As the seasons transition, we are embracing new changes for OLLI at HSU. At the top of this page, you will notice a new college name. Our college has welcomed the Center for International Programs to join our team, alongside Extended Education and Academic Technology. Starting Sept. 11, OLLI will host our FREE Brown Bag Lunch Presentations at a new venue: the conference room at the beautiful Hospice of Humboldt campus. There is ample parking and seating for all who are interested. We hope you will bring a friend and join us.

Hours: Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Phone: (707) 826-5880 Fax: (707) 826-5885 SHEILA ROCKER HEPPE, DIRECTOR

Due to safety concerns and parking difficulties, OLLI at HSU will no longer be offering evening and Saturday classes at the Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center. These classes have been relocated to the Humboldt State University campus, where the parking is plentiful, lighting is good, and the police station is nearby. Members who register for these classes at least three days before the first meeting, will receive a free parking permit. Folks who register at the last minute will need to purchase a parking permit ($3.50).

In this catalog, you will find a new streamlined layout featuring an exciting collection of lifelong learning opportunities. Detailed biographies of all our faculty can now be found on the OLLI website (humboldt.edu/olli). Lastly, be looking for significant changes to the OLLI at HSU website this fall. We are in the process of launching a new, interactive website for our members, which we hope you will enjoy! Looking forward to learning, transforming and changing together,

McCrone Geology Series

Dam-nation or a River Wild? An Examination of Dams on the North Coast & Beyond

Dr. Alistair McCrone was the president of Humboldt State University from 1974 to 2002. His first academic appointment was professor for 11 years at New York University, where he served as chair of the geology dept. During this time Dr. McCrone was part of a weekly television program on CBS called “Sunrise Semester,” which promoted lifelong learning by bringing college lectures into people’s homes. Before coming to HSU, he was the academic vice president at the University of the Pacific. As a dedicated educator, leader and lifelong learner, President McCrone has made a special donation to OLLI at HSU to support courses and scholarships in the field of geology. This fall OLLI at HSU highlights these courses as part of the McCrone Geology Series.

Mary Ann Madej, Geomorphology Consultant What is the story behind the Oroville Dam fiasco? Why is there a proposal to remove four dams on the Klamath River? What does relicensing of dams on the Eel River entail? Hear the debate over Trinity River dam releases and possible diversions of Mad River water to locales outside of Humboldt County.

Explore tax-wise ways to support OLLI.

You can even give, then receive retirement income! Leave a legacy. OLLI at HSU is honored by people like Jerry and Gisela Rohde, who have included in their estate plans a Charitable Bequest contribution to OLLI at HSU. Often referred to as “remembering us in your will” or “leaving a legacy” — charitable bequests cost you nothing now, though they enable you to make a meaningful future gift to OLLI.

Want to help OLLI, but finances tight? Explore another option called a Charitable Gift Annuity — providing you with a lifetime income, tax benefits, and a future gift to OLLI at HSU. Enjoy more retirement now – a Charitable Gift Annuity is a simple contract between you and our charitable annuity program. You make a contribution, and we agree to pay you a guaranteed, fixed income for the rest of your life.

Not yet retired? You can create another type of charitable annuity called a Charitable Retirement Account that allows you to set aside assets today to generate an attractive, fixedincome when you retire. You may even save taxes now, with a one-time charitable income-tax deduction.

How does OLLI benefit? When your Charitable Gift Annuity or Charitable Retirement Account concludes, the remaining assets come to OLLI to keep it thriving into the future.

Accept a challenge. Last fall, Jerry and Gisela Rohde both established charitable gift annuities and encouraged other OLLI members to join them. Again this summer, the Rohdes have issued a challenge and will match other members in establishing charitable gift annuities up to $10,000. Join the challenge and increase your income.

Film / Music

Film Screening & Discussion: Don’t Look Now Michael Cooley, Movie Enthusiast Based on a Daphne du Maurier story, “Don’t Look Now” is not a Halloween slasher flick. Filmed in Venice, it’s a smart, artsy psychological thriller starring Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie. Directed by British filmmaker, Nicholas Roeg. (1973, color, 110 min) Tues., Oct. 31 • 6-9 p.m. HSU Campus: Harry Griffith Hall, rm. 117 $15 • Class #: 46642

Film Screening & Discussion: Targets

Just Sing

Michael Cooley, Movie Enthusiast

Carol Ryder, Artistic Director, Humboldt Light Opera

Film director Peter Bogdanovich’s first movie, Targets, is a campy, B-grade, Roger Corman thriller. It stars Boris Karloff as an over-the-hill horror movie star who finds himself in the sights of a serial killer. The film opens with a sneaky, uncredited appearance by Jack Nicholson. This is not a great film, but it is a lot of fun on several levels. (1968, color, 90 min)

Do you like to sing, but feel a tad rusty? This course is designed to teach easy vocal techniques to help you learn how to best use your “new” older voice. It is not necessary to have any music-reading skills or even a singing background. Mon., Oct. 9-Nov. 13 • 10:30 a.m.-noon Sunny Brae Performing Arts Center for Education, Studio A, Arcata $60 • Class #: 46630

We’ll also discuss the elements of storytelling. All levels of writing are welcomed.

Boomer+ Troupe Chorus

Senior Flash Mob

Carol Ryder, Artistic Director, Humboldt Light Opera

Cheryl Johnson, MA, Life Coach

Humboldt Light Opera Company is expanding the Boomer+ Troupe to include a chorus! Learn a program of fun and memorable music that will be performed at senior centers throughout the county in early December.

Flash mobs are public bursts of joyful dancing that surprise people. We will create a routine from easy, non-strenuous dance steps. Learning dance patterns is fantastic for brain plasticity, and “random acts of kindness” raise endorphin levels for givers and receivers. “Two left feet” folks are welcome, and no partners are needed. In the second session, we’ll polish the routine; then perform with costumes, for ourselves only, with chuckles and exercise. Cameras are encouraged. Let’s live a little!

Storytelling: How to Go Forward by Going Backwards

Writing Books for Children

Rima Greer, Literary Agent

Writing books for children is very different from other genres – since the audiences are kids and the publishers, buyers, and librarians are all adults. Discover the wide variety of styles and formats of current books, and pick up some useful writing and publishing tools. You’ll have a chance to write and edit short pieces, as well as get an overview of the publishing process. Bring a pen, a journal and their favorite children’s book.

Bring in your story idea, and learn to provide structure and style to achieve maximum emotional impact. Figure out how to grab your reader, and lead them exactly where you want them to go. Fri., Oct. 13 • 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center, Eureka $35 • Class #: 46637

Advanced Writing Workshop Bonnie Shand, Writer In this class, you’ll be free to write prose or poetry, and focus on short pieces related to a specific project or a suggested theme. You’ll be able to share your work and receive feedback in a safe environment. Bring one to two pages of writing to the first class. You must have previously taken the instructor’s introductory class, “Close to the Bone: Writing From the Inside Out,” and preferably, “Writing as a Spiritual Journey.” Or you must have creative writing experience and understanding of recurrence, language rhythm, image, metaphor and simile, creative tension and revision.

What Should a Health Care System Look Like?

Anxiety, Stress & Trauma: Alternative & Complementary Therapies

Michael Willett, MD

Roy King, Psychiatrist

The current political controversies about our health care system have focused on accessibility and who is paying the bill. However, there are many other parameters that require consideration such as what services should be covered, and where mental health is best addressed. The course will attempt to provide a review of some of these less obvious considerations and discuss some of the successes and problems of other health care systems around the world.

This course will review the physiological and neuro-scientific findings that support a wide range of alternative techniques for working with anxiety, including, nature walks, art therapy, massage, and yoga. We will also discuss the pros and cons for conventional medication treatment of the anxiety and stress disorders. Guest speakers will demonstrate each of the complementary techniques and present their medical bases.

OLLI Partners One of the top priorities of the HSU Strategic Plan Implementation is strengthening partnership with local communities. OLLI is grateful to collaborate with many local businesses, non-profit groups and governmental organizations. We greatly appreciate the support of lifelong learning in our community.

Hospice of Humboldt Founded in 1978 by a small group of volunteers, Hospice of Humboldt offers heartfelt end of life care and grief support services to all who need them in northern Humboldt County. Hospice of Humboldt is a stand-alone non-profit, not affiliated with any hospital or medical practice. It offers a full range of medical and supportive services provided by an interdisciplinary team. Team members collaborate with each other to design and continually modify a Plan of Care to meet the ongoing needs of each patient, his or her caregivers and families or friends. Hospice care is available to all, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. Patients of any age are accepted, and with any life threatening illness, including debility and dementia. Patients may receive care at home, in a residential care facility, or at a skilled nursing facility located within a 50 mile radius of the city of Eureka. Starting this fall, OLLI Brown Bag Lunch presentations will be held in the Hospice of Humboldt Conference Room. See pages 20-21.

Clarke Historical Museum The mission of the Clarke Historical Museum is the acquisition, preservation and educational display of​ objects relating to the history of Eureka and Humboldt County’s heritage. Founded by Eureka High School teacher Cecile Clarke, the museum has been housed in the landmark Bank of Eureka building since 1960. The Clarke Museum displays the rich history of Humboldt County, which includes Native American cultures, gold rush settlements, the lumber industry, ranching, farming and livelihoods wrung from the sea. Walking through period rooms and changing exhibits, visitors can glimpse Victorian elegance, remarkable craftsmanship, and everyday work, home, life and play from Humboldt County’s past.
