  • 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.

  • Project aims at healthy lifestyles

  • Supports Tarmac project

     I have been a resident of this area for the past six years and wish only the best for this community. I feel it is important to be an involved community resident and as such would like to share my belief with you.

  • A chance to help others

    There have been very few occasions in my lifetime where I can say I was astounded by the selflessness of my neighbors. We live in a society where helping others is often not a priority.

  • Wake up call

  • Scott stinks

    I would almost put Gov. Scott and Terry Jones in the same category: people who should know better but still bumble along; unraveling in just a few months all the beneficial achievements for our state and country that others before them took years to accomplish.

The motion being that AMVETS Post No. 422 endorses and supports Ameris Health Services in its efforts to construct and organize a functional healthcare facility namely, the Tri-County Hospital in Chiefland.

  • Tarmac — It's about water

    Tarmac wins, Levy loses. A few years from now, Levy commissioners and planners will be quoting Bill Clinton who, when asked about NAFTA, said, "It sounded like a pretty good deal at the time.”
    I came from Manatee County 26 years ago. I saw what happened there. Water wells freely flowed for farmers, no pumps, when I was a kid.
