  • Letter: Wishes new commissioner the best

    I want to wish "Cracker" Johnson well as he begins his chore as a County Commissioner.

        As a former Commission Candidate for District 1 in 2008, I campaigned along side of Mr. Blitch and Mr. Macri and they ran a good hard campaign. They spent a lot of money and walked many miles on the campaign trail.

        In my opinion, These two gentlemen should have been appointed to the two empty seats by the Governor. They both garnered a lot of votes.

  • She skips the Drama, preferring to eat cake

    Drama is defined an exciting, emotional or unexpected series of events or set of circumstances. Most of us know that. But there are so many of us who live it. Drama. With a capital “D”.

    In any environment, whether it’s school, work, family or social, there’s always Drama. Most people keep it to themselves, handle it privately and we never know what is going on.

    But then there are those who over exaggerate everything and thrive on the crisis of the minute. You know them too.

  • Letter: Thank you from Abraham Blitch

    Dear Levy County,

        Hello, it’s me again, the short, fat, hairy legged guy with the big hat. Words will never express the gratitude my family and I have for you.

        We must say "thank you" again to the 8,818 Voters last November. We were humbled and blessed then and continue to be today by those who have fought for almost nine more months for my Appointment. Thank You for your prayers and words of encouragement.

  • Letter: Not happy with Senate choices

    To the Editor:

        The resignation of Senator Mel Martinez is insignificant since he was a lackluster RINO (Republican In Name Only) and did not properly represent the best interests of the State of Florida and the United States.

  • Hot enough for football

    Chiefland football (and everything else) coach emeritus C. Doyle McCall poked his head through the film room door into the crowded weight room and surveyed the landscaped crammed with camp cots. He smiled as he walked through the room and shook hands with veteran Indian linemen Alex English and Cason Nessmith.

    Asked for his prediction on the season, he asked, “How do I think we're going to do this year?”

    “I'd like us to go 10-0 and get back into the playoffs. I don't know if you'd call that a prediction, but that's what I'd like.”

  • Beck, Wilson take head basketball spots at CHS

    At last, Chiefland High School has finally been able to name its two varsity basketball coaches.

    Mike Beck, a retired basketball, track and cross country coach from Pinellas County, will coach the varsity boys. Chiefland's athletic director Chris Wilson, who took over that post in 2005, will be the varsity girls' coach. They are assuming posts last held by Mark Lundy and Emily Gore, respectively.

  • Run fast and don't stop

    When Genesis Cilo-Cilo heads down to Nova Southeastern University later this month, he'll carry his racing spikes and the hopes of his proud parents and family. Cilo-Cilo, the oldest of four children in his family, had an outstanding senior season as a sprinter at Chiefland and earned himself a track scholarship to Nova.

    Although he started off running the one- and two-mile distances, it didn't take Cilo-Cilo long to discover the short track.

    “I ran the longer races as a freshman, but the next year I got to try sprinting,” he says.

  • Lady Eagles off to a good start

    Just in time for the start of fall practice, Bronson volleyball held camp last week. SUNY Buffalo assistant coach Andreza Santos spent three days last week with the Lady Eagles, working on all aspects of their game, from defense to hitting. Santos, a former All-ACC outside hitter for Florida State University, was coaching for the FAMU Lady Rattlers volleyball team when she conducted the camp at Bronson last year.

    “It was a great opportunity for us to have Andreza here again,” said Bronson volleyball head coach Kelly Watkins.
