Hwy. 27/441   Drive carefully on Hwy. 27/441, drivers could be looking for these new businesses, so keep your distance.   FYI:  My 3 year old iPhone battery bit the dust.  After checking on line I found: Repair Wireless at 124 S. US Hwy. 441 in Lady Lake.  The small store in the Lady Lake Plaza is located just south of the castle building.  A new battery and installation cost $49.00 plus tax.  Na, the associate, reminded me that I should let my battery run down to less than 10% power before recharging and not leave it charge overnight.  It should take about 3 hours to recharge the batteries.  If I had known this before, maybe I could have saved $49.00.   No answer on the 41.5 acres behind the Rio Grande Pool yet.  The District is waiting for Lake County to give the approval to move forward.  If Lake County approves, the District will then prepare information for the AAC.   Questions, comments, or complaints in our Lady Lake/Lake County Region should be addressed to departments that can help you:   Community Standards            352-751-3912 Customer Service                    352-753-4508 Lady Lake AAC Rep               352-205-8140 Lowell Barker Lady Lake Town Hall              352-751-1545   Reminder:  Lady Lake Regular Town Board Meetings; November 7, 21, Dec. 5, at 6:00 pm, Special Board Meeting; November 21 at 5:30 pm.   Reminder:  Amenity Authority Committee Meetings (AAC); November 9, and December 7, 9:00 am at the Savannah Center.   My best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving.   Dan
