  • Family Fun Night held at JBES

    Here at Joyce Bullock Elementary we strongly believe that learning begins at home and view our role in education as complementary to the educational experiences children have at home. In order to integrate the home/school experience we have designed Family Fun Nights three times per year. These nights are designed to keep parents in the loop of what students are learning here at school.

  • Comeback falls short for girls in regional

    LAKE BUTLER -- It was the most exciting fourth quarter of basketball I have watched any Williston Lady Red Devil basketball team play in five seasons. This game had everything any Red Devil fan could have asked for and more.

    Union County (21-4) escaped with the win 51-50 and ended the Red Devils season simply because they made free throws and the Red Devils came up short at the foul line, especially in the fourth quarter where they hit just 4-of-13 free throws.

  • First time in school history, boys win district title second year in a row

    CHIEFLAND -- Williston boys’ basketball beat P.K. Yonge 74-67 in overtime to capture their second consecutive district championship. As in the game the night before against Chiefland, a balanced attack helped the Red Devils overcome a game-long assault by Blue Wave leaders Josh Snodgrass and Autis Gibson. Ultimately, the Wave had no answer to huge play by Williston’s sophomore big man James Hunt, who simply dominated the paint.

  • How about a Tuesday drink ban?

    efending the First Amendment is something that many newspapers do routinely. When it comes to open meetings and public records, it’s easy. (More on that in an upcoming column).

    Other times, when it seems to go against public perception, it’s not so simple. But when something appears to be unconstitutional, or at least questionable, it’s the job of the newspaper to point it out.

  • Devils split last two games before districts

    Williston High School split its final two boys basketball games of the regular season last week as they tuned up for this week’s competition at Chiefland.

    The Red Devils will play Friday at 7 p.m. against the Chiefland-Dixie County winner. The district final is set for Saturday at 7 p.m., also at Chiefland.
