We experienced a seemingly relatively minor case of vandalism on our ranch last week. While the actual dollar value of the damage was small, the potential inconvenience was great and the damage to our sense of trust of the public who comes through our ranch was HUGE. It may have seemed funny to the perpetrators (especially if alcohol was involved...) but the underlying societal damage is not. It is a great sadness to note that civility and responsibility seem to getting rarer and rarer.
The one silver lining was the quick response of the Sheriff’s Office. Deputy Fisher was courteous, observant and helpful and I would like to thank him publicly.
