2009 & 2010: Bi-Pedal Canine Reports

Hey, I’m Mike from the Cheboygan, MI area. This is true what I am about to describe. On November 24, 2010, me and two of my friends went out at night around 12 am. We were not hunting but had weapons. We were looking for a spot to set up our blinds for the muzzleloading season when we crossed from a field with tons of deer beddings. We came into another field with none whatsoever. We continued through this field and came across some kind of game trail. We decided to venture down this trail into the woods. We got maybe 300 yards back in it and started hearing heavy breathing and snapping sounds in the thick brush to our right. We thought maybe coyotes but we got to a corner and were stopped in our track. In front of us, maybe 60 yards away, was something blacker than […] Read More

2014: Satanic Displays Going Up in Michigan and Florida to Counter Nativity Scenes

Satanic displays will be going up at Statehouses in Michigan and Florida this Christmas season.  The Florida Department of Management Services approved the display in Tallahassee from the Satanic Temple after rejecting it last year as “grossly offensive.” The satanic display will be put up in the first-floor rotunda of the Capitol for the holiday period beginning on December 22. In Michigan, the Detroit chapter of the same satanic group sought and won approval to put up its exhibit as a counter to the Christian Nativity. Officials approved the display after the Capitol staff consulted the state attorney general’s office. It’s a First Amendment right,” said Michigan Capitol Facility Director Dan Brocklehurst. A Christian Nativity will be erected on the Capitol grounds beginning on Friday morning and the Satanic Temple’s display will go up on Sunday. Back in Florida, Festivus, a non-commercial festival “for the rest of us,” will […] Read More

2006: A Short History of Copper Mining

Copper was first mined in this area by an ancient vanished race between 5,000 and 1,200 bc. These miners left no burial grounds, dwellings, pottery, clay tablets or cave drawings. What was left behind was thousands of copper producing pits and more thousands of crude hammering stones with which the pits had been worked. The ancients apparently worked the copper-bearing rock by alternately using fire and cold water, to break the copper ore into smaller pieces from which they could extract the metal with handheld hammering stones or stone hatchets. With this copper, they made tools. Scientists and engineers estimate that it would have required 10,000 men 1,000 years to develop the extensive operations carried on throughout the region. It is estimated that 1.5 billion pounds of copper were mined by these unknown people. The pure copper of Lake Superior has been discovered in prehistoric cultures throughout North and […] Read More
