  • Superintendent’s Gala is Feb. 7

    The Levy County Schools Foundation (LCSF) will be hosting its annual Superintendent’s Gala on Saturday, Feb. 7.

    The event, which includes dinner and musical entertainment, will take place at 6 p.m. at Chiefland Elementary.

    The Gala is the premier fund-raiser for the Levy County Schools Foundation, a not-for-profit organization established in 1989 to support Levy County schools. The event has become a Levy County tradition, providing an opportunity for members of the business community, civic leaders, and local residents to gather in support of local education.

  • Underground grow house found

    An elaborate underground pot-growing operation that even had its own 100 kilowatt electrical generator has been put out of business and two persons arrested by the Levy County Multi-Jurisdictional Task Force and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.

  • Actions speak louder than words

    To the editor:

    I write this letter in reference to last week’s letter you received from our Levy County Property Appraiser, entitled “Setting the Record Straight”, I too don’t like to air things out through the media and that’s why when I read the statement that said that Mr. Carnegie and myself called a press conference concerning Mrs. Mary Golding being fired, I was shocked. We never called a press conference but we were contacted by the Chiefland Citizen to be interviewed just as Mr. Barker. Therefore it has become necessary for me to respond.

  • This is the week of dibs and dabs

    If the report on the Levy County budget situation was not clear, that’s because it is not. About the only thing that could be divined is that fuel taxes are going down. Sales taxes are also down.

    Granted there will be a hiccup now and then, but overall, expect taxes to keep shrinking.

    The only sure thing is the Board of County Commissioners will be keeping an eye on spending, and the public can expect a discussion on where cuts could be made.

  • Adult business ordinance should get final approval

    The City Commission has approved on first reading what is expected to be the final versions of two ordinances regulating adult entertainment businesses and expects to give final approval to them in late February.

  • BOCC split on landfill director’s authority

    BRONSON —The downsized Levy County Commission had its first dissenting vote when it decided by a 2-1 vote to give Solid Waste Department Director Benny Jerrels permission to sign off on Environmental Protection Agency documents.

    The commission, which normally acts on everything by unanimous vote, disagreed publicly during its regular meeting on Tuesday morning at the county courthouse. Even in the days before two commissioners were suspended after being indicted on federal charges of influence peddling the board rarely had a dissenting vote.

  • Bill Bennett appointed to Conservation Trust board

  • Davis, Hall named All-State for football

    Congratulations Stephen and Chance! Your play made the difference in Chiefland's season.
