  • 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.

  • True Faith: The importance of a good brand name

    "And whatever you do in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." (Colossians 3:17 NIV)

  • Sharks' strong season cut short vs. Mustangs

    In the first round of the District 6 1A tournament, Meadowbrook brought their "A" game, and emerged the 64-43 winner over Cedar Key.

    "We didn't come out the way we wanted; we didn't execute our game plan," said Sharks' head coach Aaron Haldeman after the game.

  • Cedar Key Police Department Reports

    Things continue to be on the slow side for your Cedar Key Police Department, but we are certainly not complaining at this time. We appreciate everyone's concern about DUI's, as they seemed to have hit a low ebb during the past couple of weeks. For that, all of us are very thankful. Remember: have your designated driver with you; know the taxi numbers; or call someone to pick you up, should you over indulge in alcoholic beverages, as our ZERO TOLERANCE still exists. Thanks to everyone for their continuing cooperation in keeping our streets safe at all times.

  • True Faith: Most Extreme Universal Insurance Plan

    "What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matthew 16:26 NIV)

  • Abort-Retry-Fail: Keep in touch

    If you have Internet access at your home, you probably rely on email a great deal. So how do you manage your email when you are away from home? It is easier than you might think!

    There was a time when the traveler had few choices to communicate back to his or her home or office. It was necessary to find a pay telephone or make the call from the motel/hotel room later in the day.

  • Fishing Lines: Sea bass crazy

    My very favorite fish in the frying pan is the black sea bass, and the time to catch them is now. This is the only time of the year that the big males are within reach of my skiff, the spawning season.

    The males have a distinctive "hump" just behind their head and their underside has more white coloration, to attract the attention of the females I imagine. Attracting a mate in their world must work up quite an appetite because they feed with reckless abandon during their seasonal ritual.

  • Reflections: Where to go from here

    The past has brought me across a large spectrum of life. I have gone from being a mechanic to a teacher with a few other occupations in-between including a stint in the military.

    After 24 years of teaching, however, I finally retired to a part time job doing what I love: working at an airport with airplanes.

    Alas, though, with taxes and insurance being what they are, and not making very much money working part time, I have given up the airport job for a full time job again.
