  • Bears take down Indians

    Friday night the No. 1 ranked Dixie County Bears came to Chiefland to face off with the Indians. The Bears left town with a 40-6 win, looking like the number one team in 1A.

    The Indians faced a tall task going up against a balanced offensive attack and the Bears’ stingy defense. Running back Julian Robinson led the way for the Bears in the first half, scoring two touchdowns, as the Bears went into the half leading 22-0.

    Manatee Springs is being highlighted in a new feature on a state website.

    "For a variety of reasons, it's an important spring," said SRWMD Director of Water Resources Erich Marzolf, adding that the district has included the feature based on what some of the state's other water management districts are now doing.
