  • Walton to speak about UFO experience

    On Nov. 5, 1975, a group of loggers in the mountains of northeastern Arizona observed an unusually bright light in the sky. One of those men, Travis Walton, left the safety of the work truck to take a closer look. As he walked toward the light of the strange, luminous object, he was blasted back violently by a bolt of powerful energy.
    Fearing Walton was dead, the remaining crew members fled in the truck. When they returned later to check on him, he was nowhere to be found. The crewmen then reported the UFO encounter and Walton’s disappearance to local authorities, only to be suspected of murder.

    There’s at least one restaurant that stays open past 8 p.m. — the Aspen Grill. Having the hankering for dinner after 8 p.m. one Friday night, it seemed like the perfect place to get a bite.
