A graffiti "tagger" spray-painted a statue of Father Junipero Serra that stands in front of Ventura's City Hall, Ventura police reported Monday. Police received the report about 11 a.m. Monday, and the black stenciled letters were removed from the statue by late Monday. No cost estimate was given for removing the graffiti. The statue, which stands more than nine feet tall, is a bronze and granite replica of a Depression-era work that stood in front of City Hall for more than 50 years.

The sea-battered Ventura Pier, built back when this beach-side town was more accessible by water than roadway, reopened Saturday after a seven-month, $2.2-million renovation to bolster the historic monument against the weight of the Pacific. Balmy weather drew about 2,500 people to the beach to admire the pier's new octagonal end, steel-reinforced pilings and dozens of aesthetic changes designed to make the structure more inviting.

Starting next month, the city's historic wooden pier will get an overhaul, to replace a section destroyed more than three years ago by giant waves and to bolster the local landmark against future storms. The California Coastal Commission last week approved the construction of an 80-foot octagonal extension of the Ventura Pier. "Years ago, the pier used to be really a gathering place with the hustle and bustle of activity," Ventura Mayor Jim Friedman said.
