  • Stories from the river

    As a scientist, Dr. Ken Sulak is trained to make observations.
    He makes his living studying the ways of the natural world, with an emphasis, in recent years, on the lives of sturgeon swimming the lengths of the Suwannee River.
    But his professional work over time has bled into his personal interests: observations on the lives of humans and their place in the world.
    "In the course of being on the river, you run into a lot of people, a lot of old timers," Sulak said from his office at the U.S. Geological Survey last week.

    Artist of the Month
    The Cedar Keyhole’s Artist of the Month for August is Joni Hoffman. Hoffman is principally a wood carver. Her carvings of duck decoys, herons, pelicans, egrets, as well as whimsical dogs and cats, are intricately rendered and then painted in appropriate colors. While Hoffman considers herself largely a carver, she also creates drawings, etchings, paintings and walking sticks. The walking sticks are carved local woods, highly embellished and fitted with bells, which serve to alert bears that humans are in the area.
