TV ad prompts memories

From my Springville home I was half-way watching and listening to television when I thought I heard a familiar voice that was promoting something from CalTrans. I did a double-take when I saw the spokesperson was Gloria Beverage. Wow! I know her, I proclaimed, although there was no one around to hear me. So many memories of my days of working with or should I say for, Gloria Beverage at the Auburn Journal. I learned so much from her from filing important stories, to weddings using peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in the ceremony. It was also the days of Helen Bale and Tom Homer, now gone but certainly not forgotten. I have traveled many roads since leaving the Auburn area, but, my heart will always hold a piece of Placer County and the great people I met and worked with while there, especially Gloria Beverage.
