Cape Codders have asked some pretty cool questions over the last few months. We've had fun answering them like: What is Scargo Tower all about? and Is Cape Cod an island or a peninsula?
Now, Curious Cape Cod needs more questions and for you to tell us which of these next 3 we should answer next. (Click the check mark to vote and read more about how they were chosen below)
The latest round of voting in the Curious Cape Cod reader engagement experiment has begun. In the last round, we asked readers to vote for their favorite of three questions sent in by readers. The winner: Why do the Route 28 road signs indicate north and south when most of the road is east and west?
While we look for an answer to that question, below are three others from which to pick:
■ The practice of giving names to the Barnstable school buses: Does any other town do it? When did it begin? What do the names mean?
■ What did the Cape look like when the Pilgrims arrived? How did the foliage (trees), wildlife (seals, sharks, whales) differ from today?
■ We have a few pieces of unique driftwood that we believe are collectible items. Whom can we contact to try sell them?
Deadline for voting is Monday. Oct 15.
Meanwhile, we’re looking for more reader input. To ask a question, vote or see what other questions have been asked, visit www.capecodtimes.com/curiouscapecod
