  • Three Florida panthers die in...

    Florida panthers are off to a rough start in 2012, with three deaths documented by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Last year, 24 Florida panther deaths were recorded, but FWC biologists also observed 11 radio-collared females giving birth to 32 panther kittens. Overall, the known number of newborn panthers in 2011 appears to have offset the known number of panther deaths.

  • ‘Big Redfish R Us’

    Welcome folks to this week’s edition of Big Redfish R Us.

  • Looking for signs of life

    The four hunters spaced themselves about 20 feet apart, in a straight line, poised at the edge of a wall of palmettos and gallberry. The leader of the group, pointing on a map, gave quick directions about his plan of attack: straight through, in a grid, a few hundred yards out, then reposition and come back, covering an adjacent swath of land.

  • Tuck’s memory lives on

     This past October, the City of Cedar Key Commission gave preliminary approval for development of a horseshoe crab educational display to be located either in the City Park or along the railing, adjacent to the park on A Street.
