  • Wake up America

    What is the President afraid of? Obama is going to give a major speech to tell the people how he is proposing to solve the jobs problem. But, he is waiting to make his proposals known to us sometime in September after Congress returns to Washington, D.C.
    What he is afraid of is letting us know NOW what he is proposing because we will have time to digest his solutions. This would allow us time to let our senators and representatives  know what we think before they return to Washington, D.C.
    If his proposals are so great, what is he afraid of?

  • County Government – Its' Heart Warming No.2

    Allow me to continue from my last letter to the editor.
    Three Levy County Commissioner’s, (Ryan Bell, Danny Stevens and Chad Johnson) hired attorney Brien A. Bolves, to represent the three commissioner’s actions, on behalf of the Tarmac mining project.

  • Letter to Rick Turner

    I was saddened and a bit taken back when I read your statement from the last school board meeting: “This legislative body is telling us where their care is, and that’s into charter schools, and not public schools.”  This statement clearly showed a lack of understanding regarding charter schools as well as a lack of compassion for the parents who choose these alternatives for their children.  So please allow me to clear up a few things.

  • DHSMV does protect Floridians’ personal information

    I would like to respond to media reports that the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is selling your personal information.

  • Commissioner disputes quotes

    I read your article regarding my motion to appoint someone from my district to the Planning Commission and your editorial titled “Our View” regarding non-agenda items and I would like to set the record straight.

  • LARC sale a success

    The staff, clients and Board of the Levy Association for Retarded Citizens want to thank everyone who stopped by the Thrift Store “Clean Sweep Sale” on Saturday.  Many shoppers went out the door with smiles on their faces and bags of bargain buys in their hands!  We also want to thank Mrs. Thelma McCain and her family for providing the fish fry which was a great success. The promotion of our event by the Chiefland Citizen brought many of our friends and neighbors to our door which we appreciate very much.

  • County government – it's heart warming

    In the June 30 issue of the Chiefland Citizen, there was an editorial “Personal agendas? Or betterment of county.”  
    Let’s review the history over the last several years of actions taken by our county government.
    Along with two of our county commissioners being indicted and convicted on corruption charges, we also have a local businessman who it seems instructed an undercover, federal agent on how to grease (coaching) the palms of the local politicians.

  • A little help?

    To whom it may concern,
    My name is Beth Warren and I’m a recent graduate from Chiefland High School, but instead of going to college in the fall I will be taking a “gap year.” I was accepted into a non-profit organization at the beginning of  the summer called Global Citizen Year. Only 50 to 60 students are selected from all over the country.

  • Time for some clarification

    TAXPAYERS!  It is time for a little clarification to the public and public officials.
    Over the past few years, we have had a tremendous budget shortfall that resulted in the previous commissioners being forced to adopt a deficit budget. 
    According to Wikipedia, a budget (from old French bougette, purse) is a list of all planned expenses and revenues. It is a plan for saving and spending.  This deficit budget means that we had to plan to spend about $2 million more than we take in.
    Now for clarification, this happened for several reasons.

  • Keep those pets cool

    As temperatures repeatedly reach over ninety degrees, we need to take some extra precautions with our furry friends. When leaving an animal outdoors, take the time to make sure there is plenty of shade and water available. An open shelter that provides cover and lets wind blow through is suggested. It's nice to provide drinking water in the shelter, too, though it's not absolutely necessary.
