Church members fed up with graffiti

The members of the Harlandale Baptist Church had just painted over weekend graffiti when they were hit again.
"It's everywhere, everywhere you look," South Side resident Tiffany Wigley said.
The streets on the South Side are covered in an array of colors, but it's not the vibrant vision they want associated with their community.
Perhaps no one knows more about the frustrations brought on by taggers than Pastor Dan Trevino of Harlandale Baptist Church.
"Nothing's safe; nothing's sacred," Trevino said.
Now there is a plea — and a message of forgiveness — in hopes the guilty graffiti artists hear his prayers.
It is a felony to tag a church, and fines can vary. But for those left to clean the mess, like Trevino, the investment is several thousand dollars.
