Instead of interviewing some expert in Ufology, I thought it only fair to get the perspective of the layman for once. Jennifer Stewart is an instructor at Henry Ford College. She teaches sign language to the deaf and hard of hearing. Outside of her chosen career, she finds the UFO topic of great interest. Studies have shown that the higher the education level of the individual, the more apt they are to accept the fact that we are being visited by a more advanced race of beings.

Thanks to Everyone Who Supported WHFR at Cliff Bell's Last Sunday!

WHFR would like to give it's upmost appreciation to Cliff Bell's for hosting our Jazz Benefit on the 17th of this month, especially to RJ Spangler for his help in finding the musicians to perform and coordinating the event. Also, many thanks to the players that donated their talent that evening. It was a wonderful evening of improvised Jazz, there were many WHFR staff in attendance, and it was a huge success. Here's looking forward to the next one!
