The last time I went through that neighborhood, he properties next to that graveyard were the among the slummiest in Socorro. I'm willing to guess that they want to get offered the deal of "... compensating the property owner by offering them another parcel that would meet their needs." Anything else in town would be better than what they have now.

Grave robbing in Socorro? Why doesn't that surprise me?

BTW, it's nice to know Charles Mandeville is still working on keeping the "weeds" cleared out of the cemetery.

What I am curious about is why is it taking so long for anything to be done about this? How many MORE years will it take? You'd think that bulldozing graves, which is a felony, and paving over them would be a priority for state and local officials to correct. But we will ALL probably be in a graveyard before anything is done about it. Let's all make sure to arrange that we are buried FAR away from Socorro - so we don't end up with OUR bones scattered all over the countryside as well.

Well,_I_ want to be cremated and my ashes scattered. But I can think of far better and more pleasant places in NM than Socorro for that ...
