Man upset drivers using historic local cemetery as shortcut

Athens Mayor Dan Williams is looking into a proposal that would require the installation of poles and chains around a city cemetery to halt cars and trucks from coming through the cemetery while enroute to a local ballfield.

David Malone complained to the Athens City Council Monday night that some people are using the Thatch-Mann Cemetery on the city’s west side to get to a local ball park.

“They are driving across a portion of the cemetery and that is not good,” said Malone. “We sure would like to see this practice stopped. It should not be happening.”

Councilmen agreed and instructed the mayor to look into a proposal to eliminate the practice. The mayor said he would check it out and report back to the council soon.
