Today's Opinions

  • Dog's treatment bothers conscience

     As an individual who is deeply concerned about the humane treatment and care of pets, I must admit it angers me  greatly to see an animal tied to a short chain and not given any consideration during this time of extremely cold and or rainy weather.

  • My resolution about resolutions

     I’m really not one for the New Year’s resolutions, as you can probably tell by the date. Yes, it is Jan. 13. That’s why I don’t make resolutions like: I’m going to write a column for the Jan. 6 issue of the Beacon on the merits of New Year's resolutions and/or procrastinating.

  • Our View: We should be proud of GED program

     It's a shame they don't hold the General Education Diploma commencement in a more public place than the conference room at the College of Central Florida's Levy Center.

  • Where was the help?

    This weekend a tragedy occurred in Tucson, Arizona. Six persons were shot  and 14 others were wounded by a deranged individual. We witnessed the tragedy, we heard the interviews and the nation is in shock. After listening to many media reports it is very plain to see this individual reached out in many ways to get the help that he needed.  I ask where were the people who could have prevented this terrible event from happening?

  • Nosey says...

     For seniors, reality is not always pleasant, and what we may be facing this coming year could be a real disaster.

  • Surprised about Rosewood

    I was surprised to read that Dr. Marvin Dunn plans to go ahead with his Rosewood event even though the Levy County Commissioners denied his petition for a special event’s permit.  Many events are held in Levy County each year and the sponsors of those events have no difficulty applying for and providing the county with all required information to ensure a safe environment for all involved.
