A number of new AIS are at Michigan’s doorstep, including two species of Asian carp and several harmful aquatic plants. The Great Lakes and Michigan’s inland waters draw millions of recreational users and tourists and are already dealing with more than 180 non-native aquatic species found in the region.

WEED ANALYSIS FOR 2015

The 2015 treatment maps for Evans Lake.  As you can see, the EWM is down significantly this year & there is a total of 5 acres and also a total of 5 acres of Curly-leaf Pondweed, both invasive. Which will be treated this year, the first treatment will be June 17th.

The federal flag code says the universal custom is to display the U.S. flag from sunrise to sunset on buildings and stationary flagstaffs in the open, but when a patriotic effect is desired the flag may be displayed 24-hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness. Also, the U.S. flag should not be displayed when the weather is inclement, except when an all-weather flag is displayed.


DISPLAYING THE FLAG:

On Same Staff 
U.S. flag at peak, above any other flag.

Grouped 
U.S. flag goes to its own right. Flags of other nations are flown at same height.

Marching 
U.S. flag to marchers right (observer’s left).

On Speaker’s Platform
When displayed with a speaker’s platform, it must be above and behind the speaker. If mounted on a staff it is on the speaker’s right.

Decoration
Never use the flag for decoration. Use bunting with the blue on top, then white, then red.

Salute
All persons present in uniform should render the military salute. Members of the armed forces and veterans who are present but not in uniform may render the military salute. All other persons present should face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over the heart, or if applicable, remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart.

Over a Street Union (stars) face north or east depending on the direction of the street.

Half Staff
On special days, the flag may be flown at half-staff. On Memorial Day it is flown at half-staff until noon and then raised.
Do not let the flag touch the ground.
Do not fly flag upside down unless there is an emergency.
Do not carry the flag flat, or carry things in it.
Do not use the flag as clothing.
Do not store the flag where it can get dirty.
Do not use it as a cover.
Do not fasten it or tie it back. Always allow it to fall free.
Do not draw on, or otherwise mark the flag.

FLAG DISPOSAL:
The flag should be folded in its customary manner.
2. It is important that the fire be fairly large and of sufficient intensity to ensure complete burning of the flag.
3. Place the flag on the fire.
4. The individual(s) can come to attention, salute the flag, recite the Pledge of Allegiance and have a brief period of silent reflection.
5. After the flag is completely consumed, the fire should then be safely extinguished and the ashes buried.
6. Please make sure you are conforming to local/state fire codes or ordinances.

Note: Please contact your local VFW Post if you’d like assistance or more information on proper flag disposal.

AQUATIC INVASIVE SPECIES AWARENESS WEEK

Michigan promotes Aquatic Invasive Species Awareness Week – June 28-July 4

Governor Rick Snyder has proclaimed June 28-July 4 as Aquatic Invasive Species Awareness Week in an effort to raise awareness about the need for citizens to take action to stop new Asian carp swimming underwater introductions and to control the spread of Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS).

AIS are non-native organisms that either intentionally or unintentionally become established outside their normal range and harm lakes, rivers, wetlands and the Great Lakes. Everyone enjoying Michigan’s waters has a role to play in protecting the state’s waters from AIS.

AIS Awareness Week will include the second annual AIS Landing Blitz, an outreach event for boaters. The Michigan departments of Environmental Quality, Natural Resources and Agriculture and Rural Development will partner with citizen volunteers during the event to assist boaters in preventing the spread of these harmful species and complying with current AIS-related laws. The AIS Landing Blitz will take place at more than 45 boat landings around the state. Boaters, anglers and others enjoying Michigan’s waters can take action by following these simple steps:

You DO NOT want to see these in your lake.

If you are one of the lucky ones who are able to rent a home, cottage or cabin from one of our landowners we ask that you follow all rules & guidelines when fishing. We take great pride in keeping our private all sports lake in the best shape possible.
