  • Quote of the week for September 22

    "If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be 'meetings.' "

  • Will an angry god destroy America?

    The world sees the United States as having a weak government. They ridicule us for our debt. We are an absolute nothing in their eyes.
    The following may seem disengaged from that conclusion, but try it on for size.
    The energy department did an audit of Solyndra and stated the company would run out of money by this September. Washington was well aware of this, yet put $535 million into the company for political gain—not for economic income.
    And our law says no more taxpayer money would go to Planned Parenthood, but Obama just gave them millions.

  • The proposed power plant

    What we need in Florida is solar panel factories. If we had several solar factories, there would be competition, and everyone could afford solar power. And we would not need the atomic power plants in this state that Florida Power is trying to push on the people. Also, they are very dangerous. One blew up in France just recently.
    With all the sun that we have here in Florida solar power is the way to go. Everyone should call the Governor's Office. The phone number is 1-850-488-4441 and tell him to get some factories going and get these people back to work.

  • Private investment in communications infrastructure vital

    Half way through 2011 America and Florida continue to struggle to find solutions that will stimulate our respective economies and get us back to work.  For Floridians, frustration results directly from the state’s high unemployment rate (10.6 percent) and low economic growth. Hopefully this will refocus policymakers’ efforts on job creation and economic growth.
    So how do we get things moving again? One way to help jumpstart the economy is through the expansion of broadband access.

  • OUR VIEW: Good things

    “This is a good thing,” is a trademark phrase for homekeeping doyenne Martha Stewart.
    And whether or not you like her, the statement is as good an assessment for what is happening in Chiefland this year, especially of late.
    Construction has finished on a new Ralph's Burgers, next to the (once shut down) Sunoco station on North Young Boulevard.
    Murphy USA has opened an always busy gas station right in the busiest place in town — home to Winn Dixie and Walmart.
