Today's News

  • Tight-knit Lady Indians led by accomplished class of seniors

    The Chiefland High School softball team has reached the stage where its championships could nearly be taken for granted.

  • Smith walk-off double lifts Indians over Lafayette

  • Levy County schools thrive in Career and Technical Education

    Vocational and technical training has come a long way in recent decades.

    To the uninitiated, much of today’s version – which comes under the banner of Career & Technical Education (CTE) – might look indistinguishable from the more advanced college prep paths.

    From biotechnology to computer design, CTE programs touch on a wide range of skills and knowledge areas, and meet rigorous requirements in terms of industry certification standards and college preparation.

  • County introduces more flexible advertising agreement for its vehicles

    Levy County updated its policy to advertise on its vehicles, allowing for replacement vehicles to fulfill advertising agreements when county vehicles displaying advertisements are no longer in use.

    Transportation director Connie Conley said the proposed resolution came about after the County had three of its 25 buses with Haven Hospice advertising go inoperative, causing a shortage in advertisements according to the agreement.

    The resolution (2017-006) was passed unanimously last Tuesday.

  • New Yankeetown principal embraces leadership role at small school

    When Denee Hurst left for college to attend the University of Florida, she never thought she’d return to the kind of small-town setting like the one in which she was raised in Dixie County.

    She did, however, as she put in more than 20 years as a teacher and educational administrator in the county.

    And now Hurst is the new principal of Yankeetown School, which, with its enrollment of around 200 students, is an even smaller school than where she started.

  • Knowledge is the key to success

    The position of a person in life is not their potential and that is because knowledge increases each time a certain position is attained, whether it be a promotion in school, work or in any other endeavor; and never let circumstances in life block achievement. Those two statements were the main pieces of advice Dr. Kendrick Scott offered Saturday during the Levy County Black History program in the Tommy Usher Pineland Center. 

  • Chamber selects Long as Citizen of the Year

    The Greater Chiefland Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year Award was presented Tuesday to Max Long, a sergeant with the Levy County Sheriff’s Office.

  • STARS Gala celebrates making a difference

    The theme of this year’s STARS Gala fundraiser presented by the Levy County Schools Foundation was summed up in a short parable about a boy tossing starfish back in the water along a beach.

    The point of the story is the boy’s determination to make a difference in each starfish’s life he saves, rather than succumbing to the feeling of futility in trying to save the thousands of starfish littered along the beach.

  • Bronson FFA does well in horse judging
