In a questionable island ritual that goes back many years, some Bainbridge High School graduating seniors think it’s cool to partake in “Paint Night,” leaving their marks around the island on roads, signs and walls.

Reactions from the community vary from amused to nostalgic (mostly from those former BHS grads who consider it a tradition), and perhaps the largest group who think of it as plain vandalism.

Whatever it is, time to clean up the mess, again.
