   As safe boating week concludes, and Memorial Day approaches, remember
   that safe boating is not just a week, but a year round challenge. The
   National Weather Service, the United States coast guard, the safe
   boating council, and local law enforcement, urge you to always boat
   smart, boat safe, and boat sober. Always wear your life jacket.

   Being aware of Lake conditions, and using good judgment this weekend,
   are a prime example. Current water temperatures on the broad Lake,
   range in the lower to mid 40S. Exposure to these water temperatures
   for more than a few minutes, can quickly lead to hypothermia, a
   dangerous, and potentially life threatening condition.
