    To the editor:

    Our family recently lost our beautiful daughter, Kalynn Curl, due to a spontaneous ruptured brain aneurysm. Kalynn was 25 years old and planning to be married in November, anxiously ready to start her own family. She was a kind soul with an infectious smile who was well loved by all. Definitely, gone too soon leaving our hearts forever shattered.

    During her passing, the hospital informed us that she was an organ donor. We, her parents, were all unaware of her plans as a donor and truthfully a little reluctant to the process.

  • Thank you for supporting the food drive

    To the editor:

    Once again our pantry shelves are full.

    I would like to thank the generous people who donated food to the annual Post Office Food Drive on May 11.

    Thank you also to the Williston postal workers who labored hard to collect all of the food. We are so grateful for the portion we received. Williston was very generous with food donations this year.

    Tri-County Pregnancy Center helps the community in many ways, including pantry food. With summer time coming soon, it is a blessing to be able to provide for food for the hungry.

  • Thank you for showing what community is

    To the editor:

    We are so fortunate to live in a small town where people still care about others and are willing to give of their time. 

    It is even more special when local groups, with no expectations of recognition or personal gain, contribute their time and energy to a local cause.  Such is the case for the Church of God’s 2x4 Men’s Ministry, the Williston Police Department and the Williston Fire Department.

    To the editor:

    On behalf of Ministerial Faith Alliance, I would like to thank the many people and groups that participated in the inaugural Healthy Living Fair on April 27 at Epperson Park. Three organizations came from out of town to offer services: Rural Women’s Health Project; Meridian Behavioral Healthcare; and Suwannee River Area Health Education Center (SRAHEC).

    Based in Williston, Life Raft Support Group provided a wealth of information on caregiving for people with dementia as well as offering their monthly meeting at the fair.

    On January 20th my life completely changed forever, along with my family. It was a Sunday morning we got up went to church and started our day not knowing I would be losing my 9-year-old daughter named Kimberly to an accident.

    To the editor:

    Thank you for your clear and comprehensive report of the Williston City Council meeting on Dec. 18.

    Although I was present, I appreciate your commitment to presenting the report so quickly so that others would know what happened.

    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.

    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!

    To the editor:

    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.
