Governor Walker signed Senate Bill 69 in to law yesterday. This eliminates the need for a spotter if the boat is equipped with a wide angle mirror. The law becomes effective March 30.

Lake was still partially open Dec. 9th & finally froze over completely Sunday Dec. 10th. This was a strange fall - we had ice on & off the lake at least 4 or 5 times.
