  • Chiefland set to finally open...

    In addition to all of the damage and disruption wrought by Hurricane Hermine, last Friday’s high school football slate, including Chiefland’s season opener, was also dampened, as county games were cancelled.

    Aaron Richardson’s Indians are now in the unusual position of playing their opener in the third week of the season – following a bye in the first week due to a cancellation over the summer – as they take the field at C. Doyle McCall Field at Wayne Pridgeon Stadium this Friday against Arlington Country Day of Jacksonville.

  • Chiefland caps successful...

    On the final night of an eight-day, five-match span to start the season, the Chiefland volleyball squad enjoyed its best total team effort to notch its first winning sweep on the season.

  • Stuff it

    Takiya London doesn’t have the luxury of indulging in senioritis for her final year at Chiefland.

    The 6-foot-2 multi-sport star is too busy making college visits, playing weekend fall ball, and trying to help lead her volleyball squad back to the final four.

    Volleyball was more of a stopgap for London in the past – a way to keep in shape and hang out with her friends – but that’s starting to change.

  • Friday football games cancelled

    Chiefland Middle High School's non-district football game at P.K. Yonge in Gainesville on Friday has been cancelled due to Hermine, and will not be played at a later date. P.K. Yonge is a University school, and so the game can't be made up Saturday, when the Florida Gators play, and Monday is Labor Day.

    Bronson's home game against Sneads, which is located in the Panhandle, where Hermine is expected to pass through, is also cancelled.

  • Turnover troubles lead to...

    Four turnovers proved costly for the Bronson football team in its preseason game at Interlachen, leaving the Eagles to a 17-8 loss.

    Head coach Curtis Stacy saw some positives in defeat, however, with standout play on both sides of the ball from senior D.J. Harris and junior Christian Kahn.

  • Indians comeback effort comes up...

    It felt like more was at stake than a preseason tuneup in Chiefland’s kickoff classic against Jefferson County last Friday at Wayne Pridgeon Stadium, as it unfurled into a fiercely-fought, back-and-forth battle that came down to the final minute.

    The Indians fell behind by nine points twice in the second half to the Monticello squad while their pair of top backs remained sidelined with injuries since the first quarter. But CMHS churned up 194 yards in the fourth quarter to give themselves a shot at a last-minute comeback win.

  • UF/IFAS lists top ten muscadines...

    By Brad Buck


    You may eventually tempt your palette with more muscadine grape varieties, and they’ll be good for you, with new findings from University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences researchers.

    Muscadine grapes are known for their health benefits and other nutritive values – even for potential preventive measures against cancer and cardiovascular diseases. The fruits are rich in antioxidants such as a ellagic acid and resveratrol.

  • Dickey looks forward to leading...

    Vance Dickey had only recently arrived in Cedar Key to teach Phys Ed and head the boys hoops team, but he was already knee-deep in the program’s history as he cleaned out his new office.

    “Man, there are years and years – I shouldn’t say years, because that’s misleading – there are decades worth of stuff here,” Dickey says by phone while taking a break from the cleaning. “I’m picking up uniforms I’m thinking are from the 1960s or 70s, and they’re falling apart.”

  • Scorpions holding youth baseball...
