  • Car chase ends in murder suspect's arrest

    Wednesday evening's rush hour took on new meaning as a murder suspect tore through downtown Williston, running vehicles off the road, hitting speeds of up to 100 mph and going the wrong way up Highway 27,  all the while leading about 20 law enforcement vehicles.

  • Robbery at Tackle Box in Fanning Springs

    A Saturday robbery at the Tackle Box in Fanning Springs might have a clerk questioning the cost of good customer service.
    The clerk, according to the Levy County Sheriff's Office, had just locked the front door to tend to business in the back of the store when he heard someone at the front door. He let the man in and went around the counter to serve him.

  • Chiefland 's varsity cheerleaders
  • Chiefland's JV volleyball team undefeated

    After losing the opening game at Dixie County, Chiefland’s junior varsity volleyball team roared back to win the final two sets to remain a perfect 3-0 on the season.

    The team is coached by Tevin Bennett, a 2001 Trenton High graduate who played setter for the Lady Tigers.

    “They played really well tonight,” Bennett said. “They learned a brand new rotation yesterday and still did well. We moved Ashley Davies to libero and that's what changed our rotation.”

  • Indians hit wall

    A few dozen Chiefland faithful applauded and cheered the Indians at the base of the bleachers in Wayne Pridgeon Stadium following Friday's 41-14 loss against Hilliard.

    It was loud. Really loud. But before the game, as players ran onto the field, it wasn't. Neither fans nor players seemed fired up for this one, and the end result was a devastating loss against a team the Indians believed they could've beat.

  • Chiefland's 9-10s secure title trip

    Chiefland’s 9- and 10-year-old football team clinched a spot in the league championship with a 21-14 win against Trenton at Wayne Pridgeon Stadium on Saturday.

    The finals of a league that features teams from the tri-county area will be at 6 p.m. on Oct. 15 in Cross City.

    "It’ll be under the lights, so that’ll be an extra kick for the kids,” said coach Shane Keene.

  • Cappy's Corner: Who cares about sports?

    “They wouldn’t complain if they didn’t care.” That was the response of my first editor when a reader questioned my opinion in a column. That was in Miami, the one in Oklahoma, not in Florida. Where the last syllable of the town’s name is a “muh,” not a “mee.”

  • Lady Indians are good, no joke

    The ball sailed over the heads of Taylore Fuller and Shelby Mills as both were still cracking up at something one said between serves. Hailey Gerhard made a nice dig to save it from the back row, then Meagan Morgan passed it to Fuller, who had stopped smiling in time to hammer home a devastating kill.

  • Bronson, Seven Rivers combine for 1,000 yards

    Seven Rivers Christian won a war of attrition against a Bronson team it had little knowledge of before Friday’s 52-34 victory. With John Iwaniec, the Warriors (2-0) didn’t need to know much as he accounted for six touchdowns and more than 400 yards on running plays and returns.

    As a courtesy, coaches trade game films on the Saturday before they‘ll play one another. Not every high school coach in the country does it, but most do. However, it doesn’t always go according to script.

  • CHS swings into season

    Expectations are high for Chiefland’s golf team with three of its four golfers returning off last season’s squad that finished third in district play.

    “We’re certainly looking to improve on that finish and we have the players to do it,” said CHS second-year golf coach Dave Mitchell. “All three have improved their games and gotten stronger from last year to this year.
