Good Fishing Close to Home


The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources (KDFWR) created the Fishing in Neighborhoods(FINs) program in 2006 to provide anglers with quality fishing opportunities close to home.

In 2012 the program includes 35 lakes statewide. The aim of the program is to create quality fishing opportunities near cities of all sizes throughout the state. Lakes are regularly stocked with catfish and rainbow trout throughout the year. In addition to these lakes being stocked with catfish and trout, the sunfish and bass populations are regularly sampled to ensure natural reproduction is meeting the needs of anglers. Stocking of hybrid sunfish and/or largemouth bass occur if needed.

The FINs program is a cooperative agreement between KDFWR and Continue reading Good Fishing Close to Home

Indoor Tanning and Your Skin

If you are like me spring is dancing in your head, with sounds of birds singing to the wonderful sights and smells of grass greening and flowers blooming. Ahhhhh—spring is in the air and all around us, what a welcome time of year. Spring usually affords us a much needed break from winter and school, sets the stage for bathing suits, sun and tanning beds. It seems everyone wants to be the first to tan as we race for beaches, mountains, and fields to enjoy and feel the sun tanning our skin.

The other day as I traveled through town I could not help but notice tanning store lobbies full of customers waiting to tan. Even despite warnings from dermatologist and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on the risk of indoor tanning we still insist on browning our bodies. Indoor tanning has Continue reading Indoor Tanning and Your Skin
