News blackout


ne blogger last week accused the Journal of a news blackout on the topic of the Bay Trail. It’s mostly true. When I volunteered to work with trail advocates in March, Journal Editor Carrie Peyton Dahlberg and her staff decided no coverage while the story is unfolding. The original Bay Trail Advocates’ plan was to ask the city councils of Eureka and Arcata, the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors, and ultimately the North Coast Railroad Authority — as the legal owner of the right-of-way — to consider railbanking the corridor north of Eureka. Once railbanked under federal law, the right-of-way would be preserved forever for the return of rail service, but in the interim, it could be used as a bike and pedestrian trail. (We propose two projects: a rail-with-trail from Samoa to Arcata and rail-to-trail from Arcata to Eureka. See The Journal editorial staff felt that whatever coverage they did on a pet project of the publisher, the person who signs their paychecks, would be perceived by readers as biased. I agreed. But I also agreed to write a periodic update — as a trail advocate — in my publisher’s column. The Bay Trail Plan proposal and the significant questions it has spawned have now been on the public agenda and vigorously discussed eight times in the last three months. The plan has been before the Humboldt County Association of Governments’ Technical Advisory Committee, HCAOG’s board of directors (June and July), the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors, Arcata and Eureka city councils, and the NCRA board on July 11 and again last Wednesday in Novato. I was there at each meeting. My report to you as a trail advocate is — so far, so good. I’m not saying our proposal to railbank was warmly received. It was not, largely because the 1983 law has been so widely misunderstood. But now, as of last week, we have a committee of three NCRA directors who will look at three things: the feasibility of a trail, plus the feasibility of repairing and maintaining the crumbling rail bed between Eureka and Arcata, plus the feasibility of the return of rail service. The committee will start work in September, hold public meetings here on each topic, and report back in November. The full NCRA board still meets monthly in other counties, but this subcommittee of three directors

North Coast Journal • Thursday, Aug. 16, 2012 •

hopes to conduct its meetings and produce a report and recommendations by the next time the NCRA board meets in Eureka — November. There are good reasons for this timetable, which I’ll discuss below, but first I want to respond to those testifying at those eight meetings who accused Bay Trail Advocates of being anti-railroad. Baloney. There are only four members of the Bay Trail Advocates and we love railroads: Los Bagels’ owner Dennis Rael, retired Humboldt State administrator Rees Hughes, me, and — our newest member — Don Banducci, co-founder of Yakima and a longtime member of the Timber Heritage Association. (We purposely kept the core group small and very focused these past months because we knew we had a gantlet of agencies to negotiate to have any chance of success.) Our official position is that we support the return of rail service to Humboldt County when and if it is feasible. There have been no trains run in 15 years on the line. There have been two suggestions for the return of rail service in recent years, but no viable plan on the table. We believe the return of rail could not occur for a minimum of 10 years. A more realistic estimate might be 20 years. In the meantime, there are other pressing needs in this community that can be addressed by using the public right-of-way for bike and pedestrian transportation and recreation. What about the Rob Arkley-backed east-west rail line proposal? This “Humboldt Bay Harbor Working Group” wants to use the right-of-way, including the 6.5 miles between Arcata and Eureka, to connect our deep-water port to the national rail system south of Redding. The group wants to build a new, 125-mile-long rail connection east through two national forests — possibly to ship Montana coal to China or to bring containerized cargo from the Far East to America’s heartland. We don’t know because no one has named any potential customers. Now this is a topic the Journal has been covering regularly, (See “ChooChoo Fantasies,” May 24, The Bay Trail Advocates do not oppose the east-west plan. In fact, I personally support the feasibility study or any other idea for economic development of this region. I just don’t want public funds spent on it until someone produces a viable plan that includes potential customers. Show us the customers. Until then, this is a private busi-

ness venture that we should stay out of. Why are we asking that this new NCRA committee complete its work by November? Humboldt County has been pretty much ignored by the NCRA these past 15 years. We are at the end of the Northwestern Pacific (NWP Co.) rail line, and restoration of the north end is the NCRA’s lowest priority. (The NCRA spent $64 million successfully rebuilding 62 miles of rail service on the south end last year. It is a viable rail project that will hopefully be sustainable.) There has been no money spent on maintenance on the line in Humboldt County in 15 years. We are losing this public asset. NWP Co. President John Williams admitted at the NCRA meeting here in July he has no viable plans to restore rail service in this county in the foreseeable future. None. The rail prism (rail bed foundation for tracks and ties) is crumbling into Humboldt Bay, further exposing Highway 101 to storms, tidal action and rising sea levels. Rarely have we had such strong and knowledgeable representation on the NCRA board. We currently have two members, Bill Kier of Blue Lake and Supervisor Clif Clendenen (who serves as chair), on the NCRA board of nine members representing four diverse counties. Both men have volunteered to serve on the new NCRA committee along with Mendocino Supervisor John McCowen. That will change after November, since Clendenen lost reelection in June. We all have very short memories. On Feb. 15, 2007, the NCRA adopted a Strategic Plan Update proposing to reopen the Eel River Canyon by mid-2011 and the line around Humboldt Bay by the end of that year. That clock ran out long ago. We are asking that the NCRA pay attention to the needs of Humboldt County. We want this NCRA committee to do the work it is tasked with completing in a reasonable timeframe: to engage local agencies and stakeholders, to look at the wealth of currently available information — including the 2003 Humboldt Bay Revitalization Plan and the 2007 Humboldt Bay Trail Feasibility Study and that 2007 Strategic Plan Update — and to create a report to the full NCRA board with recommendations to be considered by November. Those who want to delay this work are voting for the status quo.l

Editor: I am writing to express my extreme disappointment in your article, “Bird by Bird” (Aug. 9), concerning the fish-oiled brown pelicans. As a member of the Humboldt Wildlife Care Center Board and a volunteer with wildlife rehab on and off over the past 30 years, I have seen and heard it all. I was dismayed the Journal would take such a negative, “why bother?” stance. In my opinion, the article was a slap in the

second-to-last paragraph, Deborah Jaques states that the most pressing issue is to eliminate practices that needlessly harm birds, like improper fish waste disposal. All of our work to help these pelicans is through private donations by individuals and businesses — we receive no state or federal funding. Obviously the people of our community feel as we do, that helping these pelicans is the right thing to do, since their generous donations have continued to sustain us. We live in an incredibly beautiful area, and the wild places and wildlife are an intrinsic part of that world. Please, if you can’t help us, don’t harm us.

These amazing people have taken on the responsibility of helping all wildlife, especially in situations caused by humans … which is the case here.

There is opportunity here to turn this problem into a resource, and I’m baffled why some ideas or solutions to the fish waste issue weren’t addressed.  In the

A lingering court case holds tenants hostage to the whims of their slumlord

t’s been 10½ months since Humboldt County Superior Court Judge Dale Reinholtsen deemed the condition of six rental properties owned by Floyd and Betty Squires so bad they constituted “a substantial endangerment” to residents and the public, requiring immediate takeover by a court-appointed receiver. The receiver, Mark S. Adams, president of California Receivership Group LLP, based in Los Angeles, was appointed a month later, on Oct. 24. His job? To seize the six properties, inspect them and begin managing and rehabilitating them — collecting rents and hiring crews to fix the multitude of health and safety building code violations. (The receiver would use the rents to pay for the work, as well as liens put on the properties, as needed, which the Squireses would have to pay off.) But none of that happened. Shortly after the judge’s order, the Squireses appealed the ruling and posted a $50,000 bond to stop the judge’s order — effectively suspending the receivership, and Adams’ inspections, and leaving the properties in the Squireses’ hands until the case is resolved. (The Squireses, mean-

while, sued Adams, alleging he trespassed and violated tenants’ privacy in his initial inspections. That case is active.) Adams said in his 10 years as a receiver, he has never seen a case like this. “I’ve handled a total of 64 cases, up and down the state, ranging from a small duplex to a Grapes of Wrath kind of migrant camp of 4,000 in the Coachella Valley,” Adams said. “I’ve had three other cases in Eureka … but Floyd Squires is by far the most vexatious and harassing slumlord I’ve had to deal with by far. And the really landmark aspect of the Squires case is that a city had the resolve to take on a 26-property slumlord in one case; as far as I know, that’s not happened before or since anywhere else in California. For the city to perceive it as a systemic problem and to go after all the properties of an owner as opposed to just this property or that property — it’s extraordinary.” The six properties are among 26 named in the city of Eureka’s lawsuit against the Squireses in January 2011, alleging “ongoing and pervasive” violations. With the exception of a vacant parcel and the Squireses’ personal residence, the 26 properties constitute the couple’s entire holdings within the city limits.

could change as the litigation unfolds — but for now, what is happening with the apparently most-terrible, singled-out six? Are people still living in them? Have the Squireses fixed the violations? Last week, many apartments in those buildings seemed lived in. Two tenants we contacted spoke freely. Others wouldn’t talk. Some wanted to complain about problems they say the Squireses haven’t fixed, but they didn’t want to be identified, saying they feared being evicted. And many apparently weren’t home, or it was difficult to get to their front doors without trespassing. Brian Gerving, chief building official for the city of Eureka, gave us a rundown on the status of the six properties — for some of which the Squireses have gotten permits to do extensive work, he said. But many violations remain. 117-119 Fifth St. This is where the Squireses have done the most repairs, said Gerving. Since 2002, the city has been citing this two-building property, which contains a commercial space, two apartments and six boarding rooms. Among the issues: broken windows, crumbling stucco, cockroaches, plumbing and electrical violations, and a lack of emergency exits, natural lighting and ventilation in some apartments. The Squireses have finally repaired the dilapidated facade. But multiple issues remain inside.  202 Third St./315 C St. Mark Lufkin, of Lufkin Photo at 202 Third St., wasn’t home when we stopped by his quirky, Old West false-front styled studio. But he phoned later. His place is in good shape, he said, and in fact has had no code violations. It’s the big warehouse on the same parcel, addressed 315 C St., that’s got problems. Lufkin, who’s rented his place from the Squireses for 12 years, said he’s on good terms with Floyd Squires. “I had a leaking water heater — a slow leak that I had told him was not urgent,” Lufkin noted, adding without rancor, “But it did take him a year to replace that water heater.” At 315 C, says Gerving, the 1950s-era warehouse has been illegally converted into two apartments. The city ordered the apartments vacated last January, before it filed its lawsuit, and had the power disconnected. Nobody’s living in them now, as far as Gerving knows. But “nothing’s been done to resolve the violations,” either, he said.  1637 Third St. Andrew Craig, who lives at this rambling apartment building with his mother, was standing barefoot outside last Friday afternoon talking to a friend. He said he has no problems with the Squireses’

management. “Our house is in pretty good shape,” Craig said. “If we have a problem, they have one of their repairmen come right out.” Gerving said the Squireses have not applied for permits to repair the numerous violations in the five units on this property, including a rotting porch, broken windows and damage to a couple of apartments still unrepaired after a longago fire. 1233 A St. Pigeons were getting in the attic and pooping everywhere, filling the gutters and endangering the health of the residents of the six apartments here, said Gerving. There were electrical and plumbing violations. Some apartments lacked emergency exits, others natural light and ventilation. Water heaters were installed improperly. In March, the Squireses got a permit to resolve some violations; a subsequent inspection by the city found the work to be incomplete.  607 Summer St./119 West Sixth St. Of the six units in this large, shabby, pale yellow Victorian, two lack emergency exits and natural light. There are miscellaneous plumbing and electrical violations elsewhere; an apartment without a functional heater; and walls put up in two units without a construction permit. Gerving said the Squireses got a permit in June to do repairs, but a later inspection revealed most of the violations remained.  216 Third St. Fourteen apartments occupy this smudgy white block of a building on the edge of Old Town. Over the years, the city says, some of them have had inoperable heaters, plumbing and electrical issues, inadequate emergency exits, smoke alarm issues, broken windows, cockroaches and rotten siding. “They got a permit in January 2011 to do siding repairs, and those have not been completed,” Gerving said.  Gerving said his department periodically gets calls from some of Squireses’ tenants asking what’s going on. “They’re wondering when things are going to get fixed, and we tell them we’re waiting on the court of appeals,” Gerving said. The city continues to take in new complaints as well, and has opened some new code enforcement cases on some of the Squireses’ properties, although Gerving didn’t have an exact count. “Many, many of these properties have had issues for years — literally 20 years in some cases,” he said. The Squireses did not respond to our request for an interview. Their attorney, Bradford Floyd, said the trial for the city’s case has been set for Oct. 1. ●

Blog Jammin’ Arcata’s Panhandling Law Too Broad, Says LA Times In an editorial that’s bound to make the Arcata Chamber of Commerce wince, the Los Angeles Times today came out against the city’s 2010 panhandling ordinance, saying: The city’s frustration is understandable, but its remedy is too broad and too punitive, emblematic of the excesses that many municipalities succumb to in confronting the unsightly but all too human problems associated with panhandling. Political activist Richard Salzman filed suit against the city last year, claiming that the ordinance’s geographic restrictions against begging violate the First Amendment. The Times’ editorial board agrees: Yes, it can be irritating to be confronted by poverty while exiting a store, but the tender sensibilities of shoppers cannot be allowed to outweigh the rights of Americans. A decision on the case is expected soon. ● WEATHER / BY RYAN BURNS / AUG. 10, 5:48 P.M.

It’s Official: Weather Ain’t Normal If coastal Humboldtians have been wondering just where the heck our summer is, you have good reason: Last month was tied for the cloudiest ever recorded in Eureka, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, whose database stretches from 1887 through 2005. According to Shawn Palmquist, a meteorologist at the group’s Woodley Island station, 22 of July’s 30 days were considered “cloudy.” Only three times has a Eureka July been so gloomy — in 1889, 1972 and 1998. Palmquist explained NOAA’s methodology: Each day (from sunrise to sunset) gets divided into eight sections. If zero-totwo of those sections are predominantly cloudy, then the day is considered “clear.” If three-to-six sections have cloud cover, the day is deemed “partly cloudy.” A fullfledged “cloudy” day is one that’s at least seven-eighths blocked from the sun. Our June was normal, with 12 cloudy days, Palmquist said. So far in August, six READ FULL POSTS AND SEE PHOTOS AT

of the nine days have been cloudy, putting us on pace to exceed the monthly average of 14. As Hank Sims pointed out on the Lost Coast Outpost last month, it’s been unseasonably chilly, too: Eureka was the most unusually cold place in the U.S. through the first six months of this year, again according to NOAA. It should be acknowledged that the rest of the country would probably trade their summer weather for ours in a hot minute: July was the hottest month on record in the United States. ● GOVERNMENT, POLITICS / BY RYAN BURNS / AUG. 8, NOON

Eureka Council Reaffirms Commitment to Create Jobs Last night, the Eureka City Council unanimously voted to adopt a harbor revitalization resolution presented by a community group, but only after it was determined that the document doesn’t legally bind the city to do anything. Councilmember Linda Atkins said she was concerned about some of the big-ticket projects listed as goals in the resolution, including container shipping and the east-west rail proposal. She said studies have shown those goals to be unrealistic and expressed doubt about achieving public approval for them. But the rest of the council members voiced support for the document, saying it showed vision and served to reaffirm their commitment to creating jobs. After public comments and some discussion among the council, Atkins asked City Attorney Cyndy Day-Wilson whether the resolution would create any legal obligations for the city. The language of the document asks the council to resolve, among other things, to develop “within one year a cohesive and coordinated marketing plan” and to work with other agencies “to obtain funding/financing for infrastructure projects such as dock repairs and improvements; dredging [and] East-West rail … .” Day-Wilson said the resolution does not carry any legal weight. Atkins said that “in the spirit of cooperation” she would support the document. Thus was the council resolved.

River Robbery

Wading into the murky depths of illegal water diversions The last two years were

Some of it is going to illegal diversions, and specifically to marijuana grows. That we know. How much? That’s where things get murky. “Unfortunately at this point, the evidence is largely anecdotal,” says Friends of the Eel River Executive Director Scott Greacen. “Nobody seems to have the kind of overarching data that would allow us to evaluate even for one stream system — let alone entire watersheds on the scale of the 3,700-square-mile Eel — what the

wet ones for Humboldt County, according to U.S. Geological Survey data. At one gage in Miranda, flows in the Eel River soared to roughly double the historical average in late 2009, but fell below average by the following October. A winter deluge of nearly 2,000 cubic feet per second became a fall trickle of less than 100 cfs, and a similar pattern played out in 2010-11. The rains came. Then the water disappeared.



and diesel pumps, and concrete dams blocking tributaries and throwing off the water’s delicate Ph balance. The department plans to file charges on dozens of violations from that one sweep alone — and the season is just beginning. In the coming months, the driest and most critical for the county’s watersheds, the grows and diversions will only intensify. But try to quantify exactly how much secret damage is being done to streams big and small, and it quickly becomes apparent that the details are cloudier than a sedimentchoked pool. No 30,000 government agency 20,000 has devoted serious time or resources to 10,000 track illicit diversions. No one is certain whether the problem is getting worse. And no one is sure what 1,000 the hell can be done to fight back. DAILY Discharge, cubic feet per second


magine a stream. Cool, clear water dances over rocks smoothed by time. Pond skaters skim the sunlight-flecked surface. Dragonflies flit between clumps of grass. Birds chirp in the trees overhead. And under the water, tiny endangered salmon — coho, Chinook, steelhead — dart among the shadows. Now imagine that same stream dammed, poisoned with chemical fertilizers, drained by irrigation pipes. The trees slashed and the soil eroded. Garbage and debris strewn about. The bugs, the birds and, yes, the fish — all gone. It happens — far too often according to those who monitor Humboldt’s rivers and tributaries — and it’s part of a larger problem that might be sucking our already parched waterways dry. In June, state Fish and Game wardens discovered multiple grows outfitted with illegal water diversions on the Trinity River, featuring hundreds of feet of black PVC snaking through wooden boxes

impacts of illegal diversions are. [But] we know there are a lot of them.” Not every illegal diversion is feeding a pot patch. Some water legal crops or spin a small turbine for household power. However, Greacen says, “diversions for small domestic use or non-consumptive hydropower diversions could be made legal relatively easily with pretty straightforward compliance. The issue remains that most people don’t want to let the system know who they are or where they are because their source of income exposes them to law enforcement pressure.” And the pressure on rivers seems to be growing. “Cumulatively we’re seeing diversions impact low-flow season more and more every year,” says Jane Arnold, staff environmental scientist with Fish and Game. “I can’t say who’s diverting what, where and when, but what we’re seeing on the gages and hearing anecdotally is that there’s less water in these wet years than we’d anticipate.” Even District Attorney Paul Gallegos, whose office has begun targeting growers for environmental violations including illegal diversions, has no way to quantify the problem. “The best we can do is speculate,” he says. “It’s unsupported by numbers.”

Why is data so hard to come

by? “Monitoring stream flows is an expensive process,” explains Josh Smith, who keeps tabs on the South Fork of the Trinity River with the Watershed Research and Training Center in Hayfork. “We don’t have funding sources to keep stream gages open. On the whole South Fork watershed, which is about 1,000 square miles, there’s one gage.” In addition to thin resources, there’s the issue of safety. Like many of his colleagues countywide, Smith frequently treks out winding dirt roads and into thick, uncharted forests. Alone. “Most of the stuff I’ve found I’ve found accidentally, and

then I get out of there,” he says. “I have friends in law enforcement and they say it’s not worth it to stick around. It affects how I work and where our crews can go.” While it may be impossible to draw firm big-picture conclusions, Smith is convinced illegal diversions are diminishing water quality — and killing fish and other aquatic life. All of Humboldt’s waterways face a litany of perils: rising temperatures, sedimentation, pollutants, algae blooms and, in some cases, major legal diversions for hydroelectric power and industrial agriculture to the south. In fact, each of the county’s four major rivers — the Klamath, the Trinity, the Mad and the Eel — and many of its tributaries are on the EPA’s list of “impaired waters,” meaning they are too warm, too dirty or too dewatered to meet state water quality standards. Restoration efforts have pulled some rivers back from the brink, but none is robust enough to withstand continued impacts and the looming threat of drought. Drawing water, even a little, out of streams raises overall water temperature, Smith explains. And a rise of a few degrees can be the difference between life and death for salmon, trout or other members of the salmonid family. Further, Smith says, most of the diversions he’s seen don’t use proper screening techniques. “They’re sucking up a lot of the juvenile fish and taking them up into the hills to their grows,” he says. Out of the frying pan, into the pump. Smith has been on the job for almost seven years. In that time he’s noticed a marked increase in the size and scope of diversions. “There have been people growing marijuana in the woods here for decades. It’s really obvious the newcomers have a different system — we’ve seen

“Well, not really,” Ben says, “But I am close to perfecting my fish taco recipe!” Ben loves to cook and develop recipes. He has worked at Murphy’s for four years. “I work at all of the Murphy’s in the meat department and know a lot of the regulars at each store. Ben’s favorite cut of meat? “The Flatiron is definitely underrated!” says Ben. “It is a tender, tasty cut of meat and great for BBQ. I like it broiled for steak and eggs in the morning.” Ben also attends Humboldt State University. He doesn’t have much spare time. But when he does, he takes off camping or snowboarding. Ben shares his home with two Queensland Heelers, Gypsy, and her pup with the rather unorthodox name of Kermit the Dog. Their favorite pastime is chasing pesky seagulls at the beach.

clear-cutting and terrace-building to make these large-scale aggregate grows,” he says “Those are the ones that affect water quality in a lot of ways, including the amount of water they’re taking.” Greacen draws a similar distinction. “There are a lot of different kinds of diversions,” he says. “Some are terrible — people who block entire headwaters streams. Others are people who pump once a week with a one-inch line from a fairly substantial stream. Those are both illegal in the eyes of the law, [but] their impacts on stream health are radically different.” Gallegos points to what are known as the “cartel” grows — massive operations on state, federal or private land that move in and out with little regard for the surrounding ecology. “It’s a different game,” he says, “and these aren’t the same players.”

cooperation and a different relationship with the establishment.” “This county has changed so much,” she continues. “The people who are enforcing the laws aren’t necessarily our adversaries. In some cases they’re acting as our advocates.” Fish and Game’s Arnold echoes that sentiment. She says she wants people to understand that coming into compliance with state water regulations doesn’t mean getting busted. “I don’t have the time or regulatory authority to look at anything other than fish and wildlife. I’m only focused on the department’s mission when I go out to look at diversions,” she says. Fear, however, isn’t the only hurdle. Turning an illegal diversion into a legal one can be complex and arduous, partly because you’re dealing with two different permitting agencies: the state Water Resources Control Board and Fish and Game. A lot of people aren’t aware of this distinction. As a result, Arnold concedes, most landowners are probably diverting illegally in the eyes of at least one agency, if not both. Arnold defends the system, pointing out that the water board and her department focus on different aspects of water use — shared rights versus wildlife protection. Still, she acknowledges that the process is cumbersome. “We’re used to getting along on the roads,” she says, likening the regulatory labyrinth, perhaps unflatteringly, to dealing with the DMV. “Now we have to get along on the rivers.”

the old guard. A plainspoken firebrand affectionately dubbed “Anna Banana,” she moved to Southern Humboldt in the 1970s, part of the fabled back-to-theland migration that planted the seeds of today’s pot culture. While she still grows under a medical 215 permit, she doesn’t like the direction the industry is headed — specifically when it comes to disregard for natural resources. “If I had my way we’d be out of Afghanistan and they’d send the National Guard out to walk the river and inspect every pump,” she says — and it doesn’t sound like she’s kidding. “On one hand, it’s fascism. On the other hand, the real war is the environment.” Hamilton wants to launch a campaign, similar to a recent anti-diesel “stop the spill” effort, that will, in her words, “scare the shit” out of unconscientious water hogs. (She says she hasn’t thought of a catchy slogan, but does throw out “Don’t Fuck With the Fish.”) Hamilton hopes to mobilize people so effectively that “if you spill dirt in the river and put a straw in, you’re going to get complaints from your neighbors, you’re going to get snitched off.” For years growers have harbored distrust, if not downright disdain, for cops and government officials. Hamilton thinks it’s time to change that, to build “a culture of

Of all the people

who worry about waning rivers, Tasha McKee, executive director of Sanctuary Forest, is easily among the most optimistic. Not because she denies the severity of the problem, but because she’s managed to do something about it. McKee’s focus is the Mattole River, a minor yet critical waterway in Southern Humboldt. While McKee says the Mattole isn’t being tapped for any “major, industrial-level grows,” plenty of people are pumping from the river. And almost every year, by late summer, the Mattole is in crisis mode, reduced to a trickle between brackish pools. To curb the effects of human use, Sanctuary Forest launched a storage-tank program in 2004. Funded largely by grant money, the program purchases large tanks for landowners, who fill the tanks during the winter with rainfall and flows tapped from a robust Mattole and use the water during the dry months. Usually starting in mid to late summer, and certainly during

the bone-dry slog through September and October, landowners agree not to pump from the river. A recent tour of one of the tanks revealed an impressive sight: 50,000 gallons of water, buoyed by the recent summer rain, encased in a glistening 50,000 gallon drum, outfitted with a series of safety shutoff valves to prevent accidental draining. The tank, surrounded by brown grass and brush, will later be used to water crops, take showers, flush toilets ­— everything. And the tanks don’t raise property tax valuations, since Sanctuary Forest technically owns them for the first 15 years. The goal is to end 80 percent of all dry-season diversions — legal and illegal — on the Mattole. So far, McKee says, the project is about halfway there. And not everyone joining is a private homesteader; this year the program will add Whitethorn Elementary School and Whitethorn Construction to its ranks. McKee admits some of her project’s success is due to its small scale, but says that variations of it could be used anywhere. Indeed, the idea of storing water was championed by everyone from Hamilton to Gallegos.

This water storage tank, installed with the help of Sanctuary Forest, is part of a program that encourages people to store high flows in winter, and spare the Mattole River during the dry season. photo by Jacob Shafer.

But, McKee cautions, simply halting diversions isn’t enough. She says the problem goes deeper. Literally. Eight years ago, McKee recalls, she walked a stretch of the Mattole with Fish and Game to inspect pump screens. Along the way, she observed the flow of various tributaries. She fully expected that the most heavily tapped tributaries would be the most meager. “Instead I saw that they were all barely trickling.” The reason, McKee says, is that the ground can’t hold water like it once did. Human endeavors — from roads to logging to overgrazing — have disrupted the natural hydrology countywide. If the soil is our water tank, we’ve riddled it with holes.

“Diversions are important,” McKee says, “but if we’re going to withstand droughts we’ve got to repair our watershed.” Still, she adds, “we’ve got to deal with human use [diversions] first, so people don’t take all the water.” Greacen agrees. He says that while illegal diversions may not be the biggest drain on the county’s rivers and streams, they’re “the highest impact that we have real control over.” We can work to improve watershed health, he argues, but “even if we invested a ton of money, it’s going to take time for that to filter out. Meanwhile water diversions we can do something about right away.” continued on next page • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Aug. 16, 2012

Storage tank programs

and educational outreach are all well and good, but few believe they’ll solve, or even damp down, the problem. “A lot of people, regardless of their legal situation, are doing the right thing because they care about the place and they care about the fish,” says Greacen. “At the same time, a small minority are going huge [and] having the vast majority of the impacts.” Watershed monitor Josh Smith concurs. “The big-time growers who are just greedy aren’t changing their ways,” he says. “The people having the biggest impact on water don’t care and aren’t going to care.” Unless, of course, the profit motive is removed. You can’t have a discussion about any aspect of the marijuana industry — including water diversions — without talk-

ing about legalization. It’s a thorny topic, and a huge one. But when it comes to water alone, there’s a pretty clear consensus among scientists and even some members of law enforcement: decriminalization would help. A lot. “I would assume it would come with some sort of regulation, like private forestry,” says Smith. “Rules about when, where and how you can grow, how much water you can draw, best management practices.” In an unregulated black market, growers have no incentive to be conscientious. In fact, those who sack the land for maximum profit are at a competitive advantage. Yank the industry out of the shadows and the darkest elements would disappear. Maybe. “There will always be outlaws, people who want to rape and pillage the environment,” says Gallegos. “[But] you can bring most people into the fold and reduce the

burden on the community.” While we hold our collective breath (or not) the best answer may be to go after the worst environmental offenders and hope the fear motivates — and trickles down. “I think it’s absolutely important to target people who are operating in a way, in whatever industry, that creates the potential for significant harms to public trust values like endangered fish, water quality,

t’s an odd time of year. On the one hand, the sunflowers are blooming and the sunshine seems to be telling us summer is here — finally. Then there are the returning (and new) college students, back for school. (Welcome!) That tells us — sigh — summer is over. Confusing. At any rate, there’s still time for a few more summer festivals. Mad River Summerfest starts Friday evening with most of the action on Saturday. The festival has moved further east, leaving the riverside Pump Station for Christie’s Pumpkin Patch near Blue Lake. The party once again features all local music with lots of beer and food and fun for kids, including the ranch’s straw maze. New this year, a Friday evening tribute band component with Silver Hammer doing The Beatles and The Miracle Show doing The Dead. Saturday’s action starts early (8 a.m.) with a pancake breakfast (with mimosas!) and Om Shala Yoga guiding poses. The music marathon begins at 11:30 a.m. with the cool, folky Lyndsey Battle Trio followed by hippie bluegrass band Kindred Spirits at 12:15 p.m. The Trouble starts rockin’ at 12:45 p.m. The Grass Band jams at 2 p.m. The Janky Mallets drummers

Kills Sorrow could be just another new-acoustic stringband with stellar players. The young band is named for radio station WJKS, “Where Joy Kills Sorrow,” where Bill Monroe played back in the day. Founder Matthew Arcara won the National Flatpicking Championship in 2006. Mandolinist Jacob Joliff is at Berklee on a full ride scholarship. You may know banjo man Wes Corbett from The Bee Eaters with Tristan Clarridge. Seems to be the ladies who shift the sound toward an indie rock feel: bassist Bridget Kearny, who won the John Lennon Songwriting Contest a few years ago, contributes literate lyrics; Emma Beaton sings them — great combination all around. See for yourself Friday night at the Arcata Theatre Lounge.   When the British two-tone ska wave hit at the end of the ‘70s, one of the top bands was The English Beat (known over there simply as The Beat). Front man Dave Wakeling went on to found General Public; today he leads an all-star ska outfit playing the old hits you know, plus some new songs. He’ll be at Humboldt Brews Friday night with DJ Red spinning appropriate 45s to warm up the crowd. Catch a double dose of funk Saturday at the Jambalaya with local funksters The Bump Foundation opening for Big Sam’s Funky Nation. You might have seen New Orleans

trombonist “Big Sam” Williams, formerly of The Dirty Dozen and The Soul Rebels, leading his Nation on a couple of Treme episodes — he’s even better in person. A second chance to hear Bump Foundation comes Sunday afternoon (2 p.m.) when the band plays for free on the Arcata Plaza as part of Arcata Main Street’s August Concerts on the Plaza series. Worldly funk will be Monday at the Jambalaya as a new local trio with Pete Ciotti and B Swizlo opens for The Funk Ark out of Washington DC. Ark keyboardist Will Rast says, “To me, funk is the universal connection linking all music, people like James Brown and the JBs, The Meters, Santana, Fela Kuti, Medeski, Martin and Wood and The Fania Allstars. The Funk Ark is my shot at making the music that I love to listen to.” That seems like a good plan to me. As the name implies, it’s hard to pigeonhole SquarPeg, a kinda jazzy combo with Tina Garsen and Jill Petricca on woodwinds and Gregg Moore on tuba etc. playing Saturday at Robert Goodman Wines. As Moore explains, “The trio proposes a chamber music for the 21st century, combining musical textures from a multitude of disciplines into fascinating new sounds.” It’s something he calls “stranger chamber music.” Strange, sure, but I like strange. l

Sweet 116 What’s the best part of the Humboldt County Fair? Tough call, right? Is it that first, powdery sugar bite of deep-fried funnel cake? The thrill of wagering on the ponies? If you’re young and hardy maybe it’s getting strapped inside a mechanical stomachscrambler (aka a carnival ride) or winning a blue ribbon for your droop-eared English lop. (That’s a rabbit breed, btw.) A personal favorite: those goofy, form-fitting bodysuits worn by freshly sheared sheep. Have you seen these things? They come in vibrant colors (pink cammo, tie dye), and they make the sheep look like Prince during his assless pants phase. Best of all? They’re called “lambie jammies.” This year’s organizers had to do some fiscal scrambling after the state stopped subsidizing county fairs, but thanks in part to a new nonprofit, Friends of the Humboldt County Fair, the annual tradition is coming back for a “sweet” 116th time, Aug. 15 through Aug. 26. If you’ve picked up the paper on Wednesday, then it’s opening day! Find the red barn before 4 p.m. to enter a drawing for a free cooked beef roast. You also have three chances to catch Tina Marie, Master Hypnotist. Don’t let her take your beef! (Both Tina and the meat return daily.) Other things you should know: There’s no horse racing on either Thursday (the 16th or the 23rd), but admission is totally free those days. It’s also free on Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 20 and 21. Otherwise it’s $8, $6 for seniors, $4 for kids age 6-12 and free for the littlest ones. Parking fees went up a buck this year, so it’s $3. If you wanna bet on the horses (or the mules), you’ve got eight days to choose from. Racing admission is free on both Wednesdays (15th, 22nd) and both Fridays (17th, 24th). Saturday, Aug. 25, is Ladies Hat Day at the races: Women in formal headwear get in gratis. Want entertainment? How ’bout a huge mariachi band? “Hispanic Day,” Aug. 26, will feature Mariachi Real de Mexico from 1-4 p.m., followed by some Lucha Libre (the Mexican wrestling with crazy masks). Other acts include cowgirl rope tricks, a flying dog show and a dude wrestling an alligator. Younguns will be exhibiting their livestock Aug. 15-19, and the grown-ups get their turn Aug. 22-26. For loads more info, including a full list of vendors and exhibits, visit — Ryan Burns


Locavores, piscivores, granivores — pretty much all flavors of vores — should find something tempting to nibble at a local food expo this weekend at Mad River Brewery’s tasting room in Blue Lake. The nosh fest benefits the Discovery Museum in Eureka, which will be sending a kid-captivating team to run a “Kid Zone,” complete with giant hula hoops, giant Legos and other traveling exhibits. “We’re hoping to have a day in the sun out in Blue Lake,” says Lynn Langdon, the museum’s executive director. “Sun — for one day this summer!” It would be nice. Even gray days come with hungry, though, so might as well get your sampling self out to the brewery, at 101 Taylor Way, from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 19. At least 16 local culinary creators,

including Bless My Soul, Fish Brothers, Loleta Cheese Factory, BRIO Breadworks, Tomaso’s, Bien Padre, Humboldt Hotsauce, Drake’s Glen Creations, Patty Cakes Unlimited and many more, plan to offer tasting samples. Music will tumble in from The Tumbleweeds starting at 1 p.m., followed by the No Good Redwood Ramblers at 3 p.m. The museum is asking for a $5 donation, “but if you’d like to give more we’re always open to it,” says Langdon. With the donation, the main food tasting is free, but beer is extra and so are platters of barbecued oysters that the museum will be selling. The day will also include a raffle to benefit Nicole Nada, co-owner of Arcata Scoop, who is undergoing cancer treatment. — Carrie Peyton Dahlberg

One Funny Weekend As the big kahuna at the local comedy magazine, Savage Henry Independent Times , CORNELL REID PHOTO BY CHRIS DURANT Chris Durant is supposed to be funny, or at least know funny. He’s also one of the main organizers of this weekend’s standup-apalooza Savage Henry Independent Times and Giggles Comedy Festival, aka SHITS and Giggles. But he readily admits that he’s not much of a standup comedian. “I’m better at writing comedy,” he said, sitting at his cluttered desk in the sumptuous Savage Henry office in Jacoby’s Storehouse. To illustrate his lack of standup skills, he offered an example. “There was this joke I tried to tell the last time we did a comedy show at Jambalaya: We have two small dogs and hardwood floors, so it’s like having Gregory Hines for a roommate when they run around. It didn’t go over, so I was like, ‘You’ve never heard of Gregory Hines?’ And the crowd was like, ‘No, we’ve heard of him.’ No one was laughing. I guess part of the job of being a host is to bomb so the other comics seem funny.” He may do a couple of introductions over the weekend, but mostly he’ll be running around trying to keep everything on track, a monumental job considering that the SHITS and Giggles Fest includes 15 comedy sets in eight venues plus a teaser set at the Mad River Summerfest. It’s modeled in part on Portland’s Bridgetown Comedy Festival and San Francisco’s even more ambitious multi-weekend Sketchfest, both with multiple standup venues. And a number of comedians were recruited at both festivals. The original plan was to do the whole festival on two stages at a local casino, but when that plan fell through, well, suffice to say Plan B ended up being much more complex.

As we’ve noted on these pages before, the local comedy scene seems to be growing by leaps and bounds, in part thanks to Durant’s three-year-old comedy mag. Savage Henry started with a comedy open mic, So You Think You Can Funny, which Durant noted was named by the Journal resident funny man, Andrew Goff. “I was surprised at the caliber of people who came out. Now we have a pool of people who open up with touring comics” when they come to town. The BA-DUM-CHH comedy troupe came out of the open mic and, says Durant, “picked up the torch” when he got tired of dealing with o-micing. Watch for BA-DUM-CHHs Sherae O’Shaughnessy, Nando Molina and Joe Deschaine, who are all doing sets one place or more. Other recommendations from Durant include a pair of former local comics: Josh Argyle, who grew up in Eureka, and Cornell Reid from Arcata. He’s also a big fan of Thursday’s headliner, Kyle Kinane, an L.A.-based comic who, among other things, appeared on Conan and did his own half-hour Comedy Central Presents show. “He’s more like a storyteller talking about messed up situations he’s come across, really funny,” said the big guy. Other faves: Howard Kramer, host of the Who Charted? podcast, Alex Cole, returning after a successful local show, Ian Karmel from Portland, Nick Rutherford from L.A., and too many others to name in this space. “We want to show them all that there’s a comedy scene here,” said Durant. (You’ll find the full schedule in this week’s calendar.) Those who want to see as much of the festival as possible will want the “fashionable” $25 wristband that gets you into every venue; otherwise admission is venue by venue, with prices ranging from $15 for Thursday’s big opening night show at Mazzotti’s, to free for some shows, including the Summerfest showcase. Advance tickets and more details at or on the Savage Henry Facebook page. — Bob Doran

Pas de Deux

Streep and Jones rekindle magic while Ferrell and Galifianakis phone in The Campaign By Devan King


HOPE SPRINGS. Scrolling through Meryl Streep’s résumé on, it’s nearly impossible to find a bad film. Try it. I dare you. Sure, there are silly films and sappy films, films you wouldn’t watch without your children or grandparents present; none of them are bad, though. On the surface, Hope Springs appears to be this sort of film. The trailers portray it as a quirky, post-menopausal How Stella Got Her Groove Back, but the trailers lie. Hope Springs is about the pain and strength that goes into repairing a marriage that’s devoid of intimacy and emotional connection. It’s more like How Stella Had a Big Breakthrough in Therapy. After more than 30 years of marriage, Kay (Streep) and Arnold (Tommy Lee Jones) have become more akin to roommates than lovers. They sleep in separate rooms and sex is something they vaguely remember. Arnold is cold and distant, working within the limiting confines of the gender roles of his generation. Kay is tangled up in her own anxiety, desperately trying to reconnect with her husband via any means necessary. After failed attempts to resurrect the passion in their lives, Kay signs them up for a weeklong intensive therapy session led by Dr. Bernie Feld (Steve Carell). Despite his grumbling refusal, Arnold tags along once he realizes that it’s the only chance he has to save his marriage. While the plot is not completely original, the film is bolstered by an intricate and beautifully written script. Screenwriter Vanessa Taylor (Game of Thrones) deserves kudos for a story that’s

both poignant and charming, not an easy line to walk. She doesn’t exaggerate the pain of the main characters, nor does she place them in unnecessarily absurd situations (the relentless approach of most romantic comedies). The therapy sessions are agonizingly uncomfortable to watch, lending more verisimilitude to the whole film. Taylor and director David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada) don’t mine the therapy sessions for laughs or reduce them to satire. Instead they allow those scenes to stand on their own, building tension and pushing the characters to their limits. Carell, meanwhile, delivers a performance equal to his work in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World and Dan in Real Life. His grasp on comedy is tenacious, and he wields his skills carefully and precisely. There’s nothing hackneyed or stereotypical in his portrayal of the marriage therapist. It takes an amazing understanding of timing and character to propel a dramatic story forward while also providing the comic relief. Hope Springs will rip you apart a bit before it puts you back together, but it can still be considered a “feel good” movie. It’s a medium weight romantic comedy, perfectly cast and excellently delivered. As long as you don’t watch it with your grandparents, it’s sure to entertain. PG13. 100m. THE CAMPAIGN. As we approach high tide in the election cycle and the political rhetoric grows more rampantly ludicrous, political satire has to push itself to extremes in order to stay relevant. Or at least that’s how I validated my excitement about the new Will Ferrell/Zach Galifianakis farce-apalooza The Campaign. Ferrell and Galifianakis are genuinely talented and have a comedic chemistry that meshes extremely well on screen. Nonetheless, like other films directed by Jay Roach (Dinner for Schmucks, Meet the Fockers), The Campaign wastes a talented cast. Longtime North Carolina Congressman Cam Brady (Ferrell) has let the power of politics go to his head; one scandal after another has left his reputation in ruins. Brady’s district is key for the unethical business plot of The Motch brothers (John Lithgow and Dan Aykroyd), a pair of exaggerated one-percenters. Fearing the loss of their political pawn, the brothers throw their money behind a new candidate, Marty Huggins (Galifianakis). Huggins is the poster child for soft, southern hospitality, but he has a questionable grip on his heterosexuality and a color-blind fashion sense. Brady’s narcissistic machismo is supposed to clash against Huggins’ feminine humility, but both characters come across as recycled and phoned-in. Ferrell’s depiction of Brady is lazily close to his impression of George W. Bush, an obvious similarity that screenwriters Shawn Harwell and Chris Henchy must

have overlooked when they set the film in a southern state. Galifianakis’ character is quite literally recycled: In the Funny or Die web series Between Two Ferns, Galifianakis occasionally portrays his twin brother, Seth Galifianakis, who is identical to Marty Huggins, save for the name. The Campaign has its moments, but most of them are in the preview. Aykroyd and Lithgow (whose characters are eerily reminiscent of the Duke Brothers in 1983’s Trading Places) are a sight for sore eyes, but their short roles are only good for a light chuckle. Dylan McDermott delivers the film’s best performance as the overbearing campaign manager. Then again, he may have stood out because he’s the only one with a hint of subtlety. Subtlety is in Ferrell’s wheelhouse (see: Stranger than Fiction, Everything Must Go), but he has yet to harness it in a major studio comedy. The Campaign goes on the shelf with Ferrell’s other flops: Semi-Pro and Blades of Glory. R. 85m.


RUBY SPARKS. Calvin (Paul Dano) is a novelist who breaks his writer’s block by creating a female character who both inspires and loves him. When she materializes on his couch a week later (in the form of adorable indie actress Zoe Kazan, who also wrote the screenplay), Calvin is agog. From the directors of Little Miss Sunshine. R. 103m. THE EXPENDABLES 2. Seniors on steroids return with more action than you can shake a walking stick at. This time out, Sly Stallone hands over directing duties to Simon “Con Air” West while reuniting with Schwarzenegger, Statham, Willis, Van Damme, et al. R. 102m. PARANORMAN. Shot in the stopmotion animation style of Coraline (2009) and Corpse Bride (2005), this supernatural family film follows a misunderstood boy who must save his town from zombies and ghosts. PG. 93m THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN. From the author of What’s Eating Gilbert Grape comes a fantasy about a childless couple who write down all their hopes for a young’un, then bury them in a box in the backyard. Lo, a child appears. PG. 100m. SPARKLE. “American Idol” alum Jordin Sparks stars in this drama about a 1960s Motown girl group torn apart by fame, featuring Whitney Houston in her final film role. PG13. 116m. HIT AND RUN. Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell and Bradley Cooper star in this crude comedy about an ex-bank robber who blows his Witness Protection Plan cover in order to help his girlfriend. R. 100m. The Arcata Theatre Lounge will host a mini film fest Saturday night with a pair of documentary shorts: Black Rock Horse offers a 30-minute look behind the con-

struction and deployment of a massive, rolling Trojan horse at last year’s Burning Man festival, and The Bus chronicles the history and cultural impact of the Volkswagen bus, which should probably be declared Arcata’s official vehicle. Doors open at 8 p.m. on Sunday, at 6 p.m., the ATL will screen The Dark Crystal, the 1982 fantasy film from Muppet maestros Jim Henson and Frank Oz. Next Wednesday’s Sci-Fi Pint and Pizza Night is something of a departure with Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins (2005) followed by Italian Spiderman (2005), a deliberately campy homage to Italy’s action-adventure films of the 1960s and 1970s.


THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. Director Mark Webb manages to give Spidey new dimension in this satisfying, if extraneous, reboot. PG13. 136m. THE BOURNE LEGACY. Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) replaces Matt Damon in the action franchise based on Robert Ludlum’s international thriller novels. PG13. 125m. BRAVE. Pixar’s stunning animation doesn’t disappoint, even if this tale of a precocious Scottish princess lacks the studio’s usual depth. PG. 93m. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Christopher Nolan completes his Batman trilogy with this mournful, contemplative blockbuster that still brings the exhilarating action. PG13. 164m. DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: DOG DAYS. Slapstick kid comedy in which the titular “wimpy kid” has a mishap at a public pool, among other misadventures. PG. 94m. ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT. More prehistoric hijinks from Manny the mammoth, Diego the saber-tooth and Sid, the lisping sloth. PG. 94m. MAGIC MIKE. Channing Tatum stars as a male stripper/aspiring entrepreneur in director Steven Soderbergh’s gritty-yetfleshy drama. R. 110m. STEP UP REVOLUTION. Go for the dancing; stay for the … well, the dancing is pretty much the only draw here. PG13. 97m. TED. This feature film debut from Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane, about a pothead Bostonian (Mark Wahlberg) and his sentient teddy bear, is crass, uproarious and surprisingly touching. R. 106m. TOTAL RECALL. Lackluster and pointless remake of the 1990 Paul Verhoeven film. PG13. 121m. THE WATCH. A sci-fi comedy starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade that wastes a fine cast on crass, formulaic material. R. 101m. —Ryan Burns

ASSESSOR’S PARCEL NO. 520-051-013-000 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 it-

self. 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 information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 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 July 24, 2012 is $133,608.47; 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: 121140 Highway 101, Orick, CA 95555 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address or other common designation, if any, shown herein.

How We Die By Barry Evans


e recently visited a friend who lives near Tillamook, Ore., within the local tsunami zone. I was struck by her fear that when (not if) an undersea earthquake off the Oregon coast set off a huge tsunami, she and her family would be swept away. “It’s all they talk about around here,” she said. It’s certainly good to be aware of tsunami risks. No doubt the death toll from Japan’s 2011 Tohoku earthquake would have been much higher in the absence of basic safety information and planning. Nearly 1,900 people lost their lives in that event, which makes it one of the worst natural disasters in modern times. On the other hand, this event — the strongest known earthquake to hit Japan — was responsible for the death of about one Japanese in 70,000. That’s about the same as a U.S. citizen dying from a bee or wasp sting, and about 10,000 times less than the odds of dying of cancer. If you have relatives in the Midwest or East Coast (or, speaking personally, in the U.K.) you’ve probably been regaled with earthquake warnings. It’s only a matter of time, apparently, until the next really Big One hits, and you’re crazy for living here. You may indeed be crazy (who am I to judge?), but not because you don’t worry about death by seismic action. The 1989 Loma Prieta quake, for instance, resulted in just 63 deaths. That’s less than a week’s worth of California traffic fatalities. Those whose business is risk management would find these examples trivial. Most of us, however, tend to magnify the risks we hear about, the theatrical, newsworthy events — air crashes, for example — while downplaying the everyday ones,

like traffic deaths. Also, we tend to play up (by a factor of up to 1,000!) the risks that we have no control over (flying, say) over those we do (such as driving), which leads in this case to an exaggerated fear of flying. Do the numbers: Driving kills about one person per 70 million passenger miles; domestic flying results in about one death per 10 billion passenger miles. That is, you’re about 140 times safer flying than driving the same distance. So, how will you die? Most likely, as you probably know, is death from heart disease (1 in 6) or cancer (1 in 7). Despite the risk of driving vs. flying, you’re still quite unlikely to die as a result of a vehicle accident (1 in 88) or a plane accident (1 in 7,000). How about dangers that the media is constantly reminding us about? Drowning only accounts for 1 in 1,100 deaths; 1 in 10,000 of us will be electrocuted, while 1 in 120,000 people will die from a dog bite. Shark attacks, beloved of the tabloid press, on average account for one human death, per year worldwide (while we humans kill 100 million sharks annually). Compare that to the 1 in 112 of us who will take our own lives, suicide being twice as common as homicide. Finally, how about those flooding and earthquake risks? Your risk of dying by flooding, including tsunamis, is about 1 in 170,000; while 1 in 150,000 of us will meet our maker as a result of an earthquake. I guess I’ll take my chances in our tsunamiseismic-ridden paradise. l Barry Evans (barryevans9@yahoo. com) considers his odds of being fatally hit by a bus in Mexico at approximately 100 percent.
