The Placerville City Council has hired Robert Semple, an assistant city manager of Coalinga, as its new city administrator, with a base salary of $43,800 annually.
Semple starts his new job April 4 and succeeds Lee Yarborough, who retired late last year. Mike Foster, city engineer and public works director, is currently serving as acting city manager …
Semple, who is married and has four children, earned his bachelor of arts degree in journalism/advertising from California State University, Fresno, according to a press release from City Hall. Last year he received his master of public administration degree from the University of San Francisco.

Marshall, the discoverer of gold, has been appropriately remembered by the ladies of the California Outdoor Art League, who made a pilgrimage to Marshall Square, San Francisco, Saturday to plant seeds of the eschscholtzia. The seeds of the State’s flower, the golden poppy, were placed around the palms of the square, and it is to be hoped that they will blossom into a golden memory.
