    As I give thanks this holiday season for all of the many blessings in my life, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for your wonderful support.  
    Over the past three and a half years, I have been blessed to call myself a WHS Red Devil and a member of the Williston community.
     Thank you for allowing me to not only be part of your child’s education, but for also being part of their life.  

  • Holiday Hope needs your help

    Everyone is talking about no Toys for Tots in Levy County this year, but Holiday Hope is still here and has been for over 30 years.
    Holiday Hope, Inc.  is a  non-profit organization in the Williston area that is supported by Williston businesses and community members who either choose to shop for their designated child's gift request or donate money, so others can do the shopping.  

  • Something to be thankful for

    To the editor:
    I am a mother who lost her job at Walmart after five years. I am on unemployment, working trying hard to make ends meet. I  already told my children that Christmas would have to wait. My son, who is 10,  teared up. He said, “Don’t worry, Mom. It’s not about the gifts.”
    Later that day I rounded up change to buy diapers for my daughter and my grandson. My son went  with me. I was short a dollar.

  • Reason to celebrate

    To the editor:
        Tuesday night the supporters of Obama went to the Island Room for dinner and drinks and got a chance to view election returns.
     Since the returns were not conclusive, they retired to the home of two members of the group and were pleased to see the campaign go very quickly for Obama.
    The final acceptance speech was not ready until 2 a.m. What a strong finish Obama had! He spoke of hope, working together and being the President of the United States, of all the people, whether they voted for him or not.

  • Florida's election tally a disgrace

    To the editor:
    It is an absolute disgrace that once again Florida leads the entire nation including states whose polls closed much later than Florida, in the inability to produce election results in a timely and reasonable fashion.
    The Secretary of State who has been placed in their position like Katherine Harris awhile back, and the governors (currently Republican Rick Scott) who appointed them are solely responsible for this disgrace which could have been foreseen.
     Come on Florida.  We can do better than this.
