The movement to change the name of Lusk to Rawhide isn't dead. In fact it is spreading to such a degree it is even being discussed on foreign shores.

Father Cornelius O'Connor of St. Leo's Catholic Church in Lusk is visiting in his native Ireland. A postcard from him, postmarked Lusk, County Dublin, Ireland, displays some Irish Humor. The card reads: "We are not alone in our struggle. I've been trying to get the inhabitants to change the name to Rawhide."
