  • 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.  

  • Wake up, America

    To the editor:
        President Obama and Vice President Biden have said repeatedly that the economy is slowly getting better and that  we have “turned the corner” and that we see a clear road ahead.
    What they have failed to say is that the first thing they see on that road is a big yellow and black sign that says “Dead End.”

       Re: Tri County Hospital

  • 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.
