February 7, 2011

LAKE J.B. THOMAS — A boating accident and near-freezing temperatures took the lives of two Stanton women over the weekend.

Melody Cook, 46, and her daughter-in-law, Erin Cook, 28, died after their boat capsized Saturday during a family fishing trip at Lake J.B. Thomas.
According to investigators, the women were in a boat with Melody's husband, Kyle, and the couple's step-son, Kevin. When the boat capsized, Kevin, Melody and Erin swam for shore in the frigid water. Authorities said the temperature was about 34 degrees at the time of the accident.

No doubt, it's about trout.

And kids, of course.

The Greater Big Spring Rotary Club will stage the third Kid's Fishing Tournament on Saturday, Feb. 12 at Comanche Trail Lake. It's held at this time of year to take advantage of the lake's recent stocking of trout by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

Ken McIntosh, pastor of the First Christian Church, Greater Rotary member and event chairman, began the tournament in 2009. The Rotary Club officially hooked the event two years ago.
