    The Addams Family closes Sunday

    Yes, my friends, that creepy, kooky family, “The Addams Family, the Musical,” will be departing the Chief Theater in Chiefland on Sunday, Nov. 1 after a three-week run.

    It appears that Wednesday is grown up and has fallen in love. But, as Uncle Fester points out, there is a problem. She is keeping her engagement a secret. First she wants to introduce the young man and his family, the Beinkes to her family.

    Special to the Citizen

    If you're anticipating a simple little play in the Suwannee Valley Players' latest, "The Addams Family, The Musical," the opening musical number will convince you that this is a complex production performed with precision.

    This is a well chosen and very talented cast with even the smallest children playing big roles alongside veteran actors. This is probably the most enthusiastic, confident cast I've ever seen.

  •    Daylight savings time comes to an end on Nov. 1, so while you change the time on your clocks, be aware that starting Nov. 1 and running until March 31, lawn and landscape irrigation shifts to once a week for residents and commercial entities within the Suwannee River Water Management District.

       This will affect Levy County residents in the Southwest Florida Water Management District as well. Both districts and the Levy County Commission agreed earlier this year that SRWMD would set uniform conservation measures for the entire county.  

  • The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Oct. 22 at the Levy County Quilt Museum. Evelyn has finished another small quilt or wall hanging of tigers. They seem to want to jump off the fabric at you.

         Several people brought in donations of fabric and other items. We are so thankful that you thought of us. These donations are often used to make items for sale at the Museum. Thanks again.
