Another new variety of ducks appeared today. The previous guests were a red-headed variety that were identified as coming from the East Coast due to bad weather. The newest guests are black with white markings for the males and subdued markings for the females. My duck expert tells me that they are Hooded Mergansers. Also heard Sand Hill Cranes migrating overhead today. Spring can't be far away.

Thank goodness for the professional attitude of the members of the security commission! The agenda of their monthly meeting held last night was to "refine and simplify" the draft of the new boating and fishing rules. Many changes were made to the satisfaction of all who attended. One example of change was to not register paddle boards but they did suggest that paddleboards ought to have lot numbers. Another example was to change "spotter" requirements from age 16 to "competent person." Another suggested change was to require only 1 anchor instead of 2. I think boaters, fisher persons, swimmers, and all will be pleased with the suggested changes. Do be aware that there will be public exposure to the new rule book prior to the CSCD Board acceptance of the new rule book. Thank you security commission!

Bids for 2015 dredging for Cordry Lake have been opened and the Ecology Commission is going to recommend that the low bid from SRS Dredging be accepted at the next CSCD Meeting. The low bid of $147,120 came from the same company that did dredging on both Sweetwater and Cordry a couple of years ago. Most residents gave "high marks" to this company and their practices. In other business, new board member Jerry Engle was elected to be chair person of the Ecology Commission pending CSCD Board approval.

With the snow and recent cold weather, the hungry deer can be quite imaginative! I looked down at my shoreline and saw 6 deer standing on the ice eating the ivy and ground cover from my bank. They later walked across the lake on the ice to my neighbor to see what they had to offer!
