Chairman's Chat

Hello all, Well, first of all, Happy New Year 2008. This year should be significantly less frantic than 2007 owing to the fact that we are now done (mostly) with the water and road projects. I know that it was a very trying time for all of us and I sincerely appreciate the patience that you have all shown in getting these projects behind us. Thank you all... With the roads being plowed in Swains for the first time that I am aware of and the availability of year round water, I hope that many of you will be able to use your cabins for a longer period every year. Teresa and I have been up twice so far this winter in weather that we never would have considered going up in before. There has so far been about 7 ­ 8 feet of snow delivered by Mother Nature and without the great work that the road crews are doing in Swains in keeping the roads open, we never would have made it, or even tried (see picture below and on page 1). It really is a different mountain in the winter. The snow truly changes the experience. We are off to a great start in fighting the drought so lets keep hoping for a wet winter and spring. Maybe we can get in four fish plants this year. In your dues notice this year you will be getting a series of questions asking for your opinions concerning the Labor Day activities and the application of Magnesium Chloride to the roads as a way to combat our dust problems. Please take the time to answer these few questions as your input is of great assistance to the Board in determining what is the will of the members concerning these matters. As always, looking forward to seeing you on the mountain. Alan

In an effort to spotlight Swains Creek residents business efforts we continue this column spotlighting our very own entrepreneurs! With that in mind we are highlighting a business that has been around a couple years, but that we have never shown to our owners. That business is Cedar Mountain Home Furnishings, located in Duck Creek Village next to the True Value Hardware Store. The business is owned by Cindy Allen and Rudy Delapaz, both Swains Creek full time residents. After a few years as a realtor, Cindy Allen noticed a need for unique furnishings near the location she was selling mountain get-a-way cabins and homes. Rudy Delapaz, a mountain home builder, also noticed this need. Many customers traveled far or paid huge shipping costs to get the wonderful pieces Cindy and Rudy now sell.

More Tidbits

***During road construction, contractors can use hydrants. Any other use is not allowed. Any unauthorized usage of fire hydrants should be reported to the KCWCD or contact Jeff Hoyt at 435-6822228. ***Law to be in effect approximately November of 2007 which will allow non-residents property owners a vote on issues related to Cedar Mountain. ***Mr. Dale Flannigan (of the Forestry Dept ) is encouraging people to take the wood from the piles of wood cut last summer for their own personal use, but a wood cutting permit is required prior to taking the wood from the piles. Also, Swains Creek is scheduled for burn pile burning this year once 4-6" of snow is on the ground. Some of this burning was accomplished in early December.
