Who would you name something for?


Naming things after celebrities brings up all sorts of possibilities, mostly because celebrities dote on attention, and often show up when anything -- from an elementary school to a star on the sidewalk -- has their name on it.

Our fair city can always use the positive attention.

I suggested we might look for some new names on such items as the 13th Street Bridge, which links Augusta and North Augusta, S.C.

I think the Calhoun Expressway is good for renaming.

And someone else has suggested naming Walton Way Extension (and Davis Road) after Jack Nicklaus. Such a suggestion drew notice, and the usual competitive response of “What about Arnold Palmer Parkway?”

Well, what do you think?

What do we have around town that we can easily name for somebody famous, and get them to show up for dedication?

On a negative note, the James Brown statue comes to mind.

By the time Marion Williams is done with it, we might have to rename it the Marion Williams James Brown Statue.
