I’d like to know if Mr. Westmoreland is still a cheerleader of dis-interring the bodies of the unknown in Pine Island Cemetery, so the Mall can have a larger access for their delivery trucks. Mind you, by doing so, he’d be disrupting the family plots of several and pulling apart one’s mother/wife/grandmother from the rest of them. What an absolute shame!

This decision was all hinged on the bike-path would be relocated to the cemetery itself, which it now has. This was supposedly one of the cogs in the wheel. I’m hoping he’d bring us up to speed on this potentially devastating decision. Has this become hush-hush?
