the ballot to name the newest Arconic eaglets

Voting is now open to choose names for the two newest residents of Riverdale. The eaglets were born last month in a nest high up in a tree near Arconic's Davenport Works. 

Arconic accepted suggestions, and narrowed them down to five, and two of the pairs have very local ties. Genesis & Trinity were nominated to honor local health care workers during the pandemic. Also on the ballot are Analiese and Terry - they represent Analiese Chapman, the Riverdale Firefighter who passed away a few months ago, and Hampton Police Chief Terry Engle who died in a car crash while responding to a call. 

You can only vote once, and voting will continue through next Thursday, May 14th. The winning names will be announced the following day. 

The ballot is at www.arconic.com/eaglecam

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
