    To the editor:

    There is a fight going on right now in Levy County, a fight between a neighborhood and a few who want to put a rock mine in our backyard. They have a lot of claims about how it would benefit our community, but, we know better.

    I am asking the citizens of Williston to get involved with us in Montbrook to stop the mine on CR 322. It will only be a few miles from your city limits, near your schools and your backyards. Just remember, when the wind blows from the south, the dust and the noise may be headed your way.

  • It’s a pleasure to be working on your newspaper

    Drollene Brown said it best Tuesday. “You get around,” she wrote. Indeed I do.

    Four years after moving to Florida, Iee^have now worked at four of the county’s newspapers. In those four years, Iee^have covered every government agency, except Yankeetown, driven hundreds of miles along the backroads and met scores of people and learned a lot about the state where I have always wanted to live.

    I wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank the teachers at the Williston Elementary School for their success in preparing our children for the FCAT writing test this year.

    Being a parent of a fourth grader, I understand the work effort required to prepare children to receive a passing score on this test.

    Not only did the WES students pass this test, but a large percentage achieved at least a 4 out of 6, which is a high standard set for the students to strive to meet.

    Dear Editor:

    After reading the article about the CRA going on’s for improvement to the downtown area of Williston, I had to ask myself what were they thinking when it came to removing the parking area in front of the Ivy House?

    Dear Editor,

    Once again I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the successful AARP Tax Aide.

    Levy County is one of our four counties in District 12. The Williston Library is one of two Levy host sites. Michelle Traylor and her staff generously made appointments throughout the season and furnished room for equipment, counselors and taxpayers. Your help is always appreciated.

    The Williston Pioneer Sun News provides publicity for our free services, weekly hours and volunteer recruitment. Thanks for keeping taxpayers informed about this local benefit.

  • Sowing my seed to the birds... or is it the turkeys

    It was the middle of the night and I could not go to sleep. I looked at the clock and it said 2:37 AM. I tossed and turned but nothing seemed to work. The Sandman, usually a faithful worker at our house, was nowhere to be found. I read somewhere that if you cannot go to sleep in the middle of the night, get up go out and watched a little TV and soon you will get sleepy. I am not sure who wrote that and I am not even sure if I actually read it or if it was some delusion of my mind at the time.

    Dear Editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to say, “thank you,” to the Williston Fire Department.

    On the night before Thanksgiving our business caught on fire. Some of the chemicals we use are highly flammable. The fire started in the chemical room and wasn’t called in for some time. When the fire department arrived they faced a towering inferno complete with explosions, intense heat and a 500 gallon propane tank 20 feet from the blaze.
