  • No dog in the fight

    With the news last week that the Ministerial Faith Alliance (MFA) has the first right of refusal concerning the future of the old middle school, the Williston City Council was faced with only one action: take a bow.

    Tuesday night, City Manager Scott Lippmann told the council that the MFA has until the end of January 2017 to strike a deal with the School Board of Levy County, or walk away.

  • The Pioneer Woman

    I’m accustomed to power outages.

    In February 1985 while living in the Kentucky mountains, a freak storm dumped 18 inches of snow in a short time and paralyzed the entire region.

    Not only was driving a risk, I was a young mother with a two-year-old, a two-month-old baby and no electricity.

    Our house was drafty on a good day and with an infant, I had to evacuate my home in order to keep the babies warm.
