  • 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 Williston Red Devils varsity football team succumbed to a very good Newberry Panther team last Friday night, losing by a score of 30-14. 

    The Panthers were able to effectively run the ball on a night that the Devils could get nothing going on offense after the first quarter. The game, while a loss, showed that the Devils have what it takes to compete with the area's best teams.
