  • Softball: Indians’ thump rival Dixie County

    Whatever changes Chiefland High School’s varsity softball team are making, they’re working.

    The Indians’ 10-2 win against Dixie County proved it last Friday night. Amber Richardson dominated on the mound for Chiefland, giving up only one hit and striking out six in her complete game and improving her record to 3-0.

    The rivalry began with both teams at 6-1 this season. Chiefland’s offense made quick work of the Bears, cementing the team’s place as one of District 2A-5’s elite.

  • Baseball: Wasson, Indians batter St. Francis

    Big defensive stops, strong pitching performances and a pesky offense were enough for Chiefland High School’s varsity baseball team to put away St. Francis 11-3 last Friday night.

    Clenton Wasson battered the Wolves, finishing 4-for-5 at the plate with a double, triple and RBI.

    The centerfielder also threw out a St. Francis runner at home to stop a potential rally. Chiefland coach Kyle Parnell considered it the play of the game.

  • Judge to be “invested” Friday

    A formal investiture for newly appointed Levy County Judge James T. “Tim” Browning will be held Friday at 4:30 p.m. in Courtroom A at the Levy County Courthouse.

    The public is welcome to attend the ceremony and the reception that follows in the cafetorium at Hilltop Alternative School behind the courthouse.

    The ceremony, which dates back to feudal times, is a formal ceremony where the judge takes an oath to uphold the U.S. and Florida constitutions and the laws of the state.

  • Decision tabled for fear of setting precedent

    City commissioners decided by consensus on their Feb. 22  meeting to once again table a decision on whether or not the city should help the county collect emergency management service impact fees.

    The fees, an issue first brought before the commission at its meeting on Feb. 8, were adopted by the county in 2008 and would allow the city to keep 2 percent of the fees it helps the county collect from the issuance of building permits within the city.

  • A little more country

    Imagine the roads of the tri-county area. Think about the folks you know. The small towns.

    Set these images to music and you will find them floating through the notes of Easton Corbin’s title song on his new album, “I’m a Little More Country Than That.”

    Those are the roots that run through the album, on the Mercury label,  released on Tuesday.

    For folks in the tri-county area, there can be some pride as Corbin’s roots run deep in the area.

  • Planning board appointment hits unplanned snag

    A proposal to reappoint two members of the county planning board without advertising the positions ran into public opposition and a tempest of words at the usually calm Levy County Board of County Commission meeting on Tuesday.

    Shenley Neeley, head of planning for the county, informed the commission that the four-year terms of Thadus Barber from Commission District 3, represented by Marsha Drew of Yankeetown, and Ron Grant from District 5, represented by Danny Stevens of Williston, will expire on April 30.
