  • The CES Chorus and all grade levels recentlry held their annual Christmas programs.  The chorus under the direction of Roxanne Simpson, music teacher, tickled the funny bones with a musical about Reindeer flight school.  They performed this all three nights followed by grade levels singing Christmas songs.

    Pre-K had a night to themselves as they entertained their audience with favorite traditional songs of the season.  Each class had their own costumes.  Elves, reindeer and snowmen stole the show with their program!

  • A mistake in paperwork on a city water bill was causing Chiefland resident Betsy Hunt some problems.

    But she hoped that like the miracle of the season, Jesus' birth, maybe there was a miracle for her this season.

    Hunt knew something was wrong when she got a bill for $17.76 instead of the usual $56-$57.

    She went to City Hall to check and the clerk looked it up on the computer and assured her it was $17.76.

    Hunt was happy because the extra cash would come in handy.

  • If you are used to going to the Chiefland Christmas Festival at the Old Train Depot Park you might want to look across the street to find the festival and safer parking on Saturday.

    The entrance to the parking field is from Park Avenue West. If you are headed south from the commercial area of Chiefland, please turn right at Park Avenue and then left into the parking field, which will be marked.

  • Chiefland Christmas Festivalgoers will have a chance to start experiencing the change that will come about when the city builds the new Chiefland Trailhead Park on South Main Street/U.S. Highway 19, right across from the Old Train Depot Park.

    That’s because on Saturday, Dec. 10, the six-acre field will be the new site for the Chiefland Christmas Festival this year. The move across the street will end the necessity for festivalgoers to cross U.S. Highway 19 to go from the parking area to the activities. Bring the family and come out for a whole day of fun.

    There will be a ceremony honoring veterans at the park with speakers including Bronson Mayor Bruce Greenlee and the Town Council, Levy County Judge James "Tim" Browning and officials and other veterans.

  • It took a little bit of Halloween, the hard work of volunteers, the support of the Suwannee Valley and Chiefland Rotary Clubs, the donations of businesses and an old warehouse to make Christmas a little brighter this year for some Chiefland area families.

    This unusual recipe of using one holiday celebration to fund another is the genius idea of the Chiefland Police Department officers and staff who created a Halloween Haunted House in the old, vacant 9,000 square foot warehouse owned by Central Florida Electric Cooperative.
