This is a later entry on the water tower. I marked it as found on this date, which is the date that the tower was removed. For the complete story check the local newspaper the Tipton Times - Volume 135 - Number 21 - Thursday September 23, 2010.

I've been by this water tower many times. It's scheduled to be removed in a couple of weeks.

Saw it today. kgbinmo's pic is of the wrong tank.

GOT THIS ONE ON THE WAY TO MOGA 2007.
STILL HERE.
