  • Scramble renamed to honor golf...

    Tom Bailey, who died in an accident on U.S. Highway 19 on Tuesday will be memorialized in the annual Superbowl Scramble that he organized at the Chiefland Golf & Country Club.
    Bailey, the course’s general manager, put together for at least 10 years what was dubbed the “Sup Scramble.” Golfers would gather to play a round and enjoy lunch afterwards.
    “Starting this year it will be called the Annual Tom Bailey Superbowl Scramble,” said club member Michael Michaelis.

  • Annual star party coming to...

    The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Cedar Key Scrub State Reserve and Cedar Key Museum State Park will host the National Stars-n-Parks Programs on Monday, Feb. 20, Wednesday, Feb. 22 and Friday, Feb. 24.

  • Tempers flare at basketball game

    With a line of fans standing outside the gym door and a fierce rivalry between two area teams, it was no surprise that emotions boiled over in a recent Chiefland basketball game. It was more surprising how easily it was contained.
    A brawl broke out in the third quarter of Chiefland High School boys varsity team’s home game against Dixie County on Jan. 12. No one was injured in the ruckus although CHS player Deshawn Rolland was punched in the head by an unidentified female from the bleachers, said Chiefland JV coach Cody Montgomery.

  • Chiefland takes Bronson Tip-Off...

    The speed of the Chiefland High School Indians’ boys basketball team proved to be too much this weekend at the Bronson Tip-Off Tournament. The Indians’ blazing speed propelled them through the tournament’s championship with a 34-point per game margin of victory.

  • CWGA has strong showing in ‘...

    The CWGA sent five members of our group to play in the third outing of the “Gator” competition, held at the University of Florida Course in Gainesville on Nov. 8.

  • Road turnaround?

    The proof is in the improvement.

    Chiefland may look back on Friday’s 26-22 loss at Baldwin as when its football program finally began its turnaround.

  • Young Eagles soar to title

    In a game where 88 combined points were scored, the story usually would revolve around offense. However, defense is what wins championships as Bronson's 9-10 year old football team showed en route to Saturday's 48-38 win against Hawthorne in the league title game.

    The Eagles finish the season with a 7-1 record and avenged their only loss in the process after falling 14-12 against Hawthorne during the regular season. The Hornets' lone loss before Saturday was a 6-0 defeat at the hands of Newberry.

  • Bronson suffers another big loss

    Timmy King’s blank stare was as cold as the ice bag numbing his right knee. Bronson’s senior lineman was injured during the first quarter of Friday’s 51-20 loss at Bell. It dropped the Eagles to 0-9 on the season.

    King sat mostly motionless during the second half, perhaps realizing his high school football career was over from what appeared to be a severe injury. He’d glance at the field only to watch plays, but his eyes would quickly return to the ground.

  • Cappy's (FINAL) Corner:...

    My days are numbered at the Chiefland Citizen. Monday will be my last at the paper as I’ve accepted a job to become the editor of Gator Country Magazine and GatorCountry.com. It’s what is best for my family and career as I try to grow in the Florida media world after moving here from Arkansas a year ago.

    Chiefland, and Levy County, will always be special to me. It’s a special place with special people with a few, at times, that were a special kind of crazy.
