Local couple in between houses would like camp on lake for the summer. We can be gone a portion of stay to give owners camp time. Willing to handle property management issues that might arise, as well as do minor repairs or grounds keeping. We will leave your camp better than we found it.
Old world charm and location matters most to us. TVs and modern appliances not so much.

Subject: Cyanobacteria bloom Date: 10/02/2019 Author: Dorothea PenarLast Reply Date: Last Reply By:
We had another small bloom of cyanobacteria in the Narrows cove area. It was of a limited size, but lasted most of the day last Friday. Given that the water is significantly colder and many of the camps are not occupied, I think the heavy rains we had last Wednesday and Thursday maybe a significant factor in causing the bloom.
Please be aware that storm water runoff brings a lot of nutrients to the pond on all slopes, so avoid fertilizing lawns, avoid clearing the natural vegetation along the shore, and keep the upland trees as much as possible.

Fellow Joes Ponders, I now have cleared out land ready for a bunch of boats to be stored over winter! I am winterizing and shrink wrapping any boats out there. Let me know if anyone wants me to take their boats out and put back in for the spring! Call me at 802-535-6735.

You can contact the state police. The road must be kept open for emergency vehicles.

Is there any thing that can be done about rentals parking so many vehicles on road, it’s barely passable. 268 Sandy Beach has 14 cars parked on both sides of road and I can barely squeeze through. Rents say it’s a public road and you can squeeze thru! Really?

Subject: Statement From JPA President Hebert Date: 07/15/2019 Author: FredLast Reply Date: Last Reply By:
Statement issued today by President Hebert:

"I want to thank everyone for their concerns and comments in the last 10 days regarding boater safety issues on the pond. Hopefully through this open dialog we will all become more conscious of the appropriate rules, regulations, and more respectful of our neighbors and the environment.
Unfortunately we continue to hear of ongoing issues. Most recently there have been reports of jet skis operating close to shore in the boat access area. If you have a concern the Vermont State Police is the agency that deals with boating safety complaints. The local number is 748-3111. I spoke with them today and was informed that obtaining information such as boat type, color or especially a registration number would greatly facilitate their investigation. Lets all continue to be a bit more considerate and try to minimize this situation.

Joe Hebert
President, JPA

Subject: Fireworks watching Date: 06/23/2019 Author: Brian SullivanLast Reply Date: Last Reply By: Fred
I am trying to figure out the best place to watch the fireworks this year.

We know the village of W Danville (the beach area) is not a good place to watch from. Probably on the water in a boat is best. The fireworks are at the northeast end of the pond, so probably one of those roads off Rte 15, like Davison Hill Road, if you can find a parking space, would be good. I think you had asked this question some time ago, and thank you for asking it again.

Subject: Runaway Dock Date: 06/10/2019 Author: Last Reply Date: Last Reply By:
Earlier this morning (Monday) there was an upside-down section of a dock floating in the middle pond. Boaters be on the lookout; if anyone can snag it and hitch it on shore that would be good - let us know where it is so the owner can retrieve it. JPWebsite folks.

so i see on the last update that the ice pulled away from the shore about 6 inches does this mean that the contest is over?

No, the ice out is over when the block sinks through the ice and stops the clock.

The update about the ice pulling away from shore was just meant as a tiny indication of progress.

Hi Terry,

Thank you for your question. No the web cam is not available this year. This is due to personal circumstances of some ice out committee members.
