  • Don’t mess with tradition

    If we only learned one thing this week it is that Williston residents are passionate about their school, their teams and their mascot.
    When we posted a seemingly innocuous question on Facebook whether it was time the Red Devil mascot be changed, as suggested last week in a letter to the editor, we had no idea the maelstrom it would elicit.

  • Man may not live by bread alone but you sure miss it when it’s not there

    Most people would think that I am the size I am because of my incredible sweet tooth. Everyone who knows me understands that I cannot say no to a Reese’s Cup, a Key Lime Pie or Paula Deen’s Pound Cake.
    But the truth is, while I love my sweets, I love bread just as much.
    There’s nothing more savory than hot bread slathered in a pound of butter. And because I don’t discriminate, cold bread with butter, or peanut butter, is pretty darn good too.
    Aside from cheese biscuits, light and fluffy yeast rolls are by far my favorite bread type.

  • Williston’s Red Devils tame the Tigers

    In a Monday night baseball game, the Williston Red Devil's–after a slow start–turned their hitters loose on the Union County Tigers with a big fifth inning.
