Just a little art work until a sighting comes in.

Bigfoot program tonight.


Hope you plan to watch the program, "Strange Days with Bob Saget" tonight, Nov. 30, 2010. It's about bigfoot and should be funny. 10:30 EST on  A&E cable network.

____________
I watched the show and enjoyed. ... LNP

SHARE, WE TALK "BIGFOOT HERE"

Thank you, Bandon Gal





When you put this appeal online, I went to the Coquille Sentinel and talked with Jean. I showed her the source of the allegations against you by SQUATCHCOP and we both had a good laugh. She realizes he is trying to use Ballyhoo for his own popularity. She will not believe or report any such allegations in her paper. She also said she knows the Perrys and will never believe such "HOGWASH."


____________

Again, thank you for your time and effort. I knew, of course, that Jean would not believe any of this. It's just the idea that I'm having my (our, my husband's and I's) good name sullied and that for absolutely no good reason. ... LNP

Hmmm...

What do you think she is saying to bigfoot?  

To Mr. JC Adams:

Mr. Adams, I thank you for your comment. I would like to know who you are. Are you a lawyer? Or are you from Kull's camp just hoping I will put your comment on so he will have more material to supposedly use against me. ... Please answer. ... LNP

____________
Mr. Adams replies:

No I am a retired administrative law judge for Social Security Admin. I have listened to both sides of claims for this and that for many years.
____________

Thank you for your reply. ... LNP

____________
This is Mr. JC Adams' original comment:

I have done an impartial look at Ballyhoo and squatch d and find absolutely no indications where Linda Perry has used this blog for anything inappropriate. I also looked at the site squatch d and find many errors with his take on this blog. One thing should be noted, Mr. Kulls is not a licensed investigator. He claims to have been one in the past. There is no record of a Steve Kulls from 1985 or up. His mystical license does not exist under the name Kulls.

 He is and has been using Ballyhoo for his own gain and popularity. The amount of claims made by Mr. Kulls is not well thought through and slanderous. Without some kind of physical proof he has made claims Mrs. Perry is the sole person responsible for all comments on Ballyhoo. This in itself is idiotic. I have found the comments came from real believers in what they saw.

Bigfoot Dreams

NOT TO WORRY

This blog is  not faltering. So don't worry. I just once in a while feel I should voice my opinion. We still get several comments a day, but I can't let you see them for a couple of reasons. I wish for this blog to be positive and will share with you only positive comments, depending on how I'm thinking on any particular day. I know I've said I'll let all sides of an issue be heard. I will.  The comment, however,  must be written in a decent manner. ... LNP

Second Chapter of the book EYE OF THE BEAST. Enjoy.




After the phone call, the whole family, including Beth, enjoyed a lively conversation on the subject of Bigfoot. Beth Clark was invited and stayed for dinner. They sat now at the large oval dining room table in the Bandwilly’s casual dining room, mouth-watering cooking smells thick in the air. In the near corner a small flat-screened TV blasted out the evening news.

Ralf, the family’s dog, pawed at the glass sliding door to be let in. Mrs. Bandwilly, smiling and wiping her hands on a bright red kitchen towel, let the young boxer inside. She ordered it to stay. But just as Mrs. Bandwilly turned her back, the animal twitched its flat nose and followed close on her heels into the kitchen.

“What are we going to do with you?” she grumbled, in baby talk, while patting the flat between the dog’s clipped ears.

This was the first time that Mr. Bandwilly had heard of his daughter thinking she’d glimpsed a Bigfoot. And so he asked many questions as he forked torn pieces of lettuce into his mouth, trying to avoid dripping the thin dressing onto his white dress shirt. Careful to empty his mouth before speaking, he swallowed and waited his turn. But, each one at the table seemed to have a gabby opinion on the creature.

Finally, he snapped off with his teeth the crackling shrimp tail he held in his hand and lifted a finger, indicating he wished to speak. “So how did the conversation with the LowSam fellow end?”

Mrs. Bandwilly dipped her chin at her daughter to go ahead and tell her father what Mr. LowSam talked about on the phone. Mr. Bandwilly asked for the salad dressing to be passed to him, while Mary Joyce wiped her lips with a snowy napkin, cleared her throat and said, “He wanted to know if I were comfortable in telling him where it was behind the Broadway Mall that I thought I saw the Bigfoot.”

Beth brushed back with a hand the red springy curls from her face, so not to dip them in her dessert, which was her favorite, chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream.

Tiny Bandwilly, Mary Joyce’s four-year-old brother, with mouth full of cake, couldn’t help but laugh as Beth sucked a finger free of the ice cream drip she’d removed from her blouse front.

“Cake, Father?” Mrs. Bandwilly asked, smiling at her husband.

“I do believe so.” He thumped his full, round belly that he’d pushed out and said again, “I do believe so, but not much, my Little Bride.” Little Bride was his pet name for his wife of twenty-six years. “So where is this Bigfoot business leading? You say he’s writing some sort of book on the subject of Bigfoot?”

“Father,” Mrs. Bandwilly said, in cheerful voice, “the man simply wanted to know where the sighting had taken place and that was all there was to the conversation.”

Mrs. Bandwilly called Mr. Bandwilly Father, as a pet name. The family was big on pet names. For example, Bruce Albert Bandwilly, the couple’s four-year-old son was called Tiny, and for a fact he certainly was not. He weighed just a smidge short of one hundred pounds. He was a very big, little boy.

A couple of weeks later, Mary Joyce and her mother walked, now, across the employee parking lot at the mall where Mrs. Bandwilly worked as a receptionist at a very busy beauty salon. Mary Joyce glanced at the big dumpster at the corner of the building nearest the thickly treed hillside. This was where she believed she’d seen the Bigfoot several weeks in the past.

It was nine p.m., and the parking lot held only one car─the Bandwilly’s. The parking lot was well lit, but where Mary Joyce had seen the animal was now in dark shadow; the tall building slashed its shadow across the dumpster and out ten or so feet from the building. As she watched a low, silvery-white cloud slowly drifted across the full moon, making the dumpster area still darker.

“Come on, Mary Joyce,” Mrs. Bandwilly said as she unlocked the car. Her daughter had stopped a few feet in front of the car to stare at the dumpster. The twelve-year-old fingered her phone, ready to snap a photo if she saw the beast. “Mary Joyce!” she shouted again. Her daughter was slowly approaching the dumpster. Mary Joyce shot a hand up for her mother to wait a sec. Hand still up, she shook her head, pleading silently for her to p-l-e-a-s-e not shout again.

“No, Mary, you come right back here!” The shout was even louder, with an urgent edge to it.

The sound of her voice evidently startled something in the dumpster. Suddenly, from its interior a great din erupted. Cardboard boxes tumbled, plastic snapped, paper crackled and from inside the dumpster a huge cat clawed itself frantically to the rim. It teetered, got its balance then leaped to the pavement with a chilling feline howl and streaked around the end of the building into the woods.

Both mother and daughter, their eyes wide, screamed at the noise and flash of movement. They quickly laughed about it until tears ran down their cheeks. That was all they talked about on the drive home.

“I expected to see Bigfoot pop his head up; didn’t you, Mother?”

“I sure did. But, that rascal of a cat was scary enough─thank you very much!”

... continued next week.

Dear ESP Team,

I know that the "discovery" of bigfoot is the most important thing to you (the ESP Team).  I, this blog, has always been a friend to you. But, I'm feeling you are not a friend to me. I've been left in a very bad light, because of your not commenting, your not defending your existence as "real people" (other than Parchell) and the slowness of presenting your bigfoot photos and other important information. I feel my reputation will  and is being irreparably damaged.

So, I hope you will reconsider and help me out here a little. One person today has claimed he has sent Jean Ivey the Editor of the Coquille Valley Sentinel a letter, telling her of my so-called fraud. I am not a fraud. I am not a liar.

I have said I am not part of the "bigfoot community"! I'm not and don't wish to have anything to do with most of them. I'm at a low point this evening. I know you "owe" Ballyhoo nothing, however, I do hope you will budge a little on this and give a hand to a friend.
Thanks ... Linda Newton-Perry

Thanks Marcy

Thanks for the chuckle, Ms Newton-Perry. It sounds like still another rude person has raged at you for not being a clone of the self-appointed "expert researchers"; and you have rightly told them where you stand.

There are so many questions for a reasonable person to ask about the "bigfoot community". For instance, why have these dozens of noisy experts accomplished nothing at all? They've been writing books and holding seminars (and getting paid) since the 60s. And once the internet became a fact of life, they all started websites and blogs. Where are the results? Personally, I'm grateful that you are not part of that community: the ballyhoo blog is a good place for civil people to meet and talk. Thank you!

Newspaper Column "A Matter of Time"



Watch for Footprints in the Snow!


It is not often, in Oregon, we get snow on the valley floor before Thanksgiving, but we did this year. When I think of snow, I think of it as a great opportunity to see bigfoot’s footprints. Granted, to see these footprints you’ve got to be where bigfoot might be, but then we did have a group visiting our forests during the early snowfall: hunters. The hunters were still in the forests when these lower elevation snows hit last week. So, did you see footprints or did you hear of someone seeing footprints? Please let us know at Bigfoot Ballyhoo, (www.bigfootballyhoo.blogspot.com).

And now, there will be another group in the woods that may get a look at bigfoot’s prints: Christmas tree cutters. Of course, there is always the chance of glimpsing the animal, so keep a sharp eye and your camera ready. If you’ve read this column or the blog Bigfoot Ballyhoo, then you know I’m fond of reminding the readers that bigfoot photos will always be welcome. I would think the more photos the better. It sounds reasonable to me that even after a bigfoot body has been presented to science, photos of it in its habitat will be invaluable in compiling the body of knowledge required to substantiate the animal.

With the snow piling up in the higher elevations, it makes me think of the theory that bigfoot moves to lower elevations during winter months. I spent some time researching the theory on the internet, but could only find opinions, nothing solid. But that is no wonder, science has no solid proof bigfoot exists and so can not dig in and study the subject with their brilliant minds and big budgets.

A year or so ago, while we vacationed on the Oregon Coast, we heard on the local news that bigfoot prints had been photographed and reported in the nearby hills. And do you remember, a photograph made the national news of a trail camera snapping a photo of what looked like a bigfoot raiding a garden. Turned out to be a crow, but the point is bigfoot makes the news. Readers, don’t hold back from calling your local papers, local TV stations and reporting your sightings, both of the animal and footprints. Whether people believe the animal exists or not, one thing is clear; bigfoot intrigues the public. Hunters, Christmas tree cutters, please have a share in the “discovery” of this animal and tell someone about your sighting. And you will be contributing to making bigfoot talk commonplace!

 Until next week, Linda Newton-Perry

Talking Bigfoot!

Watch for the Hairy Guy!

Visiting with Joey and Jenna Bigfoot


We have been giving this bigfoot couple privacy in order for them to work out their family problems. Joey assures us that family life is settling into a happy routine that they both can live with. Jenna, Joey's wife, has invited us to their home, "in the near future," she said. She needs a little more time to get things "fixed" just right. Remember we moved them into the dollhouse in the garage. But today they came to visit on the desktop. We here at Ballyhoo are so happy for the couple. Family life can be so fulfilling when all is going well. ... Just thought you would like to know this good news. ... LNP

A Good "Word" From Marcy:

Hope you and all your loved ones have had a pleasant, peaceful Thanksgiving. This charming blog is one of the things for which I give thanks. Yes, there's humor. And a harmless delight in the natural world, and a beautiful curiosity about the giant creature. I appreciate the comment from Norma. And your list of scientific specialists is great! Please let me add "entomologist" to the list? It has occurred to me many times that the heavy coat of the giants must harbor a lot of insects. They might even have their own species of flea.

;-D

The comment from Autumn Williams has the (usual, boring) repeated attempt to control your blog, Linda. What is it with these self-appointed dictators? Does it cost them anything if your blog isn't a clone of their blogs? Thanks for standing firm; for not allowing their rudeness to bully you into becoming like them.

All too soon we forget all the good things people do in life. Negativity seems to be popular among bigfoot sites. Not in the case of Ballyhoo. The site is refreshing and most interesting. I never believed bigfoot was real until I saw Linda Newton-Perry's articles in our paper.

Then I came to Ballyhoo and saw all the other people that [have] seen him or her; it changed my mind. I remember when Dawn saw the limping creature at the tunnel. It was the "talk" about town, if you know what I mean. I was working at the Hamburger Shack along 38 and many were interested in the bigfoot.

I even served an OSP officer that said he believed you [Dawn] told the truth on what happened that early morning. Some bigfoot sighting, for several years, have been around here before [and] so you're not the first one.

Hopefully some day we will all see bigfoot in the science books.

I know it's a drag...

Talking Bigfoot Here!

Be nice, get cookie. Be mean, no cookie.


Have Mom or Dad help you with these easy cookies. And I mean easy!

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
(The above ingredients will make a very tender cookie. If you wish to shape them into bigfoots add oats or whatever type cereal you have on hand to make them firmer.)

Bake at 350% for 12 to 15 minutes. Keep a close watch so not to burn them. Happy cookie making!

 P.S. I did finally give Joey part of a cookie. I thought you would like to know. And well, he did say he was sorry for being "smart mouthed."

A Word:


biologists, bacteriologists, biochemists, biophysicists, biometrists, cytologists, ecologists, geneticists, physiologists, morphologists, anatomists, histologists, botanists or zoologists! IN SHORT, we are not EXPERTS in the field of Bigfoot Discovery. 

 WE are simply bigfoot believers! We write. We write about bigfoot.  Bigfoot Ballyhoo is a blog to come to in order to see what is being written by others and us about bigfoot. If you get a CHUCKLE from the blog, then, I guess, we’ve done our job. Because, you see, we enjoy humor, and like to share it.

However, we do not make up anything. Write an interesting comment and we will allow it on the blog. Both sides of an argument will be allowed as long as the comment is written  in a dignified style and language.

From Autumn Williams

Linda,


This is Autumn Williams. I never received ANYTHING from anyone claiming to be this person. I repeat... I have NEVER, not ONCE, been contacted by ANYONE claiming to be any of the ESP team members, though I've certainly been waiting and would be more than happy to post it if I had.

I don't know who's posting all of these messages, but they are full of it. If you're not going to verify the identities of these people yourself, kindly stop posting anonymous comments full of untruths from people claiming to be them. Such comments cast aspersions on my character and are libelous BECAUSE they are untrue.

I have gained nothing by posting questions regarding the veracity of the claims on this site. I, like everyone else, would simply like to know what the truth is, regardless of what it is. Once again, I invite ANYONE on the "ESP team" to contact via my website at OregonBigfoot.com

Comment: Hank Parchell of the ESP Team


I have returned tonight to make  a comment on the recent attacks towards my friends and family. OK, let's start with the myth that I am some kind of a old movie star from the seventies: source Oregon bigfoot blog. My name is Henry Hank Parchell. I'm 65 and live with my long time wife of 43 years.

 I joined Bill Emery after the death of Dale Saxton. Because some fictitious character as Hank Parshall appeared in some old movie, some have said I'm not who I say I am. So be it, if that is what they want to run with.

Over the past few months some have said hurtful things about my friends and I don't care for it. I emailed Autumn Williams last month with a simple copy of my documentation but she never returned the email nor spoke of it on her blog. Well, I can only surmise that some don't want to stop the bickering about photos and the BS on Bill and Cole.

Marla tried to keep this blog informed about upcoming events with the remaining photos. Somewhere along the line word began to seep out on our plans. We do not think Linda nor Marla was ever responsible for the leak.

As we move closer to resolving the issue of what we photographed in August, we will be silent because of reasons we find important.We will announce to Mrs. Perry when we are going to proceed. We are extremely saddened by the way the squatchdetective used our words for the gain of his site along with Williams.

This is a free country and free speech must remain just that--free. It would have been my hopes that the infighting in bigfoot land would have been outgrown by most. It is apparently difficult for some to overcome their hormones.

We hope all is well and we will let Linda know in advance when we plan to present the evidence and photos. Chow!

Thank you so much for this comment. ... LNP

Attention: Albert Not Al

You don't want me to publish your comment? I will if you wish. ... LNP

Here is Albert's comment:

We need to put this squatchdetective in context here. He claims all or most of the comment from BB [Bigfoot Ballyhoo]  are from one person. He tries to put forth his reasoning for this. He has proved nothing except he is no expert on writing. Only one thing can make someone so determined to slice someone and that's hatred.

But he has never talked with Linda Perry or Bill Emery as he says on his cry sheet (site). Bigfoot Ballyhoo is from Oregon, and here we have a guy from the east trying to detect from a chair. I Have sent out some emails to some organizations I know and find one thing in common. They all say he's something else for lack of words.

 Linda Perry need not fear this guy and needs to continue with the reports and stories as they come in. Nobody is going to take this man serious. He said he didn't want to quote "make it personal" but he seems to be thinking with his glands. All investigators need to look at this guy and keep [him] in the paranormal realm, not Bigfoot research. I do realize Linda will not post this but it needs to be said that the Bigfoot community as a whole IS NOT behind Steve.
____________

I can assure you, I don't fear this man. I have an impeccable reputation. It simply annoys me that he can get away with saying any and everything about me and this site. I do wish ... Well anyway. ...LNP

Again, to make it clear.

I stated several weeks ago that I would shut this blog down if the ESP Team's three remaining sharp photos are proven to be a hoax (captured Aug. 8, 2010). Those photos have not been put on this blog. Yes, of the photos the team gave me to put on the blog two of them had been tampered with.  Again, the tampered with photos are not the clear photos still to be released. ... Linda Newton-Perry

EYE OF THE BEAST is a Children's Bigfoot Book, Fiction


Twelve-year-old Mary Joyce Bandwilly of
Eye of the Beast

Enjoy



Chapter1


“What do you mean that you t-h-i-n-k you’ve seen a Bigfoot?” asked Mrs. April LowSam. She sniffed as was her habit when hearing something she couldn’t seem to wrap her thinking around.

“It’s all nonsense! I say simple nonsense!” she all but snorted, and in a volume uncomfortably loud for those standing nearby.

“Well, I mean … I mean exactly that. Of course, I can’t be certain, but, I believe strongly that I glimpsed a Bigfoot,” twelve-year-old Mary Joyce Bandwilly blurted out boldly. That is as boldly as she could manage with three classmates snickering at her shoulders─hanging, however, wide-eyed onto every one of her words.

“Don’t you think it was possible someone was playing a prank on you?… You know, someone dressed in a gorilla costume to fool you?” Mrs. LowSam’s questions came between long sniffs, while bent over, pulling up her white sagging socks with her long hair almost brushing the floor.

Mary Joyce’s classmates giggled louder now. Not at anything Mary Joyce was saying, but at Mrs. LowSam. She was speaking bent from the waist, broad backside pointed at the group. Mrs. LowSam was built pear-shaped. Mary Joyce couldn’t help but giggle too. She bit her lower lip, making not a sound. For, if she had this much admired teacher’s figure, she was certain she’d have pointed her backside away from anyone near enough to observe the wide span of it.

Mrs. LowSam, however, knew exactly what she was doing; she went out of her way to make “her girls” laugh. Actually, in good humor, she often pointed to her broad hips, when encouraging her girls to keep active. In merry laughter, she routinely exclaimed that her figure awaited any young lady who was slothful in her exercise habits.

In times of serious discussions, and there were many, she explained her width was inherited; otherwise, she expounded, she was of normal size for a woman of fifty.

The end-of-period whistle blew from the boys’ side of the gym. Mrs. LowSam flicked a long, thin hand at the locker room, meaning her class to run along. “Mary Joyce,” she said, “I’d like a word.”

“Yes, Mrs. LowSam?”

“Mary Joyce, please don’t feel … or rather, don’t misunderstand me about this Bigfoot animal. I know there have been numerous TV programs on the subject.…” She paused, cleared her throat and went on, “It’s just that, well, I’ve not made a decision as to whether I believe the animal exists. I just thought I would tell you that. And you might be interested to know that my husband does believe the animal is real. He’s forever with his nose in a book researching the subject. Well, go along now and get ready for your next class.”

Mary Joyce, caught off guard, simply didn’t know how to reply to the woman’s words. She smiled, nodded that she understood, took a step back, whirled ‘round and dashed to her friend waiting at the locker room door.

“What did she want?” Beth Clark whispered, as both girls went through the door into the concrete-floored hallway leading to the group of chatty, half-dressed girls primping at the one large floor to ceiling mirror.

“Nothing,” Mary Joyce said quietly. Beth continued to look at her with a puzzled expression, so she added, “Just talking about Bigfoot.” Still in soft voice, as she unbuttoned the top button of her sleeveless, white gym shirt, she said, “I’ll tell you later when we’re walking home. I’ve got to tell Susan Loam something.”

Her best friend, Beth, mumbled okay from the inside of her shirt as she peeled it over her head without unbuttoning the top button. Beth never bothered to unbutton the top button of her gym shirt.The pulled, frayed threads holding the button onto the shirt appeared in danger of breaking at any moment.

Beth Clark it seems was always in a hurry. Mary Joyce liked her for it. Ordinary things of daily life took up little of Beth’s time. She simply patted her riot of red natural curls down and flicked the long locks behind her ears. Her cheeks and lips stayed red. She used no makeup as was the habit of most of their friends. It wasn’t that she didn’t like makeup, but to tone down the red splotches on her face required a long session with a special green undercoat and so she didn’t bother.

That evening, Mary Joyce and Beth were studying in Mary Joyce’s bedroom, when her mother called to her that she had a phone call. Mrs. Bandwilly held the phone covered with her plump hand. Mary Joyce reached for the phone, but her mother pulled it away.

“This is your gym teacher, Mrs. LowSam.” Mary Joyce wrinkled her brow and held both hands with
palms up, indicating she hadn’t a clue why a teacher would be calling her.

“It is Mrs. LowSam, now on the phone, but her husband is the one that wishes to speak with you. … Something about Bigfoot, I don’t understand?”

“Oh, she must have told her husband.”

“Do you want to talk to him? It is a little out of the ordinary.”

“I guess.… Sure, I’ll take it.”

“Mary, I’m going to listen in on the extension. Tell him your mother is on the other phone.”

Mary Joyce rolled her eyes at her mother. She tucked a strand of her purple-streaked hair behind an ear.

... to be continued next Monday.

This is to underscore why Bill Emery needs to protect his pictures. Internet Crime Center Logs 2 Millionth Complaint Submitted by admin on November 17, 2010.The Internet Crime Complaint Center has logged its 2 millionth consumer complaint alleging online criminal activity. The milestone entry was submitted on November 9, 2010.

The IC3, a partnership between the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center, became operational in May 2000 and received its 1 millionth complaint seven years later, on June 11, 2007. It took half that time to receive the 2 millionth complaint, which illustrates the IC3’s increased visibility and the continued growth of cyber crime such as theft of copyrighted materials without permission.

The IC3 receives, develops, and refers cyber crime complaints to local, state, federal, and international law enforcement agencies. The IC3 gives cyber crime victims a convenient and easy-to-use reporting mechanism that alerts authorities of suspected criminal or civil violations.Many thefts included are false claims of the fair access doctrine designed only to view material without commentary.

Since its inception, the IC3 has referred 757,016 criminal complaints to law enforcement around the globe. The majority of referrals involved fraud in which the complainant incurred a financial loss. The total reported loss from these referrals is approximately $1.7 billion, with a median reported loss of more than $500 per complaint.

Bigfoot lives in the wild, wild forest. Do you have photos of towering trees, rushing creeks, etc.? Share them with us. Behind any tree, bigfoot could be hiding, watching, just waiting to have his photo taken. I hope you are the one to capture a photo that is without question a B I G F O O T!

Thanks for commenting this weekend.

Thanks to all of you for commenting. The weekends can be soooooo slow for comments.

Thanks Dawn for this comment.

 All too soon we forget all the good things people do in life. Negativity seems to be popular among bigfoot sites. Not in the case of Ballyhoo. The site is refreshing and most interesting. I never believed bigfoot was real until I saw Linda Newton-Perry's articles in our paper.

Then I came to Ballyhoo and saw all the other people that [have] seen him or her; it changed my mind. I remember when Dawn saw the limping creature at the tunnel. It was the "talk" about town, if you know what I mean. I was working at the Hamburger Shack  along 38 and many were intersted in the bigfoot.

I even served an OSP officer that said he believed you told the truth on what happened that early morning. Some bigfoot sighting, for several years, have been around here before [and] so you're not the first one.

Hopefully some day we will all see bigfoot in the science books.

Where the bigfoot crossed in front of Dawn


Dawn has left a new comment on your post "Bigfoot Newspaper Column":


Linda , you should speak of ESP. They have been invaluable to this blog with information. Because one or two people decided they weren't in the mainstream Bigfoot community. they decided to slander the men with baseless dribble. I know for a fact these men exist and I'm proud to say Bill Emery is a fine man. He helped me when the cards were down and helped me through the toughest time when I went to court after my ordeal with the DMV.

Many things have changed in my life since that morning when the Bigfoot walked across the road at the tunnel. My world is full of the need to know more about these fantastic creatures. I wake up ever morning seeing that old Bigfoot looking into my face. If it wouldn't have been for Dale and Bill I might have not been able to ever understand why seeing these beings are so frighting to some.

 I value my families privacy and wonder how the women of these men kept their sanity during all the ugly things hurled at them. I would love to send you a photo Angela, my daughter,  took of Dale and Bill alongside me. But as one might say it would only give myself trouble because my picture is with them on each side of me in our driveway.

Please never quit talking about the ESP team. They are the real deal as far as true friends. And one last thing. If Bill promised to let you have a picture then decided not too there's got to be a very good reason for his reversal.

Okay, we will continue to talk about the ESP Team. And Dawn, if you want to send the photo I can make it so your driveway will not be recognized. Just a thought. ... Linda Newton-Perry

Bigfoot and Snow


Snow has been falling in the mountains of Oregon. One commenter said that when the snows begin there is an increase in bigfoot reports. One thing is for sure, it is easier to see where these hairy giants have been. Those long strides give him away. But do be careful if you decide to venture out looking to spot a bigfoot. People every year get stranded in the snow. So be prepared. The blog, Bigfoot Ballyhoo, would enjoy posting your videos of the snow, of the forests in general.

The blog is finally returning to a peaceful state after a firestorm of disgruntled viewers had their say. About what you ask? For several months now we have been waiting for a photo of the ESP Team’s Big Clyde. (It is now confirmed, Ballyhoo will not be allowed to publish it.) Because a few tampered with photos that the team submitted, many viewers vented. For some time, a steady stream of comments voiced the opinion that the authors of Ballyhoo were making up the whole ESP Team and its amazing capture of a photo of bigfoot, which of course was not true. Vulgar comments made it necessary for the comment tool to be disabled for a few hours and now the blog’s comments are checked for decency and only appropriate comments are allowed. Children have been invited to view and comment. Relaxation music is available to hear, fish are waiting to be fed, beautiful photos to be viewed, and bigfoot sightings to be read, all this on the blog, Bigfoot Ballyhoo, (www.bigfootballyhoo.blogspot.com.)

Last weekend Chris and I enjoyed a night at what we call “the apartment” located on the Oregon Coast. On our way home we stopped at a gun shop and I, of course, asked the proprietress if she’d heard of any bigfoot sightings in the area. Her answer was no, but before we left the shop she’d said her husband had seen in California, something he couldn’t account for, and believed it a possible bigfoot. The being was in the road ahead of him, as many sightings are. He was sure it wasn’t a bear.

I’m thinking, “bigfoot talk” is becoming a little more commonplace every day. Please do remember, photos of this elusive being will always be enjoyed and always will be valuable in the discovery of its habits et cetera. Keep your cameras handy, eyes sharp, for it may be that you get the best photo yet of bigfoot!

I noticed in this report the 19 inch footprints. This Is No doubt in my mind the same bigfoot as Bill E coined Clyde.The chances of two creatures with that size is not possible.Google Earth shows roughly 8 miles from Sru to Rock Creek Campground. At that distance it would be very likely that Clyde was footing around down at the camp. It also underscores others have seen it not just ESP. That shoots the made up bigfoot theory out the door of ESP faking it.

Winter Weather, Be Careful


Photo: photoxpress and not of areas mentioned below (that we know of)


Arthur comments:

I always think it very important to advise folks of coming winter conditions in the Powers Ranger District of Oregon. Heavy snow is forecasted down to the valley floors over the next few days. Already reports of deep snow have surfaced from Iron Mountain, Buck Creek (Merial), Johnson Mountain, Agness Pass (Bear Camp is now closed for the season till late April or May).

Use extreme caution when traveling all mountains in Oregon.

One other thing I might add is last year we had a pickup in reports of bigfoot when the first snows hit so enjoy your weekends and keep safe.

In Case You Didn't See This Bigfoot Experience


Percy Hall has left a comment:


June 3rd 2010. Three couples with children were camped on Rock Creek campground over the holiday. On the evening of the 3rd one couple said something approached them on the other side of the creek . They heard it come down through the heavy brush and stood near the creek watching the kids throwing rocks in the water. At different intervals the thing let out a weird grunt like sound and the couple said this thing smelt like a dead skunk.

It stayed there for about 15 minutes and then left with a good deal of noise walking trough the brush. The air was ripe with the smell from this thing. I could smell it from my campsite even. The parents made the kids go back to the trailers and shut the doors. The couple told me what they had heard. We went to investigate but all of us had a feeling of danger so we didn't cross the creek.

 I told the couple they needed to tell the forest service about this but they were to scared to report it . Later that night I heard some loud screams coming from the mountain near the camp. I reported the sound to the USFS the next morning only to get a smile and a wink from him. The following night something or somebody walked around my trailer and made my dog go nuts. I shined a light out but did not see anybody.

The next morning my Coleman cook stove had been turned over and a can of MJB coffee and 3 pounds of bacon was gone. Some weird tracks were barely visible and looked to be barefoot tracks of a human but larger than any person I have seen. These prints were around 19 inches long so I thought somebody was playing games, but since I have thought about it and feel no human made these tracks or prints. I did hear what sounded like tree knocking the week before but didn't think much more about it. I really didn't believe in bigfoot but now I don't know what to believe.

This area is very close to Sru Lake. Rock Creek is the lower road off USFS 33

This is very interesting indeed. I would hope that ESP would take action against SquatchDective.com for the thief of pictures and other material . When they made up their own commentary of Emery and his group they broke the law knowing it wasnt right or lawful.

Joey bigfoot, enjoys coloring.

Those that can write have a voice!

Kids, adults, let's hear, or rather read, what you have to say about bigfoot. You must enjoy the subject or you would not be here. So take a minute and write a message to the other fans of this hairy being that the world has named bigfoot. ... I often wonder what he will be named after he is proclaimed, "real." Got any ideas? ... LNP

A Question

We do nothing with the sighting you send. It will simply be enjoyed by the readers of this blog. ... LNP

Pretend You're Racing Down the Mountain


____________
Name of video is "Taking the Easy Way Down." And why have we put it here on Bigfoot Ballyhoo? Well, it is beautiful Oregon,  which is bigfoot country. And if you were looking for bigfoot, knew he existed, that is, you might even see one from time to time, even if you were like this guy/gal racing down a mountain.

Why ESP Team should protect its photos.

Debbie comments: 


This is to underscore why Bill Emery needs to protect his pictures. Internet Crime Center Logs 2 Millionth Complaint

Submitted by admin on November 17, 2010.The Internet Crime Complaint Center has logged its 2 millionth consumer complaint alleging online criminal activity. The milestone entry was submitted on November 9, 2010.

The IC3, a partnership between the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center, became operational in May 2000 and received its 1 millionth complaint seven years later, on June 11, 2007. It took half that time to receive the 2 millionth complaint, which illustrates the IC3’s increased visibility and the continued growth of cyber crime such as theft of copyrighted materials without permission.

The IC3 receives, develops, and refers cyber crime complaints to local, state, federal, and international law enforcement agencies. The IC3 gives cyber crime victims a convenient and easy-to-use reporting mechanism that alerts authorities of suspected criminal or civil violations.Many thefts included are false claims of the fair access doctrine designed only to view material without commentary.

Since its inception, the IC3 has referred 757,016 criminal complaints to law enforcement around the globe. The majority of referrals involved fraud in which the complainant incurred a financial loss. The total reported loss from these referrals is approximately $1.7 billion, with a median reported loss of more than $500 per complaint.*

This is my bigfoot. I made him. He has pitch, insects, weeds and more in his scraggly hair. Help me name him. Yes, I think he's a male. If I pick your name, I'll send you one of our children's bigfoot books. So, start commenting names you like. Dec. 1, will be the last day to submit your name. Tell your friends about Bigfoot Ballyhoo. They may like to submit a name, too.
