  • Stayin’ on track

     LeRoy Davidson was on his way to Kentucky more than a month ago when Bronson Speedway caught his eye.

    He’d gotten out of the racing business years ago, he said, working the last few years as a licensed contractor and having some involvement with a fishing supply business.

    But he wasn’t happy. When he shared that fact with his wife one day, “She said, ‘Why don’t you get back into racing?’”

    Cliff Lohrey’s career as head football coach of the Williston High School Red Devils came to an abrupt halt around 4 p.m. Sunday when Principal Eulin Gibbs fired the seven-month coach and athletic director.

    Gibbs confirmed Monday that it was indeed a termination for those two positions, but he offered Lohrey a certified position at the school, but the former coach declined and then resigned his position as a teacher.

  • The heartbreak of Hamilton County

    The Chiefland Indians made their first road trip of the year Friday night, making the two-hour trek north to Hamilton County in which the Indians fell to the Trojans 33-7.

    This didn’t look like the same Indians team that played at home the last three weeks, as they faced a very athletic and prepared football team that reached the playoffs last season out of District 5.

    The Trojans, with 20 returning seniors, stymied what had been a potent Indians ground attack, as Chiefland finished with a season low 134 yards rushing.

    It was a very nostalgic evening Friday night at Bronson Middle High School. The Bronson Eagles were set to play the Branford Buccaneers in their fourth game of the 2014 season.

    However, there was a new addition in the far left corner of the field that could not go unnoticed.

    A new scoreboard proudly proclaimed: The John Rutledge Field, Home of the Eagles.

    Recreational anglers who normally fish in the Gulf lost up to $585 million from lost fishing opportunities in the year of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and could be entitled to compensation, according to a new University of Florida study.

    After a disaster such as an oil spill, trustees – which could include federal, state or tribal authorities – often attempt to secure financial compensation from those responsible.

  • Indians outlast Saints

    In the second half Friday night, the Chiefland Indians’ offense and defense faced something they hadn’t seen all year to this point in the season.

    What the Indians faced on their way to a 21-12 victory over Cedar Creek Christian wasn’t in the form of a particular player or scheme; what they faced comes with a better name, adversity.

    The Saints had just taken the opening kickoff of the second half 80 yards for a touchdown and the Indians led 7-6 after they blocked the Saints’ extra point attempt.

  • Lady Indian on Junior Nationals...

    Every team covets that first win of the season, even more so when you play your county rival in a game that hasn’t been played in 10 years.

    “ Our kids took a lot of pride, they wanted to send a message that they’re a team to be reckoned with especially in the county,” said third-year coach Aaron Richardson. Needless to say, the win was earned and the message delivered as Chiefland took care of Bronson Friday night winning 42-14.
