  • The faces of Cedar Key Safety...

    They may look like ordinary fifth graders, but these six 10-year-olds are members of the Cedar Key Safety Patrol. 

    They, along with about 8 other students and teacher, Miss Janeice Smith, are tasked with ensuring that things are safe at school and they had to eat well for the job on the first day of school.

     Proud grandfather Doug Little reports:

  • Heat, storms pose challenge for...

    Okay folks, will someone turn on the Cedar Key air conditioner?

    We still have a good month of this too dang hot of weather. I notice these days with no cloud cover getting tuffer and tuffer to keep bites going. 

  • Orlando man hooks gar near Cedar...

    A fishing trip Sunday afternoon by an Orlando visitor hooked a 3- to 4-foot gar. However, it was cut loose because the prospects of that fish actually being in the boat did not interest the two brothers.

  • ‘Fishing for Youth’ a huge...

     Each summer, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Division of Marine Fisheries hosts Nature Coast Fishing for Youth (NCFY) in Cedar Key - a free fishing clinic offered to area youth. Last summer, with only six clinics, there were about 100 participants, but this summer Cedar Key boasted 11 clinics and 219 participants.

    When Ryan Newman crossed the finish line at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, having won for the 15th time in his Sprint Cup career, he enjoyed a pleasing, but rare, overlap.
    Newman also started on the pole in the Lenox Industrial Tools 301. It was the 47th pole of Newman's career. Only nine drivers have ever won more. But it was only the fourth time Newman won after starting out front.

  • It’s the fishin’ that makes this...

    Hey, everybody, Hope all is well and you are all stayn’ as cool as ya’ can be. I’m having such a hard time right now with my identity.
    Well, usually I want it to be calm because my boat isn’t the best at handling rough weather — it’s just too flat. But lately I been praying for some wind so me and my guests won’t bake to death. So right now I’m kinda confusing myself.
    But all’s good. This weekend was a good one - very little rain threat and some wind to keep it cool. But not too much, so it was rough.
