  The Islamic Center of Owensboro has been vandalized for the second time in less than a year. Dr. AseeduKalik, treasurer for the center, told local media that paint was thrown at the Islamic Center sign sometime over the weekend.

The act of vandalism follows a January incident in which someone squirted ketchup on the center's sign. According to a sheriff's department report at the time, the damage was not permanent.

 
Kalik said he doesn't want people to get frustrated about the acts of a few individuals, because "that is not what the bigger community is about."

 
Kalik said the Owensboro Police Department assured him they would be making extra patrols in the area.
