  • 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.

  • Why kids can drive golf carts in CK

    C. C. of Cedar Key writes: “I wrote to you last month about being able to drive my golf cart around the city of Cedar Key without a driver’s license even though my license was suspended, and you told me I couldn’t because it was a motor vehicle and I had to have a valid driver’s license. If that’s true, why do I see kids who don’t have licenses driving golf carts all over the place? If they can do it, why can’t I?”

    Dear C. C.,
