  • ‘No’ is best way to kill off a business

    Customer service is so important to each and every business. If the service is great, your customers will keep coming back. If it is poor, they simply will not.

    One important thing to remember is that the quality of the customer service you provide is not judged by you or your company. It is entirely about the customer’s perception. You must do everything in your power to ensure that the service rendered matches up with what the customer desires.

  • It’s ‘red October’ for the fishin’ this month

    Well, hello again, folks. Due to gale force winds and lots of rain over the last few weeks, we didn't do much fishing. So last week when it became time to think of something to report or chat about for the column.

    Well let's just say for a man like me I was a li’l frustrated and was having a problem thinking of anything nice to say or write.

    But hopefully we are done with that li’l cycle for now at least so we can enjoy some of Cedar Keys great fall fishing.

  • 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.
