Very interesting about the damage done at Vernon Grove Cemetery on Depot St. Milford, I would like to no why this story wasn't front page news when this idiot tractor trailer driver drove his rig into the cemetery and did about ten thousands dollars worth of damage to grave stones, tree limbs, broke water faucets along the way. Tore up grass and more grave stones along the way, but nothing said about the damage at this cemetery. Why are they keeping this a secret not telling the public this is front page news stuff. And me I'm just a little drop in the bucket.

Hi Mr. Nobody, I didn't realize it was that much in damage. I'll be happy to follow up on it.

Mr Nobody, don't think that way. Your not just a little drop in the bucket.
