    * Kenneth Wiedman, 26, of Northeast 60th Place, Bronson, was accused of battery after an incident at a residence on County Road 337.

  • Drug task force turns to Bronson

    Reports from the Levy County Drug Task Force keeping coming in, but now the focus has shifted from Williston to Bronson.

    The Task Force announced eight arrests this week, some with multiple counts, all in the Bronson area.

  • Police arrest burglary suspects

    Williston Police on Tuesday arrested two area teens for the attempted burglary of a residence in the 100 block of Northeast Third Avenue.

    A neighbor saw two suspicious subjects by the back door of a house at 9:25 a.m. The resident was not at home. The suspects saw the neighbor and fled on foot with the neighbor in pursuit.

    The suspects split up, but were later located by officers Bond and Morris at a residence on Northeast 10th Street they have been called to before.

    Arrested were Chauncee Myers of Southeast 10th Street and Sydney Frasier Jr. of Williston.

  • County speeding crackdown set

    Mud boggers who use a private site on County Road 337 near Northeast 125th Street need to have their driver's licenses, vehicle registrations and insurance papers up to date on Sunday, Oct. 26 as the Levy County Sheriff's Office is conducting a checkpoint at the intersection.

    Capt. Evan Sullivan, spokesman for Sheriff Johnny Smith, said neighbors around the site are complaining about drunk drivers and littering associated with the weekend gatherings. "This is not a sanctioned mud bog because they do not charge money," Sullivan said.

  • Why I'll vote for Amendment 2

    Editor:

    Amendment 2 does one thing and one thing alone. It defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman, but it does not prohibit the government or private companies from extending benefits to whoever they wish. The Florida Supreme Court has ruled that Amendment 2 concerns the "single subject" of marriage and simply takes the existing state marriage law and places it into the constitution having similar effect (Opinion to the Attorney General, 926 SO. 2d. 1229.2996).

  • School Board's sounds of silence

    First, it must be noted that Billy Morrison has not been convicted of anything. All we have are charges filed of lewdness and exposing himself at a rest room at Santa Fe College.

    Still, since Morrison is a member of the Levy County School Board, the matter must be addressed, and in this vein the School Board failed miserably at its meeting on Tuesday.

  • Term limits for Congress

    Editor:

    We are in a mess. All we hear are people saying we are in a mess. The bunch on Wall Street, the congressmen and senators admit we are in a mess.

    So what do they do? They have the power. They vote in a plan to bail out the money people, the people making multibillion dollars in perks. The heck with the ordinary, working families who manage to save a dollar or two after household expenses. Let the taxpayers foot the bill.

  • Wild observations

    Some might say that watching birds is at its best this time of year. In addition to migrating birds passing through, we also see the arrival of birds who stay here during the winter.
