The resolution will send a message to our legislators in Sacramento that we must end today’s usurious, wasteful, predatory health insurance practices that unilaterally raise premiums, constrain us within narrow networks, deny care and question and control our medical providers’ prescribed procedures and drug treatments. Corporate health insurance agencies (and Big PhaRMA) waste 30 cents on the dollar on profit, big salaries and bonuses, shareholder payouts, advertising (guess who pays for all those TV ads), lobbying and bureaucratic overhead. A single-payer healthcare system would give every resident a lifetime card guaranteeing access to doctors and hospitals of choice, for any medical treatment, including vision, dental and hearing, long-term care and more. No more premiums, deductibles, co-pays, doctor or hospital bills. Humboldt County governmental agencies and service districts now spend more than $20.6 million buying health plans for their employees. A single-payer system would lift that entire financial burden by supplying care that is not attached to employment. How much better that money could be spent for real social services that benefit us all. We now ask the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors to sign this resolution. Please contact our supervisors and advise them to do the right thing to help make our county fiscally and physically healthy! More info at www.healthcareforall.org and www.pnhp.org.

A Moral Defense of Gardening Editor: “Gardening as a Moral Conundrum” by Lauri Rose is a highly amusing and entertaining way to regard gardening, enjoyed by so many of us, as many acts of murder (Nov. 11). But the article may be troubling to some people who may take it seriously because

they have neither the time nor inclination to fully contemplate what gardening involves. I submit the following as an antidote. We humans must obtain food, but we are not obligated to do so by acts of violence, as are other animals who are not endowed with higher intelligence. If we are to abide within our higher consciousness, we need not, and must not, allow ourselves to harbor murderous feelings toward other creatures. We can choose to eat plants instead of other animals. We may also choose to use Hav-a-Hart traps so as to peacefully relocate furry creatures that would interfere with our gardening plans. We may also create raised beds to avoid that problem entirely. As for the other creatures — the weeds, birds, insects, worms, bacteria, etc. — they will naturally adjust to disruptions we must cause in their lives, provided we avoid using murderous chemicals. Both the animal and plant kingdoms naturally reproduce in wasteful abundance, creating overgrowth unless constrained by other natural forces. Our need for food and to create beauty may be part of that constraint if we control our own numbers. The idea of gardening as a kind of idyllic activity springs from and reflects our higher selves, but only when approached with the conscious intent to create while avoiding violence and harm. When approached this way, gardening does indeed let us fulfill our needs while feeling in harmony with nature. I submit that gardening may be an act of sublime creation rather than a moral conundrum. It’s just a matter of attitude and intent. Irene Van Natter, Kneeland

Legislation introduced to return sacred lands to the Karuk Tribe

dEc 19, 10-4 520 South G Street, ArcAtA

AcroSS from the mArSh interpretive center

(707)826-1445 fiREARTSARcATA . cOm

By Kimberly Wear kim@northcoastjournal.com

A

t the confluence of the Klamath and Salmon rivers stands a small mountain known as á›uuyich to the Karuk people, for whom it is the center of the

world. Close by is the historic village of Katimiîn, where the Karuk Tribe’s annual world renewal ceremony to restore balance to the universe takes place, and down river is Ameekyáaraam, site of the Jump Dance and First Salmon Ceremony. Sacred to the Karuk people since time immemorial, these lands will be among some 1,200 acres returned to the tribe from U.S. Forest Service control under legislation introduced this month by North Coast Congressmember Jared Huffman. These majestic places, nestled in parts of Humboldt and Siskiyou counties, are integral to the history, religion, culture and identity of the Karuk Tribe, says Karuk Tribal Chair Buster Attebery. Returning them, he says, “will ensure the Karuk culture and way of life can endure for future generations.” “Natural resource stewardship of land, wildlife, plants and water is the core of the Karuk people’s culture and identity,” Attebery says. “So, this bill will give us ceremonial areas that will come under our management and will fit into our core values of restoring these lands that we use for ceremonies and dances, in particular places where we do our Pik-ya-vish, our fix-the-world ceremony. So, it’s vital that the Karuk Tribe has these placed under our jurisdiction, so we can restore them back into their natural state and continue to perform our ceremonies and, again, restore our culture.” The legislation represents the culmination of around seven years of efforts by the Karuk Tribe, which has worked in collaboration with Huffman to reclaim at least a portion of their ancestral lands, of which about 95 percent is under federal management. “This bill seeks to return sacred ground

to the Karuk Tribe, correcting an historic injustice,” Huffman states in a release, which notes that only U.S. Forest Service lands will be returned to the tribe under the bill, with all private lands, allotments and existing rights associated with those are excluded. “I’ve had the immense privilege and honor of visiting Katimiîn and its surrounding acres.” Karuk Tribe Executive Director Joshua Saxon says efforts leading up the legislation’s introduction included inviting Huffman on a visit as well as outreach to area tribes, the counties involved and local agencies, describing the process to date as “a long journey.” In return, he says, the tribe has received a lot of support from its partners and organizations that view the return of the land as a necessary step for the federal government to take, noting these places are the center of the Karuk people’s world. “Our philosophy is not necessarily that we own the land,” Saxon says. “We owe a responsibility to this land and a responsibility to restore this place. So, that’s really our mission.” Darrel Aubrey, the Karuk Tribe’s self-governance director, says the return of the lands is a “huge deal,” one that will allow the tribe to manage the land and continue to practice its culture without interference in the future. “So, we are very excited to get this out there and hopefully get it back into our management,” he says. While the tribe has a special permit to access the land included in Huffman’s bill for ceremonial purposes, that is not always guaranteed. And the ceremonies are sometimes interrupted, although usually not intentionally, most often by

river rafters. Attebery says the return of the lands will allow the Karuk Tribe to better inform the public and provide notice of ceremonies being held. But there’s also the dark legacy in California of the systematic and government-sanctioned attempted genocide and destruction of Indigenous communities across the state that occurred after contact, with Native people subjected to institutionalized violence and driven from their ancestral lands, their families ripped apart as children were forcibly sent to boarding schools in an attempt to strip them of their culture. This legislation will allow the Karuk Tribe to restore these lands for generations to come. “We are very proud of our elders and their resilience … . The genocides and the boarding schools, that took away a lot of our language and our way of life, and their resilience, we want to honor that by bringing back this part of our culture, so our children and their children can enjoy that way of life,” Attebery says. Saxon says the tribe does not see the return of the lands as controversial. “It’s not complex,” he says. “It is very simple. It is very straightforward. It’s only about 1,000 acres. We see this as non-controversial and necessary to right a historical wrong.” l Kimberly Wear (she/her) is the digital editor at the Journal.

W

e have all heard of Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Small Business Saturday. A few years ago, a new event was added to our list: Giving Tuesday, which is reserved for the Tuesday after Thanksgiving as a day to encourage people to do good and give back to charities. Humboldt County has a strong sense of community and a long tradition of supporting local businesses, artists and nonprofits. Historically, our unique location behind the Redwood Curtain has required that we become creative and self-reliant, and our region’s farmers, local artists, small business owners and nonprofit organizations are the fruit of this Humboldt spirit. However, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen unprecedented social and economic impacts in our community. Many people are now working from home semi-permanently, community events have been canceled, people are shopping online instead of downtown and local businesses are closing their doors. As a community, we need to make a conscious effort to support what we value. If we value our local farmers, artists and small businesses, we need to invest in them by supporting them financially. Equally important is supporting our nonprofit sector — the organizations that provide an opportunity for people to work together for the common good to strengthen the fabric of our communities. Nonprofits foster civic engagement, provide goods and services to the needy, protect the environment, support traditional cultures, drive economic growth and provide an avenue to transform our highest ideals and noblest causes into reality. But the pandemic has had a major effect on this segment of our economy. During times of crisis, many nonprofits have become even more critical in providing these types of services while, at the same time, funding streams to support activities have become even more stressed, now facing increasing competition for a shrinking pool of funds from an even smaller pool of willing donors.

There are hundreds of local nonprofits on the North Coast that fulfill their mission to provide key services benefitting our communities, but we often do not realize they are there until we need their help. A few of the services our local nonprofits offer to our community include feeding the homeless, connecting advocates with foster children, delivering free spay and neutering services, educating people about traditional foodways, protecting wild places from industrial logging and herbicide spraying, providing grief counseling, hospice care, subsidized childcare and so much more. Many assume that large grants cover most of these activities but the truth is that a significant portion of their income comes from individual donations from people like you. Most nonprofits are a labor of love; they operate on shoestring budgets and their staffs must multitask, sometimes carrying out essential program tasks while simultaneously fundraising, accounting and doing their own outreach. Our unique location on the Lost Coast means we have fewer connections with the outside world and larger organizations do not provide services to our area. Over the past couple of years, the pandemic has been incredibly difficult for individuals, leaving people feeling more isolated and alone, and now more than ever, we value the benefits of being involved with our community and the importance of working together to create a groundswell of support for the nonprofits providing essential services to our area. This Giving Tuesday, give back to those organizations that make the North Coast special. As we enter the holiday giving season, I am asking you to think of the local organizations that provide benefits that serve you or your interests and make charitable donations to support their work on this upcoming Tuesday, Nov. 30. ● Amber Jamieson (she/her) is the Communications and Development director at the Environmental Protection Information Center.

Another COVID Holiday: Is California in a Better Place this Year? Not in Humboldt.

T

he holidays are here and people are ready to gather, hug and feast. But is California in a better place this year when it comes to COVID-19? Last year, as Thanksgiving approached, infections were creeping up, culminating in a brutal winter surge, and the governor implemented an emergency curfew to slow the spread of the virus. Overall the state as a whole is now doing better than a year ago, before vaccines were available. But a closer look at each county shows that “better” isn’t the case for all: At least 18 counties have more hospitalized COVID-19 patients today than they did this time last year. Another five have just as many. The vast majority of the ones faring worse are in the Central Valley and rural Northern California, which are still recovering from bad summer surges. Humboldt, Madera and Lassen counties have the biggest year-over-year increases. In Madera, the seven-day average stood at 32 hospitalized patients on Nov. 21, compared to 13 a year ago. Humboldt had 11 hospitalizations on Nov. 21 compared to three on the same date last year. It’s a different — and far better — situation in California’s urban counties. Of

the state’s 10 most populous counties, all except Fresno have fewer COVID patients in the hospital today than a year ago. Los Angeles, Alameda and Contra Costa counties are reporting less than half of the COVID-19 hospitalizations of last year. San Diego, Orange, Riverside, Santa Clara, San Bernardino and Sacramento counties have about 30 percent less. Last year’s winter surge was harsh for most of the state. But for some counties — including Butte, Humboldt, Mendocino, Shasta and Placer — this summer and fall were even worse. Some saw more patients hospitalized in summer and fall than they did last winter. In the Central Valley some local hospitals are still strained. And experts say that’s a dangerous situation going into the holidays when another wave of cases is expected. “We hope this surge, which we’re just trending down from now, is an indication that hopefully we won’t have another surge. But an increase in cases wouldn’t be terribly unlikely,” said Lisa Almaguer, communications director at Butte County Public Health. “In June or July, we literally only had four COVID positive patients in the hospital and were in a bit of a celebratory

ON THE TABLE

Magnificent Matsutake Mushrooms

Adding autumn flavor to chicken soup By Wendy Chan

onthetable@northcoastjournal.com

A

s soon as the wet late autumn steps in, my excitement for wild mushrooms grows. When I receive texts or calls from my mushroom foraging friends, I feel like a child on Christmas morning. I’m so grateful to live on the North Coast with its beautiful surroundings, great weather and so much food you can hunt or gather as an adventurous foodie. Matsutake, aka pine mushrooms, are among my favorites. I remember a couple of years back, when my friend and I drove an hour to pick up an order of wild mushrooms from someone we met on Facebook. Due to miscommunication and lack of cellular service on the road, we had to wait anxiously on a corner of a shady parking lot for almost an hour. My friend and I laughed about it after a lady stopped and asked if we were lost. We felt like a couple of shady drug dealers once when we finally got our mushrooms from the trunk of a stranger’s car. I must thank my Japanese friend Kay, who introduced matsutake to me more than 10 years ago. The way she carefully washed and sliced them, the fragrant matsutake rice and the delicious tempura she made in our kitchen — such amazing memories these mushrooms bring up. Every year, l mail a small box to her in Florida for Thanksgiving. She always calls me immediately and tells me how she is dancing with excitement in her kitchen. Japanese matsutake are expensive in Japan (where they sometimes cost as much as $1,000 per pound), China and Korea, where as American matsutake are priced similarly to other wild mushrooms on the North Coast. Since l introduced to some of my Asian friends to them, buying matsutake is an event for us every year. It’s plentiful from November to early January. I usually stir-fry or braise them with meat, put them in soup, use them in dumpling filling and even shave them raw on salad. I also dry and freeze the extras. Touted for their health

benefits, matsutake are considered one of the top mushrooms in the fungus world. Chicken with matsutake soup is our goto for cold days. It’s simple to make with only a few ingredients. The aroma of the soup is earthy and comforting. I hope you have access to these local beauties while they are in season.

Chicken with Matsutake Soup Ingredients: 1 whole chicken (about 3 pounds) 15 cups water 5 slices of fresh ginger 2/3 pound fresh matsutake mushrooms, cleaned and sliced 8 Chinese red dates, or jujubes, soaked for 15 minutes and rinsed 1/3 cup dried goji berries, rinsed well Salt Break the chicken down to 8 pieces (breasts, thighs, leg and wings), keeping the skin on and bones in. Soak them in warm water for 20 minutes to get rid of any blood, rinse well. Put in a large pot, add the 15 cups of cold water (well cover the chicken), add the ginger and bring it to a boil. Continue boiling for 15 minutes, then turn the heat down to medium-low and simmer for 40 minutes. Skim off any fat and bits floating on top, then add the sliced matsutake mushrooms and jujubes. Return the pot to a boil and let it simmer for another 30 minutes. Skim the top of the broth again, add the goji berries and simmer for 15 minutes longer. Salt to taste. Serve alone or with steamed rice. l You can find Home Cooking with Wendy Chan (she/her) classes benefitting local charities on Facebook.

NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, Nov. 25, 2021 • northcoastjournal.com

hen I started writing this piece, I had grand ambitions of opening a conversation for cisgender readers. After several drafts, I decided the internet was offering plenty of organizations, memes, infographics and listicles for cisgender people to use as a resource (see below). And though there were many adorable watercolor comics online giving advice for trans folk, I found the resources to be lacking certain specific direction. So, this piece is directed toward all the trans folks that are about to experience a family-centered national holiday after nearly two years of not having to interact without a mask over their faces. Navigating the world day to day is tiring, irritating and frankly concerning for anyone. Enduring the requirements of a mid-pandemic Thanksgiving sounds like an agonizing anxiety flow, traveling freely

through a soup of obligation and conversation. Gross. I don’t want to do any of that but, at this vaccinated point, I have no reasonable excuse to skip out of family functions. So, as a recently out trans man, I want to share three magic words with all of my trans readers, “No, thank you.” The “no, thank you” retort has helped me through so many awkward situations. When that day-drunk white woman cornered me a local bar and asked, “What were you born as?” the NTY response was clutch. When that 50-something woman at Target asked me if I was going to have “all those surgeries,” NYT was like Captain America’s shield. With a smile on your face you can make the most eye contact possible with the inappropriate stranger and deflect the entire conversation. It goes without saying that you don’t owe any person any response, but there is something so gratifying about getting the


last word. With a NTY, you’re starting the reply with a solid “no,” which is hard to respond to with further questions. Most people, being lazy and easily distracted, will take the “no” as an out. But, then, you’re adding the “thank you” onto the end. And that is pure gold. It’s polite, admirable and requires little effort. This can be a miraculously defusing defense, usually allowing you to go on your way. Their offense had no realistic follow through and further thought will likely derail them from their intrusive mission. With that weapon in your pocket, I want to present my strategy for a stressless family dinner. Almost stressless. Don’t arrive early, even if it would score you so many adult points from your parent(s). You need to arrive at just the right moment, at the perfect intersection of three line graphs: most people present, fewest people drunk, majority of time at table while eating/not talking. Ideally, arrive right as it’s time to set the table. Everyone is shuffling around, offering help to the hosts and commenting about their expectations of the main course and sides. Offer to help set that table, thus allowing yourself to not have to stay in one place for more than a few seconds. Bonus: Grandparents love it when you offer to help with things. It’s basically their favorite. I’m terms of seating, if you don’t have an LGBTQIA-friendly tablemate, you have two viable, tactical options at this point: Find a seat where you’re surrounded by the quietest/most boring people of the party (a non-engaging grandfather or uncle, a shy new in-law, etc.), or opt for the kids’ table. Each choice comes with its own set of risks. If you’re lucky, you’ll have an ally or two somewhere at the table. Someone who will dutifully require your attention and deflect any unwanted discomfort. I truly hope you have this resource because even the most taciturn cousin or uncle at the adult table may still find a way to ask a question. “Are you still dating so-and-so, or do you date … differently … now?” Or, at worst, another relative further down the table will ask them to convey a question, which means you’ll hear it twice and have to look at at least two people when you answer. Blech. The kids’ table runs the risk of far more questions but it offers the advantage of having a way more innocently curious person asking — someone who

can’t just Google it during their allotted screen time. Not to mention, there’s the added bonus of being able to progressively corrupt whatever narrative the kid has already been fed. Plus, in general, the conversations are more interesting and there’s zero chance of politics entering the discussion. Post-dinner, you will need to find an exit opportunity wherever it may come up. If you happen to have to drive more than 30-minutes to get home, this is a great excuse. Every older generation sees that as a great risk against safety and sleep. Use it, if you can. The other option is to recruit a cousin or LGBTQIA-friendly aunt/uncle to help you do the dishes. This is a dual-edged opportunity. It scores you adult-points and sequesters you in a room with few occupants. Depending on the layout, you may even be able to maneuver from the kitchen directly through the back door. If, at anytime during any step of this process, you encounter an awful question, remember that all you have to say is, “No thank you.” At no moment are you required to give your response more consideration than the other person gave their question. You have the absolute right to smile broadly and NTY your way out of any conversation. The beauty of NTY is its versatility. For example, you can NTY your way out of the original invite, if you want. You have every right not to attend any situation that causes you anxiety, fear or a lack of safety; you don’t even have to give a real reason. Tell them you have to wash your hair, or whatever. Let’s say, for the sake of argument, that you have more patience, tolerance and trust at a family gathering than I do. Excellent; you probably go to therapy. Here is a list of very informative resources that you can pass along to Uncle Mike and Aunt Lisa: GLAAD, www.glaad.org Trans Lifeline, www.translifeline.org www.LGBTmap.org The Human Rights Campaign page on trans children and youth, www. hrc.org/resources/transgender-children-and-youth-understanding-the-basics PFLAG, www.pflag.org l Henry Ellis (he/him) is still afraid of Earnest Scared Stupid and thankful for the privilege and comfort he has.

A Bevy of Blueberries By Julia Graham-Whitt

downanddirty@northcoastjournal.com

N

ow that we’re finally receiving some beneficial rain, it’s a good time of year to think about some new plants for your garden. Fall is an excellent time to plant shrubs, trees and other plants because the rain will usually provide enough moisture and the temperatures are cooler, both of which allow for strong root growth. One of my favorite things to plant in the fall are blueberries. Who doesn’t love some blueberries fresh from your own yard or balcony on their pancakes, in muffins or over your granola? I scoped out three of our local nurseries for this article and the selection definitely varies by shop. There are five types of blueberries available but the ones you’ll typically see at local nurseries are: Northern highbush, which can grow to 5 to 9 feet; lowbush, which are usually 1.5 feet or shorter; and half-high, which grow 3 to 4 feet tall. Halfhigh are frost sensitive but you can find some of the cultivars in our local nurseries. (Patriot is one that I’ve planted for clients.) The other two types are Southern highbush, and Rabbit-eye, which also tend to be very frost sensitive, so you won’t usually find them here on the North Coast, but you can probably request the nursery order some if that’s the kind you’re interested in. Highbush are the type most commonly planted in the U.S. But within the three locally available types of blueberries, there are more than 150 varieties/cultivars from which to choose. Which kind to plant should you buy and how far apart should you plant them? Do you love sweet berries? Tart? Good for baking or jams? There’s a wealth of information online about which ones fit the bill but you can also read the info on the tags at the nursery. Some favorite blueberries I’ve grown in my garden and planted for clients include: Patriot, Chandler, Bluecrop, Duke, Spartan and Legacy. But read up on your own, as there are many to choose from. Once you’ve made your selections, it’s time to prepare the planting area. Blueberries do best in full sun and they love our acidic soil. Just the same, I like to toss a little acid fertilizer in the planting

hole before putting the plant in. G&B, Dr. Earth and FoxFarm all make excellent organic fertilizers for acid-loving plants, and they’re available at our local nurseries. You can plant a hedgerow of blueberries, in which case you would plant them about 1 to 2 feet apart. Or you can plant them individually, which is usually better for the Northern highbush, since they can get rather large and wide. While most blueberries you can grow here are self-fruitful, it’s best to plant more than one variety. In addition, it’s helpful to plant varieties that fruit at different times. You’ll see the fruiting time listed on the tag: early season, mid-season and late season. Many gardeners offer anecdotal advice about getting better production if you plant at least one of each ripening time. If you do plant them individually, it’s better to do so in the same area, rather than scattered all over the place. Blueberries have a shallow root system and they don’t like competition from weeds, nor do they like having wet feet, so make sure to plant them in an area that is well drained. You may need to add some humus (organic matter) to the planting hole to provide better drainage. Dig a hole about 18 inches wide and equally deep if you’re planting a one-gallon pot. Important note: If we’ve had a lot of rain recently, wait a few days for the soil to dry out, otherwise you can compact the soil and smother the roots. You can amend the soil with some coconut coir instead of peat. Peat used to be the recommended amendment but harvesting from peat bogs has come under scrutiny in recent years as an unsustainable product because it grows back so slowly.

Peat holds a lot of moisture and is acidic but so does coco coir, which also has a neutral pH. That’s why I like to add some acidic fertilizer. The neutral pH won’t hurt the plants. Remove the plant from the pot and rough up the roots a bit, then plant and backfill with the soil. Mulch them with 2 to 6 inches of an acidic mulch, such as redwood duff or shredded bark, the latter of which is available at local landscape supply companies. Pine needles also work well as an acidic mulch. Just don’t put the mulch right up against the plant itself, as that can lead to rot. Think doughnut, not volcano, when it comes to mulching. This goes for trees as well. Now that you’ve planted your blueberries, here comes the hard part: Don’t let them produce fruit their first year. I know it’s painful. But the plant needs to establish its root system and branch growth, rather than produce a small handful of fruit. Blueberries, especially Northern highbush varieties, need to be pruned every year. Remove any crisscrossing branches to allow light and air circulation into the center of the plant. Also remove any damaged branches or branches that haven’t produced any new growth over the past growing season. If you’re uncertain as to how to properly prune blueberries, there are plenty of tutorials online or you can ask your local nursery staffer. l Julia Graham-Whitt (she/her) is owner and operator of the landscaping business Two Green Thumbs.

FISHING THE NORTH COAST

Stellar Season for Sport Dungeness Crabbers By Kenny Priest

fishing@northcoastjournal.com

N

orth Coast recreational Dungeness crabbers from Shelter Cove to Crescent City are enjoying one of the best seasons in recent memory. Since opening day, the crabs have been abundant and the meat content has been excellent. So good, in fact, that the commercial season has a solid chance of opening on time Dec. 1, barring any last-minute price disputes. Sport boats fishing out of Eureka are dropping pots anywhere between 80 to 130 feet on either side of the entrance, and are pulling easy limits, according to Tim Klassen of Reel Steel Sport Fishing. “Both sides have been fishing well but the north might be slightly better,” he said. “We’ve been averaging about 13 keepers per pot and that’s with a lot of gear nearby. Bait jars stuffed with squid along with rockfish carcasses in the chew bags has been working well.” Not only is the offshore crabbing going strong, plenty of limits are coming out of Humboldt Bay. The best bite has been south near King Salmon away from the heavy currents coming from north bay. If you haven’t gotten your fill of the tasty crustaceans yet, you’ll want to do so before the commercial fleet hits the water next week.

Weekend Weather and Marine Forecast According to Eureka’s National Weather Service office, we are looking dry through the weekend and into early next week. The next chance of rain is Dec. 1 but rainfall amounts are uncertain. The weekend marine forecast is looking good for offshore crabbing and possibly rockfish. As of Wednesday, Saturday’s forecast is calling for north winds up to 5 knots with west waves 7 feet at 13 seconds. Sunday is looking similar, with winds coming out of the north up to 5 knots

with northwest waves 6 feet at 12 seconds. These conditions can and will change by the weekend. For an up-to-date weather forecast, visit www.weather.gov/eureka or www.windy.com.

Hegnes of Crescent City’s Englund Marine. “South Reef produced some really good ling fishing,” he said. “The crabbing is still really good. Boats have been doing well south in 40 feet of water and also above Battery Point Lighthouse in 120 to 140 feet of water.”

Eel River salmon returns

Main stem Eel

As of Nov. 14, a total of 364 Chinook salmon have entered the Van Arsdale fish count station, according to Andrew Anderson, an Aquatic Biologist with PG&E. Making up that total are 132 males, 146 females and 69 jacks. A total of 65 Chinook ascended the fish ladder in 2020. No steelhead yet but this is typical for Van Arsdale, located high in the Eel River Watershed. For more information, visit www.eelriver. org/the-eel-river/fish-count.

The Oceans Shelter Cove

According to Jake Mitchell of Sea Hawk Sport Fishing, rock fishing is still going strong, with limits coming fairly easily. “Ling cod is a little tougher but if you can find them, they’re usually piled up together,” said Mitchell. “We’ve been bouncing around from the Old Man to Rogers; it’s pretty much the same everywhere. The crabbing is still good; we’re getting limits daily of quality crab.” The launch will be closed Tuesday through Thursday this week.

Crescent City

Ocean conditions were good on Monday, and there was quite a bit of effort on the rockfish according to Chris

The Rivers: Flows were down to 1,750 cubic feet per second on Tuesday and it’s getting clear. The king run is pretty much over for the year but there are some coho making their way through the lower river. More salmon should arrive after the next significant rainfall, as well as the first of the steelhead.

Smith

The late-fall run of salmon is just about over on the Smith. Rain is needed to bring in the last of the salmon and to kickstart the steelhead run. Flows were down to 1,700 cfs on Tuesday and the river is low and clear. Roe under a float or back-bouncing the deeper holes are your best bet until we get some significant rainfall. ● Read the complete fishing report at www.northcoastjournal.com Kenny Priest (he/him) operates Fishing the North Coast, a fishing guide service out of Humboldt specializing in salmon and steelhead.

COWBOY BEBOP. Anime has never been cooler in America or more cursed in Hollywood. Japan’s stylized animated export, with its high drama and old-school 2D art is enjoying its widest audience, with a flood of titles available on streaming services and Megan Thee Stallion casually rapping about watching anime. Sadly, as movie studios turn their terrible gaze on them, even the classics aren’t safe. Director Rupert Sanders’ whitewashed adaptation of Ghost in the Shell (2017), starring Scarlett Johansson, was roundly mocked for its casting and the lessons clearly not retained after the Wachowskis’ live-action Speed Racer (2008), starring Emile Hirsch and Christina Ricci. Robert Rodriguez’s disastrously creepy Alita: Battle Angel (2019) falls not only deep into the uncanny valley with its CGI star’s bulging, gelatinous eyes (shudder), but lurches wildly from one embarrassment to the next, capturing, among all of anime’s wonders, only its frequent obsession with breasts. Watching the Shinichiro Watanabe’s 1998 anime series Cowboy Bebop (also streaming on Netflix), about bounty hunters wandering through space in busted up junkers with bad guys in hot pursuit, it’s easy to see its influence on American movies and series. Firefly, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Mandalorian all bear its markings in their anti-hero humor, dreamy shot composition, dusty aesthetics and the scuffs of gold showing through their crusty, mercenary hearts. While unmistakably Japanese in its style and settings, the series is also a translated love letter to three American genres, with its ebullient jazz soundtrack, noir story and Western tropes. Netflix’s newly released live-action series adaptation captures the look and feel of the original — sometimes in straight recreations of iconic shots, as in the opening credits — with winking nostalgia. It also skirts cringy casting and brims with fun and a playful lightness to balance its darker themes. Like the proper anti-hero he is, bounty hunter Spike Spiegel (John Cho) is avoiding his issues, presumed dead by gangsters, including the spooky, platinum-maned Vicious (Alex Hassell) and his wife, Julia (Elena Satine), the dame he supposedly got

himself killed over. Spike’s long-suffering traveling/ hunting companion Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir) is also hiding a past that cost him his original arm. In pursuit of marks, the pair are alternately hindered, helped and outright attacked by the competition in the form of purple-haired Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda). As they chase often diminished if not fruitless cash rewards and shaggy dogs, Spike’s old enemies draw closer. Cue the horn section. The costuming revels in Cowboy Bebop fashion, with faithful adaptations like Spike’s signature suit and pompadour, and updates, like Faye’s utility-core looks, which are far more practical and interesting than the string bikinis and thigh-highs of the original. (Don’t panic, fanboys of Reddit, porn still exists, after all.) Likewise, the sets and spacecraft mimic the anime with added heft and grit. But the fight choreography eschews straight realism for the fantasy of anime, with wild acrobatics, weightless cartwheels and flips, and comic prop work. Listen, it can’t all be John Wick hammering a push knife into somebody’s chest — sometimes we need a little goofy escapism. That everyone on board — of the ship and the project — is clearly having fun is a nice change from the grim method acting I can’t seem to flip away from fast enough this month. Is Cho a little long in the tooth for the role of 27-year-old Spike? Sure. But his age has given the boyish worry of his Harold and Kumar days new dimension and he’s able to shift from weariness and disappointment to a mask of smirking bravado without losing his humanity. And there’s no denying how he slips into Spike’s lanky suit and gait. As his foils, Shakir gives us bickering bromance to play off his partner’s recklessness, and Pineda is a spunky surprise in a role that doesn’t offer as much in animated form. Some excellent character actors show up

NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, Jan. 1, 2021 • northcoastjournal.com

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Aries author Chris Brogan says, “Don’t settle. Don’t finish crappy books. If you don’t like the menu, leave the restaurant. If you’re not on the right path, get off it.” That’s the best possible counsel for you to hear, in my astrological opinion. As an Aries, you’re already inclined to live by that philosophy. But now and then, like now, you need a forceful nudge in that direction. So please, Aries, go in pursuit of what you want, not what you partially want. Associate with the very best, most invigorating influences, not the mediocre kind. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Author Kurt Vonnegut wrote wistfully, “I still catch myself feeling sad about things that don’t matter anymore.” If similar things are running wild in your head, dear Taurus, the coming weeks will be a favorable time to banish them. You will have extra power to purge outdated emotions and reclaim at least some of the wild innocence that is your birthright. PS: There’s nothing wrong with feeling sad. In fact, feeling sad can be healthy. But it’s important to feel sad for the right reasons. Getting clear about that is your second assignment. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “I’ll walk forever with stories inside me that the people I love the most can never hear.” So says the main character in Gemini author Michelle Hodkin’s novel The Evolution of Mara Dyer. If that heart-rending statement has resonance with your own personal experience, I have good news: The coming weeks will be a favorable time to transform the situation. I believe you can figure out how to share key stories and feelings that have been hard to reveal before now. Be alert for unexpected opportunities and not-at-all-obvious breakthroughs. CANCER (June 21-July 22): A study of people in 24 countries concluded that during the pandemic, over 80 percent of the population have taken action to improve their health. Are you in that group? Whether or not you are, the coming weeks will be a favorable time to go further in establishing robust self-care. The astrological omens suggest you’ll find it easier than usual to commit to good new habits. Rather than trying to do too much, I suggest you take no more than three steps. Even starting with just one might be wise. Top three: eating excellent food, having fun while exercising right, and getting all the deep sleep you need. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Leo-born scholar Edith Hamilton loved to study ancient Greek civilization. She wrote, “To rejoice in life, to find the world beautiful and delightful to live in, was a mark of the Greek spirit which distinguished it from all that had gone before.” One sign of Greece’s devotion to joie de vivre was its love of play. “The Greeks were the first people in the world to play,” Hamilton exulted, “and they played on a great scale. All over Greece, there were games”—for athletes, dancers, musicians, and other performers. Spirited competition was an essential element of their celebration of play, as was the pursuit of fun for its own sake. In resonance with your astrological omens, Leo, I propose you regard ancient Greece as your spiritual home for the next five weeks. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo singer-songwriter Florence Welch of the band Florence and the Machine told an interviewer why she wrote “Hunger.” She said, “I looked for love in things that were not love.” What were those things? According to her song, they included taking drugs and performing on stage. Earlier in Florence’s life, as a teenager, “love was a kind of emptiness” she experienced through her eating disorder. What about you, Virgo? Have you looked for love in things that weren’t love? Are you doing that right now? The coming weeks will be a good time to get straight with yourself about this issue. I suggest you ask for help from your higher self. Formulate a strong intention that in the future, you will look

for love in things that can genuinely offer you love. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): There’s a Grateful Dead song, with lyrics written by John Perry Barlow, that says, “You ain’t gonna learn what you don’t want to know.” I propose you make that your featured advice for the next two weeks. I hope you will be inspired by it to figure out what truths you might be trying hard not to know. In so doing, you will make yourself available to learn those truths. As a result, you’ll be led on a healing journey you didn’t know you needed to take. The process might sound uncomfortable, but I suspect it will ultimately be pleasurable. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio author and philosopher Albert Camus was a good thinker. At age 44, he won the Nobel Prize for Literature—the second-youngest recipient ever. And yet he made this curious statement: “Thoughts are never honest. Emotions are.” He regarded thoughts as “refined and muddy”—the result of people continually tinkering with their inner dialog so as to come up with partially true statements designed to serve their self-image rather than reflect authentic ideas. Emotions, on the other hand, emerge spontaneously and are hard to hide, according to Camus. They come straight from the depths. In accordance with astrological potentials, Scorpio, I urge you to keep these meditations at the forefront of your awareness in the coming weeks. See if you can be more skeptical about your thoughts and more trusting in your emotions. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Poet Renée Ashley describes what she’s attracted to: “I’m drawn to what flutters nebulously at the edges, at the corner of my eye—just outside my certain sight. I want to share in what I am routinely denied or only suspect exists. I long for a glimpse of what is beginning to occur.” Although I don’t think that’s a suitable perspective for you to cultivate all the time, Sagittarius, I suspect it might be appealing and useful for you in the coming weeks. Fresh possibilities will be coalescing. New storylines will be incubating. Be alert for the oncoming delights of the unknown. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): What could you do to diminish your suffering? Your next assignment is to take two specific steps to begin that process. You’re in a phase of your astrological cycle when you’re more likely than usual to see what’s necessary to salve your wounds and fix what’s broken. Take maximum advantage of this opportunity! I proclaim this next chapter of your life to be titled “In Quest of the Maximum Cure.” Have fun with this project, dear Capricorn. Treat it as a mandate to be imaginative and explore interesting possibilities. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “It is a fault to wish to be understood before we have made ourselves clear to ourselves,” wrote my favorite Aquarian philosopher, Simone Weil. I agree. It’s advice I regularly use myself. If you want to be seen and appreciated for who you really are, you should make it your priority to see and appreciate yourself for who you really are. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to make progress in this noble project. Start this way: Write a list of the five qualities about yourself that you love best. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Nigerian author Ben Okri, born under the sign of Pisces, praises our heroic instinct to rise above the forces of chaos. He writes, “The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love, and to be greater than our suffering.” You’ve been doing a lot of that excellent work throughout 2021, dear Pisces. And I expect that you’ll be climaxing this chapter of your life story sometime soon. Thanks for being such a resourceful and resilient champion. You have bravely faced but also risen above the sometimes-messy challenges of plain old everyday life. You have inspired many of us to stay devoted to our heart’s desires.

Homework. Gratitude is the featured emotion. See how amazing you can make yourself feel by stretching it to its limits. Newsletter.FreeWillAstrology.com

humgeo@northcoastjournal.com ore than two decades ago, I was a frequent swimmer at this spot. That came to a brief stop after I saw a 5-foot sturgeon come to the surface right before I was going to dive in. At the time, I didn’t know what it was but was amazed that such a large fish would be in the river. I’ve gotten over my fear and when the weather is right, I either swim or am on an SUP with my friends. According to locals, it was a favorite swimming spot before the flood of 1964. One side of the large rocky island has the remnants of a diving board and its glory days as a premium swimming hole on the Eel River. l Rowdy Kelley (he/him) is a TV and film location scout/manager, producer and director with family roots in Humboldt going back to 1900.

OBITUARIES Samuel P. Oliner passed away on November 17th, 2021. He was born in Zyndranowa, Poland, in 1930. Zyndranowa was a farming village in southern Poland near the Czech border in the Carpathian Mountains. He lived on the small farm Samuel P. Oliner belonging to his grandparents Isak 1930 – 2021 and Reisel Polster, together with his parents and siblings. Sam was left orphaned by the barbarity of Nazi-occupation during World War II, aided in his survival by a Polish family who risked their lives to rescue him. After the war, Sam immigrated to England where he began his formal education at Bunce Court School in Kent in 1946. In 1950, he made his way to New York City with the help of relatives. Shortly after his arrival in America, Sam was drafted into the U.S. Army and served in the Korean War (Bronze Service Star, National Defense Medal, Presidential Unit Citation). While attending Brooklyn College on the G.I. Bill upon his return from Korea, Sam met Pearl Merkur on a blind date arranged by his best pal Fred Knauer. Sam and Pearl were married in 1956 and for 65 years before she passed earlier this year. In 1957, Pearl and Sam packed their U-Haul truck and headed for California. They each received a PhD from the University of California at Berkeley, and together they became professors at Humboldt State University. Sam was chair of the Sociology Department, and by all accounts much beloved by students, staff, and colleagues during his 30 years as a professor. In 1973, he founded the Humboldt Journal of Social Relations, which remains in publication to this day. Sam and Pearl founded the Altruistic Personality and Prosocial Behavior Institute at HSU. Together, they were awarded HSU’s Scholar of the Year prize in 1990. Sam has authored nine books and numerous other publications focusing on the subject of altruism and why some people risk their lives to help others. He published his most recent literary work this year, at age 91. A central theme that runs throughout his scholarship is the importance of kindness and courageousness, even in the darkest times. He was, at his core, an optimist. Sam was humble, caring, generous and always inquisitive. Sam is survived by his three sons and their families: Ron and Kristen, and their sons Evan and Daniel; David and Liz, their daughter Lauren and sons William and Harrison; and Ian and Valerie, and their sons Adam and Jason. He is survived also by his cousin Martin, whose parents were instrumental in making Sam’s arrival in the United States possible. Most recently, he had the unrelenting support of his sons following the heartbreaking loss of his beloved wife Pearl only nine months ago. He leaves behind close friends and colleagues too numerous to mention, among them Arthur Rose, his childhood friend from Bunce Court. He will be in our hearts for eternity. May his memory be a blessing. There will be a small private ceremony. The family intends to hold a celebration of life in early 2022.

Clinton Dean Rebik March 30th, 1966 – November 4th, 2021 Clinton Dean Rebik was born on March 30, 1966, in Brawley, CA, and passed away on November 4, 2021, in Eureka, CA due to esophageal cancer. He grew up in Brawley and graduated in 1984 from Brawley Union High School. He moved to Arcata to attend Humboldt State University in the fall of 1984 and remained in the area for the remainder of his life. After graduating from HSU in 1987 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre Arts, he became the Artistic Director for the Ferndale Repertory Theatre for several years, where he directed and acted in many productions. At the same time, he became a parttime black-jack dealer at Cher-Ae Heights Casino, eventually moving over to Blue Lake Casino. In 1999 he and an enthusiastic and intrepid group of theatre artists formed the Redwood Curtain Theatre, for which he was named Artistic Director. Redwood Curtain Theatre staged over 90 productions in twenty years, many of its most memorable directed by Clint. In 2006 he began working at Humboldt State University in the Office of the Registrar and was promoted to Registrar in 2012. Along the way, he completed his Masters’ Degree in Theatre Arts from HSU, also in 2012. Along with all aspects of theater, he loved traveling, snowboarding, hiking, lazily rafting rivers, and laying in the warm sunshine. But the thing he loved most in the world was spending time with his sons. He was preceded in death by his dad, Stephen Emil Rebik, his paternal grandparents Emil and Jean Elizabeth (Cox) Rebik, and maternal grandparents Marvin J. and Agnes Winifred (Hanlon) Young. He leaves his mom, Mary Ellen (Young) Rebik, sister Winifred Jean (Rebik) (Jude) Temple and their two daughters Katelyn Jean and Emma Danielle, his partner of 25 years Thomas Patrick Roscoe, and his two sons Matthew Dean Jioras and Alexander Harry Jioras, and their moms Christina Jioras and Peggy Metzger, plus numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and a multitude of friends. Clint made everyone in his life feel special. A Celebration of Life will be held on December 4, 2021, at Blue Lake Casino’s Sapphire Palace, from 3-5 p.m.

Holiday

Gift Guide 2021

T

ime to spread some joy. Grab your list — don’t forget your mask — and prepare to once again peruse Humboldt County’s bevy of shops. The windows are decorated and the lights are up. You’re bound to see some familiar folks in the aisles and over the counters while you browse, and that’s half the fun.

Turns out we don’t have to go bleary-eyed online or fund a zillionaire’s next rocket to find the perfect gifts, either. Our county’s shops and makers have indulgent skin treatments and bath bombs, dreamy cashmere, books from local authors, gorgeous locally made jewelry and pottery, and fair-trade gifts from afar. There are sweet trinkets, practical outerwear and splurges for everyone. For the kids, there are nature books, cookie cutters and even stuffed animals that benefit real animals. And if you haven’t gotten one already, might we suggest an all-ages NCJ Coloring Book, proceeds from which go back to contributing local artists? Psst … we’ve got stuff in the back just for the grown-ups, too. There’s a selection of goodies and glassware for the cannabis connoisseur in your life or just for unwinding from holiday stress. There are a few adult toys for unwinding, too. (Maybe hold onto that page — you know, for the sake of the children.) Treat your loved ones, yourself and your community by doing your holiday hunting and gathering right here in Humboldt.
