MIKE RIPPE is a Friends of Lake Mary Ronan board member, and he says there are 45 who belong to FLMR, “and the number is growing. The MDMR motto is “Even a Lake Needs Friends,” according to Rippe.

“It was never truer than it is now. The lake is in crisis,” Rippe says. “We have numbers with science backgrounds who can give you specifics on why our lake is dying. The issues are numerous and varied; logging, past development with plans for more, septic issues, Fish & Game verified illegal planting of predatory fish (Northern Pike), ravenous Cormorants (birds), high level of nitrates and the list goes on.”
