But at a special town meeting in this Central Illinois community of 1,200 people, that's exactly what folks discussed. Christian County Sheriff Jack De-Clerck, who says the issue has been "blown plumb out of proportion," said he decided to call the meeting because rumors had it that a devil cult was sacrificing animals in the Edinburg Cemetery. DeClerck said he was told the devil cult, which supposedly meets near a local bridge, was sacrificing goats, dogs, sheep and cats. But the sheriff told the 150 people at the meeting Friday night that in the past 10 days authorities have "covered this town with all the power we've got and we haven't found anything." DeClerck said someone found a cat with its legs cut off. The discovery prompted a rumor that the cat had been sacrificed. "This is my personal opinion." 'DeClerck said, "but I think some farmer was mowing, that cat was in PUBLIC NOTICE SALE!

He also said police have talked to about six high school students rumored to be part of the cult. "They think it's all a joke," he said. But not all the residents have taken the issue lightly, prompting a warning from school board president Tom Hedden. "Somebody's going to get hurt if this doesn't shut up," he said. Several youths questioned by police about the alleged cult were in the audience but said nothing. The mother of one of them did speak, though. "My daughter is not a devil worshipper," she told the crowd. "If anybody's got any proof that she is. then call the sheriff. If she's guilty then, fine, she should be punished. But a bunch of gossip do you know what you're doing to a bunch of kids?" Hedden agreed with DeClerck that the situation has gotten out of hand. "This is a small town, and at the beginning of it all there might be a little truth." he said. "But at the end it gets to be full-blown rumor." ONLY 3 DAYS ONLY SUN. SEPT. 23rd MON. SEPT. 24th TUES.
