Recovering Houck

Tuesday, March 10, 2015
A Putnam County Highway Department employee holds a ladder inside the Houck Covered Bridge Monday shortly after noon so that a colleague can paint over recent vandalism in the form of graffiti. In the distance, coworkers pressure wash various slogans and symbols off the bridge, including the phrase "Hail Satin," in an apparent misspelling of a reference to "Satan."

Bumgardner and several other Putnam County Highway employees paid a visit to the bridge with paint, brushes and pressure washers to remove or cover up the multitude of offensive symbols and phrases found at the bridge last week.
