  • Ask a Lawyer

    WILLS, LIVING WILLS AND HEALTH CARE PROXIES

    J.K. of Cedar Key asks, “I don’t have a will, but my children keep telling me I need to get one. I don’t have all that much, just some land, a mobile home, my truck, some guns and a few other things. Do I need a will? And what’s the difference between a will and a living will?”

    Dear J.K.;

  • As seasons change, so do the crops

    Perhaps some of my readers are wondering what is planted in the warm season gardens here. Upon entering through the gates you will notice these gardens have “Karma,” a red bell pepper. This in itself, should make a person “Jolly,” a yellow bell pepper. After a short stroll you might look at the soil and spot a “Little Gem,” a dark green romaine lettuce.

  • Sheriff offers special needs database

    In January 2009, the Levy County Sheriff’s Office implemented a new program designed to assist citizens of Levy County who have special needs.

    This database is accessible from the dispatch center and includes individual specific information on each entered person such as type of special need, contact person, home address, and specific instructions for first responders on how to best assist that person.

  • Grants can catch county in their ‘strings’

    It’s a story right off the national news: Homeowners fighting to prevent foreclosure on their property ask a lender to produce the original promissory note in legal proceedings.

  • Successive planting results in vegetables high in vitamins and minerals

    There is no doubt that spring has sprung in Cedar Key. It would surely seem that those cold fronts from the north no longer require winter clothing to stay warm. Spring is springing up here in the gardens as well, with sun flowers, zinnias and cucumbers breaking through the soil. As of this writing, 1,000 feet of row has been planted by hand with five days gone to show for it. With around 750 transplants planted and numerous seeds carefully placed in the rows, I need a few days off to recover.

    Plastic Recycling 101

    What Plastics can be recycled?

    In Cedar Key plastics (1-7) can be recycled. They do not have to be separated by number or separated from glass, paper or metal recyclables when they are placed in the recycling trailer. The numeric codes 1-7 are generally found on the bottom of the containers and surrounded by the recycling triangle of arrows. If your eyes have trouble finding these numbers, it is generally safe to assume it is recyclable in Cedar Key if is a rigid plastic.
