  • I didn't even know I had a bucket list

    Let’s face it. I’m not a spring chicken.
    I have three adult children, two of whom have solid careers while the other is finishing his senior year of college.
    I don’t have grandchildren, but I’m definitely old enough to have a passel. I could even have a couple who could be as old as 12. But remember, I don’t.
    I’m not fit and thin and my eyebrows spotted gray two years before I found my first one in my head this past January.
    Indeed, I am old.

  • Embrace the change

    Over 132 years ago when Williston residents needed a news source, someone stepped up to the printing press and rolled off the first edition of what would one day become the Williston Pioneer.
    Through the years, the paper that was founded as the Levy County Times has undergone many changes: owners, editors, names, staff and sizes.
    But what hasn’t changed in 132 years is the newspaper’s position that it will be the best news source for Williston and the surrounding area.

  • The critic I always wanted to be

    When best friend Denise and I hit the road, misadventure is sure to follow.
    Now that 500 miles separate us, those road trips are rarer but they’re still something to bank on.
    These days, the misadventures tend to be more with my husband and though I am loathe to admit it, it seems the common denominator is none other than me.
    Our recent weeklong trip–about 1,800 miles–through Georgia, South Carolina,  North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and at last, Kentucky was again fraught with misadventure, albeit minor ones.

  • Just how good was this 2014 championship team?

    One only has to be a fan of any sport, and you will hear the same old stories and predictions from many coaches and sportscasters regardless of the sport.

    There are those who say defense wins football championships, and free throw shooting wins and loses most basketball games. And some say defense and others say it’s pitching that wins baseball championships.

    Well, let’s take a look at this 2014 Williston Red Devil Baseball 1A State Championship team to see just how good they were.

  • Excitement was contagious

     

    It's been a  rough baseball season here at the Williston Pioneer. Our sports writer quit and despite advertisements, Facebook pleadings and discussions with teachers and students alike, no one came forward to do the job.

  • Councilman's Corner

     Service is the rent we pay for being

    One of my goals as a City Councilman when I was appointed was to engage people and encourage service to our community.
