Jesus on a Pole -- Updated
Sometime Tuesday night, one or more individuals vandalized the utility pole at the corner of Dickey and Sixth streets, which visitors say displays the image of Jesus.
A black marker was used on the “face” of the pole, adding a thick mustache.
Maribel Martinez, who first saw Jesus on the Pole, is reportedly furious and says that she will have the miscreants arrested.
Meanwhile, other denizens of Alice claim the pole has still more holy powers than previously believed – some see the Sacred Heart of Jesus and others see the Virgin Mary.
“It’s there, I feel something,” on onlooker told the Echo-News. “I’m feeling the Holy Spirit here.”
Maybe the Holy Spirit drew the mustache too. Who’s to say Jesus hasn’t had a make-over?
