As preparations are finalized for the 50th Annual Spring Arts Festival in Cedar Key on April 12 & 13, a new mural to commemorate the event is taking shape in downtown Cedar Key. Plans for the mural have been in the works for over a year, according to festival coordinator, Bev Ringenberg, but the first “real paint” went up on the wall last Friday morning.
The large pile of debris you may have observed on Grove Street near its intersection with state road 24 is the result of a very successful cleanup of Cedar Key’s Railroad Trestle Trail. Florida’s Nature Coast Conservancy held the annual cleanup of the Trail on March 8.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will be holding a public hearing at the Tommy Usher Center in Chiefland, on Tuesday, April 1, at 6:30 p.m. on proposed deer hunting rules for the north Florida region.
Cedar Key students need help.
The junior class was unable to raise enough funds for its prom, and students are asking the community for help. If you're interested, donations can be dropped at the Cedar Key Chamber of Commerce or at Cedar Key School ( marked "Junior Prom"). Sue Colson has also volunteered to come to businesses to pick up dontations.
The deadline is Wednesday, April 23.
Hey everyone. I hope everyone is enjoying this little shot of nice weather and, man, let’s hope it lasts a little while. We need some kind of good trend with no wind, no rain, and maybe, just maybe, our water will get cleared up some.
