We Are Humboldt — All of Us By Thadeus Greenson firstname.lastname@example.org
e see it overtly in online comments sections, the sentiment that “if they don’t like it here, they should leave.” And we see it subtly in things like the recently minted Facebook page pushing for a public vote on the fate of President McKinley’s statue in the Arcata Plaza, which the city council voted to remove in February in the face of growing public pressure, much of it coming from the Humboldt State University campus. The page is titled “Let the People Vote on Our McKinley Statue,” gently intoning that those new-to-town campus folk can’t possibly hold any ownership of the thing. Even more subtly, we see it in the comments of a heartfelt woman who during Arcata’s recent Community Dialogue on Race said, seemingly directed at HSU students of color, “If you want friends, show yourself friendly.” There’s nothing wrong with the sentiment on its own — it holds true in most venues. But Humboldt County needs to recognize that this proves most true for those who have been here years, decades or generations. Humboldt County is better for having Humboldt State University and the brains, diversity, vibrancy, ingenuity and dollars it brings here. And all of us who have staked lives here had better recognize that we need friends — especially smart, hard-working, motivated ones — to help us make this a better place for our children and our children’s children. So we damn well better show ourselves friendly. And maybe if we did show ourselves friendlier, in time, these new-to-towners will set down roots. Maybe they’ll love it so much they’ll go to medical school and come back as much-needed doctors and nurses. Maybe they’ll become so enthralled with the redwoods and the folksy smiles that they’ll start a business and hire you to work there. Maybe they’ll get a credential and teach your kids’ elementary school class. If you read this week’s cover package,
you’ll see that there’s a growing segment of our community that doesn’t like it here, that doesn’t feel safe here. And that’s not on them. It’s on those of us who have long called Humboldt home and it’s up to us to change it. People of color in this community have already done too much work in this conversation. They’ve stood up at public meetings and forums to speak of their experiences — to tell stories of being made to feel unwelcome, of receiving side-eyes and subtle accusations. And they’ve done this — repeatedly — simply to get this community to acknowledge their experiences as real problems that need to be addressed. Their work should be finished. It’s now on the rest of the local community — the part that’s 84 percent white, according to the U.S. Census — to push this conversation forward, to show itself friendly, as it were. There is a lot at stake. HSU is the county’s largest employer and generates an estimated $190 million to the regional economy annually, including an estimated $10.5 million in local sales tax, according to a recent California State University system study. According to a 2010 report, there are some 10,000 HSU alumni currently living in Humboldt, with somewhere around 30 percent of graduating seniors looking to stay locally each year. In a county with an economy that’s slumping amid the legalization of our largest agricultural export, these aren’t numbers that can be dismissed. We need students to want to keep coming to HSU and we need them to build lives here after graduation. But all that pales in comparison to the moral imperative. Humboldt County needs to make students — and community members — of all races, ethnicities, sexual identities and orientations feel welcome here because it’s the right thing to do. So we at the Journal will come out and say it. We will continue to work to make this community one that strives to welcome all people and to keep them safe. We’ll work to make it a place where you can be you, so long as you’re not causing harm to anyone else. We’ll strive to make it a place where people understand, respect and celebrate our differences while sharing our common interests, goals and passions. As HSU student Jibril says in this week’s cover package, “We are Humboldt.” And if you can’t get behind that, well, you should probably leave. ● Thadeus Greenson is the Journal’s news editor.

‘The Bug Dude’ Editor: Hats off to the Bug Dude, Anthony Westkamper (HumBug, posts Sundays at www.northcoastjournal.com). I always enjoy the details in his columns, maybe because I’m a plant person: Bugs are part of the scene. Also, I like his self-deprecating humor. Zephyr Markowitz, Bayside
Who’s Erasing History? Editor: You know all of “Humboldt County” is stolen land, right? This narrative (Mailbox, March 29) by white people about wanting to keep the McKinley statue where it’s located, or around town, even at the museum in Ohio, is some racist nonsense. Preference to white supremacy, which McKinley and the colonists who committed all sorts of atrocities here stood for, goes against any idea of equality based on culture or race. Feeling entitled to have a vote about a matter, in a place that the people living Terry Torgerson
there before you were forcefully removed with violence, is a disgusting opinion. How do we acknowledge that we are only in this place because some crude humans showed up one day claiming rights to the land and continue living our lives here as if that’s not true? If we understand now that doing all the things Europeans and early Americans did to Native people is wrong, bad, improper, cruel, etc., then why do we honor or pay tribute to it? You know Arcata’s “plaza” is a way to erase the history of Wiyot people? Does that sit well with you? Stanton Wood, Eureka
‘Shining a Light’ Editor: Thank you for the great cover story about the successes of the brave individuals who triumphed over their addictions via drug court (“The Graduates,” April 5).

For so long the lock-them-up mentality that has proven to be so ineffective, and yet it is still embraced, perhaps because folks are unaware of the drug court. The courage of the individuals featured in your article is inspiring. By featuring the stories behind their faces, we get to understand that, as you said so eloquently in your editorial (April 5), “We won’t get anywhere constructive without recognizing the inherent humanity of those involved.” Right on!

Poem by the Condominium President’s Council on Aging Frequently things return when we’re older some forms of love and osteoarthritis. Love comes in memories, beyond reach after years. A euphoria of sensory moments. A skin whose texture we cannot recall, the tingle of welcome touch a taste of lips, caress of hair and a tongue which could destroy us. Arthritis, the joint freezing prince of pain and immobility, like love whispers barely audible caution warnings, then summarily deserts us. After Council review The Board has decided love and arthritis are much the same, and worst, both outlive our sex drive. — Lawence Strattner

Assistant Auditor Karen Paz Dominguez Access Humboldt
Drama at the A/C
Power struggles, security breaches, a sexual harassment complaint and a Brown Act violation rock auditor controller’s office By Linda Stansberry email@example.com
lthough it’s elected, the position of county auditor-controller is rarely the stuff of headlines. But the county’s top fiscal job, which involves financial oversight of county agencies, budgeting and disbursement of county funds, has recently garnered some controversy, thanks in part to Assistant Auditor Karen Paz Dominguez, who first stepped into the spotlight at a Humboldt County Board of Supervisors meeting Nov. 7, using her allotted three minutes of public comment to tell the board the office was so severely understaffed it could not do its job properly. That comment launched a series of longform pieces by Ryan Burns at the Lost Coast Outpost about dysfunction in the department, Paz Dominguez’s decision to run for the position of auditor-controller and the surprise resignation of current Auditor-Controller Joseph Mellett, who is due to retire April 27. Paz Dominguez’s outspokenness about the department’s failings has earned her both public and private censure — some from the very people whom, if she triumphs in June’s election, she will be responsible for supervising. If Paz Dominguez’s assessment is correct, many of the issues in the department stem from a power struggle between herself and the payroll department, which she says has been responsible, in part, for a series
of security breaches that left confidential employee information vulnerable to theft. In March, she alleges, an employee in the office sent digital copies of the entire county workforce’s W-2s to another employee’s private email account by accident. The employee, who had asked for his or her own W-2, opened it and saw Fourth District County Supervisor Virginia Bass’ name. The employee’s supervisor alerted the auditor-controller’s office, according to Paz Dominguez. This was one of a series of incidents Paz Dominguez tells the Journal she felt left out of the loop about but, when she went to Mellett for support, he reportedly told her to “not to interfere.” Paz Dominguez went to the Human Resources Department, which advised her to write a step-by-step guideline for payroll staff about her expectations. She did so but found out that the guidelines had to be given to the staff by Mellett. Mellett, she alleges, refused. “He accused me of insubordination,” says Paz Dominguez. “I told him, ‘I’m just trying to do my job.’” Paz Dominguez says Mellett then threatened to discipline her. “He said, ‘Go to your office, stop being hormonal, get your emotions in check,’” she says, demonstrating a dismissive hand wave Mellett allegedly directed at her afterward. Following the incident, Paz Dominguez says
she filed a sexual harassement complaint against Mellett. We reached out to county spokesperson Sean Quincey to discuss Paz Dominguez’s allegations. Quincey said many of our questions would be better directed toward Mellett. The embattled auditor-controller — who had pledged to serve the year but, after Paz Dominguez’s alleged complaint, announced he will instead resign April 27 — said he “could not discuss ongoing investigations.” But Paz Dominguez has also been hit with complaints by her coworkers, who allege that she has created a hostile work environment. Quincey confirmed that there have been “multiple complaints filed in the auditor-controller’s office recently.” We also asked Mellett about issues with the W-2s and the chain-of-command relationship between his position and the payroll department, as well as Paz Dominguez’s job performance. He declined to answer them. He is — he said — happy to be retiring. “The beautiful weather and a variety of courthouse dramas made me decide to accelerate my exit date and I’m leaving in good conscience,” he told the Journal in an email. With Mellett’s early departure, his post will be vacant until voters decide the race between Paz Dominguez and Michael Lorig, an accountant in the county Department of Health and Human Services, in June. But someone has to run the office in the interim and on the Saturday she sat down with the Journal, Paz Dominguez was anxiously looking ahead to the April 3 meeting of the board of supervisors, which was scheduled to discuss Mellett’s departure and the possible recruitment process for an interim replacement. Paz Dominguez fumed, calling the recruitment “retaliatory.” She attended that meeting and again spoke at public comment, telling the board it should not engage in the “needless spending of public funds” to recruit someone for a temporary job, someone, she added, she would have to take time to train. In a surprise move, First District Supervisor Rex Bohn seemed to agree with her, saying that he liked the idea of “circumventing the process.” Maybe, he said, they could ask someone who’s already in the system to step in, such as a retired annuitant. He pointed to Cheryl Dillingham, a retired annuitant and former employee with the auditor-controller’s office currently aiding the county with ADA compliance, who happened to be in the room. The board asked Dillingham if she would temporarily take the job. She agreed. They unanimously voted her in. “I had a few people from AC’s office speak to me over the last few days, this was by far the most palatable option, by far,”
Bohn said during the meeting. “It’s funny when the most obvious solution walks into the room.” Whether Dillingham’s presence was a coincidence or some civic process theater is unclear, but it was, according to Terry Francke, legal counsel and founder of public forum watchdog CalAware, almost certainly a violation of California’s open meetings law, the Ralph M. Brown Act. We asked Francke to watch the video of the meeting for which Mellett’s resignation and the recruitment
process were agendized. “The Brown Act requires that a local government body like the board of supervisors refrain from taking action on any item not appearing on the posted agenda for the meeting with a few exceptions not applicable in this instance,” Francke replied in an email. “The board’s reaction to the offer presented to them made it clear that not even they, much less the public, were given advance notice that the offer would be made. The board could cure and correct
the violation by rescinding the appointment and placing the proposal on a future agenda, giving interested members of the public the opportunity to address the board on the issue.” We reached out to Bohn for comment on this issue but have not heard back. l Linda Stansberry is a staff writer at the Journal.

A Parent’s Worst Nightmare By Charmaine Lawson email@example.com
t’s been a year since my son — David Josiah Lawson — was senselessly murdered and I’m still waiting for justice. His murderer or murderers are still walking free and this tragedy has sent me through a whirlwind of emotions. I’m sometimes left numb to what has happened but my fight for DJ’s justice has kept me from falling apart. My strength and courage come from an amazing network of family and friends, the Humboldt community and Humboldt State University students and faculty. God has blessed this group of positive influencers in my life because, without them, I don’t know if I would have made it this far. This tough journey has been filled with disappointments, from the lack of justification for the first responders’ actions, the delay in receiving the autopsy report, the police report that I have still not seen, the dwindling communication from the Arcata Police Department and the lack of availability from the HSU president. What I’ve learned through my son’s murder is that
if policies and procedures were followed, I don’t believe I would be living this terrible nightmare. The first responders’ lack of following policies and procedures has led to many unanswered questions. The first account was when the Arcata Police Department did not attend to DJ immediately. Officers also failed to secure the scene to allow the paramedics to get to my son in a timely manner. Many of the witnesses felt racial discrimination played a big part in the first responders’ lack of quick reaction to render aid to my son. Arcata Police Chief Tom Chapman has openly admitted that the defibrillator used by his first responders was slow to function because it was not fully charged. Due to the APD responders’ incompetence when controlling the scene, this delayed the response of the paramedics getting to DJ in time. Through all of this, my biggest question in this disappointment was the first responders’ complaint regarding how crowd control
played a factor in their ability to do their jobs. I find it strange how the prime suspect, a white male, was somehow taken from the “uncontrolled” scene to be placed safely in a police vehicle while my black son lay there bleeding to death. The delays with the first responders bring about more concerns regarding the report of my son’s murder. To this day I have not been able to view my son’s police report. I was told by the APD chief that the police report would be available to the first lawyer that I appointed and it was never provided to him. My second attorney also requested the police report and she was denied the report because she was told it was an open investigation, per the chief of police, Tom Chapman. Another delay was in the months spent waiting for the autopsy report. I was just recently notified on March 13 by City Manager Karen Diemer that the autopsy report was submitted to the Humboldt County coroner. The attorneys who have been working patiently on this case have expressed to me that this timeframe to receive an autopsy report is completely unacceptable. Even though these delays with my son’s case have caused frustration, I have received endless support from faculty and staff of HSU. Build to edge of the document Margins are just a safe area
The support I have received to this day has been incredibly amazing. However, the lack of support from HSU President Lisa Rossbacher has been disappointing. I have traveled from Southern California to Humboldt County to stand in solidarity with HSU students and community members. I’ve only seen Lisa Rossbacher three times while traveling over the last 11 months to attend my son’s monthly vigils and city council meetings. The person ultimately accountable for student safety, Lisa Rossbacher, was not present. The HSU president should be available for all student issues and concerns. Students and parents should feel confident that their loved ones are left in an environment that provides safety and accountability, and that allows students to nurture career goals. There are many unanswered questions. The first responders’ answers to questions of why their policies and procedures were not followed have been very inadequate. The prime suspect, a white male, was given priority over my son, a black male, whose attention was needed the most due to the injuries that he suffered. My first question to the Arcata mayor is: When is APD going to be investigated for its incompetence when officers were dis-

patched to Spear Avenue that early morning? The urgency in the reporting of my son’s case has been very poor from APD. The timeframe from which the autopsy report was submitted was much longer than normal. Also, a year later, we are still waiting for DNA evidence to be completed. My second question to the mayor is, why are we waiting a year later for DNA evidence and how much longer do I have to wait? A growing concern for the safety of HSU students and city of Arcata residents is now in the forefront. My third question to the mayor is, when is Tom Chapman going to be replaced to assure the safety of the residents of Arcata? To the mayor, city manager, and the president of HSU: Why doesn’t my son’s life matter enough? All local resources have been exhausted, so why haven’t you as decision makers reached out to the Department of Justice to come take over the case from APD? And why did Chapman ask for the riot squad to be on standby April 20, the day of my son’s memorial service at HSU? APD’s fear of students of color and lack of accountability seem to play a consistent role throughout this investigation and I worry this may hinder justice being served for my son.
Overall, I am thankful for the support that I have received in pursuing justice for my son DJ. This fight will continue until I get justice for David Josiah Lawson. My son was a loving, caring, compassionate and ambitious man with integrity. He understood that it is not about the quantity in one’s life, but the quality of how you treat others around you. Although this journey has been hard, I will continue to make sure that his legacy lives on. My son was destined for greatness, and that is how he will be remembered. To all mothers who have lost a child, invest your tears. l Editor’s Note: Charmaine Lawson submitted this piece to the Journal on April 9, a day before Arcata Police Chief Tom Chapman resigned his post with the city. Reached April 10, Lawson said she stands by the piece and for months had been urging the city to terminate Chapman’s employment. In the weeks after Josiah Lawson’s death, Chapman indicated he’d heard concerns about first responders’ performance and would investigate them after the conclusion of the criminal investigation. For more on the initial response, see the Journal’s May 4, 2017, cover story “What Now?”

Don’t Smoke Fake Weed When real news loses its novelty By Linda Stansberry
he science of why smoking cannabis screws with your memory is kind of fascinating. Memory itself is kind of fascinating. The current understanding is that our brains are kind of like computer processors that take immediate, short-term data and processes it during sleep’s REM-cycle to be stored as long-term memories. Cool, huh? Anecdotally, we might have observed that heavy pot smokers can have memory problems, which has been backed up by several scientific studies. A 2015 study published in the scientific journal Molecular Psychiatry also indicates a relationship between heavy cannabis use and susceptibility to false memories. (If you haven’t been following the science on neuroplasticity, false memories are totally
a thing, although they are usually less like those crazy kindergarten sex cult tabloid stories from the ’90s and more like your belief that you definitely used your blinker before the cop pulled you over.) Cannabis’ impact on memory is directly related to one of its more pleasurable effects, specifically the stimulation of CB1 receptors in our brain’s amygdala, which increases the novelty of items or ideas that you might otherwise think are boring (e.g. reruns of Xena: Warrior Princess). Which is all to say, I am over the novelty factor in reports of people getting ill/dying/having psychotic breaks after smoking fake weed. The latest story, which comes from a May 6 alert from the CenContinued on page 13 »

Week in Weed Continued from page 11
ters for Disease Control and was reported by CNN, hinges around some horror movie-type bleeding that sent 94 people in Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri and Wisconsin to the emergency room. Three people died. The connection all seems to hinge on heartlanders smoking synthetic weed, which is often sold in gas stations or online, not subject to any federal oversight (it’s sometimes labeled as “incense”) and contains a number of nasty chemicals that potentially include rat poison. A lot of how we do our job ethically as journalists hinges on what we choose to report, when and why. So this isn’t to say that if a wave of deaths or illnesses related to synthetic weed hit Humboldt County (unlikely, considering the abundance of the real stuff) I wouldn’t cover it. I just feel as though the stuff’s temporary presence at the top of the internet charts does a disservice to the real, systemic and more challenging issues that remain below the fold. According to the CNN article, it isn’t kids who are dying from fake weed. Thanks in part to a robust public awareness campaign, use of synthetic cannabis by minors has dropped drastically in the last decade. The people addicted to, using and getting sick from synthetic weed in Illinois are the same people who our system consistently fails in most other respects — the homeless and mentally ill. The fact that we have a large population of underhoused, chronically homeless people in the United States, a population that overlaps with a large, underserved population of mentally ill people, is not new news. But it is one of the most pressing and challenging issues of our times. The fact that while a handful of people are dying after smoking synthetic weed, scores more are dying each day from our nation’s opiate epidemic is also not new news. As the aphorism goes, “Dog Bites Man,” is not news, but “Man Bites Dog” might be. Still, I feel compelled to keep these issues in our consciousness. Oh, you thought this was the Week in Weed? Nope, this week you’re getting the synthetic Week in Weed, complete with a toxic frosting of depressing facts about some of our most intractable social problems. It’s not Fake News, it’s just news that has, sadly, lost its novelty. l Linda Stansberry is a staff writer at the Journal. Reach her at 442-1400, extension 317, or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Officers Bust ‘International Conspiracy’ to Steal Succulents
he growing popularity of using succulents — here and abroad — for decorative plant arrangements is resulting in what state officials are calling a “rising poaching trend on the North Coast,” including the the discovery of an alleged international poaching ring. California Department of Fish and Wildlife officials arrested Taehun Kim, 52, and Taeyun Kim, 46, both of Korea, and Liu Fengxia, 37, of China, near Trinidad for allegedly “poaching over 2,300 dudleya succulent plants near Trinidad in Humboldt County.” Wildlife officers intercepted and seized 1,334 of the plants in boxes being prepared for overseas shipping on April 4 and found another 1,000 dudleya after serving a search warrant on the suspects’ hotel room. The three are now facing a series of charges, including the illegal taking of the plants and felony conspiracy, according to a CDFW release. The generally hearty and drought-resistant plants can bring $40 to $50 apiece on

the Asian market — upwards of $100,000 for what was discovered last week. Coupled with the environmental damage the poaching can cause, many of California’s dudleya varieties are at risk of going extinct, officials said. “We have seen a remarkable amount of concern over this from botanists and the public alike,” David Bess, CDFW deputy director and chief of law enforcement, said in the release. “A public tip started this investigation and ultimately uncovered an international conspiracy to poach Dudleya succulents and ship them overseas for profit.” According to its press release, CDFW initially noticed the poaching trend earlier this year, after learning that a man was shipping Dudleya to China out of a Mendocino County post office. In recent months, wildlife officers have cited three individuals for misdemeanor violations, including illegal taking and trespassing, near Mendocino County’s Point Arena.

As frustrations grow and the anniversary of an HSU student’s slaying approaches, a police chief resigns abruptly By Thadeus Greenson email@example.com
rcata Police Chief Tom Chapman abruptly resigned his post April 10, sending a departmentwide email saying he felt the timing was right “not only for [him] but for the department.” He offered no reason for his sudden departure, which was effectively immediately. However, the Journal has learned that Chapman’s resignation followed that of a consultant brought in to advise the department on the ongoing investigation into the April 15, 2017, killing of Humboldt State University sophomore David Josiah Lawson, who was 19. Reached after news broke of Chapman’s resignation, Tom Parker, the former FBI agent who had been volunteering his services pro-bono as a consultant on the Lawson case, confirmed that he’d “regrettably terminated” his contract with the city April 9 and was stepping away from assisting the investigation. Parker declined to discuss any details of his decision or Chapman’s resignation, other than to say he’d become “frustrated with a lack of cooperation” in the case. Asked if he’d consider coming back into the case now that Chapman has resigned his post, Parker said “that would have to be a topic of further discussion and negotiations with the city.” The resignations come as the anniversary of Lawson’s still unsolved killing approaches and amid an escalating outcry from HSU students and community members who have been critical of the city’s handling of the investigation. A student-led 12 days of action — with each day representing a month that Lawson’s killing has gone unsolved — remains ongoing, with a celebration of life planned for
Students hang a “Justice for Josiah” banner on the Humboldt State University quad. At the rally, organizers encouraged those in attendance to scrawl messages of hope, unity and protest on it. Mark McKenna Lawson Sunday at the D Street Community Center in Arcata. Throughout last week, student protests gripped the HSU campus. On April 6, a male student lay splayed on his back, his hands folded in front of him, purple bruises covering his right eye and blood dripping from his nose, the work of a couple of make-up artists from the theater department. His female counterpart lay next to him motionless on her side, with a deep gash across her forehead, a trickle of blood falling from her split lip. Behind them, two students stood century with signs. “This is what happens to (People of Color) on campus!” read one. “Protect your children!” read the other. The silent protest was taking place outside Humboldt State University’s “The J” dining commons on campus during a Spring Preview event for prospective students and their families, many of whom filed by the grisly scene. Some stopped to inquire what it was all about. A couple of student tour guides halted their regular itinerary in order to explain to the prospective students and their families what they were seeing. Lawson’s killing is currently Arcata’s only open homicide case going back decades and, from the start, it has fissured a community already rife with racial tensions. As Lawson lay bleeding to death from two stab wounds shortly after 3 a.m. on April 15, police found 23-year-old Kyle Zoellner, a McKinleyville man, battered and beaten at the scene and — after people on scene fingered him as Lawson’s assailant — arrested him on suspicion of murder. Almost immediately, the case took on racial overtones as Lawson was black and Zoellner is white. One of Lawson’s
friends publicly alleged racial bias hampered efforts to get Lawson to a hospital in time to save his life and others alleged Zoellner’s girlfriend used a racial slur to describe Lawson as he lay bleeding, saying she hoped he would die. The stabbing didn’t occur in a vacuum. About a year and a half prior, two female black students reported that they were in downtown Arcata when two unidentified white men in a truck threw a beer bottle at them before continuing to “taunt, harass and chase them.” HSU President Lisa Rossbacher responded to the incident by sending out a campuswide letter saying the assault was racially motivated and not the first “incident like this” to happen on campus or in the community. “Harassment based on race, gender or other characteristics continues to be a serious problem,” she wrote. About a year later, Rossbacher drew widespread backlash on campus when she sent another letter to faculty and students stating that “racism is not a norm on campus.” In October of 2016, the university convened a couple forums on racism, both of which were widely attended and saw frustrated students speak out about what they deemed pervasive instances of overt and subtle racism in the community, and blasted the university administration for not doing more to support students of color. With that history as a backdrop, some quickly came to see Lawson’s killing as a potentially preventable result of unheeded warnings. Tensions escalated further on May 4, 2017, when after a two-week hearing that saw dozens of witnesses testify, Humboldt County Superior Court Judge Dale
Reinholtsen found police and prosecutors had gathered insufficient evidence to hold Zoellner to stand trial on the charge that he’d murdered Lawson and ordered him released from custody. Reinholtsen explained that there was no physical evidence linking Zoellner to Lawson’s killing and, while numerous witnesses testified that the two men had been engaged in a fight, along with others, no one said they had actually seen the stabbing. A string of protests followed the ruling, with hundreds of people marching through campus, the streets of Arcata and congregating on the plaza. In the following weeks, demonstrators would flood Arcata City Council chambers during meetings to demand updates on the investigation into Lawson’s death and action to ensure people of color are safe in the community. The city later agreed to offer regular Lawson case updates in a separate forum but that seemed to add to simmering frustrations when the police department released only very limited information, citing the need to protect the integrity of the ongoing homicide investigation. Over the ensuing months, the city also held a series of dialogues on race, which saw students and community members of color step to the microphone to describe feeling unsafe and discriminated against in the community. At the last such meeting in March, some questioned why minorities are being asked to repeatedly and publicly revisit these traumas in order to validate that the problem is real and pervasive. And throughout all this, the Arcata Police Department’s investigation has quietly continued with Zoellner remainContinued on next page »

ing the only publicly named suspect. The department released its last public update on the case in February, reporting that it continues to work “through a defined investigative strategy based on all the physical evidence and witness statements, much of which has been developed after” Zoellner was released from custody in the case. Additionally, the department reported that it has interviewed almost four dozen people as a part of its investigation. Back in August, then-Police Chief Tom Chapman said the California Department of Justice’s crime lab had returned some forensic testing results, some of which were “very valuable,” adding that one “key piece of evidence” would necessitate further DNA testing. The department also agreed last fall to work with Parker, a 73-year old former FBI agent who most notably led the bureau’s investigations into the Rodney King beating and the Rampart scandal in the Los Angeles Police Department. Parker was given access to the complete investigative file in the Lawson case in order to give APD feedback and advice, Chapman said. Parker has now walked away frustrated and Chapman, who had pleaded for patience in the investigation, has resigned. And on campus, anyway, patience seems in short supply. On April 5, students walked out of class and gathered in the pouring rain on the university quad to hold a rally. Huddled under umbrellas, the students pressed a couple of university administrators in attendance for answers. They asked where Rossbacher was, why she hadn’t been attending the community dialogues on race. They pressed for answers on what the university was doing to keep pressure on the police to resolve the case. They chanted Lawson’s name. They demanded to know why their administrators deserved their faith any longer. HSU Vice President of Academic Affairs
Alex Enyedi stepped up to address the crowd. “I believe with all my heart in justice for Josiah,” Enyedi said, explaining that in the days after Lawson’s death, he was one of the first representatives to meet with Lawson’s mother. “We talked about David, we talked about the tragedy and we cried and we cried.” Enyedi paused, clearly emotional. “This thing has hit me really hard and I understand your grief and I understand your anger, because it pisses me off, too,” he said. “I understand it shouldn’t take this long and I understand there needs to be more done. … I feel your pain. I understand the frustration.” A few moments later, student Barbara Singelton picked up a megaphone and urged those gathered to stay engaged, to stay active and to keep pushing. “The fact of the matter is he was a student, he was murdered and it could have been any of us,” Singleton said. On the anniversary of Lawson’s death, students and community members will gather on the Arcata Plaza at 3:30 p.m. for a vigil before walking to the D Street Community Center, where a celebration of his life will be held from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets for the evening — which will feature music and Jamaican and soul food — are $3 for students and $5 for community members, with proceeds going toward “continuing investigation efforts.” For more information, contact the HSU African American Center for Academic Excellence at 826-4588. Meanwhile, what Chapman and Parker’s departures mean for the Lawson investigation remained unclear as the Journal went to press. l Thadeus Greenson is the Journal’s news editor.

Activists work to get national attention, one hashtag at a time By Collin Yeo
hey sat in a group in the small living room of an Arcata apartment one afternoon in late March, scattered across a couch and the floor. They were all in their early 20s, students at either College of the Redwoods or Humboldt State University. With laptops and cellphones at their hands, they tapped away in studious attention as a young woman called out email address and Twitter handles. There were five of them, including three of non-white ethnicities. Cookies sat on the nearby coffee table and a cat walked around the room, purring at the distracted pets from guests fixated on their screens. The young woman giving out the information broke momentarily from her task. “I can make coffee. Does anyone else want some?” The woman, Rain Flotho, a 22-year-old student at CR, organized this event and volunteered her apartment for the day’s effort. She had been calling out email addresses, Twitter handles and Facebook pages for a half-hour as her guests typed
away and pensively munched snacks. The gathering came as a part of an ongoing effort at bringing national attention to the death of 19-year-old HSU sophomore David Josiah Lawson, who was fatally stabbed at an off-campus party April 15, 2017, and whose killing remains unsolved. The idea is simple: Under the hashtag #JusticeforJosiah, the people gathered, along with others participating remotely, to send out information about the nearly year-old homicide case that they want to keep from going cold. They are targeting their messages to prominent members of civil rights and social movements, as well as journalists who cover social justice issues in the national press. For Flotho, the project is personal and was spontaneously born out of frustration and a desire to do something about Lawson’s killing, which she feared to be losing traction in both the local media and the criminal justice system. “Over winter break, I was reading up Continued on page 18 »

more about the case and I felt really devastated, so I just started emailing people,” Flotho says. “And I thought that no one was going to notice my one email but I kept doing it and I felt that it would be really effective if a bunch of people did this at the same time. There’s, like, a hope that this would get out there.” Flotho points out that social media activism has been effective, noting the hashtag origins of the Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street movements. “I feel like I am just learning as I am going, but it’s something that I felt like needed to happen and it’s one of the only things that I could really think to do to get our voices heard,” she says. “[Social media] can be a way where people who feel like they are not being supported can get the word out.” Tony Silvaggio, an assistant professor in Humboldt State University’s Sociology Department specializing in social movements and community organizing, sees the positive potential of grassroots social media activism. “Social media and online platforms certainly have some positive effects, as they play a major role in helping activists [and] movements spread their message to the wider public,” Silvaggio says. “We saw that in the Arab Spring and during the protests over the Dakota Access Pipeline, with activists using online platforms to dispute state propaganda and false information about what was happening on the ground. It can be a very effective tool for movements to frame their issues clearly and provide a space for movements and activists to engage with one another, disseminate information, share videos and photos.” About a half-dozen people attended another social media push organized by Flotho, this one on the HSU campus earlier this month. The students, who requested not to be named for fear of backlash from the public and school administrators, all voiced a top-down frustration with the handling of the case by police and the response from local officials. When asked if race was a factor in the unsolved status of the investigation, assent was unanimous. Similarly, all present voiced a distrust of the police and city government’s response to Lawson’s killing, and were critical of the institutions’ ability to provide safety and justice for people of color living in the community. When asked why they felt uncom-
fortable using their names in the press, the students’ responses varied. One non-binary student mentioned that as a non-African American person, they didn’t want to be a dominating presence in a discussion they felt should be headed by African Americans. Another student noted that she had heard first-hand accounts of other activists and non-white students being harassed by members of the public. One young woman mentioned that the amount of scrutiny being levelled toward student activists by the university administrators made her cautious about having her name attached to any activism, no matter how legal or benign. Others voiced frustration at what they felt were unfair portrayals of activists in the local press. The social media campaign has already drawn some attention. In the days since Flotho organized the first event at her apartment March 21, she has gotten a response from prominent civil rights activist Shaun King. Johnetta Elzie, a Twitter activist and Black Lives Matter leader who helped organize the Ferguson, Missouri, response to the police shooting of Michael Brown, has tweeted about Lawson’s case numerous times. The website www.afropunk.com, an aggregator of African-American music, culture and news, published a piece Flotho wrote about the killing. And that is just in the last few weeks. But there’s the sense that things aren’t getting better locally. April 15 will mark the year anniversary of Lawsons’ death and many feel there are no signs of justice on the horizon. And Flotho and others worry the case will remain unsolved, alleging it has been mishandled by police. Flotho says she plans to move away from Humboldt, seeking a more diverse environment, which gives her some freedom to speak out. “[The Lawson case] means a lot,” she says. “For me, I know what it is like to be a person of color here, a black student, and it’s not fucking fun. I am doing this now because I feel like if I were going to be here longer, it really wouldn’t be safe for me. A lot of activists have experience with being targeted and threatened, which is why a lot of people usually don’t want to put their name on stuff.” l Collin Yeo writes the Journal’s weekly Setlist music column. He lives in Arcata.

‘We Are Your Community’ An effort born from tragedy seeks to bridge the campuscommunity divide By Thadeus Greenson
t first blush, Erin Youngblood-Smith and Amy Mathieson couldn’t be more different. And that could have been a problem. A white woman born and raised in rural Montana, Mathieson moved with her family to McKinleyville at 16 when her father, a pastor in the Baptist church, got a job there. She never really experienced diversity until she stepped onto the Humboldt State University campus to study psychology. After graduating, Mathieson was inspired to work with addicts and at-risk populations after a loved one’s overdose death. She found herself Googling, “How do I work with substance abusers,” and decided to pursue her masters in social work. In contrast, Youngblood-Smith, a black woman, grew up in Oakland in the center of the culturally, ethnically and racially diverse Bay Area and spent some years working for an airline after high school. Inspired by a teacher at Merritt College in Oakland, Youngblood-Smith went on to earn an African American History degree from the University of California at Berkeley and set her sights on a master’s in social work degree, viewing it as a stepping stone toward becoming a teacher. When the two met, having joined a cohort of 10 students in HSU’s master’s in social work program, they were paired for an internship working with dependency attorneys in the county courthouse. They
quickly found that despite their differences — religion, race, geography, upbringing — they were both outspoken, passionate and loud, with a similar sense of humor, and the same basic goals in life. “We just clicked,” Mathieson says. “Our differences didn’t divide,” Youngblood-Smith says. “I think that can be said of a lot of people once you get the opportunity to learn about each other from each other.” The two became close friends and, although they didn’t know it at the time, their final project for their social work program began to take root. Over the ensuing months, the pair would meet for “wine Wednesdays” and talk. Often, their conversations turned toward the growing discord on campus regarding how students of color felt they were treated when out in the community. The two shared their perspectives, with Mathieson talking about the good she knows is in the local community and Youngblood-Smith sharing how, while she hasn’t been the target of overt acts of racism, she’s felt the cumulative, exhausting impacts of micro-aggressions — instances when she was treated differently than the white people around her. Mathieson and Youngblood-Smith say they often talked about how to change this dynamic locally, how to impress upon community members how students of color are sometimes made to feel, how

Sam Armanino to change whatever it is about the local culture that empowers some to treat people differently based on skin color. What the community needed, they felt, was a media campaign that specifically celebrated the diversity students of color bring to Humboldt. Then tragedy struck. David Josiah Lawson was stabbed to death at an off-campus party April 15, 2017. The news hit Youngblood-Smith hard. “I was considering moving home,” she says. But seeing how hard Mathieson was also hit by Lawson’s death gave her hope. The pair decided they needed to do something and decided to use their master’s project as the vehicle.
In order to get a master’s in social work through HSU, each student has to complete a “sustainable project that meets a community need.” The program offers no clearer direction than that and Mathieson and Youngblood-Smith felt they had their project. They decided to highlight the experiences of four HSU students of color in a media campaign that would underscore that while they love many of the same things about Humboldt as their white counterparts, they experience the local community very differently. A year later, the campaign is in full swing. About 22 Arcata businesses now Continued on next page »

have posters hanging in their windows with the smiling face of a black student. Next to the photos are a few lines of text offering the student’s major, something he or she loves about the local area and how they connect with community. While the posters are upbeat and hopeful, the accompanying videos — uploaded to the We Are Your Community Facebook page — offer more of a gut punch. There’s Dani, a 24 year old from Los Angeles, who says she was drawn to HSU because she loved the trees and the clean air. “I decided to attend HSU because I felt it was away from the noise, the chatter, the busy life of Los Angeles and I felt like it would be better for me mentally, spiritually, holistically,” she says. But Dani later adds that she feels like her “body has been criminalized” living here, recounting instances when she’s walked past white people on the street only to feel them freeze up or “clutch their pearls, so to speak.” She says she’s felt “unwelcome” to the point that she’s not really comfortable leaving campus and going out in the community. There’s Angel, a 20 year old from the Bay Area, who says she was excited to come to HSU because it was a “school in a forest” and the only college that accepted her and also offered free housing. With a beaming smile, she says she likes to go to the forest to write poetry. But she also says she feels like she’s living in a racist community, recounting times when people have come up and touched her hair and asked if it was real, when she wore a scarf wrapped around her hair to class only to have a professor ask if all black people wear do-rags and another instance when she heard a clerk tell another store employee to “check the cameras” when she left a local pharmacy. “I just feel like when I walk in the community people just look down on me,” she says, adding that it has affected her studies. “I will probably withdraw from my classes this semester because it’s so hard living here. … I am leaving. I don’t feel safe here. I don’t feel like this place is for me.” And there’s Jibril, a 27-year-old HSU graduate from Oakland who will be enrolling in the master’s in social work program in the summer and has been working with local youth as a social services provider. Rather than a videotaped interview, Jibril reads a poem he wrote. “You might want to be mindful of how y’all treat people here, because I’m someone who tells your kids what’s wrong or right, I teach your kids life skills, kids coming up to me with their darkest secrets telling me everything about their lives and
I know this community inside out,” Jibril says. “I sometimes question why I’m fighting for this community when I’m treated at times like shit, I’m told by people I talk funny, I act funny, I act wrong, I drive the wrong car, I spend my money wrong. When you have money, they ask how you got it like your job doesn’t pay.” In an interview with the Journal, Jibril says he agreed to participate in the project because of the people involved — Youngblood-Smith and Mathieson. And he believed in what they were trying to do. Jibril says he likes it in Humboldt and has met a lot of good people. But he also thinks it’s important for the larger community to hear students’ stories, to understand how some students of color are made to feel here. “This is their story,” he says. “You don’t have to like it and you don’t have to love it, they’re just letting people know what it is.” For their parts, Youngblood-Smith and Mathieson are busily preparing for the culmination of their project — a “Diversity Day” event at the Arcata farmers market that will have a variety of organizations tabling, cultural demonstrations, a children’s area where volunteers will be reading an assortment of culturally diverse stories. The idea, Mathieson says, is to celebrate diversity and get white community members to “think about what we can do as a community to be allies to people of color.” The pair say they are proud of the project, proud of the response it’s getting in Arcata and, most of all, proud of the students who participated. They hope it will be a catalyst for future change and they hope someone will step in to sustain it. But in the meantime, they’re happy to have had the chance to show that — like their friendship —if people would just sit down and get to know each other, they might find out they have a lot more in common than they might think. It’s a note that Jibril hit in the closing lines of his poem. “I would just say that we are Humboldt,” he says. “We breath the North Coast air. We enjoy Moonstone Beach, just as you. We enjoy climbing Strawberry Rock, just as you. We love listening to the birds chirp and the ocean air, the silence in the mountains. We go to Headwaters, we use the ocean, just as you. We enjoy the redwoods, just as you.” l Thadeus Greenson is the Journal’s news editor. Reach him at 442-1400, extension 321, or email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @thadeusgreenson.
Breakup Letter from President McKinley’s Statue By Jennifer Fumiko Cahilll firstname.lastname@example.org
Breaking up is tough when you’ve got history. Photo illustration by Miles Eggleston
I didn’t want to do this by letter but I know if I try to get this all out in person, I’ll freeze up. We’ve had a good run together — a century! — and I just think it’s time to move on. For a while now I’ve felt — what’s the word? Stuck. Getting shot in the gut makes a man think. And I’ve had 112 years up here to mull things over. Anybody who says they have no regrets is nuts. Before you fight me on that, let’s remember I had a front row seat when you got tossed from Everett’s for clogging up the jukebox with Def Leppard. Yeah. Just be glad nobody cast you in bronze while you were wearing that sleeveless half shirt. Meanwhile I’m over here drowning in a long coat that makes me look like that shrimp James Madison. Listen, it’s not you; it’s me. I’ve changed. Maybe after gazing down at a couple dozen war protests and homeless veterans sleeping rough at my feet I’m feeling a little less hawkish, less reckless about human life. Maybe standing in the middle of Wiyot land and seeing firsthand the murder and misery my policies wrought, I’m not so proud. And yet here I am, frozen with this look of conviction on my face and the Women’s Peace Vigil over there judging. Yeah, I know you’re over there, ladies. Every goddamn week. We’ve had some good times together, Arcata, but it hasn’t all been family picnics on the grass. I’ve been egged, climbed and covered in Silly String, strewn with condoms and dressed up like a purse dog. I’ve lost count of the number of penises that have been drawn on me. Losing your thumb and standing stock still while people hunt for it like a bronze Easter egg isn’t dignified, folks. And I’ll tell you something else — the thumb they sol-
dered back on my hand? Not mine. I think I know my own damn thumb. The rain out here is terrible. And so is the endless parade of dudes with poi sticks. And when some guy on the plaza starts talking about chem trails, maybe you can brush him off but I can’t escape. I’m literally welded in place for the whole fucking spiel. For the love of God, let me go. When I was younger and, you know, alive, I was more ambitious. Now I wish I’d just coasted through my term, cut the ribbon on the presidential library, maybe done a little public speaking. If I hadn’t gotten shot, I could have slipped into the mists of history between Roosevelt and Lincoln. I could have gone out like Chester A. Arthur or Millard Fillmore — the ones they skip in school plays. They’re not on money and only the hardcore nerds remember them, much less all the bad shit they did. And those two? Both assholes. I mean that on a historical and personal level because between you and me, even in the afterlife they’re pretty smug for a couple of guys named Chester and Millard. But have you seen a statue of them? No. So nobody’s coming after them for the Chinese Exclusion Act or enforcing the Fugitive Slave Act. Those bastards have it made. I hear there’s a petition going around and a group of concerned citizens out to keep me right where I am. Hey, I’m flattered, but we’ve both got to move on. Ask yourself — and remember this is me you’re talking to — how much do you really care about me, like, for me? I mean, you just didn’t seem that into me until you heard I might leave. Do you even like me as a sculpture? I’ve seen how you look at that giant flaming octopus. Is it possible you’re holding on this tightly because deep down you know it’s over? We both deserve better than that. I may
not be perfect but I deserve to be in a museum or a weird private home or a mini golf course that really wants me, not just a symbol of a past that felt comfortable for you. Frankly, some of the guys rooting for us to stay together are creeping me out. First that debate team dropout Tucker Carlson on Fox News came out Team McKata, then Karl Rove poked his head out of his haunted mansion to croak out his support. Does it not bother you that a professional racist like Richard Spencer is in our cheering section? I’d punch him myself if I thought this thumb would hold. Arcata, we’ve got history and that’s not going away. Where we go from here is part of our history, too. You’re still a fun, attractive town and there are plenty of other statues out there for who you are

now, who’ll grow with you. I’ll take the blame for our breakup since what I did in life, hey, that’s on me. But you’ve got to take me off this pedestal.

ith beer geekery on full display, the Humboldt Homebrew Festival might be the North Coast’s most interesting beer party. A showcase for a large and dedicated amateur brewing community in Humboldt County and beyond, the festival sees inventive and off-the-wall notions come to life, as well as solid examples of traditional beer and cider styles. Even with a commercial craft brewing industry that’s given every gas station a great beer selection, the festival — featuring 69 homebrewers and more than 100 different beers, ciders and kombuchas flowing from bottles, kegs and barrels — gives thirsty folks a glimpse at what’s trending in barns and kitchens around Humboldt and beyond. Some of those follow wider trends. The big “new” style at this year’s festival was East Coast IPA, a juicy, unfiltered brew that has taken the craft brew market by storm in the last year or so. There were a couple of good examples, even though haziness, until a few years ago, indicated a mistake in the brewing process. Like Silly Putty, I guess you never know what happy accidents will become a fad. I appreciated a few throwbacks to the trends of yesteryear: There were a few tasty black IPAs, a couple of common
beers and, of course, plenty of hopheavy IPAs. Fruit had a big showing. I’m a fan of fruit-aged sour beers, less so of fruit in other beer styles. Kevin Naset’s table — always a stop recommended by the other homebrewers — offered a deliciously tart elderberry brew. But despite the increased popularity of sour styles, not many were at the festival this year. Ciders had a moment, though, and I counted only one apple among them. There were mango, peach and blueberry varieties, and two standouts made from kiwi and pineapple. “The Elvis,” a peanut butter banana porter, couldn’t quite get the moves right but the banana definitely came through. A barrel-aged maple stout was downright syrupy — it felt like drinking a port — and went well with the bacon bits the brewers were handing out. The inevitable Big Lebowski reference — a Kahlua-infused milk stout after The Dude’s affinity for white Russians — missed its mark but I commend the effort. Milk stouts — brewed with lactose for a smooth, creamy finish — were having a bit of a moment, too. One hazy version featured mangoes, vanilla and strawberries in a nod to milkshakes.

Chili pepper-infused beers made a bit of comeback, as well. One highlight was Kara Bennett’s jalapeño saison, which had a light, crisp flavor and just enough heat to make it pop. Already having cooked my palate, I skipped her accompanying garlic and herb saison, and now I’m having remorse. My favorite strange and ambitious beer that totally worked was Michael Kraft’s Mexican coffee cream ale — a perfectly balanced and unusual American cream ale with cold brew coffee, chili, cinnamon and cocoa nibs. The heat was much subtler than other chili brews, complementing the rich smoothness. Other standouts were bottle competition winner Kenneth Berry’s Belgian dark strong ale, one of the bigger beers of the day at 10.35 percent. A good example of a classic, Berry’s beer may have stood out because it went with a traditional style that was not well represented at the festival. His brewing partner, Caitlin Hoy, also made a showing with her hoppppy IPA, based off of Booth Brewing’s Kukmin IPA. Using a Lost Coast experimental hop and ingredients from other local breweries, it was a tasty mashup of our commercial big shots. If there were an award for pageantry, it would’ve gone to the team of Girl Scoutthemed brewers at “Camp Wanna’beer,” who named and brewed their beers after Girl Scout cookie varieties. I started with the one simply labeled “drank,” which was Kool-aid-y, for lack of a better term. I didn’t try the s’more beer, though, because while this festival is an opportunity to try outrageous beers, I have to draw the line at those that taste like things I don’t like in their original corporeal form. For the creative anachronism set, Doug

Hickey’s sour “flip” was a hot, mulled, mixed fermentation sour beer that was surprisingly welcome. Based on the historical pub tradition of sticking a hot poker in a mug of beer to heat it up, the flat, spiced beer was tea-like, herby and barely sweet. This would not fly in July, but it felt like a suitable drink for our wintery spring. When I’m getting in the mood for holiday drinks in the fall, I’ll be Googling around for flips and other warm ales. The beauty of putting a bunch of excited homebrewers in a room together is that no one’s trying to sell anything. All that’s on the line is a good time and the (hopefully good) reactions of your friends and neighbors. And if it makes homebrewing seem easy — that’s because it is. With more brewers every year, and increasing diversity in brewers and attendees, we should all hope this inspires more and more DIY brewing. Cheers!

n Dominique Birdsong’s painting “Temporality,” a young African-American woman appears from the neckline up against a luminous backdrop of 1980s teal. A mandala in a deeper shade of teal blooms behind her head, throwing the kinky strands of her short Afro into relief. Her face is rendered in flatly painted passages of acrylic paint, with each sequence of closely related hues, from cocoa to taupe, delineating a single plane. The effect is machine-like but low-tech, (707) 443-7339 recalling the rote technique of midcentury paint-by-number projects as well as the characteristic pixellated appearance of early computer graphics. Birdsong’s subject poses in three-quarter view, her head tilted as if she is about to engage the viewer in conversation. The effect is almost engaging enough to distract from the fact that something terrible seems to be happening to her face. The part that’s closest to the viewer has been violently rearranged in a way that feels disconcertingly familiar from our experience with images on screens. The edges of forms appear to crumble or disintegrate, revealing stepped contours: We’re in the realm of pixels here, not flesh. A matrix of brushmarks in an aggressively unnatural palette of lavender and mauve seems to be expanding, viruslike, from some central point of contagion. The architecture of the subject’s face breaks down; from somewhere in the cheekbone vicinity, a fragmentary second form emerges. The face of a young woman with dark hair and light skin takes shape. Does the double consciousness depicted here come from without or within? Is this accessory face a digital succubus engaged in an excruciatingly personal act of colonization? Or is it a figment of the character’s own psyche? Birdsong’s portrait prompts these questions even as it activates a host of cinematic allusions: from the double negative effects in the climactic scene of Ingmar Bergman’s Per-

sona to that scene in Terminator II where Arnold Schwarzenegger strips back flesh to reveal android circuitry, to the effects in last year’s horror blockbuster Get Out, in which black people’s minds and spirits are consigned to a “sunken place” and forced to passively witness while their bodies and speech are appropriated to perpetuate a racist culture of white supremacy. Birdsong’s painting is a high point, but there are plenty of strong works in this month’s exhibition at the Arcata Sanctuary, titled Future Formers: A Visual Art Exhibition of College of the Redwoods Alumni at the Sanctuary. Shannon Sullivan, a ceramics artist and art professor at CR, curated the show by drawing on the extensive network of contacts she has made in 11 years of teaching, focusing on former students and recent graduates. Participating artists include Carissa Clark, Genevieve Kjesbu, Janiel Giraldo, Jessica Swan, Katharine Payne, Katie Holt, Keith Fleury, Meredith Smith, Michael B. Rude, Philip Kumsar, Shawn Frost, Sue Kimpel and Samantha Williams-Gray, all of whom live in the area and have studied with Sullivan within the past five years. Works of art include narrative ceramic masks, ink drawings, ceramics, portraits, woven textile panels, mono-printed ceramic tablets and metal sculptures. The artists place emphasis on the low-tech,
homegrown and handmade. Surfaces are gnarly and a wabi-sabi ethos of imperfect and impermanent beauty reigns. Survey exhibitions like this one are valuable, in part, because they give viewers the opportunity to make sense of regional tendencies. Tropes become apparent both in terms of choices made and not made. What artists collectively don’t make is just as striking as the shared themes that emerge. In this case, the absence of video or animation reflects our region’s remoteness and that penchant for the crunchy that is manifested at all levels of the local arts, but it also reflects the degree to which electronic media have yet to make much of an impact on local arts education. At the same time, Birdsong’s media critique reminds us that sometimes a work of art can bring out the conversation surrounding screen culture and self-image without deploying anything more hightech than acrylic paint and wood. The show Future Formers: A Visual Art Exhibition of College of the Redwoods Alumni will be on display at the Sanctuary from April 2-May 27. A public reception for the artists will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, April 13. For more information, contact the Sanctuary at 822-0898 or visit www.sanctuaryarcata.org. l
Knock, Knock, Knock on Wood By Collin Yeo
his is a special week because this one has — cue the Theremin music — a Friday the 13th in it! Ooooh. Ahhhh. Spooky. Why is Friday the 13th especially spooky exactly? Ask five different people and unless you get any overlap on the “I honestly have no idea” response, you are very likely to get five different answers. You might hear something about the Knights Templar being betrayed and executed, or the number of knots in the hangman’s rope for a very special someone from history. In fact, if you are in certain countries, you might hear a greater emphasis put on Tuesday the 13th or Friday the 17th. Like most superstitions, we all seem to know the what but not necessarily the why. I would argue not only does the latter not matter, but it gets in the way of some good old creepy fun. Our shared superstitions are best as little notes and eerie threnodies punctuating our lives. They serve as ghostly companions to our rote religious practices and secular routines — the salt thrown over our shoulders as we knock on the wood of the ladders we don’t walk under. Only I think that last one is practical: Anyone who has worked construction knows you don’t walk under a ladder. After all, you might have a mirror dropped on you that an umbrella opened indoors couldn’t stop from breaking and cursing you to seven years of bad luck and clichés. I promise on the cracks in the sidewalk upon which I don’t walk on that I won’t do this again until July, when we have our last Friday the 13th of 2018. Have a nice week.
Thursday Remember all of the superstitious paranoia surrounding outer space? From the pre-space age fear of invasion that hit an apocryphal peak during Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds radio broadcast to the moon landing-era fear of returning spacecraft and satellites bringing game changing radiation back from the vacuum — watch George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead
for further information — we have long been suspicious of the final frontier and its contents. Gird yourself tonight and face those fears head on with an evening of awesomeness when The Siren’s Song is invaded at 8 p.m. by returning space-rock conquerors Paleons with help local cosmonauts Ultramafic and Knot Ewe. $5.
Friday Apart from the spooky mumbo jumbo about Friday the 13th mentioned earlier, the day Friday itself is named after the Scando-Germanic goddess Freya (or Frigga or Frija) who, aside from being married to ultra-god Odin, was also considered to be a sort of barbarian version of the goddess Venus by the Romans. Love personified: What’s not to be feared? Fear not though, gentle readers, it’s Arts Arcata night and here are three aprés art-stroll shows to help your heart go tick tock regularly. Fantastic roots-rock maestros Kingfoot play a free show at Redwood Curtain Brewery at 8 p.m. Maybe start a new tradition for the 13th of the month at The Jam for $5 at 9 p.m. with local reggae jammers New Traditions, as the band plays the supporting role for Jamaican vocalist Prince Levy. And finally, head over to The Griffin to hear DJ Goldylocks and East One spin fat wax tracks for a special free Arts After Dark session. Am I the only one who thinks that sounds like a WW II-era jazz tune? It’s also at 9 p.m., by the way.
Local singer-songwriter Melanie Barnett hosts a special album release show for her debut Grayscale at the Sanctuary tonight at 7 p.m. Just $10 gets you in the door with a CD in hand and do not worry, I am told by the artist that the album is named after the complex moral shades of gray in our lives and not the zombifying leprosy disease in Game of Thrones so you will not require any special cleansing afterward. Meanwhile, down south at The Mateel, you can spend $25 to see Andre Nickatina
Melanie Barnett plays the Sanctuary on Saturday, April 14 at 7 p.m. Photo by Beau Saunders, courtesy of the artist
work his way through his deep catalog of tracks at 7 p.m. I am not a gambling man but I do study history and if it repeats itself then the odds are good that opener Smoove-E will be the more exciting act to see live. Finally, tonight the fates have convened to deliver us a show at 11 p.m. at The Alibi with two local bands that just belong together. Hollow Down is a fuzzy trio that sounds like a rockabilly band if it dropped the bullshit greaser act and just got high and cool, and Opossum Sun Trail is a San Pedro cactus growing out of the skull that is your eternal youth in love with an endless summer of music ($5). Ahhh.
Sunday The Outer Space has a really good rock show going on tonight at 7 p.m. when Seattle’s own grunged-out riff-lord power trio Wild Powwers comes to town. Local support is provided by Arcata’s perfect little “frog”-rock band Frog and Eureka’s own The Handies playing their first gig ($6).
Monday At 8 p.m. the Arcata Playhouse hosts NYC musician Ryan Keberle and his quintet Catharsis for an evening of protest-charged jazz played by some of the very best and brightest on the scene (price TBA). An hour later at the Miniplex, you can dance your … well I don’t want to say dance your ass off because that makes no sense really. Have you seen professional dancers? They usually have a pretty shapely anchor filling out the back end of their Anchor Blues, so that saying makes no sense. Anyway, you can dance toward whichever goal makes the most sense at
this electro dance-stravaganza as Oakland’s Diesel Dudes descend with Los Angeles’ Sashcloth & Axes to bring the fun, fun, fun. Arcata’s strutting metronomic muses Grocery Outlit provides local support ($5).
Instrumental funk eight-piece Polyrhythmics plays a fusion of Afrobeat-influenced tightness tonight at Humbrews at 9 p.m. ($15). Paired perfectly with this fusion machine is Ghost Note, an offshoot of Brooklyn-based jazz and jam master act Snarky Puppy and led by the latter’s beat makers, drummer Sput Searight and percussionist Nate Werth.
Wednesday Stones Throw Records artist and founder of tastemakers the Klipmode Collective, MNDSGN is a tough artist to define. Part hip-hop producer and part composer/ brainiac, the Los Angeles-based beat farmer has made a name for himself on the fringes of the game for a decade now. He brings a brand new trio to the Van Duzer tonight at 8 p.m. make the place shake and groove like a Martian living room. Fellow traveler Swarvy opens ($15). 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. l Collin Yeo belongs in the stars but he’ll gladly settle for a cabin in the sky. Maybe even a duplex on a raincloud. He lives in Arcata.

Mia McKenzie’s visit couldn’t come at a better time. The author of Black Girl Dangerous, will be doing a book signing at College of the Redwoods on Thursday, April 12 at 6 p.m. in Humanities Room 129 for a talk and Q&A. McKenzie’s novel, The Summer We Got Free won the 2013 Lambda Literary Award for debut fiction and has been nominated for a number of literary prizes. McKenzie writes about race, gender, queerness, class and their intersections, and Black Girl Dangerous is a pointed, poignant, fiery collection of essays and blog posts previously published on the website she founded, www. blackgirldangerous.com. McKenzie’s way of melding her quirky brand of sarcasm and raw, focused social analysis sets this collection apart. It is both unique and fresh, featuring straightforward titles like, “White Silence,” “On Rape, Cages, and the Steubenville Verdict,” “To the Queer Black Kids,” “4 Ways to Push Back Against Your Privilege” and “The Myth of Shared Womanhood and How It Perpetuates Inequality.” She also has a knack for creating lists that call attention to the hypocrisies and inequities of American society that are so relevant today. McKenzie’s visit seems especially timely as the removal of Arcata’s statue of President McKinley is garnering national attention and local racial tensions are at the forefront during student and community protests over the investigation into the killing of Humboldt State University student David Josiah Lawson last year. — Donel Arrington

Silence is Golden
And flipping a teen sex comedy is risky By John J. Bennett

Browse by title, times and theater. northcoastjournal.com
A QUIET PLACE. I’ve probably written more than one ought to about the state of contemporary horror movies and my on-again, off-again love affair with them. For a time, the genre seemed like it might be a bellwether of an upwelling of creativity in American cinema. It looked like a return to the rough and tumble birth of the “independent” movement in the 1970s and its golden age in the 1990s, when inventiveness, drive and ingenuity might, for a minute, have been more important than profit and loss (well, almost). Now it seems like a quaint, naively optimistic perspective. For a moment, though, low-budget horror seemed like the outlier that could be a catalyst to revolution. And then every Marvel movie went on to make a gazillion dollars internationally and it began to feel like all hope was lost, all over again. The truth is probably less dramatic than all that. Despite efforts in the right direction, the mainstream, mega-budget part of the movie business isn’t going anywhere. The audience has been conditioned to want and expect certain things from the theater experience (to covet products, basically) and those things are delivered with consistent frequency and quality. Give the people what they want. Or train the people to want what you’ve got, and then sell it to them over and over and over again. In the midst of this crushing testament to open-market capitalism, though, small-to mid-budget movies, modest endeavors of the imagination, do seem to making something of a comeback. The horror movement may have sparked a revolution, after all — just a slower, gentler one than I might have liked. As part of what is hopefully an actual progressive movement in mainstream movies, we get things like A Quiet Place, an inventive, smart, scary, modestly-scaled

movie that enlarges and transcends genre by adhering to its tenets. It is a mid-sized horror picture and in that alone there is mass appeal. But it is also deceptively well-executed, emotionally honest and subtly innovative. It’s scary and entertaining but also quite good. In the very near future, the world (or at least much of the U.S. but it’s hard to say) has been set upon by nasty beasties of indeterminate origin. Blind, gigantic, vaguely arachnoid, they hunt with hypersensitive auditory organs, and they’re frighteningly good at it. What remains of humanity has been driven underground, subsisting in terrified silence. Among the survivors is the Abbott family. Mom Evelyn (Emily Blunt), dad Lee (John Krasinski), older daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds) and younger son Marcus (Noah Jupe) have managed to carve out a relatively comfortable existence on an isolated farm. Due to Regan’s presumably congenital deafness, the family is conversant in sign language and better able than most to fend for themselves, absent the conveniences of modern society. Still, they’ve suffered tragic loss, straining their relationships, particularly between father and daughter. A little over a year after the onset of the crisis, things get especially difficult. A Quiet Place marks Krasinski’s sophomore directorial effort, after The Hollars (2016), which I will now make a point of seeing, and he shares writing credit with the team of Bryan Woods and Scott Beck. Starting with a clever take on an old, old premise (basically an alien/monster invasion), the story moves into the realm of innovation by imposing rules. Because the story plays out largely in silence, the scares that punctuate it have to rely on precise visual composition, timing and editing, rather than the usual Pavlovian musical stabs and other, overlaid effects.
But the absence of sound also moves the story into a deeper, more nuanced place, suggesting the repression and interpersonal distance that have become as much a part of life for the Abbotts as survival. This element imparts a sense of narrative significance and emotional authenticity that lifts the movie beyond the “limits” of genre even as it hits the marks thereof. Maybe there’s hope after all. BROADWAY, FORTUNA, MILL CREEK.
BLOCKERS. Someone, driven by myopia and greed, decided that R-rated comedies are a “risky” proposition. History and everybody’s general sensibility seem to say otherwise, but what do I know. To take a boilerplate teen-sex comedy, though, and to tell it from the perspective of the parents? That’ a dicey proposition and precisely what Blockers sets out to accomplish. It kind of succeeds. Julie (Kathryn Newton), Kayla (Geraldine Viswanathan) and Sam (Gideon Adlon), friends since elementary school, make a pact to all lose their virginity on prom night. Their parents — Julie’s clingy mom Lisa (Leslie Mann), Kayla’s control freak dad Mitchell (John Cena) — find out and decide to intervene. Sam’s maybe/maybe not deadbeat dad Hunter (Ike Barinholtz) tries to stop them and is dragged along for the ride. Julie’s gung-ho for the whole thing and in love with her unremarkable boyfriend, Kayla just wants to get it out of the way and selects the school’s drug chef as her partner, and Sam is struggling with her sexuality. Unfortunately, the movie isn’t really about them. It’s ostensibly about their parents struggling with the looming adulthood of their kids. Sort of. It’s also trying to be a raunchy slapstick comedy but can’t quite pull off the balance. R. 102M. BROADWAY, FORTUNA, MILL CREEK.

A WRINKLE IN TIME. Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s fantasy novel about a girl’s (Storm Reid) search for her father (Chris Pine) with the help of a mystical trio (Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling) lacks the narrative coherency and consistency of character needed to appeal to those who aren’t already devoted fans. PG. 92M. BROADWAY, MILL CREEK.
— Jennifer Fumiko Cahill l
should warn you that I own a large pack of imaginary dogs. They are all rescue dogs that needed a forever home, so it’s cool. And I’ve taught them not to bark. Instead, they shark. Whenever they see a stranger they go, “SHARK! SHARK! SHARK!” It scares the hell out of people. But I can’t take the pack to the beach anymore after they triggered that stampede, which killed more surfers than have all actual sharks combined. So if you hear an imaginary dog yelling “Shark!” at the beach, and you don’t actually see a shark, how can you be sure it’s not an imaginary shark? Well, you might get lucky and find evidence washed up on the beach. I guess I’ve probably found a couple hundred Dungeness crab trap marker floats on local beaches over the years. Exactly two of them had obvious shark bites. A float probably looks enough like food to be worth a shark’s attention. Or maybe sharks are smart enough to simply be curious about odd objects in their environment. So if you are willing to eat multicolored marshmallows, don’t get judgmental about sharks. Also check any washed up soft plastic fishing lures. It’s not uncommon for lures to end up with rows of little triangular divots that most likely were made by some small shark’s teeth. Similarly, I found a chunk of Humboldt squid at Cape Mendocino a few years back that had scalloped wounds like it had been assaulted with giant pinking shears. (Warning: The next paragraph is particularly nasty.) Sea lion carcasses are worth checking for bites. I found a nice rotten one that looked like a marinated, maggoty mega Swiss cheese. It was pocked with holes that seemed shark-ish in origin. I found another adult sea lion bitten in half — nice and fresh with healthy-looking pink intestines tumbling out. I guess it could have been halved by orcas or a ship strike, but I’m going with white shark. And another time I saw a sad-looking sea lion clinging to the edge of an offshore rock with a big chunk missing from its bum. I waited but

never saw a shark. And you should definitely check washed-up whales for shark evidence. The sperm whale that washed up on Clam Beach in 2003, and the sei whale (I think that’s what they decided it was) near Freshwater Lagoon in 2005 both had a bunch of bites on their bits. Some of the bites were big enough to have been made by adult white sharks, I believe. Probably the most classic shark evidence is the bitten surfboard. Rather than washing up, these boards are always best when delivered to shore personally by the owner. This is what happened in 1990 when I happened to be standing near Trinidad Head watching a surfer, whom I’ll call Mister S, paddling back out and then straddling his board. He was then roughly investigated by a white shark — launched into the air and flung sideways with his board in a rooster tail of seawater. I didn’t actually see the shark as far as I could tell. But Mister S got back on his board and paddled in strong, thereby delivering his evidence-laden board to the beach in the preferred manner. And then later he was gracious enough to let me take a picture of the board in the parking lot of Mad River Community Hospital. l Mike Kelly writes other stuff as M. Sid Kelly on Amazon.

Diva Deverraux April 1, 2018 Diva Deverraux, of Eureka CA, died suddenly Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018. She was born in Los Angeles CA on April 22,1965 to Marco and Cynthia Dean Julian, joining brother David. The family spent Diva’s childhood in Santa Monica, CA. As a tiny girl, she sat at the family’s piano with her father, making music together. Music, dance and the arts continued to be a big part of her entire life. She had 3 daughters, Brynne, Kailey and Arielle, now 26, 16 and 14 years of age. As a young mother she attended college and worked diligently, achieving a Bachelor of Science degree in business from Regis University. She was a successful insurance broker in Eureka for 17 years, earning the love and appreciation of many of her clients. Those whose lives she touched will remember her sense of humor, her quick wit, kind nature, strong spiritual beliefs and her love of animals. Her greatest joy was spending time with her 3 daughters. She was preceded in death by her father. She is survived by her husband Paul Goodman, her daughters Brynne Marie Gerardi, Kailey Marie Fuerstenberg, and Arielle Kathryn Fuerstenberg, her mother Cynthia Dean Julian and her brother David Julian. Other survivors include a niece, Anja Julian, numerous aunts and uncles and many cousins. The love and joy she brought to those whose lives she touched lives on in our memories and in addition, because she chose to be an organ donor, she now lives on through many others. A memorial service to celebrate Diva’s life and mourn her passing will be held on Sunday, April 29 at 2 p.m. at the Wharfinger Building, 1 Marina Way, Eureka CA. 95501.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of Scott Steven Eskra, Scott S. Eskra, and Scott Eskra A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by Petitioner Brandy L. Eskra In the Superior Court of California, County of Humboldt. The petition for probate requests that Brandy L. Eskra be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on May 3, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at the Superior Court of California, County of Humboldt, 825 Fifth Street, Eureka, in Dept.: 6. 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.
