    Museum director
     The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, April 14, at the Levy County Quilt Museum. We had a great day. Many were out with sickness, doctor visits or other appointments, so we appreciate everyone who can come and be here on Thursday.   Next week we will have the Red Hat Ladies from Gainesville.
    Greg and six boys were out Wednesday and we did get about two weeks work done with mowing, cleaning flower beds, putting up a quilt, moving sewing machines and so much more.  Thanks Lancaster.

  •    Spring is here and your garden soon will be producing tons of vegetables and fruits. Or, you may want to take advantage of farmer’s markets, road-side stands or you-pick operations. Preserving some of that food for use later in the year will give you great taste and good nutrition and will also make memories for a lifetime.

  • The Chiefland FFA Bull Bash will be starting at 8 p.m. at Carter's Arena, just outside of Chiefland. Advance tickets are $10, or tickets can be bought at the gate for $12.

  • I’m not afraid of  dementia
    Two years ago, I featured Sven Dorsey, who had read this column in the Lebanon (IN) Reporter. He said then to call back “in a couple years” so readers could track his progress with vascular dementia. After calling recently, what I learned about him surprised me.
