A good slate of readers chimed in on the call for Two Harbors water tower slogans. The newly formed arts and beautification committee is charged with coming up with a color scheme and slogan for the water tower going up in the industrial park.
It asked the News-Chronicle to help it compile a list of possible sayings and we are glad to report some good suggestions.
It seems a movement has begun as well. Last week, the city council discussed creating a new city logo and it is also looking for help from residents. Who knew the city needed a slogan or a logo?
While it gets trickier when it comes to artistic dreams, send us your sketch or a description of what you’d like to see in a city logo.
The tower will say “Two Harbors” but the rest is up to the committee. Here are some of the slogan ideas sent to us the past few weeks:
- Nancy Hopper says the tower should have a simple saying, “Two Harbors is Home.” Then a sign should be put where the Honking Tree once stood. “Almost Home,” she said.
- Louise Thureen suggested “Where Your North Shore Experience Begins.”
- Wayne Seidel and his family created a think tank and came up with six suggestions. “Up North Dreams Begin Here,” “A Superior Way of Life,” “Yours to Discover,” “A Superior Location,” “Got North?” and “A Superior Lifestyle.”
- Mel Sando, who runs the lake County Historical Society, said the tower has to have maroon and gold letters to match the colors of the old DM&IR Railroad that dominated life in Two Harbors until the 1960s. It’s also the colors used at the high school. ‘That is a done deal,” he said with authority. His slogan suggestions are “The Agate City,” or “The Iron Port.”
- Terry Johnson suggests “Gateway to the Voyageurs Country,” which were once the words on the steel arch downtown at First Avenue and today’s Waterfront Drive.
- Dave Bergerson suggests “Lake Superior, Inside and Out,” or “Liquid Assets.”
- April Laakkonen was a bit wordy, but wanted to play off the Two Harbors name. “Double Your Fun,” she suggests, or “Harbor Views So Good, There Are Two of Them,” and “Nothing Is Closer To the Water Than Our Two Harbors.”
The arts and beautification committee will discuss the suggestions at its meeting this week. It will send a recommendations to the city council as the tower goes up this summer and will soon be ready for paint and letters.
