Calhoun character Creed Brooks, in the early 1900s, was in Grantsville, when a group of local men got together to talk and tell stories near a livery stable.

One of the men asked Creed if he would give a political speech, probably to make fun of him.

The witty man of few words stepped on the top of a pile of horse manure.

The men looked upon Creed in awe, asking what was he doing?

Creed looked them in the eye and said:

"Well, gentlemen this is the first time I was ever asked to make a Republican speech on a Democrat platform."
