  • There is a difference

    Perhaps I am being too sensitive, or insensitive, as the case may be but I am disturbed that many people cannot seem to distinguish between Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Well-meaning people far too often conflate the two very distinct 

  • Show support for supporter of veterans

    There is a woman in Citrus County who dedicates every spare hour of every day to seeing our veterans are not forgotten. Her name is Barbara Mills. Her place of employment is RE/MAX Reality, in Inverness.

  • Be responsible pet owners

    Ellen B. Miller validates my position. She admits pet owners cause pet overpopulation. She says owners should pay for their pets, then why are they begging for the public to pay for — and fund the operation of the pet shelter? She goes on to mention all the ways animals are used, but fails to mention when the family pet becomes a nuisance to society. 

  • Don’t pave vacant streets

    It is apparent that the folks in office clearly bend toward big builders when they consider paving streets with no homes. What ever happened to considering all the taxpayers?

    Our county can be justifiably proud of another successful postal service food drive and the many families that will benefit. It takes the generosity of many citizens and the hard work of the many letter-carriers who filled their vehicles with so much donated food for those less fortunate.

    Re: Adams asks FBI to investigate jail contract, By Mike Wright, May, 20, 2015

    Commissioner Scott Adams could be wrong about illegalities within the county’s various contracts with CCA, but he’s made three things clear: 

    1) A late ’90s BOCC swallowed a tapeworm when it privatized the jail, and that parasite grows as it goes, 

  • Worried about the wrong structures

    About those war memorial monuments that won’t be relocated, as per the Board of County Commissioners, not one of whom is a veteran.

    The Old Citrus County Courthouse’s grounds are a bit of an eyesore. The monuments deserve a better home.

    In fact, the building itself wouldn’t win any prizes. And what about the those window treatments? Then consider the very placement of the courthouse: Plunk! Right where it ought not be.
