Anderstown Sinkhole = PORTAL TO HELL

Do NOT go to Anderstown or be damned for all eternity! 

A great evil has been in our nation for over two hundred years. 

It frightens me how long we’ve put up with this devil worship. 

I get emails everyday from people telling me it’s not true, that I’m just overreacting, that I’m just an idiot who needs to get a life. 

Oh, how little they know. 

Fools, all of them! 

They are the chaffed that is blown by the wind, they are the sheep that have been led astray, they are the blind who believe they can see. 

But I’m not blind, I can see!

There are other people like me who see it too. 

One of these knights of the faith is a man by the name of John.

He just sent me an email not too long ago. 

“Dear Mr. Berkins,

I don’t know if you’ve seen this, but I thought this was interesting. 

Here’s a picture of the sinkhole from Google Maps. 

If you notice, the hole is in the center of a pentagram. See how there are five roads that surround the hole, and how each road comes to a point, forming a pentagram? Pretty strange huh?” 

My friends, how much more do you need? 

Thanks to John,we have undeniable proof that the Anderstontown Sinkhole is indeed Satanic. If you value your faith, you should avoid it at all costs and warn everyone you know. 

Until next time. 

“I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness saying, ‘Prepare the way of the LORD.’” - John 1:23


Who were the Olentines? 

The Olentines were a humble family that did everything together. They ate together, they played together, and they farmed together. 

Jason Olentine, the family’s patriarch, was said to have been a great farmer, a dedicated husband, 

At the crack of dawn, he would get up and tend to his wheat field. His sons Albert, Jacob, and William would help plant and harvest the delicate crop. Meanwhile, his daughters, Michelle, Ruth, Thersa, and June, would tend to the animals and help their mother, Abigale Olenties, with chores around the house. 

Suddenly on the night of July 18th, everything changed. 

“Something shook the house,” said Mr. Olentine to reporter Trent Munich. “At first, I thought it was an earthquake!” 

“We were mighty frightened,” said June in her autobiography The Olentines: A Memoir of the Anderstown Sinkhole, “I must have cried my pretty little head off! I thought I was going to die!” 

“We couldn’t have done anything much but pray,” said Albert in the same interview with Mr. Munich. “We probably said the Lord’s prayer a thousand times, hoping he would protect us, and he did.” 

“I never understood what people meant by a ‘blinding light,’ but I do now!” said Mr. Olentine. 

“When I opened my eyes, all I saw was white, I’m talking white, white. I look to my left, I look to my right, it’s all white! And it felt like my eyes were being fried on a skillet the longer I kept them open.”

Eventually, the light died down, and the earthquake ceased. 

The Olentine family didn’t step out of their house for a long time. But Jason Olentine was never the one to hide from danger. 

“I picked up a shotgun, hiked up my britches, and walked out the door,” said Mr. Olentinr. “At first I saw nothing. Everything looked the same. It couldn’t have been a cannon blast, or fireworks that went haywire, 'cause I would have seen something.” 

Mr. Olentine wandered further into the field until he made one of the greatest discoveries in American history

“It was a hole,” he said. “But it wasn’t an ordinary hole. There was a purple light coming out of it, I could see clouds circling the edges, and a flash of lightning shooting from the center. It was like a piece of the sky had fallen to the ground. It was mighty pretty to look at. It made me feel calm... like I didn't have a care in the world!”

Since then, the little fifteen-foot wide sinkhole has brought nothing but prosperity to both the town of Anderstown and the Olentie family and continues to wow us with its beauty to this day. 


Protestors Block Highway Exit to Anderstown 

By Eddie Glentz 

On a summer afternoon of July 12th, a caravan of environmentalists, Stop the Hole Brigade, blocked Highway Exit 295, which leads to Anderstown, home of the Great Sinkhole. The protest resulted in a fifty-mile-long traffic jam, and the arrest of fifteen people. 

“The sinkhole is growing, and that's not a good thing,” said Thomas Raynard, spokesperson for the Stop the Hole Brigade. “Geographers have pointed out how this thing has been growing ten feet wider every fifty years, and no one is doing anything to stop it.” 

This protest happened a few weeks after the highly renowned geographer, Daniel Heston, spoke out saying, “The Sinkhole in Anderstown is the biggest threat to our world today.”  

When asked why the group decided to block Exit 295, Thomas Raynard said they needed to attack the town where it would hurt them the most. By cutting off Anderstown's only source of revenue, they hoped the governing authorities would take their concerns seriously.

The mayor of Anderstown, Franklin Olentine, made a public statement yesterday saying that he understood the protestor’s concerns but said there is no need for alarm. 

“I am already pushing for legislation that will employ countless experts to work around the clock to solve this problem!” he said.

Cry Coming from Anderstown Sinkhole

Scientific Anomaly or Evidence of a Large Creature?

By Jenifer Powl 

DISCLAIMER: Do not break into Sinkhole Park. Doing so will result in you being charged with breaking-and-entering, as well as trespassing. I am not condoning the actions of the people mentioned below.

For the past five years, videos have surfaced online of a strange noise coming from the Anderstown Sinkhole at Sinkhole Park. 

These videos are taken in the dead of night, long after the park’s hours of operations. 

People who have recorded such an event usually hide deep inside the park and wait for it to close down, while others just break-in.

If you've ever been to the infamous Sinkhole, you’ll know that it is hauntingly quiet.

However, if you listen to the video you’ll hear a loud inhuman cry coming from the peaceful hole. 

Internet sleuths claim that the noise is just the sound from the hole, while others claim that videos are all faked. 

Residents of Anderstown have yet to comment on this strange noise recorded on film. The Mayor of Anderstown said he was extremely disappointed that people would choose to break into Sinkhole Park. 

Whether the noise coming from the sinkhole is just a scientific phenomenon or a monstrous creature, you can’t deny the sound is the stuff of nightmares!



Do NOT fly Drones over, around, or into the sinkhole. 

Violators will be fined $1,000.

Sinkhole Park is NOT responsible for the damage or loss of personal property.

St. Gloria: A Groundbreaking Achievement in Subterranean Travel!

By Gwen Palpa

For the past fifteen years, the University of Innovate Technologies has been working diligently on the world’s first subterranean vehicle, which they have called St. Gloria

The ship is roughly the shape and size of a Boeing 737, but under the hood is a nuclear engine, and behind the dashboard is a combination of controls from both planes and submarines. 

Lead designer, Dr. Henry Calvada, said St. Gloria has been designed specifically for the 6th Expedition of Anderstown Sinkhole. 

“We are very confident St. Gloria will be well prepared for its mission,” said the doctor. “It could go on forever if the crew so desire.”
