UFOs in Trumbull County, Crop Circles in Chilicothe, Ohio, and more--Unexplained

ohio crop circles 2.jpg

Our speaker for this Wednesday's UFO program (7-8:30 in the Porter Room) has told me that he intends to focus in particular on three unexplained Ohio UFO cases:

A historical account of UFO sitings in Trumbull County involving 911 calls and communications between law enforcement officers. The original tapes of these conversations are mysteriously missing and it took two years for the backups to turn up.

An event involving a Crop Circle in Chilicothe, Ohio at the Hopewell Indian Mounds. This one is from last September.

And a third focus case will involve UFO sitings in the area of the old Nike missile base in Cleveland.

Don't forget to bring your own experience, you will have a chance to talk with Tom and the group about it and you can also turn it in to them in written form to be added to their database.

Register if you haven't already, in person at any public service desk, by calling 440-250-5460, or online by clicking HERE.

Check out the display of books on UFOs, Alien Life, Time Travel, etc. at the front of the library--and I'll see you there.

 

Want to Join MUFON or the Cleveland Ufology Project?

MUFON&CUPforBlog3.jpg

EDGE readers--want to JOIN MUFON or the Cleveland Ufology Project? A number of people have asked about this since our program last year.

Here's the scoop--you CAN join the Cleveland Ufology Project; MUFON doesn't have members, but you can SUBSCRIBE to their newsletter.

Cost to join the Cleveland Ufology Project is $25, which helps to cover the cost of renting the room they meet in.  Meetings are at 7:30 pm on the 3rd Saturday of every month at Tri-Cs western campus. Tom will be bringing flyers about this to our program on July 31.  You can also go to the organization's website at http://www.clevelandufo.com.

To subscribe to the MUFON of Ohio newsletter, go to http://www.mufonohio.com/mufono/index.html.  We can ask Tom about this too during or after the program on 7/31.

Reminder Edge readers--Registration is Required for our July 31 Program on UFO Activity in Ohio.  Sign-up in person at any public service desk, call 440-250-5460, or click HERE to register online via our Event Calendar.

I've been in communication with our speaker and he's anxious to learn of your personal experiences with UFOs: sitings, communications, abductions....  We're going to allot a full half hour for audience questions and comments.   So those of you who are not shy, come prepared to participate.

And everyone, if you've had an experience you'd like to share,  write it up and turn it in after the program to Tom or to me, or just leave it on the table with your evaluation and I'll be sure it gets to him.  The Cleveland Ufology Project is building a database of personal accounts.

The Sports Section - Dog Days of Summer

The warm weather of the summer months is naturally one of the busiest times on the sports front.  Even though summer sports get most of the attention this time of year, there is still plenty of talk on the sports radio shows about the Browns and Cavs and the off-season moves they're making.  And the Indians are still making it interesting in the AL Central.

Greetings EDGE Readers!

MARK YOUR CALENDARS--Wednesday evening July 31, Thomas Wertman of  MUFON Ohio and the Cleveland Ufology Project returns to present part two of our series on UFO activity. 

Last year, Tom gave us an introduction to UFO activity in Ohio—this year, he'll concentrate on UNEXPLAINED SITINGS and ENCOUNTERS—the meaty stuff.   I know this is what you guys are really interested in.  And he's promised to allot ample time at the end of the program for questions and answers and for you to SHARE YOUR PERSONAL EXPERIENCES.

It promises to be an EXCITING evening.
