  • Despite late push, Branford stomps Bronson

    Bronson’s offense came alive in the second half, scoring 24 unanswered points last Friday night against Branford.

    It’s a shame the Eagles were already down 57-0 when the scoring started.

    Branford pummeled visiting Bronson 63-24, totaling 367 rushing yards as team and hammering the Eagles’ defense early.

    The Buccaneers also capitalized early on Bronson’s mistakes, opening the scoring with a 65-yard punt return for a score by John Perry after the Eagles’ first drive stalled. A two-point conversion gave Branford a quick 8-0 lead.

  • Chiefland: Home to safe money

    While most of us are flabbergasted at what is happening with the big Wall Street firms taking risks, enriching themselves and gorging at the government trough, we should remember this isn't the first time folks felt like the money changers deserved a good flogging.

    TheStreet.com rates 98 percent of Florida's banks as not so healthy.

    An Oct. 14 article on TheStreet said of 293 banks and thrifts still existing in the state, only seven had recommended ratings. It's important to note that TheStreet.com is respected for its conservative bank rankings.

  • Letter: Chiefland needs animal protection laws

    Some time ago while mowing a vacant lot on the south east side of Chiefland I observed a brown medium sized dog chained up under some trees next door.

    After looking closer I realized this animal had no shelter from the weather.

    I contacted the Humane Society of Levy County who informed me they had no responsibility for the City of Chiefland. I then contacted the appropriate people in Chiefland who informed me there was no requirement for the shelter of animals.

  • Refuge Week seeks to enlighten visitors

    The sunlight strained at the edges between clusters of bromeliad-laden tupelo trees, water oaks and cabbage palms.  

    Thin shafts of light breaking through the canopy revealed flitting birds and clouds of mosquitoes hovering over black water dotted with the heart-shaped leaves of cow lilies.

    Snakes, in search of prey, slithered in and out of the murk below, and fiddler crabs scurried over rocks and tiny islands of gnarled tree roots.
