     Bang ... Bang ... Bang.

    Three first-inning home runs paved the way for Jacksonville Providence to knock Chiefland out of the Class 2A regional semifinals with a 10-2 defeat.

    On this trip, we were headed to Jacksonville Providence for the Indians' regional semifinal game against the Stallions.

  • Time to apply for fall special-opportunity hunts

    If you haven’t been seeing the quantity or quality of game you’d like, you may want to consider applying for a special-opportunity hunt.  For the past 14 years, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has offered these unique fall-season hunts for deer, wild hog and released quail on arguably the state’s best public hunting lands.  Maybe it’s time you look into getting in on the action and experience the hunt of a lifetime.
