Today's Opinions

  • My barbershop quandary

    When someone looks at me, they might be tempted to assume that my relationship with my barber is a cordial one. This, however, would be a great error in assumption. I have not always harbored such ambivalent feelings towards my barber, but things have changed.

  • Eternity in our hearts

    I am certain that the most thankful people ought to be those who consider themselves outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen. We are the folks who get to enjoy riches that go far beyond our ability to pay for. We get to play in the backyard of God. And even though most property is claimed by an individual or entity; it is really all owned by its Creator. His handiwork is seen in every mountain and valley. He fills each hollow with animals, plants, and trees, not by chance, but according to His divine purpose.

    Responding on health care

    I can not resist responding to the “Reform health care now” letter of the Nov. 26.  The dear lady is absolutely on track.  Our European brothers and especially the French should set the stage for our reform!  I wonder while we are at it why not revamp our entire Government and pattern it upon a European model.

    Health care reform certainly has a ring to it.  

  • Good News: Loving living in Levy County

    I know there’s a perception that media folks are always critical of everything. But I hope it’s not so.

    And I have had folks in Levy express disdain for folks who move here for its wonderful atmosphere, or any of a variety of reasons, then promptly turn around and want to change it into wherever they came from. It’s a valid complaint.

    But I realized recently how wholeheartedly I have come to embrace Levy County when I cringed at the responses of two job applicants to the question: What do you know about Levy County?

  • Buy local now before it's too late

    The Christmas season is upon us.

    The Christmas lights are up in Chiefland.

    A radio station is playing Christmas music.

    A local store is having a “Christmas Sale 40% to 50% off”

    I don't care if if it's a discounted  holiday or merchandise.

    I'm a sucker for stuff at a nice discount.

    My wish list is the same as last year's. I want that  “Five-Pound Box of Money” singer Pearl Bailey rhapsodizes. She tells Santa it would be useful and is loaded with lots of sentiment.  

  • 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.
