    Water, tobacco for the homeless guy
    Right by train tracks

    Ketona used to be a quarry, and was closed when the quarry pits filled with water and became Ketona Lakes 1 and 2.

    In 1950, the record bluegill bream was landed here, weighing in at 4lbs 12oz, and the record stood until 1998.

    Most recently Ketona has become practice grounds for the local graffiti kids and home for a homeless guy.

    In the spring/summer of 2011, either scrappers got to the place or a partial demo was started and equipment was removed and some buildings were half torn down.
