News-you-can use from The Ledger this morning included the Timeout cover story on Pigfest, which kicks off at 5 p.m. Friday. Pigfest, which benefits local charities, has grown to a major event, attracting thousands. Fans even express their love on Facebook.
Elsewhere in Timeout:
- A preview of Yakov Smirnoff’s performance tonight at The Lakeland Center
- A Nibbles review of Britt’s Cafe near the Oakbridge Publix
- And a photo of my friends Gary and Erika Schmidt advancing their Saturday night Vital Spark North performance at the Polk Museum of Art.
Other Lakeland stories in The Ledger today include a photo of the rubble that was once part of the well-known Tudor house on Lake Hollingsworth and briefs about the reappointment of Daniel Dorrell to the Polk State College board and the guilty verdict in the trial of a woman charged with stealing nearly $1 million from Clark & Daughtrey.
