  • Fanning can make its own decisions

    I have read the Citizen's front page story on fire department issues dated April 7, 2011. These are my personal thoughts from the article.

  • Limit Direct Payments in 2012 Farm Bill

    With Congress hammering out budget cutting legislation and preparing to take up the 2012 farm bill, the next two years emerge as a crucial time for making commonsense cuts to agriculture spending. For federal farm programs, that means placing hard caps on payments made to the nation’s largest farms, subsidies those operations use to drive their smaller neighbors out of business.

  • Kudos for Capshaw

    I feel compelled to let you know how much I have enjoyed the sports coverage in your paper.  I believe Mr. Capshaw is responsible for making this happen.  Never before have the students had so much coverage.  

  • Ashamed and proud

    I am proud of the fifty or sixty people who stayed until 2 a.m. today to object to the Tarmac Mine.

  • Wasted time at Tarmac hearing

    On April 4, I and about 100 other concerned folks wasted 7 hours of our lives speaking at a Levy County planning board public hearing against approval for a Special Exception for a 100-year mega-mine in southwest Levy county.  Why was our time simply wasted?

  • A good-natured deputy

    Dear Sheriff Smith,
    As we were driving through Chiefland on Feb. 19, around 2:30 p.m., we experienced a blowout on our right front tire. Well, you can imagine our concern driving from Wisconsin (Packer country) to Orlando with not only our luggage but our children's luggage, as well. Just think about the unpacking of the trunk, alone.

  • Pet adoption not a matter of age

  • Statements need fact checking

  • Thank you

    Providence Ministries and New Beginning Baptist Church would like to thank the community for their support of the benefit held for Jayne Rocks on Saturday, March 19. Thanks to your generosity, a net profit of $3, 768.77 to help offset medical bills was presented to Keith and Jayne by Mr. Walt Rode, organizer of the benefit and Pastors Jimmy Sumner and Chris Ruggles.  The benefit committee would also like to thank the many people who provided cakes, food and their time to make this event a success.
     

  • Kill the messenger, bury the message

    The article by Mrs. Jones, Editor of the Chiefland Citizen, insinuates that I am opposed to a hospital being developed in the Chiefland area. That is absolutely untrue. One is needed, that we all can agree on. Mrs. Jones heard me state that publicly on two separate occasions.  My statement on a "MASH-style" emergency facility to stabilize patients, was suggested to replace the hospital, if it did not materialize.
