  • The Rev. James L. Snyder  

    Everybody has places where they are the most comfortable. When a person (Yours Truly) is out of their comfortable place there is a certain, what should I say, discomfort. There are two places where I am the most comfortable.

    The first place is behind my computer writing. The second place is behind my pulpit preaching.

     The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Sept. 30 at the Levy County Quilt Museum. We have had a busy week. We ended up taking the clothes to Cross City. There is a place there, next door to the Dixie County Advocate, that takes everything.

     We’re about to get everything put back where it belongs. We still have a small leak in the roof but when that is taken care of, we will finish up.

    We held the first meeting of our new year on Sept. 8. President Eileen Nuce started the meeting by asking what we did during the summer. Two members had serious health problems; they were President Eileen and Carolyn Agazarm. It was good to know they are doing better now. Elsie Neal has continued to make a good recovery from knee replacement surgery. 

    Some of the members traveled during the summer. Delores Darpino returned from her trip with unusual souvenirs, two adorable kittens.

    Outdoor Truths  

    Hunting can be hard. I have witnessed this many times. These last three days were another example. Each day started at four o’clock in the morning and we arrived back home at about ten each night. Most nights we got to bed at about midnight. I’m tired. 

  • Peace Lutheran Church resumed Sunday morning Adult Bible Study and Sunday School, at 9 a.m.  The adult class is currently studying the parables.  Everyone is welcome.

    Other Bible study groups meet on Wednesday at 10 a.m., and at 6:30 p.m.  The 6:30 group enjoys a potluck meal prior to Bible study.

    Peace Lutheran Church (the church on the hill) is five miles north of Dunnellon, at 7201 S. Highway 41.  Sunday worship is at 10 a.m.

  • The tragedy of breast cancer goes far beyond the thousands of lives it affects and ends every year.

    What makes the diagnosis of the disease especially heartbreaking is the fact that breast cancer is treatable.

    With that in mind, a lot of people are turning to pink to remind everyone that this is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

  • “Blake” is a 3-year-old neutered male, smooth coated border collie. He is black with tri-colored markings. He is current on his shots, wormed and micro chipped. On the recommendation of a dog agility trainer, “Blake” must be placed with a home that will use him in sheep herding, Frisbee or agility competition. He is a beautiful happy dog looking for a loving family that must have a job for him.

  • Workforce Connection’s new “Learn and Earn” program helps make hiring and training new employees affordable through subsidized on-the-job training and paid internships.
