  • I’m not afraid of  dementia
    Two years ago, I featured Sven Dorsey, who had read this column in the Lebanon (IN) Reporter. He said then to call back “in a couple years” so readers could track his progress with vascular dementia. After calling recently, what I learned about him surprised me.

    Chiefland Library Friends to meet

  • 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.

  •  ...as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside, and the birds of the air came and devoured it.  

  •  Easter sunrise service at First UMC

  •  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. 

  •    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.
