To the Editor:
Beautiful autumn. The only problem is the people who visit a certain house on Middle Camp Road. They come up about five times a year.
They come up from San Jose and bring their young teens and their BB and pellet guns. They shoot up the blue jays and other small critters. I found eight shot-dead blue jays they hid in a 6 inch blue plastic pipe.
I phoned the Sheriff’s Office and was told “It’s my word against theirs.”
I see them shooting in every direction and have no respect for our neighborhood. When they come up and decide they want to clear out their property, they blow all of their leaves to a neighbor’s property and over the fence to the judges property behind them.
