The splash pad in Sims Park offers some relief from the heat for local children. On a recent morning Landon Roditis (center), 6, and his twin brother, Ethan Roditis (right) skipped through the spraying water as Amiya Jackson, 7, and her sister Jordynn, 5, cooled off in the background. The twins are regular visitors to the park, said their grandmother, Geralyn Griffiths, who kept watch from a shaded bench nearby with her husband, Raymond. "We come about once a week," she said, "usually in the morning to beat afternoon thunderstorms."
