HOGANSVitA_.E ttOME NEWS - THURSDAY, OCT. 3, 2002 PA(,: 5-A Who's Keeping Up Our Cemetery? DEAR EDITOR: What is going on with the upkeep of our cemetery in Hogansville? From the main road everything looks fine, but if you drive to the back it's yew noticeable that there is a lot of neglect on trimming around the headstones and a fire ant problem. tOO. There are fire ant mounds on and around a lot of the headstones and plots, and grass growing over two feet high around some of the headstones. My father was put to rest in February of this year and till this day, Resp nothing has been done to trim grass around his plot. I've had to do it myself three times this year. Does my tax money run out before the caretakers reach the back of the cemetery, or what? I have not seen neglect like this in other cemeteries; why Hogansville's? I'm not the only one that has seen this problem. One person cannot keep a cemetery of this size up to its fullest.
