Re: “UP considers a name change” (TNT, 8-18).
Changing the name of University Place to Chambers Bay makes no sense. Our history is in our name. The golf event is outstanding, but if someday a marathon originated at Curran Orchard should the name be changed again?
College Station, Texas, wanted to energize the community with a name change; the winner: Malfunction Junction. College Station stayed.
Let our City Council spend its energy acquiring solid businesses for the city and not painting a new name over University Place.
