The opinion of the News-Press
We are holding our collective breath to find out how things are shaping up for Grand View Memorial Park Cemetery, now that a new owner is finally in place and is apparently taking steps toward revitalizing the property.

The locked and effectively abandoned Grand View, set on once-idyllic acreage in northwest Glendale, has been a point of contention and frustration for its nearby residents for years. After all, who wants to live next to a place that has been mired in financial woes and, as a result, has become almost spooky enough to serve as a setting for a Stephen King novel?
