Police and Prison Excess Editor: All three items in last week’s Blog Jammin’ (July 11) had to do with the overreaches of law enforcement. The first concerned the prison hunger strike, a desperate and painful act of resistance. They are up against a formidable empire. Prisons employ over a million people. Prison shares are traded on the stock exchange. They support whole cities. If we were to return to pre-1970s prisoner/population ratios we’d have to release four out of five inmates. The war on drugs created a permanent American undercaste. Prolonged confinement in the Secure Housing Unit has been courtdetermined to be torture. The strikers’ solidarity is inspirational. The picture of the “loss prevention” agent hired by the Arcata Co-op(!) with his knee on the neck of the woman with flowing red hair speaks for itself. There is pitifully spilled food all over the sidewalk, her unnaturally forced-up arms are grasped by an intimidatingly muscular man. “Excessive force” is an understatement.  Which leads to the choice of one of Cheri Lyn Moore’s killers for the next Eureka Police chief. This selection is a slap in the face to the thousands of Eurekans who still grieve over that tragedy. Our office serves people who are severely traumatized by Cheri’s violent and unnecessary death, as are others by the police deaths of 16-year-old Chris Burgess and Martin Cotton. Even if Michael Johnson turned into a model police chief in Anderson, he must not come back here.  Humboldt County does not need any more SWAT team mentality policing. The strategy of trying to force poor people to leave the area by making life intolerable has to be discarded. These hard times will be a lot more bearable if we can remember that any people in difficulty could, at a different time, be ourselves. Ellen Taylor, Petrolia

continued from page 5 our group has yet to be heard in this important discussion that affects us in our back yard. The fact that Green Diamond had plans for five separate THPs that virtually ring Strawberry Rock is a reality that local Trinidad citizens were unaware of until relatively recently, otherwise they would have demanded public hearings on the matter. At least in the McKay tract negotiations there has been public input for the past two years to develop a comprehensive community conservation plan. I and 11 other Trinidad residents became informed of Green Diamond’s clearcutting plans and, as a result, organized a citizen’s action group called the Trinidad Community Forest Coalition. We’ve met with a representative of Green Diamond and expressed our concerns. We commend Green Diamond for its conservation easement proposal for Strawberry Rock —this is an effort that demonstrates the company’s interest in conserving a valuable community asset. On the other hand, we believe that further conservation efforts are possible and we wish to discuss these options with the company. We agree with the Yurok tribe that this is “a spiritual place with deep cultural significance” and thus worthy of protection. While Strawberry Rock may not be a pristine forest like the McKay tract, it deserves as much effort to save it by the communities of the North Coast. We urge Green Diamond, the Trust for Public Lands, the Yurok Tribe and other interested parties to have an open public discussion on the fate of this precious gem of the North Coast so we can create

Larry Goldberg, Trinidad Editor: It’s a shame that a million dollars of scarce environmental funds are being used to purchase a tiny easement for local recreation around Strawberry Rock.

casting can grant a waiver of the $800,000 Non-federal Financial Support requirement. Such a waiver would enable KEET to receive this vital funding. One wonders if Mr. Erstling’s “our-interest-is-not-exactlyin-preserving-the-current-station” stance is based less on reaching the widest possible audience (including such rural areas as ours) and more on appeasing right-wing Congressional funders who loath the independence and candor of PBS (and National Public Radio). Duncan B. MacLaren, Fieldbrook

Help Keep KEET

Rethink Dune Science

Editor: Compliments to J. Daniel Fernandez for his informative article (“KEET at the Crossroads,” June 20), and to the NCJ for giving former volunteer/employee Matt Knight the opportunity to air his opinions (“Inside KEET,” June 27). I think KEET-TV is a North Coast treasure that warrants our best efforts to preserve it. How? I would suggest two actions: First, become a member of KEET, or — at least — make a contribution to the station. It is estimated that only one out of eight people who tune in to watch KEET programs are members. And, yes, I know we’re bombarded for requests for donations by many, many worthwhile organizations. But KEET-TV is truly unique, and deserves our continued support. No other broadcast source brings us news and public-affairs programming of the quality of “PBS NewsHour” or “Frontline,” or children’s programming of the quality of “Sesame Street” or “Curious George.” Second, write a letter or send an email to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (401 Ninth Street NW, Washington, DC 20004-2129). Insist that the CPB approve the federal grant of $540,000 for KEET that Mr. Fernandez referenced in his article. Mr. Fernandez did an excellent job of reporting the CPB’s view as expressed by Senior Vice president Mark Erstling. The fact is that the Corporation for Public Broad-

Editor: It is becoming apparent to an increasing number of us that the 30-year-old science that accompanied these vegetation removal projects needs an update (“Rogue Dune Experiment,” June 20). The permits granted for these projects did not allow for the changes we see happening. We have much more current information that can help us rebuild and secure our barrier foredunes, and still provide for a rich and diverse habitat. It is time to graduate and learn from our mistakes. Uri Driscoll, Arcata

Why Them? Editor: If, as some readers claim (“Mailbox,” June 27 and July 4), the great majority of Humboldt residents are enamored with the pristine Humboldt landscape, uncluttered by piecemeal development, why then did they elect this Board of Supervisors? Terence Marlow, Trinidad

Correction Last week’s story “Straightening the Hairpins” contained errors. While Caltrans is overseeing the project on State Route 299, much of the construction work has been contracted out to the Eureka-based Mercer-Fraser Company. Also, the 223 accidents from 2005 to 2009 occurred just east of the Trinity-Shasta county line, not west. The Journal regrets the errors.

No More Fuel Boost

After eight years, Rob Arkley’s entrepreneur competition comes to an end By Emily Hamann


hat do a hotdog cart, a flower-planting robot and a preschool have in common? They’re all Humboldt County businesses that got a leg up by winning Economic Fuel. Established in 2006, the annual Economic Fuel competition has attracted local entrepreneurs hoping to win start-up cash for their businesses. In each of the last eight years, $117,000 in prize money was awarded to the eight teams judges thought had the best business plan and best elevator pitch, among other criteria. But last week, Economic Fuel coordinator Rachel Callahan announced that the competition will not be coming back next year. Rob Arkley’s Security National, the corporation that launched the competition and provided much of the prize money, will no longer be funding it, Callahan said. In a January radio interview on KINS, Arkley said Security National was moving its headquarters from Eureka to Louisiana because of California’s high business taxes. Arkley didn’t respond to phone calls or an email. Of the 48 teams than won prize money before 2012, at least 19 are still in business. The fate of the others couldn’t be determined with Google searches for the names of the winners. (One website listed

in the business plan of a runner up is blank except for the word “success” typed small in the upper left corner.) Only two of the successful businesses have left Humboldt County, leaving at least 17 local businesses that got help from Economic Fuel — a financial boost, feedback on business plans, advice from experts and other resources. During its eight-year run, judges awarded $936,000 in seed money to 64 teams. Each year saw four $25,000 grand prize winners, a $10,000 runner up, a $5,000 second runner up and two $1,000 honorable mention winners. Of the 24 teams that won the grand prize prior to 2012, at least 14 are still in business, all but one of them in Humboldt County. BrainGrooves, T. Aaron Carter’s business, is not among them. He envisioned it as a “Blackboard killer,” he said. Blackboard is a software company that makes a learning management system for teachers, which to Carter always felt like an “unfinished product.” In 2004 he came up with the idea for BrainGrooves, a system that could compile web links to class materials, which teachers could then bookmark in their browsers and share with students — or anyone — around the world. Carter and his partner, Brooks Call, wrote a business plan and entered the 2006 Economic Fuel competition,

eventually winning the $25,000 grand prize, which they used to buy computers, software and other equipment. Then they started hiring computer coders for their website. “That’s when we started to learn we needed a lot more money,” Carter said. With all the features they wanted BrainGrooves to have, they would need at least 20 employees and 10 times the money they’d won from Economic Fuel. Meanwhile, Blackboard was patenting technologies Carter needed to run his site. “Anything that offers education through the Internet, Blackboard tried to patent,” he said. This created a major roadblock. BrainGrooves officially went out of businesses in 2011, but Carter doesn’t consider it a waste. “It was a learning experience,” he said. Now he’s the marketing director for Pacific Outfitters and works at Spiderboldt, a company that contracts with small local businesses for marketing advice. “[BrainGrooves] led to better things,” he said. Also in 2006, Ken Owens, an associate professor of math at Humboldt State, entered the competition with one of his students, Paul Burgess. They’d been working to build a landmine-clearing device under the company name Cognisense Labs. After presenting at Economic Fuel, they walked away with $25,000, and

they went on to win another $250,000 in grants from funders such as Intel and the National Science Foundation. Now they’re developing a robot that plants flower bulbs. “It’s backbreaking, dirty, repetitive work,” Owens said. “It seemed like a good thing for a machine to do.” They hope Sun Valley Floral Farms will be interested in buying the technology. Cognisense Labs has now been in business for eight years. “We’re still alive. That’s a miracle for startups,” Owens said. “I wouldn’t have the company if I hadn’t won Economic Fuel.” When Cory Fitze won $25,000 in 2010, the prize was worth more than just the cash. He was 19 when he entered the competition with Sherlock Records Management, a company that stores records and manages documents for other businesses. Because of his age, businesses were hesitant to trust him. “[Winning Economic Fuel] gave me instant credibility,” Fitze said. “I owe Rob and Cherie Arkley a lot.” Owens laments the end of the competition. “Our area sorely needs economic development,” he said. “We need these young people coming up with ideas and turning them into businesses.” Economic Fuel was “sort of a ray of sunshine in our economic climate,” he said. “I looked at it as a North Coast institution.” •

Eureka, new waitstaff are being trained to serve at Main Street Steaks, Wolfe’s new venture in Fortuna. The renovation is nearly finished … but not quite. Wolfe is not waiting. She and her staff will be catering on site — not cooking there — and serving up steaks during Rodeo Week.

Fuel for the Fire

If you were out for Arts Alive! last October, you probably stood in the orange, propane-powered glow of El Pulpo Mecanico, Duane Flatmo’s 25-foot tall, truck-mounted, scrap-metal octopus that shoots flames from its head and moving tentacles. It’s hard to miss. El Pulpo is hitting the road for Burning Man again this year, and Flatmo is once again running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the trip and the sculpture’s necessary retooling. This time, it’s going to take $12,000 to get the scrappy cephalopod to the desert. Flatmo is optimistic, and with good reason — as of this morning, the coffers were filled to $10,124. First, El Pulpo needed new wheels. He found a van at John’s Used Cars and Wreckers —“almost free,” says Flatmo with a chuckle — and cut it down to fit the sculpture. Next, all the flame-shooting mechanisms had to be rebuilt, including roughly $6,000 worth of gas lines and other equipment. “It’s amazing how much it takes to safely dispense propane,” says Flatmo. And safe it must be, since it has to be approved by Nevada’s DMV and the fire marshal. Flatmo expects that he and electrician Jerry Kunkel will be scrambling until it’s time to load the 15 to 20 pieces of El Pulpo onto two flatbeds and drive to Black Rock City, Nev. There they’ll have four days to put it all back together before Burning Man starts on Aug. 26. This may be the last ride for the hunk of burning art, as Flatmo has other projects in mind. Next year, maybe “a monstrous Pegasus,” he says. He imagines

Au Revoir, Avalon … Sort of

In a phone conversation Monday, owner Beverly Wolfe stated that “Avalon is not open, but it’s not closed.” That is, it’s not open with its regular hours, at least for now. Due to issues with the restaurant’s liquor license, Wolfe says Avalon cannot be closed to the public and still serve alcohol at Main Street Steak in Fortuna during rodeo week. For now, the Eureka restaurant will open for a handful of days over the next two weeks. Wolfe says she does not want Avalon — which opened 14 years ago — to be open nightly anymore, but is not sure yet in what capacity it will remain open in the future. She is consider-

ing a number of options (from full-time restaurant to bar and hors d’oeuvres) all of which depend on logistics and staffing. Previously, Wolfe told the Journal that Sunday night, Bastille Day, would be Avalon’s last night serving dinner to the public in the high-ceilinged dining room. While Avalon and its French-infused menu enjoyed a loyal following, the restaurant has struggled in recent years. A faltering economy and increased competition from a number of new restaurants opening in the area have not helped. “The pie hasn’t gotten any bigger,” says owner Beverly Wolfe. Avalon won’t disappear, though. Wolfe will still be catering and holding private events in the restaurant space. Bookings are already coming in, and she says she feels fortunate. Wolfe is also on the lookout for someone to manage and market cooking classes at Avalon, similar to those run out of the North Coast Co-op.

Eureka-Arcata trail advocates may soon have a new ally in Caltrans, after the Coastal Commission dealt a blow to Caltrans’ safety corridor plans in a report the commission released at the end of June. Caltrans’ preferred plan (it has come up with six alternatives) included an interchange at Indianola Cutoff, a signal at northbound Airport Road and closure of other median crossings on the highway. The project requires Coastal Commission review. In the report, Coastal Commission staff recommended against the project, saying Caltrans did not prepare sufficient mitigation for 10 acres of wetlands that would be filled by the Indianola Interchange. The plan doesn’t address statewide coastal trail goals either, according to the report, and could make bicycling on the corridor more dangerous as speeds are expected to increase with the development of an overpass. “A coastal trail may eventually be implemented on the parallel rail line corridor, but the implementation and timing of such an alternative trail remains speculative,” the report reads. The report calls for three provisions to Caltrans’ plan: 1.

possible. 2. Provide for a separated bicycle/pedestrian corridor on one or both sides of the highway along the entire corridor. 3. Provide wetland mitigations. The staff report will go before the Coastal Commission in Eureka in September. Bill Kier, a former director of the North Coast Railroad Authority (NCRA), said the Coastal Commission’s report could entice Caltrans to push for a trail on the existing rail corridor between Eureka and Arcata. “I’m confident that Caltrans can find funds with which to become a major partner in a bay trail development to a far greater extent than any participation that they’ve alluded to,” Kier said. Converting the bay’s rails to a trail would conflict with the desires of the NCRA’s sole contractor, Northwestern Pacific Railroad, which Kier said doesn’t want to see lines tampered with, even in the defunct northern end of the line. But NCRA this week unanimously approved a salmon restoration project east of Laytonville on Woodman Creek that calls for the removal of 200 feet of NCRA line. That decision indicates the NCRA may be more willing to deviate from its trail policy, which doesn’t allow the replacement of rails with trails. “There are simply times when the public good requires that we encroach upon the rail corridor more than the previous policies would permit,” Kier said. ●



Humboldt County Sheriff’s Officer Fired After Alleged Assault

A deputy with the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office was fired late last month after he allegedly kicked a sleeping inmate at the county jail. The officer, named Sean O’Brien, also allegedly directed racial slurs at inmates on numerous occasions, according to a June 24 inter-office memo. The memo, which was sent by Sheriff Mike Downey, informed O’Brien that he was being terminated, effective June 30. A photocopy of the memo was mailed to the Journal anonymously. Downey explained in the memo that O’Brien was being terminated after an internal affairs investigation into an inmate allegation of “assault under color of authority.” Here’s the key paragraph: [Utah] Boyd [an inmate] reported that when you entered the N219 unit [cell] you walked over to Morgan Wright’s bunk and due to him not being awake yet you kicked him hard enough to knock him out of his bunk. Boyd also reported that you have made statements to inmates, such as, “All right, niggers, let’s get to work,” while working at the wood lot. Downey said he could not comment on the matter because it’s a personnel issue. A Facebook profile for Sean O’Brien suggests that he’s a local, having attended Eureka High School and College of the Redwoods. The profile picture shows a poker hand, a U.S. Marshal’s badge and a revolver with a smoking barrel.

On June 24, the day the memo was sent, a friend posted on O’Brien’s Facebook wall, asking, “Dude is everything ok,” to which O’Brien responded, “Not really don’t know.” ● AGRICULTURE / BY EMILY HAMANN / WED, JULY 10 AT 6:26 P.M.

SF Company Wants to Put Oysters in Humboldt Bay

Still not burned out on oysters? Well, you’re in luck! The Bay Area Hog Island Oyster Company is eyeing Humboldt Bay as the site for a new oyster hatchery. The Humboldt Bay Harbor District approved a permit and CEQA documents that Hog Island needs to start going through with its plans at Thursday’s Board of Commissioners meeting.

growing oyster seed because of its high health certification and clean, deep waters just offshore. “Humboldt Bay has proven to be a great place to grow oyster seeds,” he said. Growing oyster seed involves buying or producing oyster larvae, then nurturing them in the floating beds and in tanks on land until they’re between a quarter and three-quarters of an inch long. Then they’ll be sold or transported to Hog Island’s other facility on Tomales Bay where they will be grown into full-size oysters. ●

Another One Rides the Bus Joining the don’t drives, the dreamers, the everyday folks and the schemers on Humboldt Transit’s finest Story and photos by Heidi Walters


wo tatted-up guys sit at the 11th and N bus stop in Fortuna, passing a pretty glass pipe. Eyes shuttered. Coughing. “We’re traveling hip hop artists,” the taller one tells me. He’s wearing black and white pinstriped duds, and has strips shaved out of one eyebrow. He’s Jordan Marozine. This is his best friend, Vince Moen (who’s wearing a cartoony hoodie and an A’s hat). They’re both 22, from Sacramento. They’ve been in Fortuna a week — did a couple of impromptu performances, at the Oyster Festival and at a graffiti shop in Eureka. “I like to write really prideful music,” says Marozine. He says he lived a lot of places as a kid, with different people (his dad was in prison, and his mom somewhere else). “If I can help anybody through the pain God got me through, I want to do it. Our lyrics are positive and uplifted. People see me and expect me to do bad. But I prove them wrong. I like to push happiness.” Moen is smiling as Marozine talks. So, uh, what do they think of riding the bus? “The Greyhound buses are terrible,” says Moen. “The bathrooms smell. City buses are fine.” And here comes the Mainline bus. Heading north.

Last year, people made 6 billion

trips by bus in the United States, according

to the American Public Transportation Association. I wasn’t one of them. But in mid-April, I joined the party, becoming one of thousands of Humboldt residents and visitors who rely on the county’s seven public bus transit systems (not counting paratransit, the direct pick-up system for those who can’t get to bus stops). Sometimes I’ve ridden on the Redwood Transit Mainline, sometimes going around in circles on the wait-forever-forit or dash-to-catch-it Eureka Transit. Before, I drove everywhere. Or walked.

after shoulder surgery. Still, if you can’t drive — too poor, too broke, too disabled, too young, too whatever — having a bus to take you places is downright freeing, in its own regimented way. To rely on the bus is to be ensnared by time and space constrictions. You need a lot more time. Time to walk or roll to and from the stop. Time to sit on the bus as it makes umpteen other stops. In Eureka at least, you’d better hope your day’s work or appointment schedule



melds well with the hourly intervals that the bus arrives at any given stop. All it takes to screw it up is for the bus to be late — or leave early. It happens. And if you live in Fairhaven or Samoa, forget it — closest bus stop’s in Manila. And then there are the people on the bus. That rude boy in the red shirt and torn white socks, destination DMV, who wouldn’t move his feet out of the aisle for me to get past. The lady on her phone buying a fluffy white kitten from someone on Craigslist. Bus people can be weird. Or wonderful. Either way, you’re sitting right next to them. This temporary, throwntogether proximity requires a certain etiquette. In fact, there’s an official sign on the inside of the bus that spells it out. The gist of it is, respect other people’s space. Imagine a bubble of protection around each of them. If you pop it and they mind, and you don’t stop bugging them, the driver will boot your butt off the bus. And no swearing, either.

One morning

I start out at the canopied bus stop at the Trinidad Park & Ride. The driver unfolds the door and I climb the steps carefully, trying not to jolt my right arm which hangs in front of me, bent and cocooned in a brace. With my left hand I feed a $10 bill into the ticket-reader and the machine spits out a multi-ride pass. It’s a better deal than paying per ride, and I can use it on the Mainline ($1.75 per ride versus $2.75), on Eureka Transit (85 cents instead of $1.20) and on the other bus systems in the county for similar discounts. The bus gains speed as it heads south, past green and more green, a dog sniffing in the grass, the blue-shining Little River, grassy dunes, swooping Hammond Trail, shock-bright yellow scotch broom and spiky mounds of yellow bush lupine. At the McKinleyville Shopping Center stop, two women — the younger in a wheelchair — wait on the sidewalk while the driver lowers the lift. They get on the lift, and then the older woman and the driver strap down the wheelchair, chatting nonstop about the weather while the woman in the chair smiles broadly and repeats, excitedly, “Hey! Hey! Hi! Hi! Hi! Hey!” The older woman stands behind her chair, her fingers now busy with some knitting. The younger woman is Shannell Jennings. “But everyone calls her Nellie,” says Adrianne Werren, her knitting friend. Werren works with the Redwood Coast Regional Center’s day program, Community Links, for people with developmental disabilities. Four days a week she

and Nellie get on the bus and go somewhere. A lot of it is what Werren calls socialization — to help Nellie and the community get used to each other. Usually they go to Eureka, and a lot of times to Old Town Coffee & Chocolates to feed an addiction to banana waffles. It’s easier to get Nellie and her chair into the bus than into a car, Werren tells me. For nine years Nellie’s ridden the bus, four with Werren, and together they’ve made a lot of “bus buddies.” “Everybody loves Nellie,” says the driver. But it’s possible not everybody knows that the cheerful-shy woman with the sun-bringing smile knits baby hat-andbooties sets and sells them at the Storks Nest in McKinleyville. They’re called Nellie’s Knits. Nellie has cerebral palsy and also is missing her left hand, so Werren helps her with a method called hand-over-hand knitting. You might know Werren, actually — she’s the rabbit-hair knitter who has a booth at the Arcata Farmers’ Market. We pass a field loaded with goats and enter the highway.

And, says Pratt, as ridership has exploded and more stops have been added, the schedule has metamorphosed into a tightly knit web. That leaves drivers little time to take their breaks and makes it hard to insert a new route. Eureka’s system offers another kind of frustration. In Eureka, the buses run in loops — not in straight, back-and-forth

Trips Eureka Transit and Mainline buses each make per day

Mainline dashes through small cities and countryside, a rural-urban thread strung between Trinidad and Scotia, with stops at all the towns and cities in between and at Humboldt State University and College of the Redwoods. Another Redwood Transit bus line runs up to Willow Creek from Arcata. And several other bus systems radiate out from or extend the Mainline — Arcata & Mad River Transit System, Eureka Transit Service, and the Southern Humboldt Intercity and Southern Humboldt Local transits — those last two overlapping in service. Most of the systems are overseen by the Humboldt Transit Authority, a joint-powers operation formed in 1975 by Humboldt County, Eureka, Arcata, Fortuna, Rio Dell and Trinidad. In 2001, the Willow Creek run was added. In 2010 the Southern Humboldt systems were added, replacing the “Quail” system that had picked people up door-to-door in SoHum and brought them to Fortuna or Eureka. The authority doesn’t oversee Arcata’s system, although it maintains its buses. Blue Lake Rancheria operates its own system. Redwood Transit by far handles the most passengers — during fiscal year 201213, it logged 583,638 passenger-trips, Greg Pratt, general manager of the Humboldt Transit Authority, told me. In the same time period, Eureka Transit logged 236,176 passenger-trips, Southern Humboldt Intercity 20,438, Southern Humboldt Local 12,053 and Willow Creek 19,338. Pratt said ridership on the Mainline, which was around 400,000 in 2007, jumped in 2008 when fuel prices soared, mirroring a national trend, and it continues to rise. The Jack Pass (funded by student fees) lets Humboldt State University students ride for free on Redwood Transit,


Redwood Transit’s

Arcata and Eureka buses. When school is in session, Pratt said, the buses are at capacity. Ridership also peaks on the first day of the month, when more people take the bus to cash their assistance checks. It’s been getting harder to accommodate growth, Pratt admits. And that’s largely because, he said, “the Mainline schedule has no real structure to it.” Just look at one of the long rectangles

lines like the buses in the other systems. “The loop system is not ideal,” says Pratt. “It’s good for coverage, but it’s not really passenger friendly.” Some of these irritating quirks are going to change, says Pratt. Soon. Since April, a committee has been working on a new structure for the Mainline’s schedule that it hopes to have ready for public scrutiny this fall. Then the authority will produce new maps for the region and for each system. “Our goal is to set hour headways,” Pratt says. “So, if you’re in McKinleyville, you can get a bus every hour. Northbound and southbound between HSU and CR — which is the main ridership — the bus will run every half hour. Trinidad we’re still working on, but it would be more than one hour between buses. Northbound and southbound between Fortuna and CR would be every hour. And Rio Dell, Scotia, we haven’t come up with that yet.” In the meantime, there have already been improvements. There’s free WiFi on Redwood Transit, Willow Creek and SoHum buses. And signs are being posted at major stops showing passengers how to text to find out the real-time bus arrival (the buses now have GPS tracking). That’s handy if it’s raining, say, and you don’t want to wait at the stop until you really have to.

I had seen the three friends earlier in the day, around noon, chatting and laughing and looking at their phones inside the Starbucks in Fortuna. Now, in the mid-afternoon when I get on the northbound bus at the 11th and N stop, they’re on the bus, too, sitting in one of the long

rows of side-facing seats. I sit opposite them. All of the other passengers are keeping to themselves, staring at devices or straight ahead. I study the mind-yourown-business sign above their heads. Ah, what the hell. I ask the three friends where they’re going. They laugh, and say they just texted each other about how they saw me earlier in Starbucks. “We’re going to a tattoo shop in Eureka,” says the one on the left with long brown hair. She’s Courtney Borgelin, 19, who’s cheerfully talkative. Blonde-haired Cheyenne Andersen, 18, sitting in the middle, just smiles and looks at her phone a lot. Rachel Caywood, who also has long brown hair, is fairly chatty too. Borgelin’s the one getting a tattoo — her first. “I’m really nervous,” she says. It’ll be the infinity symbol, on her wrist. “The idea stemmed from a bad break up, in December. It’s to remember that things don’t last and to appreciate something while you have it because it will not always be there.” The three live in Fortuna and have been friends for 12 years. They all go to College of the Redwoods: Caywood’s studying to be a nurse, Borgelin to be a preschool teacher and Andersen, for now, to be a phlebotomist. They all work. Borgelin slings coffee and is also learning to deal cards at a casino. Andersen does fast food and sells western gear. And Caywood works in a retirement home and a pizza joint. And they’re all saving up their money to buy cars. Borgelin’s hankering after a green, extended cab Toyota Tacoma. “We can go camping at the river when you get your continued on next page

An Uplifting (But Cautionary) Tale By Barry Evans


rite of passage for a girl is, I understand, putting on her first bra. The equivalent life event for a boy, of course, is the removal thereof, once he’s figured out how to undo the hook-and-eye catch (extra points for onehanded and in the dark). Somehow we survive these early experiences, and the fact that most women wear bras is as unremarkable as brushing our teeth. Bras have been around at least since ancient Roman times, in the form of wool or linen breast bands (in Latin, mastodesmos). Recently, two modern-looking bras were found in a stash of medieval garments in an old castle in Austria. Dated to 1450, they’re similar to “longline” (corset-style) bras, with shoulder straps and eyelets for fastening at the back with string. Etymologically, bra, short for brassière, was once French for an underbodice, coming from bracière, Old French for a military arm (bras in French) protector. This evolved into a soldier’s breastplate, and later into a women’s corset. Despite the ubiquity of bras today, several concerns have been raised about them over the past 20 years, including: Back pain: 100 women who complained of back pain were invited to stop wearing their bras for two weeks, according to a five-year study published in 2000 in the professional journal Clinical Study of Pain. With no weight on their shoulders, most participants experienced pain relief, and three years later, 79% of them had stopped wearing a bra altogether “to remove breast weight from the shoulder permanently because it rendered them symptom free.” Incorrect fit: Researchers checked the bra sizes of large-breasted women requesting mammoplasty (breast reduction) in an investigation published in 2002 in the British Journal of Plastic Surgery. Of the 102 women in the study, all were wearing incorrect bra sizes: on average the cups were three sizes


too large and the bands four inches too small. According to the researchers, “obesity, breast hypertrophy [extreme enlargement], fashion and bra-fitting practices combine to make those women who most need supportive bras the least likely to get accurately fitted bras.” Additionally, bras come with matching cups, despite some 25% of women having breasts that differ by one or more cup sizes. (The left breast is usually the larger.) Breast sag: Several studies conducted at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire, Besançon, France, have shown that bras actually contribute to breast sagging, rather than alleviate it. Professor Jean-Denis Rouillon, for instance, followed the anatomy of 330 women over 15 years. Some wore bras, some didn’t. He concluded that bras cause the chest muscles supporting the breast to partially atrophy. “Medically, physiologically, anatomically — breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity,” he said in an interview in the British Telegraph newspaper. The breasts of women who normally went braless sagged three inches less, on average, than those wearing bras. Another long-term Swedish study led by Professor Göran Samsioe of Lund University determined that bras hampered the natural development of breastsupporting elastic tissue, stating, “If natural movement is restricted by a bra that is too tight, it can affect the growth of these tissues ... there is no medical reason for [bras] and in some cases it can even be harmful.” Given our culture’s aversion to seeing breasts (and nipples) move naturally under clothing, these findings are unlikely to lead to a sea change in bra-wearing. One can hope, however, that smart medicine will one day outvote the dictates of fashion and modesty. Barry Evans ( chooses not to believe the urban legend that the bra was invented by Otto Titzling (say it aloud).

bocce ball courts at larson park in arcata. photos by Rees Hughes

The Joys of Bocce Easy to learn and intrinsically social, the game is on a roll By Rees Hughes


got the ball rolling by just showing up at the Larson Park Bocce Ball courts in Arcata one Saturday morning. Intending only to watch, I was surprised when John, Dave and Rochelle invited me to join them. As I soon learned, playing with four is much preferred to any other combination, even if the fourth is a total novice. “Anybody can play,” was among the first things that Dave said to me about bocce ball. “You can be a young kid or 93 years old and barely able to walk from the car.” Dave put himself in the latter category (although he’s not 93). The rules are simple, the game requires minimal equipment, and physical strength and agility are almost immaterial. Fundamentally, bocce ball involves rolling grapefruit-sized balls — typically made of wood, metal or high-density plastic — as close to a target as possible. In the constellation of games, they don’t get much simpler than that. Egyptians were playing a similar game with polished rocks as early as 5000 BC, according to the Collegium Cosmicum ad Buxeas, which bills itself as “the preeminent international organization for the sport of bocce.” Later, coconuts were used and eventually carved wooden balls. The game evolved

under the influence of the Greeks and later the Romans, eventually spreading throughout Europe. The version first played in America was an English variation called bowis, from the French boule, meaning ball. Contemporary variations include pétanque in France and lawn bowling, or simply bowls, in England. But what once may have been the province of immigrants has been embraced by Americans from all walks of life. So it seemed that sunny Saturday morning. The courts, which were added to Larson Park in 2011 and offer equipment and lanes to rent, filled quickly. Specialized brushes and heavy rollers were used to groom the long lanes of finely crushed shell. Much-loved canvas and leather bags were unzipped and the colored bocci (or balls) were placed on the courts. Tape measures lay on the side rails near the center, and chairs were arranged around the perimeter. Steady laughter and conversation revealed the importance of the game’s social aspect. When I asked my long-time friend and bocce ball enthusiast Johnny how he would characterize the game he said simply, “friendly.” Play begins when a small white ball (known as a pallino, boccino or jack) is tossed toward the far end of the 90-foot

court. If four people are playing, they split into two teams with a player from each team standing at either end of the court. The team that threw the pallino bowls first, trying to roll a ball as close to it as possible. Then the other team tries to roll one of its own bocci even closer. From there, the team that does not have the ball closest to the pallino keeps rolling until it does manage to get one closer, and so on until both teams are out of balls. That marks the end of one round. Only the team with the ball nearest the pallino can score, and that team gets a point for each ball that’s closer to the pallino than its opponent’s closest ball. There are some additional rules, but within five minutes even a raw rookie can fully understand play. We played to 12 points but that varies. Players throw with an underarm motion, and I saw as many subtle variations as there were people present — crouching to release the bocce smoothly; spinning; banking off the wooden bumpers. And in my case, praying. Most good players, I was told, are straight bowlers. But I found rolling a straight ball easier said than done. I quickly came to understand the complexity of the strategy involved, and once again I appreciated the difference between understanding the tactics and actually executing them. Some of the players exhibited real finesse. Most of us depended on luck. In fact, Johnny’s bocce mantra appears to be, “It‘s better to be lucky than good.” Thank goodness. That gave me hope. We played three games that first morning. The sun was out. The day was beautiful. I returned on a subsequent Saturday and managed to insert myself into the same threesome. And again a few days later with some friends and their 9-yearold daughter. Each time the results were the same. We had a great time and I don’t remember who won. Not surprisingly, there are a number of

variations on the game and many layers of understanding. The official sport has its own language with terms like casino, giro, punto, raffa, volo and morra. Those less beholden to convention can purchase lighted balls that let you play at night or abandon the more predictable surface of bocce courts for the unfettered world of beaches or lawns. For purists (or at least those of us interested in limiting the variables that impact our game) courts abound in Humboldt County. You’ll find them in Trinidad, Rio Dell, Ferndale, Blue Lake and many places in between. There is generally a game at the McKinleyville courts Saturday mornings and in Cutten Saturday afternoons. There seem to be frequent tournaments, too, such as the recent Richard Bettis Memorial Scholarship Fund Bocce Tournament in Rio Dell and the Italian Festival tourney sponsored by the Eureka Order of the Sons of Italy. Since much of the bocce community depends upon the energy of volunteers — whether it’s to groom and monitor the courts or organize tournaments and leagues (there are none currently) — there’s often relatively short notice about special events. Visit one of the courts and ask around. At the conclusion of my first bocce experience, I came home charmed by the culture of the game. Somewhere I heard that the game is so much about friendship and conviviality that bocce even means “kiss” in Italian — a falsehood I repeated several times before being gently corrected. Bocce, I found out, actually means “bowls.” Baci means “kiss,” which explains why it’s the term used when a ball nestles up and touches the pallino. I still like my translation better. l If you would like to write a Get Out! Column, please email Journal editor Carrie Peyton Dahlberg at • North Coast Journal • Thursday, July 18, 2013

Athens’ Futurebirds has played with Drive-By Truckers, Widespread Panic and Alabama Shakes, and are now touring in support of their new album, “Baba Yaga.” You can immerse yourself in Futurebirds’ distinctive sonic textures at — any band with a song called “Johnny Utah” gets props from the start, and the band’s press release promises a “primal, sweat-soaked” live show. The music’s lovely as is, and it should be interesting to see how the wistfulness of the songs transforms into a more primitive performance. Show starts at 9:30 p.m., cost is $10.

Folklife festival frolics onward

This week may well be Humboldt County’s summer zenith. The Crabs are still in full swing, the sun appears determined to shine, gardens burst with berries and zucchinis (oh, so many zucchinis!) and the Humboldt Folklife Festival continues its merry Blue Lake existence. Thursday night is the ever-popular Bluegrass and Beyond Night. Sometimes called “country music for Democrats,” bluegrass has long been a Humboldt County staple, which is why we have musicians who are so darn good at it. The line-up features Cory Goldman and Colin Vance, Raisin’ Grain, No Good Redwood Ramblers and Compost Mountain Boys. Cost is $10/$8 for Humboldt Folklife Society members. Advance tickets recommended. Friday night is another extremely popular event, the Humboldt Folklife Festival Barn Dance – people love these

hoedowns and the fabulous Striped Pig Stringed Band. This one’s at the Arcata Veterans Hall and starts at 7:30 p.m. Cost is $7/$6 HFS members. Saturday brings one of my favorite celebrations of the year — the all-day Humboldt Folklife Festival Free Fest, full of music on various stages, workshops, kid activities and, because it’s Blue Lake, quite likely sunshine. Complete info on the festival at

Fish, counted! Time to party

In Humboldt, we’re never short of ways to combine good beer and good causes. This week’s highlight takes place Friday when the Mad River Alliance hosts a party at, appropriately, the Mad River Tap Room from 5:30 to 9 p.m. The nonprofit is celebrating the completion of the summer’s steelhead survey, which included over 20 divers examining 75 miles of the Mad River. Attendees can get a sense of what that’s like watching noted local underwater videog Thomas Dunklin’s subsurface Dirty Cello courtesy of the band video. Musically speaking, Spindrift and Kingfoot provide the tunes.

Keep the pleasure, lose the guilt

Saturday night requires a decision, but in either case, the theme is guilty pleasures. If you feel like a Eureka dance party, wow, is there ever a dance party!

DJs Mantea$e, JAYMORG, King Maxwell, mattsansadam and La Dolce Video’s DJ Danny Glover promise Nelly, Major Lazer, Beyoncé, Peaches and maybe some Mariah Carey, if you’re lucky. The pleasure of dancing at Eureka’s Palm Lounge will outweigh any guilt — promise. Cost is $3, the grooving heats up around Chandler and Benoit. photo by Wendy Corn 9 p.m. and tickets are available at Missing Link Records.

Sunday cello sirens

This sounds promising. Have you been to the Siren’s Song yet? The only drawback is if you’re not a beer drinker, then beverage options are limited — but the ship-themed décor feels right at home in our Victorian seaport and the couches are comfy, all which leads to why you might want to consider Dirty Cello’s free show there Sunday evening. Led by cellist Rebecca Roudman, who has shared the stage with everyone from Elvis Costello to Carlos Santana and Ry Cooder to Joan Baez, Dirty Cello mixes, in the band’s own words, “virtuosic classical playing with the soul of blues, and the fire of gypsy music. Think B.B. King meets Yo-Yo Ma.”

This sounds strange-cool

Yee Ha! The Fortuna Rodeo is on, so saddle up for some ropin’, wranglin’ and ridin’. For those of us not quite ready to climb onto a bronco, the carnival is going all week long with rides and a midway right in Rohner Park ($25 for all-day wrist bands). On Thursday, the Junior Rodeo continues with young cowpokes competing at the Rodeo Grounds in Rohner Park, along with barrel racing afterward ($3, $1 children 6-12, free for kids under 6). At 6:30 you have full permission to stare at firefighters during the Fireman’s Games on Main Street (free). That means lots of sloshing buckets and speed drills as crews from all over the county test their skills. Friday revs up with Motorsports Night at the rodeo grounds at 6 p.m. ($5). Motocross jumper Julian D’usseau will be soaring, spinning and otherwise defying gravity on his bike. ATV racing and the infamous Quadiators should provide plenty of thrills and spills. In the Quadiator competition, passengers on each quad have balloons on their helmets and foam-covered bats — the goal is to whack other riders’ balloons, and it goes pretty much how you would think.

Wake up for pancakes with the Fortuna Kiwanis Club on Saturday (7 a.m., $6, $4 for kids under 12) and carbo-load for the 5K run/ walk at 9 a.m. All proceeds go to Relay for Life, and you can always rest while you watch the “Ridin’ with the Red, White and Blue” parade go by on Main Street at noon. The rodeo kicks up again at the rodeo grounds at 2 p.m. ($7, $3 for kids under 12), followed by the new Bands, Bulls and Brews event at 8 p.m. The Roadmasters and The Delta Nationals play in between bouts of bull ridin’ and a round of “Cowboy Poker,” in which fellas sit down to a game of cards in a ring with an angry bull. Last one to leave the table takes the pot. Sunday’s barbecue in Rohner Park at 11 a.m. promises to be full of live music and red meat. For $12, get a heap of deep pit barbecued beef and a pile of sides — what? You did a 5K yesterday. Chow down. Then head back to the rodeo grounds for one last day of spurjangling rodeo fun. Happy trails. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill • North Coast Journal • Thursday, July 18, 2013

Corner of 14th & G Streets. Near Wildberries and only two blocks from HSU.

In May, when Jessicurl founder/world music DJ Jessica McGuinty underwent heart surgery and our own lovable Arts and Entertainment Editor/Music Guru Bob Doran had a stroke, many people asked if there was anything they could do. After all, recovery can be tough, and medical bills ain’t cheap. The good news iws that both lovely people are bouncing back, and there is something you can do. You can get down to good music, laugh and bid on things for yourself at the “Back on Their Feet” benefit concert for Jessica and Bob. The show, brought to you by The Arcata Eye and the Journal, is at HumBrews on Thursday, July 25 at 8 p.m. Go ahead and write it down; we’ll wait. Stomp your boots and whoop it up with The Trouble and Gunsafe, both fresh from the stages of the Humboldt Folklife Festival. Don’t sit down, though, because Missing Link DJs Matt & Adam will have lots of vinyl with Campton Road, Eureka. Dancing for people in their 50s and older, with live music featuring tunes from the 1930s-50s. $4. 725-5323.

Local comedy diva Sherae O’Shaughnessy is hosting the evening, and our own Kim Hodges, also of the Ba-Dum-Chh comedy troupe, will be encouraging us all to chuckle inappropriately. That’s plenty of funny. Then there’s the silent auction with all kinds of tickets, goodies, services and even artwork from Center Arts, Baroni, 3 Foods, Renata’s Creperie, Darius Brotman, Robert Goodman Winery, Garden Gate and more. Rex Bohn will also be calling a live auction. Check out the growing list on our A&E Blog. You’re such a giver — treat yourself to something pretty. Interested in donating?

Where’s Waldo? Guys in Arcata with chunky glasses and knit caps are a dime a dozen, but finding this guy pays off. This month in Arcata, 24 paper Waldo figures from Martin Handford’s Where’s Waldo? illustrated hide-and-seek books have been stashed all over local shops. Hunt them down and you could end up with a cache of prizes. Remember how fun it was to pore over those crowd pictures — both engrossing and claustrophobic — searching for the skinny guy in the red and white stripes? Go ahead and crack open a copy or look for an image online. You can’t resist looking for him. Waldo, the lanky world traveler who actually learned to blend in with the natives and taught a generation how to obsess, is back. But where? Pick up a “passport” at any participating store (Northtown Books has a bunch) and get a stamp for every Waldo you find. When you bring your passport back to Northtown, 10 stamps get you a sticker and a coupon, and 20 get you in on a drawing for the grand prize on July 31, which includes, among other things, a big, fat box set of Where’s Waldo? Naturally. The manhunt is on in independent bookstores all over the country to promote shopping locally, and both children and adults in Arcata have already started filling their passports up with stamps. So grab the kids and start looking. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

By now you’ve seen After Earth, or you’ve heard the epithets tossed its way: boring, turgid, narcissistic, M. Night Shyamalan. About the only nice thing anyone can say about the Will Smith vanity project (currently sitting at a cool 11 percent positive rating on meta-critic site is that it co-stars some purty redwoods. Of course, After Earth isn’t the first flick to feature our fair county. And, surprisingly, it may not be the worst. We dredged up some other made-inHumboldt stinkers, along with their Rotten Tomatoes stats, so you wouldn’t have to. You’re welcome. Halloween III: SeaSon of tHe wItcH (1982) the plot: The third installment of the Halloween franchise ditches iconic killer Michael Myers for a bunch of muddled nonsense about pagan rituals. Sort of like replacing Michael Jordan with Toni Kukoc. Key Humboldt location: You don’t realize how creepy Loleta is until you see it standing in for the town of “Santa Mira,” home of the Silver Shamrock Novelties factory, which makes a helluva lot more than cheese. critical consensus: 35 percent positive JennIfer 8 (1992) the plot: A Los Angeles cop (Andy Garcia, “fresh” off The Godfather: Part III) escapes to a small town and soon finds himself on the trail of a killer who blah, blah, blah … Key Humboldt location: Most movies pretend Humboldt is somewhere else (a post-apocalyptic hellscape, a remote Costa Rican island, the place where Dustin Hoffman chases that monkey). This one actually name-drops Eureka. Thanks … a lot. critical consensus: 35 percent positive

almoSt HeroeS (1998) the plot: No-brow “comedy” about two moronic explorers (Matthew Perry from Friends and an extrabloated Chris Farley in his final film role) trying to beat Lewis and Clark to the westward punch.

live music live music Blitzen Trapper Standing on the burnished hardwood floor, surrounded by the laughter and chitchat of the waiting crowd, I try to imagine what the Humbrews vat room looked like before they turned it into such a classy show space. The show was supposed to start at 9:30, but in true rock ‘n’ roll fashion, it’s now 10 and the amps are still silent. No one seems bothered by the delay; with two bars, people seem content to wait. By the time the opening band, The Quiet Ones, takes the stage, only half of the attendees have actually filed into the show space. The rest are still at their tables, finishing their pitchers and hot wings and waiting for the real reason they’re here: Blitzen Trapper. Blitzen has been relatively silent since the success of its 2008 album Furr. The band released another album, Destroyer of the Void, in 2010, however, its sophomore effort on the Sub Pop label received considerably less public attention. Their Portland-based, alternativesouthern rock sound doesn’t often flow well with the rest of radio programming (think Wilco, but faster and with more songs about guns). The new album, American Goldwing, has fewer melodic moments than the band’s previous records, and it’s a lot more hard-hitting. These guys may not be radio-friendly, but, damn, they put on a fun live show. The band bounced back and forth between acoustic and electric, alternating between soulful and reckless rock. Though there is always a country twinge to its sound, Blitzen is a refreshing dose of rock ‘n’ roll when compared to most of the banjo-laden indie rock out there these days. Don’t take that the wrong way; I have nothing but love for the banjo, the mandolin and the steel guitar, but sometimes you just want to hear an electric guitar wail and scream. I can’t be the only hipster who is tired of tapping their toes and nodding their head. I want to dance, dammit. The majority of the concert crowd feels the same way, apparently. Sweaters have been taken off, beers have been set to the side (except for that one guy who’s spilled his everywhere), and people are generally letting loose. The rug-cutting does not go unnoticed by Drew Laughery, the band’s keyboardist and supplier of comic relief. “Dancing crowds are the best,” he says between songs. “Footloose was right.” Blitzen Trapper is a small enough band, in the sense of commercial success, that the band members work their own merch table. I buy a BT T-shirt from the back-up guitarist. This band is a large sound in a small package; I’d see Blitzen again in a heartbeat. — Dev Richards • North Coast Journal • Thursday, July 18, 2013

The Idiocracy is Upon Us

The Sandler sequel is so bad it’s insulting, but del Toro’s monsters are fun John J. Bennett


GROWN UPS 2. Two years ago, when I watched Jack and Jill, it occurred to me that Adam Sandler movies are kind of unassailable. They don’t break any new ground and they’re not consistently funny, but he and his buddies seem to have fun making them, and they seem generally good-hearted. But this new one is so unfunny, so disingenuous in its pandering, so unpleasant that this review serves as a retraction. Sandler’s career started to take off just as my sense of comedy was forming. His SNL characters, his comedy records, his first few big movies are all vital signposts on my highway of what’s funny. That being said, I’ve never been an apologist: Much of that early work, which I loved so at the time, has grown seamy and center-less with age. Still, the guy’s a major figure in comedy and a genuine talent with the ability, occasionally, to do great things. Those things are usually the work of other writer/directors (Punch-Drunk Love, Funny People), but

they wouldn’t be what they are without Sandler’s singular presence. Up to this point I’ve quietly appreciated that Sandler’s been able to build himself a little media empire without having to compromise himself. I don’t necessarily share his crew’s love of scatological humor or their bizarre fear/ disdain of homosexuality, but the ticketbuying public certainly does. And financial success has allowed Hollywood to become Happy Madison’s dream factory, with these stupid Grown Ups movies as the flagship models. (Full disclosure: I’ve not seen the first installment.) Sandler plays Lenny Feder, an Adam Sandler type who hits it big in the movies. As the character himself points out, he’s inexplicably married to a gorgeous, intelligent woman (the incomparable Salma Hayek). Tired of Hollywood, he moves the family back to his hometown where he reconnects with his well-intentioned, idiotic high school cronies. Eric (Kevin James) owns an auto body shop, has a disconcertingly clingy relationship with his mother and is, of course, married to an incongruously attractive woman (Maria Bello). Kurt (Chris Rock) works as an installer for the cable company. Marcus (David Spade) doesn’t seem to do much of anything, beyond licking the bicep of a bulked-up female bodybuilder and trying to relate to the teenaged son he previously didn’t know he had. They’re just a bunch of Average Joes working it out with their families and facing middle age together; it’s total bullshit. The guys playing these parts are all extremely wealthy, and they got that way because they tell jokes, not because they’re great actors. So to see them pretend to be working-class guys who might struggle to make the mortgage feels

dishonest and a little insulting. The script doesn’t even attempt any legitimate character development or authenticity: It’s just a blank canvas on which the actors paint their uninspired pictures. This is, without hyperbole, the closest I have ever come to walking out of a movie theater. The impulse to flee set in during the first frame, and I actively fought it for the following 101 minutes. PG-13. PACIFIC RIM. It seems like the press surrounding Pacific Rim has more to do with its “underperformance” at the box office than the content of the movie. Which is a pity, because co-writer/director/monster-master Guillermo del Toro has once again taken on genre convention and won handily. He did it with vampire movies (Blade 2), underdog comic book superhero adaptations (Hellboy), and Spanish Civil War/coming of age/ultraviolent/magical realism fairy tales (Pan’s Labyrinth). Now he’s gone even bigger, inventing a whole new type of monster for humanity to contend with. In the world of Pacific Rim, 2013 marks the beginning of a decade-long conflict with nefarious, intelligent leviathans from another dimension. Called Kaiju, they emerge from a crevasse in the ocean floor with ever-increasing frequency, making landfall to destroy major cities. The nations of the world band together, pooling their resources to build a line of defense. The result is the Jaeger project, a collection of giant hand-to-hand combat robots piloted by small teams of soldiers conjoined by neural networking. Initially, the Jaegers are devastatingly successful at stopping the Kaiju, but the enemies’ intelligence and adaptation eventually render the weapons obsolete. Years later, a stalwart commander (Idris Elba) assembles a crack team of Jaeger pilots for a Hail Mary attempt at wiping out the big bad sea beasties. Pacific Rim sees del Toro working with his biggest budget ever, so it’s not surprising that the visual effects are so damn good. The movie’s got an incredible number of process shots, but the attention to detail is stunning and those shots never succumb to the “so real it looks fake” tendency of so many contemporary effects movies. Equally important: Del Toro is a real director, by which I mean a real storyteller. So even though he had a nine-figure bankroll, he never loses sight of the story’s vital aspects. The principal characters are multi-dimensional and thoughtfully developed; the actors inhabit those characters with intelligence and sensitivity; the narrative holding together the gigantic action sequences moves along with consistent, measured intention. This is the sort of movie that deserves to be a blockbuster. It’s a big loud mon-

ster movie, sure. But it also has a heart and a brain, and it’s deeply compelling. PG13. 132m. — John J. Bennett

The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to satisfy the obligation secured by said Deed of Trust. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any shown herein. Trustor: Uwe Saler and Kathleen A.

Humboldt County Records. No warranty is made that any or all of the personal property still exists or is available for the successful bidder, and no warranty is made as to the condition of any of the personal property, which shall be sold as is, where is’. 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 will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. 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. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call the trustee’s information line at 530-246-2727 or visit this Internet Web site:, using the file number assigned to this case: TS # 13-1932. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site.
