Too Many Questions By Thadeus Greenson firstname.lastname@example.org
his is the worst kind of settlement. Don’t get us wrong, we understand the motivations behind it — the need for a city to reduce its liability exposure and protect public money, and the need for a family to move forward after the death of a loved one while making sure they’re not walking away from six years of litigation with nothing. The problem with the city of Fortuna’s agreement to pay $900,000 to settle a wrongful death case brought by the family of Jacob Newmaker — after he was shot dead on O Street in 2012 following a violent confrontation with officers — is that it leaves too many questions unanswered. And these are important questions, like whether the county’s multi-agency team led witnesses toward a desired outcome and whether the officers involved spoke honestly about the incident that took the life of a 26 year old. Most troubling are questions about the county’s Critical Incident Response Team, which is designed to act as a multi-agency check on local law enforcement in deadly force cases. In Newmaker’s case, the appellate court raised questions about whether then District Attorney Chief Investigator Mike Hislop “suggested” a version of events to officers in the case that would be more palatable and better align with evidence collected by investigators. And reading through the transcript excerpts included with the court’s ruling, it certainly appears he might have. That — coupled with the fact that then Humboldt County District Attorney Paul Gallegos’ five-page letter clearing the involved officers of any criminal wrongdoing notes an autopsy found Newmaker had high levels of methamphetamine in his system but neglects to mention that the same autopsy found the two bullets that killed him entered at a trajectory inconsistent with both the story officers first relayed to investigators and the one suggested to them by Hislop — is beyond troubling. To some it will no doubt reinforce the idea that these kinds of shooting investigations are “rubber stamp” affairs designed to clear the involved officers, as Dale Galipo, the attorney for Newmaker’s family, alleges. The broader secondary tragedy of this
settlement — beyond the sobering fact that it stems from a young man in the midst of a mental health crisis who was shot dead — is that it allows no public vetting of the facts of the case. It leaves an incomplete public record of the incident, and one rife with questions. It doesn’t allow a jury — representatives of the citizenry of California — to sift through the complete transcript of officers’ interviews with Hislop and compare it to their statements under oath during trial. It doesn’t allow them to watch video footage of the shooting to see if Newmaker had a baton in his hands and was swinging it at an officer’s head, as the officers allege, or if he was on the ground when shot in the back, as the autopsy results seem to suggest. So we’re all left to wonder and, likely, fall back on our own preconceived notions of police officers and deadly force events. Police officers are forced daily to make split-second decisions, often with grave consequences. Sometimes those consequences are fatal to the parties involved but the men and women policing our streets have the right to do what’s necessary to make sure they and their colleagues make it home safe at the end of the shift. And we the public have no reasonable expectation that they be perfect every time — officers, after all, are fallible humans like the rest of us. But we do have every right to expect that after officers takes someone’s life they be honest and transparent about what happened, and that the ensuing investigation be a fact finding mission with one target: the truth. This case and this settlement bring those expectations into question and that’s beyond troubling. We urge the city of Fortuna to release the video footage of the shooting, along with transcripts of depositions and interviews with the involved officers, to restore some of the trust this case has chipped away from the fragile balance between police and those they are sworn to protect. l Thadeus Greenson is the Journal’s news editor.

A Schooling on the Second Amendment Editor: Regarding the spate of opinions on the relationship of the Second Amendment, gun control and a ban on assault-style weaponry (“Guns Don’t Kill People, Toxic Masculinity Does,” March 1 and “Ending Gun Violence Takes a Different Kind of Bravery,” Feb. 22), it is worth citing J. Alito’s opinion from the recent U.S. Supreme Court case, McDonald v. Chicago. In the majority opinion affirming U.S. citizens’ right to bear arms, the jurists clearly acknowledged that Congress may limit the types of guns that can be owned and the people who can own them: “…state and local experimentation with reasonable firearms regulations will continue under the Second Amendment.” “It is important to keep in mind that
Heller, while striking down a law that prohibited the possession of handguns in the home, recognized that the right to keep and bear arms is not “a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.” “We made it clear in Heller that our holding did not cast doubt on such longstanding regulatory measures as ‘prohibitions on the possession of firearms by fel-
ons and the mentally ill,’ ‘laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.’” The issue of an assault weaponry ban has nothing to do with either hunting, for which they serve no reasonable or humane purpose, or Second Amendment rights. It has everything to do with the lawful limitation of the means to do cat-
astrophic harm to groups of people, and not just in schools, in short order. Presciently, and ironically, the Supreme Court’s ruling turned largely on the historical deprivation of freed black people, post Civil War, of the means to protect themselves, primarily in southern states, from marauding white thugs bent on retaining white privilege.

Fortuna Settles Police Shooting Lawsuit The city pays $900K to avoid a trial hinging on officer credibility By Thadeus Greenson firstname.lastname@example.org
he city of Fortuna has agreed to pay $900,000 to settle a federal wrongful death lawsuit brought by the family of a man shot dead by police in 2012 after an appellate ruling brought the credibility of the involved officers into serious question. Jacob Newmaker, 26, was shot and killed by then Fortuna Police officer Maxwell Soeth shortly after 6 a.m. on March 16, 2012, during an altercation. Newmaker’s parents filed the federal civil rights lawsuit about six months later, alleging officers violated their son’s civil rights and used excessive force. Neither the city nor Soeth admitted liability or fault in the settlement. The vast majority of the settlement will be paid by the Redwood Empire Municipal Insurance Fund (REMIF), the joint powers authority risk pool that essentially acts as the city’s insurer, though the city will have to pay a relatively small deductible, according to City Manager Mark Wheetley. Attorneys on both sides of the case said the settlement — reached just weeks before the case was scheduled for trial — was a matter of pragmatics. “From our perspective,” said Dale Galipo, who represented the family, “it was a difficult decision because we believed strongly in the case and thought we would prevail at trial. But one never knows for sure … and we could have won and the jury could have awarded $300,000. When the offer is minimal, the decision is easier. But can you imagine passing up $900,000, going to trial and losing? That would not feel very good.” Dale Allen, of the San Francisco firm Allen, Glaessner, Hazelwood and Werth, who defended the city in the case along with Eureka attorney Nancy Delaney, said the settlement became a “business decision” for the city and REMIF. After nearly six years of litigation, Allen said there was the risk that any verdict in the plaintiffs’ favor could have resulted in $2 million to $3 million in attorney’s fees alone. The settlement represents an unlikely end for a case that was dismissed by a district court judge in 2013. Galipo appealed that ruling, and a panel of judges overruled

the district court’s decision, raising questions about the credibility of the officers involved and the multi-agency Critical Incident Response Team’s investigation of the shooting. “The panel determined that the version of events offered by Officer Soeth and Sgt. (Charles) Ellebrecht to the district court was materially contradicted by evidence in the record,” read the opinion authored by Judge William Fletcher, which goes on to detail how the officers’ statements changed during the investigation and how even their final version isn’t supported by video of the incident and an autopsy report. The shooting occurred after Soeth and Ellebrecht were dispatched to a report of an unknown male suspect in the Angel Heights area who had been banging on a residence’s door and windows at around 6 a.m. Soeth located Newmaker, who allegedly had a potentially toxic level of methamphetamine in his system, riding a bicycle a couple of miles away and reported that, upon spotting him, Newmaker dropped two steak knives and began peddling away. Soeth turned on his patrol car’s lights and attempted to get Newmaker to stop, but Newmaker allegedly fled, sparking a pursuit. Newmaker allegedly didn’t comply with Soeth’s orders and a struggle ensued, in which Soeth stunned Newmaker with his Taser and then fired it at the suspect, hitting him in the chest and knocking him to the ground, where Newmaker reportedly bit through the Taser’s electrical leads. Around this time, Ellebrecht arrived at the scene. As Newmaker tried to get up from the ground, Soeth hit him with a collapsible baton and the two officers tried to get the 26 year old handcuffed. But Newmaker allegedly continued resisting and, according to Soeth, was able to grab his baton and wrestle it away, prompting Ellebrecht to pepper spray Newmaker before the altercation turned deadly. The day after the shooting, Soeth and Ellebrecht were interviewed by then Humboldt County District Attorney Chief Continued on page 8 »

News Continued from page 6
Investigator Mike Hislop as a part of the county’s multi-agency investigation into the shooting. Prior to the interview, both officers were allowed to watch footage of the shooting captured by a dash-mounted camera in Ellebrecht’s patrol car. According to the appellate ruling, Soeth first offered this explanation of what happened: “He jerks the batons (sic) out of my hand. I yell, ‘He’s got my baton.’ I create some distance between me and him, draw my weapon, my firearm. He is — he has the baton in both hands and he’s — he’s just swinging it back and forth towards Charles. He takes a step or two towards Charles. I’m ordering him to drop it. … Giving him orders to comply. I shoot him twice. Subject drops.” Soeth added that Newmaker was “aggressively swinging” the baton at Ellebrecht at about “head height” when he shot him. Later in the interview, Hislop circles back and seems to suggest a different chain of events. “OK,” Hislop starts, according to a transcript excerpt in the appellate ruling. “So you shot two shots and — let’s go back to that real quick. You shot two shots. … He’s doing this big overt swing towards Sgt. Ellebrecht. You shoot him. And then he falls down and he’s getting back up again. And then you shoot him again?” “After seeing the video, I — I believe that is what happened,” Soeth answers. “OK. Good,” Hislop says before bringing the interview to a close. Hislop’s interview with Ellebrecht followed a similar course. The sergeant first said he remembers Newmaker swinging the baton at him at head height and, as he was backing away from the suspect, he saw Soeth fire two shots, after which Newmaker fell to his knees. Hislop then asks about the timing of the second shot. “Like, it was pretty much back to back as much as I can remember,” Ellebrecht says, according to the transcript. “OK. Now if — if you referred back to the video if you can, so when he does the big lunge and then he gets shot and it looks like he way over extended and he fell,” Hislop says. “He,” Ellebrecht starts before Hislop cuts him off. “He fell and then again didn’t seem like it stopped him. He fell and then he started to get back up again,” Hislop says. “That, I think is — that might be when Soeth,” Ellebrecht responds. “Would it be possible that he shot once while he swung at you and then when he fell, he got back up and Soeth shot again?” “It’s possible,” the sergeant answers. But that’s apparently not what the video shows, at least according to the
8 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, March 8, 2018 • northcoastjournal.com
appellate judges who reviewed it and described it as “inconsistent” with the officers’ version of events. The appellate opinion notes that the video shows Soeth hitting Newmaker “about five times” with his baton (the officer reported hitting him twice), but the more troubling inconsistencies come after Ellebrecht and Soeth moved Newmaker from the sidewalk to the street behind a parked car that blocked much of the camera’s view. “What happens on the ground behind the parked car cannot be seen in the video,” the opinion states, adding that Soeth’s head appears briefly, rising “high enough behind the parked car that it can be seen” and that at one point, Ellebrecht stands and can be seen before “Newmaker comes into view.” It continues: “He rises behind the car and almost immediately twists and falls toward the right, onto the street. There is nothing clearly visible in his hands. After he has fallen, only his legs are visible on the video. The rest of his body is off the screen to the right … just after Newmaker has fallen to the street, Soeth appears to shoot.” The appellate opinion also notes that that the officers’ initial statements to investigators contradicted one another, with Soeth saying Newmaker “violently” swung the baton at Ellebrecht multiple times and Ellebrecht recalling only a single swing. A report by Roger Clark, a police procedures consultant hired by Galipo, offers a more chilling account of the video. “Officer Soeth is recorded as drawing his gun and pointing it at Mr. Newmaker (who at the time was simply laying unarmed and prostrate in the street),” Clark writes. “Mr. Newmaker was clearly unable to present any sort of credible threat. … Also, Mr. Newmaker had no weapon whatsoever in his hand. Yet, he was apparently shot in the back by officer Soeth at that time.” An autopsy performed on Newmaker March 20, 2012, by forensic pathologist Mark Super described injuries inconsistent with someone who was shot while standing upright and swinging a baton at head level. Specifically, Super described the trajectory of one wound as entering Newmaker’s lower left back just above his belt line and traveling upward in his body, perforating his left lung and coming to a stop in his left pectoral area. The other bullet, according to Super’s report, entered Newmaker’s lower right back at the beltline and traveled upward into his heart. According to Ronald O’Halloran, a forensic pathologist hired by Galipo, “the only reasonable ways for these bullet wound trajectories to occur … are for Mr. Newmaker to be leaning forward sharply at the time he was shot or for him to be
on the ground on his knees in a steeply forward-leaning posture or to be prone on the ground.” D.S. Cameron, a police use of force expert hired by the city, reviewed an “enhanced” version of the video and came away with a sharply different opinion of the incident. He writes that the video depicts Newmaker swinging the baton at Ellebrecht and consequently finds the shooting reasonable and justified. In a brief submitted to the appellate court, Delaney argues that it is “undisputable” that Newmaker had the baton in hand at the time of the shooting. She writes that a still photo pulled from the enhanced version of the dash cam video “depicts a shadow of an oblong object” in his hands, notes both officers’ testimony and that of a witness who heard officers shout “put the weapon down” before shots rang out. Ultimately, Delaney argued, the problem in the case is that neither the original video footage nor the enhanced version “accurately depict the event.” “First, the video does not include most of the relevant portions of the struggle because Newmaker’s attack with the baton occurs out of the view captured by the camera,” she writes. “Second, the undisputed evidence establishes that the quality of the video is unreliable. ... In addition to the fact that the camera did not capture the most significant portion of the incident, the video is compromised by the fact that the incident occurred at night, in low light conditions while it was raining. Further, the format in which the video was stored, i.e. MPEG, eliminated information through compression, such that images were distorted and either contained objects that were not present or removed objects that were present.” Delaney didn’t respond to a Journal call seeking comment but Allen said it’s important to remember the officers involved faced a dynamic, violent situation. “The officers were confronted with a decision they had to make in just a matter of seconds,” he said, adding that the settlement was reached to avoid “putting more public money at risk.” In a statement to the Times-Standard, Fortuna Police Chief Bill Dobberstein notes that the “facts and circumstances” of the case were “hotly disputed” and reiterates that the settlement is not an admission of fault. “The investigation concluded that officer Soeth acted appropriately in a tense and rapidly evolving situation and was forced to make a split-second decision with life or death consequences for Sgt. Ellebrecht and Mr. Newmaker, a tragedy Continued on page 10 »

in either case,” Dobberstein said in the statement. For his part, Galipo said he feels the case represents many of the worst aspects of how officer-involved shootings are handled, from Hislop’s “suggestive interviewing” to an incomplete investigation and a “rubber stamping” from the district attorney. “I think it’s a horrific shooting — I’ve thought that from the beginning and my clients had mixed feelings about settling,” Galipo said. “If a normal person had shot and killed another citizen under similar circumstances, they would be charged with murder and sitting in jail with $1 million bail.” Soeth is now employed by the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, where he’s currently working as a bailiff. Ellebrecht remains a sergeant with the Fortuna Police Department. The Journal has requested the city’s video footage of the shooting. l Thadeus Greenson is the news editor at the Journal.

Enough! By Peter Childs
y wife and I moved from the Los Angeles area to the hills of Northern California in 1971, 7 miles from the nearest paved road — far enough from any immediate help from law enforcement that the local police told us, “Make sure you’re right, and call us when he stops twitching.” I own five firearms. Each of them has a specific purpose, ranging from bears and deer to varmints and snakes (rattlers and small children don’t mix), to intruders, if necessary. The point I’d like to make here is that I’m fully aware that firearms have legitimate uses. Further, I understand that many people enjoy shooting them. I do not. I use my guns only when necessary. I don’t like the noise and I do not enjoy the taking of life from any living creature; I will do so if I have to, but with regret. So, I’m a gun owner and, to a degree, a gun advocate. But I draw the line, absolutely, at the presence of military assault rifles, which are weapons of mass destruction, plain and simple, in the hands of anyone but the military. (I don’t care for them in military hands either but that’s another matter). The argument that the individual has an innate (or Constitutional) right to own these weapons is nonsense; it’s like saying that I have the right to a personal nuke just because, for whatever twisted reason, I want one. It is not legitimate for me to own one of these weapons and I should not want to own one. We need to look deeply into the reasons why we do want to own one; we would benefit enormously if we could muster the courage and honesty to do this, because we would discover the powerlessness and fear that actually lie at the root of so much of our behavior. Then we could change and very much for the better; our so badly broken hearts could mend and we could create a very different world. But the barriers to change are as high as the wall Trump wants to build (and they serve the same purpose: to keep what we fear away). The National Rifle Association is in effect, as Michael Moore points out, a terrorist organization, as it relentlessly insists on the false right of the individual
to own weapons of mass destruction. The association is joined at the hip with its bought-and-paid-for politicians; together they are largely responsible for the unbelievable carnage that the American people wreak upon themselves every year. They are going to have a great deal to answer for at the Pearly Gates because the facts are clear: Nations that ban these weapons undeniably have vastly lower rates of gun violence than we do. As Emma Gonzalez so eloquently said through her tears, “He couldn’t have killed that many people with a knife!” The insistence of the NRA, its politicians and many (but not all, by any means) of their supporters that the Second Amendment must be misinterpreted to allow these weapons in virtually any hands that seek to grasp them is simply shameful. It must be recognized as such, called out and stopped. Those of us who can see this obvious truth should long ago have done what the Parkland students and (God bless them all) the other young people are doing now: “Call BS!” We must show these young people that we have their backs; that we agree that this has gone on much too long, that the misery and death that we have simply accepted is no longer acceptable and that we must now arise, link arms, fill the streets and do whatever is appropriate to put a stop to this madness. ● Peter Childs Peter Childs is a retired musician and activist, who has travelled across this country and abroad as a performer and studio musician and has served on several nonprofit boards of directors in different fields.

Quality Body Works – A New Chapter Quality Body Works, a staple in the Humboldt County collision repair business since 1978, welcomes Ross Creech as General Manager. Ross, son of current coowner, Dave Creech, returns to Humboldt County after a career as General Manager with Mission Linen in Central California. Ross joined Mission Linen after graduating college and managed over 80 Mission Linen employees in their Santa Maria, California facility. Even though Mission Linen is one of the largest linen and uniform processing facilities in the world, they are a family-based business. Ross stated this was one of the greatest draws to join Mission Linen and is excited to be back as part of his family’s business. Ross, becomes the third-generation linage of Quality Body Works owners and managers that began with his grandfather, Jim Creech in 1978. Current co-owners,
Dave and Skip Creech, both retiring in 2018, express both pride and confidence in Ross’ ability to carry on the Quality Body Works creed of “Saying what you do and doing what you say” as part of their business model based on the Golden Rule of treating people the way a person would treat themselves. Ross, a 2003 graduate of Eureka High School, received a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in 2007. Ross and his wife, Alexandra, are excited to be back in Ross Creech Humboldt County with their two children as they carry the torch of a successful local and family-owned business. Quality Body Works

Supes Approve Law Enforcement Raises
he Humboldt County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously, with Supervisors Rex Bohn and Virginia Bass absent, to approve raises for the county’s sheriff’s deputies, district attorney investigator and probation officers, bumping their pay 5 percent over the coming 18 months. The pay bumps will come with an estimated $1.2 million annual cost to the county general fund. The pay increases are a part of a memorandum of understanding negotiated between the bargaining unit and the county, which have been operating without an agreement in place for months. The new deal will be in effect until June 30, 2020, with 2.5 percent raises in July of 2018 and July of 2019, and a onetime payout of $1,200 to all employees in the bargaining unit. County staff recommended approving the agreement, saying it fit with the board’s stated goals of “supporting investment in county employees.” If the board had rejected the deal, it would have sent both sides back to the negotiating table. The deal will impact sheriff’s deputies (who currently make between $45,465 and $62,874 in annual base pay), district attorney’s office investigators ($49,241-$63,188), welfare investigators ($50,234-$73,753) and probation officers ($38,565-$49,487), according to the county’s salary schedule.

The sheriff’s office has notably struggled — as most local law enforcement agencies have — with the recruitment and retention of officers, and some argue that’s largely due to wages that don’t compete with those in other parts of the state. According to the employment website Indeed.com, the average police officer in California makes $64,876 in annual base salary. Meanwhile, the county’s seven-year financial forecast released earlier this year looks grim, with annual budget deficits expected to begin in the fiscal year 20202021 and ballooning to $20.3 million by 2024-2025, with the deficit largely due to increasing retirement and health insurance costs in the face of slow revenue growth, according to staff projections. In other matters, the board also approved raising the contract caps for the six firms processing cannabis planning applications by $300,000 apiece. Overwhelmed by the thousands of permit applications coming into the planning department from folks wanting to legitimize their growing operations or start new ones, the county planning department contracted with outside firms to help. The county put a cap of $300,000 on each contract — with the money coming from the permit application fees, not county coffers — and three of the firms are approaching

A Border Wall to Save Us All By Thadeus Greenson firstname.lastname@example.org

resident Donald Trump caught headlines earlier this month when he unexpectedly dropped into a White House summit on opioids and — in the midst of pledging to crack down on drug “pushers” — mused that some countries execute people convicted of drug offenses. It was a classic Trumpian throwaway line that drew applause from those in attendance at the summit, including Kellyanne Conway, the alternative-fact-touting pollster and communications specialist with no public health experience whom Trump inexplicably tapped to act as the administration’s opioid czar and lead the national campaign to reduce opioid abuse. And this came just weeks after Newsweek reported that Conway has sidelined the Office of National Drug Control Policy, the nation’s leading experts, from conversations and instead convened an “opioid cabinet” of political staff that is reportedly pushing a “just say no” campaign and echoing the president’s calls for a border wall. So the administration’s response to an epidemic that killed an average of 175 people a day in 2016 and has only gotten worse since is to tell people not to do drugs, throw more resources into the war on drugs and spend untold billions on what most agree is a political symbol that will do little to curb the flow of people or drugs into this country. What’s this all have to do with weed,
you ask? A lot more than you might think. First, there’s the example of the utter failure of marijuana prohibition, under which decades of “just say no” campaigns, mandatory minimum prison sentences and eradication efforts in the hills did absolutely nothing to curb Americans’ thirst for mind-altering substances and little to curb dealers’ ability to supply them. Then there’s the growing body of research that suggests marijuana can be a valuable harm reduction tool to curb the national opioid epidemic. The same week Trump was patting Conway on the back and throwing out casual applause lines, the Minnesota Department of Public Health released data analyzing the first five months of its medical cannabis program, which showed that of patients enrolled in the program who were taking opiate painkillers, 63 percent reduced or eliminated their opioid usage within six months of enrollment. The data is hardly surprising. In 2016, a study of Michigan’s medical cannabis program found “a 64 percent decrease in opioid use.” Then there’s a recent clinical trial published in Israel, where medical cannabis is federally permitted, which looked at a group of 1,200 cancer patients and found that nearly half were able to reduce or eliminate their use of opioid pain killers by substituting cannabis. There’s also the study published last

year in Drug and Alcohol Dependence, which analyzed administrative records of hospital discharges from 27 states, nine of which had legalized medical marijuana, from 1997 through 2014. The researchers found that hospitalizations related to opioid dependence or abuse dropped by almost 25 percent in medical marijuana states, which also recorded 13 percent fewer opioid overdoses. If those numbers held under a national framework, that could save some 23 lives a day — more than 8,300 lives a year. But that would take some semblance of real leadership on the issue from Congress — members of which received an average of $30,000 in campaign contributions from the pharmaceutical industry in 2016 — and Trump’s White House. So instead of studying what appears to be a promising harm reduction tool that could potentially stem the spread of addiction and save thousands of lives annually, our nation’s leaders are going to talk tough on crime, urge kids to “just say no” and push for a border wall. All these approaches will fail and, in the meantime, hundreds of people will continue to die every day. ● Thadeus Greenson is the news editor at the Journal.

A ‘perfect storm’ sends the North Coast’s marine ecosystem reeling By Kimberly Wear email@example.com
ynthia Catton’s voice catches a bit as she describes diving along the North Coast this summer to survey the region’s red abalone stock as part of annual state monitoring efforts. She had known the situation was bleak but that didn’t prepare her for what she would see. “At all of the sites we saw a huge amount of death,” the environmental scientist says. “We saw abalone dying and dead and being eaten by urchins, and we also saw a lot of empty shells. We saw, in most places, more dead shells and dying abalone then we saw live abalone.” Catton, a member of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s marine invertebrate management team, pauses a moment before continuing. “It was a pretty devastating year to be diver in the water and doing these surveys,” she says. “I don’t know how to express our reaction. It was just really devastating to see this level of impact to this population.” In just a few short years, the Northern California waters stretching from Sonoma to Southern Humboldt have undergone a dramatic transformation, with stretches stripped bare of their once varied marine life in a phenomenon known as “urchin barren.”
“We are seeing really huge numbers of purple urchins for over 100 miles of coastline pretty continuously, which is a really outrageous scale,” Catton says, noting that even a 1-mile expanse would have been considered significant in the past. Gone are lush underwater forests of bull kelp tendrils swaying in the ocean current that provided shelter for a wide array of fishes and other sea creatures, and also served as the primary food source on which abalones depended. Now the abalone are starving, simply unable to compete with the voracious appetites of marauding armies of spiky purple sea urchins that, in some places, have even scoured the calcified pink algae from the region’s rocky reefs in a relentless march for food. They are, Catton says, “the goats of the sea,” eating everything in their paths. Amid that backdrop, the North Coast’s abalone stock has plunged into a rapid decline. First, the mollusks stopped reproducing. Then starvation symptoms set in. The first signs surfaced in 2015 with divers reporting abalone falling off rocks after their strong muscle adherer — the

part called “the foot” that is so coveted by consumers — became too shrunken to hold on. Over the next two years, the scale of the famine would escalate. When Catton and a team headed out to beaches at the center of the fishery in 2017 to see what divers were bringing in, they found 25 percent of the 6,000 abalones observed were wasted with hunger. “Normally, we would see one. Not 1 percent. One,” she says. “It’s really, again, an unusual thing, a very unusual thing, and we saw this impact across all of the sites in Sonoma and Mendocino counties and Southern Humboldt.” The numbers from that summer dive were even starker: Ten sites in Mendocino and Sonoma counties showed abalone populations had declined by an average of 58 percent. That led to the state Fish and Game Commission’s unprecedented decision in December to shut down the entire 2018 recreational season with a one-year sunset date for another review. Many of those who addressed the commission — either via written comments or in person — were against the move while acknowledging the dire straits
of the abalone. They advocated instead for severe restrictions, including drastically reducing the allowed catch and increasing the size limit from 7 inches to 8 inches. Several expressed fears that a closure would forever lock away the last vestige of California’s once great abalone fishery, citing how four other species found farther south — blacks, greens, pinks and whites — have been off limits for decades, both commercially and recreationally, but still haven’t rebounded. “We don’t have a good track record of closures and reopening,” Wayne Kotow, president of the group Coastal Conservation Alliance, told commissioners during the meeting. “I understand … wanting to close because the population is that low. It is scary. I see the numbers. I get it. But my problem is we go through this process and we never get to open them back up.” He also raised the fiscal downside, especially for areas like Fort Bragg, which relies heavily on out-of-town divers coming to its shores, giving a boost to local businesses in the isolated Mendocino County town. The total annual economic impact to coastal communities in the fishery’s epicenter is estimated to be around $26

“Complicating matters is bull kelp can be extremely sensitive to ocean temperatures and abalones are slow growing,” says Brian Tissot, a professor and director of Humboldt State University’s Marine Lab located in Trinidad. The urchin surge, he says, “added insult to injury.” Because “nutrients and temperatures go hand and hand,” Tissot says the best hopes for the kelp — and in turn the abalone — is a return to the region’s traditionally cooler water conditions. Meanwhile, the hope is the 2018 fishery closure will give the abalone some time to stabilize. One of the reasons that’s so important is because of how the sea snail tucked into an ornate shell reproduces — basically by sending sperm and eggs out into the water. For the two to successfully meet, there needs to be enough abalone near each other. If the population gets too small, it simply can’t rebound, which is what has been occurring down south with other varieties of abalone. “We are trying to avoid exacerbating a really bad problem to give the fishery a chance to slow down its decline while conditions remain so poor,” Catton says. A similar story holds true for bull kelp

and scientists see preserving what pockets are left as paramount to bringing back the waxy canopies that once blanketed the coastline. “There’s the potential of a really small patch to produce spores to cover a region of some sort,” Catton says. “If we can maintain or enhance a network of kelp patches where spores are being produced to supply spores for the surrounding area that might be something we can tackle and, if we can concentrate that effort in a targeted way, then we’ll have the best chance of success rather trying to have a more diffused effort across the entire coastline.” But unlike its southern cousin the giant kelp, bull kelp grows as a single stalk and dies off each year — basically an annual marine plant rather than a perennial — which makes it more vulnerable to hungry urchin mobs that can hinder its ability to reestablish new growth. To help the kelp along, Catton is partnering with urchin divers and community groups to set up pilot projects near the urchin processing plants in Fort Bragg’s Noyo Harbor to target the spiky critters as a possible stop gap measure. But with the main culprit being a series of environmental factors, it’s still unclear

how things will play out. The hope is that conditions will begin to normalize and the ecosystems off the coast can begin to rebuild. “There’s a lot more research that needs to be done to understand how dire is this situation,” Catton says, “and once we know that, we can figure out how we can help it along a little bit.” Catton says this wave of an unprecedent conditions “fits very well with our expectation of climate change,” with wide-reaching rather than regionalized events — like the sea star wasting disease that stretched along the entire Western coastline — as well as familiar phenomenon like El Niño but in more frequent and extreme forms. There’s also the emergence of strange, never-before-seen behaviors, like the way abalone in stricken areas are crowding into the shallows in a desperate bid for food, sometimes stacking themselves on top of each other rather than dispersing at a variety of depths.
That alone raises their vulnerability because having enough numbers at depths beyond 25 feet — out of the range of free-divers — gives abalone a certain lifeline by having a population removed from fishing pressure. “We don’t really know what to expect as we move into new oceanic conditions,” Catton says. Tissot agrees. “If this is the new normal, we’re going to have a lot of long-term problems,” he says, noting the kelp off Trinidad hasn’t yet seen the same devastation as Shelter Cove and points south, but researchers are monitoring the situation. “Things are changing and these cold water organisms like abalone and rock fish and crab, there’s a potential these are things that might not be here in the future.” l Kimberly Wear is the assistant editor at the Journal.

mpanadas are a staple for many Latinos. Whether sweet or savory, baked or fried, the little hand pies are a treat. When I was growing up, my momma baked us sweet empanadas, and her empanadas de calabaza (pumpkin) were my favorite. As an adult, it’s the savory empanadas that lure me in: tender, flaky bread stuffed with scrumptious fillings like picadillo — seasoned ground beef with briny olives and golden raisins — or cheesy spinach with meaty mushrooms or even spicy chorizo and potato. They are mighty fine alone but gorgeous when served with a side of chimichurri dipping sauce (see my June 16, 2016 “Chimichurri in a Hurry”). If you bake, I recommend you put savory empanadas in your repertoire. The dough is basically a pie crust and super easy if you use a food processor. The fillings are versatile and really up to your imagination. The one caveat with making your own empanadas is that they do take a little time. Allow at least two hours the first time you make them. They aren’t difficult but there are many steps involved: making and refrigerating dough, preparing and cooling the fillings, assembly and baking. I usually make one batch of dough and two fillings. This dough makes empanadas that are more in line with Argentinian-style than the ones found in Mexican panaderías, or bakeries. Bonus: This dough recipe can be used for both savory and sweet empanadas. If your dough making skills stink, cheat by using prepared phyllo dough, or if you can find them, Goya makes prepared empanada discs.
Make sure the butter and water are chilled. When it comes to dividing dough, a digital food scale is handy but you can also eyeball it. To avoid unnecessarily
adding flour, roll out the dough between pieces of parchment paper or plastic wrap (a gallon-size bag cut along the side seams works splendidly). Makes 16 large or 24 small empanadas. Ingredients: 6 ounces unsalted butter (1½ sticks), cut into ½-inch pieces then chilled ½ to ¾ cup water, chilled 3 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 egg, whisked 1 tablespoon apple cider or distilled white vinegar 1 egg, whisked for eggwash To make the dough in a food processor: mix the flour and salt, then add the butter by pulsing the mixture a few minutes until the butter makes pea-size clumps. In a small bowl, whisk the egg, ½ cup water and vinegar together and slowly pulse the liquid into the flour mixture until a dough forms. (If the mixture is dry, add remaining ¼ cup water to help it come together; if it’s still dry, add additional water incrementally by the tablespoon.) Empty contents on the counter and gently form the dough into a ball. For a soft, flaky crust, do not knead or overwork it. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes or up to two days. To make the empanada dough by hand: Follow the instructions above but use a pastry cutter, two forks or your hands to mix the ingredients together. To assemble and bake the empanadas: Have your fillings prepared and cooled before beginning assembly. Remove the chilled dough from the refrigerator.

For large empanadas, divide the dough into 16 equal sections. Shape into balls, then roll out to 6½ -inch round discs about 1/8-inch thick. For small empanadas, divide dough into 24 rounds and roll out to 4½ inch discs. Place the rounds on ungreased baking sheets. Add filling in the center of each disc, making sure to keep edges clean (4 level tablespoons for large empanadas; 2 level tablespoons for small ones). Avoid overstuffing the dough so the seams and pastry don’t leak or break open. Dip your finger in water and run along the clean edge of the dough. Fold the dough over to cover the filling and make a half moon shape. Pinch the edges together and seal tightly by gently crimping them with a fork or braiding the edges. Brush tops with egg wash and bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 23 minutes until golden on top and bottom. Eat them warm or at room temperature.

The Long Goodbye
Haig Patigian’s McKinley and Erick Ragsdale’s small pleasures By Gabrielle Gopinath firstname.lastname@example.org
ow that the Arcata City Council has voted 4-1 to remove the statue of William McKinley from the Arcata Plaza, sculptor Haig Patigian’s larger than life bronze portrait will be coming down from the massive pedestal where it has held court since 1906 — eventually. The process of removal is slated to take many months. As we begin this long goodbye, let’s make the most of the time we have left with “President William McKinley,” doing the artist a solid by actually looking at the sculpture he cast in bronze. The figure of McKinley stands 8 1/2 feet tall. It is positioned atop a stone pedestal that is more than 10 feet high. The work is confidently executed and competently cast; Patigian’s McKinley appears grave and yet untroubled, secure in his conviction regarding the lasting significance of his achievement. Patigian does not seek to flatter his subject by rendering him approachable or “humanizing” him, as a contemporary might. (His flattery takes other forms.) The military erectness of the figure’s posture and the rigid tailoring of the clothes communicate stern rectitude; the neutral, unsmiling facial expression conveys a dignified reserve that, unfortunately for its subject, accords poorly with contemporary modes of self-presentation. The outstretched hand serves as double entendre: part paternal benevolence, part oratory flourish. The figure looms over the heads of its audience like a brontosaurus in a diorama, staring nobly off into the middle distance — relic of a time when the term “mansplaining” had yet to be crafted. In the 112 years that have passed since the statue’s installation, a lot about the circumstances that prompted its original placement have been forgotten. Even so, it is still possible to appreciate the fact that Patagian was a pro. His polished rendering makes it possible even now for us to get the gist: This man is in charge. He (and the institutions he represents) know and
want what’s best for us. How individual viewers feel about that proposition will likely influence their sentiments regarding this artwork’s impending departure from the civic center. The statue’s placement here in Arcata, somewhat whimsical from the get-go, does not appear to have been the result of any local enthusiasm for the nation’s 25th president. Nor was it sustained by any meaningful connection that the president maintained with this place by virtue of birth, business or personal affinity. (Ohio native McKinley came no closer than San Francisco.) If there was any public component to the process of placing the sculpture, its record has not been preserved. No, the statue’s arrival in Humboldt was a one-off, a windfall of sorts. It seems likely that it might not have happened at all were it not for two unrelated events. First, on Sept. 5, 1901, Polish-American anarchist Leon Czolgosz sprang to the front of a reception line at the Temple of Music in the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York and shot President William McKinley two times in the abdomen; the president would die nine days later. Second, on April 18, 1906, the Great Earthquake struck San Francisco and caused thousands of casualties, leveling most of the city and blitzing much of what was left with fire. Patigian’s foundry and studio burned, but his recently cast sculpture improbably survived this cataclysm. Arcata McKinley supporter George Zehnder, who commissioned the statue, presented it to the city in the earthquake’s aftermath as a memorial, along with its massive pedestal — footing the bill for the work’s purchase price, transportation by steamer to Eureka and installation. This is a strange moment in terms of our national relationship to monuments. The discourse surrounding public art has seldom been so intense. Rarely has it occupied such a prominent a position in the news. The very possibility of meaningful public art in a democratic society

requires possibility of consensus and the existence of clearly articulated, shared societal goals. At a moment when American politics and culture are increasingly dominated by tribalist, hyperbolically oppositionist attitudes, such consensus is increasingly difficult to conjure. Where that will leave Arcata, as it searches for the McKinley statue’s replacement, is anyone’s guess. These days, to view the sculpture on an average weekday morning is to see Patigian’s opus acquiring a whole new, unexpected layer of meaning. As dawn breaks over Humboldt Bay, the huge bronze man in the highly structured clothes of yesteryear is gradually surrounded by the collection of unhoused people who dominate the plaza’s public space six days a week. A tableau emerges. Here are the emissaries of the new tribalism, clustering huddled at McKinley’s feet. The daily assemblage indicts a society riven by addiction, lack of opportunity and economic inequality even worse than that of McKinley’s time, which is saying something. As unwelcome as it may be, this social context resuscitates the old bronze
as art and makes it, for the first time in a long while, a sight with the power to disturb complacency. By way of contrast, Erick Ragsdale’s elegant constructions, on display at the Sanctuary this month, present no intractable problems — just a series of intimate pleasures, running long on the charm of the obsolete. Austin native and recent Humboldt arrival Ragsdale trawled the county’s thrift shops and antiquaries in search of materials with which to construct these jewel-like assemblages. In meticulously fashioned set pieces, many of which contain their own sources of illumination, elements from 1930s Mechano toy sets come together with late 19th century stereogram viewers, 1960s Viewmasters, 3-D photos and more. Give them a look and a look through. ● Erick Ragsdale’s work is on view at the Sanctuary Arcata, 1301 J St., Arcata, throughout March. The artist will be screening unique archival prints of his hand-painted films during Arts Arcata on Friday, March 9 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Call 822-0898 or visit www.sanctuaryarcata.org.

he secret to growing a thriving kitchen garden is to follow nature. A quick look at any healthy, living system reveals a clamor of diversity: plants of different kinds keeping company while a mix of good bugs and bad ones busy themselves with the routine of daily living. You’ll also find a variety of birds and most likely a host of creatures you don’t recognize — but they’re part of the puzzle, too. When a garden is designed as a slice of life, the rewards are greater than a colander of snap peas or a bumper crop of tomatoes. Your garden is your most immediate touchpoint with nature, a welcoming place to play and contemplate, and when you look to companion plants such as edible flowers and herbs to build diversity, you now have a greater variety of robust and aromatic ingredients to savor from garden to table.
Companion Planting with Edible Flowers and Herbs Here in coastal Northern California, we’re fortunate to have a mild and inviting climate for growing most anything. Except for summer fog, there are few limitations. It’s cool enough in winter to sweeten cold-loving vegetables like brassicas and

warm enough in summer to yield a bumper crop. Throwing a handful of your most loved herbs and edible flowers into the mix serves as an added level of protection for your garden, confusing pests that target host plants by smell with a myriad of scents, while inviting pollinators. Plus, you get flowers. I love a neat row of veggies as much as the next person but to see a garden spilling over with color and a mix of textures and blooms is truly remarkable and not so difficult to achieve. You simply need to let go of perfection and embrace chaos — even a little bit of chaos will do. Next, consider the plants you love most and start with these. What are the flavors you crave and the ingredients you find yourself reaching for each day? Perhaps it’s cilantro, ‘Mrs. Burns’ basil, lemon thyme, or pineapple mint? Or maybe it’s the soft, tangerine-hued petals of calendula in your evening salad? Begin with a handful of plants and devise a basic plan. Grow sun loving edibles, such as thyme and nasturtiums, along the south side of beds, and place herbs like cilantro and parsley in between plants or on the north side of taller fruits and vegetables where they benefit from a little shade in summer months. I always grow basil near tomatoes because I’ve found basil improves the flavor

And there’s always room for a sunflower or two near green beans or planted among summer squash, cucumbers and even sugar baby melons. The large, heart-shaped leaves of squash act as ground cover, protecting soil moisture while making it more difficult for weeds to take hold. If you’re growing mint, keep it close to other plantings but be sure to give it a container of its own or it will happily take over your garden.
There’s no need to add chemicals or synthetic fertilizers to your kitchen garden when companion planting. Instead, let the plants do much of the work for you. I’ve found that the more diverse a kitchen garden, the less likely you are to battle an invasion of pests such as aphids or cabbage worms. Avoid planting large patches of any one variety and tuck plants like violas, oregano and chervil into corners and between edibles like leafy greens and alpine strawberries. Pesticides and chemical fertilizers are indiscriminate, poisoning good bugs and bad bugs alike, while breaking the cycle of natural systems living above and below the soil.

garden, however big or small, with healthy soil practices.
Build Soil Naturally
Soil is alive. It’s the heart of the garden, and the better your soil the better your food will taste and the more likely your garden will thrive. To build soil naturally, simply copy nature. In nature, trees drop leaf litter and plants live and die, leaving organic materials behind such as roots, stems and leaves. Bacteria and other soil life work away eating and pooping, decomposing what plants have provided. The process creates rich, healthy soil for future successional plantings. When we do our best to replicate this system, providing a home for a flourishing soil ecosystem, it naturally supports a flourishing garden. Begin any garden with a fairly even mix of organic soil and compost. Once you’re off and growing, apply a healthy layer of compost in the spring and again in the fall, and mulch liberally with most crops sourcing mulch materials locally whenever possible. Rice straw is good and leaves from your yard are even better. (Though be careful to avoid using leaves of plants that are allopathic, or medicinal, such as eucalyptus.)
Look to natural sources of amendments, such as worm castings, or make your own manure or comfrey tea when plants need a boost of nitrogen.
Grow What You Love
Organic practices and cultivating healthy soil are enough for most any garden to thrive, especially when you take a simple, systematic approach, copy nature as best as you can and check on your garden often. Growing a handful of beneficial plants — especially ones that double as edible wonders, like herbs and flowers — and taking a quick stroll with your morning tea to keep an eye on things is all you need to grow what you love. ● Emily Murphy was raised in Arcata and is the author of Grow What You Love, a foodie gardening book featuring 12 sets of seasonal ingredients to change the way you cook and live.

It’s a Woman’s World ho among us has not winced at a friend’s seemingly inadvisable romantic choice? Fortunately, however, most of us to do not as a result find ourselves at the center of a murder mystery involving a missing dental hygienist, a collection of antique surgical instruments, a lovelorn policeman and a misguided snowboarder. This antic collection is at the heart of Wendy MacLeod’s very entertaining Women in Jeopardy! now at Redwood Curtain Theatre. Liz, a divorcee of a certain age (Bethany Lamoureux in a promising local debut performance), has fallen hard for Jackson, the new dentist in town (George Inotowok in an equally auspicious Redwood Curtain debut). But Jackson has some rather strange ways about him — barking like a dog when he sees Liz and lending his hygienist a DVD of Silence of the Lambs right before she disappears — not to mention the bizarre habit of carrying throwing stars in his pockets. Liz’s closest friends and fellow divorcees Mary (a wonderfully solicitous Leslie Ostrom) and Jo (Jennifer Trustem dealing out a hefty dose of snark) are understandably concerned about Liz’s choice, but the alarm bells really go off when Liz tells them Jackson is taking her buxom teenage daughter Amanda (Skyler Carlsen in a delightfully ditzy performance) on a camping trip — just the two of them. Determined to stop what they’re now convinced is a murder plot, Mary and Jo enlist the help of Kirk, a local policeman who just happens to be the spitting
image of Jackson (and played with considerable aplomb by Inotowok – clearly a versatile addition to the local acting pool). Further confusion ensues when Kirk falls for Mary, who meanwhile has also enlisted the help of Amanda’s ex-boyfriend, snowboarder Trenner (a nicely timed comedic turn by Ivan Gamboa), who thinks Mary is trying to seduce him. This does not turn out to be the camping trip anyone envisioned but it’s a whole lot of fun for the audience! Director Justin Takata, who also designed the sound and lighting, keeps the action moving along at a cracking pace, ably supported by stage manager Nicole Mobley. Jordan Lampi’s scenic design is spare and flexible, keeping the focus on the performers, and Megan Hughes’ costume design serves the characters well. Women in Jeopardy! is the first production in Redwood Curtain’s 20th season and if this is any indication of the quality we can expect for the rest of 2018, we’re in for a treat of a year. Redwood Curtain Theatre’s Women in Jeopardy! runs through March 18 with shows Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Call 443-7688 or visit www.redwoodcurtain. com. ● You know you’re going to be in for some fun when you cross a midway to reach the auditorium at the Van Duzer Theatre for the Humboldt State University theater department’s production of the delightful morality fable that is Charlotte’s
Web — and you won’t be disappointed. In Joseph Robinette’s adaptation of the E.B. White classic, we first meet Wilbur the piglet in the form of a fuzzy pink hand puppet operated by Cate Hatfield, who also endearingly plays the grown-up Wilbur with an adorably upturned snout. His sweetly innocent personality ensures his owners Martha and John Arable (Taiquira Williams and Merrick Yra) let daughter Fern (Izzy Ceja) keep him, despite brother Avery’s mockery (Evan Miller). He even wins over the folks at Zuckerman’s farm (Amy Beltran, Isaiah Alexander and Kyler Teske), even though they’re secretly fattening him up for bacon. But because he’s such an engaging little pig, Wilbur soon makes friends with his fellow critters at the Zuckerman’s: the goose and gander (Nicole Riffenburgh, Ezra Moreno), who are so chatty they say everything three times; the cranky old sheep (Serena Mann) and her frisky lamb (Micah Scheff); Templeton the grumpy, self-centered rat; and his very special friend Charlotte the barn spider (a poised and graceful Camille Borrowdale). Rounding out the outstanding cast are Marissa Sanchez and Amelia Resendez as the reporter and photographer sent to cover Wilbur at the County Fair, where Charlotte weaves her magic in the words we should all aspire to — and that ultimately save Wilbur’s life. Many of the actors take on other ensemble roles at the fair, along with Alexis Brown and Raechel Robinson, and everyone comes together at the end for a rousing and well-choreographed barn dance that will have you tapping your feet and clapping along. Director Derek Lane’s decision to use a trio of narrators (Irma Gill, Sarah Burfoot, and Brianna Fergus) to provide background and continuity lets the performers focus on their individual personalities and contributions to the story.

Musical Transmitters By Collin Yeo
’ve been bloviating a lot here lately, so I’ll make this short and sweet. I heard a sound last week, a most unique and wonderful sound, and I would like to share it with you, inasmuch as I can transmit that information via the printed word. I went back-country snowboarding on Horse Mountain last Monday — the less said about my abilities at that sport the better — and there was this sound ricocheting across the valley. It sounded like a pitch-shifted metallic twang. After our runs, my buddy suggested that we check out the road the snowplows had just cleared up to some transmission towers. I am very grateful he did because as we surveyed our erstwhile boarding hill from across the valley from where we parked below the towers, we were treated to the source of that sound. Snow clumps, melting off the transmitters and discs on the modern metal spires were falling and hitting cables, metal struts and other accoutrements (I am not an engineer and I know none of the technical terms for such things) attached to the structures, making a symphony of percussive metal noises. This soundtrack, coupled with the sweeping snowy vista below us in the clear sunny air made me feel as if I were in a strange and beautiful film. Like if Werner Herzog made a bloodless sci-fi flick that was also somehow a documentary about evergreens. It was the perfect coda to a day of pure ego-depantsing as I learned how to fall down and get up and fall down again. Have a great week.
Thursday It’s an all ages low-fi rock night at Siren’s Song tonight at 8:30 p.m. when Sacramento’s grungy emo kids Meet Cute play with local garage-y headliners Super Senior, formerly Kids Eat Free (it’s a move up the menu, name-wise I suppose). Local openers Five Minutes Alone starts the night. Do they sound anything like the Pantera song of the same name? Vegas odds say it’s rather doubtful but there’s only one way to find out, friends. Price TBA. Northwards across the bay it’s pint night at The Jam with another solid YAMS-curated show at 9:30 p.m. ($5). Three very different and very talented local bands come together to play to local half-priced beer fanciers: Paradise
Inc. pays the bills with a glossy modern psychedelic pop sound, while Opossum Sun Trail favors a more classically western lysergic sound with a mezcal sheen and The Fatherlies play progressive jazz chops with, I dunno, a Sun Ra sunburn? What I’m saying is that I have a sunburn which has probably worked its way into my skull, so bear with me on my descriptions — I have good intentions I assure you. Most of bluegrass king Del McCoury’s backing band — including two of his sons — have been touring for the better part of a decade as The Travelin’ McCourys playing hot bluegrass jams to packed venues across the land. Tonight at 9:30 p.m. they play Humbrews in support of their long-awaited debut long player. Three-piece Oakland folk act T Sisters, made up of — wait for it — three sisters, opens the night ($25).
Nataanii Means performs at The Outer Space on Sunday, March 11 at 7 p.m. Image via YouTube
Black Faun Gallery is hosting Nest of Possibilities at 6 p.m., a live drawing performance by artist Laura Corsiglia with improvised music by Medicine Baul and dance by Leslie Castellano. Price TBA.
There’s a disparate deal going down at The Little Red Lion tonight at 8 p.m. with an experimental metal band from the East Bay called Gurschach and a swingin’ and punkish ragtime act from Ellensburg, Washington, named Robbers Roost. Elsewhere in the roster you will find local heavy groovers Ultramafic, glammy punk gutter act The Scum Lourdes and the delightful folk duo Cats Meow. A perfectly odd lineup for a perfectly odd bar. Price TBA.
Oglala Sioux and Navajo activist and hip-hop artist Nataanii Means performs at The Outer Space tonight at 7 p.m. ($8). Joining him will be Native rapper Antoine Edwards from Omaha, GRIZZ and Arcata hip-hop act Mash Yellow Bird. For the past 30 years, through line-up changes and the death of a founding member, Altan has been consistently ranked one of the world’s best groups playing a modern take on Celtic and traditional Irish music. If that is your jam, then join them tonight at the Van Duzer Theatre at 7 p.m. for an evening of exactly that sort of thing ($39).
The Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir and the Arcata Interfaith Gospel Youth Choir presents Love Thy Neighbor tonight at 7 p.m. at the Arcata Presbyterian Church ($18, $15 advance). It’s a fundraiser for the church to help repair damage caused by the horrific arson attack last September that also seriously injured a 28-year-old man who was sleeping in the doorway. Yes, in case you forgot, someone was set on fire in the doorway of a church in our community last autumn, so love thy neighbor seems like a pretty important message. It’s a loud-music showcase tonight at The Siren’s Song tonight with Portland post-punk act Broken Spirit and two hardcore acts from Chico, D-FY and Outside Looking In at 8 p.m. ($8). Punk band The ChainLinks provide local support for this all ages event.
I really dug deep for this one but I have to be honest, apart from a regular restaurant gig — Tony Roach at The Victorian Inn at 6 p.m. and Rude Lion Sound’s regular dancehall Monday deal at The Ocean Grove at 9:30 p.m., both of which I have mentioned in this column before, I can’t find any shows to recommend tonight. It’s Monday, after all, but a real dead one at that. How dead is it? How about deader than a bigoted evangelist who told a delighted and agreeable Richard Nixon during a taped conversation in 1972 that Jewish people have a “stranglehold” on America that “has got to be broken or the country’s going down the drain.” Deader than the snake oil salesman who helped to destroy the separation of church and state in this country by weaponizing religion to the detriment of millions of people, religious and
secular alike. Deader than the apocalyptically-obsessed creep who openly supported the disastrous war in Vietnam and privately advised bombing campaigns too horrific in projected casualties even for the aforementioned President Nixon. Just spit-balling here and using my lazy creativity to imagine this recently deceased and purely fictional charlatan to illustrate how grave-like tonight is, as no one with so outlandishly ugly a character could have achieved any prominence as a national moralist in real life.
Who Is She Productions presents Dancehall at The Jam at 10 p.m., a bi-monthly Jamaican dance party that happens on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month and which will likely burn the midnight oil. Price TBA.
Wednesday One of Japan’s most popular modern taiko drumming groups Yamato stops off in Arcata for a performance of its newest production The Challengers tonight at 7 p.m. ($39). Expect an evening of complex dances, masterful multi-instrumentation and elaborate costumes all to the beat of the broad family of percussion instruments that make up the taiko tradition. Full show listings in the Journal’s Music and More grid, the Calendar and online. Bands and promoters, send your gig info, preferably with a high-res photo or two, to email@example.com. Collin Yeo could not imagine a national political landscape this venal and stupid outside of a pirate colony run by intellectually deficient cavemen. He lives in Arcata.

Humboldt’s finest dancers give it their all, competing for scholarships and prizes at Dancing Stars of Humboldt on Saturday, March 10 at 7 p.m. at the Arkley Center for the Performing Arts ($12).

Boom Taiko means drum in Japanese but it’s also come to mean the mesmerizing traditional drum performance that’s remained low-tech and high-drama since the sixth century.

I once watched elementary school kids throw down at a festival and even that kind of blew me away. Expect a serious adrenaline rush when Yamato thunders on stage at the Van Duzer Theatre on

March 14 at 7 p.m. ($39) with some 40 drums, including a 180-pounder carved from a 400-year-old tree. Making its way through Humboldt on another world tour, the troupe from Nara, Japan, relaxes on the stoicism and brings playful showmanship and plenty of sweat to the art form. (There’s a reason members weight train and run 10 kilometers a day — and nobody’s skipping arm day.) Yamato is also smashing the patriarchy, ditching the men-only rule and showcasing some very badass women who’ll be pounding out the beats along with the fellas. — Jennifer Fumiko Cahill

Cold War Warmed Over And a pointless Death Wish do-over By John J. Bennett
The North Coast’s Complete Restaurant Directory
RED SPARROW. There is something — a great number of things, probably — to be said in art and cinema and literature about the renewing of hostilities between the United States and Russia, the questionable end of the Cold War these three decades on and the macho-posturing, democracy reducing, oligarch good-old-boys clubs running the show on both sides. But making a muddled, deliberately conventional, notably overlong spy thriller in the style of a bygone era doesn’t add much to the conversation; with Red Sparrow, that is precisely what we get. In present day Moscow, Bolshoi ballerina Dominika Egorova (Jennifer Lawrence), relies on the state to reward her hard work with a comfortable place to live and adequate medical care for her chronically ill mother. She knows herself only as a dancer, so when jealous machinations put a premature end to her career, she is lost. Enter Uncle Vanya (Matthias Schoenaerts) — the character name has to be a joke, right? The tone of the piece doesn’t seem to allow for even that much humor. He’s highly placed in state intelligence and, seeing terrible capability in his niece provides her with information regarding the conspirators against her and then watches with sick satisfaction as she metes out her justice. This proves to be Dominika’s initiation into the world of espionage, wherein she is almost immediately made complicit in a high-profile murder. Her knowledge of the assassination affords her only two options: die, silence ensured, or enter a training program to become a “Sparrow,” an intelligence operative whose primary weapon is sex. She doesn’t choose death, obviously, and so spends the next act of the movie in an austere boarding school atmosphere being alternately demeaned and assaulted, and tempering her resolve. Meanwhile, a CIA agent called Nate Nash (Joel Edgerton) — again with the names; it’s like a Red Scare comic book — has been pulled out of Moscow, where he had been operating as a highly placed informant from within the Russian intelli-
38 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, March 8, 2018 • northcoastjournal.com
gence establishment until said operation became compromised. Re-assigned to Budapest, he becomes aware of Dominika, who has been made aware of him. There’s some will-they-or-won’t-they (they will), a distracting subplot involving a U.S. senator’s drunky chief of staff (Mary-Louise Parker) peddling state secrets, followed by double-crosses on double-crosses. And then it ends with a nice neat bow on it. Despite its ostensible topicality and the presence of some eminently recognizable stars, Red Sparrow plays like something from decades past, which in some cases would be a compliment, but here speaks more to the staid, tentative tone and moribund pacing. Though punctuated by a few moments of graphic violence and nudity, the movie never rises to the intended level of severity or impact. Instead, those scenes feel incongruous and, in their intentional, over-wrought casualness, somehow even more gratuitous than they otherwise would. To be fair, there is an attractive, if formalized aesthetic firmly in place and the cast does fine work with the material. But the whole thing, in its dour determination, fails to deliver on its significant promise. Also, and I’ll grant that this is a point of minor bitchery, can’t we just decide to either cast native speakers and allow them to speak their own language or simply use uninflected English? This business of a global cast affecting accents bugs, here more than anywhere in recent memory. Russians speaking to Russians don’t sound like Americans and Europeans speaking English with “Russian” accents. R. 139M. BROADWAY, FORTUNA, MILL CREEK.
DEATH WISH. The original 1974 adaptation (noteworthy mostly for its early Jeff Goldblum cameo) of Brian Garfield’s novel is a troublesome, problematic thing, much like the long career and international fame of its taciturn star, Charles Bronson. It capitalized on the paranoia and nastiness of ’70s America and launched an unironic franchise that, from experience, doesn’t bear revisiting and certainly doesn’t merit
contemporary recycling. Reinvention, maybe, finding ourselves as we do in a new but all-too-familiar era of looming international conflict, seemingly unceasing domestic strife, hideous violence and crumbling infrastructure. But director Eli Roth, working from a “new” adaptation by Joe Carnahan, apparently isn’t interested in interpretation or insight, choosing instead to ape the original, altering it only in as much as it has now become a vehicle for a pale, drooping Bruce Willis. Willis plays Paul Kersey, a Chicago trauma surgeon whose domestic bliss is destroyed by home invaders possessed of ineptitude and cruelty in equal measure. In an inexplicable transition, Kersey takes to the streets, becoming a Glock-wielding deliverer of nonsensical vengeance via street justice. Some lip service is paid to the role of social media in elevating him to mythical status but it’s just background for the stupefyingly linear trajectory of the narrative. While I think it unfair to accuse Roth or Death Wish of celebrating gun violence or downplaying its devastating effects any more than other films, I will take him to task for putting out a remake that neither adds to nor reinterprets the original. There is nothing shocking or scary or new here, which is all I would really have hoped for from Roth. There isn’t even a trace of the sticky-floored funk of the grindhouse, just vanilla with a little blood in it. Where re-watching the Bronson version at least leaves one feeling uncomfortable about the politics of its violence, reminded of a place and time to which we hope never to return, this is vacuous, antiseptic and unimportant.

By Barry Evans
he mysterious Voynich manuscript has finally been decoded.” — Ars Technica headline Sept. 8, 2017 And here we go again. Every two or three years, ever since the socalled Voynich Manuscript resurfaced from obscurity in 1912, professional researchers and amateur decipherers announce they’ve decoded this 15th century book. This time around it’s Greg Kondrak, professor of computer science at the University of Alberta in Canada, who used artificial intelligence techniques to translate, well, not the entire book, actually, despite the headline. Just the first sentence. Here it is: “She made recommendations to the priest, man of the house and me and people.” Kondrak says, “It’s a kind of strange sentence to start a manuscript but it definitely makes sense.” If you say so. Kondrak joins a long list of wouldbe decoders, starting in 1921 with a University of Pennsylvania researcher who ignored the actual visible text; he proposed that the real message was in “Greek shorthand” buried within individual letters and only visible through a microscope. (No one else could see them.) Since then, claims for a Greek/Latin/ Egyptian/Ukrainian/Arabic/Hebrew/ Flemish/English basis for the manuscript have regularly appeared — and shown to be false. I expect the same fate awaits Kondrak’s AI effort. The manuscript is a vellum codex, or bound book, of 240 pages (out of an estimated 272 original pages) made from calfskin. This skin was recently radiocarbon-dated to between 1404 and 1438, thus establishing the earliest date for the writing. Although attempts at deciphering have so far failed, the colored illustrations tell us that the book includes sections on herbs and botany, astrono-
Detail from one of the Voynich Manuscript’s 240 pages. Public domain
my and cosmology, and pharmaceutical cures. And nymphs, lots of nymphs (see the accompanying illustration). Whatever the curious symbols mean, they appear to be letters comprising a 25-character (more or less) alphabet. Words are between two and 10 letters long, with no punctuation. Written in an unknown language in an unknown script, the manuscript is generally assumed to be in code. However, there’s no indication of any delay or hesitation between characters, which would be expected if the scribe were encoding while writing. And, even more curious, the unknown author corrected not a single character out of the total 170,000 letters. The fluid nature of the script seems to be telling us that the book’s architect wrote in a natural script in his or her natural language. Skeptical readers will surely be asking by now if the whole thing is a hoax, either created several hundred years ago as a money-making scam (Emperor Rudolf II, 1552-1612, supposedly bought it for 600 ducats, or 73 ounces of gold) or forged more recently. If the latter, prime suspect is the eponymous Wilfrid Voynich, a Polish book dealer, but this seems farfetched in the light of the radiocarbon dating. He said he bought it in 1912; how could he have acquired so much untouched 500-year old calfskin? So the mystery remains, having stumped experts in medieval history, codebreakers from the two world wars, professional linguists and amateurs from all over. It’s available at www.archive.org/ details/TheVoynichManuscript. Want to give it a try? ● Barry Evans (barryevans9@yahoo. com) is still skeptical, having been completely fooled by the 2012 “Gospel of Jesus’ Wife” hoax.
