LAKE BUENA VISTA - 2007 turned out to be a pretty good year for the Chiefland Citizen's editorial staff.

The Citizen garnered six awards from the Florida Press Association. Winners were crowned at the FPA's Better Weekly Newspaper Awards dinner last Friday night, June 6, at the Hilton in the Walt Disney World Resort.

The Citizen earned two second-place awards, one for Best Sports Page or Section and the other for Best Editorial. The former was for content and layout with Staff Writer Claude Lewis and Editor Carolyn Risner combining for the award. The latter was written by Mike Bowdoin, on the need for the anticipated hospital. Bowdoin, a seven-year staff writer for the newspaper, sought other employment in the spring of 2007.

Lewis also had two third-place awards for Environmental or Conservation writing for his article on the alligator snapping turtle and a Humorous Column about his missing snake in the dashboard of his truck

Photographer Dave Colon won an Honorable Mention in the Feature Photo Division for a horserider taken at last year's Suwannee River Fair.
