  1. I’m sure the great majority of vandalism incidents involve tagging/graffiti to include spray painting, markers, “slap tags” and etching on glass. It’s a shame having to walk on Main St. and seeing all the glass front stores vandalized with etching. Safe to say a great deal of the culprits are minors from the area (including the high school). The sidewalks are always stained, there’s trash in the planters, cigarette butts strewn about. It’s a shame I have to leave my city and go to Pasadena or elsewhere to find a cleaner, more inviting environment.
