  • Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge is opening Seahorse Key to the public on Saturday, Feb. 20 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

    Visitors to the island must provide their own transportation or buy a ticket on one of the tour boats.

    Bring your camera, fish a little, walk along the beach and enjoy the exhibits.

    A cast of period-dress volunteers will tell the history of the lighthouse on Seahorse Key, which sits atop the 54-foot tall dune, and offers great perspective for wildlife photography.

  • By a unanimous vote, the Chiefland City Commission approved a proclamation on Monday that honors a Vietnam veteran’s service dog known as Honey, the Wonder Dog.

    Honey is the service dog for Chiefland resident Michael Gaither and is a four-time bronze medal winner of the American Kennel Club’s Humane Fund Awards for Canine Excellence (ACE).

  • Meeting the creature he calls a gentle giant and the iconic figure of Florida in the early 1990s was all it took for one Ohio man to fall hard.

    “I just fell in love. I was hooked,” David Schrichte said of the manatee.

  •  An incident happened this past week in which I am still scratching my head. Have you ever known you had something, but for the life of you, you could not find it? I will accede to the fact that occasionally, I do have a streak of absent-mindedness running through me. At times, I wish it would just walk.

  • Thursdays

    Library Friends meeting

    The Friends of the Luther Callaway Public Library (FLCPL), the Chiefland branch of the Levy County Public Library System, meet on the second Thursday of the month, except in July and August, at 11 a.m. at the library, 104 N.E. 3rd St., Chiefland.

    The Friends support the library by promoting the library’s programs and resources and through fund-raising projects to purchase reading materials, books on tape, videos, operating supplies and minor equipment.  There are no dues.

  •  All my life, sleep has been a most trusted companion. I never leave home without it. It does not matter where I am or what I am doing, I can sleep at the drop of a hat.

     For years, I have heard of people who had problems sleeping at night. I have never been one of those people. I can sit down in a chair and in a few winks, the snoring machine begins. I can never understand people who could not sleep. I always thought they were kind of joking about the whole scenario. Then it happened to me this week.

  •  I spent my last few days of this deer season in Alabama with Jonathon and Hubert (Hube). Jonathon brought Hube not only because they are friends but because it was Hube’s 80th birthday and because Hube loves to hunt. He likes hunting deer and turkey but he is especially keen on bear hunting where he walks the mountains following his pack of dogs. His slender frame is strong and healthy. I ask him how he stayed that way. He replied, “Good livin’ and good eatin’.”
