Recent news: Racist graffiti, pop-up car show, and "mysterious" bricks

Racist graffiti at Glatfelter's

 A reader sent Columbia Spy the above photo of racist and other graffiti that was painted on the rubber backing on a backstop at Glatfelter's Field. The graffiti reportedly appeared over the last few days.

 Workers removed the graffiti-riddled rubber backing and placed it in the dumpster at Glatfelter's. No suspects have been reported at this time.

Pop-up car show

 Columbia Spy received a report of a pop-up car show that occurred at Glatfelter's Field on Sunday night at about 8 p.m. As the sign above indicates, the park is closed to any group activity while the county is still in the "red zone." No organized activity is permitted until final notice. There is no apparent connection between the car show and the graffiti.

"Mysterious" bricks

 Last night Columbia Spy received two reports from citizens of pallets of bricks being placed at the parking lot at the bottom of Locust Street.

The citizens were concerned that the bricks could be used in local protests on Election Day.  We have not received reports of any such activity today. A source says that the bricks are to be used in Market House construction.
