to El Rancho employees, they had never heard of
any ghostly activity happening there.
do have information from a former jailor/dispatcher indicating
that back in the 1970s there was a peeping Tom who wore flannel
shirts and who lived near the trailer court. Although he
would quickly disappear, this was because he could "run
like a deer," and not because he was a spectre. The voyeur
was arrested numerous times and died several years ago.
We were unable to contact anyone from the trailer
court to see if anybody alleges any recent sightings of the
"peeping Tom ghost."
former Bloody Bucket has since been completely
rebuilt, and today it is a popular Ladysmith bar and restaurant
with no reports of any haunting activity.
