Citizen of the Week

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

This week's COW is our own Chip Ford and his family. The Fords enjoyed an entire evening of impromptu animal rescue earlier in the week. While Chip was trying to head home, he encountered and spent most of the evening corralling three horses from getting killed in traffic and helping locate their owners up near Golden, Mo. Meanwhile, back in Eureka, Rachel and Ryley Ford (3) risked life and limb to rescue an injured poodle from traffic on Onyx Cave Road and then searched high and low for its owner. A clue came from the owners of Freakin' Eurekan, who described a lady "with rainbow-colored hair" who was looking for a lost dog, and who fed and watered the poor little thing and put out a "LOST DOG FOUND" sign on the street. Salvation came when Chip recognized the description of the rainbow-hued citizen and put her in touch with her missing pooch. Thanks you guys!
