|Willow Creek circa 1960.|
Spence: "Quiet, relaxing, well-appointed rental cabins? Check. Warm, sunny weather? Check. Charming shop keepers? Check. River rafting, golfing, scenic mountain drives? Check. Scraggled layabout miscreants with dogs creeping from out of the woods ? Che.....oops. Civilization has come to town. What the rest of Humboldt County has been witnessing for a while, Willow Creek, always about five years behind the times, has it's eyes opened to the rest of the world. They say it all started with the introduction of cable-tv."
Kate: "If recent headlines were laid end to end, it would appear that there is more crime per square foot in Willow Creek than any other town in Humboldt County. It's always something these days for the tiny burg on the Trinity River--murder, kidnapping, and all-around skullduggery. Willow Creekians seem unruffled by it all...whaddya gonna do? Headlines only capture a moment in time, Willow Creek is timeless."
