A 9 year old uses his time off from school to help sweep, clean Eureka with a great attitude and enthusiasm
Robert said he is doing this to help beautify Eureka. Teresa said she wants her son to see what a good person and role model "Bob is and learn from him."
Robert and Teresa have been friends for 30 years. Teresa is retired from Humboldt County Superior Court. I asked Tyler if mom made him help and Tyler told me he wanted to help.
Tyler didn't even want ice cream which I tried to suggest as a reward, but mom is taking him for a steak dinner. Tyler told me he found two empty whiskey bottles, over 30 cigarette butts just in this parking lot. I won't mention what else they had to pick up and clean up.
They are going to try and do this at least once a month and pick different locations in Eureka. If you are interested in joining them, contact Robert on facebook.
