Paranormal finds

Ohio Ghost Gals tell their story at the library

By Monty Siekerman
What equipment does it take to root out a ghost, discover an apparition, find an ethereal being? Stacy Perkins can tell you. She spoke at the Ada Public Library on Saturday morning, telling of paranormal finds that she and three other Ghost Gals from Lima have discovered the past six years.

To search out paranormal activity one needs a Boo Bear, a stuffed animal that reads room temperature and movement as well as talks, trying to get the ghost to talk back. Put a recorder by Boo Bear’s feet and you’ve capture what the ghost says. 

Ohio Ghost Gals at the Ada Library Saturday

The Ohio Paranormal Ghost Gals will present a program on their paranormal investigations when they speak at the Ada Public Library on Saturday. The Lima women, known as Ghost Gals, will talk about their findings, how they investigate paranormal occupancies, and what equipment they use at the 11 a.m. program.
