Announcement: Bigfoot Ballyhoo has been under attack, in the past, by a couple of people who wished Ballyhoo and its editors to look as if they were hoaxing information.
One of the biggest examples would be the claim that we made up the ESP Team, Bill Emery, Cole Saxton and the late Hank Parchell. A well-known bigfoot researcher found photos that looked like Emery, Saxton and Parchell. He claimed the three to be the real men and not any part of the ESP Team. (In fact, he claimed there was no ESP Team).
And then while the Emery Team was processing trail cam photos a couple were sent to Ballyhoo. These photos turned out to be well-known bigfoot photos, one from a movie and one of Patty. The technician’s son that was processing the trail cam photos replaced the real photos with fakes. In good faith Emery sent the dallied-with photos to Ballyhoo. When it was found out what happened it was explained.
Another photo of a footprint with a believable history was given Ballyhoo to post. Turned out to be Tim Fasano’s photo from Florida. Again, we’ve given explanations for each occurrence. We were hoaxed.
We in time recognized each hoax and explained what happened
What is one to believe about the “talk” of two bigfoots being killed? Most of the “talk” boils down to this: If the killings are true, then it’s an outrage. In my opinion, a killing in self-defense shouldn’t be thought of as an outrage.We have a right to protect ourselves. And, of course, if the body is turned over to science, the animal could be stamped once and for all as “real.” If the killings are true, we should in time hear about them from reliable sources.
Eleven months have now passed since the ESP Team, now ESPO Team, snapped photos of a bigfoot they’ve named Big Clyde. The months are just flying by. It seems I just mentioned in this column that it had been ten months since Clyde’s debut. I’ve had several comments on Ballyhoo, our online bigfoot magazine, wondering why I don’t just quit mentioning the team. I can’t do that. Why? The moment the news is out on the Team’s discovery, I and Ballyhoo will be vindicated. If you have been a reader of Bigfoot Ballyhoo, www.bigfootballyhoo.blogspot.com, you know what’s been going on. I’ve been called a liar, a fabricator of stories, and worse. I’m proud to live my life by strict moral standards. It pains me when this is not recognized. But, alas, that is life. But, that is also why I keep reminding the readers of the paper and Ballyhoo of the anniversary date each month of the Team’s Big Clyde Adventure.
That said, I would like to address the ESPO Team: I and my husband, Christopher, would still like to see those photos. It would be great if we could view them on the one-year anniversary. Please get back to me. We would be happy to travel to where ever you wish for a meeting.
The farmer’s Market booth went well. The ones that engaged me in conversation were bigfoot believers. The booth is well-marked.I intend to use my time at the booth, each week, to “talk bigfoot” and gather information for Ballyhoo and this newspaper column. So please stop by for a chat at the Book’s Gallery, Sutherlin, Oregon, parking lot Wednesday . Do you have an idea for a booth? The space is free. Ask at any booth for information. See you there, and until next week, bye. Linda Newton-Perry
I write along with my husband Christopher Perry. We are the authors of a Viking Age Novel, Forced Blood The Norseman and several bigfoot children's books. I author the blog Bigfoot Ballyhoo. I'm a bigfoot believer and I hope the animal will be "found" soon.
Linda and Chris, we had great success last night and early this morning. Bigfoot came within 25 feet of me and Hank. We put out salt licks last night to see if the animal would try to take it and he did. I am enclosing a snap of #6 camera. DO NOT put it on the site yet. We don’t want another thing like last week. You may tell your readers of it though. All together we got 4 shots. They will have to all be enhanced but we believe all are very good. This shot was at 6 AM, Sunday Aug. 8, 2010. The image in the background is an old rotten cedar stump. Thanks for your support!
