  • Politics trumps sensible water policy

    I am so upset with the shenanigans that went on at Tuesday’s (Feb. 14) Suwannee River Water Management District Governing Board meeting, that I have to speak out. They are playing political games with our drinking water. People need to know.
    I have been going to SRWMD Governing Board meetings regularly for over 10 years now. The current Governing Board of the Suwannee River Water Management District just doesn’t get it.

  • Appropriate representation for taxes paid

    Levy County District One Taxpayers are still without representation on the County Commission Board. We continue to pay taxes, but are not represented. 

  • Giving thanks

    With this being Thanksgiving week, I always take the time and reflect back and think of all the things that I am truly thankful for. 

  • Take care of those pets

  • Thank you

    The Chiefland FFA Alumni would like to give a big "Thank You" to everyone for their support in our most recent fund raiser, our BBQ dinner, making it a huge success. 

    Thanks,

    Carolyn Hart

    Chiefland

     

     

  • Disappointed

    Levy County, 

  • Land seekers, get creative

    As organizer of the Center for Rural Affairs Land Link program, which matches beginning farmers with landowners, I talk to beginning farmers every day.  
    Their situations are diverse but they all share a common dream of operating a farm or ranch.
    Our Land Link participant list contains over 250 beginners and fewer than 20 landowners.  
    Recognizing this "bottle-neck" in the match making process, I encourage beginners to get creative in their search for land.

  • Are you ready for Sharia law?

    Were you aware that in Muslim and Communist countries Christians don't walk the streets in the daytime? At night they sneak out to a house where other Christians gather to pray and worship God.
    If they are found out, the young girls and women are raped by gangs of Muslims and then are put on trial as prostitutes, thrown in jail until they renounce Jesus or die. The press will not tell you this.

  • ‘Our public schools are failures!’

    At least that is what our governmental administrators and legislatures are saying, and no doubt that is the belief of the general populace.
    The U.S. ranks 33rd in National Test Scores out of the 172 countries in the world. However, when you compare the test scores to other countries that believe all students should receive a free public education. (Oh, none of the other countries that score higher than us educate the entire populace). The exceptions are countries i.e. Norway, Sweden, Denmark, which have a population about the same as Montana with no diversity.

  • Coaches appreciated

    I had the opportunity to grow up in Chiefland and play several sports.  I now live in South Florida and I never thought I would envy or have a desire to return home. 
    Now every week I read the Citizen and I am so proud of what our coaches are doing with their athletics.  I had the privilege of playing beside some of your coaches and against them.  I also taught school and was on the same coaching staff with a few.
