Re: Pacheco Cemetery, Contra Costa County, CA
This message was sent out to the Friends of Pacheco Cemetery which has been trying to
persuade the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors that the public acquired title to
this cemetery through operation of law. The supervisors refuse to claim the public's
legal interest. (For more info, go to: www.usgennet.org/usa/ca/state/Pacheco_Cem.htm
A new "owner" just took "possession" of the public's cemetery last
week. The following message is meant to query responses to the subject question....
I'm sure Ms. Williams would like to hear from others as to the appropriateness of
grazing sheep in a nearly destroyed historic California cemetery.
Please send your comments to her at Kiwimam8(a)cs.com. She will pass them on to the new

Subject: Sheep in the Cemetery?
Mr. Bianco has asked for our input on an idea to "rent" sheep for a time and
have them dig out and eat the weeds. It would mean the cemeery would have to be locked
for that timeframe, not sure how long, a few weeks? maybe.
I told him I'd send the idea out for reaction and get back to him.
Let me know, please.
