A big rock has spouted in a farm field in Cedar Rapids, creating a big mystery. It wasn't there last year. "We picked the corn last fall and the field was fine. We came back this spring to do some field work, and this big rock was here," said Bob Taylor, 51, a hired man for Balderston Farms of Central City.
The farmer has estimated the rock to be about 15,000 pounds.
There are marks on the rock that shugest it might have been moved my machines, but there is no evedence of movement around where the bolder is.
For the time being it will be farmed around, hopefully it will be moved off his field some time soon.

dont worry, i got this one. The boulder was placed there by UFOs. They carried the boulder to that field from a planet that orbits alpha centuri. They used the particle suspension beam on thier space crafts to carry it here, placed it, and left. If and when you break the boulder open, there should be very important items in the middle. The outer casing was made of rock as a tough and durable transport container. The End.

A strange story that seems to have evoked some jocular responses, curious.
Let's stamp out humor now. Put a stop to any fun......
The original story was not presented in a fashion that made it a serious topic.
