  • Economic growth for Levy County

    Southern Levy County has been targeted by various industries and the potential for growth in this part of the County may become a reality. There are also several other  things just several miles south of the border in Citrus County that may bring opportunity  for jobs and an increased tax base for Levy County.

  • Thanks to the community

    An epic thank you to our community for its support in making the first ever Epic End Summer Bash a successful event. There were many happy faces and delighted squeals from excited children. Happy school year to all.

  • Letter to Rick Turner

    I was saddened and a bit taken back when I read your statement from the last school board meeting: “This legislative body is telling us where their care is, and that’s into charter schools, and not public schools.”  This statement clearly showed a lack of understanding regarding charter schools as well as a lack of compassion for the parents who choose these alternatives for their children.  So please allow me to clear up a few things.
