FISHING AT CARLYLE LAKE IN 2012 SHOULD BE EXCELLENT

According to the US Army Corps of Engineers, fishing at Carlyle Lake should be outstanding in 2012.  The Illinois Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Division recently provided the results of the annual 2011 fall survey of Carlyle Lake.  Largemouth and White Bass both showed very strong populations.  The Crappie population is outstanding, possibly the best it has been in years.  During the survey, they reportedly collected 110 fish per hour.  The daily crappie creel limit has been raised from 10 to 15 fish.  Due to a few high water years, the bluegill population has also experienced an increase in numbers.  For more information, call the Carlyle Lake Project Office at 594-2484.


MULBERRY GROVE VILLAGE BOARD CONSIDERS DOG CATCHER

At the Mulberry Grove Village Board meeting Monday, a concerned resident addressed the board and presented a letter with 38 signatures asking why the animal control ordinance was not being enforced.  The board agreed something must be done and discussed the problem and possible solutions.  The board is considering reinstating the position of dog catcher for the village. 
An old tractor in a building at the cemetery will possibly be available for purchase.  The board will investigate the tractor’s value.
