  • Reflections: Automotive trivia: Did you know?

    Today's standard passenger vehicle is the most important source of transportation in the world. Over 300 million cars are registered worldwide. Without the automobile, millions of people would not get to work.

    So common is today's automobile, there is a gas station in every town in the United States no matter how small. But this was not always the case. In the 1890's, cars were so rare they were often displayed in circuses.

  • Arts Festival Countdown: After a career, a second chance at art

    "I realized I had a chance to do what I really wanted."

    Atlanta-area water-colorist Jim Wilshire, one of the artists coming to this year's Old Florida Celebration of the Arts, double-majored in archaeology and anthropology at Georgia State University, but after graduation he took a corporate job in sales.

    "I had a family to support, so although those were my interests, I really wasn't able to pursue a career," he said.

  • Abort-Retry-Fail: Keeping your computer secure

    We have all read, or heard, the horror stories from people that have had a major virus infection on their computer. Today, with easy access to the Internet from anywhere in the world, the virus threat continues to increase. But there are steps you can take to keep your computer (and your data) secure.

  • True Faith: How many sins will condemn us?

    “Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness.” (1 John 3:4 NIV)

    Is there a sin gene? Will DNA researchers someday discover that sin consists of a molecular structure and is scientifically observable so that a new professional endeavor will be devoted to eradicating this blight from humanity utilizing sophisticated treatments? Will these treatments be considered a violation of human rights, because they destroy an individual’s unique personality?

  • Fishing Lines: Be patient - grouper are coming

    I remember an old saying that March comes in like a lion and leaves like a lamb. Well that is certainly true for this March so far. High winds and bitter cold (for Florida) dominated much of the first half of March, so I am expecting very mild temps to escort the second half of this month out like a lamb.

  • Reflections: Musings on the Tree City

    Out of town for a little while.

    This past week I have been in Tallahassee, Florida taking in some educational courses for my new job. Tallahassee is a beautiful place - except it is just dog gone cold here.

    Living on the west coast of Florida makes you take for granted the usually mild winters we have. It gets considerably colder towards the interior of the State, especially further north, and northwest like in Tallahassee.

  • Baseball falls to Branford in the rain

    Sharks baseball got off to a great start against Branford in the rain Tuesday, holding onto a 5-3 lead through the fifth inning, but eventually falling 15-5 as the Buccaneers staged a monster rally in the seventh.

    Cedar Key had a nice second inning, as leadoff Ryan Alford got them started with a single and was brought home by Billy O'Dell. O'Dell moved over when Jacob Crosby was hit by the pitch, and both came home off a two-RBI single by Aaron Esposito.

  • Shark softball walks over Bell in five

    Lady Sharks middle school softball made their fortune at the plate Tuesday, waiting out the battery against Bell as they walked to a 14-4 win in five innings.

    Cedar Key led from the first inning, turning an error by Bell into a one-run lead. A big inning in the third boosted them to an 11-0 advantage, and a shortened game seemed certain. However, the Bulldogs chipped, getting two runs in the fourth and two in the top of the fifth, narrowing the score to 13-4 and seeming to head off the 10-run rule, at least for the moment.

  • Old Families' Reunion a hit, again

    Lots of laughing, hugs, and telling stories about old times.

    This was the scene at the 10th Annual Cedar Key Old Families Reunion. And don't leave out the aroma of fried mullet, hush puppies, and swamp cabbage that came to attendees as they walked in the door.

    Mack McCain and others started the event as an "Old Timers Dinner."
