    The new College of Central Florida Jack Wilkinson Levy Campus isn’t quite ready for its closeup, to flip the words of Gloria Swanson’s character in the film noir classic Sunset Boulevard.

    But after 14 years of development, fundraising and construction, it’s getting close.

  • A Life Remembered

    It’s been 29 years since David Moss walked the streets of Williston, doing what he had sworn to do: serve and protect the city’s residents.

    It was Saturday, July 30, 1988 when Cpl. Moss of the Williston Police Department was shot and killed while attempting to assist with what was thought to be a disabled vehicle.

  • Williston sets tentative millage

    Unwilling to raise ad valorem taxes, the Williston City Council voted 3-1 Tuesday night to set the tentative millage rate the same as the current year at 5.8627 mills.

    Council President Charles Goodman was the lone dissenter, qualifying his "nay" vote by saying he'd rather raise it high then lower it further along in the budget process.

  • It was always Vanessa

    I was 9 when my older brother, Eugene, married Vanessa; 10 when they made me an aunt with the birth of David and almost 19 when they divorced – now the parents of three sons.

    It was a hard divorce for me even though I was away at college.

    Citizens of the Gulf Hammock area feel like their area is falling through the cracks when it comes to locating homes for delivery or emergency services, and when it comes to the latter, they’re worried it could prove fatal.

    At the Gulf Hammock Church of God last Thursday, around 30 Gulf Hammock residents met with a handful of county representatives to air out their worries over how the area is represented on mapping systems as well as how it’s handled through the postal system.
