Jerry Jacene, a fossil modeler from Tennessee, had been in town for some unrelated activity and saw some tracks.
In this week's Glen Rose Reporter, Jerry Jacene took credit for finding the tracks and there was a christening of one of the tracks for a little girl who is a beneficiary of the Make a Wish foundation. If that were trespassing, that same principle would apply to Jacene. From Oct 20 2010 Glen Rose Reporter Jerry Jacene didn't know what he was going to find when, out of curiousity as a paleontologist, he went exploring laste Sunday afternoon in the carved out hills behind the Comfort Inn & Suites off US Highway 67. He spotted them almost immediately in the rock bed by a trickling stream fed by a seep in the hillside. Dinosaur tracks. "I was walking around there and I found those tracks and I'm looking for a sign to explain the site". Jacene said. "Someone's got to know about this. Jacene went into the hotel where he was staying and found Nirav "Nick" Patel, the general manager..... Looking for a place to stay, he chose the Comfort Inn because he saw the rock walls behind it..... I allowed this only because I thought you had an interesting argument to make re: trespassing, although I personally find it an invalid argument unless it also applies to Mr Jacene. Hmmm, so Jerry did exactly what we did EXCEPT we did it a full year before he even came to Glen Rose. That print story now confirms what he said in the video story. EXCELLENT detective work there "Miss Salon"! Thank you. @go figure, it's Jerry that's the interloper here not us! I've sent only good wishes to Mr. Jacene and Larry Smith regarding the future development of site. It turns out that Smith was not that "angry" at me as Jerry said, that's just another JerryWorld lie to go with the bogus Tresspassing threat. Someone with DPS informed me that when Jacene was down here he helped excavate a Mammoth tusk from some guy's land to be sold to that absurd Creation Museum. Well, there's a fossil now lost to proper scientific study! Thanks Jerry! I myself have found ONE fossil (a new pterosaur) that would have been worth money (thousands) and I did the only proper thing and donated it to SMU. Google "Aetodactylus halli" to read about the new pterosaur I discovered. I've never bought, sold, or traded any fossils except one pretty fossil I bought at Fossilmania. Jerry tried to slander me as a "prospecter", whatever that means. It should be noted that Jacene is neither a degreed or academic "paleontologist" but uses the label to get himself into places that would normally be closed to non-professionals. Must be nice! He is also NOT a member of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology even though tried to hide under their umbrella by saying we violated S.V.P. rules. Other than that I'm sure he's quite knowlegable. Also he wanted to go forward with co-writing a scientific paper (I assume Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology) with the well-respected Dr. James O. Farlow where I'm sure only HIS name would be attached to the tracks in the introductory paragraph regarding history. If he would have given a false history about these tracks he would have commited scientific fraud in my opinion. What a guy! It has since been revealed to me (via a popular fossil forum) that Jerry Jacene himself has been caught on land in Montana (I believe) that he had been told not to collect from or previously thrown off of. In Montana "poachers" take dinosaur bones off private and federal lands to be sold on the black market (not saying), or personal collections, or trade, or whatever. You see that stuff is actually *valuable*. Jerry could have just stepped across a fallen barb wire fence to "prospect" a hillside for future study. Anyway it's quite ridiculous and dishonest for Jerry himself to call people looking for worthless shell molds and urchins in a drainage ditch between commercial properties "trespassers" or "prospectors". Jerry Jacene is the Field Director and Paleontologist for the Makoshika Dinosaur Museum (MDM) in Glendive, Montana and the director and Paleontologist for the Glen Rose Texas Dinosaur Track Site of Glen Rose Texas.
