  • Troy Chancey knows there’s no place like home.
    After a year of being shot at and interrogating enemy combatants in Afghanistan, the 22-year-old Army specialist admits being back in the relatively slow pace of Chiefland is a little strange. But life in the states is something he looks forward to getting used to again.
    “I wanna’ do a lot of the things I missed out on,” Chancey said Friday from the home of his grandparents Janice and Buster.

  • Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge hosted its summer open house of Cedar Keys Light Station celebrating the 158th anniversary last Saturday.

  • About a dozen children, with parents in tow, showed up at the Cedar Key Public Library Friday afternoon to watch Geddy the Gecko perform.
       Geddy and the children danced, listened to short stories and songs about several South American countries. About halfway through the program, Geddy transformed into a larger, puffed up version of himself who promptly moved into a break dance routine that culminated with the oversized reptile spinning on his head.

    Don’t let summer stressors ruin your landscape’s good looks. Instead give your plants’ natural defenses a boost and keep both vegetable gardens producing and flowers blooming.
    Busy summer schedules can lead to plant neglect and less-than-picture-perfect gardens. When you team this with summer heat and drought that can lead to wilting, brown leaves and poor growth, and add insects and diseases that can further weaken and damage plants, gardens can really suffer.

  • Corey Rogers has a sense about horses, about what makes them tick and what it takes to mold them like a lump of clay into a thing of beauty and trust.
    "I just like it, "Rogers said from a barn at Chiefland's White Farms Friday where he works as a trainer. "This is about the only thing I've found I'm good at."
    Rogers, a Chiefland native, likes it so much he moved away to Nevada to train horses after graduating high school in 2007. In June, Rogers came home with intentions to stay, but he wasn't alone.
