UFOs in our neck of the woods? Dust off the detectors: Around The Town

BEREA, Ohio — Those of us who find unidentified flying objects to be a topic of general interest are undoubtedly pleased that the unclassified report from the Pentagon’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force concludes that UFOs are real.

What the objects actually are remains undetermined, but at least UFO enthusiasts can now openly discuss these phenomena without fearing the kook label.

UFOs have, in fact, been an on and off topic of conversation in our area since a Cleveland resident reported seeing “A green, glowing object” which approached her car from the left side, while she was driving along Stearns Road in neighboring Olmsted Township, at 3 a.m. Oct. 1, 1975. She said the object continued over a field and appeared to land on the north side of Stearns Road.

It wasn’t long before a trio of salesmen paid a visit to residents in Berea and neighboring communities, claiming they had invented a device whose blinking and buzzing could announce the presence of UFOs.

A NASA scientist and Southwest Area resident who asked to remain anonymous because he didn’t know how his employer would react to his commenting on UFOs, said he wasn’t at all convinced that the detector, housed in a small black box with an antenna and several lights and switches, was legitimate and cautioned would-be customers to “look before buying” the $150 gadget labeled simply “The UFO Detector.”

Local consumer agencies and the Better Business Bureau, said they couldn’t speak for customer satisfaction or dissatisfaction with the detector. A BBB spokesman said his agency had never heard of the device or its inventors.

Three or four dozen of the detectors were reportedly sold to residents over a wide area of northeast Ohio, from Painesville, east to Elyria, west and south from Cleveland to Brunswick and other nearby cities.

With UFOs again at the forefront of Public perception, it might be time to retrieve those little black boxes from the attic, dust ‘em off, plug ‘em in and see what happens.

Smudge is missing: Nick Titchenell’s dog, Smudge, escaped from his parents’ house in Brook Park recently. He describes his medium-size, black-and-white pooch as highly energetic and extremely friendly with people, as well as trusting with strangers.

Smudge can also be identified by his white underbelly and the white streak over his face by his right eye. His tail and ears are not cropped. Neighbors said a black Nissan picked the dog up.

If anyone has seen Smudge, contact Nick, or his mom, Annette Titchenell.
