Today's News

  • John Anderson

    Our family was at the Martin County Fair in Stuart where country star John Anderson was playing that night.

    While waiting in line for the concert, a young lady said to come with her and took us to a tent behind the stage and said Mr. Anderson would be out momentarily.

    There was a large table of food and we were told to help ourselves, which our four-year-old son John promptly did.

    When Mr. Anderson walked up, our son's face was smeared with strawberries and Anderson laughed, stooped down and asked his name.

  • Anthony Green

    I encountered a celebrity while at a concert in Orlando. My boyfriend, Tyler Hart, and I went to see a band called Circa Survive play at a local club. During the show, my boyfriend lifted me up above the crowd and they proceeded to shove me onstage while the band was playing. I rolled over to stand up and was face to face with the lead singer, Anthony Green.

    I tried to say something but I was too astonished to even utter a word. I touched his arm and then the security guard grabbed me and guided me backstage. I was definitely star-struck.

  • Starstruck? But of course

    When I sent out the call for celebrity sightings, someone asked what I was looking for.

    My response: I'm not sure, but we'll see what defines celebrity to people.

    I was right.

    Most of the names you submitted I was aware of. Some were a little more obscure and I had to do my own Internet research to educate myself on names like Brenda Fraizer and Anthony Green.

  • Streets considered for improvements

    After Chiefland City Engineer Lee Mills spent an hour telling the City Commission about roads that might be paved, City Manager Grady Hartzog Sr. listed four he saw as best candidates during the Feb. 25 commission meeting.

    The four roads Hartzog listed are all the city can afford now, he said, but Finance and Projects Coordinator Laurie Copeland is working to obtain Community Development Block Grants. These CDBGs are for water, sewer, fire hydrants and some paving, she said.

  • Kipnis pleads for end to global warming

    If we're to protect the environment, we have to take action now.

    That was the plea Saturday when Capt. Dan Kipnis spoke on global warming to members and guests at the Annual Open House of the Lower Suwannee and Cedar Key National Wildlife Refuge and Annual Meeting of the Friends of the Refuge.

  • Star Struck
  • CMS Braves improve record to 4-0

    The Chiefland Middle School baseball team improved its record to 4-0 with a doubleheader victory over visiting Lake Butler on Tuesday, Feb. 19.

    The first game was 5-3, while the nightcap was 8-1.

    Alden Davis led the hit parade in game one, as he was 2-for-3 at the plate. Those getting one hit were Shaquille Patterson, Kody Plemmons and Kaleb Caplin. Deric Allen was the winning pitcher, going five innings. Caplin fired two effective relief frames.

  • Indian rally stuns Jones, Tigers

    From the get-go, it looked like it was going be Andy Jones' night.

    The left-handed ace of the Trenton High pitching staff was simply mowing through the Chiefland Indian lineup last Friday night, keeping Indians off balance with his masterful command of fastball, curve and change-up.

    But silently, his Chiefland mound counterpart –Jeremy Hayes –was also getting the job done.

    Some sloppy play in the field helped Trenton grab a first inning lead, but Hayes kept working hard on the hill to keep his team within striking distance.
