I work for the county. No way is this true. Wilson's creek is the Mecca of tourism here. I wish though because I love to fly fish. If they stop swimming, they will have to stop kayaking, etc. Wont happen. Bunch of Haitian Mexican Asian people can't swim isn't the rivers fault. The last ones were tourists who brought an inflatable $20 raft to a class 3 rapid. Ignorance is not the fault of the environment

20$ raft ? You don't work for the county or you would know that's not so. The last one just couldn't swim and the water was normal level . And he was human not all those countries you said! And the river will never close ! Maybe more tickets and educational materials will fix stupid littering drunks and help the ones that just don't know the water.

If you work for the county then I want my tax money back from paying your piss poor salary that is more than you deserve. Wilson's Creek is far from a "Mecca" of tourism albeit does pull its fair share its more of a destination of local drunk morons looking for a place to party all weekend. This is also where you get the most of the drownings and rescue operations, yes locals. Its kind of hard to swim when you are fat and out of shape from munching on food stamp goodies and not working, couple that with enough PBR, cheap weed, a "hey watch this" and its time to call 911. This is the very reason that any tourists that do visit dont make the same mistake twice. I guess they just dont like having their vehicles broken into by locals.

Lance Wilson owns Wilson creek. He will patrol it and save all drowning victims with his running and swimming ability. He will transport faster than our current sheriff because his corruption will not allow it. Vote Wilson for sheriff 2014 because he will patrol Wilson creek simply because he can.

I swear people are so scared of the unknown. You can't be protected from everything. Everything has its risks and everything has its benefits. Closing down a part of nature because a few people didn't recognize the risk they were putting themselves in is stupid. Anyone with common sense should know not to get in storm waters. And if you can't swim you shouldn't get in a river with currents and deep waters. If they do anything they should post signs with precautions such as warnings of storm waters after rain and risks of drowning.
