    It's OK to use paper
    It's OK to print! I often receive emails that caution me to "Consider the environment before printing this email" or "Save trees: Print only when necessary."

  • Vanishing churches

    In the wooded farmlands west of Williston stands, neglected and forgotten, an abandoned country church. Like a monument to the county’s rich historical past, this church is a silent sentinel and reminder of when our churches were the heart of community life.
    In days gone by, the tiny church houses were the center of life and death, where revivals, baptisms, weddings, Sunday school classes and funerals were held. But all country churches had a common thread, a warm homey feeling about them.

  • Do I have to pay thousands for a medivac helicopter ride?

  • Well runs dry, as does savings

    Chiefland City Commissioner Rollin Hudson says the hottest day in Chiefland is always city election day.
    I prefer to think there are three equally hot days: Chiefland High School graduation day, city election day and Watermelon Festival day.
    It was no exception this year as I worked at the Citizen booth and stood in the heat for an hour as the annual festival parade rolled by. I was delirious for a shower.
    As I left Chiefland at about 1 p.m. I called home. "No shower," the Carnivore said. "Something's wrong with the well."

    Tell it to the District
    Dear Citizen Readers:
    Has your home well gone dry yet?  Did you know that if it does that your home owners insurance won’t cover your well replacement?  
    Digging a deeper well is an expensive proposition.  Depending on how deep you need to go, it can cost several hundred dollars to get to water. Then you have to replace your pump. When the pump tries to pump air, it burns up and you will need a new one to the tune of $1,000 to $1,500—maybe more. It all depends on when you hit water.
