Arson at Franciscan

Someone set the Franciscan University sign on fire with several incendiary devices. No one has claimed responsibility so we don't know if it was simply an act of vandalism or if it was directed against the University deliberately. Fortunately, the sign is pretty resistant to fire due to the wet weather and the varnish protection. Still, it's upsetting.

Upsetting but also curiousity inducing. Please keep us informed of whether it turns out to be random vandalism or someone making a "statement".

Saw the damage this morning. What a shame!

Sign looked fine in the afternoon once it had a fresh coat of paint. For whatever reason it was set, I hope it doesn't happen again.
