That Rooster Never Bothered Me Editor: After reading your article on “Something to Crow About” (Dec. 21, 2017), I felt the need to comment. I have lived in this unincorporated area of Humboldt County for over 30 years. Art Rush, the gentleman you interviewed for your article, has been a neighbor of mine for many of those years. Our neighborhood has bears, deer and raccoons, and many other families here have chickens and roosters. The only time I hear the roosters crowing is when I am outside in my yard. Giant Foghorn Leghorn’s voice is deep and soft, not as loud as the other roosters around here with their higher pitched, louder voices. I find it interesting that no one in this entire neighborhood has ever complained about the rooster’s crowing. I did sign Art’s petition stating that his rooster does not bother me. When looking at his petition, I noticed that not one person said they were bothered by his rooster. None of the roosters around here bother me. What does bother me is someone moving into the neighborhood and then starting to complain about something that has never been a problem for years. Perhaps moving into the city of Eureka might better suit that person. C. Jackson, Eureka

Knocking on Wood for Single Payer Editor: I identify as part of the “small” very vocal group Dr. Jim Wood refers to in “Set-

ting the Record Straight,” (Dec. 28, 2017). Whenever people say that there are insurmountable obstacles to getting something done, it usually means they do not want to do it, not that it can’t be done. If Dr. Wood truly believes in a single payer system, as he states he does, he needs to do something to move Senate Bill 562 along. There is some work to be done. S.B. 562 is a vehicle through which an improved healthcare system can be achieved. If you think this will be easy, consider the history of the Canadian single payer system. It was not a slam dunk by any means in Saskatchewan, where universal coverage started. Yet, today, Canada has a healthcare system that is far superior to ours and providers are generally satisfied. If you want to know more about the California Healthcare Foundation, which Dr. Wood refers to and quotes, I urge you to research the board of directors listed on its website board-of-directors. “Is the public ready to pay for this system through another payroll tax?” Wood asks. A payroll tax is easier to navigate than a monthly premium charge. Costs could be controlled much more easily through a single payer system. Realistic funding models have been proposed, and S.B. 562 is a blueprint for something that could actually happen if there were the will to make it happen. Finally, I think attacking one’s constituents is not a good idea. Maybe Dr. Wood perceives a “small” group — and yes, there are only a few vocal members of the group — but each vocal member has an army behind them. Dr. Wood, represent your constituents! Carol Moné, Trinidad

Editor: Dear Mr. Wood, there are several things in you recent op-ed that bother us single payer supporters. The most salient for me was your assessment of the state of Medicare and the administrative cost thereof (which, by the way, is only 3 percent as compared to the 15 percent you tout as the prowess of private insurance). You slyly blow that corporate dog-whistle, “Are we sure a government program can be as efficient (as one of our private insurers)?” That is so Trumpian — sow doubt, revive “government takeover” and scare people into accepting less than what the rest of industrialized democracies enjoy. You also bring up the waiver challenge. We understand perfectly that as long as we have Trump, that will not be easy. That’s what lawyers are for. It is not a reason to just give up and cobble together a half-baked, private insurance-dominated plan that cannot be controlled or overseen, where prices will rise and the poor will be priced out. I would prefer to keep trying, even if it takes three more years, rather than settle for that. And given your remark about administrative cost, I am becoming more convinced that is exactly where you are heading. We are not naïve. We do not “promise everything.” What we intend is a program no less than Canada, Mexico and the European and Australian continents use. We know they are not perfect, only that they are (at least) twice as good as our own. We have seen the behavior of corporate insurance and Big Pharma, like an octopus strangling the life out of our nation, and we want it to stop. They must be eliminated or strictly controlled. Don’t tell us to settle for less. Patty Harvey, Willow Creek

Honor and Praise Native People Editor: There is a tremendous amount of sick sniveling going on here in Liberal Country. The column by Tony Platt (“Trinidad, Do the Right Thing,” Jan. 4) goes on with the “same thing,” deriding local history. Get over it. Humboldt has gone the way all America did, by belittling native people and culture. Whites thought they were demeaning native culture, and put it down at every turn. Looking back at local treatment of native folks shows a sorry legacy. Much more important, however, is the awakening of locals to the depth and value of native people. I personally moved here in a tipi and have more native gifts and artifacts than any white guy in our county. Instead of making a living dredging

up the past, like Tony does, I think locals would do well to join others in praising the entire native community here. Land, homes, casinos, holidays, tribal awareness, college courses, all point to the way locals are seeking a new way, a way that praises and glorifies the native people. Humboldt leads the way, nationally, by glorifying native culture, and putting it up at every turn. It is held high and praised whenever spoken of locally. The number of tribes and the ways that they are on native land and held high, is fantastic. I say put the Tonys of this world at arms length, and notice the praise and honor given to tribes here. Quite simply, we lead the nation in this, and must extend and honor our lengthy praise of the native people. Joshua Kinch, Eureka

Sometimes I long for the sun, to graze my long pale neck, to make me warm and whole again. But I remember, the sharp black mountains of coal piled up beached whales, The menacing albatross, sauntering in the shadows, waiting for the newborn sea turtles, to first bare their face to mother earth, Only to swallow them whole.

Physicians for Single Payer By Corinne Frugoni and Wendy Ring


ur current profit-driven health care system is closing physician practices and burning out doctors. The average American physician spends nearly nine hours a week wrangling with insurance companies and the average medical practice spends $72,000 per doctor per year just dealing with insurers. That’s why a majority of Humboldt physicians support a single payer health program. In a recent guest opinion (“Setting the Record Straight,” Dec. 28, 2017), North Coast state Assemblymember Jim Wood explained his rationale for stalling Senate Bill 562, The Healthy California Act. Looks like Wood is going against medical advice. The Healthy California Act is the first step toward solving Humboldt’s health care ills. It would eliminate our crazy quilt of public programs and private for-profit insurance in favor of a single public agency funding health care for all Californians. Under this plan, hospitals and medical offices would remain as they are. All that would change is who pays the bills. Wood says he supports universal coverage but “we just need to take the time to find the right path.” These days, when the average patient with private insurance pays a $4,000 deductible before insurance pays anything, having coverage is no guarantee for health care. California State Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones thinks single payer is the right path. We don’t need to waste more time looking for another. Wood claims that a transition to a single payer plan would be too complicated. In reality eliminating multiple payers and profit would simplify the system. Under S.B. 562, doctors would no longer be micromanaged by private insurance or burdened by costly paperwork. Patients would be free to choose any doctor or hospital without worrying about who is in or out of network because there would be no networks. We could change jobs or locations, get married or divorced without worrying about health coverage. We’d sim-

ply present a health ID card and get health care. Medical bills, premiums, deductibles, co-pays and collection agencies would all become obsolete. Deferring medical treatment because of cost would become a thing of the past. No one would have to gamble on affordability or benefit packages because everyone would be equally covered with comprehensive, high quality benefits. The Healthy California Act is radical in its simplicity. It would return the wasted health care dollars and talents of skilled professionals to their original intended purpose: patient care, public health and medical research. Let’s look to history. In July of 1965, President Lyndon Johnson signed Medicare, a government funded insurance program into law. By 1966, Medicare coverage for all Americans 65 and older took effect. Was it all that complicated? Wood says we can’t afford a single payer system. A single payer program dedicated to the public’s health instead of corporate profits would cost us less and give us more. A streamlined payment system would dramatically lower administrative costs. The layers of insurance bureaucracy and reams of insurance bills would be eliminated. A single buyer, negotiating on behalf of all of us, would have tremendous bargaining power to lower the price of drugs and medical equipment. Seventy percent of the California health budget is already being paid for with our taxes. A recent analysis by the nonpartisan Political Research Institute found that a California single payer system could be a funded by eliminating premiums and substituting an additional modest sales tax on non-essential items plus gross receipts taxes for businesses making over $2 million. This would create savings for households, businesses and the state. Wood says that single payer advocates are a small vocal group implying that their views aren’t shared by most of his constitContinued on page 8 »

uents. Surveys show that the majority of Californians support single payer health care. S.B. 562 has been endorsed by the cities of Eureka, Arcata, Manila, Albany, Berkeley, El Cerrito, Emeryville, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, Oakland, San Francisco and Richmond, and by the counties of Marin, Santa Clara and San Francisco. It is supported by the California Nurses Association, the California Teachers Association and many other health, education and labor organizations. A single payer system won’t solve all our problems. But it is far better than the patchwork system we have now with private health insurance companies that look at health care as a commodity geared toward making a profit for shareholders. With single payer, all California residents and politicians, from people who are unemployed, to working families and all the way up to the governor would have the same health coverage and interest in maintaining a high quality, well-functioning health system. S.B. 562 has been endorsed by the California Democratic Party but powerful interests want the bill kept off the floor of the Legislature until it shrivels and dies. Wood and the Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon say the bill lacks details. Solutions can’t be worked out as long as the bill is held hostage in the Rules Committee while the select committee that Wood chairs obfuscates. Meanwhile our health system here in Humboldt is crumbling, premiums are up 33 percent and the new tax bill will lead to large cuts in Medi-Cal and Medicare, on which many local residents depend. As our representative, Jim Wood should be responding to the needs of his constituents by championing the Healthy California Act, S.B. 562. We need actions, not more studies. We don’t have any time to lose. l Corinne Frugoni is a family physician and a member of Physicians for a National Health Program and Health Care for All, organizations devoted to single payer education and advocacy.

Why a new trial won’t change the outcome of the Borges wrongful death lawsuit By Robert Poyourow

I Elevated American fare & craft cocktails

read Thadeus Greenson’s Dec. 2 posting on the Borges defendants’ motions for judgment and/or a new trial (“County Swaps Attorneys, Challenges $2.5 Million Wrongful Death Verdict”). I waited until the plaintiff’s formal replies were filed with the court and can now comment on these new developments. I am Daren Borges’ stepfather and attended the entire trial that resulted in the verdicts against the county and three of its officers. I was surprised, but not really surprised, at the defendants’ complaining about the verdict. As expected, the officers refuse to accept responsibility for the conduct that contributed to Daren’s death. Permit me to give your readers a few examples of the evidence that came out at the trial: The officers’ deliberate disregard of written jail policies cut off Daren’s right to immediate medical attention. The point of the jail’s policies was to make sure each officer’s judgment was properly informed. Defendants’ own corrections expert repeatedly reminded the jury how important the correctional procedures were, and that the policies must be followed, especially after the Martin Cotton case. But no one treated the written policies as binding. Officer Terri Bittner, both as a senior officer and as an officer responsible for training others, repeatedly said that the policies were just “guidelines” and that she was free to ignore them and follow her judgment instead. This, then, was the policy: Jail policies are not binding. Thus, they were not policies at all. They were window dressing. Do the defendants really want to re-try this case so that Officer Bittner can testify again, offering the same rejected excuses for why she willfully ignored the policies and then tried to justify the awful behavior recorded in videos by blaming others? The videos made the case and they will not go away. One hundred minutes

of videos depicted Daren flailing about in acute distress and writhing on the floor. The jury was aghast. When asked whether he saw Daren in distress, veteran officer Tim Hammer, also responsible for setting a standard for younger officers, said, “No, I thought he was having fun.” More gasps rolled through the courtroom. The jury was right to hold Hammer responsible for such callousness, such disregard and such deliberate indifference to what was so obvious to all. The Cotton case came up in the Borges trial because the facts were similar. The evidence showed what the county knew and yet didn’t want to know. (Readers will recall that the county settled rather than go to trial over its violations of Cotton’s rights. Eureka, meanwhile, refused to settle, leading to a $4.5 million jury verdict at trial.) According to the defendants’ witnesses in the Borges case, the county didn’t conduct a meaningful review after Cotton’s death. Daren’s case was very similar, and that’s why the Cotton case came up — because the county deliberately didn’t want to know. According to the defendants’ witnesses, the reason no review was conducted by any supervisor was to protect the employment “rights” of the officers whose conduct should have been reviewed. If that doesn’t make the case against the county, then what should? Last, Daren was schizophrenic. He used methamphetamine and alcohol to self-medicate, as schizophrenics sometimes do. Correctional officers know this and they knew Daren was schizophrenic. The new attorneys know this. The testimony showed that Daren was told that, when in distress, he should turn himself in to the authorities, and he did; and he cooperated. That testimony, and Daren’s cooperation, were never challenged at trial. Corrections officers are responsible to the public, and that responsibility extends to those in distress, even distress at their

own hand. The defendants should have sent Daren immediately to the hospital, where even their expert conceded that 99 percent of those suffering a meth overdose are saved — testimony that produced more gasps in the courtroom. Prompt medical attention saves those with even more meth in their systems than Daren had. The facts proven at trial will not go away. Should the defendants get a new trial, they will have to explain the unexplainable all over again. But it won’t come to that. We need only look to the judge’s written order when she turned down the first post-trial motion: “... the failure of the defendant officers to testify in an honest and forthright manner entitled the jury to discount the defendant officers’ version of the facts entirely.” Understandably, these officers want to be treated as trained professionals. Here, they would prefer that they have as little responsibility as possible. The jury heard it all. Obviously, the jury didn’t like that attitude. The defendants deserved the verdict the jury delivered. For now, all these new defendants’ motions will do is increase the attorneys’ fees on both sides. However, the public should appreciate that the defendants’ new attorneys must charge for their time in coming up to speed on years of litigation. Worse for the county, losing defendants in Constitutional rights cases like this one are responsible for paying not only their attorneys’ fees but those of the plaintiff as well. l Robert Poyourow, Daren Borges’ stepfather, is a retired attorney.

Trump Admin Releases Draft Plan to Open North Coast Waters to Oil Drilling


he Trump administration announced on Jan. 4 sweeping plans to increase offshore oil drilling around the country, including in Northern California. U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke released the draft five-year plan, which would potentially see a combined 47 site leases auctioned off in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic Region, Pacific Region and off the coast of Alaska from 2019 through 2024. The plan represents a marked escalation of the executive order Donald Trump signed back in May that aimed to expand offshore drilling in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans. It has been cheered by the oil and gas industry but is already facing fierce opposition from a bipartisan group of lawmakers and conservation groups. North Coast Congressman Jared Huffman struck a defiant tone in a statement. “Secretary Zinke’s announcement today confirms that the Trump administration is hell-bent on trampling the public interest and further lining the pockets of Big Oil at the expense of clean air, clean water, and the health of the American people,” Huffman said. “Californians will never let

this happen. Our state has shown that we can have a growing economy along with environmental protections, and we have made it very clear, again and again, that we do not want to put our fisheries, our beaches, or our coastal economies at risk just to enrich the fossil fuel industry. The bottom line is that offshore drilling means oil spills, and the risk is even higher now that the Trump administration is weakening offshore safety rules. This reckless proposal for a new offshore drilling spree should face widespread, bipartisan opposition. We’ll fight them in Congress, on the beaches, in the courts, and at the ballot box. I’m confident we’ll defeat this dangerous plan.” Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle in Maryland, South Carolina, North Carolina, Delaware, New Jersey and Florida have also spoken out on the proposed plan, which will now go through a months-long public review process. In a Jan. 4 press conference, Zinke said the draft plan is a clear departure from the Obama administration’s protectionist approach to the nation’s coastlines. “We’re embarking on a new path for energy dominance in America, particularly offshore,”

Stabbing in Orick: An alleged gang member, Ronald Joshua Loureiro, 29, is in jail after allegedly fatally stabbing 34-year-old Vernon James Weatherford on the morning of Jan. 5 in Orick.

Zinke said. “This is a clear difference between energy weakness and energy dominance. We are going to become the strongest energy superpower.” The draft plan, which calls for auctioning off a total of six drilling leases along the coast of California, seems destined to be unpopular in the Golden State. A Public Policy Institute of California poll released in July found that just 25 percent of Californians were in favor of more

Week in Weed

A Zealot’s Stand By Thadeus Greenson

alifornia had its mellow harshed a bit last week when, just days after cannabis became legal for recreational users, U.S. Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions announced he was rescinding Obama-era Department of Justice protections against federal prosecutions of people operating lawfully under state medical marijuana laws. The news — coupled with the abrupt resignation of the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California Brian Stretch, leaving a vacancy that will now be filled by the Trump Administration — sent some shockwaves through the Emerald Triangle. Think about it: If you just put your name on a whole bunch of state and county lists openly admitting to conspiring to violate the federal Controlled Substances Act, you’d probably feel pretty squirrely, too. It’s hard to know what exactly to make of this move from Sessions. It’s hardly surprising, given his hardline approach to crime in general and marijuana in particular. After all, this is a guy who has said in the last couple of years that “good people don’t smoke marijuana” and that cannabis is only “slightly less awful” than heroin. The man has not been shy about expressing his views and, since taking office, has even openly lobbied Congress to roll back restrictions requiring that the Justice Department not spend federal funds chasing after people operating in compliance with local marijuana laws.

But Sessions’ endgame here is unclear. If he wants to go full scorched earth, he could theoretically go after government officials in California and elsewhere who have worked to license, promote and regulate cannabis businesses under the argument that hey are facilitating violations of federal law. But that would be lunacy, a declaration of war from the self-described federalist on the eight states — including some red ones — that have legalized recreational weed. It would leave career bureaucrats of all political orientations facing criminal charges for simply doing their jobs. On the other end of the spectrum, this could all be much ado about nothing, simply an ideological play that soothes Sessions’ Reefer Madness propensities but does little to change the operations of the Department of Justice. A middle ground seems more likely, though. There are clearly still lots and lots of marijuana growers and dealers who have taken no steps toward legitimacy, who still operate under the cloak of prohibition, pillage the environment with little regard and ship their harvests over state lines to lucrative markets with harsher pot laws. If Sessions is serious about public safety and protecting children from the devil weed, these are the folks he should go after. Clearly. And while few here on the North Coast might say it out loud, a little federal intervention cracking down on those refusing to get on board with

regulation and legalization would do a lot to bolster legal markets. It would cut down overproduction of cannabis in the Golden State, driving up prices and pushing people toward regulated, legal markets. Ultimately, this would be good for those who have poured money and effort into getting legit. But building those types of federal cases is grinding, labor intensive work, often requiring surveillance, informants and large eradication teams. There’s a reason many in law enforcement have long felt they were pissing on a bonfire trying to arrest and eradicate marijuana out of the mainstream. Unfortunately, there’s another option. Sessions could instruct his U.S. Attorneys in states with permissive cannabis laws to pick a few examples and prosecute the hell out of them. Not only would this likely mean some good people going to prison, it would also kneecap legal markets. The ensuing panic would disrupt legal markets and regulatory frameworks, sending scores of growers, producers and distributors scurrying back to the hills. In the long run, it would mean more illicit grows, more dewatered streams, more guns, more violence and more contaminated products making it to consumers. By every measure, this would be disastrous public policy. And most Americans agree, with 64 percent now supporting federal legalization, including a majority — 51 percent — of Republicans, according to a recent Gallup poll. But it unfortunately doesn’t matter much what we think. It only matters what a certain Drug War zealot from Alabama thinks. And he somehow believes that the estimated 35 million Americans who regularly use marijuana are bad people and that a drug responsible for zero recorded overdose fatalities last year is “only slightly less awful” than one that caused tens of thousands. And if you’re someone whose name is on a permit or in a state database, that has to be terrifying. l Thadeus Greenson is the Journal’s news editor.

With those disclosures, one thing has become very clear: The couple’s expenses — including $30,000 worth of mortgage payments — are barely covered each month despite the $70,000 117 Fifth St., Eureka in combined rent their 34 properties Type: Duplex or Multi-unit Building bring in. 0 Living Units Assessed Value: $159,405 And that’s just counting the basics Monthly Rental Income: None reported like insurance and utilities, not even delving into the couple’s outstanding bills that include $1.4 million in dilinquent property taxes and a couple hundred thousand dollars the Squireses have been ordered to pay in various court awards. Those numbers are just some of the many concerns U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge William Lafferty has expressed about the Squireses’ case, saying he’s “got a number of fundamental questions about how Chapter 11 is going to work here.” The looming fight seems to 1429 Sunny Ave., Eureka be whether the Squires’ can restructure Type: Single Family Home INCOME their debt while retaining ownership of 2 Living Units 4TH STREET 5TH STREET UNION A STREET TAX those almost three dozen properties Assessed Value: $115,747 or whether the judge will order them Monthly Rental Income: $1,675 liquidated to pay off the couples’ growing debt.

a roundabout catalyst for the bankruptcy case — over conditions at more than two dozen of their properties within city limits. That case started back in January of 2011, when the city attempted to wrest control of 26 properties away from the Squireses, arguing that pervasive code violations rendered the them a threat to public safety. After countless legal rounds, Superior Court Judge Dale

Reinholtsen eventually appointed what’s known as a “receiver” in 2013 to oversee needed repairs, which remain ongoing six years later. Lafferty told attorneys he has chatted with Reinholtsen, while expressing some trepidation about the potential for clashes between the cases. “Maybe we can do it with two courts,” Continued on next page » • Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018 • NORTH COAST JOURNAL

Monthly Rental Income: $1,950 So where does the case go from here? Attorney Ron Oliner, a bankruptcy and receivership expert who is a partner with the prominent Bay Area firm Duane Morris LLP, says there’s a chance the judge will move the Squireses over to Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceedings and order their properties sold to pay off the debts. That, he says, is what ends up happening in most Chapter 11 cases — which are designed to allow a bankruptcy filer to keep their assets by restructuring debt, a process often highly dependent on the amount of equity present. “They have both feet TYPE: SINGLE FAM in bankruptcy right now ILY HOME, W AREHOUSE and Judge Lafferty, in my experience and opinion, is 3 LIVING UNITS not going to let them out ASSESSED VALUE: $203,532 of bankruptcy with a quick MONTHLY RENTAL dismissal,” he says.

of the properties will likely need to go, especially since the top secured creditor in the case — owed $158,000 — is not interested in taking payments of $1,500 a month until he is paid off. That creditor is Mark Adams, who briefly served as the receiver and was unsuccessfully sued by the Squireses. In February, Reinholtsen awarded Adams the $158,000 — a mixture of legal costs, fees and compensation for about four weeks of receiver work — then authorized him to secure the money by using 26 of the couple’s properties as collateral. When the Squireses didn’t pay up, Adams moved to auction off those 26 properties to collect the debt. Soon after, the bankruptcy case was filed, halting the sale. Chandler told the court that his role is to “come up with a resolution so that we can all go off into the sunset,” saying he believes the best path lies in selling off a couple of the more problematic properties to pay Adams and other priority debts, while fixing up the remaining buildings. What all this means for the hundreds of people who rent from the couple is not exactly clear but Chandler alluded to the Squireses’ oft-used claim that their tenants cause most of the problems despite the couple’s best efforts to maintain their many properties. “These properties are not going to become a Sheraton or be a five-star resort,” Chandler said. “They’re always probably going to be low-income housing and they come with problems for the city as well as the owners, and we’ve got to get our arms around those problems.” Lafferty was circumspect about the attorney’s response, noting he found the disparity between the properties’ estimated worth and the dilapidated conditions that exist at most of them “mystifying.” “Either they’re worth $15 million and do something with them or they’re not and we’re in a much more distressed situation,” Lafferty replied. Meanwhile, Oliner said he believes things are about to start moving quickly, including the submission of a debt reorganization plan that will lay the groundwork for how the case proceeds. “It’s going to get hot in the kitchen pretty soon,” Oliner said. ● Kimberly Wear is the assistant editor at the Journal.

Persimmon brightens up braised pork belly.

The Joy of Persimmons With savory pork and a sweet cake roll Story and photos by Wendy Chan

$ McKINLEYVILLE 839-8763

n China, when my grandpa would come back from the market, he’d bring a little brown cloth filled with dried Hachiya persimmons — sweet and chewy, they were our special treat. In Northern California, we have plenty of persimmons from late fall through winter. Fuyu and Hachiya are the most common — the former is firm and crisp, the latter are only ripe when they’re soft and gelatinous. I like to eat them as they are and I love to cook with them, since they add a refreshing flavor to savory and sweet dishes. Here are my two favorite persimmon dishes.

Braised Pork Belly with Persimmons Fuyu harmonizes with the taste of the pork and gives this dish a beautiful color.

Ingredients: 2 pounds pork belly, skin on, cut into cubes 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1 tablespoon sugar, preferably Chinese rock sugar 6 slices ginger 3 cloves garlic 2 red chili peppers 2 whole star anises 2 tablespoons sake 2 tablespoons soy sauce 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce Salt to taste 3-4 cups warm water 3 Fuyu persimmons, diced Green onions, chopped, for garnish Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add the cubed meat and blanch it for 5 minutes, rinse and drain. Heat the oil in a large pan on high and add the ginger, garlic, star anise and chili.

Stir fry until aromatic, about 3 minutes. Add the blanched pork belly and sautée until golden brown Add the sugar, sake, both soy sauces, ⅓ of the persimmons and enough water to just cover the meat. Cook on high heat for 10 minutes, then simmer for 45 minutes until tender, stirring at least twice. Toss in the remaining persimmons and add salt to taste. Stir well for 2 minutes and remove from heat. Garnish with green onion, serve with rice.

Soft Cake Roll with Persimmon The bright fruit makes this cake a pretty choice for a celebration. Ingredients: 4 eggs at room temperature ¼ cup sugar, divided ¼ cup vegetable oil ¼ cup milk or water ⅓ cup cake flour, sifted 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 ripe Fuyu persimmon, finely chopped 1 cup whipped cream, sweetened to taste. In a clean, dry bowl, beat the egg whites with lemon juice until they start to foam. Add 2 tablespoons of sugar and beat for 1 minute, then add 3 more tablespoons of sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Set aside. In another bowl, use a spatula to beat egg yolks with the remaining sugar. Add the oil and milk, and mix well. Fold in the flour in 3 parts, being careful not to over mix. Gently fold in ⅓ of the egg white mixture until combined. Then pour the mixture into the bowl of remaining egg whites, folding it in evenly. Heat the oven to 350 F. Line a 9-by-13inch baking pan with parchment paper and pour the batter onto it. Smooth the surface with a spatula and firmly tap the baking pan against the counter a few times to release any air bubbles. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until the cake springs back when touched. Remove the pan from the oven and slide the cake out with the parchment paper. Let it cool for 5 minutes. With a clean sheet of parchment paper, cover the top of the cake and carefully flip it upside down onto a work surface. Once it’s completely cool, spread the sweetened whipped cream across the cake and sprinkle on the chopped persimmons. Facing the 9-inch side, gently roll the cake away from you to form a log, taking care not to break it. Wrap the cake in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour before slicing and serving. l

Megafauna Goes Big

rmored glyptodontids and giant sloths feature in Arcata’s newest work of public art — and no, that’s not a metaphor. Pleistocene megafauna have returned to G Street in life-size reproduction and the city’s newest mural, generously scaled as it is at 12 by 39 feet, can barely contain them. “Pleistocene Era Megafauna of the Pacific Northwest,” which takes up one side of Humboldt State University’s Natural History Museum’s (1242 G St.) new classroom trailer, was completed last month after three months of work. Art education professor James Woglum, who coordinated 36 HSU art education students in the painting effort, pointed out that the megafauna may actually be making their first appearance here, geographically speaking, since the place we now call Arcata was underwater during the Pleistocene. The mural bears no explanatory text (there are plans to add some in future), so identification of the 11 species shown currently poses armchair taxonomists with a challenge. I was able to identify giant sloth, giant beaver, short-faced bear and wooly mammoth, among others. All are rendered in a vigorous, enthusiastic style. Minor expressionist exaggerations communicate a gee-whiz sense of wonder that suits the theme. During the Pleistocene era, which lasted from about 2,588,000 to 11,700 years ago, enormous furry mammals held sway while portions of whole continents were locked in glacial ice. Large mammals existed in dizzying abundance and variety; 14 species of pronghorn antelope roamed North America, for example, of which only one remains, and similar diversification existed within other mammal species. Armadillos the size of city buses roamed the steppes. Condors with 15-foot wingspans soared overhead. Like creatures from dreams


or nightmares, these megafauna species were not only bigger than their latter-day counterparts, but stranger. When Melinda Bailey of the HSU Natural History Museum contacted Woglum to discuss the possibility of a mural, she specified the theme. The museum wanted an interpretive exhibit that could start conversations about natural history and the past. Woglum said that he and his art education students welcomed an opportunity to work in an educational context at this scale. “The students learn a lot because it’s a boots-on-the-ground experience — they’re actually mixing the paint, gridding out the design. In the art education classes,” he added, “we have been looking to get more involved in public art and getting students to realize that they can be ambitious with art in institutional settings.” Woglum, who graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in art education, writes that his own practice exists at “the intersection between service learning and socially engaged art.” Once he received the mural’s brief, he determined the composition in collaboration with the 36 students enrolled in two of his art education classes. “Once we located source material, the students mocked up hypothetical compositions. Then we worked as a team to combine the best features of those compositions into a single image,” he explained. “We worked from a hyper-realistic illustration but we ended up with a more individualistic or expressionist rendering.” In the next stage of the process, the collaborators used chalk and painters’ tape to “grid out” the wall in 2-foot squares, so that preparatory drawings could be scaled up with minimal distortion. The mural was mostly executed in acrylic, although shortfalls forced the collaborators to switch to exterior house paint in the project’s latest phases. The

switch-up presented a technical challenge and painters had to adjust their approach to accommodate the commercial paint’s more rapid drying time. “That was an educational experience,” Woglum said. “The house paint was definitely a little bit less pliable. It dries fairly quickly and has a tackiness to it, and it doesn’t mix great.” Nevertheless, in the completed mural the two media blend well enough that differentiation between the two can scarcely be discerned. I asked Woglum about the division of labor. Was each collaborator assigned a specific wall space, or was the process more fluid? “There was a lot of negotiation,” he said with a laugh. “Different people gravitated to work on different animals.” The artist responsible for the impressively dense and truculent-looking giant bison and the one who worked on the intricately patterned scales of the giant pangolin next door are manifestly not the same, and part of the fun of looking at this collaborative effort is noticing moments of transition where one artist’s draftsmanship abuts the next. While Woglum coordinated the painting effort, he credits the HSU art education students who worked alongside him to complete the mural: Kathleen Aguilar, Angelica Armijo-Keats, Lucas Arnese, Danielle Baca, Alanna Ballor, Alyssa Boscacci, Cecily Chavira, Christina Cordova, Madelyn Damiano, Baili Farris, Tania Fonseca, Jhsiri Emerson-Massey, Samantha Fabian, Mia Gonzales, Elizabeth Gordon, Christina Guerra, Brandon Jones, Brandy Jones, Curtis Kane, Priscilla La Salle, Taylor Macias, Anne McGuire, Molly McKaig, Lacy Melendez, Jessica Mendiola, Jacky Montalvo, Dante Nichelini, Clara Nieblas, Alexa Pante, Alyssa Romero, Maya Strauss, Scott Townsend, Elizabeth Truong and Deven Walton. l

Go On Without Me By Collin Yeo


went out a few times this last week, and I am paying for it now. From Blue Lake to Eureka, I trekked about for social and musical engagements, and now I am a wreck. I trusted you, Humboldt, and you have rewarded my childlike faith in your essential goodness by giving me your germs. Specifically, the ones that cause me to wheeze and cough like a rusty kettle. Or a man with a hot water bottle full of Vasoline where his lungs used to be. Metaphors, similes, I don’t know: I am spitballing here, which sounds like a game I could probably invent in my bedroom as I clack away on my laptop while wrapped in half of my wardrobe. I hate getting sick and I turn it into a big extravagant bitch-fest because I do what so many of my male peers do when faced with the slightest health obstacle: I get “man-sick,” which is basically a big exercise in performative whining. I will spare you any more of that nonsense, dear readers, and instead spread it amongst my friend and family. To you I wish a good and fun and healthy week, you lucky ducklings. And to those of you who are afflicted like myself, quarantine yourselves! Do not be patient zero for someone else’s snot-filled tragedy. Be a hero: Stay in your sick bed, under the weather/under the radar. Be seeing you.


Kris Kristofferson needs no introduction at this point. His songs, usually covered by more famous artists like Janis Joplin or Johnny Cash, have been a staple of rock and country radio for nearly half a century. Still, if you are one of the lucky ones who bought tickets for tonight’s show at the Van Duzer theater at 7 p.m., you are likely in for a treat, because even now in his early 80s, he has maintained a reputation as a wry and enjoyable performer ($66). Fun fact: When I was a teenager coming up with names for a short-lived punk rock band, one of my favorites was Pissed Pissedofferson. Speaking of punk rock, the Siren’s Song has an all-ages show tonight at 8 p.m. with a different type of legendary act. Since its inception in early 1986 in Scarborough, England, Active Minds has been putting out DIY punk records and touring with a sound that is very political and consistently intelligently angry. Thirty-two years have not dulled them, so expect a good show, with Bay Area fastcore band Violent Op-

position opening with local acts FamousxPerson, Drown in Piss and Dead Drift also providing support ($7).


Abbie Gardner is a woman of many talents. As one third of the all-female folk trio Red Molly (named after a character in Richard Thompson’s magnificent song “1952 Vincent Black Lightning”), she pulls off vocal duties while deftly picking out melodies on her dobro and is known for her acoustic guitar and lap steel work as well. She is a truly gifted player with a clear and beautiful voice and when she takes the stage at the Arcata Playhouse tonight at 8 p.m., expect a set of folk and country songs done just right ($15). Meanwhile, over in Blue Lake, The Logger Bar hosts Nevada City’s own honky tonk queen Angelica Rockne and her five piece band of country gentlemen at 10 p.m. This show is about as close as you can get to one of those diamond-in-therough, rose-in-the-compost roadhouse evenings from yesteryear and below the Mason-Dixon line without having to leave our beautiful county, get pie eyed on Billy Beer and pick your teeth out of the chicken wire fence protecting the stage from errant bottles. Blue Lake’s own bluegrass picker and guitar master Turtle Goodwater opens. Free.

Saturday Drum ’n ’ bass is making a sort of comeback in the local DJ scene and I couldn’t be happier. I prefer my electronic dance music to be low-concept and deep, pounding into my skull until all the connections are frayed and the only impulse left is the override switch designed to make your ass shake.

Holiday for a King

Steel Yourself

“The time is always right to do the right thing.” — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Monday, Jan. 15 is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the national holiday to celebrate the life and legacy of the minister and civil rights leader. Locally, there are two prominent celebrations happening to commemorate his birthday, honor his vision and inspire people to carry his message of harmony and equality out into the world. The first is the Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration from noon to 2 p.m. at the Adorni Recreation Center (free). The Eureka Branch of the NAACP hosts this event featuring musical performances, master storyteller Baba Jamal Koram and featured speaker Michelle Charmaine Lawson, mother of slain Humboldt State University student David Josiah Lawson. This year’s theme is “Together We Rise Up.” Next up is the annual Bowl of Beans Benefit from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Arcata Community Center ($6), where you can join in celebrating the life and work of Dr. King with a hearty beans and rice dinner, another performance by storyteller Baba Jamal Koram, music from the Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir and AIGC Youth Choir, Asha Nan and youth from Arcata Elementary School. The event is also a benefit for Arcata Recreation’s Youth Development Scholarship Fund for the Arts and Arcata Elementary. As Dr. King eloquently reminds us, “Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better.” See you there. — Kali Cozyris

About a Boy By John J. Bennett


THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER. On the heels of my uncharacteristically optimistic (surprised myself with that one!) survey of the cinema of 2017 last week (“The Best of 2017,” Jan. 4), I can’t quite decide if I’m glad I hadn’t seen this yet. On one hand, it is certainly one of the most self-assured, fully realized movies of last year; on the other, it’s a bleak, desolate, disheartening parable, the true themes of which might require a classroom discussion to really parse. Yorgos Lanthimos first came to my attention, as to many, with Dogtooth (2009), a cracked family drama cum fairy tale about three siblings whose parents have raised them in the troubling seclusion of the family estate, filtering in outside influence only as they see fit. Their lives are an absurd grotesque, a surrealistic miniaturized totalitarian state where nothing really makes any sense. And that is the thematic space to which Lanthimos and writing partner Efthymis Filippou are drawn, as moths to flame. They create little worlds made of the stuff of our bigger one, and then heighten and exaggerate elements of those worlds to create an off-putting effect of simultaneous familiarity and unrecognizability. Lanthimos and Filippou enlarged the canvas a little on their next collaboration, The Lobster (2015), imagining a world where single people from The City must take up residence in The Hotel, where, upon failing to find a mate within 45 days, they will be transformed into the animal of their choosing and released into The Woods. The Hotel is, of course, operated with a kind of fascistic dispassion and everyone speaks in a very specific, clipped cadence. Even more so than in Dogtooth, the effect is jarring but also mesmerizing: Lanthimos’ strength of vision for the esthetic construction of his movies, his sense of where to put the camera and how to move it through a scene, how to block those scenes and how his actors deliver their lines, is so strong, so evident from the outset, that the weirdness of the created world becomes acceptable. How could it be any other way? That being said, these movies are likely to alienate as many viewers — more, probably — as they attract. Because even

as they address the human experience and love and loyalty and social norms, they do it by putting a heightened reality under a microscope so that the inconsistencies of human reasoning, the innate hypocrisies of our rules and codes, stand out in stark relief. More simply, these movies are frequently, nakedly unpleasant and, if we actually choose to engage with them, will force us to think about them long after they’ve ended. This may never have been more true than with The Killing of a Sacred Deer, which is, for me, without a doubt one of the finest movies of 2017 and one which I would hesitate to recommend to most. In a kind-of, sort-of present day Midwestern American city, Steven Murphy (Colin Farrell), a successful cardiologist, has befriended a teenage boy named Martin (Barry Keoghan). They meet for lunch and drive down to watch the river and talk. Martin is odd in his affect, to put it mildly, and Steven conceals his relationship with the boy from his colleagues. Eventually, though, he invites Martin to his home to meet the family: wife Anna (Nicole Kidman), also a doctor; daughter Kim (Raffey Cassidy); son Bob (Sunny Suljic). Their visitor, with his affable awkwardness, insinuates himself into the family’s good graces, with Kim becoming almost immediately infatuated. Soon enough, though, Bob is stricken with a mysterious ailment that tests the bonds of the family while also illuminating the motivation for Martin’s closeness to Steven. One could interpret The Killing of a Sacred Deer as Lanthimos and Filippou’s attempt at applying their particular sensibility to a revenge thriller, I suppose. But in the context of their previous collaborations, it seems more like an organic progression. It is, in a way, a step back toward the mundane and everyday from the reality of The Lobster, even as the psychological intensity of its narrative is intensified. And on paper that narrative is a more straightforward and potentially boilerplate one. But it is carried off with such commitment from the cast, with such a strong aesthetic — from the cringe-worthy tracking shots through the corridors of a large hospital, to the despair-inducing planar gray expansiveness of Ohio, to the prickly, rising sounds of

tionist and social reformer who made his money off “freak shows” and minstrelsy. Michelle Williams and Zac Efron also star. Statue of Barnum on the Arcata Plaza unlikely. PG. 105M. BROADWAY. INSIDIOUS: THE LAST KEY. The fourth chapter in this horror series with parapsychologist sleuth Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) investigating the scariest thing yet: her childhood. PG-13. 103M. BROADWAY, FORTUNA, MILL CREEK.

JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE. A remake of a 1995 Robin Williams vehicle that somehow combines Breakfast Club teen dynamics, body-swap comedies, aggressive hippos and The Rock’s skeptical eyebrow? Sure, why not? PG-13. 119M. BROADWAY, FORTUNA, MILL CREEK, MINOR.

PITCH PERFECT 3. Farewell tour for pun-happy franchise whose talented cast (Rebel Wilson, Anna Kendrick) can’t seem to synergize plot into satisfying fans. PG13. 94M. BROADWAY.

THE SQUARE. This Palme D’Or winner, a Swedish satire about performance art, should satisfy your need to feel smart, when really we know you’re there to watch Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, The Handmaid’s Tale) tear it up, per usual. R. 142M. MINIPLEX STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI. An ambitious, funny installment of the beloved franchise that should satisfy both mega-fans and fair-weather Wookies. PG13. 153M. BROADWAY, FORTUNA, MILL CREEK, MINOR.

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI. A sterling cast (Woody Harrelson, Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell, Abbie Cornish, Zeljko Ivanek and Peter Dinklage) does admirable work in a drama about a small-town murder but the film unravels in the last act. R. 115M. BROADWAY. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill and Linda Stansberry ●

The petition for probate requests that PATRICIA ATWOOD; CLFP be appointed as personal representative to admin− ister the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on January 18, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at the Superior Court of California, County of Humboldt, 825 Fifth Street, Eureka, in Dept.: 4. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objec− tions or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the dece− dent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the Cali− fornia Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in Cali− fornia law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person inter− ested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE−154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250.
