Dry weather advances burn permit date

Only a week ago fire officials said severe danger might mean requiring burn permits earlier than usual and, as of today, the requirement has become a reality.

Anyone who wants to clean their property of debris, pine needles, brush or the like, and has put the job off must now obtain a burn permit. The usual May 1 date has been moved ahead a month, because low rainfall and extremely dry and windy conditions has turned El Dorado County wild-lands into a disaster waiting to happen.

The date change probably means an “onslaught” of people will converge upon local fire department stations and California Department of Forestry stations beginning today, according to Barb Dashiell, CDF fire prevention officer.

“Because people generally wait until the last-minute, this is the time of the year when people usually burn,” said Dashiell. “So since we’ve sprung this on them so unexpectedly, we’re expecting lots of crowding at the stations.” …

Wool Sign-Up Near Close

The county wool pool this year may reach eight thousand fleeces, making it a record-breaker for recent years.

This is according to Roy Marks, chairman of the sheep department of the county Farm Bureau and one of those active in organizing the pool.

Following a meeting of wool growers on Friday at the Farm Advisor’s office at which it was voted to form a pool again this year, Mr. Marks said that the next order of business is the completion of the pool and the launching of a call for bids.

Sheep men who wish to be included in the pool should communicate with Mr. Marks, either at his home, or in care of the Farm Advisor’s office. Mr. Marks urged that the sign-up should be completed as promptly as possible.

“At this present time,” he said, “the prospect is for between six thousand and seven thousand sheep fleeces and about one thousand mohair fleeces.” …

“Bi Bi” at the Opera House

The Opera House was filled last Saturday evening, with an interested audience who witnessed the production of Bi Bi, the spectacular Comedy of Toys which has been given in every town of any size in this and every other State. As elsewhere, it proved a drawing card here, and an enjoyable entertainment throughout; so much so that the management decided to repeat it on the evening of the 5th next Monday, to give those who did not attend an opportunity of doing so. Where all the characters are so well sustained it is difficult to specify any role, but those of Edna Day, the toymaker’s daughter, Blanche Kern as the rag doll, Edwina Anderson as Topsy, Mrs. J. E. Fox as the doll’s head and Miss Gertrude Kirk as the Fairy, were so well adapted that they could not be improved upon. One of the most melodious and pleasing numbers on the programme was the duet between Bi Bi, Miss Anda Irwin, and the Man in the Moon, Walter Green … Mrs. S. H. Rantz officiated as accompanist, and partly to her credit be it said, that there was not a hitch in the evening’s programme. The receipts were something over $200, a per cent of which will be added to the treasury of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
