  • Wild observations

    Carpe Diem - seize the day - that's a relevant idea this season in Florida.

    On several recent occasions I seized the day and observed other animals doing the same. My first foray began when I called a couple who live outside of Montbrook. They generously agreed to take me on a walk around their property.

  • Art event moving indoors

    Get all "wrapped" up in art!

    On Saturday, May 3, the GFWC Williston Woman's Club will sponsor a first of its kind: W illiston R egional A rt P romotion. Formerly the annual Williston Arts and Crafts Festival held under the shade of the old oak tree at Perkins State Bank, this year's event will feature the work of 15 artists who will set up at the air-conditioned Club House from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. The focus of the juried show (entrants will be screened) is on selling with no judging or ribbons; the top asking price for any of the framed and ready to hang pieces is $350.

  • Woman's Club plans dinner theater

    This year's the Williston Woman's Club's annual production to raise money for The March of Dimes has it all: comedy, drama, elaborate hats, singing, dancing, and an opportunity for audience participation.

    "Trouble at the Tropicabana" will be presented on Friday, April 25, at 7 p.m. The cost of tickets is $25. The evening includes a three\-course dinner and a murder mystery, with prizes being awarded to the some astute audience members who correctly solve the crime.

  • Wild Hog race seeking sonsors, entrants

    Whatever the economy, some needs never go away.

    The 31st Annual Wild Hog Canoe and Kayak race is mere weeks away, but organizers - Bronson's AmVets Post 88 - say they are far behind needed numbers of both racers and sponsors.

    They don't mind so much for the race and themselves, but Levy County's venerable river adventure race benefits Levy Association for Retarded Citizens. Budget cuts and a falling economy have LARC headed for hard times, according to Executive Director Betty Walker.

    Not that they've ever been easy.
