Some residents of Rosemont, Il., are claiming that a tree in the middle of town has revealed the Second Coming.
No, not that Second Coming. The tree, they say, has revealed the face of Donald Stephens, the town's longtime -- but recently deceased -- mayor.
Yes, they believe the peeling bark of the sycamore shows an image of a face. At first, many Rosemonters thought it was Jesus Christ. But now they're convinced it's the visage of Stephens, who died in office in April after serving as mayor for a whopping 51 years.
"It's the way he used to cock his left eyebrow a lot. That's the thing that made me think it's him," village spokesman Gary Mack said.
