Destruction of east lakeshore wet land

Maybe if I had attended the meetings of FLPOA i wouldn’t be surprised by the changes underway at the east shore of the lake. Construction Equipment is on the lake shore that has always been forested. No more, The trees have been knocked down, the landscape turned into mud, bushes and plants de-nuded. The area has been a sanctuary for birds and animals. Osprey, Eagles, white egrets, herons and beavers have been visible amongst the thick foliage. No more. I don’t know what is planned for the area but is sad to see the transformation from a wet land to a development, When we moved to the lake shore in 1997 a ripparian zone prohibited construction within 35 feet of the shoreline. Apparently our wetlands along the lake shore are no longer protected. I am sad to see the change.

Fairview Lake Algae Alert Update July 15th

A potentially toxic algae bloom continues its life cycle in the lake. This is one of our annual algae blooms which might produce toxins as it decomposes. Samples taken on June 28th did not produce toxins when analyzed by the lab. The typical blue/green algae life cycle is three to five weeks and different algae strains that produce toxins could break out at any time.

We are early in our summer and can expect a second blue/green algae bloom on the lake. All users of the lake should be cautious with water activities when the bloom occurs. During an algae bloom, lake residents are encouraged to keep children and pets out of the water. Adults should refrain from swimming to avoid eye irritation and/or intestinal illness. Boating and fishing are safe currently.

For now, be alert with water activity, especially children and pets. If an algae turns toxic we won’t know until after it happens.

“Sad Message from Bettianne Goetz”

sunset 007

“Al Goetz, who lived on Interlachen Lane for 45 years, died suddenly Friday night.  It appears to have been a heart attack.  He and his wife, Bettianne, were instrumental in the formation of FLPOA.  Al always loved our fun activities on the lake. He enjoyed being in the our famous 4th of July parade as his boat was famous for years for the folding chair routine! He and Bettianne always enjoyed the mid-lake socials on Saturday nights. They raised two daughters, Debbie and Jill, on the lake.  Daughter Jill and her family built on the south shore right across from home!!
A celebration of life will be held sometime after the holidays. We will miss him very much.”
