  • Quote of the week for Oct. 6

    “If you tell the truth, you have infinite power supporting you; but if not, you have infinite power against you."

  • Hello, Gov. Scott,

    339 days and counting!
    Gov. Scott, when
    will you appoint a
    5th commissioner?

  • Coaches appreciated

    I had the opportunity to grow up in Chiefland and play several sports.  I now live in South Florida and I never thought I would envy or have a desire to return home. 
    Now every week I read the Citizen and I am so proud of what our coaches are doing with their athletics.  I had the privilege of playing beside some of your coaches and against them.  I also taught school and was on the same coaching staff with a few. 

  • A reply to Fuller's letter

    In reply to Ginger Fuller's letter of last week ...
    I am the first one to admit I know nothing about sports — love the kids but sports is not my cup of tea! But I have been around long enough to see and know the impact they make on our kids. I know a little about families and those without. I know a lot about relationships and "needing to belong."
    I know first-hand about compassion when life hurts! I know that there are kids out there that get no encouragement at home, or direction for that matter.

  • Cheers of praise to be heard Friday night at Williston’s Booster Stadium

    Jamie Baker is praying that the stands at Williston’s Booster Stadium will be filled to capacity Friday night.
    He’s not alone.
    Jason Cason’s praying, too.
    “I really believe that attendance at this event will rival the glory days of WHS football games back in the late ‘80s,” Cason said.  “Back then, the entire stadium was filled, and fans filled both of the vacant areas at each end of the stadium.”

  • Finding the path to a more abundant life

    The morning air was crisp, and the sky so clear that many stars hung twinkling still, stubbornly visible, now hours after dawn. The northern gust swept bitterly across the frozen fields of soy bean stubble and whipped against the swampy banks of the meandering bayou. The rippling waves lapped eagerly at its ice crusted edges. Certainly it was a fine morning to pester the unsuspecting puddle ducks huddled up behind what little break the tree-line provided.

  • Levy County centenarian says her life has been full

    After a quick adjustment, and then another, on the piano bench, Amelia Erwin leaned forward to pore over a sheaf of music.
    “No, I don’t think I can play that one,” she said to the visitor, casting the pages aside and rifling through another stack.
