  • Carpe Diem - seize the day - that's a relevant idea this season in Florida.

    On several recent occasions I seized the day and observed other animals doing the same. My first foray began when I called a couple who live outside of Montbrook. They generously agreed to take me on a walk around their property.

  • Get all "wrapped" up in art!

    On Saturday, May 3, the GFWC Williston Woman's Club will sponsor a first of its kind: W illiston R egional A rt P romotion. Formerly the annual Williston Arts and Crafts Festival held under the shade of the old oak tree at Perkins State Bank, this year's event will feature the work of 15 artists who will set up at the air-conditioned Club House from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. The focus of the juried show (entrants will be screened) is on selling with no judging or ribbons; the top asking price for any of the framed and ready to hang pieces is $350.

  • This year's the Williston Woman's Club's annual production to raise money for The March of Dimes has it all: comedy, drama, elaborate hats, singing, dancing, and an opportunity for audience participation.

    "Trouble at the Tropicabana" will be presented on Friday, April 25, at 7 p.m. The cost of tickets is $25. The evening includes a three\-course dinner and a murder mystery, with prizes being awarded to the some astute audience members who correctly solve the crime.

  • Whatever the economy, some needs never go away.

    The 31st Annual Wild Hog Canoe and Kayak race is mere weeks away, but organizers - Bronson's AmVets Post 88 - say they are far behind needed numbers of both racers and sponsors.

    They don't mind so much for the race and themselves, but Levy County's venerable river adventure race benefits Levy Association for Retarded Citizens. Budget cuts and a falling economy have LARC headed for hard times, according to Executive Director Betty Walker.

    Not that they've ever been easy.

  • Have you ever tried to find a word to describe wildflowers growing in numbers more than a few? Bees can come in hives, swarms and colonies. Cattle in herds. Fish in shoals. Geese in skeins and gaggles. And so on. In my research I discovered a few new words to describe numbers: a "sedge" of heron; a "nide" of pheasants; and my favorite-a "fling" of sandpipers.

  • Unity Family Day

    Unity Family Community Center, Inc., will hold its Annual Family Day for the entire family and community, a day for families to come and learn prevention strategies and abstinence education for HIV/AIDS, substance prevention and crime prevention.
