Week 36, #1

September 3rd, 2007 by dk

Let’s not let the Eugene Celebration become (or remain) the South Eugene Celebration. The city divides itself roughly into thirds, with the river and railroad dividing south Eugene from north Eugene and northwest Eugene. We can each do our part to make sure the party is as inclusive as it can be, by inviting somebody from another part of town (or even from Springfield!) to meet us this weekend for some fun. The theme chides us to “Lighten Up!” with hot air balloons. Considering the river and the other less tangible factors that divide us, I hope we’ll all go a step further and “Get Over It!”

One of these four ideas will be developed into a column on Wednesday to be published in The Register-Guard on Friday. I’m asking you to help me choose between them. Between now and the end of Tuesday, leave comments here or send me an e-mail if you’d rather be more private. Or, at the very least, RATE the idea (and the others) so I know which one people like best. No promises, though. This ain’t American Idol. But I will post an entry on Wednesday to say which one I’m choosing (and probably why.) I plan to do this each week — often by Friday, but always by Monday, so visit often and tell me which idea intrigues you the most. Thanks!
