  • Gene Hodges dead at 77

    Cedar Key’s former Mayor Eugene “Gene” Hodges was born into a politically connected family, an heir to knowing how to get things done for the island community and district that he represented in the Florida House from 1972 to 1988. His father, Randolph, was a state senator from 1952-62, a Senate President and later a lobbyist.

    The son, a lifelong Democrat, made his mark in politics by being smart and likable. He used his quick wit that way a carpenter uses a wood plane–smoothing and finely shaping the final debate.

  • Just passing through

    When told he had only five weeks to live, Rodger Howell, 63, sold everything he had and took to the open road with two horses and a dog. His goal: to live every day as if it were his last, visit family and friends and see America.

    That was a year ago, and this week Howell passed through Williston on his quest to reach Niagara Falls by Christmas.

    A former Tennessee police chief, Howell drives his buggy four days a week and rests three, plus he never travels on Sunday.

    He averages 20-25 miles per day and enjoys meeting the people he encounters.

    Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) officials remind beachgoers to check the surf conditions at public beaches.  Understanding the beach warning flags will help to keep you and your family safe as you enjoy the waters.  When red flags are flying, swimming in Florida’s coastal waters can be dangerous.
