  • Grief delays replacing Teal Pomeroy

    Changes were made to the Chiefland City Commission but one change just could not be made.  The death of Mayor Teal Pomeroy, which left a vacancy on the five-member commission will not be filled until October.  Commissioner Teresa Barron, who was first elected to the commission at the same time as Pomeroy, 2004, summed up the commioners' feelings.   “I'd rather wait.

  • Chiefland set to finally open season

    In addition to all of the damage and disruption wrought by Hurricane Hermine, last Friday’s high school football slate, including Chiefland’s season opener, was also dampened, as county games were cancelled.

    Aaron Richardson’s Indians are now in the unusual position of playing their opener in the third week of the season – following a bye in the first week due to a cancellation over the summer – as they take the field at C. Doyle McCall Field at Wayne Pridgeon Stadium this Friday against Arlington Country Day of Jacksonville.

  • Stuff it

    Takiya London doesn’t have the luxury of indulging in senioritis for her final year at Chiefland.

    The 6-foot-2 multi-sport star is too busy making college visits, playing weekend fall ball, and trying to help lead her volleyball squad back to the final four.

    Volleyball was more of a stopgap for London in the past – a way to keep in shape and hang out with her friends – but that’s starting to change.

    The whale was taken away by the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers for an autopsy.

    The only other reported casualty was an injury to a Florida Highway Patrol trooper who was helping with tree removal operations along State Road 121 and County Road 326. Her injury was not life threatening.

    Then the board went on to approve hearing a non-agenda item on extending the order another seven days. When asked why it was not being extended a full 14 days, County Attorney Anne Bast Brown said that is the limit by the state.
