    To the editor:

    Orange Hill Cemetery is a beautiful place for our loved ones who are buried there. It is our wish and our desire that we continue to keep and maintain this memorable resting place.

    We are having a bit of a financial challenge that we, as a loving group, must begin to address.

    The source of income (lot sales) is beginning to diminish while the expense of maintenance is continuing to increase. We, as members and family of Orange Hill Cemetery, must now take charge to cover our expenses.

    To the editor:

    I've helped organize our city's Veterans Day ceremony for 16 years, and each year it gets bigger and better.

    The planning of such an event is near to impossible for one person to do alone and I couldn't have done it without the help of many people.

    Thank you to everyone who participated in the parade from across the county and to the people who lined the streets to say "Thank you" to our nation's veterans.

  • Letter to the Editor

    To the editor:

    Three days before Richard Spencer’s speech at UF I received an email newsletter from Congressman Ted Yoho.  He seemed more concerned about possible violence by Antifa than by the attempted takeover of the United States government by the Alt right.  You know, the ones that shot at a group of peaceful protestors after the event, and beforehand, were reported to be gathering in Gainesville because “Florida is an open carry state”.  Spencer’s freedom of speech is allowing him to yell “fire” without restrictions.

    To the editor:

    Once in a while, you come across a person you know is so amazing and wonderful that you must acknowledge and recognize them.

    This person for my husband and me is a young lady who is a banker at Drummond Bank in Williston by the name of Keisha Richardson.

  • Town hall meeting is set for May 6

    To the editor:

    Open Letter to Citizens:

    Democracy doesn’t work when citizens don’t participate. One of the tools for participation is the town hall. Citizens for an Engaged Electorate (CEE) is calling on folks to exercise their right to have a say in their government.

  • Wake up, America

    To the editor:

    The Democrats say that Mr. Donald Trump does not pay federal income tax. Mr. Trump says that he filed his tax form every year in accordance with the IRS requirements.

  • Questions meaning of councilman's opposition

    To the editor,

      Last week’s newspaper reported, (in the story headlined “Old middle school, new city hall again take lead at council meeting,” page 1) that council member Danny Etheridge said of a proposal “It’s a bad idea. I’m not in favor of taking it for free and selling it.” 

  • Grocery store employee's honesty is impressive

    To the editor :

    I would like to give a young man public thanks.

    When I left the Williston Winn Dixie Wednesday, I left my wallet and smartphone in the cart. By the time I realized it and got back, the cart was there, but no stuff in it. 

    I saw a Winn Dixie employee in the lot and told him what I had done. He said “They are in customer service.”

     I asked “Someone turned them in?” 

  • Local coverage is ample

     To the editor:

    I’d like to thank the Williston Pioneer for providing such a wealth of information about local candidates to help voters make their decisions in the upcoming election.  

    This service is particularly valuable in the aftermath of  last year’s Florida Supreme Court ruling, which found legislative Republicans guilty of violating the state constitution when they illegally  manipulated this district to rig elections in their favor.
