Normal, Mn. funds Youth Activities---Switches to Plastic Flowers: FICTION
Breaking news out of Normal, Mn.---the Normal, Mn. City Council met last night and decided that, because they were in the midst of a budget crunch that threatened to halt all youth programs...they would switch from the extensive flower arranging program with natural flowers that had incurred considerable expense of flowers and watering staff hours, and decided boldly to purchase plastic flowers and move the money to fund youth activities....they also reluctantly recognized that a summer drama program was not really a national city branding marketing program and sought private funding for this expense.
