"' Photo by Scott Swanson New mural installation Muralist Larry Kangas, above, and his wife Sandy, put the finishing touches on Sweet Home's latest, a 1984 Cheverolet Caprice police car with now-retired Officer Bill Davis inside. Kangas, who has worked on other murals in Sweet Home, installed the latest on the wall of the old W.E. White and Son Jewelry building at 1206 Main St. on Monday, May 14. The mural was pre-painted of fabric, so the Kangases attached it to the wall, which is too rough in texture to have a mural painted directly on it, With adhesive.
