Tense Moments

With the championship hardware on the line, weighmaster Jay “Turk” Hickman and anglers Mark Wilson, Jason Cain, Wayne Howard and Glenn Ward waited eagerly to let the weigh-scale determine the outcome of the fifth annual “Castin’ for Cash” Lake Despair bass tournament last weekend. Cain and Howard edged Wilson and Ward by less than half a pound to claim the derby crown. –Wes Gilbertson photo

A ‘whale’ of a time

Seven year-old Jacob Bolzan appeared to be sending some sort of message to this paper whale he was working on this morning. Bolzan was one of about 15 youngsters making the sea creature crafts at the Memorial Sports Center, all part of the Rec’N Crew’s Splish Splash week.
