• This veteran thanks you for haircut

    To the unknown gentleman who paid for my haircut at the Good Fellows barber shop — thank you and God bless from a 96-year-old WWII veteran.

  • Campus rape victim raises good question

    I respect Shayna Lopez-Rivas article in Sunday’s April 24 Commentary. I’m sorry this has happened to you, Ms. Rivas. No woman should have to be forcibly attacked and violated. 

    Owning a gun on campus? Tough subject. Would a Taser have helped? Maybe, maybe not. I appreciate you taking martial arts classes. It’s a step in the right direction. 

  • One bad experience followed by great one

    I have lived in Citrus County for nearly 45 years. During that time, I have done business with a multitude of contractors. Recently, I decided to remodel my swimming pool. I contacted a local pool contractor. We agreed to his quote with a commitment to begin work within two weeks. Sixteen days later, and no word from the pool contractor. No phone calls after I left several messages.  

    I was left out to dry by this local pool builder. 

  • Does he really serve the people?

    In the Monday, April 25, edition of the Chronicle, Mr. Puig attempts to chastise the Chronicle and all citizens who have expressed their disrespect for commissioner Adams’ behavior since he was elected to the county commission. 

  • Not aligned with Obama’s thinking

    In 1962 President Kennedy made a comment very similar to this: “If one missile fired from Cuba lands on American soil, the United States will respond with a full nuclear retaliatory strike against the Soviet Union.” That took courage.

    A few years later President Reagan walked up to a podium in Berlin and made a comment very similar to this: “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” That took vision.

  • Some people more klunky than others

    Recently, I bought a television for the kitchen shelf. Not being a modern person, I was amazed at how thin this Vizio is, wondering how so much stuff could be crammed inside to produce an amazingly clear picture.

    I also have a very skinny Toshiba laptop computer, but this is where my modernization stops. The wires and black boxes that hook up and operate phones, Internet, and cable TV are a confusing mass which I try to conceal behind a more attractive mass.

  • Join in on fun boating event Nov. 12

    You are invited to the Lake Hernando Dragon Boat Festival on Nov. 12 in Hernando.

    This regional, multi-county charitable event will be a fun, team building event that you won’t want to miss.

  • Bathroom law ridiculous

    The so-called North Carolina “Bathroom Law” is so ridiculous! It is mind blowing! I grew up with bathroom segregation by race. Are we really going backward with tolerance toward our fellow man or woman?

    It is just as stupid as some of the outdated laws which have thankfully been eliminated. If a person has a legal gender change, then he or she is legally that gender. Who cares?

  • Thanks for Pine Ridge Auto Show

    FOCCAS (Friends of Citrus County Animal Services) would like to thank the many individuals and businesses who made this show happen. We couldn’t have asked for a better day for the April 9 auto show. The Pine Ridge Community/Equestrian Center graciously hosted the event on their beautiful grounds. Stu Barnette, Steve Levreault and Thomas Maslanka organized everything and made it happen. The Pine Ridge Auto Show was a success, and the unwanted/abandoned pets of Citrus County are the beneficiaries. 

  • Why do you live in Citrus County?

    As the chairman of the board of CareerSource stated in last Sunday’s Chronicle: We are a primarily retirement/service based community ... that is because most of us chose to retire in a quite rural nature coastal area of Florida rather than a New Port Richey environment. If you want four lanes today growing to eight lanes 20 years from now ... you do not have to wait 20 years. Just move to any major metro area in Florida and you got it now.
