A local resident found a zebra mussel attached to a coffee can in the northeast corner of Lake L’Homme Dieu in Alexandria last week.
Mitch Gesell, who lives about two miles away from where the mussel was found, was out for a run and decided to stop at a friend’s house to take a swim.
It may not be warm enough outside to swim just yet, but when the time comes, residents should be happy to know they can continue swimming at L’Homme Dieu Beach – legally. The public swimming area is now back in the hands of the state and Douglas County after a lawsuit was dismissed.
