  • Our View: Worthy cause

    Kudos Chiefland City Commissioners.
    Bet they never imagined they'd see that in this space, but it's certainly warranted after commissioners went to bat for one of the best programs in the city.
    Commissioners voted unanimously to waive a $180 rental fee normally charged for use of the Tommy Usher Pineland Center for the College of Central Florida Levy Center to have its GED graduation.
    We think that was a brilliant move and hope the commissioners will waive the fee every time there's a GED graduation until the CF Levy Center builds its campus.

On both occasions, I was told I could “defer” those payments until the end of the loan for a small fee.
