Editorial: Last call for reader inputThe deadline is Monday for anyone wanting to participate in the hunt for a new slogan for the city of Two Harbors. Just think, your idea would be written in six-foot high letters for all passersby to see.
The deadline is Monday for anyone wanting to participate in the hunt for a new slogan for the city of Two Harbors. Just think, your idea would be written in six-foot high letters for all passersby to see.
The leading slogan candidate right now is “Your town slogan here.”
We’d also like to know about plans for submissions to a Honking Tree tribute page of art and essays. We want to plan for it but can’t if everyone sends something in at the last minute on the April 22 deadline.
We’ve given up on Twins fans in the area. There seems to be none.
Again, here are the details on slogans and Honking Tree fun.
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.”
Yes, we all love this early spring. But save some time and get involved in your community and the News-Chronicle this month.
It beats work.
