  • Thank you to sponsors

     We would like to take this opportunity to thank and recognize the sponsors, volunteers, teams and the community for their contributions and participation during the CHS 3 vs 3 Basketball Tournament and 3 Point Shoot Out. 
    The much needed funds that were raised will go toward the continuing process of giving both the CHS boys and girls basketball programs, the tools needed to have productive and successful programs.

  • Kudos to Chiefland commissioners

    Dear Honorable Commissioners:
    The College of Central Florida Levy Center adult education program held a GED graduation ceremony at the Tommy Usher Center July 14. It was the best graduation we ever had because of your generosity in allowing us to use the facility free of charge.

  • Leadline safety with large animals

    It is so sad to hear of the child that was severely injured from leading her horse that spooked during a thunderstorm.  I pray she will recover.
    But a reminder of how to safely lead animals is appropriate: Never coil leadlines with the hand inside the coils.  Instead, use both hands to hold the line straight. Another method is to fold the line like a three-fold letter and place the hand totally over the line.
    Accidents can still happen but will be much less dangerous, usually.

  • Social Security already paid up

    From Webster's dictionary:
    Fund – a sum of money set aside for some particular purpose.
    Pension – a payment, not wages, made regularly to a person (or his family) who have fulfilled certain conditions of service, reached a certain age.
    Social Security – In the U.S., a federal system of old age, unemployment, or disability insurance for various categories of employment and dependent persons, financed by a fund maintained jointly by employees, employers, and the government.

  • We need a return to God’s grace

    Realizing Independence Day is over, there is a lot Americans should remember.
    Our country used to be the envy of every other country in the world.
    We were world leader in technology, greatest in military might, nearly everyone owned homes, cars, boats, and we had so many crops we gave them to poor countries. Industry was booming, we were No. 1 in education, the first to put a man on the moon.
    Let's see how things have changed. Our high school students cannot stand up to middle school kids in Japan or China.

  • Hello all you river lovers!

    Don’t let these low water levels discourage you, especially on the upper river.  It’s a perfect time for collecting trash that is normally inaccessible.  You can work on foot relatively close to your put-in and take-out points if it’s too low for paddling.  You’ll still get a lot and it’s worthwhile doing. 

  • Dixie Historical Society needs help

  • Happy about Army museum

    For more than 236 years, we Americans have owed our freedoms to the men and women of the United States Army. Now, at long last, the American soldier will be honored with the national Museum of the U.S. Army near our nations capitol.
