Way back in the 1400s, the O'Dea family built a castle in Ireland. The nearly six-century old structure still stands and, if I do say so myself, looks pretty good for an edifice built by the Irish.
I began thinking about the castle the other day after observing McCook's emerging police, fire and administration building.
What a sight that is!
I've heard a lot of discussion about the city building, which has set me to thinking we should come up with a special name for the city's new center. Kent Kilpatrick calls it the "Taj Mahal." Is that the title we should settle for, or do you have a better idea?
Put your thinking caps on. If you come up with a good idea for naming the municipal building, mail it to: Densel O'Dea, % City Building Suggestions, 701 West L Street, McCook, NE 69001.
My colleague, Gene O. Morris, and I will ask a judging committee (made up of coffee break experts) to select the most popular title. We will then have a nice certificate printed and framed for presentation to McCook City Officials at the Municipal Building Dedication Ceremony.
Thanks. And keep those cards and letters coming.
