The State

December 18, 1985

Placer County ski instructor Gary Talanov, weary of instant celebrity status, was allowed to drop divorce proceedings against his Russian wife, who cannot get out of the Soviet Union. Superior Court Judge James Garbolino in Auburn, after granting the request, took action that assures continuation of efforts to allow the wife, Elena Kaplan, to immigrate to the United States. The judge reaffirmed his order that Talanov, 31, must sign documents requesting Soviet permission for Kaplan to attend court hearings here regarding a legal separation. Kaplan, 27, filed for separation to slow proceedings toward a divorce, which she feared would endanger her life.
