  • I still become amazed at how different winter is here compared to where I grew up in New Jersey. There I hoped for snow. Here I know better. I know it won't snow, so I sit on the front porch writing this, wearing a sleeve-less top.

    What can I do on these glorious days but go out and enjoy nature? Yesterday I kayaked solo for the first time. I've been kayaking in company three times. I put in at the same boat ramp I've been to twice before. I knew I could carry the kayak by myself, and that I could get in and out of it unassisted.

  • This weekend has been one glorious day after another. Still, when is the colder weather going to arrive? Perhaps the birds know something. This morning flocks of them chittered, scolded, hopped and flew outside my cabin.

    Robins and towhees traversed the wood edges. Palm warblers swooped over the ground. Wrens chattered and warbled to each other along the fence row, and bluejays, titmice and cardinals flew among the trees, commenting in their own voices.

  • CFCC Levy offers class on organizing

    Central Florida Community College Levy Center will offer a course on overcoming obstacles to organization, just in time to satisfy those New Year's resolutions of becoming more orderly.

    The new course, Organizing Begins in the Brain, will be offered 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 10 and 20, at the Levy Center, 114 Rodgers Blvd. in Chiefland. The course fee is $25.

  • This is the time of year when we are attending functions celebrating the holiday season. This usually means sampling many different kinds of foods set out on a buffet table including appetizers. These are best described as a variety of tasty finger foods.

    For more intimate settings such as your own living room in front of a warm glowing fire; something as simple as a plate of sliced cheese (or container of cheese spread) and a few tasty crackers and a glass of your favorite wine (or non-alcoholic beverage) and a good book will make for a cozy and entertaining evening.

  • With eyes tightly closed, Samantha Slaughter, the recently crowned Little Miss Williston, reached in three different times to pull a ticket to see who would win the three prizes made by members of the Williston Art League. The league held one of its fund raisers for the Art Agazarm/Williston Art League Art Scholarship. The prizes had been on display at Perkins State Bank.

  • The lifelike wax figure of Charles Dickens, author of the beloved "A Christmas Carol," sat quietly in his corner at the Williston Public Library on Saturday, Dec. 8, as the Friends of the Library's annual open house swirled about him.

    A few people browsed through the books, and some tried to use the computers in the usually quiet space. It wasn't easy to concentrate.

    There was a buffet table laden with fancy finger foods and punch. (No mulled cider this year - the weather wasn't appropriate.)

  • If you were out last Sunday evening traveling on SR 121 between CR 326 and CR 464, depending on which direction you were headed, you couldn't miss the massive display of lights leading into the woods where you are invited to join in the guided and narrated "Walk to Bethlehem" that will be open each evening from 7-9 p.m. through Sunday, Dec. 23. There is no admission fee.
