Stephanie Dumm/News Messenger : Joe Caples, a maintenance worker with the city of Lincoln, removes drain plugs from the fountain to remove the soapy water from the fountain. ?I have to drain it, wash it out and refill it,? Caples said. ?It happens every school year, usually when school starts.?
Stephanie Dumm/News Messenger Levi, 6, and Sophia Prust, 8, took a few minutes Monday afternoon to play with bubbles that had mysteriously appeared in the fountain in Beermann Plaza. ?It reminds me of a bathtub,? Sophia said. Levi, Sophia and their family are from Cool, and had lunch in downtown Lincoln before stopping to socialize in the plaza.
