  • Didn’t like last week’s obituaries

    Editor, The News:

    Very disappointed in how obits were posted in this week’s paper. 
    If I wanted to go online to read these I wouldn’t subscribe to getting the paper. Many older people in our county can’t access “online”. If we have to go online for obits, we might as well stop getting the actual paper every week.

  • STEM is non-racial, HBCU is not

    Editor, The News:

    In response to the article “Florida HBCU presidents meet” published Aug. 8, I would emphatically disagree with the paragraph, “FAMU president, Larry Robinson, Ph.D., said the lack of diversity in the area of STEM has hurt America’s competitiveness globally.”
    Since the article is framed in a racial context, the reader would assume that Robinson is referring to “racial diversity.” In as much as there is no contextual support or basis for such a statement it comes across as biased and bigoted.

  • Bereavement services available

    Editor, The News:

    Big Bend Hospice is known for the outstanding services they provide to hospice patients, but there is much more to Big Bend Hospice.

  • Love the Natural Wakulla column

    Editor, The News:

    Re: Natural Wakulla column by Les Harrison.

    Dear Mr. Harrison,

    For many years we owned a second home in Bald Point and subscribed to The Wakulla News. We have since sold the place, but have continued to receive the newspaper here in Atlanta. The reason we have done so is your excellent Natural Wakulla column. It really contains a wealth of information, often on aspects of Nature that are common to both Florida and northern Georgia.

  • 4-H Clubs offer family camaraderie

    Editor, The News:

    I recently retired from my role as Leader of the Wakulla County 4-H Horsemaster’s Club but I did not want to leave without sharing what a wonderful learning opportunity we have right here in Wakulla County for our youth and how it has impacted my own family.

  • Thanks for support of Living On My Own

    Editor, The News:

  • Volunteers needed for Lighthouse tours

    Editor, The News:

    Because of strong desires voiced by many visitors to the St. Marks Lighthouse, we are desirous of opening the keeper’s quarters and tower room more frequently than just the current first consecutive Friday and Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and every Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
    We want to comply with those desires and to do so, we will need to recruit additional Volunteer Interpreter guides to provide the visitors with quality tours.

  • Sopchoppy Opry celebrates 19 years

    Editor, The News:

    July 27, 2019 was a special day for the Sopchoppy Opry. This day marked the 19th anniversary of this wonderful community music celebration.
    The show opened with the Southbound Band. The enthusiastic audience clapped and cheered to hear their country music. The air conditioning did not work so well, but the audience should certainly remember the “good old days” before A/C. And the band played on.

  • Things are booming under Trump

    Editor, The News:

    Re: “Why America is in mortal danger,” Letters, July 25.
    I felt I had to respond to Rick Soskis the last time he wrote a letter to the editor because of his obvious hate for President Trump. This time his vitriol has reached beyond the far left to far outer space. I’ll address a few of the points on his “problem list” for the readers to think about.
    1. Please explain to all of us “the current fascist threat.”

  • We must all be responsible neighbors

    Editor, The News:

    Today many people in our society do not live by a code of mutual benefit but by a lifestyle of personal convenience with no real sense of community. They feel no obligation or responsibility for the good of the planet on which we live and future generations will depend.
    That’s why so many of our friends and neighbors right here in beautiful Wakulla County are not willing to take the scant extra effort to make a difference.
