The Nebraska 'Roswell'
I recently received the following information:
Hi Lon, I live in SW Nebraska very close to where the "Heavenly Body" incident happened in 1884. I just heard about it 3 weeks ago. My mother was given a large piece of green glass about 25 years ago by one of the kids on her school bus route. He found it in a sandy ravine 33 miles north of Max, Nebraska on his fathers ranch. The old newspaper articles say the crash happened 35 miles northwest of Benkleman but they also say Max, Nebraska was the closest town. Those 2 pieces of information contradict each other because Max is east of Benkleman. I saw a picture of one of the pieces of glass at the High Plains History Museum. My mother's chunk of glass looks identical, cottage cheese and all. I know exactly where it came from. The little boy that gave the glass to mom had a much bigger chunk. I'm sure it's still around. I about shit a brick when I saw the big chunk on the internet. I don't know if it's the crash site but something weird created that glass and the location fits the description of the 1884 crash. I would really like to talk to Robert Golka but I understand if that's not possible. I'm sure he's a very busy guy. Anyways, I just thought I'd share that with you guys. I can send a pic or two if you're interested. Have a nice day and keep up the good work!!
Here's a link to the incident - Nebraska May Have Had Its Own Roswell In 1884. I asked the witness to forward photos. Lon
Vicious Croc Attack at Costa Rica Beach Resort
An American surfer was in serious but stable condition after he was attacked by a large crocodile at a popular tourist beach in Costa Rica on Friday, according to an emergency responder who credited the man's friend for fighting off the reptile with his bare hands.
Pat McNulty, who works as a consultant and is a certified trained lifeguard in Tamarindo, a northwestern town favored by surfers and eco-tourists, said the man was crossing a river with the friend when the crocodile struck.
"It was a vicious attack, and he was bitten several times in the leg as well as the head," McNulty told the Associated Press by phone from Costa Rica. "They were able to get him free, swim him to safety and then trained lifeguards responded ... and we administered first aid and called an ambulance."
McNulty said he accompanied the victim, who remained lucid after the attack, to Liberia, the provincial capital, where he underwent surgery. He declined to give specifics about the man's injuries other than to say he suffered lower leg trauma and his condition was serious but stable.

Miss Cleo Passes Away
There won't be any more calls to Miss Cleo ... the iconic TV psychic is dead after battling cancer ... TMZ has learned.
A rep for Miss Cleo -- whose real name was Youree Harris -- tells us she died Tuesday morning in Palm Beach County, FL. We're told she was recently hospitalized, but was discharged last week to a hospice center.
We're told Cleo was originally diagnosed with colon cancer ... but it spread to her liver and lungs.
The rep said Cleo remained a "pillar of strength" during her illness ... and died surrounded by family and friends.
Cleo's Jamaican character and her psychic commercials became a cult classic in the late '90s ... thanks to her catchphrase, "CALL ME NOW!"
Miss Cleo was actually born in L.A. -- she just nailed the accent.
After the Psychic Readers Network closed shop, Cleo bounced around to various jobs ... including voicing a character in the video game, "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City." - Miss Cleo Dead at 53
Islamists Storm French Church, Butcher Priest
Two ISIS knifemen who stormed a church in Normandy forced an elderly priest to kneel before filming themselves butchering him and performing a 'sermon in Arabic' at the altar, a terrified witness has revealed.
The attackers, claimed as 'soldiers' by ISIS, were both known to French police before they cut the throat of 84-year-old priest Jacques Hamel at the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray near Rouen.
Both were shot dead by police marksmen as they emerged from the building shouting 'Allahu Akbar' following the attack that also left a nun critically injured.
French President Francois Hollande, who visited the scene today, said the country is now 'at war' with ISIS after the terror group claimed responsibility for the attack.
