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.

  • Thanks for caring

    To the editor:

    I want to extend a sincere thank you from myself and my family to all of you for your prayers, flowers, cards, and expressions of concern during my recent hospital stay.

    By the grace of God, I am at home and becoming stronger each day. Your good wishes remind me daily of the power of prayer and the value of loving and supportive family and friends.

  • Letter to the Editor

    To the editor,

    Reading the article about the JROTC lacking funding just gets me pretty annoyed.

    I believe the JROTC is a great program in teaching the young adults leadership and trying to mold them into responsible adults.

    My son attended the JROTC and enrolled in the military after graduation, along with many high school friends.

    And for that we are very grateful to the JROTC. There is a great need for this program to offer the young generation a chance to get an education and have a career to shape their lives.

  • County road department unresponsive to needs

     

    To the editor:

    Here is another resident complaint about the Levy County Road Department. 

  • When silver and gold collide

     I

    've known Freda most of my life. Her mother, Frances, drove me to kindergarten every day when I was five. However, it wasn't until I was a freshman in high school and we had a class together that I really got to know her. 

  • Letter to the Editor

    To the editor:

    As the Chief of Police for Williston, I join the Florida Police Chiefs Association in its strong opposition to the currently proposed constitutional amendment that would legalize or decriminalize the sale, possession or use of marijuana.

  • Humility before honor

    It’s been 14 weeks since I learned that I had B-cell lymphoma.

    That seems like a short time–only three and a half months–but in some ways it seemed like an eternity.

    In the beginning it was a seemingly endless parade of doctors and tests. Just when I thought I was finished, I received another referral; another test; another opinion.

    Driving to Gainesville two or three times a week–and later every day–gave me a lot of time for contemplation and self discovery.
