Water rights application draws protest

A group of Lotus-area residents are protesting an application to the state Division of Water Rights seeking permission to tap and transport water from a natural spring in the area near Lotus and Springvale roads to a Sacramento-area bottling plant.

The application to draw 4,320 gallons per day was filed by Donald G. Felton and Julie F. Felton of Encino in September 1988, according to an official notice of application from the Division of Water Rights. The spring is located on the Felton’s property approximately five miles southwest of Coloma.

The notice is spurring considerable concern about the future of a marshland area nearby, according to Miklos Udvardy who owns 85 acres off Lotus Road. Udvardy discussed the issue with the Mountain Democrat recently. In addition to running 13 head of Black Angus cattle on his property, Udvardy, a professor of Biological Sciences at California State University, Sacramento, also brings students up to the area to study environmental concerns.

Udvardy said that he thinks it is inappropriate that an application has been field to truck water out of what is generally a dry area of the county. He and his neighbors were alerted about the water rights application by Mark Hamlin and his wife Gayle Erby-Hamlin who also are residents of the area, Udvardy said.

First steps have been made in a two way transaction in which A. H. “Sandy” Murray contemplates selling his stationery store on Main Street to Edward F. Durbin of Whittier and buying the El Dorado Distributing Company from Greg Yeager.

Murray said yesterday that the negotiations still are not completed. His present plans call for turning the stationary business to Durbin about June 20th.

He has been operating the store since 1934 when he purchased it from the late Joseph Scherrer.

Reunited Forever

The window of that genial old pioneer in this city and county, Frederick Seig, has followed her husband to the shadow of Druid dolman and cromlech. At the age of 91 years she died at Crocker Old Ladies Home in San Francisco Wednesday, May 11th, having been and invalid and blind for several years. She and her husband were natives of Germany and pioneers of this city and county. They built and owned for many years, the property now known as the Yosemite Hotel. They were among the best and most characteristic examples from the Fatherland on this coast.

Thence he brought the charter of his Order, under which he organized Grove No.1 of this city.  It was the acorn from which has sprung the mystic oak of Druidism that now overshadows the State. And now honored by the brotherhood he organized, sheltered by the grove he planted, the good old Druid is to share his cromlech with the gentle frau who has come to rejoin him forever.
