country, up here in Humboldt County, 1978 marked the first of what would become the annual Humboldt Folklife Festival. This year’s homage to traditional folk music kicks off Saturday at 5 p.m. with Chris Parreira (of The Trouble) and the Pilot Rock Ramblers filling Mad River Brewery’s Tasting Room. Free! Parreira taps into
the roadweariness of a traveling musician with his tales of loneliness and sparks of joy, and the Ramblers play a mix of Celtic music, country, bluegrass, original tunes and what the band’s members refer to as “hurtin’ cheatin’ songs.” Local fisherman Pete Needham aces the dobro and is joined by Bryce Kenny on bass and vocals, local media mogul Patrick Cleary on mandolin, the sweet Irish tenor voice of Tim Harkins and Jim Adams on guitar and vocals. For more on the Folklife Fest, see the Calendar in this week’s Journal.
Despite all the efforts of suffragettes and riot grrrls over the past century and a half, we still don’t see and hear women playing music at the same rates as men — they’re more often stuck with the cliché of being the near-naked ladies draped over clothed male musicians in promo shots and music videos, a tiresome and problematic double-standard. You can help nudge society in the right direction on Saturday night when the Alibi hosts a benefit for North Star Quest Camp for Girls. For $5, you’ll bounce around to the decidedly fun and girly beat of Eureka’s The Lost Luvs plus the garage rock of Arcata’s Shores Galore.
Cool show on a Tuesday night
Finally, jam bands remain firmly entrenched in Humboldt’s past, present and future. Therefore, a quick note about a show happening on Tuesday, July 16. PC Productions presents The Mike Dillon Band with Bloodkin — especially notable for being one of Widespread Panic’s oft-cited influences — at The Jambalaya. Things get rolling at 9 p.m., show is 21-andover.

Neil Gaiman is a charmingly bizarre combination of Roald Dahl and Edgar Allen Poe. He has gained rock star status as a writer in the hipster/ nerd crowd, penning popular episodes of Doctor Who, winning repeat Hugos and Nebulas, and gaining a Twitter following that boggles the mind. Gaiman’s imagination produces fantastically dark and quirky stories that appeal to both children and adults. Often, he blurs the line between the two genres, weaving fairy tales so eerie and rife with horror that they put the Brothers Grimm to shame. His newest, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, is a story told from a child’s perspective but with adult hindsight and peculiar themes. The now-middle-aged narrator (whose name remains a mystery) returns to his childhood home on a rural, wooded lane in Sussex. His homecoming spurs the return of the long-forgotten memory of his seventh birthday. That was the year he got a cat, lost a cat, accidentally used his body as a passage to welcome in spirits that do not belong in this world and got another cat. Following the suicide of one of his parents’ boarders, our narrator seeks refuge in the home of his eccentric neighbors, the Hempstocks. Though Lettie Hempstock claims to be only 11, our narrator is sure she is wise beyond her years, since she understands things about the world that he has never even imagined. With the help of her mother and grandmother, Lettie has to close the supernatural doorway she has accidentally opened before something terrible makes its way through. Ocean is being billed as one of Gaiman’s first adult novels in a long while, but this description is questionable. Though many of the underlying themes are heavy-hitting and certainly not sugarcoated, there is no reason why a young adult or pre-teen could not fully enjoy, comprehend or process them. Gaiman illustrates the ideas of loss, love and trust in a way that borders on the allegorical, while at the same time being tragically realistic in terms of emotions. These are not foreign themes when compared to the required reading lists at most junior high schools. Still, Gaiman adds a twisted and peculiar originality to the otherwise common literary themes. Ocean is more devastating than some of his previous novels, like Coraline and The Graveyard Book. It’s also slightly less engrossing; it meanders from beginning to end, coming together in small pieces from time to time. His other works, for adults and children, have a stronger sense of direction and more artfully complex story structures. Ocean is still cleverly delightful, but it’s not Gaiman at his best. — Dev Richards

What Happened to You, Johnny Depp? Another big-budget disappointment from the once-unpredictable heartthrob By John J. Bennett email@example.com
THE LONE RANGER. Johnny Depp used to be one of the most charming and versatile actors in Hollywood. Nowadays he’ll occasionally show up in something interesting (Public Enemies, The Rum Diary). But even these late-period highlights demanded little more than his rakish charm and tried-and-true oddball swagger. Instead of stretching his range he’s tied his fortunes to directors Tim Burton and Gore Verbinski. The former partnership produced a couple of lasting, distinctive, dare I say classic movies in the 1990s, but their shared output has since become a case study in diminishing returns. With

Verbinski, it appears that Depp has decided to forgo acting altogether in favor of caricature and gigantic paychecks. Their Pirates of the Caribbean movies (the first three in the franchise) were a profit landslide, even if each was bigger, louder and harder to watch than the last. (Number five is in the works.) More recently they reteamed to make Rango (2011), which I found unpleasant, derivative and not very funny. Most everybody else disagreed, apparently: It made a tidy fortune at the box office and then somehow won the Oscar for best animated feature. The Lone Ranger, their latest collaboration, stumbles out of the gate and never recovers. While not entirely without positive attributes, it cranks up the stuff I didn’t like about Rango to an excruciating level, and sustains it almost interminably. Armie Hammer plays our protagonist as a bumbling do-right buffoon, and his transition into accidental hero feels implausible and forced. Depp’s portrayal of Tonto (which some have called racist) isn’t particularly fresh or revelatory. In fact, it borrows liberally from his early physical comedy roles. That said, Depp remains compulsively watchable, and he carries the whole noisy, unpleasant affair squarely on his shoulders. Whenever the narrative shifts away from Tonto, or even when he moves out of frame, the level of watch-
ability dips dangerously. As with Pirates, the scale and quality of the production design are hard to knock. There are wide, sweeping shots aplenty, filled with impeccable Old West sets and costumes. The stunt players and horsemen really get to showcase their skills. The supporting cast, especially William Fichtner, Helena Bonham Carter and Barry Pepper, give fun, appropriately outsize performances. But the high level of design and detail serves a dubious purpose. The Old West, as Verbinski imagines it, is a filthy, violent nightmare filled with coarse grotesques. Life is devalued currency, with death doled out indiscriminately. Yet this is a family movie, so the repercussions of that violence are never addressed. The body count just keeps rising without even a nod to what it really means, or how horrible it really is. Apologists will likely call Verbinski’s style visual “homage,” but to me it looks more like wholesale thievery. As in Rango, he cops immediately recognizable motifs and even specific shots from too many classic Westerns to list here. Maybe most grievous and unpleasant of these thefts is the framing story, wherein Depp wears old-age makeup and tells his story to a kid in a Lone Ranger costume. There are moments of attractiveness, humor and excitement scattered throughout The Lone Ranger, but against its bloated 2 1/2-hour running time they can only do so much. And they certainly can’t make up for the nasty, predictable narrative in this cacophonous disarray of a movie. PG13. 149m. DESPICABLE ME 2. Right out front I’ll admit that I never saw Despicable Me. Despite that handicap, I truly enjoyed the sequel. The story reconnects us with Gru (Steve Carell), a reformed super-villain and adoptive father of three girls. He’s no longer committed to wreaking global havoc, having settled into a life of domestic bliss. But in no time he’s enlisted by the Anti-Villain League as their own Hannibal Lecter: They’ll use a criminal mastermind to capture a criminal mastermind. This sets off a whirlwind adventure that reaches back into Gru’s distant past and sparks a potential romance with AVL operative Lucy (Kristen Wiig). DM2 has a distinctive, pretty visual style, compelling vocal performances and a quick-paced, clever plot. Perhaps most importantly, the comedy here works for kids and adults. Not every joke lands, but that’s easily forgiven because the filmmakers don’t take the “winking at the parents” shortcut to humor. Instead, the writers focused on delivering solid jokes that don’t rely on age bias or dark sarcasm. They’re just genuinely funny and produce a movie that everybody in the family can enjoy on the same level. PG. 98m. — John J. Bennett
FOR KIDS ONLY! GIVE THE GARDEN THE BOOT
PACIFIC RIM. This homage/update to Godzilla-style monster movies comes from visionary Mexican director Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth) and stars Idris Elba (Stringer Bell on “The Wire”). In other words, sign me up! When legions of giant creatures emerge from the ocean and start some shit, humanity builds giant robots to fight them. My inner child is giddy at the prospect. PG13. 131m. GROWN UPS 2. Dennis Dugan is one of America’s most consistent filmmakers — consistently shitty, that is. His directing resume includes 14 films, starting with 1990’s Problem Child (which earned an abysmal 4 percent rating on RottenTomatoes.com) and continuing through 2011’s Jack & Jill (even more reviled at 3 percent). Grown Ups, the lowbrow 2011 comedy starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock and David Spade, was also crap, but it made loads of money. Hence: sequel. Sigh. PG13. 101m. TURBO. Opening next Wednesday, with a preview screening in Fortuna Tuesday night, the latest from Dreamworks Animation imagines a garden snail who longs to be fast. Voice talent from Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti and Michael Peña. PG. This month’s Ocean Night at the Arcata Theatre Lounge offers a double feature: environmental action doc Rock the Boat, which follows activists down the concrete-captured L.A. River, and surf flick The Heart & the Sea, which follows surfers on waves. 6:30 p.m. At 6 p.m. Sunday, Woody and Buzz are back in Toy Story 2 (1999). G. 92m. And next Wednesday’s feature for Sci-Fi Pint and Pizza Night is the 1967 German-Yugoslav creeper The Horrors of Spider Island. Doors at 6 p.m.
THE HEAT. Sandra Bullock, as an overachieving FBI agent, and Melissa McCarthy, as a brash, foul-mouthed Boston cop, fight crime in this comedy from the director of Bridesmaids. R. 117m. MAN OF STEEL. Did the world need another Superman reboot? Probably not. And definitely not one so abrasive and dull. PG13. 140m. MONSTERS UNIVERSITY. Pixar’s prequel to Monsters, Inc. finds Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sulley (John Goodman) in scare school. G. 104m. WHITE HOUSE DOWN. Channing Tatum does his John McClane impression as a Capitol cop out to rescue the president (Jamie Foxx) from armed nogoodniks. PG13. 131m. WORLD WAR Z.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction.

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.
