Todd Blevins, Owosso – Former cemetery caretaker

Editor, The Independent:

Is anybody paying attention to Owosso Charter Township’s Oak Grove Cemetery these days? It doesn’t appear so. We visited family graves today and things are just not right.

There is no dirt on recent burials, one particular in Section Three. The leaves are not taken care of, again. The last two or three years they let leaves pile up around the headstones and along the fence and didn’t get them out until springtime.

When I did the cemetery I had to have that done by December, actually November so the leaf helpers could get paid in time for Christmas shopping. They have burned some in the ditch and in Section Three by the road they are dumping leaves in the woods.

The garbage cans are still left out. They put the garbage container/dumpster in the garage for the winter when I was there. There is no garbage pickup thru the winter.

Have Danny and the bobbleheads lost all interest in the cemetery? Apparently no one is micro-managing like Danny did when I was there.
