Man or Alien?

September 4, 2003 An Adams County woman was checking a soybean field for flood damage last week when she allegedly discovered crop circles. The field is across the road from Serpent Mound. Some believe what was found in the field is more than just a well-planned joke. Those who have seen the circles say the design appears to be pointing to the ancient Native American mounds and that the markings in the field and tail of the mounds are similar. An independent crop-circle investigator visited the site and said the radiation levels and electrical and magnetic fields were higher inside than the land outside the design. The investigator said he should have his final report next month.

The tablets were removed June 9 from the grounds of four Adams County high schools after U.S. Magistrate Timothy Hogan, of Cincinnati, ruled that displaying them on public property was unconstitutional and a violation of the separation of church and state. The school district is challenging that ruling. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati has not scheduled a date to hear arguments in the appeal. Supporters of the Ten Commandments tablets put one of the 800-pound, 3-foot-high monuments inside the lobby of the Adams County Building & Loan Co. office in Peebles.
