Editor: The wonderful headline “Schoolpocalypse Averted” (Nov. 8) reminded me of a culinary armageddon I witnessed in my days as a College of the Redwoods employee. I noticed that the students who lived in the dorms were only given the option of eating at the school cafeteria. Most of them had all of their financial aid money tied up in their apartment and their CR dining (debit) card, and were forced to eat the tasty but unhealthy food the cafeteria served. Obviously they need access to a grocery store on campus. I spoke with Dr. Dana Maher, a professor of sociology and sexuality, about what she thought could be done. She mentioned that Humboldt State University had some students who fought for their right to better food. She said that from a sociological perspective, the food choices available at a school reflect the social class of the students who attend. She told me that I should contact the student government in my efforts to


reform the current lack of services. Some of the great ideas she had were installing one community kitchen for all the dorm residents, and using vegetables grown at the CR farm in the cafeteria. In conclusion, let’s be more hospitable to those who come to CR for an education. Curtis Schacherer, Eureka

Grateful to Humboldt Editor: As Thanksgiving again approaches, with rain and leaves falling, our minds dwell on gratitude for many things. For us, our thankfulness for living in Humboldt County has deepened evermore. About six weeks ago, our lives were forever changed by a tragic collision that occurred on Old Arcata Road (“Surviving,” Nov. 15). Within minutes, and continuing unending as we write, our families, friends, and the entire community have reached out to us, lent strength, supported us when we struggled, and celebrated our ongoing recovery. We have never felt more connected to our community, never more honored

and humbled by our loving neighbors, and never more proud to call Humboldt our home. From our families, to our friends, coworkers and fellow club members, to local businesses, radio, builders, restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, and retailers — our community has rallied behind the fallen. We marvel at the scope of human generosity, and we offer our sincerest thank you to this wonderful community. Jessie Hunt and Matt Johnson, Eureka Terri Vroman Little and Bryan Little, Eureka

[T]rail Update No. 5


YYYYEEEEESSSSS!!! That was my reaction as I left the North Coast Railroad Authority board meeting in Eureka last Wednesday. The board had just voted unanimously to accept a report from three of its directors, the ad hoc Humboldt Bay Rail Corridor Committee, and directed staff to bring back a resolution supporting “a broad-based Humboldt County community coalition to advocate for public and private funds with which to restore the Humboldt Bay Rail Corridor, including the provision of trail development therein.” The NCRA directors were so impressed with the extraordinary effort by the committee, local agencies and organizations, and individuals that they agreed to meet again in December in Eureka to move this plan forward. This committee of three actually did what they set out to do: To gather all the facts in one place; to listen to the various, sometimes conflicting, voices in the community; to make findings and recommendations that show us a path forward to get what we all want without stepping on projects being advanced by others. And to do it all within a timeframe announced in advance — by the NCRA meeting in Eureka Nov. 14. This is the fifth column this year I am writing not on behalf of the Journal, but as an advocate for the Bay Trail, a safe, off-highway bike and pedestrian path for

Highway 101, building a trail, and clearing and repairing tracks for an excursion train. But we have to have priorities. (One of the NCRA directors said, “We can’t all get through the door at the same time. We have to take turns.”) Here are some key recommendations from the report: • NCRA should state its support for a broad-based community coalition to advocate for the investment of public and private funds to restore the Humboldt Bay rail corridor, in whole or in part, clearly incorporating trail development into such restoration generally consistent with NCRA trail policy; • NCRA should prioritize rail infrastructure restoration and trail development in the Eureka-Arcata corridor to more clearly align its objectives with those of Caltrans’ U.S. 101 Corridor Improvement Project. [Actually, it’s HCAOG’s project.]

• NCRA should also prioritize rail restoration in the Arcata to Samoa corridor in order to facilitate the restoration of passenger excursion service. How do we find the money to repair the railroad bed, to stop it from further erosion and to actually maintain it until rail service comes back when the NCRA is broke? By combining it with the goals of every other public agency and private organizations we’ve been talking to these past eight months: Bay [T]rail Advocates want the trail. Timber Heritage Association wants an excursion train. Caltrans wants, needs a safe bike and pedestrian path. Coastal Conservancy and Coastal Commission want that critical link in the California Coastal Trail. The cities of Eureka and Arcata want greater, safer connectivity and healthy recreational choices. The chambers of commerce and tourism industry should want Eureka to become a major destination point for bicycle tourism.

This is where priorities come in. The NCRA committee found that “limited exceptions to the NCRA’s trail policy may be practical” to facilitate the trail and to attract those dollars we need to repair and maintain the railroad prism. One example given was the Eureka Slough Bridge. What we’d all like to do — those who want to see both a trail and a rail excursion train — is to cantilever the bike and pedestrian trail alongside the bridge. But since that is a very expensive project and the train isn’t ready to run all the way to Eureka yet, can we use the bridge for the trail until rail service returns? I have an idea. Let’s demonstrate that we can all work together for common

goals. The NCRA board is making a special effort to return to Humboldt to adopt a resolution implementing key elements of the report Dec. 12. Let’s show them that this community is more united than divided. Let’s all show up and tell them we support the committee and then let’s get to work to make things happen.

These two units, joined by a garage wall, became the site of discord after the family in front complained that the occupants in back were running a large marijuana grow. The opaqued garage windows on the back unit were one of the first clues, the neighbors said. Photo by Carrie Peyton Dahlberg

A Home, Lost

Tenant says she was told to move after complaining about a grow next door By Carrie Peyton Dahlberg


he 2-year-old toddling in front of Nickelodeon, one pudgy first wrapped around the remote as her daddy packs boxes, took her first steps inside this small, plain duplex in McKinleyville. It’s where her parents celebrated her first birthday and first Christmas, where her older sister had friends so close they looked on it as a second home. But now, in the days before Thanksgiving, the family is packing to leave, given notice by a landlord who insists they are liars. He says he would never sanction a marijuana grow. They say they began complaining back in spring that the other half of the duplex, connected to theirs by a shared garage wall,

had been turned into a grow house. The garage windows were covered first, they said, then came construction sounds, and then the smell, so strong it was nearly gagging in their garage. “It was such a huge amount, and it was not 215; it was way above the 215 amount,” Laura Cline said earlier this month. She worried about electrical fires and about robbers who might mistake one look-alike unit for the other. She worried that she and her fiancé and their two girls might be told to move, to make way for more lucrative tenants. Cline had heard that the tenants next door were paying $2,400 or $2,500 a month — far more than her family’s $1,400 monthly rent. In April, she took her fears to Cathy Mac-

Mullin, who once had managed that property for its owner, Brian Lawrence. MacMullin confirms that she wrote a letter to Lawrence, telling him some of Cline’s concerns, including that she had been hesitant to come forward because she had two small children and nowhere to move to. “She was fearful to talk to him,” MacMullin said last week. “She didn’t know what to do.” MacMullin figured a letter would protect herself, Cline and Lawrence. “I was telling him, ‘Hey, you’ve got a problem.’ ” For his part, Lawrence says, “I’m very upset over this whole thing. Obviously, this is someone who believes certain things that are not true.” He asked to speak about the matter off the record, and the Journal declined. “Has she presented proof to you of any of these allegations? What I understand is she’s accusing me of renting to people who grow marijuana, and that is not true. I personally have never allowed that,” he said. Lawrence ended the phone call before saying why he’d asked Cline to move, what he had done after receiving MacMullin’s letter, or whether he found any evidence of a grow on his property. Then he had his attorney write the Journal’s publisher, claiming the conversation was off the record and saying he had not given permission to have his name used. A couple of days later the attorney, Chris Hamer, emailed again, this time saying that whoever was talking to the Journal  had lied to try to avert eviction for “her bad actions as a tenant.” Told of the assertion, Cline burst out laughing. “What bad actions would that be? Asking to get my toilet fixed?” She said she took her worries to MacMullin because she was trying to protect her family. Although Lawrence initially implied the

Journal needs permission to use his name, no one needs permission to look at county property records, which show Lawrence owns the duplex at 1794 Edeline Ave. in McKinleyville, where Cline and her fiancé Mike Palmer are now packing to leave Unit A. No one needs permission to drive by his other properties, including a nearly identical duplex on Sutter Road in McKinleyville, where the back unit’s garage windows are covered with an opaque lining. The lining looks just like the stuff that went up soon after the new tenants moved into Unit B at the Edeline duplex, Cline says. Cline and her fiancé, Mike Palmer, say Unit B is vacant now. No one answered the door when a reporter knocked, and a gap in the mini-blinds showed an empty-looking slice of living room, with what might have been boards or plywood or construction along one wall. “This is just horrible for our family,” Cline says. MacMullin has tried to help her find other places to live, but Cline and Palmer decided instead to move to Seattle, where they can get help from Cline’s family and be closer to her older girl’s father. She thinks the notice to move was so unfair that she ought to get some extra compensation, and she’s been trying to make that case to Lawrence’s current property manager. “We’ve lived here a long time, 2½ years,” she says. “We’ve always paid our rent on time.” Cline describes herself as “marijuana friendly,” but says there ought to be limits, that families shouldn’t lose out to growers who can pay higher rents. Lawrence insists that isn’t what happened here. Who is right? It might become clearer after new tenants move into units A and B at 1794 Edeline. l • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Nov. 22, 2012

The Logger Reborn We’ve been hearing rumblings about what’s going on at the historic Logger Bar out in Blue Lake. The venerable establishment kitty-corner from Dell’Arte changed hands and new owner Kate Martin (right) has been hard at work refurbishing with a crew of volunteers including Bad Bob Ornelas. Official announcement of a ribboncutting and re-opening scheduled for this Saturday: Blue Lake’s Logger Bar, first opened in 1899, will reopen under new management with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 17. New owner Kate Martin has transformed the local watering hole with new paint, new fixtures, and more seating to give it the feel of a cozy neighborhood bar. She’ll be open seven days a week. Martin says she is keeping on display the historic logging memorabilia installed by previous owner Eugene Supko. Dozens of logging photographs from many decades


will be back on the walls. Saws, hardhats, and logging gear donated by Logger Bar clientele over the years will be on display again, and the newly polished steam donkey will continue to heat the bar. In a uniquely creative move, Martin has inlaid giant round saw blades into the newly stripped and finished wood floors. Close to 100 volunteers have put in countless hours to get the Logger cleaned, painted and refurbished in time for the Nov. 17, grand re-opening. Martin says,

“Without the help of neighbors and friends I’d be up shit creek.” At one time there were three bars within two blocks of each other in Blue Lake — The Logger, Walt’s Friendly Tavern and the Mad River Rose. In the 1970s this “terrible triangle” drew HSU students to Blue Lake on the weekends, and bands like the Robert Cray Band made music. Walt’s closed in the 1980s and is now the Chumayo Spa. The Mad River Rose has been shuttered for years. But for more than 100

years the Logger has never closed. Supko bought the bar from Sid Madjarac in 1994. For many years The Logger was a hangout for locals working in the timber industry, but the decline of logging in the region brought about a gradual changeover in the bar’s patrons. Audiences, artists and students from the neighboring Dell’Arte International made it a favorite spot to relax after rehearsals and performance nights. A group of women musicians and songwriters even named themselves “The Brendas” after long-term Logger bartender Brenda. Martin hopes that her bar will attract a cross-section of the local population. The bar will feature a variety of beers, a full bar, a piano, ping pong and a quarter pool table right where it’s always been. She’ll be open daily, with longer hours on weekends. The Logger Bar at 510 Railroad Ave. in Blue Lake will be open Thursday through Saturday, noon until 2 a.m. and Sunday through Wednesday, noon to midnight. It can be reached at 707-668-5000. ● READ FULL POSTS AND SEE PHOTOS AT • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, NOV. 22, 2012


The Light on the Bluff Their compound is razed, but memories of the Jesus people linger By Heidi Walters


he young man stands at the edge of Table Bluff, gazing west into one of the greatest of romances: Rumpled ocean kissing moody sky, windembraced, fog-enswirled, sun-glinted. His head, too, is aswirl, with passionate thought. Beside him is a giant cross. Behind, beyond the path he has just wandered, are decrepit white-washed buildings, a water tower, vegetable gardens abounding with Swiss chard, and a lot full of shabby cars. Closer, right at his back, a lighthouse looms, its flashing white light poised to pierce fog, dusk and night. ❖

Table Bluff is a blank. Cleared, empty. That compound of old white buildings and tall water tower, on the west end where Table Bluff Road turns sharply north along a row of shaggy cypress before dropping down to the South Spit? Some of it there since the 1890s? It’s all gone now: The last buildings were picked apart and hauled away and the land scraped clean in midOctober by Bureau of Land Management contractors. With the buildings went the last physical reminders on the land of one of the more curious — and possibly most influential — periods on Table Bluff. Not the time of the lighthouse, the Navy wireless station or even the wartime beach patrol outpost and lookout, important as those were. We’re talking about later, when hundreds of wandering young people swarmed in

by junker or thumbed rides to occupy the abandoned government structures and, many quickly found, to be saved if that was their destiny. Those who stayed became a major force in the Jesus People Movement that swept the country in the 1970s, and they built a powerful denomination of bornagain Christianity, Gospel Outreach, that would leap from the bluff, scatter and plant itself throughout the world. ❖ It’s June 28, 1971, and the young man — he is 24 — looks of his time: skinny, bearded, on-the-road. A recent dropout of Rutgers graduate school in photochemistry — he doesn’t need to spend three years with his head stuck in mathematics books — he’s wandered 10,000 miles around the U.S and Canada. If he could just find a nice, quiet enough place, he might figure out where he belongs in the world, and what he believes. Four months have gone by. Home, Portland, Ore., is now a day away. The hitchhikers he picked up in Fortuna the day before brought him here. He’s been fed. He’s rested. His curtain-windowed Ford Falcon station wagon, which he’d parked the day before in the lot that once was a tennis court, is packed — frying pan, granola, sprouts, roof rack, bicycle. Ready to move on. ❖

The mere

geological happenstance of this grassy plateau called Table Bluff was the reason for most everything that happened upon it. Jonathan Clark, among the first wave of settlers in 1850, found the bluff top lushly suitable for his dairy cows, according to early newspaper accounts. Others, including bizarre hunter/self-promoter Seth Kinman, saw more benefits. Kinman was the first settler to officially buy land in Humboldt, after Congress enacted the Humboldt Land

District in 1858. He chose 80 acres on Table Bluff, about a mile and a half east of its ocean-plummeting edge. He built a home, moved there with his mother and children (his wife had died), put some cows out and later ran a hotel-saloon. Kinman was a traveling showman who claimed he’d killed 800 grizzlies. Sometimes he hired indigenous people to haul his animal kills, as he writes in his memoir, and other times, on vigilante raids with other settlers, he killed — and sometimes scalped — them. He sold meat to soldiers and their families at Fort Humboldt and made chairs from bears and elk horns and gave them to presidents. Recipients included Lincoln — for whom, reported the New York Times and others at the time, he once played a tune on the mule-skull fiddle he made. In his memoirs, the savage mountain man describes retreating to Table Bluff to get away from the increasing danger from “troublesome” Indians down in the river and bay bottomlands.





Table Bluff



When the first Humboldt harbor lighthouse, built in 1856 on the south spit, succumbed to earthquakes and surf, the federal government saw Table Bluff as the perfect site for a new lighthouse. The federal Lighthouse Service had to convince rancher Clark’s son William (a Eureka politician and businessman) to sell a part of the bluff ranch for less than he wanted for it, and finally did so by threatening to take it by condemnation, reported Ralph and Janetta Shanks in their book Lighthouses and Lifeboats on the Redwood Coast. A deed on record at the county courthouse shows the sale went through on Oct. 22, 1891. The lighthouse, a fog signal building, equipment outbuildings and houses for the lighthouse keeper’s family and two assistant keepers’ families were built, and in 1892 the light went on. The Navy put up wireless radio towers to send compass bearings and messages to ships. In the 1920s the government bought more land from adjacent ranchers. In 1926, a tennis court went in.

During World War II, the government set up a coastal lookout on the bluff, and started a horse-mounted beach patrol. It built a new barracks and some couples quarters to house everyone. After the war, everyone left but the lightkeepers. The government moved them into the newer buildings and tore down the original Victorian Italianate structures, including the one attached to the lighthouse. When the lighthouse was automated and the fog signal station shut down in 1953, they left too. What happened next is hazy in the history books. Cheryl Seidner, former chair of the Wiyot Tribe, grew up in the 1950s and ’60s on the tribe’s old reservation on the bluff, about a half mile from the lighthouse property (and a mile from where the new reservation sits today). She remembers playing with kids whose mother was Wiyot and who lived on the lighthouse property — possibly as caretakers. They’d scramble along stairs cut into the cliff to get to the beach, minding the stinging nettles at the bottom where there was a spring. And they’d run around on top of the bluff. “We were down there a lot,” she said by phone recently. “We played in the trees, jumping from tree to tree. We always tried to jump on the lighthouse and slide down. The trees were close together — you could walk from one to the other through the branches — and we would walk on the branches to get to the lighhouse. But we would never quite make it.” When those friends moved away another family moved in who held a vacation bible school in the summer, Seidner remembers. “I really loved it,” she said. In the winter, the family held a church service every other week that Seidner’s family attended. Seidner went away to business college in San Francisco in 1968, when she was 18. When she returned three years later, the Jesus people had arrived and the Lighthouse Ranch charismatic Christian commune was in full swing. continued on next page

continued from previous page And what better place than a flat-topped, wind-blasted, isolated redoubt above ocean, bay and salty river-mouthed bottomland to stake out a command post for Jesus? To gather in the scattered light and focus it into a beam to pierce fog, hearts, minds? ❖ Standing on the bluff, he mulls familiar ground: There’s got to be something bigger than himself, larger than the materialistic yearnings of his parents’ generation. His science mind has been leaning toward the pagan, toward nature: God is in the trees and the grass and in all things. He’d been sharing this philosophy eagerly with his new friends ever since he’d arrived the day before on this land’s end near Loleta, a dozen miles south of Eureka. And they’d kept responding, yes, but don’t you want to meet the creator of those things? Talk to God directly? Praise Jesus! They all kept saying it, like it was just another breath or heartbeat.



None of this

would have happened if Ken Smith hadn’t bought the land. One day in late 1969, Smith, pastor of a Christian youth ministry called Zion Lodge near Eugene, Ore., was talking to a friend about the hippies. How could they have a bigger impact on all these kids running around loose in the world, hitchhiking and doing drugs and sleeping around? Zion Lodge was a halfway house, ranch-style, that had lassoed a few of these kids who wanted to change their lives. Smith taught a gospel that was basic, nondenominational — the early writings of Jesus and his disciples spelled out, as Smith puts it, in “hippie language.” “My friend mentioned that he knew a guy down in northern California who had a lighthouse full of hippies and didn’t know what to do with it,” said Smith, who is 80 now, by phone recently from his home in Kona, Hawaii, where he runs Trinity Fellowship International. When Smith went to check it out, the majesty of the bluff wasn’t what impressed him. He saw available space. Room enough to build a new ministry. The run down buildings were even, promisingly, already stocked with at least 50 hippies who, though industriously making driftwood furniture to sell in town, were


also doing drugs and were obviously, in Smith’s mind, in need of saving. He bought it and named it Lighthouse Ranch. Most of the squatters left. Soon about 70 new hippies moved in who were seeking what Smith was offering — rehabilitation, hard work, Jesus. Smith tells stories the way you want a minister to: Good whups evil and it’s often a hoot. From the ranch’s early days, his favorites include the day the Hell’s Angels came to chase the Christians off and got stuck there in the miserable cold with a broken bike; the near-miss of a young man leaning into the wind at the bluff’s edge; the astonishing shut-eyed dance of a man normally hobbled with arthritis. His hippies mostly lived on donated food and potatoes gleaned from a field below the bluff, had chapel in the evenings and invited the townspeople to join in on Saturdays. On Sundays, whoever wanted to would pile into a big bus and go into Eureka to attend services at Jim


Durkin’s Deliverence Temple, where, Smith said, “the hippie kids got all fired up.” ❖ The young man takes in the dramatic beauty all around him again. The ocean in front of him. The languid Eel River Valley to his left. South Spit, its tip shrouded in fog, stretching long to his right between the ocean and Humboldt Bay. And behind him that comforting, orderly cluster of white structures and, closer, a lighthouse — a lighthouse! — literally piercing the growing dark, guiding, pulling in. “What a romantic God is,” he thinks, chuckling to himself. He shrugs — what the heck? And he lifts his head and says to the sky, “Jesus, if you’re really who these people say you are, then I have to know you. I give up. If you’re the truth, here I am. You can have me.” ❖

Jim Durkin didn’t care much for

hippies, at first. A realtor and evangelical pastor, his life was fairly straitlaced, say people who knew him (he died in 1996). One day, the story goes — as retold in newspapers and by family — he was in his real estate office when some Jesus freaks walked in, looking for a place to rent for a coffee house ministry. They had long hair, long beards and big wooden crosses hanging around their necks. Durkin pretended he had nothing for them. But later he called them back, and soon they were set up in a place on Clark and B streets in Eureka. A synergy developed between the coffee house hippies and the Lighthouse Ranch hippies — who all converged at Deliverence Temple, where there was drumming, speaking in tongues and the charismatic Durkin’s sermons. And Durkin started liking them. When Smith, tired of the sandblasting cold wind on the bluff, moved to Hawaii in 1971 to start a new ministry, Durkin took over his payments on Lighthouse Ranch, stepped in

as spiritual leader and appointed ranch coordinators to run the day-to-day affairs. Jim Durkin’s son, also named Jim, was 19 at the time and serving in Vietnam. His mother, Dacie (who died last year), had been telling him in letters about the Lighthouse Ranch, but he’d found a lot of it hard to believe. “Some of Mom’s letters would say, ‘These are hippies who are becoming Christians,’” said Durkin recently by phone. And my attitude was, ‘I don’t think so. I don’t think any hippie would spend any more than five minutes with my father.’” Nor he with them — his father was clean-cut, strict and wore a three-piece suit every day. Jim Durkin Jr., on the other hand, liked the idea of hippies. After a disciplined childhood and the Marines Corps, he was ready to see how a child of the Sixties lived. He doubted, though, that he’d find it at Lighthouse Ranch. “My Mom said it was like a Bible school, and that did not appeal to me in the least bit,” Durkin said. In mid-March 1971, out on leave, he went home and his mom drove him out to Table Bluff. He was shocked: The people here really were hippies. The men had beards and long hair. Some of the women wore pants but many were in long, handmade corduroy

and denim skirts. They spoke of love, acceptance, tolerance. Most surprisingly, to Durkin, they all talked about how much they loved his parents. “About five minutes later I saw this man I knew to be my father walking across the field in a flannel shirt and bib overalls.” His dad was transformed inside, too, Durkin said. It was as if his emotional defenses had come down. Durkin wanted to stay but his dad told him to go finish his obligation to the Marines. When Durkin left the ranch that March, there were about 60 people living there. Five months later, when he got out of the service and returned, there were more than 200. “Somehow, the reputation of the Lighthouse Ranch had got out on the drug trail, in communities around the world where drugs were easy to obtain, and people said, ‘If you ever get to America, to California, to Humboldt County, you can go to the Lighthouse Ranch and they’ll give you a meal and a place to stay,” said Durkin. People came from France, Amsterdam and other far off places. And they weren’t all drug-addled. Already swept up in the spreading Jesus People movement — the hippie religious revival — many newcomers to the ranch were primed for the gospel message. Others were just wanderers, not knowing what they sought. If they stayed, they had to get off drugs, clean up and work. The guys cut their hair and found jobs in town or with the timber companies, adding their pay to the community pot. The younger Durkin, who’d been a chef in the Marines, took over the cooking — much to the relief of the others, recalled a couple of other residents recently, one of whom — Gary Todoroff — said the women “liked to experiment” a bit too much in the kitchen. It was hard sustaining a commune of 200-some people, and the odd jobbers’ incomes weren’t cutting it. Todoroff remembers a “famous” sermon given by Durkin one day, who pointed out the ranch was scraping by on $20 per person per month: “You can’t live on $20 a month. And worse, you can’t give on $20 a month. If you’ve committed yourself to living here, you’ve got to get off of any welfare. You can’t be givers if you’re takers.” The commune members started several businesses, including a bakery and donut shop in Eureka, a grape stakes mill in Carcontinued on next page

lotta, a little newspaper called The Gospel Paper, and another called the Tri-City Advertiser that had scriptures scattered into the pages. (Today it’s an ordinary, free porch-slapper called the Tri-City Weekly, owned by Media News Group, parent of the Times-Standard.) A couple of members, including Todoroff, founded the Radiance Media Ministry, which recorded Durkin’s sermons as well as musicians associated with Lighthouse Ranch. But the real work Durkin envisioned, and propelled, was preparing teams of disciples to go out into the world and establish new outposts for preaching the gospel. They scattered through the United States, Europe and Latin America. Gospel Outreach was born. In 1976, in Guatemala, after a devastat-

ing earthquake, a Gospel Outreach relief team was sent to help rebuild, and it established El Verbo, a Gospel Outreach church. Efraín Ríos Montt — who would become president after a military coup a few years later, in 1982 — converted and joined these evangelical born agains. Montt, in his 17-month dictatorship, has been accused of killing thousands of Mayans, of razing whole villages, in an anti-Communist crackdown to wipe out leftists in a decades-long civil war. Some say he relied on fundamentalist relief groups, including El Verbo, to infiltrate villages. This year, at age 85, Montt finally went on trial

on genocide charges. El Verbo, meanwhile, according to its own website, has became a mothership of its own and claims to have converted 15,000 people throughout Latin America. Todoroff and others we talked to who met Montt (but didn’t know him well) shy away from the question — did he kill thousands? He seemed like a gentle man, they say. “It goes counter to all of my experience

down in Guatemala,” said Todoroff. “And Verbo had taken on its own identity” by the time Montt was in control, he added. Today, according to Randall Balmer’s “The Encyclopedia of Evangelicalism,” there are at least 100 Gospel Outreach churches throughout the United States and Germany, Hawaii, Nicaragua and Guatemala. The parent church, according to the Eureka’s church’s website, appears to now only identify with four congregations in the Northwest, all renamed Gospel Outreach Reformational Church — “a name

that reflects both our origins and our growing appreciation of a Reformational understanding of Scripture and the gospel,” notes the site. (Eureka Gospel Outreach Pastor David Sczepanski, an early Lighthouse member, did not respond to requests from the Journal to interview him.) During the growth years, the teams of disciples launched by Pastor Durkin often included newly married couples — and getting married was a goal of many at that time. Celeste Durkin, the younger Jim Durkin’s wife, was 23 when she traveled there in June 1972 from Fresno with a boyfriend who’d been to the ranch before. He was going through a divorce. She was a college dropout. She smoked pot and messed around with the occult and had some bad experiences with a Ouija board. She felt lost, she said, and was searching for a truth. They drove all day and by nightfall were winding along in the dark beside Hookton Slough. “It was terrifying,” she said. “It was dark. I could smell I was getting close to the ocean. We were just driving and driving on this long road, and I didn’t really know where I was going and who I was going to meet. And I’d

never left home before.” At the ranch, her friend went to the men’s dorm and said she could go to the “sisters” dorm — everyone was “brother” and “sister” at the ranch. No thanks, she said, and she curled up in the car under her jacket. “I was out there a few minutes and I felt a presence in the car, a spiritual presence,” she said. It was good — warm and loving feeling. The next morning, when she entered the dorm, everybody ran up to her, asked her name, and told her about Jesus, God’s son, and how he died for her sins and that she could have a personal relationship with this son. That was news to a Catholic-raised girl — and she liked it. The guy she came with didn’t, and eventually left. She met young Jim Durkin a month later, in July. He seemed pushy at first — too eager to find a wife. But a lot of people were then. “Sometimes we had double weddings,” she said. “It was the end times. Everybody thought they were living in the last days, and we really felt we weren’t going to be around very long so we better get on with it. It wasn’t conscious, but we did think the Lord was coming back soon. It was pretty extraor-

dinary times; there was the Vietnam War, rebellion, a lot of change. Bob Dylan and ‘The times they are achangin.’ Nuclear threat. Kennedy assassinated. A lot of unrest.” She and young Jim married later that year, on Nov. 5. (The couple, who live in Eureka, just celebrated their 40th anniversary.) That December, they were dispatched to Coquille, Ore., to start a ministry, and later they were sent to New York where young Jim was the pastor of a (non-hippie) Gospel Outreach church through the 1980s. ❖ He waits, taking in again the beauty all around him, sensing the presence he calls God in the wind, the grass, the trees. Then, wham! He falls to his knees, knocked there by the surprise of it: Now the presence was inside him, in a place he hadn’t even known existed. ❖

not — not everyone who went to the Lighthouse Ranch on Table Bluff wanted to be. Was it all radiance and light, out there in Lighthouse hippie gospel land? No. Some thought Lighthouse Ranch was a cult. Celeste Durkin said her mom and brother, as soon as she finally told them where she was, grabbed a rifle and drove from Fresno to rescue her. They relaxed once they met her friends and future husband. D’Arcy Fallon, a former Lighthouse resident, writes in her memoir, So Late, So Soon, of trying hard to be filled with God, to happily do chores, while chafing under the strict, male-dominated structure that demanded she submit, serve the men, have children. She yearned to live in a real house with her new husband, to not share a bathroom with a hundred other butts and cook for the hordes; he wanted to stay. If you were sick, she writes, you were treated as if you were filled with something “demonic.” There are likely many stories like these, as many as there are tales of salvation.

place to stay and a free meal,” he said. Ken Smith said he noticed it at his ministry in Hawaii, too. Kids were becoming less transparent, less innocent. “They’re more sophisticated now,” he said. “They’re harder to figure out.” After Jim Durkin Sr. died, the ranch fell into disuse. In 2005, Gospel Outreach sold the 5.9 acres it still owned to the state for $1.5 million and used the money to build a new church off of Harris Street in Eureka. The state donated the land to the federal Bureau of Land Management to preserve as public open space. In 2010, the BLM purchased a remaining 2.6 acres on the site owned by Fortuna businessman Patrick

O’Dell for a while. The lighthouse ranch land is surrounded by public preserves — an ecological preserve across the road where a rare lily grows, the South Spit, the Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge. The lighthouse property completes the picture, says Lynda Roush, manager of the BLM’s Arcata field office. The BLM initially intended to preserve all the old structures and create a visitor center there. But Roush said the buildings were too abused by neglect and vandalism — and riddled with asbestos — and in the end the agency decided to raze everything after

consulting with the state historic preservation office. Most of the oldest structures already were gone. The lighthouse tower, which ceased operating in 1975 after new lights were put in at the harbor entrance, had been hauled away in 1987 to Woodley Island. The state dismantled the 57-foot redwood water tower and sent it to the Piedras Blancas Lighthouse museum in San Simeon, where it will be rebuilt. Eventually, the light poles that cross the property — the original road went through there — will be moved back to the edge of the current road, Roush said. And if there’s ever money, maybe a visitor center will go in. ❖

Todoroff — who is our young man standing on the bluff in June of 1972 — told a story recently while wandering on the bluff, reminiscing: A Lighthouse member who’d gone to Los Angeles for the summer faked his death so nobody would try to coerce him to come back. His ruse was discovered when Todoroff and others from the ministry drove to L.A. to try to go to his funeral. There wasn’t one. They called around to morgues, called the guy’s friends — and one had just seen him, alive and well. “There was tremendous pressure to stay with the program,” Todoroff admitted. What kept it from becoming a cult, he said, was that Jim Durkin “always pointed to Jesus Christ.” But the Lighthouse Ranch began to change, as the Jesus People moved on, some slipping into conventional church-going society. In the 1980s, Todoroff said, the ranch became more of a formal training center, a reform school, he said, where parents were known to drop off troubled kids to get straightened out. Durkin said the county court system even sentenced some troublemakers to rehab at the ranch. Durkin said young people who came to the ranch on their own no longer seemed to be seeking a truth. “They were seeking a

On a windless, sunny after-

noon, Gary Todoroff walked along the faint trace of a curving path he built on the bluff 30 years ago. All around on the bare, scraped ground, seedlings were sprouting — the BLM had scattered the seeds of a native species grass mix. The path once went from the main building where everyone gathered to the men’s dorm. He looked around at the empty space where everything had been. Todoroff, who is a professional photographer now, was the ranch’s photographer. He once helped a

PBS film crew shoot a documentary about religion in America that featured Lighthouse Ranch. When the buildings were being torn down last month, he came up and shot some more pictures. “It was like watching the slow death of a friend,” he said. He recalled his first morning here, waking up to sunlight. Someone was playing a flute. People were tending gardens, cooking breakfast. It was the most magical place he’d been. Later that day he had walked to the edge of the bluff, where he had stood by the cross, looked out at the ocean, and spoken

to the sky. Every year now, he goes to that same spot on June 28. He brings a Bible, reads a little, prays. Todoroff walked to the place where the cross used to be, past a rectangle of planks laid in a square over a space that smelled of skunk lair. It was the lighthouse foundation; the state plans to leave it and maybe, someday, if there’s money, put in some interpretive signs. “I am thankful it’s public land,” Todoroff said. And that presence he felt there, so long ago? Was it still here? “He doesn’t live in buildings,” Todoroff

said. “He doesn’t even live in the land. He lives in your heart. And His presence here was in the people who knew Him.” He walked back toward the road, between hoary windbreaks of cypress where little birds were squeaking; a flicker, wafting on stiff orange-feathered wings from one tree to another, cried out sharply. He stepped onto his old path, followed it to the dirt expanse where the main building had been. He walked across the clearing where he’d first parked his old Falcon, the spot that once was a tennis court. And, after a prayer, he drove away. l

to Boston. As a teenager, Dale accompanied his uncle’s Oud playing Lebanese tarabaki drums in restaurants where other relatives belly danced. Legend has it, Dale resurrected the old dance tune when challenged by a fan to play a whole song on just one string. He’d seen his uncle do so playing “Misirlou” on the Oud. He picked up the tempo, incorporating the staccato rhythms of the tarabaki, and made what was essentially a series of Eastern musical scales into a surf music staple: The Beach Boys, The Ventures, The Surfaris and The Trashmen all recorded it. Dale’s initial brush with fame did not last long. Diagnosed with cancer in 1966, he was laid low for a time (“You’ll never hear surf music again,” the line in Jimi Hendrix’s “Third Stone from the Sun,” is a reference to Dale’s retirement), but he fought off the disease and returned to the stage. His career got a major reboot in 1994 when Quentin Tarantino incorporated “Misirlou” in the soundtrack for Pulp Fiction, and Dale was once again in demand. Dale hasn’t been touring as much of late; his cancer returned a few years ago and it took chemo and an operation to beat it back into remission. How did he end up booked at Scotia’s Winema Theater this Sunday? Paul Beatie, owner of the recently opened Ferndale Music Company, plays guitar in a Humboldt surf band, The Pyronauts, and Dale is among his heroes. He figured putting on a concert would be good publicity for the store, and, of course, he booked his band as the opening act. Another American music legend of a quite different sort shows up in Humboldt this week. On Tuesday CenterArts presents jazz pianist Ahmad Jamal in concert at HSU’s the Van Duzer Theatre. While Dale’s forte is bold, brash loudness filling up spaces with torrents of notes, Jamal is the opposite. He creates cerebral music with subtle dynamics, full of complex


e’s known as the “King of the Surf Guitar” and he certainly earned the title. Dick Dale is a surfer from Orange County who created a big reverb-drenched guitar sound to recreate the way he felt riding waves. After filling smaller venues, he started renting the Rendezvous Ballroom in Balboa for what he called surfer stomps. His first big hit, “Let’s Go Trippin’,” recorded in 1961, was covered by The Beach Boys on their second album, Surfin’ U.S.A. From the start he was known for his big sound, playing a Fender Stratocaster strung with heavy gage strings as loudly as possible. He tears through so many picks in concert that he has a dispenser attached to his guitar — his discards are thrown into the crowd for souvenirs. It was 50 years ago when Dale first released his classic song “Misirlou,” a Greek rembetika song with Middle Eastern roots, same as Dale. His grandfather was born in Beirut, Lebanon; the family immigrated

harmonies and rhythms — the essence of cool. Born in 1930, Jamal was a child prodigy who started touring professionally when he finished high school. By 1950 he was playing with a trio in New York clubs. Jazz critic Stanley Crouch puts Jamal‘s influence on jazz on a par with the likes of Jelly Roll Morton, Duke Ellington, Art Tatum, Thelonious Monk and Horace Silver, “thinkers whose wrestling with form and content influenced the shape and texture of the music, and whose ensembles were models of their music visions.” You could probably throw Miles Davis on the list too. In 1955, on his first album for Argo, Jamal recorded “New Rhumba,” “Excerpts From The Blues” and “It Ain’t Necessarily So,” all tunes that showed up later on Davis’ seminal records Miles Ahead and Porgy and Bess. Davis described Jamal’s work in his autobiography saying, “He knocked me out with his concept of space, his lightness of touch, his understatement.” Jamal’s career spans the history of modern jazz. In 1994, after being named a Duke Ellington Fellow at Yale University, he received the American Jazz Masters award from the National Endowment for the Arts. Now 82, he hasn’t stopped recording: his latest, Blue Moon, came out this year with a mix of originals and improvisations on classic tunes. As you may have noticed, it’s a holiday weekend, what with Thanksgiving when we all get stuffed with turkey and/or tofurkey to prepare for a weekend of shopping. The Pressure Anya DJs skip the usual Dirty Thursday for family time, but the duo makes up for it with back-to-back gigs Friday and Saturday. Friday P/A provides the soundtrack for a World Fusion Dinner and Dance at the Jambalaya. It starts at 7 p.m. with some sort of international dinner, then moves on to belly dancing by Megz Madrone and Marjhani Bellamorte and a worldly array of beats from Indian bhangra and mutant Balkan to reggae and cumbia. Two-tier pricing gives you the option of skipping dinner and paying less for dancing (at 9).   Then Saturday at Nocturnum Pressure Anya teams with Ba-Dum-Chh Comedy for Post Tryptophan Beats and Laughs “to help you laugh those turkey day pounds away with a night of haw haw’s and fancy feet.” San Francisco comedians Josh Marcus and Eric Barry are up for the occasion. And, according to the Facebook invite from award-winning comic Sherae O’Shaughnessy, “Ba-Dum-Chh Comedy troupe will be backed by the awardwinning DJs Pressure Anya,” presumably for some weird mix of beats and jokes

(or maybe one will follow the other since she goes on to suggest, “Come for the funny; stay for the dancey”). All of this is a benefit for Toys for Tots, or as Sherae puts it, to “help us raise dollars for needy brats this holiday season.” Meanwhile, same Saturday at the Red Fox there’s another benefit, this one for the arty Empire Squared crew. Humboldt expat Berel Alexander (now residing in Oakland) is back home for the weekend. He promises a night full of “music geared toward soul and hip hop lovers with covers and originals,” featuring “a bunch of old friends and great musicians” flying the Hip Hop Lounge flag. It goes without saying that includes HHL founder B. Swizlo on keys. Piet Dalmolen and Derek Armstrong are on guitars, Lee Philips on bass, Pete Ciotti on drums, Mike Lee (from B. Alexander Ensemble) on cello, G Bob on percussion, DJ Just One and Second Nature Sound on turntables and the lovely ladies of Vidagua join Berel on vocals. Added bonus: live art by Julia Finkelstein and a silent auction, presumably including art from E2. DJ Red presents a post-T-day Garage Au-Go-Go Saturday at the Alibi with help from Zephyr and Missing Men, Matt n’ Adam. In what’s become a Black Friday weekend tradition, Blue Ox presents its 17th Annual Craftsman’s Days Festival Friday and Saturday, a showcase of ancient crafts by local artisans with assorted musicians including Striped Pig Stringband, The Tumbleweeds, The John David Young Trio “and many more.” There will also be handmade things to buy, and I can promise they won’t be the sort of thing you’ll find at the mall. World Famous keeps the EDM coming with a show at Arcata Theatre Lounge next Wednesday, Nov. 28, featuring Oakland’s NastyNasty, Canadian basshead Knight Riderz, Denver remixer/producer Ben Samples and glitch funk audiologist Mr. Bill. Despite the fact that many students have probably flown south for the weekend, Blondie’s has two shows this weekend. Friday it’s a free evening of very experimental Humboldt electonoise with Wrecks, Idtal, Shultz and Dr. Foxmeat. Saturday Wrecks returns for more hard electro, OnHell offers “melodic dance music,” Tabor Mountain provides “darqpop post-karaoke,” Mr. Mycelium gets psychedelic and 2012 plays progressive post-apocalyptic acoustica. The invitation on Facebook describes this as “perhaps the greatest lineup ever,” quoting no less than the Dalai Lama. (Don’t believe everything you read on Facebook.) l

Cole Porter comedy at NCRT, Annie coming to Ferndale By William S. Kowinski


n the Cole Porter musical comedy Anything Goes, now on stage at the North Coast Repertory Theatre in Eureka, Billy Crocker (played by Erik Standifird) is in love with young socialite Hope Harcourt (Keili Simmons Marble). But he’s just the young assistant to a Wall Street patrician (Howard Lang), and she is engaged to a rich Brit, Sir Evelyn Oakleigh (Clayton Cook), because her mother (Toodie SueAnn Boll) craves financial security. They’re all sailing on an ocean liner to Europe except Billy, until he helps escaping gangster Moonface Martin (David Simms), and Moonface slips him the ticket meant for Snake Eyes Johnson, an even more important gangster. So they’re all on the same boat, and it’s 1934 — five years after the Wall Street crash. Maritime mayhem ensues. Also along for the ride is nightclub singer Reno Sweeney (Molly Severdia) and her vamping companions, Virtue (Ashley Adams) and Chastity (Kelly Gordon). From the second Molly Severdia takes the stage, the production comes alive. She has that 1930s sophistication and eagerness for what comes next. She’s confident as the character and as an actor, with a lively interest in every onstage moment. It’s the star part — originally written for then-26-year-old Ethel Merman — so it helps that she also has the voice to make the show’s most famous

songs soar. And when they include “You’re the Top,” “I Get A Kick Out of You” and the title tune, you’ve got your money’s worth right there. But there’s more. Keili Simmons Marble is incandescent as Hope Hartwell and shares that quality of being visibly alive to each stage moment. She also triumphs as the show’s choreographer. There are a few well-executed large ensemble dances — the tap-dancing “Anything Goes” would stop the show except it’s at the end of the first act, when the show stops anyway. But her attention to smaller movements in smaller groups (including some Busby Berkeley reminders) also helps advance the show in the best way — with pleasant surprises. She is an excellent dancer herself, and the few opportunities she has to move suggest what more might have been. Anything Goes has been revised and revived several times in its 78 years, with Cole Porter songs cannibalized from other shows. The NCRT show seems based on the 1987 and 2011 versions. The music, the wit of the lyrics and the script are obvious reasons it’s lasted, but there’s also the script’s structure and the opportunities it provides the cast. Often in such comedies, the mirth is in elaborating the stereotypical characters established at the beginning. But this show’s silly, mildly satirical and mostly logical plot is also fed by

a succession of small character surprises and reversals. So Brandy Rose as the sweetly loose gang moll Erma takes it up a notch in her big song in the second act, giving ultimate expression to her character. Clayton Cook’s big song (also a high point) reveals a surprising side to the established Sir Evelyn that changes the story’s direction. (Brandy Rose also reveals comedic power. Anders Carlson nails his comic moments in the relatively small part of the ship’s captain. Those two paired in a screwball comedy might be something to see.) Erik Standifird has the enthusiasm and strong tenor voice of the 1930s romantic lead. Veterans David Simms, Howard Lang and Toodie SueAnn Boll anchor the comedy, and Ashley Adams and Kelly Gordon dance at least as well as they vamp. Others in this strong cast are Gino Bloomberg, Tyler Elwell, Evan Needham, Jessi Shieman, Luke Sikora, Rigel Schmitt, Eric Stiles, Candace Wase and Katie Wolter.    Lauren Wieland directed with wit and efficiency, and probably more. Calder Johnson designed the engagingly bright and useful set and lighting. Jenneveve Hood’s costume designs are great to look at and they express the times, but most impressively, she designed to flatter each individual.  Music director Molly Severdia and her assistant Tina Toomata met the challenge of the sometimes technically difficult songs. The backstage band members are Laura Welch, Molly Harvis, Jeremy Cotton, Dianne Zuleger, Gina Piazza, Val Leone and Tamaras Abrams.  Within the limitations of community theatre and the NCRT facilities, this is a fine production of one of the best musical comedies ever. More than that, it is alive and joyous. There are many memorable moments in this show — both from Cole Porter and from this cast.

If the thought of a day indoors filled with inflatable parades and awkward exchanges with once-a-year relatives has you dreading November’s fourth Thursday, we have some good news. Humboldt offers a few Thanksgiving Day distractions for you turkeys who refuse to be cooped. Get a head start burning inevitable calories by venturing out, bright and early, in the crisp fall morning to get your trot on. The Jogg N’ Shoppe again sponsors the annual Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot, a three mile race/walk/run through Old Town Eureka as grueling as you decide to make it. Should you wake up feeling sporty on Thursday, registration takes place at Old Town Coffee and Chocolates at 7:30 a.m. Race time is 9 a.m. Need to keep your post-Trot heart rate up? Head around the bay to the Arcata Marsh where Friends of the Marsh’s Art Barab will lead an annual walk through our local, natural gem. In?

The City of Trinidad continues a tradition with the annual Blessing of the Fleet. The Chamber of Commerce boasts that in the years since Trinidad has been

Keep the streak alive at the Trinidad Pier at 10 a.m. Significantly more adorable than grandpa stuffing stuffing into his face, the residents of the Sequoia Park Zoo will receive special holiday meals again this Turkey Day.

Special holiday hours are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. And while we’re on the Thanksgiving subject, it’s always nice to remember that the holidays, for many, are not necessarily enjoyable.

book Where the Heart Beats: John Cage, Zen Buddhism and the Inner Life of Artists By Kay Larson - Penguin Press

Kay Larson makes a convincing case that, after  gathering particular artistic and philosophical strands  together from others, John Cage added his own insights  and innovations to become a dominant influence in  20th century arts. Those insights were primarily from  his understanding of Zen Buddhism, and it is Larson’s  singular contribution that as a Zen practitioner, she can  elucidate them. Larson was a distinguished New York art critic before  she began Zen studies with John Daido Loori (whose  book Cave of Tigers I particularly admire). This unique  view of John Cage is organized by portraits of other  artists — those who influenced Cage and those he influenced — as well as Cage’s own biography. As the subtitle  suggests, the emphasis is on their inner lives. Among Cage’s early influences was our own Morris  Graves. They met in 1938 after a Cage percussion concert in Seattle that Graves disrupted, to Cage’s delight.  Eventually they shared a house. Graves, who had traveled in Asia, introduced him to Zen, though flavored  with his wild Dadaist demeanor. Then again, as Larson  points out, “Zen wit” has always been a draw. Cage’s convictions were eventually consolidated by  attending classes at Columbia University in the 1950s  with D.T. Suzuki, the first Japanese expert to bring Zen  to America. Cage refined his artistic credo: “To use art  not as self-expression but as self-alteration. To become  more open.” This was the basis for his techniques of  chance operations. According to Cage, indeterminacy short-circuits  pre-judgment, so it pushes open the doors of the mind  to the discrete reality of what’s present. It can also  suggest new ways in which sounds or the 90 stories  Cage assembled by chance are related — complex  relationships emerge. Larson makes good use of Cage’s writings, which  were themselves (I think) even more widely influential  than his music, and in some ways are an essential part  of the music. Meanwhile her book is full of the creative  figures of 20th century art and music, from the fascinating but relatively obscure to the well-known, including Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, dancer Merce  Cunningham, poet John Ashbery and Yoko Ono. Larson  also writes about the impact of Zen on American arts  in general, with Gary Snyder and the Beats. Together  they explore an important substratum of particularly  American culture. John Cage (who died in 1992) was a presence. As a  student I met him several times, heard him lecture and  saw the Merce Cunningham dancers perform some of  their collaborations. Several times Larson emphasizes  the integrity of his presence, and his persistent open  smile. That’s how I remember him. He embodied his  world view more completely and serenely than anyone  else I’ve encountered — apart from Buddhist monks. — Bob Doran

Posing for the penny? Daniel Day-Lewis as Honest Abe.

An Abe for the Ages

Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis bring Lincoln to vivid, exhilarating life By Dev Richards


LINCOLN. For Steven Spielberg, history is all about the details. Everyone knows the general textbook versions of the Holocaust, World War II and the American slave trade, but with films such as Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan and Amistad, Spielberg conjures the humanity and emotion behind history through details. Here he’s done it again. From the exact replica of Abraham Lincoln’s office to Daniel Day-Lewis’ perfect intonation of his wit, every aspect of this historical drama is continued on next page

continued from previous page carefully honed to please the most fastidious of history buffs (myself included). Lincoln takes the idea of exacting detail to heart, focusing on one period of our 16th president’s life. This is not a film about his log cabin years, his debates with Stephen A. Douglas or his assassination. It’s about Lincoln’s Herculean struggle to pass the 13th amendment and bring an end to the Civil War, in that precise order. With painstaking attention paid to the detailed sequence of Lincoln’s signature political achievement, this struggle makes up the entire plot of the 2½ hour movie. And every second is tear-swellingly riveting. Day-Lewis (There Will Be Blood) simply is Abraham Lincoln. Ample makeup and CGI (I’m assuming) transform his visage, but he would have been convincing in a Nixon mask. With his hunched posture, stiffly awkward gait and contemplative cadence, he embodies Lincoln perfectly. No doubt Day-Lewis drew inspiration from Doris Kearns Goodwin’s Team of Rivals. The historical tome, which provided the basis for the screenplay by Tony Kushner (Munich), is loaded with nerdy trivia and profound insight into previously unknown details of Lincoln’s life during the beginning of his second term. But the book’s precision and minutiae cannot get all of the credit for Day-Lewis’ performance; simply put, the man is a chameleon with another Oscar nod on the way. His isn’t the only spark of brilliance. The huge cast is spotted with familiar faces, but some stand above the others. Sally Field, who I insisted was too old for the part of Mary Todd Lincoln, made me eat my words. With every bipolar, castigating utterance perfectly hewn, Field dominates her scenes with Day-Lewis — not an easy task. Tommy Lee Jones delivers another notable performance as Thaddeus Stevens. A key player in the political tiptoeing required to pass the 13th, Stevens had a tongue that could rip foes into tiny, reconstruction-era pieces, and Jones executes these polysyllabic, embittered rants with a gusto generally reserved for a “pistols at dawn” situation. There’s not enough space here to give all the credit due to each actor, but special mention of James Spader is required: Why has this guy been missing from the big screen for so long? He’s brilliant. You don’t need to be an avid history nerd to enjoy Lincoln; no matter what, you will walk away amazed at the things you didn’t know, and with an undying love for Daniel Day-Lewis. PG13. 149m. THE SESSIONS. Don’t stare, it’s rude. Mine was not the only childhood tainted with this societal view of the disabled, of the different. For a child it means, “Don’t

Journal • Thursday, Nov.Coast 22, 2012JourNal • • North • thursday, JaN. 12, 2012 31 40 North Coast

be curious.” For an adult it means, “Try not to think about it.” Under the guise of decorum, we are taught to look away from things we don’t understand. The Sessions tears these ideas of acceptable behavior apart, leaving them naked and quivering on the ground. The Sessions, the first directorial work of Ben Lewin (Paperback Romance) in over a decade, is the true account of poet and journalist Mark O’Brien (John Hawkes) and his experience with a sex therapist in the late 1980s. Confined to a gurney and iron lung after a childhood battle with polio, O’Brien deals with more difficulty in a single minute than I do in weeks, months, years — ever. He’s not paralyzed; he feels everything but does not have the ability to move anything below his neck. Despite the enormous potential for absolute depression, O’Brien refuses to let his situation take away what makes him human: his capacity to love and to be loved. As the film’s narrator and lead, John Hawkes (Winter’s Bone, Lincoln) floored me, moving his name further up the list of people bound for greatness. The role demands that he convey every emotion with only his face and his voice; he commands your attention while also making it difficult to look at him. It’s masterfully awkward, putting the audience directly in tune with the theme: The only person you are helping by looking away is yourself; keep looking until you see past the disability. The sexuality of The Sessions is nakedly blunt and direct, literally. Any discomfort this causes the audience is trumped by O’Brien’s distress. He is balancing his Catholicism with his human need for love and leaning on his dry wit for reassurance. His therapist, Cheryl (Helen Hunt), and his priest, Father Brendan (William H. Macy), guide him through his venture into sexuality in equally unorthodox ways. Hunt and Macy are refreshing but in no way astounding. Hawkes steals every scene, and elicits every teardrop. But, more importantly, he’s also the source of most of the laughter. It’s a welcome laughter, breaking up the necessary tension. The Sessions is difficult to watch but something you need to see. R. 95m. —Dev Richards


LIFE OF PI.

Gulp. PG. 127m. RISE OF THE GUARDIANS. Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy walk into a bar. No, wait. I mean they team up with Jack Frost to defend the innocence (and gullibility?) of children from an evil spirit named Pitch in this computer-ani-

With Chris Hemsworth? Against the North Koreans? Hmm. Maybe there’s a big shootout with Obamacare. PG13. 114m. Shopping on Black Friday can be like dodging velociraptors, so props to the Arcata Theatre Lounge for scheduling Jurassic Park (1993) for the same day.

The Humboldt County Library closes out its Native American Heritage Month Film Series Tuesday evening with Thunderheart (1992). Val Kilmer plays a mixedblood FBI agent sent to the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota, where members of the American Indian Movement are protesting the federal government’s policies concerning Native Americans.

The Great Flood in History By Barry Evans


ear down thy house, build a ship; abandon wealth, seek after life; scorn possessions, save thy life. Bring up the seed of all kinds of living things into the ship which thou shalt build.

— Command from the gods to [the hero] Utnapishtim, Epic of Gilgamesh Similarities between the flood legend in the Babylonian Gilgamesh saga (parts of which date to 4,000 years ago) and the later story of Noah’s ark (in the Old Testament book of Genesis) are striking. Both Noah and Utnapishtim are divinely commanded to save themselves and their families, together with representatives of all living animals, by building a huge boat in which to survive the coming deluge. Once the boats (or arks) are ready, torrential rains flood the entire Earth, killing all living creatures. When the waters finally recede, Noah’s ark lands on Mount Ararat, while Utnapishtim’s boat comes to rest on nearby Mount Nisir. Truth is, there isn’t nearly enough water on Earth to fulfill the claim, made by both Genesis and Gilgamesh, of a worldwide flood. Even if all the frozen water presently locked up in our planet’s ice sheets and glaciers melted, sea level would rise by only (!) 260 feet. Still, it’s a fair question to ask whether a real-life catastrophic flood could have prompted both these two ancient stories and other similar “deluge” accounts from the Middle East. The most convincing argument for a historical antecedent came in 1997,

when geologist Bill Ryan and geophysicist Walter Pitman, both at Columbia University, proposed that a massive deluge had occurred in the Black Sea region nearly eight millennia ago. At that time, the Black Sea was a freshwater lake, and rivers that previously fed it had changed course. Because of evaporation, its level had fallen until it was — according to Ryan and Pitman — about 300 feet lower than the nearby Mediterranean Sea. In their scenario, the Mediterranean breached a sill of soft rock, opening up the Bosphorus channel between the two seas, flooding an area of land equivalent to that of the State of Georgia (60,000 square miles) in a matter of months. The researchers postulated that about 10 cubic miles of water “poured through each day, 200 times what flows over Niagara Falls,” wiping out any unfortunate farmers and herders then living in the low-lying regions. Since that time geologists from around the world have taken up the gauntlet thrown down by Ryan and Pitman. Roughly speaking, two rival camps have emerged: One agrees with their “catastrophe” version; the other claims that any enlargement of the Black Sea occurred much more sedately, with minimal loss of life. What I find so intriguing is the possibility that the writers of Genesis and Gilgamesh documented an actual event so terrifying that an unbroken line of storytellers kept its memory alive — in exaggerated form — for thousands of years. If the debate turns out favorably for Ryan and Pitman, that should tell us something about the staying power of oral tradition. l Barry Evans (barryevans9@yahoo. com) gives better than 50/50 odds that legends of Troy, King Arthur and the Great Flood are all based on historical events. • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, NOV. 22, 2012

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 will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. 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.
