Restin’ Easy has New Owner

by Thel­ma Louise McCoy
The mys­tery sur­round­ing all that activ­i­ty out on the high­way at the north end of town is solved. The Restin’ Easy Motel has a new own­er. San­jit “Roy” Patel told The Ger­maine Truth that he plans to have the motel ready for busi­ness by July Fourth. Roy, as he prefers to be known, comes to us from up Burns way where he has been learn­ing the motel trade from his broth­er. When The Truth caught up with Patel he was apply­ing a fresh coat of paint to the lob­by, but he took time out to give us a tour of the prop­er­ty, which has been board­ed up since the unfor­tur­nate inci­dent two years ago.

The motel will have 12 guest rooms com­pared to the 16 it had pre­vi­ous­ly. Patel has con­vert­ed four rooms into a cozy and charm­ing home for his fam­i­ly. Many love­ly Indi­an items grace the walls of his liv­ing room. Though his wife, Anoo­ra, does not speak Eng­lish, she was very friend­ly and offered tea and some inter­est­ing deep-fried veg­eta­bles, which Roy referred to as Pako­ra.

The Patels have four chil­dren, Roy, 15, Ana, 13, Suzee, 9, and Jim, 8. The chil­dren say they are look­ing for­ward to attend­ing Ger­maine schools in the fall.

Please stop by the Restin’ Easy and wel­come the Patels to Ger­maine.
