On the same night USD 257 school board members agreed to eventually remove the “Fillies” moniker for Iola High School girls sports teams, Iola City Council members were asked to reconsider naming Coon Creek back to its original name — Small Creek.

The waterway zigzags through residential neighborhoods in north Iola before eventually emptying into the Neosho River.

Council members discussed the pros and cons of such a change before agreeing they’d like to hear from others in town before making a decision at their Dec. 9 meeting.
