Citizen of the Week
Don Matt has served the city and county for 30 years -- half a lifetime -- as caretaker of the county courthouse. At his celebration April 8, Don said he'd passed through Eureka on his way to Louisiana with a friend and paused to wonder what a person could do to make a living in Eureka. Lucky for us, he figured it out. When she proclaimed April 11 Don Matt Day in the city of Eureka Springs, Mayor Dani Joy praised Don's preservation of the building over the decades, his videography and Web site work, and his music. Plus he's a helluva nice guy. Thanks a heap, Don.
