New deputy positions to get contingency funding

The El Dorado County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to scrap a proposed plan to fund two new Sheriff’s Deputy II positions with money from the River Management Trust Fund. Those additional positions were approved by the supervisors Dec. 1 and County Counsel was instructed to look into the possibility of drawing $34,023 needed to finance the two position from the river management fund …

“I have gone over this subject in some detail with Bill Wright in the County Council’s office. In a nutshell, it is the County Council’s opinion that without a detailed workload statistics from the Sheriff’s Department that provide a clear picture of the impact rafting on the American River has on Sheriff’s patrol, it is not permissible to use River Management Trust Funds to finance the addition of two new deputies,” a memo to the supervisors from Kent Taylor, county chief administrative officer states …

In addition to recommending that the two new positions be initially funded from county contingency funds, Taylor also recommended that any future evaluation of the river management plan also scrutinize the impacts on rafting activity on the Sheriff’s patrol.

Masonic Remembrances

The usual work of the consolidated lodges of F. and A. Masons was varied on Thursday evening last by a very happy event, when Dr. S. H. Rantz, Past Master of Palmyra, and R. P. Patterson, Past Master of El Dorado Lodge, were presented with elegant jewels appropriate to this — the highest office in the gift of the Lodge, and one which these gentlemen have filled so ably. The presentation was made by C. A. Swisler and voiced the sentiments of the members … The jewels which are alike and emblematic in design, were ordered through F.F. Barss & Son and are works of the jeweler’s art; the open square and compass, bearing the effulgent sun, hang pendent from the crossed gavel and trowel, the whole surrounded by a gold bar pin in the center of which are the monograms enameled in colors; underneath the pin and at the top of the compass is set a solitaire diamond giving added brilliancy. The jewels are about four inches in length and are suitably inscribed on the back with the names and date of the presentation …
