  • Today in Levy County History

    In 1927, two local newspapers, The Williston Sun and The Levy County News joined forces to print a LEVY COUNTY DEVELOPMENT EDITION profiling local businesses and their contribution to the economy.
    One of the featured businesses was the Montbrook Crate Company. The company employed 80 workers making it a community prosperity feeder with its payrolls.
    At that time, Montbrook thrived on one industry, the Montbrook Crate Company. The company was organized in 1924 when J.T. Flowers, the present owner, bought all the stock in the old Montbrook Veneer & Basket Company.

  • Angered over Bauer issue

    I just read your current article on the Bauer cat issue. I have been on the Bauer’s property several times. I have never seen an abundance of flies or smelled anything outside the fenced in area. I have also been in the enclosures and did not find an abundance of flies or smells.
    As I visit the area and talk to people around the island they talk about how much good the Bauers have done for the cats and the islands. But they do not  get much help. It actually angers me that all of the slant seems to be ‘against’ them!

  • Ask a Lawyer

    G.L. of Cross City asks, “Last year I had my lawyer revise my Will. She also prepared a Living Will and a Designation of Health Care Surrogate for me. However, I recently heard about a DO NOT RESUSCITATE form. Should I get one of those prepared, too?”
     
    Dear G.L.,

  • The shape we are in

    Since 2005 our electric bills from our electric co-op have gone up 60 percent due to higher charges per kilowatt and increases in fees charged on a monthly basis. That is about 10 percent per year when the increase nationally is about 6 percent per year.
