Dear editor,

My name is Rosemary Bass, and I am writing in favor of the proposed renaming of Coon Creek.

I am 90 years old, African American, and have lived in Iola since 1947. My husband and I raised our three children in a house that has been owned by African Americans since the early 1920s, in a mostly working-class Black neighborhood. Our kids grew up playing in the creek, which still runs through my backyard today.
