Louis Tacconelli, an investor in the project, said that at a previous Planning Commission meeting, developers were led to believe there would be no problems with the project. He added that a $175,000 loan for the project is now costing $200 a day …

Miss Tinney Is Summoned

Miss Hannah Tinney, 74, a native of Gold Hill and life-long resident of El Dorado County, passed away Wednesday at Placerville Sanatorium where she had been a patient for the previous week.

The funeral service will be at ten o’clock Saturday morning at St. Patrick Church. Internment will be at the family plot in the cemetery adjoining the church building.

Miss Tinney spent her earlier life in the Gold Hill district and moved to Placerville about thirty years ago, making her home since that time on Coloma Street with her sister Claire Tinney, to whom she was a devoted companion.

She is survived by one brother, John H. Tinney, and two sisters, Mrs. Elizabeth Akin, of Sacramento, and Miss Claire Tinney, of this city.

She also is survived by … Leo Akin, of the old home place at Gold Hill …

The rosary will be recited on Friday evening at eight o’clock at Memory Chapel.
