Weird Fresno asks, what would you like to see on the site?

I'm always trying to expand the subject material that I write about here on Weird Fresno. But lately I've been thinking about what you dear reader would like to see on here. Now don't think this is due to me running out of ideas, as I haven't. In fact I'm working on two book reviews as well as getting ready for a trip up to Sierra Sky Ranch next weekend so I'm pretty busy.


But I wonder if there is anything specific anyone would like me to write about. Perhaps there's a book you'd like me to review, maybe talk about a famous haunting or UFO sighting. Maybe there is someone in the paranormal field you'd like me to interview, either local or national. Hell maybe there's a local haunting, UFO sighting, or creature sighting that I may not know about. If you want to see something, leave a comment. Just make sure it's possible. Don't ask me to investigate the Stanley Hotel in Colorado (the inspiration for Steven King's The Shining) cause given my current finances, it's not feasible. But if you want me to interview a local paranormal group, that's possible. Don't be afraid to ask, just be reasonable is all.

Also, pay attention to both my Facebook and Twitter feed as I start posting information on my investigation up at Sierra Sky Ranch on October 15. Going to be live tweeting and posting on Facebook when I'm there. And if things work out right I may be able to stream some live video. So keep an eye out for that. And I don't say this much, but thank you for taking the time out of your day/night to read my articles. It always makes me feel good when someone compliments me on my work and I'm glad to know that people out there enjoy reading my stories as much as I enjoy writing them. Thank you.

Investigate the underground bases here Fresno that Jeffrey Gonzales of the Sanger Paranormal Society talks about. According to him, there is one just north of Fresno, one just east of Fresno and one under the Fresno airport.

This may be of interest to you. I know of two police officers in the city of Lindsay California who have seen a strange dog like creature which they claim to possibly be the chucacabra. The two officers had seen the purported creature while working two different shifts. However the location of where these two officers observed this creature was near the same area of the city. One of the officers is a K-9 handler and was certain what he had witness was not a dog. I am not sure if those officer would be willing to talk but it maybe something to look in to.

Investigate the Fresno Hotel. It is said to be haunted and there will be renovation beginning soon. This is prime time for spirits to be active. Also, we need more info on the paranormal history of this grand hotel.

First off I want to thank everyone for the comments. Glad to know people are interested in what I do.

Regarding the underground base, Jeff is the only one that I've heard talk about it. Usually I need to hear several different accounts for me to consider writing about a story. I would love to hear from these "anonymous sources" for myself. I'll be honest, I don't believe there's anything under the airport. I know several associates both in the Air Force and Air National Guard that have been at the airport and the only thing underground is a small bunker. That being said I'm still following Jeff on what he does with this. But I want some sort of proof Just because one person says it's true, doesn't make it so. Rule #3: Never believe what you are told, double check.

Definitely interested in talking to the Lindsay officers. Any chance you can put them in touch with me? Both my e-mail address and phone number are on the front page. Accounts from officers always intrigue me as they are highly trained observers/investigators and for them to say something is out of the ordinary then it definitely deserves a closer look.

What's the story behind the Fresno Hotel being haunted? This is the first I've heard of it being associated with any paranormal activity of any sorts. Would definitely love to hear what you know.

Michael, I know who the two officers are, because I used to work with them in a joint city task force. I am not to sure they want there names to be known about this strange creature they purportedly witnessed. I will try to speak to them and get more information if I can for you. I do know that they described this four legged creature as being dog like, however if was large in stature. The creatures muzzle was extremely elongated and the creature's teeth were rather large and unusual for a domestic dog. They stated that the creature did not have a shaggy coat for fur, rather it was more skin like, like a pig. I do have more info, however I do not want to write a novel on here.

I completely understand about them wanting to be anonymous and would honor their wishes if they wish to not be known.

Shoot me an e-mail if you want. Almost sounds like you are describing an animal with mange but I don't want to jump to any conclusions before hearing everything.

I'm new to Fresno but I've already heard about the local legend of the "Goat Man of the Rainbow Ballroom", I wonder if there might be room for some local stories that have lingered over the years. Also, it might be interesting to talk to local Native American tribal elders to see if they have any local legends or stories. An article on the local "Botanicas" or Mexican spiritualist WalMart would be cool too.

I have heard, from a good source, that there are reports of activity on the 3rd floor. Not quite sure of the history of this particular haunting, but I would love to find out. I am working on aquiring corraborating information.

The fresno hotel is haunted, ive been in there and alot of folks i know have been in there. Some have become believers because of that place. Ive heard about the 3rd floor being most active, but the whole place is entirely eerie at night, even in the day sometimes.
