TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam and the Florida Forest Service are today celebrating the 72nd birthday of Smokey Bear, the national symbol for wildfire prevention since 1944.
“In honor of Smokey Bear’s 72nd birthday, I encourage Floridians and visitors to remember and take seriously Smokey Bear’s call to always be careful with fire,” said Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam.
For generations, the Smokey Bear campaign has been the cornerstone for wildfire prevention education. Smokey Bear’s message, “Only you can prevent wildfires,” has helped reduce the number of national acres burned by wildfires from approximately 22 million to 7 million annually. The prevention of wildfires remains one of the most critical issues affecting the country and state with 70 to 80 percent of Florida’s wildfires caused by people.

The current edition of the Cedar Key Women's Clubs cookbook is the third edition, was published in Nebraska by Morris, and is an excellent work. I am earnestly seeking to obtain a personal copy of the first 1982 edition and the second 1989 edition. These were locally published. They are not in the Cedar Key Library.
If you have a copy of either the first or the second edition, or perhaps both, I would like to buy or borrow it or them. I will make copies so that they may be placed in the Cedar Key Library and in the Cedar Key Historical Museum.
I will return your original(s) to you, if you wish. If you are about to discard them, I am willing to buy them and give them a fine home. A “bounty" donation to CKWC will be arranged.
