• Letters Policy

     The Chiefland Citizen welcomes reader input on topics of local interest. To be considered for publication, submissions must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Giving respect to the deceased  

    My husband mentioned to me the other day as we were in the funeral procession with Jerry Prater on our way to Old Town Cemetery that it is so nice to see how many people remember to respect the deceased and the grieving family and friends by pulling off the road while the procession passes by.

  • Stunned by gift's rejection

    I am the organizer of the Southern Flag Pride group. This is relatively a new group established for the protection of the Southern Heritage and for the protection of our civil rights. We have had a very successful run, Williston to Dunnellon, which was mostly successful due to community support.

  • Supports rezoning for RV resort

    Regarding the recreational RV resort on the property owned by Lois Livingston, I would like to mention some reasons for approval that I would like you to consider before judging this project.

    I do not live in the City of Chiefland, but for the past 21 years I have lived on Camp Azalea Road. I have watched many problems occur in the City of Chiefland over these many years. The project will be a most welcomed asset to all of us in this area.

  • Thank you from Iron Butts for Bucks

    I would like to personally thank the individuals and businesses that donated to the 2015 Iron Butts for Bucks event. Without their selflessness this event would not be a possible. We have successfully completed this event three years in a row and we still find donors that are more than willing to give to the cause. Thanks to you all from the riders, the facilities and the recipients of the donations.

  • Rippy Family needs our help

    Tanya and Waylon Rippy are friends of my daughter and their little girl Jaylon has been to our home, with my grand daughter.

    A sturgeon jumped into their boat and struck the mother, son and daughter. The five-year-old daughter died.

    This is a tragedy beyond belief.

    There is a fund set up for them on GoFundMe. Please if you can, contribute to the fund set up to help with the medical and funeral expenses.

  • Pigs and sheep, coming to town!

    Pig and sheep farm, with processing plant coming to Chiefland! I guess big money talks, regardless of any consequences to the environment, right Gov. Scott?

    Since 2014, work has been under way to bring to south of Chiefland, a pig/sheep farm, to process 50 head of livestock per day, and average of 5 per hour, growing to 100 head per day!

  • SVP, Chief need community's help

    First of all, thank you for your involvement in our past seasons – from telling a friend about our shows and enjoying shows from the audience to active participation with your time and finances.

    As you may be aware, our funding is provided by show revenues and donations from individuals and business sponsors. Our board members, directors, cast and crew are not paid for their work at SVP. They are volunteers who invest an average of 1,500 combined hours to stage each community theatre production. We invite you to be a part of our 2015 contribution campaign.

  • Tebow gift of gowns appreciated

    Thank you Tim Tebow for your thoughtful kindness to the people of Levy County recently and more particularly to the young lady prom goers. Because of you, hearts were so pleased and happy.

    You’re one in a million!

  • Standing up for Christianity

    I just read the letter from Mike Owens (Bronson) concerning graduation, and thank you.

    Isn’t it odd how many rules and regulations there seems to be where Christianity is concerned?

    If we dare speak out against another religion — we are hate mongers.

    And as for our inalienable rights, hadn’t you noticed, since the President took office — we haven’t had any?

    We now have Freedom From Religion, ACLU and religions who are ready to kill infidels (Christians) and how many are even standing up for our beliefs?
