‘Gifted and Devoted’ Editor: I am writing to thank Linda Stansberry and North Coast Journal for their brilliant cover story about Humboldt Wildlife Care Center (“Oh, Mercy,” July 20). I have been a fan of HWCC since shortly after I moved to Eureka in 1989 and I think the article captures its “spirit” and “intention” very well. I was privileged to volunteer during the pelican crisis on the North Coast in 2012, and that was when I met Monte Merrick, founder of Bird Ally X, for the first time and saw him in action, along with his colleagues and volunteers. I cannot imagine a more gifted and devoted wildlife rehabilitator and organization. HWCC and Bird Ally X came together in 2014 and as “Oh, Mercy” points out, they have grown to where they are treating more than 1,000 of our local wild animal and migratory populations a year. They are “on call” 24/7 and open seven days a week. If you have ever called them upon finding an animal in distress, then you know it is an experience you will never forget. I would invite all who don’t know HWCC, to educate yourselves by going to its website (www.birdallyx.net/humboldt-wildlife-care-center-2) because you never know when you, your family or friends might be in need of its services. And because HWCC is “operating on a shoestring,” I would invite all readers to support this organization through donations and/or volunteering. It is both a gift and blessing for us and our wildlife that HWCC/Bird Ally X is here on the North Coast. Harry Blumenthal, Eureka
‘A Tissue of Illusions’ Editor: A footnote to Douglas George’s letter to the editor (Mailbox, Aug. 3) about the fiction of free will and how the mechanics
of cognition prove it is an illusion. Isaiah Berlin, the late Russian-British polymath and philosopher of intellectual history, wrote in his famous essay about Tolstoy that freedom is real but it is confined to trivial acts, like nodding one’s head or choosing a brand of toothpaste. Other than these petty undertakings, man is the animal who deceives himself. As Mr. George noted, echoing Gautama Buddha, man lives in, for and by illusion. His consciousness is a tissue of illusions. All of us are part of an inexorable stream, a protean existence at the center of which lie terror and mystery; thus our metaphysical anxieties about the limitlessness of time and space. These unbearable anxieties are relieved
by illusions completely beyond our conscious control and therefore beyond volition. The illusion of free will, like the illusions of romance, natural rights, the resurrection of the body, patriotism and God are the ineluctable results of human megalomania, our soaring hubris and mountainous vanity. Yes, the superstition of free will, like the superstition of God, is a necessity in the interests of law, the courts and social cohesion until at last humankind grows up and frees itself from superstition (not likely). In the meantime, as George Eliot (Mary Anne Evans) wrote in Middlemarch, “Chance has an empire which reduces choice to a fool’s illusion.”
Even if free will existed, it would be wiped out by chance, accident, chaos and entropy. All men are fools. Socrates is a man. Socrates is a fool. He had the virtue of knowing he was. Paul Mann, McKinleyville

PenAir No More
Airline abruptly drops Humboldt service, declares bankruptcy By Thadeus Greenson email@example.com
bout 18 months after arriving in Humboldt County amid much fanfare, PenAir sent out a press release shortly before 7 p.m. on Aug. 7 announcing it was shuttering its route from Arcata/Eureka to Portland. Some 72 hours later, its last plane had departed the airport in McKinleyville and the airline had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, looking to end its flights into and out of Crescent City. “The steps we are taking today will allow PenAir to emerge as a stronger airline, while continuing to focus on safe operations,” PenAir CEO and Chair Danny Sybert says in a press release. The move leaves United, once again, as the last airline standing in Humboldt County, limiting the routes and schedules available to customers, and potentially driving up costs. It will, however, have little impact on the local workforce, as PenAir spokesperson Missy Roberts says the company only has one local employee — a longtime PenAir staffer who will have the option of relocating with the company — and contracts others through SkyWest, which has indicated it doesn’t expect any staffing changes stemming from PenAir’s decision. The stakes are substantially higher up in Crescent City, where PenAir is the only
airline service, offering a pair of daily roundtrip flights to Portland. But the small Del Norte County airport also has more protections, as it has the federal distinction of being an “Essential Air Service” airport. That means PenAir can’t pull up shop until it gets federal approval and another airline has agreed to service the airport, a process which typically takes at least 90 days. Del Norte County Airport Director Matthew Leitner says he expects the Department of Transportation will soon issue a request for proposals to all air carriers in the nation, seeking bids to take over Del Norte’s air service. The airport’s EAS status means its airlines get federal subsidies to service the market, which makes it a sought after contract for most airlines. The subsidies come from foreign overflight fees, or tariffs placed on foreign flights that pass over U.S. airspace — like, say, a flight from Havana to Toronto. The whole idea, according to Leitner, is to ensure that markets that need airport service due to their geographic isolation get it at an affordable cost. Unfortunately for Humboldt County, we don’t have that designation and there’s no guarantee — and possibly only limited optimism — that an airline will step in and take PenAir’s place. The good news is that Humboldt still has a pot of cash aimed at
luring another carrier. The shuttering of the route represents a relatively stunning turn of events for PenAir, which opened it without demanding a minimum revenue guarantee — the promised revenues that airports in small areas generally offer to airlines in case the companies are unable to fill seats as projected. While that move may represent a bit of irrational confidence on the part of the airline — a local official estimated it costs at least $8 million to start a new route in a new market — it also means Humboldt County still has some money to try to leverage into a replacement option. The group Fly Humboldt has raised more than $1 million in funds to offer minimum revenue guarantees, launch marketing efforts and make improvements intended to recruit new air service options locally. Because that money wasn’t spent on PenAir, it’s still available. Emily Jacobs, program coordinator for the county’s aviation division, says efforts to recruit another airline to Humboldt never stopped and remain ongoing. “We’re always interested in more flights to more destinations,” she says. “We’ve already been in contact and talking with airlines, and will be meeting with some in October.” But for the time being, those going
commercially airborne out of Humboldt will do so on United flights to San Francisco. And that has a bit of a potentially reverberating impact, from the airport’s grounds crew to Ramone’s, which recently opened a café there. Jacobs says United is adding another afternoon flight to San Francisco — sporadically this month and then daily in September — which will fortunately help offset the loss of PenAir. For those holding a PenAir ticket out of Arcata/Eureka, they’ll have to make other arrangements — either getting the purchase refunded or trying to channel their itinerary through Crescent City and making the hour-plus drive north. (Ticket holders can call (800) 448-4226 to explore their options.) PenAir, meanwhile, will continue operations in eight destinations in the Alaska and Boston areas, presumably because they remain profitable, as it enters bankruptcy proceedings and looks to reorganize as a company. Founded in 1955, PenAir is one of the largest family-owned airlines in the United States, with 700 employees nationwide. l Thadeus Greenson is the Journal’s news editor.

Don’t Live in a Murder House Returning Indian Island is good for all of us By Cutcha Risling Baldy email@example.com
In March of 2014, a vigil crowd gathered on Woodley Island to mourn and remember the Wiyot people massacred on Indian Island in February 1860. File
ast week on Facebook I came across a post from the Wiyot Tribe in which it tagged my friend Rachel Sundberg. The tribe was thanking her for helping members learn about cultural protocols, dance regalia and continuing ceremonial practices. The Wiyot children in the photos were happy and in one photo a young girl was wearing a dress that I recognized, a dress that was worn by Wiyot tribal member Michelle Hernandez in 2014 when the Wiyot did their first women’s coming-of-age ceremony in more than 100 years. I must start here. Because most people would start on Feb. 26, 1864, when Humboldt County citizens massacred more than 150 Wiyot people who had just finished their World Renewal Ceremony. Humboldt County citizens came with hatchets and knives. They murdered mostly Indian women and children. That was the last time the Wiyot performed a World Renewal Ceremony on Tuluwat (what became known as “Indian Island”). I don’t want to start there. Because the Wiyot are so much more than the massacring of their people. They have not only survived, they have thrived and they continue to restore and revitalize. In 2014 they brought back their women’s coming-of-age ceremony and then they revitalized their World Renewal Ceremony on Tuluwat. The city of Eureka has been working with the Wiyot for the return of Indian Island for a few years. The Wiyot Tribe purchased some of the island in 2000, which included an ancestral village. In 2006, the Eureka City Council voted to return another large part of the island to the Wiyot people. Then last week, Rob Arkley went on the KINS’s Radio TalkShop and aired his opinions on the return of Tuluwat, stating, “Well, I use Indian Island. I like it. My kids do. I see people there all the time when I’m
over there. I don’t get how they can take one of our assets and give it. So I’m going to be offering over the appraised value for the property and if I get it, giving it away as surplus property …” A day later he (and his wife) issued a follow-up statement, including things like: “Now we have offered to purchase Indian Island, but we do not want to own it. We would rather preserve it for the entire community.” And, “It is not our wish to deny the Wiyot Tribe access to sacred ceremonial grounds, or to their heritage, but to preserve the rights to the island for all citizens. It is a property with great historical significance and it belongs to all of us.” Look, we can go over the history of genocide in Humboldt County, the “deranged frontier” (as Jack Norton called it), the indiscriminate murder of Native people that founded this place, details like “Indian hunting days” and killing babies by stomping on their heads or cutting out their hearts. We can talk about how Native peoples were called “savage,” while murderers were called “settlers.” We can go over the statistics like the $1 million paid for the hunting and killing of Indians in the state of California and how everyday people traded in the scalps and heads of Indian people for money. We can talk about the day that I was in the archive and came across a picture of Humboldt County “legend” Seth Kinman, who is described as a “hunter and early settler of the Humboldt County region,” when, in fact, he was murdering psychopath who liked to pose for photos with Indian scalps. We could look at the Indian slave records in Humboldt County and talk about Native people who were sold into slavery in Old Town Eureka and how records show most of them were children. We can call into question why the names of roads in our towns are the names

of men who “settled” this place when settlement was not benign — it was depraved. We can reiterate that there are some families who benefited and continue to benefit from this violent history more than others; that Humboldt County’s wealthy landowners did not get their land legally — they stole it, taking over large areas where Native peoples were forced out, often through massacres or enslavement. We have no public memorials to the Native people who fought, bled, died and survived. In school, while children learn about a benign mission system, a prosperous gold rush and a “fair” rancho system, Native children grow up hearing about what their ancestors did to survive, because we want them to know: You are from a strong, enduring people. This water runs through you, this land has built you, and you will heal the community to heal the land, heal the land to heal the community. That’s right, I said “community.” When Native people are talking about healing and preservation, they aren’t just talking about building a better future for Indians, they are talking about building a better future for the earth. You live here, right? Earth? We need to find tangible ways to address the issues that we all still carry with us from this depraved history. How do we do that in a way that matters? How do we benefit for generations? It’s pretty simple: Return the land. Let the Wiyot decide how to move forward. You know why. Because it’s not “giving Indian Island away,” it’s returning it to the rightful owners. Let’s say that you have this beautiful house that your family has been in for generations. And one day your dad sits you down and says, “You are about to inherit our family house. FYI, for us to gain ownership of the house, we came in the middle of the night and murdered everyone who
lived here. And then it was ours. Also the extended family and descendants live just down the way. They sometimes come and hold vigils outside the house.” What do you do? Live in the murder house? It’s not yours. At some point, a really wealthy dude turns up (maybe his name rhymes with Cob Carkley) and he says, “I understand that you are thinking about giving your house back to the family of the people your ancestors murdered. How about I offer you double the price and you don’t give it back because I also want to use your house and my kids like it.” Seems legit. When I’ve offered versions of this example in class students have very clear reactions. (1) Don’t steal other people’s stuff. It’s wrong; (2) if you inherit or benefit from someone who stole other people’s stuff, you should do what you can to rectify that situation; (3) the easiest way to rectify that situation is to give the darn things back. It’s that simple. I’m trying to break it down into the simplest form but the truth is Tuluwat is much more than “stolen stuff.” Tuluwat is not being returned because the Wiyot “want” it, it is being returned because that is the right thing to do. For everyone. For the entire community. We are a part of the community, too, us Natives. Have been since the beginning of time. Will be. Always. The water runs through our veins. The land builds us. We pray for the health and well-being of all things, we sing, we dance, we heal the community to heal the land, we heal the land to heal the community. All of the community. Everything. Together. l Cutcha Risling Baldy is an assistant professor in Humboldt State University’s Native American Studies Department.

DOJ to Head Public Administrator Probe
n investigator from the California Department of Justice is expected to arrive in Eureka this week to take over an investigation into possible wrongdoing involving the management of estates overseen by the county’s Public Administrator’s Office. District Attorney Maggie Fleming says she was notified by phone Aug. 3 of the state’s decision to run the probe, which is looking into whether current and former county employees violated state law by purchasing cars and other items from the estates. “Other than answering any questions they may have, we will have no role in the investigation,” Fleming writes in an email to the Journal. “We will also have no involvement in charging decisions or any prosecution.” At the center of the investigation is a California Government Code section that makes it a misdemeanor for a public administrator and “any deputy or agent of such officer” to purchase estate items directly or indirectly, or to otherwise benefit from such a transaction. A representative in the DOJ’s press office declined to respond to any questions about the office’s role, saying that was necessary to protect the integrity of the case. The Public Administrator’s Office, which came under the Humboldt Sheriff’s Office oversight in 2015 with the merger of the coroner’s office, manages the assets of people who die without a will or someone to oversee their holdings. Their property — ranging from cars and houses to dishes and
fishing poles — is sold off by the office, with the proceeds going to any heirs. If there are none, the money is sent to the state. Suspected improprieties involving those sales — which appear to date back years — surfaced publicly in late June, when Sheriff William Honsal announced that he and Fleming were launching a joint inquiry after his office received a complaint and media inquiry about the practice. Honsal says six current employees of either the sheriff’s office, the coroner’s office or the public administrator’s office were involved in purchases and those who still had the items returned them. “I requested that they do that and they all complied and they all saw the need to do it immediately,” he says. Fleming and Honsal reached out to the FBI, which declined to have any involvement, and the DOJ individually after Fleming says “it became clear the investigation would cover multiple individuals and extend back at least several years.” “The potential for some members of the public to perceive a potential conflict of interest seemed significant,” Fleming says in an email to the Journal. Honsal agrees, saying he and Fleming felt it was important for “someone totally outside of the organization and the county to independently take a look at the case.” Meanwhile, he says, new policies and procedures — which now include a blanket ban on employees of his office, their family members or close friends making purchases — are being drawn up.

Security Guard Shoots, Kills One: The Eureka Police Department is continuing its investigation into the fatal Aug. 1 shooting of 56-year-old Herbert Macias.

By Linda Stansberry n Aug. 2, 1937, the Marijuana Tax Act passed. Although later laws would codify punishment for cannabis smokers, sellers and cultivators, House Resolution 6385, drafted by Harry Anslinger, the first commissioner of the U.S. Treasury Department’s Federal Bureau of Narcotics, is regarded as the first time the federal government laid its heavy hand on the plant. The circumstances around its passage have resonance with modern events. The American Medical Association raised concerns about the bill, for example, because it had been “prepared in secret.” The association also said “marijuana” was a misleading and unknown term for what physicians then prescribed as “cannabis,” meaning that many doctors and pharmacists didn’t understand what they were losing. H.R. 6385 would nevertheless pass and go into effect on Oct. 1, 1937, initiating 80 years of bureaucratic cloddishness and reverberating consequences. Anslinger, a former railroad bull who rose to prominence during the era of alcohol prohibition, could not have foreseen how his signature legislation would impact many of the 20th century’s most important social and legal changes. It would be less than 30 years later, for example, that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 would pass, thanks to the persistent efforts of grassroots organizers and protestors. Other important civil rights cases, such as Brown vs. the Board of Education of Topeka (1954) and Loving vs. Virginia (1967) would course correct the moral trajectory of the United States, bending its long arc toward justice. But, with marijuana prohibition, federal and state governments would retain an important tool in perpetuating institutional racism. In 2013, the American Civil Liberties Union analyzed data compiled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and National Household Survey on Drug Abuse and Health. They found that “despite roughly equal usage rates, Blacks are 3.73 times more likely than whites to be arrested for marijuana.” And out of the 8.2 million marijuana arrests made between 2001 and 2010, 88 percent were for simple possession. Even now, as legalization is seeing a slow, state-by-state creep across the country, many would-be marijuana

entrepreneurs are shut out of working in the industry by former convictions. Oakland’s city council recently approved the Equity Permit Program, allowing Oakland residents jailed for marijuana possession in the last 10 years to receive medical cannabis industry permits. Councilmember Delsey Brooks referred to the permit program as “economic reparations.” Anslinger died in 1975, eight years after having resigned under President John F. Kennedy. In the decade before his death, the federal government passed several sweeping environmental reform acts, including the National Environmental Policy Act, the 1970 Clean Air Act and the 1972 Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act. Almost every major industry would come under increased scrutiny for its environmental impacts. But prohibition would be the very thing to push large scale cannabis agriculture into mountains, hillsides and federal parkland, where – at least in our region – the industry would boom largely unregulated and under-prosecuted for decades, often having a deleterious effect on our watersheds and wildlife. And finally: Willie Nelson. The country music star turned 84 this year, and his most recent album, God’s Problem Child, went to No. 1 on the country charts. Over his 61-year career, the oft-stoned octogenarian has shaped his outlaw image around marijuana’s prohibition, having been arrested for possession several times, first in 1974. More recently, Nelson became co-chair for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws and frequently advocates for federal legalization. It’s unlikely Nelson ever made it into Anslinger’s infamous file “Marijuana and Musicians,” which the commissioner hoped to use to organize a dragnet on jazz musicians, but the life and career of Nelson has been indelibly shaped by Anslinger’s obsession and legacy. (Nelson, it should be noted, was also a notorious tax evader.) May the Red Headed Stranger outlive prohibition, if he doesn’t outlive us all. l Linda Stansberry is a staff writer at the Journal.

itting in a coffee shop on Harrison Street and sipping a latte shortly before 8 a.m., embattled Humboldt County Public Defender David Marcus pauses to consider a question. Throughout his 20 years of experience as a deputy public defender in San Bernardino County and as chief of Lassen County’s office, Marcus has faced waves of criticism and resistance from co-workers and colleagues. In the words of one former Lassen County supervisor, those around Marcus have a tendency to reach for their “long knives.” So just what is it about the 64-year-old attorney that draws this reaction? “Because I’ve always been controversial and aggressive,” Marcus says. “I mean, my nickname is ‘Taz,’ so I probably earned that.” Taz? As in the Tasmanian Devil? “Yeah, one of the bailiffs nicknamed me ‘The Taz’ and it kind of stuck.”
But how would that rub your coworkers in a zealous public defender’s office the wrong way? “You know, I’m not sure,” Marcus says, his voice trailing off as he glances down at his latte. “I have my own ideas about that. I think some people don’t work as hard as they should for their clients and I was vocal about that. Still am. Not everyone’s going to like you.” Thing is, that is the exact allegation that has been lobbed at Marcus, repeatedly, from his early days as a deputy public defender in San Bernardino County — a 13-year position he left with no notice, resigning via Post-it note — to Lassen County, where he left shortly after a scathing grand jury report accused him of only spending 30 to 40 percent of his days at work. And it is an allegation that followed him to Humboldt County, where his staff has accused him of being incompetent and indifferent, and has dubbed

him with a far more disparaging nickname: Nibs, defined as “a mock title used to refer to a self-important man.” As a lawsuit continues to work its way through the courts, challenging whether Marcus meets minimum state qualifications for the job he landed in February, much of the focus has been on his recent work history and whether he’s fulfilled the statutory requirement of having been “a practicing attorney in all the courts of the state for at least the year preceding the date of his election or appointment.” (He says he spent the five years after leaving Lassen County doing remote contract work on civil cases for the firm Cella, Lange and Cella, but has been unable to provide any documents, court filings, time cards or correspondence showing he did any such work in the year prior to his hire.) The board of supervisors, meanwhile, has been largely silent on Marcus’ hire, with members saying they’re bound by the
when she answers the phone at her southern California home. She’s a children’s author and teaches writing at a handful of colleges and universities down south but, almost two decades ago, she was the administrative assistant in the Redland’s branch of the San Bernardino County Public Defender’s Office, where Marcus worked as the supervising attorney from 1999 to 2001. “He’s a unique individual. He’s very charming, very pleasant,” Morrison says. “He certainly never made any waves with me.” But as the conversation goes on, it’s clear Morrison feels conflicted. On the one hand, she says Marcus was good to her. He let her work a nontraditional 7-4 schedule so she could go back to school, which ultimately paved the way for her second career. But his management of the office caused problems, most notably his penchant for ending his workday at lunchtime and pushing his caseload onto other attorneys in the office, she says. “That got pretty explosive. Yelling — there was, at one point, a lot of yelling,” she says, laughing quietly at the memory and adding that much of the fireworks came between Marcus and a young deputy public defender fresh out of law school named Dennis Wilkins. “Honestly, I think Dennis was just tired of Dave giving him all of the work — all of the work. Dennis did the brunt of the work there and when others came, they did the brunt of the work.” Wilkins, who still works at the San Bernardino County Public Defender’s Office and whom a former colleague calls a “true believer who would fight all the time,” confirms this, though he recalls Marcus’ daily departure time to be closer to 10 a.m. But Wilkins says he came to Redlands fresh off passing the bar, having started in the office as a volunteer for several weeks
APPLY TODAY! before being hired on. Marcus, he says, made an impression. “He did almost no work. He did barely any work at all,” he says. “He was too busy leaving, not doing his job, not fighting for his clients, not setting cases for trial, not filing motions, not learning the law. He would ingratiate himself with the deputies, with the DA, with the judges. He would ingratiate himself and sell his clients out. … I wish I could say he was just stupid. He was not.” A half dozen attorneys who worked with Marcus in the San Bernardino Public Defender’s Office all share similar stories of how he would plea out defendants who should have gone to trial, ask virtually no questions during evidentiary hearings and declare conflicts whenever cases got tough or complicated. They all say it appeared Marcus was more interested in running his construction business on the side than defending the rights of San Bernardino County’s poor, which they say is why he left so early on a daily basis. For his part, Marcus says he’s “not surprised” to hear some of his former colleagues had negative things to say about him. But he disputes ever prioritizing his construction business — which built single family homes and installed commercial display lighting — over his public defender work. “I don’t know who said that but that was always the rumor,” he says, adding that his bosses knew there was nothing to it and that his wife primarily managed the construction company. He also disagrees with the notion that he spent an inordinate time out of the office. “I don’t think that’s fair at all. I guess the thing that people perceive is that, if you’re not there at the same time as they are, that you’re not there.” Marcus says he frequently got into the office two or three hours before other attorneys trickled in. Morrison confirms this, saying it always seemed Marcus had been at the office for at least an hour when she showed up at 7 a.m. but she recalls other frustrations, like Marcus not returning phone calls from clients and their parents, sometimes leading to angry confrontations. Despite Marcus’ penchant for getting into work early, former colleagues say part of being a public defender is simply being present in court to pull your own weight when cases are called. Wilkins chuckles recalling one particular story. He was about 14 months into working with Marcus, “carrying his heavy ass,” as he puts it, when Wilkins took a couple of days off and a supervisor filled in for him. Recognizing how much of the Redlands caseload Marcus was sloughing
off on Wilkins, the supervisor immediately bumped the young attorney’s pay from $10 an hour to $25, Wilkins says. Another attorney who defended cases alongside Marcus for several stints in San Bernardino and declined to be named in the story, saying he feared Marcus might sue him in retaliaton for his honest opinion, says Marcus had a distinct reputation within the office. “It was understood that when you worked with the guy, you were going to carry his work,” he says. “It was obvious he didn’t give a shit about our clients. He was out for himself and his own convenience. But don’t get me wrong, he’s a smart guy. In trial, he’d be someone to watch because he always had a trick or two up his sleeve. The problem was he never really utilized his talent because was just too damn lazy.”

job application with the county indicates he spent his 13 years in San Bernardino entirely in the Redlands branch, according to those who worked with him, he spent the bulk of his tenure there working in other departments. And even the story of how he landed in Redlands — a sleepy retirement suburb assignment coveted by many senior attorneys in the office of 100 or so defense counsels — is the subject of controversy. George Taylor, a defense attorney in the office for decades until he semi-retired in 2010, says he was stationed in the Fontana branch, where he shared a courtroom with Marcus in the late 1990s, when word circulated that the senior attorney in Redlands was retiring. Taylor says he was in court one day when a man in the back caught his attention, called him over and told him he thought he was supposed to be in court but his case wasn’t on the day’s calendar. He asked the guy who his attorney was and he said it was Marcus. “I went over and talked to Dave,’” Taylor recalls with a laugh, saying Marcus responded by trying to dump the case on him. “He said, ‘You were the last person he talked to, you should take his case.’ I walked away.” About five minutes later, Taylor says he was walking down the courthouse hallway just outside the judges’ chambers. “Dave is walking toward me and said, ‘Fuck you, Taylor.’ I look at him and I’m thinking he’s kidding and as we get closer, he says it again, ‘Fuck you, Taylor.’ As we get closer, he says it again, ‘Fuck you.’ I said, ‘OK, fuck you, too.’ I don’t know what’s going on but I’m thinking we’re having a fuck-you contest.

know, he’s poking my chest and I’m telling him, ‘You better get your hands off me right now.’” “Then, he goes back to the office and tells my supervisor he can’t work with me, says I was dumping cases on him,” Taylor says. “Subsequently, he gets transferred to Redlands.” Marcus says he has no recollection of the altercation. “I’m not saying every conversation we had was friendly, but I don’t remember an actual confrontation,” he says, adding that he doesn’t recall his transfer to Redlands having “anything to do with George.” But allegations of laziness, absenteeism and indifference seem to have followed Marcus throughout his tenure in San Bernardino. One former high-level supervisor, who asked not to be identified disparaging Marcus, says he simply has a low opinion of the man because “he didn’t work.” “I do know that everyone, or at least my memory says that everyone who worked with him complained that they were doing all his work,” he says, quickly adding that, from a supervisor’s perspective, there were some silver linings to Marcus’ style. “You have to remember, you’re dealing with enormous numbers of cases and it drives you crazy. As a supervisor, you want to have in your arsenal of lawyers somebody who can basically move cases from open to closed as quickly as possible. Mr. Marcus excelled at that. He would go in with a big caseload and come out with nothing, all the cases having been pleaded or dealt away. … I can’t recall him ever trying a case.” For as long as Marcus worked in the San Bernardino County Public Defender’s Office — 13 years — his tenure came to an abrupt end. He’d transferred back from Redlands to one of the office’s more urban branches and, Morrison says, things weren’t going well. “The chief had to explain to him that he was expected to stay and to be in court,” she says. “There was some friction there but there were still days when he took off early. I don’t think he stayed very long.” One day a supervisor, Mark Shoup, cracked down on Marcus and he pledged to spend more time in the office, according to multiple sources familiar with the conversation. A couple of days later, Shoup arrived at the office to find Marcus’ keys sitting on his desk next to a Post-it note that said, “I quit.” Shoup declined to comment for this story — at some point during the Journal’s reporting, San Bernardino County counsel admonished employees not to talk about Marcus — but Marcus doesn’t dispute the account, though he says he also sent

an email notifying his bosses that he was giving two-week’s notice, to be served out of his accrued vacation time. Asked what pushed him to do that, Marcus says he had two young sons and wanted to spend more time with them, so he took a year off. Some years later, Marcus would apply when San Bernardino was hiring for a new chief public defender. Wilkins says he wrote a scathing email to the county administrative officer and the board of supervisors, detailing all his accusations against Marcus, who wasn’t offered the job. “I did everything I could to torpedo that,” Wilkins says, no small amount of pride in his voice.
ever arrived in Lassen County, it was the scene of an epic battle pitting the public defender in one of California’s smallest offices against a law-and-order judge in a prison town, setting the stage for an upset that would become the stuff of public defender lore, law school lessons and legal magazine profiles. Some say it also left a small, rural courthouse in tatters. Jim Chapman, a retired Lassen County supervisor who served for 36 years on the board, says to understand the battle fully, you have to understand Lassen and its county seat, Susanville, a prison town populated by guards, cattle ranchers and loggers. Calling it a law and order place, Chapman says, undersells it, and nobody embodied that ethos more than Ridgely Lazard, a retired-district-attorney-turned-superior-court-judge. “It’s a prison town full of prison guards and Lazard played that to the hilt,” Chapman says. According to court documents, that meant not allowing defendants to speak to a public defender prior to entering pleas, saying that, if he felt it was “appropriate,” he would allow them to do so before sentencing. Lazard was also prone to doling out 30-day jail sentences for failures to appear in court, ignoring mandatory drug treatment sentencing options, sometimes locking the doors while court was in session and barring public defenders from in-chambers conferences while he allowed prosecutors and private attorneys to attend. In August of 2000, Lassen tapped Toni Healy as its next public defender and she quickly began butting heads with Lazard. In September of 2004, Healy filed a petition with the court seeking to bar Lazard from hearing the public defender’s office’s cases, which accounted for 90 percent of the county’s caseload. The following month, visiting Judge Galen Hathaway
TUESDAY SENIOR DISCOUNT 10% OFF SATURDAY STUDENT DISCOUNT (W/ID) 10% OFF ruled in Healy’s favor, finding Lazard to be “biased and prejudiced” against her office and stating that Healy’s allegations were supported by court records, transcripts and sworn statements. The decision prevented one of Lassen’s two judges from hearing 90 percent of the county’s caseload. It also left Healy battered, and within days of the ruling, she announced her retirement. Into this scene strolled Marcus, fresh off a year spent cross-country road tripping with his wife and kids. Initial reviews were glowing. “When he showed up, it was very evident he knew what he was doing,” says Robert Grant, a private investigator who worked with the public defender’s office at the time. “He immediately showed, ‘Hey, I got this.’” Paul Drevenstedt, now a supervising deputy public defender in Ventura County, was Marcus’ first hire, brought in a couple of months after he took over the office. Drevenstedt, who was fresh out of law school at the time, says he loved working for Marcus. “I’m a manager now and I, to this day, talk to public defenders about my first manager,” he says. “Dave did a very good job of instilling in me a dedication to this type of work, the clientele we serve and doing the best job you can for your clients. He stressed that this job can be emotionally taxing and that you have to find ways not to let it chew you up.” Drevenstedt says he always felt supported by Marcus but never micromanaged. Journal attempts to reach all other attorneys who worked under Marcus in Lassen — including current Public Defender Rhea Giannotti — were unsuccessful. For his part, Chapman says Marcus was like the golden child, who stepped competently into a chaotic situation and got along with everyone. “He was kind of a bright star within the county family,” Chapman says of Marcus, who brought his office in under budget six of his seven years there.

conversation has remained focused on his relatively distant past — the subject of his qualifications that are at the heart of the lawsuit challenging his appointment is off limits, as are the letters of no confidence and grievances filed by his current employees. “I think just that things are getting substantially better,” Marcus says. “I think it’s indicated by the fact that we’re out there doing our jobs. I think we’re doing a great job for the public and our clients. I want people to know we’re working very hard to carry out our function defending — I hate to use the word indigents; I’d rather just say our clients.” Few in the office dispute this. But in a series of interviews with about a half-dozen employees — all of whom declined to be publicly identified criticizing their boss — staff and deputy public defenders make clear they feel the office is carrying on its function in spite of Marcus. There’s simply no choice, they say, as they have thousands of clients who depend on them and they carry more than 80 percent of the county’s caseload. If the office stumbles, so does the Humboldt County Superior Court. But they allege Marcus does little to fill a leadership role, pull his own weight or advise them on cases. When Deputy Public Defender Owen Tipps recently departed to take a job with the court, employees say it was the office’s deputies — not Marcus — who figured out how to divide up his duties and caseload. Multiple employees allege Marcus is “content to do as little as possible.” It is perhaps noteworthy that when filling out the references section of his application for the position in Humboldt, Marcus didn’t list anyone from the public defender’s offices he spent a combined 20 years in. Instead, he listed two “professional” references: his friend of 30 years Chris Cella — a partner in the law firm Cella, Lange and Cella — and a man named William Naeve, an Irvine attorney who Marcus had gone to law school with almost 40 years earlier. Reached by phone, Naeve seems surprised when asked about his impressions of Marcus. He’s ducking into a meeting and can’t talk, he says. “I never worked with the guy, just went to law school with him,” Naeve says, asking the reporter to call him back later in the day. Subsequent voicemails seeking additional comment went unreturned. ● Thadeus Greenson is the Journal’s news editor. Reach him at 442-1400, extension 321, or email@example.com.

The Best Thing Since Homemade Bread
Learning to bake with the Eureka Emblem Club By Nora Mounce
gain, folks, it’s flour, salt, water and yeast,” repeats Linda Barry, attempting to assuage her students’ fear of baking bread. In your granny’s day, baking bread was a household chore, as unassuming as hanging out the laundry. While a lucky few come home to the aromatic embrace of freshly baked bread, the majority of loaves on the American dinner table are store bought. Local Eureka Emblem Club members Suzie Owsley and Linda Barry take this as a personal challenge. The talented duo want to get Humboldt County baking, old-school style. On a Sunday afternoon in July, more than 50 students arrived at the Eureka Elks Lodge on Herrick Avenue. Mostly women, young and old, with a sprinkle of men, sit in front of large mixing bowls. Long tables are dressed with colorful tablecloths and a spread of fruit jams from Centerville Farms in Ferndale. Friendly volunteers dart between tables, making certain each student has the correct ratio of flour, salt and yeast, and refilling empty water glasses. Like our teachers, the volunteers are members of the Eureka Emblem Club No. 298. Founded in 1917, the original Emblem Club was a group of Elks ladies who came

together to wrap bandages during World War I. These days, the Eureka chapter is keen on community service and cultivating practical skills. “Have you tried the blueberry?” asks Joanne, a friendly woman seated opposite me, as she spreads a deep purple jam across a slice of bread. We chat while sampling bread accompanied by Kerry Gold butter, Irish cheddar cheese and local jam. Across the table, Norma, a stylish woman with a white coif, gets a laugh from our table saying she was “dragged here,” her first cooking class since home ec in high school. Owsley dons a headset and we settle down. She begins by telling us that anyone can bake a beautiful loaf of artisan bread — no kneading required. The Emblem Club volunteers spread across the room, measuring 2 cups of water into each of our mixing bowls. Owsley instructs us to stir the ingredients with a wooden spoon, the most demanding task of the afternoon. Next, the Emblem Club volunteers come by and stretch plastic wrap across our bowls. And voila! Suzie tells us to take the bowls home and let the dough rise for the next 12 to 23 hours (on the counter, in the laundry room — coastal Humboldt’s

Suzie Owsley’s No-Knead Bread Adapted from Jim Lahey of Sullivan Street Bakery. Makes 1 large loaf. Substitute 1 cup whole wheat flour for white or beer for 1 cup of the water for more flavor variation and fiber. Add 1 ½ cup Kalamata olives, chopped, squeezed and patted dry, to the initial mixture if desired. Just omit the salt if you do. Ingredients: 3 cups all-purpose or bread flour, plus flour for dusting (King Arthur recommended) heaping ¼ teaspoon instant yeast and 1 ¼ teaspoon salt 2 cups water (tap is fine) at about 70 F Instructions: In a large bowl combine flour, yeast and salt. Add between 1 ¾ -2 cups water and stir until blended; dough will be sticky. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rest for 12 to 23 hours at warm room temperature, about 70 F. Your kitchen counter works. The dough is ready when its surface is lightly dotted with bubbles. Lightly flour a work surface and place the dough on it. Sprinkle it with a little more flour and fold it over on itself once or twice. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let it rest about 15 minutes. Using just enough flour to keep the dough from sticking, gently and quickly shape the dough into a ball. Generously coat a cotton (not terry cloth) kitchen towel with flour. Put the dough seam side down on the cloth and dust with more flour. Cover with another cotton towel and let rise for about 2 hours. When it’s ready, the dough will be more than doubled in size and won’t spring back readily when poked with your finger. At least 30 minutes before the dough is ready, heat the oven to 450 F. Put a 5- to 8-quart heavy covered pot with lid (castiron, enamel, Pyrex or ceramic) in the oven to heat. When the dough is ready, carefully remove the pot from the oven. Uncover the dough and slide your hand under the bottom towel to turn the dough over into the pot, seam side up; it’s OK if it looks a mess. Shake the pan once or twice if the dough is unevenly distributed; it will straighten during baking. Score the bread with a lame, (a French tool resembling razor blade) or a sharp knife to allow your loaf to expand while baking. Replace the lid and bake 30 minutes before removing the lid and baking another 20 to 30 minutes, until the loaf is browned. Cool on a rack for 1 hour. ●

weather is ideal for letting dough rise). Owsley’s dead simple recipe comes from the teachings of Jim Lahey, owner of the Sullivan Street Bakery in New York City. Lahey developed the now famous recipe in 2006 and caught the attention of New York Times food columnist Mark Bittman. Bittman described Lahey’s bread as, “an artisan bakery loaf, with a crackling crust, open-holed crumb, light texture and fantastic flavor.” The magic formula of “no-knead bread” or “Dutch oven bread” depends on a slow countertop fermentation, anywhere from 12 to 23 hours. Owsley believes Lahey provided this window of time to appease our busy lives but she promises your bread will turn out beautifully regardless of whether the dough sits for 14 or 20 hours. Owsley assembles her own dough up front, demonstrating that an endless array of delicious “mixers” can be added before leaving the dough to rise, including chunks of white cheddar, Kalamata olives or shredded Parmesan. The second critical step to no-knead bread requires a cast iron or enameled ceramic Dutch oven (or heavy pot with a lid) to withstand the high baking temp of 450 F. The bread obtains its crackly crust and soft, chewy interior by self-steaming in the covered pot in the oven; commercial bakeries use convection ovens that automatically release moisture to achieve this same texture. Owsley prefers a timeworn clay pot that she inherited from her aunt, which requires pre-soaking, but I love using my 5-quart Lodge Dutch oven. This bread recipe fits inside perfectly and the pot comes out untarnished every time. You can use a Le Creuset pot but I warn you from experience: Remove your plastic lid handle with a screwdriver or it will corrode along with the color of your pot. Using large poster boards to illustrate each step, Owsley wraps up her lesson before turning the stage over to Linda Barry. She presents recipes for dinner rolls, which she promises freeze beautifully, and a rustic peasant bread. Barry demonstrates techniques for basic kneading, which she finds relaxing. For her, bread baking is more of a hobby than the necessity it was for her grandmother, who baked three times a week. We leave with a thick packet of recipes, coupons and step-by-by instructions for baking off our dough at home. Students proudly share photos of their bread for the Eureka Emblem Cooking Classes Facebook page. Find the Eureka Emblem Cooking Series on Facebook or email firstname.lastname@example.org for information. Next up, the Big Easy comes to Eureka on Oct. 19 for a Cajun cooking class led by world-traveled chef Louise Zuleger ($45). And already on the schedule for 2018, Em-

Seeds and Surfing Art at Reggae on the River By Gabrielle Gopinath email@example.com
his past Sunday festivalgoers at Reggae on the River reveled in good vibes, positive sounds and gorgeous summer weather. Any storm clouds that might be gathering in Babylon were far from the collective consciousness of this happy crowd. Coot Wyman, the affable frontman of the Chico reggae fusion band Mystic Roots, exhorted us to smile and assured us we all looked beautiful. He moved to pre-empt any audience concerns regarding his fresh haircut with good humor: “I know you expect me to have some dreads, but I need more room for weed in me head.” The crowd loved it. Up next in the lineup, London-based singer Marla Brown reiterated a positive message in her upbeat, pop-infused songs. Later in the day, roots reggae vocalist and songwriter Dezarie, from the U.S. Virgin Islands, regaled an appreciative crowd with songs like “Mamma Knows Best,” speaking to women reggae artists’ ongoing struggle to achieve recognition and gender parity — no easy achievement in a genre still heavily influenced by the patriarchal beliefs prevalent in orthodox Rastafarianism. It was hard not to interpret Dezarie’s song selection as a callback to “Jah Knows Best,” one of the modern-day classics of the roots reggae genre, recorded by Sizzla in 2004. “Message music is the future,” she told the audience. “Recognize your true worth!” Three flags were waving in front of the stage: the flag of the U.S. Virgin Islands, a tricolor flag with a Rastafari lion rampant, and a flag reproducing the design of the United States flag in black and white, with a green cannabis leaf positioned in the upper quarter where the stars normally appear. Afternoon heat kept some festivalgoers in the shade, but those sun-worshippers who did get on their feet enjoyed a lot of space for personal expression. Hula-hoopers and hacky-sackers did their thing. Volunteers used fire hoses to cool the dancers down. Sweaty revelers went slip-sliding in the spray. One man danced on stilts; one played a didgeridoo. “I got
that ecstasy,” a third said quietly to passersby. “Is that a didgeridoo?” someone inquired. “No, it’s a dildo,” the drone purveyor shot back. Katherine Ramirez of Mystic Roots was calling from the stage, “How ‘bout the ladies? Can I get a ganja song for the ladies?” the crowd raised a cheer in response: yes she could. Over in the art zone, Ferndale-based surf artist Shawn Griggs made a strong showing with his signature oil paintings of skeleton surfers riding gnarly waves. The skeletons are among the elements of imagery Griggs draws from the Mexican holiday Dia de las Muertes, Day of the Dead, which, he says, “has found a firm hold within my imagination.” Griggs describes himself as “an avid Humboldt County surfer with a hunger for travel,” and the beaches and rocky headlands that appear in his paintings reflect the scope of that experience. The large landscape he was working on over the weekend may represent a new direction; it’s an intricately painted aerial view of the festival by night that shows packed dancers gyrating in the concert bowl and the hills rising up behind it, a full moon rising above. In the festival’s Art Cave, close-up photographic prints of cannabis stood out from the flights of red, green, black and gold paintings that surrounded them. They are credited to M.T. Hamilton of CannaGraphics, a fledgling Humboldt-based startup dedicated to “macro cannabis trichrome photography.” You’ve seen seeds and buds before, but maybe not like this. In these photographs, plant parts are isolated against clean monochrome backgrounds and viewed in extreme close-up. You are able to see individual pistils and stamens at this scale, as you would if you were inspecting a bud under a low-powered microscope. A macro view of the spiral nodule that forms when a seed has just begun to quicken re-enchants the germination process, making the plant’s birth seem like an event. Despite the photographs’ striking qual-
Macro trichrome photographic print by M.T. Anderson of CannaGraphics, 2017. Courtesy of CannaGraphics
ities, it’s fair to say the longstanding popularity of these types of close-up views in the cannabis press has tempered their novelty effect. Ever since indelibly colorful entrepreneur Tom Fourcade founded industry pioneer High Times in 1974, one of the most important parts of the magazine has been its centerfold spreads, where enticingly detailed close-up photographs of frosty buds appear each month in witty emulation of the Playboy template introduced by Hugh Hefner 20 years earlier. In short, these grower’s eye views will be familiar to the cannabis cognoscenti who make up a higher-than-average percentage of the ROTR viewing public. Like most other examples of contemporary cannabis imagery, Hamilton’s pictures straddle the art/commerce divide, illustrating the degree to which cannabis
imagery remains entwined with the industry’s commercial side. What any of this has to do with reggae music is, well, history. The degree to which the reggae establishment and the burgeoning cannabis industry are mutually supporting and cross-branded means that it is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish commercial from non-commercial uses — ironic for a musical genre that promotes anti-corporate values. Maintaining a healthy distance from Babylon is likely to involve increasingly nimble acts of self-justification. Or maybe the fabled metropolis was never really as remote as some believed.

Thursday It’s not often that you can find a free show from the Absynth Quartet but tonight is one of those rare nights. AQ4 will be up at the Mad River Brewing Co. Tap Room doing its polka-dot grass thing at 6 p.m. Bring the kiddos down to groove along. Out of Chicago comes the immensely talented The Claudettes, who have recently put out a really good EP called Pull Closer to Me: The Claudettes, Live in the Piano Room, which was born out of an accident at a small music festival last year in Connecticut. After the power went out at said festival, the band improvised and went acoustic for the rest of their set in the middle of the crowd and, after a standing ovation, they realized they were onto something. Out of that experience came the idea to record the acoustic-based record they’re on the road with now, while working on their upcoming album due later this year. I gave a listen to their EP and the band definitely sounds at home playing around with dynamics and weaving in and out of gentle breaks and swelling crescendos. They tip their collective hat nicely to T. Rex, Pink Floyd and Otis Redding among others on these recordings. They’ll be stopping by Eureka this evening at The Palm Lounge around 9 p.m. and they’re only asking $5 for a cover, which is well worth it. Pick up a copy of their EP and welcome them from the Windy City.
Friday It’s Arts Arcata! this evening, so stroll around the plaza and check out the many
The Claudettes play the Palm Lounge on Thursday, Aug. 10 at 9 p.m. Courtesy of the artists
local musicians providing the soundtrack to your night. I bumped into local bass superhero Dan Davis at the penultimate Crabs game of the season and, after a brief baseball chat, he informed me that Wild Otis would be rocking away at The Mad River Brewing Co. tonight at 6 p.m. So if you’re not feeling the Arcata vibe, head on up ol’ Blue Lake way and check out these rootsy rockers for free. Leave a tip if you enjoy their tunes. I’ve been talking Dead a lot lately due to Jerry’s recent birthday and the many celebrations that have taken place for that occasion. I’ve also been politely reprimanded from some of my Dead Head friends for not finding the time yet to watch the new Dead documentary Long Strange Trip, which I swear I’ll get around to. To get back on track here, you’ve got another chance to hear the Dead tunes courtesy of Hardly Deadly and Rosewater, who are sharing the stage at The Jam in Arcata around 7 p.m. from what I could tell. Seems like an unusually early start time but hey, gotta make time for “Fire on the Mountain” and “Morning Dew,” right? It’s only $10 for this show, so get in and get groovin’. The Last-minute Men return to Cafe Mokka at 8 p.m. to play their international tunes. It’s a free show and kids are welcome. Swedish pysch-rockers Dungen are in town and playing two sets at The Miniplex in Arcata.
28 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017 • northcoastjournal.com
They’ve put out their ninth album called Häxan, which was commissioned as an instrumental score to Lotte Reiniger’s 1926 film The Adventures of Prince Achmen (don’t worry, I’m not cool enough to have ever seen it either) by the Swedish Film Institute. The band will be playing some of their original compositions from this new release along with songs from their earlier albums, as well. Showtime is at 8:30 p.m. and has a $20 ticket price. Colin of new local band Daily Driver shares that they’re headlining their first show at The Logger Bar tonight. It’s a “banjo-driven pop-grass dance-machine” from Arcata comprised of brothers Colin and Cameron of the No Good Redwood Ramblers, along with Lyndsey Battle. They’re joined by local dark alt-folk duo Electro Saloon (featuring my better half) at 9 p.m. and this one’s free as well. Fresh off their show on the big stage at The Folklife Festival, The Trouble are at The Palm Lounge in Eureka tonight playing with “heavy minimalist” funkers Peach Purple at the same time and for $5.
Saturday As of press time, I think the Yes We Cann Parade and Hullabaloo is still on in Arcata, which parades through town and ends up at the Arcata Ballpark with music
starting around 3:20 p.m. with local artists Dynasty One, Winstrong, Silver Hammer, The New Traditions and B Swizlo’s Hip Hop Lounge. If you took part in the parade, I think you get in for free, otherwise it’s $20 for the festivities. Honky tonk/ soul band The Detours return to the Mad River Brewing Co. Tap Room at 6 p.m. It’s a free show, so buy ’em a beer or leave ’em a tip. Avant-psych rock is on the bill again at The Miniplex tonight with Seattle duo Zen Mother and local dune-trippers White Manna who are gearing up to tour Europe before too long. This show’s at 9 p.m. and $7 gets you in the door. If you had a good time at the Yes We Cann Hullabaloo, there’s an afterparty at Humboldt Brews in Arcata at 9:30 p.m. with Cold Blue Water, Rosewater and DJ Livingearth. The ticket price is unclear at the moment but I know you’ll save $5 when you show your wristband from said Hullabaloo. l Full show listings in the Journal’s Music and More grid, the Calendar and online. Bands and promoters, send your gig info, preferably with a high-res photo or two, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Andy Powell is a congenital music lover and hosts The Album of the Week Show on KWPT 100.3 FM Tuesdays at 6 p.m. He still finds email pretty amazing.

The North Coast Scottish Society’s annual Frolic in the Glen and Highland Games are back in full kilt for more high-stepping, haggis-eating fun Saturday, Aug. 12 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at Rohner Park (free admission, $5 admission to heavy athletics competition in the rodeo area). The frolicking kicks off at 10 a.m. with the Piper’s Call by Humboldt Highlanders Pipes and Drums and continues all day with events the whole family can enjoy. Bring the kiddos, too? Yes, we clan. The event is a great way to learn more about Scotland and Celtic history. There’ll be historical reenactments, clothing demonstrations, weaving, piping and drumming and for good fun, the popular Beard and Bonny Knees Contest. In the Village Marketplace, peruse Celtic-themed arts and crafts booths and pick up a kilt (that doesn’t have someone in it) or some chain mail for that special someone. And to fortify you for your turn at the wellie toss, there’s haggis and other Scottish food, fish and chips, hot dogs, drinks and more. New this year is the Scottish Heavy Athletic Association Heavy Athletics in the rodeo arena/grounds. These games are a big deal — they’re a full competition like the ones held at larger divisional highland games — and feature a stone put, a regulation-size caber toss (that’s the big, big one), a hammer throw and heavy weights thrown aboot. A real clash of the tartans. And if all that isn’t enough, Gatehouse Well, Good Company, Michael Ross and the Millbillies, Ukaleleians and the Academy of Irish Dance will keep things lively all day with music and dancing. — Kali Cozyris

“If the man comin’, make ready for the man.” Dark Tower
Fight and Flight
Tower wobbles, Detroit burns and Kidnap is on the run By Jennifer Fumiko Cahill firstname.lastname@example.org
THE DARK TOWER. It’s never surprising when a Stephen King novel series is adapted for film, but an eight-book series? In 95 minutes? The Dark Tower turns out to be a later chunk of that series, with a prequel TV show on the horizon. One hopes that project fares better and makes the most of the actors wasted here. We’re told in the opening shot that the only thing guarding our world is the tower at the center of the universe, which can be felled “by the mind of a child.” With that setup, we meet Jake (Tom Taylor), a gaunt adolescent obsessively drawing creepy scenes from his nightmares about another world filled with rodent-like creatures masquerading as humans, sapping the minds of children to power a laser attack on the aforementioned tower. There, the Gunslinger, a dusty, sad-eyed Idris Elba, duels with the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey), who’s less like Johnny Cash and more like Gucci-era Tom Ford’s idea of Lucifer. Eventually, Jake leaps into that other world to team up with the Gunslinger, hike the barren landscape and battle the Man in Black back on Earth. The story connects to King’s other works and hits all his buttons: a troubled psychic boy, his well-meaning mother and cold stepfather, a heroic late father and even a wild-eyed prophetic homeless man. Director Nikolaj Arcel (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, 2009) moves through the exposition so quickly that it feels like a hasty book report, skimming past the
deeper themes in a story ultimately about fathers and sons. Action sequences are rushed and obscured by darkness, though the supernatural gunplay is good fun. The Dark Tower is, however, a chance to see Elba — who was alternately terrifying and charismatic as Stringer Bell in HBO’s The Wire and who overshadowed lead Charlie Hunnam in Pacific Rim (2013) — in a too-rare lead role. Paired with a young actor not quite up to the task, Elba carries the film with his glowering intensity, quiet grief and hesitant attempts at connecting. McConaughey, too, is at least having a good time, runway-strutting around with his disco-goth shirt unbuttoned, catching bullets and bullying his management staff. One wonders what they might have done with more time and script. PG13. 95M. BROADWAY, FORTUNA, MILL CREEK, MINOR.
DETROIT. In making a movie based on a true story, even a documentary, there will always be something left out and there will always be some of the teller in the telling. In this moment, making a movie about racist police brutality seems doubly risky, but also doubly necessary. Director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal, who teamed up for The Hurt Locker (2008) and Zero Dark Thirty (2012) have stitched together a fictionalized account of the crushing story of people killed during the 1967 Detroit riots based on witness testimony, records and interviews.

ATOMIC BLONDE. Stunt-man-turneddirector David Leitch brings Cold War cool, exceptional fight choreography and a quieter, better paced spy movie than the trailer suggests. Charlize Theron delivers a winking, knife-edged performance. R. 109M. BROADWAY, MILL CREEK.
THE BIG SICK. Kumail Nanjiani and Zoe Kazan star in a romantic comedy that breaks new ground as boy meets girl and girl goes into coma. Michael Showalter directs this deceptively simple, unassuming movie in which the deeply funny is juxtaposed with the devastating. R. 120M. MINOR.
Listening to Democracy Now! in 2017. Kidnap may seem a departure from their previous projects but they build the film on familiar territory: fear, violence and the lingering price of survival. After a quick animated brush-up on the history of African American migration to industrial centers like Detroit, we cut to the social club bust that sparked the uprising in that city. Soon the revolt escalates from throwing bottles to looting and burning buildings, and the National Guard is rolling through the streets in tanks, shooting at kids in windows in its hunt for snipers. Into this ugly mess roll a trio of jittery, young, white cops led by Krauss (Will Poulter, all pink-faced rage), who’s put back on the street after an indisputably bad shooting/murder with a “Calm down out there” from his superior. He and his crew, aided by National Guardsmen, double down on abusing their authority to tragic results when a prank leads them to a possible sniper at the Algiers Hotel. There, Motown hopeful Larry (Algee Smith) and his pal/manager Fred (Jacob Latimore) are licking their wounds, chatting up a couple of white girls and waiting out the night after the riots cancel a performance in front of an A&R man. They, along with a handful of other black men will spend the night lined up with their faces to a wall, beaten bloody and interrogated, some of them killed. Throughout the night, Dismukes, a black security guard at a nearby grocery store, played by the earnest John Boyega (The Force Awakens, 2015), attempts to walk the tightrope of cooperating with the police when they are clearly bent on violence, looking the other way and urging calm among the hostages — and that is what they are — so they might “survive the night.” The film maintains an undercurrent of panic throughout, so we are braced for impact even when Larry is immersed in his own disappointment, singing to an empty auditorium. To a person, the actors put in
devastating performances, not only in the adrenaline-fueled night at the hotel, but in the aftermath, when the city is snowed over and the survivors are hobbled by the trauma of what they’ve endured. Aside from one ham-fisted “good cop” moment, the film and its cast succeed in showing us not only the extreme bad actors but the complicity, individual and systemic, that set the stage for their crimes and leave them unpunished. Somewhere in the relentless, unflinching violence, you may wonder if there is a point to showing all of it, face after bloodied face. The best justification comes within the movie itself, when Carl (an excellent Jason Mitchel) waves a gun and menaces his friend in imitation of a white cop, “demonstrating white power.” You’ve got to feel it to wrap your mind around it. It’s a story white Americans, directors and writers among them, can own and tell, too. R. 143M. BROADWAY, MILL CREEK, MINOR. KIDNAP. Did three films with black lead actors open in the same weekend in Humboldt? So they did. And one is even a fun, if slightly goofy, thriller. Who knew? Halle Berry plays Karla, harried waitress and divorced single mom who is tirelessly upbeat with her son. While at the park and on the phone with her divorce lawyer, a couple (Chris McGinn and Lew Temple) snatch her son (Sage Correa) and take off with him in a beater car. Dropping her phone as she runs, Karla jumps in her minivan and sets off after the kidnappers in a wild highway chase that leaves a wake of piled up cars. Why they take him doesn’t really matter — we’re in it for the chase. Talking to herself in the car, Berry’s monologues can seem a bit like self affirmations and her tough talk is clunky, but she does a solid job on the action and the ebb and flow of panic throughout the film. Sure, you’ve got to suspend disbelief and look past some messy editing, but there are genuine thrills to be had, like
36 NORTH COAST JOURNAL • Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017 • northcoastjournal.com
when the minivan runs low on gas or a cop tries to pull Karla over. Hell, there’s even a pivotal scene with a landline phone. And when the inscrutable kidnappers show themselves, McGinn, with her narrow, glinting eyes, and Temple, who may have just ended the trucker hat trend, set a new bar for greasy desperation. R. 82M.

Admission to the 60−minute event is free. Lifetree Café is located at Campbell Creek Connexion on the corner of Union and 13th St., Arcata.

Legal Notices NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF BARBARA A. SEEHAFER aka BARBARA A. JOHNSON, ETC. CASE NO. PR170219 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of BARBARA A. SEEHAFER aka BARBARA A. JOHNSON aka BARBARA A. SEEHAFER−JOHNSON A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by Petitioner, MITZI R. BARKS In the Superior Court of California, County of Humboldt. The petition for probate requests that MITZI R. BARKS be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the dece− dent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for exami− nation in the file kept by court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on August 31, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. at the Superior Court of California, County of Humboldt, 825 Fifth Street, Eureka, in Dept.: 4. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objec− tions or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the dece− dent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the Cali− fornia Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in Cali− fornia law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person inter− ested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE−154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250.

PLUNKETT RD BAYSIDE, CA 95524 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be held, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, condition, or encum− brances, including fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to pay the remaining principal sums of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $263,520.93 If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should under− stand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the prop− erty. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this infor− mation. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, benefi− ciary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a cour− tesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (800) 280− 2832 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.AUCTION.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 053958−CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should under− stand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the prop− erty. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this infor− mation. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, benefi− ciary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a cour− tesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (800) 758 − 8052 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.HOMESEARCH.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 055905−CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

eering through a small, double-glazed viewing window at the brown, desiccated body of a man who died 5,300 years ago is an uncanny experience. Should he even be on display, for the likes of me and several hundred thousand visitors a year, in this museum in Bolzano, Italy? I tell myself that, since being discovered high in the Italian Alps 26 years ago, he’s been examined more than any other human being, so a few non-invasive gazes won’t make much difference. But still ... Ötzi (ert-zi), the name given to him by an Austrian journalist (he was found in Italy’s Ötztal Alps) was discovered half-in, half-out of melting ice at 10,500 feet, close to the border with Austria (very close, resulting in years of ownership dispute between the two countries). As mummies go, Ötzi is unique, a wonderfully preserved “wet mummy,” unlike, say, dry Egyptian mummies, whose organs were removed as part of the process. Soon after his death, snow, then glacial ice, entombed Ötzi. Happily for us, the cold kept his body from decomposing. In life, he was a Caucasian male, about 110 pounds, 5 feet, 2 inches, age at death 45 years. (His weight and height were average for his time.) He’s now shrunk a little and weighs just 35 lbs. He was also a murder victim — a fact not appreciated until an X-ray taken 10 years after his discovery revealed a flint arrowhead lodged beneath his right shoulder. Ötzi probably bled to death soon after being shot from behind. Since the contents of his stomach showed that he’d stopped to enjoy a hearty meal just a few hours before the ambush, he probably didn’t realize he was in danger. And from a two-day-old deep cut on his hand, it seems he’d been in a recent fight, leading to a host of speculations about the circumstances of his murder. As interesting as the body is to researchers, his kit also tells us much about him. His copper-headed axe, for instance, was left next to him, presumably ruling out theft as a motive. Copper was the first metal to be used at the end of the Stone Age, and the 99.7 percent purity of Ötzi’s four-inch long ax-head (lashed to a yew
Reconstruction of Ötzi by paleo-artists Adrie and Alfons Kennis. Photo by Barry Evans handle) attests to the skill of metal-workers of the time, since after ore-bearing rock had been smelted, the copper was cast, cold-forged, polished and sharpened in an elaborate process. He also had an unfinished 6-foot yew longbow, together with 12 arrows in an elaborate leather quiver, a short dagger on his waist and a fire-lighting kit, complete with flint and pyrite (to create sparks) and tinder fungus. The photograph shows a reconstruction of Ötzi in life, created by twin-brother Dutch paleo-artists who based their model on computer tomography and CAT scans. Although he looks pretty hardy, he suffered from an arthritic knee, bad teeth, lyme disease, whipworm (an intestinal parasite) and possibly a head injury. Still, his strong leg muscles tell us he walked a lot — maybe he was a goat herder or a shepherd. Or was his ax a prestige item that only a tribal headman would have owned? His kit included some medicinal herbs — was he a shaman? It’s weird to realize that when the Great Pyramid of Giza was built, Ötzi had already been entombed in ice for 700 years. And he’ll be around for many years to come, since he’s kept frozen under ideal conditions to prevent decomposition. He probably won’t mind a visit if you find yourself in the South Tyrol. He may even appreciate all the attention. l Barry Evans (email@example.com) would be flattered if people paid to see his naked body 5,000 years in the future. Or anytime, really.

Meet our Employee: Cody Caan Cody Caan moved to Humboldt County two years ago when a friend from Ohio, where he grew up, called him and told him that he should move out here and that he had a place for him to stay. “After my buddy told me that he had a room for me, I decided to move out here. I started shopping at Murphy’s Market in Sunny Brae when I moved here and noticed how much it reminded me of the grocery stores back home. I thought it would be a great place to work and I have been here since,” explains Cody. Cody has been working at Murphy’s in Glendale for a year and has moved his way up to grocery supervisor. “I love working at Murphy’s. It is a great
community and working in a small, local store is great. I have never had a job where I can recognize people and know their ﬁrst and last name. It is a great feeling.” When Cody is not at work he enjoys experiencing all that the Humboldt County outdoors have to offer. “I really like to ﬁsh and hike, basically anything that you can do outside here. There is a lot to choose from.” So next time you are in Glendale swing by and say hi to Cody and the rest of the Glendale Murphy’s staff and make sure to pick up all of your grocery needs at any of the ﬁve local Murphy’s locations.
