Four Eurekans nominated Carol Friesen as this week's COW. "Carol owns Tummy Ticklers, belongs to the Rotary Club, the Chamber of Commerce, the Merchants Alliance, the Mayor's Tourism Task Force and heads the Christmas Decorating committee. She has spearheaded free parking for the holidays for several years and deserves credit for getting 99 percent of the downtown merchants to stay open late on weekends. She sponsors the annual "Merry Ginger-Eureka Christmas" baking/building contest and helped to put together about a zillion Christmas ornament baskets for decorations downtown. If we had 10 'Carols' in town, we could challenge Santa's elves!"
