  • Who can we blame?

    It is reported that our country, the United States of America, is deep in debt.  It seems our elected governmental officials including the President have had to borrow money to pay for the things our leaders believe are necessary.  I mean, actually borrow money above all the taxes that are collected from those of us who pay them.  

  • Democratic County Caucus

     

    Dear Editor:

  • Desalination's time is now

    Maybe the various Water Management Districts and Environmental Protection agencies should stop squabbling with each other over which county has the highest priority for the need to find a solution to our state's approaching water crisis.
    As long as there's water in the rivers and lakes, and peoples’ wells are still pumping water, no one will pay attention to the dire reports of those various water district officials until it's too late.
    You know that old expression: “You never miss the water until the well runs dry.”

  • Spring is best spent in state parks

    "Spring begins." My calendar has informed me of the official beginning of this refreshing season, although I've felt it outside for a few weeks now. As a Floridian, I know spring will be short but it will also be time to break out of your everyday routine, release some stress, get out of the office and experience nature in Florida's state parks.

  • Thankful for support

    The Board of Directors, staff, and clients of the Levy Association for Retarded Citizens wish to thank the community and Chiefland Citizen for their support of the LARC Thrift Store Clean Sweep Sale.
    LARC is so blessed to be located in an area where the people care and support the events we sponsor.  Thank you each and every one.
    Betty S. Walker
    Executive Director

     

  • Organic lemon has bee die-off

    We have a seven-year-old Meyer lemon tree that has been grown organically for the last five years and experienced the same die-off of its pollinators as Barbara Robbie Blake wrote about in her “Take care when buying plants” letter in your March 22nd edition.

  • Deserved honors

    Growing up in Levy County has provided me with many friendships and memories that have lasted through the years.
    It was a great pleasure to see my good friends, H.C. Henderson and his late wife Faye, given much deserved recognition with Citizens of the Year and H.C. being named Alumni of the Year for the Levy County Schools Foundation.

  • Thank you

    I wish to thank all the contributors and participants, volunteers and staff for making the 2012 Florida State NASP Tournament a very special event.  First of all, the kids, of course, the best bunch of kids you could possibly gather in one place, they were terrific, as were their coaches.  Thanks to Safari Club International of North Florida, Tom Powell and Ray Pringle, Bear Archery Products of Gainesville, Neil Byce and Eric Godkin, Morrell Targets, Bernie and Dale Morrell and Woods ‘n Water Magazine for their contributions to the live event. 

  • Last line of defense

    Each morning cases come across my desk for review and I see the ways that folks are victimized by others seeking money through a variety of sources.
    The gamut ranges from charitable contributions to classified ads and the result is that frequently folks are getting diminished or zero return on their money. This, in a time when money is universally tight. If we are to avoid these scams, we need to get smarter about our responses.    

  • Whoa! Whoa! Hold on lawmakers in Tally
