  • A few years, ago Earl Damann, of Williston, saw an article in the paper about a new group seeking volunteers.

    “Oh, I think it would be fun,” he told his wife Stella. He called the telephone number.

    They joined the fledgling group Citizens on Patrol, and after more than 7,250 hours of service to the Levy County Sheriff’s Office he’s giving up the fun because a heredity kidney disease is forcing him to the sidelines. That’s a little over 906 days of 8-hour shifts.

  • Seahorse Key gets its name from the shape of the island, but its rich history is complex: a detention camp for displaced Seminole Indians, an outpost with a lighthouse built in 1854 to guide ships into the port of Cedar Key and a prison during the Civil War.

  • Tons of delicious seafood, a parade, live music on the Gulf and shopping in historic downtown Cedar Key – What more could anyone want? The 40th Annual Cedar Key Seafood Festival takes place this weekend Saturday Oct. 17 and Sunday Oct. 18 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
