It appears the Johnson shaft has opened up again. For the third time. The area over the shaft in the bank parking lot is once again barricaded with orange fence, and from a distance a hole was covered with plywood. Think this is one shaft that should just be fended off ?

I repair tools for Scandale Construction and asked the manager about it around a year ago, they have no immediate plans to do anything. I asked about dropping a camera via a small winch into it and he said the company would be also interested. I never did much although.

Drove by it today. Nothing really to see unless you hop the fence and remove the wood that's covering the hole. How deep does it go down? Would be cool to see.

I like chocolate chip cookies
