  • Déjà Vu translates to eco-chic recycled clothing

    The thriving consignment store, Déjà Vu, on Second St. was started by Nancy Stephens in 2002 when she saw the need in the Cedar Key community for locally available and economically priced gently used clothing. Thus began one of Cedar Key’s many contemporary efforts to recycle.

    Even if you haven’t yet had the opportunity to shop at Déjà Vu, you’ve probably been recycling your clothes for years, though you may not think of it that way.

  • The Two of Them

    It was early morning a couple or so days back. It was cool, crisp and dry. The sun had not yet shown.

    Dawn was near. A bright planet was in the western sky setting ever so slowly, Jupiter I believe. The sky was clear of clouds, the stars remaining were dimming.

    Somewhere near, a heron squawked three times decreasing in volume. The water was calm. Some terns had awakened and were working the water in the calmer places.

  • Fire Prevention Week tips can help save your family

    What’s the best way to protect your family from fire? Be ahead of the game, of course.

  • Meet the Class of 2023

    Meet the class of 2023. And in 12 years, try to remember how they looked today - when they were only 5 years old, full of energy and weren't bent over their cell phones texting their 23 BFFs.

    The group of 14 are all five years old, except their elder classmate, Jaden Collins, who is six. They sat (or tried to sit) Tuesday for their first interview ever with a newspaper. They talked about school in general, about what they have learned in the past six weeks, what their favorite part about school is, and of course, who their favorite teacher is.

  • Drone use on commission agenda

    The Cedar Key City Commission will consider a request to allow George George T. Lewis Airport to be used by drones ␣ similar to those used by the military in Afghanistan and Iraq ␣ to conduct seagrass bed research.

The Levy County Commission agreed in its Oct. 4 meeting to sup- port the project on the condition he also win Cedar Key city official’s approval.
