    It's been one month now that my other half, Tyler Beckham, has been stationed in Japan. (For those of you who are geographically challenged like I am, that's the opposite side of the world.) In dealing with the multiple hardships that dating someone who is an entire day ahead of you with little communication brings, I have come to a conclusion that I think will make day to day life much easier for those of us left at home. Ready for this?

  • Florida State Parks have a program called “parknerships” that involves, as you might guess, partnering with other agencies, civic groups and schools to achieve its goals. This is always a win-win for those involved.  This past week, it was a winning day for the Levy Association for Retarded Citizens (LARC) and the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge.

  • On Feb. 18, the Cedar Key Woman’s Club once more came home beribboned from the Gainesville Arts and Crafts day.
    Each year, the CKWC participates in a District Florida Federation of Woman’s Clubs competition, where first place winners from 17 different communities compete.

  • Eileen Senecal, from the Cedar Key Woman’s Club, has been named Volunteer of the Year by District 5 of the Florida Federation of Woman’s Clubs.
    This prestigious award was presented at the District Arts and Crafts Luncheon held in Gainesville on Saturday, Feb. 18.

  •  A couple of years ago, when I first joined the Energy Advisory Group, one of the other volunteers  suggested that we promote composting along with other initiatives like curbside recycling with unit based pricing, electric/water conservation  and the weatherization program.  My response at that time was – OMG, that’s way over the top --- only the most dedicated “tree huggers” would ever do THAT!  And, anyway, I thought to myself, “I don’t have a garden and I hate yard work, why would I compost?”

  • The University of Florida IFAS Shellfish Extension Program and Florida Sea Grant invite you to a presentation at the Cedar Key Library on Saturday, Feb. 18 from 10:30 a.m. to noon.

    The talk, by Dr. Jennifer Seavey, a landscape ecologist with the Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation at the University of Florida (UF) in Gainesville, will focus on the analysis of oyster reef changes over time in the Big Bend.
