  • Longtime Levy educator, Robert Philpot, dies at 67

    As word spread last Friday morning that one of Williston’s favorite sons had suddenly died, disbelief coupled with sorrow quickly filled the community, leaving tears – and laughter– in its wake.

    Robert Philpot, the gentle giant who taught agriculture at Williston High School for 37 years, passed from this life to the next at his home March 13.

    Throughout the day, social media was ablaze with this beloved son’s death as family, friends, colleagues and students remembered the life he led and his influence on their lives.

  • Testing the limits

    A Cedar Key girl is one of few in the state who participates in adapted track and field for persons with specific physical limitations.

    Eleven-year-old Annie McCain was born prematurely and has a mild case of cerebral palsy, her mother, Jenny said, adding that it effects her balance. She also said Annie is a very bright girl and is in the gifted program at her school.

  • Heath Davis back on city commission

    Former city commissioner and mayor Heath Davis will be back on the Cedar Key City Commission soon after his candidacy for Seat 1 in the May election did not draw any opposition.

    But two other races will be going to the voters as incumbent Sue Colson drew opposition from John G. Blouse III for Seat 5 and newcomers Diana L. Toppings and Jamie Griffin face off in the race for Seat 3.

  • Woman's Club dinner a success

    One of the big social events on the island during the winter months is the Cedar Key Woman's Club spaghetti dinner held annually at the Community Center. Folks turn out in droves for a down home meal of spaghetti, marinara sauce, salad, garlic toast and dessert provided by the island's finest bakers.

    But it is much more than a meal that brings them in the door, it's the social atmosphere as folks linger beyond the meal to catch up on what has been happening in the lives of the snowbird (winter) residents and locals' lives.
