  • Wildcats’ Solomon runs over struggling Indians

    Having three offensive players run for more than 100 yards each is always a good thing.

    When the opponent’s running back nearly matches that on only 10 carries? Not so good.

    Wildwood’s Desmon Solomon torched Chiefland for 287 yards and three monster touchdowns in the Wildcats 35-25 win against the Indians last Friday in both teams’ District 1A-5 opener. The Indians had more than 365 yards of total offense, yet crucial missed tackles and missteps put the game out of reach.

  • Errors doom Bronson in 22-14 defeat

    Bell capitalized on Bronson’s mistakes last Friday night to top the Eagles, 22-14.

    But Bronson (0-4) looked sharp early with a 10-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Kelby Barber to Quentell Coleman. Raymie Powers added the extra point and the Eagles took a 7-0 lead with 6:53 remaining in the first quarter.

    Bell responded quickly with 65-yard run from Bradley Denham to even the score. 

    Bell took the lead in the second quarter with a 13-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Daniel Heck to James Oslager.

  • Volleyball: Chiefland falls in struggle against Trenton

    Chiefland battled Trenton in three tough games last Tuesday, but the Tigers capitalized on Indians 

    mistakes and big scoring runs to win the match in three games, 25-22, 25-18, 25-17.

    In Game 1, Chiefland fought to gain a quick 6-5 lead, led by some big dives and digs from Kaylee Ecker. Trenton kept pace to tie the game at 11, yet Chiefland later made a run to take a 21-19 lead. But Trenton gained momentum to take Game 1, 25-22.

    After a long, tough Game 2 went to the Tigers, Trenton jumped to a 14-5 lead in Game 3. 

  • Good News: From an acorn, a revolution grows

    For years now a crescendo has been rising in politics of angry people wanting to stem the tide of this or that.  They rail. They rant. They wave placards.  They talk about bringing back the Bonnie Blue flag of the West Florida rebellion. There's talk of buying guns, learning to shoot straight, hoarding ammunition, stocking up on food and preparing for  a rebellion. No socialism. No liberals. No communists. No health reform. No ACORN. Whoops! Wait!

  • Letter: Some good news in tough times

    These are tough times for seniors, especially those relying on Social Security for all or most of their income.  According to 2008 AARP data, more than half of Florida’s three million Social Security beneficiaries rely on Social Security for half or more of their income, and for three of every 10 beneficiaries, Social Security is their only source of income. Each year, as these Floridians look through their checkbooks to figure out how to pay for the rising costs we all face, they take small comfort in knowing that Social Security provides a very mode

  • Letter: Crist should resign to run

      In the most recent presidential election there were numerous politicians running for the office of president while still collecting their full pay as senators from their respective states.  It’s a sweet deal that allows you to receive  full pay and not even show up for work while looking for a new job. Here in Florida we have a similar situation with our own Charlie Crist campaigning to be a U.S.

  • Letter: Restore classic 89

    There are many of us in the North Florida area who would very much like the music/talk mix of the former Classic 89 to be restored to WUFT-FM's high-power analog station. Classic 89, with its mix of musical genres and news/talk, was a tremendous cultural asset for the entire 21-county area of North Florida.  The very limited and problematic HD2 and online streaming of classical music is far from an adequate replacement.  Most areas within the range of WUFT-FM's analog station do not receive the HD2 signal at all.

  • Health Council makes plans for seasonal flu shots

    The School Health Advisory Council held its first meeting of the 2009-10 school year Tuesday to discuss the previous school year’s successes as well as plans for keeping students healthy. The council, made up of nurses and health officials from the Levy County school district,   spent much of its meeting talking through the districts upcoming plans for prevention of both seasonal flu and swine flu.
