Should the Arroyo Grande Cemetery start watering its grass again?

Yes. It looks ugly and that's disrespectful to the families who come there to mourn.
They should water it a little more, but stay mindful of the state's drought.
No they need to find an alternative like dryscaping.
Leave it as is. Saving water is more important than aesthetics.

Thank you for raising awareness

1LT, Armor (OE2) retired, CA ANG

By Dan Bronson

While I am not disabled, I served 30 years in the California National Guard and the Navy and Army Reserves. I spent several training periods at Camp SLO—especially my California Military Academy field exercises (OCS) and graduated OCS there in 1985.
Many military retirees and those with military related disabilities are living on low and very low incomes. The importance to them to have access to inexpensive housing may make the difference for some between becoming homeless or not.
I could end up in this kind of situation myself someday.
Your article (“Park it elsewhere,” April 25) and the public awareness that comes from it could be the difference in the lives of many. Thank you.
