Around Town: Maybe fishing promotes fitness?

March 07, 2004|ANNABEL GIRARD

Cedar Creek Lake is one of the state's new hot fishing spots, according to an article in the March issue of Kentucky Living magazine.

Dave Baker leads his Great Outdoors column describing Cedar Creek as "designed from the ground up to be a fishing lake."

Richardson quoted

Bruce Richardson is quoted in an article in Tea & Coffee Asia that talks about the increasing popularity of specialty teas.

Richardson and his wife, Shelley, own Elmwood Inn in Perryville and have written several books about tea rooms, tea food and the culture of tea.


Specialty teas might be described in wine terms as a good vintage, the very best of a particular crop.

Get Moving Kentucky!

With all those extra pounds becoming a national issue, this month's Kentucky Living also has some tips on getting moving.

One even helps you get a little physical activity while buying your order of fries and a hamburger. "Don't go through the drive-through; walk in and stand in line." Another tip: "Return your grocery cart all the way to the store."

Get Moving Kentucky! is the name of a program being promoted across the state by local Cooperative Extension Service agents to encourage us to get physically active.

If you want to participate in the program, check out Go to to learn more about the health issues.

KET presenting programs that should appeal to local listenters

On one hand you're being encouraged to become physically fit; now you'll get encouragement to become a couch potato. KET, as part of its March fund-raising efforts, is presenting several programs that should appeal to local listeners. "Rosemary Clooney: Girl Singer" can be seen tonight and "Seabiscuit" will be shown later in the month.

On Tuesday, "Lexington in the '40s: Swingin' in the Bluegrass" will be shown at 10 a.m. The program will cover the dance era in Lexington at such clubs as Joyland, The Green Dome and the Cotton Club and the ballrooms at the Phoenix and Lafayette Hotels. Also, film footage from the National Archives of downtown Lexington and the University of Kentucky will be shown. It's film that has not been seen since World War II.

My parents used to tell my brother and me about dancing to the big bands, such as Count Basie and Duke Ellington, at Joyland.
