If You’re Lucky Enough to Live By The Lake, You’re Lucky Enough!
We’re very lucky, fortunate and grateful that a logical compromise was arrived at regarding the minimum flow out of Oakdale Dam. Moving forward to minimum flow has been lowered to 315 cubic feet a second from 500. While it doesn’t sound like much this is huge. Big thanks to Gabrielle and SFLECC as well as Senator Mike Braun. Their tireless work paid off. Lower water levels will be a rare occurrence moving forward.
We are lucky for all our thriving wildlife. White Pelicans? Seriously? There are so many beautiful creatures here. The Eagles are so numerous we take them for granted. It wasn’t that long ago I remember seeing my first one.
Absolutely the most important thing we have to be thankful for are the friends and family we are lucky enough to share together Lake Freeman, Lake Shafer and the Tippecanoe River. We are all so privileged to have our “Lake Family”. You know what I’m talking about.
With all the troubles in the world and our country, the “Lake Life” is our happy place.

In his promise to constituents, he called the Lake Freeman situation a “Catastrophe”. He also vowed to make sure the lowering and its’ affects never happens again. A big thank you to Congressman Baird!
