  • 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

  • Is the end near?

    Has the Big Guy upstairs got your attention yet?

    Does a lightening bolt have to smack you in the head to get you started wondering if maybe this Bible stuff with its prophecies is something to worry about?

    Good thing he's a patient kind of guy. Remember Noah and Lot? They got the message just in time. 

    Will you get the message just in time?

  • Veterans denied by legislature

    On receiving news of the three Veterans being denied road memorials by the Tallahassee politicians, I am not really surprised. 

  • Tarmac has a leg to stand on

  • Impressed with letter about hospital

    I was impressed with Genevieve Hannah's Letter to the Editor on April 21, about the hospital.
    I support the new hospital in Chiefland as a real necessary project. We should continue signing petitions and mailing them to Frank Schupp and Ameris Health Systems to get us a hospital in Chiefland and our three counties.
    Send all petitions to:
    Frank Schuup
    Ameris Health Systems
