Today's Opinions

  • Election year is about to arrive

    We're soon to arrive in 2008, which is a presidential year.

    You could have fooled me. I thought the election has been going on for more than a year already.

    Things change so fast you can ignore, or forget, what is past. What would your reaction have been if six months ago I told you that Mike Huckabee was a front-runner in Iowa among Republicans?

  • Woman tries to care for dogs

    Letter to the editor

    We had been open for business for less than a week, hardly prepared for Nov. 19, when Kathleen, a financially strapped, lovely young mother of two young children, walked through our door with an emaciated, gaunt dog and a box full of faint whimpering noises. Three weeks ago, Kathleen started caring for a stray dog hanging around the house which now had eight puppies barely clinging to life due to malnutrition, dehydration, fleas, worms and ticks among other problems.

  • Horses need better care

    Letter to the editor

    I have read Cheri McDemott's letter on the 18 Arabians that were removed from their life of neglect and abuse from their owners and sent back to hell. What kind of animal protection laws is this legal system enforcing?

  • Bombarded by modern technology

    We've been bombarded by technology from all sides recently, and some of it has not gone smoothly, as many readers are aware.

    If you're reading this in print, I'm quite happy, because it means we got the newspaper out this week on a new technological system.

    If you're reading this online, then I'm happy, because with all the Web site problems it's the little things, like getting stories on there in a timely fashion, that please us.

  • Landfill fees and the county

    Editor:

    It seems to me that Nancy Bell is working hard for the residents of this county, at times standing alone. The latest disagreement with fellow commissioners has been the landfill tipping increases. She was against the increase.

    Yes, it may have been a long time since there has been an increase. But, I agree it is ?too much at one time.?

  • Business wants stolen items back

    Editor:

    Citizens of Williston, Williston Sports needs your help.

    On Nov. 18 someone broke into our business and stole a substantial amount of paintball guns and accessories in broad daylight. By the way, we?re only two blocks away from the police department. This theft is devastating to our business and future as a business.

    A description of the suspects are as follows: a young white woman with blondish hair and bad acne on her face, 5 to 5 1/2 feet tall and possibly works or worked at a convenience store or restaurant nearby. I have a witness that can identify her.

  • Not related to murderer

    Editor:

    It has been almost three years since our son, Jacob Langworthy, was murdered. And it has come to our attention that some people here in Williston still think that the owners of Angelina Mia (Da Bronx), Tony and Mike Vuto, are related to our son?s murderer.

    We would like to let everyone know that Tony and Mika are not related or connected to the one who killed Jacob. We are regular customers there and we would hate for this rumor to continue.

  • Killing in a Gainesville garage

    One of the things that bothers me is when I read something about a random act of violence and realize that it could have been me, or you, or a family member.

    Such was the case with a killing in Gainesville this past weekend.

    A young man from Tallahassee was killed at a downtown Gainesville parking garage.

    Some men were stopped and talking, and blocking the exit. He reportedly told the men to ?hurry up? so he could get out, and one of them walked up to the car and shot him.
