  • Hello all you river lovers!

    Don’t let these low water levels discourage you, especially on the upper river.  It’s a perfect time for collecting trash that is normally inaccessible.  You can work on foot relatively close to your put-in and take-out points if it’s too low for paddling.  You’ll still get a lot and it’s worthwhile doing. 

  • Dixie Historical Society needs help

    The Dixie County Historical Society is submitting a grant application to the Plum Creek Foundation for funds to replace two air conditioning and heating units in the auditorium of the Dixie County Cultural Center, known locally as the “Old Old Town School.”
    We are seeking your affirmation of support for this project.

  • Happy about Army museum

    For more than 236 years, we Americans have owed our freedoms to the men and women of the United States Army. Now, at long last, the American soldier will be honored with the national Museum of the U.S. Army near our nations capitol.

  • Sierra Club opposes garbage burners

    The Suwannee/ St. Johns Sierra Club opposes any new waste-to-energy facilities in the North Central Florida region. We are a conservation group and strongly support conservation of energy and natural resources.  Not fuel burning facilities.

  • Tourney Thanks

    I would like to take this opportunity to express my extreme gratitude to all the local businesses that donated prizes for the raffle at the first annual Suwannee River Breast Cancer Awareness Association Charity Open Bass Tournament. The tournament was held at Clay Landing in Chiefland on Saturday, July 25, 2011.

  • A message from Commissioner Drew

    Dear Levy County taxpayer,

  • Thanks from the Patrols

    Once again I have ventured to Washington, D.C., with the Levy County Safety Patrol from Williston Elementary School. We, in Bus 1, were led by Mrs. Lisa Posteraro and School Resource Officer Grant Sandlin, who kept us organized, entertained and safe (Bus 2 was headed up by Frank McKoy and Joelene Vining).

  • Tourism would go up in smoke

    Dixie Waste Services, under a new bunch of promoters, is attempting again to build an incinerator on the Eastern edge of Dixie County. Despite continued objections from the public, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has decided to grant another two-year extension of their Air Construction Permit.

  • Showing their true colors

    The BOCC showed their true colors June 21 when Commissioner Ryan Bell pulled a last minute, non-agenda item for the removal of Toni Collins from the Planning Commission. It was interesting how two commissioners, Chad Johnson and Danny Stevens, felt that it was Bell's district so he should be able to remove and replace as was his desire.
