Nothing New Editor: I read with interest the Dec. 13 article “The Housing Games.” In the mid-1970s, I coordinated a student survey on Humboldt State University campus for the Humboldt Tenants Union, under the umbrella of HSU student governments. Survey results back then identified pretty much the same issues covered in your recent article. Sherry Skillwoman, Arcata

Editor: During this past election, voters were asked what was important to them. Health care, education, living wage jobs, immigration reform, bringing manufacturing jobs back to America, nuclear weapons proliferation, affordable housing, fair trade and homelessness topped our lists (“Top 10,” Dec. 27). One that wasn’t as prevalent but that makes the others pale in comparison is climate change — possibly because we either don’t want to believe that it exists or because we personally feel helpless to do much about it. But we can, we must. Climate change can and will destroy much of human civilization as we know it. The answer is to reduce carbon emissions by reducing and eventually eliminating our reliance on fossil fuels. Solar and wind power are our salvation, along with responsible hydroelectric and nuclear power. Our top priorities must be to convince our government
to force these changes. Big power companies know the truth and that change is inevitable but they will not change quickly — their investments are too great, so they will drag their feet. To paraphrase JFK, we must not only ask our government to act but we must ask ourselves — you and me — what we can do. We can do much in small ways: eliminating single use plastic containers including straws (these are petroleum products), driving less and with fuel efficient cars and gradually converting to electric vehicles, buying food products from local farmers, cutting back on red meats from animals that produce methane and that consume food that we can eat, conserving forest lands that efficiently absorb carbon dioxide, and — you finish the list. What can we do to keep carbon emissions growth to a less than a 1.5 centigrade increase in the near — very near future? I am nearing age 82 and will avoid the apocalypse. Will you? Will your children and grandchildren? Edward Webb, McKinleyville
‘Pity’ Editor: I am always stirred to pity for the human race when I read an article like “A Special Place” (Dec. 20). How desperately we little people have to struggle to save the last fragments of our once rich, elaborate, creative, imaginative forests! What huge sums we have to scrape together to pay these giant money-raking corporations not to annihilate our water-purifying,
Broken is the black body Broken its name Broken its fine bones, its dark flesh Broken the soul into which we peer (blood pooling, unmoving over whom some badged bully looms) Broken the spirit incarcerated emasculated forgotten Broken the family without this ______: (blank) ever absent: Broken the neighborhood, the barred and shattered windows the gangs, the bullet always keening and hungry Broken the word we employ to tell this story. Mere graffiti. Broken the language that cannot help us understand Broken the eye that watches Broken the eye that spins us what to watch Broken the leaders who say what the eye should show, what the eye should see, what all that must mean Broken the machine that says face it this is the only system everyone must obey Broken the words by which we intone this sorry story. Broken in turn are we who place the wafer of hatred onto our children’s tongues. Broken the children who choke down this lie, knowing no better than what we insist must be so. — David Holper
soil-generating, climate-cooling, species-hosting, carbon sequestering, mystery-harboring friends who are thousands of times more ancient than we are as a community of beings! We’re not getting pepper spray poured into our eyes any more, as once happened in our congressman’s office, or lowered hundreds of feet upside down wrapped in duct tape. And MAXXAM isn’t selling us back 1 percent of its land for the price it paid for the whole thing. All the same, we are paying through our noses to these accidental landlords for forests, much of which they’ll continue to log. Part of the reason we on the North Coast are in a climate refuge is because of our forests. “You can replace forests with plantations. You can also arrange Beethoven’s Ninth for a kazoo,” as Richard Powers put it. The land trusts are polite and dignified about it, as described in your article. They “highlight” the generosity of the sellers. But what we buyers are really like is the medieval French peasants who ran up the mountains and hugged the trees when the king’s soldiers came to cut them down for his wars because they knew their water, farms and livelihoods would be destroyed. As David Brower said, “We did not inherit the Earth from our fathers, we are stealing it from our children.” Therefore let us bravely greet the New Year and salute in sorrow all we have lost in the old.

‘Truly Mesmerizing’ Editor: David Wilson’s breathtaking photographs are a marvelous way to herald a new year (“North Coast Night Lights,” Jan. 3). The truly mesmerizing images capture the wonder that people throughout the ages have experienced when gazing skyward at night. In a place of natural beauty, the epic cascade of Milky Way stars stretching across the heavens is enhanced by the well-composed setting for each photograph. The counterpoint of firelight, a trestle, fences and headlights in some of the photos places us in the midst of this beautiful scenery adding to the connection we have with our surroundings. The glow of horizontal moonlight in another adds a touch of mystery to all we can see in the heavens. Thank you David for your artistic renderings of the heavens and to the Journal for such an inspirational first issue of the New Year. Stephen Avis, Ferndale

n one of his first acts with the newly seated House of Representatives, North Coast Congressman Jared Huffman joined his Democrat colleagues in voting to pass two bills to end the federal government shutdown. The votes — one to fund the Department of Homeland Security into February as lawmakers seek out a compromise on President Trump’s demands of $5.7 billion to construct a wall along the nation’s southern border and the other to fund the balance of federal departments through the end of the year — were largely symbolic, of course, as Trump hasn’t budged on his demands and Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has refused to bring any funding bill to a vote that the president hasn’t promised to sign. The day following the votes, Huffman was back in his home district, picking up trash in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, which is run by the National Park Service. Working with Rep. Jackie Speier, Huffman filled two 32-gallon trashcans with what he dubbed “Trump trash” and planned to deliver the trash to the White House on Jan. 8, shortly before Trump was slated to address the nation. The congressman has been withering in his criticism of the president and his demands for border wall funding. “I voted to end President Trump’s callous shutdown and reopen the government,” he said in a statement issued after the Jan. 4 votes. “President Trump and his Republican allies in the Senate are cheapening public service, when they should be showing our federal workers the dignity and respect they deserve by reopening the government and providing these workers with the pay they earned.” In addition to hundreds of federal employees in Humboldt County who are working without a paycheck, there are a host of programs that rely on federal funding. It seems most are operating on reserves but many indicate they are bracing for impact should the shutdown

continue into next month. Nationwide, there are approximately 800,000 federal employees affected by the shutdown, with some forced to work without pay while others have simply been directed to stay home. Humboldt County is home to about 1,500 federal workers, according to Cheston McGuire, spokesperson for the American Federation of Government Employees, spread across the Bureau of Land Management, the National Park Service, the National Forest Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife, the U.S. Coast Guard, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and other agencies. McGuire said his union still doesn’t know how many of those locals are furloughed or working without pay. Journal attempts to ascertain the full impact of the shutdown on Humboldt County workers have similarly been unsuccessful. At some agencies there was simply no one available to pick up the phone and field media inquiries, while others sent reporters’ calls back to Washington D.C., where spokespeople issued generic statements and declined to offer specifics. What we do know is that the more than 200 local members of the U.S. Coast Guard feared they wouldn’t be paid as scheduled Dec. 28, having been warned to prepare for the worst and inquire about short-term loans and mortgage deferments, but were granted a last-minute reprieve when Coast Guard officials and the administration worked out a stop-gap measure that allowed the agency to make payroll. However, Vice Commandant Adm. Charles Ray warned in a department-wide email that there wouldn’t be money to issue checks for service members next pay day — Jan. 15 — should the shutdown continue. The median American household has $11,700 in savings, according to a survey from the personal finance site MagnifyMoney.com, which also found that the median savings for the bottom 40 percent of American households by income is
$0. A report last year from CareerBuilder. com, meanwhile, found that 78 percent of full-time workers across the nation report living paycheck to paycheck. But federal employees are only one side of the shutdown coin; there are also those who rely on federal services and federal funding. The New York Times reported this week that the administration has ordered the Internal Revenue Service to issue tax returns — something that had been in doubt — meaning that early filers will be due to receive their returns as scheduled but the employees cutting the checks will be working without pay. Then there are locally administered programs that rely on federal funds. Most notable among these are CalFresh, which provides food assistance to low-income households, the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program, which provides nutrition and health care referrals for low-income new mothers and their children, up to the age of 5, and CalWORKs, which provides temporary financial assistance and employment services to low-income families. All three operate on federal funds, though they are administered through the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services. According to DHHS spokesperson Christine Messinger, CalFresh served 20,082 local individuals in November, while CalWORKs provided assistance to 3,830 people that same month in Humboldt County. WIC, meanwhile, averages about 3,360 clients per month. Messinger told the Journal that CalFresh and WIC both have funding into February. If the shutdown persists beyond then, she said California could opt to continue providing its portion of benefits until it ends. She said she expects CalWORKs benefits to continue, noting that through previous shutdowns the state has used reserves to continue providing benefits. The Humboldt Senior Resource Center and Food for People, meanwhile, also rely
North Coast Congressman Jared Huffman with his “Trump trash.” Twitter
on federal funds to offer their programs. Both organizations have indicated they have yet to see any disruption in funding, though they are fearful that may change should the shutdown stretch on. As for what impact the shutdown is having on local tribes, some of which rely on federal funds to administer a variety of programs, from medical services to childcare, Journal attempts to get on-therecord information from local tribes were largely unsuccessful by deadline. During the 2013 shutdown, however, the Yurok Tribe temporarily shut down its childcare facility and furloughed its 60 employees for two weeks. But so far, the tribe remains operating at full capacity, according to Executive Director Javier Kinney. “The Yurok Tribe, the largest tribe in California, provides essential and direct services that will be impacted in the event of an extended federal government shutdown,” Kinney said in a statement. “Currently, the tribal government is running at full capacity. If a protracted shutdown occurs, we are prepared to implement a plan, prioritizing the health and welfare of the Yurok people, to continue operations at a reduced level.” Meanwhile, Blair Kreuzer, director of Two Feather Native American Family Services in McKinleyville, said services there have so far been unaffected but indicated that may change. Mike Sawyer of Potawot Health Village said the facility has been similarly untouched thus far. As to Huffman and his trash bags, it’s worth noting that while he spent time in the southern part of his district picking up refuse on National Park Service land, Redwood National and State Park — by
far Humboldt County’s most notable attraction — remains open. Additionally, California State Parks has extended trash removal and restroom cleaning services to the federally owned portions of the park. For his part, Huffman has adamantly referred to the shutdown as a “political stunt” by the president, who has insisted the border wall is a matter of national security and necessary to keep immigrants and drug smugglers from illegally crossing the border. “As the shutdown continues, President Trump is placing American families, federal employees, diplomats, Coast Guard service members, small businesses, Indian Country and national parks in jeopardy,” he said in a statement. “I urge Mitch McConnell and President Trump to put the interests of the American people over this ridiculous request for a border wall and allow Congress to get back to the business of governing.” While the impacts of the shutdown have so far been largely invisible in Humboldt County to those who don’t draw a federal paycheck, it seems that could change quickly should the impasse continue into February. “We encourage Democrats and Republicans to expeditiously end the federal government shutdown,” Kinney, of the Yurok Tribe, said in his statement. ● Freddy Brewster and Tony Wallin contributed to this report.

The Aches and Pains of Getting Older One Native’s perspective By André P. Cramblit email@example.com
ccording to the American Association of Retired People, there are 108.7 million folks in the United States over the age of 50. This includes 76.4 million Boomers (born 1946-1964), compared with 49 million Gen Xers and 82 million millennials. Moreover, the number of people 50-plus will continue to grow over the next decade to the tune of 19 million, versus a growth of only 6 million for the 18-to-49 population. I am in the tail end of the Baby Boomer generation having been born in 1963. At 55 years of age, I am eligible for a few discounts at a variety of shopping locations and am experiencing the cadre of issues that confront the growing demographic of aging Americans. My first clue that I was getting older came when I started hearing my favorite rock and roll songs done up as easy listening tunes and played in elevators and as background Muzak at places I shop. Then people started calling me sir. Now this happened to me at an earlier age than most since I have been going prematurely gray since my early teens. I stopped getting carded years ago. I don’t mind getting a bit older but hearing Pink Floyd at the mall was anathema to me. I had my only child, a son, when I was 32. With an average life expectancy of 78.9 years in the United States, I wasn’t quite a middle-age father but I was certainly older than a lot of my friends and others in my generation who had children right out of college while in their early 20s. I felt my age as my little crumb cruncher ran me through my paces as he grew up. My declining amount of time, due to work obligations, and vigor, due to my advancing years, was no match for his boundless energy. It didn’t help that I was breaking the scales at a whopping 365 pounds. So, I had a gastric bypass surgery that resulted in some complications, nearly a year-long recovery and, eventually, 180 pounds of lost weight. Now I am at an age in which I have to take proactive care of my health. (My colonoscopy story is an odyssey unto itself that I will not bore you with at this time.) My monthly trip to the pharmacist leaves me laden with a lengthy list of prescriptions that requires a pill caddy. I have a pedometer app for my phone to help remind me to keep my step count up to recommended levels (not that I make it that often). I have
also switched my diet to incorporate more organic fruits and vegetables and I try to cook with less fat and salt. As I age I have noticed my body has created a cacophony of clicks and pops in my bones from old injuries and arthritis. If you can believe it, I have found that it is even possible to sleep wrong, waking in pain from having my arm in an inappropriate position. Being a modern Native, I now crawl into bed with a heating pad rather than the heated rock wrapped in newspapers that my great Aunt Violet was fond of. Just as important as heat to bring blood to my spasming lower back, I have found that ice is now my friend to help reduce swelling. I have faced age discrimination, to be certain. Nearly four years ago, I decided it was time to explore new career challenges and I began looking for work with new organizations. Having been in my job for a number of years, I was used to a certain level of pay. It seemed like every interview I went to was looking for younger people who would be willing to do the same job for significantly less money. It took nearly a year and half to find an organization that appreciated my unique combination of skills and experience and was willing to compensate me accordingly. I enjoy the work I do now. My only regret is that, as I get older, I realize I may have been more of a grasshopper than an ant in the fable that gave merit to saving for lean times, or retirement, in this case. Like most Americans, I have lived outside my means and accrued a heady level of debt. This includes home and car loans, as well as credit cards. Now that I have a son in college, I realize retirement is but a distant, shimmering dream as equity in my house has gone to tuition and we are part of the middle class that gets little financial aid other than loans. Hindsight being 20/20 and all, I should have set up a tax deferred tuition fund for my son when he was born. My advice: Find extra income where you can, use your spare hours in a profitable way, play the lottery more and put as much as you can away for the time when you will need that retirement income. Just my two dentalias worth. ● André Cramblit is at ease with getting older though he shed a tear or two when the Arcata School of Massage closed down.

n one of its first acts, the newly seated House of Representatives introduced bipartisan legislation that would require the federal government to take a hands-off approach to cannabis and let states establish their own laws and programs. “The national consensus on medical marijuana is solid and bipartisan, but our federal drug laws continue to treat patients and their doctors like criminals,” one of the bill’s authors, Steve Cohen (D-Tennessee) said in a statement supporting the bill, which boasted 42 co-sponsors. Over in the Senate, a bipartisan coalition stands ready to introduce the bill, with senators Cory Booker (D-New Jersey), Cory Gardner (R-Colorado) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) all having pledged support. And President Trump indicated last summer that he “probably will end up” supporting the bill. So bully, right? Weed is all but legalized. Not so fast. Those pushing to see the end of the folly that is federal prohibition still have two huge hurdles. First and foremost, there’s the fact that the Senate is still under Republican control, meaning Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) is still in the driver’s seat as majority leader. Not only has McConnell flatly stated that he has “no plans to endorse the legalization of marijuana,” he also just trumpeted a big win with the legalization of industrial hemp — marijuana’s THC-less cousin — and CBD products in the passage of the federal Farm Bill. McConnell supported that effort in large part because industrial hemp is poised to become a huge cash crop in Kentucky, especially as the legal market for CBD products is projected to expand rapidly. Plainly, legalizing cannabis outright undercuts that. The one thing working in weed’s favor here is that Gardner is facing a tough re-election fight in 2020 in Colorado, where close to 70 percent of voters favor federal legalization. Republicans currently hold a three-seat majority in the Senate and, if it looks like that’s in danger, it’s possible McConnell would allow the bill to go to a Senate vote in an effort to keep Republicans’ majority. But that 2020 thing cuts both ways and there in lies the second hurdle. If the bill were to win the blessing of the Senate
and head to Trump’s desk, his signature would give a huge win to Booker, rumored to be mulling a 2020 presidential run, and Warren, who last week became the first prominent Democrat to announce she’ll take Trump on in 2020. Faced with signing a bill that ends decades of disastrous federal policy that has disproportionately hurt people of color or protecting his own self-interests, what do you think Trump would do?
l In somewhat related news, Lori Ajax, who heads California’s Bureau of Cannabis Control, told the New York Times last week that the solution to the Golden State’s staggering cannabis surplus, which has hamstrung legal markets and propped up black market actors, is federal legalization. “It would be wonderful if we could sell to other states,” she told the Times. Sure. Some think it would be wonderful to have their weed delivered via unicorn-operated drones, too. But at other points in the story, Ajax seems to have her feet more squarely on the ground, saying the bureau plans to launch a public education campaign promoting the benefits of buying cannabis from licensed retailers — hey, we’re on record, too, urging folks to buy legal or risk contributing to excruciating deaths of a variety of furry critters, some of which are endangered (see “The Choice is Yours,” Jan. 25, 2018). But it’s also clear California’s glut runs deeper than Californians’ purchasing preferences. A report published last year by the California Department of Food and Agriculture found that while Californians produce an estimated 15.5 million pounds of cannabis a year, they only consume about 2.5 million pounds, leaving 13 million pounds traveling across state lines. Ajax told the Times the state would have to “get more aggressive” and “step up” enforcement. Unfortunately, history has shown that strategy has a pretty dismal track record. l

Wheeler Steps Down, MCSD Seeks New Board Member
Lawson Case: DA Awaiting Additional DNA Information from DOJ
n 2011, George Wheeler, a McKinleyville resident and Vietnam veteran was horrified to see a neighbor spraying a potent herbicide on the hayfields near his home. As a victim of Agent Orange poisoning, Wheeler did not want his five children exposed to anything that might endanger their health. He quickly found other neighbors were just as concerned and a little research revealed that the property belonged to the McKinleyville Community Services District (MCSD), which leased it to a dairy farmer. The neighborhood organized and began attending the district board meetings, demanding that spraying of herbicides cease. Board members — as well as some members of the public —wondered how the hundreds of acres of open space that the district manages could be maintained without pesticides. Wheeler introduced the board to the concept of integrated pest management, which has been described as “an intermediary between organic and conventional methods.” It is often used by agencies or cities, such as Arcata, which must manage large areas of open space. Maintenance staff emphasize prevention, using materials and designs that discourage pests, using organic practices like mulching and encouraging grazing where appropriate. Weeds are hand-pulled, mowed or burned. Insect egg-masses are removed by hand. If that is not enough, biological controls can be used. But chemical pesticides may only be used as a last resort and those least harmful to human health and the environment must be tried first. Wheeler was elected to the district board of directors in 2013 and has served since then, winning re-election to another four-year term in November. During his term of office, integrated pest management was adopted as an official policy of the district. Wheeler is also passionate about solar
energy. The district uses a large amount of energy to operate its sewage treatment and drinking water distribution pumps. Wheeler convinced the board to design a solar photovoltaic energy system for these purposes and, last year, won a $4.9 million grant from the state. The timing was perfect, since the district was also upgrading its sewage treatment plant to meet new upgraded environmental standards. However, Wheeler’s personal health has been failing. He has been struggling with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma since 2001 but managed to maintain a normal life. He saw no reason to believe this would change when he filed his intention to run for another term on the board with the county elections office in June. But over the next few months, the cancer took a turn for the worse and, by December, it became obvious that he could no longer fulfill the duties of a board member. He submitted his letter of resignation Dec. 10 and the Humboldt County Elections Office was notified of the vacancy four days later. Although the board could hold a special election to fill Wheeler’s seat, it would be costly and they consequently decided to appoint a replacement who will serve until the next general election in 2020. Members of the public are invited to apply for the position. The board wants somebody who is a McKinleyville resident, understands the district’s mission and whose prior history of employment, education and community service shows that he or she would be suited for the position of a director. The ideal candidate would have some business and financial experience. Letters of interest can be written to the Board Secretary, McKinleyville Community Service District, PO Box 2037, McKinleyville, CA 95519.

he mother of slain Humboldt State University sophomore David Josiah Lawson took to Facebook Jan. 8 to express frustration that the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office still hasn’t made a charging decision in her son’s case two months after the Arcata Police Department handed over its investigation. “The Department of justice [has] identified my son’s DNA on the knife that was used to stab him to death,” Charmaine Lawson posted on the Justice for David Josiah Lawson Facebook page. “They have also identified my [son’s] murderer on the knife, yet the case is still being reviewed. Where’s the justice?” District Attorney Maggie Fleming, meanwhile, indicated her office is still doing due diligence in determining the strength of the case in order to determine how to proceed. David Josiah Lawson, 19, was fatally stabbed during an altercation at an off-campus party April 15, 2017. A 23-yearold McKinleyville man, Kyle Zoellner, was arrested at the scene and charged with Lawson’s murder but a judge later found there was insufficient evidence to hold him on the charge and dismissed the case. The case was again turned over to the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office Nov. 9 after former APD interim Chief Richard Ehle said forensic testing had found “unequivocal physical evidence” linking a specific suspect to Lawson’s killing. Ehle declined to publicly elaborate on either the evidence or the suspect at the time. District Attorney Maggie Fleming told the Journal on Dec. 2 that her review of the case was ongoing and would span another four to six weeks. Asked to respond to Charmaine Lawson’s Jan. 8 Facebook comments, Fleming indicated in an email to the Journal that the evidence may not be as clear as indicated.
“The interpretation of the analysis of DNA on the knife is of course critical to the case,” Fleming wrote. “That is one of the issues we found incompletely resolved in the case file we received from the Arcata Police Department, therefore we requested additional information on the analysis from the California Department of Justice. We must know what experts will say under oath about the DNA analysis to make a just decision about the case. We are also seeking additional information on a second issue. Justice would not be served by a decision by our Office that does not take into account critical existing information.” Charmaine Lawson, who has filed a claim for damages against the city of Arcata alleging APD botched the initial investigation into her son’s death, has repeatedly pushed officials in the city, the district attorney’s office, HSU and the California State University system to bring her son’s killer to justice. “Today makes 2 months since Humboldt County DA Maggie Fleming has received my son DJ’s case from APD for review,” she wrote on Facebook. “January 15th will be 21 months since my Son was viciously murdered ... I will not stop fighting for you my son, I promise you we will get justice. #JusticeForDJ.” She then urged supporters to call the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office and to ask Fleming, “if it was her daughter what would she do?” Fleming declined to offer a timeline for her office’s review moving forward. “I do not have a way to provide a timeline because justice would not be served by making a decision without all the information we need and I’m not in control of when we will receive it,” she wrote. A vigil for David Josiah Lawson is planned on Jan. 15 at Arcata City Hall. — Kym Kemp and Thadeus Greenson POSTED: 01.08.19

‘OVERWHELMINGLY WHITE’ Amid diversity concerns, the Eureka Women’s March comes to a crossroads By Thadeus Greenson firstname.lastname@example.org
rom the outside looking in, the announcement came like the explosive crack of a falling tree limb after its center gives way, under too much pressure to bear its weight. On Dec. 28, the eight to 10 people organizing this year’s Eureka Women’s March sent out a short press release announcing they would not be holding a rally on Jan. 19 in conjunction with hundreds of cities across the nation, where women and others will gather in a public show of resistance to the policies and rhetoric of President Donald Trump. “The local organizers are continuing to meet and discuss how to broaden representation in the organizing committee to create an event that represents and supports people who live here in Humboldt,” the release stated. “Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several
Demonstrators gather at the foot of C Street in Eureka to listen to speakers before the 2018 Women’s March. Mark McKenna perspectives in our community. Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach.” Within a couple of days, the group’s announcement had made national headlines, with media outlets from The Washington Post and Fox News to Newsweek and Breitbart picking up the news and zeroing in on the phrase “overwhelmingly white.” Some treated the story purely as novelty — the notion that a rural town with a population that’s 75 percent white would cancel its march because the majority of the people who turned out were white. Others tied it into national news and reports that marches had been canceled in Chicago, New Orleans and Washington amid allegations of anti-Semitism. And some conservative pundits treated the news with a mix of indignation and glee, using it both as an example of “reverse racism” — what would happen if a march
were canceled for being “overwhelmingly black,” they asked breathlessly — and that the left is turning on itself, consumed by politically correct infighting. A few days after its initial release, on Dec. 31, the Eureka organizing committee sent out another press release, trying to make clear its decision was about the makeup of the committee, not the demographics of the march itself. The organizing committee was entirely white, they said, and they feared that without incorporating the voices of people of color and varying gender identities, they wouldn’t be able to organize an event that spoke for all women, especially those most vulnerable. Instead, the organizers said, they were doubling down on their efforts to form a more diverse committee, with an eye on holding an event on March 9 in conjunction with International Women’s Day. The release included a statement from local NAACP chapter
President Sharrone Blanck applauding the committee’s decision. “They want to do it right,” Blanck said. “That means the organizers want to build relationships with the larger community of women so that the march actually reflects the diversity of experiences of women in Humboldt County. The organizers checked themselves. They want to do it right, not just have a march.” But, while some voiced support for the organizing committee’s decision and attempts at inclusion, it quickly became apparent a large swath of local community really wants to march Jan. 19. On Jan. 3, a former Eureka city councilmember, Linda Atkins, filed a permit application with the city to put the event on in conjunction with cities throughout the nation. “I heard that the march was canceled and I was really disappointed and I was Continued on next page »

looking for someone to come in and start it again and nobody did. So I did,” Atkins said, adding that she really didn’t understand the organizers’ decision. “There was a problem with the organizing committee, they thought they should have had a more diverse group. But if they had been organizing for a while, why didn’t they just do that?” A few days before Atkins filed the permit application, several organizing committee members — Allison Edrington, Kelsey Reedy and Beth Wylie — appeared on KHSU Magazine to discuss their decision. Asked about people in the community who wanted to proceed with a Jan. 19 march, Wiley said she worried it had the potential to be a “divisive event.” “I applaud those who really want to march and I ask them to check themselves and ask what their purpose is in marching,” Wiley said, adding that she hoped such introspection would cause them to join her and her colleagues in planning the March 9 event. As the Journal went to press Jan. 8, Atkins and a small cohort of volunteers were busily planning for Jan. 19. While some enthusiastically supported the effort, others locally pledged to boycott the event.
The first Women’s March was held Jan. 21, 2017, the day after Trump’s inauguration, planned as a public showing of resistance to the election of a presidential candidate many in progressive circles felt is simply anti-women. In what was heralded as the largest single-day protest in U.S. history, people flooded the streets in communities throughout the nation denouncing Trump’s harsh campaign rhetoric — including disparaging comments about minorities and women — and to advocate policies of inclusion, reproductive rights and equity. The unmistakable symbol of the march quickly became the “pussy hat,” a nod to Trump’s infamous “grab-them-bythe-pussy” comments in a leaked Access Hollywood tape. The hats, knit of pink yarn, have floppy cat-like ears on the corners, an effort to reclaim the term — one echoed by many march signs that read “This Pussy Grabs Back.” In Eureka, the 2017 march was planned in less than three weeks. “By then, (Trump) had pretty much insulted people across all demographics — veterans, immigrants, people with disabilities, members of the media, people of all ethnicities,” Julie Fulkerson said. “It

The 2017 march moves up F Street and turns down Third Street. Mark McKenna was an endless onslaught of vulgarities and insults. A group of us who had spent entire lives fighting for human rights jumped in to organize the first march.” Fulkerson said the effort was largely led by Terry Uyeki (who declined to comment for this story) but included task-specific teams of volunteers. “There were several subgroups who worked day and night to pull this off, everything from coordinating with police and fire and ambulance service, raising funds for equipment and toilets to making sure the speakers on the podium represented as many aspects of the community as possible,” Fulkerson said. “We worked hard to make sure that everyone felt welcome in the march.” The march drew as many as 8,000 people, by police estimates, becoming the largest march or rally in Eureka history — eclipsing those held in recent decades to protest foreign wars, timber companies and immigration laws. It was heralded as a success, and many expressed that they walked away feeling empowered and emboldened. After the march, Fulkerson said the original organizers went back to their lives, following other passions and causes,
content to hand the march off to a new group in the coming year. A new organizing committee ultimately stepped forward a couple of weeks before the 2018 march and put it together on the fly. While down from 2017, the turnout was strong again, with up to 5,000 people flooding the streets of Old Town to protest Trump, promote the #MeToo movement and advocate for women’s rights. But almost immediately some fissures surfaced.

In the week after the 2018 event,
some in the community voiced concerns. The speakers list was less diverse than the first year. It included a cisgender man and left some voices absent entirely. Tina Sampay, a Humboldt State University graduate and member of the local NAACP, posted to the Women’s March Facebook page about a week after the event: “As a black woman in Humboldt County I did not feel included or represented at that march. #DoBetter #WomensMarchEureka.” In a follow-up comment, Sampay

lamented that organizers had only asked the NAACP about scheduling a speaker a “day or two before the event.” Edrington quickly responded. “That is a completely valid criticism of this year’s march,” she wrote. “We can do better. … The organizing team was also distressed about this lack of representation of black women. Planning will start much sooner for next year’s march so I am hopeful that we can get commitments from speakers earlier and include more people in the planning process, both to respect people’s time and to ensure the facets of our community are represented.” Other issues quickly became apparent, too. Some said that the march — with its high turnout and visibility — was failing to bring energy to other local social justice efforts. “I held out hope that my sisters’ visibility and amplified voices on mic in front of hundreds of neighbors would mean more folks showing up to directly support explicitly anti-racist, pro-justice efforts being led primarily by women of color, young women, queer and trans women and non-binary folks,” Leila Roberts posted to the Women’s March Facebook page on Jan. 28, 2018, lamenting that “hardly anyone showed” for a pair of events that had been plugged at the march. Reedy said she heard from people that the event didn’t do enough to spur change. “I received input from local individuals and groups … that protesting the inauguration of Trump is missing the underlying issue when Trump is only a symptom of the larger problem of patriarchy, white supremacy and capitalism, which are all under the umbrella of colonization,” she wrote in an email to the Journal. “This march is a single action event where all these women, particularly white women, get to mark the box of being ‘politically active’ and then are nowhere to be seen within the social movement world the rest of the year. Where are these 5,000 people when other marches/rallies/ campaigns are happening for women facing more systems of oppression than patriarchy?” Meanwhile, some also voiced that they found the pussy hats — the most visible symbol of the march — offensive. First off, they noted, the pink color didn’t seem inclusive of people of color. Second, they said, the hats seemed to intone that a certain type of genitalia is integral to womanhood, leaving some transgender women and non-binary folks out of the movement. Finally, some Native women, including Tia Oros Peters, executive director of the Seventh Generation Fund, said they found the hats terribly offensive,

given that after the massacres of native people in some places whites would cut off their victims genitalia to fasten to hats or belts as trophies. When the march’s organizing committee reconvened in late September to begin planning this year’s event, it’s clear all this was at the forefront of their minds. Edrington and Reedy both said members felt an urgency to broaden the committee and bring in a more diverse swath of voices. “Primarily, our outreach consisted of connecting with individuals and groups whom the organizing team was aware of and/or connected to, and we used the Facebook group and our email list developed from the event,” Edrington wrote in an email to the Journal, conceding that the group “definitely should have done more outreach.” When the committee reconvened for its second meeting, it was clear the outreach efforts had not born fruit. Reedy said she then pushed the committee to commit to canceling the event if it could not diversify the committee in the coming weeks. What’s unclear — and what Reedy and Edrington didn’t directly answer — is why
the committee didn’t opt to take their effort public, to issue a press release inviting participation or to let the community know the event was in danger of being canceled or postponed. The only thing intoning there were issues surrounding the 2019 event on the group’s Facebook page was a cryptic Dec. 17 post by Wylie: “Our march is at a crossroads as we seek to create an event that represents all members of our community. Come help us decide the march’s fate.” It invited people to attend a meeting the following day. It’s also unclear when the final decision not to hold the Jan. 19 march was made. But when it was announced Dec. 28, the backlash from some circles was fierce. “Some individuals (on the committee) have been getting an influx of hate mail, primarily from white men out of the area, and at least one person has received death threats,” Edrington wrote. There was also an uproar locally from some who — like Atkins — expressed the feeling that the Women’s March was being taken away from them.

A group of Native women near the front of the 2017 march. Mark McKenna nationally — shouldn’t necessarily be surprising, said College of the Redwoods political science professor Ryan Emenaker. “This is a common struggle with social movements and event planning that is looking to promote social change,” he said. “The first one, sometimes it’s enough to just have people be in a space together to vent frustrations. But after you’ve done that, people start to look for more than a parade or a rally and start asking, what are we doing to push things forward? The first year is always easier because people are happy to grab a sign and show up.” One of organizers’ biggest goals in holding these events is to galvanize people, to inspire them to do more. But by their nature the organizers are almost always more invested than the majority that shows up to these very visible rallies and marches. Emenaker said this was a recurring issue in the civil rights movement, when organizers would struggle to get handfuls of people involved in actions, sit-ins and protests only to see thousands show up for a speech from a notable leader, like Martin Luther King Jr. “The infighting between organizers and others engaged, that’s one of the com-
mon themes throughout all social change work,” he said. “It’s how you then address and deal with that. Sometimes, I guess, that’s canceling a march and other times it’s probably keeping it going.” And sometimes, apparently, it means divergent factions, each doing what they think is right. For her part, Atkins said she attended last year’s march and walked away energized, and wants folks to have a similar experience this year. “It was just an amazing coming together from all the different communities that make up Humboldt County, and it was a time when people were talking to people they didn’t normally talk to,” she said. “It just felt really good to participate and I didn’t want to see us not have one.” As to whether the event will prove divisive, Atkins said she’s not concerned. “We really want everyone to join in, in the march and the rally, and there’s no barriers to anyone doing that,” she said. “I’m not trying to create any division. I’m just trying to bring people together. … It’s a fairly simple thing.” Simple, in this case, is clearly in the eye of the beholder. After Atkins’ announcement that the march was back on, Oros
Peters took to Facebook. “This region has serious wounds,” she wrote. “There are many deep holes — vacancies in the thinking and actions of people of this area who consider themselves progressive, or even ‘woke.’ This is especially in regard to bringing into public discourse and most importantly into positive action remedies for the issues … regarding Indigenous Peoples and, also, the unresolved murder of a black student, Josiah Lawson … There has to be more than a sea of smiling pink hats with pats on their own backs for an annual walk around Old Town, while silencing, marginalizing and ignoring real issues of justice and ongoing colonization. “I am boycotting the Eureka Women’s March. I encourage all Peoples of Conscience and Honor to do the same. No justice, no peace.” l

Hum Plate Roundup
Parm, pastrami and double dessert By Jennifer Fumiko Cahill email@example.com
Red sauce for the blues Pity those whose otherwise broadening travels render them unable to enjoy American immigrant iterations of their ancestral cuisines. I think of my old classmate returning from a semester in Rome, heartbroken from an affair and recoiling from the messy red spaghetti and glass shakers of parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes that seemed to him newly inauthentic. It was loss upon loss, in my view, to break up with the very vinyl booths and candle-stuffed chianti bottles that might have given solace. By all means, let love break your heart but not your appetite. An NCJ staffer’s recommendation sent us to Ferndale Pizza Co. (607 Main St., Ferndale) for an eggplant parmigiana ($13.70) that would make a fine emotional salve. A solid Italian American classic, the broad slices of eggplant, dipped in egg and homemade breadcrumbs with parmigiana cheese, and fried until their flesh is soft and translucent, are stacked and topped with mozzarella and marinara sauce. That a block of lasagna is one of your side options solves the conundrum of which to order but not where you will nap later. The lasagna, too, carries old-school, pizza parlor cred, with thick, curly edged noodles, ricotta, an all-day-big-pot meat sauce and

mozzarella under a ladle of still more red sauce. Though it bears the saucy, meaty markers of the dish’s evolution stateside, its mail-order DNA test kit would skew toward Southern Italy, with nary a spoonful of northern béchamel in sight. In those layers lies the comfort of tradition. And sauce. Lots of red sauce.
Sandwich craft After months and years of wishing, manifesting, prayer and vision boards failed to yield a deli within medium-heel walking distance of the NCJ offices, I was about to move on to witchcraft. Then Delish on 5th (440 F St.) opened up in Old Town with its case full of cured meats and cheeses, for which I’m deeply grateful, as spellwork looks like a steep learning curve. The setup — fancy kitchen shop on one side, fancy baked goods and sandwiches on the other — is a little more bespoke than I was going for but, in fairness, I did only skim The Secret. The hot pastrami sandwich ($11), for example, comes on a crusty, Dijon-swiped hunk of house baked ciabatta and grilled until the Swiss cheese bubbles down over the sides. The meat itself has some smoke and pepper to it, but its fall-apart texture and edge-browned fat is more akin to a

roasted brisket than what you’d normally order on rye or in a Rueben. This is not in any way a bad thing. Likewise the handful of tart giardiniera, with its pickled carrots, cauliflower and green beans in place of the usual dill spear. The ciabatta shows up again panini-pressed around the Muffuletta ($11), rather than the big, soft, round Italian namesake loaf the traditional New Orleans sandwich is made on. It is, however, generously layered with salami, ham, provolone, tangy olive tapenade and Dijon, which you might ask to go easy on if you’re not a fan of strong mustard. The giardiniera stays on the side and the mortadella stays on the bench, but, departures from the standard recipe aside, it’s a meaty joy worth the napkins you’ll need. The sea salted chocolate chip cookies are marvelous but if you’ve got room, invest in a hefty wedge of cheesecake ($4.25). A pinky-thick graham cracker crust cradles the fluffy, creamy filling — listen as your fork makes its way through to the plate and fully appreciate the experience.
Fresh takes So long, Savory. Hola, Fregosos Comida Mexicana (1504 G St., Arcata). In November, Savory’s owners, who also own the Fregoso Market across from the Arcata North Coast Co-op, made the switch with a bright coat of paint, a fully Mexican menu and a new name in the same location across from Stars Hamburgers in Arcata’s Northtown. Those in thrall to the queso fresco-stuffed chile relleno served in a bub-
bling molcajete ($12) will be happy to learn it’s still on the menu, along with a side of homemade corn tortillas, whole pinto beans and saffron risotto. The Mason jars of house made horchata, with telltale sediment and deep vanilla and cinnamon flavor, deserve an equal following ($3.50). Branch out for the octopus and aguachile ($14), a bright tumble of seeded cucumbers, yellow tomatoes, radish, red onion, fresh jalapeño and cilantro, with thinly sliced octopus and shrimp in a chile lime marinade. It’s possibly the only salad you can lord over your companions in a Mexican restaurant. The aguachile also comes with a handful of crispy wontons, which you have missed at Chinese restaurants, whether or not you can admit it. It also leaves room for two desserts worth your gastronomic real estate. The tres leches cake ($6) is a light sponge soaked in its namesakes — condensed milk, evaporated milk and cream — and updated with a fresh mint syrup. Its polar opposite is the thick, alabaster flan ($6). You may marvel equally at its intense caramel flavor and the richness of the custard, which offers your spoon more resistance than the typical flan. And if you do order both desserts for yourself, I’m happy to report your server won’t blink. That is service. ● Share your Hum Plate tips with Jennifer Fumiko Cahill, arts and features editor at the Journal. Reach her at 442-1400, extension 320, or jennifer@ northcoastjournal.com.

his time of year, as many of us migrate to or from our points of origin, it’s time to consider Arcata’s biggest, newest and most noteworthy piece of public art about the experience of transit: the 256-foot-long, 27-foot-tall painting by Lucas Thornton, “Marvelous Mural of Marbled Murrelets,” sweeping across two sides of the Arcata Bay Crossing building at Samoa Boulevard and U.S. Highway 101. Arcata’s newest work of public housing at Arcata Bay Crossing turned a blank face to the highway from the time it was built in 2015 until this summer, when the combined efforts of the Center for Biological Diversity, the Footprint Foundation, the city of Arcata and individual community members made it possible to put a bird on it. The subject is the marbled murrelet, an endangered species that haunts this stretch of the redwood coast. The artist, also locally based, is Lucas Thornton, who got his start in Duane Flatmo’s Rural Burl Mural Bureau. Thornton painted murrelets from a “bird’s eye” perspective, placing them against an aerial view of Humboldt Bay as seen from Fickle Hill, based on his plein-air oil study. Choice of bird matters a lot in an ornithologically sophisticated town like Arcata. Here, it was inspired. The sel-
18 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019 • northcoastjournal.com
dom-seen marbled murrelet is a dark, subtly patterned, densely feathered little bird whose adaptation for its baroque niche in the ecosystem is hyper-specialized and heartbreakingly perfect; heartbreaking because the unique way this bellwether species evolved now makes it highly vulnerable. While close relatives like murres nest on sea stacks and spend essentially the entirety of their lives in the ocean, the murrelet is unique: a fisher of the open ocean that has evolved to nest exclusively in the canopies of mature redwood forests, in groves where the trees are at least 200 years old. The territory where marbled murrelets could possibly exist was never vast; what with warming oceans, depleted fisheries, ongoing logging, deforestation and habitat loss, there is no reason to doubt the future will become more difficult for humans and murrelets alike. We should care about the murrelet, in other words, and Thornton’s composition makes it easy to do that by making the most of the wall’s immensity. Dark redwood forest along the northerly part of the wall nearest the highway gives way to the shining surface of Humboldt Bay as the eye moves south. The scene is suffused in a light that suggests morning (no easy feat at this colossal scale). The murrelets, winging their miraculous way
from the redwood forest to the Pacific, are unobtrusive — especially when you consider that the audience for this mural is a challenged one, consisting almost exclusively of multitasking drivers merging with highway traffic or navigating the exit ramp. (Highly visible from the highway, the mural is by no means easy for a pedestrian to view in its entirety). Since July, many motorists must have glimpsed a shining expanse of painted ocean in their peripheral vision and wondered about the murrelets’ exact whereabouts. I was certainly in that camp. Details, including the speckled murrelet chick charmingly nestled in the redwood canopy, continued surprising me for several weeks under a commuter’s viewing regimen. Not that I’m complaining — as any birder can attest, often the birds you remember best are the ones that are hardest to see. ● “Marvelous Mural of Marbled Murrelets” can be seen from the overpass and exit ramps at Samoa Boulevard and U.S. Highway 101 (but not from a static vantage point and never for very long).

ho needs an intro in these short, wet and cold days? By the time I get started the sun will have come and gone and we will all be mocked heartily by the massive frozen charioteers who pull the night across the sky at the bored whim of the gods. (Note: I have never actually taken an astronomy course and I apologize for my childlike understanding of the cosmos.) Anyway, get out and do it. These are long nights and we must own them occasionally lest they pummel us into submission every night with the promise of a lazy early bed. Viva.
March and the Months gets the band together again as young ingenue March Adstrum takes a vacation break from college to kick out the jams in her hometown with friends and family at the Arcata Playhouse tonight at 8 p.m. ($5-$20 sliding scale). Expect covers and originals all woven together with the fine glossy threads of vintage glam and psychedelia. Over in Eureka at the same hour, you can catch the Latin rock ‘n’ roll champs of East L.A. for four decades running when Los Lobos takes the stage at the Arkley Center for the Performing Arts. It’s unlikely that I will cough up the needed skrill to see Mr. David Hidalgo and company jam in The Neighborhood with my winter budget being what it is, but I suggest that you do so if you can float the $66 ticket because these chaps aren’t getting any younger and they remain one of the last true organic roots bands in our troubled nation. As for me, I’ve got a VHS copy of La Bamba at home I’ve been meaning to watch so I’ll be all right.
Multi-instrumentalists and identical twins Adam and David Moss hail from Brooklyn by way of Peoria, Illinois. Together they make up The Brother Brothers and play a noir style of folk and bluegrass that draws on the twilit chapters of the Great American Songbook. The music is
The Brother Brothers play the Old Steeple on Friday, Jan. 11 at 7:30 p.m. Photo by Justin Camerer, courtesy of the artists
tight and technically advanced, but it’s the feeling, that beautiful plangent feeling, that makes these brothers so special. Come see what I am talking about at The Old Steeple tonight at 7:30 p.m. ($25). Catch the twins on stage and then, weather permitting, allow yourself a peek at the Gemini constellation of Castor and Pollux on the drive home because this is a great time to do so.
I am old fashioned in my wrestling tastes, having formed and left all of my aesthetics back in the late 1980s when I was a very small child and therefore at the peak of my development as far as appreciation of the sport goes. Hulk Hogan ruled over a menagerie filled with the likes of Jake the Snake, Ric Flair, Andre the Giant and the Iron Sheik, while Jesse “The Body” Ventura was a B-lister at best and much better remembered as a color commentator. Suffice it to say, the seeds are planted deep for wrestling fanboy-dom but have thus far yielded no grain. Perhaps that will change for me tonight when Oakland-based wrestling troupe Hoodslam takes over the Eureka Municipal Auditorium at 8 p.m. The unorthodox and free-wheeling wildmen will shake, rattle and roll the turnbuckles in a tailor-made Humboldt production with Savage Henry called Emerald Triangula. Broseph Joe Brody presides over the night with live music provided by the Hoodslam Band at 8 p.m. (21+, $20).
Eteraz is a relentless and brilliant hardcore act from Olympia and Seattle up in the northernmost state in our Pacific Northwest triad. With an expansive d-beat and reverb sound and lyrics in English and Farsi, there is nothing but a new and glorious mutant in this band. RampArt is the host tonight at 8 p.m. and local support will be provided by Dead Drift, Grumpus and Grimweepers. At $5 this show is an absolute steal.
The Outer Space has a good one going
on tonight at 7 p.m. when Sarchasm makes the drive up from the Bay Area to bang the gong in the temple of alt-punk (sliding scale $6-20). Daniel. (yes, with a period at the end that forces Google docs to capitalize the next word and I am sure the preciousness is worth the annoyance but if they did it on purpose to troll then bravo, actually) provides a local taste of contemporary folk, while Blood Hunny does what it does best, namely playing a fine set.
Tristan Norton tunes up the guitars over at Phatsy Kline’s tonight at 8 p.m. to deliver a free set of carefully chosen pieces by the fine likes of John Fahey, John Coltrane, Hank Williams, Blind Willie Johnson and more. If playing older music is more your taste, hit up the Logger Bar at the same hour for the Old Time Music Jam, which so happens to be another free joint.

Hey, maybe strap this on for size: Richards’ Goat has a trivia night at 8 p.m. that I have been hearing quite a lot of good things about from my more competitive friends on the specialized information circuit. It’s only a two-drink minimum and every sitcom memory I have suggests that trivia nights are full of fun and unruly diversion. I once helmed a team in the fifth grade called The Impalers after my then-recent infatuation with Vlad Dracula. Anyway, grab some sharp friends and test your mettle. l

COMEDY Sunset Boulevard
In Sunset Boulevard (1950), Gloria Swanson plays an aging silent film queen, forgotten by Hollywood, who refuses to believe her star has dimmed. Revel in this critically acclaimed masterpiece, also starring William Holden, by director Billy Wilder at Friday Night Noir on Friday, Jan. 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Eureka Theater ($5). Popcorn, snacks and cocktails befitting a goddess available in the lobby.
Based on poems by Historic Blue Ox Mill founder Eric Hollenbeck and written by playwright James McManus, Radioman plays Jan. 10-12 and Jan. 17-19 at 8 p.m., with two Sunday matinees on Jan. 13 and 20 at 2 p.m. at Dell’Arte’s Carlo Theatre ($35 opening night reception, $15-$20 rest of run). Directed by Michael Fields and Roman Sanchez.
March and the Months bring their genre-defying It’s Just a Whim rock show to the Arcata Playhouse on Thursday, Jan. 10 at 8 p.m. ($5-20 sliding scale). Expect high energy from March Adstrum on vocals/ guitar/keyboards, Rob Diggins on synth violin/cornet, Joli Einem on electric bass, Fiona Shaughnessy on vocals and Gabe LuBowe on drums.
Are you the kind of sci-fi/action film fan that goes along with the whole suspension-of-disbelief thrill ride or do the maddening missteps of science/tech/logic elicit a passionate “Come on!” from you? Your friends may roll their eyes but we get it. If you’re curious whether some harebrained Hollywood theory could actually work, there are experts who can tell you yes or no. Thanks to a grant from the Coolidge Corner Theatre Foundation and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, there’s a nifty project called “Science on Screen” that pairs feature films with experts in the fields of science, tech, engineering and mathematics. The Eureka Theater is one of hundreds hosting this series and it kicks off by bringing down the science hammer with Avengers: Infinity War (2018) — featuring a nanobiotechnology discussion with Frank Cappuccio — on Thursday, Jan. 17 at 7 p.m. ($5). Other films in the series include Tank Girl (1995) and apocalyptic technologies w/Lonny Grafman on Feb. 21, National Week of Science on Screen, a yet-to-be-named film on March 21, Tremors (1990) and shaky ground discussion with Lori Dengler on April 18, Jurassic Park (1993) and “how to clone a dinosaur” with Sam Del Campo on May 16, and Hackers (1995) and coding with Brian Behlendorf on June 22. Right in line with that series is Dumb Movies with Smart People over at the Humboldt County Library. Take a seat with other smarties for a showing of The Core (2003), a hot mess about scientists planning to drill to the center of the earth to set off nuclear bombs to get it spinning again. Seismologist/geologist/smart person Lori Dengler hosts this one, too, on Saturday, Jan. 12 at 1 p.m. (free). On Saturday, Feb. 9 at 1 p.m. catch feverish Outbreak (1995) — filmed right here in Humboldt County, with Ferndale as a contagion hotspot — with Ron Largusa. —Kali Cozyris

30 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019 • northcoastjournal.com
In the gradual but somehow instantaneous acceleration of time, wherein it seems to expand and contract with no regard for our pleas and protestations, I have found my movie-nerdiness largely subsumed by what I’m told is “real life.” Going back to the VHS/DVD rental days, I would stage my weekends with a dozen hours of esoterica from around the world, exploring history and genre, taking in the “important” contributions to cinema along with the elevated trash I hold so dear. When Netflix hit the scene, it became an almost too convenient extension of the same impulse: As soon as I had a membership, I top-loaded my queue with 150 or so deep cuts, vital classics and rough-cut gems — stuff one is supposed to see. My Netflix queue become something of a totem, a symbolic demarcation of the sapping of psychic energy that so often attends “growing up.” As the realities of full-time employment set in, the Fassbinders and Cocteaus and Powell & Pressburgers started to slide farther down the list, displaced by whatever contemporary, low-commitment entertainment happened to be of the moment. Concurrently, theaters began shying from limited-releases and fell into line with the tent-pole machine. Streaming became the norm but by then the emotional exhaustion of the day generally left room for short-attention entertainments that wouldn’t overtax my already depleted reserves — serialized television, in other words. It’s a sad state of affairs I’ve been remiss in rectifying. And so I’m thankful to the kind proprietors of the refreshed and rejuvenated Minor Theater and of the Miniplex, where I had the opportunity to be challenged by Hirokazu Koreeda’s Shoplifters and Chang-Dong Lee’s Burning. SHOPLIFTERS. Within the orchestrated chaos of contemporary Tokyo, the pack-ofstrays Shibata family work together to stay together. Packed into grandmother Hatsue’s (Kirin Kiki) too-small house are Osamu (Lily Franky) and Nobuyo (Sakura Andô), ostensible dad and mom to teenaged Aki (Mayu Matsuoka) and pre-adolescent Shota (Jyo Kairi). Osamu works part-time as an unskilled laborer on building sites, Nobuyo in some sort of quasi-Dickensian laundry facility. Aki does her thing in a peep show booth. It’s a struggle to keep everybody fed and clothed, and so Osamu has taken on Shota as an apprentice shoplifter. After a successful raid
in the opening moments of the movie, the two come across a 5-year-old neighbor girl alone and cold and hungry in the dooryard of her house. Together they decide to take her home with them to get fed and warm. Soon enough, they’ve incorporated the little girl, who they’ve named Yuri (Miyu Sasaki), into their family, despite the ongoing news coverage of her missing persons case. As days turn into months into seasons, we come to a sort of inchoate understanding that the Shibata household dynamic is more complicated than it may seem. Koreeda, with whose work I am woefully inexperienced, sets out for and achieves a level of intimacy here with both story and character that are rarely even approached in contemporary cinema. With deceptively delicate camera work, he puts us deep inside the lives of the Shibotas while allowing them to reveal themselves. It’s a masterful example of showing without telling, of editing both before and after the cameras have rolled. In a gradual, immersive transition, we learn what we need to about these characters; in a test of our preconceptions we learn that they are all hiding something and yet also being completely honest. That’s the true achievement here, one that might be missed for lack of patience. Koreeda and his actors present a fiction that is suffused with the stuff of real life, the little crimes we all may or may not commit daily to make life livable, the lies that keep the truth intact. It’s a remarkable and remarkably controlled work that, if perhaps too long, rewards the watching. R. 121M. MINOR. BURNING. Had I not known this was adapted from the Haruki Murakami short story “Barn Burning” from his 1993 collection The Elephant Vanishes, I might not have identified it as such. But that is the beauty of an effective adaptation: It makes the written word something else and new, giving life to it as imagined by a reader who doesn’t share the author’s brain. But with Murakami in mind, I noticed elements of his style throughout. And while Lee’s vision of the story has even more negative space, silence and darkness than I would usually attribute to the author, it is an all the more satisfying — if troubling — adaptation for it. In the course of an unremarkable workday, Jong-su (Ah-In Yoo) encounters a girl from his countryside childhood, Hae-Mi (Jong-seu Jun). She’s cute and flirty, and they

Hey, girl. You’re on my zombie apocalypse team. Burning
strike up a conversation. After a couple of dates, Jong-su is impossibly smitten and Hae-Mi is leaving the country. She asks him to take care of her cat while she vacations in Africa. All well and good, but when she returns, it’s with a handsome, wealthy stranger named Ben (Steven Yeun). This is complicated enough to make Jong-su’s life difficult, let alone the fact that he must tend the family farm while his angry father awaits trial on assault charges. But he also doesn’t think Ben is quite what he seems and the majority of the movie is charged with a silent sense of doubt and dread that must inevitably find voice. There are some exquisitely beautiful images within Burning but it is mostly defined by austere style and its internal approach to the story and its characters. The focus of the narrative is exceptionally narrow but we are offered only rare insights into the internal lives of the characters. In high Murakami fashion, absence and not knowing are defining characteristics, elevated here almost to horror-genre levels. While the movie is a at times almost unbearably slow to build, the climax offers a perfect, terrible, wordless payoff. NR. 148M. MINIPLEX. — John J.

loses its raft, it will sink and die. Other hazards include being eaten by juvenile sea turtles. The violet snail’s prey include floating “jellies,” such as the Portuguese man-o-war and by-the-wind sailors. As you may know, the Portuguese man-o-war has a powerful sting, so that’s why I said the snail’s prey could take down a human. The Type 2 person says, “You’re changing your story! That totally verifies the snailtrail conspiracy!” No, that’s simply a clarification following some harmless hyperbole. It doesn’t prove anything. The Type 3 person says, “Do they ever wash up nearby so we might see some for ourselves?” Yes. In April of 2015 I found dozens washed up near the Mad River mouth, mixed in with stranded by-the-wind sailors. Keep an eye out for them whenever you see those blue jelly-like things washed up. “I knew it,” says the Type 2 person. “The blue jelly things are part of the conspiracy, too. Your overlords are obviously trying to cover up their snailtrail mind control plot by concocting a series of lies involving many high-level politicians, the military and a fake super-snail that can supposedly save us from our enemies if we’ll only look out to sea instead of right under our own noses! Your so-called column in this so-called paper has been advancing this agenda in coded language all along. Plus, plus … Fukushima!” Wow, Type 2 person ... You are right — it’s an inside job. You’d better post a link to this story on your social media before it’s too late. And tell your followers to click “like” or else, um, my handlers will add fluoride to the world’s supply of flu vaccines. I turn to wink at the Type 3 people but they already went to the beach. ● Biologist Mike Kelly writes science-based satire as M. Sid Kelly on Amazon.

The violet-shelled Janthina snail.
CROSSWORD by David Levinson Wilk
By Mike Kelly
hen it comes to snail appreciation, there are three types of people. Type 1 people display no curiosity about snails and don’t want to learn anything new anyway. Fortunately, these shit-for-brains wouldn’t read this newspaper, so I haven’t offended anyone yet. Type 2 people are snail-curious and may actively seek information about snails but they’ll only accept information that supports what they already believe. Fortunately, nobody places themselves in this category, so I still haven’t offended anyone. Type 3 people are also curious snail information seekers but they typically use objective reality as the basis for their beliefs. These people go without bias to wherever snail science takes them. So, let’s see what happens when Type 2s and 3s are presented with hitherto unknown radical snail facts. Everyone knows that snails crawl along the forest floor, on the bottom of a tide pool or through gardens. They always ride a trail of slime, munching on plants or gunk as they cruise along. So far both parties are comfortable. But now I tell them that there are beautiful carnivorous snails that build rafts and drift around on the high seas hunting their prey — prey that could take down a human. The Type 2 person says, “I’ve never heard of that before, so snails don’t do it. You’re obviously a shill for the Snailluminati. Your lies prove that the shadow government covertly places chemicals in snailtrails to control the minds of the workers!” But the Type 3 person says, “Beautiful rafting predatory snails? Tell me more!” Thank you, open-minded Type 3 person. It’s called the violet snail. There are several species around the world that are normally found in tropical and subtropical waters. Its genus name is Janthina, which conveniently means “violet colored.” Its raft is made of fortified bubbles that the snail holds onto with its foot. If the snail

Free Will Astrology
Week of Jan. 10, 2019 By Rob Brezsny
Homework: I’ve gathered all of the long-term, big-picture horoscopes I wrote for you: https://bit.ly/YourGloriousStory2019
firstname.lastname@example.org ARIES (March 21-April 19): Computer-generated special effects used in the 1993 film Jurassic Park may seem modest to us now but at the time they were revolutionary. Inspired by the new possibilities revealed, filmmakers like Stanley Kubrick, George Lucas and Peter Jackson launched new projects they had previously thought to be beyond their ability to create. In 2019, I urge you to go in quest of your personal equivalent of Jurassic Park’s pioneering breakthroughs. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you may be able to find help and resources that enable you to get more serious about seemingly unfeasible or impractical dreams. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I’m a big proponent of authenticity. I almost always advise you to be yourself with bold candor and unapologetic panache. Speak the truth about your deepest values and clearest perceptions. Be an expert about what really moves you and devote yourself passionately to your relationships with what really moves you. But there is one exception to this approach. Sometimes it’s wise to employ the “fake it until you make it” strategy: to pretend you are what you want to be with such conviction that you ultimately become what you want to be. I suspect now is one of those times for you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The students’ dining hall at Michigan State University serves gobs of mayonnaise. But in late 2016, a problem arose when 1250 gallons of the stuff became rancid. Rather than simply throw it away, the school’s Sustainability Officer came up with a brilliant solution: load it into a machine called an anaerobic digester, which turns biodegradable waste into energy. Problem solved! The transformed rot provided electricity for parts of the campus. I recommend you regard this story as a metaphor for your own use. Is there anything in your life that has begun to decay or lose its usefulness? If so, can you convert it into a source of power? CANCER (June 21-July 22): If you grow vegetables, fruits and grains on an acre of land, you can feed twelve people. If you use that acre to raise meat-producing animals, you’ll feed at most four people. But to produce the meat, you’ll need at least four times more water and twenty times more electric power than you would if you grew the plants. I offer this as a useful metaphor for you to consider in the coming months. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you should prioritize efficiency and value. What will provide you with the most bang for your bucks? What’s the wisest use of your resources? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Modern kids don’t spend much time playing outside. They have fun in natural environments only half as often as their parents did while growing up. In fact, the average child spends less time in the open air than prison inmates. And today’s unjailed adults get even less exposure to the elements. But I hope you will avoid that fate in 2019. According to my astrological estimates, you need to allocate more than the usual amount of time to feeling the sun and wind and sky. Not just because it’s key to your physical health, but also because many of your best ideas and decisions are likely to emerge while you’re outdoors. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): NASA landed its robotic explorer Opportunity on Mars in January of 2004. The craft’s mission, which was supposed to last for 92 days, began by taking photos and collecting soil samples. More than 14 years later, the hardy machine was still in operation, continuing to send data back to Earth. It far outlived its designed lifespan. I foresee you being able to generate a comparable marvel in 2019, Virgo: a stalwart resource or influence or situation that will have more staying power than you could imagine. What could it be? LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In 1557, Welsh mathematician Robert Recorde invented the equals sign (=). Historical records don’t
tell us when he was born so we don’t know his astrological sign. But I’m guessing he was a Libra. Is there any tribe more skillful at finding correlations, establishing equivalencies and creating reciprocity? In all the zodiac, who is best at crafting righteous proportions and uniting apparent opposites? Who is the genius of balance? In the coming months, my friend, I suspect you will be even more adept at these fine arts than you usually are. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): There’s a modest, one-story office building at 1209 North Orange Street in Wilmington, Delaware. More than 285,000 businesses from all over the U.S. claim it as their address. Why? Because the state of Delaware has advantageous tax laws that enable those businesses to save massive amounts of money. Other buildings in Delaware house thousands of additional corporations. It’s all legal. No one gets in trouble for it. I bring this to your attention in the hope of inspiring you to hunt for comparable situations: ethical loopholes and workarounds that will provide you with extra benefits and advantages. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): People in the Solomon Islands buy many goods and services with regular currency, but also use other symbols of worth to pay for important cultural events like staging weddings and settling disputes and expressing apologies. These alternate forms of currency include the teeth of flying foxes, which are the local species of bat. In that spirit and in accordance with current astrological omens, I’d love to see you expand your sense of what constitutes your wealth. In addition to material possessions and funds in the bank, what else makes you valuable? In what other ways do you measure your potency, your vitality, your merit? It’s a favorable time to take inventory. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In 1984, singer-songwriter John Fogerty released a new album whose lead single was “The Old Man Down the Road.” It sold well. But trouble arose soon afterward when Fogerty’s former record company sued him in court, claiming he stole the idea for “The Old Man Down the Road” from “Run Through the Jungle.” That was a tune Fogerty himself had written and recorded in 1970 while playing with the band Creedence Clearwater Revival. The legal process took a while but he was ultimately vindicated. No, the courts declared, he didn’t plagiarize himself, even though there were some similarities between the two songs. In this spirit, I authorize you to borrow from a good thing you did in the past as you create a new good thing in the future. There’ll be no hell to pay if you engage in a bit of self-plagiarism. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book is a collection of fables that take place in India. Three movies have been made based on it. All of them portray the giant talking snake named Kaa as an adversary to the hero Mowgli. But in Kipling’s original stories, Kaa is a benevolent ally and teacher. I bring this to your attention to provide context for a certain situation in your life. Is there an influence with a metaphorical resemblance to Kaa: misinterpreted by some people but actually quite supportive and nourishing to you? If so, I suggest you intensify your appreciation for it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Virginia Woolf thought that her Piscean lover Vita Sackville-West was a decent writer but a bit too fluid and effortless. Self-expression was so natural to Sackville-West that she didn’t work hard enough to hone her craft and discipline her flow. In a letter, Woolf wrote, “I think there are odder, deeper, more angular thoughts in your mind than you have yet let come out.” I invite you to meditate on the possibility that Woolf’s advice might be useful in 2019. Is there anything in your skill set that comes so easily that you haven’t fully ripened it? If so, develop it with more focused intention. ●

Meet Our Neighbors: Compass Carpentry Shawn Herlihy and Ryan Barlow started Compass Carpentry about 10 years ago after the two met at College of the Redwoods. “Ryan and I met at CR when we were taking some carpentry and construction classes. We both have a passion for remodeling and turning the non-functional into functional. From there, Compass Carpentry was born,” explains Shawn. Shawn, Ryan, and employee Laura Morgan provide Humboldt County with the highest level of expertise, care, and attention to detail when working on a project. “We do all types of carpentry and general contractor jobs, but we really love doing historical projects,” explain Shawn and Ryan. “We have done a lot of work on the outside of the historic Del Arte building and we have worked on many of the Eureka Victorians.” Shawn, originally from the Oakland area, moved to Humboldt to attend Humboldt State. Now married with two children, Shawn enjoys spending his free time with his family. Ryan moved to Humboldt in 2005 from North Carolina to attend college. When he is not at work, he enjoys playing in various local bands. Compass Carpentry is always taking new clients, so whether you are in need of a new addition or have a historical remodel that needs work, give the guys at Compass Carpentry a call at 499-6381 and experience their top level service for yourself.
