Letter to the editor
From Ellen Kendall
This morning I drove to Oddfellows Cemetery on University Drive here in Starkville. I have many family members and dear friends that are buried there. When I turned into the cemetery, I was shocked and deeply hurt to see five college students walking dogs there. The dogs were digging up some of the graves and relieving themselves on tombstones and graves. I stopped these students and asked why they were walking dogs in the cemetery and allowing them to desecrate graves of people who had family members that loved them and donâ€™t want their graves to be used as bathrooms for dogs. One boy replied, â€śThe landlord suggested we bring them here because there is no yard where we live.â€ť
Well, shame, shame, shame on whoever that landlord might be.
