Pea Soup Anderson’s moving forward again

By JOHN SAMMON

Development of a local Pea Soup Anderson’s restaurant and hotel reportedly is back on track, after delays caused by Anderson’s bankruptcy reorganization under chapter 11.

“We have a management contract with the developer and we’re waiting for a signature on it,” said Anderson’s president and chief executive officer Chuck White from corporate headquarters in Carlsbad.

“I think it will be a great thing. It’s a beautiful property and the facility will be our largest restaurant yet, with a lot of retail and a 100-plus room hotel.

The proposed Anderson’s is to be located on 7-1/2 acres north of the Point View Drive exit off Highway 50 in Smith Flat.

Founded in 1924, Anderson’s originally became famous for their split pea soups and is what White describes as a full-service leisure dining facility with a large menu.

Developer Dennis Geiler of Geiler Construction said about 80 percent of the advance planning and permit work has been done.

2 New Rangers On Forest

The more or less permanent assignment of Ranger George B. Young to the headquarters of Eldorado National Forest is indicated by an announcement during the week that there will be two new rangers on duty with the forest staff this year.

Ranger Young has been in charge of Caldor district for several years and was detailed to special work at the forest headquarters during the season of 1942 and 1943 and will continue in this work.

He is being succeeded as a ranger in the Caldor district by Ranger George I. Ramstad, of the Angeles Forest.

A second ranger from Angeles Forest, Ranger Harry D. Grace, will be in charge of Lake Valley district on Eldorado Forest, succeeding Ranger Fred Meyer, who has resigned from the forest service to enter private industry.

St. Patrick’s Day Ball

Probably the largest crowd that has attended a St. Patrick’s Day Ball in recent years, in this city, assembled at Confidence Hall last Friday evening to participate in the pleasures of the ball given under the auspices of the ladies of the Catholic Church. Some idea of the number  that attended can be arrived at when it is known that over 300 people were fed during the evening.

The decorations in the hall were noticeable for their simplicity — the colors predominating being those of the far-famed Isle interwoven with those of our Nation.

The dancing commenced at 9 o’clock and as was to have been expected the floor was so crowded that dancing was anything but pleasant, but the crowd was a good natured one and enjoyed the situation to the utmost.
