College of the Redwoods will present a performance by visiting writer Taylor Mali on Friday, Sept. 19 at the CR Performing Arts Theater. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the reading will begin at 7:00 p.m. There is a suggested donation of $5.00 for students (with student ID) and $10.00 for general admission.
Taylor Mali is one of the most well-known poets to have emerged from the poetry slam movement and one of the few people in the world to have no job other than that of poet. The Taylor Mali style is an incandescent mix of the belly laugh and the quiet hush of subtle insight. The New York Times says "Taylor Mali is a ranting comic showman and literary provocateur…"

"Southern California Seafoods offloaded about 280,000 pounds last night and we expect to do more than that each night."
-- Jeff Huffman, Eureka Dock Manager, Wild Planet
Huffman said the squid haul was so substantial that they had trouble locating adequate transportation and ice, and are bringing in ice from Crescent City. Huffman said the squid boats would be in Humboldt for two to three weeks.
Get down to the docks and get a whiff.
