  • Engineering firm could solve sewer woes

    BRONSON –The Town of Bronson, like a lot of people, could use a quick $14-18 million.

    Unlike most people, Bronson wants to spend it on expanding its sewer capacity. New Mayor Franklin Schuler said it is a priority.

    Only 15 percent of the residential homes in Bronson have sewer service. The rest are on septic systems.

    Schuler and other Town Council members were pretty much left scratching their heads on how to solve the problem. Grant money already had been exhausted and borrowing the money would be the only solution, he thought.

  • What will we do with the building?

    The octagon-shaped building near the Chiefland Fire Rescue Station should be preserved, Mayor M. Teal Pomeroy said Oct. 22, because of its historical significance.

    Commissioner Sammy Cason said he registered to vote there in 1959 with Luther Callaway, whose title was "an inspector" related to elections, according to records. Back then, the building was located in the center of the city park near the place where the Building and Zoning Building is today, Cason said.

    The building once housed the Chiefland Area Athletic Association, according to a press release from the city.

  • Beware of bogus GEDs

    You've seen the late night TV commercials - lose weight fast ... become a millionaire overnight ... take this pill and become a super stud.

    Quick fixes - they never seem to really work, do they?

    Dennis Radice, a professor at Central Florida Community College-Levy Center, says the same applies for GEDs.

    He's noticed a recent wave of locals paying hundreds of dollars for online GEDs.

    The people who did it said it's a quick and easy way to get that all-important piece of paper.

    Radice says those pieces of paper are worthless.
