An exploding whale, a couple shockingly scary cults, a 19th-century serial killer, several very naughty ladies, a handful of solid-brass con artists and some of the dumbest bad guys in the history of the universe. From the archives of the Offbeat Oregon History syndicated newspap ...
 
Welcome! You've reached the home of the Arcade Castle Podcast, a podcast that looks a little at video games, a little at board games, and those things that got a little bit of both. While most podcasts tend to look at the latest and greatest, we have opted for a far darker path through the sprawling realms of digital and analog games. For lying between these two genres is a pile of games few dare to play, games that often defy categorization. Bizarre chimeric creations and licensed games abo ...

Christy Turner is an expert on dementia, a frequent speaker, and a dementia consultant. In fact, they call her the Dementia Sherpa. So this week, we discussed how the disease of dementia affects the brain -- it is much more than memory loss. Christy explained how families can work with a loved one who has dementia. She shared tips on how to make it…
 
In the summer of 1970, a man named Dave Panebaker got a job as a seasonal ranger at Crater Lake. Over that summer, he heard about an interesting but little known sight in the park: A dark-blue Grumman F6F Hellcat fighter that had crashed there a month or two after World War II ended.The old Navy fighter had hit hard, and everyone assumed the pilot …
 
Mostly, Mrs. Whitlock was just frustrated. She had rented a room in her boardinghouse to a trio of rough characters, who had gone through her stuff and stolen $60 worth of goods. She’d been trying to get a policeman to come see her about the theft since early that afternoon, without success. She’d tried to reach District Attorney George Chamberlain…
 
The sailors, clinging as best they could to the shattered lifeboat — which still floated, thanks to its air compartments — worked their way around the ship and let the breakers carry them toward the beach. Two men had been killed outright, crushed against their ship’s iron hull, and four more — including William Begg — received injuries ranging fro…
 
R. Thomas Dickerson, after gunning down the chief witness in his wife's upcoming suit for divorce, clearly expected the jury to buy his claim that the man was a “home-wrecker” and deserved what he got. He miscalculated. (Portland, Multnomah County; 1909) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeatoregon.com/1510a.dickerson-UnLaw.html)…
 
One of America's first known serial killers, Earle Leonard Nelson preyed on landladies, killing them while they were showing him real estate. By the time he was hanged, he'd slain at least 21 women — including four in Portland. (Portland,Multnomah County; 1926) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeatoregon.com/1309d-dark-strangler-earle-nelson.h…
 
“Professor” Ray V.B. Jackson just happened to be on hand, playing the role of helpful witness, at almost every high-profile murder scene in Lake and Harney counties. What were the odds? (Lake and Harney counties, 1910s) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeatoregon.com/o1109b-ray-jackson-central-oregons-angel-of-death.html)…
 
In Episode 21 of the Arcade Castle, John Finds himself separated from Patrick by the Bacterian Empire and the robotic foot soldiers from Berzerk, both of which seem to be allied with the computer virus Omnicron. Taking refuge in a 'Human Storage Facility' on one of the Bacterian Flagships, John chances upon his old friend and now pressganged janito…
 
It's hard to believe, but in 1902 the school district put a convicted felon, fresh from serving hard time at the state pen, in charge of its grade-school kids. But the forgery and robbery he was convicted of may have been the least of his crimes. (Silver Lake, Lake County; 1902) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeatoregon.com/o1109a-silver-lak…
 
A Linn County case with a strong element of self-defense, and a Malheur County child-abuse travesty that ended with a shotgun blast, were called Unwritten Law triumphs in the newspapers — but there were differences. (Linn and Malheur counties; 1908) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeatoregon.com/1509d.powell-n-brown-UnLaw.html)…
 
They found the grizzled prospector’s body slumped over a sample of ore on the floor of the rude log cabin he’d been staying in, deep in the wilderness of southern Oregon, late in the spring of 1897. He’d apparently dropped dead one evening while assaying out the samples he’d gathered that day – probably poisoned by some of the chemicals he was usin…
 
Despite the best efforts of an overzealous federal marshal, the whole episode ended in nothing more than a stern lecture from the bench for 424 unemployed members of “Coxey's Army,” who tried to “borrow” an eastbound train. (Portland and points east, Multnomah County; 1894) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeatoregon.com/1309b-coxeys-armys-mar…
 
This week on Aging in the Willamette Valley, I interviewed Peter LeBray, an expert on geriatric psychology and gerontology, two areas of interest to those of us who are aging. Dr. LeBray, who is a consulting Geriatric Psychologist, visited John and Presley to share his views on aging. We discussed the history and evolution of Geriatric Psychology a…
 
Stock theatre is something most Americans today know little about. It still exists; but it’s a faded and impoverished ghost of what it was at the turn of the 20th century. It’s something of a niche art form, patronized by a small but enthusiastic cohort that tends to pride itself (not without reason) on its cultural refinement.But in 1901, when Geo…
 
The “good guy” was a petty swindler. The “wronged woman” was a prostitute and bigamist. And the “innocent victim” was a serial philanderer who neglected his wife and kids to the point of starvation. By the time the “bad guy” was caught, Portland just wanted to forget the whole thing. (Portland, Multnomah County; 1908) (For text and pictures, see ht…
 
What started out looking like a clean-cut morality play, with a hero, a villain, an innocent victim and a bereaved widow, quickly turned into a tale of remarkable sordidness as the truth slowly emerged. (Portland, Multnomah County; 1909) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeatoregon.com/1509b.bradley-gittings-part1-UnLaw-356.html)…

Fourth-grader Dorothy Anne Hobson decided her tiny timber town needed a newspaper, so she launched the Valsetz Star.

(Valsetz, Polk County; 1937) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeatoregon.com/1309a-valsetz-star-and-dorothy-hobson.html)…
 
The editors and writers of The Firebrand, published in Portland and distributed nationwide from 1895 to 1897, surely expected to get some resistance from the establishment. They may even have expected to be arrested, possibly even charged with sedition or treason. But they surely didn’t expect that when their publication was shut down, it would be …
 
This week’s guest is Pastor Ralph Trask, Senior Pastor of Fellowship Church. He helps us explore the connection between spirituality and aging, and the effect spirituality has on our overall well-being as we age. And, in this context, we discuss the difference between spirituality and religion. In our conversation, we recognize that many people hav…
 
After injuries to her knee, ankle and heart, she needed to get away from show business and from an ex-boyfriend. So she retreated to the high desert near Brothers, and became a homesteader ... and looked fabulous doing it.

These three desperados couldn't seem to catch a break. First they robbed the wrong train; then it turned out to contain a dangerously competent lawman behind a big six-shooter; and finally, someone stole their getaway car. (Blue Mountains, Umatilla County; 1914) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeatoregon.com/1309c-meadors-gang-train-robbery.h…
 
The little logging-company town, owned by the Shevlin-Hixon Company of Bend, was fully portable. When the timber was all gone from an area, the company simply loaded the houses on railroad flatcars and moved on. (Shevlin, Deschutes and Klamath counties; 1930s-1940s) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeatoregon.com/1308d-shevlin-oregons-wanderin…
 
On November 4, 1885, a 27-year-old man was strolling down an Albany street with a pretty 20-year-old brunette woman. He was wearing a disguise — fake mustache and sideburns, a heavy overcoat. He had introduced himself to the woman as “J. Blankhead.” And somehow, he expected her to be fooled by all this.She was not. She’d recognized him immediately …
 
Have you heard about neuroplasticity? It’s the regenerative capacity of the human brain that gives it the power to learn and improve in response to a stroke or injury. You can lose connections in your brain, but it can repair itself! This week, Mike Studer, President, and Owner of Northwest Rehabilitation Associates join us to explain how this work…
 
Few people know a small whaling venture was launched in Astoria in 1961 — seeking whale oil for the space program and whale meat to feed to hungry minks. (Warrenton, Clatsop County; 1961) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeatoregon.com/o1108a2-astoria-whaling-operation-was-helping-with-space-program.html)…
 
UNWRITTEN LAW FILES, Episode 1: Orlando Murray's trial had something for everyone: Sex, revenge, vigilante action, a Fallen Woman, drunkenness, hysteria, the insane asylum, and even lawyers getting in fistfights. Was it any wonder his sister's ex-boyfriend balked at the idea of marrying into the Murray family? (Portland, Multnomah County; 1906) (Fo…
 
Leaving the bloody ax there beside the still-burning fire, the two drove the stolen horses down toward the valley, where they hoped to sell them. Along the way they met several people, who commented on the smoke and wondered if they knew about it. It was finally beginning to dawn on them that, when their victim’s disappearance was remarked, they wo…
 
Lulu Reynolds was having a torrid affair with her music teacher. Her husband was an ex-Cavalry scout who carried a .38 in his jacket pocket. It wasn't the kind of thing that usually ends well. It didn't. (Portland, Multnomah County; 1907) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeatoregon.com/1308c-reynolds-love-triangle-kissing-the-corpse.html)…
 
Charles Fiester really, really didn’t want to die. Fair enough; most of us don’t. His wife, Nancy, hadn’t wanted to die either; but she’d been trying to leave their 30-year marriage and had taken up with another man, a Mr. Mudd. And, well, one thing had led to another and the next thing anyone knew Fiester was dragging her by the hair to a mud pudd…

When the treacherous bar claimed a fully-loaded whaling ship, its owner chalked it up as a very expensive lesson learned, and gave up on its plan to hunt whales out of the Oregon seaport. (Columbia River Bar, Clatsop County; 1848) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeatoregon.com/o1108a1-shipwreck-ends-astorias-bid-to-be-nantucket-of-west-coast.…
 
For a couple decades around the turn of the last century, if a murderer could convince a jury that his victim had been a “home-wrecker,” he could expect to be not only acquitted, but lionized as a brave and noble domestic hero. (Statewide, 1890s) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeatoregon.com/1508d.unwritten-law-353.html)…
 
Stranded four-masted schooner North Bend crossed Peacock Spit and, a little over a year later, launched itself in Baker Bay on the other side in the late 1920s. If you've ever visited the Ripley's Believe it or Not in Newport, you may recognize this story ... (Peacock Spit, Clatsop County (sort of); 1928) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeato…
 
Is it possible that the city of Quivira was, at one time, real? Did it stand there, on the edge of a little bay just north of Cape Blanco, thriving around the time Rome fell? And did something then happen — perhaps the 300-year Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake and tsunami — to close off the mouth of its bay and crush its walls into heaps of rubb…
