Editor's note: Each Monday, The Herald-Mail will highlight an infrastructure issue or other problem, and will try to find out what is being done to fix or improve the situation.
We will not tackle situations involving neighborhood or domestic disputes or consumer problems.
The problem: A centuries-old family cemetery near Old Forge Elementary School is overgrown with weeds and brush, and many of its headstones are overturned. Nearby resident Aldine N. Moser Jr. wrote in about the cemetery's condition, noting that it borders school grounds, where children play and many events are held.
"It really needs cleanup and possible continual 'volunteer maintenance,'" Moser wrote. "This could be a community service cleanup for high school students to meet their volunteer/community service hours to graduate."
Who could fix it: The cemetery is private and has been cared for over the years by descendants of the Bachtell family members buried there.
