In the aftermath of the arrest of a Lakeview Cemetery groundskeeper for allegedly stealing money and equipment, there is a call to stakeholders and plot owners to take action.

Richard Ehrlich is the sole board member left at the cemetery, and says something needs to be done to provide more oversight and competence in running the hallowed ground.

“We can talk about the future and how we intend to make a strong management…with people from the community who have competence and concern about the cemetery,” Ehrlich said.

Groundskeeper Scott Goodrich was arrested in February and is accused of stealing money and selling equipment.

A meeting to reconstruct the board will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday at Ithaca Town Hall.

FILE- This is a 1967 handout image from Parlophone of The British group, The Beatles,. From left, are: Ringo Starr, John Lennon, Paul McCartney; and George Harrison. The woman who as a child was the basis for the Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" is gravely ill. It was thought by many at the time that the psychedelic song from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band was a paean to LSD because of the initials in the title, but it was actually based on a drawing that John Lennon's young son Julian brought home from school. He told his father the drawing was of Lucy in the sky with diamonds. Lucy Vodden, now living in Surrey just outside of London _ drifted apart after schoolyard days, but they have gotten back in touch as Lennon has tried to help Vodden cope with Lupus, a life-threatening disease.

For author Mark Lewisohn, telling the story of the rock band the way it deserves to be told will take time - a quarter-century, to be exact.
