    Ariana van den Akker/The Herald Southridge Middle School sixth-grader Kolby Jones of Huntingburg pointed to a silhouette of a shark painted on the ceiling of the school library during a class visit to the library last Friday. The ceiling and the walls are covered by a mural created by Orange Moon Art Studio, comprised of Michael and Amanda Smith of Evansville. The mural is meant to represent the imaginative process that comes from reading.
