  • Losses don't dampen CHS...




    Consecutive losses to end the season disappointed, but how 2011 played out impressed Chiefland softball coach Ginger Fuller.

    The Lady Indians (19-7 overall) took P.K. Yonge 10 innings before losing 4-3 in the District 5, Class 2A tournament final. They then suffered a 3-0 loss at Jacksonville Providence in the first round of regionals.

  • CHS baseball knocks out of...

     Bang ... Bang ... Bang.

    Three first-inning home runs paved the way for Jacksonville Providence to knock Chiefland out of the Class 2A regional semifinals with a 10-2 defeat.

    The Indians never seemed to get back up off the mat after the five-run first inning. CHS coach Kyle Parnell had been warned about the Stallions’  power after his team beat Jacksonville University Christian 8-1 in their regional opener.

  • Bo knows Chiefland sports

    Two young boys watching the competition at this year's Suwannee River Fair were star struck, and it wasn't from one of the champion feeder steers.

    "That's Bo Beauchamp. That's Bo Beauchamp," said one of the boys with a blond crew cut. "Hey, look over there... That's Bo Beauchamp. Bo Beauchamp is here!"

  • Chiefland springs into football

    A total of 41 players participated in the first week of Chiefland's spring football practice. Indians coach Jim O'Neal, who is in the second year of his second stint leading the program, was excited about the progress made during the first week. 

    "It's like night and day compared to where we were last spring," O'Neal said. "Compared to last spring, hitting is so much more intense."

  • Time to apply for fall special-...

    If you haven’t been seeing the quantity or quality of game you’d like, you may want to consider applying for a special-opportunity hunt.  For the past 14 years, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has offered these unique fall-season hunts for deer, wild hog and released quail on arguably the state’s best public hunting lands.  Maybe it’s time you look into getting in on the action and experience the hunt of a lifetime.            

  • Beachgoers can help biologists...

    This spring, mating horseshoe crabs will gather at sandy beaches throughout the state. Biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s (FWC) Fish and Wildlife Research Institute need help from the public to identify horseshoe crab spawning areas.

  • Kahne takes layover with Team...

    This stage of Kasey Kahne’s career is tumultuous almost by definition. What should be the prime of the 31-year-old’s career is a bit muddled, if only for now. Kahne left Richard Petty Motorsports near the end of last season. In 2012, he will join Hendrick Motorsports, replacing Mark Martin.

    This year, though, Kahne is taking a one-year ride with Team Red Bull as a teammate of Brian Vickers.
