If you love plants and finding odd pieces of stuff for your yard,  you do not want to miss this event Friday and Saturday April 27 and 28.  Friday the sale will be 8-5 and Saturday 8-11.  So get out early.  This year they have a unique collection of Lenten Roses, Toad Lilies, Day lilies, Black Tomatoes, Hostas, Fountain Grass, Moon Flowers, House Plants and much more.

One of the nicest part of this unique event is that the ladies are actual gardeners and can give advice if you ask for it.  We all need information  on how to care for them. 




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 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.

Cassville Democrat original story

Owner hoping to bring more awareness to animal cruelty

An Eagle Rock woman is speaking out on behalf of her family, which is in mourning after their three labradors were allegedly shot to death and mutilated while playing in Table Rock Lake about half a mile from their home.

Dani Johnson, of Eagle Rock, said her two black labs, Gus, 7, and Tug, 11 months, as well as her yellow lab, Kaycee, 3, were shot to death last week, and she is looking for answers.

“We let them out [on March 13] and they didn’t come back,” she said. “I was up all night calling for them but could not find them. I called the vet office here, and no more than five minutes later, I got a phone call from a person with a really callous voice saying he heard I had called about the dogs. I was happy and thought he’d found them, but the next thing he said was, ‘I just called to let you know that your dogs were shot to death and will not be coming home tonight.'”

Johnson said her husband and his brother went to the vet clinic and were directed to the Paradise Cove Camping Resort.

“They went and knocked on the door there but no one answered, so they went to some neighbors and started asking about the dogs,” Johnson said. “A nice couple answered and immediately cried, realizing we were their owners. They told us how beautiful, healthy, friendly and happy they were and how much they’d enjoyed watching them play. They were kind people, and they were horrified. The neighbors said they were watching the labs playing in the lake when a lady drove a golf cart down to them and began shooting them.

“She didn’t kill them, and the dogs were tortured. They were deliberately doing gut shots, and the people who saw it said they shot Gus repeatedly in his private parts.”

This article is reprinted here in support of the Cassville Democrat’s call for comments.  If you find this woman’s heinous act of killing another person’s pets after she  mutated them call the Barry County Sheriff and voice your concern.
