Douglas County was gearing up for a May 30 official reopening of Lone Star Lake for recreational use - the first open season in three years at the lake 14 miles southwest of Lawrence. The lake needed about four more feet of water to be up to par, said caretaker Bob Steele. The lake had been drained and the dam had been repaired after numerous problems due to leaks.
