The Sulphur Springs Police Department has figured out what happened to mar several stones of the Hopkins County Veterans Memorial over the weekend. Video showed an 8 or 9 year old girl playing between the stones of the Memorial. Speculation was that pizza and soft drinks had caused the spotting on the stones. It turned out the girl was throwing seed pods from a Magnolia tree up against the memorial’s stones. Police Chief Jay Sanders said the stains should clean up without too much problem.
