  • 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.

  • Thank you from the Worthingtons

    The Worthington Family would like to take this time and opportunity to thank our family, friends and Concord Baptist Church for all their prayers, food, flowers and visits during the time of our loss of my husband, father and grandfather.  Thank you again for everything.

  • Support Amendment 4

    My support for Amendment 4 to Florida’s Constitution known as the “Hometown Democracy Amendment” is very much related to my professional experiences over the last 60 years as a practicing architect, planner, participating citizen and educator. I have long observed myths related to continued population increase and economic growth in Florida.

  • Flood assistance possible for Levy County residents

    During our most recent flooding events I was contacted by many people in Levy County who were asking for help with recovery. After meeting with numerous individuals and homeowner groups I was able to bring local organizations together to help some of our residents. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Central Florida Community Action Agency, Inglis /Yankeetown Lion’s Club, Master’s Hand Food Pantry and Daystar for their contributions. All were able, in their own ways, to improve the lives of those in need and help them through difficult times.
