Foam fouls fountain – TimesObserver.com | News, Sports, Jobs, Community Information – The Times Observer.

Ok not a story even remotely related to a mental health issue, but it gave me a good laugh and over the years I’ve heard many people say that “laughter is the best medicine”.  A little about the fountain in the article.

the town is getting a facelift of sorts and the fountain has been a focal point of LOTS of controversy locally.  Opinions are polarized at best in most cases about whether or not it should have been built.

It is a very pretty fountain especially at night when it’s lit up.  At any rate, one of the early mentions of the fountain in the paper included something warning people not to sit on the deer which to be honest never would have crossed my mind to even think about doing had it not been mentioned in the paper.

So now in light of the controversy over the existence of the fountain, I’m not real sure which is more amusing … the idea that somone put soap in the water to make it bubble, or the idea that they ran an article about it in the newspaper.  Or for that matter that the article I linked here isn’t the only article in the paper today about the fountain …. wanna-be-city scrounging for news maybe?  So, yes I’m amused by the article that was posted on June 1, 2011 about someone putting soap in the controversial fountain causing it to foam sometime during the night of May 30 and the mornign of May 31 …. and I thought this sort of thing only happened in college towns … guess I was wrong on that one 🙂

Anyway, enjoy the article if you need some small town news to brighten your day 🙂
