Comment by Anonymous: I apologize this is not about a haunting or any paranormal sightings. I am replying in response to your entry about Tony. I remember when this happened in 1985. I was attending Hemet High School at the same time. He would have graduated that year. You never know what turmoil a person is going through even though on the outside he seemed to have the world at his feet. He was a high school football star dating a cheerleader. I think he had a scholarship to a college (UCR if I remember correctly).
After reading your entry I had no idea, and probably no one else did as to the torment that this young man was going through. The saddest thing is if this would have happened today, he might have been able to get help or counseling to help him cope with the multiple tragedies he had encountered in his life.
Back then it would have been considered a weakness to admit that you needed help in some way. If one was depressed, you would have been considered as a pariah in the community. You would have been told to man up and deal with it. If only help would have been available for him, he very well might be alive today and have been able to graduate high school and college, get married, have children, and maybe even have grandchildren now.
It is one of those things that you think about when you hear a young life taken too soon, even if by his own hand. No matter what our social status is in this life, all of us could be or know that one person who looks OK on the outside, yet is screaming for help on the inside.

This is very interesting, reading through the postings. I see several postings talking about Thompson and Taylor Streets. I grew up on Thompson going toward Johnston, just a jump away from Taylor Street. The house is pink with a white garage. My parents sold it and moved away, and I live out of California now.
Living in that house most of my life, I had strange things happen every now and again. I could be doing homework in my room, and I kept seeing a shadow pass the window that faced north in my room. I always checked, and there was no one in the yard. It didn't happen in any other rooms of the house. One time my mom, uncle, and I were talking in the kitchen, and on a wall far from us, a clock fell off of a nail. We were all shocked, and the nail in the wall was stable.
Once there was a glass of water far from a counter's edge. It flew off of the edge and broke. My grandma had lived there for a while and had a porcelain doll with red hair. My grandma said it reminded her of herself when she was young. I swear one time the doll spoke and said ''Carol,'' my grandma's name.
My mother said she too saw shadows pass the windows and sensed a presence, never a bad spirit though. Friends who visited when I was young said ''your house feels haunted. '' A neighbor of mine saw a face in her bedroom and about a year later the shape of man, and suddenly it was gone. .
