Newspaper Column, A Matter of Time
It has been a sad week for us; we heard from Buck Hamilton that Hank Parchell died in November. Parchell was one of the ESP Team members that observed a bigfoot, early morning August 8, 2010. We are terribly sorry to hear of his death, and will miss his lively and informative comments on our online bigfoot magazine, Bigfoot Ballyhoo.
He had not commented for several months, which is true of the other two members of the team, Bill Emery and Cole Saxton. Buck Hamilton, mentioned above, has also observed a bigfoot (I believe, but could be wrong). I know his wife and daughter have seen the animal. They saw the animal while camping at Sru Lake, Oregon. (The ESP Team showed them their “clear photos” of the bigfoot that their trail cam snapped Aug. 8, 2010.)
I’ve been reading online excerpts from the blog Bigfoot Premise and came across the information on the Hamilton family at Sru Lake. On a video, I asked the family about the photos of the ESP Team, how clear they were etcetera. Buck Hamilton commented on Ballyhoo, explaining the photos were clear and the animal appeared to be the same one that his family had observed on their camping trip. In this comment, he mentioned Hank Parchell’s death.
So what will the Team call itself now, since the “P” in ESP Team is no longer with them? One person asked would it be the EP Team? I don’t know what the Team will be called now. We do know that there is another member of the team, last name beginning with O.
Bigfoot opportunists/rogues from Russia put together a hoax last week. A video circulating on Youtube showed a bigfoot in a cage and another video showed a bigfoot standing over a bloody sheep in a snowy field. It was explained that the hoax was done in hopes of drawing people to a zoo to observe the hoaxed animal. The money charged to see the animal was to be used for an orphans’ charity.
I’m looking forward to watching the second year of the TV series, Finding Bigfoot (Sunday nights, Animal Planet). One would think if they’d “found” the animal, we’d all have heard about it by now. But, don’t be so quick to believe that. Why? Well, look how long it is taking for the ESP Team to present its findings and photos.
Until next week, Linda Newton-Perry
