Today's Features

  •  This week marks the beginning of turkey season in my area. After months away from matching wits with a big gobbler, I’m excited to hear his familiar sound echo throughout the woods. His voice is unique to all of hunting and yet is so recognizable. It really doesn’t take a great hunter to know when he is in turkey country. He does not have to look for the signs, only listen for the sounds. He will let you know where he is hanging out. 

  • He’s a governor in training and he’s wasting no time learning the ins and outs of his new position 18 months before he takes office.

  •    Hospice of the Nature Coast honored over 100 volunteers and guests from its Alachua and Chiefland teams with a Mystery Theater Dinner Party at the Great Outdoors Restaurant in High Springs.
       Mary Richardson (center of photo), of Chiefland, was one of those honored. Richardson’s first work experience is as a volunteer at the new Chiefland Thrift & Gift Shoppe, where she has been for close to a year and has provided almost 1,000 hours of service.

  •    Logan Smith, a sixth generation Levy County resident, was sponsored by Rep. Leonard Bembry to serve as a messenger at the capitol March 14 - 18. Logan is the son of Stoney and Laura Smith, of Fanning Springs.
       Logan is a sophomore at Chiefland High School and an honor roll student. He also competes on the high school golf and track teams. He's active in BETA, student government, FBLA and FCA.

    The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, April 8, at the Levy County Quilt Museum. We decided not to quilt the Dresden Plate as we thought the black background would fade. So, a Log Cabin quilt was put in, and we know it will be great when quilted.

  • Sgt. Pete Barnes, of Chiefland, right, a K-9 officer with the Levy County Sheriff's Office, is presented with the Officer of the Year award for American Legion Post No. 236 and AMVETS Post No. 444 by AMVETS State Veterans Service Officer Ivan Chubb.  Maj. Evan Sullivan, center, head of law enforcement for the sheriff's office, said Barnes is "a can-do guy." Chubb said, "You're the only body I know that everybody likes." Chubb said Barnes is also a military
    veteran.

  • Dixie Shrine Club President John Long presents Roz Boudreau of Chiefland and the VFW Post 5625 Ladies Auxiliary the Shriners Standing Tall Award for Outstanding Support of  Shriners Hospital for Children. Boudreau collected over $4,500 plus donated items, including crochet afghans and soft toys for the Tampa Shrine hospital during 2010.
