    A Wakulla Springs man charged with drunken driving is learning the hard way that one should not mess with a grandmother from Old Town.

  • Bringing broadband to Levy might broaden horizons

    Bringing wireless internet to Levy County will provide a major boost to the economy, officials with the newly formed North Florida Broadband Authority say.

  • Log Cabin Quilters

    The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, August 20 at the Levy County Quilt Museum.   

    What a wonderful day we had with six members from the Joyful Heart Quilters near Branford.  We started there in 1991 in a small building and now they meet in the Fire Department where they have more room and are also meeting every week.  We also help them when we take quilts and crafts to the fair in Tampa.

    More fabric has been brought in and we hope we can get rid of it.
