The Best and Worst of Us By Thadeus Greenson


n the face of natural disaster, the very best of humanity has been on display in Houston, Texas. People formed human chains across floodwaters to reach a man in his submerged car and pull him to safety. Pictures went viral of police officers carrying kids through waist-deep water, of everyday people trudging through with beloved dogs in their arms, even as exhaustion and anguish overtook their faces. As the waters rose, people outside the flood zones hitched up their boats and drove toward the flooding. Like the man from Texas City launching his plush ski boat into floodwaters still swelling from pouring rain who told a reporter, “I’m going to save some lives.” The staffs of the Houston Chronicle and the Houston Press (the area’s daily and alternative weekly papers, respectively), themselves victims of this disaster, waded through contaminated flood waters to tell the stories of those desperately waiting for help and those arriving to offer it. Some perished trying to save others. Houston Police Sgt. Steve Perez, 34 years in the department, drowned when he drove into a flooded underpass, heading toward the floodwaters and away from his home and family. Alonso Guillen, a 31-yearold DJ who’d moved to Texas from Mexico as a teenager, who borrowed a friend’s boat to help pull survivors from Harvey’s floodwaters. He and a friend — Tomas Carreon Jr. — drowned when that boat capsized around midnight on Aug. 30. As the Journal went to press, the death toll surpassed 60. Heartbreaking though it’s been, Harvey has showcased the best of us as a nation, as communities and individuals helped those who couldn’t help themselves. Our president, meanwhile, demonstrated the opposite in the hours before Harvey made landfall. As all eyes turned toward the storm, Donald Trump used the cloak of impending destruction to quietly announce — at 7 p.m. EST on a Friday — his pardon of Joe Arpaio, the former sheriff of Maricopa County.

Reasonable minds can differ on immigration policy, the tax code and national security. But Trump’s pardoning Arpaio was an undeniable trampling of the Constitution of the United States, and one cowardly timed for minimum political fallout. Arpaio, who spent 24 years as sheriff of the Arizona county that is home to Phoenix and styled himself as “America’s toughest sheriff” until he was voted out of office last year, was put under a federal court monitor due to a pattern of racial profiling that the U.S. Department of Justice deemed the worst in United States’ history. The man publicly referred to his county jail — which included a tent city out in the triple-digit heat — as a “concentration camp,” and inmates there died at rates far beyond the national average. He publicly bragged about making the food as inedible as possible and ran an online “mug shot of the day” contest, allowing the public to cast votes. His jail had a webcam recording female inmates using a toilet that was reportedly linked to by several pornographic websites. Numerous lawsuits were filed and won over Arpaio’s correctional officers assaulting inmates, the majority of whom were Latino. This was not a state prison full of convicts but a county jail — where the bulk of the population is to be considered innocent until proven guilty while awaiting trial. Most are there because they cannot afford bail. (In one egregious case, a legal U.S. resident spent 13 days in Arpaio’s jail after being pulled over for not using his turn signal before the case was dismissed.) Back in 2005, Arpaio started regular immigration patrols in which his deputies stopped cars with Latino drivers or passengers to check their immigration status. Those who couldn’t prove they were in the country legally were arrested. (Arpaio reportedly poured so many resources into these patrols his office couldn’t afford to investigate more than 400 sex crimes cases, including many with child victims.) A federal judge deemed the patrols racial profiling and a constitutional violation.

4  NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017 •

U.S. District Court Judge G. Murray Snow, a George W. Bush appointee, ordered Arpaio to stop racially profiling and enforcing federal immigration law. For years, Snow offered repeated warnings. Arpaio did not heed them and — violating a federal court order — kept racially profiling and illegally trying to enforce federal law. Federal prosecutors finally charged Arpaio with contempt in 2016 and he was found guilty in July. Unlike that man his deputies arrested for failing to use a turn signal in 2013, Arpaio was never taken into custody in this case. His mug shot was never taken. He never spent a night in jail. But he did face the prospect of a sixmonth sentence. Then, as the rain fell and the waters rose in Texas, as heroes readied their boats and surveyed their neighborhoods to see who might need help in the hours and days to come, Trump wielded one of the great powers of his office to pardon Arpaio — one of his presidential campaign’s first high-profile supporters — calling him an “American patriot.” He did so knowing that tales of heroism and images of people of all backgrounds helping each other would dominate the news cycle, sparing him justified criticism for shielding a bigot and a serial civil rights violator from the power of the very rule of law he spent decades sworn to uphold. There’s no question, Hurricane Harvey has showcased the very best in us as a nation. The very worst, too. Nor is there any question that in the weeks, months and even years to come, it’s up to each of us to display heroism and leadership in our local communities. This means helping and looking out for each other, believing in the rule of law and serving on juries. The story of Arpaio’s pardon hits close to home after a federal jury in McKinleyville ruled in favor of Daren Borges’ family on Aug. 28, upholding the ideal that a society should be judged on how it treats its most vulnerable members when they are in need of help (see “The Hollow Men,” page 14). If that’s the measure, Houston will be judged kindly. While we have little control over what happens in Washington or Arizona, we can control our own communities. We can look out for each other. We can lift each other up. Houston has set a final example. Let’s follow it. l Thadeus Greenson is the Journal’s news editor.

Dream to Desperation Editor: Thank you, Ms. Cahill and Mr. Greenson for your reminder (“#ThisIsAbsolutelyUs,” Aug., 17). Unfortunately, you are speaking to the choir. Those who need its illumination reside in a darkness never reached by the Enlightenment. There is hope, obviously as exemplified in the letters by George Clark, Ellen Taylor and Will Bell (Mailbox, Aug. 17). And of course, exemplars of freedom and justice have historically rung this bell: Witness Thomas Paine and the oft-maligned Thomas Jefferson. But equality for all is much muted in our schools and misunderstood in our society. Too many of our citizens seem to feel that equality for all means giving up something precious to others who don’t deserve it. The question becomes: How do we offset the pernicious resentment that makes some people so hateful? It is primarily because of fear that so many people feel threatened by the contrived menace of a truly equal social structure. The finger-pointing and scapegoating that characterizes a great deal of our social discourse is the product of fear and frustration. What we have is a society of scarcity that makes it increasingly harder for anyone to achieve any part of what was the American Dream. This dissolution has been insidious. In The Project for a New American Century, the neo-conservatives spelled out just how they would attack the American Dream: Destroy education, neuter unions and control voting, among other approaches. The attack on the American Dream has led to the proliferation of poverty and desperation. These in turn led to the election of a man totally unsuited for office in Donald Trump, and the ascendance of the anti-people policies of the Republicans. It may be that only a truly educated populace will provide our salvation. Larry Hourany, McKinleyville

Resisting Reparations

Rob Arkley’s attempts to thwart Indian Island’s return to the Wiyots By Linda Stansberry



wenty days before he went on KINS Radio’s “Talkshop” program and touched off a public firestorm by grumbling about the city of Eureka’s “giving away” Indian Island to the Wiyot Tribe, Robin P. Arkley II had some questions. An email dated July 11, sent from Arkley’s company Security National to Eureka City Manager Greg Sparks and obtained by the Journal through a California Public Records Act Request, is titled “RE: Legal Authority.” “It has come to my attention that the city of Eureka is transferring property, owned by the City, to the Wyott Tribe (sic),” Arkley begins. “The purpose of this letter is to request what legal authority the City has to give City owned property away, and what compensation the City may be receiving in return.” No details about compensation have been made public, as the city and the Wiyot tribe have signed a confidentiality agreement over negotiations for the transfer of the property in question: an island in Humboldt Bay, known before colonization as Duluwat or Tuluwat Island, which in recent years has been dubbed “Indian Island.” Arkley also refers to the property as “Gunther Island,” a name it bore for several decades. Robert Gunther, a dairy farmer, purchased the island on Feb. 23, 1860, three days before settlers slaughtered between 40 and 100 Wiyot women and children there. The city has been in negotiations with the tribe to return the island, the site of the tribe’s World Renewal Ceremony, for more than two years, and transferred a 40-acre portion of the island’s northeastern tip back to the tribe in 2004. As Sparks explains several times in subsequent emails, no details about that transfer have been finalized. The agenda item that raised Arkley’s ire was a July 18 memorandum of understanding, ultimately approved by the city council,

that reaffirmed the city’s commitment to making the transfer in the future. Sparks tells Arkley a draft agreement will be made available to him and other members of the public when it is completed. Arkley questions both the need for secrecy and the city’s authority in initiating the process. “It would seem to me that a[n] MOU with the wyiots (sic) is premature in any fair disposition process,” he writes, adding that he would like a copy of the council’s authorization. In subsequent emails leading up to the council meeting, he asks to meet with Sparks and the city attorney, saying the city was transferring resources without considering the rights of Eurekans, including the “the right to simply walk on the property at our whim.” If the city sets precedent for “giving away” public property, future “public assets could be declared surplus and given away at the whim of a renegade city council to any favored transferee de jour of the day.” “I am not picking a fight with anybody,” he writes. “There are considerations that are bigger than the history of Gunther Island.” Sparks reiterates that the MOU only reconfirms the process begun two years earlier and that the council received community input in support of the transfer when the process began. He suggests Arkley attend the meeting if he has concerns he’d like to address with the city council. Arkley also smacks Sparks for allegedly taking action without evaluating the legality of transferring the “surplus property.” “It ought to be evaluated from a legal, not emotional standpoint,” Arkley writes. “This is a thinly veiled gift to a favored group/nation at taxpayer expense.” Hinting at a future course of action, Arkley says he believes that property should be put to a bidding process, raising Continued on page 8 »

again the status of Native American tribes as sovereign nations. “This property ought to be in a public charity’s hands, who can administer it for public benefit, not for the benefit of a separate nation,” he writes. “I will do everything in my power to see that it is ‘suprlused’ into an entity that allows the public [to] continue to enjoy its use. I will see you at 8:30 tomorrow.” Details from that meeting (held the morning of the city council meeting) are unavailable, but the council unanimously voted to sign the MOU verifying “the city is still committed to making the transfer.” Several members of the Wiyot Tribe attended, with Chair Ted Hernandez saying the tribe’s intention was to restore the island’s natural resources and resume ceremonial use of the land. Public comment was brief and universally in favor of approving the MOU. “It’s the right thing to do, it’s a long time coming and I am personally in favor of making this happen,” said Councilmember Kim Bergel, recommending the council approve the MOU. It was shortly thereafter that Arkley went public with his frustration, telling KINS radio host Brian Papstein that his children enjoyed visiting Indian Island and the council was just “giving it away.” In the subsequent firestorm, he and his wife Cherie released a public statement to the Lost Coast Outpost, saying that while they would like to purchase the island, they do not want to own it. “Why can’t we come up with a solution to share the island?” the statement posits. Arkley did not respond to Journal requests for comment. On Aug. 3, Tim Callison, a representative of Arkley’s company, Security National, sent a formal letter to the city council, offering $500,000 for the western half of the island and offering to donate the property to a conservancy group to ensure the land “remains available for public access, including the Wiyot Tribe.” “It appears that there potentially may be several legal obstacles to such a transfer by the City,” the letter says, in bold. Subsequent emails question the formal appraisal ordered by the city, accusing the independent appraiser of having been coached and the whole process as being “under the table and results-oriented.” Sparks denies that accusation in his emailed response. Arkley, having read the appraisal, writes, “You have to be kidding me.” The island is far undervalued, he writes, and the appraisal itself is “sloppy,” based on information that is already 12 years old. (The Journal looked at the appraisal and found this to be inaccurate: The majority of property sales used for

comparison were done between 2009 and 2012.) “Greg, I would like to talk to your attorney and you as soon as practical,” Arkley writes. “I really don’t think that the council wants to put its reputation at risk with such a work product.” In his reply, Sparks says due diligence has been exercised and the public will have plenty of time to weigh in on the process once a draft agreement is reached, at which point the appraisal may be updated according to direction. “As for meeting with myself and the city attorney, I do not believe we are at a point where that will be useful,” Sparks writes. Sparks did not respond to the Journal’s request for comment, but the content and tenor of the email exchange seem to summarize what is at stake. The city, as represented by the city council, has reaffirmed its decision to return the island, even if a long and tangled legal process awaits. The details of how exactly that process will shake out, and the formal agreement that might come out of it, may not see sunshine for several years. In the meantime, Arkley is having none of it and appears to be trying every means to stymie the nascent attempt at reparations. “I think Mr. Arkley really should take a look at what he is asking for from a different perspective,” says Councilmember Austin Allison, responding to the Journal’s request for comment. “Indian island is important to the Wiyot Tribe on many fronts as it has been a ceremonial place of gathering for centuries, as well as a place of a very dark time in Eureka’s past. There is very little economical value to this piece of land and there is no malfeasance occurring in the transfer.” Arkley, however, seems to think he has legal grounds to stand on to block the returning of the island. “If this devolves into a fight, which I sincerely hope it does not, the city is grossly exposed,” he writes in an Aug. 16 email to Sparks and the council. “I prefer to follow a consensual and positive path that benefits and protects all the citizens of Eureka.” There is another option, suggested in an earlier email by Arkley: Put the sale to the Wiyot Tribe on the ballot in 2018. “That way the council will have a great issue to run on,” Arkley writes. “Something tells me that they/you are woefully out of touch with the citizens of Eureka.” l Linda Stansberry is a staff writer at the Journal.

‘Tipped Over the Edge’

Eureka’s apparent attempt to publicly shame Floyd Squires may backfire By Kimberly Wear


hen city officials released a salacious, unsubstantiated, third-hand allegation of impropriety against the city’s most notorious landlord, Eureka City Manager Greg Sparks says the action was meant to impart a message. “We thought that it just added some gravitas in terms of what we are dealing with when it comes to Mr. Squires and his properties, and just the constant heroin use in some properties and some of the other illegal activities, and just his lack of being a responsible landlord,” Sparks says. It’s no secret the city has been engaged in a bitter dispute with Floyd and Betty

Squires for decades over conditions at their properties, including a lawsuit currently in its sixth year that seeks to wrest control of them away from the couple. But now the city’s widely disseminated disclosure on Sept. 1 — which centers on the supposed motive for an arson last month at the Blue Heron Motel, allegedly an unfulfilled, goatish quid pro quo scenario between Floyd Squires and the woman suspected of the crime — could have other unintended legal ramifications. Along with the press release, the city sent out the full police report from the arson investigation. From the report, it appears the allegation is completely un-

substantiated, coming from a friend of the suspect, and police never approached the suspect nor Floyd Squires for their sides of the story. Nicholas Carroll, an expert witness in defamation cases who makes clear that he’s not determining legality, says the contents appear to be problematic on a few levels. Beyond the accusation, those include referring to the arson suspect Kattie Yocum as a “perpetrator” and “couching opinion as fact” in describing the Squireses’ track record. He says the city had plenty of room to bring up specific facts about the Squireses’ or even Yocum’s previous actions to make a case about the challenges it faces in pursuing building code violations at their properties. Instead, Carroll says, in his opinion, the city “tipped over the edge into defamation” and “harm of reputation.” Perhaps the most potentially actionable item is the reference to Yocum, whose preliminary hearing to determine whether there is even enough evidence for her to face trial was scheduled to take place Tuesday afternoon, as the Journal was going to print. “These are pretrial, reconviction statements,” Carroll says, noting you just can’t

say a person has been convicted until “the verdict is in.” Reached at his office Tuesday, Floyd Squires says he has not seen the release, then refers any questions to his attorney when he’s told about its contents, adding: “All I can say is it’s completely unfounded and I don’t even know a Kattie Yocum.” Sparks says the release’s strong language and the decision to include the detailed police report were vetted by City Attorney Cyndy Day-Wilson. “We just don’t believe enough is being done to correct the deficiencies and, in essence, want to keep up that legal pressure until these things are resolved,” he says during an interview on Friday. Asked about the potential liability for the city, Sparks replies, “I think the report speaks for itself. I guess he can deny that allegation.” He did not immediately respond to a Tuesday follow-up email with questions specifically about the reference to Yocum. The city manager says he has heard rumors of Squires allegedly intimidating his tenants over the years but he has no knowledge of a criminal investigation reContinued on next page » • Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017 • NORTH COAST JOURNAL

lated to the information that was released. After the release was sent out, the Eureka Police Department distanced itself from the disclosure, releasing a notice stating: “On behalf of Capt. [Brian] Stephens, the Eureka Police Department did not authorize the release of the arson investigation police report to the public. Any questions related to the report should be referred to the City Manager’s office.” As a general rule, the city of Eureka fights the public release of police reports. Stephens, who was acting chief while interim Chief Steve Watson was on vacation, declined to comment further. For his part, Mayor Frank Jager says he was out of town when the city’s statement went out and he had not yet talked with Sparks when the Journal reached him by phone Tuesday afternoon. “All I can say is I was a little surprised at the way things went down but I’m waiting to talk to the city manager and staff before I come to any conclusions,” the mayor says. Told that a defamation expert witness saw some red flags in the release, Jager responds that “there probably were,” but says he has learned over the years there are sometimes explanations behind decisions. “I wouldn’t want to comment until I find out how it happened and why,” he says. In the past, Squires has called the city’s court case against him an act of “retaliation” for a legal action he brought against Eureka and several officials, an action that was later dismissed. The Squireses’ attorney Bradford Floyd, who has repeatedly stated that the city is simply trying to run the couple out of town, was unusually sedate in his email response to the Journal. “I have nothing to say regarding this matter,” he writes. “We will address this through the judicial system rather than in the media.” Meanwhile, the Blue Heron was demolished last week along with another Squireses owned property at 815 H St. after both were declared public safety hazards. “There is a section of the municipal code that talks about immediate dangerous conditions and those are the provisions that were utilized to demo those buildings, because of threat posed to occupants, whether they were supposed to be there or not … and to first responders and the public,” Gerving says. The H Street property, an older home that had seen better days, had caught fire at least three times in recent memory, Gerving says. “During the most recent fire, there were people underneath the structure — it has a large crawl space — who didn’t want to come out and make themselves known, so they were hiding underneath while the

fire was burning and Humboldt Bay was working on it,” he says. Gerving says the receivership court case, in which 26 of the Squireses’ properties are being overseen, is basically in the same place it was last year, with the judge approving another round of repairs on properties that have previously been crossed off as completed. The case was slated for discussion in closed session during the council’s meeting that was taking place as the Journal was going to press. A round of new violations was found after the city served inspection warrants at 11 of those properties last month, issues the Squireses and their attorneys have said are tenant-caused due to the precarious nature of some of their rental clientele — often those with spotty histories and few funds. Gerving says he sees a different picture, one of a landlord who tends to spur into action when the legal heat is on to make repair deadlines in the court case, but otherwise allows issues to languish. “It’s still where it’s been,” he says. Moving forward, whether there will be any legal ramifications to the city’s press release is difficult to say. But, Carroll notes, if a case does find its way to civil court over claims of defamation, he’s pretty sure of one thing. “It’s going to be a messy, mudslinging trial,” he says. ● Kimberly Wear is a staff writer and assistant editor at the Journal.

Stepping off secrecy in Southern Humboldt, part 1 of 2 By Linda Stansberry

Dr. Deborah Anqersbach, ND.


rika Morlan made a hard decision. Fed up with the noise from the generators and fans, the odor of diesel exhaust, the rapidly disappearing meadow around her home, she did something that’s just not done in Honeydew: She blew the whistle on her neighbor’s grow. Morlan, who goes by the nickname “Squeaky,” has lived in the Mattole Valley since 2005, taking over the homestead near the river that her parents bought in the 1970s. While growing cannabis has been a decades-long industry in the region, previous growers were discreet, cultivating their product in the mountains, down gravel roads and behind locked gates. Scores of greenhouses have popped up on the ridges in the last decade but the valley floor, where settlers once grew wheat and apples, has remained largely untouched. That is, until the county’s medical marijuana ordinance passed, condoning legal cultivation on land zoned prime agriculture. That’s when Morlan, and others living on the banks of the Mattole River, saw the landscape rapidly change. “I’ve gone from an open field to a 30,000 square feet [grow],” Morlan says about her neighbor’s operation, acknowledging that she herself has a 1,900 square foot operation. “I’m not against weed, I’m against industrialization and against the destruction of the environment. That’s why I moved to the country and it followed me here.” On Aug. 3, Morlan sent a letter to county Planning Director John Ford and Supervisor Rex Bohn to express her “sorrow, frustration and anger at the way this so-called Green Rush is destroying Humboldt’s rural communities.” In the letter, she decries the spread of plastic hoop houses and industrial grows, the traffic, the dust and the noise from fans and smell of diesel exhaust. Morlan says one neighbor had threatened to wage “war” against her if she reported illegal activities. She received a response from Ford the next day but none from Bohn and, dissatisfied with this state of affairs, published a copy of the letter on popular Southern Humboldt newsblog Redheaded Blackbelt. Her words drew a total of 208 comments, ranging from the sympathetic (“Rural communities [are] being held hostage to the ravages of industrial users) to

1727 Central Ave, McKinleyville, CA (707) 840-0556

the dismissive (“Embrace the change” and “Suck it up”). Since going public, Morlan says she has been a “nervous wreck.” She’s received supportive emails and calls from community members, but continues to be concerned about her relationship with her neighbor, with whom she shares a water system. In a phone call to the Journal, Ford confirmed he had received and responded to Morlan’s letter, and the complaints about noise, smells and other issues had been referred to code enforcement. Bohn, in an email to the Journal, said it was inaccurate to say he hadn’t been responsive. He had referred the complaint to county planning, just as he delegates the dozens of emails from constituents he receives each day, emails about roads and water and, yes, the cannabis ordinance, the current incarnation of which the Board of Supervisors is responsible for approving and continuing to augment. As for Morlan’s accusation, alluded to in the Redheaded Blackbelt letter, that Bohn has a personal relationship that might sway his influence in the squabble, he denies this is a factor and Ford says he does not feel Bohn has a conflict of interest. All parties concerned, including Bohn’s son, have paperwork on file with the county. Following the publication of the letter, Bohn spoke with Morlan personally, as well as the neighbors. “Supervisor Bohn needs to be given a ton of credit for being solution-oriented,” says Ford, referring to Bohn’s visit to the farms in question. “That may be outside the bureaucratic process but it can be effective. There’s definitely a lack of people sitting down and talking with their neighbors to get things done; they throw it at the government instead.” Ford’s statement, obliquely, speaks to the tension at the heart of this story. Many rural parts of Humboldt County, and most aspects of the cannabis industry, have been, until very recently, lawless and unregulated. In that vacuum, neighbors helped neighbors, neighbors defended neighbors and, to be honest, sometimes neighbors screwed over neighbors. Nobody snitched, for better or worse.

can’t force neighbors to be nice to one another. As a once-secretive industry spills out of the woods and into plain sight and grows expand to keep profiting as the price per pound falls, there are going to be a lot of pissed off neighbors. Morlan says her neighbors are “not interested in working things out with [her]. They’re just interested in their bottom line.” Still, as challenging and cumbersome as it obviously is, a regulated industry is an industry with tools for citizen whistleblowers, and with incentives for growers to adhere to the law. Morlan’s complaint is certainly not the first or the last (code enforcement reports are kept confidential), but her willingness to upset the applecart in Honeydew certainly represents a new era. What remains to be seen is whether or not the rest of the community will embrace the same kind of transparency. l Next week: Erica Morlan’s neighbor makes a hard decision.

Crisis on the River


edway’s Mateel Community Center is in a state of crisis after its biggest annual fundraiser, Reggae on the River, not only failed to meet revenue projections but left the center with a “significant” debt. “Very challenging times lie ahead, there are difficult decisions to make, and the future of both ROTR and the MCC is at stake,” Mateel General Manager Justin Crellin wrote in a letter to to the Southern Humboldt community, inviting it to a Sept. 19 meeting when he will share further detail of the Mateel’s financial state and what options are being considered. In an email to the Journal, Crellin said it didn’t become clear that ROTR was in trouble until during and after the three-day music festival on the Eel River near Richardson Grove in early August. He said early ticket sales outpaced those of the year before but that last-minute sales, walk-up sales and single-day tickets all lagged way behind. The lower attendance also negatively impacted merchandise sales and other income streams at the 33-year-old festival, Crellin said. He added that organizers had worked to reduce spending on this year’s festival and operations came in well below budget, just not nearly enough to make up for the diminished attendance. In addition to putting on the annual festival, the Mateel is a fixture in the Southern Humboldt community, offering a free hot lunch program, youth arts and music programs, among other things. Crellin said staff has already been cut back to “essential hours,” with some layoffs having already occurred. “Presently we are looking to maintain our programs and events that are currently confirmed through the end of Decem-

ber but we will be holding off on adding things beyond this until a clearer path forward emerges — one that resolves our outstanding debt and more solidly enables us to commit to 2018 operations/planning,” he said, adding that various options are currently being explored, including “some rather encouraging ones.” In the community letter, Crellin says Sept. 19 is also a chance to really discuss how the center can grow and adapt to meet the needs of a changing community. In his email to the Journal, he expanded on that point. “I think in simple terms we are starting to see the effects the changing cannabis economy is having on our community and I know from speaking to other local business owners in town that many of their numbers are down too, underscoring that folks simply don’t have the money in their pockets they once did,” Crellin said. “I’m also not sure the influx of newer local residents feels the same connection to our larger community, back-to-the-land type values, and the importance of supporting community institutions like Mateel or ROTR quite yet and this is something that needs to be fostered so that we are sure to be able to keep these institutions viable and relevant in the future as our community evolves [and] its values, needs and desires change.” Crellin declined to divulge hard financial numbers at this point, saying he’d prefer to share them with the community Sept. 19. He said he hopes folks will come to the meeting with an open mind, suggestions and willingness to do what they can to help the Mateel find a sustainable course forward. —Thadeus Greenson

‘The Hollow Men’

The life and death of Daren Borges

By Thadeus Greenson


efore the arrest and the sobering cell, long before the civil rights lawsuit or the $2.5 million verdict, there was a call for help. It was shortly after 2 p.m. on June 13, 2014, and 42-year-old Daren Borges was in a bad way. Near the intersection of Seventh and D streets in Eureka, just down from Best Dry Cleaners, Borges was behaving erratically, taking off his clothes and jabbering incoherently. He appeared to be throwing himself on the ground. Seeing all this, someone picked up the phone and called 911, saying someone needed to come and check on him. He needed help. Dispatch sent a police officer. Within two hours, Daren Ethan Borges — the artist, the poet, the brother, the son, the ex-convict, the drug user, the homeless schizophrenic, the optimist — was lying dead in a sobering cell at the county jail. Exactly what happened and why Borges died that day three years ago would be parsed and dissected, interpreted and argued. On Aug. 28, a federal jury found that jail staff had been negligent in failing to have a nurse or doctor evaluate Borges before putting him in that sobering cell, denying the man the rights guaranteed him under the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, depriving him of life, liberty and property without due process. The jury awarded Borges’ mother $2.5 million. In the aftermath of the verdict, Nancy Delaney — an attorney representing the county — has already filed a motion challenging the verdict and says she plans to file another. U.S. District Court Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers, who heard the case, has already warned Delaney that evidence in the case was “pretty substantial”

and her motions will likely fail. But if they do, it seems likely the county will appeal. Sheriff William Honsal, who took over the post earlier this year from now-retired Mike Downey, who was named in the lawsuit but cleared of wrongdoing, has meanwhile said jail staff feel like they did everything possible for Borges. But a jury felt otherwise. And, quietly, the sheriff ’s office has already changed its policy to ensure the next time someone is arrested for public intoxication after a welfare check, they are treated differently than Daren Borges was.

Born Feb. 9, 1972,

the son of an educator and a medical researcher in Orange County, Daren Borges never seems to have had it easy. Borges was born very hard of hearing, the result of a pregnancy that went past term, according to his mother, Stephany Borges. He had to wear hearing aids and was slow to develop speech, which landed him in special education classes. “He always wanted to be normal just like everybody else,” his mom says, adding that he was a sweet kid. The family traveled a lot and Stephany Borges recalls one trip to Bogota, Columbia, when Daren was about 10 and he saw a homeless person for the first time. “We saw this woman outside who had fallen down and was lying in the street,” she recalls. “Security came and roughly threw her in the park. At Daren’s insistence, we found a place for her to stay in the church, then brought her food every day.” A few years later, she recalls a trip to Europe, where she took Daren to see the Museum of Modern Art in Amsterdam and he became enraptured by the modernist

abstracts. “He said, ‘This is art? Can this be art? People pay money for this? But, mom, I can do it.’” So Daren Borges started painting and drawing, and art became a lifelong passion. Mainstreamed back into traditional classrooms in fourth grade, he also came around and started doing well in school, Stephany Borges says, though he always felt different, like his hearing aids made him stand out. When Daren was 12, his parents welcomed a daughter, Sofia, into the family. “He completely adored her,” Stephany Borges says. But new challenges would soon emerge as Daren Borges entered adulthood and schizophrenia began to take hold, blurring the relationship between his thoughts, emotions and actions, leading to faulty perceptions, inappropriate behaviors, delusions and a sense of mental fragmentation. Stephany Borges says she started seeing symptoms when her son was 18 but she thought he was just acting out, as teens do. “I think at 19, he had a psychotic break but it looked like crazy behavior,” she says. “He got on a train and went to Indiana one day with nothing. Another day, he stole some stuff from a convenience store. They just keep doing weird stuff and it gets harder and harder to get them out of it. It was a terrible time. He just did impulsive things that got him into trouble.” For Sofia Borges, some of her earliest memories are during this time period. “I just wanted him to be safe, wanted him to be OK,” she says. “When he was doing well, it was so fun. We’d hang out and listen to music but I didn’t understand what was happening. It was a very tumultuous time.”

Borges’ family is largely unwilling to talk publicly about the depth of his problems and run-ins with the law. But what’s clear is that Daren Borges had many. (One filing in the lawsuit references his 12-page rap sheet, much of it for public intoxication and possession cases). And it’s clear that Sofia and Stephany Borges feel that each arrest and incarceration left him with more damage and more trauma. “Over time, the system really failed him, failed my family,” Sofia Borges says. Stephany Borges recalls a time, after a minor transgression, when she worked hard to help get her son a work placement with the California Conservation Corps in lieu of incarceration. In short order, he wandered off and his legal troubles worsened. Through it all, she chuckles, Daren Borges kept a sense of humor, resolute that all this worrying and hand-wringing over him was silly. “When he was going through the beginning of his crazy behavior, he knew I was worrying about him so, one day, he came downstairs dressed in two different shoes, his shirt inside out and different socks,” she says. “He could see me thinking. He knew what other people were thinking and he was always kind of laughing.” She pauses. “He had the most beautiful laugh. It’s a crazy laugh, but a beautiful laugh.”

As he got older, into his 20s and

beyond, Daren Borges resisted his family’s efforts to help him. He moved away from Southern California to Eureka, where his grandmother and aunt lived, and Stephany Borges says there came a point when she had to step back, had to make a choice

between pushing her son toward treatment and having a relationship with him. “He didn’t want anyone to tell him, to force him to do things,” she says. “He wanted his independence, no matter what that looked like. At that point, he felt like people were going to take things away from him. … I never wanted him to go missing.” In 1998, Stephany Borges also moved north to take a job teaching in Humboldt State University’s new women’s studies department. She says she always kept in touch with her son. Local philanthropist Betty Chinn, who’s spent three decades feeding and caring for Eureka’s homeless, says she came to know Daren Borges when he moved to Eureka. “He was out there for a really long time — young age,” she says. Chinn says she would sometimes see him doing OK, others he would be passed out on the street. She says Stephany Borges called her a handful of times seeing if there was something Chinn could do to help her son, if there was something Stephany was missing. “The mom tried,” Chinn says. “She really tried.” After one of these calls, Chinn says she approached Daren. “I asked about his mom. He said she had done everything she could for him already,” Chinn recalls. “He was a good man. Deep inside, he had goodness, but the mental illness and the drugs knocked him down.” One Eureka police officer who had frequent contacts with Daren Borges says it was obvious there was an underlying mental illness at play. “It was always clear mine wasn’t the only voice he was hearing,” the officer says. Sofia Borges marvels at how her brother kept drawing and kept writing, kept learning and kept sharing. “He loved corresponding and communicating, so he wrote letters. I should have written more,” she says, adding that her brother would write about what he was eating, what he was thinking about, dreaming about, seeing, just “stream of consciousness.” He’d send comic strips cut out from the newspaper, a favorite poem (often by T.S. Elliot) he’d transcribed or one he’d written, all on what he could find — discarded envelopes and fliers, scraps of binder paper, whatever he had. “He always found the light,” Sofia Borges says of her brother, recalling one time when she received a beautiful drawing on the back of a Humboldt County jail inmate request form. “He was hungry. He was always starving. He loved cookies, hamburgers, Dr. Pepper, Red Vines. He had this insatiable appetite. He loved to relate to people. He loved Continued on next page » • Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017 • NORTH COAST JOURNAL

his coffee. He loved his thesaurus. He just cared. He was loyal and not just toward me but toward everyone. He was this eternal optimist. If he had money, he gave it away. If he had an idea, he shared it. If he cared about you, he said so.” Daren Borges sent his mom a last letter on June 6, 2014. In it, he tells her he loves her three times, expresses his excitement about getting out of jail on June 10 and his hope to never again be incarcerated.

About to leave jail for the first time in two months after a probation violation, he promises Stephany Borges he’ll get her a present for her birthday — June 12 — and warns it will be late. But he promises to call. He tried but didn’t catch her. When some passersby found his phone the next day on the ground near Seventh and D streets in Eureka., it had just one phone number programed into it, under the name “mom.”

Watching the last hours of

Daren Borges’ life unfold on law enforcement cameras is a horrifying look at a life deteriorating under the weight of mental illness and drug intoxication. The first video was captured by a camera mounted in the back seat of then Eureka police officer Michael Stelzig’s patrol car. An officer places Borges, still handcuffed, into the patrol car’s rear driv-

er’s seat. Clad in blue jeans with his brown hair cropped short to show his receding hair line and tattoos peaking out from his gray/blue t-shirt, Borges sits for almost 20 seconds, his eyes trained in front of him, his brow furrowed. He’s breathing heavily. “Two packs, three packs,” he says in almost a singing voice before bumping his knee into the divider in front of him and turning his head sharply to the left. “What’d I say? Indecent exposure? Come on. Indecent exposure, what?” Over the next 14 minutes, as Stelzig drives to the jail, parks and leaves him in the patrol car for several minutes as he readies paperwork, Daren Borges appears to deteriorate. His eyes bulge as he mutters unintelligibly, veins visible on his sweaty forehead and neck. He sways from side to side and scrunches his face up intermittently. He makes kissing sounds and talks to himself. It’s hard to make out but he talks or mutters almost constantly, seemingly independent of the officer driving him or the chirping police radio. About seven minutes into the video, you hear Stelzig’s voice as he calls over to the jail. “I’ve got a male that’s not combative but he’s quite amped up … like amped up, methed out,” Stelzig says. “Oh, OK. I’ll let them know,” a voice responds. “Daren, you going to play nice?” Stelzig asks Borges a moment later. He continues to mutter unintelligibly, leaning forward to wipe sweat from his forehead onto the knee of his jeans as the patrol car pulls into the parking bay under the jail. Stelzig then leaves Borges alone in the car for about five minutes as he prepares for booking. Borges sweats profusely in the back of the car, even though its windows are down, as he talks constantly and incoherently, saying women’s names, swearing, muttering to himself. At one point, he leans forward and kisses his knee, then scrunches his face and makes a spitting sound, as though he tasted something bitter and is trying to get it off his tongue. At times he looks in pain, at others he laughs. He begins to sweat through his t-shirt. He moans. He grimaces. Then the car door opens. “Daren, what the fuck’s going on, what’d you do, fall off the wagon?” a male officer asks. “Yeah,” Borges replies. The officer gets him out the car, watches as he walks across the underground parking area and sits him in a plastic chair outside booking, waiting for another suspect to clear the process. Borges waits in that plastic chair for about 10 minutes, his body mostly still but his head in near constant motion,

until the booking room is cleared and Stelzig gets him on his feet. When he enters the booking room — a rectangular cinder block room with built-in desks on three walls — Borges walks directly to a rectangular blue pad that hangs on the room’s west wall. This is where correctional officers pat-down suspects. Borges walks to the pad and leans into it head first at an awkward angle. He lists left, then right. There’s no sound in the jail videos, so it’s hard to tell if he and Stelzig are talking, but it’s clear the officer redirects him to the mat at least a couple of times, as Borges lists and staggers away. It takes a few minutes for the correctional officers to enter, Terri Bittner first then David Swim. Under the sheriff’s office’s protocol at the time, the officers are supposed answer 35 questions as a part of the booking process, 24 asked to the suspect; the others based on officers’ observations — physical signs of trauma, the appearance of intoxication, whether he or she seems oriented to self, date, time and place. Under the policy, if correctional officers are concerned about the physical state of a suspect, they’re required to call a registered nurse down from the jail’s medical unit to evaluate him or her. It’s then up to the nurse to decide whether the suspect is to be booked into the facility or sent to a hospital for further evaluation. From the video, it’s impossible to know what’s said between the officers and Borges, but they are in the room for about a minute when they begin patting him down. Eventually, another officer — Tim Hammer — enters and, with Bittner, helps hold Borges upright as Swim takes off his shoes and socks. Then, they escort him from the booking area to a sobering cell. The entire

booking process spans about two minutes and 40 seconds, from the time Bittner enters the room to when the three officers escort Borges out. Current Humboldt County Sheriff William Honsal says there’s nothing codifying that the jail’s questions have to be administered before the pat-down begins. In fact, the questions and dialogue can de-escalate the tensions of the hands-on process. If that’s what happened with Borges, there doesn’t seem have been much dialogue. And none of the officers can be seen taking any notes. The three officers escort Borges down the hall and into a sobering cell — a small rectangular room with nothing but a metal toilet and sink, a drain in the center of the floor and three small windows looking out on the hallway. Once in the cell, the officers appear to push Borges to his knees, and then struggle for about a minute to get his handcuffs off. Then, all three quickly exit and return down the hall. Swim fills out Borges’ booking questionnaire, indicating that he doesn’t seem “oriented to self, date, time and place” and that he appears under the influence of an unknown substance. He indicates Borges was placed in a sobering cell, with medical called to come see him there. He answers no to all other questions, including the 24 that policy dictates be asked of suspects. Alone in the cell, Borges stays on the ground a moment, flailing his legs and rolling over to the small window in the door. He appears as though he may be trying to get someone’s attention for a moment before splaying onto his back, pulling up his shirt and crawling over to the toilet, which he uses to splash water on his face and head. He takes off his pants and dips them into the toilet bowl. He then does the same with his shirt. An officer comes to his cell to place an observation sheet near its door, which officers will use to note Borges’ condition every 15 minutes. The officer doesn’t appear to look into the cell. Back inside, Borges is now completely naked and using the sink to splash water over his face and head. He passes frantically along the walls of the small cell,

smacking himself in the head, kicking his clothes along the floor. He’s in constant motion. He falls to the floor and writhes, climbs to his knees and throws his clothes in the air. He lies in the fetal position for a moment only to sit back up, grab his pants and tear at them before throwing them against the wall. He crawls in circles. He spins and flails, sliding on the now wet floor. He smacks himself, smacks the walls, and keeps returning to the sink and toilet to splash water on himself. When an officer comes to check on him after about 15 minutes, Borges is naked on his back, his wet pants on top of him, his legs flailing. The officer watches for a moment, marks “moving” on the sheet and returns to the front desk. Borges’ behavior continues. About 20 minutes after he’s put in the cell, a nurse comes and looks through the window. She observes for about two minutes and 15 seconds as Borges swings his pants at the floor, as if swatting invisible flies, ventures back to the toilet, appears to mount a small privacy partition and then flails on the ground near the cell door. The nurse appears to take some notes then leaves. Borges scoots around the cell on his back. When an officer comes to observe him about eight minutes later, he’s still is on his back, swinging his legs in the air and using them to throw his clothing around the cell. After the officer leaves, Borges rises to his feet and leans heavily on the partition as he makes his way back around to the toilet. He never makes it back to his feet. Instead, he crawls, wriggles and writhes his way around the cell until he ends up on his side, his back to the far wall opposite the toilet. His legs churn for a minute then go still, his left leg jutted out straight, his right cocked behind it at an awkward angle. Some minutes later, an officer would note he was on his side, breathing. When an officer returned 12 minutes later, Borges lay in the same position. Another check 14 minutes later found him the same. When an officer returned 15 minutes later, something caught his attention. He asked for backup and entered the cell. It was too late. Daren Borges was dead.

Daren Borges was officially

pronounced dead at 4:34 p.m. at St. Joseph Hospital on that Friday. For reasons still unclear, his mother wasn’t notified until the following Monday.

son died. But she kept looking for answers and not finding them. Stories changed, she says, and little things began to add up. “This sounds really small, but they wouldn’t give me back his clothes,” she says. “They said they were holding them for investigative purposes.” Ultimately, Stephany Borges enlisted the help of Southern California attorneys Dale Galipo and John Fattahi, who filed a lawsuit charging that Daren Borges’ civil rights were violated by a host of officers with the Eureka Police Department and the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, as well as California Forensic Medical Group, Inc., the company that provides medical services at the jail on a contract basis. But U.S. District Court Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers dismissed the case against Eureka and its officers, and Galipo said California Forensic Medical Group agreed to settle its portion of the case for $250,000. The county, Galipo said, never made a settlement offer. That left the county, former Sheriff Mike Downey and four correctional officers — Swim, Bittner and Hammer, as well as their supervisor, Tim Hershberger — as the only defendants in the suit when it went to trial Aug. 21. At trial, Galipo argued that the correctional officers, whom he said the county had failed to adequately train, didn’t follow policy and acted negligently when they rushed Borges through the booking process — despite his being disoriented, incoherent and obviously intoxicated — and placed him in a sobering cell instead of summoning a registered nurse to medically screen him. Any reasonable officer acting in these officers’ place would have seen Borges was suffering a medical emergency and gotten him to a hospital, Galipo said, adding that doing so would have likely saved Borges’ life. Representing the county, Nancy Delaney countered that the correctional officers did everything they could and

that Borges appeared to be aware of his surroundings and coherent when he was booked. And she pointed to the nurse who checked on him through his cell window within 20 minutes of his being booked and saw no reason for alarm. Sure, Borges was amped up and flailing around, but that’s typical of methamphetamine users booked into the jail, Delaney said, adding that it’s also customary for them to fall into a deep sleep after a time. Borges’ death was “tragic and sad,” she said, but unpreventable after he ingested a potentially lethal dose of methamphetamine. In their closing arguments, both Delaney and Galipo pointed to Stelzig, who testified at trial that it appeared to him that Borges was deteriorating, that he was incoherent and couldn’t answer simple questions during the booking process. Delaney argued that the former officer’s testimony simply wasn’t credible. The jury apparently disagreed, finding that Hamer, Swim and Bittner acted negligently and without proper training when they failed to have Borges medically screened before admitting him to the jail, and that the county had failed to adequately train its officers. (The jury cleared Downey of a charge that he was responsible for disregarding a known training deficiency and allegations that the officers involved acted with malice.) The jury awarded Stephany Borges $2.5 million in damages. After the trial, Galipo credited the jury for taking the case seriously and valuing the life of a man who was clearly lost and in distress — addicted, mentally ill and homeless at the time of his death. The trial, he said, is about the fact that every one of us has basic constitutional rights, and if the jail is going to incarcerate one of us, it better ensure those rights are protected. “I think it was the right verdict,” he said. “I think it was a courageous verdict.”

A week following the verdict,

Honsal is leading the Journal on a tour of the booking area of the Humboldt County jail. A lot has changed since Borges died here, he says, though he disputes there was a direct correlation between the man’s death and the policy changes. Instead, he points to a lawsuit brought a couple of years ago against Monterey County a couple of years ago, which also contracts with California Forensic Medical Group, alleging the jail failed to adequately screen arrestees or give them proper medical care once they were booked. Back in December, Honsal says the jail changed its policy to require that a registered nurse screen every single person booked into custody. In the process, nurses take every suspect’s blood pressure, pulse and temperature, and fill out a four-page questionnaire that resembles a hospital intake form. The new policy — which was fully implemented in February, when additional nurses were hired — has slowed down the booking process and demands more of local officers, taking more time away from their normal beats and patrols. It also results in more suspects being denied admission and being sent to St. Joseph Hospital for further evaluation, which can frustrate officers and hospital staff alike. “Everyone wants us to help with the meth problem — the so-called ‘zombies’ walking the street — but this is the only place for them,” Honsal says, clearly a bit frustrated, adding that it’s incumbent on the sheriff’s office to make sure the jail is a safe place for these people to be. “This lawsuit proves that’s the standard people want and expect us to adhere to.” On the phone last week from her home in Arizona, Stephany Borges seems stunned silent for a moment when told of the jail’s new screening policies. “I can’t believe that,” she says. “That would have saved Daren’s life. That’s good

news. That’s brilliant.” In an email last week, Sofia Borges wrote that the trial took a heavy toll. “I never expected or wanted to grieve publicly,” she wrote. “I never wanted Daren, me and my family picked apart by Internet trolls. I never wanted to hear how much his heart weighs and listen to strangers speculate about whether or not his life had value. This is the price of asking for reform.” Stephany Borges feels much the same. She also wonders how her son’s life might have changed, saying that for some people, schizophrenia loosens its hold in later adulthood. “The thing I’m most sad about is that for so many years, I thought my job was to change him and fix it, and I wish I had just been able to do be with him and love him,” she says. Sofia Borges also has regrets. When she smells the rocky road cookies baking at a shop around the corner from her house, she regrets that she’ll never get to take her brother there. She wishes she’d written more letters, that she’d stayed closer instead of working abroad in Berlin for a few years, moving back stateside only to get a phone call notifying her of his death a week later. “It really puts into perspective that sometimes you don’t get a next time or another chance or a future with someone — that’s what I have to live with,” she says. After a long pause, Sofia Borges shares one of her favorite memories of her brother. It was his 20th birthday, which would have made her about 8 at the time. The family had a pizza party for him — nothing big, just the four of them.

Figgin’ Delicious

Fresh fig bar cookies (that are secretly gluten free) By Jada Calypso Brotman


y dad says he doesn’t like figs and it makes me want to club him over the head. How can you not love figs? Rich, heady, creamy flavor, absolutely bursting with sweet, summery juices, their smooth shape making them a joy to eat out of hand, figs are the luxurious summer eating experience. I look forward to them all winter. There is a big beautiful fig tree in my neighborhood that positively throws figs at me when I’m walking past, and there is a brief mind-boggling period when I have far more figs than I can eat. There are, of course, a zillion things to do with figs — grilled and served with ice cream, baked in tarts, in a fruit salad, served with cheese, made into a savory sauce to have with lamb or chicken, made into a quick sauce to have with waffles, dried, canned, simply cooked with sugar syrup and cardamom; the list is very long. Jam. Cake. Stuffed with chevre. Slivered in chicken salad. In my version of heaven, there will be lots of ripe figs and I won’t have to wash any of the canning pots. I even buy them at the store once my tree has expended its glory, which I do with some gnashing of teeth because they aren’t cheap, but by this point in the summer I’m addicted and I can’t really face another day unless I am fortified with figs. Soon I will have to go through fig withdrawal because the season is short but we still have a few weeks of figgy bounty. On a recent lazy, figgy afternoon, I was whiling away the hours with my sisterin-law Claire and her mom Maria, and we were musing about ways to use the small mountain of figs they had harvested from the tree. It’s advisable for tummy reasons to not actually eat as many fresh figs as you’d like, so we were thinking of ways that one may cook them. Maybe it was having a mama in the room, because the

Fig Newtons of our remembered lunch boxes sprang to mind for us all. Remember Newtons? “It’s not a cookie, it’s fruit and cake”? My mouth is watering just thinking about them. Clare and Maria avoid gluten, so they haven’t had Newton’s in a donkey’s age (I, of course, with my ravenous sweet tooth sometimes snarf a box in January, usually with a glass of milk and a Star Trek episode). But they have discovered Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free, which apparently acts as advertised and works well as a wheat flour substitute. Clare did some Internet research and merged together a few recipes. Her first batch was a winner, not precisely like the Newton but tasting quite literally of fruit and cake, with a lovely rich bar crust and a toothsome, sweet fig filling. She made another batch and, after twiddling a bit with the baking times, I am proud to present these as really, really good fig bars. I love gluten but didn’t miss it; I am sure this recipe will work as well with normal flour. Meanwhile, it’s good to have some solid gluten-free dessert recipes in one’s repertoire, seeing as this gluten free thing (apologies to celiacs-ers) doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. The bars get better with age so they are great made on a Sunday for weeklong snacks, or you could serve them warm with whipped cream or ice cream for a more upscale dessert. I think that the cardamom ice cream sometimes available at the Co-op or more occasionally at Scoop would really be a knockout. As I said, it’s not quite like a Newton because the crust is considerably richer, but the overall effect is chewy and figgy and will really scratch that Newton itch. Go ahead and make a batch some afternoon — it’s a wonderful seasonal specialty and your gluten-free friends will like you even more.

You won’t give a flying fig there’s no wheat flour in these. Photo by Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

Fresh Fig Bars For the filling: 3 cups of fresh figs 1 pinch of salt 1 squeeze of lemon Smash the figs with a wooden spoon or by hand. In a large saucepan, cook them down for 1 hour, stirring frequently. Add the pinch of salt and squirt of lemon juice. Remove the mixture from heat and let it cool enough to chill in the refrigerator. For the crust: 1¾ cup gluten-free flour mix (Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free works well) ½ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon baking soda ⅛ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg 1 stick butter ½ cup white sugar ½ cup packed brown sugar

½ tablespoon vanilla extract 1 large egg, beaten Mix the flour mix, baking soda, salt and nutmeg in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, blend the butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract and beaten egg. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and form the dough into a ball. Cover it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour. Grease a 12-by-8-inch baking pan with butter and heat the oven to 375 F. When dough is chilled, divide it in half. Using a rolling pin, roll each half roughly into the size and shape of your pan. Place one layer of dough in the bottom of the pan and spread the fig filling evenly. Carefully set the other layer of dough on top of the filling. Bake at for 40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and cut into bars. Let cool completely or serve them warm. ●

Art Beat

Seven Plus Plus Pop ups for summer’s end By Gabrielle Gopinath


went to Arcata’s Creamery District on foot before the heat wave broke to lay eyes on the new work of public installation art I’d heard about. It turned out to be easy enough to find. On L Street between Eighth and Ninth streets, you could see from far off that the chain link fence separating a strip of battered yellow grass from the beginnings of the new bike trail had sprouted whimsical antennae. Bundled clusters of pom-pom tipped wands reach higher than pedestrians’ heads, arching above the sidewalk and nodding like mutant sunflowers. The garishly patterned array loomed partially obscured through yellowish haze from wildfires raging to the east. The hot air smelled like campfires but felt scratchy like burlap on the nose. Standing beside the installation by Arcata textile artist Malia Penhall (whose work can also be found under the name Malia Matsumoto), it became apparent that every surface has been knit by hand. Shapes in this piece are many-tentacled but surfaces are cuddly. Clustered wands with their coronate flagella recall sea anemones, if sea anemones had been painstakingly knit together from a sequence of cozies. Nubbly wool surfaces with cheerful horizontal stripes and pompoms nudge beholders to remember the approach of fall. The artwork injects an upwelling of fancy into its surroundings, which feels like luxury, especially now. Someone had left a tiny box of Zig-Zag rolling papers to repose at the base of one of the knit tentacles, like an offering. A second Penhall artwork titled “Cozie Knit Wit Forest,” located within a cluster of trees on the corner of N and Eighth streets, features 10 knitted “tree cozies” and more pompoms. Penhall’s installation

popped up last month but remains on public display, at least until natural decay or scheduled intervention removes it from view. A second pop-up event is scheduled to last one day only when the Eureka-based women’s art collective Seven Plus exhibits at Lori Goodman’s converted barn studio space later this month. The exhibition, titled Seven Plus Pops Up, includes works by Amy Uyeki, Lori Goodman, Kathleen Zeppegno, Claire Iris Schencke, Lorraine Miller-Wolf, Tina Rousselot, Nancy Head, Marie Kelleher-Roy, Joan Gold, Patricia Sennott and Barbara Dolan-Wilkinson. Members of Seven Plus have been meeting at intervals to share ideas about studio practice since 2000. They’ve exhibited together throughout this period, with previous shows at the Ink People Center For the Arts, the Morris Graves Museum of Art and the Upstairs Gallery at Arcata’s Umpqua Bank. Painter and animator Amy Uyeki plans to show still images from her animation film in-progress, From Somewhere, at this month’s exhibition. The 15-minute short features pastel images drawn on board, digitally animated to the accompaniment of an original musical score by San Francisco composer/musician Holly Mead. The

plot, Uyeki said, is about five characters whose lives intertwine. Also at Seven Plus Pops Up, the painter Claire Iris Schencke will show digital illustrations created improvisationally using an iPad and a calligraphy app, some of which are currently on display in Schencke’s show at Black Faun Gallery. Schencke writes in a statement that the works on display constitute an homage to calligraphy teacher Pearl Huang. “As a southpaw I failed calligraphy in art school. But when I got to do it with a broom dipped in a bucket of ink while dancing, I loved it. Pearl Huang, who teaches calligraphy through healing movement, gave a workshop in Eureka two years ago,” the statement reads. An early adopter of the iPad and its digital painting options, Schencke made a pilgrimage to Taos, where she swapped Huang lessons in the new tech for calligraphic movement instruction. Schencke continues, “I took her teachings with me on my daily walks at the beach. I drew the character for water — the only one I knew — over and over in the sand at the water’s edge and saw it washed away.” Then she created elemental characters, such as those for water and snow, using the Zen Brush app.

The Latin tag ars longa, vita brevis (art is long; life is short) summarizes the expectations of permanence past generations of artists brought to their materials, few of which encumber us today. Changes wrought by outsourcing, downsizing and the decline of the middle class have eroded expectations of permanence, while digital media has recalibrated our collective attention span. Pop-up projects make sense for us now, as these shows illustrate. With traditional exhibition spaces less feasible for private individuals to operate and the borderlines between creation and curation increasingly diffuse, expect to see more exhibitions of this ilk in future. Catch them while you can. l The art installations by Malia Penhall on L Street and on the corner of N and Eighth streets, in Arcata’s Creamery District, are open to the public. The Seven Plus Pops Up exhibit featuring all the members of the Seven Plus Collective will be held at the Humboldt Hill studio/ barn of Lori Goodman on Sunday, Sept. 24, from 1 to 5 p.m. Contact Patricia Sennott at for details. • Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017 • NORTH COAST JOURNAL

Hit the Lawn By Andy Powell

Thursday Cruzin’ Eureka’s Poker Run meets up this evening at Vista Del Mar in Eureka at 6 p.m. and there’s local music to welcome the cruisers. You’ll find well-dialed bluesrock band Cold Blue Water in the parking lot, jamming away along with Ghost Train in front of some pretty fine looking classic cars. Check it out — the music and the view are free. At the same time in Blue Lake, you’ll find some folky fiddle tunes courtesy of Fingal, who are doing the free gig thing for you so let ’em know you appreciate it. Ian of the Alibi informs me that some local outlaw country is on the bill tonight from Blue Lakers Barn Fire, who are welcoming Portland punkers P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. (notice the periods between each letter) to the ’bi with music starting around 11 p.m. and for only $5.

Friday Arts! Arcata is in full swing tonight starting around 6 p.m. so you’ll be able to check out plenty of fine local musicians hawkin’ their sonic wares. Over at Wrangletown Cider Co. — remember the old recycling center? — you’ll get your first dose of local electric Americana band Rogues’ Gallery around then. At 6 p.m., the Mad River Brewery Tap Room welcomes Frogbite, who I’m told play “Amphibian Rock,” so that’s not something you’ll want to miss. It’s a free show, as is the one happening at the Logger Bar just three hours later with out-of-towners Gun Hill Royals, who hail from the City of Angels and are West Coast country rockers playing “rug cutters and barn burners” with country waltzes thrown in for good measure. Band member Kyle seemed like a good guy via email and is excited to play up in the Lake o’ Blue. Give the guys a warm Humboldt County welcome at this free show. I still haven’t had the chance to see Portland’s Roselit Bone but I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews regarding this “apocalyptic cowboy” band so take that for what it’s worth. The band is joined by local country band Mojave Green at Siren’s Song Tavern at 9 p.m. No word if this is a free show but you’ll get your money’s worth even if you have to cough up a few shekels. Local Pink Floyd tribute Money (including yours truly) returns to the Wave Lounge at the Blue Lake Casino at 9 p.m.

for a free show to celebrate keyboardist Tomek’s birthday. He loves whipped cream vodka, so buy him a shot. If you missed Rogues’ Gallery earlier this evening, catch ’em opening for the No Good Redwood Ramblers tonight at 9:30 p.m. at Humboldt Brews, where I’m hearing the Ramblers will be joined by local fiddler Evan Morden at this bargain of a $5 show.


If you’re familiar with Lawnstock, you’ll know it’s an annual music festival put on by the Zwerdling family to benefit a local child with medical needs. This year the festival is helping Kiarra Plante, who has type III hereditary angioedema, and making its public debut at Perigot Park in Blue Lake at 11 a.m. with the following performers: Ghost Train, Dynasty One, The Detours, The Yokels, That Buckin’ String Band, Rachel Beccaria and Nashville native Amanda Fields, though in what order I’m not sure. A $10 bill will get you into this festival with proceeds, of course, going to a great cause. Make sure to thank the Zwerdlings for putting this festival on each year. With live music starting at 1 p.m., the Blocksburg Harvest Faire gets underway at Blocksburg Town Hall with above-mentioned Gun Hill Royals along with The Knights of the Van Duzen, Austin Alley and The Ringo Family Band. It’s a free festival, so live it up. The Detours return to the Mad River Brewery Tap Room at 6 p.m. for a free show. Then at 9 p.m. at the Mateel, reggae star Anthony B makes an appearance with support from Altar Tones. An even $30 will get you in for this hot shot in Redway. If Grateful Dead tunes are more up your alley, check out Play Dead at Humboldt Brews at 10 p.m. and for $10.

Monday New York jazz is on tap at the Palm Lounge in Eureka at 7 p.m., courtesy of locals Brian Post & Friends. Looks like it’s a free one tonight and, if so, don’t be afraid to tip the band. These are musicians who’ve honed their chops so thank your lucky stars they love playing out locally for you jazz heads.

Tuesday Jazz is the genre that owns the beginning of this week with The Low Notes at

Anthony B plays the Mateel Community Center at 9 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9. Courtesy of the artist

Mad River Brewery at 6 p.m. tonight for free. Over at Humboldt State University, the Redwood Jazz Alliance just so happens to be opening its 2017-2018 season tonight at 8 p.m. in the Kate Buchanan Room with Honey and Salt by jazz drummer Matt Wilson. For those of you who may not know, Honey and Salt is a collection of poetry by prairie laureate Carl Sandburg and this show tonight is music inspired by the midwest barn bard. Somehow I ended up with my grandfather’s copy of said collection of poetry when I was in high school and — while I’m showing off — would highly recommend “Love is a Deep and a Dark and a Lonely,” “Cahokia,” “Lackawanna Twilight” and “First Sonata for Karlen Paula.” It turns out Mr. Wilson is also a fan and Illinois native. He’s joined by cornetist Ron Miles, multi-reedist Jeff Lederer, bassist Martin Wind and pianist/

vocalist Dawn Clement. They’ll ask only $15 from you (or $10 from HSU students) to get in. Nine-piece “powerfunk” group from Brooklyn Turkuaz makes a stop at Humboldt Brews tonight at 9 p.m. to get you funked up and grooving. With influences such as Sly & the Family Stone and the Talking Heads, you know it’ll be a good time. $20 will get you in to this show. Wear something you don’t mind sweating in. Full show listings in the Journal’s Music and More grid, the Calendar and online. Bands and promoters, send your gig info, preferably with a high-res photo or two, to l Andy Powell is a congenital music lover and hosts The Album of the Week Show on KWPT 100.3 FM Tuesdays at 6 p.m. Music can change someone’s world. • Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017 • NORTH COAST JOURNAL

Fields of Dreams The Humboldt Botanical Garden celebrates its 25th anniversary this year — what better way to honor that achievement than with its annual Garden Gala Celebration happening Saturday, Sept. 9, from 1 to 5 p.m. ($60, $50 members, children 6-21 half price, under 6 free)? In addition to savoring the sprawling, lush scenery and miles of well-landscaped trails and attractions, attendees can enjoy local food, wine, art and music along with children’s crafts and activities. The gala is one of the garden’s main fundraisers, offering all of the beauty of an afternoon at the garden plus extra treats such as beer and root beer from Lost Coast Brewery and tacos, tri-tips and ice-cream sundaes. Traverse the trails to appreciate the diversity of the area’s native plants or find inspiration for your own garden, take a contemplative stroll through the spiral garden and stop by the new butterfly house, with its array of Monarchs, Western swallowtails, painted lady and red admirals. Plant yourself on the lawn and enjoy music from Accurate Productions, Inc.’s DJ Ben Herman in the main garden or enjoy acoustic ballads from Adamas, who’ll be playing at the Moss Family Temperate Woodland Garden, where wet creek beds brim with colorful perennials. Adding to the beauty, more than a dozen of Humboldt County’s favorite artists will paint lush garden scenes en plein air (“in the open air”) while you stroll the grounds. Many of the paintings will be available for sale with 40 percent of the proceeds going to the garden. And in the greenhouse, local businesses and friends of the garden have donated items for the silent auction. — Kali Cozyris

Dark Turns Social media and Satan’s son By John J. Bennett


INGRID GOES WEST. As a person mistrustful of social media and the vast, false fabric it represents, one might guess I would enjoy a prickly, misanthropic movie about lives both at the hot center and the colder fringes of swipe/like/love/#AMAZING. One would guess correctly and Ingrid Goes West is just such a thing. After the death of her mother from a protracted illness, Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza), unmoored and alone, pours herself into unhealthy fixation on the curated, seemingly flawless online life of a friendly acquaintance. When Ingrid’s myriad heart emoji and hashtags go unanswered, her feelings become too big to be contained by her phone and she lashes out IRL. Following a period of mandated residential therapy, Ingrid emerges refreshed but essentially unchanged. Unable to process her grief — or even clean the house — she finds solace in a new obsession: a pixyish LA photographer-cum-Instagram star named Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen), who lives the dream in a bungalow in Venice Beach, all mid-Century angularity and desert vibes, with a struggling-artist husband. Smitten, Ingrid stuffs a backpack with the 60-odd thousand dollars that constitute Mom’s estate and, as the title has it, makes for the left coast. Through of series of initially benign-seeming but increasingly disturbing moves, Ingrid manages to insinuate herself into the personal life of Taylor and her husband Ezra O’Keefe (Wyatt Russell), eventually drawing her landlord/aspiring screenwriter Dan Pinto (O’Shea Jackson Jr.) into her machinations. Things come to a head pretty precipitously. Ingrid Goes West, the feature debut from director Matt Spicer and co-writer David Branson Smith, finds a delicate and impressive balance both in its tone and the treatment of its characters. Not one among them is entirely likable, whole or healthy, but they are full and dynamic enough not to be completely loathsome, either. Ingrid, in particular, does the wrong thing at nearly every opportunity but we can watch her doing those things, expect-

ing the worst but still hoping somehow that they will turn out better next time. This is due in large part to Plaza’s complex, committed performance, one that finds her transcending the comfortable acerbic ingénue persona she’s honed over the years. Her Ingrid, raw and raging and dangerously compartmentalized, can’t bring herself to let others access her interior life, but doesn’t quite have the comportment to fully live the “better” one she attempts to build. Her trajectory is frustrating and devastating at once, as it’s clear that she is motivated by an inchoate and unmanageable well of pain and loss. While Ingrid is absolutely the center of the piece, the movie also neatly incorporates ideas about manufactured identity, self as commodity and the new celebrity. It name-checks some of its stalker-thriller influences, acknowledging them while also moving forward with a distinctive statement that is very much of its time but also cogent and smartly observed. It helps, of course, that the personal desolation and vacuity are tempered with moments of warmth and comedy. As much as the movie is about virtual friendship and prevarication, it grounds itself in honest notions of community and the need for real connection. R. 97M. MINOR. LITTLE EVIL won’t be found in theaters, as it is a recently released Netflix original, but is worth seeking out. From writer-director

Eli Craig, of the delightful and unexpected 2010 movie Tucker and Dale vs Evil, with which it shares self-aware horror-comedy lineage, it tells the story of newly married Gary (Adam Scott) and Samantha (Evangeline Lilly). They’re settling comfortably into an idyllic country life, except for Gary’s growing suspicion that his new stepson Lucas (Owen Atlas) is the Antichrist. Little Evil skews more comedy than horror, like Tucker and Dale before it, and as such makes for a light, pleasant entertainment. But it is also clever and stylish and funnier than most straight-ahead comedies. The supporting cast, including Sally Field, Taylor Labine and Bridgett Everett in a hilarious turn, helps the movie feel full and well rounded. While the ending may feel a little rushed, the humor, atmosphere and themes of love and understanding more than make up for that shortcoming. TVMA. 95m. — John J.

The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should under− stand 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 prop− erty. 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 infor− mation. 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, benefi− ciary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a cour− tesy 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 (800) 280− 2832 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.AUCTION.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 050419−CA. 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. FOR SALES INFORMATION: (800) 280− 2832 CLEAR RECON CORP. 4375 Jutland Drive San Diego, California 92117

Unwrapping the Past By Barry Evans


f you happen to be a time-traveler, do avoid Italy’s Bay of Naples on Aug. 24, 79 AD. That’s when Mount Vesuvius, dormant for 800 years, blew its top, completely engulfing several nearby Roman cities in a thick layer of volcanic ash. The disaster turned out to be a boon for future archaeologists. The most famous of the buried cities, Pompeii, was only rediscovered in 1599, and today you can wander its streets, enter into mosaic-rich courtyards and read graffiti on its walls. Nearby (and less-visited) Herculaneum is the home of the Villa of the Papyri, so called for the hundreds of papyrus scrolls found there shortly after the 1709 serendipitous discovery of the city by workers digging a well. Unlike the papyrus scrolls from sites in Egypt and the Near East, Herculaneum’s papyri and books in the form of rolled up animal skins were burnt to a crisp during the eruption. Over the years, archaeologists tried, disastrously, to unwrap the carbonized lumps which crumble at the lightest touch. Now, using really cool techniques (the next best thing to time-travel), researchers are bringing the ancient writings back to life. In order to read a carbonized papyrus without damaging it, the charred black lump that once was a 20-foot-long scroll is scanned non-invasively with x-rays, one super-thin slice at a time. The resulting 3D digital model is then “virtually unrolled” to reveal the original writing. The technique involves two modern breakthroughs: microtomography (3D x-rays, used routinely in hospital CAT scans) and sophisticated software to process the huge database of information. Computer scientist Brent Seales creat-

ed the software. He and his team at the University of Kentucky pioneered the virtual unrolling technique on a scroll found in 1970 at the ancient En-Gedi synagogue on the western shore of the Dead Sea. A fire in the sixth century AD destroyed the complex, but in the wreckage archaeologists found the synagogue’s Holy Ark, containing a lump of burnt papyrus. Israeli authorities presciently stored the En-Gedi scroll against the day when scientific progress could allow decipherment without damage to the fragile material. Forty-five years later, Seales’ team was able to do just that, scanning and virtually unwrapping the carbonized scroll without touching it. Two years ago, the team announced its findings after reading — on a computer screen — a 1,700-year-old Hebrew text from the biblical Book of Leviticus. The En-Gedi fragment was an easier challenge than the Herculaneum library scrolls because the Jewish scribes used ink containing iron, which stood out from the backing. (Iron absorbs x-rays more than does burnt papyrus.) In contrast, ink used on the Villa of the Papyri scrolls is carbon-based, and burnt animal skin is essentially ... carbon, so differential absorption couldn’t be used. Instead, scientists used a new technique known as x-ray phase contrast tomography to read the scrolls by measuring the difference in refraction between the ink and the underlying papyrus. Researchers have just started to analyze the Herculaneum scrolls. So far they’ve discovered 2,000-year-old texts written by a follower of Epicurus, the Greek philosopher who promoted ataraxia, peace of mind cultivated by living self-sufficiently in the company of friends. Hundreds of scrolls remain to be digitally read, with possibly thousands more — a potential treasure trove from the past — awaiting rediscovery in the unexcavated parts of Herculaneum. I bet Epicurus would have enjoyed the idea of his words being reread by future generations — perhaps finding ataraxia in his contemplation. ● Barry Evans ( is still haunted by a day spent in Pompeii many years ago.

Meet our Employee: Patricia Fuson

Patricia Fuson

Murphy’s Market is proud to introduce their new Wellness and General Merchandise Manager, Patricia Fuson. With over a decade of experience, Patricia hopes to grow the products available at all five Murphy’s locations and introduce more local products to all locations. “I am really open to the expansion and creation of all of our wellness departments and store merchandise. We have so many awesome local products and we would be doing a disservice as a local grocery store to not feature as many as

possible,” explains Patricia. “When I am not at work, I enjoy running and hanging out with my husband, stepson and cats. I love all things health and wellness. I really like to laugh. It’s important to not take things too seriously,” explains Patricia. Since Patricia will be working at all Murphy’s locations, keep an eye out for her when you are shopping your local Murphy’s. Also, keep an eye out for new products and local specials.
