orphan park In North By CHARLES W WALK North Iowa News Director BRITT When is a park not a park When il is Eagle Lake Park northeast of Britt In that case you have 2175 acres of woodland beaches and picnic area but no one look ing after its maintenance The Eagle Lake problem started last fall when the Iowa Conservation Commission an nounced it wanted to drop the area from the park rolls and make it and the adjacent 1000acre lake a game refuge This announcement was met by loud opposition from those in the area First the picnickers resented the closing of a popular picnic site Second hunters op posed turning one of the areas top duck hunting spots into a game refuge The solution appeared simple Let the state continue to have control of the prairietype marsh constituting the lake and let the Hancock County Conservation Board take over operation of the park Negotiations started in lhat direction and appeared to be progressing smoothly until someone noticed that picnic tables benches and other picnic equipment all had been removed from the park It seems the State Conserva tion Commission had decided that since it wasnt going to have charge of the park any longer this equipment could be better used elsewhere This didnt attract too much atten tion until someone mentioned lhat all the equipment the slate had taken didnt belong lo Ihe slate A couple of tables and benches had been provided by organiza tions from Britt The missing picnic tables also gave the county conservation hoard a second thought If the state wasnt going to provide the picnic equipment the county board would have to This pros pect didnt sound too attractive to the board which operates on a strict budget Sherry Fisher DCS Moincs chairman of the state conserva tion commission says it isnt a question of whether the com mission wants lo return the picnic equipment but a ques tion if it legally can do so Ive got a letter written now asking Ihe atlorney general for a ruling on whether we can provide
