  • County government – it's heart warming

    In the June 30 issue of the Chiefland Citizen, there was an editorial “Personal agendas? Or betterment of county.”  
    Let’s review the history over the last several years of actions taken by our county government.
    Along with two of our county commissioners being indicted and convicted on corruption charges, we also have a local businessman who it seems instructed an undercover, federal agent on how to grease (coaching) the palms of the local politicians.

  • A little help?

    To whom it may concern,
    My name is Beth Warren and I’m a recent graduate from Chiefland High School, but instead of going to college in the fall I will be taking a “gap year.” I was accepted into a non-profit organization at the beginning of  the summer called Global Citizen Year. Only 50 to 60 students are selected from all over the country.

  • Time for some clarification

    TAXPAYERS!  It is time for a little clarification to the public and public officials.
    Over the past few years, we have had a tremendous budget shortfall that resulted in the previous commissioners being forced to adopt a deficit budget. 
    According to Wikipedia, a budget (from old French bougette, purse) is a list of all planned expenses and revenues. It is a plan for saving and spending.  This deficit budget means that we had to plan to spend about $2 million more than we take in.
    Now for clarification, this happened for several reasons.

  • Partnership of happiness needs two people

    "Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as you have, for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you."  Hebrews 13:5
     A partnership in happiness needs at least two people of the same mind.  Often we see two young people of the same mind. They may fall in  love and get married. Their continued happiness, however, depends on their staying of the same mind.

  • Bronson football needs volunteers

    Bronson starts fall practices on Monday short on staff. Coach Al Cooksey lost two volunteer assistants in the past few weeks and hopes to find more soon.
