About this Article

Not much has happened since last fall when the Lake County Forest Preserve District bought the former campground on Lake Marie near Antioch, which had operated since the 1930s. And nothing will be in the near future as a forest district committee nixed a request from a snowmobile club to establish a connection to its traill network. "If we said no to the people who wanted to just park and walk, how do we say yes to the snowmobilers?" Bonnie Thomson Carter said.
