  • Remembering President George H.W. Bush

    Editor, The News:

    I wanted to express my gratitude for and sympathy to the Bush Family. In years past they were very supportive of my work with youth and troubled youth.
    I remember once walking into a meeting a little late, and Jeb Bush stopped the meeting to come out and shake my hand.
    The entire Bush family is very family oriented and has always been willing to help.
    I’m thankful to have known “Father Bush” and his family.
    God Bless,

  • Airport is beneficial to the county

    Editor, The News:

    Re: “‘Tarpiners’ should pay for their airport,” Letters, Nov. 15.
    I grant what Commissioner Randy Merritt says that “The airport will still cost taxpayers a small amount of money going forward,” but I ask “How much?” and “What do the taxpayers get for it?”

  • Vendors wanted for Arbor Day Festival

    Editor, The News:

    Artisan and craft vendors are invited to display their wares on Saturday, Jan.19 at Crawfordville’s annual Arbor Day celebration in Hudson Park between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
    Garden art, gardening tools, outdoor furniture, and bird baths and feeders will appeal to festival goers.
    Tree and yard service companies, nurseries, and other nature-based businesses are encouraged to publicize their services. Food vendors are sought as well.

  • Proposed Ivan development is a concern

    Editor, The News:

    Interesting Wakulla landscape changes!
    Re: Profitable Land Changes…..Try to change just before an election, or try to change right after…Nothing new…. But harder to slip through a proposal (CP 18-10, 70 plus acres) unanimously defeated by the Planning Commission on Sept. 10.
    Now a meeting called for Dec. 3) by the attached roadside placard. No county office mentioned. Developer sponsored?

  • Enough is enough with airport

    Editor, The News:

    Wakulla Residents,

    I agree with Mr. Young in his letter about the airport (“‘Tarpiners’ should pay for their airport” by FJ Young, Letters, Nov. 15).
    There is no reason that all of the residents of Wakulla should pay the upkeep for an airport that few if any will use.

  • Santa’s mailbox will be at the courthouse

    Editor, The News:

    Spread the news to all the good children here in Wakulla County.
    Starting on Friday,  Nov. 23, Santa’s mailbox will be up in front of the Courthouse in Crawfordville so all your important letters to Santa Claus can be collected by his helpers and delivered to him by Dec. 21.
    Don’t forget if you want Santa to call you, put your phone number down at the bottom and be very good.
    This year the Wakulla County Public Library will also have a location set up inside the Library to help assist in Letters Santa.

  • Help from sheriff’s office is appreciated

    Editor, The News:

    I want to thank the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office and Sgt. Ward Kromer for helping me during my time of need, losing my husband after the storm and coming out with their chainsaws to help me clean up my downed trees.
    God sent angels out to help me. I am so blessed.
