Well done

Like Susan Barbee wrote in a recent edition of The Gazette, my wife and I recently made cemetery visits, and like Ms. Barbee we were somewhat dismayed by what we saw. We visited the Colfax Cemetery and were surprised at the dried up grass (I did see the article that said the sprinkler system is being repaired). What was exposed was the green and blooming morning glory in the dry grass. Fortunately, there was none growing on my father’s grave. He would have been greatly offended. While the grass is dry, I hope the caretakers will apply some herbicide.

We also visited the Onecho Cemetery. It is beautifully kept. They also have an up-to-date website that shows the names of every person in the cemetery and when they were buried. Well done!

Frank Watson, in your article, "Socialism is a One-Way Trip to Disaster" (Aug. 1, 2019), you discuss the supposed evils of socialism. How ironic, that you, as a retired Air Force colonel, are the beneficiary of the most socialistic American institution, the United States military. For decades, your housing, food, salary, medical care and now, your retirement, were provided by the U.S. government and paid for by the American taxpayer.
