Looking back: Pension fund decreased
October 25, 2009
75 years ago – From the Friday, Oct. 26, 1934, edition of The Steamboat Pilot:
Several inquiries have been received at the county court regarding the 50 percent payment of the old age pension last month. Judge J.M. Childress said only sufficient money to pay half the allotment was available in the fund.
It is probable that there will not be more than a 50 percent allotment for the next payment.
Two cars collide near Dream Island Camp
Cars driven by Walter Utzinger, of Craig, and Leonard Fleming, of Snake River, collided on the highway west of Steamboat Springs on Sunday morning when they met opposite Dream Island Camp in front of the Ralph Denney home. Utzinger’s 1934 Chevrolet sedan turned several times 135 feet from the point of collision and lodged in the swamp.
Fleming’s car turned over once. The cars were damaged.
There were seven persons in the crash, but none of them was injured beyond bruises and scratches.
