Today's Opinions

  • Before you diet, look at the date

    I learned a long time ago that any day God sees fit to let you crawl out of bed in the morning is a good time to resolve to make changes in your life.
    That’s why I’v never put too much stock in New Year’s resolutions. I’ve resolved in March to lose weight. I’ve resolved in July to exercise more. I’ve resolved in September to be a gentler spirit.
    But somehow Jan. 1 always signals the advent of a clean slate, a time to start  (or finish) something.

  • Monkey business

    To the editor:
       In response to the article about the monkey sighting, I too, have had the privelege of encountering the visiting monkey on four occasions.  
      I felt so excited and honored to have happened upon such a lovely creature in our pasture. The monkey sat on the fence and gazed at me.
     I wished him well and a safe journey in his adventures around the neighboring farms.

  • Permits are for safety

    To the editor:
    I was surprised to read that Dr. Marvin Dunn plans to go ahead with his Rosewood event even though the Levy County Commissioners denied his petition for a special event’s permit.
     Many events are held in Levy County each year and the sponsors of those events have no difficulty applying for and providing the county with all required information to insure  [sic] a safe environment for all involved.

  • Tarmac not worth it

    To the editor:
    The Tarmac Mine “Approximately elevation 6-7 feet on Gulf side and 16-17   feet on east end” sits within the hurricane–surge reach and evacuation   zone of a category 2 and higher storm.  Fifty-Two major hurricanes or storms   have directly impacted upon Levy County, an average of 3.21 storms per year   from 1842 through 2009.

  • True spirit of Christmas

    To the editor:
    For almost seven years in a row to date, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has opened their building and hearts to provide a safe haven for Santa’s helpers.
    This is through the 501c Not-For-Profit national organization of Holiday Hope Inc. founded and based here in Williston.

  • A bird in the wreath is like five in the house

    Work schedules  keep us from visiting our Georgia family and friends as much as we like, so after spending Thanksgiving here in Williston, we decided we were northbound for Christmas.
    As usual, the week before Christmas was a blur as I did last minute shopping (done for everyone in less than four hours), wrap said gifts, bake and create goodies, address and mail Christmas cards (no one said they had to arrive before Dec. 25) all the while holding down a full-time job.
