Fishing, baseball seasons are here

The buggy drawing that took place a couple of weeks ago at Wister was a huge success. I did not get my hands on all the winners' names, but I do know that Brad McMillin won a gun from J.R.’s Pawn and Gun.We also gave away a couple of guns provided by Wister Pawn and Gun and Poteau Pawn and Gun. I really appreciate all the people who made this possible for all the kids at Wister who will be helped by this fundraiser.• • •The BASSMaster Classic took place last weekend on Grand Lake, and Cliff Pace of Mississippi was the winner with a three-day weight of 54 pounds, 12 ounces. That is an average of just more than three-and-a-half pounds per fish.For the win, Pace took home a $500,000 check, and went down in the books as the 33rd winner of the Classic. Pace battled the elements for three days, including weather ranging from snow to bluebird skies.Have a great week!• • •E-mail questions or comments to
