residents each week? Homelessness may not be news but if there were people still homeless from a natural catastrophe that happened a year ago, the Journal would probably report on them weekly until every last one was housed again. Our houseless neighbors are suffering from an even deeper catastrophe. They urgently need our immediate help. Other voices seldom heard are Native residents and, well, anyone who isn’t white. Please invite their voices more often. Being pro-actively more inclusive increases readership, making for a wider and wiser community discussion of the topics of the day. How about expanding the number of cartoons that have social commentary? We live in extraordinary times. Let’s acknowledge that more sharply. The marijuana industry is convulsing. Our economic fate hangs in the balance. Can we track this a little more closely? Can we talk about climate change immigration and other elements that may comprise or bear upon the next economic wave in Humboldt? May we please have a quarterly “State of the Environment” report?

‘Petty Things’ Editor: Picked up your rag at a motel in Fortuna (“The Media Literacy Issue,” July 7). Wow, you are obviously liberal and anti-Trump. The economy is improving, employment is robust, tax reform and deregulation is working, job creators are upbeat and optimistic, and it looks like there is going to denuclearization and peace in the Korean peninsula. These are just a few of the many things
that President Trump has accomplished and they are important to me and the millions of people who voted for him. We don’t care about the petty things you liberal sore losers are focusing on. Remember: It’s the economy, Stupid. Dora Costa, Brookings, Oregon
Support KHSU Editor: Responding to Kathleen Marshall’s letter to your paper June 14 asking that KHSU members and underwriters withdraw their financial contributions to the station to force the re-employment of Katie Whiteside and the firing of the General Manager Peter Fretwell, I say: Please do not do that. As a sustaining member and longtime listener to KHSU, I can’t believe that Katie would want the financial stability of the station to be jeopardized by her departure. She leaves many friends and co-workers whose employment could be compromised with significant reductions in station revenues and support. KHSU plays an important role in informing, educating and entertaining members of our immediate community and beyond. Katie played an important role in these activities and I will miss her unique style. Personnel matters are confidential and the KHSU public may never know the circumstances surrounding her departure. If this was not a legal termination, I hope Katie is pursuing her options. In the meantime, please do not cause short and long term harm to KHSU by withdrawing your support. Our radio community would be not be the same without it. Nancy Corral, Eureka
he didn’t hesitate to pardon former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio before he served a day of punishment for being found guilty of violating court orders related to racial profiling when searching for suspected illegal immigrants (“The Best and Worst of Us,” Sept. 7, 2017). He said Arpaio was worthy of a pardon based on his many years of service in law enforcement. Now it is told in both the Old and New Testaments that God is a compassionate God. So why can’t Trump, who has God-like powers
when it comes to federal law, show the same compassion to the comparatively innocent illegal immigrant families that he showed to the guilty Joe Arpaio? Instead of doing nothing besides continuing to falsely blame the Democrats for the law behind this situation, he could instead simply direct Attorney General Sessions to allow these immigrant families to be detained together. I think God would smile. Sherman Schapiro, Blue Lake

Pardon Me? Editor: According to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the US government has a right to separate immigrant children from their parents when they cross the border illegally. Sessions says this right was defined by Apostle Paul through “his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes.” However, by the US law as defined in Article II, Section 2 of the United States Constitution, the president has been given the right to pardon individuals who have been found guilty of federal crimes. In a sense, then, the president has been given the power to play God as his pardon power supersedes what otherwise would be dictated by the criminal law of the land. This is nothing new as presidents of both parties have granted numerous pardons over the years. But in the case of Trump, I have some problems.

McKinleyville Man Alleges Police Falsified Reports in Murder Case By Thadeus Greenson email@example.com
yle Zoellner, the McKinleyville man accused last year of fatally stabbing a Humboldt State University student on April 15, 2017, has filed a lawsuit against the city of Arcata alleging police and city officials violated his civil rights. Zoellner — who was arrested at the scene of an off-campus party where David Josiah Lawson, 19, was stabbed to death during an altercation but was later released from custody after charges were dismissed — filed the lawsuit last month seeking damages in excess of $25,000 and alleging officers failed to get him proper medical attention and falsified police reports in the case. (The Journal was unable to obtain a copy of the lawsuit for weeks as the case file was with Humboldt County Superior Court judges who were, evidently, having some trouble determining who would preside over the case, as three of them worked in the public defender’s office when it represented Zoellner and a fourth heard Zoellner’s criminal case.) In his complaint, Zoellner makes four basic allegations: That officers lacked probable cause to arrest him, that they filed false reports in order to get prosecutors to charge Zoellner with murder, that they failed to provide Zoellner with “necessary” medical attention when he was detained and that the city defamed him with its public statements. The 24-year-old chef is representing himself in the case. Criminal charges against Zoellner were dismissed May 5, 2017, when Humboldt County Superior Court Judge Dale Reinholtsen found after a five-day hearing that there was insufficient evidence to hold him to stand trial. In explaining his ruling, Reinholtsen said prosecutors failed to present a single witness who saw a knife in Zoellner’s hand that night, much less one who claimed to have seen the fatal stabbing. Additionally, he said there was no physical evidence connecting Zoellner to Lawson’s killing or to a 10-inch kitchen knife found at the crime scene. In the year since Reinholtsen’s ruling, an investigation into Lawson’s death has continued and, based on a variety of public statements, it appears Zoellner remains the only suspect in the case. The open homi-
cide case — the only one in Arcata dating back decades — has caused wide fissures in the local community and brought racial tensions to the forefront, as Zoellner is white and Lawson was black, and some have alleged racial bias may have played a role in the various altercations that preceded Lawson’s stabbing that night. On the eve of the anniversary of Lawson’s death, Tom Parker, a retired FBI agent who was volunteering his time to consult Arcata police on the investigation, stepped down from that role, later telling the Journal he did so because he came to feel the department wasn’t following his recommendations, was actively withholding information from him and being dishonest with him. Less than 24 hours after Parker notified the city he was stepping away, Police Chief Tom Chapman abruptly resigned his post with the city, effective immediately. Lawson’s mother then promptly filed a claim for damages against the city — the first step toward a civil lawsuit — essentially alleging Arcata police have botched the investigation into her son’s death. Zoellner’s court filing notes that the incident began when he arrived at a residence off Spear Avenue around 3 a.m. to pick up his girlfriend and her three friends, who had been attending a party there. Zoellner’s girlfriend had lost her new iPhone and Zoellner writes that he was heading inside to ask the “owner of the residence” to give him a call if it turned up when he came across Kyle and Kristoff Castillo near the front porch and “politely asked” the brothers about the missing phone. Zoellner alleges that the Castillos “got agitated” and a fight ensued. (Testimony at the preliminary hearing indicated it was Zoellner and Lawson’s girlfriends who first turned the confrontation physical.) According to Zoellner’s complaint, Lawson joined the Castillos and the three of them started beating him up. “Zoellner was assaulted and beaten by the three men and didn’t even have a chance to defend himself,” the complaint states. “One person ran into the house and got others. People poured out of the house and at least 10 to 15 people joined in and the assault continued. He was unconscious and on the ground in a fetal

from Dokweiler, who said “numerous witnesses had detained Zoellner and indicated he had stabbed” Lawson and that “Zoellner had admitted he was involved in a physical fight with the victim.” As noted above, Zoellner is representing himself in the case — a fact that is evident in portions of his filing. At various points, he uses exclamation marks — “This did not happen!!” and, “This is a false statement!” — which isn’t customary in legal filings. In certain portions of the complaint that recount preliminary hearing testimony, he also seems David Josiah Lawson. to have cut and File pasted from media reporting on the case. And a portion of the complaint that recounts his father’s recollection of the events of April 15, 2017, uses the pronoun “I” in reference to his father, a seeming indication that Zoellner cut and pasted from a statement his father provided. University of California Hastings law professor David Levine reviewed the complaint at the request of the Journal and said Zoellner clearly made some mistakes in crafting it — he mixes up the language of state and federal civil rights statutes and misuses the pleading rules for including unknown defendants, for example — but those likely aren’t catastrophic. But there appear to be larger problems, Levine said. First off, while Zoellner’s complaint attempts to name specific officers as defendants, Levine said police officers have widespread immunity under state and federal laws. Further, because Zoellner declined medical care at the scene, he will have to prove he was so obviously compromised that a “reasonable officer” would have known he was incapable of making that decision, Levine said, stressing that the threshold is what an average officer should have known, not what a medical professional might have decided. When it comes to the allegations that
Arcata police falsified reports in the case, Levine said simple errors or negligence are generally protected. “The plaintiff would have to show a higher level of bad intent,” Levine said, indicating that Zoellner would have to prove that officers knew the statements were incorrect but filed them anyway in an effort to see Zoellner charged. The city of Arcata still has not been legally served with a copy of the lawsuit and City Manager Karen Diemer declined to discuss it, instead offering a brief statement indicating that because the subject of the complaint is still under investigation, the city cannot comment other than to say it has been referred to legal counsel. Responding to a message left on Zoellner’s cell phone seeking comment for this story, an unidentified man left the following message at the Journal’s office: “Do not ever call this number ... ever again. If you do, I will get you for harassment.” l Editor’s note: This story first appeared online at www.northcoastjournal.com. Thadeus Greenson is the Journal’s news editor.

The County’s $3.5 Million Settlement
Borges family negotiates additional training, medical protocol in wake of jail death By Thadeus Greenson email@example.com
he county of Humboldt has settled the federal civil rights lawsuit stemming from the 2014 jail death of Daren Borges, agreeing to pay Borges’ family $3.5 million in damages and legal fees, and to make various changes to jail policy. Borges, 42, a homeless, schizophrenic poet and artist, was living in Eureka at the time of his June 13, 2014, arrest on suspicion of public intoxication. Eureka police officers arrested him at about 2:15 p.m.
near the corner of Seventh and D streets and booked him into the jail 25 minutes later. Correctional officers placed Borges alone in a sobering cell, where he was found unresponsive about an hour and 20 minutes later. In August, a federal jury found county correctional officers failed to follow policy and recklessly disregarded Borges’ obvious medical needs and effectively caused his death when they rushed him through the booking process and opted not to have

him medically screened before placing him into the sobering cell where he died of a methamphetamine overdose. The jury, which deliberated for about 10 hours before returning its unanimous verdicts, also found that Humboldt County had failed to adequately train its correctional officers. Immediately after the jury’s $2.5 million
verdict, the county indicated it would seek to have the judgment thrown out and ask for a new trial in the case but it appears settlement negotiations have been underway since October, according to court records. Journal attempts to reach County Counsel Jeff Blanck for this story were unsuccessful but Dale Galipo, who along

with John Fattahi represented Borges’ family, said the county “quickly realized” case law and evidence were contrary to its position in the case and there was a “strong likelihood” that a continued effort to fight the verdict would only drive up attorneys’ fees. Fattahi said a recent ruling from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals bolstered the legal standard used in Borges’ case — essentially saying that correctional officers have a duty to intervene in situations where pre-trial detainees are in a state that a reasonable person would see as requiring medical care. Seeing the Ninth Circuit case, Fattahi said the county realized settlement was its best option. And that represented an abrupt change of course, the attorneys said, as the county had been unwilling to seriously discuss settlement prior to trial. “They made no offer,” Fattahi said, adding that he and Galipo made several offers over the course of two or three settlement conferences but all were rejected. “For whatever reason,” Galipo said, “I think they were convinced they were going to win.”
Blanck told the Times-Standard he is pleased the county was able to settle the case but “not pleased with the dollar amount,” adding that he thinks jail staff was put in a difficult situation because they didn’t know how much meth Borges had ingested and he “displayed no definitive symptoms for meth.” Evidence presented at trial in the case shows that while county booking policy dictated that jail staff had to answer 35 questions — things like whether Borges showed physical signs of trauma, appeared intoxicated, seemed oriented to self, date, time and place and suffered from mental illness — do a full pat-down search and remove his shoes and socks before booking him, correctional officers rushed through the process in about two minutes and 40 seconds. In video of the booking process, it doesn’t appear as though Borges is speaking or answering questions, though the video does show him sweating profusely and listing from side to side. Once placed in the sobering cell, the video shows Borges stripping off

clothes, splashing water on his face from the toilet and writhing on the floor over the course of about 45 minutes before falling still in an awkward position on his side. Correctional officers would realize he wasn’t breathing and enter the cell to find him dead about 41 minutes later. The settlement stipulates that $2.5 million of the $3.5 million total will go to Borges’ mother, Stephany Borges, with the remainder going to pay legal fees. The settlement also includes some “nonmonetary provisions.” These include that the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office will implement mandatory trainings on recognizing methamphetamine toxicity during the jail’s pre-booking process, implement trainings on excited delirium, modify sobering cell policies to incorporate Institute for Medical Quality standards, enact a policy to track and document the training of correctional staff and enact a policy “ensuring all jail staff receive Medical Issues training” prior to completing their field training programs. Galipo said these negotiated policy changes were incredibly important to the Borges family. “It was really never about the money for our client,” he said. Contacted for this story, Stephany Borges and her daughter Sofia Borges provided the Journal with a joint statement. “Our family is deeply relieved that this four-year fight has finally come to an end,” the statement reads. “The reforms that the county and jail have agreed to will save lives. This verdict and outcome speaks volumes about the importance of taking our constitutional rights seriously. No one should ever be denied the fundamental right to necessary, life-saving medical care. We are grateful to our lawyers for fighting for Daren and all the others that don’t have the opportunity to speak for themselves. We are grateful to our civil jury of local residents for taking a stand and holding their community and the powers that be accountable to the law and their own policies. Daren was not the first to die unjustly at this jail, but we sincerely hope that with these new critical medical training and screening procedures in place that he will be the last. Thank you for respecting our privacy as we move forward and conclude our grieving process.” Fattahi, who negotiated the non-monetary portion of the settlement, said the large $2.5 million verdict and rising attorneys’ fees gave him the leverage to ne-

gotiate the provisions of the settlement from the county in exchange for lowering its total payout. The terms, he said, were aimed at pushing the jail toward standard best practices and also addressing some of the deficiencies highlighted by the Borges case. For example, Fattahi said one of the two correctional deputies who screened Borges when booking him into jail hadn’t been trained on how to identify medical symptoms of an overdose and the other hadn’t received the training in the past three years. “We thought it was important that the county couldn’t just say, ‘The jury made a mistake,’ and then go back to standard operating procedure,” he said. “We really felt they need to give the officers the training they need to recognize when somebody needs medical attention.” Humboldt County Sheriff William Honsal said jail policies had already changed before the jury verdict in the Borges case to require that a nurse evaluate every person booked into jail custody. The jail also now has protocols in place to make sure an inmate detoxing in custody — whether from alcohol, heroin or another substance — gets the required medical supervision and care. Honsal said the added training requirements under the settlement are positive, noting that the jail has a lot of correctional officers with less than five years experience. Honsal noted that the jail books about 10,000 inmates annually, with about 3,000 of them coming into the facility after public intoxication or under the influence arrests. “The fact is that we have a highly addicted population,” he said. “We’re seeing more and more people under the influence and that’s something we have to deal with in the jail, but it’s something we’re also going to need help on the outside to address.” Fattahi noted that the settlement agreement is binding and remains under the jurisdiction of a federal judge to enforce its terms, including the added trainings, medical protocols and record keeping. “Certainly,” Fattahi said, “I intend to make sure the county is complying with it.” l Thadeus Greenson is the Journal’s news editor.

616 H STREET • EUREKA
By Jim Hight
hen the young female gun control activist started talking earnestly with the burly firearms pro — a man who had earlier proclaimed that many gun laws don’t make sense — I knew that we had succeeded in creating a respectful, constructive dialogue about this intensely polarizing topic. Around the room at Eureka’s Wharfinger Building, a dozen other small groups of political opposites were talking like neighbors: People who wanted stricter gun laws chatted with gun owners who were strongly pro Second Amendment; a man who’d said that in an ideal world there’d be no guns was listening to a couple of passionate National Rifle Association members. When we reconvened the whole group, it was obvious that many of the 40 attendees had been inspired by the dialogue. Some made offers to connect after the forum. One invited gun-wary people to accompany him to the firing range to learn about gun safety. Several asked when the next forum would be held and at least one offered to help organize it. (My co-facilitator Jess Pettitt and I have no plans for another forum but the Eureka Interfaith Fellowship will hold one on Aug. 26; follow the fellowship on Facebook for more info.) We didn’t come up with any new ideas or policies but simply having the conversation that never seems to happen was valuable in itself. “It built a sense of community and I think that’s important, whether we solve anything or not,” Andy Broese told me later. Broese sells firearms at his Broese’s Uniforms, and he supported the event, along with Blue Ox Millworks, Cooperation Humboldt, the Humboldt Area Center for Harm Reduction, Humboldt Domestic Violence Services and Pacific Outfitters. This kind of community building is getting harder to accomplish — and more important than ever. Since the 2016 presidential election, we’ve seen how political disagreements divide families and end friendships. News and social media feed us information designed to confirm and intensify our biases — and politicians
and advocacy groups on the left and right demonize the other side in their quest for more money and/or votes. Neuroscience and social psychology research help explain why we’re so susceptible to partisan thinking, why political disagreements can rupture friendships and communities and how the experience of airing our disagreements in a respectful way can bring us together. It turns out that we’re hard-wired by evolution to react with fear and anger when our version of reality is challenged. “Different facts can threaten our sense of status and survival,” said local consultant and author Mary Gelinas in a recent webinar on the neuroscience of collaboration. “In the face of difference, especially when the issues at hand are important to us, we can become anxious, even angry, as the more primitive parts of the brain take charge and drive us to do combat, flee the scene or play possum,” writes Gelinas in her book, Talk Matters: Solving Complex Issues Through Brain Science, Mindful Awareness and Effective Process. In Gelinas’s view, poorly run public meetings often trigger this kind of reactivity. “Although survival is rarely at stake in a meeting, it can feel as if it is [and] behaviors like interruptions or criticisms of ideas can evoke hurt, fear or anger and self-protective behaviors in any of us,” she writes. Jess knows these dynamics well after facilitating many contentious community conversations around the country. At her suggestion, we sat in a big circle — a physical demonstration that all were equal. And we started the forum with an open sharing round, in which each person was given up to two minutes to speak without interruptions, comments, cheers or jeers. Jess also knew we needed to limit our ambitions for the forum. I’d hoped that we could incorporate a back-and-forth discussion about a proposed law, like Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s assault weapons ban or Arcata’s safe storage ordinance. But she knew we wouldn’t have enough time. (My short overview of current gun law controversies is available on the Journal’s website.)
I hope the good people of Humboldt County can experience similar facilitated conversations on the issues that divide us, such as needle exchanges, homeless policies and the conflicts that Arcata is going through now over racial justice and the McKinley statue. Or even national issues, like abortion and immigration. People may not budge from their original positions, but the experience of sharing their views and hearing the views of others in a respectful manner can minimize personal divisions and build connections across the ideological lines. As the gun laws forum broke up, some participants lingered and talked in the parking lot under a gorgeous twilight sky. I doubt anyone left with a changed view of the gun control issue. The pro Second Amendment folks probably still view gun violence as a social problem, not a gun problem that can be addressed through more regulations. And the pro gun control participants will likely pursue more restrictions. But the very act of sharing their conflicting views in a mutually respectful way had psychic rewards. “Part of building community is building understanding with people who have different perspectives, views and values from us,” said Broese. For collaboration guru Gelinas, these types of dialogues are becoming more and more necessary. “Although survival in the past depended on being part of a family or tribe, it now depends on our ability to relate effectively with those whom we perceive as being outside our tribe or group.” l Jim Hight is an independent journalist and fledgling facilitator of difficult conversations.

Christie Pleads Not Guilty to 35 Charges in Cruelty Case
aymond Christie has pleaded not guilty to 35 criminal charges, including seven felony counts, mostly related to animal cruelty and neglect on his properties throughout northern Humboldt County, according to Deputy District Attorney Adrian Kamada. Included in the charges are seven counts of felony cruelty by “failing to provide sustenance, drink, shelter or subjecting any animal to needless suffering” relating to cattle, a goat and a pig across different Christie-owned properties in Orick, McKinleyville, Trinidad, Arcata and Eureka. The remaining 28 charges are misdemeanors under California Fish and Game Code 5652(a) related to disposal of litter or carcasses “within 150 feet of a state waterway.” Christie is charged with disposing multiple cattle carcasses near waterways on most of his properties. The complaint specifies that more than 200 cattle carcasses were dumped near waterways on his Jackson Ranch Road property in Arcata. In March, the sheriff ’s office confirmed to the Journal that Christie had returned

to the Humboldt County Auction and picked up more cattle after he was released from jail. HCSO spokesperson Samantha Karges explained to the Journal that Christie had bid on the cattle prior to being arrested and — once he posted $25,000 bail — he was able to pay for the animals.. According to Kamada, if Christie is convicted of animal cruelty, the law allows for a person to be prohibited from “owning, possessing or having custody or control of any animals for a period of five years.” “Prior to a conviction, there are legal procedures that could allow authorities to seize a specific, individual animal from a person, albeit temporarily,” Kamada told the Journal. A felony conviction would also prohibit Christie from owning or purchasing firearms. Christie’s next court date is Aug. 14, though Kamada said prosecutors intend to file a motion this week seeking to increase Christie’s bail. — Linda Stansberry
The music department at Eureka High School has a little more string in its step after a gift from a famous alum June 14. Music, Broadway, TV and soon-to-be Apple TV star Sara Bareilles teamed up with Yamaha Entertainment Group and Eastman Strings to send her fellow Loggers some string instruments and audio equipment.

Three Californias: An initiative seeking to carve California into three separate states has gathered enough valid signatures to come before voters in November. Even if the measure passes, the new tri-state California would not be automatic, as the plan would still need to be approved by the state Legislature and Congress, which hasn’t given the nod to such a split since West Virginia split from Virginia during the Civil War 155 years ago.

Detained Mom Granted Bail: Claudia Portillo, a 33-year-old mother of four who immigrated to the United States from El Salvador when she was 7, has been granted the opportunity to post $12,000 bail after a seven-month immigration detention. Portillo, of McKinleyville, has been detained since November, when she was unexpectedly taken into custody in San Francisco when she appeared for a “routine” immigration appointment.

‘All the Right Stuff’ By Kym Kemp
s the Eureka-Humboldt Visitors Bureau’s board of directors continues to contemplate its future cannabis efforts, some of its members recently took a tour with the aim of discerning whether the plant might one day be able to mingle among our redwoods, coastline, food, wine and Victorians in the agency’s marketing efforts. As the Journal reported back in May, when the bureau board voted to keep cannabis businesses on a “separate but equal” marketing track, the board seems deeply divided on the subject. On June 14, in hopes of helping the marketing groups appreciate the possibilities of canna-tourism, the Southern Humboldt Business and Visitors Bureau sponsored a tour for members of its Eureka counterpart, the Humboldt Lodging Alliance and others. Kevin Jodrey, well-known cannabis personality, led the first stop at the One Log House where he is a partner. He introduced the group to an integrated traditional tourism and cannabis business —from the kitschy but cute house made from one redwood log to the gift shop/ cafe to the cannabis store that sells locally grown products. If the tour members were expecting giant marijuana leaf posters and flashing neon signs, the natural wood interior and discreetly displayed merchandise soothed their fears. Jodrey started out by reassuring the
group that the goal should be to integrate cannabis into the already-existing tourism culture — not to wave it prominently ahead of all of Humboldt’s other draws. He said cannabis should be “a button on the shirt, not the other way round.” Jodrey pointed out that legalization has so far had a serious financial impact on the area. “Overall, the county is experiencing a downturn,” he said, adding that he is a long-time resident who plans on staying and raising his 5-year-old child here. He urged all the disparate groups to work together because the county would be better served by unity. “I do everything I can to keep the money in town,” Jodrey told the group. “It is really better if my neighbor has a job.” He said he was determined to make the cannabis business and other businesses thrive. “I’m not going anywhere,” he stated. “Here is where we fight.” He talked about plans to funnel tourists who came to the One Log business at the southern border of Humboldt County to businesses further north. He mentioned wineries, the Lost Coast, Avenue of the Giants, Ferndale, Old Town, the Sequoia Park Zoo and Trinidad, as well as cannabis businesses. He pointed out that the average customer in One Log’s cannabis shop has made purchases totaling $50 to $70. His not-so-subtle point is that these were

desirable tourists with money to spend. As the group left the first stop, one member leaned to another and murmured, “He’s saying all the right stuff.” The tour then drove out the winding Briceland Road to the site of Johnny Casali’s Huckleberry Hill Farms. Beside a pond and a cannabis greenhouse in flower, Casali talked about his dreams as a small farmer (he cultivates under 5,000 square feet of marijuana) and his work with the community. Casali says he supports several nonprofits including Sanctuary Forest and the Veterans Cannabis Group, for which he grows a therapeutic but not psychoactive cannabis strain to donate. One of his cannabis strains is part of Willie’s Reserve — a brand owned by country music star Willie Nelson. Another strain was featured in a cannabis swag bag offered to film glitterati at the Oscars by his distributor Flow Kana. Casali spent his childhood on the property. In a voice occasionally choked with tears, he described being arrested and charged federally with growing marijuana in 1993. He spent eight years in prison. His mother died while he was incarcerated. Today, he is the only permitted farm in the valley. “John has always been a good guy,” said recently retired Humboldt County Sheriff’s Lt. Kenny Swithenbank, who attended the tour. “I knew him when he went away.” Casali said he loves his community in part because it was so supportive to his family. “When I walked out of jail, there was 50 people sitting in my front yard waiting to help,” he said with tears in his eyes. “My goal is to take care of the people that supported me in my time of need.” Galen Doherty, program director at Sanctuary Forest, spoke after Casali. He said that his organization received a great deal of support from cannabis growers. Because of marijuana’s illegality, people who cared about the environment in the underground industry “haven’t had an opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to the environment,” he explained. “We raised over $500,000 in 14 months for Sanctuary Forest,” in part, because of cannabis growers. “It is not what you are growing but how you are doing it,” he said. As the tour wrapped up, Terra Carver, executive director of the Humboldt County Growers Alliance, told the group, “We look forward to a long and prosperous future together.” l Editor’s note: This article was first published on www.kymkemp.com and is reprinted here with permission.

Late Shift with the EPD What Eureka’s police officers see after dark By Linda Stansberry firstname.lastname@example.org
Photos by Mark McKenna
Wednesday May 30, 2018, 8:30 p.m.-2 a.m. Ride along with Sgt. Leonard La France and K9 officer Vex.
he E-watch shift starts with a briefing at 8:30 p.m. Sgt. Leonard La France addresses the three officers sitting at a narrow conference room table: Raymond Nunez, Matthew White and Elliott Aello. Bald with an easy smile, La France has a decade on the three officers under his charge. A career government employee, he worked for the United States Forest Service for seven years before joining the Eureka Police Department in 2007. He was 28 at the time, older than most new recruits, and was promoted to sergeant in 2017. He works alongside his K9 partner, “Vex,” a 10-year-old Belgian Malinois. The briefing starts with a list of missing people and stolen vehicles: Be on the lookout for a white 2010 Buick LeSabre; a juvenile missing since Monday, wearing a green sweatshirt and black shorts; the name of a man who ran away from Crestwood Behavioral Health is familiar to the officers; they all sigh. La France mentions seeing a woman they contact often, saying she is now pregnant, and the men sigh again. Nunez spent part of the previous night getting an arrestee medically cleared at the hospital — a duty that, according to La France, officers performed 2,100 times in 2017. In that same year, according to Chief Steve Watson, EPD officers made 3,424 custodial arrests, more than double the totals of the Arcata Police Department (1,568) or the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office (1,555). The rapid pace of an average shift, the ability to interact with a large number of people and proactively police what — population wise — might in other locales be considered a sleepy town, has been touted as a recruitment tool for would-be EPD officers. Retention is an ongoing issue and the majority of officers have been with the agency fewer than five years. They work 10- and 12-hour shifts, depending on the day of the week, rotating through A (morning-afternoon), C (afternoon-evening) and E (evening-early morning) watches for four months at a time. According to Watson, the current schedule takes 22 officers and five sergeants to fully staff (excluding special assignments), but vacations, sick leave and training mean the agency is frequently unable to fully staff its watches. The E Watch officers claim their beats, with some gentle ribbing of Aello who, once again, volunteers to cover Beat Three on the quieter east end of town. La France will be circling the city with Continued on page 17 »

upset me,” he tells the officers. “Do you need to go across the street and get a milkshake and calm down?” Nunez asks him. “No,” the man says, “I’m calm. You’re not going to hear from me again.” “OK, so we’re not going to be back here tonight?” La France reiterates. “No sir,” the man says. “Because if you are, that will mean I failed.” The officers radio in that they’ve finished, return to their vehicles and drive off in different directions. It’s close to midnight when dispatchers report a potential kidnapping: Eyewitnesses saw a female being pulled into a green Subaru in front of the abandoned K-Mart. La France heads south. The other officers are checking the main drags in other parts of town. No luck. Another call: A woman screaming on Pine Street. When La France arrives on scene, White and Nunez are already there. La France stops briefly to talk to a quartet of young men smoking cigarettes on the front porch of a neighboring house. He hails one, who knows him from sight, and asks how work on the fishing boats is going. “Good, it’s packing season now,” he replies. “How’s your mom doing?” La France asks. The kid shrugs. “Not good, huh? Oh well, you’re doing good anyway,” La France says. “It sounds like someone is getting murdered over there,” the young man says. La France says his goodbyes and finds the open gate to the backyard where Aello and Nunez are standing, trying to calm down a wailing teenage girl sitting on a low stone wall. Two other teenage girls stand by, repeating her name as an elderly woman hovers, smoking a cigarette. “You’re so fucking stupid,” the crying girl is telling Nunez. “I’m telling you all I want to do is see my best friend and now I’m in trouble for nothing.” “You tried to jump out of the car on the highway,” says one of the other girls, her sister, it turns out. Nunez sidebars with La France: “She was saying something about her mom and her dad, this is her grandmother’s house here.” The girl’s wailing increases in volume. Her mom punched her and her stepdad sat on her, she insists, that’s why she ran away. “I just want to go see my friend but she’s mad at me because the police came,” she says. “You need to give her some space,” her sister says. “She’s my best friend and I am going to
see her,” the girl howls. She goes into the house and slams the door. The officers piece the story together. The girl ran away from her parents’ house and her sister and friends drove up and down Eureka until they found her, taking her to her grandmother, who is her legal guardian. “Is that your car?” Nunez asks the sister, pointing out to the street. She affirms. It’s the green Subaru. “Can she stay with you for the night?” La France asks the grandmother. She says yes but adds that if the girl leaves again, she’s not well enough to “chase her down.” The girl storms back out. “Cops are fucking stupid, they don’t do shit,” she says. “Are you going to stay here?” Nunez asks. “Grandma, if she leaves, will you call us?” “I’m not going to wait a second. I will call you,” the grandmother confirms. “I’m not fucking staying,” the girl says, louder now. Nunez raises his voice to a place just short of exasperation: “Stop. Yelling.” She does, going inside and slamming the door again. Her grandmother extinguishes her cigarette with a sigh. La France returns to Vex and his patrol car, taking a call about a vehicle prowler on I Street. The suspect is wearing dark clothes and could be anywhere on the side streets, in the shadows. The sergeant cruises and looks. Vex whines. The hardest part about being a cop for a long time, La France says, is that you lose a lot of the optimism that brings you into the profession in the first place. Every corner of the city, every street, gas station and parking lot holds reminders of when you found someone bleeding out, dying of an overdose or hit by a drunk driver, past saving. “We want wins, but we’re working in a world where there are no wins,” La France says. It’s almost 1 a.m. when a call comes over the scanner directing the officers back to Pine Street. The girl has crawled out of the window of her grandmother’s house and run off again, back out into the dark. Nunez intercepts her and sends her back to grandma’s house once again.

“It was pitch black out there,” says La France. “I wouldn’t have found you if I hadn’t gotten out of my car and listened.” Nunez says Langevin grabbed his head and reached for his duty belt. “So this is active resistance,” La France says. He asks, “What’s on your duty belt?” “Lots of weapons,” Nunez says. “You’re literally by yourself, in the darkness, trying to get away,” La France says. “If I had known he was armed and dangerous, I might have done it differently,” Nunez admits. The officers choose their beats again, with White choosing Beat 1 on the north end of town. He starts his shift by driving Fifth Street and turning onto S to park the cruiser facing southbound toward McDonald’s. People tend to congregate there, he says, often crossing in front of passing cars. White likes to be visible where they get a lot of calls for service. He lights up a jaywalking teenager with a bag of burgers in one hand and a cigarette in another but lets him off with a warning.

ington State University with a degree in political science with an emphasis in global politics. He studied in Vietnam and traveled with a church group to Chile. He went back to school for his master’s degree, again in political science, penning his thesis on Muammar al-Qaddafi’s speech patterns in 2011. He had a good job with the Transportation Security Administration, he says, but a friend suggested he try working with the Los Angeles Police Department to “get a little excitement in his life.” Working for the LAPD, he says, proved challenging. “It was very different from where I grew up,” he says. “I was raised in a very upper-class neighborhood. I wasn’t used to the violence, wasn’t used to the hate crimes. It was a very dark time for me.” He says he saw things there that he hasn’t been able to talk about to anyone. He likes Humboldt better. Former EPD Chief Andrew Mills made a pitch about the area’s quality of life and the community’s relative friendliness toward police officers. He liked the pitch and he liked Mills. When he first got here, he carried over some of his old habits, refusing to wave at the California Highway Patrol officers — “In L.A., we hated the CHP” — but since arriving in 2015, he’s assimilated. The first time a sheriff’s deputy waved at him and he didn’t wave back, his trainer asked him why. “We like the sheriff’s office here,” the senior officer told him. Now, White waves. He hopes to become a detective after a few years. A lot of White’s beat is traffic — stopping pedestrians, bicyclists without lights, speeding cars. He gave out more tickets last year than any other officer. In grad school he was fascinated by the “broken windows” theory of policing as implemented by New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton under Mayor Rudy Giuliani: Take care of the small problems, the broken windows, vandalized cars, subway turnstile jumpers, sellers of loose cigarettes, and you’ll take care of a lot of the big problems along the way. In New York, this evolved into Giuliani’s controversial “stop and frisk” policy. White leaves his beat near McDonald’s to assist C Watch at the Taco Bell. The subject of the call is familiar to the officers, a 24-year-old man with a family history of drug use and possible mental illness. Both he and his father tend to drift in and out of the system. Tonight he’s accused of causing a disturbance and physically assaulting the restaurant manager. When White arrives, he’s sitting on the curb, a jumble of wrappers and 2-liter bot-
the “good points and the bad points.” It was around 10:40 p.m. Nunez had recognized a vehicle belonging to a felony warrant suspect Daniel Langevin parked at a gas station on Harris and California streets, and thought he recognized Langevin going into the store. He ran the plate and called dispatch for information. Langevin was considered to be armed; Nunez said that if he had known that he would have made a different decision. “He exits and I recognize him and at this point I think I should radio in,” Nunez tells the officers. Instead he got out of his car and initiated contact with Langevin, who bolted. Nunez followed, jumping over a wall and chasing him south down Pine Street. The two men scuffled on a residential lawn, with Nunez losing his radio and bodyworn camera in the process. “All they could hear in dispatch was a ‘click, click, click,’’’ says La France, who had sped to the gas station to find Nunez’s empty cruiser. La France got out of his vehicle and listened, hearing the nearby struggle as Langevin yelled, “I’m not resisting.”

Soon he’s in handcuffs and standing, the wrappers in his lap blowing across the parking lot. One officer empties his pockets, putting piles of change on the hood of the police car before transferring them to a paper bag to be checked in at the jail. The man yells, which White says is out of character; he’s arrested often but he’s usually cooperative. White gets his own paper bag and rubber gloves and picks up the wrappers and the half-empty soda bottle. “Food and liquids can’t go into the jail,” he says. “If someone wants us to keep something, though, we’ll keep it at the station. Even if it looks like garbage, if he says he wants it, we bag it and mark it.” A lot of items never get picked up; in the corp yard there’s a pile of bikes and backpacks and trash bags. After some time scanning for speeders and a non-citation traffic stop of a man pedaling a bicycle without a back light, White goes to assist officers at WinCo on Harris. The store has complained about a man parked in the lot who has been banned from the store but is refusing to leave. Officers run the name but it’s a wobbly call. The suspect has warrants but the offences are merely citable and if he’s taken to jail he’ll undoubtedly bounce right out. But Nunez makes the arrest anyway, which gives him cause to search the man. Officers find a small baggie of methamphetamine in his hoodie pocket. He puts him in the back of the police car. The suspect, a young man with wide, red eyes, is quiet. Nunez begins methodically searching his car. In a backpack on the backseat there’s a kit with a white bandana, a strap, a needle, a spoon and a condom. Nunez tries and fails to get the trunk open. It appears to be jammed. White asks the suspect to tell him how to open the trunk and maybe they can avoid towing the car. The ruse doesn’t work. Nunez pushes the seats back, looks in the gasoline reservoir, pops the hood.
“He didn’t give us any flack, any fuzz.” “Once I found an AK-47 strapped to the inside of a car hood,” Nunez says. After the car is searched, he locks it again and prepares to take the man to jail. It’s 10:23 p.m. White predicts that the parolee will
probably have a new court date and be back to pick up his car by midnight. (Jail records reflect that he stays until 6 a.m.) “He was very cooperative,” White says, adding that they probably won’t tow the car. “He didn’t give us any flack, any fuzz.” La France says most of his job is to go around and talk to people; officers working on their own, sometimes with limited back up, need to know how to de-escalate situations. One of the sergeant’s most challenging regulars was a very large woman who would periodically get drunk and require a ride to jail. La France would have to subdue her without hurting her or getting hurt. He learned that she liked country music and would play Johnny Cash in his car. Soon she began calling him “Officer Johnny.” After about three years, she went to treatment in Redding. Officers agree that wins like this are few. With the co-occurring issues of mental illness, drug addiction and homelessness generating many of their calls, there is little in the way of either carrot or stick to effect real results. Criminal justice reform has largely decriminalized possession of drugs and paraphernalia; offenses that five to 10 years ago might have sent an arrestee to state-mandated treatment now simply slide off with a citation. The resources that do exist are hard to access: Detox has a waiting list, mental health services are often over burdened, simple medical treatment at the local hospital can mean hours of waiting. White, too, has his regulars, which is why he offers to respond to a call for a woman shoplifting at WinCo, out of his beat. He recognizes her name from previous shoplifting charges. This time it appears that she’s being uncooperative with the staff, who allege they have apprehended her with around $50 worth of merchandise. “Usually she’s OK, but she was involved with a theft at the mall recently where she pepper sprayed someone,” White says. By the time he gets there the woman has calmed down. She’s waiting with smeared mascara in the bright back room of the store, where two loss prevention employees watch her warily. “She’s calmed down now, we don’t want to press charges,” one tells White. “I’m so embarrassed,” she says. She’d been clean for almost a month before she returned to Eureka for her court date and fell back in with her old crowd. She doesn’t know why she stole, she says, but she’s sorry. “They’re saying they’re not going to file charges against you, but you need to leave,” White says. “You’re not going to file charges?” she repeats, putting two hands over her chest.

They open the back door and let everyone into the parking lot. White asks the woman where she’s going and if she needs a ride. She appears to think about it. “I was staying with my cousins but I can’t go back there because they’re not a good influence,” she says. “Maybe I’ll go to my friend on McCullens [Avenue] but I don’t even know if they’re there.” “Can I give you a ride?” “No, no, I can walk there.” “Are you sure?” “Yes, thank you officer White.” White gets back in his car.

in the side mirror, the woman hesitates on the sidewalk for a minute. She can go east, back to her cousins’ house, or south, toward the friends who may or may not be home. Tomorrow she has to find a way back to Southern Humboldt. She looks at the back of the vehicle as though she might change her mind and accept a ride after all. Then she slings her bag over her shoulder and begins to walk south, away from the store and toward where the hazy halogen street lights fade to pitch black. l Linda Stansberry is a staff writer at the Journal.

Blue Lake Casino’s winning shell game. Photo by Jennifer Fumiko Cahill
n Saturday morning, as locals and tourists were still making their way to the plaza from distant parking spaces and (one hopes) slathering on sunscreen, 18 judges crowded around a trio of awkward tables in the lobby of the Jacoby Storehouse. Volunteers brought in candidates for Best Raw, Best Cooked and Best Non-oyster at the Arcata Bay Oyster Festival — ice-packed trays of half shells, (707) 443-7339 paper cups and glasses with shooters, platters aglow with LED lights. Once the judges took their obligatory photos, they slurped the anonymous offerings, dished about their presentation, flavor and creativity, and jotted down their notes on color-coded forms. Whether declining due to the labor and high cost of running a festival stand and sending 18 free oysters to the judges (“Shelling Out,” June 22, 2017), or the daunting task of beating repeat winners, the number of contestants continued the dwindling trend of recent years, adding up to only 15 items. Despite the return of alcohol to the judges’ tables — magnums of Cook’s California Champagne towering among the bottles — by noon the last morsel had been sampled and Sydney Marrone and Jessie Hobba were doing the math. Winning means bragging rights, of course, but an award can also mean a substantial bump in business for a restaurant, luring customers who want to sample the best. Beyond the winner’s circle, though, there are plenty of good oysters worth chasing down. More on that later. Hog Island Oyster Co. beat four rivals for the title of Best Raw with a sweet corn mignonette, micro cilantro and a drizzle of urfa chili oil. Blue Lake Casino, out of seven total entries, took Best Cooked for its grilled oyster with miso dill butter sauce and rice cracker “caviar.” Pizza Gago, winner of Best Non-oyster
22 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, June 21, 2018 • northcoastjournal.com
for its wagyu beef and chimichurri pizza, nearly took the Best Cooked category with its garlicky pizza topped with lemon and coconut cream sauce, bacon, spinach and oysters. That entry sparked some debate among the judges since the oyster was not the star of that dish — some slices of which had scant chewy bits of the bivalve, if any — but its flavor was evident and the pizza was tangy, rich and honestly delicious. Best in Show shocked no one with frequent winner Sushi Spot claiming the prize for its Goose Point oyster shooter with spicy yuzu citrus pepper sauce, jalapeño, lime and a teeny peeled cherry tomato. Peeled. Back at the tent on the plaza, Sushi Spot’s Eric Stark said that was down to Executive Chef Junko Otani, who prepped the winning shooter. “She’s pretty incredible,” he said, squinting in the sun. This is the restaurant’s eighth win. “It’s been good, yeah,” he said. “We sell a lot of oysters and it’s been good for business.” Clearly. The line at the stall was the longest on the plaza, snaking the better half of the block. As for whether we’ll see the same item on the menu at Sushi Spot’s Arcata or McKinleyville location, Stark offered only a small smile and a “We’ll see.” The cooked entry from the restaurant, a barbecued oyster with uni sauce, was cost prohibitive and not even on offer at the festival stall (a fact that would have disqualified it from winning). While available at the festival, Blue Lake Casino’s winning oyster isn’t on the menu at Alice’s yet but the staff said it may be soon, depending on sales at the festival. By the time the plaza sunburns heal up, Hog Island’s frankly marvelous oyster will be but a memory and if you catch up with Gago’s mobile oven at the McKinleyville Farmers Market, what are the chances it’ll be firing up that oyster pizza? Not to worry. Here are a few favorites
from the festival to try without the long lines and the beer spilled on your shoes: Former winner Folie Douce (1551 G St., Arcata) has been bringing the same oysters to the fest for a couple of years now and, while it didn’t enter the contest this year, its menu features the deconstructed sushi with crispy nori that wowed judges and even scared one contestant out of entering. Over at Campground (865 Ninth St., Arcata), look for the grilled oyster with red chimichurri and crumbles of queso fresco. In contrast to all the acid-heavy shooters and buttery broilings out there, this fat Pacific oyster simmers in its shell with a mild tomato-rich sauce. Tomo (708 Ninth St., Arcata) won Best Raw in 2013 with a spicy ginger and citrus shooter you can still find at dinner. But don’t sleep on the katsu oysters, fried in crunchy panko crust and zig-zagged with tangy katsu sauce. Commit to sharing or guard your plate. Not that the wait will be that much shorter at Sushi Spot (670 Ninth St, Arcata; 1552 City Center Road, McKinleyville) after this win, but if you’re into cooked, order up the Kaminari oysters (meaning “thunder” but sold at the fest as the Incredible Hulk — shouldn’t it be Thor?). Grilled with a dollop of garlic-jalapeño aioli, a scatter of chopped macadamia nuts, cilantro and masago or tobiko, it miraculously doesn’t overwhelm the oyster itself. Ask chef David Hernandez, who couldn’t turn them out fast enough for the throngs on Saturday, even pre-shucked for speed. Incredible, indeed. ● Jennifer Fumiko Cahill is the arts and features editor at the Journal. Reach her at 442-1400, extension 320, or jennifer@ northcoastjournal.com.

Ruzzante Comes Home from the War at Dell’Arte By Pat Bitton
he connection between the title of this year’s Mad River Festival summer show Ruzzante Comes Home from the War and Dell’Arte International may seem a bit of a stretch, but digging under the surface uncovers a timeless tribute to theatre of place. The original version of this play was written in the Commedia dell’Arte style by Ruzzante Beolco in 1529 and tells the story of country soldiers returning home. The Dell’Arte team took this premise to veterans and asked for their humorous coming-home stories and the result is an achingly funny yet poignant tale. In true commedia style, the main players are masked into physical anonymity but their individual characters shine through their words and actions. Ruzzante (a delightfully befuddled, sex-starved and lovelorn Pratik Motwani) and his fellow soldiers, the weird-word-addicted Stupino (played with laconic humor and quiet desperation by Lucius Robinson) and frustrated entrepreneur Brighella (Alyssa Hughlett in a masterful performance as a woman who’s forgotten what it means to be female) find themselves unexpectedly discharged from the army. Their commanding officer, Capitano Rodriego Pantalona (the wonderful James Peck, channeling every caricature of a military officer you can think of), is no help teaching them how to be civilians — after all, he’s never been one. He does, however, have some of the best lines. I particularly like “God created war so Americans could learn geography,” and “Veni, vidi, Vichy — that’s French for I came, I saw, I ran away.” So our heroes find themselves alone, disoriented and in possession of a grand total of $6. They are also free. But what is freedom? They’ve been at war so long, they know no other way of life. There’s a general feeling they should want to go home. But what is home? And where is it? Stupino recommends they coddiwomple (yes, it is a real word meaning to travel in a purposeful manner toward a vague destination — perfect for this situation) until they get there. Lacking other ideas, they head to Ruzzante’s hazily remembered home, a hamlet by the river where he says sunshine
meets sea air, there’s no fighting, no drugs, no homeless people, no “tweakers” — and “no carpetbaggers from New Jersey messing with the local public radio station.” Yes, we are back in Humboldt County. The trio’s first task on arrival, to be appropriately attired, is taken care of by a trio of harmonizing Humboldt honeys (Rebecca Finney, Emilia Björk Perkins and Veenadari Lakshika). Then they’re off to the plaza, expecting a welcoming crowd. But all they find is Ruzzante’s parents (Peck, doing his now-familiar pantomime dame schtick, and the inimitable Donald Forrest in a fetching bathrobe), who don’t even recognize their own son. Once that little problem is resolved, we learn that what’s really driving Ruzzante is a long-ago promise he made to return to his long-ago love Gnua (a sharp-tongued, magnificently vocalized performance from Alexandra Blouin). But much time has passed and Gnua has moved on — primarily to a life of raucous and raunchy fun with local Lothario and would-be dandy Rod (quick-change artist Peck again, sporting a sparkling codpiece in a fetching shade of lilac). She, too, has forgotten Ruzzante but issues him with a challenge to win her back by giving her what she wants. Unfortunately, she neglects to tell him what that is. Dazed and confused, he heads to the Logger Bar to seek advice from his father and grandfather (Michael Fields, reuniting with Forrest for another side-splitting turn from Blue Lake’s longest-running comedy duo). Predictably, nothing helpful comes of this encounter and neither Stupino nor Brighella, despite her chromosomal advantage, can come up with any ideas either. As the trio tries to find a solution to Ruzzante’s impossible challenge, they unpack many of their own challenges — the gaps that remain for all too many veterans between the life of comradeship and order in the army and the messy civilian life that they’re supposed to simply merge back into, as if nothing ever happened. They are home but they don’t know how to be here. Michael Fields directs the challenging subject matter sensitively, balancing humor and pathos, and is ably assisted by Roman Sanchez, who also contributes a deadpan cameo performance as the

deliverer of good news, bad news and hula hoops. Lynnie M Horrigan’s costumes are magnificent, the excellent lighting design is by Michael Foster and Timmy Gray handles musical direction and sound design. The band (Marla Joy, Tim Randles, Mike Labole and Jeff Kelley) create a wonderful atmosphere that follows the story arc and provides the obligatory singalong opportunities for the audience. Ruzzante Comes Home from the War is, like all good commedia, a mashup of joy and despair, humanity and hostility, that will make you laugh. And think. Maybe cry a little. And laugh again. Because, as we all know, laughter is the best medicine.

Life is Short but This Week is Long By Collin Yeo
his is the longest week of the year but there is still plenty of nightlife, despite the absence of our collegiate population. We have noise shows, rock shows, folk and metal galore. I have carpentry and gardening projects to catch up on myself, and I can’t be bothered to waste the sun jabbering away so, without further ado, allow me, dear readers, to unveil your week. Welcome to summer.
Thursday (Summer Solstice)
The city of Eureka continues its free summer concert series on the water at the foot of C street this evening at 6 p.m. Tonight’s artist will be the Mendocino-based rock country act The Johnny Young Band, notable for playing the casino circuit and Cabo Wabo, so if this sounds like your sort of thing, check ’em out!
There’s a fundraiser for the RAVEN project going on tonight at Phatsy Kline’s with the money from every libation quaffed going toward the teen and young adult homeless outreach program. The hypnotic dance ragas of local wunderkind Hudson Glover’s project Comma Comma will punctuate the night at 7:30 p.m. (free). Meanwhile at the Siren’s Song, there’s a fun punk rock show going down at 8 p.m. Los Angeles outfit Maniac is touring on its latest release Dead Dance Club with a little tour to support Vancouver’s post-punk group Material and the freaky stylings of
Mission Viejo’s Nico Bones. Local noise act Henderson Centaur opens ($10). And finally, Los Angeles’ “livetronica” pioneers Particle hit the stage at Humbrews at 9:30 p.m. for what will surely be a groovy show for the jam-tronic faithful ($18/$15 advance).
Portland’s finest Pink Floyd tribute act Pigs on the Wing plays through a two-set residence tonight at the Arcata Theatre Lounge at 8 p.m. ($20/$17 advance). The show is called Finding the Dark Side of the Moon and the show will culminate with a playthrough of that titular album. You know, with all of these cover bands and the interest in its mid-70s discography, maybe I should finally look into this Pink fella. I’ll bet his music is swell. Snarky assholery aside, there’s a good one going down a couple of blocks over at Humbrews, as Wil Gibson and Cristina Menzies join forces with local rising stars Hollow Down to make a blaze in the northern sky ($10). The Rubes provide support, probably with music but maybe, just maybe, with a giant Rube Goldberg machine. Find out for yourself at 9:30 p.m.
It’s another sweet night with a death metal hoedown at the Siren’s Song tonight as a touring circus of fleet-fingered folk fire into town to set your ears aflame. Denver’s Spectral Voice joins Mortiferum from Olympia and Santa Fe’s Superstition
30 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, June 21, 2018 • northcoastjournal.com
TALsounds plays the Outer Space on Wednesday, June 20 at 7 p.m. Photo courtesy of the artist
to grind steel against the dying light. Local rippers Unholy Oriface open. The hour of the power chord is 8 p.m. ($10).
It’s a quiet one tonight and apart from some restaurant and club dance gigs I have already promoted in these pages, I can’t really cosign on a show this evening. However, it is the anniversary of two very different events worthy of celebration. Thirty-four years ago, Prince released what will probably be remembered as the greatest American record of all time: the soundtrack to Purple Rain. And on this day 148 years ago in Montana General George Custer finally got what was coming to him in the Battle of Little Bighorn. This seems like a good time to cheer on the underdogs against overwhelming government oppression while listening to something that makes being an American a source of pride, a scant resource for many of us. So Let’s Go Crazy Horse and all of y’all have a lovely Monday.
There are a couple of free gigs going down in Blue Lake this evening for those of you who like things on the quieter side. Over at the Mad River Brewery tasting room you can find the standards-laced guitar and vocal sounds of Blue Lotus Jazz. Two hours later and a little way to-
ward the 299 at the Logger Bar there is the delightful Old Time Music Jam. Bring your serpent horn, parlor guitar or hurdy gurdy and help brighten up the night. Also at 8 p.m. at The Siren’s Song, you can catch a solo set by mononymous folk artist Ronhaar (price TBA). The Pacific Northwest native will be passing through Eureka tonight on his Summer Solstice Tour of the West Coast so don’t miss out.
The Outer Space hosts an evening of experimental electronic sounds, ambient drones and chaotically curated beat-filled field recordings at 7 p.m. ($5). Join Morher, Kole Galbraith, Matchess and TALsounds as each act entertains you with what will surely sound like the late shift in a light industrial zone to the uninitiated but transcendent heaven for the rest. Join the ranks. Meanwhile at the Miniplex at 9 p.m., Daptone/Wick Records artist Michael Rault gets flashy with his ELO-inspired sassy rock band. Local holy moly rollers Paradise Inc. open ($10). l Collin Yeo has tomato plants and a nail gun and no time to explain. He lives in Arcata. Full show listings in the Journal’s Music and More grid, the Calendar and online. Bands and promoters, send your gig info, preferably with a high-res photo or two, to email@example.com.

At the Fair
The cotton candy, deep-fried, corn dog days of summer are here. And how do we know? Breathe deep, friends. That’s the Best of Humboldt Fair, serving up four days of food and fun June 21-24 at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds ($12 adults, $6 seniors/youth, free admission Thursday, June 21). And the weather’s certainly been fair, hasn’t it? This fair packs a wallop of fun into four days. Stock car racing, tractor pulls, boat races and go-karts rev up excitement in the grandstands (separate pricing), while the carnival’s thrill rides, fun houses, kid rides and games are open from noon to midnight Thursday-Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday (wristbands for unlimited rides $35 at the gate, $25 advance). Kids love Steve the Pretty Good Magician, Jest in Time Circus performers, Stingray Encounter, BMX stunt riders, Nature Joe’s Animal Exhibit and Annie the Clown. Not to mention all the exhibits in the fair halls and buildings, the aforementioned fair food (curly fries, corn dogs, funnel cakes, fry bread …) and live bands. On-site food vendors Frankie’s New York Bagels and Humboldt Cider Co. will be serving up your faves, too. Stop at the Cow Palace to see cow it’s going with the livestock. There you can pet the calves, goats, chickens and more. Piggies, bunnies and lambs are found one building over, with 4-H showings happening in between. The fair is the perfect way to get the summer party started so round up your pals and head to the acres for all-day and all-night fun. More info at www. redwoodacres.com. —Kali Cozyris
Going to the movies matters. Whether it’s gathering with others in darkened movie theaters, in quiet spaces or outdoors under the stars, sharing a communal experience that connects us and can transform our lives for a short while is something we all dig. Whatever you’re looking for from your reel experience, this weekend has a few options worth checking out. The Arcata Library is showing Francis Ford Coppola’s 1983 film The Outsiders on Thursday, June 21 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Arcata Library (free). Whether you’re Team Soc or Team Greaser, this stylized film based on S.E. Hinton’s novel about teen class warfare in 1950s Oklahoma is sure to stoke nostalgia about some aspect of your high school experience. Even if it’s just relating to that dreadful at-home blonde dye job you tried to pull off. Sometimes the collective experience we seek is to groan and laugh with strangers about the absurdity of the thing we’re watching. If that’s what you’re after, carve out some time Friday, June 22 for The Return of Bad Cinema: ‘90s Edition, featuring Troll 2 and Samurai Cop at 7 p.m. at the Eureka Theater ($8 double feature). Why those two together? We don’t know. It doesn’t matter. The bar in the lobby will be open. Take it outside. If you haven’t been to Sequoia Park for the Movies in the Park series, grab a pal and a blanket and join the crowd on the grass Saturday, June 23 for Thor: Ragnarok (2017). DJ Dub Cowboy spins tunes starting at 7 p.m., with the main film starting at dusk, around 8:45 p.m. (free) —Kali Cozyris

Not today, Stephen Miller. The Incredibles 2
Catch a Wave into Surfside Catch a Wave into Surfside!
A super sequel and a super flop By David Jervis
THE INCREDIBLES 2. Sequels, remakes, reboots and “remaginings” of movies happen faster than any good soul can keep up. That’s what makes the arrival of The Incredibles 2 so remarkable: Does it seem like a long time since the original — a wonderfully entertaining film — arrived on the scene, or is it you? This time, for once, it’s not you. It was 14 years ago. Your kid who loved it at the time and demanded to see it again and again may be in med school at this point. There has been a blitz of sequels to everything but not this one. Pixar takes its time. (Although they did, I noticed, make two uninteresting movies with talking cars in the interim.) Heck, Pixar even tacked on a 60-second or so live-action blip that you’ll see after the trailers with the voice talent from the original all but apologizing for how long it took for a new installment. But jeez, it’s OK, folks — we had plenty going on in the meantime. And what made The Incredibles so original, so funny, so fairly well thought-out, remains intact without losing any speed. To refresh: In the original, “supers” Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) and Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) had to take cover, along with their superhero-power-endowed children, as an ordinary family. Before long, they were called out of that cover to fight evil or at least near-evil, as the drill goes. At the start of
The Incredibles 2 we’re in the opposite situation. Superheroes do tend to cause a lot of damage to landmarks, office buildings, public infrastructure and the like, so the pair must return to being Bob and Helen Parr, along with children Violet, Dash and Jack-Jack, until further notice. Director Brad Bird came out of the world of The Simpsons and also helmed the criminally underseen family classic The Iron Giant before knocking out the original Incredibles. There are kicky developments here: The enticement back to superhero-dom comes from a friendly seeming, charming tycoon Winston Deaver (Bob Odenkirk) and anyone who’s seen any movie ever knows that’s a red flag. He’s in the telecommunications industry (bigger red flag), plus he’s in this making-the-world-better scheme with his sister Evelyn. Seriously, has a friendly brother and sister duo ever turned out on the good side in any movie since 1922 or so? Odenkirk is great as the brother — just imagine him as Mark Zuckerberg — and Catherine Keener is even better as, well, if M-Zuck had a much smarter sister. But it’s all jolly fun. Elastigirl is lured into high-profile work as a superhero that reminds her of the good old days, which leads to plenty of dad-related comedy back home, as her husband can’t quite deal with three kids and their mayhem.

SUPERFLY. The sometimes sort of muddled but occasionally pretty amazing early 1970s movie genre that was Blaxploitation hasn’t been fully mined by Hollywood’s remake machine. John Singleton did it years back with Shaft, but the whole genre itself belonged to such a weirdly evolving time in B-movies that it’s hard to think of someone taking another crack at The Mack or Dolomite. However, 1972’s Super Fly was a small classic of the whole period. It had an amazing Curtis Mayfield soundtrack that’s remembered far better than the movie itself. Nevertheless, it’s a great artifact of big-city time and place in the same way that Saturday Night Fever is and it has a cult following. But here, things don’t ever quite come together. There’s the same story, switched from 1970s Harlem to modern Atlanta, about mostly criminal Youngblood Priest (a good performance by Trevor Jackson) coming to terms with his life. He wants out and he wants a single last score to pad what has been an increasingly legit life in Atlanta, one with all kinds of opportunities, including being a

partner in an art gallery with his girlfriend Georgia (Lex Scott Davis, adept in a role not written to be anything interesting). Superfly never goes anywhere new and wastes its time — along with a few good actors, like Michael Kenneth Williams (The Wire) — getting where it’s trying to go. There’s lots of flash and hints of sleaze and menace, but it ultimately leans on those to end up effectively nowhere. R. 107M. BROADWAY, MILL CREEK.

Legal Notices HUMBOLDT COUNTY RESOURCE CONSERVATION DISTRICT INVITES BIDS FOR WHITE SLOUGH WETLAND ENHANCEMENT PROJECT–2018 SOIL TRANSPORT SERVICES.
The work shall include furnishing a minimum of five (5) and up to six (6) 10-wheel dump trucks with drivers to support soil transport at the White Slough Wetland Enhancement Project on the Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge’s White Slough Unit for 8 hours/day, Monday-Friday, from July 9, 2018 through August 17, 2018. The work generally includes transporting soil on County/State Highway routes from a designated loading site to a designated unloading site both located on the Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge. The soil will be loaded at the designated loading site by Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge staff, hauled and dumped by the awarded contractor at the unload site where it will be spread by Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge staff. The Humboldt County Resource Conservation District intends to enter into a single contract to complete the work. This is a federally-assisted project and Davis-Bacon (DBRA) requirements will be strictly enforced. Federal Labor Standards will apply. Contractors, including all subcontractors and apprentices, must be eligible to participate. Bids will be received by FedEx or hand delivered at the office of Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge Visitors Center, 1020 Ranch Road, Loleta, CA, 95551 until 3:00 PM, Pacific Daylight Time on Monday, July 2, 2018. The USPS does not deliver to the physical address. The Contract Documents are available online at the Humboldt County Resource Conservation District (Contract Manager) website: http://humboldtrcd.org/ and the Humboldt Builders Exchange website: http://humbx.com/. Each proposal must be submitted on the prescribed form and accompanied by a certified check or Bid Bond in an amount of not less than 10 percent of the amount bid. Successful bidders will be required to furnish both a Payment Bond and Performance Bond in the full amount of the Contract Price. In accordance with Public Contract Code Section 10263 and with concurrence of the project funding agencies, the Contractor may be allowed to substitute securities for monies normally withheld by the Contract Manager to insure performance under this contract. This is a Public Works Project funded with CA State and Federal Funds. Therefore CA State and Federal prevailing wage rates will be required on this project. In accordance with the provisions of section 1720 et seq. of the Labor Code, the Division of Labor Standards and Research has determined the general prevailing rates or wages and employer payments for health and welfare, pension, vacation, travel time, and subsistence pay as provided for in section 1773.8. These wages are set forth in the General Prevailing Wage Rates for this project, and are available from the California Department of Industrial Relations’ Internet web site at http://www.dir.ca.gov/DLSR/PWD. It shall be mandatory upon the Contractor herein and upon any Subcontractor to pay not less than the said specified rates to all laborers, workers and mechanics employed by them in the execution of the Agreement pursuant to CA Labor Code 1774. Attention is directed to the provisions in section 1777.5 and sections 1777.6 of the Labor Code concerning the requirement to employ apprentices by the Contractor or any Subcontractor under it. The Contractor shall comply with and shall cause his Subcontractors to comply with all laws and regulations governing the Contractor’s and Subcontractor’s performance on this project including, but not limited to: anti-discrimination laws, workers’ compensation laws, and prevailing wage laws as set forth in CA Labor Code, Sections 1720-1861 et seq. and licensing laws, as well as Federal Labor Standards set forth in the Davis-Bacon Act (40 USC 276(a-a5), the Copeland “Anti-Kickback” Act (40 USC 276©; and the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act (CWHSSA) (40 USC 327-333). The Contractor is required to include the prevailing wage language in all subcontracts pursuant to CA Labor Code 1775(E)(b)(1). The Contractor shall post, at appropriate conspicuous points on the site of the Project, a schedule showing all the determined general prevailing wage rates. The Contractor agrees to comply with Labor Code Section 1775 (Payment of the Prevailing Wage Rates) and Labor Code 1776 (keeping accurate records) and Labor Code 1777.5, placing responsibility for compliance with the statutory requirements for all apprenticeable occupations on the prime Contractor. The Contractor shall comply with the requirements imposed by the California Labor Code Sections 1720 through 1861 regarding public works projects and prevailing wage laws and sections 16000-16800 of the CA Code of Regulations. Each worker needed to execute the work must be paid travel and subsistence payments as defined in the applicable collective bargaining agreements filed in accordance with Labor Code Section 1773.8. Holiday and overtime work when permitted by law shall be paid for at a rate of at least one and one-half times the above specified rate of per diem wages, unless otherwise specified. Contractor and any Subcontractors shall be assessed penalties for violating the following labor codes; CA Labor Code 1813 for overtime, 1775 for underpayment of the prevailing wage, and 1776 for inaccurate or incomplete payroll records. The Contractor shall be responsible for submitting certified payroll records in accordance with Labor Code 1776 and submit copies to Contract Manager’s Labor Compliance Officer. No Contractor or Subcontractor may be listed on a bid proposal for a public works project unless registered with the Department of Industrial Relations pursuant to Labor Code section 1725.5 [with limited exceptions from this requirement for bid purposes only under Labor Code section 1771.1(a)]. No Contractor or Subcontractor may be awarded a contract for public work on a public works project unless registered with the Department of Industrial Relations pursuant to Labor Code section 1725.5. This project is subject to compliance monitoring and enforcement by the Department of Industrial Relations. Copies of the Prevailing Wage Determinations are available online at http://www.dir.ca.gov/DLSR. Copies of the Davis Bacon Act Wage Decisions are available online at https://www.wdol.gov/dba.aspx If there is a difference between the minimum wage rates predetermined by the Secretary of Labor and the general prevailing wage rates determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations for similar classifications of labor, the Contractor and subcontractors shall pay not less than the higher wage rate. The Department will not accept lower State wage rates not specifically included in the Federal minimum wage determinations. This includes “helper” (or other classifications based on hours of experience) or any other classification not appearing in the Federal wage determinations. Where Federal wage determinations do not contain the State wage rate determination otherwise available for use by the Contractor and subcontractors, the Contractor and subcontractor shall pay not less than the Federal minimum wage rate, which most closely approximates the duties of the employees in question. Trucking for the White Slough Wetlands Enhancement Project is classified by the Department of Industrial Relations as Determination: C-DT-830-261-7-2009-1 On/Off Hauling To/From Construction Site. Employers are responsible for paying the straight time prevailing wage rate and to make training fee contributions. Owner/Operator Trucks are exempt from prevailing wage requirements. Certification Form CEM 2510 is required to be submitted to awarding agency, prime contract, and trucking broker. http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/construc/forms/cem2510.pdf (CalTrans Contract Number N/A) Trucks may be subject to documentation requirements including but not limited to; copies of Motor Carrier Permit, Current Registration, Drug Program enrollment, insurance, and air quality compliance. Prime Contractor and Truck Operators are responsible to comply with all local road and State Highway laws including but not limited to State Truck Tarping Laws and Vehicle Weight Limitations. Questions regarding the contract documents shall be submitted via email by 5PM Thursday June 28, 2018 to Jill Demers, Humboldt County RCD., telephone (707) 832-5594, email@example.com.

Oregon Butterflies and Wasps By Anthony Westkamper email@example.com
ne good thing about insects as a hobby is there are so many of them and they’re everywhere. The high desert environment of central Oregon is so different from our coastal rainforest that it gives opportunities to encounter entirely unfamiliar species. So, I took my cameras on a trip last week. It was easy to add a few critters to my life list. I spent a lot of time chasing what I thought was an agile and nervous brilliant indigo bee. It turned out to be Parnopes edwardsii, a cuckoo wasp that lays its eggs in the nests of other wasps. When they hatch, they eat either the host wasp larva, the larder its mother provided or both. At the Mount Mazama overlook on State Route 138, a tiny dark butterfly taunted me, flitting from one strawberry blossom to another until I finally got a shot. It turned out to be a western pine elfin (Callophrys eryphon), something I’m never likely to see in my part of Humboldt County. Outside of Culver, Oregon, some juniper hairstreak butterflies (Callophrys gryneus) were so intent nectaring on a drab spike of phacelia flowers they paid me almost no heed at all, allowing me to get several nice shots. Researching this butterfly I learned the western juniper (Juniperus occidentalis) on which their caterpillars likely feed are considered an invasive species in central Oregon. The presence of that little butterfly indicates a changing local ecology.
Back to the river As the weather begrudgingly warms up, more bugs are emerging. Lately along the Van Duzen River, I’ve noted pale swallowtail (Papilio eurymedon) and Lorquin’s admiral (Limenitis lorquini) butterflies among others. You can find quite a few stonefly (order Plecoptera) exuvia, or cast off husks, near the water’s edge as naiads shed their last larval shell and emerge as flying adults. The most remarkable insect I’ve seen

lately was a male elm sawfly (Cimbex americana). Following a dragonfly into the bushes, I saw what I thought was a giant hornet in the weeds. Dark wings buzzing a deep bass note, it fumbled trying to claw its way up a stalk. I watched as it failed repeatedly and I noted its antennae ended in little clubs. That one feature told me it wasn’t a stinging wasp at all but a member of the family Cimbicidae of sawflies. I seldom collect insects but this one seemed seriously impaired and remarkable, so I caught it, took it home, killed and mounted it. It was so large I had to improvise a balsa spreading board to accommodate the thickness and width of its body. Members of the order Hymenoptera, along with ants, bees and wasps, this group eats plants and is totally stingless. As larvae, sawflies can be serious garden and forest pests. Looking much like moth caterpillars, they are responsible for damage to many crop and ornamental trees and shrubs, including rhododendrons, fruit trees, camellias and roses. Many species feed at night and hide in the leaf litter beneath their chosen hosts during the day, the only clue to their presence is the damage they’ve done to the leaves of the plant above. ● Read more of Anthony Westkamper’s entomological adventures on Sundays at www.northcoastjournal.com.

Homework: Make a guess about where you’ll be and what you’ll be doing ten years from today. Testify at Freewillastrology.com.
firstname.lastname@example.org ARIES (March 21-April 19): According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you have cosmic permission to enjoy extra helpings of waffles, crepes, pancakes, and blintzes. Eating additional pastries and doughnuts is also encouraged. Why? Because it’s high time for you to acquire more ballast. You need more gravitas and greater stability. You can’t afford to be top-heavy; you must be hard to knock over. If you would prefer not to accomplish this noble goal by adding girth to your butt and gut, find an alternate way. Maybe you could put weights on your shoes and think very deep thoughts. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’re slipping into the wild heart of the season of discovery. Your curiosity is mounting. Your listening skills are growing more robust. Your willingness to be taught and influenced and transformed is at a peak. And what smarter way to take advantage of this fertile moment than to decide what you most want to learn about during the next three years? For inspiration, identify a subject you’d love to study, a skill you’d eagerly stretch yourself to master, and an invigorating truth that would boost your brilliance if you thoroughly embodied it. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Playwright and novelist Samuel Beckett won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969. Four of his works were essential in earning that award: the play Waiting for Godot, and the novels Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable. Beckett wrote all of them in a two-year span during the late 1940s. During that time, he was virtually indigent. He and his companion Suzanne survived on the paltry wage she made as a dressmaker. We might draw the conclusion from his life story that it is at least possible for a person to accomplish great things despite having little money. I propose that we make Beckett your role model for the coming weeks, Gemini. May he inspire you to believe in your power to become the person you want to be no matter what your financial situation may be. CANCER (June 21-July 22): I suggest you ignore the temptation to shop around for new heroes and champions. It would only distract you from your main assignment in the coming weeks, which is to be more of a hero and champion yourself. Here are some tips to guide you as you slip beyond your overly modest self-image and explore the liberations that may be possible when you give yourself more credit. Tip #1: Finish outgrowing the old heroes and champions who’ve served you well. Tip #2: Forgive and forget the disappointing heroes and hypocritical champions who betrayed their own ideals. Tip #3: Exorcise your unwarranted admiration for mere celebrities who might have snookered you into thinking they’re heroes or champions. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “A waterfall would be more impressive if it flowed the other way,” said Irish writer Oscar Wilde. Normally, I would dismiss an idea like this, even though it’s funny and I like funny ideas. Normally, I would regard such a negative assessment of the waterfall’s true nature, even in jest, to be unproductive and enfeebling. But none of my usual perspectives are in effect as I evaluate the possibility that Wilde’s declaration might be a provocative metaphor for your use in the coming weeks. For a limited time only, it might be wise to meditate on a waterfall that flows the other way. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Stage magicians may seem to make a wine glass hover in mid-air, or transform salt into diamonds, or make doves materialize and fly out of their hands. It’s all fake, of course — tricks performed by skilled illusionists. But here’s a twist on the old story: I suspect that for a few weeks, you will have the power to generate effects that may, to the uninitiated, have a resemblance to magic tricks — except that your magic will be real, not fake. And you will have worked very hard to accomplish what looks easy and natural.
And the marvels you generate will, unlike the illusionists’, be authentic and useful. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The coming weeks will be a favorable time to accentuate and brandish the qualities that best exemplify your Libran nature. In other words, be extreme in your moderation. Be pushy in your attempts to harmonize. Be bold and brazen as you make supple use of your famous balancing act. I’ll offer you a further piece of advice, as well. My first astrology teacher believed that when Librans operate at peak strength, their symbol of power is the iron fist in the velvet glove: power expressed gracefully, firmness rendered gently. I urge you to explore the nuances of that metaphor. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): If I were your mom, I’d nudge you out the door and say, “Go play outside for a while!” If I were your commanding officer, I’d award you a shiny medal for your valorous undercover work and then order you to take a frisky sabbatical. If I were your psychotherapist, I would urge you to act as if your past has no further power to weigh you down or hold you back, and then I would send you out on a vision quest to discover your best possible future. In other words, my dear Scorpio, I hope you will flee your usual haunts. Get out of the loop and into the open spaces that will refresh your eyes and heart. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sex education classes at some high schools employ a dramatic exercise to illustrate the possible consequences of engaging in heterosexual lovemaking without using birth control. Everywhere they go for two weeks, students must carry around a 10-pound bag of flour. It’s a way for them to get a visceral approximation of caring for an infant. I recommend that you find or create an equivalent test or trial for yourself in the coming days. As you consider entering into a deeper collaboration or making a stronger commitment, you’ll be wise to undertake a dress rehearsal. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Members of the Dull Men’s Club celebrate the ordinary. “Glitz and glam aren’t worth the bother,” they declare. “Slow motion gets you there faster,” they pontificate. Showing no irony, they brag that they are “born to be mild.” I wouldn’t normally recommend becoming part of a movement like theirs, but the next two weeks will be one of those rare times when aligning yourself with their principles might be healthy and smart. If you’re willing to explore the virtues of simple, plain living, make the Swedish term lagom your word of power. According to the Dull Men’s Club, it means “enough, sufficient, adequate, balanced, suitable, appropriate.” AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In the Georgian language, shemomechama is a word that literally means “I ate the whole thing.” It refers to what happens when you’re already full, but find the food in front of you so delicious that you can’t stop eating. I’m concerned you might soon be tempted to embark on metaphorical versions of shemomechama. That’s why I’m giving you a warning to monitor any tendencies you might have to get too much of a good thing. Pleasurable and productive activities will serve you better if you stop yourself before you go too far. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Please do not send me a lock of your hair or a special piece of your jewelry or a hundred dollar bill. I will gladly cast a love spell in your behalf without draining you of your hard-earned cash. The only condition I place on my free gift is that you agree to have me cast the love spell on you and you alone. After all, your love for yourself is what needs most work. And your love for yourself is the primary magic that fuels your success in connecting with other people. (Besides, it’s bad karma to use a love spell to interfere with another person’s will.) So if you accept my conditions, Pisces, demonstrate that you’re ready to receive my telepathic love spell by sending me your telepathic authorization. l
