You must of never got over being messed up afterwards,are you still there?Heritage Days are suppose to celebrate the past,but all I ever saw during the celebration was heartache of a poor colored family loosing a family member in a senseless act of greed and violence.The Mimm's family deserves a better tribute to them than that,don't you think?Everybody knows how people around here are,a bunch of heathen's.And that includes our Mayor that gets taken home every year by his so called police chief drunk out of his mind,I feel sorry for his wife and children.Our city elected personnel needs to be ashamed of themselves,a town shouldn't be represented in such manner.Heritage Days needs a new format,more family oriented.This drinking and stupid stuff that goes on needs to be kept off the streets.All I can say about Heritage Days in Guthrie,it's a cruel joke on good people.All we are known for is a drunk Mayor and police department,the history is not remembered.They are,believe me people who visit here remember them.That just gives the city of Guthrie a real bad name.

its a celebration of the wholetown!!!!!!!!
ur making it sound racail,when in fact its not!!!!
its people getting together,like in the days before and mingling with friends and family and having a good time.
yes i agree with the mayor and cheif being messed up,but if its ok with them,then i guess its ok.
and guthrie has always had a bad name,,,,,,,,,,for many years. its not mistreating the mimms family its hearitage days. have u ever been to it?
ya cant judge people by their actions,only one can do that.
but anyways i attend every year and if i feel the nedd to take a drink thats handed to me,i'll drink it,just like so many years ago when the older gererationn did it.
