Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • Best online services at socialsecurity.gov

    Americans love their computers. In fact, a recent study shows that the number of Americans who use the Internet has more than doubled over the past 10 years, reaching nearly three quarters of the U.S. population. Nearly half of all Americans have a high-speed Internet connection at home, compared to only five percent at the start of the decade. The study indicates that Internet use is even beginning to outpace traditional media. Younger Americans spend more time online than in front of a television.

  • Genetically modified madness

    I have been living in rural Levy County for nearly four years, and I know precious little about farms and farming, but I am rather fond of eating. As a result I tend to follow issues that affect our food supply and support a number of groups that work toward making the food we eat safer for everyone. One area of major concern to me is the problem our country is facing with regard to genetically modified foods.

  • Letter to the Editor

    An open letter to Levy County residents

    To the editor:

    Hello, it’s me again-the short, fat, hairy legged guy with the big hat.

    Words will never express the gratitude my family and I have for you. We must say thank you again to the 8,818 voters last November. We were humbled and blessed then and continue to be today by those who have fought for almost nine more months for my appointment.

    Thank you for your prayers and words of encouragement. Thank you for your continued communications with Tallahassee.

  • An effort needs to be made

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading Levy County Commissioner Marsha Drew's July 2 Williston Pioneer article in which she exhorted the local populace to participate in the decision making process for the upcoming 2009/2010 county budget. I took Commissioner Drew's message to heart and made plans to attend the county budget hearing held at the Bronson courthouse on July 7 at 1 p.m. I even took a little time to look at her website which is where my confusion began.
