    Regarding two recent events on the lake. I for one do not like to look out at our beautiful lake and see lines of buoys used for water skiing and boats speeding too close to the precious loons. I would ask that those
    sponsoring and participating in these events try to respect the interests of other property owners and the local wildlife.
