It seems that every other year is an "acorn year." This year must be the right one as the acorns are falling everywhere hitting decks, plopping in the water, etc. Be careful parking under oak trees or hickory trees. Hickory nuts can produce dents in hoods and tops of cars!

Josh Rooks @ 317-225-0447 is a magician with small motors! I have taken mowers, jet skis, and small outboards to him and he has worked wonders with all. He's local living here in the lakes. Give him a call.


I'm no marine biologist but believe it or not.....we have jellyfish. Over the years, every once in awhile, I've seen them here and other fresh water lakes. The are about the size of a quarter and clear with white markings. They are located at the buoy area between Jay Drive and Hummingbird Drive on Sweetwater Lake and swimming about 1 foot under the surface of the water.


Dredging on Sweetwater Lake coves continues. The dredger recently dredged/cleaned out the approach to the Sweetwater spillway. We hope this will cure some of the slow water evacuation during heavy rains.

According to Larry Niles of Eagle Drive who submitted this photo
, everyone left too early on Labor Day. An early evening shower cleared up and presented this rainbow over Sweetwater Beach.
