DTE Natural Gas. DTE representatives are in the neighborhood around the Douglas Lake Bar talking to residents.  They have information on the upfront costs and the connection cost.  These costs can be paid in a lump sum or financed through DTE and included in your monthly bill.  Of course, there is a carrying charge for this latter option.  If 70 residents sign up, DTE hopes to have natural gas service in by this fall.  Natural gas is roughly 1/2 the cost of propane and the cost differential will result in a payback of less than 5 years.  Residents can be helpful by passing the information on to their neighbors who are not at the lake now. 
The impacted areas are the south side of Douglas Lake in Cheboygan County. All residents on the following roads should be contacted:
Bryant Rd. and Douglas Lake Rd. are the main county roads. 
Minor roads off Bryant Rd are: Westwood Dr, Northwood Shores Dr, & Catsman Ct.
Minor Roads off Douglas Lake Rd are: Pells Island Dr, Pells Island View Ln, Bomber Ct, White Birch Dr, and Seabrook Ln.

That Crazy Loon - the foot waggle and preening 
Notice the foot waggle in the above photo. Adults and young do it. It may be a comfort move and it may have to do with temperature regulation. They stick their foot way out. The leg is not broken; it's part of the loon's behavior. Loons may roll when preening and pick at themselves.  It looks odd ... that crazy loon!
Sometimes it cannot be avoided, but please keep your distance from the loon families on the lake. 
Report loon issues or harassment to the Loon Ranger
