Blue Hills Trail CONDITIONS
Good hiking on trails that have been cleared of debris from the December 2022 ice storm. When hiking, bring gloves and please remove some tree debris (branches etc) leftover from the ice storm. Trails involved in logging last fall have a dirt surface rather than grass (see logging notes under 'Important Updates').
NOTE: The December 2022 destructive ice storm limits the number of trails cleared of tree damage. Click here for maps showing cleared trails.
Bug activity has been high: bring a hat and bug spray.
1-There's active logging on the West Side between intersections Y & Z, avoid that area while they're logging.
2-Autumn 2022, loggers cut a large timber sale on the East Side. It's probably wise to avoid hiking those trails in all but very dry weather. Click here for a map showing the involved trails.
April 30: damp leaf top dusting
grooming & MOWING
Mowing Report / Plans:

- Consider opening a new online savings account
- Consider closing our existing online savings account
For several years, our savings account has been located at Capital One 360 online. After opening that account, for the first year we received a special interest rate in the vicinity of 2%. Currently that account yields an interest rate of 0.4%.
It seems that very few banks offer business savings accounts with a significant interest rate. However, recently Tom checked bankrate.com and found an online bank (First Internet Bank of Indiana) offering an interest rate of 1.8%. Ron, Sam and Tom agreed today that it makes sense to open a savings account with First Internet Bank (FIB); then after transferring our savings, close our existing savings account with Capital One 360.
Tom will submit the FIB new account application November 27th.
Motion to adjourn by Tom Paulsen, second by Ron Jasperson. Adjourned at 11:10 a.m.
