I donít know what the answer is, but something has to be done soon. Itís just going to get worse and worse.

The sandbars at Braun & Smalls are fairly self regulating in that the number of boats allowed is dictated by the No Rafting Zone. Yes the rules get bent somewhat, but that is a small price to pay given the alternative unintended consequence. The lake is full when it comes to boats (have you seen the price of slips? YIKES!) and the State/Towns show no restraint when it comes to allowing the marinas build more valet storage facilities. Until the economy takes a dive, this is the new reality.

The only way to eliminate ignorant behavior is through education. You can't fix stupid.
