• Biological Station a part of community

    By Jack Payne


    The Nature Coast is a paradise for scientists because it poses so many fascinating riddles: What happened to the birds on Seahorse Key? Can we raise Sunray Venus clams? How does swimming with humans affect manatees? Could the Gulf oil spill affect the fishing for spotted seatrout?

  • Good deed in the Refuge

    The graffiti that detracted from the beautiful refuge vistas on the Dixie Mainline bridge over Sanders creek in the Lower Suwannee Refuge, was recently whitewashed over by an anonymous good citizen.

    The Friends of the Refuge group and Refuge staff extend a heartfelt thank you to those good folks. We can all pitch in to help the refuges manage, protect, and preserve these natural communities for all wildlife while providing for quality outdoor recreational experiences for all of us.

  • To the Levy County 4-H Family

    I am retiring as County Extension Director and 4-H Agent after 38-plus years of service to the University of Florida and a total of 42 years with USDA. My official retirement date is Jan. 31.

    I have been planning retirement for well over a year but more definitely in the last 2 months. I officially announced it to the University and to the County on Jan. 15.

  • Thank you for your support

    Dear friends and neighbors,

    I want to extend a sincere thank you from myself and my family to all of you for your prayers, flowers, cards and expressions of concern during my recent hospital stay. By the grace of God, I am at home and becoming stronger each day. Your good wishes remind me daily of the power of prayer and the value of loving and supportive family and friends.

  • Letter to the Editor

    We would like to send out a "BIG THANK YOU" to everyone who came out and supported the cheerleaders. The fish fry was a huge success. It wouldn't  be possible without all the support from this community.

    We raised enough for their cheer camp and almost enough for their uniforms.(We are still working on that.)

    We served approximately 400 fish dinners; these girls worked really hard.

    Thank you.

    Capt. Carl & Eve Robinson

  • Chiefland hopsital hopes

    For years we've heard about a hospital coming. Money raised. Hopes raised, but over the years (7), nothing!
    Now, another raised hope. Ameris has $3.7 million invested.
    Big Deal! Less than a small winning lottery ticket.
    The City of Chiefland should not contribute one penny toward what will be another unfulfilled promise.
    Thank God for the VA in Gainesville.

  • Chiefland hospital revived?

    According to June 4th edition of the Chiefland Citizen the Tri-County Hospital may be revived by Ameris Health systems.  Commissioner Ryan Bell of Chiefland (R-District 4), who is up for re-election this year, seems to have a golden ear on these developments by Mr. Schupp and  the unnamed forum of community leaders. Mr. Bell is to be commended for this.
    Commissioner Bell should also be commended for not having a Golden Eye for researching Ameris Systems record of financial responsibility and management skills.
