Today's Opinions

  • Deserved honors

    Growing up in Levy County has provided me with many friendships and memories that have lasted through the years.
    It was a great pleasure to see my good friends, H.C. Henderson and his late wife Faye, given much deserved recognition with Citizens of the Year and H.C. being named Alumni of the Year for the Levy County Schools Foundation.

  • All this vet needs in company and a ride

    Charlie Hendricks is 86 and in recent months has retired to his granddaughter's place outside of Trenton.
    Born in Indiana, he, like many other folks, came to Florida seeking his fortune after marrying a woman whose parents lived outside Sebring.
    They came in the late 1960s and settled around Anna Maria Island where he and his wife sold real estate. Later on, they opened an office in Dixie County.

  • I am part of a B-I-G corporation

    There is a hot little competition going on now that you may not know about. Maybe you did if you read the little item that said this newspaper and its employees are part of a big corporation, Landmark Media Enterprises.
    We are. I am not ashamed of it. It's not some dirty little secret.
    But why is it that that information is being spread about now?
    Money. County tax money.

  • Today in Levy County History: The military dilemma

    By Toni C. Collins
    Levy County Historian
    A problem that has faced military tacticians throughout history is how to effectively move men and equipment to areas of conflict. When Gen. Zachary Taylor became commander of the forces fighting the Seminole Indians in the Territory of Florida in 1838, he quickly devised a scheme to facilitate a more rapid response to emergency situations.

  • Thank you

    I wish to thank all the contributors and participants, volunteers and staff for making the 2012 Florida State NASP Tournament a very special event.  First of all, the kids, of course, the best bunch of kids you could possibly gather in one place, they were terrific, as were their coaches.  Thanks to Safari Club International of North Florida, Tom Powell and Ray Pringle, Bear Archery Products of Gainesville, Neil Byce and Eric Godkin, Morrell Targets, Bernie and Dale Morrell and Woods ‘n Water Magazine for their contributions to the live event.
