  • Kill the messenger, bury the message

    The article by Mrs. Jones, Editor of the Chiefland Citizen, insinuates that I am opposed to a hospital being developed in the Chiefland area. That is absolutely untrue. One is needed, that we all can agree on. Mrs. Jones heard me state that publicly on two separate occasions.  My statement on a "MASH-style" emergency facility to stabilize patients, was suggested to replace the hospital, if it did not materialize.

  • Praise for care

    Dear Jerry (Administrator of the Tri-County Hospital of Williston),
    I met you last Thursday when I was leaving Tri-County Hospital after a three-day stay. Please allow me the opportunity to brag on these members of the hospital staff who were responsible for the positive experience I had during my recent stay in your health care facility in my hometown of Williston.

  • County commission discusses future, past

    Levy County is moving into the 21st Century, while returning to its old ways.
    During the formal meeting Tuesday morning and free-wheeling workshop later, led by Commissioners Ryan Bell, of Chiefland (R-District 2), and Marsha Drew, of Yankeetown, (R-District 3), the commission discussed:

  • CHS softball gets by Bronson

    Taylore Fuller crushed her 15th homer to lead Chiefland to an 11-1 home win against Bronson on Friday.

    Despite the run-rule victory, Chiefland coach Ginger Fuller wasn’t pleased with her team’s readiness to play, especially early.

    “For these games, it’s hard for us to get geared up,” Ginger Fuller said. “That’s the biggest thing for us is it seems it’s hard for them to get amped up for the more familiar opponents.”

  • Cappy's Corner: Enjoy slugger while you can

    Never have I witnessed a player of Taylore Fuller’s caliber. Perhaps Barry Bonds, but the only juice Taylore takes is orange, apple or grape.

    In this week's print edition, we include a graphic called ‘Taylore’s Tally” that will update throughout the remainder of the season as she’s challenging for the national lead for home runs hit by a high school softball player, as far as those who have submitted statistics to MaxPreps.com.

  • Bronson battles Chiefland close

    Bronson thought it caught Chiefland slipping. For the better part of Friday's game in Chiefland, it did. But the Indians pulled away for a 10-2 victory against the steadily improving Eagles that are coached by former CHS player Allen Strickland.

    "They're rusty ... We can get 'em!" shouted a Bronson player from the dugout in the second inning.

  • CHS relays strong at home

    Bell's boys and Branford's girls won the Chiefland Invitational track meet on Thursday. Chiefland's boys finished fourth while the girls tied for fifth in the six-school event.

    In the girls' division, Branford more than tripled its next closest competitor, besting runner-up Cedar Key by 156 points.

  • Football fires up

    Chiefland football coach Jim O'Neal fired up about 60 parents and players during an informational meeting last Tuesday. The spaghetti dinner was hosted by the CHS Quarterback Club in the middle school cafeteria.

    Two of the biggest announcements were the hiring of Carlton Scott as running back/receivers coach and the addition of a junior varsity squad for 2011.
