  • 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. 

  • Last line of defense

    Each morning cases come across my desk for review and I see the ways that folks are victimized by others seeking money through a variety of sources.
    The gamut ranges from charitable contributions to classified ads and the result is that frequently folks are getting diminished or zero return on their money. This, in a time when money is universally tight. If we are to avoid these scams, we need to get smarter about our responses.
