Newspaper Column "Bigfoot: A Matter of Time"
Last week on Bigfoot Ballyhoo (www.bigfootballyhoo.blogspot.com) we asked if anyone had heard news of the limping bigfoot in the Scottsburg, Elkton areas (Oregon).
A reader wrote that the animal had not been seen for quite some time. The consensus is the animal is dead or has moved on. Actually, there were rumors that the animal may have been hit by a vehicle near the Loon Lake turnoff. A body was searched for, but never found. If you’ve heard anything, please do comment on Ballyhoo or write a letter to P.O. Box 334, Sutherlin, Oregon, 97479.
If you follow Bigfoot Ballyhoo, you know that we are launching a series of books with the topic: searching for bigfoot. We’ve invited our readers to share in the adventure and have their work published in one of the books. To begin with, the books will be by season. June, 2012, will be the first and the summer book. The books should be available to order by September.
So, if you would like to take part and possibly be included in the book, registering is a must. Email the Perrys at firstname.lastname@example.org. A name must be included. The photos you submit must be no larger than 4x6, great quality and captioned. We look forward to hearing from you.
(You are invited as well, if you are a reader of this newspaper column and do not have Internet access, simply write a letter stating that you’d like to be part of the book. See address above.)
I stated I would not write more about the ESP Team unless I got new information. I did receive a post on Ballyhoo by a person that knows Bill Emery. It seemed believable. So I allowed the post. I did withdraw my request for a meeting with Emery because of the peculiarities and dangers associated with the Internet. (It is difficult to trust anyone since “Anonymous” often is a real bad guy!)
I wish to thank the readers of this newspaper column and Ballyhoo, especially those that post positive comments.
We at Ballyhoo are simply bigfoot enthusiasts and writers. We look forward to the day that bigfoot will be proclaimed by science as a real animal. What fun that will be. Those that use the forest for recreation will know to watch for the animal. Who knows, maybe it will lead to some great photos. And, of course, information should be available on how we are to react when we see one of these amazing beings. What do you think? Until next week, Linda Newton-Perry and Christopher Perry
