The lagoon status and the future of the lagoon slips. The lagoon, as it is called near the north end of the lake, is not really a lagoon at all. It’s merely the water held back by the dam wall and gates that goes from the bridge over Wrigley Drive to the gates and dam wall itself. There are several issues about the lagoon. It isn’t just the boat slip piers, the size of the boats, and the buildup of weeds and debris. Water levels have dropped six inches, or maybe slightly more and this is affecting the lagoon in a big way. Bigger boats are hitting the finger piers, pushing them into the adjacent slips. When slip renter’s boats are not in the slips it leaves them empty for random boaters to utilize their spots, to get some lunch or whatever is on their agenda.

Humans love horror, fantasy, and the mystery of the unknown and with that the Halloween season has already begun. It is that love of fear (not based on real terror) that drives us to dig deeper into the myths, theories, and legends of the unknown. It’s the fascination that leads us in search of ghosts and abandoned houses and towns. We want to know if there is a beyond, and we want to know how fearless we can be from what might be imagined coming from it. Monsters, ghosts, creatures, and the rest of the paranormal world; we want to know it deeply. We want to feel our heartbeat quicken as we wander dark forests at night or visit haunted attractions the same way our hearts beat on a roller coaster or during skydiving, facing our fears head on. We love the adrenaline rush and feeling of being scared in the moment. It is this curiosity and fear that has led us to where a mysterious beast has allegedly been sighted in our own communities.
