Description: This documentary depicts a vivid example of America's actual culture war. It shows a rural community, Philomath, Oregon, that is making a huge transition from once being a dominant force through an "old time" profession, the timber industry, to one that is dominated by specialists and techies, the "information age". This is shown by the drastic decline of lumber mills in the area. In 1980, there were twelve mills around Philomath, but twenty-five years soon there were only two. The biggest employers are no longer the lumber mills but Oregon State University in Corvallis, which is about six miles from Philomath, and a Hewlett-Packard center involved in engineering ink-jet components.

The Haunted History of Halloween Reviews:

If you love history and HALLOWEEN, then this is the treat for you. You see how HALLOWEEN began 3,000 years ago, why we carve pumpkins, why kids wear costumes and trick-or-treat, how ghost stories started, etc. It shows how HALLOWEEN looked during the 40's and 50's! (Which is one of my favourite parts!) They even talk about the film, HALLOWEEN. They also present news archives about razor blades in apples, and Devil's Night. I love the HALLOWEEN decorations that they present soon in the movie. I highly suggest this HALLOWEEN treat if you love the holiday! They also present archive footage of HALLOWEEN during the 50's! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
