I'm the type of person that likes to get facts before I talk about this creature of 1962. After talking with a retired USFS man I now feel I might shed some light on why the government closed this file to the public. At the time of the discovery of the animal or whatever the government felt this was some kind of mutant human. It is and was routine to close these "unknown status" files. At the time of the storm in 62 the state of Oregon suffered massive damage to the western part of the state. This is why USFS contracted the clearing of many back roads out to private contractors. All contractors were given orders to report any fatalities to the nearest office of USFS or police. Also it was thought this creature may have been pregnant at the time of death so the government wanted to have a good exam of the body. In that year they did not have the medical facility in Oregon to do the autopsy on the creature as they did not know what this animal might have had as far as disease or viruses. All of the photos were suppose be be rounded up and sent with the body to Southern California. Only a few were not able to be found. The USFS man told me that many questions went unanswered by many inside the loop about this creature. He said This was not the first time they had seen this type of animal but still it was unknown to them what it actually was. He felt this and many other disturbing aspects of the animal was why it was never released to the public.
In 1969 my husband and I moved to Oregon. Before that I’d never heard of bigfoot. It wasn’t until TV programs started featuring the animal that I became curious. These programs were very clear that this animal may not exist at all. And so, I didn’t have an opinion. After my husband and I gave up our share of The North County News, I felt I still wanted to be a part of the paper, so I started my column on bigfoot, “A Matter of Time.” The column required much research to write it anew each week. I became convinced the animal exists.
My husband works full time and just has weekends to write and proof read our novels. Our second novel, Iron Hearts, is finished except for proofing and the battle scenes that my husband writes. Since I’m so far ahead of my husband in our writing, I began writing the children’s bigfoot books. And I started this blog. Thousands of blogs and web sites are started each day, so we feel very good about how successful this blog has become. I started the blog to advertise our novel and now the children’s books. We are happy to have had a part in getting the license suspension practice stopped. And now we look forward to Debbie of Rand Corp Group achieving her goal of getting the 1962 Columbus Day Storm file opened to the public.
Chris and I are first writers and second bigfoot believers. We have no other agenda, except to sell our books and provide a tool, the blog, to talk about this animal that we are all curious about and most believe exists.

Miss Questions has left a new comment on your post "Bigfoot spoken here!":
Do you believe when we get a good look at the file and photos this will prove the bigfoot case? What I mean is, will it be ample for science to admit we have another form of hominid out there? Or will they say maybe in 1962 there was only one of these things alive? Will they except the conclusions of the group of Dr's that will examine this file? Will we be closer to the answer we all want? Will the government actually admit they knew about bigfoot for many years and said nothing? These are some questions people will have when the file is opened.
Thank you for your participation. ...LP
