  • Jenkins transferring from Bronson to The Rock

    A family member has confirmed that DeVaughn Jenkins, one of the top basketball players in the region, has decided to transfer from Bronson High to The Rock in Gainesville.

    This is quite a blow to a Bronson Eagles team that struggled despite Jenkins averaging a double-double as a freshman this past season. The 6-foot-7 guard/forward even recorded a pair of triple-doubles, putting up double digits in points, rebounds and blocked shots.

  • 'Chiefland 3' continue climbing combine ladder

    Three Chiefland football players were not on college coaches’ radars before this summer. That certainly has changed as the trio of Quan Coffee, Jeremy McClellan and Alphonzo Timmons has advanced to the third stage of Schuman’s National Underclassmen Combine. 

    After impressive showings at the NUC in Orlando, they were invited to the Ultimate 100 Camp in Atlanta last month. Strong performances by all three there have resulted in them being invited to the Elite 22 Combine in Oklahoma on July 23-24.

    Taylore Fuller may be the first player in any sport from Chiefland High School to earn All-American honors. 

    Fuller, a junior catcher who is verbally committed to the University of Florida, was named to Louisville Slugger's All-American team last week by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association. She also was named to the All-Region first team by the NFCA and was a 2A first-team All-State selection by the Florida Athletic Coaches Association.

  • Economic development council loses director

    The Nature Coast Business Development Council asked for the resignation of its fifth director since its incorporation in 2000 during a contentious, and sometimes angry, meeting June 28.
    Pat O'Neal, who was hired one year ago, was told to submit his resignation by July 1 in a 6-0-1 vote with its newest member abstaining. O'Neal was given 24 hours to respond to the demand that he resign.

  • County commission questions tourism grants

    When Carol McQueen steps up to the podium at the Levy County Commission meetings she usually gets an automatic pass — no questions asked — on her request.
    Things were different on Tuesday when she sought approval of six advertising grants — none over $3,000, and commissioners asked questions before approving the grants. The grants, funded by the 2 percent tax on transient lodgings, were recommended for approval by the Tourist Development Council.
