Running Away & Crazy Baldhead - Santa Barbara...
Stafford (formerly, Brown's Mill and Brown's Camp) is an unincorporated community in Humboldt County is a county in the U.S. state of California..An attraction in the area was the Stafford Inn, a converted bunk house from Brown's mill.. The inn was destroyed in a flood in 1964..As of the 2010 census, the population was 134,623.. The county seat is Eureka..Its primary population centers of Eureka, the site of College of the Redwoods main campus, and the smaller college town of Arcata, site of Humboldt State University, are located adjacent to Humboldt Bay, California's second largest natural bay.. Area cities and towns are known for hundreds of ornate examples of Victorian architecture..The county contains over forty percent of all remaining old growth Coast Redwood forests..On February 5/6, 1885, Eureka's entire Chinese population of 300 men and 20 women were expelled after a gunfight between rival Chinese gangs (tongs) resulted in the wounding of a 12-year-old boy and the death of 56-year-old David Kendall, a Eureka City Councilman.. After the shooting, an angry mob of 600 Eureka residents met and informed the Chinese that they were no longer wanted in Eureka and would be hanged if they were to stay in town longer than 3 p.m. the next day.. They were put on two steamships and shipped to San Francisco..The shipment would not be treated any differently from ordinary purchases of scrap, and would be turned into steel plates..

Rockefeller Forest..

Humboldt Redwoods State Park is a state park of California, US, containing Rockefeller Forest, the world's largest remaining contiguous old-growth forest of coast redwoods.. It is located 30 miles (48 km) south of Eureka, California, near Weott in southern Humboldt County, within Northern California. It was established by the Save-the-Redwoods League in 1921 largely from lands purchased from the Pacific Lumber Company.. Beginning with the dedication of the Raynal Bolling Memorial Grove, it has grown to become the third-largest park in the California State Park system, now containing 51,651 acres (20,902 ha) through acquisitions and gifts to the state..Nearby U.S. Route 101, which generally follows the Eel River and its South Fork in this part of the North Coast, offers easy access to the park and nearby towns with connections to the scenic highway, Avenue of the Giants, also mostly located within or near park boundaries..Historically, Humboldt County and the entire far north coast have had many earthquakes over 6.0 magnitude..The 92 Cape Mendocino EQ's were a series of 3 major earthquakes that occurred off the coast of Cape Mendocino, California on April 25 and 26, 1992, the largest being a 7.2.. Ninety-five people were injured and property in the county sustained considerable damage..In 2010 a 6.5 magnitude EQ struck offshore, 33 mi. (53 km) west of Eureka, resulting in only minor injuries and some structural damage to houses and utilities, and no fatalities reported..Two 33,000-ton consignments have already arrived in the southern port of Madras, a third is on its way and a fourth would arrive soon at the west coast port of Kandla...

Bald Hills War (1858–1864) was a war fought by the forces of the California Militia, Volunteers and soldiers of the U. S. Army against the Chilula, Lassik, Hupa, Mattole, Nongatl, Sinkyone, Tsnungwe, Wailaki, Whilkut and Wiyot Native American peoples.. During the American Civil War, Army reorganization created the Department of the Pacific on 15 January 1861, and on 12 December 1861, the Humboldt Military District, which was formed to organize the effort to pacify the hostile Indians and protect the peaceful ones from the encroachment of the American settlers..The district was headquartered at Fort Humboldt, which is now a California State Historic Park located within the City of Eureka..The District's efforts were directed at waging the ongoing Bald Hills War against the Indians in those counties..There were several causes of the Bald Hills War.. The most important was the disruptive effect of commercial hunting and grazing on food plants by the herds of the settlers cattle and pigs..Hundreds of deer and elk were killed by parties of hunters for their hides, used for gloves in the gold mines..The original inhabitants of the area were the Sinkyone..,_California've worked out a few statistics of my own..15 billion dollars in gold bullion weighs 10,500 tons..Sixty men would take twelve days to load it onto 200 trucks.. Now, at the most, you're going to have 2 hours before the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines move in and make you put it back..Shocking! Positively shocking!..
