TIE-DYE TOWN WINNER NAMED - Diana Cox (from right), general manager of Sonic in Walnut Ridge, presents the Tie-Dye the Town exterior trophy to Carrie Mae Snapp, owner of Imagine, and Diane Midkiff, who helped paint the windows at the shop. Sonic was last year's winner. There were no entries in the interior division, so last year's winner, ImageZ Salon and Tanning, will retain the trophy for another year. Judging is complete, but businesses can still participate in Tie-Dye the Town, which is held in conjunction with the Beatles at the Ridge Festival set for Sept. 20-21 in downtown Walnut Ridge.
