The reasoning behind the winning entry was logic itself--whatever the new park's official name, most people will call it the park on Main, said Dean Busching, who with his wife Kristi submitted the winning entry. That name was only one of a number of ideas they considered and entered; "we rejected nothing," Dean said. Well, maybe one was discarded "'! think we did reject Mr. Rainier National Park," he said. The contest drew 66 entries, 28 from children, said city administrative worker Tina Jones. Kim Moore's third grade class had a lot of different ideas, including Puzzle Piece Park, Other suggestions from contestants included Cornerstone Park and Tiny Park. Other people, inspired by the waterfall fountain in the new park, suggested Triangle Falls and Brewster Falls. People suggested naming the park in honor of George Wilson or the Gamble family, or in memory of Jimmy Wick or Todd Moses. One person suggested naming the park for John Bruster, the town's founder. All of the entries were submitted to the people who donated money for the park's construction. Jones said. The six entries that received the most votes were sent to a selection committee, consisting of Mayor Bonnie House and her staff. The Buschings will receive $100 for their winning entry. A plaque with the name, and the doners' names, will be placed in the park. The Park on Main was created from a vacant lot: the weeds and bare dirt have been replaced with grass and a fountain.
