    Special to the Citizen

    It was sometime back around 1995 or '96 when a young, local girl eagerly waited with anticipation for the Manatee Springs state park treasure hunt to begin.

    "Little Jo" had come to the park to join in the search for the lost pirate treasure and to witness the excitement of the parents and crowds, who would be cheering on their children from the nearby waterfront walkways and the park's shoreline kiddie beach area.

  • Patrick Smith's "A Land Remembered" is, arguably, a novel all Floridians should have read at some time in their lives.
    The book chronicles the lives of the MacIveys, a pioneering Florida family, just before the Civil War.
    Smith died earlier in the year, but his son, Rick, continues to lecture on the importance of the writings and life of his father.

  • SHINE, a volunteer program with the FL Dept of Elder Affairs, is here to assist you in making the best informed decision for your 2015 Medicare Part D Drug Plan or Medicare Advantage Plan. Each site will have a short presentation followed by individual counseling. SHINE provides free, unbiased, and confidential counseling.

    Low Income Medicare beneficiaries should ask about Extra Help (LIS) to help pay for your 2015 Medicare Prescription Drug Plan costs.

  • The church at Mae Pae, Thailand, which is sponsored by the Lighthouse Word Church in Chiefland is growing, doing well and getting stronger.
