Because there is currently an excess does not mean it needs to be spent. It needs to be saved, or used on critical need projects. This state constantly wastes away any excess it gets, then screams for more taxes or rate increases the second things get tight. I for one would like to see the excess returned to the customers, or held in reserve for lean periods. Stocking the lake so that people can go fish them right back out doesn't seem like a good use of my money.

What doesn't kill me does NOT make me stronger. It makes me anxious, bitchy, and vulnerable...but nobody wants to see that embroidered on a pillow...Lisa Kogan...thx LXL...sorry i stole it from you! Ok, maybe I'm not sorry :-P

Having just watched a hatchery info video, i am wondering if ground water used to raise fish would be sent back in to lake?

If they have excess, can they share with the fire department so that we can keep the Sugarloaf station open?

I know it’s not possible, but sure would work well for all

So it looks like Deluxe Amenities is winning. MWD, any revelations on this and other polls/public input you have been getting?

Of course deluxe is "winning". No surprise. Heaven forbid that common sense prevail. Yes, let's hear the spin...

This poll was pretty evenly split. Over on FaceBook the poll was a bit more tilted toward the less fancy option. At the workshop on Friday there was plenty of good input from the public. I think the BBMWD will start working on getting a better idea on pricing as well as what some of the various amenities will be most popular and who should pay for them. The notion of a gift shop or fully staffed store like at the Discovery Center will need a lot of thought. Volunteer workers still will need to be supervised so adding those positions to staffing is no small thing to consider. The BBMWD is very committed to building a facility which will keep fish in the lake and providing a visitor experience which will be affordable and sustainable in the long haul. It might be considered to do things in stages.

Wow. We've just got tornados, hail, heavy rain and floods. Kind of fun to all get in the Big Guy's Mancave and watch the weather channel. Just 60 miles from us the state capital Jefferson City had a really bad tornado and killed 3 people. They are facing another one as I write.

Very strange driving up the mountain last night in heavy snow. At the end of May. Thank heavens it wasn't sticking.

Nevermind! me being gullible again.

Idyllwild got 5 inches, but in BB, no snow for most. :9(

Daffodils were great this year, just gone about a week ago. Planted them in the fall, divided among all kinds of other plants. I think they help keep the gophers away (well, I hope).

I stand corrected. Apparently tulips are mildly toxic.

Tulips aren't toxic. Daffodils are. I plant them whenever the companies ship them to me. I think it's Oct.

May 23 : 10:29am
IDKnothin for our zone, usually in early to mid October

May 23 : 10:25am
I was thinking more in line with the toxic tulip.

(I just discovered Joker is a bulb - hah, I didn’t know)

May 23 : 10:22am
Back to the bulb planting time line ...
In the fall - when would you stick those jokers in the ground?
Anyone ??
