UFO group: Truth will land in 2003

N.C. chapter suggests evidence will force government to 'fess up'

Staff Writer


SALISBURY - Even with some prompting, the crowd couldn't sing
"Happy Birthday" in unison.

Everyone gathered around the cake mumbled the group's odd name.

Even after 13 years of documenting UFO sightings in North
Carolina, many people still don't believe the mission of the
Mutual UFO Network or MUFON.

But believers will have their day - and soon, if George Fawcett
is correct.

"By the end of the year, you will see something," said the
Lincolnton resident and self-described UFO researcher. "Most
times we make a prophecy, it never happens. (But) I've never
seen so much happen in one year."

Many of the 37 people - almost all older adults - who gathered
at a Rowan County recreation center Sunday nodded solemnly.

Every three months, network members from across the state meet
to discuss UFO conventions, trade information about the latest
government coverups and talk about the day when the rest of the
world will have its eyes opened.

"We try to open up to the public to make them aware that it's
not a joke," said network State Director George Lund.

Fawcett and about a dozen others founded the N.C. chapter in
1989. The group now has about 70 members.

So why is 2003 going to be the year?

With all the sightings and information available on the
Internet, the government won't be able to hide the truth much
longer, network members say.

But can the average American middle-class consumer, soccer mom,
suburbanite handle the truth?

Those in the so-called military-industrial complex don't think
so, say network members. That's why despite more than 50 years
of what they cite as evidence -- from the Roswell, N.M., crash
of a UFO and the alleged recovery of aliens from it to crop
circles -- aliens remain only in the movies.

"It could cause mass hysteria depending on how it's revealed,"
said Charlie Aites, from Statesville.

Sound a little nutty? You're not seeing the big picture, Lund

"If (people) think it's nuts, why does the highest level of
clearance in the U.S. government deal with UFOs and aliens?"
asked Lund, who served in the Army.
