Objects Haunt Ohio Area     

   On the 8th of December, Charles Hern, an employee at the Kyger Creek Power Plant, took his dog out for a walk along the Ohio River at about 6:30 a.m. He noticed a red light across the river and thought at first that it was merely a trapper in a boat checking his traps. As he watched, he realized his first guess was wrong, and he called his wife. The two watched the light [and] called their neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Taylor, who watched it also. Mrs. Taylor, a school teacher, got outside first and recalls that the red and orange lights were shining from an object by the river. One of the lights was directed toward the water, she said. Taylor corroborated the testimony of his wife and the Herns. The Herns said they detected small people moving to and from the object, but were visible only when near the lights.           
   Although the Taylors and Mr. Hern went back inside, Mrs. Hern remained outside for a while and watched while the lights went out and lights of another color appeared. Then, she said, the object went straight up and vanished. Hern, who said he had lived at that spot for 12 years and "I know every boat light," said this was definitely not anything he had ever seen before.
