(AP) — Authorities in California are searching for whoever painted giant graffiti along Highway 1 attacking the impact of tourism on Big Sur, the scenic stretch of rugged coast that is a major destination for visitors. The California Highway Patrol was informed around noon on July 14 the words "OVERTOURISM IS KILLING BIG SUR" were written in gold paint near iconic Bixby Bridge. A banner with the same message was hung on the bridge July 6. The group who hung the sign told KRON-TV they were not behind the graffiti vandalism. According to the Monterey Herald , workers removed the paint Wednesday morning. The California Department of Transportation says the labor and materials used in removing the paint will cost the state $1,700.

Jim Harbaugh wasn't thrilled with Karan Higdon's decision to skip the Peach Bowl, even if he respected his right to do so. But, the silver lining in Michigan not having its top running back for the final game of the season was its ability to evaluate the future. And the future has been underway for more than a month now.
