    FFA Land Judging Contest

    By Zo Stuber

    On Friday middle-schoolers Laia Gore, Tyler Anderson, Mady Riley, and Sam Smith, members of the Cedar Key FFA Land Judging Team, will participate in the district competition held in Gilchrist County.

  • 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.

  • 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.
