We recently commented about traffic slowing down for people riding bicycles and people walking on the roads.

We also want to remind folks who are walking on the roads and bicycle riders to watch for motorists.

Bicycle riders need to share the road and be courteous with motorists.

There are times when bicycle riders do not move over to allow cars to pass and traffic is backed up.

It is also dangerous for cars to try and pass bicycle riders when they do not move over.

We understand that the ice cream store at Cayman is going to be taken down Saturday.

The fire company is going to burn it as part of a training exercise.

It is sad to see the ice cream shack go.

We hope it is replaced with a new and improved store.

It is an asset to the campground and community.

We have learned that the TLPOA board of directors approved the purchase of golf cart replacement batteries at a cost of approximately $10,300.

We heard that there was a problem with an employee at the golf course who did not maintain the batteries correctly through the winter resulting in damaged batteries and the need to buy new ones.

Shouldn’t OMNI pay for the batteries, they supervise the employees?

At the TLPOA meeting this week, directors voted to authorize the general manager to negotiate with Verizon Wireless regarding placement of a cell tower in Treasure Lake.

It was stated that this is preliminary negotiation only.

The location for the proposed cell tower is near the stump dump.

We have heard that the new cell tower would improve service in the area.

Another plus is that the TLPOA would receive money from Verizon for permitting the cell tower to be placed here.

We have learned that the TLPOA Board of Directors received a request from an individual who wants to pan for gold in Treasure Lake streams.

At a recent meeting it was reported that the property control committee recommended against permitting this action.

There is a potential of individuals going on private property owners’ land and other problems.

The board of directors voted against permitting panning for gold at their meeting this week.

Stop signs are located throughout Treasure Lake.

It is pretty clear what the sign means. “Stop!”

This applies to all moving vehicles including Aqua trucks and Treasure Lake maintenance vehicles.

We have observed vehicles going through the stop sign at the Ski Lodge intersection without slowing down.

Maybe security should start citing people who run stop signs.

Aqua and Treasure Lake should make sure their employees obey the traffic signs.

We have learned that the subject of streaming the TLPOA meetings through the TLPOA website was discussed at this week’s meeting.

We believe it is a good idea, however there is the concern that the audio may not be of good quality.

There are still problems with hearing people speak at the meetings when you are in the audience, the problem could be magnified when transmitted through the website.

The TLPOA is researching how this can be done and the cost.

We have learned that the MS Walk will be held Sunday in Treasure Lake.

The focus point is the Lakeview Lodge.

This is huge event and draws hundreds of people from the area.

Is this a secret?

We have not heard or seen anything about this event.

The new marketing director and the recreation/events director were at the last TLPOA meeting and yet nothing was announced.

We should be proud that Treasure Lake is the site for this and we can do better getting events like this publicized.

Another opportunity missed!

We have learned that the topic of the back gate was brought up at the  TLPOA meeting this week.

General manger Shirley Elmore explained why the back gate was not operating and said they were working on it.

When questioned about having a security guard man the back gate she said the security department officer in charge was determining man hours and cost.

We believe it should not cost extra man hour wages if the security department would assign the security officer catching speeders to man the back gate.

It is plain to see they have priority problems if the thinking is that it is more important to catch property oners who are speeding at 40 mph than people who are trespassing on Treasure Lake property!

We have learned that there are four candidates in the TLPOA Board of Directors election.
