MILLER LAKE: A familiar face is back in Miller Lake marking the unofficial beginning of summer.

Under cloudy and warm skies on June 18, Krista Snow and several others boarded a personal boat and headed out for the middle of Miller Lake.

That’s where they placed Emily for another year of greeting motorists passing by on Hwy 102.

Emily is tied down with extra security so she’s not easy to be taken, as she had been the victim of thefts in the past.
