An article on the recent "lite" vandalism in Bloomington Cave hit
the front page of the Spectrum today! The article was requested by
Justin in response to being a witness to cavers who were underage
drinking, spreading crack glow sticks on the walls, and throwing
bear bottles down the Big Room. To Justin credit, he made the kids
clean up their mess of broken bottles and litter before they left
the cave. The rest of the visitors in the cave hailed Justin
heroics.

The article mentions the kiosk which Kyle and I are planning to
finish and install this weekend. Unsolicited the St. George BLM has
shoved $5,000 towards Kyle to construct a gate ASAP. So things are
happening amazingly fast.

Presently significant amount of new graffiti has added since the end
of the Graffiti Removal Project. The North Entrance was tagged on
the surface, however, ended just inside of the cave at the first
route flag. There also was some crayon marks in the Fanny Flume
that were easily removed. Plans are in the future to set up angle
grinders on a generator to remove the graffiti from the entrance
area in the North Entrance of the cave. Kyle has also procured 2
battery angle grinders to hunt down the remote tags throughout the
cave.
