I am embarrassed every time I read an article like I read this morning in The Star. It was written by reporter Patrick McCreless about our rich Native American culture in Oxford. He is obviously a man of knowledge and culture. He knows what a rich Indian history we have. Oxford, listen and learn from him.
I am embarrassed at how illiterate and culturally backward some of Oxford's leaders are. People of Oxford, it's my opinion you would do well to vote some of these people out of office as quickly as possible before all of the Indian history is completely destroyed. I feel sure there are many intelligent, cultured people in Oxford who would help preserve it. Find them, vote for them and make Oxford and Calhoun County proud.
You know it was Interstate 20 that enabled Oxford to grow, not your leaders or officials.
This rich Indian culture in your backyard is like finding a gold mine and refusing to mine it because you don't recognize its value. So you fill it up with dirt and play ball. Find the money to preserve our Indian gold and mine it.
Your name is going down in the history books either way. Use it or lose it. It's your choice. I hope you use it.
