Nearly all of California is fair and warm on Thursday School van pickup truck crash Bee Metro Staff A school van with nine Elk Grove youngsters collided with a pickup truck Thursday at an intersection

Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge’s 50th anniversary on Nov 12 — a day characterized by bumper-to-bumper traffic and $100000 worth of fireworks And what about the oft-bally-hooed but oftener-broke salute to the Golden Gate “that other bridge by the headlands?” Its 50th year anniversary budget trimmed from $22 million to a 10th that the Golden Gate’s celebration seems a bit inflated for a span 10 years younger than the Carquinez Such displays of wealth seem profligate by contrast to the Carquinez Bridge Anniversary Committee which hopes to raise some $40000 but spend only $30000 on ceremonies The excess will go toward a plaque and memorial to the bridge’s founders on the Crockett side of the bridge Commemorations will get under way Saturday at noon with such low- Innovative Sacramento

haven’t determined yet who’s at fault” However Chapman told a CHP officer shortly after the 12:45 pm crash that the school van which was traveling north on Elk Grove-Florin Road turned left in front him According to the county Department of Public Works the accident rate at that intersection has risen sharply in recent years Up until 1984 an average of six to eight collisions annually were reported there In 1985 there were 17 In 1986 there were 20 Accident statistics for the current year were not available In an interview last December a Department of Public Works official blamed the rise in accidents on an outdated traffic signal that doesn’t have a left-turn arrow budget activities as rock painting and poetry contests Music on tape will be provided by Huey Lewis and the News Journey and Starship Sunday at 8:30 am officials will lead a bridge walk “We don’t even like to think about that ‘younger bridge”’ said publicist Dan Doherty referring to the golden-arched span so dear to commuters between San Francisco and Marin County “We like to think of (the Carquinez Bridge) as the second greatest bridge in the world or the greatest secondary bridge on Earth” he added with a gleeful cackle The bridge got its start when grocers Aven J Hanford and Oscar M Klatt troubled by shipping delays to their Oakland markets first tried to solve their problems by organizing a ferry service linking Vallejo to Crockett and Oakland But growing business demands soon prompted them to erect the bridge They financed the effort by issuing a comparatively frugal $8 million worth of private bonds and then charging 60 cents a car and 10 cents a customer to cross the bridge Seven years later they sold the structure to the state of California sent his financial empire crashing back to earth said his daughter Linda “He would think of an idea and he’d go with it” said Linda Parisi During his years as a restaurateur Mr Parisi claimed to have introduced such ideas as open-pit fires live theater and telephone hookups between tables in his restaurants He claimed he was the first man to bring pizza to Sacramento He also added some Hollywood flair to his ventures In 1950 when he opened his first restaurant Parisi's Spaghetti House and the Gaslight Theater on Fulton Colleen M Wolter Family services will be held for Colleen Muldoon Wolter a retired draftsman with the California

Turner manager of the Glendale Federal Savings branch on the corner where Scheel sold his newspapers “He’d buy a new pair of pants and a shirt now and then But outside of that he was very thrifty” Nunes said it is conceivable that Scheel acquired the $67000 solely from his news business “If you sell papers for more than 20 years and live as frugally as he did it seems possible that he could have accumulated that over time” Scheel who always wore a brown shirt and brown pants at his newsstand will be buried in a blue suit after an open casket service at 10 am Saturday at NG Cuijis & Son Chapel of the Valley 1525 Alhambra Blvd Interment will be at Camellia Memorial Lawn Cemetery “He’s going to wear a good quality burial suit that goes for about $88 retail” said one of the directors at

the intended victims” I The judge also found that “Lt Kane coldly calculated that the risk of serious bodily harm or death to in-1 nocent citizens was an acceptable risk to gain an additional few years added to (Samuels’) potential sen-! tence” j Kane has since denied that he be- lieved the burglaries committed by j Samuels with Scherr’s assistance would take place “I would never have allowed! Scherr to go with Samuels if I be-! lieved the burglaries would occur” Kane testified at a recent hearing on ! a related matter But at an earlier proceeding Kane said “As far as I was concerned it ! was a 50-50 coin toss” j Long said in his June ruling that1 Kane’s assertions that he never be-! lieved the burglaries would occur was not credible “Ail of Lt Kane's actions were pre- mised on the assumption that (Samu-1 els) and Scherr were going to commit burglaries t “Lt Kane instructed Scherr to aid Samuels but not to enter any resi- j dence He issued operation orders directing marked vehicles not to en-! ter the surveillance area and that no patrol car was to be dispatched to! the area before clearance by Kane’s operation Indeed the Aug 18 opera- tion order expressly stated his belief that (Samuels) would commit bur-j glary” Long wrote j As a result of the police’s Scherr-! Samuels operation two homes in the South Land Park area were broken' into the night of Aug 19 1985 one of them twice I "Thus not only did Scherr a gov-‘ ernment agent suggest and aid the commission of burglaries against innocent citizens but Lt Kane consciously and deliberately risked the lives of innocent citizens without their knowledge or consent" Long wrote ' Samuels' release does not end the controversy surrounding the matter Scherr has brought an action in Sacramento Municipal Court challenging the district attorney’s right to prosecute him on drug charges Arguments are scheduled this morning before Judge Fred K Morrison ‘ Special train from SF may go to Garlic Festival McClatchy News Service GILROY — The “Garlic Express" powered by a locomotive called Gilroy may head south from San Francisco July 25 with a full load of Garlic Festival-bound travelers Representatives of state and county officials met Thursday with Garlic Festival organizers and local officials to map a plan that could send as many as 1000 passengers aboard a state-operated Caltrain for a! round-trip excursion to the 1987 Gar-! lie Festival The proposal is the work of Sen!
