  • It was a sweltering 89 degrees Monday afternoon and along the US 27 corridor east of Williston there were few people stirring in their yards or farms.

    Most residents, still at work or resting in their recliners, were planning on what the night’s dinner would be.

    István (Steven) and Ferenc (Frank) Ivanics were more concerned about where they would lay their heads for the night, as they waged a battle against the seemingly endless batallion of mosquitos.

  • Amy Dixon proved Tuesday that you’re never too old to shake your booty to the music you love. Dixon, a Jamaica native who has lived in the U.S. since 1945, turned 95 Tuesday and celebrated with family and friends at Williston Rehab. After the cake presentation, Dixon asked for the music to be turned to reggae and as soon as it started, she got up and busted some moves. Dixon has lived in Florida for 30 years, coming here from New York where she was a dietitian at St. Vincent’s Hospital.
