series of local ghost By BERT WALL Special to the HeraldZeitung On Super Bowl Sunday in 1989 my son and a group of his college friends had gathered at our house to enjoy some festivities and watch the Super Bowl game little did we know we would also have a very special night Early in the afternoon along with two of his friends John and Corey had gone out to explore the back valley which for many years now we have called Haunted Valley It wasnt long before John found himself alone but since it isnt uncommon for explorers to take off in different directions he didnt give it a second thought But later he told us of a chilling experience As he continued walking up the creekbed he knelt down to take a closer look at a crystal rock that was glistening in the sun Sud denly an extrcmly cold chill came upon him as if he had entered a freezer box When he attempted to stand up he found some force had paralyzed him in the kneeling position Within a split second he heard something rustling along the embankment Then he saw it a large silvergrey wolf surrounded by a haze of some sort was crouched in a small clearing directly above him Suddenly the wolf leaped and passed through Johns body John felt no impact at all and at the moment wolf seemingly exited his body John was released and fell backwards and the wolf was gone He returned to the truck but felt something or some one remained within him After the Super Bowl the boys went back to San Marcos and we settled in for the night Around midnight 1 finally began to doze off but became fully alert when I heard Dad Dad 1 flipped on the bedside lamp and saw standing in the bedroom doorway His face was flushed and he was noticeably unnerved as he told me that John had gone a little crazy and insisted on coming back out to the ranch In an effort to get John to talk and Corey left us alone I asked John what was bothering him He didnt say a word but suddenly seemed to lose control of his body His arms and legs twisted in all directions as if he was doublejointed and his breathing was frightfully irregular Every now and then you could tell that he tried to regain control of his body but within seconds he would slip back into those contortions It seemed like an eternity before John calmed down Once again he fixed his eyes on the fire place and suddenly he begin to speak but the voice 1 heard was not Johns and his friend recognized it as the voice John had used in the car on the drive back to the ranch but they hadnt been able to understand the foreign language he was This time he spoke English and with this deeper much older mans voice he began describing a bloody battle between two Indian tribes It was as if he had a ringside seat and as he continued giving a blow by blow description of the battle there was no doubt that he had actually been there a spirit from the past a special night caller For some reason this Indians spirit had chosen John as a medium to relay the events of that partic ular battle and the pain he felt was visible on Johns face as he decribed every gruesome detail Appar ently the battle took place back in the early 1800s after his tribe and a rival tribe had both claimed sacred ground rights to a particular piece of land From the description I have no doubt the sacred land they fought for is within the boundaries of our Chaparral Ranch The spirit was present for five to ten minutes leaving abmptly as a gust of wind whistling across the living room and out the closed kitchen win dow John had closed his eyes and dozed off for a brief moment When he awoke he sat straight up in his chair and obviously confused by his surround ings asked what he was doing back at the ranch He had no recollection of what had happened And the night caller never returned For news
