  • Cappy's Corner: What I've learned thus far

    OK, so I've been here at the paper for almost a month now and there are a handful of things I've learned in a short time.

    For the record, even though I may have learned a few things, I still know next-to-nothing about Levy County. But I am trying to learn more every day.

    What I've learned thus far:

  • Bronson bags 3rd in own tourney

    Bronson dug in when most 1-9 teams would’ve given in.

    Instead of watching another game slip away in the third quarter, the Eagles flew together to finally flip the script on an opponent en route to a 61-56 win against Bell in the third-place game of the Bronson Holiday Tournament on Thursday.

  • Cappy's Corner: The ball is in your court

    This is my cry for help. This is my plea to you — the reader, the fan, the coach, the parent, the teacher, the administrator, the classmate, the grandma and even the players themselves— to take over ownership of this sports section.

    This is YOUR newspaper about YOUR community, but are you getting everything you want? Are you seeing the best possible stories from the Levy County world of sports every week? 

  • Carter gets early break

  • Financial press abuzz with Progress Energy merger talk

    The balloon went up on Friday that Progress Energy possibly was talking to another utility, Duke Energy, about a merger that would form the largest utility in the United States.
    The news first hit a Wall Street financial-reporting site called DealReporter.com. It named no source, but the news spread to newspaper websites in Raleigh, N.C. – the city of Progress Energy’s headquarters – and Charlotte, N.C. – home of Duke Energy.
