    Ron White coming to Gainesville

  •    Be a powerful voice in a child’s life.  Advocate in the court system for children who have been taken away for neglect and abuse. 

       No special background is needed, staff and legal support provided. Next training starts April 27 in Chiefland.  Call (352) 463-3135 or go to www.guardianadlitem.org.

  • Ben Thomas opened the door and pulled out a rifle.

    “Are you familiar with the Henry?” he asked in a stern southern accent.  “They’ve been makin’ them since 1890.”

    The rifle was pointed upward and was stuffed with a bright orange cord, an indication that it was safe for the handling, according to Thomas.

    He made a series of rehearsed movements, illustrating the safest way to place a weapon of this sort into the hands of another.

  •  The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 383, Old Town, is having an Easter Dinner – ham and all fixings – on Sunday, April 4, from 12:30  p.m. to 3:30 p.m.  A nominal donation of $5.00 is asked. 

      This dinner is for American Legion,  Sons of the American Legion and Auxiliary  members, their families and guests.  Not everyone has someone – so don’t be alone – come spend the afternoon with us and have a good meal was well!

  • Anyone can enjoy the treats of summer with careful planning and shopping. TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) recommends these substitutions to lighten up a traditional cookout.

    Substitute non-fat plain yogurt or non-fat mayonnaise in popular picnic salads.

    Choose lean cuts of meat for grilling. Try ground turkey for burgers or marinated flank steak.

    Pack plenty of fresh vegetables and low fat dips for crunching, air popped popcorn for munching, and a variety of interesting diet drinks for sipping.

  • If you want to take a walk across Florida, like from Pensacola to Key West, plan on having enough shoes for 817 miles or 4,313,760 feet or, in the case of Benny Collins, for 1,734,845 steps.

    Collins is not counting every step he takes in his quest to walk the length of Florida, but he is counting on folks along the way to share an experience, prayer with God, and help Bushnell Assembly of God build a new sanctuary.

  • Bessie Cornelia “Nelia” Dempsey, 62, of Steinhatchee, died at home on Sunday, March 21, 2010.  Born in Lake Park, Ga., Mrs. Dempsey moved, as a child to Live Oak.  

    She worked at A&W Drive-in as a carhop for 15 years before joining Oxidental Chemical.  Retiring from Oxidental in 1990, she moved to Steinhatchee to fulfill her lifelong dream of hunting and fishing and made many, many friends, which became her extended family.

  •    Spring is here and the garden soon will be producing tons of vegetables and fruits, or  perhaps you are planning to take advantage of farmer’s markets, road-side stands or you-pick operations to buy a large amount of food to put away for later in the year.

       Preserving some of that food  will give you great taste and good nutrition and will also make memories for a lifetime.
