Gossip, Rumors, & Lies Many, many years ago, on July 1st, Ronald Gene King was born. In those “olden days�, TVs were still in the experimental stage, and home entertainment was provided by an AM radio. Cars had manual transmissions, and air conditioning was provided by windows. Gas stations had people to pump your gas, air your tires, and wash your windshield, all for less than 25 cents per gallon.

progressed, he managed department stores, and became a sales executive with a citrus products company. (and no, he did not run an orange juice stand in Reseda, regardless of what Bill tries to tell you.) It was during this time in Reseda that he got the nickname of “Juice” King. In the summer of 1976, Bill convinced Ron that they should go into business together, running a paint store. It seems that one slick paint peddler had mentioned to Bill that a wonderful store was for sale in Santa Cruz. Anyway, Ron and Bill met in Santa Cruz, looked at the store, and after a few drinks at the upscale Club Zayante, made the deal. They took over the store on December 10, 1976. Ron was immediately made the “Paint Mixer”. He thought that meant he would tint paint, but Bill said “NO, you mix the paint with a 3/8” drill and mixer”. Ron and Bill worked 7 days a week, but Ron still had time to have another daughter and a son. That son is Tom, manager of the Soquel store. Ron may now be found at the Scotts Valley store, fishing off Santa Cruz, or golfing somewhere in Northern California or Nevada. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RON!
