    Established A.D. 2000, March 19. Now in our seventh calendar year!

Please note that Sanford magician Harry Wise will not be performing at Charlie Carlson's summer camp for kids as mentioned in "La Floridiana" in PCR #320 due to conflicts with his schedule. We apologize for any inconvenience this oversight may have caused.

Attached is a link to the National UFO Reporting Center of the mysterious stationary pulsating light that my brother-in-law Tommy Winnett and I, William Moriaty, saw on April 1, 2006 from his residence at High Rock Lake in Davidson County, North Carolina, outside of Lexington.
