Halloween haunted house | Teen filmmaker Griffin Loch’s newest creation offers seasonal fun for the whole family

Local teenage filmmaker Griffin Loch is taking a short break from making movies this fall to pursue a longtime dream of opening a haunted house. “Last Halloween many events were unavailable (and) this was of great sadness to many,” Loch said. “My sister and I struggled on the 31st itself, missing the usual excitement. Although we carved pumpkins and dressed up, it felt very isolated. Creating a safe, temperature-checked, social distancing and mandatory mask event that still allowed a bit of the fall fun seemed an impossible task until we put our passions of haunts to work.”

(AUDIO) HUMBOLDT HOLDING UP: Duane Flatmo Says Goodbye to ‘El Pulpo Mecanico’ and Looks Back on His Life as a Muralist, Kinetic Sculpture Racer and Celebrity Elbow Rubber

Above: Duane Flatmo says goodbye to El Pulpo Mecanico. Sending your child off into the scary world when they reach the age of maturity brings with it mixed emotions. Oh, they grow up so fast, don’t they? Sure, you’re excited for them to go out and test their independent selves but it’s natural to worry, even when your offspring is a giant, flaming metal octopus. Did I raise them well enough to burn the world down out there without me?

Moderne Beauty

Living inside a movie theater is a fantasy many cinephiles have surely entertained, but few have indulged. George M. Mann, builder and original proprietor of the Eureka Theater, was one of the few. Mann worked from the 1920s through the 1940s to build a chain of movie theaters that would eventually span from Klamath Falls to Vacaville. The Eureka Theater, largest and grandest of the houses he built, was also — unbeknownst to most — the site Mann chose for his private residence.

Trinidad gallery showcases two artists

The Trinidad Art Gallery is featuring the work of two artists, Loryn White, experimental ceramicist, and Patricia Sundgren-Smith, printmaker, this month. Since 1995, Sundgren-Smith has been designing, carving and printing linocuts, relief blocks made from linoleum. The process is similar to woodblock printing, using a material called Silk Cut, which is easier to carve than linoleum and sturdier under the pressure of printing.

As It Was, So Shall It Be

On Oct. 1 and 2, the Eureka Symphony opened its 30th anniversary season at the Arkley Center for the Performing Arts with a program that was aptly titled "Re-Emergence." I was there, at my first large indoor concert after the longest break in indoor concerts I have experienced since I can remember. It wasn't an easy decision. I have, like a lot of you, I am sure, watched and experienced the pandemic desolation that has come in the wake of large public events. However, the draw that clinched it for me was the very necessary and correct measures the organizers took to assure the safety of the public: Vaccination cards and masks were required. Talking to some of the friendly staff in the lobby before the show, I was told there were no issues among the patrons with these rules and the only thing even approaching drama was when one concert-goer had to return to their vehicle to retrieve their vax card, which they did without complaint. My first glimmer of hope that evening was the revelation that, despite what the media, online comment sections, and a deeply stupid protest outside of a local hospital with an at-capacity ICU were all telling me, there are still quite a lot of reasonable adults in our community. As reckless as I can be with my own private life and celebratory habits, I am still pulling for the social contract, public safety and an appreciation of consensus reality. Seeing how polite and normal everyone — both staff and the public — was behaving in the face of such abnormal conditions did a lot to raise my spirits and make me feel comfortable about doing something from the maskless old days.
