It’s a ‘Blast from the Past’

The Mountain Democrat and KHTN FM Radio are sponsoring a “Blast from the Past Car Show,” which will give new meaning to “Cruise’n the fairgrounds” this 4th of July.

Part of the Mother Lode Big Brothers and Sisters “Blast ’88″ family fun day and fireworks extravaganza, the car show will feature pre-1965 cars and trucks and a special category of “muscle cars” vintage to 1970.

Owners of custom, classic and vintage automobiles are encouraged to enter their vehicles in the show at no charge, and entrants will receive free admission to the Blast …

The car show begins at 2 p.m. and runs until 10 p.m. when the fireworks start. Prizes and trophies have been donated by local merchants, and Coca Cola of Placerville will provide Coke products to be given away in random drawings throughout the day.

Sheriff Hurt As Car Overturns

Sheriff Lowell O. West is a patient at a hospital in Sacramento for the treatment of injuries suffered late Thursday night or early Wednesday morning when his official car overturned on Highway 50 about three-quarters of a mile west of Deer Creek.

Mr. West suffered fractures of his second to the eighth ribs on the left side, a lacerated ear and other cuts and bruises. The car described as badly wrecked, was brought to Placerville to Frey’s Serving Garage …

While the ambulance was being summoned, Dr. Jean Babcock passed the scene en-route to Sacramento and gave first aid attention following which the sheriff was removed to the hospital.

Having a Jolly Time

A note received from our party of World’s Fair excursionists evidences the fact that they are having a pleasant time, and are in the best of health and spirits. A letter to friends, received since that communication, states that at Ogden they hunted up Ed Congdon, another Placervillain, and he did not require much urging to accompany them to Salt Lake and remain during their stay there.
