  • A reason, a season, a lifetime

     The year was 2008. Tom had just moved to Florida, we were living in a duplex in Chiefland and the time was right to start looking for a house.

    We both worked in Chiefland but Harriett Downs’ ad on the back of the Williston Pioneer spoke to us one week when the right house at the right price said, “Call.”

  • A reason, a season,

    The year was 2008. Tom had just moved to Florida, we were living in a duplex in Chiefland and the time was right to start looking for a house.

    We both worked in Chiefland but Harriett Downs’ ad on the back of the Williston Pioneer spoke to us one week when the right house at the right price said, “Call.”

    We did and agreed to meet the agent that Saturday.

  • Fight to the finish

    It could have been a blood bath, the crowd knew, watching Chiefland’s P.J. Thomas and Old Town’s Teddy Skaggs glare at each other from across the eight-sided ring. 

    The five bouts before, full of head and gut-splitting elbows, hooks, uppercuts, wild haymakers, knee strikes, slams and chokeholds, made that abundantly clear.

  • Commissioner says he was attacked

     

    Levy County Commissioner Ryan Bell wasn't on the roster for Saturday's mixed martial arts bouts at Chiefland Billiards and Bar, but that didn't keep him from taking a slam to the back of the head, according to a statement he gave Chiefland Police later that evening.

  • Middle school receives NFL grant

    Special to the Pioneer

    When Coach Trent Viau received an e-mail from a colleague advising him about a grant opportunity from the NFL worth $10,000, he considered deleting the e-mail, thinking there was little chance that a small rural middle school in Levy County could ever be fortunate enough to win such a large amount of money. 

    But the more he read about the grant, the more convinced he became that Williston Middle School would be a perfect pick for such a grant.

  • Defense shuts down Lady Indians
