Photo Credit: HILLSBORO TRIBUNE PHOTO: DOUG BURKHARDT - A memorial to the four Garcia family members from Hillsboro who tragically drowned Monday rests on a blue-draped table at the edge of Hagg Lake near Sain Creek. Swimmers and waders alike are warned to be especially careful at the lake, and wear life jackets! There are sharp dropoffs here and there, and the lake -- which appears very calm and peaceful -- is not as safe as it looks. Be careful.  A public memorial for the family is being planned; details will be forthcoming. (Hillsboro Tribune photo by Doug Burkhardt.)
