Where the heck is ….?

Friday’s Mountain Democrat featured Doug Noble’s first in a series of historical and contemporary looks at communities throughout El Dorado County. It is called “Where the heck is …?”

The first community featured was Bucks Bar. And who would have known that the bridge, built in the 1940s, was actually built on the abutments built in 1915 after the community raised $700 and the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors spent $3,000.

It’s a good bet the next Bucks Bar Bridge isn’t going to be funded by bake sales and dances.

Doug’s “Where the heck is …?” column will appear as space allows. The next one is about Caldor. And where the heck is that? Keep reading the Mountain Democrat and you’ll soon find out. At 50 cents, we’re the best deal on the newstand.
