From The New Paltz (N.Y.) Oracle:
On All Hallow's Eve, approximately 200 people came face to face with John Zaffis, ghost hunter. With lights turned off, a booming voice filled the quiet space of Lecture Center 100. This began a simple trip into the paranormal.
A little after 8 p.m., an ordinary looking man in faded black jeans walked to the front of the room and gave us a glimpse into a world of ghosts, demons, and poltergeists.
He admits his fear of the spirits, but somehow he finds them fascinating. ''Poltergeist cases are one of the most interesting things,'' said Zaffis. ''There is a lot of destruction, instantaneously.''
