  • Oysters safe from proposed FDA ban, for now

    Oysters on the Gulf Coast — including those in lugged by Cedar Key water men — are safe from a proposed federal Food and Drug administration “warm months” ban for now.

    Leslie Sturmer, multi-county aquaculture extension agent, briefed the Levy County Commission on Tuesday on the status of a proposed rule requiring post-harvest processing of oysters or an outright ban on the harvest and sale of oysters from Gulf of Mexico waters from April through October beginning in 2011.

  • Buy local now before it's too late

    The Christmas season is upon us.

    The Christmas lights are up in Chiefland.

    A radio station is playing Christmas music.

    A local store is having a “Christmas Sale 40% to 50% off”

    I don't care if if it's a discounted  holiday or merchandise.

    I'm a sucker for stuff at a nice discount.

    My wish list is the same as last year's. I want that  “Five-Pound Box of Money” singer Pearl Bailey rhapsodizes. She tells Santa it would be useful and is loaded with lots of sentiment.

  • Column: Change does not mean an end to the free stuff

    You have probably noticed the changes at the Chiefland Citizen.

    First, two new guys moved in. We went from having a newsroom dominated by women to a boys’ club.

    There has been tinkering with the design  and content to make it more interesting and useful. One noticeable change is the teasers at the top of Page 1.

    Then there’s the electronic changes at the website, www.chieflandcitizen.com; the Twitter feed, News4Levy; the Facebook page, Chiefland Citizen; and the email blast for those who register at our website.

  • Letter: Thank you from CAAA

    Once again the community of Chiefland has stepped up to provide a service for our children. Through the efforts of Chiefland Area Athletic Association’ volunteers and the businesses of Chiefland, our annual Halloween Carnival was a huge success. CAAA started the Halloween Carnival 11 years ago to offer parents and the community an alternative to door-to-door Trick or Treating. Chief Douglas ensures that our carnival is a safe place by assigning city policemen to monitor the area.
