  • On guns in America

    Adam Weinstein: NRA and its “Docs vs. Glocks” law treat gun owners like children

     I’ve been trying to catch up with Marion Hammer, the former president of the NRA and top lobbyist for the pro-gun group here in Florida, for years.

  • In our opinion: The public understands opinion driven by self-interest

    True journalists — those who go into the profession with no agendas or selfish motives — hold one thing dear to their hearts–the sanctity of news.

    That means 1) reporting accurately on events that transpired; and 2) presenting both sides of an issue in an effort to better inform the readership.

    The most important aspect of these two points is keeping personal feelings and opinions out of the news. Opinions only belong in one place – the editorial page, under a header that reads, “Opinion.”

  • Commissioner Chad Johnson's statement on press reports

  • Letters for the week of August 28

    Thank you

    Words can never begin to express our thank you to the many people who lifted us up and supported us during the tragic accident and loss of our beloved little one, Joel Randle Chirieleison. Please know your kind words, thoughts, expressions of sympathy through cards, calls, flowers, food, etc. — but most importantly your prayers — helped us and are helping us get through this day by day. Thank you so much for everything.

  • An Epic thank you

    Once again an EPIC thank you to our community for your support in making the First United Methodist Church of Chiefland’s 4th Annual Epic End of Summer Bash a very successful event on Aug. 9, 2014. The response to our request to help kids get ready for school was overwhelming!

    Please be sure to remember to thank all the sponsors/contributors below as we do and support them the way they have supported our community by shopping/dining with them or using their services when possible.

    An EPIC and successful school year to all!

    Don't skip the memories

  • Let's argue politics!

     There I go again—spouting out my opinions about politics, and succeeding only in offending someone, or pushing away another friend. Maybe the old folk wisdom is right: “Don’t discuss religion or politics!” It’s so hard to find someone who agrees with me 100%! Do I have to just shut up and wallow in my frustration alone? Will I ever find somebody that will agree with me on everything?
