  • Help the Indians cover their backs

    Our Chiefland Indian roundballers are suffering. Several weeks ago the teams’ uniforms were stolen and to date they have not been recovered.

    Last week Sports Editor Jenna McKenna detailed the plight of our student athletes and made an appeal for the community to help.

    We echo that appeal as we believe the representatives of our school deserve better than the hand that was dealt them.

  • Uniform crisis threatens Chiefland basketball

    If someone doesn't help, Chiefland basketball is in for a tough season.

    Last month, the Chiefland Citizen reported a break-in at the Chiefland High School athletic department, and the theft of some uniforms and equipment. The brief report didn't begin to touch on the loss. The football and basketball programs lost, between them, almost $27,000 in vital gear.

  • Sheriff's Reports

    BRONSON — The following information was supplied by the Levy County Sheriff's Office. The information is taken from incident and arrest reports and court documents.All persons are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law.

  • Indians chop Tigers, get tossed by Rams

    Chiefland boys got off to a great start last Monday with a 61-48 win over Trenton, but slipped a bit the next night, losing to Interlachen 68-64 in overtime.

    The Indians had a great preseason showing, winning both of their games in Williston's Tip-Off Tournament. The away game at Trenton was the first of the regular season, and the Indians played crisply and won easily.

  • Lady Indians struggle against Trenton

    In their season-opening five-point loss to district rival Williston, Chiefland girls played a solid game, leading for a half and putting on a good late rally despite a third quarter collapse. Chiefland looked flat and out of sync Tuesday in an all-over-the-place 48-33 loss at Trenton. An early lead against Williston had allowed them to play with composure; against Trenton, though, their composure was sorely tested, starting, no doubt, with a 17-point first quarter deficit from which they really never recovered.

  • Former EZDA director indicted

     A federal indictment against two suspended Levy County commissioners has been amended to include a third county official: Pam Blair, the recently resigned executive director of Levy County’s Enterprise Zone Development Authority (EZDA).

  • Bronson boys whip short-staffed Newberry

    “Enjoy the win, but keep it in perspective,” said Bronson basketball head coach Aaron Haldeman after his team after beating Newberry 50-34 this past Monday.

    It was the Eagles' home opener, and an expected win; however, the Panthers were still playing football and their squad was depleted accordingly.

    “I think their coach told me he had one varsity regular on the floor,” Haldeman said.

    “Other than that, it was a JV team.”

  • The gas is cheaper over the county line

    To the editor:

    I buy gas for my car in Alachua County. They added a 5 cents per gallon tax this year. I don’t buy gas in Alachua County to give my money to their county. I buy gas in Alachua County because it is cheaper than Chiefland. Anywhere from 11 cents to 20 cents a gallon cheaper.

    I would be helping the seller of Chiefland gas to take advantage of me if I bought gas in Chiefland. Just watch, the price of gas in Chiefland will drop. It always does the day a complaining letter is published - slowly to rise again.
