land on Manitoulin Island
36 years old, father of two disappears, compounded by
the tendency to over dramatize, vanishes without a trace.
Now, if you just spent three days on a fishing vacation,
unbeknownst to your wife, what would you tell her? "Honey,
you'll never believe this, but I was abducted by aliens
and Elvis was at the helm of the space ship."
and their believers have been relegated in today's society
as impressionable dreamers with a penchant for an overly
descriptive imagination. I too, shared this view. Yet,
to date I will still reaffirm my belief that aliens have
not landed on the planet Earth (except the Orson Wells
as a result of genuine curiosity, I met with UFOlogist
Michel Deschamps. Mr. Deschamps immediately impressed
me with not only the knowledge and proof he possessed,
but also the conviction with which he spoke. Deschamps
is titled as the Provincial Section Director for the Sudbury
District. His duties entail the compilation of all UFO
incidents into report form. These reports are then transferred
to the Mutual UFO Network Inc. (MUFON) located in Texas.
This network establishes a framework through its database
which permits the accessibility of UFO information retrieval.
you, the readers, are probably wondering "Are peanut
butter cups really that big? If so, how do the farmers
keep the chocolate from settling all over the crops?"
To lay your curiosity to rest, yes, peanut butter cups
can be up to nine feet in diameter, and to keep the chocolate
off the crops, a wax paper diaper covers the lower portions
of the flying goodies. To those of you "Homers"
still thinking about the chocolate, I am referring to
the mysterious crop circles that suddenly began appearing
on a systematic basis in England. (Suddenly became newsworthy,
Deschamps will be the first to admit that there is truth
to these circles, but a great number of hoaxes have been
perpetuated by phony circle rakers (stupid phony circle
rakers, at that!) Deschamps has in fact witnessed these
mysterious circle formations first hand. Sometime around
mid-September 1990, on a Spring Bay, Manitoulin Island
road, two unidentifiable (as pertaining to origin) circles
appeared. It was not until one year later, however, that
Mr. Deschamps was informed and proceeded to investigate
the site. As time and the elements would dictate, the
assumed landing site was covered by the surrounding sand
and gravel which make up the entire farm road. With the
meticulous use of a brush, Deschamps managed to uncover
the partial remains of the circle depressions. He observed
that the circles appeared to have been sandblasted with
such an intense pressure that the sand and gravel had
turned into a cement-like surface. Truth of fiction? Deschamps
believes something alive had to have caused these mysterious
formations, and they were not a deliberate attempt to
impetus for Michel Deschamps' plunge into the UFO Phenomena
was not the consequence of a personal sighting. As a child
of 14, with an abundance of natural curiosity, published
articles and first hand accounts by others seemed to perpetuate
his need to find some answers. In future edition of South
Side Story, Mr. Deschamps will reveal his personal accounts
and explore strange and eerie events by which science
is baffled, and but one truth remains. More or less, the
Demystification of UFO's.
aliens are visiting this planet, maybe they too have a
"Prime Directive" of non-interference. My God!
Could that mean Gene Roddenberry was the grand Pubba of
the Martian Civilization? Just remember when gazing aimlessly
into the heavens in an attempt to catch a glimpse of the
unknown, pull off the side of the road first!
