‘Shameful’ Editor: In October of 2019, the State of California enacted Senate Bill 313, a circus ban preventing wild animals such as tigers, lions, elephants, bears and monkeys from being used in circuses. However, this law did not ban the use and abuse of these same animals for publicity stunts and other inhumane “acts” for human amusement. This week, Tag (a Kodiak bear) was “hired” by John Cox for a publicity stunt in Sacramento. [Mr. Cox is a governor candidate trying to replace Newsom (Democrats Have Newsom’s Back as Recall Campaign Ramps Up,” posted March 17).] In 2012, Tag was born in captivity at a private zoo in Ohio. He has been used for movies and is now being used as a side show for a desperate man. This past Tuesday, Tag was placed on hot asphalt with a thin, inadequate hot wire separating him from the human audience during a publicity stunt in Sacramento. He was thrown chicken and other items to munch on while Cox spoke. Mr. Cox plans to continue to drag Tag around the state for attention. Cox’s plans include a visit to The French Laundry in Yountville this week. I seriously doubt he has obtained the proper permits for this or any event. Also, that wire will not contain an agitated bear. This is a threat to public safety and the safety of Tag, the bear. Is this how we treat animals in California? This is animal abuse. This is shameful. This must be stopped. Mara Parker, Trinidad

‘A Sign’ Editor: If the members of the Pentecostal church in Eureka, and the greater religious community in general, have been waiting for a sign from God as to the need to get vaccinated and practice safe distancing and mask wearing, then, prayers answered! The 40-plus cases of COVID-19 they brought home to Humboldt County, which have been traced back to the super-spreader event to the Youth Gathering at Christian Life Center in Stockton (“Eureka Church Linked to Surge in COVID-19 Cases,” April 23), may not be a burning bush, but they could well ignite a surge of COVID cases in our community.

Klamath” by Jessica Fu contains a factual error. It states: “Every year, a coalition of tribal representatives, fishermen, and community and environmental advocates sets catch limits on salmon in the region in order to maintain longterm viability.” While the groups mentioned participate in the process, catch limits are recommended by the Pacific Fisheries Management Council, a federal advisory committee, and set by the U.S. Terry Torgerson Department of Commerce. By court decree and settled law, those tribes with treaty or reserve fishing rights are allocated 50 percent of the allowable catch of each stock. Individual tribes then allocate their share among members. State fish and wildlife agencies allocate 50 percent of the allowable catch for each stock to sport and commercial, ocean and in-river fisheries. Otherwise, the article is excellent. It rightly highlights the only solution to recurring and deepening water conflicts by quoting professor Turlock: “There’s got to be some retreat in the Klamath Basin ... I think it’s pretty clear there’s not enough water to support the existing level of agriculture.” We, the people of the Klamath River Basin, don’t need another backroom deal that takes years to negotiate and keeps too much water with white irrigators. What we need is to reduce irrigation water demand in a fair, equitable and smart manner. That means a basin-wide program that purchases water rights from willing sellers and dedicates that water to in-stream use. It is time for key senators and representatives to step up and lead the way. Disaster assistance, while it is appreciated, is not enough. Real leadership will deliver real solutions. Felice Pace, Klamath

Correction The article headlined “Sharing the Frybread Love” in the May 6, 2021, edition of the North Coast Journal misspelled the name of Beck’s Bakery owner Rhonda Wiedenbeck. The Journal regrets the error.

Clarification The article headlined “This is a Race” in the April 29, 2021, edition of the North Coast Journal used vaccination figures from the Humboldt County COVID-19 dashboard, which pulls data from the CAIRs reporting system, indicating Hoopa had one of the lowest per-capita vaccination rates in the county. However, data provided by the tribe after the story’s publication indicate approximately 2,608 vaccine doses have been administered in Hoopa, an average of about 0.75 per resident, which would be one of the higher rates in the county. The Journal regrets any confusion.l

A ‘shipping issue’ led to a scramble to find vaccine, ultimately leaving Humboldt with a surplus

More power, from a place you can trust.

W

hen a handful of officials at the forefront of the county’s COVID-19 response sat down to a virtual press conference May 5, they made clear Humboldt County was at an inflection point. In sharp contrast to the rest of the state, local case numbers were ballooning, with the county having confirmed 267 new cases — and a rash of hospitalizations — over the previous 14 days as the state continued preparations to lift most pandemic restrictions and reopen its economy by mid June. “We’re still very much in the middle of this pandemic response,” cautioned Public Health Director Michele Stephens. “I think we’re all feeling really hopeful that the vaccine is here and we’re getting shots in arms — it’s certainly something we’ve all been waiting for. … But we’re not through this yet. We’re still seeing cases, we’re still seeing hospitalizations.” Health Officer Ian Hoffman followed up to say he’d seen a “change in the tide,” fueled by the arrival of the virus’ highly contagious B.1.1.7 variant on the North Coast, which sent case rates spiking. “We are headed into a time where the protections, public health protections, that we’ve had throughout the whole pandemic are being taken away,” Hoffman said, referring to loosening restrictions on business activities and gatherings. “The stay-at-home orders that were very strict in the beginning have continually loosened and will continue to loosen over time, so those protections won’t be there for people. The last protection we are going to have are the vaccine and masking.” A few minutes earlier, county Vaccine Task Force member Lindsey Mendez mentioned

the county had run into “a little bit of a shipping issue” with what had been projected to be an allocation of 6,600 vaccine doses from Blue Shield, the state’s third-party administrator that’s taken over vaccine allocation and delivery. Nearly 5,000 of those doses were slated to be put into arms at a series of mass clinics scheduled for residents expecting the second doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines that are necessary for full efficacy and protection against severe disease and death. As such, the week’s clinics represented a chance for the county to boost the number of fully vaccinated residents by 10 percent. A county press release later that day announced local officials had worked with the state to procure two trays of the Pfizer vaccine — 2,340 doses — from Fresno County, whose sheriff ’s department hastily flew them north. But the press release made no mention of the approximately 2,700 other doses that would be needed to fulfill the week’s planned clinics, nor the all-hands-ondeck effort unfolding behind the scenes to find them. Megan Montgomery, a Public Health program coordinator who serves as the MyTurn Unit Leader for the county’s COVID response, said the problem arose with a change to the ordering process under Blue Shield that created confusion. “The outcome of this confusion is they thought we didn’t want our vaccine, when we in fact wanted it shipped to St. Joseph Hospital,” Montgomery said, adding that when the misunderstanding became apparent, Blue Shield indicated it would make good on the shipment by the weekend’s clinics.

NEWS Continued from page 9

The two trays of Pfizer vaccine offered up through Sierra Pacific Orthopedic in Fresno — would be enough to make it through planned weekday clinics with a bit of rescheduling, but thousands of additional doses would be needed to make good on weekend appointments. Adding urgency to the situation was the fact that these were scheduled second doses, which have to be given within a specific number of days of the first dose or there isn’t clear evidence of efficacy, Montgomery said. And officials are aware that any additional barriers — like having to reschedule set appointments or cancel clinics — makes it more likely some people won’t follow up on getting their second doses. “We do all we can to really honor those appointments whenever possible,” Montgomery said. “We’re really committed to delivering those second doses to our community and it’s really important for us to be accountable to our community in that way.” Montgomery said Blue Shield indicated it would make good on the waylaid shipment by the end of the week but there were “a lot of different actors” involved and the company wasn’t able to provide local officials with tracking numbers to confirm the doses were on their way. “We reached a point where the health department decided to pivot and look at some of those other partners,” Montgomery said, adding that officials then worked through the third-party administrator to find any other counties or facilities that may have available doses. St. Joseph Health, which had gotten its own independent vaccine supply, had enough Moderna doses on hand to meet the county’s demand, so the focus was on Pfizer. Public Health officials heard Mee Memorial Healthcare System in Monterey County might have two trays of Pfizer available, so they made the call. “When we contacted them, it turned out they actually had four that they offered us,” Montgomery said. The challenge then was getting those doses 380 miles north while meeting cold-chain storage and chain of custody requirements. There wasn’t enough time to work with FedEx or the U.S. Postal Service Montgomery said, so officials called the California Department of Public Health, which agreed to provide ground transportation. Ultimately, the county was able to meet all scheduled appointments through the weekend with minimal disruptions. “It was, I think, really successful,” Montgomery said. And the Blue Shield shipment ultimately showed up, too, leaving the county extremely well poised to meet vaccine demand moving forward. Even after taking into account scheduled second-dose vaccine clinics through May 24, Montgomery said the coun-

ty currently has a stockpile of more than 6,000 doses on hand. “This makes sure that we definitely have the supply that we need,” she said, adding that the timing is especially fortuitous with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention expected to allow states to begin vaccinating 12 to 15 year olds with the Pfizer vaccine as early as May 13. While the miscommunication between Blue Shield and county Public Health that led to last week’s scramble is potentially concerning, Montgomery said she’s “feeling confident” that there’s a strong partnership moving forward. “In the meantime,” she added, “we have enough vaccine in-county to bridge any issues.” Looking back over the week’s events, Montgomery said the outcome is a testament to hard work, collaboration and partnership. “We really all worked together to make this possible,” she said. “It really speaks to how many people are working so hard to make sure everyone across California who wants to get vaccinated can.” It’s also worth noting that while Humboldt County was on the receiving end of vaccine generosity, it has been on the giving end before, having donated more than 1,000 doses of Pfizer vaccine to San Francisco last month. Back at the May 5 press conference, officials stressed that getting as many people vaccinated as possible is ultimately what will guide the path out of this pandemic, noting that the vaccine is being shown to almost entirely eliminate the risk of severe illness,

hospitalization and death. The county’s efforts are moving away from the larger mass vaccination clinics in population centers to focusing on mobile clinics in outlying areas and less traditional settings in an effort to reach residents with transportation issues and meet people where they are, and where they’re comfortable. Pfizer and Moderna have also begun the process of seeking full approval for their vaccines on top of the emergency use authorization currently in place. During the press conference, Hoffman said this would alleviate many of the restrictions that limit current vaccination efforts to “very select settings” and allow all doctor’s offices, medical clinics and pharmacies to begin offering them, enabling residents to have discussions directly with trusted providers and pharmacists before immediately getting the vaccines, if they choose. “This is the thing that helps keep our community safe,” Stephens said. “We’re going to continue to see COVID-19 cases. It’s here. It’s here to stay. But we’re going to get through it and we just want to continue to save lives and prevent severe disease. Vaccine is the way to do that. Just like we did with polio, just like we did with measles, just like we did with a lot of communicable disease that we don’t see anymore.” l Thadeus Greenson (he/him) is the Journal’s news editor.

Local Pediatrician Gets $5.1M Grant for Youth Crisis Facility

W

ith the help of the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Children’s Behavioral Health Division, Fortuna-based pediatrician Evan Buxbaum received a $5.1 million grant from the Investment in Mental Health Wellness Grant Program for Children to create the county’s first crisis stabilization and residential treatment center for youth. “Our children had been experiencing mental health crises even before COVID, but the events of the past year have made issues around adolescent mental health significantly worse,” Buxbaum said, adding that there are no residential in-patient care centers locally, meaning youth who have a mental health crisis get placed on a psychiatric hold in a local emergency room while they wait for a residential treatment center or psychiatric hospital bed to open up out of the county.  The crisis stabilization and residential treatment center will be owned and operated by a local nonprofit medical group created by Buxbaum and staffed by a

ON THE TABLE

Choose Your Own Oyster Fest Adventure Virtual, hybrid and in-person By Jennifer Fumiko Cahill jennifer@northcoastjournal.com

I

n the middle of planning for its annual Arcata Bay Oyster Festival last year, the folks at Arcata Main Street made the bold shift to a virtual event. With the March declaration of shelter in place and a spring of gradually climbing COVID-19 case numbers, most festivals here and across the country were canceling. But in the hope of aiding businesses hit hard by the pandemic, organizers leaned into burgeoning Zoom culture and put forth a seven-hour viewing party complete with pre-recorded interviews and mini documentaries, games and streaming live music, as well as the annual Best Oyster judging, all to be consumed at home, possibly with a pre-ordered takeout meal of local oysters and beverages. A year later, the terrain ahead is less alien but, despite the availability of vaccines, not much more certain. As Humboldt County’s COVID-19 case count climbs again and local health officials scramble to vaccinate as many people as possible, event organizers are taking a flexible approach, with three options for participation: totally virtual, hybrid and in-person. Nick Matthews, Arcata Main Street’s president, says last year the organization “really led the path in the way we did it and I’m proud of that.” Now, he says, knowing how a virtual program can increase the festival’s reach, it may become a permanent element. This year, while restrictions have loosened somewhat, he says, “Safety is imperative … so we just wanted to give choices to people.” Once again there will be the purely virtual experience of picking up to-go packages of food and drink from local producers and streaming live and pre-recorded events from home, similar to last year. People who choose the hybrid option can view the all-day entertainment from

participating restaurants that will also be showing it on the big screen and likely featuring oysters and other specials on the menu. The third option, which is still being finalized, will be in-person dining at reserved tables served by one of possibly four restaurants at a still-to-bedetermined outdoor location. “We’re just trying to do baby steps to get back on the plaza again,” says Matthews. Originally there were plans to set up dining on the Arcata Plaza but that proved difficult with the state’s guidelines for events, particularly in terms of limiting the number of people. Organizers hope in-person logistics and participating restaurants will be hammered out at a May 12 meeting and, once finalized, posted on Arcata Main Street’s website and at the Sunday Art Market. The choose-your-own-adventure format also gives participating businesses more options. Setting up a booth at the festival in 2017 cost $600, plus ingredients, mobile cooking equipment that’ll pass fire and health department inspections, and all-day staffing. This year, the event website pitches restaurants on the in-person, “household-only dining experience” with a subsidized plan. “We will cover a set amount of the cost of goods to produce a menu item. We ask that our participants bring their creativity, at least two servers and a lot of energy!” Even if they’re not up for setting up service at whatever location organizers choose or hosting the team of Best Oyster judges making the rounds, restaurants can still participate. They might opt to have their sauce or other oyster accompaniment featured in a takeout package or

host a hybrid viewing party. Matthews says the flexibility allows Arcata Main Street to include operations of all sizes and budgets, established and new. “The idea is really to promote the businesses, to get everything rolling again and allow people to see things are coming back,” he says. The three-pronged approach also means flexibility for organizers, should a further surge in positive COVID-19 cases put a damper on gathering. “Obviously we’re looking at anything that can happen,” says Matthews. Over the phone from the Arcata Main Street office, Shoshanna, hostess of the Fairy Festival and last year’s virtual Arcata Bay Oyster Festival, sounds giddy at the prospect of hosting another seven-hour online event. Even if COVID-19 numbers were to cancel the in-person and hybrid elements, “We will have some awesome bands and some awesome things. … It’ll still be a super awesome party but, man, I hope it doesn’t need to go that way,” she says with a peal of nervous laughter. So far, the lineup of bands streaming from the Arcata Playhouse stage includes The Latin Peppers, The Grateful Getdown, The Paula Jones Band and Amber Soul. Dave Silverbrand is slated to conduct the oyster calling contest at a Sunday Art Market, which Shoshanna hopes will ramp up Oyster Fest season and offer a taste of the events of yesteryear. “It seems like any kind of festival vibe we’ve had this year

have been at the farmers market.” Since she can’t offer mermaid photo ops with little ones from her usual half-shell throne, she’s also busy making kid’s craft kits with coloring sheets and art materials. “We’re trying to find some way for everyone to feel connected to it.” “The fest and events they go to this year might not be the same but they’re trying to get the essence of it,” says Shoshanna, who’s been impressed to see organizers for different events and organizations collaborating and getting creative, talking to each other about calendars and scheduling. “There’s been lots of creativity, lots of pivoting. I’m an improvisational dancer so I can handle that,” she says with a giggle. Her advice is to seize the joy and togetherness at whatever celebrations are available to us, even if they’re not like they used to be — to enjoy the outdoor markets and the virtual viewings, since we may not be “back to normal” in terms of events and performances for a while. It’s getting better, she says, “but it’s still gonna be weird.” l Jennifer Fumiko Cahill (she/her) is the arts and features editor at the Journal.

A

hike at Patrick’s Point State Park north of Trinidad always appeals to me, given park access to Agate Beach, Ceremonial Rock, Wedding Rock’s ocean viewpoint and the excellent Rim Trail. But if you go now, you can see work being done at Sumêg Village by a crew of Yurok Tribe members using traditional methods to restore the replica Native American structures and build a new women’s Dressing House. Seeing the beautiful, freshly split planks from old growth redwood logs and traditional construction methods (no nails) being used are my favorite parts of visiting the site. In addition, I had the privilege of meeting Yurok elder Walt Lara. To find Sumêg Village, walk on the signed trail, located to the right of the Visitor Center near the corner of the parking lot, to the recreated village and a native plant garden. Sumêg Village was not built at an actual archeological site in the park and was intended to be a demonstration project when it went up in 1989. To view the restoration work in progress, respect the yellow caution tape and avoid interfering with the construction activities and workers on site Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The last time any restoration activity occurred at Sumêg Village was in 2004, with a crew led by Yurok tribal member Axel Lingren, according to Greg Collins, supervisor of the Cultural Resources Program and district tribal liaison for the California State Parks’ North Coast Redwoods District. It was time for restoration work at Sumêg Village to begin again, said Collins, because years of contact with wet soil and lack of maintenance due to lack of budget had led to rotted posts and wall and ceiling planks. The new women’s Dressing House was part of the original Sumêg Village plan and is needed as a place for

women dancers to change into their ceremonial regalia. Collins hired 86-year-old Yurok tribal member Lara as master builder for the current restoration project. “I had participated in the original Sumêg Village construction that was led by Dewey George, Jimmy James and others,” said Lara. “With this current project, I’m trying to pass on what the old folks passed on to me. I was around 10 when I started learning how to build with traditional techniques, helping my grandfather with a small cabin at the mouth of the Klamath River.” Lara spent much of his working life in the woods working for local timber companies and the Yurok Tribe. At this year’s Humboldt State University commencement, Lara is slated to receive an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters during the College of Professional Studies ceremony. As master builder, Lara is passing on his knowledge of traditional materials and construction techniques to his much younger project team consisting of Yurok Tribe members from the Yurok Trail Crew (co-team leaders Michael Wolf and Napooi Shorty, Ro-tah Shorty, from Crescent City, and Owen Pretor, of Klamath, as well as senior park aide Jake Reed, of Hoopa and McKinleyville. “We hired Reed to add to the Yurok Trail Crew because he had apprentice experience working with Walt on a recent Weitchpec restoration project,” said Collins. “My favorite part of the project has been watching the boys do the work,” said Lara. “They’re a pretty good crew and it’s important that traditional people are here doing it.” The team began the 10-week project on March 29. The early start time each day has meant some travel challenges for the

Yurok Trail Crew members from Crescent City. “I’m up at 5 a.m. to eat breakfast and be picked up at 6 a.m. by our driver, Napooi,” said Michael Wolf. “We’ve also had delays at the Last Chance Grade slide along Highway 101, making it difficult some days to get here by 7:30 a.m.” A big problem emerged as the crew began looking at the old growth redwood logs that had been left for years on site for future restoration construction material. The logs had rotted significantly, and Lara and his crew had to salvage what planks they could while seeking a new supply of usable old growth redwood logs. Ultimately, usable logs for the project came from trees that had fallen across roads on park land in the North Coast Redwoods District, said Collins. “The best part of my job has been working with Walt,” said Collins. “It’s cool to see young Native Americans learning traditional skills from an elder. I’m amazed at how the tribal trail crew members learned very quickly to create split-board product out of the old growth logs.” “In addition, the good news is that Sumêg Village is now taking on a life of its own as a real cultural place with local Native Americans practicing their ceremonies here,” said Collins. The last part of the project includes restoration of the sweat house, located inside a locked fence that is accessible only for traditional use by tribal members. For more information about the history of Sumêg Village, you can watch a video about it on the Parks California website, www.parkscalifornia.org. l Mark Larson (he/him) is a retired Humboldt State University journalism professor and active freelance photographer who likes to walk.


FISHING THE NORTH COAST

Wind Continues to Hamper Offshore Angling By Kenny Priest

fishing@northcoastjournal.com

I

t’s been a very quiet start to the saltwater season, especially for boats looking to head offshore. The north wind has been prevalent for almost two weeks, letting up just enough to allow boats to venture outside Humboldt Bay for a couple days. Trinidad, Shelter Cove and Crescent City have faired slightly better in terms of days on the water based purely on proximity to the fishing grounds. But even those fleets have been hampered by horrible conditions. Conditions aren’t looking any better in the coming days. Thursday is marginal but then we’re right back to gale force winds through at least Saturday. In the meantime, anglers anxiously await the California halibut action to ramp up. A few are being caught but it hasn’t quite taken off. Bait is starting to show up in the bay, so we’re getting close to having another solid alternative when heading offshore isn’t an option.

Weekend marine forecast Winds will weaken slightly Wednesday and Thursday before strengthening back to gale force Friday and Saturday. Friday, north winds will be 10 to 20 knots with northwest waves 9 feet at nine seconds. Saturday’s forecast is calling for north winds 10 to 20 knots with northwest waves 10 feet at 10 seconds. Sunday’s prediction is looking better, with northwest winds 5 to 10 knots with northwest swells 7 feet at eight seconds. These conditions can and will change by the weekend.

Food for People is still hard at work at multiple locations providing food amid the pandemic. They serve 16,000+ people every month through countywide food pantries and hunger relief programs. The new facility will ensure every person in need can access nutritious foods and children, seniors, and families can connect with services that address the root causes of hunger and poverty. The facility will offer: 1. Added space to better serve countywide hunger needs and assist everyone in need, be it a personal emergency, pandemic, or natural disaster. 2. More healthy foods - with expanded cold storage Food for People can offer even more healthy, perishable foods and reduce food waste.

This project is vital now as Humboldt County struggles with high hunger rates – 21% of our county lives in poverty and the pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the need for food assistance.

Just thinkin’ bout cheesesteaks. Mare of Easttown

Easttown and Down By Jennifer Fumiko Cahill jennifer@northcoastjournal.com MARE OF EASTTOWN. Given the velocity at which I jettisoned myself from my own beat-down East Coast hometown full of salt-rusted cars and muddy yards, it’s a little surprising how drawn I am to the world of Easttown. The grim, fictional composite of Pennsylvania towns in which HBO’s detective miniseries takes place is south of the state line from where I grew up, but watching its disappointed characters drag themselves from high school gym to bar is like observing my imagined class reunion punishingly sober. Surely there are happy people in the Philadelphia suburbs, as there were in my hometown, but we won’t be visiting with them in Mare of Easttown. Instead, we’ll watch parents digest the loss of their children and children shrug at their rapidly shrinking prospects, all while swiping at each other’s wounds before a backdrop of comfortless Irish Catholicism and bare trees. Good times. Last week’s review of Sasquatch (“Homicide and Hominids,” May 6) touched on the way visiting documentarians seem hell bent on pumping up the spookiness of Humboldt County forests. Conversely, Netflix’s Virgin River sands down our local eccentricities to crank out a lightly pine-scented Hallmark romance in a flannel shirt (“Virgin River’s Washed-out Humboldt,” Jan. 23). Both are crimes of inauthenticity that might go unnoticed elsewhere. Perhaps someone born and

bred in the Philadelphia suburbs sees gaffes and carpetbaggers amid all the Wawa cups and cheesesteaks, or detects a slip in Kate Winslet’s accent. And maybe they’ll cringe to see small-town, white Pennsylvania entering a moment of vogue in Hollywood, like South Boston did in the late 1990s and early 2000s. But whatever set dressing or local details might be off, unbeknownst to me, Mare of Easttown feels true in its portrayal of humanity and challenging in the twin mysteries of the town’s crimes and its reluctant heroine. Detective Mare Sheehan (Winslet) peaked low and early, making a longshot basket at a high school game that earned her the nickname Miss Lady Hawk. We meet her downhill from that moment, taking a public hiding over the unsolved case of a missing girl, which Mare has mostly written off as hopeless and responds to by barking at the girl’s mother (Enid Graham), who’s undergoing chemotherapy. Similar finesse goes into squabbling with her mother (Jean Smart) and daughter (Angourie Rice), a one-night stand and coping with her ex-husband Frank’s (David Denman) engagement. In the wake of her son’s suicide, Mare and her mother are raising his little boy, though their custody is tenuous. The boy’s mother, Carrie (Sosie Bacon), a recovering drug addict, is getting her life together and wants him back. The murder of Erin (Cailee Spaeny), a teenage mother,

brings media attention and unwanted help from the county in the form of detective Colin Zabel (Evan Peters). And so the two begin the slog of investigating Erin’s life, interviewing teenagers, family members and the growing list of mostly men who might have killed one girl and/ or disappeared another. That we’re looking at the murder of a young woman (yes, of course, and found nearly naked) is hardly groundbreaking — the formula for detective dramas seems to be a ratio of 20 minutes of tough, capable women doing things for every 30 minutes of awful shit happening to women. (Pro-tip: Fast forwarding through scenes of women being brutalized can really move you through your streaming queue.) And the list of suspects reads like a bingo card: an angry father, an angry ex, his jealous girlfriend, priests, a teacher. Though I’m four episodes in and still casting about for my pick of the lineup. And unlike so many delightfully unlikeable fictional sleuths, Mare’s life isn’t poisoned by her dedication to her work or her myopia as she dives into the minds of criminals. In fact, she’s kind of terrible at her job, shrugging off a missing case, arresting a suspect publicly out of spite and worse every episode. Really it’s her life that’s poisoned her work, a life cracked by tragedy and her inability to cope with her own feelings and deal with them beyond attacking those around her. But she’s

not dumb — she knows people, knows her town and has a broad background in bad impulses and poor decisions, as she demonstrates by sagely telling her partner, “Trust me, teenage girls are fuckin’ sneaky.” While much has been made of Winslet’s accent, she embodies Mare with her low-grade frown and the hunch of her dun coat. Along with the intense, emotional scenes we expect Winslet to ace, when her living room window is smashed right behind Mare’s head, she’s utterly natural shaking off the broken glass to eat her sandwich and read her mail. As her mother, Smart is a goddamn treasure, at turns funny and angry, sometimes at the same thing. Peters is up to the daunting task of holding his own against Winslet and he’s the most convincing drunk I’ve seen on screen for years. Those performances pull us along as much as the mystery. What happened to the girls, missing and dead, is only part of the story, which is bound up in the fetishization of youth and potential, and the crushing disappointment when it’s spent or trapped with nowhere to go.

WASHED UP

Bull Kelp vs. Bullshit And what’s living in the holdfast By Mike Kelly

washedup@northcoastjournal.com

C

limate change-related shitstorms are not funny. So if you came here for humor this week, you’ll have better chances reading the crossword puzzle. I know someone will say, “But there’s no actual shit falling from the sky, so global warming is a hoax.” That’s fine, but I’ll even let doubters choose the type of shit and how deep they think the flood needs to get in order to convince them. Bat guano up to their ankles? Knee-deep donkey dung? A deluge of doggie doo-doo buoying their boobs? The shitstorm I’m referring to is the dramatic loss of bull kelp (Nereocystis luetkeana) along the California coast. In an issue of the North Coast Journal last month, you may have read the facts about the shit cascade of warm ocean conditions, seastar wasting disease, loss of a top predator, the explosion of sea urchins and the starvation of kelp-eating abalone, as well as efforts to restore bull kelp. If you missed it, that story is online (“Tools in the Toolbox,” April 15). But my job here is to celebrate the washing up of bull kelp on our local beaches. And I can tell you anecdotally that there isn’t as much washing up now as in past years. Before bull kelp washes up, it exists attached to the bottom by a structure called a holdfast. The holdfast is a tangle of rubbery threads that usually attaches to rock. However, I once found an unfortunate abalone that had been dragged up the beach by a bull kelp, on which it feeds, attached to its shell. Picture a human dragged backward out to sea by a pizza. Sometimes a large tangle of bull kelp is buoyant enough to lift large cobbles and deposit them high on the beach when the whole mass washes up. Rocks going uphill naturally aren’t what we’d expect. So I always wonder whether there are any confused geologists out there examining ancient beach

deposits with erratic clusters of cobble. If you find a fresh bull kelp with its holdfast still attached, check for some of the many animals that hide in the nooks and crannies. We have found sea stars, brittle stars, lots of small and larval crabs, shrimp, clusters of fish eggs, barnacles, sea slugs, hydroids — the list goes on. We’ve been able to salvage some of these animals for marine biology classes, which was satisfying since they were doomed to die slowly otherwise. While the holdfasts hold the kelp down, a gas-filled bulb called a pneumatocyst holds it up. Between the float and the holdfast is a long, skinny “trunk” called a stipe. Most popular accounts will tell you that bull kelp is named for the stipe’s resemblance to a bull whip. But I say it’s because the pneumatocyst resembles a bull’s something-else. A tiny bull kelp starts life attached to the bottom and grows toward the surface — at something like a foot a day in the right conditions. When it reaches the surface, its fronds spread out like the canopy of a forest. The so-called kelp forest functions ecologically as an actual forest and supports living communities. If you have the luck to dive in a kelp forest, try picturing the fish above you as birds flying around. So far it seems that the loss of kelp forests has been worse to the south of Humboldt County. But the loss of bull kelp forests may end up being a real shitstorm here too. Hopefully it will be no worse than a bird turd on my suede loafers. However, if ocean conditions keep warming and kelp restoration efforts fail, we may end up with the kind of shitstorm that leaves us with human feces cresting our lower lips. Would that be convincing enough? l Biologist Mike Kelly (he/him) writes science-based satire as M. Sid Kelly. It’s available at Eureka Books and for Kindle.

CITATION TO PARENT CASE NO.: AD2000028 SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA COUNTY OF HUMBOLDT In the Matter of the Adoption Peti− tion of: WILLIAM JAMES LAFERRIERE Adopting Parent TO: Jeanette LAFERRIERE By order of this court you are hereby advised that you may appear before the judge presiding in Department 6 of this court on May 18, 2021 at 8:30 am then and there to show cause, if any you have, why Mykal James Laferriere, should not be declared free from your custody and control for the purpose of freeing Mykal James Laferriere for placement for adop− tion. The following information concerns rights and procedures that relate to this proceeding for the termination of custody and control of said minor as set forth in Family Code Section 7860 et seq.: 1. At the beginning of the proceeding the court will consider whether or not the interests of the minor child require the appoint− ment of counsel. If the court finds that the interests of the minor do require such protection, the court will appoint counsel to represent them, whether or not they are able to afford counsel. The minors will not be present in court unless the court so orders. 2. If a parent of the minor appears without counsel and is unable to afford counsel, the court must appoint counsel for the parent, unless the parent knowingly and intelligently waives the right to be represented by counsel. The court will not appoint the same counsel to represent both the minor and his

not be present in court unless the court so orders. 2.

The court will not appoint the same counsel to represent both the minor and his parent. 3. The court may appoint private counsel. If private counsel is appointed, he or she will receive a reasonable sum for compensation and expenses, the amount of which will be determined by the court. That amount must be paid by the real parties in interest, but not by the minor, in such proportions as the court believes to be just. If, however, the court finds that any real parties in interest cannot afford counsel, the amount will be paid by the County. 4. The court may continue the proceeding for not more than thirty (30) days as necessary to appoint counsel to become acquainted with the case. Kim M Bartleson, Clerk By: Jackson W.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): In one of her poems, Emily Dickinson tells us, “The pedigree of honey / Does not concern the bee; / A clover, any time, to him / Is aristocracy.” I suggest you be like Dickinson’s bee in the coming weeks, my dear Aries. Take pleasure and power where they are offered. Be receptive to just about any resource that satisfies your raw need. Consider the possibility that substitutes and stand-ins may be just as good as the supposed original. OK? Don’t be too fussy about how pure or prestigious anything is. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A fan once asked composer Johann Sebastian Bach about his creative process. He was so prolific! How did he dream up such a constant flow of new music? Bach told his admirer that the tunes came to him unbidden. When he woke up each morning, they were already announcing themselves in his head. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, Taurus, a comparable phenomenon may very well visit you in the coming weeks—not in the form of music, but as intuitions and insights about your life and your future. Your main job is to be receptive to them, and make sure you remember them. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “I love unmade beds,” writes Gemini poet Shane Koyczan. “I love when people are drunk and crying and cannot be anything but honest. I love the look in people’s eyes when they realize they’re in love. I love the way people look when they first wake up and they’ve forgotten their surroundings. I love when people close their eyes and drift to somewhere in the clouds.” In the coming days, Gemini, I encourage you to specialize in moments like those: when you and the people you’re interested in are candid, unguarded, raw, vulnerable, and primed to go deeper. In my opinion, your soul needs the surprising healing that will come from these experiences. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Trailblazing psychologist C. G. Jung said his loneliness wasn’t about a lack of people around him. Rather, it came from the fact that he knew things that most people didn’t know and didn’t want to know. He had no possibility of communicating many of the interesting truths that were important to him! But I’m guessing that won’t be much of a problem for you in the coming months. According to my astrological analysis, you’re more likely to be well-listened to and understood than you have been in quite some time. For best results, ASK to be listened to and understood. And think about how you might express yourself in ways that are likely to be interesting and useful to others. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The French government regularly gives the Legion of Honor award to people deemed to have provided exceptional service to the world. Most recipients are deserving, but a few have been decidedly unworthy. In the latter category are Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega and Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, as well as drug-cheating athlete Lance Armstrong, sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, and Nazi collaborator Marshal Pétain. I bring this to your attention, Leo, because the coming weeks will be a favorable time to reward people who have helped and supported you. But I also suggest that you pointedly exclude those who have too many negatives mixed in with their positives. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In 2010, an American engineer named Edward Pimentel went to Moscow to compete in the World Karaoke Championship. He won by singing Usher’s “DJ Got Us Falling in Love.” His award: one million dumplings, enough to last him 27 years. I have a good feeling about the possibility of you, too, collecting a new prize or perk or privilege sometime soon. I just hope it’s a healthier boon than dumplings. For best results, take some time now to clearly define the nature of the prize or perk or privilege that you really want—and that will be truly useful.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I will love it if sometime soon you find or create an opportunity to speak words similar to what novelist D. H. Lawrence once wrote to a lover: “You seem to have knit all things in a piece for me. Things are not separate; they are all in a symphony.” In other words, Libra, I’ll be ecstatic if you experience being in such synergistic communion with an empathic ally that the two of you weave a vision of life that’s vaster and richer than either one of you could summon by yourself. The astrological omens suggest this possibility is now more likely than usual. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Sometimes people don’t like the provocative posts I publish on Facebook. They leave comments like, “You stupid idiot!” or “I hope you commit suicide!” and far worse. When I delete their messages, they become even more enraged, accusing me of censorship. “So you don’t believe in free speech, you jerk?” they complain. I don’t try to reason with them. They don’t deserve any of my time or energy. But if I did communicate with them, I might say, “My Facebook page is my sanctuary, where I welcome cordial conversation. If you came into my house and called me an idiot, would it be ‘censorship’ if I told you to leave?” I hope these thoughts inspire you to clarify and refine your own personal boundaries, Scorpio. It’s a good time to get precise and definite about what’s acceptable and unacceptable from the people with whom you engage. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Have you ever kissed a monster in your nightly dreams? Have you won a chess match with a demon or signed a beneficial contract with a ghost or received a useful blessing from a pest? I highly recommend activities like those in the coming weeks—both while you’re asleep and awake. Now is a good time to at least make peace with challenging influences, and at best come into a new relationship with them that serves you better. I dare you to ask for a gift from an apparent adversary. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): What does it mean to “follow the path with heart”? I invite you to meditate on that question. Here are my ideas. To follow the path with heart means choosing a destiny that appeals to your feelings as well as to your ambitions and ideas and habits. To follow a path with heart means living a life that fosters your capacity to give and receive love. To follow the path with heart means honoring your deepest intuitions rather than the expectations other people have about you. To follow the path with heart means never comparing your progress with that of anyone else’s, but rather simply focusing on being faithful to your soul’s code. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “It’s a good thing when people are different from your images of them,” wrote Aquarian author Boris Pasternak. “It shows they are not merely a type. If you can’t place them in a category, it means that at least a part of them is what a human being ought to be. They have risen above themselves, they have a grain of immortality.” I love that perspective! I’m offering it to you because right now is a favorable time to show that you are indeed different from the images people have of you; that you transcend all stereotyping; that you are uncategorizable. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You have personal possession of the universe’s most monumental creation: consciousness. This mercurial flash and dazzle whirling around inside you is outlandishly spectacular. You can think thoughts any time you want to—soaring, luminescent, flamboyant thoughts or shriveled, rusty, burrowing thoughts; thoughts that can invent or destroy, corrupt or redeem, bless or curse. There’s more. You can revel and wallow in great oceans of emotion. Whether they are poignant or intoxicating or somewhere in between, you relish the fact that you can harbor so much intensity. You cherish the privilege of commanding such extravagant life force. I bring these thoughts to your attention because the time is right for a holiday I call Celebrate Your Greatest Gifts. l
