Meet our neighbors Shrek and Donkey, played by Tristin Roberts and James Gadd
In summertime, Sunny Brae is a hotspot for Humboldt Light Opera Company, as actors, costumers, designers and dancers descend on the home of HLOC Artistic Director Carol Ryder to share their latest contributions to the show. After three hours of facial reconstruction, Shrek and Donkey head down the street to Murphy’s Market for a snack. Ogres like their food savory - with plenty of onions. Donkey, on the other hand, has an inexplicable fascination for sweets. Shrek is played this summer by Humboldt County native Tristin Roberts. He’s spent almost a year preparing for this role, and climbs easily into character as the misunderstood but good-hearted
ogre. Show days for Tristin begin earlier than everyone else’s: ﬁrst his face must be constructed, then greeniﬁed, then warted! Murphy’s is happy to announce that Jacob, who is the son of Sunny Brae’s head clerk, Carolyn Smith, is playing Peter Pan and several other parts, in Shrek. Shrek’s best friend, the Donkey, is played by James Gadd. James completed a music degree at HSU this spring, in which Murphy’s played a small part - our breakfast burritos started him off most mornings before studying! Shrek the Musical features dozens of familiar fairytale creatures, plus ﬂying dragons, ﬂashy dance numbers,
and irreverent romance! It’s a story about learning to love yourself and everybody else, in spite of our quirks and imperfections. The show is directed by Carol Ryder, with choreography by Ciara Cheli-Colando. The orchestra is conducted by Justin Sousa. Sets and special effects are by Jayson Mohatt and Roger Cyr. Shrek the Musical runs weekends through Sunday, August 18 at the Humboldt State Van Duzer Theatre. Evening shows are at 7:30 p.m., Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m. Admission is $1119; all seats are reserved. Tickets are available now at hloc.org or by calling 822-1318.

Don’t Bust Here
Editor: Co-op management’s negotiations with its employees are acrimonious because they are guided by a union-busting lawyer (“Co-op Conflict,” Aug. 1). Management has hired Brad Kampus, who represents corporate managements in fighting unions. He attends all Co-op contract negotiations and advises management on taking an anti-employee position, as he advises corporate managers. (The union does not bring its lawyer to every negotiation. Bringing Kampus is thus unnecessary, unfair and confrontational.) Kampus’ web page boasts that he was praised by the Labor Relations Institute. That institute describes itself as “a consulting firm dedicated to maintaining the union-free workplace.” The institute is associated with the neoliberal Heritage Foundation and it supports anti-labor officials such as Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin. Kampus’ law firm is Jackson Lewis in San Francisco. It is notoriously combative against employees. Jackson Lewis offers “How to Stay Union Free” seminars with titles such as “Union Avoidance War Games.” The AFL-CIO has dubbed Jackson Lewis “the devil incarnate” and “the number one union-buster in America.” This firm does not cooperate with working people yet the Co-op hires it to guide negotiations with employees. It guides management to reduce employee benefits after having intensified work pressure by cutting the work force. This neoliberal strategy forces employees to seek public support outside the uncooperative Co-op. The board is silent about all this! The Co-op is using our patronage dollars to pay this anti-union, anti-cooperative, anti-community law firm. This diverts funds from employee benefits, community donations and Co-op operations to Jackson Lewis’ neoliberal activities. Co-op members should demand the general manager explain how much she is paying Kampus for fees and expenses to fly here, stay over and attend every negotiation. Co-op membership should direct her and the board to terminate this nefarious law firm and negotiate cooperatively. Carl Ratner, Trinidad

More on That Speech
It now appears that the only lasting consequence of this event is the message it has sent to the young students that Mr. Johnson addressed, and that message has nothing to do with the warm words he mouthed, but rather to the subsequent denouement. They now have learned that plagiarism is no big deal, and if caught, then the only response necessary is a belated, halfhearted (non) apology that
Editor: Marcy Burstiner hit it absolutely correctly in her July 25 column, “Copy That.” Dan Johnson’s action was a disgrace and Marcy pointed out the most important feature that has not been addressed until she hit it on the nail — he was talking to an entirely different audience than the one the real speech was intended for. Then, to make matters worse, Johnson’s apology failed to apologize. He ended his apology by referring to those who objected as “self-appointed referees of good and The white crests of the mountain sea evil” and added that “their intolerance, so readily on are briny conjurations, display, is a far more proan untraceable sorcery of mist and churning vapor, found flaw than mine.” No, lost, Johnson, you just flawed your flaw and you very like us, readily put it on display. in the vanishing moment Dave Rosso, Eureka

GT Buckley, Eureka Editor: I’m sure the kerfuffle regarding Mr. Johnson’s plagiarism will soon die down, and we’ll be back to business as usual.

Editor: As stated in the Journal’s article (“Run Out on a Rail,” July 25), the North Coast Railroad Authority’s mission is to “maintain rail service.” Those who sit on that board should be all about fulfilling that mission, with “zeal,” I would think.

She is also clearly on the “trails” side, and with all due respect, may she stay there, or wherever, but she clearly does not belong on the NCRA board. When it comes to political gamesmanship,

Editor: This letter is not meant as a panacea or fix-all but might work in the short term for the betterment of this community. Let’s look at history prior to World War II and the Great Depression awhile. FDR incorporated the unemployed in public works projects as the Works Progress Administration and Civilian Conservation Corp to provide sidewalks and other infrastructure for various community needs. The pay was about a dollar per day and stuff got built on a shoestring budget. Currently the economy is in “recovery” — ahem — and the number of able-bodied food stamp recipients have expanded. Where are the community leaders that we elected besides infighting and posing? That safety corridor along U.S. 101 is so named for a reason and there is no excuse not to consider railbanking. I propose that this community stop spending five or six digits hiring engineers to ascertain the costs — it is a simple job of manual labor. I propose that a homeless encampment could be temporarily erected and supplied logistics provided through various nonprofits, Salvation Army, etc. There are grant foundations that would support this endeavor to end homelessness (or houselessness). There are returning veterans who may feel a need to transition back into the
Save! SIT... SLEEP...
Editor: I was glad to see that citizens have kept the “Dan Johnson fiasco” in center stage, but I was quite annoyed with Art Jones’ letter (“Mailbox,” Aug. 1). He characterizes Johnson’s actions as “innocent omission” and asks who was harmed by it. Well, I don’t believe that Johnson just forgot to cite the source for his speech; I am sure that he just grabbed something that sounded good because he was too busy (read lazy) to come up with something himself and was unwilling to pay someone to write something for him. The harm is in not valuing the students enough to take the time to present something from his own heart and assuming that they were not smart enough to figure out that he was plagiarizing someone’s work. In short, he was dishonoring the students as well as everyone else that was there. The other thing that bothers me is how Jones makes the case that Johnson is “a good person,” serving the community, etc. and that is why we should give the guy a break. This is a good example of how the “good old boys” system works — you have people that commit fraud and other sins that are otherwise protected by their peers and those overseeing them, and thus they go on victimizing. I would think of the high school incident as having peeled back a corner of Johnson’s veneer; there are other incidents that also served to peel back some of the veneer. We need to pay attention to these “exposures” of someone’s real character, and ask more questions. Jean Damon, McKinleyville
we can expect all sides to fight hard and as fair as the rules allow. Such things can break either way, so don’t be a sore loser. True “environmentalists” fully support mass transit in almost all forms, including rails. Trails are nice amenities, but they are not going to serve or save planet Earth. Here behind the Redwood Curtain it is easy to hide from the harsher realities and we tend to think of environmentalism in simplistic terms, however it involves a lot more than cycling, and recycling. If the north-south rail line was still working, we would not now be widening Richardson Grove for truck traffic — think about that for just a minute. One can easily be so busy hugging a tree that they can’t see the forest. I agree that the east-west rail line proposal is ridiculous and costly. Further, not needed if the existing north-south line is restored to service. The cost to restore the north-south line, or to abandon it (with remedial clean-up) is probably about the same, and either will require public subsidy. BTW, mass transit (as with our massive carbon-intensive highway infrastructure) will rarely “pay for itself,” and that was very disingenuous argument, coming from the left. Terry A. Clark, Bayside
denigrates one’s accusers. Oh, and don’t neglect to say what a great person one is, you know, deep down inside. These students are bright, so trust me they get the real message, even if it’s not the one we pretend to send. James “Bronco” Weseman, Eureka

Complete this project and you will reduce the need of a safety designation along 101, create tourism and recreational opportunities for the months weather permits, and you might instill a sense of community in those who are willing to participate. Randy Myers, Arcata Editor: The introduction to the Ralph M. Brown Act describes its purpose and intent: “In enacting this chapter, the Legislature finds and declares that the public commissions, boards and councils and the other public agencies in this state exist to aid in the conduct of the people’s business. It is the intent of the law that their actions be taken openly and that their deliberations be conducted openly. The people of this state do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies which serve them. The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may retain control over the instruments they have created.” The “public servants” over the last 59 years have made sure this guard dog has no teeth: No one has ever gone to jail for violating it. If they had, our city councils
and boards of supervisors would be acting very differently. Walt Frazer, Eureka
A Couple of Things
Editor: Jud Ellinwood’s letter in the Aug. 1 issue, (“Train Talk”) hit the nail on the head when he said “Humboldt County wants and deserves better.” There seems to be different, sometimes opposing views, but few on what is best for Humboldt County. Most of us just want things to get better for Humboldt County because we also believe what Ellinwood does. “About that Speech” (“Mailbox,” Aug. 1) elicited strong opinions on both sides. I don’t know Dan Johnson, but college graduate or not, he is a successful businessman and his ethics should have made him realize it is not OK to take credit for something he had no role in creating. Those defending him are not helping him by referring to what he “gives.” More than plagiarism, it is Mr. Johnson’s error in judgment where he felt he could use his position as a speaker to single out his daughter on a day when all graduates earned that celebration. Whether he resigns or not, Mr. Johnson needs to show his remorse through some action and not words elicited because he got caught doing something wrong. John Chiv, Eureka
Thoughts on Solitary
Editor: In response to “Hunger Pangs” (“Mail-
box,” July 25) — a commentary on the hunger strikes in California prisons: It is true that many (not all) of the prisoners locked in long-term solitary confinement have committed terrible crimes. It is true that a number of them have committed the most heinous acts, and through whatever situation and circumstance have permanently lost their humanity. Solitary confinement for more than 15 days is considered torture by the United Nations. Prolonged solitary confinement — especially the specifically brutal conditions at Pelican Bay and other California prisons — is torture by any definition, a most heinous crime itself. It is also ineffective, usually unnecessary, and more expensive to house someone in solitary confinement. The biggest cost, however, is to our own humanity — a terrible thing to lose. Beverly Titus, Eureka Editor: In response to Susan Dodd’s letter regarding the hunger strike at Pelican Bay: “I hope all those guys starve to death.” Really? Wow!! Billie Crowley, Trinidad
Editor: I was delighted to see Barry Evans’ Field Notes article (“Trees, Please!” July 4) about street trees in the Journal.

and bicyclists, something we know to be an issue in Eureka. I wanted to take a moment to encourage residents of the greater Eureka area to contact me, or Keep Eureka Beautiful, if they are interested in signing up for the local programs to plant trees. Redwood Community Action Agency and Keep Eureka Beautiful are funded separately to do this work, so there are plenty of opportunities to get trees for low or no cost. Both existing programs help with permits, picking a site for the tree that doesn’t interfere with existing infrastructure, utilities or local ordinances, and reducing costs and planting work for homeowners. We collaborate to make sure that local needs are met wherever feasible. Please get in touch soon if you are interested in finding out more about programs in and near Eureka! I would be happy to walk you through the process and refer you to the program that suits your unique circumstances. I can be reached by email at Natalie@nrsrcaa. org or by phone at 269-2059. Thank you for helping us make Eureka a more pleasant, safe and lovely place to live, work and love life! Natalie Arroyo, Eureka

Lessons in the Ashes As Orleans blazes smolder, critics say logging profits are undermining fire prevention By Grant Scott-Goforth email@example.com
Large fires in and around Orleans last week have sparked new criticism of the Forest Service’s plan to reduce wildland fires in the remote and mountainous community. The Dance Fire burned more than 600 acres before firefighters contained it on Friday. Flames destroyed the home of a tribal elder, as well as two other outbuildings. And the blaze came dangerously close to consuming even more tribal housing. Since then, three fires on nearby Sawyers Bar Road grew to nearly 8,500 acres, with only 11 percent contained as of Tuesday morning. As the firefighting continued, residents and Karuk tribal officials complained that Orleans homes were put in unnecessary danger and some land was needlessly sacrificed to the flames because the Forest Service had allowed logging profits to color its decisions about fire prevention. The Forest Service denies that, countering that it has chosen areas to thin timber because they were the best places to defend the community, not because the lumber there was profitable.
In August 2008, Six Rivers National Forest Supervisor Tyrone Kelley approved a plan to reduce fire danger on public land near Orleans. The plan — designed in collaboration with the Karuk Tribe, fire safety groups, environmentalists and the community — called for logging and clearing dense underbrush so that fires can’t burn as hot, fast and destructively. Under the plan, a handful of pruning and burning techniques were to be used to thin nearly 2,700 acres of forest. About 1,300 of those acres were designated for commercial logging, and the remaining 1,400 were noncommercial. But the plan got off to a troubled start. In 2010 the Karuk Tribe, the Environmental Protection Information Center (EPIC), the Klamath Forest Alliance and the Klamath Siskiyou Wildlands Center sued the Forest Service, after a logging company hired to thin trees used cable yarding — a logmoving system that uses cables that can damage trees — near a sacred Karuk trail. A court-ordered settlement resolved the dispute in 2011, with an admonishment that the Forest Service must include the tribe in further planning. continued on next page northcoastjournal.com • North Coast Journal • Thursday, aug. 8, 2013

Then, last year, EPIC complained about the Forest Service’s practice of tractor logging. Kimberly Baker, the executive director of the Klamath Forest Alliance and a public land advocate for EPIC, said the tractor logging causes “serious soil damage and compaction” and that EPIC expressed its concerns to the Forest Service. “They have listened to our complaints — and that’s about all I can say. We haven’t necessarily seen a change in tactics but they are more aware of our concerns,” she said. On Friday morning, retired schoolteacher Sue Terence was inside her house with the air purifier on, a half mile from the Butler Fire that sparked overnight last Wednesday. “I can hardly think straight,”
8 North Coast Journal • Thursday, aug. 8, 2013 • northcoastjournal.com
she said. “The nearest ridge is the only one of three that we can see. Our oxygen level is going down quickly.” Local crews had held the fire to the neighboring watershed, Terence said, and Friday morning state and federal firefighters — fresh from fighting the Dance Fire — had taken over. As crews raced to contain the latest fire in the Salmon River complex, Terence said she worries that the Forest Service’s funding for the fuel reduction plan is tied to its profits from logging. Without strict oversight, she said, logging can actually create conditions that feed future fires. Logging — particularly helicopter salvage logging — has left large amounts of slash and vast fields of dense brush,
Terence said. Logging companies paid for roads and made their profits, she said, and “now we’re facing the costs of the catastrophe that follows.” Still, she added, she understands the Forest Service’s problems. It has the unenviable task of fixing 100 years of poor fire management, and its fuel reduction plan is still in its infancy. The Karuk Tribe and Klamath Watershed Council have been working with residents and communities to thin highrisk areas on private land, Terence said, but fuel reduction on public lands is only lurching forward. The Healthy Forests Restoration Act, signed in 2003, was designed to protect forest communities, but Terence said that in the case of Six
Rivers National Forest, thinning is too concentrated on ridgelines. Bill Tripp, of the Karuk Department of Natural Resources, worries that the fuel removal plan has focused on valuable timberland instead of homes and communities. “I would’ve rather seen the money spent on implementing the priorities in the community wildfire protection plan,” he said. That plan, called the Orleans/Somes Bar Community Wildfire Protection Plan, was developed in 2009 by local fire safe councils, the Karuk Tribe, the Forest Service and others. It lays out guidelines for preventing and fighting fires based on the unique and rugged topography of the Salmon River. But the plan is just a recommendation, which Tripp says the Forest Service ignored when it prioritized which areas to protect. “We need to kind of get people back together and figure out how we’re going to address some of these priorities in the community’s plan and not keep falling back to the economic value the resources provide as the reason for why an area is treated.” Tyrone Kelley, forest supervisor for Six Rivers National Forest, said that’s just not what’s going on. The Forest Service may have had some early clashes with critics over its logging methods, but it has always focused on protection before profits, he said. “It’s a tough piece of ground back there,” Kelley said over the weekend, taking a moment from coordinating with firefighters still trying to get a handle on three newer blazes. Despite “early struggles,” Kelley was optimistic about the progress made on reducing fuels. He thinks that more advanced planning and work with the Karuk tribe to recognize archaeological sites will reduce cultural concerns. While he didn’t have specific figures in front of him, Kelley said only 500 to 700 acres of the project area was timberland. Logging wasn’t an emphasis, Kelley said, and all proceeds from that logging went back into the fuel reduction plan. The focus on ridgelines, he explained, was considered the best defense for Orleans from fires that started out of the area. With a sort of defeated chuckle, Kelley said that wasn’t much good when

it came to the Dance Fire, which began inside the community. The cause of the Dance Fire is under investigation, according to the Forest Service. Despite the disagreements, both sides praised each other for expanding lines of communication and a mutual commitment to an end — if not a means. It’s not just prevention tactics that raise concerns among community members. Kimberly Baker said EPIC is concerned about the Forest Service’s practice of bulldozing firebreak lines. She said fire crews cut 200 miles of bulldozer lines in Shasta-Trinity National Forest in 2008. Backburning — when firefighters light smaller, controlled fires to stop a fire’s progress — is also problematic, because it can cause high severity fires that kill trees, Baker said. Tripp, the Karuk resources official, said that with better fuel reduction efforts around Orleans, a Karuk elder may not have lost her home. After meeting with the Forest Service and community members this week, Tripp said he hoped the Dance Fire would serve as a wake-up call that fuel reduction efforts need to increase. It’s time to act now, Terence said, because without quick, dedicated repairs, the last century’s logging damages will fuel more devastating wildfires in Orleans and neighboring towns on the Salmon and Klamath Rivers. l

Arkley Lawyers: Back Off, Journal
The letter arrived late last week, printed on the letterhead of Mitchell, Brisso, Delaney & Vrieze, LLP, attorneys at law, and its warning was dire. “The North Coast Journal’s continued attempts to contact Mr. [Rob] Arkley ... border on civil harassment.” Signed by attorney Russell S. Gans, the letter was addressed to Journal Publisher Judy Hodgson. And it meant business. “If this practice continues,” Gans cautioned ominously, “Mr. Arkley will consider all legal protections available to him, including any options to pursue a civil harassment restraining order.” Just what the hell have our writers been doing, you ask? Did we nestle in his hedges, cradling bazooka-sized Nikon lenses? Did we fly to Louisiana and ninja it onto the roof of his palatial estate? Did we take our luggage up to South Fork Mountain waiting for his baby, the eastwest train? Well, no. We did try to call him on the phone, though. We freely admit it. Here’s the deal. Back when this writer was researching a 2012 story comparing corporate bankruptcy rules and attitudes to private bankruptcy, Mr. Arkley issued a decree. Neither he nor his employees at Security National, a real estate holding and servicing corporation, were to have anything to do with us. He informed our publisher that he was having his IT guy block all emails sent by Journal staff. He was done with us. Trouble is, what with our reporting jobs and Arkley’s position as a public figure/ occasional newsmaker, we have, Your Honor, tried to reach him or his associates post-decree. About four times in the last year and a half, as best we can recall — twice to ask about the indefinite closure of the Arkley Center for Performing Arts and twice seeking comment on the end of Economic Fuel, the business competition he funded for eight years. As the letter accuses, we even tried calling him (once) on his unlisted home phone, a number our publisher has had for years. Are we in trouble? Bound for the slammer? Should we throw ourselves on the mercy of the courts? “I just can’t imagine a court would issue a restraining order based on that,” said Jim Ewert, legal counsel for the California Newspaper Publishers Association.

Newspapers operate by asking questions of people who are newsworthy and who cast a wide net of influence, which he has.” So we can even call people who’d rather we didn’t? According to Ewert, yes. We can. Read the full letter on the Journal’s website. ● BY RYAN BURNS / MONDAY, AUG. 5 AT 5:12 P.M.
EPD Chief Candidate Out
Michael Johnson, the current chief of police in Anderson and a former sergeant with Eureka Police Department, has reportedly withdrawn his candidacy after being (conditionally) offered the job of Eureka’s next chief, according to the Lost Coast Outpost. Seems Johnson was peeved about the city’s indecision, peeved that he couldn’t get a hold of City Manager Bill Panos and peeved about the hiring process, which he called “unprofessional” in a letter to Panos. Panos said that while he can’t comment on specifics, the search for the city’s next police chief “is taking a little longer than we thought. But we’d rather be really thorough in our determination.” So thorough, in fact, that Panos said, “We have in place probably the most comprehensive review/background investigation of police candidates at any time in the city’s history.” He said he’s hoping a decision will be made by Sept. 1 or earlier. ● BY CARRIE PEYTON DAHLBERG / FRIDAY, AUG. 2 AT 7:46 P.M.

According to a press release, officers found multiple illegal stream diversions, un-permitted grading and buildings, pollution and (yuck) human waste at a pair of large, adjacent grow operations in Maple Creek. The Sheriff’s Office arrested Roger Miller, 32, and his wife, Amy Miller, 41.

Poison, Dead Animals at Marijuana Grow
Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies and other law enforcement agents found and eradicated a marijuana grow yesterday morning in the Supply Creek Watershed on the Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation. Along with 8,473 marijuana plants, they found a dead fisher at the site. Fishers are currently being reviewed as candidates for the endangered species list. At a separate event on Monday, agents found 7,521 marijuana plants at a grow site in Willow Creek, along with two dead deer and a dead bird. According to a sheriff’s office press release, deputies and researchers found

Deputies also located fresh hot dogs strung from a tree on treble fish hooks, along with two dead deer carcasses and a bird, a Hermit thrush. Officers also witnessed environmental damage to the watershed. A third raid on Thursday turned up even more fertilizers and rodenticides at a grow site near Orleans. ● BY RYAN BURNS / THURSDAY, AUG. 1 AT 3:41 P.M.
Arcata: 17th Hippiest U.S. City
Talk about your dubious honors. A real estate blog called Estately has published a list of U.S. cities that provide “ideal habitat for the next generation of flower children.” And Arcata, our local bastion of hula hoops, sophomore dreadlocks and puppies on ropes, landed at No. 17. But dude, check this out. Even though that’s technically the bottom of the list, we’re actually at the top because the list is in, like, reverse order, man. What crazy sorts of algorithmic super-math went into this socio-municipal hippie study? The post explains: [W]e used a formula based on marijuana availability and legality, number of stores selling hemp, local counter-culture icons, tie-dye availability, hippie festivals, progressive government, intensity of Occupy protests, and a Facebook poll. Right on. So who’s (allegedly) hippier than Arcata? Bloomington, Ind., Berea, Ky., Missoula, Mont., Bisbee, Ariz., Ithaca, N.Y. ... Wait a minute. Kentucky? We got beat by a city in Kentucky? That’s embarrassing! We should consider this a call to, uh, flowers. Time to up our anachronistic counterculture game! Message to every local: Start acting hippier. Because you never know when a real estate blogger may be watching.
commitment to the First Amendment. The draft report also calls for 24-hour access to restrooms at the courthouse. Enacted in March, 2012, Ordinance 2477 limited the hours of protesting on the county courthouse from 6 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., among other restrictions on signs and tables. A subsequent ordinance modified the law, reducing some of the restrictions but keeping in place the ban on staking or hanging signs overnight and setting up temporary shelter. The subcommittee assigned to review the ordinances found that the emergency rules “dealt with issues largely covered by existing laws.” From the draft report: Ongoing public input has led the Humboldt County Human Rights Commission to the conclusion that Humboldt County needs to have a policy statement related to the protection of the First Amendment constitutional rights of the public, while at the same time protecting the rights of all people to a safe and healthy environment. The subcommittee proposed a statement, which included the following statement: It is reasonable to expect that members of the public may regularly use the courthouse grounds, and other county controlled properties, to address their elected officials through public displays, protests or other expressions of free speech. This has historically been the case, usually without incident. The Human Rights Commission will review the report on Thursday at 5 p.m. in conference room A in the Humboldt County Courthouse. It needs approval from the entire Human Rights Commission before it can be presented to the Board of Supervisors. A PDF of the report can be read on the Journal’s website.

I checked my pocket watch and spit in the dust. The first bullet whizzed overhead. The second hit the fence post. I scrambled behind a tree. “Where’s my wife, Dooley?” screamed the shooter near the woodpile. “I’m not Dooley,” I yelled. “My name’s Dickey.” “Ain’t this Meadow Road?” “Nope, it’s Monday Road.” “I’m from Wyoming chasing the lyin’ rascal my Marie ran off with.” “Mister, I don’t know no Marie.” Deafening silence.

The man and the woman stood facing each other on the trail, intent in their discussion. Their dog, a McNab, sat by them. The woman’s shoulders were tense, her hands clenched by her sides. The man’s shoulders slumped, and he leaned toward her, hands outspread at his sides. Something was decided: The woman turned abruptly and walked away rapidly south. The man looked after her, then walked slowly and uncertainly north. Their dog stood in the middle of the trail where the couple had been, frozen, looking first south, then north, then south, then north, as their figures diminished. — Andre Lehre Booklegger: Separation has an elegance in its economical description. A potent and painful human scene, using only body language and gestures, which are understood by the conflicted family dog. (Also among the favorites of: Blake’s, NCJ)

Go to sleep, honey. Tomorrow we’re moving to Aunt Lisa’s. It’ll be fun! I will take a last look, a last listen. I will sit in your dad’s leather chair, and feel the mold of his back on mine. I‘m sorry to leave that chair, but there‘s nowhere it can go. I‘ve called in all the favors I can. I will open my heart to what’s next. As we do. But the seven years of our lives in this house we loved taste like ashes to me now. Ashes. No need to clean. The bank can do that. — Sue Greene NCJ: A poignant scene about relationships — parent and child, borrower and lender, homeowner and home.
Bling. “The Journal is having a flash fiction contest. The word count is 9.” Said the text, from my girlfriend. Wow, that’s short. I could make a bad joke out of it, by adding three words to the end of Hemingway’s famous, six-word short story. “For sale: baby shoes, never worn. Baby sold separately.” I said out loud to my lazy cat. Bling. “9 or less. The due day is July 24.” Said the second half of the text. The contest was actually 99 words or less.

“If you’re lying, nerd, I’ll kill you,” the tall girl yelled to the small, ugly boy on the slope above her. “Look.” He pointed to glyphs incised in rocks and disappeared inside a cave.

A Small Yellow Cap
I came upon the island cemetery while hiking. Headstones for eight children, drowned when the school ferry went down. What happened on that November day 61 years ago? The foghorn bellowed. Disregarding fatigue, I started rowing back across the wide channel to my campground. The swift current persisted. I realized, “The tide has changed, it’s pushing me out to sea.” The rowing exhausted me. The fog thickened. I spotted a boy’s small yellow cap floating by. But I didn’t notice the jagged rock. After the rowboat sank, I swore I heard a young voice say, “We’re over here, mister.” — Neil Tarpey
Georges was 18, heading home to Quebec. I was 40, still searching for home. At Lake Louise Hostel, we shared dinner, canoed Lake Moraine. In Banff, we bid au revoir, though we’ve never seen each other again. Nowdays, Georges is a nephrologist; I am comfortably ensconced on my farm, tending cats, chickens, ducks, the land. One eve, I posted on Facebook that I was preparing zucchini-feta fritters with food from the garden.

One box contains Shakespeare’s completed works, wrapped in onion thin paper. One box contains six display cases, each with a blue morpho butterfly pinned to a square of foam. One box has a box inside of a box, but there must have been something inside once.

I drank in a bar named after a fish. I was invisible in the background of dangling arms and legs, which had little heart or head. After the bar closed, I staggered toward home alone. I climbed into my beautiful neighbor’s orange tree, like a drunken bear. I ripped oranges in half and drank the juices. I tossed piles of orange peels onto her perfectly cut grass.

“Sixty years you lived with me,” he shouted when she stepped out of the metro. “Sixty years!” I almost didn’t see her, shocked as I was by his accusation. I almost didn’t see her among the whirled faces, but she alone didn’t look, eyes finally focused forward, chin proud, as if she didn’t hear him at all or was too intent on beginning her new life, like a cicada that had just shed. — Edward Mack NCJ

I’m not kidding, it’s sublime.” “OK.” I slurp in the slick medicinal mass, tasting ocean, mud and snot — the taste of a bad tumble in the winter waves. “Jesus Mary, I though you said this was good!” The only likeable part was the way it slid past my gag reflex. She’s laughing. I look around. No, it’s

The berries were especially large and sweet that fall where his body had composted. — Joe Wixson BOOKLEGGER

Sitting on the bed and sneezing into my hand I get a whiff of week-old underpants. When I lie down on the orange polyester spread a horsefly zaps me repeatedly, honing in on sticky cheeseburger crumbs. I flick the fluorescents in the bathroom; he zooms toward the light and I close the door. Hours later, I see the fly on the sink washing his hands and I squash him with a wad of toilet paper. Back on the bed, it’s very quiet, it’s very cold, after killing the only living thing who knew where I was. — Peter Nash NORTHTOWN
Sara stole a glance back at the biker-looking dude that seemed to be following her in the mall parking lot. Terrified, she quickly opened her car door, got in and relocked it. Now the gray-haired man was actually knocking on her window. She could see now he had a patch on his riding leathers that said “Bikers for Jesus” and a silver crucifix on his neck. She rolled the window down a crack and asked him what he wanted. With a smile that reminded her of her father, he held her wallet and said: “you dropped this.” — Joe Wixson BOOKLEGGER NORTHTOWN
I knew he was a recovering addict when I met him. It didn’t stop me from falling deliriously in love. Within two months we were sharing a home. I often pondered his past. Too afraid to try anything stronger than a whiskey sour, I wanted to know why someone would give up his life for a needle and a full spoon. “What is it like — doing heroin?” I watched as his eyes glazed over and his face went soft.

The fearlessness. She IS stronger than me. I made sure to not get splashed by her entry. — Tyler A. Belarde BLAKE’S

Money and Action
A writer visits a dangerous country. Fiction’s his thing, but fiction won’t sell;
the world wants the world truly. He’s there but can’t find a story. So he gets himself kidnapped to have something to say. He’s in a high-end hotel surrounded by palms, wind teasing the bay, free to leave, but sits with paper and pen and his piña coladas, monitoring each mortal feeling he has. Downstairs, the captors get edgy. They want money, and action. They’ve started books, too, in their rooms. But no one will pay. What next? Torture? Decapitation? Or will he ransom himself, selfredeemed? — Kirk Nesset BOOKLEGGER

along by all the intoxicating party guys. His smartphone rang. A picture came up of him kissing the blond. “Yes?” he said. “It’s your wife you idiot. Where are you?” — Larry Strattner BLAKE’S
Revelation on the Pont de Bir-Hakeim
As I walked out on the Pont de BirHakeim, I encountered a lone figure fingering the keys of an accordion, which breathed a plaintive song. The sound stirred something in me so beautiful and melancholy that the moon herself strained to listen. He stopped playing long enough to tell me his name which sounded something like “God.” “’God’, comme Dieu??” I burst out laughing. I couldn’t help it; I just never expected to meet him this way. … Then, with a flourish, he handed me his business card. “Call me,” he said. Oh la la, what a flirt! Who knew? — Lisa Pelletier

ntil the advent of computers a few decades back, the technology du jour gave us metaphors for the brain. As I’ve written before (Field Notes, Dec. 6, 2012), hydraulic and pneumatic systems, steam and internal combustion engines, septic tanks, cotton mills and telephone switchboards have all been tapped for brain metaphors as thinkers try to understand thinking. Since about 1950, however, computers — from basic hardware and software systems to the internet as a whole — have consistently occupied that primetime metaphor spot. One problem with any brain metaphor is scale. Each of these three-pound lumps of gray neural network wetware squished into deep folds and valleys inside our skulls contains about as many neurons as there are stars in the Milky Way. That’s a hundred billion neurons, give or take, each of which has hundreds of connections with its neighbors. We’re not even close to reproducing that sort of complexity even in our most advanced parallel-processing computers. Another problem, the one I want to discuss here, is the one of predictability. Computer neurons, that is, silicon-based input-output switching devices, have no functional leeway. Give any one of them a certain input and it’ll respond with a certain output, day in, day out. If actual neurons were similarly reliable (and boring), how could we explain our flashes of entirely unpredictable inspiration and creativity that seem to come out of nowhere, not to mention our delusions, obsessions, depression, anxiety and all the rest of our fickle inner lives? Why would we experience ourselves as capricious, subject to both genius and craziness, if neurons were simply switches?
In answer to that question, philosopher Dan Dennett has taken brain metaphors to a whole new level. A couple billion years ago, he reminds us, before the dawn of multicellular life, the progenitors of our neurons were independent, self-contained eukaryotic cells (cells with nuclei) that “lived and fended for themselves for about a billion years as free-swimming, free-living little agents.” As they were coopted into the multi-celled clusters that we know as our bodies and brains, most of them made the transition without struggle. So, today they work in harmony, unswervingly and loyally. Most of them. Dennett proposes that a genetic mutation caused some cells, especially those that ended up in our cortical areas, to return to their primitive states, “like what happens when you let sheep or pigs go feral, and they recover their wild talents.” The idea is that on occasion, some neurons rebel, creating fiefdoms that struggle amongst themselves for dominance. When that happens, the normal cooperative democracy of our brain cells gives way to an anarchy of infighting, resulting in the complex gamut of emotion and inspiration that seems to be a hallmark of our species. Could there be any truth to this rogue neuron scenario? At this point, it’s impossible to say one way or another. What Dennett’s proposal does do is to question the assumption that the neurons of a brain are all on the same team. And, as in so much of science, the question may be more important than the answer. l Barry Evans (firstname.lastname@example.org) counted the neurons in his brain and found himself short by a few million. Which didn’t come as a total surprise. northcoastjournal.com • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, AUG. 8, 2013

want to talk about soup. Some say soup is a cold weather dish, but I think it’s just seasonal. In winter, I make stews; in summer, I make soups. It’s just another way to eat the delightful treats we get at the market around this time. The thing about soup is you can make it with almost anything you have in the fridge, as long as you have stock. Stock is dead easy to make. Here’s what you do: get some chicken parts. Use raw parts; I know it’s tempting to use the rest of that roast chicken carcass, but it just doesn’t taste nice. Go to the store and get what’s on sale — wings, legs and whatever other parts they have — any bits, as long as they appear reasonably consumable and weigh about three-fourths of a pound to 1 ¼ pounds. Of course, finer quality meat makes tastier stock, but do what you can. Using less chicken results in slightly weaker stock. Go ahead and make twice as much if chicken is on sale. Hearts and necks are fine, but liver’s not. If you are making a dinner from the whole chicken, save the neck, wing tips and giblets for stock; they’ll only make about a cup and a half on their own, but you also can save them for a larger pot. Don’t just put fatty skin in. You need bones and meat or the stock will taste like bad, bad Chinese food. If there are bones, bash ‘em with a meat hammer or heavy knife before they go in the pot so the yummy marrow goes in the mix.

Brown all chicken parts in a deep, heavy bottomed pot with 2 tablespoons of olive oil over a medium flame. You’ll need to let the chicken rest undisturbed for several minutes and gingerly lift a bit to see if it’s coloring. It will take five to eight minutes to get nice and browned. Rotate the chicken. Loosen up all the brown bits with a spoon so they don’t burn.
Throw in half of a chopped onion, a bay leaf, a few sprigs of parsley, maybe half of a celery rib and a carrot. The last two have strong flavors, so go easy. Then pour in at least 6 cups of water, making sure the chicken is well covered. Simmer, DON’T BOIL, for at least 45 minutes and up to two hours. Pour the stock through a strainer. If you’re worried about fat, chill the strained stock and remove the solidified layer of fat with a spoon. Vegetable stock is easy, too, but you can mess up by using strongly flavored herbs and vegetables; I loathe the taste of celery in veggie stock, although many people love it. Cruciferous vegetables can make stock smell bad. Instead, you can save the green ends of leeks and toss one in. Start by coarsely chopping a wellscrubbed potato, two carrots, one onion and five to 10 button mushrooms (not totally necessary). Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a heavy-bottomed pan over medium high heat, and toss in the veggies and three or four cloves of unpeeled garlic. Stir once to coat them in the oil and let them sit for five minutes to brown. Stir them again and brown them for at least five more minutes. The longer you brown, the better. Add a small handful of parsley stems and 6 cups of water. Bring it to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 45 minutes. Strain and season. Do this often enough so you have stock when you need it. This large batch is enough to serve four. PHEW! We have stock. Now the world of quick soup is open to us! Revel in our freedom to use almost every vegetable languishing in the crisper to quickly make nourishing and delicious soup! ●
Dad’s Fresh Corn Soup The quickest. Serves two. Ingredients and Method: 2 ears fresh corn 1/ cup diced onion 3 1 tablespoon butter ¼ teaspoon curry powder 2 cups stock ¼ cup cream 3 tablespoon tomato puree 1 teaspoon diced green chiles salt Toppings: 2 tablespoons sour cream 2 teaspoons coconut milk ½ teaspoon horseradish chives
Slice kernels off the cobs. Melt the butter in a saucepan and fry the onion. Add curry powder and stock and bring it to a boil. Add the corn, cream, tomato paste and chiles, then simmer for five minutes. Pour half the soup into a blender and blend until smooth. Return the blended soup to the saucepan with the rest of the soup. Serve with toppings.
The Sea Grill
Sweet Potato and Cauliflower Soup This soup can be changed easily depending on what you have. For example, swap the cauliflower with broccoli, and the sweet potato with Yukon gold. It’s just as lovely. Serves two. Ingredients and Method: 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock 1 cup water 1 small sweet potato ½ yellow onion, chopped 1/ head cauliflower, choppe d 3 2 tablespoons butter 1 teaspoon tumeric pinch fresh oregano 1 tablespoon cream salt and pepper In 2 cups of chicken stock, boil one sweet potato chopped into ½ inch cubes. Meanwhile, in another pan, sauté the onion in the butter over medium heat for several minutes until translucent. Add the cauliflower and cook for
another few minutes before adding everything to the stock and sweet potato. Add water until the ingredients are mostly covered. Bring it to a low boil and cook for 5 to 7 minutes. As soon as the sweet potato is tender, add the spices and a minimum of salt. Pour the soup into blender and blend for at least a minute. Return the soup to the pan over medium heat and stir in the cream. Salt and pepper to taste. At this point, a multitude of additions are possible; I like gnocchi and a small handful of finely chopped parsley, which can be cooked in the soup for 3 to 4 minutes until the gnocchi are tender. Shredded chicken or fried tofu are nice additions that make the soup a substantial meal. Frozen peas cooked a minute in the hot soup are also tasty, as are croutons or a spoonful of yogurt.

LIDA PENKOVA’S “SKELLIG MICHAEL: ONCE UPON A TIME.”
PHOTO COURTESY OF LIDA PENKOVA.
Along the Way By Ken Weiderman
ometimes I feel pissed,” confesses artist Lida Penkova, “because I do almost nothing else but paint, and I feel that somehow life is escaping me!” It’s not so much that Penkova’s life is escaping her, but that she’s pouring it into her whimsical, worldly and wondrous paintings and prints. “Once you are in this fascination of creating you can’t stop it!” she exclaims, her blue eyes bright beneath a tidy wave of dark hair. Every day, toiling over her latest work, she’s in love with her art and art-making. Born in Czechoslovakia, Lida Penkova was destined to wander. At an early age, she moved to England, and then to Germany. In each country she stayed for lengthy periods, soaking up the sights, the people, the colors. She’s not your typical traveler, consuming cultures for a few days before moving on to the next. Penkova prefers to hang around for a while, experiencing everyday life like going to the market or chatting with a neighbor. Along the way, she attained a psychology degree and ended up in Mexico, where she stayed for 16 years. Working as a psychotherapist in Tepoztlán, Mexico, Penkova found herself entranced by the stories surrounding her small village. She became fascinated with ancient cultures and the ways in which
pull-out A RT sect i on
A RTS ! ARCATA PG 26
their legends continue to infuse our world with “the myth that still defines an echo in everyday life.” Absorbing the art and spirituality surrounding her in Tepoztlán, Penkova listened to “what people tell each other, what they celebrate, what they believe in.” The experiences in Mexico were foundational to her aesthetic sense and narrative sensibility. After moving to the United States, she finally decided that she needed to give her favorite stories form. She decided to become an artist. Fourteen years later, Penkova is a selftaught painter and printmaker. Believing that anyone can be an artist, she wears her self-taught status as a badge of honor. Not weighed down by formal instruction, she doesn’t feel the need to follow any rules about what to paint or how to paint. “Look at my perspectives,” she exclaims, laughing. “Sometimes they are totally screwed! Who cares?” Penkova’s vision drives her, and her untrained hand harmonizes with her subject matter. The unconventional structures of her images help strip away any artistic preconceptions viewers might hold, allowing them to focus on the stories first. Indeed, the unschooled nature of her works lends a kind of sincerity to the stories she paints. Like the indigenous tales she loves, no outside conventions have been imposed

upon her aesthetic. Penkova’s inspiration comes from her extensive trove of travel memories. An experience will stand out to her, and when she finds an interesting story she learns as much about it as she can. She examines the visual possibilities of the tale, imagining the look of important characters, the expressions on their faces and the spatial relationships. “Then I just go and paint them and see what happens,” she says with an infectious giggle. Although Penkova is honoring the original narrative that inspired her, she’s not interested in an exact representation of the story. These are her impressions of the events — her interpretations of how they might look. For her, “It’s a mixture of fantasy and physical reality.” For example, during a recent trip to Ireland she was captivated by the interplay between modern religion and the lingering elements of paganism. One linocut print, “The Wren Boys of Dingle,” depicts a parade of curious creatures merrily ambling along with musical instruments and funny costumes. A bird with human legs soars over quaint cottages while dolphins and a reclining, floating cat observe, bobbing around in wavy black and white streaks of water. It’s the kind of image that makes you smile as you conjure up an explanation of what it means. As with
many of Penkova’s linocuts, the readily identifiable graphic elements and strong, contrasting lines provide a comforting balance to the mysterious subject matter. Another Irish-inspired print, “Skellig Michael: Once Upon A Time,” is an example of Penkova’s deftness with narrative complexity. It’s a busy image, filled with layers of meaning. Monks are paddling, praying, and plowing, surrounded by mythical creatures and craggy peaks. A few animals reveal the permeable boundaries of her influences. The flat, dappled appearances of a manta ray, flying fish and snake have direct references to the Australian aboriginal art Penkova previously studied. To boil down such complex stories into the confines of a single image requires someone who is truly paying attention. “I feel like I’m the source of something mysterious when I do art,” says Penkova, “I just can’t give it up.” Those thrilling instants when a piece is finally finished are her favorite moments. She says she feels free from the demands of her creative impulses, but her husband laughs knowingly. “In a few hours you’ll be back to starting a new one,” he tells her. To see some of her latest paintings and prints, be sure to visit the Upstairs Gallery in Arcata during the month of August. An Arts! Arcata reception will be held Aug. 9 from 6 to 9 p.m. ●

MAKING PAINTING EASIER • Take time to caulk all joints, cracks and seams in the surface before painting. • Always clean the surface to be painted. Use a wire brush, sanding block or power sander to remove loose paint and grime before applying the primer coat. • Fill in any cracks or large holes appearing on the surface with wood putty before starting the painting job. • Use plastic or paper drop cloths to cover sidewalks, shrubbery or other areas needing protection.
STEP 2: PROVEN PAINTING POINTERS • Use masking tape where two paint colors come together for a much neater job. • When you’re painting corners, always use the ﬂat side of the brush. • First, dip the paintbrush into the can to load the bristles about half-way with paint, touch the brush lightly to the surface at several points to apply spots of paint. After applying the spots of paint, use long leveling brush strokes to smooth out the spots. • You can purchase rollers for painting larger ﬂat surface areas.
STEP 3: CLEANING UP AFTER THE PAINT JOB • Take care of your brushes by cleaning them carefully

Live magic with Humboldt Light Opera By William S. Kowinski email@example.com
hrek was a multimillion-dollar animated movie that spawned a multimillion-dollar Broadway show. Humboldt Light Opera Company doesn’t have access to that level of support. Nevertheless, its production of Shrek The Musical, now on the Van Duzer Theatre stage at HSU in Arcata, is big, bold, fast and assured. It’s also ogre-sized fun. It’s not just that a cast of seemingly thousands fills the stage for the opening number. Before the first act is over we’ve met a Pinocchio whose nose really grows longer when he lies, a Gingerbread Man imprisoned on a pan, and most spectacularly, a huge dazzling lady dragon who sings like disco queen Donna Summer. There are tap-dancing rats in top hats and tails, three blind mice from Motown and an evil lord who sings his song of woe and ambition while taking a bubble bath. With one wonder after another, the high-energy first act is especially exhilarating. The romantic tensions and complications of the second act slow the pace and color the mood, but there’s still plenty to hold the attention of children as well as adults. The story of the musical is pretty much the same as the movie: a fairy tale about an ogre and his donkey sidekick, an evil lord and a princess in a tower. It takes several twists and turns before its happily ever after.
32 North Coast Journal • Thursday, AUG. 8, 2013 • northcoastjournal.com
Most fairy tales work on several levels, and the best shows for children (from Looney Tunes and the Fractured Fairy Tales through Sesame Street and Mathnet) provide nuggets of satire and knowing humor for adults. Shrek on screen was practically a genial deconstruction of the fairy tale princess monomyth, as well as a contemporary moral reconstruction and redefinition. The musical adds to this with the sly satire of playwright David LindsayAbaire’s lyrics, and the collision of bright and evocative musical styles composed by Jeanine Tesori. In addition to the story, even the main voices will seem familiar to young fans of the movie. As Shrek, Tristin Roberts adopts Mike Myers’ slightly Scottish accent, and James Gadd does a credible Eddie Murphy as Donkey. Roberts as Shrek acts the part convincingly, carries the action and sings with authority. But even without animated close-ups, stage Shrek is quickly lovable and never threatening — sympathy for the ogre is easy. For me the revelation of the evening is Gadd as Donkey. Liberated from the constraints of his usual romantic hero roles, he’s fully committed to silliness. He writhes and dances wildly, is infectiously funny and sings better than ever. Hannah Jones is a delightfully complete Princess Fiona, with the traditional virtues of a fairy tale heroine while embodying an anxious contemporary girl whose dreams
for the perfect love match include “our pre-nup will be binding.” As the evil Lord Farquaad, Craig Waldvogel plays his physically difficult role with aplomb and sings it with conviction, so he’s comically intimidating. HLOC productions are known for the quality of singing, but in this show the singing is as uniformly thrilling as in any show I can recall. That’s true of all the singers, notably Cindy Cress as the voice of the dragon, and the two younger versions of Princess Fiona: Haley Cress and Kayla Kossow. The dancers amplify the bright showbiz energy. As choreographed by Ciara Cheli-Colando (who also dances), they include Daphne Endert, Katie Kitchen, Shelly Harris, Katri Pitts, Fiona Ryder, Lily Ryman and Jake Smith. This production also has the great advantage of a skilled 15-piece orchestra (conducted by Justin Sousa) that’s out front in a real orchestra pit, providing the volume and dynamics of a big musical wave that the voices and movement on stage can ride with confident enthusiasm. The magnificent 27-foot-tall dragon created by Roger Cyr is a North Coast stage wonder. Set and lighting design by Jayson Mohatt, costume design by Kathryn Masson and Carol Ryder, makeup and hair design by Carli McFarland, and ogre makeup by Carlene and Rachel Cogliati are all excellent contributions. Even more than usual, director Carol Ryder has orchestrated magic. I’m guessing this production would be an exciting experience for children and a marvelous introduction for first timers to the particular excitement of live theatre. This is the most ambitious HLOC production I’ve seen, and easily among the best. Even at dress rehearsal it was the most fun I’ve had at a musical since HLOC’s Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Shrek the Musical continues at the Van Duzer Theatre for just two more weekends, through Aug. 18.
Nothing new is opening but it’s a remarkable few weeks for the number of shows running simultaneously on the North Coast. Apart from Shrek the Musical, the musical Victor/Victoria completes its run this weekend (on Aug. 11) at Ferndale Rep, and the comedy The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife plays weekends at North Coast Rep until Aug. 17. Meanwhile, Shakespeare’s As You Like It and Sarah Ruhl’s Late: A Cowboy Song alternate at Redwood Park in Arcata through Sept. 1, produced by Plays in the Park. l

This’ll be a fun show, for example: Austin’s Black Irish Texas plays The Logger Bar on Thursday as part of a West Coast tour promoting the band’s latest effort, An Ode to Saint Cecilia. Prior stagemates include Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, Scott H. Biram and Social Distortion, all appropriate given the blend of Celtic punk-twangy Americana served up at a high rate of speed. The Logger Bar is the perfect place to watch mohawked Mark Maughmer II set his fiddle ablaze. Other band members include James “Fitzy” Fitzsimmons on guitar and vocal duties, James Sheeron on drums, Shannon Morino on upright bass — upright bass! — and Chad Fitzsimmons on banjo. Local fave Rooster McClintock opens and the music, promises promoter Ian Hiler, “starts at 8 p.m. sharp.” Pull up blackirishtexas.com to hear some tunes — and learn the words so you can throw back some Jameson and sing along.
34 North Coast Journal • Thursday, AUG. 8, 2013 • northcoastjournal.com
Keeping the singing-along theme going, Arcata Theatre Lounge presents Chris Clay’s Karaoke on Friday. Doors opens at 8 p.m., cost is free with a minimum $5 beverage or food purchase and the evening is all ages — although parental guidance is strongly suggested as some of the more-than 100,000 songs to choose from contain “inappropriate” content. Rock ‘n’ roll, folks! It’s devil music! Some tips for karaoke novices, courtesy of my karaoke-obsessed friends: Pick a song everyone knows because the crowd will be too busy instinctively singing it with you to notice how far away from the original tune you actually are; make up for your lack of singing talent by freeing those inner rock star moves previously only performed in the privacy of your kitchen; do not pick a ballad or a song over three minutes long or one with repeated instrumental gaps; do not attempt Zeppelin, Queen or Frank Zappa — and if you choose a Pink Floyd song then please warn your audience so they can use this time to visit the restroom, order another drink or go pick that thing out of their teeth.
’80s vs ’80s
Also on Friday, and also a perfect opportunity to sing along — or at least lip sync — to your favorite songs, are two versions of 1980s dance parties. In Arcata, at the Jambalaya, you’ll get DJ Red spinning all vinyl, just like in the olden days. Segues will be smooth and back-to-back tracks will make sense, just like when listening to the radio saved your teenage life. Easily the most authentic option, plus Friday is Arts! Arcata night, so you can drift through town and into
the night without driving. Should you be in Eureka, you’ll get an also-fun if more mish-mash of ’80s dance hits at the Palm Lounge, courtesy of the Pressure Anya DJs, who are celebrating the birthdays of The Lost Luvs’ Becky and Rondi. Dressing up encouraged. Hopefully both bars will have specials on wine coolers, too.
Oh, look! Another festival!
What would a summer Saturday in Humboldt be without a festival? This round it’s the Blue Lake Music Festival and Picnic out in Perigot Park. On offer, the usual food, beverages, children’s area, beer and wine, art, wares and dancers, plus music by Motherlode, The Foggy Bottom Boys, Silver Hammer, Blue Rhythm Revue, Doug Fir and the 2x4s, The Movers and the Shakers, Abstract and Seed. Also, barbecue. Bring a couple of blankets, some reuseable picnicware and soak it all in.
Sexy stompin’ shakin’ sounds
Later that night, get dark and different at the Alibi, where one-man band Shake it Like a Caveman promises a tranceinducing experience via the electro blues combo of kick drum, hi hat, slide guitar, harmonica and vocals. Shake it’s Blake

Walk-ins Welcome Burris hails originally from Tennessee, but has toured often and extensively, racking up rave reviews from Austin to England. Listening to songs over at, what else, shakeitlikeacaveman.com reminded me of early ZZ Top, early Black Keys, a little Tom Petty on the sexy “Bad Girls” track, and some Scott H. Biram but with a more sultry stomp. I’m intrigued. I think you should go. Music’s at 11:30 p.m. and the cover is a whole $2. Dig it.

If you’ve been wanting to test the theory that anyone can play guitar (or brass, percussion or woodwind), College of the Redwoods offers the opportunity to buy two CR music classes and get one free through new Community Education classes. Each class is $149 –— but being able to pull out the guitar around the campfire and pick out an acoustic version of Soundgarden’s “My Wave” is a lifetime of entertainment gold. For schedules and more information, go to redwoods.edu and click on Community Education or call 269-4000.

Who doesn’t love a fair? Rides, games, fried food, livestock, crafts and more fried food. For a brief moment, I felt like I’d covered all that with Redwood Acres and the rodeo in Fortuna. But the Humboldt County Fair, now in its 117th year, is the mother of them all. It’s on from Aug. 14-25 at the Ferndale Fairgrounds, and resistance is futile. After all, you’re not going to stay home and miss that sweet cut-grass-in-the-evening smell, the tilt-a-whirl lights coming on at sunset and the joy of walking around and tipping your hat at your neighbors. Nor are you going to skip the races. There are a couple of ways to approach the races. Some bet with elaborate systems on every race, jealously guarding their picks. Other more capricious types choose a name and cross their fingers. Some people just look at it as a chance to wear a fancy hat. That might be the way to go for
the risk-averse, but why not gamble something? Even if you’re not a gambler, put down a few bucks, kiss your ticket for luck and yell like crazy when the horses make their final turn. (Full disclosure: Last year, after two horses dropped out of a race, I bet everything on Divorce Attorney — how is that horse not a money maker? — to win, place or show. It just had to stay out of the last two places. No such luck. Meanwhile, a 2-year old kid next to me picked the trifecta for her mother. You just never know.) If you prefer slower moving livestock, there are barns full of 4-H animals for you to inspect with your thumbs hooked in your pockets. Then you can grab a bag of toasty kettle corn and peruse exhibits and goodies from all over the county. On your way out, if you have any money left over from the carnival games and the races, pick up some jam or a pie and make that county fair feeling last a little longer. – Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

Off the Leash Your dog loves you, but sometimes it feels like everything is about you: Seeing you out the door, waiting for you to come home, listening to you complain about how someone’s chewed your remote. Let’s not be so self-centered, shall we? Woofstock is back in Halvorsen Park this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. ($12).

book Ghana Must Go Taiye Selasi, Penguin Taiye Selasi published her first story ever in 2011. She wrote “The Sex Lives of African Girls” in response to a challenge from the poet Toni Morrison, and it immediately won Selasi praise and a spot in last year’s Best American Short Stories collection. Selasi is the sort of talent described as precocious, only 33 and already considered a rising star. Her debut novel, Ghana Must Go, is first and foremost a family saga, but it is also an immigrant tale and a story of Africa. The title refers to the 1983 expulsion of Ghanaians from Nigeria, symbolically tying the novel’s events to divisive African immigration politics and the migrations of African people. Movement is important to the novel, which traverses Nigeria, Ghana and the East Coast, and its characters appear adrift, connected to many places, but not quite belonging to any. The novel begins with the family’s patriarch, Kweku, dying of a heart attack in his garden. Kweku is an immigrant boy made good, an unparalleled surgeon who sought to establish his family in upper-middle class America. But by the time of his heart attack, the family, according to one character, has become diffuse and lost its center. Kweku’s death becomes cause to reflect on how this came to be, and for drawing together the scattered, loose-knit family. Inevitably, this involves a return to Ghana, a reverse diaspora. The narrative moves not so much in chronological order as by peeling away layers. As we hear from each character in turn, we see them move in the present largely through association with their past, coming ever closer to the novel’s finale, and simultaneously moving closer to the key moments in their lives. This unique, expertly executed structure is one of the novel’s greatest strengths. However precocious a talent Selasi may be, there is no mistaking that this is a debut novel by a young writer, and the author’s inexperience occasionally shows. For example, though Selasi is capable of a breathtaking lyricism that’s hard to resist reading aloud, the quality of the prose is oddly uneven and sometimes plagued by flabbiness. The dialogue can be problematic too, throwing important scenes off-key, only moving the plot forward rather than playing two characters off of one another. And the earth-shattering revelations that the narrative works so meticulously to unwrap sometimes don’t live up to their hype, creating more anticipation than pay-off. Flaws aside, Ghana Must Go is a remarkable debut with a great deal to hold your interest. Keep your eye on Taiye Selasi. — Anthony Correale
Double Trouble If only the 2 Guns were aimed at Smurfs 2 By John J. Bennett firstname.lastname@example.org
2 GUNS. Mark Wahlberg previously worked with director Baltasar Kormákur on Contraband (2012), which became a surprise hit. This time they’ve enlisted Denzel Washington and a solid supporting cast to make another mildly fun, inconsequential caper picture borrowed from the catalog of Michael Mann. With Contraband I was struck by Kormákur’s liberal use of Mann’s visual style. In 2 Guns he departs from that influence a little but inserts enough tropes and details to suggest he’d just as soon be remaking Heat (1995). 2 Guns opens with Stig (Wahlberg) and Bobby (Washington) casing a sleepy little Texas savings and loan. Then we flash back a week to learn that they intend to rob the bank to get the attention of Sonora cartel head Papi Greco (Edward James Olmos), who stiffed them on a large-scale coke deal. They figure Papi’s got a couple million rat-holed away there, but when they knock over the S and L and find more than 10 times that amount, their troubles start stacking up. Turns out they’re both undercover agents, Stig for U.S. Navy Intelligence, Bobby for the DEA. And the money they stole didn’t belong to Papi after all. This is all revealed in the first act, leaving the bulk of the movie to serve as a loose framework of chase sequences and uninspired gun battles. The conclusion is predictable, the payoff minimal and any sense of menace or danger only materializes when Bill Paxton is onscreen — which is to say not nearly often enough.
MovieTimes have daddy issues, and the ending can’t come soon enough. When the energy and drama should be building, there’s only narrative vacuum. The pratfalls and process shots might be enough to keep little kids entertained, but there isn’t much here for anyone else. PG. 105m.
Denzel is so rich, he farts cash money.
Performances by charming, consummately watchable actors elevate this slightly, but it remains resolutely middleof-the-road and forgettable, though intermittently entertaining. R. 109m. THE SMURFS 2. There are 10 credited writers, 15 second unit and assistant directors and a cast loaded with surprisingly prominent talent. So if they divide the blame for this artistically pointless exercise in capitalism then no one has to feel especially guilty for what they’ve done to us. Sociopath Gargamel (Hank Azaria) has become a world famous stage magician and taken up residence in the Paris Opera House. He’s manufactured a couple of gray Smurflings called Naughties and is running perilously low on the “Smurf Essence” upon which his spells rely. Meanwhile, in Smurf Village, Smurfette’s (Katy Perry) birthday is marred by her annual nightmares and identity crisis. See, Gargamel actually made Smurfette in his nasty laboratory, and then Papa Smurf (the great Jonathan Winters) cast his own spell to bring her over from the dark side. The dark wizard creates a mystical portal to Smurf village and sends in one of the Naughties to kidnap Smurfette. He intends to exploit her insecurities to extract Papa’s secret formula, which would allow him to create enough Smurf Essence to basically enslave humanity and commit Smurf genocide. In the midst of all these sinister machinations are thrown Patrick Winslow (Neal Patrick Harris) and his family. I guess they assisted in the first movie, too; it doesn’t matter. Everybody runs around Paris, people
Rather than wasting time and money on Hollywood cash-grabs, why not support a great local business that actually embraces film art? This Thursday at Arcata Theater Lounge, La Dolce Video will be celebrating its fourth anniversary. Doors open at 6 p.m. for a blowout DVD sale, leading up to an 8 p.m. screening of three documentaries by late, legendary director Les Blank. From the press release: “The 42 films Les Blank made while partying with America’s quirkiest subcultures earned him a lifetime achievement award from the American Film Institute, amongst other honors. Rich in both anthropological value and an irresistible brand of down-home realness, the documentaries of Blank are marked by intimate glimpses into the lives of passionate people, their kitchens, their heritage, and most importantly, their parties.” We’re lucky to have La Dolce Video, a last bastion of love for cinema, a curated collection of great movies, and the type of small business that is the lifeblood of small-town America. So get out and celebrate their existence. — John J. Bennett On Saturday the ATL has Low Movie (How to Quit Smoking), not actually a “how to” film but rather the complete music video/short film collection of the cult band Low by filmmaker Philip Harder. 65m. 8 p.m. Sunday’s family feature is Hoodwinked (2005), a would-be-clever CGI take on Little Red Riding Hood. PG. 80m. And be your own Mystery Science Theater smartass at next Wednesday’s Sci-Fi Pint and Pizza Night, headlined by Battle of the Worlds, a 1961 Italian import complete with flying saucers and a “superelectronic brain.” Doors at 6 p.m. ELYSIUM. From South African director Neill Blomkamp (District 9), this sci-fi flick imagines a future where the superwealthy live on a space station while the rabble live on our ruined planet — until they send in Matt Damon, clad in a mechanical exoskeleton. Co-starring Jodie Foster. R. 97m. PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS. A teenager, who happens to be the son of Greek god Poseidon, goes after something called “the Golden Fleece” in this sequel based on the young adult book series. PG. 110m.
WE’RE THE MILLERS. A pot dealer (Jason Sudeikis), a stripper (Jennifer Aniston) and two punk kids pose as an all-American family while they head to Mexico for a drug deal in this gag-filled comedy. R. 100m. PLANES. Couple things you should know: 1. While this is a spin-off of Pixar’s Cars, it’s not made by Pixar. 2. It was originally set to go direct-to-video. But hey, it’s your money. PG. 92m.
THE CONJURING. A stylish, old-fashioned creepfest complete with haunted house and exorcism from the director of the first Saw. R. 112m. GROWN UPS 2. Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock and David Spade embarrass themselves and insult your intelligence. PG13. 101m. DESPICABLE ME 2. Reformed villain Gru (Steve Carell) and his cute little peanut minions get recruited by the AntiVillain League in this charming animated comedy. PG. 98m. THE HEAT. Sandra Bullock, as an overachieving FBI agent, and Melissa McCarthy, as a brash, foul-mouthed Boston cop, fight crime in this comedy from the director of Bridesmaids. R. 117m. RED 2. A group of retired CIA operatives get framed as international terrorists and have to fight back. Starring Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and Anthony Hopkins. PG13. 116m. TURBO. The latest from Dreamworks Animation imagines a garden snail who longs to be fast. Voice talent from Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti and Michael Peña. PG. THE WOLVERINE. Hugh Jackman busts out his pecs, lamb-chops and knuckle blades again as the gruff X-Man. This time he fights ninjas. PG13. 136m. — Ryan Burns

In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state. In the event tender other than cash is accepted the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter or right.

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 www.tacforeclosures.com/sales, 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.
