  • Column: Change does not mean an end to the free stuff

    You have probably noticed the changes at the Chiefland Citizen.

    First, two new guys moved in. We went from having a newsroom dominated by women to a boys’ club.

    There has been tinkering with the design  and content to make it more interesting and useful. One noticeable change is the teasers at the top of Page 1.

    Then there’s the electronic changes at the website, www.chieflandcitizen.com; the Twitter feed, News4Levy; the Facebook page, Chiefland Citizen; and the email blast for those who register at our website.

  • Letter: Thank you from CAAA

    Once again the community of Chiefland has stepped up to provide a service for our children. Through the efforts of Chiefland Area Athletic Association’ volunteers and the businesses of Chiefland, our annual Halloween Carnival was a huge success. CAAA started the Halloween Carnival 11 years ago to offer parents and the community an alternative to door-to-door Trick or Treating. Chief Douglas ensures that our carnival is a safe place by assigning city policemen to monitor the area.

  • Letter: Legion deserves thank you

    The Town of Bronson would like to thank the men and women of American Legion Post 236 of Levy County for their help in honoring our veterans by placing flags on grave sites in all the towns cemeteries, and on display outside of Old Town Hall, to honor those still serving.

    Thank you to: Post Commander Dwight Fields, Auxiliary President Judy Fields, Diana Folks, Historian Edward Gonczarow, Dan Hartley, Alexis Gaddy, Steve Gaddy, Christine H. Haney and Leo E. Sapp. Jr.

  • Letter: Not buying Nelson’s response

    I recently wrote our Senator Bill Nelson urging him to be bold and brave and stand up for the American people and reject the current government plan for the takeover of the health care industry.  I was really surprised to get an answer, but not really surprised to find out how little notice is paid to his constituents.  I guess that his minion picked the wrong letter out of his junk mail answers. Anyway, since he said not to reply to his response, I thought I would share my reply with you.

  • Take easy way to lose your driver’s license

    So you have your driver’s license.  May I first say congratulations on your efforts and achievements.  Now that you have possession of the little piece of plastic, however, do you know what to do with it?  Probably not. This is a frequent problem among beginning drivers, which is why I have taken the time to write out a few helpful tips on how to lose your license.

  • Letter: Dear RNC, Please take notice!

    I am a life long Republican. I am a retired senior citizen. I, like countless others are inundated with solicitations through the mail and phone from the RNC, specific Congressmen and Senators. They all want monetary support and would like me to fill out a survey in which the brain dead could respond. So, I thought I would send an e-mail to the New York Times and my home papers with hopes that someone from the RNC would take notice.

  • Letter: Thank You for Johnson stories

    Thank you to Steve Waters for the update each week on Chiefland High School graduate Jarret Johnson’s career with the Baltimore Ravens.

    It is nice for the people in this area to keep up with his progress. Not many athletes make it to this level and it is an inspiration to our young people that they can do this even from our small schools.

    Thank you,

    Beth Davis

     

  • Letter: Pumpkin Fest was a success

    Thanks so much to the entire community of Bronson and surrounding areas for making the First Ever Bronson Pumpkin Festival a huge success.  We had over 1,500 folks come through the gates to enjoy a great family-oriented festival.  Not too bad for our inaugural event.

     Special thanks for all Bronson Chamber Members and the staff from the Town of Bronson for working tirelessly to make this festival a success.  Also to all the volunteers, vendors and carnival rides that were a huge part of the festival.
