Citizen of the Week
Citizen of the Week
Ambassador for Eureka Springs -- that's what the anonymous nominator said is the perfect description of this week's Citizen of the Week, Jerry Yester. Jerry has lived a lot of places, but Northwest Arkansas, as he's been known to say, "really soothes his soul." A local resident for about the last 20 years, Jerry's claim to fame is that he is a long-time member of The Lovin' Spoonful, a band best known for the 1960s hit song, "Do You Believe in Magic." Earlier in his career he also played with The New Christy Minstrels. ...
What do YOU think?
If there were to be a reality show about Eureka Springs, who would make the best character(s) for cameras to follow around?
Wendi La Fey
I've always thought that cameras should follow me around, because my life is so amazing, that I'd like to share it with everyone!
Zeek Taylor and Mary Springer. They're very colorful, multi-talented characters.
The "June Bugs," myself and June Owen, because we're both over 80 and we don't sit home, we get out and have FUN!
I would be just me, when you get as old as I am, I don't want to pretend.
Valerie Damon, because she would be one to follow, it'd be like Ripley's, but it'd be Eureka's Believe It Or Not!
"1/3 of a Tree"
I think the best character is Wendi La Fey. I think she's an incredible dancer and an interesting person.
