Drinkin’ Memories Editor: Andrew Goff’s “The Rural Bar Crawl” (Sept. 13) brought me back 25 years to my then home along notorious China Creek, in southern Humboldt County. My parents liked to visit me, but no way were they staying at my place. So they checked in at the newly built Humboldt House Inn, along the southern drag of Garberville’s only real street. Late afternoon of their first day at the inn, a dozen camo-clad Aryans poured out of trucks sporting kill-grins and M16s. The Campaign Against Marijuana Planting was in full bloom, and the cops stayed at the Humboldt House as well. Dad was bemused, and from then on their Garberville home was “the CAMP Motel,” which we call it to this day. Dad was raised in west Sonoma County, as was his dad, as was I. The rural bar was a fixture, someplace to drop in after work or a domestic spat. Living in Guerneville during the 1960s was a lesson in anything goes. Particularly exciting were weekends when Bay Area biker gangs took over the town. It may have been the only time Dad was nervous in a bar.
While Mom watched TV in the CAMP Motel, Dad found the Blue Room. This was fall 1988, and CAMP was ravishing Humboldt grows, helicoptering into homesteads. You could feel the tension. When Dad walked into the Blue Room, looking every bit the bank vice president that he was — polo shirt, clean white shorts, perfect silver mane — it was like a movie. “There were 30 people in there and everyone — everyone — turned and stared at me for a long time while I moved to the bar,” he told me. He got his drink, struck up conversation as he might have in his hometown with the logger, the bookseller, or the aberrant dilettante, and he quickly fit in. Greg King, Arcata Editor: Simon LeGree’s Roadhouse Saloon was owned by Tom and Nancy LeGree in the 1970s. They were a happy, middle-aged couple and not bigots or “assholes.” They also had a sense of humor and named their Airedale Simon. As Bette Midler says: “Fuck ‘em if they can’t take a joke.” Katherine Bauer-Helwig, Burnt Ranch continued on next page

Dumb or Devious? Editor: Friday’s blog item on the GPU process (also in Blog Jammin, Sept. 20), with Burn’s concluding question in response to Virginia Bass’ comment: “Could these be marching orders? Or is it coincidence that Sundberg and Bohn’s confusion and concerns led them to this very same idea?” pretty much sums up what some have long speculated: that Rob Arkley front group HELP, promoting the interest of developers, speculators, realtors and large landowners, funded this new majority’s campaigns to carry out their agenda. I’d like to give Sundberg and Bohn the benefit of the doubt and believe that they are just not capable of comprehending the policy document which they were elected to vote on. However, the cynic in me suspects they are only claiming to be this dumb in order to fulfill the agenda they were sent to carry out. We all make mistakes; the trick is to learn from them. Will the voters of Humboldt County learn from theirs? The ultimate blame lies with us, the voters, but the media shares some blame too. Where was the vetting process during the elections? Why were these men — now making statements like “It’s superoverwhelming to me” and “I’d like to have some knowledge so maybe I’d have a bit of understanding” — not quizzed on their grasp of the biggest issue that would be facing them during their term in office? We now have folks in charge who either have ulterior motives for acting dumb or actually are dumb. I’m not sure which is worst, but if they intend to act so brazenly on behalf of their funders by discarding what has cost the taxpayers millions of dollars and the thousands of hours of staff (and Planning Commissioners) time, we should note that when these individuals run for re-election. David Isley, Eureka Editor: During recent meetings, County Supervisors Ryan Sundberg and Rex Bohn expressed confusion and being overwhelmed about the draft General Plan Update (Blog Jammin, Sept. 13 and 20). As board members, both should have the intellectual capacity to comprehend this document, its history, and how it differs from the 1984 plan. Supervisor Virginia Bass bravely piped in that she’d never seen such a lengthy plan.

Supervisors Sundberg and Bass have had ample opportunities to ask staff for clarification. Before he retired, Supervisor Jimmy Smith provided an orientation to incoming Supervisor Bohn. Because the draft GPU is such a critical document, I assume an in-depth review was a training topic for Supervisor Bohn before he was sworn into office. When Planning/Building Department staff is assigned extra work, such as on the draft GPU, as seemingly directed by Supervisors Sundberg and Bohn, it takes staff away from their usual work for the board members’ constituents. When their constituents complain, who will they blame? Of course, it will be the Planning and Building Department administration and staff. I urge voters to follow the money donated to the campaigns of Supervisors Bass, Sundberg, and Bohn to understand from where these new questions have arisen, and who is behind their attempts to change and/or postpone the approval of the new GPU. When Ms. Estelle Fennell is on the Board this January, I expect her to join the majority of supervisors in opposing the draft GPU, in accordance with her campaign’s funding sources. Thank you to Supervisors Lovelace and Clendenen for explaining that a comparison of both plans is included in the current draft. It has been previously reviewed and publicly vetted during innumerable meetings. Teresa MacClelland, Eureka

County Staff Finds a Way to Clarify the GPU for Supes
Supes Offer Grab-bag of Reasons to Torpedo GPU
It was standing-room only at yesterday’s special meeting of the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors. “Was it something I said?” joked Fifth District Supervisor Ryan Sundberg, who last week expressed confusion and concern over the general plan update process and suggested possible changes to that process. Many, including this reporter and Sundberg’s fellow supervisor, Mark Lovelace, interpreted those comments as the opening salvo in an effort to undo some or all of the work that has been done on the update so far. Not so, Sundberg asserted. “Just to be clear, I don’t want to kill the general plan. I don’t want to start over.” Sundberg said he was just seeking a way to clearly track the changes between the existing framework plan, which has been in effect since 1984, and the updated draft, 12 years in the making and approved by the planning commission. “I take responsibility for my part in not being clear about that,” Sundberg said. Interim Planning and Building Department Director Martha Spencer then laid out a proposed method to help make things more clear. For each element of the general plan under consideration, Spencer said, staff would prepare two reports: one looking back and the other looking forward. Report No. 1 would compare the framework plan with the planning commission-approved draft (as Sundberg requested) and provide background on the reasons for any changes. This would be prepared before any board vote on the element in question. Report No. 2 would be prepared after the vote, examining the big-picture implications of the board’s decision, clearly stating the changes that had been made to the framework plan and providing a potential blueprint for implementation. Sundberg was pleased, and tranquility settled across the land. Or not. The crowd had come loaded for bear, and while many eased off the trigger in appreciation of Sundberg’s comments, most fired away. Developers, contractors and other property-rights advocates thanked the three conservative supervisors for the suggestion they now disavowed — namely, starting from scratch with the 1984 framework plan and updating it just enough to comply with

GOVERNMENT / BY RYAN BURNS / SEPT. 18, 10:48 A.M.
state and federal laws. Others, including environmental activists, argued that the update process represents years of hard work and compromise from all corners and urged the board to move forward. Even county planning commissioners, who spent years helping to craft the current draft plan, disagreed on the best approach. Current Second District Commissioner Mel Kreb urged the board to respect the efforts of others. “You inherited the work done by previous supervisors, planning department staff and the planning commission. You need to ask yourself if you trust any of the work that those people did, because you repeatedly hear from people here who say you should not trust anything that’s ever been done in this process. And I just reject that idea outright. It’s an insult,” Kreb said. But former commission chair Jeff Smith urged the board to think independently. “None of you were on the board when this ship set sail … but the bottom line is, whether you’ve been on the board for 15 minutes or 15 years, it doesn’t matter. This is gonna be your plan, and it’s up to you to do what you think is right.” Public comments continued for nearly three hours, leaving the supervisors no time to proceed with the task at hand — continuing its review of the general plan’s land use element. Instead, the board elected to skip the remainder of that contentious element for now and move on to chapters five and six (community infrastructure/services and telecommunications) at the next meeting, to be held Oct. 1. Staff will prepare new reports for those chapters, as proposed.
BEACHES / BY HEIDI WALTERS / SEPT. 14, 6:33 P.M.
Like Californ-i-ayyy Wait, it is Californ-i-a. It’s the North Jetty, Humboldt, California, actually, and they’re surfing down there today — and tomorrow! Our production dude Drew Hyland went down to the jetty today (“working,” you know, wink wink) and took some fine photos of the Surf4Peace action, an event to raise money for Humboldt Surfrider and The Humboldt RampArt Collective. Drew reports: I watched heats 3, 4 and 5 today. Looking back, they seemed to be about 15 minutes long, but time flies when you’re taking photos on a beautiful day. The sun was out and the water was glassy and smooth, but the waves were small and the surfers struggled to get good rides. Tomorrow, the men’s competition will continue and then the women will compete. When I left, I saw people constructing a skate park in the gravel/sand/dirt parking lot near the north jetty. According to the Surf4Peace ad in Savage Henry magazine, skate ramps are also a featured venue/event. Surf and ocean art phenom Matt Beard was there with merchandise and is supposedly going to do live painting. He was not painting when I was there. “If everybody had an ocean/Across the U. S. A./Then everybody’d be surfin’…” Hey, you’ve got an ocean, get out there! If not to get all BeachBoysy on us, then at least to watch these porpoise-like people do their thing. ●

The video of Monday’s [Sept. 10]– contentious general plan update meeting of the county board of supervisors is now available for viewing (see the link on our website). If you have the time it’s well worth your while. The original report* on the meeting mentioned a handful of reasons offered by the board’s new conservative majority — Ryan Sundberg, Rex Bohn and Virginia Bass — for throwing the switch to derail the general plan update process, now in its 13th year. But as the full video reveals, over the course of the meeting this trio of supervisors suggested a wide variety of excuses for undoing much of the work that’s been done so far. Here are the ones we caught. (The relevant debate starts around the 84-minute mark.) 1. IT’S TOO CONFUSING “I guess the more I look at this the more confused I get. … It’s super-overwhelming to me, I know, to try to go through this thing and understand it. The more I read it, it seems like, the more backwards I get. So [Bohn and I] met with [Interim Planning and Building Department Director] Martha [Spencer] to ask, is there a way we can bring this thing down to something digestible … basically take the  framework plan, is what we talked about, and then making it up to state code[emphasis added].” —Ryan Sundberg “I wished I had the knowledge that, I mean, that Mark [Lovelace] had. He’s got to work on this for 12 years. I’d like to have some of that knowledge so maybe I’d have a little bit of understanding.” —Rex Bohn 2. THOUGH NEARLY COMPLETE, THE UPDATED PLAN MIGHT SOMEHOW COST MORE MONEY THAN SCRAPPING IT AND STARTING OVER “I don’t know if we can afford the plan that’s here. I think we can afford a Yugo and I think we’re building a Cadillac sometimes with all the extra addendums and everything else when we just need to worry about the state and federal mandates.” —Rex Bohn 3. PRIVATE PROPERTY RIGHTS AND VALUES NEED MORE PROTECTION “I made promises to people that I would protect their property rights and continued on page 11

“Everyone in Blue Lake has to go the Post Office to get their mail, so you get to know everyone, at least by sight,” says Marvin Samuels, “Just like at Murphy’s, you get to meet your neighbors!” Marvin moved to Blue Lake 27 years ago. Then 18 years ago, this man from West Texas met Laurie from Southern California and the rest is Blue Lake history. Laurie works with the Humboldt County Public Health Department and Marvin is with Legal Services of Northern California. Laurie is the family gardener, except for mowing the lawn, Marvin gets to do that. Laurie also practices Tai Chi daily. The two love to travel and have visited to Thailand, New Zealand, Nova Scotia, Ireland, Canada and Mexico. Marvin and Laurie hike in Trinidad, Prairie Creek, the Arcata Community Forest and along the Blue Lake levee. Oh, and they love their local Mad River Brewing Tap Room. “Murphy’s has great produce, delicious Taylor Sausage and friendly clerks,” says Laurie. “And,” Marvin adds, “they carry Mad River beer.”

their property values, and I’ve got to stand by that. And if somebody up here can say that property rights and property values are gonna be held in whole when this gets through, I’ll vote for the whole thing right now and we can walk away from here, but I don’t think anybody can do that.” —Rex Bohn “Getting all this paper and documents at one time and trying to digest it and know what’s in it and be able to look somebody in the eyes at the end of this and say, ‘This is not going to affect your property rights. This is doing what we want it to do’ — I just don’t know how I can get there with this.” —Ryan Sundberg 4. [?] “We gotta start a new plan in a year anyway.” —Rex Bohn 5. SOMEONE MIGHT SUE THE COUNTY FOR REASONS UNKNOWN “I’m worried that at the end of this it’s gonna be sued, [though we’ll] probably get sued anyways.” —Ryan Sundberg “I don’t want to make it the lawyers’ full-employment plan.” —Rex Bohn 6. THE UPDATE AND ITS SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS HAVE TOO MANY PAGES “This just is so big. I had a conversation with [former county supervisor] Jill [Duffy] this morning and asked, ‘How did this thing get this big?’ … Is there a way to pare it down to make it more understandable for me, for the general public, for people who are going to come in and get permits?” —Ryan Sundberg 7. DESPITE HOLDING MORE THAN 200 PUBLIC MEETINGS, THE COUNTY DIDN’T GIVE PEOPLE IN RURAL AREAS ENOUGH OPPORTUNITY TO COMMENT “The one thing I got out of so many meetings, there’s always somebody to get up and says, ‘You haven’t come at the citizens advisory committees.’ That pops up, and I’m just grabbing it ‘cause it’s in my notes in about three places. We heard from Mattole and Honeydew. They didn’t feel like they were included. … I don’t know what we did in Willow Creek, Orleans and the outside areas.” —Rex Bohn
8. VIRGINIA BASS’S VAGUE SENSE OF UNEASE AT FATE’S UNPREDICTABILITY “What my uncomfortableness at this point, especially when you, you know, we’re looking at the document, we have asked for so much information … but what I don’t have in there, and I have never really asked or we haven’t really been able to get to the bottom of, which really rises to my radar today is, again, the unintended consequences and my needing to have a level of confidence in moving forward.” —Virginia Bass 9. NO BIG GOVERNMENT “The level of governance — how much more bureaucracy are we throwing in on top of this?” —Rex Bohn Members of staff, along with Supervisors Mark Lovelace and Clif Clendenen, attempted to address this dizzying barrage of complaints. Lovelace said breaking the plan up and addressing its individual elements piece by piece, as Sundberg suggested, would be impractical since the elements are all interrelated. Spencer added that breaking the process up would only make it longer and more complex, since each piece would require a separate environmental impact report. Addressing concerns over litigation, she said breaking the plan up would be far worse. “Your board is always subject to more litigation the more environmental documents we do.”
Lovelace addressed what he saw as the core issue: “The hardest part isn’t the process, isn’t the policies. The hardest part are the issues. These are hard issues. And if you’re waiting for somebody to be able to say we have policies that fully protect all of the resources while also fully protecting all of the property rights, I don’t think that’s gonna happen. This is a balancing act, and it’s gonna tilt this way on one policy, that way on another policy. … And when I say that that’s what we signed on for, it’s the nature of the job is that we have to make some really tough decisions that some people are gonna like, some people aren’t gonna like. Sometimes our friends are gonna pat us on the back, sometimes they’re gonna stop returning our calls. … Nothing gets at the difficulty of our job more than trying to balance their property rights with their neighbor’s rights and with the environment and with these other issues.” Phillip Smith-Hanes, the county administrative officer, sounded a similar note. “Land use decisions are among the most controversial that a governing body gets to make, and the general plan in particular is a mountain,” he said. “And, I mean, there’s no way around it.” As the meeting’s designated end time approached, there was widespread confusion as to what exactly the trio of conservative supervisors was asking of staff. “I guess I’m a little bit lost,” Spencer
admitted. Lovelace said he hadn’t heard a request for any information that isn’t already included in the current draft. In an apparent effort to alleviate the confusion of his colleagues, he made a motion to direct staff to prepare a workshop for next week’s meeting, a sort of “Planning 101” session to discuss the process at hand. No board member would second the motion, and so the board agreed to continue the discussion next Monday, starting at 1:30 p.m. Of the various plan-scrapping justifications mentioned at the meeting, the most familiar is No. 3 above, the concern over private property rights. This is the raison d’être of a number of shadowy, development-friendly groups trying to influence the general plan update, including the Humboldt Coalition for Property Rights, Sunshine for Humboldt and the Humboldt Economic and Land Plan (HELP). The latter is run (seemingly entirely, at this point) by Sacramento lobbyist Kay Backer, who on Tuesday sent a letter to board chair Virginia Bass expressing her satisfaction with the previous night’s performance. (The letter can be read in pdf form from a link on our website.) “We were pleased to see your Board decide to step back and consider various options for moving forward with the General Plan update,” Backer writes. She also offers a familiar-sounding suggestion: “HELP, and others have long recommended going back to the Framework Plan (existing General Plan), and updating it to comply with current Federal and State laws … . If you choose this option, there is no reason why you could not evaluate the potential of adding additional elements at a later date.” Could these be marching orders? Or is it coincidence that Sundberg and Bohn’s confusion and concerns led them to this very same idea? *Footnote of very minor significance: Since the Humboldt Sentinel’s story was posted Monday night, its publisher/ producer, Charles Douglas, has ignored several requests to prove that “Thomas Bradshaw,” the story’s purported author, is a real person and not a pseudonym of his own creation. Douglas himself films most of the supes’ meetings as part of a contract between the county and Access Humboldt, where he is a media production specialist. ●

“What are ya havin’?” On the whole, it seems as if HumCo will take a Steelhead Extra Pale Ale Ale, please. High on drinkability, Mad River Brewery’s most popular ale is one of the most stocked beers in bars countywide. As one reader put it, “Steelhead is THE Humboldt beer.” Make it official. Now, Humboldt loves its brews. So it’s worth noting a change at the top as our top beers, according to our readers anyway, have flip flopped.

ray and green and glorious, Humboldt unfurls itself like a heron spreading its wings, like a 3-year-old twirling in the sunshine, like a seductive smile. Humboldt is what we make it, and we make it marvelous. We people the hills, but not too densely; we find the secret, quiet places and create the raucous ones. And when we think about Humboldt’s best, favorites come tumbling, cartwheeling, fire-dancing out: “The redwoods, coastline and rivers.” “The messy but big hearted companion animal foundation spay/neuter/kitten adoption/ thrift store. …The way the fog burns off in some places but clings to the coast in others.” “Here’s to everyone lucky or smart enough to have found their way here — see that you use your talents to make it a better place for all of us!” Along with everything in our survey, you wanted us to know about the best dragonflies, the best geology, the best veterinarians and the best landlords. You celebrated Victorians and Old Town, Arcata and Petrolia and Ferndale, and just about every place in between. So thanks, Humboldt, for sharing the love.

Great White — we devoted an entire (in retrospect, too testosterone-filled) issue to blind beer tasting (see “Beer in the Headlights”). Granted the picky palates of our beer snobs for hire were drawn most to the stouts, but they too chose Steelhead over Great White. Is there any connection there? Did we sway your vote? Maybe we’re drunk. Eh. Pour us another Steelhead. Hey, we’ll take a Great White to wash it down with too. — Andrew Goff The Breakdown: Mad River Brewery Extra Pale Ale 13.4%, Lost Coast Brewery Great White 11.1%, Lost Coast Brewery Tangerine Wheat 9.9%, Redwood Curtain Brewery Imperial Golden Ale 5.5%, Mad River Brewery Double IPA 4.3%.

We heard from the breakfast mavericks — “Ice cream.” The puritans — “Egg white on toast.” And the conditionals — “Alibi if you’re hung over, Renata’s if you’re a girl, Luke’s if you need a place to take last night’s suc-
cessful date.” But mostly, resoundingly, we heard from people who think the best place to eat in the morning is Renata’s Creperie. Maybe those cinnamon, butter, sugar, Nutella, whipped cream, berry folds of sweetness just make the eyes open to a brighter day. Or maybe the savory crepes, the ones with buckwheat in the batter and shredded spinach, chevre, prosciutto, tomatoes, avocado or bacon nestled inside, give us strength to leap the Plaza in a single bound. Maybe the gluten-free options, and the beverages that range from chai to hot chocolate to pitchers of mimosas, just make us feel warm and cuddly and inclusive because they offer a feast for almost anyone’s dietary preferences. Or it could just be that this cooking is so good, the ingredients so fresh, the menu so unabashedly self-indulgent that when you’ve gone a whole night without eating, nothing else hits the same spot. — Carrie Peyton Dahlberg The Breakdown: Renata’s 15.2%, Golden Harvest 14.9%, Big Blue Cafe 7.3%, Cafe Brio 5.1%, Los Bagels 3.3%.

Sometimes it pays to specialize. When you’re only open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., when your very name conjures up the midday meal — you’re clearly made a commitment to lunch and nothing but the lunch. So help you nom. That commitment, plus great food, locally sourced, helped send Café Nooner into first place for the best lunch in Humboldt. It’s got cozy seating inside, a couple of tables outside that catch what sun Old Town Eureka has to offer, and an eclectic menu that borrows from the Middle East and Middle America. Don’t miss the fries, in a portion big enough for two. Or the flatbreads. Or those homemade dressings that snuggle into the salads. Or just about anything on the specials board. And when you go, don’t forget that
little ginger candy. Most enthusiastic answer: Banana Hut. I want to eat pineapple spare ribs in a tub full of pineapple spare rib gravy.

Years ago, before artisan bakeries really caught on in Humboldt, a young couple installed a beautiful brick oven in a Eureka storefront and opened White Cat Bakery. Their business is long gone, but that brick oven remains — it now serves as the centerpiece to the appropriately named F Street bistro Brick & Fire, winner of a hard-fought contest for best dinner joint. The eclectic Brick & Fire menu tends toward Mediterranean — wood-fired pizzas are a specialty — but it’s also based around local ingredients with delightful surprises like a grilled Caesar salad with Parmesan panna cotta. Another favorite mentioned by readers is the “Brick Bird,” a brined game hen squashed with a brick and fire-roasted, doubling down on the business name. One reader’s praise for the “attention to detail, creative dishes, great service,” came with a small complaint: “wish they had breakfast.” It’s not a big place, so reservations are pretty much mandatory most nights, but it has made waiting for a table easy by opening a nearby sister venture, a wine bar with appetizers and/or dessert called Two Doors Down that’s, you guessed it, two doors down F Street. Brick & Fire is at 1630 F St. in Eureka;

Best Restaurant for a Vegetarian
Wildflower Cafe & Bakery beet the stuffing out of the rest of the competition here. Having never been there myself, I romained skeptical. However, after dining there last week with a few friends, lettuce say that we’re with the voters. For those of you who think a vegetarian menu is a missedsteak, I invite you to try this cute and warm Arcata café with a knowledgeable and friendly staff. Our smiley waitress, who topped off my coffee three times, swore she knew me, but I’m pretty sure I never met herbivore. Seriously though, this menu — which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner — will satisfy anyone. After devouring a
filling Reuben tofu sandwich, it quickly a curd to me, tofu is underrated. What customers told me they liked best was that Wildflower caters to special diets, substituting nearly everything on the menu for a gluten-free or soy option. The restaurant strives to offer as much organic produce as seasonally available, too. And prices won’t cost you an almond a leg, with breakfast and lunch dishes mostly under $10, and dinner somewhere around $15. And maybe best of all, Wildflower is on Humboldt time with the rest of us, serving breakfast until 1:45 p.m. — Scottie Lee Meyers The Breakdown: Wildflower Cafe 33.2%, Golden Harvest 8.8%, Japhy’s 6.2%, 3 Foods Cafe 5.6%, Tomo 2.2%.

up as someone’s favorite (along with a bunch of inexplicable votes for the band Blood Gnome). While Kyoto was a strong contender, Pho Thien Long once again took first place. As the name implies, the classic North Vietnamese rice noodle soup, pho, is at the center of the menu — it’s available with beef, chicken or seafood, all in a savory broth with fresh basil, bean sprouts, lime wedges and slices of chili pepper on the side. An educated guess says that the additional Thai menu with its generous portions of pad thai put Pho Thien Long over the top. The coconut prawns come highly reccomended. We should also mention that the same Vietnamese family has opened a sister restaurant, Pho Hoang, in Arcata. Even though it just opened, it garnered a fair number of votes. Pho Thien Long is at 615 F St., across from the Eureka Theater. It’s open daily for lunch and dinner starting at noon. — Bob Doran

Crispy crust, so thin it sags under wisps of spinach and crumples under pepperoni and jalapeño, taunting you, daring you — the fork? Or the greasy lap? That’s Paul’s Live from New York pizza, at least as dished up in Eureka, and it is among the most beloved pizza in Humboldt. Perhaps it’s the best pizza in all of Humboldt, but there’s a hint of ambiguity here, because three similarly named pizza heavens are owned by two different people. That means, poor reader, that to be absolutely certain you’ve eaten Humboldt’s best pizza, you’re going to have to try all three. All have similar menus and sell whole pizzas or vast, gooey individual slices. So take Cole Porter’s advice, and experiment! There’s Live from New York in Arcata, Paul’s Live from New York in McKinleyville and Paul’s Live from New
York in Eureka. If you wake up late enough you can do this in a day — one slice for breakfast, one for lunch and one for dinner. Most analytical answer: “Best crust? Best toppings?

Of all the beer joints, in all the towns, in all of Humboldt, voters liked The Shanty most. If you’re keeping score at home, that’s a hat trick with back-to-back-to-back wins for the Eureka dive bar with the key lime facade and iconic Martini glass neon out front. You don’t three-peat by dumb luck. A lot of walks of life do their elbow-bending at this bar, where even four-legged best friends are welcomed. You could call it the Star Wars cantina. Sud sippers appreciate the reasonable prices, the edgy art on the walls and the courtyard out back with its ping-pong table and canopy that serves as a refuge for smokers. And
all the Tin Woodmen in search of a heart need look no further than the jukebox. The Shanty has refused to change over to the popular digital jukeboxes, and patrons can suggest and bring in their own music. You’ll find everything from scatting jazz vocalists to muscle car rockabilly as you flip through the jukebox’s CD cards. Plus, come on: Who doesn’t like a place where everybody knows your name? (Yes, I know, that Cheers reference was a hackneyed party foul, for which I will gladly drink.) But it’s true. The camaraderie is so strong at The Shanty that long-time Eureka resident Pamela Foster wrote a book about it, “Bigfoot Blues,” that mostly takes place at the bar. She even kept the real name of one of the bartenders who works there. Foster says you can’t tell from the story, but she’s not the type of person who likes hanging out in bars. “But at The Shanty it’s different,” she says. “It’s just very down-home and straightforward. It’s like the Eureka I grew up in, in the ’50s and ’60s.” Clink and bottoms up to you, Shanty. — Scottie Lee Meyers The Breakdown: The Shanty 15.1%, The Speakeasy 8.7%, The Local 7.5%, The Alibi 7%, Everett’s 5.7%.

Best Coffee Roaster
For most of us, our alarm clocks only half awaken us. Consciousness isn’t fully
realized until our pupils dilate after the nose wallows in the smell of ground coffee beans wafting through the air. Last year we asked you who had the best cup of coffee, but this year we wanted to decide Humboldt’s favorite coffee roaster. The results were close, but ultimately Humboldt Bay Coffee Co. was the cream of the crop, edging out Sacred Grounds. If it wasn’t for its tokers, Humboldt might be most known for its roasters. Humboldt has at least 10 coffee roasters, and some local coffee shops say that might be more per capita than anywhere in the United States. Owners John and Yoko Hall have been breaking up coffee beans for almost 20 years, offering fair trade, organic, high end and conventional blends. The company recently opened a visitor center in Old Town Eureka, where it also does its roasting and packaging. The coffee company welcomes anyone to swing by and learn a little bit about that bean we fiend. (Did you know the beans are green before they’re roasted?) Thanks for topping us off, Humboldt Bay Coffee Co. — Scottie Lee Meyers The Breakdown: Humboldt Bay Coffee Co. 11.7%, Sacred Grounds 10.6%, Old Town Coffee & Chocolates 9.8%, Jitter Bean Coffee Co. 9.5%, Muddy Waters Coffee Co. 8.8%.

Every third Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Runeberg Lodge in Eureka (corner of Union and West Wabash) you’ll find what may well be the best breakfast bargain in the county: Six bucks will get you four Swedish pancakes, dusted with powdered sugar and crowned with a scoop of whipped cranberry butter, plus three sausage links, a little Styrofoam cup of apple sauce, a cup of OJ and a porcelain mug of coffee. But the key word in this category is “community,” and that’s the real appeal here. The lodge, which was founded as a temperance organization in the early 1900s by Swedish-speaking Finns, fills up with a bustling mix of families and seniors in their church finery, plus a growing number of breakfast fans who recognize

We need to do a little intervention here first, folks, to deal with the whiner who “voted” in this category with the question, “Are you trying to make me cry?” Hey, weepy: Get a grip! I’ve cried my way through the ciabatta at Loleta, cried my way through the apple pandowdy at Ramones, cried my way through the foothigh frosting on those Mity Nice cupcakes — and then cried inconsolably when that place closed (and cried again, hysterically, when I heard they were opening again in a new location!). I’ve cried through umpteen scrumptious baked goods at these and other bakeries up and down this county, sheer joy pumping from my tear ducts. Do you hear me complaining? No. I confess, though, that I almost called the cops the other day when I ordered the sea-salted chocolate “chip” cookie at Brio — an item called “amazing” by another voter. Chips? More like planks, layered craftily amid the soft, dense foundation. And the cookie could have made a nice hat, it was so big. I was crying so hard as I crammed it into my mouth, I couldn’t see to dial 911 to rescue me. Humboldt bakeries, all of you: Somewhere, someone is crying your praises.

Best Food on Wheels
As anyone who’s been to Portland can tell you, the mobile food phenomenon that’s sweeping urban areas has not quite caught on in Humboldt. As the voting here shows, we’re still dominated by family operated Mexican food trucks serving tacos and burritos. The closest we have to a food cart pod is a section of F Street in Arcata where you’ll find an Alma’s taco wagon, the Mediterranean Pita Grill, a hamburger truck and this year’s repeat winner, Naan of the Above, or as one reader put it, that “Indian place in Arcata with the awesome naan and the yellow tent.” The short, simple menu features “regional Indian cuisine” with an organic

Best Humboldt Cocktail When the North Coast Journal asked me to suggest a cocktail for its “Best of” issue, I thought, “Humboldt in a glass. What does that taste like?” Well, it has to taste like our fantastic local beer. It just so happens that beer cocktails were all the rage this summer at Tales of the Cocktail, the big annual booze industry extravaganza in New Orleans. A recipe first published in Imbibe magazine puts Humboldt’s hoppiest brews to good use. The hops add just the right note of bracing citrusy bitterness, and the beer gives it a little fizz. After a taste test with friends, Wendy Petty, the Eureka Theater bartender and board member who will be pouring at the North Coast Journal’s Best of Humboldt party on Friday, customized it a bit. She replaced the magazine’s suggested Cherry Heering with blackberry liqueur to honor a local fruit, and she cut the PHOTO BY WENDY PETTY
suggested two ounces of beer to one ounce to maximize the blending of flavors. Let’s call the Humboldt version: The Lost Coast Fizz 1 ¾ oz Hayman’s Old Tom Gin ½ oz blackberry liqueur ½ oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice, or the juice of about half a lemon ½ oz simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water, heated so the sugar melts) 1 oz Lost Coast Brewery IPA Fill a tumbler or a tall, skinny Collins glass with ice and set aside. Shake all ingredients except the beer over ice. Strain into the glass and top with beer. (Note: Old Tom Gin is an older style of gin that is much sweeter than a modern dry gin. I tried substituting a dry gin, but the drink totally loses its charm.) — Amy Stewart

Why do wing lovers flock to the top o’ dat hill in McKinleyville? Well, if you’re asking me, its classic hot wings sauce is the bombest to be had in the county. Its meat, the most tender.

Once again, this category drew a large number of votes with loyalties split among Wildberries, Eureka Natural Foods, Murphy’s, WinCo, Safeway and Grocery Outlet, among others (no votes for WalMart).

Why is the Co-op most popular? Well, it’s been around for going on four decades (founded in 1973), and it’s hyper-local. We’ll also repeat the assumption that the “we own it” factor plays an important role — that’s what cooperatives are all about. As one reader noted: “I’m not even a member. Probably should be because they have a great deli and wonderful organic and natural products.

I have this theory that bookstores make excellent barometers of a community’s livability, and by that measure, if you’ll pardon the mixed metaphor, Humboldt County is the tits. Here’s an anecdote: While visiting family in Santa Rosa recently, my wife went on a quest for Lionel Shriver books. She visited three different bookstores. Nada. When she got back to Humboldt County, which has less than a third of Sonoma County’s population, she headed straight to Arcata’s Northtown Books where — wouldn’t you know it? — she found three Shriver novels she’d not yet read. Check and mate, Sonoma County. As the publishing world moves toward Kindles, Nooks and iPads, Northtown’s unassumingly erudite staff handwrites thoughtful reviews on Post-It notes and sticks ’em on the “staff picks” shelf. Which is not to say they’re luddites.

Our mistake, in retrospect, is as glaring as the ballast in a thousand-watt grow light: We figured you all had inhaled enough Humboldt hints — the fertilizer ads promising “enormous buds,” the billboards touting “higher yields,” heck, the print ads in our own pages — that you’d cotton to the irony in those quotation marks. “Garden supply.” Nu-huh-hudge.

There are certain things you can count on in Humboldt County: The fog will roll in, Safeway never has enough registers open, Betty will be tending bar at Everett’s, there will be a Craigslist missed connection about a Wildberries employee, Tad will be clad in nurse’s scrubs and protesting something, and Missing Link Soul Night at Humboldt Brews will be soul’d out. Every month for almost a year now, the fellas from Missing Link Records — Matt Jackson and Adam Pokorski — have been pulling out the funkiest records from their personal crates and spinning them for hundreds of people who dance on a floor slick from spilled beer and the sweat dripping off bodies. The first two aside, every Soul Night dance party has been sold out, with tickets sometimes gone a full week before the shindig. It’s not quite as rare as Wonka’s golden ticket, but no doubt about it, Soul Night can be a tough ticket to get. Those who wait till the last second send out a slew of SOS text messages hoping friends have extras.

ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT
This hard-fought category saw around 150 different local bands that someone considered “best.” Among them: “The one I saw at this one house — a gal was playing the saw with a violin bow in a Slipknot-esque mask. Sounded like a rockabilly metal set. (There’s a lot of good bands, I just can’t name them.)” Another reader complained, “A few categories would’ve helped. How to pick between a really talented bluegrass band full of veterans and an upstart young punk trio? Can’t.” Elimination of expert campaigners St. John and The Sinners opened up the field. (The two-time winners still got several votes.) It all came down to a neck-and-neck three-way race among the festival-hopping gypsy jamgrass band Absynth Quintet, hard-working Americana rockers The Trouble, and gospel-tinged country rockers Huckleberry Flint. In the end, Huck took it by a nose. All three bands were top vote getters continued on next page

last year and all were on our short list for Friday’s Best of Humboldt party before voting began. We hired two out of three. AQ declined since the band is playing the Mateel’s Humboldt Hill Hoedown on Saturday, adding yet another fest to a summer list that included the Strawberry Music Festival, the Oregon Country Fair, the Trinity Tribal Stomp, the String Summit at Horning’s Hideout and Gaia Fest. The Trouble have had a great year too, playing just about every club in town. With Marc Jeffares and Chris Parreira continually coming up with new songs, the band keeps getting stronger. Huckleberry Flint went through a major transition a couple of summers ago, losing longtime players, adding new ones and going semi-electric in the process. Huck Flint does not work the bar circuit; in fact the band does not play many shows at all, but by all accounts, every performance is absolutely stellar. Huck’s shows at the Humboldt Folklife Festival this summer and last were both legendary, with Dustin

Best Sports Event
It’s certainly true that everyone loves a winner, and this year the Humboldt Crabs captured their second straight Far West League championship in an extra-innings thriller. Yay, Crabbies! But the appeal of a game at the Arcata Ballpark hardly depends on something as transient as wins and losses. No, you can’t help but absorb the joy of Crabs baseball when you’re sitting hip-to-hip with friends in the bleachers, a cold beer in one hand and a sauced-up hotdog in the other. Or when the players, in their crisp white uniforms, take the field to the brassy, disheveled melodies of the Crab Grass Band. Or when an infielder corrals the ball and fires it — pap! — into the first baseman’s glove, beating the base-runner by an eye-blink. Or when a foul ball rockets into the dusky sky and seems to hang there before crashing down into F Street. (Inevitably, someone will chuckle and quip, “Glad I didn’t park there.”) The joy of Crabs baseball suffuses the sweet coastal air like the glow of the stadium lights. In July, Crabs legend Ned Barsuglia passed away at age 92. He’d been following Crabs games from the very beginning. Barsuglia got involved as a board member in 1954, later becoming the team’s chief scout and recruiter and, over a 30-year stretch that began in 1965, he served as general manager. Fittingly, Barsuglia was part of this year’s inaugural class of inductees in the Crabs Hall of Fame. As officials noted on the team website, “It is because of Ned’s dedication and love for the game that we all get to experience the longest consecutive collegiate summer baseball team [in the nation].” That’s the Humboldt Crabs. — Ryan Burns The Breakdown: Crabs 45.7%, Humboldt Roller Derby 20%, Kinetic Sculpture Race 8.5%, HSU Football 2.4%, HSU Basketball 2.2%.

Last Tuesday’s KIEM-TV news was a sad day for Humboldt as weatherman Jim Bernard gave his last weather report. Bernard is what you’d have to call a North Coast institution. He’s been informing local “weather fans” about our weather patterns and helping us plan out weekends for more than two decades. Bernard provided solid continuity at what amounts to an entry level station where most on-air staff are looking to move up to a bigger market as soon as possible. A certified meteorologist, he started doing weather reports for KVIQ Channel 6 as a side job while serving as an air traffic controller for the Arcata/Eureka Airport. He was hired by KIEM in February 1996, soon after some KVIQ manager with not much sense laid him off. (That station subsequently dropped its news department.) On Tuesday’s farewell broadcast Bernard explained a mystery that’s puzzled viewers in recent months. His once assured voice had become increasingly slurred by an unknown cause. His doctor finally identified it as ataxia, a neurological disorder characterized by instability and slurred speech that

makes you sound like you’re drunk when you’re not. He said he plans to work with a foundation that helps the public understand ataxia. Bob Dylan once told us, “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows,” but that’s not totally true. Bernard’s replacement, Cecilia Reeves, started work at KIEM this week. She earned her master’s degree in geosciences from Mississippi State University earlier this year, so she’s a trained meteorologist, but Jim Bernard’s shoes will not be easy to fill. He will remain Humboldt’s best weatherman — ever.
Best Annual Event
Obviously the oysters living in Humboldt Bay didn’t vote in this category. They’d hardly call the Oyster Festival — where 100,000 or more of their fellows get smothered in sauces and spice and chewed to death each year — the best annual event. We’d hazard a guess that their best annual event is the moment they are dangled into the bay side by side and left sweetly alone to just hang there for months and months on end.
Years, even. Tide in, tide out, tide in, tide out. So lovely. Ah, well. People like to eat them, and Humboldt Bay is the No. 1 producer of oysters in California. So bring on the festival! Fact is, it’s a massive gathering of gluttonous and creative show-offs. Who can eat the most? Who can prepare them the best? So, oysters, get yourselves all tasty and prepare to meet thy maker again next continued on next page

Last year, the nonprofit Food for People, Inc., distributed 1.6 million pounds of food to Humboldt’s neediest. Until Outerspacians start parachuting cornucopias or other goodies onto our heads, Food for People likely will keep winning in this category. The 33-year-old nonprofit, which
started out closet-sized, has grown into a wide-reaching outfit with 12 programs that serve 12,000 low-income people each month in Humboldt County — which, according to California Health Interview Survey data, has more food insecurity and hunger than most counties in the state. It distributes backpacks to needy kids on Fridays after school; brown bag lunches to about 300 seniors; food during emergencies; and more. Donations come in from all directions, including tens of thousands of pounds of fresh produce from local farmers. A new program this year, the
Mobile Produce Pantry, sends a refrigerated truck stuffed with fresh fruits and veggies — mostly locally grown — all over the county so that people who live too far from a food pantry can eat well, too. — Heidi Walters

Staff pick There it is, partway up the pretty walk from the eastern end of Trinidad’s Indian Beach: a green sign, warning that one branch of the trail is for pedestrians and daylight use only; no dogs or wheel-borne travelers allowed. Head along that grassy bluff trail, owned by the city of Trinidad, and you’ll hear waves crash, gulls cry and maybe the pit-pit-pit of a covey of quail flushed from flowery shrubs. Too soon, you’ll come out in a driveway on Wagner Street — where you’ll see a forbidding No Trespassing sign. So … um … did you just trespass? Nope, not according to both the city of Trinidad and a board member of the Trinidad Coastal Land Trust, which owns an easement across that driveway that allows people to walk down to the city’s trail and the beach below. The driveway owner, John Frame, declines to comment for the record. The dueling-sign dichotomy has its roots in years of costly litigation among Frame, the city and the state of California over efforts by Frame to close off public access to the trail that runs behind
his house. The parties reached an uneasy truce in 2005, but tensions remain. “It’s a sticky, ugly and misleading situation,” says Trinidad City Manager Karen Suiker. The city regularly gets complaints about confusing signs at the easement and at the entrance to Wagner Street, which Trinidad contends is also public. So, to clarify, here’s how to find a lovely alternate walk down to Indian Beach, as long as you leave the dogs at home: Park near the Trinidad lighthouse or the corner of Ocean Avenue and Wagner Street. Walk down Wagner Street, past the “Private Drive, please Do Not Enter, Residents Only” sign. Turn into the first driveway on your right, the asphalt one beside the sign that warns in bold red and black letters: “Private Property, No Trespassing, Dogs, Turnaround.” Walk politely down the driveway along the unmarked easement — it’s there, and you’re entitled to it — through a set of blue posts and onto the city trail. Enjoy! — Carrie Peyton Dahlberg

For a professional jungle gymnast, this result was a huge upset: Eureka’s Sequoia Park?! Let’s talk about another place, first. Janes Creek Meadows Park, aka “Spinny” park, looks like a mini NASA training facility. It has elliptical pods that orbit with such force that your eyes roll back. The professional jungle gymnast in me thinks that playgrounds that constantly threaten to make kids barf up their lunch should be the gold standard.

What do you know about playgrounds, old people? You can’t even fit in the swings anymore! Good point. You probably like Sequoia Park because it offers more than just a playground: shaded gazebos, barbecue grills, a public restroom, plenty of grass and a few acres of trails that lead to a romantic duck pond. I get that. But, still, have you seen the giant rope thingy at Spinny park that looks like it was conceived at Burning Man? Also, let me just say this about the winner: Parents, have you ever thought about the fact that there is a zoo in Sequoia Park? And you know what’s in that zoo? Bears! Well, bear, anyway. What would happen if said bear broke loose and snatched little Timmy Tucker off the redwood tree stump slide? Sound far fetched? Note this headline from the Feb. 12, 1940, Humboldt Standard: “Bear Escapes Cage At Sequoia Park.” Apparently, Teddy the bear escaped his cage and scampered his way to the duck pond. He later tripped down a hill and got stuck in some mud, where zookeepers were able to recapture him. I wouldn’t make this stuff up.

“I need to take a picture of your bathroom.” It was a slow Sunday evening at The Speakeasy. After explaining further to bartender Sierra Anderson that these facilities had won our first ever Best Restroom award, she was cool with my proposition. A guy down the bar — Gregson Pullen of Connecticut, who’d just rolled into town — was curious about what I planned to do in the can. “Wanna be my model?” I asked. After I promised to buy him a beer he agreed to enter the restroom with me. After overcoming some initial paranoia over what I planned to do with these pictures — “Are you gonna make me look silly?” — he eventually heeded my direction to lean against the beautifully mural-soaked wall next to the artisan bowl-shaped sink. He was already a little drunk. “Lemme see,” he asked. And so I showed him the pictures. “That’s a good one.”

By a big, big margin, Humboldt’s very favorite river is the Trinity. Not that it’s the only river in our hearts. “The Mad has great swimming and it provides us with drinking water. It’s a hard working river,” one loyal fan wrote. “I like all rivers in Humboldt County

It is OK to dream. To dream, for instance, like one reader, who suggested the best trail in Humboldt County is “anywhere in the Alps.” Indeed we are not, in fact, obliged to remain in our coastal mountain landscape but can, in the blink of a swoony eye, drift ourselves into a wonderland where all trails lead to waterfalls, glaciers, lakes, quaint villages, ibex bounding along rocky slopes and funiculars that whisk you back to your B&B. It is also OK to dream more practically — nothing wrong with it — that the best trail in Humboldt is, in fact, as another reader noted pointedly, “the one that doesn’t go between Arcata and Eureka.” continued on page 29

But once we recover from these vapors, we have a fairly decent runner-up: the Hammond Trail. No, it’s not decent. It’s magnificent — as long as you hit the Hiller Park section on a day when the wind is not wafting trailward from the wastewater ponds. The Hammond Trail’s wonders include paved and dirt stretches, hills and flats, canopy tunnels and wideopen ocean vistas. You can be rolling on your bicycle past a ball game at the park one moment and, the next, peering between foliage at a pod of sea lions lolling alongside the mouth of the Mad River while seals cavort in the riffling waters. There’s even a pedestrians-only section, which ventures into the green, viney maw of the Widow White Creek drainage. There is no tram. Deal with it. — Heidi Walters The Breakdown: Hammond Trail 20.8%, Fern Canyon 8.5%, Headwaters Forest 6.7%, Arcata Forest 4%, Trinidad Head 3.5%. Category popularity: 28th.
Best Place to Send an Outsider
It’s almost become cliché. Every year we ask, where’s the best place to take your out-of-towners? And every year it’s the same answer: Fern Canyon. Hey, it’s good enough for Steven Spielberg’s CGI dinosaurs (“Jurassic Park II” was partially filmed at Fern Canyon in the late 1990s). But with the canyon’s 50-foot walls covered in ferns that look nearly phosphorescent in daylight, and a pebbled floor beneath a snaking creek inside a dense, moist forest that you can feel in your breath, it’s a beautiful and worthy cliché. Hiking the half-mile trail can feel like a kind of rural gymnastics as you’re forced to cross the creek by slippery wooden planks and fallen trees. The sooner you accept the fact that your socks and shoes are going to get wet, the better off you are. Trying to avoid a wetting invites disaster. Just ask my 50-something-
Best Urban Waterfall There is a spot along Turner Road, on the south edge of downtown McKinleyville, where you can stand in a light-dappled forest and hear the steady, soothing whir of traffic on Highway 101 nearby. Walk a few yards and the sound becomes suddenly brighter, closer, not as compact and forward-sounding. It’s the even more soothing whir of water cascading. Walk to the edge of the narrow country lane and you’ll see it: a short path that drops precipitously downward and, suspended among the leafy black-andgreen, a frothing whiteness. A waterfall! Right next to the Mill Creek shopping center! Why, you could soak up some nature here, feeling as if you were in the wild beyond, then amble over to watch a movie or get groceries. Amazing, really. And what’s even more amazing is the town hasn’t given it even a backward glance. The land around it has suffered as a consequence. Word gets out when you’ve got a beautiful waterfall in the neighborhood, within walking distance of a big parking lot. We’re spreading it
year-old dad who sprained an ankle trying to stay dry. You can also hang back at the trailhead by the bubbling creek and watch the elk bathing in a pond in the distance. This is all very lovely, but beware: If you’re lucky, the winding eightmile road down to the trailhead has been freshly graded. More likely, however, it will be mostly potholes. And it’s so narrow, you’ll suck it in when cars pass you going the other direction. — Scottie Lee Meyers The Breakdown: F ern Canyon 15.6%, Away/Back/ Home 9.8%, Patrick’s Point 6.8%, Avenue of the Giants 3.7%, Ferndale 2.8%.

Best Radio Station
Another repeat winner, and no surprise. KHUM’s motto, “radio without the rules,” means it’s in tune with alt.-type readers. The flagship for Lost Coast Communications’ four-station mini-media empire, at 104.3 and 104.7 FM, fancies itself a “freeform” radio station, and the music mix is eclectic as hell, just nothing too heavy. (Look elsewhere for rap and death metal.)

Best Radio DJ
The needle’s stuck. For the second year in a row, KHUM’s Mike Dronkers is Humboldt’s favorite radio DJ.
MIKE DRONKERS IN A MIDDAY DANCE PARTY? PHOTO BY ANDREW GOFF
Dronkers’ weekday midday show, “You and Meme,” features music from accapella to zydeco and commentary about life and local news, which he says he tries to deliver in a way that makes sense to normal people, not policy wonks. We have lost the companionship of DJs in this era of Internet radio. And a lot of the DJs we do hear on our dial lead us to say, “Shut up and play the music already.” But with Dronkers, we anticipate the space between songs; we revel in hearing him speak to us. Who is this man who hides behind radio’s static curtain? We did a shotgun interview with Humboldt’s favorite DJ. NCJ: You’re stuck on an island with just one album; what would it be? MD: My answer is consistently used against me. But I would take Phish’s A Live One. They’re great musicians, and they’re long songs. I mean if you’re going to be stuck on an island for seven days or seven years, you need something with some legs.

Elvis Costello, plus Meklit and Quinn, Humboldt Hills Hoedown, Shook Twins and some funny stuff By Bob Doran
t takes a certain audacity for a young Brit named Declan Patrick MacManus to take on the name of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll at the start of a music career, but Elvis Costello did just that. His audacious 1977 debut on Stiff Records, My Aim Is True, lived up to the name. It rocked, and it helped define the ’70s punky new wave aesthetic, but it also demonstrated some serious songwriting chops. The next 35 years saw Costello record 21 more albums absorbing jazz, country and soul and making it his own, even writing an opera. A few years ago Costello served as host of a TV series, Spectacle, which found him interviewing and performing with music icons including Tony Bennett, Smokey Robinson, Elton John, James Taylor and Bruce Springsteen. Elvis demonstrated that he’s right there with the best. Mr. Costello plays a solo show at HSU’s Van Duzer Theater on Wednesday, Sept. 26, your opportunity to see another icon in action. Friday, we’re hoping you’ll come to North Coast Journal’s Best Of Humboldt Party at the Eureka Theater. We have two of the best bands around, Huckleberry Flint and The Trouble, and the awesome Missing Link DJs to boot, plus other fun you can read about elsewhere in the paper.
In the interest of fairness, I’ll note that there are other shows happening Friday: The Jamaican roots reggae combo The Abyssinians will play the Red Fox with DJ Pressure. The “all-star” psychedelic jamband The Avalon Allstars is at Van Duzen Grange with Mark Karan from Ratdog, Bobby Vega from Zero, KVHW etc., Eric Levy and Alan Hertz from Garaj Mahal, KVHW, etc. Come to think of it, this is KVHW with Karan instead of Kimock. AS Presents has Tomorrows Bad Seeds from Hermosa Beach in the Depot playing Sublime-ish reggae-rock. Opening: San Diego’s Through the Roots, who add electronic beats to the reggae-rock mix. Humboldt Brews has DJ Zephyr and DJ Red’s “All Vinyl Hi-Fi Garage Rock A-Go-Go.” Red promises “all the boss-out garage, psych, surf, soul, girl groups, doo-wop, moldies and more.” It was a couple of years ago when Ethiopian-born jazz/folk singer Meklit Hadero met retro soul singer Quinn DeVeaux, leader of an Oakland band called The Blue Beat Revue. When he opened for one of her shows in San Francisco’s Mission District they closed together with a cover of Sam Cooke’s “Bring
It On Home To Me.” That led to an ongoing collaboration and a CD, Meklit & Quinn, which came out this week. The duo takes on an eclectic modern songbook beginning with an Arcade Fire cover, continuing through soulful, jazzy reworkings of MGMT, Talking Heads, Lou Reed, Stevie Wonder and Neil Young tunes (and a few originals) before concluding with the Cooke song that started it all. The theme? “It’s about home,” says DeVeaux. Meklit sees it as a statement about continuity. Let’s hope the musical partnership sees some of that. A CD release tour brings Meklit and Quinn to the Arcata Playhouse Thursday night. Check them out. If you’re in the mood for something a bit harder and darker on Thursday, tattooed metal-fusion goddess Otep Shamaya is at Nocturnum with her band, OTEP. As you might guess by their names, the openers, Butcher Babies, One Eyed Doll and locals Angel’s Cut, are along the same lines. The Cut Throat Freak Show is here to shock you Thursday afternoon at Old Growth Tattoo in Eureka with classic sideshow acts like pounding nails up noses, doing gymnastics on broken glass, hanging things from eyelids. Musical accompaniment comes from Gunsafe. Thursday is also opening night for the new Redwood Jazz Alliance season with the John Abercrombie Organ Trio in the Kate Buchanan Room. (More details on the RJA season in the calendar.) It’s a good weekend for neo-old time stringband music, starting Thursday with a rollicking show at the Jambalaya featuring Olympia’s Blackberry Bushes Stringband plus the hot local “bluegrass”-ish outfit The No Good Redwood Ramblers. Both of those bands — and many more — are part of Saturday’s all day Humboldt Hill Hoedown at the Mateel. They’ll have local and imported music on two stages, including the murder ballads of The Pine Box Boys, scumbag country by Hellbound Glory, a dead-on Johnny Cash tribute by Cash’d Out, Americana stomp-grass by Polecat, dirty roots music by Three Times Bad, trad country by The Hicktown Homeboys, and a bunch of bands you probably know: Absynth Quintet, Rooster McClintock, Compost Mountain Boys, Dirt Floor Band, Way Out West, The Raspberry Jam Band and Striped Pig String Band, who will be teaching square dancing. Add in a mechanical bull, chicken poop bingo and a cakewalk and you’ve got yerself a hoedown. Yahoo! More neo-country/folk Tuesday at the Arcata Playhouse with Coyote Grace returning with a fine new album in hand, Now Take Flight. The twangy trio is touring with Fast Rattler, a band out of Portland that includes the late great Utah Phillips’ son Brendan Phillips. Expect a mix of originals, reimaginings of trad folk classics and, of course, some of Utah’s songs.
Wednesday at the Playhouse “Best Solo Musician” Chris Parreira presents a wild alt. stringband show featuring another Portland combo, Shook Twins, with Katelyn playing guitar, Laurie looping her banjo and beatboxing, and both of them singing in sweet harmony. Niko from The Bucky Walters is doing his Cyber Camel looping thing and will probably play with the twins too. Young Caitlin Jemma opens the show. It all sounds good. There are several Saturday evening benefits: Ferndale Repertory Theater has the eversoulful bluesman Earl Thomas plus young (12-year-old) singer/songwriter Aaron O’Gara, and a soul food feast by Ferndale’s master chef Steve Sterbeck, with proceeds going to Ferndale Rep. On the classical side you have the annual fall concert benefit for the Humboldt County Breast Health Project at Calvary Lutheran Church, with pianist (and doctor) Luther Cobb, along with Pat Person, Elisabeth Harrington, Greg Granoff, The Heartbeat Chorale, and the Cindy Moyer and Friends String Quintet. Last but not least there’s “1 in 88: An Autism Awareness Event” Saturday at Far North Climbing Gym with DJ Jaymorg (from the Missing Links Crew) and DJ Gabe Pressure providing music for dancing. Some facts: 129 children are diagnosed with autism daily. Autism spectrum disorders affect one in 88 children in the United States. Proceeds from this one go to the Ernie Els Foundation for autism research. AS Presents has another Depot show Saturday with the Orgone up from L.A. for some supremely funky soul tinged with Afrobeat that should appeal to fans of The Meters or Fela. Vocalist Niki J Crawford is the bomb. Kyle “DJ Knutz” Stasse opens the show. What is hip? The horn-heavy soul funk band Tower of Power, masters of the “Oakland Stroke,” still on the road after 44 years. Those who caught Tower of Power at last year’s Blues by the Bay know the band still has it. Yes, the boys did “You’re Still a Young Man,” and yes, the now 60-something founding members still sound good. CenterArts brings TOP to the Van Duzer stage Sunday night. This coming Tuesday the Jambalaya marks the debut of Savage Henry’s C-U-Last Tuesday, a monthly stand-up comedy review planned for every last Tuesday of the month. This one features David Gborie from S.F. plus Stroy Moyd, Andrew Moore, and Humboldt’s own Josh Duke. Want more funny? The Ba-DumChh Comedy Crew is invading the Pearl Lounge Thursday night. This is your chance to see Humboldt’s “Best Comedian” Sherae O’Shaughnessy in action. (She is funny.) We haven’t asked yet, but we might convince her to tell a few jokes Friday night. She’ll be at our party. We hope you will be too.

Best Modern Jazz Series in Humboldt The new Redwood Jazz Alliance season Humboldt’s keepers of the modern jazz flame are a small circle of jazz aficionados who put together a nonprofit arts organization called the Redwood Jazz Alliance. The dedicated crew has been bringing some of the best young players and veteran jazzers to Humboldt since 2006. As the RJA explains in its mission statement, “We envision and work toward a future in which a visit to the Redwood Coast is an absolute must for top-flight jazz musicians eager to experience our unique blend of enthusiasm for the music and hospitality for those who play it.” That future is now. The new RJA season starts Thursday, Sept. 20, with a concert featuring jazz guitar legend John Abercrombie fronting an organ trio with Gary Versace on organ and Adam Nussbaum on drums. A master of post bop jazz fusion, Abercrombie attended Berklee College of Music in the ‘60s and began to make his mark starting in the early ‘70s with a band called Dreams, then with Gateway, a trio with bassist Dave Holland and drummer Jack DeJohnette. A long series of recordings for the prestigious German label ECM cemented his reputation in modern jazz. The Abercrombie Trio stops in Humboldt for an 8 p.m. show in HSU’s Kate Buchanan Room on the way to the Monterey Jazz Festival. As is traditional with RJA visits, Abercrombie will also present a free public workshop on the HSU campus, at 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21, in Music Room 131. Coming up as the RJA 2012-2013 season continues:
Chris Lightcap’s Bigmouth on Tuesday, Oct. 30, in HSU’s Fulkerson Recital Hall, with Lightcap on bass, Andrew Bishop and Tony Malaby on saxophones, Matt Mitchell, keyboards and Ches Smith on drums. Sunday, Jan. 27, RJA joins forces with CenterArts to present the stellar quintet Joe Lovano Us Five in HSU’s Van Duzer Theater. Saxophonist Lovano fronts a band with James Weidman on piano, dual drummers, Otis Brown III and Francisco Mela and none other than rising star Esperanza Spalding on bass. Friday, Feb. 22, again in Fulkerson Recital Hall, it’s Matt Wilson’s Arts & Crafts led by young drummer Wilson, who played previous RJA shows with Trio M and Be Bread. This time out he’s leading a quartet with keyboardist Gary Versace (from Abercrombie’s trio), Terell Stafford on trumpet and flugelhorn and Martin Wind on bass. Two shows scheduled for spring still have no set venue: guitarist Joel Harrison fronts a quintet called Spirit House on Thursday, April 4. Jazz vocalist Rene Marie‘s brings a piano trio, Experiment in Truth, on Thursday, April 25. Watch for additions to the season. Advance tickets for all shows are $15, $10 for students and seniors. Membership is recommended and comes with perks. Go to www.redwoodjazzalliance.org for tickets and more details. — Bob Doran

The Best Stuff Our turn! All year long the Journal gives you the where, when, what scoop on the awesome soirees other folks are trying to seduce you to and, well, we’ve decided we wanna feel pretty too! And thus, in conjunction with our super scientific Best Of Humboldt Issue, the NCJ cordially invites you to our first ever Best of Humboldt Party (we named it after the issue). It’s goin’ down Friday, Sept. 21. at the historic Eureka Theater at 8 p.m. and, keeping in line with the theme, we’re doing our damnedest to bring you our region’s top shelf stuff: the best home grown music, the best local food and the best little alt weekly newspaper readers’ poll. Who we got at this thing? Ah, yes. If you haven’t seen Huckleberry Flint in a couple years, expect a sonically different band than you previously soaked in. The former bluegrass guaranteed good time merchants have gone Newport Folk Festival on us and are focusing a little less on making your foot tap and a little more on making your spirit soar. Has your spirit soared lately? Who else? … Right. At this point in Humboldt history, pure American rockers The Trouble find themselves the local band of the moment. Gigging relentlessly over the past year, the boys have earned coveted stage time at the OysterFest and closed out this year’s Folklife Festival. How do they top that? Rumor has it they’ve recruited a horn section for our little party. Tasty. Finally, is there a hotter ticket in town than Missing Link Record’s monthly vinyl Soul Night dance parties? That was rhetorical; there is not. DJs Matt n’ Adam, the bootymotivating masterminds behind Humboldt’s best reason to sweat, will be on hand as well. So wear logical shoes. Also, we’ll be handing out awards to the winners of this year’s poll, the folks who make HumCo hum, yo. Sound like correct use of a Friday? Tickets for our Best Of Humboldt Party are $15 at the door, but if you hurry your keisters on over to Missing Link Records in Arcata or The Works in Eureka you can secure some budget $10 advanced passes (while supplies are in supply). We good? K, see you there. !!! — Andrew Goff

THE IMPOSTER. It only takes a couple of minutes for British documentarian Bart Layton’s The Imposter to make viewers feel uneasy. As the film begins, home movies and photos of a 13-year-old San Antonio, Texas, boy named Nicholas Barclay — who disappeared without a trace in 1994 — are intercut with painful snippets of conversation with his still-distraught family. Soon it all gives way to staged scenes of a runaway teen found three years after Barclay’s disappearance halfway across the globe in Linares, Spain, followed by footage of a full-grown man with a heavy accent casually describing how he perpetrated an epic theft of the boy’s identity. How could a con man succeed at such a bizarre and horrible crime? And why is he allowed to sit calmly in front of a movie camera and explain his craft while exuding an obvious sense of pride in his accomplishment? That uneasy feeling grows into fullblown dread by the time this entrancing but troubling film draws to a close. The star of the show is real-life serial imposter Frederick Bourdin, a Frenchman who reportedly assumed as many as 500 false identities since launching his unusual career while still a child. Bourdin’s life was fictionalized in a 2010 French movie called The Chameleon, which employed Bourdin as a consultant and set his story in Baton Rouge. The Imposter is another kind of film altogether. It’s less interested in identity theft than in the self-deception and complicity required of Bourdin’s victims — in this case, the Barclay family — and how people can force themselves to believe almost anything given the right set of desperate circumstances. Bourdin’s brown eyes, dyed hair, thick accent, obviously advanced age and penchant for odd clothing that hid his facial features didn’t stop the Barclays from accepting him as their blonde-haired, blue-eyed Nicholas. Bourdin also fooled Spanish police and social workers, an entire Texas community and the FBI. But there’s more to The Imposter‘s layered deceptions. In the film’s final act, events take a sharp turn that alters
the meaning of what came before and fairly justifies the seemingly inappropriate style in which the film tells its sordid tale. That style is a descendant of the early films of Errol Morris, who first blurred boundaries between narrative and documentary techniques in award-winning films like The Thin Blue Line. There are no shaky handheld shots in The Imposter. Instead, we find slick widescreen photography, re-enactments by seasoned actors and an expensive soundtrack with familiar songs by David Bowie and Cat Stevens to accentuate the film’s emotional peaks. In the end, all that gloss makes the audience feel like fellow victims of a grand deception. The Imposter demonstrates that anyone can be taken in by a skilled con artist, even one who’s only wielding a movie camera. R. 95m. — Courtesy Ken Norman, Gambit Weekly, New Orleans ROBOT & FRANK. Science fiction works best when it’s deeply rooted in character — when technology just sets the scene to emphasize the humanity in all of us. Making their feature film debuts, director Jake Schreir and writer Christopher D. Ford have nailed it with Robot & Frank, a wry, melancholy, sardonic gem of a film that steadfastly holds humanity’s ground in the face of ever-evolving gadgetry. Set sometime in the near future, Frank (the terrific Frank Langella) is a retired jewel thief suffering the onset of Alzheimer’s. When his son, who is too busy to take care of him, drops off a robot butler, Frank initially is leery of his new companion. But he warms up to the robot when it cleans his house, cooks his meals and takes him on walks. He downright loves it when he discovers that it can help him pull heists. The old man has his eye on the local sexy librarian (Susan Sarandon), so the first job he plans is breaking into the local library, which is going completely digital, to steal a valuable antique book in order to impress her. But the thrill of the heist is so great that he forgets about courting her and focuses on more burglaries. continued on next page

Movie Times continued from previous page Schreier and Ford use Frank, the library and, ironically, the robot to both embrace the future and celebrate the past. The film warns that what defines us as human beings — philosophy, romance, chivalry, spontaneity, adventure — can never be replaced by technology, no matter how well it cooks, cleans or helps you plan a robbery. In the late summer onslaught of event movie cast-offs like Premium Rush and The Expendables 2, Robot & Frank is a truly original, worthwhile, intelligent flick that is fun and thoughtful. It’ll tide you over for the next couple of months until the start of the awards season, when Hollywood starts trying again. PG13. 90m. — Courtesy Chad Dull, The Other Paper, Columbus, Ohio
THE MASTER. Cinema purists are saying that director Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest masterpiece, a sprawling drama inspired by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard and starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix, should be seen in the expansive 70mm format in which it was filmed. Sadly, it comes to Humboldt County only at the rattletrap Minor Theatre. Sigh. R. 137m. DREDD 3D. Remake of Judge Dredd, a 1995 Sly Stallone movie based on a comic book cop who acts as judge, jury and executioner in a dystopian future. R. 95m. HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET. A divorced mom (Elizabeth Shue) and her teenage daughter (Jennifer Lawrence) find a great new house to live in. Too bad the one next door has a violent history … and future? PG13. 101m. TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE. How does Clint Eastwood follow up his rambling indictment of a ghost-Obama at the Republican National Convention? With this drama about an elderly baseball scout bonding with his adult daughter (Amy Adams). PG13. 111m. END OF WATCH. From the writer of Training Day comes another gritty, violent cop thriller set in LA. This one stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena as young officers who tangle with a drug cartel. R. 109m. WALK-IN. As best I can tell, this is a New Agey, spiritual-healing film based on a free e-book about a guy who sidesteps cancer thanks to an angel who escorts his spirit into the body of a Labrador retriever. 81m. On Friday, Simon Pegg’s droll, comedic bloodbath Shaun of the Dead (2004) will skewer British culture (figuratively) and zombies (literally) at the Arcata Theatre Lounge. This hilarious and gory genre mashup brings new meaning to the Briticism
“bloody brilliant.” It’s rated R and plays at 9 p.m. Next Wednesday, Sci-Fi Pint and Pizza Night will feature a pair of Godzilla spin-offs: War of the Monsters (1966) pits a giant, fire-breathing flying turtle (Gamera) against a giant, ice-breathing reptile (Barugon). Gamera (1965) tells the big turtle’s origin story (think American atomic bomb). Buildings will be smashed and citizens will scream in terror from 6-10 p.m.
THE BOURNE LEGACY. Jeremy Renner replaces Matt Damon in the action franchise based on Robert Ludlum’s international thriller novels. PG13. 125m. THE CAMPAIGN. Doofus duo Will Ferrell and Zach Galafianakis star in this broad, lazy skewering of American politics. R. 85m. THE EXPENDABLES 2. Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Norris et alii employ steroids and explosives as they rage against the dying of the light. R. 102m. FINDING NEMO 3D. Nine years after its release, the beloved Pixar movie returns to theaters with an extra dimension, hoping to lure a new generation of fans. Get it? Fish. Lure. Groan. G. 100m. HIT AND RUN. A young couple on the lam tries to outrun a federal marshal and a band of misfits in this labor of love from Dax Shepard. R. 100m. HOPE SPRINGS. Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones play an aging couple trying to rekindle the fire in their 30-year-old marriage. PG13. 100m. LAST OUNCE OF COURAGE. Propaganda from evangelical Tea Party types, this film purports to “take a stand for faith, family and freedom.” Add the word “Christian” to those things. PG. 101m. LAWLESS. Prohibition-era tale about the moonshining Bondurant brothers features a great cast (Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce) but doesn’t hold together. R. 115m. PARANORMAN. A misunderstood boy tries to save his town from zombies in this pretty if bland stop-motion film from the makers of Coraline. PG. 93m. THE POSSESSION. Available for rent: body of young girl. Tenant must be malevolent spirit who can freak parents out by making girl convulse and puke locusts. PG13. 91m. RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION. Milla Jovovich’s fifth turn in the critically reviled, commercially boffo zombie-slaughter franchise. Mmm, brains! R. 95m. THE WORDS. A young writer (Bradley Cooper) achieves literary success by stealing the work of an old man (Jeremy Irons). PG13. 96m. —Ryan Burns l

ROGERS A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by BRUCE R. McGILLIVRAY in the Superior Court of California, County of Humboldt. THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that BRUCE R. McGILLIVRAY be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.)

A HEARING on the petition will be held on October 4, 2012 at 1:50 p.m. at the Superior Court of California, County of Humboldt, 825 Fifth Street, Eureka, in Dept. 8. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the deceased, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within four months from the date of first issuance of letters as provided in Probate Code Section 9100.
