A Missouri man left Summit County with a bad taste in his mouth after receiving a ticket for trespassing in Blue River. The man says he took his family to the Goose Pasture Tarn in Blue River to take a quick photo. However, the private lake is owned by the town and available for use only to property owners of the town, and he was approached by a Blue River officer and given a ticket. “Does Summit County really want me to visit? That is what I was asking myself after our seven-day visit last week. … Before I could say anything, he was threatening to arrest me. In the end, he said that he was going to do me a favor and not put me behind bars. Instead, he was only going to fine me $106 dollars.” He finished the letter saying this is the first and last trip for his family. “I prefer to vacation where I feel wanted. Not where an officer threatens to arrest me for snapping a souvenir photo of my family.”
