A longtime resident is one step closer to solving the mystery of Soap Lake.
John Glassco's life mission has been to preserve and research the healing waters of Soap Lake. The Soap Lake Conservancy Board chairman recently passed along the only water samples taken from the lake before irrigation water diluted it to researchers. They hope to measure the mineral levels and find out what made it a mecca for those seeking relief from pain and inflammation.
