NEW BURNSIDE - Lorene Schell of New Burnside got word Southern Illinois Tourism Board Chairman John O'Dell was seeking information on unusual activity in the area of Max Creek, between Tunnel Hill and Vienna.

O'Dell had heard stories from several people, and decided he needed to investigate.

A hiker on the River-To-River Trail said there was a vortex near the creek. Another said he was hiking and felt as though he was being thrown off balance and almost dragged to the ground. He suggested some sort of natural optical illusion was responsible. Another reported to O'Dell she felt a general push on her body toward the west, toward the creek.
