Lone Star water-skiing on tonight’s agenda

April 12, 2006


Douglas County commissioners tonight will consider expanding periods when water-skiing is allowed at Lone Star Lake.

In a letter to commissioners, a group of people have requested that skiing be allowed from noon to 8 p.m. daily. Currently skiing is allowed from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and other days as approved by commissioners between June 1 and Labor Day.

Proponents of the change say it would alleviate confusion about skiing times, among other concerns.

Commissioners also will discuss approval of a contract with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment for cleanup of illegal dump sites on the Black Jack Battlefield property east of Baldwin.

Lets see, water skiing restrictions, or illegal dumping. Which topic is more urgent? I wonder.....

Great just great!! Lone Star is one of the places that a boater can actually fish without having to dodge drunk people skiing and jet ski's, it's also one of the lakes in Kansas that aquatic vegitation can actually grow since there is a no wake rule. This will be a mistake.
