  • 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.

  • Levy County will have less stray and feral cats breeding on its streets thanks to a local Trap-Neuter-Return program.

    On Thursday, Oct. 29, members of Sheltering Hands Inc., an organization that rescues and finds homes for pets in Marion and Levy Counties, received about 39 feral cats needing to be spayed or neutered.

  • A local Levy County group joined the fight against two global epidemics — hunger and obesity — by participating in the "Lose For Good" campaign. 

    As local Weight Watchers members lose weight, they’ve also been collecting food to donate to Bronson United Methodist Church to help their neighbors in need. Within seven weeks, the group lost 854.6 pounds, and collected 488 pounds of food. 

  • O.C. Graham was once like the rest of us. He liked to party, said Aljoseph Carnegie, president of the Tri-County Branch of the NAACP at its 19th Annual Freedom Fund Banquet at Tommy Usher Community Center in Chiefland on Oct. 24.

    “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.”
