Its most notable attractions include Bluebell Store, The Monson Family Corn Maze, and Bluebell Cemetery. Bluebell is also known for the supernatural and unexplained, including a large number of UFO sightings (largely due to its small population and number of reports, the greatest number per capita of any other area in the U.S. ) and several haunted sites. There are legends surrounding Bluebell Cemetery and a green light which is said to appear there on certain times of the year. A former chapel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints across from Bluebell Park and next to Bluebell Store that was converted into a private residence decades ago is alleged to be haunted by a young boy, who can still be heard bouncing his rubber ball in what was the former coal room.

What is false claims act law?

The False Claims Act ("FCA") allows a private individual with knowledge of past or present fraud on the federal government to sue on behalf of the government to recover compensatory damages, civil penalties, and triple damages. The FCA has become an important tool for uncovering fraud and abuse of government programs. The FCA compensates the private whistleblower, known as the relator, if his or her efforts are successful in helping the government recover fraudulently obtained government funds.

The FCA contains an ancient legal device called the "qui tam" provision which is shorthand for the Latin phrase:

qui tam pro domino rege quam pro se ipso in hac parte sequitur
he who brings a case on behalf of our lord the King, as well as for himself
