Re: Impeachment Editor: Thank you to Thadeus Greenson and the North Coast Journal for an excellent interview with Congressperson Jared Huffman (“The Case for Impeachment,” June 13). His answers clarified matters for me in regard to whether or not to pursue impeachment now. For many years I lived in Southern California and was pleased to have Adam Schiff as my congressperson. I have now been in Humboldt County for three and a half years and I am equally pleased and satisfied with Congressperson Huffman. Mark Chaet, Arcata Editor: Can the republic — any republic — survive a clinically delusional president? Combined with a see-no-evil Republican Senate; and a willfully purblind GOP base that supports Trump 89 percent? There is not the remotest chance the 2020 GOP convention will ditch Trump for a second term. At present, House Democrats appear hamstrung by a White House engaged in mutinous and serial law breaking. Will the voters turn out in enough numbers next year to ensure Trump’s ouster? Will Trump accept the verdict if he loses? The latter is not a rhetorical question. His assertion on national TV that he would happily accept political dirt from foreign sources is yet another impeachable offense, a breach of the presidential oath. (No bars to foreign influence peddling.) Translation: “I’ll do anything to win,” illegality be damned — tantamount to, “I won’t leave, period.” He knows he’ll go to prison if does. What if Trump, like Putin, resorts to a cyber or artificial intelligence attack of his own making if he is losing next year, possibly throwing the voting machines into disarray in key states and tying up ballot counts indefinitely in the courts? Even if the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against him, would he and Attorney General Barr defy it, too? Why not, if you’re scorning House subpoenas across the board? Trump’s obstruction of justice goes on to this very moment, barefaced and militant. He’ll stop at nothing, including attacking this nation. The more imperative it is to remove him, the more desperate he becomes and the more dangerous to the rule of law. Trump has set in train a sequence of national crises likely to culminate in tragedy. A la Henry II and Thomas à Beckett, “Who will rid us of this man?” Who can? Congressman Huffman may be mistak-

It’s Not So Bad Editor: With two view points about galleries and art sales recently — “Artists without Galleries” (April 11) by Gabrielle Gopinath and “More on Galleries” by Alan Sanborn (Mailbox, April 25) — I feel compelled to add my own experience to the mix. Galleries have long struggled to maintain a footing in Humboldt County and I have shown with many since 1979. The late Mike Atlee ran by far the most successful gallery for roughly a three-year period in the early ‘90s. It’s always been hard in a small art-loving community like ours for artists to maintain a relationship with a gallery and at the same time not invite clients to their studio and offer them a lower price without the gallery commission. With that said, sales in Humboldt still continue, at artists’ studios as well at any venue that shows and sells the work. In the broader and larger picture in the country, yes, many galleries have closed but new ones keep opening and long-standing galleries keep selling work. They sell work to renters, home owners, businesses, de-

signers and those who love the work and can afford it. Sales are very brisk all over the country and it’s not the 1 percent that are buying. The 1 percent has little or no interest in the work most of us do. I personally find there are more opportunities for artist to show and sell work through galleries, plein air events for landscape painters, juried shows, online competitions and so many ways on the internet to connect with others artist, dealers, clients and art lovers than ever before. Within our community, I know several painters who are making those connections and selling their work. It is true, no matter what, we will keep making art. Jim McVicker, Loleta
‘So Savage and Relevant’ Editor: I read Jennifer Fumiko Cahill’s “This is Not a Weed Tampon” (June 13) at 9:30 Thursday night. It was so spot on I didn’t even flinch from firing off an annoying group text to friends and colleagues late in the evening. It was a risk worth taking. Fumiko Cahill’s article was so savage and relevant, I knew my crew would appreciate her elegant writing even if they were trying to shake off the day through various means of nighttime rituals; meditation, taking a CBD tincture, writing memos on rural economic development or cocktails. Not 10 minutes passed before a flurry of comments came in and a structured debate was held. Unlike Humboldt’s ap-
proach to issues like, um, industrial hemp or wind energy (yeah, I said it), we found a rational consensus that this was the best Week in Weed thus far. How did we come to this position, you may ask? Well, we all have “mini heart attacks in our uteruses,” all are fighting for the normality of cannabis, all pay taxes on tampons and all have had to deal with one form or another of the gym teacher Jennifer references in her article (I see your sideways glance and raise ya a forward middle finger). Whoa, whoa, whoa you may say. Was the proverbial bird really necessary? We should have these conversations with professionalism, right? Wrong. My high school gym teacher told me, “Buck up as the boys do,” when I asked to go to the nurse as an impressionable 14-year-old girl. This is the same mentality that is currently trying to regulate women’s bodies across our nation and keep cannabis federally illegal. Call your relatives in those swing states and make sure they vote. Maybe we will get a lucky two for and push cannabis and women’s issues, alike, in the next election. Terra Carver, Kneeland

conflicted California Coastal Commission voted 6-3 on June 12 to object to the Trinidad Rancheria’s proposed 100-room hotel project on Scenic Drive, finding it inconsistent with state coastal protections. Commissioners made clear during the nearly two-hour hearing in San Diego that the main consistency issue lies with water, and namely whether the city of Trinidad has the capacity to supply water to
the project. The city currently has several studies underway but can’t commit to providing water to the proposed five-story hotel adjacent to Cher-Ae Heights Casino until they are complete, which is expected to happen before August. Multiple commissioners lamented that the Bureau of Indian Affairs, which has jurisdictional oversight of the project because it is on sovereign tribal land, repeatedly declined staff requests to postpone the hearing until the commission’s meet-
ing in August, which would have allowed for more local input and — potentially — completion of the water studies. Before the vote, several commissioners indicated they intended to vote to object to the project at this time but urged the Rancheria to resubmit its application so it can be heard at the August meeting. After the meeting, Trinidad Rancheria Economic Development Corporation CEO David Tyson told the Journal in an email that the Rancheria would decide how to proceed after conferring with BIA officials. The Rancheria has pushed the proposal to build the hotel on the bluffs along Scenic Drive about a mile south of city limits as a way to bring economic development to what Tribal Chair Garth Sundberg described to the commission as a small tribe with a high-unemployment rate and “tremendous needs.” “We have a right to economic development on our tribal lands,” he said. Because the project is on the tribal land of the Rancheria, a sovereign nation, it falls under the purview of the BIA and is subject to a federal environmental review process. As a part of that process, the BIA must bring the project to the California Coastal Commission, which must concur with or object to the BIA’s assessment that the project will have no discernible effect upon the coastal environment and will not violate the California Coastal Act. If the Coastal Commission disagrees with BIA’s assessment, the bureau can proceed anyway but must offer a thorough explanation of why it disagrees, a path that leaves the decision susceptible to a legal challenge. Or, the two agencies can enter into non-binding mediation. In a series of public meetings hosted by the Rancheria to discuss the project, area residents have raised concerns about everything from traffic impacts to the geologic stability of the site. But Coastal Commission staff’s review of the project found most impacts would be negligible but zeroed in on two areas where it felt the project wasn’t in compliance with the Coastal Act: water and visual impacts. While the project would not be subject to local zoning regulations, a provision of the coastal act requires that it be “visually compatible” with the surrounding community. Commission staff pointed out that this is a potential problem, as the proposed five-story hotel would be the tallest structure by 30 feet in the surrounding 20 miles, and those doesn’t fit with the existing character of the area. But staff noted the Rancheria has worked to mitigate those impacts, re-
designing the hotel to feature earth-tone paints and non-reflective glass designed to make it less visible from Trinidad Bay and Trinidad Head. Staff requested the Rancheria further alter its plans to decrease the height of the hotel and potentially disperse some of the hotel rooms to other parts of the Rancheria’s property. But the Rancheria responded that the hotel needs 100 rooms to be economically viable and there are already
plans for the other pieces of Rancheria property identified by Coastal Commission staff. Commissioners indicated they weren’t overly concerned about the visual impacts or believed something could be worked out with the Rancheria to further minimize them. The sticking point, they indicated, was the water. The Rancheria has argued the city’s water treatment plant has the capacity to
serve the project — and Tyson even indicated at the hearing that the Rancheria believes that its existing agreement with the city to provide water to the property should cover the project. The city, on the other hand, has told the commission it would like to commit to supplying water to the hotel but can’t until it determines if the flows of Luffenholtz Creek are Continued on next page »

‘Encroachment’ With inadequate state and federal funding, local districts stretch to provide special education services By Iridian Casarez

bill introduced earlier this year by North Coast Congressman Jared Huffman would make good on long-promised funding for special education. It also puts a spotlight on the issue in Humboldt County, where disproportionate rates of students need special education services and inadequate state and federal funding streams leave districts’ budgets stretched thin. Take Northern Humboldt Unified High School District as an example. Superintendent Roger Macdonald said the district received $1 million in special education funding from the state and federal governments, but spent more than $3.7 million providing for its students, leaving a deficit of more than $2.6 million to be taken from the district’s general fund. “It’s called an encroachment on the general fund,” Macdonald said. “It sounds scary to parents and teachers but it just means we don’t have the $2.6 million to spend on other things, like expanding culinary or music classes, or give raises or benefits.” Special education funding comes from a complex patchwork of state and federal streams, but the two don’t cover the costs of providing services, meaning districts like Northern Humboldt have to bridge the gap. County Superintendent of Schools Chris Hartley said part of the problem is that the structure for special education funding was set up in the 1970s and is “no longer relevant to the current student population.” “For Humboldt County, this is an equity issue,” he said in an email to the Journal, adding that the county remains near the lowest in per-pupil state special education spending. “As a result, Humboldt County districts are disproportionately using more

general fund dollars to fund the mandated services required to meet the needs for students in special education.” Statewide, about 11 percent of the student population, or about 795,000 students, have documented disabilities. But locally, students with disabilities make up 20 percent of Humboldt and Del Norte counties’ student population, a nearly two-fold increase from the state, according to Mindy Fattig, executive director of the Humboldt-Del Norte County Special Education Local Plan Areas, also known as SELPA, which oversees special education services in the two counties. Fattig, whose career in special education services spans 24 years, said that funding in California is allocated to each SELPA and then a policy council — SELPA’s governing body made up of 13 local superintendents — determines how much funding goes to each district. There are 132 SELPAs in California that serve as the state’s designated associations “of professional educators organized to present, review and evaluate major special education issues.” They collaborate with school districts and county agencies to
ensure a “healthy and enriching environment” for students with disabilities and are responsible for ensuring program availability, staff development, regionalized services and program specialists, and much more. In addition to managing the SELPA as its executive director, Fattig’s role is mediating conflicts between districts and families, ensuring students are receiving the services they need, helping staff write and providing professional training on the Individualized Education Programs required for all special education students. In 1975, Congress passed the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), which committed to funding 40 percent of the cost of special education and related services, though Congress has never fully funded the pledge. Jonathan Mendick, a representative with the California Department of Education, said IDEA is allocated using a formula that’s based on population and poverty levels. Announcing the introduction of his funding bill earlier this year, Huffman said he hopes to bridge the gap between alloContinued on next page »

cated funding and the overwhelming costs of special education services. In California, the projected cost for the 2017-2018 school year was $14.9 billion, but California’s federal IDEA was just $1.3 billion, roughly 8 percent of the cost, Mendick said. According to Fattig, that same year, Humboldt-Del Norte County SELPA received $4.1 million in federal funds but local districts spent $51 million providing special education services. “The original premise of IDEA was to cover 40 percent of the excess cost of providing special education and related services to children with disabilities,” Mendick said in an email to the Journal. “Nationally, it is estimated IDEA only covers about 15 percent of the excess costs for special education, less than half the original full-funding level promised when IDEA was enacted.” The second part of special education funding in California comes from the Special Education Program under Assembly Bill 602, which provides funding to SELPAs based on average daily attendance. For the 2017-2018 school year, Humboldt and Del Norte counties received about $10 million in state funding to provide special education services. Together, the federal and state governments provided about $14.1 million for local districts to provide special education services that year, which covered only a small portion of the $51 million spent locally, according to Corey Weber, Humboldt County Office of Education’s director of fiscal services. The rest of the expenses, Weber wrote in an email to the Journal, are “covered by various grants, local funds and contributions from the district/county’s general fund unrestricted revenues.” Fattig, who’s in her eighth year as SELPA’s executive director, said the funding gap has impacts. “Even though we don’t have enough (special education) funding, we still find a way to provide the services that are necessary through other funding,” Fattig said. “Humboldt County has the highest number of students in special education in the state of California, but we are one of the lowest funded SELPAs.” Fattig also said preschool special education doesn’t receive federal funding and only minimal funding from the state. Preschoolers are one of Humboldt and Del Norte counties’ highest growth areas of children needing special education services, Fattig said. She added that early intervention is very important but difficult without a designated funding stream. On top of directing Humboldt-Del Norte SELPA, Fattig also spends time working with state legislators tracking bills
to increase funding for special education and often offers the perspective of providers in rural areas. Fattig is working to push Assembly Bill 428, which would adjust state special education funding formulas and provide funding for preschool special education services. Huffman, meanwhile, has submitted his IDEA funding bill twice before but it has never passed the House. Now on his third attempt, Huffman has recruited 53 bipartisan cosponsors for the bill, according to his office. Recently, Huffman helped ensure the Appropriations Committee and the Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies subcommittee approved an additional $1 billion in IDEA funding for the fiscal year, according to a press release from his office. “All students deserve access to a free and appropriate public education — that’s the promise of federal law,” he said in the press release. “But Congress and the president have repeatedly failed to meet the federal commitment to children with disabilities. This funding increase is an important step in the right direction. … I will keep pushing to fully fund IDEA so that we support children with special needs, their families and their schools.” Marilyn Lucey, who received a graduate degree in special education and currently works for Special Education Advocacy, is familiar with the funding legislation. She said the first step to equalize special education funding is to raise the federal contribution to IDEA’s originally pledged 40 percent. “While the efforts in California to increase the funding to special education is a step in the right direction, until we can fully fund the promise of the federal government in IDEA to fund 40 percent of the true cost of providing the supports and services our students with disabilities require for a free and appropriate public education, we still have more work to do,” Lucey said in an email. “The unfunded mandate has placed a great burden on the state and local school districts and has created a fiscal responsibility that is nearly impossible to meet … and also created a system that pits the schools and caregivers in opposition, which isn’t fair to anyone,” she said. “With less than half of the 40 percent ever provided, it is easy to see how schools and caregivers struggle to provide truly individual education plans.” ● Iridian Casarez is a staff writer at the Journal.

Week in Weed
Village Down and Holding in Prison By Thadeus Greenson email@example.com
ake sure and pour a little bong water out this week for Reggae on the River and its Cannabis Village. We hardly even knew ye, Cannabis Village! For reasons that aren’t entirely clear, High Times unceremoniously pulled the plug on the 35-year-old festival June 17, posting a brief message on the concert’s website saying it would be canceled, with ticket holders getting full refunds within 10 business days. High Times folks said the decision was made in collaboration with the Mateel Community Center, whose board of directors promptly sent out a statement saying it was “disappointed, shocked and saddened” to learn of the cancelation. While details are sparse at this point, it seems likely this also means plans to erect a permitted 40,000-square-foot “Cannabis Village” with more than 100 vendor and exhibitor tents and a designated smoking area are also now on the scrap heap. The festival was poised to become Humboldt County’s first special event with permitted recreational sales on site. l
The Los Angeles Times published a detailed report this week on the virtual civil war going on in Santa Barbara County over cannabis and it’s well worth a read. But here’s the short of it: The county opened its arms wide to the cannabis industry — offering permits to all who apply without any size restrictions and no site inspections — and those chickens are now coming home to roost. The county has been inundated with large grows and is now home to 35 percent of the cultivation licenses issued in the state. Its famous wineries now have views of rolling hills dominated by white hoop houses, the warm breeze now carrying pungent, skunky odors into their tasting rooms. Its avocado orchards are facing devastating losses as they can’t spray them with pesticides for fear they will be held liable if any were to drift and contaminate neighboring cannabis farms worth millions of dollars. And the quaint beach town of Carpinteria is worried the whole situation will cripple the tourism industry that is the backbone of its economy. So, you might be asking, just how big are these grows? Massive. According to the Times, one is currently in the works that would span 147 acres — roughly the size of 130 football fields — which would be the largest legal pot grow on Earth. Another is 83 acres. There are numerous others that are 30 acres or more.
l The California Third District Court of Appeals issued a bit of a head-scratcher ruling this week, reversing the convictions of five state prison inmates who’d been found with marijuana in their cells and charged with felony possession. Because Proposition 64 does not carve out an exception for prisoners, the appeals court ruled that it’s no longer illegal to possess cannabis in state prisons. But that doesn’t mean you can smoke it or ingest it, as the proposition apparently does include language criminalizing consumption in prison. And, of course, prisons can still set rules against possession — doling out punishments like the revocation of good behavior credits or punitive housing placements — as they do with pornography, cell phones and other “contraband.” But it will no longer be illegal. In an interview in the San Jose Mercury News, attorney Dan Horowitz said the situation underscores just how untenable the nation’s patchwork of cannabis laws is. “I have a client who’s facing life in prison for allegedly shipping marijuana to Missouri, yet California inmates can have it in their prison cells,” he said. “It’s insane.”

l The Department of Veterans Affairs, Harvard Medical School and the University of Pennsylvania released a study this week indicating military veterans use cannabis instead of prescription medications and other drugs to treat physical and mental conditions. Researchers surveyed nearly 100 veterans and found almost 80 percent reported using marijuana to treat health issues from chronic pain and insomnia to PTSD and depression. Nearly two-thirds of the veterans said they use cannabis in place of other drugs — including alcohol and prescription pharmaceuticals. “Given that cannabis use is associated with a much lower dependency potential and risk of overdose compared to other substances with a risk of misuse, this finding could suggest a positive impact of reduced barriers to medical cannabis among veterans,” the study concludes. l Thadeus Greenson is the Journal’s news editor.

Fortuna Man Arrested for Allegedly Threatening Church Group at HSU
n 18-year-old Fortuna man was arrested June 15 after allegedly making criminal threats against a church group that planned to visit Humboldt State University, with the threats making reference to a pair of mass shootings. University Police Chief Donn Peterson told the Journal that Sean Allman made the threats via text messages to church members, with some of the messages referencing mass shootings at a New Zealand mosque and Columbine High School. “The congregants communicated through their network, their church, and a person there reached out to authorities here in Humboldt County that included UPD and Fortuna PD,” Peterson said, adding that local police learned of the threats the previous afternoon. Peterson said it’s still unclear why Allman allegedly directed these threats at this particular church group. According to a UPD press release, Allman lives in Fortuna with his family and is not an HSU student.

While Allman was in custody when UPD sent out the press release, UPD asked the campus community to remain vigilant in the event he was released. UPD distributed a flier asking anyone who sees Allman on campus to contact UPD immediately. Asked if Allman had the means to carry out an attack or follow through on his threats, Peterson said it’s not immediately clear, though he said it is incumbent upon UPD to take all threats seriously. “If you’re going to make threats toward campus, idle or otherwise, and you’re going to invoke the memories of other mass killings to do it, we’re going to take those things very, very seriously,” he said. According to the HSU press release, Allman is described as standing 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing 135 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. UPD asks that anyone who sees him on campus contact the department immediately by dialing 911 or calling 826-5555. While Allman was arrested on suspicion

The Gray Whale Die-off
As strandings continue, scientists scramble to figure out why

that we’ve seen this year demands an investigation to determine what might be causing the die-off, such as environmental conditions, disease or human activities,” says Deborah Fauquier, a veterinary medical officer with NOAA’s Office of Protected Resources. More than 150 of the marine giants have been found dead on beaches from Mexico to Alaska since January, a dramatic upswing in deaths not seen in two decades. More are expected in the coming weeks and months. And because whales — especially emaciated ones — are more likely to sink into the ocean depths than wash ashore, marine biologists believe the reality is far worse than what’s been found. “It’s a number that’s difficult to quantify,” says John Calambokidis, a marine biologist studying West Coast whale populations with the Washington state nonprofit

ith a bulbous upper jaw jutting out from an elongated head dappled by a patchwork of barnacles, the gray whale may not cut the same sleek figure as its oceanic cousin — and mortal enemy — the orca, which recently made some forays into Humboldt Bay. But the whales named after their slate coloring can be easy to spot from shore during their twice yearly jaunts past the North Coast, sometimes showing off with spectacular displays of breaching or a simple flip of the tail fluke. Currently returning from a winter break in the warm water lagoons of Mexico, where a new generation was born, gray whales are nearing the last leg of their journey back to the cool Arctic waters where they will spend the summer feeding and fattening up for next year’s trek. The marathon migration — traversing some 13,000 miles — is believed to be the longest of any mammal. But in recent months, something has gone terribly wrong. Gray whales, the official state marine mammal of California, have been washing up dead in such alarming numbers that NOAA Fisheries recently declared what is known as an “Unusual Mortality Event,” freeing up resources and triggering a multi-faceted scientific review to try to figure out why. “The significant die-off of these animals

Northwest.” That, Goley says, raises the question: Have the food resources dwindled for some reason or is there simply not enough food to go around? “Hopefully, we’ll be able to figure some of that out,” she says. The local network has teams scouring 31 beaches in Humboldt, Del Norte and Mendocino counties each week, with every found whale helping to build another data point as scientists strive to unlock the mystery of the high mortality rate. But even that level of effort leaves vast stretches of shoreline unchecked in the isolated reaches of the North Coast. It’s important, Goley notes, to reach the whales as soon as possible to collect samples in order to glean as much information as possible before nature takes its course in the form of decomposition and scavengers. The network collaborates with as many organizations as possible, including the Bureau of Land Management and state and national park employees, Goley says, but it always needs more help. And, that’s where the public comes in. “The quicker people call (the stranding hotline to report a washed-up whale), the quicker we can get there,” she says. “The more eyes the better. … The more of a community effort we can get, the better the understanding we can get of what is going on.” Goley notes the Guadalupe fur seal has been facing a similar dilemma to the gray whale since 2015, washing up alive and dead across coastal California in numbers NOAA describes as “eight times higher than the historic average.” “Those stranding are mostly weaned pups and juveniles (1-2 years old),” the NOAA mortality event page for the seals states. “The majority of stranded animals showed signs of malnutrition with secondary bacterial and parasitic infections.” Guadalupe fur seals found alive are sent to The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito or Sea World in San Diego for treatment. Unlike the gray whales, which can reach lengths up to 49 feet and weigh in at a boisterous 90,000 pounds (with females slightly larger than males), Guadalupe fur seals are “quite slight” at 3 to 7 feet and perhaps a few hundred pounds, making them harder to spot, Goley says. “They can be preyed upon pretty quickly,” she says. The animals may differ greatly in size but both were nearly hunted to extinction a century ago with the gray whale, now often thought of as a gentle giant, earning the name “devil fish” for fiercely fighting back when harpooned in a grisly hunt to provide lamp oil.

The entire population of Guadalupe fur seals, once coveted for their luxurious pelts as well as oil-rich blubber, was thought to be lost until a small colony was discovered in the 1950s. Both species are recovering from near decimation after protections were put in place but both are now facing a different battle, although any role humans may have played this time around is still unclear. While data is now being processed in the case of the Guadalupe fur seals, the search for what is causing the unusual mortality event for gray whales is just getting started. An investigation into a similar gray whale die-off two decades ago found starvation to be a “significant contributing factor,” according to the report, but no conclusion was reached on why the whales were unable to find enough food. One question raised today is whether the gray whale population of 27,000 — one of the largest recorded in recent decades — has exceeded its so-called “carrying capacity,” or the ecosystem’s ability to support the burgeoning population.

Center, says that is one theory but also notes that “carrying capacity is not a set ceiling but it is a shifting threshold.” “The capacity of the environment to support a whale population varies from year to year,” he says, adding that as dire as the die-off sounds, the whales should be able to bounce back. Another potential factor is the interplay between the early melting of Arctic ice due to climate change and how that impacts the shrimp-like amphipods that make up the whales’ primary food source. “It becomes a complex question,” says Sue Moore, a biological oceanographer at the University of Washington, adding the whales may eventually need to “shift to other prey.” One aspect being researched is whether “sea ice provides fertilizer to those amphipods beds” amid the sediment of the Arctic seafloor, Moore says, noting that the beds appear to be shifting northward. “Right now, we are just piecing it together as we can,” she says, noting there are a number of potential factors, including environmental changes and disease, that will be examined in the coming months.
Like Goley, NOAA Fisheries officials and marine biologists are asking for the public’s help by reporting distressed, floating or beached whales, while also emphasizing that people should not approach the animals, which is against the law. And with more strandings expected, NOAA has even put out the call to property owners in the Pacific Northwest to volunteer sites where the unusual number of whales can be allowed to naturally decompose. Meanwhile, marine biologists will continue to assess the situation as they collect samples and pore over data in an attempt to unravel what is behind the massive die-off. “The No. 1 priority is learning all we can from the stranded animals,” Weller says. “We’ve got our fingers on the pulse and I would say we want to continue to monitor it closely. The expectation is we’re halfway into to this.” l Kimberly Wear is the Journal’s assistant editor. Reach her at 442-1400, extension 323, or email@example.com. Follow her on Twitter @kimberly_wear.

It Didn’t Get Better, I Did Reflections during Pride month
THE NORTH COAST’S COMPLETE R E STA U R A N T D I R E C T O RY
By Aydan Ash Tillett

appy Pride month! I am so excited to be living in a time when the LGBTQ+ community has experienced so much progress that we are able to have an entire month dedicated to celebrating our culture and raising awareness. As with any and all things that involve humans, it is not perfect. But I have personally decided to make the best effort I can to focus on the positive progress while never forgetting what it cost and how far we still have to go. As with many holidays, this time of year can be difficult for members of the LGBTQ+ community. Even during a time of year dedicated to the celebration and education about their own community, LGBTQ+ people still experience oppression, aggression, fear and trauma. For some, even more than usual. This may be confusing for some of you and, if you are anywhere near a decent human being, probably saddening. But contrary to the popular saying “It gets better,” sometimes it does not. For me, it got much worse. I came out as a gay man in August of 2013, three months before my 30th birthday. This was after decades of being raised to believe that homosexuality was the “worst sin ever,” as bad as murder or abuse. Needless to say, this caused quite a few difficult psychological conflicts. You can imagine how liberated and elated I felt when I finally came to the conclusion that I was not the one with the “problem,” that the individuals who used religion as an excuse to abuse and manipulate me were the monsters. I genuinely believed that it would almost immediately start getting better. And I had every reason to believe so. It absolutely does get better for many people. Coming out is the beginning of their authentic life, the discovery of the path to their truth and the knowledge of how to truly love themselves. That is better. But a short six months after coming out
as a gay man, I ended up in the hospital with meningitis, nearly on my deathbed. After four days, I was told by my doctor that my bloodwork revealed I was HIV positive. So began a long journey of health, self-discovery, pain, trauma and healing that felt like the end, but also the beginning. I kept waiting for it to get better. I kept thinking that “after this,” or “when I feel better physically” it will be better. I built my hopes up and saw them crashing down further and further every time. Instead of having a lifetime to learn, grow, accept my sexuality, accept my identity, explore my personality and sexuality, I was thrown into a storm of discovery, mental and physical health issues and psychological trauma surfacing from long ago, as well as adding new trauma because you haven’t dealt with the original one. This was not better. But people kept telling me that it would get better. They had my best interests in mind. Just be patient. Just be strong. Don’t give up. You’re so strong. It gets better. It has been five years. I have created a drag persona I love, helped build LGBTQ+ opportunities in my community, experienced new sexual abuse trauma in the midst of beginning to deal with my past sexual abuse trauma, had the foundation of my entire worldview crumble underneath me, came out as a transgender woman, became suicidal, survived becoming suicidal, became an advocate for my personal and mental health, discovered a wonderful support system and learned how to let go of people who are not good
for me. There were many other experiences, too, that I do not have the space to describe here. Still, I never felt like it was getting better. I felt it was getting much worse. But this Pride month, as I reflect on these past five years, I realized something powerful. It didn’t get better — I did. It is a fact that my situation is difficult every single day. It has not improved. But I have dug my 6-inch heels and acrylic nails in deep and held on for dear life. At other times, it felt like climbing upward an inch at a time to a future I wasn’t even sure existed. But I never stopped. It still isn’t easy. It never felt good and often still doesn’t. I was confused, depressed, frustrated, angry, sad, happy, hopeless and full of vision. I don’t have a feel-good Pride story. What I do have is the knowledge that I am better. I have improved. I have learned. I have grown. I have changed. I like the person I am now. And that is powerful. I like the person I am now. Yes, of course, there are things I wish were different, better, easier. But that does not change the fact that the person who emerged is beautiful, strong, compassionate, fierce and basically an allaround badass. Nothing and nobody can ever take that away from me. I don’t have any control over “it” and whether or not it gets better. But I can do my best to ensure that the part I do have control over — myself — always improves in whatever way I decide is best. It is my right and privilege. So this Pride month, I encourage you to remember: It may not always get better but that doesn’t mean you won’t.l

All the Pretty Oysters
The drama and the winners at Oyster Fest By Jennifer Fumiko Cahill firstname.lastname@example.org

he lead-up to the 2019 Arcata Bay Oyster Festival was a lot. Local beer brewers were once again shut out of the plaza taps when event organizer Arcata Main Street made an exclusive deal with Crescent City’s SeaQuake Brewing, prompting backlash and the alternative Shuck Yeah event at Eel River Brewing Co. Then, a mere two days before the festival booths went up, a math error in a bacteria count led health officials to temporarily close Humboldt Bay’s oyster fisheries and warn vendors and restaurants not to serve our local bivalves before quickly rescinding the warnings and declaring Humboldt oysters safe to eat. Head Oystress Sydney Morrone said she hadn’t heard of any oysters actually dumped in the pre-festival panic but this was a close enough call for everyone. In fact, before the oysters were tested and declared safe Friday, organizers were already working on shipping in more than 100,000 alternate oysters from Oregon. Happily, it wasn’t necessary and the oysters on the plaza — and up for judging — were homegrown. Despite the drama, early estimates from Arcata Main Street come in with just under 12,000 attendees milling around the plaza with paper boats of oysters and trying to avoid that drunk fool spilling his beer on everyone’s shoes. Yeah, I see you, jackass. This year the 14 judges, myself included, were glamping out in a tent where SeaQuake beer and Cook’s sparkling wine — once forbidden during judging — flowed freely as “oystresses” glided in and out with paper trays and platters of oysters. (See the slideshow at www.northcoastjournal. com for a full perusal of the contestants.) We were informed that the five points for presentation would be restricted to the look of the single oysters in their shells, not the serving plates — which, in years past, have included flashing LED lights, a model of Atlantis and a working carousel. Best Cooked Oyster was the broadest field with eight contenders. The entries ran the gamut from thick, bubbling sauces to fruity vinaigrettes and yes, a little butter and lemon. In the end, Blue Lake Casino and Hotel repeated its 2018 win, this time with a sweet and spicy barbecue sauce, a little miso, wasabi and “dancing” bonito flakes that curl in contact with moisture. Perhaps because it doesn’t carry the
same cachet as the oyster prizes, Best Non-Oyster only found three entrants. But the winner was a standout. Again, Blue Lake Casino and Hotel scored with a fried wonton “tostada” with spicy tuna, jalapeño, avocado, aioli and eel sauce. Best in Show once again went to the perennially high-scoring Sushi Spot, which won over palates with a raw Goose Point in sesame-lime vinaigrette with peppered avocado puree, cilantro oil, crushed Himalayan salt, lime zest and sambal, as well as its cooked oyster in creamy garlic-kimchee sauce with pineapple, cilantro, sesame, scallion, seven-spice and habanero-infused masago. I’ll give judges the benefit of the doubt for the raw but any of us who say we didn’t recognize the cooked as a signature — and very good — Sushi Spot oyster are sleeping or pulling your leg. The number of oyster contest entrants has been steadily shrinking in recent years. The competition for Best Raw Oyster came down to a mere four entries, down from last year’s five and nearly double that in 2015. Notable was the total absence of shooters — are shooters over? Discuss. In any case, first-timers Fregoso’s Comida Mexicana came away victorious with an “al pastor” marinated Kumamoto with grilled pineapple salsa. Well, sort of first-timers — much of the same team was in place at Savory when it won in 2017. This was, for me, the best offering of the day, and one that chef David Velasco came up with on his first try. “We’re a Mexican restaurant,” he said. “I feel like all the Mexican ingredients are in the oyster, you know, the pineapple, the guajillo peppers for the pastor marinade, the habanero peppers.” The result was the total package, a beautiful oyster dressed in color, the sweetness of fruit, a little heat and tang, all without masking the light brine and sweet, creamy meat our fresh oysters are prized for the world over. And that’s the trick of both oysters and Oyster Fest that’s so hard to pull off — making something exciting without crushing the very thing that made it special in the first place. l Jennifer Fumiko Cahill is the arts and features editor at the Journal.

Summer Farewells and Metal as Hell By Collin Yeo
t’s been an interesting local news cycle as far as the local music scene is concerned. The Mateel Community Center can’t seem to catch a break, with back-to-back cancellations of Reggae on the River and the Andre Nickatina show in July. This doesn’t augur well for the state of SoHum or the rest of the area, as the Mateel in general and the festival in particular have not only served as strong cultural institutions, but as real boosters for the local economy. It can be hard living in the Alaska of California — as I think of the remote triad of Mendo, Humboldt and Trinity counties — and we need every dollar we can get from our summer visitors. I hope things turn around before they get worse. On a brighter note, summer is officially here and that’s absolutely something to rally around. We don’t get too many flashes of the sort of “eternity in an hour” that William Blake was talking about in “Auguries of Innocence,” but we might catch something nearby during the right sunrise, afternoon at the river or sunset on the ocean. And that’s always good food for the soul. Have a long week of daylight.
Thursday The Gatehouse Well is playing a free show at Pierson Park in McKinleyville at 6 p.m. today. Imagine this: The penultimate longest day of the year, sunshine and grass everywhere and the sounds of insects in the late afternoon punctuating the songs of one of Humboldt’s premier Celtic folk bands. Pretty fine, right?
Friday (Summer Solstice) It’s finally the official beginning to the summer and I have two great shows for you to check out tonight to celebrate. The Outer Space is hosting Seattle psych rock act Spirit Award at 7 p.m. ($7-$20 sliding scale). The stereophonic trio will be joined by local musician Gabriel Lubowe from the band Wild Abandon, who will be debuting his solo set for you, as well Arcata garage duo Two Platoon. Ami Dang is a sitar player whose work fuses Indian classical music and ambient sounds via contemporary electronics and sonic manipulation. The Baltimore-based
Spirit Award plays the Outer Space at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 21. Photo by Stephanie Severance, courtesy of the artists
musician will be appearing tonight at the Miniplex at 9 p.m. ($8-$10). The local ethereal sound collective Medicine Baul will also be on the bill.
Saturday The Northcoast Regional Land Trust is holding a fundraiser at Freshwater Farms Reserve today at 4 p.m. This family-friendly event will feature the music of Wild Abandon and Huckleberry Flint in a rare live show since its big holiday to-do at the Arkley Center for the Performing Arts last December. There will be a limited amount of tickets available at the event but be prompt if you wish to attend, this will very likely sell out ($15 adults/ $5 kids). The boys in the band are going their separate ways, in the literal geographic sense of the term, so it’s time for Unholy Orifice to play its swansong at The Jam tonight at 8 p.m. ($5). I will always look back fondly at the many times I reflexively shuddered as I typed out the group’s name and I am sorry to lose that experience. Along for the fun is the black metal band Miasmic, who haven’t played in town for a minute, as well as deth techs Locust Furnace and crusty duo Klod. Parenthetically, I’d like to add that apart from being genuinely impressed by the trio’s sonic output, I will also miss the full, yet concise press packs sent out by Sam from Unholy Orifice and Angry Hammer Productions. It’s been my experience that metalheads really understand the need for good promotion so kudos, pal, and safe journeys.
Sunday It’s another installment of Sundaze at the Jam — tonight’s techno dance will be curated by Paul Leath and go All Night Long. Like many of these Sundaze gigs of yesterday, the show’s free until 10 p.m., at which point a mere $5 gains you entrance through the door. Baggadonuts also has a slot tonight. Come one, come all.
Monday and Tuesday It’s summertime now and with the stu-
dents out of town there is a bit of a slump going on, live music-wise. So may I recommend some books for your evening’s fun? I’ve been putting a lot of eye-time into contemporary weird fiction and can suggest some quick corkers for any fans of the outré out there. Thomas Ligotti’s first two collections of deeply uncomfortable horror stories, Songs of a Dead Dreamer and Grimscribe, have both been compiled into the same paperback and make for great reading. If you want things weird dialed back in the horror department though, I have also been enjoying Karen Russell’s Vampires in the Lemon Grove. Her stories are oddly funny but no less strange. And speaking of strange, Kelly Link’s stories from the 1990s are collected as Stranger Things Happen, and if you have ever wondered how deconstructed sci-fi, horror and fairytales could be funny, then this is the book for you.
Fresh from our roaster to your mug
Wednesday It’s Sci-Fi Pint and Fry night over at the Arcata Theatre Lounge and this week’s installment is a favorite musical of mine from childhood, one whose themes range from sadistic medical professionals to the best organic body disposal unit in the universe. I am, of course, talking about the 1986 iteration of Little Shop of Horrors, starring Rick Moranis, Steve Martin and Levi Stubbs in director Frank Oz’s remake of the Roger Cormin classic. Admission is just a $5 minimum purchase of food and/ or beverages, and, as always, there will be a free raffle. Dig in. l Full show listings in the Journal’s Music and More grid, the Calendar and online. Bands and promoters, send your gig info, preferably with a high-res photo or two, to email@example.com. Collin Yeo would like to say goodbye to an old friend who introduced him to thrash metal and, in the process, proved that early Metallica is actually good. He lives in Arcata.

Mad Tidings We certainly have it good right here in our beautiful, rural backyard. When it comes to arts and entertainment, Humboldt County consistently delivers top-of-the-line theater, art and music performances. You could travel out of the area for such experiences but why waste airfare when you can save your money for the tip jar at the Logger Bar? Keep your currency circulating right here in the same place that churns out the good stuff. Dell’Arte International is one such treasure. Spanning five weeks each summer, the school’s extraordinary Mad River Festival sets the stage(s) for world-class performance featuring local and international students, staff, alumni and community members showcasing professional-level talent and creativity with original plays, comedy, street theater, live music and more. This year’s festival, happening June 21 through July 20, introduces Turning Gray Skies Blue: The Music of Timmy Gray, opening June 21, a concert celebrating a lifetime of work by Dell’Arte’s award-winning composer/sound designer. It revives the powerful Radioman, inspired by the writings of Eric Hollenbeck beginning June 26, and starting June 22 premieres Going Down in Flames, the story of renowned actor and professional clown Joan Mankin, who, while creating a play about a clown with dementia, actually develops dementia.

Men Out of Time
Shaft and Rolling Thunder Revue By John J. Bennett
menu changes seasonally
SHAFT. Isaac Hayes’ Theme from Shaft is a certified slapper (that’s what the kids are calling them, right?). Trouble is, so is John Shaft, at least as characterized by Richard Roundtree in the original movie from 1971. (I haven’t explored the quick succession of sequels, TV movies or the kinda-sorta sequel in 2000, starring Jackson as the nephew of the Roundtree character and directed by John Singleton.) It’s been a while but I remember coming away with the distinct impression that the character was a misogynist and a brutalist, unburdened by morality or emotional nuance. He was a product of his place and time, a manifestation of the abandonment, blight and decay of New York City in the 1970s. Of course, he was also intended as a symbol, an avenging angel against its violent decrepitude. I’ll be the first to admit that I, a white boy from Northern California, don’t have much purview on the cultural context for 1970s Harlem or the popular art that depicts it. But Shaft always stuck with me as problematic: an ostensible defender of his community who plows through it with guns, fists and phallus. So 2019, when we hopefully find ourselves at the beginning of a renewed fight for awareness and equality, seems to me like an odd moment to roll this relic back out. But Shaft is part of our collective cultural consciousness; even people who don’t think they know the theme song actually do. And it’s Samuel L. Jackson, so I couldn’t not go, could I? This time he plays John Shaft, son of John Shaft (Roundtree) — anyone complaining about spoilers can keep it to themselves; he’s in the trailer — a crusading cop who left the force under a cloud and struck out on his own as a private detective. Then, in the ’80s, he found love with Maya (Regina Hall) and they had a baby. Shaft’s milieu being what it was/ is, though, Maya felt compelled to leave and raise the child somewhere safer. And so she did, cultivating in her son a sensitivity and sense of fairness that she hoped would serve
him well. (We see, in a perhaps unnecessary montage, his father’s presence as defined by Christmas gifts of porno mags, condoms and a Lawrence Taylor Super Bowl ring). Her parental instincts would seem affirmed by her son’s trajectory: Present-day JJ (Jessie T. Usher), an MIT graduate, works as an analyst with the FBI based in New York City. He forswears violence, respects everyone equally and shops at the Gap. His life becomes complicated, though, when he reunites with a childhood friend named Karim (Avan Jogia), an Army veteran who has struggled with self-medication. Karim ends up dead under suspicious circumstances and JJ finds himself overmatched in his attempts to investigate. So, of course, he calls on his estranged father for assistance. Together they unravel a frankly hackneyed plot involving a veterans’ assistance organization, a sinister bodega and trans-continental heroin smuggling network. There’s some background noise about the elder Shaft’s old nemesis and a will-they-or-won’t-they with JJ’s lifelong friend Sasha (Alexandra Shipp). And, of course, Maya re-enters the picture. Taken on its own merits, this Shaft is a serviceable if under-written action comedy (there’s violence aplenty, though the execution leaves something to be desired). There’s an attempt to bring the Shaft mythology into the light of the 21st century but it fails, laden as it is with winking homophobia and easy sex jokes. I wouldn’t expect a “woke” Shaft (maybe I should?) but this one’s stuck awkwardly between eras, unable to recognize or acknowledge his own position, straining — unsuccessfully — to contextualize itself.

with his early electric stuff. But I moved on to other things without parsing my relationship to the music or Dylan’s place in the cultural landscape. And so Scorsese’s new documentary struck me as a bolt from the blue. It presents a deceptively straightforward portrait of Dylan and Co.’s 1975 tour with footage from the road and present-day interviews (a number of which are apparently scripted and fake). While the movie doesn’t answer any questions about Dylan’s identity (nor does it pretend to), it captures the sheer magnetism of the man as a performer. The live performances depicted here are beyond compelling, revealing an artist who comes to singular life, eyes wild, face caked in stage makeup, while performing his songs. There’s also a great deal of ambiguity, the staged interviews being only one example. Scorsese goes to great lengths to place the tour within the context of an America in conflict with itself on the eve of its 200th birthday and to subtly incorporate almost fevered notions of identity real and manufactured, of masks on masks. It bears re-watching, even if one only goes back for the songs. TVMA. 142M. NETFLIX. — John J. Bennett

Global Population and Kids By Barry Evans
email@example.com he only proven method for curbing population growth is to eradicate extreme poverty and give people better lives, including education and contraceptives. — Hans Rosling, Factfulness
Quick quiz to get us started. There are 2 billion children under 16 alive today. According to the United Nations, how many under-16-year-olds will be alive in the year 2100? Pick one: (a) 2 billion; (b) 3 billion; (c) 4 billion. Does it help if I tell you that only 10 percent of people answer correctly? (I sure didn’t.) Or you can cheat and look at the accompanying graph. Before I get to the answer, let’s consider the global population in general. At the time of “Our Worst Mistake” (Field Notes, April 4), when agriculture was invented roughly 10,000 years ago, about 5 million people lived on the planet. Fast forward to our second big jump, the Industrial Revolution: In 1800, there were about 1 billion of us. Today, it’s nearly 8 billion. In 2100, it’ll be 10-12 billion. Here’s the surprising fact that 90 percent of us get wrong: The number of children will remain about the same, at 2 billion. According to the United Nations Population Division, the correct answer to the question above is (a). It’ll be adults who make up the vast bulk of the increase. At this point, if you picked (b) or (c), you’re supposed to be saying, “But women in developing countries have huge families, so the number of kids in the world has got to increase, amirite?” You would have been right 70 years ago. After World War II, women were, on average, having five babies apiece, for obvious reasons: In most parts of the world, only half of kids survived to age 5. Several factors have combined to bring the birth rate down dramatically.
Thanks to vaccination, sanitation and clean water, less than 4 percent of children die before their fifth birthday worldwide. (In 1800, it was 44 percent). Global rates of extreme poverty (per the UN definition) are plummeting, from 50 percent in 1966 to 9 percent today. Education, in particular that of girls, has soared. Today, 90 percent of girls and 92 percent of boys of primary school age attend school. The wide availability of contraception means that parents can choose to limit how many children they have, while still enjoying sex. The net result is that the average number of babies worldwide has plummeted from five in 1965 to half that today. It’s true that in the poorest 10 percent of the world’s population (places like Somalia, Niger and Chad) women still have an average of five babies, but in the rest of the world — including Mexico, India, Bangladesh and Indonesia — couples are having two children on average. The bottom line is this: If you are concerned about the exponential growth of the number of humans on this planet, you’ll support every effort to improve the lives of the 1 billion people still living in extreme poverty. Key factors to accomplish this include girls’ education and women’s rights, good nutrition, availability of contraception, vaccination and healthcare, clean water and sanitation and microloans. And peace. Don’t forget peace. Take another look at the graph showing that astonishing decline in birth rates. If that doesn’t give you hope for the planet, nothing will. l Barry Evans (firstname.lastname@example.org) believes things are bad, but that many of them are getting better.

Said sale will be held, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, condition, or encumbrances, including fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to pay the remaining prin− cipal sums of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the prop− erty to be sold and reasonable esti− mated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $204,362.88 If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclu− sive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this prop− erty lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the prop− erty. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this infor− mation. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (844) 477−7869 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.STOXPOSTING.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 077123−CA.

The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

NO. 19−5−00326−1 SEA SUMMONS AND NOTICE BY PUBLI− CATION OF PETITION/ HEARING RE RELINQUISHMENT OF CHILD/ TERMINATION OF PARENT−CHILD RELATIONSHIP TO: JOHN DOE (UNKNOWN) AND TO ANY OTHER INTERESTED PARTY You are hereby summoned to appear within thirty days after the date of first publication of this summons, to−wit, within thirty days after the 13th day of June, 2019, and defend the above−entitled action in the above−entitled court, and answer the petition of the Peti− tioners and serve a copy of your answer upon the undersigned attorneys for Petitioners at the office below stated; if you fail to do so, judgment may be rendered against you according to the request of the petition which has been filed with the Clerk of said Court. YOU ARE HEREBY NOTIFIED that a petition has been filed in this court praying that the parent−child rela− tionship between the parents of the above−named child and the above−named child be terminated. The object of the action is to seek an order relinquishing the child to the Petitioners for adoption and to terminate the parent−child rela− tionship. The child was conceived in July 2018 in California and was born in Seattle, Washington on March 10, 2019. The child’s natural mother is Tabitha Taravella. The court hearing on this matter shall be on the 15th day of July, 2019, at 9:00 a.m. in the King County Superior Court; address: King County Courthouse, Ex Parte Department, Court Room W−325, 516 Third Avenue, Seattle, Wash− ington 98104. YOUR FAILURE TO APPEAR AT THIS HEARING MAY RESULT IN A DEFAULT ORDER PERMANENTLY TERMINATING ALL OF YOUR RIGHTS TO THE ABOVE−NAMED CHILD. NOTICE: State and federal law provide protections to defendants who are on active duty in the mili− tary service, and to their depen− dents. Dependents of a service member are the service member’s spouse, the service member’s minor child, or an individual for whom the service member provided more than one−half of the individual’s support for one hundred eighty days immediately preceding an application for relief. One protection provided is the protection against the entry of a default judgment in certain circum− stances. This notice only pertains to a defendant who is a dependent of a member of the national guard or a military reserve component under a call to active service for a period of more than thirty consec− utive days. Other defendants in military service also have protec−

This notice only pertains to a defendant who is a dependent of a member of the national guard or a military reserve component under a call to active service for a period of more than thirty consec− utive days. Other defendants in military service also have protec− tions against default judgments not covered by this notice. If you are the dependent of a member of the national guard or a military reserve component under a call to active service for a period of more than thirty consecutive days, you should notify the petitioner or the peti− tioner’s attorney in writing of your status as such within twenty days of the receipt of this notice. If you fail to do so, then a court or an administrative tribunal may presume that you are not a depen− dent of an active duty member of the national guard or reserves, and proceed with the entry of an order of default and/or a default judg− ment without further proof of your status. Your response to the peti− tioner or petitioner’s attorneys about your status does not consti− tute an appearance for jurisdic− tional purposes in any pending liti− gation nor a waiver of your rights. You are further notified that any non−consenting parent or alleged father has a right to be represented by an attorney, and an attorney will be appointed for an indigent parent who requests an attorney. You are further notified that your failure to file a claim of paternity under Chapter 26.26 RCW within thirty days of the first publication of this notice or to respond to the petition within thirty days of the first publication of this notice is grounds to terminate your parent− child relationship with respect to the child. You are further notified that if you are the alleged father of an Indian child, and you acknowledge pater− nity of the child, or if your pater− nity of the child is established prior to the termination of the parent− child relationship, your parental rights may not be terminated unless you: (i) give valid consent to termination, or (ii) your parent− child relationship is terminated involuntarily pursuant to 26.33 or 13.34 RCW. One method of filing your response and serving a copy on the Peti− tioner is to send them your written response by certified mail with return receipt requested. WITNESS the Honorable HENRY H.
