Editor: Hopefully if Mitt Romney is elected president, he’ll send our boys out into our communities and the world to ask elders,

women and children, “Is there anything we can do right now to help you, anything at all?” (“The Mormon Moment,” Sept. 6.) They could plant neighborhood gardens, offer to babysit or chop wood and carry water. Sound too boring? Not ego satisfying?

continued from previous page Well, there’s always the standard “Christian soldier, white knight, we’re right, conquerors of evil” alternative that justifies war and the infiltration of corporate dogooding by brainwashing and manipulating innocent sinners into believing they aren’t good enough for one reason or another, so buy this product. Christians are so hung-up with the rules that they forget that Jesus sat around all day with the worst of humanity and just relaxed, laughed and ate figs and nuts. Nobody was judged, ridiculed or made to feel there was something wrong with them. In this acceptance of life as it is, light, joy and peace could manifest, which naturally dispelled anger, resistance, judgment and the sense of separation from our fellow humans. Life itself (God) is so easy and wonderful and abundant. How the human ego converts childlike simplicity into complex chaos should give us pause. To pause means to stop what we’re doing. Jesus didn’t “do” much because he was in peace just “being.” He cultivated the presence of God within himself by sitting, breathing, enjoying nature, eating simply, walking up a hill or down into a valley. Man creates his own hell, not by drinking beer or having a child out of wedlock or smoking pot, but by the judgment of life itself, manifest in all its myriad possibilities, as being wrong or sinful, damn darn it!

Editor’s note: The letter writer is right to urge carefulness in how you sign a petition – but wrong about why. Carolyn Crnich, Humboldt County’s registrar of voters, says your signature won’t be thrown out just for a missing, or added, middle initial. If you write a different address from the one on the voter registration roll, however, you’ve blown it – that’s the most common reason for rejecting a name on a petition, Crnich says.

Write a letter! Please try to make it no more than 300 words and include your full name, place of residence and phone number (we won’t print your number). Send it to letters@ northcoastjournal.com ●

Media and fans grapple with new rules as Ferndale High football enters the season on probation By Heidi Walters

n Saturday, the center of the universe shifted to the Eel River Valley for an afternoon, a two-tone swirl of color and noise — one half red and white and shouting Go, Wildcats!, the other half blue, silver and white and shouting Go, Huskies! Bands erupted. Cheerleaders chanted and flipped. The fans roared. And in the middle of this shimmering sphere, the warriors squared off, red and blue commingling in bursts, pulling apart, and then grappling again and running, running. There was even, after a time, sunshine — perfect for the 47th annual Milk Can Game between valley brethren rivals, Ferndale High School and Fortuna High School. Around about half time, when the game was 7-7, Ferndale High Superintendent and Principal Jack Lakin, dressed in jeans and a red-and-white plaid shirt, stood with his wife on a small slope behind the endzone near the Wildcats Boosters’ goodies booth. Everything was going perfectly, he said, “just perfect.” In some ways, more than who won the coveted milk can trophy was at stake in this, the first home game of the season — the fans were under scrutiny,

8 North Coast Journal • Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012 • northcoastjournal.com

and so was Lakin. Last year, Ferndale fans were accused of yelling racial taunts at opposing team members at at least three separate games — at the end of the previous season, again in September, and again in December. That all led to a complaint filed with the North Coast Section of the California Interscholastic Federation by Stephen Walters, the grandfather of a McClymonds High player involved in the second incident. Walters’ complaint said that although Superintendent Lakin was “cordial and conciliatory” with him after a fan at a Sept. 3 game in Ferndale allegedly yelled at his grandson, “Get up, n** and take your n** ass back to Oakland,” Walters was concerned, after hearing of the third incident, that “school officials cannot be counted on to put a stop to this behavior.” The NCS investigated and placed the Ferndale High football program on probation for this season, telling staff to come up with a game management plan to ensure better fan behavior. A couple of weeks ago, Lakin revealed that plan. There would be more monitors, including some undercover independent ones. And only

players, student staff and coaches could be on the sidelines — unlike at past home games, where anyone could wander into the sidelines, and many did. He didn’t mention the media specifically, but soon news spread that he’d instituted a “media ban.” Caroline Titus, publisher of the Ferndale Enterprise, tweeted the news: “All media banned from Ferndale High School sidelines @ home football games. FHS under probation by NCS for racial taunting.” Furthermore, the sideline area — the distance between the edge of the field and a rope the school strung up around it — had grown. Fans and, yes, media, would have to be in the more confined space behind the rope. In an editorial in the Enterprise the following week, Titus wrote that Lakin had “arbitrarily and capriciously kicked the media from the sidelines at all home Ferndale High football games.” In an interview with John Matthews on KSLG (94.1 FM), Lakin objected to the term “media ban” and said change was difficult. Later Lakin said much the same to the Journal. “It borders on foolishness, the idea that this has been identified as a media ban,” he said. “We wanted to change this culture of people feeling comfortable walking into the area where they shouldn’t be.” He said the official rules call for a sixfoot space between the edge of the field and the restraining line — his distance is a bit wider. It’s actually up to 18 feet wide in some spots, said Titus, who measured it last week. Big deal, said Lakin. “I’d find it embarrassing to say I can’t shoot from 12 feet instead of five feet,” he said. Before last Saturday’s game, Tag Wotherspoon told the Journal it’s unprofessional to not let media onto the sidelines. “It’s unheard of, and I’ve been covering high school and college sports for over 30 years.” Wotherspoon broadcasts the local games on Lost Coast Communications’ The Point (KWPT) and also co-hosts a local sports talk show called North Coast Game Night on Bi-Coastal Media’s ESPN at 1340 AM. Ray Aspuria, sports editor for the Times-Standard, said he was wary of the new sideline rules until he learned that they didn’t apply to the opposing team’s sidelines — media could go onto those. Manny Machado, sports director for News Channel 3, said his crew won’t be able to get eye-level anymore to shoot the Ferndale home games. But he wasn’t concerned. “We’d love to be on the field, but as long as we’re in the press box, I’m OK with it,” he said. Machado and Aspuria noted, however,


that Ferndale is the only local school to ban media from the home team sidelines. They could see the school’s side of things, but why not just issue media credentials? Matthews, Titus, Wotherspoon and others have wondered the same. Lakin doesn’t budge. Wotherspoon and Titus suggest perhaps Lakin is targeting the media, then. They both covered the racial slur allegations last year extensively, and they critiqued Lakin’s administration’s handling of the allegations — too defensively, they said, not quickly enough, and not always openly. Wotherspoon said some fans threatened him last year, saying he would “never, ever broadcast a Ferndale game again.” Lakin said people keep asking him why he’s “doing this to the media when they didn’t do anything.”  ”First of all, we’re not doing anything to the media,” he said. “And our students and our staff didn’t do anything either. But because the people who did this are faceless, the community as a whole and the school has had to bear the consequences.” Titus, however, accuses that the new sideline rules were decided improperly behind closed doors. (Lakin says the issue was discussed in open session. She says a recording of the open-session meeting reveals it was not.) “In my 28 to 30 years of being a reporter, I have never dealt with a public official like Mr. Lakin and the way he chooses to handle the media,” Titus said. Back to Saturday’s game. Yes, the sun was out. But the Wildcats seemed subdued now. A player, Kaden Zanone, had been hurt; maybe that was it. Or… “I think the fans are quieter because they feel they got their hands slapped by the powers that be,” said fan Gary Renner. Mayor Jeff Farley, standing near the end zone, agreed people seemed watchful. When Times-Standard photographer Shaun Walker hurried into the end zone sidelines to shoot a play, Farley said, a bunch of fans shouted out at him, “Get behind the rope! You’ll get us in trouble!” Walker and another photographer mostly shot from Fortuna’s sidelines. After the game, Walker said he thought the new rules didn’t apply to the end zone. He added that not being able to shoot from Ferndale’s sidelines wasn’t a big deal — he usually shoots from the other side anyway so he’s not aiming into the afternoon sun. By the last quarter, Zanone was back in the game, Ferndale was zooming ahead and its fans, once again, were supercharged. At the end, they swarmed onto the field to gather around Ferndale’s victorious team players as they hoisted the coveted milk can. l northcoastjournal.com • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012

Blog Jammin’ GOVERNMENT / BY RYAN BURNS / SEPT. 11, 11:49 A.M.

C U, GPU? The Humboldt Sentinel reports on a stunning ideological coup attempt at Monday’s special meeting of the Humboldt County Supervisors, wherein the conservative majority moved to invalidate the nearly complete General Plan Update and potentially start from scratch. According to the report, Fifth District Supervisor Ryan Sundberg complained that the document, which has moved through a lengthy public input and planning commission process, is “just too big and unwieldy to digest.” Brand-new First District Supervisor Rex Bohn agreed, saying he didn’t have enough time to familiarize himself with the update, according to the report. After the meeting, Third District Supervisor Mark Lovelace sounded an exasperated note on his Facebook page: At our meeting today, Supervisors Sundberg and Bohn asked staff to bring back some “alternatives” to the General Plan Update we have before us, such as just ‘tweaking’ the old 1984 plan. The draft before us was guided by 11 Supervisors and 14 different Planning Commissioners, with input from over a thousand community members at over 200 meetings over 12 years. There is no magic shortcut. The matter will be considered at what’s sure to be a heated meeting next Monday, Sept. 17. ● AVIATION / BY SCOTTIE LEE MEYERS / SEPT. 10, 4:28 P.M.

It’s SuperFederalGrant! It was welcome news when the ArcataEureka Airport received a $750,000 federal grant last month to help bring a new eastbound route to the area. The airport has seen turbulent times in the past couple of years — airlines have left, ticket prices have gone up, and there’ve been airport management complications. With most the money now in place, the airport can sit in the, ahem, pilot’s seat by offering an airline a revenue guarantee and dictating fee waivers for landing, fuel and terminal rent. With the help of local businesses and industry consultants, the county has put together an airline recruitment package. The 95-page package notes Humboldt’s top employers, new infrastructure

projects and passenger demand analysis statistics. It also boasts, “Voted one of Sunset Magazine’s ‘Best Places to Live.’” There’s even a pretty picture of that famous National Geographic cover shot of one of our towering redwoods. But the package sits on the runway awaiting liftoff until partially matching funds come through. Don Ehnebuske, executive director for the Redwood Region Economic Development Commission, said the federal grant is contingent on his agency’s ability to raise an additional $250,000 within three years. The LOWRIDER CRUZ’N THROUGH OLD TOWN. PHOTO BY HEIDI WALTERS.

Ehnebuske has been able to land with most, he said.) $10,000 from the City of Eureka, $5,000 from Cypress Grove Chevre, $1,500 from Republic Parking and other smaller contributions. But it’s not adding up to $250,000. Ehnebuske hopes that the Headwaters Fund board will accept non-cash in-kinds to meet the match — such as fee waivers, for instance, for advertising the routes. The seven-member board will meet Sept. 18 to vote on the issue. If the board agrees to accept in-kinds, the county can begin shopping the package to airlines within the next couple of months — which is timely, because airlines typically add new routes in the fall. The Arcata-Eureka airport is looking at four eastbound hubs — Dallas, Denver, Phoenix and Salt Lake City. The grant can’t be used for a direct flight to Los Angeles International Airport, said ACV program coordinator Emily Jacobs; the county got a similar grant in 2004 to establish LAXdirect flights, which disqualifies the destination this time around. “That being said, sometimes that can be worked around,” she said. LAX could be a stop to one of the required eastbound hubs. No matter which company comes in, United Airlines will still be here. Tom Mattson, director of the county’s public works department, said the county just renewed a lease with United for another year. (Note: Those of you frustrated with the delays and cancellations in and out of ACV shouldn’t necessarily blame United, said Ehnebuske. The problem is conges-

Cruisin’ Like Barney Well, this is embarrassing: Apparently I’ve been sitting on a humongous colorscheme-change scoop. Over at the Lost Coast Outpost there’s a contest to guess — or, rather, suggest — the Sheriff’s new colors for his cruisers, which will be revealed all nice and proper tomorrow in a press conference, according to a news release posted on LoCO and sitting in my inbox. Press conference! Will there be angrily shouted questions? Disorder? Dismay? Outrage? Depends on if you have a fear of traditional paint jobs. They’re not gonna be green and white anymore, at least not the new Ford Crown Victorias that Sheriff Mike Downey told me about in July. The Crown Vic has been discontinued as a police cruiser, and some departments are shedding their surplus — even brand new ones, like the seven Downey just got from the Anaheim Police Department, apparently for a steal. And those babies are … black … and … white! So, yeah, just like the CHP’s — and others’. “Los Angeles County, San Diego, Sacramento County — they all run black and

whites,” said Downey. Fortuna’s going that route, too, fading out the good ol’ red-and-whites. Why? WHY?? “It’ll cut down on graphics costs,” Downey said. The black-and-white scheme’s cheaper to repair than that finicky green decal. As for the current green-and-whites in the stable, each will be phased out as it hits the 120,000-mile mark on the odomoter that signals it’s time to be put to pasture. ● CRUISING, CULTURE / BY HEIDI WALTERS / SEPT. 8, 12:47 P.M.

I coulda been Cruz’n My dad took cars for trade sometimes when a client couldn’t pay a bill. That’s how, when I was a kid, we ended up at different times with the ‘65 Mustang, the ‘67 Caddy and the sleek, square Mercedes whose age I can’t remember. All were old, all had second homes at a one-man auto shop farther out in the sticks. And all, I realize now, could be stars in vintage-auto fandangoes like the one that rumbled into Eureka yesterday evening. Old Town is a-stink with their curvy, angled, souped-up glory — one-time homely grocery-getters turned comely chick-/dude-getters (we presume). Oh, had I only hung on to one of the two beastly Travelalls that found harbor in our gravel drive along with the rest of our rotating, creaky car stock. I’d revv that squat hippo, let it release a massive car fart … then at the next stop probably have to jump out, lift the hood and tighten the battery terminals to get it running again. Classic. ● BUSINESS / BY RYAN BURNS / SEPT. 4, 4:03 P.M.

Curtain Drawn Temporarily After a rough couple of weeks, Redwood Curtain Brewing Company is hoping that brighter days lay ahead as it prepares to transition to a new tasting room. That transition will require closing the current room, effective immediately, according to a statement posted today on the company’s website and its Facebook page. “This is not a cessation of brewing operations,” the statement emphatically states. Reached by phone, owner Drake Mollberg said the new tasting room will open “hopefully in the next month or so.” He said it will be located in unit No. 4 of the Bayview Industrial Center, 550 South G St. in Arcata — two doors down from the current location. ●

as you’d think in Humboldt and, in fact, our assignment would have been much more difficult just a few years ago when bars in Orick, Shelter Cove and Carlotta were still serving. We didn’t have to make those treks in 2012. Thanks, economy. And we dodged a trip out to Petrolia by unintentionally scheduling our crawl a week before the opening of the Yellow Rose. Sorry, Lost Coast. Did I make all the excuses required? K, good. Now let’s drink.

DAY ONE MINGO’S SPORTS BAR Rio Dell, Thursday, 7 p.m. A bottle’s throw from the north end of the Eagle Prairie Bridge, which connects the once timber-supported towns of Rio Dell and Scotia, you’ll

find Mingo’s Sports Bar. Inside were previews of the upcoming staples of our sudsy safari: You’ve got yer pool table, you’ve got yer jukebox, you’ve got plenty of NASCAR, NFL and corporate beer memorabilia littering every square inch of wall space. Unique to Mingo’s was the sign where the curve had been smudged out of the “P” so it read “Any Fucker Vodka drink $4.50.” In our crawl pre-planning, concerns had been raised that the vibrancy of establishments visited on Thursday might not be fairly represented. But even though it was barely evening, Mingo’s was full of all the yelled profanity and general rowdiness you’d want. The boisterous star of the show, a woman with pulled back red hair sporting a gray West Coast Choppers sweatshirt, was making a point to engage everyone who entered the bar.


KATIE, ANDY, RAM AT THE PALACE

“Dee Bass,” she introduced herself before yelling a clarification, “like the fish!“ “So what are you guys doin’ with that camera?” asked Connie, the bartender in the shirt that read “Do not start with me, you will not win.” “We’re doing an art project,” I replied, then explained our Journal sojourn. Dee wasn’t through with us. “I’ve got my name tattooed on my arm! Wanna see?” She quickly peeled off her sweatshirt to reveal a monocolor widemouth bass tattoo on her forearm. Nice.

After a long philosophical discussion with the bartender Danny on what does and does not constitute a sport — “Anything that a person who could possibly get a 4.0 grade point average can do: not a sport,” according to Danny — conversation turned to possible tension in the THE PALACE room between some Ferndale, Thursday, of the Palace regulars 9 p.m. and one of our crew With daylight to members, KSLG spare, the crawl crew DJ John Matthews. journeyed across Apparently, feelings Fernbridge and down were still a bit raw afJOHN DID NOT DRIVE HOME FROM Ferndale’s Main ter John had brought THE IVANHOE.

SCOTIA INN Scotia, Friday, 5:30 p.m. Our more inclusive itinerary almost doubled the number of Day Two establishments we had to visit. Bring it. Down an abridged flight of stairs, the Scotia Inn Pub is intentionally less lavish than the rest of the Inn. Its low light and low ceilings make it feel like a cozy converted basement. Historic photos of the once bustling timber company town line the walls. The crew ordered drinks and then took up pens and started filling out bar review forms we’d created, hoping that at the

And so, on Day One, our crawl would no longer be based on science but on a religion we constructed as we went. This new course meant we now had to walk across the street to the Victorian Inn. It felt like a bar, for sure. Everyone in? It was closed. Ugh. Things were falling

Inside the Ivanhoe, a generally older but vibrant room was singing along to the house band’s version of “Goodnight Irene.” Lack of legitimate dance space did not hinder older couples wedged between the dinner tables and the band from swaying adorably together. The place retains the same historic-butcozy spirit of much of Ferndale. The walls are cluttered with old photos of notable Ferndaleans of yesteryear. And, admittedly, there’s a physical, fully stocked bar. We gathered

The crawl crew could not even get through Day One without the purity of the mission being sullied? I had a nice, clean list of twelve bars with a working title in mind of “12 Bar Blues” — get it?! But DJ and fellow crawler Larry Trask, Ferndale sympathizer that he is, insisted on a short jaunt down the block to Ferndale’s Hotel Ivanhoe. I had specifically tried to stay out of establishments whose main focus was not getting you drunk. I wanted “bar” bars, without exactly knowing what that meant.

end of our voyage we’d have some quantifiable way to rank the watering holes. We’d tried to make it fun, from obvious categories like “Amenities” and “Drink Quality,” to the more probing “Sketchiness” and “Patron Hotness.” After being somewhat lax the first day, I really wanted to get observations, praises and gripes on paper. Down at the end of the bar, a sign on the wall read “Wisdom Corner?” Conveniently, the man sitting on the actual bar corner, Roby Agnew, claimed to be Wisdom Corner?’s creator, while speaking in riddles of its significance. (It’s really just where he and the boys hang out). “You notice the question mark?,” Agnew asked. “We’re not really sure how wise it is to sit down here because we’re usually all fucked up by the time we leave.” While we were talking, one of the waitresses placed a thick, juicy steak in front of Agnew. Maybe it was a wise place to sit after all.

eyes adjusted from the SoHum sun to the dark interior, we took in the Trading Post’s charm. Formerly an antique store, it had no shortage of mismatched artifacts — stone Buddhas, ancient cameras, a burl bear. Stacks upon stacks of alcohol cases seeped out from one corner into the rest of the bar. While a few presumed patrons basked in the sun out front, the bar was empty except for us and Kim, the young, talkative, raven-haired bartender who was loving her still fairly new Humboldt experience. “I came here for three months. That was a year ago,” Kim said of her migration from New Orleans to the middle of nowhere to work on a farm in Briceland. She’d tended bar previously and eventually got sucked into the Trading Post world. She let us take drinks outside, and after we explained our mission, she let us lie on the bar for an impromptu photo shoot. Kim just requested we

remove our shoes. “This place could be a destination,” Larry said. Reluctantly, we said goodbye to Kim, breathalyzed and pressed on. RIVERWOOD INN Phillipsville, Friday, 8:30 p.m. After miles of nothing except Avenue of the Giants’ asphalt and humongous foliage, the Riverwood Inn is an impressive sight. A favorite biker stop, the wellmaintained roadhouse has always seemed to overachieve, with a steady stream of out-of-town, accomplished bands. And the Mexican food is decent. With rooms available, the mythology I’d heard always included late night rockin’, drinkin’ and safely crashin’. Unfortunately, none of that was happening tonight. The crawl crew entered the main room and moseyed up to the


bar where an older bartender served us mostly margaritas. She wasn’t much for conversation, and we ended up transfixed by the televised London Olympics opening ceremonies. I mean, the place looks great. With the exception of the Benbow Inn, there probably wasn’t a classier joint on our list. The floors are ludicrously shiny and many of the walls have beautiful redwood paneling. Some are lined with framed, signed concert posters and pictures of the bands that have played here. We shoulda waited for a band. This felt like being at Disneyland when none of the rides were running. BENBOW INN Benbow, Friday, 9:30 p.m. Sticking out like a sore but finely manicured thumb on our predominantly dive bar weekend was the only Tudor-style establishment on our revised list: the historic Benbow Inn. Just how historic, we were about to find out. Making our way through the hotel lobby’s summertime traveler bustle, we found the Benbow Inn’s inviting piano bar. A few of us fanned out to take in the architecture. Lots of leather to sit on. We got all misty eyed watching fellow crew members and lovebirds Andy Powell and Alanna Goldsmith wander around the expansive, romantically lit terrace. Did I mention it was Alanna’s birthday? It was. Back in the bar, I asked one of the waitresses if she could give me some trivia

John was outraged. “If there was a swastika on the side of the station, I’d be the first person out there to shave that shit off.” “But the swastika meant something else before the Nazis took it over,” Alanna said. John wasn’t having it. Consensus on the Benbow Inn swastika could not be reached.

about the building. She was pretty sure it had been built by German woodworkers in the 1920s and, oh by the way, there’s a Nazi symbol up there. “Where?” I asked. “Right … there,” she said, pointing right above my head. It was dark, but I shined a light on my camera up to a nook in a pillar adjacent to the bar. Sure enough, centered in the woodwork was a deliberate, raised, unmistakable swastika. If you didn’t know it was there, there was little to no chance you’d notice it. Judging by a slight difference in the shading of the wood, we theorized that it

BRANDING IRON Garberville, Friday, 10:30 p.m. “Wow! G-ville be hoppin’!” Separate pods of done-up women and collared-shirt, flat-billed-hatwearing gentlemen roamed the street. Some were coming from a burlesque benefit show at the Garberville Theater, which had provided an extra shot of life to the scene. The pounding beats of Peaches’ “Fuck the Pain Away” took residency in our ears as we made our way into the Branding Iron, where we were instantly confronted with the bar’s main attraction. Stripper pole. Right in the center of the room. I climbed to the top. Crew member Katie Hennessy spun around a few times giggling, never leaving her feet. We were soon put to shame by “Rhonda,” a young, blonde regular in sandals and plaid shorts who, among other things, performed a mid-air splits and descended head down from the pole using only her legs to hold on. We were impressed. The rest of the bar seemed to fit the rural bar mode: taxidermied animal noggin, corporate beer signs, pool tables, soulless digital jukebox with exactly the same music selection in every location. (Remember when you had no choice but to grow to love the Garth Brooks live album? Simpler times.) An electronic boxing machine in the corner took our dollars but wasn’t giving coherent readings. We still don’t know if Larry or Alanna punches harder. continued on next page

THE BLUE ROOM Garberville, 11:30 p.m. Oh joy! — there was another bar in Garberville I hadn’t allotted time for: The Blue Room. Great. (I studied that liquor license list from the state later, and realized I missed The Blue Room because its name wasn’t listed — just its address.) The Blue Room’s “blue” is produced by some blue plastic covered rope lights strung above the bar, bathing the room in the desired hue. The most notable feature was its liquor case, where you can buy an off sale bottle of Jose Cuervo to take home if you want to keep goin’ after they kick you out at 2 a.m. I guess that’s kinda cool. Andy and his lady friend decided to part ways one bar early, and no amount of protesting could sway him. Andy blew: “.00”. Alanna blew: “.15”. We made our way to our final destination.

BRASS RAIL INN Redway, Friday, 12:45 a.m. Our ranks depleted, the remaining crawlers braved Redwood Drive and turned into the jam-packed Brass Rail Inn parking lot, where an unmistakable sound from inside filled the night air. “Oh, it’s karaoke night,” Larry said. “Perfect.” We made our way inside toward the most out-of-key rendition ever of “Killing Me Softly.” The bar’s main room was full of frenetic drunken belligerence. People running into each other. People yelling at each other. Aggressive karaoke being sung. The exaggerated swaying of the gentleman with the devil horns strapped to his head led to a collision as I made my way to the bar — my fault, really. The wall-towall carpet and grandma’s house wallpaper made it feel like a fraternity living room. At the bar a woman named “Molly” approached Larry with a plastic jar and told him he hadn’t paid to get in. “For karaoke night?” Larry asked. “C’mon, just three dollars!” she insisted. “Do you even work here?” he asked. The price dropped slightly after it was revealed that she did not. Larry declined to pay. While he was entertaining, the guy who screamed while sitting on the

ball-propelling art, take note future crawlers: no grub. Simon Legree’s Hawkins Bar, Saturday, 9 p.m. There was one geographic exception on our rural Humboldt bar crawl. About 10 miles east of Willow Creek on Highway 299, just over the Trinity County line in the small community of Hawkins Bar, is Simon Legree’s. In Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin, “Simon Legree” is the slave owner who buys, torments and eventually kills Tom, the anti-slavery novel’s black protagonist. Not a good guy. The fact that someone would name a business out in the hills after this character had always astonished me, and our crawl crew had agreed upfront to this rule bending. With a name like that, we were surely guaranteed some jaw-dropping display of overt racism, right? Oh boy! Inside the uninspiring brown boxy building, the natural wood walls and vaulted ceilings were actually pretty invit-

ing. A quick scan of the room revealed no declarations of Aryan superiority. Two white gentlemen sat at the bar where a black woman in her early 30s was running the show. “Oh, that’s funny,” Larry said smiling and shaking his head as he sat. We asked Victoria, the bartender, how the bar came to have such a dubious moniker. “You’d have to ask the previous owner,” she said. “Maybe he was an asshole. Who knows?” The Forks Willow Creek, Saturday, 9:45 p.m. Earlier that evening, we’d gotten a tip from Steven Streufert of Bigfoot Books. Seems he was a consultant of sorts for a Bigfoot-themed film, and if we timed it right, we could scratch The Forks off

our list while hanging with the film crew. And oh, by the way, the film’s director will be there: Bobcat Goldthwait. Are you kidding? For those of you who aren’t instantly like “whoa”d by that name, Goldthwait was a pretty big deal in the ‘80s as a stand-up comedian. And he was the loud, hyperactive gang leader-later-to-become-officer Zed McGlunk in a string of Police Academy movies. Sure, sure. In recent years, though, he’s reinvented himself as a dark comedic screenwriter/film director of such films as World’s Greatest Dad and God Bless America. Oh, and some Bigfoot movie divinely scheduled to collide with our bar crawl. We pulled up to The Forks to find an unmistakable short, stout man in golf hat and thick-rimmed glasses, standing with others outside. “That’s him!” fanboy Will Startare said excitedly. Before we even had a chance to play it cool, Bobcat must have sensed that we were there with purpose and asked us what we were up to. “We’re doing an art project too,” I said, explaining that we were documenting all the local rural bars for the Journal. “Oh, can we have our picture tak en?” he asked. Yeah, that would be cool. “We’re gonna have a guy from our crew do a song about Bigfoot,” Bobcat went on. “Perhaps we can use your bar crawl people?” Are you kidding? The crawl crew, along with other bar patrons, gleefully signed release forms and gathered in a corner of the bar — oh right, the bar. Uh, The Forks looked a lot like the other ones. A cast member with a ukulele played a song he’d written that day about the Pattison-Gimlin film shot in Orleans in 1966. Apparently, we were a bit too reverent in take one.

Alanna tours the makeshift DJ booth at Ocean Grove.

“It’s OK to smile and stuff!” Bobcat directed us. “Just think about how you really would react to this. He’s also playing a ukulele.” Take two was sufficient, filming wrapped for the night and drinking and photo taking commenced. Clam Beach Inn Clam Beach, Saturday, 11:45 p.m. Are we done yet? The combination of the long trip out to the coast and the 15 bars that stretched behind us colored our impression of the Clam Beach Inn. While “The Digger” as it is known, was easily one of the livelier bars of the weekend, we huddled apathetically at the bar. We were done meeting people. But the camera around my neck again gave us away. One giant, aggressive bearded guy in a Slayer shirt kept demanding I take his picture until I showed him one he was happy with. Another gentleman invited me to photograph him as he spun a quarter on the bar and attempted to stop it standing on its edge with his index finger. Everyone in the crew seemed to agree that The Digger was nicer than the last time they were there, though in each case they could not cite when said “last time” was. The bar did offer another chance at shuffleboard — the first since the Palace. Yet another Rendezvous digital jukebox offered the exact same music as every other similar machine. Jukeboxes, it seems, are lacking soul these days. Ocean Grove Trinidad, Saturday, 1 a.m. Sure, the Grove has had more aesthetically pleasing eras. These days it’s aging, with rusting furniture, paint-challenged floors and stained ceilings. But recently

the Grove has overachieved by hosting DJ’d dance nights in the alcove next to the bar. Despite ceilings low enough to scrape your knuckles if you’re not cautious with your fist pumps, the dance nights are pretty popular. On this night, young members of the Humboldt Free Radio Alliance were undeterred by an empty room. Flanked by an aloof, beer-sipping posse and using a tarp covered pool table shoved in the corner to hold his gear, DJ Shell Shock enthusiastically bobbed his head as he filled the room with old skool hip-hop for no one. During a break he approached us. “You’re from the Journal?” he said. “So you’re here to cover me? OK! Take all the pictures you want!” After logging a solid half hour of Grove-age, Andy signaled the end of the journey. “I think we’re gonna take off,” he said, motioning for the breathalyzer. He passed. So did I, driver of our second car. Our tail lights glowed in night drizzle. Dragon slayed. Time for bed. The next day we would all have to rise from the crawl position and stand again as real humans. l

Blooming Cocktails

The Northern California Craft Beer Guide Ken Weaver Cameron & Company

amystewart@northcoastjournal.com Aviation Photo by Amy Stewart

Anderson Valley’s Poleeko Pale Ale. Eel River’s Triple Exultation. North Coast’s Old Stock Ale. Redwood Curtain’s IPA. Six Rivers’ Paradise Moon Coffee Porter. That’s a nice evening out. It’s also beer writer Ken Weaver’s top five craft beers to try on the North Coast. Not your top five? For a mildly amusing drinking game, suggest your own list next time you’re out with friends. Weaver offers “5 to Try” lists for eight regions in Northern California in his book The Northern California Craft Beer Guide. In all, that’s 40 to try. Weaver and photographer Anneliese Schmidt (spouse and beer buddy) spent six months sampling Northern California’s craft beertopias. They sipped in Santa Cruz, tapped Tahoe and knocked back a few in San Francisco, Oakland, Chico and here. The result’s a 292-page travel guide with brewery directions, hours and tasting notes for around 300 breweries, brewpubs, craft beer-centric bars, restaurants and bottle shops. Quirky breakouts feature festival listings, bottle cap art and a “Trouble Brewing” comic that mocks beer snobs. Profiles of endemic NoCal beers include Anderson Valley’s Boont Amber with its “restrained caramel sweetness, vibrant red fruit character and enough zesty hop bitterness to steer things.” Weaver’s tone? Knowledgeable but unpretentious. When picking faves, Weaver attempts diplomacy. He offers even-handed insights and notes award-winning beers. At Lost Coast in Eureka, Weaver praises a limitedrelease “keg-conditioned IPA dry-hopped with Calypso hops, which was fantastic.” He lauds the “impressive lineup” at Mad River, from Steelhead to Jamaica Red, and appreciates the Kona in Six River’s Paradise Moon Coffee Porter. Eel River’s Triple Exultation? “Delicious layers of caramel, red fruits, and a touch of warming alcohol.” He raves about Redwood Curtain, whose tasting room is now temporarily closed. Weaver signed copies there Aug. 25 after a visit to Hops in Humboldt. In the book, he calls Redwood Curtain’s Belgian styles “some of the best you’ll find in Northern California” and the IPA a “kickass divergence from West Coast IPAs in general.” For Weaver and Schmidt, drinking craft beer is work, if also a dream gig. Weaver, once a particle physicist, now brew-blogs, judges beer competitions and contributes to All About Beer magazine. The couple owns two Breathalyzers. Beer people are good people, Weaver asserts. Educated artisans and craft consumers form an enviable community, a movement that counters the homogeneity of the BMC — “Bud-Miller-Coors. The big guys, the behemoth brands, the insipid mass-market lagers.” The book costs $21.95. Its paperback cover appears sturdy enough to handle a spilled chewy porter or two. At the Breathalyzer Superstore, devices start around $50. If you’re going to try Weaver’s tasty 40, invest. — Deidre Pike Deidre Pike recently moved to Trinidad from Honolulu, where craft brewing is in its infancy. She feels happily at home in Hopboldt Humboldt.

ast month I looked at flowers that can be used to decorate cocktails — borage and pansies and the like — but this month, we’ll consider a few flowers that actually flavor drinks. Some of these have been used for centuries to make not just liqueurs, but boozy medicinal potions as well. Elderflower. Cordials and sodas flavored with elderflowers are a very British thing, but it took an American distiller to recognize their potential. Rob Cooper, a third-generation distiller, tasted homemade elderflower syrup in a London bar and decided to create a liqueur from the flowers. The result is St-Germain, made in France’s Bordeaux region from fresh elderflowers that arrive at the distillery the day they are picked. The liqueur has a floral, fruity flavor somewhere between honey and pears; it has become internationally popular and makes a lovely addition to sparkling wine or just about any drink made with gin. The species of elderflower in question is Sambucus nigra, a native hedgerow plant in Europe and the United Kingdom. A variety called Black Lace has, as the name implies, gorgeous burgundy-black foliage. The pink sprays of flowers are mildly fragrant, and if you have two of them, the flowers will give way to burgundy fruit in late summer. I grow it alongside a regular green, white-flowered variety, often sold as “common elderberry,” on the theory that the fruit will be better if at least one of its parents is the old, wild strain rather than a newer specimen bred for good looks. Plant them in full or part sun (Black Lace develops more color in full sun; it goes a little green in shade), give them regular water, and if you want smaller, bushier plants, cut the taller branches down in midsummer after they flower. Elderflower cordial is made by drop-

ping fresh, clean blossoms into simple syrup immediately after picking and washing them. (Simple syrup is equal parts sugar and water, brought to a boil and allowed to cool. Two or three cups would be about right.) Most people add sliced lemons and oranges, and if you want a little more preservative, try an ounce of citric acid, available at health food stores. A splash of vodka also serves as a perfectly respectable preservative. Cover and wait 24 hours, then strain into a clean jar. Store it in the fridge and use it up within a month. The fruit, by the way, is a bit tart to eat raw, but people do make it into jams and wines. Just keep in mind that all elderflower fruit contains some amount of cyanide. S. nigra is lower in cyanide than our native American species, and ripe fruit across all Sambucus species is lower in cyanide than unripe fruit. Cooked fruit is safer than uncooked. So — be careful out there. Jasmine. Jasmine liqueur recipes date back to at least the mid-1700s, but surely someone thought to pour alcohol over jasmine flowers long before that. The species to get is Jasminum officinale, sometimes called poet’s jasmine. You could also try the tropical Jasminum sambac, called pikake in Hawaii, if you thought you could protect it from temperatures below 60 degrees year-round. In fact, both of these jasmines require a mild winter, so plan on bringing them indoors if you get heavy frost or snow. The procedure for extracting jasmine flavor from the flowers is similar to that of elderflowers — soak them in water or simple syrup, not alcohol, because many of the flavor molecules in these flowers are water-soluble, not alcohol-soluble. Use alcohol sparingly as a preservative after you’ve extracted the flavor and filtered it. Lavender.The best way to get a little lavender flavor in a cocktail is to make a simple syrup with it.  Be sure to start with an English lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) like Hidcote or Munstead — they’re the ones most often used in cooking or perfumes. The next best choice would be L. x intermedia like Grosso or Fred Boutin. Both require sun, fast-draining soil, minimal water and winter temperatures above zero Fahrenheit to survive. Make up a pot of simple syrup and

just toss in fresh or dried lavender buds while it cooks. Strain it, cool it and mix it. I’d use it in anything involving gin, vodka or sparkling wine. A fresh lavender bud also makes a fabulous Martini garnish; the essential oil spreads out on the surface of the gin and magical things happen. Rose. If you have a highly fragrant rose — Mister Lincoln or some such thing — the petals should go straight into a mason jar and have vodka or Everclear poured over them. Some people add a vanilla bean, but I’m not a fan of that combination. Cover it well and let it sit for a few days — but taste it daily. The minute it tastes wonderful, strain it. These fresh floral infusions get nasty if they’re left too long. Mix it with simple syrup to taste, and you’ve got a homemade rose liqueur. Sweet violet. Viola odorata, the old-fashioned fragrant sweet violet, is a charming thing to grow, but to be honest, you and I will never grow enough sweet violets to make a liqueur from them. Grow them for your own amusement, float them in drinks, and then go buy violet liqueur. My favorites are Rothman & Winter Crème de Violette from Haus Alpenz, and Crème Yvette from Cooper Spirits, the same people who make St-Germain. The flowers are hardy to about -20 degrees, prefer shade and damp rich soil, and respond well to being divided every few years. Look for Queen Charlotte, a popular old European perfume variety. This classic cocktail, the Aviation, was impossible to make until the aforementioned violet liqueurs came back on the market after a long absence. If you’re in the mood to experiment, try substituting any floral liqueur or syrup for the violet liqueur.

RECIPE:  The Aviation

1.5 oz gin .5 oz Luxardo maraschino liqueur .5 oz Crème de violette .5 oz fresh lemon juice 1 violet blossom for garnish Shake over ice and serve in a cocktail glass. Some versions of this recipe call for less crème de violette or less lemon juice; adjust the proportions to your liking. If you don’t have a violet for a garnish, a pansy or Johnny jump-up would be a botanically appropriate substitution. l

The Perception of Place Landscape as Muse at Plaza By Jason Marak

A

hundred people standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon will all be experiencing it in slightly different ways. The same breathtaking view might evoke memories of childhood adventures, hope for the future or a somber sense that time is passing. We project our personalities and histories onto nearly everything we see and do — making it hard to know just how others see what we are seeing. One of the few windows we have into shared experience is art. Well-crafted art, whether it’s a painting, poem, sculpture or song, can show us another individual’s experience, offering moments of intense recognition and often surprise. Local artists Libby George and Emily Silver provide some of these moments in their new work being shown at Plaza in Arcata. George and Silver work in different mediums and in very different styles. George has been working in pastels for more than 30 years, creating atmospheric landscapes and interiors. Silver has also been painting since the 1970s, but she works primarily in watercolor and her style is more abstract — as much about the qualities of the paint as the image created by it. Despite their differences, George and Silver do share some common ground: turning to landscape as muse and trying to capture the sense of a place more than the place itself. For George, living and working in Humboldt County is a huge factor in her art. In her expressive landscapes, the quality of light is immediately recognizable. “The light here — there’s so much water in the air all the time … the light is diffused,” she says. This diffused light, which causes the landscape to blur at a distance, helped shape her style. “I go visit my sister in Arizona, and you can see the mountains far away and they’re sharp — there’s no water in the air and everything is sharp and

clean lines. But back here on the coast and, I mean, 30 feet away you start losing edges. … I think it’s just extremely beautiful,” George says. “This area totally is the reason that my work looks like it does. If I moved to Arizona, I’d have to start all over!” George laughs. George begins her creative process outside, making accurate sketches of what she observes. Arcata neighborhoods are a favorite subject, her eye often drawn to smaller structures rather than more prominent buildings. After her sketch is completed, George brings it back to her studio and begins to transform it from simply a record of location to something that evokes a mood. “I actually color everything in like a coloring book and then I basically destroy it,” George explains. “I just rub everything around and lose the edges, and I totally destroy the image so that it’s just kind of a blur. And then I start bringing the buildings or the trees back slowly. … I just kind of go back and forth between bringing the shape and then letting the shape go away. …I guess I’m trying to recreate the feeling of it more than an actual representational painting of it.” The resulting work blends the ethereal and earthly in a way that very much captures the sense of our local light and landscape. Despite the fact that Emily Silver lives in Humboldt County and keeps her studio in

Ferndale, her work is inspired by the desert. Originally from Colorado, Silver maintains a very strong connection to the desert areas of western Colorado and Nevada. It is a landscape filled with compelling contradictions for Silver. She is drawn to it, she feels a spiritual connection with it and yet there is also the underlying sense of danger there. “I like the edginess of being in the desert,” she says. “It’s always got some discomfort involved. … I try to get a lot of those contradictory feelings into my work.” She accomplishes this by combining vague, irregular shapes with more regular or predictable forms like grids. Sometimes she will slightly offset the grids to heighten the sense of disorientation. “I’m really interested in illusion and hallucination and mirage and epiphany — things that are very ephemeral and vague, and I’m interested in making paintings about those things,” says Silver. “They’re not going to look like landscapes. They are more like moments of clarity or perception.” Watercolor is an important element in her creative process, offering oppor-

tunities for discovery and insight. Silver describes the hydrology of watercolor: the suspension of pigment particles in the water, the evaporation and the resultant patterns the pigment particles leave on the surface of the paper. “It’s sort of a microcosm of what’s happening all the time in land,” Silver says, “and that’s why I think it’s so perfect.” Perfect for work that more closely resembles elements of the landscape than a visual reproduction of it. Silver’s work at Plaza, primarily from a series titled “Salt Flats,” uses a palette suggestive of sunlight, rock and minerals, together with shapes that call to mind geological formations and patterns, to create work that captures the feeling of place without depicting the landscape explicitly. The viewer is more directly affected by sensation than by scene. ● Works by George and Silver are on display at Plaza, 808 G St., through Oct. 30. A reception for the artists will be held in conjunction with Arts! Arcata on Friday, Sept. 14.

Stranger Weather

Merle Haggard, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Blame Sally and the North Country Fair By Bob Doran

bobdoran@northcoastjournal.com

Merle Haggard

R

eturned from vacation in time for another over-full week of music in Humboldt — one with too many choices. We’ll start with the icons. Coming to the Mateel Saturday, outlaw country legend Merle Haggard with his band, The Strangers. Born in Oildale, near Bakersfield, Haggard has led a hard-knock life: In and out of juvenile detention as a teen, he served time in San Quentin before breaking through in country music. His 1966 No. 1 hit

“I Am a Lonesome Fugitive” could have been about his time here in Humboldt: He was once arrested on a fugitive warrant while pulling green-chain at an Arcata mill. Songs like “Branded Man” and “Mama Tried” tell more of his outlaw story, but, for better or worse, he’s probably best known for “Okie from Muskogee,” a redneck anthem from 1969 that poked fun at hippies and potheads. (Haggard later admitted he was stoned when he wrote it.) Now 75, the singer recently suffered a heart

attack and fought off lung cancer, but he’s still working and just released a new record built around another 1969 hit, “Working Man Blues.” Added bonus for the Mateel show: an opening set by biker festival faves The Fryed Brothers. Concert proceeds go to support South Fork High School. Around the time Merle was inventing the Bakersfield country sound, a hippie folk/rock supergroup was coming together in L.A. David Crosby came out of The Byrds, Stephen Stills was one of the guitarist/songwriters in Buffalo Springfield, and Brit Graham Nash had come over with The Hollies. Their 1969 hit album Crosby, Stills and Nash was a revelation with its sweet harmonies and songs about politics and the hippie lifestyle. As Crosby explained when I spoke with him a few years ago, the

band realized, “We [had] the power to spread these ideas, and they were good ideas — love instead of hate, peace instead of war, civil rights — it’s all good stuff.” By the time they played Woodstock, Neil Young had joined them, adding further power. While Neil is still out rockin’ in the free world with a new band, CS&N come together for occasional tours and sing the old favorites. That’s what you’ll hear Monday when CenterArts brings Crosby, Stills and Nash to the Van Duzer. The Arcata Playhouse rocks all weekend starting with a Thursday show by the San Francisco-based alt. Americana combo Blame Sally. Formed at the turn of the millennium by four female singer/songwriters (none of them named Sally), the band made a big splash at this summer’s Kate Wolf Fest, and the ladies


are ready to take Arcata by storm (after an opening set by local songstress Jan Bramlett, backed by Rick Copeland). Friday at the Playhouse, Casey Neill and The Norway Rats return for a night of folky rock, or maybe rocky folk. My vacation took me to Neill’s current hometown, Portland, where I caught a set by The N-Rats at a PDX pub. While Casey is an incisive, insightful songwriter, the show was on Joe Strummer’s birthday so he and his band were playing songs by The Clash — and they rocked, hard. You might hear a Merle Haggard song at the Playhouse Saturday night as Rooster McClintock draws heavily on Bakersfield-style country in its Humboldt honky tonk sound. Slingshot opens the show. Coming to the Playhouse Tuesday: a special songwriter circle with John Elliott, Texas journeyman Matt the Electrician (yes, he was once an electrician), and a duo called Birds of Chicago with JT Nero of the Chicago rock/soul band JT and the Clouds and Allison Russell from the Canadian folk combo Po’ Girl (who have played the Playhouse before). Should be good. Thursday at the Jambalaya heavy Humboldt psyche rockers Drifter Killer roll out a debut CD, Sweet Hero Shocker. (Try to grab one with the übercool limited edition black leather slipcase.) The bluesy Small Axe opens. 

Meanwhile across town, PDX rapper Cool Nutz stops by Mazzotti’s on his “I Am Portland” tour with guests Dubbleoo, DJ Fatboy and Chillest Illest. Nutz (aka Terrance Scott) is on the road behind a new album, Portland Ni%#a. Same night at Humboldt Brews it’s Eliot Lipp, an EDM artist whose latest is out on the Pretty Lights label. DJ Touch opens. (Is it really true that the bass lines from Pretty Lights’ Blue Lake show rattled windows in Arcata?) More EDM Friday at Nocturnum with WERKproductions presenting Yheti, Tæo and J3Tski. Tæo is also headlining Funkshun, “a celebration of local music and art” Saturday at the Manila Community Center, noon until midnight. Also performing: Onhell, Wrye, DAT1, Alien Lounge, Schedule1, Seatones, Jerboa and Goodshield Aguilar, plus “live art” by Demise among others and VJ visuals (a light show). Friday at Old Town Coffee, Josephine Johnson and her songwriter friend Sam Whitlatch open for lobo marino, a guy-girl duo out of Richmond, Va., playing what Josephine describes as “kind of grunge-y folk, a little Michael-Stipe-y-meets-Hope-Sandoval-ish. They found me on Facebook and thought I had a similar musical, spiritual, traveling ethos,” says J.J. “That’s kinda cool, eh?” It is. The annual Surf4Peace is all day Saturday on the North Jetty, followed by the Fallout 2012

After Party that evening at Arcata Theatre Lounge featuring Likwefi, a surf rock power trio that has been playing “experimental electronic organic life soundtrack music” since 2004. Also on the bill: Hella Kinetik with members of Moo-Got-2, plus local DJ Piper. Bonus: live painting by Matt Beard. Sunday at Humboldt Brews, self-proclaimed “Dirty Old One Man Band” Scott H. Biram stomps out a few bluesy numbers about drinking and debauchery. He’s touring with Restavrant (yes, with a “v”), a punk/folk/blues duo out of L.A. along the same lines. Monday, around the time CS&N finish their set at the JVD, Los Angeles-based alt. Americana folk rockers Rose’s Pawn Shop take the stage at HumBrews. For some reason founder/ songwriter Paul Givant‘s wide-ranging list of influences — Woody Guthrie, Bill Monroe and Hank Sr., The Ramones and The Pogues, songwriting by Elliott Smith and The Beatles — skips over the entire L.A. folk/rock ‘60s scene. The result: punky bluegrass that could come from anywhere. A Wednesday rock show at the Shanty features Natural Child from Nashville and Warm Soda from Oakland (ex-Bare Wires, in case that means anything to you). Shanty bartender Jon explains eloquently, “Natural Child is on Burger Records, which is a big deal in some circles — it’s pretty ‘70s Stonesy, but definitely updated

and hip — super swaggery and garaged out. Opening is Super Brown, a local Arcata band that’s pretty weird. Sometimes they’re kinda grooving psych garage and sometimes they sound like The Melvins with a trumpet. They also apparently like huffing paint — in theory at least.” (Pretty sure Jon’s kidding about the huffing.) Of course the big deal this weekend is the 39th annual North Country Fair Saturday and Sunday on the Arcata Plaza. You’ll find some details in the calendar section, but not much on the music. My quick Saturday picks: Lyndsey Battle, who starts at 10:30 a.m. (a little too early), Gunsafe at 2 p.m. and SoHum’s wonderful Lost Coast Marimbas, who close things out with ethereal jazz starting at 4:30. There’s lots more Sunday, but the high point might be at noon when former local William Coleman returns with his trio Ask Sophie, augmented by Marla Joy, Peggy Martinez and Jeff Kelley. Peggy explains that they’ll play some Ask Sophie stuff and something by Fred and Wilma (Peggy and Jeff), “but our main focus is to pay tribute to the fabulous and brilliant Kevyn Dymond, internationally recognized music composer.” Google “Arcata Kevyn Dymond” and you’ll find some idiosyncratic songs he recorded in the ‘80s - very cool stuff. See you at the Fair.  ●

Do You Want to Know A Secret?

Revealing games at Redwood Curtain By William S. Kowinski williamkowinski@northcoastjournal.com

L

ong ago and far away, I was party to a conversation between two multi-talented and wise women of American drama, Corinne Jacker and Patricia Cobey. Lingering by a stone wall, gazing at the Atlantic Ocean in the fading light of a long summer day at the O’Neill Center playwrights conference in Connecticut, they talked casually about the importance of theatre in their lives. “Whenever someone I know is having problems,” Cobey said, “I tell them to take an acting class. It always straightens you out. That’s where you learn that you can’t lie.” In Circle Mirror Transformation, now on stage at Redwood Curtain in Eureka, four members of a small Vermont community gather for a creative acting class. We soon learn that Theresa (Wanda Stamp) is a recently transplanted would-be New York actress trying to get over an obsessive love affair. Schultz (Dmitry Tokarsky) is a recently divorced local, a bit awkward and secretly artistic. Lauren (Mira Eagle) is a high school student buried in her hoodie who wants to try out for West Side Story. James (Gary Sommers) is the still handsome gray-haired husband of the instructor, Marty (Adina Lawson.) After a few classes Lauren pointedly asks Marty if they are going to learn to act

32 North Coast Journal • Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012 • northcoastjournal.com

in a play. Marty says probably not. It’s fair warning for the audience, too. This is not the usual stage storytelling. But during the offbeat exercises as well as encounters before and after the six classes we witness, characters are excavated and discovered, relationships change, and there are consequences to revelations and self-revelations. Circle Mirror Transformations is one of four plays by contemporary American playwright Annie Baker that are set in this Vermont town. Three of them were staged in the Bay Area in the past year — this one just closed at the Marin Theatre. After successful productions in New York (where it won a couple of Obies), Washington and Los Angeles, it is becoming a regional theatre favorite. This play invites and also requires a different kind of attention. The actual plot is fairly simple, and even predictable in TV reality show outcomes. But the story is told by every movement, every stutter and change in body language. It’s in the silences, and the odd and sometimes wildly funny exercises. These are theatre games — the play’s title is the name of one. Some involve one character pretending to be another. Some involve creating a group story. Others look like a cross between actors’ warm-ups and group therapy. Director Nathan Emmons and the cast make the

necessary precision of depicting this look natural. There are short fragments and sustained scenes. The dialogue is mostly banal, laced with psychobabble. Some liken Baker’s work to Chekhov because nothing apparently happens, but I see more of Mamet and Pinter in the way the characters use dull received language as masks that reveal them anyway. (Considering my last column it is a coincidence however that Baker’s adaptation of Uncle Vanya was one of its New York productions this year.) It’s a different kind of comedy. But it is a comedy. At the end of all the accidental honesty there’s a happy conclusion of sorts. And it’s funny (despite the reluctance of the small preview audience I saw it with to join me in laughing). I had problems with both the play and the production, but as long as audience members let go of conditioned expectations, this is an unusual and enjoyable two hours. The cast is skillful and endearing. I’d expect this is one that people will talk about. Daniel C. Nyiri designed the intentionally drab set (though maybe it didn’t have to be that drab). Lighting is by Calder Johnson, the interesting sound design by Nathan Emmons, costumes by Laura Rhinehart. Circle Mirror Transformation continues at Redwood Curtain on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through Sept. 29, at 8 p.m., with a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee on Sept. 23. Coming Up: Fox on the Fairway, a tribute to the stage and film farces of the 1930s and ’40s by Ken Ludwig, opens at North Coast Rep on Thursday, Sept. 20. More about upcoming seasons: Ferndale Rep is going through a management shakeup but early indications are that they are sticking with their season as announced. This Saturday, Sept. 15, Ferndale Rep presents Seth Kinman: Alive n’ Kikkin’ a one man show starring Charlie Beck as the bearded, grizzled Humboldt County mountain man and chair maker. At HSU, students are back and preparations are under way for Theatre, Film and Dance Department productions. The first is on Nov. 1, a special one-night reading of 8: The Play by Dustin Lance Black, about the court case that overturned California Proposition 8 and its ban on same sex marriages. That case is on appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Clint Rebik directs a cast from the North Coast theatre community. In late November, Rae Robison directs the classic Sanskrit love story Shankutala in a new adaptation by Margaret Thomas Kelso. In February, Michael Fields directs Hater, Samuel Buggeln’s 21st century adaptation of Moliere’s The Misanthrope. Then after the spring dance production and the Humboldt Film Festival in April, Michael Thomas directs David Auburn’s Pulitzer and Tony-winning play Proof. l

Kick it, four eyes! Ah, kickball: that beloved, classic grade school game. Miss it? Sure you do! Well, here’s a good idea: Lace up your sneakers and head over to the Arcata Community Center at noon this Sunday to boot that little rubber ball coming at you with a small dust cloud behind it. Kick it as far as you can. The nice thing is, at Six Rivers Planned Parenthood’s second annual Can I Kick It? kickball tournament you can feel good about yourself — unlike your humiliating 5th grade gym class where you waited forever to be picked. Almost 20 teams signed up for the event last year and raised about $9,000 dollars — that’s enough money to pay for 900 pregnancy tests or 60 annual exams or 30,000 condoms, says Six Rivers Planned Parenthood youth engagement advocate Chelsea

Barto. Try to wrap your head around those numbers. Not to boast, but the Journal’s own Ryan Burns put together a team last year that raised more money than any other squad. It earned his teammates a pizza party. Someone should give him and his Superfantasticos a run for their money. If you’re reading this and you want to play, hurry up and call Six Rivers Planned Parenthood at 707-4422961 ext. 243. The deadline is technically Wednesday, but organizers might be willing to stretch it for the good cause. All you need is seven of your friends, and each member is asked to raise at least $35.

Don’t fret if you miss them, though. There will be a booth at the fair where you can quickly put something together. What should you be? Well, says NEC Programs Manager Dan Ehresman, in the 30-year history of the parade, he’s seen just about every animal, except one: the pangolin, a kind of thorny armadillo that’s definitely worth a Google images search.

Season of the Suck

In the dead zone between summer and fall, Hollywood crap washes ashore By John J. Bennett filmland@northcoastjournal.com

Reviews

THE COLD LIGHT OF DAY. It seems we are slipping down to the nadir of the cinematic calendar. Late winter/early spring is usually regarded as the doldrums: The studios unload the worst movies of the year between awards season and summer blockbuster time. But now, either due to lack of imagination or quality content or both, the end of summer has apparently become a second dumping ground. And we are right in the middle of it. There isn’t an angle from which to approach The Cold Light of Day that makes it look like anything but a complete failure. The actors, though capable and proven, are almost all miscast; the plot is hackneyed and threadbare; the action scenes rumble noisily along without any excitement or fun. Think Hitchcock without the style, humor or intelligence. Will (Henry Cavill) is a 30-something businessman whose company is failing. In the midst of bankruptcy proceedings, he joins his family for a sailing vacation in Spain. Dad Martin (Bruce Willis) is supposedly a cultural attaché with the U.S. Embassy in Madrid. After a falling out with the parents, Will leaves the boat to spend a day in town. When he returns, the boat and his family are nowhere to be seen. After some predictable, pointless interactions with the local police and a shadowy Israeli, Will reconnects with Martin. Turns out dear ol’ dad is actually some sort of black-bag CIA operative with a lot of enemies, some of whom kidnapped the rest of the family. Spoiler alert: Martin gets

Lounge brings back Mike Meyers’ doofus secret agent in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999). This is the one with Heather Graham. On Sunday night, Adventure’s Edge presents The Radical Reels Tour, a collection of “the best highadrenaline films” from the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival. The YouTube trailer posted on ATL’s website is pretty jawdropping. Next week’s Sci-Fi Pint and Pizza Night, on Wednesday, features Logan’s Run, the campy 1976 saga of an idyllic future where nobody lives past age 30. That will be followed by a “vintage Italian space opera” called Escape From Galaxy 3 (1982).

Continuing Bruce Willis and Sigourney weaver in The Cold Light of Day

taken out at a late-night meet with the vaguely sinister Carrack (Sigourney Weaver), sending Henry on the run. Aided by an ingénue, he runs around Madrid wild-eyed, somehow avoiding what should be certain death at the hands of myriad assassins. The strangest thing about The Cold Light of Day might be the fact that the filmmakers managed to rope in Willis and Weaver. They may not always pick winners, but you’d think they’ve both been around the block enough times to recognize a loser when they see one. And, for that matter, why would a studio pay the salaries of veteran A-list talent, only to put them in a project like this? We may never know, and frankly it’s not worth spending any time or energy thinking about it — or watching the movie, for that matter. PG13. 93m. THE WORDS. The makers of The Words seem to think that adding needless narrative layers to a story will make it complex or compelling. They’re wrong: It just makes a longer, duller movie. In this case, a tactless story within a story within a story, all ostensibly about beauty and pain as experienced by writers. Despite some charm and depth in the cast, it plays like a TV movie. Our first writer, Clay Hammond (Dennis Quaid), opens the proceedings by giving a reading of his latest novel. The protagonist is our second writer, Rory Jansen (Bradley Cooper), who in struggling to get published has plagiarized a manuscript he found in a cast-off briefcase. Said manuscript being the work of our third writer, The Old Man (Jeremy Irons). The narrative plods along, shifting between the postWorld War II experiences of The Old Man, Jansen’s rise from mail-clerk to publishing wunderkind, and Hammond’s increasingly uncomfortable interaction with a sexy fan (Olivia Wilde) during and after his reading. It pains me that a movie about writers and writing is so unimaginative, poorly plotted and badly written. The story has been told countless times before and misses the opportunity to do anything thoughtful or original. At the heart of the

story is a vague notion about bleeding for one’s craft and the terrible guilt that should attend the theft of another’s work. But these subjects are dealt with cursorily and then too-conveniently filed away. Cooper, handsome and sensitive, does what he can with a poorly drawn character. Irons tries mightily to convince us that he really is an Old Man. Quaid does what we expect from him, but it’s hard to say why his character even needs to exist. For me, Zoe Saldana is the standout as Cooper’s loving, long-suffering wife. Other than her performance, The Words is overlong, under-written and unremarkable. PG13. 96m. —John J. Bennett

s it a bird? Is it a sail? Nope, it’s Following Current Events, Eureka boardwalk’s new dynamic sculpture, sitting in its own pond of water next to the Madaket ticket office at the C Street dock. The pond isn’t just a design element; it’s what makes this sculpture dynamic. The water is the means of propulsion. Twin jets from a recirculating half-horsepower pump spin 10 stainless steel vanes at the base of the 25-foot tall sculpture. “I wanted to create a work of art which people could see from all angles,” says artist and gallery owner Jack Sewell. “Since most people don’t usually walk all around a sculpture, I created the next best thing: a piece that spins while they stand still.” As already discussed in the Journal (“Sum of the Parts,” May 3), the main element of the sculpture is a squashed ellipse, an endless 5-inch-wide by 5/16-inchthick strip of polished stainless steel which gives the viewer the sense of a sail at sea, reinforced by the water at the base. Spinning the “sail” proved to be more of a problem than Sewell and his collaborator, local mechanical guru Peter Portugal, had anticipated. They originally designed the 850-pound moving structure to pivot on its steel foundation post using an industrial 6,000-pound-capacity, double sealedbearing hub. Sounds good … except it barely moved when the pump was first turned on. They devised four independent solutions to solve the problem. 1. The shape of the pond turned out to be critical, since the force of the jets

has to be channeled into the vanes, not dissipated into the surrounding water. So the concrete subcontractors reshaped the pond to create a deeper, smaller bowl (which actually matched the original design). 2. Sewell and Portugal added a lower bearing — five nylon wheels — to supplement the main bearing, to help stabilize the heavy sail. 3. Despite Sewell’s best efforts when constructing Following Current Events, it didn’t balance perfectly in no-wind conditions. By the time you read this, he will have bolted about 240 pounds of lead to the base of the structure, similar to balancing an auto wheel by adding weights to the rim. 4. Sounds obvious, yet …the two filters in the pump housing can clog up! This was especially the case at the time of installation. Now they need cleaning only occasionally. The idea was to create a dynamic, yet low-maintenance, sculpture that would reflect its location on the bay. Other than powering the pump, the moving sculpture requires no more looking after than a typical static work of art. “It’s all stainless steel, with aluminum birds, so it should never corrode or deteriorate. Come back in 100 years, it’ll still be turning,” promises Sewell. l Barry Evans (barryevans9@ yahoo.com) admires Sewell’s “art meets science” creation on his daily perambulation of the boardwalk. (Gotta get those 10K steps a day.)
