  • Liking the Beacon

    Thank you for all you and your staff have done to make the Beacon a first rate newspaper!  I believe that you have found the heart beat of this fine community. The articles are timely, informative and very well written!

  • Will an angry god destroy America?

    The world sees the United States as having a weak government. They ridicule us for our debt. We are an absolute nothing in their eyes.

  • Private investment in communications infrastructure vital

    Half way through 2011 America and Florida continue to struggle to find solutions that will stimulate our respective economies and get us back to work.  For Floridians, frustration results directly from the state’s high unemployment rate (10.6 percent) and low economic growth. Hopefully this will refocus policymakers’ efforts on job creation and economic growth.

  • Balanced budget amendment important

    With Constitution Day rapidly approaching, I wanted to take a moment to tell you about an important constitutional debate we’re having right now in Washington and why it matters for the economy and our future.

  • Mad about garbage


    Don't you agree that the majority of the population appreciates the trailers provided for our recyclables?
    To be able to separate items and not make our landfill that much larger seems a real blessing.
    Last week, a gentleman was replacing a full trailer, and I mentioned how sad it is that some people use them as garbage recepticles.
    He replied,"Yes," pointing to some open garbage bags. "They are full of dirty diapers."

  • Outraged over theft

    This is a message for the person who “appropriated” the historic Town of Albion Florida railroad station sign which stood on the south side of SR 24 across from the entrance to University Oaks.
    Your actions clearly demonstrate what a selfish, inconsiderate, and disrespectful person you are.
    You are selfish for robbing everyone else of a marker denoting the history and heritage of Levy County, so you can decorate the walls of your shop or hunt camp.

  • Two days of infamy

    Pearl Harbor, Dec. 7, 1941, and New York City, Sept. 11, 2001 are two days that as Americans are permanently etched into our way of life — when America was struck by its enemies without provocation. Both of these days, although 60 years apart, are joined by the loss of American life into the thousands followed by a world view into the resolve of the human spirit that makes us supremely American.

  • Economic growth for Levy County

     To the Levy County Commission:

  • Thank you, will do

    How does one say, Thank You?  Somehow those two words do not seem adequate for  all that has been shared with me since May 22.

  • Commissioner disputes quotes

     I read your article regarding my motion to appoint someone from my district to the Planning Commission and your editorial titled “Our View” regarding non-agenda items and I would like to set the record straight.
