Courthouse Fountain

Today I drove past the historic Jackson County Courthouse and saw a crew working on the big fountain at the foot of the endless courthouse steps.

I'd heard there were problems with the fountain. It's been sitting empty for a long time. Years ago, when anyone did bother to fill the fountain and switch it on, pranksters would usually toss in a box of detergent. Next morning, you'd see a two foot layer of suds all over the fountain.

Maybe the new fountain won't be at risk of such nonsense. Maybe it'll be a COLORFUL fountain, like it was in the good old days...
