Zuchi’s father Dorjgotov Altangerel, a sophomore from Chicago studying mining engineering, said he tries to bring his son to the park everyday. “There are not a lot of water parks in the area, so this is a nice alternative to the regular parks around here,” he said.

Ross Bauer, of Murphysboro, thins out a grape vine Tuesday at Alto Pass Vineyards in Alto Pass. The vine will eventually produce chambourcin wine, which will be sold at the vineyard. Alto Pass Vineyard is in the process of building an indoor lounge area, said Julie Harvey, the vineyard’s marketing director. “It will be a great place to enjoy local flavors and socialize outside of the rowdy drunk crowd,” she said.


Shari Sweeney, of Carbondale, helps move a tomato trellis at her Greenridge Farm. Sweeney waters her organic vegetables from a nearby pond, but because of the drought the water level is well below average. Because fish and turtles live in the pond, Sweeney said she would stop using the pond if the water level continues to drop.
