  • Humane Society gets a boost for spay and neuter facility

    BRONSON - One couldn't blame the folks at the Humane Society of Levy County for being a little nervous late last week.

    With the prediction of rain on Saturday, the success of the inaugural Bark-N-Purr Festival hung in the balance.

    Wet stuff could put a serious dent in the big fund-raiser held at the Bronson Youth League Park.

  • Cagle rocks Bark-N-Purr

    The cats and dogs of Levy County got a big boost Saturday as country chart-topper Chris Cagle headlined the Bark-N-Purr Benefit in Bronson. The event, a fundraiser for the Humane Society of Levy County's planned spay, neuter and adoption facility, attracted more than 2,700 festivalgoers, according to organizers' first estimates.

    Cagle rocked the soccer field at Bronson Youth League as his stamping, chanting fans sang along to such hits as "What Kinda Gone" and "My Love Goes On and On and On" as well as a sleeper from the new album, "Change Me."

  • Abort-Retry-Fail: Alternatives to 'Office'

    Last week I started on some alternatives to the expensive software that "everyone" seems to want. I have often wondered why people insist on shelling out big bucks (sometimes upwards of $500!) for software that is so far beyond their needs that they will never use it to its full capability.

  • Reflections: The metal-detecting hobby

    My little Cessna is my magic carpet to many places that would otherwise be unavailable by car. An example of that would be the Bahamas Islands. There are no roads to the islands.

    I have spent quite a few hours in the Bahamas, mostly metal detecting the beaches and the close-in waters were people swim. And, too, the beaches behind the bars were especially productive. When folks get loose, they easily lose their jewelry. The Bahamas Islands were very good to me and most always paid for my trips.

  • Cedar Key Police Department Reports

    Wow! Another two weeks without a DUI. Thanks to each and every one of you for your continuing cooperation in keeping this problem to a minimum. It is always less costly if you do your drinking at home, but if you do drink in the local establishments, keep it to a minimal consumption. If you do decide to exceed your capacity of comprehension, with your driving ability impaired, please continue having someone take you home.

  • Sagging floors and a surprise at City Hall

    Like every other historic building in Cedar Key's downtown, City Hall needs a little TLC. A combination of additions and renovations, termites, hurricanes and flooding has made the floors sag in the tidy little building.

    Local Planning Agency (LPA) director and local builder Greg Lang had crawled under the building to make an informal report on damage to the building at this week's meeting of Cedar Key Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA). What he found was neither unexpected, nor particularly alarming - at least not for the future of the building.

  • 'One piece of paper' drives student art exhibit

    Recently Cedar Key School art teacher Debby Manansala saw some digital photos of a competition, purportedly held at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C.

    The name of the show was "One Sheet of Paper," and the competition rules were simple - artists could have one blank sheet of paper to say anything they wanted.
