  • Secrets unearthed during archaeology month

    March is Florida Archaeology Month sponsored by the Florida Anthropological Society and its partners that protect archaeological sites throughout the state. Each year the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge hosts walks at its Shell Mound site made famous by the spectacular collection of pottery in Bradenton’s South Florida Museum.
    The last of two Ranger-led walks at Shell Mound is 10 a.m. March 25. Meet the Ranger in the small parking area next to the Shell Mound Trailhead to learn the history of the mound, its native people and native plants.

    The Lower Suwannee and Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuges were represented at the State Fair by Refuge Ranger Pam Darty.

  • Need for hospital in Chiefland

     I, for one, would appreciate knowing where Noel Desmond picked up the statistics of how many people would use a hospital in Chiefland.  He states people would rather drive 50 miles to Gainesville for medical assistance.

  • Wanting a hospital

    Well, I guess we don’t need a hospital. Noel Desmond says so.
    You know what, I am so tired of going to Gainesville for a chest X-ray or a lot of things we could get right here. It costs me $30 for gas.  And it’s a $35 co-pay from my insurance, plus lunch for my daughter, who has to take me on her day off. It’s the same mileage to Crystal River or Williston.

  • Fly in the ointment

    A Mr. Noel Desmond seems to be the fly in the ointment on several projects important to the people of Levy County.

  • Go tobacco-free Levy

     I appreciate your thorough coverage of community events and happenings.  Your publication has served to encourage good will and good health in the tri-county area. In that regard, let me encourage your readers to acknowledge and participate in Tobacco Free Florida Week (March 28–April 2).

  • Thankful for jobs

    I have lived in Levy County for most of my life and own a 265-acre farm in the south part of the county on Highway 19. If constructed, the proposed nuclear power plant and King Road Mine will be my close neighbors. So, I believe my say in this is important.
    Levy County is a wonderful place to live. Everyone who comes here wants to stay here, and those who are born here don’t want to leave. But right now, there’s no work and no opportunity for people to stay here and make a living.
