It appears as though that guy skiing was back on the calm water by the islands. I hope the wake patrol was on wake patrol, and that no fish were harmed while the boat was driving by...

Let's all take a deep breathe & assume ALL have an abiding interest in doing what's best for the lake. If we can keep personal attacks out of this discussion & stick to the issues, we'd be well served. Let's respect one another, assume the best about others, and keep the conversation based on facts.

I'm on the LLAA Board and I am not aware of any new proposed restrictions???
The no wake zone was created to protect our Lake. (As an X skier, I questioned that! After some research, it seems reasonable that a no wake zone protects our shoreline, providing essential nutrients to the lake/fish. It gives some quiet water for our X skiers, fisherman & gals, kayakers etc.)

Dennis Landgraf:
Sally, I read your post with interest. Having not only been on the lake over 50 years and having my family operate two resorts on this lake, I feel that I am in a unique position to comment as I can see this from a resident's perspective as well as a business perspective.
You are quick to say that the no wake zone was created to protect our lake by protecting the shoreline, which in turn provides essential nutrients to the lake and fish. Further, you were compelled to offer your own opinion about having “quiet water” for X-Skiers, fisherman & gals and kayakers.
1. Having read the study, which I encourage everyone to do (it will literally take only 15 minutes) you will come to realize that not once, (that’s right, NOT ONCE) in that report does it say that waterskiing behind the islands is causing “ANY” problems. There is only one sentence, and that is the second last sentence of this “report” that mentions anything about a no wake zone behind the islands, yet nothing to support the statement made. There are no supporting facts anywhere in this “report” regarding anything that is currently being talked about. I am actually taken aback on how poorly the study was written and put together. It looks and reads as though an 8th grader put it together. The fact that Ron Kruger actually took money for this work is criminal. He and his company should be embarrassed.
2. Your own opinion about having “quiet water” is nonsensical and problematic. Your views as a board member need to be fully evaluated as I do not want a board member who is so strong in her own views that she cannot see where others are coming from. This shows that you believe our lake should be divided into separate areas in which we can enjoy our chosen recreational activities.
3. I challenge you and anyone else to prove that I read this “report” incorrectly. Please show me where the report mentions that skiing, or a wake of any kind behind the islands, is actively harming our lake. I only read that it COULD and POSSIBLY harm our lake, but nothing that says that it was, is, and/or will, in the future, harm our lake.
4. I would be happy to email the study to anyone interested. I cannot post the link on here, but would be more than happy to send it.

Time to out the frauds:
I hear that Larry was so beside himself, he pissed his pants. Barney Fife (aka Larry Sommer) is perfect! By the way, has everyone seen the "natural beach" he has in front of his house. What a hypocrite!! Just remember, he stood up at an LLAA meeting 4 years ago and said "All Skiers are Assholes". This is who we are dealing with. Then you have the likes of Braunreiter and Hickman. Both are in favor of placing sking hours on the lake and expanding the no wake to encompass the entire south end of the lake. Maybe the pot has finally caught up with Braunreiter.

Think its unfair? 
Thursday, 3. August 2017 12:02 PM  Write a comment

Nobody has a "right" to serve in the Military. Nobody.

What makes people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer? Very far from it.

The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short.

Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing or additional fingers. Poor eyesight will disqualify you, as well as bad teeth. Malnourished? Drug addiction? Bad back? Criminal history? Low IQ? Anxiety? Phobias? Hearing damage? Six arms? Hear voices in your head? Self-identify as a Unicorn? Need a special access ramp for your wheelchair? Can't run the required course in the required time? Can't do the required number of pushups?

Not really a "morning person" and refuse to get out of bed before noon?

All can be reasons for denial.

The Military has one job. War. Anything else is a distraction and a liability.

Did someone just scream "That isn't Fair"? War is VERY unfair, there are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful.

YOU change yourself to meet Military standards. Not the other way around.

I say again: You don't change the Military... you must change yourself.

The Military doesn't need to accommodate anyone with special issues. The Military needs to Win Wars.

If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality... Thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavors. Who's next in line?

And that is why Trump doesn't want Transgender folks.

Town of Lincoln Meeting

Please attend the August 14th Town of Lincoln meeting, rumor has it that a gentleman that resides on the south end of the lake is trying to establish a more solidified no wake area, as well as talk of possible skiing hours on the lake.

Lake Lucerne is recreational lake... We cannot let the minds of few individuals take this away from the rest of us.

Please attend...

Health Care Explained in 4 Sentences

This e-mail is for all you Americans that the U.S. Government has confused with their nonsense about healthcare. First of all, before Barack Obama came into office, the United States had the best health care system in the world. In fact people came from all over the world when they had serious problems to be treated right here in this country.

No, not everybody could afford this. The guy living under the bridge couldn't. The people who choose not to work couldn't. The illegal immigrants flooding into the country etc. etc. However the vast majority of Americans did have a family doctor and were receiving adequate healthcare. And they had been for about 200 years.

Then along came Obama and the Democratic Party. They decided to use the fact that every living person in the country did NOT have access to health care as a strategy to rally their liberal base. They even went so far as to claim it was "unconstitutional" (of course it wasn't). Then, the Democrats did what they always do, they demagogued the issue.

We have all heard these arguments before. It is not FAIR. It is RACIST. It is MISOGYNISTIC. Or even better, "IT'S FOR THE CHILDREN". Democrats always resort to false compassion and guilt. They know that this is what liberals respond to. Facts and logic have no place in the Democratic Party. Facts and logic never convince a liberal of anything.

Below is the Democratic Healthcare Plan explained in just 4 sentences. Please read it and maybe you will understand what is REALLY GOING ON. As for me, I will continue my belief in "personal responsibility" and in earning what I get. I will also choose who I want to help and decide who I don't want to help.

U.S. Health Care explained in just 4 Sentences

Is there a single soul who is surprised that an Engineer came up with this 10,535 pages reduced to 4 sentences?

A Great summary by a Notre Dame University engineer.
Here are the 10,535 pages of Obama Care condensed to 4 simple sentences. As humorous as it sounds...every last word is absolutely TRUE!

1. In order to insure the uninsured, we first have to un-insure the insured.

2. Next, we require the newly un-insured to be re-insured.

3. To re-insure the newly un-insured, they are required to pay extra charges to be re-insured.

4. The extra charges are required so that the original insured, who became un-insured, and then became re-insured, can pay enough extra so that the original un-insured can be insured, so it will be 'free-of-charge' to them.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is called "redistribution of wealth" or, by its more common name, "Socialism or, "Progressivism", "This is the politically correct name for "Communism".

Nemo- Would it be possible for you to share your answer/opinion on whether or not you can ski back behind the islands?

My answer/opinion is to go for it... The water is plenty high, just as it was "back in the day"

Hi Kid! I've always thought that the buoy placement was a ham handed act to appease some "On Golden Pond" types that live near the islands. There seems to be some ambiguity about the legality of going faster than slow no wake. I wouldn't mostly because I don't want to spend any time fighting a ticket. There's a town board meeting on August 14th that we are planning to attend. We'll see what can be done to remove the unsightly white and orange scourge from the South end of the lake.
