  • 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.

  • Water district profiling Manatee...

    Manatee Springs is being highlighted in a new feature on a state website.
    The Suwannee Rive Water Management District created the feature, the Manatee Springs Dashboard, several months ago as an experimental means of getting feedback from people on the spring and the issues surrounding its health.
    "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.

  • Tigers claw Indians

    Last Friday night, the Trenton Tigers came to town to face off against the Chiefland Indians and this game proved to be a tale of two halves. The Indians won the second half 8-0, but the only problem was the Tigers scored 35 unanswered points in the first half going on to win by a score of 35-8.

  • CHS softball gets championship...

    The Chiefland Lady Indians 2014 softball team was presented with their championship rings before the crowd at Friday's homecoming football game.

    Principal Matt McLelland presented the players and their coaches with the rings for winning the 2014 Florida 1A Softball Championship in Vero Beach earlier this year. At one point, McLellan's presentation of the rings was remniscent of that famous scene out of the movie "Pretty Woman" when Ricard Gere presents a jewelry box to co-star Julia Roberts.
