Good News: Loving living in Levy County

-A A +A

Tell us your favorite thing about residing here

By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

I know there’s a perception that media folks are always critical of everything. But I hope it’s not so.

And I have had folks in Levy express disdain for folks who move here for its wonderful atmosphere, or any of a variety of reasons, then promptly turn around and want to change it into wherever they came from. It’s a valid complaint.

But I realized recently how wholeheartedly I have come to embrace Levy County when I cringed at the responses of two job applicants to the question: What do you know about Levy County?

“Well I’ve been to Cedar Key.”

I know Stanly Bird of Island House Hotel would have been gratified to hear that response. During a Tourist Development Council meeting a while back, Bird said, “Cedar Key is the Disney of Levy County.”

I know this will just infuriate some folks, but Cedar Key is not all of Levy County.

Those job applicants, who did not win the nod, showed their ignorance about the glories of Levy County beyond Cedar Key.

And, heavens knows, they had to pass a few of them on their way to Cedar Key or the job interview.
