I could not believe it when I read this item in the Eugene, Oregon Register Guard. Alex Jones Infowars picked up the story:
Oregon Teachers Traumatized by Unannounced Shooter Drill Alex Jones’ Infowars: There’s a war on for your mind!: Panic erupted on Friday at Pine Eagle Charter school in rural Oregon when two masked men carrying handguns burst into a teachers’ lounge and opened fire.
After the initial chaos, the terrified teachers realized the guns were firing blanks and that they were the subject of an unannounced shooter drill.
The little school in Halfway, Oregon was having an in-service day, so the children were at home at the time of the drill. The terrifying action has drawn criticism from many but Principal Cammie DeCastro has defended it, saying, ”For us not to know how we were going to respond is leaving us open”.
Much is strange about this! Why in such a small, out of the way school in rural Oregon? Whose idea, at the top, was this? What if one or more staff members were armed — concealed weapons carrier, for example – and opened fire in defense? What if someone had a heart attack or some other medical emergency response to the drill? Do “they” know something (predictive programming?) about this school and area others don’t? Are “they” planning something?
Yes, they succeeded in planting those oily ugly seeds of paranoia within us. Plans are being considered for “volunteer” community members to “watch over the school in shifts” and “arm teachers”:
The district’s Safety Committee and the School Board now will critically evaluate policies and procedures and decide what to do next, said DeCastro.
Armed teachers is one possible outcome, she said. Or the district may get armed and trained volunteers from the community to watch over the school in shifts, she said. Tougher doors and better locks are other options.
The article ends with this confusing sentence:
Had one of the teachers in that lounge already taken the time to prepare, the unannounced drill could have had tragic results.
Wait. If at least one of the teachers had been prepared, the drill would have had “tragic results?” Is there a typo, am I missing something, or is this intentionally confusing?
Clues in Location?
Returning to the location of the school: Halfway, in the Wallowa Mountains in Eastern Oregon, has a population of 288. Halfway’s history is interesting, as reported by OregonLive.com, which has a slightly fleshier article that’s bascially the same as the abridged version on Infowars:
Halfway, population 288, is the eastern Oregon ranching town that became world-famous 13 years ago as the globe’s first “Internet city.” The city council changed Halfway’s name to Half.com in return for $73,000 from a Philadelphia-based Internet bazaar of the same name that sold books, CDs, movies and the like on-line at half price.
The town got its old name back a year later when the on-line bazaar was sold to eBay. Now Halfway is back in the real world, where people sometimes enter schools and open fire.
Is Halfway “owned” by eBay, or a company in Philadelphia?
The OregonLIve article quotes a Ms. Gover, one of the teachers:
“We are so remote,” Gover said, “we are going to have to take care of ourselves.”
The message is . . . well, doesn’t seem to be a message. I’ve had telepathic communications with UFOs and “aliens.” Nothing profound however. Or even silly, as in, no alien ever wanted to exchange pancakes recipes. All they did was say, in each encounter, “We’re here!” Literally. Just letting me know they know that I know that they’re about. Often verified by other witnesses, so, nice of “them” to confirm and not have me think I’m crazy. But after that, nothing. No Space Visitor messages of universal love, no gentle chidings to start healing the planet before it’s too late, no pedantic monologues about the workings of energy, vibrations, and how the flying saucer engines work.
Life long experiences, going back to childhood. Shared events; such as with my husband. (His, also going back to childhood.) Messages of personal confirmation. Why haven’t I been told of cures for illness or given a message to spread to all of humanity? What about my recipe for pancakes? But maybe the message is — as indeed I’ve been told many times by these invisible entities – that the “message” is, simply, their existence.
They are here. That’s not debatable. What more do you want?
The above image came out pixalated like this; except it was more of a black dot. Immediately became pixalated when I tried to get a closer look by zooming in. I took it with a funky digital camera; a cheapo I bought on sale a few years ago at Radio Shack.
When I took the picture, I was just randomly taking shots of the sky. A few birds up there, but that was it. I didn’t see anything unusual in the sky at all; no UFOs, oddly shaped planes or craft, etc. (And I’m always hoping, of course!)
Got home, uploading the images. And this pixalated thing showed up. I’ve tried to get a clearer image; changing size, color, ratio, and so on but nothing. And I’m no camera expert, by any means.
So if anyone has any idea what this is — and my mind is going towards a cloaked craft of some kind, although, don’t get excited, it’s likely a government monitoring device — I welcome your opinions.
Yesterday, I posted a link at The Orange Orb to Mike Clelland’s blog post “I now know.” He “came out” and these two earlier posts of his give the context: Sleeping Under the Stars, and Line on a map across Southern Utah.)
I mentioned to Mike earlier that I had read his post about sleeping under the Utah skies, and, in a good example of denial/dancing (or scrambling) inside that loop, didn’t see the obvious. And as to my own life — and Jim’s — we still aren’t seeing the obvious.
So read the two posts Clelland has at his blog.
It’s blogs such as Mike Clelland’s, >Lucetia Heart, Jeremy Vaeni, and many others, that are the important stuff in UFOlogy. The “folk,” the witnesses, the experiencers, contactees, abductees, whatever label — the encounters presented just as they are, just as they’ve been experienced, by the ones who’ve experienced them. All of us are just trying to find out what happened. We journey through in various ways, but, in my experience (personal communications, intuitive feelings, shared or similar experiences, etc.) all of us are honest and clear in what we share with others.
At long last, the annual UFO conference line-up in McMinnville has been announced. And it’s a good one! George Knapp, my favorite “MSM” UFO reporter and C2C host, will be a presenter. As will Nick Pope, Linda Moultan Howe, and abductee/contactee Jim Sparks.
We’re already booked, but I was sad to find Comfort Inn booked solid, so we ended up in another chain motel, one which does not have the best of reviews. Staying at Hotel Oregon got old — while their rooftop bar is wonderful, and the place itself worth visiting for its overall joyful vibe and neat artwork everywhere, staying in their cramped rooms is not for me. Sharing a bath with someone was not a good experience either; creepy sloppy drunks hogging up the bathroom, making all kinds of noise, and leaving it a mess — gross. And management didn’t give a damn. Service was surreal — one wait person, a woman, actually said to us “Do you want to make something out of it?” when we complained about the half hour wait and cold — I mean, ice cold — food. Oh well. Still a good place to hang out and have one of their great beers.
Back to the conference. Looking forward to this one! We didn’t go last year, first one we missed in about five years. So am glad to know I’ll be returning this year.

I’m an earthquake junkie, checking the earthquake maps throughout the day. Anyone who’s looked at the activity, whether on a daily or weekly basis, has noticed that things have been very active for awhile, including all along the west coast. Oregon has had earthquakes recently, off shore as well as inland. There was a 4.3 on the 3rd of this month 234 miles from the coastal town of Waldport.
ZenHaven reports on ’silent earthquakes’ occurring in Washington and Oregon:
Parts of Washington and Oregon are in the midst of silent earthquakes this week. You can’t feel this so-called “slow slip” quake and it doesn’t cause damage. Still, scientists want to learn more about the recently discovered phenomenon.
Little is certain so far, but there’s a possibility these deep tremors could trigger a damaging earthquake or serve as a warning bell for the Big One.
