Cheers for Charters Editor: We are fortunate to have so many educational opportunities for our children (“Charter School Rift,” Jan. 24). The list of charter schools in Humboldt County is impressive. It seems to me that the Fortuna community is experiencing some growing pains in this area. It sounds like Redwood Prep. School is providing an exceptional learning opportunity for children in that community. Rather than seeing it as a drain on traditional school resources I view it as a way for both types of schools to exist.  Frankly, what I read in the article “Charter School Riff” was a lot of adults whining about their issues rather than looking for ways that the children could benefit. I’m sure that when the adults stop fighting with each other and start working together on solutions they will find a workable solution on the building issue. I am a strong supporter of unions, including the teachers’ union, but one area that I do not support them is in their protection of ineffective teachers. I believe

most people agree with me on this issue. The teachers union needs to wake up to that reality before more families make the choice to switch their children to alternative educational programs. Charter schools are working in Eureka and Arcata, as well as the rest of the country, and they can in Fortuna as well. I applaud the teachers and staff at Redwood Prep. School for the work they have done to create an alternative learning environment. Gail Mentink, Eureka Editor: Thank you for covering the challenges to traditional public schools posed by the charter school movement. Charter schools are public schools. The movement initially started as a public school response to the notion of school vouchers, which would have used public money to support private education. I also thank you for interviewing Thom McMahon of Freshwater School District. He covered key points about how and why the Freshwater Charter School came into being.  In regard to facts about charter schools, it is true that some (perhaps many) do not pay their teachers on the regular salary

schedule or are non-unionized. As a retired superintendent of the Freshwater School District, I’m proud to say that as Freshwater Charter School was being planned by parents, board members, teachers, and administration, it was agreed that the charter school teachers would be members of the teaching faculty of the district and given the same rights and benefits.  Elaine Gray, Eureka Editor: How I wish there had been choices in schools when my children were in school here. Charters have given spice to learning!  How wonderful that schools now offer more than one language. How amazing that one can choose a school emphasizing the arts, when these areas have been deeply cut from school budgets.   The article you wrote about the Redwood Preparatory school in Fortuna smacked of “sour grapes” to me. When teachers that love their work, believe in their profession and take the risk to start their own school when the system isn’t allowing them to teach the curriculum and method they believe needed …

that’s a wonderful thing! No one is stopping any of those children from applying to this school. Every parent can participate should they choose to do so, but few parents choose this. I made time to be active in my children’s schools. I worked full time. The parents that invested their time and effort were a mixed bunch, blue collar and professional. Unfortunately, not enough parents did so. I wish it had been a requirement. Children whose parents do volunteer for school projects always do better.  Instead of negating what this school is giving to this community they should celebrate it as a viable option. Change is good! Time to open up your minds and hearts? Ginni Hassrick, Bayside

Tyson ‘Stellar’ Editor: Regarding the recent article on the arrival of the new Eureka city manager (“Eureka’s New Boss,” Jan. 17), former

Councilman Larry Glass added a “pot-shot” at former Eureka City Manager David Tyson’s departure. “It’s a really big change,” said Glass. “It’s almost like Gaddafi leaving Libya.” Somebody must be pretty bummed out that their bumper stickers fell on deaf ears. In the long run comments like Mr. Glass’ are pretty tired. Any time someone remembers David Tyson they will remember him for the great job he did and how he worked with a constantly diverse and changing group of men and women who filled the position of councilperson. Did he make every council member happy? Well, not Mr. Glass. Those that “worked with” the former city manager, as opposed to “worked against” him should think hard on what their true “intent and purpose” of taking the council job was. As a former Eureka city councilman, I’m sorry continued on next page

Taking Issue on Guns Editor: I am writing to address the firearms articles featured in the Jan. 10 edition of the Journal (The Gun Issue). Terry Robert’s response letter, in the Jan. 17 edition is correct as far as it goes. Some more clarification is in order. The Second Amendment is not about hunting, gun collecting or target shooting. It is about the right of this country’s citizens to assume personal responsibility for their own protection and safety. The problem is we have a growing portion of our society who don’t want to assume personal responsibility for anything much less personal protection. Mr. Bennett, through his article, appears to be one of those. He thinks everyone should have health care but doesn’t differentiate between government providing it and an individual assuming personal responsibility for his own health. And why shouldn’t government provide health care? Isn’t government constantly telling us we are incapable of taking care of ourselves? Congressman Mike Thompson claims to be a hunter and gun collector but he, also, does not seem to know what the Second Amendment is about. He says military style firearms should not be in the hands of us citizens. Every firearm commercially available today is a military derivative. Not just semiautomatic firearms, which have been around since the end of the 19th century. AR/AK platform ordinance have been the most popular firearm in this country for decades. That’s important because the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling, in the Heller case, covers such firearms. Today, there are a myriad of sporting events, training centers and manufacturers producing hunting versions of the AR/AK

platform ordinance than ever before as well as millions of people who own them and use them responsibly. These citizens will be the only ones impacted by gun control, not the bad guys. John Damon, McKinleyville

Guns and Poetry

Editor: Some recent NCJ articles have re-ignited two of my favorite pet peeves. 1)  Barry Evans on “Homers Wine-Dark Sea”: Aside from the etymology of “op,” why has this epithet traditionally been translated as “wine-dark” rather than “wine-colored” or “winelooking”? “Wine-dark” seems like a wonderful metaphor for describing the degree of opacity one “sees” in sea water (opacity or “darkness” is not a color). That scrawny bucktoothed I think that poetic expressions Two parted-down-the-middle are often less opaque (or more Braids sprawled in the strung-between translucent) than scholarly sciTwo weeping willows hammock beside the entific reductionism in the areas of physics or physiology. Sounds Bug murk- filled concrete bird bath better too! Too skinny girl I used to be. 2)  ”Recoil” (Jan. 24) Where in the Second Amendment is Laying in that slung too low hammock there any mention of guns or firearms?  People talk as if this Out in front of Nana’s aqua trimmed were the only issue; even though White brick house in Hickory it was customary to “keep and And the whippoorwills would sing loud bear” arms such as swords, daggers, (and even tomahawks!) in And I’d whistle right back for their answer public during the course of one’s And I’d have myself a good Judy Blume book daily life in 18th century AmeriAnd a big dill pickle and a Coke out of a green glass bottle ca.  Have we forgotten the events And maybe I’d still have my wet swimming suit on in Rwanda in 1994, in which the greater part of at least 500,000 From my all day spent in the backyard pool. people (presumably including children) were chopped into How they’d have to come yell pieces with machetes or clubbed Threaten me to get out for dinner to death?  And while TSA considers a nail file to be a weapon, And the only thing that’d get me out for sure would be thunder and the Pentagon defines public Because Nana always said you could die in the water protests as “terrorism,” and In a lightning storm “iatrogenic events” kill at least 100,000 people a year in the U.S., But as soon as my dinner settled we distract ourselves by talking So I wouldn’t get a stomach cramp about “assault weapons.” I do And soon as Poppa watched the news agree with Marcy Burstiner when And it got good and dark she says most of us are mentally disturbed.

Reincarnating the Pulp Mill

The Harbor District wants to buy the blighted industrial site and turn it green By Benjamin Fordham


ometime in mid-February the Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District is slated to consider whether to buy the long-dormant Samoa pulp mill and try to coax it back to life. And this time, it could be a green life. If the deal goes through, the district could potentially turn about half of the 156-acre site into an eco-friendly business park, research facility and public dock. ”I’m excited at the prospect,” said Harbor Commissioner Richard Marks. “Now we need to find out if the project is sound and financially viable.” A business park would bring in jobs, and a public dock would mean open access to the bay for shippers. Docking fees would generate income for the district, which it could turn around and use to buy a dredger instead of renting one every seven years at considerable expense. According to CEO Jack Crider, the district could use a combination of cash reserves, grants and loans to purchase the property, which is owned by Freshwater Tissue Company. The district currently has $1.7 million in cash reserves, down from $6 million in 2006. The asking price for the

property has not been disclosed due to the ongoing nature of the negotiations. A key element of the project would be an aquaculture business park, which former HSU student Erika Guevara Blackwell has been working to develop for the past 2½ years. When the mill closed in 2010, Blackwell, then a marine biology and oceanography student, approached owner Bob Simpson with the idea. He liked it, and in 2011 Blackwell commissioned a prefeasibility study through HSU’s Environmental Resources Engineering Department. Last year she coordinated a visit by Jan War of the Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority, who concluded that the Freshwater Tissue site “is readymade for re-purposing into land-based aquatic culture operations.” Blackwell’s project came to be known as the Humboldt Aquaculture Innovation Center, with her serving as director. Last year she was awarded a $70,000 Headwaters Fund grant, with the Redwood Region Economic Development Center serving as the nonprofit fiscal receiver. When RREDC learned of the Harbor District’s intentions, it decided to transfer the grant money over to the agency.

Blackwell, meanwhile, has been working in partnership with the Harbor District, the Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District, HSU and local aquaculture representatives to lay the groundwork for expanding commercial freshwater and seawater aquaculture on the pulp mill’s repurposed industrial land. The site has a lot going for it, but there are some potential problems, too. Part of the sales agreement would be to accept the site’s hazardous waste, including 4 million gallons of industrial liquors, used in the kraft process for digesting pulpwood. The liquors could be used by another kraftstyle pulp mill, but even if another mill accepts them, transportation for the caustic liquid could run in the neighborhood of $2 million. “There are a lot of challenges there,” Crider said of the clean-up. But it’s something that needs to happen, according to Marks. “The holding tanks are not meant for long-term storage,” he said. If we had a large enough earthquake and the liquors escaped into local waters, “it would put an end to surfing, fishing and crabbing for a while.” The pulp mill site was purchased by Freshwater Tissue Company in February 2009 with the hope of converting forest residuals into “eco-friendly toilet paper.” But Simpson was never able to secure the funding to turn his dream into reality. For most of its life the pulp mill has been a toxic mess. According to a 1989 Surfrider Foundation lawsuit, the Samoa mill and a second pulp mill on the peninsula used to dump a combined 40 million gallons of untreated wastewater into the ocean every day. But since it was shut down, many locals miss the hundreds of unionized jobs that were lost. “I see great potential for the site,” said Ted Kuiper, a shellfish culture consultant advising the district. As the only location in California with a certified High Health Plan through the Department of Fish and

Wildlife, Humboldt Bay is uniquely positioned to cultivate “spats” (baby oysters and clams) for the West Coast, Canada and Mexico. As ocean acidification increases, the sensitive little spats will need to be raised in controlled environments with high water quality. In 2010, shellfish farming in Humboldt Bay generated $9.3 million in sales and employed 65 people. Of those sales, 16 percent were generated by cultivating spats for export outside the county. In addition to aquaculture potential, there is a large on-site water treatment facility that could lend itself to water-intensive businesses such as a bottled water plant, drywall manufacturing or a brewery. The warehouse space could be used to manufacture green energy products such as offshore wind turbines and wave-energy buoys. One of the site’s biggest assets, according to Crider, is the outfall line, a pipeline extending a mile and a half into the ocean that could be used for aquaculture and water discharge, as a wave energy power conduit, or as an onshore fiber-optic cable landing. Crider says companies that specialize in underwater fiber-optic cables pay up to $1.5 million for a landing site. As far as the research potential, a facility such as HSU’s Schatz Energy Research Center could use the site to study green energy sources such as membrane osmosis or wave energy. “Right now it’s a mess,” Crider said of the site. “It’s been sold, spun off and there are a bunch of old easements.” Over the long term, though, he sees purchasing the old mill site as “a fantastic opportunity.” But the window for that opportunity may not remain open indefinitely. While the buildings have potential, Crider said, they’re losing value as they sit empty, rusting away on the peninsula. He, Blackwell and others are ready to bring the site back to life. l

The U.S. Supreme Court has resolved just how much prayer is OK at government meetings, but California’s law is a fresh and different battleground, according to a lawyer suing Eureka over city-backed religiosity. So yes, the U.S. president can have a prayer breakfast if he wants, but mayor Frank Jager? Well, attorney Peter Martin said the state’s constitution is stricter, prohibiting any kind of promotion of religion. On behalf of Eureka resident Carole Beaton, Martin is asking Humboldt County Superior Court to ban the city from holding prayers at city meetings and from using the mayor’s office to promote prayer. That sort of thing should stop, he said, because article 16, section five of the state constitution forbids promoting religion. Martin said he hasn’t seen any case law that fully interprets that part of the constitution, so this could be a first. Bring it on, said Jager, who by the way


is leading a mayor’s prayer breakfast at 7 a.m. on Feb. 7 at the Wharfinger building in Eureka. “If they want to sue us, fine, we’ll take them on.” Jager said he is definitely holding the breakfast in his official role as mayor, and not as a private citizen. Donations and ticket sales will pay the $700 rental fee for the city-owned building, he said, unlike last year when prayer space was provided for free. After earlier complaints, Eureka clarified its invocation policy in May 2012, asking potential pray-ers to sign a volunteer form acknowledging that courts don’t allow references “to a specific religion, prophet or deity.” Jager said that policy has been followed since, although Martin disagreed, saying a Hindu prayer back in August stepped over the sectarian line. The mayor said Monday afternoon that he hadn’t yet seen the suit, which was filed on Friday and amended on Monday. But he knows the lawyer involved. “Peter Martin, he’s a good buddy of mine. We’ll invite him to the prayer breakfast. And if he doesn’t come, we’ll pray for him.” ●

Unspoken S Dangers Most doctors don’t warn pregnant patients about environmental risks By Jane Kay

Environmental Health News

AN FRANCISCO - When Dr. Darragh Flynn sits down with her pregnant patients, she preaches healthy habits: Don’t smoke or drink, eat nutritious foods and take vitamins. She also advises them to avoid gasoline fumes, pesticides, certain types of fish and some household cleaners and cosmetics. “It’s only for nine months,” she tells them. “Let someone else put gas in the car.” But Flynn is in the minority. A new nationwide survey of 2,600 obstetricians and gynecologists found that most do not warn their pregnant patients about chemicals in food, consumer products or the environment that could endanger their fetuses. More than half said they don’t warn about mercury, and hardly any of them give advice about lead, pesticides, air pollution or chemicals in plastics or cosmetics. Many doctors say their priority is to protect pregnant women from more immediate dangers, and that warning them about environmental risks may create undue anxiety. Some say they don’t feel confident in their ability to discuss the topics. “We’re worrying about pre-term labor, obesity and hypertension,” said Dr. Jeanne A. Conry, an ob/gyn at Kaiser Permanente in Roseville, and incoming president of a national medical society. “Obesity trumps almost everything. We put our time and energy there, and don’t dwell on some of the other things we should be aware of.”

More than 100 chemicals


Virtually all pregnant women have chemicals in their bodies that might harm fetal development. Monitoring of pregnant women found about 100 different chemicals, with 43 of them in all women tested. Lead, mercury, toluene, perchlorate, bisphenol A, flame retardants, perfluorinated compounds, organochlorine pesticides and phthalates are among the chemicals, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s nationwide testing program.


Studies suggest that for many these compounds, low-level exposures in the womb seem to disrupt development of the brain or reproductive systems. Others may raise the risk of birth defects, or lead to cancer, immune problems, asthma, fertility problems or other disorders later in life. Yet that information is not reaching most women who are pregnant or may become pregnant. Almost all of the doctors in the new, nationwide survey, conducted by University of California, San Francisco researchers, said they routinely discussed smoking, alcohol, diet and weight gain. Eighty-six percent also said they discuss workplace hazards, and 68 percent warn about secondhand smoke. But only 19 percent said they talk to their pregnant patients about pesticides and only 12 percent discuss air pollution. Forty-four percent said they routinely discussed mercury with pregnant women. Eleven percent said they mention volatile organic compounds, which are fumes emitted by gasoline, paints and solvents. Even fewer physicians warned their patients about two chemicals in consumer products that are often in the news: bisphenol A (BPA) at 8 percent and phthalates at 5 percent. Nine percent of the doctors told their patients about polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), industrial compounds often found in fish. The results show a disconnect between environmental health research and what the physicians do — and do not — tell their patients, said Patrice Sutton, a research scientist at University of California, San Francisco’s Program on Reproductive Health and the Environment who helped design the survey. The goal of the study, which was discussed at a recent conference but is not yet published, was to try to break down obstacles that keep health messages from pregnant women. For instance, even though the dangers of mercury are well established, only four out of every 10 doctors said they discuss the contamination with pregnant women. Since 2004, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Food and Drug Administration have warned pregnant women to avoid eating high-mercury fish such as swordfish and shark and to limit consumption of albacore tuna. In addition, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists issues statements to its members on the importance of patients avoiding mercury in fish. Yet an estimated 300,000 newborns each year — one out of every 14 — are

Redwood Aesthetic Medicine An estimated 300,000 newborns each year – one out of every 14 – are exposed to levels of methylmercury that exceed the guidelines that the EPA set to avoid neurological effects in fetuses. exposed to levels of methylmercury that exceed the guidelines that the EPA set to avoid neurological effects in fetuses. Mercury in the womb has been tied to reduced IQs and other effects on developing brains. Dr. Naomi Stotland said warnings over mercury could result in women eating less fish, which is a low-calorie protein rich in omega-3 fatty acids critical for a baby’s brain development. “Mercury in fish is a tricky one,” said Stotland, who practices at San Francisco General Hospital and was lead investigator on the survey. “Fish is such a good protein source for women, and they’re probably not eating enough of it. I give out printed materials that direct them to fish with lower levels of mercury,” such as sardines, herring, pollock, shrimp and scallops. “Most of my patients don’t even read food labels. Are they carrying around the fish list? I worry, and I know other colleagues worry, that women will replace fish with processed hamburger. I don’t think it’s such a simple message.” Dr. Jane Hightower, who practices internal medicine in San Francisco, agreed that the warnings are confusing but said ob/gyns should take more time to learn about food and contaminants. “To make ends meet, there are too many patients crammed into the schedule. Food science literature and environmental toxicant literature are difficult to sort out, and the doctors are not being taught about nutrition or contaminants

in school,” said Hightower, who has authored a book and several scientific journal reports about unhealthful levels of mercury in fish. Despite evidence that environmental factors contribute to many health problems, medical students report fewer than six hours of environmental health training, according to University of Texas School of Medicine researchers. “The whole medical establishment needs to look at themselves and start evaluating old practices that might not be so safe for the patient in the long run,” Hightower said.

Class differences Flynn holds pre-pregnancy counseling sessions with her patients, who are mostly middle-to-upper class women living in San Francisco. She gets a lot of questions about environmental chemicals, sometimes from prospective mothers and sometimes from the mothers of young patients. She said the role of the ob/gyn is changing as environmental chemicals are gaining more attention as agents of defects and disease. Twenty-five years ago, “people were not quite as cognizant. Now they ask for the resource, or a reputable website. Before the Internet that was not an option,” she said. Flynn goes further than most by telling women they can reduce BPA exposure by not buying canned foods and beverages with resin liners, and that they can avoid cosmetics and plastics containing chemicals called phthalates. continued on next page • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, JAN. 31, 2013


continued from previous page In contrast, at San Francisco General Hospital, Stotland sees low-income patients on California’s Medicaid program. Stotland doesn’t get the questions that Flynn often encounters. “Most of my patients don’t ask me about environmental exposures. They don’t ask about cosmetic products, bisphenol A or organic foods. Most don’t have high-speed Internet access, and don’t read articles and get alerts.”

Many of her patients clean buildings and houses or work in nail salons, and struggle with staying away from harmful chemicals. She encourages individual solutions such as cooking at home and avoiding processed foods packaged in plastic. She’s trying to push baking soda and vinegar instead of toxic cleaning products. Even though Stotland’s patients are low income and probably at higher risk, she said she wasn’t talking to them about environmental health until recently. Many doctors in the response comments of the survey said they were concerned about making patients feel overly anxious. “The social circumstances are so burdensome. Some colleagues think the patients are already worried about paying rent, getting deported or their partner being incarcerated,” Stotland said.

Some doctors urge stronger role There are many scientific uncertainties about the dangers to fetuses, so clinicians can only proceed with caution. For example, Conry said there is a lot of research on the effects of BPA, particularly in lab animals, but doctors don’t know

how to interpret the results. “So, it hasn’t resulted in a change in practice patterns.” Research on environmental chemicals is difficult for clinicians to understand because it differs from what they are used to with pharmaceuticals, she said.

You can’t completely get away from mercury. … You can minimize your exposure by eating less predatory fish.

North Coast Journal: What are some of the most common environmental health threats to pregnant women in Humboldt? Dr. Cherrie Andersen: Humboldt’s traditional industries are logging and fishing. Both industries have concerns. Deep sea fish are exposed to all the chemicals dumped in our oceans.

continued from previous page are most important for a pregnant woman to avoid in her daily life? Andersen: First, the dangers behind smoking, obesity and unsafe living environments such as domestic violence or drug use far outweigh all these environmental risks. I just want to get that in, to make sure you know what level of risk we are talking about. 1.) If I had to pick a few to know about, I would pick mercury because the evidence that it harms the fetus is overwhelming and because we don’t know if there is a safe level. In Minamura, Japan, children born after industrial spill of mercury in the water had severe developmental delay, limb deformity and blindness. A study done at Harvard in 2008 found that 3-year-olds whose mothers had the most mercury in their systems scored lowest on intelligence exams. A study in 2004 concluded that as many as one in six pregnant women had enough mercury in their bodies to affect their unborn fetus. (Levels of mercury are difficult to check because mercury does not stay in the blood; it is sequestered in the tissues. Also, once it is there, it may be more dangerous to try to get rid of it than to leave it.) You can’t completely get away from mercury. It is in the water in many places, and in car emissions, computers, some light bulbs and some dental work. You can minimize your exposure by eating less predatory fish. Fish that live a long time and eat other fish (shark, swordfish, king mackerel, and tile fish especially, salmon, trout and tuna to some degree) concentrate mercury and pesticides in their fat. That is unfortunate because humans need large quantities of the type of fat that is in fish, especially for brain and eye development. Low levels of those fats decreases the

mental awareness in pregnancy? Andersen: This is a great question. There are so many layers here. First, as I am sure you know, there are the environmental inequities related to poverty. The poor get saddled with homes closer to probable sources of contamination and with the riskiest jobs, like harvesting food sprayed with toxins. Then they have limited access to health care. They get a late start at obstetric care waiting to get on Medi-Cal. They have difficulty getting to the appointments because of transportation issues and long work hours with little protection from being laid off. Medi-Cal pays less than regular insurance pays for OB care. That does not mean the doctor spends half as much time with Medi-Cal patients, but it does mean if you practice in a poorer area, then you have to see more patients to make ends meet. So a patient in a relatively poor area, like Humboldt, might get less consultation, overall, than one in Beverly Hills. Even with adequate time, these patients have concerns that far outweigh lessening their environmental toxin exposure. They frequently have difficulty getting food or adequate shelter. And there is a limited amount a poor woman can do to address the issue. Better-off women who are pregnant might shop organic, or replace their pots and pans with cast iron, but a woman on a strictly limited budget will need to continue to get her food at the dollar store and eat foods that are possibly imported from places with lower environmental and consumer protections or grown here but in a pesticide soaked field. NCJ: What environmental health advice would you give to women of childbearing age in Humboldt who are trying to become pregnant? Andersen: 1. Quit smoking. That is smoking anything at all. Lighting up exposes you to pesticides used to grow the crop and also introduces high temperatures, which create new chemicals in whatever you’re smoking. We know smoking continued on page 16

causes birth defects and low birth weight. 2. Drink water filtered through carbon or a reverse osmosis system. Most pollutants are attracted to the filter substance, leaving the water with fewer contaminants. 3. Maintain a normal, healthy weight. Many chemicals don’t want to be in water — they want to be in fat. So they accumulate in body fat. Some can reach blood levels 100 times the amount in the water a person is drinking. Having less fat gives them less area to accumulate. 4. Chose foods lower down on the food chain: Fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes. When eating meat, choose prey animals rather than predators, and lean cuts rather than fatty ones. Consider a Meatless Monday, when you get protein from vegetable sources like beans and other legumes. Fish is a particular problem. Do not eat any of these types while pregnant: Shark, swordfish, king mackerel, tile fish. Limit servings of fatty fish (salmon, trout and tuna) to 6 ounces once a week. Consider eating lower on the food pyramid with herring, shrimp or anchovies. They have important nutrients but less

contamination because they don’t live as long and are not predators. Walnuts and fortified eggs, from chickens fed a diet high in omega fatty acids, also contain a high level of important fatty acids. 5. Seal pressure-treated wood. Pressure-treated wood is usually treated with arsenic. Don’t use it to make raised beds unless the beds are lined, and seal area decks or play areas so your skin is not exposed to this poison. 6. Do not use Teflon or similar nonstick pans. Use cast iron or stainless steel. 7. Beware of packaging. Don’t microwave in plastic containers or put containers in detergent and reuse unless you know the container is BPA free.  8. Limit pesticide exposure. Try to go organic. If you can’t afford to go all organic, check out a great list assembled every year by the Environmental Working Group, which helps cost-conscious consumers know which produce tends to be least contaminated (the Clean 15) and which most troublesome (the Dirty Dozen). 9. Avoid canned foods. Pick fresh or frozen.

Joel Agnew as Teach, Josh Kelly as Bob and James read as Don in NCRT’s American Buffalo.

To Phrase a Coin Entertaining Mamet at NCRT, Songs at Ferndale By William S. Kowinski


avid Mamet’s plays of the 1980s were warily praised as uncomfortably kinetic portraits of mostly white men jostling on the precarious edge of the American dream. His 1984 drama about a cutthroat band of real estate salesmen, Glengarry Glen Ross, won the Pulitzer Prize. But it was his 1977 Broadway debut that first ignited controversy while making his reputation. That play was American Buffalo, which is currently on stage in an entertaining production at North Coast Repertory Theatre in Eureka. Set entirely in Donny Dubrow’s urban junk shop, the story involves a plot to steal a possibly valuable buffalo head nickel. At first Donny is set to send Bobby, his young assistant, to do the job. But Walter “Teach” Cole, a regular at Donny’s

nighttime poker games, wheedles his way into the action. According to New York Times reviewer Frank Rich, the original 1977 staging (with Robert Duvall as Teach) was tense and brutal, but the 1981 New York production (with Al Pacino as Teach) revealed dour humor and spiraling absurdity. The fast pace set by director Michael Thomas at NCRT unlocks even more of the humor and humanity in the play. These days, Mamet is polarizing for his political statements, and his most recognized recent work is for film and television. But these early plays were also controversial. His characters casually deploy ethnic and sexual slurs, sometimes in absurd combination with what is idiomatically if idiotically called “mature language” (or even just “language”).

Mamet’s language (beyond but including the “language”) is stylized street talk, and it’s the most important element of the play. It’s also basically musical, so everything depends on the rhythms. The NCRT cast ably sings the score. There’s a nice mix of vocal pitches in the three strong voices of James Read, Joel Agnew and Mike Kelly. Kelly has a way of disappearing into his roles, but his Bobby in this play is memorable. Agnew has a reputation for talking fast, and he needs that skill for the mouthy, jittery Teach, who reveals his confusion, desperation and self-doubt with every assertion. James Read as Donny has never been better, and his strong performance re-balances the play, which tended to tilt toward Teach in those first productions. Mamet’s dialogue sounds ruefully or ridiculously authentic, but like Hemingway’s or J.D. Salinger’s, there’s artifice involved. Changing the rhythms changes the meaning. This production reveals a clownish pathos in these familiar, conflicted men as they struggle to negotiate friendship and self-interest while doggedly dodging their final failure. There’s playfulness in these rude arrays of common words, denying and then suggesting that some fitful spirit and residual humanity struggles to survive. Defining these impressions comes later — when the play is on, it is often mesmerizing and consistently entertaining. Calder Johnson designed the set, David Tyndall the lighting, Rae Robison the costumes. Dianne Zuleger recorded some tasty saxophone licks. American Buffalo continues at NCRT weekends through Feb. 16. Reservations at 442-6278. It’s for adults — that “mature language” and brief stage violence.

Athletic, Eclectic Dance Hubbard Street Dance Chicago known for using wide range of choreographers By Stephanie Silvia above Hubbard Street Dancers Penny Saunders and Pablo Piantino in Ohad Naharin’s THREE TO MAX. above left Kellie Epperheimer in Sharon Eyal’s Too Beaucoup. Photos by Todd Rosenberg, courtesy of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago


umboldt County audiences are in for a dramatic evening when Hubbard Street Dance Chicago takes the stage at the Van Duzer on Tuesday evening, Feb. 5. These dancers are contemporary titans. Hubbard Street is a spectacularly trained repertory company, commissioning dances from many diverse choreographers, differing from most major modern companies, which generally work under the artistic direction of one choreographer with a distinct aesthetic. Hubbard became a repertory company a few years after its founding by Broadway hoofer Lou Conte in 1978, the company’s communications manager, Zachary Whittenburg, said In a phone interview from Chicago. In those first years as artistic director and sole choreographer, Conte already drew from various styles to compose his dances. As the company grew in size and popularity, he invited emergent and world-renowned choreographers to work with him, assuring there would be ample material for touring and performing. Hubbard Street often engages the same choreographers for years, granting the dancers and the dance maker time to grow together as the work deepens. The first act of the program to be presented at the Van Duzer, THREE TO MAX, is the work of Ohad Naharin, artistic director of Israel’s Batsheva Dance Company. Since 2000 Naharin has restaged a number of his dances for Hubbard Street, allowing the company

to become fully immersed in his approach. Batsheva and Israeli contemporary dance are known for unflinching athletic daring, etched with intimate details and gestures of vulnerability, as though the dancers’ muscles themselves are emoting. With dancers barefoot and costumed in street clothes, the moody THREE TO MAX looks like a postmodern village of wanderers finding each other through exposing the secret of a shared language. The composition includes portions of two recent Naharin creations, Three (2005) and Max (2007), reworking into a new dance for Hubbard Street in 2011. Act II of the program reveals a progression. Sharon Eyal danced for Naharin and Batsheba for many years before becoming the company’s resident choreographer. Committed to supporting and developing the work of international artists, Hubbard Street commissioned Eyal to create Too Beaucoup. It raised an enormous grant to bring Eyal and an entire creative team — her co-choreographer Gaï Behar, and her lighting, music and costume designers — from Israel to Chicago to work with the company. Very chic, very hip, its loaded soundtrack runs through Gang of Four, Vicious Pink, Depeche Mode, Leonard Cohen, Cole Porter, Vice, Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers and Oren Barzilay. Clothed in fleshcolored unitards, platinum wigs and white contact lenses, this corps looks like a herd of aliens. At the same time, with every muscle visibly rippling or contorting inside the

spandex armor, this group organism couldn’t be more obviously human, eerily so, moving from the robotic to hip shimmying and shaking en masse. This program reveals a dance lineage, Naharin and Eyal, around 20 years apart in age. It should be fascinating to see how the student has grown from the teacher. For those who want to see what is happening in the dance world right now, today, this is the show to see. Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Tuesday, Feb. 5, at 8 p.m., the Van Duzer Theatre on the HSU campus. Tickets $45, child $25, HSU student $15, available online at or by calling (707) 826-3928

ater. The planet is covered in it. Our bodies are made up of it. Here in Humboldt County, we get more than our fair share in the form of rain, rivers and the sea. When it comes to water, one thing’s certain. Whether it’s for drinking, cooking or bathing, whether it’s bottled, boiled or briny — any way you look at it, it’s an inescapable, essential part of our lives. Enter local artist Eric Tillinghast. He looks at water a little differently: He sees it as a material, a medium for his work. Tillinghast’s most recent work in an ongoing series of water-based sculptures and installations will be on display at Piante Gallery in Eureka starting in February. While his creations have been shown throughout the U.S. and abroad, the Piante exhibit, “Fountains,” represents his first major installation locally. Tillinghast has been using water as a major component in his work since the mid-’90s. It was, in a sense, a process of elimination that led him to choose water as his core medium. “I was just finishing school. … I’d gotten to the point where I knew I was interested in making sculpture, but I’d done bronze and I’d done stone and all the different things you do and none of those really felt that exciting to me,” explained Tillinghast. “I realized


that water was sort of exciting to me as a sculptural element and a challenge.” At that point, he began asking himself how he could make sculptures that incorporated or isolated water. “It just sort of took off on its own after that,” he said. The water series began as sculptures incorporating water elements, but the pieces developed over the years. They became what Tillinghast described as “sculptures of water with water.” With his fountains, Tillinghast returns to his earlier, more structural pursuits. The new work explores the technology and history of fountains. “This is a big change in terms of content,” Tillinghast said, explaining that the new work is less controlled and more playful than some of his other recent work. “It’s got a lot more going on, it’s a lot messier, it’s a lot more fun — water splashing everywhere. … It really is full circle. The first couple water pieces [back in the ’90s] were real messy, impractical things.” Still, Tillinghast noted, in his newest work water is “the primary, visceral element.” The Piante installation consists of three fountains. The main piece is a 12-foot-tall “wishing well” constructed of found objects including plastic kitchenware (bowls, cups, plates, etc.) and items scavenged at thrift stores. These materials are painted black and then fixed to a

cone-shaped metal framework. The water gushes from the top and cascades down and through various objects. “I’m hoping it’s challenging and fun,” said Tillinghast. “I haven’t seen a wishing well for many years now, but as a kid I used to really like them.” Visitors to the gallery are encouraged to toss coins into the well, adding a performative element. The other fountains in the exhibition are smaller, thematically similar works suspended from the ceiling. Despite working with water for close to 20 years, Tillinghast said, “I keep thinking of new things to do with it. As an artist, that’s an ideal situation, because as I’m finishing one there’s always ideas for the next one or the next several. … And so that’s what’s kept it moving forward after all this time — that element of discovering new things as you’re working.” The catalog of images on the artist’s website shows a range of his often minimalist, meditative work. In his artist’s statement, he writes, “My primary interests are in our perceptions of water as a natural element and resource, and creating an experience that examines those perceptions.” While his stated goals sound a bit dry (pun intended), the work leaves the viewer with a strong sense of wonder and surprise, as something as familiar as water is presented in new, visually unexpected contexts. Look for Tillinghast’s “Fountains” to add more surprises to this already impressive body of work. “Fountains” opens at Piante (620 Second St., Eureka) on Saturday, Feb. 2, in conjunction with Arts Alive and runs through Feb 23. Gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday or by appointment. To view more of Tillinghast’s work, visit his website at ●

Embryonic Fingerstyle

Guitarist Jorma Kaukonen, plus Marco Benevento, the Black and Red Ball, a bit of blues and music for lonesome birds By Bob Doran


e’s best known as the guitar player for the seminal San Francisco hippie rock band Jefferson Airplane, and as one of the founders of the acoustic blues combo Hot Tuna. But when he was in high school in the 1950s in Chevy Chase, near D.C., guitarist Jorma Kaukonen played the rock ‘n’ roll music of the day in a band called The Triumphs. When Jorma went off to college, he started exploring country blues and fingerstyle guitar picking, working with the late Ian Buchanan. “He took me under his wing and introduced me to Reverend Gary Davis, both literally and figuratively,” said Kaukonen. “Ian really took a lot of time Jorma Kaukonen teaching me; in fact every song on the first Hot Tuna record is a song I learned from him, except for the original ones that I wrote.” You hear the influence of Davis and Buchanan in Kaukonen’s mellifluous “Embryonic Journey” from the Airplane’s Surrealistic Pillow album. With Hot Tuna, his fingerstyle acoustic guitar work took center stage. To this day, he still plays Davis’ Piedmont-style blues tunes — his own way. “Over the years I kind of developed my own style. I don’t know what to call it,” he said. “When people say, ‘What style do you play?’ and they really want an answer I say ‘It’s Piedmont-based,’ but it’s really

singer/songwriter acoustic guitar playing.” Realizing the importance of good teachers in keeping the music alive, he started a music camp/school in 1989. “I have this place in Ohio called the Fur Piece Ranch. I’ve always enjoyed teaching, but one of the things about this is: I get to pass on the stuff that I do. And we have all these other guest instructors, so I get to keep learning stuff too, so it’s a win-win situation for me.” With the camp in off-season, Kaukonen is on the road with Hot Tuna’s latest mandolinist, Barry Mitterhoff, who also teaches at the school. The Fur Peace Ranch Road Show comes to the Arcata Theatre Lounge Wednesday, Feb. 6. Listen and learn. New Jersey-born keyboardist Marco Benevento started out playing experimental jazz in the downtown New York scene and went on to success in the jazz-jam world with the Benevento Russo Duo with drummer Joe Russo. He then explored all sorts of music, augmenting his piano work with vintage synths and circuit bent toys, playing with Garage A Trois and Surprise Me Mr. Davis and in tribute bands: Bitches Brew Revisited (Miles) and Bustle In Your Hedgerow (Zep). See what he’s up to now when his trio (with Dave Dreiwitz on bass and Andy Borger on drums) hits Humboldt Brews on Wednesday.

As if that’s not enough choices for a Wednesday, there’s also the Casey Driessen Singularity Tour at the Arcata Playhouse. Driessen is an accomplished Berklee-trained violinist gone wild. The basic premise of the tour: “One man. One fiddle. One pedal board,” with the fiddler using an array of effects to build tunes layer by layer in real time. Looks good on YouTube: should be cool in person. And speaking of fingerstyle guitar, Australian master Tommy Emmanuel brings his guitar to the Van Duzer Theatre for a show on Thursday. Emmanuel’s picking is directly inspired by Nashville great Chet Atkins — jazzy country, clean as a whistle. Friday at the Red Fox, the players from Talking Heads tribute Naive Melodies front an evening of acid electro jazz with special guests from AfroMassive, MooGot-2, Motherlode, The Hip Hop Lounge, Bump Foundation and Speakeasy Saints. Yes, they’ll play a few Heads tunes, but not exclusively. Saturday night at the Mateel, it’s the annual Black and Red Ball, an evening of jazzy funk featuring Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe. San Diego saxophonist Denson came out of Lenny Kravitz’s band at the end of the 1980s to found The Greyboy Allstars, merging West Coast boogaloo with hip hop and funk. His six-piece Tiny Universe moves the funk ever forward. Opening the show, Humboldt’s newest mega-funk big band Motherlode. (BTW, Motherlode just announced a Humboldt Brews show coming in March when Fred Wesley will join the band. Advance tickets mandatory.)   This Saturday night at Humboldt Brews it’s an evening of “Celtic rock” with Tempest, a wailing hybrid band founded just about a quarter century ago by Norwegian electric mandolinist Lief Sorbye. Local support comes from The Vanishing Pints, an Irish-inspired outfit that draws more from The Pogues than The Chieftans. It’s blues time once again at the Riverwood Inn Saturday night with harmonica ace Mark Hummel fronting Charlie Baty‘s latest band. Blues fans have fond memories of killer guitarist Baty from his years with Little Charlie and The Nightcats. That band split up in 2008 with Charlie going into semi-retirement and harp man Rick Estrin taking over The Nightcats. Keep an eye on the Riverwood calendar — Estrin and The Nightcats are due to play there in March. More blues (and R&B) on Saturday: It’s the resurrection of ShinBone at the Logger Bar. That’s right, guitarist Robert “Swamp Thang” Franklin is back in town to once again join harpist Chas Lewis, bassist Doug Cox and drummer Mike Meyers.

Atmospheric alt. electro outfits Hydrogen Bomb Island and Tabor Mountain are back from a tour and ready to join forces with the ladies of Blood Gnome on Thursday, luring you in with siren songs at Siren’s Song Tavern. Friday evening at the Arcata Veterans Memorial Building, Striped Pig Stringband plays for another barn dance, the band’s first in about six months. Squares called by Portlander Michael Ismerio; proceeds benefit Humboldt Baykeeper. Ba-Dum-CHH Comedy tries out yet another new venue Friday night, bringing the funny to the Bar-Fly Pub on the waterfront. That’s also the night for the monthly Mateel Comedy Cabaret, this time featuring stand-up by a couple of L.A. comics, Dax Jordan and Richard Bain, plus the tantalizing Bada Bing Burlesque review. Bad Kitty Presents is bringing New York City two-tone ska veterans The Toasters to the Jambalaya Monday along with Mrs. Skannotto, a fourth wave ska band from Rochester, N.Y. Heading into their 33rd year, The Toasters have a new record, The House of Soul, out on vinyl on their own label, and a series of 45s on the way. Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers are back in the tour van with an iPhone taped to the rear view mirror to capture more songs like Nicki’s cover of “I Can’t Go For That” (now pushing toward a couple of million YouTube views). Another west coast jaunt brings the band to Humboldt Brews Tuesday joined by Brothers Comatose, an S.F. alt. Americana outfit led by brothers Alex and Ben Morrison on banjo and guitar respectively. Since Mad River Brewing’s Pints for Non-Profits next Wednesday benefits the upcoming Godwit Days Spring Migration Bird Festival, it starts with music by birder Rob Fowler and friends (at 4:30 p.m.) before shifting to The Lonesome Roses (starting at 6:30). If you want the full birder experience, show up at the brewery at 1 p.m. for a guided “Birding Blue Lake Trip” or stay late to see some local owls. That comes at the end of another busy week for Lonesome Chris Parreira. The Roses play Thursday at the Logger Bar, Sunday at Robert Goodman with chamber folk combo Kara’s Lusca, and Monday at the Speakeasy. He’s also playing with The Trouble Saturday at the Eureka Inn (after Arts Alive). And speaking of Arts Alive, the local Native American art exhibition, “River As Home,” opens Saturday evening at the Morris Graves Museum. Music that night is supplied by the Hupa tribe’s keeper of regalia Merv George Sr. While he’s led rock ‘n’ roll bands for several decades, Merv will playing solo, sticking to the Graves’ baby grand. Should be grand all around. ● • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013

Reggae icon Bob Marley turned political in his 1979 masterwork Survival, an album that includes the title track quoted above along with “So Much Trouble in the World,” “Babylon System” and “Africa Unite.” The Survival track “Zimbabwe” was a liberation anthem about the tumultuous struggle to free Rhodesia from British rule. The Wailers performed the song as part of Zimbabwe’s independence celebration in 1980. The Survival record was the first part of a trilogy continued by Uprising. The last in the series, Confrontation, came out after Marley died in 1981. Now Marley’s band, The Wailers, led by bassist Aston “Family Man” Barrett, are on a tour they call the “Survival Revival Tour,” recreating the classic album in full. The band is joined on the tour by reggae historian/archivist Roger Steffens, who accompanied The Wailers on the California leg of the

the run over 40 years ago. Family members recall “when bib numbers were made from scrap cloth pieces he had around his house.” While the “race” certainly has competitive aspects, according to event organizer Dori Fulk the day more importantly promotes healthy lifestyles and is for everyone “from the competitive runner to the casual walker.” There are various course lengths to choose from — 3 to 8¾ miles. If you’d like your day to have a polar bear aspect, be sure to choose one of the longer courses that include a water crossing at the mouth of Little River at Moonstone Beach. Yeah, be that person.

Movie Times candy-trap-setting witch of their childhood, the titular protagonists discover an innate skill and passion for killing witches. They become bounty hunters, roaming the mythical 18th century German countryside in search of prey, wearing leather pants and bristling with repeating rifles and semi-automatic crossbows. We catch up with the formidable siblings as they sign on with the mayor of a village that has a child vanishing problem. Hansel and Gretel do some witch hunting, discover that under the light of the coming “blood moon” the witches will perform a ritual that, er, something or other; doesn’t IF YOU’RE CAREFUL, YOU CAN LIVE THE REST OF YOUR LIFE WITHOUT KNOWING WHAT OSCAR-WINNER HALLE really matter. BERRY DOES WITH THIS TURKEY BASTER IN MOVIE 43. Ostensibly, director/cowriter Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow) has made a modernized, shoot-em-up fairytale: There’s the above-mentioned tough talk and strong bloody violence.

continued from previous page to create a modern heist comedy classic. Of which this is a kind of pale, humorless, muscled-up imitation. Jason Statham stars in the title role as a professional thief with a very specific code of conduct. After getting doublecrossed by some accomplices, he sets out on a brutal vendetta, reluctantly enlisting the aid of a down-on-her-luck real estate agent (Lopez) in the process. Good guys and bad continually commit implausible, heinous acts of violence (including murder), usually in front of witnesses. The plot’s turns are all blatantly telegraphed, the would-be set pieces hackneyed and dumbed-down. And instead of Clooney’s suave, jokey lead presence, we get Statham as one man army, per usual. That last trait I don’t necessarily have a problem with. Statham is an action star in the classic mold, the standard-bearer of 1980s dumb-movie icons like Stallone and Willis. I just wish his people could get him some better scripts. By the time Parker started dragging toward the final showdown, I couldn’t stop thinking about how much I’d rather watch Out of Sight. Or any number of other, better movies. R. 118m. — John J. Bennett


BULLET TO THE HEAD. At 66, “‘80s dumb-movie icon” (see above) Sylvester Stallone is older than Mitt Romney. Or two Ryan Goslings. Or 3½ Justin Biebers. (Those ratios work for size, too.) And yet, since going back to the well with Rocky Balboa (2006) and Rambo (2008), the Italian Stallion has been enjoying something of a late-period renaissance in his chosen mediums of punching and shooting. In his latest he plays a tattooed hitman. End of summary. R. 91m. WARM BODIES. Vampires are so two thousand and late. It’s all about zombies now. This horror-romcom from the director of 50/50 gives life to the undead genre with a clever twist: A cute zombie boy whose brain still kinda works saves the life of a cute non-zombie girl, who sees the spark in his eyes. A romance is born. PG13. 97m. THE IMPOSSIBLE. The cynic in me wants to make a crack about casting attractive white people (Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor) to make audiences care about the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, but by most accounts (including an Oscar nod for Watts) this is an effective tearjerker of a disaster flick. PG13. 107m. RUST AND BONE. From French writer/ director Jacques Audiard (2009’s brilliant A Prophet) comes the story of a single

father who helps a beautiful orca trainer (Marion Cotillard) recover after she’s injured in a tragic accident. R. 120m. Since the Arcata Theatre Lounge opened in 2009 it has become clear that one of its most sacred charges is providing the community with a suitable public venue for watching The Big Lebowski. The 1998 Coen Brothers comedy rewards repeat viewings like no film since The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and this week it’s back for a two-night engagement, showing Friday at 8 p.m. and again Saturday at 9 p.m. And, of course, there will be White Russian drinking specials in honor of The Dude, who, rumor has it, abides. R. 117m.


ARGO. Ben Affleck helms a thrilling and surprisingly funny account of the 1979-80 Iran hostage crisis, starring alongside Alan Arkin, John Goodman and Bryan Cranston. R. 120m. BROKEN CITY. A shady mayor (Russell Crowe in a tux) hires an ex-cop-turnedprivate Dick (Mark Wahlberg) to follow his wife. R. 109m. CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: WORLDS AWAY 3D. Now you can watch the renowned performance troupe contort, trapeze and twirl from the relative comfort of a theater seat. PG. 97m. DJANGO UNCHAINED. Quentin Tarantino’s violent Blaxploitation fantasy about an avenging slave in the antebellum South is the most audacious and entertaining film of the year. Starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio. R. 165m. GANGSTER SQUAD. Despite a talented cast that includes Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone and Sean Penn (as the notorious Mickey Cohen), this picture is all style, no substance. R. 113m. A HAUNTED HOUSE. A Scary Moviestyle parody of the found-footage subgenre, this crude comedy (think ghost sodomy) aims low and still misses. R. 86m. THE HOBBIT. Exploiting the riches of Middle Earth once again, Peter Jackson’s bloated Lord of the Rings prequel (part one of three) looks beautiful but sags. PG13. 169m. LINCOLN. Daniel Day-Lewis delivers a bravura performance in Steven Spielberg’s handsome and rousing biopic, which portrays the deft political wrangling of our 16th president. PG13. 149m. ZERO DARK THIRTY. Director Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) crafts a taut thriller that follows a young CIA agent’s (Jessica Chastain) dogged 10-year pursuit of Bin Laden. R. 157m. — Ryan Burns THURSDAY, JAN.

Britishism Invasion By Barry Evans


recent column in the BBC News magazine about the invasion of Britishisms into American English (Sept. 26, 2012) reminded me of an old Rolf Harris story. Harris was a popular Australian singer-humorist a few decades back, and he was trying to explain the Yorkshire word “gormless” to his audience. It’s like this, he said. A naive young man tells his dad that he’s marrying the prettiest girl in the village. “That’s grand,” says Dad, “but is she any good at, ahem, you know?” “I wouldn’t know personally, Dad, but I’ve spoken to lots of them that does know, and they all say she’s smashing at it!” Gormless. Like “clueless,” only more so. As a limey (from Captain Cook’s insistence that his crew eat limes to counter scurvy), I’m probably guilty of doing my fair share of unconsciously exposing this corner of the U.S. to Britishisms — which is why I get blank looks when I use what, to me, are everyday expressions. Gormless. Snog (kiss, only — again — more so). OTT for over-the-top, i.e. overdone: “I thought his acting was a bit OTT for the part. Peckish (hungry). Knackered (exhausted). Tetchy (prickly, easily irritated). Prat (idiot, as in, “Don’t be such a daft prat”). Wanker (ditto, but can also mean skiver — long “i” — someone allergic to work). Spend a penny (have a pee, from when loos, or public toilet stalls, opened with a now-obsolete penny coin). Nesh (feeling the cold a lot, in northern England; totally stuffed after a big meal, in the south). Aggro (aggravation: “Then

the cop gave me a bunch of aggro about my brake lights.”) Cock-up (screw-up, with about the same intensity). Tup (stupid — I heard this a lot as a kid!). Nookie, slapand-tickle (nudge-nudge-wink-wink). Then there’s that lovely word twee: precious, put-on, when referring to a person, but this slightly onomatopoeic word can also usefully be applied to a place: “Carmel’s nice, but it’s a bit twee.” So it’s quaint to the point of being overstated or exaggerated, like the real life Truman Show town of Seaside, Fla. with its New Urbanism architecture. Spelling is something else I regularly get confused about on this side of the pond. Over 200 years ago, Noah Webster decided to simplify spelling for his countrymen by rescuing “our native tongue” from “the clamour of pedantry” surrounding English spelling. I’ve learned to: write “center” for centre; skip the extra “l” in traveller; spell defence with an “s”; and drop the “u” from colour and honour (Webster long hesitated over this switcheroo, hence clamour). Not that Webster was omnipotent. Locally, he may have won over the Eureka Theater, but pedantry rules at the Minor Theatre and the Redwood Curtain Theatre. It’s enough to turn a guy to drink. In my case, that would be Great White — draught, of course. l Barry Evans ( gets tetchy when the garage mechanic tells him, after fixing the dynamo under the hood and putting a new tyre in the boot, he doesn’t don’t take cheques.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. Dated: 1/14/2013 Professional Trust Deed Services P.O.
