Mining reclamation fee waiver denied

The recent recipient of a special use permit sanctioning El Dorado County’s first open-pit gold mining operation in several years will be required to pay the county a $250 reclamation plan fee. Joseph V. Flynn’s request to be exempted from the processing cost was denied by a unanimous vote of the county’s Board of Supervisors Sept. 20.

Flynn contended that future reclamation of the Blue Rock Mine tailings he and his brother Robert expect to work will entail only the trundling of a few wheelbarrow loads of tailings and the planting of a few trees. He remitted the $250 fee when it was requested, but attached a letter asking exemption from the payment.

Planning Director Larry Walrod recommended that the supervisors deny the request, reporting that the $250 would not fully cover the cost of processing the fee as required by the State Mining and Reclamation Act.

Capital Artist Club Speaker

Wallace B. Sawyer, Sacramento artist, paid a visit to his old home town on Tuesday when he came to Placerville to be the guest speaker at the regular program meeting of the Shakespeare Club, and to display some of his numerous western paintings.

Mr. Sawyer addressed the club at the invitation of the program chairman, Mrs. Robert Carpenter and the meeting proved to be an unusually pleasant affair and one thoroughly enjoyed by the large number of members in attendance.

In his opening remarks the artist spoke of the friendship of the Sawyer family with the Blair, Pearson, Wilcox, Phillips, Lyon and other old families of the community.

Although the Crocker Art Gallery has the pick of his paintings currently on display the large number which he displayed for the club members showed the skill which he possesses in portraying the changeable lights and colorings in Death Valley and other desert regions of California and Colorado.

Board of Trade Entertains Commissioner Ellery

The business men of the county, members of the Board of Trade and all invited guests, met at the City Hall Monday night to entertain Nathaniel Ellery, State Highway Commissioner. President Max Mierson called the meeting to order and said that the object of the meeting was to listen to a report of the committees sent by the Board of Trade to the Good Roads Congress held at Sacramento last Saturday, and also to listen to a few remarks by the State Engineer.

Mr. Ellery then addressed the assembly, giving technical details, connected with the building and carrying on of the public highways. He said, in his judgement, that the state would do well to expend millions of dollars in building permanent roads to open up scenic sections of the Sierra Nevada mountains, making them easily reached from both the valleys and the coast. He declared himself in the favor of extending the Lake Tahoe road to Sacramento Valley regardless of any other road project.
