Sorry, Greens …
… Or Not
Editor: While it is a sad statement, right now a vote for Jill Stein of the Green Party is a mistake, unless the goal is to give Mr. Romney the election (Mailbox, Oct. 25). I would dearly like to vote closer to my heart and soul … but this election can’t afford it. I hold out hope that someday things will correct (I almost said “right”) themselves. I hope elections can’t be bought, that more choices of who might represent us are available and that “equality for all” isn’t a distant memory. I am very disappointed with Obama; the hopes he raised us to were exciting, but the reality is, he is the only choice in this very serious game of chess. The Romney/Ryan combination is a devastation. Closer to home, Bonino’s slogan is that “he walks the talk:” Whose talk is he walking? Linda Atkins has always been upfront, talking for more than the mere few. I trust her intentions and her actions. Kathy Travers, Eureka
Editor: Margy Emerson expressed her worry, and that of many progressives, that voting for Jill Stein would help Romney/Ryan get elected. In a swing state, that would be a legitimate concern. But we do not live in a swing state. California polls show Obama holding a steady 15 percent lead over Romney. Even if Jill Stein garners 5 percent of the vote, Obama will carry the entire electoral college votes for the state. Noam Chomsky did say that, in a swing state, he would vote for Obama. He also said that since he lives in the state of Massachusetts, he will most likely vote for Jill. Like Massachusetts, California is a safe state. Romney may appear more dangerous than Obama, but, like Bush, his policies would undoubtedly encounter fierce resistance from the people. Obama, on the other hand, has been allowed free rein to spy on American citizens and to sign indefinite detention without trial into law. He has killed hundreds of civilians with drone strikes and maintains a secret kill list. He has allowed mountaintop removal,
Cartoon by joel mielke
hydrofracking and offshore drilling in the Arctic, and fully intends to complete the XL pipeline. He recently revealed his plan to lower taxes on corporations and cut social services. Obama may be the “lesser of two evils,” but he is also clearly the most effective. Frederick Douglas said, “Power concedes nothing without a demand.” But a demand is nothing without teeth. Every vote for Jill Stein puts teeth in your demand. It is a declaration of independence from corporate rule and a rejection of the austerity measures proposed by both Obama and Romney. Every vote for Jill is
a demand for a Green New Deal, for 25 million living wage jobs, for clean energy, for prosperity. There is power in your vote. Use it. Dana Silvernale, Blue Lake
Play Fair, Supes! Editor: Thank you for pointing out that the county is paying over $700,000 in wages and benefits for workers to stay at home (“Don’t Bother Coming In,” Oct. 25), as supervisors continue “denying raises to
minimum-wage workers.” IHSS home health care workers are the only county employees who are still paid minimum wage, and our Board of Supervisors has once again denied giving these workers an increase of even one dime. IHSS workers receive $8 an hour with no benefits, no health care and no expenses, not even for gas to and from their clients’ homes. Meanwhile, these “paid-not-towork employees” are receiving upwards of $25,000 a year in benefits in addition to their salaries. In my opinion this is Humboldt County’s greatest shame. But it is also a loss of what would be a financial gain for our local economy. For every dollar paid to IHSS workers the county contributes 17 cents. The remaining 83 cents is paid for by state and federal programs already in place, making it a net gain to our local economy of 83 cents for every dollar paid. By helping low income people remain in their own homes, in familiar surroundings, the IHSS program is keeping many clients out of nursing homes, thereby saving millions of taxpayer dollars in MediCal. Of course the Board of Supervisors should act out of basic humanity and raise
the wages of these employees, immediately and significantly. The fact that it would be a boost to the economy should only make this choice easier. Contact the Board of Supervisors at 707 476-2396 and demand they do the decent and financially prudent thing by raising the stalwart IHSS home health care workers who work so hard, for so little, and do so much good for so many. Richard Salzman, Arcata
What’s 35 About? Editor: You did your readers a great service by acquainting those of them unfamiliar with “Project Censored” (Oct. 18) with an important source of news, instead of the usual mass media drivel including the births of two-headed chickens and the latest activities of meaningless celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Charlie Sheen. The Ballot Recommendation Summary (Oct. 18 and page 9) was another important inclusion. Basically just seeing what the Republicans, Chamber of Commerce and Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association continued on next page

are for is good enough for me to be against, and vice versa. However I was interested to see that one ballot measure that appeared to be a no-brainer (Prop. 35 — Human Trafficking) is opposed by the California Council of Churches. WTF? So, I looked them up online and was surprised to find out that they have actually analyzed this bogus ballot measure critically and concluded it’s just another “feel good” piece of legislation that basically makes something that’s already illegal “more illegal” without actually doing anything constructive, aside from helping out the prison guards union and privatized prisons by enabling the state to send a lot more low-level pimps and lower-echelon criminals to prison minus any beneficial consequences of actually curbing the problem it’s supposed to solve. Of course it’s supported by both the Democrats and Republicans, Allah forbid them from saying or doing anything that might be misinterpreted — such as opposing a law with harsher sentences on human trafficking, because it’s obviously such a swell idea no matter how badly flawed the measure actually is and no one really has the time to read any objections to it in between watching the World Series and the latest ET episodes about Lindsay Lohan and Justin Bieber. Also, www.ballotpedia.org is a great source of info about ballot measures in California (and many other states). Keep up the good work! Roy Henock, Eureka
Don’t Trust Monsanto Editor: Thank you for your article, “The $38 Million Label” (Oct. 11). Why would six chemical companies and their allies be willing to spend that kind of money to prevent one simple line on an ingredient label? Why are they so intent on concealment? What kind of public policy is it that withholds pertinent information from the consumer? On the basis of those questions alone, I’m persuaded to vote for Prop. 37. But there’s more. When I read the opposition’s arguments, I’m struck by their purported concern over lawsuits against small mom and pop grocers. My understanding is that the entity guilty of mislabeling would be the responsible party, not the grocer who simply puts the product on the shelf. Further, Prop. 37 provides an out if a product has

not been knowingly or intentionally genetically engineered. Ironically Monsanto, itself, seems to love lawsuits — provided it’s the plaintiff. Monsanto has been the biggest bully on the block when it comes to suing and bankrupting small farmers. And get this. If, for example, wind-born pollen from a neighboring GE crop contaminates your field, Monsanto’s licensing agreement absolves it and your neighbor from responsibility, while you can be (and most certainly will be) sued for patent infringement! I’m not making this up; it’s that crazy. So serious is the situation that a group of 60 family farmers, seed businesses and organic agricultural organizations filed a preemptive lawsuit against Monsanto, (Organic Seed Growers & Trade Association, et al. v. Monsanto) seeking protection from accusations of patent infringement should contamination occur. They lost the first round but the case is under appeal. It seems to me we have a system that is out of control and we, the people, need to stand up and be heard. We need to know what is in our food. Yes on 37. Kay Schaser, Eureka
Unfair to Bonino Editor: Eda Bachrach’s recent hysterical rant against Eureka City Council candidate
Joe Bonino (Mailbox, Oct. 11) was beyond unfair. Accusing Bonino of being a liar and his supporter Rex Bohn as a borderline criminal based in part on the similarity of their campaign signs borders on pathological!! I support Joe Bonino for Eureka City Council on the merits. Slimy, unfounded attacks by Bonino’s opponents confirm that choice again. Just saying. Michael K. Robinson, Eureka
Go, Growers! Editor: Mr. Faulk’s article, “The Grow Tax” (Oct. 4), shed a very dim light (pardon the pun) on the grow room taxation. There are two major flaws in this proposal that will very likely cost the Arcata taxpayer serious money: First is the fact that the $650,000 cost of this scheme must be paid up front and may never be recovered by this ludicrous idea. There has been given no analysis of what happens if the majority of large indoor grows simply scale down to 400 watt lights, and cut the numbers? Secondly, as an owner of an all-electric car who pays P&GE $400 to $700 a month, and who made his purchase decision based on the massive savings offered by the State of California incentives which PG&E allows on electricity purchase, you are about to pass a law which is diametrically opposed to state incentives now in operation. As a member of the very passionate group of “first adopters” of this technology, I can assure you that this measure will be an instant lawsuit against the City of Arcata. Get ready to pay up, Arcata!! Not to belabor the point, but, Arcata city management believing that the city will make money off of this follows a pattern of serious mistakes it has recently made including: • The three “Homeless houses” still on O Street; • The closing of the oldest community recycling center in the history of the United States and; • Allowing our Community Development Corporation to go bankrupt. If the city wants to tamp down the trouble caused by grow houses, it should simply enforce the laws now in place. The fee charged by the Building Department is $1,500 for each busted house. Unless Gallegos is intending to let them simply “Cruz” on out of here, then let Chief Chapman do his job. Robert Silvers, Arcata
Schools Held Hostage Editor: Gov. Brown knows that to pass his tax proposal he can hold education as hostage (“Propping up Schools,” Oct. 4). What I would like to read is what cuts our legislators have made in order to respond to our weak economy. This is a government that cannot balance a budget without spending more than it brings in through taxation. So the only choice is to ask for more money and the sure way to do that is threaten to cut education. What about all the positions that were added when the economy was growing? Were they eliminated as they would be in the business world? Maybe I’m wrong and just missed that article somewhere. Mike Slavin, Arcata Editor: Proposition 30 — “Gov. Brown’s baby” in Heidi Walters’ parlance in her Oct. 4 cover article, “Propping up Schools” — has been much on my mind since. As a public school teacher in Eureka for 25 years, I have been very pleased to spend my last two Saturdays walking neighborhoods downtown, east of 101, talking with residents about it and another momentous ballot measure of a different stripe, and hearing from so many their clear recognition of how important public education is to their children’s, and our nation’s, future prosperity and democracy. I sincerely hope your readers will add their own up and down votes this coming Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 6 on two initiatives on this year’s ballot which will impact the future of public education, working people, and the bright future for California we all want. Voting yes on Prop. 30 will prevent a further $6 billion in cuts to schools and colleges. (That would be on top of the $20 billion they’ve already been cut over the last four years.) Voting no on Prop. 32 will put a stop to a fraudulent measure which aims to silence the voices of teachers and other public employees while creating special exemptions that give even more power to Super PACs, corporate special interests, and the billionaires backing it.

Have you seen a targeted political ad?
Who’s Watching You?
How companies have assembled political profiles for millions of Internet users ProPublica

credit reporting company. Datalogix, a company that 201 works with Facebook to track users’ buying patterns, is also involved. (Marketing materials and comment from the seven companies are also online.) CampaignGrid and a few, similar firms have been profiled for their innovative approaches. Yet the scale of the targeting and the number of companies involved has received little notice. Few of the companies involved in the targeting talk about it publicly. But CampaignGrid, which works with Republicans, and a similar, Democratic firm, Precision Network, told ProPublica they have political information on 150 million American Internet users, or roughly 80 percent of the nation’s registered voters. The information — stripped of your name or address — is connected to your computer via a cookie. Targeting firms say replacing your name with an ID number keeps the process anonymous and protects users’ privacy. But privacy experts say that assembling information about Internet users’ political behavior can be problematic even if voters’ names aren’t attached. “A lot of people would consider their political identity more private than lots of information,” said William McGeveran, a data privacy expert at the University of Minnesota Law School. “We make more rules about medical privacy. We make more rules about financial privacy. So if you think private political beliefs are in that category, maybe you’re concerned about having them treated like your favorite brand of toothpaste.” Google has stayed away from this kind of targeting. It classifies political beliefs as “sensitive personal information,” in the same category as medical information and religious beliefs. But other big players have embraced the “political cookie,” as one company branded it.
f you’re a registered voter and surf the web, one of the sites you visit has almost certainly placed a tiny piece of data on your computer flagging your political preferences. That piece of data, called a cookie, marks you as a Democrat or Republican, when you last voted, and what contributions you’ve made. It also can include factors like your estimated income, what you do for a living and what you’ve bought at the local mall. Across the country, companies are using cookies to tailor the political ads you see online. One of the firms is CampaignGrid, which boasted in a recent slideshow, “Internet Users are No Longer Anonymous.” The slideshow includes an image of the famous New Yorker cartoon from 1993: “On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.” Next to it, CampaignGrid lists what it can now know about an Internet user: “Lives in Pennsylvania’s 13th Congressional District, 19002 zip code, Registered primary voting Republican, High net worth household, Age 50-54, Teenagers in the home, Technology professional, Interested in politics, Shopping for a car, Planning a vacation in Puerto Rico.” The slideshow was online until last week, when the company removed it after we asked for comment. (A link to full slideshow is online.) Rich Masterson, CampaignGrid’s chairman, wrote in an email that the slideshow was posted in error: “It was an unapproved version of a sales deck that was posted by an intern who no longer works for the company.” CampaignGrid does indeed collect 18 different “attributes” for every voter, Masterson told ProPublica, including age, gender, political donations and more. Campaigns use this data to tailor the online ads you see. Online targeting has taken off this campaign season. ProPublica has identified seven companies that advertise the ability to help campaigns target specific voters online. Among them is Experian, the

Details Emerge about Gruesome Shark Attack
Humboldt Surfrider posted to its Facebook page an update about today’s shark attack on the North Jetty: A witness and friend says he saw the victim bob underwater, then his board popped up and he screamed for help. The witness says the bite went from the victim’s breast bone to his navel. The Times-Standard also provided an update, quoting Blue Lake resident Jason Gabriel, who reportedly drove the victim from the beach into Eureka, where he was picked up by emergency responders. Gabriel gave the T-S a harrowing account of the victim’s injuries: “It punctured all the way through. There were guts and meat hanging,” Gabriel said, adding that the victim appeared to be in shock. “He was going ‘Oh my God, oh my God.’” The victim has yet to be identified. The T-S reports that he is in “fair condition” at St. Joseph Hospital. Shark attacks and encounters have been happening more frequently than normal, according to a story last week in the Christian Science Monitor. Last Tuesday a surfer was killed in a great white attack in Santa Barbara County. Another woman was attacked Saturday in Maui. ● RAILROAD, TRANSPORTATION / BY RYAN BURNS / OCT. 30, 12:44 P.M.
7 Revelations from Arkley
Eureka kazillionaire Rob Arkley made some surprising revelations yesterday in a radio interview on KINS radio. Here are the biggest ones: 1) What Marina Center? “Frankly it’s not my priority right now given the east-west rail,” he says. 2) Arkley’s company — not the City of Eureka — is the lead agency on the eastwest rail project. “It looks like Security National is gonna be — we’ve got the community support and the governmental support. And we’re probably going to be hiring an investment banker ourselves who will be negotiating,” he says. 3) Eureka can stop trying to garner support and financing for a feasibility study.

be negotiating with on the entire project,” he says before offering a hint. “Someone who operates ports and rails — think about the biggest one in the world.” He continues, “We’re going to be giving them an exclusive on the project from our perspective for a year while they do their own studies and try to reverse-engineer users.” 4) Arkley could pay for the railroad himself if he wanted to. “We [Security National] made the determination that our 300 acres is enough to justify the entire rail,” he says. “Our 300-acre Fairhaven site is enough to justify the entire rail expenditure.” 5) The only potential export product he’ll identify is lumber. Canada has a lock on container shipping, so that’s out, Arkley says. Host Brian Papstein asks the billion-dollar question: What will be shipped on these hypothetical trains? “Oh, we’ll export lumber,” Arkley answers. Never mind that the industry is a fraction of what it used to be, or that the county’s own economic development coordinator says, “They’re happy with trucks.” Arkley predicts that lumber exports will somehow exceed the volumes shipped south in the industry’s heyday, in part by opening up a “market for central valley mills.” Confusingly he adds, “Same thing on import.” 6) The proposed route has changed. Rather than ending up in Alton, Arkley now says, “We’re talking about going around Korbel and ending up in Anderson [in] an hour and a half, out South Fork Mountain.” 7) Mark Lovelace and “his ilk” are obstructing the train. Papstein asks, “Why hasn’t it happened yet?” apparently referring to permitting, financing, engineering and completing the largest infrastructure project the county has seen in decades. “I think because the Harbor District wants to study it,” Arkley answers. Also, County Supervisor “Mark Lovelace doesn’t want it, and a few of his minority ilk.” The Harbor District has expressed no intention to study the east-west rail project, specifically. Its commissioners are currently doing fact-finding on multiple rail connection possibilities, including the North Coast Railroad Authority’s defunct north-south line. Arkley doesn’t explain how this is hindering the project. “I guess the Harbor District wants to do their own study and I don’t get that at all,” he says. “I mean, why? We own the land. We’re going to get the rail done through a contract. If the Harbor District wants to develop its port, why don’t they let us lead?” He laughs. “And then they can see

what they can do.” Lovelace has not publicly opposed the project but has expressed skepticism about its feasibility. The Board of Supervisors has heard two items related to the east-west rail project — a proposal to draft a resolution of support and a proposal to join the UpState RailConnect Committee. Both were approved. ● ACTIVISM, MUSIC, PROTEST / BY RYAN BURNS / OCT. 29, 1:54 P.M.
Ocean Grove to Host More Murder Music
Undaunted by public outrage stirred up by the furtive Capleton concert earlier this month, the Ocean Grove Lodge in Trinidad has booked another dancehall performer whose lyrics explicitly call for the murder and brutalization of gays. This time, in a concert scheduled for Election Day, the performer is Beenie Man, a Jamaican dancehall icon with a history of making reluctant, passiveaggressive quasi-apologies to international consumers, only to backpedal and backslide when he’s in hotbeds of homophobia such as Jamaica and Uganda. As with the Capleton concert, next week’s Beenie Man show was arranged by local promoter Beau DeVito of Bonus Man Entertainment. Local gay rights activist group Queer Humboldt is planning a “peaceful, loving protest” to be held outside the Ocean Grove Lodge on the night of the concert. A call to Ocean Grove Lodge Monday morning was not immediately returned. ● TRANSPORTATION / BY RYAN BURNS / OCT. 29 10:51 A.M.

County Appoints Hamblin Planning and Building Director
Kevin Hamblin, who was Eureka’s community development director for 25 years before taking a planning job in Del Norte County, will be Humboldt County’s next director of planning and building, the county said in a press release. The
full release is on our website. It omits the fact that Hamblin got the job on a split vote. The Times-Standard reported that supervisors voted 3-2 to hire him, with Clif Clendenen and Mark Lovelace dissenting. They apparently aren’t saying why. ● ENVIRONMENT, MARIJUANA, MEDIA / BY RYAN BURNS / OCT. 26, 11:32 A.M.
Two news stories this week, the first from the Sacramento Bee and a follow-up from Mother Jones, examine the environmental impacts of large-scale outdoor marijuana grow operations, which have exploded over the rural hills of Northern California in recent years. Both stories point out how the conflict between state and federal laws has effectively stymied attempts to regulate medical marijuana, allowing outdoor growers to divert streams illegally and use herbicides, pesticides and rodenticides. MoJo quotes several locals, including Humboldt County Supervisor Mark Lovelace: “This is not about marijuana, good or bad. This is just about the reality that this one industry, due to prohibition, has been essentially granted immunity from regulation,” Lovelace says. “That’s the unintended consequence of federal prohibition.” The Bee, meanwhile, points to the sad irony of our eco-groovy community turning a blind eye to the environmental degradation of the marijuana industry, which a local Fish and Game scientist compares to the timber industry in the days of Charles Hurwitz and Maxxam. ● ACTIVISM, ARTS, INDIAN COUNTRY, KLAMATH RIVER / BY HEIDI WALTERS / OCT. 26, 10:28 A.M.

They started in the daytime and painted into the night, light flickering from a campfire merging with spotlights to show their handiwork. And the scene emerging on the large canvas was no surprise: an expression, oft repeated, of the keenest desire of many in our region, including members of local tribes, to see the Klamath River undammed. The Oct. 6 mural-painting event, in Orleans at the Amayav Market, was hosted by the Klamath Justice Coalition as part of the WaterWrites Mural Project, an effort of the Estria Foundation, a Bay Area public arts organization. The Klamath mural is one of a series being painted around the world, says Nancy Hernandez with the foundation: “The Klamath mural will be linked with mural projects completed in LA, Oakland, Honolulu, The Philippines, Palestine, and El Salvador.” ●

Banished The Hoopa Valley Tribe kicks out a convicted drug dealer By Scottie Lee Meyers
rthur Jones has calmed down. His long, black ponytail salted with gray has stopped swaying. There are now thoughtful pauses between his words. He’s been talking for an hour with the fervor of one wrongfully accused. Standing at the rickety gate of his front porch, he stares out onto the Hoopa Valley. The expanse tranquilizes him. The sky, an opaque pale blue like pulverized turquoise, hangs above an earthly expanse of Douglas fir bluffs that look like the tops of giant broccoli florets. Just out of sight snakes the Trinity River, an artery that has been sustaining life for centuries. The 90,000 acre Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation, 50 miles inland from the Pacific, is the largest Indian reservation in California. About 3,000 people call Hoopa their home, 95 percent of whom are Hupa Indians. (The people themselves are
“Hupa,” while the valley is “Hoopa”). The tribe is one of very few that was never removed off ancestral grounds. Earth. Water. Sky. The Hupa were never forced to say goodbye. “This is the center of the world for Hupa people,” says Jones, whom everybody call Arty. “This is where the creator put us. We’re as much a part of here as that tree over there, or that river over there.” With his dark eyes still fixated on the sweep of land, the 58-year-old Hupa tribal member vows to never leave. It’s his home forever, he says. But he doesn’t have a choice. Jones was convicted of felony drug charges late last year in Humboldt County Superior Court. Last week, the Hoopa Valley Tribe banished Jones through Title 5, its controversial exclusion ordinance. He’s been ordered to leave the reservation and to never come back. If he won’t go volun-

tarily, tribal police will swing by, slap cold handcuffs on his wrists and escort him over the boundary. Where to? It doesn’t matter. Just not here. Hoopa Valley Tribal Chairman Leonard Masten Jr. promised to clean up the valley’s drug problem — particularly methamphetamine, a drug that plagues reservations across the country — when he successfully campaigned for the position in 2009. He’s already kicked out one non-tribal resident since being elected, and has enforced strict pre-employment drug testing for all tribal employees. Forcing people to pee in a cup and exiling drug dealers has made him both a loved and
loathed figure in Hoopa. Jones has some unusual supporters for a notorious and self-acknowledged drug dealer. Even Masten’s predecessor, Lyle Marshall, is staunchly against the banishment. Jones contends that Masten and the tribe illegally altered the exclusion rules, and says the chairman selectively punished him because he’s an outspoken political foe. For more than a year now, Masten and Jones have been battling in court, a battle that now will continue through Jones’ appeal. Both men have lobbed vicious insults and accused each other of crimes and dubious tactics. It’s a strange turn for two guys who grew up

together, drank beers and dropped acid together in high school, and whose kids played together. When Jones came home from the military as a young man, one of the first guys he visited was Masten.
Two things stick out
when Arthur Jones reflects on that September day in 2011 when he was arrested in Hoopa: The blistering heat and the impression it may have left on Jesus, his 2-year-old son. Jones was driving home after picking up Jesus from preschool when Humboldt County Drug Task Force agents pulled him over for speeding. After searching his flashy silver 2011 Chevy Camaro, agents found 17 grams of meth packaged in plastic baggies, two pounds of marijuana, and more than $2,000 in cash. The district attorney’s office would later issue a search warrant for his house near the Hoopa rodeo grounds, where agents seized an additional five ounces of meth, almost six pounds of processed marijuana, a 9mm pistol, $41,000 in cash, and an additional $151,000 from a Coast Central Credit Union bank account. It was one of the county’s most lucrative busts in 2011. Jones was cuffed and stuffed in the back of a squad car as officers finished searching his Camaro. He demanded that officers allow a family member take Jesus out of the heat and away from the scene. Jones suddenly started having chest pains and struggled to breathe. He passed out and was taken to Mad River Hospital for treatment. After a quick recovery, he was booked into jail on six charges, including intent to sell drugs, possession of a firearm and child cruelty. He was out on bail the next day. Jones hired Eureka attorney Greg Rael to represent him in Humboldt’s criminal
court. He pleaded guilty in February and was convicted of two felonies, possessing a controlled substance and possessing it with intent to sell. A probation report outlined Jones’ life story: how all four of his siblings died before turning 21, how his military service left him a disabled veteran, how he struggled with substance abuse, how he became a wrestler and wrestling coach, and how dedicated he was to his 10 children and 19 grandchildren. And then there were the letters of support. There were more than 30 of them. They came from librarians, teachers, drug abuse counselors, restaurant owners, a former tribal chairman, current tribal council members and retired federal employees, among others. (There were also an unknown number of opposition letters, but the Journal was unable to get copies before the court sealed his probation documents, which by law happens 60 days after sentencing.) One of the letters came from Tim Kyle, a Hoopa tribal member who was working for the tribe’s AmeriCorps program at the time and has since left for a higher paying job off the reservation. “Arthur is trustworthy and reliable; I believe he has more positive than negative to contribute to the community,” he wrote of Jones. Because the letters were public for a couple of months, anyone could read them, including Masten. “When I wrote the personal reference letter it seemed to cause a problem with the tribe for some reason,” Kyle said. “People start picking sides and all that bullshit that comes with it. Kind of strong arm tactics stuff.” Kyle said Masten called his boss and told her that the tribe does not condone continued on next page

continued from previous page the letters, and that he might have to retract it down the line. But Kyle insists that he wrote on his own time and he’s not going to let anyone pick his friends. Like many others on the reservation, Kyle feels the ordinance should be used for molesters and violent criminals, not drug offenders and “all the other pieces of shit out there.” Masten repudiates Kyle’s characterization of the “strong arm” maneuver. “I didn’t put pressure on anybody. We don’t see those letters until after he was in the court system and being dealt with.” The military service and the character reference letters might have helped, but what ultimately saved Jones were California’s overcrowded prisons. Under the state’s new realignment laws, felony drug possession no longer makes criminals eligible for state prison. And even though he has previous felony charges for possession of a controlled substance and assault, Jones was sentenced to three years of supervised probation, 400 hours of community service, and forced to forfeit $100,000 of the seized funds. He got back close to another $100,000, and went home to Hoopa. Masten called the letters of support “disgusting.” He didn’t much like the “slap on the wrist” sentencing either. “How are we supposed to clean up our community when this is the sort of sentencing that is handed down?” he told the Two Rivers Tribune earlier this year. Later, Masten

said in his interview with the Journal, that he has put in an enormous amount of time with the drug task force and the sheriff’s office to coordinate efforts to catch drug dealers, and he feels frustrated state courts won’t do more. Next time, he said, he’ll urge federal courts to prosecute Hoopa-based dealers. The way Masten saw it, Jones did plead guilty to dealing and selling drugs. And so began the showdown in Hoopa Tribal Court.
At least 90 tribes
currently have exclusion codes in their governing ordinances, according to the National Indian Law Library. Before Europeans arrived, most disputes were settled through payment of one sort or another, said Marlon Sherman, a Native
Renewable Energy Systems Consciencious Affordable Clean
American studies professor at Humboldt State University. “Local North Coast tribes are especially famous for having been able to mediate disputes and settle them relatively amicably through the giving or exchange of goods, such as ceremonial items or canoes.” Banishment was more severe than other forms of punishment, he said, as it separated the person from all contact with his or her community. “Family and community were as essential to life in those days as food and water. Banishment was a punishment worse than death.” Modern exclusion ordinances may be a reaction to restrictive federal laws that prevent tribes from sentencing miscreants to substantive jail time, according to Sherman. Federal authorities did not believe tribes were competent to handle their own judicial affairs, he said, and many tribes did not have the funds to build and manage jails. While tribes in some states can impose relatively short jail terms, Hoopa does not have its own jail and has opted not to go that route. One tool it does have, though, is banishment, more formally called exclusion. continued on page 16

Exclusion is a milder punishment than disenrollment, which actually strips a person of his or her tribal membership. Disenrollment has become increasingly common in tribes with large casino wealth, and those who are ousted lose their share of the pot. By contrast, a tribal member excluded from Hoopa can still share in government aid, legal settlements and other benefits offered to native people. He just can’t live there. Jones is the first tribal Arthur Jones says that the tribal chairman is selectively punishing him for being a political rival. member to be excluded Photo by Scottie Lee Meyers during Masten’s tenure, but Masten kicked out a non-member in 2009, soon after he and so far it doesn’t seem to be aimed at “I don’t understand Eureka and the people was elected chairman.

Music and Politics
An EPIC party, Abstract Rude, Joni’s birthday and music for election night By Bob Doran
verything in life is political. You have your office politics, sexual politics, environmental politics, food politics, local, national, international and — particularly right now — straight-ahead electoral politics. How does music fit in? As we head toward Tuesday’s big election, we’ll take a look. The eco-political Environmental Protection Information Center, aka EPIC, celebrates its 35th anniversary Friday night with a dinner and dance concert at the Mateel. The epic event starts at 6 p.m. with cocktails, a meal of gourmet Indian food and speeches honoring enviro-hero Rick Klein, founder of Ancient Forest International. Then at 9 p.m., it’s music time with the Canadian global fusion band, Delhi 2 Dublin, whose name sort of explains what the band does: combine Celtic fiddle with sitar, tabla and a touch of electronics. (Very danceable.) Incidentally, if you just want to hear the music, you can skip dinner (and pay less). Proceeds support EPIC’s mission, “to ensure the national forests, state parks, privateindustrial forests and rivers in Northwest California are managed to maximize their benefits for conservation,” which, of course, involves a lot of politics. Two sisters, Leah and Chloe, currently based in New Orleans, form the folky, Ani DiFranco-ish Rising Appalachia, singing in harmony in the service of various ecopolitical issues. “Music is the tool with which we wield political prowess,” says
Leah in a note of the duo’s webpage. “We are building community and tackling social injustice through melody.” Hear what they have to say Friday at the Arcata Playhouse. The rapper Abstract Rude came out of the scene around the Good Life Café in Los Angeles in the 1990s. He’s currently on the road keeping hip hop alive by hosting “four element community showcases” like the one Friday at the Ink People Annex, an all ages benefit for the MARZ Project (cohosted by Kyle “DJ Knutz” Stasse). Ab will do a short set and help judge four competitions, one for each element: graffiti art, beat-making (DJing), b-boy dancing and MCing (rapping). Express yourself! Make a statement, political or otherwise. Saturday night DJ Knutz takes his turntables to the Ocean Grove. His monthly funk vinyl parties there are usually on full moon nights, but this time things did not line up right, so this one’s just “for the funk of it.” Joining him: Funky T-Rex, Zephyr, Truth 1, Spaceman Spliff, Jaymorg and Mantease. Congo Cafe will be cooking up African food on the back porch. (Nothing overtly political.) Saturday at Arcata Presbyterian Church the Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir presents its annual Harvest Concert. Now in its 20th season, the choir got its start during the social/political turmoil surrounding riots in LA following the Rodney King verdict. Is singing gospel music a political act? In this case it is (and it’s supremely uplifting).
Also on Saturday night, the Va Va Voom Burlesque Vixens present a special Dia De Los Muertos performance at Nocturnum with special guest DJ Itchie Fingaz. The post-Halloween theme means costumes are encouraged (there’s a contest). Some of the ladies will be made up like skeletons and there will also be a Muertos altar if you want to honor dead loved ones. The political part: It’s a benefit for Six Rivers Planned Parenthood (and a reminder that women’s health care, abortion rights and contraception have become political hot potatoes of late). Wednesday, Nov. 7, at the Arcata Playhouse a collection of local folkies including Jan Bramlett, Joanne Rand, Morgan Corviday, Josephine Johnson, Andrea Zvaleko and Sarah Torres celebrate the 69th birthday of Joni Mitchell by performing a bunch of her songs. Political? When Joni sang about paving paradise to put up a parking lot or bombers turning into butterflies, it most certainly was political. Not so political: Local funkadelic/rock/ hip hop combo Acufunkture hosts a CD release party Thursday at the Jambalaya. Funk it up. Passion presents Hammond B-3 organ jammer Melvin Seals with JGB at Arcata Theatre Lounge Saturday. Seals is a selfproclaimed “keeper of the flame” for the soul excursions of the late great Jerry Garcia. Sunday, neo-bluegrass band The Infamous Stringdusters stop by Humboldt Brews on a tour in support of a new “high country music” release, Silver Sky. It’s what you might call jammy bluegrass, or as the band puts it on its Facebook page, “not your granddaddy’s bluegrass — unless your granddaddy was Jerry Garcia.” More stringy music Monday at HumBrews: Vince Herman‘s Colorado-based band Great American Taxi playing “Americana without borders” along with S.F. alt. bluegrass boys Poor Man’s Whiskey on a joint “left coast tour.” The so-called “Porno Stars World Tour” that hits Nocturnum Friday doesn’t have anything to do with the adult film industry. Headliners Kool Keith and Blowfly represent two generations of twisted rap with overt sexual content. “Kool” Keith Thornton came out of the Bronx rap crew Ultramagnetic MCs in the 1980s and went solo as Dr. Octagon in the 1990s; at this point he’s back to Kool Keith. His surreal raps often draw on sexual imagery — “pornocore” in Keith’s parlance. You could call Clarence “Blowfly” Reid the godfather of pornocore. He got his start in the 1960s as a soul singer but soon switched to novelty “party” records that took popular soul songs and changed the lyrics to make them sexually explicit. That’s still the core of his act. Now 73, he delivers his blue
material wearing a mask and a spangled cape. Local support for Friday’s show comes from alt. boy band Eureka Garbage Company. Confident supporters of the labelGMO initiative Prop. 37 are throwing a “Victory Party” Tuesday (election night) at Humboldt Brews with music by an ecogroovy songwriter known as The Human Revolution, who is on a California Clean Food Celebration Tour. Chicago’s jazzy alt. rock trio The Sea and Cake plays that Tuesday at the Jambalaya. The band’s music is not at all political, so that would be an escape from election madness. Also on Tuesday night, Jamaica’s selfproclaimed “King of Dancehall” Beenie Man plays at the Ocean Grove, apparently the only local venue not deterred by the local gay activist group Queer Humboldt, which tried in vain to stop the recent Capleton show there. In May of this year Beenie Man took to YouTube to offer what’s described elsewhere in this paper as a “reluctant, passive-aggressive quasi-apology” for his past musical sins. What exactly did he say? “I respect each and every human being, regardless of which race or creed, regardless of which religious belief you believe in, and regardless of which sexual preference you are, including gays and lesbian people.” It’s easy to dismiss his statement as disingenuous — he’s made it clear that he said it because he’s had too many concerts canceled, particularly in Europe. Boycotts are hurting him financially. It was a calculated risk in his homeland: Jamaica did not respond well to his statement. Beenie’s performance at the major festival Reggae Sunsplash was booed; he is under attack as a sellout by his peers in the dancehall community. It didn’t get the same attention here, but in July Jamaican reggae/dancehall singer Diana King proclaimed on her blog in all caps: “YES!!! I AM A LESBIAN.” In a heartfelt note explaining why she came out she wrote, “The harsh reality [is] that people like me are persecuted, beaten, jailed, raped and murdered everyday just for being who they are or just even being suspected of it.” That’s why the local gay community is protesting. Beenie wants to be forgiven, but he can’t erase his history — some will never forgive him. The mere fact that he said anything showing “respect” for gays and lesbians is at least a small step forward. That said, Jamaica still has a long way to go. Now if we could just get Diana to come to Humboldt. … ●

Murphy’s salutes Kel and her success!
Kel Karges and son, Micaiah Montalbin Photo by Keri Messina
“Murphy’s is where I started out. My favorite job was running
the outdoor BBQ with Andy (the meat department manager),” says Kel. She attended Arcata High and HSU. During a short hospitalization at Mad River Hospital, the nurses convinced her that nursing was the way to go. Kel changed her career, went back to school and received her nursing degree from the College of the Redwoods. Kel says, “It took seven years. A long time of co-parenting my son, working parttime and playing softball.” She has come full circle now and is back at Mad River Community Hospital, as an RN this time, and still playing softball. Micaiah is an athlete, too. He loves wrestling, BMX bikes and he just won his first triathlon. Kel, who still shops at Murphy’s says, “I bought and love a new Ukiah wine from Murphy’s called Zinzilladon’t be put off by the label- it’s great!!!”

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: MOLLY IN A SWIM SUIT BY JOYCE JONTE MOLLY BY MIRA EAGLE MOLLY BY RACHEL SCHLEUTER IN SEARCH OF THE TRUTH BY JOYCE JONTE
Crossing the Line from Model to Muse
“The Molly Show” at C Street Hall Gallery By Jason Marak
olly Ritter likes being looked at. She is a six-foot-tall, vivacious redhead with a striking figure; it is thoroughly unsurprising that she has become a sought after model. But for the local artists who have been lucky enough to work with her, Ritter is much more than just another pretty face. For many, she has become an important part of their creative process. In honor of this local muse, the C Street Hall Gallery has put together “The Molly Show,” an exhibition of drawings and paintings, all of Ritter, by Humboldt County figurative artists.
Local painters Rachel and Stock Schlueter are the co-directors of the 208 C Street Hall Gallery in Eureka. Rachel came up with the idea to put together the exhibition during a conversation with Joyce Jonté, another well-known local painter and Ritter fan. “It was just kind of spontaneous. Molly’s birthday is coming up … and I thought, let’s celebrate Molly!” Rachel said. “Not to mention,” Stock laughed, “she’s our daughter-in-law!” Family connections aside, it is clear from the group of artists in “The Molly Show” that regard for Ritter is far reaching. There is a great deal more to modeling
has made her a hot commodity for local figure drawing groups and artists. Jonté is very conscious of this interaction with Ritter. “Every artist really responds to the model’s energy in a life drawing session,” she said. “There’s a definite connection — there’s a magic there. Sometimes when I’m drawing her I feel like she’s just putting herself onto the paper — it’s almost effortless.” Despite the fact that Ritter is an experienced artist herself, she prefers being part of the creative process from the other side of the canvas. “It’s really empowering because you’re not just a body, you’re a personality too. You’re a spirit, and the artist is putting all of that in,” Ritter said. “I put so much more into it and they take so much more from me than just the way I look. It’s been extremely rewarding.” There is one other key aspect of Ritter’s personality that likely has a great deal to do with her enthusiasm and success as a model. “I like being looked at, and I kind of always have,” Ritter admitted. “I’m not shy about it. A lot of people get really self-conscious but I’m not. I just take it as than walking to the center of the room a compliment when people look at me.” and disrobing. “It takes amazing stamina Ritter is excited about the show and and presence and intelligence to be a has become comfortable with her role as good model,” explained Jonté, who has “muse.” She was initially a bit embarrassed worked with Ritter extensively. A good at the prospect of an entire exhibition model needs to be able to keep things devoted to her until she realized that, in interesting whether the pose is for 20 seca sense, it really wasn’t. “Everybody paints onds or 20 minutes. Stock Schlueter likens themselves,” Ritter said. “It’s me, but it’s it to “acting for a still camera.” really them.” The model needs physical stamina “The Molly Show” will be up at C Street to hold difficult poses for long Hall Gallery (208 C Street in Eureka) stretches of time.

TISHA SLOAN, ALISSA BARTHEL AND NATHAN EMMONS IN DUSTY AND THE BIG BAD WORLD. COURTESY OF REDWOOD CURTAIN.
It’s Not Easy Reliving Bush
Redwood Curtain’s cautionary tale, marriage equality play at HSU By William S. Kowinski email@example.com
usty and the Big Bad World, now on stage at Redwood Curtain, is loosely based on real events: the 2005 decision by PBS — under pressure from the Bush administration — not to air a segment of a children’s program (Postcards From Buster) dealing with lesbian parents. Playwright Cusi Cram, who worked for an associated program (Arthur) at the time, engages in some score-settling, puts words of one actual participant in another’s mouth and inaccurately impugns the motive of the PBS president (who admittedly is an old acquaintance of mine). But on the whole, Cram uses the situation to create an independent, thoughtful and lively work of theatre that entertains ideas as well as the audience. First we meet 11-year-old Lizzie Goldberg-Jones (played by Alissa Barthel), who talks into her video camera about why
she should win the contest to be on the animated PBS children’s show Dusty along with her family: because her little brother really likes it, and “TV is important.” It might distract him from being teased about their “two dads.” Next there’s Marianne Fitzgibbons (Dianne Zuleger), a sunny but formidable presence who tells us at length how much she loves her new job, which turns out to be secretary of education. Her cheery demeanor toward her troubled secretary Karen (Carrie Hudson) is edged with menace. Marianne — whose zealous fundamentalism becomes increasingly clear — already has her sights on the Dusty episode resulting from Lizzie winning the contest. She means to squelch it and to cancel the series entirely. This puts the show’s producer and selfdescribed paranoid liberal Nathan Friedman (Nathan Emmons) on the bubble,
along with the show’s protective creator, Jessica Fields (Tisha Sloan). Playwright Cram gives these characters dimension and individuality, and this superb group of actors gives them even more. Dianne Zuleger inhabits her role to a truly scary extent. Nathan Emmons and Tisha Sloan are immediately convincing, and Alissa Barthel provides the not entirely innocent burst of light that redeems the adult-made muddle. But it’s Karen (with her love for Kermit the Frog) who becomes the moral center of the play. Carrie Hudson’s compelling performance takes us on that journey. How all this is a comedy with a partially happy ending is hard to describe. Some invented aspects of the plot are weak, but the script is witty and emotional, with lots of ideas flashing amidst the politics, confessions and intrigue. The characters are believable and memorable. I felt director Jyl Hewston struck the right tone — subtle and straightforward, letting the play and the actors carry the evening. Reliving the Bush atmosphere wasn’t easy, but worse is worrying about its second coming. Scenic design is by Daniel Nyiri, lighting by Michael Burkhart, costumes by Laura Rhinehart, sound by Jon Tunney. Dusty and the Big Bad World plays weekends at Redwood Curtain through Nov. 17. Dusty and the Big Bad World is one of three plays on North Coast stages this fall based on real events, involving similar issues. Eureka High just closed The Laramie Project, about the 1998 torture and death of a gay student that led to the federal Hate Crimes Prevention Act, signed into law by President Obama in 2009. The third play is 8, which gets its one and only North Coast staged reading at HSU on Thursday, Nov. 1. In a 2010 trial, a federal court judge found that California Proposition 8 (passed in 2008) could not amend the state constitution to ban same-sex marriages because it violates provisions of the U.S. Constitution. Though the U.S. Supreme Court is yet to weigh in, this case could make same-sex marriage a constitutional right. That trial is the subject of 8, a play by Dustin Lance Black, whose script for Milk — the movie starring Sean Penn about San Francisco’s Harvey Milk — won the Academy Award. After celebrity-rich readings on Broadway and in Los Angeles, the Foundation for Equal Rights granted permission for staged readings throughout North America (and beyond.) The HSU Department of Theatre, Film and Dance pursued and got the opportunity to produce it for the North Coast. Each local theatre gets
the spotlight for one night. In the week just before Arcata’s turn, there were readings scheduled in Des Moines, Baltimore, Anchorage, Austin and Minneapolis. As in readings elsewhere, the emphasis is on involving the whole community, beginning with the actors. So at HSU participants include Michael Fields, James Floss, James Hitchcock, Christina Jioras, Susan Abbey, Michael Thomas, J.M. Wilkerson, Elisa Abelleira, James McHugh, Catherine L. Brown, Sam Machado, Juan Carlos Contreras and Shea King. Clint Rebik directs, with set and lighting by Katie Dawson. “People need to witness what happened in the Proposition 8 trial,” said playwright Black, “if for no other reason than to see inequality and discrimination unequivocally rejected in a court of law where truth and facts matter.” This staged reading is a benefit for the Foundation for Equal Rights. It’s followed by a panel that will lead audience discussion. 8 is on the Van Duzer Theatre stage at HSU on Thursday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m. Donation is $5. Box Office: 826-3928. More information: http://HSUStage. blogspot.com. All three of these plays have at least one real world message: vote. ●

Cross Examining Marriage Equality
A local production of 8
grew up in a Mormon household, eventually came out as gay and won acclaim in film and television. He took home an Academy Award in 2008 for his screenplay for Milk, director Gus Van Sant’s biopic about slain gay rights advocate and San Francisco City Councilman Harvey Milk, He’s won two Writers Guild awards for his work on the HBO series Big Love about polygamy among splinter Mormon sects. He also received a GLAAD Media award in 2010 for 8: The Mormon Proposition, a documentary about the intense involvement of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in promoting California’s Prop. 8. Seeking to spread the play’s marriage equality message, the American Foundation for Equal Rights offered the script for 8 to groups across the U.S. The HSU Dept. of Theatre, Film and Dance won the right to perform it here. A local all-star cast was recruited including Dell’Arte Executive Director Michael Fields, North Coast Repertory Theatre E.D. Michael Thomas, as well as James Floss, James Hitchcock, Christina Jioras, Susan Abbey, J.M. Wilkerson, Elisa Abelleira, James McHugh, Catherine L. Brown, Juan Carlos Contreras,

NEW & USED
Four years ago, on Election Day 2008, California voters passed Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment that overturned a state Supreme Court ruling saying that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry. A protracted legal battle followed, leading to a dramatic 2010 federal trial where marriage equality was once again on the line. The appellate court ultimately overturned Prop. 8, reaffirming marriage equality. The court’s decision inspired LGBT rights activist, screenwriter and playwright Dustin Lance Black. Black took portions of the 2010 trial transcripts, mixed them in with interviews with plaintiffs, defendants and proponents and created 8, a staged reenactment of the trial. The play was produced in New York and Hollywood with an all-star cast including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Martin Sheen, Morgan Freeman, John C. Reilly, Rob Reiner, George Takei, Kevin Bacon and Jamie Lee Curtis among others. A founding board member of the American Foundation for Equal Rights (the group behind 8), Black

If you refer back to recent local Kinetic lore we’ve reported on in these pages (“Kinetic Klash Kontinues” July 7, 2011, is a good place to start) you’ll note the existence of two merry, sometimes at odds kinetic kamps: The Kinetic Universe and the Humboldt Kinetic Association. Without getting too into it here, while there has been kontention over who should steward the Kinetic Grand Championship/Kinetic Sculpture Race, the race (whatever you call it) kontinues every year. And we Humboldtians love it. So there. But k’mon. We can’t fail to point out that the universe and the association are both holding kompeting fundraisers this weekend … on the same night, Saturday, Nov. 3. Sigh, the konflict kontinues, it seems. Here are your kinetic-y options: First, the really trashy party. If you’ve got some junk in your trunk, in your backyard, in your garage and/or in your basement, put it to good use! The Rutabaga Queensrun Kinetic Universe is once again hosting Kinetic Kouture: Fashion With A RePurpose, starting at 7 p.m. at the classy ol’ Eagle House in Eureka. What is it? Essentially a fashion show, but drenched in kinetic absurdity. Aspiring tailors design and display “junque fashion” pieces in an attempt to be
dubbed “Trashonista Gloriosa.” Past year’s winners have manipulated shower curtains, mini blinds, duct tape and bottle caps into carbon footprint-reducing duds. “We queens want to make a big splash, not a big footprint, so we work to find new uses for things that might otherwise end up in the landfill,” says Kinetic Universe President and past Trashionista Gloriosa Kati Texas. Conscious style. So in. The apparel will be significantly scarier across town. This year’s midweek Halloween granted us the opportunity to stretch out the spook. Taking advantage, the Humboldt Kinetic Association is again exhuming the spirit of the Glorious Founder for Hobart’s Historic Halloween Happening at 7:37 p.m. at the Runeberg Hall on Union and Wabash streets in Eureka. A more traditional All Hallows Eve shindig, the night will feature costume contests, games and organized noise by Mostly Harmless and the Justin Hobart Brown Orchestra. The festivities for some reason end promptly at 1:13 a.m. You have to think Brown to know why. Of kourse, you could go to both of ’em. Let there be peace!

One Singular Sensation
A CHORUS LINE
Perhaps it was the meta nature of the story — a musical about the lives of dancers auditioning for a musical — but A Chorus Line became a true Broadway sensation. The 1975 production with a book by James Kirkwood, Jr. and Nicholas Dante, lyrics by Edward Kleban and music by Marvin Hamlisch swept the Tony Awards in 1976, then won the Pulitzer Prize for drama that same year. The storyline is simple: The director and choreographer for an upcoming musical are auditioning dancers for the chorus. Seventeen have made the first cut. All of them need work (as they sing in “I Hope I Get It”) but there are only eight parts, so more culling must be done. The director asks the dancers to talk about themselves and how they got into dance, and the cast presents a series of

self-revelatory monologues and songs. Much is revealed about the difficulties of the song-anddance life. The show ran for 15 years straight on Broadway, and was revived in 2006 to additional acclaim. Traveling companies have crisscrossed the country.

A Chorus Line comes to Arcata Sunday for two performances on one day, Sunday, Nov. 4, at 3 and 8 p.m. in HSU’s Van Duzer Theatre.

dvd Two DVDs A pair of worthy films that did not play in local theaters are now out on DVD: Damsels in Distress. In Whit Stillman’s first film since The Last Days Of Disco, a private East Coast college is watched over by a group of young philanthropists in training, headed by Violet Wister (Greta Gerwig). These preppy “perfume obsessed” and ultimately well-meaning girls believe that the high suicide rate at the college could be curbed by teaching depressed dorm dwellers and frat boys proper hygiene — and giving them parts in tap dancing musicals. The girls declare war on the journalism department when the school paper suggests that the college’s elitist frat house be shut down. When Violet comforts a lovelorn girl by advising her to lower her standards in men, the girl takes her advice by stealing Violet’s clueless, “not very good-looking” boyfriend, which sets Violet on a downward spiral. Although this takes place in the same upper class East Coast world as Stillman’s critically acclaimed Metropolitan, this film’s humor is less dry and more like a classic screwball comedy. Once the absurdity sinks in, Damsels is hilarious, gently mocking its characters without feeling mean-spirited. (Recommended for fans of Wes Anderson.) The Woman in the Fifth. Ethan Hawke and Kristin Scott-Thomas star in this unnerving psychological thriller from Polish director Pawel Pawlikowski. Tom Ricks (Hawke) is an American novelist attempting to settle down in Paris to be near his young daughter, despite a restraining order placed at the request of his ex-wife. The Paris here is not one typically seen on the big screen; it’s a seedy vortex that calls to creative people like a siren, then eats them alive. Ricks’ belongings are stolen as soon as he arrives; he ends up staying rent free above a rundown Turkish café whose owner tells him, “You’re American; I trust you.” The proprietor gives him a mysterious job that involves sitting in an underground room somewhere in the city, watching a security camera and only letting in people who ask for “Monsieur Monde” (Mr. World). Ricks soon notices screams, bloodstains in the hallway and electrical drains that make the lights dim, but he continues to do his job. In his off hours, he begins an affair with a haughty widow (Scott-Thomas) who is the muse of a Hungarian poet, and things get even stranger. Despite his intriguing new life, it seems Ricks is only able to write letters to his daughter. This is a film that leaves much to the imagination, which can be either refreshing or frustrating — perfect for fans of offbeat thrillers with a strong sense of place. — Aimee Hennessy

CLOUD ATLAS. Years ago, filmmaker siblings Andy and Lana Wachowski (The Matrix), who can be called many things but not unambitious, decided to take a stab at adapting David Mitchell’s reputedly un-adaptable novel Cloud Atlas. They invited German filmmaker Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run), another potentially brilliant filmmaker/iconoclast, to work on the screenplay. Together they came up with the questionably bright idea to make the movie together — as in, three directors. Knowing nothing about the narrative complexity of Mitchell’s novel, I was nonetheless curious about the division of labor. As it turns out, the story is built
of six interlinked chronologies, so the filmmakers just divvied them all up. The Wachowskis direct three timelines, Tykwer the other three. They work with separate, mutually exclusive crews, sharing only actors. And the principal actors play at least five roles apiece. The result is a movie that’s difficult to reckon with. The plot bounces between the distant, post-apocalyptic future Earth, the South Pacific circa 1849, Britain in 1936, San Francisco in 1973, back to Britain in the present and to “Neo-Seoul” in the year 2144. Each story arc reappears in the one that follows it chronologically, as a story being told or read by one of the protagonists. The characters across these storylines are played by the same core cast, which includes

Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving and Jim Sturgess. Thematically, the movie delves into the fundamental philosophies and conflicts that define the human experience. Each segment deals with servitude, greed, intellectual freedom, loyalty and trust. It’s an ambitious project, but it suffers from some of the oversimplified philosophizing that made the second and third Matrix movies almost unwatchable. The intellectual exploration is intriguing, but it left me feeling like I’d been hit over the head with a Basic Human Psychology textbook. Plus, some of the storytelling choices come perilously close to unintended, outright silliness. Post-apocalypse Hanks speaks in a pidgin dialect that sounds suspiciously Binks-ian. The green tormentor of his imagination borrows liberally from The Mighty Boosh’s Baboo Yagu. And the prostheses used to “transform” the actors get pretty tiresome and noticeable by the end. Setting aside those complaints, I have to say I found Cloud Atlas generally enjoyable. It certainly didn’t feel like a three-hour movie, and I’m always happy to see Hollywood filmmakers attempt ambitious, difficult art. While this is definitely more popcorn than it is philosophy, it’s also clearly the work of people with the temerity and resourcefulness to bring a unique vision to life — big, colorful, intermittently dazzling life. I have my doubts that this will go down as a classic or a great movie. It may not even be all that good, but it represents a welcome respite from the stream of tent-pole horror, amusement park ride adaptations and remakes that we’ve gotten used to. R. 172m. CHASING MAVERICKS. This one may be even harder to figure out. It’s a surfing movie, co-directed (for some reason) by Curtis Hanson (L.A. Confidential) and Michael Apted (the Up documentary series), both of whom are accomplished directors with some inarguably great work on their résumés. But this collaboration lacks any of the visual poetry and unblinking storytelling that characterize their best stuff. Based on a true story, Mavericks chronicles the early rise of Jay Moriarty (Jonny Weston), a latchkey kid from Santa Cruz who became one of the most prominent names in professional surfing. The movie introduces us to Jay as an ocean-obsessed 8-year-old and then fastforwards almost a decade. As a teenager, he becomes fixated on surfing the nearmythical break of Mavericks, a towering man-killer of a break that few people even know exists. He convinces roofer/surf yogi Frosty Hesson (Gerard Butler) to train him up, and they set off on a journey of self-
discovery and friendship. Narratively, this is all very familiar, and Hanson and Apted do little with the material to differentiate it from any other PG underdog, coming-of-age sports movie. It lacks any insight into the blend of philosophy and athleticism that makes surfing so fascinating. Even worse, the surfing sequences are shot and cut in such a standard, traditional way that they come off lifeless and overlong. There are a few touching, emotional scenes scattered throughout, but they’re all so simple, so overt, that whatever honesty the actors can convey dissipates into the Disney afternoon atmosphere. I was pleasantly surprised at Butler’s performance, but the hard-partying Scot seems an odd choice to play a NorCal beachbum and father of two. Weston’s Moriarty is convincing, presenting him as an open, genuinely good-natured kid making the most of the few good opportunities life throws his way. There isn’t anything particularly bad or offensive about Chasing Mavericks, except the sharp disappointment of oncegreat filmmakers turning a good story into a dull, unexceptional movie. PG. 115m. —John J. Bennett

Hollywood gloss-maestro Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Cast Away) directs this Denzel Washington vehicle about an airline pilot who makes a miraculous crash-landing.

King Arthur, Part 2: Mount Badon By Barry Evans
hen Arthur along with the kings of Britain fought against [the Saxons] in those days, but Arthur himself was the war-lord. … The twelfth battle was on Mount Badon in which there fell in one day 960 men from one charge by Arthur; and no one struck them down except Arthur himself, and in all the wars he emerged as victor. — History of the Britons, c. 830, attributed to the Welsh monk Nennius Last week, we saw that Britain was left virtually defenseless against invaders from the north and from continental Europe after the Roman legions left the island in 410. But we also have many clues and halfclues that the Britons living in the region now called England, inspired perhaps by a Che Guevara-type leader — Arthur? — put up a good fight, at least for a while. Archeologists know that the entire country didn’t immediately sink into anarchy after the legions left, pointing to such sites as the Roman cities of Dorchester and Wroxeter, where civilized town life continued for at least another 200 years. Also, many Iron Age (c. 600 BCE 100 CE) forts were rebuilt in the late fifth century, evidence of organized resistance. The earthworks of Somerset’s South Cadbury, for instance, were strengthened around 470, and digs there have unearthed Mediterranean pottery and remains of Roman-style buildings from that time. More telling, perhaps, is the curious pattern of continental-style graves and pottery, which are abundant in the lowlands of south and east Britain beyond London from before 500 and again after 600. That century-long gap seems to indicate a
period when Anglo-Saxon invaders were held at bay. Which brings us to the battle of Mount Badon “the last great victory of the fatherland,” according to the monk Gildas, writing around 540. Tellingly, perhaps, he doesn’t mention Arthur. That was left to another monk, Nennius, writing three centuries later, who claimed that Arthur single-handedly slew 960 of the enemy. Historians are pretty sure that at least one major battle was fought around 500 CE in which Britons decisively beat the invaders, but they are divided on where it happened, and whether a British (or Romano-British) general called Arthur led the defending forces. One prominent theory holds that Mount Badon was Badbury Rings, a large earthen Iron Age fort located in east Dorset. Badbury was one of the strongholds refortified around 500, and that, together with the similarity of the names Badon-Badbury, has led some historians to propose that a warrior named Arthur led British forces to a decisive victory there, in what Lord Alfred Tennyson poetically called “the last dim weird battle of the west.” However thin the evidence, Arthur’s legend lives on today, in countless books and movies. Next week we’ll see how a semi-historical Arthur was transformed into the myth of the “once and future king.” Barry Evans (barryevans9@yahoo. com) likes to think his Celtic forebears fought alongside Arthur. He is teaching a course at OLLI (826-5880) on King Arthur, dinosaurs and the Seven Wonders starting Nov. 7. l

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of: MATTHEW A. PESENTI A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by RAYMOND R. PESENTI, JR. in the Superior Court of California, County of Humboldt. THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that RAYMOND R. PESENTI, JR. 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.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on November 15, 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. The time for filing claims will not expire before four months from the hearing date noticed above. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. ATTORNEY FOR PETITIONER: DONALD W.
