    The Williston Lady Red Devil varsity basketball team has begun 2-2 on the young season. The slate of games, all played in the course of a week, consisted of two back-to-backs, with one day, Wednesday, separating the sets. Coach Calvin Edwards has the team off to a promising start coming off a district championship a year earlier.

  • Counting my blessings

     A week from the time I am writing this, many of you will have overdosed on tryptophan, the amino acid in turkey that allegedly makes you sleepy or you've maxed out your credit cards or bank account on Black Friday deals.

    Either way, you've probably taken a minute – or 10 – to think about all those things that make you grateful.

    Last year, I told you what a difficult year it was and that I knew this year would be better.

  • Their stories need to be told

    The first time I came to Williston was Veterans Day 2005.

    I was living and working in Chiefland and I volunteered to cover an event in Heritage Park.

    I didn't know what to expect. I'd been in Florida about three months and had never even ventured to Williston.

    I was not disappointed.

  • Honoring our nation's veterans

    Veterans Day is Nov. 11 – the 11th hour of the 11th month and while it is a federal holiday Friday, saluting our nation's veterans begins tonight (Thursday) in Bronson. Events will follow over the weekend, with the highlight being the countywide parade, held this year on Bronson on the official Veterans Day.

    Turn out this week and show your support for the men and women who have fought or who are still fighting for our freedom.

    Here's what you have to look forward to:
