This is also the time of year we set the foundation for things to come. Our next two events set the foun- dation for other events scheduled later this year. The Spring Scholarship Bass Fishing Tournament at Lake Kyle is March 26. (I bet you have a couple of questions by now like: Bass fishing in Kyle? and Where is Lake Kyle?) At sunrise, Saturday, March 26, area anglers will be competing for the first fish, largest fish and most fish. The tournament is divided into four flights: men; women; over 45 and under 45 years of age.

All money raised from this event sponsors the free Kid's Fishing Clinic and Derby held the first Saturday of Jtme.

Okay, still wondering about bass fishing in Lake Kyle? Lake Kyle is the new park coming to Kyle as a result of more than $1 million in park grants." The park entrance will be on Lehman Road, across from Masonwood Drive. Plans, being developed, will give Lake Kyle the look and feel of a Texas State Park, but without paying admission. The park is more than 118 acres and the lake cov- ers nearly 19 of those acres.

Many of our readers may already be familiar with the Texas Crossword and just a couple of weeks ago the brothers passed their 1000th crossword milestone. Older brother Charley thought up the idea.
