to Istanbul, Salerno or Tel Aviv, it will have something to please. Nope, I don’t own it and I don’t work for it — but such awesome food! Great prices, too. Nan Abrams, Eureka Editor: I recently was contacted by someone doing a study of why people choose to live where they do. (She is open to hearing from other people who can contact her at email@example.com.) In light of your “Best of Humboldt” issue, I would like to share my “story,” which I told her: I live in Eureka, Calif., for a number of reasons. I love and appreciate how there is a great music/arts/culture scene! There is an abundance of beautiful nature here in Humboldt County, including magnificent redwood forests and coast. There are many people who I regard as “kindred spirits” (liberal people, activists and fellow musicians in an impressive variety of styles of music). I live here because, for me, the climate is ideal: not too hot and not too cold. I also appreciate how there is lots of access to very good organic, healthy and delicious food, including chocolate and locally roasted coffee. Finally, perhaps above all, this feels like my place in the world. Seabury Gould, Eureka
True Christians Editor: The letter about Mitt Romney, Mormons and Christians (“Missionaries, Not Troops,” Sept. 13) was on the mark in many ways. Had the writer added “Some” to the opening sentence of the third paragraph (“Christians are so hung-up with the rules that they forget that Jesus …”) I would not have felt prompted to respond. Many Christians are not hung up on the rules. I recently read a book by one such Christian, J. Neil Alexander, an Episcopal bishop headquartered in Atlanta (This Far by Grace). He talks about how he and his friends in elementary school had a vocabulary for gays that was demeaning. The intent was to hurt and exclude. The point was to put someone or some group outside the circle and to keep them at a distance. This is what happens when whole groups of people are judged and lumped together. Bishop Alexander went through a lot of life experiences to overcome divisive social conditioning in his early life. In so doing, he learned the priceless lesson that we are all brothers and sisters in Christ and that no individuals or groups

are to be kept out of our hearts. He writes that, for him, the Christian life is “about active participation in a whole web of relationships — with God, with fellow believers, with nonbelievers, with folks I like and those I don’t, and with the whole of God’s creation in all its infinite diversity.” (p. 15) This is the spirit that unifies and is much needed in our world today.

Lying Supervisors Editor: I just sent the following email to the three supervisors that claim the General Plan Update (Blog Jammin’, Sept. 20) is too difficult to understand: I’ve had a copy of the GPU for a couple of weeks now and I haven’t yet garnered the gumption to try to read it because it appears insurmountable. However, IT’S NOT MY JOB!! I did not launch a high-dollar campaign to be in your seat, claiming to be the best man for the job. As it is part of your job and you’re whining about your difficulties comprehending it, I can only reach one of a couple conclusions. Perhaps you’re not qualified for the job. Perhaps you’re just playing a game to derail the GPU process, for reasons I can only guess. Either way, that makes you a liar. I’m disappointed but not surprised. Thanks for nothing.

Freedom to Boycott By Ryan Burns
umboldt County loves its reggae. Check our calendar section this or any week for proof. And it makes sense. Reggae’s feel-good, pan-cultural message of “one love” jibes perfectly with our community’s streak of irie idealism, to say nothing of the ganja connection. But in recent years, the tumultuous social landscape in Jamaica has given birth to a more troublesome and controversial genre called dancehall. As the name suggests, dancehall music is infectious and beat-heavy. But where reggae’s message was largely a unity-focused rebellion against the slavery and oppression in Jamaica’s past, some dancehall reflects the country’s modern, conflicted attitudes about race, masculinity and sexuality. It’s often viewed as a backlash against the bourgeois utopian grandstanding of Jamaica’s political leaders, and many of the genre’s biggest stars, including Buju Banton, Bounty Killer and Capleton, have become notorious — in Jamaica and beyond — for performing songs that advocate violence against homosexuals. In Jamaica such violence is commonplace. We’ve written about this issue numerous times. Whenever local promoters and venue owners have booked one of these offending dancehall artists, perhaps unaware of their gay-bashing lyrics, they’ve encountered passionate objections from the local lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and their allies. These folks have threatened to organize boycotts of any venue that hosts a show by dancehall artists who’ve been identified as hatemongers. And those threats have proved successful: Several concerts have been canceled in recent years, leaving owners and promoters feeling bullied and prompting cries of “censorship” from disgruntled music fans (“Irie vs. Irate,” March 4, 2010). The issue has erupted again in the past two weeks. Capleton, a dancehall artist with numerous songs in his catalog calling for the murder and brutalization of gays, was scheduled to play a show at Eureka’s Red Fox Tavern later this month. Under pressure from local activists that show was canceled, but promoter Beau DeVito of Bonus Entertainment soon announced that the Capleton show would be held at a different venue to be announced the day of the performance (see Blog Jammin’, page 11).
Capleton apologists, including DeVito, offer a variety of defenses. They point to his May 2007 signing of The Reggae Compassionate Act, which declared that “there’s no space in the music community for hatred and prejudice.” However, Capleton was recorded singing gay-bashing songs later that same year. They claim that Capleton’s lyrics are metaphorical or that they haven’t been accurately translated from Jamaican patois, even though the message of these songs is plain. But their most common complaint, one that attempts to twist privilege into victimization, is that people in the LGBT community are trying to censor Capleton and thus, somehow, violating the First Amendment. This argument is simply wrong. Here’s the deal: The First Amendment protects our right to expression free from government censorship. One of the consequences of this free expression, inevitably, is conflict. Short of threatening actual violence, such conflict comes with the territory of the First Amendment. Protests and boycotts are part of the deal, too. Here’s an analogy: Say you’re at Thanksgiving dinner and you start making fart noises with your mouth — you know, to entertain people. If your host tells you to shut up and stop being a dipshit, he’s not infringing on your legal rights. If you’re never invited back, that’s not censorship. It’s a predictable consequence of your behavior. The date of the Capleton show, Oct. 11, happens to be National Coming Out Day, a celebration of people who publicly identify as gay, lesbian, transgender or bisexual. Humboldt County has a proud and vibrant LGBT community, and our county government includes that community in its non-discrimination policy. To my knowledge, no one has suggested that Capleton should be legally barred from performing here. But to many in our community, his invitation feels worse than an obnoxious fart noise at Thanksgiving dinner. When you stop to consider the violent consequences of homophobia (hate crimes against LGBT people, and those perceived to be LGBT, are more likely to result in death than any other kind of reported hate crime), the invitation feels like something much more offensive — a clueless and insensitive provocation. Threats of a boycott are a predictable consequence of that provocation. ●

Raith that the crime could have been a Many in Arcata are feeling increasingly marijuana robbery gone awry, because a under siege, Winkler said, because of the nearby greenhouse had marijuana growing proliferation of big, commercial marijuana in it and the smell had permeated the grows in their neighborhoods.
What was once a peaceable, longhaired hamlet dedicated to environmental responsibility and harmonious coexistence has become in many ways a town armed and anxious, where residents fear for their safety. “I came up here in 1972 to go to HSU and never has anything even remotely happened to me like this,” MacRaith said. “It really made me very sad about Arcata, because it’s really has been an exceptional place.” Winkler wants voters pass Measure I to drive growers out — or at very least get them to pay more taxes to offset their impacts on life in Arcata. In some neighborhoods, people feel like they are living in a war zone, he said. “There are attack dogs, all kinds of cash and guns, and they feel like they have some very hostile and dangerous neighbors,” Winkler said. “They felt like it was a safe and comfortable and friendly neighborhood, but there’s been this massive change.” Measure I would impose a 45 percent utility tax on customers who use more than six times a baseline amount established by the California Public Utilities Commission. In Arcata, the baseline works out to about 582 kilowatt hours per month in the summer for a house with electric heat, and 1,002 kwh in the winter. For a house with gas heat, the allowance works out to 360 kwh monthly in the summer and 408 in the winter, according to figures provided by the CPUC. The city points out in its election materials that the average household uses twice the baseline amount, so those taxed would have to use three times the average. “With the threshold we have, very few citizens would have this level of consumption,” Winkler said. Initially, the tax might affect 600 or so households. According to Pacific, Gas and Electric Co. spokeswoman Brittany McKannay, there are roughly 10,000 electric meters in Arcata, with slightly more than 600 rising above the Measure I threshold. That’s roughly 6 percent of metered households in the city. The measure would exempt people already getting special electric rates for medical reasons, such as needing life-support equipment, City Attorney Nancy Diamond wrote in an analysis of Measure I. No exemptions would be offered for people getting special low-income rates or for very large households. According to Diamond, the tax would generate roughly $1.2 million a year based on 2011 usage figures, although the city expects that figure to decline over time as big growers move out or change their ways.
Offsetting some of that income, Arcata would have to pay a one-time charge to PG&E, estimated at no more than $650,000, to implement the tax, which would be collected by the utility and then passed on to the city. But according to Mayor Winkler, it’s not about the money. If the measure works the way he hopes, the large tax will prove so discouraging that commercial growers will shut down or just leave. That prospect has worried some in neighboring Eureka, where Councilwoman Linda Atkins said there’s already a significant grow-house problem. Concerned that growers may relocate from Arcata to Eureka, Atkins has led efforts to get a similar tax on Eureka’s ballot in 2014. The idea has been referred to the city’s Energy Committee for analysis. By making it clear such a plan is in the works, Atkins hopes Eureka can ward off any growers who might be looking for alternative locations. In Arcata, Winkler is careful to point out that he’s not against medical marijuana. In fact, if growers stay within the legal limits for growing medical marijuana in the city, they wouldn’t break the 600 percent threshold set forth in Measure I, he said. No organized opposition has emerged to Measure I, which unlike some other proposed taxes, needs only a majority vote to pass. Instead, anonymous grumblers have posted to online forums, where they say the tax will kill the goose that lays the golden egg. Among those who have come out publicly against the measure is Mark Sailor, owner of the human-powered taxi service Kineticab, who had tried to run for City Council this year but failed to submit enough viable signatures to make the ballot. Sailor says the measure discriminates against the same growers who have helped make marijuana a massive engine for Arcata’s economy. “It’s a hey-get-the-hell-out-of-ourtown-law,” he said. “The whole thing makes me crazy.” If marijuana has brought prosperity to Arcata, Winkler expects that could still continue without huge grows that rattle peaceful neighborhoods. And for her part, MacRaith would be happy to see less of the massive flow of cash that she fears has fostered a greed-crazed culture in Arcata. “I don’t think it’s worth it,” she said. “We can find better, more creative ways to make money that can benefit a broader spectrum of people.” l

Person of Interest Named
At a Tuesday afternoon press conference, Sheriff Mike Downey named the “person of interest” who is being investigated in connection with a fatal hit-andrun as well as a homicide in Hoopa. Jason Anthony Warren, who was born in 1984 and was wanted in connection with an earlier assault, was arrested late in the afternoon on Sept. 27, the same day a crash claimed the life of HSU professor Suzanne Seemann and injured two other joggers. He is being held without the possibility of bail. Downey said no other suspects are currently being sought in the case. The Times-Standard reported that Warren had plea-bargained in an earlier assault, but then didn’t show up for his sentencing on Sept. 7. He had agreed to serve six years for assault with a deadly weapon, the newspaper said. OBITS / BY JUDY HODGSON / SEPT. 30, 2:22 P.M.
The family of the late Suzanne Seemann, who was killed Thursday while jogging with two friends, has released an obituary and notice of memorial service to be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, at Freshwater School. The obituary praised her as a woodworker, gardener, seamstress and camper who was passionate about her family, her students and the outdoors. Her husband, Hank Seemann, proposed to her at Yosemite, it said. The full obituary is on our website. CRIME / BY CARRIE PEYTON DAHLBERG / SEPT. 28, 10:22 A.M.

Prop. 98 is the law passed in 1988 to provide a minimum threshold of education funding. There are three ways to calculate it, depending on how the economy’s doing, but most of the time it’s figured by multiplying the growth in K-12 attendance by the change in per capita personal income. Eagles said the state’s been paying schools only about 78 cents on the dollar of Prop. 98 funds owed them, and then deferring as much as 30 percent of those payments, sometimes into the next fiscal year. The borrowing helps the state meet commitments to other programs on time, but it messes up schools’ budgeting from year to year. “So, on the state’s books, they’re ‘balanced,’” Eagles said. “But what it means
for my local districts is, I have less money to work with, and I have to keep more in the bank, because I’ve got to keep enough cash in order to make payroll. So it’s a double whammy on school districts. Not only do they have to cut back because they’re not getting as much total revenue from the state, they have to spend it slower, which means further reductions in their programs.” As a result, he said, Humboldt County schools have been underfunded by the state by about $20.8 million a year — which, over five years, means a cumulative shortfall of $100 million dollars. Since 2008-2009, Eagles said, Humboldt County schools overall have lost 100 teacher and 84 support staff positions.
Maybe 12 percent of those losses could be attributed to enrollment declines. But the majority of them are because of the state funding shortfall, as well as the increasing cost of doing business: Salaries go up in stepped increments each Proposition 30 Proposition 38 year, health benefits have gone up 40 • Increases personal income tax rate • Increases personal income tax rates percent in the last five years, higher on highest incomes: over $250,000 (1 on a graduated scale, from 0.4 percent gasoline prices increase transportapercent), over $300,000 (2 percent), on incomes over $7,316 up to 2.2 tion costs. over $500,000 (3 percent). percent on incomes over $2.5 million.

an average daily attendance of 35, and eliminated an adult education program that served about 300 people. “The first thing we cut was equipment, four years ago,” Richards said. “We decided not to buy new computers. We cut supplemental materials, too —workbooks. But we did get a bond passed [Measure Q] and that’s helped us bring back those new computers.” Dana Silvernale, who’s on the Northern Humboldt school board, credits grants and local bond measures as well as Richards’ management for keeping the district in relatively good shape. “But even so, at the rate things are going, our reserve funds will be depleted by 2014,” she said by phone last week. It’s a similar story for the community colleges, whose funds also are determined on a per-student basis. Colleges increase or reduce the number of course sections they can offer, depending on their annual per-student funding cap. The state has reduced community college funding by $809 million over the past three years, according to the California Community Colleges chancellor’s office. As a result, enrollment funding is now capped at $4,565 per full-time equivalent student for the 2012-13 school year. Back in 2010-11, it was $5,209. Lee Lindsey, vice president of administrative services at College of the Redwoods, says the state owes the college $5 million in cash deferrals of Prop. 98 funds. In just 2011-12, College of the Redwoods took a $1.2 million cut and lost funding for 276 students, he says. In 2009-10, the college offered 2,030 classes districtwide; in 2011-12, it offered 1,615. Among the classes cut were dance, aerobics, yoga, Pilates

and women’s self-defense. And there are longer wait lists to get into the remaining classes, with the longest for English and math. In addition, last year nine faculty members and 18 staff members took advantage of an early retirement program. Not all of those positions will be replaced, although Lindsey didn’t give a figure. “Each year we thin the soup,” Lindsey said over the phone last week. The California State University system also has been pinched — by state cash deferrals and rising costs. In the last two years, the statewide university system has lost $750 million to $1.1. billion from state cash deferrals, said Rollin Richmond, president of Humboldt State University, last week. Humboldt State’s share of that loss was about $5 million, he said. Among the impacts, maintenance has been deferred on some of the 99-year-old university’s buildings and, more disruptively, tuition was hiked 9.1 percent this fall. And although Humboldt State’s enrollment has risen some in the past couple of years, to a current 8,000 students (7,300 full-time-equivalent ones), budget cuts do depress the number of students who could attend. “We get a lot more qualified applicants than we’re able to admit,” said Richmond.
and educators don’t seem impressed with Prop. 38, even if in the case of K-12 and preschool programs it would bring in significant new cash. Some of the measure’s revenues would be used by the state to
pay down debt on education bonds — about $3 million right away specifically for community college and university infrastructure bonds; that’s about all it would do for higher education. They’re more concerned about what they’d lose if Prop. 30 loses. Which is why, without actively coming out against Prop. 38 — that could be impolitic — they seem to be focusing more of their efforts on explaining Prop. 30, the governor’s tax hike. Remaining neutral is clearly difficult. An e-mail sent to some faculty by a College of the Redwoods dean recently cautioned: “We have been advised by the Chancellor’s Office that using class time (or dismissing class early and allowing students who wish to remain) to inform students about Prop. 30 crosses the line into inappropriate political advocacy.” Even Humboldt K-12 county superintendent Garry Eagles has to restrain himself. Eagles exudes that calm, friendly, straightforward confidence one hopes for in an educator, and he seems to have endless patience when it comes to talking about the complexities of the California budget and the current education funding propositions. But he admits that, as he’s been analyzing and preparing info sheets on these measures, he petered out on his analysis of 38. No, he hasn’t typed his 87 school’s names into the Yes on 38’s site’s “benefits calculator” to see what each school supposedly would get if the measure passes. “The governor’s initiative doesn’t take

care of all of the deferrals, but it helps pay down a lot of what the state owes us,” he said. “So while school districts won’t see a lot of new money, they will get their money more on time, which means that services can begin to be restored.” It’s true there would be no “new” money from Prop. 30 — but less would be siphoned away or deferred. The revenue limit deficit — what the state owes the county school system in deferred and unpaid Prop. 98 monies — would still go up, by about $23.7 million, said Eagles. But he sees another, less direct benefit to the measure: Putting more money into the general fund — and stopping the governor’s trigger cuts — could improve a student’s life by funding social service programs. “Education does not operate in isolation,” Eagles said. “We can’t just get funded and miraculously all of a sudden these kids are going to do well. If they haven’t eaten well, if there’s alcoholism, drug issues not being addressed, a parent out of work — if all of those stressors at home aren’t dealt with, you can’t expect the child to come to school prepared to learn.” If the measure fails, the governor’s “trigger cuts” would result in a $6.95 million reduction in state funds currently budgeted for the Humboldt County K-12 system. Each district is responding to that event in different ways. The Northern Humboldt Union High School District, for example, will shorten the school year by five days, which in turn would cut teachers’ salaries by five days, said Superintendent Richards. A few districts, meanwhile, are hoping to bolster their pinched coffers with

would have to hold public hearings twice a year on how they propose to spend the money. And they’d have numerous other reporting requirements. The Yes on 38 folks have developed a benefits calculator: Users type in a school’s name to see what it would expect to get. Not all schools are in there, and it’s unclear how the figures were derived. Nonethless, it projects that McKinleyville High would get nearly $600,000 in 2013-14, over $1 million in 2017-18 and $1.4 million in 2023-24. Eureka Senior High gets $1.45 million in 2013-14, all the way up to $3.4 million in the 12th year. Garfield Elementary: $47,000 the first year to $112,000 in the last year. However, county superintendent Eagles said the layers of new bureaucracy the measure creates — from mandated new programs to what he calls heavy reporting requirements — would be hard for his rural schools to manage, especially since the measure doesn’t allow the money to be spent on administration, salary raises or operational costs. “Our school districts have cut central bureaucracy and support systems,” Eagles said. “Very few of our libraries have librarians. We don’t have level of school nurses we used to have.” And no matter how small the school district, there’s still a minimum level of operations that must be funded — and some operational costs are higher in rural areas. Prop. 38 won’t help in those areas, he said. And, the monies might not actually go where they’re intended in some cases, at least in Humboldt. The formula for determining how the 18 percent meant for low-income students is dispersed, for instance, would be based
Ballot Recommendation Summary on the poverty rate of the community the school is in, not on the poverty rate of the students in the school, Eagles said. And in Humboldt, he said, some communities are wealthier than their students. Currently, districts get to fine-tune such earmarked funds and give them to the schools that need them. Under the Munger initiative, that wouldn’t happen. “There’s very little recognition that it costs more to tend to rural schools,” Eagles said. “A nurse here might visit 22 schools to get to 2,000 kids, whereas a nurse in an urban district might have 2,000 kids in one school. … The Munger initiative is one-size-fits-all.” Now, if the base funding was restored, then the Munger initiative would make more sense, he said. “The governor wants to fund the cake,” he said. “Munger wants to fund the frosting.” If Prop. 30 passes, College of the Redwoods’ funding would increase by $222,720, said Vice President Lindsey. In addition, the state would pay the college $1 million of the $5 million it owes in late and deferred funding. The enrollment cap would increase by 49 full-time equivalent students. If it fails, College of the Redwoods’ funding cap would decrease by 346 fulltime equivalent students and its funding would be slashed by about $1.6 million. At Humboldt State University, the main thing that would happen if Prop. 30 passes is that trigger cuts as high as $5 million would be averted ($250 million for the university system overall). The systemwide 9 percent tuition hike — $249 more a semester — instituted this fall would be rescinded, and students would get refunds, said Richmond.
If the measure fails, the trigger cuts would happen. And, tuition would go up again, by 5 percent — about $150 more a semester — for undergraduates, raising the per-semester fee to $3,135. Richmond said it’s estimated that enrollment would drop by 20,000 among the 23 CSU campuses, and about 1,500 faculty and staff jobs might be cut. Humboldt State provost Bob Snyder said the university has enough one-time money to get through this school year. But it’s hard to assess what will happen next year if the trigger cuts take place. Tuition increases likely won’t offset the trigger cut — but then what the exact cut will be and how many students the university will be able to enroll is not yet known.
if he had his druthers, he’d “make education free all the way through university.” “It’s for society’s benefit,” he said. In fact, up until 1984, there was no per-unit fee to attend College of the Redwoods, said the college’s director of communications and marketing, Paul DeMark. And even now its fees are among the cheapest in the nation. But across higher education, costs have risen. Enrollments have been reduced. Tuition has soared. It’s a far cry from the state’s 1960s master plan for higher education, which guaranteed room in the two university systems for a percentage of the top high school graduates, and room for all in the community colleges. “We’re close to the point of abandoning that compact,” Richmond said. Superintendent Eagles said if someone had asked him to write a proposition to fund education, he would have made the

A Slow Trip Down the Avenue
book Telegraph Avenue By Michael Chabon Harper Michael Chabon’s new novel aims to be many things: A story of missing fathers and abandoned sons, a recollection of ’70s black pop culture, and the modern story of an indie record store fighting the corporate behemoth that would displace it. An ambitious mix of characters and themes, it would seem to be another example of the rich imagination that marked his previous novels, such as The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay and The Yiddish Policemen’s Union. Archy Stallings and Nat Jaffe are partners who own Brokeland Records in Oakland, a vinyl hangout threatened by a former NFL superstar’s plan to open a megastore that would most likely put them out of business. Their wives, Gwen Shanks and Aviva Roth-Jaffe, are also partners in a midwifing practice whose accreditation is threatened when a birth goes badly. Added to the mix is the reappearance of Archy’s abandoned teenage son Titus, who resents Archy in much the same way Archy resents his absent father Luther, a kung fu Blaxploitation star. Luther has fallen on hard times and is trying to revive his career through a blackmail scheme rooted in a murder that took place amid the black power politics of the ’70s. It’s potentially problematic for a white author like Chabon to attempt a novel where so many of the major characters are black, but generally he acquits himself well. His depiction of Nat and Archy’s friendship, and the way it’s occasionally circumscribed by race, is subtle and true. He’s particularly acute in showing Gwen navigating the mostly white medical and legal system that she finds herself in trouble with. He also has a real feel for the historical ghosts and resonances lingering in the neighborhood the record store occupies. A bigger problem is stylistic. The book is hobbled by strained, pumped up metaphors and purple description, especially in its overwritten first half (strangely, his description of music itself is vivid and precise). An early scene where Gwen chats with then-Sen. Barack Obama about her husband (the book takes place in 2004) is mawkish retroactive wish fulfillment, and has the unintended effect of pulling the reader out of the reality of the novel. Such missteps are frustrating, but by the last part of the book Chabon gets back in the groove and succeeds in ramping up the narrative tension. He has a real gift for creating vivid, flawed human beings — ultimately you do care about them — and the plot strands converge at the end in an old fashioned and satisfying way. At his best, Chabon’s a masterful storyteller, but here he falters because he doesn’t fully trust the story and its characters to carry the day. They do anyway. — Jay Aubrey-Herzog

absorb the magnificence of these arboreal giants. We did plenty of absorbing. However, like many before us, we succumbed to the siren call of the Shrine Drive-Thru Tree, made “world famous” by numerous postcards generated over the years. In my quarter-century-plus on the North Coast I had always resisted the temptation to visit a drive-through tree. My low expectations were confirmed. Even the small charge seemed excessive for the experience, but as Thomas Meagher, proprietor of nearby Riverbend Cellars later told us, it is still the biggest attraction of the area, pulling in far more than his tasting room. The road follows the main branch of the Eel River for roughly the northernmost dozen miles and the South Fork of the Eel for the remainder. If the afternoon is warm as it was for us, the South Fork offers tempting swimming holes or wading options. Through much of the fall, the low flow keeps the water warm and the current relatively safe. It is worth noting that the placid Eel is not always so benign. Signs along the avenue document high water marks of the 1964 flood, a catastrophe that completely wiped away many communities. Ginger Sarvinski, whose family operates an organic vegetable stand near Pepperwood, showed us pictures of that once vibrant village prior to December 1964. And at the former location of the town of Weott, we gazed at the pole showing the high water mark 33 feet above the roadway. Given the modest flow of late summer, it was difficult to imagine the raging torrent that inundated bustling Weott, destroying more than 50 buildings (Weott was later relocated to higher ground nearer the freeway). As we rode toward the south end of the avenue, the pungent aroma of the roadside growth of fennel accompanied us along sun-exposed stretches of highway. We passed through Miranda, and had it been a little later would have been sorely tempted to stop for lunch at The Avenue Café. Instead we continued on south and chose the pleasant outdoor seating at the Chimney Tree Grill, across from the namesake hollow redwood that once housed a gift shop. While the griddle heated up, we began with a cheesecake appetizer (something cyclists can justify). The owner, who grew up in the area, had re-opened the restaurant several years after the storied gift shop and previous café had closed. She hoped that there would be enough business to remain open through October. The Chimney Tree itself, an empty shell with a concrete floor, is kept open for visitors to walk inside. The calm and cool disposition of the avenue in the morning had changed on
the return trip. Traffic had increased. So had the heat. We peered into the Riverwood Inn near Phillipsville. Built in the 1930s, it is reputed to be the last remaining roadhouse on the avenue offering booze, food, limited accommodation, entertainment and vintage red velvet wallpaper. Diane Hawk, in her book Touring the Old Redwood Highway: Humboldt County, has reproduced a wonderful collection of vintage photos of the Riverwood Inn and countless similar venues. The Humboldt Redwoods State Park Visitor’s Center just south of Weott is worth a stop too. The center’s exhibits provide a helpful overview of the natural and human history of the area, including the fascinating story of Charles Kellogg. Kellogg’s most lasting legacy, enshrined at the center, is the Travel Log. This is a hand-hewn redwood home he mounted on the back of a 1917 Nash Quad truck. From 1917-1921, Kellogg drove his eccentric mobile home across the country four times “to awaken interest in the great redwood forests of California, and to assist in their preservation.” People like Kellogg and the Save the Redwoods League are among those we have to thank for the protection of this ancient forest. We concluded our day with a stop at the Immortal Tree, as well as one of the fresh vegetable stands along the final few miles at the north end of the avenue near Pepperwood. It was a great day. Over the next week, I found myself reflecting on our ride frequently. This may have been, in part, because every time I sat down I was reminded of the ride by my sore derriere. There had been something special about the experience. The magnificent redwoods I had expected. But perhaps what I enjoyed most was that by cycling we took our time, stopped to explore and talk with some of the people along the avenue, and relished the serendipity that unfolded. I have found myself thinking about how to incorporate a taste of the avenue the next time we are heading for San Francisco. Slow down. Look up. Maybe, like the days before 1960, allow two days for the trip. ●

Quick-Star Savory Applesauce 1 whole star anise 1 grind fresh black pepper
This is a wonderful quick accompaniment to our local Alexander Kids’ pork chops (worth the extra pennies, seriously), or a pork roast or lamb.
Place all ingredients into a heavybottomed saucepan. Add water about 2/3 up to top of contents (about ¾ to one cup). Bring to boil, then lower heat to medium, cover and simmer, stirring often, for about 15 minutes or until apples are totally soft. Remove star anise. Break up apple pieces completely with fork and serve alongside meat, blintzes or latkes. Makes about four servings.
Ingredients and Method:
2 medium/large apples, peeled, cored, sliced into 1 cm slices (the thingee does all that) and quartered ¼ cup sugar 1 teaspoon lemon juice pinch salt ¼ t. ground cardamom ¼ t. cinnamon

Apples of My Eye By Jada Calypso Brotman email@example.com
h, autumn. So soft, so gray, so indistinguishable from what passes for summer here in northern Humboldt. You southern Humboldters must feel so smug all wrapped in your golden layers of summer tan. Here in Arcata autumn is primarily evidenced not by weather changes but by fresh green produce and visitors. The highway exits are awash with aspiring trimmers in dingy neckerchiefs frantically flailing scissor-embossed cardboard signs. I personally adore this season not least because my awesome brother Max makes his annual pilgrimage to New Moon Organics Farm up in the Lotus Land of Shively to join in the orgy of harvesting squash, tomatoes, beans and apples. Desperate to find some sun and strengthen the bonds of siblinghood, I took the summer bridge recently and picked alongside the New Moon residents, munching raw sweet corn and frying sausages throughout the gorgeous sunlit afternoon. I came home with bags o’ bounty, and among the succulent highlights was a peck of wonderful juicy sweet King apples, fresh off the tree. Crisp autumn apples are such a treat. I really developed an appreciation for them in my years living in the U.K., where the brief Cox’s Orange Pippin season is heralded like the Nouveau Beaujolais, with much patriotic rhapsodizing and teary
½ t. salt, more to taste 1 t. brown sugar 1 t. vinegar (apple cider or white) fresh ground pepper optional: ½ t. red pepper flakes 1 T. butter Sploosh olive oil (1, 2 teaspoons)
(Any other Little House on the Prairie fans out there? Laura Ingalls’ husband Almanzo Wilder always ate apples and onions as a kid in upstate New York. There’s no recipe in the book, but the idea inspired this totally rad breakfast dish.) Estimate one apple and half a medium-size onion per person, more if it’s a main dish. It’s particularly well suited alongside salty brekkie meats: sausage et al. A fried egg on top doesn’t go amiss either.
Heat fats over medium high heat in cast-iron frying pan. Place apples flat side down to cover bottom. Cook undisturbed until bottoms are browning, 3-4 minutes. Turn heat to medium, turn apples over, dump onions on top. Let fry undisturbed two minutes before adding seasonings and mixing all. Cook until onions are soft, another 2-3 minutes, tossing mixture occasionally. Grub hot. Serves two.
Ingredients and Method: WWII stories. Admittedly those apples are worth it; crisp, firm, sweet, with icy white flesh and a lovely snap, they have such a short season they provoke almost hysterical over-consumption. Here in the U.S. we have decent apples available most of the year but nothing beats picking ‘em fresh and free of charge. Max does an annual cider pressing that keeps us flooded in juice the rest of the year, and our friend Willoughby is an expert at dried apples. I prefer to eat my apples fresh — I consume three or four a day this time of year — and I just love cooking with crunchy, tart-sweet fresh apples. They actually make great savory dishes — fruit and meat is a killer combination — and the King holds up to cooking particularly well. Winter apples get less firm after months of storing and can cooking too quickly to mealy mush, but with fresh apples the home cook can achieve any number of consistencies while maintaining a vibrant appley flavor unmuddied by age. Before we get to some recipes I offer some advice: If you don’t have an apple peeler/corer thingee, get one. Not only are they amusingly old-timey, they are surprisingly effective. It’s important to have your apple slices of even thickness for cooking, and the thingee really does the trick. ●

Jada’s Too Lazy To Make Pastry Dough Pie Crust: For base, buy a graham cracker crumb crust in 9 inch pie pan or make this quick one:
Ingredients and Method:
1 ½ cups finely ground graham cracker crumbs 1/3 cup white sugar 6 tablespoons melted butter pinch salt Blend and press into pan to form crust. Chill for an hour, or prebake at 375 for 7 minutes. Crumbly Toppin’ (do last minute so butter doesn’t get melty) 1 stick cold sweet butter 1/3 cup brown sugar 1/3 cup white sugar ¼ cup walnuts ½ cup flour ½ t. salt pinch nutmeg Blend all by pulsing in food processor until mixture reaches texture of very coarse sand.
Fillin’ 5 med. large apples peeled, cored, sliced into 1 cm slices and quartered ½ cup cornstarch mixed with enough cream to make a paste — work lumps out with fork. Toss apples with paste. It will dissolve as it mixes with the juice of the fruit. Add ½ cup each brown and white sugar 1 t. vanilla ½ t. salt ½ t. cinnamon, more to taste juice of one lemon Toss all thoroughly. Sift ¼ cup flour over all. Toss again. Put evenly in crust and sprinkle, dot and press crust mixture thickly over all. It’s a crumble-style, not a flat crust. Bake 40 minutes in 375 oven (preheated). Turn up heat to 425 for another 10-15 minutes to ensure topping getting crisp. Cool at least an hour. Enjoy the appley goodness.

From Big Foot to the Bible
Lush Newton and Susanna Bluhm at First Street Gallery By Jason Marak
en pink flamingos? Check. Thirty-nine large pink doughnuts? Check. Space Ghost, Batman, Wonder Woman and a dancing Big Foot? Check. This might sound like a laundry list of images from that dream you had the night you ate way too much Thai curry, but it’s not. It is a partial list of the objects and images you’ll be confronted with at Lush Newton’s new exhibition, “Bread & Butter.” If you’re in the mood for some visual stimulation this month, HSU’s First Street Gallery in Eureka is the place to be. From Newton’s Pop inspired mixed media installation and sculptures to Susanna Bluhm’s large, painterly canvases, First Street is full of things that catch the eye. Newton’s background working as a character artist for Disney and Hallmark certainly makes sense when you see her work, but it isn’t responsible for her fascination with cartoon imagery and popular culture. That’s an obsession that began long before she entered the workforce. “I’ve been drawing since I was 2 years old and heavily influenced by The Mickey Mouse Club, Hanna-Barbera and Warner Brothers [cartoons], and I used to try to fight it,” Newton said. But “weird packag-
ing, cartoons, billboards, design, all of that pop culture stuff — I can’t turn away!” Many of the materials used in Newton’s mixed media sculptures and installations are salvaged. She has an abundant source of good cardboard from area merchants and she knows where to find stashes of free wood. Newton hoards materials. The Arcata studio where she works looks like you’d expect: cluttered, colorful and full of surprises. Everywhere your eye stops, there is some sort of wonderful visual contradiction: baby shoes with rollerskate wheels, a human skull next to a small statue of Bob’s Big Boy, a delicious looking crock-pot of stew (yes, real stew) next to an industrial respirator — the studio itself is a kind of shrine to the marriage of popular culture and the fine arts. Newton’s creations bring to mind the work of other contemporary Pop artists like Takashi Murakami and Yoshitomo Nara, but Newton’s work has a decidedly more rustic feel that sets it apart. Her new exhibition promises to be a floor to ceiling experience, offering moments of familiarity quickly overtaken by the rush of the unexpected. The inspiration for Seattle-based painter Susanna Bluhm’s work couldn’t be

further from Newton’s. Many of the canvases on display in Bluhm’s exhibition, “My Heart’s a Little Fast, but Otherwise, Everything’s Fine,” are from a group of paintings inspired by the poem “The Song of Songs of Solomon” from The Old Testament. Even the titles of many of the works are drawn from the poem’s lines. While the poem served as inspiration for the series, the paintings are by no means literal representations of the poem itself. “It’s an abstract connection, but it’s a strong one,” Bluhm explained, something she kept thinking about as she worked on the imagery. Other paintings in the exhibition are from a group of work based on photos Bluhm took of Croatian islands during her travels, but also of traffic islands around her Seattle neighborhood. Bluhm, an HSU graduate who has exhibited nationally and internationally, paints landscape environments that are certainly abstract, but they also offer glimpses of recognizable forms that help pull the viewer into the scene — locating or placing the viewer within the work. This act of combining representational and abstract elements allows viewers to create personal narratives and associations. “I like having the mix because then
the stuff that people can recognize kind of makes them think that they might also be able to recognize the abstract stuff if they looked hard enough, and then it starts to make the recognizable stuff look more abstract — so I kind of like it when they inform each other like that,” said Bluhm. But perhaps the first thing you notice when looking at her paintings is color. Her palette is saturated and inviting. “I love color and I think it’s probably the most important tool that I use as a painter,” Bluhm said. “I do want people to experience some kind of pleasure in the color… a rich, rewarding experience.” ● The Lush Newton and Susanna Bluhm exhibitions will be up at First Street Gallery (422 First St. in Eureka) from Oct. 2 until Nov. 4. There will be a reception for the artists on Saturday, Oct. 6, from 6-9 pm. in conjunction with Arts Alive! In addition, Bluhm will give a slide lecture about her work the previous day, Oct. 5, at 5 p.m. in Room 102 in the Art Building at Humboldt State University.

Freedom to Love
Rufus Wainwright, Kimock, DJ Red’s 45 B-day, Shpongle, Big Gigantic, Mount Eerie and fall festivals By Bob Doran
When we caught up with neo-pop songwriter Rufus Wainwright, he was staying at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur. “They gave us this beautiful house in exchange for a concert, so my new husband and I are on our honeymoon,” he explained. (Wainwright married his longtime companion Jörn Weisbrodt in August.) At the end of this month he’s part of an all-star concert, Freedom to Love Now! in New York City, a benefit for a group working to get same-sex marriage legalized in all 50 states. “It’s an important time to state your allegiances, right before the election. In all this questioning of Obama, I have no qualms supporting him at all as a gay man. He’s really stepped up to the plate for us, both on gay marriage and ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ so I have confidence in him, for my needs anyway. So it’s important to keep the home fires — or the homo fires — burning,” said Wainwright with a laugh. What will it take to shift consciousness on gay freedom issues? “I have to say I’m impressed with how America is doing in that department … [but] you can’t expect a puritanical nation to just flip all of a sudden. This is a major national issue, something they’re always talking about on CNN or whatever. There seems to be some sort of ripple effect
going on. So, overall, I’m pretty positive about where America is right now.” While he says it does not relate to his recent marriage, the title track for his latest album is a song called Out of The Game. “Oftentimes I’ll write a song and think it’s about one thing, but I’m told otherwise. I tend to think of [the song] as being more about the music business. I think it’s about being in your late 30s and on the cusp of the next stage of life, shall we say. On the one hand you’re full of knowledge and perspective, and also with envy,” he said with a laugh. Your opportunity to hear Wainwright’s music comes Thursday when he plays solo at the Van Duzer Theatre. Guitar wizard Steve Kimock brings his liquid melody lines to Humboldt Brews Tuesday night, jamming with organist Bernie Worrell from Parliament/Funkadelic, percussionist Wally Ingram and bassist Andy Hess from Gov’t Mule. Yes, it will get funky. “You know the music sort of takes the shape of the container,” said Kimock cryptically. “So playing with Bernie, I make more use of the funk. It’s different. I’m a big reggae fan too, and Wally and Andy are into that, so we go there naturally, too.” Speaking of reggae, J-Boog, a Samoan singer
26 North Coast Journal • Thursday, Oct. 4, 2012 • northcoastjournal.com
(via Long Beach) brings his Hot Rain Band to the Arcata Theatre Lounge Thursday for a funky reggae party. Meanwhile the Capleton controversy flames on, generating way too much nastiness on the Internets. IMHO everyone needs to take it down a notch or two. Hate + hate = more hate. The venerable DJ Red celebrates his birthday at Humboldt Brews Friday night with a “Strictly 45s” dance party with “fellow 45 junkies” Missing Link Adam, Gabe Pressure, Jaymorg, King Maxwell, Mantease, Spaceman Spliff and Zephyr. Red notes, “For those who are too young to know (or too old to remember), 45s (also known as the 7-inch) are those flat, round, black objects, which, through the magic of technology, produce music when played on a turntable.” The show starts late (10:30 p.m.) since HumBrews is hosting a Humboldt Beer Week “Beer and Buffet” brew ‘n’ food pairing dinner earlier that same night. Twang time Friday at the Jambalaya with Buckskin Wallets featuring Kaleb, Steve-O and Joey from the Bucky Walters playing what they call “old-timey honky-tonk club-grass.” Drifter Killer plays psychedelic grunge that night at Central Station in McKinleyville with Macktown rockers The Hudson Hound Dogs (ex-Shay’s Rebellion). Electro/folk/pop vocalist/songwriter Shana Halligan brings silky sounds to Six Rivers Thursday. Friday, classical music fans have a tough choice. That’s opening night for the Eureka Chamber Music Series at Calvary Lutheran Church with Borealis String Quartet playing an intriguing program including Taiwanese folk songs, something by Canadian composer Michael Conway Baker and Beethoven’s “Quartet in C Major, Op. 59, No. 3.” Friday is also opening night for a new season for the Eureka Symphony, with Shakespearean music by Dvorak and Shostakovich at the Arkley Center. Fortunately, the symphony also plays Saturday evening, so one could attend both shows. Fall festivals abound. Friday’s Garberville Town Square Fiesta (4-10 p.m.) has music by The Fabulous Resinaires, Twango Macallan and SoHum Girls (taking a break from recording a new album). Smokin’ Moses will have the barbecue smokin’; there’s fun for the kids and local beer and wine for grownups. Saturday’s Hoptoberfest at Perigot Park in Blue Lake has music by Big Forgive, River Valley Mud, Speakeasy Saints and The Miracle Show and plenty of beer, with proceeds going to Blue Lake Elementary’s sports and arts programs. Also on Saturday (starting at 6 p.m.) Coastal Grove Charter School presents D.C. Dance Fest at Humboldt Brews, a field-trip fundraiser with music by young rockers UFO8 (also playing at Six Rivers Friday night) plus a performance by Redwood Coast Bellydance Troupe (the Redwood Coast Bellydance Festival is at the Arcata Community Center that day). DJ Knutz
closes, spinning discs into the wee hours. There’s also the annual Fieldbrook Fall Folk Fest all weekend at Fieldbrook Market. Sierra Rose Band kicks things off Friday with some lively stringband music. Saturday (1-9 p.m.) the lineup includes Jeff Kelley, the duo Guilty Apple, Josephine Johnson, Sam Whitlatch, The Pilot Rock Ramblers, Michael Stewart and Delta T. Sunday (1-7 p.m.) it’s Turtle, Ras Tony, Joe Garceau Trio and The Moonsong Band. World Famous has a couple of big EDM things coming this week: First, on Thursday, Shpongle brings “The Masquerade” to the Arcata Community Center. British electroshaman Simon Posford is a showman who presents his music on an amazing set with swirling lasers, projections, dancers in elaborate costumes — a full-on sensory overload for raving dancers. Phutureprimitive opens the show. Then on Wednesday, Oct. 10, it’s Big Gigantic, an electro duo out of Colorado with Dominic Lalli on sax and production and Jeremy Salken on drums and an extra-large sound. B.G. is on tour with Canadian dubsteppers Christian Srigley and Leighton James, aka Adventure Club, whose Twitter page says they are “part time lumberjacks.” The Hackensaw Boys, originally from Charlottesville, Va. are another raised-on-rock string band pumping out what they call (on a couple of records) The Old Sound of Music. A seemingly endless tour brings the boys to Humboldt Brews on Monday. Tuesday CenterArts presents another in the “Acoustic Africa” series, this time with an emphasis on women. There’s vocalist/dancer Dobet Gnahore and bassist/vocalist Manou Gallo, both from Ivory Coast (Gallo was bassist for Zap Mama) plus Kareyce Fotso from Cameroon, all of them offering modern African takes on pop, blues, funk and traditional music. Same Tuesday at the Jambalaya: Mount Eerie, the alt. lo-fi drone project of Phil Elverum (formerly known as The Microphones). Based in Anacortes, Wash., Phil operates something he calls P.W. Elverum & Sun, Ltd. producing unique LPs, singles, books, CDs, etc. (Expect a cool merch table.) He’s on tour with Bouquet from L.A. described by band member Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs (from The Finches) as a “darker-leaning pop group, proggy without being wanky, gothy without being affected.” The local psyche/noise outfit Servile Sect opens. As Election Day gets closer, Spirit Vibrations takes over the Jambalaya Wednesday, Oct. 10, for a night of “musical political comical fun” with Don Husman of In Human Creation as your host. There’s a bunch of music — Silent Giants, Gunsafe, The Plumb Uglies, Eddy Arnold Jr. and Burning Sage and Josephine Johnson for starters. And there’s an open mic for political commentary in one-minute sound bites — candidates, here’s your chance. And if you haven’t done so yet, you can register to vote at the event. ●

Bacon = Brought Home You’ve undoubtedly been horrified by the headlines. Every major news outlet knew it had a story that would provoke more American fury than a botched football call. Thus, the dreaded 2013 bacon shortage was everywhere last week, threatening to force healthier breakfasts on a populace that would probably have been OK with a few less servings. Oynk! That’s our favorite kind of dead pig! Good news, porkers! Someone actually called the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Turns out, while European pig butchers are coming up a little short on swine, there’s plenty of frozen pork for our breakfast tables. False alarm! Let’s celebrate! Conveniently, bacongate coincides with the emergence of the first ever BaconFest, taking place at Blue Lake Casino for two whole, greasy days on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 6 and 7. Baconistas will have the opportunity to sample various kinds of bacon, bacon treats, bacon appetizers, bacon desserts and bacon drinks. There will be bacon cooking classes and presentations. Or, if you’re especially
gluttonous, compete in the bacon eating contest. Yes. That. Think you’re good at makin’ bacon? Both restaurants and amateur bacon chefs can compete for “Best in Show” awards and cash prizes. And as a final insult, there will also be pig costume and impression contests. Chew on that, pigs! Do you sizzle for bacon? Baconfest runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $20. For more info, scootch on over to bluelakecasino.com. — Andrew Goff

The Humboldt County Library’s Eureka branch resumes its “Based on the Book” movie series in October. This time out it’s “Trouble Is My Business,” with four Tuesday night screenings of films based on Raymond Chandler’s crime novels featuring hard-boiled L.A. private eye Philip Marlowe. First up, Tuesday, Oct. 9: The Big Sleep, the classic Bogart/Bacall vehicle directed by Howard Hawks, based on Chandler’s first novel. The convoluted tale finds Marlowe working for a wealthy patriarch whose beautiful daughters are caught up in a web of blackmail, pornography and murder. Yours truly, Bob Doran serves as your host. Tuesday, Oct. 16, HumCo librarian Michael Logan introduces Murder, My Sweet, one of three adaptations of Chandler’s Farewell, My Lovely. Dick Powell takes the Marlowe role in Edward Dmytryk’s quintessential example of film noir, working for an ex-con fresh from prison who wants to find his long lost girlfriend (Claire Trevor). Next up, on Oct. 23, Logan hosts Lady in the Lake, an unusual adaptation of a Chandler novel directed by and starring Robert Montgomery, who chose to tell the story involving a publisher’s missing wife strictly from Marlowe’s perspective. Last but not least, it’s a relatively modern neo noir from 1973, The Long Goodbye, with Robert Altman directing and Elliott Gould starring as the gumshoe in present day Hollywood. While investigating the suicide of a friend, Marlowe delves into an underworld of drug dealing gangsters, detox centers and, as always, murder. I’m the host for this one, introducing the movie and leading a post-film discussion. All screenings take place at the Humboldt County Library, 1313 Third St., Eureka starting at 6:30 p.m. For more information go to co.humboldt.ca.us/library/branches/eureka. —Bob Doran

Chalk one up for tradition! This Saturday, Oct. 6, marks the 25th anniversary of Pastels on the Plaza. Since 1987, artists of all levels have been gathering on behalf of local business sponsors to illustrate sections of Arcata Plaza pavement to raise funds for Northcoast Children’s Services. Businesses like, oh I dunno, the North Coast Journal! So we thought we’d dig through the photo archives and share some of our sidewalk creations: Wanna scrawl out? Reserve your $100 or $200 cement canvas by filling out a registration form found at ncsheadstart.org or by calling 822-7962. Then show up at 8 a.m. and be prepared for sore knees. —Andrew Goff

JoSEph gordon-levitt and bruce willis in looper.
Gordon-Levitt meets his future as Birbiglia sleepwalks into stuff By Dev Richards
LOOPER. Rian Johnson’s image of the future is a familiar one, riddled with immense poverty and constant, thoughtless violence. In Looper, Johnson, whose previous directorial efforts include Brick and The Brothers Bloom, focuses less on the details of his futuristic world and more on
the abstract possibilities it offers. Set in Kansas (presumably because the plot required a really large field) in the year 2044, Looper is a semi-cerebral story that hinges on time travel. Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a looper, paid by the mob from the year 2072 to assassinate the men they send back to 2044. With me so

far? Good, because once you accept that premise, the rest of the plot comes easily. Loopers make a good living, with only one caveat: Eventually they will have to close their own loop by assassinating the older version of themselves. Most loopers accept this condition, pull the trigger, and start the countdown on their remaining 30 years. For Joe, it’s a bit more complicated. When Old Joe (Bruce Willis) materializes on Young Joe’s killing tarp, he takes matters into his own hands, thwarting Young Joe’s efforts and setting a general avalanche of shit into motion. While Young Joe works to track down his older self and finish his job, Old Joe is working to kill a telekinetic child who will one day take over the world. Moral dilemmas abound, and you find yourself rooting for the lesser of two evils: Young Joe. Johnson deserves points for creativity, but Looper could have been so much more. I was longing for something to keep me up all night, akin to Inception or Pi. Time travel plots can open up so many doors, but Johnson purposely sidesteps these opportunities. The moment Willis proclaims, “I don’t want to talk about time travel,” you realize the film is only going to dive to a certain depth. It takes the wind out of your nerd-sails. A great deal of effort was put forth by the effects department and by GordonLevitt to ensure that Willis can pass for Gordon-Levitt’s future self. Their cadences and mannerisms are the same, as are the bridges of their noses and the density of their brows. Despite the attention given to these sorts of minute details, Looper is still full of little holes. They have less to do with continuity than with believability. It’s impossible to go into too much depth about these flaws without slipping into dangerous spoiler territory. Looper has so much potential and is truly entertaining; but Johnson, whose previous movies were much smaller in scale, may have been out of his depth here. R. 118m. SLEEPWALK WITH ME. I’ve expounded on the dangers of adaptations before; they’re tricky and almost always end up as a severely abridged version of the original story. Sleepwalk With Me, written by Mike Birbiglia and co-directed by Birbiglia and Seth Barrish, is an adaptation of a different sort, though. Birbiglia’s usual medium is the stage, or at least the microphone. You may be familiar with his work from This American Life. Maybe you own one or more of his stand-up albums. Or maybe you have no idea who he is. Regardless, there will undoubtedly be something in Sleepwalk that appeals to you. It’s a simple story about a man with
an REM behavior disorder, the girl who loves him and the family that drives him crazy. Based on the spoken-word story of the same name, Sleepwalk is a painful and hilarious true story about Birbiglia’s experiences with somnambulance, and the steps he took toward becoming a stand-up comedian. There are no unexpected dramatic twists or turns; there’s hardly even a rise and fall. It truly is a simple story, though this simplicity is in no way limiting. Birbiglia’s forte is using his awkward charisma to give you just a glimpse of his life, those fractured, human pieces that make up the whole. Filling the dual roles of key player and narrator, Birbiglia plays a pseudonymshrouded version of himself, Matt Pandamiglio. Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under, Wanderlust) is Abby, the girl who loves him in spite of his many, many faults. Their eight-year relationship has no apparent direction, and Abby has grown restless waiting for Matt to take the next steps (marriage, kids, not being a bartender, etc.). The combined tension from his relationship, his career and his overbearing family becomes tangible for Matt in the form of sleepwalking. Matt’s particular brand of sleepwalking is intense, categorized as REM behavior disorder. Essentially, if he dreams it, he does it. Running from a jackal, winning the Dust Buster Olympics, eating a pillow made of pizza — you name it, he acts it out. The bouts of sleepwalking become increasingly more dangerous (and admittedly more hilarious). These sleepwalking scenes are, by far, the most entertaining aspect of the film. Sure, it’s wrong to laugh at someone else’s pain and impending danger, but there is a pizza pillow. The rest of the film may have floundered had it not been for the supporting cast, which includes Louden Wainwright III, Marc Maron and Carol Kane. As Birbiglia’s freshman work as a director, Sleepwalk With Me exceeded my expectations, which bodes well for any future film projects Birbiglia may have in the works. Not Rated. 90m. —Dev Richards
TAKEN 2. Liam Neeson returns as the retired CIA agent whose family keeps getting targeted by hostage-takers. This time, he and his wife get nabbed, prompting a succession of quick-cut action sequences and tense music. PG13. 91m. PITCH PERFECT. Yes, the trailers look like Glee Goes to College, and the catchphrase (“Get pitch slapped”) is a groaner. But the cast is led by the great Anna Kendrick, and the reviews have been solid. Your call. PG13. 112m.
FRANKENWEENIE. Tim Burton revisits one of his early short films in this stopmotion (think Corpse Bride) feature about a boy who uses zippy-zappy science to bring his beloved dog back from the dead. PG. 87m. Friday is Ocean Night at the Arcata Theatre Lounge, and this month’s edition features award-winning shorts from the Beneath the Waves Film Festival. Sci-Fi Pint and Pizza Night falls on a Saturday, for the first time in patchy memory, featuring George Romero’s landmark zombie classic Night of the Living Dead (1968) and a Mexican sci-fi/horror called The Robot vs. the Aztec Mummy (1958). Sounds like a fair fight. And on Sunday evening at 6, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) will fight crime with help from their ninja master, a giant rat named Splinter.
THE BOURNE LEGACY. Jeremy Renner replaces Matt Damon in the action franchise based on Robert Ludlum’s international thriller novels. PG13. 125m. DREDD 3D. In a dystopian future, badass cops act as judge, jury and executioner. This stylized remake has brio and action to boot. R. 95m. END OF WATCH. Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña star as hero beat cops of the LAPD who get targeted by the Mexican drug cartel. R. 109m. FINDING NEMO 3D. Pixar’s beloved fish flick returns with an extra dimension, hoping to lure new fans. Get it? Lure? G. 100m. HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA. Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler) runs a posh, monsters-only hotel, catering to the likes of Frankenstein (Kevin James) and the Mummy (CeeLo Greene). PG. 91m. LAWLESS. Prohibition-era tale of about the moonshining Bondurant brothers features a great cast (Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce) but doesn’t hold together. R. 115m. THE MASTER. Director Paul Thomas Anderson’s challenging and ambitious drama about a charismatic cult leader (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and the troubled Naval veteran he entices (Joaquin Phoenix). R. 137m. RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION. Milla Jovovich’s fifth turn in the critically reviled, commercially boffo zombie-slaughter franchise. Mmm, brains! R. 95m. TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE. Clint Eastwood stars as an elderly baseball scout bonding with his adult daughter (Amy Adams). PG13. 111m. WON’T BACK DOWN. Two moms (Viola Davis and Maggie Gyllenhaal) look to change a failing inner-city school while embracing genre clichés. PG. 121m. —Ryan Burns

Tanoaks, Tannins and Tanning
Photo By Barry evans
By Barry Evans
hat makes an oak tree an oak? Acorns, right? Almost right. The tanbark oak, or simply tanoak (Lithocarpus densiflora) is the single North American exception to the rule. Its acorn is more like the spiny husk of a chestnut, plus it has different leaves, bark, flowers and wood from true oaks, genus Quercus. As the name suggests, tanoak bark secretes excellent tannin, the stuff that turns animal hide into leather — which is why, a century ago, it was harvested to near extinction on the West Coast. Southern Humboldt County was once home to dense stands of tanoak, most of which were cut down in the 20 years from 1902 to 1922. That’s when the Pacific Oak Extract Works operated in Briceland, six miles west of Redway. (Another plant operated in the Mattole Valley.) Each year, from the end of May to the middle of July, when the tanoak sap flows most vigorously, dozens of crews descended on the surrounding forests. After stripping the bark from the base of the tree, the men would fell it and immediately peel the remaining bark, because any delay would allow the sap to set, making peeling impossible. Sadly, that flowing sap made the rest of the tree useless, since sudden exposure to air causes the saturated hardwood to crack. Pack mules hauled the bark to the Briceland extraction plant, where the slabs were first aged for a year before being ground up and “percolated” in a series of large vats filled with warm water to extract the tannin. Workers then packed the resulting molasses-like liquid in 50-gallon barrels for shipment from Shelter Cove to San Francisco Bay, and thence upriver to the
Wagner Leather Co. in Stockton. In the tanning process, tannin, or tannic acid, converts animal hide into leather by binding to the skin’s natural collagen proteins, which both softens the hide and stabilizes it by making it bacteria-resistant. Because tanoak tannin also contains gallic and acetic acids, it was particularly prized for working heavy leathers such as saddles and boot soles. Nowadays, synthetic tannins have largely replaced vegetable tannins. It’s about time: archeologists believe that Sumerians were treating hides with vegetable tannins nearly 5,000 years ago. Today, a far more insidious peril threatens California’s remaining tanoaks. Phytophthora ramorum, better known as Sudden Oak Death, was first reported in Mill Valley in 1995. It is a rapidly spreading fungus-like organism whose wind-blown spores land on wet leaves, infecting the tree and usually causing its death within a year. You can see one of Humboldt’s few remaining stands of old-growth tanoak at Peavine Ridge, high up on the steep north slope of Bull Creek in Humboldt Redwoods State Park. To get there, take the Honeydew exit off 101 and drive five miles west on the Mattole Road. Park at Albee Creek campground and walk the lovely five-mile (2,000-feet elevation gain) Thornton Trail up through stands of Douglas fir and Pacific madrone to Peavine Ridge trail. You’ll find the tanoak grove about half a mile east of the junction, mercifully unharmed by humans and (touch wood!) by the fungus. l Barry Evans (barryevans9@yahoo. com) has yet to find a convincing explanation of the phrase “Hell for leather.” Thanks to local author-historian Jerry Rhode for help with this column.

Request foR PRoPosals Westside Community Improvement Association is Requesting Proposals from programs interested in operating at the Jefferson Site. Proposals are sought from Charter schools – We have 6 classrooms available for primary occupancy by a charter school and 4 potentially shared classrooms. We are also seeking proposals from organizations and programs that offer recreation, art, performing arts, cultural enrichment, after school programs, nursery schools, health, nutrition, physical fitness, literacy, and other community resources. The Jefferson Campus is proposed to house a Charter School in the South Building and by fall of 2014 (if not sooner) all space in the South building will be dedicated to that purpose. We are seeking proposals from Charter Schools that will recruit students from our community and offer free quality education to the children of the Westside, elementary schools preferred. The North Building will house a Community Recreation and Cultural Enrichment Center. Programs in the North Building are expected to share space in order to maximize the benefit to the community and minimize the cost to operate programs here. We are also proposing the development or renovation of 2 more spaces outside the North Building. There will also be a public park available for outdoor recreation programs, a neighborhood events center with a stage, and a permitted kitchen. Programs are expected to offer free opportunities to children and families that live within ½ a mile of the Jefferson Project. We welcome proposals from organizations serving all ages. The proposed timeline for completion of the improvements at the facility is September 2014, but parts of the facility will be ready much sooner. Please include financials with proposals and mail by October 15th, 2012 to: Westside Community Improvement Association PO Box 5315 Eureka, CA 95502 Questions can be directed to Heidi Benzonelli firstname.lastname@example.org (707) 498-5764 10/4, 10/11/2012 (12-284)

all grow at Mycality Mushrooms under the watchful eye of Mike Egan. Mike started growing mushrooms ten years ago and is currently farming in Fairhaven. There are petri dishes, seeds, autoclaves for sanitized sawdust and huge climate-controlled rooms in the world of cultivated fungus. His organic debris is composted and available to local gardeners. Mike says, “I wanted to be involved in agriculture and have found myself a niche with exotic mushrooms. I am a fortunate transplant of twenty years in Humboldt County.” All this work still leaves time for Mike and Jake to go surfing at the north jetty. Jake perpetually carries a stick to drop at your feet so that anyone can enjoy the great opportunity to play a game of fetch. Mike’s dried and fresh cultivated mushrooms are available at restaurants and, of course, Murphy’s Markets.
