Pacileo stars on local TV

“10-8,” Placerville Police Department’s crime prevention TV series, will air again on Cable Channel 5 at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 26.

Police Chief Bob Harmon announced that the guest for that program will be El Dorado County Sheriff Richard Pacileo. The first half of the program will be devoted to a discussion of vehicle theft on a local and statewide level.

Harmon said, “Public reaction to ’10-8′ has been very positive and we see the program as another step in our effort to build closer relationships and understanding between our officers and the public. Further, citizen awareness of the nature and extent of crime in our area is vital if we are to be successful in coping effectively with these problems.”

Sponsored by the Placerville Police Department and presented as a public service by Sequoyah Video and Cable Channel 5, “10-8″ is telecast live immediately preceding every third City Council meeting.

Lieut. Hansen Listed As Missing While Pilot Is Reported Killed

The circumstances concerning what happened to Lieutenant Clay Hansen, of Placerville, holder of the distinguished flying cross which he earned in outstanding air combat in the South Pacific, leave hope however slight, that he may yet be alive.

This is according to word received during the week from Mrs. Hansen’s mother, Mrs. Leonard Day, of Davis, with whom Mrs. Hansen and the lieutenant’s infant daughter, Mary Joyce, are making their home.

Mrs. Day reported that a recent visitor at her home was Mrs. Henry Chovanec, wife of the pilot of the plane in which Lieutenant Hansen had been operating regularly as a bombardier.

During her visit in Davis, Mrs. Chovanec received word from the flight commander that her husband, First Lieut. Henry Chovanec, had been killed.
