Boys sit on the railing Wednesday afternoon as the Possum Run Creek rushes through a new drainage tile in Mary Rutan Park. Heavy rains in early April have caused water levels to rise in creeks like Possum Run, but no significant flooding has yet been reported. There is a chance of thunderstorms tonight and into early Friday. (EXAMINER PHOTO | REUBEN MEES)

Bowl benefit

ILHS-bowls

Freshman Nakiah Dague paints a design on one of dozens of bowls designed by Indian Lake High School art students for a fundraising ice cream social from 3 to 5:30 p.m. Thursday in the art room at the high school. Buy a bowl for $5 and fill it with ice cream and toppings. Proceeds go to Our Daily Bread of Indian Lake. The ceramics class project was made possible in part by a $500 Logan County Education Foundation grant, with which art teacher Erin Miller purchased an additional pottery wheel for the classroom.
