Bernie Vigil

Bernie Vigil was fed up. The Lodi resident and former corrections officer was tired of getting obscene gestures from trespassers and vagrants as they relieved themselves near his property.

Sickened by the littering, drug use and unsanitary conditions in the private wetlands near the Mokelumne River and Highway 99 where he's lived for more than 20 years, the Vietnam veteran decided to find a solution. A month ago, Vigil purchased the 11 acres of private wetlands from the development company that built his subdivision. Then he gathered his neighbors to evict the transients.
