(Dekalb County borders Noble County, where I live. I got a kick out of that level of detail!)

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion, that
their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, in
California an archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after,
headlines in the LA Times newspaper read: "California archaeologists have
found traces of 200 year old copper wire and have concluded that their
ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred
years earlier than the New Yorkers."

One week later, "The Muncie Star," a local newspaper in INDIANA, reported
the following: After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near Auburn,
(DeKalb County) Indiana, Bobby Mitchell, a self-taught archaeologist,
reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bobby has therefore concluded that
300 years ago, Indiana had already gone wireless.
