The Ohio Company was careful to set aside public lands for the public good. Just a a bunch of socialist community organizers, I guess.

Community Organizers should not be rewarded for organizing the taking of one productive Citizen's money to hand it over to a noisy sub-organizer to play with.

For those of us who do not have time to fish, why should we be told to give up tax dollars (grants are tax dollars wrapped up in brown paper wrappers for hand off to others) for someone else's recreation? If the "lake" fills up, the Government could sell the land, and collect taxes from it. There was no "lake" before the****was installed. The authorities did not maintain it properly. Do not trust them with another expensive boondoggle project. Turn it over to private ownership. Get the Government out of the real estate and recreation "business".

Hockeypuck - Ortt and others like her have done more for this community than most of us ever will. When you put in 1/100 of the volunteer hours for this community that she has, then you can whine about your taxes. If you did put in those kinds of hours, the MT would be contacting you for quotes.

tessie, coliform and ecoli are present in the digestive tracts of humans and animals and are excreted through their waste. many resevoirs have a rather large buffer area around them to prohibit run-off of waste from industrial or amateur farmers. this cuts down on the amount of coliform in any water source. in addition nutrient rich waters promote the growth of clogging water plants in bodies of water. this can be treated but you are correct in someone putting forth the effort to pinpoint the sources of the contamination. it may well do everyone a service to research how contamination of our water sources occur.

Please keep Ortt out of it. She is a "do-gooder" that wastes our tax money, that we paid. She loves to spend other people's money. I wonder if she ever gives a thought as to where the money she loves to spend comes from?

As a fequent and long time user of the lake, I feel DNR should up date the facility. It has long been neglected. After dredging and filtering incoming streams, restocking with table safe fish & forage fish should be a priority. Sportsmen & women spend millions of dollars in our area

There should be a fairly low cost and easy way to at least find where the e coli contamination begins on Goose Run. Wouldn't that help to pinpoint the source of contamination?
