• Low hopes for highest office
  • Those darn ads!

    Count me as among those who find all those negative political ads — no matter about whom or from whom — to be a waste of time and disgrace to the basic principles of honesty, civility and democracy.

  • Liberals say the darndest things

    A recent letter protests that Henry Ford was a socialist because he paid his workers more than other auto manufacturers.

    Actually, paying assembly line workers enough money to afford the cars they were building engendered worker loyalty, which reduced absenteeism, workplace drunkenness and shoddy workmanship, which increased production, the quality of his cars and as a result, his profits.

  • Take executive order one step further

    Thank you for the Oct. 7 letter by local resident, Suzan Franks, former state representative of New Hampshire, and her story about her very noble legislation — HB 92 for permanently disabled veterans being exempted from the requirement of reestablishing their disability status for the N.H. Department of Motor Vehicles.

  • Choose between Mayberry and Manhattan

    Citrus County officials made a huge mistake by granting a permit for the “Great Florida Yard Sale.”

  • Right to be cynical about Gulf Wars

    Do you ever wonder why the military of a given country always need more training when the rebels, terrorists, separatists, jihadists, (take your pick) are seemingly battlefield ready almost immediately, even those coming from cities in the West? 

  • Vote out Democrats

    Well, it is almost that time to get out and vote. We gave the Democrats six years and all they did was trash our country. I think it is time to throw them all out and start anew. All we can do is pray that whoever does come in will take care of this country better than Obama or any of the Democrats at this point. Think hard before you vote. 

  • Election boils down to representation

    Re: Homosassa Special Water District Seat 2 Article Oct. 8, 2014, “Issue No. 1: All about the water tower.” 

    The election is not all about the water tower. That decision has already been made by the board that the tank will either be sold to the preservation group (which the board prefers) or be torn down by the end of the year. That means this will not be on the agenda going forward. 

  • Fire Ambulance service

    Recently on a trip into the city of Ocala, going to the eye doctor. I saw a red fire rescue ambulance park at Gateway plaza. I was able to speak to the men and found out just what they do as to life support services. These men are all trained paramedics and perform advance life support services at any scene they approach. 

    I am trying to keep this letter simple and to the point. This is what we need here in Citrus County.
