  • 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.

  • Thanks for supporting idea whose time has come

    Thank you Chronicle and staff writer Nancy Kennedy for the story on Citrus County’s Operation Welcome Home proposal to the city of Inverness regarding a parade May 2, 2015, honoring Vietnam War veterans, former prisoners of war, our missing in action, and their families. It was an honor to represent Operation Welcome Home and appear before the city’s gracious and professional group who unanimously approved our request.

  • Rumble strips the answer

    To reduce speeding through the traffic light intersection in Floral City, I suggest the use of rumble strips on U.S. 41. They work. They require little if any maintenance. Installation is relatively inexpensive, a lot cheaper than a bypass. Signs on the approaches could provide a warning.

    The ones on 180th Street between State Road 40 and Marion County Road 484 near the Dunnellon schools, east of that city, are very effective.

  • Case of mistaken identity

    A few weeks ago a woman was being mistaken for the teenager who wanted to sue her parents for not paying for her education. This woman’s first and last names were identical to this teenager’s name. I felt sorry for her because I go through the same thing in Inverness. The only difference is that only my first name is the same and the last names are not even close.

  • Impeach Obama

    I am sure by now everyone knows Obamacare has been a disaster. It is not going to get better.
