RAGBRAI 'Shake & Bake' in Cherokee

Monday, April 2, 2012

Cherokee City Administrator Don Eikmeier, left, questions Mayor Mark Murphy about his recent decree that all City employees must wear baker's hats 24-7 now through RAGBRAI XL that rolls into Cherokee Sunday, July 22. The Mayor created the City's official RAGBRAI slogan to greet the bicyclists - "Shake & Bake Your Bootie in Cherokee" - and said he thought the baker's hats would "fit the bill." To cap it all off, many City employees have flipped their lids over the decree and have been seen after hours without their baker's hats on. Let's hope such head-strong insubordination is met head-on and cooler heads prevail, or, as the Mayor indicated, heads will roll!

Uh, just a heads up, - Sunday was April Fools Day.
