  • 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. 

  • Memorial Concert for Alonso...

    C. Doyle McCoy Field is set to host the 2012 concert for the Alonso Guyton Memorial Scholarship. The show begins at noon Saturday. Admission is a donation for the fund. 

    All proceeds go to help support the schoalrship set up to honor Guyton. 

    Featured performers include Zach Tyson, TJ Brown and Sarah Gore. “Special Guests” include Ambitt Rafley, Phillip Henderson and Sabrina Phillips.

  • The Most Wonderful Time of the...

    I have fiercely defended October as the best month in sports for a long time. The World Series. Pivotal mid-season football games in high school and college. The NFL gets into full swing. Huge chase races in NASCAR. The NBA and NHL seasons begin.

    But this April is beginning to change my mind.

    When the crowd gathered at the Cedar Key Library recently, they didn’t expect the great surprise. The Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge was hosting a talk on the latest research on Swallow-tailed Kites.  As birders were arriving for Dr Ken Meyer’s presentation, Dr Dawn Miller, Gainesville veterinarian and certified wildlife rehabilitator, came in the door carrying a magnificent swallowtail.

  • Tips for turkey

           Whether you oversee a large tract of land or own a smaller parcel, there are many wildlife management techniques you can use to help attract wild turkeys to your property.

  • Clint's for Certain

    The Sprint Cup season is only five races old, but Clint Bowyer has gone a long way toward eliminating the uncertainty that clouded his career during the off-season.

    Bowyer, 32, made his name at Richard Childress Racing, where he won five races since joining the Cup ranks full-time in 2006. Twice he won at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, in 2007 and 2010, and at Talladega Superspeedway, in 2010 and 2011. He also won at Richmond, in 2008.

  • They’re back; Sturgeon returning...

    They’re back. Gulf sturgeon have begun their annual migration back into the Suwannee River.
    Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) officers have reported seeing the fish jump already this year.
    People have been injured in accidental collisions with the jumping sturgeon. In 2011, six boaters were hurt and 11 encounters with sturgeon were reported.

  • More than just a game

    Sometimes a game of baseball, and five days of care, can overcome language barriers, poverty and even hatred. 

     

  • Fade to Brown

    Bronson Blue Springs has lost its sparkle.

    Severe drought, according to Suwannee River Water Management District Engineer Meagan Wetherington, has caused the spring to quit flowing. And recent rains, though not enough to recharge the aquifer, have caused water from nearby swamps, heavy with tannins, to flow into the spring, staining it muddy brown.
