It's in clear view as you're coming off the H-3 freeway overlooking Kaneohe. It's the old Omega station used to house radio equipment for the Coast Guard. But it's become a favorite target of taggers, even though reaching the building isn't easy.

On Monday, volunteers joined the fight against graffiti, armed with buckets of paint and brushes. The Healthy Hawaii Coalition teamed up with the Honolulu Fire Department to repaint the building, which is now owned by the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands.
