Osage residents put on their games faces and moved the Dorothy Noeske Memorial Bluegill and Crappie Fishing Derby indoors due to a snowstorm. Would-be anglers packed the Osage Community Center, munching on hot dogs, hand-baked goodies and participating in the prize giveaways. This was the 25th annual event under the tournament named for Dorothy Noeske.
