The Dave Golando Big Band, Big Bore Brass and the Silver Creek High School Chorus performed at a concert to benefit flood victims in Silver Creek. The musicians donated their time and talents to thank first responders and the many people who offered their help after Silver Creek and neighboring areas were devastated by floodwaters. Musician Bud Lowery, a Silver Creek resident, organized the event. As the region repairs itself and works its way back to normalcy, the Silver Creek Mayor Kurt G. Lindstrom says one big concern that still remains is clearing debris out the water where Silver Creek and Walnut Creek converge. He's worried that ice jams could become worse this year if the debris remains. So far, the Army Corps of Engineers has said the village will have to hire - and pay - a private company to do the work. Lindstrom continues to look for a solution.
