Chappie outlines goals, philosophy

by DAVID RICHIE

Staff writer

Despite noting what he called some “scary changes” in El Dorado County in recent years, newly seated District 4 Supervisor Gene Chappie told the Mountain Democrat Friday that he is not planning to charge recklessly into the government fray.

Instead the veteran of approximately 30 years of service on the local, state and national levels will be carefully working his way back into the routine.

“I’m going to devote a lot of time to talking to department heads,” Chappie said.

Chappie, 69, was appointed May 18 by Gov. George Deukmejian.

While recognizing that District 4 residents have a list of concerns, including zoning and land use issues, Chappie said he will be taking a countywide approach, attempting to make decisions that are in the best interests of all five districts.

The county needs a firmer direction on water issues and work must be done on the issue of ambient air quality, Chappie said.

Sportsmen Elect New Officers

Election of officers of the Rod and Gun Club and adoption of a resolution relative to opening date for trout fishing were the principal items of business at the club’s meeting at the Raffles Hotel May 24th.

L. D. Zelwick will serve as president for the coming year and will be assisted by a corps of officers which include Ray Weaver, vice president; Jack Berry, treasurer; Sandy Murray, secretary; and directors L. A. Raffetto, Rolland R. Gust, Ray A. Cayot, Charles F. Molinari and Dr. L. B. Rantz.

Bill Holton, representing the Placerville 20-30 Club, offered the aid of his club in sponsoring a fly casting tournament with a view to creating a new club activity. Rod and Gun Club members indicated an interest in the proposal and definite action as planned at the next meeting which is set for June 25 at the Raffles Hotel.

Decoration Day and its Realistic Observances

Last Saturday in blooming cemeteries of city and country, the Grand Army of the Republic held its annual reunion of the living and the dead. The great continental Republic it saved, saluted the living and wafted incense to departed Union soldiers in the clear upper sky. To them the heroes of other wars paid homage due to pre-eminent service and achievement. The old Empire county shook her banners out over all her sunny boarders and the first gun and drum-beat of the Civil War again reverberated among her hills. To the music of her Union Band, with her Grand Army Post, Fraternal societies, Fire Department and citizens, Placerville marched in the long procession that formed at Confidence Hall and deployed around the shaded square in the Union Cemetery.

Here memorial and literary exercises were programmed by general orders. Without minute details they were introduced by Hon. Chas. A. Swisler, President of the Day, in a brief and appropriate speech.
