Today's Opinions

  • It's not funky without 'fun'

     When Tom and I started traveling more by air than land for our vacations, I learned quickly how important it is to be organized and how essential it is to cram as much as you can carry when you board a plane.

    We were in an airport somewhere when I spied what I thought was the perfect solution – an Ogio backpack that didn't look as if I were ready for the Appalachian Trail.

  • It's who we are

    I've always been a traditionalist. I suppose that goes along with not liking surprises. I like knowing what's going to happen. I don't like guessing about what ifs and I like having a plan of action.

    I've become a little less rigid since Tom and I have been married, because he is the Master of Spontaneity. He likes nothing better than hitting the open road and searching for hotels at midnight. 

  • Finally a clean election

    F

    or several years I have started off the "silly season", better known as campaign season with a fervent wish that things would be clean and without some of the negativism that has plagued other campaign seasons. 

  • 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.  

  • Superintendent is appreciative

     To the editor: 

    Aug. 10 was a wonderful start to another great school year in Levy County. The sun was shining, students were excited and teachers were prepared to open the school house doors to 5,500 students.

  • Here I go again

     I miss spending lazy Fridays chatting with Winnelle Horne on the porch of the Levy County Quilt Museum. 

    She certainly tolerated my foolishness while educating me on Levy County culture. 

    One thing the late founder often said to me,”You're certainly opinionated.”

    “Um huh. You want me to leave now?”

  • Put up the cords, Dobby's here

     I've never owned a puppy before but in two short months, I've learned that puppies – like babies – should be had when you're young.

    Ever since Tom has been on the DL – about a year now – we've bandied about the idea of a dog that would be a companion for him while I am either at work, or visiting grandchildren.
