I just learned from Blue Man that a local treasure from my hometown is slatted to be torn down. Take a moment and add your name to the petition so that we can save a local treasure.

Grand Forks city council is talking about demolishing town's historic water tower. The water tower, named Mr. Smiley, has been greeting visitors and putting smiles on people's faces since the 1970s.
City council believes that stripping it of its current paint, and repainting would cost more than tearing it down, therefore demolishing it would be the best option.

It is unfortunate that we feel the need to destroy the unique local landmarks that make our town's special under the guise of saving a little bit of money.
