Right thing to do

You are fortunate to have Bill Krompel as your county commissioner. He lives by objective, compassionate and meaningful expressions.

When recently approached for some help to clean up and put in shape a Carbon County cemetery (Meade-Peterson) that, due to its hemmed-in location, made it next to impossible for descendents to haul in dirt to fill holes and stabilize headstones, etc. Krompel and staff stepped up to the plate and said, "It's the right thing to do."

It was certainly a true display of common decency for dressing up a cemetery and carrying on a Carbon County tradition of pride and integrity in accomplishment.

Some of the families buried in that cemetery include Johnston (Nine Mile pioneer ranchers), D'Ambrosio (county farmers), Peterson and Meade (families involved in many county projects) and Will Robinson (built the first motel in Price), William E. Cassaday (stage coach driver, school teacher, musician).

These deceased people, in their time, contributed to the well being and progress of the Carbon community. Their descendents have served in the military forces.

So, they are "Gone but not forgotten" and now with a neat and clean appearing cemetery, thanks to Krompel and his staff.

I am proud to be from Carbon County where I grew up and learned about community pride.
