Deputy state AG appointed judge
By DAVIDE RICHIE
Georgetown resident Ed T. Keller is El Dorado County’s newest Superior Court judge.
Keller confirmed reports about the appointment by Gov. George Deukmejian during a telephone interview with the Mountain Democrat Thursday afternoon. He was contacted at the state Attorney General’s office in Sacramento where he has worked since 1968.
“It’s a fact,” Keller said. “I’m very thrilled and honored.”
Keller said that he was notified of the appointment Thursday morning but was asked to keep the appointment quiet until the governor had made a formal announcement.
Keller, 48, came to El Dorado County in 1975. He has served on the Black Oak Mine Unified School District board since 1977 and is currently serving on the El Dorado County School Boards Association.
Living in Georgetown has been a pleasure, Keller noted, calling the area “God’s gift to the world.”

Irving Attends Co-Op Meeting
A joint meeting of the American Institute of Cooperatives and the National Council of Farmers’ Cooperatives, at Cleveland, Ohio, called James A. Irving east this week.
Mr. Irving is attending the conference as the president of the California Fruit Exchange which, with other farm cooperatives of the country is interested in the position of the non-profit co-ops in relation to current national tax problems.
The Cleveland meeting was to be concerned with this problem generally and, with the two national organizations represented, was expected to represent virtually every non-profit farm co-operative in the country.
Following the Cleveland conference Mr. Irving will continue to New York, Boston and Chicago to contact firms and individuals in those areas who are marketing the varied fruit products of the California Fruit Exchange.

S. G. Beach & Co. keep adding to their already extensive works on Sacramento street. This is now one of the best equipped Planing Mills in the State, fitted up with the very best wood working machinery, both for the purpose of getting out all kinds of house finishing, and an extra quality of box lumber. Their new Stenciling and Box Board Printer is one of the best in the State and adds greatly to the looks of the boxes. This firm can finish all kinds of builders materials, from the heaviest sills and timbers to the finest moldings and brackets. There is not much guess work about their ability to do work rapidly and at reasonable terms after taking a look through their works and sizing up their way of doing things and line of business.
