Fugitive’s home burglarized

COOL — While homicide suspect Jesse James Felcman was hiding out in San Jose last weekend, a Cool resident allegedly burglarized his mobile home on Indian Rock Road.

Felcman’s neighbors called sheriff’s officers about 6 p.m. Sunday after they reportedly saw someone walking around inside Felcman’s mobile home with a flashlight. The neighbors watched as a pickup truck drove away from the mobile home and stopped at a nearby house on White Horse Road belonging to 37-year-old David Louise Nuse.

An officer arrived, drove to Nuse’s home and questioned him about the incident. Nuse told the officer he heard a cow lowing and decided to check on the animal’s welfare …

The officer then asked Nuse if he had taken any property from the area. Nuse reportedly said he saw a camera, camera lenses and a pair of binoculars lying on the road leading to the mobile home …

The officer reportedly noticed that the camera equipment and binoculars were dry and clean and wondered why this was so when the road to Felcman’s home was wet and muddy …

Amending the Game Laws

One of the most important matters to come up before the Legislature will be the proposed amendments to the game laws. At the recent Fish and Game Convention held at Monterey, a bill to divide the State into game districts pursuant to the Constitutional Amendment adopted at the November election, was drawn up, and it is understood Senator Tyrrell of Nevada will have charge of it.

Under the bill, the State is divided into three game districts, the first comprising the counties of El Dorado, Placer, Nevada, Sierra, Plumas, Lassen, Modoc and Siskiyou.

In this district the present open season would be changed to read: deer, September 1 to November 1; doves, June 15 to February 15; grouse, sage hens and mountain quail, August 15 to November 15.
