  • True Faith: Abundant grace builds great communities

    "And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, 'The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.'" (Exodus 34:6 NIV)

  • Abort-Retry-Fail: Alternative software

    Most anyone who uses a computer is aware of the two things required: the hardware and the software. Many computer users, however, never give a thought to the types of software or the various titles available.

  • Fishing Lines: Fish need vacation this month

    Trout season remains closed until March first. Grouper season is closed until March 15. The pelagics are not here yet and likely will not roll into town until the full moon in March (21, first day of spring). The whiting which ARE in season seem to be in hibernation and are mostly unwilling to take any kind of bait, likely due to very cold water temperature. There is a small school of cow-nosed rays between Cedar Key and Wacasassa but they prefer clams over anything in the water and are totally useless in every way (unless you sell clam seed).

  • Reflections: A lonely Cedar Key V-Nickel

    This last weekend I took a trip back to another place in time. I metal-detected the beaches of the Cedar Key out Islands hoping to find some coins or perhaps a piece of jewelry or two. Those beaches are popular places for sun worshippers and picnickers. They lose coins and jewelry just like on other beaches.

    As usual I found some coins. I even managed to find a little silver earring. The coins like on most beaches were so crusty you could hardly tell what they were. The salt and sand encrusted them with a layer of what looked and felt like sandpaper.

    Ready to run

    By Zo Stuber

    Cedar Key athletes prepare for the opening of track season this week, assembling equipment, and spending time out at the new track. The track is completed, with the last lane numbers and start and finish lines being painted a few weeks ago. The track team updated all their equipment, and have been spending the first three practices putting together hurdles and other track and field necessities. The Sharks' track and field purchased the equipment using school board money and money donated by Doug Bishop.

  • Teach them to fish ethically and they'll have fun (and food) for a lifetime

    Although it seems like Cedar Key's middle name is Fishing," (and first and last names, as well), there's a first time on the water for everyone. With a huge increase in the popularity of recreational fishing and water-based activities, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has an interest in making sure that people who fish Florida waters have a good time, but do it safely, and with the least possible impact on the state's fisheries.

    That's where Missy Jackson comes in.

  • Abort-Retry-Fail: Home Networking

    Last week I mentioned WiFi networks and their impact on the traveler's ability to keep in touch. WiFi can do much more than that; it can help you network your entire home.

    First off, let me talk about networks in general.

  • Fishing Lines: Show a little self-control

    I don't know how so many fishing catalog companies get my name and address (I barely know it myself), but during this time of the year I nearly need a wheelbarrow to haul all of them to the house every day.

    Well, actually my wife picks up the mail, but these magazines keep her strong.

  • Reflections: Weary winter weather

    One of the reasons I returned to Florida when retiring from the U.S. Navy, was to return to a warmer climate. When I left Virginia the Chesapeake Bay was frozen over - one of the worst, coldest years on record for the east coast of the Commonwealth State. The snow followed me all the way to Florida on that memorable trek back home. Florida is where I was born and Florida is where I wanted to stay and I was determined to get there.
