As you may know, the newspaper’s biggest issue of the year is coming up on Thanksgiving Day, and this year we’re running a name-the-turkey contest. For a few weeks, readers nominated names for the turkey (one thoughtfully suggested Dan Casey). You can see the nominations at the previous link.
Now our marketing gurus have winnowed those down to the top 10 suggestions (alas, yours truly didn’t make that cut). Now we’re in the voting phase, which runs through Thursday. And here are the top choices.
• Mr. Gobble Down
• Star Bird
• Milly (After Mill Mountain)
• Times Trotter
• R. Gobble Times (R. is for Roanoke!)
You can vote for you favorite name here. The winner of the most votes will get a $250 Kroger gift card. The 9 runners up will get a $25 card.
