  • Eagles thrash Trenton 67-32

    The Eagles played keep-away with Trenton Friday, clobbering the Tigers 67-32 in a game that was never even close. C.J. Bowers was the lone light for the Trenton team, and Bronson keyed on him, pasting a fresh defender on him every time he threatened to get loose. Bowers, an excellent playmaker and deadly in the paint, was held to 14 points on the game and scoreless in the second quarter.

    The basket belonged to Bronson's James Rivers, who shared the bucket with rebounding terror Enrique Wiseman. The pair had 27 and 12 points, respectively.

  • Chiefland baseball getting tuned up

    Chiefland baseball was like a heavy spear last year – strong hitting in support of heavyweight pitchers Ory Pitts and Daniel Galpin. The Indians were 18-3 going into districts when the unthinkable happened – they were eliminated in a loss to a P.K. Yonge team they'd beaten twice already.

    Head Coach Kyle Parnell remembers it well.

    “We lost 2-0,” he said.

    “Ory pitched well. We just didn't generate any runs.”

    Still, last year's was a good group, he recalls.

  • Chiefland boys run with P.K. in narrow loss

    The scoreboards wouldn't sync Friday night, with one telling time and the other one telling zeros, but anyone with eyes could see that for 32 minutes, Chiefland boys' matchup with P.K. Yonge was anybody's game, right up until the buzzer said, “P.K. wins, 63-54.”

    It was that close.

    Nothing other than a complete game from every Chiefland player would have come close, and the Indians did it, from consistent defense to ball movement to finishing shots and rebounding.

  • Chiefland's diamond girls ready for the world

    The steam coming off the players on the 38-degree diamond is a pretty good indication that, if energy counts, Chiefland softball is going to have another good year. Like last year, the Lady Indians play in the brutal District 5 of Class 3A, where the competition includes perennial local power Williston as well as Ft. White and P.K. Yonge. Last year, neither Chiefland nor Williston made it out of the district tournament, an occurrence so rare some folks ran to the weather channel to see if it was snowing in certain warmer locales.

  • In with a bang; out with a sigh . . . 2008–goodbye

    While I always look forward to the dawn of a new year, I am nonetheless saddened by the passing of the old year.

    Most people celebrate New Year’s Eve as a time to cast away the old and embrace the new. I do too, to a certain extent, but there’s always a small bit of the evening that I claim as a reflective period to remember, to mourn and of course, to laugh.

    2008 started off with a huge bang–literally.
