  • It's the people who matter

    Tom and I decided this summer that we have finally reached an age where we don’t need “stuff” so we made a pact not to buy expensive gifts (over $50) for each other.
    We have most everything we need–and a lot of what we want. Anything we might consider as a gift, we can buy for ourselves. With those thoughts in mind, we decided to channel any extra money we have into traveling.
    “We’re making memories,” he told someone recently.

  • Red Devils go flat at Union County

    The Williston Red Devil football team ran into a group of fired up Tigers Friday night in Lake Butler. This Tiger’s name was Union County, and you could certainly say a defensive juggernaut.   
    The Red Devils were held to a mere 150 total yards of offense and just one touchdown in the 28-7 loss to the Tigers.
    The Tigers were coming off four straight losses, but you would never have guessed it by the way they simply dominated the entire game from start to finish.
