"The gorilla is the old Weippe High School mascot, and its image graced the water tower for more than four decades. But four years ago the water tower was painted solid white.

And last year Weippe residents and city leaders grappled for months over whether to repaint the beast. Gorilla art advocates won the debate, launching a $1,500 fund-raising campaign to pay for the paint job.

Organizer Bev Bailey says nearly all the money has been collected. And the painting will start as soon as weather permits."
