Some colorful, detailed graffiti that was painted on a retaining wall overlooking Kellogg Beach in La Playa earlier in July has been painted away.

There is come concern among the locals that gangsters may have discovered the quiet beaches off Rosecrans Street in Point Loma. Residents say there have been groups coming down to lounge on the beaches, reportedly bringing along loose dogs (identified as “pit bulls”) and alcohol.
