Two Alerts for Long Lake
1. We have been told by several Long Lake residents that swimmer's itch is a problem right now, specifically in the more shallow areas. The following link has swimmer's itch information from Minnesota's DNR: http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/swimming/swimmersitch.html
2. Unfortunately, we also have to report that there have been some gas thefts on the lake. Gas has been siphoned from docked boats. This has happened twice in the Crystal Bay area and we are unsure whether or not the problem is more widespread.
