Citizen of the Week

Wednesday, December 23, 2009

This week's Citizen of the Week is Inez Goforth. Her nominator says she worked cheerfully to improve the lives of her family and the lives of her fellow Eurekans. "As a proprietor of the Basin Park Hotel, beginning in 1944, Inez, and her husband Joe Parkhill, recognized how difficult harsh winters can be for older, single locals. They invited them to take communal shelter in the hotel at reduced monthly rates. On the family level, she has always been a second mother to me. I thank her for her positive influence on my character, outlook and work ethic." Merry Christmas Inez.
