    Hello Oscar:
    I think of you every dsy and the firestorm your enduring for all of us. When I worked with you in Ft. Smith your kindness and generosity took me and gave me a stronger belief in my hope for all of us as Americans! Your spirit and efforts are so lofty and giving that I am a better person for knowing you. I know that you are a humble honest and fervent humane being only trying to help our society and fight for the rights we all should have.

    Hello Ronn: I forwarded your message, above, to Oscar. I’m sure he will be humbled by your kindness and good thoughts of him. If you would like to place on this comment section your contact email address for him (in case he doesn’t already have it) I’d be glad to forward that to him. Oscar is doing as well as can be expected. I’m sure he would love to be able to talk with you.

  4. Ronn Cook Says:

    Thanks for your reply Carole:
    This is the first time I’ve ‘Blogged’
    I assumed Oscar would be able to E-mail me but I guess he has fewer avenues to communicate. If you can read this Oscar my E-mail address is Omnisage@peoplepc.com.
    Carole, thankyou for responding and I look forward to hearing from Osacar and you soon.

  5. Carole Lonsway Says:

    Hi Again Ronn:

    This address Omnisage@people.com is not an email address, sorry, it’s a web address, so is there another “email” address where Oscar can email you? I did forward your original message to him, but with what you gave me above, he can’t contact you. :-) I’ll look for your response. Carole

  6. Ronn Cook Says:

    Hi Carole;
    Above you wrote that Omnisage@people.com is not an E-mail address. I agree, however my E-mail address is Omnisage@peoplepc.com. The difference is I hope just the pc at the end of people. Am I not correct? If this is not the problem I am not getting it. Thankyou for all your efforts.

    I don’t know you except by way of media accounts. Your blog is interesting, I hope you keep writing when circumstances permit. I particularly enjoyed your five-part “interview” with a Revolutionary War soldier.

    Keenan, above, makes GREAT bar-b-que… please let him bring you some at your first opportunity.

  10. Pete Says:

    Oscar –
    I had left you a message on an older web site regarding Shagbark Hickory, and was apprised of your circumstances. At some point I hope you will be able to continue pursuing your love for trees. In the meantime I will muddle along as best I can. Take care !

    I have tried to reach Mr. Oscar by facebook but I have not succeeded. I think he may be some kin to me. I had some family in Knoxville, Arkansas that used to be Aunt Mag Stilley she was my great, great Aunt and this was back in the late 1950’s. I was just a little girl and don’t remember much about them only we were kin folks. Have Mr. Oscar to contact me jlfain1@sbcglobal.net. My name is Janice Lynn (Smith) Fain. My grandfather that lived in Knoxville back then was William Presley Smith and his wife was Daisy (Norman) Smith.

    Oscar. Please give me a call. Thanks, Charles

    1. I will forward your request to Oscar.

  13. I was wondering what happened to Oscar and then out of the blue I received a facebook message from a concerned person who has kindly taken on the task of trying to get more people involved. I will consider doing a fast and I will definitely be praying about what I can do to help. Oscar was a very kind supporter of Ron Paul back in 2008 and that is how I got to know him.

    You were my Mom’s attorney when she took on City Hall and you won! Her name was Sue Burke. I am her daughter. I’ve met you a few times and you and talked over the phone after she passed away and you told me you had a tree for me to plant in her honor. I am deeply saddened and very upset to hear what has happened concerning you. I know you are a good man and this foul fate that has befallen you is WRONG! My Mom used to talk very highly of you and tell me that you were a man who fought corruption and injustice. She said that you were man to have in your corner and that despite the City of Fort Smith and some judges you would persevere. I read about you in the paper from time to time and eventually moved out of Arkansas. I had no idea this had happened. My heart, my thoughts and all of my support are with you! I would love to have the opportunity to talk with you. Please let me know how I can help to fight this.

    Thank you,

    I don’t know Oscar Stilly but I know how crooked the court system can be sometimes when they get it out for someone.And I think they got it out for Oscar Stilly and they hurt him in any way they could. It’s wrong! The good old boy system is just SICK! I’m glad that we have a higher power above them. I look forward to the day when I see some of them have to answer for hurting good people like Oscar Stilly!
