  •  H.W. of Cedar Key writes: “You’ve been writing about golf carts lately, but I have a beef about another kind of nuisance on the roadways: bicycles. There’s this guy who rides his bicycle about in the middle of the road all the time and I’m tired of it. Isn’t he supposed to get out of MY way, not the other way around? Who has the right-of-way on State Road 24 coming into town…my car or his bike?”

    Dear H. W.: 

  • Levy County District One Taxpayers are still without representation on the County Commission Board. We continue to pay taxes, but are not represented. 

  • With this being Thanksgiving week, I always take the time and reflect back and think of all the things that I am truly thankful for. 

  • In a recent column, I began shedding light on what I see as a mountain of research that effectively debunks the established myth that 75 percent of marriages involving a child with a disability end in divorce. In my review of the research literature, I learned marriages involving a child with a disability have about the same divorce rate as all marriages.

  • “It's more than just a bunch of ‘deluded kids’ now. It's the impossible-to-deny men and women who've found themselves crushed under the heel of an unaccountable and out-of-control corporate culture -- of those consistently on the winning end of the rigged, zero-sum game that success in America has gruesomely morphed into at the beginning of the 21st century. They're part of the vanishing middle-class.”

     

  • The Chiefland FFA Alumni would like to give a big "Thank You" to everyone for their support in our most recent fund raiser, our BBQ dinner, making it a huge success. 

    Thanks,

  • Levy County, 

  •  In my first decade involved in disability issues, I repeatedly heard people claim that marriages involving parents of children with disabilities had a divorce rate of more than 75 percent. So when I began my education leading to becoming a licensed professional counselor, I chose that particular topic as an area of research interest to see if this really was true. What I learned should surprise you.

  •  The most fertile source of insight is hindsight and you never know how far you’ve come until you look back on where you’ve been. During the last few years I’ve had numerous opportunities to look back over my progress, sometimes it’s with humor, sometimes it’s with pride and always with amazement over how I thought issues would turn out and how things really unfolded. 

  •  My name is Beth Warren and I am a recent graduate of Chiefland High School. Instead of going to college in the fall, like a lot of my peers, I will be going to Ecuador, South America.

    C. C. of Cedar Key writes: “I wrote to you last month about being able to drive my golf cart around the city of Cedar Key without a driver’s license even though my license was suspended, and you told me I couldn’t because it was a motor vehicle and I had to have a valid driver’s license. If that’s true, why do I see kids who don’t have licenses driving golf carts all over the place? If they can do it, why can’t I?”

  • As organizer of the Center for Rural Affairs Land Link program, which matches beginning farmers with landowners, I talk to beginning farmers every day.  
    Their situations are diverse but they all share a common dream of operating a farm or ranch.
    Our Land Link participant list contains over 250 beginners and fewer than 20 landowners.  
    Recognizing this "bottle-neck" in the match making process, I encourage beginners to get creative in their search for land.
