Thankfully GR has never had a big graffiti problem. I guess we have a few kids around with too much free time on their hands now that school is out. If they keep going they will be seen by someone, caught and their parents should reimburse the taxpayers for any repainting. On the positive side at least these types of headlines are better then reading about a father throwing heroine out the window of his car with a baby in the back seat, people biting cops and beating each other over water pressure! The summer is not off to a good start! Lets hope the rest of the year is filled only with positive headlines. (Hey I can dream can't I?)
