When Circuit Clerk Eli Henderson finally cracks open that mysterious safe at the Calhoun County Courthouse, there’s no telling what would-be sleuths may find inside.

What follows are 10 possibilities, ranked in no particular order:

1. A complete set of The Daily Hot Blast, circa 1883.

2. The real reason why Interstate 20 goes through Oxford, not Anniston.

3. The answer to the question: Who is the best high school athlete in Calhoun County history?

4. A deed to a homestead in Oxanna.

5. Noble Street’s future.

6. Unclaimed cash from the Monsanto verdict.

7. Henderson’s dog-eared copy of If The South Had Won The Civil War.

8. Proof of the corruption former Anniston City Councilman Ben Little so desperately sought.

9. The completion date for the Veterans Memorial Parkway.

10. A bobblehead of Oxford Mayor Leon Smith.
