  • Wake up call

  • Scott stinks

    I would almost put Gov. Scott and Terry Jones in the same category: people who should know better but still bumble along; unraveling in just a few months all the beneficial achievements for our state and country that others before them took years to accomplish.

  • AMVETS support hospital

    At the AMVETS Post No. 422  general meeting on August 13, a motion was made by Dennis Harden, which was seconded, and unanimously approved by the membership. The motion being that AMVETS Post No. 422 endorses and supports Ameris Health Services in its efforts to construct and organize a functional healthcare facility namely, the Tri-County Hospital in Chiefland.

  • Tarmac — It's about water

    Tarmac wins, Levy loses. A few years from now, Levy commissioners and planners will be quoting Bill Clinton who, when asked about NAFTA, said, "It sounded like a pretty good deal at the time.”
    I came from Manatee County 26 years ago. I saw what happened there. Water wells freely flowed for farmers, no pumps, when I was a kid.

  • Tarmac good for Levy

    My husband and I live off State Road 337 southeast of Bronson and have been residents of Levy County since 2002.
    Since this time we have seen businesses come and businesses go in Bronson, Williston and also in Chiefland.
     It is the people who live and work locally who make our communities strong, and jobs locally are needed to keep these people here.

  • Sports guy scores with stories

    My name is Susie Slaughter, and I have a son that plays baseball for Chiefland High School. 
    It is his senior year and he has been on the varsity team for four years. I just wanted to thank you and all others for allowing Mike to publish the sports in your paper. 
    I have been a teacher for 36 years in Chiefland and have never seen so much coverage for baseball. 
    Thank you again and thanks to Mike Capshaw.

  • Tarmac mine a good thing

    I have lived in Levy County for most of my life.  I wanted to be sure that my son was raised in this area because to me it is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and this community means a lot to me.
    Two years ago, I was approached by Tarmac to come take some photos of the areas surrounding their planned operation.  I was employed by an environmental consulting firm and asked if an environmental scientist could join me on the trip. I didn’t want to be associated with a project if it was going to hurt my community.

  • About the hospital

    This hospital would serve three counties. We really need a hospital in Chiefland. I have personally signed petitions and phoned former Governor Charlie Crist trying to get a hospital built here.
    If you suffer from a life threatening disease or have a heart attack, by the time you get to Gainesville, through the traffic and red lights, you are dead.  I don’t know how many people have died trying to get to the hospitals in Gainesville.
    Now, let’s all get behind Ameris and get us a hospital in Chiefland!

  • Easter's for church

    It's Easter time; time for cute little bunnies, baskets full of goodies, fluffy little chicks and ducklings. When I was much, much younger, I had colored chicks, one pink, one lavender. Unfortunately, one of them ran backward a lot and died soon after. The other, I named her Henrietta, grew up to be a fine Rhode Island Red (naturally colored).
    Easter is also the time to buy a new Easter outfit, complete from head to toe. After all, that's what Easter is about, right?

  • Thanks Levy County
