Well, those punks are at it again. After the incident in Clyde, Ohio we get a copycat crime in Toledo's Calvary Cemetery. But after reading about it on ABC13's website, who in their ignorance, quoted a neighborhood man that stated he walks his dog in the cemetery on a regular basis, I was astonished. Don't they know that dogs are prohibited in cemeteries (also playing golf)?

Dogs are not prohibited in all cemeteries.
why would dogs be prohibited from cemeteries? and what incident in Clyde are you referring to Flinty?
I don't have a link upso, sorry, but at McPherson -- I think -- Cemetery in Clyde, off Route 20, two or three punks did one hell of a smash-em-up job on something like 200 gravestones. Here's the kicker: They kept coming back and did their damage over three different nights. One of the punks turned himself in, so the police know who did it.
I keep meaning to ask my mom if that's the cemetery my great-grandmother's buried in. It's been 20 years, so I forget, but I do know she's buried in Clyde.
If you care to search the Blade's archives, I know they ran a story a few days ago about the Clyde incident.
I wonder if any of those idiots that vandalize graveyards are sitting home alone at night and hear a noise and wonder if it's a ghost from a grave they vandalized.
Poetic justice I hope.
Vandalizing someones final resting place is pretty low.
Don't people have anything better to do??? I have quite a few family members buried there. Most of stones that are in the ground so I doubt they were damaged.
Hopefully, there is a special hell that awaits these people.
Jmleong, Regarding the final resting place of your great-grandmother, you can't assume that she is buried in Mcpherson because, according to www.findagrave.com, there are ten other cemeteries in Clyde, namely:
Avery (formerly Wickwire)
Maybe you mom knows which is the right one. Good luck!
Yeah, I know, that's why I keep meaning to ask. My mom will definitely know, though. She's the family genealogy expert and she'd no sooner forget a recent ancestor's grave site than she'd forget my name!
(... Hold on ... I'm e-mailing her right now ... DONE. And I shall have my answer tomorrow.)
(BTW, my great-grandmother is indeed buried in McPherson but her headstone was not disturbed.)
