Dawson’s Creek Ranch is going to do their Barrel Racing Extraveganza on the 10th, 11th, and 12th of July. Ron Geman is spearheading the effort to add a first class summer cowboy festival to the wonderful things available during Lake Geneva summertimes. Ron is a terrific horseman, organizer, and a class act as a cowboy and a man. You will see more about this coming event in future Geneva Shore Reports as the July date approaches.
A guy named Sol works away near the base of the Riviera Pier in a small shop where he sells glass ornaments, characters and then makes a ton putting temporary tattoos on young people. Seems just great. The kids are happy, Sol is happy and the parents of the kids get about fifteen minutes where their adolescent lovely must stand in one place and shut up. Uncommon good will all the way around. Until one mom takes a photo of grisled Sol in natty beret having to touch young ladies fairly intimately, intimately enough to incur her ire. What then? Other competing shop owners complain the police come and scratch their heads and then everything sort of falls back to a certain ‘normality.’ Is Sol a great guy? You bet. Is Sol your average human, or even bear? No chance. Interesting times we all live in.
Sarah Hill, the most intelligent, vibrant alderperson serving on the Lake Geneva City Council (and yes, Ms. Chappell is right up there too): “Mayor Jim Connors has sold the city out in appointing former city administrator Dennis Jordon as the police and fire commission.” Tough talk? You bet. She proves her worth to the citizenry of Lake Geneva as Conners continues to fade into a flimsy façade of Gumby-like behavior.
Ms. Chappel, Gelting and even the Kupsic agreed with Sarah without saying those exact words. The wonderful police chief of Lake Geneva should perceive a threatening smoking gun being aimed at him and his department when they see one. The chief is an ex-Marine and so are a good number of his people. The Geneva Shore Report is going with Sarah, Chappel, Gelting and Kupsic on this one.
The battle is joined.
