  • Indians' Boyd named top basketball coach

    Chiefland Indians boys basketball coach Adam Boyd has been named the 1A Boys Basketball Coach of the Tear by a vote of his peers in the Florida Basketball Coaches Association.

    Boyd, who led the Indians to district, and regional titles this past season and the state Final Four, has been head basketball coach for three years. The team suffered only two defeats in the past season, one against a 5A school and the other against perennial title contender Malone who went on to win the state title.

  • Double Whammy at the Double F

    When it came time to wean calves from their mothers, several things happened. First, you separated the bull calves from the heifers. The bulls were castrated. The calves were marked and branded and then put together in another pasture behind the cow pen.

    The cows were turned out into the main pasture, and there were two fences between the calves and their mothers. It took from daylight to almost dark, plus five cowboys to get this done. As assistant manager of the Double F, it was my job to see the calves and cows stayed apart until they got over being weaned.
