  1. Lost & Found
    Not sure where I set it down, but I lost my dog's e-collar remote while on the water Saturday 5/30. It's black/white colored and round with a lanyard. It's $90 to replace the remote, wondering if anyone picked it up? Probably left it on the bank near the Cottonwood Bend campsite somewhere.
