Those old people u were talking about were Bernard and Joyce Berry and at least they were out there working. Caraway use to hire someone with a smaller moyer that didn't throw grass so bad. Leo Stallings always done a good job.As for the holes we have been filling our familys in ourselves. I want to thank Bernard and Jouce for all they do. Love you to.

St Francis in Clay county holds a picnic every year to raise money...and solicits what they can pay from those who have folks there...For their "Gravel Hill Cemetery. Idea?? Don't know: all situations are different.

why do we need the mayor or city to set these dates. It's our family's out there. Why not set a date like the last saturday of every month or etc... just example and just meet and do it...

I believe that caraway hires the clean up and I believe they are in charge. They sell all the burial plots, and they care for cementary. Last yearf my cousin said cleanup is saturday at caraway. That was on a friday, I live 4 hrs away and need a little longer to plan. I am not 21 anymore!!!

yes last year our cemetary looked awful. our good mayor berry riley decided to let the city boys mow it. gary jeffers didn't care he mowed some down to the dirt.everybody complained. they get new mowers about every year because they don't take care of them you should see how they use them 5 year olds would know better. you can even find our good mayor just riding up & down the highway on it, guess it saves him from having to put gas in his truck. as far as city councel members go they are a bunch of yes sir men does just exactly what the mayor says, come on people lets vote them all out lets vote for change the same way thier doing to people thier sending to washington, lets get people in there that has the balls to do whats right for caraway, vote them out. thank you

things are looking a lot better at the cemetary this year the city hired donna & her husband to care for it they do a wonderful job. i even see them weed eating around the headstones out there thats something we never had happen before. when flowers blow off the graves instead of mowing over them & scatering them all over the place, they pick them up. they even burn the trash pile over there. i am proud of them & i hope we can keep them for many more years. thank you guys for caring & a good job well done.

yep we need a new goverment, but whom we have intown running for office we had better stay with what we have, or there'll be no town left. Barry Riley has done a good job, building our accounts back up and so, look at the water company with the back hole, do they use the back hole for personnel use or allow others to, hear Terry say we need another one, its not that old, as for the mayor out mowing my hat off to you for out working in the city trying to make it look better instead of out there bitching your working, what other mayor even done that,--------, still thinking,-------, well i don't remember, and as for his running mate he'll do what he can from his couch like he did as cheif of, what was he again

as for bernard & joyce berry, lets get real they don't do much in caraway. go out to the cemetary on clean up day & you'll find them sitting on top of the headstones out there yes they are always out there but they don't do anything i know this to be a fact because i'm always there & have never seen ither one lifting a finger all they do is run thier mouths & try to make people who don't know think they really do something for caraway.

Bernard Berry is probably the most kindess and helpful person in town, yes he is out there, even with his disabbilty hes there, if you need something or help on something hes there to help in what matters or count, anybody who picks on him or his spouce needs to be asking for forgivness on this Sunday for they no not what they have just said or done to such wonderful people, Caraway is blessed to have them. Bernard i know your laughing at their post but we are with you, you are a inspiration to us all hope i can match you when i'm your age and etc.

NO one should say anything about Bernard Berry "not doing anything". He does ALOT for our city. I don't know what this city would do without him. He does so much for our 4th of July celebration. AND Mayor Barry Riley has also done alot for our city while he has been in office. He works hard for us. We need to hope he gets re-elected, if he don't our city wont have anything. Jerry wont leave his house long enough to get anything done, unless its getting one of the Emerys out of trouble!

I don't know who you are since you didn't use your name. I don't think that you know me either. I may not always make the right or popular decisions but they are MY decisions. I've never been anyone's "yes sir man". This is an election year and I encourage you to run for the city council. Maybe you have some ideas that will improve the city. If so then I wish you nothing but good luck. Also if there is something that I have done that you are not pleased with I'll be glad to sit and talk with you. I live at 529 East State or you can find me at the Riverside bus shop any time during the week. Thanks.

I am not blaming anyone but someone who is in charge needs to go look at the cemetery now. The city did a better job of mowing than it is now.

I think if yall dont like the way they r mowing go do it yourself. They r out there in 100 degree weather and u expect them to get everything just perfect. Go back and make sure there aint any grass on the monuments. Ha. I think all these people around caraway need to learn to respect others and if ur gona say something at least put your name....I know how hard my aunt works out there. She makes herself sick trying to mow in the heat and no one can appritiate it. So i got one thing to tell u DO IT YOURSELF!!!!!!

I'm not writing this to start any trouble. I have a child buried out there. And that is a big task out there. There is alot of weed eating, etc. to do out there. It should pay way more than it does to up keep that place. But I will say this what happen to the good old days when we all pitch in and help out. Why do we have to pay anyone. I think anyone with loved ones out there, are to bring a mower out. and lets get busy. Set a day every month and get it done. Like the last Saturday of every month for example. If we all pitch in with 6 or 7 mowers and weed eaters once a month or even twice a month it wouldn't take us very long at all. Just a ideal. It's kinda like the Mayor of a city. Theirs alot of people and you can't please them all.
