Bathtub Rock reward fund grows

TAHLEQUAH — Editor, Daily Press:

Thoughtless people defaced one of the wonderful places in Oklahoma: Bathtub Rock, located on a protected tributary of the Illinois River. A reward fund of $700 has been established for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of those who defaced this landmark. Hopefully they will have to repair the damage they caused.

Photos show Bathtub Rock on the J.T. Nickel Nature Preserve and the graffiti by “Kristi” and “Taysia.”

Contributions to the fund should be addressed to Shame on You Reward Fund, in care of Save the Illinois River Inc., 24369 E 757 Road, Tahlequah, Okla., 74464. Any amount will be appreciated. If not awarded, the fund will be used to clean up the damage and to help protect Oklahoma’s scenic rivers.

Contributions also can be made through Save The Illinois River’s web page at Pay Pal. Simply click on “join,” select any purchase option you wish and note it is for the reward. Contributions of $15 or more will include a STIR membership for you and your family.

Email info@illinoisriver.org. For more information, call 918-284- 9440.
