Today's Opinions

  • Those in ag industry deserve pat on the back

    As we enter the dog days of summer, people will be out enduring our famous heat and our abundant resources available to them; North Central Florida is a great place to be. Whether you’re on a farm handpicking blueberries for pies, cooking steaks on the grill or enjoying watermelon on the river with family and friends, this area provides us with so many great homegrown options to fill our summer time. During these times the agriculture industry can easily be taken for granted by those not directly involved in it.

  • New regs could hurt General Aviation

    To the editor:

    Each month, volunteer pilots from Angel Flight Southeast fly patients needing specialized medical care, including chemotherapy and dialysis, to hospitals throughout Florida. Many of these patients are from rural areas and would otherwise be hard-pressed to receive the care they need.

  • Mining in Montbrook

    To the editor:

    You may have seen the signs up “NO BLAST NO DUST” around our neighborhood in Montbrook and on East Levy Street. We are very much against the blasting mine Mr. Vanderwey would like to see placed here. Mr. Vanderwey hasn’t given up on his idea of a lime rock blasting mine in Williston. While he hasn’t gone before the Board of Commissioners (BOC) yet, he is still working on getting his paperwork in order to proceed in hopes of getting approval from the board.

  • Letter to the Editor

    To the editor:

  • Williston, you missed a treat

    When the press release came over last week, Iee^immediately put it on my calendar of things to do Saturday. “Moonlight and Music” it read. What could be better? Iee^thought.

    It was raining at my house, but just a brief drizzle so I was almost sure it wouldn’t be cancelled. ee^I was correct, although when I arrived at Williston Rehab, there was no one out enjoying the moonlight.

  • Wants city to be more supportive of WYAA

    To the editor:

  • Charges PE’s Lyash misrepresents facts

    To the editor:

  • To the moon, Lou

    As a child of the 50s, I am part of the generation that saw humans fly into space and came to believe that if we applied ourselves to a problem it could be solved — especially if we applied ourselves to science, engineering and math.

    The news that the Soviets (remember them?) had put a man into space sent us into a frenzy.

    We watched President Kennedy’s challenge to reach the moon in 10 years.

    I remember the nuns hustling us out of class one day to look up at the sky for a “really tiny reflection of light.”
