Big turnout for Crappie Tournament despite weather

By Darrell Van Vactor/Ron Presley

Crappie anglers from seven states traveled to Holmes Bend to participate in a Crappie USA (CUSA) Super Event on April 19th and 20th.

Darrell Van Vactor, CUSA Operations Manager, sent special thanks to Sue Stivers with Columbia/Adair County CVB and Joey, Kelly and the staff at Holmes Bend Marina for hosting the event.

"Green River Lake is becoming one of the premier stops on the Crappie USA Trail," said Van Vactor. "And for good reason. It offers great fishing, unequaled hospitality, scenic areas all around the lake, and lots of protected areas to hide in on windy days. Green River will also be the home of the 2020 Crappie USA Classic."

One-Hundred Forty crappie anglers faced high winds and heavy rain on opening day at the Green River event. The bite was on and all but one boat weighed in and most had a limit.

LWC Theatre to present: Love, Loss, and What I Wore

The Lindsey Wilson College Theatre Program will present Love, Loss, and What I Wore, a play by Nora and Delia Ephron on April 24, 25, 26, & 28.

Love, Loss, and What I Wore is a series of monologues and ensemble pieces sharing stories based on clothes and the memories specific outfits bring up. The stories cover all the important subjects--mothers, prom dresses, mothers, buying bras, mothers, hating purses and why we only wear black. Not JUST for women, the humorous and tender stories recalled in these pieces offer something for everyone. (However, Love, Loss, and What I Wore deals with mature themes and subjects, and is not recommended for children.)

This thoughtful production is directed by LWC Director of Theatre Robert Brock, and will be performed at 7pmCT on April 24, 25, & 26 and at 2pmCT on Sunday, April 28, 2019, in V.P. Henry Auditorium, 210 Lindsey Wilson Street, Columbia, KY. For ticket information, contact Robert Brock at brockr@lindsey.edu or (270) 384-8044.
