  • Dog's treatment bothers conscience

     As an individual who is deeply concerned about the humane treatment and care of pets, I must admit it angers me  greatly to see an animal tied to a short chain and not given any consideration during this time of extremely cold and or rainy weather.

  • Where was the help?

    This weekend a tragedy occurred in Tucson, Arizona. Six persons were shot  and 14 others were wounded by a deranged individual. We witnessed the tragedy, we heard the interviews and the nation is in shock. After listening to many media reports it is very plain to see this individual reached out in many ways to get the help that he needed.  I ask where were the people who could have prevented this terrible event from happening?

  • A word on local politics
  • Surprised about Rosewood

    I was surprised to read that Dr. Marvin Dunn plans to go ahead with his Rosewood event even though the Levy County Commissioners denied his petition for a special event’s permit.  Many events are held in Levy County each year and the sponsors of those events have no difficulty applying for and providing the county with all required information to ensure a safe environment for all involved.

  • Wake up, America

     Now that the elections are over, the hard work starts.

  • Annual celebration a success

     The National Wildlife Refuge System celebrated National Wildlife Refuge Week across the country.  Inviting you to join in, refuges hosted open house events, trail walks, wildlife programs, and bird walks throughout the over 100 million acre system of public lands tasked to provide habitat for the present and future generations.

  • Children's sports should be fun

     Soccer to a 4 or 5 year old should be fun. Coaches should remember their age when introducing the game to them. Parents should remember that it is only a game and a time of fun for their little ones.

  • Many thank yous from soldier's mother

  • Comments on Paynes Prairie plan

     Those who were at the September Cracker Chapter (FTA) meeting are aware of the discussion about major changes that are about to be implemented at Paynes Prairie. I asked one of the members of "Friends of the Prairie" to provide the address of a park official so that we might voice our individual concerns about the change. The following is her response:

  • Motorists should look out for bikers

    Saturday, Sept. 25, around 3 p.m, a man named Bob was killed.
    No  big deal, after all he was on a motorcycle. That's how the court system seems to view this useless and not so significant death.
    But on Sept. 25 around 3 o'clock our brother and friend Biker Bob was killed in an accident with a 2002 Ford pickup. The man in the pickup went by the auction that was on State Road 26, wanted to get back to it, and made a U-turn in front of Robert J. Carrier. A man is dead, and that's the cold harsh truth.
