EDMOND — On windy days, the broken bronze ribbon at the monument for the victims of the Edmond Post Office massacre makes an eerie clanging sound as it bounces back and forth.
It has been that way for years.
Most months, the fountain stays dry and dark at night. The color of the bronze statute has faded, and the base has countless cracks. Weeds sprout from the joints in the surrounding sidewalk.
“It’s tragic to me to see it in that kind of disrepair,” said Randel Shadid, who was acting mayor the day part-time mail carrier Patrick Henry Sherrill fatally shot 14 co-workers. “It needs major refurbishing.”
