"I'm an old river rat. I wouldn't be comfortable living here if I wasn't," said Nate Smith,who canoes around his backyard, 

picking up items and bringing them to higher ground at his home along Cardinal Drive in Evansville on Tuesday. Recent 

rains have caused flooding of low-lying areas around Pigeon Creek. "This is my environment too. I don't want it to get polluted. I fish in there," said Smith, who picked up a couple of tires and other would-be pollutants.
