"Bull" Thompson are hosting an open house in honor of his 90th birthday. The celebration will be [--I_J-etter-Wo-~e- -Ei ............ ;,, held on Saturday, August 3, ! I I L .............................................. There are many issues in the Lake Mary and Fort Ad- am's communities that need to be addressed. Our roads (Lake Mary Road and Jackson Point) are the main issue at the pres- ent time but before I address any of the negative problems at hand, I would like to talk about the positive points. Lake Mary and the Mississippi River are truly assets to the county. However, due to ne- glect over the years, I believe they are not being utilized to benefit our county. Both communities could be very beneficial to the county if changes were made to encour- age visitors and camp owners to keep recreational tax dol- lars in Wilkinson County. The roads were in horrible shape this past week but lots of peo- ple made their way through the muddy mess to enjoy the holiday. Imagine if we had good roads and ~lverts that would make the lake or river easily accessible! The county did begin work on Lake Mary Road on July 5, for that I am truly THANKFUL The point is after every high water the roads are in deplorable condi- tion. The county immediately has to start patchhlg the roads and begin the process all over again. I live and work on Imch Leven so we have been beat- ing in and out since April. I understand that this is my choice and that there are only a handful of people who actual- ly live on the water. However, I would like for everyone to be able to enjoy the beauty and peace that I find here everyday without having to boat in or have a four wheel drive.

In the winter, you will see hunters preparing for a weekend adventure of hunting wild game. All supporting our local economy. Lake Mary and Fort Adams have many wonderful assets to share with locals and visitors. We receive lots of phone calls from people checking out the road situation wanting to re- turn to their camps or homes but unfortunately many times they can not. These people pay property taxes bringing revenue to the county. Lots of visitors come to Mrs. Mrytis' store seeking di- rections to Clark Creek. The bridge going to Mile Hill road is so dilapidated that many people turn around in fear of crossing it. Clark Creek is also an-asset to our community, if you're not afraid to cross the bridge to get to it. This sounds like all I am doing is complaining, but I am not. I am grateful for such a beautiful place to live even though it requires that we boat in supplies and life is a little more difficult when you are surrounded by wa- ter. I spend a lot of time on our back porch painting the sunset over Lake Mary try- ing to capture the beauty and tranquility that surrounds me here. I otten think of the many natural resources that are not being utilized here. I wish everyone could just drive on in and watch the sunset over the water and enjoy the natural beauty found here in our county. Sincerely, /s/Rhonda M.
