  • 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.”

  • Powering America

    The American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 is a bill in Congress designed to help move the United States off of its dependency on petroleum products by rewarding folks—corporations, companies and communities—who develop and sell alternatives while demanding that the industries using or selling oil-based products—such as utilities and auto-makers—adhere to a program reducing its use over the next four decades.

  • Preparing his whole life

    Jon Ebersole of Oak Park, Ill. feels as if he has been preparing for his current career and job his entire life.

    “I was raised a Mennonite, which is a very service-oriented faith,” said 48-year-old Ebersole in a telephone interview. “When in college, I was the ‘big brother’ for a kid in a tough situation involved with state services. I believe alcohol and emotional abuse existed in his family.”

    I would like to respond to the article titled "The Truth about Exotic Animals". To myself and many others this matter of what is being referred to as "Exotic Animals" (I call Wild Untamed Meat Eating Cats) in a residential area is a real and possible danger to all concerned and not to be taken lightly at all.

  • Letter to the Editor

    To the editor:

    On May 29, 2009 two cities, Williston and Dunnellon, united in a mutual partnership to protect one of Florida’s special natural resources, Rainbow Springs. It was stated that two of the major threats to the springs are water quantity and quality. Williston and East Levy County, which lie in the Rainbow River Springshed, provide a necessary water supply function (surface and ground water recharge) to areas south of the county, i.e. Rainbow Springs in Dunnellon.
