Town wants UFO memorial moved; man objects

Hawaii Tribune Herald - - NEWS -

SH­EFFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A memorial in a re­mote cor­ner of Mas­sachusetts that marks a 1969 UFO sight­ing has been or­dered moved, but one man who ex­pe­ri­enced a close en­counter is ob­ject­ing.

The 5,000-pound memorial in Sh­effield was in­stalled in 2015, but was moved about 30 feet a few weeks later when it was dis­cov­ered it was on town land.

Now, Town Ad­min­is­tra­tor Rhonda LaBom­bard tells The Berk­shire Ea­gle it has to be moved again be­cause it’s on a town right of way ease­ment.

That’s not sit­ting well with Thom Reed. He was 9 when he, his mother, grand­mother and brother saw what he de­scribed as a “self-con­tained glow” that flooded their car with an am­ber light. About 40 peo­ple in sev­eral sur­round­ing towns re­ported the strange light.

Reed is threat­en­ing le­gal ac­tion.
