  • Weekend proves jail has revolving door for Otter Creek teen

    Some folks might say Brian Smetana, 19,  just had a bad weekend. The Otter Creek resident is in Levy County Jail after being arrested twice — once on a charge of shooting into an occupied dwelling and, the second time after being found naked in the bedroom of a 15-year-old — in less than 24 hours.

  • Bicycle patrol pays off in drug arrest

    When the City of Cedar Key Police Department started training their officers on the police bike protocol, nobody guessed that their most recent drug arrest would come courtesy of the bicycles and no seat belts.

    On April 13, two Cedar Key Police Officers — Perry and Cosseboom — were with Levy County Sheriff's Detective Roger Bell getting familiar with the new police bikes early in the evening. They were in the Jernigan Avenue area and noticed a car approaching with two men in the front seat who were not wearing seat belts.

    It appears all media outlets continue to influence the "oil market" and I am sure if they quit giving them this notoriety prices of crude oil would drop sharply. They are constantly promoting big business which apparently enhances their price gouging techniques. They do well enough without the media assistance, for sure. I am sure if you looked up greed in the dictionary you would see faces of all the "oil barons" throughout the world. Also, some of the nation's biggest retailers would definitely be among those "rich and famous" photographs.

    It appears the Arts Festival of 2008 was successful and the Chamber of Commerce did another great job of encouraging the most qualified artists to attend this annual event. Thanks to each and every one of you that gave so much of your time and the great effort contributed by all of you in making this weekend a success.

    Your Police Department was somewhat busy over the weekend but most of the crowd abided by the rules of the road. We, too, appreciate the cooperation of all those attending the festival, as you are part of the fun and relaxation enjoyed by every one in attendance.

    Wow! Another two weeks without a DUI. Thanks to each and every one of you for your continuing cooperation in keeping this problem to a minimum. It is always less costly if you do your drinking at home, but if you do drink in the local establishments, keep it to a minimal consumption. If you do decide to exceed your capacity of comprehension, with your driving ability impaired, please continue having someone take you home.

    Things continue to be on the slow side for your Cedar Key Police Department, but we are certainly not complaining at this time. We appreciate everyone's concern about DUI's, as they seemed to have hit a low ebb during the past couple of weeks. For that, all of us are very thankful. Remember: have your designated driver with you; know the taxi numbers; or call someone to pick you up, should you over indulge in alcoholic beverages, as our ZERO TOLERANCE still exists. Thanks to everyone for their continuing cooperation in keeping our streets safe at all times.
