A painting crew rolls up their drop clothes and leaves after painting over the Inland Octopus toy store mural on Main Street in Walla Walla on Thursday. The city of Walla Walla set Wednesday as the deadline for the toy store owner to remove on oversize octopus sign or the city would paint it over and send him the bill. Inland Octopus owner Bob Catsiff has lost every court decision in the sign code dispute that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The mural of a purple octopus on the store front was painted in September 2010 without a permit.
