• Cleanup needed to draw tourists

    We read in the pages of the Chronicle about the efforts of local government to increase tourism and the subsequent expenditure of taxpayer dollars to do just that, improve tourist activities and access to garner that tourism. We see and read of tourist publications and Citrus County Visitors Bureau visits to countries where the preponderance of our tourist come from, yet we as a community make no effort to keep our county clean and presentable. 

  • Winds of change

    We can expect sweeping changes to the way the Board of County Commissioners functions now that Scott Adams is no longer a vocal minority, but the chairman of a solid majority. 

  • Library's MIA/POW flag stolen

    I want to thank you for your feature in the Chronicle about the Citrus Springs Memorial Library’s struggles to stay open.

    Now I would like to address something that recently happened at the library.

  • Not a scientist, not a senator

    “I’m not a scientist.” Those words came from Sen. Mitch McConnell from Kentucky when he was asked recently by a reporter if he believed in “global warming.” Since making that irresponsible statement, many GOP members in both the House and Senate have reiterated the same words: “I’m not a scientist.” The question should be asked, “Is he a senator?” No is the answer — he is an enigma.

  • Parade turnout disappointing

    Just a short note of thanks and a bit of sadness about today’s boat parade.

    We and a couple of neighbors bundled up, with lots of layers of clothes and an appropriate amount of alcohol aboard one of our pontoon boats to observe the annual Crystal River Christmas boat parade.

    To the six or seven boats who did a marvelous and yeoman’s job of decorating their boats, a huge thank-you from your admiring friends.

  • Throw away party-line blinders

    Regarding the letter published on Dec. 13, by Mr. Goethe:

  • Truth about community centers

    In response to the letter by Charles Knecht Sr., Sunday, Nov. 23, titled “Looking for fulfilled promises:”

  • Off to a bad start

    I’m not an attorney, but I’m also not stupid. I don’t understand the Board of County Commissioners’ reluctance in enforcing its ordinance prohibiting the removal of solid waste from the county. Notwithstanding any case law or prior precedents, the law supports the ordinance. Citrus County is a non-charter county, and as such, is governed by the laws of the state of Florida. If a power is not specifically granted to the county, they cannot assume it.

  • Parade of Trees thanks you
