  • Mad about road

    Regarding the article from June 9, citing alleged "illegal road construction in Cedar Key Heights." I would like to correct the following information.
    1. The article stated that SRWMD said I claimed the road was grandfathered in because it was built in 2008. It should have read that the road was platted in 1928 and is considered pre-act, not subject to present-day permitting. The only laws it is subject to are those that were in existence in 1928.

  • Save our Wednesday nights (and our youth)

    Dear Tri-County Area Citizens,
    Through the years, our communities have maintained the long-time tradition of reserving Wednesday nights for purposes of faith. This has been particularly helpful with respect to our youth. Local churches of all denominations have taken this opportunity to instill values of virtue and service in the lives of our young people. These core values are the underpinnings of wholesome family lives and harmonious communities. The tradition has served us well.

  • Congrats Bronson youth teams

  • Is the end near?

    Has the Big Guy upstairs got your attention yet?

    Does a lightening bolt have to smack you in the head to get you started wondering if maybe this Bible stuff with its prophecies is something to worry about?

    Good thing he's a patient kind of guy. Remember Noah and Lot? They got the message just in time. 

    Will you get the message just in time?

  • Veterans denied by legislature

    On receiving news of the three Veterans being denied road memorials by the Tallahassee politicians, I am not really surprised. 

  • Tarmac has a leg to stand on

  • Impressed with letter about hospital

    I was impressed with Genevieve Hannah's Letter to the Editor on April 21, about the hospital.
    I support the new hospital in Chiefland as a real necessary project. We should continue signing petitions and mailing them to Frank Schupp and Ameris Health Systems to get us a hospital in Chiefland and our three counties.
    Send all petitions to:
    Frank Schuup
    Ameris Health Systems
    1114 17th. Avenue S.,
    Suite 205
    Nashville, TN 37212       
    Or, fax them to 615-327-0898.

  • The two-story outhouse

    If you have ever used a computer and received emails, you may have seen a photo of a two-story outhouse. It’s a normal-looking structure, except for one thing: The top section is for politicians, and directly under that is a place for the voters. Of course, there is no plumbing, just a hole above and below the voters. You can well imagine what happens inside when a politician is seated above a voter.
    Tuesday night, May 3, the voting public saw the outhouse in action.

  • AARP Tax-Aide saves money

    This was the 43rd year for the nationwide community service organization — AARP Tax Aide. In Levy County we are blessed with faithful volunteers who dedicate their time and effort during the tax season. Thanks to Loretta Poole, Jenny Anderson, Carl and Marc Burkhardt, Denei Morehouse and Vicky VanDyke.
    We are grateful to Sue Ann Burkhardt and her staff at the Luther Callaway Library for keeping up with the sign-in sheet, making room for all of us and seeming to always have yummy snacks.

  • Proud of CMS students

    Parents and teachers, no, the whole community should be very proud of the young people of Chiefland Middle School. Five young people with the assistance of Dana Davis organized a food drive that amazed and delighted the members of the St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Chiefland.
    Some weeks, it's a real struggle for us to come up with all of the food needed for the food pantry. Last week the shelves were full.
