Fifty miles off the coast of Nantucket, 250 feet beneath the Atlantic, lies the RMS Republic and her secret treasure. As soon as Republic sank, rumors spread of a precious cargo, but Republic has kept her secrets intact for over a century, until now. Life-long treasure hunter Martin Bayerle will join Connie Willis (email) to discuss how he has devoted the past 35 years of his life researching the Republic and proving the existence of her reputed cargo of 150,000 American Eagle gold coins, a bounty worth a billion dollars in today’s economy and his quest to recover the gold on his second attempt at the Republic.
From 6-10p PT, Art Bell: Somewhere in Time goes back to April 8, 1994, when Art was joined by then Colorado state representative, Charles Duke, who discusses the reason for Colorado state sovereignty and why the federal government has too much power at the local level.
On Tuesday April 2nd, I was on a jeep tour of Sedona, AZ, with my family and one other family. There were 8 of us in all. We stopped at an area named Chicken Point where I took some photos of the beautiful rock formations and sky. Later that day I was reviewing the pictures and this one stood out. The time was approximately 3pm, and the Sun was still high, so this is not a light trick. There were no smudges on any other photographs. I shared this with a friend who is a professional photographer and she declared that this is not an artifact. She claims we captured one of the famous Sedona "energy vortexes" on camera. Chicken Point is not known as a primary vortex location, but several knowledgable people sometimes include it in their list of possible energy sites. The camera was a Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS.
