  • Impeachment letter draws responses:Democrats need to cooperate with President

    Editor, The News:

    Either I live on another planet or Rick Soskis does. He claims President Trump is out to “divide and conquer” and is pushing “towards a tyrannical dictatorship.”

  • Impeachment letter draws responses:Help for Trump Derangement Syndrome

    Editor, The News:

    In response to Ricky Soskis’ “It’s time to push for impeachment” (Opinion Page, June 6 issue), I would say, “Please seek help.”

  • Floridians deserve best sunscreen available

    Editor, The News:

    As business and health care leaders, we understand and underscore the importance of sunscreen, especially high SPF sunscreen, to help prevent skin cancer.
    Every hour in the United States, someone dies from Melanoma.
    Here in Florida, we work, live and play outdoors, so from all the industry professionals who work outside to our youth on the sports field, we are all at risk of skin cancer and premature aging.

  • Big Bend Hospice collecting box fans

    Editor, The News:

    The temperature is already in the 90s and we haven’t officially hit summer yet. Just imagine if you had no way to cool off your home.
    Unfortunately, that’s the case with some of Big Bend Hospice patients and families. That’s why BBH is collecting fans this summer.
    To donate, please drop off a box fan or a monetary contribution at the BBH Wakulla County office located at 2289 Crawfordville Highway.
    Learn more about BBH by contacting Kate Davis at (850) 878-5310 or catherined@bigbendhospice.org.

  • It’s time to push for impeachment

    Editor, The News:

    I would not generally recommend being fearful, but the amygdala exists within the brain to signal fear for the important purpose of keeping us safe. As we get closer to a cliff edge we quickly develop a gripping sensation (fear) and do whatever it takes to prevent falling over the edge.

  • Addiction help is available from Narconon

    Editor, The News:

    In today’s drug crisis, deaths happen every single day and it’s really easy to scroll through your Facebook feed and see all of these mass-overdose situations and memorials and think “at least it’s not my kid.” But what you have to realize is that the person who died was someone’s child.

  • Support of Financial Algebra appreciated

    Editor, The News:

    Dear Community,

    Wakulla High School has seen the completion of its second year of Financial Algebra. Our new crop of students were introduced to the basic financial skills that most adults use regularly: banking, saving, budgeting, filing taxes, investing, insurance, and retirement to name a few.
    Students completed projects to give them an idea of what it is like to purchase and ensure a vehicle, and all the costs associated.

  • Huge thank you from Special Needs Prom

    Editor, The News:

    I want to thank the families of Wakulla Springs Baptist Church for having such loving and caring hearts in seeing a need for creating the prom for the children of Wakulla County. For the past 10 years they have graciously hosted the event and it has successfully grown. I have been the coordinator for the past three years and have enjoyed every minute of it. This year’s event marks the first year that it is now truly a “community event.”
