Please vote for Cliff and Barb to keep our community great. OR vote for the liars to ruin our great community. Vote for the Do-ers NOT the WATCHERS.

I just don't get all the anger. What is that about, really? I sure don't want to have to deal with that anytime I need to go to a board meeting. Let's keep the sane, calm, reasonable board members we already have.

Sorry to say they won. Now we can just call Lake St. Louis "The Nursing Home Community." These people will let those who don't pay their CA dues vote on issues. They will work to get rid of all the fun stuff that makes LSL great...Ski Club, Marathon, Sailing, etc.

Forget any bands at the Clubhouse that play any music after 1950.

Break out the Margaritas for the Pontooners! They rule everything now!!!!

OMG- I didn't know who won the election! Great- the existing board has been broken. Maybe real progress can happen now.

Just curious, what kind of progress? It seems to me that this group wants to roll back the clock to the days when the facilities were in disrepair, the CA didn't have any activities, the lakes were being polluted, and LSL was becoming a joke. This sounds a lot like the stuff coming out of the White House. We'll "progress" you right into the poor house.

When were these days of disrepair? When was the lack of activities the norm? The lake is STILL polluted, the small lake is on the watch list for the most polluted in the state.

I''m not arguing that you are wrong, but I've lived here since the late 80s and don't remember a time that fits your description.

JPmorgone, you and I have lived here about the same amount of time, so you may recall some of these things:
-The CA board wanted to renovate the old clubhouse, but were told by the engineers that the infrastructure was so bad that it would be cheaper to tear it down and replace it.
-The golf course was in very bad shape, with the greens completely burnt-out, at one time. Lately it has looked and played great.
-Windjammer was nothing but a gravel parking lot that looked like a junk yard, with scores of boats that hadn't seen the water in years being stored there. Many were not even registered. Now it is clean, has a ramp (did not have before) and seems to me to be the most popular marina we have for events of all kinds.
-The main marina was not much better. Additional docks were added, as well as storage facilities and a building for water patrol and other activities.
-The CA did not have concerts, lounge entertainment, season-kick-off or season-ending parties like they do now. They really didn't have any kind of organized events other than those the clubs ran. Look at all of the events the CA has today.
-The docks were all made of wood and were falling apart. They are much better now.
-The little lake was just as silt-filled as the big lake. This changed, in part, because of the silt containment ponds that were built up-stream. I don't know if your comment about it being on a watch list is accurate, but I do know that the fecal counts were much higher back in the 90's than they are now.
-The swimming pools and tennis courts were in very bad shape. The pools were replaced, and the courts are much better than they were.
-Most of the playgrounds were in sorry shape, and have since been replaced.

Those are just some of the examples I can think of. What I've seen over more than two decades is growth and improvements to the CA facilities, while growing the CA's reserves. So my question remains, what kind of progress is LiSaL looking forward to?

Ok- I do remember some of the issues- wood docks and golf course not as good as now. I do not remember what you imply were abandoned boats at the marina.
As for the replacement of the CA- not really an accurate comment. They replaced with a building far more expensive than to reconstruct a similar building.

And yes, the CA does have more entertainment, but I find it strange that nearly every concert event outdoors, the PD gets complaints from neighbors once it gets to be a bit late.

As for the water, Lake Saint Louise is on the list for 2010 for bacterial contamination. Lake Saint Louis is on the list for excessive mercury in the water. Mercury has been found in the tissue of the tested fish. Not sure why mercury is so high, but I don't think that would be an issue any CA Board could control, anyway.

What LisAL is looking for, I don't know.

I'm not surprised you recall the issues at Windjammer, because it wasn't being used for more more than storage. No ramp, a poor example of a pavilion, and it looked like a junk yard for old boats.

It is certainly true that the new clubhouse is bigger and nicer than the old one, but I do remember the board looking at just expanding the existing building and being told it would cost more than tearing it down and starting from scratch. I guess the question would be, did we need more space. I suppose the answer is different for every CA member. I like the new building.

As for the lakes, I would be very interested to see the numbers for both lakes. The mercury issue is especially troubling. If you have links to the sources, please pass them along. Thanks.

I don't know the specific link right now, I can track it down at home. But it is part of the 2010 303d report from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
