The mystery foam at the Grande Villa's outdoor fountain is solved...this time


September 12, 2018

A few days after the initial foamy scene at the Charlie Russell statue in Chinook the foam has steadily been going away. Still, nearly a week after the original onslaught of soap by practical jokers, the soap foam begins to build as the pumps begin each morning. Those in the know say time will take care of most of the problem.

Alert readers may recall two photos in the September 5 issue of the "Journal" of the mysterious foam at the outdoor fountain at the southeast corner of the Grande Villa's grounds. Regarding the origin of the foam, the question was: Is the foam at Charlie Russell's feet from natural causes or from prankster-induced soap? Locals were about evenly split on the cause, some recalling having seen similar suds after rains and others convinced it was the act of tricksters. I was asked to find the answer, and here it is. But first, some background.
