  • Letter: Python program benefits more than native snakes

    Editor:

    As manager of Florida’s fish and wildlife resources, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is diligent in protecting native species and habitats. When an exotic species invades our natural landscape, it is our duty to do everything possible to ensure those invaders do not expand their range and harm the fragile balance of Florida’s unique and abundant wildlife.

  • Yes, Theresa, there will be Christmas lights.

     You gotta’ give it to Vice Mayor Theresa Barron, she can hang in there with the best of 'em. Take this Christmas lights thing. Barron wants the city to buy Christmas lights instead of leasing them.

    Total cost to adorn light poles on US Highway 27A and U.S. Highway 19 is about $14,000.     And that's just for part of the town. If she could get 100 light poles decorated, it would cost about $23,000. And they come with a three-year manufacturer's warranty. That's if the city had bought them in July.    

  • Letter: Thank you to the community

    I would like to thank family, friends, organizations, and all other supporters for donations and encouragement in helping me attend the College Connection at the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale. This summer program gave me great insight on what attending this school would be like upon high school graduation. Each day I was engaged in activities with excellent instructors who were currently involved in such professional fields as game design and computer animation. I really did enjoy having hands-on experience in the department of Computer Animation.

  • Sarah Jane--part one

    By DANIEL J. VANCE

    Following a distressing situation that would have emotionally crushed most of us, 38-year-old Patrick Donohue of New York City has been able to redeem a great amount of good from it to benefit millions of Americans. I consider what Donohue has been doing one of the most important, largely untold stories in America today.

  • Letter: Wishes new commissioner the best

    I want to wish "Cracker" Johnson well as he begins his chore as a County Commissioner.

        As a former Commission Candidate for District 1 in 2008, I campaigned along side of Mr. Blitch and Mr. Macri and they ran a good hard campaign. They spent a lot of money and walked many miles on the campaign trail.

        In my opinion, These two gentlemen should have been appointed to the two empty seats by the Governor. They both garnered a lot of votes.

  • She skips the Drama, preferring to eat cake

    Drama is defined an exciting, emotional or unexpected series of events or set of circumstances. Most of us know that. But there are so many of us who live it. Drama. With a capital “D”.

    In any environment, whether it’s school, work, family or social, there’s always Drama. Most people keep it to themselves, handle it privately and we never know what is going on.

    But then there are those who over exaggerate everything and thrive on the crisis of the minute. You know them too.

  • Letter: Thank you from Abraham Blitch

    Dear Levy County,

        Hello, it’s me again, the short, fat, hairy legged guy with the big hat. Words will never express the gratitude my family and I have for you.

        We must say "thank you" again to the 8,818 Voters last November. We were humbled and blessed then and continue to be today by those who have fought for almost nine more months for my Appointment. Thank You for your prayers and words of encouragement.

  • Letter: Not happy with Senate choices

    To the Editor:

        The resignation of Senator Mel Martinez is insignificant since he was a lackluster RINO (Republican In Name Only) and did not properly represent the best interests of the State of Florida and the United States.
