#StillMissing By Thadeus Greenson firstname.lastname@example.org
BekahM. #TheBachelor. There. I had to get the hashtags in right off the bat in the hopes someone will actually read this. In case you missed it, the Journal broke a story last week that went viral and wound up re-reported by publications from the New York Times and Vanity Fair to Golf Digest and the Hollywood Reporter. On one level, it was quite a phenomenon to behold. We posted a story to our website at about 3:45 p.m. on Feb. 1, noting that a woman — Rebekah Martinez — listed on the California Attorney General’s database of missing persons out of Humboldt County is currently a contestant on the hit television show The Bachelor, which airs on ABC and draws millions of viewers. We knew it was only a matter of time before the story went viral. It checked all the boxes — the man-bites-dog element of the unexpected with someone missing on national television and the inclusion of a celebrity — one who also happens to be young, female and objectively attractive. Add in the detail of a Humboldt County pot farm, and the story was click-bait gold. It was still fascinating to watch it unfold. The San Francisco Chronicle was the first to repost the story the evening of Feb. 1, but things didn’t really start moving until around 7 a.m. the following day, when New York Magazine Associate Editor Madison Kircher tweeted the Journal’s story out to her 5,000 followers, which include a who’swho of entertainment media. The stories quickly followed: Decided posted at 8:21 a.m. Buzzfeed at 9:14 a.m. The Daily Beast at 9:28 a.m. Vanity Fair at 10:31 a.m. The Washington Post at 11 a.m. People at 11:03 a.m. USA Today at noon, and the New York Times at 12:29 p.m. (Thanks to freelance journalist Kelly Donahue, who compiled the times in a story about the viral nature of our story.) Virtually all the reporting linked back to our coverage, and we watched our website numbers soar as hundreds of thousands of people who had previously been arguing about whether Martinez — known as Bekah M on the show — was too young to make out with Arie the bachelor, let alone marry him, flooded to read our coverage. Now don’t get us wrong, the clicks are nice and there’s something intoxicating about a piece you produced capturing so much attention. But we’re also keenly aware that this story captured all this attention
for all the wrong reasons. Its popularity was a by-product of our celebrity-obsessed, reality-TV culture. So in most iterations of the story we broke, which wound up read by millions of people, there was little if any mention of Humboldt County’s dubious distinction of having the highest per-capita rate of missing persons cases in the state, much less of the drug and alcohol abuse epidemic, the pervasive homelessness, the fractured families and the clandestine history of cannabis farming in the region that form the foundation of this distinction. There was little if any mention of the dozens of people truly missing from Humboldt, people disappeared or presumed dead, leaving grieving families searching for answers and grasping for closure. (Consider that almost 200 times more people read the Martinez story on our website than took the time to click through a slideshow of the people who are actually missing.) And there was similarly little, if any, examination of what this story says about our law enforcement agencies and their missing persons databases, or the general embarrassment of both ambling along totally oblivious to the fact that one of their listees was posting to Instagram and appearing on national television. Now please don’t read this as an indictment of the Humboldt County Sheriff ’s Office, which we realize has 4,000 square miles to patrol with limited staff and funding, not to mention a seemingly ever-increasing pile of confirmed homicide cases to investigate. But it should be impossible to read Martinez’s story and our coverage of missing persons cases in general without seeing that there are some very real flaws that need to be addressed if we as a community are really going to do all we can to find the missing. And that’s what this conversation should be about, right? There are people in this community who disappeared, seemingly without a trace. They left behind people who love them, people whose lives will be dominated by their absence and unanswered questions. This issue of the North Coast Journal is about them. #StillMissing. ● Thadeus Greenson is the Journal’s news editor. Reach him at 442-1400, extension 321, or email@example.com.

Editor: My sister is one of the disappeared (“The Humboldt 35,” Feb. 1). She vanished into thin air. How this happened remains a mystery. Possible explanations include murder, escape and assisted suicide. I like to imagine she was rescued from Humboldt by one of her old boyfriends, who whisked her off to a tropical paradise like Costa Rica. This is improbable but it comforts me. She has or had mental health issues, and although she is an extreme case, her disappearance puts a spotlight on our utterly, utterly inadequate mental health services environment, which has only worsened in the years since her disappearance, even as our county’s mental health problems have intensified.

Keep Marching Forward Editor: The turnout for the Women’s March in Eureka was inspiring and heartening. Reading Cheri Ward’s letter (Mailbox, Feb. 1) it occurred to me that she is likely not alone in vacillating between the feelings of being empowered at the march and feeling defeated again afterward. If she and others are looking for a constructive outlet, may I suggest getting involved with The Power (to the People) Lunch group?

cilmember Elizabeth Conner, these are brief, fun and productive sessions where community-minded individuals gather for an hour or two twice a month to make phone calls to elected officials and other decision makers. Call sheets are well researched so they are effective and timely and include summaries of the issue, who to call with phone numbers and skillfully written scripts that make a simple ask or comment. You might be calling on a topic of economic or social justice, environmental protection or other key progressive issue but you can be assured that your time will be well used. Great homemade food is served and you rub shoulders with others in our community, many of whom were at the march and all of whom want to make a difference.

Approximately 5,000 people gathered on Madaket Plaza for the Women’s March in Eureka on Saturday, Jan. 20, joining 1 million concerned people who marched nationwide. Many people came together quickly to make a local march a reality. We are grateful to the Humboldt Del Norte Central Labor Council for sponsoring the insurance and all those who raised $2,000 on GoFundMe! We are thankful to Lisa Stephenson for opening our event to respect the ancestral Wiyot land, and to our great MC, Denise Ryles. We appreciate all those who spoke at the rally: Brandie Wilson of Humboldt Area Center for Harm Reduction (HACHR), Vivian Deniston of SEIU Local 2015, Brenda Perez and Sanjuanita Medina of Centro del Pueblo, Tia Oros Peters of Seventh Generation Fund, Rhea McCoy and Danielle Vigil Matsen of Hupa, Paula Arrow-Smith Jones of Northcoast Rape Crisis Team, Gay Loo Gilchrist of Women in Black, Kelsey Reedy of Move to Amend, Pat Kanzler of Healthcare 4 All, Pastor Bethany Cseh of True North, Allen McCloskey of North Coast People’s Alliance and the Raging Grannies for kicking off the march with protest songs!

Our Superior President @northcoastjournal
8 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018 • northcoastjournal.com
Editor: I believe after one year in office that Donald Trump has earned the title of “Superior President” (Mailbox, Jan. 18). The first indication came right after his inauguration. Despite photos clearly
showing the contrary, Trump declared he “had the biggest audience in the history of inaugural speeches,” a declaration that was strongly supported by his representatives when challenged by the press. Then, over the summer, it was rumored that Secretary of State Tillerson had called him a “moron,” so Trump challenged him to compare IQ test scores, adding “I can tell you who is going to win.” Similarly, when North Korean leader Kim Jung Un stated he had a nuclear button at the ready, Trump quickly responded that he, too, has a button, “but it is a much bigger and more powerful one.” When Trump was recently accused of racism for allegedly making disparaging remarks about immigrants from some poor predominantly non-white countries, he defined himself as being the “least racist person,” a phrase he has used many times before when such accusations have been made. And finally, we find Trump gloating about his perfect score on a mental cognition test. He implied his score shows he’s smart even though the test is limited to measuring basic mental skills in order to detect mild cognitive impairment that could indicate the onset of dementia for instance. Given all these examples of his evident “superiority” (and I’m sure there are many others), I think that along with his title “Superior President,” Trump deserves a theme song as well, so I nominate from the musical Annie Get Your Gun Irving Berlin’s duet “Anything You Can Do (I Can Do Better).” Of course, if he were to adopt it, he would need to find someone who would dare to sing the second part with him. Yes, he can, no he can’t! Sherman Schapiro, Blue Lake
Correction A story headlined “Bench Clearing” in the Feb. 1, 2018, edition of the North Coast Journal misspelled Kim Bartleson’s name. Additionally, the article included the incorrect dates of Jerry Brown’s first stint as California governor, which ran from 1975 to 1983. The Journal regrets the errors.
Write a Letter! Please make your letter no more than 300 words and include your full name, place of residence and phone number (we won’t print your number). Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The weekly deadline to be considered for the upcoming edition is 10 a.m. Monday. ●

A committee pileup as the Board of Supervisors contemplates declaring a shelter crisis By Linda Stansberry email@example.com

n Monday night, Bryan Hall, executive director of the Eureka Rescue Mission, received a call from the house manager of the men’s shelter. “There was a man dropped off in a wheelchair with one leg, no hands and a colostomy bag with nowhere to go,” Hall wrote on Facebook. “Needless to say, we brought him in and took care of him and tended to his needs. I met him this morning and he is a very nice man and has had a very rough life. Hopefully, we will be able to connect him with services that will suit his needs.” That man is just one of hundreds of homeless people in Humboldt County whom service providers are struggling to get warm, safe and sheltered. According to the most recent point-in-time count, there are 364 fewer shelter beds than there are homeless men, women and children in Humboldt County. One of the suggested methods of addressing this, brought before the Board of Supervisors on Jan. 9, is to declare a shelter crisis and/ or form a task force addressing homelessness. After a very long and spirited discussion with copious public comment, the board agreed to form an ad hoc committee consisting of First District Supervisor Rex Bohn and Second District Supervisor Estelle Fennell to explore and present on these options. On Feb. 6, Bohn and Fennell returned to the forum with a rather anticlimactic recommendation: Form another committee, this one focused on affordable housing trust fund expenditures. (A draft version of a shelter crisis declaration was also put forward but Bohn and Fennell were lukewarm on the idea.) It will be several weeks before the board sees and votes on a finalized draft of either the declaration or the committee. In the meantime, local homeless and housing advocates continue to work on a problem that has stymied cities up and down the West Coast. The discussion of how to address the immediate need of the homeless and

vulnerable in Humboldt County seemed to be gaining ground in November, when Sally Hewitt, senior program manager for the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services and co-chair of the Humboldt Housing and Homeless Coalition (HHHC), announced that there was a small pool of money to help create a 24-7, low-barrier emergency shelter, setting a goal start date of Dec. 1. Committee members from a wide spectrum of fields, including faith groups, law enforcement and various nonprofits pitched in to suggest potential sites and services. But the
trict Supervisor Virginia Bass mused at the Jan. 9 meeting. “There’s a lot that needs to be considered.” Hewitt, responding to questions from the board, said the declaration of a crisis could, at the very least, underscore what’s evident to the naked eye of everyone living in or driving through the county. “The reality is, everywhere you look there are homeless people,” she told the board, adding that 58 percent of all homeless people in the county had “no shelter at all” and 47 percent were chronically homeless, meaning they had been contin-

As the Journal went to print, Hewitt responded to a request for comment by saying that a new, promising location had been identified and was being evaluated. A shelter crisis declaration could potentially free up land previously off-limits due to zoning restrictions, although its usefulness in this matter is dependent on what language the board may opt to include if it passes the declaration. “People are saying, ‘declare a crisis,’ but what does that really mean?” Fourth Dis-
uously homeless for more than a year. Darlene Spoor, executive director of Arcata House, added that a great deal of those seeking services are in grave physical health. “We get at least two calls a week [from hospitals or care providers] saying, ‘We cannot release this person to the streets or they will die,’” she told the board. In the most recent meeting of the HHHC on Feb. 1, which was dedicated to updating the Department of Health and Human Services’ “10 Year Plan to End Homelessness” so it would qualify for state funding, committee members dis-
cussed the challenges of housing our large and diverse population of homeless people. There is, they agreed “no one-size-fitsall,” solution. Some clients are legally blind, in wheelchairs or struggling with chronic health conditions. Some have partners. Others have pets. Many have addiction issues. Of the clients who qualify for some sort of assistance, almost none qualify for enough to pay market-rate rent. Of those who can afford a place to live, many have eviction histories that make rental companies pass them by. At the Feb. 6 meeting of the Board of Supervisors, Lynette Mullen, homeless services manager for the Eureka Police Department, spoke during public comment to say that wraparound strategies for those housed were essential. “Housing First is absolutely the strategy but it will need more than that,” she said. Fennell, rolling out the idea of a committee that would investigate funding sources for affordable housing, emphasized that the county had already committed to a Housing First strategy as recommended by Focus Strategies, and there were sufficient state tools in place for such a committee to implement creative solutions. “I have concerns about shelter crisis declaration,” Fennell said, adding that, “the majority of the homeless are within the Eureka city limits and the city of Eureka has already declared a crisis.” Bohn said he was concerned that an ersatz shelter on public land, one of the potential outcomes of a shelter crisis declaration, might put the county into conflict with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The county has already come under fire for its non-compliance with ADA restrictions. Bohn emphasized the importance of private citizens, faith groups and non-governmental organizations working to address homelessness. “I got a lot done before I got elected,” he said, calling the rules and regulations associated with government work an “anchor on your butt.” “I think the only way we’re going to do it is by working with the private sector,” Bohn went on. “We might have to work with the big nasty developers. That’s who gets it done, the DANCOs and the Strombecks. Nobody came in here with the tool belt today. We’re looking to Sacramento for help but they have 30 to 40 people camping on the Capitol lawn every night.” Public comment on the issue lasted approximately a half hour, with 12 people speaking. Several charged the ad hoc committee with being un-responsive to the original request, which was to declare a shelter crisis and authorize a task force. Bass and Third District Supervisor Mike
Wilson expressed some support for both the suggestion of a committee and a shelter crisis declaration, although they asked that the final version of the shelter crisis declaration come back before them with a modified timeframe, as the original draft scheduled the crisis declaration to expire June 1. Wilson also asked for some specific language to be added to the committee draft resolution that would go beyond seeking funding and into more specific efforts. He said he may have to vote no because the language, as written, “did not super sorry last change... the model numbers i guess got mixed up go far enough.” a little.

Supervisor Mike Wilson expressed concern about a lack of concrete solutions in proposal language. Fifth District Supervisor and board Chair Ryan Sundberg referenced a recent incident in his district in which a woman and a barefoot child were found sleeping on top of a “pile of trash” in a parked vehicle. “I hope people realize we care about this issue,” he said. Bohn said he understood the passion for a shelter crisis declaration but he “wasn’t there yet,” saying that he was concerned about sound implementation. “I know we’ve got a housing problem,” he told those assembled. “We’ve got an opioid problem. We’ve got a marijuana problem. We got problems up our ass. We’ve got to have people willing to step up.” Hewitt and others, however, seem optimistic. While the board did not endorse a shelter crisis or present an immediate solution, there are still options on the table. “I believe we are on track to having multiple solutions available to end homelessness in Humboldt County,” Hewitt told the Journal. ●

How to Get Involved 101
ow do we get rid of the ‘old boys club?” was the first question posed at Feb. 4’s Run, Serve, Lead! conference hosted by North Coast People’s Alliance to educate residents about becoming involved in the political landscape. The alliance grew out of the local efforts to elect Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders to office. The event’s panel included College of the Redwoods Trustee Danny Kelley, Arcata Mayor Sofia Pereira, Ferndale City Councilmember Patrick O’Rourke, former Supervisor Clif Clendenen and immigration rights activist Renee Saucedo, who each shared their unique experiences and thoughts on local government. “Forget about the good old boys,” advised Kelley, who defeated a nearly two-decade incumbent in November to take a seat on the college board. “Do what you think is right.” Pereira gave the keynote speech at the event, which focused on how to prepare for mounting an election campaign or working on one, noting that everyone has “different experiences that are valuable to local government.” “What’s that fire in your belly? What brought you here?” she asked the crowd of more than 100 gathered in the Multi-Generational Center in Fortuna. Echoing a similar sentiment, Saucedo urged those in attendance to take the

Fisherman Lost at Sea: Three times in three days the local U.S. Coast Guard was dispatched to help fishermen in distress. Two of those rescues ended successfully, with fishing crews safely brought ashore. But the other rescue effort, on Feb. 4, was suspended after crews spent 11 hours searching 700 square miles of water off the coast before suspending rescue efforts without recovering Bryan Scott Moore, who fell off a crabbing boat, according to the Kym Kemp’s report on Redheaded Blackbelt.

responsibility of governance into their own hands. “The most meaningful change happens in this country when everyday people organize around issues they deeply care about,” she said. O’Rourke agreed, saying involvement in local government starts with figuring out what talents and capabilities one has that can be useful to their community. “It’s something you do from the heart,” he said. Clendenen, meanwhile, also noted that the lack of depth many people have about the workings of their local government can be shocking. “It’s a steep learning curve,” he said. “It makes for a better democracy when people understand their government.” The alliance distributed information packets about how to become more involved, which are available online at www. northcoastpeoplesalliance.org. NCPA Vice Chair and event coordinator Carrie Peyton-Dahlberg said the main aim was to encourage Humboldt residents to get involved, whether that means a fullfledged bid for office, a part-time role on a campaign or a couple hours a week of phone banking. “If you have an hour or two, whatever time you’ve got, there’s something you can do,” she said. — Andrew Butler

Week in Weed

Left Behind By Thadeus Greenson email@example.com
little more than five weeks have passed since recreational marijuana became legal in California and local dispensaries remain bustling. “We’ve been a lot busier than we expected,” says Ray Markland, company manager for Eureka’s EcoCann dispensary. “We expected a 20 to 30 percent bump in business but it’s been 200 to 300 percent.” Mariellen Jurkovich, owner of the Humboldt Patient Resource Center in Arcata, agrees things have been “super busy” since the dispensary opened recreational sales last month. And that’s brought a variety of changes. “It’s been a different atmosphere,” Jurkovich says, adding that lines have swollen with first-time customers who bring a litany of questions about various products, from flowers to edibles to concentrates. Markland says he’s already seen a fair number of repeat customers, intoning that there’s more to this legal green rush than novelty alone. While the transition to legal recreational cannabis sales is exciting, it hasn’t been a boon for everyone.
16 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018 • northcoastjournal.com
“I think medical patients feel somewhat left behind,” Markland says. Medical marijuana patients, who have enjoyed a fairly stable marketplace for more than a decade, have indeed seen their medical supply chain upended overnight as the state put medical and recreational cannabis under a single regulatory umbrella. For medical patients, that means they’re now waiting in longer lines to buy more expensive products that they now also have to pay taxes on. While the regulations do allow patients with a state-issued medical identification card to avoid some taxes, Markland says most patients don’t want to go to the Department of Health and Human Services to have their name put in a statewide database. (The cards cost $100 and, Jurkovich says, MediCal patients get a $50 discount.) Most patients, Markland says, have even bristled at new regulations requiring customers to offer up their identification so dispensaries can make sure they don’t purchase more than the single ounce a day that the law allows. In addition to the taxes — which run almost 25 percent locally and as high as
40 percent in other parts of the state — prices are going up with the added regulations. Consider the production of a hash oil. Markland says manufacturers, which must now go through the expensive process of getting licensed and permitted, now have to source their trim and buds from licensed and permitted growers. The trim and bud must then be tested at a licensed lab before it’s used to make the oil, which then needs to be tested again before being brought to market by a licensed distributor. Each step adds costs that trickle down to recreational customers and patients alike. And while some dispensaries and nonprofits used to run programs for the catastrophically ill and indigent that gave them cannabis products at little or no cost, that’s now generally considered verboten under the new state guidelines, which require dispensaries to pay taxes on any products that move through their doors. But as with many regulations, it appears this is open to some interpretation. “The more you read the guidelines, they’re like the Bible — every religion reads them a little bit differently,” says Jurkovich, adding that she believes dispensaries are still allowed to give “free samples” to medical patients with a state identification card. As to broader concerns about whether there would be enough licensed supply to meet demand, Jurkovich and Markland say so far, so good. Markland says there have been some hiccups as far as getting specific products — pointing out that some locally produced offerings are now being distributed through San Francisco or Santa Rosa, which causes some hangups. He also adds that EcoCann stocked up heavily on cannabis flowers prior to the rules taking effect Jan. 1, meaning it hasn’t yet had to source its 24 strains of flowers through the newly regulated supply chains. Both he and Jurkovich say they’ve worked to develop relationships with local growers and distributors who have helped keep them at the front of the line. Currently, Markland says all but a few of the EcoCann’s products are grown and produced in Humboldt County but he wants to be able to boast having 100 percent local products in the near future to showcase and celebrate cannabis country’s best. “This is our shot,” he says. ●

Unlike The Bachelor’s Bekah M, these people aren’t famous, their stories haven’t gone viral and they haven’t been found By Thadeus Greenson and Linda Stansberry email@example.com
n some ways, Rebekah Martinez’s case isn’t that different from most of the hundreds of people who go missing in Humboldt County every year. Her mother expected her to call and, when she didn’t, phoned law enforcement at 1 a.m. on Nov. 18 to report her missing, saying her daughter had told her she was going to work on a marijuana farm but fell out of touch (also not atypical). And as happens in most of these cases, it seems Martinez quickly reconnected with her mother and both went on with their lives. Where Martinez’s story deviates from the norm is what happened next: She went on to become a burgeoning reality television star on the hit show The Bachelor, which began airing last month, though her name was never cleared from the state’s missing persons database. That set the stage for the story we broke Feb. 1 that quickly went viral, with newspapers and websites throughout the country running headlines about the reality star who was missing in plain sight. But lost in the viral coverage was how Martinez’s story, and some other less sensational ones like it, have exposed some major flaws with the state’s missing persons database and the way these cases are handled. It overshadowed the stories of dozens of people who are truly missing and the family members desperately waiting for closure. Vikki Joseph is one of those family members, her brother Jeff Joseph having gone missing near Willow Creek on June 21, 2014. She’s been researching his disappearance ever since and trying to bring attention to his case, which she fears isn’t being thoroughly investigated by the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. “It’s not fair to all these families who have been looking for answers for years and, because we’re not on a reality TV show, there’s no spotlight,” Vikki Joseph said. “Actually, it’s bullshit. It’s not right.” Last week, the Journal ran a cover story — “The Humboldt 35” — examining why Humboldt County has the highest per-capita rate of missing persons reports in California. As a part of the story, we posted a slideshow to Facebook featuring images of each of the 35 people listed on the California Attorney General’s database as having gone missing from Humboldt County and asked if readers recognized anyone. Within minutes, an astute reader — Amy Bonner O’Brien — replied with an emphatic yes, and pointed out that Martinez is currently vying for love — or at least stardom — on The Bachelor.
Rebekah Martinez’s Feb. 2 Instagram post (right) makes light of her once missing status, which was reported by news outlets throughout the country.
After some Googling returned Instagram images that appeared very similar to Martinez’s, we compared her missing persons profile with that on The Bachelor website and found a host of similarities. So we reached out to the sheriff’s office, which prompted an email from public information officer Samantha Karges to the deputy who initially took Martinez’s missing persons report, noting the similarity in images and asking if Martinez was still listed as missing. Ten minutes later, the deputy emailed Karges back: “I just got off the phone with Rebekah. She is in fact the same person. She has been removed from (the Missing and Unidentified Persons Unit).” We reported the story and it quickly went viral, fueled in part by a tweet from Martinez herself that linked back to the Journal’s reporting and said, “MOM. How many times do I have to tell you I don’t get cell service on the Bachelor??” She followed up with a crack about her driver’s license photo and a post on Instagram a short time later with a picture of herself on the side of a milk carton. While Martinez seemed to have some fun with the story that increased her newfound celebrity profile, others — including family members of the truly missing — found elements of her case unnerving. The timeline of events remains a bit murky, but The Bachelor began filming its current season Sept. 20. A few days prior, Martinez posted on her Instagram account that she was “giving up” her phone and social media for several weeks, which makes sense as the hit show reportedly requires contestants to turn in their phones to prevent any details of the show from leaking before it airs. At 1:06 a.m. on Nov. 18, Martinez’s mother called the sheriff’s office and reported her daughter missing, saying she last heard from her the morning of Nov. 12, when Martinez called on “a friend’s phone” to say she was going to work on a marijuana farm in Humboldt County and would see her in seven to eight days. “The deputy followed procedure, following up on all leads and forwarding the case to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division,” according to a press release. It’s unclear if Martinez was still on set at The Bachelor at this point and just made up the Continued on next page »

marijuana farm story or if she’d been eliminated and was actually headed to Humboldt County. What is clear is that on Nov. 23 she resumed posting photos to Instagram, breaking her Bachelor-imposed radio silence. On Dec. 12, according to the sheriff’s office, a deputy contacted Martinez’s mother by email, asking if she’d heard from her daughter. She responded that, in fact, her daughter had reached out to her the afternoon of Nov. 18 — the same day she’d been reported missing. The deputy reportedly asked the mother to have Martinez contact an investigator as soon as possible, as law enforcement can’t clear a missing persons case until making direct contact with its subject. Martinez apparently never reached out and her case consequently sat unnoticed until a Journal reader made the connection. And it’s worth noting here that Martinez’s case isn’t the only one that the Journal’s reporting helped clear from the system. The day before her story broke, just as last week’s Journal was hitting newsstands, we received a call from Daniel Ogden Stromberg, who’d been reported missing by family in July of 2017. Stromberg reported that he was living in Eureka with a roommate, entirely unaware that the Eureka Police Department had listed him as missing until he picked up a copy of the Journal and saw his name in print. And while researching an information request for this week’s story, Karges found that a man reportedly missing since February of 2010 — John Leyden — had been arrested four months later in Seattle and should have been cleared from the system almost eight years ago. So it’s understandable that family members of the missing — people like Vikki Joseph — would see all this and wonder just how much law enforcement attention is being paid to their loved ones. Tammy Jones Lankford, whose cousin Robert Tennison went missing in Alderpoint in January of 2009, said she has been frustrated at times with the sheriff’s office’s handling of his case, noting that she felt not much was done until she began personally working with a deputy on it in 2013. Lankford said she’s glad Martinez is safe but found her Twitter joke about the public release of her driver’s license photo being the “worst part” of the ordeal to be naïve. Until you have a family member go missing, she said, you can’t possibly understand the pain. “It’s really hard to understand how someone can be so flippant about being presumed missing … considering it’s a near epidemic in Humboldt County,” she said. “Why some get highly publicized and others go completely ignored is beyond me. I’m glad this story has a happy ending for her family. I just wish our family had the same.” The following is a list of every person currently listed as missing from Humboldt
County on the California Attorney General’s database, as well as a few others the Journal became aware of in researching this story. It’s unclear why they aren’t included in the AG’s list.
Mary Elizabeth Stuart was last seen
with her two small daughters, Fannie Fawn and Jessie Flo, then ages 1 and 2, on Dec. 10, 1977. She left her home in Honeydew with her two small daughters in tow to visit a television repair shop, do laundry and buy groceries. Her station wagon was found a month later but the family has never been seen again. Mary Elizabeth’s husband, Byron Stuart, was considered a key suspect but he died in 1996. A neighbor, Joe Paff, told the Journal that in the week after missing since the disappearance of his family, Stuart was Dec. 10, 1977 behaving erratically, using drugs and saying that Mary and the children had been taken by aliens. Mary Elizabeth, now 72, was described as standing 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighing about 135 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair. Her daughters would now be 42 and 43.
Edrel Mae Pierce was 57
when she disappeared on May 17, 1981. She reportedly walked a short way down her driveway in Honeydew to mail missing since some letters and never returned. An May 17, 1981 extensive search of the area by locals and law enforcement with cadaver dogs revealed nothing. She was said to be in poor health and suffering from a mental disorder. The area where she disappeared has been turned into a cannabis grow. Pierce, who would now be 93, is described as standing 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing about 150 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair. She was last seen wearing a light blue London Fog raincoat and a small white gold Bulova watch.

Ollie Letrell Cader, who would
now be 81, has been missing for more than 35 years, since he was last seen in Humboldt County on Oct. 9, 1981, when missing since he was 45. Cader is described as standing Oct. 9, 1981 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing about 145 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair. He was last seen wearing a green shirt. According to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, Cader’s case has been forwarded to the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office as a possible homicide.
John Stewart Campbell was last
seen Feb. 16, 1985. An 18-year-old Humboldt State University student, Campbell was reported missing by a residence hall advisor and a park ranger later missing since found his vehicle in a wilderness area but Feb. 16, 1985 there were no signs of a robbery, according to University Police Chief Donn Peterson. In the subsequent decades, the chief said, leads have taken the investigation to Canada, Ohio and elsewhere but the case remains an active, open missing persons investigation. Campbell’s family, Peterson said, has held out hope. “It’s a heartbreaking case,” Peterson said. “The parents have no closure.” Campbell is described as standing 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighing about 160 pounds, with blue eyes and blond hair. He has some discoloration on his face, as well as freckles. He would now be 51.

Little is known about Pogue’s case except he has a tattoo of a rose on his left leg and was evidently missing since in police custody in Trinity County as of Oct. 1, 1990 April of 1991. He was reported missing in 1994, according to Eureka Police Department. Pogue, who was about 26 when last seen by family, is described as standing 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighing about 200 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

disappeared while walking down Broadway on the afternoon of Nov. 25, 1997, at the age of 16. A witness described Mitchell as having possibly gotten in missing since a light blue fourdoor sedan driven Nov. 25, 1997 by a white man who looked to be around 60 to 70 years old. EPD has investigated a number of different leads, including information that she was alive and well and tending bar in Iowa (proven false) and that her disappearance was connected to eccentric scion Robert Durst (unproven). Mitchell, who would now be 37, is described as standing 5 feet 5 inches tall and

County Counsel Prepared Title and Summary of Proposed Measure Title: Humboldt County Immigration Sanctuary Ordinance Summary for the Proposed Measure (499 words) California state law limits the discretion of state and local law enforcement and other public agencies and public and private employers to cooperate with federal civil immigration enforcement agency activities. (Government Code sections 7282-7285.3.) State law recognizes that the discretion of local agency officials may be further limited by local law or policy (e.g., Gov. Code sections 7282.5 (a) and 7284.6 (a)(1)(C)). The proposed measure would enact an ordinance establishing more restrictive local law and policies for the County of Humboldt regarding immigration status and enforcement. Specific prohibitions, restrictions and polices are listed for the use of county funds, county law enforcement officials, all county agencies, and the welfare of children of deported parents. None of the limitations will prohibit county employees or officers from discussing immigration status as part of a service request, obeying lawful orders, taking action to protect persons or respond to emergencies, or investigating criminal activity other than violations of immigration law. Exceptions to the prohibitions, restrictions, and policies apply when the action is required by federal or state statutes or regulations, court orders or decisions. The Sheriff and Juvenile Probation Officer are each required to provide semi-annual reports to the Board of Supervisors on the number of any detentions based solely on civil immigration detainers for each sixmonth period beginning with the effective date of the ordinance. The report is to include a description of all communications to or from the federal agency charged with enforcement of immigration law. If enacted, the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors is required to send copies of the ordinance to all County departments, agencies and commission, U.S. Senators and Congresspersons representing California, the federal immigration enforcement agency, the U.S. Attorney General, Secretary of State, and the President. County employees are to be given written instructions for implementing the ordinance and be advised that failure to comply with prohibitions will be grounds for appropriate disciplinary action.

Hand Making Skateboards in Arcata A backyard business for sidewalk surfers By Sam Armanino
ver the last five years, the cracks and crannies of Arcata’s sidewalks have eaten me up and the unpredictable weather left me with a heavy and rusted cruising setup. It was time for me to get something new to roll around the sleepy town with. Steven Driedger’s boards caught my eye with their color and shape, so I visited his workshop. In a quiet corner of Sunny Brae in Arcata, the sounds of a small woodworking operation bounced through a redwood backyard. A workbench held a table saw, a sander, wood glue and everything else Driedger needs to build a custom skateboard. “The nose of the board is going to sit right there,” he said as he marked the edge of the wooden planks with a blue pen. He lined up six slices of nicely grained hardwood as he stepped back to picture the soon-to-be skateboard deck cut out and ready to ride through the Arcata streets. The home of the skateboard builder is full of college students, mismatched furniture and two dogs that never stop playing. It takes Driedger about five days to build a skateboard deck from scratch between a part-time job making coffee at Dutch Bros. and volunteering his time with the Arcata Fire District. “Now that I am up here, I’ve been getting that urge to build and create things again,” said Driedger, who moved to Arcata to attend Humboldt State University, graduating in 2014 with a degree in recreation administration. “I’ve learned to be picky with the wood I use,” Driedger said. “The first board I used had kind of a soft core and now I’ve become pretty picky with the strength of the wood.” The process is simple for him. He learned woodworking from his dad in his

Southern California childhood home in Santa Clarita. Driedger was in community college when he built his first board — back then, he said, he had to park about 2 miles from his place because he wasn’t on the lease and couldn’t get a parking spot. “I got really tired of walking 2 miles to my car and back to my studio, so I needed a skateboard.” Some of his recent skateboards are made of purpleheart, zebra, Chechen and Wenge hardwoods that were imported from all over the world. The largest piece of wood will go in the center and bear the weight of the trucks and wheels. “I’m just building these skateboards in my backyard. I’m hanging out in Humboldt and feasting on all its goodies, going outside and adventuring and camping and backcountry hiking and enjoying breweries and the buddies that are still up here,” Driedger said. Driedger models and carves the boards with the design of a small surfboard, complete with an old-school ’70s fishtail. I had my eye on one made from a large slab of straight grained purpleheart that contrasted with the zebra wood to its side. The size was exactly what I wanted: not so big as to be bulky in my arms and not so small to be uncomfortable on the road. Of course, I had to get on one before making my final decision. With a confident push from my left foot, I began to carve my way down Driedger’s street. With these boards, you’re going to feel the character of the road under your feet — every bump and divot. There’s no flex and zero tail to pick up the nose. It takes a little getting used to. While this may seem like a negative for a cruiser, there’s something genuine about riding handmade artwork through Arcata roads. Once you get used to how they
ride, you’ll find they pump a lot more like a surfboard on a concrete wave. “It’s not compressed wood like the trick decks you see; those are designed to have some flex. These are hardwood so they’re not supposed to be stomped on and that’s why they’re meant for cruising,” Driedger said. After Driedger selects individual planks of wood, it’s time to measure and make the first cuts. He lines the strips of wood to his table saw and triple checks his measurements. After the pieces are in place, he cuts small indents in the woods and glues them together. Each board will sit tight, between six clamps, for more than 24 hours before it’s ready. When it’s dried solid, Driedger takes the board to Almquist Lumber Company to take down a few centimeters on the top and bottom. He cuts and sprays on a special glass epoxy for grip. “It’s really for the grain to pop out from under the grip,” he said. I was sold when he said he never makes the same board. Mind you, they aren’t cheap — they range from $150-$200 for a 30-inch cruiser and $180-$200 for a long board. Some may look similar and they all have the same short fishtail surf cut, but Driedger said he makes each board custom and isn’t interested in changing anytime soon. “Right now, I’m not taking it too seriously,” Driedger said. “I’m just rolling with it. It’s kind of a fun side hobby. As long as people want a board made, I enjoy making them and I’ll do it. But I’m not going to mass produce a bunch of boards.” You can reach Steven Driedger via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and check out his work on Instagram @humbalay.

Ceramicist Joel Diepenbrock pours tea at the Sanctuary By Gabrielle Gopinath email@example.com
rcata-based ceramicist Joel Diepenbrock’s exhibition this month at the Sanctuary is part traditional display, part interactive rite. Diepenbrock’s vessels are completed in the act of use. When he presents his wares during Arts Arcata, he will be hosting members of the public in a tea ceremony using his own pieces, inspired by traditional designs used in Chinese and Japanese tea rituals. “Most of the bowls are Japanese cha wan tea bowls, which are low and wide. It’s a really nice simple way to drink tea,” Diepenbrock observes. “Because of the way the bowl’s shaped, you get to see the leaves unfurl, which is nice.” The Chinese gong fu tea ritual, he points out, involves a wider range of paraphernalia than its Japanese equivalent. The ritual of tea in this tradition can involve several brewing vessels, a tea pitcher and a brewing tray, in addition to teaspoons, cups and bowls. All these forms are traditionally made from fired ceramics. Diepenbrock is animated as he describes the technical aspects of making the work, especially the process of firing vessels in a wood-burning kiln: “like painting with fire and ash.” “Everything you do influences the final outcome in ways that are impossible to predict,” he notes. “Loading the kiln influences the way the ash drifts around in the interior during the firing process. The type of wood you’re burning influences the vessel’s appearance. The type of ash makes a difference in terms of altering particle size and color,” he says. Firing vessels in a wood-burning kiln may take as long as 72 hours, during which the kiln demands skilled round-the-clock supervision. Its temperature, which may range from 1,200 to upwards of 2,500 degrees, needs to be maintained precisely for optimum results. As the vessels cool, complex glazed surfaces form. “Usually what comes out is a surprise,” Diepenbrock says. “Not always good! So many unexpected things happen.

Sometimes you don’t know the purpose of a pot until it comes into your life.” The tea ceremonies that inspire the artist most directly have been shaped by hundreds of years of Buddhist ritual in China and Japan. But since graduating from Humboldt State University with a degree in art last year, he has had no shortage of opportunities to practice his craft locally. Employed at Fire Arts in Arcata as a ceramics technician, he also fires vessels regularly at several noted area potters’ wood-fired kilns, including Thomas Fossier’s in McKinleyville, David Zdrazil and Shannon Sullivan’s in Myrtletown and Conrad Calimpong’s in Ferndale. He credits the camaraderie of the local wood-fired ceramics community and the emphasis placed by area potters on social networks as an inspiration. In Diepenbrock’s eyes, teaware finds its highest purpose when it is used to create communion among two or more people. Any such event, he points out, can be considered a tea ceremony — a way for human beings to be fully present and engaged with one another in real time, with tea and teaware playing key roles as humble but essential mediating agents. Smooth-surfaced and elegant in contour, the bowls and cups he makes please without presuming to demand. Like a relay runner’s baton, they are less important than the event that forms around them;
28 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018 • northcoastjournal.com
yet without their unobtrusive presence, that event would not occur. Taking part in a tea ceremony can make you recalibrate your sense of pace and time. The ceremony’s events take place at micro scale. Leaves unfold in boiling water. Steam rises. Tiny beads of sublimated moisture accrue on the lip of a stoneware cup. The scent that fills the air is simultaneously peachy, starchy and mossy. It smells both ancient and new. Diepenbrock uses different styles of tea but often prefers to brew fermented Chinese pu-erh tea in its traditional compressed form. Each tuo cha tablet is a nut-brown puck of fermented camellia sinensis leaves, arrested in some cases on the very cusp of decomposition, then compressed and dried. When these layers begin to unfold in simmering water, the vapors that rise fill the nose with a dark, earthy, mushroom-y smell reminiscent of the forest floor. Diepenbrock has given a lot of thought to the subject of matching of tea with vessel, not only in terms of appearance but in terms of the way the brewing vessel’s materials can affect tea’s flavor. Pairing delicate white or oolong teas with fine porcelain ware can bring out subtle aspects of their tastes, he says, while using an ironware teapot can infuse pu-erhs with a mineral tang that accentuates their flavor profiles.
In conversation, Diepenbrock emphasizes the cyclical nature of the various processes involved in his vessels’ creation and use. “It’s a full circle — the making, the firing and then the use. When you use your own teaware, it’s more like a closed circle. When you use vessels other people have made, that opens the circle up. It’s a way of transferring energy.” The ritual of tea is social, although not in the same way that Facebook is. Approached with intent, the act of pouring out tea for oneself and a companion can be a way to enter into contemplation of the here and now. It doesn’t matter, Diepenbrock said, whether the ceremony is humble or formal. Making a ceremony out of tea can be a way to put quotes around a discrete instance of human exchange. It articulates a space where people can get together in real space and time, leaving their mediating screens and twittering devices temporarily behind. ●
Joel Diepenbrock’s ceramics will be on view at the Sanctuary Arcata, 1301 J St., Arcata through February. The artist hosts a tea ceremony during Arts! Arcata on Friday, Feb. 9 from 5:30 - 9 p.m. For more information call 822-0898 or visit www.sanctuaryarcata.org.

or years I’ve flipped through an old Irish cookbook in my kitchen and smiled at a recipe for beef heart called Love in Disguise: You cut the heart open, strip the insides, stuff it, roast it and carve it at the table. If you’ve ever had a truly rough breakup, you might wonder at the word “disguise.” As much as I heart heart, and offal in general — from tripe to sweetbreads to the chewy gizzards tucked inside a roasting chicken — and as much as I enjoy imagining myself as Snow White’s evil-fabulous stepmother, I’ve never made that recipe. The great mass of smooth, lean muscle that is a beef heart, with its deep, blood-rich, gamey flavor and firm texture, has always seemed to me best in morsels. In my family, long before the gentrification of nose-to-tail cuisine, we ate it thinly sliced and pan fried with soy sauce and green onions, letting its thick gravy soak into hot rice. It was a treat that I now realize was on offer because we were broke. As an adult, I didn’t return to heart until I lived alone with no roommates to horrify when it showed up on a shelf in the fridge on a foam tray pooling with dark blood like a spill of Burgundy. And yeah, OK, I was broke again. Unlike so many other cuts, it has yet to take over high-end menus so you can still grab a bargain (around $2.50 will get you a whole one) and the brass hipster ring of saying you were eating it before it was cool. It does take a little more prep than a boneless, skinless chicken breast but that comes with more flavor and the payoff of knowing and appreciating what you’re eating. There, spread out on the cutting
board before you, are the left and right ventricles you may not have seen since high school biology, the pale, tough chordae tendinae to be snipped away — all the involuntary cardiac muscle it takes to pump life through a 1,000 to 2,000-pound animal that you are going to waste just a little less of. Beef heart, along with being cheap and pleasing the ghosts of your waste-notwant-not ancestors, is wonderful in place of flank steak in a stir fry or marinated and grilled. And if, on the cusp of Valentine’s Day, you’re looking for a strong metaphor, it’s tough to beat. May I suggest heart cut to ribbons, skewered and lightly charred? Call it Love Undisguised.
Love Undisguised or Skewered Heart These are best cooked on an outdoor grill but can be done in a broiler under a watchful eye and with the oven door propped open a couple of inches. Serves 4. 1 beef heart 3 tablespoons soy sauce 2 tablespoons mirin 1 tablespoon sake 1 tablespoon sesame oil 2-3 bunches green onions 2 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped Freshly ground black pepper Bamboo skewers Cover 10-12 bamboo skewers in water and set aside. To prepare the heart, first rinse it with

cold water inside and out, then pat it very dry. If you’re buying it from a butcher, the insides will be mostly cleaned out but you’ll still need to trim away any stringy bits and the membrane. With a sharp knife, make a small cut in the surface and pull the membrane away and off. Don’t go crazy. A little membrane won’t kill you, just remind you you’re eating organ meat. Turn the meat over and trim away the patches of fat from the outside, renewing your vow to exercise more and cut back on the doughnuts. Using the same method as on the interior of the heart, cut and peel away most of the outer membrane. Slice the meat into long, thin strips and set aside. Clean, trim and chop 3 green onions. In a glass bowl, mix the soy sauce, mirin, sake, sesame oil, chopped green onions, garlic and a couple of grinds of black pepper. Add the meat, turning it until it’s coated in the marinade and place it covered in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours. Trim the remaining green onions and cut them into 1-inch pieces. Skewer the strips of meat in a zig-zag around the green onions. Heat up the grill and place the skewers over a medium flame for 4 minutes per side. (If you are skipping the green onions, reduce the time to 3 minutes per side.) Serve as an appetizer or over rice. ● Jennifer Fumiko Cahill is the arts and features editor at the Journal.

Music and Poetry and Music By Collin Yeo
email@example.com t’s fitting that this year Valentine’s Day falls on Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, when Catholics traditionally give something up to pay penance to a greater spiritual truth. Love and romance, in my experience, also involve giving things away and sometimes those things are just too much and the whole thing crumbles like the resolve of a fasting penitent after a week of withholding. Love and devotion are strange beasts, and their bite marks are often dire. I am navigating this macabre love holiday with my two perennial loves: music and poetry. Specifically, the music of my all-time favorite band, which I recently decided after much thought is Thin Lizzy. Why Thin Lizzy? Because on a very basic level it has it all: songs about love, heartbreak, nostalgic pitfalls of memory and fighting and drinking. An entire rainbow of complicated human experiences covered in the deceptively simple but brilliant language in which the Irish sometimes speak and sung through the heart-worn voice of the late Phil Lynott. Plus dual-harmony, hard-rock solos are just like heaven when pulled off correctly. Anyway, retreating into music is one thing — you can do that at top volume while firing down the highway, after all — but poetry is another critter entirely. One of my favorite melancholic creations is that stanza from Shelley’s “To A Skylark”: “We look before and after, And pine for what is not: Our sincerest laughter With some pain is fraught; Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought.” Or how about that message about intellectual love and devotion directed to a critic of high esteem by Willie S. from the final couplet of his 112th sonnet? “You are so strongly in my purpose bred, That all the world besides methinks are dead.” Woof, it would shiver my timbers and crack my foundations if the right person told me that. Maybe keep that one in your back pocket for when you meet the right person, dear reader. And bringing it back to the local nightlife, which is my beat and purview, what would be the proper mantra for that? How about the opening

Marbles, those gorgeous, colorfully swirled little glass balls of art, have their days in the sun (or fog) when Humboldt Marble Weekend rolls around Feb. 8-11, with a meet-and-greet night, marble show and mega marble hunt.

Meet marble artists and fellow hunters/collectors, and enjoy music by Doug Fir and the 2x4s. Then on Friday, Feb. 9 and Saturday, Feb. 10, head to the big Marble Show at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds from noon to 6 p.m. (free admission) to meet marble makers and see the work of more than 40 glass artists from around the country who’ll be creating, showing, selling and hiding the little glass worlds. You’ll also see live glass blowing demonstrations. For such small things, marbles are kind of big deal. Especially here in Humboldt, where we have our share of glass artists. Then it’s the big day. Sunday, Feb. 11, when Humboldt loses its marbles. And it’s up to you to find them. The Massive Marble Hunt starts at noon with the tiny orbs spread around the county in spots of varying degrees of difficulty. Like fingerprints, no two marbles are alike. And traipsing around Humboldt’s gorgeous scenery hunting for these beauts makes for a double dose of awe. Join a marble hunting group on Facebook, watch for clues, then participate in the fun by finding the marbles. Go to www.humboldtmarbleweekend.com for list of groups and how to get in on the hunt. —Kali Cozyris
How do you approach an event that bills itself as “very dumb?” Well, you gather your friends who are so inclined (you know the ones) for a silly, fun and “very dumb” night and act accordingly. We’re clearly talking about one event: The Mr. Humboldt Pageant. Back for its fifth year, the hilarity takes place Saturday, Feb. 10 at the Arcata Theatre Lounge with doors opening at 7 p.m. ($29). “We started the pageant as a spoof and made it male for so many reasons,” Mr Humboldt Pageant co-founder Johanna Nagan says. Turning the tables on traditional female beauty pageants that emphasize a cookie-cutter Barbie aesthetic, this one puts the mens on the menu and up on stage for good-natured revelry. And all for a great cause. The event raises money for local causes such as last year’s recipient, Pacific Union School. This year there are nine contestants of varying ages and backgrounds vying to be top dog, putting brains and brawn into four segments: Question and Answer, Beachwear, Talent and Formal Wear. “Each contestant has an alter ego they use throughout the night to tie in their theme. Mr. Rabbit and Mr. Science are a couple that will be at this year’s pageant.” Nagan says. The contestants are judged (not too harshly) on creativity, humor and their “Humboldtness” and those who don’t make the cut are ceremoniously eliminated at the end of each segment. Get your tickets now because, like a dude competing for a crown and a sash, they sell out quickly. Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets, The Works, Blondies Food & Drink and Arcata Liquors. The event is 18 and up because, at least ostensibly, we’re all adults here. —Kali Cozyris

Me skating past your bullshit memo. I, Tonya
Love Makes Fools of Us All I, Tonya and Call Me by Your Name By John J. Bennett
I, TONYA. In aging and being slowly, reluctantly drawn into what someone decided to call adulthood, I have developed what I consider a cagey defense that some might consider paranoia regarding those most dangerous among us: the Dumbass and the Devious. Dumbass, devious people, in my experience, possess what I would call a gift for turning their often clinically insignificant intellect toward the fulfillment of their own villainous ends (the Office of the President of the United States being one example). An innate lack of curiosity, usually twinned with an absence of empathy, allows formidable focus — a dogged, singular drive toward their own often ill-defined and harmful goal. Their success rate is deeply troubling. I, Tonya, written by Steven Rogers and directed by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl, 2007; Million Dollar Arm, 2014), is populated largely by the Dumbass and the Devious, and examines the shambolic, near-accidental nature of their “success” in harming others and undoing their decades of hard work. (It was, of course, also one of the more talked
about releases of last year, but not much to be done about that.) Told in kinetic flashback and framed by reenacted interview footage with Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie) and her abusive ex-husband Jeff Gillooly (Sebastian Stan), the movie describes Harding’s gradual ascent, from hardscrabble beginnings — thanks to the ministrations of her drunken, spiteful mother LaVona Golden (Allison Janney) — to the upper echelon of competitive figure skating. Her success is tempered by the fact that she can’t seem to stay away from Gillooly, whose presence in her life and association with the incalculably delusional Shawn (Paul Walter Hauser) eventually lead to her professional undoing. Some not-unfair comparisons have been drawn between the style of I, Tonya and that of Goodfellas (1990): There are pop-rock songs on the soundtrack, tracking shots and scenes of domestic strife aplenty. The similarities are enough to make it occasionally difficult not to think of the earlier movie, but the aesthetic also fits Tonya’s perpetually dingy, seedy, autumnally lit Portland, Oregon milieu.

is a movie very much of the ’80s and early ’90s, and the feel of the time and place is palpable. Janney gives a stand-out performance, with Stan and Hauser doing commendable work just behind her. Robbie, a consummately capable actor, goes a little big here, leaning into Harding’s sneer and perpetual blamelessness, but this may have more to do with the real-life figure than the performance. If any of us had abiding questions regarding the Harding/Kerrigan affair, I suppose this might answer some of them, but that hardly seems the point. I, Tonya works more toward the telling of a topical, painfully fractured version of the American dream, in which hard work and dedication can lead to great accomplishment and, in turn, be entirely undone by the machinations of the small and venal.

Relaxing to the sound of Kinsey scale numbers sliding. Call Me By Your Name
120M. BROADWAY, MILL CREEK, MINIPLEX.
CALL ME BY YOUR NAME, yet another of 2017’s most-acclaimed, finally arrived on our hidden shores, tells a languorous, minutely observed story of first love and loss, and I haven’t really made up my mind about it. In 1983, “somewhere in northern Italy,” (one of several indulgent tricks I assume screenwriter James Ivory retained from Andre Aciman’s novel), the family of antiquities professor Perlman (Michael Stuhlbarg) summers in a delightfully decaying villa in the lush countryside. The professor busies himself with indeterminate work regarding Greek sculpture, for which he requires the assistance of a research assistant, in this summer’s case the roguish Oliver (Armie Hammer). Polyglot Mrs. Perlman (Amira Casar) occupies herself mostly off-camera, leaving precocious, 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet) largely to his own devices. He reads, swims, transcribes classical music, has an on-again off-again sexual relationship with charming Parisian Marzia (Esther Garrel) and gradually falls in love with Oliver. The characters here, all impeccably played and constructed, live complex, full-blooded lives within a tactile and vividly imagined world; there doesn’t seem to be a detail out of place, nothing to distract from the notion that this is taking place outside a small town in Italy in 1983. And the burgeoning relationship between the leads, charged with excitement and secrecy and the shame of new discovery, is often painfully real. The whole movie is suffused with a torturous, long-Sunday-afternoon quality: the feeling that something is ending, something less pleasant beginning. But there is an element of indulgence here, from the meticulous details of the
props and sets and costumes, to the occasional fancifully novelistic runs of dialogue, that can interrupt the immersive atmosphere and remind us that we are watching actors on a screen. (Those actors, to a one, do exquisite work, don’t get me wrong.) And then, of course, there was the tinny voice of long-suffering adolescent me, who had difficulty mustering much sympathy for Elio who, while raw and real, seems more like a smug conqueror with the world at his feet than a heartbroken teen. But we all suffer in our own way. R.

PR180008 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of FLORENCE B. BUREK aka FLORENCE BLAKE BUREK A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by Petitioner BARBARA GRACE BUREK In the Superior Court of California, County of Humboldt. The petition for probate requests that BARBARA GRACE BUREK be appointed as personal representative to admin− ister the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the dece− dent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for exami− nation in the file kept by court. 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 February 15, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at the Superior Court of Cali− fornia, 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.

Legal Notices NOTICE OF INTENTION TO CIRCULATE INITIATIVE PETITION
Notice is hereby given by the persons whose names appear hereon of their intention to circulate the petition within the County of Humboldt for the purpose of moving forward the civil and human rights of the County’s most marginalized communities. A statement of the reasons of the proposed action as contemplated in the petition is as follows: The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement(ICE)is responsible for enforcing the civil immigration laws. ICE’s programs seek to enlist local law enforcement’s voluntary cooperation and assistance in its enforcement efforts. Collaboration between County law enforcement and federal immigration cause County expense, mistrust by local, immigrant communities, and fear of accessing services to which they are legally entitled. Humboldt County must declare itself a Sanctuary County and formalize the policy of non-collaboration that the County Sheriff already supports. ________________________________ ________________________________ Renee Saucedo Proponent 900 Hodgson St. Eureka, CA 95503 ________________________________ ________________________________ Eric Kirk Proponent 900 Hodgson St. Eureka, CA 95503 ________________________________ ________________________________ Courtney Blake Proponent 900 Hodgson St. Eureka, CA 95503 ________________________________ ________________________________
INITIATIVE MEASURE TO BE SUBMITTED DIRECTLY TO THE VOTERS
Proponents request that the County Counsel of Humboldt County prepare the following title and summary of the chief purposes and points of the proposed measure:
Humboldt County Sanctuary Law
TEXT OF MEASURE:
The people of the County of Humboldt ordain as follows: It is hereby affirmed that the County of Humboldt County is a sanctuary in its affirmation and support for SB 54 codified as Chapter 495 (An act to amend Sections 7282 and 7282.5 of, and to add Chapter 17.25 (commencing with Section 7284) to Division 7 of Title 1 of, the Government Code, and to repeal Section 11369 of the Health and Safety Code, relating to law enforcement), and additionally as stated in this Chapter.
PURPOSE OF THIS CHAPTER.
The purpose of this Chapter is to support Humboldt County’s mission of providing competent, effective, and responsive public safety services to the citizens of Humboldt County and visitors to our community, recognizing its responsibility to maintain order, while affording dignity and respect to all persons and maintaining the highest of professional and ethical standards. The provisions of this Chapter are designed to assure that local law enforcement and other agencies are free from improper interference in the conduct of their duties, that County resources are expended only in furtherance of the objectives for which they are allocated, that participation in the investigation and prosecution of criminal matters is in no way discouraged and that all residents of the County may confidently enjoy the benefits and privileges of life in Humboldt County. Additionally, the intent of this Chapter is to address requests for civil immigration detainers, voluntary notification of release of individuals, transmission of personal information, and civil immigration documents based solely on alleged violations of the civil provisions of immigration laws. Nothing in this Chapter shall be construed to apply to matters other than those relating to federal civil immigration detainers, notification of release of individuals, transmission of personal information, or civil immigration documents, based solely on alleged violations of the civil provisions of immigration laws. In all other respects, local law enforcement agencies may continue to collaborate with federal authorities to protect public safety.
The following findings are included in this ordinance to guide in interpretation for clarification in the implementation of the policies herein and to guide in the judicial determinations of compliance with it. The County of Humboldt (the “County”) is home to persons of diverse racial, ethnic, and national backgrounds, including a large immigrant population which is hereby recognized as integral and vital to the communities of the County. The County respects, upholds, and values equal protection and equal treatment for all of our residents, regardless of immigration status. Undocumented persons pay taxes and therefore are entitled to access county services, including but not limited to protection by the police and firefighters. Undocumented persons are entitled to
access all County facilities, including libraries, recreation centers, parks and senior centers. Undocumented persons may choose not to exercise these rights because of a concern that County officials will cooperate with federal authorities in the investigation of immigration status. It is important that the Board of Supervisors clarify the County’s policy regarding inquiries into and actions based on a person’s immigration status. Fostering a relationship of trust, respect, and open communication between County employees and County residents is essential to the County’s core mission of ensuring public health, safety, and welfare, and serving the needs of everyone in the community, including immigrants. The purpose of this Chapter is to foster respect and trust between law enforcement, County agencies and personnel, and residents, to protect limited local resources, to encourage cooperation between residents and County officials, including especially law enforcement and public health officers and employees, and to ensure community security, and due process for all. The United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) is responsible for enforcing the civil immigration laws. ICE’s programs seek to enlist local law enforcement’s voluntary cooperation and assistance in its enforcement efforts. In its descriptions ICE has held and continues to hold the position that all requests under their programs are for voluntary action and that any request is not an authorization to detain persons at the expense of the federal government. These policies amount to what many critics have referred to as “unfunded mandates” demanding of local jurisdictions that they not only participate in ICE actions, but dedicate money and resources to such ends. The federal government should not shift the financial burden of federal civil immigration enforcement, including personnel time and costs relating to notification and detention, onto local law enforcement by requesting that local law enforcement agencies continue detaining persons based on non-mandatory civil immigration detainers or cooperating and assisting with requests to notify ICE that a person will be released from local custody. It is not a wise and effective use of valuable County resources. Given that civil immigration detainers are issued by immigration officers without judicial oversight, and the regulation authorizing civil immigration detainers provides no minimum standard of proof for their issuance, there are serious questions as to their constitutionality. Unlike criminal warrants, which must be supported by probable cause and issued by a neutral magistrate, there are no such requirements for the issuance of a civil immigration detainer. Several federal courts have ruled that because civil immigration detainers and other ICE “Notice of Action” documents are issued without probable cause of criminal conduct, they do not meet the Fourth Amendment requirements for state or local law enforcement officials to arrest and hold an individual in custody. (Miranda-Olivares v. Clackamas Co., No. 3:12-cv-02317-ST *17 (D.Or. April 11, 2014) (finding that detention pursuant to an immigration detainer is a seizure that must comport with the Fourth Amendment). See also Morales v. Chadbourne, 996 F. Supp. 2d 19, 29 (D.R.I 2014); Villars v. Kubiatowski, No. 12-cv-4586 *10-12 (N.D. Ill. filed May 5, 2014).) According to Section 287.7 of Title 8 of the Code of Federal Regulations, the County is not reimbursed by the federal government for the costs associated with civil immigration detainers alone. The full cost of responding to a civil immigration detainer can include, but is not limited to, extended detention time, the administrative costs of tracking and responding to detainers, and the legal liability for erroneously holding an individual who is not subject to a civil immigration detainer. Compliance with civil immigration detainers and involvement in civil immigration enforcement diverts limited local resources from programs that are beneficial to the County. The County seeks to protect public safety, which is founded on trust and cooperation of community residents and local law enforcement. However, civil immigration detainers and notifications regarding release undermine community trust of law enforcement by instilling fear in immigrant communities of coming forward to report crimes and cooperate with local law enforcement agencies. A 2013 study by the University of Illinois, entitled “Insecure Communities: Latino Perceptions of Police Involvement in Immigration Enforcement,” found that at least 40% of Latinos surveyed are less likely to provide information to police because they fear exposing themselves, family, or friends to a risk of deportation. Indeed, civil immigration detainers have resulted in the transfer of victims of crime, including domestic violence victims, to ICE. The County has enacted numerous laws and policies to strengthen communities and to build trust between communities and local law enforcement. Local cooperation and assistance with civil immigration enforcement would undermine community policing strategies. ICE has used and continues to use forms which request notification from local jails about an individual’s release date prior to his or her release from local custody. As with civil immigration detainers, these notification requests are issued by immigration officers without judicial oversight, thus raising questions about local law enforcement’s liability for constitutional violations if any person is over detained when immigration agents are unable to be present at the time of the person’s release from local custody. ICE will continue to issue civil immigration detainer requests where local law enforcement officials are willing to respond to the requests, and in instances of “special circumstances,” a term that has yet to be defined by DHS. Despite federal courts finding civil immigration detainers do not meet Fourth Amendment requirements, local jurisdictions are often unable to confirm whether or not a detention request is supported by probable cause or has been reviewed by a neutral magistrate. The increase in information-sharing between local law enforcement and immi-

gration officials around the country raises serious concerns about privacy rights. Across the country, including in the California Central Valley, there has been an increase of ICE agents stationed in jails, who often have unrestricted access to jail databases, booking logs, and other documents that contain personal information of all jail inmates. The County has an interest in ensuring that confidential information collected in the course of carrying out its municipal functions, including but not limited to public health programs and criminal investigations, is not used for unintended purposes that could hamper collection of information vital to those functions. To carry out public health programs, the County must be able to reliably collect confidential information from all residents. To solve crimes and protect the public, local law enforcement depends on the cooperation of all County residents. Information gathering and cooperation may be jeopardized if release of personal information results in a person being taken into immigration custody. The impact of ICE policies and local cooperation with them is against the interests of the health and safety of every County resident and its many visitors. According to a recent study, seventy percent of undocumented immigrants and forty percent of Latinos are less likely to report crime to the police because they feared that police would enforce immigration laws. (Nik Theodore, Insecure Communities: Latino Perceptions of Police Involvement in Immigration Enforcement, University of Illinois at Chicago, May 2013.) Furthermore, individuals who perpetrate domestic violence, trafficking and other forms of violence against immigrants often instill fear of law enforcement to control their victims. (Leslye Orloff & Olivia Garcia, Dynamics of Domestic Violence Experienced by Immigrant Victims, National Immigrant Women’s Advocacy Project,2013). And since undocumented immigrants commonly live in households where at least one member has legal status, U.S. citizens and lawful residents also fear that contacting the police will result in the arrest of a family member. ICE agents are not police officers. They do not receive the same amount of training and they are not trained in criminal investigations such that local law enforcement is likely to benefit from any joint operations. According to a report issued by the International Association of Chiefs of Police: State and local law enforcement should not be involved in the enforcement of civil immigration laws since such involvement would likely have a chilling effect on both legal and illegal aliens reporting criminal activity or assisting police in criminal investigations. (“Enforcing Immigration Law: The Role of State, Tribal and Local Law Enforcement”). In short, cooperation between local agencies and federal immigration enforcement with regard to the latter is detrimental to the health and safety of all residents. Keeping local law enforcement out of the deportation business not only allows community members to cooperate with local law enforcement, it also benefits the community at large in other ways. The Immigration Legal Resource Center, through a Freedom of Information Act request, obtained ICE data and contributed to a report on how sanctuary counties perform across a range of social and economic indicators when compared to non-sanctuary counties. Among the main findings: On average, 35.5% fewer crimes are committed per 10,000 people in sanctuary counties compared to non-sanctuary counties. Median household annual income is, on average, $4,353 higher in sanctuary counties compared to non-sanctuary counties. The poverty rate is 2.3 percent lower, on average, in sanctuary counties compared to non-sanctuary counties. Unemployment is, on average, 1.1 percent lower in sanctuary counties compared to non-sanctuary counties. While the results hold true across sanctuary jurisdictions, the sanctuary counties with the smallest populations see the most pronounced effects. By keeping out of federal immigration enforcement, sanctuary counties are keeping families together—and when households remain intact and individuals can continue contributing, thus strengthening local economies and lowering crime. (Tom K. Wong, Center for American Progress, The Effects of Sanctuary Policies on Crime and the Economy). Sanctuary laws do not prevent undocumented immigrants from being prosecuted for criminal activity, and state and federal laws address the situation of serious, criminal offenders. The California Trust Act and SB 54, while prohibiting ICE holds on jail inmates who are otherwise eligible for release, also requires that those charged or convicted with serious and violent felonies be held for ICE agents. Crimes added to the list that expose immigrants to deportation include child abuse, gang-related crimes, drug trafficking, weapon sales, using children to sell drugs and aggravated federal felonies. (California Trust Act, 2014). Additionally, the same fears herein can deter individuals and families for seeking medical treatment, which can have serious health and safety impacts on everyone residing in the County. In summary, any County involvement in partnership with ICE through any Joint Law Enforcement Task Force or other arrangement is in contradiction with the values of the County of Humboldt and against its material interests.

RESTRICTIONS ON LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS.
In addition to the limitations set forth by the laws of the State of California, including but not limited to the above-described laws currently described in summary as “SB 54” the following restrictions shall apply. (a) No enforcement official shall detain an individual on the basis of a civil immigration detainer. (b) No agency shall participate in a Joint Law Enforcement Task Force which includes ICE, or for which a purpose is enforcement of federal immigration laws. (c) Law enforcement officials shall not arrest or detain an individual, or provide any individual’s personal information to a federal immigration officer, on the basis of an administrative warrant, prior deportation order, or other civil immigration document based solely on alleged violations of the civil provisions of immigration laws. (d) Where federal law, state law, or court orders or decisions require that law enforcement arrest and detain immigrants for reasons pertaining to their immigration status (as opposed to the committing of violent crimes as defined herein) that the following protocols shall be followed: No arrests shall be made at the arrestee’s home from 12:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. No arrests shall be made at a courthouse or other government building based upon the timing of a court hearing or appointment with government representative No arrests shall be made near a school and every reasonable precaution shall be made to avoid arrests in the presence of the arrestee’s children.

(e) In the event that an agency is required to act on a warrant, subpoena, or other order which does not involve and arrest or detention, but which merely requires the sharing of personal information and/or release dates, the individual named in the warrant or subpoena shall be notified in writing immediately upon
receipt by the agency. (f) Except as shall be required for booking upon arrest upon suspicion of criminal activity not pertaining to immigration status, no individual shall be required to submit to a fingerprint check of any sort unless there is an outstanding warrant on the individual.

(e) No county employee shall assist, directly or indirectly, in the detention of any person solely based on a person’s suspected immigration status unless required by federal law, state law, or court order or decision.
WELFARE OF CHILDREN OF DEPORTED PARENTS
Findings: According to a study conducted by the Migration Policy Institute approximately 5 million children under 18 have at least one parent who is an undocumented immigrant. Of these children, 79 percent are American citizens. In the second half of 2015, ICE removed 15,422 parents who said they have at least one U.S.-born child, according to ICE data. Research has shown that separation from parents can generate or exacerbate child mental health problems such as depressive or anxiety disorder and can impact a child’s development and education. There is no uniform national policy with regard to the status of children who are separated from one or both parents due to deportation. In some instances the involved government agencies have assisted families in reunifying. In others children have been placed into Foster care and in some cases agencies have taken legal action to oppose reunification or placement with guardians of the parents’ choice. The lack of clear policy guidelines or criteria for specific action (or inaction) has led to inconsistent actions and policies at the discretion of agents charged with securing the best interests of the children. Policy: It shall be the policy of all agencies acting under County jurisdiction that in the absence of evidence of abuse, neglect, or other physical or emotional danger to the child due to parental conduct the policy shall be to assist the families according to the wishes of the parents as federal and state law allow and to the extent resources are available. Guardians appointed by parents through formal process or power of attorney shall be recognized and respected, and guardianship as intended by the parents shall not be opposed on the basis of residential or citizenship status. In the event that an agency shall make the determination that appointed guardianship and/or parental reunification is not in the best interests of the child, the determination shall be made in writing which shall be mailed to the parents and appointed guardians if an address can be ascertained, and that such written determination shall be mailed at least 15 days prior to any legal action unless the agency determines that the child is in immediate danger.
PERMITTED ACTIVITIES OF ALL AGENCIES
Nothing in this chapter shall prohibit: (a) Any County employee from discussing a person’s immigration status as part of a service request from that person; (b) Any County employee from obeying any lawful order issued with all of the protections of the United States Constitution, including but not limited to probable cause and due process; (c) Any County employee from taking any action to protect a person or respond to an emergency; or (d) Any County police officer from investigating or assisting with any investigation of criminal activity other than violation of the immigration laws.
By no later than July 1, 2019, the Sheriff and Juvenile Probation Officer shall each provide to the Board of Supervisors a written report stating the number of detentions that were solely based on civil immigration detainers (if any) during the first six months following the effective date of this Chapter, and detailing the rationale behind each of those civil immigration detainers. Thereafter, the Sheriff and Juvenile Probation Officer shall each submit a written report to the Board of Supervisors and the Mayor, by January 1st and July 1st of each year, addressing the following issues for the time period covered by the report: (a) a description of all communications received from the Federal agency charged with enforcement of the Federal immigration law, including but not limited to the number of civil immigration detainers, notification requests, or other types of communications. (b) a description of any communications the Department made to the Federal agency charged with enforcement of the Federal immigration law, including but not limited to any Department’s responses to inquires as described herein.

To this end, the provisions of this ordinance, and each of them, are severable. Furthermore, should any provision herein place federal funding for County services at risk due to an act of federal or State of California legislature, a Court order, ruling, or decision, or a standing federal executive order, said provision shall be deemed invalid until such law, order, ruling, or decision remains in effect and so long as it is upheld by the state or federal Courts. Should the issue arise, documentation of the federal or state action or imperative which is brought to the attention of the Board of Supervisors shall be presented to County Counsel for evaluation and recommendation. The office of County Counsel shall immediately contact the authorities or origin or their legal representation for clarification as to which provisions herein place the County in jeopardy of the loss of federal or state funding for any of its programs, and shall request written direction to address the funding risk. The Board of Supervisors shall then receive the documentation and recommendations of County Counsel and act in the best interests of the County balancing the interests addressed by this Chapter with the conflicting interests. Any such decision to nullify or limit this Chapter shall be revoked upon information that the law, order, or ruling has been reverse, overturned, repealed, or otherwise rendered legally moot.

M. Sax’s Brass Clarinet By Barry Evans
dolphe Sax, were he alive today at age 203, probably wouldn’t be surprised that Macklemore’s 2012 hip hop hit “Thrift Shop” featured the saxophone because he designed it for versatility. By combining the agility of woodwind with the projection of brass, Sax created an instrument that is at home in virtually every musical genre. With a single reed mouthpiece, the saxophone is officially a woodwind instrument, even though it’s made of brass. In fact, in its soprano form, the sax looks like a brass clarinet (see photo). Structurally, the sax is a thin, brass, conical tube, flared at the end, with about 20 tone holes covered by keys that the player opens or closes (some holes are open by default, some closed). In the alto, tenor and baritone versions, the tube is bent into the traditional folded U, while the soprano sax is usually straight. The soprano sax is what drew me to the instrument in the first place — my 10-year-old self, transfixed by Sidney Bechet’s “Summertime” on my parents’ wind-up gramophone in all the high fidelity of a 10-inch shellac record. My early flirtation with jazz was soon swept away by Bill Haley, Elvis, Fats Domino and Jerry Lee Lewis. Rock ‘n’ roll was my thing in those awesome (and awful) pubescent years and rock bands had plenty of use for the sax — most combos included one or two of them to help pump out that insistent 4/4 beat. Somewhere in late ’50s, though, Paul Desmond wrote “Take Five” for the alto sax and it became the biggest-selling jazz single of all time. I loved it and was at the same time vaguely aware that someone called John Coltrane played a mean tenor sax on his Giant Steps LP. The sax kept popping up in popular culture, too: Henry Mancini’s chromatic Pink Panther sax
theme from 1963; a year later, Stan Getz’s “Girl from Ipanema” again showed the sax’s versatility as it embraced the bossa nova. The ’70s brought us Bobby Key’s tenor sax solos on such Stones’ hits as “Brown Sugar,” Bob Seger’s opening alto wail on “Turn the Page” and Clarence Clemons on Springsteen’s Born to Run album. Saxophones are found just about everywhere there’s music: in the classical repertoire (Ravel’s Bolero, Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition), military bands (many of Sousa’s marches), William Lovelock’s chamber music, bebop (pioneered in 1939 by jazz sax pioneer Coleman Hawkins in “Body and Soul”), Lester Young’s “cool” jazz and, of course, in rock, pop and rap. Adolphe Sax, from Dinant and later Brussels, Belgium, was looking to fill the gap between woodwind and brass instruments. Before inventing the saxophone, he was already experimenting with a precursor of the tuba (the last brass instrument to join the orchestra) and the euphonium (the bass “saxhorn”). Both his parents were instrument designers — they were responsible for improvements to the French horn that have lasted to the present time. Adolphe learned to play the clarinet early on, experimenting with a design for a bass clarinet that would have won the gold prize in the Brussels Industrial Exhibition — except the judges said he was too young. In 1842, he moved to Paris, where, four years later, he patented his saxophone designs: seven pairs of them in different sizes and tonal ranges. Later, a tangle of lawsuits over his patents led to repeated bankruptcies and he died penniless in Paris in 1894, an unworthy ending for the man who gave us the magic of the sax. ● Barry Evans (barryevans9@yahoo. com) plans on being reincarnated as a tenor sax virtuoso.
