I grabbed Wednesday's ANNISTON STAR this morning and settled down with a cup of coffee. The headline on the front page shouted at me:


In smaller letters underneath the headline:

Smith Says controversial mound was put at top of hill by natural forces.


As I read the story by DAN WHISENHUNT (, I could only shake my head and laugh at the sheer STUPIDITY of the comments by Oxford Alabama Mayor Leon Smith.

Mayor Smith, having found himself in the midst public outrage, now asserts that the stone mound, THE LARGEST IN THE STATE OF ALABAMA,was NOT man made but put there by natural forces.

DO WHUT....?

In more back tracking news, City Project Manager, Fred Denney, who has been quoted and has confirmed in previous interviews that the mound would be destroyed and used as "fill dirt" for a (proposed) Sam's Club being built at the Oxford exchange, now says that it ISN'T being used and that he NEVER said it was.

Leon Smith and Fred Denney...What a pair these two are!!!! Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumber Than Dirt!

At one point Mayor Smith was quoted as saying the mound was used to send "smoke signals".

The only smoke signals I know about are the ones Smith and Denney are trying to blow up our backends.

The more these 2 talk, the more foolish and just plain ol' dumb they appear.

Still, at the heart of the matter is, a beautiful, IMPORTANT, structure is being destroyed with Tweedle Dee Smith and Tweedle Dumber Than Dirt Denney at the helms. So intent is Smith, that despite public outrage,opinion and national attention, it continues. Makes me wonder what else is going on....what kind of under the table deals are being made....?

(I took these photographs myself yesterday evening. What you can't see on the other side are the bulldozers,etc that have already taken a sizeable chunk out of the back side)

Look at the picture above.....What do you see...?

If you see just a mound of dirt,then join Oxford,Alabama mayor Leon Smith and his city council.

Look again

If you see (what is left) of the LARGEST, ancient stone mound (over 1500 years old)in the state of Alabama,a sacred site to the Indians that lived and OWNED the land, a structure that PREDATES the arrival of the Europeans, then you would be correct.

If you see a big ol' honking and worthless structure that only merits being used as "fill dirt" for a new Sam's Club being built at the Oxford Exchange just off I-20 exit 188 in Oxford,Alabama....once again, consider yourself amongst the ranks of the fine and upstanding mayor of Oxford,Alabama.

The destruction of this site should ENRAGE, not just Native American's, residents of Calhoun County and Alabama, but everyone.

While most cities honor and preserve their historic sites, the city of Oxford is erasing theirs in record time.

You best believe if even 1 tiny,itty bitty battle that didn't amount to a hill of beans had occured on this site during the Civil War it would be a national treasure.

In all fairness, people and what they value differs. Some like the thugs and hoods on the Oxford City Council value the almighty dollar and worship at the feet of Wal-Mart. I have lived here in Alabama all my life and as far as I know there isn't a shortage of dirt. There is a shortage of 1500 year old structures!

What a bunch of WATER HEADED FOOLS!

Mayor Smith in all his learned "wisdom" about the mound has said over and over it was only used to send "smoke signals". What an ASS!

Shame on Wal-Mart and Sam's Club for allowing this to happen.

Shame on the citizens of Alabama for not taking a stand!

"Fill dirt" !!! That is what I can't get over....."Fill dirt"....!!!!!!!!

I wonder how Mayor Smith and his merry band of goons,loons and meatheaded ass wipes would like places that are sacred to their families and history to be used as "fill dirt".

The destruction is well under way and it is not only sad but shameful!

It may and probably is too late to prevent further destruction, but if you are concerned, here is what you can do:
