Morris should stay town symbol

To the editor:

Help me understand the decision to leave Morris bare of announcements. The argument was that advertising detracted from the town image, but the Morris postings were highlighting events that make Tryon special. Surely Morris was proud to herald the coming of the Steeplechase, the barbecue festival, why, even April Fools Day.

A town idiosyncratic enough to hang old ties between light posts surely has the soul to the show off our treasured events. Morris is a distinctive town symbol. Allow him to display our unique events.
