FEATHER DRYING

The local turkey vultures are still around drying their feathers! One of their favorite "hang-outs" is the south water tower. They like to perch on the tower and spread their wings to dry in the sun. The vultures usually migrate in the winter but warm weather has delayed their departure.

WARM WEATHER WORKERS

Continued warm weather has lengthened the work season for many local contractors. Pictured is Jerry Cleefman and helpers excavating for a new garage at the corner of Center Lake Road and Trout Drive.

FINALLY!

The home on Center Lake Road that was demolished a year and a half ago that was demolished by a falling tree is being rebuilt. A terrific wind storm downed trees down in different sections on Cordry and Sweetwater Lakes. This particular house has sat for year and a half covered by blue tarps. Permits for rebuilding were recently issued and work has begun.

HARD CORE DREDGING

SRS Dredgers are still here now working on some "hard to get to" areas on Sweetwater. "One if by Two if by sea" goes here! This particular cove on Hummingbird Drive couldn't be reached by water so they are doing dredging by land access with this "long armed" unit.

STILL HERE!

The Cordry Sweetwater Turkey Vultures are still here. They usually migrate south for the winter but haven't left yet. The used to roost at the bottom of Church Hill but for the last couple of years they group together in the trees on Halibut Drive and then perch on the south water tower to dry their wings.

BEACH HOUSE RENOVATION

Work has begun on the Sweetwater Beach shelter house. New restrooms are to be installed and be ready for next season. GP Construction was awarded the contract.
