  • 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.

  • The connection between how you dress and respect

  • Sydney and beyond

     No grass grew under my feet once I landed at Sydney International Airport. After almost 24 hours spent in travel, I was quickly whisked away at the airport by my son, where we boarded a train that took us over to Sydney Harbor, where we then transferred onto a ferry which would take us over to Manly Beach. Reality set in as the ferry cruised past the historic Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge– “I’m in Australia.”

    As this outstanding basketball teams season comes to an end, I too, am saying “So long.”  

    Over the last 7 1/2  years, I have had the distinct privilege to cover some of the most outstanding, well mannered young men and women participating in high school sports today. I am speaking of the young men and women in Williston, who are proud to be called Red Devils.

    From football to basketball, volleyball and softball, baseball, and the cheerleaders.  And I certainly won't forget the annual Award Banquets I have covered.

  • How I slept through Christmas and suddenly it was 2013

     Everyone who knows me understands that the time between Thanksgiving and New Year is my time. I relish the season for so many different reasons and actually anticipate it like a child.
