Editor: As noted in Ryan Burns’ excellent article (“Run Out on a Rail,” July 25), Dave Tranberg is legal counsel to the Humboldt County Association of Governments (HCAOG). I believe that this relationship is one of the major causes behind the whole Mayors’ City Selection Committee (MCSC) affair. For background: Through an old arrangement with Humboldt County, HCAOG staff was given the designation “Deputy Clerks of the Board” which allowed the administration of the independent MCSC to be transferred to HCAOG. But no funding was provided so the MCSC’s expenses are absorbed through the HCAOG budget. HCAOG staff brought this issue forward at its June meeting recommending HCAOG give up this designation and its responsibility to the MCSC, and the board voted to direct staff to approach the county on this matter as soon as possible. Now Burns correctly referenced Tranberg’s opinion that the original appointment was probably legal but that it couldn’t hurt to have the MCSC hold a revote “just so any aggrieved parties (such as Bertain) had no legal ground to stand on.” However, Burns omitted what I believe are two important facts. The first is that Bertain’s letter included the not-so-veiled threat of legal action (“I would hope litigation can be avoided regarding this matter”). And second is that Tranberg qualified his opinion by noting that any legal action would most likely cause delay in HCAOG’s goal to shed its unrelated MCSC responsibilities. Overall, Tranberg’s actions and recommendations are probably the correct ones to make if you are the attorney for HCAOG, which is the case here. However, I speculate on what the outcome might have been if the MCSC had had an attorney of its own. Perhaps there would not have been a second meeting so that Alex Stillman would still be the representative to the North Coast Railroad Authority today. Sherman Schapiro, Blue Lake Editor: A reading of “Run Out on a Rail” leaves one wondering why the NCRA still exists. We saw: Delusional board members and supporters cling tightly to the fantasy that the stretch of railroad line with its tunnels, bridges, and culverts that runs through the Eel River Canyon (see a river view of the enormity of the repair work needed at watch?v=RhCjYNKXNvk) can be restored, maintained and operated profitably; an irrational rejection of compromise on a widely supported proposal to put the

Train Talk

Humboldt Bay stretch of rail bed — essentially unused and steadily deteriorating — to use as a “rail to trail” trail until a need for a commercial use becomes viable; and a disgraceful lack of oversight and accountability. We, the public, have sat for too long on our outrage, allowing the NCRA to waste taxpayers’ dollars defending policies that have no relevance, delivering no benefits to us in Humboldt County and defiantly ignoring local public input. Enough is enough. I am going to be asking my state legislators to explore and hopefully author legislation that will remove Humboldt County from the NCRA and assign authority over the maintainable section of railway in Humboldt to a new governing body that is more accountable to the public and has an appreciation for the circumstances, constraints and opportunities our community has to live with, and hope others will too. An online petition to Assemblyman Chesbro and Senator Evans asking for their leadership in this matter would allow them to gauge public support for taking legislative action. The NCRA would be a comfortable fit in a Soviet Union era Iron Curtain country’s bureaucracy; Humboldt County wants and deserves better. This message needs to be delivered to Wes and Noreen. Jud Ellinwood, Eureka

(“Media Maven,” July 25 and this week’s “Blog Jammin’,” page 10) has prompted a response. I find his arrogance appalling. His using his giving back to the community as an excuse is in fact inexcusable. I give back in my own small way and do not expect to be awarded for bad behavior because I do so. His accusations of intolerance are amazing to me, for all those reasons stated by other letter writers. He made a mistake, he needed to own it immediately. He should have removed himself from the school board and then the community would have moved on. He did not in any way take responsibility for his actions, only attempted an apology before a meeting and blames everyone else for his error in judgment. These are not attributes I want my children to think are OK for anyone, be they someone with money or with none. If the board does not remove him, you can be sure I will make every effort to make sure he is not re-elected should he choose to run again. Arrogance, self-importance and an utter lack of responsibility for one’s own actions are not what I want in someone who is on a school governing board. Mr. Johnson is no better than anyone else no matter how “much” he “gives” to our community and should be treated the same as you or I would have been under than same circumstances. Jana Genelly, Arcata Editor: David McCullough Jr.’s speech that Dan Johnson plagiarized for Arcata High School’s commencement speech was very popular on the right a couple of years ago because it addressed the coddling that many see as rampant in education specifically and society more generally. Isn’t it ironic then that the school board has decided to change its own policies instead of levying any penalty on Mr. Johnson?

Note that in the board trustees’ statement on July 26, the only response to the plagiarism is to “appreciate” Mr. Johnson’s apology and to only lightly chastise him for the tardiness of his apology. In a just world (or county), Mr. Johnson would have been dismissed instead of adding any more bureaucratic hoops for the board to jump through. We don’t need more bureaucracy to police elected representatives to behave appropriately, we need elected representatives that know how to behave. And to reply directly to Mr. Johnson: Don’t play the victim. This is not about your intelligence, we both know you are very “smart” as evidenced by your successful business career. This is about right and wrong and paying attention (not “good and evil” by the way). As Mr. McCullough advised his audience in the same speech, we all should “develop and protect a moral sensibility and demonstrate the character to apply it.” Did you use that sentence in your speech? Jon Yalcinkaya, Eureka Editor: Talk about “Much Ado About Nothing” (Shakespeare). The current flap regarding Northern Humboldt Union High School District trustee Dan Johnson’s graduation speech, and all the negative ink it has caused, leaves me disappointed in what some people really value and think is important. Kathleen Marshall (“Mailbox,” July 25) claims that she expected the district to understand “the seriousness of the issue.” “As I see it, the public is rightfully outraged,” she writes. Damn right, I’m outraged! Pray tell, who was harmed, in any way, by Mr. Johnson’s very innocent omission, as opposed by commission, of the authorship of some of his graduation remarks? Who would clamor for his resignation based on this bit of inane trivia? It appears that Marcy Burstiner agrees with Ms. Marshall. She would have the public believe that “plagiarism is serious, ...

is a job-ender, ... is a no-no” and is a deadly sin, breaking the Seventh Commandment. Jesus is reported to have said, in so many words, “those without sin, cast the first stone.” (John 8:7.) Were the contents of his words acceptable, even if plagiarized? Some liked the speech, others didn’t, for various reasons. Opinions are like belly-buttons. Everybody has one. In my opinion, Dan Johnson is a good person, eager to give back to his community by his service as a trustee, and supportive of many worthy efforts, including Arcata youths, HSU softball, and others, selflessly using his time, talent and money to better our community. Ms. Burstiner attempts to cast an ugly innuendo that his membership to the board is somehow tainted. His persistence to serve should be applauded rather than degraded. As he admits, he is not a college grad, nor is he perfect. Give the guy a break or cast the first stone. Art Jones, Blue Lake

Claim Questions Editor: It’s reassuring that the city doesn’t cave in to every threatened lawsuit (“Staking a Claim,” July 25). But I wonder how many claimants are paid to go away. A most prominent example being a former county counsel who walked away with $289,000 of our taxpayer money. And we never were told what that was all about (seeing the person was a female, I’m guessing sexual harassment was alleged). As for $4 million being paid out in the Cotton case, how much did the lawyer get? It must have substantial or she wouldn’t have driven/flown up here. Looking on the bright side, at least it wasn’t Gloria Allred! Richard Brown, Eureka

Bus Tales Editor: I enjoyed the article “Another One Rides the Bus” (July 18) and would like to add my experience. Six years ago I gave up owning a car, just to see if I could kick the habit. It went better than I thought and the benefit I hadn’t counted on turned out to be lots of extra free time. Yes the bus takes longer but that’s only part of the picture. I share the use of a car with a friend. We go out together about three times each month and get everything done; Farmer’s Market, laundry, shopping, lunch, etc. In other words, I’m now more efficient at running my errands. I never would have guessed how much of my time I had wasted before ditching the car! I ride the bus or my bike, get rides or walk to and from work, and for pleasure. When I ride the bus, I have time to catch up on reading, do computer work, just rest or socialize. I’ve actually overcome my fear of “street people” and replaced it with a bit more compassion.

Is the bus perfect? No, but neither is car ownership and planning around their schedule isn’t any harder than planning around any other time constraint. I’d like a later schedule to Trinidad but I’m thankful that the Redwood Transit System now runs on Sunday as I can take it to the Crabs game, have that extra beer and feel comfortable that my fleet of designated drivers will take me home safely. There might come a time when I feel the need to own a car, maybe. Until then I couldn’t be more happy with the extra time I have. That’s what I call freedom! Katrina Martin, Trinidad

Support Prisoners Editor: We should support the prison hunger strike (“Blog Jammin’, July 11) going on in California right now! Those who do not know any better scoff at their demands and coldly state “let them starve” but we need to wake up to the deplorable realities of the prison system in our country and in our backyard at Pelican Bay. Just look at the news; California is currently under court order to reduce its prison population because conditions have gotten so bad for inmates. It has just been revealed that hundreds of women have been involuntarily sterilized by California prison doctors, and in the Central Valley inmates have been subjected to abject health conditions and vulnerable to what’s called valley fever. Prisons are necessary to deal with dangerous members of society but they should not be instruments of torture and depravity, especially not in an evolved democracy like the United States where we have outlawed cruel and unusual punishment in our Constitution. Prisoners in the hunger strike are not asking to be released. They are calling for very simple and reasonable reforms centered around ending the use of indefinite solitary confinement, which the United Nations and Amnesty International have called torture. Some inmates at Pelican Bay have been languishing for up to 20 years in solitary without any ability to get out. The hunger strikers simply want to be treated humanely which includes having educational and rehabilitative services alongside access to nutritional food. Our prisons need serious reforms to transition from being purely punitive to actually being in the business of rehabilitation so inmates that want to turn their life around actually have that chance.

one of the longest family-owned farms in Ventura County. Twice we faced the potential that this excellent farmland was in jeopardy, first during the Great Depression, and second, by the ever encroaching industrial development on the outskirts east of Oxnard. In the 1970s the farm was assessed at development value, and our taxes being greater than revenue made us question whether we would be able to continue farming. The 1965 Williamson Act saved us from pressure that caused most of our neighbors to sell their original family farms. Registering under the Williamson Act allowed us to continue to farm the land we love by keeping our property taxes lower at the value of farmland, not at the much higher land developer’s value. We have been fully aware that if we were to sell to developers, we could profit tenfold, but would be obligated to pay all the back taxes we saved during the time under the protection of the act. It’s simple: Continue to farm or pay what is due and reap the windfall of millions of dollars from development. The Tooby Ranch was registered under the Williamson Act at the time Bob McKee purchased it and though he does have the right to develop it, first he is obligated to pay all the back taxes saved during the time the ranch was under the act. Once paid up, he can develop the land to his heart’s content. The rules are simple, either you are in agriculture or you are in development. I believe that if Mr. McKee had followed the rules of the Williamson Act, he would have saved $6 million more and the county could have saved over $3 million. What a waste of time and money! Bob McPherson, Bayside

Editor: While I am appalled and dismayed by Estelle Fennell’s attempted hijacking of the General Plan (“Publisher,” June 13) I am even more disgusted that all but one of the other supervisors supported her audacious power grab. Ms. Fennell’s rewriting of the guiding principles for the county general plan is a slap in the face to the democratic process by which the original guiding principles were determined, and it is a slap in the face to the citizens of this county who have given their time in order to participate in the general plan update process. The fact that the majority of the supervisors were willing to support Ms. Fennell’s power grab clearly shows their lack of respect for the average citizens of this county and for the principles of citizen participation upon which this country was built. Caught red-handed, these supervisors are now insisting that their illegal vote was just a “straw poll,” and they will be holding a meeting to allow the public to weigh in on Sept. 23 from 6 to 9 p.m. I would urge anyone who values democracy and is concerned by the actions of our elected officials to plan to attend this meeting.

Co-op Conflict

Grocery store workers and management clash in contract negotiations By Ryan Burns


anagement and employees of the North Coast Co-op are locked in the most contentious labor negotiations they’ve had in years, and each side is grasping for leverage with the tools at hand. For management that means enlisting the help of Bradley W. Kampas, managing partner of the high-powered law firm Jackson Lewis, which specializes in labor law and union negotiations. Kampas has been on retainer since Co-op employees first unionized 13 years ago, but this is the first time since the original union contract was signed in 2001 that he’s flown up from his San Francisco office to participate directly in negotiations.

Employees, meanwhile, are enlisting Co-op customers in the fight. Last Saturday, a handful of workers gathered in front of the Arcata store and greeted shoppers with clipboards, petitions and free shopping bags emblazoned with pro-worker messages from Local 5 of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union. The petition asked shoppers to pledge support for workers “in their fight to maintain affordable healthcare and living wages ... in the face of unprecedented profitability and productivity.” John Frahm, a former Co-op employee who now leads the union’s local bargaining committee, said every contract negotiacontinued on next page

tion with the Co-op has been a challenge. “But this time it’s definitely different” — partly, he said, because of the presence of Kampas, whose firm has been characterized as a union buster, and partly because of management’s initial proposal. In a July 19 memo to union members, Frahm said it was “unlike any proposal the committee has seen before in negotiations with the Co-op.” He listed details in bullet points, including: a 12 percent decrease in wages for most workers, higher health care premiums and deductibles, reduced dental coverage and stricter attendance policies. “It was kind of a huge slap in the face,” said Kevin Lennox, a grocery clerk at the Eureka store who makes $12.20 per hour after seven years with the Co-op. Lennox is part of the union’s bargaining committee, and he was among the eight or so employees gathering signatures on Saturday. With a wavy flop of hair, wraparound shades and salt-and-pepper stubble, Lennox greeted everyone with a smile. The starting wage for Co-op employees is $8.60 per hour, and within a year they’re up to $10 an hour. That’s more than, say, fast food workers make but less than the wages at local Rite-Aid and Safeway stores, whose employees are represented by the same union. And according to Frahm, Rite-Aid and Safeway offer health care coverage that’s “light years ahead” of the Co-op’s. While Lennox’s pay is well above the state’s $8-per-hour minimum wage, he said he wouldn’t consider it livable for a single parent, and just borderline for someone living on his or her own. Fortunately, his wife works at HSU, so together they have enough to provide for their two kids. And while he doesn’t take advantage of the Co-op’s health care plan (he’s covered through his wife), Lennox acknowledged that it’s a good one. For now, anyway. Unionized employees — of whom there are almost 150 between the two stores — are currently working under an extension of the previous contract, which expired June 30. Co-op General Manager Kelli Reese, who took over for retiring GM David Lippman at the beginning of the year, declined to be interviewed for this story, but late last week she issued a press release offering management’s perspective. It said the Co-op has a longstanding and positive relationship with the union and that the two sides have already reached tentative agreements on a number of issues. But the numbers cited in the press

release seem to contradict those in the union’s memo — as if each side had been attending different meetings. According to the release Reese sent, the Co-op’s opening wage proposal was for a 1 percent annual increase over the three-year term of the contract, and the release said, the union’s opening wage proposal of about 10 percent a year was “neither reasonable nor sustainable.” So which side is telling the truth? Probably both: It’s just a matter of how you portray the math. Co-op employees work under wage scales, getting periodic raises after they’ve worked a certain number of hours. So while management did offer an annual raise of 1 percent, that’s significantly less than the 5 percent annual raise employees get under the current agreement. But don’t get too caught up in those numbers. Typical of such negotiations, neither side expected to get what it asked for in its initial proposal. Management’s press release admits, “We have room for movement.” And Lennox was even blunter. “None of those numbers are real numbers,” he said. In other words, both sides bluff, feeling each other out as they inch toward middle ground. As those negotiations progress, employees may have some extra bargaining chips nestled in the financial books. The Co-op’s profits and losses have fluctuated in recent years. For example, it lost more than $113,000 in the fiscal year ending in March 2011 but managed to turn things around the following year, earning a $25,000 profit. It accomplished this partly by reducing staffing nearly 20 percent, according to Frahm, the union rep. This year, things are looking even better. In the Co-op’s March newsletter, Chief Financial Officer Kelli Costa announced that sales were up 3.3 percent and net income for the first three fiscal quarters had increased by more than $383,480 over the same period last year. And in the July newsletter Reese announced that sales were up in Arcata by 5.4 percent and in Eureka by 8.7 percent. Union negotiators says those profits prove that workers are being more efficient, so they deserve to get a better offer. No doubt managers and their attorney have some numbers of their own. Negotiations are continuing this week, and while both sides say they’re optimistic about reaching an agreement, Frahm said there’s no telling how long it might take. l

Sadie’s Bad Trip


t 3:43 a.m. on a Sunday I am sitting on the sofa in the dark, flanked hip-to-hip by Sadie and Stella, our two Labradors, who joined me when the monkeys woke me up, as they do most nights. The monkeys are an image from a yoga instructor named Cynthia, who told her students to tune out the monkeys in their brains while working toward the Zen state necessary for yoga bliss. The monkeys often distract me, and also wake me in the night. On this night, the monkeys that got me up are dogs, vet bills and marijuana. The other day, our 5-year-old chocolate Lab, Sadie, started wobbling and drooling and falling down after our usual morning on Indian Beach in Trinidad. It looked to me like a stroke: She couldn’t walk, her bladder let go, her eyes couldn’t focus. What the heck was happening to our dog? We loaded her into the car and rushed to the vet in Sunny Brae, where the lab tech asked matter-of-factly if Sadie could have gotten into marijuana. It looked like marijuana toxicity, she said. What?! First, we don’t have a stash. And, second, what?!? It could be something Sadie got into on the beach, the tech said. They would do some tests and put her on an IV. Turns out that Sadie probably did get stoned from something she scarfed on the beach Friday morning (hey, she’s a Lab, and they eat everything). It takes as little as the butt-end of a joint to put a dog into a life-threatening downer, says our veterinarian. This is not that uncommon, according

to news reports from Seattle, Denver and elsewhere. Pot is not good for dogs. In Seattle, reports on a vet who says, “More marijuana means more poisoned dogs.” Seattle emergency room vet Jennifer Waldrop told KOMO TV news that cases of marijuana toxicity in dogs are becoming more common — quadrupling nationwide in recent years. “Stoner dogs on the rise,” is the headline on one YouTube video that cites Colorado cases since the legalization of medical marijuana there. A Michigan veterinary group says, “Almost all exposed animals will exhibit neurological signs (depression or alternating depression and excitement, falling over/ uncoordinated, hallucinations with barking or agitation, seizures or even coma).” In the Seattle case, KOMO reported, “Last month, Seattle resident Katherine Evans took her dog Abby on a long walk through the Arboretum and Montlake Playground. Three hours after the walk, Abby was vomiting, stumbling and twitching. ‘I was pretty scared,’ Evans said.” Yup. Us, too. Two hours after Sadie apparently found some MaryJane on the beach in Trinidad she was falling down and peeing uncontrollably. We thought she was having a stroke. Our wonderful vets at Sunny Brae say they get three cases like ours every week. The dogs get into marijuana and are wiped out, sometimes unconscious. It can be dangerous. Our vet told of one case of a vacationing couple and their dog driving up Highway 101. They stopped their RV for lunch in Garberville, where their dog apparently

found something in the rest area. By the time they reached Humboldt the dog was falling down, throwing up and they were scared as hell. The treatment for marijuana toxicity in dogs is to induce vomiting, an IV flush and charcoal to help absorb the THC from the pooch’s bloodstream. “Death occurs rarely” when dogs get into weed — only 2 percent of the time, according to a Colorado study. But it ain’t cheap — after about $400, another $8 gazillion in owner anxiety and a full 24 hours later, Sadie was back to normal, thank Dog. The other costs are how we and our dogs get to play on the beach. Sadie and Stella won’t roam and scarf crab parts and other delicious stuff anymore. We’ll yell at them a lot more as they do what Labs do — cruise the seaweed line, play with kelp and check out yummy tidbits. They’ll have to stay closer now, which is going to be too bad — because what’s more joyful than a Labrador retriever on a beach? But the costs to our dogs of even a fragment of somebody’s doobie are too high. Days later, poor Sadie is still acting a little weird and baffled. As I sit on the couch in the predawn dark, two snoring hounds on either side of me, I’m realizing I’m not going to risk them again if I can help it. No more bad trips for Sadie.

Ferndale Enterprise Wins National Awards

Listen to Montgomery’s report on the Journal’s website. ●

The Victorian Village’s scrappy weekly, the Ferndale Enterprise, was informed last week that it nabbed two awards for best editorial writing in the National Newspaper Association’s annual Better Newspaper Contest. The 135-year-old paper is more or less a one-woman show these days, with Caroline Titus (wife of Ferndale Mayor Stuart Titus) acting as publisher, editor, reporter, page designer — even occasional distributor. (See the Journal’s February 28 profile of the Tituses — “Ferndale Gothic” — The NNA honored the Enterprise for a pair of editorials penned by Caroline Titus — a first place (among non-dailies with circulation less than 3,000) for her May 17, 2012 critique of the Humboldt County Fair Board and a third place for her Dec. 20, 2012 piece about the widespread bullying and intimidation of a high school student. You can read both editorials over at the Enterprise website. Congrats to Titus and the paper.

A crowd of dairy people — including a princess! — spent a fine afternoon in the old mill lot and field behind the Samoa Cookhouse last Saturday, celebrating the Humboldt County Farm Bureau’s 100th anniversary. In fact, Humboldt’s farm bureau was the first formed in the state (back in 1913, of course), and the second in the nation. There was a pie contest; the winning one a tart-sweet, heavenly-pastried peach pie baked by Sandre Dale, who was awarded 100 bucks. There was melon catapulting by two teams operating towering trebuchets and more fun, including a competition of barn pictures strung along the walls of the cookhouse’s entryway; train car tours and speeder rides; ice cream served up by 2013 Dairy Princess Andrea Guggenbickler; and displays of some venerable Humboldt farm families.

‘Weed the Game’

Who says stoners are lazy? Jim Gray, a resident of McKinleyville, has launched a company called Stoner Brothers Games, and his first product, set to launch next month, is WEED the Game. We got a press release describing the board game thusly: “Players buy seeds and plants and try to grow pounds of weed for cash. Players try to avoid going to jail, getting ripped off and loosing [sic] pounds and plants. The player with the most cash WINS!” In other words, it’s exactly like real life for certain segments of our community. Does the game celebrate this lifestyle? Well, the box does say “Live the Dream,” with a cartoony American Gothic homage that shows a farm couple hip-deep in ganja. The blurb delights: “You can even win from jail if you are sitting on a pile of cash.” Totally, bro. The company has another product already in the works — a marijuana trivia game called Legalize It in 50 States. “We plan to release a new board game every year — created right here in Humboldt County,” says the press release. WEED the Game costs $42 — or 420 dimes. Heh heh. ●

Humboldt blood donors help patients here — and far beyond By Grant Scott-Goforth and Jennifer Fumiko Cahill


n the small lab of the Northern California Community Blood Bank, swift hands process and package blood, plasma and platelets while machines shake, spin and freeze the small bags of bodily fluids. This lab next to St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka is the heart of North Coast blood distribution. Here, the workers take in raw, untested blood, prepare it for testing, and separate it into its desired parts before pumping it off to hospitals. Their work — and the dedication of hundreds of repeat donors — doesn’t just help Humboldt residents who need life-saving transfusions to treat everything from cancer to car crash injuries. The blood bank here also takes in so much blood that half the red blood cells collected and processed in Humboldt are sent elsewhere, shipped out by plane to blood banks around California. That makes Humboldt a bigger regional giver, proportionately, than some big cities including Sacramento. The North Coast’s

donations — and the number of people who donate — are well above the national average. “It says a tremendous amount about your community” to have such donation prowess, says Leslie Botos, the public affairs spokeswoman for BloodSource, a large blood bank based in Sacramento. By comparison, BloodSource sends about 30 percent of its blood supplies out of its 26-county area. How does Humboldt manage it? One pint at a time, with a constant eye on the future. Because blood products are perishable, the blood bank needs steady lifetime donors. (The flurry of donor interest that follows any disaster is great, but it’s not what keeps a constant supply on hand.) As regular donors age or become too ill to give, recruiters need to pull in 3,000 new ones annually, according to Jo Anna Leppek, the blood




bank’s donor recruiter. In a pair of swingy shell earrings and a bright, floral blouse, Leppek has the upbeat energy of a party planner. She’s heard every vampire joke there is. When she tells people what she does, she says, they tend (after the jokes) to tell her why they don’t give blood: time, bad experiences with needles, restrictions and so on. That’s when she goes to work. Lots of the hurdles that people mention aren’t really a

problem, she says. Tattoos used to require a one-year deferral, but as of July 1 there’s no wait as long as you got your ink in a licensed shop. Piercings just need to be completely healed. Most diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol medications are fine. In fact, only a handful of medications, such as Accutane and Clavix, pose a problem for donation. As for alcohol and marijuana, Leppek says, “I don’t care if you had beer with lunch or if you get high every day.” And if you’re worried about privacy, rest assured: The contents of

Blood Brothers By Jennifer Fumiko Cahill


he first time Dennis Ellsworth gave blood, he really just wanted to have a good time. It was back in the 1970s, when he was in the Navy, and he and some fellow sailors had the bright idea that they’d get drunk faster if they donated first. It may have worked, since he can’t recall what port it was. (Don’t try this at home, kids.) Now, though, he and his brother Rick Ellsworth donate regularly, partly in tribute to a regular donor who helped their mother, and partly because a bloodmobile needed some repairs. The Ellsworths run Wonder Brothers Auto Body, off the King Salmon exit of Highway 101. Ten years ago, when the shop was working on a bloodmobile, one of the mechanics asked if the blood bank could arrange a regular stop there. Once it did, the guys in the shop got on a steady schedule. Even Rick. Rick hates needles. The cuts on his hands and arms from doing repairs with sharp tools and the jagged metal edges of wrecked cars don’t bother him. But even after a decade of having his blood drawn, needles still do. Still, the bloodmobile was right there, and his brother Dennis, who got on board first, was


hassling him. The very first time, Rick was so anxious that his blood pressure shot up and the nurse had to wait for him to relax and bring it back to normal. “He had to lay down,” Dennis says, laughing, as the brothers sit inside their body shop’s wood-paneled trailer office. Rick puts a hand on his coveralls over his heart and says he finally calmed down after a while. “Then they jabbed me with the frickin’ needle!” he says, wild-eyed, “And they’ve done it every time since!” Dennis leans into his desk, in full belly laugh. The Northern California Community Blood Bank has about 1,475 regular donors (who give blood at least three times a year) like the Ellsworth brothers, and it is always looking for more. The regulars not only smooth out bumps in the blood supply, they can be life savers for those with special medical needs. When the Ellsworths’ mother was in her 30s, her appendix was nicked during an unrelated surgery. She lost a great deal of blood and needed multiple transfusions. Her blood type was rare, and she depended on repeated donations from one anonymous person in Eureka who was her match. “Just one,” says Dennis, the smile gone from under his thick moustache. “The only one who’d step up, anyway,” adds Rick. Their mother recovered, and the brothers, then just boys, were keenly aware of the need for blood, pint by pint. Today, Dennis thinks he may have donated around three gallons, but Rick is sure his



brother is closer to four. Rick has donated over five gallons of whole blood, as has their co-worker Rich Kelly. On top of that, the Ellsworths reckon they’ve invited, cajoled and bullied about a dozen friends and family members to become repeat donors. After the initial panic subsides, Rick says, the actual pain isn’t that bad, and he expects to keep donating as long as he’s able. “It’s hard to just cut off something that’s so important,” he says, “It’s a good deed.” His brother calls it addictive. Other donors share that enthusiasm. Robert Morones has been giving blood since he was 16, when his aunt talked him into it at a high school drive. Stories like his are one of the reasons the blood bank holds high school drives, where teens as young as 16 can donate with parental consent. For some of those young people, that begins a lifetime of giving. In the back of a bloodmobile parked on Second Street in Eureka, Sharon Reid, a donor care specialist, swabs Morones’ right arm with alcohol. Reid’s laptop is showing a video of dolphins in the ocean, swimming to some bluegrass tunes that she calls “bloodpumpin’ music.” As donors sit in the bloodmobile’s three adjustable chairs, they get a choice of

an Angry Birds pig or bird to squeeze while their blood is drawn. Since high school, Morones has donated about four times a year, usually in a bloodmobile. Nurses have told him he has great veins — prominent enough to be seen from across a room. He’s also got good blood. It’s O-negative, so it can be given quickly to people whose medical emergency is too pressing to wait for their blood to be typed, and it’s free of cytomegalovirus, making it safe for babies and other vulnerable patients. That’s one of the reasons he started donating regularly. “It felt good knowing my blood was going to little kids with serious illnesses,” Morones says. There’s no way around it — the needle looks a little large. But the pain is brief. Blood, dark and berry colored, travels quickly, first to a small pouch that will in turn fill six vials for testing, and then to a pint bag. In less than six minutes, the machine beeps and the bag is full. Morones chooses a bright purple bandage. He knows his 7-year old daughter will like it. ●

continued from page 13 manager Matthew Stuart, as he opens a large freezer door. [Full disclosure, Stuart is a personal friend. — GSG]. A swath of arctic air pours out, the window in the walk-in’s door fogs up and it’s clear why large parkas hang on coat racks just outside the cooler. Platelets are boxed, labeled and ready to be delivered to hospitals in need. Next door to the freezer is a refrigerator with the red blood cells. In this cooler, there are only a few dozen neatly arranged crimson pockets with their blood types printed boldly on the front. It doesn’t look like much, but the blood bank’s supply is in good shape, Stuart explains, particularly with the “universal donor.” “O-negative is booming — it’s great.” Only 6 percent of the population has O-negative blood, which is usable by all blood types. That means that when a patient comes into the emergency room and needs blood immediately, he or she can be given O-negative on the spot and tested for blood type later. O-negative blood that is cytomegalovirus negative (or CMV-negative) is even more rare. Cytomegalovirus is common and usually harmless to healthy adults, but blood transfusions for infants, preg-

nant women and children being treated for leukemia must be CMV-negative.

Part of Stuart’s job is to coordi-

nate with local hospitals, as well as blood centers out of the area, to make sure everyone has what they need. Hospitals keep a short-term supply of blood bags on site — usually in a household-size refrigerator or freezer. Platelets are in the highest demand. Red blood cell use is leveling off, blood bank officials say, because of blood conservation practices in hospitals. And — locally, at least — almost nothing goes to waste. Of more than 13,000 donations collected in 2012, only 80 samples expired. Botos said there are blood banks, which she declined to name, that forego the “local first” mantra of blood banking for “local only,” promising donors that their blood won’t leave the area. This leads to high rates of expired blood and doesn’t increase donations. In her experience, people are happier knowing that their blood will go to use somewhere in the country rather than potentially spoiling waiting for a local recipient. These life-saving fluids only last so long. Frozen plasma keeps for a year. Red blood cells are good for 42 days. Platelets last just five days. So Leppek, Stuart and the rest of the blood bank staff perform a constant balancing act — meeting local needs, supplying other blood centers and preventing labor-intensive products from going to waste — all while struggling with people’s donating habits.

Serving Platelets

Red blood cell donations have held steady over the last few years, but platelet donations are on the rise, thanks to increased recruiting for the blood bank's apheresis machine, which separates platelets from blood and returns the unused components to the donor's system while they wait.

Along with taking donations at its lab, the blood bank has three bloodmobiles, which travel from Garberville to Crescent City. Inside, they look like a cross between an ambulance and an RV. As soon as you step in there’s a small bench seat for filling out the questionnaire and a side table with bottled water, juice boxes and a package of oatmeal raisin cookies. Costco donates the snacks weekly, to keep donors’ energy up and keep them from fainting from low blood pressure and bloodoxygen loss. Very few people like to be stuck with a needle, and even fewer like to fill out medical forms. There are some 50 boxes to check on a touchscreen questionnaire, and many are personal: weight, medica-

tragedy strikes, whether local teens are hurt in a car accident or scores are injured in the Boston Marathon bombings earlier this year. But usually, the blood that helps victims of a traumatic event was donated beforehand. That happens through active recruitment, all year round. Leppek admits it’s hard not to sound ghoulish asking for people’s blood. For this, the blood bank employs the only creatures more reviled than vampires: telemarketers. Most of its six callers are high school students, and each makes somewhere around 300 calls a night. None of these calls are to new donors; instead, they ring up people who’ve already given and are eligible again after 56 days, letting them know where upcoming drives or bloodmobiles will be.

There is no tax write-

Around the country, according to Leppek, blood banks are

off. The nonprofit blood bank is banking on the desire of the people of Humboldt and Del Norte counties to do good. It seems to work. In Humboldt and Del Norte combined, 4.2 percent of the population donated blood at least once in 2012, about one-third higher than the national average of 2.9 percent. And many donors gave repeatedly, making the amount of blood donated per capita much higher. During the past 12 months, the 163,000 people in Humboldt and Del Norte counties donated 15,000 units of blood — a ratio of 9.5 percent. The national average is roughly half that, just 5 percent, according to an estimate by the Association of American Blood Banks. And ultimately, all those donors, all the powerful medical machines, shaky flights, acid baths, sub-zero temperatures and steady coordination lead up to one thing: helping someone in need. “You make sure to care for your own, and when you’re able to collect more than that, you help others,” Botos says. “Bottom line: If blood’s not there, someone’s going to die. ●

Don’t try this at home! mating 17-year cicaDas. Photo by tom miDDleton

Prime Number Cicadas By Barry Evans


he cacophony by the lake in western New Jersey was deafening. Which was louder, the voices of my 30-odd family members at our biennial reunion, or the din of millions of cicadas? Both groups were noisy, but the cicadas, making up for 17 years of celibate residency in holes in the ground, were the loudest. Well, they had to be. The male of the species Cicadidae magicicada has but four weeks or so to attract females, mate, mate and mate ... and die. Once inseminated, a female cicada climbs up the trunk of a nearby tree, cuts V-slits in young twigs, lays about 20 eggs and repeats the process 30 or so times for a total of about 600 eggs before she, too, dies. The eggs hatch about eight weeks later, and the newborn nymphs fall to the ground where they burrow down about a foot to start their 17-year troglodyte existence. Most never make it; 98 percent die in the first two years. The survivors live it up on a diet of xylem fluids found in the roots of deciduous woodland trees. Finally, on a single spring evening when the soil temperature is just right, the nymphs emerge in their multitudes — up to two million per acre! In southern states, E-day is late April to early May, while broods in northern states emerge from late May to early June. A few days later, after a series of moltings, the adult males congregate in vast choruses of lust. Unlike crickets, which produce their signature chirping by rubbing their wings together, cicadas vibrate their entire corrugated exoskeletons, or timbals. The noise of millions of these creatures can be thunderous; they produce some of the loudest decibel ratings (up to 107 dB) of any insects. The question, of course, is why 17 years? Or 13 years, in related species of pe-

riodic cicadas? The most common answer given is predator saturation. When all the nymphs in one area emerge simultaneously, birds, squirrels and other predators soon gorge themselves, leaving the survivors to breed in peace. The prime number pattern (13 and 17 are both prime) optimizes this saturation strategy by keeping the cicadas out of step with predators. If instead cicadas emerged every, say, 12 years, a predator might well evolve a strategic periodicity of its own, synchronizing its breeding cycle to two, three, four or six years (factors of 12); the 13- and 17-year cycles avoid a matching predator periodicity. Predators on the same cycle would decimate the cicadas. Also, the two cycles of 13 and 17 years helps keep “rival” cicada species separate, again optimizing survival rates by minimizing hybridization, which could throw off their timing, again putting them at greater risk from predators. The 13-year cicadas are found mostly in southern states, and the 17-year variety stays in northern states, with very little overlap. None of which really explains the magic of these 13- and 17-year cycles: How on earth did cicadas evolve to know when it’s the correct year to emerge? I didn’t see any tiny insect calendars, yet somehow all the cicadas we recently heard and saw knew it was 2013, and they’ll know when 2030 rolls around. Turns out it’s all controlled by a single gene locus that counts out those 13 or 17 years. I wouldn’t normally enjoy being surrounded by millions of lusty, noisy 17-year olds, but in this case I had to make an exception. For me, the cacophony is a paean to the genius of evolution. l Barry Evans ( is checking airfares for his spring 2030 trip to the East Coast.

New York Comedy at North Coast Rep By William S. Kowinski

Coming Up: Humboldt Light


uppose you’re an edgy but also starving New York performer, concocting scripts allowing you to impersonate various movie divas but in genre B-movie stories with vibrant titles like Vampire Lesbians of Sodom and Psycho Beach Party (which then actually becomes a B-movie). But after writing the book for a failed musical, you are told by the artistic director of the Manhattan Theatre Club — the place where scruffy downtown (the Village, etc.) meets Broadway — that she’ll produce your next play, sight unseen. So with your downtown dues paid, you write about uptown characters — an Upper West Side Jewish family — for an actress with Broadway cred, and show it to an audience that gets every comic New York nuance that skilled pros Linda Lavin and Tony Roberts can produce. It’s a hit, it’s Broadway bound — but here’s the twist. The play is so well constructed, the characters so weirdly interesting and the lines so funny that for more than a decade audiences without a New York clue love it at the Bucks County (Pa.)

structure. Family memories provided reality (some lines are so outrageous that they could only have come from life), but Busch also plays with concepts like the golem, a figure derived from Jewish stories and used here as a projection of hidden desires. The resemblance of the play’s title to Boccaccio’s tales is probably not coincidental. It has the quality of a naturalistic fable. Director Scott Malcolm’s aim seems to be clarity, with a bright stage and actors moving downstage center for key speeches. That often works for comedy, and it does for this one. The actors create convincing characters with individual styles, and they work well together. Jenneveve Hood’s eyecatching costumes serve the play well. The early scenes are masterful in showing us the characters and situation, and though there’s a grab-bag sitcom quality to much of what follows, the provocative and mysterious Lee animates the stage. Possible caveats: There’s some scatological and other potentially offensive humor, and topical references are more than a decade old (the play premiered in 2000). Still, it’s an intriguing, funny play and a lively evening. The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife plays weekends at North Coast Rep through Aug. 17.

at the North Coast Repertory Theatre in Eureka. In a spacious apartment (nicely designed by Calder Johnson, with properties by Laura Rhinehart), the middle-aged Marjorie (Cynthia Kosiak) is discussing a Nadine Gordimer novel with Mohammed, the doorman (Pryncz Lotoj). Marjorie, we soon learn, is in existential crisis, afraid her love of literature (Thomas Mann, Herman Hesse) is meaningless intellectual pretension. Her husband Ira (Arnold Waddell) is a recently retired allergist, cluelessly wallowing in his own saintliness. But he brings her good news: The Disney Store won’t press charges. Marjorie’s crisis was also expressed in a ceramic figure-breaking rampage. The family circle is completed by her mother Frieda (Denise Ryles), who lives down the hall and spends a lot of time comically complaining at their kitchen table — a Jewish Estelle Getty from The Golden Girls. But their world is invaded by Lee (Gloria Montgomery), Marjorie’s long-lost childhood friend who is now a glamorous and dangerous woman, a worldly name-dropper (she gave Warhol the idea of painting soup cans etc.) who may have more than one agenda. That is, if she’s real. Busch’s starting point was to write a Pinter or Albee play about Jewish characters. The result is midway between the plays of Wallace Shawn and Woody Allen movies, with some Neil Simon snappiness and

Opera Company opens its summer production, Shrek the Musical, on Friday, Aug. 2, at HSU’s Van Duzer Theatre.

Originally from Hollywood, he says he’s done everything from illustrating greeting cards to advertising to being the art director of a national television magazine. After moving to Humboldt around 1974, he settled into painting full-time. Forty years of making art has LEFT “ARCATA BOTTOMS #51.” made life challengABOVE DETAIL FROM “ARCATA BOTTOMS #51.” ing, Spicer says with a PAINTINGS BY RANDY SPICER wide grin, but it’s also “made it a hell of a lot more fun!” Local readers will recognize his large outdoor mural featuring Louis Armstrong at the Arkley Center’s parking lot, and he just finished up another one for a golf shop in Newport Beach. The scale of these murals is impressive, yet Spicer simply says that now that he knows what he’s doing, they go pretty quickly. It’s enjoyable work, but “in illustration you’re solving somebody else’s problem,” he says, looking over the silver rims of his glasses. He’d rather be solving his own. Trim, tall, always moving, Spicer defines himself as a naturalist, an interpreter of nature. He’s constantly climbing, hiking and boating, adventures on which he finds equally important. Look too closely at his inspiration. When he spies a stimusomething and you lose sight of broader lating vantage he’ll stare at it for hours, connections. And without an eye for the taking notes and photos while figuring out meaningful minutiae, it’s easy to miss how the relationships at play. they hold the bigger pieces together. Back home at his studio, Spicer works Spicer’s exuberance is contagious. from dark shades to light, blocking in Stories spill from his wiry mustache, and large shapes with loose, sketchy strokes. every sentence brims with a chuckle. “All Painting is a physical experience for him, my waking hours, I’m looking at how I’d and he uses the largest brushes possible. paint something,” he says.

Randy Spicer: The Near and Far By Ken Weiderman


tanding too close to an oil painting by local artist Randy Spicer can be somewhat confusing. Smudges of ebony and cream smash together above forceful streaks of brick, olive and eggplant. Dashes of ochre, fuchsia and lime dart about. Inches from the canvas, the shapes elude meaning, their abstract edges seemingly thrown together without purpose. Five steps back from “Arcata Bottoms #51” however, a pastoral scene emerges. The black and white splotches morph into lazy cows munching away near a tractor loading hay into a barn. Birds flap by. In the distance, snow drapes purple peaks. You can almost smell the salty air and bovine aromas of the Arcata Bottom. This duality, this collision of colors up close melting into familiar images when viewed from afar, is a hallmark of Spicer’s work. He intentionally avoids the fine lifelike details some painters seek. Instead, kaleidoscopic color combinations provide just enough information while the viewer’s mind fills in the rest. “There’s two readings,” he says, and both near and far examinations of the work are

around, their shades mingling and mixing in unpredictable ways. Strokes slice in and out and through each other, creating peaks of pigment on the canvas. The gestural fluidity of his surfaces keeps each painting fresh and lively. Indeed, Spicer tries to “say a lot with the least amount of words.” These paintings are not overworked; it’s easy to see the texture of the canvas resting below the cacophony of colored shapes. “When I paint, I want it to be fun!” he shouts. Examining the paintings more closely reveals Spicer’s color alchemy. Reds somehow have a greenish hue, purples contain bits of orange, and little flecks of color that aren’t necessarily part of the natural landscape spring up everywhere. In “Grizzly Creek (Trinity Alps),” a cornflower blue sky’s reflection slithers down a canyon of dark green boughs. The foreground’s buttery pebbles pile upon one another, their warm tones speckled with surprises of heather, magenta and periwinkle. From a distance, the round profile of each pebble is clearly evident, while up close they’re nothing but dibs and dabs of multitudinous hues. Another painting, “Leaf Flotilla (Lewiston Lake),” shimmers with gold and dandelion-colored leaves fluttering above deep pools of ivy green. From across the room the suspended flotilla appears weightless, as if it might blow away. Many of Spicer’s titles are the names of locations that inspired him. “I’m just a reflection of what I see,” he explains. And he wants others to see it too. There are no symbols or overt messages in these works, just pure excitement at nature’s abundant beauty. Smiling and staring at one of his pieces, Spicer reminisces, saying, “This is a really cool place. I enjoyed it, and now it’s your turn!” So here’s your chance: Randy Spicer’s 41 new paintings are at the Piante Gallery during the month of August. An Arts! Alive reception will be held on Aug. 3 from 6-9 p.m. ●

Didgeridoo delight

In less predictable Humboldt musical happenings, Saturday offers a chance to

Welch worship

Thursday, Mad River Brewing and Chris Parreira usher in August with a nightlong tribute to alt-country angel-voiced folk goddess Gillian Welch. Performers include Josephine Johnson, The Lonesome Roses, Strix Vega’s Colin Begell, Jo Kuzelka, Trillium, Rachel Beccaria with Rich Kearns and Zach Zwerdling, and Hot Wings. How do they decide who is doing which songs? Will everyone wrap up with a group jam of “Look at Miss Ohio” or “Everything is Free Now?” Is heartbreak inevitable? And if so, is it cathartic? These questions and more will undoubtedly be answered. Oh – and while everything isn’t free, this sure-to-be-lovely evening is. Things start early at 6 p.m.

Saturday sweetness

The musical appreciation continues in Blue Lake on Saturday with the 13th annual Buddy Brown Blues Festival, which kicks off at 11 a.m., features some of the best blues musicians in Humboldt County and is a major fund-raiser for the Humboldt Folklife Society’s Folk School program. Full line-up and details at humboldtfolklife. org. Saturday night, of course, is Arts Alive. Music abounds, so go enjoy! Bring some dollars for the buskers.

hings are happening, Humboldt. Are you still indecisive about checking out a live show? Maybe you’re tired? Long day at work? So many options on Netflix? Well, here are a few reasons to rally and head out: 1. Going out to see bands often lifts you out of yourself. Not only does an inherent excitement surround seeing the musicians in the flesh, but the communal adulation – think a couple hundred or a couple thousand people singing along together – is the closest some of us secular types get to church. 2. You never know how big a band is going to get. If you like them now, see them while you can. What if you’d skipped going to the Jambalaya on Feb. 25, 1995? You would never have seen the Foo Fighters in a tiny club! What about The Devil Makes Three at then-Muddy Waters? The Waifs at the Red Radish? Sure, most of the bands that stop in Humboldt – aside from the hip hop and reggae acts – probably won’t be the next Black Keys or Daft Punk, but hey! You never know. So you might as well go. 3. Sometimes history pivots on a moment. The EMP (Experience Music Project) Museum in Seattle proves that fact repeatedly with a comprehensive history of the grunge era, plus a hall dedicated to Jimi Hendrix and a wing devoted to chronicling decades of Women Who Rock. Immerse yourself in the scene now and one day you, too, might find yourself waxing nostalgic over cassette tape demos and

celebrates the release of two new CDs: Live Electric Didgeridoo, a collection of 12 solos recorded live at recent performances in SoHum, and Um ... Uh ... Gum Eh? which was recorded by Hardin and his life-partner Amy Gustin, together known as Tin Can Luminary. For Um ... Uh ... Gum Eh? Hardin created a collection of unique electronic instruments from objects ranging from cigar boxes, yard lamps and tin cans to educational alphabet learning toys and electronic toy keyboards he found at local thrift stores. Not sold? Hardin vows the experience will amaze: “You might think that two hours of solo didgeridoo music will be really boring, but you couldn’t be more wrong. ... I’ve finally found the sound I was born to make, and people really dig it. Come on by. You’ll be blown away. I promise.” Photo courtesy of Summer Twins.

Surfy Summer Twins

Whether you’ve been celebrating summer with gusto or fretting that the long,

warmer days are passing by too quickly, the perfect show awaits on Wednesday, Aug. 7, when the Summer Twins deliver their surfy-garagey-dance-erific sounds at the Palm Lounge. The Monster Women – possibly Humboldt’s most cheerful band – join. Show’s at 9 p.m. and is 21-and-over. (Pro tip: This show is also the perfect excuse to shop for some beachy new threads at Little Shop of Hers, owned by The Monster Women’s Courtney Jaxon.)

Future funtimes

Looking ahead, the last week of August promises to be a doozy – something to do with the students returning for the fall semester? Whatever the reason, Arcata’s west side steps up with the Creamery Festival Friday, Aug. 23 through Sunday, Aug. 25. Humboldt Brews brings back Zepparella on Saturday, Aug. 24 and Les Claypool on Monday, Aug. 26 (advance tickets to both shows recommended). San Francisco’s Wild Eyes – featuring at least one former member of KSLG 94.1 FM faves Floating Goat – deliver the heavy rock to the Alibi, also on Saturday, Aug. 24. Plus Australian electronica wunderkind Flume performs in HSU’s Kate Buchanan Room on Tuesday, Aug. 27. So, just block off that week now.

The fine print

Before we finish, a note of caution. The unfortunate truth is, sometimes things change. The best of plans go astray and all that. Bands cancel. Venues screw up. While we here at the Journal strive to provide the most accurate information, every so often – like last week – unforeseen circumstances mean a show will be at, say, the Works instead of the Palm Lounge. It’s never a bad idea to double-check online or with a phone call.

This year’s PLAY IN THE PARK returns to Redwood Park with two new plays: Shakespeare’s As You Like It and Late, A Cowboy Song by Sarah Ruhl. Late is a drama about one woman’s search for love within — and without — her marriage. Does that sound a bit heavy for you? As You Like It is a comedy about a woman who disguises herself as a man and all the hijinks that ensue. The plays alternate every other weekend and run until Sept. 2.



Join the Humboldt community in celebrating the annual LANTERN CEREMONY. The ceremony began 30 years ago to commemorate those who died during the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Every year people gather at Klopp Lake at the Arcata Marsh to honor lost loved ones and ancestors. Make your own lantern to float on the lake at the Arcata Farmer’s Market Saturday morning, and then make your way to the lake at 7:30 p.m.

Lanterns are also going to play an important, if less somber, role at the Creamery Festival on Aug. 23. The first night of the festival will feature “Elemental Friday Night” with lanterns made by the community. LANTERN MAKING WORKSHOPS will be held at the Arcata Playhouse on Saturdays, Tuesdays and Thursdays until Aug. 17. Get your craft on and make yours now!

Arcata has some characters, all right. And evidently it always has — even before it was Arcata. From the Wiyot Tribe and the days of the Wild West to pioneering farmers, builders, tie-dyed idealists and immigrant shop owners on the plaza, Arcata is a town of fascinating folks. Easy to forget in the age of Pot Cops, but this place has history. All those names on street signs around town have a story. Curious? Leg it to Booklegger in Eureka from 6:30 p.m to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday and have local author Kevin Hoover sign a copy of Legendary Locals of Arcata for you. Yes, that Kevin Hoover — editor of the Arcata Eye and a real Arcatan. He’s chosen some movers and shakers from among the throng of characters that have populated this “tiny big city” and collected their stories. The book is part of a series of Local Legend books, dozens and dozens of titles, each focusing on a different city. Cool, but not about us. Let’s get back to us. In the 1920s, Arcata singer Zelia Vaissade was the toast of Paris, broadcasting from the Eiffel Tower. Today, hometown girl Brisa Roche is rocking the pop charts in the City of Light. And the Chums, the folks who run Don’s Donuts, Pizza and Deli, escaped the killing fields of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. Pick up a copy, have it signed and then thrill to the escapades of Arcata legends then and now. How else are you going to find out if you’re in it? — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill


Have you been online too long? Are you starting to get that 10-inch stare and a swollen smartphone thumb? Maybe it’s time to get away from the glow of a screen. You know, make something. Maybe go outside. Spend time with actual people. No, Words with Friends doesn’t count. Kick off Arts Alive! early and hit the third annual Humboldt Makers Street Fair from noon to 8 p.m. on Second Street in Old Town Eureka. Cruise handmade goods, decorative art, street art, jewelry, textiles, up-cycling and live painting. Black Faun Gallery, Origin Design Lab and Eureka Main Street are putting it on, so you know it’ll be good. All that creativity making your glue gun trigger finger itch? Pull up a chair at one of the craft demonstrations and see how it’s done. Learn some woodworking techniques, felting, crochet, screen printing — you can even learn to stitch on an antique sewing machine. Bring the kids and set them up with some kids’ crafts. Listen, pinning things on Pinterest isn’t the same as really making them. Hard truths. And take off those headphones. Free live music will be happening right in front of you. Michael Menert, Paul Basic, Hypha, Stevie Culture, Kindred Spirits, Lyndsey Battle and UFO8 are all taking the stage in a day-long concert. And if that’s not exciting enough for you, there’s also trapeze art, belly dancing and fire dancing. If you still miss your phone, you can use it to take a picture. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

“Here, have some self-esteem.” Liam James and Sam Rockwell in The Way Way Back.

Angst on a Waterslide

Sam Rockwell and Steve Carell shine in a whimsical coming-of-age comedy By John J. Bennett


THE WAY WAY BACK. The title refers to the backward-facing third-row seat in a station wagon, which is where our protagonist, 14-year-old Duncan (Liam James), sits sullenly in the movie’s opening scene. It’s a clever, not overly precious metaphor, and a neat encapsulation of this story’s tone and intelligence. Writer-directors Nat Faxon and Jim Rash rocketed to prominence when they won the 2012 Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for The Descendants (an award they shared with director Alexander Payne). As I understand it, they parlayed that success into financial

backing for this movie, a passion project they’ve long had in the works. Like The Descendants, The Way Way Back focuses on the seams that start to show when a family faces trying circumstances. The script is nuanced and insightful, the characters rendered with great care and sympathy. There’s less middle-aged fatalism (I’d attribute that mostly to Payne) and a lot more hope, but one can see that the writing is of a piece, and that Faxon and Rash’s success is anything but a fluke. The station wagon of the opening shots belongs to Duncan’s mom’s boyfriend Trent (Steve Carell). They’re on their way, along with Trent’s late-teen daughter Steph (Zoe Levin), to spend the summer at Trent’s beach house. Duncan’s relationship with Trent is strained at best. At the beach, the adults settle into a routine of hard partying with Trent’s friends and Steph reunites with her supremely bitchy friends, leaving Duncan with no one. Eventually he ventures out and befriends Owen (Sam Rockwell), the manager of the local waterpark, who hires Duncan for the summer. The job and his newfound friends gradually draw Duncan out of his shell, and things start to look up. Meanwhile, the tension inside the beach house, along with Trent’s sleazeball behavior and the increasing emotional distance of his mom (Toni Collette), conspire to undo his progress.

The Way Way Back could be called a summer-camp movie, and not unfairly. The structure is familiar and a little predictable, but the movie succeeds in spite — and because — of that structure. By using a template, Faxon and Rash can eschew plot twists and bold strokes, instead really drilling into the interpersonal emotions of the story. Their portrait of family life in disarray is vivid and sad, but not without joy or hope. Ditto their meditation on the interior life of the adolescent male, which James depicts with impressive restraint and subtlety. This is deceptively smart writing: What some will see as “just” a breezy little comedy actually has a great degree of vulnerability and authenticity. It’s still a breezy little comedy, though, with Rockwell delivering many of the numerous laughs. Faxon and Rash are also featured in funny minor roles. One of the best of the universally strong performances comes from Carell, who demonstrates a talent and range that’s often absent from his bigger releases. He plays completely against type here and hits it out of the park. Car salesman to the core, Trent is an overt manipulator, a player and a control freak. His interactions with Duncan made my skin crawl, they rang so true. This won’t go down as an instant classic. But its self-assuredness, empathy and intelligence are a winning combination. I look forward to whatever these guys deliver next. PG13. 103m. THE WOLVERINE. The X-Men have always, even in my days of occasional comicbook collecting, been too gigantic an entity for me to engage with. I’ve seen most of the movies and I’m familiar with the mythology, but for the most part I keep my distance. The exception is the Wolverine/Logan, a character I’ve always found interesting. And maybe in spite of myself, I really like the way Hugh Jackman plays him. Plus the trailer for this one is pretty damn cool, so I had reason to think I might like it going in. And I did enjoy it, quite a bit. The first shot is a slow, hazy pan following a B29 on a bombing run. Turns out it’s about to drop an atomic bomb on Nagasaki, on the outskirts of which Logan is being held as a prisoner of war. In the chaos of the bombing he saves the life of a Japanese officer. Almost 70 years later, Logan is living as a recluse in the woods of the Yukon, haunted by his memories, ruing his immortality. The Japanese officer he saved, Yashida, has become a technology mogul. His life is nearing its end, and he summons Logan to Japan, ostensibly to thank him. Things get complicated and action-packed quickly. The action scenes are the most critical component of a movie like this, and these don’t disappoint, from the intense bombing sequence of the opening to a prolonged battle atop a bullet train and through to the satisfyingly destructive climax. Director James Mangold presents an impressively


photographed array of fight choreography alongside almost seamless special effects sequences. The result is a handsome, fastpaced, intermittently funny summer blockbuster that puts most others to shame. PG13. 126m.

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 292 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 1-714-480-5690 or visit this Internet Web site, using the file number assigned to this case PFI-130206. 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. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.
