Outdoors: Young fishermen turn out for Kids’ Fishing Derby About 110 young anglers did their best to hook a big one in Mary’s Lake Saturday morning at the Kids’ Fishing Derby. The event, held every spring and fall, is a way to introduce children to the sport of fishing, said Duane Peterson, special events supervisor for Lawrence Parks and Recreation. “It gives kids and family members an opportunity to be together along with learning how to fish,” he said. Erik Brooks, 8, Lecompton, snagged the biggest fish, a 21-inch, 4-pound, 4-ounce bass. Brooks, who fishes “all the time, every weekend,” used a nightcrawler to catch the bass. The smallest fish, a 3 3/4-inch sunfish, was caught by Jared Wilson. The most unusual catch was a bird’s head, caught by Chris Jared. Flora Taylor brought her two sons and five nephews to the Derby, even though she doesn’t know how to fish. “They’re all excited,” she said. “I think it’s a good event for the kids.” ______________________________________ Community: Farmers market committee receives $1,000 grant The Farmers Market Relocation and Improvement Committee recently got a $1,000 boost from the Kansas Rural Center. The Kansas Rural Center awarded the Farmers’ Market a $1,000 grant to help fund this committee. The Kansas Rural Center is a private, nonprofit organization that promotes the long-term health of the land and its people through research, education and advocacy. The R&I Committee is a group of vendors and patrons working to find a suitable location for the market to expand. Lawrence Farmer’s Market is the oldest farmers’ market in Kansas and features more than 100 vendors selling a variety of locally grown produce, meats, cheeses, milk and crafts. The market operates from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Saturdays and from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursday. The market will open for its 27th season May 11.
