Letters to the editor for February 8, 2012

Academic Decathlon

To the Editor:
    On Saturday (Feb. 4) I had the pleasure of observing the Calaveras and Tuolumne county High School Academic Decathlon at Bret Harte High School.
    Sixty young people from the two counties participated in an all day competition of their skill in writing, speaking, literature, math, science, and economics. There is no question that these students represent some of the best of what education and academic excellence is all about. My compliments to you, your parents, and all the teachers and volunteers who helped to prepare you for the competition. It was an honor to be part of your day.

Burglary victims are thankful

To the Editor:
    Dear Angels Camp Police Chief Todd Fordahl:
    We had the unpleasant experience of being one of the homes burglarized in the early morning hours of February 4. I cannot describe how frightening it is to awaken with someone in your bedroom shining a small flashlight. We would like to commend Detective David Scarborough for his immediate response to our home and for the thoroughness in which he checked our house and yard.
    We would further like to commend him and the Angels Camp Police Department for how quickly they solved the crime and returned our property. While we had become negligent in locking our doors that is no longer the case. Thank you.
        Susan and Kelly Sheehan

Saving red and yellow-legged frogs

To the Editor:
    Quick Ma grab the posts.
    It’s time to get the fence posts in place.
    The California Fish and Game might make it illegal to define our property again. Now that Calaveras County property owners have saved the red-legged frog from being disturbed or going hungry and they will survive, they have found two more frogs, the southern mountain yellow-legged and the Sierra Nevada mountain yellow-legged frog hoppers shall be saved. Tra-La!!
    Now remember all the problems folks around Valley Springs had proving that the red-legged critter wasn’t a resident on or nearby your homestead’s property lines. Ouch! Well I guess we saved the red jumper. Now we’re out to salvage, what’s left, of the yellow ones.
