“Provide a forum for Devil’s Lake Stakeholders”
This is a non-commercial blog, whose primary goal is to help create a increased sense of community and provide an open forum for discussion on issues related to Devil’s Lake in Lincoln City, Oregon. That said, we don’t apologize for expressing our opinion from time to time. This blog was originally created in support of our position related to Devil’s Lake. We will attempt to ensure that our editorial opinion is identifiable. If your position is counter to ours, that’s ok, we value your input as long as you follow our Rules for Posting and Commenting.
Our Editorial Policy
If you have been following the state of online discussions recently you would have seen a fair amount of traffic about anonymous blogging. Anonymity is imbedded in the internet, it is widespread in social networking and the blogosphere. Personal identification is not a perquisite to participation in our discussions. Anonymity can stimulate participation that may otherwise be stifled. We prefer you identify yourself but feel free to post under a user name if you wish, a valid email address is required for all posts. We have further defined our policy on the content of posts at Rules for Posting and Commenting.
This blog administrator was asked to step forward by several lake residents to create an on-line forum in support of Devils Lake. My name is Mitchell Moore, I own two homes on the lake near Sand Point Park, my primary residence is in the Portland area. We live on the lake full-time in the summer and visit generally every other weekend in the winter. I am President of a Cooperative Telephone Company and if you Google or email me you can learn other interesting facts about me that don’t have anything to do with Devil’s Lake.
Things about me that do relate to the lake include, that I am a avid boater, I regularly water ski, wake surf, and tow wake boarders, ski biscuits and an occasional stranded paddle boat. I also routinely swim, sail, kayak and watch everybody else do the same from my patio. I have a lovely family that joins me in all of these great activities. Bottom-line in the summer months there is not a day that goes by that our family is not in the water, blue-green algae and all. To give back to the lake, I have been very supportive of the Devil’s Lake Water Improvement District (DLWID). I have been a member of the DLWID’s Budget Committee and I sponsored and hosted of the DLWID’s website and host the DLWID’s board and staff email service for several years.
Now you know my name and a little about me. If you need to reach me please send an email to [email protected], there has been a request that I post my phone number, but that is against our rules. No phone numbers will be posted on the blog, but if you need to discuss something just email me your contact information and I will make every effort to contact you.

Our position on the performance of SolarBees®
Our position on the performance of SolarBees® is actually neutral. We don’t think that SolarBees® performance is the core issue for Devil’s Lake. The primary issue at Devil’s lake is the determination of need. Do we have a problem that negatively impacts the lake enough that needs SolarBees® as a solution? We have a page entitled “Solar Bees”, a title designed to attract visitors where we will continue to report on the current state of SolarBees®.
Our relationship with the SolarBees® manufacturer and their competitors
We have no affiliation with the SolarBees® manufacturer, we have been in contact with Joel Bleth President and extended an invitation to the company to post comments on the blog if they feel it will add to our understanding. The company can use comments on existing posts and their blog atwww.solarbeesworkgreat.com to post any new information it feels relevant. We hereby, declare our recognition that of SolarBees® is a registered trademark of SolarBee, Inc of Dickinson, ND and will endeavor to indicate its status in our posts. For the unintentional reference that does not contain the ® mark and for all references in comments or quotation from media sources that are not so mark we apply this blanket reconciliation of SolarBee, Inc’s right to the mark.
We are not associated with nor have we every made contact with a lake contractor involved in the business of chemical application, weed removal, or test and measurement of water quality. Devil’s Lake has no recent history of chemical treatment, therefore this debate should be free from the outside influences that have been suggested in other areas. We are not associated with nor have we every made contact with any limnologist.
