Can someone soon tell us when the city is going to get out here and clean up the trees that have been cut down in Oakdale Cemetery? It’s very disturbing. It certainly doesn’t look good, and it’s not very heartwarming for families to come in here and see this kind of situation. It looks like the city could make an effort to get out here and get this cleaned up.


I really enjoy going to the farmers’ market on Saturdays on the waterfront to buy fresh produce and look at the crafts. But could people please leave their dogs at home or at least stay away from the food vendors with their dogs, like the 100-pound Labrador that was there the other day?
