Geocacher Finds Ancient Yavapai Indian Jar
By Joanna Dodder Nellans, The Daily Courier, 4/18/11
When Dave Kurr was a kid exploring the hills north of Prescott with his friends, he was bummed out when they would find arrowheads and he never did.
It took him until he was 43 years old to find an Indian artifact, but he’s made up for it by finding an amazingly rare ceramic jar on the Prescott National Forest.
And instead of keeping it to show his friends, he chose to do the right thing by leaving it where it was and reporting it to archaeologists, so everyone could learn more about the people who created it.
It’s a banana – not a bomb!
Ah… When geocaching hits the news for less than savory reasons. This time, at least it’s funny!
Suspicious banana in tree not a bomb
Lincoln fire investigators have cracked the case of the suspicious banana found hanging Tuesday from a pine tree in northeast Lincoln.
The banana-appearing device, wrapped in yellow tape and attached to a wire, caught the eye of a Lincoln Electric System worker in the area of 84th Street and Leighton Avenue, Lincoln Fire and Rescue Capt. Lloyd Mueller said.
So the man called 911 to report the suspicious banana and police and fire crews, along with a bomb technician, responded.
