• Golf for Meals tournament a success

    Citrus County Support Services and the Friends of the Nature Coast Volunteer Center would like to thank Crystal River Golf Club, our 116 amazing golfers, sponsors and volunteers. The proceeds from our Golf for Meals tournament will provide an additional 1,424 meals on wheels to seniors in Citrus County who would have gone on a waiting list. I am proud to represent Citrus County Support Services and our senior programs and I thank you all for helping to ensure that in Citrus County, no senior goes hungry.

  • Your support made us a success

    The 2015 Berries, Brew & BBQ Kick-Off party for the Floral City Strawberry Festival was a huge success again this year, even with the wet and chilly weather. You all came out anyway and exemplified the sturdy folks we have here. Rain or shine, cold or hot, you all support us no matter what.

    I would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of the Floral City Merchants Association and the community at large, to extend a warm and heartfelt thanks to all of our sponsors, volunteers, members and friends of Floral City.

  • Tiny 'city' shouldn't complain

    I always thought an incorporated city was a legally defined government entity with powers delegated by the state and county and approved by the majority of voters residing in that area. Population numbers are used to define its nomenclature:

    Hamlet, 1,000 to 10,000; village, 10,000 to 100,000; town, 100,000 to 1 million; city, 1 million to 10 million; metropolis, 10 million and over.

  • We can help, if you help
  • $54 sounds pretty good
  • War memorials in conflict with people movement
  • Time to buy a boat

    As it is with those who would criticize policies and issues without offering alternatives, people who tend to describe what the other (fill in the blank — liberals, conservatives, tea party, religion, race, etc.), think or represent also lose credibility in their arguments and the opportunity for meaningful dialogue. 

  • Political scams

    Thanks to our state and local leaders, Florida is now the scam capital of America (give yourselves a pat on the back). Our own Homosassa has come in second worst in America per capita for scams and fraud. 

  • Dewey’s socialist ideals shaped U.S. education

    Since the Chronicle has published two letters attacking my remarks on the relationship between socialism and education in America, perhaps they will allow me one more letter. The latest author suggested I consult Wikipedia. I usually do, but my searches never stop there. I prefer Google as my search engine and when I type in “socialism in education,” I get all kinds of interesting leads, including Wikipedia.
