In Memoriam: Mike Cox

Our thoughts and prayers are with Veronica Cox who lost her husband Mike this passed week. Mike and Veronica are former residents who were very involved in the community.

Lt. Col. Michael David Cox U.S.A.F. Ret.

FORT WORTH–Lt.Col. Michael David Cox U.S.A.F. Ret., was called home on September 4, 2017, after a brave fight against a sudden illness.

Interment: Mike will be laid to rest among the other heroes of our nation in the Arlington National Cemetery.

Mike was born in the Bronx, NY, on May 3, 1940. He was the son of Maurice and Mildred Cox. He grew up on Long Island NY, and graduated from St. Bonaventure University in Alleghany NY. The University’s motto “Becoming Extraordinary “would describe him throughout his life. Upon graduation Mike entered the service of his nation, receiving a commission in the U.S.A.F. He served several tours of duty in Vietnam, and was awarded many decorations, among which was the Bronze Star and The Presidential Unit Citation. After a distinguished military career, Mike worked for McConnell Douglas, and Boeing, before retiring completely in the mid 90’s. Mike was a storehouse of colorful stories and reminiscences of his time in the military. He was generous and always quick to offer any assistance he could provide. He enjoyed traveling in his later years, especially to the reunions of his old squadrons. He was active in the Military Officers Association of America, and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. He joined his second family in Ohio, and was very highly regarded in his community. As he grew older, he and his wife would travel to Myrtle Beach, SC for the winter. As usual, Mike became a highly regarded member of the retirement community there as well. Mike recently relocated to Texas, and was adapting well, when he became ill.

Survivors: Son, David and daughter, Kaycee of whom he was very proud, always speaking of their achievements; brothers; Maurice, Charlie, Dennis, and Steve; wife Veronica; step daughters, Felicia, Cristina, and Doris Amelia; grandchildren; Vanessa, Tiffany, and Nathan; and many friends.

Note on Advisory Signs

For those who visit our beaches, you will notice that the Algal Warning Signs are posted. These warning signs were posted due to readings taken on 8/21/17 which indicated algal toxin levels exceeded the EPA’s Public Health Advisory limit.

While the most recent tests indicated the algal toxin levels were well below the Elevated Advisory Limit, 2 readings under state guidelines are needed before the signs will be taken down.

Microcystin Algal Toxin   E.coli Bacteria
West Beach 1 East Beach 2   West Beach 1 East Beach 2
Results below early warning level Results above early warning level   Results below early warning level Results below early warning level

The Algal Toxin Levels from the Beach 2 slightly exceeded the EPA’s Public Health Advisory limit. However it is well below the Elevated Advisory Limit which would recommend no contact. All data can be found on the LMC section of the RRA website.

Current Conditions for Week of 8/28/2017: The current results for the testing program for the lake are summarized above. A green cell indicates that results are below the USEPA or OhioEPA criteria for recreational water. A yellow cell indicates that values have exceeded the limit and appropriate caution is advised. Your Lake Management Committee’s (LMC) water testing program for harmful algal blooms (Microcystin) monitors our two beach areas monthly during the hot, summer months and advises that all test results received so far have been well below any level of concern or alarm. In addition, the LMC is also having tests performed for the presence of E.coli bacteria weekly at the two beaches as is done in most public beaches. Should any of these test results approach the level of caution, the Board of Directors can request that caution signs be posted at the affected beaches for your safety. Of course, common sense tells us not to swim in any waters that contain unusual amounts of algae. Please enjoy our beautiful lake and have a safe summer.

Hands UP, Don’t Run Me Over, I’m In The Water!

Lake Safety Committee
By: Bruce C. Bower

The title of this article is to draw your attention to what you should preach to your family and guests when they are in the water after being towed. As soon possible, they should put their hands up, over their heads, to draw attention of their presence to other boaters. If they have just fallen out of their skis, hold the ski or skis up vertically. Wave their arms so show where they are, not necessarily for you, but to any other boaters coming your way. One human head bobbing in the water is difficult to see, especially when there is a choppy surface. AND, get that flag up ASAP!

Too many people are still not using the flag correctly. I still see boats with what looks as though there is a suction cup sticking the flag to the windshield. Simple rule, PUT THE FLAG UP WHEN SOMEONE IS IN THE WATER. This doesn’t mean that there are kids in the water, but they are ON A TUBE. It doesn’t mean that someone is up ON a wakeboard. Wait till they fall off into the lake, then put up the flag.

The Boat Patrol asked me to inform everyone to mark or paint your lot number on all your water toys, floats, skis, paddle boards, paddles, tubes, trampolines, and anything else that you want back if it gets lost. The Patrol finds things floating in the lake and wants a way to get the equipment back to the owners.

Another topic that the Boat Patrol brought up was that the people letting youngsters use their jetskis are NOT following State laws of age of operation. It appears that there are a bunch of un-informed people that think that if they are 21 or over, they can drive anything on water. What do we have to do to tell you that if you were born on or after Jan 1, 1982 you need a STATE LICENSE to operate a water craft? And you must be 16 with a license to drive a jetski. It’s stated in the rules you are given with your boat tags. Then you give your signature that you have read and will follow the rules. How about it? I’m going to request that ODNR come to our lake and specifically check licenses on ALL jet drivers. No wonder we see absurd stunts from the jet people.
I’m beginning to think that maybe we should make it imperative that boat owners take mandatory 2 hour course every 3 or 4 years before getting a tag. Or how about taking a 10 question test before you get a tag, get 2 wrong, no tag? There has to be something done differently until we can get uniformed police to pass out tickets for not following the laws and rules. I’ll be bringing up this FORCED education to the Board soon.

I can’t close without mentioning the 75 foot no-wake zone, try and picture 4 lengths of your boat from the shoreline, this will be close enough. There must some sort of magnetic force that lures people in to around 40 feet or so!

As always, call me with your thoughts or if you want to holler back at 216.906.2301 cell

Think SAFETY
