    Butch Witkowski, FFSc, Director, Founder, UFO Research Center of Pennsylvania-Editor, JAAR, Journal of Alien Abduction Research, Member Institute of Frontier Science ParaNexus™ Consultant/Advisor – Ufology Member  Académie d'Ufologie, Former MUFON Chief Investigator, Star Team Investigator, and State Section Director. Former Law Enforcement Officer. Associate - P&M Fortean Research . From Butch, "I’ve been an Independent Researcher since 1989 when I, along with 4 other people, witnessed a UFO of unbelievable size quietly hover above a mountain in Tucson, Arizona.  It was totally silent. Burn Copper in color and at least three football fields in length. It moved slowly up and down, then rose upwards, moved forward, and then vanished at lightning speed. We all agreed on what we had just seen. However, calls to the Sheriffs Dept., the news media, and the local Air Force base yielded no sighting reports. I began my own investigation into the UFO Phenomenon on that day. After joining MUFON, I was able to dig deeper into past and existing cases and pursue even more on site investigations. It was time to go about this work in a different manner, and after almost a year of serious reflection and consideration, I started the UFO Research Center of Pennsylvania in 2009 and brought together some of the best like-minded researchers I could find. We have also fielded two fully equipped mobile units and have affiliate groups in eleven states and two in Europe". www.uforcop.com

    WOI Special with Acclaimed Director, Alejandro Monteverde

    in Writing

    Welcome to BTR's featured World of Ink Network. Today, Monday March 23rd (4pm Eastern - 3pm Central - 2pm Mountain - 1pm Pacific) we have Acclaimed Director Alejandro Monteverde as our guest. He will be chatting about his newest movie LITTLE BOY (starring Kevin James, Michael Rapaport, Jakob Salvati, Emily Watson, and Ali Landry, and is produced by heavyweight TV and movie producer, Mark Burnett).  


    Set during the height of World War II, the film centers on a little boy, Pepper Flynt Busbee (Jakob Salvati), who is willing to do whatever it takes to end World War II so that he can bring his father home. Through his struggle, Pepper learns lessons of morality, such as the value of self sacrifice, how to face the town's bullies (at times hilariously depicted), the importance of racial equality, and many lessons in between.


    This heartwarming family film expertly captures feelings similar to those recognizable in so many great American movies.
