Letters

  • Funny definition of success

    On Saturday, April 4, a letter written by Steven Schuemann appeared in the Citrus County Chronicle titled “Obama leading our nation to success.”

    Let’s take a look at that success.

    More jobs? When you count the people that have become discouraged and given up looking for a job, that the government does not count, the national unemployment rate is 23 percent.

  • Don't move veteran monuments

    Somebody now wants to change the Old Courthouse in Inverness. I became a resident of Florida more than 60 years ago. We need people to stop coming here trying to change our beautiful village. We like everything like it is.

    If people want change, they need to go back where they came from and change their own place.

    We don’t want the monuments in the front of the courthouse moved; they have been there as far back as I remember.

  • She makes a difference

    The Chronicle has a gem of a writer in Cortney Stewart. I look forward to every article she writes. This week’s article regarding living in a broken world was insightful. She’s right — brokenness only continues. It’s a choice for many people. World peace is never going to happen because there will always be conflict as long as there is selfishness and free will. Kudos to you Cortney for choosing to dedicate her life to pursuing peace through education and her doctoral studies.

  • Coach — a term of endearment

    “My coach” passed away recently. Kurt Lynn was a swimming instructor, coach and a member of the law enforcement community. He is, and will be greatly missed.

  • Your voice was heard

    Thank you Pat Condray for your letters to the editor. They were a breath of fresh air and intelligence on these pages. I wish I had written my thanks earlier, your words were heard.

  • Car show great success
  • No more Clintons, Bushes

    I hope Americans will be smart and elect the right person for president in 2016. Not Hillary Clinton for sure. She was broke in the White House and it was hard to pay the mortgages on the houses she had. Houses? We are lucky if we can afford one let alone more than one house. 

  • Capital punishment serves as deterrent

    Re: April 6, 2015 Chronicle letter stating capital punishment is equal to murder, for taking another life.

    Any suffering a criminal may receive is minimal and not comparable to the suffering he or she inflicted on the victim, before and during their death.

  • Don't move veteran monuments

    We don’t want the monuments in the front of the courthouse moved; they have been there as far back as I       remember.

  • Your job to decide

    At the April 7 Board of County Commissioners meeting, Commissioner Scott Adams said he would like a referendum to ask the voters if they wanted to continue the municipal services benefit unit (MSBU) that helps fund fire services. This was strictly a political move on his behalf. He knows full well at this point in time the taxpayers would vote this down as they did the 1-cent sales tax increase for road maintenance last year.
