Heather's Corner: It's Halloween-Read If You Dare

In honor of Halloween, I am offering Oro Valley a spooktacular opportunity.

Did you know there is an organization committed to paranormal activity? The Southern Arizona Ghost and Paranormal Society ("SAGAPS") is a team of investigators with over 7 years of experience. They are are willing to assist with any of your paranormal concerns.

Currently, they have a team of four members, all passionate about seeking the truth and have made it their upmost priority to have honesty amongst them with professionalism, dedication, and confidentiality for each case.

Hector Barragan Jr. Is the founder and lead investigator. His work has been featured on the Syfy channel and his fascination with the paranormal began at a young age after watching "Poltergeist." Jim Rundel is co-founder and Tech manager. He's had several motorcycle accidents and brushes with death prompting him to investigate what lies beyond the living. Laura Ziegler is research investigator. She examines case historical evidence and understands the importance of documentation and verification with a U of A background in Psychology and a paralegal degree. Finally Nicole Amy who assists Laura with historical investigation and is herself a seasoned in investigator.

There are so many people that have inquired about hauntings that they are booked for the rest of October and November. They are always looking for new cases. Mr. Barragan shared with me.
"We have had a few residential cases in the past in Oro Valley that gave light evidence (which is usually the case), but no real hot spots. It would be great if you could lean us towards businesses or historic locations in Oro Valley to try and investigate at. Abandoned buildings, old burial sites, things like that. We are never to scared to find answers!"
SAGAPS offers no charge investigations for your home or business through audio, video, and sensor data with a complete analysis from the given location. Clients will receive discs of all data gathered and a consensus of the teams conclusion. They take evidence gathering very seriously, hoping to cross reference all levels of collected material but warn the "interviewing, researching, planning, and executing an investigation takes patience, practice, and persistence."

If you don't feel there are ghosts lurking in your closet that require their services, I still suggest checking out their website. It is loaded with featured cases, interviews, and do it yourself videos on how to build your own ghost hunting gear. That alone might be worth doing. I, however, can not watch a scary movie without every light on and my feet tucked under a blanket, so ghost hunting is a no-go for this Oro Valley resident.

Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
Heather Nenadovich has lived in Oro Valley a total of five years. She has a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Arizona. Her husband is Canadian so she is a hockey fan by default and so are her two very clever children. When not being a mommy, she enjoys hiking in Catalina State Park, hand building pottery, and gardening. Her favorite things about living in Oro Valley are the towns recognition of art and culture, their commitment to preserving nature and the Christmas parade. (Also anything from GMG Chinese Bistro.)
