City Files Final Brief in Dash Cam Case

  • Police patrol car dash cameras record all kinds of footage. But who gets to watch it?
The police dash camera video depicting Eureka police officers’ Dec. 6, 2012 arrest of a juvenile suspect is a confidential personnel record and can only be disclosed through a strict process that governs such records, the city of Eureka argued in a brief submitted to the California court of appeals last week.

The city is appealing Humboldt County Superior Court Judge Christopher Wilson’s May ruling that granted a Journal petition seeking to have a portion of the video released to the public. While Wilson found release of the video was in the public interest, the city is arguing that he erred by not affording the video the statutory protections granted to police officer personnel records by state law.

In its recent filing, the city argues that the Journal used the process of petitioning the juvenile court to release the video as a way to circumvent the protections afforded police officer personnel records. Known as the Pitchess statutes, California Penal Code 832.7 and Evidence Code sections 1043 and 1046, outline a strict procedure for parties seeking to access police officer personnel records.

“… The city’s argument is that since Pitchess law applies and Pitchess procedures were not complied with, the evidence should never have even been reviewed in chambers by the Trial Court,” the city argues in its brief.

Virtually from the outset of this case, the Journal has argued that the video in question is not a police officer personnel record, an argument that Wilson addressed and agreed with in his May ruling. And in his brief to the appellate court, the Journal’s attorney, Paul Nicholas Boylan, pointed out that while the city has repeatedly maintained that the video is a confidential record, it has presented the court with no evidence that it is actually a part of an officer’s personnel file.

With the city’s filing, the case now moves to the appellate court’s ready list, and oral arguments will be scheduled at a future date. That could be in a matter of weeks or a year.

A full report on the city’s opening brief can be found here, and a report on the Journal’s response can be found here. And those who enjoy poring over court filings can read the briefs themselves in the PDFs below.

Tituses Get $150K in Fair Board Settlement

  • Caroline and Stuart Titus.
The Humboldt County Fair Association has settled a wrongful termination lawsuit brought by its former General Manager, Stuart Titus, and his wife Caroline, agreeing to pay the couple $150,000.

Describing the lawsuit as “all consuming,” Caroline Titus told the Journal that she and Stuart are happy to put it behind them and move forward. The couple owns the Ferndale Enterprise, in which Caroline, as its publisher and editor, has covered the lawsuit relentlessly.

“I feel like we had a principle — the First Amendment — and we exposed them throughout this,” she said. “We’ve exposed them, their lies, their cover-ups and they ended up paying us to do it.”

The Tituses sued the Humboldt County Fair Association in March of 2014, about a year after the board voted 13-7 not to renew Stuart’s contract as the association’s general manager, a job he’d held for 22 years. The Tituses alleged that the board fired Stuart in retaliation for his unwillingness to keep Caroline from writing pieces in the paper that made board members “look bad,” as well as his repeated reminders that the board should abide by state open-meeting laws. In court filings, the fair association countered that Stuart’s job performance and the way he interacted with board members were solely responsible for the decision to let him go.

The fair association announced the settlement in a press release last week, which comically noted that the “settlement was made as a compromise and not an omission of liability.” It’s safe to assume that the association meant “admission” instead of “omission” but, in any case, the $150,000 settlement will be covered by the association's insurance carrier.

“Frankly, we are just glad this time-consuming case has been settled and we can now focus on improvements at the fairgrounds, preparing for our 2016 fair and dealing with the many events that we have going on at the fairgrounds,” said fair General Manager Richard Conway in the release.

The press release also noted the fair recently received a $500,000 grant to make needed facility improvements, but the release erroneously stated the money came from the California State Fair Association, which doesn’t exist. In fact, the grant comes from the California Department of Food and Agriculture.

Caroline, who also recently sued the association under the California Public Records Act to force it to make all of its financial records public, said the grant is just the latest example of why the association needs to operate openly and transparently, and called her records lawsuit one of her “proudest accomplishments.”

“The fair has always received general fund monies,” she said, “so it’s really important that the public knows what happens to their money. I feel very proud that any member of the public, whether it’s me or you or anyone else, can go look and see how they’re handling our money.”

For more on the Tituses and their lawsuit, see past coverage here and here. And see the full, unedited fair association press release copied below:

Humboldt County Fair Settles Lawsuit,
Receives Large Grant & More!
Ferndale- A lawsuit brought by Stuart and Caroline Titus against the Humboldt County Fair Association was recently settled out of court without having to go to a jury trial. 
On January 5, 2016 the Federal Court in San Francisco held a Confidential Mandatory Settlement Conference relating to the case of Stuart and Caroline Titus v. the Humboldt County Fair Association and their directors.
Barbara Tyler, the Claims Manager from California Fair Services Authority, the HCFA's insurance provider, resolved the case with asettlement to Stuart and Caroline Titus and their attorneys in the amount of $150,000. The settlement was made as a compromise and was not an omission of liability. Settlement funds will be paid by the California Fair Services Authority.
General Manager, Richard Conway said,”Frankly, we are just glad this time-consuming case has been settled and we can now focus on improvements at the Fairgrounds, preparing for our 2016fair and dealing with the many events that we have going on at the fairgrounds.” David Mogni, Chairman of the Board of Directors echoed Conway’s remarks saying, “The lawsuit has been very disruptive and it is good to have it settled. I believe I can speak for the entire board when I say that we are just happy to put all of our focus back on the fairgrounds.”
Mogni added, “We have a lot of good things happening.  We recently received a grant for nearly $500,000 from the CaliforniaState Fair Association to make needed improvements. The majority of money will go to replacing the aging/failing water system at the fairgrounds. Some of it will be used to replace the asbestos floor at Belotti Hall.  (We are hoping the grant will cover both but we may be asking our community partners to pitch in to help with the Belotti project.) We received another grant for $12,500 from the Berg Foundation tomake much needed repairs to the Poultry Building at the Fairgrounds. As one of the oldest, if not the oldest building on the fairgrounds, we are happy to have it once more be usable for FFA, 4-H and other groups.
“And…” Mogni said, “That’s not all. In other big news, General Manager, Richard Conway was recently appointed to the board of directors for the California Authority of Racing Fairs.  This is wonderful news and will open the door to many relationships we feel will be helpful to our future racing schedule. Richard’s background is entrenched in the racing industry. He has 20 years of experience training racehorses throughout California and abroad. Specifically, he has trained for the internationally prominent Godolphin Racing Stable owned by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum of the United Arab Emirates.  While working for Godolphin, Richard managed stables in UAE, France, England and Ireland.  In addition, he has considerable training experience in both the Northern and Southern California circuits. The entire board is thrilled with this appointment.”
The Humboldt County Fair will be holding it’s 120th fair August 18-28, 2016.  More information is available on their web site, or by calling the fair office at 707-786-9511.

I am certain, however, that it would be a comfort to be able to consider the options afforded by this bill. And I wouldn’t deny that right to others.”

“People have a right to bear arms but that’s just the point — to bear arms. Not to leave them lying around unprotected. It has nothing to do with, ‘When someone goes to bed at night, can they have a gun on their nightstand?’ Of course they can. This is America."
— Mills, outlining his proposed ordinance that would require business and home owners to lock up firearms when they weren’t on the premises. Mills later shelved his proposal in the face of a pro-gun backlash.

— Loretta Hancock, relaying what she told a police dispatcher after stumbling upon Masala, the Sequoia Park Zoo’s missing red panda.

“It’s kind of like if my kids were trying to share candy and I yelled at them and told them sharing isn’t allowed and one of them has to beat up the other and take all the candy — that’s kind of what I feel Congress has done to us.”
— Karuk Tribe Natural Resources Policy Advocate Craig Tucker on Congress’ failure to pass legislation to enact the landmark Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement, leading to its dissolution.

"Please have hot coffee and a unicorn available at load in. Immediately following load in the unicorn is to be slaughtered and cooked to perfection. This will serve as our sound check snack. Please make sure the unicorn is cage free and grass fed. A horse with a party hat on will not be accepted as a substitute.”
— The Devil Makes Three’s contract rider for a show at HSU’s Center Arts.

Make Money off Your Problems

Posted By on Sat, Dec 5, 2015 at 2:31 PM

Did your booboo leave you and take the dehumidifier you went 50-50 on? Want to get your deposit back from Floyd Squires? Fugly haircut got you down? Take your problems to Southern California, to court and to the bank.

Okay, it's not going to be an actual court, with an actual judge. It's going to be a TV courtroom with an as-yet-to-be-named celebrity judge, and the USA network has put the call out to humble Humboldt county residents to come down and squabble on daytime TV.

Here's the blurb they sent us:

From the Executive Producer of WIPEOUT comes a new court television show like you've never seen before! Because in our courtroom, you argue your case to a . . . A CELEBRITY JUDGE! 

Bringing your problems to a CELEBRITY JUDGE? Sounds great! And it gets better! They will fly you down to Los Angeles (thus paving the way for a future case against the perenially-delayed airlines at the California Redwood Coast - Humboldt County Airport), put you up for the night, pay out if you win the case, pay out if you lose the case, and pay you a "substantial" amount as an appearance fee.

According to casting assistant Tashina Diaz, almost any kind of "lighthearted dispute" will be considered for the show, even someone not paying for dinner like they said they would. All civil claims below $5,000 will be considered. 

The downsides? Well, there's that whole not actually being a legal court thing, so any judgement made on television won't hold up for future litigation. Also, television tends to bring out the stupid in people, so maybe hide this announcement from your more naive friends/roommates/college students. 

Diaz refused to give us any hints as to who the CELEBRITY JUDGE might be, but fingers crossed for Guy Fieri making "This is Triple-D de jure!" his new catchphrase.

If you're interested, Diaz can be reached at

  • Sidney Dominitz in Trinidad, the town he called home for 40 years.
Sidney Dominitz, a longtime Humboldt State University journalism lecturer and editor of the Northcoast Environmental Center’s EcoNews, died early Saturday morning of complications from a heart condition. He was 74.

A fixture on the North Coast for roughly 40 years, Dominitz is remembered by friends and colleagues as a man whose sharp wit and warm heart spilled through his editing pen as he improved the work of those around him. A born copy editor, Dominitz devoted nearly three decades of his life to editing the EcoNews, using his mastery of the English language and wealth of newspaper experience to fight for the forests, waterways and wildlife he loved.

On the Klamath dams front

Posted By on Sun, Feb 8, 2015 at 10:23 AM

Klamath River at Hopkins Creek, close to Weitchpec. - PHOTO BY KEN MALCOMSON
  • Photo by Ken Malcomson
  • Klamath River at Hopkins Creek, close to Weitchpec.

Former Oregon state senator Jason Atkinson has co-produced a new documentary about the conflict between users of the Klamath River and how they finally hashed out the historic Klamath Basin Comprehensive Agreement to take out four dams and restore salmon and other habitat. The agreement awaits Congress' approval. The film, by Atkinson and filmmaker Jeff Martin, is called A River Between Us and comes out this spring.

High Country New interviewed Atkinson about it, and notes that he was the "first Republican to ever receive a 100 percent approval rating from the Oregon League of Conservation Voters."

"Atkinson, a fifth generation farmer along the Klamath, has a long personal history with the river. He has fly-fished there since he was old enough to hold a rod and learned from his grandparents — one an Eisenhower Republican, the other, a Reagan-hating liberal — that restoring the Klamath did not have to be a polarizing issue.

HCN reports that Atkinson "hopes the film will help spur Congress to authorize the agreement — what he calls 'the greatest conservation opportunity in America.'” Atkinson, in the interview, says that it's wrong to think of the Klamath River battle as "right versus left, dams versus fish":

"HCN: But today’s political climate makes that kind of model look almost unattainable. Why is it that so many environmental initiatives have become lightning rods for partisanship?

"JA: In my mind it was 1973 when the Endangered Species Act was passed—by a Republican no less. People had no idea what the unintended consequences of that would be. Ten years later, that Act was seen as a declaration of war on small communities across the country, and I would argue that that’s when partisanship really stepped in for the first time in the conservation debate.

"The thing that frustrated me was that having grown up in agriculture, I know that every year, once harvest is done, all the farmers go fishing. Everybody does. So in my own mind, I couldn’t reconcile a narrative that makes those kinds of distinctions — and one that discounts an entire swath of Americans from the public land debate."

Our Man and the Father of the Nuclear Navy

Posted By on Tue, Dec 9, 2014 at 6:31 PM

Tonight — very late tonight — on PBS, you can watch the premiere of a film about Admiral Hyman G. Rickover — you know, the fella who built the first nuclear submarine, first nuclear aircraft carrier and first commercial nuclear power plant.

Why? Because you'll learn about a complex, brilliant, controversial person considered instrumental in ending the Cold War. But also because Humboldt resident and retired Navy Rear Adm. Dave Oliver is in the film. Oliver served under Rickover for much of his 32-year Navy career, and he wrote a book about him calledAgainst the Tide: Rickover’s Leadership Principles and the Rise of the Nuclear Navy. It came out in November.

  • Photo courtesy Jordan N. Fenster
  • Dave Oliver
Oliver also has rubbed elbows with the current presidential nominee for Secretary of Defense, Ashton Carter. As he tells BookTrib writer (and Oliver publicist) Jordan N. Fenster, he and “Ash” go back to the Clinton days when Oliver was Principal Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics for that administration:

“‘He was working on nuclear issues and I was worrying about the number of nuclear weapons in Russia,’ Oliver said. ‘We secretly smuggled 40 percent of the nuclear weapons in the world out of Kazakhstan.’”

There’s more to Oliver’s story than all that – go read up on your neighbor and his book.

The documentary premieres around dessert-time elsewhere in the country. Here in Humboldt, you insomniacs can catch it at 1 a.m. (so, technically, tomorrow) on KEET TV Channel 13. It airs again on Thursday Dec. 11 at 7 p.m.; Friday Dec. 12 at 1 a.m.; and Saturday Dec. 13 at 5 a.m. (Get up, lazy bones! Ya think Rickover slept in?)

Anchors Aweigh!

Posted By on Tue, Nov 18, 2014 at 4:15 PM

  • From Lindsay Housaman's Facebook Page.
The North Coast has a new TV news program. Back in spring the Journal caught wind that KRCR out of Redding was launching a news program to rival our local NBC affiliates at KIEM.

The news program, which debuted yesterday at 6 p.m., apparently (although they have web content dating back to Sunday), will air at 6 p.m. on KAEF ABC 23 and at 10 p.m. on KBVU Fox 28 — two of KRCR’s local sister stations.
  • Grant Scott-Goforth
The station came together in the downtown Eureka KAEF building under the guidance of assistant news director Lindsay Housaman, who will anchor the program. There are four reporters: Candase Chambers, Tyler Dahlgren, Katherine Harwood, and Nick Prete; and weatherman Mike Krueger.

The Journal hasn’t caught a broadcast of the program yet — if you saw the debut, tell us what you think.
