MILLBURY - The Lake School District rebuilt after a tornado flattened the high school, so what's a little flood in the middle school?
Lake administrators handled another disaster last week when a water-fire suppression line broke Tuesday night in the middle school.
Superintendent Jim Witt said water flooded 10 classrooms, damaged ceilings and a little drywall, and soaked floors. Administrators are also closely watching one corner of the gym that got water, to see if the floor buckles.
"It's one of those things," Witt said.
There would have been even more damage if an alarm hadn't been signaled with the Lake Township Fire Department when the water pressure dropped.
The break happened in the middle of a snow storm and record-breaking cold temperatures that closed Lake and other area schools all last week.

Police are investigating a late-night traffic crash that heavily damaged a 114-year-old home in the 800 block of West Wooster Street.
According to Maj. Tony Hetrick of BG Police, at 11:16 p.m. Eleesha Long, 21, Bowling Green, was westbound on West Wooster when she failed to negotiate the turn and drove over the curb and into the corner of the covered front porch of 804 W. Wooster. PHOTO BLOG
The impact caused a portion of the porch’s roof to collapse. Significant damage to wood and brick work was also evident, and deep ruts could be seen in the yard.

Glenn Haught almost never takes a vacation.
He doesn’t want to.
“I don’t like sitting at home,” Haught said. “I don’t know what I’d do.”
Being the owner of Glenn’s Shoe Repair is a dream Haught didn’t start off with, but he’s sure glad he has it now.
After selling Western attire for several years, Haught took a special interest in boots, and ultimately shoe repair.
“I just like everything I do,” Haught said. “I enjoy taking old shoes and making them look good again.”
Haught has been getting down to the sole of the matter for 38 years in Bowling Green. He’s been at his current location at 117 Clay St. for six years.
For Haught, repairing shoes has a deeper meaning – especially in the hustle and bustle of 2014.

Patrons at BG pizza shop pay it forward PDF Print E-mail

The concept of paying it forward has been around for a while, but lunch patrons at Campus Pollyeyes on Saturday took it to another level.
As a group of armed forces members enjoyed their meal, an anonymous couple wanted to show their appreciation for the soldiers' service. When they tried to pass along money to pay for the meal and were rebuffed - they were told the men couldn't accept the gift - the pair couldn't take no for an answer, said Dean Smith, manager of the restaurant.
"They just came up to the counter and went ahead and paid for it anyway," he said of the couple.
When they went to the register themselves and learned from their server what had happened, the service members picked up the tabs of the other four or five tables in the restaurant "without hesitation."
While the service members' total may have been about $60, Smith estimated they paid at least double that by treating the other customers.
"Everyone else was pretty excited about getting their bill paid for," Smith said. "It was a nice moment."
It was so moving - some customers cried in response to the gesture - so Smith shared the story via the restaurant's Twitter account, @Pollyeyes.
