Appointment of A. L. Escobar to fill the vacancy on the Manteca Grammar School Board was announced Friday by John R. Williams, county superintendent of schools. There had been a vacancy on the board since the election in June when Dr. L. L. Henry was elected over E. G. Fairbank, incumbent, by a write-in vote. The local dentist declined to accept the office, inasmuch as the campaign in his behalf was without his knowledge or consent.

Property owners and householders no doubt will be glad to know that two extra men will be on duty next Tuesday night to guard against depredations of a serious nature on Hallowe’en night. Chief of Police Tom Brockman with his regular force and his two extra men will patrol the streets.

The 15 percent prime lending rate has had some effects on the number of Mantecans wanting loans--but not much, local bankers say. Several of the nation’s larger banks raised their prime lending rates last week from 14.5 to 15 percent, another record. Glenn Holsonbake, a loan officer at Bank of America, said he has “been as busy as ever” with consumer loans for home improvements, new cars and mobile homes.

Four days after a 7.1 earthquake rattled Northern California, three building inspectors from the city of Manteca visited Gilroy to assist the community with building inspections. Public Works Director Michael Brinton said the experience taught local inspectors not only about the devastation in Gilroy but about what could happen in Manteca if an earthquake of that magnitude ever hit in this area. The inspectors’ assistance was requested by the city of Gilroy.

Buyers of homes yet to be built in Manteca have helped the City Council resolve a dilemma plaguing it since 1995 on how to fund the first phase of a skate park.
