Lake Jackson is a crazy spot here in Tallahassee. I have a friend with property that is "lakefront," but the majority of the time, he can't even see
the water from his home, it is all grasslands behind his house.
I have seen pictures of Lake Jackson draining so quickly that it literally formed a vortex, and people had to tie off from one boat to another to keep
from losing their boats into the sinkhole. The last time the lake drained suddenly, the local news ran specials encouraging people to rush out and
collect the fish from the little ponds that were left behind. There were large Bass and Catfish that people were picking up with their hands and
tossing in coolers.
The State and Federal authorites, have dumped 100s of tons of construction debris into the largest of the holes, just to watch it disappear into the
Most recently, the state spent $6 million on a "turtle
to help the turtles cross Hwy 27 N, from Lake Jackson to some other little appendant lakes. It was a political folly that was perfect
for satirists, billboard writers, and opponents of the reigning administrations.
I would love for someone to go back through the archives and see how many millions of dollars have been spent on a losing battle with Mother Nature in
Lake Jackson over the last 100 years. I bet it is in the Hundreds of Millions that have been quite literally "thrown down a hole!"
