Box 426 II West Point Lake Representative Brown Works On Lake The State Represen.tative for Hogansville is Jeff Brown who has continued to express to the Corps of Engineers that the water levelofLake West Point remains low during the winter months. Brown and other lake authorities are of the opinion that the low levels are not necessary. Brown and others feel that the responses "defy com- mon sense." If the winter manage- ment philosophy continues it could have a negative role in what is ulti- mately agreed upon by the Tri State Compact for West Point Lake. Brown has asked why the lake must be drawn down starting in November for possible heavy rains starting mid- February. He is of the opinion the lake is a shallow lake that can be quickly drawn down in late January without causing downstream problems. At present, the level creates un- safe boating, denies hundreds of dock owners use of their docks, increases erosion, and makes the lake unsightly for three months. The Corps of Engineers are of the opinion the early draw down is needed to have adequate storage to store floodwaters. They are concerned the heavy rains could occur in January and February. The Corps designed the present plan to provide a greater amount of flood prevention because it holds the lake low during the wet- test months of December through May. Brown has now asked the office of U.S. Congressman Bob Barr and Ken Manning, Chairman of West Point Lake Advisory Task Force, to take up the hattie since the correction must take place on the federal level. Troup Sheriff Makes Burglary Arrests Investigators with the Troup County Sheriffs Office have cleared a number of burglaries and thefts with the arrests of two people and the recovery of more than one hundred pieces of property. Thirty-three year old David Peter Klehn, Jr. of Sivell Road faces two charges of burglary, two counts of felony theft by taking and one addi- tional count of theft. Thirty-six year old Mark Kern Smith of Lethea Drive is charged with theft by receiving stolen property. Investigators say more charges could be filed as the investigation continues and as the property is identified. Investigators recovred various items at a barn located behind Klehn's home. Most of the items were hand and power tools although some fishing equipment has also been recovered. Sheriff Turner is asking anyone who may have been the victim of a theft or burglary during the last two years in the Sivell Road area to call Investigator Byron Hadley in the Criminal Investigation Division at 883-1618. "We believe these individuals could be responsible for several of the thefts and burglaries that we have been looking into in this area," Turner said. "We have a number of items that have been recovered and we need to link it with the victim "Our investigators have been working hard on these cases and we're glad we can clear them with these arrests," Turner added.
