Today's Features

  • College can be such a daunting experience…living away from home for the first time, trying to figure out where you fit in, learning to adapt to such a totally different environment. For local retired teacher Mary Gene Bailey French, joining a sorority was a real life saver! And recently, she received a certificate and white violet charm, recognizing her almost-75 years of membership in Zeta Tau Alpha.

    If it weren’t for the gauze pressure bandage around her knee, you’d never know that Morriston’s Paige Douglas is in a fight for her life.

  • Karon Johnson’s smile is the first thing that greets you when he enters a room and it never leaves his face, even when sharing the adversity that plagues his life.

    While he is an imposing figure of a man, his voice is soft much like his demeanor. However, it is that smile that speaks loudly and proudly of who he is. 

    Reared in Dunnellon,  Johnson graduated with honors in 1997 and set out to work in his chosen career of juvenile corrections.

  • It was a feat that ends up on morning TV talk shows.
    Monday, an 8-year-old Jack Russell out on her afternoon bathroom break disappeared.
    “I’d seen a turtle the day before,” said the dog’s owner, Patty Hatch, “and thought she was following it.”
    Indeed she had.
    Penny, the curious Jack Russell, had wandered the way of the turtle and somehow became trapped in the turtle/gopher hole.
