  • I didn't even know I had a bucket list

    Let’s face it. I’m not a spring chicken.
    I have three adult children, two of whom have solid careers while the other is finishing his senior year of college.
    I don’t have grandchildren, but I’m definitely old enough to have a passel. I could even have a couple who could be as old as 12. But remember, I don’t.
    I’m not fit and thin and my eyebrows spotted gray two years before I found my first one in my head this past January.
    Indeed, I am old.

  • Reason to celebrate

    To the editor:
        Tuesday night the supporters of Obama went to the Island Room for dinner and drinks and got a chance to view election returns.
     Since the returns were not conclusive, they retired to the home of two members of the group and were pleased to see the campaign go very quickly for Obama.
    The final acceptance speech was not ready until 2 a.m. What a strong finish Obama had! He spoke of hope, working together and being the President of the United States, of all the people, whether they voted for him or not.

  • Florida's election tally a disgrace

    To the editor:
    It is an absolute disgrace that once again Florida leads the entire nation including states whose polls closed much later than Florida, in the inability to produce election results in a timely and reasonable fashion.
    The Secretary of State who has been placed in their position like Katherine Harris awhile back, and the governors (currently Republican Rick Scott) who appointed them are solely responsible for this disgrace which could have been foreseen.
     Come on Florida.  We can do better than this.

  • Williston does it right

    For a year Williston Mayor Gerald Hethcoat has led the effort that would bring this year’s Levy County Veterans Day parade to our city.
    Phone calls, e-mails, face-to-face conversations and a lot of work–and probably prayer and sleepless nights–paid off Monday when hundreds came to Williston to honor the men and women of our Armed Forces.

  • Schools Foundation says ‘thanks’

     To the editor:

  • Hospital care was exemplary

     To the editor:

    I am writing to all the citizens of our wonderful town of Williston just to give my opinion of Tri-County Hospital. 

    My 96-year-old mother spent a week in the care of Dr. Martin and his efficient staff. The care was exemplary and  the staff was outstanding in their dilegent attention to my mother. 

    I think  we will have a hospital to be proud of and the future bodes well for the new  take over of ownership.

    Thank you.

  • WAG needs your help

    To the editor:
         Williston Animal Group ( WAG) has saved the lives of nearly 3,000 dogs in our community.  Now it is time for the community to save the life of WAG.  Due to a greatly increased number of abandoned dogs, increased cost of food and medical treatments, WAG’s operating funds are rapidly being depleted.
