April 27-29, 2018-Weekend Report from Shell Knob Missouri

We had another wonderful weekend in Shell Knob. Between fishing tournaments, garage sales, Shrine Lady 
Shopping, and plant sales the town was rocking! The Dogwood Trail garden club started early on Friday and had the VFW facility north of town loaded with flowers, planters, and tons of every day items that were clean and ready to use. Shoppers were out on the Plaza as several merchants had put out large signs and specific items for sale. Tickets for the Play sold rapidly and nothing but kudos for the performers at all three performances. Local eateries claimed they did well but the two we selected did not look open or hadn’t opened yet. The Pizza Hut had a great salad bar and a special on 2 pizzas for $5.99 each which was a bargain. Subway had a crowd, lots of people on their deck out back. Our Subway has such a good reputation as being one of the cleanest and has the best servers in two counties. I don’t think anyone had complaints as the weather was awesome. The fishing was good and everyone seemed to have a great time. Crappie was plentiful and small bass was biting something fierce. Around 4 pm there was a massive line of boats/trucks leaving town. People seemed happy with whatever they caught. So God Bless Them. Haven’t heard from Area 71 but in passing Steak Inn they were packed

White Dogwoods are peeking out everywhere! Thank you God for all your good.

Table Rock Fishing is Awesome, so says Cliff Harmon at the Pro’s Choice on Bridgeway Plaza

 

In checking with Cliff Harmon, manager at Pro’s Choice “all things fishy” Table Rock fishing is out of this world this weekend.  Every one is catching  a lot of fish.  Trying to pin him down got me, “all kinds of fish”  are biting….”  So there it is a great weekend for wishing!  It is also the Lady Shriner’s weekend at the Knob.  So let us all put on our best smiles and good behavior and welcome the strangers in town.

 

I was visiting the Dogwood Trail Garden Trail sale at the VFW at 8 am.  The girls have a lot of stuff to share for nominal prices.Check out the plants that are for prizes in the raffle table. Those girls have spent hours organizing this sale.  Things are clean and organised for choice and price. Today they will be open til 5 pm.  Saturday morning they open again at 8 and will close it out by 2 pm.  So go up north  on highway 13, to the VFW.  Plenty of carpeting, fabric, odds and ends, lots of candles too!.

The Harvest Community Garden gals will have a table there to rent a planting plot at the United Methodist Church.  They have 16 plots there that visitors can rent one all summer with water supplied for $20.  Check out the table today  Betty Ragland is there, tell her Hi!

TONIGHT IS THE BIG OPENING OF THE PLAY, ‘THE COWBOY GOT COLD FEET’.  Buy a ticket now at the Chamber building or at the door. The play will repeat itself on Saturday evening and on Sunday at 2 pm.

Step Back, Think, and Question all reports from Sensational News sources

OzarkadvertiserPaula Ozarkadvertiserandersen is feeling concerne

 

 On Monday when I was returning from Springfield and I had the radio on. I was shocked at the meanness that was being broadcast. It seemed every talk show was shouting cruel and judgmental comments with regard to our American system. I remember Columbine and the first event of school shootings. I cried that night because everyone was saying things like that event was the start of something evil. I still feel that way. People under 65 seem to be critical of everything. That age is just a median because being negative seems to be universal. Younger people spout off “Sure, you are happy because I am paying for your retirement.” That hurts because it isn’t true. If it is then somebody screwed the system. I am still working, helpful in volunteering, and a Christian. But–back to the point, the radio stations, everyone that had a talk show host was blasting America, using inflammatory words to describe acts that were actual legal and professional. Mr. Trump’s lawyer was interviewed and he described the way his investigation was conducted. Quote, “They were polite, handed me the summons, asked for entry and in every way legal in their actions.” Now it was reported on 3 television stations and all but one radio station that he was “Burst in upon!” Not true! His legal files, not possessions were taken. Straight from his mouth. It seems we are in a bad period where language,

media news, and writing has to be super exaggerated, and loaded with sensationalism to get the listener/viewer to pay attention. Please feel free to state your views and add to this.

Multi-Species Fishing Tournament

Multi-Species Fishing Tournament written by Clyde Lobb

    The third annual multi-species fishing tournament on Table Rock Lake, sponsored by the Shell Knob Chamber of Commerce, will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2018. This is a fun tournament designed for all fishing abilities and ages. Entrants are encouraged to fish with family members or friends. A multi-species tournament is a different type of event intended to attract anglers with interest in the many different species of game fish available on Table Rock Lake.

    The take-off and “measure-in” will be held at Kings River Marina south of Shell Knob. Take-off is at 8:00 am and the measure-in will be at the marina at 2:00 pm. Once registered, two-member teams can fish from boats anywhere on Table Rock. The entry fee is $40.00 per team. There is also an optional 100% payback longest fish pot. Cash prizes will be awarded for the first and second place teams. There will be a drawing after the measure-in for several valuable prizes donated by area businesses.

    Species included in the tournament are black bass, white bass, walleye, catfish, crappie and panfish. There is a limited number of fish that can be measured for each species. Winners will be determined by the total length of fish presented at the measure-in. There will be a special award for any team presenting a legal fish from each of the six species categories.

    Registration forms are available at the Shell Knob Chamber office, at area businesses and www.shellknob.com. All tournament rules are included on the registration form.

    What might win this tournament- one big catfish, some nice bass, or several panfish? The only way to know is to enter and fish for everything Table Rock has to offer. Spectators are welcome to enjoy the “measure-in” at Kings River Marina on Saturday, May 19 at 2:00 pm.
