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.


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.


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.

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.

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.


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.

Unseasonable warm temperatures have been enjoyed by all. Pontooners and even water skiers have enjoyed the 70's air temperatures and the 60's water temperatures.


Halloween night was mild and warm providing a fun evening for all trick or treators. The Cordry Sweetwater Fire Department opened up their facility for Halloween Partiers. The Church of the Lakes also provided Halloween fun for adults and children. Pictured is the Sweetwater Realty brokers at the Fire Station.
