Moraga Police reporting trivializes serious crimes

Dear Editor,
It would be appreciated if you stopped including attempts at humor in publishing Moraga police reports. Such reporting trivializes and demeans police activities that often involve serious crimes and/or dangerous situations. One option you have is to report Moraga police activities as you do those of Orinda and Lafayette. Attempts at humor were dropped for these two communities some time ago.

Kudos to firefighters

Dear Editor,
Because of the recent Campolindo fire my wife and I were evacuated from our home. The fire started on a ridge above Campolindo High. Our neighbors, the Jacobsen's, called 911 to report the fire. Within minutes we had one fire truck followed by more trucks and two helicopters. The firefighters were professional, organized and courteous to all of us. As part of their work they had to cut down part of our fence. The following day, Moraga-Orinda Fire Chief, Stephen Healy showed up at our front door to explain how to fill out claim for fence repair. We filled out the form and next day had a check. I want to go on record to thank all of the firefighters and Chief Healy. What a great place to live!
