SOUTH LIMESTONE — For the second time in less than 10 days, vandals have struck Hatchett Cemetery in the rural Beulah Land community in southern Limestone County.

The cemetery, which is surrounded by cornfields on a remote portion of Bridgeforth Road, was vandalized either Nov. 8 or Nov. 9 as many of the approximately 200 grave markers were toppled over, cracked or split into smaller slabs.
