What do the Minnesota Twins, Honking Tree, and new Two Harbors water tower have in common? All are offering fodder for reader involvement this month.
The News-Chronicle is still looking for people going to a Twins game this season to ask them about the experience of the new Target Field in Minneapolis. If you are going to one of the early games, let us know, we’ll be there as well. Call 834-2141.
The end of this month will mark the unfortunate anniversary of the discovery of the Honking Tree cut down on the expressway south of town. We are offering prizes in an “arts” contest honoring the tree. Send us your best artistic work, essays, or poems on the tree and we will print them in a special section April 30.
We are especially looking for mystery stories dealing with how the tree might have meet its demise.
Get pen or brush going now, the deadline is April 22. Drop items off at our downtown office or send to email@example.com.
The Two Harbors Arts and Beautification Committee met for the first time last week. Assignment No. 1 is the new water tower going up in the industrial park. The committee will recommend the color scheme and a logo to the city council.
The committee would like your help in what the water tower might say, aside from “Two Harbors.” Should it be “Gateway to the North Shore?” Or “It All Starts Here?” Put on your thinking cap and send us your suggestion for a city slogan to grace the tower. We will pass them along to the committee. Mail your entries to the address below or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If they don’t get any suggestions, expect the committee to recommend putting up “Nothing To See Here. Move On.”
