  • New life in Nigeria

    Nigerians celebrate in front of a Levy County ambulance donated to a town in April as part of a partnership between Nigeria’s Full Gospel Church of God, run by Alex Abiola, and the Williston Church of God. 

    The ambulance was no longer being used by the Levy County Department of Public Safety because of its high mileage.

  • No city elections this year

    Chiefland Mayor Teal Pomeoy and Vice Mayor Teresa Barron won't be running for office this year.

    That's because neither had any challengers by the end of qualifying period Thursday for the election that would have taken place Aug. 5., had some politically aspiring resident stepped up.

    Pomeroy, representing Group 2, and Barron, Group 4, will keep the positions they've held for the last several years.
