A Paleozoic stone, which was deposited near the Coppermine Brook during the Triassic age, and had gone untouched by human hand for millions of years, was found along the banks of the brook early yesterday morning by little Jimmy Willis.
According to eyewitnesses, the nine year old picked up the palm sized stone and threw it sidearm along the surface of the brook where it skipped three times before it dropped below the water line, sinking to the bottom of the dirty brook. It is now feared lost to time.
Geology students from Tunxis Community College were disappointed that the stone was thrown into the water and could not be studied further. However, Forestville Geologist Nolan Crampwell suspects the boy randomly chose the stone thus its disappearance could be categorized only as an act of God.
Because there are similar stones near the brook, no attempts will be made to raise the little stone.
