Probably should post this under the DA & BO Fence Fund Thread, but, has a interview with Candice about the Rose Hill Situation.

Here is the e-mail addy of city councilman, Charles Jones (the one who seemed to be unsure of the viewing platform and the city's liability):

charles.jones@macon.ga.us

Maybe if a few of us dropped him a brief note ...

Seriously, this platform won't cost the city any money (private funds). A sign entering the platform stating that the city bears no responsibility for injuries should meet the requirements.

If the City of Macon has questions of what they are liable for if someone falls off the platform (kinda hard to do with the railing called for in the plans), then why haven't they addressed the issue of this set of steps that thousands of people use every year?

Sheeze. I never saw that photo before of grafatti. Brrrr, sorry. Ya know, it's sickening how Macon promotes its cemetary as the main tourist attraction. Maybe not on purpose. And yes, this is a place of rest, respect, and good gosh, HIS SISTER has asked nicely, politely, kindly, please, stop, just like any other cemetary and grave. These were people. There is a nice urn to leave some FLOWERS. How about moving camp up the road, just a piece/peace.There are so many other lively party spots, scenery, landscapes, eateries, campgrounds, historical exhibits, and lots of beautiful Music in Macon.

Maybe I'm getting too presumptious and weird but as far as I know, and I don't know, Duane Allman, never descrecrated a grave there although he was there? I'm sorry if I'm out of line. He never left it any different? Both Duane and Berry loved Macon? Very nice place.

There have never been any reports of either Berry or Duane....or any of the actual band members that I know of....ever damaging anything in Rose Hill. In fact, they weren't really there that much to begin with. The legend is far more interesting than the reality.

I've been posting them here for several years. Let me know if you want to see more of those from the past.

And speaking of photos, would you mind posting one of what the site looks like now while the construction is in progress?

I wanted to let everyone know that originally, the plans were to have the fence and platform in place for the visitors who went to Macon for GABBA. Unfortunately, because the city council decided to raise issues that had already, to our understanding, had been resolved, the construction of the fence was delayed for over a month and has only started recently.

Because there is still a three foot trence around the graves that pose a danger to anyone visiting the graves, and because liability is an issue, people visiting the graves have been asked to return later after the project is finished. I know it's a disappointment to everyone who wanted to drop by to pay their respects, but the timing is just off for now. I thought it needed to be explained why people aren't beling allowed at the gravesites this weekend.

Here's some from Friday.



This one was shot from the same angle as the one from last July. If you look closely, you can see the flags where the platform will be.



PS: If you are at GABBA, and want to visit, please stay off the wall across the steps. That little gully you see goes under the wall and there's nothing supporting it since the rain has washed the dirt from under there.

Nice angle on that bottom one Jerry -- these two photos tell a lot as to how the fence might look -- I think it's being planned well, thewy're leaving ample room for the platform & green space etc -- and it looks to me like the graves will still be visible...
that is quite a scenic cemetery -- the fence I think will really look nice

I like the name because I know flowers, even though the name Rose Hill has nothihng to do with flowers. It had to do with persons by that name. Still, I see no Roses at Rose Hill. Yellow roses mean sorrow, white roses mean friendship, and red roses mean love. Roses do not grow in nature withour pruning the **** er bush by human hands. I would like to see a picture of Roses at Rose Hill.

The gravesite is in the Carnation Ridge section, which as you can see, has no carnations and is really a valley.
There are plantings of roses at the main entrance, and wild climbing roses can be found below the Bond Monument, almost at the place where the album photo was shot.

I'll get some photos of those for you as they bloom.

Where you see the trench, vision a brick supporting base for the fence (old brick in keeping with the settings), and a black wrought iron fence with spear type finials extending above that.
The viewing platform will be slightly higher than the graves and will give a nice view of the entire area. The platform will not be a "deck", but will be built on a concrete base covered
with the old brick.

This is the shot from last July

So am I. There have been more than a few detractors who never thought the money would be spent on a fence and one or two that outright implied the project was a scam. It's nice to have the fence underway!

What would a new liver have cost for Callahan, I wonder. Wish we'd started a fund for that cause. Life is sooo precious.
Anyway, everything looks tasteful and all. Maybe this issue will be a closed one soon enough. Sure hope so.

If it was important to people to raise money to help Mike receive a liver transplant it would have been nice had someone started a fundraiser. I'm certain a number of people would have contributed. It's not really fair to come into a fence fund thread and imply indirectly that the money could have been spent for a better purpose. It's talking apples and oranges. If you follow that logic, some of the money people have been donating to the big house foundation could have been diverted to a transplant fund as well. I haven't read anywhere that someone has suggested that the foundation monies could have been applied elsewhere for a better purpose. And yes, I'll be glad when the fence is up and the fence fund threads sink to the bottom.
