Pick Clendenen Editor: Thank you for the informative and timely article about the upcoming election for the county supervisors (“District Soup,” May 10). After reading it, we wanted to share our view. We have known Clif for over 30 years, in many roles — as a devoted family man, a successful business owner in a fluctuating economy, a concerned and involved community member committed to the welfare of Humboldt County, and, now, as a hard-working and dedicated supervisor for the 2nd District. In the role of supervisor, Clif has demonstrated the qualities that one expects of a truly trustworthy person. He is honorable and dependable —  when he gives his word, he keeps it. He is respectful of others, regardless of their sometimes differing opinions and values. He is very generous with his time in helping support activities that benefit the health of our community, often working long, long hours to do so. He focuses on finding informed, reasonable and sustainable

4 North Coast Journal • Thursday, May 24, 2012 • northcoastjournal.com

solutions to the tangled problems that face our county. Clif has brought a constellation of rare qualities to his role of supervisor that are deeply needed in the times we are living in. We encourage your readers to become informed about the excellent work that Clif has done on our shared behalf, and to vote for him for supervisor. David and Susan Hagemann, Rio Dell Editor: I am writing to express my support for the reelection of Clif Clendenen as Humboldt county supervisor. As leader of a diverse district, Clif has demonstrated  inclusiveness, collaboration and hard work. He has been successfully engaged in maintaining a healthy, vibrant, and sustainable community. He supports local businesses as well as advocating local food production, affordable housing for people of all incomes, and social services for those in need. Clif believes in balancing the investment and hard work of property owners with protection and restoration of our working resource lands, rivers and fisheries. He helped ensure Redwood Transit service for Southern Humboldt and voted for stable funding for fire departments by helping Bridgeville, Fruitland Ridge, Briceland and Palo Verde become fire districts. As mentioned in a recent Journal


article, Clif is working hard to keep Grizzly Creek State Park open, a move that will ensure the protection of this important and beautiful resource as well as encourage traveling families to stop for a time here in Humboldt County. Reelecting Clif will guarantee that Humboldt County will continue to work toward having a unified trail system and a budget that will keep the county’s spending within its means. Join me in ensuring that ours will continue to be a sustainable community. Pick Clif — again. Ellen Krohn, Fortuna Editor: One vote in a board of five, a district supervisor is your personal advocate for what Humboldt County is doing and specifically how it operates. Like your publisher (“My Bully Pulpit,” May 17), I am supporting Clif Clendenen for 2nd District supervisor. I know Clif to be honest and sincere with people. His roots run deep in Humboldt County. What’s that mean for you? That means when you have a county problem, he knows where things are and has the perspective to understand complex issues. He’s committed to serving the district and he’s already “up to speed” with the job and county politics. Clif has the experience to keep our district’s needs on the “front burner.” He’s built the relation-

ships necessary for solving 2nd District problems. Example, last year as president of the Highway 36 Association, we needed quick support for a federal forest grant proposal for funds to make the last remaining one lane section of Highway 36 into two lanes. Caltrans announced the $28.8 million federal grant award in December. It will greatly improve access and safety for the 2nd District for generations to come. Re-elect Clif Clendenen, 2nd District Supervisor.

 

Alan French, Hydesville

Likin’ Lovelace Editor: Along with Journal publisher Judy Hodgson, I support Mark Lovelace for re-election as our 3rd District County Supervisor. During his first term Mark has supported jobs and resources in forestry, fishing and agriculture while protecting the environment. He achieves this balance by a thorough understanding of the issues and the needs of the community as a whole as well as the needs of individual constituents. Mark works long, hard hours for the good of our community and I am honored to have him as my supervisor. We need this kind of evenhanded approach for Humboldt County and will be well served by giving him a second term

on the Board of Supervisors. On June 5 I’ll be voting for Mark Lovelace and I urge you to also. David Glen, Blue Lake

Editor: Your bully pulpit should awaken folks to the political Rex Bohn, who will sell his influence to the highest bidder. Rex’s supporters are virulent developers with a vision of Humboldt that relies heavily on corporate shenanigans. Control of the political process, from Eureka City Council to the Board of Supervisors is another step in their agenda to shape our economy with sprawl development. Rex’s ongoing campaign donors continue to be a “who’s-who of Humboldt County builders and developers.” (“Bohn Vs. Kerrigan,” Oct, 21, 2004.) To understand dangerous Rex and who he represents, look at his record. For many years, Rex ran the operations at Renner Petroleum, which controls access to the county for most of our high-priced gasoline. Rex was vice-president, sales manager, and resource manager at Evergreen Pulp Mill, which was closed after incurring an endless string of health and safety violations including the improper handling of cancer-causing chemicals such as acrolein and chromium (remember Erin Brokovich?). One long-time employee observed that “Our community was basically environmentally raped by Evergreen pulp,” and “Evergreen Pulp racked up over 200 violations.” (Samoa Softball, Oct, 27, 2010.) Rex’s willingness to serve any paying master was never clearer than when he advocated for CalPines’ proposed LNG (Liquified Natural Gas) boondoggle that would have endangered not only Humboldt Bay, but our entire way of life. Rex claims that he only supported a study, but as a CalPine paid spokesperson who appeared on one of their mailers, did he not understand that the study involved an expensive and binding commitment? CalPine went bankrupt soon after being kicked out of the county by thousands of smarter opponents. Rex was also a mouthpiece for the lawsuit against the Coastal Commission, litigated by the fanatic Pacific Legal Foun-

dation for the benefit of Arkley’s Marina Center, which was thrown out by every court from Humboldt to the California Supreme Court. Rex is now working in the soils industry for Fox Farms, despite opposing medical marijuana dispensaries in Eureka. We cannot afford another tool of the 1 percent of monied interests as supervisor, putting profits ahead of the environment and our health. Ken Miller, McKinleyville Editor: The 1st District Supervisorial race may be the most important one on the June 5 ballot. As Judy Hodgson said, one of the three candidates will have to fill the very large shoes of outgoing supervisor Jimmy Smith — moderate, considerate and a gentleman — who tried to represent the interests of all of his constituents. He was often the swing vote on contentious land-use issues: the developerproperty-rights coalition demanding minimal restrictions on subdivision and use of land vs. planned-development advocates pressuring for preservation of prime resource lands (and waters) and minimizing the burden on infrastructure by focusing new growth in already urbanized areas. As a regular witness of this battle for over 10 years, I see former Wiyot Tribal

Chair, Cheryl Seidner, as the best choice not only to maintain the balance we need on the Board of Supervisors, but to help heal the rifts. Few have a stronger connection with the county. She has not been aligned with any of the above factions. She is a consensus-builder. And as a direct descendant of the only survivor of the Indian Island Massacre, few have had more experience with forgiving. Joyce King, McKinleyville Editor: When listening to Cheryl Seidner speak it becomes obvious that she is not a politician. She is much more than that. First and foremost she is an advocate. An advocate for the well-being of all people, regardless of political party or economic status. An advocate for the wellbeing and preservation of our county’s unique environmental niche. And an advocate for a common sense approach to balance between the two. She brings no polished answers to the table, only the promise to listen, ask the tough questions and, in the end, be an honest steward for the people and land she holds so dear. That is an advocate. Can we ask anything more from a “politician”? Greg Jaso, McKinleyville Editor: As election time closes in it seems important to recognize the effects that partisan politics have on our local communities. When I look at how the Democratic Central Committee is melting down (“Dem Schism Gets Real,” May 17) and how Republicans are still trying to figure out their place here my head starts to itch. First of all, city council and county supervisor positions are meant to be nonpartisan. This is our opportunity to choose to step out of the dung that the D’s versus the R’s have made. I must say it worries me when I see the upper level politicians like senators and assemblymen or even fellow supervisors or council members endorsing each other. I would rather see those candidates take all that time and effort and seek the support of the community, the people they represent. The people who create and hold down jobs. The people who are so sick and tired of red against blue. The people who are beginning to see through the charades. The upper level candidates are probably still in need, or so they believe, of the machines that make up the political parties. That will likely be slower to change as that portion of government is stuck quite a bit deeper in the mire. Those candidates however need the example of independent public representatives from the lower levels. The levels closer to the people and more in tune with public needs. I respect Rex Bohn and Karen Brooks for their independent candidacy. It is too bad I can only vote for one of them. They will have challenges like anyone else but they have the best chance of not being beholden to a particular political party. We can’t expect them to solve all our problems or agree with us all the time, but they are the ones most likely to recognize continued on next page northcoastjournal.com • North Coast Journal • Thursday, May 24, 2012

that real solutions come from a variety of directions and perspectives. Uri Driscoll, Arcata

And for Congress … Editor: I agree with Judy Hodgson’s “Bully Pulpit” that Assemblyman Jared Huffman will be one of the two contenders in November. I also believe that Jared is the right person to send to Congress as our representative. Given the complexity of issues and congressional polarity, Jared brings experience and sound judgment to the table along with the necessary skills and confidence to work with Congress in a positive mode. The budget constraints and the current political atmosphere in Washington, D.C., require a seasoned and effective communicator to deal with the issues of economics, education, health care and environment, all of which are critical nationally and locally. Jared has demonstrated his abilities to work with a wide range of political interests to achieve a mutual goal. We need political leaders who have the vision for what is needed to insure equity in the wide range of societal needs, but also who have a clear vision for the future in terms of the natural resources for the country and specifically Northern California. Rather than rolling my eyes at the idea of the Journal making endorsements, I for one think it is a good tradition that should be continued as it shows a strong local involvement and offers another opinion that can be taken into account as we all decide how to cast our votes. Bob Gearheart, Arcata Editor: In response to this week’s “Bully Pulpit” as someone “other than Jared Huffman,” thank you for the opportunity to give your readers a look at my race and my perspective for Congress.  As a fourth generation descendent of a North Coast ranching family, my commitment to the area is unmatched. I pledge to not only open an office here, but to establish a residence in the northern part of the district as well. As a county supervisor, women’s health nurse practitioner, educator, mother and grandmother, I bring a distinctive perspective to problems facing our region. My record of balancing county budgets and finding creative solutions to tough problems is an open book. I strongly support Medicare for all.  As a county supervisor, I spearheaded a county health and wellness campus,

using tobacco settlement funds, which provides 100,000 annual patients visits; developed a non-violent mentally ill offenders program which reduced the recidivism by 85 percent and psych emergency visits by 55 percent and emptied jail beds; created veteran housing and supportive service programs, rural transportation programs and accessed federal funding for building non-motorized pathways; worked for real pension reform while respecting the needs of working families and brought a longstanding feud between a quarry and nearby neighborhood to a mutually acceptable resolution. My vote clinched a landmark Clean Energy program, despite intense bullying from PG&E. Today, we are on the road to energy self-sufficiency. As your congresswoman, I will work for similar programs throughout our district and the nation. I don’t just make promises, I deliver the goods. With your help, I can put my skills and experience to work in Washington, fighting to cut war spending, rebuilding our roads, bridges, schools, and economy — putting Americans back to work in local sustainable jobs. I will fight to end the Bush tax cuts and close tax loopholes.   I am proud to be a careful steward of taxpayer dollars. I declined the county pension program and will decline a federal pension as well. Join me in working toward a prosperous future for all people. Please visit SusanAdamsForCongress. com. I would appreciate your vote June 5! Susan Adams, San Rafael

Editor: Judy seems to be playing coy with the congressional “second spot” in the June election. Since she is saving her bully pulpit for November, I will use mine now. Susan Adams is clearly the best choice for No. 1, never mind No. 2. As a member of the board of supervisors in Marin County, Susan declined participation in the county pension program and car allowance, demonstrating her seriousness about sound fiscal policy and what it means to serve your community. At the same time she has racked up many accomplishments.  Susan stood up to PG&E,

which pursued an aggressive lobbying effort in a failed attempt to defeat the Marin Energy Authority (MEA). Marin citizens now have access to clean energy under the MEA. Susan put forward the Marin Health and Wellness Center, an emergency medical corps which assists in times of disaster, and a “therapeutic justice” program that reduced recidivism in Marin’s jails by 85 percent and psych emergency visits by 55 percent. Perhaps most impressively, she brought a longstanding feud between a bayside rock quarry and nearby neighborhoods to a resolution that both sides could live with, enforcing strict environmental regulations, improving the relationship between the quarry and its neighbors and earning the respect and admiration of all parties.    Susan has spent 33 years as a maternity clinical specialist and women’s health nurse practitioner. She earned her PhD in nursing, has taught women’s health and maternity care, and is an adjunct professor in the Dominican University Graduate Nursing Department. Importantly as well, having a brother who lives in Carlotta who she visits often, Susan understands the issues affecting Humboldt County. Some progressives are advocating for an “activist” to represent us in Congress. We don’t need an activist. We need a doer. Susan Adams’ bona fides, both as a progressive and as someone who can get things done, are demonstrated through her accomplishments.   To learn more go to susanadamsforcongress.com and see the “Adams Agenda.” Et tu, Judy?

Park Jobs Matter

Editor: It wearies me that people like Susan Nolan (“Parks and Offices,” Mailbox, May 10) feel the need to malign public sector employees. Maybe I am hypersensitive because I am a veteran who later gained employment with the state and then the federal government, or because I remain so naïve as to think that stewarding some of the public’s most valuable property is a hands-on way to keep America beautiful. At times, I have even deluded myself into thinking that being a thrifty steward of the public’s land and money is almost patriotic. But, increasingly, I’ve grown to feel that Susan, Grover Norquist, Howard Jarvis’ crew, and the rest of the Tea Party want to drown stewardship of our parks in a bathtub, along with most other government jobs. Although Tea Partiers think that we should dramatically shrink the government, they do not reflect the feelings of most Americans. They are simply a very vocal minority. As a perhaps too vocal hard-working public servant, I love parks and public land, the abundance of which makes the western United States exactly the best place on Earth to live. I’ve been blessed to grow to love many of our state

parks, most of which are unmatched in their beauty. The state’s budgetary demise saddens me and makes me blame Proposition 13 for the problems, not a group of dedicated state employees. The state’s interdisciplinary team, including the geologist, the archaeologist, and the landscape architect, all pour their hearts into their work with no goal other than to preserve the remaining fragments of our indigenous natural and cultural resources. None will become wealthy by working for the government. Because of their work, our parks are accessible to anyone, the facilities lie lighter on the land, and we can understand a place’s history, tread lightly through its culturally important areas, and rest assured that these special places will be here for the ages; difficult tasks anywhere, but especially in our terrain. I’m sorry that some people are so enraged when they ponder their tax bills that they cannot appreciate the hard work done by these public sector professionals. I do.

Brad Job, Arcata

Dog Do’s N Don’t’s

Editor: As president of Friends of the Arcata Marsh (FOAM), I’d like to thank Ryan Burns for writing about the importance (and

legality) of keeping one’s dog leashed at the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary (“Doggy Days, May 17). In fact, FOAM felt so strongly about the issue that we applied for and obtained a grant from a Humboldt Area Foundation fund to print a brochure titled “Humboldt’s Dog-Friendly Areas” earlier this year. The heart of the brochure is a list of areas — managed by federal, county, city and nonprofit entities — where it is legal for dogs to be off-leash in Humboldt County. The publication also explains the effect that loose dogs can have on sensitive wildlife and how their feces can negatively impact water quality. This solution-oriented brochure offers “a carrot, not a stick” approach, by informing dog owners about alternative locations to the marsh where it is legal to have their dogs off-leash. Readers can obtain a free copy from the marsh Interpretive Center, Arcata City Hall, informational kiosks of agencies and groups listed, dog-related businesses (e.g., pet stores, veterinarians, groomers), the City of Arcata’s website (www.cityofarcata. org, type “Dog brochure” in the search field), and soon at FOAM’s website, www. arcatamarshfriends.org. Sue Leskiw, Eureka

Editor: Ryan Burns’ article titled “Doggy Days” was cute and informative but did not address a major doggy problem that many residents of Humboldt County endure on a daily basis; nuisance barking! The Journal should do one of its great investigative reports looking at nuisance barking in the county, including unincorporated McKinleyville. You might find it’s a significant problem and that county Animal Control, at the direction of the Board of Supervisors, has all but abdicated its authority to effectively address this issue. In other words, the action level for addressing barking as a public nuisance is set so high that action is rarely if ever taken. The only other remedy, besides enduring or moving, is to file a civil suit against your recalcitrant neighbor. However, this is only an option if you can find a lawyer who will take your case. Good luck.  The afflicted can find basic background on this issue at the website BarkingDogs.net (http://www.barkingdogs.net/barkinglaws.shtml). Hope can be found by reviewing ordinances enforced by some of the more progressive jurisdictions such as Mariposa County or the cities of Pasadena or Costa Mesa, where nuisance barking is not tolerated, period.

44th Annual Kinetic Grand Championship

Memorial Day Weekend May 26-27-28

The Kinetic Grand Championship has many clever and outrageous teams racing for the glory of winning such a unique competition. Tempus Fugitives, the 2011 Champion team, has four pilots and five builders. The team also has a pit crew, which is a very important asset because they are responsible for general team beautification and the all important task of bribing the judges! Murphy’s is where the team goes for its family groceries as well as provisions for the overnight campout that takes place after the second leg of this three-day race. Kahlua pork tacos seem to be the team favorite. When asked what they liked about Murphy’s, the team responded: “Friendly staff,” “good beer sections,” “I like the deli,” ”We like the meat department” and “Murphy’s has everything we need!” So be a champion and shop at Murphy’s … For The Glory!

We’re Not Stenographers

T

he North Coast Journal does slow journalism. (That’s not my coinage, but I love the image.) Like slow food, slow journalism is nurtured along, given some time, given some thought. Slow journalists seek out the highest quality ingredients — facts, not spin — and we arrange our words carefully, for maximum reading enjoyment, like a beautifully plated dinner. Daily newspapers and television often can’t afford such luxuries. Sometimes they have to toss news nuggets into a paper bag and shove them through a take-out window. Because the Journal is an alternative weekly and aims to deliver intelligent, nuanced articles, in many ways we’re more like a magazine than a daily newspaper. Our writers dig for facts and are encouraged to reach conclusions about what they have learned. There’s a long and robust tradition of this kind of reporting in American journalism. I’m bringing this up now, in election season, because of the spinners. Spinners twist facts. They spin out deft distortions, and try to use the press to dupe the public. A spinner is best served by the fast-food journalists, those on tight deadlines who must quickly grab a quote from one side, a quote from the other, then write that up and run off to the next crisis. Because spinners thrive in this environment, they try to pretend it’s the only model for good journalism. Just quote both sides, they say. Give each equal space. Anything else is “bias.” I’m hearing from some of the spinners and their victims these days, telling me the Journal is biased. The spinners want to spread that perception — they’re repeating it, and some folks are swallowing it. It’s gotten to the point that recently, one woman told me that Democrats were buying votes, and then she gaped in disbelief when I replied, “Get me the proof, and we’ll print it.” She suggested that even if I tried, our publisher, Judy Hodgson, wouldn’t let me. So, in case anyone is else is buying that particular piece of spin, go get your money back. The Journal is absolutely, unequivocally committed to printing what truth we can uncover, and that includes criminal activity by any and all political parties. [Yes, we’ll print it. — Judy Hodgson.] Beyond that, well, there’s a huge difference between bias and discernment. Bias comes from a closed mind. It’s knee-jerk, unfair and ignores the facts. Discernment comes from an open mind. It probes deeply, and is un-

afraid of reaching thoughtful conclusions based on the evidence. The spinners don’t like that reaching conclusions part, because they’re afraid of being caught. As an alternative weekly, the Journal may be a little more transparent in laying out our conclusions, but reaching conclusions is part of what every good journalist must do every day, just in deciding which articles to write and which to ignore, which are worth 200 words and which 2,000. Say you’re telling me the moon is made of green cheese. As a journalist, I know enough about the natural world to decide that is too ridiculous to even quote. So I ignore you. That’s not bias. That’s discernment. Say you’re a county administrator, and you’re asking the board of supervisors to invest $100,000 to fly to the moon to harvest green cheese. I devote 90 percent of my article to outlining the science and evidence that demonstrates what a bizarre idea this is, and 10 percent to your most coherent green cheese babble. In this hypothetical, you do get quoted because you’re in a position of power and public money is at stake. But you don’t get equal space, because you’re clearly nuts. That’s not bias. That’s discernment. And really, as a reader, which do you want? Do you want articles that explain how things really work, who is saying what behind the scenes, what the subtext might be? Why one idea is sound and another perilous? Who profits and who loses? Or do you want an artificial “balance,” where all ideas, all political parties, all economic proposals, get equal space and respect, all mindlessly spread before you as if by a good stenographer? When I was teaching news writing, I used to lecture on the difference between stenography and journalism. Stenographers just write down who said what, without thinking about what they’re hearing. Good journalists don’t. At the Journal, we strive to never, ever, be biased. But we refuse to take refuge in an artificial “balance” that passes no judgment and engages no brain cells. We will call a lie a lie, a crime a crime, an absurdity and absurdity, whether it’s committed by a Republican or a Democrat, a DINO or a Green. Once we have gathered enough information, we will write articles with a point of view, based on everything we have learned. That’s not bias. That’s discernment.

Blog Jammin’ PARKS, PUBLIC WORKS / BY HEIDI WALTERS / MAY 22, 11:58 A.M.

Go Grizz! Whooooo-wheee! Grease up the Dutch oven, knock the mold off the tent, gather up the kids and haul your camping-starved selves over to Grizzly Creek Redwoods State Park. It’s been closed since May 1 because of the state’s budget fiasco (“A Place in the Woods,” May 3). It will reopen in time for this Memorial Day weekend. Moments ago, the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors approved an operating agreement with the California Department of Parks and Recreation that will keep the park open for a year. After that, who knows? Maybe the state Legislature will have arrived at a neat solution. Maybe an asteroid will hit the lovely spot and make other options moot. Maybe the county will decide to run it another year. Under the agreement, county public works staff — in particular, the resident park tender at the county’s nearby parks (Swimmer’s Delight and Pamplin Grove) — will oversee the park; Sheriff’s deputies will patrol; state parks staff will manage hazard trees, regulatory issues and the water system; and the nonprofit Save the Redwoods League will kick in some funds — up to $60,000. You, dear picnickers and campers, will also contribute: by loving the place, visiting it and paying the day use and camping fees. Those fees, by the way, will initially remain at the state level: $5 for day use and $35 per night/per vehicle campsite fee. Instead of using the online reservation system the state uses, the county will allow campers in on a first-come, first-served basis. The camping fees might drop — the board will hold a public hearing soon to discuss lowering the camping fees to $25. As County Counsel Wendy Chaitin explained, the board can’t introduce a new county park fee without a hearing, so until then it could charge the existing state park fee or ask for donations. Public Works Director Tom Mattson said his department can’t afford to rely on donations. Now go enjoy that 1940s vibe of the charming peaked-roof visitors’ center and the ancient thrill of virgin redwoods. And the Van Duzen River, of course.

THE BIG IMAGE ON DAN EATON’S SOLAR SCOPE, BUILT FROM A KIT HE BOUGHT ONLINE, WAS A HIT IN KNEELAND.

Eclipsed in Kneeland

PHOTO BY HEIDI WALTERS.

Eclipsers mobbed Kneeland Airport and the surrounding bucolic countryside Sunday evening to watch the annular eclipse. Meadowlarks sang and the people sprawled their picnicking selves all over the rolling green goodness. On the tarmac, the fabulous Astronomers of Humboldt and assorted other sky nerds — bless them! — brought assorted contraptions for viewing the annular eclipse. Dan Eaton brought his nifty solar scope, a $62 kit he bought online (its huge image was the hit o’ the eclipse). Sun Frost fridge maker Larry Schlussler brought his low-tech cardboard, tape and reflective mirror gizmo, which cast a nice sharp image. Michael Quinlan, Kneeland School teacher and principal, brought three long, wood scopes he and the kids made at school (they kept one and gave one to Garfield School and one to the astronomy club). Of course some people used those elusive glasses (why didn’t local stores stock up on more of the darned things?). Others had welding masks and welding mask filters mounted onto cameras. Telescopes. Binoculars. And champagne boxes. Everyone clapped when the ring of fire appeared. (Yes, it was kind of cloudy, but you could see it through some scopes.) “Well?” said a guy as the ring changed to a crescent and the smoky eclipse low light slowly traded places with sun and cloud. “Did they speak to anyone? Did anyone receive a message?” A woman standing apart from it all said she did almost expect the moon people to come down. Then the meadowlarks burst back into song. And everyone fled back down the hill. Slowly. Traffic-jammed. ●

Queen Sohotshe Burns! Gloriously defying conventional wisdom, Sohotshe Burns (known on Earth as Wendy Burns) was crowned the 2012 Rutabaga Queen before a raucous crowd at Arcata’s Portuguese Hall on Saturday Night. In the end, the much hyped “Year of the ‘Picker” was not to be. Next year, Johnny. Next year. Queen Sohotshe will go on to be the royal face and head cheerleader for this year’s Kinetic Grand Championship next weekend. The annual Rutabaga Ball was (as always) a colorful, over-the-top affair, as evidenced by the oddness on our website. ● COMMUNITY, EEL RIVER, GOVERNMENT / BY HEIDI WALTERS / MAY 17, 12:38 P.M.

Ferry or Bridge? A couple winters have passed since the federal department of transportation awarded $120,000 to Humboldt County to make improvements to the McCann Ferry — a couple of winters, and numerous high-water boat trips back and forth across the Eel River by the intrepid boatman and handful of residents who live on the cut-off side of the river. When the water rises high enough to inundate their low-lying bridge, they have to rely on that ferry boat to get to and from work, school, shopping and everything else.

When the winter rains are over — usually by June — the bridge, which is partly just a gravel ramp, emerges, and they can drive across it again. The award — among $39 million total in grants to ferry systems across the United States announced in October 2010 — is to be used to put in ADA-compliant ramps and launches, construct a waiting area for passengers and the ferry operator, and buy a new boat, motor and safety equipment. Well, wondered resident Trisha Whitlow recently, where are the improvements? “Just to let you know we have not seen one cent of that grant,” Whitlow wrote last month on the Journal‘s website. “They fixed a different trail with pea gravel but it is not much for some one that can hardly walk down.” It turns out, however, that Whitlow and her grandfather, Oral Whitlow (“Papa”), have had just enough time, waiting on the ferry improvements, to ponder what they’d really like to see happen. “The current boat is only four or five years old,” Trisha said when we called her up this week. “And Papa says a boat lasts 10 years. That county boat is still in mint condition. Papa said we don’t need the money for a new boat at all, or an engine. And the ADA compliant ramp and launches they were talking about putting in? Papa says that’s ridiculous, because they want to put them in the creek — and when creek is up, the ramp would wash out. Why not use the grant instead to put an extension on the bridge?” It’s an old argument. The bridge ends about midway across the river, and a gravel ramp completes it. Trisha Whitlow says her grandfather spent thousands of his own dollars studying and drawing up plans for extending the bridge, and he has


the equipment to do the work. But the county board of supervisors killed the idea of extending the bridge, or building a new one, long ago, after one option triggered a lawsuit and another proved too costly. Unless the board revives the issue, it’s still dead, said Public Works Director Tom Mattson this week by phone. Besides, the grant money awarded the county for ferry improvements can’t be used for anything else. (For more on this, you can read the Journal‘s “The Other Side of the River,” March 24, 2011.) As for the promised improvements — these things take time. Hoops to jump through, approval letters to receive, maps and studies and permits. … The county only just now has been cleared to enter the environmental review phase. “It will probably be next summer before any construction begins,” Mattson said. And it won’t be a bridge. ● MEDIA / BY ANDREW GOFF / MAY 16, 4:10 P.M.

But first, a little background on this scene from last week’s ‘sode: As part of (we’re guessing) a far-from-standard plea deal, FBI Special Agent David Rossi (Joe Mantegna) must visit an incarcerated serial killer once a year to get the name and location of the bodies of girls killed while the murderer was still at-large.

Anywho, watch the video on our website and then change your Memorial Day weekend Humboldt hiking plans. … As long as we’re talking about bits of Humboldtness on the national stage, we’ll just mention that famous local bigfoot hunter Bobo was featured on The Colbert Report a couple weeks back. Sure, Bobo is one of the stars of Finding Bigfoot, now in its second season. But, c’mon. Face time on Comedy Central trumps Animal Planet appearances any day. Bobo is part of the team assigned the task of finding an elusive Florida “Super PAC-er.” (It’s near the end.) Hmm, anything else local goin’ huge?

PETS / GUEST POST / MAY 21, 3:41 P.M.

Your Dog is Dead Guest post from Mark Dondero of Orleans, the land of abandoned dogs: This is an open letter to whoever abandoned a German shorthair pointer named Toby in Orleans, Calif., on St. Patrick’s Day, 2005. Your dog is dead. Actually, once you kicked him out of your car and he found his way to our house, he became our dog. He had a red collar with a piece of foil tucked under it. Inside the foil was this note on a piece of yellow steno notepad paper: HI MY NAME I TOBY I cAn’t live in the city Anymore. Im A good dog, I don’t cHAse cAts I get Along good with kids & oTher dogs unless They sTArT something. I Like to chAse sticks & dirt clods. That was all true. He was a good dog. He had a great time swimming after sticks I’d throw into the Klamath River for him. He loved to go on walks, run, dig after rodents in the field, ride in the back of the truck with his ears flapping in the wind, camp, eat biscuits, be petted. Our neighbor kid loved him. He didn’t like the meter reader or the propane delivery guy, but he loved Bob from Renner Petroleum whenever he delivered kerosene for our heater. He was a great watchdog and barked at everything and everyone. He was lively and playful right until Mother’s Day this year when he was very lethargic and wouldn’t eat. I took him to the vet the following day and an X-ray showed his lungs were full of tumors. We tried a course of antibiotics and diuretics, but by last Wednesday (May 16) it was obvious he wasn’t getting any better, so I called the vet and told him come prepared to give Toby the spike when he was in Orleans the following day. Toby, always considerate, saved us all the trouble by having a seizure Wednesday night. He fell over on the living room floor, kicked his legs a few times and died. We buried him the following day on our property under the shade of a big leaf maple tree, close to his friends, the Airedale and the border collie mix. He will be missed. ●

Exposing this east-west rail nonsense before it gathers steam By Ryan Burns

14 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, MAY 24, 2012 • northcoastjournal.com

nside his carpeted Eureka offices, attorney Bill Barnum stood before a large map of the city and pointed to the upper right corner. “See who the author is?” he asked. The map, a handsome, sepia-colored lithograph, was created in 1938 by J.N. Lentell, a civil engineer and surveyor who first came to Humboldt County in 1891. All these years later, the map still fills Barnum with joy. “This is one of the most fun things you’ll ever look at if you really care about local history,” he said with a grin. Gazing at the framed print, Barnum spoke whimsically about the city’s rugged early industrial days, when all you needed to succeed was hard work, an idea and the money to see it through. Pointing to a rectangle near downtown he said, “My great-great-grandfather is the guy who founded this one, the Gross tract.” Barnum, 57, is deeply enamored of the past. “The history of things really imparts to me a lot of meaning,” he said. For several months now, Barnum has been meeting regularly with a group of likeminded men — conservative, middleaged history buffs who want to resurrect a 19th century idea and transform it into a reality here in the 21st. They’re promoting the notion of building a new railroad east from Humboldt Bay, 125 miles up and over the coastal mountains to connect with the national rail system in Gerber, south of Red Bluff. The idea dates to the late 1800s, and the route they imagine for the line was first reconnoitered in 1909 by J.N. Lentell, the man who drew Barnum’s beloved map (see sidebar, pg. 16). Barnum himself advanced this idea more than 20 years ago. Then chairman of the Humboldt Bay Alliance for Economic Development, he advocated the project as an alternative to the landslide-plagued Eureka Southern line, which ran north-

south. That line was later wiped out by storm damage in the winter of 1998-99 and remains severed with no credible plans for restoration on the horizon. Before the sounds of one train fantasy had faded, another came roaring in. The east-west train idea has been gaining steam in recent months, with fuel provided by Eureka kazillionaire Rob Arkley. In a March 1 radio interview on KSLG he described himself as a one-man engine. “I have done a fair amount of work on this and spent my own money and dealt with people at high levels.” He said he’d spoken to Union Pacific Railroad reps, private equity fund managers, “the Chinese,” and government officials in both Sacramento and Washington, D.C. A spokesman for Union Pacific would say only that the company has been approached about a potential rail project. Later that month Arkley went on KINS and declared that the project will not only turn Humboldt Bay into the first green port in the world, it will revitalize the entire region. “This is 1,000 to 1,500 union jobs, wealth being created in this county unlike anything we’ve seen; our kids will stay here; we will have our future again.” Now, local governments are climbing aboard, with the City of Eureka donning the engineer’s cap. On Feb. 23 the City Council voted unanimously to pursue community development block grants from the state to pay for a feasibility study. The city has also hired former Harbor District CEO David Hull as a consultant to help gather political support from neighboring counties. The county

Board of Supervisors has agreed to hear a presentation on the feasibility study. And Arkley suggested in a radio interview that he’ll ask the public Headwaters Fund to pay for that study. On April 12, government and business leaders were invited to an economic development forum put on by the Humboldt Economic and Land Plan (HELP), a shadowy, Arkley-backed group. There, Eureka City Manager David Tyson said that while he was once a skeptic, how’s now a believer. In Humboldt County, where the economic glory days of large-scale timber production are fading from memory and where our geographic isolation has only increased in recent years, this idea is enticing. Imagine our port bustling with business from the global marketplace. Ships loaded with Asian goods docking in our harbor, the freight being loaded onto eastbound trains. Goods from the American heartland arriving via rail and getting crane-lifted onto ships bound for Shanghai, Osaka and Cartagena. Our own goods flowing outward to the world. And jobs. Everywhere, jobs. It’s an alluring fantasy. Unfortunately, the challenges facing such an endeavor are so monumental, the money required to realize it so astronomical, that the eastwest train is likely to remain mere fantasy for many, many years.

Let’s take a look

at a few of the challenges, starting with a big one: To date there has been scant evidence to suggest the railroad would have enough

customers to justify the tremendous cost of building it. County Supervisor Mark Lovelace noted as much at a recent meeting. “I’ve heard all sorts of claims about this, about the market need, and I’ve asked repeatedly, one person after another, and I’ve not been able to find anyone who can give me a specific name or product or quantity of freight or anything about what would actually be shipped on this line.” Proponents cite a list of “missed opportunities.” Hull, the former Harbor District CEO, said that in the last few years alone, Humboldt County has lost out on roughly $25 million in economic value because we lack a rail connection. Asked for specifics, Hull said the biggest fish to get away was a company named Pasha that was looking for a West Coast port through which to ship cars to Asia. “It was about $21 million, I believe, of what we call economic value to the community — jobs, tugs, stevedores,” Hull said. He also cited a wind farm project east of Redding that needed parts imported, and iron ore exports from Colorado (both of which wound up going through the Port of Stockton). It’s not clear that the Port of Humboldt would have landed the Pasha contract even with an active rail line. Michael Pasha, the company’s general manager, said company management considered 10 different ports. It ultimately chose the Port of Grays Harbor in Washington, but according to Gary Nelson, executive director of that port, Pasha’s contract is not the type that would justify a new rail. continued on next page northcoastjournal.com • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, MAY 24, 2012

“It’s real transitory by nature,” he said. There’s not a lot of portside infrastructure required to export automobiles, and since shippers are always looking for the cheapest reliable alternative, Pasha could decide to relocate with little or no warning. Other industry experts agreed. “Ports and harbors really don’t dictate where commodities move,” said Martin Callery, chief commercial officer for the Port of Coos Bay. “Shippers and steam ship lines have more to do with that than anything else.” In order to be financially stable, a port needs either a steady stream of bulk commodities (such as coal, grain or liquefied natural gas) or dedicated local industrial operations (sawmills or factories). Even with those in place, ports can fall prey to factors outside their control. Southern Pacific Railroad owned the Coos Bay branch line for almost 100 years before selling it to a smaller company in 1994. Callery said Class One railroads like Southern Pacific have mostly divested of short lines. “They want to move long trains long distances.” As timber and industrial shipping declined, traffic on the Coos Bay line grew thin. Over the last decade, Rail America, the company that purchased the Coos Bay line (among many others in North America) allowed the tracks to fall into disrepair. In 2007, Rail America shut down the Coos Bay line completely, leaving the port with only trucking options — just like Humboldt. “Over the last four or five years we’ve been able to access about $31 million in federal and state project money, so we are in the process of rehabbing the rail line,” Callery said. But, he added, local industry helped leverage that public funding. Coos Bay still has two sawmills, an industrial mineral processing company and a plant that manufactures components for bridges, all of which will use the rail connection. “Had we not had existing industrial infrastructure here we would have been hard pressed to justify federal and state funding for rehabbing the line.” Humboldt County has no such local demand. Jacqueline Debets, the county’s economic development coordinator, regularly speaks with business leaders from the region’s “targets of opportunity” — the eight local industries where jobs and wages have been steadily growing. “None of ‘em say we need rail,” Debets said. continued on page 18

Railroad!

Proposed lines ‘set rich blood a-tingling’ in early 1900s By Jerry Rohde

T

he current buzz about building a new railroad is nothing new for the North Coast. A century ago, the promotion of rail lines to the north, south and east often filled the headlines on a weekly, or even daily, basis. It was a time when optimism and speculation ran rampant. By December 1909 one plan was clearly ahead in the race: the Northwestern Pacific Railroad (NWP) was already laying track up the Eel River, and had just let a new construction contract that would help close the 108-mile gap between Shively and Willits. But a competitor was preparing to take the field. Several months earlier, Eureka surveyor J. N. Lentell had hiked from Korbel to Redding, armed with a barometer, compass and a pair of pocket-sized notebooks. His route took him through the heart of the Trinity National Forest, which had been established just two years earlier. Lentell filled his notebooks with rough calculations for the possible route of a railroad. The results were favorable, and on Dec. 12, 1909, just four days after the NWP authorized the Shively work, Lentell set off to retrace his steps. This time he was accompanied by two officials from the Humboldt and Eastern Railway Committee. Before the month was out the Eureka Herald, stimulated by all the excitement, issued a special “Railroad Edition,” complete with a half-page rendering of a powerful locomotive propelling its train of cars through a redwood forest. The text that followed read like triumphal

trumpet blasts: “RAILROAD! “That is the most magnetic word in Humboldt County’s vocabulary today. … “RAILROAD! “It is the one word in the English language which today sets the rich red blood a-tingling through the veins of Humboldters.” Next came a page devoted to details about the Northwestern Pacific. The Herald believed that the NWP “will keep right on up the coast and build to Portland.” There then followed an article entitled “Humboldt will have an electric road to the East.” This rail line, although unnamed, was clearly the Humboldt and Eastern. It was to be powered not by steam but by electricity, which accounted for the presence of two officers from the Humboldt Gas and Electric Co. on its promotional committee. Other members included bank presidents William S. Clark and Thomas Bair, superior court judge George D. Murray, and merchandise store magnate Brousse Brizard. The article condescendingly claimed that “What an electric line to the east will mean to Eureka and Humboldt County is a question that is too big for Humboldt citizens to comprehend.” Nonetheless, the Herald tried to create at least a dim awareness within the humble Humboldt citizenry of the blessings that would flow down the Humboldt and Eastern’s tracks. Farmers, ranchers and miners would of course all benefit, but also sportsmen and those sometimes sweltering inhabitants of the Sacramento valley, who, desiring “a breath of salt air,”

would soon be able to “jump onto an electric and run down to Eureka.” But the main motivator for creating the Humboldt and Eastern was the same as that for all the other proposed rail lines — access to timber. The Northwestern Pacific, following its north-south route, ran through much of the coast redwood belt, but an east-west railroad entered an entirely different and potentially lucrative realm: the pine forests that lay beyond the redwoods. The Herald foresaw that: “With an electric line opening up the eastern timbered territory it will mean that all that business comes down a natural grade to this city and is from this point shipped to the various marts of the world. The completion of the Panama Canal will put this coast in closer touch with the Atlantic seaboard. … Millions of dollars of wealth will be carried through Eureka.” But first millions of dollars had to be expended to build the rail line. By April 1910 the Humboldt and Eastern Electric Railroad, as it was now called, estimated that connecting Humboldt Bay with the upper Sacramento valley would require a route 175 miles long and would cost $11 million, an amount equal to about one billion dollars today. This wasn’t chicken feed, and the Humboldt and Eastern was not going anywhere until it devised a reliable form of funding. The plan was to leverage the

necessary investment based on the anticipated freight fees that would accrue from hauling Trinity National Forest timber. The Humboldt and Eastern submitted a proposal to the government asking that it “sell all the ripe timber in the forest, estimated at 3,000,000,000 feet, for $4,500,000, so that there will be [shipping] tonnage over … [the] railroad.” The government had a different idea. It offered only a billion feet of Trinity timber, just a third of what the railroad wanted. When, in April 1911, this amount was put out to bid, there were no takers. The Humboldt and Eastern claimed it would continue its fight for a sale of 3 billion feet, but the effort proved unsuccessful. By 1913 the proposed line was abandoned. A switch was turned, and the Humboldt and Eastern rolled onto a siding called obscurity. ●

“Even the lumber industry doesn’t want to use the train. … They’re happy with trucks.” The Harbor District’s new CEO, Jack Crider, understands the fickle nature of rail-based commerce on the West Coast. As executive director of two Oregon ports — Tillamook Bay, then Astoria — he saw firsthand how vulnerable port commerce is to instability — economic instability as well as Mother Nature’s. Around the turn of the 21st century, Tillamook, like the Port of Coos Bay, was largely shunned by Southern Pacific. The mainline operator wasn’t making money off car-hire agreements with regional railroads. “They need fully loaded cars all the time,” Crider said. “To supply them 100 miles away from the main line costs the Class Ones money.” To stop the bleeding, Southern Pacific adjusted rates to encourage trucking, and train traffic evaporated overnight. Two months after Crider left Tillamook, the line blew out. It has not been rebuilt. When Crider arrived in Astoria, the port’s shipping business had dwindled to about 500 rail cars per year. “We built it back up to over 5,000 cars, and we were still struggling. Even at 5,000 cars a year we were still struggling to make that thing pay,” Crider said. Not only was rail business capricious, but mudslides and washouts kept damaging the line’s tunnels and bridges. “We spent $30 million on that railroad, and it never ended,” Crider said. Crider has grown skeptical of the sustainability of rail lines connecting to smaller ports, to say nothing of building one from scratch. “They just invested a ton of money in the Coos Bay line, and I’d bet anything that 10 years from now that thing’s gonna be history, too,” he said. If the Port of Humboldt wants to rise above the economic turbulence that buffets other small ports, it would require not only a reliable rail line — one that rarely if ever falls prey to washouts, landslides or collapsed bridges and tunnels — it would also need a reliable supply of commodities in volumes large enough to consistently fill rail cars moving in both directions. There are rumors that Arkley has a connection with a coal interest in Wyoming. Most bulk commodities leave the West Coast through the Port of Stockton, but Coos Bay and five other ports in the northwest are pursuing a deal to build a new coal export terminal. David Koch, act-

ing CEO of the Port of Coos Bay, told Oregon Public Broadcasting that the terminal would export up to 10 million tons of coal per year. It would be extracted from the Powder River Basin in Wyoming and Montana and shipped to Asian markets, where demand has been growing. Environmental groups oppose the efforts, citing the health and environmental impacts of coal dust and diesel emissions. The ports pursuing coal exports are engaged in talks with international players. In Coos Bay, port officials are actively negotiating with a terminal operator (Metro Ports), a mining company (Mitsui) and an unnamed Asian electrical company. In Humboldt County, the only documents supporting the east-west rail idea are J.N. Lintell’s 103-year-old field notes. Last fall, the Harbor District considered and swiftly rejected a proposal to spend $275,000 in federal transportation money on a feasibility study. District Chair Mike Wilson said there was “no basis in policy or fact” to justify spending that much in limited resources. In his KSLG interview, Arkley claimed that research has been done, but his representatives declined to provide any documentation. No one has even offered to pay for the feasibility study. “The City of Eureka was very, very specific that they weren’t going to spend any general fund money on this at all,” said Hull, the city’s consultant. “And everywhere I’ve gone it’s the same thing,” The city is spending money on Hull’s consulting contract — not to exceed $1,500, according to City Manager David Tyson. And Tyson has spent the city’s

time and money promoting the idea to neighboring jurisdictions. (In February he rented a car and drove to Red Bluff, where he gave a PowerPoint presentation to Upstate California, a regional marketing group. Travel expenses came to $331.). Plenty of agencies have given moral support. The boards of supervisors in Trinity and Tehama counties have joined the call for a feasibility study, as have local unions, the Humboldt Redwood Co., the Greater Eureka Chamber of Commerce, the Wiyot Tribe, the Northwestern Pacific Railroad and officials from both Shasta-Trinity and Six Rivers National Forests. But none has chipped in so much as a dime.

Assuming someone does

pony up $250,000 or more for a feasibility study, what exactly will it tell us? Hull says it will answer a number of key questions: Can the railroad physically be built? What’s the best route? Who owns the land along the way? Who might operate the line? What are the permitting needs and environmental issues? How long will it take to build? And how much will it cost? Lovelace said all of these questions are irrelevant until market demand has been established. “I have no doubt that for some amount of money a railroad can be built,” he said at the May 8 supervisors meeting. The feasibility study would not analyze demand, nor would it address a slew of other key issues — who might pay for the project, what port improvements might be required, how much the route would cost to maintain, and how much traffic would be necessary to keep it financially viable while paying off the debt. Setting all that aside for a moment, let’s consider the challenges of simply building the thing. The first step would be establishing a right of way through multiple private tracts and two national forests. Unless government agencies seize the land via eminent domain, project proponents

would need to entice every individual landowner to allow freight trains through their property on a regular basis. Then the general public would need to be convinced to let trains through both the Shasta-Trinity and Six Rivers national forests. Chris Neary is the attorney for the North Coast Railroad Authority (NCRA), the public agency that owns the defunct north-south route through the Eel River canyon, so he knows a bit about regulatory struggles. “Getting the public to agree that you can use the national forest, I see that as a 10-year process,” Neary said. Project plans would need to satisfy both the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). And the railroad would have to cut a swath through miles of rugged forestland without running afoul of the Endangered Species Act. Local watchdogs are already dubious. “It would be an environmental disaster,” said Andrew Orahoski, conservation director for the Environmental Protection Information Center (EPIC). The route would invade the habitat of several species on the brink of extinction, he said. And then there’s the geology. “You can imagine a rail line being built on some of the most unstable ground in the whole country,” he said. In northern California and southern Oregon, the Pacific Coast Ranges are riddled with a sticky, gravelly clay called “blue goo.” Deposited by mudstones in the region’s geologic shear zones, the goo has a bluish-gray color and tends to bend and buckle like plastic. Its presence in the Eel River canyon is largely responsible for the failure of the north-south rail. It’s also found in South Fork Mountain, which lies between Eureka and Gerber. Bill Kier is a natural resources policy consultant who has worked for the Department of Fish and Game and directed the state Senate’s office for research and policy development. Now a board member on the NCRA, Kier said he finds the east-west rail idea unrealistic, to say the least. “Based upon my 50-year-long career in natural resources and environmental policy, I find approval of a project of this scale — across two national forests — absolutely unfathomable,” Kier said. Then there’s the port, which is currently not equipped to handle the volume of

shipping traffic a successful rail line would require. “If you’re gonna make several hundred million dollars’ worth of investment to build a new rail line, you’ve also got to have it here on the terminus side,” said Crider, the Harbor District CEO. Eel River currents are constantly depositing sediments into Humboldt Bay. In order to maintain adequate channel depth, the Army Corps of Engineers must regularly dredge the harbor. A steady flow of shipping traffic would increase the dredging demands, especially as the shipping industry transitions to so-called “Post-Panamax” supertankers and container ships, which are dramatically larger than most existing ships. (An expansion of the Panama Canal is under way and is expected to reduce container ship traffic to West Coast ports.) New rail service would also require expanded docking facilities and infrastructure upgrades, none of which would be considered in the feasibility study. The study is supposed to provide an estimated price tag for the rail portion of the project. So far, guesses vary wildly. “I’ve seen it all over the map,” Hull said. Arkley told KSLG DJ John Matthews it will cost “half a billion.” At a recent supervisors’ meeting Supervisor Lovelace suggested “one or two billion.” As for who might pay for it, that remains anyone’s guess.

Even as a pipe dream,

the east-west rail project serves certain purposes. For one thing, it has become the latest wedge issue dividing the community. In his Eureka law office, Barnum drew a contrast between guys like him who ask the big questions and those who want the region to remain stagnant. “I really believe that somebody — and I think it should be me and those who agree with me — we need to be aggressively investigating what might be,” he said. On the other side you have the “naysayers.” “I think there’s a significant portion of our community who want to see no change, no growth in our economy,” Barnum said. Arkley took it a step further, throwing down the gauntlet to anyone who might dare oppose the project. “Look,” he told KINS “Talk Shop” host Brian Papstein, “the fact is [the east-west rail project] polls over 80 percent in Humboldt County. Anyone who wants to oppose it, any

politician who wants to take up a stand and oppose it, let’s do it. We showed you with Marina Center what will happen. Let’s do it here again.” Asked how long it will take to lay the track Arkley spoke confidently: “Months, not years.” As with Marina Center, Arkley’s planned waterfront development in Eureka, the east-west rail project is being positioned as a litmus test: Those who support it are in favor of jobs, prosperity and a future for our children. Those who oppose or challenge it in any way must not want the rest of those things. Like the east-west train idea itself, this line of reasoning ignores reams of economic development data and years of work from local leaders. In 2003 the Harbor District collaborated with the City of Eureka and Humboldt County to commission a harbor revitalization study. Prepared by the consulting firm Parsons Brinckerhoff, the study concluded that the best way to capitalize on our port was not through major importing and exporting but a range of more modest endeavors: increased aquaculture such as oyster farming, marine-dependent industrial projects, tourism and marine science. Jack Crider, the new Harbor District CEO, sees plenty of potential for our bay. A loading crane and improved docking facilities could allow us to load containers with local wood products, then put them on barges to other large ports. He also likes the idea of getting Humboldt Bay incorporated into a short-sea shipping network. Meanwhile the county has developed a master plan for the town of Samoa, rezoning part of the peninsula to allow a coastal industrial site, modernize the infrastructure and develop new live/work space (“Samoa 2.0,” June 9, 2011). The Harbor District is also working on transportation and industrial development on the Samoa Peninsula and has made progress on expanding oyster farming (“The World is Yours, Oyster Farmer,” April 5). And through an updated Prosperity initiative, the county has worked to identify and nurture existing areas of economic growth, including management and innovation services, niche manufacturing and specialty agriculture, food and beverage production. Unlike the east-west train, these ideas exist in the realm of reality. l

Scapes photo by Ari LeVaux

he first time I ate garlic flowers was for breakfast on a train from Beijing to Ulan Bator, Mongolia. The dining car didn’t have a menu. You sat down and they brought you food. I went there as soon as the train left the station, and was happy to find it open. A server delivered a plate of stir-fried chopped green things with pork and oyster sauce, and a bowl of rice. It was years later that I realized that the pencil-thick green things were pieces of garlic flowers and flower stalks, which are collectively known as scapes. They were at once spice and vegetable, and a perfect companion to the pork and oyster sauce. If the servers hadn’t moved me along I could have sat there for hours, watching workers doing Tai Chi in front of factory after factory, and eating pork and scapes until I exploded. Garlic flowers are a byproduct of the crop’s cultivation, and some growers

see them as more nuisance than bonus, because they have to be removed, which takes work. Picking garlic flowers is based on the same principle by which steers are castrated. Without the option of expending bodily resources on sexual reproduction, the organism grows larger. Some gardeners, citing “plant integrity” concerns, don’t pick off their garlic flowers. I want big bulbs, so I pick the flowers. And then I happily eat them. Some farmers are savvy enough to realize that garlic flowers are not only delicious, but they’re an extra something that you can harvest and sell when pickings are often slim. But these garlic growers are in the minority. Most commercially grown garlic, the kind you’re likely to buy at the store, is of the non-flowering type, called softneck, while the flowering types are called hardnecks. Your best bet for tracking down some hardneck flowers is the continued on next page

farmers markets from now until mid-June, or fancy grocery stores. If you’re lucky enough to have a garlic patch of your own, and wise enough to have planted hardneck, then a stroll to garden is all it takes. When the flowers emerge depends on the variety of hardneck and climate where it’s grown. Once they appear, the stalks grow quickly, curling around like cartoon pig tails until two full curls are completed. After a week or two the stalks then uncurl and stand straight up. With the stalk fully extended the bud finally opens into a spectacular flower. For both culinary and agricultural purposes, you want to pick the stalks no later than the curled state, so the bulbs grow big, and because as the stalks straighten out they lose their tenderness and become woody. But for aesthetic purposes it’s nice to leave the flowers on a few of the plants. The bulbs on the non-castrat-

Chinese train scapes Ingredients:

Fatty pieces of pork (bacon for example) Oil Garlic flowers (about four per person) Basil leaves (¼ cup per person) Red chili flakes, to taste Oyster sauce (¼ cup per person) Note: Choose the brand with the fewest ingredients.

Method:

Cut pork into domino-sized chunks, and fry on medium heat. Add oil if the

ed plants will be smaller, but you get to look at the flowers. I harvest garlic flowers by grabbing the stalk as low as I can, right where it emerges, and pulling straight up with a smooth gentle tug, like pulling a blade of grass. To cook them, cut off the flowers’ dry tips, and the rest — stalk and flower — are edible. You can do anything with scapes that you would do with regular garlic, like chop or press them into your food to add garlic flavor. Or cook them whole, like asparagus or beans, and serve drizzled in lemon butter aside your proteins. Add garlic flowers to a pot of simmering chicken soup, two minutes before serving, and watch the neon green coils curve around the serving bowl. Chop them up small and fry in oil, and then pour in beaten egg for garlic flower scrambled eggs. Or cook them Chinese style, stir-fried with bacon and oyster sauce, like they do on the trains in China. ●

When all the water has been released from the meat and evaporat its ing tter spla is ed off, and the pork way to crispy, add the cut garlic flowers, red chili flakes and basil leaves. Stir-fry until the garlic flowers are cooked, adding water or white wine to the pan if it starts to dry out. Add black pepper and oyster sauce. Stir it around for long enough to coat and mix evenly. Adjust chili, black pepper, and oyster sauce to taste. Then kill the heat and serve with rice.

Release Me

New CDs from Vidagua, Side Iron, Johnny Render, Martin and Blades, plus Bob D’s birthday and radio news By Bob Doran

bobdoran@northcoastjournal.com

A

s we shift into the digital age, where music is exchanged via computers and played on phones and iPods, some say the CD is dead. Not so fast, say independent artists who still see the disc as a viable art form. For example, the reggae-meets-Latin bilingual vocal duo Vidagua is celebrating the release of a self-tiled CD this weekend. You may have seen Vidagua’s Lorenza Simmons and Biancamankai as back-up singers for Berel Alexander and Ishi Dube (who produced the album). The ladies have been singing and writing songs together since meeting at HSU 11 years ago and figured it was time to make a record. “It’s taken almost two years, but a lot of the songs were works in progress for 10 years,” said Lorenza when she dropped off an advance copy. Why put out a CD? “We want to share the songs with people who have heard them over

the years, so they have something to take home. And we still love the idea of having a hard copy in the hand, having the art and liner notes. We’ll do some digital stuff too, but we’re glad we did this. We hope to share it far and wide, share our message.” The message? “It’s very much about love, about uplifting the soul, especially in these times. Music is such a powerful way to bring people together and spread the love.” Pick up a copy and feel the love Saturday at the Red Fox with special guest Madi Simmons (Lorenza’s dad) who sings on the record, plus DJs One Wise Sound and Gabe Pressure. That same night at the Alibi, local alt. honky tonk rockers Side Iron celebrate the completion of what seems to be an eponymous album. (The CD and a poster were dropped at the Journal office and Side Iron is all it says on the disc.) Sampled speeches by a Mexican politician and Obama lead into raw, driving songs

about life, love, drinking and redemption. Bridgeville-based songwriter Gabe Rozzell opens the release show. Then there’s the Johnny Render CD Release Tour invading the Shanty Saturday. Renderville Records publicist Randy Render (Johnny’s brother?) offers this cryptic description of Johnny: “Render is a longtime L.A.-based ‘entertainer’ who released his LP Rendervoux ‘anonymously’ this year on the ‘anonymous’ Renderville Records label. Render’s identity is currently ‘unknown,’ although several sources have identified him as filmmaker Jensen Rufe, who directed the 2006 Rural Rock & Roll documentary about Humboldt garage rock.” Clues: Render’s album was recorded by longtime Guided by Voices producer Todd Tobias. Rufe is a huge GBV fan who also leads the GBV tribute, Tiger Bomb. Like GBV, Johnny’s songs tend toward short, sincere indie pop. (What’s hard to tell is whether the sincerity is real or tongue-in-cheek.) His touring combo is something of a Rural Rock revival with Dameon Lee Waggoner from Lowlights and The Letdown on bass, and drummer Ray Johnson from The Cutters and The Sin Men. Aaron Friscia from The Sharp Ease handles lead guitar duty. Also on the bill: The Suicide Notes from Portland, the latest band for former local Pat Foss from Petey and The Associates. Your MC for the evening: none other than rapper JPG, back in action after a long hiatus. Classy reunion. The jazzy jammin’ organ/drum duo Billy Martin and Wil Blades just released a new CD, Shimmy, on Martin’s own label, Amulet Records, in association with Royal Potato Family. This is one of those almost instant partnerships: When Martin (of Medeski Martin and Wood fame) met the young organist from Berkeley at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Fest last year, they got into some old school groove jazz a la Brother Jack McDuff, Groove Holmes, etc. That led to a West Coast tour; partway through they booked studio time in Blades’ hometown. “We had about seven hours to record as much music as we could and hoped to get a full record out of it,” said Martin. “We were burning the candle bright, touring down the coast. By the time we hit the studio we had about five gigs behind us and were well warmed up with the material we were developing.” The end result: an instant record, a good one at that, and now another West Coast tour to celebrate the sweet release, including a stop Tuesday at the Jambalaya. Tribute of the week, hands down, Chris Parreira‘s Second Annual Bob Dylan Birthday Bash on Thursday (Bob’s actual birthday) at Mad River Brewing, marking the great songwriter’s 71st birthday. You’ll hear The Trouble, The Rezonators, Kulica, Jan Bramlett, Jeff Kelley, Patrick Cleary, Marty L’Heralt and Jeff DeMark, all dipping into the deep well that is Dylan’s songbook. I loved last year’s truly awesome Million Dollar Bash; this one should be just as good if not better. There’s also the Beatles tribute, Silver

Hammer, playing Saturday night at Blue Lake Casino, a band that I only recently realized is closely related to ’80s tributers Eyes Anonymous. Did I mention that the guys have really cool costumes that seem to be inspired by the Yellow Submarine movie? Mazzotti’s Arcata, former home of Brewin’ Beats and Cafe Tomo, relaunches as a music venue Thursday with a show featuring Australian “funkadelic hippo hop monkey crunk” electro artist Opiuo. Be prepared to dance. Jon Dee Graham, an Austin-based Americana songwriter with a resume that includes playing in a band with Alejandro Escovedo and recording with Ry Cooder, is also part of the pre-release wave: His Garage Sale album comes out this summer. Sunday he’s at Robert Goodman Wines with another Austin songwriter, Mike June (his CD Exile on Wilson Street is just out), and Chris Parreira, who lived there too. Wikipedia tell us that, in Indian religions, moksha (Sanskrit for liberation, from the root, muc, to let loose, let go) is “the final extrication of the soul,” which ends “all the suffering involved in being subject to the cycle of repeated death and rebirth.” In Las Vegas on the other hand, Moksha is a five-piece kick-ass, funk rock band that lets loose in a not-sospiritual fashion. Release yourself from suffering with Moksha Sunday at Humboldt Brews. SambAmore offers a rhythmic warm-up. SoHum’s Redwood Community Radio KMUD is marking its silver anniversary this year by throwing a big block party on July 7 in Redway. But first there’s a live KMUD broadcast starting at 7 p.m. Sunday from the Riverwood Inn celebrating another silver anniversary: 25 years on the air by two deejays who have been with the station since the start, Les Scher, host of “Lester Leaps In” (Sundays at 7 p.m.) and Johanna Hamel, host of “Jomama’s Blues” (Sundays at 9 p.m.). Saxophonist Francis Vanek and friends are featured on Les’ show, and since Les plays sax too and is among Francis’ friends, he’ll undoubtedly join the jam at some point. Oakland-based blues/soul piano player/ vocalist Lady Bianca follows at 9. My guess is you’ll also find Jomama at the Riverwood Friday night when blues guitarist/ songwriter Debbie Davies brings her band to town. Winner of the Blues Foundation’s “Best Contemporary Female Blues Artist” award a couple of years ago, Davies took some time off to mourn the loss of her close friend, musician Robin Rogers, and to heal after breaking her arm. The result was a record full of new songs, After The Fall, set for release in July, which I suppose makes this a pre-CD release show. And while we’re talking radio deejays, we’re about to lose one of my favorites, Barry Thorpe, host of the expertly curated “Classic Jazz Variety” show on Wednesday nights on KHSU since 1994. Barry is retiring and sailing off into the sunset, headed for Bali (seriously, he really is). Tune in his last show May 30; he promises some extra special musical surprises. Bon voyage! ●

book Open City By Teju Cole - Random House

This novel set in 2006 is narrated by Julius, who, like the author, was born in Nigeria but lives in New York City. We never learn Julius’ last name, but other information comes our way. His Nigerian father died when Julius was a boy. He is estranged from his German mother. His maternal grandmother to whom he once felt close lives in Belgium, but Julius does not know where. A former girlfriend has moved to San Francisco. Julius is a psychiatrist completing his final year of residency at a hospital in the city, and it is his custom to take long walks down the streets and through the parks of Manhattan. Julius is a careful observer, open to beauty, cruelty and nuance, and the author reports his observations with the precise eloquence one might expect from a psychiatrist. We encounter birds, plants (wisteria, “its purple blooms … busy with resurrection”), people, the island itself, where the surrounding water is “a kind of embarrassing secret, the unloved daughter … while the parks are doted on … overused.” I kept a map of Manhattan at my side as I read. So clear are the descriptions that I could track his journeys closely as he passed through ethnic neighborhoods and made his way to museums and concert halls. A dark-skinned immigrant, Julius sees the world though eyes different from my own. Anyone who attends classical music concerts is aware that the audiences tend to be overwhelmingly elderly and white, but I had never experienced how a young black male might feel sitting in such an audience. Julius befriends Farouq, an immigrant from Morocco, and through their conversations we glimpse how Farouq sees himself, the people around him and the world at large. On another occasion he visits Saidu, who escaped from Liberia during the civil war but is now held in detention awaiting deportation. While we learn much about the world around him, Julius reveals very little of himself. The tension between our desire to know him better and his unwillingness to reveal more of himself helps move the story along. An incident that happened when Julius was 14, told late in the book, is central to another character’s understanding of our narrator. But Julius never tells us what the incident means to him or even if, in his memory, it happened at all. Julius makes friends and loses them, but at his core he remains a solitary character, very bright, somewhat fragile, walking and observing with fresh eyes the streets of New York. Open City is not a page turner, but is recommended to the unhurried reader, the reader who enjoys the play of ideas, — the observations and musings of a complex character — and is willing to sacrifice an action-filled plot to get them.  — Doug Ingold

cd Fear Fun By Father John Misty - Sub Pop Records

It is no secret that Los Angeles has been a breeding ground for fantasy and tragedy, creating the mythos of the “beautiful loser” character, treading water amid industry, delusion and artificial props, all spread across a vast desert landscape. Author Nathaniel West captured the sense of desolation past the hues of Hollywood in his slim, brilliant novel of 1930s LA, Miss Lonelyhearts. Its narrator, a downtrodden journalist, agrees to write an advice column and gets caught in the downward swirl of overwhelming (and extreme) pleas for help and validity. It’s from this sort of viewpoint that many songwriters have experienced LA, including Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Gram Parsons, Randy Newman and Harry Nilsson. Josh Tillman, former drummer and vocalist for Fleet Foxes, has now released his seventh full-length solo effort, Fear Fun, under the alias Father John Misty. Musically, it’s an expansion from the bleakness that defined his work released as “J. Tillman,” while lyrically he retains the dark cloud hovering over his narrators. Having left Fleet Foxes in 2011, Tillman couch-surfed around Los Angeles, absorbing the mythic “beautiful loser” narration. “Joseph Campbell and The Rolling Stones couldn’t give a myth, so I had to write my own,” he sings in “Everyman Needs a Companion,” a composition strikingly reminiscent of Harry Nilsson’s “Don’t Forget Me.” Tillman maintains a musical association with Fleet Foxes, often employing cascading harmonies, but he fully adopts specific Laurel Canyon influences, such as Neil Young (his darker side), while including Parsons, The Beatles, John Lennon’s solo work, and above all, the aforementioned Nilsson, whose use of ironic humor Tillman can easily relate to. The country-pop swing of “Misty’s Nightmares 1 & 2” captures Nilsson-style dark humor under a loose, upbeat hootenanny arrangement. On the elegant “Nancy From Now On,” Tillman ingeniously blends Nilsson and John Lennon (infamous LA partying partners in the early ’70s) in an unusual way. He takes a Nilsson-like melody line and combines it with a latter-day Lennon sound (Double Fantasy) — and it works brilliantly. The Beatles’ psychedelic influence looms prominently over “This is Sally Hatchet.” In “Tee Pees 1-12,” Tillman borrows from Parsons to color his narration of love and spirit gone awry and “drinking greyhounds way below the ground.” As Father John Misty, Tillman, with the assistance of alt. country-rock veteran Jonathan Wilson, has produced a record of sincere wariness under a surprising umbrella of eclectic pop-folk influences. Fear Fun fits snuggly between two L.A. “beautiful loser” contemporary works: Elliott Smith’s pop landmark Figure 8 and Phosphorescent’s melancholic, alt. country offering, Here’s To Taking It Easy. Except Tillman interjects a deeper sense of humor, irony and, well, fun into his work. What’s to fear, Father John?  — Mark Shikuma

30 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, MAY 24, 2012 •

northcoastjournal.com

The last Monday in May is coming up, which means it’s time to celebrate Memorial Day, an American holiday honoring our military veterans. There will be flags and parades all over and, in Indianapolis, a 500-mile auto race that’s been held for more than 100 years. Here in Humboldt we have another, quite different race on Memorial Day weekend: The Kinetic Grand Championship, aka The Kinetic Sculpture Race. What’s that, you might ask if you’re a tourist or just new in town? The folks who organize it describe it as the triathlon of the art world, “a three-day, 42-mile bicycle race over land, sand, mud and water.” While many of the machines are crafted from bicycle parts, the word “bicycle” is insufficient here. These are human-powered all-terrain “Kinetic Sculptures” — art pieces piloted by mad mechanic/sculptors, typically accompanied by elaborately costumed “pit crew” entourages. It’s a team effort — as is the entire gargantuan endeavor. The Kinetic Race has a long, storied history going back to 1969, when local sculptor Hobart Brown organized a short competition with some artist friends in Ferndale. Known forever as “The Glorious Founder,” Hobart went on to spread Kinetic consciousness worldwide, instigating races around the United States and abroad. Before he died in 2007, a group of Kinetic royals known as the Rutabaga Queens formed Kinetic Universe to keep the race going. At this point three Queens (the title is lifelong) serve on the nonprofit group’s seven-member board. Rutabaga Queen Emma Breacain serves as treasurer, press officer and event planner. While helping coordinate the 150 to 200 volunteers who run the race and associated events like the Rutabaga Ball, she oversees an annual budget of around $50,000. “The first race was done by the skin of our teeth with personal loans. Now we have some sponsors who give us money,” said Queen Emma. (Among them: Colorado’s New Belgium Brewing, which kicked in $10,000 this year.) Fundraising, logistics and dealing with various bureaucracies that must sign off on the countywide event require a massive amount of time and effort. Why do they do it? There are a couple of pat answers: Hobart would always say, “For the glory!” and explain that Kinetics is about “adults having fun so children desire to grow older.” KU President and Rutabaga Queen Kati Texas has been racing for 10 years, including six years with Kinetic Ace Duane Flatmo’s crew. She says she got into Kinetics because “that place where designer and art meet is such fertile ground,” showing us “the connection between things that look beautiful and work beautifully.” Says Queen Emma, “I ask myself ‘why’ all the time — it is a lot of work and it invades the other departments of your life relentlessly. Speaking only for myself, I fell in love with the event and the people, the amazing, insane art and engineering, and the festive spirit. Everyone has something they can bring to this party; everyone can play.” Newly crowned Rutabaga Queen Wendy “Sohotshe” Burns says she got involved in Kinetics because “as a

spectator, I was inspired by the pure sense of fun and unbridled creativity that the participants embraced.” She started out three years ago as what’s known as a pageantry judge and became increasingly engrossed in Kinetic culture and its sense of community. “This is 100 percent a community event,” she emphasizes, “and not just local community. It really reaches out to communities abroad, making stronger connections with creative, like-minded folks.” Ready for some kinetic madness? The Kinetic Grand Championship insert in the middle of this paper includes the arcane set of rules along with a map of the race route. Wherever you go, bring your camera. This is one of Humboldt’s most photogenic events. And tune in to Kinetic sponsor KHUM-FM, which will provide race coverage all weekend. Saturday morning on the Arcata Plaza is the best location to see all the machines in one place. Come early to mingle with the racers as they prepare and have their brakes tested. The LeMans start is a must-see, with dozens of sculptures circling the town square twice. From there things spread out as the race goes through Manila with a side trip though the dunes onto the beach before heading for the gazebo in Old Town Eureka. Sunday begins with a “bay crossing” test demonstrating seaworthiness. After lunch at Eureka Natural Foods, the machines are off to Cannibal Island for a racers-only overnighter. Monday it’s best to wait for the machines to arrive on the finish line on Ferndale’s Main Street, the place where the race was born 43 years ago. An awards dinner follows in the Ferndale Fireman’s Hall at round 5:30 p.m. and another glorious Kinetic Grand Championship is complete. Time to start planning for the next one. Incidentally, at 10 a.m. Monday, before the racers arrive in town, Ferndale has a glorious traditional Memorial Day Parade, right down Main Street. — Bob Doran

Taylor Kitsch and Rihanna in Battleship

Hit! Miss!

Battleship is a guilty pleasure, but The Dictator doesn’t rule By John J. Bennett and Devan King filmland@northcoastjournal.com

Reviews

BATTLESHIP. I put a lot of energy into trying to hate Battleship, even before the first trailer premiered. I railed against the absurdity of a board game adaptation, demanding Hollywood explain this flimsy, gratuitous attempt to capitalize on the childhoods of all Americans. Have they run out of books to adapt? Dreck to sequelize? Is this the best idea Universal could come up with? More to the point, weren’t there any interesting board games they could have adapted? (See: Clue, the best and only acceptable board game adaptation.) Despite my nitpicky rage, there was a hidden spark of curiosity. Like slowing

down as you pass an accident scene, I had a morbid impulse to see the carnage for myself. Incredibly, if you can set aside your desire for quality screenwriting and your hatred for clichéd casting, Battleship is very entertaining. Screenwriting brothers Erich and Jon Hoeber (Red) transform the gridded monotony of the original game into an explosion-filled, quasi-scientific alien invasion flick. Off the coast of Hawaii, amid a joint naval exercise between Japan and the United States, the future of human existence falls into the hands of aimless, irresponsible Lt. Alex Hopper (Taylor Kitsch). After coming to Earth, the aliens encapsulate several battle cruisers in a giant, electromagnetic force-field. Once trapped in the dome, alien ships and battle cruisers take turns lobbing missiles at each other. Meanwhile, back on land, Hopper’s love interest (Brooklyn Decker) courageously clamors to keep the aliens from gaining access to communication beacons that would let them call in alien reinforcements. Other storylines are clumsily strewn about, either to distract from the flimsy central plot or add a “something for everybody” quality: love stories, tragic losses, moral triumphs, dramatic close-ups of a relatively pointless Liam Neeson. Director Peter Berg (Hancock, Friday Night Lights) works in as many visual refer-

ences to the original game as possible, but they generally miss their mark (pun intended). Still, he succeeds in making a fantastically and shamefully entertaining summer blockbuster. Buoyed by sexy familiar faces (Rihanna, Alexander Skarsgård), Battleship manages to stay afloat, as long as you don’t think about it too hard. PG13. 131m. —Devan King THE DICTATOR. Sacha Baron Cohen is most likely a genius. When he’s really hitting, his comedy is as challenging and funny as anybody’s. He previously collaborated with director Larry Charles on Borat (2006) and Bruno (2009), crazy-ambitious experiments that tested the limits of narrative film and audience taboos. Both movies used guerilla documentary tactics to slaughter a great number of sacred cows of American culture. Cohen’s ballsy, high-wire-act commitment to his characters made for terrifying, laugh-out-loud moviegoing. I even find Ali G Indahouse (2002) pretty fun. So it’s a sad, tough thing that The Dictator falls so flat. Conceptually, this new Cohen/Charles product is bigger and less forward-thinking than their previous efforts. They’ve done away with the fourth-wall smashing, and we never have to worry that our protagonist is in any real danger. This is straight Hollywood-style movie-making, complete with fantastical mansions in the desert and parades of Lamborghinis and exotic animals. Cohen’s titular dictator even has a cadre of hot ladies who I assume are supposed to be commandoes as well as concubines. These trappings are potentially entertaining, but the richesto-rags story tying it all together has been done and re-done so many times that it can’t be saved. To be fair, the filmmakers do twist the formula in some characteristically subversive directions, slyly using a Middle Eastern despot to skewer the continuing constriction of American civil liberties. Anna Faris turns in an atypically subtle performance, despite her character’s being an arch stereotype. John C. Reilly is tremendous in a too-short cameo. Ben Kingsley’s in there, but seriously underused. There are a number of smart ideas here, and the movie can stand with the other Cohen and Charles collaborations thematically. But the payoff just isn’t there. Their earlier movies were risky rollercoasters, bringing us along on a ride that was impossible to predict. I respect the filmmakers for going in a different

direction with this one, but it just isn’t as funny or divisive as I’d have hoped. If I had it to do over again, I’d wait for this to come out as a rental and spend the money on Tenacious D’s Rize of the Fenix. A comedy rock-and-roll album with a cinematic bent, it contains all the brilliant, lowbrow, super-profane hilarity I expect from a Sacha Baron Cohen movie. And it will rock your socks off. —John J. Bennett

Previews

MEN IN BLACK III. Fifteen years ago, Barry Sonnenfeld directed the first MIB, one of the most clever and fun entertainments of the ’90s. He hasn’t made a good film since. Let’s see if he can break that streak. PG13. 105m. CHERNOBYL DIARIES. Bored American dipshits travel to Pripyat, Ukraine, site of the worst nuclear disaster in history. They wake the mutants. Serves ’em right. R. 90m. THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL. British retirees (Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith and others) head to India for some exotic R & R and find the amenities lacking. PG13. 123m. On Friday at the Arcata Theatre Lounge, say “hello” to Al Pacino’s little friend in Scarface (1983). Bring snack money — Al’s scenery chewing might stimulate your appetite. R. 170m. Sunday brings wholesome pleasures from The Sandlot, a 1993 comedy about baseball-playing tykes in the summer of 1962. PG. 101m. Just in time for next Wednesday’s Sci-Fi Pint and Pizza Night, heroic earthling Flash Gordon (1980) zooms in to save the world, backed by Queen’s shimmering rock-opera soundtrack. PG. 111m. Afterward, travel back in time to Flash’s 1940s serial heroism via the feature-length compilation The Purple Death From Outer Space (1960).

Continuing

THE AVENGERS. Director Joss Whedon infuses this superhero all-star team with wit and humor without skimping on the thrills. PG13. 142m. DARK SHADOWS. Johnny Depp and Tim Burton used to have something, didn’t they? Not so much in this adaptation of a 1960s soap opera. PG13. 113m. THE HUNGER GAMES. In a dystopian future state, teenagers get conscripted into a televised death match. PG. 142m. THE PIRATES! BAND OF MISFITS. Stop-motion comedy from Aardman Studios is fun but doesn’t quite live up to the magic of Wallace & Gromit. PG. 88m. WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING. Five interconnected couples make babies and have gag-me-cute romcom problems. PG13. 110m. —Ryan Burns l

fter writing and teaching about total solar eclipses for many years, I finally saw one on July 11, 1991, and was, as they say where I come from, gobstruck. The flight to our viewing spot, a remote beach in Baja California, Mexico, was an experience in itself. Four of us squeezed into a Cessna 172 at Palo Alto airport five days before the eclipse, and three days (and several adventures) later, we landed at Los Frailes, the closest airstrip to the eclipse centerline on Baja’s eastern coast. By the morning of July 11, my four-inch refractor telescope was mounted in our “observatory” (a patch of sand protected from the wind by a tarpaulin) and right on time we saw “first contact,” the moment when the moon’s disk began its traverse across the face of the sun. An hour later, with two-thirds of the sun’s disk covered, the temperature had dropped noticeably and the light was noticeably dimmer. Cacti took on a pastel color. We saw and heard birds, usually quiet at noon in that arid climate, singing in the pseudo-sunset. Shadows sharpened, so that I could discern the individual hairs on my head silhouetted on the sand. We saw hundreds of little crescents beneath a straw hat whose holes focused the sun, reminiscent of a pinhole camera. Then the mountains to the west suddenly

darkened as the moon’s shadow, racing at 1,300 mph across our planet, cut sunlight off from the peaks. Seconds later, as if someone had turned a switch, we were in totality. The abruptness of the transition — a sliver of sun to no sun — came as a shock. Overhead, the white wreath of the corona was huge, extending two or three sun diameters from what appeared to be a round hole in the sky. With the naked eye, we could make out two prominences of hot gas, while through the telescope, they were spectacular: ruby-red fiery arches extending at least ten Earth-diameters from the solar “surface.” The minutes whizzed by until (far too soon) the sun returned. I was looking through my telescope when first a single bead of sunlight, then an incandescent avalanche of photons blasted my retina. It was past time to replace the Mylar solar screen. We’d read previously that people generally cheered when the sun returned. Not our little party. We looked at each other with the expressions of those who had seen a miracle, and weren’t ready for it to end. Our wake was lubricated with Cerveza Pacifico in a nearby cantina. l

ASSESSOR’S PARCEL NO. 016-081-028 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. The law requires that informa-

tion 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 707-443-0837 for information regarding the trustee’s sale and inquire as to the status of the foreclosure using the T.S. number assigned to this foreclosure shown on the first page of this notice. 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. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The unpaid balance and estimate of costs, expenses and advances as of May 2, 2012 is $222,942.37; said amount will increase until date of sale. The street address or other common designation, if any, of the real property described herein is purported to be: 3842 Glenwood St., Eureka, CA. Directions may be obtained pursuant to a written request submitted to the Beneficiary. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address or other common designation, if any, shown herein.
