I cannot believe the proliferation of the new Ponoka ‘rooster’ logo. The town stated in your paper (Dec. 26, 2007) and I quote, “The new logo will not be replacing any previous logos” unquote.
Yet, the ‘rooster’ is used on official Ponoka town job advertisements in the Red Deer Advocate and on town trucks.
When we received the latest Ponoka visitor’s guide, we thought someone had suished a ketchup package on its cover until we deciphered the rooster.
I assume that some of the out of town influence that promoted the rooster was from the county (news and ad Jan. 16, 2008). Why haven’t they influenced the County to replace their Black Elk logo with the rooster?
After all, roosters are raised in the country.
I truly feel it is a shame that Ponoka, being fortunate to be able to relate its name to the public as an animal, does not continue to do so.
