  • Training up a child in this day

    By GUY SHEFFIELD

  • Wanting support

    Hi, I'm Lashae Smith, and I live right here in Chiefland. I'm trying to be an actor, singer, dancer and model. I was selected out of hundreds of other contestants and received a call back to attend AMTC, an acting, modeling and talent competition. It's a Christian company that's been in business for 26 years. It's pretty famous, and I'm excited about it. I will be seen by agents from around the world who have launched thousands of careers.

  • Drug testing an insult

    While acting as branch librarian, and the only employee, I recruited and trained several volunteers. Many years later, when retiring, the volunteers stayed on. Operating the library without volunteers was almost impossible.
    After a few years of driving for Meals on Wheels, and training for the old VOICE program at the Levy County Sheriffs Department, and for Guardian Ad Litem, (both of which required finger printing), I noticed the library was in need of volunteers.

  • Community gardens need support

    I firmly believe in the concept of community gardens as a way of supplying healthy produce and providing much needed exercise for the gardeners. It is an excellent educational tool to teach children, and some adults, where our food comes from and how difficult it can be to produce. If done correctly, a community garden is a valuable addition to an area.

  • Save Gulf Hammock

     Once upon a time in Levy County, there was a great and wondrous place called Gulf Hammock. The rivers, streams, and springs ran clear and free. The flora and fauna was the richest in the land. One could walk for miles and not see another human being, or any kind of structure to impede their vision while taking in all that nature had to offer. It acted as a buffer for the riches of Waccasassa Bay.

  • Fill in survey for Tri-County Hospital

    For some time the citizens of the tri-county area have expressed support for the development of a full-service hospital in Chiefland, The purpose of this letter is to bring you up to date on the progress of the project and to ask you to participate in a short survey that can be found on page B5 of the Chiefland Citizen.

  • Tarmac a good employer

    Three years ago I was hired by Tarmac as a receptionist to work part time in their Inglis office. I was already working one part-time job, so the extra work with Tarmac was really helpful. It allowed me to basically work full-time, which is hard to do in this economy since there just aren't many good jobs available. My job with Tarmac was even more important when I got laid off from my other job two years ago. It would have been difficult working only part time I would have only working part-time, but Tarmac increases my hours to make up for part of my lost hours.
