No matter how you feel about the psychedelic mural on Forest Lane, you have to admire the effort Brent Herling put into saving it. Last year, he and a group of volunteers painstakingly restored the original design, which was created in 1976. Why do we bring this up? On Sunday, a truck crashed into the painted wall. Luckily, the vehicle hit a part of the mural that was already damaged. Robert Wilonsky has more.
