  • Paradox

    By Ray Sparrow

    Guest Columist

    I looked up the definition of "PARADOX" and it was something that is seemingly senseless, illogical and self contradictory. A picture on the internet shows two girls, side by side. One is dressed in full camouflage, holding a Christian bible in one hand, an AR-15 in the other hand. The other girl is decked out in typical Muslim garb holding a Quran in one hand, an AK-47 in the other, indicating that they are ready to engage in violent acts with guns in defense of their religious ideology. Now that screams paradox.

  • Superintendent is appreciative

    To the editor:

    Aug. 10 was a wonderful start to another great school year in Levy County. The sun was shining, students were excited and teachers were prepared to open the school house doors to 5,500 students.

  • Something to think about

    To the editor:

    A political race is gaining momentum that is very close to my heart. Running for Superintendent of Levy County Schools are Assistant Superintendent of Administration Jeff Edison, who has served under Superintendent Robert O. Hastings and the previous superintendent, and Jerry Lawrence – a veteran educator of 26 years and school administrator who understands the heartbeat of our teachers, students, and parents. 

  • Thank you for remembering

    We want to express our sincere appreciation for the outpouring of love and support given us during the loss of our mother and grandmother, Helen Hiers Usher. We have wonderful memories and even better friends to sustain us during this time. Thank you for sharing so many of your memories and stories of and about her with us. They truly warm our hearts.

    Lovingly,

    Ken, Lynetta & John Korey Griner

  • Levy's loss is great

    Last week Levy County lost a remarkable lady, Helen Usher.

    I was honored and privileged to have her in my life as a teacher, mentor, family friend and lifetime acquaintance.

    Mrs. Usher was a Bronson High alumni, in class with my Uncle Jr. Jerrels, my eighth grade math teacher who prepared me in later life, when starting my studies in engineering. Her extra help and attention, were largely responsible for me being able to obtain many of my goals.

  • Readers sound off on Social Security, atheism and more

    Saving babies saves Social Security

    It is reported that in 2033 Social Security will be bankrupt. It takes 16 working people to keep one person’s checks coming. Guess where 300,000 a year of that workforce goes? Aborted by Planned Parenthood so the parts can be sold. That is viewing the carnage from the financial point.

  • Giving credit

    Every year the Women of the Moose Chapter 494 put together 12 dinner boxes for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, for delivery, via the Sheriff’s Office, to families in need in the Tri County area.

    The turkeys were donated by the men of Suwannee River Moose 325. The canned goods were donated by members Kenny and Jane Grawcock and the Women of the Moose Chapter 494 donated the fresh produce.

    The boxes were filled on the 24th of November by members Art and Ginny Perricone, Recorder Kathy Anderson and Senior Regent Jane Duehring.

  • Thank you

    It takes a lot of hard work to make a town’s Christmas Festival all come together. The Greater Chiefland Area Chamber of Commerce would like to thank all those who worked with us to pull off our 12th Annual Christmas Festival this year!

  • A good bill

    A joint resolution (HJR 767 and SJR 942) has been filed to restore the Commissioner of Education to an elected position. Since 2003, the top education official in the state has been appointed by the State Board of Education which is appointed by the governor rather than elected by the people.

    If adopted by the Legislature, this Constitutional Amendment would be placed on the November 2016 General Election ballot and would need at least 60 percent voter approval to take effect.
