WKBW – Kreskin Predicts Future of Afflicted Leroy High Students
The Amazing Kreskin is making a major prediction regarding this increasing infection of nervous tics, etc. that began at LeRoy High School in New York.
“I predict that these afflicted young people will, within 3 months, be completely healed, and it will be accomplished without massive doses of antibiotics, intense psychotherapy, shock therapy, or other extreme measures. The key that will cause the healing is a priceless factor…..”
The reason I wrote the foreword to two books, Ghosts in the Valley and More Ghosts in the Valley, is because the author and the copy within the books absolutely enchanted me. Adi-Kent Thomas Jeffrey was a renowned ghost-chaser who during her lifetime investigated chilling incidents, including incidents of spooks, spirits, and haunted houses, many of which took place in Pennsylvania, my favorite state. My father’s side of the family lived in the Lehigh Valley area, specifically Bethlehem and Allentown. Adi-Kent’s daughter, Lynda Elizabeth Jeffrey, recounted experiences and incidents that took place in the area and surrounding districts where my family lived.
Whether we believe in ghosts or not really doesn’t matter, for there’s no question that mysterious and at times chilling events have taken place in various lives. What an appropriate time for the release, revising, and editing of Jeffrey’s original writings. Today we have tremendous interest in other worlds, as we can see in the successful haunted house movies and the fascination with vampires. And listen to this….the author was of Hungarian descent and carried her fascination with ghostly lore from an ancestral valley at the foot of the Carpathian Mountains in Hungary and carried it all the way to the Delaware Valley area of Pennsylvania. If you have ever sat around a campfire and told ghost stories, you’ve got to read both of these books.

I just saw over the weekend the front page story in The Star-Ledger “Teen’s dedication to soldiers yields a glimpse at life of duty”, the piece highlighting High School Junior John McDonald’s creation of a GI Tickets Foundation. It has been a while since I have been so inspired by a news story. Here a young man, a high school student, hoping this will give him more credibility and value in his applications to attend a university, decides to raise funds so he can gift sports tickets to returning combat veterans. The original thought was that it would set him apart from others on his college applications, but as Mark Di Ionno’s story relates, it became something much more meaningful to him.
When you hear today that some young people feel they can get credit in life by marching on Wall Street and then sustaining a period in which there are unhealthy conditions and sometimes illegal activities, what a contrast to find here a young man who reflects an inspiring spirit of patriotism. When I was going to school, one of my close friends decided to join the Peace Corp. Maybe he didn’t get paid for it, but he was paid in the long run with an experience you could not count in money. And the same holds true of John McDonald. If I saw an array of credentials from different applicants for a job, I can tell you right now John McDonald’s inspiring and unselfish activity would stand far and above.

Kreskin’s Sudden Blackjack Winning
On Sunday night, Kreskin happened into Atlantic City. Having been nearby and having not visited for a long time, Kreskin decided to approach the blackjack tables. While his pictures are in casinos throughout the western U.S. , it would be quite a challenge for him to sit in on a poker game, as he is not allowed, but he is often permitted to play blackjack. The reason is obvious….dealers do not know the cards coming up, no one is thinking of any cards, and consequently the fall of the cards from a shuffle deck are pretty much chance.
He entered the pit to sit at a $25 table. Of the money he brought, which was limited, he really only used $350 of his cash to play with. The supervisor overseeing the game was Tom Byrnes at the Golden Nugget. It was one of those exciting nights. Normally late Sunday evenings are extremely quiet, but Kreskin ended up winning $4,500!
More on Midnight Snack by Michael McCarty….
A reviewer, referred to tongue-in-cheek as The Amazing Mark (Mark McLaughlin) makes this astounding prediction in his Facebook commentary :
“MIDNIGHT SNACK will someday become a Hollywood blockbuster starring Brad Pitt as the vampire, Lindsay Lohan as the promiscuous hotty (in other words, she’ll be playing herself), Paris Hilton as Corpse No. 3, and Zac Efron as The Amazing Kreskin!”
