Just when I thought it was safe to go into the water, it is reported this morning that a young woman has died in a boating incident on Lake Lanier and police authorities have charged the man who was driving the boat at the time with BUI, Boating Under the Influence. This comes right on the heels of my last blog entry in which I reported the good news that the Georgia Department of Resources had indicated the Fourth of July Holiday was safer than expected in Georgia, with BUI’s on Georgia waters as being down this year from last year. My heart goes out to the family who has lost a loved one in this preventable incident.
