Alejandro Lazo’s article (“California Wildfire Smoke and the Climate Crisis: Four Things to Know,” Sept. 7), sums up a nightmare scenario for civilization: “Fires worsen climate change, and climate change worsens fires.” Wildfires emit massive CO2, and all CO2 traps heat. Most foresters believe that thinning forests would reduce fuel loads in the forest and reduce the scope and intensity of wildfires. The scale of work required is daunting, but we seem to have little choice.

Massive fuel load reductions would produce millions of tons of dead wood, and how to dispose of this biomass is another problem. The most common method is incineration at a biomass plant, but this is hardly a solution to our emissions problem. One look at Humboldt Sawmill’s biomass plant in Scotia tells us that much. The plant burns only its own sawmill waste, yet it emits as much CO2 as 70 percent of all of Humboldt’s cars and trucks, and it also emits illegal amounts of air pollution that have led to numerous violations of the Clean Air Act and Clean Water regulations. All of that generates just 21 megawatts of electricity. The supply of biomass in years to come will dwarf the piles of sawmill waste in Scotia. We must utilize it in ways that won’t overwhelm the atmosphere with greenhouse gases or poison our air with particulates and toxic pollutants. Some of the alternatives, such as making oriented strand board and veneers, have been around for a long time. They have environmental impacts, of course, but they sequester carbon. Making hydrogen and bioplastics are two emerging technologies with a lot of promise. Perhaps the best solution would be treating our range lands with composted biomass. That has a net carbon negative outcome. There are no silver bullets, but better practices for

biomass utilization is a huge priority for the climate.

‘All Wood Smoke is Toxic’


It was noted in a recent article (“California’s Wildfire Smoke and the Climate Crisis: Four Things to Know,” Sept. 7) that “Wildfire smoke is toxic, containing substances such as carbon monoxide and benzene, a carcinogen.”

In fact, all wood smoke is toxic and contains several known carcinogens, including benzene. This includes wood smoke from wood stoves.

Twelve years ago, the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality performed air toxics monitoring in Klamath Falls (population around 22,000). The DEQ estimated that wood stoves emitted 8 tons of benzene there during the wood-burning season. Other heat sources emitted almost none.

Wood smoke is a potent mix of toxic compounds and fine particles that are linked not only to cancer, but also to developmental harm in children, heart attacks, strokes, dementia and more, including premature deaths.

The most hazardous components of wood smoke are not visible; you don’t have to see smoke to be harmed by it.

Just last month, researchers with the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences published a study linking increased lung cancer risk in women to wood stove and fireplace use. They found evidence of increased risk even when the study subjects only occasionally heated with wood.

Neighbors of wood-burning households can routinely be exposed to air pollution levels that are 100 times higher than what others in the community are breathing, or

that o cial regulatory air monitoring reflects.

There is a widely held belief that because wood is natural, burning it must not be harmful. But this simply isn’t true. We need to have much greater awareness of this significant source of harm.

to the A Toast Towns Here’s to you!

First o , I want to thank you for remembering us here in Rio Dell regarding the Dec. 20 earthquake and the aftershock on Jan. 1 (“Forgotten in Rio Dell,” Aug. 31). This was a devastating event in the history of our little town. My home su ered at least $30,000 worth of damage. It looked like someone had picked it up and shook it, and everything was all over the floor, my chimney was broke o below the roof line. My garage doors were torn o the hinges, and everything that I had stored away in the rafters came down upon my cars, knocking a 3 inch hole in one of them on the roof.

It was one of the worst earthquakes in California history, but we did not qualify for FEMA disaster relief. If the same size earthquake would’ve hit Sacramento, Los Angeles or San Francisco, it would’ve been a FEMA disaster in a national emergency. Unfortunately, we’re only a small town of 3,000 and we didn’t qualify for nothing much more than a couple of small level grants and loans.

If you go through Rio Dell, you won’t find hardly one chimney that’s still standing, all been knocked down, and on my street alone one house is completely o its foundation, and the other house has the entire front of the house laying in the side yard. To anyone who is reading, please call state Sen. Mike McGuire’s o ce and our other elected representatives and reach

out to them and see if they can please give us assistance because we are still really hurting. I spent $6,000 out of pocket just to fix my garage doors that have been torn completely o the hinges. Thank you, Humboldt, for being there for us.

‘A Troubling Trend’

The community of Fortuna was jolted Sept. 8 by news that police had arrested two teenagers in possession of handguns, one of whom had allegedly bought the weapon to school as part of an apparent “beef” with another student.

The two arrests — hours apart of a 13 year old and a 15 year old — are the latest in a string of firearm-related arrests and violence involving teenagers in the Friendly City, following the arrest of a 19 year old on suspicion of attempted murder in connection with a July 24 drive-by shooting and an Aug. 27 incident in which a 17 year old reportedly accidentally shot himself in the groin.

“I think it’s a troubling trend and the more we uncover, the more troubling it is,” Police Chief Casey Day said of the latest arrests. “Our main concern is getting these guns off our street and protecting our community and our kids.”

The latest arrests center around Eel River Community School, located on Newburg Road, which serves about 90 students in seventh through 12th grades and is run by the Humboldt County Office of Education (HCOE). Eel River is one of five community schools run by the county office to

accommodate students who come “via referrals from the department of probation, school attendance review boards and school districts,” and are generally “temporarily in need of a supportive, alternative educational program in order to progress academically and socially,” according to the county office’s website.

HCOE Director of Outreach and Community Engagement Stacy Young said a community member came forward and told Eel River Community School staff the morning of Sept. 8 that a 15-year-old student planned to bring a gun to campus that day. Young said staff immediately called the Fortuna Police Department and put the school on what’s known as a “soft lockdown,” meaning students remained in class with their teachers, but the doors were locked and the campus was on alert. Police, meanwhile, surrounded the campus with a plan to apprehend the student when he arrived.

At 9:22 a.m., the student arrived in the school’s parking lot as a passenger in a car and was immediately detained and searched, with officers reporting finding a semi-automatic 9mm Glock handgun with a loaded magazine, as well a loaded magazine for a .22 • Thursday, Sept. 14, 2023 • NORTH COAST JOURNAL 7

caliber rifle, according to the police department. He was taken into custody without incident and booked into juvenile hall on suspicion of illegally possessing a loaded handgun on school grounds, possessing live ammunition and other charges.

Day said the student was known to police, as he had been arrested back in February on suspicion of attempted murder, robbery and concealing evidence. Day said the teenager was then released from custody after a risk assessment, with a trial date set for next month.

As to the most recent arrest, Day said the preliminary investigation indicated the teen brought the weapon to school as a part of “a beef” he was having with another student. He said it’s unclear where he obtained the handgun, noting it was unregistered and does not appear to have belonged to anyone in his family.

“The juvenile was in a situation where he was staying with a 19-year-old girlfriend or acquaintance that was outside of any traditional family setting,” Day said.

Hours after news broke of the first arrest, Fortuna police announced they had taken a 13-year-old Eel River Community School student into custody, also for gun possession. Day said that the investigation into the 15 year old led his department’s problem oriented policing team to social media accounts that led the department to obtain a search warrant for the 13 year old, who they tracked down on McCullen Avenue in Eureka and booked into juvenile hall on suspicion of a variety of firearms charges, as well as making criminal threats.

Day said the specifics of the pair’s “beef” were not yet clear, and he was unsure whether it was a “mutual disagreement” or something more one-sided.

The firearm found on the 13 year old came back to a registered owner.

“It was what we call unreported stolen,” Day said, noting the registered owner — whose home the 13 year old had access to, though he is not family — didn’t realize the gun was missing until police called.

Young praised school sta and Fortuna police’s handling of the situation.

“They were swift and they were careful, and no one was hurt and everyone is safe,” she said.

Young said a HCOE crisis response team, including a school psychologist and a school safety director, responded to Eel River Community School on Sept. 11 to meet with students and sta , and will provide “ongoing support as needed.” Additionally, she said all county schools are reviewing their school safety plans in the wake of the arrests.

Day, meanwhile, said the police investigation is ongoing.

“By no means is the police department done — we’re continuing to look at evi-

dence and pursue other leads,” he said.

On July 28, Fortuna police announced they’d made an arrest in a shooting that occurred four days earlier, with detectives saying Miguel Angel Moreno, 19, had opened fire on someone out of a moving vehicle over a years-old grudge stemming from a dispute at a quinceañera.

Then, last month, police responded to a report of a gunshot fired on Smith Lane to find a 17-year-old lying on the ground, bleeding from what detectives later determined to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his groin area. Day said investigators believe the juvenile was riding his bicycle home and had the firearm in his waistband “or pocket area,” when he reached down to adjust the weapon and “inadvertently pulled the trigger,” shooting himself. Police alleged the boy then tried to cover up what had happened, going home, changing clothes and stashing the gun under his mattress before family members found him and called an ambulance.

Day said the gun in that incident is believed to have come from a “source outside the home,” though it was still under investigation.

The police chief expressed frustration with new laws in California that significantly limit the circumstances under which police can interrogate minors aged 17 and under, and that resulted in the 15 year old arrested Sept. 8 being released from custody after his February arrest for attempted murder.

“Those types of violent o enders belong in jail, and accountability needs to return to the state of California,” Day said, adding that those who “want to point the finger” should look at the Legislature, not the folks running the local juvenile hall.

As to the spate of recent cases involving teenagers and firearms or gun violence, Day said his department was making juveniles carrying firearms “a top enforcement priority,” though he said he does not believe it is an issue unique to Fortuna.

Day said he’s grateful to the community member who came forward with information about the 15 year old bringing a gun to Eel River Community School, adding that he’s hopeful anyone in the community with information about illegal firearms possession will do the same.

Young agreed.

“A community member stepped forward and said, ‘I am concerned about this.’ If that had happened in every place we’ve heard of school shootings, would their outcome have been di erent?” she said. “We are just so grateful that community member came forward.” ●

Field Note for Sam

Editor’s note: Sam Armanino, a 2017 graduate of Humboldt State University and former intern, videographer and photographer at the Journal, was killed Aug. 31 in a mountain biking/trail clearing accident near Lake Tahoe. He was 28. A celebration of Sam’s life will be held Sept. 23 at South Lake Tahoe Brewing Co.

Skiing before walking. Recognizing authority figures and challenging them immediately. Lover of both Dave Brubeck and Black Sabbath. Sam Armanino never shot down lox on a bagel. Linda Stansberry worded it so well, saying that he was someone you wanted to wow just so you could witness his vivacious laugh bursting from his gawking mouth to reveal the tiny gap in his two front teeth. You would often catch him in just-skinny-enough jeans, Vans, T-shirt and flannel combo, with a backward five-panel hat, skating around with his Canon DSLR, finding captivating stories in the nooks and crannies of the North Coast.

Sam’s stories were often filled with typos or poor punctuation, which I had the honor of cleaning up before he sent them o . Aside from the minor errors, he dug into stories deeply until he hit bedrock, and even then, he continued to dig. His storytelling

was so eloquent it kept you itching to dig further into the topic yourself, and kept me asking for creative writing advice. But stick a camera in Sam’s paws and this is where all hell broke loose. His photos provided enough context you sometimes didn’t need to read the piece that ran with them. I rarely hid from his camera lens; he had a knack for always making my worst look like my best.

Sam wrote for and was editor-in-chief for HSU’s The Lumberjack, where he investigated the massive houseless student population, and stayed up into the early morning hours covering what the LJ sta thought would be a Clinton win until they quickly had to pivot. Sam interned for the NCJ, which eventually led to a brief and miserable stint as a crime reporter for the Times-Standard, until he gave that newspaper the finger and excitedly rushed back to rejoin NCJ in its marketing department. He covered Indigenous youth protesting outside of Wells Fargo, their arms dripping in black-dyed molasses to mimic oil to express opposition in the bank giant’s financial support to DAPL, and the mysterious past of the Coral Sea, which earned him his first cover story for the NCJ, among many other intriguing stories.

For me, Sam showed what’s to love about Eureka through the annual Taste of Main

Street event. Sam was also my go-to partner in spur-of-the-moment decision-making, like making the drive to Hornbrook to again throw up a finger at Iron Gate Dam before turning around and driving home, all in one day. Sam played a role in a characteristic change in myself to challenge authority, and now I sometimes simply can’t help myself in acting on that quality (thanks, Sam). There was always an exuberance behind his desires to expose controversial stories, but these traits were also strewn throughout Sam’s day to day. There was perpetual stoke in all that Sam did and a drive to do more, always with loud music playing in the background.

As I write this now, I want to ask Sam to review it to make sure it flows well. The goofiest of goofs, the one to shave the back of my head, the one to stay in the boat on Hell Hole, the one to run the last couple dozen feet with me on my first marathon, the one who dreamt of café racers. You never cease to astonish me or make me laugh, and you will be deeply missed. Snap photos of where you’re at. ●

Marisa McGrew is a long-time friend of Sam’s. She is a Humboldt State University graduate and remained in the area to work as a fisheries biologist. • Thursday, Sept. 14, 2023 • NORTH COAST JOURNAL 9

Meet David Webb

David Webber lives right down the road from Westwood Murphy’s Market on Alliance. He loves to talk sports with the manager, Conrad, whom David says is an excellent manager. “They’re like family. I’ve gone in there so often that I know everyone’s names. Shawna does the produce and always has a smile for me.” David said, while also mentioning Mike and Chris at the meat section and Zoraida at the register.

“It’s a nice little store with nice little items. Everybody there is so nice. They will always get products in if I need them.”

David moved up from San Francisco five years ago. Peace, quiet, and green attracted him to Humboldt. “I moved North to follow my weather,” says David.

David is a veteran who served in the U.S. Army from 1978-1985. He spent the Cold War stationed in West Germany near Czechoslovakia at the time, guarding nuclear weapons in a “tactically nuclear capable” artillery unit. They would go into Nuremberg for guard duty in Germany when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan in 1979. “It’s been an interesting life and none of this I planned- it just kind of happened.”


CPH Admin Optimistic Despite Not Meeting Enrollment Projections

To some, Cal Poly Humboldt’s enrollment glass might seem half empty.

After all, the university’s current enrollment numbers — which won’t be finalized until Sept. 18 — show an uptick from last fall of just 2 percent, an increase of 123 students where the campus had projected a spike of 2,000 just six months ago. That puts the campus behind enrollment targets that were hoped to see a near doubling of its student population by 2028 and leaves the university also facing a permanent 5 percent funding reduction under a new California State University rule if it fails to increase enrollment by 862 students next fall.

Chrissy Holliday, Cal Poly Humboldt’s vice president of enrollment management, however, says she sees the glass as half full for a few reasons.

First, Holliday notes, this is the second fall in a row that Cal Poly Humboldt has seen enrollment growth, which previously hadn’t happened since 2015. That’s significant, she says, especially with enrollment down across the California State university system in recent years.

Second, Holliday says, applications were up 85 percent this year over last, with more than 7,000 more first-time undergraduates alone applying to Cal Poly Humboldt for the fall of 2023 than the previous year. Admissions were way up, too, with nearly 8,000 more prospective students at all levels having the choice of attending

the university.

“The Cal Poly name drove a lot of interest in us,” Holliday says. “How do we close the deal on that? How do we let them know what’s special about us?”

The challenge over the coming years is to close the gap between admissions and enrollment, Holliday says, adding that she already has some plans. One thing that’s become clear, Holliday says, is the Cal Poly name has put the university into competition for a different type of student with different types of universities.

“We’ve really moved into a new market space and having to position ourselves differently,” Holliday says, noting the school is now more appealing to students in STEM disciplines and tasked with convincing them it is a better fit than one of the state’s other polytechnic universities, or schools like University of California at Santa Cruz, with established reputations for science programs. “I think our best argument for us is location and areas of study.”

Humboldt is a special place, she says, and the school needs to pitch kids interested in the sciences on coming to live and study in a “living laboratory” where redwood forests, mountains and the Pacific Ocean are all within reach of campus.

To aid that effort, Holliday says her department is revamping all of its recruiting materials to market Cal Poly Humboldt’s strengths to a more specific type of prospective student. Additionally, she says, it’s

working to facilitate more individual contacts with prospective students, whether it be by mail, text message, email or a phone call, noting that it’s found personalized contact results in more engagement.

In that vein, Holliday says Cal Poly Humboldt is also working hard to host more events and other opportunities to get prospective students to campus, like spring and fall “preview plus” events that bus prospective students to campus from other parts of the state. The belief is both that to see Humboldt is to fall in love with it, but also that the university wants incoming students to show up knowing the campus and community they’ll be studying in, as it will help retention. Holliday says retention is a key component of enrollment growth, making it important that the university prioritize recruiting students who are likely to be a good fit and stick around on campus.

It’s worth noting that the latest numbers for Cal Poly Humboldt’s fall semester have the number of new incoming students down ever so slight — by two students — so it’s actually an increased retention rate that’s driven this year’s modest enrollment increase.

With the enrollment stakes already high, as university officials used projected increases as part of its sales pitch to the state to give it the polytechnic designation, the CSU system recently implemented new rules that pushed them higher.

In January, the system announced that in the face of a systemwide 25,000 student

decline since the fall of 2020, it will start penalizing campuses that miss their enrollment targets by 10 percent or more by permanently withholding up to 5 percent of their annual funding allotments, though it won’t start doing so until the 2024-2025 school year, at the earliest.

Cal Poly Humboldt’s enrollment target is set at 7,603 full-time students, or 1,622 more than are currently on campus. To avoid the CSU penalty, it appears Cal Poly Humboldt will have to increase enrollment next year by 862 students.

Holliday says there’s a silver lining to the university not meeting its enrollment projections, noting it allows additional time for its infrastructure buildout of classrooms and, perhaps more importantly, housing to progress before a spike in new students.

Speaking generally about the university’s target of nearly doubling enrollment by 2028 to serve some 11,000 students, Holliday says she’s optimistic.

“It’s going to take a little bit of time to get established in this new polytechnic space and for growth to happen, but I’m confident that we are still going to meet the long-term goals the campus has for enrollment,” she says. “We are going to celebrate the growth that we have and keep pushing toward our goals.”

The three people found dead earlier this month in an apparent murder-suicide at a McKinleyville home died of gunshot wounds, according to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office.

They have been identified as Kimberly Anne King, 62, and Kip Kari King, 58, who resided in the home with Max Gerald

Hunt, 81, the boyfriend of Kip King’s deceased mother.

Hunt is suspected of shooting the married couple before killing himself.

“As this case is still under investigation, we are unable to disclose additional information regarding motive or circumstances surrounding the incident,” sheriff’s office spokesperson Samantha Karnes said Sept.

8 in an email to the Journal

The three are believed to have been dead for at least a week when they were discovered Sept. 4 but likely longer, she said.

According to previously released information, deputies responded to the residence on the 1400 block of Marty Avenue around 2:30 p.m. to conduct a welfare check after one of individuals missed an appointment and could not be reached.

The HCSO noted in a Sept. 6 news release that several suicide prevention services are available, including the following 24-hour hotlines: Suicide Prevention

Lifeline: 988, press 1 for veterans. Ayuda en Español: 988. The Crisis Text Line by texting HOME to 741741 and the 24-hour Behavioral Health Crisis Line at (707) 4457715 or toll-free (888) 849-5728.

Second Chances

The North Coast’s only wildlife rehabilitation center needs a hand up

It seems to happen almost every fall, Humboldt Wildlife Care Center co-director Monte Merrick says. Fledging western grebes, small, white-throated sea birds widespread on the Pacific Coast, move from protected marshlands and sloughs to the open ocean just as a storm is moving in, only to find the waters too rough to navigate and wash up on the beach by the scores.

The thing is, this fall, it’s also an apt metaphor for the Humboldt Wildlife Care Center, itself. The only wildlife rehabilitation facility between Santa Rosa and Oregon, the center — operating on a thin budget with a skeletal staff that includes just two full-time employees — relocated from its humble Bayside campus to a new property in Manila in April, just before the wildlife baby boom season that typically sees scores of orphaned critters entering its care in need of help to find an elusive second chance at living a wild life. And, for whatever reason, this year’s baby boom was an onslaught, arriving in a relentless flow as center staff worked to transform

its new property from a run-down residential lot into a functional rehabilitation hospital with the variety of enclosures needed to house everything from raccoons to raptors to sea birds.

By the time August rolled around, the center had admitted more than 750 animals — patients, it calls them — into its care at the new center, including some 200 opossum babies and dozens of motherless racoons, not to mention fawns, chipmunks, squirrels and dozens of mallards.

“Showing up and setting up while you’re admitting animals — it’s not ideal but it’s something I’m used to,” says Merrick, who was drawn to wildlife rehabilitation through oil spill response.

But the commotion of the summer months left little time for fundraising — the lifeblood of the community-based nonprofit, which operates on an annual budget of about $225,000, with about $30,000 coming from grants and the balance from mostly small donations. Additionally, one of the center’s largest single fundraising events — the North

Coast Co-Op’s Seeds for Change roundup, which usually raises about $10,000 over the course of a month — had been moved from its customary June to later in the year. So in mid-August, Merrick found the nonprofit with just about $500 in the bank with bills coming due, unsure how he’d be able to pay off the center’s last shipment of fish in order to get its next, per its ongoing agreement with Pacific Choice Seafood.

Merrick, whose nonprofit Bird Ally X merged with the Wildlife Care Center in 2014, first posted an urgent fundraising plea to the nonprofit’s website, but says it got little traction with limited reach through the center’s Facebook page. He then tried a direct email to supporters with the subject line “Code Red!!!”

“About a month ago our resources to get through the summer began to dwindle, getting dangerously low,” Merrick wrote. “Ordinarily the support we receive each day, each week, each month, gets us through — it’s a shoestring existence, and hand to mouth, but we get it done. … This

year is another story. … We cannot go on like this. Please help.”

Merrick says the email went out at 8:30 a.m. and by that afternoon the center had received about $2,000 in donations, enough to pay some bills and continue operations. But with seabird stranding season upon us, the workload is unlikely to ease. Patients will keep showing up in need of care, Merrick says, as the center continues to work to build out its new facilities, with eyes on finishing a raccoon enclosure, expanding one for fawns and adding a trio of sea bird pools.

Under a brilliant blue sky wisped with clouds on a recent Friday morning, Merrick is giving the Journal a tour of the property, which currently consists of a garage that’s been converted into an exam/office/care facility, with a cluster of out-structures temporarily housing various animals.

“I’m not a fundraiser by nature,” Merrick says. “I’m much more of a show up in the middle of nowhere, build a hospital and rehabilitate some birds and go home kind of person.”

Standing in front of two large dry erase boards that list the center’s current patients, the one on the right listing adults, the one on the left with babies, describes how the center operates and his passion for the work seeps through. The center hasn’t always had a good reputation, he says, noting that it was derided as a bunch of “bunny huggers” when he arrived, which is the antithesis of the work it does now.

“No, actually, we don’t hug bunnies because it would habituate them to us and ruin their lives,” he says.

Merrick says the center’s sole goal is to rehabilitate wildlife to be released back into the wild, to give animals that have been injured or orphaned a second chance at life. To do that, sta need to nurse the animals back to health while being careful to keep them wild, not habituating them to human care. It’s a delicate balance that takes many forms.

For the raccoons, for example, it means keeping them in an enclosure that mimics their habitat, with a small stream running through, some short trees and tall brush. When it’s feeding time, the kits aren’t just given a bowl of chow. Instead, sta place fish in the stream, bugs in the grasses and fruit in the trees in an attempt to teach the omnivores to forage for themselves.

As Merrick talks, Lucinda Adamson — the center’s only other fulltime employee — walks through the o ce space and reports that the pelican found near Smith River ate its breakfast, to which Merrick replies with an even-keeled, “Yay.”

An ideal doctor-patient relationship is built on open communication, Merrick says, noting that even vets can communicate with their patients’ owners, getting a rundown of the animal’s symptoms and backstory.

information about their patient, without consent and with an urgent need to keep the animals at arms’ length. Navigating such a space ethically takes intention, he says.

“First, you need to remember why you’re doing it,” he says. “This is a second chance and without it, [the animal] will die. I’m going to assume they want that second chance.”

Second, he says, it’s incumbent on rehabilitators to get “good and fast” at their tasks to reduce the stress on the animal. But ultimately, he says, there are generally only two ways animals leave the center’s care: “back to freedom or euthanasia.”

About half the center’s patients are euthanized on admission, having come in so injured or sick the sta ’s only ethical choice is giving them as quick and painless a death as possible. Of those that make it through the admission process, Merrick says about 60 to 70 percent are rehabilitated and released into the wild in a place sta think they can thrive. For raccoons, that’s generally a remote location about 5 miles inland, while mallards are generally released into the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary.

How to help:

Looking at the dry erase board, Merrick notes that many of the center’s patients arrive at its doors due to some kind of human intervention. He points to a baby western pond turtle whose original condition is listed as “kidnapped.” Someone, he says, found a turtle egg being eaten by a snake and decided to take the egg out of the snake’s mouth and bring it to the center.

“We don’t have that,” he says. “We don’t even have their consent.” Sometimes, he says, sta can guess what happened to lead an animal into their care. For example, a robin found dazed on the ground next to a house likely flew into a window, he says, while it can be surmised one found in a similar state next to the road was hit by a car. But those are just guesses.

“We never actually know,” he says. “Maybe it was dropped by a hawk.”

And this is the space in which the rehabilitation center’s sta work, with limited

“I mean, I think the snake gets to have dinner,” he says, shaking his head before explaining that he never scolds people, who, no matter how ill-informed, try to save wildlife, saying education is always the center’s approach. “Beating people up for making a compassionate mistake in the world we live in seems like a bad use of energy. Compassion is to be rewarded.”

As Merrick talks, Adamson and a couple of the center’s interns prepare to make a house call for the Humane Solutions program. That program, he says, has its own white board, pointing to a small rectangular board with two notes scrawled on it.

have taken up residence in her yard, noting she didn’t want “to shoot them.”

Through Humane Solutions, Merrick says the center works to help area residents navigate wildlife-related problems in a way that works for everyone. In the case of skunks — a frequent issue this time of year — Merrick says that means helping residents understand that this is a temporary situation, that the only time skunks hunker down close to someone’s home is when they are raising their kits. When the little ones are strong enough to move on, they will, which usually only takes a couple of months. Then, he says, center sta talked about tiered options.

For example, imagine a mother raccoon has chosen to bring her babies under your house to raise them in the void behind your bathtub, Merrick says. First o , he says, “hats o to mother racoon.”

“It’s a safe place,” he says, noting it provides protection against predators and shelter. “It’s a brilliant move but there are lots of reasons somebody doesn’t want a raccoon on the other side of their bathtub.”

The ideal solution, he says, is convincing the resident to just wait it out, that if they’re hearing the animals, it probably means the kits are growing and likely only have a month or so before they’ll be ready to move on. Once they do, Merrick says center sta will work with the resident to shore up their house to make sure no other critters look to make it a home, temporary or otherwise. But if the residents aren’t comfortable with that, Merrick says sta will work to “convince mom the gig is up.” Sometimes that’s as easy as poking a head into the attic and making eye contact, Merrick says, though sometimes it requires more extreme measures. One method, he notes with a chuckle, is blasting talk radio and shining lights into the area the animals are inhabiting for a couple of days.

In addition to dayto-day operations, the wildlife center is a key component of the North Coast’s oil-spill response apparatus. Tamar Danufsky, the facility coordinator emeritus of Cal Poly Humboldt’s Marine Wildlife Care Center, says in the event of a spill impacting birds, Humboldt Wildlife Care Center sta would help wash oiled birds, after which they would be rehabilitated at the center.

Additionally, Danufsky says the Oiled Wildlife Care Network requires that any volunteers doing this type of work have rehabilitation experience, noting the wildlife care center is the “portal” to give students and community members this type of experience. Danufsky says many of the university’s students have participated in the center’s internship program, noting that Merrick and his wife Laura “brought extensive experience in wildlife rehabilitation and raised the level of care provided to professional standards” when they took over the Humboldt Wildlife Care Center.

Karen Recinos hopes to one day be a part of that internship program. A wildlife conservation management student at Cal Poly Humboldt, Recinos is from Southern California and says she had no experience caring for wildlife, so she signed up to volunteer at the center. She says it’s been great, noting that while she thought she’d likely just be cleaning enclosures and washing dishes, she’s gotten to help

manage patients’ care, watched a procedure done on a great heron, assisted with tube feedings and taking “poop samples.” She’d even gotten to help release some opossums and a skunk.

“Volunteering there has helped me realize this is something I want to do for my career, for my life,” Recinos says.

And that’s huge, Merrick says, as this isn’t glamorous work and people aren’t lining up to do it.

“The field is aging out,” he says. “It doesn’t pay well and it requires a level of dedication that you don’t learn in college. You do it because it matters to you.”

Merrick says he’s also heartened that it’s

work that matters to the local community, noting it’s those small donations — some made monthly, some annually and some simply by customers rounding up at the grocery store — that make up the vast majority of the center’s budget. And it’s that community support, he says, that prompted the Arcata Economic Development Corporation to deem the nonprofit “scrappy” and agree to help finance the purchase of the new property, with local donations providing the 20-percent down payment.

Looking around the Manila property, Merrick says he didn’t want to move the center and had hoped it would work to keep it in Bayside, noting he told the center’s previous landlord, “I spent my 50s building this place. I don’t want to spend my 60s building it again.” But now, he says he’s just focused on the future and the opportunity ahead.

“We get to develop it how we want and try to make something sustainable,” he says, noting he’s excited about the planned new enclosures and the quality of care they’ll allow the center to give its patients.

But ultimately, how much the center is able to do and for how long is up to the community, a concept Merrick says he’s fine with.

“I like that I have to explain that to my neighbors,” he says.

As Merrick is talking, a first-time volunteer shows up and is directed to sign in. Meanwhile, Adamson and her crew have returned from the Humane Solutions skunk call. Merrick asks how it went.

“She loves the idea that they were eating the grubs that are killing her lawn and the mice,” Adamson says. “And suddenly, skunks were cool.” ●

Snapshot in a Glass

Miles Garrett’s natural wines

How in the world can something so divine, ancient, romantic, soul-soothing and downright delicious not be good for you?

Wine hangovers and headaches, seem a cruel joke in the universe’s long, convoluted comedy set. But lately many wine lovers are considering “natural” wine the answer to their prayers, and it’s hit the market in recent years with the popularity and fervor of crop tops and Crocs.

We have some top-tier producers here in Humboldt County. Trinity River Vineyards has created a delicious Wild and Spontaneous line in a collaboration with Libations owner NaRayan Urciuoli, who also curates incredible natural wines at the shop. Briceland Vineyards also has some fantastic, fun, bubbly Pet Nat options, among others. But Miles Garrett, who runs the eponymous winery, is one of the small minority of local winemakers brave enough to only make this style, accepting the risk for the reward of creating wines he believes in.

Generally speaking, natural wine is made with as few chemical or external additives as possible. There is no certification for an official natural wine, rather it is a descriptor or marketing tool that the winemaker can use to describe the style. Still, natural wines are usually made from grapes that are certified as organic or biodynamic, meaning the grapes were cultivated without pesticides and herbicides. Natural wines are also fermented with natural yeast, which creates different flavors depending on its origin. Instead of purchasing commercial yeast that’s tried and true to ensure the fermentation reaches completion, natural wine makers prefer to take the risk and use yeast from their own land, so the finished product is a snapshot of the vineyard.

Perhaps the most touted and contentious aspect of natural wine is that it’s made with little to no sulfites. Sulfites are naturally found in foods (mostly fermented) as well as the human body, and are also added to wine and other foods and beverages to preserve them. Sulfites are incredibly helpful to winemaking as they help preserve the freshness and ex-

tend the life of the wine. But sulfites have recently been accused of causing headaches and brain fog, and so consumers have been edging more and more toward wines labeled “sulfite free” or “made without sulfites.” But there is debate among medical and wine communities alike about whether sulfites cause these negative effects.

Though some people are truly sensitive to sulfites, the Food and Drug Administration puts the percentage at around one percent. And there has been compelling research to prove that many negative effects are related to histamines derived from grapes (largely from the skins, leading to a stronger reaction to red wine) and are an inflammatory, allergy-like response from the body. Or maybe it’s just a hangover. Look, I’m not a doctor and please do whatever makes you feel best, but I wouldn’t count a wine out just because it doesn’t say “sulfite-free.”

The result is a unique, rustic and sometimes funky flavor that captures the terroir or sense of place. Wines have been made in this way for centuries, long before this trend, and many small, boutique wineries have always produced their wine with all or some of these key traits. So, if the funky, hipster style of natural wine isn’t your jam but you would still like to stick to wine with fewer additives, wines from most small producers are a good bet.

Garrett recalls finding his love for winemaking by harvesting wild grapes and making wine “out of curiosity” 15 years ago, saying he has always had an intrinsic love for growing and farming. So, when his neighbors, then owners of the Winnett Vineyard in Willow Creek, chose to retire and sell their vines and winemaking facility in 2016, Garrett leapt at the opportunity to expand his hobby.

His first professional vintage was in 2017 and he has remained dedicated to the goal of producing all natural wines since. The vineyard had first been certified as organic in 1999 and Garrett has maintained it as such, using dry farming, meaning it’s not irrigated and no pesticides or herbicides are used on the vines beyond the necessary dusting of sulfur to prevent mold.

16 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, Sept. 14, 2023 •

No sugar or acid is added to the wines, and the fermentation is done using only natural yeast. And finally, you guessed it, Garrett doesn’t use sulfites (aside from the minimum required for cleaning the winery, which is essentially untraceable in the wines themselves).

“I’m not against sulfites,” Garrett says, “I just don’t use them in my wine.” He explains that he believes wine should tell the story of the place from which it comes, and that the use of sulfites, yeasts and other additives only masks that story. “Since we farm the fruit, I find it to be a more honest expression,” he says. “Sulfites are really just safeguards [and] protect your investment,” he says. Which leads the inquisitive to wonder about the success of his own investment. Luckily, Garrett says aside from smoke from the wildfires in recent years, he hasn’t had any trouble with his grapes or his wines, and has worked to address classic concerns in other ways (e.g. controlling the success of the yeast in fermentation with temperature.)

You may be asking yourself what the Miles Garrett wine tastes like with all these careful practices. Let me be candid here: I do not normally enjoy natural wines but I love these. Remember when I said that they can be a bit funky? Garrett is determined to “keep the funk out” and make approachable, enjoyable wines by prioritizing the fruit flavors, and aging the wine in neutral French oak and stainless

Celebrations Tamales

steel (which is not the cool thing to do in the natural wine world).

The unique brightness of each of his wines make them stand out in a tasting as well as on a shelf with the eye-catching hues and labels designed by Garrett’s wife, Carla Barroso, the marketing and business powerhouse of the winery. Though you really can’t go wrong with any of his wines, the two that stand out as my favorite are: the 2021 Riesling (on skins), which has complex but refreshing notes of nectarine, white peach, orange blossom and Earl Grey tea, with an intriguing balance of bright acid and slight tannin; and the 2020 Carménère and Cabernet Franc blend which is a fresh compilation of marionberry, green bell pepper, boysenberry, butterscotch and lime zest, with mouth-watering acid and a bite of tannin. I recommend slightly chilling the latter.

So if you’re looking for a wine to accompany the natural beauty of the landscape we call home, taking it along to share with out-of-town friends, or joining me on the couch to watch TV, the Miles Garrett Wines will o er a perfect “snapshot” of Humboldt County.

Something for Everyone

For reasons of space, as well as a general exhaustion from my personal life that has set in with the coming seasonal shift, I am going to keep this intro brief. Sometimes it’s good for a writer to shut up and let the facts speak for themselves. This a busy week full of exciting happenings, with diverse talent galore. You will find some gold in this flow, I promise you. Beyond that, I’ll leave you with a snippet from the poet W.H. Auden, who was writing about a September date long ago, one with more weight and consequence.

“There is no such thing as the State And no one exists alone; Hunger allows no choice To the citizen or the police; We must love one another or die.”

You heard the man, skedaddle and get to it.


I’m happy to suggest another unique show at the always interesting venue known as the Sanctuary. This time it’s a nice bit of chamber music titled Cozy Classicals and put on by a talented quartet of locals Julie Fulkerson, Jesse Alms, Katie Swisher and Holly MacDonell. There’s a pre-show dinner option at 6 p.m., which requires reservations and tickets from This will run you between $20-$50. If you’d like to skip the meal and just catch the show, the doors open at 6:45 p.m., where you can grab a ticket for $10-$20 and settle in by the 7 p.m. program starting time. Works for me.


The Brothers Comatose are a lively string band whose repertoire spans the roots range of Americana, from bluegrass to country and beyond. This quintet has a fairly large following, no doubt due in large part to its exciting stage presence and high degree of musicianship. You can find out for yourself at Humbrews at 9 p.m., where local pickers Fickle Hill will provide the opening salvo ($25, $20 advance).


Brazil is a massive nation whose considerable size and diversity is met and matched by its cultural exports, particularly its musicians. We were blessed recently with a visit by the groundbreaking psychedelic Tropicalia band Os Mutantes, and tonight we are once again treated to the presence of another, albeit more contemporary, innovative artist from the largest nation in South America. Rogê is a singer, songwriter and (mainly classical) guitarist whose work pushes the samba of his homeland into new mutations with pop and world music. He has a great many collaborations on his CV, including with the breakthrough Brazilian songsmith Seu Jorge and the massively popular soft surf rocker Jack Johnson, with whom he released two tunes last year. He’s a hard cat to pin down genre-wise, to be honest, but talented in a way few musicians can translate so effortlessly across cultures. This is going to be a great show, I can just feel it. And it’s going down in the intimate space of the Miniplex, with a ticket price ($18, $15 advance) that seems like a steal. Do yourself a favor and check out this one at 9 p.m. It’s my certified pick of the week.


Let’s assume I don’t have to sway anyone regarding their desire to attend or avoid the last day of the North Country Fair, and instead focus on a fun Sunday workshop a few miles north at the Trinidad Town Hall. Musician and Westhaven Center for the Arts affiliate Rob Diggins is putting on a “play-in” for youngsters, aspiring teenage musicians, their parents and legal guardians, and any of the young at heart who have an interest in learning some of the basics of the stringed family of acoustic musical instruments, from the bowed to the plucked and strummed. This free workshop runs from 3 to 4:30 p.m., and ought to be a blast for those of you out there looking for a more productive and less crowded, group collaboration than the aforementioned fair.


It’s a quiet night on the Redwood

Range, so instead of live events, I’m going to suggest a little history exploration. The 1960s have always been something of a mythical enigma to those of us — particularly Americans — born in the decades after. This decade of tumult and change happens to be bookended by two unrelated events, both occurring on Sept. 18, that were parts of a larger political and cultural gestalt that shifted the world at large, and probably not for the better. First up, in 1961, was the death of U.N. Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld, over modern Zambia (then called Rhodesia), in a plane crash while en route to negotiate a ceasefire in the Congo. The crash was then, as it is now, considered suspicious, the first of a series of strange deaths of populist figures like Patrice Lumumba and JFK, that it could be argued are smeared with the fingerprints of a certain American intelligence agency that has (again, arguably) served as the muscle for the U.S. power elite since its inception. Hammarskjöld remains the youngest elected U.N. Secretary General, the only person posthumously given a Nobel Peace Prize and a diplomat held in the highest regard by the aforementioned youngest elected U.S. President, who would go to his early grave two years later. That’s enough political intrigue; let’s talk culture for a second. Because on this date at the other side of the ’60s (in 1970, to be exact), one of the greatest musical innovators of the electric age also met his tragically early end, a victim of the drug culture excesses that helped define the era’s youth movement. I have always considered Jimi Hendrix to be one of the

few genuine “what ifs” of the forever 27 club, as I think the breadth of his genius is so vast that he would likely have created masterpieces for the full span of a longer life. This is about the closest that I come to entertaining counterfactuals. We are stuck in this timeline for now and all we can do is study, reflect and guess. Better thinkers than me will tell you something similar.


Popular Samoan American reggae artist J. Boog is back in town, setting up shop at the Arcata Theatre Lounge tonight at 7 p.m. for an evening of So-Cal/Jamaican vibrations. Openers THRIVE! are cut from a similar style, and the tickets range from $39.50 for general admission, to a preshow meet and greet with the headliner for an extra hundred bucks. Choose wisely.


Midweek seems as good a time as ever for a jam band gig and this group is still fresh enough to catch them on the exciting upswing part of the career. As with many bands in this genre, Eggy has a funny, slightly annoying and memorable name. I am told the group does the noodling, building and delivering act very well. Only one way for you to really find out though: Head over to Humbrews at 8 p.m. where you can snag a $19 door ticket if you didn’t grab a $16 advance stub. Party on. l

Birding with Dogs

One of the things I enjoy most — besides birding and Giants baseball, of course — is spending time outdoors with my dog Aggie.

In a perfect world, I’d be able to combine two out of the three and look at birds with Aggie by my side. But our attempts thus far have been, well, imperfect at best. Birding is all about patience and focus, and there tends to be a lot of standing around. It’s hardly a sprint, more of a stop-and-start marathon: I once arrived half an hour late for a guided bird walk at the Arcata Marsh, fearing I’d missed the group. But I found them 50 feet from the parking lot, scoping out something in a tree. That’s the nature of the activity.

It’s not, however, the nature of dogs, or at least my particular dog. Aggie might allow me 20 seconds to zero in on a Western tanager before a tug at the leash reminds me it’s time to get moving. If that doesn’t work, she’ll stand on my toes, a technique that never fails. So, on we go. I don’t mind following her lead — our

stroll through the neighborhood or on the wooded trail near our house each morning is often the sweetest part of the day.

Though she may be short on patience, she excels at alerting me to the presence of birds. Her ears pop up like the timer on a frozen turkey and if I follow her gaze there’s usually something of interest ahead, like a varied thrush or a Steller’s jay. But thanks to a dollop of retriever in her DNA, her overriding instinct is to fetch the bird and drop it at my feet, so she has a nice purple leash she’s seldom without.

Sometimes when I dash out to chase a rare bird, she’s waiting by the door giving me those eyes (you know the ones), so I bring her along in the car. Here again, she’s a work in progress: Last winter as we were driving through the Arcata Bottoms in search of a stumpy cattle egret and Aggie got a little worked up over the “cattle” part. My ears are still ringing. But I believe synchronicity is entirely possible with dogs and birding because I’ve seen it in action. Local birder Greg Gray’s dog Lucy seems an ideal birdwatching companion: mellow, patient and not overly concerned with other creatures. Gray says that’s because he started bringing her along as a young pup and taught her the ropes. “It’s a win-win: I get to bird-watch and she gets to sni e and snu e about in the great outdoors,” he says, adding that her presence also provides a measure of protection when he’s in Humboldt’s less birder-friendly areas.

Protection may not be a primary concern of Humboldt

bird guide Rob Fowler, whose dog Katniss weighs less than 10 pounds. However, she has patience in spades and when it’s not tick season, the two of them cover a lot of ground at the local hotspots. I suspect Katniss has a bigger life list than I do.

Then there’s Bongo. He’s a young, strong guy with a lot of energy who leads an active life with his people. He’s never met a bird he didn’t like — or a skunk, or a bear. “Bongo has an independent mindset and a high prey drive,” says owner Leah Alcyon. “So, he’s really the best birding companion because we have to go out a lot and therefore, statistically, we should see birds!” Alcyon theorizes that an increase in Bongo’s obedience training should lead to a corresponding uptick in rare bird sightings.

I suppose with some fine-tuning Aggie, too, could become a model birding dog. But I love her just the way she is. Her skills lie in other areas. She never lets spilled food sit on the floor for long and she dedicates herself to making every visitor to our home feel welcome. She senses, somehow, when things aren’t going so great and is always there to make me feel better. She gets that I’m a work in progress, too.

And lately we’ve had some pretty exciting birding successes: We saw a beautiful indigo bunting in Blue Lake and my first Franklin’s gull at Clam Beach. Granted, there were a few minor hiccups — I’m sure Aggie didn’t mean to knock me into that poison oak — but it doesn’t matter. I’m just incredibly lucky to get to hang out with my best friend.

And at least there weren’t any cows. • Thursday, Sept. 14, 2023 • NORTH COAST JOURNAL 19

The Nun II is a Holy Terror

THE NUN II. I would like to begin by acknowledging mistakes were made. Calendar editor Kali Cozyris and I giddily planned a trip to the movies as soon as we saw the trailer for this sequel, assuming we, as supernatural horror fans, were up to it. Granted, she should have worn a thicker shirt in which to tuck her face when the ghastly figure appeared at the end of a hallway. And it was Kali who whispered that the rising dread in one scene had to be a fake-out, a false alarm we could relax for. (It was not.) But I also failed my companion. I chose the early showing, leaving us alone in the largest theater, the audio booming around us in the dark. And demanding she hold off on a trip to the ladies’ room so as not to leave me alone was, in hindsight, unfair. So was berating her for returning to her seat on cat’s paws and appearing next to me like a phantom. There were recriminations, the top-of-theroller-coaster realization that we were out of our depth and actual screams. But nearly two hours later, we wobbled back into daylight, stunned and a little punch drunk, with our working relationship mostly intact in the wake of director Michael Chaves’ breakneck horror, so I’m calling it a win.

Already, I can hear the chorus of “It wasn’t that scary” from those whose fear-processing amygdalas are either congenitally the size of chia seeds or whose adrenal glands have been blown out by running from bulls, the Trump administration or bingeing Saw movies. We all have different emotional buttons, different frequencies that spike our fight-or-flight responses — jump scares, gore, violence, hauntings, creepy children, evil dolls, possessions, monsters — all of which have been tapped within the Conjuring universe. Here, the majority of them are masterfully brought forth by a fine cast, excellent camerawork and effects, and, to borrow from Jane Austen, with no compassion for my poor nerves.

In the ever-spinning web of the Conjuring universe, the demon Valak attacks the Warrens (Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson), the central supernatural investigators, in various forms, sometimes cosplaying a nun (Bonnie Aarons). The origin story of the costume, if not the demon itself, is the subject

of The Nun (2018), in which a hefty wedge of Hell breaks loose in a remote Romanian abbey in 1952. Dispatched by the Vatican to investigate a suicide there, a priest (Demián Bichir), a novice named Irene (Taissa Farmiga, whose familial resemblance to Vera can’t be for nothing) and a random French Canadian who goes by Frenchie (Jonas Bloquet) barely escape with their lives, all of which is outlined in the exposition of The Nun II to gather up newbies and/or those for whom 2018 was several lifetimes ago.

Following these events only a few years later, The Nun II opens at speed, with a priest levitated and immolated in a French church. Sister Irene, now a nun, is deployed into the field again when the priest’s killing lines up with a number of other grisly deaths among clergy, all in a path that runs back to Romania. With rebellious young nun Debra (Storm Reid) in tow rather than an exorcist, they find, between inquiry, dusty books and Irene’s often terrifying visions, the common thread running from horror to horror is Irene’s old pal Frenchie, now employed at a girls’ school in a former monastery. There, he tends the grounds, moons over a young Irish teacher (Anna Popplewell) and befriends her bullied daughter (Katelyn Rose Downey). And possibly acts as the unwitting vessel for a centuries-old demon cut loose from its Romanian prison and now bent on destruction. C’est la vie, Frenchie.

That the Catholic church recognizes demonic possession and exorcism, carried out by its priests, as its remedy, makes it the forever favorite among horror movies. (Good luck writing a horror story about Unitarians.) The harrowing lives and deaths of the saints, with their visceral torture images, are rich soil, too, as evidenced by the reference to martyred St. Lucy in The Nun II. (One wonders whether this material will satisfy forever or if the more recently documented horrors of the church might eventually leak into horror plots.)

Once The Nun II hits its stride, the pacing is relentless. Chaves keeps the anxiety high in quieter scenes as flashlights track

the walls and corners of an abandoned chapel, and the sound is at its best without music, when the sizzle of holy water on stone or the cracking bone or glass sing alone. But as he sets frantic scenes back to back, there’s little time to recover. Aarons’ wild eyes and facial contortions are the demonic gold standard — I’m certain she could make a horse rear with a glance.

Farmiga and Reid turn in strong performances, though the script gives them little to do but brave solving the mystery and battling the beast. Likewise, Bloquet’s physicality communicates a lot but there’s much more that could be mined than we’re given. The characters’ inner workings and struggles are sacrificed to keep the roller coaster of anticipation and fear on track, but maybe a stronger (likely not scarier) movie could have been made with a few judicious trades to give the sequel a little more soul. As it stands, the rush of a good scare is enough. R. 110M. BROADWAY, MILL CREEK. l

The Einstein Problem

“It’s a wild ride. It’s completely unlikely and should not be taken as a model for how scientific discovery ever happens. It’s completely ridiculous.”

— Craig Kaplan, co-author of the recent paper on aperiodic monotiles

Sometimes, from the simplest of beginnings, emerge whole worlds of complexity. Einstein’s general relativity can be expressed in a compact equivalence: Gμν= (8πG/c4)Tμν, while the psychedelic fractals of Benoit Mandelbrot’s “set” emerge from this slim equation : Fc(z) = z² +c. And, as of a few months ago, mathematicians have been going gaga over not an equation, but a simple shape. It’s the “hat” (or half tucked-in tee shirt) pink polygon shown above: the world’s first aperiodic monotile.

Consider a tiled bathroom floor. Obviously square or rectangular tiles, all the same size, can fill the entire area of the bathroom without gaps or overlaps. Same with triangular or hexagonal tiles, including combinations. These are examples of periodic tilings: You could pick up a portion of whole tiling, slide it by some distance without rotating it, and superimpose it perfectly on top of a stationary copy. Then there are aperiodic tilings: No matter how you move a swatch of tiles around, you’ll never be able to line it up on top of a similar-size swatch. Even with an infinite-size bathroom, the tiles will never match up because there will never be a repeating pattern.

In the early 1960s, mathematicians didn’t know if aperiodic tilings were even possible, but apparently the problem caught the interest of some of them. In 1966, electrical engineer Robert Berger figured out how to do it with a set of 20,426 distinct tile shapes, which he later reduced to 104. Soon after, British polymath Roger Penrose discovered a set of just two different shapes — ”kites” and “darts” — that he proved could only be laid in a non-repeating mosaic. Until last year, that’s where the arcane world of aperiodic tiling stood, with a minimum of two shapes (including other pairs besides Penrose’s original) needed to fill an infinite plane in never-repeating patterns. Thus was conceived the Holy Grail of Tiling — could two be reduced to one? It was

Tiling the plane aperiodically with hat tiles. Note that about one in seven (black tiles) are flipped over, by necessity. Since the original discovery, solutions have been found that do not require flipping. Images by Barry Evans

dubbed “the einstein problem,” not after Albert but from the German for one stone, ein stein). For nearly 60 years, the general belief was that if such a shape existed, it had to be wildly complicated — otherwise someone would have easily found it.

But it wasn’t complicated at all; it was practically waiting in plain sight! The “hat” is merely eight right-angled “kites” drawn within a hexagonal grid. Self-styled “hobbyist,” Yorkshireman Dave Smith, was playing around with polygons using Jaap Scherpuis’s Polyform Puzzle Solver application when he stumbled on the shape last November. He emailed University of Waterloo math professor (and tiling enthusiast) Craig Kaplan, asking him to confirm that he’d solved the einstein problem. Kaplan checked it to the limits of his own computer software before bringing in two mathematical colleagues, Joseph Myers and Chaim Goodman-Strauss, to be doubly sure. In March, the four of them published an 89-page paper (arXiv:2303.10798) presenting the hat shape to the world, including not one but two proofs of its aperiodicy.

At which point, the dam burst. Within weeks, hobbyists and mathematicians discovered endless variations on the original hat, which requires flipping over about one in seven tiles (black in the photo). Soon after, the “spectre” was found, which eliminates the flipping. And the flood of discoveries is ongoing. If I were advising on The Graduate today, instead of telling Benjamin (Dustin Hoffman) that the future was plastics, I’d say, “Tiles.” l

Barry Evans (he/him, barryevans9@ has found new meaning in life with his set of hat tiles from Etsy.

Using live resin provides a robust flavor experience along with a full-spectrum and vibrant high. How? By flash-freezing freshly harvested cannabis plants, the rich terpene profile and potent cannabinoid content is preserved. The terpenes and cannabinoids work synergistically in what is called “the entourage e ect”, to provide well-rounded and potent cannabis products that can address depression, anxiety, lack of appetite, and more.
