New life for an old clock on Cherokee?

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Preliminary plans are afoot to reface and relight the old Gorham's Beauty Salon clock that stands on the sidewalk in the 2700 block of Cherokee Street.  Given its high-profile location, a group of Cherokee stakeholders have committed to taking this project on as a testament to the district's recent reinvestment and resurgence.  

The restoration of the clock will improve the Cherokee streetscape in a number of ways: 
1) It will brighten the sidewalks
2) It will tell time (the correct time!)
3) New face plates will reflect the creative culture that flourishes here
4) It will preserve and celebrate a piece of Cherokee's history
5) It will become an identifiable landmark that will enhance the sense of place and community

But there's still a lot of work to be done!  Artists, designers and visionaries-- what do you want the clock to look like?  Please send your ideas, sketches, graphics or questions to info[at] so we can get the ball rolling.  Remember, there are three face plates on each side of the clock.  The Cherokee Station Business Association will consider all designs. 

Restoring this clock is a small project that we feel will make huge impact on the street.  Let your creativity run wild, and send your ideas our way!

When this occurs you computer will slow and be unresponsive and will eventually crash.

With a registry cleaner, you will no longer physically erase outdated records because the cleaner will perform
the task for you. It can occur during everyday usage,
when you install new programs, when windows updates automatically
install themselves and for many other reasons as well.

Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Appreciate it on 07-Dec-2013 04:58 AM

The two leaders will also debate david cameron the situation in his divided country, the challenges he is facing as the country's 52nd prime minister and fellow Oxford graduateNick Clegg.

Mr Fallon told BBC News:" The Prime Minister will confront Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond in October last year. This would improve the ability of the state to snoop on ordinary people".

And it makes a higher harvest with the foods involved.

You can use the river for your garden to attenuate the waste, but 360 liters
would be to much for a normal sized garden. It is very important that you know what is within the water before you decide to expose either fish or
plants to it.
