  • FWC sets Red Snapper Season

    The 2012 recreational red snapper season in Gulf of Mexico state waters will be June 1 through July 10, a total of 40 days.

    The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) set the 2012 season Wednesday, May 2, at the Commission meeting in Crystal River.

  • Trickling River Doesn't...

    John Edwards, clad in Spandex shorts and a torn T-shirt adorned with an airbrushed hog in a canoe, smiled as paddled down the tea colored waters of the Waccasassa River, effortlessly hefting his thin frame over the fallen log at the end of the race he’s competed in for 34 years.

    “It’s a fun race to do,” the St. Petersburg resident said after coming in first Saturday in the Experienced Class division of the 35th Annual Wild Hog Canoe & Kayak Race in Otter Creek.

  • Chiefland Baseball Falls in...

    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. 

  • Chiefland softball loses in...

    Chiefland softball player Taylore Fuller is one of the select few athletes that will get to compete at the varsity level in college. A year from now she will be wearing Orange and Blue, playing for the University of Florida.

  • 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.

  • Bronson's super senior send...

    Cake tastes better after a win.
    To celebrate Bronson/Middle High School's senior night, baseball team supporters baked an orange and blue cake for after the game. Trailing 8-2 in the fifth inning, head coach Allen Strickland wasn't excited about eating his cake with a loss.
    He didn't have to.

  • Alonzo Guyton Memorial Concert...

    Alonzo Guyton was known for many things. His state championship track performance. His musical talent. His stint in the Marines. For many, he was best known for his enormous smile. Family and friends knew a concert in his honor would have brought out the smile.
    On April 21, Wayne Pridgeot Stadium at  Chiefland High School hosted the first annual Alonzo Guyton Memorial concert. The concert raised over $1,600 for a scholarship in his name.
    All that would have made Alonzo very happy.

  • Indians tame Dixie in 6-2 win

    After their wildest game of the season, the Chiefland high school baseball team returned home for one of their least dramatic. Both games had the same result.

    The Indians handled Dixie County easily on April 10, winning 8-1. Following a nine-run comeback at Union County in another district contest, this game was never in doubt. 

    The victory extended the team’s season-high winning streak to four. It was another impressive display of a team playing its best baseball of the season.

  • Chiefland Women Golfers Host...

    Special to the Citizen

    The Chiefland Women's Golf Association hosted their annual Invitational Tournament on April 4.

    We had forty women coming from all over Central Florida.  

    The weather was perfect and the Chiefland golf course was in fantastic condition.

    The Overall "Low Gross" winner was Cathy Steen from Lake City. 

  • Before an Orange and Blue Debut

    It’s rare to find an opposing team’s colors on display before a game. Chiefland softball players joked it was to welcome visiting Bronson before the team’s senior night game on April 12. Despite the coincidence, it was worth the confusion.   

    Orange and blue balloons were tied to the fence along left field during the game. They celebrated two of the players in program history most worthy of celebrating.
