Meet our staff Chattanooga, Tennessee is a long way from Humboldt County but Patrick decided to make the leap to the West Coast a little over a year ago. The drive took five days. Patrick’s sister lives in Arcata and extolled the virtues of our beautiful county. That was the deciding factor for Patrick to pack up and leave his home town. He likes the Plaza and all the social activities that Arcata has to offer. As a self-proclaimed jack-of-all-trades, it was his grocery industry experience that allowed Patrick to become a Supervisor at Murphy’s in just over a year. “This is a local company without a huge corporate office over looking everything. At Murphy’s, you can actually make a difference,” says Patrick. Next time you are at Sunny Brae, say Hi to Patrick and let him know what Murphy’s can do for you!

Halloween Follies Editor: I read with amusement Ms. Marcy Burstiner’s Nov. 8 column in the North Caast Journal entitled “Funny Business,” wherein, among other things, Ms. Burstiner laments about the Arcata Police Department’s assault on Mr. Freelove. A question for you Ms. Burstiner: Did you

as a concerned citizen contact the Arcata Police Department to try to find out the facts regarding Mr. Shea Freelove’s arrest or did you simply take his word as the true facts? If that’s how gullible you are Ms. Burstiner, I own a bridge in San Francisco I’ll sell to you real cheap. Also Ms. Burstiner, you state, “the police should be our last option and not our first response.” I am quite confident that

had the Arcata Police Department not been in a position to respond to an actual critical incident on the plaza, your letter to the North Coast Journal would have criticized them for that! Ms. Burstiner you state, “I like police and I like laws.” As a retired Humboldt County sheriff’s sergeant, I think maybe not so much! Pete Ciarabellini, Eureka Editor: The City of Arcata has long had a love/hate relationship with the Bill of Rights. In February 1860 “when a small group of white men massacred 70 unarmed Native Americans — mostly women, children and the elderly — on Gunther Island in Humboldt Bay,” Bret Harte wrote an editorial which read, “Little children and old women were mercilessly stabbed and their skulls crushed with axes. When the bodies were landed at Union, a more shocking and revolting spectacle never was exhibited to the eyes of a Christian and civilized people.” This editorial caused Bret to be chased out of town, reportedly ahead of a lynch mob. On to the 1990s when the Arcata city government attempted to have Food Not Bomb activists jailed for five days for each time they served a dinner to the poor people of our community, when the activists were simply exercising their Freedom of Assembly. I was facing a more than 500-day jail sentence if convicted before

Food Not Bombs prevailed. This year the Arcata Council has tried to silence the voices of poor people with signs asking for pizza, but not the vendors selling pizza. Freedom of speech or freedom of commerce?  Now the people of Arcata have lost their freedom of assembly on the Arcata Plaza on Halloween, when the area was patrolled by 36 officers and 15 cadets. When I asked a friend of mine who lives in Arcata about losing the Plaza, he replied, “Don’t matter to me. I won’t be there on Halloween, just the students will.” I won’t be there either. Halloween with 51 hopped-up cops sounds too scary. Rodney Brunlinger, Eureka

Banishment Isn’t Forever Editor: Your Nov. 1 cover story, “Banished,” reported that Arthur Jones was “ordered to leave the reservation and never come back,” which was indeed the position taken by the tribe’s lawyer who argued that Mr. Jones’ banishment should be “permanent.” As Mr. Jones’ lawyer, however, I argued that any exclusion should be indefinite, allowing for it to be modified or set aside in the future. Our position was shared by Tribal Chairman Masten, who told the Two Rivers Tribune on April 10 that “people excluded should have the chance to return to Hoopa after proving they have changed their criminal ways and are no longer a threat to the safety

of the Hupa people.” In the end, the Tribal Court adopted Mr. Jones’ position, ruling that Mr. Jones is “indefinitely excluded” from the reservation. Greg Rael, Bayside

A crash, a memorial — and now all the days after By Ryan Burns


hen Hank Seemann walks into his backyard each morning to let the chickens out of their coop, he feels his wife’s presence and her absence simultaneously. It’s a paradox he can’t explain — she’s gone but not gone. He feels it in the evenings, too, when he closes the chickens in for the night, and at various moments during the days that keep accumulating since her death. Forty-two of them now. Six weeks since Suzie, his companion for 18 years, his wife of 12 years, the mother of their children, 8-year-old Malcolm and 4-year-old Evelyn, died during a morning jog. The grief has nearly hollowed him out, and yet she’s there, too, inside the void. “These are things I just can’t explain,” Seemann says, in the first interview he’s given since a hit-and-run driver struck his wife and two fellow joggers. He’s sitting in the office they shared, staring vaguely at the floor as he speaks softly, his fingers laced together in

his lap. Outside, the rain has momentarily stopped and light from the silvery overcast sky pours through the window and glints off his gold wedding band. Brightly colored kids’ paintings are taped to the walls behind the computer where Suzie would sit into the wee hours, preparing PowerPoint presentations for her students at HSU. She’d pull the latest weather images off the Internet, Seemann says, and use them to explain the complex mechanics of earth-atmosphere interactions, climate change and weather forecasting. “I knew her the best, and there was nothing left unsaid between us,” he says. Perhaps this knowledge gives him the courage to think about the day she died, because that’s what he brings up next. “I saw her that morning. I was up early. I was washing dishes. She came to me. She kissed me on the cheek.” For the last time, she left their Freshwater house, the place where the family had hit its “sweet spot,” in a quiet culde-sac beyond an idyllic covered bridge.

“We were just — flourishing,” he says. As most people in the community have now read or heard from friends, Suzanne Wetzel Seemann went for a run early on Sept. 27 with her friends Terri Vroman-Little and Jessie Hunt, and Hunt’s dog Maggie. The three women were active members of the local running community, training for the Humboldt Redwoods Marathon. They’d run less than a mile north from Three Corners Market along the western shoulder of Myrtle Avenue when they were run down by the driver of a fourdoor Kia sedan, who then fled (“Senseless Tragedy,” Oct. 4). Suzie died at the scene, as did Maggie the dog. Vroman-Little and Hunt suffered serious injuries and are facing long recoveries. Both women recently did an interview via Skype with KHUM DJ Mike Dronkers, telling him they look forward to running again. A 28-year-old man named Jason Anthony Warren is a “person of interest” in the hit-and-run as well as the murder of Dorothy Evelyn Ulrich, a 47-yearold wife and mother of three who was found dead in her Hoopa home later the same day. As reported by the Two Rivers Tribune, Warren’s criminal past stretches back to his adolescence. He was convicted of attempted murder at age 16 and has been in and out of prison ever since. On Sept. 27, the day Suzie was killed, her friends were mangled and Dorothy Ulrich was found dead in Hoopa, Warren was wanted for failing to appear at a Sept. 7 sentencing hearing. He’d been charged in April with second degree robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and being a felon in possession of a firearm, but he was released on Aug. 24 under a “Cruz waiver” granted by the court. The plea deal worked like this: If Warren showed up for sentencing on Sept. 7, he’d be convicted only of being a felon in possession of a firearm. If he didn’t, he’d also be convicted of the robbery (“Two Deaths, Many Questions,” Oct. 25). Warren was taken into custody on Sept. 28 and has been sentenced to nine years in prison. The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office and California Highway Patrol are investigating Ulrich’s

murder and the hit-and-run, respectively. Their reports are expected next week. “I know there’s anger in the community,” Seemann says. “I know there’s pain.” Beyond that, he doesn’t want to talk about the Warren case now. He’s in pain, too. He doesn’t say so but you can see it in the shadows around his eyes. You can hear it in his quavering voice when he talks about Suzie’s memorial, which was attended by Dorothy Ulrich’s mom and sister-in-law, or about the outpouring of support from the community. But he’s not focusing on the pain or on the criminal reports that have yet to be released. “Right now blame does nothing for Suzie, does nothing for my family, does nothing for the community.” Instead he’s focusing on his wife, surrounding himself with memories of her, looking at photographs of them together as insecure young students at MIT, as bride and groom, as park rangers in Yosemite’s Tuolumne Meadows, as proud and happy parents. He pulls out a plastic Sterilite tub and snaps off the lid, revealing some of Suzie’s belongings: an old park ranger uniform; a book called Extraordinary Chickens; a medal she got for finishing the Santa Rosa Marathon; a T-shirt for the “Garfield Gallup” kids’ run that she helped organize for her son’s elementary school; a stuffed animal from her childhood; a map of Yosemite; the program from their wedding … . Seemann holds each item for a few moments before setting it down and reaching for another. It’s as if, by taking each one in his hand, he’s making them glow with life, like breathing on hot embers. The weather was beautiful in the days after her death, and Seemann spent a lot of time outside, walking. He says he experienced moments of clarity in those first few days that revealed the path he needs to take with Malcolm and Evelyn. It’s the same path they were already on with Suzie. “It’s us as a family, and staying together as a family,” he says. “And Suzie is part of that family.” Seemann can’t imagine healing. That word doesn’t make sense to him. He thinks more in terms of recovery, a willful act, the way you might recover from a hurricane. One hour at a time, you just pick up the pieces. l • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012

Camera. Action. $5 Million? “In a small town in Northern California on the coast. Crew has invaded the town like roaches. We’re everywhere. People here are friendly.” — M. Night Shyamalan on Twitter, April 22 They came. They scouted the land. They returned and created a bustling Hollywood set in Humboldt Redwoods State Park. And reportedly, they left behind $5 million. But we don’t know yet just where. For a later location shoot, in Moab, Utah, the makers of the sci-fi flick After Earth spent $400,000 for five days of shooting, reported Jeff Richards of the Moab TimesIndependent. That included lodging and food during six weeks of preparations and five days spent shooting. Here in Humboldt, for roughly twice as long — nine days of shooting plus pre-shoot scouting trips — the filmmakers reportedly spent nearly 10 times that much. Humboldt County Film Commissioner Cassandra Hesseltine says she was given the $5 million figure by a Sony representative. An official detailed expenditure breakdown will be filed on a form required by the California Film Commission. That form is expected shortly after Thanksgiving. It’s possible to reconstruct some of the expenses. About a half million for accommodations for a crew of 400-plus people and another half million for gasoline, for all those hour-long trips from Eureka to the shooting site near Weott. In Humboldt, much of the crew stayed at the Red Lion in Eureka, which also hosted the movie’s temporary production office. Will and Jaden Smith stayed at Bear River Casino’s hotel. Trucks and heavy equipment were rented from United Rentals. Supplies were purchased at other area businesses, from Valley Lumber to Staples. Cars were rented.

The figure doesn’t include the salaries of actors and film execs. Hesseltine says she believes $5 million’s in the right ballpark. Her office reports past Hollywood productions also dropped big money in Humboldt: $8.8 million spent here for The Majestic (2001) and $2.2 million for Outbreak (1995). If this movie’s a huge hit, Hesseltine says, the shooting site could become a tourist destination. That’s what happened to the town of Forks, Wash., a holy site for fans of the Twilight kiddie vampire series. Closer to home, the Ewok village used for Return of the Jedi filming in Del Norte County attracted tourists until the set was vandalized and removed. A new cinematic tour of the area, however, could reprise Hollywood history for visitors. A marker could be placed in the woods — “Jaden Smith’s character stood here.” Tourists could take photos at the site, experience the legacy. That project’s in the works, Hesseltine says. After Earth stars legendary Jaden Smith (Karate Kid) and his dad Will (Fresh Prince in Black). It’s directed by M. Night Shyamalan (1999’s Sixth Sense was good). The film is set 1,000 years in the future. Earth’s been abandoned long ago by forwardthinking humans. The Smiths of the new millennium crash land on the pristine planet once called home. Think Disney’s Wall-E meets’s Life After People. Armed with Sony’s new $65,000 F65 digital camera, spiffy gear that captures images in dizzyingly high resolution, movie makers recorded NorCal Nature in pixels four times denser than the industry standard. Even if Sony’s big-budget blockbuster fails to achieve escape velocity when it comes out in June, it’ll look fabulous. And it will likely make money. Shyamalan’s 2010 movie The Last Airbender was created on a production budget of $150 million. Critics panned it. “Stilted dialogue, wooden acting, glacial pacing, cheesy special effects, tacky-looking sets,

ugly costumes, poorly staged and edited action sequences, all shown in murky, cutrate 3-D,” wrote a NY Post critic. The movie lost money domestically — bringing in only $131 million. Not to worry, though. The Last Airbender grossed another $188 million in foreign markets. Back in Humboldt, whatever economic boost After Earth has provided wasn’t limited to Sony’s official spending, Hesseltine notes. Crew members ate and drank at local establishments. They bought groceries at the North Coast Co-op. Hesseltine relates a story of Jaden Smith running into Target to buy Nerf toys for downtime entertainment. Local governments put up the money to run the Humboldt Film Commission, hoping to encourage visits like these, with whatever glam, tourism and dollars they may bring. Humboldt County contributes the lion’s share, with smaller contributions from Del Norte County, the cities of Eureka and Arcata and the Fortuna Chamber of Commerce. From all those sources combined, Hesseltine’s budget ends up around $75,000, which covers office rent, salaries and two trips a year to Los Angeles. Hesseltine spent a week driving After Earth scouts around Del Norte and Humboldt more than a year ago as they auditioned redwood forests for a role in the movie. The filmmakers chose Humboldt Redwoods State Park. In April, a small city bloomed off Dyerville Loop Road. Security guards ensured the safety of the stars. A well-stocked kitchen fed the crew. Heavy equipment was obtained. So were trailers, traffic cones, a travelin’ school for the child actors and portable toilets. By May 3, the After Earth team was packing bags and returning the forest to its natural, port-a-potty-free state. Shyamalan posted: “N. California is wrapped. Thanks to the people of Eureka for tolerating us and giving us such warmth.”


Two Killed, UPS Big Rig Burned in Fiery Collision



Blog Jammin’

Two people were killed and a UPS truck loaded with packages bound for the coast erupted in flames early yesterday morning when a Honda sedan collided with the two-trailer big rig in Redding. According to the Record Searchlight, the United Parcel Service truck was making a left turn across traffic from northbound State Route 273 onto Buenaventura Blvd. when a two-door Honda sedan, speeding southbound on 273, collided with the side of the truck. Both the truck and the car immediately burst into flames, according to Redding Police Sgt. Casey Bokavich. The Honda’s driver and passenger — Jeffrey Courtroul, 23, and Thomas Pimentel, 24, both of Redding — died from massive blunt force injuries, a Shasta County Coroner’s investigator told the R-S. The report continues: Redding Police officer Justin Duval helped the UPS driver, John Abraham, 57, out of the truck as his lower half was still on fire, Bokavich said. They were able to put out the flames engulfing Abraham, he said. The driver reportedly suffered second-degree burns and was treated and released at a nearby hospital. Some of the packages in one of the two trailers were reportedly salvaged. The rest were destroyed. ● • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, NOV. 15, 2012

2 Each year I write an introduction to the Journal Gift Guide, which runs every week between now and the week before … well, the start of Kwanzaa. I try to infuse it with holiday cheerfulness. Last year was especially tough. Three years into a recession like we’ve never seen before, not in my lifetime. Unemployment. Homes under water financially. Kids moving back home after college. (Not ours, thank God.) I ended up saying, things could be worse, which is definitely not cheerful. We always urge readers to shop locally year-round, especially at independent businesses. After all, independent businesses donate more than twice as much per sales dollar to local nonprofits than chains do. (Source: American Independent Business Alliance.) What else could we do? Last year we joined KHUM radio to raise money and awareness for Food for People, the umbrella agency for all hunger-relief efforts in Humboldt County. We offered to include in the edition immediately following Thanksgiving a “Report to the Community” on Food for People programs. (For the record: 12 separate programs and 17 food pantries serving individuals and families, seniors and children.) And our printers, Western Web out on the Samoa Peninsula, generously inserted at no cost pre-printed envelopes asking for




direct donations to the food bank. How’d it go last year? Journal readers are very generous. KHUM listeners are too, but the addition of the Journal envelopes brought in an extra $10,000 or so. More importantly, many of those donors were new to supporting Food for People and many of them became monthly donors — money the food bank can count on every month. So while you’re getting ready to shop (lots of cool stuff in the pages that follow), get your checkbook ready. KHUM folks will be at different supermarkets for a week starting Monday, Nov. 26, handing out information and taking both food and money donations. And that week, on Thursday, Nov. 29, the Journal will print the 2012 Food for People Report to the Community and Western Web will again insert those magic envelopes. This year, we are finally seeing a few rays of hope that the worst may be behind us. Financial markets are recovered. Unemployment at least is not worse. The housing market is steady. Businesses are getting loans again. Even gas prices came down in recent weeks. (Oh, and our president doesn’t have to run for office again. Another reason to be thankful.) So please show Food for People how generous Journal readers can be for a second year. Happy holidays. — Judy Hodgson

Lazio’s Calamari Fettucine


Ingredients: 1 medium onion, diced 3 cloves garlic, sliced and divided 5 Tbs olive oil, divided cup dry white wine 1 ½ tsp Italian seasoning ½ tsp lemon seasoning ½ tsp salt ¼ tsp ground black pepper 3 Tbs chopped fresh parsley 28 oz can diced stewed tomatoes 8 oz can tomato puree 1 ¼ lbs squid legs and bodies, cleaned and cut into 1/2 inch pieces 2 Tbs dry sherry lemon juice (optional)








On the Waterfront Remembering Lazio’s By Jennifer Fumiko Cahill


entioning Lazio’s around locals of a certain age is a bit like bringing up an old flame —there is sighing and smiling and remembrance of meals past. There are tales of tourists lined up in the summertime and locals streaming in on rainy evenings, shaking out their coats and warming up over bowls of chowder and plates of crisp-fried sole, cod and shellfish. Nothing fancy, just good food. In the heady days of long crab seasons and less restricted drag fishing, Lazio’s had nearly any kind of seafood you could want — fried, broiled or grilled — as well as crab cioppino, stuffed sole, Louie’s and Newburg’s, everything fresh-caught and downright cheap. Opened in 1944, Lazio’s was attached to the Lazio family’s fish processing plant in the Nelson Steamship building at the foot of C Street. The dining room was low-key, with maps of Humboldt County on the placemats and a window that looked directly into the plant. Patrons could dip their bread in bouillabaisse as they watched the thousands of pounds of salmon, shrimp, crab and bottom fish moving down the line. In the early days, head cook “Sarge” Kilpatrick, a big

Irish woman, ruled the bustling kitchen’s fryers, broilers and burners with an iron fist. Lawrence Lazio, who took over the restaurant from his father Tom in 1960, recalls, “We had three ladies breading and frying on eight-hour shifts,” to keep up with waves of orders. Lawrence Lazio grew up in the plant and the restaurant, “shoveling sole onto a conveyor belt” from the age of 13. For him, Lazio’s cannot be repeated. Beyond the prime dockside location and the fine chefs who came through the kitchen, it was the fresh off the boat fish supplied by the plant at cost that made it possible for Lazio’s to turn out such incredible dishes so inexpensively. He squints a little behind his wire-rimmed glasses as he recounts the fish that were once plentiful, like sand dabs and rex sole, both staples on the old menu, now hard to come by. Some of the recipes on the menu were old standards, like fish and chips, or Angels on Horseback (oysters wrapped in bacon and broiled). Others were family recipes from Lawrence’s mother Annetta, who married Tom Lazio in San

Francisco’s North Beach in the 1920s. It was an arranged marriage to knit two Italian-American families together — the sons and daughters of one family were betrothed to the sons and daughters of another — and Tom lucked out and got a girl who could really cook. Her family was from the seaside town of Santa Ella, near Palermo in Sicily, and at home she cooked simple, hearty seafood dishes that inspired the

menu at the restaurant. My own mother-in-law, a SicilianAmerican herself, wheedled the recipe for Calamari Fettuccine out of one of the chefs at Lazio’s in the mid 1970s (no small feat, though one wonders if Sarge would have given it up). The chef shared the recipe on the condition that my mother-in-law keep coming to the restaurant, which she did until it was sold in 1995. Food Network devotees may balk at the dried Italian seasoning or the Lawry’s, but this is how they did it back in the day. Lawrence also let us in on his instructions for sole and eggs, a favorite from Lazio’s heyday that was served with bread baked on the premises. But as for the secrets of the famous clam chowder, he smiles. “Some things have to stay secret.” •

Star Struck

Meteor showers and more await those who persevere By Rees Hughes


or the grand finale of a Sierra hiking trip this past August, we got up at 2:30 a.m. and left from Guitar Lake to summit Mt. Whitney for sunrise. There was a new moon that night, and the neon and incandescent civilization was far away. With no competing light in this rarified air more than two miles high, we emerged from our tent to skies ablaze with stars. There were so many bright stars that I had trouble picking out even the most familiar constellations. And the radiant band of the Milky Way was like a sparkling belt around the well-fed waist of the heavens. I was awestruck. On the North Coast it can be easy to forget that these same celestial objects lie above our tenacious coastal marine layer. I had only lived in Humboldt County for a few years before I stopped looking up. My evenings in the Sierra rekindled my interest in the night skies. Russ Owsley, president of the Astronomers of Humboldt group, confesses that stargazing along the coast is “difficult at most times,” but his enthusiasm is infectious. He brushed aside my reservations. My goodness, man, you can’t let a few clouds get in the way. Owsley did have some welcome

advice. “Dress in layers and dress warmly,” he cautioned. He uses gloves with the fingers free. “Take some food and a good planisphere.” Although smart phone aps have increasingly made this traditional star chart obsolete, I’m still old school. You don’t have to invest in an expensive telescope. Binoculars can do a very good job of opening up the heavens. After all, the ancient Babylonian astronomers were incredible observers and did so without benefit of magnification. I initially started by trying to plan my outings. I contacted Ryan Campbell, who teaches astronomy at HSU and graciously offered to include me on a weather contingent class trip to the HSU observatory on Fickle Hill. Of course, after a string of clear nights, our appointed date arrived concurrent with the first wet storm of autumn. Hmmm … star gazing on the North Coast depends on your ability to seize the moment. Later, a string of cold, clear nights presented my first opportunity for spontaneity. I quickly collected my binoculars and a guide to the autumn sky, and dutifully added enough clothing that I looked like a porcine Michelin Man. I headed to the Arcata Bottom, where I was immediately

mesmerized by the setting sliver of a moon. For the first quarter hour I was content to watch its descent over the greater Manila skyline. You cannot help but notice the ghostly image of the full moon extending from the illuminated crescent. This view always makes me think, admiringly, of Leonardo DiVinci who first conceived of the concept of “earthshine.” One of the many great stories that accompany the study of the night skies. Some years ago I had seen some of DaVinci’s Codex Leicester, a collection of 18 sheets of paper filled with drawings and script covering a variety of scientific topics, on display at the Seattle Art Museum (Bill Gates owns this Codex). It included the section where Leonardo correctly suggested that we are always able to see the faint outline of the complete moon because of the light reflected off the Earth’s oceans (actually most of the light is reflected by clouds). In fact, our own planet lights up the lunar night fifty times brighter than a full moon and produces the ashen glow. Leonardo’s genius solved this riddle some 30 years before Copernicus suggested that the sun was the center of the universe in 1543 and 100 years before German astronomer Johannes Kepler proved DaVinci correct. After watching the moon on that clear night, I spread out my blanket and positioned myself to watch the heavens. I had not realized just how much ambient light spreads from Arcata and Eureka. There is a good case to be made for driving to the vista point on Berry Summit or to the Kneeland Airport, where I headed for my second rather spontaneous outing. Yet I was still able to see a great deal. My active imagination bounced around with each noise from adjacent fields. There was cud chewing and scuffling by smaller denizens of the night. It took a while to settle in and focus my attention on the night sky. Patience was rewarded by several vivid meteorites with luminescent vapor trails. And perseverance helped me match much of my planisphere with what I was seeing above me. Ursa Major and Minor, of course. Delphinus, the dolphin, Cassiopeia, and Cepheus are distinctive. Hercules and Pegasus took me longer to identify. The International Astronomical Union recognizes 88 constellations, although many of those are not visible from the northern hemisphere and those that are change with the seasons. I pulled out my binoculars and spotted several wellknown double stars. Satellites crisscrossed with a sense of urgency. They always seem

rushed to me; out of sync with the rest of the night. Mankind’s incongruous addition to the firmament. All this in an hour or so. I had neglected to bring gloves and my fingers were yearning to wrap themselves around a warm cup of tea. There is something to be said for star gazing from the vantage point of a well-situated hot tub. My later trip to Kneeland Airport, while above the clouds, was compromised by a mostly full moon. The night however, turned out to be much warmer and the tarmac of the runway shared its accumulated heat from the day. Not far from the airport, at Kneeland School, is one of three local observatories. (The others are HSU’s Fickle Hill observatory and College of the Redwoods’ campus facility). Using the 14-inch Celestron telescope and a 6-inch refractor, it is possible to get a glimpse into what Owsley had called “deep space,” the home of galaxies, nebulae, planets and other celestial objects. This can best be done by attending one of the meetings or events hosted by the Astronomers of Humboldt at Kneeland School on the Saturday closest to the “dark of the moon.” The group will also have telescopes set up at the Gazebo in Eureka during the Saturday, Dec. 1, Arts Alive — weather permitting of course. It has an excellent website for both specific club information and general astronomical resources: Several upcoming meteor showers will reach their peak at times when the moon offers minimal interference. The Leonids Meteor Shower, with its climax around Nov. 17-18, and the Geminids Meteor Shower (considered by many to be the best meteor shower in the heavens) with a peak around Dec. 13-14, should offer excellent celestial shows. EarthSky notes that while the Leonids have produced some of the greatest meteor storms in history (1966, most notably) with rates as high as thousands of meteors per hour, many years they are but a whimper. It does not take but a night of peering into the skies to appreciate mankind’s fascination with stars. Lord Byron called stars the “poetry of heaven.” The clear night sky is part aesthetic and romantic, part spiritual and scientific. In a vast, infinite universe, it is a poignant reminder of our humanness. l If you would like to write a Get Out!

Clan Dyken photo by

Daniel Harrison


Clan Dyken, plus a Scorpio “Stingdig,” Kraddy, Demarco, SquarPeg, King Dude and David Nelson By Bob Doran


t’s a 20-year tradition: Each fall, ecoconscious hippie rockers Clan Dyken head out from their homes in the Sierra on something they call the “Revive the Beauty Way Tour.” The family band journeys through California and Oregon in a biodiesel bus gathering donations of cash and food along the way, then heads over to the Big Mountain/Black Mesa region in Arizona, home of the Dineh (Navajo) people. For decades the Dineh have been struggling to hold on as the infamous Peabody Coal Company (remember John Prine’s “Paradise”?) strip-mined their ancestral land. Clan Dyken delivers organic turkeys, quilts, firewood and other gifts in time for an alt. Thanksgiving. The Beauty Way Tour lands in Humboldt on Thursday for a benefit dinner and concert at the Bayside Grange with Clan Dyken plus locals Julian Lang, Joanne Rand, Mo Hollis and Morgan Corviday and young rapper Abstract, who is rolling out a new CD that night. Also on Thursday, another Missing Link Soul Night blast of spun vinyl at Humboldt Brews. This time Matt n’ Adam, Mantea$e, King Maxwell, Jaymorg and special guest DJ Gary Vila from Gold Beach, Ore. say “Happy Birthday, Ed Asner!” Why Ed Asner? “Why not?” says Matt Jackson. “The man has acted in everything from Mary Tyler Moore to Batman: The Animated Series.” And let’s not forget the MTM spin-off Lou Grant, where he was an opinionated newspaper editor. Fans of bands like Afromassive and Motherlode will want to check out Seattle’s Poly-

rhythmics, playing Thursday at Jambalaya. The eight-piece combo with chicken scratch guitar, a tight horn section and intricate polyrhythmic percussion mixes nu-funk with Afrobeat sounds. Very funky. That’s the same night The Royal Drummers of Burundi play at the Van Duzer (more details in the calendar). I caught a set by the primal drum ensemble at WOMAD in S.F. years ago. Seeing them take the stage dancing as they beat on huge wooden drums balanced on top of their heads was unforgettable. Get your funny on that Thursday as BADUM-CHH Comedy takes over the Pearl Lounge. Careful, uncontrolled laughter while sipping high-end Martinis could be dangerous. There’s a battle for hip hop fans that Thursday. Nocturnum has a Dr. Green Thumb show with L.A. underground stars Sunspot Jonz (from Living Legends) and Pigeon John backed by DJ Kruse, plus special guests Riddlore?, CVE, Lord Zen R.el.z.m. of The Visionaries and Dr. Oop from Black Love Radiators. (Note: Bring a couple of cans of food for a food drive for the Mateel Meal, and you’ll save a few bucks on your ticket.) Meanwhile at the Red Fox, Big Daddy presents Smoov-E, a rapper whose album titles, Long Duck Dong, Sum Yung Girl, Simply Suggestive, El Joy Del Sexo, etc. give you an idea of the X-rated comedic vein he works. He’s joined by Pat Rich and Humboldt’s own Hiway. Wait, that’s not all. This week’s Pressure

Anya Dirty Thursday at the Alibi is a special “hip hop edition.” DJ Red pulled together an unusual crew for Saturday’s “Old School Hip Hop Night” at the Jambalaya: Jsun from Deep Groove Society and Chocwon (aka Datablend) help spin the vinyl. Still want more hip hop? Myka 9’s Sovereign Soul tour with Factor, Paranoid Castle and Graves 33 hits the Red Fox Sunday. Friday night at Humboldt Brews Reba of That’s How We Roll presents her fifth annual Scorpio Stingdig. The mélange of hip hop and electronica is hosted by L.A. hip hop vet Abstract Rude from Abstract Tribe Unique. It features Rob Garza, half of Thievery Corporation, now working out of S.F. shaking up dancefloors worldwide. Special guests include Leningrad-born, L.A.-based rapper Ivan Ives, dancer Luna Moon and saxomaniac Chris Noonan. World Famous has back-to-back EDM rave-ups at the Arcata Theatre Lounge this weekend starting with a Friday thing featuring Kraddy, one of the original masterminds behind The Glitch Mob, solo since 2009. Joining him, “The Reverend” Bleep Bloop from Healdsburg, ace remixer MiHKAL from Oakland and Aussie DJ Daneekah. Saturday at the ATL, World Famous presents an evening of melodic dubstep and electrofunk featuring Love and Light, aka Matt Madonna and Ryan Anderson, a dubby duo from the Reno/Tahoe area. Also on hand will be D.C. go-go funksters Fort Knox Five vs. electro-lounge producer Thunderball and another Fort Knox act, The All Good Funk Alliance. The party is a celebration of 10 years of operation for Northcoast Horticulture Supply. In dancehall music, it’s all about the “riddim,” essentially a backing track (rhythm and music), a groove often used by a number of vocalists. For example the Diwali riddim was the basis for multiple hits with different lyrics done by different singers. Jamaica-born dancehall artist Demarco escaped from the mean streets of Kingston and moved to Baltimore when he was 16. Since then he has forged a career as a double threat: He crafts popular riddims for the dancehall marketplace, and also turns them into hits for himself, supplying vocals and music. Demarco rides da riddim Friday at Nocturnum with selectas Rude Lion and Second Nature Sound. Self-described “stranger chamber music” ensemble SquarPeg plays Sewell Gallery Friday evening. Led by Gregg Moore on tuba and mandolin, the jazzy band includes Jill Petricca on sax and flute and Tina Garsen on sax and bass clarinet. As Moore explained, the arrangements are designed for a variable fourth member. When I heard them at the monthly Bayside Grange breakfast re-

cently, that was tabla player Rahman Abdul, whose intricate rhythms fit perfectly. He’ll be back for the gig at the Sewell. The Red Fox has a double show day Friday starting with an afternoon Harvest Party Barbecue (5-ish) with non-trad dinner jazz by The Dead Kenny Gs, as in Skerik, Mike Dillon and Brad Houser. Later on it’s crazy-ass country with Joe Buck Yourself from Hank3’s band plus The Hooten Hallers duo and Ponykiller. Friday’s triple alt. show at the Shanty features Seattle’s King Dude, aka TJ Cowgill from Teen Cthulhu and Book of Black Earth. According to the genre slot on his Facebook page, the Dude plays “Luciferian American folk” — cold, dark, reverbdrenched stuff with shades of old murder ballads. Also on the bill, Warm Climate from L.A. with members of Sun Araw, and Brian Pyle, aka Ensemble Economique, who will be joined by David and Jonny from White Manna for the second half of his set. Weirdness guaranteed. Chris Parreira has another busy week planned. Friday he plays with The Trouble at Six Rivers, Saturday he joins Trouble bandmate Marc Jeffares and Lindsey Battle at the Eureka Inn with each playing a solo set. Tuesday Parreira plays with The Lonesome Roses at Mad River Brewing. Sunday Chris shifts to presenter bringing Ashland indie folk trio Kites & Crows to Robert Goodman Wines. Frontman Mysha Caruso‘s finely crafted songs are accompanied by Jesse Baldwin on banjo and accordion with Nancy Martin on cello and vibraphone. Not your usual folk. Tribute of the week: House of Floyd returning to Arkley Center Saturday for another round of psychedelic madness based on the oeuvre of Pink Floyd, complete with sweeping lasers, pulsating light show and an inflatable pig. The monthly Moonstone Performance Outreach moves to Trinidad Town Hall Sunday with a full day of music including Jim Hubbard‘s Fire Sign (first up at 1 p.m.), songwriter Tony Roach, Jen and Dave Band, Brett McFarland, True Gospel Singers (also playing Friday at the Eureka Inn), Asha Nan and Eclectica. Sandy and Keith and The Lost Dogs close things out with a set (around 7 p.m.) followed by a blues jam. SoHum’s people-powered radio station KMUD follows its fall pledge drive with a benefit concert Sunday at the Mateel featuring The David Nelson Band, an all-star jammers congregation with Nelson (also leader of New Riders of the Purple Sage) on lead guitar, Barry Sless on pedal steel, Mookie Siegel on keyboards and accordion, Pete Sears on bass, and, for this tour, Wally Ingram on drums. Good band. Good cause. All good. l • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012

ver the past several seasons we’ve had our Charles Dickens’ yuletide, our Lewis Carroll holidays and last year’s recession-conscious Christmas. This year’s holiday stage shows have more variety and less of a coincidental theme. A bit of the recession still lingers in two musicals with roots in the 1930s, but there are also holiday fantasies and even a love story from India. What they have in common is that they’re colorful, musical and family-friendly. First up is North Coast Repertory Theatre, opening the classic Cole Porter musical Anything Goes this Thursday, Nov. 15. Like many movies of the period, this 1934 show is an escapist comedy involving love and high jinks among the hilariously wealthy. This time some romantic criminals are added to the mix-ups aboard an ocean liner, with Cole Porter tunes that are simultaneously topical and timeless. The show’s latest Tony Award-winning Broadway revival was in 2011.

Lauren Wieland directs the NCRT production featuring Eric Standifird, Keili Simmons Marble (also the dance director), Molly Severdia (also the music director), Clayton Cook and David Simms. Anything Goes plays for a solid month of weekends, Nov. 15-Dec. 15. Tickets and information: 442-6278. A different 1930s is the setting for the 1977 musical Annie, which opens at Ferndale Repertory Theatre Friday, Nov. 23, the day after Thanksgiving. With a story based on the popular 1930s comic strip, it’s set in the Great Depression, featuring an 11-year-old orphan heroine, a mean orphanage director, a beneficent millionaire and a singing-and-dancing President Franklin D. Roosevelt. And the story ends on Christmas. With music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Martin Charnin, Annie was an immediate sensation and has been a theatrical staple ever since.

Eat, Drink and Go See Dance

Humboldt’s holiday dance season soars en pointe and behind veils By Stephanie Silvia


atch that whiff of chestnuts roasting? Recurring visions of sugar plums? Feel a tug toward childhood? As the early darkness descends, the world tilts toward the stars and we begin planning festivities to mark the year’s end. Humboldt County — home to a classical Nutcracker Ballet in its Victorian era splendor, along with original takes on Yule-time tales — overflows with holiday dance performances that whisk us into the spirit of the season. The size of some of these productions and audiences is noteworthy for our sparsely populated region. Enormous casts of all ages appear onstage and sold-out theaters fill with doting relatives, the December dance crowd (often revisiting their own childhood traditions), and the regular dance audience. First up, Ferndale Dance Academy presents Ease on Down the Road, an adaption of the Wizard of Oz, at the historic Winema Theater in Scotia on the evening of Saturday, Dec 1. Written and directed by academy alumna Kelsey Snyder, who also studied with City Ballet of San Diego, this work is choreographed to give the youngest students, ages 6 to 13, a chance to perform in leading roles. The hamlet of Ferndale harbors a gem in this studio and its director Laura East, who stud-

ied with the Joffrey Ballet and believes in giving her students classical ballet training to underlie their studies in jazz, tap or hip-hop. The disciplined vocabulary pays off in the compelling dancers East sends out from the wings. The entire cast of her spring concert, from the littlest primas on up to the principals, was remarkably performance savvy. Her events are known for telling stories in dance, making for a fun kids’ show — at 45 minutes long, perfect entertainment even for pre-schoolers.   Ferndale Dance Academy presents Ease on Down the Road, Saturday, Dec. 1, at 7 p.m. at the Winema Theatre in Scotia. General admission is $10. Children 4 and under are free. Tickets can be purchased at the door starting at 30 minutes before show time. Erin McKeever and the work that comes out of her Trillium Dance Studios have been steadily growing in artistic depth and clarity. McKeever and her faculty of accomplished dance artists have the knack of turning a studio school dance recital into a gala event. In a wise move, rather than stage yet another Nutcracker, she created her own Christmas holiday concert, ’Twas the Night Before Christmas, which returns Saturday, Dec. 8, and Sunday, Dec. 9, at the Eureka High Auditorium. Annual concertgoers take note of this venue change from the Van

Duzer; McKeever has been telling the kids, “We’re going on tour.” Be sure to look for the Bellerinas, easy to recognize in their bell shaped dresses, dancing in waves to Carol of the Bells, and a mini samba parade of glittery gold Christmas lights among the cast of more than 200 elves, reindeer, dancing ornaments, teddy bears, jack-in-the-boxes and pirates — yes pirates! Taking off where the timeless Clement C. Moore poem ends, the second act pits the dashing pirate king and his band of thieves against all the magical creatures come to life after hours beneath the towering Christmas tree. It’s reminiscent of Peter Pan and the Lost Boys, but this time the pirate wins the ballerina doll and the orphans gain a family. Corny, maybe, but in a way that taps into your heart and takes you to a simple place where love and kindness triumph.  Along with the children’s performances, Trillium Dance Ensemble, made up of faculty and advanced students, and a new junior ensemble, will perform in contemporary and pointe pieces. Trillium Dance Studios presents, ’Twas the Night Before Christmas, Saturday, Dec., 8 at 6 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 9, at 2 p.m., at the Eureka High Auditorium, 1915 J St. For ticket info call: 822-8408. In its second year, Shoshanna’s wondrous Nutcracker: Arabian Nights! is surely on the way to becoming another unique Humboldt holiday tradition. Featuring the Ya Habibi Dance Company, the dynamic Humboldt Rockers and legions of Shoshanna’s students, this re-imagining of the familiar holiday ballet includes much of the diverse, local belly dance community and guest artists from out of the area.  This Arabian night begins with a covey of silk-clad, little girl dancers in a take on the classic party scene that opens the Nutcracker and the enchanted powers that send Clara and the Prince (Ciara Cheli-Colando and Brian Smith) into a land where visions of Turkish delight abound. The entertainment is fit for a sultan and a sultana. The battle scene between the rats (led by the rat queen) and the tin soldiers is being danced by Deeta and Modern Gypsy, an Oriental style belly dance troupe from Redding and the Humboldt Rockers, who combine break dancing with Tahtee, an Egyptian martial art form with sticks. (It was so cool last year.) This performance is all about the magic of childhood and the joy that comes from being a devotee to the art of dance. Nutcracker: Arabian Nights,  Redwood Raks, in the Old Creamery Building, at Eighth and L streets, Arcata, Saturday, Dec. 8, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 9, 2 p.m. Redwood Raks is a small venue, so reservations are suggested. For more information call (707) 616-6876 or go to In December all roads lead to The

Nutcracker — old school — danced to the original Tchaikovsky score, and in our corner of the world performed by North Coast Dance under the artistic direction of Danny Furlong. This year’s series of performances begins on Friday, Dec. 14, running through Wednesday, Dec. 18. The Nutcracker probably has been done more times than any ballet in history and there is only so much innovation a choreographer can introduce when mounting a traditional version. Beyond the story of Clara and the prince and the rat king, it is the performances that make the whole shebang click or not.        Furlong is known for his sharp eye in bringing stellar talent from the Bay Area to fill some of the principal roles, along with coaxing big performances from his company members, apprentices and younger students. The Nutcracker is really one big party with its own hierarchy, with dancers advancing year by year to more challenging roles. This year all bets are on instructor Nancy Call’s Level Five ballet students, who are one notch away from apprenticeship in the company. In the spring, these preteens, still new to pointe work, were lovely in the Fairy Variations, from the Sleeping Beauty Ballet. It is an exquisite moment in a young ballerina’s life, when the grace and strength of approaching womanhood is so delicate yet ardently expressed. Should be dazzling. North Coast Dance presents the Nutcracker at The Arkley Center for the Performing Arts, 412 G St., Eureka. On Friday, Dec. 14, the ticket includes an opening night reception at 6:30 p.m. followed by the performance at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, is a special 4 p.m. matinee, with cookies and a chance to meet the cast. Performances continue on Sunday, Dec. 16, with a 2 p.m. matinee, and on Tuesday, Dec. 18, and Wednesday, Dec. 19, at 7 p.m. Adults $20, children $12. For tickets call (707) 4421956 or go to www. The Saturday before Christmas the Trinity Ballet Academy of McKinleyville returns with its seasonal show, A Christmas Star, at the Eureka High Auditorium. Academy director Greta Leverett has been producing Christmas ballets in Humboldt County since 2000, after a career in Los Angeles, where she performed with the Anaheim Ballet.  A Christmas Star weaves together variations from the Nutcracker with Leverett’s own Dances of Noel into an original story about a young girl’s dreams that harken back to the first Christmas. It’s a warm way to celebrate the dark days of winter. Trinity Ballet Academy presents A Christmas Star, Saturday, Dec, 22, at 3 p.m. at the Eureka High Auditorium, 1915 J Street. Call the studio at 839-1816 for information about purchasing tickets. Tickets, also, available at the door the day of the show, doors open at 2:30 p.m.

A Better Drum Circle You’ve spent time in the Humboldt nation. You know that percussion, when allowed in public spaces, is a magnet for even more percussion. Surely, you’ve seen these gatherings of spontaneous musicians produce harmonious, uplifting community and, at other times, be a cacophonous earsore. It depends on who’s feeling most confident that day. Choose your drum circles wisely. If you don’t want to take a chance, we’ve got some pros comin’ to town. For centuries now, the Royal Dancers and Drummers of Burundi have unified rhythm, passing down technique and tradition to subsequent generations. The group has provided the soundtrack for many a significant event in the small, landlocked central African nation — the enthronement of kings, birth celebrations, funerals. You know, like our Army band, but not so stiff. The drums are tied to the land they come from. Larger drums — known as “ingoma” — are

made from hollowed out tree trunks with skin stretched over them. As world music gained the attention of Western ears in the ’60s, the Royal Dancers and Drummers ventured abroad, spreading the “Burundi beat” worldwide. They appeared on “The Jungle Line,” a song on Joni Mitchell’s 1975 album The Hissing of Summer Lawns (though they were credited as the “warrior drums of Burundi.” Not very PC, Joni). In 1982 they were an integral part of the spirit that the first WOMAD (World of Music, Arts and Dance) festival was organized around. The event — founded by Peter Gabriel, among others — was intended to simultaneously present the earth’s many musical forms, and brought further prominence to world music in the West. Need that beat? You can catch the drummers on Thursday, Nov. 15 at 8 p.m. at HSU’s Van Duzer Theatre. Tickets are $45/$15 for HSU students. For more info, go to — Andrew Goff

Top 10 Movember Music Makers Alert: Whether you’ve been hip to it or not, for over a decade the 11th month of the year has been rechristened Movember and been dedicated to the growth of male upper lip facial pubes. Now you know. Known as “mustaches,” these unfortunate fashion statements are cultivated in an effort to raise awareness for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer. If you’d care to see some mustaches in the wild locally, this Friday, Mov. 16, at Jambalaya there will be a Mustache Karaoke Dance Party starting at 8 p.m. This is both an announcement for stachecionados and a warning for stacheophobes. Should you attend, know this: a representative from the North Coast Journal will be in attendance and will enforce performance of the following songs made famous by musical mustache trendsetters, who are mostly from the ’70s for some reason: Freddie Mercury (Queen), “We Are The Champions” (You might be tempted to attempt “Bohemian Rhapsody” but, for the last time, that is a very, very bad karaoke song that always devolves into chaos. Stop.) Ringo Starr, “You’re Sixteen” (Really reinforcing some mustache stereotypes

there, Richard.) David Crosby (CSN&Y), “Teach Your Children” ( … to not grow mustaches.) John Oates (Hall & Oates), “Kiss on My List” (… as soon as you shave, Selleck.) Jim Croce, “Bad Bad Leroy Brown” (Coincidently, all people named Leroy have mustaches. Fact.) George Michael, “Father Figure” (’Cuz dads are really the only people mustaches are ever acceptable on.) Derek Smalls (Spinal Tap), “Big Bottom” (Possible ad libbed lyrical addition: “The bigger the mustache, the surer the hot flash.” Might need work. Your choice.) Little Richard, “Tutti Frutti” (Pass.) James Hetfield (Metallica), “Fade To Black” (Accompany this performance by dyeing your mustache on stage. Darker, of course.) Frank Zappa, “???” (Man, if the evening’s KJ (Chris Clay!) has any Zappa in his A-Z book, we’ll be surprised. Maybe just do some Village People. The biker was bushy.) There. Get through all that and you can claim this was an official mustache party. Tickets are $5 and proceeds benefit Six Rivers Planned Parenthood. For more info, head to — Andrew Goff

SKYFALL. The makers of the Bond franchise don’t have to reinvent the wheel. As long as they give us some ripping action scenes, sexy ladies, a few clever one-liners and a memorable villain we’ll all dutifully stream into the theater. (I suspect that allegiance to the series, rather than the depth and quality of this latest installment, fueled last weekend’s big box office numbers). And Skyfall certainly delivers all the delicious trappings we’ve come to want and expect. Thing of it is, it also neatly deconstructs the James Bond character and the mythology surrounding him before setting us up, at movie’s end, for a new beginning. The opening finds Bond (Daniel Craig) in Istanbul, attempting to mop up an operation gone very bad. Multiple MI6 operatives lie dead or dying, and a critical computer drive has fallen into the wrong hands. In a rare moment of compassion and internal conflict, Bond is forced to abandon his wounded comrades and pursue the stolen drive, per the seemingly dispassionate orders of M (Judi Dench). A thrilling motorcycle chase sequence ensues, through the Grand Bazaar and onto the top of a speeding train. Bond and a nameless assassin lock in mortal combat while greenish field agent Eve (Naomie Harris) watches from a distance.

Ordered by M to attempt a shot at the villain, despite the risk, Eve hits Bond instead. His “death” is made public, and he secretly enters a period of boozy beachside carousing. Meanwhile, back in London, our unknown antagonist uses the contents of the purloined drive (real identities of agents undercover inside terrorist cells) to harass and blackmail MI6 and M specifically. A grizzled Bond reappears, drawn by an allegiance even he doesn’t fully understand, to track and kill the villains. He also confronts M for her seeming nonchalance at ordering the shot that might have killed him. This establishes one of the central themes of the narrative. M, surrogate mother to all of her agents in the field, is continually forced to weigh the good of the many against the good of the few. In this case, the scales came down against Bond, perhaps her most beloved, most difficult adoptive son. This notion of dysfunctional parenthood informs every aspect of the plot as it moves forward. Bond’s investigation leads him to Shanghai and Macau, and into a few scrapes and welcoming beds along the way. He discovers that his nemesis is a former Double-0 agent with even bigger mommy issues than his own. As played by the tremendous Javier Bardem, Silva is a brilliant, malignant, blond-haired dandy. Bardem is one of the most recognizable stars in cinema, but he somehow manages to transform himself time and time again. Here he carries himself with bemused, swishing menace and creates the most memorable Bond villain of them all. Silva used to be M’s chosen one and, when tested, proved he would sooner die than show disloyalty. But death eluded him, despite his best efforts. Left out in the cold, he began building a complex, ingenious revenge plot against the mother who abandoned him. This plot drives Bond and M closer together and eventually to a fiery standoff at Bond’s boyhood home in the Scottish highlands.

Movie Times Film times reflect the most current listings as of Tuesday afternoon. As schedules at individual theaters sometimes change, we recommend calling ahead to avoid any inconvenience. big-budget Hollywood fantasy based on the first novel in Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy. This sucker was a dud at the box office, hence no film trilogy, but the polar bear fight is pretty sweet. PG13. 113m. 7 p.m. The Humboldt County Library’s Native American Heritage Month Film Series continues Tuesday with a free screening of Geronimo: An American Legend (1993), starring Gene Hackman, Wes Studi, Robert Duvall and a pre-famous Matt Damon. PG13. 115m. 6:30 p.m. Digging out change for the meter — Daniel Craig as Bond, James Bond.

More than any previous Bond movie, M is presented as a primary character. She is initially easy to dismiss as icy and calculating. But as the story moves on and the conflicts continue to compound, Dench expertly portrays M as a tough lady with a nearly impossible job. She has to take individual responsibility for not only the lives of her agents (whom she sees as family, we find out), but also for the security and wellbeing of Great Britain. It’s a pretty tall order, and we see M as a woman finally starting to show the strain attendant to the job. There are scenes, late in the movie, when she lets her guard down, revealing a depth and vulnerability heretofore absent from her character. And as much as Craig’s Bond continues to be a broad-shouldered thug in brilliant suits, Skyfall continues an arc established in Casino Royale (2006). Like M, who for all intents and purposes is his mother, Bond is a complex, troubled man with a very difficult job. He can throw himself into the violence and womanizing, but here we get an insight into the notion that he might be doing it to avoid confronting his own vulnerability. Cinematically, director Sam Mendes brings this home (pardon the pun) by staging the climax at Bond’s family estate. Bond and M are forced into a very intimate defense of their lives, with their estranged, would-be family member (Silva) as the aggressor. The climax feels a little rushed, almost tacked on after the painstaking build-up. But it hardly matters. The narrative thread of Skyfall is the most effective and deceptively simple of any of the Bond movies. It’s couched in such

exciting action sequences that one might not even notice that by the third act, Bond’s character has been exposed, completely deconstructed and then elegantly reassembled as a stronger, more focused version of himself. Mendes serves this up to us in a clever closing sequence, staged and shot in a style straight from the Connery era. It’s a fascinating coda: Bond back from the dead and the franchise functionally rebooted. PG13. 143m. —John J. Bennett

Orderly and Humane: The Expulsion of the Germans after the Second World War

Movies and domestic propaganda in the 1940s  put an understandably noble face on Allied efforts  in World War II. It was only in the decades afterward  that some of the morally questionable and transparently brutal counterevidence emerged: not just the  Holocaust and Japanese Army atrocities, but the British  firebombing of undefended Dresden, the American  terror bombing of civilian Tokyo, the deadly irradiating  of Nagasaki, to name the most prominent. By the  1960s, war novels by American veterans were revealing  unflattering memories. But in today’s soundbite history, World War II has  reverted to the purity of The Last Good War fought by  The Greatest Generation. The truth as it still emerges is  a great deal more complicated for what one historian  calls the number one “multicide” in human history,  with a minimum of 66 million dead. And the death toll  did not end with the end of the war. Historian R.M. Douglas writes in compelling detail  about a little known set of events: At war’s end the  Allies began “the largest forced population transfer —  and perhaps the greatest single movement of peoples  — in human history.” Some 12 to 14 million Germanspeaking civilians, most of them women and children,  were extracted from their homes in eastern Europe  and sent to Germany “amidst the ruins of the Reich, to  fend for themselves as best they could.” Some were transported in locked train freight cars,  scenes that we know from Nazi treatment of Jews,  and some were held in concentration camps, including  Auschwitz. Starvation, disease and abuse resulted in  half a million to a million deaths. Douglas explicitly states there is no legitimate  comparison or equivalence to the Holocaust, but  some of the Holocaust’s victims saw a moral parallel.  An Auschwitz survivor viewed with shame the silence  that surrounded these events. “We used to console  ourselves by saying ‘only the Germans are capable of  such things.’” German speakers were expelled and their property  confiscated largely at the behest of host countries  (Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Poland) because they  wouldn’t be tolerated by their majority populations,  though no evidence was offered for this claim. The  massive transfers — or what more recently would be  called ethnic cleansings — quickly turned into bureaucratic and international nightmares. Douglas relies on  verifiable sources to describe these expulsions within  the context of the relevant and tangled history of Europe, especially the legacies of World War I. They bear  directly on the 1990s ethnic violence in the Balkans,  and aspects of this story are way too reminiscent of  the recent Iraq occupation. This is an absorbing and eye-opening account, an  educational astringent and an antidote to the oversimplified and self-satisfied cliches about World War II  that constitute the current conventional wisdom.   — William Kowinski

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction.

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call PRIME PACIFIC at (707) 468-5300 Ext. 11 [telephone message recording] or you may can call PRIME PACIFIC at (707) 468-5300 Ext. 10 and talk to a person directly. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information (Ext. 11). THE BEST WAY TO VERIFY POSTPONEMENT INFORMATION IS TO ATTEND THE SCHEDULED SALE. The mortgagee or beneficiary is not required to give notice under CA Civil Code Section 2923.5.

Grimm’s Law: The Phoenician Connection By Barry Evans


rimm’s Law was a breakthrough in the young science of linguistics when Jacob Grimm and his fellow Dane, Rasmus Rask, first formulated it in 1822. (We know Jacob and his brother Wilhelm for their collections of European folk stories that — in their cleaned-up versions — have kept Disney in business for decades.) The law codified the first systematic sound change discovered in linguistics, addressing the differences between consonants in Germanic languages (such as English) and their Latin equivalents. The predecessor of Germanic languages, Proto-Germanic, is one of the many daughter languages — Latin is another — of Proto-IndoEuropean, spoken by nomadic Yamnaya people around 5,000 years ago in the Balkans-Black Sea region. Specifically, Grimm’s Law concerns consonants. It says that the original Proto-Indo-European “voiceless stops” regularly and systematically changed to Proto-Germanic “fricatives.” Easier to demonstrate than explain: • Latin p becomes English f: Latin pater becomes English father • Latin t becomes English th: Latin tres becomes English three • Latin k becomes English h: Latin centum becomes English hundred (and, this being Humboldt County, Latin cannabis is cognate with hemp) Note that the p, t and k sound “hard” compared to their f, th and h equivalents, because those “voiceless stops” involve an actual break in airflow. Say them, noticing how your lips momentarily block the p, your tongue blocks the t, while the k is blocked by the opening to your windpipe, your glottis. On the other hand, the f, th and h are “fricatives” — air flowing out experiences friction, but not an actual stop. (Try it!) Linguists are only now coming come up with

a convincing reason for Grimm’s Law. The puzzle is that Grimm’s sound changes aren’t universal; Proto-Germanic is the only daughter language of the original parent to exhibit this “voicelessstop-to-fricative” switch. In fact, we can generalize the law to say that, if in other Indo-European languages there is, for example, p, you’ll find an equivalent f in Germanic. So that while we have (non-Germanic Indo-European) Ancient Greek pous, Latin pes, Sanskrit pada, Russian pod and Latvian peda, we see (in Germanic languages) English foot, Frisian foet, German fuss, Icelandic fotur and Danish fod. Why? What happened to the Germanic languages that didn’t happen to the rest of Indo-European ones? Maybe we should blame, or thank, the Phoenicians. The idea is that when speakers of a Semitic language (with lots of those sibilant f, th and h sounds) learned Proto-Indo-European from native speakers, they spoke it like virtually all adult foreign language learners: with an accent. In this case, with their own “hissy” accent, which their children then learned — and etcetera. So unlike the rest of the daughter languages, which were uniformly transmitted “native-speakingparent to child,” Proto-Germanic appears to have undergone at least one “parent-speaking-aforeign-language to child” transmittal. Phoenicians are the mostly likely “secondlanguage-transmittal” candidates, because they were the best navigators, traders and explorers at the time when Proto-Germanic originated (between 2,000 and 3,000 years ago). We know Phoenicians gave us our alphabet (Field Notes, 11/19/2009). Now it seems fitting, if the theory’s right, that they’re also responsible for most of our consonants. l Barry Evans ( lies awake worrying if his ancestry is pronounced Seltic or Keltic.
