Editor: Just an addendum to Linda Parkinson’s fine letter this week (“Pelicans Worth Saving,” Aug. 16). Apparently someone from the Bay Area is making money off fish oil, driving trucks up to collect fish remains. Why not a local person to do this? Less of a negative “footprint” environmentally all around! If we can collect food oil for biodiesel, how about fish oil for gardens? Just saying. Ginni Hassrick, Bayside
local pastured-meat producers such as Humboldt Grassfed Beef and the local restaurants that use their products. And we should encourage all of our local restaurants to use the local pastured meats. Not only are they better for the environment, but they’re also more nutritious than their grain-fed counterparts (I’m looking at you Omega-6s). Finally, I would also encourage Journal readers to check out the most current research regarding human evolution and protein vs. plant-based diets. (Spoiler: The plant-eaters didn’t last long.)

Editor: Ms. Ashley’s assumption (“Eeeeuuu, Meat,” Aug. 9) that vegetarianism is more sustainable or environmentally conscious is ridiculous considering the significant resources used in propping up today’s agriculture system. Journal readers might seek out The Vegetarian Myth by Arcata’s own Lierre Keith. In it she dispels the most commonly held beliefs about vegetarianism. Of course the modern industrial agriculture approach to animal raising is no better. But the closed-cycle system of animal farming practiced by Joel Salatin of the Polyface Farm and others, whereby animals are pastured and can contribute to the whole system, is sustainable. In fact, without the natural fertilizers from animal waste, vital nutrients for plants would have to be supplied by synthetic fertilizers (or some kind of permaculture system). Which is why we should support the
Editor: Ryan Burns’ cover story, “Occupy Broadband” (Aug. 9), somehow omits any mention of a huge downside of wireless broadband — adverse health effects from the radio-frequency microwave radiation (RF/MR) emissions. Just last year the World Health Organization classified RF/ MR as a Class 2B carcinogen, in the same category as lead and DDT. This year the American Academy of Environmental Medicine released a document calling for precaution with regard to Smart Meters and RF/MR in general, “because of the well documented studies showing adverse effects on health.” These published scientific studies were analyzed in the BioInitiative Report (2007), a 650-page document by prestigious scientists and public health experts citing more than 2,000 studies documenting health effects of electromagnetic fields from all sources.

continued from page 4 the real news story. As the Board of Supervisors gets ready to vote on county telecommunications policies, it is critical that journalists provide the public with complete information. I have attended many public meetings with Connie Stewart and Sean McLaughlin in which they pushed heavily for wireless broadband in our communities, but they are not the only people involved here and they do not speak for many of us. Here’s hoping for some balanced journalism. Beverly Filip, Eureka [Editor’s note: The World Health Organization restricted its findings to personal use of wireless cell phones — it found evidence lacking for other situations, including exposures from living near transmission signals for radio, television or wireless communication. It concluded that “limited” evidence suggests radiofrequency electromagnetic fields from personal cell phones are a possible carcinogen, linked to two types of brain tumor, glioma and acoustic neuroma. It defines “limited” evidence as enough to make a cause-and-effect relationship credible, but not so much that chance or bias could be reasonably ruled out. A link to a summary of its findings is on our website, along with a link to some background on the controversial American Academy of Environmental Medicine.] Editor: The article “Occupy Broadband,” which covered the need for increased access to rural areas of Humboldt County through the expansion of fiber optics cable, was interesting but failed to mention a few things locally significant and directly related to the topic. The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors are close to finishing up with the telecommunications section of their Gen-
eral Plan, detailing the county’s interest in facilitating cellular and broadband accessibility throughout the county. The element also details provisions for protecting the public interest in property by providing guidelines for responsible placement of cell towers, which will be implemented through an ordinance further down the road. Of equal interest, Arcata councilmembers recently sent forward a proposal to place a Verizon cellular tower atop the Arcata Ballpark light closest to the Arcata Library. This is in direct conflict with the city’s land use code, which specifically states that telecommunications facilities be placed at least 1,000 feet from residences and 1,500 feet from schools, hospitals and historic districts. A large amount of controversy has developed over this proposal. The council has decided to revisit the issue at a Monday morning meeting on Aug. 27 at 9 a.m. at the council chambers at City Hall.

For Safe Reggae Editor: The Mateel Community Center would like to respond to the “Make Reggae Safe” letter in the Aug. 9 Journal. The letter refers to an alleged sexual assault at the Cooks Valley Campground, but links it directly to us and our event, Reggae on the River. We were appalled and dismayed when we learned of the possible assault. Our hearts go out the woman involved. The safety of attendees at our events is a top priority. Although we had no oversight of Cooks Valley Campground, which held its own, separate music event the same weekend as ours, we did include it in a list of local accommodations on our website.

The Real Blackout Editor: I am dismayed at the sophism in your publisher’s latest missive concerning the rails/trails issue (“News Blackout,” Aug. 16). She presents a false dichotomy. The real “blackout” is her failure to acknowledge the arguments of her opponents. She would lead readers to believe that those who wish to preserve the Arcata-Eureka prism as a railroad are, ipso facto, op-

posed to the creation of a trail. Ms. Hodgson is an intelligent woman who has heard the repeated statements by the Timber Heritage Association (THA) to the effect that THA believes the prism can best be maintained as a rails and trails corridor. I have been to several of the meetings mentioned and I have not a heard a single speaker, from any community group, advocate that no trail should be built and only the rail line should be preserved. Ms. Hodgson blithely asserts that no “viable” plan has been presented for the re-establishment of rail use in the corridor. THA speakers have frequently presented their vision that the tracks should be used to support a jobs- and revenueproducing tourist train. There is no reason why a trail could not exist alongside the rail line. I challenge Ms. Hodgson to present a reasoned and informative argument as to why this is not possible. Yes, it would cost money. This is

one of the concerns that the NCRA committee will be addressing. Is there funding to rebuild the prism as a rails and trails corridor? Why not find the answer? Nowhere in her column does she attempt to explain why THA’s position of “rail and trails” should, or should not, be considered. She ignores THA’s position.

The Election That Wasn’t
Local city council races attract barely enough candidates to fill positions By Ryan Burns
hen it comes to city council elections in Humboldt County this year, well, most don’t even qualify as “elections.” Local municipalities have a serious candidate drought on their hands: Five of the county’s seven incorporated cities won’t see any competition on their November ballots: Arcata, Blue Lake, Ferndale, Rio Dell and Trinidad each qualified just enough candidates to fill the seats up for grabs. Eureka and Fortuna, meanwhile, have just three candidates running for two council seats apiece. In all that makes 19 candidates running for 17 city council seats countywide — the fewest contenders since 1992.
What gives? Are would-be competitors satisfied with the status quo? Have they grown complacent? Cynical? Too busy? Maybe they’re waiting to see about this Mayan apocalypse. Whatever the case, the dearth of office-seekers bodes ill for democracy on the North Coast, according to Ryan Emenaker, a political science professor at College of the Redwoods. And he has a couple of big-picture theories about what might be happening. The first has to do with organization: In California and a number of other states, local offices are nonpartisan, which has its advantages. (Traditional party ideologies aren’t always relevant to local issues, for example.) But without the community-
8 North Coast Journal • Thursday, Aug. 23, 2012 • northcoastjournal.com
building and recruiting efforts that come with the party structure, such states have had a harder time fielding candidates, Emenaker said. His other theory has to do with what drives us. Social scientists argue that people are motivated by wealth, power and status. “Obviously, in local elections you’re not getting much wealth or power, but status has usually been attached,” he said. It may be modest, but a certain amount of respect has historically been afforded to elected community leaders. In recent years, however, esteem for politicians has been eroding from the top down. Congress’ approval rating is at an all-time low; political scandals and corruption run rampant; “politician” is practically an insult. “This general feeling toward government, this malaise — I would have to assume at some point it would trickle down to people’s willingness to run [for office],” Emenaker said. Many authors and academics started worrying about America’s declining social capital during the 1990s, pointing to the steady erosion in voter turnout, membership in clubs and leagues, and the number of people willing to run for office. Smaller communities, like those in Humboldt County, have been more resistant — but not immune. Another factor is the social makeup of the cities themselves. For example, Trinidad (pop. 367) is largely made up of retirees, some of whom have already served terms on the city council. “The rest of the community is either busy or not interested,” said City Clerk Gabriel Adams. In his 10 years as clerk there’s been just one city council election — a real
nail-biter in 2004 when Chi-Wei Lin beat Jim Cuthbertson by a mere three votes, 126 to 123. (The other winner, Dean Heyenga, earned 140 votes.) The lack of competition is far more surprising in Arcata, a city famous for its outspoken progressive idealism. In the college community’s last six elections, there were at least two candidates — sometimes three — for every open council seat. Not this year, though. Three candidates tried and failed to qualify for inclusion on the ballot; they were unable to gather the required 20 valid signatures from Arcata voters. Mark Sailors, one of the rejected candidates, turned in 26 signatures 15 minutes before the deadline. Eleven of those signatures were disqualified — three came from people not registered to vote in Humboldt County; three more weren’t registered in Arcata; two were registered at different addresses than the ones they wrote down; and three other signatures looked dramatically different than the ones on file with the county, according to Arcata Deputy City Clerk Bridget Dory. Sailors initially took to his Facebook page alleging fraud, which he later downgraded to “shenanigans,” and in a phone conversation Monday evening he acknowledged that “people in Arcata sometimes have trouble following instructions.” Emenaker, the CR prof, said you have to question the seriousness of any candidate who fails at such a straightforward task. The names of all three incumbents — Michael Winkler (who’s also mayor), Shane Brinton (vice-mayor) and Susan Ornelas — will still appear on the ballot, along with two hot-button ballot initiatives: Measure H, which declares that corporations are not people, and Measure I, a tax initiative tar-
geting electricity-hogging indoor marijuana growers. Winkler offered a simple explanation for the lack of serious challengers: “By and large, people are happy with the job we’re doing,” he said last week. But former councilman and perennial council candidate Dave Meserve offered an alternate theory: Since the Green Party (his party) lost its council majority in 2006, he said, the city has been taken over by “downtown business interests,” and voters aren’t satisfied so much as complacent. Asked why he wasn’t running this time around, Meserve said he’s focusing on Measure I. Plus, he said, “I don’t like to lose.” The only contested city council races this year will be in Eureka and Fortuna. In
Eureka’s Second Ward, incumbent Linda Atkins will face a challenge from Joe Bonino, a little-known Humboldt State University payroll technician who will try to make the conservative grip on Eureka absolute. In Fortuna, where candidates are elected citywide instead of by wards, incumbent Douglas Strehl is expected to retain his council position while two new candidates vie for the seat being vacated by Kenneth Zanzi. In a phone interview last week, Zanzi said the economy could be a factor in the public’s reticence to run for office. “People are concerned about their jobs and livelihoods, and stepping into an elected position is going to take time from their
daily lives,” he said. A lot of time. Along with city council duties, Zanzi said he’s expected to serve on outside committees, such as the California League of Cities Legislative Committee, the Redwood Region Economic Development Commission and more. “When you start adding up all those other assignments, plus commitments to the city, it’s a pretty demanding job” — more than 40 hours’ worth per week, he said, with compensation of just $300 per month. “You have to have something in your gut that wants you to run for office,” Zanzi explained. He was passionate about updating the city’s general plan, and now that that’s been accomplished he’s decided not to seek a second term. He’s ready
to spend more time on his own interests, including a new Arcata business park that he and his wife are building. The two Fortuna residents hoping to replace Zanzi are Tami Gillam-Trent, a third-generation Fortunan who, at 51, owns Tangles hair salon and has served 10 years on the city’s planning commission , and Josh Brown, a 34-year-old father of three and assistant manager at Les Schwab Tire Center. Brown moved to Fortuna from Eugene, Ore., seven years ago and would like to see more retail opportunities in town, especially a Wal-Mart. Gillam-Trent wants Fortuna to keep growing slowly so it doesn’t lose its “small-town atmosphere.” Modest ambitions, perhaps, but they’re enough to keep democracy alive. ●

Reelection Made Easy
MAX THE OWL SNIFFER.
PHOTO COURTESY UW CENTER FOR CONSERVATION BIOLOGY
ANIMALS, OWLS, SCIENCE, SURVEYS / BY HEIDI WALTERS / AUG. 16, 11:17 A.M.
Scat Dogs Spot Owls No, they’re not canine masters of jazzy nonsense, crooning in the moonlight. They’re the University of Washington’s Center for Conservation Biology detection dogs Shrek and Max, who’ve been trained to sniff out northern spotted owl pellets (the undigested stuff owls hack up after a meal) at the bases of trees (and thusly find the owls). Hey, works better than humans hooting for them, explains Lawrence LeBlond, writing on redOrbit.com about the UW research, which recently was published in the science journal PLoS ONE. The research, conducted on the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, compared the use of vocalizations to find owls to the use of the specially trained dogs. Notes LeBlond, though land managers and biologists have been hooting for spotted owls since the 1980s, “detection dogs have a much better track record at finding the species” — especially now, as barred owls increasingly encroach upon spotted owl habitat and affect their behavior: “Experts are concerned that spotted owls may be timid about responding to vocalizations for instinctual fear that they are opening themselves up to attack if they do. … The experts said the detection dogs improved the probability of finding the owls by 30 percent over the traditional vocalization methods.” The UW’s dog-detectives website profiles many of its highly trained smarty-mutts. Max, it reveals, is a 7-year-old Australian cattle dog adopted from the Everett Animal Shelter in Washington in September 2007. Besides the Northern spotted owl, Max can sniff out wolverine, barred owl, grizzly bear, black bear, American pine marten, tiger and leopard. Holy cow. ●
Arcata residents Jolian Kangas, Valerie Rose-Campbell and Mark Sailors all attempted to run for city council, but according to the city clerk’s office (and as first reported by Kevin Hoover of The Arcata Eye), none of the three challengers managed to collect 20 valid signatures from Arcata voters and have thus failed to qualify for inclusion on the November ballot. The city’s signature requirement is less rigorous than even HSU’s student government threshold. Students there must gather 50 valid signatures to run for council positions with Associated Students. To run for AS president, candidates must submit 150 signatures. Arcata city council candidates had almost a month to gather signatures and had the option to file them a week early — before the Friday 5 p.m. deadline — to make sure their signatures checked out. If errors came up, candidates would have had the opportunity to fix them. All three incumbents filed early while none of the challengers did so, according to Dory. Of the 27 signatures Kangas supplied, only 11 were valid. Rose-Campbell had 16 of 30 signatures verified. And only 15 of Sailors 26 signatures checked out. The three non-incumbents can still run as write-in candidates but must fulfill the same 20-signature requirement. The paperwork for write-in candidates must be filed between Sept. 10 and Oct. 23. ● CRABS, ENVIRONMENT / BY HEIDI WALTERS / AUG. 14, 10:28 A.M.

It’s time to ponder the state’s new Dungeness crab trap limit program and — by Sept. 10 — submit your comments on the Department of Fish and Game’s initial study and proposed Negative Declaration. The program, the result of passage of Senate Bill 369 in 2011, goes into effect in the 2013-2014 crab season. It sets a cap of likely no more than 175,000 traps total allowed to be fished by permitted crab boats, and assigns permitholders to one of seven tiers of between 175 and 500 traps.

The Recyclable Journey From the end of your driveway to the edge of the world By Scottie Lee Meyers
t’s a Sunday afternoon in late July, and Janet Smith stands in her kitchen, surrounded by oak cabinets, shiny black appliances and flying-saucer looking chandeliers. When she opens the Macy’s box on her table, white packing peanuts spill out, no longer needed to cushion a small package of Estée Lauder bronzer. Smith has wondered about those peanuts — “Is this stuff recyclable?” Uncertain, she tosses them. She knows the box can be recycled, though, so she breaks it down and stuffs it in her recycling bin. The 32-gallon bin is almost full of plastic jugs of Minute Maid juice, some jars of margarita mix, laundry detergent bottles, magazines and newspapers. She’ll roll the bin out to the end of her driveway later tonight. Tomorrow afternoon, a Recology truck driver will park outside her house on Leslie Road in Eureka, hurl the recyclables into the belly of the truck and haul them away. But to where? All over the United States, recycling facilities process our boxes and jury summons letters, our beer and water bottles, our milk jugs and take-out con-
tainers. They turn what could have been trash into cash, selling it in a marketplace that people are skittish to talk about. One of the key stops en route to that resale market is the recycling center — and in Humboldt, that has been a complex and conflicted staging ground.
recycling has been a cauldron of drama for years. The Humboldt Waste Management Authority — a joint powers authority made up of representatives from the county and most of its cities — once took its recyclables to the Arcata Community Recycling Center. That $8 million dualstream processing plant in Samoa, and its smaller predecessors, had handled most of the county’s recyclables for decades. But after the center started charging a $65 a ton tipping fee in 2010, the waste authority looked into two options — buying the recycling center or finding a lower cost site once its contract expired. Amid accusations and threatened lawsuits, members of the Waste Management Agency found a new recycler. In 2011, Eureka, Ferndale, Rio Dell and Humboldt County signed a five-year contract with Solid Waste of Willits, which offered to

pay $8 a ton for the privilege of hauling the stuff off and sorting it. Arcata and Blue Lake stuck with the Arcata Community Recycling Center, calling it a vital community resource. But after losing its biggest customers and dealing with bond debt, the center struggled. It shut down early this year. (One of its smaller properties, a collection site on 10th Street in Arcata, may soon be sold to Eel River Disposal of Fortuna.) With the big Samoa recycling site closed and its 30 former employees out of work, the Waste Management Authority now has to figure out what comes next. The contract with Solid Waste of Willits can be canceled with six months’ notice. That contract is an “intermediate solution,” said HWMA interim president Patrick Owen, and the public and the authority’s board members will have to decide what comes next. It’s highly unlikely that could include buying the shutSTEVE FURTADO WEIGHS HIS TRAILER ON HUMBOLDT WASTE MANAGEMENT AUTHORITY’S 70 FOOT SCALE AFTER UNLOADING SEVERAL TONS OF CARDBOARD FROM WILDBERRIES GROCERY STORE.

tered Samoa plant, Owen said. A strategic planning public work session is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 23, at 5:30 p.m. at the Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center, 921 Waterfront Drive in Eureka. The meeting will include input from R3, a Sacramentobased consulting firm that’s helping the board develop a waste management plan. Owen said the HWMA hopes to make a

decision by June. Humboldt’s recycling angst comes as county residents have joined masses of Californians who are trying to wring a little more life from what once would have been tossed. According to state department CalRecycle, California led the nation in 2010 by diverting an estimated 65 percent of its trash away from landfills. That’s a huge flip flop from the 1960s, when a Los Angeles city ordinance requiring people to separate tin cans from the rest of their garbage caused such an uproar that Sam Yorty rode into the mayor’s office on a promise to reverse it. (LA didn’t return to recycling until 1993, according to its Department of City Planning website.)
It’s just after 2 p.m. on
Monday, and Leonard Wonnacott turns onto Leslie Road in Eureka. He’s been working for garbage companies for 30 years and is nearing retirement. Wonnacott stares at his side mirror through his tinted, transition lenses and snuggles Recology truck #13207 beside Janet Smith’s recycle bin. The $320,000 truck offers a steering wheel on both sides, and Wonnacott chooses to drive from the right. He firmly grabs the three toggle switches in the center console and begins to flick the black-knobbed levers back and forth. Compressed air hisses with each thrust. Shhhhhp, left toggle — the robotic arm extends toward the bin. Shhhhhp, center toggle — the jaws open. Shhhhhp, left toggle — the arm extends a bit more. Shhhhhp, middle toggle — the arm clasps
the bin. Shhhhhp, right toggle — the skeletal arm violently lifts the bin 30 feet in the air. The diesel engine quakes the truck. A small black and white monitor next to Wonnacott’s steering wheel displays what’s going on behind him. He sees that the bin has reached its pinnacle and tips it over. The plastic flaps slam open and the truck swallows Janet Smith’s Macy’s box and her other recyclables. Wonnacott shhhhhps the toggles, this time in reverse order, and the bin dives to the ground and sticks the landing like a gymnast. He’s already done this more than 500 times today. Wonnacott, a stout man in his 60s, has been snaking through Eureka’s neighborhoods along a route designed by a software program called RouteSmart, which displays city grids in colorful, pictorial maps. He started at 6:30 a.m. A city ordinance forbids Recology — which operates Eureka’s curbside recycling service — from collecting in residential areas before 6 a.m. Arcatans don’t get to hit the snooze button. The city hasn’t instituted any such restrictions, said Rick Fusi, owner of Arcata Garbage Co. He said some of his haulers start at 3 a.m. Maybe that’s why so many Arcatans cover their windows with thick layers of blankets? With his route now complete, Wonnacott drives toward the HWMA’s recycling facility, next to Harbor Lanes bowling alley in south Eureka. The station has drop-off areas for garbage, recycling, green waste and hazardous waste. The garbage goes to one of two landfills, either near Redding or Medford, Ore.; the green waste to Mad River Compost in Arcata; the hazardous materials mostly to the Bay Area; and the recyclables are separated out for their trip to Willits. This center is what people in the industry call a MRF (pronounced “murph”), materials recovery facility. Wonnacott arrives at the center and rolls onto the 70-foot scale. The station weighs trucks before and after they unload to calculate how much recyclables they drop off. HWMA charges commercial trucks a $120 tipping fee with each dump. The operator gives the signal and Wonnacott drives into the center’s warehouse. Inside is organized chaos. A two-storytall heap of garbage sits along the south wall, while a mound of recyclables about equal in size sits closest to the entrance on the west end. A black-and-yellow continued on pg. 15

Federal laws restrict trailer weight, and Richardson Grove restricts length, for now anyway. This is trailer #114 and it belongs to Solid Waste of Willits. HWMA brings in about 154 tons of recyclables a week and most of that is exported 142 miles south to Willits. Whatever Willits can’t handle, which isn’t much, C&S Waste Solutions in Ukiah gets. An even smaller portion of the recyclables at HWMA is sold on the commodities market to brokers or directly to manufacturers. When HWMA does trade on the market, it generally sells a few bales of mixed paper to International Paper (check the bottom of your brown-paper grocery bags, and chances are there’s an International Paper stamp there), which is then most likely sold to a pulp mill in Springfield, Ore. Solid Waste of Willits hauls five to seven trailers every week from Eureka. Before it landed the HWMA contract in 2011, the company was already bringing

woodchips to Scotia every week and the trucks were heading back to Willits empty. So now, after stopping in Scotia, the drivers travel a little farther north and pick up a trailer of recyclables, then head back to Willits. According to a quarterly report from Solid Waste of Willits, between April and June the company received 1,695 tons of recycled materials from HWMA and has paid the authority $85,180 for those materials and loading fees.

among the trash at the recycling center. The Budweiser bottles and the bottles of Robert Goodman wine all end up here and are valued about the same. “This place is a bank,” Morais says as he scanned the hills of trash and recyclables. But it’s not making HWMA rich. Most curbside recycling programs are not financially self-sustaining. The cost of collecting, transporting and sorting materials generally exceeds the money generated by selling the recyclables. That’s why customers are charged a monthly rate, which hovers around $23 dollars a month for standard service in Eureka and Arcata. But the money earned on the market helps keep rates down. Back in the warehouse, an excavator opens its jawed bucket, bites into a heap of recycled goods — there’s an awful lot of pizza boxes in there — and spews it into a 57-foot trailer, which takes 20 minutes to fill. The trailer is loaded with four bales of aluminum too, each weighing about a ton. They sit on the bottom like silvery ice cubes. About 15 to 17 tons of loose material — cardboard, glass and plastics — is thrown on top of the cubes.
What Humboldt Recycles
mixed glass 25%
mixed paper and cardboard 61%
Caterpillar 950 front-end loader zips around the facility like a mechanical bumblebee, flying from pile to pile, tidying up the throwaway loot. The operators wear neonorange vests and matching hard hats, clear protective glasses and radio headsets. They’re constantly in motion, but never in each other’s way. HWMA operations manager Helder Morais (the “H” is silent), a short and muscular man with dark eyes, commands the flow from his walkie-talkie. With a wad of chewing tobacco under his bottom lip, Morais tells the excavator driver, “All right, looks good, let her down.” Wonnacott pulls into the warehouse and rolls down his window, trading his regular wisecracks with Morais. Even jokes are recycled here. Wonnacott makes a three-point turn so that the rear of his truck faces the recyclables pile. He pushes on the gas at a formidable speed and slams on the breaks, ejecting the cardboard and mixed paper into the mound. He dumps the containers with a hydraulic lifter that tilts the load onto the floor. It’s his second dump today. This load turns out to be a little more than two tons (the trucks can hold about four). Four Recology trucks collect the county’s and Eureka’s recyclables every weekday; each truck will unload once or twice a day. Two to three Arcata Garbage trucks each drop off a load a day, too. Janet Smith’s Macy’s box isn’t visible amid the Pepsi bottles, Slim-Fast cans, lawn furniture, strawberry containers and Cheetos bags. There is no hierarchy

hang on the wall and a framed picture of his sons’ soccer team sits on his desk. He monitors the activity in the warehouse from his flat-screen TV on the wall. It shows the loading dock, the main floor and the single-stream recycling processor — a beast of a machine, almost entirely blue except for the yellow trim on railings, steps and ladders. It stretches along the south end of the building and continues halfway along the east wall. It was installed less than four years ago. When it’s turned on, employees wear earplugs. Birds used to flock to the machine until the company hammered in nails, points up, onto the surfaces. A truck arrives and reverses into the warehouse, dropping 15 tons of recyclables from Humboldt onto the main floor. It joins the mountain of other materials in a pile about twice as long as the heap at HWMA. The materials are about to be shoved and jostled through single-stream recycling, a process that has largely edged out the dual-stream recycling that the Arcata Community Recycling Center had been so proud of. In dual stream, paper takes a different route from the remaining plastic, metals and glass. That requires more sorting at home and more expansive trucks. Once on the main floor, a front loader pushes a bathtub-sized pile of recyclables onto the conveyor belt. The belt steadily carries the materials up several stories until it plateaus. At the top, nine employees wait to sort the material; it’s a marriage of man and machine. Up here, the belt stretches flat for about 60 feet. The first line of men — yes, they’re all men in these jobs right now, although women have been on the line in the past — stand across from each other on opposite sides of the belt. Their hands rummage through the

materials, darting, slamming, grabbing. Workers go through two pairs of gloves a week. They pluck out milk jugs and laundry hampers, otherwise known as natural plastic number two. The men toss the jugs down the chute and into a collection bay. Five feet down the line, another pair of men do the same thing, except they’re removing laundry detergent bottles, oil and antifreeze containers, the colored number two plastics. The last pair of men pull out tin. It’s a lot of soup and instant coffee cans. Like priests, therapists or film developers, recycle sorters get an intimate
look into our personal lives. They’re archeologists of the living. And what do they deduce from what we’re throwing away? “We see a lot of sex toys. A lot!” says Gamez, a short man who suddenly gains a few inches with his bright-yellow hard hat on. Dead animals, wedding rings and passports have all passed through the line too. Once a bag of bundled $20s came through. “But no bodies,” Gamez jokes, his smile exposing his bottom-bracket braces. After the materials pass the men, the belt dips down. Glass drops into a container directly below. The leftover materials then climb a motorized screen. The syncopated rattling makes them jump
up like popcorn kernels. The screen allows paper to move on while unwanted waste materials fall through the cracks. The surviving mixed paper and other residual materials make a U-turn, riding along the black-rubber conveyor belt a few dozen feet before they are met by the critiquing eye of another sorter. He lets magazines, Bibles and letters pass through and removes anything that’s not paper, which is mostly plastic bags at this point. The paper rides the belt a few feet farther before it falls down a chute. The machine operates like an occult hand, cradling the good while swiping away the bad. The plastics and tin that the men threw into collection bays will be emptied and baled. Residual materials that fell through at various spots take another ride along the belt for a second sort. Now the remaining materials are ready to be baled. According to a Solid Waste of Willits report, only 4 percent of the materials brought to Willits can’t be recycled. That’s pretty good by industry standards; Owen said some centers can’t recycle up to 30 percent of what comes in. Now that it’s all sorted, it’s time for packaging. Different recyclables, each at its own time, travel on a baler conveyer into a hopper, where they’re compressed by a giant ram and bundled by a wire machine that wraps metal at 50 feet per second. It expels the bundles in cubes about the size of a small refrigerator, and depending on the material, weighing anywhere from a half to a full ton. Sometimes the baler gets jammed when too much paper gets in. To fix the jam, a brave employee must descend into the depths of the baler and stare down that ram, which is designed to crush cars. There’s a whole protocol. The machine continued on next page

must be turned off, and the keys that would restart it must be in the pocket of the employee entering the baler. No one else can be around the machine and every lock mechanism must be initiated. And you thought sticking your hand in the garbage disposal was scary. Bryan Smith has been working at Solid Waste of Willits since he was 17. Eight years later, he’s now the operations manager. He admits that he used to mindlessly throw stuff in the garbage. But that’s changed now, and he helps his wife with the recyclables at home. Smith points to a stack of baled aluminum cubes near the loading dock. “They turn out so pretty looking.” Later this week, shipping containers will pick up a lot of these pretty looking bales Smith has put together. Some of those containers will have Chinese lettering on them.
The Institute of Scrap
Recycling Industries, a trade association with more than 1,600 member companies, reports that the U.S. processed more than 134 million metric tons of recycled materials in 2011, valued at about $100 billion. That’s pretty close to Apple Inc.’s $114 billion total revenue last year. The materials were sold to manufactures in the U.S. and more than 160 other countries. China has the largest appetite for our recycled materials, especially our paper and cardboard. The country doesn’t have the infrastructure to harvest its own recycled waste yet, but it’s quickly building recycling centers to do so, according to Jerry Powell, editor at Recycling Resource. The U.S. exported $8.5 billion worth of recyclables to China in 2011. Canada is second on the list, receiving $3 billion of our recycled exports, and South Korea third with $1.7 billion. (Roughly $60 billion of the materials stayed

within U.S. borders.) At this point, the quest to track exactly where Janet Smith’s Macy’s box and the rest of Humboldt’s recyclables end up becomes murky. We can guess with some probability where it goes, but we can’t be certain. Here’s the problem: Brokers buy these materials and sell them to, well, anyone, anywhere. They might buy a container of mixed paper from Solid Waste of Willits for $100 per ton and flip it to the highest Chinese buyer for $110 per ton. Several brokers bragged about how many buyers they had in their Rolodexes. But none of them offered names. They wouldn’t even offer a ballpark number. “I’m not going there. Don’t even ask,” said Melvin Weiss, an independent broker from the wealthy Bay Area suburb of Danville, who’s been in the business for decades. His jovial tone quickly turned skeptical after he was asked which companies he brokered with. “The minute something like that gets out, my buyers could be flipped.” There are 40 other guys waiting in line for every brokered deal, he said. Weiss is probably right. I called a Los Angeles broker I thought traded with recycling centers across the North Coast. Turns out he didn’t, but he demanded I tell him the names of the centers so that he could solicit them for business. When deals are done, it’s the Jerry Maguire principle of capitalism: Show me the money. Show me the most money. “He who pays the most gets the material,” said Brian Sollum, operational manager of another North Coast garbage and recycling company, Humboldt Sanitation. According to Sollum, Humboldt Sanitation collects about a fourth of the county’s recycled goods, in McKinleyville, Trinidad and east toward Hoopa. It requires customers to do most of the separating
of their recyclables, and has onsite staff that divvies up the rest. Since the ACRC closed, Sollum said Humboldt Sanitation has seen more than a 40 percent increase in volume. The business deals Sollum secures with brokers are never long-term contracts. “I’ve never had a contract in 27 years,” he said. “If you’re smart, you play one broker off the other: ‘Pony up or I’ll ship to Joe.’” It’s the same story for all of the North Coast’s recycling centers. Contracts are for big companies capable of offering a ton of tonnage, not the smaller operations common in Humboldt. Like many industries, the recycled commodities market ebbs and flows with the global economy’s influence. Earlier this month, Solid Waste of Willits sold mixed paper at $105 a ton. The following week the price fell to $75. Prices are so low for aluminum right now, a material that is generally a money maker for recycling companies, that Harry Hardin is holding onto at least 100 tons of the stuff. He’ll sell it when the price is right. Hardin owns Eel River Disposal, a material resource facility in Fortuna with a single-stream recycling center. The company is close to wrapping up a deal to purchase the Arcata Community Recycling Center’s drop off site on 10th Street in Arcata (not to be confused with the ACRC’s dual-stream recycling center in Samoa). Amid the secrecy and swiftly made deals, here’s what we do know about some of our recycled materials: Aluminum stays domestic. Humboldt, your cans go to the Bay Area, most likely to Anheuser-Busch’s recycling center. The company’s plant manager said the aluminum bales are then sent to the Midwest or the East Coast to be melted and made into sturdy sheets. It’s then recycled into
a Budweiser beer can. Again. Your glass, that’s staying right here in California too. Glass is a proverbial loser, essentially subsidized by the state through California redemption value (or CRV) deposits, said Sollum. Humboldt, for the most part, your glass goes to Strategic Materials in San Leandro. According to the company’s website, its “specialty ground glass products are used by customers as beads for reflective high striping, frictionators for bullets and matches, grit for den-
tal products” and as ingredients in ceramic floor tiles, bricks and pots. Your mixed paper is mostly being shipped offshore. Powell said there’s an 80 percent chance of it ending up overseas, mostly in China, South Korea and Taiwan. And old corrugated containers, which are your basic cardboard, have a 50 percent chance of being exported. There are still some paper mills along the West Coast that are keeping paper domestic. Several centers in Humboldt said they’re taking
their paper to Springfield, Ore., where it’s made into a pulpy oatmeal material used for new cardboard boxes. A broker for International Paper Inc. said that the life of cardboard, from when it’s kicked to curb to when it becomes a new box again, can be about six weeks. Your plastics, there’s about a 50 percent chance that’s being shipped to China, said Powell. Although Eel River Disposal said a buyer in Sacramento takes most of its plastics, that could just be a middle-
man. Sorry, Humboldt, this one is too tough to call. And those packaging peanuts Janet Smith had wondered about. Turns out they are recyclable. In fact, according to Macy’s website, those peanuts are 100 percent biodegradable. You can dissolve them in water and pour that into your garden, yard or toilet. But they can also be dropped off at Post Haste Mail Center in Arcata. Reuse is the quickest route to recycling. l

he expression “gone to seed” usually has a negative connotation, meaning disheveled, declining or otherwise post-prime. When vegetables or herbs go to seed, or “bolt,” they quit being what you planted and become gangly towers looming over the garden. In this respect they’re more like teenagers than elders, but anthropomorphisms aside, the plant’s formerly edible parts are now shriveled, bitter and woody. While this can understandably look like a bad end for your endive patch, crops that are going or have gone to seed can still play an important role in the garden. A garden plant that has run its course and produced seeds is, naturally, a source of seed. Depending on the plant’s propensity to crossbreed, the seeds it produces might be true to the parent, or a mix of parent and some similar plant. (For this reason it’s inadvisable to replant seeds from garden squash, because squash hy-
brids can be foul tasting or poisonous.) Or the seed might be sterile and not sprout at all. Seed saving is another discussion, full of complexity and art, and it’s more commitment than I care to take on personally. [See editor’s note.] Instead, when the greens bolt I simply let the seeds fall where they may. If any of them happen to sprout next month, or next spring, great — any time a yummy plant wants to grow up between my garlic or tomato plants is fine with me. I’d much rather have edible crops volunteering themselves than many of the weeds I know. The first plants to bolt are generally the leafy cold-weather plants like spinach, lettuce, escarole and cilantro, and they make their moves when spring turns to summer. The newly aged old farts crowd the garden with their blossomed stalks, providing cooler, moist shade that allows the later blooming plants to maintain their tender youth a little longer. Newly sprouted
plants are thus sheltered as well. Perhaps most importantly, the flowers attract pollinators. The nation’s bee population is currently plagued by mites, viruses and neonicotinoid-based pesticides, all of which have been implicated in die-offs, and may play roles in colony collapse disorder. This dire situation is alleviated, if only slightly, by a pesticide-free garden gone to seed, which can provide a safe, nourishing haven for imperiled bees. My bolted garden is practically a gridlock of bee traffic, which helps the garden become a place of interaction between interdependent segments of the greater ecosystem. Watching bees patronize the newly opened blossoms is hardly a buzzkill. A garden gone to seed, with young plants growing in the shade of old-growth annuals, is a diverse ecosystem, but diversity has its drawbacks. Bees aren’t the only critters that prefer dense polyculture to boring monoculture. Disease and pest problems may increase. As your plants fill out and crowd together, they won’t be able to grow as large as they would if they had more room. If your singular goal is to pull as many pounds of food from the garden as possible, then letting plants bolt might not be the game for you. Few gardens, however, are about production alone; they feed more than just your belly. A diverse garden, with different types and ages of plants, is interesting. A garden gone feral can blur the line between growing food and gathering it. A trip to the garden starts to feel like entering the forest with your basket to see what you can find. When you push the bolted radicchio aside to find a young head of hidden lettuce, it feels like a gift. I take care throughout the season to create this kind of luck, by casting handfuls of seeds every which way, in both spring and summer. Mostly I toss seeds for greens, herbs and carrots, all of which can be planted throughout the summer for a fall crop, and all of which do well in partial shade. When I happen upon an unexpected parsley patch or grove of carrots, the fact that I had scattered their seeds there,
or allowed their parents to bolt, doesn’t diminish the thrill of discovery. But as you’d expect, hurling seeds randomly at the garden won’t result in orderly rows. Those who like their garden linear and neat should avoid this tactic. There’s a fine line between letting your garden go to seed and simply abandoning it. I call the former “managed chaos.” You may need to pull some plants that are crowding or shading certain other plants. Bolted plants might block a sprinkler or attract unwanted pests or draw birds that shit on your parsley as they eat cilantro seeds. You may choose to let only a select few bolted plants stick around, like islands in an otherwise orderly garden. Managed chaos probably doesn’t fit most people’s idea of what a well cared for garden should look like. And to be honest, while it looks good to me, I often find myself slightly embarrassed when I show my garden to others, and feel compelled to blurt out why I actually intentionally chose to let the garden go to seed. In the end, gardens, like pets, often come to reflect their owners. Some value appearance above all else. Others care more for an interesting personality. Some, like me, use the garden to explore the greater ecosystem, as a source of adventure and surprise. Gardening, especially bolted vegetable and herb gardening, may not pay for itself in the cold economic calculus of input versus return. But as entertainment it’s a lot cheaper, and more enlightening, than a trip to Disneyland.

k.d. lang, plus HSU dance parties, Brothers Comatose, Hank 3, GoGoSnapRadio and a bunch of Portlanders By Bob Doran
k.d. lang and Siss Boom Bang
t’s official: College is back in session. Are all of you new students ready to party? Better get ready, because the HSU campus music machine has a full slate of shows for you (and the “community”) as the new CenterArts season gets rolling with a couple of shows next week, and Associated Students Presents throws no fewer than five dance parties Friday and Saturday. The biggest name here is k.d. lang, the androgynous alt. country star who stole the show at this summer’s Kate Wolf Festival. Lang plays the Van Duzer on Wednesday, Aug. 29. (Athens, Ga.-based alt. folk/country songwriter Lera Lynn opens.) When I showed up at Kate Wolf on a July Sunday, pretty much everyone I spoke with raved about her Saturday night set, usually mentioning Vegas and/or Elvis in the process; “Patsy Cline meets Wayne Newton” was how one friend put it. The few who did not like her show missed her old cow punk material and complained about the Vegasy aspects, that her moves and her voice seemed too studied, even slick. Lang has been working with a new band, Siss Boom Bang, led by guitarist Joe Pisapia, who she met when she played Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, home of the Grand Ol’ Opry. She was ready for a new direction. “I love going where I’m not supposed to go,” she says in her publicity material. “I love feeling like I’m starting at square zero again. I thrive on it.” Opening the CenterArts season Tuesday night is alt. country singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile, who has been cutting one hit record after another with twin brothers Phil and Tim Hanseroth since 2004. Her latest, Bear Creek, came out earlier this summer. Opening the show: Canadian folkies The Barr Brothers with Andrew and Brad Barr of The Slip. AS Presents launches its season Friday, with a pair of shows in the University Center: First up the Missing Link All-Vinyl Revue (as in Matt ‘n’ Adam, Mantease and DJ Red) in the South Lounge with very special guests from Numero Group. As Missing Link Records owner
Adam explained it, ASP booker Michael Moore let them choose anyone they wanted to join them playing records. The dudes from the Chicago-based Numero reissue label were at the top of the list, heroes to soul music cratediggers. These are vinyl hunters with a mission, according to a press release, “to dig deep into the recesses of our record collections with the goal of finding the dustiest gems begging to be released from their exile on geek street. No longer would $500 singles sit in a temperaturecontrolled room dying for a chance to be played. No more would the artists, writers and entrepreneurs who made these records happen go unknown and unappreciated.” Did I mention there are door prizes? Expect retro soul heaven. Starting a little later that night in the Kate Buchanan Room, ASP goes EDM with San Francisco-based DJ Ana Sia, a Humboldt favorite, plus Frite Nite recording artists B. Bravo and Epcot. Saturday the ASP action starts at 6 p.m. with a free show on the Quad featuring S.F. neo-psychedelic soul/heavy funk band Monophonics, who play music that sounds like something discovered by a crate-digger. Opening the show is another vinyl spinning record store owner, DJ Zephyr, aka Bandon Wayne, from The Works. Then it’s a repeat of Friday’s action with variations: The Missing Link DJ crew returns to the South Lounge, this time with DJs from Secret Stash, a Minneapolis reissue label specializing in classic international soul and psyche. In the KBR it’s Portland EDM artist Doug Appling, aka Emancipator, with his trippy, organic take on electronica. He’s joined by Ninja Tune’s Yppah and another Portlander, Anomie Belle, a former classical violinist gone EDM. She’ll do her own set, then perform with Yppah. Friday at Humboldt’s EDM central, Nocturnum, WERK productions presents dubstep/ drum ‘n’ bass artist SICKorWELL, plus Itchie Fingaz, who won last year’s Journal readers’ poll as “Best Club DJ.” (The 2012 poll is under
22 North Coast Journal • Thursday, Aug. 23, 2012 • northcoastjournal.com
way; look for the ballot elsewhere in this issue). Opening the show is @uDioGa$m, whose moniker reminds me of a well-crafted computer password. Austin’s T Bird and The Breaks play “chunk music” Thursday at Humboldt Brews with a new local funk/rock/etc. combo River Valley Mud. By the Breaks’ definition, “chunk” is “a form of 21st century American music consisting of equal parts funk, hip-hop and rock ‘n’ roll characterized by its rough sonic quality and energetic, visceral performance. Commonly served hot with a side of girls and brass.” While the band is from Texas, there’s a touch of New Orleans involved. The Brothers Comatose are back in town for a Saturday gig at Humboldt Brews. The rollicking post-old-time band first came together in the living room of the Morrison household with brothers Ben and Alex Morrison strumming guitar and banjo respectively, and friends joining the party, among them standup bassist Gio Benedetti, fiddler Philip Brezina and mandolinist Ryan Avellone. A bona fide band jelled with the Bros landing high profile gigs at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, High Sierra, Strawberry, and most recently, Outside Lands, which I suppose means they can add opening for Neil Young, Stevie Wonder and Metallica to their resume. Impressive. Are you ready for some hell-bent country? Sunday at Dean Creek Resort it’s “That Damn Show” featuring the rip-roarin’ grandson of country legend Hank Williams, Hank 3. The allday show also includes Angel’s Cut, Greg Ginn and The Royal We, The Dirt Floor Band, Matt Borden, Wolf Hollow Revival, local alt. country faves Gunsafe, and Butch the mechanical bull (for those with cowboy fantasies). The Portland onslaught continues: Friday at the Lil’ Red Lion it’s a PDX two-fer with Dramady, a two-piece with Amanda Wiles on bass, clarinet and saxophone, and Zac Stanley on drums and keyboards (simultaneously) playing what’s described as “highly rhythmic danceable pop with groove laden dub bass and
melodic horns,” on tour with “folktastic” Portlanders The Betwixties. The Bandage provides local support. At the Alibi Saturday, ViSes, who tell us via email, “ViSes is a post-hardcore/dance-punk band from Portland that blends heavy guitar riffs and fierce female vocals with powerful drums and groovy bass lines to create an extremely volatile Molotov cocktail capable of inciting a riot just as easily as inciting a dance party.” Sounds dangerous. Local rockers Indianola open. More punk Sunday at the Lil’ Red Lion with L.A.’s Dr. Velvet and The Social Drinkers, who have a split 7-inch out with tour mate Brian Berwind, aka Proof & Proving, a punky guitar-strummer guy from Philly. (They used Kickstarter to raise $3K to press the record and go on tour.) Humboldt comedy rock terrorists Splinter Cell and a new outfit called SFB provide local support. Drummer Alan Evans of Soulive split off to form his own piano/organ funk/jazz trio, appropriately known as the Alan Evans Trio. The combo jams at Jambalaya Saturday night after an opening set by that new local funk big band, Motherlode. Persimmons Garden Gallery in Redway has a rare Monday show on Aug. 27, with The Band Of Heathens, a top-flight Americana outfit from Austin fronted by a pair of seasoned songwriters, Ed Jurdi and Gordy Quist. The sound is Texas-style rock with shades of country and blues, good stuff. Anyone else remember Sarah-Jane Moody, lead singer for the all-girl Southwestern alt. country band The Dolly Ranchers? She’s now half of an alt. pop duo called GoGoSnapRadio with Jeremy Bleich, formerly of a band called birth. They play quirky, experimental music on junkyard instruments (a trash can lid, for example) and the occasional guitar and synth. A West Coast tour brings them to Synapsis (same building at Ink Annex/Placebo) for a show on Wednesday, Aug. 29, with local guitarist/songwriter Olin Howabauten opening. l

Geezers with guns: Sylvester Stallone, age 66, and Chuck Norris, 72, in The Expendables 2.
Seniors relive their blow-em-up years, plus an earnest indie and a bland spookfest By John J. Bennett firstname.lastname@example.org
THE EXPENDABLES 2. This latest installment in Stallone’s geezers-with-guns franchise is unabashedly overblown, irresponsible macho horseshit — and I kind of love it. I may be the bull’s-eye of the target audience for these movies. I cut my teeth on the crass, ultraviolent Hollywood action movies of the ’80s and ’90s, so I don’t think I can be blamed for feeling transported by the lowbrow glory of the The Expendables 2. Nostalgia aside, these movies are pitiably bad. The dialogue is riddled with painfully obvious clichés, the action scenes aren’t particularly imaginative and the acting is … well. Yet somehow, in embracing what makes them so awful, in turning a middle finger up to the critics, both Expendables movies have been satisfyingly loud and silly. For the uninitiated, the Expendables are a crack team of mostly late-middleaged mercenaries. They are, apparently, the best of the baddest. (They wantonly emblazon themselves, their motorcycles, aircraft and weapons with skulls and stuff, just so we get the message.) They’re kill-
ers, each with a different specialty, and they all believe in doing the right thing, particularly when it requires explosions and large-scale death-dealing. It’s adolescent, GI Joe fantasy nonsense. If you can’t get with that, there isn’t anything I or anyone else could say to bring you around. Nor can I blame you; enamored as I am of movie combat, I still have to silence parts of my psyche to enjoy movies like this — like the parts that celebrate film-art as personal expression, or question the ethics of entertainment based on violence for violence’s sake. The Expendables 2 is not a good movie by any real critical standard. It’s not anywhere close to a great action movie (Die Hard) or even a pure guilty pleasure (Crank). But it is, for the right audience, enjoyable from start to finish. Stallone did well to hand off directing duty to Simon West (Con Air). His style isn’t particularly innovative, but this sequel is sure-footed and consistently paced where its precursor was talky and uneven. R. 102m. RUBY SPARKS.

continued from previous page up Little Miss Sunshine (2006) with this, another sweetly sad meditation on the inner lives of lonely, sensitive people. I like it, but I can easily see how critics could fault its quirky earnestness and indie composure. Paul Dano plays Calvin Weir-Fields, a wunderkind struggling to produce a second novel some 10 years after the startling success of his debut. He lives with his dog in a modern, antiseptic LA house, all but a shut-in. His therapist gives him a half-baked writing assignment that somehow jolts him out of writer’s block. He pours himself into the creation of an ideal woman, writing day and night with hardly a break. Then, miraculously, that ideal woman is awake and corporeal and inside his house. This creates some consternation. The script, by Zoe Kazan, who also plays the title role, takes this tidy little premise and explores first the honeymoon period, then the restless, prickly settling-in. When Ruby turns out to be a real person, beyond the easy attributes Calvin was so desperate for, he’s forced to again wrestle with his loneliness and fear of strangers. Ruby Sparks is a self-assured, ultimately satisfying little movie. Matthew Libatique’s cinematography is spare and thoughtful without overwhelming the subject. The pacing and dialogue have a unique, natural rhythm that suits the story. Dano and Kazan deliver smart, vulnerable performances in the leads and are supported by a terrific cast, including Annette Bening, Antonio Banderas and Elliot Gould. My only real complaint is that Kazan’s script occasionally gives her scenes that feel like something she wrote for an acting workshop — as if she felt she had to demonstrate her own versatility. Let that minor indulgence slide and the movie is emotionally authentic and very watchable. R. 104m.

PARANORMAN. Laika Entertainment, the animation studio behind Paranorman, made its name with 2009’s Coraline. And with good reason: That earlier effort is charming, atmospheric and inventive. This follow-up shares Coraline’s beautiful stopmotion animation and star-studded casting. But its tale of a misunderstood boy who must save his town from ghosts and zombies lacks Coraline’s imagination and story development. Granted, it’s hard to beat a Neil Gaiman story as the basis for an animated feature. He’s a dark fantasy juggernaut, and even a minor work like Coraline stands head and shoulders above the bulk of the derivative, predictable pap the major studios churn out. Paranorman lives, sadly, somewhere deep in that bulk. The movie isn’t without its merits. It boasts fluid, top-notch animation, gorgeous, minutely detailed set design and some winning performances. The first half of the movie actually makes pretty compelling viewing. But as the climax draws closer it becomes all too clear that the script doesn’t have any particularly interesting angles. About two-thirds of the way in, I was just waiting for the thing to end. I may have overburdened Paranorman with my expectations. Months ago, I was utterly captivated by the official trailer. It wordlessly evoked an atmosphere of humor and dread, thanks to some brilliant editing and the strains of Donovan’s “Season of the Witch.” Like a trailer should, it left me wanting more. I anxiously awaited the opportunity to explore the funny, creepy world Laika conjured up. That world is indeed compelling, but the story unfolding within it is completely conventional and frustratingly lackluster. PG. 93m. —John J. Bennett
PREMIUM RUSH. Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as a Manhattan bike messenger who gets caught up in the dirty dealings of a crooked cop (the great Michael Shannon). Judging by the trailer, this movie has the goofy knob turned up to 10, with video-game editing, death-defying stunts and comically corny dialog. Might be awful, or it might be a total blast. PG13. 90m. On Friday the Arcata Theatre Lounge will screen The Dark Knight (2008), Christopher Nolan’s second and, for my money, best Batman movie, with a mesmerizing performance by the late Heath Ledger as the Joker. PG13. 152m. Saturday at 9 p.m. brings Ben Stiller’s hilarious sendup of Hollywood Vietnam movies (among other deserving targets), Tropic Thunder (2008). R. 107m. 9 p.m. Sci-Fi Pint and Pizza Night comes lumbering in next Wednesday with the 1987 domestic Bigfoot comedy
Harry and the Hendersons, which will be followed by Horror Express, a Spanish horror film from 1972 in which snooty British academics on a train encounter a monstrous alien.
THE BOURNE LEGACY. Jeremy Renner replaces Matt Damon in the action franchise based on Robert Ludlum’s international thriller novels. PG13. 125m. THE CAMPAIGN. Doofus duo Will Ferrell and Zach Galafianakis star in this broad, lazy skewering of American politics. R. 85m. 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. 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. R. 100m. HOPE SPRINGS. Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones star as an aging couple trying to rekindle the fire in their 30-yearold marriage. PG13. 100m. ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT. More prehistoric hijinks from Manny the mammoth, Diego the saber-tooth and Sid, the lisping sloth. PG. 94m. THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN. A childless couple writes down their hopes for a young’un, then buries them in the backyard. Hark, a dirty kid emerges. 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. TOTAL RECALL. Lackluster and pointless remake of the 1990 Paul Verhoeven film. PG13. 121m. —Ryan Burns l
cd Diamond Rugs By Diamond Rugs Partisan Records
Maybe Deer Tick’s leader, John McCauley, doesn’t like to be alone. In ’94, McCauley had initially intended to write songs and perform as a solo artist, but Deer Tick has evolved into a bona fide band. Diamond Rugs, McCauley’s new side project, was intended as another solo project but also quickly morphed into another band. Collaborating with Deer Tick colleague Robbie Crowell, drummer Bryan Dufresne of Six Finger Satellite, Black Lips’ Ian Saint Pé, Hardy Morris of Dead Confederate and Los Lobos’ reed player Steve Berlin, McCauley has managed to create a solid collection of songs that percolate with just enough drunken swagger. Diamond Rugs reeks of the alcohol-fueled rock ‘n’ roll that propelled The Faces in their heyday. And though the record has its whiffs of hillbilly folk and country, the reckless spirit of Paul Westerberg and his Minneapolis-based band The Replacements is unmistakable. It makes sense that veteran arranger Berlin assisted in pushing Diamond Rugs into something beyond simply throwing material against a metaphorical wall and seeing if it sticks. For “Call Girl Blues” and “Tell Me Why,” Berlin’s arrangements give the songs punch and structure. The rewards in The Rugs’ songs are simple. Tales abound of girlfriends leaving (“Hightail”) or guys getting kicked out (“Out on My Own”). In “Gimme A Beer,” McCauley shouts over a stinging pedal steel riff, “I want the kind of credit where I sign and forget it. I want the kind of hand that I could look at and admire — not a goofy ball of flesh, … but oh, who cares, gimme a beer.” The excellent rendition of the little known garage-pop nugget “I Took Note,” by Mandarin Dynasty provides one of the record’s highlights. The album’s closer, “Christmas in a Chinese Restaurant,” is not only the perfect response to The Pogues’ “Fairytale in New York,” but it also reveals McCauley at his best and most vulnerable. With a lone piano accompaniment, McCauley’s scratchy voice begs, “How’s the turkey, how’s the ham? I can’t finish my moo goo gai pan. But that’s not all; they cut me off from alcohol. But anyway, you go on, deck the halls.” It’s simultaneously sad and pathetic, while wrapped in humor. Diamond Rugs, a name coined by McCauley after the numerous rugs he slept on while on endless tours since 2004, is an ironically apt nom de band. Rising from the ashes, lint and beer stains, there are true diamonds coming up like roses from this particular rug. — Mark Shikuma

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 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 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 Monk’s Tale By Barry Evans
our centuries after being burned at the stake on an otherwise chilly February morning in 1600, the freethinking Dominican monk Giordano Bruno is still creating controversy. Actually, it’s formation of the lunar crater named for him that’s causing all the debate, although I’ll be discussing Bruno’s prescient cosmological ideas in another column. According to the English monk Fratello Gervase of Canterbury (1141-1210), an extraordinary event took place on the early evening of June 25, 1178 (our calendar), the likes of which has never been seen since: “A marvelous phenomenon witnessed by some five or more men who were sitting there facing the [2-day-old thin crescent] moon. Suddenly the upper horn split in two. From the midpoint of this division, a flaming torch sprang up, spewing out … fire, hot coals and sparks … the body of the moon which was below writhed, as if it were in anxiety, and to put it in the words of those who reported it to me and saw it with their own eyes, the moon throbbed like a wounded snake.” What did they see? According to a proposal made in 1976 by geologist Jack Hartung, it was the impact from a huge (twomiles across, perhaps) meteor or asteroid, resulting in the formation of the Giordano Bruno lunar crater. Molten dust from the impact would have obscured part of the crescent moon, that is, the “horn” would have been “split.” From Gervase’s description, the impact occurred close to the right edge of the moon, halfway between the moon’s equator and north pole. Crater Bruno, on the far side just out of sight from us, at latitude 36 degrees north, fits nicely. What’s particularly compelling about Hartung’s proposal is Bruno’s extreme youth: It’s probably the youngest
crater of its size on the moon. We know this because the rays spreading out from the crater, formed of light-colored ejecta material, are pristine, while those from older craters have been degraded by the constant rain of micro-meteorites on the lunar surface. And at 14 miles in diameter, Bruno is certainly consistent with the eruption of a vast cloud of ejecta visible from Earth. And that’s the problem, according to lunar expert Paul Withers of the University of Arizona. An impact of that magnitude would have catapulted some 10 million tons of debris into Earth’s atmosphere, causing, at the very least, a weeklong meteor storm, spectacular enough to be recorded by someone, somewhere. Yet none of the astronomical records from the time — European, Chinese, Arabic, Japanese and Korean — mention what Withers claims would have been “the best fireworks show in history.” So there’s the conundrum: If Bruno was caused by a huge impact in 1178, why didn’t anyone record the subsequent earthly meteor shower? The answer will have to wait for future astronauts to ship samples from the crater back for analysis, so its precise age can be calculated. If those samples show that Bruno was formed about 800 years ago, we can be pretty confident that Gervase recorded the birth of a lunar crater, thus solving the mystery of a moon that “writhed” and “throbbed” on that long-ago midsummer night. Barry Evans (barryevans9@yahoo. com) love affair with the moon is platonic, pure and passionate. He will be giving a talk in the “local authors” series at the main Eureka Library on Saturday, Aug. 25 at 1 p.m. For reservations call 269-1991 or email email@example.com.
