Feb. 11, 2011, was an important date for Bigfoot Ballyhoo, the online bigfoot magazine affiliated with this column. Bigfoot Ballyhoo is dedicated to Dale Saxton. Feb.11th was the one year anniversary of his death. Saxton’s widow, Marsha Saxton, sent this comment to Ballyhoo on Jan. 11: “This last year has been strange living without Dale. One never knows how much they depend on their spouse until they're gone. Dale loved the outdoors and his family and friends. Bill [Emery] has carried on Dale's search for the answers on bigfoot. He has helped my son cope with the loss of his dad and friend. My family hopes that bigfoot will be common knowledge some day soon. I'm frankly at a loss of words for the recent attacks on my family and friends over the bigfoot. Linda, you have been wonderful in your support for Dale's search and comments on bigfoot. From my family to Ballyhoo and the Perrys, we thank you for a place to speak without fear.”
We are still awaiting word from the ESP Team. In order for Bigfoot Ballyhoo to continue without the “cloud of doubt” hovering over its every word, we need to substantiate for the doubters that this team, indeed, exists. Have you an idea of how we can do this? Friday, Feb. 11, was two weeks since Ballyhoo stopped publishing. It is obvious, by now, that the team feels that they can not speak up in their defense. Whatever their reason or reasons, we respect that choice. We would, however, like to remind them that we have defended the team in an all out “Killing Blitz.” One reader of Ballyhoo told us that he had sent the fellow who believes every word of Ballyhoo is a lie, a recent photo of Bill Emery. And so he knows for a fact that the naysayer knows that Bill Emery exists. So, friends, any help will be appreciated. You may send recent photos of any one of the team to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. As you know I will not put them on the blog, but I need them for a hardcopy-compilation of proof.
I’ve started adding videos to youtube and I’ve a myspace page. So, check them out and leave a comment. Comments are still being allowed on Ballyhoo. Has anyone thought of starting a Douglas County Bigfoot Club? Let me know and I’ll be at the first meeting, if at all possible. (Local, Douglas County, only.)
Until next week, Linda Newton-Perry
The following is the Letter to the Editor that I sent to the Coquille Valley Sentinel, Jean Ivey.
Dear Editor: I'm the editor/owner of the online magazine Bigfoot Ballyhoo. I've stopped publishing until I can get some information on Bill Emery, Cole Saxton and Hank Parchell. It has been claimed that I've made up this team of men known as the ESP Team. Bill Emery is a business owner and lives in XXXXXXX, Oregon. I do not wish to invade their privacy, but if you know any of these men and can share proof, photos, newspaper articles, etc. it would be greatly appreciated. I know this is a strange request, but the Internet is a "strange land!" Thank you, Linda Newton-Perry of Bigfoot Ballyhoo and the newspaper column, "A Matter of Time."
