Regarding: "DMV Owns Up-Perchance?":
Did anybody really listen to what the DMV man said? He said the FHA is stepping in on all the states that are using the False Report Law for suspensions. He said Oregon will NO LONGER use the practice. Yes the woman is suing but that's not what made them change their mind.
I think this blog has done a great service to people as to getting this nasty thing out there to the public. Linda has wrote articles in the paper in which people found out about it and then told their friends ECT: Maybe their is some justice in the world!
Yes it is great news. Thank you for your comment....Linda Newton-Perry

Regarding: radio show and license suspension
It was broadcasted on KMX radio. It's a Radio show called Jay in the morning. The guest was A Sup from DMV. Public radio station KMX will re play the show at 5:45pm. It was a show on a suit that has been brought against Oregon by a Peggy Huston of The Dalles. She had her ODL suspended in 2007 for reporting a bigfoot near Sisters Oregon. She is suing for financial damage and emotional stress. Apparently the DMV is stopping the suspension practice as of Mon 3-1-2010. She filed the suit in 2008 and they want to settle with her.
Thank you. Is that tomorrow evening at 5:45 or in the morning at 5:45 am? ...Linda Newton-Perry

Regarding: License suspension and bigfoot sighting
The Department of Motor Vehicles today told a Salem Radio host that the DMV indeed may have unjustly suspended several peoples licenses to drive after reporting a legondary animal or bigfoot/saquatch. The caller was a current supervisor for DMV in Oregon.
"In some instances we have looked back and found problems with some decisions we have handed down. We will look at all the decisions over the last 10 years and make some kind of compensation to the people if the investigation shows they were wrongly suspended."
He admitted they may have given false information out to people who have inquired into the suspensions of Oregon drivers licenses. KNX/radio/talkinthe morning/house/dmv,org

Regarding: Above post
Now listen Anon. The DMV guy did not say they have, he said they may have. He said the DMV might compensate the drivers for medical and other trouble. He really split the hairs there. He never really admitted anything other than apparently there has been some wrong doing by the agency. Sometimes the devils in the detailed, Anon.
Thank you both for your comments. This is indeed good news to those that have lost their licenses. Please keep us informed. ... Linda Newton-Perry

Regarding: "...missing a major point...!"
This is regarding the Snellgrove Lake DNA highlighted on the History Channel:
Long story short:
Dr. Curt Nelson, biologist from the University of Minnesota and anthropologist Dr. Jeff Meldrum, from the University of Idaho arrived on the scene with camera crew in tow to inspect the outline of a bloody footprint on the “screw board” and of course, collect from it, small portions of foot tissue and blood for DNA sequencing. Blood, tissue and hair were found.
The line on the board shows group of screws with marks of blood.
Mitochondrial is the most accurate method known for species identification and it should be able to determine if a hair sample is that of a man or nonhuman primate. The hair sample looked human, (uncut) but human hair has a medulla, a spongy mass of material in the center of the hair’s core. Hair presumptive for Sasquatch looked human but did not have a medulla; the hair sample matched no known primate and no animal known to science, certainly not bear according to the program. This alone is not new to research.
They were able to extract DNA from the tissue found on the threaded bloody screws and found it was identical to human DNA, except it had one nucleotide polymorphism .....that nucleotide that was different, it was one shared with chimpanzees. They were able to extract DNA; it was primate DNA; they knew they were looking at the DNA structure of a sasquatch. The DNA said ‘primate’ but not quite human and not quite non-human primate... just one of the base pairs is deviated from ours!
