Mountain Democrat, Dec. 2, 1988

Kinkade to present slide show

One thousand prints of Thomas Kinkade’s new painting “Placerville in the Snow” have been purchased through the Mountain Democrat. Reaching that goal means the original painting will stay in Placerville.

The painting is on display in the lobby of the Mountain Democrat. The 1,000-mark reached Tuesday night when Kinkade signed prints at the Mountain Democrat. Several hundred people showed up to have prints signed and sample pastries from Hangtown Bakery. For those interested in knowing how “Placerville in the Snow” was made, Kinkade will present a slide show and talk 6:30 p.m. Dec. 4 at First Assembly of God Church, 3500 Missouri Flat Road.

National Guard Unit Seeks Enlistments

Lt. Earl G. Sawyer, of Company C, 184th Infantry, with headquarters in Placerville, this week announced that the unit is seeking enlistments in keeping with an announcement from Washington upping California’s National Guard quota.

Lt. Sawyer pointed out that enlistees from ages 17 to 18 1/2 who sign up for three years of active duty with the guard unit remain exempt from the Selective Service draft for three years after their guard enlistment.

 

Siphoned Tank Endangers Pilot

Gasoline thieves who siphoned the tanks of two airplanes at the Placerville Airport, then bent the sight gauge indicators to register “full” tanks, nearly caused a tragic accident Saturday when one of the planes “conked out” while taxiing for takeoff.

Sid Ward, pilot owner, was taxiing his Ercoupe preparatory to take off when he noticed erratic action of the engine. About that time the sight gauge fuel indicator dropped to the bottom of the tank and he came back to the parking area. Check of the sight gauge, a vertical wire indicator mounted on a float in the gas tank, disclosed it had been bent.

The other Ercoupe, belonging to C. S. Collins, also had been drained and the sight gauge bent.

Married in San Francisco

The wedding of Miss Edna Frank of San Francisco and our popular townsman Max Mierson, took place at the Sorosis club in that city last Thursday at 2 p.m.

It was a white wedding, the rooms, which are well adopted for the affair of this kind, having been artistically decorated with white chrysanthemums and delicate sprays of green by a professional decorator. At the hour appointed the wedding party entered the reception room from the hall to the strains of “Lohengrin,” played by a stringed orchestra. Mr. A. Mierson, father of the groom, entering in company with Mrs. Frank, the mother of the bride.

The bride’s gown was of white crape de chine trimmed with rare point lace; she wore a veil and carried a shower bouquet of lilies of the valley. After the ceremony performed by Rabbi Voorsanger according to Jewish ritual, which was beautifully solemn and impressive, the happy couple received the congratulations of those present.

They arrived in Placerville Thursday and are occupying the residence of Mrs. Annie Carpenter, on Bedford Avenue, were they were tendered a hearty reception by their friends.
