Cecine Bunn Stadden Passed Away At 92

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/22/2017 12:18 PM
San Andreas, CA...Cecine Bunn Stadden passed away at her daughter’s home in Calaveras county among family on March 16th, 2017. She was 92 years old. Cecine was born Cecine Elizabeth Cole in Springfield, Illinois. In her younger years, she hunted with her brothers, drove an ambulance, attended art school in Colorado. She loved new projects such as learning computers or repairing radios. Sometimes these objects broke after her involvement, but that never stopped her. Cecine was a lifelong artist, specializing in watercolors. In addition, she enjoyed sculpture, China painting, cartooning, pen and ink drawing, and colored pencil botanical illustration. She liked taking road trips, was an avid reader, and a big fan of computer Mahjong. Cecine had a whimsical - and on occasion, tactless - sense of humor. Her long life was attributed to good quality scotch, salmon, lots of candy and raw cashews.

The First Shall Be Last & The Last Shall Be First For Some At Tomorrow's Swine Auction

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/20/2017 12:07 PM
Angels Camp, CA...Due to an inadvertent error with the clippers some hair on a group of swine that were judged at this year's fair was just a little bit too short for regulations. The animals were allowed to compete and some did very well and in normal years would have earned coveted spots at the beginning of the auction that usually brings the highest prices per pound. Because of the hair error they were moved to the end of the auction. So hopefully some of the buyers will realize that some of the highest quality animals this year will be later in the groupings. Below is a letter we received from a parent that has additional details on "Hairgate" this year..
