  Original Published: 10/18/2013 Talk about a fancy paint job. The water tower in Silvis, Illinois got a make-over. It now looks like a golf ball on a tee. The look is in honor of the annual John Deere Classic golf tournament, held in Silvis. The city's mayor says the tower needed a fresh coat, they just decided to bedazzle it a bit. Word about the tower's new look spread quickly. And now, the tower is in the running for "Tank of the Year" on the Tnemec.com website. The winner will be announced next month.
