An Oregon couple are convinced they spotted several UFOs whizzing across the sky at a rural area near Salem. Raye Laufer and her husband, Derral, say they were smoking in their back yard last month when the incident occurred. Exactly what they were “smoking” was not made specific. Regardless, while the couple was doing whatever it was they were doing, two long, silver, bullet-shaped objects flew side-by-side across the sky, they claim. The couple says that neither object had lights or made a sound before they vanished. And that’s not all.

UFOs Are Real; Bigfoot Is A Hoax

An Oregon couple are convinced they spotted several UFOs whizzing across the sky at a rural area near Salem.

Raye Laufer and her husband, Derral, say they were smoking in their back yard last month when the incident occurred. Exactly what they were “smoking” was not made specific. Regardless, while the couple was doing whatever it was they were doing, two long, silver, bullet-shaped objects flew side-by-side across the sky, they claim.

The couple says that neither object had lights or made a sound before they vanished.

And that’s not all.

The Laufers also claim to have seen a large glowing orb floating above the Cascade foothills before it hovered over their home and then took off into the unknown.

Although the only evidence we have of the incident is the word of the Laufers, we absolutely back the claim. The writing staff at NewWest.Net/Bend are firm believers in life on other planets and inter-space travel. To claim for certain that UFOs are a hoax would be like claiming we have discovered all the microorganisms that live in the oceans of our fine planet. Humankind simply doesn’t know enough about space, or the oceans, to make a judgment one way or the other.

Is it possible there is life on other planets? Yes. The same as it’s possible there are forms of life on this planet still not discovered.

However, one creature that does not exist on this planet is Bigfoot. The Sasquatch story is the biggest bag of untruth ever told. Unless, of course, you count religion.

Enjoy the weekend.

Book Festivals of the West 2011

Each year readers and writers gather to celebrate the written word at book festivals, fairs, and writing conferences throughout the West. Although there are a few spring festivals, everything really begins to pick up in June, and the schedule remains busy through November. The offerings vary from those that concentrate on helping writers improve their craft, such as the Lighthouse Writers Workshop's retreat in Grand Lake, Colo. (July 10th-15th), to those that introduce writers to readers through panels, readings, and book signings, such as the Montana Festival of the Book in Missoula (October 5th-7th). Some, such as the Aspen Summer Words Festival (June 19th-24th), combine workshops and readings. The workshops charge fees, but plenty of the festivals are free to attend, including the Montana Festival of the Book in Missoula and the Equality State Book Fair in Casper. Most workshops are already accepting applications for this year. I've updated the Book Festivals of the West map with this year's information when it was available. Please let me know if there are any more events to add or update—I'll even throw this open for events in California and Texas. New West will run reports from the festivals again this year—we already have correspondents lined up for the Jackson Hole Writers Conference, Aspen Summer Words, and the Montana Festival of the Book, and are looking for more contributors.

  1. I agree that their are species on this planet that have not yet been discovered, and who know whats at the bottom of the ocean?

    I also agree that Sasquatch is a fake…

  2. Is this a news article, or an opinion piece? What a crock of hack writing. Have you EVER looked into REAL BigFoot research, or just going on assumptions and opinions of others you’re read? Have you considered interviewing real people who have ACTUALLY seen a Sasquatch before?

    This was a very sad attempt at journalism.

    State and use ‘facts’: don’t spew opinion and call it something else.

  3. Obviously this “journalist” failed in some courses. Is this an opinion piece or journalism. To state such, without stating facts, and if he did HIS research, or perhaps have the integrity to go out into the field, then he would have to say such.

    Besides what physical evidence do we have that UFO’s exist? Except a few wild stories which the government always has a convinient expalination for.

    There is a multitude of Squatch evidence out there. But this is not a Mainstream Media journalist…he’s a “Blamestream” one.

  4. Maybe I don’t know the difference between fact and opinion, but let me just throw this out there: It is pretty apparant to me that based on the tone of the story, this is a humorous opinion piece, more blog-like than ‘traditional’ journalism…which, is ONE element that makes New West different than other media outlets….helloooooo! That’s partly why we like it: investigatory stories AND funny, blog stories.

    Hey Mike, why so butt sore over Sasquatch? Should we interview you as a witness over its existence?

    Thanks for the ‘spew’ Joesph!

  5. I’m going to paraphrase a bit:

    “Many witnesses claim to have seen a large primate walking in the Cascades before turning away and then taking off into the unknown.

    Although the only evidence we have of these incidents is the word of the witnesses, we absolutely back the claims. The writing staff at NewWest.Net/Bend, along with primatologists like Jane Goodall, are firm believers in the possibility of an undiscovered species. To claim for certain that sasquatch is a hoax would be like claiming we have discovered all the microorganisms that live in the oceans of our fine planet. Humankind simply doesn’t know enough about space, the forests, or the oceans, to make a judgment one way or the other.

    Is it possible there is a North American temperate primate? Yes. The same as it’s possible there are other forms of life on this planet still not discovered.

    However, one creature that does not exist on this planet is a NewWest.net/Bend journalist named Joseph who can navigate a simple topic of species discovery. His sad excuse for a story is the biggest bag of untruth ever told.

    Enjoy the weekend.”

    There, that sounds better.

  6. what college did this zero graduate from? The problem is that they’ll let anyone write these days. this ain’t writing however. figure it out

  7. Maybe the wookie is the missing link between the Sasquatch and Aliens.

  8. I know UFOS are real and anyone out there who does not believe has screw loose fore there are to many reports and I have one to prove it it landed and all three grays were killed by wolves and when I came across them the last one was being attacked so I killed the wolves and buried the three of the. The ship they were in I have and no country will ever get it fore there is enough fire power on this ship to destroy this planet so all unbelievers you better start to open your eves.
