  • 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. 

  • Mad about road

    Regarding the article from June 9, citing alleged "illegal road construction in Cedar Key Heights." I would like to correct the following information.
    1. The article stated that SRWMD said I claimed the road was grandfathered in because it was built in 2008. It should have read that the road was platted in 1928 and is considered pre-act, not subject to present-day permitting. The only laws it is subject to are those that were in existence in 1928.

  • Save our Wednesday nights (and our youth)

    Dear Tri-County Area Citizens,
    Through the years, our communities have maintained the long-time tradition of reserving Wednesday nights for purposes of faith. This has been particularly helpful with respect to our youth. Local churches of all denominations have taken this opportunity to instill values of virtue and service in the lives of our young people. These core values are the underpinnings of wholesome family lives and harmonious communities. The tradition has served us well.

  • Congrats Bronson youth teams
