Water To Go
Photograph by Landon Nordeman

John Bailey doesn't take home any water from the Merry Widow Health Mine, he just volunteered to fill up jugs for those who do. The mine's water and air both contain radon, which some folks say provides relief from arthritis, allergies, headaches, psoriasis, and a host of other ailments. "I don't have too much wrong with me, so I just come for prevention," says John. "Oh, I got laziness, but the water doesn't do much for that."
