It’s a good summer for ducks


The sign at Graham Middle School on the eastern edge of St. Paris seems ironic as rain fell around the area again on Monday creating flooding and making drainage areas, creeks and rivers rush madly along in a muddy stream of runoff. In addition to the heavy rain on Monday, parts of the DP&L service area between Urbana and St. Paris lost electrical power for part of the afternoon. Crews were seen working in the area between Mad River and Muzzy’s Road at approximately 1:45 p.m. and customers were told power would be restored by approximately 2:30 p.m.
