Today's Opinions

  • A Williston Pioneer Editorial

    Next Monday, the familiar yellow school buses will be back on the roads taking children to school for another year of learning.

    Drivers should take note and remember traffic safety rules when school is back in session.

    It only takes one mistake to change the course of a life forever.

    Keep your mind on the road.

    Eat breakfast before you get in your car, lay aside the cell phone and forget about texting. The life you save might be a child’s.

  • Guest Column

    Anger is an interesting thing. Not an emotion in and of itself, it is a response to other emotions, such as fear or betrayal. It can be repressed or overt; expressed loudly through physical action or quietly through words; destructive or beneficial.

  • Letter to the Editor

    To the editor:

    After reading the article on the mail carrier that failed to deliver mail facing a possible five-year prison sentence plus $250,000 fine.

    I understand that this is a serious offense, messing with the government and the U.S. mail. Yes, she should be punished. I think that’s a bit harsh of a sentence for not delivering mail when people can get away with starving, neglecting and abusing horses, pets and children with sometimes no convictions.

  • Letter to the Editor

    To the editor:

    As Grand Knight for The Knights of Columbus at Holy Family Church Council 11784, I would like to thank the editor of the Pioneer, Carolyn Risner. She was very gracious in handling the Knights and writing an article concerning our activities and service in the community.

  • A cautionary tale

    I love losing myself in a good conspiracy theory, and there is no better place to indulge this weakness than on one of the many Webs ites that cater to this type of material. These theories range from government complicity in bringing about a New World Order to the “faking” of the Apollo moon landings. Most of the theorists accuse our government and/or other governments of being the driving force behind a certain travesty in order to advance some sort of evil agenda.

  • Driving safely

    Maybe I have no right to tell people about how they should drive their car. After all, I am only 17. My name is Erika Drummond. On a daily basis my route may take me on unoccupied back roads to the woods or to the river, through the basic small town traffic of Chiefland, or possibly the congested highways to Gainesville and Tallahassee.

  • Unshakeable in the face of adversity

    Scripture passage: Daniel 1:1-21

    When adversity marches into your life, how do you react? When trials and tribulations begin to take hold, where do you go for help? If anyone in the Bible knew about adversity, it was the prophet Daniel. Taken from his homeland to serve in a pagan king’s court and later thrown into a hungry lion’s den, Daniel knew that life could throw you a curveball. Many Christians would have fallen apart in such conditions, but not Daniel. He remained unshakable in his commitment to God.

  • Letter to the Editor

    To the editor:

    I want to wish “Cracker” Johnson well, as he serves Levy County as the District-1 Commissioner. As a former Commission Candidate in the 2008 election, I campaigned along side of Mr. Blitch and Mr. Macri. and thought the governor would have appointed these two gentlemen.

    These two candidates walked a lot of miles on the campaign trail and spent a lot of money to run. They also garnered a lot of votes.
