  • Bronson Youth League Equipment is safe
    No equipment is missing from the Bronson Youth League, according to organization representative Mike Hanna. An unidentified audience member from a Bronson Council meeting on April 16 said she saw items with the B.Y.L label at Play it Again Sports, a used sporting goods franchise. Hanna said he went to both the Gainesville and Ocala locations and didn’t find anything from the league.  An investigation by The Chiefland Citizen into the Gainesville location provided similar results. 
  • Chiefland Baseball Falls in District Semi-Finals
    The 2012 Chiefland High School baseball team faced a lot of challenges during their season. The most important turned out to be a two-run lead in the bottom of the seventh.  The Indians left the go-ahead run at the plate in the top of the seventh inning in their District 1A-7 semi-final game against Newberry. The loss ended a season that saw the Indians take a difficult beginning and turn it into an above-.500 record. 
  • Wain's World
    It may not have been the biggest senior class in Chiefland High School baseball history, but it, or he, went out with a bang in the team's final home game. Travis Wain, the only senior on the roster, earned the win by pitching four innings in Chiefland's 5-2 win against Seven Rivers Christian School on April 17. It wasn't the Indian's smoothest victory but it continued the home team's winning ways.  Chiefland has won eight of its last nine games.
  • Chiefland moves up in regionals

Two of Chiefland’s three losses this season have come to the Tigers.  “This is the one chance we get to give them a run for their money,” said Chiefland’s Josh Smith.

The greens superintendent and his crew worked hard cleaning up the course after the winds and rain that hit Central Florida on Tuesday. Our president, Freida Martin, deserves a lot of credit for her work in guiding all of us in the various duties that it takes to have a successful tournament.
