Good woman at Idaho-Maryland

I know a woman who worked on the survey crew in the tunnels of the Metro System in Washington, D.C. She moved to Grass Valley in 1988, and was part owner of Sierra Western Engineering. Was President of Habitat for Humanity. Member, Nevada City Rotary. Was a member of The Grass Valley Planning Commission before being hired by Idaho-Maryland Corp. Eleanor Kenitzer does not have a secret agenda, she just likes mining. And Eleanor recuses herself on any voting, as a Commissioner, that comes up with the Idaho-Maryland Mining concerns. She was voted in Chairwoman of the Board for the Grass Valley/Nevada County Chamber of Commerce last December. In 1990 started up Cornish Choir, the male Choir in ’94. She’s director of traditional music at Nevada City Methodist Church, president of Cornish Cousins this year and co-chaired with me for the annual Old-Timers (Gold Miners) Christmas Dinner. Eleanor has enriched Nevada County with her talent and civic duties.

Can Greg Martin or John Palmer profess same?
