September 26, 2008----Residents want lake improved
"A lake is the landscape's most
beautiful and expressive feature. It is earth's eye; looking into
which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature."
-- Henry David Thoreau
The Lizard Lake restoration effort has
lost one of its leading advocates for the lake.
My cousin and very good friend,
Lenny Schachtner of Belvidere, Illinois passed away Nov. 19, 2007 after a battle with cancer.
Lenny had been involved in restoring Lizard Lake since 1990. He was a member of the Lizard Lake restoration committee and contributed a huge amount of time and effort to see the lake dredged and restored. He continued to talk about the lake until the very end. He never gave up on his dream of seeing the lake dredged and restored to its once pristine beauty.
He will be greatly missed.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
