AH HA! you say. Fewer than 100 of you correctly identified last week’s offering. As one of our regular readers, Bob Zoellin, observed in his correct answer, “Sometimes we forget to look up. Anyone that doesn’t step out from under the awnings would truly miss some of the best details of Odd Fellows Building.” Grass Valley’s IOOF, that is. Today, we depart slightly from our usual fare and present a 41-year old picture (January 1965), of a 75-pound The Union news carrier, on the steps of the paper’s old 151 Mill St. office, with his 100-pounds of papers! The bag contains copies of The Union’s weighty centennial edition. Now, the question is who is this little guy – now all grown up and a prominent Grass Valley figure? I talked with him at the naming ceremony of the Royce Branch of the Grass Valley Public Library and mentioned that I had found the photo and would like to run it in TIMELINES. He smiled and said, “Why not?” OK, who’s the little boy? E-mail: bobwyckoff@infostations.com or PO Box 216, Nevada City CA 95959. All will be answered and we certainly thank you all.
