  • Girls to get another crack at Seven Rivers

    It was a heartbreaking loss Friday at host Seven Rivers Christian, when the Lady Sharks led until the last seconds before losing 37-36. Head Coach Chris Cowart and his team feared the loss would be enough to knock them down from the fifth seed in the district tournament, denying them the opportunity to take on a beatable Seven Rivers team and perhaps advance to the semifinal.

    Girls, boys fall to Hernando

    By Josh Berger and Jessi Robinson

    Cedar Key girls were defeated by Hernando Christian last Thursday, 54-23. Kacey Miller scored 21 points for the Sharks, including two free throws. Hernando Christian's balanced scoring and our ability to stop their offense were major factors.

  • Cedar Key Police Department Reports

    It appears the Grinch is a little late in coming this year as burglaries of several local residences have occurred since our previous press release of Jan. 9. One home owner lost an end table, two potted, six-foot-tall palm trees, four glass flower vases and a hand dolly from the side porch of his home. Total value of the loss was approximately $970.

  • More trash talk: City garbage rates to go up again

    Just a few months ago, the city of Cedar Key raised its rates for residential refuse collection from $15/month to $16/month, the first residential rate increase in nearly a decade. Commissioner Gene Hodges gripped his wallet in mock outrage as he asked the other commissioners, "Another dollar?"

    Over the last few years, the city had absorbed several minor rate increases from its own portion of the fee, and commissioners felt that the city's own increase was both minor and timely.

  • Music. Rhythm. Tile?

    When you sit down to a meal, chances are, you look down at your plate and see a shiny pattern of leaves and flowers, grapevines in relief, a repeating motif in French blue. Before there's anything on the plate, there's something on the plate.

  • Big berries bloom in little CKS garden

    "I'm a strawberry fairy!" These were the words from Cedar Key Pre-K student, Annie McCain, as she took her first fresh-picked strawberry and popped it into her mouth. The eighth grade Ag class assisted members of Cedar Key's Pre-K class in picking their freshly grown strawberries. It all started when Mr. Bruce Wilson donated supplies, plants and guidance to Cedar Key School's Ag and FFA program. Thanks to Mr. Wilson's generosity, the middle school students built a hydroponics system to learn about this modern Ag method.

  • True Faith: Are all statues idols? Are all idols statues?

    "Dear children, keep yourselves from idols." (1 John 5:21 NIV)

    The leaders of Ukraine recently made another bold move to rid their beautiful capital city - Kiev, of all the many statues of Lenin and Stalin. Many citizens of the former Soviet Union spent their entire lives under the stare of these huge figures made of stone and/or iron. Most cities in the old USSR had one large Lenin statue situated in Lenin Square that was usually located in the heart of the city.

  • Reflections: Fly another day

    Airplanes are not go anytime, go anywhere vehicles.

    My airplane is a good example. If the weather is bad you cannot fly. Flying a small Cessna in severe weather can be extremely hazardous to your health.

    I remember one time when flying in bad weather, I got stuck in Clewiston, Florida for a couple of days. I was lucky. I landed at the airport before the weather got so bad I would have been forced down in the Glades. The Everglades is no place to be forced down, anytime, let alone in bad weather.
