Todd: Hi Jacqui, looks like it’s “balls to the wall” —like the old jet fighter saying.
Lake O is at 17 feet and rising…

We have lost business during periods of Toxic Blue Alga which is capable of causing ALS, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Where is the accountability for what has happened? Why are Corporations are allowed to poison our waters;
