SHOW LOW, Arizona –
I was given the Apache name Kee'Pee pronounced Kippy by a 21 year old bible
scholar named Charles who is an Apache. It means mellow and easy going.
The Hopi Calendar
Last week I interviewed a young man regarding the Hopi calendar. According to
him there will be a major volcanic eruption in Colorado this December. With
tears running down his face he repeated these words several times, "Get to high
ground.” He said that Phoenix will be destroyed along with several other large
and small cities. They will be covered with lava.
I experienced the Mount Saint
Helen's eruption in 1980 and I know it would be suddenly totally dark. It took
Spokane 30 minutes to figure out how to activate the EBS. It could take longer
in Arizona. When it happens it will be too late to escape. Earthquakes would be
The young man was raised by his grandmother. She told him many stories about her
ancestors. The Navajos and the Hopis had a great war. Only four Hopis survived.
They escaped to the cave dwellings where the tribe there sheltered them. The
name of the tribe starts with a T and has four letters I believe. I do not have
internet service so I cannot Google it. The young man said he is a mutt, half
T---, one quarter Navajo and one quarter Hopi. He has seen and studied the
Betty works at Spirits Lounge inside Hon-dah Resort. She interprets dreams.
Recently she had a dream of many ships sinking. Immediately after the dream a
high school boy who she knew committed suicide. Since then there have been about
30 deaths in this 50 mile radius. She says it has just begun. Many more ships
will sink very soon. I have been invited to several wakes on the White Mountain
Apache Reservation this week. In the past two weeks about 20 have died. I read
the Apache newspaper on Saturday and about 10 more were in the obituary. In Show
Low many more have died. These areas have small populations. The percentage of
deaths is unusually large. Summit Hospital in Show Low has had 50 medical errors
these last few weeks. It is under staffed and the staff they have methodically
go right by the book.
A young girl went to the ER complaining of severe jaw pain. She was given
antibiotics and sent home. She returned twice more only now her pain and
swelling has increased. Her mother finally took her to a hospital in Phoenix.
She was taken to surgery right away. Her mother was told her tooth abscess had
spread to her brain and if she had not had the surgery she would have died
within a few hours.
A man was in a motorcycle accident. He was taken to Summit by ambulance. He had
a cut on his leg and a headache. He wanted stitches in his leg which the staff
refused to do. He attempted to leave was placed in restraints and the police
were called to hold him. He was put in a helicopter and flown to a hospital in
Phoenix were his leg was stitched and he was released. The bills are in the tens
A woman went to the ER with leg pain. Months later she has had three staff
infections and the Doctor at Summit wants to amputate her leg.
An elderly woman went in for routine eye surgery. She woke up during the surgery
to the sound of two doctors arguing about whose fault it was. When she woke up
she was blind in that eye. The doctor agreed to do a second surgery. Now she is
still blind in that eye and has lost most of the vision in the other.
