Members in attendance were Mike Krehbiel, Flint Hibler, James Funk, Troy Lesan, Mike Booth and Susan Zalenski. Shad Mort led the Pledge of Allegiance. Troy Lesan led in prayer. Approval of Minutes Mike Krehbiel moved to approve the minutes of the Feb. 11, 2018, board meeting. Susan Zalenski seconded; motion carried. Volunteer of the Month Phil Stockard opened a discussion about doing away with the current volunteer of the month award and replacing it with a volunteer/employee recognition when needed. Troy Lesan moved to replace the volunteer of the month with a volunteer/employee recognition. Mike Krehbiel seconded; motion carried. Committee Reports Fire Department: Tony Gronniger presented a fire department policy and procedures manual along with an application to join the fire department to the board of directors. Tony challenged the board to give this information to someone that might be interested in joining the fire department as a recruitment tool. Tony also informed the board the training room is near completion. There is a little trim work to finish. The fire department was called to mutual aid with a fire in Gallatin this past week. Mike Booth presented a program from the Red Cross to partner with local fire departments to give away and install fire detectors in personal residences at Lake Viking. The Red Cross will furnish three detectors per home and the fire department must install them. You will need to contact a member of the fire department or the association office and get your name on the list. The detectors will be available around July 1. Susan Zalenski moved to accept this program with the Red Cross. James Funk seconded; motion carried. Handbook Committee: James Funk moved to add Mary Miller as a member of the handbook committee. Flint Hibler seconded; motion carried. Finance Committee: Troy Lesan reported on the financials for April. Income is up somewhat from last year at this time and expenses are running about the same. Jimmy McKinley, from Cameron Financial Services attended the May Finance Committee meeting. Jimmy will be conducting a monthly reconciliation of all the lake financial accounts, per a motion from the Board at a past meeting. Jimmy also explained to the committee how he prepares our tax return, which brought up the question of the lake being a non-profit organization and should we be paying income tax. Glenn Miller, Mike Krehbiel and Troy Lesan will be contacting our tax attorney about filing for nonprofit status. Strategic Committee: Susan Zalenski gave a progress report on the clubhouse renovation. Don and Carolyn Leeper are getting bids for some of the work that will be done. Mary Hibler has raised approximately $3,000 for this project through a challenge she posted on facebook to contractors and mem-

bers. There will also be a raffle along with the 4th of July activities to add to the fund raising efforts. In the fall, the Incorporation Committee will present their research on incorporating the lake. Activities Committee: Mary Hibler discussed the latest and upcoming activities planned at the lake. The Cinco de Mayo was held on May 5, with over 100 people attending. They raised $128 for the clubhouse renovation, so Mary put out a challenge on facebook as was reported in the strategic planning report. Over $3,000 has been raised so far from this challenge. The Chillicothe Locker is donating a hog to be raffled off during the 4th of July activities. The first open air market was held on May 12 with four vendors setting up. All the vendors were very pleased with the outcome of the market. Saturday, June 9 will be the next open air market and also will be the 2nd Annual Poker Run. The first restaurant night will be Saturday, June 16 and will have “Smokin� Gringos BBQ. The 4th of July activities will be held on Saturday, June 30, starting with the bazaar in the clubhouse from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the fireworks at dark. The activities committee has also purchased new swings for the playground behind the clubhouse and has plans to replace the ones at the campground and beach 2. Building Committee: Flint Hibler reported there were 19 new permits with one house in April. Flint moved to add Jim Miller to the building committee. Troy Lesan seconded; motion carried. Flint also moved to allow straw socks as an alternative for silt control in place of silt fencing. Mike Booth seconded; motion carried. Campground Committee: Mary Hibler commented on the first holiday weekend coming up, which is Memorial Day weekend. Mary reported the electrical upgrades have been completed. Len Zalenski would like the finance committee to evaluate the increased electric usage from these upgrades. Mary also commented that two dumpsters are not enough for the holiday weekend in the campground. Shad Mort told Mary there would be a roll off brought in for the weekend. Mary also asked Shad about screen doors for the shower Continued on Page 4

Ticks can carry many diseases Tick season is here and milder winters and warm spring temperatures could result in a higher numbers of ticks and tick-borne disease. National numbers recently released May 1 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that cases of diseases transmitted by ticks doubled from 2004 – 2016. In addition, new disease-causing agents that can be transmitted by ticks have been discovered in the past few years. Missouri is home to large numbers of ticks, which means that tickborne diseases can pose a risk to persons who work or play outdoors. “As with the flu, we stated in October it looked like it might be a difficult year with high rates of flu and potentially severe strains and encouraged everyone to get a flu shot. Unfortunately, we did experience a very tough flu season,” said Dr.

Randall Williams, DHSS Director. “Based on last week’s CDC report, we are again reminding every one of the potential of tick-borne illness in Missouri and encouraging you to take simple precautions to lower your risk of tick bites and tick-borne illness.” At least six different types of tick-borne diseases have been reported in Missouri residents, including Rocky Mountain spotted fever, ehrlichiosis, tularemia, Lyme or Lyme-like disease, and disease caused by Heartland and Bourbon viruses. The majority of these cases occur in May, June and July. Symptoms of these diseases typically begin within two weeks of a bite by an infected tick and for most people include a sudden fever, body aches and headache. “As I often told patients, if you are

houses. Lake Committee: Mike Krehbiel reported the lakeside spring inspections have been completed. The biggest issue is lot numbers on docks. Mike is concerned about the unauthorized traffic on the airstrip. He would like to have some kind of signage stating, cars, trucks, ATVs, etc. are not allowed on the airstrip. Mike also reported he had been talking to Weatherby Lake about their zebra mussel initiative. Mike would like to meet with them and see if they are doing anything that we are not and should be. Cemetery Committee: Shad Mort reported one burial in April. Infraction Committee: James Funk reported the infraction committee had three tickets on the docket this month. Two fines were assessed and one ticket was postponed to next month Dredge Committee: Shawn Hepinstall discussed the $90,000 budget for the dredge this year and where that money would be spent once the dredge is ready to go. This winter there was some preventative maintenance done on the dredge, but it is ready to put back together. The plan for this year is to move into 3 tubes cove first and to the Pilot and Pirate area next. The ponds in these areas have been cleaned out. Shawn commented that 10 years ago Snyder Engineering made a recommendation to work on stream bank stabilization as a preventative method to slow down the silt from coming into the lake. It is estimated that 75 – 80 percent of the stabilization has been done. Dredging this year should begin late June or early July. We have received estimates for cleaning out the south end structure. They range from $370,000 to $850,000, so will probably look at cleaning more of it out ourselves. Lake Manager’s Report Dredging: We are working on three more areas for the stream bank stabilizations. As Shawn mentioned, we will be going to 3 tubes cove with the dredge, but we have to figure out where to put all the docks in that cove while we are dredging. Campground: The electrical upgrade is complete. Ramp gate: The gate seems to be working better. We did have one issue with it last week, but it is working now. Campground lagoons: The lagoons have been cleaned out recently and DNR will be here sometime around the June 1 to inspect them. These lagoons

will require permits through DNR at a cost of $600 per year. We also need signs posted at the lagoons to say KEEP OUT. Campground: Shad Mort reported we have 22 members in the campgrounds that have not paid their 2018 dues and assessments. We do have a deadline process in place to have the campers removed if not paid. Financials: Flint Hibler moved to approve the financials. Mike Krehbiel seconded and motion carried. Guest Time There was no guest time scheduled. Board Action 1. Building fee increases: At the board meeting last month, the finance committee made the following recommendation to increase building permit fees. The board wanted time to think about these increases. There was discussion about the reasoning for raising these fees and if it was because of the wear and tear on the roads. There were several comments that we should earmark these fees for road work. Shad Mort explained if we did that we could not use that money for anything else but road work. Troy Lesan moved to increase the building fees as proposed. Susan Zalenski seconded. There was a tie vote of three – yes and three – no votes. President Phil Stockard broke the tie with a no vote, so the motion was defeated. Mike Booth suggested sending it back to the finance committee for review and possible changes.

2. Fine schedule: A list of first offense fines were presented to the board. The safety department recommended letting first time offenders pay their fines without having to attend an infraction committee meeting. They may still attend the infraction committee meeting if they feel they need to appeal their ticket. James Funk moved to accept the proposal to allow first time offenders to pay a fine according to the schedule presented. Mike Krehbiel seconded; motion carried.

Extra caution needed around boat docks Colonel Sandra Karsten, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, encourages boat dock owners to take the necessary precautions to make their dock safe from stray electrical current. Tingling and numbness in the extremities while swimming in the water has been a common statement made by individuals who survived incidents involving electrical current near docks. Swimming away from any dock suspected to be charged with electricity is the safest course of action. Exiting the water at the shoreline, a safe distance from the electrically charged dock, or swimming to a nearby dock, would be the alternative. It should be noted, if there are metal dock cables securing the electrically charged dock to the shoreline, the metal cables may be charged with electricity and should be avoided also. There are specific regulations on many of Missouri’s lakes. Dock owners should adhere to the regulations set forth by the dock permitting authority. “Warm weather has arrived in Missouri and many people will begin enjoying time on our state’s lakes and rivers,” said Colonel Karsten. “While it is convenient to have electricity available on a boat dock, it is important to be responsible. Make sure you have taken the necessary precautions for your dock, so the area is safe for your family and friends to enjoy.” Life jackets are always a good choice when on or near a dock. All swimmers are encouraged to use a life jacket, especially young children and inexperienced swimmers. Whether you’re swimming near a dock or fishing from one, chose to Wear It!

Are you responsible with your boat wake?

M

issouri waterways have become increasingly busy over the past few decades. Along with the increased boat traffic, the size of motorboats continues to grow, particularly on our larger lakes. Where there are boats, there are boat wakes. Please join the Missouri State Highway Patrol in promoting wake courtesy to minimize the danger to others using our waterways, damage to docks, and erosion to our shorelines. Operating a motorboat at “plowing” speed is necessary at times, but should not be the norm. Please make note of these reminders so you are part of the solution and not part of the problem: Operate your boat at idle speed, or when you are safely able to do so, operate on plane. Do not continuously plow unless absolutely necessary. Boats that cause excessive wakes should always operate in the middle of the lake to allow their boat wake time and distance to lose energy. Plowing within cove locations is discouraged, unless safety or water sport activities require you to do so. Water sport activities requiring excessive boat wakes should be reserved for areas of our lakes where the danger to boaters, damage to docks, or significant shoreline erosion is limited. Cruiser and houseboat owners and operators are a significant and important part of our boating communities, but these boat owners and operators require heightened awareness of the wake they are causing. Remember to be courteous. If you were in a small boat attempting to navigate your boat wake, or you owned a dock that has to survive your boat wake, would you be operating in the same manner? Treat other boaters and property owners as you would want to be treated. Causing harm to another person or their property with an excessive boat wake may subject you to enforcement action or civil liability. The great state of Missouri has many beautiful waterways, all of which allow for a wide variety of boating activities. Responsible and courteous boaters help make our waterways safe and enjoyable for everyone’s use. The above is reprinted, with permission, from the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Water Patrol Division website. As you can see, the state of Missouri, like Lake Viking, is fighting to prevent damage to docks and shorelines from excessive boat wakes. Although not all applies to LV (houseboats?), courtesy and awareness of your boat wake will help the Association avoid making unnecessary and restrictive boating rules. Help us protect our members’ docks and shorelines. Lake Viking Board of Directors Lake Viking Safety Department SHP-272 3/2016

Call *55 for an emergency. www.mshp.dps.mo.gov

JUST A REMINDER SPEED CREATING EXCESSIVE WAKE: Trolling speed will be used when approaching within seventy-five (75) feet of boat docks, marina, and coves marked with Association buoys, or other areas marked with permanent or temporary Association buoys.

Attention Dock Owners!! Boat dock wiring must be protected by a ground fault interrupter (GFI). If your dock wiring is not GFI protected an electric accident can occur. You can purchase a GFI electrical tester at any hardware store to see if you are already protected or contact a qualified electrician to install a GFI to protect your dock.

Alex visited Shirley and me in 2014, fell in love with the lake, and couldn’t wait * Driveway Entrance Installation to come back. This time, he brought Josie along . . . and she fell in love with Lake Viking too. On this trip, Alex was particularly impressed with the new Lake Viking Marine building, and he and Josie immediately bought sweaters and jackets sporting the Lake Viking Marine logo. Alex and Josie are from the village of Bergen op Zoom in the very south of Holland close to Belgium, but don’t let the provincial sound of the village deceive you. Alex, having worked for International Oil companies on pipelines and oil rigs, is a world traveler and has spent time on the job at his home office in Brussels, in Norway, Scotland, Peru, Columbia, China, Indonesia, and Houston, TX. Both he and Josie speak flawless English. Now that Alex is retired, he and Josie have had more time for travel: Indonesia, Paris, Spain, St. Martin, and Aruba to name a few. As a result, I’m posting an all-points alert. If any Association members are traveling anywhere in the world and happen to see these two, wearing their Lake Viking Marine gear, say “hi” to the Dutch Chapter of the Lake Viking Fan Club.

Colonel Sandra K. Karsten, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, would like to make the public aware that National Safe Boating Week was May 19-25, 2018. National Safe Boating Week is purposefully scheduled just prior to Memorial Day weekend, which many people consider the kickoff to the boating season. Boaters are encouraged to arrange for a thorough inspection of their boat prior to taking it out on the water this boating season. Weather, time, and other elements may affect the readiness of your boat. The Patrol’s marine operations troopers are available to inspect the required equipment on your boat, at your request, to make sure you’re in compliance with state law. Additional information on local equipment inspection stations may be obtained from your local troop headquarters. In addition to making sure your boat equipment is in compliance with state law, make sure you are familiar with laws regarding boat operation and traditional navigational rules. Remember: Missouri law requires everyone born after January 1, 1984, who operates a vessel on Missouri lakes to possess an approved boating safety identification card and photo ID. In 2017, there were 169 boating accidents reported in Missouri, with 90 injuries, and 11 fatalities. When boaters understand and obey the law, and vessels are in good operating order, everyone’s experience becomes safer. Personal flotation devices for everyone on board is a must! Children under seven years old are required to wear a personal flotation device in a boat, but you are never too old to wear a life jacket! Life jackets are now lighter, less obtrusive, and more comfortable than ever before. The new inflatable life jackets allow mobility and flexibility for activities like boating, fishing, or paddling, and are much cooler in the warmer weather. There are many different varieties of inflatable jackets ranging from those that inflate instantly when submerged in the water to those that are manually inflated. Although not required by law, children playing along the shoreline or on a dock should wear a life jacket. A drowning can occur quickly, with little or no sign the victim is struggling. Life jackets save lives! It is important for each boat operator to know the capabilities of their boat. Reducing your speed in unfamiliar areas and being aware of unusual water conditions respective to the size and type of boat you operate are just a couple of environmental considerations. “Keep in mind that extended time in the sun and the constant motion of the water affects every vessel operator,” said Colonel Karsten. “For your safety and that of the other boaters, recognize the dangers of boater fatigue. Stay alert while enjoying Missouri’s lakes and rivers. Additionally, if you combine alcohol with boater fatigue your reaction time and thought process will be much slower. Please enjoy our state’s beautiful waterways, but designate a sober captain if you choose to consume alcohol.” Other safe boating tips to be aware of include: 1) Be a defensive boat operator ... creating distance from other boats equals more reaction time. 2) Adjust your speed for the conditions ... if visibility is poor, or the water is rough, slow down! 3) Turn off the boat while passengers are entering/exiting the water. 4) If you will be out on the water after dark, check your navigation lights before you leave the dock or ramp. 5) Each boat operator is responsible for doing whatever they can to avoid an accident. Don’t expect other boats to move out of your way. 6) Be courteous with your wake. Boaters are reminded to contact the Missouri State Highway Patrol by dialing *55 on a cellular phone if they need assistance or observe another boater operating a vessel in an unsafe manner. Watercraft operators must consider the effect their actions have on others: Share the waterway and use common sense, good judgment, and courtesy to ensure the safety of all. Life jackets save lives. Wear It!!

A “Landmark” Tour By Troy Lesan Over the years, the Lake Viking Homemakers Club has had some very interesting program agendas for their monthly meetings which can be attributed to Program Coordinator Jean Caldwell. As a lifelong resident, Jean literally knows everyone in Daviess County and is a walking encyclopedia of Daviess County history. In May, Jean lined up a very informative group tour of Landmark Manufacturing. Landmark has been around the Gallatin area for a while. It was started in 1953 by Wayne Critten in a small rock masonry house at the factory’s present site. Then the company was known as Longwood, and when Wayne Critten died from an accident, the business was continued by his sons. The Longwood was an innovative furnace that allowed the owner to heat with both gas and firewood out of the same unit. This proved to be popular in rural areas that had an abundance of timber and after increasing success and a growing customer base locally, the company expanded and went national in 1974. In 1978 the company again expanded its operation and became a metal fabrication sub-contractor. In 1981 the factory was expanded by 30,000 square feet. Finally, in 1986, the company sold the Longwood brand and became Landmark. Members of the Lake Viking Homemakers Club, Jean Caldwell, Mary AschSince that time there have been several more expansions. The plant now brenner, Shirley Leakey and Marian Larason, pose in front of a “Good One” has 650,000 square feet under its roof! If you think that sounds big you are smoker grill, one of the many products manufactured at Landmark. right. That’s an area of eleven acres! When the Homemakers group went on their walking tour of the plant, guided by Association Member Greg Houghton, he told them that they might not want to walk the entire floor area. After touring about half the floor space, the ladies agreed. Greg is an employee of Landmark’s The Good One Smoker & Grill division. With the many different companies for which Landmark manufacturers components, the Good One comprises approximately 1% of their business. Landmark manufactures and fabricates parts and components for around 30 companies including Kubota, John Deere, Case, Knapheide (truck bodies), Thermo-King, LMV (Ford parts), Challenge (Tesla parts), Modene (radiators), and, oh yes, the U.S Government. As the Homemakers Club found out, the factory is huge and features highly sophisticated equipment including 85 welding machines, spot-welders, MIG welders, plasma welders, robotic welders, laser cutters, an electrostatic paint system, and over thirty mechanical presses including a huge 2000-ton unit that takes three men to operate. Needless to say, when production is going full bore, the noise is deafening, and most of the work force of 150 employees are required to wear hearing protection. In a way, Landmark flies under the radar as a result of being situated in a rural area of the county, east of Gallatin. But as the members of the Lake Viking Homemakers will testify, it is a tremendous opThis display wall features some of the 1,000 differ- eration responsible for the custom metal fabrication of over 1,000 different parts and components.

Cinco de Mayo is getting to be quite a tradition at Lake Viking. On May 5, the Activities Committee once again put on a successful celebration at the clubhouse with over 100 in attendance.

Chapter Seven Written by Carolyn Mueller Illustrated by Christopher Grant

im the Wonder Dog Jcontinued to amaze all who met him. I’m proud to say that my father was once invited before a joint session of the Missouri General Assembly in Jefferson City. The legislators wanted to see Jim do his stuff! They devised a test that they were sure would undermine Sam’s training. They asked Jim a question in Morse Code! They knew that Sam did not understand Morse Code, and so could not communicate to his dog exactly how to perform the task. The legislators asked Jim to point out “a gentleman whom the ladies spoke of as tall and handsome.” Jim went straight to Morris Osborn, a man well known to be the best looking fellow in town! Jim passed the legislators’ test with flying colors. Of course, throughout all of these activities Jim continued to be a perfect hunting dog and companion for the Van Arsdale family. Sam loved Jim so much that he thought it might be a good idea for the Wonder Dog to have a few pups of his own, hoping perhaps one would inherit Jim’s legendary powers. And what do you know, that’s how I was born! My mother was another purebred Llewellin Setter, just like my father, and she gave birth to a litter of two — me and my brother, whose name is Son.

Son and I went to live at Ira Irvine’s kennels, just as our father did. Jim and Sam would visit us often. We would romp and play, since we were just young ones back then and full of energy. I remember my father was so calm and patient as Son and I hopped all over him, tugging on his ears and his feathery tail. Ira and Sam hoped that Son and I would grow up to be just as smart as our father. Though we are good faithful dogs and excellent hunters, if I do say so myself, neither Son nor I could figure out how to communicate with humans the way our father could. We’re good dogs, of course, but we’re not Wonder Dogs.

as Jim was crossing a field, his leg got tangled in a fence! The muscle was strained, and he limped on it for the rest of the afternoon. As Jim and Sam wrapped up their hunting trip, Jim’s leg began to stiffen in the cool air. By that evening, Jim was sick and unable to get out of bed. The Van Arsdales called the veterinarian, who told them that Jim had rheumatism in his foreleg. Jim had to go to the veterinary hospital in Kansas City. When Jim finally recovered, he could no longer hunt. The illness had taken its toll. It was hard for Jim to retire from hunting, as that is what we Llewellin Setters are born to do, but he continued to travel with the Van Arsdale family. Between travels Jim stayed at the Ruff Hotel and gave performances to those who had to see to believe in the Wonder Dog. In this way, he lived until the ripe old age of 12 years old.

It was a cool, windy March day in 1937 when Sam decided to take Jim As Son and I grew up, our father to the lake to go fishing. Sam parked began to age. One frosty November his car and opened the door for Jim. morning, Sam took Jim out to hunt. My father hopped out and ran toward Jim was perfect, as usual, flushing quail from their coveys and responding the lake. Suddenly, Jim collapsed! Sam rushed to his side, scooped him to Sam’s every command. It was a wonderful day. After lunch though, up and took him to the veterinary

hospital as fast as he could. But it was too late. As Sam laid his friend on the exam table, he could see the dog’s dark spots and feathery tail, the same soft ears and wet nose — but something was missing from Jim’s unusually bright eyes. There was no longer a light in them. He was gone. On March 18, 1937, my father, Jim the Wonder Dog, passed away. Son and I did what we could to comfort the Van Arsdales. We tried to fill the hole in their hearts left by the loss of their faithful companion. We were good dogs, but we were not their beloved Jim. Jim’s unique intelligence and steady companionship could never be replicated. He was a once-in-alifetime dog. To the Van Arsdales, Jim’s death felt like losing a member of their family. Nothing could ever replace their Wonder Dog.

County Library one of three in nation to receive Bookapalooza The Association for Library Services to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), has awarded the 2018 Bookapalooza Program to three libraries, including the Daviess County Library, Gallatin. The other two libraries were Chilton/Clanton Public Library, Clanton, AL.; and Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach, FL. ALSC is the world’s largest organization dedicated to the support and enhancement of library service to children. ALSC consists of a network of more than 4,000 children and youth librarians, literature experts, publishers and educational faculty. Each library will receive around 600 pounds of materials, including books, DVDs and audio books. The award team shipped a total of 40 large boxes to the Daviess County Library which have arrived by the truckload at the library over the last two weeks. These are materials that were received at the ALSC office from publishers for selection committees to evaluate for awards and notables con-

sideration. They are all 2017 copyright, brand new and in mint condition. To make room for the next year’s publications, the Bookapalooza award was created to infuse three library communities each year with new materials for children from birth through age 14. The Daviess County Library will catalog some of the materials for adding to the regular collection and other materials will be distributed directly to children all around Daviess County. As written in the grant proposal, the library plans to work with local school and community partners, such as the Daviess County Health Department, to put the books directly into the hands of area children. Library staff are in awe of the quality and variety of materials received so far. “We are a rural county and transportation, along with getting a library card, can actually be a large barrier for many young children and families, even though the library’s services are free,” said Library Director Allison Spidle. “While we will end up cataloging and keeping approximately

500 of the total 2,000 or so Bookapalooza materials, the rest will be put on our free lending reading racks around the county and distributed directly to children throughout the summer via book giveaway events.” Director Spidle added that the library has already coordinated with the mayors of Coffey and Jameson, as well as the Gallatin Summer School Program, to arrange for dates and times for book give-away events in May and June. The county jail has been contacted about putting a take-a-book box there for children visiting parents. “We’re continuing to brainstorm though, as we just keep getting more books!” Director Spidle said.” Chief Cataloger Amy McMahon added, “Not everyone can make it to the library to participate in the Summer Reading Program. Parents work, access to a vehicle may be nonexistent, money for gas is tight, and distractions are everywhere. Keeping kids progressing and not regressing in their reading over the summer months is one of our key aims each year. The grant was written to eliminate barriers and put quality, new books directly into the hands of local children. As a staff we are loving going through the boxes. It is like Christmas over and over again each time we see the post office truck pull up.”

Rules

for Committees and Their Members The Board of Directors may appoint Special Committees as they feel necessary. All members must be active members current in dues, assessments and other fees. The board of directors will appoint the following standing committees: finance, building, cemetery, infraction, lake, nominating, handbook, strategic, and campground. ~ All committees shall have a minimum of three active members and include at least one board member. ~ No committee or subcommittee may be formed without board approval. ~ All recommendations from committees shall be presented to the board prior to any actions taken by said committees. ~ No action may be taken by any committee member that has not been approved by the chairperson, board contact and the board. ~ New committee members shall be presented to the board for approval.

Ticks www.LakeVikingMo.com experiencing flu-like symptoms in the summer when it is not flu season, you should talk with your doctor about the possibility of tickborne illness,” continued Dr. Williams. Another possible sign of tick-borne disease is fever and a pus-filled wound that appears at the site of a tick bite, or a spreading rash that follows a tick bite or exposure to tick habitat. Not all ticks transmit these infections, and not all tick bites lead to illness. The majority of Missouri’s tick-borne illnesses can be successfully treated if they are caught early, but sometimes they are deadly. As DHSS stated in April, everyone can safely enjoy the outdoors, whether at home or traveling, by using some simple precautions to avoid tick bites. DHSS recommends the following precautions to prevent tick bites: • Use an insect repellent with a minimum of 20% DEET, picaridin, or IR3535 on exposed skin and clothing. Choose a product that lasts several hours whenever you spend time outdoors. DEET products should not be used on infants under two months of age. • When possible, wear protective clothing (light colored, long sleeved shirts and pants) when outdoors to keep ticks off skin. • Avoid tick infested areas including brushy areas, tall grasses, wood piles and leaf litter. When hiking, stay near the center of trails to avoid ticks. • Reduce ticks around your home by keeping lawns mowed short, shrubs and trees trimmed, and remove leaf litter, wood piles, fallen branches, trash and debris from yards. • People with pets should talk with their veterinarian about use of tick prevention treatments. You should regularly check your pet for ticks. • Check for ticks while outdoors and again after returning from the outdoors. If possible you should change clothes and shower soon after spending time outdoors. If you find an attached tick, remove it promptly. The longer it is attached the greater the risk of infection. To remove ticks: • Using tweezers, grasp tick near its mouth and as close to your skin as possible. • Pull tick firmly,

straight out, away from skin. Do not jerk or twist the tick. • Do NOT use alcohol, matches, liquid soap or petroleum jelly to remove a tick. • Wash your hands and the bite site with soap and water after the tick is removed. Apply an antiseptic to the bite site. If symptoms occur following a tick bite, or even after exposure to a tick habitat, be sure to tell your health care provider.
