Are UFO”S to blame for the recent crop circles?
The hotspot for “mysterious” crop circles in the Northwest is Wilbur, an eastern Washington town of about 1,000 humans surrounded by wheat fields.
This summer, you can add to the town’s stats: The best-kept secret – Who makes the crop circles showing up near Wilbur.
With as many as three instances of crop circles showing up in less than six years, all pretty much at the same time of the year and visible from roadways, many suspect the culprits must be locals. A previous set showed up in 2009 and got a lot of attention.
“The consensus from the people I have spoken to is that it is being done locally,” said Lincoln County Undersheriff Kelly Watkins. He added, however, he hasn’t heard who the culprit(s) might be.
“I’m kind of a pessimistic kind of a guy,” said William Grigsby, who has taught high school history in Wilbur for 18 years.
“I just got a feeling somebody around here has got this figured out and figured out a way to do it in the middle of the night and makes everybody crazy.
“I’m sure that some people believe that the aliens have chosen our promised land here for their circles, but I think that most people think that somehow, something weird is going on and that these guys are doing this – but gosh, you just really would think that somebody would be talking about (who it is), but they’re not.”
