    Willing to sweat

    To the editor:
    I loved your column. I also paint and would love to see some place where we could display our work and possibly sell some.
    We used to have a yearly art show at the Women’s Club. We need something. I would be willing to provide some sweat.
     Carolyn, you have much improved our paper and appreciate your love of the town.

    To the editor:
    My name is Betty Smith Douglas and my late husband, Pete Smith, was the chief of police in Williston for five years and served as the chief deputy sheriff of Levy County for  27 years.
    The young men of our family have made their careers in law enforcement following in Pete’s shoes; in honor of him and to continue his work and love for the counties in which they have served.

    Agrees with changing school mascot

    To the editor:
     Reading the letters to the editor regarding the time to change the school mascot,  I  totally agree  with  sign man Steve. 
     I  always thought the same–why a devil? We try to instill in our children to choose the right path and the devil, well, is just thde devil. We really need to find a new mascot for our children.

    Time to change school mascot?

    To the editor:
    I do a lot of signs for the community and it always bothers me to put the Red Devil name or logo on the signs I produce.
     Not being a very religious person, it still makes me ask why we continue to use the devil as a mascot. Isn’t there some other name we could use like some kind of animal or something that would be better suited to use to promote the efforts of our children?

    To the editor:
    I was an inmate at Levy Forestry Camp. I worked for Robin Vick, who was such a blessing.
    But she was not the only person who had such a positive impact on me.
    The city of Williston has some of the best people in the U.S.
    Working in the public was scary at first, wondering how people would react.
    But to my surprise, the city of Williston treated us inmates like real people.
    That helped my self esteem.
    Not only would they thank us and tell us what a good job we were doing, people always had a smile for us.

  • Disappointed with commissioners’ action

    To the editor:

    It was with great sadness and surprise that I read the article entitled “County snuffs out teens’ tobacco resolution” in the Jan. 4, 2012 edition of the Williston Pioneer. Having grown up in Williston, I have great interest as to what my family members are exposed.

    As a Registered Nurse, high school teacher, S.W.A.T. advisor and one who has lost several family members to tobacco use, I was disappointed in the commission’s rejection of the resolution. Almost 89 percent of tobacco users begin using by age 18.

  • Disagrees with faith columnist

    To the editor:

    I was saddened by Pastor Stewart’s opinion piece in last week’s Pioneer.

    His unprovoked attack on evolution seemed based on a fundamental denial of the purpose of science, which is to simply observe and document the ongoing revelation of existence.

    He suggests that a convicted felon should have greater authority on this subject than a Nobel Prize winning physicist, another cause for concern.

    Holiday Hope a success
    To the editor:
    We at Holiday Hope would like to take this opportunity to say a heartfelt thank you to the many benefactors that enable so many children in our community to have a joyful Christmas.
     First and foremost, to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, who has provided us with a facility large enough to store, organize, and distribute Christmas additions to hundreds of local families, our deepest gratitude.
