  • Hospital could bring positive changes

  • Williston is a great city

    To the editor:
    Tri-County Pregnancy Center would like to thank the community for supporting MacKenzie Henderson in her food drive challenge for our center.  The response was wonderful!  

  • Spare me the small talk

    I enjoy lively, spirited conversation. And in order to enjoy that, I have to like being around people.
    No doubt in anyone’s mind, I am a people-person. I  come by it naturally because everyone–and I mean everyone–on my father’s side of the family was blessed with the gift of gab.
    At family gatherings it was difficult at the end of the day to figure out just what you may have gleaned from each other because topics were loud, broad and scattered.

  • Embrace the change

    Over 132 years ago when Williston residents needed a news source, someone stepped up to the printing press and rolled off the first edition of what would one day become the Williston Pioneer.
    Through the years, the paper that was founded as the Levy County Times has undergone many changes: owners, editors, names, staff and sizes.
    But what hasn’t changed in 132 years is the newspaper’s position that it will be the best news source for Williston and the surrounding area.

  • The critic I always wanted to be

    When best friend Denise and I hit the road, misadventure is sure to follow.
    Now that 500 miles separate us, those road trips are rarer but they’re still something to bank on.
    These days, the misadventures tend to be more with my husband and though I am loathe to admit it, it seems the common denominator is none other than me.
    Our recent weeklong trip–about 1,800 miles–through Georgia, South Carolina,  North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and at last, Kentucky was again fraught with misadventure, albeit minor ones.

  • USPS picks winners and losers

    The newspaper business—both small and large papers—has sounded full-throated opposition this past month about a plan by the U.S. Postal Service to purposely entice advertising out of the newspaper so ads can be placed instead with USPS favored stakeholder Valassis Inc., which bought direct mail company ADVO in 2006.

  • Breaking back in

  • Letter to the editor

    To the editor:
    The other day while I was at the post ofice, I noticed an advertisement flyer for their new “Go Green” stamps. This was double-sided 8.5”x3.75” multi-colored flyer.
    I realize that we (the general public) must purchase stamps  to put our correspondence into the postal delivery system BUT this is a government monopoly and does not need to advertise their product. Where or who do we go to if we need stamps–the USPS (and their distributors)  because only they can produce and sell the product–the STAMP.
