A video of what appears to be maintenance workers golfing in the veteran's section of Ocean View Cemetery has stirred up some controversy.

The Newtons, a vlogging family whose YouTube channel features stories of dog rescues, vegetarian cooking and kids' Christmas hauls, all here in Humboldt County, uploaded the video on May 17. In it, two men can be seen carrying golf clubs. When the Newtons' car rounds the corner, the men hustle off a grassy knoll to a waiting maintenance truck.

Reached for comment, cemetery administrator Don McCombs gave the following statement:

"We are appalled, we are looking into it and we will take appropriate action up to and including terminating any employee involved at any time."
