    It was a night that unfolded in familiar ways for the Chiefland football team.

    The Indians showed their gritty spirit, led by a proud group of seniors who suited up for the final time in the Columbia Blue and Gold, but ultimately lacked the firepower to keep up with a talented opponent.

  • Halloween pays for children’s Christmas

    It took a little bit of Halloween, the hard work of volunteers, the support of the Suwannee Valley and Chiefland Rotary Clubs, the donations of businesses and an old warehouse to make Christmas a little brighter this year for some Chiefland area families.

    This unusual recipe of using one holiday celebration to fund another is the genius idea of the Chiefland Police Department officers and staff who created a Halloween Haunted House in the old, vacant 9,000 square foot warehouse owned by Central Florida Electric Cooperative.
