Good News: Here I go again...

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

I miss spending lazy Fridays chatting with Winnelle Horne on the porch of the Levy County Quilt Museum.

She certainly tolerated my foolishness while educating me on Levy County culture.

One thing the late founder often said to me, ”You're certainly opinionated.”

“Um huh. You want me to leave now?”


But right about now, she might want to come back and snatch me up by the ear because I am going to give out an opinion that will rile feathers – something she warned against.

It's my opinion that the Levy Department of Public Safety needs to stop being the whipping boy of municipal fire chiefs and politicians eager to gain points with voters by saying outrageous things –especially about the department's headquarters.

After all, David Knowles has been gone five months and we have a new department director starting in September. It would be nice to have a fresh start.

But nooooo.

From bashing the amount of the fire assessment at $90 per residential parcel per year to how much the equipment costs nothing escapes criticism at the DPS.
