IT IS DIFFICULT TO DESCRIBE THIS AS IT IS SECOND HAND INFORMATION. I HAVE TO GO BACK AND TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT..I WAS LISTEN ING TO ART BELL WITH RGW HIS GUEST. MY HUSBAND WENT TO BED ABOUT 11:00 PM.. I THEN WENT BACK INTO THE LIVING ROOM AND WENT OUT ON THE PATIO AND BROUGHT IN ONE OF OUR CATS WHO HAS BEEN HURT AND IT WAS COOL AND I WANTED HER IN THE HOUSE. I BROUGHT HER IN AND SHUT THE GLASS PATIO DOOR AND LOCKED IT AND PUT THE STICK IN THE TRACK AND CAME INTO THE COMPUTER ROOM AND CONTINUED LISTENING TO ARTS SHOW.. I APPARENTLY DOZED OFF AND MY HUSBAND GOT UP TO GO TO THE BATHROOM AND WOKE ME AND TOLD ME T TO GO TO BED IT WAS 12:15 AM AND I SAID I AM AWAKE NOW AND SENT A EMAIL TO A FRIEND IN AZ AND WAS WAITING FOR A REPLY, FINALLY FIGURED THAT HE WAS NOT GOING TO WRITE AND I TURNED THE COMPUTER OFF AND WENT TO LAY DOWN ON THE COUCH.. I LAYED DOWN WITH MY SHOES ON AND I AND I WAS FULLY DRESSED AND COVERED UP AND WENT TO SLEEP.. I WOKE AT 7:15 AM FROM A CAT WANTING SOMETHING TO EAT. I GOT UP AND WENT TO OPEN THE PATIO DOOR AND FOUND IT WAS UNLOCKED, OPEN AND THE STICK WAS OUT AND ON THE RUG.. I FIGURED THAT MY HUSBAND GOT UP AND LET THEM OUT AND WENT BACK TO BED. HAD NO PROBLEM WITH THAT.. THEN ABOUT 11:00 AM I CALL FROM A FRIEND ((name deleted)) AND SHE WANTED TO KNOW WHERE IT WAS I HAD SEEN THE LIGHTS AS SHE WAS GOING TO GO OUT AND LOOK FOR MORE CROP CIRCLES AND HAD RESERVATIONS ON A PRIVATE PLANE TO GO UP THIS AFTERNOON. I THOUGHT SHE WAS REFERRING TO THE ONES THAT OF JULY 14 THAT I ATTEMPTED TO FILE A REPORT WITH YOU.. ANYWAY SHE SAID NO THE CALL THIS MORNING. I SAID WHAT CALL AND SHE SAID I HAD CALLED HER AT 2:40 AM THIS MORNING.I WILL TYPE HERE VERBATIM WHAT SHE SAID WAS ON THE MESSAGE, SINCE SHE HAD NO IDEA ANYTHING WAS AMISS, SHE DELETED THE MESSAGE. SHE SAID THAT SHE LISTENED TO IT 2-3 TIMES AND THIS THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID I SAID.( I WILL TELL YOU WHAT SHE SAID WAS ON THE MESSAGE, THEN TELL YOU WHAT I KNOW TO BE TRUE) HELLO ((name deleted)) THIS IS ((name #2 deleted)), I APOLOGIZE FOR CALLING SO LATE ITS 2:40 AM AND I AN OVER BY NORTH SALEM HIGH SCHOOL, AND I HAVE BEEN WATCHING A UFO IT FOR 45 MINUTES. IT IS A BIG WHITE LIGHT AND IT HAS 3 LIGHTS TRAILING ON ONE SIDE AND 2 LIGHTS ON THE OTHER AND IT IS NOT A STAR. WHO CAN I CALL WHO IS LIKE PETER DAVENPORT IN SEATTLE, I DO NOT WANT TO CALL HIM, WHO LIVES IN SALEM THAT I CAN CALL? I THINK THIS SHOULD BE INVESTIGATE THEN SHE SAID THE PHONE WENT DEAD.. END I ASKED HER IF SHE WAS SURE THAT THE CALLER WAS ME?? SHE SAID YES I ONLY KNOW ONE ((name deleted)) AND IT WAS YOUR VOICE AND NO ONE ELSE WOULD KNOW ABOUT THE LAST CALL TO THE UFO CENTER INS SEATTLE AND REFER TO PETER DAVENPORT. SHE SAID SHE LISTENED TO THE MESSAGE 2-3 TIMES' BEFORE SHE DELETED IT.. I ASKED HER IF SHE STILL HAD THE MESSAGE AND MAYBE SOMEONE COULD GET THE ERASED MESSAGE OFF THE TAPE, SHE SAID THIS WAS NOT A TAPE IT WAS A US WEST ANSWERING SVC L LIKE YOU GET THROUGH THE PHONE COMPANY..SHE SAID THAT I WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO CALLED HER LATE AT NIGHT AND SHE HARDLY GETS ANY CALLS AT HER HOME, PEOPLE CALL HER AT HER BUSINESS. THIS IS WHAT I KNOW TO BE TRUE........ ONE I TOLD ((name deleted)) ABOUT BEING UPSET ABOUT THE LAST CALL I MADE TO THE CENTER AND SHE HAD NOT TOLD ANYONE ABOUT THAT INFORMATION. TWO...WHEN I GOT UP THE STICK WAS OUT OF THE PATIO DOOR AND THE DOOR WAS ABOUT 1/3 OPEN. I HAD JUST THOUGHT THAT MY HUSBAND HAD GOTTEN UP EARLIER AND OPENED THE DOOR TO LET THE CATS IN AND OUT.. I FOUND OUT HE HAD NOT BEEN UP AT ALL SINCE HE TOLD ME TO GO TO BED AT 12:15 AM. I WENT OUT AND CHECKED AND MY GAS GAGE WAS OFF. I HAD NOTICED I NEEDED GAS WHEN I CAME HOME WEDNESDAY NIGHT FROM THE STORE. I HAD JUST UNDER 1/4 TANK OF GAS... THIS MORNING THE TANK WAS SITTING AT ABOUT 1/8 TANK... DID NOT NOTICE THE CAR KEYS OUT OF PLACE OR ANYTHING. I KNOW I DID NOT HAVE ANY CHANGE FROM THE STORE AND SO IF I CALLED MY FRIEND FROM OVER NEAR NORTH SALEM HIGH SCHOOL, THEN I MUST HACE CALLED FROM MY MOTHERS FORMER HOUSE THAT WE ARE WORKING IN GETTING IT READY TO SELL.. IT IS ABOUT 1/2 BLOCK FROM NORTH SALEM HIGH SCHOOL. SO THAT IS IT... I DO NOT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED, WHERE I WAS, WHAT I DID... WHEN I ASKED MY FRIEND HOW SURE SHE WAS IT WAS ME ON THE PHONE SHE SAID 99% ONE THE BIBLE SURE... SO I HAVE NO DOUBTS I DID CALL HER. WITHOUT TELLING THEM WHY I CALLED A GIRL FRIEND WHO HAS CONNECTIONS TO SOMEONE AT MUFON.. I ASKED IF THERE HAD BEEN A SIGHTING LAST NIGHT AROUND HERE... SHE HESITATED A MINUTE AND SAID YES, SOME LADY HAD CALLED AT 9:30 PM ( THEY HAD JUST GONE TO BED) AND SAID THAT SHE WAS WATCHING SOME LIGHTS AND THAT THERE WAS ONE BRIGHT ONE AND 3 SMALLER ONES ON THE SIDE ALMOST LIKE A "V" AND SHE COULD NOT SEE THE OTHER SIDE IF THERE WAS ONE. SHE SAID SHE COULD NOT TELL ALOT ABOUT IT AS IT WAS A LONG DISTANCE AWAY. THIS IS VERY SIMILAR TO WHAT I SUPPOSEDLY SAW AND CALLED MY FRIEND ABOUT. IT IS ALSO NOT TOO FAR OFF FROM THE SIGHTING OF JULY 14 THE ONE IN MEDFORD THAT FOLLOWED BY 20 MINUTES THE ONE I CALLED YOU ABOUT AND ALL THE REPORTS, MINE, MEDFORD, THE ONE LAST NIGHT AND THE ONE I SAW THIS MORNING. THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ THIS POST AND IF YOU KNOW ANYONE WHO CAN HELP SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS PLEASE I BEG YOU GIVE THEM MY PHONE NUMBER. I PUT IN A CALL TO R. LEO SPRINKLE TO SEE IF HE COULD SHED SOME LIGHT ON WHAT HAPPENED. ((name deleted)) EARTHQUAKE FORECASTING CONSULTANT. SALEM OREGON 503 ((number deleted))..
