Letters to the Editor - 7/17/14 edition

July 15, 2014 

Dear Editor,

During the late morning hours of July 8, I fell down an embankment when the bank gave way across from the old Snowline. I fell 50 feet, and was able to grab a Juniper bush to prevent myself from falling onto Highway 41.

I had no choice but to yell for help. The driver of a white Bronco with the American flag painted on it heard my cries for help, pulled over, and stopped a CHP officer, who called the fire department to pull me back up the hill.

When I tell everyone my story, they say they recognize the description of the vehicle, but no one knows the driver's name. That driver of the Bronco basically saved my life that day. I don't know who that man was, but sure wish I could thank him personally.
