     John H. Anderson Jr. is scheduled to portray historical figure Frederick Douglass on Saturday, Jan. 29, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., at the Cedar Key Community Center 809 Sixth St., Cedar Key.
     Frederick Douglass was an escaped slave who became a prominent activist, author and public speaker. He became a leader in the abolitionist movement, which sought to end the practice of slavery, before and during the Civil War.
     The life of Douglass includes a significant impact on human rights. He also became involved in the movement for women’s rights. He was the only African American to attend the Seneca Falls Convention, a gathering of women’s rights activists in New York, in 1848.
     As for the performer, Anderson is the son of Civil War re-enactors and has been part of his mother’s reenactment troupe for 17 years. Anderson learned about the role of the famed abolitionist orator Douglass and began giving speeches and conducting discussions on the Civil War and the contribution of people of color. 
     Anderson speaks to all races, ages and cultural backgrounds in his method to have everyone present at the performance to feel enlightened and proud to be an American descendant of history, regardless of which side a person’s ancestors stood during the Civil War.
     Anderson has participated been the main speaker at the Emancipation Day commemoration in Tallahassee and many other events.
     The Cedar Key Historical Society is proud to note Anderson is appearing in Cedar Key as the society’s guest, and to add this island city to his list of public appearances, according to information sent by the Cedar Key Historical Society.

 


2022 starts with
clear view of Full Wolf Moon

2022 Full Wolf Moon
This picture of the Full Wolf Moon of 2022 captures the image of the biggest satellite of planet Earth as it is seen at about 9 p.m. from The Ink Pad in Levy County. By this point the view of the Moon had cleared the surrounding pine trees to the east, although a vision of a more yellow-colored and bigger appearing Moon that evening could be noticed through the pines earlier in the evening. 

Story and Photo

     TRI-COUNTY AREA –
The first full moon of 2022 was easily seen from across the Tri-County Area of Levy County, Dixie County and Gilchrist County.

     The Full Wolf Moon was 100 percent lit by the Sun on Monday, (Jan. 17), while in the constellation of Cancer, the Crab. That moment came at precisely 6:48 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST), when looking at the Moon from the Tri-County Area, according to information from the magazine Forbes, and The Old Farmer’s Almanac as well as information from the United States Naval Observatory and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
     Even as late as 6:50 a.m. EST on Tuesday morning (Jan. 18), the Full Wolf Moon was visible approximately 50 degrees above the northwestern horizon when looking from The Ink Pad.
     At that moment in the unrecorded subdivision of Jemlands, located in the unincorporated part of Levy County located west of Carter’s Crossroads (State Road 346 and Levy County Road 347) and the community of Fowlers Bluff, when the outdoor temperature was 44 degrees Fahrenheit, the sky was clear.
     The Old Farmer’s Almanac includes a wealth of information about many aspects of life. As for Moon folklore, and names listed in that publication, alternative January Moon names beyond Full Wolf Moon include the Center Moon.
    The term Center Moon, the publication noted, is used by the Assiniboine people of the Northern Great Plains. It refers to the idea that this Moon roughly marks the middle of the cold season. Other traditional names for the January Full Moon include Cold Moon, Frost Exploding Moon, Freeze Up Moon, Severe Moon, and Hard Moon.
     There are other names for the January Full Moon listed in The Old Farmer’s Almanac, which has names for all of the Full Moons of 2022. Unlike some of the moon-views of 2021, this 2022 nighttime vision was not obscured by clouds.

Grader Monday
Levy County Road Department
One of the road graders operated by the Levy County Road Department is seen during its grading of Northwest 100th Avenue on the western edge of the unrecorded subdivision known as Jemlands in the unincorporated part of Levy County between Carter’s Crossroads and the community of Fowlers Bluff. The smoothing operation was on Monday (Jan. 10).
Levy County Road Department
A grader operator returns a wave as a passing Levy County resident passes the vehicle in operation. A Road Department dump truck brought some added material to fill sandy potholes that appeared in the road as well. While this is a county-maintained road, the dirt roads in the subdivision are not maintained by the government. People have moved in more mobile homes to this area recently to make it even more densely populated than before. Some residents of the Rainbow Lake Estates subdivision recently complained to the County Commission about squatters and illegal campsites in their part of Levy County, as the county appears to be attracting more and more residents.

Steamy Ponds
Teamy ponds
These two pictures of a retention pond adjacent to U.S. Alt 27 between Chiefland and Bronson show the cold air causing the water’s evaporation to become visible above the relatively warmer pond water.

Steamy Pond
This was seen on Tuesday morning (Jan. 4). It’s not steam, but instead is more like a lifting isolated fog cloud.
