New Handrail at Lake Springfield Marina Boat Launch

New Handrail at Lake Springfield Marina Boat Launch

This will make it easier for folks of all abilities to get in and out of boats, especially at the lower lake levels we have now.
I would like to see another one on the other side, perhaps with a ladder built in too, such as this one. (Click here)

Three photos on this page include a view of the dock handrails.

It was a really windy day.

I love goldendoodles!
They're like a golden retriever with a perm.
(Does anyone remember when the Brady Bunch boys all got perms?
Goldendoodles make me think of that era.)

RIVERTON — Homeowners who like to think outside the box may want to head to the Riverton area Saturday to check out Steve and Sheila Sullivan's residence, a 47-foot diameter monolithic dome made of concrete.

The 6424 Barlow Road address is one of 33 domes across the country that are part of the Fall Dome Home Tour. People can tour the unusual house Saturday and learn about some of the advantages to living in a concrete dome.
