  • FFA comes clean with soap sale this week

    The FFA is selling 5 gallon buckets of laundry soap for $40 apiece. There is also detergent pods, fabric softener, and dish soap available for various prices. Please take a minute and look at the order form if interested in getting some. I purchased some at the beginning of the year from another FFA chapter and have found it to be of a good quality.

  • Lady Indians pull out a close one on Senior Night

    It was Senior Night on Monday and the Chiefland Lady Indians were losing in the fifth inning 7-3 to Crystal River.

    This seemed to be the turning point! I have never seen a team play so well under pressure. This is a great thing for coaches as usually it is the coaches that have to have a pep talk or make a team believe in themselves.

    This team of Lady Indians get out on the field and at bat and take care of business. I am not sure that I have seen a position they have been put in where they cave under pressure.

  • Football alumni can relive glory days

    The gauntlet has been thrown down. Bragging rights are on the line.

    It’s the gridiron battle between Chiefland and Dixie County to end them all as alumni will take the field on May 7 at 7 p.m.

    At stake are pride, bragging rights and probably a few sore muscles. This is full contact football under the lights.

  • Celebrate Gopher Tortoise on Sunday

    Gopher tortoises live in every county of Florida and are known for their extraordinary digging skills.

  • Lady Indians getting wiser as district draw near

    The Chiefland Lady Indians just keep looking better and better! 

    Overall they are 20-1 and that loss was to Mayo who they have already beaten since.  In the district they are still undefeated and nationally ranked at 267 and State ranked at 37.  If you haven’t seen them in action yet, come on out for a game against Oak Hall in Gainesville on Friday at 7 p.m.

    On the road last week they shut out Bronson with a score of 11-1.

  • Track team meets Trenton today Districts coming up next

    Chiefland Indians track Coach Harry Hutson says the team is ready to meet Trenton at home this afternoon at 3:30 p.m., but the tracksters have their eyes on the district meet that is coming up in two weeks.

    The Indians are just coming off a great performance in the County Championship Track Meet in Cedar Key on Monday where they won the boys and girls overall titles.

    “That County Championship in Cedar Key — Brad Penny does a good job of hosting it,” Hutson said. “He has done a good job of carrying track and field in this county.”

    The Indians have two games scheduled, including a matchup tonight against the Trenton Tigers at 7 p.m., after playing the Dixie County Bears on Monday.
