As husband and wife Bernie and Julie Vigil toured their property near Highway 99 and the Mokelumne River on Wednesday, the two scooped up trash while envisioning the land's potential.

"This could be a great place for a wedding and reception once we clean it up," Bernie Vigil said as Julie Vigil poured out stale beer from a can and placed it in a discarded ice bag.

    Linda Evans stated...We've had some transients try to come back in recent weeks," Bernie Vigil said. "I remind them it's private property, and when they don't comply, I cut up their tent."

    I agree with Linda, Mr Vigil should not react so authoritarian and damage the tents. Instead, what would be more appropriate is to carefully pack the tents for the squatters. Then gently place the tents in his truck and offer a ride to the squatters. Drop by Linda Even's home and establish a tent city in her yard and have Linda have legal responsibility for any damage caused by the squatters. I'm sure Linda would think it fair to put her money where her mouth is by having these tents on her property.

    I think it's spoken like someone who's tired of people squatting on HIS PROPERTY.
