Today's Features

  •  The staff of Haven Hospice’s Tri-Counties care center in Chiefland honored their most dedicated volunteer, Harry L. Coleman, with a surprise 80th birthday party Mar. 5. It was a fitting tribute to this Chiefland resident who has made helping Haven his mission. For “Mr. Harry,” as he’s known, the Haven staff is his family and the care center is his home. He adopted them and they in turn adopted him.

  • LIVE OAK--Film students at American University in Washington, D.C., exchanged fun in the big city to camp in the wilds of Florida for a week over spring break. Classroom in the Wild – an alternative spring break program – gave about a dozen students an opportunity to explore life on the banks of the Suwannee River while learning to film nature.

    The students camped at Adams tract river camp, owned by the Suwannee River Water Management District (District), March 6-12. During their stay, they toured the Steinhatchee River Basin and other District lands.

  • The famous February 1945, photo of the flag raising at Iwo Jima shows six men planting an American flag. Three died there and three managed to make it back home after World War II. Among the survivors was John “Doc” Bradley, of Antigo, Wis., a corpsman, a medic.

    When Bradley died in 1994, his family recognized that he had never spoken publicly about his involvement in Iwo Jima. Instead, his son James Bradley wrote the book, “Flags of Our Fathers” to tell the story of that moment in a war and how they affected the decades that followed for the survivors.
