GG’s Notes
Leaving Fawnskin was refreshing. However we ended up in an area with the same type of environment and weather! Even so, an estimated 55,000 population made the area a bit more urban. Flagstaff’s growing pains include the same influx phenomena we are experiencing in the valley with second homeowners and inflated real estate values.

On the other hand, I really loved the choices available for food, entertainment and shopping (even though I hate shopping).

Unfortunately, on the way back I received the sad news that my beloved parrot had died. It has been hard being at home where I miss her constant chortling at me and other antics.

In town, CalTrans installed a new guard rail. This is good but we lose our VTV (vehicle television) and the opportunity to bet on which speeding vehicle will be the next to plunge over the side. Too bad, good entertainment is sometimes scarce around here.

Don’t forget to check the online edition for the latest scuttlebutt.

Fawnskin Fleet
Captain John invited me down to the Fawnskin Marina (aka Captain John’s Fawn Harbor) to check out the new fleet of boats.

Since the lake is full you won’t want to miss taking advantage of the local’s special so you can enjoy yourself out on the water.

Fishing, kayaking, canoeing, bird watching, and just immersing yourself in this beautiful environment is something you won’t want to miss.

Anyway, the new fleet is comprised of new boats of all types. Canoes will be arriving before the holiday.

Non-boaters drop on by for a good game of horseshoes down by the lake. Mike and John are always up for a game if the crowds allow it.

Fawnskin Business News

Fawnskin Market
The Fawnskin Market is still closed for renovations. The latest changes include the installation of new counters and new insulation. I can’t find Mark’s number but took a look this am. The lighting still needs to be finished and it looks like they won’t be open in time for the holiday.

Creekside Café
For those of you not reading the online edition, the Creekside Café will not be opening after all. Advisor’s cautions and the inability to come to terms on the lease killed the project. Another party is interested in the location but concerns remain and this location may not open again anytime soon.

Moose Lodge
Moose Lodge 2085 reports that the deadline for the MS Walk fundraising has been extended to June 20, 2006. The amount brought in so far is in excess of $67, 000 and still climbing.

Don’t miss the fabulous Memorial Day BBQ. The feast usually starts sometime around 4pm. If you fail to arrive early you might miss out on the fabulous food.

Sadly, I got the news that “Pappy” passed away. You might remember him for his good humor and generous smile. Pappy and Donna served this community as Mr. & Mrs. Claus until 2005 when health issues prevented them from continuing. Many blessings to Donna and the family.

Bad Behavior
Gosh, it must be the weather bringing out the bad behavior!

Many of you remember that a “party in the park” was scheduled to take place this weekend. Sources revealed that a certain person unofficially aligned herself with the event.

There are already several years of bad blood between one of the park owners and the unofficial promoter and the result of the independent actions catalyzed a cancellation.

Practical or petty? I know many other locals who have been miffed by the same individual’s actions. Let me know what you think. Too bad it looked like it was going to be a good time.

Guilty by Association
Many of you know about the destructive actions that took place on the west side of town.

Recently a witness revealed at least one additional person was onsite during the move off of the property. One teen from town found out that if you are witness to a crime, or are an accomplice by association during the act, you are held liable. All I have to say to the parties involved is that you are lucky the property owner is not coming after you.

Bad Dogs or Bad Owners?
When it comes to the issue of a bad dog or bad owner it always is the owner’s fault. Some neglect to spay or neuter their animals, fail to scoop their poop, allow them to bark incessantly, or flagrantly disregard the leash law.

Recently a local dog owner went after a new Fawnskin resident. The reason? The walker complained to the owner about his loose dogs. Turned out the ambler was in law enforcement and soon the sheriff and animal control arrived to chat with the pet owner.

Down the street newly established residents said their dog is scared to death by the same muttley crew.

Long time residents tend to know who the dogs are and that most are friendly. Most of the party pups are more bark than bite. However, there is a reason we have leash laws, barking dog ordinances, and laws requiring the clean up of animal waste.

In addition to being a bad neighbor, the failure to clean up after your pet in the woods or on the shoreline pollutes the lake and can expose native wildlife to disease and parasites. In fact, the problem is so big that the county is now publishing handouts on the issue. So, “Stoop to scoop.”

Okay, that is the latest poop…so to speak…until next issue.
