RE: [GPSstash] Game Stirs 'Panic"

I was wrong about which cache caused the "panic." I had found a cache in the
immediate area that fit the description and that had been disabled on the
same day as the story. As it turns out, a bunch of caches in that area have
apparently been disabled temporarily by the cache owner(s) until the mess is
sorted out. Anyway, here's a link to what appears to be the cache that made
the news:

Sorry about the previous misinformation.

"Land of the free, Home of the Scared" Post 911 Paranoid ? Yup. No
worries about
TV's, Old Tires, batteries and the like being dumped along the road,
but a small decon
container on a guardrail is "suspicious" Do people just not have
anything better to do that
report these things ?

"The guardrail is located along North Lincoln Avenue near the closed
Aetnaville Bridge. Studenc said authorities questioned a man they had
in custody about the small, green container with a flip top lid, which
was labeled as a decontamination kit. Studenc described it as
military-looking in nature.

It contained two memo pad-sized pieces of white paper with names and
codes on it, as well as several small, plastic toys - an Army man, a
neon green jack, a purple kaleidoscope, a blue domino, and a white and
yellow goat.

``This put a lot of panic into people just because of the area they
put it in,'' Studenc said, referring to the container's proximity to
North Lincoln Avenue, Ohio 7 and a water treatment plant. ``That's not
very smart.''"

That's right... geocaching.
