Chain Fencing Stolen From Historic Franklin Cemetery [NH]
Topix ^ | July 12, 2008 | unknown

Hundreds of feet of chain fencing have been stolen from a historic cemetery in Franklin, police said.


TOPICS: Business/Economy; Humor; Outdoors; Society
KEYWORDS:
Since we can't post AP articles, check out this link for details.

I thought we've driven past this cemetery many times, but I don't remember/recall the chain fence, so I google-imaged the Frankin Cemetery in hopes of seeing some pix to jog my memory.

Instead I found the most humorous link with these rotating images selling "very serene resting places" in the Franklin cemetery. I gotta meet the superintendent .... what a wonderful sense of humor he must have!

I never did find the photos I wanted ... but thought I'd share the chuckle. ;)

Could be the fencing was stolen to send to our southern US border to build the fence that the gummit won’t build.

Check the nearest recycling center. Out here in CA, if you leave your car at the curb too long, they'll take the catalytic convertor off and turn it in for cash at the local recycling center. Nothing is sacred anymore...

I do like the little signs - they are very cute.

Here in Alabama they steal air conditioning units to recycle the copper. Home units and even big commercial units. It’s crazy.

Check the local prison.

Maybe a chain gang took it.

The world is insane ... even reaching tiny villages like Frankin. Now who was it who said the economy is great?

PS ... I found an article with the type of fence I imagined was stolen.

Having lived in Franklin, NH one has to realize that the chain is probably the only thing worth stealing. Franklin is the dumping grounds for released jail patrons from Manchester and Concord.

Someone took the copper piping and pop off valves from 9 water heaters at the apartment complex I manage.

It is beyond rediculus. People will work harder to steal and make less for their effort than they would with a job.

That’s why most people only drive through the town. ;)

... and maybe to see the “Upside Down Covered Bridge”

My observation is that historic cemetaries tend to be in blighted areas.
