Sherman, TX. Police Officers and People in Neighborhood See UFO Flying Above Power Lines (Please do not share my identity, email, etc. with anyone.) (I am unsure of exact date, time, and duration.)

My husband & I heard the following, on the police scanner we have.

Officers from the "Sherman Police Department" (Sherman, TX.) were dispatched to a neighborhood, because their were sightings of something "strange" in the air.

One officer said, "Does this sound for real?" Someone (I think the dispatcher) said, "That neighborhood is a very good neighborhood. Those people wouldn't be calling if there wasn't something there." (She said it was the "(?something) HILLS" addition.

We heard the responses of the officers as they arrived. They were VERY excited and a female officer said, "My GOD !!! What IS that thing. I have never seen anything like this before in my life. It's moving just above the power lines." The officers were then talking back and forth (I guess to the dispatcher.) Then, a man came on and said in a very quick, firm voice, "Cease talking NOW!!!!!!" Everything went quiet. (We think they may have gone to a different frequency or something, so they couldn't be heard.

`````````` Shortly after filing the above report, I remembered that the name of the addition that the police dispatcher stated over the police scanner was: a word that was a "directional" name.

i.e., the first word, before HILLS addition" was (either, Western, Northern, Southern, Eastern) There is a "WESTERN HILLS addition" in Sherman.

(As far as I am aware, and have been able to find, there is NO, Northern Hills addition, Southern Hills addition, or Eastern Hills addition.

And, being a local (I live in Denison, which is right next to Sherman. I was born and raised in Denison, and I am (about) 55 years old. So in other words, I have been a local for a very long time and I am very familiar with the street names and addition (subdivision) names, of Sherman, as well.) I am quite certain that the name the police stated was: "WESTERN HILLS addition".

(It is also worth noting that, she said: "That is a very nice neighborhood.") "WESTERN HILLS addition", (which is, west, of downtown) is the "newer" addition, in Sherman.

(The other areas in Sherman, areas in the north, south, east , these areas are close to the downtown area, and they are the "older" part of Sherman.

(That is where the "older" homes are.) "WESTERN HILLS addition" (The homes are newer in that area, and, having gone down some of the roads in that area before, I am aware that some of the paved streets in that housing addition, are "hilly".) I am quite certain (actually, very certain), that the sighting(s) occurred at the "WESTERN HILLS addition" (The reason I did not catch the "first" word she stated is: I was not expecting to hear a report regarding, "something "strange" in the air being seen by people living in the neighborhood." (Had I known, that was what I was "about" to hear, I'm sure I would have paid more attention to what the "first" word was, that the police dispatcher stated.) But I did recall, that the first word she called the subdivision was, the same word as a, "directional" name.

(western, or northern, or eastern, or southern) As far as I am aware, there isn't even another addition(subdivision) in Sherman, that even has word, "HILLS" in it.

Except for: "WESTERN HILLS addition" 1. I know for a fact that the police dispatcher stated, "(something) HILLS addition" 2. I later recalled that the first word she stated was, the same as a "directional" name.

(So, was either: Western, Eastern, Southern, Northern) (I have never heard of a eastern hills addition, southern hills addition, northern hills addition, in Sherman.) But I have heard of (and am familiar where the area is), of: "WESTERN HILLS addition".

4. Police dispatcher stated: That the "(something) HILLS addition", "is a nice neighborhood.

Those people wouldn't be saying there was something there, if there wasn't." "WESTERN HILLS addition", are newer built homes (than in the other areas of Sherman, the older parts.

Eastern, northern, southern parts of the city.) Everything points to: Where the sighting(s) occurred at was: "WESTERN HILLS addition" (Like I said, I am familiar with the different parts of Sherman.

I know what the houses look like in that area, but to give you an estimate of what the houses go for over there, on a realty site, it lists some for 173,000; 200,000(something); etc.) It is a, "nice neighborhood" (phrase the police dispatcher used, in her statements over the police radio.)
