  • Letter: Dear RNC, Please take notice!

    I am a life long Republican. I am a retired senior citizen. I, like countless others are inundated with solicitations through the mail and phone from the RNC, specific Congressmen and Senators. They all want monetary support and would like me to fill out a survey in which the brain dead could respond. So, I thought I would send an e-mail to the New York Times and my home papers with hopes that someone from the RNC would take notice.

  • Letter: Thank You for Johnson stories

    Thank you to Steve Waters for the update each week on Chiefland High School graduate Jarret Johnson’s career with the Baltimore Ravens.

    It is nice for the people in this area to keep up with his progress. Not many athletes make it to this level and it is an inspiration to our young people that they can do this even from our small schools.

    Thank you,

    Beth Davis

     

  • Letter: Pumpkin Fest was a success

    Thanks so much to the entire community of Bronson and surrounding areas for making the First Ever Bronson Pumpkin Festival a huge success.  We had over 1,500 folks come through the gates to enjoy a great family-oriented festival.  Not too bad for our inaugural event.

     Special thanks for all Bronson Chamber Members and the staff from the Town of Bronson for working tirelessly to make this festival a success.  Also to all the volunteers, vendors and carnival rides that were a huge part of the festival.

  • Letter: Littering and the natural beauty

    My wife & I arrived here last Thursday and are also one of the many tourists who realize the natural beauty you have in this area.

    I am sure your paper has addressed the problem before of the littering that is done by some inconsiderate individuals, but was wondering if any of your editors had ever written an open letter directed to the individuals that litter and asked them to respond with their reasons for ignoring the many requests,and also for their excuses for littering?

    I walk my daily mile walk in the mornings and usually fill a large bag every 24 hours.

  • District champ Dixie County rolls shorthanded Chiefland in blowout

    CROSS CITY — Almost from the start, the cards were stacked against Chiefland High School’s football team last Friday night.

    The Indians traveled to Dixie County — the champions of District 1A—5 this season — reeling from both injuries and the departure of several key players.

    And it showed. The Bears made easy work of the Indians in a 42-0 blowout, padding Dixie County’s district crown and virtually eliminating Chiefland’s postseason hopes.
