E.T. the Extra Terrestrial's Del Norte home

For Roslyn and Gary Goodrich, encounters with movie stars were once common.

She hung out in Hollywood as a teenager. And as a police officer in Marina del Rey, he ran into Robert Wagner, James Garner and other actors whose boats were moored there. But when they moved to Del Norte to escape the LA traffic in 1980, the Goodriches never dreamed Tinseltown would find them a year later.

“I was good friends with the owner of Saxton’s Tackle Shop and he had some kind of communication with this film crew,” said Gary Goodrich, who was working as Smith River’s resident sheriff’s deputy at the time. “He told me this outfit was interested in finding a place and hiring security, so I did security for the film crew and hired a bunch of deputy and Crescent City PD officers to do 24-hour security.”

The Accidental Family: My Stay at an unsafe foster home

Editor’s note: The Accidental Family is a column about the story of two young women and the Del Norte family that adopted them. This installment is written by Lydia-Leonard Rhodes, 17, who is an English major at Humboldt State University.

In the last “Accidental Family” column I wrote (“My search for a safe home,” April 7, 2015) I talked briefly about a foster home I was placed in before I found my wonderful family. I mentioned that this home had many of its own horrors but that that story was for a different time. 

I previously refrained from writing about my last foster home because I did not want to expose anyone. But in order to create change we sometimes have to expose people.

Church Notebook: Pride goeth before a fall... be prepared

“Help! I've fallen and I can't get up.”

How many times have we seen that ad on TV, and perhaps even chuckled at the obvious acting involved?

Plant a tree for tomorrow

The saplings Dan Burgess brought to the banks of Mill Creek weren’t more than two feet tall, but he and 55 elementary school students knew they would eventually help the salmon and steelhead that return to the watershed to spawn.

“We want this tree to grow big enough so when it falls over it can fall over into the creek,” Burgess told a group of third, fourth and fifth-graders from Bess Maxwell Elementary School on Tuesday. “What happens when big trees fall into the creek?”

The answer: 26, 25, 23, 17, 22 and 22. The question? What are the winning Superlotto numbers? Perhaps, but unlikely. Actually, it’s the number of years each of the women have been cutting hair at Turning Heads Beauty Salon in Crescent City.

Antique show looking for participants in Calfornia

Creators of the antique archeology show, American Pickers, are searching for interesting people with lots of interesting items. They will be in California in March.

American Pickers, which airs on the History Channel, follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz and explores the world of antique “picking.” Hitting back roads from coast to coast, Wolfe and Fritz comb junkyards, basements, garages and barns for unique items. 

According to the show’s creators, some of the items Wolfe and Fritz are hoping to buy include tin, wind-up and cast iron toys, pre-50s vending machines, pinball and slot machines, old movie posters, vintage movie memorabilia, vintage advertising items, taxidermy, pre-60s vintage diner collectibles, pre-60’s TV merchandise, mobster memorabilia, Civil War antiques and more. 

Wolfe and Fritz only pick from private collections, so no stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public. 

Folks hoping to be considered for American Pickers should e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it or leave a message at 1-855-653-7878. Messages should include a name, contact number and description of your items.
