FISH STORY

The local Anglers Club held a fishing tournament today on both Cordry and Sweetwater Lakes. The winning fisherman was local contractor Rodney Gunter who brought in a 6.2 lb large mouth bass and a 3 lb small mouth bass. Congratulations to Rodney and applause to the Anglers Club for sponsoring the event.

WATER METER TRANSMITTERS

Several of us have wondered about the holes that have been made in the water meter covers. As part of the upgrading of the water utility, small transmitters are being installed in every water meter pit. So....the hole will be filled with a plastic appearing unit. This will eliminate the time consuming job of physically reading each meter each month. This will free up man hours for other area jobs.

SCUBA DIVERS

As part of updating their credentials, area sheriffs divisions often visit Sweetwater Lake for Scuba Diving. The Johnson County Sheriff's Department was out this week diving off of the boat ramp area.

SOGGY!

I've lost track of how many inches of rain we've had this past week on top of the previous week's rain. As of this writing,(Friday, May 5th, 9:00 AM) Sweetwater is up to the bottoms of the local docks. Even if it stopped raining today, the run-off from the watershed will keep the lake high for days.
