  • 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.

  • Letter: Littering and the natural beauty

    My wife & I arrived here last Thursday and are also one of the many tourists who realize the natural beauty you have in this area.

    I am sure your paper has addressed the problem before of the littering that is done by some inconsiderate individuals, but was wondering if any of your editors had ever written an open letter directed to the individuals that litter and asked them to respond with their reasons for ignoring the many requests,and also for their excuses for littering?

    I walk my daily mile walk in the mornings and usually fill a large bag every 24 hours.

  • Chiefland: Home to safe money

    While most of us are flabbergasted at what is happening with the big Wall Street firms taking risks, enriching themselves and gorging at the government trough, we should remember this isn't the first time folks felt like the money changers deserved a good flogging.

    TheStreet.com rates 98 percent of Florida's banks as not so healthy.

    An Oct. 14 article on TheStreet said of 293 banks and thrifts still existing in the state, only seven had recommended ratings. It's important to note that TheStreet.com is respected for its conservative bank rankings.

  • Letter: Chiefland needs animal protection laws

    Some time ago while mowing a vacant lot on the south east side of Chiefland I observed a brown medium sized dog chained up under some trees next door.

    After looking closer I realized this animal had no shelter from the weather.

    I contacted the Humane Society of Levy County who informed me they had no responsibility for the City of Chiefland. I then contacted the appropriate people in Chiefland who informed me there was no requirement for the shelter of animals.
