CHAMPAIGN -- An old friend is getting a little makeover. The Prayer for Rain statue in West Side Park will undergo some much-needed renovation to its base. It was created in 1899. The top portion was restored 100 years later. The same firm which recently restored the Alma Mater will do the work. It should be finished next month.
