  • Sour attitude creeps in on constant wind

    Wind, wind, and, oh yeah, more wind. That's the report for the week.

    It seems that the wind has just decided it would blow every day. Y'all have to excuse my sourness, but it’s kinda’ cramping my style a bit.

    And the grouper guys, man, hey let's open the season for a month or so. And what happens almost the entire time is 20 to 25 knot winds. I'm sure the beloved protected goliath grouper will keep the grouper catching covered for the offshore guys—until they get a chance to get out.

    Ok, I'm done crying.

  • Do I have to share the road with bicyclists?

    H.W. of Cedar Key writes, “You’ve been writing about golf carts lately, but I have a beef about another kind of nuisance on the roadways... bicycles. There’s this guy who rides his bicycle about in the middle of the road all the time and I’m tired of it. Isn’t he supposed to get out of MY way, not the other way around? Who has the right-of-way on State Road 24 coming into town...my car or his bike?”

    Dear H. W.,
