  • What it is that we must remember

     This week marks the beginning of turkey season in my area. After months away from matching wits with a big gobbler, I’m excited to hear his familiar sound echo throughout the woods. His voice is unique to all of hunting and yet is so recognizable. It really doesn’t take a great hunter to know when he is in turkey country. He does not have to look for the signs, only listen for the sounds. He will let you know where he is hanging out.

    I am proud of the fifty or sixty people who stayed until 2 a.m. today to object to the Tarmac Mine.

  • Wasted time at Tarmac hearing

    On April 4, I and about 100 other concerned folks wasted 7 hours of our lives speaking at a Levy County planning board public hearing against approval for a Special Exception for a 100-year mega-mine in southwest Levy county.  Why was our time simply wasted?

    INGLIS — A routine traffic stop turned deadly Thursday evening when the driver, a 30-year-old Dunnellon man, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Levy County Road 337, about 5 miles south of C.R. 121.
