1 Cheers to
the organizers of Lake Race 2013. We had our doubts, but closing the dam seemed to boost visitors’ interest in spending time along the Strip.

2 Cheers to
the Lake Bloomers Garden Club for sponsoring the new  Blue Star Memorial Marker in Laurie

3 Cheers to
area resident Dave Dunklee for the success of his music project at Fort Wood.

1 Jeers to
the teen who jumped overboard without warning and wasted dive team time and resources while she was at home. We understand getting away from a confrontation, but diving into the lake at night could have meant a dive right into harm’s way.

2 Jeers to
people who didn’t get out and enjoy one of the many events held at the Lake of the Ozarks this weekend. You missed a good time.
