Sounds like some lawsuits in the making to me, given the close proximity to Glen Daniel and all. Any way this thread can be moved to that forum where it belongs? There'd be a ton jumping on the class action gravy train within a few minutes.

I am a resident of Glen Daniel and I go to the lake frequently and also have a lot of my friends that go there with their family and havent heard of anything going on @ the lake. Dont know what is being said about a lawsuit or whatever but it doesnt concern me. AS far as the stupid junk that goes on down there yeah im sure it happened, before are stupid EVERYWHERE and I was @ Little Beaver a few years back with my son and witnessed 2 teeangers out on a picnic table and I totally went off. There is a time and place for everything and in the middle of the day @ a park isnt the time or place.

a person can get sick anywhere ,not just because the visited a lake, normally little children get sick from other children's germs. We've been at Lake Stephens this year and it was a very nice family place,lots of children playing and laughing in the water, nothing bad,but anywhere a person goes theres a chance that someone may be acting bad or being out of line or whatever,thats everywhere.Heck today at the Beckley Walmart teenagers was at a vechicle, cusing ,hitting and kicking a car and saying some really bad things and children everywhere you looked.

ironic that this post comes up in August when my friends son was in the hospital dying. He was admitted on Sunday August 15th after swimming at Lake Stephens. Final diagnosis was MRSA in the bloodstream. The kid had no cuts or anything. Hospital officials say he may have swallowed it from the lake. He was very, very ill and was on life support. He made it out ok but tok a long time to recover. HIs organs shut down and everything.
come on

You are full of it if you think the county bought the dryhill- prosperity community center the board of directors gave it to the county. Every thing except there money which is not very much now somebody has Been dipping into the community centers money. Bruce James probaly I know for a fact he is a big crook.

For someone who is so smart, you really need to get your facts straight because it is Lake Stephens. But since you are so smart and you know everything (by reading most of your previous posts) maybe they need to correct their website, and their signs, and anything else that is ever written about Lake Stephens.

Above is a link to their website, just to prove that apparently you are not as smart as what you think you are!

I talked to a woman a few months ago that works for the health department. She warned me not to go there, she said they have found 2 types of MRSA in that water.

We refer to Lake Stephens as Myrtle Beach for the people of Route 3. No wonder people are getting MRSA there. The scum of Southern West Virginia hang out there.

If you can afford to have a camper out there.. i doubt you are the scum of Southern WV. Do you know how much it costs per month to have a camper there? It isn't cheap. It's the same cost as some peoples homes, yet I stay 4 months out of the year. Not to mention my RV costs more than your house most likely.

You make your comment as if Myrtle Beach is some kind of wonderful destination. I guess you frequent there? Point made.
