Oct. 9 -- Fall is upon us, and it is beginning to reflect in the colors of the leaves. Over the weekend, several trees at Kickapoo Creek Park were showing the signs of change, with brilliant-colored leaves interspersed with those that are still summertime green.

Oct. 11 -- Tuesday night the Mount Pulaski Lady Toppers volleyball team posed with the Sangamon Valley team for a picture commemorating the 2012 Volley for the Cure competition in Mount Pulaski.

The night included food, games, raffles and of course volleyball, all in support of those who are battling with breast cancer in the two communities. At the end of the evening, the funds raised during the event were divided equally among three recipients: Debbie Knoelder of Mount Pulaski and Cory Miller and Paula Rizer of Sangamon Valley.

Oct 12 -- Once in a while a picture is just so magnificent that no caption will do it justice. This shot taken Sunday night near Broadwell is one of those times.

Oct. 20 -- A break in a 10-inch water main in front of the Tropics restaurant, between Hickox Drive and Lincoln Parkway, resulted in minimal disruption at about 10:30 a.m. Friday. The water main shot water about 30 feet in the air and into traffic on Lincoln Parkway.

Oct. 20 -- According to Karen Cotton, spokeswoman for Illinois American Water Co., the main was quickly shut down and the company was keeping two customers advised of the situation.
