Summertime: Out on the water

With the July heat, it’s a great time to get out to the great lakes in Kansas. A couple of stories to keep in mind:

We’ve said it before, and we’ll probably say it again, but Milford Lake is one of the country’s best fisheries and recreational areas. This story by Michael Pearce in the Wichita Eagle talks about how these are the good old days for Milford.

If you’re taking kids out on the water, keep in mind that Kansas law now requires children under 12 to have a life jacket on while boating. Of course, you shouldn’t neet a law to tell you that. Getting killed on the water isn’t hard, and this story from the Pratt Tribune goes into detail as to how easy it’s been for people to get killed while trying to retrieve rubber rafts. 703 people died in boating mishaps last year, and 85% weren’t wearing life jackets.
