Muskrats & Malls

From Tuscumbia Muskrat: The biggest waste of Tuscumbia tax payer money is the continued employment of our incompetent Park Manager, Joel Kendrick. The Times Daily (again) delivered Kendrick's whitewash of the truth ... this time regarding the removal of the wooden Indian statue at Spring Park. Joel Kendrick's statement:“It had been kind of preserved when they did the work on it, but the underground parts were deteriorating,” “You can’t really preserve it. It had gotten to the point where we were afraid it was going to topple over.” (Statement taken from - Workers seek to salvage Spring Park tree - TimesDaily June 26, 2015)

First Kendrick admits that the statue was originally treated by the man who carved the statue...or as Kendrick so condescendingly put it, "kind of preserved." So for all these years did Kendrick even try to preserve the statue? I guess telling everyone "you can’t really preserve it" means that he never tried to treat it?!? Many concerned citizens questioned the deterioration of the wooden Indian carving, along with other ongoing issues at Spring Park. A few of these citizens posted pics of the neglected park, including pics of the statue's rotting foot... And that ladies & gentlemen is when all the neglect in the park got noticed!!! It certainly WAS NOT an outcry from a concerned Park Manager! Is anyone going to make the Park Manager accountable???


From Darren Rhodes: Jimmy Clemmons (Owner Gingerbread Antiques) turned in his notice last week. I never asked him to leave, or asked to increase his current rental rate for the space. The information you have in your article is 100% false.

(We await a rebuttal from J. Redmon.)
