  • Murphy Oil fuel set for Chiefland

    When the Chiefland Walmart Supercenter was built it did not include one amenity that others like the Supercenters in Dunnellon and Perry have — a gas station with prices as competitive as those on the merchandise in the stores.
    Some say the reason is that the site of the Walmart is not suitable to house a gas station.
    But the wait for competitive gas prices may be over.
    Murphy Oil USA, Inc. has paid $725,000 for a 1.12 acre site at 2126 N. Young Blvd., according to the Levy County Property Appraiser's website.

  • City commission votes to create recovery zone

    City officials say they want to be the first in line to capitalize on federally issued tax-free bonds.
    City commissioners voted unanimously Monday night to approve a resolution to designate part of the city as a recovery zone—in conjunction with its previously designated status as an enterprise zone.
    Labeling the area as a recovery zone would allow the proposed Tri-County Hospital to take advantage of tax-free revenue bonds, according to City Manager Grady Hartzog.

  • Chiefland soldier's memorial service Saturday

    Army Sgt. Karl A. Campbell, 34, of Chiefland, only had a short time left in Afghanistan before returning home on holiday leave to see his son Carl, 4, his wife and children who were at Fort Campbell, Ky.
    He had already been told that when his tour in the combat zone ended he would be assigned to Special Forces training. It was an opportunity the man had trained for as a Ranger in his first Army stint that he lobbied hard to win.
    On Oct. 4 his dreams and service to this country ended in Babur, Afghanistan.
