    “He liked to party until God took him in,” Carnegie, a Raleigh resident, said. “And he was blind, really blind, until God restored his sight.”

  • The sunlight strained at the edges between clusters of bromeliad-laden tupelo trees, water oaks and cabbage palms.  

    Thin shafts of light breaking through the canopy revealed flitting birds and clouds of mosquitoes hovering over black water dotted with the heart-shaped leaves of cow lilies.

    Snakes, in search of prey, slithered in and out of the murk below, and fiddler crabs scurried over rocks and tiny islands of gnarled tree roots.

    Book signing at Knotts Library

  • A few years, ago Earl Damann, of Williston, saw an article in the paper about a new group seeking volunteers.

    “Oh, I think it would be fun,” he told his wife Stella. He called the telephone number.

    They joined the fledgling group Citizens on Patrol, and after more than 7,250 hours of service to the Levy County Sheriff’s Office he’s giving up the fun because a heredity kidney disease is forcing him to the sidelines. That’s a little over 906 days of 8-hour shifts.
