The first of the customized boll weevil replicas have arrived. In honor of the Centennial Celebration of the world’s only monument to a pest, the five feet tall police officer-weevil and mayor-weevil were posted in front of the Enterprise City Hall Tuesday, April 16. Unveiled in a public ceremony Jan. 31, the plastic replicas were inspired by the custom-decorated “Dothan Peanuts Around Town” project in Dothan and the “Pelicans in Paradise” in Pensacola, Fla. “I can envision ‘unbollweevible’ growth for the project here as well,” said Enterprise Tourism Director Tammy Doerer at the unveiling. “In fact, like the appearance of peanuts thriving in local fields in 1919, I expect Enterprise will have a whole ‘crop’ of boll weevils very soon.”
