An Eagle Without His Head

When I graduated from High School, I did something unusually and probably students in my class may not remember it at all. It happened 31 years ago, here’s the story:

Our mascot was the eagle. Not the real Eagle.  No did I not. People have dirty minds.

Oh well, it was the costume. No one knew I was in the Eagle Costume. I did not steal it, but I borrowed it. It was laying around in the girl’s locker room. Luckily, the girls were outside cheering for the basketball game.  It was my first time in a girl’s locker room. I did not see anything. But the shower was running. No, I did not peek. Maybe a little. I was curiosity. So, I saw it. Whew. It was big and cute. Not that big, cute, and petite.  She was our high school homecoming queen, Stacy Class; every guy wanted her. And I was the cute dorky student that no one knew. I had a picture of her in my locker. Her locker was next to mine.

I put on the costume; the costume needed to be dry clean. How could Stacy wear this costume?  I saw some air freshener nearby. I think it was air-freshener, it read “Michael Jackson’s perfume.” So, if I spray it, will it make me dance like Michael Jackson? Let’s see what happened.

I sprayed it, and the odor of the costume did not help. I grabbed a cloth, I think it was a cloth, but it will do. It was someone bra. Smell good. So, I used it as a gas mask for I could breathe fresh air and I was good. I put the head of the Eagle on, and I got the panty hose for the Eagle’s legs.

And I walked out; people were cheering for me because I was underneath the Eagle costume. I did the moon walk like Michael Jackson would do, and the audience went wild with it. Maybe the Michael Jackson perfume did work on me.

Then I heard Stacy voice from the girl’s locker room.

“Who are you? I am coming for you” Stacy said.

I turned my beak around, and I saw Stacy staring at me.

Would you believe she was wearing a cheerleader outfit without no bra and wet hair? She charged at me.  I ran around the court, and she was chasing me.  The audience was laughing and cheering for either of us.

Then I tripped, and she landed on top of my back. She flipped me over and took off my mask, and she found her bra on my face. She took that off too.

“What are you doing?” Stacy said. She was on top of me.

“I got laid?” I said, smiling. I was on the ground.

The crowd laugh. She was embarrassed.

It was hysterical.

Mitchel Lewis Dormitory at ECSU


Mitchel Lewis Dormitory

 

At Elizabeth City State University in Mitchel Lewis Dormitory, a murder happened in 1984.

It was Sharon Jones. It was a bloody murder in the spring of 1984. Sharon Jones was found dead with a white belt wrapped around her neck and tied to the frame of the bed. She was naked and face down on the floor. Beaten and strangled to death with a dumbbell that was found next to the body. Her boyfriend did the crime and he went missing. They never did find him and it is a cold case file ever since.

Now she haunts the hall of Mitchel Lewis Dormitory. Students can hear her scream in the locked room, or if the room is locked. Is someone staying in her room tonight? Watch out. You might hear her scream in horror or walk outside in the halls of Mitchel Lewis Dormitory.

If you want more information about this story, please check your library.

What’s that behind you?

 

UFO’s are out there

Did you know we had almost a lot of calls of Undefined Flying Objects, you guess it UFO’s, if you don’t believe in UFO’s they are out there. And they are searching for something? Is it you? And why do they fly over military bases? What are they looking for?

Sometime they abducted people and study you. They are trying to find out of how we live on this planet, and learned how to mate and produce baby aliens in women. When we come out from the women wombs, we do look like aliens our face looks like squish with pointed heads, and it’s easier to come out. Pointed heads.

Anyway, seriously, in Elizabeth City, NC we had a many UFO sightings. According to MUFON, Mutual UFO Network (MUFON). Back in June 2014, someone reported 3 noiseless orange/red lights in a triangular shape, moving at a slow pace. Flying lower than F-18 in flight and it was somewhere near northeastern high school.

And, another in July 2011, a white cigar-shaped with bulges near object. It was taller than trees and 4 to 5 times longer.

And recently, in March 2015, lights hovers over tree line for about a minute and then leave at a high rate of speed. Somewhere near Pitch Chapel Road.

These are incredible witness we have in our town.

If you spot a UFO use your cell phone to document it make several copies and give one to MUFON, they will document it and they will interview you. Sometime newspaper will publish the story and some time they don’t. It’s not news worthy for newspaper.

Plus I am a fan of Hangar 1 on the History Channel

Museum of the Albemarle Haunted with Fred Fearing

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Did you know that Museum of the Albemarle is haunted? With all the artifacts in buildings some spirits can attached themselves to it, but it’s the good ghost not the evil one, if you disturb the ghost, they will become evil ghost and they will be a sword fight in the middle of the room, that would never happened.

Anyway, when Fred Fearing was still alive, he was 93 when he passed away in 2007, he made a point that he would take care of the museum; they did not need a security guard. He would be a security ghost for the building, so if a burglary wants to rob a piece of artifact in building, Fred would stop them scare the living day lights  by saying “Boo” and the robbery would dropped  the artifact  and he would catch it without breaking it.

These days, if you ask the folks at Museum of the Albemarle, he’s also known as the hall of history’s resident ghost.

According to Pendergraft, Anne Burgess Jennings was working the front desk of the museum when a visitor asked directions to the bathroom. She was an out-of-towner, so she knew very little, if anything, about the local history here.

“She comes back five minutes later with a startled look,” says Pendergraft. “She told Anne that she met a man in the back hallway.”

The man was described as old with very white hair. The woman told Jennings that he had shared stories about the museum with her.

Pendergraft says the woman described the man’s baseball cap and a rose he was holding. He wore a shirt and shorts and talked about his wife Florence, and then he put his hat to his chest and told her local stories.

When the man was finished, the woman reported that he turned and walked away, disappearing at the end of the hall.

The woman, Pendergraft explains, did not know Fred Fearing, nor would she have known those details. Jennings, he says, told her that she had just described Fearing.

“The woman that was in the hallway seemed to be the only one who saw it,” recalls Jennings. “There were other people in the area. I was at the desk and there may have been someone else in the lobby.”

People that knew Fearing know that he loved history and was a big supporter of the museum. He served on the museum board and Pendergraft says Fearing would often bring things in to share with the staff.

He would also be the first to complain if he saw something that he did not believe was historically accurate. Fred Fearing was known to be ornery from time to time.

“He loved the museum. He was one of the biggest supporters of the museum, even to the last of his life,” says Pendergraft.

Although the museum building is relatively new, there have been other haunting reports there. Staff members are quick to say they’ve heard things, or even seen a thing or two.

Mary Tirak works on the third floor, in the administration offices. She says there have been plenty of reports but she hasn’t seen or heard anything. If she does, however, she says that she would be pretty unsettled.

“They all know I don’t like ghosts,” says Tirak. Jennings says the museum has been “spooky” in the past, but she just can’t put her finger on one incident outside of the Fred Fearing sighting. Of course, with a building full of old things, there’s no telling who came with the artifacts.

“There was one incident,” Pendergraft  said “The staff had put on a presentation for their annual membership meeting when archeologist Clay Swindell reported something odd. The room had emptied out except for Swindell and I and Clay saw a guy walk behind the screen,” recalls Pendergraft, who says he saw no one other than Swindell. “Clay was sure someone walked behind the screen. Being a scientist, he doesn’t make up stories. If he’s having fun with you, you know he’s having fun” Like a regular Casper the friendly ghost.

UFO sighting in Elizabeth City North Carolina

In August 1978, in Elizabeth City, NC many people in the Pasquotank county have spotted an UFO. Reports were coming from Poplar Branch, Nags Head, Nixonton, and other areas too.

L. Warrens Riggs, a probation officer for Camden and Pasquotank counties, said with two others friends saw a UFO in the community of Riddle in Camden. Riggs said Edward S. Cahoon and Elvin Gregory spotted a round, saucer – shaped object approximated 1,500 feet of the ground. The object had orange-colored lights spaced 2 feet apart. Riggs said two of the lights had a greenish tint and there was a two bright lights on top of the space craft. “All of the sudden it was coming towards us and then it stopped.” Riggs said, “It stayed for two minutes and we did not hear any noise.” Riggs said the UFO moved with great speed two miles toward the Pasquotank river, stopped for a few moments and then it continues on it course. He said he told nobody of the sighting except his wife, until he read a Sunday newspaper report. He then Colon Grandy Jr., who first reported the UFO sighting Thursday night to the Elizabeth City Coast Guard Air Station. Grandy described the object as disc-shaped about 75 yards in diameter and having 12-15 brilliant evenly-spaced orange light around its sides. He said he spotted the object after leaving a workshop at the rear of his home in Poplar beach.

Dr. S.A. Khan, professor of Biology at Elizabeth City State University said he and his wife and family sighted an object around 8:30 p.m. Thursday while visiting at a farm house renovating on Four Forks Road. Khan said the object had six oranges – blue lights that flashed on and off. He said the UFO was approximately one-half mile from their location and moved swiftly at an altitude of about 300-400 feet.

Grandy said today that he had receive at least a dozen calls from people as far away as Nags Head, saying that they had also seen similar objects on the same day and at similar times. A spoke man for the National Weather Service said it was “very unlikely” that one of its balloons could have been in the Poplar Brand area at the of the sighting.However, the Federal Aviation Administration is virtually impossible to determine if there was any airplane activity in the area at the time.

A Coast Guard spoke man indicated that the base in Elizabeth City had dispatched no aircraft at the sighting times Thursday night. The Center for UFO studies in Evanston, Ill., said that it would probably investigation of the UFO sightings in a few days. The center is headed by Dr. J Allen Hyneck, scientific director, who worked as a civilian consulted for US Air Force Project Bluebook.

The Nell Cropsey House

Nell Crop House 6 12 2013

When my niece and I went for a ghost walk tour in Elizabeth City, NC, she did not know we have hauntings in our town.  Elizabeth City is a small town and it’s the Harbor of Hospitality. The beach is an hour away, the outer banks, but in Elizabeth City, NC we have the famous Nell Cropsey house and it is still haunted to this day.

We had a guest to tell a story of the house she was Janet Klein, a good friend of mines, we worked together for Encore, a community theater volunteer in town. She was not acting when she told this story to the group. It really happened.

“There are really spirits there in that house,” says Janet Klein. Klein says she has had plenty of experience with the Cropsey house. Sitting for friends who once owned the Victorian-era home, a very beautiful house and it had a creepy feeling of the house.

“I was house-sitting for Betsy when Betsy Jones lived there,” recalls Klein.

House sitting in a haunted house? Who would do this?

“I was taking the trash out to the road. This was in the evening or so. When I was coming back from the road the light in the attic flipped on. I went upstairs, looked around and cut the light off.”

Of course, Klein was the only one in the house, so how the light came on was hard to explain. Except, perhaps, if you believe in hauntings.

“The light in the attic was really creepy,” says Klein.

“Another time, there is a vent in the front hallway,” remembers Klein. “I had the doors open, the windows open. All of the sudden a whoosh of air came out of the vent. And then another time, I was in the kitchen. I was on the phone and it rang in the other room. It’s hard for a phone to ring when you’re on the phone.”

For Klein, and her friend Betsy Jones, there were plenty of other unexplained moments in that house. They were moments that led them to believe that indeed Nell Cropsey haunts the house where she was likely murdered.

Another eyewitness guest told their story and they were Frank and Robin Caruso who lived in the house for the past 15 years and their children.  He heard of the hauntings of Nell Cropsey and he once lived in a haunted house. He thought it would be great to live in a haunted house.

Who would live in a haunted house?

“If the house was haunted it didn’t bother me because when I was growing up my house was haunted,” says Caruso.

But the notion that the house was haunted did bug her children, especially one of her sons.

“The Scariest thing happened to my son,” recalls Caruso. “It was still and it felt weird (in the house). I heard a strange noise and it was my son, trying to let out a scream. He was 15 at the time. He yelled, ‘She was here, she was here!”

When Caruso ran to her son’s bedroom, he was on his bed, “pale as a ghost” and sweating. He clung to his mother in fear.

“Fifteen-year-olds don’t cling to their mothers,” says Caruso.

Her son told her that as he was sitting on his bed,  a young beautiful girl Nell Cropsey was at the foot of the bed. Shook the bed and then she fled out of the window.

“I know he saw something because he was very scared,” said Caruso.

And there have been other incidents in that house. There have been noises, doors opening and closing when no one was there.

At night we can hear people walking up the stairs, footsteps, and light flashing in the hallway.

“If I say, ‘Nell, knock it off,’ it stops,” says Caruso.

Caruso is confident that the Cropsey house is haunted. She says Nell seems to be happy there, and that there is really nothing to be afraid of while in the house.

She says since they moved in, members of the Cropsey family — living members — have come to call the house, and one even gave the family a plate that belonged to Nell’s mother.

More hauntings, sometimes spirits of dead relatives can attach themselves to artifacts. 

You will get goosebumps and possible cold air traveling in the house, even though their air conditioner and heating was off that evening. Her presence was in the house.  My niece and I got the chills in the house and so were the rest of the groups. We felt something in the house. Creepy.
