According to unconfirmed reports of the haunted happenings, there has been an unexplained event in Riverside Park. Jemmy Miller, the Rushville Street Department commissioner, has reported finding a house trailer in the park.
“There it was just sitting there half way down in the creek,” Miller reports in Halloween fashion. “I couldn’t believe my eyes!” he said. “It was really foggy that morning. It rained a lot that night, but not that much to float a trailer down “Flatrock.”
Miller immediately reported this to Mayor Mike Pavey who upon hearing the news of another unwanted building in a city park, ordered it removed that same day by Miller. The street commissioner said he would take care of it.
“The house trailer was just sitting there at an odd angle, halfway down in the creek he said “sort of like Noah’s Ark,” describes Miller.
Speculation went on as to how and why it was there. No answer was apparent. “The task of moving it out of the park would not be easy with all these trees,” he said.
Someone then shouted “over there’s an opening!” Street Department crews began to pull it in that direction but just as the trailer was about to clear the opening everyone heard a yell, “WHOAAA!”
The man driving the tractor stopped and the trailer slid against a hickory tree, shattering one of the windows. A black cat jumped out the opening and hickory nuts rained down like, pardon the pun, “cats and dogs,” Pop, pop, bang, bang was the sound the nuts made.
Nobody admitted yelling and everyone stood around looking at each other. “I didn’t say anything” was the common reply to questioning looks. Just then another sound came, a strange sound, it seemed to be coming from the trailer itself. Then an eerie silence. . .
