SILVIS -- Talk about a fancy paint job! The water tower in town got a makeover. It now looks like a golf ball on a tee.

The look is in honor of the Annual John Deere Classic Golf Tournament held here. The mayor says the tower needed a fresh coat, so they just decided to "bedazzle" it a little.

Word about the tower's new look spread quickly. Now it's in the running for Tank of the Year which an industrial coating company does each year. The winner will be announced in November.
