ICE OFF celebration swim

Does anybody know these wild people who jumped into the lake to celebrate ICE OFF? It's an annual tradition, and this year they were asking for cash: $5 to go in, $20 to swim to the raft and back, and $100 to catch the beaver that was swimming by the fallen tree.

A Gathering of Stumps?

Ken Strand and I were gazing over the "gathering" of stumps in the Look-out Road corner of their lot. I asked, "what would you call that...a school of stumps, a pride of stumps, a herd of stumps"? Ken suggested a "constellation" of stumps. I like it. What do you think?
I think as Lac le Jeune pine-beetle-affected-folks, we need to come up with a good name. Any other suggestions?

Trees & Development

Last I've heard, the logging on the ski hill and behind us may happen this year but I thought this would be a good area for anyone to post on things they've heard on:  logging, the new development and also the rumour of a pub/restaurant opening to the residents?
