  • Ride to Provide returns Saturday,Oct. 25

    It started out as a visit by deputies to the LARC Center in Otter Creek.

    "We were asked to come out to talk to the clients," Sheriff's Lt. Sean Mullins told the Chiefland Rotary Club on Sept. 17. "I didn't know what to expect."

    He said the officers walked through the door and the adults started clapping.

    One thing he learned that day has stuck with Mullins: "They appreciate everything."

    Then came the idea of how cool it would be to ride bikes out to the center to show the clients.

    The Lady Red Devils were on the road last Thursday as they traveled to take on the Chiefland Indians. Williston put together three competitive games but were unable to take home a victory against their rivals.

  • Indians travel to West Nassau tonight

    If you were to look at the stat sheet between Friday night’s district contest between the Newberry Panthers and the Chiefland Indians, you would see that these were two very evenly matched and similar football teams. You would also see that defense ruled most of the night as both teams had just less than 200 yards of total offense. However, one statistic does jump out at you, 99 yards, which is how long Newberry athlete Jason Franklin took the opening kickoff back for a touchdown; this proved to be the difference as the Panthers handed the Indians a tough district loss, 17-13.
