I was given the opportunity to review the Small Town Monsters production 'Minerva Monster' - The film is described as follows:

In August of 1978 a small town in eastern Ohio was thrust into the spotlight when a local family sighted a “monster” in the woods behind their home. Over subsequent evenings they were repeatedly visited by the creature culminating in a late-night encounter that ended in local police being called in. The story blasted onto the front pages of newspapers across the state and into the consciousness of a nation. For weeks police, news crews, and scores of hunters descended on the town of Minerva with one common goal; to find the beast.

Now, nearly 36 years later, the Minerva Monster will be unveiled once again. Featuring in-depth interviews with law enforcement, media personnel and witnesses, Minerva Monster aims to retell the Cayton’s story as it never has been before. Against the backdrop of small-town America a myth will become reality.

The film's director Seth Breedlove asked me to look at the video and to offer my opinion. My first impression was that it was a pleasure to watch a Bigfoot related documentary complete with actual witness statements. Cryptid & paranormal films can be entertaining and informative minus embellishment...unlike much of what is usually offered. The film was skillfully assembled...giving the viewer a real sense of what the witnesses endured. There are other factors included in the mystery, which will tease the interest of cryptid enthusiasts. All in all, the film was a fascinating and enjoyable presentation. I highly recommend that you take the time to view the handiwork. Lon

Time Stood Still During UFO Encounter

Amarillo, TX - I was 7 years old at the time of the event, July, 20th of 1987. My girlfriend's parents had just bought some land near Amarillo, Texas, and my parents followed her parents out to visit the property and hang out. Though I do not know the exact location, I know it was within 10 miles of the city.

It was about midnight when we arrived and my girlfriend and I were drawn out into the field for some unknown reason. It was not typical for either of us to just wonder off into a dark field without our parents. Her brother, my brother, and our parents were busy getting stuff out of their vehicles and apparently didn't notice we were walking off.

When we got about 350 feet from the vehicles an object appeared in the sky on the right side of us and hovered there. It appeared without any noise 20 feet from us and about 30 feet above the ground. We both saw it appear and froze as we looked at it. I felt paralyzed, but not afraid, and time seemed to have stood still. I first noticed the lights, which were emitting from large circular windows.

As I looked into the windows it seemed as thought there was some sort of thick colorful gas or liquid inside which pulsated in a way I had never seen. To this day, the closest thing I can use to describe it is bio-luminescence similar to a comb jellyfish, except that the colors swirled in the windows. I also recall that it seemed like colors were included that I have never seen before, colors outside of our normal visual spectrum.

The pulsating light coming from the windows mesmerized me, and I had a sense like something within the object was observing us. I remained calm, but in awe of what I was seeing. I could see the top and bottom half of the object rotating in different directions because the windows were moving in opposite directions. The light from the windows did not shine on the ground, nor did they seem to illuminate the outside structure of the object. But I know it was not orbs, because the object's structure blocked out the sky and stars behind it. Which allowed me to see the general outline of the object. Though I saw the windows moving around the object in a circular motion, I saw no moving parts or dividing sections. The surface of the object did not seem reflective, and was blacker than the night sky behind the object.

I had the sense that something was being communicated, but had no way of articulating what it was. Then suddenly the object zipped off in a straight line up into the sky and out of view. It was so fast that at one moment it was right there in front of us, and the next it was a tiny dot, then gone. I have never seen anything move that fast in my life. It did not cause displacement of air, and made no sound as it ascended.

Once the object had ascended, my girlfriend and I looked at each other with our jaws dropped in amazement. We then ran back to the vehicles. Though the event seemed to take about 5 minutes, our parents and siblings were still getting the same stuff out of the vehicles they were when we had walked off. We both adamantly tried to tell them of what we had seen, but were ignored as they were preoccupied with getting stuff out of the vehicles.

After this event, many things occurred which are hard to explain, but I suspect may be related. My girlfriend and I never talked about it, and years later she passed away in her sleep, leaving me to be the sole living witness to the event. Until now, I have only told a handful of friends and family about my experience that night.

I have searched various UFO photos for this particular object and the only one I have found which looks remotely similar in general shape is the famous Gulf Breeze UFO. I have included basic drawings I have made of to illustrate the experience of the object I saw. - MUFON CMS


Man Saves Black Bear From Drowning

There was a big black bear that recently showed up in a neighborhood in Alligator Point, Florida.

Wildlife officials knew they didn’t have a choice, but to shoot it with a tranquilizer dart. That’s when things started going horribly wrong. Once the bear was hit with the tranquilizer dart, it became confused and began to panic. It then ran into the ocean and began swimming out further into the Gulf.

Once the bear was hit with the tranquilizer dart, it became confused and began to panic. It then ran into the ocean and began swimming out further into the Gulf.

So Adam, a biologist, did the manliest thing ever. He jumped into the ocean to save the bear from drowning. The bear had lost its ability to move its legs.

Adam then swam about 75 feet with the 400 pound bear to shore. Even though the bear was having a hard time keeping it’s head up, Adam never gave up in the rescue.

Adam finally got the bear out of the water. He only suffered a couple scratches in the heroic rescue.

Once the bear was on land, the Osceola National Forest team used a tractor bucket to transfer the bear back to the forest. - SlipTalk


Death By Wedgie

A McLoud, OK man accused of fighting with his stepfather and giving him an “atomic wedgie” that led to his asphyxiation death has pleaded guilty to an amended charge.

Brad Lee Davis, 34, was scheduled for a jury trial Monday in Pottawatomie County District Court.

Instead, he entered a guilty plea to the charge of first-degree manslaughter, heat of passion, court records show. A pre-sentence investigation was ordered and formal sentencing is now scheduled for July 16.

Davis was accused of causing the death of his stepfather, Denver St. Clair, 58, by striking him about the face and head with force and violence on Dec. 21, 2013.

Charges alleged Davis asphyxiated St. Clair by pulling the elastic band from St. Clair’s underwear over his head while the two were involved in an altercation.

During a preliminary hearing early on in the case, investigators described the crime scene and how the waistband of the victim’s underwear was stretched around the victim’s neck.

Investigators also testified that Davis, by his own words, told authorities he gave St. Clair the “atomic wedgie” when St. Clair was unconscious.

Another investigator also testified about cell phone photographs Davis allegedly took on his cell phone, some before the “atomic wedgie” had occurred and others after, with the testimony indicating there was evidence of the crime scene being altered.

Davis remains jailed without bond in the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center. - News-Star
