  • Fish fry thanks

    To the editor:

    I would like to thank Post 88 and 444 AmVets, Ladies Auxiliary and Sons for the fantastic fish fry they held for a local soldier, PFC Jamie Page, killed in Afghanistan, who left behind a 3-year-okl son, Jarod.

    With the help of local bands, A Touch of Class Trio and South Bound Band, and the Bronson Volunteer Fire Department donating their time, $1,600 was raised for Jarod and his family. 

  • Look beyond postcards when casting your vote

    To the editor:

    You can tell it is election time when the daily mail brings numerous expensive promotional political mailers soliciting your vote.   A great deal of money is spent on these mailings, money which could be better directed to help worthwhile local projects.

  • Importance of public lands

    To the editor:

    Public lands and the protection of wildlife habitat and open space provide many benefits to the public. In addition to protecting wildlife habitat and native plant species, public lands are also important for protecting a multitude of essential ecosystem services that support human life and benefit people. As Florida urbanizes, pressure will increase on the land that remains undeveloped to provide for hurricane and storm protection, flood control, water storage, pollination of agricultural crops, and natural purification of our air and water.

  • Flood relief may be available

    To the editor:

  • Save those Sunny D labels

    To the editor:
    I’m very excited to tell you about a program Williston Middle School is participating in that can bring FREE books to all our classrooms. It’s called the SunnyD Book Spree, and the program will donate 20 books to every classroom that sends in 20 SunnyD UPC labels. The program will also award hundreds of books to the 10 schools that collect the most labels.
