Investigating for a causePosted Tuesday, January 11, 2011, at 9:45 PM
In looking at stories today for Wednesday's paper, I ran across this one. There wasn't room for it to run in print, unfortunately, but I wanted to call attention to it.
The group Paranormal Science Lab has been doing more than just investigating. It is helping keep an antebellum home open to tourists.
Kendrick Place is one of only a few structures in the Carthage area to survive the Civil War. Paranormal Science Lab has been helping by leading historic tours of the site, then offering tourists the chance to stay with the team for an overnight investigation. So far, the tours have raised more than $1,700 to keep the site operational.
I think what Paranormal Science Lab is doing is great. Not only are they advancing paranormal investigation field, they are helping preserve history and promote tourism at the same time. I've known teams to do fundraising activities for charities, but I like how this group has taken their expertise and turned it into something to benefit the community.
Take a minute to read the story, and check out www.paranormalsciencelab.com. And, if you're going to be in the Carthage area, check out the tour! The rates look reasonable and the group appears to take a very scientific approach to investigating, which I like.
