Taking it up a notch
The movement toward changing the name of Bureau County’s Negro Creek has come back to life.
About a year ago, Phillip Mol of DePue had heard the creek referred to as “Nigger Creek” one too many times, so he formed a group and created a Facebook page dedicated to changing the name of the creek. When Chad Errio of Seatonville heard about it, he disagreed and formed a group and a Facebook page dedicated to preserving history and keeping the name as it is.
A social network war ensued with heated words and name-calling spread across Facebook and on newspaper blogs.
