Lookout PM: BLM mural vandalism trial set, and a new vaccine on the way

Happy Monday, folks,

Hope you all got after it today feeling nice and refreshed.

It seemed a little cool around these parts today, did it not? The temperature only reached the mid-60s today — a bit chilly for the middle of summer.

Let’s kick off today’s headlines with a step forward for a now year-long story...

Lookout Update: Alleged BLM mural vandals Brandon Bochat and Hagan Warner are facing total restitution payments of $19,623 — well below the $114,000 sought by the prosecution. Their trial, which has been set for Oct. 10, will decide whether they’re guilty and what the punishment beyond restitution could look like. See the latest here.

Daily Recap

We’re off to a great start of the week here at Lookout, and we hope you are too. Until tomorrow, take care!
