Wonders: Plant was a mystery, even to Ole Dave Rosenbaum
True re-discovery for Fairplay native of global renown: Earls Ridge continues to be a place of wonder and discovery. - DAVE ROSENBAUM

By Ed Waggner
"I had no idea," Ole Dave Rosenbaum replied after receiving a note from CM implying he actually knew what the Elegant Stinkhorn (PHOTO) he sent in to CM was.
He admits he knew it was some kind of fungus, and not, what some suspected, a nerf toy planted as a prank. "It is obviously some sort of mushroom," he writes, "but I really had never noticed it before."
Nothing unusual about the discovery. Many Adair Countians live a life time here and never see a single one of them."
While no one in their right mind would eat the forbidding thing, it is important to note that it could have an economic impact, as some believe that there may be a use for them in to process for medicine.
Dave's sage conclusion, a lesson for all of us: "Earls Ridge continues to be a place of wonder and discovery."
