  • Steve Liles of Chiefland is one of those folks affected by the ash coming from a volcano in Iceland, but he's not among the folks stranded by it.

    Far from it — literally and figuratively — the Cross City hardware store operator and associate pastor at Lighthouse Word Church is in Kenya on his 22nd mission trip in 26 years. He left Florida for Kenya on April 13, well before the ash became a problem .

    He was going ahead to complete arrangements for a missionary medical team traveling from Valdosta, Ga., to join him.

  • Paddlers from around the area gathered last Saturday for the 33rd Annual Wild Hog Canoe and Kayak Race.

    Though final numbers for this year weren’t available, last year’s race raised more than $10,000 for LARC, making the race one of the groups largest fundraisers of the year.
