  • Chiefland volleyball playoff bound

    Behind a dominating performance by senior Takiya London, the Chiefland volleyball team punched it ticket to the state playoffs Tuesday in Newberry for the third straight year.

    The No. 2-seeded Lady Indians swept No. 3 seed Branford – 25-15, 25-20, 25-13 – in convincing fashion for a 3-0 win in the District 1A-7 semifinals, earning them a bid to Thursday’s district final against top seed Newberry at 7 p.m. in the NHS gym.

  • Historic Drummond farmhouse serves as backdrop for Saturday’s Haven benefit

    The Drummond Farmhouse at Rocky Hammock Preserve in Chiefland makes its return as the host site for the 10th Annual Fall at the Farm to Benefit Haven Hospice this Saturday, Oct. 22, and its vintage treasures from the 1800s are sure to make it a special night.

    Its many historical pieces are too many for even their owners Luther and Kay Drummond to recount, but volunteer guides will be on hand before the start of the fundraising event and to help inform guests of the history behind the various items.

  • Senior slam

    The Chiefland volleyball team had no problem juggling multiple tasks on senior night last Tuesday against Bell.

    The Indians wanted to make the season finale a special night for their seniors in front of their home crowd, and, with this week’s district tournament looming, they also wanted to end the regular campaign on a high note, after losing four of their five previous matches.

  • On to the next one

    After watching Bronson threaten to upset higher-seeded Branford in earlier District 1A-7 tournament quarterfinal action on Monday in Newberry, the Chiefland volleyball squad decided to skip the intrigue and dispense with No. 7 seed Dixie County in straight sets – 25-7, 25-12, 25-10 – in the day’s late match.

  • Bronson volleyball gives scare to Branford in district quarterfinals

    Despite losing twice in 3-1 matches to third-seeded Branford during the regular season, No. 6 seed Bronson proved to be a handful for Branford in the opening round of the District 1A-7 volleyball tournament on Monday in Newberry.

    With solid defensive play and a formidable service game against the hard-hitting Buccaneers (9-4 in district play), the Eagles (2-11 in district play) prevailed in two of the first three sets to put themselves on the brink of an upset and a huge shakeup of the district bracket.

  • Voter registration deadline Tuesday, Oct. 18

    The deadline to register to vote is Tuesday, Oct. 18, at the Supervisor of Elections Office at 421 S Court. St., in Bronson.

    The office will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

    The original deadline to register was one week ago, Oct. 11, and Supervisor Tammy Jones had extended hours that day to accommodate those who work out of the county, but she will not be doing it on Tuesday due to last week's low response.

  • Chiefland JV ends season on high note

    Chiefland’s junior varsity football team enjoyed a fitting send off to its season last Tuesday, as it rolled to a 54-22 romp in its finale against Jasper-Hamilton County at C. Doyle McCall Field at Wayne Pridgeon Stadium.

    The convincing win was spearheaded by a five-touchdown performance from freshman quarterback and return specialist Ty Corbin.

    “They came to practice everyday to try to get better, and they worked hard,” said Lee Bell, the head JV coach. “They wanted to be good.”

  • Silver Linings

    After his team’s third district loss at Dixie County in Cross City last Thursday, Chiefland head football coach Aaron Richardson told his team there were no excuses, but that he understood the difficult challenges it faced over the last three weeks.

    The Indian offense mostly struggled out of the gate, while the Bears hit pay dirt on six of their first seven possessions on the way to a 41-15 win at Bruce Boyette Stadium.
