The roadway almost sounded like it should be lined with dentist offices.
Up until about a month ago when it was pointed out to us and we ran a photo, the sign carried the lettering mistake. But now a corrected second-generation sign sits on the corner.
It’s always good to think twice on such things.
A few months ago we created and posted online our Herald local style guide for everyone in the community to access. We compiled it for our own use, but we wanted to make it available for anyone to use as a resource.
The guide is an evolving list of things around the county, such as the exact name of the Greater Sanford Regional Chamber of Commerce and the correct spelling of the Floridan Aquifer.
This week we updated the guide with more than a dozen new entries for things such as BBee’s Home Cooking, a Sanford restaurant, and ReStore, the resale store operated by Habitat for Humanity.
If you’d like to check out the list, go to our website at www.MySanfordHerald.com.
On that first page, look down on the bottom left for the “Stylebook” button to click. (If you haven’t already done so, you will need to register to access the website.)
If you know of any local additions that should be in the guide, please let me know at the address below.
Swing and a miss
We had some good guesses, but no correct answers for the baseball trivia question we posed last weekend to win tickets to the River Rats season opener.
The question: The players who share this last name have hit the most total home runs in the majors. What last name is it?
Ted, Billy, Bernie, Matt and several others share the last name that answers the question, which, of course, is: Williams.
Sanford Slogo Contest
Last weekend we announced the Sanford Slogo Contest to find a new city slogan and logo, given that a four-year city search came up empty-handed.
Commissioners decided to continue using the longtime riverboat design with the slogan “Historic Waterfront Gateway.”
But we were wondering if there might be some fresh new ideas out there to consider. So here’s your chance.
Submit your design and/or word ideas to my address below by the end of June. You could win a $25 gift certificate to Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Café for a winning entry in either category. Put “Slogo” in the subject field so I know what to look for. The judges are standing by waiting for your pearls of wisdom.
Just to let you know, here’s one of the slogan entries so far: Sanford, Your Natural Harbor.
