The Year in Review

-A A +A

A look back at 2008

By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

Perhaps the biggest news in Levy County in 2008 had to be the indictment of three county officials by a federal grand jury, while the big news in Chiefland was the City Commission’s attempt to head off the location of adult entertainment businesses within city limits.

It’s news that will continue into 2009 as the trio — Commission Chair W.S. “Sammy” Yearty, Commissioner Robert Anthony “Tony” Parker, and resigned Enterprise Zone Development Director Pamela Blair Williams, are due to go to trail on Feb. 2.

The adult ordinance — one of which has been enacted — will remain on the commission’s agenda well into 2009 as they try to fashion two others to comply with U.S. Supreme Court rulings and the U.S. Constitution. In doing so they will be avoiding court challenges and costly legal fees.

But enough for the top news. Other events dominated attention throughout the year.

Weather

The year started off chilly when a cold snap dominated the news in early January bringing frost and damage to plants.
