YUKON, Okla. — There is no doubt the legal battle playing out in court regarding country star Garth Brooks' hospital donation is big talk in his hometown of Yukon. Now word that a former Yukon councilman thinks Brooks' name should be taken off a Yukon street and water tower.

Yukon residents have their own opinions.

Kathy Bates agrees with the former town leader, “I think it would be great. He's moved out of here and left us with nothing.” 

Whereas others, like Coach Hendrickson of Yukon, back the country star.

“Hell no. Garth Brooks is an icon in Oklahoma. Now it would be different if he were a Sandusky at Penn State or something like that, but this is a monetary issue,” Coach Hendrickson said.

The trial continues in Rogers County Thursday.
