Disappointing behavior

We learned from a Caltrans worker on the two Trinidad bridge underpasses that thieves continue to take whatever gear and supplies they can lay their hands on at both sites.

Citizen alert: If you see something, report it to Trinidad Police at (707) 677-0133 or speak to Officer Pam Wilcox, the new County Sheriff’s deputy in Trinidad at 463 Trinity Street.
