Strange Inheritance: Quarter-million ancient
arrowheads coveted by John Wayne

Fox Business, by Krysia Lenzo

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/18/2018 9:42:56 PM

It’s a collection unlikely to be duplicated: nearly 250,000 ancient Native American arrowheads, some as old as 12,000 years. North Carolina couple Moon and Irene Mullins amassed the relics over a half-century, and Moon willed it to his friend and caregiver Jerry Williams. The collection is featured on the FOX Business Network series, “Strange Inheritance with Jamie Colby Opens a New Window. .” The episode premieres Monday, Jan. 22, at 9 p.m. ET. “The Mullins Collection surpasses anything I’ve seen in private hands,” says Joe Candillo, Native American historian and a member of the Pascua Yaqui tribe. “It’s breathtaking.

I worked with a man in Roswell, New Mexico who had an arrowhead collection of tens of thousands of specimens. He asked me to help him mount them and organize them. I would have been glad to if I had had ten years spare time to do it. He had some spear points, pure white, that were more than 14" long. Some of his tiny points were less than an inch and absolutely perfect in every detail. It was fascinating. I would love to go to this museum someday.

PS: I used to fly my small plane over that desert and all along the Pecos river and tribs, just looking at the ground for old ranches. I loved exploring them. And all over the landscape you can see these little circles of stone if you are low enough, and these, I was told by my friend, are the antelope hides the native Americans made to hunt antelope. And if you find one of these sites (which on the ground are practically invisible), you will find hundreds of arrowheads all around them. they were used by tribe hunters for thousands of years. the antelope are still there and incredibly beautiful. I´ve had them walk right up to the window of my truck- just sit still, they will come right up to you. They are notoriously curious animals, which made them easy prey for the bow and arrow hunters.

Neat collection, I have a few I have found over the years but now you can´t even pick up an arrowhead on any public land which is pretty much ALL of the country west of KS.

*Putting on my Pedantic Archaeologist’s Hat now*

The PROPER and CORRECT term is POINT. They come in various sizes but the most common, prolific and well known are DART points. Typically they are attached by sinew and glue to a lng shaft and thrown either by hand or an atl-atl. Yes there are points tiny enough to be attached to a thin stick and shot from a bow. Theyre a bit more rare than darts.

Just a side note that I wanted to share because its interesting. As a former archaeologist, collecting stone tools is contoversial outside the scientific method of excavation. Stone points are often diagnostic to a site and removing them from a location reduces their “value”. often times someone will say to me “hey so and so has arry heads you should go talk to them” and I have to reply “why should I do that now? The site is destroyed and a box of stone points tells me nothing about the place where they were found.”

Yes I know that annoys the hell outta people but I respect scientific study. I was told often by my profs that the only thing separating the archaeologist from a money grubbing pot hunter was the Scoentific Method. Thats what archaeologu IS.

Months after his chaotic resignation as chief of staff, and with his successor on the hot seat, Priebus comes clean about everything: the inauguration crowd-size fiasco, the decision to fire Comey, the Mooch, the tweets, how he helped saved Jeff Sessions’s job, and his mercurial former boss. “I still love the guy,” he says.

TEL AVIV – Seeming discrepancies between the claims of two former officials in John Kerry’s State Department about actions taken involving the infamous, 35-page largely discredited anti-Trump dossier raise immediate questions about the State Department’s possible role in the sordid affair. The dossier, which contains wild and unproven claims about Trump’s campaign and Russia, was authored by ex-British spy Christopher Steele on behalf of the controversial Fusion GPS firm and was paid for by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee. The dossier was reportedly utilized by the FBI to launch its probe into Trump. According to

The anti-George Soros sentiment spreads beyond just Britain where he is synonymously known as "the man who broke the bank of England." In Hungary, legislation called the "Stop Soros" bill has been introduced to parliament which would "empower the interior minister to ban non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that support migration and pose a ´national security risk,´" according to Yahoo News. Submitted to parliament on Tuesday, the bill stems from Prime Minister Viktor Orban´s anti-immigration campaign that specifically targets Soros for using his philanthropy to promote open borders in eastern Europe.

GOP Rep to Introduce the

Congressman Todd Rokita, R-Ind., will introduce legislation that helps Americans keep more of the bonuses they receive by making them tax-free. The legislation, “Creating Relief and Useful Middle-Class Benefits and Savings”—known as the CRUMBS Act—also takes a swipe at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who has repeatedly downplayed the significance of the bonuses some Americans are receiving thanks to the GOP tax plan by referring to them as “crumbs.” “In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving to workers to kind of put the schmooze on — it’s so pathetic,” she told

Gregory Salcido, who was placed on leave from El Rancho High School in Pico Rivera, was heard on a video denigrating members of the military in a rant directed toward a 17-year-old student wearing a U.S. Marine Corps sweatshirt. "They´re not like high-level thinkers, they´re not academic people, they´re not intellectual people; they´re the frickin´ lowest of our low," he said. "I don´t understand why we let

Republicans have erased the Democratic advantage on the generic congressional ballot in a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll that, for the first time since April, also shows President Donald Trump’s approval rating equaling the percentage of voters who disapprove of his job performance. Fully 39 percent of registered voters say they would support the GOP candidate for Congress in their district, while 38 percent would back the Democratic candidate. Nearly a quarter of voters, 23 percent, are undecided. Voters are split almost evenly along party lines. Democratic voters break for their party, 85 percent to 5 percent, while Republicans similarly favor

President Trump, Buy The Newseum!

On February 7, a newspaper familiar with financial, real estate and management troubles, The Washington Post, reported that the Newseum may have to sell its uber high-rent location at 555 Pennsylvania Avenue, which is only blocks from the Capitol Building (and more importantly only a few dozen feet from a Stoli Doli at the Capital Grille), because its owners can’t pay their bills. The building was appraised for $670 million in 2014. Literally nobody is surprised that the Newseum operated at an $8.2 million loss in 2016, with an estimated debt burden of $300,000,000! Let’s be honest, I don’t know many people that will pay $25 to see

Flynn the bichon frise won best in show at the 142nd Westminster Kennel Club dog show on Tuesday night, topping other contenders like Slick the border collie and a pug named Biggie.

Flynn also beat out Ty the giant schnauzer, Bean the Sussex spaniel, Lucy the borzoi, and Winston the Norfolk terrier.

President Trump’s personal lawyer admitted on Tuesday that he paid off a porn star who allegedly had an affair with his boss — but insisted that the payout was his own money and not connected to the Trump Organization or the presidential campaign. Michael D. Cohen said in a statement to The New York Times that he paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 in 2016 — but did not give the newspaper a further explanation about why the payment was made. “Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,”

Democrats immediately politicized the Florida school shooting that left at least 17 people dead on Wednesday and demanded gun control legislation, even before it was known how the shooter got his gun and whether any proposed legislation would have stopped it. Some Democrats blamed Republicans for Wednesday’s tragedy, without citing any evidence whatsoever. “Republicans should pray for forgiveness, for not only their complacency and dereliction of duty, but in contrition for the men, women and children we continue to lay to rest because of senseless gun violence and the cowardly inaction from Congress,”

Student leaders at a high school in the San Francisco Bay Area have decided that the national anthem is racist and outdated and have banned it from school rallies. According to multiple area news outlets, the Associated Student Body at California High School in San Ramon made that decision based on a phrase in the rarely-played third verse. “It was brought to our attention that the national anthem’s third verse is outdated and racially offensive,” Ariyana Kermanizadeh wrote in an open letter. “We had nothing but good intentions by removing the song so that we could be fully inclusive to our student

President Trump has proposed replacing some food stamp grants with actual food. This has curiously enraged liberals, who you would think would be delighted to see "hungry" people getting food.The Trump administration is proposing a major shake-up in one of the country´s most important "safety net" programs, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps. Under the proposal, most SNAP recipients would lose much of their ability to choose the food they buy with their SNAP benefits.But if you like your supermarket, you can keep your supermarket, right? Under the proposal, which was announced Monday, low-income Americans who receive

I´m gonna go out on a limb here: I generally like the Obama official portrait. It´s an odd style, but it expresses him and what´s more, it reflects the art of his era. (snip) Here´s the problem: It´s not drawn very well. The work shows a lack of skill in the basic rendering of an image. The hands are out of proportion in size, even placed in the foreground, overly big. One might be able to write that off as intentional. But the front hand itself has problems in construction, at least if the aim is to create a realistic

Three people with direct knowledge of the plan tell the Associated Press Romney will formally launch his campaign in a video on Thursday.
