    To the editor:

    There can be no greater honor and glory than to have the very best attend to one's cries for help. Accolades of excellence can then be shared forever. During my four decades of communicating with tens of thousands of fans, it was truly rewarding and always a privilege to boast about our finest.  

    Little did I know it would be the supreme combo of the Orthopedic Institute  and NFRMC that would provide me the much needed relief of a total hip replacement.

    Trump’s motto is “Make America Great Again”.    In the past, when were teachers armed and the schools virtual prisons?  Not during my lifetime.

    My husband was a high school teacher with 12 years of military experience – the kind of teacher Trump is advocating being armed. Students could easily attack and disarm a teacher, then go on a shooting rampage without even needing to buy a weapon.  It has been proven that the teenage brain does not always act rationally.

    The appalling amount of litter lining our county’s roads is a depressing sight. Litter is not only ugly, it is a distraction for motorists. It decreases property values, depresses tourism, and discourages potential new residents from relocating to Levy County. It is also a hazard to pedestrians, equestrians, and animals. According to the National Audubon Society, by 2050 there will be more plastic debris in our oceans than marine life.

    After reading of the "embarassment” of Regional General Hospital, I personally felt embarrassed that it was the first time we ever heard of the event.  Why ?

    We would have been there for sure just to meet the new doctors and staff.  But we had no clue and the hospital deserves help and support from the citizens.  

    The exterior of the hospital is an asset to the city of Williston.  Nice job!

    I've helped organize our city's Veterans Day ceremony for 16 years, and each year it gets bigger and better.

    The planning of such an event is near to impossible for one person to do alone and I couldn't have done it without the help of many people.

    Thank you to everyone who participated in the parade from across the county and to the people who lined the streets to say "Thank you" to our nation's veterans.

    Orange Hill Cemetery is a beautiful place for our loved ones who are buried there. It is our wish and our desire that we continue to keep and maintain this memorable resting place.

    We are having a bit of a financial challenge that we, as a loving group, must begin to address.

    The source of income (lot sales) is beginning to diminish while the expense of maintenance is continuing to increase. We, as members and family of Orange Hill Cemetery, must now take charge to cover our expenses.

    To the editor:

    Three days before Richard Spencer’s speech at UF I received an email newsletter from Congressman Ted Yoho.  He seemed more concerned about possible violence by Antifa than by the attempted takeover of the United States government by the Alt right.  You know, the ones that shot at a group of peaceful protestors after the event, and beforehand, were reported to be gathering in Gainesville because “Florida is an open carry state”.  Spencer’s freedom of speech is allowing him to yell “fire” without restrictions.

    Once in a while, you come across a person you know is so amazing and wonderful that you must acknowledge and recognize them.

    This person for my husband and me is a young lady who is a banker at Drummond Bank in Williston by the name of Keisha Richardson.

  • Town hall meeting is set for May 6

    To the editor:

    Open Letter to Citizens:

    Democracy doesn’t work when citizens don’t participate. One of the tools for participation is the town hall. Citizens for an Engaged Electorate (CEE) is calling on folks to exercise their right to have a say in their government.
