Najas Marina in Lake Maloney.

Najas Marina - (Spiney Moss)

In recent years, some Lake Maloney residents

have been dealing with a very pesky plant

that has spines on it which not only hurt when

swimming, but it is causing problems for some

on getting boats onto or off of shore stations. 


Dr. Steven Rolfsmeier a professor in the Physical and Life Sciences College at Chadron State College was invited to speak at the Annual Meeting regarding Najas Marina or known to Lake residents as Spiney Moss, however, according to Rolfsmeier, Najas Maria is not a moss at all, it is actually an algae. It is a very short-lived aquatic flowering plant. The flowers produce under the water and also pollinates under the water. Not a lot is known about this plant because it is relatively new, however, it resembles another plant called Holly-Leaf Naiad which is more common in Nebraska. Since little is known about the Najas Maria, they look to the Holly-Leaf Naiad for answers. 


It is a new year and that means annual dues are due again if you would like to be a member of the LMPOA association. Hopefully, you all received your invoice to pay the dues. Last year, we had 165 members of the LMPOA which was an increase from the previous years and actually breaking a record for most members in a year. Your dues matter so much and help to make the Lake a Better Place. Your dues in recent years have gone toward helping with the Lake Maloney Trail which I hope we can all agree how beneficial that has been for so many. Even if you have never stepped foot on the trail, having a trail is safer for all motorists on South and North Maloney Drives. We never had a horrific accident on those roads, but it was just a matter of time making the trail imperative for safety issues. Please consider being a member for 2019 by sending your $50 annual dues to the following address:


PO Box 309
