Lost Coast Sessions: Word Humboldt

Sep 28, 2018
KHSU

See someone talking to themselves at Winco? That might be a poet. 

Word Humboldt is a community of writers who gather at Northtown Coffee in Arcata to read poetry and support each other. Anyone who wants to show up, can.

And they hone their words in any way they can: by editing, by writing it on spot, or in the aisles at the grocery store.

North Coast Journal

They became local internet celebrities last year, the barn owls in the belfry of the Old Steeple music venue in Ferndale. But the most recent brood of owlets met tragedy earlier ths year and now only Truman, the mother owl remains.  The North Coast Journal's Thad Greenson previews Kimberley Wear's story on what happened to the owls and what that means for wildlife.

Jennifer Fumiko Cahill shares the story by Steven Saint in the most recent Journal about the boom and bust of worldwide quinoa production and how it reached the small organic farmers of Humboldt County.

If you are an artist or in a creative field, you may find that you come up against blocks in how you create or do your best work.  A new workshop series hopes to help jump start your creative process.

Facilitator and counsellor Susan Abbot talked with the KHSU Magazine about her "Artists Way" workshops starting October 11th and a series of workshops on promoting artists' work, "Public Relations and Social Media for Visual artists."

Yurok Tribe

The Yurok Tribe announced it is cancelling its commercial fishery for a third consecutive year due to a relatively low salmon abundance forecast for the fall of 2018. Dave Hillemeier, program director for Yurok Tribe Fisheries, spoke with KHSU about the recent announcement.

The Tribe is participating in the ongoing process to remove the lower four Klamath River dams, which are slated for decommissioning in the next couple of years. Those efforts, in concert with resolving water allocation issues and restoring habitat, are the most effective actions that can be taken to rebuild the Klamath salmon population.

From NPR

President Trump warned at his rally in Pennsylvania on Wednesday night that if his party loses in November's midterm elections, the "radical Democrat mob" will take away everything he's achieved since his election, while encouraging crime and socialism.

It was an echo of a tweet he sent over the weekend and used again at a rally in Iowa on Tuesday — giving rise to a line that Republicans have been quick to seize upon as they try to sustain a newly-enthused GOP base in the wake of the divisive confirmation battle for now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
