  • 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.

  • 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:

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Donors:

  • 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?

  • May is Juror Appreciation Month

    On behalf of the judges and staff of the Eighth Judicial Circuit, I’d like to express my appreciation to those who have answered the call for jury duty.  I understand it’s not always a convenient or welcome duty, but it is a critical part of our court system. Since the birth of our great nation, the right of an individual to be heard by a jury of their peers, has been considered an essential element of our democracy.

  • Letters to the Editor for January 29

    Let's outsmart the state

    In a report by the University of Florida, the white-tailed deer is identified as the most economically important big game mammal in North America and Florida.

    In 2011, over $50 billion was spent on deer hunting in the United States. That is a lot of money.

    In an effort to keep increasing the one spent on hunting, the state of Florida continues to increase the number of days doe deer can be killed.

  • Thanks yous from a family, Chamber

    Thanks, from the family

    The family of John Rutledge thanks each person who participated in the planning and presentation of the dedication of the Bronson High School football field to John Rutledge.
