  • When people are needing, a day of work can help

    To the editor:

    My grandmother had many sayings she liked to repeat to us growing up. One of her favorites was “everyone can afford soap and water.” I always thought this to be true until recently. Like many others, I was laid off earlier this year. At first I was not worried, I’m a hard worker with great references. I thought I could get another job very soon. That was over five months ago.

  • Bob Williams says 'thanks' for letting him serve you

    To the editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank each participant and those who had the desire but were not able to participate in this year’s Christmas and Winter Festival.

    I would also like to thank the business leaders and members of the Greater Chiefland Area Chamber of Commerce for entrusting its leadership to me twice over the past five years.

    I am stepping down this year, but stepping up to the challenge of bringing and supporting businesses within our area.

  • Woodworker hones his craft in cedar and cypress

    BRONSON — Jackie Strickland was enjoying gently rocking in the chair.

    “A buddy of mine got me started 10 years ago,” he said.

    “I do all the work myself. It’s all hands on by me.”

    “I log my own wood, mill it and cure it out,” he says. That’s an investment of a year’s time from cutting to rocking.

    Strickland obtains his wood by taking down trees for property owners. He will cut the tree and haul the wood, he says, but the owners must haul the brush left by the job.

    Our Chiefland Indian roundballers are suffering. Several weeks ago the teams’ uniforms were stolen and to date they have not been recovered.

    Last week Sports Editor Jenna McKenna detailed the plight of our student athletes and made an appeal for the community to help.
