WASHINGTON STATE QUARTER DESIGNS PANNED

Every coin design has its critics. An article from
Vancouver, WA discusses one politician's beefs with the
proposed designs for the Washington state quarter:

"Vancouver Mayor Royce Pollard said none of the three
designs shows much creativity and he won't be adding
the final coin to his collection.

Southwest Washington certainly didn't get any recognition
among the finalists. Two of the three designs feature Mount
Rainier, even though Mount St. Helens arguably is the most
famous of Washington's volcanoes.

The other is an American Indian-style drawing of a
killer whale.

"Not a lot of imagination there," Pollard said of the
three designs chosen from thousands of entries.

"You have to wonder what they had to choose from. I
wouldn't pick any of them."
