  • DHSMV does protect Floridians’ personal information

    I would like to respond to media reports that the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is selling your personal information.

  • Commissioner disputes quotes

    I read your article regarding my motion to appoint someone from my district to the Planning Commission and your editorial titled “Our View” regarding non-agenda items and I would like to set the record straight.

  • LARC sale a success

    The staff, clients and Board of the Levy Association for Retarded Citizens want to thank everyone who stopped by the Thrift Store “Clean Sweep Sale” on Saturday.  Many shoppers went out the door with smiles on their faces and bags of bargain buys in their hands!  We also want to thank Mrs. Thelma McCain and her family for providing the fish fry which was a great success. The promotion of our event by the Chiefland Citizen brought many of our friends and neighbors to our door which we appreciate very much.

  • A little help?

    To whom it may concern,
    My name is Beth Warren and I’m a recent graduate from Chiefland High School, but instead of going to college in the fall I will be taking a “gap year.” I was accepted into a non-profit organization at the beginning of  the summer called Global Citizen Year. Only 50 to 60 students are selected from all over the country.

  • Time for some clarification

    TAXPAYERS!  It is time for a little clarification to the public and public officials.
    Over the past few years, we have had a tremendous budget shortfall that resulted in the previous commissioners being forced to adopt a deficit budget. 
    According to Wikipedia, a budget (from old French bougette, purse) is a list of all planned expenses and revenues. It is a plan for saving and spending.  This deficit budget means that we had to plan to spend about $2 million more than we take in.
