  • Tin Can Tourists will turn out in droves at Sunset Isle RV Park and Motel at the beginning of December.

       In years past, "tin canners," as they call themselves, have come from as far away as New York, Michigan and Wisconsin to camp and show off their vintage RVs that span several decades.

       Most have been restored or are in the process of being restored, said Bruce Wilson, co-owner of Ada Blue Cafe, located near the RV park.

  • Visitors at Manatee Springs State Park Saturday, Nov. 15,  spy on the park's namesake, returning to the area to take advantage of the spring's relatively warm water.

    The manatee migration began earlier in the fall, perhaps, a sign the mammels knew the weather was turning colder.

    Boaters are being warned to be on the lookout for the slow moving animals on the Suwannee River.  

  • More than 100 veterans and their family members attended Friday's veteran's resource fair and luncheon at Haven Hospice in Chiefland.
