Winters District Likes Packard; Some of the Proud Owners
When Hiatt & Miller, local Packard dealers, made second place in the sale of Packard cars last year, much of their success was due to the Winters district. This prosperous center boosts a number of Packards, eight of which are pictured below, lined up in front of the Bank of Winters. The eight listed below were sold through the efforts of L.C. Bennett, sales manager for the local firm, during the past few months, who is pictured at the left. Others in the picture are Miss Faye Smith, Walter Young, E.E. Baker, W.S. Baker, J.R. Griffin, W.I. Baker, Raine Griffin, Charles E. Elliott and Roe E. Judy.

Facebook: Students Study History & Cursive Writing
Yolo County archives specialist, Heather Lanctot, recently visited Cesar Chavez Elementary School in Davis. She taught the students about the important of local archives and government, including a lesson on how to transcribe Board of Supervisors meeting notes from the 1850s. The students worked hard at reading "very old" cursive writing and learned interesting facts about our county.
