I went to this grade school. In the basement there is still damage from the tornado. Also that is the only place I have ever felt any presence. After the tornado they built off of what was left of the building. Alot of the older generation like to talk about what happened that day when they were at school.

I`m in the Carbondale area and wouldn`t mind getting a group together to GH. If we could get a few good individuals together it might be interesting to ask the school if we could investigate some night. Any takers?

My brother used to live right next to that building, I mean they shared the same lot. He and I cracked into that old building may times to GH, to no avail. it might just be bad luck, but my opinion it... theres nothing there.
