  • Suwannee Valley Players announces the opening for its upcoming holiday production of “Not a Creature Was Stirring ... not even a moose,” a comedy written by Pat Cook.

  • Ninety-year-old Olga, a long-term resident at Tri-County Nursing Home, in Trenton, looked a little confused when a small group of people entered her room asking questions about expecting visitors Thursday.

    But her confusion melted when she saw that two of the group’s members were short, hairy and of the canine variety.

    “I love animals,” she said as she caressed one of the dogs sitting on her bed, “ and they are so adorable.”

  • Three miles from Williston off a bumpy hilly road, a passage through scrub and pasture leads the unsuspecting traveler to the utopian sanctuary that Dr. Raymond Webber calls home.

    More than 400 species of plants thrive on his 100-acre bit of paradise that has been more than 16 years in the making.

    “Not many people in Florida have their house built into the side of a cliff,” Webber, an endodonist by trade, explains as he begins his trek through the assorted gardens that he has designed.

    Indeed, the vista from this porch is breathtakingly beautiful.
