If I lived in Sulphur, I also would vote on a name change. My Mother was born in Sulphur Springs on Sept 4, 1904, in a Soddy house. She was the daughter of Luther and Effie (McClurg) Whitley. But I live in California and can not vote. When my Mother died in 2000 at the age of 96, I had her birth place listed as Sulphur Springs, Oklahoma. Thank You.

You can change the name but it aint going to help....the city still smells, as does most of the people that live there. If your not a long time resident,born and raised there, they treat you like crap.

You mean Oral Roberts isn't in on this like when he wanted to change Jenks into Riverside.

My family always called it Sulphur Springs. I didn't know it was just Sulphur until I was looking at an Atlas. When I was little we went through there on a vacation, I remember it being nice and friendly. If you come across as a jerk, they are going to treat you like one.
