For 80 years, the Star on the Mountain has been a shining source of pride for El Pasoans.
But lately, it’s not being treated with the respect it deserves.
The El Paso Chamber said in a Facebook post Tuesday that there has been an uptick in vandalism, including broken bulbs and broken bottles.
“We are asking our community to please refrain from breaking and removing the star’s bulbs. For many decades, the star has been a symbol for El Paso, something we can count on looking up at every night,” the post said.
El Paso’s iconic Star on the Mountain is glowing blue in honor of El Paso’s law enforcement for the entire month of November.
I’m thinking the vandals are all wearing Guy Fawkes masks.
