    R.T. of Chiefland asks, “I don’t have a will, but my children keep telling me I need to get one. I don’t have all that much, just some land, a mobile home, my truck, some guns and a few other things. Do I need a will? And what’s the difference between a will and a living will?”

  • Chiefland girls can't overcome Williston in rematch

    For five innings the softball game played Friday evening between the Chiefland Indians and the Williston Red Devils was all it had been built up to be. After all, both teams were locked up in a three-way tie for the district lead with P.K. Yonge after the Red Devils had beaten Chiefland earlier in the season, P.K. Yonge beat Williston, and the Indians beat the Blue Wave in the first round of district games.

    Williston took a 1-0 first-inning lead, but Chiefland loaded the bases in the top of the second. Amy Biehl drilled a three-run triple to put the Indians on top 3-1.

  • Diamond tribe looks ahead after setback

    After a good run of wins, Chiefland baseball was sorely tested last week by a bad home loss to Taylor County and a 12-2 district loss at Ft. White.

    “We got beat up pretty good up there – ten-runned again,” said Indians' Head Coach Kyle Parnell.

    “Basically they hit the ball and we didn't. They swung the bats well; we hit the ball hard but seemed to hit it right at them. Only about two strikeouts, but whenever we put the ball in play, they just made the plays – give Ft. White the credit.”
