Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • School traffic concerns are real; action needed

    To the editor:

    As the class of WHS graduates heads off to new endeavors, let us consider the future graduates of our growing community. 

    Living in Williston since 1979, I have seen this sleepy rural town grow into a thoroughfare for traffic moving at a rapid clip through our town. 

    My current concern is the issue of CR316 from Alt27 to SR41. Our two newest schools are located on this crossroad. 

  • Category was missing

     To the editor: 

    Enjoyed reading the special section last week announcing the Readers’ Choice Awards. But there was one serious omission: No award for Best Newspaper.

    I’d like to nominate the Williston Pioneer.

    Perhaps nobody knows as well as I how hard Pioneer editor, Carolyn Ten Broeck, must work to get out the news every week. We should all appreciate what she does for the Williston community.

  • Thank goodness for Mississippi

    Ever since I wrote the column about the Mississippi Roast and The Carnivore things have been changing at Herding Cats Ranch. 

    Shortly after the roast debuted, The Carnivore told me to put together a French toast casserole, store it in the fridge, get a good night’s sleep and pull out my work boots, ‘ cause I was gonna need them.

    He meant that literally and figuratively. 

  • Pride begins at city hall

    If leadership begins at the top, then the drive to make Williston a more attractive city must begin at city hall.

    Civic groups and individuals alike have picked up the gauntlet to clean up Williston. Two of the city council's appointed committees, the Community Redevelopment Agency and Board of Adjustments and Code Enforcement have put in countless hours to make Williston better, prettier.

    And what has the council and staff done to beautify its own property?

  • Friends of Williston Police say 'thanks'

    To the editor: 

    The Friends of Williston Police would like to thank the NRA Foundation for the generous donation of 12 Ruger target pistols and appropriate ammo for the purpose of training police and civilians, alike. The NRA Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the National Rifle Association and they contribute to efforts to advance the shooting sports.
