Paranormal Investigators Dig "Beneath The Surface" At the Chattanooga Public Library On Friday

Saturday, March 2, 2013

Join other ghost hunters at the Chattanooga Public Library, on Friday, at 7 p.m. to learn of new paranormal findings at the Downtown Library.

Global Paranormal Services first visited the Downtown Library last spring, to conduct research as a prelude to the library’s Teen Summer Reading program “Own the Night.”  Intriguing discoveries were revealed in June and researchers felt that further study was warranted. “This year our Teen Summer Reading Program ‘Beneath the Surface’ kicks-off in May,” said Della Phipps, Teen librarian. “Digging deeper into the mysterious results of last year’s event seemed like a fun way to build excitement for our upcoming program.”  Last summer participating teens read 1,503 books during the library’s eight-week program.

“Keeping it quiet has been killing us, we've seen, heard, and experienced things in the Chattanooga Public Library that we've never found before,” said Robert Groover, investigator for Global Paranormal Services.  “Some of the evidence has been sent to a New York forensic lab and they have confirmed the photos are of a paranormal nature.”

The latest reveal will be held on the fourth floor, the site of a current photograph on the Global Paranormal Services website, http://www.globalparanormal.org/photo-album/apparition.  Investigators will show previously unseen photographs, video and sound recordings of what researchers believe to be paranormal activity.

“I went on both hunts, and this last time, I felt there was another presence following us around the building,” said Mrs. Phipps. “Someone reported hearing balls bouncing up on the fourth floor that night and there was nothing there, no one who could have been bouncing balls.” 

The Downtown Library is at 1001 Broad Street. For more information, contact Della Phipps at 643-7700, or by email at Phipps_d@lib.chattanooga.gov.

Conserving White Flight To Private, Public Secluded Schools Is Shameful

If you really care about the kids of Hamilton County’s most distressed schools, then you’ll take help where you can get it. The question on your mind isn’t which political label someone wears. Anyone who shifts attention away from the critical issues facing public education and toward political labels is not really committed to public education. Their support for equitable, quality ...
