    The First Step in Recycling is not having anything to Recycle!

    Most of us know that the recycling symbol made up of three arrows in the shape of a triangle stands for REDUCE, REUSE & RECYCLE, but have you ever thought of how important that first direction is? Here are some facts and tips about how to make reducing your fist step in your recycling commitment.

  • Ask a Lawyer

     S.P. of Archer asks, “I recently lost my job but when I applied for unemployment I was told that I wasn’t eligible because my employer said I was let go due to misconduct, which wasn’t true. What can I do about that?”

  • City reconsiders Creswell House

    The Cedar Key Commission is reconsidering its decision last month regarding the Chamber of Commerce’s request to use the city-owned Creswell House.

    The structure, located on 2nd Street next to the Cedar Key Library, is in dire need of repair, according to Commissioner Scott Dennison. “It needs a comprehensive inspection by a licensed professional,” he said. Dennison’s preliminary assessment reports water damage, paint decay, mold, mildew, plumbing issues, termite damage, and broken stairs.

  • Microclimates, containerized tomatoes, and personal garden research

    One of the things we enjoy here in Cedar Key is our island climate - a microclimate. Most of our states are miles away from our oceans and the Gulf of Mexico, leaving us unaware of a year round climate exclusive to our islands. My first year round experience of Florida islands was New Smyrna Beach. These islands are barrier islands with shifting sands and amazing salt content of the air.

    Why bother to Recycle?

  • The Closet Christian

    I have been a church pastor for just under three years. I used to worry a lot about how to act. My old persona was that of a cantankerous businessman and I was concerned that I might leave the house one-day, forgetting who I am, and be short with someone or chew them out for some perceived incompetence. A wide range of behavior that served me well in business for many years might be inappropriate for a minister of the gospel.

  • Finally, a plan to fix Whiddon Ave

    There'll be no more speeding through the school zone on Whiddon Avenue, if the Cedar Key City Commission has anything to do with it. Tuesday, the commission heard a presentation by Rick Hall of HPE Engineering with a proposal for traffic calming solutions for the Whiddon corridor. The project has been a long time coming, because in addition to being the street on which Cedar Key School is located, Whiddon is also, as Mayor Heath Davis called it, “the bottleneck between Way Key and the back islands, Hudson Hill, the airport, and most of the residential part of Cedar Key.”

  • Cedar Key plays host to the stars

    The Cedar Key Star Party is the event of the season, according to City Commissioner Sue Colson. “It’s the most enjoyable experience,” she said.

  • Cedar Key to get new recycling center

    As part of the city-wide conservation movement, a recycling group in Cedar Key will be placing three recycling trailers in the lot across from the Market. The trailers will be painted dark green and local artists will be given the opportunity to paint the sides for a unique Cedar Key impression, said city public works director Josh Wilson.

    The plan will remove the current trailer from Sundance laundry and provide greater capacity and easier access for residents to recycle.

  • Roundabout likely for Whiddon Ave fix

    Representing the City of Cedar Key, CRA interim Director Greg Lang spoke to the School Board of Levy County Tuesday about Whiddon Ave. and options to improve safety throughout the school zone and surrounding area. Options presented include placing a three-way all-stop or a continuous all-yield traffic roundabout at the intersection of Whiddon and H Street.
