Ancient Wisconsin Astronomers

Prof. James Scherz claims to have discovered an ancient Indian calendar site in a marshy region
near Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. Scherz was led to the site by aerial photographs taken during
a wetlands mapping program. Strange "islands" of higher land seen within the bog were found,
upon terrestrial inspection, to be unusually steep, possibly artificial. Some were round, some
four-sided; others were shaped like a fish, a rabbit, and a snake. [Wisconsin has many similar
"effigy mounds" elsewhere.] Causeways connect some of these so-called islands.

The most interesting features of the islands, however, are prominent rocks and rock cairns.
Braving hordes of mosquitoes and ticks, Scherz and an assistant mapped the islands, cairns, and
rocks to determine if any astronomical alignments existed. Sure enough, the solstices and
equinoxes were predictable from some of the alignments. Another alignment provided the site's

The exploration of this site is incomplete, and further information is expected. Quite possibly, the
site is associated with the famous prehistoric coppermining activities around Lake Superior.

“There are rare persons in this world who see things others
don’t; persons who connect the dots of existence and
possess an instinctive talent for linking with kindred souls to
reveal otherwise invisible patterns and excavate hidden
truths. Such a person is Mary Sutherland. She is a natural-
born networker in all she does --- from her Burlington
Vortex Conferences and Sci’Fi Café to her public talks and
published books. Nowhere, however, is her gift for
perception more developed than in her latest title.“  Frank
Joseph .
Joseph was nominated by Japan's Savant Society as
Professor of World Archaeology. He was editor-in-chief of
Ancient American Magazine from 1993 to 2007 and has
traveled the world collecting research materials for his
twenty-seven published books.
"Mary Sutherland is not simply a reporter of all these phenomena;
she lives them! As readers expect, her studies extend beyond her
own experiences. The author and investigator often takes visitors
on tours containing an inter-dimensional vortex and hosts yearly
conferences and meet ups with many well known speakers on
anomalous phenomena."
What differentiates her book. Haunted Burlington Wisconsin , is that
Sutherland includes her explanations of the unknown realms and
phenomena with tips for heightening the reader's own psychic
awareness. Readers who complete this dizzying journey may find
they can no longer look at Burlington in exactly the same way.
Perhaps, then, this book itself may be considered a vortex. and
whether or not it actually transports you to another place, it will
certainly draw you in."
