Weavers battle Preston Cemetery vegetation

Jim and Verla Weaver visited the Preston Cemetery on Sunday, October 2, welcomed by a rather overwhelming overgrowth of vegetation.  They cut down 40 or 50 finger sized saplings, a couple of two-inch pines, and many weeds.

"There were many thistles, some poison ivy, and many other weeds," Jim said.

"In general the site looks very good. It was a good time to visit as the fall colors were beautiful and the temp was good for working.

As we were approached the cemetery, perhaps as close as 100 yard from the cemetery, we surprised a mountain lion in the the road. He quickly turned about face and bounded into the woods."

Verla snapped this photo shortly after they arrived at the cemetery.
