City chief named

By TIM WILLIS

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.

He was honorably discharged from the U.S. Marines in 1969, the release reported.

Immunization Clinic Nears

The regular biennial immunization clinic conducted under the auspices of the county health officer will open in the county March 16, and will continue daily in its opening phase through March 19th.

This according to Mrs. Helen Byrnes, county school nurse, who said the clinic will be conducted at a number of school centers of the county and that a schedule will be announced during the coming week …

Mrs. Byrnes said the clinic will offer immunization to all children up to nine years of age against diphtheria, whooping-cough and tetanus, given in three inoculations one month apart.

There will be a charge of twenty-five cents for each inoculations, but no child will be denied the treatment if parents are unable to pay …

Children are being requested to take consent slips home with them, present them to their parents and, when signed, return them to their school.

 

Casaba Capers Are Ghosts’ Promise 

The famous Iowa Colored Ghosts basketball team will invade El Dorado County Monday night, March 15, for an exhibition game at the high school against an all-star team, picked from the county basketball league.

With a record of 93 consecutive victories and no defeats, the Colored Ghosts are to basketball what they are to softball, with half of the lineup able to hold a basketball in one hand with the palm down.

“Suitcase” Sullinger stands six feet seven inches and Pete Hood the “little fellow” of the outfit, standing only five feet and eleven inches …

According to Oscar Ayers, of the Twenty-Thirty Club, the Ghosts could, if they wanted to, pile up a commanding lead and run away with the game, but that is not their style; they play along at a close score, and usually count on that last-minute show of perfection which in 93 games they have played has always put them on top at the final whistle.

Marshall Honored

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.

The extension of the railroad through the city to Upper Placerville is progressing rapidly. The greatest feat of engineering has been to avoid a rear end collision with the town — the most unsightly structures of which are right along the south bank of Hangtown Creek. Unless remodeled or removed they will be continual warnings to visiting strangers to turn eyes and nose the other way. A nuisance the railroad could not condemn and cannot abate, is now up to the city and property owners.
