  • The Most Wonderful Time of the...

    I have fiercely defended October as the best month in sports for a long time. The World Series. Pivotal mid-season football games in high school and college. The NFL gets into full swing. Huge chase races in NASCAR. The NBA and NHL seasons begin.

    But this April is beginning to change my mind.

    When the crowd gathered at the Cedar Key Library recently, they didn’t expect the great surprise. The Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge was hosting a talk on the latest research on Swallow-tailed Kites.  As birders were arriving for Dr Ken Meyer’s presentation, Dr Dawn Miller, Gainesville veterinarian and certified wildlife rehabilitator, came in the door carrying a magnificent swallowtail.

  • Tips for turkey

           Whether you oversee a large tract of land or own a smaller parcel, there are many wildlife management techniques you can use to help attract wild turkeys to your property.

  • Clint's for Certain

    The Sprint Cup season is only five races old, but Clint Bowyer has gone a long way toward eliminating the uncertainty that clouded his career during the off-season.

    Bowyer, 32, made his name at Richard Childress Racing, where he won five races since joining the Cup ranks full-time in 2006. Twice he won at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, in 2007 and 2010, and at Talladega Superspeedway, in 2010 and 2011. He also won at Richmond, in 2008.

  • They’re back; Sturgeon returning...

    They’re back. Gulf sturgeon have begun their annual migration back into the Suwannee River.
    Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) officers have reported seeing the fish jump already this year.
    People have been injured in accidental collisions with the jumping sturgeon. In 2011, six boaters were hurt and 11 encounters with sturgeon were reported.

  • More than just a game

    Sometimes a game of baseball, and five days of care, can overcome language barriers, poverty and even hatred. 

     

  • Fade to Brown

    Bronson Blue Springs has lost its sparkle.

    Severe drought, according to Suwannee River Water Management District Engineer Meagan Wetherington, has caused the spring to quit flowing. And recent rains, though not enough to recharge the aquifer, have caused water from nearby swamps, heavy with tannins, to flow into the spring, staining it muddy brown.

  • UF to study Levy sea rise

    Researchers at the University of Florida say they want community input from residents of Levy County on the threat of rising seas.
    Last month, according to UF Department of Urban and Regional Planning professor Dr. Kathryn Frank, UF began a two-year project aimed at helping the county cope with the inevitability of rising seas due to climate change.
    ‘We’re still in the information gathering process,” Frank said about the project, which is funded by a Florida Sea Grant
