I am part of a B-I-G corporation

I am not ashamed

By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

There is a hot little competition going on now that you may not know about. Maybe you did if you read the little item that said this newspaper and its employees are part of a big corporation, Landmark Media Enterprises.
We are. I am not ashamed of it. It's not some dirty little secret.
But why is it that that information is being spread about now?
Money. County tax money.
The Levy County Journal and my newspaper want the money used to advertise county meetings, public hearings and other information it wants you to know. Others are also stalking the tax money.
The county has decided to ask for competitive pricing on those ads.
At the same time, the county commission is looking at adopting an ordinance that gives preference in such bids to local businesses, defining "local" as a business that has either maintained an office in Levy for at least one year prior to the bid being issued or one that employs at least four employees who have resided in Levy County for one year prior to the bid being issued.
The Journal's Andy Andrews asked the commission if this meant Walmart could bid and win county business.
