Happy Valley rezoned

Half a loaf being better than none, everyone concerned about the rezoning of 139 acres on Happy Valley Road should be satisfied by the action of the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors Jan. 17.

The board voted to allow 40-acre minimum residential agricultural parcel sizes, twice as large as those recommended by the county Planning Commission but half as large as those required under existing zoning.

County associate planner Sharon Lester had made an alternate recommendation allowing 40-acre parcels. Her staff report referred to the good quality of the agricultural soil and the threat to deer herds in the area from more intensive use, among other issues.

Supervisor Pat Lowe proposed that the board accept Lester’s recommendation of 40-acre minimum sizes and was supported by members Bob Dorr and John Cefalu. Supervisors Jack Sweeney and Mike Visman opposed the motion.

Shelly Inch Succumbs

The many friends of Shelly Inch, Sr., were shocked Monday morning to learn that he had passed away on Friday at the Bay District, where he has made his home since 1914.

Mr. Inch was a native of Amador County, born more than eighty-five years ago, who as a young man came to this county and became one of its outstanding business men and civic, fraternal and political leaders.

He was secretary for many years of the County Board of Trade, was the owner of one of the earlier telephone systems in the community, operated the stationery business which he sold to Mrs. Christine Bayne in 1913, and was for many years Placerville’s postmaster.

He was a member of various fraternal orders including El Dorado Lodge No. 26, F.A.M., in which he became a Master Mason in 1878. He also was a member of St. James Chapter No. 16, R.A.M., and of El Dorado Commandery No. 4, K.T., and of Fallen Leaf Chapter No. 90, O.E.S.

El Dorado Burglary

Last Sunday night the store of Jas. Askew at the town of El Dorado was entered from the rear, first through a window into an outside and then by prying the door of the main building up and off the hinges. The burglary is presumed to have been committed by some resident or residents of the neighborhood, who evidently had been watching and knew that money was left in the till that night. They obtained about $120 in currency and gold dust. Parties suspected were arrested and upon establishing alibis were discharged. Sheriff Bosquit is working upon an entirely different clue, and expects to have the guilty parties as guests of his hotel, for the coming season, ere long.

 

Death of Conrad Uhlenkamp

Another pioneer of El Dorado County has died of the prevailing epidemic. At his home in Green Valley, Thursday morning of this week, while Dr. Rantz was on his way thither, the subject of this sketch passed suddenly away.

He was a native of Germany and came to this country in 1852, where he has resided 47 years. He was 75 years of age and leaves two daughters, Mesdames Kohn and Smith and one son, C. T. Uhlenkamp, the Lotus merchant, to care for an invalid mother.
