Sick of the constant graffiti tagging along Hoover Walk, a cement staircase at the north end of Hoover St., just below Prospect Ave., residents of Franklin Hills took action. It took years to do, but with the help of the city and the will of the community, Muralist Ricardo Mendoza's colorful artwork will be officially dedicated tomorrow at 11 a.m. with the neighborhood, Councilman Tom LaBonge and Mendoza.
