  • Why race: Looking LARC in the face

    Paul Roesch used to work at McDonald's in Williston, but he struggled there. Going out to tidy up in the dining room, he wasn't sure when to stop wiping one table so he could move on to the next.

    James O'Sullivan wants to work at Hitchcock's, bagging groceries and rounding up carts. So far, though, the only shift that's open is in the evening, and he and his mother prefer that he work during the day.

    David Estep has a talent for folding clothes perfectly.

  • True Faith: Who will take your place?

    "I myself am convinced, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, complete in knowledge and competent to instruct one another." (Romans 15:14 NIV)

  • Trouble in Cedar Key: It looks like it just might happen

    "It looks like it might just happen." Those are Anne's words a few days back. We were walking around Dock Street at sunup, Anne looking for her perfect photo, that special pose, that candid moment to catch in time on her camera. She's good with the camera, at capturing that single moment.

  • Abort-Retry-Fail: Safeguarding you data

    I have been telling people for years that the most important thing you can do with your computer is to back up your data. You don't necessarily need to back up everything on your hard drive, but you need to make frequent and regular backups of the data that you create.

  • Reflections: Thinking out loud

    A friend and I were talking. Between us we have the world figured out... Well, almost.

    We got to musing on the economy and how things are and likely will be in the near future. Housing is all but at a standstill, and fuel prices are still going up. What we figure, is things are not going to get better anytime soon.

    Now I don't want to sound like doomsday, but we really are not in good shape in this country right now. Not only that, it's going to take a while to get back to somewhere normal again.

  • Fishing Lines: Fishing pretty good, when fish can see

    I remember when I was a kid, we had a great product called Nestlé Quik. You took plain milk and added one or two spoonfuls (or three) of this powder to your milk and you instantly had chocolate milk. The mix was great.

    Now you are saying to yourself, "Has this guy finally flipped his lid? I knew those middle school kids would eventually drive him crazy."

  • Diamond Sharks have woman's touch; opponents say it hurts

    She wears the pink and black Jennie Finch Mizuno batting gloves, rocks the pink and black Mizuno mitt, even checked out the pink and black cleats at Hibbett, "but they didn't fit."

    Her favorite color isn't pink, though.

    Cedar Key's starting first baseman Shawna Fenton wears pink gloves because "I like to aggravate the guys - you know, let 'em know you can wear pink and play good baseball."

  • Next level: Beckham headed to GHS

    Bronson Eagles’ head basketball coach Kelly Beckham announced Thursday that he will leave Bronson Middle-High School, where he has been for nearly 25 years and more than 500 wins, for Gainesville High School.

    Beckham will finish out the school year at Bronson, and start at GHS in the new school year.

    His academic duties at GHS will be largely similar to those at Bronson — he will be a Dean of Students. What will change the most is the basketball. 5A GHS has about 2,000 students; Bronson, in class 2A, has 453 or fewer.

  • Sharks drop home finale to Bell

    Cedar Key baseball dropped its last home game 17-8 to Bell, playing six good innings after coming this close to a 10-run meltdown.

    "We were down 13-0 when we first came to bat in the first inning," said head coach Joe Bishop.

    Bell batted through the order twice in the first inning, with C.J. Harris and Tyler Stofel each hitting home runs, but much of the scoring was due to defensive errors.
