On Artwaves:  A humorous yet interestingly philosophical take on Henrik Ibsen’s classic play Hedda Gabler. Jeff Whitty’s The Further Adventures of Hedda Gabler turns it around for Hedda with fellow fictional characters from all media and time periods musing on what it would be like to actually be “forgotten,” and the play is on stage through July 28 at Redwood Curtain in Eureka.

The Arcata City Council, minus Mayor Sofia Pereira, voted 4-0 to put the issue of the Mckinley statue on this year's November ballot. Their vote reverses an earlier decision to remove the statue, which was made in February this year.

The statue stands in the center of town and has divided many community members--some who see McKinley as a symbol for racist imperialism and others who see him as an American hero. Those mostly in favor of keeping the statue, led efforts to gather enough signatures to put the decision up to a citizen vote in the upcoming election.

Three decades after Oregon blazed a trail by enacting statewide sanctuary laws, voters will have a say in repealing them this fall.
