Smells Fishy Editor: The letter from Mr. Brennan (Mailbox, June 8) regarding the news media was very direct and accurate. Particularly the New York Times and the Washington Post, in that they publish information from a “reliable source.” How true is it? There is no way of validating this information. They are using their name to promote something. Their reputation is decreasing as a reputable news source. Sen. Feinstein has previously stated that there is no evidence in this Terry Torgerson “Russian collusion” story. Now she backs an investigation into the matter. Is this a “witch hunt?” Getting back to my original statement, the printed news media as mentioned before does not report news, they create news to “influence the uninformed through innuendo, accusations, character assassination and even falsehoods.” They never print retractions of any reported item. This brings to mind a statement by Rep. Pelosi regarding Obamacare, “We have to pass this bill so that you can find out what’s in it.” Thank you Mr. Brennan for your very accurate and informative letter. Just a thought. Dale Bridges, Eureka
‘A True Friend’ Editor: I strongly disagree with the letter to the editor in the June 8 North Coast Journal titled “Enemy of the People.” A free press is integral to our democracy. While journalists make mistakes, I believe the overwhelming majority take their jobs seriously in seeking the truth. The writer has obviously accepted the President’s propaganda line: The press is the enemy of the people. Would the writer prefer a system like that in Nazi Germany, where Joseph Goebbels, the “Minister of Propaganda,” communicated to Germans only the messages that Hitler demanded? The Third Reich: One of the original “fake news” organizations that led to World War II and the extermination of 6 million Jews. I believe the stories of the serious,

skilled journalists of the New York Times, Washington Post, PBS TV and NPR Radio over the words of a documented obsessive liar, President Trump. Or does the letter writer seriously believe that former President Obama was not born in this country and that he wiretapped then President-elect Trump in Trump Tower? Both have been proven to be lies. The press is a true friend of the American people. America without a free, independent press is like a heart without a beat. Paul DeMark, Eureka Editor: Rick Brennan, you are the fish and your June 8 letter to the editor to the NCJ the wrapper. No facts, just propaganda and untruths. Thank you for your clear and accurate example of “Fake News.” You rely on “the press” as enemy to propagate your mistruths. Well done; clever! But we see through your fifth column lies. I believe in journalism as bastions of unfiltered truth. I believe in the journalistic excellence of our local reporters at the Eureka Times-Standard. I believe in the journalistic integrity of the NCJ investigative reporters. I trust the journalists of the San Francisco Chronicle and the New York Times. Those “enemies of the people” published your letter. Lucky you to utilize the very media you decry. Thank you for your beautiful example of hypocrisy. James Floss, Freshwater
Editor: Mr. Brennan, apparently a fish wrapper would be relevant for you to wrap yourself in as soon as possible. Your inane, deluded perspective stinks to high heaven with tinges of Alt Right permeating, I guess, what you think passes as a thesis! I remember decades ago standing in a grocery checkout line and catching out of the corner of my eye the headline, “Man Receives Brain Transplant.” It was The Enquirer or one of its ilk. Perhaps you took advantage of this cutting edge technology. And perhaps it was a watershed moment that left you with a shattered dislike of free speech! A disgust regarding the printed word! Wrap yourself in said fish wrapper, flop around to your heart’s content and, most of all, let it absorb your venom. Printer’s ink is the salve that can maybe heal your nonsensical written ramblings! Eric Christensen, Trinidad
A ‘Nonviolent Force’ Editor: Knowing both of the men featured in your (June 8) cover story, “Masterpiece,” I read it with great interest. I thought Thad did a great job of capturing the intelligence, compassion and decency I have come to recognize in both Chief Mills and Blaze. It was gratifying to see them exchange points of view without rancor and with a level acceptance. Good journalism! Having known Blaze somewhat well over the past four or five years, I find it incomprehensible that he could have

been the instigator of the hostile encounter with the officer(s) and that he might have physically resisted or lashed out in the manner alleged. I don’t know Sgt. LaFrance, so I’m not able to comment on his character or veracity but, as between the Blaze I do know and the allegations leveled against him, I find only Blaze’s side of the story to be credible. For as long as I’ve known him, Blaze has always been a positive nonviolent force in our community. He has always encouraged more participation in community events and I’ve never known him to utter a harsh word about anyone, whether law enforcement or civilian. I also find it odd that an off-duty officer would take it upon himself to apprehend a simple trespasser with the reported level of force, given the long history of trespassing into the Balloon Track and all of the waterfront buildings
with little proactive policing. The constant graffiti on the engines and the multiple fires in the NCRA building and the ice plant provide evidence of this lack of police having prioritizing such trespasses. I hope this will all be resolved as a millisecond of misinterpretation that led to an unnecessary physical confrontation and that cooler heads will prevail before the legal process drags a good man into the meat-grinder system. Bronco Weseman, Eureka

Causes and Conditions Grand Jury investigates child welfare system By Linda Stansberry firstname.lastname@example.org
umboldt County’s children are not being afforded the protection they deserve. This is the conclusion of the Humboldt County Civil Grand Jury, which recently released two reports about our child welfare system. One, about response times for “at risk” children, includes a triangle of finger-pointing between the three entities most responsible for responding to signs of neglect and abuse. The report, which comes at the end of a nine-month investigation conducted by the grand jury, is based on multiple interviews within the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, school districts and Child Welfare Services. Interviewees discussed frustrations with the mandated reporter process. Mandated reporters are adults — like clergy, bus drivers, teachers and others — who are required by law to report signs of abuse in the children with whom they work. The scope of the problem in Humboldt County is potentially huge, as data from the Lucille Packard Foundation shows that we have one of the highest rates of abuse and neglect reports in the state (85 out of every 1,000 children, compared to the state average of 55). According to grand jury foreperson Jim Glover, the decision to investigate the county’s child welfare system originated from a couple of different complaints, one from the parent of a child in a rural school and another from a school superintendent. Grand jury members visited school districts across Humboldt County and spoke to personnel who had made mandated reports. The report describes the personnel as “vociferous in their complaints” about child welfare services, saying many cases were dismissed, CWS failed to reply or follow up, and case workers took so long to respond to reports (even after calling about a particular family or child as many as six to 21 times) that situations “deteriorated” significantly in the meantime. School personnel also allege they were told that CWS workers “don’t go that far South” or that they should call the Sheriff’s Office instead. At least one district said it had not kept a repository of mandated reports on students, meaning staff weren’t always aware that a particular child or family had ongoing issues. Another said it had been lax
on following through with written reports about allegations, which the law requires to be filed within 36 hours of the time an allegation is made. Through spokesperson Heather Muller, the county Department of Health and Human Services declined to respond to the grand jury, saying it is still reviewing the reports but will issue an official response “well within the established timeframe.” “Nothing our community does is more important than keeping children safe and we will continue to work with our families and partners to improve child welfare,” Muller said in a brief statement emailed to the Journal. Humboldt County Office of Education Superintendent Chris Hartley released a statement saying he appreciated the thoroughness of the investigation and looks forward to “further developing partnerships” with DHHS and law enforcement. “There is tremendous opportunity to continue to foster deeper interagency collaboration,” he said. “When we partner, we are stronger and our students and families directly benefit.” For their part, deputies with the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office described insufficient training of new deputies and supervisors, according to the report, which alleges some deputies did not file reports after making investigations and, in some cases, broke the anonymity of mandated reporters. Officers also had complaints about CWS, saying there were delays in receiving reports and CWS often sent a week’s worth on Friday afternoon, meaning that, in some cases, the HCSO wouldn’t be able to investigate until Monday. Stunningly, cases possibly involving physical or sexual abuse, meant to be reported within hours, sometimes did not get called in to the sheriff for days or weeks. Like the school personnel interviewed by the grand jury, law enforcement reported inadequate follow-up from case workers and problems with getting calls answered. Attempts to improve this relationship have failed, the grand jury said. “While the grand jury supports apparent current efforts to create a task force to improve transparency and communication,

the history of such past efforts gives us reason to be skeptical at this time,” the report states. Sheriff William Honsal pushes back on some of these findings, particularly in regard to training. Honsal says his office has negotiated a new memorandum of understanding with CWS that should close the “communication loop.” The Friday afternoon dumping of multiple cases will no longer happen, he says, adding that the sheriff ’s office has also assigned a new detective to child abuse cases, and its ranks will swell by nine new recruits in the coming months. Honsal says the challenges of recruiting and housing deputies in rural communities has contributed to staffing concerns in time-sensitive cases, such as those involving child abuse. But he denies that a lack of training is a factor. “We teach our people, when they respond to a child abuse case, we don’t want to further traumatize the child,” he says, explaining that the methodology of the Child Abuse Services Team involves an officer watching a social worker interview the child and taking a single report, rather than doing multiple interviews and potentially re-traumatizing a child. “What needs to be relayed is that we do take this very, very seriously at
the sheriff ’s office.” The CAST interview system does highlight a potential bottleneck in processing reports, as the grand jury report refers to a general dearth of social workers in the field. “CWS admitted they are badly in need of additional staff to handle their work,” the report reads. “Best estimates of unfilled social worker vacancies ranged from 10 to 22.” Exacerbating an overall deficit of workers, according to the report, is a recent shift in policy in which skilled social workers have been pulled from the field in order to staff the phones for hotline intakes. This is one of the changes in policies and procedures that appears to have taken place mid-investigation. The grand jury reports that CWS “abruptly made notable changes to their policies and procedures at intake” after twice denying the grand jury access to intake process data. In a report titled “Getting the Door Open,” the grand jury details its attempts to track response times by CWS, saying it had been denied name-redacted copies of intake forms and has reported this denial to the presiding judge. Despite the denial, the jury was able to review 50 reports sent by mandated reporters. It found “shockingly slow response times,” with only six receiving
attention within 24 hours (the mandated amount of time). The average time for CWS to respond to a mandated reporter, according to the grand jury’s data, was 12 days. It also found that, over a one-year period, CWS “evaluated out” more than half of reported abuse and neglect incidents, meaning they were disregarded, many without personal contact with reporters or alleged victims. The report states that the social workers interviewed in the course of the investigation “appeared to be seriously dedicated to the work they were doing” but were hamstrung with internal frustrations, such as not receiving proper training, a high turnover rate, management issues and overwhelming caseloads, according to interviews conducted with CWS personnel. If there are problems with CWS, Native American children appear to be suffering most in the system, representing approximately 38 percent of those in foster care despite comprising only 7 percent of all children in Humboldt County. The California Attorney General’s Office has also focused on examining this dynamic, attempting to make sure the county is adhering to the federal Indian Child Welfare Act. The grand jury found a “disproportionate number of
American Indian children removed from their homes.” The remote location of many tribal members may contribute to delayed response times by a small CWS staff already spread thin. The grand jury studied outcomes for one full year of reports, finding that a full 62 percent of calls were deemed not to meet requirements for an investigation, 32 percent were referred out to other agencies, such as family or marriage counseling (without follow up to see if these referrals were heeded), and only 6 percent of all reports received in the year resulted in opening a case for investigation. CWS, the report adds, appears to be “going through many rapid changes,” one of which may include a task force to improve transparency and communication with law enforcement and school districts. The Department of Health and Human Services, Humboldt County Sheriff ’s Office and Humboldt County Office of Education are expected to release official responses to the report later this month. ● Linda Stansberry is a staff writer at the Journal.

EPD Chief Headed to Santa Cruz
Mills looks forward to new challenges, better travel options By Thadeus Greenson firstname.lastname@example.org
he straw that broke Eureka Police Chief Andrew Mills’ will to stay in Humboldt County seems to have come not through politics or crime reports but, instead, through a pair of familiar local foes: weather and failing infrastructure. Mills, who announced last week that he’s accepted an offer to become Santa Cruz’s next police chief, said he recently celebrated a spring birthday at the Arcata home he and his wife, Cathy, bought shortly after Mills took over EPD three and a half years ago. The couple had planned on flying their adult children and grandchildren up from San Diego to celebrate in the 3,800-squarefoot home they’d purchased with just such family get-togethers in mind. But all the flights into the California Redwood Coast Humboldt County Airport were canceled and both U.S. Highway 101 and State Route 299 were closed due to rockslides. The family never made it north and, about a month later, the house went up for sale. The plan, Mills said, was to sell the house and rent or buy a small place in Eure-
ka. But then Santa Cruz posted its position, a recruiter came calling and Mills started weighing his options. “Santa Cruz is in a location where I can drive down for the weekend if I need to or fly down in a couple of hours,” he said, adding that he has two grandchildren with a third on the way, and he’d like to be a larger part of their lives. “For Cathy and I personally, it’s in a good location.” But Mills said the change is bittersweet on a number of levels. Personally, he noted his pull toward the grandchildren who have entered his life since he took over Eureka’s chief position from Murl Harpham in September of 2013. And professionally, the chief said, he likes the challenges Santa Cruz’s position brings: The city, which has a population about double Eureka’s, has substantial homeless issues, gang problems and needs to continue building a stronger relationship between the community and its police department. Those are things Mills feels align with his strengths. “It seems like a good fit,” he said. That feeling seems mutual. Santa Cruz
City Manager Martin Bernal issued a statement last week announcing Mills’ selection, pending a background check, and gushing about the city’s first outside police chief hire in more than three decades. “Andy has proved to be an innovator, an advocate for civil rights, a strategic thinker, as well as inclusive and forward thinking police leader,” Bernal said. “Andy went through an extensive review and vetting process that included a nationwide search and community process, and I am confi-
dent that he will build upon the already strong department in the coming months and years.” The hire isn’t yet final, as it is pending a background check that is only just beginning. If he passes background, Mills would then give Eureka 30-days notice before his official resignation. He estimated that if all goes smoothly, his last day in Eureka will fall somewhere in late July or early August. When hired by Eureka, Mills was commanding San Diego’s Western District in a

department he’d worked for three decades. Originally from Michigan, Mills came to Eureka with a strong background in problem-oriented and community policing, and was well known in San Diego for his community walks and general accessibility. In Eureka, Mills stepped into a department in turmoil. It had been under the direction of Harpham, who was 80 at the time he retired, for two years after the controversial firing of former Chief Garr Nielsen, who’d proven a divisive figure within the department during his four-year tenure. Shortly after stepping into Eureka’s chief position, Mills was tasked with addressing the city’s entrenched homeless issues, most notably the encampments behind the Bayshore Mall. Under Mills’ leadership, the department also saw the exodus of a number of long-tenured officers and a restructuring designed to make it more responsive to community needs. There was also controversy, most notably a pair of officer-involved shootings. The first, the fatal shooting of 22-year-old Tommy McClain in his front yard, ended with a federal jury determining officer Stephen Linfoot and McClain were both negligent when Linfoot opened fire and awarded McClain’s family $150,000 in damages. The second shooting — which saw four officers combine to fire 43 rounds at a fleeing suspect shortly before 5 p.m. in downtown — remains under investigation. Pointing in part to Mills’ handling of officer-involved shootings, Eureka City Manager Greg Sparks said that Mills brought a “high level” of leadership to his post on a daily basis, no matter the circumstances, and that extended from within the department to City Hall and the greater community. “In the city’s management team, Andy was universally respected and demonstrated strategic thinking,” Sparks said. “Whether it was on budget issues, homelessness, crime prevention — the chief’s words carried weight.” Mills said he learned a lot from his time in Eureka and is eager to carry that over to Santa Cruz. “My wheelhouse is really fostering and building a relationship with the community and I know that Santa Cruz has done a lot in that area and whatever I can do to help further that and foster that, I’m really intent on doing,” he said. But Mills said he’s also very sad to be leaving behind a group of friends in Humboldt County who have become like family.
“There are truly some salt-of-the-earth, great people here,” he said. “We have, I think, as adults, much closer friends here than we’ve ever had before. We have met people that will be lifelong friends.” As far as EPD is concerned, Mills said he feels like he’s helped usher in some progress toward a “more progressive ideology of policing,” helped improve the relationship between EPD and the community, and built trust between the department and the citizens it serves. “That could not have been possible without the men and women of EPD jumping in with both feet,” he said. “They were ready for that.” Mills also said he feels like he’s leaving some work undone, noting that he and his captains are just now in the process of mapping out which officers will cover which geographic beats in the city, so individual officers can get to know specific neighborhoods and their residents. “We’re thinking through the functionality of how that works,” he said. But Mills said one of the most significant challenges facing the department is fostering a communitywide culture that pulls officers to stay here and reduces attrition within EPD’s ranks. “One of the important things we need to do as a community is help the officers understand how much we love them, how much we appreciate them and how much we need them,” he said. Asked what’s next for EPD, Sparks said he’d like to see someone take over who will “build upon the foundation that has been established in the last four years,” someone who can manage resources effectively, attract and retain talented staff, and “maintain and expand” public trust in the department. Mills said he’s confident all that work will continue without him, pointing to the good work of his captains, Brian Stephens and Steve Watson, and the city leadership in place, mentioning City Manager Greg Sparks, Commmunity Development Director Rob Holmlund, Parks and Recreation Director Miles Slattery and City Clerk Pam Powell. “This is much greater than one person,” he said. “I’m just one spoke of many and I think this community has a great opportunity ahead of it.” l Thadeus Greenson is the Journal’s news editor.

Black Lives and Good Faith By Brenna Silbory
ast week, the Humboldt Bay Fire District Joint Powers Authority told firefighter Matt McFarland after a hearing that he can’t wear a small Black Lives Matter pin on his uniform. McFarland may just want to wear that pin, but the rest of us need him to. This is for all of our safety. I live in Eureka but, in 2001, I moved from Chico to San Francisco to become a poverty lawyer. My thinking then on the subject of race wasn’t complex. I was aspiring to “color-blindness,” believing it necessary to overcome our country’s awful history of racial division. But this changed when I began working with very poor people. At law school, I would mingle with overwhelmingly white judges, lawyers and students at my school’s social events while enjoying champagne, grilled prawns and vast platters of savory morsels. Then, when it was time for my volunteer shift, I would step outside that lovely little bubble and cross the street to meet with my homeless clients. It was a different crowd. Many had profound psychiatric impairments that impeded everything they tried to say or do, in addition to physical ailments ranging from chronic immune disease and severe seizure disorders to literally rotting limbs. Nobody in the crowded lobby where they waited had access to grilled prawns. Many didn’t have access to food. They were primarily people of color. The color line represented in that neighborhood — white privilege, black and brown poverty — bothered me. It still does. It should bother you, too. After law school, I worked for several years at a nonprofit in San Jose, where my vulnerable clients often sobbed their way through interviews explaining the cold hard facts of their lives: vicious abuse, terrible losses and the hectic uncertainty of trying to survive poverty in a country without a real social safety net. One client asked me to help extricate her from a difficult housing situation. And then her ex set that house on fire with her in it and she was dead.
The color line persisted. It became impossible not to notice segregation and inequality, usually legal, nearly everywhere I looked. In housing. In employment. In civic life. My work often took me into local hospitals and the jail, and it was obvious there, too. Some contexts were more dramatic than others, and the divisions weren’t limited to black and white. But white people like me had disproportionate power and wealth. We were still predominantly in charge, even where, as in San Jose, we were in the minority. It didn’t seem right. I sought out skilled local leaders of color to learn what to do. Retired Judge LaDoris Cordell, one of the first African-American women to serve on the bench in California, hired me when she was newly appointed as San Jose’s independent police auditor. We were civilians and we didn’t work for the police. Our job, roughly summarized, was to do what we could to prevent a Rodney King-type situation in San Jose. Do you remember Rodney King? If you do, it’s because it was the first time a bystander’s video footage of police violence against an unarmed African-American man went viral. It was 1991, and the footage showed white officers beating the snot out of Mr. King, and then Los Angeles burnt for six days during the riots that erupted after the officers were acquitted. More than 50 people died in those riots, thousands more were injured, and 10,000 businesses literally went up in smoke. That event birthed the civilian police oversight movement. I wish every white voter had a chance to learn what I did in that job. My own interactions with police had always been positive but I learned that many people felt unsafe asking law enforcement for help because they were likely to hurt you or treat you unfairly. It was rare that I heard this from white people, except the disabled. But I heard it frequently from community members of color, this visceral fear among law-abiding people. This can be hard for white people like me to understand but it is true. It was as if
12 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, June 15, 2017 • northcoastjournal.com
our most vulnerable neighbors didn’t see a badge pledging honor and service when they saw police uniforms. Instead, where I saw a badge, they saw an invisible button. And the button said: “Your life doesn’t matter because you’re not white.” Imagine the fear of living every day believing that, even if a criminal hurts you, police involvement will likely hurt you worse. You might even turn to extra-legal strategies like vigilantism to protect yourself, such as joining a street gang. I thought back to my client who’d been murdered. She was Latina. Had she felt safe asking for help? Some people will say, can’t you just point out to these folks that most officers aren’t racist, that they’re good people who try really hard? Unfortunately, no. First, as many of us have experienced in this modern political climate, simply telling people they are wrong about their perception of reality is not always an effective way to change minds. Researchers describe the so-called “backfire effect,” in which people tend to double-down on closely held beliefs when confronted with facts that contradict them. In other words, arguing the facts can make them harder to hear. But also that color line, which many people have noticed and thoroughly mapped, is awfully suspicious. And we’re now witnessing frequent bystander videos like the one that introduced us to Mr. King back in 1991, images of people in uniforms hurting and killing black and brown people in shocking and disturbing ways. Our justice system still seems to have no answers for any of it. And riots still sometimes follow. How can all this not, frankly, affirm the suspicions of many, including an increasing number of white people like me, that something is deeply wrong? Perhaps we all are, in fact, living together — whether we mean to or not — in a white supremacist culture? And how on Earth is a well-meaning first responder supposed to do his or her very hard job in this context? A true public servant, like McFarland, wants to make sure the public sees that badge pledging service, rather than the invisible button that says only some deserve protection. That’s why, as a white man, McFarland fought to wear a Black Lives Matter pin on his uniform. He’s often mistaken for a police officer and wanted to clearly communicate good faith to vulnerable people so he can do his job well. Humboldt, we need this for him and his public safety colleagues, too. We need them to signal that the brutality of the past isn’t their own. And to live that way, too. If we want more violence, then, by all means, let’s keep arguing about whether peoples’ fears are legitimate, make sure so-
ciety is run by bullies who insult everyone whose lived experiences are different from their own and dismiss perspectives that are hard to hear. Or we can embrace the intrinsic value of human life, reflected in the statement Black Lives Matter. The founders of the movement are getting this year’s Sydney Peace Prize, recognition all the way from Australia. We should also honor their work here. This is the paragraph where I have to expressly state what some readers will be straining to hear. Yes. White lives, and police lives, and firefighter lives matter. For the thousandth time, yes. You matter, my fellow white people. But if you’re like me, you already knew that. You grew up knowing that, because your culture reflected your value back to you from every direction. Because you are white. Not all white people are equally privileged. Poor lives matter, too, and some white people have led very hard lives. But this reflexive insistence on “all lives” or “blue lives” whenever someone says “black lives” is whistling Dixie amid hundreds of years of targeted violence against black people. Who was chained to slave ships, made to work under the whip without pay, and forced into centuries of systemic persecution designed to silence and marginalize them, right up to the present generation? Black Americans. Not whites or police. Might it now be appropriate, in light of this history, to spotlight the value of black lives for a change? Justice goes deeper than legality. Fairness, not laws, prevents riots. It’s terrible for everyone’s safety when law enforcement is not trusted. It hamstrings and endangers our officers. Witnesses don’t come forward. Crimes go unsolved. Criminals cause more harm. And communities and individuals suffer when they ought to thrive. What our brave first responders must do to confront this problem is to proudly demonstrate that black and brown lives matter, every day, in every way they can. It’s not hard, really. Wearing a button to that effect is, frankly, the obvious and professional place to start. l Brenna Silbory is a writer, survivor of chronic illness and recovering attorney.

Week in Weed
A Cannabis Chasm By Kimberly Wear firstname.lastname@example.org
ommunity Development Director Rob Holmlund found himself navigating some strange territory last week while taking the Eureka City Council’s input on the future of recreation marijuana in the city. Instead of focusing on zoning districts and buffers, Holmlund was left to fact check one councilmember’s understanding of chemical compounds in medical marijuana. He also heard calls to turn on the pot sales spigot and skirted debates on the impacts of alcohol versus cannabis. It had all seemed simple enough. After all, the council passed medical marijuana regulations just last September. But the ensuing council conversation — much of it centered on the retail and dispensary side of the issue — left little doubt about the recreational cannabis chasm that exists on the dais. On one side — literally — were Councilmembers Kim Bergel and Austin Allison, who took a put-out-the-welcome-mat approach, saying they didn’t see a real difference between selling alcohol and legal weed. “I think we need to be pioneers and just go with the flow and see what happens,” said Allison, who noted the potential tax revenue in tight economic times minus the destructive societal impacts associated with alcohol abuse. Bergel joined in, saying the city needs to “join the new generation” and agreed with Allison’s view that there was no need to limit the number of recreational retail outlets because the free market would balance itself out. “We might start with plenty but that doesn’t mean we’re going to end up with plenty,” she said. Meanwhile, their counterparts on the opposite side of the dais — Councilmembers Heidi Messner and Marion Brady — stood firm that there were distinct differences between medical and recreational marijuana, even as Brady seemed surprised to find out that both products can, in fact, get you high. “You’re not smoking or eating or whatever recreational marijuana because you want a medical effect … if you want a medical effect you’ll get medical marijuana, which doesn’t contain THC,” Brady said. “Uh, that’s not true,” Holmlund replied. “No?” Brady asked, receiving a brief explanation about CBDs before she pressed
on. “But the point of the medical is not to get high and the point of recreational is to experience an altered reality state.” Messner, meanwhile, left Holmlund at a bit of a loss when she posed the scenario that a person could drink alcohol without getting drunk, but questioned whether the same was true of “imbibing” marijuana in any of its forms. “There’s some pretty deep semantics,” Holmlund said, briefly stumbling for a reply. “I don’t know how to answer that question.” In a more central position, Councilmember Natalie Arroyo simply said she wants to see consistency between the city’s medical and recreational marijuana guidelines that represent the will of the voters. She also asked that odor control be part of personal cultivation requirements and, along with other councilmembers, asked staff to look at expanding the same buffer zones that exist for public schools to private campuses, daycares and youth centers. Holmlund had presented a vision to establish the city as a manufacturing hub for the state while leaving commercial cultivation and sales of non-medical pot fallow inside city limits, at least until a future date. From his perspective, he said after the meeting, manufacturing is where the money is and a look at the county’s permitting list likely means a massive amount of grows are already in the region’s future — more than needed for local use even if everyone took up a “cannabis habit.” But the council majority, at least, seems to have given retail sales a green light. A bit hazier is the cultivation question and what marijuana uses — medical and non-medical — to allow in service commercial zones. With a January 2018 deadline looming, Holmlund is set to get a draft ordinance to the planning commission in August and then back to the council in September for another review. Holmlund said he’s optimistic that he has a handle on the council’s directions and the process will go smoothly. “We will determine the accuracy of my understanding when we bring the ordinance to them,” he said last week. l Kimberly Wear is the assistant editor and a staff writer at the Journal.

HSU Axes Pepsi Contract
umboldt State University President Lisa Rossbacher has decided to sever the school’s ties with PepsiCo after some students came forward opposing its ongoing 40-year relationship with the multi-billion-dollar company. Under the contract, PepsiCo gave HSU about $58,000 in sponsorship funds for athletic scholarships and scoreboard maintenance in exchange for “pouring rights” guaranteeing Pepsi 80 percent of on-campus food and beverage retail space. With the five-year contract slated to expire June 30 and up for renewal, students urged administrators yo end the school’s relationship with the soft drink giant — which owns a host of multi-billion-dollar subsidiaries, including Quaker, Cheetos, Doritos, Gatorade and Tropicana. Specifically, students argued that partnering with PepsiCo wasn’t in line with the school’s stated commitment to promoting social and environmental justice due to environmentally unsustainable practices, deceptive marketing techniques and its litany of unhealthy offerings. Additionally, they said the contract denies local businesses the opportunity to sell their products on campus. Through a series of campus meetings attended by many students last semester, it became apparent that the potential of losing almost $60,000 in revenue was daunting to administrators, who face a

budget shortfall, including a $500,000 structural deficit in the athletic department. “There is no easy solution,” HSU VP of Administrative Affairs Joyce Lopes said at a meeting in April. “We are in a deficit environment and I honestly don’t know where to find that $58,000.” HSU spokesperson Grant Scott-Goforth said in an email to the Journal that Rossbacher made her decision with input from the Division of Administrative Affairs, which oversees all contracts and procurement for the university, the athletic department and the University Center, which operates dining services. Scott-Goforth said Rossbacher is confident that dining services will be able to meet student needs while providing them with more product options, which may still include some Pepsi offerings, just without the “pouring rights” contract. As to that $58,000, it’s unclear if athletics scholarships will be maintained, though the department can look to contract with Pepsi directly to make up some of the lost funding, if it so desires. Editor’s note: In the interest of full disclosure, Scott-Goforth spent three years working for the Journal as an assistant editor and staff writer before leaving to work at HSU. — Thadeus Greenson POSTED 06.09.17 READ THE FULL STORY ONLINE.

Miles to Go: Humboldt County Superior Court Judge Marilyn Miles has announced that she will be retiring at the end of next month after 19 years on the bench. The announcement comes just weeks after Gov. Jerry Brown tapped defense attorney Greg Elvine-Kreis to fill the seat left vacant by Judge Bruce Watson’s retirement in January of 2016.

n this oh-so-polarized country of ours, it’s important to give voice to the voiceless, to make sure people hear the unpopular opinions of the day, right? After all, without unpopular opinions we never would have had child labor laws, women’s suffrage, the civil rights movement or an end to the Vietnam War. But we live in a day and age when it can be hard to give voice to an unpopular opinion — even a trivial one — and that’s a problem. If we can’t honestly discuss sports fandom, drum circles and prayer flags, how are we going to talk it out on real problems, like accessible healthcare, income inequality and racism? In this issue, we start mostly with the easy stuff to prime the pump — I’m pretty sure I just made
that term up — so we can maybe move onto the heavy stuff. So take some time to read and consider, and please join the conversation at www.northcoastjournal. com and on Facebook. What could go wrong? — Thadeus Greenson

the flecks of dill that make this crime against salmon seem like a good idea? Some poor Nova Scotian — or worse, an Alaskan without that cushy Canadian health insurance — worked hard to catch and cold smoke or cure that salmon, to bring out its delicate texture and rich fat. What are we paying, $10, $20 or more per pound? And then we go ahead and drown it in sticky sweet dressing. Neither lox nor its Nordic cousin gravlax can stand up to this abuse, to say nothing of the bagel beneath it forced to bear witness. Maybe our sturdier, spicier smoked local salmon has a fighting chance against the onslaught of canola oil, turmeric and sugar, but don’t our precious few salmon deserve better?

I Don’t Like Eureka I love this town, but it’s no romance. Romance is for places like Ferndale. We can “like” places like Loleta the way you think your barista is cute or your friend’s friend is charming. My love for Eureka is the same kind of love we’re forced to admit for our bullying siblings or least hip musical tastes. I love driving back from the hot, mosquito-choked inland and seeing a thick belt of fog on the horizon. I love the prefabricated houses built on the remains of old farms, sitting next to the dilapidated Victorians with Tibetan prayer flags in their eaves. I love my old Craftsman, the first home I’ve owned, my neighborhood of pit bull owners, young parents and retirees. I love WinCo, at all hours, and, yes, with all of its people, united in our thrift and utilitarianism. I love riding my bike to work on cold mornings, down quiet side streets, past the renovated churches, past the auto repair shop already blasting classic rock, with the scent of wet pavement in my nose. I love the dive bars, the sagging garages, the gunmetal sky, the mildewed sills, the slight air of entropy that infects everything. Oh, and I love all of the other things as well, the ones people come here to see — the coffee shops, the waterfront, bookstores, the parks — but none of these things seduce or charm me. I don’t like Eureka, but I don’t think I’ll ever be totally done with it. Isn’t that love? — Linda Stansberry

Baby is not Boss Attachment parenting is bullshit. This philosophy, that a baby must be kept close at all times, should be breastfeed on demand, belongs in your bed and ought never to be put in a stroller is, to put it mildly, insane. To put it more strongly, attachment parenting is a lucrative movement in which so-called experts sell books exploiting the cultural pressure placed upon parents to be infallible and manipulating the natural desire parents feel to make sure their children grow up to become successful, happy, well-adjusted adults. If one only follows this recipe, the theory goes, babies will forever be content and a mother will have fulfilled her blessed role like the angel we demand she be. The problem is, this theory is halfbaked. Yes, parents should love and care for their kids. Of course. But there’s no science that bears out the concept that waiting on one’s child hand and foot

You’re Probably not a Warriors Fan I get it, you like the Golden State Warriors. They’re damn good and heck of a lot of fun to watch. And I’m sure you’re rooting for them. It’s just that being a true fan — short for fanatic — demands more than simple admiration. It demands loyalty, and I can’t help but wonder where all these blue and yellow hats, hoodies and jerseys I see parading through Humboldt County were hiding just a few years ago, you know, back when Stephen Curry was just a skinny kid with flimsy ankles. It’s easy to be seduced by the poetry that is the Warriors on the court these days — the unselfish play, the gritty hustle, the swishes. So. Many. Swishes. But if you’ve spent much of the last four decades rooting for the Lakers, Bulls, Kings and Spurs — as the Warriors missed the playoffs 29 times in 35 years and went 15 without an All Star — you don’t get to claim allegiance now. Let’s back up a bit and be really clear. If you’re over the age of 35 and think of Chris Webber as a Sacramento King, you’re just not a Warriors fan. Think that’s unfair? Then tell me about Tom Gugliotta, P.J. Carlesimo, Todd Fuller and Marcus Williams. Can’t? How about Ekpe Udoh, Speedy Claxton and Monta Ellis’ moped? Drawing blanks? That’s fine. It doesn’t make you a bad person. It just means you’re not a Warriors fan.

Fear and Self-loathing in Humboldt Now, at the risk of totally alienating myself from the ranks of Humboldt County sports enthusiasts, I’ll get one last thing off my chest: Fuck the Giants. As a lifelong Oakland Athletics fan,
20 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, June 15, 2017 • northcoastjournal.com
I can say that the Giant adoration up here has always confused me. After all, if Humboldt County were a baseball team, it would certainly be the A’s — a scrappy squad from a blue collar city that just can’t seem to have nice things — not the team with the $180 million payroll, sleek uniform colors and a new stadium full of hipsters. And maybe that’s just it. There’s an undercurrent of self-loathing here in Humboldt, where we often seem convinced we can’t have nice things and trip all over each other bickering about it. The thing is, Humboldt, we can have nice things. We just need to look in the mirror and love what we see looking back. It’s OK that, collectively, we may never be as well groomed or high salaried as we’d like. And it’s OK to admit we may never get the sparkling infrastructure we surely deserve. But we’re going to keep scrapping and there’s a lot to love about that. — Thadeus Greenson
‘From Here’ Doesn’t Make You Better I am a fourth-generation local on both my mom and dad’s sides of the family. My family name is on stones in pioneer cemeteries in rural corners of our county. I love my family but I’m not convinced of the practical value of being “from around here,” other than I can spell place names correctly and have a shirttail cousin in every town. Some of the people contributing the most to our community have a Humboldt tenure younger than my sourdough starter. Our fetish for “localdom” is weird. But maybe that’s me exercising my privilege, like a fish breathing through gills with no concept of water. The only other place I’ve lived long-term, San Francisco, was full of transplants and immigrants. I never got frozen out for pronouncing “Duboce” incorrectly. (FYI: I have always called it “the 101” and it’s not a big deal.) I can never fully understand what it means to be shut down for not being “from around here.” Being a medium-sized fish in a small, warm, familiar pond chock-full of cousins can be stifling sometimes, but it’s ultimately a comfortable place for me. So let’s get uncomfortable: I am the descendent of an invasive species. I inherited my privilege of place due to the systemic murder, rape and enslavement of the Wiyot, the Yurok, the Hupa, the Wailaki, the Karuk, the Lassik, the Nongatl, the Sinkyone and the Mattole. I’m going to be honest with you and say I don’t totally know what to do with that inheritance. It’s not something I can cover in 200 words, or maybe even 200 pages. I am terrified
Let it burn. Photo by Rich Paselk of doing it wrong, this apology. But I am more terrified of not doing it at all. I cannot forfeit being “from around here.” Invasive species or no, this little pond is my home. I love my name and the people who gave it to me. What I can do, until I am given better direction, is insist that being “from around here” should be less important than what you do once you get here. If you have an old name, a grand name, then use your life to make it stand for something you can be proud of. Maybe if we all cherished our legacy as much as we do our history, we could sprout some legs and move forward. — Linda Stansberry
Kill Bill Never have I been warned by so many people to drop a subject. Don’t do it. People will hate you. Are you out of your mind? Here come the torches and pitchforks. It’s been nice working with you. But
it’s time for the cramped Sequoia Park Zoo to get rid of Bill the Chimp’s memorial exhibit. (Quickly looks over shoulder.) Of course people are attached. I know about his tragic backstory — stolen from the wild, performing in a British circus where he picked up boxing skills and a smoking habit before local school children raised money to buy him — and that he performed for the queen and once hung out with Jane Goodall. And sure, when he finally passed at the age of 61, he was like a loveable drunk uncle about whom everybody has a story. People actually smile recalling the time he lobbed his feces at them. A co-worker told me, not without fondness, “I think he masturbated in front of my mother once.” Keep the statue somewhere, if you must, as a memorial both to Bill and the archaic conditions modern zookeepers have abandoned.

In Defense of MSG By Jennifer Fumiko Cahill email@example.com
hey’re not like salt crystals, exactly. They’re longer, like white bugle beads from a glamorous 1920s dress. In a pile, they sparkle like dreamy snow in a stop-motion Christmas movie. And when judiciously added to food, they’re goddamn magic. Monosodium glutamate, or MSG, is much maligned, right up there with high fructose corn syrup and trans fats as an evil, unhealthy additive that makes us sick. But MSG is a naturally occurring compound found, for example, in tomatoes and some cheeses. More than 100 years ago, Japanese chemist Kikunae Ikeda figured out how to draw the rich, satisfying umami flavor of glutamic acid, a common amino acid, from kombu seaweed and bond it to salt. And so monosodium glutamate in a bottle was born. Pour out some instant ramen broth for the man. Umami, that buzz word on every chef’s tongue, describes the rounded, satisfying flavor in foods, the depth that, say, anchovies and Parmesan give Caesar salad, the earthy richness of mushrooms, meat’s, well, meatiness (think unsalted stock). It’s a recognized basic flavor, too, right along with sweet, salty, bitter and sour. But since MSG powder is an artificially produced shortcut — a sprinkle replacing those hours of stock boiling time — with a scientific name, many believe it’s unhealthy and/or semi-poisonous. (Shhh, MSG. Don’t listen to them, baby.) This despite the fact that, according to the Food and Drug
Administration, “MSG is produced by the fermentation of starch, sugar beets, sugar cane or molasses. This fermentation process is similar to that used to make yogurt, vinegar and wine.” Used in reasonable amounts as a seasoning, it’s fine. Despite anecdotal reports of MSG’s side effects — a combination of sluggishness, headaches, numbness and palpitations that used to be called “Chinese Restaurant Syndrome” (not cool, man) — research has shown little hard evidence. In a study published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology, double-blind tests showed the same rate of symptoms with MSG and a placebo. An FDA study found that some people experienced symptoms after consuming 3 grams or more with water, an amount it deemed “unlikely.” (The agency also ditched the pejorative name for the symptoms.) In fact, the FDA website states most MSG-spiked meals hover around .5 grams, so that headache you got might be from drinking too much Tsing Tao or all the sugar in your sweet and sour, even if you are one of those sensitive types. As for the Chinese restaurants people regard with such suspicion, they’re not the only places you’ll find human-made MSG. That psychedelic orange dust on your Doritos is full of it. Maybe you’re not your best after plowing through a bag but is anybody complaining about Extreme Nacho Syndrome? MSG shows up in ranch dressing, fast food fried chicken (that’s
right, the least Chinese man to ever front a restaurant, the Colonel, is pouring the finger-lickin’ stuff on) and plenty of other foods. And if you’ve ever made a recipe that calls for a pinch of Aji-no-moto, well, that’s MSG in that little red and white bottle. No shame. My family sprinkled it in scrambled eggs. Mind you, some cooks use it as a kind of duct tape (the Colonel could ease up, truthfully), the quick and dirty solution to a flavorless dish, much like throwing hot sauce or salt at a problem. But MSG’s flavor pumping effect is something that many of us have come to expect, like HDTV, even when the sharpness gets creepy. The last time I was in San Francisco Airport, friends I was visiting asked me to pick up an order of beef chow fun with no MSG from their favorite takeout stand. They’d gotten it there before, no problem, they said. But when I placed my order, the woman behind the counter frowned like an auntie tasked with delivering bad news and said no. She waved me over to the side and glanced back at the kitchen. “Everybody has it,” she whispered, explaining that while the chef doesn’t sprinkle the stuff on, plenty of Asian kitchen staples, like oyster sauce and bouillon, come standard with MSG. “If somebody tells you there’s no MSG, they lie. Or they don’t know.” It was a hard truth and I was both grateful and disoriented by the sudden intimacy of a shared secret. Surely there are exceptions. But the labor it would take to make those staple ingredients from scratch isn’t something most people are willing to pay (or wait) for, at least not at notoriously underpriced Asian restaurants. And let’s not forget that naturally occurring MSG — do you even want to go to an Italian place without tomatoes and Parmesan cheese? I thanked my new airport restaurant confidant and got the fried noodles to go anyway, along with a couple of dumplings that I ate by my gate. By the time I popped open the takeout container they were a slightly droopy from too much time wheeling my baggage through the terminal. Even so, the minced shrimp filling was tender and rich with that comforting umami flavor — slightly artificial but totally honest. l Jennifer Fumiko Cahill is the arts and features editor at the North Coast Journal.

The Kids are All Right By Andy Powell
s I wrote this column on Sunday evening in my “office” (a shed in our backyard) a serendipitous moment occurred. Over the occasional sounds of our dogs barking at absolutely nothing, I heard our son and daughter listening to Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl” while lying in the hammock and grass (respectively). Perhaps as Father’s Day is right around the corner, this moment had me thinking about our kids listening to “our” music and how I used to do the same thing when I was their age. I specifically remember hearing “Brown Eyed Girl” on the front porch of our childhood home in Southern California when I was just a bit younger than our son is now. I don’t recall if this was the first time I had heard the song, but it was the first time it really slid its way into my memory. I recall the infectious groove and the heavenly perplexing “sha la la las” and “la dee dahs” that peppered the song. I also remember my Aunt’s friend Don on the porch singing along with his young daughter while I just stood motionless, letting the sound swirl around me and take me somewhere. The music took a hold of me, and would never let me go. This wasn’t “my” music in the sense of it being created by someone in my generation, it was from my parent’s generation, but it became mine, and it’s now becoming my kids’. Next up, I heard my kids listening to The Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun,” another one that will always be a part of me. Our son in particular has not only been a fan of The Beatles now for a bit, but has been asking me for Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, and Led Zeppelin recommendations. Outside of my obvious pride in his “correct” taste in music, I began to wonder what it was that makes us want our children to like “our” music. Is it a sense of connecting our kiddos to what we define as meaningful art? Is it just a way of getting validation that we’re still just as hip as we think we are? Or does it have simply to do with nostalgia? I’m still not sure but I love seeing our son begin the same musical journey that I did at his age. I wouldn’t want his path to lead him along the exact route it took me but I can’t help but feel excited it’s beginning along the same direction. I hope he’ll be
more in tune with music that is being created and released as he grows up than I was, to have some sort of musical touchstone with his peers, but if he’s already settling in with authentic, creative, curious, reflective and truthful music at his age, then I feel I have little to worry about. Perhaps there’s no better gift to receive on Father’s Day than a request for Dark Side of the Moon, Physical Graffiti, Astral Weeks, Abbey Road, Beggar’s Banquet or Who’s Next. Maybe the kids are all right after all.
Thursday Longtime and local bluegrass band the Compost Mountain Boys return to their gig at the Mad River Brewery and Tap Room up in oft-sunny Blue Lake. They’ll start playing at around 6 p.m. and will probably keep picking away for about two and a half hours. It’s a free show — as MRB does — but don’t be afraid to the tip the band.
Friday Sticking with Mad River Brewery here for a minute, local country lovers Cadillac Ranch are making the blocks-long trip to the Tap Room to get you up and swaying the night away. As you guessed, it’s a free show starting around 6 p.m. Kids are welcome and so are dogs as long they’re on leash, but feel free to leave both at home if possible. The Westhaven Center for the Arts is hosting an Open Blues Jam with Seabury Gould & Friends at 7 p.m. tonight. Players of acoustic or electric blues are asked to bring their instrument along to participate in the community jam. Should that be your jam, you’ll be able to get in for free. If you’d rather be a spectator — nothing wrong with that — you’ll be asked for a $5-10 cover charge to get in. Up from the lovely armpit of California, Fresno’s roots-rock duo Cloudship is stopping by Six Rivers Brewery at 9 p.m. for a free show influenced by alternative rock, grunge rock and progressive rock. Welcome the band to our strange land with trees and water.
Saturday It’s Oyster Fest today, so come up with a game plan in your head before getting silly day-drunk and making a total ass of yourself. If you want to frontload it pretty

Sea You There!
The International Stage
Humboldt’s bounty of seafood gets its day in the sun times two this weekend. We love our oysters (and so does the rest of the state — oysters from Humboldt Bay make up about 70 percent of those eaten). We grill ’em, shoot ’em raw, spice ’em up and eat ’em pretty much any way we can. And we can’t get enough, judging by the throngs that turn out each year for the Arcata Bay Oyster Festival, happening this Saturday, June 17 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the Arcata Plaza (free admission). It’s one of Humboldt’s biggest parties, drawing thousands who are happy as clams to sample Pacific and Kumamoto delicacies and other food options, plus beer, wine and cider, and live music by Diggin’ Dirt, the Bayou Swamis, Timbata, Motherlode, Ghost Train, Dynasty One, Anna Hamilton, the A.T.F. Trio, and the Lost Coasters Hawaiian Island Band. Save room for more, though. The Greater Trinidad Chamber of Commerce hosts the 60th annual Trinidad Fish Festival Sunday, June 18 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Trinity Street, where you can enjoy hearty plates of traditional fish and chips or grilled salmon, and party all day with music from Doug Fir & the 2x4s, Lizzy and the Moonbeams, Blue Rhythm Revue and Rosewater: A Tribute to the Grateful Dead. There’s also a street fair with arts and crafts vendors, community organizations, a cake sale, food vendors and beverages, and an “ultimate Kid Zone” at Town Hall featuring characters Peg + Cat. Bonus: HSU’s Marine Lab and the working lighthouse will be open for tours. It’s a sweet, sweet life living by the salty sea. — Kali Cozyris
Each summer, Dell’Arte International sets the stage(s) for five weeks of performances known collectively as the Mad River Festival. The school’s annual showcase of original plays, comedy, street theater, live music and family fun is back for its 27th year June 15 through July 15 and, as always, has something for everyone. If you haven’t been, make this your year. It’s world-class theater, music, comedy and larger-than-life theatrical thrills right here in sunny Blue Lake. Starting things off is the festival’s main stage show and Dell’Arte world premiere, The State of Jefferson Picnic: This land is your land, but mostly my land, a new political farce with music, song and laughs playing Thursdays through Sundays, June 15 - July 2 at 8 p.m. at the Rooney Amphitheatre ($10-$18). Other festival highlights include the Big Top Family Series: Cowgirl Tricks featuring “America’s Funniest Cowgirl” Karen Quest, returning for her second year whip-cracking her way in the Pierson Pierson Big Hammer Tent, June 18 at 2 p.m. ($10, $5 12 and under). The festival’s Mad Lab 1 and Mad Lab 2 performances offer a glimpse of the “work-in-progress” of experimental theater created by Dell’Arte faculty and alumni on June 21 (Mad Lab 1) and June 28 (Mad Lab 2) in the Carlo Theatre at 8 p.m. (pay-what-you-can), followed by more original plays by international Dell’Arte MFA graduates (see www.dellarte. com for full festival schedule), and ending with the rousing, foot stomping Humboldt Folklife Festival, July 8-15, a week of folk music events culminating in a free all-day festival at the Rooney Amphitheatre on July 15. — Kali Cozyris

House of Horrors
A dark horse and a classic blunder By John J. Bennett
email@example.com When my song comes on. The Mummy
IT COMES AT NIGHT. As the recent tidal wave of smaller, independent horror movies seems to have receded a bit, we have the opportunity to consider their merits and shortcomings. As I’ve remarked (probably too many times) before, there were within that group a few very pleasant surprises. As with anything of value, though, there were dramatically outnumbered by cheap slasher pics and exploitative pseudo-shockers. Whether or not our greater cultural taste as improved and whether the “market” has (or will) self-adjust remains to be seen. But we find ourselves now in a period of relative calm and it feels like an entirely appropriate moment for a movie like It Comes At Night. If pressed, I suppose one would have to call it “horror” but even if it hits some of the marks — with great precision — it seems unfair to so limit it. Maybe because it calls back to some of the slower, headier forbearers of the genre more than the graphic, pandering recent school, it feels like more than just a horror movie. It deals in horrific things, to be sure, but in a more measured, contemplative, artful way. As an indeterminate plague sweeps the cities (of the country? the world?), one family subsists in a crazy, rambling old house on a remote, densely forested property. As the movie opens, we observe grandfather Bud (David Pendleton) succumbing to the mystery illness. His daughter Sarah (Carmen Ejogo) watches, bereft, gloved and gas-masked, until her husband, Paul (Joel Edgerton), and their son Travis (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) expedite the end of life and dispose of the body. Such is the new normal. Life goes on in a numbed, precarious way. Travis alternates between insomnia

and cataclysmic nightmares, finding some solace in the companionship of his grandfather’s dog Stanley. Paul busies himself with the routine of survival. Sarah inures herself to the constant shocks and pain of their new lifestyle. One night, the family awakens to the noise of an intruder. After subduing him, Paul ties the man, Will (Christopher Abbott), to a tree, waiting to see if he will manifest symptoms of the dreaded disease. When he does not, Paul interrogates him and, satisfied by his answers, aids Will in bringing his wife Kim (Riley Keough) and young son Andrew (Griffin Robert Faulkner) to live with his family. After an early easy period, Paul’s vigilance/paranoia permeates the situation, which proves to be ultimately untenable. Had I been asked, on leaving the theater, what I thought of It Comes At Night, I likely would have responded with mild approbation; damning it with faint praise. The aesthetic is strong, the camera moves deliberate and measured, the music atmospheric but never intrusive. Days later, though, the movie has continued to grow in my mind. There are images (not terribly shocking ones) that linger in the memory, made all the more indelible by the air of dread and unknowing that so permeates them. Writer/director Trey Edward Shults (Krisha, 2015) plays it smart here, keeping his story small, focusing his energy on tone and mood, and imbuing every scene (every shot, really) with that mood. This results in a contemplative, cohesive work that defies genre even as it plays to it. To a degree this is a horror movie, sure. But it is also dystopian futurist, a wilderness family drama and a coming-of-age story. Ultimately, it is a distinct and significant work of art
— a precise, compact, well-considered story told with great restraint and style. It may not be my favorite new movie and its atmosphere of claustrophobia and distrust will likely be too off-putting for some, but it succeeds where many have failed. R. 97M. BROADWAY, MILL CREEK.
THE MUMMY. I find myself guardedly optimistic about Universal’s self-reinvention as a monster house with its Dark Universe imprint. Even though the constant reaching back that has come to define Hollywood speaks to a lack of invention, I’m a sucker for classic monster movies. The sticking point here, of course, is that word “classic.” These are movies from 70-plus years ago and, for the most part, not exactly fresh in our minds. But the iconography, the design and the characters are very much a part of our cinematic consciousness. So by all means, Universal, bring back the classics but give us new classics to replace or stand beside them. The Mummy, for all its fun and minor stylistic successes, makes me think that is not what we are going to get. Through a series of perhaps too-convenient coincidences, opportunistic Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) and his sidekick Chris Vail (Jake Johnson) — who are apparently active-duty Army on long range recon patrol, but who have the leeway and autonomy to spend all of their time gallivanting around the Middle East, stealing antiquities — find themselves aligned with Jenny Halsey (Annabelle Wallis), some kind of archaeologist (?) searching for the tomb of an ancient Egyptian princess. Said princess, Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella), made a pact with the god of death some years back, angling to secure ultimate and everlasting power. She got caught before she could seal the deal, though, and was imprisoned
in the above-mentioned tomb. But Nick and Chris, being bumbling and hubristic, let her out; the race to get her back in the box is on. The Mummy differentiates itself from some of the more forgettable monster shows of recent years by calling back the classics stylistically and infusing the story with some much-needed humor. But it still suffers from over-slickness and under-writing, despite or because of the presence of seven (!) credited screenwriters. Tom Cruise does his movie star thing, Jake Johnson provides some perhaps too obvious comic relief, despite his best efforts; Boutella doesn’t have much to work with. Russell Crowe appears as Dr. Henry Jekyll and briefly as the other guy as well. PG13. 110M. BROADWAY, FORTUNA, MILL CREEK.

Legal Notices NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF WILLIAM W WRIGHT CASE NO. PR170161 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of WILLIAM W WRIGHT A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by Petitioner, KENNETH WALTER WRIGHT In the Superior Court of California, County of Humboldt. The petition for probate requests that KENNETH WALTER WRIGHT be appointed as personal representative to admin− ister the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the dece− dent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for exami− nation in the file kept by court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on June 29, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. at the Superior Court of California, County of Humboldt, 825 Fifth Street, Eureka, in Dept.: 4. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objec− tions or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the dece− dent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the Cali− fornia Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in Cali− fornia law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person inter− ested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE−154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. PETITIONER: KENNETH WALTER WRIGHT 5291 W LINDA LANE CHANDLER, AZ 85226 June 2, 2017

If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this infor− mation. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, benefi− ciary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

“Nuclear Batteries” The future of electricity? By Barry Evans
n keeping with the “unpopular opinions” theme of this issue, I want to make a case for nuclear power. Not nuclear power as we normally think of it — vast generating stations (and equally vast price tags) with their domed reactor buildings and shapely cooling towers — but small modular reactors, or SMRs. Comparing SMRs with conventional nuclear stations is almost like equating nuclear power with nuclear weapons, which, however irrational, is often done, as if generating electricity from nuclear fission is on a par with the evils of weaponry. Currently, 99 large (1,000- to 2,000-megawatt) nuclear reactors in the United States provide about 20 percent of the nation’s electricity needs, compared to about 15 percent from renewable energy sources (hydro, solar and wind). Meanwhile, two-thirds of our electricity comes from the burning of greenhouse gas-spewing fossil fuels. Paris Accords or not, none of these numbers is going to change in the short term. And with the future of renewables still a long-term proposition, we’re going to have to rely on nuclear power to handle our insatiable demand for electricity — or else live with the ravages of coal and other fossil fuels. In the medium term, nuclear power is our best bet for relatively clean energy. While no nuclear plant is ever going to be 100 percent problem-free, newer systems are far, far safer than the older Three Mile Island-style designs. The third-generation, 1,100-megawatt Westinghouse AP1000, for instance, incorporates a gravity-fed passive core cooling system, meaning it doesn’t rely on external power to cool the reactor in the event of a catastrophic malfunction (the main design failure at Fukushima). Large nuclear power plants have been and will continue to be financial boondoggles, costing anywhere from $5 billion to $15 billion and taking up to 20 years from initial design to operation. (More than two-thirds of the cost of nuclear power goes into paying back construction costs and associated finance charges, plus funding future decommissioning.) The AP1000, for instance, was supposed to be economically viable, yet Westinghouse declared bankruptcy even before the first plant, in China, was brought on line, and the design is now only kept alive by the resources of

Toshiba, its parent company. Compared to 1,000-megawatt conventional plants (rule of thumb: one megawatt powers 1,000 households), the output of SMRs is a modest 25100 megawatts. These modular “nuclear batteries” will be pre-fabricated at a plant, shipped to the site by barge, train or truck, and installed — typically underground in a pool of water — singly or in banks. Currently, the most advanced SMR is NuScale’s 65-footlong, 9-foot-diameter light water reactor (originally designed at Oregon State University). Relying on convection and gravity to circulate water, the module’s passive-safe design needs no external power to cool it down in an emergency. Each NuScale module will generate 4550 megawatts of electricity, so a bank of 12 could supply the needs of a million-plus population. Building identical units at a central manufacturing facility is inherently safer than in-situ construction of a conventional nuclear power station, while the cost of a single NuScale SMR is estimated at about one-twentieth of that of a 1,000-megawatt plant. Plus, the modular units can be readily swapped out and/or decommissioned. This optimistic scenario is all in the future, with the first NuScale scheduled to come on line in 2026. My fingers are firmly crossed for the success of this and other SMRs, which have the potential to transform the nuclear electric industry with safe and economical alternatives to huge power stations. ● Barry Evans (email@example.com) never believed nuclear power would give us electricity too cheap to meter.
