- I am asking for the support of the public to sign a petition

signature online at: http://www.signpetition.com. You can also print off
hard copies of the petition to circulate for signatures, and return to

- On March 3, 2003, Larry Landsman, Director, Special Projects,
SCI FI Channel, and Leslie Kean, an independent journalist and Research
Director of the Coalition for Freedom of Information(CFI) arrived in Greensburg.
They had the opportunity to visit the Kecksburg area, talk with a number
of first hand witnesses who were involved in the incident, and discuss
my findings.They also announced their support for the statewide petition
drive that I am launching to help put public pressure on the Pennsylvania
congressional delegation to request an investigation of the Kecksburg incident
by the U.S. General Accounting Office.
- The CFI with the support of the SCI FI Channel, is spearheading
a Freedom of Information Act effort to declassify government documents
about the Kecksburg incident. This effort has the support of John Podesta,
President Clinton's former Chief of Staff. For more information on
- this initiative,which runs parallel to but independent

- Late afternoon on December 9, 1965, a fiery object streaked
across the sky creating much excitement as it passed over the Pittsburgh
and Greensburg, Pennsylvania area. That object, whatever it was, fell in
a wooded area on the outskirts of Kecksburg in Westmoreland County. I was
sixteen at the time of the occurrence and I have been pursuing information
concerning this unsolved incident since it occurred.
- The official explanation of a meteor doesn't fit the
eyewitness accounts of the object slowly descending towards the woods,
first hand accounts from people who saw an unusual metallic acorn shaped
object s emi-buried in the ground, and the quick response by the military.
My search for answers regarding the Kecksburg incident is now intensifying
with the support of the SCI FI Channel and the Coalition for Freedom of
- For individuals who don't have access to a computer,
copies of the petition can be obtained by calling me at 724-838-7768, or
write to me at P.O. Box 936, Greensburg, PA 15601. I would also like to
hear from anyone with information concerning this event.
