    You’ve probably been on the web, and it’s likely that you’ve attended a seminar. But, have you ever attended a “webinar?” We recommend that you do.
    Social Security offers a selection of webinars at www.socialsecurity.gov/webinars. You’re invited to attend any of them, anytime. Class is always in session — past webinars are available for you to view at any time. The information can be valuable, but the cost is free.

  • Social Security

    You’ve made your decision: although you’re eligible to collect Social Security payments, you’re going to keep working and delay receiving your retirement benefits.
    But don’t forget about Medicare.
    Even if you decide to wait until after you are age 65 to apply for retirement benefits, most people should apply for Medicare coverage at age 65. If you’d like to begin your Medicare coverage, you should apply within four months of reaching age 65.

  • Tarmac — It's about water

    Tarmac wins, Levy loses. A few years from now, Levy commissioners and planners will be quoting Bill Clinton who, when asked about NAFTA, said, "It sounded like a pretty good deal at the time.”
    I came from Manatee County 26 years ago. I saw what happened there. Water wells freely flowed for farmers, no pumps, when I was a kid.

  • Tarmac good for Levy

    My husband and I live off State Road 337 southeast of Bronson and have been residents of Levy County since 2002.
    Since this time we have seen businesses come and businesses go in Bronson, Williston and also in Chiefland.
     It is the people who live and work locally who make our communities strong, and jobs locally are needed to keep these people here.

  • Commission still unsure about water ordinance

    City commissioners made no decision Monday night on approving a draft of the city's new mandatory water connection ordinance.
    The ordinance, which received its first reading at Monday's regular meeting, requires city residents living within 300 feet of a city water line to get connected. Residents living farther than 300 feet are exempt, though they would still have to pay the minimum monthly water charge. The ordinance recently came back from the city planning board after objections about the original ordinance having no distance requirement.
