  •    Spring is here and the garden soon will be producing tons of vegetables and fruits, or  perhaps you are planning to take advantage of farmer’s markets, road-side stands or you-pick operations to buy a large amount of food to put away for later in the year.

       Preserving some of that food  will give you great taste and good nutrition and will also make memories for a lifetime.  

       Join us on for a canning update.  You have several choices of dates and times:

  •    The City of Fanning Springs will holds it annual egg hunt at  Fort Fanning Historical Park by the bridge on Saturday  from 11 a.m. until all are found.

       There will be groups for the hunt: ages two to four are in Toddlers and Preschool; ages five to six, in the K-1st; ages seven to nine, and ages 10 to 12.

       There will be drawings for bikes in each age group and other gifts. There will also be free snow cones and pop corn, hot dogs will be $1, chips. 50 cents, and drinks 50 cents.

  • Are you looking for a flexible volunteer opportunity that enables you to make a real difference in the lives of seniors in your community?  Do you like to help others resolve problems?  If you answered yes to these questions, then the Florida Department of Elder Affairs may have the perfect volunteer position for you!

  • Farm Credit pays homage to rural America with a country rap video. That’s right, a country rap video. Word.

    The video showcases the mad creative skills, courage (one guy attempts a back flip on his motorcycle), and dedication of folks who entered the first-ever “Keepin’ It Rural Video Contest.” Contest co-sponsor Farm Credit of North Florida has awarded cash prizes totaling $6,000.

    Chiefland library friends meet

  • The 2nd Annual Withlacoochee Wilderness Canoe & Kayak Race and Rally, hosted by Withlacoochee Area Residents, Inc., will start April 10 at 9:30 a.m.

    All proceeds will help fund the organization's efforts to protect and preserve Florida’s Nature Coast and its water sources.

       Reed, who was killed in the line of duty by a multiple shooting suspect on Jan. 14, is survived by a wife, Holly, and two sons, C.J., 9, and Caden, 5.

       Stacy Marlow, an organizer of the event, spoke to the Chiefland Rotary Club recently and came away with a $250 donation and a $250 hole sponsorship from the group. Marlow's cousin is Reed's widow.

  • Imagine the roads of the tri-county area. Think about the folks you know. The small towns.

    Set these images to music and you will find them floating through the notes of Easton Corbin’s title song on his new album, “I’m a Little More Country Than That.”

    Those are the roots that run through the album, on the Mercury label,  released on Tuesday.

    For folks in the tri-county area, there can be some pride as Corbin’s roots run deep in the area.

  •    Levy County has a multitude of beautiful, young ladies and now is the time to prove it.
