• Unite Sandy?

    This letter is in response to several letters Sandy Engelman recently submitted. Apparently, she is an honest and well-meaning person, but like most liberals, she fails to see the trees as she walks through the Democrat Party’s forest of facts.

  • Brainwashing a nation

    The word brainwashing comes to mind as I ponder the state of our nation. Webster’s Dictionary defines brainwashing as follows: “a forcible indoctrination to induce someone to give up basic political, social, or religious beliefs and attitudes and to accept contrasting regimented ideas.”

    Brainwashing also can be defined as “to condition, grill, persuade pressure, indoctrinate, and re-educate.”

  • President won't be president forever

    Newly released emails show Lois Lerner, former director of the IRS Exempt Organizations Division, violated federal law by leaking confidential tax information about tea party groups to the Federal Election Commission.

    The House Ways and Means Committee has referred her case to Attorney General Eric Holder to start criminal proceedings against her.

  • Giving Event very successful

    The Citrus County YMCA takes great pride in offering quality programs to children, youths and adults. The Y does not discriminate against those who are unable to pay, but lends a hand. This is possible through the Y’s People Helping People. These applications grant families financial assistance with programming fees — something that could not be done if not for the generosity of the community.

  • Letter suggests Realtors violate ethics

    Re: “Two sides of the issue,” Letters to the Editor, Page C3, April 6.

    I have no dog in this hunt (Oak Village stub out), but need to shed some light on the subject matter of this letter, as the writer spreads untruths about brokers in general and, in particular, brokers in Clearwater. 

  • Watch for cyclists on roadways

    As a bicycle-only adult who has recently moved to the area after about 2.5 years in the Floral City area, I would like to share a few experiences I have had commuting on U.S. 19.

  • Your phone has an off switch; find it

    I have recently been asked why I do not carry my cell phone with me whenever I leave the house. This is why: My family and friends are very important to me. I love them so much I want them to be free to live their lives as they see fit and not be at my beck and call every minute of the day. What possible reason could I have to report to them my every thought, word and deed throughout the day? I can lace my shoes in the morning by myself and I can untie them when I go to bed at night without seeking guidance from anyone.

  • Give away Beverly Hills recreation center

    In today’s, Hot Corner of the Chronicle, several comments were made, that favor the closing of the Beverly Hills Community Center and Pool. I concur! There are no prudent reasons, I can take into account, for the continuation of this absurd financial drain.
