You're driving down the freeway through Cedar City, Utah when something catches your attention.

In the corner of your eye, you see what seems to be a lighthouse.  "But how could that be?!", you ask yourself. "There's not a body of water anywhere near here!" So what's with the lighthouse?

The lighthouse is a landmark for the Providence shopping center. Nearby you find Walmart, Cafe Rio, Panda Express, Jack in the box and a number of other fine establishments.

Let's get a little creative and stupid at the same time. Let's come together as a community and name that lighthouse!
