The Essenes, a sect of Jewish ascetics, saw the Jewish revolt against the Romans in 66–70 as the final end-time battle.

Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate To say that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice.

Bond Fiasco Editor: The recent “expose” of school bonds (“The Big Borrow,” Dec. 6) in quite a few local school districts begs a few questions. How is it that a school board composed of well-meaning community volunteers is given the responsibility to make such far-reaching financial decisions without any mandated oversight? Are there not any laws in place that govern the structuring of bonds and their repayment schedule? It appears that these recently issued bonds were brought to fruition by private entities that profited (some would say usuriously) in both the short and long-term at the expense of taxpayers and ultimately our school children. The bond industry sharks were kept at bay in Trinidad only to prey upon other districts that weren’t quite as street smart. This whole bond fiasco reeks of the same stench as the mortgage loan, real estate bubble and economic meltdown crises. Elliott Levin, Trinidad    

Aboard the Stephanie Editor: Go Cody Hills! (“Backyard of Boats,” Dec. 6.) Not only are you honoring the Lazio and Alioto families’ legacies by restoring Stephanie, you are also carrying on for the Machis and Shelter Cove. My grandfather, Pop Machi (1877-1969) was

born and raised in St. Elia, Sicily, and as a young man emigrated to the U.S. to settle in San Francisco. In 1909 he formed the San Francisco International Fish Company along with Tony Trapani and cousin Joe Alioto. The company evolved over the years and the partnership eventually included the Lazios. Both the Lazio and Alioto families came from the same fishing village in Sicily that my grandfather did. The Fish Company bought property at Shelter Cove in 1928, developing commercial fishing, mostly shipping out salmon. Pop’s eldest son, my dad, Tony, first came to the cove from San Francisco aboard one of the Fish Company’s vessels at age of 16 in 1928. It’s highly possible it was the International #3. Pop’s two other sons, my uncles Babe and Mario, would soon follow. The brothers worked on the dock during the summer of the late ’20s and early ’30s. In 1946, just after World War II, the Machi brothers bought the 40 acres surrounding the cove and began reestablishing and creating businesses that remain today. They left a legacy of sport and commercial fishing, motels, a campground, restaurant and snack bar, bar, tackle shop, boat launching and some pretty daring rescues.  I keep a fond eye on Stephanie knowing my dad, uncles and grandfather walked her decks many years ago.  Mary Ann Machi, Cutten

Growers gather in Redway for the Emerald Cup By Bob Doran


he crowd jostles for position around an octagonal glass case that glows in the dim light, peering in as if it held precious jewels. The case holds a couple of hundred green marijuana buds, entries in what’s billed as “the world’s only outdoor organic cannabis competition,” the annual Emerald Cup. Here in the Grower’s Pavilion tent, entrants are listed by number and strain, with breeding information that reads like something off a racing form. Entry No. 1, Obama Drone Strike, is a cross between Royal Kush and Humboldt Kush

grown from seed. A clone strain called Three Kings is a cross between OG, Sour Diesel and Headband. Ringo OG takes its name from the master breeder, Lawrence Ringo, a botanical wizard who works with the Southern Humboldt Seed Collective. It’s Saturday, Dec. 15, and this is the ninth annual Emerald Cup. It’s the biggest so far with 202 entries in the bud contest, 40 more in categories for “concentrates” and “super concentrates” including hashish, hash oil and edibles. It’s also the first cup in Humboldt, after moving to the Mateel Community Center in Redway from its original home in the

Area 101 compound near Laytonville. People young and old — but mostly young and mostly male — cram into The Grower’s Pavilion, a long tent below the Mateel’s main hall. Many are ostensibly medical cannabis patients, although no one seems to be demanding 215 cards. A hay bale couch splits the room, and people sit to roll a joint or smoke a bowl. Vendors on either side offer classic bongs, the latest high tech vaporizers, books on cannabis, organic hydroponic supplies and bioengineered seeds so you can grow your own Blood Wreck Trinity Purple Urkle Space Queen. The Home Grown Stage at one end of the room has a DJ backing artists like Brooklyn-born Rasta Rocker T and Humboldt home grown reggae star Ishi Dube. At the other end, an Indian bedspread door leads to another tent where forums are held on growing organic weed, breeding new strains and using testing labs to analyze soil or crops. Standing in a cold drizzle outside of the pavilion, Emerald Cup founder Tim Blake offers a bit of history. (He had been worried that snow in the Mendocino hills would stop some from attending, but the event sold out). The first cup, in 2004, was his way of celebrating the cannabis harvest while emulating the sort of judging you find at a county fair for apples, jam or livestock. “It was more of a wild party,” he recalls, done on the cheap with no sponsors. It’s never made money. He almost abandoned it last year because of the federal crackdown on Mendocino’s medical pot scene but marshaled on. This year he lined up support from the Canadian cannabis culture magazine Skunk and the website among others and ramped things up a notch. Moving to the Mateel, augmented

with a few tents, allowed for more attendees, more vendors and an enhanced education component with more panel discussions. Stand-up comic Ngaio Bealum is one of the emcee/moderators for panels in the Mateel Hall on topics like pot legalization, the federal crackdown, and cannabidiols, aka CBDs, compounds in the magic plant that reputedly cure everything from arthritis and Alzheimer’s to cancer. “I’m all for cannabis, at almost all the time, although it’s not for everyone,” says Ngaio, who also was at last year’s cup. “It’s a growth industry; it makes for sustainable jobs, jobs that won’t leave the county.” And, he points out, not just jobs for growers and trimmers: The industry creates ancillary jobs for soil and nutrient companies, alarm companies, accountants, lawyers and specialty magazines. Down in the Pavilion, a grower from Sonoma County stands between the bud display and another glass case holding fanciful glass bongs, awards that will be presented later like Oscars on Academy Award night. The 37-year-old grower calls himself Cherry Jack, borrowing the name from his entry in the contest, No. 162, a cherry phenotype of a strain called Jack the Ripper. “It just happens to smell like cherry; cherry lemonade or cherry Sweet-Tarts,” he explains, noting that the seeds come from Green Avengers Genetics, a company with a booth across the way. Cherry Jack makes part of his living growing medical cannabis; he’s also a day trader and a poker player, a gambler at heart. “And,” he adds, “I’m also a husband and a father of two, married 14 years.” Jack says he has a 215 card because glaucoma has made him blind in one eye.

Cannabis hasn’t cured his glaucoma, but he says it reduces the pressure so he can cut back on prescription drugs. “This truly is medicine. Yes, it gets you high, gets you happy, but it’s more than that.” He says he entered the Emerald Cup competition because he’s “a true believer in medical cannabis” and because he wanted to see how he’d stack up again against “the local competition.” Local, in this case, is the fabled Emerald Triangle, Humboldt, Mendocino and Trinity counties, birthplace of designer cannabis. And the competition is fierce. Along with the bong awards come major bragging rights. And this year, the grower behind the top strain wins a trip to Jamaica as first prize. A nine-judge panel, nicknamed the Supreme Court, chooses the winners after a blind tasting. Each judge gets a bag with one-gram samples of each strain, and rates them for looks, smell, taste and, most important (scored double) is how it makes you feel: the high. “Some make you happy, some make you crabby,” says Judge Pearl, who like most of the other judges would only provide her first name. “I like the ones that pick me up and make me creative.” Once each judge has a score for all samples, they gather to compare notes, resample as needed, and then reach consensus on 20 winners. Before the winners are announced, cup organizers give civil rights lawyer Tony Serra a lifetime achievement award for his work in marijuana law reform — a glass bong in the shape of Lady Justice holding her scales. Speaking of his long, “wondrous romance” with cannabis and the law, Serra promises, “I’m not finished yet.” Two of the judges, a woman introduced only as Nicky and a white-bearded

man called Swami, let the honors roll. They work through a long list, offering judges’ comments on the top strains. Second place goes to No. 23, Cry Baby OG, grown from a clone with “diesel Lemon Pledge unwhirling flavor,” according to Swami. As the tension mounts, Nicky wonders aloud, “Who’s going to Jamaica?” The grand prize winner is strain No. 47, listed only as a Chemdog. Strain history: “Ask Jerry Garcia.” The judges describe 47 as “the smoothest yet, A-plus crystals, very sticky, ridiculous überstink, nasturtium and gasoline and fresh earth, complex, enticing — top notch shit.” With his carefully trimmed goatee, his hair combed up to a semi-Mohawk peak, the exultant winner, identified only as Leo, doesn’t have the working man look of most of the other growers. He explains that his strain is a cross of Chemdog No. 4 and Star Dog, a creation of his new company, Aficionado Seeds. He thanks his girlfriend and makes a major shout out to his homies (“This is for you, Laytonville!”) with special thanks to his soil supplier who “makes the best compost in the world.” A little while later, down in the Grower’s Pavilion, Leo still seems amazed that he won. He recalls dreaming about growing pot when he was serving in the military during the Iraq war, stationed in Baghdad. Now he is living that dream. With a cold, half-smoked joint in one hand, he finally reads the laminated certificate he holds in the other and it registers. “I can’t believe I’m going to Jamaica,” he says with a huge smile before adding, “Hey, does anyone have a lighter?” l • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Dec. 20, 2012



Pedreros to be Hospitalized

Claudia Pedreros will be sent to a state mental hospital next month, her attorney said Tuesday, after being found not guilty by reason of insanity on Monday in the death of her daughter. Pedreros was accused of drowning the 2½ -year-old girl in the Trinity River in 2011. (See “Robert’s Vow,” in the North Coast Journal in June 2011. Her trial had both a guilt phase and a sanity phase, and both concluded Monday, said attorney Russ Clanton. A jury found her guilty of involuntary manslaughter and child abuse then concluded she was insane at the time of those crimes. ● ECONOMY, EMPLOYMENT, GOVERNMENT / BY RYAN BURNS / DEC. 17, 5:04 P.M.

Ancient Study Returns from the Dead

Tuesday afternoon, the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors will consider a resolution that at first glance looks like a simple declaration of “Yay jobs! Let’s go get us some!” But the document (pdf on our website) would appear to commit the county to a variety of ambitious economic development projects based on some dubious claims made in an economic report from 1997, back when Bill Clinton was president, Titanic ruled the box office and The Spice Girls were tearing up the charts. The resolution, which was prepared by an amorphous citizens committee called the Humboldt Bay Harbor Working Group, is nearly identical to one that’s been making the rounds of local city councils, with vocal support from east-west rail advocates. It is being brought to the board by First District Supervisor Rex Bohn and Fourth District Supervisor Virginia Bass. As we reported back in August, the document cites figures from a 15- (now almost 16-) year-old report by the late U.C. Berkeley economist Dr. John Quigley, who had been hired by the Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District to analyze the financial impact of a variety of port development projects. These included deepening the harbor, which has since been completed. At the time the report was written, the north-south rail line through the Eel River Canyon was still up and running. Even when the report was released in January 1997, Quigley’s rosy projections of our harbor’s economic potential were deemed by many to be “unrealistic.” (See links on our site to a 1997 Journal story and a 1998 memo to business leaders written by Gregg Foster, then with the Humboldt Area


Foundation.) In the years since, the Harbor District has updated its economic strategy several times, including a 2007 strategic plan that relied on more current data and analysis. The Quigley report is so old that the harbor district doesn’t even keep it around anymore. The Journal sent an email to each supervisor this morning asking for comment on the resolution. Second District Supervisor Clif Clendenen said he wanted to check with the harbor district — the designated lead agency for all things port-related — to make sure the resolution dovetails with its efforts, but he had yet to do so. Third District Supervisor Mark Lovelace said, “I am concerned about the use of old and un-verifiable data, but I’m also concerned about bypassing both the Harbor District and our ongoing Prosperity 2012 process, and committing the county to two separate, year-long planning processes without any defined scope, budget or staffing.” The processes Lovelace refers to are laid out in the resolution’s six action items, which follow a long string of whereases. The first process would commit the county to “developing within one year a cohesive and coordinated marketing plan … to attract maritimeoriented businesses to Humboldt Bay.” The second process would have the county work with the harbor district to “create a one-year planning process” to boost port activity by 2025. Port marketing and development are already within the purview of the harbor district. The resolution also asks the board to commit to supporting — and promoting — a rail connection to the national rail system, deep-draft container shipping, an offshore fishing reef, a marine highway and more. We have yet to hear from Supervisors Bohn, Bass or Fifth District Supervisor Ryan Sundberg. ●


John (Still) Says “Forgive”

A small plaque has appeared on the white wall of the Clarke Museum near where John Tutuska used to sit meditating in the sun. Tutuska, well-known and beloved by many in town, died in October, and Clarke Street Plaza overflowed with mourners several weeks after. One of his dying requests, says his friend Lynna Ridgeway, was that a plaque

Martin Luther predicted the end of the world would occur no later than 1600.

be placed on the wall with a saying he chose from “A Course in Miracles,” a book whose guidance he followed and shared with others. The Clarke Museum approved the request, Ridgeway used money from Tutuska’s estate to produce the plaque, and on Dec. 7 the museum’s incoming board president, Roy Sheppard, installed it. Ridgeway says Tutuska chose a statement from the “Course” that “means that when an old grievance is forgiven it becomes a sacred experience enlightening the time and space around it.” Long-time Old Town frequenters likely will recall the sign Tutuska placed in his apartment window, above Ramone’s, that simply said, “Forgive.” COURTS, MEDICAL / BY HEIDI WALTERS / DEC. 14, 4:32 P.M.

Pain Doc Loses Her License

Effective at 5 p.m. today, former Eureka doctor Fran Day will not be allowed to practice medicine in the state of California. The doctor’s license already had been suspended for more than two years. Today the Medical Board of California officially revoked it, after Day, who specialized in pain treatment and psychiatry and practiced medicine since 1989, failed to respond or file a Notice of Defense to accusations filed with the medical board against her by several patients in October 2010. Day’s accusers said she “engaged in repeated acts of unprofessional conduct” and gross negligence, including prescribing lithium to a patient who had tried to commit suicide with a lithium overdose two weeks before; prescribing controlled substances to addicts; prescribing drugs without first conducting an examination and checking with the patients’ other doctors and consulting medical records; and prescribing “excessive doses of controlled substances.” Day also was accused of being “grossly negligent in her management” of a patient who had an overdose. That latter patient, called “E.C.” in the medical board’s documents, also complained to the Humboldt County District Attorney’s office, and the D.A. filed charges in April 2011 accusing Day of prescribing controlled substances to five patients, including E.C., known to be addicts; self-prescribing a controlled substance; and delaying or obstructing an emergency medical technician. (The Journal reported on this alleged incident back in March 2010, after Day had disappeared and taken with her all of her patients’ medical records. The mother of the patient claimed Day clung to the ambulance as it tried to drive away. Day told us her side of the story in July 2010.) In September 2011, Day pled no contest to four counts of felony prescribing to an addict. She was sentenced to four years probation, 90 days in custody and 500 community service hours. She also was ordered not to practice medicine. You can read the entire decision by the medical board, including opinions from a medical expert on the various drugs Day prescribed for patients with conditions including bi-polar disorder, on the board’s website. ● continued on page 11 Astrologers predicted a world-ending deluge on Feb. 1, 1524.

Marine Protected Areas to Go Active Next Week

New marine protected areas will go into effect next Wednesday, Dec. 19. (See a clickable map on our website for their location and dimensions.) These “underwater parks” are the result of a long and at times contentious process, though stakeholders here on the north coast managed to reach consensus on where the protected areas should


be. (No other region in the state managed that feat.) As with state parks, the marine protected areas are designed to preserve precious and sensitive ecosystems from human disturbance. A press release issued earlier today by Ocean Conservancy and the Natural Resources Defense Council said in part: On December 19, Californians will celebrate the grand opening of a series of underwater parks — also called marine protected areas — that aim to create a more sustainable future. … The 19 underwater parks span from just south of Fort Bragg up to the Oregon border, covering approximately 137 square miles, or 13 percent of the region. They include Pyramid Point’s rugged coastline; Point St. George Reef, home to the second largest nesting seabird colony south of Alaska; and waters at the mouth of waterways like Ten Mile River that are critical for salmon and steelhead populations. … The network protects an average of nearly 16 percent of California waters.

Inmate Dies in Humboldt County Jail

There’s not much information in this press release about what might have caused

the death of a 35-year-old inmate at the county jail this morning. The Sheriff’s Office simply says there is “no sign of foul play.” Here’s the press release: On 12-12-2012, approximately 6:40 am a Humboldt County Correctional Officer was notified by an inmate that another inmate, identified as Jonathan Michael Sorrell, 35 years from Hoopa, was having a medical issue. The Correctional Officer immediately went to Sorrell’s aid and called for jail medical, extra correctional staff and an ambulance to respond. Initially Sorrell was breathing, however while the Correctional Staff was with Sorrell he stopped breathing and they began C.P.R. until they were relieved by jail medical staff. After an ambulance arrived at the facility a physician determined that Sorrell was deceased. The Humboldt County Coroner was summoned to the scene. There is no sign of foul play. An autopsy will be scheduled by the Humboldt County Coroners Office to determine the cause of death. ●


The Hoopa Valley Tribe is forming a national guard, of sorts, to protect the land and tribal members from the human dangers that lurk in its woods, the Two Rivers Tribune reports. The new Hoopa Tribal Citizen Corps arose in response to “months of incidents caused by non-tribal members trespassing on tribal lands.” The Tribune story offers many examples of these scary run-ins, including this one: On the evening of October 14 and early morning of October 15, four young men from Hoopa were on an outing in the woods eight or nine miles up Mill Creek Road when they stumbled across an illegal white plastic irrigation line that stretched as far as they could see. Within minutes they were being hunted through the woods with gunshots ringing in the air. The ordeal lasted more than four hours. They were eventually rescued after they texted a friend, who relayed the messages to Hoopa Tribal Police. A link to the story is on our website.

One Little Doomsday and How It Grew By Carrie Peyton Dahlberg


t was an obscure dating system of a long-dead civilization. Then one paragraph in a 1966 book. Then a foreign film. A U.S. television special. More books and a flurry of magazines. A worldwide harmonic convergence. And in retrospect, that was the small stuff. After the Internet hit, and social networks showed how quickly panic can go pandemic, the thing wrapped itself around our imaginations like a python. It’s 2012. We’re all gonna die. Or become enlightened. Or something. “There’s conspiracy theory versions, Christian versions, Buddhist and Muslim versions. … Once technology started to let it go viral, it became this sort of monster.” That’s Kevin Whitesides, who wrote a thesis on 2012 millennialism for his master’s degree in religious studies at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. Whitesides did his undergraduate work at Humboldt State University, and he’s back in Eureka for now before starting on his doctorate. If you’ve got a 2012 question, he probably knows the answer. He knows where the French have cordoned off a mountain path, worried it will be overrun by people hoping to survive the coming flood. He knows about the panicked emails NASA keeps getting, asking about planetary collisions. He knows that of the 3,000 or so recent books delving into the year of doom, 1,000-plus have “2012” emblazoned on their covers. He knows that back in 1987, thousands of people converged on sacred spots worldwide because a onetime art history professor named Jose Arguelles said it would avert the 2012 Armageddon. “His idea was that they needed to get 144,000 people to go to these sacred sites all over the world and just sort of meditate and pray at the same time,” Whitesides said. “If that didn’t happen then we’d be on the road to bad things in 2012 KEVIN WHITESIDES, WHOSE PASSION FOR THINGS APOCRYPHAL BEGAN AT HSU, PLANS TO JOIN OTHER SCHOLARS ON DEC. 21 AT THE MAYAN SITE CHICHEN ITZA.

… and if it did, utopia in 2012.” Press reports on actual attendance are widely contradictory, Whitesides said, but at the time Arguelles told the media that it worked. Oh, and that round calendar, the iconic image of Mayan doom? Whitesides points out that it’s Aztec, not Mayan. No one has found any Mayan calendars, at least in the physical sense of a stone, mural or monument meant to depict the passage of time. There are just dates, found on artifacts here and there, from which a calendar system has been deduced. The leap from a few dates to global disaster began in this one paragraph that Whitesides sent us from Michael Coe’s book, The Maya: “The idea of cyclical creations and destructions is a typical feature of Mesoamerican religions, as it is of Oriental. The Aztec, for instance, thought that the universe had passed through four such ages, and that we were now in the fifth, to be destroyed by earthquakes. The Maya thought along the same lines, in terms of eras of great length, like the Hindu kalpas. There is a suggestion that each of these measured 13 baktuns, or something less than 5,200 years, and that Armageddon would overtake the degenerate peoples of the world and all creation on the final day of the thirteenth. Thus, following the Thompson correlation, our present universe would have been created in 3113 BC, to be annihilated on December 24, 2011, when the Great Cycle of the Long Count reaches completion.” Uh, yeah. Last year. Coe tweaked the dates in later editions. There have been lots of other troubling 2012 dates, too, but Dec. 21 has edged ahead in popular imagination, although the exact timing seems iffy. Maybe sunrise. Maybe 11:11, but whether a.m. or p.m. is disputed. Whitesides will watch Dec. 21 unfold at Chichen Itza on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, where he’ll be joining a group of scholars. Around the world, he expects parties and indifference, enlightenment and death. “I have no doubt that people will have all sorts of spiritual epiphanies,” he said. “There’s going to be all sorts of self-fulfilling prophesies,” because believers are psychologically primed for something big, in good ways or in bad. “There will be lots of unfortunate situations with people getting really scared or thinking they know what to do, like jump off a rock and fall into a time portal.” Please don’t. ●

The Four Bigfoots of the Apocalypse


By Ryan Burns

ver the last couple of weeks, eyewitnesses in the Willow Creek area have reportedly spotted several loping, bipedal mammals which they believe to be harbingers of End Times. Many locals, noting similarities to Biblical prophecies, have concluded that the mysterious creatures must be the Four Bigfoots of the Apocalypse. “Oh, they’re definitely ’squatches,” said local celebrity researcher James “Bobo” Fay. “I been ’squatchin for 25 years now, and this here’s the real deal.” Fay, best known for co-hosting the Animal Planet program “Finding Bigfoot,” followed this pronouncement with his impression of the elusive beast’s vocalizations. Cupping his hands to his mouth, he emitted a long, mournful bellow. “Kina like that,” he said with a faraway stare, “like a sireny kinda sound.” The first reported sighting happened two weeks ago along the banks of the Trinity River, not far from local bookseller Bigfoot Books. “That’s not a coincidence,” said store owner Steven Streufert. “I see ’em around here all the time.” But this Bigfoot behaved differently than any the bookseller had seen before. “He was aggressive,” Streufert said. “He conquered that picnic table over there. Picked it up and tossed it like a toy. In fact, he seemed intent on conquering stuff. Conquered a propane tank over at the hardware store. Conquered a little freckly kid, and then just took off into the woods, con-


quering everything in his path.” The second sighting came last Thursday when a Bigfoot reportedly ransacked the campsite of a family visiting from Red Bluff. “He run off as soon as we pulled in here,” recalled Joseph Logan, whose wife and daughters declined to be interviewed. “Weird thing is, though, as soon as he disappeared into them woods all the other critters started attackin’ each other.” Logan said that dogs from a neighboring campsite began fighting, followed by the birds in the trees and the creatures of the earth. “And lo, we hightailed it out of there,” Logan said. “Place done turned evil.” A third reported sighting happened just two nights later, when McKinleyville resident Rhonda Simmons had to swerve off the road to avoid what she called “a friggin’ huge black Bigfoot.” “It just stepped into the middle of my lane and stared me down,” she recalled, her voice quavering at the memory. “My headlights — they made his eyeballs glow this creepy blue. He was looking right at me.” Simmons said she screeched to a halt beneath a billboard that read “Nothing’s too hard for Jesus” and looked back to see the black beast running straight toward her. “It was breathing heavy and growling,” she said. “And I know this sounds crazy, but it sounded like words, like ‘one two, two one,’ over and over.” Simmons believes that the Bigfoot was referring to the date of Dec. 21, which ancient Mayan calendars and the Internet have designated as doomsday. On Monday afternoon, outside Ray’s Food Place, the Journal spoke to a glassy-eyed kale farmer named Pete Moss and a rotund biker who gave the name Hollis “Jumbo” Hell. Moss wore only a bejeweled trucker’s cap and green corduroy overalls while Hell was dressed in flip-flops, black jeans and a puffy gold

49ers jacket. Both men said they’d come to town in hopes of spotting a Bigfoot. “Plus I’m in Dutch with the wife,” Hell admitted. Moss leaned on a stack of plasticwrapped firewood bundles, an American Spirit in one hand and fried chickenon-a-stick in the other. “They’re naturally shy,” he said, referring to Bigfoots, presumably. Just then, a towering figure, covered head-to-toe in matted yellow fur, emerged from behind the outdoor ice machines. Moss, Hell and this reporter stared in disbelief at its distended burlap fingers, its wet, staved-in nose and the clouds of hot breath rising from its sallow lips. The immense beast — a healthy male, we couldn’t help but notice — was fixated on an apoplectic terrier yapping in the back of a nearby Subaru. Hunched and wheezy, the Bigfoot smelled of vomit and brewer’s yeast. Distracted by the slavering mutt, the golden Sasquatch ignored us — until Hell, trembling with excitement, fumbled his bag of Skittles and sent a rosary of rainbow candies clattering to the asphalt. The fearsome blond Chewbacca did a double take and, with a panicked fart, turned on his leathery heel and sprinted east, taking huge, bounding strides through the parking lot of the Raging Creek diner. Moss dropped his meat stick and ran after the creature shouting, “Behold, a pale Bigfoot!” And the smell that rolled off him was death. And Hell followed with him. ●

hilip Anderson didn’t look too far gone. Blood was dripping from his mouth, his shirtsleeve was torn, he was pale and his eyes were slightly sunken. But his demeanor was positively chipper. Anderson was happily teaching the living how to survive the zombie apocalypse. This was back in October during the Zombie Invasion of Bayshore Mall, but what Anderson knows as a Red Cross preparedness coordinator could come in really handy now, what with the end of the world and all. “The zombie invasion is like every other major disaster,” he said. The basic message, boiled down by Zombie Phil, was borrowed from the Boy Scouts: “Be prepared.” Say for example, “You can’t get to the grocery store because there’s zombies in the way.” You’ll need to have some food on hand. “And if you’re bitten by a zombie, what are you going to do? Do you have a first aid kit?” The Red Cross suggests getting food and first aid supplies ready in a “go kit” that you can pick up and run with. Think about including water, a flashlight, batteries, family contact information, and more. “And how are you going to escape your house if zombies are inside? You need to know the escape routes,” Anderson said. The overall message: Yes, you can make it past the end of the world — or other less spectacular disasters like earthquakes or tsunamis. The well-prepared Armageddon survivor will need a “go kit” for life on the run, plus basic supplies for hunkering down at home in case that looks like a better way to keep on breathing. The Red Cross recommends getting ready with:

• Water: one gallon per person, per day (plan for three days of evacuation or two weeks at home without help) • Food: Non-perishable, easy-to-prepare items for three days to two weeks • Flashlight • Batteries • First aid kit • Battery-powered or hand-crank radio (ideally a NOAA Weather Radio) • Cell phone with chargers • Multi-purpose tool • Toothbrush (and other sanitation and personal hygiene items) • Medications (7-day supply) and other medical needs • Copies of personal documents (passports, birth certificates, proof of address, deed/lease to home, insurance policies, medications list and medical info) • Family and emergency contact information • Emergency blanket • Maps • Cash • Personalized supplies: Baby bottles, diapers, leashes, pet dishes, etc. • Extras: Matches, rain gear, towels, work gloves, tools/supplies for securing your home, extra clothing, hat and sturdy shoes, plastic sheeting, duct tape, scissors, bleach, blankets or sleeping bags, whistle, N95 or surgical masks and a long, sharp blade for severing zombie brain from zombie spine — the only known way to “neutralize” one. l

Plaza Prophecies By Andrew Goff


K. You’ve heard what the “experts” have to say about how the world will end on Dec. 21. But we wanted to go to the source of real liberated wisdom in Humboldt County, the Arcata Plaza, and see what the amateur eschatologers there envisioned for the demise of our world. We did not take “I don’t believe the world is going to end” for an answer from the Plaza posse. We demanded they dig deeper and get creative.  This is what they predicted. l

The World Ends Every Day

(707) 444-3318 2120 4TH STREET EUREKA



By Heidi Walters


eep under a hill in Petrolia, in a 20-by-400-foot tube of concrete and steel, the Church of Spiritual Technology — Scientology’s archival arm — has squirreled away the words of the religious group’s founder, L.Ron Hubbard. Some are preserved in gold and enveloped in clouds of argon, an inert gas. The church has spent tens of millions on the Petrolia bunker and others elsewhere. They’re supposed to be good for 1,000 years and able to withstand nuclear blasts. But the rest of humanity likely won’t want to rely on the Scientologists’ take on things. So, here’s a question: What should we have in our bunker? What should we leave behind for the survivors to rebuild civilization? Or to amuse the aliens as they pick over our bones? What were we, and did we matter? Sounds like a question for a philosopher, so we call John Powell, in the philosophy department up at Humboldt State University. Don’t worry, he’s not pompous. Philosophers, he says, are more like the rotorooter operators. “We’re rooting out bad thinking,” he says. “We’re catching people in making mistakes.” And, so, the apocalypse bunker … ? “First of all, nothing is going to be preserved,” Powell says. “Sooner or later, the sun is going to go nova … so the idea that we’re going to preserve things forever is just ludicrous. We and everything we have done is going to go away.” Even if we wanted to shove stuff into a bunker — Powell admits he’d like to bring along his Shakespeare and Plato, for starters — it couldn’t possibly all fit. Better, Powell says, to think of the world as our bunker and take care of what’s in it now, while it lasts. Powell suspects apocalyptic thinking might be an attempt to shirk this duty. “I think it’s kind of a cop-out,” he says. “I think lots of people think the end of the world is happening because they don’t want to keep going on.” You know: The whole world’s going to hell in a handbasket — wars, environmental scares, psychopaths, sociopaths, fiscal

devil’s diving boards, personal troubles — why not just end it all with a big bang-up catastrophe to end all catastrophes? Apocalyptic thinkers can get so wrapped up in the Big Event, Powell says, they neglect to live in the present, to find value in particular moments, people and tasks. “There are so many things that are worth living for,” he says. “I’ve got a couple of little kids, and they help remind me of that. I tend to live in my head, thinking about abstract ideas; they want to go out and look for owl pellets in the woods.” Contrarily, Powell says it’s possible that belief in an apocalypse allows some people to find meaning in their world.

What should we leave behind for the survivors to rebuild civilization? Or to amuse the aliens as they pick over our bones?

Well, then, what is it exactly that makes humans desire, crave and expect an apocalypse? One answer, for many, is that the Bible has said there will be an apocalypse — and that they’ll be sheltered from it (so the bunker question’s moot). A 2010 poll by the PEW Research Center found that 41 percent of Americans believe Jesus will return in this century. Jews and Muslims also believe an apocalypse is coming, as do some other religions. But many nontraditionally religious people get wrapped up in predictions like this Mayan thing, as

Wovoka, the founder of the Ghost Dance movement, predicted that a new millennium would occur in 1890.

well. One in 10 people in the world believes the world ends this year, according to a poll conducted for Reuters by Ipsos Global Public Affairs. Humans have been predicting apocalypses since long before Christ, says Stephen Jenkins, a professor in HSU’s religious studies department. Jenkins, who’s Buddhist and usually teaches courses on Buddhism and Hinduism, taught a special course on apocalyptic thought in 2000, called Why2k. “For a staggering amount of time, almost every generation has had groups that believed or wondered if they were the ones who were going to witness the end of the world,” Jenkins says. Why? That can’t really be answered, Jenkins says, although he has a couple of theories. One is that apocalyptic thinking is a projection of an individual’s own mortality. “Everybody faces the end of time for themselves,” he says. “So that day may arrive at any moment. And they project this on their world, on their culture.” The other possible reason for apocalyptic thinking is, as Powell also suggests, that it makes time meaningful. Jenkins tells a story about a student who took his apocalypse class. He was talking about numerology and how easy it is to debunk some of the weird mathematical calculations apocalyptic thinkers dwell on by, for instance, pointing out that the reason people think in terms of 10 is simply because they have 10 fingers. “This woman looked at me and said, ‘You mean, this could all just be going on and on and on?’” Jenkins recalls. It rattled her to think there was no cosmic plan, that time was not going anywhere.” So, whenever it comes, what will you do on the last day of your world? Maybe you’ll rise, open the shades, see the yellow light on the poplar trees, the pink-suffused clouds against the rain-washed blue sky, and say, my, what a pretty morning. No, no — don’t go wondering how you’re ever gonna fit that sunrise into your bunker. Just grab your morning brew and enjoy it. l

Break out the Crab Pots


For newbies: For those looking to learn the sport of kayak crabbing, Mouton offers free classes through Pacific Outfitters. Class schedules are posted at the Eureka store and on the LCKA Facebook page. He also organizes several species-specific charity tournaments a year. The Trinidad Rock Fish Wars in October draw 70-100 participants and raise money for the McKinleyville State Park. Shelter Cove’s “Gimme Shelter” tournament draws more than 200.

t was a perfect winter day in Trinidad — blue skies, bright sun and ocean breezes. Just right for hauling crab pots around on a kayak. Yes, a kayak. While they may not be the most conventional crabbing vessels around, kayaks have a growing fan base, according to Greg Mounton, who helps coordinate the Lost Coast Kayak Anglers. The social network of more than 150 people is picking up a few new members each week, he said, joining other participants who go online to find fishing partners, trade tips and condition updates, or just brag about their latest catch. Some prefer fishing poles, but crabbing contraptions aplenty were around earlier this month when 15 enthusiasts showed up for “Crabbing for a Cause,” a kayak crabbing tournament in Trinidad Harbor to benefit North Coast Stand Down. The basic idea combines elements of surfing, fishing and kayaking. Just strap some pots onto your sea kayak, squeeze into a dry suit and power through the surf until you find a good spot to drop your pots. Spend the next few hours paddling around the bay and surfing the break, then return to haul up your pots. A few hours later you can be enjoying fresh crab for dinner, the perfect end to a perfect winter day. At the tournament, each kayak crabber had a different system, custom-fit for his style. One crabber used a dive kayak, a wooden Greenland paddle, and rings — a lightweight alternative to traditional

crab pots. Another used a wide sit-ontop kayak and pots. Most wore drysuits, but some preferred wetsuits for their maneuverability. Robert Bray of Eureka, who snagged an impressive 2½ pound crab during the tournament, said his favorite crabbing spots are pinnacles of rock, under which crabs like to hide. Once at one of those spots, Bray demonstrated the careful way he drops his rings or pots off the side of his kayak, and the even more careful way he pulls them up. “My sea kayak is pretty stable,” he said, “so I just throw my legs over the side and pull up the pots between my legs.”

Hon-Ming Chen, leader of a Taiwanese cult, claimed God would come to Earth in a flying saucer in 1998.

(Bray is also an avid kayak fisher. “I’ve paddled out seven miles before to get fish,” he said.) The tournament was organized by Pacific Outfitters’ staff members Mouton and Aaron Ostrom, with area businesses donating coffee, doughnuts, beer and gear, and prizes awarded for the heaviest crab and heaviest total haul. The winners took home new crab pots and crab rings, which are popular with kayak crabbers. The rings are made up of a set of concentric metal rings with a small metal cage in the middle for bait. Tournament participants listed chicken, goose and duck meat as favorite bait options, but “oily” fish heads were popular, too.  Entrants paid $25 for the privilege of “crabbing for a cause,” and many donated some or all of their catch to the Vet Center, which held a crab feast fundraiser on Sunday night to raise more money for Stand Down. (In the competition, Andy Lauerman won for both heaviest crab at 3.01 pounds and heaviest limit at 25 pounds, 15 ounces.) Some of the tournament participants were seasoned veterans of the sport, while others were just learning. Mouton said, “Some folks try to turn [kayak crabbing] into an elite sport. We don’t do that. We welcome newbies.” Trinidad Harbor is a favorite crabbing spot for kayakers, but many have luck kayaking in Humboldt Bay, too. According to Mouton, “You can even catch crabs from the local docks on a good day.” Wherever you go, Ostrom said, the sport has a few basic requirements. “You need a drysuit or a wetsuit, a radio and a partner. This is a buddy sport.” He stressed, “Always check the forecast. Low or no wind is important, but conditions can change fast.” One crabber recounted being rescued by the Coast Guard recently after finding himself in choppy surf and high wind, unable to get back to the beach. “They were great about it,” he said. “They asked me if I was OK and if I caught anything.” He laughed. “I try not to call the Coast Guard more than once a year.”  By the afternoon, the tournament participants were making their way back to the beach, having caught their limit. They pulled their crabs from buckets, pots and kayak hatches. As they waited for their haul to be weighed and ranked, they drank beer and coffee, squinting into the afternoon sun. Not a bad way to spend a perfect winter day. l If you would like to write a Get Out! Column, please email Journal Editor Carrie Peyton Dahlberg at

dvd The End of the World on DVD

The end of the world isn’t all zombie plagues and alien invasions (although sometimes it’s both — see Night of the Comets). We’ll skip the disaster-porn of Roland Emmerich’s 2012. Instead, the following list rounds up some lesser-known cinema to aid in mustering up appropriate dread for our impending doom. In the pre-apocalypse genre, Abel Ferrara’s 4:44 Last Day on Earth takes a spiritual approach to the end, with a bohemian couple spending their last hours together in anticipation of environmental disaster. Similar, but less cutesy than Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, the Canadian drama Last Night (1998) features various Toronto denizens in their final hours. In the cataclysmic-pandemic genre, the 1995 miniseries of Stephen King’s The Stand is an underrated gem recommended as distraction between episodes of The Walking Dead. In Michael Haneke’s subtle Time of the Wolf (2003), a family flees the city for their country home when a livestock disease contaminates most of the water in France. Perhaps we will literally lose our senses at the end. In 2011’s Perfect Sense, Ewan McGregor and Eva Green fall in love amidst a pandemic that causes them to lose each of their five senses. The eerie arthouse classic La Jetée (1962) by the late Chris Marker was the inspiration for Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys, both sending a prisoner back in time to try to stop a worldwide catastrophe. Quintet (1979) is Robert Altman’s surprisingly obscure thriller set during a new ice age in which Paul Newman finds himself part of an elaborate “survival of the fittest” game. Sometimes the world just goes sterile as in 2006’s Children of Men or the 1990 adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale. In the wonderfully deranged future of Zardoz (1984), it is men who are sterile, except for Sean Connery, a scantily clad “Brutal” who kills God and invades a community of bored immortals. For a mystical take on the end, Australian director Peter Weir’s The Last Wave (1977) is an overlooked thriller in which a lawyer representing a group of Aborigines experiences visions of an impending cataclysm. David Duchovny and Mimi Rogers are swingers who become born-again Christians preparing for Armageddon in 1991’s provocative The Rapture. This year’s Take Shelter has Michael Shannon obsessively building a storm shelter following visions of a coming apocalypse, alienating his friends and family on a hunch. Finally, there is 1984’s Night of the Comet. When a passing comet turns most of the human race into zombies, two valley girls go on a mall-shopping spree set to the tune of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” Sure, why not? — Aimee Hennessy Aimee Hennessey is co-owner of La Dolce Video in Arcata.

The End (or Whatever) Parties for the end of time By Bob Doran


he end of the world Friday? I doubt it, but who knows? Maybe those ancient Mayans knew something we don’t. Or maybe they simply created a calendar that tracked the passing of time, the changing seasons. Friday is also the solstice: We officially shift from autumn to winter, a traditional time to gather together to mark transition. How do we respond to a turning point? We throw a party. We beat drums, maybe blow a horn, strum a guitar, drop a needle in the groove, point a cursor at some special digital track, make the music flow. Friday may not be our last day on Earth, but it’s as good a day as any to have a party. Suppose the apocalypse was pending. What’s the last song you’d play before you go? We posed the question to a few music makers as we researched various end-o parties planned for the weekend. Gabe Pressure, half of the Pressure Anya DJ duo, quickly chose R.E.M.’s ‘80s classic “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine),” an obvious selection since it incorporates everything from earthquakes and extreme weather to the Rapture and dreams of knives. Gabe and “Zombie Slayer” Anya are spinning for a Zombie Apocalypse World End Party Friday night at Nocturnum, with special guests Itchie Fingaz and VJ CJ (visuals) plus a zombie slayer dance by Gypsy Bella from Bella Vita Fire Dance Company. But

wait, R.E.M. for zombies? “Zombies like those jamz too,” says Gabe. It’s the End of the World as We Know It is what they’re calling the party at Six Rivers Friday night with Bandon from The Works, aka DJ Zephyr, providing the soundtrack. His last? He said it was a difficult choice, “but I’ll go with ‘The Game’ by Queen, a song about letting oneself love another. It’s magical.” Matt Jackson of Missing Link Records selected a sweet love song from the ‘60s, “The Way I Feel Inside” by The Zombies. “Why? I’m not really sure, the answer just popped out right when I read the question.” Matt ‘n Adam are hosts of The Last Soul Night on Earth Friday at Humboldt Brews, joined by the usual suspects, Mantease, Jaymorg and King Maxwell, spinning vinyl to celebrate “either the end of the universe as we know it or the Mayan equivalent of Y2K.” World Famous Productions presents Mayan Apocalypse 12-21-12 Friday at the Arcata Theatre Lounge, a night of top shelf EDM featuring Portland’s Danny Corn, Comma, Grenier (aka DJ G) and Hypha. All are invited to “come celebrate the end of the world/cosmic realignment/ polar shift/fifth dimensional awakening/ time wave zero/Mayan calendar end/ peak novelty, or nothing at all — let’s rage anyway!” In Human Creation’s Holiday Bizarre III: End Game is a music/dance/comedy review Friday at the Jambalaya, “celebrat-

ing the end times.” The fundraiser for the development of the Creamery Art District and Redwood Raks features dancing by Ya Habibi, Megz Madrone, Marjhani, High Freakuency and Lex, music by Drifter Killer and Tellum and comedy by John McClurg and Don Husman (the man behind In Human Creation) along with reindeer games including an ugliest sweater contest and a raffle for cool prizes. “If this is truly the end, let’s make the most of it,” says Don. Marcia Mendels from NightHawk chose “Something to Talk About” (“What better time to break the rules?”), “Don’t Dream It’s Over” and “Never Can Say Goodbye” adding, “or maybe we should just start a worldwide OM and see if we can vibrate ourselves into the next whatever!” NightHawk is playing a benefit for the Emma Center Friday at the Arcata Playhouse titled Changing Tomorrow: A Party to Celebrate A New Start to a New Calendar of Joy and Peace, “your opportunity to change tomorrow for a lot of deserving folks while you’re having a great time rockin’ out.” Also on the bill: Nebulawn Mower. Saint John and the Sinners play at Bear River Casino Friday night. Saint’s dark jam for the end is “The End” by The Doors. Does that perhaps signal a Doors tribute in addition to the Fleetwood Mac and Cream tributes the band does now? Musicians For Community celebrate the end of the world and the winter solstice on Friday at the newly remodeled Logger Bar with a community dinner and music by Seed, The Movers and the Shakers “and more!” “‘If You’re Happy and You Know It,’ that’s my vote,” says Joe Whiskey-Whiskers Deschaine of BA-DUM-CHH Comedy. The funny folk’s Last Comedy Show Ever is at the Pearl Lounge Thursday, a day before the end, where you can “greet the Mayan prophecy with laughter.” EDM artist Wrye declares, “The world ends at midnight” on Thursday (when 1221-12 begins). He invites you to “celebrate the beginning of a new age of disco darkness” at Siren’s Song with his dark music, along with Dat-1, Onhell, Estkowski and 2012, a party that also celebrates Wrye’s new 12-inch This Is Grindhouse. Installation artist Peter Santino‘s apocalyptic takeover of the Morris Graves Museum of Art, Exhibition at the End Of Time, at the End of the World, has its official Opening at the End on Friday with conceptual ruminations on truth, beauty, art and the end. Humboldt expat Berel Alexander is back from Oakland for the holidays. He’s doing two shows with his ensemble (and Vidagua): Friday at the Garberville Theater, Saturday at the Arcata Playhouse — celebrating the solstice, not the end — but he still responded to my

question. “The last song I’d play would be Louis Armstrong’s ‘What A Wonderful World,’ then I’d play my song, ‘So Good to Be Alive,’ ‘cause I believe that the end is rather the new beginning of the world as we know it!” SoHum blues rock band Crossroads opens the Garberville show, which happens to be the same night as the town’s annual Lighted Parade (along the lines of the other ones but SoHum style). Saturday’s Playhouse show pairs Berel and co. with Kombucha Brothers, a new local combo with guitarists/songwriters Ilan Navah and Matt Starry playing “sweet folk and blues originals” backed by rhythm section Joe Hunt and Ryan Woempner. There are no visible end-of-time ties, but Humboldt’s wandering spectre Carpathian offers Winter Stories Around the Christmas Fire Friday evening at Old Town Coffee and Chocolates. He’s joined by Paul Woodland, April Parrott and Howard Emerson telling spooky ghost stories with holiday themes. Moving into the post-apocalypse, Spirit Vibrations presents its Second Annual Holiday Jam Saturday night at the Jambalaya with performances by The 51 Cards, The Plumb Uglies, Chris Parreira, Josephine Johnson, Jan Bramlett, Jenifer Breeze, Dan Seidel (from the S.F. band Kitchen Fire), Norm Crawford, Eddy Arnold Jr. and Burning Sage “and more.” Choose your holiday. There’s no party to celebrate, but Friday is roll-out day for the ambitious Humboldt Music Project 2012 double CD, a snapshot of the local scene assembled by Elle J of Humboldt Fire to support youth scholarships for HSU’s Humboldt Music Academy. The album is dedicated to the late Bryan Osper — the opening track is one of Bryan’s songs. The double CD includes dozens of local musicians in many genres including SquarPeg (playing “stranger chamber” music Saturday at Libation), Seabury Gould and Evan Morden (playing Thursday at Gallagher’s), Josephine Johnson, Berel Alexander and Vidagua (see above), UKEsperience, Bon Swing, Calleaghn Kinnamon, JD Jeffries, Joanne Rand, Mike Lee, Eric and Maia, Musaic, The Nucleus, Strix Vega, Asha Nan, SambAmore, Madi Simmons, WyldCat, Collective Elements, Magic Heart Genies, AC the Coolest, Schedule 1, Hiway, Thoughtography, Area Sound, Hella Richtor, M Shah, Chase Larue, B. Swizlo, Epik, Psy-Fi, DJ Touch, Haiku and Razle Dazle (aka Itchie, see above). The inimitable Sonny Wong did the cover (see above). Buy one online (humboldtmusicproject. Makes a great gift.

By John J. Bennett


THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY. My paperback copy of The Hobbit, circa 1989, runs to 304 pages all told. This movie (part one of three!) clocks in at an astonishing, almost unbelievably protracted 169 minutes. Right: just shy of three hours, and we don’t even get to the dragon or the giant spiders. To the Peter Jackson faithful, this criticism will likely be dismissed as pedantic and impatient, and I get that. For them, the more time basking in the computergenerated splendor of Middle Earth the better. But Jackson’s vision of Tolkien’s world didn’t draw me in the first time around, and now, with the novelty of that vision gone like Bilbo’s second breakfast, there is only the story to sustain me. To Tolkien’s credit, The Hobbit remains concise yet richly detailed, heartfelt, suspenseful and yes, a little bit magical. By blowing out the proportions of his novel as they have, Jackson and Co. have somehow reduced the saga to far less than the sum of its parts.

For the handful who don’t know, The Hobbit is a sort-of prequel to The Lord of the Rings saga. Decades before the events of that story, a young Bilbo Baggins (played here by an excellent Martin Freeman) is persuaded by gray wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) to help a bunch of dwarves steal back their gold (and their ancestral lair) from a dragon. The adventure is — no spoiler — fraught with peril and orcs and many, many beards. Along the way, Bilbo discovers his inner hero but also confronts the darker aspects of hobbit nature when he stumbles upon and steals The One Ring. It’s been decades since I read the novel, but I still have sense memories of the delicious detail and rousing action. I can only assume that Jackson had a different reaction to the book, as he seems to have found more impact in the vastness of Tolkien’s imagined world than in the authenticity and nuance of his characters, or the taut thread of plot tying everything together. In Jackson’s version, the continued on next page

action moves lazily from long, dull dialog sequences to frenetic, gigantic, almost indigestible battles and back again. Much walking takes place. The villains, though terrifically ugly and thus obviously very bad, fail to make much of an impression. The baker’s dozen of dwarves, whose story is really being told here, are nearly indistinguishable from one another. Aside from slight variations in their beard hair and appetites, they could be interchanged, scene to scene, with no one the wiser. As I mentioned above, Freeman makes as much as he can of Bilbo with an affably frustrating blend of hesitation and hard-headedness. McKellen does what you’d expect, which is generally pleasant and satisfying. But regardless of charm or talent, neither actor could ease the oppressive itch of boredom that set in at around hour two, maybe before. As in the LOTR movies, Jackson has created a vast, pretty and complex world. But he seems too pleased with his own creation, and misguidedly content to let the characters just wander around in it. The story can’t sustain the scale he envisions for it. The characters, the vital subtleties, the tension and emotion dissipate against the backdrop and all but disappear. PG13. 169m. — John J. Bennett


THIS IS 40. From writer-director Judd Apatow comes this sequel to/spinoff of Knocked Up, in which the great Paul Rudd and Apatow’s real-life wife, Leslie Mann, star as a married couple dealing with the warts-and-all nature of marriage and parenting on the cusp of middle age. R. 134m. JACK REACHER. That sniggering you hear is from fans of the Jack Reacher novels, which describe the character — a former Army major turned vigilante drifter — as a 6-foot-5-inch blonde with a 50-inch chest and lethal fighting skills. Here he’s portrayed by wee Scientologist Tom Cruise. Snigger. PG13. 130m. DJANGO UNCHAINED. Merry Christmas, lovers of cinematic badassery. The incomparable Quentin Tarantino brings his grindhouse aesthetic to this tale of slavery and revenge set in the antebellum south, starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson. R. 165m.

A LATE QUARTET. Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Walken and Catherine Keener (yowza, what a cast!) star as members of a world-renowned string quartet jockeying for position in the face of terminal illness, sexual attraction and concert-hall egos. R. 105m. LES MISÉRABLES. Merry Christmas, lovers of musicals based on French historical novels. Director Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech) brings the Broadway fixture to the silver screen with songbirding from Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe. PG13. 157m. PARENTAL GUIDANCE. Merry Christmas, lovers of Billy Crystal and Bette Midler. They star as grandparents using old-school discipline on their wacky, 21st century grandkids in this comedy from director Andy Fickman, best known for directing movies starring The Rock. PG. 104m. The Arcata Theatre Lounge is kind of like your cool friend with good taste in movies, so when it schedules one of your personal faves, it feels like a validation. Such is the case with The Truman Show (1998), director Peter Weir’s subversive and resonant comedy about a guileless man named Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey, never better) who gradually becomes aware that he was born and raised on a soundstage, surrounded by actors and hidden cameras, the unwitting star of his own 24-hour reality program. Saturday, 8 p.m. Sunday sees the arrival of The Polar Express (2004), Robert Zemeckis’ motion-capture holiday flick starring the voice of Tom Hanks in half a dozen roles. 6 p.m.


ANNA KARENINA. Leo Tolstoy’s grand novel struts awkwardly to the screen in this plodding adaptation from director Joe Wright (Atonement). Starring Keira Knightley. R. 129m. THE GUILT TRIP. Odd couple road comedy starring Seth Rogen as The Seth Rogen Character and Barbra Streisand as his embarrassing Jewish mother. PG13. 95m. LIFE OF PI. Ang Lee’s adaptation of the bestselling book by Yann Martel is a visual feast, a technological marvel and a glib homily about spirituality. PG. 127m. LINCOLN. Daniel Day-Lewis delivers a bravura performance in Steven Spielberg’s handsome and rousing biopic, which portrays the deft political wrangling of our 16th president. PG13. 149m.

MONSTERS, INC. 3D. See, there’s a prequel coming out next summer called Monsters University, so obviously you should take the kids to see the original in 3D. G. 92m. RED DAWN. Yes, they remade that Patrick Swayze movie from the ’80s. This time it’s the North Koreans invading small-town America. PG13. 114m. RISE OF THE GUARDIANS. Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and Jack Frost team up to make kids believe in them again. PG. 97m. SKYFALL. James Bond battles his Freudian demons and a swishy-sinister Javier Bardem in one of the most satisfying 007 films to date. PG13. 143m. WRECK-IT RALPH. A video game bad guy with a good heart sets out on an existential quest across the pixilated landscapes of Pac-Man, Street Fighter and the like. PG. 108m. — Ryan Burns

End of the World (Again) By Barry Evans


ook on the bright side. When the world ends again this week, there’ll be no more fiscal cliff, no more prurient tales from the CIA/FBI/Army, no more global warming, no more wars in Iraq/Afghanistan/you-name-it, no more obesity epidemic — the pluses are endless. I’m not optimistic, however. When the world ended before, the problems didn’t go away, and now my faith in end-ofthe-world predictions is a bit jaded. Take this current go-round. It’s not even as if the poor Mayans predicted the end of the world (see Field Notes, Aug. 20, 2009). What they did predict (if that’s the word for it) is that their calendar would re-up exactly 1,872,000 days after it began on August 11 (or 13), 3114 BCE in our calendar. That’s this Friday (or Sunday). Which is no more remarkable than going from Dec. 31, 1999, to Jan. 1, 2000, when not only our world didn’t end (unless I’m really living in a fantasy), but computers kept running and traffic lights stayed working, despite predictions to the contrary. The last time the world really ended, without too much exaggeration, was that fateful day 65 million years ago when a Manhattan-Island-sized rock came roaring through our atmosphere with the kinetic energy of a billion Hiroshima-size bombs. Atmospheric dust from the impact quickly blanketed Earth’s surface, essentially shutting down photosynthesis for several years and causing the extinction of about half of Earth’s species, including just about all the dinosaurs except the ancestors of birds. That singular event had a happy ending for mammals, who suddenly found themselves lords of the land, filling the ecological “niches” in which dinosaurs previously thrived. If the space-rock had missed, no World Series, no latte, no Twitter. Just boring old T-Rex and his bros in the ’hood.

The world will end, of course — nothing lasts forever — but the finale will probably be a drawn-out affair, T.S. Eliot’s “not with a bang, but a whimper.” In the long-term, when our star runs out of nuclear fuel some 5 billion years from now, this planet will be incinerated in the sun’s last-gasp hurrah. But, self-centered and chauvinistic as we are, we may want to focus on the end of our species, rather than on all Earthly life. We humans are pretty vulnerable to all manner of plagues, metaphorical and literal. For instance: The flu pandemic of 1919 wiped out about 40 million people, twice as many as the combatants had been able to kill off during the previous four years of WWI. One gnarly mutation of swine-flu, say, could do a similar number on us today. With nine countries (some of which aren’t exactly models of stability) possessing nuclear weapons, we could rather easily create a doomsday of our own making. When super-intelligent computers move from science-fiction to reality (no more than a few decades from now — some computer viruses already have “cockroach intelligence”), the game will really change. The new lords of the Earth may well see us an inferior, non-essential species, John Connor notwithstanding. I’ve already submitted my Dec. 27 column, so I guess I don’t think the world is going to end before the next issue of the Journal. Give us a few more generations, however, and I’m not so sanguine: Time really is running out for our kind. Maybe we should take another look at those Mayan stelae … l Barry Evans ( will be celebrating the winter solstice at 3:12 a.m. PST on Dec. 21, end of the world or not.

ASSESSOR’S PARCEL NO. 004-086-007-000. 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 of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 707-4430837 for information regarding the trustee’s sale and inquire as to the status of the foreclosure using the T.S. number assigned to this foreclosure shown on the first page of this notice. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The unpaid balance and estimate of costs, expenses and advances as of November 20, 2012 is $67,551.62; said amount will increase until date of sale. The street address or other common designation, if any, of the real property described herein is purported to be: 325 W.
