On The Fringe

with Director Kelly

  • Lavender is Seasonal, but Cults are Forever: A Day Trip to Kirtland - “I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it’s very difficult to find anyone” – Gandalf In mid-July 2022, I had a chance to catch up with some TV (thanks second round of Covid). One show I’d heard a lot about was Hulu’s Under the Banner of Heaven.... Continue Reading →
  • The Haunted South Main Street School Experience - “PARANORMAL FIRM FORCED TO RELOCATE” My stomach queasily flip-flopped when I saw the tagline on the July 8, 2022, WNWO Toledo 6 o’clock news release. The feeling only worsened after watching their short report—who would have believed so many inaccuracies could be spewed in less than five minutes? “This,” I thought, “is why you should...

  • Haunting Memories ~ New Fun at the Old Sandusky Mall - My paranormal group, Fringe Paranormal, is based in Toledo, Ohio. This is fine; there are many allegedly haunted places in and around The Glass City. The problem is that I am the only group member to live an hour away from Toledo. Usually, the drive there when I’m pumped about an investigation is not bad.... Continue Reading →
  • High Strangeness Homing Device Part 2 ~ Malabar Farm - If you read my last article, you know that in July of 2021, I decided to take a trip to Mohican Castle in Loudonville, Ohio. Previous visits to Loveland and Squire’s Castles had (has) me wanting more. By sheer luck (or by my finely-tuned homing device), I found the two most haunted parts of the... Continue Reading →
  • High Strangeness Homing Device Part 1 ~ Landoll’s Mohican Castle - “This bugs me the worst. That’s when the husband thinks that the wife knows where everything is, huh? Like they think the uterus is a tracking device. He comes in: “Hey, Roseanne! Roseanne! Do we have any Cheetos left?” Like he can’t go over and lift up the sofa cushion himself.” — Roseanne BarrI remember... Continue Reading →
  • Frogman Redemption ~ Summer Trip 2020 Part 2 - “Hope is a good thing. Maybe the best of things, and good things never die” – Andy Dufresne in The Shawshank Redemption Driving downhill on a long, twisty, one-lane road through the woods is usually a sure sign that you’re in a horror movie. Or a Grimm’s fairy tale. I was making my way to... Continue Reading →
  • What Would Tony Do? ~ Summer Trip 2020 Part 1 - Everyone has a reason for doing what we do. I share one of my whys for day tripping in this latest story - What Would Tony Do?
  • Everything Old is New Again ~Put-In-Bay 2019 Part 3 - Fellow paranormal investigators, remember the first time you went on an investigation? Whether it was a residential home, a business, or a well-established paranormal hotspot, you arrived at the location buzzing with excitement, ready to have an extraordinary experience, and then…equipment set-up. For non-ghost hunters, set-up sounds something like this: Where are the outlets? Do... Continue Reading →
  • By The Book ~ Put-In-Bay 2019 Part 2 - As I eluded to in Part 1 of this series, if you ask most Northern Ohio locals to describe what comes to mind when they think of Put-in-Bay, they would probably say, “Par-TAY!” What I think, though, is “Nine years. Who else has been able to investigate an island for nine years?” Yes, we became... Continue Reading →
  • There’s No Place Like Home ~Spring Break 2020 - “Can you see it? Is it moving? Well? Is it?” — My friends and I circa 1975 Last year on my Spring Break, I traveled four hours from Northern Ohio to Southern Ohio to visit the infamous ghost town areas of Moonville Tunnel and Hope Furnace. The one-day trip was such a blast that I... Continue Reading →
  • Who Ya Gonna Call? Put-in-Bay 2019 (Part 1) - It's a special occasion when Fringe Paranormal starts its annual Put-in-Bay investigation on trick-or-treat night!
  • My Sweet Synchronicity - As I watched Hellier on Amazon Prime, I couldn't help by think of a trip I took where a series of events led me to an outcome I would never have imagined possible...
  • “On the Fringe” -The Highway to Helltown - “The fact that there’s a highway to hell and only a stairway to heaven says a lot about anticipated traffic numbers” _Anonymous. Hello, all! It’s been a minute since I’ve written a blog about my thoughts and experiences as a paranormal enthusiast. I’m not sure why I tapered off a few years ago. I think... Continue Reading →
  • “On The Fringe” – Over Exposed - So, I’m scrolling through Facebook today when I see the headline:  “Paranormal Investigator Exposed to Fake Activity of Ghosts”.  Oh the outrage!  You mean a ghost didn’t really move that ball on command?  Shocking! And I think to myself…really?  Really we’re surprised?  The paranormal field has taken a huge turn since back in the day... Continue Reading →
  • “On The Fringe” ~ Never Forget the Urban Legend - First of all, no, this title is not some type of sinister warning.  It’s more like a lecture.  Sorry, kids.  It’s still May and school’s not out yet! So picture this.  It’s Saturday, and lo and behold you have no plans.  If you’re like me (and you have to kind of be, right?  Or why... Continue Reading →
  • “On The Fringe” Things That Made Me Go Hmmmmm…2014 Edition -  Happy New Year 2015! Or close to it, I hope! The laptop that I started this post on had to go to the computer hospital, so I’m attempting to use a different device. New year, new technology I guess. That should be a resolution or something for this non-techie person… Fringe had a great 2014. We... Continue Reading →
  • “On The Fringe”~Kids and the Paranormal -     It’s August.  I can almost hear all you parents:  “It’s time for the kids to go back to school! Yay!”  I’m moving classrooms this year, so I’ve already been planning for the new school year for a while.  I’ve been teaching Kindergarten for 18 years and have learned there’s an art to setting up...

  • “On The Fringe” Why Cemeteries? - It’s a beautiful July day today. By my definition, that means it’s not stifling hot with 100% humidity. A perfect day for a walk. Luckily for me I live just a few blocks away from the famous Milan Cemetery. Well, maybe not “famous” famous, but if you look on any Haunted Ohio site you’ll see... Continue Reading →
  • “On The Fringe” ~ To Believe or Not To Believe - Once upon a time, the Fringe team was called upon to help a homeowner who felt she was experiencing paranormal activity. This woman was very thorough; she had logs and journals and pictures. One group of photos that stood out to me was of a mirror she had found on the property. “Every time we... Continue Reading →
  • “On The Fringe” ~ What’s Really Scary -   I’ve been asked many times “Aren’t you afraid you’ll bring a spirit home with you when you go out on a ghost hunt?”  No, I’m not.  Why not?  Well, I break it down by the different types of haunts.  A residual haunt is one where the spirit does the same thing over and over,...

  • “On The Fringe” – Cool Places I’ve Been: Ybor City, Florida - Somewhere around February, 2012, I decided I was going to take a trip to Florida for my “milestone” birthday that summer. Mainly it was because my mom and dad already have a place in Florida, therefore lodging would be cheap. Also, as all paranormal enthusiasts know, the St. Augustine Lighthouse (in St. Augustine FL., of... Continue Reading →
  • On The Fringe – “The Beauty of a Multiple Night Investigation” - Co-Director Kelly’s Blog     I felt very TAPs-like last weekend.  My team, Fringe Paranormal, and our sister team, Weston Paranormal, completed a two-night, three- location investigation complete with overnight accommodations.  We were on an island that had just finished up their summer party season.  Most of the businesses were closed or in the process of...

  • On The Fringe – “Get a Tech Guy!” - Co-director Kelly’s Blog      Every paranormal group has one, right?  The guy who can turn an ordinary old digital camera into a full-spectrum camera.  The person who says, “I LOVE evidence review!”  We’ve had those people in our group.  Unfortunately, we don’t have one right now. To be fair, everyone in our group is reasonably... Continue Reading →
  • “On the Fringe” My Start in the Paranormal - Introduction Part Two ~ “Finally Fringe”             So how does one get from reading books and watching TV into an actual paranormal group?  Well for me it went something like this:  It was a February evening in 2007.  I’m not sure if MySpace was around , but Facebook wasn’t yet mainstream, so I... Continue Reading →
  • “On the Fringe” – Introduction to Me -        First of all, to be perfectly honest, I am starting this blog because of sibling rivalry in a dream.  Really Mom?  My brother could be a good writer?  I was the kid who was always reading!   I’M the one that always wanted to be an author!  Then The Universe told me to act upon...

  • “On the Fringe” -Summer of Psychics Tour Part 3 - Part Three ~ Travis Sanders Travis Sanders.   www.psychictravissanders.com   What?   Travis Sanders is not a famous psychic you say?  Well….he will be if that’s what he wants!

  • “On the Fringe” – Summer of Psychics Tour Part 2 - Part Two ~ John Edward  John Edward.  http://www.johnedward.net  Yes, the psychic, not the politician.  I used to watch John’s show “Crossing Over” pretty regularly when it was on TV years ago and I liked what I saw.  Even so, on TV you just never know if stories get creatively edited or if people are planted... Continue Reading →
  • “On The Fringe” : Summer of Psychics Tour Part I - The “Summer of Psychics” Tour Part One ~ Sylvia Browne     As a member of Fringe Paranormal, I pride myself on being logical and critical-thinking.  Therefore, I am extremely skeptical when it comes to psychics.  Usually there’s just no way to use what they say as “proof”.  But, like my favorite, hot, brooding, TV FBI...
