Lights and thefts

In reference to your article dated Aug. 18, “Light leads to dispute,” Michael Powers states that there is no need for security lights in rural areas and is trying to get the Board of Supervisors to pass an ordinance against such lights.

Mr. Powers reported on Aug. 23 the theft of his mailbox and some mail in the Round Mountain area. As a resident of the Round Mountain area, I have experienced some theft and vandalism. I think this strengthens the need for rural security lights, rather than lessens it.
