26th Great Inland Seafood Festival August 8-11 2013 in Newport Kentucky It's almost time for the Great Inland Seafood Festival in Newport Kentucky!  While the scenes on the Ohio River won't look like the scenes from Boothbay Harbor Maine on the right, the locals here will be enjoying the product of those Maine lobstermen!  10,000 Maine lobsters will be trucked in for the Great Inland Seafood Festival and for $10.95 you can claim one of them as your own!  The event is hosted on the Newport Kentucky side of the Ohio River, so enjoy the Cincinnati skyline as you're munching on crabs, shrimp, oysters and much more!  And a warning, 10,000 lobsters will NOT last the entire festival, so if you show up late Sunday, don't be surprised if lobster will NOT be on your plate!

Cincinnati Among Fittest Metro Areas                           According to an analysis of the 50 most populous metropolitan areas in the nation, Cincinnati was ranked 13th most healthy and fittest city in the US.  The American College of Sports Medicine released its American Fitness Index based upon a number of health behaviors.   Analyzed were issues such as smoking, exercise, obesity rates, chronic health problems and access to health care.  These behaviors were linked up with environmental factors such as availability of parks, recreational facilities, walking trails, and farmer's markets. Minneapolis, ranked number one, spends double the money on parks per capita as some other cities.  When asked how cities can improve their rankings, Walt Thompson, chairman of the advisory board t...
