Before the sun makes it over the long leaf pines in the forest, the ice is already in the cooler. Equipment for the day’s work is loaded into the truck along with other essentials, but nothing that would attract bats.

  • This rainbow was straddling Levy County from east to west and was visible from Chiefland to Williston on Friday, July 11.

    If you look closely, you might see a fainter double rainbow above the more visible one. Forget the science of why the rainbow formed. Maybe Levy can be our fabled pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
